I am so angry right now that I probably should wait to write this until I've cooled off some, but I'm just too disgusted and angry. That's right: disgusted. The anger just gives the disgust a frisson of adrenaline that could drive my blood pressure into the stratosphere, but so what?

It concerns the uproar over Indiana's new law ensuring that all groups of whatever kind shall be treated equally before the law, and barring the establishment of "protected classes" who will be treated more favorably by the law than non-protected classes. People -- including, he should be deeply ashamed of himself, writer Stephen King -- are up in arms about it. Why? Because it reinforces the First Amendment to the US Constitution, which reads:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

What all of you idiots want is to establish a precedent by which any groups at all, any whatsoever at all, can demand that it become a protected class, treated so by the way. None of you seem to realize that that would open the door to the classification of all the groups you don't like -- or claim now you don't like -- as legally [protected, with legal claims superior to any made by those who are not so protected. What is now may not be tomorrow, and almost certainly will not be twenty-five years from now. How would you like to wake up and find that the Ku Klux Klan,, the Nazi Party, the Aryan Supremacists, and their ilk are "protected classes," with legal rights taking precedence over those of non-protected groups -- including yours? You want to live in an America like that? I sure as hell don't!

You people are disgusting! You want to throw out the First Amendment, which for 225 years has protected your and all other American citizens' right to worship as you will, to freely discuss political and other protected categories of speech, to assemble peaceably, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. What you want will throw out the First Amendment and replace it with a floating "living" collection of precedents by which any group of Americans at all can become a "protected class" who are above the law that applies to all those not so protected. Alliances shift, times change, political trends wave in the wind and fly off like banshees into the sunset as newer trends force their way in. Which could turn this country into the Fourth Reich, the Aryan Fortress, the Sons of Stalin, or whatever other horrible dictatorship can worm its way in to our country. You think it isn't possible? Give any one of such groups a foot in the door and, if they are savvy, they can take over and run this country to suit their purposes.

Go ahead and declare I'm guilty of a "hate crime" for writing this. Your problem is that you have forgotten there are other states of mind besides "hate" and (what passes for a heartless, wishy-washy sort of) "love" (that isn't love at all. You've forgotten that there are other states of mind: disgust, shame. outrage, righteous wrath (not self-righteous, hypocritical, ego-driven tantrums), and true horror. Otherwise you'd recognize what I have written here as an outpouring of sheer disgust over your utterly stupid, childish, tyrannous demands that there be groups in this country who shall receive a protected status guaranteeing that their rights take precedence over anyone else's -- you idiot dumbshits! How dare you? How dare you! Yes, you'll be howling that I should be burned at the stake for saying such things to you, you delicate, weak-kneed, lily-livered fools! Better that fate for me, though, than to live in the fascist, retarded failure of what was once a free country, inhabited by free men and women who were willing to risk their everything to protect their country, their Constitution, their people, and their descendants' future in a free land. And may you enjoy the hell you would wish on us all.

I must confess, I don't know much about this new Indiana law. But my former GF has been burning up her Facebook account about it; going by that alone, you'd think it's the worst atrocity since Tamerlane invaded Central Asia. Personally, I'm starting to get sick of it; there is such thing a MauMauing an issue too much.

Yes. That's one of the things I loathe most about these "liberal" uproars over nothing much: that they go on and on and ON until the whole world is utterly sick and tired of it, even some of the "liberals" who started the uproar. I think many of those "liberals" love collecting Causes the way that women in the 1900s loved collecting antimacassars, lithographs, and other things to fill up the empty spaces in their souls and lives. I suggest they try cement, instead. {sour}

We are more likely to become another Islamic country or taken over by Chinese plants. The USA hasn't been free since the 60s. Citizens, those who are ACTUALLY born here, and ESPECIALLY those of us who have been here since Colonial times, and pre-Columbus, don't matter at all. We are non-entities.

Maybe not. There are some urgent signs that civilizstion is about to collapse. If so, a vast percentage of people will die everywhere for lack of medical care and the failure of food distribution networks, not to mention the failure of water distribution systems and electrical delivery systems. Like, 99.98%. If so, mordern political systems will become so much dust in the wind, and thank G-d for it.
