AS THE VITRIOL FOUND AT CHARLOTTSVILLE SUBSIDES, WE MUST RETURN TO REASON

August 17, 2017

Let me first preface this rant with the statement that in no way do I agree with the alt-right movement. I condemn racism and bigotry as the ignorance of a few. I likewise condemn the violence of all congenital philistines who wantonly engage those with whom they fundamentally disagree. I implore, if you begin reading this essay, that you read through the entire text to the end and not otherwise pass judgment. That would be like listening to the nightly lies or reading the headlines of the birdcage liners and accepting the “journalist’s” perverted opinion as fact.

That given, I am not in favor of revising the history of the United States of America or that of the world for political or ideological reasons. There are a lot of things that have been done wrong throughout history just as there are many things that have contributed to the greatness of the civilization we know today. We should leave all references to both sides in place for future generations to study, dialogue and understand.

Public schools today, if they teach any world history at all, tend to promote the sexual preference of Napoleon Bonaparte over the accomplishments of the man as he led the French army in the early 19th century. Likewise for Julius Caesar, a respected and accomplished Roman general and statesman whose political desires and aspirations caused the demise of the Roman Republic and resulted in his own assassination. This also precipitated the rise of the great Roman Empire. Subjective ideological assertions to leaders such as Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Hirohito, Mao, Castro and Chavez distort the true accounts of their accomplishments, misdeeds and failures.

Removing or defacing statues, renaming buildings, streets, parks and etc. to reflect the softness of the current times, denies that past ills of the nation ever existed. It does nothing for the actual histories behind the monuments, but simply allows for the revision and distortion of that or those histories. Just as the kids of today cannot understand the meanings or reasons behind wars of America’s past, they will most certainly not understand the struggles of today or yesteryear because of the current portrayals of those events.

In his speech on Tuesday, the president questioned if other tributes to other generals and artifacts would be removed from public view. How far can we go in this world of political correctness? Removing the remnants of societal ills does not remove the repugnance of the times to which they point. It only allows for misrepresentation of those times. I question much of what President Trump says and does, however, on this I believe he agrees with me.

Monument – to remind, advise or warn.

Should we eliminate Mount Rushmore? After all, it depicts four round-eyed white guys…no women, no people of color, no gays, no staunch environmentalists. Two of the four presidents whose likenesses are carved into the Black Hills were slave owners. A third portrait member was a proud and unequivocal racist. Perhaps the removal of the Sewall House/Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument would be in order because it specifically signifies the fight for rights for women. LGBTQ need not apply!

Shall we level the pyramids of Egypt?

This slope is steep and heavily greased. If left to the few anarchists, our history might be extinguished within a few decades.

All sides were to blame for the violence at Charlottesville, and there were many.

As the president stated, the blame for the violence at Charlottesville rests in numerous places and not solely on the shoulders of the despicable alt-right group or groups know as “Unite the Right” white nationalists, white supremacists,KKK or any other ignorant and insane bigots associated with that rally.

However, agree or disagree with their philosophy, they lawfully drew a permit to assemble in a public square. Left to their own, there would have been perhaps 500 sick minded people protesting among themselves about the demerits of removing a 97 year old monument. There would have been no feuding, just bigoted pontification unheard by anybody of respect. There would be no one to blame because there would be no conflict.

If there is to be blame, it would lie in four categories: The office of the mayor (Michael Singer), the governor of Virginia (Terry McAuliffe) and the voracious media that covered and exacerbated the events with their presence and endless repetition of the violence and mayhem. Additionally, if there were no armed and angered counter-protesters allowed in the vicinity, there would have been no murder and terrorism by car.

The first, and arguably the greatest responsibility for the chaos and problems of the day is Mayor Michael Singer and the city offices under his jurisdiction. Allowing two highly excitable, volatile and diametrical factions permits within proximity, on the same day and at the same times invited conflict. Calling for a police stand down when engagement began was perhaps the second most foolish act for any public official, especially after they had observed counter-protesters with armor, weapons and desire for battle.

Next in line but certainly not of tertiary responsibility would be the counter-protesters themselves. This collective was made up of various groups (as Bogie might say, “the usual suspects”) known for violence and destruction. The resistance, Black Lives Matter, Antifa and related groups have even called for and been indicted for violence at their rallies and the brutal and senseless killing of police officers. These cliques are as far out of the mainstream and at least as hateful and dangerous as are the white nationalists. Many members of these groups have been arrested or have arrest warrants against them for causing bodily injury to others, domestic terrorism and property destruction.

