Prostrate yourselves before The Gay Mafia

Gay Marriage

Hmmm. What to do with that.

Well I will tell you exactly what you can do with that, and that is to stop using the word marriage and gay in the same sentence. By now it may be already too late, if you believe Rush Limbaugh. Though he's not always right, he's usually pretty close.


In his radio show today, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh said defenders of traditional marriage have lost the battle, even though the Supreme Court won’t hand down its decisions for another few months. “I don’t care what the Supreme Court does, this is now inevitable,” Limbaugh said, “and it’s inevitable because we lost the language on this.”
Limbaugh took issue with the idea that the word marriage was already applied to gay couples. Therefore, he asserted, modifiers like “hetero” or “opposite-sex” are now at times added to denote a union between a man and a woman.
“I maintain to you that we lost the issue when we started allowing the word ‘marriage’ to be bastardized and redefined by simply adding words to it – because marriage is one thing, and it was not established on the basis of discrimination. It wasn’t established on the basis of denying people anything,” the radio host said. “Marriage is not a tradition that a bunch of people concocted to be mean to other people with. But we allowed the left to have people believe that it was structured that way.”
Gay people. They've come a long way since the infamous Stonewall Riots in NYC. But it has morphed into a David & Goliath myth; invoking a victimized underclass fighting for its Civil Rights and using violence as a last resort. But is this so? Were Gays so "put upon" that their only resort was to create its own cultural brand? Hardly.

Radicals

The 1960's saw the birth of several movements; including the Gay Liberation Movement. The New Left infused the debate in the 60's with a new brand of activism. To some it seemed that starting a "movement" was something that could lead to greater glory and personal esteem. We saw that beginning in the 60's a large number of Statist groups came to the forefront to Agitate under the banner of Saul Alinsky. These groups publicly decried for greater "freedoms" and for "liberation" but what they secretly wanted was a society that was unconstrained by the constitution, the church and ultimately God.
Whether the Statist group was black, latino, gay or communist - no matter. The ends justified the means. Each Identity Group began to stake out its claim on the Labor of the US Citizen. And make no mistake: the Statists of the 60's are no different than those that are preaching their "victimhood" today. As Mark Levin so eloquently pointed out on page 15 of Liberty and Tyranny, the Statist can be captured in one snapshot.
"The Conservative must accept that the Statist does not share his passion for Liberty and all the good that flows from it. The Statist does not acknowledge the tremendous benefits to society from the individual pursuits of tens of millions of others. The Statist rejects the Founders' idea of the dignity of the individual, who can flourish through ordered Liberty, for one rooted in unpredictability, irrationality and ultimately tyranny.
It is observed that the Statist is dissatisfied with the condition of his own existence. He condemns his fellow man, surroundings and society itself for denying him the fulfillment, success, and adulation he feels he deserves. He is angry, resentful, petulant, and jealous. He is incapable of honest self-assessment, and rejects the honest assessment of himself by others, thereby evading responsibility for his own miserable condition. The Statist searches for significance - even glory - in a Utopian fiction of his own minds' making, the earthly attainment of which he believes, is frustrated by those who do not share it. Therefore he must destroy the civil society piece by piece. For the Statist, Liberty is not a blessing but the enemy." ~ Liberty and Tyranny, page 15. 
Levin goes on to describe that the Statist, thus put upon by the civil society, and expected to conduct himself in an honorable and responsible manner, realizes that he's encumbered with the anger and petulance, and that he must convince the Individual to be dehumanized and controlled. What better way to do that than through the instrumentalities of government. Because who's going to fight City Hall? Once the government becomes the All-encompassing Leviathan, then the citizen has nowhere else to go BUT to the State.

Pay No Attention to the Queen behind that curtain!

