Oh, this just keeps getting….

Oh, this just keeps getting wackier by the day. Allegations of sexual misconduct are knocking on the door of Congress again. Another democrat, this time he is a member of the House. It has been said that Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely. It would appear that some of our “esteemed” congress critters are absolutely corrupt.

I have said many times before, as I am sure others have said, government is all about power and control. It is a vicious circle more power equals more control, more control equals more power and on it goes.

When the seats of both chambers are occupied there is a grand total of 535 members of congress, they are our duly elected lawmakers. There does seem to be a problem with some of the duly elected congress critters, they seem not to possess the power to control themselves. Yet they have the power to control the rest of us, that seems kind of wacky.

To date the two that have been outed are democrats, one sitting Senator and one sitting Representative, one from each chamber. There have been no demands from other democrats of either chamber calling for either of these two to resign. There has been no call from the news media demanding that these two democrats resign. One liberal news outlet even suggested the senator was doing a mock grope.

It gets even wackier. Apparently there is a fund set aside to cover allegations from staff against congress critters. If congress “controls the purse strings” how did this hush fund become funded? What piece of legislation was this hush money tied to? How does it get replenished? Obviously it is tax-payer funded, I doubt that the congress creeps put a little in the “kitty” on each payday. This should piss off every tax-payer in this country. Tax-payer money being used to pay for congressional members misdeeds. What president signed the piece of legislation into law that keeps this “slush fund” funded into eternity? Is this discretionary or non-discretionary spending? It was the lack of discretion that caused it.

Hold on the wackiness is not over. There was a female representative who recently came out and talked about the ongoing problem of sexual harassment and sexual misconduct in congress, though she wont say names. She wants to reform the way the system works. She does not want to do away with the slush fund. Why not?

So what does congress plan to do to clean up its act? They will have mandatory classes on sexual harassment every two years.

Oh, my word

Now we have “toxic masculinity”, good grief really. The Florida Democratic Party chairman has resigned(no date as of yet)because he “feels” like he is “creepy”, making women nervous in his presence. Creating a hostile and creepy work environment. So another male has jumped onto the “sword”, a self-sacrifice. Perhaps a better term would be self-castration. One female had said that he has a lot of “boob stuff” in his office, including “breast shaped” stress balls on his desk.

Given the fact that he is, soon to be was, a party official and many people, both men and women, may visit his office he should have exercised more or at least some discretion. Tacky to say the least. An office with public access should reflect a great amount of professionalism, the same amount of professionalism that one should display and act on in their public life. It would appear that many in politics fail to understand they have no private life, so they must be on their best behavior at all times. Sadly many in politics, both male and female think the rules, ethics and morality, do not apply to them. They are above all of that.

How one decorates his or her own personal office is their own business. If one chooses to decorate his or her own personal office in a bawdy manner do remember where you are when you get the urge to take a selfie. Under no circumstances should one ever take a selfie in their drawers, or in a negligee.

The rest of this post deals with the absurdity of this so-called “toxic masculinity”.

First off masculinity is not toxic to men or society as a whole. This world would be in a terrible state if it were not for masculinity.
Masculinity is defined as; 1a Male 1b having qualities appropriate to or usually associated with a man.
Toxic is defined as; 1 containing or being poisonous material especially when capable of causing death or serious debilitation.
Therefore if masculinity was toxic there would be no males.

If the following offends you, you need to get a grip and grow up.

I very seriously doubt that any female has ever screamed “toxic masculinity” when a Man(capital M)stepped to her aid to defend her or her honor. I used a capital M because sadly there are some males in our society that are men(little m). But then I am Southern bred and Southern raised. Masculine but not toxic Good manners and all.

A male looking at a female is not visual rape. Women, most but not all, go to great lengths to look their best. The ones that do they wear clothes that compliment their figure. Us men call the clothes they wear, “Look at me clothes”. Do I look? Hell yea. Will I apologize for looking? Hell naw. Will I gouge my eyes out for looking to prevent me from doing it again or taking a second look? Again, Hell naw.

Before I forget, we have something in the South called GRITS. No not grits, but GRITS, an acronym for Girls Raised In The South. Some drive trucks, some drive what some of us call; Look at me trucks”. They have look at me clothes and look at me trucks, you should see them. Do we look? Hell yea. Will we apologize for looking? Hell naw. Will we gouge our eyes out for looking to prevent us from doing it again or taking a second look? Again, Hell naw.

