So, the Beyonce halftime show is leading us straight to Hell and movie violence causes school shootings?

I keep hearing certain things from some fellow Conservatives that I just cannot agree with.

No, not opposition to abortion. Abortion on demand is a grotesque violation of the most basic human right.

No,  not their opposition to needless, and pointless new gun laws. The right to self-defense is also a basic human right that the left wishes to destroy, and disarming the people is the end game of the Left

Their desire to abide by our Constitution? Again no. The biggest problem in America is that we have stopped obeying the Constitution frankly

Their opposition to the runaway spending orgy this nation is on? No, the irresponsible fiscal policies, waste, fraud, and corruption is destroying our nation

Their outrage that freedom of religion is under assault by radical Atheists? Nope! They are right to push back against those miscreants, and frankly, we should push back even harder.

So what is left? Support of Israel? No, I am rock solid in supporting Israel. Any nation that attacks Israel should know that Israel will respond and that we will support Israel. Ad yes, if that means our military joins Israel in putting boots in asses then so be it!

Border security? No, the border security issue at a national security and national sovereignty issue. Without borders that are secured, we are at risk of eventually losing our national sovereignty.

No, the issue that drives me nutty at times is those Conservatives who wish to place blame for violence, criminal violence on movies, or video games. I will make my case in the simplest way possible. No normal person watches a movie, or plays a video game and then goes out and emulates the violence therein. Anyone who would is mentally ill, and could get the “idea” to commit a violent act from just about anything. We call crazy people crazy for a reason you know. Saying we should “crack down” on movies, or video games makes as much sense as cracking down on the right of law-abiding Americans to own guns, yes, Liberals, even guns that look scary.

Then there are those that seem to be too easily offended. take the Super Bowl halftime yesterday. Beyonce performed, and, while her music is not my favorite, I can appreciate her talent, what a voice, and her energy. I keep reading how “racy” her show was. Oh and did you SEE what she was wearing? So, in fairness I watched it again. And, I am sorry, but if you think that show was over the top, or slutty, or trashy, I just do not get it. I saw nothing overtly sexual, or distasteful. Maybe someone can explain to me what was so objectionable? Seriously, someone clear this up for me.

  1. I RESPECTUFULLY DISAGREE:

    http://astuteblogger.blogspot.com/2013/02/super-bowl-half-time-review-i-love.html

    I THINK IT WAS SLEAZY AND DEGRADING AND DID NOT SHOWCASE BEYONCE’S BEAUTY, OR ENORMOUS TALENT.

    IT WAS EMBLEMATIC OF THE DEGRADING SEXUALIZATION OF FEMININITY SINCE THE SEXUAL REVOLUTION, SO CALLED.

    IT WAS NOT FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT.

    NOT MUCH ON PRIME TIME TV IS ANYMORE.

    THIS REVEALS A LOT ABOUT THE STATE OF OUR CULTURE.

    LUVYA!

    • Well her music does not generally show her great voice, such is “Pop Music” where style and flash reign over quality. As to the “sleaze” factor, I just see that differently I guess. I will link you in the post though, thanks

  2. I usually agree with you Doug, but on this one, I have to respectfully disagree. Beyonce is a role model for young girls. The show she put on last night just wasn’t something I’d want my young granddaughters to watch and emulate.

    • Well, would I allow a younger girl I was the guardian of to dress or dance like that no. Do I think she acted slutty, no, not really. Madonna now, or some other “entertainers” are way over the top, I will certainly agree there.

    • I agree,. It is what level of violence. I have played, DOOM, Quake, and other “shooter games” So have millions of others, who never acted anything out. I suppose what I am saying is that the healthy mind can differentiate between reality and fantasy. If those games had just been blood spatter fests, they would have turned me off.
