The Sunshine Civil Libertarian.

In my now forty years I have honestly never met a person left, right or in-between who did not claim to be a staunch defender of Civil Liberties.  With that said I have also never met a person who is honestly a true defender of Civil Liberties.  To those who are currently gasping in outrage please continue reading and you may understand my point… maybe, but probably not.  For those easily offended be warned, there is incredibly foul and offensive language in this blog posting… oddly enough something protected as free speech.  Printing foul language is something rare for me I know but you will understand why.

Starve the military! Feed the hungry!

Every so often a person is confronted with the type of naïve bleeding heart idiocy that you are only left shaking your head and wondering how it is a person who considers themselves to be rational can come up with such an argument.  This was a recent experience in my life.  To start off I’m ex-military, my son is in the Army, my father is a vet as is my grandfather multiple aunts and uncles.  Several cousins are active duty or ex-military so I am not completely unbiased in my opinion.  Oh and I function using something I like to call facts and logic so that also impacts my views on such silliness.
