You might remember hearing a story as a child called “Stone Soup”. There are many variations of this story. The one we were told in Ridgefield, CT was about a Hessian soldier who had been separated from his comrades. He hid out in an old barn in a Colonial Village – cold and hungry. The soldier came up with a plan that would get him food and, perhaps, get the villagers to trust him enough to set up a warm place for him to sleep.
He found an old soup pot in the barn, gathered 3 stones and started a fire in the town square. The story ended with a big pot of “stone soup” filled with good vegetables and herbs contributed by the residents and the group celebrating their new spirit of community.
I have renamed the 2014 version of this classic “Shit Soup”. It is the story of a community divided, outside forces adding toxic ingredients to the recipe and a failure of the sense of family our ancestors relied upon to survive.
Our story begins with a young man committing a strong arm robbery at a convenience store in Ferguson, MO. At the same time, a police officer was attending another call not far from the area in which the robbery took place. Once done with his call, the officer was made aware of the report about the convenience store robbery and given a description of the suspect and his friend. While driving down the road, the officer spotted the suspect and stopped to question him. For some reason, the suspect decided to reach into the patrol car, attempting to take the officer’s weapon (according to the officer). These are the only “facts” that almost all of the eyewitnesses and forensic experts will agree upon. The rest of the evidence is with the Grand Jury. In the end, an 18 year old man died (whether because of his own actions or not) and a city that was on the edge of attaining some peace and working hard to heal themselves economically became split down the middle with a bolt of lightning no one saw coming – outside agitators.
The three stones are Michael Brown (deceased), Officer Wilson and the Grand Jury. The pot is Ferguson.
The fire began when some errors in judgment were made by the Ferguson Police Dept. Leaving the decedent’s body in the middle of the street for hours without a covering stirred up feelings of hatred toward Officer Wilson specifically and the Police Department in general that had been bubbling below the surface for quite some time.
Protests by residents (peaceful at first) stoked the fire a touch more. So did the police department’s refusal to identify the officer and answer questions about how the case was proceeding. Then, the final whoosh from the bellows came to town. Al Sharpton – a human stir stick if I have ever seen one – flew into Ferguson spouting rhetoric designed to create an atmosphere of “us versus them”, white versus black, “the man” versus the people. As usually happens, others followed Reverend Al into town. Some to join the protest, but others with the nefarious intention to take all they could and leave nothing but destruction in their wake. These Sharpton Sheeple added a large variety of contaminated vegetables to the soup.
The AG, Eric Holder, feigned being the water bearer who would distinguish the flame, but instead poured his pitcher of water from the well of hatred into the pot. The soup began to cook.
As the broth warmed, Michael Brown’s family fought amongst themselves over trivial things and received what seemed to be bad advice from self-proclaimed advocates for justice. The words of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preaching peaceful protest were ignored, wadded up and used to fan the flames even more. Minority and white owned businesses alike were looted and left in ruins by gangs containing mostly non-residents of the city. Violent actions toward police and civilians began to increase. The police, however, provided the spoon to stir the pot by making a show of their new military-style weaponry and vehicles designed (or so they claim) to deter further criminal acts. This maneuver had exactly the opposite effect. Jesse Jackson entered the fray. Although his words were not as inflammatory and accusatory as either Sharpton or Holder, he did nothing to stop the process from escalating.
We have watched the soup climb solely to a boil over the past few months. Some days it bubbles more than others. Hate groups such as the KKK and New Black Panthers have added their rotten ingredients to the mix. A group named “Justice for Mike Brown” has devised a map indicating targets for “protest” should the jury decide not to charge Officer Wilson. They also have a list of these places that can be found at http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/11/justice-for-mike-brown-group-releases-list-of-targets-including-anheuser-busch-boeing-emerson-electric-airport/
According to local news reports, gun sales have increased tremendously. The Governor of Missouri has put the National Guard on alert. The bubbling is getting stronger and louder. It is just a matter of time before this pot boils. Once the soup spills over the edge, I fear it will run from city to city in our country, causing a lava-style flow of anger across America. Like Pele on speed, this lava will run swiftly and have much more deadly consequences.
With a combination of three perfect stones, placed in a pot at precisely the right time, life can change in an instant. One forgotten ingredient is God. Does he not have a place in this story? The other ingredient that might have changed the soup from dangerous to calm would have been the presence of sane voices. Sadly, they have been silent and the soup is nearly done.
I took a few minutes to scour the bowels of the internet, checking to see if the left has been cured of the Zachary Disease that’s prevalent in better than 98% of liberals. Nope, negative, no way to fix stupid, but at least the disease is confined to liberals and there’s no chance of it spreading beyond the ignorant.
