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.

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?

Rise of Apes Fighting Big Pharma

The movie is unique in that it’s made without any connection to the original. It’s a new experience completely, while it winks at the original 1968 movie in the dialog. It’s earth-based and sets up a wholly new enterprise. Andy Serkis, of Lord of the Rings renown, plays the CGI chimp Caesar and steals the show from the real cast. Another Oscar for Peter Jackson’s Weta Digital is possible, I think.

Watching Caesar is reason enough to go see the movie. Emotions conveyed in
Caesar’s face are touching and stunning, a marvelous achievement.

The screenplay is mostly solid but a little wobbly toward the end. It begins with Will Rodman (James Franco) working on a DNA based cure for Alzheimer’s. He discovers a serum that repairs and enhances the brain. A female chimp, used as a lab rat, shows promise. Things go bad—“surprise”—and investors flee. The evil corporate master, except for a baby male stolen away like Moses by Rodman, orders the chimps put down. Rodman agonizing over his father’s deterioration from Alzheimer’s administers the serum to him, he’s cured. Then, Rodman discovers the baby chimp has inherited the brain-enhancing DNA from the mother. Five years later Caesar is removed and sent to a place that rehabs chimps raised in the circus etc. The apes are tormented by an evil “zoo keeper”…surprise.

Caesar becomes a “union organizer”. You can smell jailbreak like a clogged commode in the theater. Chaos ensues. The apes rampage out of their cages into San Francisco. Hide your wife, hide your children.

The story moves on with some plot gadgetry so that the apes can do what the do, but it’s endurable because the story is compelling enough.

The bad guys are agonizingly cliché, Big Pharma (or Big Business) serves as the all-too-familiar antagonist from Hollywood’s grab bag of cooking cutter villains. “Hillbillies” being mean to the apes come from a Hollywood screenplay writer’s narrative of the TEA Party (people in the fly-over states), cut off sleeves, angry, stupid, and white. The police, again, serve as the blind force of ignorance and oppression. You’ve seen this movie. I’m surprised Caesar wasn’t hauled off to shape up in Catholic school, another Hollywood cliché for psychological damage and bad science.

After a solid set up the story-structure became a little wobbly in the last few minutes. I had to fill in the blanks with plausible off-stage events played out in my mind to give it some underpinning.

These apes had a flaw. They just flat weren’t menacing enough. They have fights amongst themselves and Caesar organizes them, leads them in a revolt. But the apes are self-actualizing and not really scary like the apes of ’68.

Caesar becoming a spokesape for PETA is feasible in the sure-to-come sequel.
