Thing In Itself Identity

NO SELF, IN ITSELF:  There is no particular self, separate and apart from the cosmic field, as a thing in itself.  Not in present manifestation, nor in potential.  There is no potential to sense, see, or smell, apart from  potential for expression of relations that can sponsor that whichi is to be sensed, seen, and smelled.

IMMEASURABLE SOURCE FOR INTUITION OF REALITY BEYOND THE MEASURABLE:  People tend too much simply to assume each human body is an entirely separate body and consciousness, unrelated and unconnected to other apparently separate bodies and perspectives of consciousness.  Yes, something about occupying and adopting the apparently separate perspective that is associated with a body leads one in all empirical measures to confirm such separateness.  However, empiricism is not the end-all-be-all for apprehending and appreciating existentiality.  There seems also to abide an innate yet immeasurable source of intuition of purposefulness.  People of a scientific, empirical bent tend often to want to pretend that all that cannot be empirically modeled and measured must be non-existent.  This denial of a non-measurable yet intuitive source of inspiration, creation, will, and immeasurable yet intuited moral purposefulness (spiritual based oughts) is a fundamental misstep that tends necessarily to lead to unnecessary misery.

NO ARCHIMEDIAN FULCRUM BY WHICH TO "CLOSE" THE COSMOS OR TO REDUCE ALL OF POTENTIALITY TO PRESENT EXPLANATION, CONTROL, PREDICTION, OR PRESCRIPTION:  There is no separate particle, body, or particular perspective of consciousness that abides as a measurable thing-in-itself (or Archimedian fulcrum).  The very idea is an absurd contradiction in terms, for measurement itself requires relationalism and connectivity, i.e., a field of connection.  Such field of encompassment and reconciliation is not static, frozen, or reducible to any present measure.  The idea that empirical science can or should ever prove that individual human identity, empathy, purposefulness, justice, and morality are confined to the perimeters of separate bodies is the absurd idea of desperate madmen.  Yet, many philosophers of psychology, sociology, economics, and politics contrive to seek some model (or unholy grail) whereby to confine all discussion of moral purposefulness --- as if human beings were little more than separately analyzable widgets.  Many seem to have little appreciation concerning what "IT" is that they are pursuing -- other than to assume that IT must be nothing more than some bounded thing that "emerges" solely from and within the present perimeter of each organism's particular body.  These are scientific cowboys, ghost chasing a red eyed herd across endless skies.

Proponents of same sex marriage tend carefully to avoid ramifications of their arguments with regard to polygamy. And that is the point. It is obvious why they do that. When they say cases have been addressed by courts, it's as if they think picked battles in select courts settles some kind of consensus science in law. (They implicate ideas of "science" and "fairness." I don't consider any holy book or manmade book of law the final decider of such issues. The "book" I look to is the logos that is all around. When it comes to determinations of fairness, morality, and science, an appeal to selected judicial pretenders is hardly more convincing than the appeal of a bible thumper to his favorite preacher. It cuts no ice with me. Tell me how your "science" shows that homosexual marriage is good for a representative republic that seeks to limit busybody regulators of people's freedom of expression and enterprise.)

I am talking about same sex marriage, too. Take a marriage contract between man 1 and man 2. They adopt a child. By your arguments, extending to the law of contracts, nothing precludes man 1 from entering into another marriage contract with man 1a and adopting a child, and man 2 from entering into a marriage contract with man 2a. And woman 2b. Etc. Nothing in the logic of your science, arguments, or cases precludes that. SSM proponents are right that they don't need my permission to connive. And I don't need their permission to point out the connivery.

Once you approve a particular kind of relationship as being worthy of special protection, tax incentives, and entitlement to adopt and raise children, then, if fairness and picked science are your only guides, the implication is approval of repeating iterations of such relationships. If partnership law applies to sexual relationships the way it applies to business relationships, with no limiting principle, then nothing precludes poly iterations of either kind of relationship. Polygamy is implicated in your argument, whether you recognize it or not. That is what needs to be pointed out for people to consider --- especially when they otherwise lack the vision, will, or incentive to do so for themselves. Some people readily notice shoes tend to come in pairs. Others are willfully blind to it.

If the right to strange marriage does not exist until a court duly declares it, then how can a court first say it exists in order to declare it?

