I Am So Right
For my inaugural post here at Frogspot’s home on the web, I was contemplating a serious, in-depth piece on (what else?) the “nuclear option”. While doing some research on the subject however, I came to the unsettling realization that I am way over the line. To make matters worse, I am on the right side of that line, which pretty much negates any First Amendment rights I might have otherwise had. Since I am already wrong, I may as well stay that way, and what better way to introduce myself to you, the gentle reader of this blog, than a good old-fashioned rant.
You see, I am way out of touch with the mainstream of America, or so believes Senator Harry Reid (oh, you can bet we are going to talk more about him), who speaks for a minority of Americans. By virtue of my support for some radical, off-the-reservation judicial nominees, I lack, "…a commitment to the fundamental rights and liberties we hold so dear."However, just for clarification, let us explore what some of those fundamental rights and liberties might be:
Abortion – there, I said it. Not “women’s right to chose”, not “reproductive health”, but abortion, the killing of an unborn child; which, incidentally, in the case of Scott Peterson may get him killed twice. How about we take a vote, see what people really think about it. My guess is that since we cannot even call it for what it is, or talk about it in polite conversation, without someone calling us the antichrist, it cannot be very popular.
I am not advocating mean spiritedness to people who have undergone these procedures; on the contrary, I believe they have already suffered enough. Incidentally, I wander how many of the most rabid supporters of abortion have actually had one.
“Virtual” child pornography – I know I am way out of the box on this one. With the rash of child abductions in this country, and the incredible proliferation of real child pornography, I am certain that, most “mainstream” Americans would think it was just fine that their neighbors were exercising their God given (isn’t that where we get them from – as per the Constitution) freedom of expression by purveying pictures of innocent children engaged in sexually explicit acts, provided of course that the acts themselves are computer simulations; perhaps with the disclaimer that any resemblance to any real children is purely coincidental.
Gay marriage – just look at all the states that have put it to the people.
There is more, but you get the picture; the only way the left can get what they want is to find jurists who will invent “…fundamental rights and liberties…” out of thin air and then claim they have been in the constitution all along - dumb frogmen like me have been to stupid to see them there (that is assuming we can even read).
How about John Bolton and the UN - The best the UN had to offer is the same person who, more than anyone else, was responsible for the peacekeepers sitting idly by while 800,000 men, women and children were murdered. Since being promoted to the office of Head Honcho, Kofi Annan has, at best, been ineffective. At worst, he has conspired to assist terrorist nations for personal profit and obstructed the US from pursuing its GWOT. Now to me, John Bolton seems like a logical choice to go in and fire some folks up; after all, we are bankrolling the organization, we ought to have some say.
But you see, he is too radical, way out of the mainstream. If the Democrats want to see radical, how about we round up the whole lot of UN “diplomats” and send them down to Gitmo, where they can be claimed after their respective countries pay their parking fines.
There is much more to discuss, but I already know that Froggy is going to chastise me for going over my allotted number of words. But you know, I feel better; what do you expect from a guy who is ideologically in league with the antichrist himself, James Dobson?
