2012: My Year in Posts

My post from 2012 have been a cornucopia of thoughts and ideas of events both national, international and personal.  I was going to list my top 10 posts, but have decided, instead, to do a year in review, classified by topic.

 

The Occupy Movement:
My year began with a little post "Occupy Orlando is Like a Flock of Geese" This little piece would not be noteworthy, especially compared with my other occupy posts "Occupiers: A Mobocratic Cult" and the more popular "OWS Death of a Movement," except that it was my first post of the new year.   And with that, 2012 began.

Whoda Thunk?
Who could forget the cruise ship Costa Concordia that went off course and grounded off the coast of the island of Giglio and her captain Capt. Francesco Schettino who changed the course of the ship causing her to ground and who was also one of the first people off the ship. This caused me to ask: "Abandon Ship, Who is First?"

Abortion
In February there was much talk about whether there was a link between abortion and breast cancer.  Both sides were spewing out "facts" which supported their side.  While I am pro-life, I am also not one for using false information to support my position so I decided to do my own research to find out if there was, indeed a connection between abortion and breast cancer.  "Depoliticizing the Abortion/Breast Cancer Link" was the result of my research.

Citizen's Rights
Our current administration as well as some local and state governments see nothing wrong with the trampling on the rights of it's citizens to further their destructive agendas. I've written several posts on this topic. Much in the headlines today is how ObamaCare is trampling on religious freedom as I spoke of in "The Defense of Religious Freedom."  Our country was founded on religious freedom. Our forefathers were religious men and it was clearly their intent to preserve and protect the religious freedoms of the people of the United States of America. So important to them was this, that when writing the Bill of Rights, it was number one on their list of things to add to the Constitution as evidenced by the fact that it is the first sentence of the First Amendment.  I also noted how Obama's Divisionary Policies Drop Kick Judeo-Christian America. Not to mention that Obamacare Will lead to Loss of Jobs and Lower Quality Health Care.

Two events this year, the Colorado movie theater shooting and the Newtown, CT shooting we have seen the insane cry from the left for strict gun control.  I wrote, what is my most read and discussed post to date, Does Research and Statistics Support Gun Control?  In spite of irrefutable evidence that gun control doesn't prevent crime in addition to the fact that these laws would go against the 2nd Amendment, there are those who want stricter gun control and absurd anti-gun laws.

I concluded that America Needs to Return to the Basics and to follow the founding documents, our "Charters of Freedom" of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and the Bill of Rights, as they were written and as they were intended to be.  I keep hearing people remark that many of the founding fathers were not Christian and some, Thomas Jefferson in particular, were atheist and that Christianity had no part in the creation of the United States. This prompted me to research and write The Reality of Thomas Jefferson's Spirituality

Don't Believe Everything You Read
Also this year, I made a request To the Leftist Cattle, Stop Mindlessly Following the Herd for believing everything they hear, whether true or not and to remind them to seek the facts for themselves. In this case, it was about Rush Limbaugh.

Exploitation to Advance Agendas
Locally, March brought the shooting of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman.  I wrote 2 posts about the fallout surrounding the case.  The Death of a Boy Makes Opportunistic Vultures Drool and Exploiting Death to Recruit Members, RevCom Comes to Town.  Looking back, I should have combined the two posts I wrote about it because they both fall under the topic of exploitation of the shooting to advance their own agendas.  The trial has yet to take place, but that didn't stop Critical Race Theory proponents Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson and Communist groups from exploiting the case.  I followed it up with my piece Septic Racism which shows the effects the protests by Jackson/Sharpton had on the merchants of the city of Sanford, FL.  I also wrote about FL laws pertaining to the case.

Obama Administration Anti-Israel Stance
I've written a series of posts on the Obama administrations anti-Israel stance.  The first of the series was written in June of 2011 entitled "Obama and American Jews Movement from Left to Right" and in August of 2011 "Terrorist Attacks, Israel, the Gaza Strip and response of the U.N. and U.S." As we progressed through 2012, I asked myself are Jewish Obama Supporters: Ignorant or Turning a Blind Eye? and while there was a substantial movement of Jews away from Obama, the answer was that For 69 Percent of Jewish Voters, Israel Takes a Back Burner.   


In Memoriam
On a personal note, in November I lost my great uncle Danny The Last of a Generation at the age of 103 and in August my 12 year old Labrador, Stormi, passed away and is taking Long Walks in Heaven.
