North Carolina is in the process of watering down it’s “bathroom bill” that required transsexuals (everybody really) to use the restroom based on the sex designated on their birth certificate. Good for them. I think that is something each state should decide for itself along with a lot of other issues. Meanwhile Texas (my home state) is considering a similar measure. Good for us; for the same reason.

But while we’re at it, I would like to propose a different approach to solving this particular social/legal dilemma. My approach to this problem is to recognize that the world (meaning the left) has decided to move another objective truth (male/female) to a subjective question. (This seems to be a leftist inclination.) Approaching the problem from this reality, the solution is to come up with a new objective criteria that will do the trick (route everyone to the correct facility).

Granted, whatever solution you come up with will only work until the left manages to subjectivity that. But that’s an ongoing problem I have no idea how to solve. It’s like the old adage goes; you can’t fix stupid (or immorality).

So… back to my solution. I say get rid of male/female designations for restrooms (and other private facilities) all together. And replace it with a penis/non-penis designation being the only criteria to be considered in the determination. If you have a penis right here, right now… you use the penis facilities. No penis right here, right now? The non-penis facilities. Done!

We don’t care what’s on your birth certificate, what’s on your driver’s license, how you’re dressed, or what you “identify” as (male, female, or fiddler-crab). This is not a comment or judgment on how you identify, or what you’ve done about that identity, or plan to do about that identity. It’s simply an objective criterion to restore order and sanity. Penis here… non-penis there.

I know, I know… I can already hear all the “buts” followed by special circumstances from the left. So, let me address a few of the obvious ones to help make things clear.

  • Wish you didn’t have a penis (when you do)?… penis facilities.
  • Wish you did have a penis (when you don’t)?… non-penis.
  • Think you’re a gal in a guy’s body (and vice-versa)? Immaterial! DO YOU HAVE A PENIS?
  • Think you’re a fiddler crab in a human body? Immaterial! DO YOU HAVE A PENIS?
  • Think you’re a gal in a guy’s body to the point that you’ve had Mr. Happy removed?… Congratulations! You have earned non-penis facility privileges. Why? Because you now don’t have a penis. (See the pattern?)
  • Think you’re a guy in a gal’s body to the point that you’ve had a Mr. Happy constructed (How do that do that by the way)?… Congratulations! You have earned penis facility privileges.
  • In therapy or consultation, taking preliminary drugs, intending or considering a Mr. Happy addition or removal?… Immaterial! DO YOU HAVE A PENIS?

    I know this solution may add a little additional pressure to the trans-gendered community in that it requires a certain level of commitment (some more than others). But I think commitment is a good thing. Like the old adage goes. Piss or get off the pot… or step away from the pot… or… you know what I mean.

  • Transgender - Pronouns[Note: This post covers a topic related to transgenderism. Usually when people write on this subject they use the pronoun preferred by the individual and insisted upon by politically correct society. I’m afraid I don’t do that (for clarity/accuracy purposes). A female identifying as a male is “she”. A male identifying as a female is “he”. Anyone identifying at a 15th century aristocrat isn’t “his or her majesty” but rather “idiot” or “he” or “she” (as gender dictates), as would anyone identifying as a fiddler crab.]

    The headline in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reads “Trinity’s transgender wrestler credits teammates for his state title“. You have to read further, much further into the article to get into the details of what happened here and even then it gets convoluted due to the politically correct pronoun replacements and politically correct bull$&*%…

    I’ll try to step through it.

  • Mack Beggs, a girl, has won the Class 6A girls wrestling state title in Texas.
  • Mack Beggs has decided she is male. I believe the politically correct term is “identified” as male.

    Daffy Duck Loses It

    Daffy Duck Loses It

    This should have the same impact as identifying as a unicorn or fiddler crab. 1) From a reality perspective identifying as something does not mean you are that something, nor does any amount of assertion, affirmation, or surgery get you one step closer to being that something. 2) From a psychological mental health perspective, the response should be the same. You are not that something. You never will be that something. Now let’s help you accept and deal with that.

