Seeing, as often as I do, the cracks in the Right-wing base I feel the need to speak out against the ideas of conservatism in terms of socialability and the subjegation of people’s righst. You probably have a clue that in terms of social-issues I’m rather left wing by comparison to many of my colleagues and friends. While I wholey endorse ideas that promise to protect people’s rights, especially those of choice, reason, logic, beliefs and expression, I see no alternative than to be liberal in terms of these choices and those of persons. As far as right-wing thought patterns are concerned I can see why one would believe they way they do, people like control and hate change (especially that of social change that really creates eyesores, I understand the plea-trust me) but I can’t agree on their views. I’m for gay-marriage, I’m pro-neutral on abortion (to each their own, as always), artistic expression should always be allowed as should the constituional rights of the people to express themselves in all manners. My friends, we can’t afford to belittle ourselves in the hopes of facing 21st century problems with backwards thinking. Mankind ill needs to literally look backwards in thinking and hope that old solutions work on new generations. The moment we start doing that we come undone in progressivism, which is the simple basis of the American experiment. Candidates like Michelle Bachmann, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, and Herman Cain would like to continue stranding the middle class while supporting the top one-percenters, they would like to please the masses of idiots who are afraid to face society with an open hand rather than the rod they proudly project. For those who think we’re free-we’re getting there. 235 years into the American experiment we haven’t really reached the peak of freedom because for years churches, and social dictorates have suppressed the majority with distractions of non-issues. 235 years of knocking at the door, we’re getting tired of those who keep Lady Liberty from answering that door. We have to be free, we have to break the bonds of distraction and join together to conclude this ridiculous dance around who and what we are as a people. “Live free or die trying”, our forefathers fought for this idea. They bled for the idea. 235 years we have been trying to find ourselves and now, in the depts of time, we have the opportune moment to strike at the heart of tyrants. Vote, speak out, think, and decide where you lay on the scale.
“Join, or die.”
BBN is back, bitches. I’m going to be meaner, leaner, and a beaner. Stick around, more posts are on their way. Also, look to iTunes for the upcoming Podcast, “BBR”
C’mon y’all, c’mon. Eat meh. Also, thanks to all the views I’ve been getting by not even updating I’m almost convinced to start writing again.
I’ve been hearing a lot about the ideas of revolution, I’ve been hearing a lot of people talking about how there needs to be a change. Violent rhetoric fills the local meeting places, slowly but surely people have started becoming more open to the idea that revolution is in the United States’ citizenry’s best interest. I beg to differ. It’s not that I’m a “loyalist,” unless by loyalist you mean a loyalist to democracy, to the republic.
But why do I say that “homegrown revolution is doomed from the start?” Because simply put, were you even to win such a revolution in these United States you forget the fundamental basic that comes out of every homegrown revolution: Tyranny.
Take a look at history! Since revolutions have been an idea, very few actually worked in the favor of those revolting. Sure, there was the United States’ break from England, and yes there were more but the United State’s revolution worked for only one soul purpose: The separation from a foreign power. Looking back at the homegrown revolutions, you’ll note that every single one of them failed, miserably. The Bolshevik revolution, the Cuban revolution, the French revolution(s), even the change in government (which is what a revolution is) in German during the early 1940s went from a good idea to Nazism. This is exactly why a revolution in the United States would fail, terribly.
A few bad apples can change the course of history, and that’s exactly what would happen. All revolutions start as a good thing, but at the end of the day the most charismatic and best speaking individual ends up as the sole power. True story. Hitler, Napoleon, Chavez, Lenin, Mao Zedong, Castro all come from revolutions that turned bad. If you don’t think it’s true then take a look at your local library, or even Google search how these men come to power. Violence begets violence, and if you start with a bang you will end with a whimper.
I’ve been meaning to post an interview for some time and when I finally got a chance for some quick words with Reverend Grand M.C. Dr. T-Rex, of Dr. T-Rex’s Bullshit Cannon, I couldn’t resist. I waited for him at the local park, when he arrived he was preceded by a train of oxen pulling a Grand Marquis fronted by a trail of Saharan tribal drummers with OGR:T announcing the Reverend’s arrival. He stepped out of the purple vehicle onto a carpet with emblazoned with a Mountain Dew logo. After the initial shock of the pomp and circumstance, I finally got a chance to see his holiness with mine eyes. He was wearing a leopard as a jacket, garnished with an anaconda bow-tie. His shoes had rhino-horns adorning his toes and his hair can only be described as a spiky-afronova. Life is different for the Doctor, very different.
After our picture session we started our discussions over politics, religion and his favorite subject: Star Wars. When push finally came to shove we got into the deeper questions-
“So, Reverend M.C., there’s a lot of talk that you’re planning on running for President of Zimbabwe, is there any truth to this?”
His voice was quiet, almost like the Bell Man from I Heart Huckabees.
“The only truth that there could be to this is that I am already in the running for the Presidency of sixteen nations. My brothers and sisters in Key West have already nominated me for King Poot Toot of Big Pine. I am most humbled by their assumptions of my prowess as a President.”
“That’s very kind of you, Mr. T-Rex. Isn’t it also true that you fought with the great Jesse Jackson for civil rights in Norway during the 1990s?”
“The only truth that there could be to this is that your perception of Norway is mistaken, it was in Norwegia-my friend.”
Among the Reverend’s accomplishments are starting the world’s first real-life Quidditch team in the Congo, helping the Serbs defeat their greatest enemy-the Atlantians, and winning the Mayorship of Cairo at the age of thirteen. He’s certainly helped improve the conditions of water, and food in Africa as of late and God bless his support of his people. His charity, Pimp Yo Stomach has helped several African schools get bread and bologny thanks to the efforts of the Reverend and Ludacris. There’s also heavy rumor that he’s running for United States Supreme Court Justice position, but we all know what he’d say to that. Sadly, this conversation was far too extensive for to fully embellish here at BBN. Read more about it next week on CNN.com for more about Reverend M.C. Dr. T-Rex, brother of Africa.

Tucson, Arizona tragedy ceremony.
The President stepped up and began his speech by shaking hands with the Dean of the University of Arizona (Tucson). Amongst the cheers, the president spoke first by recognizing those in the crowd.
“I have come here tonight as an American”
It began as both a somber speech and yet had a glimmer of hope from within the bowels of grief. Acknowledging that we can “pull through.” Obama spoke of Rep. Giffords by recognizing the timeless freedoms of free-speech and assembly, carrying the quote of Rep. Giffords by recalling it as “congress on the corner.” As the speech rolled on by calling upon those we lost, and who were injured. Well spoken, thoughtful and a beautiful speech throughout. Recognizing the heroism and framed darkness that those unfortunate few endured this past weekend.
As I sit in my parent’s living room, watching it on our television I can idly remember the sorrowful speeches in my lifetime. The speech that was given by former President Clinton in the wake of Timothy McVeigh’s explosion in Oklahoma, the State of the Union given by Mr. President Bush in 2001 and now I will be imprinted with the moment of Obama’s speech just four days after the desert city’s tragedy.
This speech will stay with those of us who observed it for the rest of our lives-this is not only monumental in terms of a spiritual uplifting but also with the state of our country’s morale. Thank you-Mr. Obama.
Sarah Palin’s use of the words “blood libel,” were not necessarily offensive to me (I’m not fully Hebrew, only Jew-ish) however the statement is as follows, I’ll then follow up with my response.
“If you don’t like their ideas, you’re free to propose better ideas. But, especially within hours of a tragedy unfolding, journalists and pundits should not manufacture a blood libel that serves only to incite the very hatred and violence they purport to condemn. That is reprehensible.”
