Straight Pride

By: Nancy Morgan

As more and more Americans identify themselves through their sexual orientation, I’d like to weigh in on the side of heterosexuality. There, I said it. I’m straight. Sexually speaking, this means that I don’t sleep with members of my own sex.

Of course, who I sleep with is no-one’s business. Unless I’m a health hazard or something. And of course, what I do in my own bedroom used to be confined to my bedroom. Key word being “used to.”

Call me an old fuddy duddy, but I just can’t wrap my mind around gleefully advertising my most personal sexual practices. Call it modesty, or plain old good manners, but I believe that my privates were meant to be private.

In an era that increasingly promotes gender as being an optional life-style choice, I want to be one of the first to say I like plain old fashioned sex with members of the opposite sex. And being, gasp, Christian, I believe love and respect are pre-requisites to jumping in the sack. Color me outdated.

One’s sexuality is pretty much fair game these days. It’s one of the few ways left to garner one’s 15-minutes of fame. After all, how many ways are left to push the envelope – to show how “with it” one is? I fully expect we’ll soon have a new reality show designed around contestant’s sexual practices. The sex lives of pathetic attention seekers will be scrutinized and commented on for all the world to see. Peeping Toms, instead of being arrested, will be crucial in determining which sex act is the most outrageous. Sexual Survivor?

The left has legitimized the art of self-absorption. Naval gazing and “personal truths” have replaced modesty and restraint. Hooking up with strangers has replaced dating. And if you prefer to keep the details of your sex life private, you might just be branded a homophobe.

Sadism, gay sex and bondage are just a few of the sexual practices that are now considered legitimate. In fact, anything to do with sex is now applauded as being the product of introspection and heightened personal awareness. Today it’s almost mandatory to affect a cavalier attitude about what many consider a sacred act.

Before it becomes a hate-crime, I’d like to weigh in with my own opinion:

Many (not all) gay people make me uneasy. Not because they’re gay, but because they make their sexuality the focus of their whole lives and demand that I not only accept their homosexuality, but condone it. Anything less is labeled homophobia.

I don’t hate gays, I just resent having their bedroom habits pushed into my face on a daily basis. I consider that rude. It’s also none of my business. I believe a person is more than a sexual identity.

I’m one of those old-fashioned prudes who believes in modesty and discretion in all things sexual. According to the left, this makes me a hater. They’re half right – I do hate being forced to conform to someone else’s idea of what sexuality is.

The whole gay pride movement leaves me confused. If, as many gays assert, being homosexual is a function of genetics, then why should one take pride in it? That would be like me taking pride in being born with two arms. Which, of course, comes with the implicit assumption that being born with one arm is somehow “lesser than.” Couldn’t I be sued under ADA? Sigh.

I’m a straight, heterosexual woman. Not that that is anyone’s business. I could write volumes about the joys of traditional sex, but I choose not to. I prefer to keep my sexual proclivities a private matter. I just wish everyone else would do the same.

I’ve been warning SurvivalBlog readers for more than four years about derivatives trading. And now there are now some troubling indicators that there could be a derivatives implosion and/or a credit collapse in the near future:

1.) SurvivalBlog reader Steve K. mentioned this article: Bond insurer Ambac files for bankruptcy. Steve commented: “This is a very, very big problem for the global financial system as Ambac was a huge player in Credit Default Swaps, Mortgage Backed Securities and all other derivatives. It’s all about counter party risk!

2.) Zero Hedge recently summed up the almost inconceivably enormous overhang of derivatives: According to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s Quarterly Report on Bank Trading and Derivatives Activities for the Second Quarter 2010 (most recent), the notional value of derivatives held by U.S. commercial banks is around $223.4 TRILLION. It is estimated that 95% of these contracts are held by just five banks.

3.) Michael Snyder recently wrote a piece for Business Insider wherein he listed 11 signs we’re on the verge of a global currency crisis.

4.) Our friend Chris Martenson just posted this: Alert: QE II Has Lit the Fuse

With those predictions in mind, to quote a song….”Hope you have got your things together!”

Communists Worked in Patty Murray’s Campaign

By: Trevor Loudon
New Zeal

The Communist Party USA now barely tries to hide the fact that it has heavily infiltrated the Democratic Party.

One communist who is shameless in his support for the Democrats is Tim Wheeler, former editor of the People’s World.

While mainly resident in Baltimore, Tim Wheeler grew up on a dairy farm near Sequim, Washington, the son of lifelong Party member and one time O.S.S. officer and Soviet spy, Donald Niven Wheeler.

Tim Wheeler, with his wife and comrade Joyce Wheeler, was back in his home town recently campaigning for leftist Democratic Party Senator Patty Murray.

Tim Wheeler, third from left.

Tim Wheeler writes in the People’s World:

The highest profile election victory here Nov. 2 was the reelection of Sen. Patty Murray. She defeated Republican Dino Rossi by more than 100,000 votes.

I was asked to coordinate street-corner “waves” for Murray here in my hometown. We could tell Murray was doing well by the number of motorists, especially women, who honked and gave us the thumbs-up salute, far outnumbering the Republicans who gave us a sour look and the thumbs-down.

My wife Joyce and I spent one afternoon canvassing for Murray up on Bell Hill, where my family once owned a dairy farm. It is now crowded with luxury homes with panoramic views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and Mount Baker.

One wealthy resident told me she had already mailed in her ballot, marked for Patty Murray, and was “praying for our country,” that voters reject the lies of the rightwing demagogues. I told her that in my youth, I herded cows on what is now her front lawn…

Washington State voters helped put up a firewall against the ultra-right in reelecting Murray, blocking a GOP majority takeover of the Senate. Victory was won when the coalition of unions and other progressive organizations succeeded in getting out the vote.

In early 2008, Tim Wheeler, his wife Joyce and another Communist Party USA couple Jim Baldridge and Margaret Baldridge, were all active members of Party “friend” Barack Obama’s Baltimore operation – organizing canvassing, phone banking and general campaign work.

Tim Wheeler and his friend Rev. Pierre L. Williams of Baltimore, also canvassed for Obama in South Carolina in January 2008:

It is chilly and threatening rain but the media is predicting a record voter turnout of people fired up by Obama’s message of hope. I rode down from Baltimore on a bus with 40 other volunteers. It was chartered by three members of the Maryland General Assembly who have kept us working diligently since we arrived. Nights we sleep on the gymnasium floor of the Y, strewn with mostly youthful volunteers from as far away as California…

I have been canvassing with a friend, Rev. Pierre Williams, a United Methodist minister in Baltimore. We got a vivid feel for just how deeply Obama’s message is resonating here going door-to-door in a working class neighborhood yesterday.”

Tim Wheeler doesn’t say it, but Rev. Williams is a member of the Communist Party’s Religious Commission.

So dedicated to his Christian mission was Pierre Williams, that he was convicted in 1999 of defrauding the United States Department of Education by using false social security numbers in order to secure $29,500 in guaranteed student loans. Specifically, Williams pled guilty to one count of Student Assistance Fraud before the Honorable Thomas F. Hogan of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia.

The student loan was to fund Williams’ master’s degree in Divinity at the Wesley Theological Seminary.

Yep, sons of spies, communists and “Christian” fraudsters – the backbone of today’s Democratic Party.
