New Card Liberals, This Ones Getting Old, Fast.

Me: Wow, that guy’s views are terri…

Liberal: RACIST!!!!!!

Me: O_o views are color coded?

It’s nonstop!  I swear, every time we have any issues with un-American views from a person of any color other than white, we’re accused of being racists.  Unless of course we’re black, then we’re self loathing black men.  The latest play of the race card involves Van Jones.  Opposing a self avowed communist has nothing to with skin color but apparently they can’t see that.  They can only see color, which leads me to ask: “Who’s the racist here?”

It’s still the same with Obama, if his policies give you pause, it’s because you’re a racist and have a problem with a black man in the White House.  I’m surprised the radical left hasn’t called on a name change on that yet.  The building is awfully racist, why does it have to be white? *facepalm*

VAN JONES: I met all these young radical people of color – I mean really radical, communists and anarchists. And it was, like, ‘This is what I need to be a part of… I spent the next ten years of my life working with a lot of those people I met in jail, trying to be a revolutionary…I was a rowdy nationalist on April 28th, and then the verdicts came down on April 29th..By August, I was a communist.

Van Jones was, or should say is, still a communist.  He has never retracted that statement.  Ever.  He’s blamed whites for poisoning people of color and that’s not racist?  No, or course not.  Opposing his radical views is racist, blaming the deaths of people of color to evil whites poisoning water supplies is not.  Liberals, is this what you’re saying?!?  I know Kool-Aid goes 3 times as far as soda but don’t you think it’s time to put it down?  I don’t care if the man was orange, his views and background are an affront to America and Obama had no problem having him as one of his 30+ Czars.  That speaks volumes in and of itself.

After Van Jones resigned, let me say that again, resigned (no, Obama did not ask him to step down, as confirmed by David Axelrod) he released this statement:

“On the eve of historic fights for health care and clean energy, opponents of reform have mounted a vicious smear campaign against me,” Jones said in the statement. “They are using lies and distortions to distract and divide.”

What did this vicious smear campaign filled with lies and distortion entail?  Nothing more and nothing less than video, audio, and publications using his very own words.  The truth somehow becomes lies and smear.  Go figure.

VAN JONES: And our Native American sisters and brothers who were pushed and bullied and mistreated and shoved into all the land we didn’t want, where it was all hot and windy, well, guess what, renewable energy. Guess what, solar industry. Guess what, wind industry. They now own and control 80% of the renewable energy resources. No more broken treaties. No more broken treaties. Give them the wealth. Give them the wealth. Give them the dignity. Give them the respect that they deserve. No justice on stolen land. We owe them a debt.

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. – Barack Obama

VAN JONES: What about our immigrant sisters and brothers? What about our immigrant sisters and brothers? What about people who come here from all around the world who we’re willing to have out in the field, with poison being sprayed on them, poison being sprayed on them because we have the wrong agricultural system. And we’re willing to poison them and poison the earth to put food on our table, but we don’t want to give them rights and we don’t want to give them dignity and we don’t want to give them respect?

We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. – Barack Obama

VAN JONES:  We’re really entering a third wave of environmentalism in the United States.  The white polluters and the white environmentalists are essentially steering poison into the people of color communities.

REVEREND WRIGHT:  The government lied about the Tuskegee experiment. They purposely infected African American men with syphilis.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: (emphasis mine) I don’t know, not having been there and not seeing all the facts, what role race played in that. But I think it’s fair to say, number one, any of us would be pretty angry; number two, that the Cambridge police acted stupidly in arresting somebody when there was already proof that they were in their own home, and, number three, what I think we know separate and apart from this incident is that there’s a long history in this country of African Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately.

Is this the transformation we were promised?  Do these sound radical to anyone else?  Does being opposed to such views constitute racism?  The race card is overplayed.  Try a new card liberals, this one is getting very old, very fast.

A Pigment of Imagination

It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing.

