Some thoughts

I’m back. I know it’s been a while, but between TDY and jetlag, and work, and kids, and dog, and boyfriend, and more work… well you know! Heck I work two jobs already just to make ends meet. I suppose I’ll continue working two jobs to ensure that Sandra Fluke’s vagina is properly cared for… Benefits… they’re important, you know!

It seems like every time I sat down to write, I got distracted by a bright, shiny object, and then promptly forgot what I was going to write about. I’m wondering if it’s early Alzheimers or some other malady for which I should make the government pay. I’m not sleeping, but that may be residual jetlag. I have no idea why it’s taking so long to adjust, but really… all I want to do is sleep. I’ve been sleeping a lot since getting back last Friday.

So, election has come and gone. I know there’s genuine disappointment out there, but what did you people expect? Mittens’ victory in the primaries was all but predetermined. The GOP establishment practically orgasmed all over itself at the prospect of letting Mittens have his turn (and after letting McShitstain have his the last time around). Hell, Romney didn’t even participate in the initial primary debates and didn’t make his intention to run for President official, until later, even though we all knew that he’d been running since 2006. And like good sheeple, you all clung to Romney in the primaries as the GOP foisted that mediocrity upon us. And like good sheeple you accepted the argument that we just need to elect Mittens for a chance to regroup and reverse the damage caused by the current crop of shit in Washington, because voting for anything but the RINO is unconscionable and will give Obama another four years. The GOP supported him because he was the spit and polish guy. They tried to pander to the lowest common denominator, and you wound up with a guy whom the majority of its supporters considered the “hold your nose” candidate.

Where did that get you?

What did you expect?

The GOP saw that most Americans actually opposed ObamaCare, and they foisted a candidate upon us who invented the fucking concept and tried to pass him off as the candidate who would repeal it. They gave us a candidate who thinks banning so-called “assault” weapons is cool, and whose views on abortion change with the wind.

What. Did. You. Expect?

So, no, I wasn’t surprised that the incumbent won last night. The choice was between big government and bigger government, and it’s not surprising that the majority of the public chose bigger government. After all, if you’re going to vote yourself bennies at others’ expense, you want as many as possible, and the current crop of politicians simply offered more.

I’m not going to curse you or yell at you or say “I told you so!” The disappointment I’m seeing around me is punishment enough.

Meanwhile… I have to say that last night’s reactions on Facebook bordered on creepy.

YEAH I GET TO KEEP ALL MY BENEFITS AND GET SOME MORE!!!

Thank you G-d!!!!!!!!!

Enjoying watching Fox News having to say Obama has been reelected.

Others were crying… CRYING with joy at the reelection of their Messiah! Seriously, people? He’s a politician! Get over yourselves!

And this morning, Demotard hate fest began.

All our generation is saying about this whole election is .. Obama ! Fuck white people and Romney.. Like there’s more to it fuckers.

OBAMA WON FUCK WHITE PEOPLE—

How post-racial of you, fucktards! How tolerant and classy!

Meanwhile, my son mentions the words “illegal alien” in a tweet, and he gets a torrent of hate and physical threats! THREATS! And accusations of racism.

Here’s a clue, shitbags – immigration status has nothing to do with race! Nothing. It has everything to do with the fact that you either entered this country illegally, or have overstayed your visa. And while you claim to love this country and want to become its citizen, your first act is to violate this country’s laws! I don’t give a fuck WHAT race you are. Got it?

I will say I saw quite a few Obama supporters celebrate and then go on to promote a semblance of unity.

But not our resident moonbat Demofellator Chris Matthews, whose partisan hackery prompted him to celebrate the deaths of hundreds of people in last week’s superstorm. He’s SO glad we had that storm, because it allowed the Lightbringer to win the election!

Captain Legthrill strikes again! Even Rachel Maddow tried to stop the torrent of spew. I’m imagining her sitting there kicking Matthews’ leg under the desk.

The GOP managed to retain the House, but the Senate is still firmly in Harry Reid’s deathgrip, and the lying sack of leftist shit is wasting no time in his efforts to shut up any conservative opposition to his petty little tyranny.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Wednesday that he will try to push through a change to Senate rules that would limit the GOP’s ability to filibuster bills.

Speaking in the wake of Tuesday’s election, which boosted Senate Democrats’ numbers slightly, Mr. Reid said he won’t end filibusters altogether but that the rules need to change so that the minority party cannot use the legislative blocking tool as often.