Now I ask you girls this. If you get all gussied up and no man(big M or little m)looks would you be offended. Keep this up and soon no one will look, no matter how loud you or your attire screams “Look At Me”.

Masculinity is not toxic. Wussification is toxic. The wussification of males will cause the death of manhood, it is a debilitating condition is left untreated.

No Damsel in distress was ever, nor will she ever be, rescued by a wuss.

Is this where all of this leads?

Could it be this freaking simple? I am referring to the recent outing of males as sexual deviants.

The political landscape has long been dominated by males, as has the business and banking world. They still have a hard time coming to grips with the fact that their candidate for president lost. They most likely and probably never will come to grips with that fact. They have blamed everything under the sun for her loss but her. They have even claimed that she lost because males were not willing or ready to vote for a woman for president.

The allegations made against males and their sexual misconduct towards women is coming at a dizzying pace, seems like it will never stop. And it wont until all males are portrayed as sexual deviants. Sexual deviants who cant be trusted in the company of a woman. A sexual deviant who caint(can not and aint gonna)control himself. There have even been allegations leveled a males for attempting or attempting to have their way with underage(minor)boys and/or girls.

Are they trying to remake the political landscape of this Republic? Absolutely. But more than that they intend to remake the entire landscape of this Republic. The goal, perhaps is to remove all males from positions of power or authority based on the actions of a few.

Thus far the only allegations of inappropriate sexual behavior that has been exposed has been against males. To date and to the best of my recollection no females have been accused of such “indiscretions”. This is most likely due to the double standards when it comes to males and females.

Allow me to explain. When a male teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, whether the student female or male, there is outcry to lock him up and throw away the key. But if a female teacher is accused of having inappropriate relations with a student, especially if the student is a male, some say “where was she when I was in school”. So therefore I don’t expect any males will come out under the hashtag me too. Males exploits are put out for the world to see, while the females exploits remain virtually invisible.

There are some in both sexes, male and female, that will take advantage of their position or power for their own gains, whether it be for sexual(gratification)or financial(personal profit)reasons.

Now let me say this, there are males and females in society that are more than willing to be used, if their being used will get them to where they want to be. Those willing to be used are not victims.

By all means those that are victims should expose those that use others, whether male or female. Having power and/or authority don’t give anyone, male or female, the right to whatever or whoever they see or can get their hands on. Keep your hands to yourself and keep a civil tongue in your head.

In this post I have used the word “they” a lot. Now let me say who “they” are. They are the Social Justice Warriors from the Department of Fairness and Equality.

I have also used the words male and female. That is because that was the way we as mankind were created by God, man and woman.

This is what all of this boils down to, the Social Justice Warriors want a woman to be president. No matter the cost. No matter if she is qualified. No matter her morals or the apparent lack of her morals. I mean after all, women can be trusted, right? The only qualification she must possess is to not be a man and social justice would have prevailed, in their view.

I cant help but wonder if that woman were elected president would all of these allegations come about? Are the allegations a result of her loss? We will never know, because thankfully she was not elected. I suspect though that silence would have prevailed, if she had won the election.

They judge themselves

Now what are they going to do? A sitting democrat Senator has had his behavior exposed, inappropriate to say the least. A sitting democrat Senator taking advantage of a female, at the time, co-worker. I would venture to say that this so-called comedian at that time, now a sitting democrat Senator was the first name on the marquis, the head-liner. If he was the senior member of the cast, he may have assumed what he did was his “right”. I dont know much about this former so-called comedian, I dont know if he a had a wife at the time or not. If he did, we had a term for this type of individual while I was in the Army. We called these types of individuals “Geographical Bachelors”, meaning that if he and his wife were in different zip codes he was a bachelor. Some people took that same stance if they and their spouse were in different area codes, sometimes in different buildings, or rooms within the same building. The clown had the attitude that all that was in his sight and everything within his grasp was his for the taking, he may still have the same attitude.

One would think that with all of the “righteous indignation” the establishment politicians have expressed over the allegations against the republican nominee in the Alabama senate race, demanding that he step aside they would take the same approach with this “clown”. But no, they will take a different approach. They do protect their own. They are going to refer the Senator to the Ethics Committee. They, other senators will decide if the clown’s behavior was ethical or not, he apparently cant. If he is found unethical in this they will name his punishment. Patrick Henry was right about this too. There really is no accountability in congress.

