The Modern Day Harlot and Me

selfie on steroids

The Bible helps us understand life and the characters in it.  This is what I learned from my relationship that ended earlier this year.  It’s a lesson God wanted me to learn I guess.

Thank God it’s over.  But this is a description – and confession by me – of that situation I put myself in.

Proverbs Chapter 7 describes the way of an adulteress, contrasting with Proverbs 8 which sets forth the way of wisdom.  It features an eye-witness account of the seduction of a man by an adulteress.

Proverbs 7:11: She is stubborn and never at rest, always agitated; busily employed to gain her end, and this is to go into the path of error, “turning aside;” preferring any way to the right way.  And, therefore, it is added, her feet abide not in her house, she gads abroad; and this disposition probably first led her to this vice. 

For me, it began with her saying, “I was kissing another man and all I could think of was, what would it be like to kiss you?”  It went on from there:

7:17 I have perfumed my bed with myrrh, aloes, and cinnamon.

7:18 Come, let us take our fill of love until the morning: let us solace ourselves with love.

This is what Solomon said about this type of woman:

Then there’s this other woman, Madame Whore—
brazen, empty-headed, frivolous.
She sits on the front porch of her house on Main Street (or in this case church, Facebook & Twitter)
And as people walk by minding their own business, she calls out,
“Are you confused about life, don’t know what’s going on?
Steal off with me, I’ll show you a good time!
No one will ever know—I’ll give you the time of your life.”
But they don’t know about all the skeletons in her closet,
that all her guests end up in hell.
Solomon continues:

Now then, my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths.  Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.

The description of seduction in Proverbs 7:11-21 includes several indicators of the integrity and character plus the tactics and approaches that this type of sinful women have used for thousands of years to lure men.

First, notice how the seductress appeals to the senses. This woman has prepared the perfect environment for her seductions, and everything about her approach is meant to be attractive to his sight (starting with selfies in today’s culture), smell, and touch, even his emotions. In fact, the only thing she does not try to use on him is real logic. But the atmosphere here is just perfect for what she is intending.

Her emphasis is on:

  • Gaining material wealth — at least enough so she can live independent of God’s providential care.
  • Gaining power and influence — so she can exert control rather than having someone control her.
  • Physical pleasure—on pleasing the self, rather than serving others.
  • Fashion, self-image, and being noticed—so that she can attract attention, rather than pay attention to others in encouragement or other forms of service.

She has heard Solomon’s words but does not listen or act on them: “Don’t you realize that making friends with God’s enemies — the evil pleasures of this world — makes you an enemy of God? I say it again, that if your aim is to enjoy the evil pleasure of the unsaved world, you cannot also be a friend of God.”

She does it anyway.

These passages detail some of a harlot’s characteristics.  A careful study would find that she is described as deviously sly and cunning in that she feigns love, knowing how to pull a man’s strings. Her “love” is strictly business — it is nothing but window dressing.  Part of her eye-appealing attraction is her purposeful seduction.

She is described as “loud,” which might be better rendered as turbulent, flighty, confused, inconstant, and unstable.  She lacks dignity (although feigns it) and gravity, integrity and character, and she is stubborn, defiant, brazen, deliberately obstinate, and headstrong.

Almost every responsible person I know describes her that way.

Further, she is aggressive, impudent, contemptuous, presumptuous, and disrespectful. Wow does that sound familiar.

She is a harlot.

HarlotHarlotry has its base in lust, deceit, and treachery, entered into, executed, or performed for what the perpetrator believes is an immediate gain.  Not every case of harlotry follows Delilah’s (the woman that seduced Samson) exact pattern, but the motivations center on sinning for personal gain, an element that never seems to change.

Delilah illustrates a greedy, smooth-talking temptress.  Biblically, she rejects God’s provision for her of a Godly husband to seek personal, “more satisfying” gain by other means.  The driving forces are unbelief and distrust combined with self-indulgence primarily expressed through greed.

The term “greed” may sound harsh, considering the circumstances some women get themselves into before choosing to prostitute themselves.