    But look at our society! It has degraded to the point that we will go along with the charade and take pride in the fact that we are so open minded, and all it costs us is objective truth.

  • Mack Beggs has “identified” as a “boy” since the age of three according to her parents. (Which is as much a statement on the parents as it is the girl.)

    “This is about Mack wanting to do what Mack wants to do.” — Marco Karam (father)

    Yes, exactly, and about parents not correcting that problem and guiding the child from an early age…

    It’s also about Mack not having to face consequences when Mack does what Mack wants to do… something continuing today with her UIL wrestling.

  • Mack Beggs, is still a girl by gender, meaning she has not yet mangled her body, though she has begun the process by taking testosterone (for more than a year now).
  • As a side note that may have a little tiny bit of relevance to this story… Testosterone is a performance enhancing drug, pretty well illegal in most organized women’s sports. (Texas UIL seeming to be the exception here.)
  • Mack gives credit to her teammates, lots of practice and training, and a hard work ethic. She regrets the spotlight was on her and not them… She doesn’t mention the role of the testosterone treatments for some reason…
  • There has been a lawsuit filed that would prevent Mack from wrestling in the girls division next season. Which begs the question… how did she do so this season.

    Of course in our sick society, too many would immediately assume this means she would get to wrestle in the boys division. That’s what Mack wants…

    “The overwhelming sentiment here is that Mack should be allowed to wrestle, but should be required to compete against the boys.” — Coppell attorney Jim Baudhuin, who filed the suit.

    This coming from the guy representing the girls cheated out of their opportunity to fairly compete. His solution is to shuffle this mess to the boys division.

    Look at just about everyone interviewed… the fascist left has them scared to death to speak the truth of the matter. This just goes to show you, that we are so indoctrinated or scared of political correctness we can’t reach the truth, no matter how obvious.

    Quotes from George Orwell concerning the truth in society, or the lack of it and men to speak it.

    Quotes from George Orwell concerning the truth in society, or the lack of it and men to speak it.

    The Star-Telegram explains it this way… “More than 600 Texas school district superintendents voted nearly unanimously last year to determine gender by birth certificate forcing Beggs to face girls despite taking testosterone, a decision that runs counter to NCAA policy and International Olympic Committee guidelines.”

    The 600 Texas superintendents got it right. My question is exactly what is forcing Beggs to face girls despite the drugs. It’s hard for me to believe that there is not some rule/law concerning performance enhancing drugs in UIL competitions, but that is indeed the case under Texas law. It shouldn’t be.

    So here is where we should be, but can’t seem to get there… even in Texas.

    Mack should not be wrestling with the boys (this season, next season, or ever), because… Mack is a girl and always will be.

    Mack should not be wrestling girls because she is taking performance enhancing drugs. Mack (under her current condition) shouldn’t be wrestling at all. Texas law should be changed to ensure that in the future.

    concept-consequencesIn a perfect world, Mack would have weighed the consequences of her decisions (with the help of loving parents with a modicum of common sense) and perhaps waited until she was an adult (at least 18) before she moved forward with her “treatment”. She might have waited even longer if she showed promise at a college or professional level.

    Common sense… consequences… common decency… where are they today? You want to see Barack Obama’s legacy. It’s the Mack Beggs’ of the world. This crap is insane… literally!

  • gay-and-transgender-heartThe New York Times recently published a piece by a parent who recently accepted/encouraged her son to become a trangendered girl. The article was titled “From He to She in First Grade“. It was supposed to be a feel-good, look how open-minded we are and how you should be story. Naturally that’s not what I got from this step by step progression. I got a story about society so degraded, that it not only accepts, but celebrates child abuse and neglect.

