Rowan The Eyeless Dog, Sees Like Bats & Dolphins

Hosted by

Hosted by
All warm blooded animals were created by God to have five basic senses. However, when we lose our sight, or are born blind, we find it difficult to deal with a world made for those who see. Blind people cope in a world built for eyes by using trained guide dogs. It has been a partnership that both man and dog have learned to appreciate and love.

Well, what I have for you today is a video of a German Spitz dog named Rowan, who was born with no eyes. Except for his owner who takes care of him, he has no seeing-eye human. I guess you can say he is blessed in that he still has the senses that all dogs use to communicate with each other. He also doesn't feel less of a dog because he cannot see. After all, as far as he is concerned, eyes don't exist for anyone. So you probably wonder how he gets around to learn his surroundings if he cannot see.

When Your Children Ask, “What Happened?” Tell Them That Americans Said “It Didn’t Matter”

(Could someone please lock the door and throw away the key?)

From May 25 to September 17, 1787, 55 men attended the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. Their plan was to create a government that would be effective in carrying out it’s essential tasks, such as foreign policy and national defense. A government that would not resemble the European governments, where the exercise of governmental power was arbitrary and without limits. These men spent 116 days in a room with the doors locked and all the windows closed, at a time when air conditioning did not exist. They wanted to create a Constitution that would constrain the power of the government over the people while still guaranteeing a representative processes of government.

After the constitution was finalized, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin;
“Well Doctor, what have we got, a Republic or a Monarchy?”
To which Mr. Franklin replied,
A republic, madam – if you can keep it.
Today we are on the verge of replacing the rights given to us by those men, with a government that will be in control of all aspects of our everyday life. In 2010 Americans stood up and told the government we want our freedom back. In 2012, the Americans stood firm in their demand by keeping a divided government that was supposed to limit it’s influence over our lives.

Obama was reelected, but not because Americans approved of his job, he was reelected because 4 million conservatives stayed home. Now we must live with him until he is termed out, but it doesn’t mean we have to like him, or agree with him. The vast majority of those who did vote for him, were unaware of many things he has done.

Obama Continues to Accuse Others For What He Is Responsible For

To begin with, the sequester is all about the amount of spending growth over last years budget. We are ultimately talking about $85 billion dollars.  Now consider the fact that Obama has been spending like a drunken sailor on shore leave at the tune of $5.8 trillion in his first term. Think about that for a moment……………… Finished contemplating that?  Ok.
Before you go any further, I strongly advise you to watch this short video (4 min) with Comedian Adam Carolla. Adam offers some great advice on how we as humans can start taking responsibility for things in our lives. It is a video I wish all politicians, especially Obama, would watch. After all, they all claim they only want to make the world a better place to live in. Well Adam gives some good advice on how we all can make sure that the life we live, will be one that leaves the world a better place after we are gone than it was before we arrived.
So we have this drunken sailor running around like Chicken Little, attempting to scare the country into believing the world is going to end over an $85 billion reduction in the increase of spending over last year.  Yet now we learn from CNN that he is giving the Syrian rebels $60 million.  You think maybe he should begin reducing his spending by saying no the Muslim Brotherhood terrorists, who controls the rebels which are fighting Assad in Syria?  By the way, these are the very same terrorists who are also indiscriminately murdering Christians.

Why is Obama Trying To Stop Military Personnel From Ohio From Voting Early?

While the president has his Attorney General, Eric Holder, suing the hell out of the states that passed voter ID laws, Obama is also suing to stop the members of the armed forces from voting in Ohio. While the Obama administration is suing to stop Florida from purging 182,000 illegal aliens from voter registration rolls, he and the Democrats are asking the courts to stop the men and women of the military from voting in Ohio.
Since Obama became president, over 30 states have passed some form of voter ID law. In each instance, these states have all faced lawsuits from either the Democrat party, Obama, the ACLU, or some other entity of the left. With the Obama administration now suing Ohio to limit the military vote, we seem to have come full circle from 2002 when Al Gore and the Democrats tried every dirty trick in the book to steal Florida, including Al Gore's refusal to agree that all absentee military votes should be counted.

