FLAG BURNING

September 10, 2015

There are a lot of memes about beating up somebody burning the flag or something to that effect. People, I do not like our national symbol being defaced any more than the next person. That said, you have the Constitutional right to do those things. The Constitution is the basis for all of our freedoms. You can’t pick and choose which ones you want to follow. It is all or nothing. Kim Davis is in trouble for ignoring the rights of others. Do you want to become another Kim Davis?  The Constitution is the Constitution, despite what Obama has been doing to ignore it. Some ass-hole wants to burn the flag? That is his right. Of course, if he violates some zoning law in the process, it is your right to call the police and have his ass arrested, too.

KIM DAVIS – BIG FAT BIGOT

September 9, 2015

I find myself a bit concerned over how many people actually support this reprehensible individual. “But she is standing up for her beliefs! She shouldn’t go to jail for that!” Bullshit. She defied a court order. She for damned sure should go to jail for that.

Lets consider the long term effects of what this bigot is doing. She cannot in good conscious sign marriage licenses for gays. 50 years ago she would make the same argument against signing mixed marriage licenses. 70 years ago she would have been working for the Nazis who share her sense of right and wrong.

But I digress. If she wins out over common sense and decency and is allowed to continue her ignorant ways, then that means others can do the same. Vegans can refuse to sign hunting and fishing licenses as this violates their conscience. The Catholic pharmacists can refuse to sell you condoms. The Muslim cashier can refuse to ring up your booze and bacon. The atheist can refuse to sell you Christmas supplies. And let us not forget the anti-gun crowd who could refuse to sell you ammunition. I could go on but I hope I have made my point.

Freedom of religion also means freedom FROM religion. Your religion is just that; YOUR religion. You do not have the right to force anybody else to adhere to your belief system. Or would you like to see Muslims force you to wear a burka, only eat halal foods and make you get rid of your unclean dogs?

It is easy to applaud somebody when they deny somebody else their rights when you agree with them, but what about when you are the target of these rights denials? Let anybody get away with something like this and sooner or later it will be your turn to be targeted.

Religion is no defense against not doing your job or defying the law of the land. If what you are required to do is offensive to you, QUIT and get a different job. There are laws against discrimination in this country and refusing to sign a marriage license because it “offends” you is discrimination.

Windows 10 — More Crap

September 3, 2015

After the unmitigated disaster of Windows 8, Microsoft tried to make nice with Win 10. I have tried it. Yes, the start button is back. And it opens up a bunch of shit. S.H.I.T!

What the hell is wrong with Microsoft? Win 7 was a decent interface. Why screw it up? Because Microsoft thinks if it doesn’t look completely different, you won’t think it is any good. So now you have to celebrate the removal of Win 8 with a gawd-awful replacement that only looks good to people who suffered through Win 8.

It is enough to push me into becoming a Mac user.
