San Antonio may ban Bible believers from city employment

by Dr. Eowyn

persecution

Are you a Christian who takes seriously the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality?

If you are, and if you live in San Antonio, Texas, you can forget about running for the city council, or getting employment in any city government or business.

Bob Unruh reports for WND, July 23, 2013, that when the San Antonio City Council returns to work from its summer hiatus, it will take up a proposed change to the city's nondiscrimination ordinances that apparently will discriminate against anyone who has ever "demonstrated a bias" against someone based on categories that include "sexual orientation." Such persons will be permanent banned from participation in city government, business or employment.

The proposed change would add "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" to the nondiscrimination ordinances, but it does not define "bias," which, according to local church leaders, could mean someone who declares homosexual behavior is sinful.

 

 

 

The new ordinance would state: "No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability."

 

Anyone in office who demonstrates a bias would be considered guilty of "malfeasance" and removed from office.

Opponents of the proposed plan say it is a violation of constitutional Article VI, paragraph 3, which states, "[N]o religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States."

 

Church leaders who oppose the proposed change argue it violates First Amendment rights to freedom of religion, freedom of speech and freedom of association. The proposed ordinance also violates the Texas Religious Freedom Act and the Texas Constitution.

 

Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, who has been alerting city residents about the issue, told OneNewsNow that the reference to "bias" could mean anything: "The ordinance … says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract. Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract."

 

Flowers calls the measure "unprecedentedly wrong" and said "the citizens of San Antonio must stop it."

 

Many pastors are concerned, reported KHOU-TV's Joe Conger in Houston. More than a dozen church leaders met to discuss the looming issue. They say the proposed ordinance allows the city council "to prohibit those that speak their religious beliefs regarding homosexuality from serving on city boards. For example, if a person publicly expresses their religious belief that homosexual behavior is a sin – even if this expression is at a church service – that person could be frozen out of involvement with city government." Moreover, businesses run by people of faith can also be subject to criminal penalties if they refuse to provide services that conflict with their religious beliefs relating to homosexuality.

 

Pastor Steve Branson of Village Parkway Baptist Church told KHOU, "If you voice any opinion, no matter how many years back it's been, it can be used against you. City employees are going to be greatly affected by this" and could get fired.

 

 

The San Antonio City Council, which declined to advance the plan when it first was discussed, is scheduled to resume talks on the proposed ordinance in August.

An Autopsy of Liberal America




  At best liberals are nothing more than retarded turds.

An Autopsy of Liberal America

http://www.capitolhilldaily.com/2013/07/detroit-liberal-economics/#more

Published Tue, Jul 23rd, 2013   Marty Biancuzzo, Senior Political Analyst

 

Detroit has become something of an American punch line, hasn't it?

But it bears the question: How did one of the most affluent cities in the country become what it is today?

I mean, Christ! I'm talking about the city that brought you the Model T… chrome fenders… and big-block V-8 engine, just to name a few.

I'm talking about the city that once defined what it means to have a thriving industry… a city that boasted one of the highest median incomes in the nation.

Today, it's home to some of the countries most shameful income levels, crime rates, unemployment numbers and education rankings.

In fact, a student in Detroit is statistically more likely to wind up in prison than graduating from high school.

To put it bluntly, Detroit sucks. And the reason why is simple.

You see, Detroit has literally been a laboratory for leftist policies for the last 50 years. It's their "Model City." Their ideological Utopia.

Yet, not even one year after Obama deemed Detroit "saved," the city has officially declared bankruptcy.

And the toxic liberal governance that caused a once-great city to go belly up is being applied to America, as an entire nation, right now…

Liberal Economics Extortion

On October 13th 2012, with roughly one month to go 'til campaign season was over, Barack Obama sat down in front of a video camera and gave his weekly address.

In it, he said something that didn't really seem to add up, but hey… the president said it, so it has to be true, right?

Wrong.

He claimed, "We refused to throw in the towel and do nothing. We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity, and three years later, that bet is paying off in a big way."

Well, On July 19th 2013, not even one year later, Detroit publicly announced its state of financial ruin by filing the largest municipal bankruptcy in United States history.

According to Detroit's Emergency Financial Manager, Kevyn Orr, the city's debt totals an astounding $18 billion.

The reason? Liberal economics.

Liberal economics has been running rampant in Detroit for over 50 years. An extremely long and ugly chapter out of the progressive playbook…

Think of how much Obama has promised the nation, and how every time he's guaranteed that not one penny will be added to the deficit. Well, we free thinking individuals can't help but ask: How the heck are you going to pay for all those handouts?

