Saving Private Elton

So Congress has passed a bill which ends the so-called "Don't ask; Don't tell" policy on gays in the military which was one of the most brilliant things ever done by the Clinton administration. What is so typical about this legislation as is true with most liberal/socialist legislation is that it attempts to end discrimination against one group by discriminating against another larger group. Liberals simply cannot look past our differences and find ways for us all to get along. Instead they must demonize one group for the edification of another. And of course, this is not really done for the good of either group, rather for the good of the politicians who can once again claim the holier than thou personna they so dearly love to use to mask their evil nature. Ask yourself a question; 'What was really wrong with this policy?'. If a gay person wanted to serve their country, they could. If they wanted to fight terrorism, they could. All they had to agree to was not to be 'openly gay' while in uniform or on base. Granted, this may cramp their style a little but the same is true if we do away with the policy. Many straight individuals could claim that openly gay members on base would 'cramp their style'. So what we had with the "Don't ask; Don't tell" policy was a pretty good compromise on a basically insolvable problem. What are the possible drawbacks to ending this policy? Let's look at a few facts.

1. Many religions view homosexuality as an abomination. They are commanded by their religion to disassociate themselves from this lifestyle. Regardless of whether you agree or not, this is their faith and their teachings. The numbers of people who fall into this category are far greater than the number of gays who want to serve.

2. Many individuals in combat units are type 'A', aggressive and intense personalities. Say what you will, but when the stuff goes down on the front lines, these are the guys you want watching your six. Many of these individuals see homosexuality as a weakness, a sin and they worry about unwanted advances. You would probably call them homophobic. Fine, I don't think they care what you call them (just don't say it to their face!). Again, however, in the case of front line combat units especially, they are much more prevalent than the number of gays who wish to be there.

3. Members of the opposite sex are not allowed to sleep together or shower together for obvious reasons. If this policy is lifted and now we will have openly gay members of the military, will they be getting separate sleeping and bathing facilities? If not, are heterosexuals now going to be able to sleep and bath with the opposite sex for whom they hold an attraction? Well? It's hardly fair to let one group sleep and bath with the ones to whom they hold an attraction and not let another now is it? You see this being fair thing is not always as easy at is seems.

4. A very good argument can be made to anyone who cares to hear the truth, that the members of the first two groups mentioned above make up a large portion of the individuals that make the U. S. military a formidable fighting force. In many cases throughout military history our soldiers have prevailed in situations where the odds were overwhelmingly against them. It is the unknown factor; some call it the 'fighting spirit'. Using the military for some kind of social experiment or simply to push an agenda that may in and of itself be intended to weaken our military is to risk diminishing this fighting spirit. This will most certainly cost American lives in some cases such as mentioned above.

So what do we see here? We have a situation where the religious beliefs and feelings of the many are being subjected to the feelings and beliefs of a few. We have a situation where potentially, individuals in the majority are going to be forced to sleep and bath with the minority who openly find them sexually attractive. This same 'privelege' will not however be extended to the majority. We have a situation in which on line fighting units may question the tenacity and focus of all of their members causing unneccessary stress in an already life and death situation. We have a situation in which American soldiers may be put to a greater risk because of a possible loss of fighting spirit. And what is all of this for? Ostensibly to soothe the feelings of one small group of people who rightly or wrongly believe they are being discriminated against in the military, in which there is no obligation for them to serve. We have a situation where liberals once again are going to punish the many for the sake of the few. Many can't understand why. Fundamentally it is because liberals don't think straight. They believe there exists a Utopian society that is there for the taking if we will only listen to their politically correct solutions to every problem that can possibly arise in the life of a human being. They believe that they alone understand this and if we all just let them run our lives we will all be one step closer to that Nirvana. Sadly, the truth is that not only do they typically not really help the few since they always further marginalize them, but indeed they hurt the many in the process. This of course takes us exponentially further away from the supposed Utopia; which of course does not exist on Earth.

Finally, all of this can be thought out and expressed by an old curmudgeon living in the middle of Texas, biding his time till the good Lord sees fit to bring him home. And yet, the smartest minds in politics can't figure this out? Or, can they? And...if they can, and yet they do it anyway, then why? Is it possible that their real intent is to harm the cohesiveness of American fighting forces? I know that you find this hard to believe, but ask yourself why would one do this if they knew it was a bad idea? Surely some are just going along to get votes, but the ones behind the scenes, the ones who really push the issue to the forefront; do you believe that they have the U. S. military's best interest at heart? Really?

It's So Easy....


...Even A Republican Can Do It!!

