Give us your money, especially if you disagree, or you’re a bigot

We have seen for years that the liberal left preaches tolerance and practices intolerance and hate. While they repeatedly tell us that the recent SCOTUS ruling is a win for love, and a win for “equal rights,” they attack anyone who dares not praise their “victory” no matter who they are.

So, now we’re moving on to the main focus for most people, money. It seems that a donor recently sent $10,000 to Girl Scouts of America, asking that the money not be used for camp scholarships for transgender girls, or for it to be returns. Naturally, the GSA chose to return it, rather than honor such a hateful request, while also making sure to publicize that this person “denied 500 girls the ability to go to camp.” Never mind that they could have honored the wish and sent 500 girls who aren’t trans to camp, never mind that they could have then used money that didn’t have any stipulations for the trans-girls, and never mind that they could have just lied as most organizations do today. No, they chose to return the money then paint the person who simply made a request as a “heartless beast who is bigoted against transgender girls.” Not to mention the almost impossible to read quotes from GSA where “every girl can join, and we don’t worry about if they are girls.”

Make no mistake, we are moving toward a world where anyone at all could walk into the restroom you are using, and you cannot complain. Ladies, this means a “woman” who is biologically male and only “identifies as a woman” so he can then be alone with women he wants to harm, can legally enter the women’s restroom, and even when you are attacked, you can’t complain about that law, as it’s for “equal rights.” We have already seen an attempt in Houston to all but imprison Pastors because they preach from the Bible, and the gay mayor didn’t like that they wouldn’t do what she told them to. What will happen if someone demands single person, unisex restrooms? Will they be “intolerant” because they don’t want to share a restroom wish a transgender person? What happens the first time a transgender 5th or 6th grader who is biologically male uses the girls restroom and a 1st grader doesn’t like it? Will that 6 year old be expelled for intolerance?

We MUST stand up for sanity and logic. If we cannot use the term gender to indicate if the person is biologically male or female, then use sex or just blatantly ask which set of reproductive organs the person currently has, and go from there. We also must push back against the idiocy of “you can’t complain about anything I do or you’re a hateful intolerant bigot.” That’s not how tolerance works, they know it, and they don’t care. Tolerance is literally just putting up with something. You tolerate a splinter in your hand only until you find tweezers so you can remove it. You tolerate a crying child at the supermarket only long enough to get what you came in for and get away. By the current liberal definition, you must keep the splinter forever, and must praise the child for “expressing themselves” while showing whatever the brat throwing a fit wants down upon them.

It’s very simple, and sadly, even as simple as this is, people still reject it in favor of “do what I demand, give me what I demand, and don’t complain or I’ll call you names.” Yes, I personally believe that homosexuality is not genetic, and thus, a choice, even if an unconscious choice. I believe it is wrong, as the only purpose of sexual intercourse is reproduction, and only in the last 50 or so years have we been able to have a woman get pregnant without needing to physically have sex with a man, save 1 case 2000 or so years ago, which isn’t the same thing. So, I believe it’s wrong, but I DO NOT HATE OR FEAR THOSE WHO ARE GAY! I get very upset when I am called homophobic, mostly due to the “la la la, I’m not listening” response when I try to logically and civilly discuss. Basically, those using the term behave like 4 year olds who call you names then stick their fingers in their ears so they can’t hear you, and thus, they get the last word, they’re right and they win.

In terms of jobs, I don’t care if you’re gay or not, black, white, yellow or pink with green stripes, I can if you can do the job, and if you will do the job. I get upset when I get to work and things aren’t done, making my day harder, and I’m not allowed to complain as I would be “singling out the XXXXX person and discriminating.” It is NOT discrimination to expect someone to do the job they are paid to do! It’s not racist that a black person didn’t get a job on the Fire Department, it means they didn’t pass the test. I took it 5 times before I passed, and even then, so many people did better than I did that I didn’t get picked, and I’d been a volunteer firefighter for 4+ years at that point!

