I’ve Been Polled

Image result for images of stupid opinion poll

Wow, the Marist College Poll phoned me last night, soliciting my opinion on a myriad of issues.

I got kind of wound up, though, because a lot of the questions weren’t what I’d call honest questions. They contained presuppositions which I just wasn’t buying–and I had to tell them so.

For instance: “Do you consider yourself white, black, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, etc.?” If I considered myself black, would that make me  black?

And then there were a bunch of questions that had to do with “a person in the process of transitioning from one sex to another.” Hold it! I don’t recognize that as a valid category. No matter what they do to you surgically, no matter how stereotypically you try to mimic the other sex, no matter what hormones they shoot you up with–if you’re a man, every single cell in your body will continue to be male, with male chromosomes. But they kept asking, and I had to keep answering, “That is not a valid category, those people are not in fact having their sex changed, it is an imbecility forced on our society by very wicked persons.”

Some of the questions in this poll reflected a deep dishonesty that has crept into our very language, making it extremely difficult to speak the truth, and maybe even impossible, at times.

How dishonest? Let us not forget that some of these pollsters had Hillary Clinton winning big, big, big, right up into Election Night. They lied to themselves, and believed it.

I know a few individuals who lie to themselves. You probably do, too. How does that work out for them?

When Solon the philosopher saw the first play ever put on in Athens, he didn’t like it. When they asked him why not, he said, “All that lying–and in public, too! Now it’s on a stage, but sooner or later it’ll get into our business.”

Lying can be habit-forming. Ask any politician.

Feds Go to War Against ‘The Gender Binary’

So you think all that stupid psycho garbage is confined to the colleges and universities?


It always oozes out into the national life, costing untold millions of dollars and making a shambles of the American character. I wonder if the whole point of it is to set up a society that can easily be conquered by Islam.

And so the U.S. Dept. of Labor has gotten into the act, unveiling a new proposal to re-do all its documents and posters–at a cost of several million dollars–to… are you sitting down?–“to avoid the gender binary” ( http://www.nationalreview.com/article/430379/department-labor-anti-discrimination-he-she-pronouns ).

As taught by drooling idiots in colleges throughout the land, the use of the ordinary pronouns “he” and “she” has become taboo. So all the USDL’s printed material must be reprinted, to replace the offending pronouns with gender-neutral language.

What do you want to bet there are more asinine regulations protecting so-called “transgender persons,” and more public statements praising them, than there actually are “transgendered” individuals?

This is the United States government, with our tax dollars, getting involved in academic flim-flam. Removing ordinary English pronouns from all posters in all Labor Dept. facilities–you won’t believe this–is going to provide “an important benefit to society,” according to a Labor Dept. spokesidiot. Oh, really? And what benefit is that?

Anyhow, said the spokesmoron, this expensive and time-consuming project is necessary to reflect “our commitment to diversity.”

The bacillus of Political Correctness aka horseshit always escapes from the colleges and universities to pollute the real world.

It is to our shame that we are governed by such people as this.

Stupidest Words Ever Published?

Although it may be premature to call this tweet ( http://a1000laff.com/say-what-this-person-says-its-not-okay-to-call-babies-he-or-she/ ) the stupidest words ever published, certainly it’s in the running.

Why is it okay to call babies he or she? They can’t speak yet, so they can’t say their preferred gender.

If idiocy were jewels, this would be the Hope Diamond. Just a few years ago, actually saying something like this would be unthinkable. It shows how far our civilization has degenerated in a very short time.

Great ninnyhammers are born, not made. No amount of training, practice, desire, or application can take anyone to such heights of idiocy as this. We can only ponder it in awe.

New York ‘Law’ Makes It a Crime to Speak the Truth

If some new regulation required you to acknowledge some nut as Napoleon because he insists he is Napoleon, you’d probably consider it unjust, not to mention stupid.

Well, in New York City, you can now be fined up to a quarter of a million dollars for referring to some “transgender” wacko by the “wrong” pronoun, or in any other way failing to get on board with his or her delusion ( http://dailycaller.com/2015/12/28/new-york-can-fine-you-250k-for-misgendering-somebody/ ).

Yes! The Democrats running the city into the ground have come up with a brand-new crime: misgendering. “What are you in for?” the armed robber/murderer/car thief asked the new arrival in the prison.  “They busted me for misgendering.” Horrified gasps all around.

So put that one on the shelf along with homophobia, Islamophobia, Climate Change Denial, and all the other new crimes dreamed up by libs ‘n’ progs.

It is their goal to make any conceivable detail of human behavior potentially punishable. That’ll keep us on our toes. When you can never go to bed without some lurking fear of the Thought and Speech Police breaking down your door in the middle of the night, that’s when the libs will be satisfied.