I noticed the race pimp of a “president” met with some agitators about the ‘unrest’ in Ferguson, Missouri to encourage them to “stay the course.” You know, the course of looting and rioting because the young black guy did something very stupid and got his sh#t blown away. I find it “disturbing” (isn’t that the word politicians use?) that the acting president of the United States would involve himself into a local grand-jury decision in which the fate of a white police officer is in the balance.
Oh, that’s right, Obama probably ‘just now heard’ about the situation.
When I hear about Obama granting amnesty for millions of folks who are here illegally because he considers them “children” or Baby Jesus or Baby Moses and that the legal citizens of America have a responsiblity to house, feed, clothe and provided medical care to them, I’m reminded of a situation in which Jesus Christ found himself. Suffer me to tell the story.
Many years ago Jesus was sitting in the house of a guy named Simon. He was with his disciples. A woman came in who had a container of a very expensive ointment. Well, she poured the ointment on Jesus’ head and then wiped his feet with her hair. In a couple of the gospels the account is given that some of the disciples murmured and railed against the woman claiming the ointment should have been sold and the proceeds given to the poor.
But alas! If we look at a more detailed account of what happened in the Gospel of John we discover who the real villan was who complained about the “waste” of the ointment and why …
Then took Mary a pound of ointment of spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus, and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was filled with the odour of the ointment.
Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him,”
Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?
This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.
There are a couple of lessons to be learned from these few verses of scripture.
First, liberals rail and criticize Christians and attempt to paint them as hateful, bigoted and hypocritical. Out of the twelve disciples of Christ only one was a weasel. The hypocrisy and selfishness of one isn’t a reflection on the character of the others, just like the actions of some professing Christianity isn’t a reflection on Christians collectively. Folks who lump all people of the Christian faith into a group of hypocrites only demonstrate their own ignorance.
The next lesson is people even from Christ’s time on earth exploited the poor for their own personal gain. And we continually see people like Barack Obama and his ilk exploit their own race for personal gain. Liberals always spout off caring for the poor and needy … but are no different from the guy who complained about the ointment and eventually betrayed the Lord Jesus Christ.
I found this over at the RightScoop this afternoon. Watch this very short clip of Barack stuttering and stammering over a question by Ed Henry …
The famous “I just heard about this” line is laughable. Then he goes on … “We had a year long debate” about health care and that there was “not a provision in the health care law that wasn’t extensively debated.”
Thanks to the greatfor this …
Yep, he thinks the American people are stupid. This is the same law of which Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass it to find out what’s in it.” Sooooo … Mr. Obama, if no one really knew what was in it how were all the provisions debated? This is one lying s.o.b. Dumb ass!
I don’t have much time this morning so I’ll just rank on liberals a bit.
Liberals often accuse me of calling them “stupid” … “piles of ass” … “lewd fellows of the baser sort” … “liars” … “dumb-dumbs” … and other adjectives which are quite accurate. What’s funny (not as in ‘humorous’ but as in peculiar) is that even their own say the same thing. Just ask Jonathan Gruber what he thinks.
What would you label someone who makes a claim that Obama-care was crafted by conservatives? What descriptive word would you use when you hear a liberal say something like conservatives will “work their asses off to try to make life miserable for as many middle class people and low-wage earners as possible?”
I won’t even waste time applying labels to folks like the aforementioned. The stupidity is stunning, and it is written, “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.”
While liberals are still crying in their soup about getting their asses kicked on the 4th, Obama’s policies are still getting innocent Americans killed. Yet you don’t hear one of these liberal skid marks mention it. An illegal alien … you know, one of the Baby Jesus or Baby Moses while drunk, plowed his car through a fence into a crowd of people waiting to buy some ice cream killing a three (3) year old little girl and injuring three others including two more children. Oh, and this is just one of the thousands of illegal “dreamers” who Obama will be granting amnesty to. Oh, (again) ICE has been ordered to disregard illegal alien DUIs.
3-Year-Old Waiting in Line for Ice Cream is KILLED by a Drunk Hit-&-Run Driver, Suspect is an Illegal Immigrant [Video]
The sheriff is right… Obama must be stopped. He has blood all over his hands and is directly responsible for deaths such as this 3-year-old. There is absolutely no other way to view this. The government has told officers to look the other way and let known illegal criminals just go. They then commit crimes such as rape and murder and get away with it, because Obama has deemed it so. DHS wants to enable the crimes of these people all for the greater collective good. Obama will grant Amnesty not to the 4.5 million he claims next week, but to 34 million illegal aliens in an effort to forever change the voter demographic of the US before the 2016 elections.
From Fox News Insider:
A 3-year-old girl was killed waiting in line to buy ice cream in California – and the suspect is an illegal immigrant, Trace Gallagher reported today.
