Annoying


So, tonight I dredged through the trenches of urban movie-watching in the greater New York City area.  I was simply in search of some good cinematic entertainment where I could kick back, relax, and allow myself to be taken away for a couple of hours.  You see, for me, watching movies is a total hobby.  I enjoy it much like other people enjoy golfing or shopping.  Don’t get me wrong…I love swinging my sticks on the fairways as much as the next guy, but I really enjoy watching movies.  Most of the movies I watch are by myself, which most people find odd, but it makes complete sense to me.  I enjoy the down time and I enjoy the escape.  No need to laugh out loud at every perfectly written quip just to let the person next to me know that I fully understood the humor.  No, I get to enjoy the films for what they really are: ENTERTAINMENT

I feel that I have the art of movie-watching down to a science.  Screen-writers need to really be on their “A game” if they’re going to impress me and cinematographers, editors, actors, as well as directors are extremely easy to sniff out if they’re a hack.  Those who know me know that if I recommend a movie then it’s a safe bet that other people should be able to enjoy it.  I have great taste in movies and I absolutely do NOT fall for the hook, line, and sinker comments from so called “professional movie critics” who try to tell us that “Brokeback Mountain” was one of the best movies ever!  In order to maintain my level of amateur movie criticism, I need to be able to WATCH the film.  When viewing a film in any of our country’s numerous urban areas, just being able to WATCH a movie is easier said than done….which begs the question: is being able to really enjoy a movie in urban-America a developed talent or a God-given ability?

I decided to watch the recently released Bernie Mac/Samuel Jackson movie, Soul Men.  It’s featured as a comedy/musical, which I thought would be a stretch if Samuel Jackson was starring in it.  There’s only so many roles an angry rich black man can play…and comedic roles usually aren’t the ticket.  I will admit that I was pleasantly surprised by Mr. Jackson’s acting, but it was quite obvious that he was well outside of his comfort zone by being in a movie that was quite litterally a complete knee-slapper!  Bernie Mac (God rest his sole) was a genius in this film!  His natural antics were allowed to flow freely, which was a clever move by the director.  I really, really enjoyed the movie…but I wonder how much more I would have enjoyed it had I been able to actually HEAR the damn movie!

Now, I’m going to make a few quantitative statements in order to set the scene and as God is my witness, all of them are absolutely accurate (as close as they can be without exaggerating):

In the theater, I was the only white person (literally).

There were at least 100 people in the theater for the duration of the film.

There were at least a dozen people who entered the theater, walked around, chatted, then left.

There were at least five children under the age of four years old (and this was a faily vulgar film, mind you).

There were at least four cell phone interruptions during the duration of the film.

There were at least four cell phone conversations that followed the cell phone interruptions (I kid you not).

There was at least one argument between a boyfriend/girlfriend (pimp/ho…ha ha ha, just kidding) that literally went on during the movie.

I was “patted down” after I moved through a metal detector to get into the theater.

There was only TWO employees working the concession stand, which had a line consisting of at least twenty-five people (the other employees were folding boxes, sweeping floors, talking on cell phones, etc…).

I fully understand the danger in allowing oneself to become succeptable to embracing stereotypes as truth because, for the most part, stereotypes are generalizations of a large group of people that are not always true.  In the case of urban movie-watching, however, the stereotypes are all 100% true!  This, of course, would imply that there no longer exists a stereotype in these regards…which I whole heartedly agree with.  Making the following statement (as generalized as it is) is no longer available to be labeled as a stereotype: black people can not watch a movie without being loud, abnoxious, inconsiderate, and rude.  It is almost as if it is completely against their genetic code to simply sit down and quietly watch a movie…or at least allow the other movie-goers to enjoy the movie.  This is NOT the first time I have observed this rude phenomenon while watching a movie in an urban area.  In fact, I can honestly say that I have NEVER watched a movie in an urban area without shaking my head in utter disbelief at some moment during the film.  Because I have been involved in so many sampling opportunities in order to fully concoct an opinion it is extremely easy for me to say that black people have no regard for anyone other than themselves…when inside the movie theater.  It’s clearly a cultural phenomenon!

Because it is evident that this is no longer a “stereotype” due to the large amounts of experience I have had then it is also safe to say that these statements and observations are in no way, shape, or form to be considered as racist.  Acknowledging the absolute truth does not make one a racist.  Ignoring it does.  It is an absolute truth that said stereotype does not exist.

