what is a right?

Ok so this post is a bit strange because I am going to try and not state my opinion on this matter. This post is about health care being a right.

For those of you who know me you already know what my stand on government run health care is, but I have found it interesting listening to others argue about it lately (whether it be for or against)

I have heard so many liberals people make the following statment. Why shouldn't everyone have healthcare, its the peoples right to have it. Ok I feel its not that I need to make this statement. No one has a right to a right. I know thats confusing so let me explain. The definition of right (as pertaining to your unalienable right) is an abstract idea of that which is due to a person or governmental body by law or tradition By this definition nothing is a right until it is guaranteed by law or tradition. That means you cannot use the argument its a right until the law is passed, then it becomes your right.

Now for the conservative side, . You say well in order to guarantee your safety we need to infringe on your rights. HELL NO. This has to be the stupidest idea in the history of man kind. It is a right for the sure purpose that you cannot (or are not supposed to)be able to infringe on it. THIS IS THE WORST THING THAT A GOVERNMENT CAN EVER DO. MY RIGHTS ARE THERE FOR A REASON SO THEY WILL STAY THERE AND YOU (the government) WILL NOT VIOLATE THEM IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM.

So in closing, liberals don't try and use rights as an argument for a law, just say what the merits of the law are. Conservatives stay the hell out of my life and don't even think about overstepping your bounds......

For all those who argue about the Second Amendment right to bear arms it is my view that the government violating ones rights is one of the reasons the founding fathers put that into the document, we have the right to stand up and defend out rights!

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Benjamin Franklin

New Jersey Woman

So have you heard about this?

Its all about a fat woman who wants to reach 1000 pounds. She has a website where people can watch her eat and pose in a bikini.

Now I think this is very odd, but if thats what the lady wants to do all the more power to him. The crazy part is how mad some people have gotten. I mean if the woman wants to be half a ton then let her.

And dont try the she is driving up health care costs argument, because that is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. We are trillions of dollars in debt, for the country (not just healthcare) so dont tell me how this one fat woman is costing tax payers thousands.

She is fat and happy, I say all the more power to her.

Besides any future health problems are HER problems not ours.

Survival, stupid and the human race

Ok so I know that I haven't written in a while, I have just been very busy and have not had the chance to.

This entry is about something near and dear to my heart...stupid. I hate stupid. I hate stupid more than anything else in the entire world. Now that is not to say that I hate people if they doing something stupid, or if they make a mistake, or if they act stupid. I am talking about the deep down stupid that can only be represented by things like the following

-People on Jersey shore
-The fact that a pair of jeans can cost upwards of 50 dollars despite the fact the material, labor and transportation couldn't equal more than 10-15 dollars.
-People who can't make up their mind no matter how much thought is put into it. SHIT OR GET OFF THE POT
-People who try and influence others with lies
-Baby Boomers ( yea I said it. And no I do not think that all baby boomers are stupid or evil, but i do think that their generation has set us back)
-The human race

Ok the last one needs some explanation. I do not dislike the human race ( I used to but thats a different post). In fact, through talk with MF and the Varnsi, I have grown to respect the risk and reward of a species that is not adapted to fit anywhere well. Have you ever thought that thought? Humans are adapted to live everywhere somewhat well, but no where very well. Well I digress

The stupid in the human race is evident more now than it has been in the past because of one thing, our ability to adapt. It is what makes us a unique species,but its also what makes us a scourge on the earth. Now this isn't some crunchy hippie shit either. I dont think that we could destroy the Earth is we tried, life always finds a way (to quote Jurassic park)I am talking in the fact that we are using our cognitive abilities to do all of these things to "help" mankind and are no longer in natural balance with the environment. Through medicine and technology mankind can defeat many of the things that once kept our population in check; disease, wild animals, weather etc.

Now I think this is starting to change. Everyone has noticed the increased amount of natural disasters in the world. The severity and frequency of these events seem to so much more. Now some would say that this is due to news and the advanced ability to report, which I partly agree with. That being said nature recognizes the fact that humans, as a species, cannot be supported. The increase in natural disasters, disease (every kind of flu known to man) and increased violence due to people is natures way of trying to get our population back in check. I really am convinced of it.

Now everyone knows about my survival team, but in case you don't lets talk about it. In my mind I always have a running tally of what I would do should the world resort back to the wild. Lets say a terminator-esque type situation occurred. What would I bring, where would I go, who would I go with? Now many would think of the obvious, food and water. And yes I agree that these are two things that are necessary, but I suggest looking at the people around you for your most valuable assets. Yes water and food are good, but anything that you can store will be done within 10 years (lets be realistic) We do not have the ability to carry years and year and years worth of food that would give us the nutrition we need to survive. That problem can be solved by the type of people you bring. Bring smart people that can improvise. Bring people that have skills and leave those behind that do not. Bring both woman and men because otherwise your group will not survive (there is a reason we are both here). So I know invite you all to help me out. What other traits are necessary? What priorities do you think should be at the top?

tax repeal

Luckily since I wrote my last post they have repealed the 5 dollar tax on talking to a REAL person at the registry. Kudos to all those who stood up against that ridiculous tax

Monday, March 1, 2010

So you want to talk to a person?...that will be five dollars please

Read this

This is the beginning of the end I think. People keep laughing at me at work because I am convinced machines are going to start taking over the world, but here is some proof. They are going to start charging a five dollar fee to talk to a person at the RMV. A 5 DOLLAR FEE...ARE YOU KIDDING ME? They want to discourage people from going to the RMV branches, step one on the path to a completely online country...Two words for you.... fuck no.

As many of you know I always have a survival team rattling around in my head. Obviously it is made up of my friends and family, but it details what jobs I think people would be most good at. I am now taking all applications for my team... please include your name, viable skills and job you think you would excel at (including secluded housing, cooking, first aid, etc.) That way once the world is taken over by said machines(starting with the computers at the registry of motor vehicles)we will be prepared to carry on the human race.