Authorities say that 18-year-old Adolfo Balbuena, who does not have a driver’s license, was drunk when he drove his Chevy through a fence, hitting a crowd of people who were waiting in line at an ice cream truck.
Angeles Moreno, 3, was killed. Three others were hurt, including an 8-year-old and a 16-year-old.
Despite a number of witnesses, authorities say Balbuena backed up and fled the scene. He then allegedly drove home and had his brother take him to another location, but was arrested a short time later.
Balbuena just turned 18, so any criminal record in the past has been sealed.
Critics say the Obama administration has cut back enforcement of immigration laws against illegal immigrants with DUI and identity theft convictions.
One ICE attorney has even filed a discrimination lawsuit against the Department of Homeland Security which alleges that she and her colleagues were told to use prosecutorial discretion with illegal immigrants who have old DUI convictions.
Now had this child and the others been shot with a (gasp!) gun … liberals and Barack would be blubbering all over themselves, weeping and wailing, being the phonies they are, about it.
These dumb sons-of-bitches are too busy blowing snot because they got wasted in the elections. I can’t wait until 2016 to seal the deal … as long as it isn’t Jeb Bush, Chris Cristie, or Marco Rubio running. Hillary will get her fat goat-smelling ass trounced. I sincerely believe that the vast majority of the American people are sick of the Barack Obamas of this world and Hillary is nothing more than a white, female Barack. Well, I think “female” … who knows?
It’s laughable to see liberals defend Gruber and Obama lying to the American people by acknowledging the lies then claiming they are still lying, so the original lies are okay. Anyway this piece puts it all together pretty well.

We pointed out in Gruber video #4 how, according to his own admissions, Jonathan Gruber met with Senator Obama in 2006 -and then again with President Obama in 2009- in the Oval Office, to construct the tax scheme within the ObamaCare insurance fraud.
However, what’s missing amid the new discussion created by the recent Gruber revelations is a contrast, or context, to the historical ‘candidate Obama’ Campaign commercials.
So again, just to insure the hammer head meets the nail watch these short (30 second) 2008 campaign commercials which specifically focused on taxation of healthcare premiums:

I’ve been blogging since 2009 and the entire time I’ve been writing about how Obama and the Democrats have been lying about Obama-Care … and frankly, about everything.
Now they openly admit they lied and shoved Obama-care down our throats because they knew the American people did not want it … still don’t … but they needed to get it passed to secure 1/6th of the U.S. economy for the government and control over every American via control over our health care options.

Look What’s Just Been Discovered About ObamaCare Architect Who Cynically Called Voters ‘Stupid’
He said it more than once. ObamaCare architect and advocate Jonathan Gruber — an MIT economist and frequent visitor to the Obama White House — has again been found on video to have put down Americans as too “stupid” to understand what’s really going on with Obama’s health care takeover scheme.
As Western Journalism reported on Tuesday, a chastened Gruber tried to calm the storm that erupted after he was revealed on video to have smugly cited how ObamaCare was made law thanks to administration trickery and congressional deception — a legislative fraud made possible, according to Gruber, because of the “stupidity of the American voter.”
On Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” Congressman Trey Gowdy joined Megyn Kelly in blasting the “arrogance” of Gruber and other ObamaCare backers who have relied on a strategic “lack of transparency” in order to pass and then promote the law that the majority of Americans still don’t like and don’t want.
Gowdy slammed Gruber for insulting the people who put the president in office not once, but twice.
“We were sold a false bill of goods … and they’re laughing all the way to the bank,” he said of ObamaCare.
But you know something folks, Mr. Gruber is right. There are some very stupid people out there who believe the obvious lies fed to them by team Obama. All that’s needed is to put a fancy name on a bill … “The Affordable Care Act” and voila! It’s everything team Obama says it is. You have to be a complete idiot to think for a second the government, especially Obama’s government is honest and transparent. Even Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it.” Yet the real stupid people, simply because of the name of the law … actually believe what they are told. The following statements were made by some of those folks …
“I think we need to be getting our information about Obama Care from the government website about Obama Care rather than from those who hate it so much and would do anything …in my opinion…to deny 30 million American the benefits of it.”
“See: http://healthcare.gov if you want the truth about Obama Care.”
“Stop listening to the confusion coming out of the right wing propaganda machine.”
Now, the very people who fed the American people noting but lies actually admit it openly. Yep, there really are stupid people out there, and what’s even stupider is they still write the above even after they are told by the liars that they lied to them.

Folks, I sometimes don’t realize how right I am on some subjects. But I have to tell you, when it comes to revealing just how stupid liberals are, they prove my point every single time.
It gets no better folks!
