Pro-Life or Pro-Choice

I'm guessing this may clear out a few social media friends on both sides of the argument.  First and foremost, I truly believe the current American political system in place doesn't give two hoots about the life of any citizen, much less the preborn.  The fact that abortion has been a hot button issue for every election cycle for years, tells me the politicians aren't going to change anything, except to further divide the people.  The timing of this argument raised my curiosity though, as it's not yet the campaign cycle. 

Abortion has been legal for nearly 50 years.  Nobody is going to stop having sex because some politician does some posturing or some "old lady" blogs about it!  I am not for abortion, but I'm not anti-choice.  See how crazy the wording on this subject can get?  I believe the choice about pregnancy should be made before the chance for conception.  If you don't choose to be pregnant, don't do what it takes to get that way!  I don't believe in America's health care system at all.  I believe pharmaceuticals are sorcery and abortion is part of America's health care system.  People from both sides of the political aisle find something to disagree with me on this subject.  There are plenty of religious conservatives who will "boycott" at the drop of a hat, until it comes to health care.  If abortion is part of health care, why aren't these religious conservatives boycotting and trusting the G-d of the Bible for their health.  That's what I'm doing, and I get plenty of grief from that group for my decision, but I digress.  Not to leave out the progressive liberals, who seem to want free health care.  It was actually the pro-life nitpicking and the pro-choice hate that motivated me to truly reconsider my perspective.

Now, hang on, because I've begun to look at this from an eternal perspective.  I made a social media post on the subject of abortion, and the thread took on a life of its own.  As I read the comments, and the hate that was spewed and the ridiculous accusations and individual cases of victimization, I was appalled.  People get so ugly when they feel strongly about this issue, and once the ugly starts, the tone overrides the content of the statement.  As the thread devolved, the strangest thing came to mind, though, and that's what I'm blogging about today.

First, I thought of Abraham.  Ishmael was certainly not a part in the perfect plan.  All things considered with Islam, just where would this world be right now, if Ishmael had not been born? 

Second, I thought of Pharaoh and Herod, while Nebuchadnezzar brushed the edges of that thought.  Pharaoh and Herod had no problem declaring death sentences for babies.  Nebuchadnezzar was king of Babylon and he designed some pretty harsh punishments for those who were not of Babylon.  Considering these three men were all about power and control with little consideration for life that didn't bow down to their power and control.  Both sides of the argument lost me there, as American politics is all about power and control.  I'm just passing through this world.

Scripture speaks of children being sacrificed to Molech.  Molech was a king who received infant sacrifice.  Molech has always seemed to me to be a metaphor for self-serving convenience, and that's where my thoughts really began to scramble.  In that thread, I read comments made by young women looking forward to the deaths of "older people."  When I thought about what some parents and grandparents sacrificed for people this age, I realized there is a serious issue of self-centeredness, and perhaps as Paul mentioned seared conscience or reprobate minds.  We older generations didn't do a very good job!

We truly are living in the last days.  If these people can look at other people and make statements of waiting for them to die, no wonder they want to maintain the right to kill someone they haven't seen.  I couldn't imagine being a helpless baby at their mercy . . . I can't realistically offer to raise and care for all the unwanted babies.  I wish I could, but I can't.

Those thoughts were troubling.  I know, several G-d fearing people think an unplanned pregnancy should "end" in adoption.  We all know that's not going to happen very often and when it does, the government is right in the middle of that, also.  In a perfect world, perhaps adoption would be chosen every time, but in a perfect world, there'd be no unplanned pregnancy.

Realizing how much I value choice and how many people just really want to make decisions for other people, I've realized I don't want to make decisions for other adults and I don't want them making decisions for me.  I also realized in some of those pro-choice comments, I wouldn't want them to have a baby!  Still, though, it's not my decision.  The rhetoric and brainwashing is intense.  Calling a developing human a zygote or embryo, or even fetus; somehow removes the "human" factor for some individuals.  Conscience cannot be legislated!  I've read about the cases of rape and incest, but anyone with Google can find the actual abortion statistics on that and realize it's a very, very small percentage of the abortions that are performed.