It can also be said that trying to watch a movie in a theater filled with junior high school students would be equally as disappointing and annoying.  I’m not at all claiming that black people are the only group who makes watching movies a pain in the ass.  There’s just way too many experiences in way too many cities across our country (Dallas, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York City, Philladelphia, Baltimore, Louisville,  Indianapolis, etc…) to ignore the commonality that exists.  IN EVERY SINGLE LOCATION WHERE AT LEAST 90% OF THE MOVIE AUDIENCE WAS BLACK IT WAS THE EXACT SAME…IMPOSSIBLE TO ENJOY THE MOVIE WITHOUT DEALING WITH HOOTING, HOLLERING, CLAPPING, CELL PHONES, OUTLANDISH LAUGHING, CHITTER-CHATTER, AND SO ON AND SO FORTH…

For the life of me, I can’t understand the disrespect (which is how I personally see it…disrespect).  It doesn’t make sense to me, but then again, I’m not black.  I can joke about this with my black friends and they are all in unison with my sentiments, but none of them seem sympathetic in the least.  None of them can explain it, either.  It truly is a cultural phenomenon that pisses me off.

Maybe Barack Obama can save us from this misery, too?  After all, he is the Annointed One!

Before I get to selection of names that John McCain goes by these days, allow me to make a simple observation.  

       

A few years ago, the left-wing “blogosphere” surged onto the seen fueled by their hatred towards George W. Bush.  Out of the midst of this seething hatred for republicans and George W. Bush a new class of left-wing influences hit the seen.  One of these new entities rose to the top above all the rest much like how scum accumulates at the top of a pond.  The entity I’m referring to is no stranger to conservatives because of their outlandish and seething hatred for all things conservative: Daily Kos.   No other left-wing entity has been more inflammatory, embarrassing, and downright disgusting in nature than the Daily Kos has.  It should be noted that EVEN THE “DAILY KOS” PEOPLE ARE WELL AWARE OF THE CHARACTER OF JOHN McCAIN AND HAVE ACKNOWLEDGED THE FACT THAT HE IS NOTHING MORE THAN THE SUM OF THE NUMEROUS LIES THAT HE TELLS.  If you don’t believe me then feel free (buyer beware) to check it out yourself: http://www.dailykos.com/storyonly/2008/1/25/162026/147.  This should be very, very disturbing for republican conservatives when even a left-wing fanatical factory of filth and garbage is able to see exactly who John McCain really is!

_______________________________________________

Now…on to the many names of John McCain:

There are sooooooo many to choose from, but the list will begin with the ones that have been heard most recently amongst discussion with conservative republicans as well as with what has been read in conservative writings.  Here goes…in no particular order:

John McKennedy

John McDemoncrat

John McLiberal

John McFlip-Flop

John McLiar or John McPinocchio or John McMachiavelli

John McCain’t

…or my favorite (in conjunction with any of the others listed above)…

John McDouchebag!

Whichever name you end up voting for, make sure you dial a “1” before the phone number and type in the text of your choice followed by an asterisk.  Obviously, the annoying television show “American Idol” and the nomination process for the American President is starting to have more in common the further we get into the whole mess.  At the helm of this embarrassment is none other than John McCain.  In the past, he has been found driving the “Straight Talk Express” across the country in an effort to win the GOP nomination on the shirt-tails of his POW experience in North Korea.  Somewhere along the line, he jumped ship from the “Straight Talk Express” (or he simply broke down on some highway in New Hampshire or Floriduh) and instead has been directing the movement of the enormous political aircraft carrier properly named, “The U.S.S. Pinocchio”.  McCain has shown every American with a heartbeat exactly what he is all about and exactly what he is truly made of by his most recent actions.  By insinuating lies supported by more lies about his arch rival, Governor Mitt Romney, he has shown his true colors as a modern-day Machiavellian.  Up until recently, Americans thought that it was only the Clintons who embraced this type of spineless, unethical, and immoral type of politicking.  Boy, were we wrong!  It would appear, my friends, that the self-proclaimed “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution” is laughing at us as he gathers up electorates on his way to the White House. 