      The (pretty well predictable) readers digest version of this tale of woe follows:

    1. Parents buy chest of dress-up clothes
    2. To encourage creativity they include female clothing. “we didn’t want his or his castmates’ creative output to be curtailed”
    3. The boy gravitated to a particularly frilly dress.
    4. The boy became fascinated with the dress. “He put on the sparkly green dress right away. In a sense, he never really took it off.”
    5. The open minded parents allowed him to wear it at home and eventually in public. “Eventually he stopped changing out of it. He wore it to the grocery store and when he had friends over.”
    6. This open display of their open-minded credentials stroked their leftist egos and sense of superiority. “My husband and I were never of the opinion that girls should not wear pants or climb trees or get dirty, or that boys should not have long hair or play with dolls or like pink, so the dress did not cause us undue alarm or worry.”
    7. School was about to start though, so the parents fretted about what to do… they didn’t fret too long though… pausing in the middle of the road (rationality) before quickly turning left. “The former (letting the boy wear dresses to school) had the advantage of being fair, what we believed, and what would make our child happiest. The latter had the advantage of being much less fraught (with people who aren’t as superior and enlightened).” (Of course “happy” is relative to the here and now, vs the well being and development of the child as he progresses to adulthood. A child may be happy in the here and now if you let him play in the street… in the long run it may not be such a good idea. It’s called parenting.)
    8. So they let the kid decide (which by general definition is really, really bad parenting) “So we asked him, ‘What do you think you’ll do with your dress when school starts in a couple weeks?’ We said: ‘You need new clothes for the new school year. What should we buy?'”
    9. The kid chose dresses. (Receiving absolutely no guidance of outdated ideas of right or wrong from the parents.)
    10. They prepared the kid for the troglodyte children. Asking “What do you think other kids will say tomorrow if you wear a dress to school?”
    11. They made sure the teacher was a fellow leftist. “I hadn’t met his new teacher yet, so I sent her a heads-up by email… She emailed back right away, unfazed, and she promised to support our child ‘no matter what.'” (She was leftist, otherwise this story would have been about lawsuits)
    12. They went school shopping and bought his “appropriate” (non frilly) dresses for school.
    13. They paused once more in the middle of the road (rationality)… before turning left. “My husband and I took deep breaths and walked him to school. For my son’s part, he fairly floated, seemingly unconcerned. Having decided, he was sure.”
    14. They were aghast that “yes” there were troglodyte children at the school who teased their son… but it wasn’t as bad as they had feared. “That lasted longer than I had expected, but it was mostly over within the month.”
    15. They now take pride in the wisdom of the son (ooops daughter). “He had already decided. He didn’t think about that anymore. And he — she — never looked back.” (Did you notice the emotional, teary transition there… how could that be wrong?)
    16. Now they have the means to continually display their open-minded credentials, stroke their leftist egos and sense of superiority. “And we, as a family, decided to be open and honest about it, too, celebrating her story instead of hiding it.”

    concept-arroganceThe moral of the story is that if after reading this tripe you don’t unconditionally support their decision and their “daughter” then you are a bigot and should be ashamed of yourself. Regardless of your position, you will be expected to either 1) voice your unconditional support or 2) shut the hell up. The fact that you don’t want your kids exposed to this crap is IMMATERIAL. The fact that you don’t want this boy in your daughters dressing room in a few years is IMMATERIAL. If you are a bigot, your concerns are and always will be IMMATERIAL. Society must literally progress…

    What this story says (besides identifying us bigots) is that society has degraded beyond the point of no return and the rate of degradation seems to be exponential. Western and American society is collapsing (and this is just a symptom of that). Objective truth and reality are being tossed aside for self indulgence and feelings.

    crab-hatWhat if this young boy decided to stop being a boy in a skirt and transitioned to being a fiddler crab in a skirt instead? No really, what if he decided he was a girl fiddler crab and insisted on scuttling sideways and pinching things… in a dress? What if he decided he must be true to this feeling about himself and do this in public and at school? What if in his heart of hearts he really believed he is a fiddler crab? By leftist standards, self indulgence and feelings trump everything (even logic and reality). Would feelings (and support from his parents) make him a fiddler crab by today’s enlighten standards?