I had two other thoughts that seem oddly comforting.  Our Heavenly Father, whom many do not serve or honor promised Abraham heirs too numerous to count.  In describing the number, He compared them to the stars and sand . . . We've watched the decline of morals and the rebellion against our Creator gain momentum.  Every aborted child will not be raised by self-serving hedonists or religious hypocrites.  I know hearts can change.  I'm certainly not the person I was in my twenties, and for that I'm terribly thankful.  Would I ever counsel someone to have an abortion?  No!  But by that same token, I think it's much better for those babies to be amidst the white robed throngs than raised by someone that doesn't want them and doesn't care about the value of their soul.
That in blessing I will bless thee, and in multiplying I will multiply thy seed as the stars of the heaven, and as the sand which is upon the sea shore; and thy seed shall possess the gate of his enemies; Torah of Holy Scripture

Vaccines, the Baser Line of Division

The strong arm of American health care is about to draw the line in the sand on the division over the vaccination issue.  Most of the arguments in this country fall along party lines, but not this one!  I've observed comments and read articles from both sides of the aisle that are pro-vaccine.  Many of the anti-vax are libertarian or a-political, and as for the term many, we are a minority.  We are a minority in which it's politically correct to discriminate against and speak condescension.

There is an interesting article that introduced a great new label for us, and presented a very well written observation.  Why "Anti-Vaxxers" are really "Ex-Vaxxers".  Most of us were not raised to be anti-vax and most of us continued our pro-vax programming into our own parenting years, until . . . a light came on.  For some, it was a vaccine injury, others were blessed to simply read the insert and say, "not my child."  Others have made the decision based upon the toxins used in vaccines and the reported fetal tissue from abortions.

Abortions and vaccines are part of mainstream health care and if you don't see the power of Big Pharma in this country, you either have your head in the sand or are simply living under a rock.  Even the politicians bow down and kowtow to the Big Pharma lobby.  The love of money is powerful.  I Timothy says, "the love of money is the root of all evil."  It seems a number of G-d fearing people rail against abortion and the main stand against the vaccination program is a religious exemption, so we can basically see "who" is slated to be public enemy number one!   Most of these people who are pro-life and anti-mandatory vaccines still support the health care system, however.  If asked I'm sure most pro-lifers would never go to a doctor that performs abortions, but the health care system their physicians do represent and work for includes abortion and vaccination.

Most ex-vaxxers are not opposed to vaccines being available for those who choose them, but rather oppose the possibility of legally mandating them.  Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has taken a very bold stand on this subject, yet he's never claimed to be anti-vax.  He wants genuine studies done to prove their safety and efficacy, rather than programming and propaganda.  Although I'm not onboard with the Children's Health Defense, the page contains a short video done by Mr. Kennedy.
The fact that the White House asked him to chair a committee to check into the safety of vaccines, yet now has all but ghosted Mr. Kennedy on the subject of vaccines is telling and rather ominous.

Here is an article that is over four years old.  The powers that be are aware that vaccines shed and spread the illness!   I've been involved in more than one thread on social media regarding this topic and have seen some pretty harsh character assassinations aimed at we ex-vaxxers.  More than one individual has gone on and on, accusing non-vaxxers of not caring about children or those with compromised immunity.  Saying if we cared about others, we'd get vaccinated.  My thought after reading various reports is quite simple.  Are those who choose to vaccinate themselves and their children willing to remain home and out of public places until the shedding period is over?

Mr. Kennedy is also checking into the products of Monsanto and the effect they have, not only on the environment but on the people.  Monsanto has now taken anonymous cover under the merger with Bayer.  An interesting merger of our food supply and symptom management, to be sure!

Social media contains posts claiming that vaccines contain aborted fetal tissue.  This is what I've discovered and it confirms what Bush 43 said several years ago, through his administration.  Two tissue lines from aborted fetuses are reportedly used in the development of certain vaccines.  Reportedly, the two lines are maintained to continue indefinitely.  I do not have the knowledge to confirm or deny that, but I have included some links that address the issue.  Many individuals who are pro-life now consider this a very negative factor in the vaccine discussion.  Also according to some reports, there are cells of various unclean animals used in making some vaccines, so that is a Scriptural issue for those who choose to live by Scriptural dietary standard.  I realize the cells are not made into a meal, but they do enter the body, and there are some oral vaccines.

