IT TAKES A VILLAIN

All ideologues, demagogues and power hungry hate purveyors need a villain
We see it more often than we would prefer but it is something as old as civilization itself; you want to get power and fortune then you find a group of people that somehow are different and you vilify them.

The Romans had their Christians, the Nazi the Jews, the Communists the wealthy, the wealthy the lazy parasites, the churches have the gays…and so it goes. 

It is obvious now to a lot of people what this entails; we have seen it repeatedly as a weapon or rallying point against our President: he’s obviously not one of us; he’s a Muslim, a Socialist, an elitist, an angry black man and so forth. By vilifying him they blow that dog whistle that makes those racists salivate like Pavlov’s dogs.

Conversely, the homosexual population will always be a minority; there is no way that the gays will ever be as numerous as to be able to exact equality by numbers alone. So that if any issue is put to a vote the minority would be defeated. Such was the case with equal right for blacks until the Federal Government stepped in and demanded full integration. 

With gays, who are estimated to be by some accounts as few as 5% of the general population or as numerous as 18% there will never be an opportunity to bring about change through the ballot box. The ideologues and demagogues that depend on this vilification will always blow that dog whistle to make the dumb public hate the gays.

In Maine, Maryland, Minnesota and Washington, voters will go to the polls to decide if gay and lesbian couples – our friends and neighbors – are worthy of the same protections as everyone else.

But the question is simply this: What would actually happen if there are no gays in our society? What if everyone went back in the closet or better yet, what if some miracle scientific discovery produced an antidote to homosexuality?

That my friends would not be very pretty. It would take away the most powerful tool these Christianist homophobes have to gather their troops and remain in power and comfort. The churches would definitely suffer from lack of adherents; the same could be said if the war on drugs ended…where would all those law enforcement people, those lawyers and those judges be if drugs became legalized? …Why they wouldn’t have jobs, that what.

That is why it is imperative that we oppose any attempt at placing on ballots throughout the states or local government issues that would be subjected to a popular vote…the rights of man are not negotiable nor are they to be subjected to a democratic vote…you either have civil rights or you don’t.

Gay Actor Max von Essen's Blisteringly Truthful Facebook Letter to Friends Supporting Mitt Romney: READ



An open letter to friends supporting Mitt Romney on Facebook by actor Max von Essen

Essen  plays Magaldi in the Broadway production of Evita, is getting some attention around the web.
It's well worth a read.
Hey listen, I know you didn’t mean any harm commenting on this post and I like you, we had some great times growing up. But Romney and Ryan believe that I am less than you. They believe I am a second class citizen and don’t deserve the same rights that you had the privilege of being born into simply by being straight. They want to add a constitutional amendment that will ban gay marriage forever. It will set us back decades and ensure that I never legally have the opportunity to have a family or a partner in my lifetime.

They also believe that being at your partner’s side when he/she is dying is a benefit, not a civil right. They could keep me from my partner dying in a hospital. Could you even imagine something like that in your own life? Being separated from your wife on her death bed? Could you imagine your marriage never being recognized and being told that your family is not a family and you do not deserve any federal rights that comes with marriage. Over 1100 rights.  Did you know that? 1100.

Ryan doesn’t believe in the hate crimes act fought unwaveringly for by Judy Shepard, mother of Matthew Shepard, murdered for being gay in Wyoming. Murdered for being gay. Could you imagine if I was murdered for being gay? Could you really look my mom in the eye and say ‘oh well, we can not prosecute this crime as a hate crime’?

I know there are important issues involved in this campaign. I know people are suffering and the economy has not improved at a rate we all wish it would. Yes, people are suffering but the gay and lesbian community has been suffering for hundreds of years and I am so tired of it. So tired of feeling that I am less than. So tired of knowing I have friends on here who will vote for someone who will keep me a second class citizen for my entire lifetime. I have already spent half a lifetime hiding, half a lifetime conforming. It is exhausting, demeaning and I am worn out. I want to love myself full out.  I want a president who can look me in the eye and say ‘You are equal!’ ‘You are equal to everyone else in this country and I will fight for your rights. The time is now and it is long overdue.’ Romney and Ryan could not look me in the eye and say that and I feel sorry for every gay and questioning child who might have to listen to a president who believes that he/she is not equal. Children will take their lives. It is the WORST form of trickle down bullying and it absolutely splits my heart in half. When the president says you are less than, it gives permission to every authority figure, every politician, every teacher, every bully on the playground to push you around and bully you and treat you less than. It is dangerous and lives will be lost.