    The question and the idea behind it is absurd… but no less absurd than the “reality” these parents and their leftist compatriots INSIST that we accept as truth. This boy is no more a girl than he is a fiddler crab. Feeling things are or ought to be does not make them objectively true.

    encouragement-be-true-to-yourselfThe world says you can be anything you want to be if you just believe hard enough. Having parents who shirk their responsibility helps; not to mention enablers in the form of family and friends and those with social agendas (like teachers). And finally shaming those who would dare point out the emperor has no clothes is the order of the day. Love and compassion are now defined as pretending (or actually convincing yourself) that a lie is truth and that objective truth is a lie.

    Telling a drowning man that everything is fine is no mercy (nor compassion). Sending your child into the water with a stone tied around his neck is unconscionable.

    The world says to thine own self be true, embrace who god or nature or made you. That, to be honest with you, is the last thing we should do.

    christ-deny-yourself-signA wise man (God himself) tells us to do the exact opposite. He tells us to “deny” ourselves, to deny our nature and instead to seek something better, something not of this world… Him. That is one of the hardest things to do as a human being. And part of being a good parent is preparing our children not to embrace every whim or nature we experience, no matter how fashionable or enlightened.

    GOP - Trump - LogoSo I’m watching a news program featuring a bunch of Trump supporters and one in particular stood out in my mind. The gentleman identified himself as gay (though not trans-gendered) and complimented Trump on not bothering with the issue of where he peed and was concentrating on more important issues.

    This gentleman helped me clarify several things in my mind…

    One: New Republican Voters
    Trump and his supporters keep bragging about the record number of new voters he will bring to the Republican Party. This (I suspect) is the quality of the new voter. And if this is the new inclusive Republican Party, I’ll have no part in it. In Trumps defense, this is exactly what the establishment GOP has been pushing for years. But when politicians (and shysters) brag about “growing the party” or creating a “big tent” they are simply using codes words for “compromising conservative principles” as the price to be paid for winning, and power, and money which are their real goals. That’s a trade-off I’m never going to be interested in. If you become your enemy to win the war, have you really won the war? Of course not.

    Two: The Election is Already Settled
    The 2016 election is already lost. Trump (by his nature) and his followers assure it. There will be no game unless he’s the nominee. They will support nobody else… So Hillary wins and the GOP most likely looses the Senate (if not the House also). It’s a done deal.

    In all fairness, I’m no better. I’ll support Trump under no circumstances. BUT also to be fair I was never going to support Bush, or Christie, or Kasich for the same reason as I won’t support Trump. None are conservatives and I’ve vowed never to support another non-conservative for office. Romney was the last. The GOP label is not enough anymore; nor is throwing me a VP bone. I’ve abandoned the GOP and my sole hope for this election cycle is that it tears the GOP apart and creates one of two new parties. I hope the same for the Democrats in the near future.

    Insane - StampThree: National Insanity
    Western civilization is in the throws of committing suicide by reason of insanity. How long that will take I have no idea; but the process is now at full speed. The new Trump supporter is aghast that we’re having the debate over restrooms. So am I… but for a different reason. He’s aghast because it is so un-important and obvious that we should be inclusive and let people be who they are or identify as. I’m aghast because it is so obvious that men (biologically speaking) should not be allowed in any female facility. That we’re even debating such a fundamental fact is proof of irreversible societal insanity.

    Yes; there are some very important issues out there like the debt, immigration, terror… so why aren’t we addressing them? Because each has a moral component that we repeatedly prove we lack… We continually spend what our children and grandchildren must repay. We allow those who would do us harm free access across our borders, not to mention seek to fundamentally change our nation by allowing in those will will never assimilate (this being the price for votes and cheap labor). We have such self-loathing that we espouse moral equivalence with our terrorist enemies. And… We grant men (all men) free access to the private facilities of our mothers, sisters, wives, and daughters.

