The “Moral Imperitive” of taking in Syrian refugees.

Both Kissinger and Albright have urged Americans to take in more “refugees”

They do this by appealing to our moral sense; “it is the right thing to do, therefore we should do it”.

Since morals are universal, it follows that they apply in Israel too. Therefore, Israel should take in more refugees too.

I am not aware of Israel taking any of the “refugees” currently invading Europe.

I look forward to Kissinger and Albright urging Israel to do the same.

As an American, it makes sense that Kissinger’s and Albright’s experiment happen there. We can view the success of the endeavor remotely.
The “tolerance” of both sides will be on full display and we can judge the motives of the refugees; if the ‘tolerant refugees’ can integrate into Israel then we can safely assume they can integrate into America.

Two generations should be a good length of time for this judgement.

Calico Citty RIP

God granted me about fifteen years with my beloved Calico Citty.

Today, July 11 2015, I was with her as she breathed her last on the front porch here in the Appalachian Mountains. It is a beautiful warm summer day, the kind of day and she loved. I told her I loved her as she died.

She rests there as I type these words.

God granted my prayer that she die in peace and without pain. I am very grateful to Him for this.

Here she is about one year ago, the view is out my window from the computer where I type this.

My beloved cat. You have taught me so much. “Of course you have to love me!” is your way of being and it is exactly how we spent your life on this earth together.

I will sing your songs and sayings to you now that you are in heaven.

“Calico Citty, you’re just so pretty.
Pretty, pretty, pretty pretty Calico(!) Citty.
Calico Citty, you’re just so pretty.
Pretty, pretty Calico Citty…..”

And…

“You’re so pretty, you must be a Calico Citty. You know the kind, the kind that’s just so Pretty!”

And…

“Hurley burley girly your my girly girly girly, your my hurly burly girly girly girly girl!”

And…

Hello scraga-muffin! scritch, scritch, scritch (as I scritched her head)

And

Here goes Calico
Here goes Calico
Calico Citty Cute! (she’s the cutey-cute)

I do not know how old you where when I adopted you in Port Richey, yet your rabies certificate states you got that in August 1, 2002. I adopted her from the New Port Richey SPCA on Congress St. http://spcasuncoast.org/ Her rabies vaccination was given back in August 1 2002, so I know she is at least 13 years old. The shelter named her Kali, but I did not like that name so I renamed her Calico Citty (Cali for short).

My beloved Calico Citty. I love you. I will see you in heaven.

Thank you God for the gift that is her.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you God for your myriad blessings.
Please continue to restore our beloved country to its covenant relationship with You.
Thank you for your chastening and your strength of character that demands righteousness and truth.
Thank you for exposing the lies of our elected ‘leaders’ and beginning to point the way to the restoration.
Thank you for the courage of your saints.
Thank you for protecting us as this storm swirls about.

Thank you for our peaceful home-life and the everyday blessings and smiles you bring our way.

Amen.

America The Beautiful

A Glorious and Blessed Fourth to my fellow patriots.

D-Day 2014

Thank you, men.

Opaltone is not the name, but I am getting closer!

There is a color scheme that I have always liked that I do not know the name for. However, it can be viewed here:

Opaltone

http://colorschemedesigner.com/ At the site, select [Color Space]->[Opaltone Colors] from the menu.

The muted blend of colors that appear no matter what which pallette is chosen (mono, compliment, triad, tetrad, analogic, highlighted analogic) is what something I have
always found appealing.

Looking at the graph in the lower left panel, I am noticing that the radius of the dots from the center is consistent. Perhaps that is the property that defines the color scheme.

I am not there yet! but I am closer!

It Was Probably a Thesis That Was Due in the Morning

McConnell, McCain on the McAshHeapOfHistory

Great point from the Tea Party Patriots:

One thing the establishment has long misunderstood about the Tea Party is we don’t want show votes that may or may not matter in a year, two years, or the next election. That Beltway strategy was supposed to win Republicans the Presidency and the Senate in 2012; it is now on the ash heap of history. The American people want strong, decisive action that will actually make a difference. Show votes are great for politicians; actual defunding is great for the rest of us. –
