It's My Body, And I'll Cry If I Want To

[Warning: This article contains adult content. If you have not fully matured, then you really need to read this.]

Victims of the so-called "war on women" whine, "It's my body!" That may be true, but they never finish the sentence: "It's my body, and it's my responsibility to care properly for it."

If you're going to treat your body like an amusement park, then it's up to you to perform the necessary care and maintenance. It's up to you (or the riders) to provide the resources and upkeep. Not me; not anyone else. It isn't my job to take care of the unintended consequences, or put innocent victims out of your misery after one of your cock-ups (pun partially intended).

Actually, if you are going to demand that someone else contribute to the care and feeding of your body, then it really isn't your body anymore! It belongs to all of us who subsidize it, and all your bases are belong to us! There are strings attached, and we (the people) can tell you what you can and cannot do with it. We could even justifiably demand the use of it.*

If it annoys you to receive this message from a man, then here's a video by Chicks on the Right to spell it out for you.

But here's the bottom line: My money and my property represents the time from my life that it took to earn it -- including the time and resources it took to acquire the skills to earn it. Time out of my life that I'll never get back. I made the effort. Taking that wealth from me without my express consent is akin to taking part of my life: partial murder. It's why theft is considered immoral and illegal. It's also why redistribution of wealth should also be considered nothing less. It's your body and your life. Your responsibility. Accept it!

*Rush Limbaugh called these people "sluts", but that is evidently not politically correct anymore, and he had to apologize. Actually, if you're demanding money, it's really worse than "slut", but I won't say that either. I'll just say "slave" instead. Congratulations, slave! Here's your contraceptives! Call the plantation office if you need a free abortion!

We need more teachers like this one, with the guts to speak out. Even if Common Core was a great thing, she should not be threatened with loss of her job for speaking out on any political issue. This is not the same as badmouthing your employer in public.

How Many Statists Does It Take To Change a Light Bulb?

Stolen from facebook:

I don't like CFLs. I do like LEDs, but I think the free market is quite adequate for moving people to more efficient, environmentally friendly lighting. Government mandates are completely illiberal and unnecessary.