Due process depends ultimately on a people that is assimilated under some Higher Reconciler to respect it. The people provided for a representational republic, whose Constitution and representatives establish law. It is not due process or law when courts invent new rights in respect of spurious "science."

What we are experiencing is far from due process. It is vote stealing, in-your-face goon intimidation and oligarchic rip off. You are laying a blueprint for plunderers, but you have no vision regarding the forces you are unleashing. The more you undermine and de-define families, the more you invite the forces of sinisterism masquerading behind a pretense of governmental legalism and "due process." You can't de-define families and have rule of law. Rather, you will get rule of oligarchic plunderers wearing masks of legalism and pretending to be looking out for "fairness." Scrotomus Maxipadimus. Are you better off today than you were 25 years ago? Is the nation?

Do you or do you not place the burden on society to evidence scientifically that polygamy is bad before legally proscribing against it?

Fear to answer the question, because of fear the answer would expose that either you're a hypocrite about the role of common sense viz a viz science, or else you have no standards.

The Regime is not advocating for homosexual marriage because it's convinced it's the right thing to do. It's doing this because it gets pleasure in tearing apart the country. Scrotomus goes along because it is overburdened with power lusters who have been turned into deviants. When you have no standards, it's tempting and easy to use "science" to twist and rationalize every standard. So now we have "science" replacing law. If 2 daddies are good, would not polygamy science show that 3 or 4 or 5 would be better? Why not? If not, do you have science to show it? If 1 mommy married to gov is good, would not the gov marrying 2, 3, 4, or 5 mommies altogether be better? Maybe law should incent single mothers to marry one another. Surely, "science" can be found to prove what a boon this would be. Indeed, why not simply decree that the science of Big Gay Bro and Scrotomus Maxipadimus has disproven every piece of common sense and traditional values?

Goon organizer Obama was elected with the help of goon and acorn squads. Now, goon squads help the regime rip apart the foundations of America. Over and over, this happens, and still most Americans think fundamental changes are occuring through the electoral process. Anyone who stands athwart to holler "Liar!" and "Deceiver!" is quickly shunted aside. Scotus has thus been reduced to Scrotomus, as the rule of law morphs into the rule of mobsters and monsters. The more this goes on, the fewer will become the people we need to holler "Stop!" Women forgive Slick's rapes because he is a scamp.

Suppose someone starts a superstition that the best thing to do can be determined by posing the question and then seeing which way a herd of cows moves. Before long, crony agitators who think they would benefit by one path or the other will begin to agitate the cows. As the cows learn that how they are treated depends in the short run on how they move, and that moving as directed by agitators is the easiest course, they will so move. Especially once they have been "educated" to understand the agitators' cow whistles. The mass of cows have no idea of what kind of cow society would best suit them. The few who might are simply swept along with the herd. Any cow who resists is cursed by the agitators and herd, alike.

People are not cows, but crowd and political managers are learning how to teach them to act like bound-for-Abilene cows. The gay mafia now has only to stamp its feet, and all the people-cows scurry along. The accepted "wisdom" becomes self fulfilling conventional wisdom, and rationalizations are brought forward to "prove" it. Goose stepping gays love force feeding this stuff, so that no one is permitted the personal dignity of resisting them. The reason the NFL took an interest in Arizona's affair is cow-stupid. No one is precluding gays from doing nearly everything they want. There is no indication of mass refusal to accomodate gays. Rather, there are entire industries that leap to cater to them. What thinking people want is some vestige of respect for individual freedom of expression and association. So they are not sued for not wishing to make gays their best confidant. So their children are not expelled for not wishing to take part in "Johnny has two daddies" indoctrination. So their nation does not move tax money from supporting our military to supporting gay "marriage." Now, we have the NFL blocking for the gay running game, while Scrotomus moves the ball. I see brain dead people.

The agricultural industry wanted cheap labor. The narcissistic, drug addled class wanted to make dramatic statements to show they were wiser than everyone else. After JFK, MLK, and RFK, kids came and quit believing in anything traditional. California became the basket case that presumed it should be the trendsetter. Families fell to communes. Turmoil and crisis spelled opportunities for cynical profiteers and agitators and faux saviors through legalism. Lack of moral vision and breach of faith in decency paved the way for stuporism and sinisterism to replace spiritualism. The stain spread. The new gurus and profs turned out to be small minds that brought a state low. They learned nothing and forgot nothing, and they are not done with mischief yet. Wealth in resources did not inoculate them from the pride that comes before a fall. Those whom the gods would destroy they first make proud.

