Hipsters are Trendy

The most predictable people in the world are those desperate to be like no one else. They confuse separateness with originality. I was watching the hipsters gather at the coffee shop tonight. They were bringing their instruments and wearing vans, and t-shirts with ironic statements—I don’t think a one of them weighed over 180, thrift wear, tight pants, and tight jackets included sopping wet. One guy had a short hairstyle reminiscent of a sixties supermodel – you know… the silhouette of his head would look like a light bulb. Most of the hairstyles worn seemed to consider grooming too trendy.

I guess the whole idea of the hipster’s outfit and hair is to show solidarity with the homeless while paying $6.95 for a latte. It’s too mainstream to pay that much at Starbucks.

I’ve been haunting this downtown area for a while now. I’ve noticed a couple of retro looking SUV‘s. One has a Che Guevara bumper sticker; the other has a Darwin sticker—the one where the fish has legs. Wow, that is so avant-garde. Each of these hipster haulers has the assorted and very typical array of leftist bumper stickers—so original.

I pack up my laptop and I leave. As I walk out the door, I begin to connect the dots. There on the road are these two SUV’s with these skinny young men trying to haul pieces of their disassembled drum set into the coffee shop. I gazed at the stickers and gazed at the hipsters.

Predictable.

So What’s With the Name, A Speaking Human?

You are a menace. A walking pestilence. – Dr. Zaius.

Welcome to my blog, I am the walking pestilence. “A Speaking Human” is derived from Charlton Heston’s character, George Taylor from Planet of the Apes. The quote by Dr. Zaius sounds like Bill Maher talking to Rush Limbaugh.

Doesn’t it seem like we conservatives are a shocking paradox to the Council of Liberals as Taylor was the Council of Apes? He was a speaking human! A menace! It seems they can’t believe that we actually have minds and we’re able to form coherent sentences. For too long they’ve read their liberal scrolls-the New York Times et al-repeated their euphemistic mantras, and delighted in movies and sitcoms crammed with political correctness to repeat the narrative and reenforce the mythology that all conservative are heartless, narrow-minded idiots.

It’s like we conservatives have come out of the woods-to the their surprise-already house broke and capable of using an indoor toilet. This confounds them. It doesn’t match the narrative they’ve been taught and so they try to cram us back in the outhouse and congratulate themselves on how evolved they are. It is written in the scrolls that we are all big eared inbred hillbillies, living in the fly-over states.

Is the Constitution in ruins, too?

I’m here, along with other conservative bloggers, to continue the confounding so that it may lead to disillusionment, which may be painful for the ‘liberal’, but ultimately worth it. I don’t do this to torment ‘liberals’ (note that on my blog I will usually put the word liberal in quotes because true believing ‘liberals’ are anything but…). Most are living the Matrix (the movie), existing completely clueless as to the core of what they’ve accepted and internalized, and perhaps unwittingly, promote. I see these Matrix ’liberals’ as comfortable and captive. I’m here to help inflict unrest on the comfy and set captives free from illusions. I want them to break free from the Council of Liberals and the so-called “Critical Theory” (google it).

Mainly I will writer about my passion, writing. I will also review movies, comment on music, attempt humor, occasionally do some Christian worldview apologetic, write a short story here and there, and update on the writing of my epic fantasy fiction saga under the working title of Blood and Soul. Book One of the Creed of Kings Saga. Six books are in the works, to be finished and released in sequence.

Liberty or Tyranny?

June 29, 2012 3 comments

Click here to buy on amazon.

Modern Liberals are content to bask in the afterglow of the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare, waiting for utopia to arrive; meanwhile government grows (16,000 new IRS agents) to a fleet of Titanic ships and the icebergs of reality lurk ahead. Their ships flags wave politically correct euphemisms celebrating their murder of the selfish goose that laid the golden egg: free enterprise. And we conservatives feel like exiles in our own country.

Reasons to read this book:

  • If you can’t fit your philosophy on a bumper sticker, read this book.
  • If you have been sitting on the political fence, then this book is for you.
  • If you don’t know what the problems with government are, then read this book.
  • If you want to know or be reminded of the unshakable ideas the Spirit of ’76  philosophy is founded on, then read this book.
  • If you want fuel for those talks over lunch with the office friend, then read this book.