Speaking of Ethics Committees, how many of you need a committee to tell you if you have acted ethically or not? Most of us know the difference between ethical and unethical conduct without the benefit of a committee. Apparently this clown thought his behavior was acceptable.

Seems to me this clown was loud while condemning the actions of a Hollywood mogul. Bit dogs do holler first, and the loudest.

Now we have this, a congresswoman has come out under the hashtag me too. What she said in her testimony was to say the least startling. I believe she referred to congress as a “breeding ground” of sexual misconduct. I would say that they have the morals of an alley cat, but I would not want to condemn alley cats.

This kind of behavior did not just start yesterday. As a side note saying I am sorry or apologizing does not make it right. Using your position to make advances to take advantage of another is just bad manners, there is no excuse for bad manners. Now let me address your morals for just a minute, your morals are low. Just how low you ask? Your morals are lower than whale feces, and whale feces is on the bottom of the ocean.

So is this a failure of the individual to control him/her self or of congressional leadership? Well the answer is both, but it is the individuals responsibility to control him/her self. The reason I said both is because the current leaders were not always leaders they were at one time followers. But the leaders of today had to have seen what was going on then. Some of the members of congress have been around for years and years, some for decades.

So as a Senator says, “this is the first shoe to drop, more shoes will drop”. This I fear is going to grow and grow, the clown is not the only one, just the first one to be named.

So what is the answer? We the voters need to clean house. Repeal the 17th Amendment, let the States once again send their Senators.

Where can this go wrong?

Perhaps a better question would be; How many ways can this go wrong? Has the Army lost its ever-loving mind?

USA Today and other outlets report that the Army lifts ban on recruits with mental health history. As reported according to documents obtained by USA Today, people with a history of “self-mutilation”(cutters), bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August. Why was it unannounced and have any waivers been granted for these mental health issues? The fiscal year has long passed.

It appears that once again the Army is having a hard time meeting its recruiting goals. It seems that fewer and fewer qualified applicants are not volunteering to serve. So to counter that the Army is willing to accept sub-standard applicants. Lowering the standards to meet the objective, good freaking grief. Perhaps the focus should be on retention rather than recruiting.

I mean look at the list above that the Army is willing to give a waiver for, those are some pretty serious issues. The closer it gets to the end of the fiscal year the easier it will become to obtain those waivers, to meet recruiting goals. What effect will those mental health issues have on unit readiness? Units scheduled for deployment will take to the field under-strength, possibly severely under-strength while some of their members are receiving treatment. It would be difficult if not impossible to be undergoing counseling while performing ones duties. How about the medications required to offset the mental health issues?

On a side note, again looking at the list of mental health issues, how many of them would result in failing a background check when attempting to purchase a personal firearm?

So the Army is willing to accept sub-standard recruits. Sub-standard recruits will yield sub-standard soldiers. You reap what you sow. Was the murderous savage in Texas a sub-standard recruit? How about all of the other former members of the military who committed mass murders(Florida and D.C. come to mind), were they sub-standard recruits? Was the deserter who got at least 6 killed and several more severely wounded while looking for his sorry-ass, was he a sub-standard recruit? He certainly was a sub-standard soldier, if he could have even been called a soldier.

If these waivers are granted and as times go on we may find our military being led by sub-standard leaders, who were once sub-standard recruits. You reap what you sow. Decisions being made by leaders who require medication just to cope. What happens if they come off their medications? What about the one who must be gone for a minute to relieve tension?

Lets visit drug abuse for just a minute. Lets discuss the use of marijuana, illegal according to federal law, legalized in some states for recreational use. We have now come to an unintended consequence of recreational pot. It bars people from military service.

Now lets just say that waivers are granted and the individual enters the Army. He or she will be trained in the use of weapons, up to and including machine guns. Everybody in the Army is a “grunt”, not matter your military occupational specialty(MOS)you are a rifleman. Keep in mind most of these issues would be grounds to be denied the purchase of a personal firearm. Keep in mind also that the mental capacity of each murderous savage is the first thing questioned. If the individual has a history of mental health problems the question of the day becomes; How was this person able to buy firearms?

