Why Leftists Are Far Likelier to Use Political Violence Than Conservatives
According to P.H. Vigor’s A Guide To Marxism, since religion cannot deliver any sense of morality, it is up to humanism to create standards. But, as Virgor notes-
Moreover, in any discussion involving ethics or morality, the fundamental point for a Marxist is that there is no such thing as an absolute Right and Wrong. Right and Wrong are relative for a Marxist: a thing which is wrong at one time, and in one set of circumstances, will be right in another…It is therefore simply not possible to settle an argument with them by reference to ethical principles—by saying, for instance, that the consequence of a particular policy would be murder, and you cannot commit murder. From a Marxist standpoint, you can—in certain circumstances
The point here cannot be made too vigorously. There is no moral center found in socialism, Marxism, anarchism, or communism, as we discover in the Bible’s Ten Commandments. There is therefore no such thing as absolute wrong or right action to a true leftist. So,where resistance to Marxism is encountered, a sincere leftist always has the option of picking up a weapon to further his “liberalism.” In fact, virtually every Marxist revolution has involved murderous attacks to gain power.. And this is why leftists will always be infinitely more dangerous than Conservatives. Link to full story.
Kentucky lawmaker wants drug tests for welfare recipients
FRANKFORT — A state lawmaker wants random drug testing of adult Kentuckians who receive food stamps, Medicaid or other state assistance. Those who fail the test would lose their benefits under House Bill 208, filed by Rep. Lonnie Napier, R-Lancaster. Napier’s proposal has won the backing of powerful House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, but critics say it would stigmatize welfare recipients and possibly harm their innocent children. “I’m not a hard-hearted guy,” said Napier. “I believe there is a need for public assistance for those who need it, but I understand some are using these funds to buy drugs.” Link to full story.
Cory Bernardi- Hypocrisy, thy colour is Brown.
Bob Brown’s credibility should be considered as dirty as the brown coal he condemns as destroying the planet. For too long his rhetoric, his headline grabbing claims and his extreme ideology have gone unexamined by much of the mainstream media. Just a few weeks ago, immediately after the Christmas Island boat wreck which claimed more than 48 lives, Brown called for the resignation of a newspaper columnist who made the obvious conclusion that Government policy had lured people to undertake the risky behaviour that ultimately cost them their lives.

Gay couple both win £1,800 damages from Christian hotel owners
Christian hotel owners who refused a gay couple a double room were today ordered to pay them compensation after a judge ruled they acted unlawfully.

Judge Andrew Rutherford made the ruling in a written judgment at Bristol County Court as he awarded the couple £1,800 each in damages. Mr Hall and Mr Preddy, from Bristol, were seeking up to £5,000 damages claiming sexual orientation discrimination under the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Link to full story.
Next Safety Nanny: “Ejection Mitigation”
So much for being thrown clear: the NHTSA has mandated that all new vehicles be equipped with “ejection mitigation” technology. Wait: isn’t that what seatbelts are for? Apparently not. For the benefit of the few dwindling throwbacks who still won’t buckle up, new cars will now have to be stuffed with even more and/or bigger side airbags, effectively preventing evolution from doing its job while adding yet another layer of blimpiness to modern cars. The new rule will go into effect near the end of 2013. Via Autoblog. Link to full story.
Christie: I was not criticizing Palin
(CNN) – Republican New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie insisted Sunday that he was not criticizing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin when he told The New York Times that she “rightfully has been criticized” for consistently following a script. “It wasn’t a criticism of her. It was an observation,” Christie said on “Fox News Sunday.” “If you avoid those unscripted moments, I don’t think the American people will trust their instincts about whether you would make a good president or not.” Link to full story.