So, you have a choice, use your brain and work to remove the toddler tantrums from society, so perhaps we can get back to work and not worry about hurting someone’s feelings, or you can ignore this and remain part of the problem. I personally don’t care, but should you pick option 2, know I won’t mince words and I will likely ensure you are told very bluntly that I feel you’re an idiot.

Your thoughts.

White House VS Christians, you read that right

It seems that SCOTUS forcing all states to recognize gay marriages isn’t enough. Nor is having US Judges help gay activists shut down private businesses, while they practice discrimination and hate all the way. Now the Vice President of the United States has come out and said that simply believing the Bible says what it says is “violating the rights of the LGBT community.” Yes, you read that right, VP Joe Biden has said that interpreting the Bible literally is violating rights. I’m sorry, I thought I had to actively silence someone to violate their right to speech, or restrain them and prevent them going to a rally to violate their freedom of assembly, but no, I was wrong. I simply need to think to do so.

I’m sorry VP Biden, you are completely wrong here, and I have to wonder what you’ll say next.

I’ve said this before, the first amendment does NOT mean you can’t have a statue with the 10 Commandments on the lawn of a public building, nor does it mean that students cannot pray before a football game. It means, simply, that Congress cannot establish a state religion, and cannot restrict the free exercise thereof, PERIOD!

Sadly, we now live in a world where students were taught that seeing a Bible was tantamount to being dragged to church and forcibly baptized, not simply viewing a book. A world where my praying of my meal is “forcing my views on others,” and daring to wish someone a Merry Christmas is forcing them to abandon all they believe.

Even more upsetting is knowing it will get worse. We have seen what happens when regimes are out of control. We’ve seen them pander to one group to the detriment of others, until they must silence all dissent. I just wonder what will happen when that day comes. Will the LGBT community be shocked that the government that “bravely protected their rights turned on them?” Or will they tuck tail and go meekly?

Two for tonight

First up is some news on the gay marriage front. It seems that fashion icons Dolce and Gabbana didn’t get the memo about everyone towing the party line and praising the recent decision from the US Supreme Court. The two men, both gay, openly criticize not only gay marriage, but the idea of children being raised outside the traditional nuclear family.

Naturally, the homosexual community spoke favorably about two of their own embracing their own right to think for themselves, right? Wrong, these two were lambasted and vilified for “daring to criticize gay marriage” with Elton John even going so far as to say he will never again wear anything of theirs, and calling for a boycott.

I can’t help but wonder what would happen were Dolce and Gabbana to completely blacklist E.J. from their products? While he’s the one avoiding them, it’s “fighting against intolerance” but if they were to tell him he is not allowed to ever own anything of theirs again, I just know he would “demand they give him the same right as any other customer” maybe even going far as to sue for “discrimination.” I’m also reminded, in this line of thought, of a village in Austria which in 2005 was considering removing Arnold Schwarzenegger’s name from a stadium due to an execution (capitol punishment being illegal in Europe) until he beat them to the punch, requesting his name be removed. Once he asked that it be done, the mayor quickly began asking that the then Governor of California reconsider. So, once again, if it’s their idea, it’s great. If it’s something the person they now hate wants done, that person must “show tolerance by doing exactly what they demand” right?

The second story is a bit simpler. It seems a father took his daughter to have a tooth pulled, but was not allowed in the room with her. When he heard her SCREAM he barged in to find her restrained with a “papoose board.” Yes, a father was removed from his child’s presence against his will, only to find that child restrained as if she was a criminal! Naturally, the AAPD (American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry) maintains that this is a last resort and should never be used without parental consent, so of course, the father is lying, his little girl was a monster and the “poor vilified dentist” was just doing his job, right? Of course, we’ve never had anything go wrong when parents are not allowed to even watch their child alone with another adult. Personally, I’d like to see this dentist lose his license to practice, be unable to get any job in any medical field ever again, and be investigated as to what else he used the papoose board for, but that would just be “going on a witch hunt” wouldn’t it? After all, there’s nothing to see here, pay no attention to the man behind the curtain……….

