Gun-Control: It’s Not About Crime

Keep thee far from a false matter, the innocent and the righteous slay thou not: for I will not justify the wicked” Exodus 23:7

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Every time a “teen-ager” in Milwaukee shoots a little girl, the Dishonorable Tom Barrett calls a press conference and lisps that we need more gun-control to reduce the crime that he subsidizes. This leads the Pro-gun defenders off onto a rabbit trail, debating statistics that the average citizen doesn’t remember. Continue reading

What Are Taxes On Your Existence?

Rob not the poor, because he is poor:
neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:” Proverbs 22:22

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            In 1773, the Boston Sons of Liberty held their Boston Tea Party protest by throwing British tea into the Boston Harbor. The Tea Tax violated the principle of “No Taxation without Representation.” Yet, if a person found that tax egregious, he could have went without tea, and not been any worse for wear.

Do You Know Any Commies?

Ye shall know them by their fruits.
Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” Matthew 7:16

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            Most people will think, “What a ridiculous question.” “The Berlin Wall fell in 1989, and you are behind the times.” “I don’t see any red stars, and hammer and sickle symbols and red flags.” Once you get past the shock of that question, I will present to you some facts that don’t get much attention these days. There are still overtly Communist Nations, namely the People’s Republic of China, Vietnam, Laos, and Cuba. There are several that are Communist by policy, but not in name. Venezuela, Brazil and Zimbabwe readily come to mind. Continue reading

I Reject Social Justice

This he said, not because he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief,
and had the bag, and bare what was put therein.” John 12:6

By Riley J. Hood-CPoW State Chairman

            In 1979, nuns teaching my CCD class promoted the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua. I was fed the same line about the Khmer Rouge 4 years before, those “workers for social justice” murdered 30% of Cambodia’s population. These nuns weren’t aberrant, their teaching was commonplace. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend wrote, “As good American, Catholic children, we prayed for the souls in Russia and the end of Communism after every Mass. The anti-religious nature of the Soviet Union and the persecution of Christians there horrified us. But when it came to the economic and social principles of Communism, the nuns were not shocked. How different was it from the lives they themselves were living, the lives Christ had asked them to live? After all, they pointed out, they, too shared property….Unlike much of the country, they lived lives that revolved around justice and truth, rather than money.” She thinks poverty is great. The glitch in her reasoning is that the nun’s lifestyle is voluntary. Continue reading