So the GLF starts to agitate for more "rights" (whatever that means, since the last time I checked Gays weren't being denied their constitutional rights; and thrown from buildings and placed into Internment Camps). And now ~ Voila! ~ 40+ years later after all the brainwashing, propaganda and demagoguery - we've finally arrived. Now, the Gay Statist believes, we can officially pressure the court through majoritarianism (ie. Mob Rule) into establishing homosexual marriage as Just the Same As traditional marriage. That way, the Gay Mafia can bypass the ballot box and go straight to the courts to get their warped world view institutionalized. And the Liberal-Straights go right along! Seems that nowadays, Conformity is the highest virtue of the Modern Democrat voter. And we know that every Gay person is just like the funny, witty and stylishly dressed Gay couple in the ABC TV show "Modern family' - right? From Mark Steyn's column today:
Gay marriage? It came up at dinner Down Under this time last year, and the prominent Aussie politician on my right said matter-of-factly, "It's not about expanding marriage, it's about destroying marriage."

That would be the most obvious explanation as to why the same societal groups who assured us in the Seventies that marriage was either (a) a "meaningless piece of paper" or (b) institutionalized rape are now insisting it's a universal human right. They've figured out what, say, terrorist-turned-educator Bill Ayers did – that, when it comes to destroying core civilizational institutions, trying to blow them up is less effective than hollowing them out from within.

On the other hand, there are those who argue it's a victory for the powerful undertow of bourgeois values over the surface ripples of sexual transgressiveness: gays will now be as drearily suburban as the rest of us.

A couple of years back, I saw a picture in the paper of two chubby old queens tying the knot at City Hall in Vancouver, and the thought occurred that Western liberalism had finally succeeded in boring all the fun out of homosexuality.

And Steyn demolishes the "interracial marriage" argument here.

SCOTUS tissue

So here we are with SCOTUS hearing arguments from both sides on the Gay Marriage issue. We know how the "lesser lights" on the Supreme Court are going to vote (ie. Sotomayor, Ginsburg and Elaine "Diesel Dyke" Kagan). The only thing their brief will be good for is to wipe your ass with it. Where do I come down on it? I come down on the side of the sovereign individual, and on the side of traditional marriage. You cannot look back at the history of our civilization, including our ancestors who were painting the cave walls at Lasceoux France some 35,000 years ago, and ignore that traditional marriage (ie. between one man, and one woman) was the linchpin of human evolution. What society promoted and enshrined homosexuality and flourished?

Not one. Even Rome fell as a result of the rampant homosexuality that began to flourish after Roman citizens found themselves with too much time and luxury on their hands. From the article:

The fall of the Roman Empire was a result of "the effeminacy of a few in Carthage, a paradise for homosexuals, who infected the many.

"The abhorrent presence of a few gays infected a good part of the (Roman) people," Prof Mattei told Radio Maria, a Catholic radio station.

The Truth

Of course this author took a beating for daring to offend the Gay Mafia and its apparatchiks. You know they've got a society to convert! While less than 3% of Americans are actually Gay, the common belief amongst the population is that between 25 - 40% are Gay. That shows you how effective the Gay Mafia's propaganda machine has been these last 30 years. Everyone knows the story about Matthew Shephard, and while tragic, it was an aberration. But the Gay Mafia pounced on it like a cat grabs a field mouse, and ran with it in order to show "how homophobic America is." Don't believe the Hype. If you want to see what life in these United States of America will be like under a Gay Marriage banner, you need look no farther than Massachusetts. MassResistance put together a nice summation of what the Straights (and their children) have had to deal with since SSM was instituted. It ain't pretty! Back in the day, homosexuality was considered deviant sexual behavior. Gays were considered perverts and sex criminals. Today their lifestyle has been "mainstreamed" through the silver screen (ie. Broke Back Mountain) and TV (Modern Family, Sex and the City). The propaganda is that "they're exactly like you and me." When we know deep down that that isn't the case. Nobody is perfect and in the scope of my experience, many homosexual men that I come in to contact with are sexual abuse survivors. Many were abused at a young age (pre-verbal) and cannot articulate when they "got gay". Instead of demanding that gays deal with their dysfunction and "catch up" to the rest of society, the Liberal-Progressive have deemed that the easier path is to just use government to put the Stamp of Approval on it, and the hell with the ballot box. And just today, Drudge reports that Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is outlawing the adoption of Russian children by foreign, Gay couples. How enlightened the Russian premier is! Gay Marriage is coming, of that I'm sure because the sissyfiscation of our country has already started; and combining that with the Low Information Voter creates a vacuum in which ANYTHING can get pushed through ~ all for "the good of the people" in our Brave New World. God help us.