Enter Mark Levin’s Liberty and Tyranny. It’s a submarine delivering philosophical torpedoes with deadly accuracy exploding the “liberal” ship of myths filled with dreamy platitudes. The carnage was exhilarating. I was filled with anger and joy as I witnessed the war of ideas waged on the pages. This book is to “liberal” ideology what the iceberg was to the Titanic and it has sent “liberals” scurrying to abort inconvenient ideas birthed among the minds of America. Young people might read it!

This passage from the beginning of the book is a sample of its consistent potency.

“The Modern Liberal believes in the supremacy of the state, thereby rejecting the principles of the Declaration and the order of civil society, in whole or part. For the Modern Liberal, the individual’s imperfection and personal pursuits impede the objective of the utopian state. In this, Modern Liberalism promotes what French historian Alexis de Tocqueville described as a soft tyranny, which becomes increasingly more oppressive, potentially leading to a hard tyranny (some form of totalitarianism). As the word ‘liberal’ is, in its classical meaning, the opposite of authoritarian, it is more accurate, therefore, to characterize the Modern Liberal as a Statist.”

Liberals are not liberal; they are Statist. In modern times, if an American government wants to dominate its free people, then the people have to accept a subtle redefining of liberty. For a large portion of the nation, that redefining has occurred and been accepted. Liberty no longer means freedom from coercion but freedom from calamity and consequence. The reality of this so-called liberty has to be white washed to sustain the fantasy for the masses. Levin shows repeatedly through insightful illustrations that this fight is not so much about Republicans and Democrats, but about the individual verses the Statist Authoritarians. But, the Statist see their efforts as liberating and they see you and I as narrow minded buffoons trapped in tradition needing to evolve.

Levine offers this quote on the book jacket.

“We all declare for liberty; but in using the same word we do not all mean the same thing. With some, the word liberty may mean for each man to do as he pleases with himself, and the product of his labor; while with others, the same word may mean for some men to do as they please with other men, and the product of other men’s labor. Here are two, not only different, but incompatible things, called by the same name—liberty. And it follows that each of the things is, by the respective parties, called two different and incompatible names—liberty and tyranny.” Abraham Lincoln, 1864

What an irony that the freest, most successful nation, the most advanced, the nation whose ideas have changed the world for the better is now on the verge of surrendering its greatness, its future, and its unrealized potential and step backwards in the name of progress, to become slaves to the state in the name of liberty.

It has been hard work but the Statists are now very close to success. It was not easy. To get Americans to accept the all-powerful State, they have to be nice about it and make average folk feel like victims; that they are missing out, impeded by reality.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busy bodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity many at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” C. S Lewis quoted in Levin’s book on page 22-23.

That removes the sugar from the cyanide of State serfdom. They want us to believe all things dreamed by Statist are good for us.

One of the major players in this debacle continues to be our media, which for the most part is a propaganda wing for Statists dreams. They lampoon our beliefs, our people and books regularly. The strategy they are combating Levin with is treating him as if is persona non-grata. He has embarrassed them by selling over 700,000 copies of Liberty and Tyranny (with over a million in print and flying off the shelves–as of two years ago when I read and reviewed it.) The book was #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for 3 or 4 months. Yet, no ‘liberal’ show had him as a guest. He has been virtually ignored. Are there any students doing book reports on it?

Why did it do so well? To put it simply, it’s great. In 205 easy to read pages, Levin leaves the ideology of the Statist authoritarians a smoking ruin. He focuses like a laser beam on major issues facing our country and grounds his arguments in bedrock conservative truth, which is rooted in the wisdom and lessons learned from the ages. He offers insight from many of the great thinkers, Burke, de Tocqueville, Milton Friedman, Reagan, the founding fathers, and the great philosophers. To say this book is important to conservatives, and this nation, is an understatement.

Screen writers know they can’t chose the actor and then write the part for him. You have to write the script and have the actor try out. Well, the role is written in Liberty and Tyranny. If you want to win the role as a conservative leader for the nation, then the part has been written. READ THIS BOOK!

