The Liberals and Diversity



First off, let's define what we mean by diversity. According to Merriam-Webster, “diversity” is the inclusion of different types of people (such as people of different races and cultures) in a group or organization – it also includes a “diversity” of opinion.

Now, with that definition in mind, let's see how the liberals use it in trying to further their political agenda.

It seems that the Democrats (a/k/a liberals) think that “diversity” is the “be all and end all” that should happen in our society, not the intelligence, the work ethic, or the experience of the person, but whether or not he/she fits the “diversity” parameter that they constantly use in what they think is good for our society. According to the liberals, they want us to look different but think the same. You see this in college campuses around the country. Many colleges brag about how diverse they are, but the the faculties are mainly staffed by an overwhelming majority of liberals who contribute mainly to the Democrat Party, no “diversity” there. Also, many of these colleges give preference to enrolling students with “diversity” in mind, rather than accepting prospective applicants on the sole basis of their academic credentials.

Giving preference to one group over another, to me, is un-American and contrary to the principles set forth by our Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. Shouldn't everyone be judged as an individual and not as part of a group? That doesn't mean we shouldn't encourage people from some group from gaining credentials and experience to be able to compete for admission to a school or college, but by blatantly discriminating in favor of a person from a certain group, that should be considered unfair, especially to the other person being denied even though better qualified.

Our founding fathers, in their eminent wisdom, have written that everyone should have the “opportunity” to better themselves, not the “guarantee” of success. That's what they stated in our Declaration of Independence that we, as citizens, are “endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness” - as you can see they did not say the “guarantee” of happiness (or in other words, success), because when you give something to someone you have to take something from somebody else. That's what seems to happen when someone gets accepted (because of “diversity”) for a slot in a college admission over someone who doesn't fall into that “diversity” category. That is called “reverse discrimination” and should not be tolerated.

The “diversity” goal is also used in the business world as the government has set up rules and procedures that authorize companies and businesses to hire people, not on the basis of merit for performing the job, but on the basis of their ethnicity, race, or gender. Should the government be the arbiter as to who some business should (or must) hire or should that be left to the business itself? Liberals, in the main believe that the government should get involved, whereas the Conservatives, in the main, say the government should stay out. Yes, there may be some who might discriminate on the basis of ethnicity, race, and gender, but most businesses are in business to make a profit so they will hire the person who will be the most productive for their business and will add to the bottom line (a/k/a profit).

So, the idea that“diversity” can be the “be all and end all” of how we run our lives, it can work in ways that bring more problems to society than in solving the problems of society. Forcing people to do or not to do certain things, in the name of “diversity” is never the way to go. Educating the people to do the right thing might take some more effort than passing a law, but in the long run it will create less animosity among the citizens who think that they are being discriminated against in the name of “diversity”.

The Road to a Healthy Existance is Prevention


Since the Civil War our country has never been in a more precarious situation
than today, because a new form of protest has evolved out of a rambunctious
display of vitriol by persons who do not respect nor accept the outcome of a
constitutionally won presidential election.

It has left an open wound they won't allow to heal, by picking on the scab and
sucking out the blood at every attempt the new administration is putting forth
to cure the ills left by the previous one, and utilizing every unsterilized
means available, with dirty hands, to infect and cripple it in its endeavor.

Although there was a possible Russian symptom, it has proven to have been
misdiagnosed and not applicable in examination and fruitless to continue to
pursue it, distracting the government from more important things needing
attention for the well being of its citizenry. Jobs, lowering taxes, the
health of the economy and the safety of the nation from the contagious
terror disease that's beginning to spread like the plague, throughout
the world.

A repeat of history is hard to be believed at this time and most of us living
today will never know, but even Abraham Lincoln too, was once the most
hated man in the land.

Homosexuality: A Normal or Abnormal Lifestyle?


Whichever way you answer that question, you will be vilified by either support group. If you say “normal”, you will be accused of undermining eons of traditions dating back to the origins of man and woman. If you say “abnormal”, you will be labeled a bigot, homophobe, Fascist etc. Either way, a person voicing his/her opinion, that person will be “walking on hot coals” in trying to voice their views on this highly volatile, emotionally charged subject. To begin a discussion, let's define the word “Abnormal”. Merriam-Webster defines it as, “not normal, average, typical or usual, deviating from a standard”.

