The days of Sodom and Gomorrah

In the Federalist Patriot, the 5-22 Digest had an excellent article regarding how we are getting in to this whole homosexual mess that we find our selves in.

I have a friend by the name of Justo that responded back to me. I told him that is excellent blogging material. Well, he is a very intelligent person, but doesn't want to learn about this blogging stuff. He said to post it in mine, so with all credit to Justo, here it is.

"Whether or not Disney felt its best corporate interest was to have a “gay day” is only a superficial issue… The core issue is, one of more substance, whether or not it had the “right” to choose who it does business with? Was Disney coerced by fear of litigation; by fear of civil litigation that has been given much weight by existing anti-discrimination Congressional acts?

These anti-discrimination acts, having good intentions or not, have reduced of our personal freedoms. These acts cast all individuals into various “groups” and then shelter them with special rights above those of individuals.

Congress, marching to the drum-beat of natural decay in any Democracy, is slowly and steadily reducing our personal freedoms in favor of group protectionist legislation.

Cuba, Korea, and China, the ultimate examples of such protectionist ideals and their end result."

Well said Justo

Begging the Goverment for Permission to do Business

I work for an airline that is trying for the rights to fly into Argentina. We have been asked to write a letter to Secretary Mineta begging for him to allow us the right to do so.
Have they (USDOT) forgot who they work for? Are they not the servants of the people? Why is it we need to beg them for this right of commerce? I know that we have to grovel with other governments, but why ours? Their is something totally out of wack here.
The form letter we have been asked to write states "As an employee of (named) Airline, I respectfully urge you to Grant (name of airline) this authority.

I would edit it this way:

As an employee of (named) Airlines, and as a citizen of these United States of America, I am appalled that I even have to respectfully urge you to grant (named airline) this authority. This is a case of backwards thinking. This is something that instead of us writing to you groveling to get this authority, you and other peoples servants should be coming to us, asking (named) Airlines Inc what you can do to help this process along.

We should not be bowing or begging to our representative Government. Government should exist for us to further along commerce and to better our property rights as citizens. Where is it we went wrong with this?
