I pay Half Attention, to Half of Everything, Half of the Time.

This is why I’m better equipped than Half of America to make a statement on this mornings Supreme Court Ruling on Gay Marraige.

This was Half a Victory.

If you’ve been around here for a while you already know that I oppose ‘Gay Marraige’ because I do not subscribe to the premise it is being argued upon.  And today’s ruling, based on a faulty premise, will only serve to cause more angst and division between individuals over the next decades.

First, let me say, today’s ruling is a half step forward…

…but we are all still blindfolded.

The Supreme Court stated unequivocally that the states must license marriage between homosexuals.

So what’s wrong with this and why might I oppose it?

NO ONE SHOULD BE CELEBRATING A SUPREME COURT RULING WHICH DEMANDS WE ALL MUST CONTINUE BEGGING THE STATE TO VALIDATE OUR RELATIONSHIPS!

Homosexuals in this country seem to think they have won a major victory…

In truth, none of us won anything today except the reinforcement that Government has ultimate say in what kind of relationships we have.  In other words, the Government has won a victory by retaining the Power to ‘Allow’ us, Gay/Straight/Purple/Green/Etc., to get married.

It’s none of the state’s damned business who I marry… or why.  I certainly shouldn’t be required to pay some bureaucrat to give me their approval!

It absolutely escapes me as how anyone can believe this is a win.

But then I remind myself we have moved so far away from the Supremacy of the Individual upon which this country was founded… so foreign does such a concept sound to our publicly educated population… so dangerous is such an idea to those who are in control and wish to continue to control all of us… forever…

… it all makes sense.

If half of us would make half an effort half the time…

We might quickly see how Government solidifying it’s ability to Force Individuals to bend at the knee is never a victory.

I’m off to get half Drunk…

You Should be Free to be a Crappy Bigot.

And I Should be Free to Point it Out.

Like a never-ending election season treadmill, out come the issues that divide us but never get solved…

Discrimination is a Big One.

Look Folks, In a Free World we must all have a right to Discriminate. And with that comes our Protected Right to Point Out those Crappy A-Holes so devoid of accomplishment that they must find Personal Characteristics none of us are Responsible for and Discriminate against us on that basis… so they can feel better about themselves.

Frankly, I want to know who these people are.

I Do Not want them hiding in the Shadows.  Do You?

I want to be able to craft my decision-making with full knowledge of Who these people are, and expose where these people work. This way I can avoid them… while suggesting to my friends that they might consider doing the same.

I would also promote News organizations doing their jobs again, and applying scrutiny to these people, and their businesses as well.

This would allow LOTS of folks to make informed decisions.

Instead, this problem suffers from ridiculous attempts to Legislate Behavior and results in an erosion of our individual rights as a whole, drip by drip.

Once you accept the premise that only ‘some’ freedoms are ‘allowable’, you’ve lost the Inalienable Right to All of Your Freedoms. And by default, control over you is gradually handed over to those in Power.

Once you have conceded your ‘rights’ come from Man and thus can be taken away by Man, then the race begins to become the Man in charge of handing them out and more importantly… taking them away.

This is our Reality, and it is how we are all Manipulated to do the bidding of, and send money to, People Who have No Business Running Things, let alone telling us what to do.  We promote our own march to Slavery, whether we realize it or not.  I’m guessing most of us fall into the ‘not’ category.

So…

Let’s A-Holes be A-Holes.

But Shine the Cleansing Light of the Sun upon Them…

And do yourself a favor, Stop looking to Government to solve this problem, because it can’t… and truth be told, the Fine Folks up there Don’t Really Want To Solve It anyway.

There is Power in Division.


Minority Rights!

One Must believe in Minority Rights!

There is no greater responsibility we all have than to protect the Minority…

If you agree with me then you Must also find yourself on the side of protecting the Individual, as it is he who is the Ultimate Minority.

This understanding means there cannot be special rights for Religious Groups, Racial Groups, Age Groups or Groups based on Gender.

It means that all Men are created equal.

It means all Crime is Hate Crime.

It means all men must have the same Inalienable Natural Right to Freedom and Liberty before the law.

It means that a person’s station in life does not afford them special consideration.

It means men cannot elevate themselves above the laws others must abide by.

It means anyone who opposes the Protection of Individual Liberty and Freedom is a Bigot.

It means the Only Rights are Individual Rights.

Only a perversion of the word Minority could mean anything else.

