blow it out your ass

If I thought you were fucking SERIOUS, I might join. Yeah, it sounds good, but I'll guarantee that your idea of "freedom" is pretty damned selective, and not much like mine.

Let's make it clear to those who seek to take away our freedoms that they are on the wrong side of the law... the wrong side of core American values... and the wrong side of history. Take the pledge now and stand strong in support of freedom.

Yeah. Except for anti-smoking laws, sexual harassment bullshit, gun-control idiocy, suing over "God" in the pledge of allegiance, tearing down Christmas manger scenes, forbidding the Ten Commandments, stamping out the new Hardee's gut-buster burger, supporting handicapped militancy, Affirmative Action, environmental whackwittery, greedy lawyers, a huge government poking a finger into more parts of your life than a proctologist ever reaches and never blinking an eye about THAT kind of batshit. Spare me from your balled fists and gimlet eyes now after you've not only ALLOWED but ACTIVELY SUPPORTED such crap in the past.

Freedom means a lot more than protecting yourself from what you THINK George Bush might do somewhere down the road. You act as if we're free NOW, which we aren't. Most people don't even UNDERSTAND the concept of freedom anymore, thanks in large measure to the ACLU. You assholes blew your chance to be serious about FREEDOM a long time ago.

Don't get self-righteous with me now.


And, therein lies the problem. Everyone's idea of 'freedom' is different. For instance, MY idea of freedom is my right to smoke, outside, in a public place without harrassment. The non-smoker, of course, feels that HIS idea of freedom is to not have to be "subjected" to my second-hand smoke (even though it IS outside), but refuses to do one, simple thing like courteously asking me to move...or move himself. What's he do? Why he complains, starts a social 'movement' to create yet another law or a regulation or rule, thereby creating more "freedom" for himself.. But restricting mine.
I, for one, am SO fucking sick and tired of laws and regulations that are created to benefit one person or group of people at the expense of another.

ACLU, KKK, NAACP,UAW, and a few others that I can't remember make me wish we were back in the old west days. Their needs to be an open season on lawyers.

Glenn Reynolds recommended the ACLU initiative yesterday and now I'm posting against Reynolds:
