Lightning Round – 2013/11/20

Advice to those struggling in the faith.

“Christianity is not about acceptance. It is not about tolerance. It is about separating the wheat from the chaff and dividing the sheep from the goats. In his own words, Jesus makes it perfectly clear that he did not come to bring peace. He is, in fact, the dividing factor.”

They have this at my work, but it is entirely optional. I don’t donate and dislike the United Way because my first year working I used the workplace campaign to donate to World Vision and a local Christian soup kitchen and the UW took about 10% off for administrative costs. I do still go to the pizza and chili fundraisers. Also, it is horribly inefficient as the amount of time (ie. government salary dollars) and resources spent on this campaign far outweigh the meager amounts they do fund-raise.

    I always appreciate your link round-up, thanks

  • ivanovich76

    I don’t get the foodstamp link? Seems like a decent argument for basic income over a bunch f programs that disincentivize work if anything.

  • dannyfrom504

    Thanks for the linkage Canucklehead.

  • zhai2nan2

    White women get scarier every day. Those pictures are going to give me nightmares.

    Re: long hair, there are some men who seem to prefer short-hair on women, but most of us prefer long hair, even on women who can pull short hair off; IMO, and that of others (see comments on that link), they still look even better with long hair.

    I’ve noticed a tendency in my church circles for women who have long hair all through their youth to suddenly chop it off in middle age. I think doing so merely bespeaks contempt for one’s husband, and his tastes; it means one doesn’t give a damn what he thinks. That is contemptible.

    @ ivanovich: The link is trying to drum up support for food stamps by playing on sympathy. To do so, they are using 2 able bodied women who refuse to work, including a girl in her 20s who plans to go on welfare as soon as she’s old enough. These women are complaining about eating better than I do.

    @ Will: I agree. There’s always outliers who like odd things and the desire for short hair is anti-feminine.

  • The Karamazov Idea

    I’ve come to believe Europe is the next great hope. Socialism eventually kills itself. Look across Europe, and the 2nd most popular party in many prominent countries is the reactionary right. You’ve got the Front National in France, the Golden Dawn in Greece, Jobbik in Hungary, and other instances across the continent. The even more stirring thing is that these movements are made up of the youth and the elderly working in concert. They’re not afraid to be called Nazis or racists. The words have lost all meaning in Europe. People are beginning to openly question the scope and accepted events in the holocaust, which has been the biggest single event in deciding European attitude and policy in the 20th and 21st century although nobody can morally justify why.

    As for the police, I had a recent conversation with a broworker (heh). He asked about my love of firearms and commented that he no longer had his. I cracked a joke about them getting confiscated. Turns out they were. Some person he knows was under federal investigation over something and all of his firearms were confiscated without cause or reason. That’s had me thinking and paranoid for a while now. Paying cash may or may not be a good idea. I think there is a national registry of gun owners already. Milling your own receivers is the only viable option if they come, and hiding in some pretty ingenious places.
