UGP #445 Rules & Laws Versus Virtues And Aliens
Jesus taught us virtues instead of depending on laws and rules...Progtards are empowered by creating rule after law after requirement...but conservatives live by a code and way of life alien to progtard thinking (word used loosely)
In THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES, nationally renowned journalist, Senior Writer for the Weekly Standard and author Jonathan Last leads an all-star team of 18 conservative writers in a hilarious, insightful, and sanctimony-free remix of the Book of Virtues. THE SEVEN DEADLY VIRTUES sits down next to readers at the bar, buys them a drink, and an hour (or three) later, ushers them into the revival tent without them even realizing it. This collection of 18 original essays—by such writers as P.J. O’Rourke, Christopher Buckley, Jonah Goldberg, and Andrew Ferguson—aims at rediscovering the virtuous life in an era of momentous change.
As Jonathan Last argues—the problem today isn’t that we “no longer live in an age concerned with virtue. The problem is that we have organized ourselves around the wrong virtues.” He maintains that we’re now incorrectly structuring society around “seven modern virtues” (Freedom, Convenience, Progress, Equality, Authenticity, Health, and Nonjudmentalism) instead of the “seven cardinal virtues”.
Virtues are universal and recognized by all cultures as basic qualities necessary for our well-being and happiness>
We know if we forgive someone then we may not be as angry and uptight, and we know it takes courage to accomplish great things. So why then, if we know what to do, do we still stay stuck? Because we have not yet consciously and boldly applied a virtue to a given situation so as to alter its outcome, from what has always been to what can be.

In Episode 50 of Stark Naked Radio, coming to you from Irvine, California in the heart of Orange County, Dr. Dayne Grove gets into the details of Vitamin C. He discusses the need our body has, the fact it can't produce its own, the chemical affect is has on our physiology, the foods to eat to increase your Vitamin C, as well as the fact that you MUST supplement because of the quality of our food sources. He also describes a simple approach to determine how much Vitamin C you actually need (a very personal dosage), variations in supplement quality, and taking Vitamin C intraveneously (IV).

Thursday November 19, 2015 @ 9PM CST… Theme of the week: “You Are Still the One” “Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity. Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.” Colossians 3:12-17.

The National Black-Out buy black campaign is on and we will receive the Justice we seek as a People. Too long have Black People endured this racists system with pain and misery. Now we will fight back on the economic battle field. There will be not Profits on the 25th of the month anymore. We will not only Boycott White Establishment America Corporation System but, we will establish our own new system for Buy Black Campaign. We must start to empower our own Neighborhoods and our own People!! "First, however, there are some questions we have to put to you. Since the black masses here in America are now in open revolt against the American system of segregation, will these same black masses turn toward integration or will they turn toward complete separation? Will these awakened black masses demand integration into the white society that enslaved them or will they demand complete separation from that cruel white society that has enslaved them? Will the exploited and oppressed black masses seek integration with their white exploiters and white oppressors or will these awakened black masses truly revolt and separate themselves completely from this wicked race that has enslaved us? MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZZ, Brothers and Sisters we are waging economic war against the UNITED SNAKES OF AMERICA. So we must have a common method, let us refer to the Tzu, Sun. “The Art of War”
“The five cardinal virtues of the Chinese are (1) humanity or benevolence; (2) uprightness of mind; (3) self-respect, self- control, or "proper feeling;" (4) wisdom; (5) sincerity or good faith. Here "wisdom" and "sincerity" are put before "humanity or benevolence," and the two military virtues of "courage" and "strictness" substituted for "uprightness of mind" and "self- respect, self-control, or 'proper feeling."
