Where Are We Going and Why Are We in this Hand Basket?

transgender

transgenderI’m so old I remember the times where a man who expressed a desire to chop off his penis was something that invoked a mixture of sympathy and horror, for only a misfire in the brain could cause such a desire to manifest. I remember when we would have reached out to such a person and offered him the help he needed, as we do for anyone else who suffers from mental illness. Now, to say such a thing is anything but perfectly normal is “hateful” and “bigoted”.

This forced acceptance of “gender fluidity” has reached a point of lunacy now where it can no longer be ignored. While no one will convince me a person wanting to exchange his genitals is “normal”, if such a person is an adult and can find a doctor willing to indulge instead of treat him, fine. I have no interest in involving myself in that mess as long as my tax dollars aren’t funding it. Where I do involve myself, and indeed where we should all be getting involved, is when we’re seeing this nonsense affecting our children.

It’s happening all over; parents with a clear agenda they’ve pushed on minds too young to comprehend what’s happening claim their “transgender” children are entitled to use the restrooms and belong to the sports teams of the gender they “identify” with instead of the one they actually are. The latest state to promote the acceptance of boys using the little girls’ room because they say they “identify as female” is California.

Proponents claim this is about “rights” and “tolerance”, yet their definition of these concepts is so flawed, so narrow, that it would be laughable were it not so dangerous. My daughter has the right to walk into a ladies room secure in the knowledge there will be no boys in there, even if these boys like to wear dresses and curse their penises. My son has the right to use a locker room without worrying there’s a girl in there watching him undress, even if that girl says she wishes she had matching equipment. Kids who’ve been coached by adults with an agenda to believe they’re “transgendered” no more have the right to claim exclusivity with the opposite gender than I do to claim I’m the president and expect to take up residence in the White House. Saying something is so doesn’t make it true. A boy announcing he’s a girl doesn’t make it so.

The potential for abuse here is so obvious, even a leftist could see it. How many teenage boys will “identify as girls” in order to be free as they please to waltz into the girls’ locker room where girls are changing clothes, showering, and using the bathroom? How many girls will do the same? The simple fact is, these children – regardless of whether their gender confusion is legitimate – have no concept of the magnitude of identifying as “transgendered” and instead of encouraging it, parents should be stepping in and getting these children the help they need, not forcing everyone else’s kids to be placed in unacceptable situations.

I often say that I find a new reason every single day my children will never set foot in public school. This is certainly one of those reasons. While my kids are not subjected to this far left nonsense, I still get to fund it with my tax dollars in addition to the fortune I shell out in private school tuition. This is wrong. If I’m old enough to remember the days when “gender fluidity” wasn’t mainstream, I’m definitely old enough to remember when education was about reading, writing, history, and critical thinking and not a social experiment. We’ve abandoned that now in favor of this slouch toward Gomorrah. Enough is enough.

WI Football Dance Off

football dance off

I admit, being a Pac 10 (now 12) fan the only time I usually see the Wisconsin team is during the Rose Bowl. Still, there’s nothing like a watching a team take its standard practice and turn it into something fun. You don’t have to like the Badgers or even football to enjoy this short dance off between teammates.

What I Find Offensive — Socialism

marxists

Allow me to ventilate something that’s on my chest and not worry about leftists’ precious feelings.

Racism, sexism, bigotry, homophobia, Islamophobia, misogyny and bronyism — all abhorrent in their various manifestations. (I won’t lie, I find My Little Ponies strangely erotic.) Yet none of these stupid ideas by themselves killed anyone. They were, well, stupid ideas.

Socialism as some laudable political system that is going to save us all from… work? Dumb meets deadly. And death, except when it comes to kittens and marmosets, is something I find extremely offensive.

It’s true that racism has inspired hateful bigotry and full grown men running around in white sheets and pointy hats. And no, not just Democrats. Well, mostly Democrats, but I digress.

But properly constrained within an economic system that protects property rights, and away from depraved mustached guys with Panzer tanks, then racism is a despicable ideology that leads to idiotic name-calling and not much else. It’s a fetish that grows within the vile petri dish of misguided redneck outrage, and in its most virulent form, not many places outside of that.

And that’s what racism has become in modern America in the majority of cases: a grievance of people who don’t like their feelings hurt, and not a justification for real oppression. Thank goodness all races can become super-rich millionaires simply by whacking little sticks with little balls (but enough about my sex life).