The following link took me to a page that seemed to be a resource for those in the health care field and pro-vax.  I've included one of the questions with the first paragraph of the answer.
A patient has expressed concern that some vaccines have been produced in fetal tissue. How can I address this concern?
The production of a few vaccines, including those for varicella, rubella, and hepatitis A, involves growing the viruses in human cell culture. Two human cell lines provide the cell cultures needed for producing vaccines; these lines were developed from two legally aborted fetuses in the 1960s. These cell lines are maintained to have an indefinite life span. No fetal tissue has been added since the cell lines were originally created . . .
The following excerpt came from an article offering the abortion history in this country.
In the late 1960s, before abortion was legalized again in the United States, concerned pastors and rabbis set up the Clergy Consultation Service on Abortion to help women find safe illegal abortions.  

According to this information, we can be sure abortions were done in this country before 1973.  Depending upon the financial status of the "patient" and the willingness of the physician they were simply labeled to be some other procedure or just "off the record," but this leaves me with a question.  If abortions were not legal until 1973, how were two fetuses aborted legally in the 60's?

Research indicates it was really improvements in sanitation that brought the decline of polio in the 50's before the vaccine.  After the vaccine was introduced, any symptoms of, or similar to polio were labeled differently, such as Guillain-Barre syndrome.  Although there are fewer cases of polio, measles, mumps, and pertussis reported, autoimmune diseases and countless syndromes have increased in this modern vaccine era.  You may argue that we simply have more ways to diagnose and more information available, which may be true, but there is one haunting fact that stands in this hotly debated issue.

I've taken note of the digital history regarding the annual flu vaccines.  Digital history is certainly not etched in stone, and often not in tangible print.  At the beginning of flu season, everyone is urged to get a flu shot, as thousands of people were spared the flu "last season," due to their shots  By the end of the flu season, the records seem to have changed and everyone is urged to get a flu shot to avoid being one of the thousands of sad statistics from the previous year . . .

Vaccine manufacturers are not liable for claims of vaccine injuries and there are over 250 patent applications for more vaccinations!  In 1986, the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act, was included in a larger health bill and passed, protecting vaccine manufacturers from lawsuits.  The recommended vaccinations in the country stood between 24-25 from 1963-1988.  That number has now more than doubled.

Since 1988, over 20,629 petitions have been filed with the NCVIA. Over that 30-year time period, 17,875 petitions have been adjudicated, with 6,551 of those determined to be compensable, while 11,324 were dismissed. Total compensation paid over the life of the program is approximately $4.1 billion.  

VAERS Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System was established in 1990.  The name doesn't lead one to believe the CDC and FDA are involved, but both are listed to "co-manage" VAERS.  The link is included in the acronym at the beginning of this paragraph, and the following is a paragraph from the website.
The primary objectives of VAERS are to:
  • Detect new, unusual, or rare vaccine adverse events;
  • Monitor increases in known adverse events;
  • Identify potential patient risk factors for particular types of adverse events;
  • Assess the safety of newly licensed vaccines;
  • Determine and address possible reporting clusters (e.g., suspected localized [temporally or geographically] or product-/batch-/lot-specific adverse event reporting);
  • Recognize persistent safe-use problems and administration errors;
  • Provide a national safety monitoring system that extends to the entire general population for response to public health emergencies, such as a large-scale pandemic influenza vaccination program.
VAERS appears to be data keeper and study desk to monitor the effects of new vaccinations in the population, which makes it sound like our children are the guinea pigs.

Although the creation of NCVIA in 1988 and VAERS in 1990 gives the illusion of protection for the people, these two agencies are in place because the vaccine manufacturers are protected from lawsuits and liability, as of 1986.

The term pharmakeia/pharmakon is a Greek term that is the root for our English word pharmacy or pharmaceutical and that Greek term is included in the Revelation of Scripture, translated "sorcery/sorcerer."  There are four verses pertaining to this subject in the Revelation.
Revelation 9:21; 18:23; 21:8; 22:15
Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.  Revelation 9:21.

