Christian Insanity aka Wild Bill for America on Persecution

It’s always funny to see Christians talk about persecution especially when they were last persecuted around 300 CE.  Afterwards, they were the ones rampaging and persecuting against pagans for centuries.  Now, they’re pulling the victim card while stating that “we need to get back to our Christian roots with Christian public school education.”  Sorry to say, but theocracies don’t work out as they plan.  Instead of providing Heaven on Earth, it becomes Hell on Earth when people believe they are doing “Gods” work.  YOu can’t state you are for liberty and freedom while calling for the 10 Commandments to be the rule of the land.  Commandment #1 especially puts a halt on that whole idea of freedom and liberty.  If people aren’t given the right to believe in one God, many Gods or no Gods, then you don’t have freedom, you have tyranny.

Wild Bill for America is the prime example of one of those supposedly freedom loving Americans who deep down want a theocracy even though he denies such.  When you vociferously call for Christian “education” in public schools and want the 10 Commandments to be the law of the land, I believe that’s proof enough of wanting a Christian theocracy in charge of our country.

With the ascendancy of the Trump Presidency, we ought to be vigilant about what takes place in the United States.  How far will Trump pander to the evangelicals who helped him into power?  If he wants to retain his position in American politics, it’s not inconceivable that Trump will do what it takes to keep his power.  So, it’s up to us Americans to make sure that the swing to extremism doesn’t occur.

Being Colorblind in America

This isn’t about the genetic condition of colorblindness, but rather not acknowledging the importance of ones melanin content of their flesh.  Today, being colorblind is somehow akin to denying the existence of racism in America, which is just a bullshit excuse to keep racialism alive and well in the country.

I was raised colorblind and it was quite effective.  The idea of “black” and “white” didn’t mean jack shit to me.  It made no sense to apply color to a human being.  I hung out with “black” kids, “white” kids and even a half Native American kid without ever a thought coming to my mind about how different they were to me.  In my mind, they weren’t different.  They were kids like me who wanted to have fun and that was it.  It wasn’t until high school did the racialist agenda get packed into my skull.  Race became important to acknowledge and bow down to.  My colorblindness was cast away for awhile as the education  system re-educated me on what race meant to others who weren’t lucky enough to escape the shackles of racialism.

Racialism are the shackles that keep us human beings subservient to the ruling elite.  It keeps us thoroughly divided without ever truly uniting against the common enemy we all have: the oligarchy.  The oligarchy is comprised of the Democrat and Republican parties. Despite their differences on the surface, beneath the exterior of benevolence lies the beating heart of a dark hydra (two heads, same body) that push the racialist agenda onto their constituents.  If power comes from unity then the idea of keeping us divided along racial lines is important to the two party oligarchy that seek to rule over us instead of working for us, which is the way it’s supposed to be.

There are those racialists who keep the lie alive by stating that being colorblind is false and denies racism. Being colorblind does not deny racism especially since we live in a racialist society.  Anyone who denies that racism exists from all sides of our society are delusional.  However, being colorblind and denying the existence of race is the first step in defeating racism.  By keeping race alive it keeps us divided along those lines which in turn keeps racism thriving in the deep, dark depths known white nationalism, black nationalism, hispanic nationalism…etc.  In order to bring down these walls of separation we have to acknowledge the fact that race doesn’t exist and is simply a byproduct of evolution and nothing more.  The melanin content of our skin does not make us any better or any worse than someone with a different melanin skin content.  Once we become educated on the facts will we then finally unite as human beings.

Media Blitz

Hated… time and time again
Force fed, suppress senseless fear of difference
True self suppression, hollow dreams of misery
Blind wish to see
Indifference to be
Freedom, expressionless bouts of legislation
True self repression, take a stance of fall to your needs
Corrupt in the system
Laws bent to other needs
God fearing idiocy
Ignore just pleas
Blind wish to see
Indifference to be
Concrete hypocrisy
Weigh heavily
Idiosyncrasy
Ruling powers be
Idiosyncrasy
Never really free

by The Germs (Darby Crash, Pat Smear)

The news media are like a pack of sharks circling around waiting for their first sniff of blood in the water.  When that blood does seep into the water, the mere thought of a ratings bonanza sends them into frenzy attacking whatever has spilled that blood.  This is what we are seeing whenever Trump says something way out in left field.  I personally can’t stand Trump.  I think he is a phony and a crook.  However, I don’t believe he’s stupid as everyone wants to pretend that he is.  In fact, I see a very intelligent man who knows how to work the media to do his bidding.  Ask yourself this, how do you keep the headlines with your name in it?  Establish controversy by saying something so off the wall that the media can’t ignore it.  This guy knows the media well since he’s been in it so many times before.  He knows how to work the media to keep the limelight on him at all times and thus keeping it off Hillary (unless it’s negative then he lets it be).