I hate racists and actual racism. There I said it. But I also hate when people misuse the charged emotions and hurt feelings the epithet “racist” provokes to advance an ulterior motive — say, socialism.

Oh, I’m sorry. Am I allowed to say “socialism”? Or has that become one of those unmentionable ‘isms’? We could switch to progressivism, if you’d prefer. That’s the watered-down Kool-aid form, the Flavor Aid of socialism, if you will. (I’m sorry if you found that remark racist. Alright, no I’m not.)

Socialism is pretty much the opposite of everything America stands for. Individual rights for all kinds of people — blacks, whites, Latinos, dwarves, midget dwarves, little people, and even freaks like me. Private property, so that other people (whether they call themselves the IRS or not) can’t steal your bling. Limited government, because who the hell is in favor of unlimited government? That’s right, progressives.

Ask a progressive when the government has gone too far and she’s likely to tell you that it stops at her bedroom. Or the womb. Except if it’s springing for a case of Magnums and a bottle of Fire & Ice lubrigel — then it’s party on!

What progressives don’t get is that in order to buy those Democrat pleasure packs (which will be handed out by Sandra Fluke at the next convention) ‘government’ had to slink into someone’s bedroom like a sexy Anne Hathaway in full black leather bodysuit and knee-high glossy stilettos to slip someone’s wallet out of his side dresser drawer.

Ironically, as he dreamt about Anne Hathaway.

Anyway, the point is there is nothing sacred to a socialist government, and once you give up your economic freedom, pretty much everything else follows. You can complain all you want about Bible thumpers as you’re working on the state farm for vodka and white bread rations, but it’s likely to get you more blank stares than Honey Boo Boo accepting a Grammy for her song about Kim Kardashian. Because the tike’s belt doesn’t match her boots, the little ignoramus.

Disagreeing with a Democrat president who happens to be black is not racist. It may show an affinity for “hate facts,” but it doesn’t mean you think the white race is superior to the black race (or vice versa). It certainly isn’t offensive to point out President Obama has a suspect history of economic failure that just happens to benefit the Democrat Party. Purely by coincidence, one can be sure.

But socialism? There’s a seedy backstory to that ideology that would make even Sasha Grey blush. So we’re not supposed to talk about it, because it’s noble and stuff — at least that’s what my professors kept telling me. We’re talking poverty, and mass murder, and misery, and really bad jokes. (If I hear one more “In Russia bad joke make you” kind of joke, I’m going to beat someone’s groin area with a wiffle-ball bat. There I go again.)

The phony taking offense at anyone who doesn’t adhere to the Democrat Party line, crying racism, and sexism, and bigotry like a five-year-old with a PC version of Tourette’s syndrome, just doesn’t cut the mustard anymore. Some conservatives are on to the left’s Frankfurt School games (and no, that’s not the biennial culinary Olympics for hot dog chefs).

I’ll see your racism, and raise you an ‘ism’ — socialism. And since more than half of Democrats think it’s pretty keen, it’s legitimate to drag the hundred million skeletons out of the socialist closet. One last time. Because it’s politically useful.

The dead bodies, the broke economies, the starvation, the ruin, the shattered lives, the debt piled onto my kids’ backs, their limited futures, the ignorance of history, the blithe insistence that naysayers don’t get it — I find that all pretty offensive. And, as Greg Gutfeld might say, if you don’t agree — that probably makes you a socialist.

The United Penn States of America

Penn State University was the deserving recipient of unprecedented sanctions by the NCAA in response to the child sexual molestation scandal caused by former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.  The school was fined $60 million, the football program’s scholarships were cut for four years, a four-year postseason ban was imposed, and the team was forced to vacate all wins from 1998-2011.  Vacating those wins means that former head coach Joe Paterno, once a legend in his own time, posthumously relinquishes the title of winningest coach in major college football history.

Sandusky was found by a grand jury to be guilty on 45 out of 48 counts of sexual abuse dating from 1994 to 2009.  School officials at the highest levels were charged with perjury, suspended, or dismissed for the cover up. Paterno was fired.  Under pressure, university president Graham Spanier resigned.

It was found that Spanier and Paterno, as well as athletic director Tim Curley and school vice president Gary Schultz, knew of Sandusky’s child abuse as early as 1998, and failed to notify the proper authorities.   By doing so, the four men failed for over a decade to protect children from a sexual predator.