    On issue after issue, we demonstrate decay. And don’t even get me started on rationality… We are insane with NO sign or hope of recovery.

    The Daffy Duck Parable
    I often reference pop culture (and literature, and history) in conversation and writing; which is bad when you reach my age because nobody gets the references anymore. For me personally it’s less of a shock because my references were so obscure to begin with. I use it in my everyday speech too. You ought to see my nieces roll their eyes when I use one my nuggets of wisdom.

    One of my common sayings and obscure references has always been “And me saying that I’m a fiddler crab doesn’t make me one.”

    So let me explain this reference. It comes from a Warner Bros. Bugs Bunny cartoon featuring Bugs Bunny, Elmer Fudd, and Daffy Duck. It is hunting season and Elmer is trying to shoot Daffy, who convinces him its rabbit season so Elmer switches to Bugs, and vice versa and so on. The gag is Elmer is completely confused and Daffy always ends up getting shot no matter what happens.

    Towards the end of the cartoon, Daffy loses it and exclaims, “Shoot me again. I enjoy it. I love the smell of burnt feathers… and gunpowder… and cordite… I’m an elk! Shoot me! Go on… It’s elk season! I’m a fiddler crab! Why don’t you shoot me? It’s fiddler crab season!” And there is the reference. 🙂

    If this were a parable, Daffy Duck is me, Elmer Fudd is society with its slings are arrows (a shotgun; and another reference), and Bugs Bunny is the left convincing Elmer (society) of whatever nut-ball notion fits his agenda.

    Qualifications to Work for NAACP

    Rachel Dolezal "FEELS" black and that's all that matters in a society that has discarded truth.

    Rachel Dolezal “FEELS” black and that’s all that matters in a society that that has discarded truth.

    There a woman in Spokane Washington, Rachel Dolezal, who is the president of the NAACP chapter there. She isn’t black or mixed race or so claim her white biological parents.

    Now the NAACP has stated (and I agree) that being black is not a requirement to be a member or participant or even president of that particular organization. No. Those requirements would be close to: 1) Having a victim mentality 2) Pushing racism incessantly & 3) Drinking the leftist Cool-aid (another reference).

    Over Qualified
    Under those criteria… there is little doubt in my mind that Rachel was immanently qualified for her position as chapter president for the NAACP. A perfect example of her “qualification” would be what brought attention to this woman in the first place. That being the hate mail (found in a PO Box) sent to Rachel Dolezal in February (2015). Upon investigation, it seems the mail in question had not been processed by the Post Office… which means the only way it was delivered into her mailbox was from the recipient side of the mail box… which means the person who put it there had a key. (I’ll only connect the dots so far…)

    Rachel’s simply made the decision to publicly and legally (admissions forms) claim to be “black”; which seems to have helped her financially. Rachael publicly claimed a man, a black man, who was not her biological father to be her father (maybe she used the word dad).

    Complicated Questions

    I don't understand the question...

    I don’t understand the question…

    So let me ask you a question or two? “Is your father an African American man?” “Are you an African American?”

    Exactly how complicated and confusing are these questions? For Rachel Dolezal they were extremely complexing. After identifying a black man in a photo as her “dad”, she was asked these two questions. She wouldn’t answer them, became befuddled and walked away from the reporter.

    Feeling Black
    I can already see her defense (probably crafted by a crack-pot PR firm). She identified the black man in the picture as her “dad” because he was such a great mentor and supporter. She has always felt that he was like a daddy to her, even more so than her hateful white dad. She didn’t answer the other two questions (which have more narrow objective definitions), so… she never lied. This really should be called the “depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is defense” (another reference). Eventually, Rachel will simply claim that she has always “felt” like a black woman. She will then hope her leftist credentials carry the day for her with the NAACP and MSM (Main Stream Media). I wouldn’t be surprised if it worked.

