THE AGE OF BEWILDERMENT

March 11, 2019

As we enter election season, progressives want to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. There is a reason for this and it is not just to incorporate more people into the civic duty of electing officials. The reason is sinister.

At 16, even a working individual has not had the opportunity to evaluate how the earnings taken from his or her paycheck are being abused by their elected officials. Scientific and biological researchers and experts agree that the human mind develops slowly and is not fully capable of continuous rational thought and judgment until a person is in their mid-twenties.

Teachers of students in the public indoctrination system insist on having their bored but active charges put on psychoactive pharmaceuticals to enable greater access to the otherwise bright and thinking minds of our youth. This is also why the government wants to take control of children even before they enter kindergarten.

While yet of what I believe is sound mind, I am having great difficulty understanding some of what is foist upon us by our elected elite socialists under the guise of evolutionary progress.

  • The minimum age to buy and drink alcohol in all 50 states is 21 years.
  • One must be 18 to join the military/fight for your country and kill enemies
  • One must be 18 to buy a firearm on the civilian market…they want to move this to 21 because, they say, a person of only eighteen years is not always capable of controlling their impulses.
  • One must be 18 to destroy their body by smoking tobacco products to ruin their health
  • One must be 18 to obtain a prescription for health medications or have a guardian sign for them.
  • Most states hold the parents responsible for the liabilities created by and the welfare of offspring until their 18th birthday.

For all of the above, one must present proof of age in the form of a verified government issued identification generally showing a photographic likeness of the individual requesting service (except for voting).

These ages, agreed upon and established over decades as norms, are now under consideration for revision to accommodate Marxist/socialist goals of transforming our democratic republic into a state of dictatorship.

*Remember, it was Michelle Obama who said in 2008, “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making. Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior.

VOTE16USA.org is dedicated to lowering the voting age to 16 across the nation. The organization says that such a move will improve voter turnout and encourage civic engagement. They offer heavy influence to the power-grabbing elite. Democrats in congress recently included lowering the voting age as an amendment in HR1 “For the People Act of 2019”.

From the website: http://nancyguberti.com/5-stages-of-human-brain-development/ (emphasis added to pertinent parts)

Stage 1: 0 to 10 months

~Neurons and connections growing.

Stage 2: birth to 6 years

~Development of voluntary movement, reasoning, perception, frontal lobes active in development of emotions, attachments, planning, working memory, and perception. A sense of self is developing and life experiences shape the emotional well being.

Our elected officials want control of this subset calling it Early Childhood or Pre-K development. By taking control of the early developing mind, it is possible to manipulate and subdue the child into the mold dictatorial socialists desire. They can “correct” responsive thinking early for compatibility with what they deem as new societal norms.

Stage 3: 7 to 22 years

~The neural connections or ‘grey’ matter is still pruning, wiring of brain still in progress, the fatty tissues surrounding neurons or ‘white’ matter increase and assist with speeding up electrical impulses and stabilize connections.  The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making.

~Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior. Avoiding drugs, alcohol, smoking, unprotected sex and substance abuse.

Stage 4: 23 to 65 years

~Finally, the brain reaches its peak power around age 22 and lasts for 5 more years. Afterwards, it’s a downhill pattern. Last to mature and the first to go are the brain functionality of executive control occurring in the prefrontal and temporal cortices. Memory for recalling episodes start to decline, processing speed slows and working memory is storing less information.

~Best approach is to stay mentally active, learn new things, stay physically active and eat a very healthy diet. Avoid toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and mind-altering drugs.

Given the proven development pattern of the human brain, is there any question why Democrat Socialists want to lower the voting age? Total control and manipulation of their subjects, “We the People”, appears to be the goal.  It’s only one part of the social engineering for effect taking place today.

GET ELECTED TO CONGRESS AND VOTE FOR YOURSELF

November 27, 2018

Compared to men and women in uniform who willingly risk their lives to retain our way of life and give citizens around the globe humanitarian opportunities, our government elite are excessively compensated. For instance, a U.S. military member with a pay grade of E-6 (five earned pay grades above entry level) having given more than two years service to our country receives a base pay of only $2,802/mo.($33,264/yr.) This is scheduled to be raised for 2019 by 2.4% to a whopping $2,869/mo. A serviceman’s work schedule includes readiness twenty-four hours a day and often includes weeks on end without a stand down.

Compare that to the average Amazon carton handler who now earns $15.00/hr. That’s 2,580/mo. or nearly $31,000/yr. for placing boxes on a conveyor belt 8 hours a day.  When the bell rings ending the shift, they’re outta there!  An over-the-road trucker earns an average of $23.00/hr or almost $78,000 annually if they really go at it.  Consider what the average retail store manager is paid.  Good ones make approximately $46,000 a year.

Military accommodations often consist of living in tents, bathing in streams or ponds when available with clothing changes welcomed whenever possible. Granted, they do receive an extra stipend when deployed to areas or subjected to situations where death is imminent.