       

People in the media would often make fun of Rudy Giuliani for nearly always (and automatically) reverting back to his experience and leadership as NYC Mayor during the September 11th disaster.  They would say that he had nothing else to run on other than this experience and that he was monopolizing and manipulating the events for his own political gain.  Curiously, however, no one has dared challenge the old wooden man (McCain) of doing the exact same thing as his pal, Rudy.  While you will never hear me claim that McCain (a.k.a., McKennedy, McLiar, McBastard, etc…) shouldn’t be recognized or embraced for his service in the United States military, you will hear me question whether or not his experiences in North Korea warrant a bid for the presidency!  Yes, it is true that McCain was a POW in North Korea for more than five years.  Yes, it is true that his experiences are unquestionably respectable.  No, it does NOT mean we should overlook the amazingly large amount of flaws that he has purposely accumulated while he attempts to hold the republican party hostage on his way to assuming the role of Commander in Chief!  At some point, we absolutely have to draw the line…and for good reason.

I want to make it clear that it is not my claim or argument that John McKennedy would make a terrible president because I don’t know what kind of president he would be.  No one knows!  I have an idea of what kind of president he would be and I feel that the idea I have is well-grounded, objective, and fair.  What I am comfortable claiming is that he would make a TERRIBLE republican president and he should not even be allowed to carry the moniker (R) next to his name.  The reasons for this assertion are clear to anyone who calls themself a republican or conservative.

       

He has single handedly stymied the constitution and the free-speech that it protects by ushering in one of the most embarrassing works of legislation in our nation’s history.  The properly named “McCain/Feingold Campaign Finance Reform Bill” put an end to “soft money” political contributions and imposed limits to how much individuals are allowed (by federal law) to donate.  No longer are Americans able to support whom they want to support by the means they feel comfortable with.  Instead, McCain embraced a bill that inserted some of the largest amounts of federalism any single legislative act has seen!  Most political scholars would argue that the “McCain/Feingold” bill has more to do with protecting incumbents and solidifying their “good old boy” system of doing things in Washington because it is now much more difficult for an incumbent to be defeated than ever before.  It’s easy to see why 100% of liberal democrats supported this bill.  Is this even close to resembling what Ronald Reagan would have done?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.

He also embraces the idea of capitalizing on a nearly untapped voting block (illegal immigrants and their direct friends/family members) by introducing another tragedy in the legislative branch of our government.  The duly named, “McCain/Kennedy Immigration Bill” allows for ALL illegal immigrants to simply stay where they are as long as they work with the federal government and set up some sort of a payment plan to pay a $3,000 fine.  I’m sure the interest rates they would extend to these law-breaking immigrants while setting up payment plans would be better than what you or I could get to finance a new home!  While Reagan actually did embrace amnesty at one time of his administration, it was loudly criticized by none other than Ronald Wilson Reagan immediately after it was sent through.  It would later be described as one of his biggest personal regrets as president.  Would Reagan endorse another wave of amnesty today especially when national security is at the highest level of concern?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.  Maybe John McCain wasn’t taking notes during that particular Reaganomics 101 class!

McCain has admitted that economics is not one of his strong suits, which may be a reason why he voted against the Bush tax cuts…not once…but TWICE!  Personally, I think that would be a cop-out because he clearly admitted that the tax cuts benefited the rich way too much.  This is a very scary school of thought for conservatives because it ushers in the talking-points and political ideals of liberal democrats.  The far left have made it clear that one of their primary voting blocks are the people who are easily offended by economic differences between Americans.  They have not hidden the fact that they (democrats) love to use class warfare as a major political platform as an effort to motivate the economically deprived towards voting for them.  A large, vibrant red flag should go up inside the heads of any clear-minded American whenever you hear a politician use the phrase “…benefits the rich too much” because what they’re really saying is that they’re trying to solidify more entitlement programs that would make the lower class even MORE dependent upon the federal and state government.  Let me be absolutely clear…this train of thought is nowhere close to basic core beliefs of true conservatives and republicans.  In fact, this train of thought couldn’t be more opposite!  Yet, here we have a person running for president on the republican ticket who espouses class warfare by his actions, while speaking a completely different tactic with his mouth.  There is no one on earth who would dare say Ronald Reagan would ever endorse higher taxes.  Would Ronald Reagan have voted against the Bush tax cuts (which CLEARLY gave much more of a percentage back to lower income wage earners than higher wage earners) had he been given the chance?  I don’t think so.  Who is it that repetitively (and annoyingly) claims to have been a “foot-soldier in the Reagan revolution”?  I thought so.

