      GospelMT 2:13-18

      When the magi had departed, behold,
      the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said,
      β€œRise, take the child and his mother, flee to Egypt,
      and stay there until I tell you.
      Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.”
      Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night
      and departed for Egypt.
      He stayed there until the death of Herod,
      that what the Lord had said through the prophet might be fulfilled,
      Out of Egypt I called my son.

      When Herod realized that he had been deceived by the magi,
      he became furious.
      He ordered the massacre of all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity
      two years old and under,
      in accordance with the time he had ascertained from the magi.
      Then was fulfilled what had been said through Jeremiah the prophet:

      A voice was heard in Ramah,
      sobbing and loud lamentation;
      Rachel weeping for her children,
      and she would not be consoled,
      since they were no more.

        “Rachel weeping for her children…” has always struck me.

        BTW, my “eye-opener” to the prolife viewpoint (I went to a UC, after all, and knew NOTHING about it) was a book entitled Rachel Weeping: The Case Against Abortion. Very good book; it turned my thinking around, 180 degrees:

        We had a group of Amish people do the roof on our tractor barn. They did a great job so Dh asked if they would stain/paint it. They started while we were away and when we came back we found a bunch of children doing the job,,, from like 18 down to 4. The little ones weren’t actually working.. but they did the job… I felt pretty awful. They were very well taken care of, they had a lunch that was an actual feast, but still.

    From a recent speech by Vladimir Putin:

    A further challenge for the national Russian identity is connected to the processes we observe outside of Russia. They include foreign policy, moral, and other aspects. We see that many Euro-Atlantic states have taken the way where they deny or reject their own roots, including their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilization.

    In these countries, the moral basis and any traditional identity are being denied – national, religious, cultural, and even gender identities are being denied or relativised. There, politics treats a family with many children as juridically equal to a homosexual partnership; faith in God is equal to faith in Satan. The excesses and exaggerations of political correctness in these countries indeed leads to serious consideration for the legitimization of parties that promote the propaganda of paedophilia.

    The people in many European states are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are indeed frightened to speak about them. Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or “neutrally” renamed, as if one were ashamed of those Christian holidays. With this method one hides away the deeper moral value of those celebrations.

    And these countries try to force this model onto other nations, globally. I am deeply convinced that this is a direct way to the degradation and primitivization of culture. This leds to deeper demographic and moral crisis in the West.

    What can be better evidence for the moral crisis of human society in the West than the loss of its reproductive function? And today nearly all “developed” Western countries cannot survive reproductively, not even with the help of migrants.

    Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values which have formed, and been developed, over millennia, people will inevitably lose their human dignity and become brutes. And we think it is right and natural to defend and preserve these Christian moral values.

    One has to respect the right of every minority to self-determination, but at the same time there cannot and must not be any doubt about the rights of the majority.

    At the same time as this process plays out at a national level in the West, we observe on an international level the attempts to create a unipolar, unified model of the world, to relativise and remove institutions of international rights and national sovereignty. In such a unipolar, unified world there is no place for sovereign states. Such a world needs merely vassals.

    From a historical perspective, such a unipolar world would mean the surrender of one’s own identity and of God-created diversity.

    I never thought I would respect the leader of Russia, or Russians, like I do.

    • He oesn’t deserve your respect. He is repeating the ideas of Prince Vladimir who had converted Russia to Christianity a thousand years ago. Vladimir didn’t do it because he suddenly “got religion”; in fact, he sent envoys to explore different religions and made a decision based mainly on one criterion: unifying the country under one strong religion that will support one strong ruler. Putin is doing the same, i.e. aiming for monarchy.

        I don’t see it as a problem. Good for him. Good for them.

        Russia will have its monarchy. The rest of the West will have imported their destroyers, killers, thieves, and rapists. All I can say is, Long Live the King.

        Why does Putin have a 93% approval rating?

        Because he gives a s*** about his people, over and above people who are NOT his people.

        Can’t say that about the West. No, we care more about the children of people living on other continents, half a world away, than we do our own children.

        So, if a leader makes a calculated political decision that Christianity is a fine unifying principle? Good. Because it is.

        • Well, yes, as long as it comes with respect and tolerance for other religions. Russian polls and Russian statistics are based on creative accounting. I remember watching the votes coming in when Yeltzin was elected. When they added up to 137%, I realized that nothing has changed there and nothing will. I agree with you that Russia will have its monarchy, otherwise its anarchy. They need “Batyushka Tzar” – the father figure.

        I have a rather thick book from the 80s on how the USSR (read as ‘Russia’) used disinformation (propoganda) as a tool to control people and their perceptions. Putin is a nationalist but he’s also a product of old-school cummunists and about all that’s changed is management’s business plan, not its goals or techniques.
        Putin will play any card, including the religious one, as part of his agenda. I have a hard time believing he survived his time in the KGB as a crypto-Christian or that he’s had a post-USSR spontaneous conversion any more than I’d believe Hillary had she made that speech.