Why should congressional members protected by the secret service and capitol police make so much more?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears designer ensembles costing more than the average soldier makes in a month to her campaign venues. While campaigning, she has been seen wearing outfits of estimated cost exceeding $3,500 including shoes with a price tag of $625. Though she dresses for success, she’s whining that she cannot afford to live in the city or suburbs surrounding her new job.

Not even seated yet, the socialist darling of the left is suggesting legislation that would give congressional members a housing allowance in excess of the freshman base pay of $174,000. And, the members vote themselves raises at will. *Congress is required by Article I, Section 6, of the Constitution to determine its own pay.

Some current members, known to sleep in their offices and bathe in the gym locker room (not the Potomac River), have suggested a housing allowance while in session amounting to $2,500 per month.

Returning to reason perhaps we, the American voters, should consider something along the lines of a government housing facility for our downtrodden elected leaders like the projects offered by H.U.D. There are numerous vacant government owned buildings in and about Washington D.C. that could easily be converted into dorms or apartments.

For those choosing this option, the accommodations might be paid for by deducting $1,500 – $2,500 per month ($18,000 – 30,000/yr) from the base we now pay them. Nancy would consider it just “crumbs”. Most of them can probably scrape by on the remaining measly $144,000 per year. A transportation allowance of $5.00 per round trip to and from the dorm and capitol could be an additional benefit for consideration.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s next proposal is probably for a congressional clothing allowance and meal per diem to go along with the housing allowance. After all, we must redistribute the wealth from those who worked hard to earn their bounty. Soon thereafter, I’m sure, she’ll and the others will consider working for the people who elected them instead of what they can do to benefit themselves.  Yeah, right!

Congressional staffers and interns live and commute under the same circumstances and seem to get by on their pay of $30,000 – $85,000 per year without such perks. And they do much, if not most, of the work for which the elected elite receive their salaries.

OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM 2018 STYLE

October 29, 2018

In 1966, Richard Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven, developed a strategy to overload the public Welfare system and precipitate a crisis leading to the replacement of the system with a national guaranteed income that, in their minds, would end poverty in the U.S. This became well known as “The Cloward and Piven Strategy”.

Need it be said that they were both professors indoctrinating the leaders of today with the ways of Communism. As teachers at the Columbia University School of Social Work, they were able to instill Utopian thoughts in the accepting minds of today’s Progressive/Socialist/Democrats.

Their ploy has since become the mainstream thought and platform of the current Democrat party. As president, Obama did his level best to over-regulate private business causing mass unemployment and need for government “safety net” programs. With the help of community organizers, President Obama increased the demand on the nation’s entitlement Welfare system and carried the concept of induced poverty to include WICS, section 8 housing subsidies, Obamaphones and encouraged many former workers to partake of disability payments through the Social Security fund.

One Democrat, Senator Ben Cardin, recently suggested that we welcome the hordes of impoverished Central and South Americans of the caravan into our country, thus, further straining our current resources. Beyond that, he also called for “investing” more U.S. income earners’ money by giving the thieves heading the pseudo-democratic socialist dictatorships of our neighbors to the south greater opportunity to continue the practices that harm the citizenry of those countries.

Today’s amplified and exaggerated version of the strategy promulgated by the pair of anarchists envelopes more than the monetary subsidies extended by federal agencies. It is also burdening education, health care and the court systems. It is straining the civil, criminal and federal courts by introducing otherwise illegal foreigners to the courts in addition to citizens and legal residents.

Currently, there is said to be a backlog in the immigration courts exceeding 700,000 cases. Add to that the human procession estimated at 7,000-10,000 headed north from Mexico’s southern border. Their intent (actually the intent of the multi-billionaire globalists funding the incursion) is to destroy our sovereignty; to break down the borders that define our country and create chaos and anarchy. Many, if not most, of the intruders will be awarded benefits paid for by you and your fellow citizens.

The socialists among our population and elected leaders are destined to use the inevitable “crisis” created to further their goals of remaking our country into one from which people, in just a few short years, will try to escape.

There is only a week left to mark your ballot for continued economic growth, prosperity and rule of law or the likeness of Venezuela.

ANYBODY WHO BELIEVES IT’S THE STUDENTS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BUY A GUN

April 13, 2018

There’s a lot of attention recently given to David Hogg and a few other “survivors” of the MSDHS shooting of February 14, 2018. However, the high school students are only pawns of the anti-gun movement. Those who believe the students are in charge are obviously mentally ill. Such a belief indicates that they are incapable of rational thought.

Even those indoctrinated in the Marxist/socialist centers, aka public schools, must recognize there is no way for a small group of students experiencing a traumatic event to organize these marches and media campaigns. The permits alone for the marches cost thousands of dollars. This group of students probably couldn’t afford the cardboard on which the slogans are painted or professionally printed. Few, even with the help of parents, could afford to travel to the protest sites like Washington D.C.

So, who’s funding and organizing the students and “their” protests? It’s the same cabal that funded and directed the last administration. It’s the “resistance”, the George Soros (Gyorgy Schwartz) crowd. It’s the billionaire One World government – Agenda 21 – Agenda 2030 – America hating Communists who are leading the mush-minded school kids and dim-witted adults who refuse to comprehend what they ask for.