Boromir may have been talking about the One Ring at the time, but oh how true this is for something else.  Melanin.  Dictionary.com defines melanin as “any of a class of insoluble pigments, found in all forms of animal life, that account for the dark color of skin, hair, fur, scales, feathers, etc.”  A pigment.  That’s it, the difference between you and anyone with darker skin than you is more pigment.  The difference between you and anyone with lighter skin than you is less pigment.  Melanin.

racecardRaces, they’re good at Daytona, and that’s pretty much it.  The whole idea that there are different “races” of men is a farce anyway, we’re all of one race, the race of Adam.  Which is to say, I am a human and guess what?  You are a human too.  Genetic ancestry can be traced back to a single person, or thing, depending on if you’re an evolutionist or a creationist. By the way, if you’ll notice, by that definition of melanin, animals also suffer from the inhumanity of some having less and some having more of this evil thing, melanin.  You don’t see them hating each other over it.  Then again I forget, they’re not rational humans like us.  Melanin also seems to be tricky to spot depending on who you are.  If you have something against large quantities of melanin or minuscule quantities of melanin, you’ll see those with the amount of your discontent as being inferior to yourself.  Which I find odd since you both have it, just in different amounts.  It’s like Coke hating Diet Coke.  Weird seeing two Cokes fight.  Seems kind of childish too.  True conservatives seem to forget there’s differences in the quantity of melanin that some may possess.  Sadly, liberals are there to remind them.  Liberals also tend to see melanin that would otherwise go unnoticed.  Such as claiming anyone that voted for Bush is a racist.  Or anyone opposed to Obama is a racist.  I haven’t been able to connect the dots yet, but I’m sure a liberal can help me out.  It seems, to the liberal, that a disagreement with someone on the basis of principle or ideology is grounds for racism.  I fail to understand a statement such as “…this has everything to do with a black man in office” when, as for me, it has nothing to do with melanin.  Alan Keys shares a similar melanin content count as Obama yet, I’d have no problems with Keys in the White House.  That does bring me to another point.  According to some liberals, if a person with a high melanin count opposes Obama, that person hates himself because of his own melanin concentration.   Do what?  A black man dislikes Obama so he’s a self hating black man?  This is what I mean by liberals being able to spot melanin better than anyone.  It never seems to be an issues until a liberal brings out that card.  They have no reservations in playing it.  They seem to spot melanin from a mile away.  Which leads me to make this statement and make it with confidence:  Liberals lean more toward racism than conservatives.

There are some other reasons for the different feelings toward melanin quantities in persons and it stems from an evolutionary root.  The belief that certain peoples who’s melanin content is in polar opposite of their own are somehow lesser humans because they evolved slower than another branch of humanity.  So they became half people.   Or more historically accurate, they were three fifths of a person.  Or, worse still, in other countries they weren’t considered people at all.  All because of melanin.  That is one form of racism.  Not the only form, but one form.

The Anti-Defamation League defines racism as:

“…the hatred of one person by another — or the belief that another person is less than human — because of skin color, language, customs, place of birth or any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person.”

By that definition, of which I would agree, racism is not simply an issue that stems from only one source but can come from anyone and from anywhere to anyone and to anywhere.  Racism itself is a misleading word.  You hear racism and think “skin color” or “race.”  But by definition, it’s discrimination based on many different things.  Which explains why I dislike the word “racism” so much.  I prefer discrimination.  If you treat someone hateful because of his skin color, it’s discrimination.  If you treat someone hateful because of his language, it’s discrimination.  If you treat someone hateful because of his customs, it’s discrimination.  If you treat someone hateful because of his place of birth, it’s discrimination.

Or “her”, for you gender sensitive readers out there.

A final statement, or question if you will.  How can we move past discrimination when we still use it to promote our agendas?  If I say I’m against Obama, do not first assume I’m racist.  It’s asinine!  I am opposed to his policies.  That is why I don’t like him.  If he was white, I’d still dislike him.  His melanin is not remotely involved in my feelings toward him and this constant habit of accusing opponents of racism is discrimination itself.  Calling someone racist based on no credible evidence and on purely an opinion or hate is discrimination.  You bear false witness of someone based on “any factor that supposedly reveals the basic nature of that person.”  And why?  So you can make yourself look better and higher than the other.  It’s the highest form of self absorbed narcissism.   And those that play the race card look like idiots and continue to show how much they hate their fellow man.