Detroit has been the beneficiary of every single government handout and program known to man. It's literally the city of entitlements. And because of that, it's paid a heavy price.

Amazingly, though, in spite of these demoralizing realities, the city remains hitched to the Democratic Party wagon. In the 2012 election, Barack Obama received 98% of the vote, while other Democratic candidates won by a landslide too…

Compassionate Crooked Politicians

Liberal politicians pride themselves on their "for the greater good" approach to politics. And people eat that garbage up…

It's sickening really.

Leftist politicians always tout their policies as the end-all solution to helping the poor, giving their "fellow man" a leg up, and spreading equal prosperity to all.

Well, in the 1960s that theory and those policies were put to the ultimate test…

President Lyndon B Johnson established the "Model Cities" program, where select cities were used as federal petri dishes. It was an effort to see what type of environment would evolve from extreme progressive agenda.

Johnson dumped $490 million federal dollars into the Detroit project alone… a project that spanned a nine-mile radius and was inhabited by 130,000 citizens.

It was considered to be the first great step towards exemplary urban planning. Their "model city" was meant to be a blueprint for the rest of the country to follow.

Instead, what evolved was a state dependent on government handouts. In fact, it was the furthest thing from what anyone would consider a model city.

The program, along with the corrupt leftist politicians and bureaucrats running it, robbed Detroit of the American Dream by taking everything away from the people and granting total authority to the government.

Considering the quality of leaders running the city, its descent into ruination shouldn't come as a surprise. Leadership that's been strictly Democratic for over 50 years, mind you.

PoliticalCorruption

Consistent scandal… Partisan branded racism… Sound familiar?

But the corrupt politicians weren't the only causes for Detroit's demise…

Union Power Profiteering

Of course, Liberal politicians aren't the only ones flexing their power… the people laying in bed with them are too. Those people collectively form the Unions…And when it comes to unions, it doesn't get any more despicable and corrupt than Detroit's factory and teacher unions.

The teacher unions are responsible for one of the most degenerate school systems in the nation. And it certainly has nothing to do with a lack of funding…

Detroit receives roughly $12,000 per student compared to the national average of $9,600. Yet Detroit students face a graduation rate of 25% — making it statistically more likely for a child in Detroit to end up in prison versus graduating from high school.

You have to ask yourself… how has the mighty teachers union failed the students so dramatically?

The truth of the matter is, not only do they pad their pockets with federal funding, but they've also consistently refused to bend on several policies that would benefit the students.

Policies like merit based pay, increased student to teacher ratios and incentivized teacher programs. Even the School Choice program that's seen tremendous success all over the nation has been rejected.

Worse still is the United Auto Workers Union (UAW). Through dangerously irresponsible mismanagement, they too have contributed to Detroit's decay.

You see, the UAW doesn't know the meaning of "concessions."

Fully aware of the fact that the Big 3 would inevitably have to file for bankruptcy, the UAW still made sure that they received the following:

  • 7 weeks paid vacation each year
  • Maintained job banks (Where fired UAW employees go to receive weekly paychecks while… you guessed it…not working)
  • Maintained $74/hour salary with benefits (Especially exorbitant when compared to the $42/hour for a comparable Japanese automaker… or even $26/hour in the private sector)
  • First rank medical coverage (covering all surgeries including cosmetic like Lasik eye surgery)

That translates to you, the car buyer, having to pay an addition $1,200 for employee benefits!

Now that's made in the good 'ol liberal U.S. of A.

The average UAW employee was making $130,000/year in salary and benefits. GM alone was shoveling out over $100 billion in retiree healthcare costs in the last 15 years.

So while most of us had to make concessions in tough economic times, the liberal unions didn't even take it into consideration… even with inevitable bankruptcy right around the corner. They know they can just count on the federal government to bail them out…And why not? The unions play a major part in getting them elected.

Now Look at the Current Administration…

Look at the promises they've made… the handouts they've either already given or guaranteed will come – Obama phones, Obama cars, Obamacare…

They're identical to the promises and the handouts in Detroit over the last 50 years.

Detroit is a replica of the exact policies the current administration sees as the perfect Utopia for America.

DETROIT!

When you continue to remove the free market principles that have always made this nation great… when you continue to create an entirely dependent society…what you get is Detroit. And that's what America will look like in a very short matter of time.

Come election season, make sure you use Detroit, the liberal model for all cities, as an example of why the progressive agenda is toxic for America.

Fight as hard as you can to prevent our nation from becoming "Model America."

Your eyes on the Hill,

Obama's Approval Rating Is Falling All Over The Place



Obarfo's lower than whale shit and whale shit lies on the bottom of the ocean.

