Equality? No. Proportionate.

4% chose.. and want "equality". Yet again the priorities of the country, the entertainment industry, the government, and spending, is out of whack.

VERY few people (by percentage) care about anyone being straight, or gay, or quadrasexual. As usual, in modern America, if you are vocal enough, you earn perks, special treatment, attention, Liberal sympathy, and so much more. Grants. Scholarships.

Equal rights are great. Glory be to equal rights.

BUT... does anyone in their right and/or logical mind think it means splitting the pie "evenly"? I believe it means splitting it up PROPORTIONATELY.

Equal rights means that the black man and the brown man has exactly the same chance at something.

Equal rights means the woman and the man have exactly the same possibility of gaining a position or a goal

I firmly believe that all equality initiatives, affirmative action mechanisms and attempts to force equal access to all businesses, jobs, etc, should be ABOLISHED.

Just because there is bias does NOT mean we need to give extra to the ones who complain INSTEAD OF working hard and becoming whatever they want to. A portion DO JUDGE by a skin tone - - why should we pay taxes to put them in check?

Equality means NO SPECIAL TREATMENT. One way OR the other.

The world is not "fair". America was not built or conceived to be a place that makes "everything fair".

Growing up, the footbsll teams and multiole other organizations in high school received real budgets and support. My close friends and I in the Computer Club had to huddle around a couple of comouters in our Science teacher's back room. THIS WAS DISCRIMINATORY AND DETRIMENTAL TO OUR INTELLECTUAL and SOCIAL UPBRINGING. And yes, more computers were possible and even present elsewhere, but inaccesdible to us.

# I demand financial compensation for what MORE I could have done with my life with proper support back then

~ Oh. Wait. I never even finished college and yet I am a far greater asset than most computer people I've ever known - because I worked my butt off, lived breathed and carved my way into the successful person I am now. Huh.

# I demand that any employer who chooses a Jock over a Geek be held accountable

~ Oh. Wait. This evolved over time and fixed itself as people similar to me PROVED THEIR WORTH - instead of whining for a chance. Huh.

# I demand EQUAL EXPOSURE (not proportionate) for my kind in media, government and high-level jobs.

~ Oh. Wait. We pretty much dominate media now, have many of our kind in government (many more to come), and when we aren't the ones actually creating the companies and becoming billionaires, we are usually one of the main reasons why companies ARE so successful. Huh.

DANG IT. Why didn't we get equal treatment? For some of us, it didn't matter. We loved what we were doing. Others, they learned either through schooling, practice, or both.

I'm a white straight male, so, let the vocal-minority attacks begin.

I'm proud that no handouts came my way.

What are you?

Poll shows Americans think 25 percent of the population are lesbians or gay men. The actual figure: less than 4 percent.

Equal vs proportional is a moot point in my opinion. Government and other organizations with their agendas should just butt out in general and let the market run itself.

I'm not saying that government doesn't (or shouldn't) play a crucial role in economics because it does and it should, and there's absolutely a place for governmental regulation, but, in my opinion regulation and artificial maniuplation of the market as they exist today go well beyond what they should be doing.

Equal opportunity, and preventing employers from discriminating based on age, sex, race, etc is something I'm absolutely fine with. Discrimination is something nobody should have to deal with, but on the flip side there shouldn't be programs that say we don't have enough people from demographic "X" in profession "Y". When you start artificlally manipulating the market, you're essentially implementing "reverse discrimination" by giving those groups that are less represented advantages over everyone else to try and build their representation within that particular group.

That obviously sounds good to some people, but to me, this makes no sense. If a particular group is underrepresented, there's a reason for it. Trying to "fix" it means ignoring that underlying reason, whatever it is, which I think is a flawed idea at the economics 101 level.

I want to believe this, but I don't yet.
Yesterday's announcement that Fox had struck a deal with Marvel that allowed them to produce two TV shows led to many wondering what the latter got in return. Well, we may just have found out! UPDATE: Silver Surfer, Galactus, Doctor Doom included in deal...

I feel very badly for this man, because I take marriage very seriously. However, he did absolutely the right thing based on the evidence given here.

GOOD JOB, DUDE. , you deserve to be loved and appreciated the way anybody in a marriage should be.

And the Conservatives said, "duh".

While the Liberals screamed, "NOOOOOOOOOO!! We need to save all of the children! We need to put new laws up to stop this abomination from happening! SAVE THE CHILDREN! Turn them into namby pambies at all costs!"

The practice of letting a baby cry it out, or cry until the child drifts off to sleep, does not cause long-term emotional or behavior harm, according to a new study.

Dear America.

Did you know that you do not have to provide proof of citizenship to vote in our country?

It must be true. A judge said so.

I don't understand why anybody outside of America would look at our country as some kind of leader, or an example of freedom and democracy. We're turning into a joke.

And it appears to me to be because there is a non politician who is shaking the foundation of political correctness... excuse me... corruptness.

Story
Tagline
Computer, comics and music geek, born and raised.
Introduction
A COMPUTER GEEK born and raised, who raised four children on his own (they all survived and are thriving nicely, thank you) - affectionately known as the Mighty Four.  Currently working as a Salesforce and MicroStrategy Architect, Administrator and Developer.. 

A COMIC BOOK COLLECTOR since childhood. Marvel and DC mainly. There are too many "others" now to keep track. ROM Spaceknight is still the best character ever created. Collecting comics is a great diversion, and keeps the kid in me alive. 

 A CHILDHOOD MUSICIAN who chose to pursue computers as his life's ambition (probably a wise decision) but who misses the performing arts tremendously. I still enjoy the occasional stage play or performance at my childrens' schools. 

 A LOYAL FRIEND, an obsessive-compulsive SEMI-PERFECTIONIST (that's supposed to sound ironic), and an opinionated but open-minded TECHNOPHILE.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (Who watches the watchmen?) (Juvenal, 50-150 AD) 

We have just enough religion to make us hate, but not enough to make us love one another. (Johnathan Swift, 1700s AD) 

Where words fail, music speaks. (Hans Christian Anderson, 1800s AD) 

I seek not to know the answers, but to understand the questions. (Kwai Chang Caine, Kung Fu, 1972)

The avalanche has already begun. It's too late for the pebbles to vote. (Kosh, Babylon 5, 2257 AD)

Five card stud, nothing wild... and the sky's the limit. (Jean-Luc Picard, ST:TNG, 2371 AD)

Denny's in general is "good" and has decent prices. Their big advantage is many of them are open 24 hours. Unfortunately, the service in 2014 and 2015 at the Port Orange, Florida Denny's has been horrible, especially between 10pm and 6am, when I frequently (used to) to there. I still go occasionally, because I work weird hours frequently from home, and it's all there is unless I want to travel a few miles to somewhere that only has Drive-Thru (Wendy's, Taco Bell, Krystal, etc). When I go, I do not expect great service, so that I am not disappointed. It's a decent price and it's open 24 hours. (shrug)

OneCare in Daytona Beach, Florida, is not the kind of business you want to give your money to. Highly unprofessional, untrained, bad attitudes, and they make assumptions based on information not given to them. In other words, they make up information and then hold you accountable for it..
