The main reason I'm having a hard time with this election is that I really only have two political beliefs:

1. No adult should ever tell another adult what to do with her body, time, and money.
2. Winners should win and losers should lose.

If an adult wants to have sex with a crack ho that he pays with his own hard earned money, he should be able to. If an adult wants to earn her money being a crack ho, she should be able to.

If people became rich by working hard, they should be able to keep their money. If people became poor by slacking off, they should remain poor.

Yeah, shit happens, sometimes winners really do lose and sometimes losers really do win, but that's life.

LIFE IS NOT FAIR!

It is not up to us to force life into a nonexistent sense of fairness.

Neither John McCain nor Barack Obama supports these ideas.

....not sure if Bob Barr, Ralph Nader, or Cynthia McKinney do either.

So, shall I vote for myself since I'm the only one I can believe in?

Why is it always up to the American taxpayers to clean up the messes of irresponsibility?

We are now in a mortgage crisis, where hundreds of thousands of people are in danger of losing their homes. These people were either steered into bad loans by banking and crediting agencies, or they made conscious decisions to live beyond their means.

Why is Uncle Sam (aka the American taxpayers) being told to bail these people out when the responsibility should lie in the banks' and credit agencies' hands? Why should I have to pay for this problem when Wells Fargo, Chase, First Union, and all those other lenders should be held accountable?

Furthermore, why am I responsible for people who have consciously chosen to live beyond their means? If you make $25,000 a year, you shouldn't be living in a $250,000 home. You should know better. You should know that a house should cost somewhere around three to four years of your income, not 10. You should know that if you can't afford at least a 10% down payment, you shouldn't be buying that house.

Yet, for the sake of argument, let's say that the average Joe doesn't know any better.

....but his lending agent should. No lending agent should look at average Joe and give him a $250,000 loan. They DO know better.

After they steer Joe into this loan that they're fully aware he can't pay, they sieze his asset and re-sell the home to some other unsuspecting Joe, leaving one to wonder if this was a premeditated, strategized method to make lenders more money.

And yet these lenders are not being held accountable one penny!

Why?

Diversity is gay.

Here's why......

In reality, diversity doesn't exist. In reality, there is never a group of friends that consists of one black, one white, one hispanic, one asian, one handicapped, one covered in tattoos, one businessman, one with 8 nipples.....NEVER!

In the real world, races aren't equal. In most places, the lighter your skin, the better, but not where I live. In my city, being white is a punishment. You can't get a job if you're white. You can't get good service if you're white. You can't stand up for yourself and your beliefs if you're white. You're an instant racist if you're white.

Walk into any government office, NONE of the employees are white. Look at any job ad, "Minorities are encouraged to apply," meaning, "Whitey need not apply." Watch the news, none of the reporters or subjects are white.

Yet, this is somehow good? It's good because my city has "diversity?"

But, the truth is the real racism exists within the communities of non-whites. Japanese hate Chinese. Light skinned blacks hate dark skinned blacks. Non-Mexican hispanics hate Mexicans. How do I know? THEY'VE TOLD ME. Several different people in all of these groups have told me...and not the way you think.

It's never a dark skinned woman telling me, "My family treats me badly because my skin is dark, but they treat my sister well because her skin is light." It's a light skinned woman telling me, "Yeah, we don't like my little sister...she's so dark."

It's never a Mexican telling me, "Everyone looks down on us." It's a woman from El Salvador and a man from Puerto Rico saying, "Mexicans are so stupid and their Spanish sounds awful. It's like the Mexican hat dance every time they talk."

It's never Chinese telling me, "Japanese people treat us like we're low class." It's Japanese telling me, "Oh, the Chinese are so dirty and uneducated and have such bad fashion."

Oh, but I'm white, so I must just be making this all up.

Diversity is a lie....a sham....a con-art. No one likes diversity except a bunch of lying hippies who PRETEND to like it...and they only like it because other hippies like them told them that they should.

So now a story is supposed to be more interesting, a photograph is supposed to be more beautiful, and a univeristy is supposed to be more credible only if they all include equal amounts of people of all colors.

The only thing I can't figure out is....why does it seem like everything is "Equal Opportunity" until a non-white person takes over?

What's being done to the tobacco companies is bonafide BULLSHIT!

You can argue that cigarettes are killers, but what you can't argue is the simple fact that more Americans die every year from obesity related issues than they do of tobacco related issues....yet I don't see McDonald's, KFC, Burger King, Mars, Frito Lay, Nestle, General Mills, Coca-Cola, Land-O-Lakes, Oscar Meyer, Boar's Head, or any other major food comapnies being placed under regulation for selling foods that will kill you.

The issues with the tobacco companies are nothing but a bunch of pro-socialist propaganda to get us all waving Marxist flags to tell the government, "SAVE US FROM OURSELVES!"

Again and again, we're sending messages to the government saying, "We're too weak to live with freedom. Please, take it away so we can be safe from ourselves."

And the saddest thing of all is that most people seem ok with this. It's fine to rape the constitution. It's fine to take away some people's rights so that SUPPOSEDLY some other people have it better off. It's ok for Uncle Sam to make decisions for us. It's ok for us to be voluntarily deaf, dumb, and blind, because we know that Uncle Sam will be there to guide us wherever he wants us to go.

Imagine there's no.......difference

America is the most exclusive club in the world. You have to be born in, or work extremely hard to get in. We all pay dues, called taxes. Members have amazing social and financial benefits, one of them being the American dollar. Another is that you have an eternally forgiving mother. If you get into trouble somewhere in the world, even if it's your own fault, we'll come get you and take care of you.

Why are we so exclusive? Because we SHOULD be. Those lucky enough to be born in and those who have worked hard enough to get in should be proud of their membership. They shouldn't be willing to give away what they've worked for or been blessed with to anyone who wants to join.

Everyone wants to heal the world, uplift the fallen, give to the tired, poor, huddled masses.....but the simple, cold truth is if we give away membership to anyone who wants it, particularly those who don't pay for it, then our club won't be a very nice place.

When you really sit and think about it, a world where everyone is truly equal is a nightmare.

According to this study, illegals are not a burden on healthcare. However, I don't like how this study only compares Hispanics.

This study says that illegal Hispanics go to doctors a lot less than legal Hispanics. But what does that mean to society? Do legal Hispanics go to the doctor the same amount as everyone else?

And why is this only mostly about Mexicans? Provided, according to this study, about half of the illegals are from Mexico....what about the other illegals? Why do we only seem to care about what the illegal Mexicans are doing? There are other law breakers too. Why aren't we finding out about them?

AND......

Whether the illegals go to the doctor once a year or once a decade, I still don't want to pay for it. So why is it being played up like that? Are we supposed to wait until they ARE a burden?

The XXVIII Amendment: Your right not to be offended.

Is it just me, or has the idea that "you have the right not to be offended" has usurped all political and social power in the United States?

Read more...Collapse )

I'm frightened that we're letting people believe, "You are too weak to live with freedom. You're too weak to make your own decisions to change channels, boycott stores, and ignore what other people say. So we're going to take away everything that offends you so that you can live in peace."

That does not sound like a free country to me.