Obama's Economic Policies Has Put America on the Verge of Collapse

The Obama administration has released an economic report that claims everything is coming up roses, and it is making the rounds of the MSM's news outlets. Truth is, when you look into the numbers, it's rather easy to come to the conclusion that the economic reports are as screwy as the administration's employment numbers. In order to convince Americans that his economic measures are working, Obama is claiming there has been an increase in retail sales from December to January by a seasonally adjusted .4%. The administration goes on to explain that while the economy is moving in a positive direction, it is still slow. They also point out that the recently reported gains reduced unemployment to 8.3%, proving that Socialist economic policies are working. However, Obama's unemployment numbers have since been proven to be lies. Have I stated that we are in an election year and that Obama needs to get re-elected in order to continue transforming the greatest country in the history of mankind into a Soviet style basket case? To assist in the destruction, the MSM has been knowingly repeating this administration's lies.
(click on image to enlarge)
Instead of reporting how America's real unemployment is actually up between 19 and 25%, they report that Obama has been able to get unemployment down to 8.3%. Instead of reporting that the government is spending more money than it is taking in, and that retail sales have dropped by almost $100 billion from December to January, we are told by the administration's propaganda machine that retail sales have increased by .4%. In an election year, the MSM will do everything in their power to convince Americans that Obama is even greater than Ronald Reagan. We will be fed report after report that proves Socialism is the way to go, and that we need to keep Obama in office so that we will never again return to the days of unchecked capitalism that only allowed the top 1% of society to benefit.
Just like the Soviet Union lies to their people by telling them everything is great, we now have an administration that operates the same way. This can only work with a willing and compliant media, such as the Soviet Union had in Pravda. Well thanks to the MSM, a vast portion of the public believe what they are told, and what they are told are pernicious lies. The end game for them is to get the same uneducated Americans who voted for Obama in 2008, to do so again. Below is an excerpt from AJC that is like every other report the MSM writes about the economic numbers released by Obama's administration. It makes me wonder how any reporter can write such drivel with a straight face when they have the same numbers available that I used to learn the truth about our economy losing a record $98.5 billion in retail sales from December to January.

Retail sales rebound as consumers step up spending
    Americans rebounded from a weak holiday season and stepped up spending on retail goods in January. The latest government report on retail sales pointed to a slowly improving economy. Retail sales rose at a seasonally adjusted 0.4 percent last month, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Consumers spent more on electronics, home and garden supplies, sporting goods, at department and general merchandise stores and at restaurants and bars. They also paid higher prices for gas. Consumers spent less on cars in January, the report showed, even though automakers have previously reported higher sales in January. That may have been because dealers offered more discounts.

I have said it before, and I will continue to report it every time I write about the economy, "It's an election year," and the left needs Obama and his Chicago thugs to continue their assault upon reality by feeding the public cooked numbers. Obama is able to do so because the MSM has abandoned all pretext of being unbiased. Sadly, the MSM news outlets like AP, Newsweek, Time, New York Times, Sacramento Bee, Chicago Tribune, Boston Globe, ABC, NBC, CBC, PBS, and yes even FOX have all been reduced to nothing more than a huge propaganda machine for the Democrat party. There was a time when this administration would feed some numbers to the MSM, and a week later they would correct them when no one was paying attention, but those days are gone. Now the MSM will report anything that makes the administration look good without even questioning it.
These numbers are not that difficult to find, even if you need a community organizer to explain how $100 billion in lost sales is a good thing. The more I look at the numbers put out by these crooks, the more I want to know if they use the million man math to calculate things. Which is why Zero Hedge has this to say about the report. They are also offering $10,000 to anyone working for the administration that would be willing to share the spreadsheets used to get at the numbers they report to their propaganda ministers in the MSM.

Zero Hedge Offers $10,000 for inside info on BLS would be far more useful if the BLS and Census Bureau's were to open up their models and explain in nuanced detail just what "old normal" adjustments they still incorporate into data sets. Because as many have already noted, seasonal adjustments used for data from 1980 to 2008 when "up" was the only allowed direction for everything, are completely irrelevant and misleading in the New Deleveraging Normal. Which reminds us: Zero Hedge will offer $10,000 to the first BLS employee to share with us the full and complete excel model set, including assumptions, data tables, and comprehensive output parameters that the agency uses to go from input A to output X. We hope that by spending that money we will finally do society a service and open up to everyone just how it is that the BLS adjusts its Non-Farm Payrolls data.