So I ask you this, why would the Army train persons who not only pose a possible menace to themselves but pose a possible menace to others? Our military members face enough danger already are they supposed to be subjected to even more. Who gets the blame when a member of our military “goes off the rails” while in combat, training or just hanging out back in garrison? What would be the outcome of an “unhinged” person “losing control”? A really well trained person?

So I leave you with this. The local and state law-enforcement agencies are facing shortages of qualified applicants just like the military. Will they too be forced to lower their standards just to meet recruiting goals? Think about it. The standard for tattoos is what now?

I wonder if….

It would seem that nearly all of the congress critters and almost all of the talking-heads have already convicted Judge Roy Moore from the Great State of Alabama of sexual improprieties. Not only have they already convicted him they demand that he step aside in the Senate race. One of the enlightened clowns presently holding a seat in the senate has already said that “He has no place in the Senate”. At least one has said that Judge Moore must prove his innocence. Judge Moore has already been convicted in the court of opinion. Judge Moore has not, I repeat has not, been convicted in a court of law. They have even began a campaign to find a write-in candidate in the senate race. One would expect this from the other party. Judge Moore won the republican primary in Alabama and the afore-mentioned statements are coming from republicans. It seems to me that the republicans will torpedo their own, wanting and willing to lose the election and the seat. Or is it just they did not get the candidate they wanted? Seems to me the republicans are trying to put a monkey wrench into the works.

It has even been said by some Judge Moore should step aside and let the party select a nominee. They actually think the party machine is smarter than the voters who supported Judge Moore. Seems to me not all that long ago they wanted then candidate Trump, then nominee and now President Trump to step aside because of allegations of improprieties that were later proven false. Then as now they did not get the candidate they wanted.

Judge Moore as well as any other person accused of a crime should be and is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a Court of Law. A matter of Fact not a matter of Opinion. This still is America is it not? Since when is it the defendants responsibility to prove his innocence?

So I wonder if allegations of improprieties(taking liberties)were leveled at a sitting member of Congress, would they step aside? Would they succumb to opinion? I doubt they would. But the republicans in Congress are guilty of taking liberties, they have abused the voters that supported them. Constituent abuse. They have lied to the voters. Come on, confess your improprieties and step aside.

I question the timing of these allegations. They did not surface during the primaries. Why now?

You were willing to have a democrat president just not to have a President Trump. Anybody but Trump you said. You are willing to have a democrat senator just not to have a Senator Moore. Anybody but Moore you are saying.

Choose wisely Alabama.

You the republicans are the Jacobins of today. The ends justify the means.

Some do, some dont

Some get it, some dont and probably never will.

The latest mass killing(murdering)occurred in a Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas. This was not the only shooting(murdering)that has occurred in a Christian House of Worship. Before the one in Texas there was one in Tennessee. Before the one in Tennessee there was one in South Carolina.

The one in Tennessee and the one in Texas have one thing in common. A concerned citizen brought the carnage to a halt. If I recall correctly the murdering at the Antioch Baptist Church was stopped by an Usher who wrestled the attacker to the ground. Again if I recall correctly the attacker(murderous savage)was shot in the leg. The murdering at the First Baptist Church was also brought to a halt by a concerned citizen. In this attack the concerned citizen exchanged fire with the attacker, as reported the attacker(again a murderous savage)was shot during the exchange. In the one in South Carolina the attacker(and again a murderous savage)was able to flee the scene, only to be captured a short time later. The murderous savage in Texas was not only shot, but when he attempted to flee was subsequently chased down by two townsfolk, including the one who had exchanged fire with and wounded the murderous savage.

This needs to be said and understood by all. In each of these instances the murderous savage knew he would face little if any resistance. They basically had the upper hand, the advantage if you will. They are brave when they have the advantage, not so much when they encounter resistance. None of the three murderous savages had planned on any meeting any real resistance.

I would like to point this out about society in this Republic today. The concerned citizen in Texas who grabbed his rifle and brought the savagery to an end is more the exception than the rule. Most in our society would have chosen not to get involved, if they did get involved it would have only been to the extent of grabbing their cellphone and making a video. This man chose to get involved, he grabbed his rifle(not a cellphone)and placing himself in great danger engaged the threat. He placed himself in great peril to defend the defenseless. To me that is the definition of a true Hero. This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit, heroic and decisive action in the face of great peril. The other man, the driver of the truck also chose to get involved. This man also demonstrated great courage during the chase, determined to not let the murderous savage escape. Both of these men are exemplary and courageous in deed and character.