Post Constitutional Fungus Among us

December 31, 2011 1 comment

What the post-constitutional America is teaching us via its institutions and entertainment outlets, is that one ought to be envious, rather than ambitious. Ambition has became a dirty word, along with profit. Thus, we have these Occupy Wall Street people covered in the fungus of envy, wanting take and destroy the fruits of ambition and profit because they’ve been brainwashed to assume ambition is ALWAYS misused just because there are poor people in the world, a marxist motivation 101, but we don’t know, because we are politically stupid and ignorant people, pass the popcorn. Thus, we have bought into this man with a symbol in ’08 and his movement, blind to the origins of his philosophy, we will march with acquired momentum to the death of liberty if we don’t wake up.

In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies. Then I woke up and became a conservative.

Rich guys beg Congress to raise their taxes

November 18, 2011 Leave a comment
 
I am so sick of this kind of idiocy.
 
First, a businessman with any sense should already know that the US Governement is a bloated, corrupt, debt-ridden ship of fools when it comes to spending.   Why give THEM money?   There are plenty of other avenues where the funds would be better used.
 
Second, instead of having the already out-of-control government MANDATE higher taxes to fuel their spending orgies, these millionaires could just VOLUNTARILY DONATE as much as they wanted!   I’ve never heard of a government turning DOWN money.    But by begging the government to mandate it for everyone, they are destroying the spirit of volunteerism that should be the driver behind these sorts of things.
 
Third – …oh, what the heck.  The idiocracy tidal wave is coming, might as well stop talking and grab a flotation device.

Success is evil, let loose the mob

September 23, 2011 Leave a comment
A Republican congressman talks about how highter tax rates cut into business profits and reinvestment, using his businesses as an example.
Rather than take his point about how high taxes help nobody and only hurt businesses, and how the problem is not a tax problem of taking more money from people but a spending problem from an out-of-control government – the biased newscaster instead merely attempts to villainize him simply for making too much money.   The article calls him out of touch with reality.     They entirely overlook his point – which is if government only taxed businesses 10 percent, he might have an extra MILLION laying around to open more stores, create more jobs, increase wages, etc.   Overtaxing small businesses is killing the job-suppliers.
Then, in a headline called “Left blogs stew over Fleming’s 400k”, people go nuts over the “crime” that a hardworking successful American makes more than they do, pushing for socialism and handouts.
Some of the comments are downright scary.   For example:
“Another liberal blogger said that the Fleming’s comments were insensitive to those who made significantly less than him. “You’re complaining that you have only eight times the median salary for American households? Boo. Frakking. Hoo,” said AddictingInfo blogger Justin Rosario. “Are you going to stand in front of a group of children that have no home and have the balls to say that you don’t feel comfortable paying a few extra thousand a year to keep them fed and off the streets?”
Answer:   Yes, Comrade Justin the neo-Communist, that is EXACTLY what we are saying.    Government has NO RIGHT to take away money from those who earned it to give to those who did not.   Stop overdramatizing them as homeless children starving on the streets (when is the last time you’ve seen that in America?) – what we’re really talking about here is Welfare and Handouts and Socialism and Communism, often given to slackers who laugh at work and effort, sitting around in whining entitlement pity-parties, claiming it is unfair that some people have earned more than they get to receive.
Another:
“How dare this guy complain about ‘only’ making 400K per year when families of 4 are living on $12,000 a year?” exclaimed blogger ABL at the liberal blog Balloon Juice.
Answer:   Dolt, he’s not complaining about his own money.    Instead, he’s complaining that even despite all those businesses he owns and revenue from them, that at the end of the day he didn’t have ANOTHER MILLION on top of it that could have been used for massive reinvestment and growth, stimulating the economy for others.    If you earn 5 MILLION dollars, and the government taxes you at 90%, and you only have 500k left over – YEAH, you SHOULD complain.    The amount relative to others is immaterial to the point – except to the truly stupid.
Another:
Daily Kos blogger points out that Fleming’s family includes four adult children between the age of 21 and 32. “So, that means he’s basically budgeting approximately $200K a year for what? Dinners out with his wife?” said Ubiquitous A.
Answer:   Who CARES what he spends his $200,000 on?   House payments, whatnot.   He is not EVIL for EARNING $200k in disposable income.   He worked up to buy and run a number of businesses, he earned it, it is his to enjoy.   I don’t care if he spends 200,000 per year on COMIC BOOKS – that is his RIGHT.
On and on.   This isn’t about whether every facet of the congressman is right, or his numbers, or if republicans or flawless.  The major elephant in the room here – which should greatly alarm ANYONE who understands history of countries before they fall – is how success is now being labeled “evil”, and how cries for socialism are drowning out all sense.
True, it is good when those who have done well are generous to those who are working their way up, but this is their CHOICE.    A righteous government cannot and should not steal one man’s honest earnings to give to another.    Notice I said “those who are working their way up”, I did not say give to those who are “less fortunate” – as fortune and luck often have little to do with it.
And yes, there are many issues afoot here – we do need tax REFORM.   And greater than that, we need to kill big-government insanity spending.     But perhaps bigger than all of those problems is the idiocracy – the stupid, liberal haters who believe whatever they’re puppeted to believe, killing all good principles and freedoms in a stampede of relativism – and how they are rushing like lemmings into the socialist sea.
As with so many countries who have lost their freedoms, a key tactic has ALWAYS been to mobilize the poor against the successful, pitting the lazy C student against the hardworking A student as if it was just “luck” and “unfair”.    Those who pass up opportunities for education (even when offered funds), hard work, job and skill improvement (I know plenty of cases of all these) are then mobilized by corrupt governments and media to hate people who have really, really worked hard, long hours and been frugal with their finances to have a better life – as if they were merely “lucky” – or even “wicked” for doing so, as we’re seeing plain as day here.    It’s the beginning of the end.
Fleming actually said it pretty well:
“Class warfare’s never created a job,” Fleming responded. “And that’s people that will not get jobs. This is all about creating jobs, Chris, this is not about attacking people who make certain incomes. You know in this country, most people feel that being successful in their business is a virtue, not a vice, and once we begin to identify it as a vice, this country is going down.”

