The world is, yet again, going to hell because of the ridiculous and over-indulged “sensibilities” of the bleeding heart, politically correct liberal left.
Being the practical individual I am, I am most concerned with how America can restore our country!
The simplest answer involves a three-pronged approach:
1. Educate everyone. Despite the media’s best attempts to keep the masses in the leftist dark, the Internet has provided a grand pathway to sway the tide. We the People, as I collectively call all Americans who support and defend the Constitution, have made very good use of the Internet over the last eight years doing just that. We didn’t do enough to sway the 2012 elections, but with 60% of conservatives sitting on their butts instead of voting in the polls.. That’s another story. In the meantime, Nielsen ratings for mainstream media are down across the board as Americans grow more disillusioned, waking up one after another to the reality that idealism doesn’t put food on the table. The fact that a number of well-known Democrats have pledge their support for Trump, by far the most Constitutionally-oriented GOP candidate, reflects the change of America’s heart, even among the left.
2. Use key Constitutional points such as those listed in the Bill of Rights as a bellwether. If candidates haven’t fully supported the Constitution as it’s written, then we cannot reasonably expect them to adhere to their oaths of office to “support and defend the Constitution.” Such candidates should never be allowed to hold public office. If they’re currently in office, vote them out. If they’re aspiring to office, use these bellwethers as a score card and vote only for those candidates whose track record is most closely aligned with the Constitution.
3. Aggressively pull the rug out from beneath those who believe otherwise, revealing their folly for all to see in a clear, concise, easily understood manner. Some of these people are idiots, while others are brilliant (aside from their political discombobulations). Some actually believe what they’re saying, either out of idealism or ignorance, while others push the mantra in support of their own and/or certain collective agendas. Regardless, their efforts have proven hugely damaging to our country, and exercising the first of our Bill of Rights en masse is the most effective way to pull the rug out from beneath them. Exercising the second of our Bill of Rights en masse is the most effective way of protecting the rest of our rights, not to mention life, limb, and property, against both ordinary criminals as well as extraordinary criminals such as the seven militants who murdered 129 Parisians as of last count. To date, they and others like them have murdered more than 270 million people over the last 1,400 years. That’s 528 people per day, and more than nine times the total death toll racked up by Stalin and Hitler combined.
Back to the good, old, U.S. of A., we’re not currently headed down a viable long-term road, at least not collectively. Some states have bucked the trend, and they’re doing just fine.
In yet another blitheringly idiotic attempt to squash the First Amendment’s protections for the free exercise of religion, the Bremerteron School District told a coach he was not allowed to pray…
…AFTER THE END OF THE GAME.
Thankfully, a good, savvy lawyer had the presence of mind to note, “It is a violation of the First Amendment, and other federal laws, to prohibit Coach Joe from going out on the field and praying after the end of the game.”
We need to take our country back from ignorant people like Ken Aulgur who said, “It’s a downer to my daughter who’s one of the cheerleaders here, ’cause its not about the fun of Homecoming and the dance and everything else.”
Gee, Aulgur, THINK. Your daughter wouldn’t HAVE a Homecoming dance “and everything else” if it weren’t for the prayer of righteous men and women who fought and died to establish and preserve your freedoms. Prayer has been a VITAL component of the religious faith upon which this country was founded and maintained. It’s at the base of all its freedoms, which YOU and your daughter enjoy to this very day. Yet you ignorantly sit there and say, “It’s a downer.”
Really, Aulgur? Here’s a thought: YOU’RE a downer, literally, when you attempt to bring down the freedoms that make our country great.
Would you rather live in a faithless society where social strata, caste systems, and slavery is the norm? Not I. Where the right to a free trial is a myth, and the government can bust down your doors any time it wants? Not I. How much more of a downer would that be for you?
No thank you, Aulgur! You’re one of the same class of sheep Hitler lead to the slaughter in Germany, the ones who went willingly. NO WAY I’m going to sympathize with your brain-dead position that praying after the game is “going to the extreme.”
YOU’RE the extreme – blight, that is, on American principles and values.
This veteran will keep my FAITH, and I will continue to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same.” I will continue to back our First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights. They didn’t give us our freedoms. God did that, which is one of the reasons WHY we pray, for Thanksgiving, not only for our freedoms, but for the fact that none of the boys were injured during the game.
The First Amendment does, however, protect our freedoms, including the free exercise of Joe’s religion right alongside your freedom of speech. If you want to disparage Joe’s freedom to exercise his religion, I strongly suggest you start by giving up your own freedoms and SHUT THE HELL UP. If you believe that’s not fair, well, you’re right. It would not be fair. Neither is it fair for you to keep blabbering your mouth on CNN while disparaging Coach Joe his own right to freely practice his religion as protected in the same amendment that protects your freedom of speech.
The headlines are reading, “Ham Sandwiches and Sausage Rolls May Be Banned from Office Kitchens for Being Offensive.”
I’m sorry, but I find the very idea of this nonsense offensive, not to mention a direct violation of my Constitutional rights.
First, this is America, not Nazi Germany. I’ll eat anything I please. Our nation is all about freedom, not restriction.
Second, I will not cow-tow to a mindless cult that calls itself a “religion” while continuing to slaughter hundreds of millions of my fellow humans in the name of Allah (Satan) at an ever-increasing pace.
The only restrictions we have — or ever should have — in the United States of America involve measurable physical and financial harm. Our courts have repeatedly ruled that “offenses” exist largely, if not only, in the eye of the beholder, and that the individual accused of causing an offense is not responsible. It’s up to the beholder to not be offended, particularly when I exercise my freedom of speech under the First Amendment to our Constitution by eating a ham sandwich. No one has a “right” to use their being offended as an excuse to force other people to change their behavior.
Decency laws are a different matter, which is why 99% of America’s beaches remain “swimsuits required.”
Do we need a “Right to Exercise Our Constitutional Rights” bill? No, as that would be absurd. We might, however, require a “Freedoms in the Workplace” bill that prohibits employers from banning certain foods just because those foods might “offend” someone.
In fact, I seem to recall my doctor telling me that I need to continue eating ham sandwiches and sausage for my health. Yes, yes… I’m reasonably sure he mentioned that a while back…
If someone is allergic to peanut butter, it’s up to them to bring suitable food from home in order to prevent contact with food items containing peanuts.
In precisely the same vein, if someone is offended by ham sandwiches and sausage rolls, it’s up to them to bring suitable food from home in order to prevent contact with food items containing pork.
In closing, I strongly encourage you and other members of Congress to resist the severely biased drivel that comes from the “interfaith” group CoExist House. It’s largely a pro-Islamic group around with a few overly politically correct and misguided individuals have aligned themselves. They have absolutely zero qualms about trampling our Constitutional rights through the advancement of their highly anti-American agenda.