So, your thoughts?

This is completely unacceptable!

We have seen, in just the last year, protests and riots over “racism” when a Police Officer is forced to use any form of force against a black citizen, as long as the officer is white. Note, that in the case in New York, where a man died due to being restrained, the fact that he was resisting, was much larger than the officers, and the fact that the on scene supervisor was black and didn’t stop it, were all ignored. Yet, something like this is completely ignored in the media, and by the infamous race baiters, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Warning, do not watch the video if you are disturbed by violence, or don’t want to see a small child fall on her head on concrete.

Yes, that’s correct. The white woman, presumably the child’s mother, was holding the child and sitting down, when brutally pulled by the hair off the bench, which resulted in her DROPPING THE CHILD TO THE CONCRETE, and the child landed on her head. You can bet had a white woman slapped a black man or woman, in response to an attack, she’d be labeled racist and in jail, but this black teen forced a white woman to drop a child, which could have KILLED THE CHILD, and nothing is said.

I’m sorry, but I’m not sorry if this offends you, but I am appalled at where my country is now. I grew up in a small town in Texas, and trust me, the history of this area pre-Civil War, during and after Reconstruction, even as little as 60 years ago is what is referred to when the media wants to show racism. It happened, and it can’t be changed. But, why does that mean we can’t go after thugs who almost killed a child with their actions? Why are we vilified when we tell people that “hands up don’t shoot” makes you look like an idiot? Why are we treated as demons for saying something as true as ALL Lives Matter? The answer, the media wants ratings, and that sells. The current crop of politicians know that to get votes, they must appeal to people, and telling a group of people who destroyed their city when the verdict wasn’t what they wanted that they are all now criminals would lose votes.

I’ve asked this before and I’ve answered it before. How do we fix the issue? And the answer is as simple now as ever, stop the lunacy. Enforce laws equally, and report equally. Show these thugs on national TV, and ensure they spend a lot of time in jail. Stop with the idiocy of “hate crimes,” because all crime is motivated by some form of hate. Had this been an issue of a black woman dropping her child when a white teen pulled her to the ground, the teen would already be in jail to keep them alive! I want to believe we are not headed to hell in a hand cart, but we are. I also firmly believe there will come a day when we are told, though I don’t know by who, that white people cannot ever cause the death of a black person, even in self defense, because that’s racist. We will reach a point where video will be shown in court of a white person, on the ground, surrounded by black thug attackers, and when that video shows the VICTIM defending their life, that will result in the VICTIM being sent to jail for “murder” or some such. We will see a day when we will be told that if a black person wants your car, you are required to give it to them, because it’s “racist” to not do so.

It’s getting closer when you have idiots who can go up to people and take their phone (which we all know most phones are $300 or more) then when the person gets upset, they scream “it was a prank” and suddenly the person who rightly believed their phone was just stolen is not allowed to be angry. We’ve seen idiots dressed as clowns akin to Pennywise in IT running at people with what I assume are fake knives, then they get upset when one of the people they want to “prank” punches them or draws a weapon. They ignore than the “racist” was defending children, or reacting to what they saw as masked people running at them with a knife. They firmly believe they can say “it’s a prank” and that excuses their actions.

Only when we get to a point where none of this idiocy is tolerated, where it doesn’t matter if you “pulled the racist white woman who disrespected you,” when thugs and idiots are forced to live the consequences of their actions we will once again have a nation to be proud of. It starts with us telling our elected leaders that WE elected them, and we can just as easily not re-elect them. That we want them to stand for everyone, not the group screaming that they’re being mistreated. Police and Fire entrance exams aren’t racist, they’re tough due to the job being tough. If you can’t pass the exam, STUDY HARDER AND TAKE IT AGAIN! But sadly, this isn’t the world we have any more. We have a world where people are given handouts because they say it’s racist not to, and where victims are told they can’t do anything to their attacker, because it’s “racist.”