I believe the news media is the reason why Trump is, so far, a success.  Yes, I blame the media for putting Trump to the forefront of everything.  I can’t turn on CNN, MSNBC, FOX or any other news station without being bombarded by Trumps Cheeto tan, raccoon eyes, and ridiculous toupee.  I’ve boycotted all news channels because of this.  If the media is so inclined to bashing Trump, why are they ignoring the fact that they are giving free air time each time he says something crazy?  I seriously doubt the Liberal lean of news media and that what interests them more are ratings rather than political persuasion. If indeed the news media wants to crush Trump then they need only to stop being played by him.  We know, though, that they won’t…strike that….they CAN’T resist throwing the limelight on him because, like any addict, they need that ratings fix that is induced by the majority of people who are thrown into a seething anger whenever Trump is mentioned.

This is the media blitz, folks, and it’s tearing our country apart with divisiveness and half truths.  Everyone who hasn’t the time to research everything said by every politician simply parrot what the chosen interpretation of a news blurb whether it’s from Trump instigating foreign hackers or the misconstrued idea of “death panels” contained within a healthcare reform legislation.  The media tells us what they want us to believe rather than objectively stating the news of the day.  Objectivity in the news is long gone and probably will never resurrect from the dead.

I’m Pro-Second Amendment

I believe it’s every Americans right to arm themselves especially in a world so inclined towards violence.  I believe also that we need to use the laws that we already have on the books to make sure that people are safe from gun violence.

I think it’s sexist to tell a woman to use a whistle in the event that she’s about to be assaulted.  Women especially should be able to conceal carry a gun as an alternative to the whistle method that anti-Second Amendment would want.  Their emotional plea for a gun free society is selfish in that it establishes that since they don’t have gun nor need one that no one else should.  Now, there are those who seem anti-gun, but aren’t.  Those folks simply want gun laws that protect people from gun violence.  In fact, my wife has thought (more so lately with the insanity we’re seeing around the world and in our country) about going through the lengthy process of getting a gun and I can’t blame her.  I absolutely support her in doing so.  When I can’t be with her at all times, I believe it’s imperative that she keep herself safe whatever way possible.  She’s not dumb nor irresponsible so it goes without saying that she would do fine owning a gun.

Those who wish to limit access to guns want to blatantly trample on the Constitution, be my guest because I can guarantee that a majority of Americans are pro-Second Amendment especially witnessing the horrors of the 20th Century when fascist/communist governments disarmed their people in order to have absolute control over the people.  What limits should be placed on gun ownership should be a dialog opened up between those want to limits gun ownership and those who don’t.  It needs to be civil and without condescending remarks.  Without this criteria in place nothing will happen that will appeal to both sides of the aisle.

2016: The Fracturing of the Democratic and Republican Parties

Watching the insanity of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dealing with the fallout of her comments on Bernie Sanders and the disunity at the RNC last week, what we’re witnessing is (FINALLY) the fracturing of the two parties dominance over American politics.  Since I’ve been politically active I’ve never seen such deep fissures develop within the two major parties.  I celebrate these developing fissures because it finally allows for the seeds of Third Parties to take root and grow through.  So far, it seems that the Libertarian and Green parties may be able to finally develop momentum to progress and start taking seats of power in DC.

With the apparent sabotage of Bernie Sanders campaign by his own party perhaps we can see him break away from the Democratic Party and take up the reigns of another party that is willing to allow him to do his work in the way he wants to. What happened to Bernie Sanders was the act of a party willing to be tyrannical and unfair in its dealings with those whom they don’t agree with.  Bernie Sanders was right from the get go, that the system is rigged and he was the victim of a rigged system within his own party, the Democratic Party.

