Amendment I

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances."

 

That my friends is what the 1st Amendment says...So no matter what anyone says, we are not a "Christian Nation"...We are a nation made of many beliefs, and ideas, and we are free to have those beliefs and ideas...And our elected officials are not suppose to push their beliefs, or my beliefs, or your beliefs on everyone else...

This post, clearly is inspired by the law that some were trying to push through in Arizona...Luckily, for the sake of freedom, and common sense, the governor vetoed it...It also helped that big businesses, including the NFL put pressure on her...

Why did I say common sense...Because while many read the proposed law and saw it giving people the right to discriminated against gays and lesbians, if you read it closely, and clearly, it did more then that...A business owner who believes pre-marital sex is a sin, could turn all your fornicators away...They could look at me, and say, 'Oh no! you masturbate...Get out!'  A Muslim business owner could turn an "infidel" like me away just because our religious beliefs are different...

That's the shit people didn't see...Politicians and the media made it all about discriminating against gays...Which, many of the people behind it, are fine with...That's how they feel...Me, not so much...I have a number of gay friends, and they're no different from anyone else...They don't try to fuck me in the ass, and I don't try to tell them how great pussy is...And it is!  That's what makes America great...We have our own lives and beliefs and we don't force feed them to each other...But the law could have opened up even greater cans of worms as I pointed out...

Sadly, it isn't over...While Arizona got all the coverage, there are 11 other states, right now, with the same type of law trying to be worked through their system...Including my own backwards-ass state of Ohio...So my advice people...Start paying attention to what your elected officials are doing...Don't let politicians religious beliefs dictate local, state, or federal policy...If religions are going to get into everyone's personal lives via politics, and law, then they need to lose their tax exempt status...That's right churches, temples, mosques, those quiet little cult churches in garages just so you can be tax exempt, and all others...You want to get in on the policy wars, start kicking in your fair share...We're tired of carrying you!

 

-As for why I didn't post Monday...This weekend, I used my Christmas gift card to get my daughter a new clarinet...(I did find a good sale, $500 off) she played the hell out of the first one, and it went in for $100 worth of repairs, so I thought maybe it time for an upgrade...Then the Mrs. needed a serious upgrade on glasses/contacts...With the exam, contacts, two pairs of glasses...Well, it was more then I wanted to drop...Plus there was groceries, and other crap...Shit got expensive this weekend...So Sunday afternoon, I got drunk...Bombed by 5:00 PM...A little hockey, and sleeping by 10:00 PM...

 

-Outdoor Hockey...KNOCK IT OFF!!!

I'm sick of hearing how great these outdoor games are...Did you see that shit Saturday night...The puck being passed, and shot, and stopped inches later by the snow accumulation on the ice...It was slow, and stupid...The one game in New York was delayed, because no one realized everyday at noon, in Yankee Stadium you get a glare on a certain part of the field, which was blinding off the ice...The next game in New York, sucked...The ice was garbage, because it was too cold out...Hell, the game in LA had better ice conditions...The game in Michigan...Again with the snow...Then this past Sunday, up in British Columbia...It was raining, so they closed the retractable roof...So it wasn't an outdoor game, and still players complained about the ice being slow...

6 outdoor games in one season has killed the uniqueness of the New Years Day Winter Classic...Now it's just fucking stupid...That's the NHL...They can fuck up any good thing...

That's it people...

Have a week...

What Have We Become?

Tags: Life The World Kids Sandy Hook School School Shooting Religion The Beeze Guns Silent Night


In this spot, I normally write about college football...That won't be happening this week...Friday, 12-14-12, I had planned on writing a little piece on my daughter Molly...It was her second birthday, and I had all this great stuff to say about her...But after hearing what happened at Sandy Hook School Friday, I just wanted to get to my kids, and just be with them...

Work was crazy, busy last week, and this week will be more of the same...I didn't find out what had happened until 2:30 PM...That was the first chance I had to catch my breath and take a look at my phone...My wife texted me the little she knew...When I left work an hour later I was getting more details from the radio...I was sick to my stomach...I got the kids...We went home, ordered pizza and waited for mom to get home...We didn't talk about what happened for awhile...I just wanted us all to be...

