Abortion, Gay Marriage & the GRA
I promised to avoid discussing these issues because I believe most Americans
cannot intelligently discuss the topics because of prior conditioning and outright ignorance. Today the
United States Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act a decision that mad
e some happy and upset others. The first groups to complain were church groups speaking of degrading the v
alue of marriage totally ignoring the hypocrisy filling their mouths as the most divorced group in the country are Christians.
A question occurs to the religious and those opposed to gay marriage and that is why. There can be no religious justification considering divorce rates and adultery rates. So, the answer must lie elsewhere and in my opinion it is hatred. Some would not characterize it as hatred, but as uncomfortableness. Whatever it is called in any other setting is hatred. My personal q
uestion is, “Who cares?” I certainly don’t give a damn about who’s doing who. It has no effect on my marriage and the values of my family.
In Texas abortion fervor is burning brightly as expected in a highly religious, conservative Bible Belt state. Once again, Texas is leading the charge to find a way to end abortion in the state by making it more difficult to obtain. For me the obvious question is why there such a demand for abortions? Will banning abortion stop people from having unplanned pregnancy? Why are those so concerned with bring another life into the world lined up to adopt these children, help the mothers, find decent housing and assist rather than complain about the taxes. By the way Texas is also a leader in abortion despite its Bible Belt status.
NSA spy reports are more popular than NCIS reruns and the information is nearly as strained and speculated. Anyone in this country that doesn’t recognize they being monitored just fell off the turnip truck or has been in a coma for the last fifty years. Once the US became electronic one of the first people the military recruited was Thomas Edison although it is said nothing came of the collaboration we have to take that on faith.
Breaking codes and listening in on conversations are time honored espionage techniques. V
What goes on at NSA is serious business and unfortunately much of it is necessary because of the people we harbor here, the number of unscrupulous businesses and power of the military tied to the government. There are things we need to fear, but currently the NSA is not one of them until we know what was lost if anything and what damage control is necessary if any voices can be read from a window as it acts as diaphragm that sophisticated software interprets, but that’s old now. Banks of supercomputers can scan millions of phone calls in mere seconds looking for key words. Yet, the best source of information is us. Nearly anything about a person can be found on the Internet including maiden names, street addresses, family pictures, history and more without the aid of NSA.
Perhaps, I said all of this just to say if it doesn’t affect you “mind your own business.”