       

While there are still several other examples of John McKennedy falling off of the republican bandwagon, I don’t see the point in writing them in this particular blog.  I consider it the responsibility of every American voter to find information on any candidate their deciding to vote for (or against).  Too many men have died in our country fighting for the right to cast a vote in a free political system and whenever anyone takes this right too lightly it is unfortunately the same as spitting in the face of these men.  In the end, you should still vote your conscience and heart, while trying to find the person who most closely resembles your own values and beliefs.  Religion should not be an issue in the matter (which is why I can’t take Huckabee seriously) unless the person running for office has a background of fanatical religious behavior or intolerance.  I will admit, however, that I would have to really know a lot about a person if he/she were running for federal office as a Muslim.  I don’t consider that any form of bigotry because I’m simply acknowledging the fact that we are directly at war with radical Islam.  That’s the only reason, by the way.

As for McDouchebag’s actions, it is clear that he is willing to do or say anything in order to gain power.  He has blatantly spread obvious lies about his main opposition in the republican party, Governor Mitt Romney.  Even the New York Times has written that McCain’s claim about Romney supporting a secret time table for retreat from Iraq can not be supported by the facts.  Yep, that’s right…THE NEW YORK TIMES even recognizes a lie even if it comes from the person they are supporting for president (by the way, it should be a huge alarm sound when the New York Times supports a republican nominee for president)!  McCain’s actions clearly show the American people that he’s willing to do anything to become president.  Eventually, and he’s coming every so close right now, we will be unable to tell the difference between John McCain and Bill/Hillary Clinton. 

It’s downright despicable what McKennedy did just prior to the Florida primaries and because of those actions I can not in good faith vote for him if he does end up winning the republican nomination.  I have promised myself that there is no chance I will ever vote for John McCain because I’m offended that he would assume I’m as stupid as he is when it comes to party politics.

In fact, John McCain actually is a fairly ignorant man.  It is rarely reported that he graduated SECOND FROM THE BOTTOM of his class while at the Naval Academy.  Does this sound like the credentials of a man seeking to become the most powerful person in the world?  Ann Coulter recently said, “John McCain is so stupid that he doesn’t even realize he’s been caught lying”.  While I do not agree with everything Miss Coulter has to say about politics, I will admit that I think she’s really hit a good point with these comments.  McCain is not the sharpest tool in the shed and I think that a McCain presidency would make “W” look like a Rhodes Scholar in comparison!

_______________________________________________

BELOW ARE A FEW (just a few) OF THE LIES, FLIP-FLOPS, AND INDISCRETIONS OF JOHN McCAIN:

  • John Fund, from the Wall Street Journal, reported that McCain would NEVER appoint a judge like Samuel Alito because he “wears his conservatism on his sleeve”.  Recently, at the GOP debates in Simi Valley, CA, John McCain said that he has always supported Alito and embraces the mold that he fits on the bench.  Hmmmmm…
  • McCain went from saying he would not support repeal of Roe v. Wade to saying the exact opposite.  Hmmmm…
  • McCain criticized TV preacher Jerry Falwell as “an agent of intolerance” in 2002, but has since decided to cozy up to the man who said Americans “deserved” the 9/11 attacks. (Indeed, McCain has now hired Falwell’s debate coach.)  Hmmmmm…..
  • McCain used to oppose Bush’s tax cuts for the very wealthy, but he reversed course in February.  Hmmmmm…..
  • In 2000, McCain accused Texas businessmen Sam and Charles Wyly of being corrupt, spending “dirty money” to help finance Bush’s presidential campaign. McCain not only filed a complaint against the Wylys for allegedly violating campaign finance law, he also lashed out at them publicly. In April, McCain reached out to the Wylys for support.  Hmmmmmm….
  • In 2000, McCain accused George W. Bush of being too negative towards him and “attacking” his record.  He said that the campaign George W. Bush ran could never be endorsed or simulated by himself because he could “never sink that low”.  In 2007, John McCain hired the exact same campaign directors/managers as George W. Bush had during the 2000 primaries.  Hmmmmm…..
  • He now not only approves of, but completely endorses a federally mandated “carbon tax” that would add to the cost of gas prices and only be enforced in America.  He agrees that humans are the sole reason for possible climate change (eventhough the jury is definitely still out on this issue), which is a direct opposite view than he had just one year ago.  Hmmmm…..