I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it

Virtually ALL crime is motivated by hate. Yes, there are those who steal to feed their family, and many of those only resort to stealing as a last resort, but those are in the vast minority of criminals. Sadly, we live in a world where certain people, if they are attacked, are seen as more of a victim than others. Just recently, Dylann Storm Roof shot and killed nine people in the basement of a Church, which is horrific on it’s own, but because Roof is white and the victims are black, this is a “hate crime” and carries heavier penalties than had the victims been white and the shooter black.

We saw in Ferguson and in so many other cases, countless excuses made from poor economic situations, to discrimination meaning they can’t find a good job, or just feeling that the world hated them because of their skin, when crimes are committed. We have also seen Police officials all but tarred and feathered when they respond against these suspects, including an officer who had one (Michael Brown) attempt to take his weapon from him, forced to leave the state after death threats were made, due only to his acting to defend his life. What would have happened had he not acted? What if Brown had gotten the pistol and shot the officer, then killed someone else? Would the family have sat idle while Brown was tried and convicted? No, they likely would have been screaming that the Officer should have done more to stop their baby before he hurt someone, and it’s the Officer’s fault that their poor relative has to live with what he’s done.

Well, I’m sorry, but this has to stop. Roof killed, that’s it, and the act of taking a human life when not in self defense or defense of others, should be enough to warrant the harshest punishment possible. I live in Texas and fully support that if you are convicted of murder, you can face being put to death! I don’t care if you’re white and kill someone who isn’t, if you’re black and kill someone who isn’t, or if you’re pink with orange stripes and kill someone who is the same! If you murder another human, that is, for me, enough for you to be put to death! Only when we begin demanding our leaders tell us why some lives are worth more than others, based only on their race, will we start the path back to a strong society. I fully agree that what Roof did has no place in civilized society, and that means people murdering others, I don’t care what race any of them are! We need to hold our elected leaders responsible for fomenting a society where one entire segment has been told their lives matter more, so anything they feel is done to wrong them becomes a hate crime or racism.

Finally, to answer the President’s comment that the ready availability of guns is a problem, that’s not what we need to address here. I can guarantee that making guns illegal will only make things worse! When you disarm those who do not break the law, you put them in danger. While I will agree that there are some who obtain their weapons legally, then use them illegally, these are the minority. Gangbangers and thugs buy theirs from the back of a car, the slug that shot up Sandy Hook stole his from a relative. I’d be willing to bet the weapon used by Roof wasn’t his, or at least wasn’t purchased by him. So, unless there’s a magic switch that will first make every single firearm on the planet vanish, and also remove all knowledge of how to build them and how to make ammunition, then making it harder for law abiding citizens to purchase them only disarms those who, honestly, need to be able to defend themselves more today than ever.

Two for today’s you have to be kidding file

First is this story from Mobile. It seems that Aldric White attempted to rob a Family Dollar and was shot by a customer as he had another man on the ground with a pistol to his head. Let me say this again, White had his weapon to a man’s head, but was shot instead of shooting that man. I realize this is almost two years old, but it still shows the state we’re in today. White’s family has actually said the other customer should have DONE NOTHING! They undoubtedly would be attacking the Police for racism had White MURDERED that employee and then been arrested, but now they have a private citizen who defended someone to attack.

Next is this story from South Carolina, where two people came in to rob a Waffle House, and when one of them pointed his weapon at someone, they drew and fired DEFENDING THEMSELF, but the family is planning legal action against this would be murder victim for shooting the person trying to kill him.

We’ve also seen the lunacy in Missouri where people DESTROYED THEIR OWN TOWN in reaction to Michael Brown and the officer who fired rather than let Brown get his weapon (the wounds show he was not fleeing, as they entered the chest first.) This is, sadly, the world we now live in. A world where, if you are attacked by a “minority” you either defend yourself and get sued or worse due to your “racist attack on a poor minority” or you die.

