Pithy thoughts....on the recent SCOTUS decisions and the confederate flag

You have seen all the bitching and whining and complaining by the SJW's out there on the news about the confederate battle flag.....

   You have noticed a lot about SJW's I did a post about them a few months ago, here is the article
I will expound the original post I did and add to it.  The media has kept everybody soo distracted and the loony left soo inflamed on this "non issue" because of that stupid kid that decided to walk into a black church and shoot a bunch of people.  Because he had a confederate flag on his car...the loony left has seized on this issue as their "Cause dejour".  With this flag issue, they have managed to wrap up white privilege, slavery, racism, reparations,gun control and many other causes.   The media has assisted in this episode, besides using it to pummel all white people for what one nutcase has done.  Remember to a liberal, there is no individual responsibility and no individual rights.....all is group rights and group identities.  And group rights and identities are granted by a benevolent paternal government.

     Since the media has everybody distracted on this stupid flag issue....you know the one that the SJW's are using to wrap all their causes in it to berate those that don't agree with their current causes,
     You know while the media was driving the drumbeat of "racism" and flogging whatever target they wanted to to drive their agenda. several things happened while people were discussing removing all vestiges of the "old South" and purge the sin of "Racism".  The congress, you know the people that were supposed to be elected to represent OUR interest...well the GOP controlled congress passed the TPP, the "Trans pacific partnership".  The same" you gotta pass it to see what was in it." stuff like Obunglercare...and we will get into that in a minute.    This was the bill that had super secret locations to allow congress members to read it, but they can't make any copies of it. you know, the act that gives President Obama unprecedented power to negotiate treaties...and we know how sharp a negotiator he is....Just look at the awesome deal he got from the taliban...when he traded one turncoat U.S. soldier for 5 commanders....the same person that is giving Iran the kitchen sink in the hope of getting a nuclear treaty with the mad mullah's from Iran....you know the same people that trained people and sent their soldiers to kill Americans in Iraq...the same people that call us the" Big Satan" and Israel the" Little Satan" and they have vowed to cleanse us with nuclear fire.....yeah the same people.    Reassuring ain't it.

     While we have been distracted by the specter of "racism", the supreme court had 2 rulings yesterday and today.  Yesterday...the supreme court...you know the people sworn to uphold the U.S. Constitution....allowed the subsidies for Obunglercare to survive.....they came up with convoluted logic to excuse it...So we have government control of the best medical system in the world...a done deal....and remember how the V.A treated the American veterans with sub par care and a "kill list"..well the American people will get the same kind of care...unless you are part of the "political elite" where you can shop at separate store that actually have items and get quality care that the average American will not be able to get.  Kinda like the Old Soviet Union where there were places you could go and have a good life, that the average Russian wasn't able to enjoy.  We will be getting the same crappy subpar quality of life in the future America.

     Also while we were distracted by the latest case of "Racism", the same supreme court just approved same sex marriage.  I am of two minds of this....what somebody does in the privacy of their bedroom is none of my business, but I do believe that "Marriage is between a man and a women."  If the LGBT community would call what they wanted as "civil unions" as the same rights as a marriage but leave the word marriage in the traditional sense I would have less heartburn over the issues.   I see the social fabric of this country unraveling and I am concerned...I am a student of history and I remember Rome falling to the Goths because their society was totally decadent and hedonistic.  When the Roman citizen was too concerned about themselves and less concerned about society.  They didn't believe in the greatness of Rome anymore and not worthy of defending it.  Now we have the same parallel's in history and I wonder of our Goth's that come to sack our city will look like the denizens from the land of the far East.

     I am not soo much concerned about the gay marriage issue in itself..I am concerned that the LGBT community will double down on all unbelievers to force them to convert or die.  Now it no longer about "tolerance" and having a different belief...it is now for control of your own private thoughts and opinions.
      
.

Several years ago there was a proposition 8 in the land of fruits and nuts called California, it was basically a defense of marriage act stating that marriage is only marriage if it is between a man and a woman.  Well it passed with 7 million votes.  It was struck down later on in the courts as "Unconstitutional".  Well the CEO named Eich had contributed $1000 to it.  He and 70,000 other people who did from the articles that I have read.  First off, how did the donor list get published...Stuff like that is normally confidential.  But as I understand..A newspaper the L.A. Times got hold of the donor list and published it.   This disturbs me to a great deal,  This list was published to support a certain political opinion that" happened"  to support a liberal agenda, Yes I know...I am shocked....   if you have an opinion that isn't politically popular with what is considered "acceptable" in today's society according to the leftist ideology, then you are hounded.  To me this is the new McCarthyism,  We as a formerly free society still have rights to have our own opinion.

    .  I am a fan and a student of history as many who have read my blog will agree with, I put historical stuff and pictures on my blog all the time.  There is a phrase that I like to use and it is very popular, " Those that forget the lessons of history will be doomed to repeat them.".  If you lived in a totalitarian society like the Soviet Union for example, if you had an opinion that was different than the state sponsored belief , you kept it to yourself unless one of your neighbors found out and denounced you to the local party official and you would get an all  expense paid trip to Siberia to work out at one of the labor camps until you either died or worked long enough to survive to do penance for having a thought that was counter to what was the "accepted" groupthink.
    

