Two Wolves — From An Old Newspaper

One evening an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside all people.  Two Wolves

He said, “My son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.

“One is Evil. It is anger, envy jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.

“The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.”

The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather: “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”

Remembering Tasso da Silveira School

Two years ago today, April 7, 2011, Wellington Oliveira used a .38 revolver and a .32 revolver to murder 12 children and wound 12 others at  Tasso da Silveira Municipal School in Rio de Janerio.

Brazil has strict gun control making it very difficult for law-abiding people to own or carry a firearm.

Gun control does not stop evil people. It does stop good people from stopping the evil of evil people.

Jeremy Irons Gay Marriage Open Debate

Jeremy Irons Gay Marriage Open Debate — Actor Jeremy Irons mused some concerns about gay marriage that actually got to the heart of the issue, namely money.

I mean tax-wise it’s an interesting one, because you see, could a father not marry his son?” Irons said.

Steve Colbert, who is a major source of news for Democrats and low-information types  immediately missed the point and began merciless mocking.

So, if gay marriage is legalized in England, Jeremy Irons’ son Max, get ready to make your father the happiest man alive!” he said.

Mocking is about the only response supporters of gay marriage have. That and twisting the motivations of opponents.

Few, and nobody serious, wants to prohibit ceremonies. They are private. matters of speech and protected by the First Amendment.

The issue is the money part. For instance, if a father marries his son, as Irons noted, the son escapes paying inheritance taxes. He might even be eligible for other tax breaks, health coverage and certain survivor benefits not originally expected to go to adult children.

Now, some may — like Colbert —  say that a father marrying his son is  silly and  unfair and violates the spirit of this compassionate policy. So explain the rational as to why two unrelated men should be allowed these breaks?

With a widow whose work consisted of bearing and raising children rather than pulling in an income it should be obvious as to why she should get them but clueless and callous one-percenters — like Colbert — have the ability to insulate themselves, at least for the short term, from the consequences of the policies they push. They fail to comprehend the very good reasons why social norms and traditions developed. And except for sneers and mocking, they will be unable to provide a good answer as to why two gay men should be allowed the civil benefits bestowed upon a man and woman who have joined together for the serious and difficult job of creating the future.
