THE ANGER BUILDS

December 12, 2015

The Black Liberation Collective makes demands on colleges and universities that are as utterly ridiculous as Obama’s strategy for eliminating ISIS. They want free tuition for black students, more black professors and administrators and mandatory gender/race/ethnicity studies. None of their dictates will do a thing to improve education for anybody including blacks.

Ivy leaguers want speech prohibited if it could in any way offend any one. Muslims claim religious discrimination after radical Islamists take the lives of innocents. People on government stipends clamor for more money to get ahead of inflation in a failing economy. Illegal aliens demand and receive all the rights and privileges of citizens. Workers with minimum intellect, education, skill and value demand more money but choose not to upgrade their usefulness to employers. Receiving wages commensurate with value is no longer an option for them. Blacks accept that white privilege holds them back so they tend not to try to better themselves. Instead, they congregate in large cities and kill one another and the police who are there to protect the lawful citizens and others. And President Obama is promoting the ill will with his words and deeds.

Our children are arrested for playing like the raiders of the future or the cowboys of old because they point fingers and say bang or zzzaapp. They are subjected to arrest and detainment for showing affection on school grounds. Some are labeled sexual predators as young as five and six.

The Attorney General sends the mixed message, “if you see something, say something” however, if we feel you are guilty of profiling or racial, religious, or ethnic bigotry you may become a target of investigation yourself.

This administration is fomenting dissension among every sect, group or fragment of society. It is an effort to break down the society so that it can be rebuilt from the ground up with only two classes. This is what Karl Marx tried to do in the mid to latter 19th century. Our current Narcissist-In-Chief believes he is the one who can successfully direct and accomplish the perfect melding of social engineering, economic equality and central oversight. Thus far, he is being allowed to do one fine job of it.

Unfortunately, he may well be right. No despot; not Marx nor Stalin nor Lenin nor Mussolini, had the forethought of politically correct speech to capture the minds of their minions. Political speech was curtailed under them, but otherwise aggregate speech was allowed. Political correctness is a way of controlling not only the speech of the proles, it is a way of softening their minds to readily accept the otherwise unacceptable. If it cannot be defined as bad, it must be accepted as reasonable.

Anger builds from the bottom up as the middle-class vanishes. The government is not only complicit in instigating the dissension in many ways it is exacerbating it. We can only look forward to more “man caused disasters” not only from radical Islamic extremists, but from the disenfranchised and exasperated masses within.

ASSAULT WEAPONS

December 10, 2015

All this talk from the gun-grabbing left about assault weapons has taken its toll on my senses. From the beginning the argument is flawed. The terms used are flawed and the premise is flawed. Assault weapons? The label sounds so menacingly salacious in itself that certainly something must be done immediately. So let’s break down the emotion invoking term into its various parts and see how that works.

According to the dictionary, an assault is a sudden or violent attack and a weapon is anything used against an opponent, adversary, or victim. Given those definitions, if a person advances on another with physical aggression and attempts to blind an adversary with the ballpoint pen, he or she has used an assault weapon. We must ban all pens immediately or at least register any writer in possession of the potential maiming tool!

Mike Tyson bit the ear of Evander Hollyfield during a fight in 1997. Should all teeth be banned as assault weapons?

Using the dictionary definition of the combined term: an assault weapon is a military rifle capable of both automatic and semiautomatic fire, utilizing an intermediate-power cartridge. None of the mass murderers yet recorded, that my research can identify, have used a weapon capable of automatic fire. Thus, by dictionary definition, no “assault weapon” has yet been used.

Not only that, but the weapons used are always referred to as high powered rifles. The most common weapon used in these killings is the AR-15. It uses a .223 caliber bullet.

Assault weapons (again, by definition) use intermediate-power cartridges. The .223 caliber and its cousin the 5.56 NATO rounds which are most commonly used in these attacks are both considered intermediate-power cartridges. Thus, another contrived falsehood is the naming of weapons and projectiles for the specific purpose of depriving U.S. citizens of our 2nd amendment right.

I’m offended by the blatant and intentional misuse of terms. I must go to my safe place to recover now.

ALL INCLUSIVE, ALL ACCEPTING

December 8, 2015

The institutions that used to help our youth learn to live in society are now teaching them to be victims of that society. Anything can incite victim hood. What was normal conversation just a few years ago, an exchange of ideas, is now considered by some to be so revolting that they must run away from the initiator. Trigger words that are known only to a few can be so insulting that police must intervene. Just saying “people of color” immediately makes a bigot out of those uttering the phrase and a casualty of the aural recipient.