If you want to control gun violence, keep guns away from the mentally ill, criminals and those who are easily and ignorantly duped; those who are too stupid to know they are being used. Those are not people who should be followed. Quite the contrary; those are people who should be feared because they are easily propelled by people with evil agendas whose violence is a proven acceptable means to their end.

The “education system” has, over the past few decades, taught our children how to be victims and how to follow. The current youth generation is afraid of themselves and can only take in the worst of society. Only a few have the rare capability to think for themselves or see beyond victim hood. Those who do are considered privileged. Choose what you like: (white privilege, class privilege, male privilege, female privilege, gender privilege, race privilege, etc.) and vehemently rail against it, but certainly don’t take the time or make the effort to better yourself for that will give you a contemptible privilege.

So, why do they want to take away our guns? It’s so that a powerful and well armed centralized government can further dictate your existence. It’s the means to the end. The end is Communism; government ownership of all property with tightly controlled rationing of food and all other necessities to the minions who ignorantly followed billionaires’ leadership to destroy their own world.

We must make sure they cannot aggress or defend themselves with weapons. They are too unstable and dangerous.

 

DREAMERS AND OTHER LAW BREAKERS

April 3, 2018

For those of you who want to immediately call CNN and report your imagined hatred read into the title above please, at least this one time, take a moment to absorb some reason from this writing.

Using just a bit of logic, try to adapt the following situation to the current immigration debate.

A white Scandinavian adult male (we’ll call him Bjorn) here on an expired visa enters a locally owned independent grocery store. He just wants a better life for himself and his family. Along with him is his fourteen year old daughter, Margareta.

Bjorn gathers a pork roast, corn, some potatoes, carrots and perhaps a gallon of milk along with some hygiene products and cleaning supplies from the shelves. Margareta meanwhile places some gum, chips and an umbrella into the basket. Together they run out of the store as fast as they can with Bjorn pushing the shopping cart. They get three blocks away from the store and within a block of their home before being apprehended by a local constable. In their flight, they cross out of the city limits into county territory.

Using your brain, not your emotion, relate this situation to what you inherently know is right for our immigration system. Below are a few questions to ask yourself. I have already provided some plausible comparable situations.

1. After being questioned by authorities, should they be free to go with their largess because they were not caught within the confines of the store or even the city where the crime occurred? Illegal aliens, having made their way across our border are given a Notice to Appear and sent on their merry way. Many never show up in court and remain at large for years using stolen or forged documents to obtain work and government services.

2. If the pair was not caught and questioned within three weeks or two months, does that effectively erase the crime? Advocates for illegal immigrants often use the argument that he/she has been in the U.S. for X amount of time and, therefore, should be allowed to remain.

3. Should the store owner or manager be held liable because the front door was open for patrons or the back door was unlocked because a delivery was being made at the time? Many advocates for the illegal aliens say it is the fault of the U.S. for not adequately securing the borders. Then, when discussion regarding security measures begin, the people wanting to defend our borders are called racists or xenophobes.

4. Should the adult be punished for his misdeed? He was only trying to provide for his family. This is a favorite argument on behalf of the illegal immigrants. Bjorn showed his daughter that it is acceptable to break the law as long as the personal goal can be self-justified as honorable.

5. Should the minor child’s theft be forgiven because this is the only life she knows? She shows no remorse for her actions. She may even demand public support as a victim of immigration laws that do not support her “right” to be here attempting to survive.

6. Should the minor child be awarded benefits beyond those of her peers because her father is a petty criminal and taught her that it’s okay if the stated end goal is self betterment? Education, school lunches, health care, housing subsidies, subsistence payments?

7. Did Margareta have the opportunity to comply with moral codes and existing law; to apply for permanent legal residency? Did her dad? This is a question that advocates for illegal immigrants refuse to ask or answer.

Ya gotta love the cries of the “Dreamers”. Their illegal entry was forgiven by a lawless president. They have been taught by our public schools (at taxpayer expense and the educational cost to other students, I might add) that just because they came here as youth or young adults, through no fault of their own, that they are owed all the rights and benefits associated with citizenship.

They are owed! They are owed lawyers at taxpayer expense. They are owed a SNAP card and account. They are owed an education. They are owed driver licenses. They are owed health care and medical treatment. They are owed free tuition or instate tuition at state colleges and universities. They are even owed an “Obama Phone”, cable access and high speed internet connection (in some cases, a computer to make the connection). They are owed an interpreter and “first-in-line” placement and accommodations for not speaking and understanding the language. They are owed the benefit of doubt when committing minor crimes.

Let’s use some intelligence and start with the premise that they are law breakers, minors or not! Rectify the first misdemeanor. Go home and start the legal process. Then we can work on the rest.

Yes, we can and should help some of the people escaping extreme danger or tyranny. But we are not obligated to accept everybody who wants to live here and change our laws and culture to match those they fled. English is our language. Enforced laws used to be our way of order.