As human beings, we can “love” anyone we want to. As a heterosexual, I can see where people can love someone of the same sex, mainly as it concerns fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, other family members and close friends. It is “normal” to show affection in those cases, but the difference between that “love” and homosexuality is the part about sex. That is the part that homosexuals are trying to convince others that “gay sex” is normal, especially when it comes to same sex marriage.

It seems that the momentum over the past few years has shifted to the LGBT community as the media, academia, and Hollywood have painted homosexuality as a normal lifestyle that is comparable to a “straight” lifestyle. It seems that tolerance for opposing views on this subject is visibly lacking on both sides, especially the LGBT side as they organize against opponents by bringing lawsuits, asking opponents to be fired, and by boycotting businesses.

Which ever side you support, we should not oppress the other side as we, in the U.S.A., are a free people who have the right to have an opinion, free from censorship and violence.

Most of the people who claim that homosexuality is NOT a normal lifestyle, generally come to that conclusion mostly out of a profound religious teaching. Since the beginning of recorded history, most religions and cultures have NOT recognized homosexuality as being a moral precept. Only during the past 20 or 30 years has the problem been brought to the forefront. Since the Civil Rights movement, which began in the 1960's, and gained momentum, the LGBT community has latched on as another aggrieved party. Even though it has been estimated that the gay community represents only about 3% of the population, they are well motivated and well funded and have wide support in the liberal sector of the Democrat Party, the main stream media, and the left-leaning academics, both teachers and professors. This support has given momentum to the gays in their cause for “special” treatment. The question most people who oppose the gay lifestyle as “normal”, say that the gay community should not get any special treatment and that they should be treated the same as any other citizen with all the protections guaranteed by the Constitution.

Is it “normal” for a man to have “sex” with another man (anal and/or oral), and the same with females with other females? Let's discuss the situation.

If you believe in a God or some other dynamic in our universe, do you believe human beings have been created in a certain and distinct way? Were humans, man and woman, created to cause a certain happening? The human race can only survive by a man and woman procreating to have an offspring. The people in a homosexual relationship cannot procreate (unless through surrogates or artificial insemination), but they can still love one another. To get technical, the anal orifice in a man was made for “elimination”, not “ingestion”. To argue otherwise, one would argue that that procedure, in sexual terms, was “normal”. In the case of female homosexuals, they don't have that problem, and the dangers that come from engaging in that lifestyle (ex: STD's, AIDS, and rectal problems) generally is not a concern to them, therefore the lesbian life expectancy is about 10 years greater than their male counterpart.

So taking all that into consideration, and the way our bodies have been formed and created, it would be quite a stretch to reasonably conclude that the homosexual lifestyle is “normal” and should be made comparable to the heterosexual lifestyle.

The question then arises about whether the gay lifestyle is just another alternative lifestyle, that they shall be given all the benefits that straight couples have, especially when it comes to same sex marriage.

Due to the power of the gay lobby, who are very well financed and emotionally organized, they have convinced quite a few states to recognize gay marriage, and more seem to be on the verge of following suit. A lot of people who do not agree with the gay community, are cowed and threatened by the militant gays. Cries of “homophobia” and “bigot” ring out if you question their ideas or come out against the validity of their lifestyle, which they are trying to change as being “normal”. The gays who are always preaching tolerance, become very intolerant when you disagree with them. In that case, tolerance has a tendency to breed intolerance.

Nobody knows what will eventually occur in the future, but it will be contentious to say the least, on both sides.

MORT’s meanderings

Attention: People with their heads screwed on straight.
Can you take your eyes & ears off the CNN’s and the Democrap Obstructionists, TrumpHaters & ForeverResistors like Chuck Schumer and Maxine Waters and all the committed Leftist talking heads on the tube, for just a moment?  Can you do that?
Is it really Earth-shaking when Pres. Trump says he is honored to be meeting with the Russian thug ‘President’?  Can we get past this ‘by-play’ by our President, who is the greatest negotiator of all time and realize that he is way smarter at that game than either the heads of any of the foreign countries around the Globe or certainly, the so-called leaders of today’s Democrat Party?
Would you really  rather have Hillary, Sanders or Biden occupying the Oval Office in the White House?  C’mon . . lets’ get serious!