There's no oligarchic sponsor for finding that there is no crisis to exploit. Having lost control over theology, oligarchs seek to tighten control over interpretations of science. It would be interesting to see what studies have been funded and refused where the models and findings did not support a presumption of man caused global warming.

We don't have good bright lines to demarcate the proper realm or technique of science. Much of soft science is more like self fulfilling self selective mass hysteria. Deutsch describes aspects of the problem in his "The Beginning of Infinity." We look for explanations that have practical value. However, to decide what should have practical value is in part a subjective process of assimilation. The more diverse and less assimilated we become, the less we agree on what should be the practical values towards which our sciences aspire. Too many soft scientists take on way too much hubris. Thus we get mad hatter scientists denouncing march hare scientists about what is "objective material truth in itself." Like Stalin, many of these scientists seem to become emotionally invested in playing for keeps by using no end of rationalizations. They learn how to manipulate math and lose humility, thus presuming they have better insight into that of which our practical values should consist.

Obama is a convenient rationalizing puppet for depraved robber oligarchs who have targeted America for cannibalizaton and the world for a worldwide system of fiefdoms. Different fiefdoms will farm different kinds of people. Oligarchy al Islam will farm women. Oligarchy al Drug Lords will farm hedonists. Oligarchy al Materialism will farm Whitey. And the youth will be indoctrinated to like it. When hell on earth is as good as it gets, a good slave is a "happy" slave.

Re: "once you unmoor yourself from objective moral reality, there is no limit to how immoral you can become"

To me, there abides an objective Source for reconciling subjective experiences of moral reality. Such an idea helps distinguish between fundamentally different interpretations of collectivism. In the first, a Source invites and inspires each individual perspective towards an assimilating, renormalizing, reconciling experience of civilizing companionship. In the second, there is no such a participating, reconciling Source or Guide. Only dumb matter, for the qualitative experience of which each person is his sole and only guide. Each person becomes his own god, so that all others become expendable things, depending not on whether they please an Idea of a Reconcilier, but on whether they please such mortal powers and persons as then and there happen to rule. In the first form of collectivism (conservation of liberty), there tends to be voluntary collectivizaton towards a fulfilling civilization. In the second, there is farmed coercion. Robbers organize gangs around producers to cannibalize. Without producers as an organizing attractant, the robbers would fall upon one another. Which is what they do when they use up their farmed producers.

I doubt there abides an objective good that is separate and apart from a Reconciling Spirit. Whatever the objective good that abides, I suspect inanimate good does not exist in itself, but only in contemporaneous respect of a Reconciler. Does the Reconciler "learn," or experience a quality of being "surprised by joy?" I don't know, but I see no reason why not. I don't believe objective truth about matter-in-itself exists, but I do tend to believe that an objective, Reconciler-Guide of unfolding moral purposefulness abides. Common belief in such a Source can help people assimilate decent purposefulness. Without such belief, every person self-gods himself, so that everyone soon learns not to trust any other. Robbers who know no thinking person will ever mistake them for anything other than a robber do not rely on moral suasion. They rely on fear, intimidation, force, and crass bribery, sprinkled with convenient rationalization and centered around a target (such as Jews, Blacks, or Whiteys). Without inventing new targets for abuse, they cannot sustain themselves. For example, Islam targets half its population, women, for abuse ... in perpetuity. A burka or a boot stomped on faces ... forever. In effect, the second form of collectivism constitutes attempts by desperate and depraved beings to make a hell to rule over.

Sometimes, proponents for the second kind of collectivism, like Obama, try to make a kinder and gentler hell, whereby the masses who are farmed are so deceived or conditioned as to like it. That is, to confuse abuse with love. Stock-home Sin-drome World. This, however, requires the neutering of every decent thinker. If powers that be cannot neuter, then they move on to extermination.