It’s Finally Happened

frustrated

I’ve hit the wall and don’t seem to care much really.  It’s that fact that bothers me more than knowing I’ve hit the wall.  I could care less about actually hitting the wall but I should at least care to the point of wanting to change it.  Let me give you a little background on myself.  I’m not going to share everything about me, obviously, because quite frankly it’s none of your business.  But I do need to get some things off my chest and it seems the 0nly place I can do that is here, which is pathetic no matter how you slice it.  Yeah it’s nice to be able to sit, think, and get my thoughts together before I put them down, but still, it would be nice to have people to actually physically talk to about it.  That fact is probably my fault too.

*lies down on the couch*

No need to get into my childhood, it was about as normal as they come I guess.  I had friends, liked to play in the dirt, and enjoyed annoying the crap out of my brother.  Normal stuff.  I never really had any “issues” until middle school and they were increased throughout high school.  I never once cared what I looked like or had any self esteem problems what so ever.  That changed a bit during high school.  I was picked on mercilessly, mostly on the bus on the way to and from school.  Pushed around, smacked on, insulted, had stuff thrown at, and just generally treated with intolerable disrespect.  My self esteem took a major drop then.  Major.  I became incredibly shy.  I thought I was ugly and someone nobody wanted to be around.  Some of that still lingers today.  Ok, a lot of it still lingers.  I had few friends and the ones I did were the other “un-cool” kids.

Not much has changed since then really.  About 10 years ago, give or take a few, I started going to church on a voluntary basis but didn’t get involved a whole lot because I was still holding on to the idea that nobody cares or likes me so why get involved?   My mindset was this: If I’m going to be picked last for dodge ball, why even play?  There were guys there I thought would be cool to hang with, but never tried to make friends out of fear of being laughed at.  There were a few girls there that I thought would be great to get know, but again I was way too shy and afraid of rejection to approach them.  Previous experiences with approaching girls didn’t help matters.  I’m the goofy looking kid who’s quiet most of the time and when he does talk he tries to be funny but isn’t.  I did have a few friends for a short time.  They seemed to fade.  Even present day there are only two or three of the ones I remember still around.  I’d try to get in touch with them but how?  I just have too much doubt.  It’s been so long they won’t remember me except my name or think I’m pathetic trying to start something from nothing.

The past few years, my personality has changed a little bit.  I don’t know if that has anything to do with social networks like Twitter, Facebook, or MySpace, but it may.  I’ve gotten to know a handful of what I consider “real” friends.  Even met a few face to face.  I actually went to Las Vegas by myself one October which was completely nerve racking and totally outside my comfort zone.  I had fun, it was great.  Drove to Tennessee by myself which was a big thing too.  This year, I would have made it to Colorado for a road trip but the economy ruined that.  I’ll get to that later.  I found a new passion over the last year.  Politics.  Naturally it’s a very divisive topic as was my first passion.  Creation.  So as you can imagine, I’ve had some pretty heated debates with various people.  That’s helped my shyness to a degree.  I can talk to just about anyone, but, and I know this sounds pathetic, women still make me nervous.  I still have low enough self esteem to feel I’m just not attractive or have qualities they like.  It doesn’t help that I’m 27, unemployed, and “living in mommies basement.”  I just feel pathetic.  I watch the news or just anything on TV and hear stuff like “oh he blogs from his moms basement, get a life!”  I’m like, that’s  me.  I mean, here I am, writing a blog.  And I live with my parents, in their basement.  I don’t really “feel” like a loser but…