However, we have to learn that nobody has to sin — but something motivates us to do so.

Greed is “expressing excessive desire, especially for food (her greed of choice), drink, or wealth.”  We give ourselves and others an almost endless stream of justifications for sinning, but the bottom line is that we are simply unwilling to pay the price to discipline ourselves to do what is right. In our impatience, we convince ourselves that righteousness will not get us anything.

Proverbs Chapter 9 makes the conclusion:

A foolish woman is clamorous – Vain, an empty woman, those that make the most noise. And she that is full of clamor, has generally little or no sense. Proverbs 9:13

And so she continues….

“I’m a Victim So I Can Do Anything I Want Today”

victim mentality

There are some that try to explain their current actions and bad behavior on what happened in the past.  It’s called a victim mentality.

They will even go so far as to blaspheme icons of faith to justify and rationalize the disgusting things they do today.

These are evil acts and statements that lack humility, discard goodness as not real, have a complete disregard for faith and good works, and they try to make a mockery of anyone that works hard to rise above what has happened to them.

Don’t let these self-identified victims influence your thinking.  They have destructive purposes for themselves and others – to bring as many as they can down to their level.

Most have had plenty of opportunities in faith and relationships to use those blessings and power to live a life that is productive, positive, and helpful for themselves and others.  But, they must choose it. Don’t enable their victimhood if they don’t choose what’s right, honorable, and good.

There is no reason for doing something filthy – ever, especially today.

Rise up!   Choose integrity, honesty, and loyalty.  You’ll be blessed because you did.

 

The Man is Both an Incompetent and a Liar

20140613-005200-3120864.jpgObama: “The World Is Less Violent Than It Has Ever Been.”

Really?

Baghdad is about to fall to terrorists, Mosul has fallen with streets lined with decapitated heads, Tikrit, Syria, Nigeria, Thailand, Kenya, Burma, Ukraine, Crimea, North Korea, Iran, Egypt….

ISIS, AQAP, Hezb’Allah, Uighurs, Boko Haram, al Quseda, the Muslim Brotherhood — and that’s just this last couple of weeks.

What an idiot to say something like that.

 

Liberals Think and Speak Like 5 Year-Olds

And they aren’t the only ones…

I don’t mean to insult 5 year-olds.  Sorry little guys and girls.

Evan Sayet

Evan Sayet

A very Liberal Jewish comic from New Yawk saw the light right after 9/11.  He grew up thinking “Democrats are good, Republicans are evil.”  But that changed.

His name is Evan Sayet. He couldn’t understand how Liberals, the left in this country, could fault the United States and its people for what happened that day – the blame that went on from the “America is at fault for everything” crowd.

Mr. Savet is now a conservative.  Here’s why:

Have you noticed how everything seems to be upside down?  Things that used to be considered right are now wrong and wrong behavior is now defended to the death.

Mr. Savet investigated and he has come up with an analysis that explains what happened and when, how it happened, and how it is impacting this country and its future.

He calls it the “Unified Field Theory of Liberalism.”  Critical rational judgment is being eliminated in America.  Not only is it disappearing, if you attempt to use it, you will be vilified.

You should be very afraid America.

This is a malignancy of the mind and spirit. It impacts our work ethic, our communication with each other, our economy, our values, and our morality.  Some call it political correctness; but, it’s deeper than that. Deeper than language.

The subcultural hostility on our way of life is breaking the back of the population through wrongheadedness, all from within.

And it’s not only those that brand themselves as a Liberal that are touched by this cultural and logical flip-flop, where right is now wrong and wrong is now right.  Many conservatives and the religious fall into the trap too.  One “must not judge” say the sheepl.

liberal logicThe problem with not judging, critical thinking to decide what the right thing to do is, that means there is no judgment about right and wrong.  There’s no judgment about anything.

And anyone that points out an obvious wrong is considered worse than the person that did the wrong in the first place. They are automatically labeled a hater, a racist, an abuser, intolerant …oh my God a judger.  Nothing could be worse than that right?

Didn’t we used to look up to folks that had great judgment and decision-making ability?  Now they are the hated.  Their motivations are questioned even though they have or promote great ideas.

