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.

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?

Victoria Jackson: There’s a Communist Living in the White House

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.

Martin Luther King’s and Gandhi’s Non-violence

Nonviolence is a powerful and just weapon, which cuts without wounding and ennobles the man who wields it. It is a sword that heals.

The pacifism/non-violence these icons used should not be a universal truth. The non-violence used by Gandhi and MLK was a method used in correct circumstances. I don’t know if MLK would have used it in all cases, I do know Gandhi would have. If MLK or Gandhi would have tried non-violence in Taliban Afghanistan or Nazi Germany they would’ve been beheaded or gassed and thus ending their great moral movements. Pacifism assumes everyone is good at heart and reasonable, that the oppressor or tyrant only need enlightenment brought about by the suffering of the oppressed. This is rarely true in human history and endangers civilization. The Gandhi quote below proves the naiveté his non-violent pacifistic stance. He directed these words of advice to the suffering of Jews in Germany during the Third Reich.

I shudder to think what the world might look like if Gandhi had been the leader of England and not the proponent of moral violence, Winston Churchill.

“I am as certain…the stoniest German heart will melt [if only the Jews] adopt active non-violence…I do not despair of his [Hitler’s] responding to human suffering even though caused by him.” Gandhi

Granted, civil disobedience works when the goodhearted and reasonable outnumber the evil and unreasonable. It works better than violence although not immediately when you’re dealing with a Winston Churchill or Lyndon B. Johnson because there is a chance to create opportunity for reasoning together when a culture values human life. MLK appealed to the founding fathers’ principle of liberty and pointed this out to the white majority. He used the Constitution against the decedents whose forefathers wrote it. That was simple and brilliant.

Translation: I've stopped thinking. I give up.

The British ruled India, but they were basically civilized people who finally listened. They ‘tolerated’ Gandhi’s active pacifism. They let him slide. But, they knew, based on their own moral standards, that Gandhi held the moral high ground as did King. The British realized, as did Americans with the Civil Rights movement, that they were contradicting what was supposed to be their own values. That’s why it worked.

The philosophy of non-violence or pacifism only works in atmosphere where people are willing to reason. Pacifism will not work against Islamo-fascist, Nazis, drug cartels, or terrorist. I think if you move to a universal stance of non-violence it’s an immoral position and will ultimately result in murder and tyranny.

The Lie of New Age Open-mindedness

August 14, 2011 2 comments

Open-mindedness is, without question, considered a cardinal virtue of the new age. To deconstruct frameworks of understanding the world is ‘open-minded’. To tear constructs apart and leave scattered confusion is ‘unbiased’. To ignore the devastation wrought on a soul is ‘enlightenment’. To fill the void with the thin watery tasteless gruel of “the truth to you is not the truth to me” is ‘wholesome’.

I don’t consider the absolute open mind to be virtuous. Thankfully, some people are finally starting to think about it more although it is perhaps too late for our culture. Is anyone shocked that I said I don’t consider open-mindedness a virtue? Yes! Because many misunderstand the problem I have with the so-called ‘open mind’. Open-mindedness today means, “Judge not lest ye be judged” which is a biblical quote torn from context. That verse is better known than John 3:16 nowadays. Non-Christians seem to quote it more than anyone does. The quote is like Kryptonite for the well-meaning but un-thinking Christian. These days open-mindedness is, in effect, saying that making distinctions (judgments) is wrong. I think I’m morally obligated to judge. An open mind today is an ultra-hyper-tolerant mind that stands for very little because it fears being thought of as narrow-minded: fear of making distinction. The fifteen to twenty-five crowd typically desire distinction only in clothing or tattoos or hair, not in thought. They seem to crave adherence to groupthink under their various appearances of clothing and hair.

Paradoxically, the so-called ‘open mind’ today is the most pre-judgmental and intolerant of all. It wants to put everyone under an indistinguishable collective unity, the ‘correct’ – politically correct – system. It breaks down gender roles, melds all religions into one (thereby diminishing the distinctions), and insists all cultures are equal. Many, especially ‘liberals’, think that open-mindedness is one of the highest moral virtues one can have. I think open-mindedness, as it is known today, will cause your mind to be polluted.

Not all ideas are equal by virtue of mere existence. You must inspect (judge) the ideas at the gate of your mind or you will be slaughtered from the inside out. You cannot open up to everything. The old saying goes: You must stand for something or you’ll fall for anything. And wow, do we have multitudes imploding. Open-mindedness is discernment starving. Something will fill that vacuum. Unguarded minds are stuffed with uninspected cargo, weighted down but empty of understanding. Open-mindedness says nothing is objectionable. That is a lie.

What is the answer? Have an open VIEW and an ACTIVE mind.

National Suicide Prevention

August 3, 2011 1 comment

Deprive people, movements, and nations of nutrients both psychological and spiritual, send them into existence with the thin gruel of a world lacking truth and love, they will be committing suicide like Britain. Instead they smoke a pack of “No Truth”, drink a pint of “Uncertainty” and snort lines of “Existential Hopelessness” ….to stave off the pain coping with a reality they choose to ignore or just a psych bullet to the brain.

Look at secular Rock and Roll. It is not immortal. Sorry Ozzy, girl-pants-boy is participating in the self annihilation of his host, Rock and Roll, his sucking it dead dry with his postmodern quasi-angst. Just go listen to the current batch of so called Rock music. It’s not me being an old fuddy-duddy. I drive around and tune in. I explore music. I should probably grow up. There’s an oasis here and there. Mostly, the limp angst I hear in rock music today is inarticulate drivel at best because emotions are seemingly incomprehensible to the band’s lyricist, products of our headless culture. Today’s emo-rock comes off sounding like an immature little boy with a mans voice. Sounds like he is in his highchair pissed at the world because mommy took his Xbox. So now, he’s got bed-head, he’s smoking a joint and wearing girl pants. Wow, how different, what a rebel! Just turn up it loud, they’ll equate volume with authenticity.

Guess what else isn’t immune to suicide, that self destruction in London we see: The USA. Most of us think we can leave our nation untended, like a natural garden, and it’ll just keeping growing and going like the sun and seasons. To protect civilization’s vitality most just rattle off slogans, stupid slogans like “Make love not war” or “Think globally, act locally” or slap on a bumper sticker that says “COEXIST” or “Free Tibet”. We embrace the platitudes of tolerance, repeat things like “There are no absolutes”. Our civil world might make you feel good about yourself but crumble while you feel good basking in your enlightenment or bemoan someone’s so called narrow-mindedness. A large section of our cultural understanding, tolerance, and open-mindedness went to Sweden because it was upset with mommy and daddy, smoked a joint and decided America was a blight on the world because maryjane’s not legal. Grow the *eff up! Can you think of something original for a change? I’ve heard that since the 70s in unison watched my world go mad. I believed the hooey in my youthful naivete. The USA has bedhead and is wearing girl pants. Children are inconvenient and out of style. We aren’t growing in any vital area.

The USA is dead unless we  start a suicide prevention center.

Note: Eff – My ‘word’ for the F-bomb.