If this is not important to you, please remove me from your friends list. I need people in my life who love me and consider me 100% equal.

A REPRESSIVE RIGHT WING DICTATORSHIP IS OURS FOR THE TAKING

The real possibility exists that the Teabagger-radical-right wing conservatives may well win this election.
If that was to happen, then there is a real possibility of seeing all the freedoms we now enjoy in America vanish like water draining out of a tub when you take off the plug. This is not a prediction, just an observation and a plausible one because there are assholes out there already thinking of it and recommending it.
For example, Glenn Beck (biggest asshole only second to Rush Limbaugh) has been saying that has the intention of putting the establishment press out of business, while others like Erik Rush are saying publicly that rights will be taken away from journalists.
“Those whose speech and actions impinge upon the God-given rights set forth in the Declaration of Independence and codified in the Constitution are, by definition, excepted from protection under the First Amendment (as well as the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment). This is a very important concept to consider, because it is based on these presumptions of protected speech and equal protection for all that progressives and socialists have engaged in their predation upon our liberties.
If these truths can be acknowledged and widely accepted as such (as opposed to progressives’ Orwellian interpretations), then the political disenfranchisement of liberals, progressives, socialists and Marxists can begin in earnest, and in the open.”

"Trials for treason and the requisite sentences would apply, and I would have no qualms about seeing such sentences executed, no matter how severe."

He's calling for the death penalty. He's actually calling for executing journalists.


I can’t envision this happening and then again, I think back to the taking over of Cuba by the Communists in 1959 while I still lived there and the similarities are uncanny and fucking scary.
The first things to go in Cuba upon the rise to power of Castro were the freedom of speech and the press; newspapers and radio-television stations were confiscated and then became propaganda outlets for the totalitarian government much in the same fashion that Fox news is the propaganda branch of the Republican Party.
In this day of the internet, the task of silencing such a large number of opinionated opponents to a theocratic plutocracy becomes much more complicated. But it could and will probably happen. We see it in Iran, Cuba and North Korea where the internet has been forbidden.
Blogs like this one will disappear overnight and there is the real possibility that those blog writers will be intimidated, threatened or punished (incarcerated or even executed).
Can you say TYRANY? (Arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.)
TYRANNY?

ROMNEY'S AND THE REPUBLICAN WORLD VS THE REAL WORLD

WHO ARE THE CONSERVATIVES NOW – THE REPUBLICANS OR THE DEMOCRATS?



The Democrats are now the real conservatives

I never thought I would say those words…that the real conservatives are the Democrats, they are the ones who want to preserve our country the way the Founding Fathers intended, unlike Republicans who want to turn it into some kind of theocratic plutocracy.

Democrats stand for defending our Constitution, not amending it to reflect some sick ideology they picked up from an atheist anarchist like Ayn Rand.
Furthermore, if you put your ideology ahead of the welfare of your country and its people then you are not very patriotic, now are you? We have seen how for the last four years Republicans have delayed, opposed, blocked and sabotaged any and all efforts to fix the mess they got us into and sabotage is treason, not patriotism.
For that reason alone, if you are a real conservative you should be indignant enough and pissed off at these ultra-right wing extremists that are now asking you to vote for them.


THE UGLY AMERICANS - WE'RE THE GOP

PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOT APOLOGIZING FOR AMERICA - NEVER HAS

Republicans can’t differentiate between being obnoxiously arrogant and diplomatically competent.

This theme came up again during the Presidential debate last night…the premise that President Obama is apologetic and weak.

