Love the First Amendment. It helps us spot the assholes from a safe distance.

Forget the high-minded principles of our Founding Fathers, kiddies. In the real world, letting the fascists, totalitarians, morons, psychopa...

The enemy is us.

From someone who may or may not be Czech via Ollie's Common Sense blog via Shine from Yahoo!:

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting an inexperienced man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama Presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their President. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America . Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their President."

Glenn Beck mentioned this on the radio this morning and then, as usual, got it about half right. Beck said the problem is people who don't have a "pole star" [Maybe "North Star" would be better, but that's probably the Boy Scout in me talking.] - something fixed to let them know when they stray off the straight and narrow. Then, a couple of minutes later, he's babbling about how all the folks from all the "denominations" must stick together to withstand the coming times of trials.

The part he got right is the lack of a moral compass, or more precisely, the heretical notion that each individual gets to create his own moral compass. Just go back two posts and see that great "fundamentalist Christian" Pat Robertson say it's okay to abandon your wife if she has a certain class of disease.

You can't produce good people if your definition of good shifts every time someone wants it to. We Catholics have been trying to tell you poor bastards this for several hundred years now.

About Me

First of all, the word is SEX, not GENDER. If you are ever tempted to use the word GENDER, don't. The word is SEX! SEX! SEX! SEX! For example: "My sex is male." is correct. "My gender is male." means nothing. Look it up. What kind of sick neo-Puritan nonsense is this? Idiot left-fascists, get your blood-soaked paws off the English language. Hence I am choosing "male" under protest.