It has been often said that Joe Paterno was once a real straight shooter among college football’s elite coaches.  The multiple crimes and following punishments demonstrate what happens when focus on original goals is lost, then replaced by a philosophy of self-preservation at all costs.  Paterno had become unapproachable, almost god-like.

The United States is being run in a fashion similar to that of the Penn State football team.  There is an individual in the head position who’s deemed by some to be almost god-like and unapproachable.  The people are being continuously abused because those in power love their positions so dearly they’re willing to adopt a philosophy of self-preservation at all costs.  Those in charge are taking no action to stop the abuse.

The consequence of this inaction will be that soon America’s self-imagined, self-appointed monarchs will no longer be able to dictate outcomes to the tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearning to breathe free.

The people of United States of America will no longer tolerate the abuses of the current administration.  They will no longer suffer insufferable Representatives in Congress or in the Senate.  It makes little difference whether the insufferable ones are complicit, intimidated into remaining silent or out of fear, simply unwilling to act.  The American people will choose to separate themselves from the injustices, the intolerance, the corruption, the abuses, the despotism, the evil.

At Penn State University the motto “Success With Honor” became: “You’re fired” “You’re guilty” or “I quit”.

The reality Penn State now faces provides the rest of America with a microcosm.  It demonstrates in universally relatable ways that yes, absolute power corrupts absolutely.  Still.  When the corruption finally comes to light, even those who were thought unassailable pay the price.

In the White House, “Hope and change” has become “No, you didn’t”.

For American voters, the level of corruption, injustice, intolerance, the abuses, the despotism, the evil are coming to light.  Over the next few months, more will be revealed.

The once unassailable, those considered unapproachable, even the almost god-like will pay.  Sooner or later, whether it is being forced to resign in disgrace, being rejected by the masses or suddenly facing their Creator at the moment of their last breath.

Everybody has to pay.

#JoePa 1926 – 2012 | Uncle Sam 1776 – ?

What in the world could that headline possibly mean?

Some of my best thinking occurs in the shower (no, but we’ll get to that later) and when I saw the text alert that Joe Paterno had passed away from complications of lung cancer I was heading to the shower this morning, and naturally started thinking about the man and his legacy.  I began to search for someone to compare him to and this is what I came up with.

Photo: Wikipedia

Joe Paterno was born in 1926, 3 years before the Great Depression.  He was of my father’s generation.  The Generation Tom Brokaw dubbed ‘The Greatest Generation’.  Men who lived through childhood not really understanding the deprivation of their youth but having a great impression made upon them by it.  Men who came of age when the entire world was engaged in a clearly defined struggle of Good vs. Evil in World War II.  Many if not most men of that age served and many died in the Armed Forces of the United States all over the planet.  The survivors returned from war and set about living their lives, having children… many children, in fact, they spawned the largest generation in human history, The Baby Boom. My generation.

Image: Wikipedia

‘Uncle Sam’ wasn’t really ‘born’. He’s a creation. It is what Uncle Sam represents that I wish to discuss: the United States of America.  The country does have a ‘birthday': July 4, 1776.  On or about that date 56 men, many of them the richest & most politically powerful men from their respective areas of the country signed the Declaration of Independence in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  With it they started a war with King George III, ruler of England, the most powerful man in the world. They were his subjects and now they had chosen to openly rebel against his rule.  They were massive underdogs.  England had the most powerful armed forces on earth.  These wealthiest, most powerful men in the country knew that they had collectively signed their own death warrants.  The quote  by Ben Franklin  ‘We must, indeed, all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately’ says it all.  Their only option was Victory which through long years and much struggle they achieved.  It was never a sure thing.

The last line of the Declaration of Independence is:

‘And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,

we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.’

‘Our Sacred Honor’ those words wouldn’t probably be used today let alone ‘divine Providence’.  They must violate someone, somewhere’s ‘right’ to not have to think of or even hear about God, or the ‘Sacred’ or Honor.  Those are bygone words of bygone eras.  My father’s era and the ones before it.

Under no circumstances am I claiming that my father nor any man of his generation or prior generations was perfect.  But I’ll be happy to debate anyone if the subject is the ‘Honor’ of that generation in general.  I’ll further be happy to juxtapose that generations Honor against the Honor or lack thereof of my generation.  Radio Talk Show Host Dennis Prager says that The Greatest Generation gave birth to The Stupidest Generation.  I’m in it and I strive to not be ‘of’ it, but I agree.