Now lets move on to those who dont get it and probably never will. This would be the gun control crowd, actually it should be called the “cult of gun control”. I call it a cult because to them it is a religion, but it is a cult. It is a false religion based on a false premise. It is based on the premise that what they call “gun crime” can be eliminated by placing further restrictions on law-abiding citizens. Passing laws and even more laws have no effect on those that choose to ignore or break the laws. If the rights of the citizens are infringed the only effect that would have would to be to provide even more victims of those who use a gun to commit a crime. I call the gun control a cult for another reason, they have Profits, false Profits. They follow a Profit who calls for more gun control while at the same time they are surrounded by armed security. They have guns to protect them while they seek to disarm others. The false “religion” of gun control headed by a false Profit, that makes it a cult.

Now we have a republican Senator from Texas siding with and reaching out to the democrats on gun control. This is a democrat windfall. It sounds as simple as writing legislation to enforce and strengthen laws on the books, but it is not that simple. It will not stop with legislation to fix existing legislation, it will lead to “comprehensive reform”. Currently the Air Force is being blamed for the failure on its part in reporting the conviction of the murderous savage in Texas. To me it is just another example of the government being above the law. When the government makes a mistake they just say “oops”. What happens to the rest of us if we make a similar mistake?

Now let’s go to those that get it. Once again a bad guy with a gun was stopped by a good guy with a gun. We have a sheriff here in Florida that has come out to say, “if you have a permit and a gun take your gun with you”. He gets it and so should you. I agree with what he has said.

You are your own “first line of defense”. Everyone who owns a gun should be proficient, range time and holster drills. I would like to say this, carrying a firearm comes with great responsibility. If you are not willing to accept that responsibility them for God’s sake do not carry. Let me point this out, the gun in your holster is not a “good luck charm”. Just because you have a concealed weapon and a permit is no guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen. Be proficient. If you want to carry a “good luck charm” get a rabbit’s foot, but then ask yourself what happen to the rest of the rabbit?

Now this is going to bring us to the subject of guns in Church. This is a subject that most congregations are unwilling to discuss. But it must be discussed. Before beginning with this I would like to point out this. We should be walking about this Republic everyday without a care in the world. We should be safe in our schools, offices, parks and everywhere we go, but things are different now.

There are many places that one would believe they were absolutely safe, but for today I will address only two. We should feel absolute safety in these two places, the sanctuary of the womb and the Sanctuary of the Church. Taking a little side road for just a minute. Let me go back to the “cult of gun control” for just a minute. The same people who favor gun control are the same people who favor abortion on demand. I find this to be more than ironic, they are perfectly willing to support abortion, which is not a Constitutional Right but oppose the private ownership of guns which is a Constitutional Right. Since 1973 it has been estimated that over 53 million babies have been murdered in the mother’s womb. The pro-choice “abortion cult” has their false Profits, the same as the “gun control cult”. The ones who push abortion have children and grand children. Those that support abortion only do so because their mothers chose life.

Now let’s go back to guns in the Church. This is going to cause angst in some Churches. I am of the opinion that every Church in this Republic have some sort of Church Protection Plan. I am also of the opinion that every male in the congregation carry his own personal firearm, that is, if he is trained, proficient and holds a permit if required and most importantly will to take on that responsibility. Some Pastors are going to be against guns in the Church. Some of the Congregation like is going to be opposed to guns in the Church. But I remind you of this you are your own and best first line of defense. As I have said before when a wolf comes it is best to have some wolf repellant.

There are those who claim that a handgun is not match for a rifle. Well that is true, but something is better than nothing. For a handgun to be effective against a rifle, the distance must be closed, either by the defender or the murderous savage. I am not for turning every Church in this Republic into a bristling fortress, but Churches like all “soft” targets must be “hardened”. We want people to come to Church and come to Jesus. We could lock our doors, but locks only keep honest people honest.

Above when I said “This man exemplifies the meaning of the American Spirit heroic and decisive”, that was and is true but it exemplified more than just the American Spirit. He exemplified the Christian Spirit. Willing to lay down his life for a friend. The Christian American Spirit.