Again, I admonish the deplorable thoughts, words and actions of the ignorant racist bigots known as white nationalists or white supremacists and any hate filled morons. However, I don’t believe there is logic in holding them solely accountable for the actions of last Saturday just because they exist.

SEEKING THE LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR

August 7, 2017

According to a 2010 study by Columbia University, remedial math courses are necessary for students entering community colleges. The study states that nearly 50% of freshman students are not proficient in math and must catch up in order to participate in a regular curriculum.

Causally referred to as 13th grade, the courses for freshman year are costly and time consuming for those who wish to graduate within reasonable time. But, guhuck,…unqualified students can say they is in college. This here is edacashun in the twenny oneth senchery.

Don’t require participation or completion of assignments in grade and high school, just pass the students for attending classes. In some cases, students are even paid for stopping by the school during regular class time. <link>

For those who do show up regularly on their own, give them grades that make them feel good about themselves. Everyone is at the top of the class.

This is nothing new. I have made my feelings about our schools and “presence promotion” known previously and often. <link>

Now, for those who cannot understand or choose not to participate in mathematics enlightenment, Eloy Ortiz Oakley, chancellor of California Community Colleges is willing to do away with algebra as a graduation requirement. He says it is a civil rights issue that disproportionately plagues low income Americans. His own words, “If you think about all the underemployed or unemployed Americans in this country who cannot connect to a job in this economy — which is unforgiving of those students who don’t have a credential — the biggest barrier for them is this algebra requirement. It’s what has kept them from achieving a credential.”

Okay, so now the uneducated individual has a credential and gets a job? How long will that person last if he or she doesn’t have the knowledge required for the position or is too lazy to learn the position because of his or her training by the system?

According to the Pew Research Center, the United States is dropping lower and lower in the rankings against other world countries. Students primarily educated in Asian countries perform far better and generally rank in the top 5-10 worldwide. <link>

Some four year colleges are now limiting the number of Asian students. Could this be due to the fact that some cultures still encourage personal responsibility and emphasize the need for education and knowledge over social equality? Could it be that those people who believe in hard work and self discipline are changing the arch of the bell curve to cause more sub-par or failing grades among our coddled youth?

Since the majority of our offspring do so poorly in all three fundamental groups (math, science and reading) why do we even bother spending valuable taxpayer money or class time on the lazy urchins with these now outdated subjects? By doing away with such unnecessary studies as U.S. and world history, English, geography, math, biology, etc. there would be so much more time for the pertinent and requisite studies of the day that will help them be successful and prosper. Gender reassignment, multi-sexual enlightenment, race baiting relations, claiming cultural offense and peaceful protest through aggression and the use of weapons are sure to make life better for all.

Oh, yeah, one course that must be taught in our public schools is how to demand that someone else properly fill out the application for complete government life subsidy. Then the kids will qualify for a diploma (that they cannot read). After the ceremony, the graduating class can then stroll down the hall, certificate in hand, to the embedded government office and get an early start on a subservient life by applying for public assistance. That way they can avoid the embarrassment of being unqualified to flip hamburgers, wash linen or pick up trash in the parkways of life.

GENETICALLY ENGINEERING SOCIETY

July 31, 2017

You’ve been had! If you’ve paid attention to life at all of late, you’ve undoubtedly read or heard myriad stories about gays, gays in the military, transgenders in the military, transgender surgery for the gender confused or the like. Perhaps you’ve heard the acronym LGBT-Q and some of the 58 gender pronouns. The list is growing – two years ago I could find an aggregate of only 54.

A bit less loudly played are stories about Alzheimer’s, dementia, autism, suicides, violence, developmental cognitive disorders, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), cancer and many other now common human diseases and disorders.

What can anyone expect the outcome to be when we inject, ingest and inhale all the foreign substances that are forced upon us by our government and those imposed by other entities? Let us not rule out what we put into our bodies by choice. That list must also include what our parents assimilated before conception or during pregnancy that influence the people we are today. Alcohol and tobacco are, or should be, among the least of concerns regarding the young and unborn.

While we are cautioned about any surfaces containing lead based paint that may remain in our homes, outbuildings and antique and foreign made toys, little to no mention is made public regarding other dangerous factors facing us today. We are warned about calorie count in our fast foods. Some foods must carry a label as to where they were caught, farmed, grown, processed or compiled but not how they were treated during their incubation, growth, combining or processing. Often, there are laboratory manufactured substances added to promote rapid growth or enhance flavor that don’t require labeling.

