It's a Disturbation Nation Thing...enjoy yourselves

Dear America,

we're gonna just finish this rough week suggesting a new word to describe our latest fixation:  DISTURBATION  
[oh I know lady spell check...it's not a word...sue me]

Disturbing doesn't say the half of it -- while the lack of self-control to re-direct the conversation to the greater good seems futile in this moment.

Remember when just the sound of it -- socialized medicine -- made our skin crawl?  All of us -- republican or democrat, independent or green -- everyone -- from every party, seemed to agree that nowhere in America was either the time or the place to introduce the idea, let alone allow it to enter the house that independence built.

And yet look at us now -- talk about social media, social justice, and social services meeting up with the social agenda of the Obamacare age.   Intermingling people's sex lives, and the free expression and responsibilities thereof -- how much more social can we get?  We are entering a brand new age of self-discovery and experimentation, aren't we?

So this week, Sandra Fluke became the face of the new American girl -- supposedly an improvement on the original design.   This girl -- Sandra -- is certainly making it sound reasonable, isn't she?   Let's just replace personal responsibility everywhere and often; it is our divine right, right?  Let's begin with conception and contraception.  We are entitled to it.  How disturbing.

Who cares if it takes away the liberty of an entire segment of population still completely anchored in faith, along with the familiar cornerstones of American life, like self-reliance and good self-government? f$%k religious freedom.   The ones who are made out to look crazy are the ones who cling too tight to their religion and their guns.   It's a narrative that keeps on giving for the Left.  So much for tolerance, huh. How disturbing.

Especially considering one of the examples Sandra mentioned to congress included a need for contraception not for the explicit prevention/protection from pregnancy, but as part of a gynecological treatment; and to make it more perfectly clear, while name dropping a pet interest quite popular among the Lefties -- Sandra added that this example of a girl happens to be gay.  So taxpayers must pay for contraception, not to be used as contraception?  How disturbing.

Alas, and yet another story we haven't even had time to mention this week seems to fall right in line with where our minds are wandering.  It's about another kind of girl America seems to be making these days; a stupid girl out of Michigan who just so happened to get lucky one day.  Oh, she won the lottery; but the poor girl -- she was down and out and on food stamps in the days leading up to her big take.

And just how does this fairy tale end? She took the cash with a kiss and a lump sum.  But as this story unravels, she continued to take the food stamps anyway.  She won a million dollars -- and, as the little darling points out -- she didn't think she was doing anything wrong by staying on the dole.  How disturbing is that?

"I thought they would cut me off, but since they didn’t, I thought maybe it was OK because I’m not working,” she said. “I feel that it’s OK because I have no income, and I have bills to pay. I have two houses.”  for more on this story, go to the Christian Science Monitor website, here.

When pressed to answer a few questions, Ms. Clayton was like, 'wow...so much of it [a million dollars] went to pay taxes.'  As if she was shocked at the tax rate, or something.   Ya think, Amanda? 

So here's a girl who does nothing more than buy a dollar lottery ticket, and she's bitching about her taxes.

Now dear mandy --  imagine the entrepreneur -- someone who puts up the risk to grow a business from scratch who finally reaches the day when they make it... I mean EARN their first million dollars.  Picture their face when they write that check to the IRS.      yeah, ya get it now, huh.

Oh, but nooooo -- you feel entitled to keep on keepin' on; the money's just too darned good; the food stamp pimp keeps you livin' the dream, the lifestyle you've become accustomed to...and besides, like you said, it's not like you have a job or nothin'...just a couple of houses. say what?

How disturbing.
Just how much more disturbing can this week get?   Just how much more disturbing can we get?  Isn't this nation of entitlement funding simply getting a little out of hand?   [cue a little nasty purr here]

We've been more fixated on the temporal, empty symptoms, than upon the deeper, collective loss of respect, personal responsibility and self-reliance.

More and more, we are showing less self-control -- letting our personal urges dictate the whole of society.

Is this what defines us now?

We are the US of Disturbia, totally preoccupied with disturbation.  And then again, maybe it's just me. 

"Socialism is the philosophy of failure, 
the creed of ignorance, 
and the gospel of envy; 
its inherent virtue 
is the equal sharing of misery."  
Winston Churchill

I know I'm just a girl, and all.
I have faults, I don't know everything and 
sometimes nothing;
I still have much to learn.
but me thinks eventually... 
we will run out of other people's money.
none of us will feel very good about ourselves
we'll stop making anything of value --
starting at conception

like as in,
we are all stardust now.
throwing in one more stupid girl
just for kicks and giggles...
Miley Cyrus*

I'm gonna shut up now.

Make it a Good Day, G

 oh and just to be clear --
I am not holier than thou --
just fully aware of my own limitations
conjoined with God's grace.
I know where to go when I am torn,
lost, twisted or conflicted...
and when happy, too...
completely joyful
and at peace

* "You are all stardust. You couldn't be here if stars hadn't exploded, because the elements (carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, all the things that matter for evolution) weren't created at the beginning of time,'" Cyrus quoted. "'They were created in stars. So forget Jesus. Stars died so you can live."
