WHOLE BUNCH OF OPINIONS
WHOLE BUNCH OF OPINIONS
For Cranky Opinion Saturday
The following are the opinions of a cranky old man with little knowledge on the subjects opined. They are expressed with little thought and if they piss you off, get over it. Opposing opinions are expected; mean-spirited comments will be deleted, and as always, please, no name calling…that means you, you big stupid-head!
Opinions are not like assholes, because I’ve got lots of them!
Global Warming – Maybe, I don’t know. I am somewhat skeptical, but in the mean time the USA should stop burning stuff. Oh, and that goes for the other 95 percent of the world…STOP BURNING STUFF!
Woman’s rights – Yes!
Equal pay for equal work – First define equal work. Then pass another law that says you cannot discriminate pay based on gender. There are already three federal laws that say this, so go ahead and pass another, what can it hurt.
Gay rights – Yes
Gay marriage – OK, fine with me, but maybe we could call it something else to keep the Bible thumpers happy. How about “Gaymelding?” And partners can be called…mmm “Legal Partners” because some people get confused and since the bible says marriage is between a man and a woman and it doesn’t mention Gaymelding… problem solved! If you don’t like something, just call it something else and all is well with the world.
Immigration – If you are in this country illegally and you are caught breaking a law, you get sent back to your country of origin. If you sneak in and don’t break any other laws; get a job, and learn English, then you can stay…just behave and fly under the radar. If you want the rights of a citizen, come legally and follow procedures.
Abortion – If you don’t want a baby, don't get pregnant. If you get pregnant and change your mind before the baby is viable (able to survive if delivered), then abortion should be a legal if unpleasant choice. When abortion was illegal lots of people died or got really messed up in back alleys or crappy dark rooms, and that was bad.
Minimum Wage – As long as it is not higher than normal supply and demand would dictate, because you can’t really legislate the laws of economics. Remember wage and price freeze under Nixon? Oh Hell, go ahead and raise it, but if prices takeoff, be prepared to pass some more laws to take care of those who are living on a fixed income.
Black Lives Matter – Yes they do. Police should stop shooting people regardless of race if they are behaving themselves and are not an immediate threat. Citizens should learn to say “Yes sir and no sir” to people who have guns and authority, and they should try not to appear threatening. People with guns and authority that abuse that authority should have those guns and that authority taken away.
Offensive stuff – Flags, symbols, words, etc… ignore them. If they are in your face, punch someone.
Animal cruelty – STOP!
Bullying – Beat the snot out them.
Guns – Pass at test, pay a fee, and lock them away if not in use for hunting or target shooting. If you want to carry one around, pass a really difficult test.
Done! Social problems all solved, now let’s hear what the candidates have to say about the economy, education, crime, the environment and preventing assholes in other countries from pushing us around and fucking up the world.
The preceding opinions are from a cranky old man who needed a post and did not spend a whole lot of time trying to solve all the social problems in the country. They are probably not those of management…Mrs. Cranky.