They are attacked every way possible.  And not just the idea is attacked.  The person is maligned, investigations are launched, campaigns are waged.  All to destroy the person with good judgment that risks saying what they think.

Liberals, and many conservatives, now seek to find the wrong and fault in every issue and conversation, even in the most straightforward of topics, and they work hard to defend the opposite side.  They call it deep thinking.  I call it thinking too much, so much so that you’ll talk yourself into defending stupidity.

It’s a lack-of-logic and common sense that has penetrated our workplaces, schools, media, culture, courts, government, almost all areas of life in this country.  And if it doesn’t stop, if the insanity doesn’t reverse, we will implode just like ancient Rome and Greece did at the peak of their empires.

A great word picture to demonstrate the problem with Liberal logic, as remembered by Mr. Sayet about when he was five years-old:

When I was five years-old I wanted to buyout the New York Worlds Fair because it was closing just down the street from my neighborhood. I didn’t want it to close.  I told my father that we could move the monorail that went around the park and put it up alongside the Long Island Expressway.  It would ease congestion and pollution.

I really just wanted to do it because I liked to see it and ride on it. I didn’t want it to go away.  I used adult concerns to justify my childish desire.

His father explained to him that it would be very expensive, technically it would be hard to engineer, the bureaucracy to get the right-of-way, they wouldn’t be able to re-coop the cost with ticket sales, and so on…

Mr. Sayet’s father used grownup judgment to explain why it couldn’t be done – in fact it shouldn’t be attempted.  Critical thinking.  An adult showed him, based on judgment, the folly of the idea.

As a five year-old, Mr. Sayet didn’t accept the judgment because he didn’t get what he wanted.

That’s just like the conversations today with a modern Liberal.  If they don’t get what they want, no matter how stupid the idea, they throw a tantrum.  The modern day tantrum is to label their “enemy” as a bigot, hater, etc.

Mr. Sayet has figured it out.  His voice should be heard, listened too, and acted on.  Don’t let Liberals shut you up, destroy your critical thinking and judgment.  Speak out about what is wrong and what is right about an idea and America.

The Word ‘No’ and Political Correctness

political correct voltaireGeorge Orwell in his novel 1984 imagined a world where speech was greatly restricted.

He said the language that the totalitarian state created is “Newspeak.”

It bears a striking resemblance to the political correctness that we see in America right now.

Wikipedia defines Newspeak as “a reduced language created by the totalitarian state as a tool to limit free thought, and concepts that pose a threat to the regime such as freedom, self-expression, individuality, peace, etc. Any form of thought alternative to the party’s construct is classified as ‘thoughtcrime.’”

Have you been accused of “inappropriate” speech yet?  Almost all of us have – in the workplace, in school, even in our homes.

All you have to do is use the word “no.”  The word itself is considered offensive by the politically correct fanatic.

political correctness feelingsPolitical correctness is a defensive strategy, a manipulation and rebellion against the word “no,” against tradition and the existence of the culture a society is founded upon.

Folks don’t like it when they are told no.  And rather than discuss, or argue – which is so politically incorrect – they pick on the language to defeat the “no.”

If you use the word ‘no’ now you will be labeled as an offensive person, a racist, as intolerant, as a bad person, even an emotional abuser.

It puts the manipulator in control of getting anything they want, without any accountability or resistance.

Political correctness is an outright assault on tradition, parental values, personal relationships – and promotes tyranny in our country, in our workplaces and schools, and our homes.

Let me be clear: You can be politically correct all you want. The PC can say all you want.  Go ahead.  That’s your choice.  I’m not demanding the PC be silent. 

What I’m advocating is that regular folks resist you.  Don’t give in.  Say something back.  Don’t let the politically correct silence you and your values!  That’s what they are trying to do.  Silence YOU!

On the surface most of us know that politically correct advocacy is stupid. But we allow it to continue… even participate in it so we don’t “offend” anyone.

