I am confident that there are those read my blogs and think that I must be the biggest conservative dillweed (keeping it family friendly) that ever lived. I know that there are some on Facebook who hold that opinion. But I have my reasons as to my opinions as they pertain to various liberal agendas. Now I know that there are those who are more on the left than I who simply have a different opinion of life. I have no problem accepting that concept. I would recommend that if they did not want to be painted with the same brush that they speak out against the wackos just as they would expect me to do the same regarding some of the far right-wingers who might be living in homemade bomb shelters in their backyards and try to force it upon others. My problem with the liberal left is mainly with those who refuse to actually use the commonsense the Good Lord gave a duck and simply run on emotion. There is a plethora of areas where this is the rule of law:
Deportation of illegals:
I have no problem with a person who simply wants a better life for themselves and their families. I would probably do the exact same thing if I was living in Mexico and my family was seeing people beheaded on a daily basis. I have no problem with someone here who may have gotten here illegally but who are trying to make a safe living. I truly do not believe our government has any problem with them either. What we are seeing are those who have committed felonies AND are here illegally getting deported. If they came here and did what they were supposed to do there would not be an issue. It is not the smartest person in the world go be somewhere illegally AND go out and draw attention to themselves by committing acts of violence. You must really question just how much of a better life they were serious about having. I hear people scream about ‘breaking up the family’. I do not hear those same people complain about when a citizen breaks the law and goes to jail. What about their family? If someone commits a felony then they are not serious about a better life.
Oh how the masses moan about this one. Everyone screams about freedom of choice. Where does maturity come in to play? I you want to enjoy one of the most mature acts of life, the act of procreation, you better have already made up your choice. The time for choice is before the pregnancy, not afterwards. If you want choice then choose between which forms of birth control you wish to use and do not use abortion as your birth control option. I hear people talk about abortion in the case of incest and rape. I would also love to know just how many cases Planned Parenthood addresses regarding incest and rape. It is my understanding that many if not most Planned Parenthood clinics do not provide prenatal care, only abortions. Planned Parenthood loves to brainwash people into thinking that they are the savior of young girls who are approaching the age of child bearing and are there to protect them. Get the facts. You can get sex education and birth control from numerous agencies. Planned Parenthood is known for ONE thing and that is abortions. Planned Parenthood’s founder was also known for ONE thing and that was to kill off as many black babies as possible because she viewed them as weeds (her words not mine). Please do basic research before wishing to protest and sing the praised of Planned Parenthood.
Protests and riots:
This seems to be the area for which the liberal left is best known. Growing up in the 60’s this is a sensitive subject for me. I watched the riots over Vietnam knowing that there were young men and women dying, my cousin included, while there were self-righteous people protesting in the streets against them and spitting upon those lucky enough to return home in an upright position. I watched as these people were doing everything in their power to disrupt a country I was raised to love. I watched as these people burned universities. I lived in DeKalb, Illinois during the Northern Illinois University riots where buildings were taken over, damaged and the city businesses threated for total destruction. I watched as the small groups would come in and rally up a larger group of weak minded people who could be whipped up emotionally and then the small group quietly leave while the damage is being done to the city. I had no respect for anarchist then and less now. I was raised to have respect for other people’s property. Today I see spoiled brats burning the businesses and life savings of innocent people for the sake of something that the protesters honestly could not describe. They just want to destroy. Now the protesters are supposedly doing their damage in the name of social justice. They are just looking for an excuse to destroy. Going back to the riots over Vietnam it was the riots which later was proven to have given aid and support to an enemy who was all but defeated in 1969 but the riots gave them encouragement and thus the war was extended for years. During those years thousands of young people died and Prisoners of War were tortured. This was all because of the protesters felt it was their RIGHT to protest with no thought about consequences. The protesters then and of today are nothing but cowards who want a reason to destroy. If this was not true then they would be able to express why there were protesting and would not be destroying other people’s things. Then these cowards get all bent whenever the police use force to stop them. If you are going to throw a brick at a police officer expect to be shot! Today the protesters cry racism and fascism. I would love them to define either of these words. I would also love them to explain why when a Democrat was doing the exact same thing no one protested. These morons today are screaming about Trump and how he is ruining the nation. He has been in office only ONE MONTH. These protesters have never given the man a chance to do anything. Their minds were made up before he ever got into office. They are not opposed to policy. These people do not like the man and are too cowardly to admit that fact. I know there are probably some left liberals who do not stand with the protesters but if they are not standing against them then they stand with them.
I do not understand today’s society and neither do I really want to either. I am proud to be a dinosaur. I am proud to stand for respect of others, other’s property, and other’s rights. We all have our rights. We all have a right to freedom of speech. We all have a right to a deferring opinion. But no one has a right for force their difference upon others nor to destroy what others have built. If you break the law except consequences. If you break into a home expect that the homeowner might take offense to that and hurt you. You have given up your right to complain at that point. I fly my flag. I love my country. I have not always liked my government but I have never destroyed other people’s property simply because I opposed what my government was doing. If today’s society really wants to be taken seriously then start using your brains and less emotion. Think things through and start doing your research before you start shooting off your mouth about matters. Be informed. Then, THEN, maybe have peaceful protests if you do not feel you are being heard.
Personally I believe that all the riots and protests today are nothing more than a smokescreen propped up by weak minded people who are easily lead. The goal is not ‘social reform’ or ‘social justice’. The goal is government change in a manner that is not heathy for this country. Liberals love to talk about Sharia Law and how wonderful it is. If liberals are as caring and loving about their gay and lesbian friends as they say they would be fighting every aspect of Sharia Law because Sharia law calls for the death of all homosexuals. No one who fights for woman’s rights would ever stand for Sharia Law in that Sharia Law calls for men to beat their women and supports the stoning of women who have been raped. There are high stakes on the table today. The liberal left of today needs to do their homework before protesting. If their protests are successful they will NOT like the outcomes.