    And in today’s society it should work. Today, it’s all about FEELINGS. What one feels defines ones reality; and that reality is just as good as anybody else’s. In a nutshell our society is embracing and celebrating the subjective in all things social and political. It rejects truth (which it calls false) as backward and evil. How far this societal evolution (and revolution) will go is unpredictable and scary.

    Left Behind
    Concept - Left BehindWe who can’t adjust to this subjective world (and don’t even want to) are harangued as backward, narrow, and bigoted. Some of us consider it as a badge of honor; some as even a cross we gladly bear (another reference).

    In trying to explain the world from our perspective, let me ask you, what is 2+2? (I don’t think society has reached this point of irrationality yet) If…you answered 4; I would the like to follow-up and ask why YOU are so narrow minded? Why can’t it be 3 or 5 OR 2 if I really, really FEEL that is the answer? Who are YOU to tell me I’m wrong and try to force upon me your narrow, outdated, definition of 2+2!? And who are you to deny my a job (as a bridge builder or architect) based on what I really feel to be the right answer?

    Update Say to Feel
    I’ve got to update my old Daffy Duck reference from “And me saying that I’m a fiddler crab doesn’t make me one” to “And me feeling like I’m a fiddler crab…”

    Without regard to my degree of “feeling” that I’m a fiddler crab… alas, I am not one. Not even if I scuttle sideways and eat rotting crap on a beach. But I’m just as much a fiddler crab as Rachel Dolezal is a black (or mixed race) woman… as Bruce Jenner (or Catelyn if you prefer) is a woman… and as Elizabeth Warren is of American Indian heritage… Again the key word in all of this is NOT (zero, nata, zilch); and the fact that society doesn’t realize that is proof of just how far down the road to oblivion we have traveled.

    People - Manning, Bradley, ChelseaBradley Manning, the army intelligence officer who leaked 100s of thousands of classified documents to WikiLeaks, was just sentenced to 35 years in military prison. This was half what the prosecutors asked for.

    What was Bradley’s first reaction to the sentence? Announce that it’s not “Bradley” anymore, it’s “Chelsea”. And thus in one swift action he solidified himself into a Leftist Twofer; representing two things his supporters want more than anything, damaging the U.S. (specifically her military and war efforts) AND pushing the gay agenda.

    “I am Chelsea Manning. I am a female. Given the way that I feel, and have felt since childhood, I want to begin hormone therapy as soon as possible. I hope that you will support me in this transition… I also request that, starting today, you refer to me by my new name and use the feminine pronoun. I look forward to receiving letters from supporters and having the opportunity to write back.” (signed) “Chelsea E. Manning.”

    My Reaction to His Request:
    To which I say “No. No, Bradley, I don’t support you in this decision. I wish I didn’t have to give a rat’s ass, but unfortunately I do… because of two social dysfunctions we currently suffer from. 1) Enough people in our society DO support your decision and that fact weakens us on so many levels, particularly militarily. 2) Enough people in our society DO support your decision to the point that we (taxpayers) would actually be required to pay for your bullshit.

    It is not currently Army policy to provide this type of “therapy” or surgery. (At the rate of our decline… just give them a few more years…)

    The Left’s Reaction:
    So, as if on cue, Bradley’s lawyer, David Coombs said “If Fort Leavenworth does not (make Bradley a girl), then I’m going to do everything in my power to make sure they are forced to do so.”

    And of course, the LBGT community immediately jumped in and supported Manning “It is illegal for the Department of the Army to deny medical treatment to a prisoner… It’s really clear cut. If a person gets diabetes, you treat the diabetes. If you break a leg, that gets treated. If you have schizophrenia, that gets treated. It doesn’t matter if it is mental or physical health problem.” This was from Mara Keisling with the National Center for Transgender Equality.

    This all means that there is sure to be court battles concerning Bradley’s “right” to be Chelsea; exposing our dysfunctional dirty laundry for all to see. This includes our mortal enemies, thus Bradley and his allies on the left can continue to give them aid comfort for years to come.