Even organic foods often fall under suspicion. Fruits and vegetables may be grown without pesticides, but does that account for the nutrients added to or that might be inherent within the soil from decades of environmental contamination? What about the ground water supply? PH is not the only factor that must be considered when testing these sources. Is there wind driven cross pollination from nearby polluted crops (like GMO)? Could there be contamination to otherwise pristine ingestibles by insects or animals?

That’s the food portion. Now for the scary part.

Doctors now prescribe synthetic pharmaceuticals to counter the affects of the pills we take to abate symptoms of health problems. If you are taking two or more medications, this might be the case.

We are coerced into injections or transdermal absorption for our health and that of others. Often they contain macabre additives for stabilization and preservation. While it may seem reasonable to treat our bodies against potentially harmful diseases and ailments, these helpful pharmaceuticals can also be harmful.

Over the years vaccines have been stabilized by such unsafe substances as mercury (carcinogen and neurotoxin), methylmercury (neurotoxin) and formaldehyde (carcinogen). They sometimes even contain heavy metals. Granted, the amounts are minimal, but they are cumulative. Even initial exposure may cause long term effects not even perceivable until they are irreversible.

Parents are encouraged to have their infants, as young as 2 months, receive vaccinations for polio. Before they are 2 years old, it is recommended that children undergo inoculations for measles, mumps and rubella (MMR).

Doctors and scientists have a wide range of knowledge regarding human function. It is not unlike the innovative minded to want to alter human genome for research purposes. Out front, we have been entertained by growing human ears and noses on the necks of pigs and mice.

Is there still a wonder how or why so many within the general populace don’t understand what gender they are? Is there still a question in your mind why there are so many social and mental illnesses?

Society is being genetically manipulated!

TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT, TAKE DOWN THE COUNTRY

July 17, 2017

All the hype and hoopla about President Trump colluding with Russia to influence our election really has nothing to do with either Trump or Russia. It has to do with a man and his team wanting to change the ways of the deteriorated old guard; to make America, as we once knew it…Great Again.

The ignorance of those falling in line behind the Marxists who have invaded our nation and national political scene is absolutely amazing. The public and private educational institutions dominated by leftists (be they self-described as Communists, Socialists, Marxists or the deceitfully gentle term “progressives”) inbreed thoughts that equality is superior to ethic. Education in the liberal arts is nothing less than social engineering to a doctrine of socialism. The socialist indoctrination begins with the first contact children have with government trained and credentialed mind conditioners, aka elementary school teachers, and continues with each government “education” contact.

Even our military, formed to protect us from all enemies foreign and domestic, is now subject to the rules and regulations put forth by subversives. The “Rules of Engagement” instituted by the last administration lead only to the death of our defenders. They unnecessarily restricted our troops’ ability to take offensive action in order to win a battle. It is better to be fair than it is to win…equality for all. Unfortunately, our enemies don’t follow the same rules. President Trump has foregone the ideological micromanagement of his predecessor by returning that leadership to the knowledgeable generals and admirals of our armed forces.

Isn’t it amazing how little news the MSM shares about Cuba or Venezuela. These are the countries and economies our progressives wish to emulate. These are countries where there are basically two class economies; the elite and the destitute. This is the direction George Soros and the Bilderberg Group want to take the United States knowing that all nations of the world will then follow. A “One World Government” is the very definition of a two class system.

Those of us who see beyond the current hour misdirecting news flash are capable of chaining events. The long-term picture shows much beyond what is happening now. By relating recent history, current events, political endeavors and collective agreements it is possible to assess the ultimate goals of our “leaders”. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are non-binding agreements conceptually advancing society to global communism.

What is the true goal behind Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030? Was all the speculation and examination concerning Jade Helm 15 exercises really wacko conspiracy theory? Is there a connective thread between the exercises of Jade Helm 15 and the One World objectives? These are the questions not asked by the rioters as they follow the memes of celebrities and political progressives hell-bent on exploiting the ignorant and unschooled mental adolescents.

The stumbling block in this scheme is the freedoms currently afforded to the people of the U.S. that give us the ability to fight back. However, unless more people pay attention and aggressively resist the resistance, the future of our grandchildren looks bleak. Major funding, provided by multi billionaires eager to faction populations and control the world through despotism is disbursed to ignorant minions who do the ground work on their behalf. Little do the Alinsky trained know-naughts recognize they are slaving on behalf of the elites to create their own serfdom.

The “Resist” movement is not about President Trump! It’s not about the Trump family. Trump and troupe are the misdirection of the One World leaders. The president is the shiny object, the directive point, because he refuses to fall in line with the anti-capitalist, anti-democratic and subversive globalists. The resist movement is nothing more than the cloaked but calculated harbinger to the implementation of Agenda 21, now morphed into Agenda 2030. It is the elite cabal’s engineered and cultivated lemmings unwittingly destroying their own futures and that of society as a whole in the name of socially engineered globalization. The end result, once fully implemented, is global communism. Soros is laughingly proud of his mindless followers and their progress.

The Resist movement is a product of about three generations of children attending public indoctrination camps where they have learned to lazily absorb and accept what is spewed. Thinking beyond and questioning what is professed is discouraged in public schools. The blind followers of the Alinsky trained, Marx idolizing teachers and professors carry out the messaging of their only known mentors by demanding rather than earning and protesting those who earn.

James Comey managed to scatter an investigation of unfounded allegations and innuendo submitted by anonymous sources in so many directions it will take years to follow the bread crumbs. He caused the convening of a special counsel to chase a line of negative allegations and innuendo proving he, too, is among the subversives as shown by his actions. Our government is dismantling from within.

By challenging every move the president makes, the Resist coup makes government even less efficient than government. (Yes, that is what I meant to say.) Distracting attention from the affairs of the nation is the goal of the left. How many times lately have you heard the leftist blurt, “He hasn’t achieved his stated goals.”

The idiot minions are seeking recognition for hitting milestones in accomplishing their objective. These are the same people that learned in school that there is no need for valedictorians because endorsing accomplishment demeans those who choose to laze and graze rather than achieve.

I don’t know any more than the average news consumer about the Trump-Russian intervention/collusion/collaboration issue. It may well all be true. It may also be true in part or completely made up. A definite concern, however, is the media drilling us each day and night with innuendo and unverifiable and unsubstantiated speculation.  It is not good for you, me or any American. Alinsky training makes them want to control thoughts and influence minds.  They know that repetition fosters a false pretense of credibility.

Personally, I would like to return to the country I served in uniform, where change is welcome and not to be denied.   Howbeit, total rescission of America’s foundation is inherently wrong.

DEMOCRATS NEED TO FIND A MESSAGE

July 7, 2017

I love it! I listen to Democrat party leaders, spokespersons and pundits commenting on their own organization. I read newspaper articles and blog postings from all avenues of the political spectrum. Honestly, I spend much of my leisure time with FOX, but often take in the challenging viewpoints of CNN, MSNBC and the three old and tired broadcast stations. Occasionally, I listen to talk radio. It matters naught what is on or who is speaking, the theme continues to be that the Democrat party needs to find a message the American public cares about. Republican and Democrat pundits reiterate the same thing, “the Democrats need a message”.

Wow! That tells me everything I need to know about the party whose members describe it as “the oldest voter-based political party in the world”. They’re lost. They have nothing too offer; they need a message. They have no cohesive direction or thoughts regarding what is right for you or the country. They have no convictions to share before any election. They don’t even care, they just need to find a message, then they might work on the rest.  Perhaps they’ll just promote the new message without regard for carrying it out.

Shouldn’t it be the other way around? Shouldn’t a political party or politician start with a reason for being, then work on achieving that objective? Wouldn’t it be nice to find a person or party that has defined a goal for the nation that they can proudly announce and run on? And then, of course, follow through to accomplish the stated goal.

Politicians today, on both sides of the aisle, are so consumed with winning elections; so oriented on planting their butt into a seat of power that they must manufacture a cause. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous or meaningless it is, as long as it resonates with their constituents. Identify a heartwarming cause. Coin a slogan. Promise the minions anything but get into that prestigious and enviable position.  Then you can relax, forget the promises and chug along with the daily flow. Spend ¾ of your time campaigning for the next election to maintain your new job. Stop by the chamber and cast a vote or two occasionally (you need not spend any time reading bills, just ask the veterans within your party how they think you should vote). Then go out and raise some more money for the DNC and yourself.

You can bet that as soon as the Democrats find a message they will use it to raise funds to get someone elected. Once defined, the media will carry that message on every front page as a headline and every cable and broadcast program until it becomes believable. Those public indoctrinated educated idiots won’t understand that they are entrapping themselves into subservience to the elite as they lap up the free kool-aid.

Watch out! They will find that repeatable jingle or phrase. Once they do, it is all you will hear until the next round of votes are in. It will obsolete “Make America Great Again”. When you hear it enough, fake news is the truth. No matter what the audible surface words are, you can bet the subliminal message is “Put Democrats in Power. Despotism and Socialism is what you really want”.

Your income will drop.  Your taxes will rise.  Your rights will be legislated away.  The national debt will grow.  Then, the only difference between the U.S. and Venezuela will be the primary language.