“I think that the rules have been abused and that we’re going to work to change them,” he told reporters. “Were not going to do away with the filibuster but we’re going to make the Senate a more meaningful place.”

Republicans, who have 47 of the chamber’s 100 seats in this current Congress, have repeatedly used that strong minority to block parts of President Obama’s agenda on everything from added stimulus spending to his judicial picks.

A filibuster takes 60 senators to overcome it.

Not like the left hasn’t used filibusters in the past (especially to kill the Civil Rights Act – forget that little fact, Demotards?), but now they’re all about changing it.

And by the way, a special shout-out to Todd Akin who gets the Festering Asswart of the Fucking Year award for refusing to go away like a stubborn fungal infection and ensuring a GOP loss to one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country with his stupid “legitimate rape” comments.

A note to Democrats: I can assure you that the vast majority of Republicans is not this bugfuck crazy! Most are fairly normal human beings. If you don’t want to be judged by the batshit moonbattery of Chris Matthews, don’t judge most Republicans by the sheer douchebaggery of Akin.

And a note about me: I consider myself a libertarian, but I hardly agree with libertarians on everything.

I support a strong national defense, and I do believe that sometimes preemptive military action is necessary.

I do not believe in nation-building. Not our job.

I support the right of consenting adults to make a legal commitment to one another in marriage, provided no church is FORCED to perform the ceremony and no one’s rights are violated.

I want a small federal government, returned to its constitutional function.

I want government agencies such as HUD, Department of Education, DHS, Department of Labor and a plethora of other government agencies too lengthy to list here gone. How’s THAT for a real plan to cut spending?

I don’t give a rat’s ass about what kind of chemical you put in your body, but if you get behind the wheel of a car or hurt others, I want you to die in prison.

No, health care is not a right. It is a service. It is provided by someone – someone who has worked his or her ass off to get the training, skills and expertise to be able to help you – and they shouldn’t be forced to provide said service, merely because you think you’re entitled to the fruits of someone else’s labor free of charge.

No, I’m not responsible for you. You’re responsible for you. If you can’t afford something you need, it is not my responsibility to provide it for you, although I’m glad to help you out when I can, but NOT at the point of a government gun.

It is not the government’s money. It’s your money. The government doesn’t make money (and no, printing of more dollar bills by TheBenBernank doesn’t count) – it appropriates it.

My views on abortion are my own.

I have all the respect for people of faith, but you try and force your faith down my throat, and you’ll find a fist down yours.

No, I don’t want illegal aliens here, working for cash under the table, sending remittances back to their home countries, violating this nation’s immigration laws, putting a strain on our infrastructure and not paying for it. No, you’re not undocumented workers. You’re illegal aliens. You are here illegally. Get used to the idea. I came here legally, and my parents jumped through a myriad of hoops just to earn the right to call themselves citizens. They now help others do the same. Legally. I’m offended by your very presence here.

No, I don’t believe in affirmative action. I believe women, African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians and every other minority are perfectly capable of achieving great heights on their own merits – without politicians treating them like pet retards who need their help. Affirmative action is insulting. It assumes minorities can’t make it on their own. If I was a minority, I’d be downright offended!

I believe discrimination is a right. Sometimes it takes on odious forms, such as racism, but I believe the market will take care of those ignorant assholes who still consider themselves superior by virtue of the color of their skin. Discrimination still exists, but forcing people to do the right thing at the point of a government gun doesn’t make it better.

I am not a racist. Disagreeing with the current president doesn’t make me racist. It makes me a thinking, rational human being exercising the right to speak out against policies with which I disagree. I find racism abhorrent. I think Hank Johnson’s “capsizing Guam” remark is fucktard-level stupid, and it has nothing to do with his race. I think Jesse Jackson is a race-baiting swine, and it has nothing to do with the fact that he’s black.

I assess the current president is a socialist.

I assess that evolution is a fact.

I absolutely promote vaccination!

I assess that anthropogenic global warming is not a proven fact, and while climate change is, I haven’t seen proof that human achievement is somehow destroying the universe, and I’m not going to work to destroy progress merely because AlGore says so. When it comes to recycling, I’m right here:

This does not make me racist, evil, heartless, ignorant or any other adjective you want to throw my way. It does not make me a bitter conservative or a Bible clinger. If you don’t like what I’ve said here, feel free to take a bloody hike! I’m not here for your damn welfare.

Happy four more years.