Ted Cruz, I wonder if he too was the victim of the rigged system within the Republican Party?  It would only make sense for the ascension of that Prince of Clowns Donald Trump.  Ted Cruz has the integrity to not bow down at the feet of Trump like all of the other fools in Jester Trumps court did at the RNC last week.  However, people have called into question the political future of Ted Cruz within the Republican Party.  That should concern Ted Cruz very much and should get the gears turning in his head whether or not he should jump off the sinking Republican ship and find a Third Party lifeboat waiting for him nearby.

As centrist I would rather be having an election between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.  Such an election would make it difficult to figure whom I’ll vote for, but I’d rather have that than having the option of Criminal Hillary or Criminal Trump.  The current two choices just make me want to write in George Carlins name rather than have to vote for the Democrat or Republican criminal.

Yes, I relish the deep fissures within both the Democrat and Republican parties because their power over American politics will begin (hopefully) to wane allowing for a Third Party to take up the challenge of leadership in America.  A true democracy doesn’t have you choosing trash over garbage.  A true democracy allows the trash, garbage and fresh to campaign for leadership.  So let both parties fall apart, don’t try to mend them.  They must understand that they can’t hold power forever and that eventually their tyranny can end allowing a Third Party into DC.

First World Privilege

Having read an article talking about white, hetero, male, cis {add whatever stupid  label you wish} privilege, I thought the privilege that ALL Americans share which is First World Privilege.  Yes, First World Privilege, the privilege shared by those of all faiths, creeds, color, socio-economic class, gender, orientation and so forth, to complain about their lives being “oppressed” (while not suffering the consequences of what a truly oppressed civilization and people endure, I mean just ask a North Korean or a citizen of Eritrea). An oppressed, truly oppressed, nation and people do not enjoy such privilege. Lets also tack on the access to the plethora of available high tech gadgets such as cellphones, computers, gaming consoles, flat screen TVs and such.  A poor nation does not have this privilege.  Most citizens in poor countries barely have running water let alone access to the internet.

So, next time someone wants to lecture others on their supposed privilege remember, remember to check your First World Privilege.

This goes Right and Left, none of you are oppressed….except in your minds.

The Slaughter of Christians

The evil currently manifesting itself in the Middle East concerning the wholesale slaughter of Christians is sickening and disheartening. While this same evil tactic was used on pagans back in Christianities infancy it was hardly in the scale of genocide currently being seen in the MidEast by Islamic lunatics. Perhaps, given the technology of today being employed, Christians might have reached that level of inhumanity. However, we can sit here and debate what might’ve been, what could’ve been but none of that matters in the Big Picture. We are seeing evil rise up without worldwide opposition and that is disheartening because it means we have become callous, cold hearted creatures due to the fact of who the victims are.

So, non-Christian and Christian alike are probably wondering exactly why I would give a damn.  The answer is simple, since we pagans believe that everything is interconnected it isn’t far fetched to say that their liberty, especially religious liberty, is interconnected with our own liberty.  If Christians are cut down and their faith is outlawed then it won’t be long until every other religion is being trashed and outlawed as well.  We need to understand this and be vigilant against those willing to destroy religious liberty without conscience.

We pagans need to forgive the Christian for what they did to our pagan ancestors and during the Burning Times.  It’s time to put aside our difference in beliefs and stand shoulder to shoulder in defense of freedom and the Constitution of the United States of America.  If we are all to be victorious against the tyrannical usurpers in DC than we need to unite together on common ground.

We need to speak out against the wholesale slaughter of Christians, Jews and moderate Muslims throughout the Middle East.  We need to remember what our ancestors went through and come to grips with how wrong this is no matter that we don’t share their faith.  They are human beings and they need to be defended against the barbaric actions of militant Muslims.  It’s time to stand together and form a shield wall against these vile inhuman creatures.

Media Frenzy

This is the state the media gets into when they dig their claws into the fleshy entrails of a potentially ratings incurring news story such as the Ebola issue, the Israeli-Palestine conflict and whatever else that distracts us plebs from the ineptitude of leadership from Obama, the Democrats AND the Republicans.  Seriously, the category I put the Media, Obama, the Democrats and the Republicans under is called: Scheiss Gruppe or Shit Group in English because that is what they are nothing but useless piles of feces spread out throughout America stinking up the country and being nuisance every step of the way.  However, we should blame ourselves for this over abundance of crap that we have leading and informing this country.  We accept the filth that spills from the toxic mouths of the media and our politicians without ever questioning: what is their agenda.  Everyone of these sordid creatures has one so who is to say that what they conjure up in the bowels of the cesspool processing machine called the Mainstream Media isn’t backed up by an agenda? 

