Yes, it's cliche, but lately it's been harder to escape the fact that the masses are in fact stupid.
I seriously find myself daydreaming that I'm schizophrenic in the hopes that this is all a delusion.
I'm not trying to be mean. I don't like calling people stupid. At least not on my blog. I have no problem calling anyone anything if they are in fact what I am calling them.
For instance, I really hate the word sheeple, I think it's a bad way to get a mind to open up to other possibilities.
But, today, September 8, 2015, I have reached my breaking point.
There are many smart individuals and intelligent groups of people out there. There are experts in a variety of fields. But, for some reason when people come together in great masses to either oppose or support anything they become crash test dummies with anger issues.
The latest constitutional melee is over a county clerk, who was defying a supreme court ruling by denying gay and lesbian couples marriage licenses.
People have now come out in droves to support this woman who denied the licenses to gay couples over her religious beliefs.
I don't know how many times it has to be said, but it needs to be screamed by legislators on the capital steps, despite what they believe, that religion has NO place in government.
The media is covering this story, but they're not drilling in the point that religion cannot be involved in lawful or political decisions.
I don't believe that god should be taken out of the pledge of allegiance. But, scripture cannot dictate that homosexuality is an abomination by law. They have no right to expect the government to not allow gay marriage on their say so.
Well, it seems like moronic behavior spreads like a bad case of crab because it has reached Tennessee...
A Judge in Tennessee has now stopped straight couples from divorcing.
Chancellor Jeffrey M. Atherton says he could not rule on the divorce of a couple in their 60s because “With the U.S. Supreme Court having defined what must be recognized as a marriage, it would appear that Tennessee’s judiciary must now await the decision of the U.S. Supreme Court as to what is not a marriage, or better stated, when a marriage is no longer a marriage.”
WHHHAAAAATTTTT THE F$%#!?
This guy should be kicked out of the bar for such a ridiculous statement.
If he wasn't allowing his religious beliefs to determine his decisions then he would not have pulled this stunt.
A courtroom is not a place for stunts. Chancellor Jeffrey M. Atherton should have his robe and gavel burned and he shouldn't see a courtroom for the rest of his life. He can see a bunch of them on Court T.V.
This is a slippery slope we're on and if our legislators and so-called leaders don't start getting this point across with major media attention we're going to end up like the countries we fight. Which by the way, we fight them for this exact same reason.
The U.S. government is always trying to free people from religious regimes by going to war with them. Now we're humoring these people instead of bringing down the hammer in our own house.
This is not a debate, nor is it a discussion. Religious beliefs have no place in government decision making.
Allow me to apologize for what I am about to say. But, these religious books that believers live their lives by are cruel.
They instill fear by making small minded people believe they will feel the heat of eternal damnation if they don't do as the book says. They do this even if it means breaking the law.
This one idiot clerk has created such a wave of religious outrage that it's now reached Georgia.
A Muslim woman is now using the same excuse to overturn her suspension from her job.
ExpressJet is an American airline based in College Park, Georgia... They suspended the Muslim women for refusing to serve alcohol due to her religious beliefs.
The Muslim flight attendant, Charee Stanley says she was suspended by ExpressJet Airlines, Inc. for refusing to serve alcohol, although it is part of her job description because it goes against her Islamic faith. Therefore, her religious beliefs entitle her to only handle certain aspects of the job.
Usually, the entire crew of any service industry does all the work the job requires.
The amount of resentment a staff will have for an employee that pulls a card to not have to do their job is extraordinary.
The Koran I guess is pretty clear on the subject and I completely understand and accept that.
My one problem is you work for an airline as a flight attendant.
If she worked for Muslim Express then I would agree with her argument. But, she has no case. If she doesn't want to serve alcohol she can work in baggage claims. Better yet get an office job. It's not a huge surprise they serve alcohol on flights. This is nothing new. The only way I can give her a pass on this is if she's from Jupiter because there is no way a person going for a job like that doesn't know that serving alcohol is part of the gig.
Allowing this argument to play out in the media is a huge mistake. Politicians might actually cave to public pressure in fear of losing votes.
Just look at what is happening with Donald Trump. The media has given him so much airtime that now people are starting to take him seriously and have even said they might vote for him.
The man has not answered a single question on how he would be so great at every level of government. Yet people are now starting to jump on Trump's train.
The goddamn Republican Party not only accepted his signature they demanded it. This from the party that was embarrassed to this man anywhere near them just a few short months ago.
This is all madness!
I want to drop one last story, though not political it is ridiculously delusional and pretty shocking.
Semi-forgotten comedian and actor Daman Waynes, often confused with the 26 other Waynes on T.V. was being interviewed on a morning radio show.
He was asked about Cosby's situation and began going on what was a very ignorant and hateful rant.
Here is some text from the interview...
“Tell the truth, if I was him, I would divorce my wife, wink wink, give her all my money, and then I would go do a deposition,” Wayans began. “I’d light one of them three-hour cigars. I’d have me some wine, and maybe a Quaalude, and I would just go off, because I don’t believe he was raping.”
"I believe he was in relationships with all of them and then he's like, you know what? I'm 78. I don't work like that no more. I can’t get it up for any of y’all. Bye, bitches,’ and then they’re like, ‘Oh, really? Rape!’”
“Forty years — listen, how big is his penis that it gives you amnesia for 40 years?”.
“But if you listen to them talk, they go, ‘Well the first time.’ The first time?!”. “Bitch, how many times did it happen? Just listen to what they’re saying.”
“And some of them, really, is unrapeable. I look at them and go, ‘No, he don’t want that. Get outta here!"
“Look, I understand fame. I’ve lived it. Women will throw themselves at you. They just want be in your presence. There’s some that innocently will come up there, but not 40-something women. They’re not that naive.”
I have no words for that last one but thought everyone should know what kind of man Damon Waynes really is.