_______________________________________________

My dear friends, there are dozens of other examples that clearly illustrate the cunning and dishonest nature of John McDouchebag.  He has clearly gone after Mitt Romney for being a “flip flopper” when it is absolutely evident that he is one of the biggest violators of political maneuvering who claims a position depending on which way the wind is blowing.  I hate to be so blunt with assertions like this, but there’s no other way to say it: John McCain, unfortunately, is a bold-face liar who can not be trusted to tell the truth.  He should not be running for president under the republican ticket and if he were running as a democrat or independent then I really wouldn’t have much of a beef with him because he’d be well within his right to say or do exactly what he is currently saying and doing.  It must not go unnoticed that John McCain is attempting to hold the republican party hostage and the body count is piling up in his wake of Machiavellian tactics that only Bill and Hillary Clinton can appreciate.

       

Buyer beware!

Had I known that the major prerequisite for Iowans considering whom to vote for (president of the United States) was to simply be a pastor, preacher, or evengelical freakazoid then I would have become ordained through an on-line surrogate and ran for office myself!  The mere fact that Governor Huckabee is using the predisposed bigotry of evengelical Christians is shameful enough for me to consider voting for myself as a write-in candidate or for the Independent or Libertarian candidate if he is eventually chosen as the GOP nominee! 

“I’d like to ask that same person who voted for Huckabee if they would have still voted for him if he were a Mormon.  I’m guessing that the answer to that question would incredibly easy to figure out…thus proving my assumption of religious manipulation and bigotry.”  – Nostromos, 2008

Did any of the Iowan pinheads consider Huckabee’s past record as a moderate conservative…at best?  Did any of them even care to realize how lenient he has been on giving away tax dollars to illegal immigrants?  I’m not proposing myself as an expert in all political matters, but it seems to me that by giving tuition assistance to illegal immigrants while making blue collar Americans pay for theirs is not only ridiculous, but downright offensive in the highest degree!  I’m also not too sure about how responsible it is to give illegal immigrants access to driving licenses especially since the advent of globalized terrorism aimed squarely at our front door!

Another thing that has rarely been discussed and is doubtful that the masses of home-schooled evengelical bigots even considered before casting their vote for the Huckster is the enormous black-eye Mike Huckabee cast upon himself as a man and his administration as a leader is the disgusting reality that he pardoned hundreds of convicts during his time as Governor of the state of Arkansas.  One of the people he personally sought after to pardon (by personally administering massive amounts of pressure to the parole board) was a convicted rapist and murderer.  After he pardoned him, the sick S.O.B. headed west to Kansas City and murdered a newly wed couple.  Two people who had just took the plunge to begin their lives together anew were snuffed out of existence simply because of the wreckless act of Gov. Huckabee.  This is inexcuseable for any leader we trust to protect us.  It is more than inexcuseable.  It is disgusting and highly aggrivating…but I guess the “Christian” voters of the great state of Iowa didn’t care about that.  How many convicts did Romney pardon after his governorship?  The answer: NONE!  Now, that speaks volumes about the type of man Romney is especially when compared to the type of man Huckabee is. (more…)

Amnesty was granted (more or less) for illegal aliens during the Reagan administration of the 1980’s.  I was too young to really understand what the jibber-jabber was all about, but I do remember the anger and confusion in the eyes of those around me as they sat around the television speaking about the issue at hand.  Several years later I would speak to my parents about this event and it was confirmed that it was the issue of “Reagan Amnesty” that gave them so much consternation.  To this day, many of the conservative ilk (which make up at least one-half of the population today) still claim that the decision Ronald Reagan made to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants was the lone “black eye” of his administration.  When asked to compare the act of amnesty to the “Iran-Contras Scandal“, the majority of Reaganites simply shrug at the prospects of Col. Ollie North receiving a $16,000 home security system (in conjunction with the funds accrued from the alleged sale of weapons to the Iranians in order to finance the Nicaraguan freedom-fighters) being even remotely close in comparison to the free gift of citizenship he (Reagan) gave to millions of law-breaking aliens.  There are several reasons one could think of that would lend understanding to why most Americans feel so strongly about this issue, but the underlying is sweet…and simple: Americans treasure their homeland and consider their citizenship in the United States the greatest gift God ever gave them.  Some could argue that most Americans take their United States citizenship for granted, but none can argue that most of us would NEVERintentionally want to live anywhere else.  It’s something that we hold dear to us; it’s something we take for granted only because the majority of us have never had the experience of living abroad or fighting in wars on foreign soil; but I can almost promise you that IF more Americans were forced to live in Equador, Cuba, France, Russia, or Nigeria (and pretty much ANY other country in the world, for the most part) then they would almost certainly and unequivically come to a large amount of gratitude and respect for their homeland. 

