J’accuse and Your Guilt is Sealed

 

The new left is quite different from the liberals who used to make up the left. The new left is activist and refuses to permit people to oppose their dictums. Your religious beliefs are inconsequential in the world they are preparing for the future. Your political leanings must be corrected until you yield to their beliefs. Nothing can be permitted in opposition. Change has become the order of their day, their night and any time they spend awake. There can be no higher calling than the transition of society’s norms to match their beliefs. What is wonderful is how accepting these leftists can be when you talk their talk and walk their walk. They have their definition of a wonderful new age where everybody is completely equal. There will be no difference in treatment between men and women because gender, sexual is a word which they have deemed offensive so we cannot use such here, identity at birth is irrelevant to them as they can find one male and one female who are equal at any task. Power lifting, take the women’s world heavyweight record holder and some man who has never pressed weights in his life and has a figure so slight that he hardly seems to have muscles at all, the woman can out lift him so proof positive. Running, they can find a woman who is faster than some man. Whatever you can find and there is some pairing of a particular woman and a particular man where the woman is equal or superior. Tennis has already been established, as women are superior after Billie Jean King defeated Bobby Riggs. Let us look at some of the results of these policies.

 

This was sufficient proof of equality to permit women into combat units. Never mind that some of the enemies they may face believe that women captured on a battlefield are to be used for the pleasuring the capturing troops as their reward for such a prize. These enemies know that their brutalizing of their enemies’ women is a particular insult which is why they will use captured women in propaganda which proves their superiority over the enemy which is incapable of protecting their delicate flowers, their women. Many of the developed world, where these leftists run unchecked, are incapable of understanding that there are those in the world whose societies differ greatly from the developed world. These societies are less advanced and less sophisticated in their moral principles holding on to mores discarded by the developed world anywhere from a century to millennia ago. Acts which they believe to be normal practice and acceptable as a means of proving their superiority using their beliefs that men are superior to women and because of this superiority then a brave and strong man would protect a woman at all costs and capturing and debasing an enemies women was a measure of dominance.

 

Many soldiers in the developed world’s armies know this and, because of their knowledge, they will go to extremes to prevent any woman in their charge from being taken by the enemy, even at the cost of their own lives. Despite evidence presented proving this danger would be real, the leftists demanded that women be permitted to serve in combat units. But this posed an additional problem; the women who desired to serve in the combat units were largely incapable of meeting the physical requirements. The leftists were there with the solution, a lesser degree of physical ability with tests adjusted for, wait for it, gender be used where women only be required to perform at approximately three-quarters that of their male counterparts. Other than the different physical requirements, men and women are completely equally capable of performing the necessary requirements for combat arms units.

 

Some Marines were once asked what misgivings they had with women serving in combat units and universally they had two main problem areas. The first was the insensitive treatment, the outright vile treatment they would receive if captured which would place their unit in jeopardy as this would require their being overly protective of any woman or women in their unit even to the point that some said they might consider shooting their female compatriots rather than allow them be captured. These interviews disappeared from records within weeks of their being reported. Their other complaint was they really would prefer that another male Marine be expected to carry them from the field of battle when injured as the women would likely struggle carrying a two-hundred-fifty pound Marine who was a full foot taller than the female soldier. This had been a proven problem in training to the point that the women were only required to carry another woman in such exercises and if no woman was present, then the slightest and shortest male soldier would be their victim to carry.

 

But this demands that all inequalities be ignored because if you ignore differences and compensate for them making that the norm, then differences really no longer exist. Simply pretend that there is no difference and then no difference is noted. That makes all differences simply vanish as they have been deleted from reality. This has been carried over to marriage such that the gender of the people being joined in marriage no longer matter. Marriage can be between a man and a woman, but where is the fun in that. Marriage can also be between a man and a man or a woman and another woman, viva the lack of difference. Now there is another new rule for society, everyone must treat same gender partners in a marriage exactly the same as they would a traditional married couple. There must be no differentiating or else. So, if you are a baker, one of about fifty in a city, and you are known to be a religious person, a very religious person, then there will at some point be a same gender couple who will seek out your bakery demanding that you make their wedding cake. Should you refuse, then you are in for a heap load of trouble. You will be sued and driven out of business rather than simply finding another baker who would accept your business and happily bake your cake. You see, it is a matter of principle that everybody must accept your choice in marriage and those who refuse on religious grounds, especially on religious grounds, must be driven from the public square.

 

Even in the workplace, if there is a person where one member of a same gender couple is employed, then there is a dynamic which at some point is almost guaranteed to erupt with the slightest provocation, even unintentional provocations. The horrible side to this is that no provocation is actually required, just the individual believing there had been a provocation. What is really unique about same gender marriage currently in society is that it is the particular area of greatest sensitivity. Should the member of a same gender marriage feel they have had their special relations insulted and bring charges that they have been slighted over their relations, then the accused is guilty. The accusation in and of itself is sufficient proof of commission of the crime and the accused is basically finished and will forever carry the stigma of being an insensitive boor to be scorned by all. This is further guaranteed by those who will be charged with doing the investigation. The EEOC officer likely has their degree in gender studies or other equally prestigious area of social studies. They are trained to be capable of feeling the slightest tremor or disturbance in the polite requirements of their highly sensitized abilities. Many of them are over-zealous just chomping at the bit to find some inequality to level, some wrong to right, some offended person to defend, some reason to champion a cause and make a difference. Never mind that often that difference has a person who becomes the victim, but these victims deserve being victimized, as they fell on the wrong side of the new social constructs. Wait until you hear of some who choose to be gender free.

