I’m so sick of this constant drum beating, I don’t even watch the news anymore. I don’t give a cr@p about what side anyone is on, and we’ve been over this ground before. I’m not even going to write a post this week…I’m just too tired of the constant and disgusting acrimony. Here are my thoughts on the whole thing – a review of my previous posts (too many on this subject already):

The First Amendment – Rights (or wrongs…): “Inalienable rights” Really?
By Jim Kuiken - 5/10/2015
I’ve written so many uplifting, happy, patriotic, informative and useful articles in the past, but the fact that this keeps popping up on such a regular (and actually, growing) basis is completely disheartening to me. I have no problem with people peacefully and lawfully expressing their opinions, whether I agree with them or not. As I’ve said, I fought, bled, and many of my friends died, to uphold that right.
Unlawful and violent actions (from any “side”) should be immediately punished to the full extent of the law, using the most serious charges possible based on the action.
Enough with placating, appeasing, and bowing to violence and extremism – from the left to the right, the top to the bottom, and anywhere in between. Period.
I think it’s time I hang out my Gone Fishing sign, and try to find some Peace – away from all these violent, unhinged idiots.
