Everyone is equal, minorities and women are more equal

George Orwell almost got it right. In his book, Animal Farm, the pigs got to a point where they were “more equal” than the other animals, simply because they “ran things” and “things would fall apart without them.” Well, while this has happened before, and likely will again, we are now moving toward a society where it’s not that they’re in charge, but that they’re not white, or not male, that makes them “more equal” than everyone who is a white male. I find it amazing that not only is this being all but ignored as far as discrimination, racism and sexism is concerned, as the media can’t shut up when it’s the other way, but that the idiots actually believe that only a white person can be racist and only a male can be sexist. Not only would you be laughed at or attacked for suggesting that women can be sexist or non-whites can be racist, I’ve actually see a comment to the tune of “how cute, you still believe the dictionary has definitions of words.” Yes, you read that right, I have seen an argument where someone actually said that the dictionary definition of racism is incorrect, and when asked why, they said “because that’s how it is.” This is where we’ve come to, a society where because women WANT it to be a certain way, we’re expected to make it that way. The idiots scream about equality, then also want to be treated special by men. Or, as actually happened to me, they will start screaming that they “don’t need a man to hold a door for them” (I was actually holding it for several people, men and women,) only to then scream about how rude you are if you close the door so they can do it themself. Well, I’m tired of it, and I’m tired of it being shoved down my throat from all directions. Look at the Superbowl commercials if you want more proof.

Always put out a commercial where they show both men and women (teens mostly or very young adults) perpetuate the stereotype of running like a girl, throwing like a girl, and fighting like a girl. They then go on to show young girls, simply running, throwing and so on. A young boy is asked if by showing the stereotype, if he just insulted his sister, showing that the point of the commercial is that we shouldn’t teach that boys and girls are different. Sorry to say, THEY ARE! I’m sorry, despite a VERY small percentage of women on the planet, men are physically bigger and stronger, while women are (mostly) better at nuturing jobs such as nurse or teacher. It’s just the way it is. I’ve seen women do things that, physically, I’d have a hard time doing, and I’ve had male nurses and teachers, but those are exceptions, not the rule. This doesn’t mean we should make fun, or not respect each other. Just because I’m a foot taller and able to lift more in a dead lift from the ground, doesn’t make me a “better person,” it means I’m physically stronger and larger, that’s it. Why do we need this “don’t say this or that” to take priority over math, science, history, and so on? Simply, because we are now being forced to do so, because a small portion of the population want us to.

Moving to another example, on the opposite end of the spectrum, we have T-Mobile’s wi-fi calling commercial.

Right up to the end, this was a somewhat chuckleworthy commercial simply showing two celebrities competing over who could wi-fi call from the most remote bit of their house. At the end, though, Silverman hands the child to the parents and says “sorry it’s a boy.” Now, I’m sure we’ll soon be told she only mean sorry she’d not paid attention to them, or “sorry, I got distracted,” but having watched her “comedy” and such, I have a hard time with that. Add to this, she didn’t pause, so it wasn’t “sorry, it’s about” as if “sorry, I should have done this sooner” but rather “sorry it’s about” as if the parents should be upset they have a son. Why is it that today we are inundated with “don’t say this” or “you can’t say that” when it would be “offensive” to females, but no one cares about verbalizing anything up to out right hatred for males? The current push for “equality” is no different than it was when it started, it’s a push for supremacy. There are many sub groups, from the mild who simply want the right to say what they want to and also to censor others, to the extreme who support forced castration of all males, after they gather a sperm sample to use for artificial insemination (yes, there are people who support that,) and no one cares. But, let a male say something completely in jest and the world explodes! Plain and simple, men and women ARE DIFFERENT! I am physically stronger and larger than most of the women I know, so by default, I can lift more than them, and perform strenuous physical activity longer than them. On the flip side, women are generally more nurturing and caring, so tend to do well in careers such as medicine or education. This is not the rule though. I’ve had male teachers, been seen by male nurses, and seen women perform physical acts that made me wonder if they weren’t a robot.

You want equality and tolerance, that’s fine, but you can’t demand others tolerate everything from you, while trying to keep them from saying anything you don’t want them to. Remember, it’s Liberty and Justice for ALL, not only certain groups.