I'll be honest, the news put me in a pretty dark place...I had the feeling that maybe all this talk of the world ending next week was for a reason...Maybe the world is sick of us humans...Maybe we don't deserve it...Within a week, two mass shootings...Let alone the non-stop violence that goes every day, that we don't hear about on the news...We've just excepted that their is going to be another shooting on the Chicago streets tonight...Oh, and a guy slashed 22 kids in China with a knife the same day...Maybe the world deserves better...

Then as my wife and I, and our oldest daughter watched the news, my wife in tears...Me holding them back...I was saddened more, when my daughter was able to talk about it all so calmly...She is a smart, sweet, sensitive kid...And when things bother her, she'll talk them out...I realized her entire life has been in a time where there has been 24 hour, non-stop coverage, instant everything, and a time when mass shootings have become a common occurrence...My God, are our children becoming desensitized to awful shit like this?

This shooting has really thrown me for a loop...20 kids...6 and 7 year olds...Gunned down....Why? What could drive anyone to do such a thing? I just can't wrap my head around it...I'm not a super religious person, but if there is such a place as Heaven...These 20 little kids, and the 6 adults who died trying to save them, and who save many others, deserve to be in such a place...

And since I brought up religion, I'd like to take issue with the people online, and in the media, who have made comments such as 'This happened because prayer/God was taken out of schools.' We are a nation of many faiths...Not just yours...Public Schools are not the place for religion...You want your kids to get religion/God in school, do what we did...Knuckle up and pay for Private/Catholic school...Don't give me crap about it costing too much...If my broke ass can do it, you can...You know where I started? I sold my most valuable guitars...We made sacrifices...That's what you do when you care about something, or you feel important...

I've also seen and heard many people complaining about pundits talking about gun control, and gun owners' rights...Yes, I'm sick of pundits talking...I want to see some real leaders talking, and debating...Yes, actually debating...That would be nice...People say it's too soon to bring this debate up...2 mass shootings in 1 week...2 small communities, that never thought it would happen there...20, six and seven year olds gunned down but some fuck-stain...This is exactly the time for a real debate to happen....Why is the First Amendment attacked so harshly by those defending the Second Amendment? I don't know what the answer is...I don't know if we can fix the problem...But I know it needs to be talked about...Ideas need to be shared...Days like 12/14/12 need to never happen again...

Well, my weekend had started out pretty damn good...Friday night the wife and I went to dinner...We both had steak, because that fish on Friday thing is crap...Just an old bullshit deal the Church worked out with the fishermen to help increase the sales of fish...Then we saw the movie "Safe House"...Pretty good...I liked it...Kept you wondering, and had some good action...Then on the way home I talked the wife into giving me some road head...Always good!

But after about an hour after wee got home, something happened...Something went wrong...Twitter blew up with the news that the Washington Redskins had traded 3 first round picks, and a 2nd round pick to the Rams, to move up to the number two slot in the draft...Locking up the ability to draft Robert Griffin III...My dream of seeing this was crushed


Kid looked good in Brown and Orange...

I was pissed...Then rumors came out that the Browns had actually been in the mix...Offering almost as much...But honestly, I don't believe anything Adam Schefter says...Guy just throws shit against the wall and waits to see if it sticks...He's wrong at least 75% of the time! So I'm skeptical about how much the Browns really dug into the trade talks...

That said, looking at all the holes the Browns have to fill, and the fact that GM Tom Heckert said he doesn't plan on making a splash in free agency, maybe it's better they didn't give up this year's 1st and 2nd, along with their next two 1st rounders...(Yeah, I'm trying to be positive)...

Then of course we have had to deal with the Peyton Manning circus...Christ, early in the week the news broke that the Colts were going to release Manning, and all the fuck-stains at ESPN acted as if they were shocked by this...We all knew this was going to happen. Why is everyone going bat-shit about it?

Then the "Bounty-gate" talk has continued...First, I'm sick of everything semi-scandalous event, or topic having "gate" added to the end of it...This is all Nixon's fault...Ever since Watergate, we have had to put up with this...But fuck-heads, it took place in the Watergate Hotel...Gate doesn't mean bad, or dirty, or scandal...It was just part of the hotels name...So knock off all the "gate" shit!