Another point of interest for those of you who think I'm just another right wing nut making a mountain out of a molehill, I offer the graph below that shows how much gasoline is delivered by the refineries. It seems like Americans are not buying gas. If Americans are not buying gas, that means they are not driving to stores to buy anything other than the necessities. Thus the refineries are not delivering as much gas to the local service station. Americans are staying home because of their stagnant income, which in turn does not require as many stops at the gas station. Please note that the last two data points on the right of the graph below indicate a historic low amount of gas being delivered to retail service stations. All you need to do is connect the dots, and you will understand how retail gasoline deliveries directly impact retail sales across the board. So get ready for an economically disastrous summer that we have already been told will come with higher gas pump prices.

To Get Re-Elected, Obama Has Decided to Eliminate 1.2 Million More Americans From Labor Statistics

It's an election year, and the MSM wants to make sure Obama looks good. So they will repeat any lie the administration feeds the public without ever pointing out the truth. So when the administration released the news that America has added 243,000 new jobs in January, and that the unemployment rate fall to 8.3%, instead of questioning it, they repeat it as fact.
The problem is that the MSM is not reporting that the number of people out of work who fell off the benefit rolls. See, the government reports are written to make politicians look good, and Obama needs to look good. So instead of reporting that the administration just arbitrarily dropped 1.2 million unemployed Americans from the unemployment statistics, the MSM is euphoric that Obama has improved our economic situation in America.
However, they do not report that the administration just dropped 1.2 million Americans from the statistics as if they do not even exist any longer.
That is the largest absolute jump in 'Persons Not In Labor Force' on record ... and the biggest percentage jump in thirty years. At this rate, Obama just has to drop a million more people between now and November, and by the time Americans enter the voting booth, unemployment will have dropped below 7% without adding one job.

not in labor force january 2012

Persons not in the labor force, numbers from Bureau of Labor Statistics. Click image to see full size.

The graph here proves the president and the MSM are not being honest with us. Unfortunately, unless they are given the charts by the media, most Americans will never have a way to know the truth. Plus, the vast majority of Americans will never even look for facts that might prove the politicians and media are being dishonest with us. After all, why would a man, who we are told by the MSM is the smartest, most honest to ever walk amongst us, actually lie to us? Yet he is telling lies, and the graphs and numbers prove it. I repeat, it's an election year, and the left needs Obama re-elected to continue its assault on capitalism so they can continue enslaving Americans into socialism.
How do they do it you may ask. Well one way is to convince Americans that the economy is improving, and who would want to change horses in the middle of a stream if the economy is improving.
Another way is to continue their class warfare assault on the very segment of society that hires Americans, the rich. Then we also see that all of a sudden the MSM is reporting that there are less Americans who are homeless. Less homeless Americans means more Americans are living a better life. So regardless of the fact that a record number of Americans are having their homes foreclosed on them, we have less people living in the streets.
One more thing, with all this robust improvement in the economy, its time to raise taxes on the segment of society that is supposed to be creating this great economy Obama claims we have. He even claims that Jesus Himself would tax the rich to help the economic improvement to continue. Never mind that Jesus never once told His followers to look to Herod for help, nor did He ever tell Herod to raise taxes on the rich.

Porn Star Reads to Elementary School Kids

by Chuck Wolk

Our education system has reached the depths of which many of us never thought was possible. However, what did we expect we let the courts kicked God out of the classroom, the teachers to unionize and then the federal government to take them over? Now it seems we are confronted with story after story about the way our public schools system is teaching our children about sex education at an earlier and earlier age. Earlier this year in Oakland a teacher was investigated for allowing two of his second-grade students to engage in oral sex while some other children were seen running around without their clothes on. I never did hear about the results from the investigation, but I am sure the union made sure the whole affair was covered up and forgotten about. Although I do wonder if the teacher was telling his students that oral sex is not sex, thank you Bill Clinton.
The American people expect our schools to protect our children from such things, not open up eyes to the different ways sex can be enjoyed, or that heather has two mommies. Things have gotten so out of whack that now we learn about an adult porn star reading to 1st graders in a Compton elementary school. As much as the school itself tried to deny it was happening, you can see from the photos below above and the series of photos below that Sasha Grey was in the classroom and she was reading to the children.