        Goose is excellent, mostly dark meat, and yes, there’s a right way to roast it. Both geese and ducks have a considerably higher percentage of fat than most fowl and it’ll be greasy if you let it roast in a pan full of the rendered fat. We prefer to smoke them, but if you only have an oven put the 100% thawed bird on a rack in a roasting pan and remove the rendered fat with a baster on an as need basis (every 30 min). The rendered fat makes excellent soup stock too.

        We like to spatchcock the bird, apply a generous dry poultry rub on ~ 12 hours before roasting and then brush on a glaze of your choosing at the last 15-30 min before the internal temp hits whatever you want it to. We use a high quality meat thermometer and roast to that number, not hours per lb. Good chance your oven temp is off by a lot more than you think the dial says, ours is really 350Β° when the dial is at 280Β°. That’s a perfect way to screw up a perfectly good bird that’s soaked in its own fat for a few hours in a too hot oven.

        There’s a guy named Malcom Reed who has some youtube videos of smoking everything, including ducks, which is how we smoke our geese. His instructions transfer to an oven as well.

Even though silver had been removed from the country’s coins 9 years earlier there was still a lot in circulation and thry took a lot of spare time combing thru bags of cash to look for them.
            I thought it was excess energy spent on scant return but they assured me that it wouldn’t be long before silver was worth a lot more than it was at the time. I thought it was a waster for them to stay in their bunker and hunt…..it was worth a shot….but they won in the end.

              Anyway, it was about ten years after I left Trump employment and I was back on active duty again. I was sent to a conference in Orlando and Czarina came with me. Imagine my surprise when we get to the conference site and I find we’re staying in the Helmsley hotel there. As we’re checking in I the desk clerk how it was working for the Helmsleys as I’d worked for them when the Towers was new. He made some passing comment, gave us our keys and we were off to our room.
              A few hours later we were eating donnerbin the hotel’s restaurant when the hotel manager came over to our table. He said he’d heard from the clerk that I’d worked for the Helmsleys and called corporate in NYC to say an ex-employee was staying there. They’d confirmed my status and ran it ‘by the boss’ who said that the hotel’s car was to be put at our disposal and free passes to Disney World would be available for our entire stay. The conference ate up all of my time but Czarina had a blast.
              RIP Harry and Leona, that’s how they treated employees who did what they were paid to do.

          I used to do that too. Then I bought this jar with a lid that counts the money. After weeks of adding money and verifying that the running total was correct, we stopped checking it except periodically. Yep, a quarter adds 25 cents.

          So, when the jar got full I took it and cashed it in at one of those machines. Which said I had way, way less money than I knew was in the jar, aside from the fee. No way to complain or get a recount. That was the end of my relationship with the machine.

      Yes but they make money on quarters and dime (I think)… BTW there are 118 reeds on a dime and 119 on a quarter, because you may be facing a trivia question.

    Thomas Sowell. He’s still alive, he just announced his retirement yesterday.

    10 Great quotes, courtesy Vox Day:

    1. “It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.”

    2. “Socialism in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”

    3. “Much of the social history of the Western world, over the past three decades, has been a history of replacing what worked with what sounded good.”

    4. “Each new generation born is in effect an invasion of civilization by little barbarians, who must be civilized before it is too late.”

    5. “The problem isn’t that Johnny can’t read. The problem isn’t even that Johnny can’t think. The problem is that Johnny doesn’t know what thinking is: he confuses it with feeling.”

    6. “The black family survived centuries of slavery and generations of Jim Crow, but it has disintegrated in the wake of the liberals’ expansion of the welfare state.”

    7. “The welfare state is not really about the welfare of the masses. It is about the egos of the elites.”

    8. “I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you have earned but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”

    9. “No one will really understand politics until they understand that politicians are not trying to solve our problems. They are trying to solve their own problems β€” of which getting elected and re-elected are number one and number two. Whatever is number three is far behind.”

    10. “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything.”

    Another win for our crypto-Moslem, pan-Africanist POtuS-lite. The battle for Raqqa, which he hoped to have started well before he left office, seems to be delayed for weeks, if not months. Barry wanted it started so that if it were won, regardless of when it was won, he could claim victory as it began under his reign. Were it lost he could blame Trump as it wouldn’t be finished until after 20 January.
    Even though the battle’s still delayed I’m betting he’ll claim credit as it was planned in the Warrior King’s battle room. Even if the battle fails it will do so under Trump but Obamaceill pass the blame. Win-win for the Man Without a Country.
    I am betting thoughnthat DoD planners will unleash their best anti-Mosle-terr planning for Trump. I’m looking for a period of Trump-ordered sanitization of the Pentagon, putting the planners who view their job of defending the country as more important than kissing the Ass’s ass. Trump, I pray, will view turning warm, breathing enemies of this country into room temperature enemies of the country. I can guarantee that if he takes the job of sterilzing the world of murdering Moslems seriously he’ll find enough dedicated members of the military to do it.