Tolerance

Definition of Tolerance (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • tol·er·ance
  • [ tóllərənss ]
  1. acceptance of different views: the acceptance of the differing views of other people, e.g. in religious or political matters, and fairness toward the people who hold these different views
  2. tolerating of somebody or something: the act of putting up with somebody or something irritating or otherwise unpleasant
  3. ability to endure hardship: the ability to put up with harsh or difficult conditions

I’ve held back jumping on the Duck Dynasty hates Gays bandwagon… because it’s nothing new and I don’t really care.

Until now.

Let me state my position on this latest example of Liberal Tolerance.

Phil Robertson has every right to openly state what he believes.  A&E has every right as a private company to “Fire” Phil Robertson because of what he openly states as his beliefs.  You have every right to Support Phil, or Support A&E.  You can turn A&E off… you can say mean things about Phil.  You can burn Phil’s Duck Calls… On and on and on.

The only, only, only aspect of this I find remotely interesting is the idea of Tolerance.  This episode is simply another, in a long line, of incidents where Liberals fail to tolerate speech they disagree with.  Phil may very well be an A-Hole.  But where exactly is the tolerance?

Liberals find it very important to remind the rest of us that they are the most Tolerant people in the room… at all times.  But if you only tolerate those you agree with then where exactly IS the tolerance?

This is a terrific example of the Left’s War on Words.

It is all part of controlling speech.  Because if you control speech you control the argument.

But what is amazing is that we are conditioned with regularity to accept such control.

We see this in everyday life.  Several examples we have grown to except, erroneously, are the words;

Gratuity, Charity and Voluntary.

Definition of Gratuity (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • gra·tu·i·ty
  • [ grə t ətee ]
  1. money given in appreciation: a small gift, usually of money, given to somebody such as a waiter as thanks for service given
Synonyms: tip · perquisite · perk · token · donation
If the definition of gratuity above is correct… then how can one be mandatory on parties of 6 or more, or have a minimum of 15% etc.?  Once it’s mandatory or has a requirement, it’s no longer a gratuity, it’s a fee.

Definition of Charity (n)

Bing Dictionary
  • char·i·ty
  • [ chárrətee ]
  1. organization providing charity: an organization that collects money and other voluntary contributions of help for people in need
  2. provision of help: the voluntary provision of money, materials, or help to people in need
  3. material help: money, materials, or help voluntarily given to people in need
Synonyms: aid · contributions · gifts · donations · help · assistance · offerings · handouts
If something is taken from you and given to someone else it is not charity.  It is theft.

Definition of Voluntary (adj)

Bing Dictionary
  • vol·un·tar·y
  • [ vóllən tèrree ]
  1. of free will: arising, acting, or resulting from somebody’s own choice or decision rather than because of external pressure or force
  2. without pay: performing, working, or done without financial reward
  3. using volunteers: composed of, functioning with or requiring volunteers

If something is voluntary it does not require Force by others.  In other words, you don’t voluntarily pay your taxes.  You pay your txes because you must.  If you don’t, you go to jail.  That’s Force.

Apparently “Tolerance” is going the way of “Voluntarily”, a word hardly heard and rarely understood.

It seems none of us ‘Public School Kids’ know what Free Will is.

I shouldn’t have to say this, but Words mean Things.  All of the above words have to do with your ability to say “No.”  So ask yourself, why would the Left want to change the meaning of, or remove, such words from our vocabulary?  Contrary to many people’s new definition of Tolerance, it does not mean finding only those things you agree with as protected speech.  In fact, it means exactly the opposite.

Buy a dictionary… use it… before all meaning is lost forever.


Sedation Vacation

When we are told that spending more money than we have is what we must do…

When being “color blind” requires us to identify our “color”…

When 40-year-old men touch our children at the airport it is called “security”…

When we see union’s destroy car companies we are told prolonging their existence is “saving” Detroit…

When facing a 16 Trillion dollar deficit and an economic meltdown a .0006% cut in spending is “draconian”…

When we are told to call illegal activity “immigration”…

When proving who you are in order to cast your vote is racist…

When getting good grades makes you “white”, not smart…

When it is considered noble to stand for certain groups having more rights than others…

When politicians forward ideas of oppression in the name of “fairness” and we’re expected to cheer…

When being Free means doing what we are told, always…

When good means bad, and bad means good…

Is it any wonder?

Is it any wonder that 1 in 10 of U.S. citizens legally take anti-anxiety drugs?

Is it any wonder that americans consume 80% of the worlds pain killers?

Is it any wonder that I drink 95% of the worlds vodka?

The U.S. could use a Sedation Vacation, I’m just afraid of what would happen if everyone sobered up at once.