    I realize our legal system is a separate national crisis also well beyond rational repair; and who can say what the solution to that is. Me? I’ve reached a point where I want to try public flogging… and not the kinder, gentler, organized through some kind of due process flogging. I talking about a fed-up mob dragging these idiots out of their offices and ivory towers and beating the living %$#@ out of them.

    [Deep Breath]

    Of course many on the left have been supporting this nut and traitor from day one. They’re the ones currently protesting his detention, conviction and sentencing. They’re the ones who think Obama should give Manning a pardon (better late than never). Much of it has to do with he’s one of theirs (obviously). Another part of it is, his only crime was to hurt the United States (military) and our foreign policy; isn’t that pretty well every enlighten person’s wish?

    2013 08 00 - Bradley Manning Protests

    The amazing part of the left’s support is watching the mental gymnastics and rationalization involved in his defense. Bradley’s defense was that the hissy fit in which he released all that information was caused by his “gender identity” issues at the time. And the left’s response to this defense? [crickets chirping]. Doesn’t that speak loud and clear as to why these nuts and perverts shouldn’t be allowed to “serve” in the armed forces (or any position where they could be such a danger) in the first place?

    The left argues this crap is “normal” but ignores the argument (by other leftist) that it can be the cause of and excuse for major intelligence leaks and traitorous activities. By this “logic”, breaking the law or expecting the law to naturally not apply to you and your cause, committing treason, and aiding our enemies are just a side effect of normal. Wait a minute… that kind-of is what the left thinks…

    The Crime:
    Concerning the crime perpetrated by Bradley Manning. He may have had real and valid concerns. I may have even shared some of them had he done the right thing. But I believe his intent was not exposing information for the sake of doing good (as he claims) so much as revenge against the United States and the military for doing him harm; for not adequately accepting and embracing his “identity”.

    Had he collected the information and gone through a Congressman, Senator, agency, or used some process where the world and our enemies could not obtain access to the classified information; I would have called him “whistle blower” instead of the traitor I believe he is. The same goes for Snowden.

    The Punishment in Another Time:
    In another time in history Manning would have been summarily shot. Can you imagine this stuff back during WWII or the Cold War? Can you imagine protestors during that war defending this guy? No one would have dared. But we have moved beyond that; we’re more civilized now. We’re on the decline as a society and as a world power. Our current dysfunctional handling of our traitors and enemies is simply a symptom of the real disease we suffer from.

    The Punishment Today:
    I wish we weren’t in such horrible shape but that’s where we are. I claim to be someone who wants to follow the rule of law (something the left ignores continually); so while I wish the law were different, we should follow it; if for no other reason than as a nod of respect to what our nation once was.

    Manning was tried under the law. The death penalty wasn’t sought by the prosecution. The prosecution sought 60 plus years and got 35. I’m OK with that. Let him do his time like anybody else doing theirs; with no special treatment. The goes both ways with no harsh treatment or pandering perversions.

    What I Really Want from This Case:
    When all is said and done, all I really want from the Bradley Manning fiasco is closure.

    Concept - Fifteen Minutes of Fame - 002I just want Bradley’s fifteen minutes to be over with already. Throw his ass in Leavenworth, lock the door and be done with him. When he’s out… if he still wants to be Chelsea… all I can say is knock yourself out… on your dime or that of your supporters. Hopefully you’ve got 35 years to think it over.

    Let this idiot and pervert fade away… Is that too much to ask?

    Of course the answer is, Yes. There is no way the left is going to let Bradley Manning fade away. Now that they have a twofer; they can damage the U.S. and push their gay and transgendered agenda with this guy.

    Forward…

    Sign - Little GirlOK… let me jump into my rotten bastard roll for a moment. I’m going to breech a subject that has not one but two (or possibly more) perilous aspects to it. “Gender Identity” in relation to “a Child”. Unfortunately today’s environment of political correctness makes it impossible to discuss this issue. It’s so bad that even I, approach it with trepidation… but here it goes.