Obama's Approval Rating Is Falling All Over The Place

Brett LoGiurato Jul. 23, 2013, 8:38 AM

AP

In three separate polls, President Barack Obama's approval rating has plunged to its lowest point in at least a year, as he is set to embark on a national tour to give speeches on the economy.

In a new McClatchy-Marist poll, Obama's approval rating has sunk to its lowest point in nearly two years at 41%. A new ABC News-Washington Post poll showed his approval rating slipping below 50% for the first time since last September. And a Public Policy Polling survey set to be released later Tuesday promises his lowest numbers since his disastrous performance in the first presidential debate last October.

Both of the polls released show his approval ratings to be much higher than those of Congress, collectively. In the Real Clear Politics average of polling, Obama's approval sits at 45.7% in an average of six polls. Here's a look at how his numbers have shifted since re-election:

Real Clear Politics

In the McClatchy-Marist poll, Obama's approval rating sunk to its lowest point since September 2011 — right after a bruising fight over raising the nation's debt ceiling. That's a debate that is coming up again soon.

For Obama, the only solace in the polls is that going into the important budget debates — and amid the continuing fight over immigration reform — Obama's approval rating sits much higher than that of Congressional Republicans. In the McClatchy-Marist poll, their approval rating sits at a dreadful 22%. And in the WaPo-ABC survey, many more would blame Republicans than Obama if an immigration deal doesn't get done.

Obama Administration Requires Magician To Submit A 32 Page “Disaster Plan” For His Rabbit


 


Obama Administration Requires Magician To Submit A 32 Page "Disaster Plan" For His Rabbit

Posted: 23 Jul 2013 03:50 PM PDT

Rabbit - Photo by Hironori AkutagawaCentral planning in this country is getting completely and totally out of control.  These days, you can hardly do anything without running into a suffocating web of red tape.  For example, a small-time magician from Missouri that does magic shows for kids was absolutely horrified when he learned that the Obama administration is requiring him to submit a 32 page "disaster plan" for the rabbit that he uses in his shows.  Yes, this is actually true.  His name is Marty Hahne, and he thought that it was bad enough when the U.S. Department of Agriculture busted him for not having a "license" for his rabbit.  He went out and acquired the proper "license" for his rabbit, but he never dreamed that eventually he would also have to submit a 32 page "disaster plan" for the same rabbit.

This is a guy that does not make a lot of money.  He mostly does shows for kids at schools and at libraries

Marty Hahne, or Marty the Magician as he is known to school groups around Springfield, Mo., where he makes a living making his rabbit, Casey, magically appear in a variety of places (birthday gift, miniature library, cookie jar), is headlining a ventriloquists' convention in Cincinnati this week.

You would think that the federal government would have much better things to do than to shake down a small-time magician with one rabbit.  Unfortunately, the control freaks that run things are not about to let anyone off the hook…

The U.S. Department of Agriculture requires the rabbit to be licensed, which is weird enough, but where things enter the rabbit warren of the truly bizarre is a new USDA rule seven years in the making.

Marty must have a rabbit disaster "plan" in place by July 29, 2013, in case of calamity — "flooding," "earthquake," "landslide/mudslide/avalanche," "wildfire," "intentional attack," to name a few examples.

"My country is broke," Mr. Hahne says. "We are out of money, and now the government is spending time, and money, worrying about an emergency plan for a bunny rabbit."

Fortunately, a woman named Kim Morgan that specializes in writing emergency plans for federal agencies heard about what Mr. Hahne was going through and offered to draft the 32 page disaster plan for free.

But of course this is just one example of a much larger phenomenon.  We are a country that literally has millions of laws, rules and regulations and that is drowning underneath an ocean of red tape.

And it gets worse with each passing year.  For example, just check out what one recent CNN article had to say about the "privacy nightmare" that the new federal Obamacare database is going to create…

When shoppers apply for health insurance through the forthcoming state-based Obamacare exchanges, the online system will verify each applicant's information by pulling in data from more than half a dozen federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the Peace Corps. It will know who you are, how much money you make, and whether or not you're in the United States legally.

The prospect of one online system having access to so much personal information is making some watchdogs nervous. In a USA Today op-ed decrying the system as a "privacy nightmare," researchers Stephen Parente and Paul Howard penned these scary words: "This hub will achieve what has, until now, only appeared in pulp thrillers: a central database linking critical state and federal data on every U.S. citizen for real-time access."

Can you imagine how much of a bureaucratic nightmare that is going to be?  Government bureaucrats are going to have access to all of our health information, and they will instantly know where we have failed to comply with the countless new rules and regulations that are being implemented as a part of Obamacare.