Epic Mom

You know I love to read.
You long time fans know I don't just read political screeds (ie. my review of Romancing Mommy). Those always point out how ridiculous the Left and their cheerleaders are and can be pretty redundant. I mean after all we've had 5 years of "hilarity" from Barack Obama and after giving up so much of your personal liberty; what more is there to say?

 So the point of my post is this: The other day I was at my favorite Barnes & Noble, stimulating the economy of one of Chicago's more worthy suburbs, when I saw this book sitting on the "new releases" table.



The juxtaposition of the unhappy clay children getting run over by a Tonka Truck was too much to pass up. I picked up the book and flipped it open to a random page. Here is what I read on page 21:
In one of those rare moments of marital serenity when the children were asleep, the laundry was done, and the garbage had been taken out, I looked lovingly into my husband's eyes and asked the question many wives have asked their husbands throughout the ages: would you ever remarry should something happen to me?
I looked at him expectantly, waiting for him to go on about my endless patience, virtue, and great beauty (all lies, I know, but I like to hear it anyway). Instead, he just said, "no."
Confidently, I prodded. But why? Because nobody could compare? Who else can heat up a frozen pizza better? You couldn't find someone else to put up with your rants during a Bears game? Why would you never seek love like ours again?
"Because being married is like having a boss."
To quote the Brits, I was gobsmacked. My response to that statement could be heard across Western Avenue. But we needn't go there today. Instead, let me recount another tale that occurred while I was pregnant with my 3rd son and we had to determine who was going to get "fixed" due to some pregnancy issues. I had suggested he handle the deed. Snip snip done. His response?
"What if, God forbid, something happens to you and my next wife wants kids?"
I had a host of angry words to say about his "next wife."
"Hold on there," he interrupted. "That's no way to talk about my next wife....she hasn't even been born yet."
And this is ultimately why I love my husband. He has a marvelous sense of humor, doesn't let me get too self-indulgent, and refuses to follow the script. The unexpected can be so much more fun. Once I calm down.
The book is Epic Mom: Failing every day a little bit more than you by Marianne Walsh and Julie Harrison. I found myself completely engrossed in the stories and realized that I'd been standing there oblivious to where my kids had wandered off to. They could have been kidnapped, for god's sake, and here I was standing reading a book on motherhood and laughing out loud.

I bought the book.

 I know that this is off topic for my usual political commentary, but when I come across a really good book I like to share it with my Blogger community. At any time you can see what I'm reading by checking the blogroll "What's on my nightstand". I checked Marianne's bio and she's from the Beverly neighborhood and her husband "Joe" is a Chicago Fire-fighter.

I read almost all the book and it is filled with funny stories like the one above, so if you're a husband looking for a good Mothers' Day gift for your wife, mother or sister: look no further. I've saved you a trip to Bed, Bath and Beyond to look for that napkin holder you think your wife desperately needs.

You're welcome.

My status

A sincere thanks to all the people who emailed me, or left comments on the blog regarding my whereabouts these last 4 months. As a conservative, and a concerned citizen, I was appalled that Obama got reelected in November. I really didn't think he had much of a chance at winning. Not like Romney was a strong candidate but he did do very well in Debate 1. The GOP Establishment did everything it would to push someone who "they" thought would win. And now we see the results of the RINO Cabal. My thing was, and still is, we need to put forth someone who stands on principles. That is why I wanted Rick Santorum as our nominee. 70% of this country votes Center Right. Why aren't we sending out candidates who can articulate conservative values? Regardless of the outcome, I just finally realized that after running this blog for 5 years, posting over 900 posts, and doing what I could to get the message of conservatism out in to the blogosphere; that my toils were for naught. Seriously - I feel like I'm spitting into the wind on this one. The Low Information Voters are the ones voting without doing the minimal amount of due diligence on who's running, their background, their experience and their voting record. It's like nobody cares. The fight will continue but now it has devolved into the conservative Republicans versus the RINO establishment. To name names that would be John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and Karl Rove. These men need to step aside and stop sabotaging the Tea Party patriots that are trying to re-establish a constitutional republic here. It is the only antidote to the Tyranny pouring out of this centralized, authoritarian Federal government. I just wanted to put that out there and explain a bit as to why I've been MIA the last few months. As all of us are very busy, myself included, I will try to post more regularly but it won't be more than 2 per month. Thanks for your support, God bless our law enforcement, military and those who love and support them.

