This Mutinous Cretin Does Not Speak For Conservatism

Usually, I blow off the "guilt by six degrees of separation" that the left loves to play against us, because I refuse to be cowed for the actions or people I do not know, nor have ever known. Besides, that tactic is disingenuous and lazy. But not this time. This asshole (warning: Lefty link) does not speak for me. This asshole does not speak for conservatism. This asshole needs to get HIS asshole forcibly widened for what he has done. And this asshole needs to be thrown down a hole and forgotten about. The fact that this guy is a child rapist is enough to convince me that he needs to be purged from humanity and civil society, and I would say nothing more about him. But, the fact that he is a member of a group that strikes me as mutinous is something that needs to be called out.

Mutinous? I think so. You see, the Oath Keepers, of which this Charles Dyer cat claims to be a member of, have this as their mission statement:

Below is our declaration of orders we will NOT obey because we will consider them unconstitutional (and thus unlawful) and immoral violations of the natural rights of the people. Such orders would be acts of war against the American people by their own government, and thus acts of treason. We will not make war against our own people. We will not commit treason. We will defend the Republic.


Umm...an organized and coordinated plan to refuse to follow orders? Last time I checked, this term came up in my UCMJ knowledge.

Mutiny? Yes. Mutiny.

Look pal, if you have issues about orders, there are avenues of redress. But an organized and coordinated plan based not on an abusive or insane Commanding Officer, but (apparently) solely on the fact you do not like who is in charge? NO. FUCKING. WAY. A long time ago, I took a fucking oath to serve the fucking Constitution, and this shit will not be tolerated. This shit will not be allowed anywhere near where I stand. And if I were still in the military, I would have pushed for any Oath Keeper to be arrested on the spot for being involved in an activity as such (besides, I would be arrested if I knew of such a plot and did nothing. But that's another issue for another time).

No. I will not tolerate mutiny or sedition. This Constitution and Republic have a way of cleansing itself without criminal fucking activity. Any asshole who takes the oath and then involves themselves in what appears to be a mutinous endeavor needs to be sent away, for they have violated their commitment and oath. They have violated the Republican (not the party, but the system of government) process, the process that can and will fix itself.  And they are of no use to those of us who wish to save this country by legal and electoral means.

Get the fuck out of my sight, Charles Dyer and the rest of you folks associated with him. And stay away from my military.

Another Senate Race To Watch

This time, it's the Republican Primary in Illinois, which pits Mark Kirk against a bunch of other people, including a Tea Party Endorsed candidate. Needless to say, I am not a fan of the RNC and GOP leadership, but the gay slurs being thrown around by one of his opponents is a disgrace.

Look, oppose Kirk for his voting record. Oppose Kirk for his stance on issues. Oppose Kirk just because. But gay baiting? Fuck. And. No. The people doing that need to be jackhammered by a steer so deep that their ears get jealous.

So fuck off, gay baiters. And come up with a better reason to oppose a guy.

 

***NOTE: I ORIGINALLY THOUGHT THE TEA PARTY GUY WAS THE ONE MAKING THE GAY SLURS. BUT  I WAS WRONG. SOME OTHER GUY IS DOING THE SLUR STUFF. REGARDLESS OF WHO SPREADS THE RUMORS, WE SHOULD LEAVE SOMEBODY'S CHOICE OF (LEGAL, NO CHRIS HANSEN PAYS YOU A VISIT TYPE) GENITAL GRATIFICATION OUT OF OUR VOTING PATTERNS ***

What is it with Russia and space lately?

In a move sure to have PETA up in arms, the Russians are contemplating sending monkeys to Mars.

You can't make this shit up.

“We have plans to return to space,” said Zurab Mikvabia, director of the Institute of Experimental Pathology and Therapy in Georgia which supplied apes for the programme in the 1980s.

The Institute is in preliminary talks with Russia's Cosmonautics Academy about preparing monkeys for a simulated Mars mission that could lay the groundwork for sending an ape to the Red Planet, he said.

Such an initiative would build on Mars-500, a joint Russian-European project that saw six human volunteers confined in a capsule in Moscow for 120 days earlier this year to simulate a Mars mission.

Mr Mikvabia said: "Earlier this programme was aimed at sending cosmonauts, people (to Mars).

"But given the length of the flight to Mars, and given the cosmic rays for which we don't have adequate protection over such a long trip, discussions have focused recently on sending an ape instead of a person."
