Emanon's Gun Politics - Email QuestionsEmanon Gun Politics - Email Questions
I have gotten several emails about my view on guns, while I have written quite extensively about my view on guns, some of these people asked specific questions that I will now answer. I will also be writing a bit more about my interest with guns, as I did in a previous piece but expanding on it…
Understand, most of my especially more left leaning friends do not agree with my views on guns – since most of my followers do tend to be more left leaning I do not expect some of you to agree with me either. That’s fine everyone is entitled to their own view. I may be answering further questions in the comment section as long as it is an actual question.
I will be quoting or paraphrasing some of my other pieces that I have written on guns and will be linking them all in the Artist Comment Section below. Okay, here goes, the questions. Note, I have a habit of extrapolating my answers, so my answers can be a simple yes or no… but
Gay is the new black... my opinionGay is the new black... my opinion4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
[I will be quoting older pieces I have written on gay rights within this piece as well, any piece quoted will say which piece it is from and the piece shall be linked in the Artist Comments
As with many of my pieces, I enjoy, expect and welcome differences of views, but if you are just coming to say the gay agenda is equal to legalizing pedophilia, bestiality, etc. [which has happened on a few previous pieces by the same individual] then please spare me that nonsense and write your own piece where you can spread that ignorance that homosexuals are all pedophiles, and wish to corrupt your children etc..
I am more than happy for comments from those who disagree, but please, and I truly ask you not to come here with the conspiratorial nonsense. If you disagree with gay marriage, GREAT!!! That is your right, if you do not think it should be legalized, GREAT yet when you start then it is wrong because of the bible, as an atheist you must understand if I do
Disagree w/ religion isn't disliking the religiousI previous did a stamp in which I said “disagree is not dislike” speaking to the many, mostly conservatives from what I see, with the tagline “Liberals hate me”.. just because you disagree with someone on certain issues, does not mean that you dislike them as a person. I have several conservative friends that I either disagree with on almost all political issues but they can have a good time outside of that field.. or I may disagree with them on a few issues, and agee with others.Disagree w/ religion isn't disliking the religious1 year ago in Philosophical More Like This
While one would imagine that this is a very simple concept to grasp. I have been seeing some postings on a few pieces on this site, and on youtube videos that I follow about if you are an atheist [agnostic atheist for me] then you must not only disagree with a religion but you must have a deep hatred for the followers of that religion.
I was going to make this into a stamp but I did not like the way it came out so will just write this…
It would seem a simple concept enough.
Gay rights in AmericaGay rights in America5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I was asked to write about gay rights in America. Or rather a friend asked me to write about my personal views on it, asked me to tell of my personal interactions with gays, as well as discuss any gay films I have seem, and anything regarding such things. Unlike many of my other pieces I doubt this will be many pages since I will simply be focusing on one particular issue. The rights of gays in America;
First and foremost I discuss my personal interactions with gays as she put it. I am straight so the laws that will be being discussed here personally will not affect me that are currently in place, yet they do concern us all as people. I am also an atheist so I am not clouded by the bigotry of theistic faiths as it pertains to the entire LGBT community. I have many friends who are homosexuals and I would not give them up for anything
Though in many of my other postings on Deviant art I have went quite in depth about my views on gay marriage and gay rights this
What it means to be an atheistWhat it means to be an atheist5 years ago in Editorial More Like This
I told a friend on here that I would post this and see what happens. Understand that when I say "What it means to be an atheist" I am speaking clearly from my perspective. Some atheists may agree with my stance or world outlook, others may not. That is the great thing about this world, not everyone will agree with you.
First I will say that, as atheists we understand the blind faith of theists. I mean we understand the whole believing in god, and all of that even though we personally have no use for it. You have that amazing luxury of living in such a surrealist style of reality that may border on the lines of insanity.
For me being an atheist means we do not have that luxury, for me it is an easy escape to say, god will do this, god will do that if I pray for it. But for an atheist we do not have that luxury of waiting for a god or some other being to step in and help with the woes of the world. As an atheist I believe it is our job to try and help others whenever poss
you hate black conservatives... um..email questionI just got an email[as always if you want to email me. It is my username (at) gmail.com and put in the subject line deviantart idea or whatever… or pm me here which is a lot easier if you have an account on deviant art vs being linked to this piece from someplace else... ] from someone who apparently follows my stuff on this site. It seems according to this woman, who considers herself according to her email as a “proud, black, conservative republican” that my being a Black [though I am Black, Irish, Native American, Russian, Jewish and German lineage.. but okay…] liberal that I somehow have a hatred for black conservatives because they challenge the foundation that blacks must be loyal to Democrats. They also attack black conservatives as somehow traitors to Black people and that the only true leaders that blacks should follow are Black liberals.you hate black conservatives... um..email question2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This

