You ever get one of those shuddering feelings that run up your spine when someone you do not know very well places their hands on you?
We Americans like our personal space. It is indicative of our personal values. We like the fact that we are free and unencumbered, and we do not like people with whom we do not know on a personal and perhaps more so, on an intimate basis, to “lay hands” upon us.
It goes right along with practicing good hygiene and with being respectful toward others.
There are those politicians who like the laying on of hands. They want to reach out and touch us. Thing is, some of us would prefer to choose who it is that touches us, and further who it is we decide to touch.
When someone, especially someone from a position of leadership, decides to, say, put their hands on your shoulders, it is a sign that they somehow feel superior to you.
It is degrading. Like body odor in a confined space, say on an airplane or an elevator, it just “creeps you out”.
I’ve seen a couple of articles this morning that discuss pornography. Now there is a real violation of personal space if I’ve ever seen one. Esepcially since the study defines the primary user of the stuff as being between the ages of 11 and 18.
I guess those guys who practice this violation of personal space want to get the young people indoctrinated to those violations at an early age.
Anytime you are compelled to run and take a shower, I would say that the cause of such feelings represents a true violation of personal space (in this case, it is an affront to the eyes and to the soul – how more personal can one get?).
There are some violations that you simply can not wash off.
Already the left is flexing its muscle and demonstrating to all its insidious nature. It is proving that its main purpose is to drill its way into our lives, and even into our souls.
Putting their hands on us, digging into our space, trying their damndest to convince us that they are our friends and deserving of sharing our personal space is somehow going to benefit us in some way.
Well, you’d better be careful about laying your hands on some of us; some of us have few aversions to responding to such trespasses on our personal sovereignty with some “touchy-feeliness” of our own.
It is time you “leaders” on the left begin showing some respect for others, particularly where personal space is concerned, but more, where our personal lives and values are concerned.
What business is it of yours to take our hard-earned tax dollars and spend it overseas to lay your filthy hands on pure and innocent, unborn children?
What right do you have to lay your hands on the minds of youth by inundating them with your vile pornography and worse, pornographic mindset?
What right have you to lead us?
I remember from the movie “Braveheart” how an English King decided to “lay hands” on the wives of those magnificent Scotsmen.
There was, of course, a reaction.
It is time in this nation that people who claim to be “in charge” begin demonstrating that they in fact have some respect for others.
As the saying goes up in the hills, “you take to petting wolves and you may draw back a stump”.
Respect is such an important thing. If you wish to earn the respect of others, then you must first demonstrate respect especially where our personage is concerned.
It is only good, common sense to be mindful of respect in the utmost degree and especially so if you take to petting those wolves my mountain brethren speak of. About the only thing they respect is their God-ordained ability to run wild, free and unenslaved by the “regulation” of man.
But isn’t this really what it all boils down to? The left is most interested in controlling every aspect of our lives. They want us on a leash, to domesticate us, to subjugate us to their thinking. A part of me believes that they are just naive enough to believe that there can be some good that will come of putting leashes on wolves.
No good will come of that.
So a piece of advice to all those now ascending to their perceived “thrones of power” – keep your hands to youself and most especially off our children.
