Gays, gays ... gay marriage
April 4th, 2013 Kansas City Just some conservative thoughts ...
Okay, now everybody talks gay marriage. Which is fine by me. I supported it since years, you can look at my comments at Yahoo about that and I have also here in my own little space of the Internet spoken up about it. And yes, I'm a conservative and the reasons, I support gay marriage are conservative reasons. Conservative doesn't necessarily being a biblethumper. Dang, I read that book, I read the contemporary support materials (for example Flavius Josephus), I have rather a problem with someone thumping on the Bible without having all that done than I have with any gay. Which is funny, because I believe actually in God and I am sure, I am no gay, nor have I any tendency to become one. Just not my taste.
But I believe also in the Constitution. Or, to be exact, in the meaning of the Constitution. The prilgrims didn't go to America to be unfree, people didn't fight the English to be unfree, they fought to be free and equal. And that's the baisc idea. Everyone should be as free as he can without interferring with the freedom of others. And since gays don't interfere with my freedom nor with anybody else's, they should be free, equally in the view of law and, I have to add that to upset the biblethumpers a little, equal in the face of God. By all means, God, the Bible, none of them actually talk about gays. So ... lets fall back on the basics. The right to pursue happiness is granted and thus, the right for gays to marry, should be self-understanding as well.
Now the wind has changed. Of course, politicians on the left has talked about it since yeas. Talked, but done not much. Their biggest idea was to lift don't ask, don't tell. And harvest public opinion for DOMA. But in the end, Arizona is the first State officially allow a complete gay marriage, that is with all legal strings attached, as in any other marriage. Have fun gays, conservative Arizona moved once more faster than all those liberal vote catchers.
Now, why do I write about this subject, and why at this time, when finally things appear to look good?
Because that is the moment, things suddenly go bad. Because everybody relaxes under the impression, a fight is won. But there is a catch to it. Normally that'S the moment, some people who had nothing actually to do with it, come to bring in their profits. Democrats will tell you for years to
come, how much they did to give gays the right to marry.

John F. Kennedy refurbished a Civil Rights Act originally written by Republicans and brought to fall by Democrats in Supreme Court. Now he and Lyndon B. Johnson count in the Democratic legend as "The Democratic Grandfathers of Civil Rights"

No surprise there, they tell still after 150 years, what they did to give freedom to the African-American slaves - after fighting in the Civil War against the liberation, after forming the KKK, after committing the biggest act of terror that ever happened on American soil, the Freedmen Massacres, which costed the lives of more than 5000 freed black men and their allied Republicans and after fighting 7 out of 8 Civil Right Acts tooth and nail (and copying the 8th from a Republican they had stopped like 100 years ago). So, yes, the Democrats will tell you. Question is, how many of you will believe it? The African-Americas have bought the propaganda for 150 years, the question is, how long will the gays? Already now, Democrats tell you how good they are for your freedom, while knowing they have blocked not once but trice the original Bush supported extension of the hate crime laws, which included crimes against gays in the list of possible hate crimes in the first place (I ask you to look it up, you will find the original texts under "Civil Rights Acts" in the library of Congress). Still, they will tell you they and ACORN did all the work, while at the same time, they tried to stop the work.
Now, why do they do this? It's not, that Democrats have any religious reasons to block gay marriage or gay protection or Civil Rights for anybody. They have, according to themselves, no religous reasons at all. So why? Financial reasons? Well, they had financial reasons when they fought against the liberation of the slaves, true. But financial reasons to torpedo gay marriage? Serioulsy? That's hard to imagine. So, ther profit for them must be political. And yes, that makes sense. See, Republicans are somewhat stupid on a tactical level. They go, bleed and fight against those Democrats in a Civil War to give the slaves the freedom, then they turn around and walk away to the next problem and a few years later, the very same, in the meantime freed slaves tell them, they are all bad guys and they have to thank the Democrats for their freedom. Yeah, thank you! And now, qbout fifty years after a real great African-American leader, Dr. Martin Luther King, a Republican, a conservative who was forced by conservative reasons, to fight for freedom, finally the Democrats have a token African-American. He still hangs on the strings of Pelosi and Reid and their cronies and the influence of certain billionaires can be only overlooked if one closes the eyes very firm, but at least, he has the right skin color. I am pretty sure, it will take the Democrats not longer than maybe 150 more years to consider a gay presidential candidate, they are usually about 50 to 100 years behind the Republicans, they only thing, they were always fast in was to yell "it is all MINE" right after someone else did the work. Remember Obama's words about entrepreneurs "who didn't build that"? Quite a Democratic classic!
So, the fight for your rights is almost won. Gay marriage will come, if not on federal level, then on state level. A lot of real conservatives will check that problem as solved (not the biblethumpers though) and turn to other urgent problems and Obama and his cronies will yell what they all did - while complete gay marriage happens in Arizona. And that is the point, I recommend, you are very careful. because now the sharpers from the left are out to get you for 2016! And once more, they will stand there and yell "It's all MINE!!!!"

Michael Lee Lockhart
... and with a little delay, another serial made it into the serial killer collection. Michael Lee Lockhart, not so much interesting for his "achievements" but because his case appears as if he became a psychopath only after a serious head injury.

The Syracuse Dungeon Master
John T. Jamelske aka the Syracuse Dungeon Master has been added to our Serial Killer Collection. While not a seria killer but a serial rapist, Jamelske represents a similar psychopathology as some OCD type serial killers, for example Dahmer and therefore is some valuable object for studies.
