life begins

life begins when you have a thought of having sex
raking your eyes over someone’s body gets you arrested for assault

just imaging it makes it rape

if you give your niece a birthday present, you’re a pedophile

if you dream that you are driving a fancy sports car, you are automatically guilty of grand theft auto.

i think you can see where this is going. i think you know what and who this is aimed at. our society has gone stark raving mad, totally bonkers, and is now taking stupid pills for breakfast.

what happened to logic and reason? not only did the middle of the road disappear, but the entire road has vanished. come on folks! enough with this crap, already. there are way more important issues and situations in this world than to be running around yelling; “the sky is falling, the sky is falling…”. the goddamn sky isn’t falling. it never will. what is falling is the tolerance we had for one another back in the good old days. By the way, the good old days were generally conservative in every aspect of life.

what happened to being your brother’s keeper? either no one has brothers anymore, or we just forgot how to keep them. i find myself thinking: hey, i have my own stuff to worry about. how do you expect me to worry about anyone else’s stuff? being courteous, honest, humble, and such has gone around the bend on us? silly me, i thought it was all going to be different with our generation. don’t blame it on our parents. they played the game according to the rules. we benefitted from that to a great degree. the trouble is some of our wiring short-circuited along the way, and we turned out to be greedy, selfish, little children (and that’s as adults).

well to my parents, i apologize. to my children i apologize. and, to the world i can only offer my condolences, because we certainly are not leaving behind a legacy anyone would be proud of.

to the folks that insist politically correct thinking and action is the only way to go, i say; stuff it, zip it, get over it. i am done with this crap. i am returning to those good old days when a person could freely speak his/her mind,  have his/her own  convictions, openly fight for what they believe in. and, do it as a proud American, not some sniveling little brat that needs to go with the flow and have mommy wipe his/her snotty nose.

ps: i was thinking of writing this all in capital letters. then, i realized that some people take offense to that style of penmanship. therefore, there is only one capitalized word. hey, if e. e. cummings can get away with it, surely i can as well.

A little bit of sanity

A little bit of sanity in an ocean of the absurd. One of our wonderful Comedy Channel hosts, aka. the GOP Presidential Candidates, has realized that History makes a difference. Ron Paul gave me one of those moments when you sit back and say:  “Some one here gets it.”
He went and admitted that Dwight Eisenhower warned us all of the inherent dangers of the Military/Industrial Complex. He actually used those words; the same words I’ve been using since I started “blogging”. Leads me to wonder: “Is some one reading my stuff”?

Please don’t run off telling everyone that I’m a Ron Paul supporter. I most definitely am not. I do, however, adhere to some of his positions regarding the Department of Defense and their run-away budget. The money (taxpayer’s money) that we spend overseas is a disgrace and an insult to the people of this Nation.

Our international policing, our nation building, and our preponderance of spreading democracy has to stop. No body out there likes it. We can’t afford it. So, why the Hell are we continuing to do it?

If there is anything our Country does internally, or externally, that is, or may be, unconstitutional, this would be it. I would even go out on a limb and say that our Founding Fathers would have our current leaders drawn and quartered for actions such as these. We fought a Revolutionary War to free us from Colonialism. We certainly don’t have a right to turn around and practice Colonialism ourselves. It is immoral, and unjust, and it needs to end now.
