Common Sense and Darwinism

Now, before you think that I believe in Evolution over Creation – I don’t. God made the planet just as it’s laid out in Genesis.

But, true Darwinian Evolution (which is actually Devolution) does exist – as in those characteristics which hurt the ability of one individual of a species to survive over another individual will reduce a population to a limited group which has the ability to survive in their environment. There is no new sudden leaps up and forward as most Evolutionists would love to have you believe that Darwin spoke about.

Anyways. I thought about this as I heard a funny statistic – there were 21 swift water rescues in the Tucson area last night. Now it’s quite common to have one or two, as there is always that one person who gets caught off guard… But 21?

Then I got to thinking…what has happened to common sense? I think Darwin is the answer. See, it used to be 150, 100, even 50 years ago, when one made a bad choice, the chance of survival (and thusly reproduction) were slim. Thanks to the wonders of modern medicine, however…Darwinian Devolution has been slowed, possibly even halted, allowing those lacking the survival instincts necessary to apply common sense to their environment to not only survive, but to thrive. Want proof? Google “adrenaline junkie”.

Now, I’m not advocating we stop rescuing and healing the common sense impaired…

But I am warning people that we are just going to continue to see more and more and more stupid…

FW: History made easy and so true………

I did not create this, it was one of many email forwards, but was so funny, had to keep it before I passed it on.
Lesson
For those that don’t know about history. Here is a condensed version:
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1. Liberals, and
2. Conservatives.
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can was invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That’s how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to B-B-Q at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement.
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly B-B-Q’s and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. The rest became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided. 
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal    on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food is standard liberal fare. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most liberal women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn’t fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly MGD or Sam Adams. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big-game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots, database/computer programmers and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America.  They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today’s lesson in world history.

Some Great Video Of "Right Wing Extremists!"

Just two quick links, as embedding them just slows down the works…

First off are my videos I took that day:  http://www.youtube.com/user/thebigshmoog
And then some great videos JonJustice took that day: http://www.youtube.com/user/1041TheTruth
Just keep asking yourself… we had this many people turn up, on a day where it was 109 degrees… how do we get this kind of enthusiasm to translate into votes on election day?
The Democrats pulled up in a rickety old bus. They DROVE in protesters. They’ll do the same on election day. This is what ACORN does. Ask yourself what YOU can do to counter that kind of drive and ambition to fill the polls. Can you drive in a neighbor or 3 to ensure THEY vote on election day? Will you go door to door over the next few weeks and hand out voter registrations to those independent conservatives that haven’t bothered to go to the library themselves to get a voter registration? Will you put a bumper sticker on your car? Will you post something on your facebook or twitter stream every so often so your friends get to meet the candidates  over the internet?

My Open Letter To Those That Attended The Giffords Protest

This is a response to a thread on Facebook regarding ‘why bother giving time or money to the candidates? All they talk about is what is wrong with Tucson.’

…That’s interesting, because I just listened to all four of the Tucson City Council candidates (or their reps) at the LD 30 picnic today. They all spoke positively about Tucson and it’s future. Unfortunately you can’t fix something, unless you know how it is broken. [The candidates] know that, a few of us know that, but there are A LOT of people that still do not understand just how broken of a system we have here in Tucson. What [the candidates] need now is help to get their positive message out about how they will fix the broken system. When you go to the auto mechanic and he walks in, he doesn’t list everything that is right with the car, does he? No, he starts with what is wrong, THEN he tells you how he is going to FIX IT. That is what they are speaking to now. To that end, I am walking for Shaun this Saturday, so that he can get his message of ‘city-repair’ out to the voters. Have you committed to doing something positive for change in this city yet? Have you given your donation to them, so they can get their message out? Have you followed them around to a few public speeches to listen to them? If youhave, then great – talk to THEM and give them feedback. Constructive criticism is always appreciated. Harping on what they are doing wrong? That merely plays into the laize-faire attitude of the undecided voter, who once again says “why bother voting?”

If you are not a part of the solution, you are a part of the problem.