We are the Selfish Generation.  The generation that is very much concerned about Our Rights, with little to no corresponding concern about Our Responsibilities (except, of course, our responsibilities to Mother Earth [please Recycle]).  That wouldn’t necessarily be a bad thing if the rights we were concerned about were the same ones the Founders and the Framers (of the Constitution) outlined, but we’re less concerned with those than the invisible ones that really ‘bright’ lawyers have ‘found’ in the ‘emanations and penumbras’ of the Framers words. Of course those imagined rights spawn other ones as well and what looks like an increase in our rights is actually a diminishment of our liberty.

There is a scene in ‘The Godfather’ where Vito Corleone is negotiating with the ruthless drug dealer Virgil Sollozzo about where Sollozzo will ply his trade and if the Corleone Family will protect his operation. At the close of the negotiation Sonny Corleone, Vito’s Eldest son interrupts, as he declines the deal Vito says, ‘I have a sentimental weakness for my children and I spoil them as you can see, they talk when they should listen.’

We want what we want and we want it now!  That is the fault of my father’s generation.  Those men and women who came up in the deprivation of The Depression didn’t want to visit that upon their children.  They built a great nation.  They built a booming economy in large part in response to the fact that they kept having kids.  Hungry children are great motivators to men of character and honor; they do not let them continue to go hungry and they did not run away from their responsibility. They invented Slinkys and Slip ‘n Slides to amuse their children and profit from the needs of other men to amuse theirs.  They built jet airplanes and rockets that landed man on the moon and safely returned him to earth with only slide rulers, paper and pencil and computers on board the spacecraft with less computing power than the iPhone.  These were the men I grew up with and spent my teenage years in particular in close contact with on long road trips.  My father died at the end of my teens, but I knew what men of honor and character looked like and as I looked for other role models for my life I looked for those men: Men like Joe Paterno.

Paterno was head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions (not ‘Nittaly‘…dope) for 46 years, he was a coach at the school for 61 years,  he won more games than any other Division I Football Coach in the history of the NCAA.  He won two national championships. He didn’t demand a multi-million dollar salary like so many other college coaches. He lived in the same home for 50 years.  He imbued his players with morals and ethics, Penn State was a solid program.  ‘Joe Pa’, as he was known, was ‘Old School’.  And it worked.

You can spend generations building your reputation and legacy only to have it come crashing down in a moment like a poorly constructed brick wall in an earthquake.  That too is the story of Joe Paterno.  Allegations surfaced of one of his assistant coaches sexually assaulting young boys as witnessed by another assistant and reported to Paterno himself.  It’s further alleged that all this ‘honorable man’ apparently did was tell his bosses at Penn State.  Nothing more…

This is where I’m virtually certain Joe Pa and the men who were friends with my father and my father himself differ.  There would have been blood had this happened to one of their children or to anyone’s child at the hands of any man that they knew or could even get their hands on.  Did this kind of thing happen involving men of that generation, obviously, yes; but not to my knowledge with anyone I knew or even heard of, and nothing has ‘surfaced’ like a deep dark secret from ‘The Black Lagoon’ since.

How does something like this happen?  How does a man whose public persona was so deeply identified with morals, ethics and character have such a massive blind spot and deep dark secret?  How could he not have known that this would eventually come to light?  And finally why didn’t he drag Jerry Sandusky by his hair to the police?

We’ll never know.

The cracks in the will started to appear almost immediately at the foundation of the country.  You may have heard of The Federalist Papers, a series of essays written by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton and John Jay and published in New York newspapers to explain the reasoning behind and promote the Ratification of The Constitution; There are also The Anti-Federalist Papers, a collection of writings and speeches by other Framers who were afraid of the Consolidation of Power in a Central Gov’t and argued Against Ratification of the Constitution without a Bill of Rights for the People and their States.

That battle has never ended.  There has never been a cease fire.  No treaty has been signed.  There is an on-going struggle for the control and the very soul of this nation.

One side is constantly chipping away at the foundations seeking to ‘Bring it all Down, Man‘ so that they can build something new.