Race Relations: Judicial- Social - Law EnforcementYesterday I posted something asking to give me new subjects to write about. One of the subjects given was about the George Zimmerman verdict and race in the legal system. I assume this person, with respect of the trial and the media charges of how Blacks fit into a system; or perhaps even Latinos but I will be mostly touching on Blacks and towards the end of generalities will touch on Latinos as well.Race Relations: Judicial- Social - Law Enforcement2 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
With this particular piece it will be about how other people see Blacks in a judicial, societal and law enforcement view… but also how Blacks see themselves in the context of the judicial system, how society views them and how they feel with respect to law enforcement.
I will first write about the Zimmerman trial and verdict which I expect to be rather short for the most part and then go into the broader situation of both the irony of this trial and race relations as a whole.

I originally was not going to pay attention to the trial because I felt that f
Black Lives Matter - my viewBefore you read anything, know this, I speak for one person, myself. I do not speak for all Black people or other people, So if you read this understand that.Black Lives Matter - my view3 months ago in Philosophical More Like This
It has been a while since I have posted. Mostly because I have pretty much written out all of my political views, all of my economic, education, etc views so I have had very little to say .. at least very little to say that would have me write a great deal enough to consider posting it as a new piece. Which for now I will be writing or trying to write more about specific subjects rather than generalities and perhaps that will lead to me to post a bit more.
Over the last few months especially since this whole “Black Lives Matter” movement started I have been getting into a lot of debates regarding the term, mostly, and let us frank here, usually Whites and more conservative people but also Blacks, Hispanics etc… so here is one post and perhaps I will edit it and add on or subtract later

Bigger than Ferguson..“A riot is the language of the unheard”Bigger than Ferguson..1 year ago in Editorial More Like This
-Martin Luther King Jr.
Though I have already wrote about Ferguson, Missouri and the incident here, and some of that will be discussed in this as well.
I will be discussing the riots in this, as well as some other things I have heard on tv, read online - - particularly from a few people on this site which just made me go..eh…
Starting with the riots, while I do not condone riots and think that is not the best strategy for a long term success, I think that the way the media in general have made it seem as if the rioters were the majority of those protesting were both factually untrue, but even more sad is so called people who do “watch” me on here who have written long pieces about how or making it appear as if the rioters are all there are. I have read local and national reports on the protests. While yes, there were many rioters and people looting, these people made up a very small number of the entire number of pro
Anti-American Me....Anti-American Me....4 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
A few days ago I was debating someone who considers themselves a "conservative libertarian", while debating things like social issues, economic issues this person after hearing that I was a proponent of investing heavy in education and a big advocate for either some type of universal health care system, which is my first choice, or hearing a real plan on how to stop the current 150K Americans who die every year due to a lack of medical coverage in the early 90s 45K Americans died due to a lack of medical coverage which is when you saw the Republicans of the 90s put forth several individual healthcare mandates Now, 20 years later the number of Americans who die due to a lack of medical coverage has grown 300% to 150K
Well after going back and forth this individual stated that I advocate for a "nanny state" and that makes me a bleeding heart leftist which makes me anti-American.
At the time I commented back with, I am not a bleeding heart, I am a prag

I was bored debating someone on another website I was on when the debate went from the use of god in the national pledge and does this violate the free exercise of one's religious liberties as stated by the first amendment, or does it violate the ideals of founding fathers like Thomas Jefferson when he said "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a wall of separation between Church & State" in his letter to the Danbury priests.
After his going back and forth about racial issues in American history, such as cases Brown v. Board of education, Plessy v. Ferguson and several other cases that went before the supreme court. This particular guy, to his credit was not against the integration of schools, and in fact claimed that he would have supported it; that is if the people of the sta