Interesting Pitchman

This is not a slam against Mike Rowe.  The man is working, but I find his pitch to be an interesting paradox.  I believe he believes in his pitch, but I believe he's just the face and voice of an agenda.   Our government can't keep everyone signing up for federal student loans for college!  Then, there is also the factor that fewer and fewer people, these days, even realize the value of skilled labor.  I absolutely believe in the message that Mike Rowe is pitching, but I just cannot help but notice the fact that this man, by his own, bio gives full confession to being a good spokesperson and by the list of sponsors, is apparently quite persuasive.

To look at him, he's "the image" of a hard working man who is happy in his skilled labor career.  His site actually has a list of available jobs, as well.  His personal life doesn't really bear out his image, but more on that later.  He is working!

The following link contains a great deal of promotion, but I wanted to include the last headlined section I perused, and Mr. Rowe's closing paragraph.

How about some good advice?

In the long history of bad advice, you’d have to look pretty hard to find something dumber than Work Smart Not Hard.

So…with a little creative license (and no respect for the original), I’m pleased to present a new platitude with a different attitude. And if you’d like to help spread the word, I’ll try to talk you into buying one. Posters are $12, or as much as you want to give, and all proceeds go to the mikeroweWORKS Foundation.
- Mike Rowe
According to Wikipedia, Mr. Rowe was indeed a college boy, and every position in his resume seems to bear witness to the man really not participating in jobs that get your hands dirty . . . Unless, of course, there's a contract with a camera rolling.  Mr. Rowe reportedly lives in San Francisco, is past 55, with no wife or children mentioned.  
Again, this is not a slam against Mr. Rowe, but rather to point out the reality that he's a spokesperson for a concept that is being pushed very hard by powerful people.  In all support of Mr. Rowe, he is clearly using his talent and style to convey a message.  The man is making an honest living, promoting a "concept" that needs to be remembered.  Somebody's got to "keep things running!"  
The promotion of "keeping things running" is, in my opinion, just another part of the agenda being proposed for a society that is already so far in bondage, most don't even recognize it.  Whether this is "a conspiracy theory" or "critical thinking" is up to each of us to determine.  Here's my theory.  There are enough people with college degrees and federal student loans to make an entire office workforce of indentured servants, but these people cannot take care of the infrastructure of civilized society.  That's where the blue collar and vo-tech careers come in.  These careers that have been relegated to the back burner of "undesired careers" are necessary trades.  They are especially necessary for a nation of dependent people.   Dependent citizens will need people to take care of the infrastructure.

As our society drifts further from truth and reality, we need to keep in mind, most of what is being promoted, is for the profit of the sponsors, the welfare of the system, and a paycheck for the participants of the promotion, rather than the individual listening to the promotion.

Disrespect or Dementia ?

In this culture of polarization, perhaps I should not be so black and white and give consideration to a blurred grey area, but I simply cannot find one.  Many of Nancy Pelosi's constituents and supporters have commented "concern" about Barron Trump's attention or lack thereof through late night speeches and events.  The fact that these events have taken place past a normal bedtime for a pre-teen, then there's the boredom factor . . . for a twelve year old boy, I hardly see the commentary as insightful.  Then there is the reality that those who have suggested labels are hardly qualified to do so. 

On the other hand, Nancy is 78 years old and should by now, know what appropriate behavior is, unless she's experienced some sort of health event or is simply declining, at this point. 

At first in watching her behavior and how much "stuff" was sitting in front of her, as opposed to VP Pence, I thought she was just poised aggressively to be disagreeable, but I'm not so sure, now.  Does this make you wonder if she is like this behind the closed doors of the House with anyone and everyone who dares have a different perspective?  In looking back through some of the SOTU addresses in her previous time of Speaker of the House, she was of course, friendly to President Obama. 

A few years earlier, however; she appeared to be poised in dealing with President Bush, also.  We know she didn't agree with him politically, but she at least displayed the appropriate pomp and circumstance for the event and his position.

Somewhere in a previous comment or video, I'd suggested that perhaps this open hostility was just part of Washington theatre, but now I have to wonder.  

I'm no doctor, but in looking back over the photos, Nancy Pelosi's behavior through the 2019 State of the Union Address reminded me of my old days working in the Nursing Home.  I realize many older folks have trouble and can even become combative after sundown.  Nancy will be 79 next month.  Perhaps she can simply no longer manage her emotions and behavior in some circumstances . . .