Are Conservatives Fascist?

August 31, 2011 6 comments

If you have a well functioning brain, ignorance is not bliss. Some ignorant people are very smart and plenty of high and low IQs are cluttered and trashed by the false-information age. So the field is kinda leveled between the brainiacs and knuckleheads.  If caught early, one can point them all in the politically correct direction.

Teach them it is high-minded to “question all” – which really means only question the Judea-Christian worldview, in turn offer answers that give a false sense of enlightenment. Make them feel like it’s a journey of discovery; puff them up with a narrow band of information designed for the desired outcome and get them looking in the ‘right’ direction. Make them feel good with high self-esteem. They will be the avant garde entertaining the idea that Christopher Columbus was evil and that the American Indian lived in the true garden of Eden, if there ever really was one, with the movies. The postmodern mind splits off in a million directions after that, becoming a nebulous purple haze, a world in which making distinctions is heresy. Like, I dunno, whatever.  The vast array of connections and contradictions would take a lifetime to explore and I doubt all the knots could be untied and cut.

Ignorant ‘liberals’, both smart and not so smart, have their binoculars out. They are high on the watchtower at the universities, mainstream media, Democratic Party and Hollywood. They are adjusting and cleaning their lenses, scanning the horizon for Swastikas on the brown uniforms of jack booted, goose-stepping soldiers. They superimpose these fascistic fantasies on ‘conservatives’, Sarah Palin, and TEA Party people, guided by Bill Maher and Jon Stewart and others. They ignore, socialism, the Green Movement, union bosses, and Michael Moore types. They deem those innocent. No one is blinder than he who will not see, as those movements are rooted in fascism. Nazi is German slang for National Socialism. The reason Nazis were labeled “Right Wing” is because Joseph Stalin, the socialist dictator of the USSR, did not like them. Our ‘liberal’ press pick it up from Uncle Joe, and ran with it. To this day people still refer to Hitler as a right winger, which then gets retro-fitted on to ‘conservatives’. Socialism, communism, “progressivism”, collectivism, are the most reliable tools of fascism. That has nothing to do with the cutting edge political system founded by the signers of the Declaration of Independence or Constitution, the spirit conservatives are trying to conserve is cutting edge.