    In Denver Colorado, the parents of a little boy, is throwing a hissy-fit that he can’t use the girls’ rest room. That is because the little boy is “transgendered” which I guess means he dresses and maybe even plays like a little girl. I would guess that’s about it… because what else does a 6-year-old know about “sexual identity” more than that.

    The school the boy attends has bent over backwards for this kid and his parents. They refer to him using the female pronouns and basically treat him like a girl. BUT the school decided over the winter break that he should use the boys’ restroom, the staff’s restroom, or one available in the nurse’s office. This probably has something to do with him having a little penis… and the school not wanting to chance exposing it to the many little girls attending the school.

    These options were (of course) not good enough for the parents…

    “This automatically singles her out and stigmatizes her. It sets her up for future harassing and bullying, and creates an unsafe environment. The school has a wonderful opportunity to teach students that differences are OK, and we should embrace their differences, instead of teaching them to discriminate against someone who is a little different.” — The parents of the “transgendered” boy.

    The parents went on to say…

    “It’s important for us to talk about this, because a lot of people have been so afraid to be their true selves for so long. They’ve known from very young children who they are but were afraid to tell. We want to help create a society where it’s OK to be who you are.” — The parents of the “transgendered” boy.

    OK… Let’s do that… talk, I mean…

    First, when the parents (or any leftist) say it is “important for us to talk about this”, they don’t mean that we should discuss this in any sense of the word. Their intention is more in line that I (and other social conservatives) should really just shut up, and capitulate to their opinions and social agenda. That is what they mean by “talk about this”. By talk they mean that they should be allowed to “indoctrinate” all children in our school systems no matter the social or religious objections other parents might have. And IF you disagree with that definition of “talk” you need to be forced to shut-up!

    Tolerant Liberals

    If we were to actually “talk”, some of us might bring up the horrible parenting, bordering on abuse that has to be present for a 6-year-old to be having “gender identity” issues in the first place. But we can’t talk about that…

    And you say we need a “society where it’s OK to be who you are”. NO… We Don’t. The very premise of that statement is absurd. It’s not always OK in society to “be who you are”. Polygamists, Kleptomaniacs, Pedophiles, Alcoholics, Dope Heads, and a wide range of other “social deviants”… really shouldn’t embrace their differences. And society shouldn’t either.

    Moving on, I don’t want my kids having to deal with this issue at such a young age. I would like them to have some semblance of a child-hood. And YOU, because of your bad parenting and leftist agenda have decided it is in the best interest of society that my kids not have that opportunity. And I’m intolerant…

    Immoral - TransgenderAnd while we’re talking; to you this is all about inclusion an discrimination. To me it’s about morality; and raising my kids to respect what is good and right. OK, our definitions of what is good and right seem to differ. Yet, you seem intent on pushing your morality (or lack there-of from my perspective) onto my kids. Do you really want to “talk” about that; because I rarely meet someone on the left that does.

    And finally, let me clarify where I stand. A “transgendered” person at any age should not be bullied or assaulted (verbally or physically). So on some level I agree with the parents that these people (and especially the young) should have a safe environment. But forced indoctrination is not acceptable. I guarantee that definition of protection isn’t good enough for the parents (and the left) It’s a long way from the acceptance and even embracing the left demands.

    Speaking for conservatives… We don’t want our kids thinking that this is acceptable behavior. It’s not. And it’s our job to teach these lessons according to our conscience and faith. It’s not the schools job on either side of the issue. We resent the fact that these parents and the left in general is pushing this crap onto 6-year-olds (our children); effectively telling us to shut-up while they teach all kids that deviant behavior is normal. And we resent the fact that the left is using the public schools to push this crap.

    To the parents of this boy I say, You are despicable; and what you have done to your child is horrible and should be criminal.