She actually stated that the President was not invited to the House to give the SOTU Address through the government shut down.  I'm not sure who should be credited for the democrat women to be wearing white, but Nancy certainly showed her support for the "cause."  The iconic image of her sarcastic applause aimed at the president is clearly one for the history books.  There was a time when citizens served in politics for a time, then returned to their own home and livelihood to age gracefully at home.  It may already be too late to avoid aging disgracefully in office.  Nancy seems to be wielding a great deal more power than previous Speakers of the House, while her behavior seems quite unfitting for that of a public servant. 

CNN reported a 76% approval rating for the President's SOTU Address.  Perhaps the Speaker of the House is struggling to actually relate to or represent the interests of the majority of Americans.

Fearfully Polarized and Potential Redefinition

To be honest, I'm not on board with the wall.  I'm not against it, fully, I'm just aware that a wall could not only keep intruders out, but could also keep Americans contained.  Then there is the fact that anyone who disregards the already established laws will find a way over, under, or around a wall!

I was born in the late 50's, and without divulging all the family dysfunction, I had a foretaste of this "freedom in exchange for safety" mentality long before it became fashionable in America.  I grew up listening to how scary the world was and since I was 5 when President Kennedy was assassinated, it seemed believable . . . for a time, but not for long.  Once I got to school and found out other kids could leave their own backyard and return home safely and show up for school the next day, I began to question the paranoia.  I had the sense or fear to not question it aloud, but the disregard of fear took root and has blossomed into courage through the years.  Now, at 60, I read headlines and realize our "public servants" are not serving "we the people" and the media is simply using emotional manipulation to keep Americans at odds with each other and all stirred up.

The government shutdown was over the lack of funding for "the wall."  Then our Representatives spent a week working on a bill they knew would not pass to resolve the issue!  Considering the tax dollars that pay the House of Representatives, shouldn't they spend their time more productively?  In crunching a few numbers, it would seem they cost us nearly 3M dollars in salaries, drafting a bill they knew would die.  A week on a bill they know won't pass seems to be a case of "time NOT well spent!"  How is that serving the people who elected them?  Why is this acceptable?  Now, there is talk about declaring a "National Emergency."  I have a few words of my own regarding "National Emergency."

Absolutely Ridiculous

This blog has been idle for awhile now.  Being a-political in such a politically divisive climate, silence seemed the best plan for a time.  I've been working on other writing projects, but I just took a break from politics.  G.W. was just beginning his second term when I began this blog.  I didn't agree with a number of his decisions, but I felt the freedom to openly write my perspective, even when I disagreed.

The Obama administration really slowed down my blogging, as I would have obviously lost my a-political objective.  I was doing radio through some of his administration and the pressure against free speech was gaining strength.  I stayed busy writing in other areas, doing my best to keep a few things actually in print, as digital history can be changed with the click of a mouse.  I knew 2012 was the last election as we'd known them, and 2016 proved to be an election like none we'd seen before.

I didn't participate in the actual election, and as is repeated ad nauseam, "if you don't vote, you can't complain."  Fair enough, I'm not really even going to talk about the current administration, but I've got plenty say about our digital media.  As a writer, I believe genuine news articles should not read like an article from the Enquirer.  There is entirely too much bias as well as too many extraneous, irrelevant details or comparisons; while pertinent information seems often omitted.  Most news articles seem to focus on "the potential wedge," then proceed to build an article around it.     

The perfect example to remain true to my a-political perspective are the recent articles of the Christmas decorations in the White House.  Melania receives very poor treatment from some of the media.  I'm guessing there are some female executives in the newsroom that are just green with envy.  If she was the other party, she'd be the media's darling and on the front of every magazine.  Melania Trump is a beautiful woman, clearly with her own style, which she wears well.  So why are the headlines usually so negative and the magazines so silent?  I can't speak for anyone else, but it really does come across as jealousy.

I didn't vote for her husband . . . I didn't vote against him, either.  I also don't celebrate "Christmas," but what in the world?  Was it just a slow news day or is the media really as negatively programmed as it would seem?  The following headline was on my Yahoo news page, and according to Google, a couple of other news sites picked up the story and ran it as well.  To actually write an article about negative social media comments while providing quote after quote, I think exceeds the gossip mag/rags.  A "news article" with the focus being: twitter comments!

