In Support of the Duck Commander

I have personal disdain for LGBT people's (sodomites) lifestyle decisions. I realize that by saying that I'm making common cause with Phil Robertson, the Duck Commander. It's not hate speech to say that you think that somebody makes the wrong choices. Sodomy is wrong. Those choices are not hatred of a person or a group of people. It's a value statement based on faith and an understanding of the human condition. The same Bill of Rights that should protect Robertson also protects the sodomites. They need to give that some thought.

The sodomites have decided not to watch Duck Dynasty (not that they watched it in the first place) and the A & E Network decided to eliminate Phil Robertson from their programing. I doubt that Phil will care so long as the ducks keep flying. As for me, I've decided to opt out from A & E, not that A & E will care so long as others keep watching their programming. 
Phil said, "Everything becomes blurred on what's right and what's wrong. Sin becomes fine. Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there." Then he paraphrased Paul’s letter to the Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers -- they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”
That comment went over about as well as a Chick-fil-A sandwich at a gay pride parade. I don't think that what Phil Robertson said was vile or even improper. What's not to love about Phil.?

In another move that shocked the progressive community to its core, the 'Duck Dynasty' patriarch snubbed Barbara Walters 'Most Fascinating People of 2013' taping to go duck hunting. (take that Barbara)

As this blog's readers already know, the A & E Network fired Phil for what he said regarding his beliefs in an interview with GQ Magazine. And while we all know that sodomites run the networks, this is just another reason to carefully screen out what we watch on TV to now include A & E.

ObamaNation: Cause and Effect

Cause: Operation Fast and Furious, ACORN Scandal, The Benghazi Scandal, Syrian Red Lines, The IRS Scandal, ObamaCare Lies, EPA Scandal, 17 trillion in debt, NSA Scandal, etc.

Effect: Obama is ending his fifth year in office with the lowest approval ratings at this point in the presidency since President Richard Nixon, according to a new Washington Post/ABC poll released yesterday. 
Obama's approval rating in the poll stands at 39%. By comparison, President George W. Bush had a 47% approval rating at the end of the fifth year of his presidency. And all other Post-World War II presidents had approval ratings above 50% — with the exception of Nixon, who, amid the Watergate scandal, had a dreadful 29% approval rating.

New Strategy:

Hide the ball more effectively.

The latest slap at this Administration's lack of transparency comes from a Federal Judge appointed by Bill Clinton, who scolded the Obama administration for its secretive ways and ordered officials to turn over a bland-sounding foreign policy document. 

Chastising what she called "the government’s unwarranted expansion of the presidential communications privilege at the expense of the public’s interest in disclosure," U.S. District Judge Ellen Seal Huvelle ruled the Presidential Policy Directive on Global Development is not exempt from the Freedom of Information Act or FOIA.

Judge Huvelle's 20-page decision took a shot at the Obama administration's penchant for secrecy. 

"The government appears to adopt the cavalier attitude that the President should be permitted to convey orders throughout the Executive Branch without public oversight, to engage in what is in effect governance by 'secret law,'" Huvelle wrote.
The Center for Effective Government, formerly known as OMB Watch, filed a FOIA request in 2011 for the document. It is not classified, and has been widely distributed within executive agencies. The Obama administration nonetheless sought to keep the document to itself, claiming an executive communication privilege under FOIA.
This is an important case; as Huvelle noted, it's the first time an administration sought to apply the executive communication privilege to an executive directive. The administration's legal posture, Huvelle declared at various time, was "limitless" and "unbounded."
