Thoughts

Everybody knows on here I do not like the GOP. Everybody knows I think there is something seriously wrong with their supporters mentally. Yes, I admit they used to be saner.

William F. Buckley was alright. He was not one of the batshit crazies we see polluting the television screens now who bask and praise their own madness. At least, Buckley thought there was something morally and mentally wrong with Ayn Rand and her ideas.

Is it true madness or is it a madness they create to lure in the stupid populace? This is the real question. Philosophical treatises could be written on this subject. ( perhaps they should be)

They did not used to be a bunch of tinfoil heads. The South is the worst when it comes to the GOP, though, there are crazy tinfoil heads everywhere who believe there are hidden messages from Satan bleeding through the television sets, computer screens and radios.

People like Pat Robertson and Alex Jones are key individuals responsible for turning ordinary adults into batches of Loony Toons.

Fox News is an entire network who should be held liable for mass lie production, which tilts Americans to madness — a madness throwing them away from their personal interests.

These people have not yet realized just because you cannot explain something does not mean it is a conspiracy. Often, there are simple reason for apparent odd phenomena. These people go crazy when they see triangles and single eyes.

Triangles are great stabilizers and the single eye has been a symbol since the dawn of time. It has been used to represent Horus, YWH, and knowledge.

Heck, many freak out every time they see the back of a dollar bill it seems. I would hate to exist in their minds. If they really believe what they profess, it must be a very scary place within their mental regions.

Yes, there are a few people who control loads of wealth. This is not a conspiracy. This is simple human greed — a greed which needs to be curbed through the closing of loopholes in the law.

Yes, there is an immigration problem. Yes, there are Islamic people who are terrorists. This fact does not mean you ship everyone who is not exactly legal out and ban all Muslims from entering the country.

I think the key item of note with our border problem is to say the American people should not be required to cater to someone not knowing English and the American people do not have to pay for any welfare or healthcare benefits for people who come to this country illegally. We should also have laws in place that penalize companies from hiring illegal immigrants.

This should be the end of what we implement. We do not need to hurt illegal immigrants. We do not need to have mass deportations. We do not need to build a giant Great Wall of America.

We should treat America like a club. American citizens are automatically members. In order to take advantage of the benefits of the club, you are first required to become a member through the process of becoming a citizen.

If their own communities want to help them, that is great. This does not need to be funded by American tax dollars, which should be going to support American citizens.

 

The Difficulty in Niche Finding

It is difficult to find a niche. People think “Oh It’s easy.” I disagree. It is not easy to find a niche if you are male and not into sports. If you are are a sports fan, then it is easy. If you are not a sports fan, are sympathetic to the feminist plight, and are not really a gamer, then the difficulty compounds.

Most magazines on store shelves are catered to women. This is because women remain the purchasing agent of the house. If they are not catered to women, the magazines are often a news or sports magazine. I grant there are a few variety male magazines, but there are not many – especially, compared to the variety of female magazines on store shelves.

I think it would be great to start up a male variety blog. It would be a positive one dedicated to the positive side of male empowerment. This is not sexist. Women have loads of female empowerment mags. They are often positive. Many of the male empowerment mags focus on the chauvinistic side of male empowerment.

So, I will likely start up a new blog dedicated to that subject. It will have a short story section, a section of an important contemporary male icon, a section of an important historic male icon, a section dedicated to new gadgets, a section dedication to an adventure of some sort outdoor or scholarly.

Essentially, it will be focused on building up the male ego in a positive rather than a negative way.

Something Clever

I insist it is always a pleasure to say something clever. True, it may be a bit haughty to say something naughty. I say it’s relieving if it’s not deceiving. I say a sly comment here or there may be dear. I concluded a little coy worded sass can be as graceful as a dance. I say swing of a swig of a little meandering down the lines of composed prose and make them laugh as you fill up the pages.