Melania Trump slammed for showing off 'historically ludicrous' Christmas decor while children are tear-gassed at border: 'What a great way to start the holiday season'

Why the big hoop-ti-la over Melania decorating the White House for Christmas?  Then to bring together the issue at the border with Christmas decorating seems like a real stretch.  America is a war-mongering nation!  Historically speaking, America has been at peace less than 20 years since it's founding, yet the White House has been decorated and Washington DC continues to hold gala events through the years, regardless of military action.  Nobody faulted Lady Bird for decorating for Christmas while the men of my generation were dying in Viet Nam!  The Johnson girls and the Nixon girls all had beautiful weddings through their father's presidencies which also included years of war. Actually, Julie Nixon's wedding took place between his election and his inauguration, but her sister's wedding took place in the Rose Garden.

This disrespect toward Melania is just wrong, and her response in just rising above it, makes her look that much better.  Nobody faulted Nancy Reagan for inviting Jean Dixon to the White House or for decorating for Christmas while her husband did everything he could to avoid the Middle East.  And while we're at it . . . we've been in Iraq and Afghanistan since just after the turn of this century, but the media didn't attack the Obamas for holiday decorating and the media was very supportive of the rainbow lighting on the White House . . . while we were at war with Isis.  I realize there were some negative remarks made about Michelle Obama, but she has been generally treated well by media and was on more than one magazine cover. 

I can't remember a time when America was so disrespectful toward a First Lady.

I feel badly that there are children caught in this battle of the border, but that is not Melania's fault. That fault lies at the feet of their parents.  If you're going to do something illegal, don't bring your children and don't use them as a human shield.  How hard is that?  If I was going to commit some sort of felony, I wouldn't have my child in the get-away car.  If someone is "brave enough" to break our immigration laws, then why not use that courage to change their own country?  To disregard our border is a choice these people, reportedly, have much time to consider and reconsider.  Forcing one's way into a country is not called seeking asylum or immigration, it's called:  invasion.

The Handwriting On the Wall

Regardless of how this Senate hearing for the Supreme Court nominee turns out, we the people are losing . . .

If Dr. Ford's testimony causes Judge Kavanaugh to lose the appointment, it will be official that we, as citizens, are no longer presumed innocent until proven guilty.  If Judge Kavanaugh does receive the appointment to the SCOTUS, Dr. Ford has set us back 60 years in regard to reporting sex crimes.  Not to mention how much trafficking will likely be ignored, now . . .  The fact that our government now amounts to little more than a political circus is sad.  This entire mess was orchestrated to cause emotions to soar, at this late hour.  American politics is now adrenaline driven.

We may also be looking at the end of the statute of limitation . . . especially for unprovable allegations that are not prosecuted.  Even if the allegations are true, it's been far too many years to prosecute, yet a person's reputation, career, and ultimately their life can be ruined.  The court of public opinion can be merciless.  I understand the concept of repressed memories, but she claims to have spoken of the matter back in 2012. 

As for the FBI investigation.  Everyone knows this is a red herring, at best.  This is the same agency that didn't bother to investigate a high school dropout making threats, who actually followed through on those threats at Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida.  This is nothing more than a stall tactic or flare for a bit more drama.  Now that I've read the responses to the report, it's clear that the division still stands.  For those who oppose Judge Kavanaugh, the investigation was not thorough enough and it's satisfactory for those who were already set to confirm him.  There are three Senators (undecided) who are enjoying their 15 minutes of absolute power . . .

Isn't it interesting that Judge Kavanaugh's integrity is in question based upon a single accusation from several years ago.  There have been no complaints throughout his career.  This is not a criminal matter, but he stands to lose every thing, if there is a problem.  Let's also consider the integrity of the people judging his integrity.  I believe these senate hearings are the very definition of paradox.

There's no way for America to come out of this, because either way, we the people are at serious odds over this situation.  Let's face it, nearly everyone had their mind made up as soon as the news broke, based purely on political affiliation.  We the people didn't need an advise and consent hearing.  Besides, I think the decision has already been made.  I do have to wonder, though, what else has been going into place while this has mesmerized the nation.

America, we're slipping and slipping badly.  The workings of our government should not be comparable to a season finale of Dallas or a Jerry Springer show.