It is going to be an absolutely gigantic ball of red tape.  It will be a bureaucratic paradise.

So what can we do about all of this?

Individually, not a whole lot.  But there are some states that are starting to push back against the federal government.

For example, the following are some excerpts from a recent email that someone sent to me about what is going on in Oklahoma…

Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9 an amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the state capitol. The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian values…! HB 1330

Guess what………. Oklahoma did it anyway.

Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen. They all scattered. HB 1804. This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU, they said it would be a mistake.

Guess what………. Oklahoma did it anyway.

The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. I'm sure that was a setback for the criminals. The Liberals didn't like it — But….

Guess what………… Oklahoma did it anyway.

Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers' license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.

By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either.

Guess what…who cares… Oklahoma is doing it anyway.

The United States is not supposed to be a centrally-planned society where control freak bureaucrats watch, track, monitor and control virtually everything that we do.

We are supposed to be a society that maximizes privacy, freedom and liberty.

Sadly, at this point we are becoming more like centrally-planned societies such as China every single day.  And if you want an idea of what life in a society that has a very high degree of central planning is like, just check out this video of a subway station during morning rush hour in Beijing…

A photo of the overcrowding in the subway station in the video above was recently posted on Twitter

Subway Station In Beijing

Is that how we want to live?

To the central planners, we are all essentially nameless, faceless cattle that need to be herded in the right direction.

And the central planners always believe that they know better than us.  They believe that we cannot be trusted with freedom and liberty because we cannot handle it.

Unfortunately, central planners usually end up making a giant mess of things. And right now they are making a huge mess of the United States. If we don't stop them, they will continue to wreck our once great nation.

So what do you think about all of this?  Please feel free to share your opinion by posting a comment below…

Role Reversal: How the US Became the USSR

"In other words, Snowden did what Americans are supposed to do --disclose government crimes against the Constitution and against citizens. Without a free press there is nothing but the government's lies. In order to protect its lies from exposure, Washington intends to exterminate all truth tellers."

July 23, 2013
Role Reversal: How the US Became the USSR
Paul Craig Roberts

I spent the summer of 1961 behind the Iron Curtain. I was part of the US-USSR student exchange program. It was the second year of the program that operated under auspices of the US Department of State. Our return to the West via train through East Germany was interrupted by the construction of the Berlin Wall. We were sent back to Poland. The East German rail tracks were occupied with Soviet troop and tank trains as the Red Army concentrated in East Germany to face down any Western interference.

Fortunately, in those days there were no neoconservatives. Washington had not grown the hubris it so well displays in the 21st century. The wall was built and war was avoided. The wall backfired on the Soviets. Both JFK and Ronald Reagan used it to good propaganda effect.

In those days America stood for freedom, and the Soviet Union for oppression. Much of this impression was created by Western propaganda, but there was some semblance to the truth in the image. The communists had a Julian Assange and an Edward Snowden of their own. His name was Cardinal Jozef Mindszenty, the leader of the Hungarian Catholic Church.

Mindszenty opposed tyranny. For his efforts he was imprisoned by the Nazis. Communists also regarded him as an undesirable, and he was tortured and given a life sentence in 1949.

Freed by the short-lived Hungarian Revolution in 1956, Mindszenty reached the American Embassy in Budapest and was granted political asylum by Washington. However, the communists would not give him the free passage that asylum presumes, and Mindszenty lived in the US Embassy for 15 years, 79% of his remaining life.

In the 21st century roles have reversed. Today it is Washington that is enamored of tyranny. On Washington's orders, the UK will not permit Julian Assange free passage to Ecuador, where he has been granted asylum. Like Cardinal Mindszenty, Assange is stuck in the Ecuadoran Embassy in London.

Washington will not permit its European vassal states to allow overflights of airliners carrying Edward Snowden to any of the countries that have offered Snowden asylum. Snowden is stuck in the Moscow airport.

In Washington politicians of both parties demand that Snowden be captured and executed. Politicians demand that Russia be punished for not violating international law, seizing Snowden, and turning him over to Washington to be tortured and executed, despite the fact that Washington has no extradition treaty with Russia.

Snowden did United States citizens a great service. He told us that despite constitutional prohibition, Washington had implemented a universal spy system intercepting every communication of every American and much of the rest of the world. Special facilities are built in which to store these communications.

In other words, Snowden did what Americans are supposed to do --disclose government crimes against the Constitution and against citizens. Without a free press there is nothing but the government's lies. In order to protect its lies from exposure, Washington intends to exterminate all truth tellers.