To give more background on this issue, Mozilla the maker of the popular web browser "Firefox" has been losing its market share to other browsers from the Internet Explorer, Chrome,Safari, Opera and Pale Moon.
    I have used Firefox for many years, I considered it superior to IE it don't have the security glitches that seemed to be prevalent in the Microsoft offering.  Well Eich whom was their chief software guy got the job to reverse the slide of Mozilla and return the software giant back to prominence.  Well when he got the job to fix Mozilla's problems, apparently there was a group that got offended that Eich got the job, Well I am talking about the professional LGBT activist, they stirred up a supposed firestorm.  I say "supposed".  We all know that blog on the conservative side of the blogosphere is that the LSM(Lame Stream Media) decides what is newsworthy and releases it for broad dissemination to the uninformed masses. Provided that it fits certain criteria, usually supporting a liberal agenda or though speak.  Well Mozilla caved like Obama did for Putin and basically "encouraged" Eich to leave the company.
     There are those that said that Eich first amendment rights were violated.  Well here is a quick explanation of 1st amendment rights using Honey Badgers:
Well Mozilla fearing the wraith of the what I call the "Gay Lobby" basically showed him the door.  There is a professional activist group out there that purports to back the LGBT community, They go absolutely bat crap crazy if there is any instance of what they perceive as a slight on the LGBT community.  These activist have a very sensitive skin so anything is a slight and they immediately crank up the twitter outrage, and the facebook postings and anything else that deals with social media. and drum up what they call a firestorm of protest.
   If you do not agree with the left and/or the LGBT Community on anything, they will find a way to exact retribution on you, so beware what you donate to as you exercise your right to free speech. The left is watching, and with a leaky federal government, your information may become available to the other side, illegally.
Remember the following story when you hear Democrats talk about transparency regarding donations to 501(c)4 organizations who do not have to report their lists of donors to the IRS. Also think about the unbridled ire we would hear from the left and the MSM if it was a liberal who was made to resign over the same issue at a conservative company.prop-8-statewide-map
That is what appears to have happened to Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich, the inventor of Java Script, who dared to donate money to a cause of his choice years ago. What was the cause? Eich donated to California Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriages, which won that year only to be overturned by the courts last July.
(See the map of voting on Proposition 8 on the right from 2008. Notice the coastal community vote in yellow, they dominate California on all matters.)
That victory apparently was not enough for the LGBT community because Eich was forced to resign. Out-of-character for we at SUA to report a statement by Bill Maher, but he said this of the whole situation:
“I think there is a gay mafia,” Maher said. “I think if you cross them, you do get whacked.”
But its not just the fact that they were upset, that they are sore winners after seeing the Proposition overturned, they got help from the IRS:
“…this fact first came to light in 2012, after the Internal Revenue Service leaked a copy of the National Organization for Marriage’s 2008 tax return to a gay-advocacy group…” (Read more at Gateway Pundit)
 As I recall the latest statistics, about 3% of the population is gay, and 97 percent of the population are cowed by the activities of 3% of the population.
   Before anybody piles on me for being a "gay hater", I am a conservative libertarian, which basically means that my political beliefs are libertarian with a conservative leanings.  What 2 adult aged people do in the privacy of their bedroom is NONE of my or the government's business.  What I have a problem with is the ramming down my throat is the agenda of the professional gay activists that try to "mainstream" their beliefs into thinking that the "hanging it out there" behavior is acceptable.  I have problems with a heterosexual couple making out in public.  There are supposed to be certain social norms for acceptable behavior in public. You doubt me..? Look what comes out of Hollywood, they have pushed their agenda through the broadcast media.    It is all about power, the more they can influence people the more power they have.  We as a society have been conditioned to be polite and that is a good thing, but they use that politeness against us.  What I don't like is the gestapo like tactics used by the gay grievance industry.  If you have an opinion that runs counter to what they believe, you are an evil person to be shunned and driven away or persecuted like how Islam views people that don't believe in Mohammed.
     Oh *snap* I just mixed Islam and Gayness....I will have both groups pissed at me.   But seriously, what sticks in my craw to use an old southern-ism.  Is that they want everybody else to be tolerant of their beliefs....but they don't reciprocate the belief.  It is supposed to be a 2 way street, but it is all one way.   They want their cake and eat it too.  We as a society are cowed into submissiveness by these antics and instead of telling these professional rabble rousers to go away, we just meekly bow our head because of the Politically correct movement has crushed any dissent to the politically accepted group think.
      We live in what is called a formerly free society, the rules of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, what you could do what ever you wanted to as long as your life, liberty and pursuit of happiness didn't conflict with somebody's else pursuit of the same.   Well it isn't that way anymore,  I am an adult leader in the Boy Scouts of America, My son is a boy scout and I am very proud of him and the other boys that are in the program, the program teaches time tested values of how to succeed in life and prepare you to be a productive citizen of the Republic.  What we basically do is take boys and teach them how to be "good" men.  Well recently the B.S.A. got caught up in the gay lobby because of the exclusion policy that the B.S.A. maintains.  No openly gay leaders are allowed.  Boy Scouts have a " don't ask don't tell" policy.  We don't ask, so you don't tell."  Sexuality has no reason to be involved in this.  We are gender neutral in this.  The same gay activists that push the B.S.A to allow openly gay leaders, if these activists have any kids, their kids will NEVER be in the Boy Scouts, it is just a  perceived glass ceiling to get broken.  This is agenda driven, and not for the interest of the organization. 
     I don't know what will correct this situation, I do know that these people thrive in the Western based societies because we as a society are tolerant of others of different beliefs.  The same gay activists would not survive in a totalitarian society or in a society that is religiously based like a caliphate would be imprisoned or killed.  These people don't appreciate where they live and actively try to tear it down or support those that would.