The only thing that binds most blacks, hispanics, muslims, dino women, losers, femimen, addicts, illegals, homosexuals, and dino jews is opposition to, and taking from, the productive white guy. Once the white guys no longer hold majority power, and the economy fails, then the balkanization and blood letting will burst the dam and spill over the country. This is because each grievance group will find its own Sharpton once the Sharptons-in-waiting no longer have Whitey as a unifying foil. The objective of each balkanizing agitator will be godless, personal aggrandizement. It was the producing Americans who assimilated a nation. The diversity-mongers will blow it into a narcissistic, selfie, freak out show. Once all atheistic materialists believe everyone else is just another atheistic materialist, then the ties that bind will unravel. Instead of be all you can be, it will be take all you can take. Years hence, historians will wonder what was the cause of the fall of the American Ideal of human freedom and dignity. I suspect it may be self-defeating loss of assimilative good faith. That was the beginning of the decline of the family and its replacement by big gov, owned and operated by crony, homoerotic rulers.

Naw. You put too much faith in those who have broken faith with the American people. The common feature of the rinodino syndicate is that its cronies worship themselves. They are self-godded. Being their own gods, they deem it ok to break faith with their lessers. Being advocates for self-godism, they have no hesitation against using deceit. Or fundamentally altering foundations for decent civilization. To them, morality and keeping faith with other Americans is a joke. They ride the same horse, and its name is Deceit. Decent Americans want representation from people who serve a decent, common ideal -- not just a quick buck. Unless you believe Republicans cannot bring themselves to nominate a Conservative, you don't need to "slit your throat." Just help draft Cruz-Palin. Don't tell Conservatives they would be better off with someone like Charlie Crist, Chris Christie, or Jeb Bush. Enough of selfies for a godless self-godded, country-less disloyal, corporate cronydom that seeks to erase national borders and make serfs compete worldwide to sell their labor for the cheapest wage to a new ruling oligarchy.

I agree one size does not fit all. That was my point. Local Republicans tend to be more patriotic. As do local Chambers of Commerce. The corruption is attracted mainly to D.C. At the D.C. level, we are not a two party system. We are a one crony syndicate of competing territories. NO party on the national level represents the American Ideal. To get representation will require (1) a miracle, (2) republicans to nominate a conservative, or (3) a party that represents Americans.

Who is targeted by diversity "educators?" Who is taught to celebrate, and who is taught to be tolerant? The whole point for celebrating salad bowl diversity is to teach everyone except white males not to be "traitors to their race, gender, or culture." The system as now established has burned that message into every institution. It must be that our would be rulers have determined this is the best path towards a new empire of fiefdoms.

I would like to see the Republicans explain why Americans should trust them? Why would electing a stupid, lying, establishment, elitist Republican on kneepads for the oligarchy be better than electing an honest, Collectivizing, Equalizing, Enserfer on kneepads for the oligarchy? On the local level, Republicans and the Chamber of Commerce compare more favorably. On the national level, not so much. If the national Republicans are not sold out traitors to The American Ideal, they will help promote a Conserver of Liberty. If not, then they are sold out. Which they have already telegraphed, and the message was received.

No one is prohibiting poor wittle gays from doing whatever the hell they want. But they are not satisfied. No, they want society to fund it! They want parents to sit on their hands while gay teachers explicate how great it is to have two daddy families.

The "best" experts? Lol. "Best," as in most down with de-defining the family and sucking in Big Bro.

Re: " not a single shred of harm caused to anyone by same sex marriage"

Nope. No harm to individuals whose sensibilities are raped by the officiousness of litigious gays. No harm to the republic by de-defining the family. The fabric of our society does not have a high enough divorce rate. We don't have high enough funding of single parent households, to incent irresponsible mothers to have children. We don't have enough of two daddies wanting to adopt children to get gov payments and teach them to advocate. Nope. No harm at all. Indeed, it must be hard to see any harm when you see the gov-system replacing the family as a good thing. When all of society is harmed, it's hard to see any disproportionate harm to any individual -- especially when your vision is clouded by your pleasure glands.