Pointing out the obnoxious nature of political correctness is the crucial importance of plain speaking, freedom of choice, and freedom of speech.  I’m sure that my writing this will brand me as at least intolerant and at most a hater.

There are community safe-guards against the imposition of tyranny.  In reality their absence is tyranny (see “On Liberty” by John Stuart Mill).

Which is why any restrictions on expression, such as those invoked by the laws of libel, slander, and public decency, are grave matters to be decided by common law, not by the dictates of the mob or politicians that never seemed to grow beyond the rebellious nature of high school study-hall.

A community declines when the majority of its citizens become selfish.

Don't allow traditional holidays or religion. If you do you're a bigot!Under this manipulation it slowly dismantles all the restraints upon self-indulgence established by manners, customs, beliefs, law, and tradition.

As each subsequent and expanding generation of selfish citizens inherits control of the community, they abandon more of the irksome restraints that genius and wisdom had installed.

Where does this lead?

I don’t advocate racism, sexism, intolerance, emotional abuse, violence, or anything like it.  I do advocate using the word no.

  • No – don’t lie.
  • No – don’t cheat.
  • No – don’t steal.
  • No – don’t treat people badly.  Saying no is not necessarily treating someone badly.
  • No – you can’t have something you haven’t earned.
  • No – don’t be nasty to someone that is offering to help you.
  • No – we can’t buy it because we don’t have the money.
  • No – our children must behave to get extra benefits. Don’t give it to them if they misbehave.
  • No – not everyone gets a trophy. The folks that have the God given talent, worked hard, and won get the trophy.
  • No – don’t talk to me in that tone of voice when I’m being nice and helpful.
  • No – don’t break the rules.
  • No – don’t be immoral.
  • No – don’t do what is wrong.
  • No – don’t break commitments.
  • No – don’t do anything nasty or disgusting.

In every case above, rational people would say it’s okay to say no almost all the time.

The manipulator tries to get you to not use that word, not say it, not think it.  They want the concept of ‘no’ to not be used against them.

The manipulator wants to do it anyway, no matter what you say.

What’s wrong with saying no to stop a wrong?  Many folks today consider using the word no as an offense.  In fact the professional manipulator thinks pointing out a wrong is worse than the wrong itself.

The Politically Correct (PC) say you have to be positive.  The key phrase there is “have to.”  The PC want to control your thought and speech.

Person PC, that executes the politically correct strategy, will claim an honest person is a liar if they tell the truth, just because PC doesn’t like what the honest person says.

In the same strain of manipulation, a PC person will claim emotional abuse when they are told ‘no’ or when the PC doesn’t agree with the other person.

They may even go as far as to claim that they were afraid of the person that says no, even though these is no evidence of anything threatening, emotional or physical (and never has been) – just to rationalize their manipulating thoughts, reactions, behavior, and desires – their SELFISHNESS.
political correct 4
All the manipulation and political correctness comes down to dishonesty.  To be honest, you must have a moral code based on something other than your selfish desires.  You must know right from wrong. And you must take personal responsibility for anything bad you say or do.

Where to go from here?  Our society better turn this around.  If not, we will go the way of the Roman Empire.  Sinking under the weight of our sins, selfishness, and immorality.

It is going to take YOU to speak up and speak out.  Speak your mind.  Have the courage to enter the discussion.  Say NO when someone is wrong.

Argue intelligently and with facts.  You don’t have to be mean about it.  But make sure your point is delivered.  There is nothing wrong with saying no.

In fact, it is appropriate at times to say hell no.

Couldn’t Resist…

Obama NopeAfter one incompetent policy after another, I couldn’t resist the T-Shirt.  The only thing better would be one that said Dope.

The latest is the Obamacare website Healthcare.gov and Obamacare itself.

As a website producer, I looked with amazement as anyone, and I mean ANYONE, that thought you could run the entire healthcare insurance industry from ONE (1) website, is a COMPLETE idiot.

Whose STUPID IDEA was that?  Did they think they could become Amazon or EBay overnight?  The FS*%*&^) of it all just amazes me.  This is short-bus stupid.