Seeing our language, culture, and customs being overtaken by foreign influenceis not something that most Americans can idly sit by and watch!  I will admit that there is a fringe group of racists who want nothing to do with the infux of latin-American immigrants, but they represent a fairly small percentage of those vehemently opposing this new measure of Amnesty that George W. Bush (and most of Congress) has recently endorsed.  Personally, I am more angry with our nation’s inability to keep American jobs on American soil as well as the ridiculous amount of federal taxes that we as Americans are FORCED to pay at ever increasing measures!  This idea of granting amnesty to 12 million illegal immigrants (and that number is almost sure to rise to around 40 million once you figure in children, spouses, and other family members) is not far behind from overtaking the seriousness of a flatlining economy, lost jobs, ridiculous taxes, and failed social entitlement programs, however! 

What have we done?  Is it too late to change the course of events that are being set in motion by the mongoloids in Washington D.C.?  WHAT HAVE WE AS AMERICANS ALLOWED TO HAPPEN TO US?  IS IT OUR POLITICIAN’S FAULT FOR REPEATEDLY BENDING US OVER THEIR KNEES AND SPANKING US; OR IS IT OUR FAULT FOR CONSTANTLY ELECTING THESE CAREER POLITICIANS WHO HAVE NO INTEREST IN ANYTHING BESIDES LINING THEIR OWN POCKETS AND GETTING RE-ELECTED?  I CONTEND THAT IT IS WITHOUT QUESTION THE FAULT OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND WE HAVE NO ONE TO BLAME THAN OURSELVES!  HOW MANY STUPID, RIDICULOUS, AND IRRESPONSIBLE THINGS DOES TEDDY (hiccup) KENNEDY HAVE TO DO BEFORE HE’S VOTED OUT OF OFFICE?  SERIOUSLY!!!  It’s people/politicians exactly like him (on BOTH sides of the aisle) who have made the types of decisions that have led us to exactly where we are today.  Why are people like him in office?  Because WE put him there!  We keep him there!  The American people should NOT be surprised by the stupid things that stupid people do especially when they’ve been doing this their entire career as a six-figure politician.  It’s because of this fact that I believe the American people should stop “pissing and moaning” about the things they’re unhappy about.  Look in the mirror, my friends!  IT’S YOUR FAULT!  So, the next time Pablo and Juan beat up and steal from your little children on their way to school, make sure you thank yourself for allowing it to happen.  The next time you read about an illegal immigrant driving drunk and killing a family of five on the highway…make sure you take a look in the mirror and thank YOURSELF!  [Obviously, I’m generalizing with those scenerios, but I’m guessing that you’re smart enough to know what I’m getting at.]

THANKS A LOT, PEOPLE!  THANKS A WHOLE HECK OF A LOT!  WE’RE GETTING EXACTLY WHAT WE ASKED FOR…SO WHEN ARE WE GOING TO WAKE UP AND DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT?  That, my friend, is the $7,500 question (which also happens to be the amount of money that each illegal immigrant costs the American tax-payer through lack of paid taxes, medical expenses, entitlements, and welfare) that I’m begging you to answer!

I absolutely can not blame the illegal immigrant for this problem because I can honestly say that if I were holed up in Mexico and had a family to provide for then there’s not a chance in hell I’d stick around to see if the Mexican government could fix the situation or not.  I’d be hopping over that fence quicker than you could say “como estas, muchacho“!!!  And you know that you’d be doing the EXACT same thing, too!  The fault for this ever-growing delima is not with the illegal immigrant, but instead with us.  You and me.  Since we’re the ones who elected a bunch of meatballs to run the federal government then there’s no where to look for placing the blame than at ourselves.  It’s literally as simple as that.

[ some of the information below has been taken in part from Wikepedia] 

Illegal immigration refers to immigration across national borders in a way that violates the immigration laws of the destination country. Under this definition, an illegal immigrant is a foreigner who either illegally crossed an international political border, be it by land, sea or air, or a foreigner who legally entered a country but nevertheless overstay their visa in order to live and/or work therein. In politics, the term may imply a larger set of social issues and time constraints with disputed consequences in areas such as economy, social welfare, education, health care, slavery, prostitution, crime, legal protections, public services, and human rights. Illegal emigration would be leaving a country in a manner that violates the laws of the country being left.