Like a blindfolded child trying to pin the fascist tale on the republican elephant, ‘liberals’ try to pin Swastikas of fascism on us as they are covered in the completely innocent Peace Sign, a symbol of hatred for Christians in Rome under Nero. A sign that was waved along with the flag of the Viet Cong flag in DC in the 60s. They call our love of country, nationalism. You’re like the Nazis! Our belief in a good nation is called jingoism. Conservatives are not the ones who brainwash young women into thinking the murder of an unborn child is humane.

Although ‘liberals’ will admit, and sometimes take pride in, a kind of egotistic fatalism and insist that truth is subjective and always contextual, they are certain ‘conservatives’ are fascist (related to Hitler/Nazis) and stupid. If not kept under strict observance, ‘conservatives’ will get out of the barn yard, grab pitchforks and crucify gay people, disembowel minority children, kill Indians and enslave black people before midnight, with that belligerent Glenn Beck leading the charge. That’s what a lot of them think, just read their comments on yahoo.

Do you think  conservatives  are just a bunch of fascist?

Politics 101: An Awakening

I gave a speech (more of a stand up routine) in McKinney, Texas at Collin County Conservative Republicans (CCCR) back in 2009. I loved doing it. It was my first captive live audience. I did not pick an easy topic. I mixed it with my style of humor to lighten things up. My talk was based on Jonah Goldberg’s book Liberal Fascism, a great book!

I know my talk upset a woman in the front row. She interrupted me two or three times. She did not want to accept what I was presenting. It did not match her worldview. Years ago, I would not have been able to grasp it either.

Below is mini-version first part of that talk, which is a brief explanation of my awakening and breaking out of modes of thought handed to me by media, music, and art. I will break up the rest of the talk in bite size pieces in the near future. Let’s see if I offend you, too.

 

H. G. Wells, who has written some great books, was the first to utter the term. He did not mean it as an oxymoron or an indictment; he meant it as a rallying cry. In his speech at Oxford in 1932, he told the Young Liberals that progressives must become “liberal fascists” and “enlightened Nazis”. Yes, you read that right. Look it up.

I’m not a master but a student of history. I’m not an armchair historian, I’m more like a barstool historian. I’m a lot like you; a regular person looking at my country and wondering what is happening and on a quest for the deep reasons why.

In the late 70s my mind was occupied with girls, I watched Happy Days and thought the Fonz was cool. I went to Rocky and Star Wars and I listened to Top 40 on KIKM, Kick ‘em. I thought John Lennon’s song “Imagine” was the real anthem. The biggest world event was the hostage crisis in Iran, the beginning of the modern Jihad, but it was far away from a teenage boy. I watched the news, ABC’s World News Tonight. It was about things happening in faraway places that I could not reach riding my bike. Even if I got the car I was dying for, I couldn’t get there. It was in a galaxy far far away. Closer to home, ABC caused me to be more worried over Ronald Reagan than Jihadist, because even in 70’s the media had a ‘liberal’ bias against ‘conservatives’. The media’s summation of Reagan said, if he could find the White House, he would stumble in, launch the Nukes at Russia, like Marvin the Martian, and blow up the earth in the process. Jimmy Carter had gone good-bye and Armageddon was obviously next, and it was all Reagan’s fault.

However, Reagan’s speeches did not match the hideous bias I heard on ABC World News Tonight and 60 Minutes. I wasn’t very discerning then. I watched Reagan’s soaring State of the Union addresses and his delightful banter with the press. He would have me pumping my fist as if I was at a Van Halen concert, then Peter Jennings, or whoever, would come on, and ruin it. I did not think Jennings had an agenda in those days. He pretended to be unbiased. I could not withstand it when they dissected Reagan speeches. No one stepped to enlighten me further on what Jennings & Co would say. Eventually Reagan won my heart and mind, anyway.