Second, fuck all this pussy talk about this bounty shit...Monstrous men, playing a violent game, having their coach offer them money to take the violence up a notch...How and why is it so shocking? What shocking is it took this long for some one to actually talk about it...

Now I'm going to get into the political waters...Always dangerous, I know...I've avoided politics for awhile...I've been pretty much sick of all these dolts! But I have to speak up about this Rick Santorum idiot...

Listen, I understand and I can respect that there are people who's political views can be some-what shaped by their faith...But this guy is out there constantly talking about religion...Nothing about the economy...Nothing about foreign policy...Nothing about the environment...Nothing about the cost of education going up, while the quality of education is going down...It's just all about his Christianity...Are you running for President of the United States, or High Priest?

Santorum said that Kennedy's speech about separation of Church and State made him want to puke...Then I see some idiot bitch on TV saying she likes him because he believes in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights...No he doesn't! If he did he'd be all for Separation of Church and State...This country was founded Freedom of Religion...Not 'freedom to be Christian and if you aren't we're going to force our beliefs on you.'

And then of course there was big, fat, Rush Limbaugh calling a young woman a slut, and a prostitute...Rush and Rick don't think women's contraception should be covered by insurance or medicare/medicaid...Nor should having their tubes tide...Yet it's okay for a vasectomy to be covered...It's okay for Limbaugh's Viagra prescription to be covered...And yes, all those old timers have Viagra covered by Medicare/Medicaid...

Rush likes to stand on some moral high ground...Really, guy who has been divorced 3 times...He's on wife #4, yet he's fathered no kids...Were they using contraception? Has Rush been shooting blanks all these years? Maybe...Could be a side effect from all those years abusing Oxy!

It's odd, these two guys are a couple of these fuckers who say Government is too big, and needs to back off...But then they want to tell people what they can and can't do in their bedrooms...They turn around and say, 'You two women can't love each other, can't muff dive, and can't get married.' Or they say, 'Of course have sex with your wife, but no birth control allowed.' Or, 'Sorry you had a fucked up family member who sexually abused you, and got you pregnant, but you aren't allowed to abort it.' Yet none of these fuckers are standing in line to adopt the unwanted children they want to force women to have...

And fuck off if you to bash me for being pro-choice...Sorry, I don't believe some suit should be making choices for all women because of his faith...And while I believe that, clearly I'm pro-life...I got these three kids running around making me crazy don't I!

If your religious, if you have faith in a higher power, fucking awesome...But your faith shouldn't be trying to dictate government policy for a country made up all kinds of different faiths, and people who don't attach themselves to a particular faith...

And the only bit of God I want to hear about in the bedroom is this...

God Was In My Bed...

  Okay, maybe not...But between that title and the picture, I'm sure I caught your attention...And yes, God is the feature topic of this post...If you read my last POST, you know I get salty when God and Politics and matters of the State get mixed together...Well that's not the only time it gets under my skin...

My 12 years of Catholic schooling taught me many things...Including that God or a Higher Power does not picks sides in sporting events...I have attended mass at The Basilica at Notre Dame, and gone to the Grotto countless times, and not only did I not pray for a victory, I'm pretty sure if I did, it wouldn't have mattered...It's not God's fault the Irish couldn't stop NAVY's option attack...

We often hear athletes thank God after a big victory...How they couldn't have done it without him...Hell I saw that JET dude from the Mavericks do it...(Yeah I don't really follow basketball)...And then LeBron James tweeted how God wasn't ready for him to win a championship yet...Ummm guys, I highly doubt that the Almighty was really focused on your Basketball game!

The NBA Draft was Thursday night...The NHL Draft started Friday night...There have been guys drafted in both, who got in front of a mic and thanked, "The Lord Jesus Christ." He didn't get you drafted! You coaches over the years...Your parents...The quality competition you faced...Hard work and determination....These things got you drafted...

We've seen entertainers thank God when they win awards...Really? God enjoyed your movie so much more, that he snapped his fingers and said, 'YOU WIN!' Grow up people!