Gender Obsession

I consider myself to be a liberal. I consider myself sympathetic to the feminist cause. I do, however, find it strange certain women obsess about their being women.

Yes, I am glad they are fond of being a woman. Yes, I am for their equal rights. No, I do not think they should be treated beneath men.

I do, however, find it odd for praising oneself for being a woman and praising other women for being women.

I say this because having an appendage or not having an appendage between your legs says nothing about one’s cleverness, work ethic, or beauty.

Gender is meaningless. Race is meaningless. A person’s choice of religion is meaningless. ( if one does not force it upon others.)

Essentially, what matters is if a person behaves themselves.

She Waited for the Train ( Song)

She waited for the train

She was waiting for it to take her to the plane

Away she would fly away – oh so far way

Away she would fly – without and yet a lot to say

Tell me darling was it the things he said?

Tell me darling was it what your life had bred?

Tell me before you head your way

Tell me before you speed away

She said she had high hopes and gazed up to the sky

She said she had given up on this town’s hope and so it was time to say good by

Away she said – just like paper skippin down the sidewalk in the wind

Away she said- just like her father, as he took his car for a final spin

Tell me darling was it the things he said?

Tell me darling was it what your life had bred?

Tell me before you head your way

Tell me before you speed away.

She stepped onto the train

She gazed ahead  with her mind fixed upon her plane

Away she said. Looking to fill up the paper of her life.

Away she said. Looking and focused on her plight.

Tell me darling was it the things he said?

Tell me darling was it what your life had bred?

Tell me before you head your way

Tell me before you speed away.

Tell me darling was it the things he said?

Tell me darling was it what your life had bred?

Tell me before you head your way

Tell me before you speed away.

Disease, Ritual and Taboo

We have a germ theory of disease. We know what causes certain mental disorders. We know what causes decay.

Disease, mental disorder, and decay used to be explained by evil spirits. These evil spirits were called faeries or demons in the ancient world. This led to the creation of amulets to ward off these spirits. This led to sequences of prayers to produce the same result.

Many times, this keeping away or banishment of evil spirits required both an amulet and a set of prayers.

These demons were said to exist in wooded areas, ruins, in certain plants. They were said to be produced from certain types of sexual intercourse.

This led to certain rituals among certain tribes. This led to many of their taboos.

This production of evil spirits from certain areas, in certain plants and from certain modes of sexual intercourse is all considered bunk today.

So, let us think with modern minds of and throw off this medieval superstition and look to science. I am not saying there is not or is a God, but let us live with the knowledge we have gained through the years and throw off superstition.

If a certain ritual brings you a sense of comfort and communion, fine, however, to insist on the scientific accuracy that this taboo/ritual wards off evil spirits if people do not follow this procedure/taboo will spell doom on the country is absurd.

It is dangerous if one uses their influence in government force others to obey these ancient taboos/rituals because the consequence for nonadherence to these taboos contain no basis in reality.

Marriage is a Legal Construct

We, as a society, need to view marriage without emotion attached. We need to view it in a legal sense because marriage is essentially a legal construct.

Yes, there is the concept of marriage in Christianity but all religions have their own laws of marriage. We are a nation with a plurality of faiths. We are a nation with the concept of separation of church and state enshrined in our constitution.

So, the Christian notion should not be looked at when looking at the laws of marriage in a legal sense.

So, we must view marriage as a purely legal construct. This construct gives couples the right to visit their significant other on their death bead. This construct gives the other member of the relationship the right to inherit property upon the death of the other party. The construct also provides for special tax incentives. There are also penalties for breaching the marriage contract and provisions that must be adhered to if the couple is divorced.

This construct gives the other member of the relationship the right to inherit property upon the death of the other party. The construct also provides for special tax incentives. There are also penalties for breaching the marriage contract and provision that must be adhered to if the couple is divorced.

These laws and benefits are in place for married couples because they provide the framework to build, maintain and care for a family. It does not matter if they are a same-sex coup or a straight couple.
