The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

Subtle Lies

Words have meanings… Really! I mean it. I don’t mean this in some kind of “existential galactic bran muffin” way. Not in some bimbo teenager “like “whatever”” kind of way. I mean words really have meanings. Some have pretty much one full meaning. Take “sun” as an example. It’s pretty much what it is. Some have more than one meaning. Take “iron”. it’s a noun, verb, element, appliance, slang for weapon. Some words have less than a full meaning. “Whachamacallit” comes to mind but I don’t think I spelled it right. Sometimes, the less of a meaning a word has, the more words it takes to describe it. I’m gonna leave “Whachamacallit” alone. But words have meanings and the only reason you are staring at this is because you are digesting the meaning that I am transmitting. If I don’t transmit effectively and you don’t receive effectively, the process is useless. Words have to mean things or they become useless.

That’s the prologue. Words mean things. This is just to set us up. I take notice of slogans and bumper stickers that misuse words. Today we’ll talk about a couple of them. Here’s a favorite: “Re-defeat Bush”. This is meant to remind liberals that they sued in three counties in Florida to get votes in those counties special consideration over votes in the other 50 counties, while employing lawyers to challenge military absentee ballots. The credo “count only the votes that will help us win” was the watchword of the day. They seem to think there was virtue in this because their candidate was ahead in the popular vote. A hint for bearers of this bumper sticker: there’s a little document called The Constitution of the United States of America that gives pretty clear instruction on how presidential succession is determined. Popular vote ain’t in the rules. Get over it. Your boy was never in the lead and 10,000 people in the conservative Florida panhandle didn’t vote because they were told that Gore won FL an hour before the polls closed in the central time zone. Gore was never in the lead after all the polls closed.
Remember how Gore won NM by 236? Bush won the first count. But Gore was never ahead in FL. But be happy, you got your way. If 2000 was a defeat for Bush, 2004 was a re-defeat. Gore – Kerry, what’s the difference?
Another one is “Hate is not a family value”. This one presupposes that anyone that disapproves of the behaviors such as child molestation, abortion, promiscuity, lasciviousness, moral ambiguity or pornography is consumed and driven by some deep and bitter rage, and that every waking moment is a voyage on a sea of hatred toward gays, lesbians, transvestites and criminals.
The truth is that discrimination is a family value. I’m sure that Rosie O’Donnell doesn’t want her adopted children hanging out with some gun totin’, squirrell huntin’, cotton-eyed joe while they go four wheelin’ in their pick-up trucks. Rosie O’Donnell discriminates. Or does she hate? I’m confused. As we attempt to transfer to our children the things that we believe will set them up for success and happiness. We teach them to discriminate. I don’t want thieves in my house. I disapprove of the behavior. I discriminate in allowing access to my property and my family. That is not hate.
It is also known that anti-gun activist Rosie has a gun totin” bodyguard that acts to discriminate in allowing access to her property and family. Hey Rosie, is that hate or is it your family values?
I disapprove of the gay, lesbian, transvestite, transgender agenda. I have seen the statistical data on the physical and mental health consequences of the associated lifestyles. I’m also aware of the agenda of such radical elements as NAMBLA. If same sex couples want to play together, It’s probably not my business as long as they don’t want me to fund the AIDS research and treatment, the psychiatric care, the sex change operations or the government subsidies for “his” and “his” matching spank-me costumes. But I want to opt out of Medicare if I have to pay for the risky behaviors of others. That’s my discrimination. I don’t want to pay for Robert Downey Jr's next detox either.
I believe that porn is damaging. I think that Michael Jackson is screwed up because he was abused and then he was sheltered in a “progressive” permissive environment. I think Elvis would have lived a lot longer without the drugs. Behaviors are the ultimate arbiters of success and failure. I discriminate between behaviors.
I don’t know anyone that disapproves of “progressive” values that “hates”. But have you heard the venom coming out if the mouths of “progressives” since the election?
