Rare Political Rant
"Never wrestle with a pig; you both get dirty but the pig enjoys it."
I don't normally talk about political or social issues on my blog because in general the elites who have access to this technology tend to think I'm a Neanderthal because of my less than progressive attitudes about some things. I used to be a leftist commie pinko fag but I grew up and noticed that not everything they taught us in college was really true or practical in the real world. Shocking, I know, but there it is. So my experiences have pushed me right to the center politically. Deal with it. I know I'm not the only one.
The issue: Gun control. You can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead fingers. The constitution guarentees us the right to keep and bear arms but you couldn't guess that in NY. Sorry, but I don't give two shits about your mommy state "what about the children" crap. Teach them to shoot. They might need to overthrow their facist goverment some day. Quit it.
The issue: reparations for slavery. I never owned a slave. No one in my family ever owned a slave and in fact a large number of my relatives fought with the union to free the slaves. How on Earth does that make me liable for reparations to anyone? It's not possible to administrate such a thing fairly even if it were a good idea, which it ain't. Quit it.
The issue: politically correct race names are an oxymoron. African-American, Irish American... Horse Hockey! If you were born in this country you're an American. Period; paragraph. I don't give a crap where your ancestors were from, YOU are an American and your race is unimportant. I'm a blue-eyed, olive skinned Irish and French American with native American and Spanish royal blood. That and $2 will get me on the subway just like anyone else. Quit it.
The issue: religious zealotry is dangerous to society at large and needs to be exterminated. If your God tells you that you must kill or enslave those who believe something different than you that makes you a menace to society. You need to be put down like a rabid dog. I don't care what flavor you are. You must die for the good of mankind. All of you. I'm not sorry. Quit it.
The issue: so called "gender norming" - Men and women are different. It's a fact. Get over it. Neither sex is "better" or "worse" than the other. We both have our strengths and weaknesses and we are designed (if there is such a thing) to complement one another. Making everything in the world gender non-specific is not only annoying and unnecessary but downright counter-productive. For example, just because some people think women should be fighting on the battlefield in a war doesn't make it a good idea. Quit it.
How come every bar can be made to be non-smoking? How come every bar can be made to have handicapped access? How come every bar can be made to have a gender neutral bathroom? How come every bar can be made to hire a certain number of ? What happened to personal freedom? You want any of those things? Great! I'm sure you'll have a clientelle, but you shouldn't be forced to do these things by governmental regulation. It's intrusive, authoritarian and un-American. Quit it. Some of my faithful readers may be appalled at these sentiments but they're mine and I'll own up to them. If you want to disagree in the comments feel free but please keep it civil. That's the problem with discourse today. No one can talk about anything without shouting and name calling. You got a beef? Fine, let's have it but leave my mother out of it or I'll shoot you.