“You look nice today” causes the over analytic societal specimens to feel they might not have looked their best yesterday. If said by a man to a woman or vice versa, it could be interpreted as a sexual advance. When that is the case, the one offering the compliment might be placed on a list of sexual predators and denied future employment.

Liberals want so much to be victims that they create situations for which they can whine. Creating “safe places” in colleges where they can banter among themselves without having to hear reasoned dissenting opinion or opposing facts are just some ways to avoid the reality of life. Invading the safe space with words or gestures grants them the right to be offended. And offending one of the easily upset might be as simple as wearing a certain color.

Red and green are out for some whinies at certain colleges and universities. Inclusivity mandates that students not wear colors previously identified with Christmas because some (1) person may feel left out. Perhaps we’d better change the tail lights on our cars for the rest of the year to keep some overprotected wuss from seeing the antagonizing hue.

If you’re going to present a color, you must show a rainbow as well. That’s the only way to be color comprehensive and diverse. Still, you may risk affronting a mauve or chartreuse lover. Don’t worry though, they’ll let you know before retreating to a safe place.

You might be hauled off in cuffs or at least detained for several hours simply for uttering Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah if there is an atheist, Buddhist or Muslim in the immediate area. The greetings do not include them.

Apparently, festively decorated trees can cause today’s youth to go into convulsions at this time of year as well. Garland, mangers, wreathes and sleigh bells or the mention of God will send some of the milksops to the psychiatrist office for multiple hour-long sessions and a prescription for heavy duty medication to make them feel all wonderful again.

Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and Merry Christmas to my Christian friends. All others please accept my open greeting for wellness, longevity and the opportunity to celebrate as you wish. I certainly hope I have offended no one and that I was able to include everyone. Otherwise, I would just feel so very, very bad I would have to take a handful of mind altering synthetic pharmaceuticals and cower in a closet until I felt better about myself.

LIFE IN THE WEEDS

December 4, 2015

Some people say a fetus is not viable because it cannot survive without its host. They want taxpayers to fund on-request abortions for women who refused to heed caution when having sex. They seem to be the very same people mandating that taxpayers fund adults who lack the will or ability to provide for themselves; the adults who need a host to survive. When will the government quit making the working few pay for the irresponsible?

Why, when a child shows higher than “normal” brain or physical activity, shows boredom and can’t sit quietly in mundane classes, do we suppress their potential with neuro-psychoactive drugs rather than offering them a more stimulating environment?

After a person of deranged mind chooses a gun-free zone to create chaos and take lives, why do some people insist that there be more gun-free zones? Why do those people insist that fewer sane people have the opportunity to return fire and save lives with their own weapon?

According to the P.C. police, we can no longer refer to parents as mother and father. They mandate that we refer to parent 1 and parent 2. Won’t this cause many parents to feel “second class”? I thought all couples and all partners (gay, straight, multi-alternate) were supposed to be treated equally. Who’s to be #1? Does the numeric order change with time? Is the ranking based on employment status, dominant or submissive, size, weight or is it simply a random choice? What happens if you mistakenly refer to parent #1 as #2, are you then a parentphobe? It’s just impossible to constantly be politically correct.

How is it that the youth and young adults who must take prescribed psychoactive pharmaceuticals to make them more “normal” seem to be the ones who commit suicide, ram their car into large groups of people or otherwise murder large numbers of innocents? Who should be held responsible for the activity, the person, the car, the gun or the psychiatrist?

The highly politicized DOJ recently found there was no criminal wrong doing or targeting of conservatives by the IRS or former director of Exempt Organizations, Lois Lerner. If that’s the case, if she is truly not guilty of any wrongdoing, why did she fear incriminating herself when she appeared before a congressional investigative committee?

In many states a person can vote, even if not registered, simply by producing a gas or electric bill at the polls with their claimed name on it. In California, and many other states, felons, foreign nationals and illegal aliens can choose the local, state and national representatives simply by applying for a driver license. In some cities and counties they can even become elected representatives. Could Charles Manson govern California from his cell if he got enough votes?

When a person is hired as a checker at a grocery market, how is it that she or he can’t be fired for not doing their job? If a customer presents bacon, pork chops, ham or alcohol to be scanned for price, and the checker refuses to handle the meat or drink, wouldn’t that disqualify him or her from the position for failing to do the job? Likewise for the taxi driver who refuses to pick up a disabled person with a service dog.
