THIS IS AMERICA, IS IT TIME FOR THE GLOVES TO COME OFF?

This is America, land of the free and the home of the brave. This is America where you have freedom of speech. If you don’t like what your government officials are doing, you can say you don’t like what they’re doing. At the next election, you can vote them out.

I say some strong stuff in this blog. I don’t like what the current administration’s doing and I say it. When I turn in tonight, I’m not fearing that a creepy black government vehicle will pull up outside my door, secret police will shoot the locks off, enter my home, drag me from my bed, and take me off to some prison where I’ll be tortured and eventually die. As far as I know that’s not currently happening and I don’t think it will. Before this kind of stuff begins to happen, I think the American people will take things in their own hands and do what’s necessary.

People are being destroyed in this country because they don’t tow the “tolerant left” line. The most recent casualty that has taken place is the shutting down of Memories Pizza in Walkerton, Indiana. There been several stories to emerge regarding the closing down of this private family business. The latest I have read was from pjmedia.com.

According to pjmedia, an ABC-57 report our of South Bend, Alyssa Marino, was sent by her editor to the small town of Walkerton, Indiana where she just walked into Memories Pizza and asked how they felt about Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Owner Crystal O’Connor says she’s in favor of it, noting that while anyone can eat in her family restaurant, if the business were asked to cater a gay wedding, they would not do it because it conflicted with their biblical beliefs. In a tweet, Ms. Marino indicated that the O’Connors had never been asked to cater a same same-sex wedding.

According to pjmedia, Memories Pizza didn’t blast out a news release. They didn’t contact the media, nor did they make a stink on Twitter or Facebook. They didn’t even post a sign in the window rejecting gay wedding catering jobs. They simply answered questions from a novice reporter who strolled into their restaurant.

On the ABC-57 news that night, quite a different story was broadcast. The story indicated that while South Bend, Indiana is “welcoming,” that small business (Memories Pizza) is not. Not only did ABC-57 create that story out of nothing, but the next day, another station reporter reported on the social media backlash against the Christian pizza shop owners. Not only did the ABC affiliate in South Bend manufacture the story with an ambush interview, they doubled down by making the reaction to the story into another story by give the impression of momentum against Memories Pizza and its owners.
Meanwhile things escalated to the point where folks who had never heard of Walkerton attached Crystal O’Connor and her business, her morality, and her Lord. Pmjedia.com also indicated that many of the remarks included racially charged descriptions of genitalia and sex acts. Reviewers also posted pictures of naked man, of Adolf Hitler shouting “ich habe ein pizza” (I have a pizza), and of Jesus gesturing with his middle finger.

In Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals, a manifesto of political power, Rule No. 12 says, in part: “Go after people and not institutions, people hurt faster than institutions.” The “tolerant left” doesn’t care who gets hurt as long as they get what they want. They’re more than eager to destroy small business owners.

Also, a female coach at a high school in Elkhart tweeted, “Who’s going to Walkerton, IN to burn down #memoriespizza w me?”

From a non-story, the “tolerant left” destroys a privately owned small business in a small town in Indiana and apparently has no shame. Granted, Crystal O’Connor was not picked up by the PC police, jailed and tortured, but the “tolerant left” has destroyed her and her business just the same. This is very scary, and if it doesn’t upset you, you’re a FOOL! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

It makes me wonder how long it is going to be until the “tolerant left” comes after me, a southern white conservative Christian from the Birmingham, Alabama area. How will they find me? What will they do to me and the people who follow me? Will they destroy my personal property and the things that I have worked so hard to achieve?

There have been articles out there claiming that SunTrust bank is closing the accounts of Gun Shops. So, it looks as though the “tolerant left” is in the process of demonizing business concerns they don’t like.

It may be time to call a Convention of States in an effort to re-establish the principles on which the United States of America was founded. It may be time for the gloves to come off. Instead of lobbing back and forth on the Internet and social media, it may be time to travel to Washington D.C. and boldly confront this administration which is doing its damned well best to destroy this country. Maybe we should also directly confront the Democrat National Committee and tell the Democrats/liberals/progressives that we’re tired of their lies, tired of them ignoring facts, tired of their insults, and tired of their hate-filled rhethoric.

I’m really a nothing and a nobody, and as the liberals would say, an unenlightened oaf, but things are moving so fast that we may come to a point where those of us who hold different view that the “tolerant left” and their cohorts in the mainstream media may be subjected to physical imprisonment and torture before we know it.

I think the “tolerant left” needs to be confronted directly and I’m thinking about ways to start doing just that.

ON NET NEUTRALITY

The Federal Communications Commission past a set of Internet regulations known as “Net Neutrality” by a vote of 3-2 yesterday, February 26, 2015. What is Net Neutrality and what’s it going to mean to me are the questions most asked by private citizens such as myself.

According to USA Today, Net Neutrality is the principle that Internet Service Providers should give consumers access to all legal content and applications on an equal basis, without favoring some sources and blocking others. It prohibits ISPs from charging content providers for speedier delivery of their content on “fast lanes” and deliberately slowing the content from content providers that may compete with ISPs.

ISP stands for Internet Service Provider and is a company that provides you access to the Internet. Examples include ComCast, AT&T, Verizon, etc. Content providers include companies such as Amazon and NetFlix. In other words, content providers are companies that create and distribute content. I guess Wing Nut Gal is a content provider. Sometimes ISPs can also be content providers.

The regulations are 317 pages long, but it appears that only the commissioners have seen the regulations. According to TomsGuide.com, Net Neutrality is about treating all content on the Internet equally. Websites like NetFlix and Amazon won’t be given preferential treatment in relation to any other website, no matter how small. So, ISPs can’t give content providers preferential treatment/access to more bandwidth to the Amazons and the NetFlixes of the Internet.
This is like everything else the government throws out at us. It sounds good, but what are the unintended consequences or the intended consequences, for that matter. Since I started Wing Nut Gal, I’ve said this until I’m blue in the face. Our country was founded on the principle of limited government. Government would stay out of people’s lives and give the individuals room to take care of themselves and create wealth. So, anytime the government sticks its nose into something, we have to beware. Now, I’m not a libertarian. I’m a mainstream Republican. So, I realize that government has a role to play in a lot of aspects of our lives, but we’re headed down the road to becoming a socialist country where the government provides for its citizens womb to tomb everything. You don’t have to take responsibility for any aspect of your life, government will provide.

Do you think the government is going to stop with these 317 pages of regulations? If your answer is yes, I have some swamp land in Louisiana that you might be interested in. Eventually, it’s going to be costlier to access the Internet and it won’t be as user-friendly. Will certain types of speech be prohibited? I’m sure that somewhere within the government, some little bureaucrat monitors Wing Nut Gal. Could someone be watching me, monitoring my comings and goings? Am I on some kind of list? Will I be audited by the IRS while we have a Democrat administration?

I remember back during the later years of the Clinton administration, a government website was being developed. It was touted as the only website any of us would need to visit. It was a minor news story and didn’t get much traction. Once President Bush moved into the oval office, you never heard anything else.

I don’t want the government sticking its nose into the Internet. And even if these regulations sound good to you, please activate that second brain cell and think this thing through.