Oh, I know the country was founded with the ‘Original Sin’ of Slavery… (Interesting how people who are anti-religion will attempt to use religious language to bolster their point of view), and how Slaves were only counted as 3/5 of a human being in the Census (revealing their lack of knowledge of how crucial this was to the North to bring about the end of slavery [It was about Seats in the House of Representatives, not their Humanity or Lack Thereof]) and this means that it must be torn down and ‘We’ will build something new, and ‘better’. ‘We’ will build something ‘Fairer’ and more ‘Humane’.  Only we don’t ever really know who this ‘we‘ is or what exactly they would build.

The other side is the stupid and lazy side.  It’s my father and his generation’s side and in large part my generation’s as well.

This is the side that indulges its children’s childish impulses to throw temper tantrums in the street, impinge on other citizen’s rights, destroy their property and call them ‘protests’.  It’s the side that believes voting is enough while the other side is organizing, consolidating power, fund raising and campaigning.

We are on the side that allowed the takeover of most powerful machine for the dissemination of information, ideas, morals, culture and dreams in the history of mankind to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of our enemy without them firing a shot. Do you think Bob Hope could get a show on tv today?  To go that one better we feed the machine with our dollar at a declining but still astounding rate as they fill our minds and especially our childrens minds with morals and beliefs that are entirely counter to our own.   We can hardly wait to come home and plop down in front of the box to get indoctrinated every night because we’re just so worn our from working all day to earn money that ‘they’ take about 50% of.  Which means they’re taking 50% of your life since you’re expending the precious finite resource of your time on earth to earn that money.

We’re the ‘Fiscal Conservatives’ who only care about the finances of the country, as if you deigning to tell the representatives in government how to spend the money and what to spend it on isn’t a Moral discussion.

We’re the ‘Moral Majority’, the ‘Silent Majority’, the ‘Tea Party’ who, filled with Moral Indignation, jump up on our hind legs once every generation or so whether we need to or not and think we can win one election and everything is supposed to be right with the world again.

We’re the side that has allowed the Left to gain influence and power in every crack and crevice of our society rather than driving them from the public arena with the derision and howling laughter accompanying their shameful exit that their foolish, dangerous and unworkable ideas deserve.

Approximately 2% of the population of the colonies actively fought the British and won the right to establish the greatest civilization in the history of mankind.  While our culture as America is relatively young at 236 years our form of government is one of the longest surviving ever, but nothing lasts forever.  2%.

Maybe it’s too late.

Maybe we’ve passed the point of no return and there’s no way to reverse the course our nation is on.

Maybe I do know what Joe Paterno would have said, ‘I don’t why I didn’t do anything, I just didn’t.’

Jonathon Sharkey: 2012 Presidential Candidate Profile

It’s been said that truth is often stranger than fiction. I would have to say this very well may be the case with Presidential Candidate Jonathon Sharkey.

Personal Information

 

 

John Albert Sharkey was born on April 2, 1964 in Elizabeth, New Jersey to Al and Mary Sharkey. He currently lives in Florida, and has officially put his hat into the ring for President of The United States of America.

Education
St. Hedwig’s Grammar School in Elizabeth, NJ.- became an Alter Boy in December 1973.
Elizabeth High School, Elizabeth, NJ.
Kansas State University- majored in Pre-Law and minored in music.
Hillsborough Community College for Business Administration
2004- Received Ph.D. in Political Science from SCU, Lake Charles, LA
The Hollywood Film Institute

Military Career
August 1981 to August 1990- Served in the United States Army
Disabled Veteran,

“who just had his left knee replaced by world famous orthopedic surgeon and team physician for the Tampa Bay Lightning – Dr. Ira Guttentag”

Commenting on the killing of Osama bin Laden, Mr. Sharkey says:

“If I was President when the US Navy Seals went after bin Laden, I would have lead the military operation. That’s the difference between a Combat Arms Veteran and a civilian. I know not only how to draw up a military attack, but, lead the attack to complete success.”

Civilian Career
American Wrestler, known as “The Impaler”
Wrestling Instructor who trained Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
Recorded a CD
Owner of Impaler Films, Inc., which is currently producing the movies listed under  On The Web at the bottom of this page

Religious Beliefs
Luciferian who follows the the Goddess Hecate- hence, he is a Pagan
Vampyre who claims to actually drink blood twice a week

Jonathon Sharkey comes from a Catholic family,  but says he’s always hated God The Father. He says,

“My hatred bloomed into a whole new meaning on 26 Oct 86 when my Grandmother died.  All the good that I process and do, is because or her. All the evil I process is strictly from me and when I destroy someone, or harm them, I do it because they crossed me, not because Lucifer or Satan told me to.”