Cain Accuser was Involved in Return of Elian Gonzalez to Cuba, & Now Works For Obama Administration

At the center of the allegations against Herman Cain is current Obama administration employee, who was also the spokeswoman for Janet Reno during the Elian Gonzales fiasco during the Clinton Presidency.  For those unfamiliar with Elian Gonzalez, he was a young boy who survived an ill-fated trip to America in November 1999. Twelve Cubans set out for Cuba in an unstable boat, but only Elian and one other person would make it to America alive. Elizabeth Gonzales was attempting to do something that has been done more than a thousand times since Castro's revolution that brought communism to the tiny island. Elian's mother gave her life so that her son could be raised in freedom, but it was never to be.
After floating in the ocean on a tube for days, Elian and one other survivor was eventually rescued by two fishermen who turned him over to the U.S. Coast Guard. There is a law that states that if a Cuban refugee makes it to American soil, they must be allowed to stay. At first the U.S. authorities gave Elian over to his paternal great uncle, but his father in Cuba claimed not to have known he was taken taken from Cuba and demanded his return.  Since young Elian never made it to land, the stage was set for a tragic ending where no one would win, especially young Elian.

Video of Black Girls Beating White Girl While Employess Watch, Hate Crime?

What I have for you here is an example of a racists black on white crime, that many on the left will never mention when accusing white people in America of being racists. At a McDonald's a customer or employee is filming two black girls mercilessly beating a white girl until she is laying in a corner convulsing while near death. The manager who is also black makes a weak attempt at stopping the beating, but you can tell he is not interested in stopping it, or he would have had his employees who are also watching help him help the girl. What the manager should have done was get the girls out, lock the doors and await the police and ambulance. It is not until the two black girls try to drag the helpless white outside that someone, and older white woman steps in to help.

Mind you, these girls are entering and exiting the fast food restaurant and no one is trying to keep them from doing so. remember, the the black male employees have disappeared from camera view, even though they are plenty well capable of stopping the attack. It is not until the girls is shaking violently with seizures that the black guy recording the while incident warns the girls to leave before the cops arrive. He seemed to be more worried that the girls would get arrested then about the white girls safety.

Ben Underwood, The Eyeless Boy Who Could See As Good As If He Had Eyes (Video)

Hosted by I wrote this story a few years ago, and I thought it would be a good one to retell. It's a story of a boy who lost his eyes to cancer at the young age of three, but you would never have known it if you had seen him riding his bike.

Ben Underwood was just a few weeks shy of his third birthday when his eyes were surgically removed because of retinal cancer. With his Mother pushing him to use the senses he still had in order to get around, Ben began learning to live like most blind individuals, but only until he started doing things that only sighted people can do.

As he got older, Ben began playing games like Foosball, and he rode bicycles, electric scooters, roller-blades, and he even had a yellow belt in Karate. If his brothers or sisters were doing something, then like all young children, he wanted to try it too. Those who knew Ben, knew that he never shied away from trying something new, not even video games.

Mexican drug cartel threatens Nogales police officers

Could someone tell me why the federal government is not giving the Mexican President an ultimatum that if he does not take care of the drug lords, we will? It was just two weeks ago I reported about the drug cartel pirates chasing fishermen on Falcon lake in an attempt to steal money and equipment from them, now we learn about the death threats to American police officers. This is war, and if the Mexican government cannot do something, then it is the federal governments job to take care of it.

Now the report does say that the drug lords are only telling the officers to turn their back when they are off duty, their are not expecting the police to shirk their duty while on the clock. See, that's how they start, and that how Mexico got where it's at with the drug lords running things. If a man is a policeman, then he is an officer off the clock as well as on the clock. So for them to threaten the officers off the clock means they are threatening the officers on the clock.

The Dinner Roll

Richard Gleaves

This was emailed to me, but credit must go to Richard Gleaves as amended. You can reach his blog here; "Uncommon Sense"

Once upon a time I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with
the President.

I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces memory chips for
computers and portable electronics.

There was some talk that my industry was being scrutinized by the
administration, but I paid it no mind.  I live in a FREE country.  There's
nothing that the government can do to me if I've broken no laws.  My wealth
was EARNED honestly, and an invitation to dinner with an American President
is an honor.

I checked my coat, was greeted by the Chief of Staff, and joined the
President in a yellow dining room.

We sat across from each other at a table draped in white linen.  The Great
Seal was embossed on the china.  Uniformed staff served our dinner.

The meal was served, and I was startled when my waiter suddenly reached out,
plucked a dinner roll off my plate and began nibbling it as he walked back
to the kitchen..

