Governor Chris Christie

Posted by Troy on 29th July 2013 in Current Events, Political

Originally, I think everyone (well…not everyone) liked Chris Christie.  When people opposed his cost saving measures, he would cut them off and wouldn’t allow them to take it to some ridiculous, emotional level that denied the merits of what he was doing.  Everyone cheered this, as I think most people are tired of being lead around by the heart and having us go further and further in debt for it.  However, over time, it turned out that his bombastic attitude did not extend to just the issues.  He isn’t the no-nonsense leader that we have all be waiting for.  Instead, he is an imperial leader who doesn’t like to be questioned.  Of course, who likes to be questioned?  Still, in our system of government, you do not get to have your way and override your opposition just because they disagree with you.  One has to ask, isn’t that a lot like Obama himself?  In fact, Christie supports global warming, cap and tax, gun control measures, and the NSA spying on Americans.  How can we trust him?  I sincerely hope that we, as a country, do not fall for his sales pitch and see him as he really is.

Long Live the Constitution!

Eliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner

Posted by Troy on 24th July 2013 in Current Events, Political

Everyone is talking about Anthony Weiner.  Here’s the thing…his wife clearly knows and accepts this part of his life and doesn’t care.  How can I say that?  A woman might forgive the first instance of public humiliation.  After the second time, it is obvious the person isn’t going to change.  That means she either knows and accepts it or she’s a total doormat.  Her poise and facial expression suggests the first.  Now, I actually don’t hold it against him.  If his wife’s on board, that’s between them.  I wouldn’t have a problem if he came out and said they have an open marriage.  He didn’t do that though.  Instead, they pandered to the masses on the assumption that we are so stupid that we would accept what he said, and that would be that.  Sadly, it might be working since he’s ahead in the polls despite being a complete moron.

However, Eliot Spitzer, I have no mercy for.  Again, I really don’t care that he went to prostitutes.  What I have a problem with was that he went to prostitutes while he was cracking down on prostitution and throwing hookers, pimps, and johns (like himself) into jail.  That’s what I have a problem with.  You might not like a pothead, but there is something particularly disgusting with a sheriff that throws potheads in jail all day and then goes home and lights up a joint.  Just sayin’.  He’s also up in the polls.  Yeah, I don’t know why New York is having problems…

The Conjuring

Posted by Troy on 20th July 2013 in Entertainment

I worried that this movie would make use of the “handheld camera” thing that is going on.  However, except for a 5 minute spot, this movie is done with your standard movie cameras.  I would give the movie 3 stars, recommending it to people  And it has the creepiest movie doll of all time in it.  It’s based on a true story, so that always gets extra points.  There’s a religious aspect to it.  Depending on who you are, this will either add, subtract, or do nothing for your enjoyment of the movie.

Boston Bomber on the Cover of Rolling Stone

Posted by Troy on 20th July 2013 in Current Events

I don’t mind that they put a picture of the Boston Bomber, what I hate is that they used a glam picture.  The picture on the cover looks like “The Next Cat Stevens Releases His First Album!” picture.  This glamorizes a murder that killed children.  This is what they do.  I have no respect for Rolling Stone.  Personally, I view it as a magazine for brain-dead morons that either 1) need to be told their cool or 2) have their views and taste verified by a third party as being cool.   If they were to use a picture, they should have had a picture of him bloodied up and split screened it with a picture of a bloody person missing their limbs or the poor dead child.  That would have been a SHOCKING cover.  FAIL!

South Koreans that Hate Americans

Posted by Troy on 18th July 2013 in Uncategorized

Recently, some bastard recorded himself humiliating a Korean girl in a club.  What is amazing is that quite a few South Koreans blame the girl for being into American men.  Okay…I understand that Americans are hated the world over.  We could make arguments all day long for every single country in the world to hate us…EXCEPT for the South Koreans.  I don’t care what we have done to them in the past or what we do to them now in some minor sense of the term.  All they have to do is glance over their northern border and realize that we saved them from that fate and, quite possibly, we are the only thing that is keeping them from that fate.  As such, I just don’t understand how any South Korean can hate America, and that goes for Psy who made a lot of money off of us as well.

And society breaksdown

Posted by Troy on 16th July 2013 in Current Events, Political

More than 56% of all people who commit murder in Chicago are under the age of 25.  That should tell you something.  That should tell you how effective our nanny-state, single-parent system is working for us.  This should tell you how the abandonment of religious beliefs are–just ask Nietzsche.  This is what he predicted.  In Florida, a man is being threatened and the President is trying to take way all law-abiding citizens’ guns because he shot someone who was beating the hell outta him.  They will actually use the fact that a man DEFENDED himself as proof that we need to be disarmed!  We have gone through the Looking Glass!  We are in the Rabbit Hole!  Rod Serling rejected this plot because it was too “out there!”