His mother was a Hecate Witch and at 5, he started practicing the Craft. Of this, he says, “As you know, the Vatican and the RC Church are very much against Witches. Hence, they are my enemy.

You never hear of a Pagan Priest molesting a child. But, Catholic Priest are a long history of it. Maybe if the Vatican let them marry Nuns, it would allow them to have sex legally, and they won’t attack innocent children.”

Mr. Sharkey says though he hates “God the Father” he has no problem with Jesus. Mr. Sharkey stated in his 2006 run for governor in Minnesota that he respects all religions that respect people, saying

“According to the 1st Amendment, every American has a right to his own religious beliefs and practices. However, as President i will not tolerate Witch Hunts or personal religious attacks.”

Of the good things he does in his life he says,

“In the same breath, all the good things I do for people, is because I want to… Not because a Bible, minister or Jesus tells me to. My good deeds are done from my heart.”

Civic Affiliations
Previously served on MADD’s Public Policy Board
Previously served served on the Hillsborough County, Florida Republican Party’s Executive Committee

Political Affiliations
Republican
Vampyres, Witches and Pagans Party

Political Candidacies
Jonathon Sharkey has run in more than one state-level and nations elections. He is a perennial candidate, meaning his numerous bids for various offices have resulted in no victories.

Due to his somewhat strange public persona he has attracted a large amount of media coverage. He has also had more than one run-ins with the police.

In 2006 he ran for Governor of the State of Minnesota
The 2012 Presidential Race makes it Mr. Sharkey’s 3rd attempt for the office. He ran in both the 2004 and the 2008 election.

On The Issues
In the unlikely event that Jonathon Sharkey were to be elected President we would have no concern with the closure of Guantanamo Bay.

He believes, “Certain criminals, instead of being put in jail, they should be brutally tortured and impaled….Upon them being found guilty of their crimes I’ll beat them, torture them, dismember them and decapitate them. ”
We  most certainly would be able to cut the Federal and States’ budgets with this policy in place! I am quite sure he would work quickly to streamline the endless waste of tax-payers money by making quick work of the criminals who have been on death row for decades.

Mr. Sharkey would outlaw abortion- in his words, “unlike the so-called previous Christian Presidents”.
He “will protect the elderly and disabled Americans’ disability payments and medical care needs”
He would bring our troops back from the war zones and reward them properly. Again, in his words, “Not like the present administration is doing.”
Once again quoting Mr. Sharkey, “And unlike the politicians in DC and America, I will not be a puppet of the ESTABLISHMENT or Special interest groups.”

I had the opportunity to ask Mr. Sharkey where he stands on certain issues that are important in America today. Here are his responses.

Israel… Back in 2004, a Christian Minister I knew, realizing I would have a political future told and showed me this JerUSAlem. The USA has been pre-ordained to protect Israel, and as President, not only will I protect Israel, but, I will give them King Solomon’s Temple back.

Immigration… I was born and raised in Jersey. Still live there. I grew up in a section of Elizabeth that had a lot of immigrants. These people came to America the right and legal way. Not through a hole in a fence or illegal means.

I will allow LEGAL Immigration into America. However, anyone found here illegally will be deemed a terrorist and will be executed as one via Impalement. Children who are here illegally, will be allowed to stay with their American relatives.

No immigrant will be given any special treatment. They will have to survive on their own. Not by tax payers money.

Energy… I believe we need to explore as many SAFE and productive means to take care of our energy needs. I’ve been seeing commercials about land drilling to get oil and other energy items. I support that. Given the fact that I was in Tampa last Summer when the BP oil accident happened, I think off shore drilling needs to be handled safer and more equipment needs to be used, to protect America against another accident.

I do not support tax breaks for the Oil Companies.

I would also set a national gas price standard for all companies to follow – $1.00 for Regular… $1.15 for Medium Grade…. $1.30 for Prem.

Obamacare is a joke and unconstitutional. As President I would legalize marijuana (I do not use it,. nor will I) and Prostitution (I’ve never paid for sex, nor will I). These two things would be put under state control and the money made from them, would be sued to provide medical, dental and prescription care for those who can’t afford it.

