Captain Decency: Defending the Indefensible Around the World

With a stroke of his pen, the president reinstated a policy that uses our tax dollars to fund overseas abortions. In fairness, these dollars also help pay for essential medical services in other countries. However, the majority of Americans don’t want their tax money used to fund nonessential abortions here or anywhere else.

President Biden likely believes he’s on the right side of this issue. He probably thinks he’s helping safeguard reproductive rights and save lives. Again, a majority of U.S. taxpayers consider this “right” to be a moral wrong. In truth, many wonder how a president who ran on decency squares this morally.

Joe Biden is the president, but he can never be my captain. His notion of decency is built on the belief that he’s a good guy. Don’t good guys also cherish life and defend those who can’t defend themselves?

How have we come to accept a barbaric procedure in which an unborn baby is literally torn limb from limb in the name of choice?

If you’ve read this far, maybe it’s because you value truth over complacency. Or maybe this post angers you because you truly believe abortion is a right rather than a remover of responsibility and a safety valve for sexual consequences.

I know there will be an accounting for our national sin and shame. I also know that I can only do so much by speaking truth to power, but knowing my tax dollars are helping enable evil around the world makes me feel like an accomplice.

A 1973 judicial sleight of hand doesn’t fool the Captain of our souls. Nor does the incessant drumbeat of a “woman’s right to choose.” Our true Captain made us free to make our choices, but we have no right to deny others theirs.

AHA! Biden’s Speech Changed My Mind (Satire)

I’ve had a change of heart after listening to President Biden the other night…

SATIRE ALERT

I’ve had a change of heart after listening to President Biden the other night. He really made me think it through and I have come to some new conclusions…

I too am sick and tired of you MAGA Republicans. You guys are all semi-fascists. Not “full” fascist, but you know, semi-fascist. I mean just look at you people. Look at what you want to do. As Joe said last night, “the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.” So there! The entire country could literally DIE because of your ideas!

Fascism is “characterized by a dictatorial leader, centralized autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.” I know it sounds like Democrats but it isn’t. Don’t look behind the curtain.

It’s time to be done with you MAGA people. I mean just LOOK at what you support:

You and your “love all people based on their character and merit rather than the color of their skin” baloney. How can we divide people into manageable voting blocks without getting people separated by skin color or how they have sex and with whom? And pronouns. Get with the program, or are you just too dumb to figure it all out? Of course a single person can be “they.” Language is a social construct, idiots.

You and your ilk telling everyone we should be able to “speak freely.” BS! Keep your mouths shut, crazies. Words are violence!

You and the whole “energy independence” sham. What a crock. We should rely on countries that hate us to sell us energy, even though we could produce it on our own. That just makes sense. If you can’t figure that out, well, you are too far gone. No amount of nonsense will make sense to you.

Look at you puritanical mobsters, with your “six year old boys shouldn’t be allowed to transition to little girls.” Who are you to tell a ten year old girl she can’t have her uterus removed? Her body, her choice.

Strong military? Hogwash, you power-mongers! It’s a new world order where we will be taking directions from the Chinese Communist Party, thank you very much. It’s THEIR turn to lead. You think they gave the Biden family $30,000,000 for nothing? Sheesh, you just don’t know how the world works, do you?

Oh, and the idea that you want to protect life? Give me a break. Just because it has a heartbeat, arms, legs, a head, a brain, a fully formed body, blah, blah, blah, does not mean its a baby. SCIENCE!

Keeping inflation in check? Gas prices too high? Get an electric car, you cavemen. Groceries too high? Eat some celery.

Prosecute and imprison violent offenders? Keep it to yourselves, racists! These people DESERVE a 14th chance.

Oh and you want us to honor the flag? No way, imperialist scumbags. It’s not like the flag represents the greatest country ever, one that has helped countries all over the world with aid and military protection. Not like America has been the line between freedom and communist world domination or anything.

Freedom of religion? Not on our watch, fanatics. Power is our God. The Golden Rule? He who has the gold, makes the rules.

The right to bear arms? Yeah, you and every other terrorist. The founders had MUSKETS, so there. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it (Don’t actually, tobacco products are harmful to your health).

Follow the Constitution? It’s 2022, you backwoods imbeciles.

You want to just be left alone? Not on our watch. Not to sound arrogant, but we went to Harvard and Yale, and well, frankly, we’re just smarter than you. We took feminist art studies. What did you take? Accounting? We are the enlightened. It is a new world and we’ll let you know what’s acceptable from now on.

No, President Biden is right. You are a threat to democracy. I mean, really you’re not, but in order to bring down democracy we have to scare the living hell out of most Americans with an enemy we can pin the blame on. But who cares, it’s all in the name of fundamentally transforming America. Take that, you insurrectionist, threat to democracy, semi-fascists. It’s you. YOU are the target now. We will use the FBI, Homeland Security, anything we need to to make sure you can’t spread your crazy ideas.

I’m not going to stand with you freedom-loving fascists anymore. No, I’m throwing in with the kind and loving Democrats. They are far superior to you half-wits. Because they care so much for us they will tell us exactly how to believe, and how to live, and we will like it… or else.

Are You Waiting On God?

God is good. God sees you. God hears your prayers.

How long will you wait on God?

Sometimes it takes a very long time for God to work. Much longer than we would want it to take. But we must persevere in prayer and hope and trust.

For the last seven years I have had a terrible situation in my life. And there was nothing I could do about it except pray.

I’ve never posted about it on Facebook. Probably less than 20 people in the world even know what it is.

It was sad, painful, and hurt like hell every day. But there was absolutely nothing I could do about it. Doing anything hurt the situation so doing nothing but pray to God was the only option.

For seven years I cried out to God. At times I lost hope. I wondered where God was, yet I continued to call out to Him.

And then, one morning a few weeks ago, I woke up, and it was over. The situation changed, literally overnight. It was over, miraculously, without me doing a single thing except waiting on God’s timing.

How long will you wait on God? I know that many of you are going through your own burdens. I know that many of you feel like giving up because the pain is too much. I know exactly how you feel. I’ve lived it for seven years.

But know this, God is good. God sees you. God hears your prayers. God wants to bless you. It is in His timing, however. Your job is to pray, listen, and follow His direction, all the while waiting for Him to make His move.

God has you in His faithful hands. You can trust Him today.