The Obama Regime is the most oppressive regime ever in its prosecution of protected whistleblowers. Whistleblowers are protected by law, but the Obama Regime insists that whistleblowers are not really whistleblowers. Instead, the Obama Regime defines whistleblowers as spies, traitors, and foreign agents. Congress, the media, and the faux judiciary echo the executive branch propaganda that whistleblowers are a threat to America. It is not the government that is violating and raping the US Constitution that is a threat. It is the whistleblowers who inform us of the rape who are the threat.

The Obama Regime has destroyed press freedom. A lackey federal appeals court has ruled that NY Times reporter James Risen must testify in the trial of a CIA officer charged with providing Risen with information about CIA plots against Iran. The ruling of this fascist court destroys confidentiality and is intended to end all leaks of the government's crimes to media.

What Americans have learned in the 21st century is that the US government lies about everything and breaks every law. Without whistleblowers, Americans will remain in the dark as "their" government enserfs them, destroying every liberty, and impoverishes them with endless wars for Washington's and Wall Street's hegemony.

Snowden harmed no one except the liars and traitors in the US government. Contrast Washington's animosity against Snowden with the pardon that Bush gave to Dick Cheney aide, Libby, who took the fall for his boss for blowing the cover, a felony, on a covert CIA operative, the spouse of a former government official who exposed the Bush/Cheney/neocon lies about Iraqi weapons of mass destruction.

Whatever serves the tiny clique that rules america is legal; whatever exposes the criminals is illegal.

That's all there is to it.

Bono: Only Capitalism Can End Poverty [Video]

Bono: Only Capitalism Can End Poverty [Video]

You probably figure that like most prominent artists and entertainment celebrities, U2 frontman Bono would be a typical left-liberal.

But you'd be wrong.

The Values & Capitalism blog of the American Enterprise Institute observes that "For a rock star whose travels to developing nations and advocacy of foreign aid are well known, this focus on commerce has surprised many observers­and apparently the man himself."

In a recent speech at Georgetown University's Global Social Enterprise Event, Bono admitted that even he himself finds it hard to accept that he has become a rock star who preaches capitalism. "Wow; sometimes I hear myself and I just can't believe it," he said.

Bono is well known for leading charitable organizations and initiatives that are fighting poverty and disease in Africa. He also may or may not be the world's wealthiest musician as a result of his investment in the Facebook IPO.

At the Georgetown speech, Bono made the following statements:

"Aid is just a stop-gap. Commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty than aid.
"In dealing with poverty here and around the world, welfare and foreign aid are a Band-Aid. Free enterprise is a cure.
"Entrepreneurship is the most sure way of development."

In a speech in Dublin in October, Bono express similar sentiments according to Forbes.

"Job creators and innovators are just the key, and aid is just a bridge … We see it as startup money, investment in new countries. A humbling thing was to learn the role of commerce."

The clip below contains a portion of Bono's Georgetown University remarks:

Dashcam footage of America's Moon landing

by Dr. Eowyn

Last Monday, July 22, was the 44th anniversary of America's Apollo 11 mission's historic landing on the Moon.

Here's dashcam footage from the lunar rover.

I don't know why Bloomberg reporter Adam Johnson keeps referring to Apollo 16, instead of Apollo 11. Apollo 16 was the 10th manned mission in the U. S. Apollo space program; the 5th and penultimate to land on the Moon; and the first to land in the lunar highlands.

Wiki says Apollo 11's  Lunar Module LM-5 weighed 33,278 lb.

How sad that Obama the POS has drastically cut the budget of NASA. From Wiki:

NASA's budget has generally been approximately 1% of the federal budget from the early 1970s on, but briefly peaked to approximately 3.3% in 1966 during the Apollo program. Recent public perception of the NASA budget has been shown to be significantly different from reality; a 1997 poll indicated that Americans responded on average that 20% of the federal budget went to NASA.

The percentage of federal budget that NASA has been allocated has been steadily dropping since the Apollo program and as of 2012 the NASA budget is estimated to be 0.48% of the federal budget. In a March 2012 meeting of the United States Senate Science Committee, Neil deGrasse Tyson testified that "Right now, NASA's annual budget is half a penny on your tax dollar. For twice that—a penny on a dollar—we can transform the country from a sullen, dispirited nation, weary of economic struggle, to one where it has reclaimed its 20th century birthright to dream of tomorrow." Inspired by Tyson's advocacy and remarks, the Penny4NASA nonprofit was founded in 2012 by John Zeller and advocates the doubling of NASA's budget to one percent of the Federal Budget, or one "penny on the dollar."

Less money for NASA, whose missions direct our eyes to the heavens, but more money for even more people on food stamps.

Way to go, Obama. You're well on your destructive path to turn this once-great country into a Third World dump.
