Perfect illustration of how Liberals FEEL, while Conservatives THINK

The reactions to the horrific incident in Connecticut, where a young man gunned down his mother, and teachers and students at an elementary school illustrate quite well how Liberals and Conservatives respond differently to such situations.
The nearly-immediate, knee-jerk reaction by the liberal press and “intelligentsia” was NOW CAN WE DISCUSS GUN CONTROL? Now, can we again bring up the subject of banning various types of firearms, preventing law-abiding citizens from defending themselves? Let’s BAN (by law) the instrument of death, not investigate the background of the person wielding the weapon.

While the Conservative press and blogosphere brought up the subject of treatment of mentally-ill people, voluntary or involuntary commitment, and other ways of seeing and dealing with deranged people. They also immediately brought up the violent culture in the modern USA, including hip-hop lyrics, explicit, violent video games, and television, which most children are exposed to at an early age. Might we consider absent parents, and the lack of a father in many American homes as a cause of this kind of gratuitous violence?

Unfortunately, very little will be done on either side, and we can expect more such incidents. Maybe the mainstream media should take a very good look at the very high murder rate in Barack Obama’s Chicago, where they have some of the strictest gun laws in the country.

What Societal Permission of “Homosexual Marriage” Really Means

In case you have not noticed, more states in the USA are re-defining Marriage to include two people of the same sex. For approximately 5,000 years, the concept of Marriage has meant one Man and one Woman, joined by a ceremony in either a civil setting or a religious one, and sometimes both. When one man and one woman are joined in marriage, this forms the start of a new Family, which in most cases leads to their having biological offspring (their children), whom they raise in their household, and bring up according to their beliefs.
The institution of the Family (man,woman,children) has been threatened for many years in Western society, broken apart by Feminism, No-fault Divorce, the Welfare State, and many government programs designed to support single-parent families (thus making marriage not as necessary for economic support of children).

We have seen the deleterious effects of this breakdown of the family: formation of gangs, high crime rates among children from fatherless homes, increased poverty, and multi-generation families with none of their members gainfully employed. The Public Schools have actually encouraged this breakdown by celebrating all family structures as equally desirable, and inculcating children with the belief that they really do not need both a father and a mother in the home (Heather Has Two Mommies). And the most recent manifestation of this breakdown is the acceptance of homosexuals’ “right to marry”. If it spreads to a majority of States, or if our Supreme Court strikes down the Federal Defense of Marriage Act, that will be the final nail in the coffin of the traditional family in the US. Most social scientists agree that the Family is the core institution of a Civil Society, and if that core institution fails, Civil Society is threatened. No matter how homosexuals and their advocates try to play it down, or claim that it does not exist, Human Nature is real, and directs all human behavior. Feminists who tried to raise their male children in a completely non-violent way, denying them building toys or toy weapons, found out, to their chagrin, that their boys “will be boys”, and they found a way to play with whatever they could pretend were weapons. Men and Women ARE different by nature, and they were designed, on purpose, to be complementary, in order to create children to perpetuate the Human Race. We should be VERY careful when we try to tamper with Nature, because the consequences might just not be very pleasant.
And Society, when it tries to re-define Marriage and Family, might end up contributing to its own demise. Remember Ancient Greece? That society glorified homosexuality. Look where they are now.

2014 Update:
I changed the title of this post to use the real word for the concept. I will not let the mainstream media or homosexual lobby dictate my terminology.

“Royalty” in the White House?

You always knew that the Obama family, ensconced in the White House, had expensive tastes. They seem to have made extravagant use of their taxpayer-funded Boeing 747’s (Air Force One and Two) to convey themselves and their friends to New York, Spain, and elsewhere on a series of vacations and last-minute jaunts. But did you know exactly how much YOU are paying to house, staff, fly, and entertain Barack and Michelle and the kids? Please sit down. You have paid ONE POINT FOUR BILLION (yes, Billion with a “B”) DOLLARS the past year to cater to our president’s expensive tastes, extravagant vacations, rounds of golf, dinners in NYC, etc. And your fellow taxpayers have just signed up for another four years of this. Maybe the first family could consider trimming their OWN budget before asking all of US to cough up more of our hard-earned money. What do you think?