Plus, with marijuana and prostitution legalized, there will be more jail space for real criminals.

Medicare and Social SecurityMedicare money will come from the above mentioned program. Social Security needs a total overhaul. I would add a special tax on the gas companies to make them pay back all their perks over the years.

In my discussions with Mr. Sharkey I told him of my passion for The Broken System of Foster Care. I asked him what he would do as President in regards to these voiceless children.

As far as your special concerns… I am totally against Abortion as a form of Birth Control (The only think the Vatican and I agree upon). I would institute Brazil’s laws regarding abortion.

I commend women who don’t get abortions. And yes, their is a problem with Foster Homes and Agencies.

Pat Benatar did a song in the 80’s Hell Is For Children. It is bad enough if a child is orphaned or has to be taken from their parent(s), but to send them into another form of nightmare is wrong too.

As President, I will protect innocent children and protect them from not only being abused by their parents and criminals, but, from the abuse and negligence of the system set up to protect them.

In an effort to protect and help them, I would order states to give more casino licenses and from the taxes and revenues made from these businesses, a bigger and better foster care system would evolve. More case workers and managers…More support to families who open their hearts to these children.

Remember, as President … ANYONE WHO ABUSES A CHILD, WILL FACE ME AND BE IMPALED FOR THEIR CRIME!

Political Criticisms
A fellow committee member on the Hillsborough County, Florida Republican Party’s Executive Committee stated that Jonathon Sharkey believes in the values of the Republican Party, but says he needs to focus on the issues, not his “extreme behaviors”.

Legal Trouble:
The United States Secret Service investigated Mr. Starkey after he threatened to “impale” President George W. Bush.
Mr. Sharkey went to jail in Tennessee for threatening a judge in Indiana. Weapons were confiscated from his property upon his arrest.
Mr. Sharkey responded to this information, saying the following:

“As far as the judge in Indianapolis, he is a defendant in the Indianapolis District Court for his wrongful actions against me. Case # 1:09-cv-1127-LJM-DML.”

We previously reported that according to the online resource we used for this article that he currently has a restraining order filed against him by the family of a 16-year-old Minnesota girl, stating that Sharkey “brainwashed” the girl. Mr. Sharkey denies that this is true.

Mr. Sharkey also shared a video he made with this 16-year-old in which they both present a case that the girl was abused by a family member. Mr. Sharkey says that when the investigation was going on in this case, the accused family member mis-quoted him- I would assume as a “retaliation” of sorts. This is his statement in regards to that:

“…[the 16-year-olds family member] worded what I said differently, and got a restraining order. She did this MN, where my kind have no rights. Remember on 13 Jan 06, my at the time Pagan wife was fired from her job as a school bus driver…”

We also previously stated that there is another legal situation concerning yet another 16-year-old girl to which Mr. Sharkey admitted harrassing. When I asked him about this situation, he responded,

“As to that particular situation, he says, “As far as the 16 year old ADMITTED Vampyre Hunter… Secret Service told me since I was getting death threats from Vampyre Hunter groups, and Meranda admitted to being part of an ELITE VAMPYRE HUNTER SOCIETY, to see if she was tied to them. I did intensely ask her who these people are.

In Minnesota though, it is considered Harassment/Verbal Assault to call your GF or ex-GF, wife… a B*TCH. I called Meranda a B. Several times. Hence, I violated MN Law. Oh well… A Petty Misdemeanor for freedom of expression. What the media did not say, was her phone records showed she had called me, and places where she knew I went to. In Jersey that is called stalking. But, in America, Vampyres. Witches, Pagans and non-liked religious members don’t have the same rights under the law.”

Mr. Sharkey asked that since this article discusses the above situations that we also include that he has the name of another previous (then) 16-year-old girlfriend’s name tattooed on his arm.

Mr. Sharkey appears to have quite a few chinks in his armor that may cause him great difficulty in actually securing the Republican nomination for the 2012 Presidential election. I guess only time will tell if history will repeat itself, or if Mr. Sharkey’s luck will change.

In closing during my conversation with Mr. Sharkey, he wanted to add a personal note:

On a personal note, I think if politicians and officials drank less alcohol (especially at political events and dinners) their minds would be clearer to think about the real reason why they were elected… To take care of the people… They would less abled to be manipulated by lobbiests, special interest groups and the ESTABLISHMENT!