On the spiritual side, there was a very short part of my life where I met some very unsavory beverages which pointed me in the direction of self.  And the direction of self is always the very opposite of the direction of God.  I love God, I honestly do.  I know He has my back and there is nothing in this world that would ever make me change how I feel about Him.  I haven’t always given Him my all like I should and that little part of my life, however short it was, was still enough for me to feel like a failure in my spiritual life too.  I used to be in the Word almost every day.  Pray every day, go to church every week, study scripture, study creation, blog and share thoughts, and even possibly had a desire to teach.  Now I feel like it’s gone.  I haven’t studied scripture in quite a while, nothing on creation in a while, haven’t been to church in darn near a year, haven’t really blogged anything on my beliefs, and don’t pray anywhere near as often as I should.  I’m sorry but that is not the mark of a Christian.  Now I know I haven’t “lost” my salvation or any of that but it’s so very true that I’ve backslid.  I know what I need to do and the good thing is, I want to do what I need to do.  I know the Truth.  I know it.  And even though I hear stuff I know is not true from those around me, I still haven’t rejected Truth.  I never will.  The things I have to do will almost certainly cause me to lose the closeness I have with some family members, but in all honesty, the closeness I should have with God should come first.  If they can’t accept that then it’s time to move on.  One of my favorite movies is “The Kingdom of Heaven.”  In it, the king of Jerusalem tells Balian this:

A king may move a man, a father may claim a son. But remember that, even when those who move you be kings or men of power, your soul is in your keeping alone. When you stand before God you cannot say “but I was told by others to do thus” or that “virtue was not convenient at the time.”  This will not suffice. Remember that.

It doesn’t matter what people may tell you or how people my criticize you.  If you succumb to it and reject truth because of it, you will be held accountable for rejecting Gods Truth.  Do not be the one to deny Christ before sunrise.  Don’t do it for the sake of friendships, relationships, or anything else.  This I know and I will not sway.  I guess I could say that my faith as been the only firm ground in my life.  Besides my family, my family has always been here.  But my faith has be even stronger than that for me.  It’s really the only thing that has kept me from completely giving up.  I thank God for that.  Love of my family and love of my God.

I lived with my cousin for a while but now I’m back home.  I guess that’s a blessing in disguise, if I was out on my own I would have lost it anyway like so many others have because this past February I got laid off from work.  At first it didn’t bother me, I usually didn’t have a problem finding work.  Last time I lost a job it was 2 or 3 weeks and I was back to working again.  Well, it’s August now, and I’m still out of work.  I’ve almost exhausted all my unemployment weekly benefits and the job market is still terrible.  I search for jobs but since I have nobody to hang out with and no date or even prospects, the majority of the time I sit at home watching movies, playing games, or blogging.  It’s driving me crazy.  I’ve put on some weight which is even more detrimental to my already moderately low self esteem.

So here I am, August 18th at 4:30am, blogging about how pathetic my life is going.  I’ve hit the wall.  It’s finally happened.  I want to change things but quite frankly, if I’m going to be picked last for dodge ball, why even play?  Right?  I don’t need pity and I don’t want it.  I just want people around me I can talk to and share these things with.  People that can motivate me and inspire me.  People to encourage me in positive ways.  I want to be accepted and not ridiculed.  Accepted for who I am though, I’m not changing who I am or acting a certain way to “fit in.” I have so much to offer people.  Both in regular friendships and romantically.  I am so much more than the 27 year old living with his parents.  I want people to know that.  I’m passionate.  I’m understanding.  I’m caring.  I’m loving.  I’m dependable.  I’m sympathetic. I can be humorous but I can be serious.  I’m intellectual.  I’m spiritual.  I’m fun.  I’m someone to laugh with and a shoulder to cry on.  I’m forgiving.  I’m supportive and encouraging.  I’m strong enough to defend my beliefs and weak enough to kneel before the God I love.  I’m hard working.  I don’t give up.  I’m truthful.  I’m honest.  I’m a good communicator and a good listener.  Again, I’m passionate.  Passionate about all of the above.  Despite everything I’ve mentioned it’s those other few traits that seem to have a death hold on who I really am.  I’m shy.  I have low self esteem.  I’m lonely.  I’m unmotivated.  I am truly thankful for my family and for my God.  But it’s not quite the same.  I need friends.  And I need a partner.  In Genesis 2:18 it’s written that God said “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”  And in Genesis 2:22 Adam was given Eve.