I’m saddened by any loss of life, but given the choice between someone who has clearly threatened my life or someone’s life in my presence or the person who was threatened, I will act, and I will act to stop them, period! Why is it, then, that this is evil, but Brown robbing a store and going for a cop’s gun is not? Why is it evil that Aldric White was shot while committing armed robbery but not evil for him to do so? Why is it evil for someone to defend a store clerk, but not evil to put a gun to said clerk’s head? If you listen to the media and those screaming, like Sharpton or Jackson, it’s because we’re all racist and those “poor misunderstood teens” were innocent and gunned down by hateful people, thus ignoring their criminal behavior.

Only when we wake up and start telling families of criminals they cannot sue their relative’s victims, they cannot sue someone for defending their own life or someone else’s life, that the actions of a thug have consequences they can’t change because they don’t like them, will we get back to a country that actually resembles the America of only 20 years ago. Do I think we’ll get there? Not in my lifetime, sadly, but I know I won’t be a victim, and when the day comes I have to defend myself or someone else, you can bet I’ll be tried for murder like Zimmerman, attacked for my “racism” when acquitted and sued civilly for “pain and suffering” due to my actions, but you can also bet I won’t back down.

Open carry coming to TX

Video Link

OK, before anyone starts screaming that we’re back in the old west, with everyone carrying whatever they want and gun fights in the streets, please watch the video. Yes, the attorney shown works for Texas Law Shield, a firm that specializes in defending their members in cases involving weapons, but they are still attorneys and point out several key points.

First, you must be licensed! I hold my CHL, and I am allowed to carry my weapon in many places, but not everywhere. My license, as of 1/1/16, will simply become a handgun license. I am researching if concealed carry will be affected, or if anyone with a license can carry openly or concealed. This does not remove the restrictions on CHL holders for locations either. The 30.06 law is still there, and 30.07 will address open carry.

Next, I can only carry a handgun and only in a belt or shoulder holster. I cannot walk the streets with an AR-15 on my shoulder or a shotgun slung on my back, period.

The implications for interacting with the Police are also addressed. There were amendments proposed that would make it so a Police Officer could not detain someone, or ask for their ID/License, solely on the fact that the person is openly carrying a weapon, both were defeated. I support that, as I don’t want just anyone able to carry and not be questioned. I am not a criminal, and have no record, so if I am asked for my ID, I will provide it, and I will obey all laws. If a Police Officer steps over the line, I will comply and call my lawyers, it’s that simple.

The crux of the matter is that there are 4 groups in this fight. The first simply doesn’t care, and won’t do more than watch. The second is my group, law abiding citizens who may or may not take advantage of this. I doubt I’ll openly carry much if at all, but will stay with my concealed option. Group three are the idiots trying to “make a point” by walking around with AR-15’s and the like, then getting upset when even questioned. I’d not be shocked to find out that group four, the liberals trying to ban all guns, had a hand in getting them to do this. Group three makes people like me look bad. To date, I have been openly visible with my handgun on my property (we have predators here, and they can’t all be scared away by noise), at the range, or when taking it for service or to the range.

Group four are the worst in my book. Not only do they actively shout that guns are the evil, not the people who use them, but they do not allow dissent. They actively work to undermine logic, as I can use a gun, rock, knife, baseball bat or my bare hands, to commit violence against another. They don’t want to hear it, because it shows that anything can be a weapon, and they’ve got a hard on for guns and anyone who disagrees with them is instantly a murderous psychopath who should be put away or put down. To achieve their goals, they not only lie and shout down anyone who doesn’t praise their intelligence, but they work to make people like me, who own firearms but use them responsibly and legally, look bad by encouraging the idiots among us to carry an AR-15 openly, and to then argue with police that “the second amendment is my license, you can’t stop me” or worse.

So, what do you think?
