Because of shit like this.

“We are truly devastated, the entire family is devastated. You all want to know who that “big bad dude” was? That “big bad dude” was my twin brother. That “big bad dude” was a father. That “big bad dude” was a son. That “big bad dude” was enrolled at Tulsa Community College. … That “big bad dude” loved God. That “big bad dude” was at church singing with all his flaws every week. That “big bad dude”, that’s who he was.” – Tiffany Crutcher

I’ll try harder

Okay, I’m an old, white guy. A lot of people think I’m a Conservative Christian Right-wing Republican. Nothing could be further from the truth. I literally cringe when I hear anything that comes out of Donald Trump’s mouth.

I have donated to, and voted for, every democrat for president all the way back to Jimmy Carter. I very strongly support the Black Lives Matter movement. I very strongly support equal rights for the LGBTQ community. I very strongly believe that quality of life is more important than sanctity of life.

As to this silly little blog, I try, with mixed results, to appeal to conservatives through logic and satire. My thought being that liberals already agree with me, so I might as well try to reason with the reasonable opposition.

Clearly, thus far, I’ve failed. Sorry. I’ll try harder…

Knock it off, Colin Kaepernick

There’s some story about Colin Kaepernick not standing for the national anthem. There’s some debate about Colin Kaepernick’s right to not stand for the national anthem. There’s some debate about Colin Kaepernick’s not standing for the national anthem being disrespectful to veterans.

A couple of people have mumbled something about Colin Kaepernick being pissed-off about something, but no one seems to know what he’s pissed-off about.

The only thing we know for a fact is that whenever people talk about Colin Kaepernick, Donald Trump’s poll numbers go up.

Color heaven

She reigns the skies from dusk till end of day;
unfurled fury of freedom taking flight,
hailing the promise of the Almighty…
Proudest symbol of purest intent, pray;
stay in our hearts and souls forever bright,
hailing the promise of the Almighty…
Rule the winds of wretched fear undaunted;
bravely uncompromised by lesser wills,
and speak of peace, our ever-lasting dream…
Color heaven with bravery vaunted;
rise above all rivers, valleys and hills,
and speak of peace, our ever-lasting dream…
