Is it just me….or do you also notice…..
that some people don’t understand the the First Amendment (Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..) did you notice it doesn’t say…AHHH don’t mix religion and government? Yea, oddly it totally did NOT. Crazy right? For those of you, who don’t understand those words, they mean…..Congress won’t designate an official religion, and they won’t ban a religion (at least theoretically). That is it, nothing more, nothing less.
Our prayers and thoughts go out to Ukraine, sadly people have died, to ensure that the government of Ukraine listens to their people. Something about that weird ass term, democracy, go figure, maybe it will catch on. Who knows. No government can stand against the will of the people. Get informed.
Have you heard what is going on in Scotland? Sir William Wallace, himself, has risen from the grave, and killed every single member of the Scottish Parliament with his Claymore. It was insane, blood and guts everywhere. Oh wait, no that totally did not happen, but the Scottish parliament (may each and every member die the same way Sir William did) voted (105 to 0) for “the Children and Young People Bill” (oddly wikipedia doesn’t have any information on it passing), assigns a “named person” to oversee each and every child in Scotland. [Longshanks is loving this.] Allegedly, for the child’s own good. [Of course, if you believe that, I have some premium ocean front property for sale in Arizona. Best available, going quick. Seriously, don’t miss this chance to make me obscenely wealthy].
Anyway, if you think this is a nice and caring way to take care of children, I have to say,
You, Sir or Madam, are a DUMBASS! If you are a realists, and realize that this is most definitely on the slippery slope of statism, I welcome you to the planet earth, most of you have been here long before me.
Let us take a quick walk on the path of possibilities…
let us assume, that the next David Beckham (please use Michael Jordan, Babe Ruth, or Peyton Manning if it pleases you) is born in Scotland. Do you really think that the “named person” would not in some way shape and or form, want a piece of that action, money-wise? PUH-LEZE. That child would be out of your custody so quickly, you’d think he/she was the neighbors kid. All for the good of the child (read: Government). You object? Yea, your rights as a parent are inferior to this “named person”. Check out the link: [@: http://wholetruthmedia.com]
That is it for this wonderful Friday…Be Responsible for your actions, and be Safe.
Here are a few of my thoughts for today, Thursday, the 29th of August 2013….
— Yesterday was the 50th Anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King’s Jr’s “I Have a Dream” speech, it is pathetic how the organizers turned what should have been a wondrous event celebrating the greatness of America, the turning point in a very nasty part of our history, and the inspirational words of one of the greatest Americans into a petty political whine fest.
This dishonors the millions who supported the civil rights movement, the thousands who were beaten and jailed and the hundreds who were murdered, including but not at all limited to Dr. King.
Where was the only serving American of African descent on the US Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas (only the 2nd in the entire history of the Supreme Court)?
Where was the only serving American of African descent in the US Senate, Tim Scott (one of only eight, ever)?
Where was Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell the only two Secetary of State, who were of African descent?
I failed to see Dr. King’s own niece, Reverend Alveda King, I wonder why.
How many times was the name Travyon Martin mentioned as if he was some martyr who died for a greater cause instead of his lack of discipline, lack of proper role models as parents, and because he bought into a tragic victim-hood/thug mentality that Dr. King would have been horrified to see.
It truly breaks my heart to see what has become of the legacy of this great man, especially by so many who claim to have known him, they may have been around him, been related to him, even been his friends, but they did not know Dr. King’s heart.
— Where are the anti-war protesters? Where is Code Pink? President Obama is about to launch an attack against Syria (seemingly at the command of the Saudi King). If he does that then he has started the same number of wars as that ‘warmonger’ George W. Bush. Just saying.
— If you have a twitter account, you should check out Stacey Dash’s feed. She isn’t just another pretty face, but she has some serious thoughts and she has provoked more then her fair share of idiot haters. Yesterday she was tweeting MLK quotes, and, well the idiots came out of the woodwork or should I say out from under their rocks. So give her your support.
Today in History,
Dr Martin Luther King, Jr gave his “I Have a Dream” speech, this was and is the most important speech about Freedom in modern history. If you have not had the pleasure of watching or listening to it, please do.
If you have ever wanted start a petition? Want to make a change? Wanted to change a particular thing that the government does in a stupid way?
Here is your chance…
Start a petition,
Change the World…
ok well it is not that easy, but the point is there, if you want to make the idiots in the tower listen to us, the people in the street, this is the start, if they don’t listen here, we can expand our horizons.
I will post a link to some of the ones I find interesting. If you see one that catches your interest, be sure to post it up, here or on your sight, or even better, Both.
