I'm not sure if I like it here anymore...
So okay -
Approx. 3.4% of Americans identify as LGBT. 13 out of 400 million in the USA. This is compared to 160 million women, 60 million Hispanics, and 50
million African Americans. Not only is it immoral to deny those that identify as LGBT the same rights as everyone else, it is pointless. Those that
identify as LGBT are a minority of a minority, regardless of how loud they are in the media. It does not effect your life, marriage, or social
mobility if LGBT persons are equal to everyone else. It absolutely simply has no impact on wider culture unless you make a huge stinking mountain out
of the issue.
The concepts of marriage and gender are not static, in time or geography. Marriage between a man and a woman started out essentially a form of
slavery, and in many parts of the world it remains this way. Women were bought and sold in marriage contracts that were determined first by culture,
then by the state, THEN by organized religion, then by the state again. There was no Golden Age, no normal to return to, no Biblical ideal to
worship. If you look to the Bible for marriage advice and direction, then you think women should be slaves and men should have the right to have more
than one wife. Stop pretending.
Women are human first. All humans should be treated as equals, as a basic moral and ethical assumption and in accordance with the lovely Golden Rule.
Equal pay, equal opportunity, equal. This should not even be a discussion. Why are so many obsessed with taking away human rights and dignity,
imposing heirarchy and control?
No medical procedure should be illegal. Period. If you don't like abortion, then teach your children behaviors that will not require them to seek
out an abortion. If you are pro-life and you thinnk abortion is murder, then first I want to know what you are personally doing in your life that
DOESN'T promote murder. iPhones are made by chinese slave labor, America is constantly involved in Orwellian warfare that kills civilians and the
men and women of our military. Chemicals and poison food cause heart disease and cancer. You support murder by paying your taxes and your power
bill, by ignoring the homeless and letting thousands of children ALREADY ALIVE starve. Mad rampant hypocrisy.
Everyone has the right to have opportunities to improve their lot in life, not just 'citizens'. Don't build a wall, don't tie up our courts with
legal bullsh!t. Implement a tax program that has a focus on goods purchased, rather on property and citizenship. Everyone in the country, regardless
of citizenry, would then be paying taxes. See the concept of the 'Fair Tax'.
If your job doesn't pay enough for you to pay for your basic needs, then it is stealing from you. The minimum wage should be equal to what is
required to pay for basic food, clothing, and housing. Why would anyone wish differenty? Why would you want people to not be just poor, but suffer
The Drug War
See Portugal's solution. These are social and mental health problems, there is nothing the law and courts can do to stop the abuse of drugs. No one
does drugs because they are happy, they self-medicate to cope with how much the world sucks. Get these people help, stop demonizing and feeding the
for-profit prisons/gulags. Would it be so terrible to HELP people?
Not ever going to happen, please stop. Obviously they are hiding something, obviously we deserve to know, obviously they will never tell us. With
the advent of the drone, reliable UFO research has been rendered nigh-unto-impossible.
Religion is a lovely thing, it supports community, family, and social bonds. Religion also fosters murder, bigotry, and theocratic madness. Every
religion is equally nuts, so have brotherhood in your pursuit of the fantasy. Sure, there appears to be something to certain supernatural events,
sure God may exist. Stop pretending like YOU are the ONE who KNOWS. You don't, no one ever did, no one ever has, and no one will ever be able to
prove it. Stop, be at peace, pursue your relationship with God, and stop trying to make everyone else do it your way.
American Fundamentalist Christianity
Get out of politics. No one wants a Theocracy in the USA. Your religion is your private business, stop trying to force it, and your way of life on
others. You are aggressive, unreasonable, and you don't even understand your own religion.
Not every piece of evidence supports the theory of evolution, so maybe don't teach it as an unchangable fact. NO evidence supports creationism, and
most that propose creationism be taught by the state are first - suggesting the state teach church ideals, and second - are suggesting only the
Judeo-Christian creation be taught, excluding thousands of other culturally relevant creation stories. Public school teachers don't get degrees in
religion, why on earth would you want them teaching it? You want to teach your chlden creationism, why in the heck don't you do it yourself or take
your kid to church?
See Neo-Fuedalism. We are a ruled people. We are labor for the elite. How is this not obvious? We are stamped with a number a involuntary
citzenship at birth, we MUST work with the system as designed by our leaders or face prison, homelessness, or forced psychiatric treatment and
medication. Stop pretending your vote matters, stop pretending that the team you picked is better than the other. All an obvious sham to extract
money from the public and into the accounts of the elite.
Unless you can build one yourself, owning a gun is not a 'right', it is a good to be purchased. Gun ownership is mentioned in the US Constitution,
not the Bill of Rights. Gun ownership is mentioned in conjenction with the ability to join a militia, not for recreation. Gun ownership does not
make you shoot people, being a crazed sociopath makes you shoot people. This is yet again a socio-cultural problem, not a legal one. Maybe don't be
so upset that crazy people shouldn't own guns, and maybe don't be upset if people want to have the right to defend themselves.
The Media and the American Medical Industry.
Do not trust a for profit institution to tell you the truth, they will tell you whatever to sell you products. See Capitalism. Isn't it obvious,
all the news organizations lie and editorialize for a particular demographic, to SELL YOU STUFF. WHATEVER IT TAKES TO SELL YOU STUFF. Did you not
know? Did no one remember to tell you? CAPITALISM.
I'm so tired and sad. I don't like the voice of ATS and of the world at large. Too many small minds. I just want to go home and be happy and