Agendas, like assholes, are owned by everyone in power.  The agenda is simply social engineering and control of an entire people without regard to free will and critical thinking especially in this digital age.  I mean just look at how some dating site and Facebook tried to skew peoples motives by either pairing two people who had nothing in common and manipulation of newsfeeds.  If the fact that two web based corporations experimenting on people without prior knowledge isn’t the epitome of agendas then I have no idea what is anymore.

So, what are you? A drone to be ordered around by the elitist oligarchs in power or a human being with the power of free will?  Will you succumb to the odious attempts by the Mainstream Media and the political powers that be (remember these are Obama, the Democrats and the Republicans) and pick a dubious side that really dehumanizes the supposed opponent or will you employ critical thinking and realize that the media and the political oligarchs are nothing but the biggest group of shit stirrers around just using you, the people, as pawns in their version of Game of Thrones?

Wake up!

Why I Believe What I Believe

At times I become so apathetic towards politics that I simply slip away for months without ever looking at a news website, watching Glenn Beck or even writing in this blog, but recently my girlfriend and I plan on having a child and thus has become my duty to become vigilant when it comes to politics both here in the US and abroad.  As our society becomes more globalization helped along by technology it’s prudent to stay on top of current events such as the Crisis in Iraq and Common Core because the long-term ramifications for our future child will be poignant.

So what exactly do I believe?  It’s better to just list my beliefs:

I believe in gay marriage
How exactly do two people of the same gender marrying affect me?  It seriously doesn’t much like Brittany Spears and other celebrities who abuse the institution of marriage for their own attention whoring.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment
The right for people to own guns should always be upheld because it ensures that the government will always be afraid of it’s citizens because they can and will always be armed to the teeth.  That’s how it should be, the government fearing its citizens rather than citizens being fearful of their government.

I believe in religious rights
Christians today are taking a pounding by secularists maybe for good reason, but bashing an entire religion on the merits of a few really is silly.  Plus, banning things like a cross erected 5 decades ago bought and paid for by ordinary citizens is even more silly.  Leave it alone, it’s a memorial to the dead.  Also, a Christian business should be given the right to put their business at risk by denying patronage to gay couples.  In the end, they’ll revoke their own ban due to low amount of customers patronizing their business.

I believe Common Core is evil
Common Core reduces competition between good and bad schools by leveling the playing field.  It also brings with it strange ways of doing math for example.  The new way of math makes it harder for parents to their duty as parents and help their children scholastically.  It makes schools more dependent on the Federal government as opposed to local communities and the people who fund those schools with their tax money.  Taking examples from totalitarian and failing countries is not a good way to reform our education system.

I believe in Universal Healthcare
Obamacare is the biggest foul up ever to grace our country.  I believe in Universal Healthcare, but I think it needs a more 21st Century revision in order to make it work effectively without putting peoples lives at risk.  It needs to take the Hippocratic Oath to the fullest extent.  It doesn’t need to be the rationed out healthcare that Conservatives are afraid of.  With brilliant minds and innovation we Americans could make it work better than the European brand of Universal Healthcare.

I believe in School Choice
Every parent should be able to choose what type of school their child goes to whether it’s public or private or even home schooling  and have it be affordable as well. The misplaced fear in George W. Bush voucher program was nothing more than Liberals wishing to subjugate parental choice.  This to me is treasonous in that Liberals are forgoing a childs future for their own political gain.

I believe in being environmentally friendly
Lets face it, no one wants dirty air, polluted waters or to have the beautiful scenery that Nature bestows upon us to be blotted out by vast concrete and asphalt strip malls and parking lots.  So, it is our duty as sentient beings to want to take care of the environment and make sure no more animals go extinct because of our existence.

I don’t believe Socialism/Communism is the answer
Now, I’m sure the naysayers will be quick to point out that my support of Universal Healthcare is hypocritical, however I don’t believe so.  I can accept one component of an ideology without supporting the entire ideology itself.  Communism/Socialism just simply does not work when applied to the real world.  It lacks factoring in the fact that it’s usurping rights from people and human nature itself.