For the record: no matter what surgical mutilations are carried out, no matter what hormones or other chemicals are injected, no matter what anybody says, every cell, every single one of millions and millions, in a male human body remains male. And every cell in a female human body remains female. No matter what they say, no matter what they do.

New York City’s new “law” is a law against reality.

‘Woman of the Year’–a Man

Civil War General Ambrose Burnside was every bit as much a woman then as Bruce Jenner is now. (You didn’t really think I was gonna post a picture of Jenner, did you? My stomach won’t take it.)

It was bound to happen. Glamour Magazine, it has been leaked, is going to name a man its 2015 Woman of the Year ( http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/10/25/women-cry-foul-glamour-magazine-names-bruce-jenner-woman-year/ ).

The lucky man is Bruce Gender–er, Jenner–who has had all sorts of things done to his body so he can call himself a woman.

For those of you who slept through high school biology, every one of the millions and millions of cells in a male human body has XY chromosomes. Female cells have XX chromosomes. Therefore Bruce Gender is still a man. Not one cell in his body is female.

Now, what is the purpose of all this? Our Progressive friends would have us forced to confess that Bruce Gender is a woman, on pain of being labeled Haters and Bigots and being barred from public speaking. Having redefined marriage, they feel free to redefine truth. As we saw yesterday, they teach your children that 5+5+5 does not equal 15.

The whole thrust of this program is Satanic to the core. They breed confusion, chaos, and fear, possibly to get us into the mood for a global government with them in charge of it. But who can read such depraved and addled minds?

When the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do (Psalm 11:3)?

Well, we can at least stick to the truth and speak it. We can at least do that.

Now They’re Sliming ‘A Christmas Carol’

Water pollution is bad; but easier to control than spiritual pollution.

So the Perky Publicist has invited me to read a new book. I will not mention the title or the author. It is a book that takes Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, A Christmas Carol, and dunks it in “transgender” poison.

The author used to be a man. Each and every cell in his body is still male, with an XY chromosome, but now we’re supposed to accept him as “a woman” or else be branded haters and homophobes. The fact that he is not a woman is irrelevant. Facts always are, these days.

As Dickens wrote it, A Christmas Carol is a story of repentance and redemption. Scrooge learns to see his sins for what they are, he is heartily sorry for them, and the sovereign grace of God turns his life around, and saves it.

But in this happening-now book, “Christmas” is all about sin not being sin anymore. You don’t have to repent because it’s not a sin, after all, and Jesus Christ does not have to redeem you because the Bible was wrong all along about certain types of behavior being abhorrent to God. The book “breaks through boundaries of traditional Christmas stories by including a transgender character” and “encourages families to accept those members who may be ‘different.'”

It asks us to affirm sinners in their sin, denying that it’s sin and rejecting the authority of Scripture.

Christ went to an awful lot of trouble for nothing, didn’t He?

Let me tell you what scares me. It’s the thought that God will simply run out of patience with us, wash His hands of us, turn His back on us, and not intervene as we drown ourselves in our own filthiness. But God is not a man, that He should lie, and God will keep His promises. Somehow He will redeem and regenerate us.

In spite of transgender Christmas stories.

When to be Scared of Cucumbers

Your country is desolate, your cities are burned with fire: your land, strangers devour it in your presence, and it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers. And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.  Isaiah 1:7-8

A lodge in a garden of cucumbers?

There are images in the Bible that stay with you forever, even if you don’t know what they mean. This is an image that has stayed with me. It’s night-time, and I see the black silhouette of a broken-down building surrounded by a measureless expanse of tangled, rioting cucumber vines…

“Lodge,” by the way, doesn’t mean a fancy building that charges you an arm and a leg to stay there. According to Strong’s Concordance, the actual Hebrew word is more accurately rendered “hut.” Maybe even something as rude and as temporary as a lean-to.

Okay, now, go ahead, tell me those verses of Isaiah don’t apply to our own country, here and now. They are a warning–a warning which Jerusalem chose not to heed, and so brought about destruction. And they did it without staging homosexual parodies of marriage, mutilating a man and insisting he’s been made a woman, forcing good people to pay for abortions, or having a national leader stand up and say “God bless Planned Parenthood!”–the folks who cut up babies while they’re still alive and sell their parts.

The Western world today, which once was known as Christendom, has wallowed in sins which ancient Jerusalem never even thought of.

God has warned us, but we haven’t listened.

Here comes trouble.

Students Protest Boy Using Girls’ Locker Room

Apparently this easy-to-read sign does not apply to you if you are a boy who insists he is a girl. That doesn’t make you a girl. It just makes you a ninny.

