Remember that we who work and have taxes taken from us by force are the ones paying for this lazy individual.  I want a refund.  Don’t forget, we will still be paying this individual until the day he dies.  I’m all for removing pensions from government jobs.  This goes double for elected positions.  They can save and invest for a retirement just like the working folk who are taxed to support them.  It’s way past time to make this change.

just a couple of excerpts:

Note what they didn’t do? They didn’t actually read the sites to verify they were “hate sites.”…

If the SPLC and ADL, with their (growing) list of “hate groups” are going to be the arbiter for approved online speech, we have reached a very scary place in this country. It will be the end of the Internet as we know it and America will be no better than totalitarian China and N. Korea.

A statue is down, a person is dead and several injured.  It is known that the officials didn’t intervene during the removal of the statue, but now have arrested some suspects.  I’m thinking the arrests are to make the government officials look good in light of the travesty occurring and their actions during the same.  What I would like to know to salve my cynicism regarding officials trying to play it both ways is: When is the statue going to be fixed and replaced?

This month has been intense.  Both spouseinbox and I have physical problems awaiting treatment and kidinbox has now been observed to have potential blood sugar problems.  A live bedbug was found in the hallway while we are still working on cleaning the house to get rid of those things.  When feeling a bit overwhelmed, I had a patient call noting death of a relative and malignant cancer in another.  Another associate sent an email with request for prayer as a spouse had stage 4 renal carcinoma.  Between these and other things heard it occurred to me that everyone is having problems.  Only the type and severity differ.  There is a sentence in the Bible, “Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”  That seems so true.  There is enough rough stuff happening right now, we don’t need to borrow from either our neighbors, or tomorrow.  Let’s consider today and in the midst of issues say, “this is the day that the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  That stated, I am glad to be here working on music projects, to have spouseinbox helping with those projects.  I am glad to have a job with good working coworkers.  We have a wonderful church family as well.

As you could probably tell from the previous post, I went momma bear on that story.  After some reflection, I came to a realization that was much more troubling.  Let me start with Batman.  I like old movies and believe they still hold the best characters and story lines.  Batman would receive a call from the commissioner that there was a bad guy needing apprehension.  Task done, the bad guy would see vertical grey lines in his future.  This was a quiet storyline in each of the tales.  Batman would do his best to meet the challenge, and the bad guy would see bars.  The same was in the radio show of the Lone Ranger.  He was a bit more explicit though.  The Lone Ranger stated his purpose was to help law enforcement establish the law.  Superman also delivered the bad guy to jail.  It was quite a break with tradition to have the bad guy in the movie die.  That happened in the ’80’s.  I noted the difference then.  For decades, the quiet push was to have law enforcement establish the law and everyone was bound by that law.  Order was known to exist when everyone was abiding by the law.

What happened prior to the proliferation of lawmen?  How were people to protect themselves?  We had the second amendment.  It isn’t a hunting clause.  It is a self-protection recognition.  It has been noted to apply to protection against government and is properly know to exist in that realm.  It is also to exist in the realm of self-protection.  The individual was charged with ability to protect him or herself.  After all, there were no police to assist.  There was no 50 minute for response to a call.  There was no place to call except oneself and maybe a neighbor.

Once it is known that the law will not be protected or enforced by the government, why should anyone trust in either?  This concept removes the decades of learning to rely on application of the law and instructs the citizen that justice is only found if done by oneself.  If that concept reverberates through society, the action by this judge will have much grander results than anyone can vision.  Note, I do not use the term “grander” in the positive sense of a Paramount Picture, but in the scale term it generates.  If one captures a parasite in the act of evil and pins them to the ground, what now will be their consideration?  Hold them for a justice system that will not provide any due course for their actions, let them go to keep practicing evil, or administer vigilante justice on the spot.  With the previously noted action, this judge has tilted the scales towards one of those above options.   What is left for wonder is if this concept and potential for chaos was at the root of the decision.

The liberals can cry and scream all they like, but the fact of the matter is that most refugees come from Islamic countries, where women are treated like property, and in some cases have even less rights than animals.

So, when they come here, it’s no surprise that they treat our women with absolute contempt.

From here.  h/t

It used to be the concept that one came to the United States to become part of our culture.  That is no longer the fact.  We are the body on which the parasites feed.  Once all has been consumed, we will be no more.  It’s time we start calling the parasites what they are and stop feeding them or letting them on our shores.  The judge which aides and abeds this kind of behavior needs to be removed, at the least, or provided the apt punishment removed from the perpetrators.  If all cultures are equal, which they aren’t, that means ours is just as valid as the squalor from which the parasites come.  I am an American and am proud of that fact and note that we as a country, originally founded, produced the greatest gains for humanity ever dreamed.  We need judges who respect our culture and protect our innocent.  Period.

The cats have been more regular about using the automated cat pan (Cat Genie) and I noted to spouseinbox that there was something missing in the bathroom.  We didn’t have the cat urine smell which used to hang there awaiting anyone entering the door.  My latest issue, though, is trying to get the unit to cycle at another time except O-dark-thirty.  I prefer to be sleeping at that hour.  I started a third cycle, so theoretically it will cycle every 8 hours and hopefully this will eliminate the waking cycle for me.  I pressed the start button to hopefully establish the new times and Jake is studiously sitting on the cabinet watching his poop get washed out of the litter.  He has more patience than me.  Maybe he is more easily entertained.