Since when did it become a constitutional issue to protect gay-pride parades that endorse some of the most grotesque actions between human beings and animals, but at the same time be unconstitutional for communities to place Nativity scenes on public grounds during Christmas time?  I wonder if “amoral” is even the best word to use when describing our current societal situation?  I’ll let you be the judge of that, but first, allow me to define “amoral” for you as: having no moral standards, restraints, or principles; unaware of or indifferent to questions of right or wrong: a completely amoral person.  Does this sound like a tight fit for the society in which we live?

     

Now, I’m not at all attacking the “gay community” by claiming that gay-pride parades are grotesque.  It’s just an opinion of what I’ve actually seen depicted on television and in magazines.  Even the most benign person with little regard to the whole idea of homosexuality will often times be very uncomfortable with the images depicted from these parades of “individuality” and “expression”.  I feel the same way about “Black Panther” parades or “KKK” parades!  It’s an extreme and fanatical expression that hardly is needed by its core group, but because we live in America and because we have so many individual freedoms it is completely acceptable to be a part of or endorse these activities.  Yet, the question still remains!  Why are actions such as these parades so protected, but Nativity scenes during Christmas time under attack?  Why did the Boulder, Colorado School District allow for a whacked-out psychologist to come speak to school children about using drugs and engaging in sexual activities?  Yeah…this is for real and I’m not making this stuff up!  A school district in Boulder, CO actually paid to have a psychologist from (where else) the Bay Area of California come speak to their children and not only advocate, but endorse the use of drugs, alcohol, gay sex, and straight sex!  Not only did this school district set up this event, but they FORCED their students to attend the convocation!  What is wrong with our society these days?  Where did we go wrong and where are we headed?

 

 Violent crimes are increasing; teen pregnancies are always present; hate-crimes are on the rise; student drop-outs continue to thrive, especially in big cities; video games and television are becoming more sexual and violent on a yearly basis; kids are more obeese than ever; fivolous law suits are becoming more and more obsurd; the family-unit is becoming as scarce as the bald eagle; sexual crimes and misconduct are being reported at a record level; drug use is on the rise with new designer drugs appearing on the street every couple of years; it’s now more likely that you’ll be divorced than end your life with the same partner you began with; kids are growing up in broken homes; the father-figure is under attack by feminist groups; and we’re forced to learn about new political scandals every other week!  The list could, unfortunately, go on and on.  It’s unfortunate that a nation as rich and as blessed as America can have so many social problems with hardly any solutions offered by our leaders.  The newest social disaster is the fact that our kids are simply NOT safe at their schools due to the rise in school violence and shootings!  These events are covered by the “main scream media” like they’re red-carpet events held by our Hollywood icons!  What are kids supposed to think when they see such sensationalistic coverage of such harrowing events as these?  I’m afraid to say that we have hit a breaking point in our society.  Yes, it is safe to say that we are traveling down a road that is undoubtedly leading to nowhere.

     

Al Gore spreads his gospel of global warming as if there’s actually something to save this planet for.  He seems to care more for the section of Crab Grass on your front lawn that he does for the twelve-year old student in junior high school who is at high risk of ruining his life through drugs, sex, violence, or crime!  Why should we protect this earth for “future generations” when we’re not at all concerned about what type of “future generation” we’re actually producing?  Seriously…why should we even care what Al Gore has to say or whether you want to drive a gas guzzling SUV versus a nappy-looking hybrid?  If the people we’re creating to inhabit this earth in the future are so destructive and hopeless then does it even matter?  This is a theory that could be discussed ad nauseum by people with opposing points of view, but to no avail.  There are simply too many people with critical positions in our society’s development of children as well as our legislation who believe that we’re on a good track.  Where’s the proof to oppose this way of thinking?  Well, it’s quantitative evidence that shows exactly what we as Americans are thinking in regards to specific issues and it’s only this type of evidence that I can submit to you.

Below, I will post some charts that represent data taken from a survey of several thousand individuals regarding social issues in America.  I will not attempt to translate this data because I would like for you to do that yourself.  I’m guessing that it may alarm most of you, but for the secular progressives who think we’re already on the right track I’m sure it won’t prove a thing.  I hope you enjoy the data and I hope it doesn’t ruin you day.