Litigious gays remind me of the student guards in the 1971 Stanford study, where roles were assigned to student guards and student prisoners. The prof who sponsored the study was called as a witness regarding the Abu Ghraib affair. What was learned was how situational role responses within a system can grease a slide to moral depravity. (Is anyone deeper into anticipatory, depraved, and imaginative role playing than gays?) The Stanford student guards took it upon themselves to require the prisoners to perform a camel hump routine. Sort of like the way militant gays want to force bakers who want to stay in business to perform a gay approval routine. Or how kids are indoctrinated by tax paid teachers to approve of two daddy families. Or how parents are counseled not to teach their children to be less than approving -- if they do not want their children to be suspended. So storm trooping, goose stepping, gay parading cronies, fascists, and loons have taken over the system, which they fund by taking tax revenues from producers. Parade time for gay teddies. Now, they want to argue that they must be morally right, since they operate the system and the levers of effective gov power, i.e., the bureaucracy and regulators. They suppose that "might makes them right" and "Obama has his pen." Thus they suppose the courts have no choice but to follow, and thus the voters are divided and ridiculed and told they are "on the wrong side of history." Forget the 12th Imam. Fear the 5th Prog Scrotumus. In reality, crony oligarchs are simply defiling society in order to reduce the multitudes to serfdom. Every thinking person needs to get mad as hell at these system abusing punks and pukes who lack the intellect and decency to see how the system they are building is collapsing decency. In effect, they are exiling any student who would have stood up to the situational role playing during the Stanford experiment.

If there were a problem, the most direct solution would be to incent a declining population. However, that would be at odds with open borders, cheap labor, serf-welfare, and free-faux-healthcare. Thus, the lie is evident. What the charlatans want is oligarchic rule and empire, not responsible Gaia stewardship. Insofar as they do want a smaller population, they are relying on evil means, i..e., depraved sex, mass abortion, partial birth abortion, Cloward-Piven, etc. Why? Because for many Progs, material power is all and transcendent morality is non-existent. In other words, our biggest problem most certainly is a moral deficiency. Why? Because Gaia Paganism and Materialism cannot support a mature or effective philosophy of morality. Indeed, it can be entertaining and near hilarious to sit back and watch as Mad Hatter Materialist Progs debate March Hare Alternative Morality Progs.

Connivers want the masses to grant wholesale power to elites to marshal fights against all evils. Thus, they seek first to focus all evils into a single idea, such as a Dragon, or Warmism. We had Fascism. Then a variant, Communism. Now a mutant, Warmism. All such isms are paraded and celebrated in order to consolidate power in knightly dragon slayers. However, to administer responsibility, it is necessary to pinpoint delegations. To just make the gov wholesale responsible for every concern is effectively to annihilate responsibility, even as total power is given to elitists.

No problem that is delegated to gov is ever resolved. Thus, the only kinds of problems that should be delegated to gov are those that are irresolvable. Such as the perpetual problem of national defense. Other problems, such as pertain to poverty, health, education, and welfare, ought not be delegated to gov because such delegation ensures such problems will never be resolved. When a private enterprise or charity pours resources or money into a problem, it usually has a vested interest in success. A church wants to do good, save souls, reclaim citizens into social responsibility. A gov regime just wants voters. And it wants to keep them --- not rehabilitate them or put them on a path to self sufficiency.

Moreover, the "gov contract" with reliable voters is that gov will pay them, and in return they will not have to work. They are entitled. Thus, they resent any implication that they should get off welfare and find work. When a church is perverted to ask its parishoners to vote to put gov into the charity business, it is doing evil. It is turning itself away from effective charity and making itself into a mouthpiece for gov charlatans and faux charity. Moreover, it is turning its parishoners into dependent, indolent, undignified, talentless, un-American beggars. That is not God's work. Warmism is the new dragon by which knightly elitists romance and seduce gullible masses.

At the time of the Declaration of Independence, Americans believed in an unalienable right, not dependent on law, to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. At the time the First Amendment was passed, Americans thought it important expressly to tell the sovereign power it was not to interfere with fundamental rights of free speech, free press, and freedom of association. Since then, people who are not competent to make their way without the backing of a gang have presumed it their business to tell other people how they must live their lives, instruct their children, and pay the tax tithe to support the incompetent, indolent and depraved. That is, the entitlement of the incompetent, indolent, and depraved to be made secure and supported is deemed the positive right, superior over the negative right of ohers to be left alone. This idea of "positive rights" is used to make gov gangsters enforcers, to force producing persons to be servants of a gangster class of voting incompetents, indolents, and depraved. Often, this gangster class rationalizes the "justness" of its position by asserting that the producing class would bully, were its negative rights to speech, press, and association not "reasonably constrained." Whenever possible, a child, person of color, sexual deviant, addict, or carefree hedonist who meets with a bad end is held up as a martyr to the cause of further taxing the producing class to pay for welfare and for subjecting it to politically correct "reasonable constraints" upon its rights of free expression and enterprise. Thus, under guise of "good gov," the most incompetent, indolent, and depraved have used the sovereign power to claim for themselves something like a positive right of the first night (jus primae noctis, or droit du seigneur (the lord's right), In effect, the First Amendment has been bottomed up to serve the positive right of the gangster class to pillage. Of course, during the melee and crisis, the real beneficiaries are of the crony cynical conniving cannibal class of droit du seigneur oligarchs.

