I am sick of Democrazy


I am so sick of the hypocrazy.  You have politicians, bigots and now a “supreme” court, supporting homophobia and ignorance, while waving a goddamn flag of “democracy” in your face.

Let me be clear. The fact that people voted to enforce bigotry, and they think that is the democracy we strive for, is unbelievably stupid.

Get this people, voting and democracy are GREAT! And I am all for that. It is the idea that you can legislate EVERYTHING, and with extreme bias and ignorance, is LUDICROUS.


Democracy or no, there are some things that are not up for debate, and should not be dealt with through politics and personal ideologies.  Some of these issues include, but are not limited to:

MY BODY

WHO I PARTNER WITH

PRECIOUS ECOSYSTEMS…and many more.

There are FAR more, but I urge you, conservatives, liberals, dems and pubs, to get your collective heads out of your asses.

Mind your own business.

But all this hemming and hawing about the sanctity of marriage being jeopardized without outlawing divorce, and the hullaballoo about abortion when IVF is legal, and adoption is not constantly promoted, AND the rigamarole of YOUR personal misunderstanding of the words SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE,  and “We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” (TJ, JULY 4, 1776), are abominable.


Some wish to deregulate Business and send our jobs overseas, kill wildlife so they can eat, yet legislatively butt their noses into people’s personal lives, regulating love relationships and strip them of the rights promised to all in this land, by our forefathers.

Some things are not up for legislation. A good key question to ask yourself, is “Does this pertain to me specifically?” And if the answer is no, then MYOB. If it does pertain to you specifically, then get off your ass and do something, but stay out of politics, especially if you can’t handle you own shit.

If I get an abortion or marry someone who I can share clothes with, how does this affect YOU? 

But if you are anti abortion, yet are not adopting any of the millions of already born children who need a home, then you are an asshole.

If I am fortunate enough to find a soul mate, regardless of color or creed, or sex, who the hell are you to tell me, how we can PURSUE HAPPINESS? Answer: Nobody. 

Jefferson promised to recognize for me, whatever babies I have or don’t have, and my inevitable partner, those

INALIENABLE RIGHTS.  

Just because you can vote, doesn’t mean you can vote on EVERYTHING. 

I am sick and disappointed in the horrendous miscarriage of justice and the abuse of democracy to further bigotry.

I would have hoped, by now, we would have been done with this tomfoolery.

I am against (Gay) Marriage…


I am, in fact, against marriage altogether. To me, it is absurd and ridiculous. For most participants, it is nothing more than buying into the illusion and building a “RIGHTEOUS” moral basis of ignorance on it. 

I will insert that some of my friends  do  marriage justice by respecting their commitments and being righteous, and are married for good reasons, as my friends are extraordinarily awesome,but the  50% divorce rate and the marriage bigots ruin it for everyone else. SO-props to my married friends, this is not directed at you.

HOWEVER…if the world wants to live in an illusion, and all evidence points to that, then fuck you if you think my gay friends cannot have the same rights as you hetero-asshole bigots.  It should be marriage for all or FOR NONE.

You people who spend all your time thinking about other people’s sex lives and married lives, are nothing but two bit perverts and jack-tards, ( a word I made up yesterday–a cross between an jackass and a retard, which is oddly appropriate here).  I am so sick of you jerks holding RIGHTS hostage based on your own bias and ignorance.

Either this is a country of the right to pursue LIFE, LIBERTY, and HAPPINESS for all, or you are a bunch, (even a small bunch) of hypocrites. 

This kind of segregationist thinking MAKES ME SICK. Screw you California Supreme Court, you do not represent the America I was raised to be “proud” of.  

I have said it before and I will again…I think marriage is absurd, but BY GOD, if you asshole straight people can do it, then my friends should be able to as well. 


Sorry, I am just so pissed right now.

My point is, if I was not clear, that Inalienable Rights is the issue here. Don’t give a shit about who marries whom, but we are guaranteed these INALIENABLE RIGHTS, to ‘all men created equal’, and the yada yada about the Creator, well, in your face Bible thumpers, get it straight, the constitution evokes the Creator, your sovereign Lord, to promise that we are all treated with EQUALITY. 

Jack Black no take backs.

enjoy.

The Major FLAW of Creationism.


While sitting in the Santa Fe Ski Basin cafeteria between runs, I shared a table with a fellow skier during lunch. He naturally inquired about my purpose in these most awesome naturally beautiful mountains settings. I related my experience to him, as a candidate for a Master of Arts in the Eastern Classics.  He was intrigued, I could tell.

He asked me about my course of study, wherein I informed him that I was studying ten thousand years of history of Eastern thought. I saw a dark cloud cross his face (or was it the sky?), when he heard the number ten thousand. Having studied and discussed the history, philosophy, religious history of most major ethnic groups, in every forum thinkable, (i.e. in class, on the streets, in bars, and in churches…et. al), one begins to develop a sixth sense, a tingle, if you will, when you realize you are in the company of someone who BELIEVES the Earth is only 6000 years old.

He was gray haired and not at all new here. Yet, with genuine incredulity, he asked me, “How do THEY determine a historical age of ten thousand years of existence?”

 

I explained to him, logically, that the same math relied upon to determine the “Biblical” timeline of civilization, can be applied using texts that can, for the sake of discussion, be considered contextually equivalent, historically and culturally speaking. That is to say, that if we were to utilize the same formula of [Begats X Average Life span X Genealogical data—in reality using lineage and genealogy with cursory variables inserted for good measure, that are arbitrary, at best), to the religious and historical texts of Asia, such as the Vedic “Bible”—The MahaBharata, or use similar dating to the Sima Qian of China, you would find that their histories trump our Judeo-Christian history, by thousands of years.

Anwho, I know this is going to sound crazy, but there are others, whole continents, that people existed on and have historical genealogies that extend beyond—get this—6000 years. Yes! I know, that blew some minds.

So, did they exist BEFORE God? Oddly enough, the answer is yes, and kind of No. That is another essay.

However, this means, either, the Earth is OLDER than 6000, OR Creationists are calling at least one-third of the world’s population, liars (China + India = 2 Billion—all who share longer histories than Jews, Christians, and Muslims combined), OR Creationism is bullshit.  I have thought long about this, and I am convinced I have narrowed down, all the possible errors in this argument. I am happy to discuss it, as soon as this slapdash oversight has been properly dispensed with, through logic, of course.

 

My dear lunch companion, sat silently stunned. It had never occurred to him. Ever. He said not one more word to me, and I ate my fries, in peace.

I would like to add, though, that this is just one flaw of this ideology, of many. The misappropriation of math, the exploitation of numbers and convolution of “data”,  are the merely the most obvious problems with Creationism.

 It irks me to see the misguided attempt to use numbers to justify an absurd concept to further political agendas fueled by willful ignorance of empirical observation and full utility of the God given gift of Reason.  

And…

If God is just messing with us, how will we know when to take him seriously?