"Sorry 'bout that," said the President. "Andrew is very hungry."

"I don't appreciate..." I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes
across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty.  It was just a dinner
roll. "Of course," I concluded, and reached for my glass.

Before I could, however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away
and swallowed the wine in a single gulp.  "And his brother, Eric, is very
thirsty," said the President.

I didn't say anything.  The President is testing my compassion, I thought.
I withheld my comments and decided to play along.  I don't want to seem

My plate was whisked away before I had tasted a bite.

"Eric's children are also quite hungry."

With a lurch, I crashed to the floor.  My chair had been pulled out from
under me.

I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was carried from the

And their grandmother can't stand for long."

I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool.
Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game.
I reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken.

I turned back to the President.

"Their grandfather doesn't like the cold."

I wanted to shout, "that was my coat!"  But again, I looked at the placid
smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport.  I spread my
hands helplessly and chuckled.

Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my wallet was gone.  I excused myself
and walked to a phone on an elegant side table.

I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank accounts
emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my wife had
been thrown out of our home.

Apparently, the waiters and their families were moving in.  The President
hadn't moved or spoken as I learned all this, but finally I lowered the
phone into its cradle and turned to face him.

"Andrew's whole family has made bad financial decisions.  They haven't
planned for retirement and they need a house.  They recently defaulted on a
sub-prime mortgage.  I told them they could have your home.  They need it
more than you do."

My hands were shaking.  I felt faint I stumbled back to the table and knelt
on the floor.

The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak, and drank his wine.  I
lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth that
were water drops.

"By the way," he added, "I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing
your factories.

I'm firing you as head of your business.  I'll be operating the firm now for
the benefit of all mankind.

There's a whole bunch of Erics and Andrews out there and they can't come to
you for jobs groveling like beggars...we need to spread YOUR wealth

I looked up.  The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which
had been his crme Brule.

He drained the last drops of his wine.  As the table was cleared, he lit a
cigarette and leaned back in his chair.

He stared at me.  I clung to the edge of the table as if it were a ledge and
I were a man hanging over an abyss.

I thought of the years behind me, of the life I had lived.  The life I had
earned with a lifetime of work, risk and struggle.

Why was I punished?  How had I allowed it to be taken?  What game had I
played and lost?  I looked across the table and noticed with some surprise
that there was no game board between us.

What had I done wrong?

As if answering the unspoken thought, President Obama suddenly cocked his
head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling
wryly as he folded his hands.

"You should have stopped me at the dinner roll," he said.

Gone Fishing

It has been a very long and hectic year for me, and I find myself a bit burned out and and not very creative. Oh I realize it is only March 8th, but the past 12 months of my life have been very strenuous. I have tried time and time again to actually step back and slow down, just to find my self being pulled back to do even more then I was before. Well, I truly believe that now is the time for me to take a hiatus from my writing. I have been blessed in that the Lord has led some who have volunteered to write some articles and thus step up to assist me in keeping my blogs somewhat up to date. These guest writers will write articles and Sunday messages as the Lord moves them.
I have also been blessed that my local hometown newspaper the "Enterprise Record", has offered me my own blog with their paper. It is an opportunity I cannot pass up, and so I have agreed to take the opportunity to widen my reach for the Lord's word, and for my political opinions. I have written for the Post Script blog, but just as a guest writer, this will be something I have complete control over. Considering the troubles I have had with the editor at PS the last few months, this is a blessing from God, since I will now unencumbered to state my opinions from now on. I have yet to come up with a name for it and if anyone has an idea of a name I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on it. Being an official newspaper, I will automatically have the advantage of their reputation behind me, that is what reputation any paper has left in today's world. However it is still better then a normal blogspot that many are limited to, and it is the same newspaper that Anthony Watts writes his blog, "Watts Up With That" for.

Well I will not begin my blogging for the ER until May 1st, so until then I would like to say thanks and God bless to you all. This blog, "Gate of the City Ministry", my political blog, "The Way One Vike Sees It" and my video blog, "Interesting, Weird, & Educational Videos " will all cease to exist as of may 1st when I combine them all into the ER blog I am being given.

