To all you Chuckmeister fans out there, you may have noticed that there's been a dearth of postings of late. That's because I've been moving into Fortress Chuckmeister over the past few months and it's been taking my time away from causing trouble. But I'm back! So, sit back, grab a glass of good Cab and ingest my most recent rant. I hope I've hit your sweet spot...
I don't know about you, but I'm growing weary of hearing the increasingly ugly bleatings from the perpetually aggrieved minorities among us.
I don't mean minorities, per se. I'm not talking about run-of-the-mill, everyday Blacks, Jews, Greeks, Casino-Owning (Woo Woo) Indians or Ice Road-trucking Eskimos. No children, I'm talking about single-issue minorities who make it their mission in life to ruin ours.
What I'm talking about is the ever-more-screechingly-vocal minorities like PETA, Gun-Controllers, Climate-Changers, Income-Redistributors and Waaaaay-Out-Of-The-Closet Gays.
There's probably not more than a few thousand hard-core animal-rights PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) folks wandering around out there. But wear a coat made out of the skin of some poor beast that PETA loves (which would include any beast except an ex-husband) and they'll cover you with red paint. Apparently, they identify more with sheep and lizards then they do with humans. I guess that tells you all you need to know about this group.
And there's probably not more than a few hundred thousand misguided souls (mostly located near either of the two oceans...funny how salt air seems to negatively influence the liberal weenies among us) who think that if we'd just outlaw guns there wouldn't be any guns, and hence, no gun crimes. Take a look at the gun crime statistics in countries where guns have been effectively outlawed (The U.K., Russia, Venezuela, Australia, etc., etc.) and you'll discover the folly of that argument. Gun control isn't about guns. It's about control.
And, don't lose sight of the fact that 100,000,000 Americans own more than 300,000,000 guns. And that every year somewhere between 1.5 and 2.0 million times a legal gun-owner thwarts a felony by whipping out his heater. why doesn't the Mainstream Media report that fact? Hmmm.
Just for kicks and giggles, take note of the fact that the number of guns in Americans' private hands has nearly doubled in the past twenty years. And the number of gun-related crimes has dropped by nearly half during that period. Double hmmmm.
And take note also of the fact that the number of concealed carry permits (CCW) in Florida has now exceeded one million, or just about 5% of the Sunshine State's population. In fact, the number of permits has increased 30% in just the past year. And the number of gun crimes in Florida has decreased...ready for it?...by fully 30% in that same period. Triple hmmmmm.
One might actually think that, as guns increase, gun crimes go down. Quadruple hmmmmmmm.
By the by, the largest advocacy group in the country, claiming more than 5,000,000 members, is the National Rifle Association. Talk about a minority!
But the gun-haters, fueled by micromanaging nannies like billionaire, ex-NYC Mayor little Mikey Bloomberg, never, ever give up. They keep whining and moaning and screaming, hoping against hope, that America will decide to one day simply erase the 2nd Amendment and go straight from the 1st to the 3rd. Dumb, yes. But that's their plan.
Remember, an armed society is a polite society. That's why Mikey Bloomberg is protected constantly by armed guards.
And even though the temperature of the Earth has actually decreased during the past couple of decades, and the ice caps at both poles have increased in size, and that China and India keep on polluting 24/7, opening numerous coal-fired power plants weekly, as they do, the Climate Isn't Changing!
But, led by useful idiots like Al Gore, and his sycophantic moron followers like Leo DiCaprio, who keep on buying electric cars, this dead-end issue isn't going away any time soon. Take it from me, this little minority won't be dissuaded. Too bad.
And we could tell the Arabs who hate us and want us dead to get Ducked if we would just pull out all the stops and drill and frack morning until night. And, do so in every place where there might be even a drop of crude. And that includes in Nancy Pelosi's back yard.
It's now a well known fact that the U.S. has more identified, but as yet untapped shale oil resources then does the entire Middle East. And along with Canada and Mexico, we could together be capable of providing for our own oil and gas needs for the Rest of Time. Oh, and export a whole bunch to our friends as well.
We could, that is, but the vocal tiny minority who hate oil will not be silenced. The Sierra Club and the Oceans Foundation and Robert Redford and his ilk will not be dissuaded. And they screw the rest of us who so far haven't beaten the crap out of them and sent them to bed without din-din. Too bad, again.