So what have we learned since September 11, 2001?

Well, we’ve learned this.

Students walked out of Hillsboro High School, Missouri, recently to protest the school board’s decision to allow a 17-year-old boy to use the girls’ locker room because he says he is a girl ( http://www.worldmag.com/2015/09/missouri_students_protest_over_boy_allowed_in_girls_locker_room ). Three school board members have resigned in protest over that decision.

The school had even provided a special “gender-neutral” (ugh) locker room for this character, but that wasn’t good enough. Nope, he wants to use the girls’ locker room, with the girls in it, because he says he’s a girl, too.

Note this fact of elementary biology: Every cell in this  boy’s body, no matter what he says, no matter what he does, remains unalterably male because it contains a Y-chromosome.

We have seen this pattern before. A whole townful of Christians loses its annual Christmas parade because a single atheist objects. You can’t bow your head and say grace in a public cafeteria because a single misanthrope might sue whoever owns the cafeteria. And so on.

Let’s try this. An enterprising lad named William says he is now a cat, not a boy, and therefore is no longer required to go to school. He has renamed himself Fluffy. “Meow,” he says.

Does that make him a cat? Or just an idiot?

So now a whole high school-ful of girls can’t get changed in privacy because some boy who says he’s a girl demands to use their locker room. And the majority of the school board knuckled under.

No wonder ISIS thinks they will inevitably conquer us.

The All-Time Worst Job Ever

So how do you officially determine someone’s “gender”? For instance, for issuing a driver’s license, or deciding whether some extremely confused individual is to play for the high school boys’ or girls’ track team?

A law proposed in the South Dakota legislature suggests it be done by “visual inspection,” which is overpaid public employee talk for “looking.” ( http://rapidcityjournal.com/news/local/visual-inspection-could-be-part-of-state-law-to-determine/article_18b24dba-550f-5de9-b805-37409c4a7f5c.html#.VeShDVi1x-w.email )

“All right, now… drop your pants/pull up your dress and let’s have a nice close look-see…”

Can you imagine a more wretched job than “gender inspector,” or whatever else they’d call it? Can you imagine doing that all day? Set up a tent or a booth at the Division of Mother Vehicles office, and everybody stand in line to have your gender inspected.

It’s possible the law might not be passed. There are lawmakers in South Dakota who want to throw out the whole gender business as being beneath the dignity of South Dakota and suitable only to those liberal wackos in New York and California. They are thinking of not even listening to whatever someone says his or her or its “gender” is and just getting the info from a birth certificate.

Currently they are trying to deal with a public school “policy”–overpaid public employee talk for “complete absence of thinking”–that lets high school boys play on the girls’ team if they insist they are girls, and vice versa. There is some sentiment in the legislature for not allowing the whole society to be overturned for some debatable benefit to an almost nonexistent micro-minority.

Meanwhile, don’t forget. No matter what they do to you, no matter what you do to yourself, every single cell of the millions of cells in a male human body contains a Y-chromosome, and every single cell in a female human body doesn’t.

So what we are talking about, really, is bending over backwards to accommodate an imaginary minority.

And then some poor schmo is gonna wind up earning a living by looking at strangers’ genitals all day.

More of Your Tuition Dollars at Work

I wonder what you have to do, to get a job as a “vice chancellor for diversity and inclusion” at a major university. Do you have to be an absolute idiot, or will they settle for a big fat dope?

At the University of Tennessee-Knoxville, the resident big fat dope is calling on all students to use, from now on, really silly words that other idiots made up, instead of ordinary English pronouns ( http://townhall.com/columnists/michaelbrown/2015/08/31/zis-is-what-i-call-social-madness-n2045757 ). This self-imposed Babel is supposed to do away with hateful, oppressive “binary gender” pronouns like “he” and “she” and replace them with “gender neutral” slop like “ze” and “xe,” “zirs” and “xyr,” or–I think I’ll stop now.

For this you run up $100,000 of student debt? For this you sit in a classroom for five of the best years of your life instead of being out in the real world, earning money and gaining experience?

This twaddle is supposed to reflect the newly-discovered “fact” that there are a great many genders rather than that crummy old male-and-female thing.

Which is a lie.

Here is a simple truth, easily acquired in any high school biology class, which you can trot out whenever you need to confound these people.

No matter what the surgeons do, no matter what kinds of chemicals are pumped into or out of the bloodstream, no matter what mannerisms he adopts, every single cell in Bruce Gender’s body remains forever male because it contains a Y-chromosome.

There is no such thing as a “transgendered person”. Period.
