You’re just {sinful,racist,sexist,homophobic,oppressive,…}

This is a lot deeper than most will care to read or even consider, but hey, there might be someone out there sick of constantly waking on eggshells to avoid being called {sinful,racist,sexist,homophobic,oppressive,…} who appreciates it therefore I share it.

Of course now days, they just go straight to “white supremacist” or “literally hitler”.

Inclusive, diverse, whatever the hell…

I often get pitched to apply for certain positions and usually I blow them off right away. But, I saw one that intrigued me from a very well know international manufacturer of expensive gadgetry feature a fruit on them as an engineer of stuff I’m really good at and like doing (vague enough?)

But the first strike against it is since it’s a new team, I’d have to go to Oregon rather then remain here in the mountains telecommuting… *bzzt*.

The second and final blow was the “work culture” video started with a “female from another culture wearing a headscarf”.

Capture

Now I’ve gone though a *butt-load* of “inclusive” management stuff and can be compassionate to a variety of situations to a variety of peoples. But (and it’s a big one) one thing I’ve also noticed is what when a company goes too far with the “inclusive” stuff they end up hiring based on factors other than just capabilities and competence.

To me the problems with that are A) I’d get treated like crap for being the “old white dude” and B) I’d end up doing the work from the “diversity hires”. Been there, done that, no thank you ma’am.  Oh sorry, did I just assume gender?

L.E. vs the 2nd Amendment

In the article titled “Law Enforcement vs. the Second Amendment” at Townhall, they featured the following from a “Federal LEO”…

“I’m offended by your misleading ads on gun control rights. We need to pass the assault weapon law restricting the ownership and use. I’m a federal Law Enforcement officer who has been on both side of this contentious issue. I do not want to face criminals who out gun me. Your tactics are doing just that. Everyone killed by an assault rifle in the US should sue you for your political stand. You advocate a very dangerous position that does not serve the interest of public safety. Also, The second amendment does NOT give you the right to bear arms. That is given to US citizens in case law supporting the second amendment. The Second AMENDMENT gives you the right to bear arms in order to form a militia only. Once again you mislead the american public. This country will never repair it’s problems unless we can come together, find common ground. The Brady Bill was just that. Common ground. You need to find it in your heart what is best for this great country, not you own personal self interest.”

What’s best for this great country, not for someone’s personal self interest after saying he’s afraid of facing criminals who out gun him and that the interest of “public safety” (codeword for pigs) isn’t being served?  Well, this is all Bovine Splatter (BS, for those not familiar with agricultural terms), and pure regurgitation of the Party Propaganda.

I get sick of people who say “oh, Law Enforcement will never cooperate with the disarming of the American public.”  More Bovine Splatter.  These people are power drunk.  They are like the regular ol’ coworker that suddenly gets promoted, flips a switch, and then suddenly starts becoming a tool to all those who he once considered himself no better than.  Perceived power derived from nothing, and a simple questioning of this false authority results in punitive actions.

Yes, the porcine pukes will come for the guns of average citizens and are doing it already by villianizing key sections of the population.   If you aren’t aware that it is happening, ask people who live in housing projects, are in motorcycle clubs, or who are being subjected to the recent CA confiscation raids.  It is happening now.

Well armed tyrants

Outgunned my ass!

 

The law

The law, for some, is not a uniform instrument of justice but rather a blunt force trauma instrument to be used to batter opponents into silence. That is how the corrupt work. That is the corrupt have always worked. That is how the corrupt will continue to work.

With these people, the issues are never the issue, the issue is always power; the policies are never the policy, the policy is always control; and the laws are never the law, the law is always domination.  Understand this and you understand the murderous designs and totalitarian goals of the corrupt.

Just another dead rat

Rat

“Redemption? Sure. But in the end, he’s just another dead rat in a garbage pail behind a Chinese restaurant.”

Mr. Fox

Momma never told me…

I was recently delivered some rather sobering news.  I’m still putting on the public display of “oh, I wonder what caused this?”  In reality I have a pretty good idea what caused it and it made me think of all those warnings they gave to us as kids.

You know “don’t do LSD or you’ll think you can fly and jump off a bridge”, or “you can die from a single use of cocaine”.  All those “drugs kill” warnings that we’d all heard so much of back in the day of Nancy Reagan.

The problem was that we didn’t see anyone dying so we knew they were lying.  Just that same weak-ass scare tactic reminiscent of Reefer Madness.  Well, I guess I knew drugs could kill, but that was heroin that created those pale bodies I was ushered out of the house by on multiple occasions, but we all knew that crap was pure poison.  Poison that took my mother several years ago after being and addict since her teens.

But as far as the other stuff, we’d used it all and laughed off those warnings.  All those years and all those adventures and only lost one friend, but who the hell takes several doses of acid and sleeps with a shotgun in their sleeping bad after doing weird ass wicca rituals?

Now what they should have told us was the following:  “Someday you’ll make it past all this shit.  Yeah, you’ll still be scarred from your shitty excuse of a childhood, but you’ll rise above.  You’ll find love and someone you want to grow up with, raise some kids you are proud of, and then have grand-kids.  Then when you look forward to watching your grandchildren growing up you’re going to get knocked on your ass out of the blue.  You won’t be drinking, smoking, or doing anything wrong; you’ll just have your wife rush you to the hospital with this terrified look on her face like she’s watching her life ripped from her chest right in front of you.  Then you’ll lay there a couple days in a haze wondering what the hell has happened and various medical folks will blow smoke up your ass and not give you a straight answer.  Then after a few days of thinking things might be back to normal you’re going to have to go to a small room with a doctor you’re pretty sure is a little light in the loafers with his smug little assistant that you deduce is his gay lover and really in charge of the relationship.  Then that doctor (who is several years your junior) is going to give you some news that is going to change your life (or at least what’s left of it.)  Then you will regret all of this and wish it never happened.”

Now if someone had lad that shit on me in a moment of sobriety, I’d have double-thought that “all you could snort” straight off the brick coke buffet the Mexicans treated me to for being their street level front for coke heads and junkies (a position I inherited when I came home one day and found a note from my mom saying “you’re 18 now, sell what is left in the house, the family has had to leave town”).

But then again, a paid motel room, all the coke you and that piece of ass joined to you at the crotch could snort… yeah, I still wouldn’t have believed them and my dumb ass still would have chose the coke.

I don’t come ’round here (much) no more…

Sorry, in the scope of things and after attitudes have changed this just doesn’t get much trickle-down time.  I leave it up for historical purposes and perhaps may come and produce more content some day.  For now, it’s just sitting here doing nothing.

This also means that since I don’t have the time to do much with it, comments, etc. just sit out in the ether awaiting approval (moderation put on after a bunch of cop club folks thought they could use this as a platform… well, in my world, I get to shut *you* up so “respect my authoritay!”)