I guess it's time to pack up the cooler, the ramps and the fishing gear for a trip to the Feather river. Maybe I can finally catch that California brown trout that got away from me last spring. Please keep my wife and I both in your prayers, as we both pray for God's abundant grace for you all. As I fade away down the river, please enjoy this psalm I wrote a few years ago.

The 50 Points of the Retrosexual / Neosexual Code, for Real Men Today

by guest writer,
Tom Hawks

This whole Retrosexual term and idea was first brought to my attention by
a Freeper named ExSoldier who commented to an article written by One Vike that posted at Freerepublic titled, "Sorry Obama but Women Desire Real Men".  I looked around for the genesis of this list and found out from Michelle Malkin site that the author of the Retrosexual Code is Grau Magus, whose anti-metrosexual manifesto has made the rounds on of the Internet and eventually took on a life of its own.  Now you can find the list in many places and with many various points added onto it.  There is even a facebook site named, The Retrosexual Code that men of like minds can join to share and discuss the way they see the feminization of the modern man.

The list or I should say, the code I am sharing is actually a cleaned up version of what Freeper,
ExSoldier posted on FR with a few changes but none that would be substantial. I am adding the phrase "Neosexual" to the title of the code also as it better fits because of the poll that OV used in his article which brought this code to my attention used the phrase. Unfortunately the blog that had the original rant and list have long been removed from the web for whatever reason that only the author would know. Here is what remains from the original rant by Mrs, or Miss Grau Magus. 

Ok folks, I have had it. I've taken all I can stand and I can't stand no more. Every time my TV is on, all that can be seen is effeminate men prancing about, redecorating houses and talking about foreign concepts like "style" and "feng shui." Heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, trans-sexual, metrosexual, non-sexual; blue, green, and purple-sexual-bogus definitions have taken over the urban and suburban world!

Real men of the world, stand up, scratch your butt, belch, and yell "ENOUGH!" I hereby announce the start of a new offensive in the culture wars, the Retrosexual movement.

Sorry Obama but Women Desire Real Men, Not Metrosexuals

by One Vike

For the last decade, American men have been inundated with the idea that women prefer men who are in touch with their feminine side, men who are not afraid to spend a little extra time in front of the mirror, and maybe even wear a little make up to highlight the features of their face. We are told that men like John Kerry and Barack Obama are what women really want. Men who are not only unashamed of their femininity, but men who will even go so far as to display such faith in their feminism in public as Obama has time and time again.

Well, please allow me to set the record straight, because it seems that Al Gore, John Kerry, and Barack Obama are really not the type men that turn the ladies on. I found this survey from a deodorant company that inherently, just makes sense to me. I had not heard of this survey before now, but I have read numerous reports in Australian and European papers about it. I'd link you to the survey itself, if only I could find it, but like many polls and surveys it has disappeared within a few months.

Handicapped Bear & A Quadriplegic Man, Proof the World Doesn't Need Socialism

Cartoonist, John Callahan
by OneVike

No one really knows who took this video of a 3 legged black bear, except that it was possibly taken in the Canadian wilderness. I have been told by some reputable sources, that some thought they had actually found the elusive Sasquatch. Unfortunately for those who continue to believe in the story of Big Foot, what they actually found was a mother black bear who had either been born with only one front leg or lost it in a fight at a younger age. When watching this video you will be struck by the almost human aspect of the bear as it walks around upright.

Another thing I would bet you will come away with, is a feeling of sadness for the mother bear. However, the lesson you should glean from this video is that just because a person, or an animal, is handicapped does not mean they are helpless. This bear shows that even the handicapped can survive in the wild with out any extra help from others. Now only if we humans just quit trying to inflict our feelings of sorrow and uselessness upon those who are handicapped, maybe they won't feel the need to depend upon others as much as we make them feel.

Representation for Taxation Is Finally Restored

by OneVike

It is about time the Supreme Court has leveled the political playing field by returning to corporations their right to be represented for the taxes they are burdened with. Our American Revolution was based upon the complaint that the people were taxed without representation, but if American corporations don't have a 1st amendment right to free speech, then they shouldn't be subject to taxation either. So If anyone really dislikes the Supreme Courts ruling and would also like to take your opinion that corporations are not people so they should not have a say so in politics, then I have but one solution that will be fair to all, and that solution would be the government should not be taxing American cooperation's.