This is what happens when you try to centralize something for 300 million people. It didn’t work in the USSR or other socialist / communist countries.  Why would anyone think it would work here?  And to depend on a single website to manage all the variables and interactions?  Just plain dumb.

There has been one honest report after another that shows how the healthcare exchange insurance offers are more costly than current health insurance plans, that millions are losing their current health insurance because they don’t “qualify” for Obamacare, and that Obama’s cronies are getting special exceptions so they aren’t subjected to Obamacare.

Sources inside the Department of Health and Human Services told The Daily Mail that only 6,200 Americans signed up for coverage the day HealthCare.gov launched, while only 51,000 applied in the first week.

I could go on forever but you get the idea….

Obama wants you to use “Navigators.” What the F is a Navigator?  Sounds like a character from a D-Rated sci-fi communist flick. This is the height of dumb.  God help us all.

A Nope, Dope is running the show.  You elected him America.  Proud of yourself?

Idiots.

And it’s not over yet folks.  This is just the beginning.  Strap in, you’re about to get the shaft in a place you never wanted it.

Most of the folks that I know that work for non-government employers are getting their hours cut to part-time so the employer doesn’t have to subject himself to the Obamacare idiocy.  Another unintended consequence of this failed scheme.  More unemployment and under-employment.

Have you had enough of the con-artist yet?

Stay tuned.  Obamacare is more dangerous than all the terrorists combined.  It’s gonna hurt millions, not just a few thousand.

This Well Known Company Apparently Doesn’t Like or Believe in the U.S. Constitution

Authorize Net Visa Do Not Use

The company is Visa, with its brands Authorize.net and Cybersource

Authorize.net has a new policy that won’t allow legal American businesses use their online credit card processing services… because they sell LEGAL firearms.  That’s right, guns.

In a recent letter to the Hyatt Gun Shop, one of the largest gun stores in the United States, the Visa brand Authorize.net, said they were terminating their agreement because they sold “firearms or any similar products.”

Authorize.net is one of the largest online payment gateways in the country.

The letter:

Dear Hyatt Gun Shop Inc,

Authorize.Net LLC (“Authorize.Net”) has determined that the nature of your business constitutes a violation of Section 2.xiv of the Authorize.Net Acceptable Use Guidelines and Sections 3.3 and 11.3 of the Authorize.Net Service Agreement (the “Agreement”). These sections include, but are not limited to, the sale of firearms or any similar product. Accordingly, pursuant to Section 4 of the Acceptable Use Guidelines, your ability to access and use the Authorize.Net Services will be terminated on September 30, 2013.

Apparently Visa executives are fans of President Obama and his policies to make firearms, ammunition, and business services for the firearms industry hard to get.

Well I’m a fan of the United States Constitution.

Because Visa and Authorize.net corporate policy doesn’t care for our country and our constitutional rights, I’m cutting up my Visa card and finding other service providers other than Visa and Authorize.net on my, and my many client websites, to process online purchases.

I grew up with firearms. They are tools just like a knife, a shovel, chainsaw, or a wrench (all of which have been used to kill people).  Tools don’t kill.  The operator does.

The difference is, firearms are protected, rightly so, by the U.S. Constitution – for a lot of really good reasons.

It figures that Visa is out of California. Authorize net’s headquarters is in San Francisco.  What a surprise. They’re drinking the koolaid for stupid people.

We all make decisions about policies that we agree with and it shows up in our purchases and the way we market products and services if we’re in business. This policy by Visa Corporation, to go against the U.S. Constitution, is downright dumb and they should suffer the consequences.

The folks on both coasts don’t believe in the 2nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution but most of the people in the wide middle of the country do.

Make Visa Hurt Folks!

I suggest that you cut up your Visa card and get other online payment services for your business too. If you see an Authorize.net logo on a site where you purchase products, buy from another site that doesn’t use Authorize.net.

And while your’re at it, contact both and tell them you don’t agree with their policy and what you’re doing about it.  Phone numbers, addresses, contact pages etc:

www.authorize.net/support/

www.corporate.visa.com/utility/contact-us.shtml

Will you join me?