My life is still Genesis 2:18.

Obama and his Sheep: Two-Faced Lying Hypocrites

I have no respect for Barack Obama anymore.  I had very little to begin with but as of August 6th he hit zero on my respect-o-meter.  Obama came to my state for a fund raising event in support of Creigh Deeds (D), who is running for governor this year against Bob McDonnell (R).  Obama’s speech started off sounding like he wanted unity and ended in divisiveness with him telling those that “left him the mess” to shut up and get out of the way.  I’m sorry Obama, but last time I checked I’m free to voice whatever disdain I have for you or your policies so you can take it and like it.  William Hazlitt has the perfect description of you:

A hypocrite despises those whom he deceives, but has no respect for himself. He would make a dupe of himself too, if he could.

I have less than no respect for liberals in general.  They are the most hypocritical bunch of spineless dimwits I’ve ever had the underwhelming pleasure of meeting.  Over the past few weeks republicans, democrats, and independents from all over the country have been pissed off beyond belief at our government and have been going to town hall meetings and giving their non-representing representatives a well deserved earful and how does the left respond?  By calling them fake.  Fake protesters paid off by big insurance to complain about the messiahs perfect health care plan that he hasn’t even read.  Nancy Pelosi, basking in the nonexistent rays of her own intelligence, nonchalantly stated that these are not grass roots movements, but simply AstroTurf.  She also claimed some of those crazies were showing up with swastikas, which is completely false.  Produce a legitimate photo and I’ll eat my hat.

In the words of Mad Max; Swastikas and paid protesters my big ‘ol butt!  Hey liberals, productive members of society are not built of straw!  Or handouts for that matter.  No worries, they burn the straw men and…well they don’t do anything about the handouts, except increase them.  These liberals have the nerve to complain that some of these gatherings are “organized” and some of the protesters are paid and not genuine yet, the White House was pushing hard for communities to organize during Obama’s campaign.

Through Organizing for America, Americans across the country continue to organize in their communities and stand with President Obama to build support for President Obama’s agenda and hold Washington accountable to America’s call for change.The challenges we face can’t be solved by one person alone. We need you to get involved.

Well, we’re getting involved, and now we’re being attacked for it?  Oh, and get this nugget of liberal hypocrisy, people are being offered WAGES to help get Obama’s health care plan passed.  Surprise surprise, liberals expose another double standard.  Not only that, but the very people complaining about all this have a leader that was, before his political career took off, a community organizer with ACORN.  So don’t give me any crap about “organized” protests.  Yall wrote the book.

Now, supposedly, you libs wrote the book on tolerance too.  Here’s a quote from Obama’s  inaugural address:

Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends — hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism — these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths.

One would assume someone enamored of our president and all he stands for would champion his cause by applying those very values in their own lives, right?  Lets see these values in practice from a liberal activist:

Liberal tolerance in action.  She sounds, at times, to be quite intelligent, but as Susan Sontag once said, “Intelligence is really a kind of taste: taste in ideas.

It’s no wonder liberals are always talking crap.

Liberals and Their Double Standards. v. 1.0.0

doublestandardsCheck it out, I found a farm we can send all the liberals to.  They’ll feel right at home!  Anyway, I thought to just title all blogs involving liberal double standards the same and add a version number so as to keep track.  I’ve already written a few but as I’ve noticed…it never ends.  A title all it’s own and a category all it’s own.  Congratulations liberals!  You’re gaining exposure.  The latest in a long train of intellectual abuses involved the recent Town Hall meetings that have been, at most, heated.  I mentioned just yesterday about these angry Americans and there’s been quite a bit in the news since then.  I quoted a Youtube user that said the following:

Rumor has it that many of these so called protesters are mostly insurance lobbyists and insurance execs and insurance employees all given the day off to protest. How sad. Is this what the country has come to? A bunch of brown shirts disrupting meetings! Hitler would be proud………

Well as of last night I have another quote to show you.  This one is from a Twitter retweet I received:

the only ppl pissed off are paid FreedomWorks/Prosperity For America shills! Must be nice living in your world.