 

Things were so very different back at the front end of the new age when equality actually meant accepting one another for the person we were and trying not to be judgmental. This was during that long ago age of flower power and being groovy and dropping in or dropping out which often could mean the same thing. Back then there was a revolution in society where the past was to simply be left in the dust, the dustbin of history and a whole new world was going to be replacing the old where people were judged by their character, ability, and quality of their performance, their work and differences were to be respected. People were to be permitted their differences and if one felt uncomfortable with your lifestyle, then as long as they were polite and treated you with respect, then you were to respect their beliefs and not demand they approve of you just as they were not to expect you to reform to their beliefs. It was all about respecting differences and everyone living their life by their rules and allowing others to do the same. Life has changed and the world is now about forcing everyone to believe the true and enlightened path of leftist dogma. We went from no such thing as a set dogma and everybody was allowed to make their own rules for their life and nobody’s rules were any better, more respectable or more correct than anyone else’s rules and that was that to strict dogma demanding complete compliance dictated by the extreme left. Now you must be in with same gender marriage, open relationships and every last iota of the leftist menagerie of whatever is their latest decision modern society must now embrace. It is difficult to keep up with some of the changes society has taken and the speed of these constant demands which come at us from every corner.

 

Many people, far more than the leftists are willing to accept, are growing tired of their holier than thou preaching about how everyone is supposed to think and what we are to cherish and what is acceptable and what is not. Despite the overwhelming social media offensive which claims the President Trump was placed into the Oval Office by no less than the devil himself, or was a Russian President Putin, and is there a difference as social media says there is no diff, but the people who voted for Trump were not all people who actually thought he was the most wonderful choice possible, but they definitely knew he was not going to be another leftist, and that was all that mattered. There are a number of Republicans who have misjudged the anger running through the American electorate and others who have seen it for what it is and decided to retire and let somebody the people can believe in to hopefully replace them. Now for the interesting thing which deserves its own paragraph.

 

The Democrat Party will survive their plunge into the farthest left swimming pool they could find and then swimming to the left end of the pool. They truly believe in what they are representing, and good for them. They will pay the price for their plunge to extremism and will recover and return to just being the excessively liberal party. The Republican Party is a completely different matter. Should their mainstream old school leadership insist on trying to play Democrat lite, then the party will die, as it should. They have a choice that they need to make, either change their leadership and actually stand for something or become irrelevant. Donald Trump is just a symptom of a very disgruntled portion of American society who is sick and tired with being ignored by both parties. They are going to either be given control of the Republican Party or they will declare a new party and the Republicans will go the way of the Whig Party, the party they replaced when the Whigs refused to take a strong stand on slavery. There is no singular item which will spell the end of the Republican Party but the lack of ability to repeal Obamacare, their inability to address and pass meaningful tax reform, their inability to address illegal immigration, their inability to deliver all the items they had promised if only they were given the White House and both houses of Congress, they did not demand a supermajority, which the people granted them, their inability to put the brakes on John McCain and impress vote control of their party members as the Democrat Party does as simple as for the asking, their inability to be honest with their supporters is what will bring them to an end. There are a great number of people who are very angry and their distress is not going to wane, their determination will not be denied, and their fervor will spread as more people wake to the fact that the United States is in distress and unless things are turned around and changes, basic and desperate changes, are made and made immediately, within the Trump four years, then all will be lost.

 

United States has a Fever

 

United States debt went from five-trillion dollars in 2000 to twenty-trillion dollars by the end of 2017, which is quadrupled. George W. Bush doubled it in his eight years; and, just not to be outdone, Barack Obama redoubled the debt in his eight years. There is a President which should be emulated for his absolute intolerance of the United States being a debtor nation. He did not settle for simply balancing the budget with accounting gimmicks or actually balancing it for a year or two or showing a small surplus which would evaporate all but immediately. This President paid off the entire debt and on January 8, 1835, at a gathering of the so-called important people in Washington, it was announced that President Andrew Jackson had fulfilled his campaign promise and the entire national debt was paid in full. His methods may have been somewhat dubious but his desired aim was admirable. To get the current debt is not something which could be vanquished by any single President and will take the full attention and efforts of an extensive number of administrations but is something the people are going to demand Washington change as their economy starts to be affected as the debt causes financial ruin and threatens to destroy the United States. Have you ever wonder why savings accounts earn almost no interest? The debt is the answer. The interest rates are being kept artificially low so the debt will not destroy the United States. Should the interest rates rise, then the payment on the interest would accordingly rise. Currently the United States has barely managed to keep up with the payments at their current level. Double the interest rate to close to five percent and the interest payments would double. Redouble them to around nine percent, about half of where they were under President Jimmy Carter, and the interest payment would take over almost half or more of the Federal budget at current levels and force the United States to cut funding for programs and halve the military. Should they rise beyond that, well, let us hope that never becomes the new reality. The time has come in the United States to make balanced budgets and paying off principle and not merely the interest of the debt a primary concern. When a political party and politicians start speaking about this, we will know that just possibly the United States may be starting to heal itself because it is currently quite ill and has a disease which causes it to bleed the people’s financial future.
