The Free Thought Project,The Daily Sheeple & FREEDOM OR ANARCHY Campaign of Conscience are dedicated to holding those who claim authority over our lives accountable. “Each of us has a unique part to play in the healing of the world.”
“Every record has been destroyed or falsified, every book rewritten, every picture has been repainted, every statue and street building has been renamed, every date has been altered. And the process is continuing day by day and minute by minute. History has stopped. Nothing exists except an endless present in which the Party is always right.” - George Orwell, 1984

"Until the philosophy which holds one race superior and another inferior is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned, everywhere is war and until there are no longer first-class and second-class citizens of any nation, until the color of a man's skin is of no more significance than the color of his eyes. And until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race, there is war. And until that day, the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship, rule of international morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued, but never attained... now everywhere is war." - - Haile Selassie I of Ethiopia - Popularized by Bob Marley in the song War

STEALING FROM THE CITIZENRY

The right to tell the Government to kiss my Ass Important Message for All Law Enforcers Freedom; what it is, and what it is not. Unadulterated freedom is an unattainable goal; that is what the founders of America knew and understood, which was their impetus behind the documents that established our great nation. They also knew that one of the primary driving forces in human nature is the unconscious desire to be truly free. This meant to them that mankind if totally left completely unrestricted would pursue all things in life without any awareness or acknowledgement of the consequences of his/her own actions leaving only the individual conscience if they had one as a control on behavior. This would not bode well in the development of a great society. Yet the founders of America chose to allow men/women as much liberty as could be, with minimum impact on the freedom or liberties of others

End identity politics: Do what you want, be what you are!

Stop running from yourself. Learn to like who you really are, and live

End identity politics: Do what you want, be what you are!


I’m starting to think the growing absurdity in our nation’s culture can be explained by a simple but troubling fact: Far too many people just don’t like who they are. They don’t like their identities.
Take Bruce Jenner, a man who won Olympic gold medals but ultimately decided in his 60s that he “identified” as a woman, and now wants everyone to call him Caitlyn while he struts around in a skirt.
Or take Rachel Dolezal, who became president of the NAACP in the Seattle area while claiming to be black. When it came out that she was actually of the Caucasian persuasion and just made her hair and skin up to look black, she was humiliated but defiant. And now she’s writing a book about racial identity for some reason.
Or take Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who claimed to be part Native American, perhaps because that makes her part of a grievance group considered virtuous by the left. It’s almost as good as when Bill Clinton declared himself the “first black president.” Bill Clinton may be many things, but he is certainly not black. I know black. Check some of those old photos of his paisley white legs in jogging shorts if you have any doubt.
Sometimes we try to alter our identities in more subtle ways. Take Brian Williams. He didn’t pretend not to be a white guy who anchored the news, but he didn’t seem to think that was interesting enough by itself. So he made up a bunch of nonsense that never happened so he could add to his identity: Brian Williams – swashbuckling adventurer!
What a drag when it turned out he was just a guy sitting there reading a teleprompter. At least for him. Most of us pretty much suspected that and didn’t see why it was a problem. But I guess it was for him.
You might know people like this too. I recently heard about a strange-looking guy who hangs out in a coffee shop and tells the baristas he is an undercover FBI agent. If that’s true, I think someone needs to explain the undercover part to him again. But of course, it’s not true. He just thinks it will make him seem more interesting than who he really is.
Remember the Seinfeld episode where someone tells George they’re living a lie? George replies, “Just one? I’m living like twenty.” What made George so funny was that he was so manic, and that’s because he was always trying to outrun the person he actually was – because he didn’t seem to like that person very much.
I’m starting to wonder why so many Americans don’t like their identities. Black conservatives like me often get told we’re Oreos – black on the outside and white on the inside – as if we were trying via our political views to somehow become white people. I always smile and say no, I’m an ABC – an American Black Conservative. That’s my identity, and I can’t imagine trying to run from it. But far too many people are running from who they are, as if you can somehow escape from that. Some people disassociate themselves from their families. Some move to new cities and towns where no one will know them in the hope they can start over and create a new identity. But ultimately none of us can really change our identity, and it seems to me this nation is driving itself crazy trying to accommodate people who are on hopeless quests to do so.
What I wish people would understand is that you can’t change who you are, but you can change what you do. If you’re a short, bald white guy, then do whatever it is you want to do. You probably can’t play in the NBA but you might build a great business or become part of a ministry that helps people. If you’re a black woman from the ghetto and you’d really like to be a businesswoman, but people tell you that’s not what people from the ghetto do, then become a woman from the ghetto who defies those notions.
But you’ll save yourself a lot of time and aggravation if you stop trying to change things that are unchangeable, and focus on what you can actually do. If you’re a man, you can’t make yourself a woman. If you’re white, you can’t make yourself black. If you’re 30 years old, you can’t make yourself 20, or 40. If you’re a politician who grew up in relative comfort with a stable family, you can’t make yourself a poor, oppressed minority from a broken home. That might make for a better story, but it’s not who you are. So just be who you are and work from there.
Maybe this entire country has an identity crisis, and we’re going through insanity because we really don’t like who we are – so we’re trying to change it. Stop that.
Remember that old song by Daryl Hall and John Oates?
Do what you want girl, be what you are
There ain’t no right or wrong way, just a play from the heart
It ain’t a sign of weakness girl to give yourself away
Because the strong give up and move on, while the weak give up and stay
Do what you want to do, but be what you are
I think the point is that you don’t have to change what you are to do what you want to do. But if you’re always running from who you are, you can’t really do what you want, because you’re too busy running from something you can’t ever get away from.
Or to put it less politely: Quit pretending and start living in reality! The whole country needs to do that, but I don’t see how we can do it as a nation if we refuse to do it as individuals.