Welcome to the new world of business

It seems that, recently, Hershey filed a lawsuit due to international candy, some of them at least, having extremely similar packaging/names. This story actually has an image of the British candy, where two of them are almost copies of Hershey brand candies. As a part of this, the story also points out that British candy will no longer be imported to the US, but this is NOT about “squashing competition” but rather, it’s about not importing candy that VIOLATES COPYRIGHT LAW! Let me put it a bit more clearly. You create a product named World’s Best Chocolate Bar, with a specific design on the wrapper. Later, you find a product made in another country with the same design/colors, and named World’s Best Chocolate. You then push to not have it imported, so that your consumers are not confused by the chocolate that mimics yours. Why are you the bad guy? That’s exactly what happened here, as you can see in the image in the story that there are British candies named Maltesers (as opposed to Malteser), KitKat (not even trying now), or Toffee Crisp using a font that is very similar to what’s used for the Reese’s candy bar.

When did the world get to a point where protecting your copyrighted brands is bad? Why are we expected to let anyone do whatever they want, rather than standing up for what is our? I’ll tell you, when students were no longer taught right from wrong, it started. When they were taught that simply trying out for a team means you got on the team, it got worse. When students saw everyone getting a ribbon, and no one being marked as better than others in a competition, it was almost done. But when the idiocy got to a point where you actually have people disqualified from a contest because they win too often, or students being allowed to not study, then successfully say they failed because the teacher hates them, rather than them being lazy, it was over. We now live in a world where we are expected to let others have our stuff, let them do whatever they want with our ideas, and not complain. Personally? I’m tired of it, and I say we start calling out the idiots who demonize a company for doing exactly what they would do if they were in Hershey’s place. I plan to keep buying Hershey products, even if just to spite the idiots who feel anyone should be able to use any name they want and steal ideas that are protected.

“Tolerance” today

Southpark mocked the tolerance push years ago by showing a situation where Mr. Garrison, a very out homosexual got worse and worse, while the children upset by this were sent to “tolerance camp,” run as a concentration camp. In the end, it was actually Garrison who flipped, saying he wanted to be called out so he could sue and get rich, but also pointed out that there are limits to what we should be forced to tolerate.

I have had many friends from all walks of life in my 37 years, and while there are some I don’t discuss certain topics with, I don’t judge or hate them for something I disagree with or believe wrong. There are also parts of the current push that I actually agree with. Sexual orientation, gender, race, none of these should be used when hiring, save the very few jobs where you will work for a religious organization. Yes, a Church can refuse to hire you if you are gay, and it’s against their beliefs. Likewise, they can hire only those who are of the same faith, or even more, only those who attend that specific church, and it’s legal. Likewise, a private business can turn away any customer they choose, yet we have seen a bakery forced to close completely because the owner simply stood up for what he believed in.

I’m going to make this as clear as I can. The First Ammendment states “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Yes, it goes on to address freedom of speech, the press, and more, but that’s the ONLY mention of religion. If I choose to not take your money for services I provide, because I believe you are living an immoral life, that is NOT ILLEGAL! It’s a business choice, and could cause me to go out of business due to lack of customers, but it is NOT a reason for the business to be driven out by the government. Likewise, it is not a violation of the First Amendment to have a cross, or nativity scene, or menorah, or star of David, on public land. Simply put, the First Amendment states that the US Government cannot give preference to one faith over others, nor can they in any way restrict anyone from fully embracing their faith, PERIOD!

Today, sadly, there is a push for “tolerance” from groups such as Code Pink and their ilk. They want to silence all dissenting voices, even trying (and they may have succeeded) to have Christians arrested for simply speaking NEAR (not at) a rally they organized. In the base meaning of the word, to tolerate literally means to endure. You tolerate an unruly or obnoxious child at the supermarket only as long as it takes to get away. You do more than that when it’s your child.

Now, on to what prompted this little rant. I have seen this before, and likely will again, but the image below circulates, and never fails to get people talking, often with those who believe the “activists” throwing items and screaming at the Priest are in the wrong shouted down.

In that image you see a Priest sitting and enduring an assault on his person by “tolerant” gay activists who are, in fact, breaking the law. Why are they not arrested? Because to do so would be “wrong” or an “attempt to silence them” or “deny them their rights.” We’ve been told this for so long that today, when the homosexual community wants the “right” to marry, people believe it’s a right for others already, and it’s not. I do not have a “right” to get married, why do they get that right put into law? Now that it’s there? While many will say I’m trying to stir up unrest or worse, we WILL see a Church sued, and likely have their 501C-3 status revoked for refusing to perform a gay wedding. This is not about freedom, it’s about doing what many claim others want to do, forcing beliefs on others.

