Gay Rights: The Simplest Problem Of Our Era



   Let me say that I resent speaking about gay rights at any moment in time unless in the presence of those who oppose them, because it seems to me that this is the most basic problem of our era. We have what we can perceive to be much more complicated problems such as whether or not to intervene overseas (see Syria & Libya for example), how to handle our economy, etc. but gay rights hold no such complications. It amazes me the level of hypocrisy that we, as the United States of America can stoop to. Does the pledge not end "with liberty & justice for all"? I was unaware that we were supposed to tack "except gays" onto the end of that. A common saying is that if you don't like gay marriage, don't get gay married! I'm not saying people have to agree with or even understand gay marriage (though one might not see what's to be misunderstood). I'm saying why actively fight against people who are doing nothing to harm you nor society? They're merely asking for the equality that America so fervently claims to provide.

Child Suicide Bombers - Saved By Allah?

 

  A(nother) story has emerged on the methods that are used to con little children into becoming suicide bombers and no surprise, it's religious. Another big surprise: the children are unaware that they're about to commit suicide. According to the article, the children are told that the bombs will only kill Americans and that Allah will come and separate them from the explosion, safely returning them to the men who strapped the bombs onto their chest. In case you're unaware, Allah is the god of Islam.

Book Review: Brave New World



  I'm usually not one for fictional books because they always seem so elementary to me, especially when juxtaposed with the plethora of riveting nonfiction books available in this day and age generally anywhere. That's not to say they don't have their place, but I'm not a fan of them. I'd much rather have a nonfiction book with information that is new (to me, anyways). With that being said, I picked this book up with the knowledge that it was an allegorical & classic novel; it's subtle message hinting at society, science and life at large (or whatever you interpret it to be). Moreover, it seems to be a common name for those interested in society & history. I gave in somewhat reluctantly and somewhat curiously, and read Mr Huxley's novel.

How We Are Imprisoned Today (A Poem)

   


  The following is a poem written Mike Adams of NaturalNews, entitled "To Imprison Us All."

"To imprison our memories, they gave us revisionist history.

To imprison our present-day minds, they made us drink fluoride.

To imprison our biology, they gave us prescription medications.

To imprison our ideas, they created intellectual property laws.

To imprison our legal identities, they created social security numbers.

To imprison our children, they gave us vaccines.

To imprison our mental health, they gave us psychiatry.

To imprison our agriculture, they created genetically modified seeds.

To imprison our soils, they created chemical pesticides.

To imprison our sense of self worth, they created fashion and cosmetics.

To imprison our speech, they created SOPA.

To imprison our persons and effects, they created the TSA.

To imprison our protests, they created the NDAA.

To imprison our productivity, they created the IRS.

To imprison our money supply, they created the Federal Reserve.

To imprison our financial future, they created endless debt.

To imprison our consumption habits, they created television advertising.

To imprison our perspective, they created television news.

To imprison our medical professionals, they created medical schools.

To imprison scientific truth, they created science journals.

To imprison our teenage boys, they created violent video games.

To imprison our teenage girls, they created Gardasil.

To imprison our online interactions, they created search engine profiling and tracking technology.

To imprison our sex, they created sexual dysfunction diseases.

To imprison our foods and farms, they created the Health Department.

And then,

To secure the prisons against resistance, they passed gun restriction laws.

To quell dissent, they taught the masses to be dehumanized and dumbed-down.

To solidy their arrogance over the masses, they erected a scientific dictatorship.

To ensure blind obedience, they positioned government as savior.

But,

While the prisons were numerous and carefully constructed,

No matter how hard they tried,

They could not imprison our souls.

And once we recognized the prisons,

And identified those responsible for building them,

We rose up against them,

Setting free our minds,

Our bodies

Our children

Our productivity

Our liberties

And our futures.

We are Americans. To imprison us all...

Is inconceivable."
