I’d a never a thunk…

…that I’d a be a postin’ Jimmy Buffet on this here blog thingy. I ain’t a never been a parrot head.

Well I guess I just am a gonna have to. The song is unfortunately too appropriate and frankly well done. I guess you could say it’s my protest song for the current state of our justice department.

Sing it Jimmy.

Clarity

Vote.

I find it hard to believe I actually have to post this. It’s clearly written yet orders are being prepared for signature to directly violate this very article.

I’ll say it again, Vote.

Vote because the validity of the U.S. constitution depends on it.

Just because I was born with a penis…

Just because I was born with a penis, doesn’t mean I’m a male.

I have a penis, and I personally identify as a male.

Should another human make the decision for me as to which sex identify? No.

Should a government tell me if I am a woman or a man based on a bodily organ between my legs? Hell Fucking No.

Whether I identify as male or female (or neither) is what I am, from what is deep inside of me. That which is my own identity which is me. No one else decides for me who or what I am that is uniquely me. Period.

I have no right to choose for another human who or what they are. I collectively with others as a society, have no right to force any individual to be something other than that which is them themselves from deep within their souls.

What is between another human’s legs does not make anyone who or what they are. That which is deep within a person’s soul is who they are, character is who they are, honesty is who they are, personality is who they are, kindness, work, creativity, contributions, service, love, originality, beauty is who they are. Sex is not who or what a human is.

Sex or gender, and sexuality for that matter, is only a small part of a human, of a person. Sex is not what or who I am, and nor is it who or what you are.

No person nor any government has the right to decide who or what I am, or who or what you are.

Respect, equality, understanding and acceptance are the qualities that I support and strive for. I only ask the same in return. I expect and support a government that shares these values.

Speak now, before it’s too late.

Because

I repost this wonderful Gilda Radner diddy again because I simply need something to take my mind off politics today.

Who knows if it conveniently coincidentally just might allegedly be a message to a certain political body? Who knows?

Let’s go with I’ll just enjoy Gilda’s incrdibly humorous talent. She brightens my day.

Opinion piece

I have an opinion. So does the maker of this New York Times video.

We both have the right to express our opinions. We also have the right to agree or disagree or even maybe find a grey area or common ground, or at least we do right now.

If we wish to be able to freely have our opinions, express our opinions, debate our opinions and work toward common good we all must vote in the November midterms. That is vote before it’s too late.

Oh and the video? It’s worth the watch.

Voice

Fearful all alone no one understands

An amoral majority sets the rules

Fearful and alone no one lends a hand

The minions of the rulers do the dirty work

Freedoms are taken one by one

Rulers twist minds, bend rules, stretch truth into lies

Imprisoned, beaten and shunned no longer alone

Hypocrite monsters devout of soul feed their ego

One by one, group by group the prey are consumed

A behemoth demon laughs at the death of humanity

Merely a bystander I wasn’t the alone, thus my voice I never raised

Staring me in the eye the beast salivates

I’m now fearful all alone as no one is left who could understand