Unless the people can be led to understand that the key to big gov despotism has been the moral destruction of the family, the Republicans will continue to have already lost. That message should perhaps be light on the national level, but it should be trumpeted at all levels below. If it does not take hold, then there is nothing that can be salvaged for this millenium. Once the family is rotted, despotism rushes in, and decent civilization falls for a millenium. We need some miracles. We need some people to come down from the mountain and crash the frenzied dancing round the golden calf. Merely to watch and say, well, trying to stop it is a loser, is already to have lost.

How many ghetto kids "love" their families and homies, in terms of wanting to see them become self sufficient? How many instead unite with fellow gangsters, as entitlement minded takers and fellow predators? Obama "loves" uniting with takers to take down easy prey. Obama has no appreciation or comprehension for the western ideal. Much less does he have "love" for the capacity of western civ to produce a decent society that would facilitate human freedom and dignity. In terms of loyalty, he is a country-less, opportunistic thug. If he has a god, it is merely a projection of his evil, deceptive, lying, sociopathic desires. The very idea of suggesting that Obama has "love" for America is like a taste of sewage water. If Obama believes anything, it is this: those who can be deceived and who are deceived "deserve" to be deceived. For Obama, the blood on his oceans of deception will forever unfold before him. That is what he meant when he said the nation would heel. Whitey is the prey. Obama's homie-hounds are the deserving. The nation is his cup bearer.

As more people are conditioned to what to think, fewer learn to think for themselves. Only rarely will a thinking person find a book or guru with which he believes, completely. To a thinking person, the logos of the cosmos that is all penetrating is more persuasive than any interpretation by any little man. A thinking person may tend to be more aware of the ways in which his models are dissonant. However, most people live lives of continuous cognitive dissonance and shallow rationalization. Some do so because of lack of time, and others because of lack of capacity or inclination. Others do so because they sense the fashion and direction of the profit herd. All these people tend either to farm others or to be farmed by others. These farmed and farmers are deeply invested in preserving the farm system. That is a spiritually dead, crony-gov-oligarch system. They would rather go "forward" with this farm system. The "fundamental change" Obama has made is only to extend the crony-gov-farm system. An electorate that has been nudged and conditioned to a common state of cognitive dissonance can be nudged by a crony-gov oligarchy to change collective opinions as quick as whiplash. Thus, "We have always been at war with Eastasia." And communism has just not yet been done right. Sarc.

House of Cards is a spiritual thermometer. It's important to check that temperature -- even though what it says about where the country is spiritually is eye popping. More and more, people are being cooked beyond their capacity to apprehend it. So, more and more, they ignore it. Moreover, they don't want any "bullies" saying this is all wrong. Wrong is right, right is wrong, and Obama's approval rating is rising. Bye Bye Miss American Pie. In retrospect, what did Nixon do wrong? Well, he didn't pander enough about all the reparations he was going to make, while snickering among his crony contributors. Obama and Chicago Community Bosses have come a long way, the little demons. Meanwhile, the prof class teaches how even more Big Gov is the only way "forward." Clue: No one but the devil will look out for you so long as you fancy that you are entitled to be looked out for.

Drudge has Obama's popular approval back up to 46%. Something doesn't add up. Compare Podhoertz' take on the Lego movie: Message received. Like Winston Smith, who loves Big Brother at the end of 1984, we love Lego. Only, for George Orwell, that was the ultimate horror; in The Lego Movie, that’s the ultimate point. The true subversion of The Lego Movie is its subversion of mindless anticapitalist showbiz liberals.

Compare House of Cards. By making this series, what is the crony class up to (the class that owns the media and that designs the message for mass consumption)? Is this the message(?): Everyone is corrupt. We own you. We own your politicians. All of them. Humanity is irredeemable. God is dead. Resistance is futile. The cronydom seems cynically to be drawing us like flies to learn how powerless we are in the face of monstrous evil. Therefore, be mesmerized. And oh, btw, take some tokes while you watch the yokes.