It really is a daily struggle anymore not to completely lose faith in humankind. We The People are constantly trying to send messages to our representatives. We call, we write, we email and insist that they quit the crazy spending, that they cut the bloated government, that they respect the Constitution etc. etc. etc. America is and always has been a conservative country. We want people to take care of themselves if possible. We want government to stay out of our family's lives. We want to protect Liberty for our children and grandchildren. Every politician outside of Nancy Lugosi's district has to run as a conservative to win elections. We can talk about the stupidity of the average voter later, but all politicians know that they can't say, "I'm going to raise taxes, I'm going to take more of your freedoms away, I'm going to spend until our economy completely collapses from the weight of a bloated tyrannical government enslaving the American people to the point that their production goes down and the economy tanks. Please vote for me!" You never hear that and you never will, and yet when a democrat stands up and pretends to be conservative and talks about cutting taxes, you believe them. I know I know, I'm slipping off the blog a bit.
Republicans, please listen closely! It's very easy. Yes, even you can do it. Just tell the truth. Simply point out that every time a liberal opens their mouths, they are lying. No they don't care about your health. No they don't care about your children. No they don't care about your grandmother. If they did, they wouldn't be running this country into the ground every chance they get. They wouldn't be going to union rally's and giving speeches sounding like Hugo Chavez. They wouldn't be impugning the very people who drive our economy, you know those filthy job creating business owning rich people. They wouldn't be holding back minorities with depressing and racist rants about how the Republicans are rich white folks who hate you. How can any sane person support these people? Well, one reason is that the other side, the GOP, doesn't stand up and fight for what is right. Fight for truth. Fight for conservative values. Call a liar a liar. Call a socialist a socialist. Look, if you want to redistribute wealth then you are a greedy socialist who wants to destroy this nation. Get your money the old fashioned way...EARN IT! Republicans; start praising this great land. Start lauding our founding fathers. Start defending the United States Constitution just like your oath pledges you to do! Quit pretending that the democrats really want to be nice to you this time. NO! Lucy will pull the ball away again. She hates you dipstick! It ain't rocket science. Protect our Liberty. Hell just read your own damn platform you embiciles!! Smaller government. Lower taxes. Less spending. More Liberty. Individual responsibility. And yes, Charity to the truly needy. And for the truly lazy? Get a job deadbeat! Quit sponging off of your neighbors. Since when did being a mooch become vogue? Since when did Americans start taking pride in stealing the hard earned gains of their fellow Americans? Yes, Republicans; we want you to speak out, speak up, speak truth and quit hoping that the propagandist wing of the democrat party known as the main stream media is going to like you some day. pssssst...I've got a big secret to tell you. They never will! They are socialist useful idiots. They will never like you. Just look how they treat Sarah Palin; for no valid reason they hate her guts! They hate you too and they always will. Get over it!
And for heavens sake; could you please quit slobber whining all over the international airwaves for all of our enemies to see. How pathetic are you? Man up!

Every conservative voter in this country, pay attention. I don't care how proud you are that your congressman has seniority. If they are not true conservatives, they are hurting your children, your grandchildren and mine too. Vote them out in the next primary. Never forget a single vote. It's not that hard. Yes, it's so easy; even a Republican can do it.

You Lie Mr. President; and I mean that with the utmost respect...for the office.


So finally, we get the President to admit that tax cuts stimulate the economy? For years the liberals have been completely spastic about the Bush tax cuts were only tax cuts for the rich. That they would cost us money. That they wouldn't stimulate the economy. Now, as the tax cuts are close to expiring, even democrats are loathe to allow it. Why? Because in this recession it would be too dangerous to raise taxes on the middle class. It could cause another dip. Huh? First of all, I didn't think there were any tax cuts for the middle class. And tax cuts for the rich hurt the economy not help it. Why on earth would someone agree to tax cuts if it was bad for the economy? The answer is as plain as the nose on your face. Your president and most of the spokesman of his party; are simply and clearly, bold faced liars! They have pounded their fist and threw fits of feigned rage and traveled around the political shows on the propagandist arm of the party, lampooning the Bush tax cuts for 10 dad gum years!! And now, when reality is about to hit, and a president, whose low poll numbers cannot sustain another hit two years before an election; only now are they honest and admit that raising taxes during a recession is bad economic policy. Why? Because low taxes spur economic development and they know it. They have simply and consistently been lying to you over and over again. What sane person could vote for this party any time soon with it's current philosophy? Divide America. Class warfare. Lie constantly. Act conservative during election time, then govern like socialists. These people are despicable vermin and deserve not even a modicum of respect or support. If you vote for a liberal from either party you are quite simply a useful fool. They will lie cheat and steal from you and then blame it on the 'rich'. Well the big lie is bared for all to see. Rich people create the jobs that help the poor make it to the middle class and beyond if their ambitions and dreams match their tenacity and effort. Obama and his minions have been lying through their teeth to us all. Now we get to sit back and watch the propagandist media bend over and create new yoga positions in order to try and defend him and prop him up one more time before the next election, because he is simply too big to fail. It is disgusting. Stop voting for liars. Stop purchasing goods from corporations who prop up propagandist media outlets. Write letters to congressman and papers and anyone else you can think of. These vermin must be weeded out of the American political discourse once and for all. For this republic to survive, bold faced liars must be held accountable. Do you have the guts to face the truth?