Think about it, if you really want to restrict the ability of corporations to influence elections and legislation then I suggest leveling the whole playing field for them by doing away with all taxes paid by them. That means no more corporate income tax, and no more forcing corporations to be servants of local, state, and federal governments. I say servants, because the government forces them to collect the governments taxes, but they do not get reimbursed for their services. After all, that is called forced servitude, and slavery is unconstitutional.

Women Say Some Rape Victims Should Take Blame

by One Vike

Date rape has been in our lexicon for a few decades now, fact is a majority of people have become quite familiar with the lines that separate consensual and non consensual sex. However, our present attitude about rape was not always the same as it is today. There has always been warnings to girls that they should not allow themselves to be in certain situations that could lead to unwanted advances from boys. There has been many a woman who has claimed they were raped while the only defense the man had was the girl allowed things to progress past a point of no return for him.

I remember when I was but 12 years old, and I would accompany my older sister and her friend to the beach. My sisters always wore a one piece, but her friend would always wear this practically see-through white bikini just to lie down on a towel to sunbath. I must admit that I paid close attention to her as she laid there on her towel. After all, I was but six removed from being a full fledged teenager, and my hormones were already beginning to cause problems in my life. It was the late “60”s and I was well aware of the sentiment that we should love the one we were with if we could not be with the one we loved. Then again, I also remember the same girl telling my sister that a boy she was making out with on the beach raped her one day.

My sister convinced her to report it to the police and after some investigation they decided that there was no way they would be able to get a conviction because of the way the girl carried on with the boy on the beach. Now, today the results of the investigation would be much different as we now have the understanding that “no” means “no”, regardless of when during the encounter a girl uses that word. It is true though, that regardless of which side of the argument you agree with, someone will inevitably have a strongly felt conviction of why you are wrong. Personally I believe that everyone involved needs to take responsibility for how they conduct themselves. I also believe that such an accusation or charge can always be avoided if everyone obeyed God's precepts that only couples who are married should be having sex. So in my opinion, obeying this simple command could basically stop 99% of all date rapes.

That being said, I always thought that a majority of people in Western world societies have pretty much felt the same way for at least the last twenty years. That is until I came across this survey about the attitudes of English men and women when it comes to rape. This BBC News survey was conducted from more than 1,000 people. In the survey they found out that 71% of women thought a person should accept responsibility when getting into bed with someone, compared with 57% of men. The survey also found out that more than half of the male and female respondents think that there are some circumstances when a rape victim should accept responsibility for an attack. Thus the claim of date rape, at least in england, does not carry as much weight as it does in America. I am curious as to what the readers of Post Scripts would have to say about the idea that women should take more responsibility if they are attacked and raped by a boyfriend during a date.

As for me, I stated that all sex should be saved for marriage, but I fully understand that we live in a world where people do not obey God's commandments of abstaining from sex until marriage. As a Christian I live by the rule that I should "abstain from all appearance of evil", and by adhering to this rule I have never left myself in a position to be accused of something I could not justifiably defend myself against. That being said, we do live in a society that does catered to the base desires of humans. Now if I were living a life of sin and immorality, and I found myself in a compromising situation then I would first and for most agree that when a woman says “no”, that means “no”. After that point, the guy is guilty of rape if he ignores her pleas, and thus would be responsible for his own actions. However, there should also be a warning to women that they should not be acting in a way that could be misconstrued by the guy she is with on a date. This doesn’t excuse the guy’s actions, but it should be a warning to women to be cautious and sensible.

Superior Swedish Sub Eludes Detection & Sinks American Aircraft Carrier USS Ronald Reagan

by OneVike

Ever since WWII, America has been a dominant force upon the high seas. We have become so advanced in our military technology that the Soviet Union eventually collapsed, in large part because Ronald Reagan would not back down against them. In honor of his accomplishments and great leadership, congress named the worlds largest aircraft carrier after him, the USS Ronald Reagan. Well it has been 22 years since Reagan left office, and while we have been able to hold our status as the worlds most powerful military the world has ever seen, those days could be coming to an end.

Thanks in large part to the anti military sentiment that prevails in Washington, from both sides of the isle, America is losing the war of technical advancement. What you will see in this video is a submarine from Sweden the, NemoSaltadSobrius, that cannot be detected, and even worse it has reportedly sunk our best and most powerful naval ships in mock war games. Check out this report out of San Diego by Chuck Henry, who reports that America is attempting to figure out how to catch in before our enemies discover the secret of its elusiveness.