I liked Breaking Bad, because it offered hope of redemption. I have not seen House of Cards through to any finale.

It would be nonsense to fail to see that polygamy is common among millions of people, including millions of women, many of whom are conditioned not to object. If they are victims, they would say they have a right to choose to be victims. They would not appreciate your deeming to rule against them. However, I am not here to defend polygamy. I am here to point out how, under the arguments of the SSM agenda, polygamy follows naturally from SSM choices concerning their "science of fairness" for the children. Your argument is more of an incoherent stance than an argument. If man 1 can separately marry man 2, WHY could he not also be entitled to enter into a separate contract to marry man 3? And, WHY should man 3 feel abused, so long as he is also free separately to marry man 4? Why should man x, an American citizen, not be able to marry men infinity from Guatamala?

Nothing else is so important in their lives. Not children. Not country. Not God. It's all they've got, and the most important thing to them is to make sure everyone else is made to like it. In school, parades, news, litigation, politics, entertainment. Soon, we will have a Gay Week celebration and Gay History Studies degrees. Maybe a National Gay Rights Act. This will not be stopped by ignoring or humoring it. It's probably a symptom of things even more fundamentally out of whack. They won't be fixed by ignoring them, either.

First they said they should not be criminalized. Ok. Then they said people should learn to be less bullying and more tolerant. Ok. Then they said they should be allowed to be teachers and scoutmasters. Ok. Now they want to call themselves married for tax purposes. And military allotment purposes. And immigration purposes. And privilege against spousal testimony purposes. And they want to be able to enter into joint adoptions. And they want to require grade school students to be instructed about the normality of two daddies. And to suggest that high school kids experiment. And they want to get everyone who does not approve of gay marriage fired, if they can. Meanwhile, the polyamory people, child bride people, and harem people are taking notes. All these wannas are sought to be imposed by force of law and tax. They are invitations for Big Bro controlled Big Gov to invade areas of human interaction that used to be entrusted to the dignity of families. Gov does not stop them from their bedroom activities. But now they want gov to allow their elites to force "positive rights." And they don't want to leave it up to legislators. They want by "science of law" to use court elitists to impose it. This is elitist intrusiveness that goes too far.

While American industrialists and bankers were trading with the Nazis, it took Pearl Harbor to wake Americans up. For the post modern NWO, 911 was apparently not enough to wake us up. Mexicans protesting under the Mexican flag was not enough. KSA remaining untried is not enough. The zero tolerance suspension of kids by idiot schools is not enough. The gov financed gay agenda for grooming kids is not enough. Russia crapping on the Monroe Doctrine is not enough. A racist department, just for minorities, is not enough. Making Muslim outreach a mission for Nasa is not enough. Leaving Afghanistan without an adequate status agreement is not enough. The Benghazi farce orchestrated by Hillary, Obama, Rice and Crowley is not enough. The continued stonewalling of Congressional investigations by an impeachment-immune regime is not enough. Lois Lerner taking the Fifth, after having by her statement waived it, is not enough. Scotus having been reduced to Scurrious and Scrotumus. The intimidation of Tea Party Americans by various alphabet arms of the regime. And on and on ... the lying and malignant manipulation goes.

Hillary's prints are all over these insults to public decency, yet a majority of gender-firsters seems to demand that she be our new Queen. Hyphenated-Americans have been conditioned to be more loyal to every perverted kind of minority and failed culture than to the American Ideal. Departments are funded by taxes to help parasite cultures drill deeper into American producers. Congress continues to cower from bucking oligarchic crisis managers and hedgers, who appear to be homoerotically bent on dividing and mastering Americans. The post modern citizenry has been firmly conditioned to prefer the security of being managed by a lying oligarchy over the personal responsibility that goes with individual liberty. The new god myth is gov. It is a myth because it is not gov rule under laws. It is pretense of law under pretense of gov that is ruled by nothing more than the ripping off that is under way by bands of amoral, oligarchic hyenas.

I cannot imagine what sort of crisis it would take to wake up and reunite Americans. At least, not one that the nation could survive. At this point, it appears the only difference it will make will be to those wolverines who take to the mountains. For everyone else, decent human freedom and dignity will at best be a delusion. Such material rewards as remain subject to redistribution under the syndicate system will be mostly distributed based on the merit of mafias. Instead of New Athens, we will have Triumphant Chicago. Thanks be to Progs, all crap be upon them.
