“Libertarians, of course, have no problem holding on to the beliefs they do because, for the most part, if someone trashes their beliefs, it’s not a problem since they have an underlying nihilistic mentality. And so “free speech” serves their purposes quite well. They can say anything what they want; and they can permit the pornification of the culture because it matches their relativistic and valueless ideals.”

It promises that Obama will put on the mask of Herod and slaughter ever more children in the wombs of their mothers. It promises that Obama will put on the mask of Marx and work to subsume more of the factors of production into the soothing arms of the state. It promises that Obama will put on the mask of an obsessive nanny and work to bring into utter dependency as many citizens as he can. It promises that Obama will put on the mask of Mussolini and work to bring every aspect of American culture under watchful government eyes. It promises that Obama will put on the mask of a rock star and draw his screaming groupies into a mindless chanting of his name. It promises that Obama will put on the mask of a savior and promise his disciples redemption through the policies he will force upon them.

He is a man of many masks, all of them ugly.”

    • Dear Commenter:

      God bless you!

      However, I wonder if English is indeed your first language. If you mean to say “Some Canadians are obviously stupid, such as you, Mr. Mean Blogger”, you might want to say it directly, instead of with a circumlocution which actually says that we understand and recognize stupidity.. perhaps “Brains are obviously wasted on some Canadians.”

      Those incapable of the Queen’s English, basic insults, or making their point clear are not perhaps best situated for commenting on the intelligence or lack thereof of a blogger, or his/ her postings, or what, exactly that has to do with being Canadian.

      Pray for me, a sinner,