I should add that my views on gun control should be pretty clear to anyone who reads this blog, but just in case… The Constitution says “shall not be infringed.” Period.

  2. Welcome back, Nicki. I’ve missed you. Just so’s ya know: I agree with about 95% of what you had to say here. As you know, I did not like any of the choices we were handed. And we’ve already had this philosophical discussion. I hope the US can survive the next 4 years. Now that it’s all over, I still want to meet you in person. 🙂 I’ll get those photos together to show you.

  4. Heya Nicki,

    “I assess that evolution is a fact.”

    Okay, I’m not going to argue with you whether evolution is a fact, or try to convince you one way or another. Instead, I’m going to ask you a simple question:

    So what? What’s the value of teaching evolution to anybody below college level?

    1. You’re asking what is the value of teaching science to American kids? American kids who are light years behind the rest of the world in science? I would think that is self-explanatory.

    2. Because it’s a major biological theory and should be covered as part of an overview of biology. After that we could debate when and how much should be part of a syllabus.

      There should be a dividing line. Theories and facts about physics, biology and chemistry should covered under science. More advanced lessions should include information on where the theories break down. Articles (is that the correct term?) that require faith such as intelligent design, young and old earth creationism should be covered under religious education. An interesting question is “where in the syllabus should we look at the points of contact between science and religion?”

      1. Well public schools don’t have religious education so the public school kids wind up fairly ignorant on that topic, while parochial school kids go about life thinking the earth is only a few thousand years old. Silly, really.

    3. Nicki,

      No, I’m not asking about SCIENCE. I’m asking about Evolution. You can’t teach the scientific method, which is the heart of science, using evolution in K-12. What sort of experiments can you run? Evolution, as taught in K-12 is simply story telling. It is HISTORY. Mind you, I love history, so much so that I originally went to college with the intent of coming out a history teacher. So why teach THIS history?

      If you want to teach science and really get kids interested AND establish a foundation in real science (not storytelling), then you go for physics, chemistry, and maybe some biology. Most important, you have kids DO things. Amazingly, the things one can learn from physics (become a top notch pool shark, the simple basics of electricity,cooking, etc), chemistry (blow stuff up, make goop, cooking, etc) and biology (raising plants, avoiding dysentry, cooking, etc) is of far, far more use than knowing evolutionary theory.

      In fact, I challenge you to identify some value for the average person to know any evolutionary theory.

      btw, there’s no way to reply directly to you, so forgive me for looking crazy and replying to myself. 🙂

      1. Evolution IS science. It is sound scientific theory that has not been disproven. Kids need to read about science as science – how the theory was developed, how it has stood up to experimentation over the years, what scientific research has been performed… There has been plenty.

        Reading about science doesn’t make it history. It makes it reading about science.

  5. Welcome back! Will we hear anything of your travels?

    I find myself in considerable agreement with your views. I especially agree with the bit on affirmative action, although that is purely theoretical for me as I have managed to avoid any contact with it (as far as I know) here in the UK.

  6. We have some affirmative action in the UK, but as I am privately employed in a company that does not interact with the government, we manage to avoid it.

    I’ve taken a look at the DoJ story (https://thelibertyzone.wordpress.com/2012/08/23/justice-department-seeks/). OMG! At least they say that it is only a requirement to interview, not to employ.

    I used to know a blind girl who could swear for a minute straight and not repeat a language. I tried to persuade her to get qualified as a verbal only translator. Alas, she lacked the confidence.

    2. I used to work for a private company that had to fill out paperwork for the fedgov every few months about whom it hired, whom it interviewed, the candidate’s race, and why they were or weren’t hired. I’m sure that was all kinds of awesome.

      We didn’t hire any midgets, though. I’m sure someone had to pay a fine. 😉

  7. Public schools don’t teach about religions!? No wonder there are certain stereotypes about people from the US being ignorant about other religions.

    I went to what I guess you would call a parochial school. It was an Anglican school (ages 7-11). Even there, we had exposure to other religions, primarily Islam from what I remember. This was a mostly white school with 1 Muslim boy, 1 Sikh boy and 1 Sikh girl in my year who did not attend the RE lessons. Apart from that, there was little comparitive theology, something I felt could be improved. After all, if I wanted detailed knowledge of Christianity, there was always Sunday school (which I did attend at those ages).

    Interestingly enough, I don’t recall anything about young Earth creationism being taught either at the Anglican school or the Methodist Sunday school…