The Daily Kaos

 photo breit_no_we_dont_zpsf1b72bbe.jpg Apparently I, and my compatriots, were all wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Who's to blame that we lost the election? An uninformed electorate? A complicit media? A slick and savvy Left Wing spin machine that is working on overdrive? The mainstreaming of Marxist theory vis-a-vis Fox-Piven? Yes. Yes. And Yes. All of the above. Where do we go from here? Well it can get much worse, and it probably will. Consider the following:

The New Greece

* The Greek government just announced that it will seize the bank accounts of its citizens. Deposits above 100,000 euros in both banks, which are not guaranteed under EU law, will be frozen and used to resolve Laiki's debts and recapitalize Bank of Cyprus, the island's biggest, through a deposit/equity conversion. The raid on uninsured Laiki depositors is expected to raise 4.2 billion euros, Eurogroup chairman Jeroen Dijssebloem said. Greece debt is aroun 140% of it's GDP. We have just crested the 100% of our GDP mark, with trillions more spending to come thanks to Harry Reid's new budget. (the first in 4 years, by the way!). And the mayhem won't end there in the EU, The Telegraph is reporting that the EU Chief is claiming that other country's banks and assets will be seized at some point in the future. Isn't Totalitarian just a hip smacking great idea! Team Obama is actively trying to find ways to seize your 401K plans. How will they do it? Here's a snippet of far left labor activist Teresa Ghilarducci discussing how the government plans on confiscating your pension plan. Never heard of Teresa Ghilarducci? Well these are the types of people that Obama and his Far Left cronies surround themselves with. This is why ELECTIONS have CONSEQUENCES!

The Fed

* The Federal Reserve continues to print money (ie. QE3) which is why the stock market has been going UP as of late. It will eventually increase M1 and M3 to the point that inflation starts to rise. Then you will also see a rise in the cost of financing our US Debt. Right now we spend about 4 billion per day to pay the interest on our Federal Debt. If inflation goes up another 3% you could see that cost rise to 15 billion per day.

ObamaCare

* ObamaCare is poised to be implemented and the government has already cranked out 30,000 pages of new regulations. Your medical costs are about to get pretty expensive. Contrary to what this administration said in order to pass the bill, you WILL have lesser care, less options, fewer doctors to choose from, and high premiums. Hey Thanks for Lying to Us, Barry!

EPA Stormtroopers

The EPA, created as the erstwhile defender of all that is clean and good, has evolved in to nothing more than the enforcement arm of the Ultra Left conservation movement. The EPA is responsible for shutting down coal plants and, basically, deindustrializing this nation. You see the Left sees YOU, the citizen consumer, as an obstacle. If it weren't for YOU we'd have birds and baby rabbits frolicking through the woods leaving the perfect carbon footprint in the fresh fallen snow. If you go back 2 years and look at your electricity bills and compare them, you will see a sharp rise. In fact, ALL your household costs are about to go through the roof. And remember: This is all PLANNED by our president.

What can you do

This is just the tip of the iceberg. If you do nothing about it, it will continue unabated. You need to get involved. Plug in to what's going on by visiting conservative news sites. Drudge Report, Michelle Malkin, CNS News and Breitbart News are all very good at keeping the info fresh and SITREPs up to date. And PLEASE support the Tea Party. They're on Facebook as well. The problem is that we have two parties in the nation: There is the destructive (dems) and the stupid (republicans). Unfortunately I belong to the Stupid party. RINOS like Karl Rove, McCain and Graham are too busy maintaining the Establishment instead of fighting against this Creeping Tyranny. The Chaos is coming - if you love this country, understand its history and culture, and want a better future - the time is now to stand up and get involved. As Yoda would say, "Wallflowers do not be. Warriors to fight you must."
