Kimberly Guilfoyle Tells Young Women Not to Vote

Posted by Troy on 23rd October 2014 in Current Events, Entertainment, Political

Kimberly Guilfoyle has come under fire for, supposedly, telling young women to go back to their Tinder and not vote.  I, of course, will come to her defense.  Not because I secretly want to be her boyfriend or anything, but out a sense of fairness.  While I do not always agree with what she says, I would admit that most of my responses to her would go something like, “Duh dah duh… hi-yuck… gorsh.”  (For those Philistines out there, that is a Goofy meeting a beautiful woman reference)

Sadly, the current generation has been dumbed down so much that they do not get sarcasm or any sort of cleverness.  You see, Kimberly wasn’t saying that young women should not vote.  She is really saying that they are willfully uninformed.  While this is rampant in all sectors of our society, it would appear that young women, in particular, are glued to their cell phones.  These devices, while useful, have become such a distraction that focus is not being given to issues that actually matter.

There is a lie out there that “Everybody should vote.”  Hell no.  Not everyone should vote.  That is the worst thing ever.  Everyone has a RIGHT to vote.  That, I agree.  However, if you honestly have no idea what is going on, I do not want you voting.  This is not to say that I don’t want you voting because I disagree with you.  Let’s take a couple of scenarios.

1 – I am against the NSA spying on Americans.  Joe didn’t know it was happening.  I tell him we are voting about it.  He informs me he will vote for it.  I ask him why.  He responds, “I trust my government.  If they think it’s a good idea, I believe them.”  I do NOT want this man voting.  He has put no thought into anything.

2 – Same as before, but Sally is for it.  I ask her why.  She starts spouting nonsense about terrorism and how many terror attacks were prevented and that it’s important that we give up some rights for the greater good.  I truly believe that Sally is dumb as bricks.  However, she has thought about it.  She has come up with her reasons.  I might try to change her mind by debating her, but I’m okay with her voting.

That is all that Kimberly was saying.  She wasn’t really telling young women NOT TO VOTE.  She was telling young women to EDUCATE THEMSELVES WITH IMPORTANT ISSUES.  Of course, the Left realllllly doesn’t want ANYBODY educating themselves about the issues, so they are trying to demonize her instead.

Long Live the Constitution!

Nicki Minaj to vote Obama

Oh my God!  Who could have ever guessed?  If you didn’t know, she suggested in a song that she was a Republican voting for Romney.  Obama doubted that, and she confirmed that saying that the “smart ones” always get creative sarcasm.  Yes, and the dumb ones always vote Obama.  ha ha.  Of course, I was sadden by this.  Voting Romney would have made her much more interesting.  A black, female rapper voting for Romney!  That’s as interesting as a KKK member voting for Obama!  Oh well.  I like interesting people.  Too bad.

Who should give charity?

Posted by Troy on 9th September 2012 in Human Nature

Catholics tend to support Democrats.  A Catholic asked me why this is.  The reason the church usually gives is that the Democratic party supports giving to the poor.  They overlook the whole abortion, gay marriage, and increased acceptance of divorce, but okay.  But here’s a question: Why do they support the Democrats for “giving to the poor?”  You see, the thing is that the only way the government can give to the poor is through coercion.  When the poor vote to take money from the rich to have it redistributed to the poor, they are not engaging in charity.  They are  engaging in theft.  Is it really any different than if men took a vote and ordered women to have sex with them?  People aren’t supposed to pay taxes as their form of “charity.”  They are supposed to give money to people, churches, and other charities.  I don’t think Jesus will say, “Good man!  You filed your 1040 and didn’t even claim some of your legitimate itemized deductions so that the government will have more money to support the poor!  Good going!  Welcome to Heaven!”  There are also some bad side effects to the government taking over charity.  Those receiving aid have no moral obligation to the giver of the aid.  When friends and neighbors help someone, the donee feels, typically, the need to live up to the help by trying to get to a point where they don’t need help.  No one has that feeling to the government.  Also, if the church is helping someone, that person has a greater chance to converting to that religion and maybe making positive changes to their lives.  Again, this does not happen with help from the government.  The government is also very inefficient with the money.  There is a lack of policing of the funds.  If you give your friend $100 and then catch him getting lap dances down at the strip club, you’re probably not going to give him any more money, are ya?  The government will.  Finally, the government taking over the role of charity provider degrades the moral fiber of society.  People start to think that the government will take care of people, and they will stop giving to charity themselves.  There is a reason why America far outpaces the rest of the world in charitable giving.  It is also a key reason why Republicans tend to give much more to charities than Democrats (statistically true).

Long Live the Constitution!
