The Mean Little ColumnShit Fucking Anal
By The Mean Little Man
Back in the 80s when your
pointy-haired liege was decrying the hawkish stylings of Reagan and the
xenophobic America firsters, all the while having to continually listen to
baby-boomers circle-jerk nostalgia of war protests and granola toe-jam
music, I used to make the joke of rebellion. The boomers went flower-child
feminized free-love liberalism in response to the oppressive conservative
culture they were born to. But what would their children rebel against? I used
to joke that I saw a generation of Jesus-loving right-wingers looking to
reclaim America from the damage their drugged up amoral parents wrought upon
the land. A shift to conservatism.
I hate it when I get it right. Its no surprise being that
Im both smart and pretty, but cmon! This is fucking ridiculous. But
the right wing took strong notes from the methods of activism, and drilled it
down to the populace from the ground up.
It was highly inevitable though. How many of the people in
this country really could be described as embracing liberalism in the
60s? Not every young person was a hippy. Not everyone decried against the
war. But there were legitimate needs to change the laws that allowed for
bigotry and sexual and racial enslavement. Our culture was in need of a kick in
the ass, and if 1/3 of its populace rejecting outdated mores norms and precepts
wasnt enough, then the extremisms had to prevail, if at least for a time.
But I digress.
People vote with their hearts. More to say, their emotions.
What are the most basic emotions, but the need to feel secure, feel belonging?
So we vote on someone who makes us feel more secure, feel we belong.
I cant stand President Snorty. I swore we were in for
an American Reich when he took office. But between the near-fascist
divisiveness throughout America, the Gestapo-esque domestic legislation that
now exists and the support of pre-emptive aggression globally, I see the Twin
Towers as an American Reichstag.
Lets look closer. We are divided. Right wing people, or
Red-staters, decry liberal agenda and demand rights for localized changes to
everything from education, to law. Removal of Evolution from text books?
Inclusion of a divine plan? The continual fight of the Christian right to
legislate what they call morality, but what would manifest as a populist
strong-arming of America to a Christian agenda? In a classroom of diversity it
gets scary to think of mandated silent time or prayer. The mere
concept of being told you dont have to pray to my god, but you do
have to shut your mouth gives me the shakes so bad I was mistaken for
Knick Nolte on step 12. Schools have never told students they cant pray.
But to do so on their own time.
Gay marriage, abortion, and other rallying cries spring from
a xenophobic mouth of white middle-America. God help it if you are different.
You simply arent saved. You dont love Jesus enough. Translation?
Different means you have chosen to be less worthy of Gods love. And hell,
if youre less worthy of Gods love, why should you be worthy of your
neighbors? Or your judges?
Government exists to provide an environment of liberty
within which people are free to exercise self-determination to the best of
their abilities. We are all born equal and should have the freedom to
distinguish ourselves as unequal, and individuals, based on nothing more than
what we do with our life. What is an environment of liberty? It is an
environment devoid of the pressure upon the individual to comply to non-shared
ideas, mores, or acts through direct or implied threats both internally and
externally to the basic needs.
To put it simply liberty = NO BULLIES.
It is why murder and theft are illegal, but being different
is not. Murder and theft are prime means governments and mobs use to get people
who disagree to capitulate. Being different may make people uneasy, but
thats usually because people are told that people who are different want
to rape, rob, and kill you.
How do you legislate a morality? What is the distinction
between a social imperative and a moral one? A social imperative is something
clean-cut that a society must institute in order for liberty to be afforded.
Murder is illegal because a society that allows it crumbles to the rule of
brute force. Theft is illegal because a society that permits it dissolves the
sanctity of personal accomplishment and sanctity of home.
But how is a moral different? A moral is a personal belief
that is enriching spiritually and socially to an individual or a group.
Whats the litmus test? If the inclusion or absence of a mandate of this
behavior neither improves nor degrades a societys ability to provide
liberty, it is a moral.
One thing the right and the left have never been able to get
through their slogan-spewing heads is you cannot legislate people away from
being an asshole. And there are plenty of them. You cannot mandate people to
not offend you. Theres always gonna be someone out there who makes your
colon clench. The tighter wound you are, the higher the likelihood of it. But
you really have only three options when someone doesnt conform with what
you think is right and wrong in manners and behavior outside of what is
legislated by law.
1) Become self-abusive and drink yourself stupid and become
a masochistic idiot. Remember to plug the toaster in before bathing with
2) Become an abusive, cruel, intolerant person and decry the
lives and existence of others. Be sure to dross-reference the word hypocrite.
Dont forget to utilize the childrens protection as your
psycho-smoke-screen to cover up that you are a sour human bereft of an ability
to save yourself, let alone the world. (Tell you what. If youre so moral
Im sure youll put feeding every human on the planet as a pretty
Jesus-happy thing to do. You accomplish that and Ill be happy to bat for
your team. Nothing sadder than watching a sour twat step over a hungry kid on
her way to shoot an abortion doctor. GET SOME FUCKING PRIORITIES!)
3) Get over it. Chill out, and live by quiet example.
Dont lie cheat or steal, and abide by no one that does. And the rest of
the time, have a lot of laughs.