What’s the solution?  Parents teaching kids.  Parents telling the government to keep their nose outta their family’s business.  Teaching kids the value of life.  Teaching kids morals and ethics.  Teaching right and wrong!  We can’t teach the hog trough mentality that is the welfare state.  That is where we are going wrong.  It’s time to get back to the Constitution!

Long Live the Constitution!

To the Trayvon Supporters and Zimmerman Haters

Posted by Troy on 14th July 2013 in Current Events, Political

Okay, you are being mislead.  Seriously.

I have thought long and hard.  If the situation were reversed, (ie, the black guy was Zimmerman), I would still support this decision.  Your side cannot say the same.

Could you imagine if Trayvon pulled up in his car and saw a skinhead acting suspicious in his neighborhood.  Trayvon called the cops, and the cops tell him to stay in the car.  Trayvon disobeyed the order and gets out.  The skinhead, who had just went out for a pack of cigarettes and nothing more, jumps on top of him because he is pissed off that Trayvon is following him.  He’s on top of him beating the crap out of Trayvon.  Trayvon pulls a gun and kills him.  The state tries Trayvon for second degree murder…and wins!  Do you think Al Sharpton would praise the courts for upholding justice?  Hell no!  This is exactly what he would say:

“A black man!  A Ba-Lack man was pinned down by a Wa-hite man.  He was getting beaten by this white man.  He defended himself, and we put him in jail!  A black man isn’t even allowed to defend himself in his own neighborhood!”

That’s exactly what would be said.  This isn’t about the facts.  This is only about skin color to those who wish to capitalize on it either for monetary or political gain.  Everything you said about Zimmerman, you can attribute to Trayvon.  You say Zimmerman shouldn’t have gotten out of the car.  Fine.  We’ll assume we live in a police state where the cops can tell us what we can or cannot do at all times.  Trayvon could have avoided the confrontation by: 1) keep on walking, 2) run like hell, 3) talk calmly to Zimmerman until the cops arrived and sorted things out, or 4) just not jumped on top of Zimmerman and beat the snot out of him.  You say Zimmerman is racist (despite any explicit proof provided that I know of), but Trayvon called Zimmerman a cracker, so he was just as racist.

Finally, when someone is on top of you beating you senseless, you are not in a thoughtful frame of mind.  That is survival, and that’s that.  There is no, “Huh, I’m being beaten up.  What would be the best way I should handle this?” ability.

Monster University

Posted by Troy on 12th July 2013 in Entertainment

Monster University was a cute little movie.  There’s not really much I can say about it.  Life-lessonwise, it was slim, so don’t think your kids will learn much from it from a moral of the tale point of view.  However, it was an enjoyable way to pass an hour and a half.  That’s about the best I can say for any movie.  Also, I wouldn’t spring for the 3D.  Really didn’t add much to it.

Rephrasing the debate

Posted by Troy on 11th July 2013 in Uncategorized

The Left always seems to rephrase the debate.  You see, on immigration, they will declare not being for a “path to citizenship” is about racism.  If you don’t want to give millions of people who have broken the law citizenship and allow them to vote and collect benefits, it must be due to their race.  If you are against abortion, it isn’t about the fact that you believe that a fetus is alive and a human being with our own DNA, it is because you hate women and you want to control women by preventing them from having abortions.  We could do this all day long.  If you’re against pornography, it’s not because you care about moral fiber, it’s because you want to legislate in the bedroom.  Sadly, we’ve been dumbed down enough where plenty of people accept this rationale.  That’s unacceptable.  We need to be able to have rational discussions to deal with these issues.  Deal with the real issues and the opponent’s point of view, not just try to redefine the argument.

Pets and God

Posted by Troy on 9th July 2013 in Human Nature

It occurs to me the pets offer a template for our relationship with God.  Of course, the first fold of this is the typical submission: that their unconditional love mirrors the unconditional love and forgiveness that God has towards us.  However, I think you could also look at it from the other point of view.  In a very real sense, we are gods to our pets.  We provide and protect them.  For the most part, they will never know anything mightier than their owner who seems to control all that is around them.  You could be having the worst day of your life.  You could have lost your job and be wondering where the next paycheck is coming from.  Your pet is not concerned at all.  They have no worries.  Why is that?  Well, you would probably point out that animals lack the imagination and temporal thought pattern necessary to process possible futures to worry about.  While this is, indeed, a valid point, I do think that there is another explanation.  Regardless of the state of their food bowl, they have faith that there will be food tomorrow and that their god (you) will provide it for them.  Why?  Because you always have.  Not only that, but they are right not to worry.  One way or another, you will find a way to put food on the table.  You will make the choices you have to make and things will work out.  You just have to have faith.

Long Live the Constitution!