And then there's the "Income Redistributors," or those who wish to have income equality regardless of whether they actually earned it or deserve it. I had a conversation just last evening with a professor and PhD candidate in Geography and Climate Justice (whaaaat?). He stated unequivocally that Climate Change is real (!), that all the environmental scientists agree (!!), and that Polar Bears were drowning as we spoke (!!!). I told him that Polar Bears could swim 60 miles looking for a stray seal, but he wasn't dissuaded.
And, he said, that health care was a "right," despite the fact that it isn't, and that the "1%" should be raped, pillaged and plundered so as to take from them what they worked for and have garnered and give it to the legions who sit around all day long sucking down Pabst Blue Ribbon, paid for with SNAP cards, watching Jerry Springer reruns.
Barry "The Insurance Salesman-in-Chief" Oblamo preaches incessantly about the fact we have income inequality. HELLO! We have had income inequality since well before Jesus. Before Moses. Before Noah, for God's sake! We're going to have income inequality probably long after Jesus returns.
They had income equality in the Soviet Union, by the way. Then, truck drivers made the same as physicians. Truck drivers weren't happy. Physicians weren't happy. Everybody as equal. Some were just a bit more equal than others. How did that work out?
But the group that most ruffles my duck feathers as of this writing are the militant, fascistic, flaming, effete, narcissistic gays. Having successfully exited the "closet," wherever that is, they now want anyone who has anything even remotely negative to say about this widely accepted but once deviant, and according the Bible, sinful, lifestyle to be excoriated, pilloried and skinned alive. To be shamed! To be fired, or WORSE! And that was on display writ large a few days ago when Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Robertson's GQ interview hit the newsstands.
Good Ol' Phil had some rather unkind things to say about gays. And like a Fast Reaction Military Force, that reacts fast except in situations like Benghazi, the folks from GLAAD pounced! They demanded, demanded, that AandE, the network that carries this, the Most Popular, Highest-Rated Show in the History of Television, immediately fire Phil. And they did, by indefinitely suspending him. Whatever that means.
So the DD family immediately responded by informing AandE, and the world, that they just couldn't get their arms around the thought of continuing without daddy. What we have here, children, is a good old Mexican Standoff. The question is, just who are the Mexicans?
Gays could have simply issued a statement that they disagreed vehemently with Phil's position on their lifestyle, but that he had every right to embrace it. Because that's the way we do things in America, and we're all Americans. They could have done that, but didn't. A big, big mistake, if you ask me.
They chose rather to yell, and scream, and kick, and fume! And to make a Federal Case out of this! And AandE bent over and grabbed their ankles (so to speak). They are a bunch of pink-pantied weenies, without question.
So, my friends, I believe it's finally time to eschew the gulp, swallow, and take it crowd, and turn our backs on political correctness. I suggest that, if the gays want to lead every argument with their sexuality, rather than just living their private lives in private, we majority, God-fearing, gun-loving, chest-thumping, flag waving patriots do exactly the same. I suggest we gather together, grab the pitchforks and torches, and storm the battlements!
GLAAD, the militant minority gays' acronym, stands for "Gays and Lesbians Against Defamation." Okay. We, the majority of Americans, need to come up with an acronym of our own and stop putting up with minorities imposing their beliefs upon us at every turn. I suggest: "MAFUWSIW," for, "Mainstream Americans Fed Up With Single-Issue Weenies."
Then, whenever any of the whiny, tantrum-throwing minorities decide to open their pie holes and make some comment disparaging to normal faith and family values, we can cloud up and rain all over them.
Imagine if millions, millions, of outraged Americans swarmed CBS, NBC, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, PBS or any cable channel that chose to air something we, the vaaaast majority, find objectionable, just like GLAAD did to AandE, and voiced our collective outrage. Let's find out...
* Oh, I should add to the foregoing list of minorities shameless Race-Hustling Poverty Pimps like the Reverends-Without-Churches Jessuh Jackson and Al Sharpton. They are beneath contempt and should be shunned by all self-respecting Black people everywhere. They are a minority of two. I suggest we go all "MAFUWSIW" on their asses. What do you think?
