Armed Bears and Homeland Security

The Bearforce seems to be a popular meme lately. At least in the Cheezburger universe.

This could be a solution to a couple of problems here in Arizona. The Border Patrol is spread out over a huge wilderness on the border. The drug cartel guys are really taking advantage of this. I hate those drug-slime guys.

I hate the term illegal immigrant. Let's let the immigrants, legal or not, sit on the back burner for a while. We need to concentrate on these cartels wreaked terror onto Mexican citizens and are now bringing their own special mayhem here. 

The Border Patrol is overrun. And they're getting way more help than is wise from various politicians and radical citizens around here. I couldn't say with great assurance that this unsolicited help is interfering with the job of the Border Patrol, but I suspect it could become so in the near future.

Enter the Bearforce.

They would make great coordinators of all efforts on behalf of the border.  They have pals in the lower altitudes: Coyotes (4-legged,) coatimundi, rattlesnakes, gila monsters, quail (the bird, not the politician,) sheep...the whole team is out there. These guys know what's goin' down in their territory.

 And they can fight back. Cretaceously.

We'll just put the bears in charge and the entire team becomes the Bearforce, ready to tear any drug-bastard to shreds. .

Things That Make The Day Go Faster

Our "outdoor preacher" was back again today. Always nice to see him. His dedication is inspiring.

Today's message:
Read the Bible! Avoid Hell!

Well, not so bad. The Bible can be dry reading but, what the heck, some food for thought in there. Avoiding hell is always a plus in anybody's book.

Today's statement is missing a few theological steps. First off, it assumes there is a hell. What with all of us being God's children, the idea that we would be sent to hell seems incongruent. I'm not discounting the possibility of hell. In fact, I have asked the Lord to please let me know if there is, in fact, a hell.

For argument's sake, though, let's assume there is a hell.

Our man's statement seems to equate reading the Bible with avoiding hell. If I understand the logic he is applying, I simply must beg to differ. Reading the Bible doesn't get anybody away from hell. Satan himself, if he exists, might just read the Bible. I don't see this theoretical being removing himself from this theoretical hell no matter what he reads. So, there's a fallacy there.

Beyond Satan, I have a problem with, say, evil-doers reading the Bible under the mistaken assumption that the act alone will get them into heaven. Problematic. In a Christian context, and I'm assuming that's the case since the Bible is being featured, there are just a few more things a person must do to go to heaven.

Nope. Just gotta disagree with our man the preacher on this one.

I am also feeling a bit worried for the dude. He's starting to mumble a bit. It took me 4 or 5 repetitions to realize the last phrase was Avoid Hell. Not A Good Sign.

But rock on, preacher-man! You bring character to our little spot in the Libraryland Universe. Your dedication has not gone unnoticed. Be who you are and damn the consequences!