A few thoughts for today, Thursday the 15th of August 2013.
Have you heard about the
witch hunt persecution of the Missourian rodeo clown (seriously how dumb does that sentence sound? I mean people are upset because of what a clown said? Seriously? He’s a CLOWN. You know a CLOWN?).
Was this clown disrespectful of the president?
Yes. Yes he was.
Should he have been fired, and banned for life from the Missouri State Fair?
NO he is a CLOWN!! Seriously a clown.
I’m not going to sit here and remind everyone of all the disrespectful thing that other people have said about other presidents over the years, I don’t have to, this is America. We disrespect our presidents, our senators, our governors, basically anyone in power.
It’s what we do, it is as American as apple pie and football.
If you don’t like it, don’t elect a president, elect a ‘Dear Leader’, General Secretary, or whatever.
I for one will continue to make moderately amusing jokes about the president and anyone else in power who decides to act like an asshat.
It is my constitutional right, and I LOVE IT!
On a separate chain of thought, What is up with the police?
Is the cool thing to have an armored vehicle for your department even if you are the Mayberry PD?
Seriously, a couple of things here…
while I hate to tell anyone how to do their jobs…
here it goes…
if you are really worried about the safety of your officers,
then get your officers out of the office,
and out of their vehicles
and in the streets,
get to know the people in your neighborhoods,
let them get to know you,
break down that wall that separates the police from the citizen.
As it stands now,
you are just a person in a uniform that is not with them.
You are the ENEMY.
All the armor in the world won’t protect you from the unknown.
Nothing is as valuable as local knowledge,
knowing that old man Jones is disabled,
that the Johnson dog can’t see well at night,
Grandma Phillips is a heavy sleeper,
Mrs. Williams is the local busy body and knows everything about everyone,
the Wilson kid has light fingers,
the Addams boy likes to fight but is a good kid,
if you know the people the people will share their knowledge with you,
pre-informed is prepared
and preparation beats a lightly armored vehicle any day of the week.
Greetings Fellow Thinkers,
So many things to talk about, it is always hard to find one or two to write about, but I was reading a fascinating blog post and/or article [I’m not sure what is what, so…] over on The Resistance United, about 11 Liberal Rules for Racism in America, now I am sure that these rules pretty much apply for any country in the West.
It has always been my humble opinion that the same douchebags that persecuted ‘witches’ in times past, are the same (if not exactly at least in spirit) as the douchebags that are trying to persecute gun owners, conservatives, religious people (mostly Christians), and anti-statists today. [coming from a guy who doesn’t own a firearm, is not overly conservative, is not a Christian or particularly religious, and thinks the average person is so dumb that someone, anyone needs to take care of them, that is saying something].
So where was I, oh yes, Racism and America, a topic I have touched on many times. Is there racism in America, ABSOLUTELY!!
Why? I figure racism is all about insecurity, nothing more nothing less, if people are afraid someone else is inherently, better then them, of course they are going to hate that someone. DUH!
I don’t think that way, I don’t think that Asians are better at math, I don’t think that black guys are faster then me. I don’t think that academics are more enlightened then me. Go figure I’m conceited. 😀
Am I the best mathematician, fastest running dude, most enlightened chap…NOPE, not even close.
I also don’t think that one race has a monopoly on it.
My best NCO 1SG Hall, meanest NCO on the planet, EVER. But I’d follow her to hell and back, cuz I knew she’d never hang me out to dry
Best Leader, SFC Holmes, everything I did as a NCO, I’d ask myself what would SFC Holmes do? An American of African descent who grew up in the projects of Atlanta, who used to be a Black Panther, who showed a young man, the meaning of being an a Gentleman and a Soldier. The only man in the army who’d talk racism with me.
MSG Whittington, the epitome of a US Army NCO. Literally down to his salt and pepper hair. Kind of scary. Seriously.
There are many, many others that I learned from both Officers and NCOs, even lower enlisted. Freak I’m looking at you.
Seriously though, if your thought process is….I hate….
Just assume you are wrong.
hate is never the correct thing to do. I don’t even hate the ass-hates who hate me, I just feel sorry for them. I pray that they one day see the light, but I prepare myself for the possibility that they will try to come and cause me issues. Am I prepared?
For this week’s edition of Friday Freakout, I was undecided on what to write about, some many things going on, such as…
the ongoing clusterfuck that is the Benghazi incident,
the IRS intimidation scandal,
the NSA spying scandal (RumInt: 2 top Obama admin officials have fled US)(Be Advised: this information has not been able to be confirmed, as such it should be treated as of dubious value),
the Martin/Zimmerman thing,
and who can forget the wonderful new law fixing to take effect…Obama Care.
