the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming, as narcotics, to such an extent that its cessation causes severe trauma.
Its an extremely toxic action that many of us are aware of. We hear about from the media, friends, family, co-workers, and more. It comes in many varieties such as alcohol, drugs, even porn.What we don’t talk about is the dangerous addiction of the left.
What addiction you might ask?
The addiction of championing something. The left is all about being someone’s champion.
Look at any leftist group. They are out being the champion of some group, from blacks to muslims to the LGBT groups. They will assail you with pages upon pages of victimization caused by some majority, usually white, Christians, or the right.
Many such causes start out with some justification which is used over and over again as this addiction takes hold.
By now you’re asking, why is this a bad thing?
Well, what happens with the left is after they win a point they don’t sit back and go its better now. They have hit a high, they got something done! Now they need to find the next thing to champion so they can get their next high.
With each step they get further and further outrageous to gain more and more attention.
Its the reason why 15 years ago if one saw an article claiming ‘snow is racist’, we’d all laugh and know it was satire and probably from the Onion. Today, we no longer know if its satire, and in fact on one college campus students readily signed on to ban “White Christmas” because it was racist.
This is a perfect example of the championing addiction. They are constantly looking, and finding, something to champion no matter how outrageous because they’ve become addicted to it.
Like a drug addict they don’t see the harm they are creating. They’ve allowed themselves to believe they are doing the right thing for someone else. They are ‘helping’ some poor soul who can’t speak for him/herself. They become immune to anything other than something that supports their narrow conclusion.
Debate is pointless with these addicts. Its why they call anyone who dares challenge them names. To them that person isn’t human. They will scream any number of names, do anything do shut them up, and not care at all.
The addiction is that powerful. That’s what we are up against in the far left.
By now, most of you have seen the following commercial by Liberty Mutual Insurance:
I despise the commercial. No, despise isn’t a strong enough word.
Look at what is shows. You have three teens who got a flat tire. What do they do? Call someone else.
Think about that sad statement. They called someone else.
Just thirty years ago this would have been considered laughable. If I did this in high school my friends would have laughed at me. I’d be known as the guy who couldn’t change a flat.
In a way this shows how backwards our thinking has become. When a problem arises we have to call someone else. We don’t roll up our sleeves and dig in and solve the problem, or in this case, change the tire.
I had friends in high school who could change out the engine of their car, and even a few girls. Today, how many can say the same thing in an upscale school district? Probably not many.
Back when I went to high school, if this commercial came out we’d have laughed at it. Today, people think its a good idea.
I have always been a sci-fi fan when it comes to movies and stories. I enjoy seeing how someone creates another world, universe of our future. In some cases, like Star Trek, it provides inspiration to creators of technology.
Growing up I loved two shows, Battlestar Galactica and Star Wars. The first real movie I can remember watching was The Empire Strikes Back in a cold theater in Banff, Alberta.
When the prequels came out I was one of those who stood in line all night long to get tickets to The Phantom Menace. I’ve bought action figures, all the movies, love watching them all.
So when the sequels were announced I was excited, a chance to see how the universe of Star Wars adapted after the defeat of the Emperor. What happened to Luke, Leia, Han and the others. The next movie was announced as The Force Awakens. Oh, so much mystery in the title, was it an awakening of Luke and others? Continue reading…
A terrible tragedy is occurring right before our eyes. The terrible tragedy of another high school shooting, this time in Florida becoming the shining beacon for the left on gun control.
Too many young people did die that day which didn’t have to. But is the ‘walk out’ protest really the right way to correct the problems?
If one examines what happened we have failures across the board. The FBI failed to really investigate and stop the shooter before anything happened. Multiple complains came in and yet, nothing happened at all. There are statements that during the shooting that not only was the school guard outside, but so were three other police officers. For some reason declined to enter the school.
The holidays are coming up and looking around it makes me wish for the old days.
I can hear the leftists now, you are a boring old conservative. They’ll say that instead of asking the real question, why?
The excitement and joy of Christmas seems gone in today’s modern world. The wonder, people actually wishing others peace and happiness and meaning it, not that it was a given to say to others.
I looked at my leftist friends and they seem determined on making Christmas more like, well, Halloween or something. Drab colors, boring get ups, and no heart behind it all. Its like they purposefully go forth to destroy the heart of Christmas.
76 years ago today at five minutes to 8 AM in Hawaii the silence, and peace, was broken by the sounds of approaching planes. Those stationed on the military bases and ships looked up never expecting what was about to happen.
Imperial Japan struck first using planes from six aircraft carriers to launch a surprise attack upon the US Pacific fleet based in Pearl Harbor.
There is a lot about the subject written, supporting both a conspiracy and denying it. However, what it did do was bring a nation together. Americans learned of the attack while listening to the baseball game on the radio and newpaper extras. Continue reading…
Its that time of year where everyone seems to get triggered when told, “Merry Christmas” when leaving a store.
Why, oh why, are so many afraid to hear these words? The left cries they are forcing their religion down upon me.
I wasn’t aware of bodily tying them up, and then forcing them to church? When did that happen when wishing someone Merry Christmas? Am I doing it wrong? Perhaps, just perhaps, I should be tying these leftists and atheists up and dragging them to church to make sure they receive God’s word. Continue reading…
Yesterday, in case you missed it, during the Big 12 football game between Oklahoma University and Kansas University there came some bad blood. The result, the thin-skinned people who are easily offended by an obscene gesture.
Mayfield hurled a few ‘fuck yous’ to the Kansas crowd and team while grabbing his crotch (twice).
Oh my, what a offensive thing to do. After all, that’s never been done before, ever. I’m sure no player on the Kansas sideline had ever heard fuck you yelled at them before. Not in this day and age. I’m sure these puritans were completely shocked upon hearing such language wondering where it could have come from. Continue reading…
Well, another shooting has occurred, and as my custom I wait a bit before speaking about it. I do this to let rumors die down, and for the truth to hopefully come forth.
What has come to my attention, isn’t that we need to ban guns, but once more its something about society.
Let’s look at three recent shootings this year:
The first one, against a Republican Congressman who was with a group practicing with other Republicans. The only one to die was the shooter himself and the others who were shot were fortunate to recover. The shooter, a left-wing activist. Continue reading…
Got through watching a great World Series last night between two great teams.
Congrats to the Astros for winning the series and their first championship in team history. Honestly, one of the best WS I’ve seen. There was a little bit of both throughout the series.
Listening to some before the series started I expected the Dodgers to run though the Astros, but having watched the team all year I realized it would be a close series, going 6 or 7 games.
Looking back at the series, the turning point to me was in the 8th and 9th innings of game 2. You have the Dodgers up 1-0 in the series, up 3-1 in the game and a closer coming on with one on in the 8th. Jansen is considered the best closer, and I’m sure at the beginning of the game if you asked any Dodger fan, they would be all right with this situation. Continue reading…