I could care less what you do in the privacy of your own home, but when you tell me I’m not allowed to even think it’s wrong, you are nearing nazi brownshirt levels of ignorance and hate. I am a Christian, and I believe that homosexuality is wrong. I’m also a college graduate, and I know that, biologicaly, two men or two women cannot, without the use of technology, and something from a member of the opposite sex, reproduce. Yes, the act of sex is physically enjoyable, but it’s sole purpose is procreation! So, how is something that completely prohibits reproduction, without the help of others from the gender you don’t find attractive, not wrong? Answer? Ask that of any “activist” and they’ll point out frogs that change gender, or how animals all over the world have homosexuals in their ranks, or the fallacy of Greek pedophilia and homosexuality (rant for another time), or they’ll just start screaming at you for being ignorant.

We need to reclaim civil society people. Be who you want, I will believe what I believe, and you won’t do anything to change that by attacking and insulting me. Will I let my beliefs influence me in hiring/firing? Only if I work for a religious organization and I’m told to. If I’m in a situation where I’m hiring for a secular company, my sole concern is can you do the job, and can you do it better than others applying, THAT’S IT!

All of this said, remember one point. All of the examples of “gays striking back at their oppressors” are aimed at Christians, period. They refuse to discuss that Christianity preaches that homosexuality is wrong, but that we are not to hate them, while ignoring that shariah law still demands homosexuals be BURIED UP TO THEIR NECK IN THE STREET AND STONED UNTIL DEAD! Why is this? Could it be that they know Christians won’t attack them, and often will just walk away, while islam will KILL THEM? That is exactly it, as well as our current government and the “main stream” media screaming that islam is peaceful and all but saying Christians are doing everything and rigging it to blam islam.

And people still wonder why we have issues in society?

Not only did we, once again, witness one of the major issues with society today, that being “Black Friday,” but we also saw people completely ignore the rules of polite society.

Yes, there’s the old joke that, just hours after being thankful for what you have, you can elbow people to get a good deal on more stuff, but it’s true. I actually went to Wal-Mart Thursday night, as they had a few home appliances on a great sale, which I need for the house I’m building, and I watched as people almost trampled each other. I live in a “small town,” so we were spared the horrors that were seen in places like LA, NYC or Chicago, but why can’t people be courteous, rather than only screaming at others to be? I saw people literally screaming at others to not block the aisle, while they were doing that very thing, but if you suggest they take their own advice, you will be called ignorant, a racist, or worse.

Well, it seems that Michael Brown is being remembered, by people using his name to justify their refusing to even cooperate with police. In South Strabane, PA, a man was suspected of shoplifting, so the store manager at Wal-Mart called the police. When they arrived, this man refused to show ID and refused to allow the officer, who he all but yelled the name of, to see the receipt. He said “he knows who I am,” before admitting that the officer had arrested him before. This is strike one for me, as it shows a criminal history. In “showing the receipt,” he treated the officer like a child, telling him “look with your eyes, not your hands,” even after the officer told him he couldn’t read it due to moving. The idiot then said his hands were shaking because he was mad. As an officer, had a man who was larger than I am said he was “mad,” I’d have him on the ground, or at least in cuffs.

In addition to this, he had someone recording, so we hear him say that no one called, thereby accusing the officer of lying, and also suggesting he knows what the manager did, even though he has no way to know if the manager called or not. The alarm not going off means nothing, as not everything is tagged to do that. Finally, he walks around, yelling while holding his hands up, that he fears for his life and saying the officer is “trying to Mike Brown me” while the officer never even acted as if he was going to draw his weapon.

Here’s the video –

So, we have a black man, who, after robbing a store of cigarillos, and physically assaulting the store owner/operator, struggled to take a police officer’s sidearm, only to be shot. To be clear, the wounds showed that he was not running away, his hands were not up, and so on. Yet when the evidence showed that the officer wasn’t in the wrong, that’s ignored, and now, apparently, a way to get police to leave you alone when you are likely guilty.

A few suggestions for if you are approached in a situation like this. Show your ID, let the officer actually hold the receipt, and don’t act like this, instantly accusing the police of trying to kill you! You are in a private business, which means they or the police when called, CAN SEE AND HOLD YOUR RECEIPT, and it’s not racist or anything of the like!

So, all of that said, what are your thoughts?