I believe Capitalism does need to be reformed for the 21st Century
The current form of capitalism is based off the Industrial Revolution, which has long since withered away to allow the Information/Digital Revolution to flourish, so it’s without any doubt that capitalism needs to be retrofitted for our 21st Century reality.  Factories and other industries are slowly but surely giving way to automation and having capitalism still holding on the ancient remains of the Industrial Revolution does nothing to help people and in fact gives the Communists/Socialists credence in their ideology that capitalism is slowly dying.

I don’t believe in amnesty for illegals
As someone who is the son of a legal immigrant from Latin America, giving amnesty and all these amenities to illegal, law-breaking immigrants is a slap in the face to those who went through the process of citizenship the legal way. If these illegals want citizenship then they need to go about it the way everyone has.

I believe in a secured border
We need to secure our border and even put up an extensive wall along our border in order to secure our nation from illegal immigration and from intrusions from Mexican drug cartels and the Mexican military.

I believe political correctness is wrong
People need to really grow a thick skin and stop being offended by every little thing that comes out. What kind of life is it to find offense at everything around you? You don’t have the right to not be offended. Welcome to reality.

I believe in a non-racist, all inclusive nationalism
I think its important that all legal American citizens regardless of race, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion and political ideology to express pride in their country. Since pride in country tends to run contrary of the internationalist beliefs of most Left leaning ideologies the opposing idea is of course nationalism. Nationalism isn’t inherently racist in nature and especially with a diverse country such as America nationalism can not be racist.

I support the 10th Amendment
The idea of giving more power to the states and the people and restricting power given to the Federal government is just common sense. As we can clearly see the power lust that Federal government has is a clear and present danger to American citizens. We need to get back rights for the states to choose what is good for their state and not be bullied by the government to accept things the Federal government wants to impose like Common Core.

There’s more things I can bullet point that I support, but it tends to be a long list so this gives you an idea of why I believe in what I believe and why I have a problem simply sticking to any party line. I’m just some person stuck in the center of politics and find the Left-Right rift to be ridiculous.

The Importance of Uniting Differences

Us Heathens always are against the Christians in various ways.  We remember the unjust deeds they wrought upon our Heathen ancestors, but what have Christians done to us TODAY? Personally, they may try to sway me towards their beliefs by saying things like I worship fake gods, that Satan has wooed me with temptation into another religion or whatever else.  However, the keyword is they SAID these things which is quite different than having a sword against your neck with a rabid armored man saying, “Convert or die!”.  I make it no secret that I try my best to bridge the gap between Christians and Heathens/Pagans, because I feel it’s important to get over the past without forgetting and losing vigilance and to unite together to preserve Liberty and our Constitution.

Why are Christians important to the security of our own faith?  Every freedom are like dominoes, when one falls the others follow suit.  So, if Christianity falls it’s highly probable that all other faiths will fall with it.  I don’t care if you don’t like their religion, but you need to understand why it’s important that when the Christian is being attacked it is our duty to history to come to their aid.  Same goes for Christians, if you see other faiths being attacked unjustly it is your duty to come to their aid in order to secure the future of your religion as well.  You don’t have to like us or agree with us, but you too need to see the importance of securing the right of worship for others.  And I say our duty to history because what have we truly learned from the past when a new religion/belief comes in to replace the old?

Who is more of a danger these days?  Is it the fundamentalist Christian or the fundamentalist Islam?  I see more killings being made in the name of Islam rather than Christianity these days so it’s a no-brainer on who is a clear and present danger these days.  I also see the Federal government willing to strip liberty from the masses more so than Christians these days.  The combined forces of the Federal government wanting to expand its dominion over the people with Islamo-fascism wanting the same thing pose a great threat to ordinary Americans and every other human being who enjoy their freedoms.

We need to come together whether you’re Christian Jewish, Heathen, Buddhist, Muslim, Atheist, Pantheist, Agnostic, Taoist, Hindu, Pastafarian,  Confucian and whatever other belief out there, because if we don’t keeping ourselves divided we’ll lose our country and our freedoms.  Keeping to the divided mindset will only lead us down to the dungeons of slavery.  We’ll all live on our knees licking the bootheels of our oppressors whether it’s the American Federal Government or the Islamic Fascists.  No matter who it is that conquers us because we kept ourselves so thoroughly divided…We. Will. Be. Slaves!  There’s no other way to put it than that. So, it’s up to us to change the course of history and swing it away from enslavement and back towards Liberty and Freedom with the Constitution as our absolute guide.

So America, what shall it be?  Freedom?  or… Slavery?
