So Very Unlikely

Posted in Politics, Society on January 12th, 2014

Sometimes you find an image that, at first glance, seems worth far more than 1000 words of truth. Sadly, sometimes you look at it again and find that the overt truth is being used to cover a disgusting lie or, at the very least, something so very unlikely as to be safely relegated to the realm of fantasy or delusional optimism.

Pledge to Obama
Indoctrinate Then Early And Obedience Is Assured

Given the sorry state of public schools and the nature of the rank and file of the various teachers unions, can any American honestly be expected to believe that a teacher would “facepalm” instead smiling upon seeing and hearing their students pledging their allegiance to Obama?

Duck And Cover!

Posted in Politics, Religion, Society on December 14th, 2013

I bet you never knew that “Merry Christmas” was a battle cry and a verbal threat that strikes fear into what passes for the hearts of Liberals and Progressives. It is though these days.

"Merry Christmas" the battle cry
Duck And Cover, Class! It’s An American!

The Liberals and Progressives have allied themselves with- and filled their ranks with the Godless. And in recent years have been waging a war on Christmas and on Christianity in general, the normative religion of Americans and the one, singular religion that they fear and hate more than any other. And nowhere’s is their war more stringently and virulently prosecuted than in America’s schools.

Conversely, they’ll teach Muslim holidays along with the occasional Hindu one and they don’t, as of yet, even understand the Pagan ones, so this is a problem for the Christians to correct.

So, if your child does say, “Merry Christmas,” he or she will be treated as someone who is threatening their class. And, in the minds of the Godless Left, they are doing so.

I Said Christmas
There Are Many Levels Of Martyrdom

So, whether your child chooses to make a declarative stand for religious freedom or they just innocently express their joy of the season, you can expect them to be martyred for it.

And the Gods forbid that they hand out Christmas cards or wear any form of Christmas themed clothing…

Greasing The Slope

Posted in Ethics & Morality, Politics, Society on October 23rd, 2013

Slippery SlopeThe Slippery Slope is generally considered to be a fallacy. It is an argument in which a person asserts that some event must inevitably follow from another, prior event without any providing any argument for the inevitability of the event in question. In most cases, there are a series of steps or gradations between the eventual event and the one being argued against but no reason is given as to why the intervening steps or gradations will simply be bypassed or enacted in their turn.

In general I agree. The Slippery Slope is a fallacy and, much more often than not, sloppy thinking. But what if we’re greasing the slope as it were?

Many laws, especially those dealing with sexual partnering, sexual acts, and sexual relationships are wholly or primarily based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices.” Many of those laws that once had valid scientific rationales at one time have lost those rationals due to medical advances. Others had and still have outcome-based basis in the effects such things have upon the titular children of such unions, yet those negative consequences have been ignored in favor of a new ideology.

As you chip away at those laws that are based upon societal mores and cultural “prejudices” or apply new societal mores and cultural “prejudices” to existing situations you can make it so that each increase in permissiveness makes the next incremental increase that much more likely through normalizing or “main streaming” what was once unthought-of, abhorrent, and/or outre.

Western, especially American, jurisprudence also has to be taken into account because it’s inherently based upon Common Law and under the US interpretation of such court cases are decided based upon prior argument, precedents, and judicial pronouncements rather than solely on legislative enactments. in other words, arguments and verdicts in prior, similar court cases can be compelling or even binding precedents in current and future cases.

The Slope As It Was, Is, and Will Probably Be

Past Present Future
Miscegenation Sodomy Gay Marriage Polygamy
Fornication Incest
Adultery Pedophilia
BDSM

Progress Is Opinion. Progression Is Mathematics

The battle to overturn the laws against miscegenation was long and hard-fought but it was victorious. But many of the same arguments that were successfully used Loving v. Virginia to end those “Jim Crow” statutes were later used in Lawrence v. Texas to abolish or make largely enforceable the various laws against: Sodomy, Fornication, Adultery, and violent sexual fetishism (BDSM). In turn, arguments from both Loving and Lawrence have been used to legalize Gay Marriage in various states and to overturn DOMA at the federal level.

Each set of court cases added their levels of grease to the slope, making it increasingly slippery. Hence, there is no logical reason not to predict that this progression will continue and that these increasingly entrenched arguments and precedents will be used to legalizing polygamy, incest, and some forms and/or levels of pedophilia.