Nothing could be further from the truth, it is right there for everyone to see: George W. Bush and the Republicans managed to turn world opinion and empathy for America after September 11th into resentment and hatred. And why do you think that is?
To begin with, Republicans have this very serious problem; it is that they think that the more arrogant and abrasive you are the tougher you appear, the louder you yell and insult others the more powerful you appear. Basically we are talking about being a BULLY.
Both President Bush and Romney were born into wealth and did pretty much as they pleased, surely they didn’t have many rivals or anyone to confront them throughout their lives…it is a given that children of the privileged, unless the parents make it a point to instill some humility and civility, that they will be arrogant, pompous, insensitive, lacking compassion and totally unaware of the problems everyday people face.
Mitt it has been reported was a bully during his school days even tormenting a boy and pinning him down to cut his hair because he was perceived to be gay…that is bullying. Mitt Romney went on to support the Viet Nam war while avoiding military service as so many of the sons of prominent wealthy Americans did using deferments and his religion to avoid being drafted…that is cowardice.
Mitt Romney as Governor didn’t really meet much opposition…even if his state was mostly a Democrat state and so was his legislature…and that is because Governors are treated with respect and deference that is appropriate to the person who occupies that office…something Mitt and the Republicans are unwilling to do for THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES…at the very least they may disagree with the man but have respect for the office.
Mitt Romney as a businessman didn’t encounter much opposition either…after all, who in their right mind would say no to a CEO and risk losing their job? And so now we have a Presidential candidate who thinks like his predecessor Bush did that being arrogant, pompous and obnoxious is a desirable trait that imparts respect and admiration for our country and it is an admirable character trait rather than a flaw.
I can only tremble and fear with great trepidation if Romney actually wins the election how arrogant and obnoxious he will be as President and what that will mean for America. You think we have foes and terrorist attacks now? Wait until he is in the Oval Office and we start to piss off friends and allies left and right. What makes me think this is not going to happen? Just look at Mitt Romney’s gaffs during his embarrassing London trip and others.
For me as for many millions of people who watched the debate, Mitt Romney comes across as arrogant and acrimoniously pompous; but at the same time he is like one of these dumb beauty pageant contestants who repeats meaningless crap like: “I love freedom and I want to help bring about world peace, blah, blah, blah” all of it empty rhetoric devoid of substance. Body language told us a lot on the first debate when he walked all over the moderator, he was clearly pissed during the second debate because he was unable to bully the moderator as was the case in this last debate. You could see it in his face, his posture, his demeanor.
You want more of George W. Bush and you want to vote against your own interests? Then vote for Mitt.

Tagg Romney Wanted To "Take A Swing" At the President during the Debate

Tagg Romney told a radio audience that he wanted to punch the President
During an interview with North Carolina radio host Bill LuMaye, Tagg Romney said that hearing the president call his father a liar made him want to "jump out of [his] seat and ... rush down to the debate stage and take a swing at him."
Now, isn’t that SPECIAL! Not surprising however, he is being brought up with the same askew values and erroneous views of society, who he is and why they are so repugnant.
Governor Romney not only lied but also disrespected the President and attempted to bully the moderator on the second debate like he did on the first…but he met with one tough cookie, this lady was not going to allow Mitt Romney to bully her and take over the debate by intimidation. Your father precious Tagg, thinks he can treat others as if they were the servants or the hired help and he should never be confronted.
Tagg, did it ever occur to you that some of us find your father so arrogant, so disrespectful that we would have liked to do that to him? As for myself, I would just skip the fist blow and slap him instead, then kick in the testicles and while he is on the floor twisting in pain, I would take out my penis and pee on him. That is what a pompous, disrespectful, self centered and spoiled rich human phlegm deserves.

SODOM AND GOMORRAH IS AN ABOMINATION ALL IN ITSELF


Lot's wife became "the salt of the earth"

Even if you think that homosexuality is wrong, one would think that incest is by far more repugnant.

Just another example of how the Scriptures are taken out of context and the intended message; in this case is one of extending hospitality and protection to your guests, the whole thing has been twisted and maliciously interpreted as a condemnation of homosexuality.

Piecing together the biblical evidence gives us a picture of Sodom's offense. The sin of Sodom and Gomorrah was some kind of activity—a grave, ongoing, lawless, sensuous activity—that Lot saw and heard and that tormented him as he witnessed it day after day. It was an activity in which the inhabitants indulged the flesh in corrupt desires by going after strange flesh, ultimately bringing upon them the most extensive judgment anywhere in the Bible outside of the book of Revelation.

Was the city destroyed because the men of Sodom tried to rape the angels? The answer is obviously no. God's judgment could not have been for the rapacious attempt itself because His decision to destroy the cities was made days before the encounter (see Genesis 18:20). Further, Peter makes it clear that the wicked activity was ongoing ("day after day"), not a one-time incident. The outcry had already been going up to God for some time.”

And yet, Lot goes on to carry in what to me is one of the most odious and repugnant of all the wicked, corrupt and immoral of crimes: that of “knowing” your own virgin daughters, raping them and impregnating them. And this does not leave behind other passages of the Scriptures like for example the odious Leviticus.