Can someone explain to me how this whole race thing works…because I am confused,
how is it that George Zimmerman is a white Hispanic, but President Obama is black? both have one white parent and one black/Hispanic parent.
Wouldn’t President Obama be a white black, or a white African-American?
Black trumps Hispanic?
Is there a list of where each race falls in order of importance?
Have we reverted back to the old “One-drop Rule” of times past?
I hope not, I think that a man or a woman should be judged on the content of their character as opposed to the color of their skin, Dare I dream the same dream, as Dr. King? Or is that not allowed because he is black, and I am not?
I have been followed in stores, stopped by the police (for no reason), stared down at, had nasty comments made to me, I view these things as an expression of our freedoms, albeit by ignorant douche bags, but still. Many times when I have engaged these people, I notice that their reasoning was bore of fear and ignorance, rather than hate. Once engaged these people usually came around to a new and more enlightened view, not because I am particularly gifted in speaking, but because truth speaks for itself.
It is a sad state of affairs that has led our country, a country where a core fundamental belief is that “All men are created equal…” to be arguing over race, almost 150 years after the abolition of slavery, a half a century after the civil rights movement led to lingering inequalities to be outlawed, so our country can become the country that we all dream of, where color, ethnicity, sex, religion, or any other superficial attributes are unimportant when we interact with our fellow citizens.
Do we still have work to do? ABSOLUTELY
but how the media and the politicos are going about it, is making racism worse, not better. We don’t need that, we don’t want that, hate is unacceptable in all of its forms, especially in legally sanctioned forms.
Here are some of my thoughts for today, Thursday 17 July 2013….
After some reflection, and make no mistake I am as just as tired of listening to statists and racists attempt to start issues with the Zimmerman/Martin incident as you are, but I feel it would be remiss to not state the obvious…
While I am not a lawyer, and while I do not think that Mr. Zimmerman broke the law, I firmly believe that he was perfectly within his rights to defend himself. Trayvon Martin was sitting astride him, pummeling his face (remember he had a broken nose and the back of his head was bloody and torn), Mr. Martin had no injuries except the bullet wound. Logic dictates that whether we like it or not, Mr. Zimmerman’s version was and is closer to ‘ground truth’ then any fantasy version fostered upon the public by people with an agenda.
Now think about you being in that position,
it is dark,
it is raining,
and a stranger is on top of you,
he is bigger than you,
stronger than you,
younger than you,
your pinned to the ground,
no escape possible,
beating your face in,
your nose, already broken,
your eyes, swollen and black,
the back of your head, already hurt and bleeding,
you don’t know what to do,
you are screaming for help,
no one has come,
maybe no one is coming,
you are not sure if you will live to see the morning…
what would you do?
No sane person, (not Eric Holder, not Revered Sharpton, not Stevie Wonder, not You, not me) would have allowed Trayvon to continue beating on him, that is illogical. No one will ever convince me, that they if they were in that position would do anything different. NO ONE. EVER.
If this is the first time that Attorney General Eric Holder has talked to his son about interacting with police and others, Child Protective Services should be investigating him, because that is straight child neglect. What kind of parent has not talked to their child about being respectful and courteous, aka polite?
I do want to congratulate Rolling Stone magazine, for becoming the latest subject for a boycott. Rolling Stone in their infinite wisdom, decided to do a cover with terrorist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, in the classic bad boy-heart throb pose. At best that is a poorly thought out marketing scheme, at worst, some pathetic appeal to being ‘cutting edge’ either way…FAIL.
If you are of the same mind, take a few minutes, say a prayer, for everyone else out there, then arm yourself with knowledge, and educate others. Knowledge is power.
A couple of thoughts rolling around my head this morning….
— Are statists rational? We all realize the benefits of government, that is not even in question, the question is and has always been (and no doubt will always remain) how much government. More is not better, the minimum amount of government is best, we know this through the study of history, the rulers who rule lightest generally rule best. Freedom breeds innovation and innovation breeds progress.
— Is atheism a religion? A federal court has decided that it is a religion. [Link]
— Does morality stem from the government or from religion and culture? While we all can recognize that we have a moral obligation to obey a law, does a law otherwise imply a moral obligation? Or do moral obligations imply that we should pass laws to enforce them? (More on this in a later post).
— Are all statists hypocrites? [Link] or do these people just think they are better than the average person?
— As we enter into the last week of March, if you have any recommendations for the Monthly Wolf Print Award, please let me know.
I leave you with this picture…of one of the most beautiful places in the world…Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia.