I'm not hating on people for being religious...I'm not shitting on them for having a strong commitment to their Faith...Whatever gets you through your days...If it helps you sleep at night, great...But I think there needs to be a bit of common sense involved...The idea of God, or an all-powerful being, that is in charge of this crazy world, is big...That's serious shit...And to think this higher power really gives a shit about who wins and loses the "Super Bowl" just seems silly to me...

I mean isn't he busy right now, with the drought, the wild-fires, the flooding, raining out Tee-Ball games...Japan being radioactive from 3 meltdowns, and still having small quakes...Alaska has had Quakes all week...Wars around the world...Genocide in Africa...Seems like there are some things ahead of who wins and loses on the big guy's to-do list...

Oh, and by the way Kurt Warner and LeBron James...All that bad stuff I mentioned...You know, the wars, genocide, floods, earthquakes, droughts, blah, blah, blah, all that...Now is God causing that? Or is he suppose to fix that stuff...Just wondering!

Sorry if I got too heavy...Here's where I boosted the title from...

Monday is here again, I hope everyone got plenty of moaning done during the weekend...This week I actually have a bit of sports to talk about, but look out, this topic tends to get political...

I'll start by saying this...Before you call Sean Avery a fag...

Dude was banging this...


And this, before Dion Phaneuf...



Yeah, she's the one he called his sloppy seconds...He also popped one of the Olsen twins, besides a bunch of other celebritard skanks...

Why am I bringing this up...Because Avery, known for being one of the NHL's most hated players, recently publicly support the "Equal Marriage Rights" campaign in New York state...Of course he was blasted by a bunch of haters on Twitter...Including agent Todd Reynolds, who went off, including saying, "Legal or not it will always be wrong."

Who knew that we would still be fighting over equal rights in 2011...To me that's what this is all about...Civil rights...This country fought over blacks having the right to be counted as people, not just three fifths of a man, as the constitution read...We fought for blacks to have the right to vote...We fought for women to have the right to vote...Yet we can't get past people being gay...Are you fucking kidding me!?!

This is a issue that conservatives love to throw out there...Saying how bad it is...It's wrong, and a sin...They want people to focus on stupid shit like this instead of the important shit...But the problem with these ass-hats is, there is this thing called separation of Church and State...I'm a big believer in this...Yet they always want to try and force their religious beliefs into the political arena...Listen, right and wrong isn't owned by God...I didn't need my 12 years of Catholic schooling to tell me it's wrong to kill some one, or that it's not cool to bang my buddy's wife...

The thing is, most of these dolts don't even know the whole book they put so much faith in...




So please take you religion out of the politics...

As for Avery, anyone who knows about him, shouldn't be surprised by him supporting gay rights...The guy spends half his time in the Hockey world, and the other half in the Fashion world...Of course he has gay friends, just like I do...I've been in the restaurant business since I was 13, I know plenty of gay people and guess what...It's not something they choose...They are born that way...Yes, there are some gals who may get drunk and give it whirl for an evening, but that's not choosing to be gay, that's choosing to be hot and give us guys something for the spank bank!

What is surprising, is the amount of support Avery has gotten...People who can't stand this guy, have done their own tweeting, and blogging, and had his back...Holy shit, there may still be hope for us in this world...Is this a sign that there could be some level of tolerance if a gay player came out in professional sports?

I'm not sure about that....And I doubt Sean Avery will see much of this support as next season begins...I'm sure he'll be getting blasted with non-stop 'fag' comments...

In some sad news, Rangers thumper Derek Boogard (28) was found dead this weekend...The reason is still unknown and we may not know for a couple weeks...Boogard was signed by the Rangers as a free agent this past season...I wasn't happy about the contract, because it was too much money for a guy who only fought well...But he won Rangers fans over quickly, choosing to wear #94 in honor of the Rangers 1994 Stanley Cup Champion team...He also dove right into a number of Rangers' charity events...

Boogard only played in 22 games this year and missed most of the season dealing with serious post concussion problems...His family will be donating his brain to Boston University's School of Medicine, which has been leading in the research of concussions sustained by athletes...

Now with that, I'll end with a song that seems fitting with our earlier topic...




Have a week...

Later, The Beeze.