This is why the Founding Fathers separated church from state
and stayed as far away from legislating morality as possible. Because they knew
that for the most part individual morality could only be enforced at the
expense of liberty. Now if someone has a morality where its ok to steal,
rape, and kill, then yes, hopefully the laws protect us from this sad prick.
But this guy or chick simply has to be in the minority.
Now many would say, arent we legislating morality by
making theft and murder illegal? Cmon. Thats a bullshit argument.
Murder, as seen in the courts, is the act of one citizen depriving another
citizen of their life. It is a tool of stamping liberty. The mere threat of
murder will get most people to do just about anything. But if these red-staters
were really so fucking moral theyd be forgiving black men in Texas,
taking them into their homes and doing as Jesus did: teaching them to fish,
turning the other cheek and sparing the rod.
Nah. Red-states, with Texas out in front like a red-neck
Nascar star, fries em at weekly clip. So dont talk to me about
forgiveness and Christian values. You actually mean white suburban values where
your children are perfect little angels that dont give you an instance of
worry and where anyone who might give them a dissenting thought, for good or
ill, is shunned out of the picture through force, community pressure,
legislation or down-right bigotry.
But its scary when someone with God on their side decides
Gods will is to wreak havoc and fear on anyone who doesnt agree
So what do you have when you have a candidate aligned with
an ideal, that ideal being Christian morality and compassionate conservatism (I
think this means quiet and painless lethal injection rather than messy
lynchings)? Someone who aligns themselves as Americas compass?
To disagree is not to dissent with a person, but to cast
invalidity on an idea at the base of many peoples lives. Talk about
making people feel theyre under siege. To be for Bush is to be one with
Bush. To have Bush dissented is to have you invalidated.
What fodder for the political machine! This administration
has no problems playing on peoples fears. The reality doesnt matter
so long as you can unite one group by its fear of another. According to them,
The liberals want to make it legal for a brown person to come from
another country, take your job, rape your wife and poke you with a stick, but
only after taking away your guns and your God who would protect you.
Gotta laugh that Bush was elected for the feeling that he
would control the flood of foreigners coming here to take our jobs. He did. By
sending the jobs to them!
Thats just the ideological divide. These legislatives
focus primarily at the poor. Actually they bend the poor over like George
Michael at Mardi Gras. But they play the God card with the white poor so their
sense of belonging with the President is never in jeopardy. But what about
Ok, Ive made a lot of jokes in exaggeration. This is
an exaggeration, but not done jokingly. We are in a current state where a coup
could easily happen. And without us knowing. The precepts of it all?
1) The Ministry of Homeland Security. A government agency
whos sole purpose is to protect us from terrorism, primarily through the
use of the Patriot Act, which allows the government to conduct sweeping
monitoring and espionage of those they think might be thinking about committing
a terrorist act.
2) The ability for the government to accuse someone of being
a terrorist, lock them up and deny them due process, charge them with a crime
for extended periods of time, while at the same time interrogating them.
3) Creating sweeping changes that push to allow the CIA to
operate within the boundaries of the United States, thus giving the President
his own private secret police.
Nixon was forced to resign from office for doing his own
flavors of all the above. Now the government can spy on its own citizens and
lock them up for what they have ability to do, regardless of their intentions
to do so, for simply possessing information that could empower them to cause a
destructive act regardless of whether or not they do anything. Or for espousing
ideas that could be construed as those of a terrorist.
In a nutshell? They can lock you away without contact and
interrogate you for suspicion of interest in a future act.
And Im worried that all the above exist at a time
where the poorly managed military has cannibalized its national guard brigades
throughout the country, so that there are less than 15% that have any level of
integrity to stand guard.
The nightmare scenario? The election goes shitty. Perhaps in
conjunction of a terrorist incident. The new national espionage powers
immediately round up the usual suspects being those that would oppose a
bullshit outcome in the presidential election. No states have the ability to
back up their dissent of a stolen election due to their decimated national
guard platoons. And Snorty McFuckup is President again. Who would stand up to
him at that point when the people were powerless against the government or
their neighbors to speak out?
t may sound crazy, but were in an era as constrictive
as McCarthyism. Have you seen any movies out lately by anyone who speaks
against Bush whose name isnt Moore? Seen the Dixie Chicks around
Just as with McCarthyism, those that run against the herd
wind up having their livelihood taken from them. If your livelihood is the
mainstream you better goose-step in unison. Otherwise you better be fortunate
to enjoy non-mainstream support like Moore. Or, you best be satisfied like me
to dissent economically. But Im still at risk. Someone attacks me through
the press because of the content of this site and its taken down
immediately. Im gagged because I dont happen to own a news network
and Im derided as anti-patriotic, obscene and down right smelly. Like
Id keep my day job.
But thats the problem. And how does the government
exact power over a liberal media? By appointing the head of the FCC
to regulate free speech. And the rule is you no longer have to say something
obscene to have said something obscene. If someone out there feels that medical
terms, or the idea behind what on the surface is innocent is actually
offensive, then it is obscene. It is obscene if someone out there feels it is
obscene, not it the words or intent are obscene.
To that I say Shit Fucking Anal Monkeys!
By the way. Do guys in the CIA wear black suits and
sunglasses with ear-piece thingies? Some of them just pulled up in a van.