First thing I thought was obvious, if I’m pissed off at the Government, what makes you think it’s nice living in my world?  It’s far from nice and getting worse.  Being aggravated and angry at the way Obama and the left are destroying America leads you to make a “must be nice” condescending remark?  Also, the fact that I’m angry, and not a paid FreedomWorks/Prosperity for America shill, makes your comment false.  Now, besides the fact that nobody from the left has yet to make a rational comment regarding the issues Americans have with Obamacare, they are also ignorantly blind of the hypocrisy of opposing  what they believe are organized and paid protests.  “Well they have pre-made signs and orchestrated chants.”  You mean, like this?

Heh, this video was actually from an ACORN supporter via Youtube.  Matching hats?  Shirts?  Signs?  Hmm??  Organized maybe?  Orchestrated maybe?  So tell me, liberal “friend”, IF the asinine claims from the left were true and all the town hall protesters (which numbered at almost 10 thousand at one location) were organized or orchestrated, why do you have a problem with it?  ACORN does it all the time and you’re fine with that.  Why is it ok for them, but not for us?  OH, I forgot…double standards.  This anger we have is manufactured, but it’s being manufactured by the poison of liberalism.  We’ve had enough, we’re angry, and we’re not going to shut up.


Reality Bites: America is getting P.O.’d

realitybitesTime for recess, representatives!  Wahoo!  You finally get some time off to speak to your constituents!  You know, the people you work for.  Time to find out how they feel you are doing.  So, how’s it going?  What’s the report card from the collective say?  Hmm?  Lets take a peek a loo shall we?  Arlen Specter?  Kathleen Sebelius?  How’d it go?

Did you happen to see the paper the first woman was holding up?  It’s the health care “diagram”.  I have a copy, this is what she was talking about when she said, “What I see is a bureaucratic nightmare, Senator.”  (click it for an enlarged view)

HCplanDiagram

What the frikk is all that mess?  Your elected officials hard at work…

Hmm, seems your people aren’t too happy.  Well, it’s not an isolated event.  People all over the country are fed up with this administration and the lefts agendas.  Of course, there are some insanely cracked leftists claiming these people at the town hall meetings are nothing more than groups being organized by corporate “puppet masters.”  Ha!  Right.  For real, this is an actual quote from a comment on Youtube regarding a video like this one:

Rumor has it that many of these so called protesters are mostly insurance lobbyists and insurance execs and insurance employees all given the day off to protest. How sad. Is this what the country has come to? A bunch of brown shirts disrupting meetings! Hitler would be proud………

For such intellectuals this borders on mental retardation.  Liberals let me ask you something: Do you ACTUALLY believe these protesters are staged actors from lobbyists and insurance execs?  You know what, better yet lets pretend that this statement is true.  How does it help their cause to SUPPORT Obamacare while claiming insurance employees are NOT in favor of it?  I don’t know maybe it’s just me but, I figure having insurance companies backing the plan would be a point of pride for the liberal, not a point of contention.  But anyway back to the original brilliant comment.  I love the first part: “Rumor has it..”  and then they proceed to finish out their thought as if it was fact.  Is this what liberals do?  Run with rumors?  Look, it’s simple, the American people are P.O.’d and the MSM and leftist elitists want to play it off as staged to give the impression that America isn’t actually against Obamacare.  These are just crazies!  These events are staged with crazies trying to give the impression that America is opposed to Obamacare!  I wonder if the polls are staged too.

Obama’s approval rating has been dropping for months.  Polls indicate that 48% of Americans think the health care system is fine with only 19% feeling it’s terrible.  A stark contrast to what the Obama administration and the leftist media is claiming but lines up perfectly with the feelings of the protesters at the town hall meetings.  Face it liberals.  The plan sucks.  Have you read it?  Would you like to?  I have a PDF copy of it.  Scroll down to page 425 I think it is.  Read about the end of life care.  Then, tell me you are ok with passing this.  Then do some soul searching, you just might find one.
