The Cult of Ignorance

We have fallen into the bad and unquestioned habit of thinking that our educational system is broken, but it is working on all cylinders. What our educational system aims to produce is cultural amnesia, a wholesale lack of curiosity, history-less free agents, and educational goals composed of content-free processes and unexamined buzz-words like "critical thinking," "diversity," "ways of knowing," "social justice," and "cultural competence."

A most excellent article. Read it here.

Conundrum

 Free people are not equal.  Equal people are not free.  (Think this one over and over…makes sense!)      

"A gun is like a parachute.  If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."  

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.  

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America :    

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.      

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.      

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.      

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.      

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.      

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries.      

Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.      Makes you wonder who is doing the math.      

    These three short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:      

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.      

Funny how that works.  And here's another one worth considering…      

2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money   !     What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.      

Think about it.....and Last but not least   :      

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping or even cutting the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.  

Am I the only one missing something?

Going To The Bathroom

My guess is that Donald doesn't use all that many public toilets, but if he thinks there has been so little trouble so far, just wait. We all may be wading in it to our ankles soon enough.

Donald, like many of us, may not embrace the idea of discretionary restrooms and showers, but we tend to give people the benefit of the doubt. The reality of our situation is however different from our idealized perceptions. What was a rare occurrence will now become demonstrable, just as we have seen with most of these type issues. They will be lining up to see exactly how far they can push this. It is not about tolerance or even acceptance. It is about forced capitulation, a demand that we surrender our values for theirs...under penalty of law.

Europeans were proud in their values of tolerance and acceptance and obviously bent over backwards to not only accommodate extremely diverse cultures, but embrace them. In return they now find their good will as an on ramp for immigrants to flood into their countries and demand not only acceptance or even embrace, but dominion over their hosts.

This is why the world has not evolved into an empathetic and loving world, but one of suspicion and distrust of those who do not share their values. In a real world no one wants to be equal. They will say they do if they perceive they are less than equal, but equality is never enough. Species seek dominion over their surroundings and especially those they see as competitors. This is what we call "racism", and it exists for a reason. Real racism is the belief that your kind are superior to others and while many will see this as hatefully, it is also demonstrably true in many cases for many factors. If we win a race, we feel superior and have proven it so, but this doesn't mean we want those whom we just outran dead or enslaved. Progressives use the term racism to infer that one group wants to do another harm when in reality most do not. They simply want to succeed, and will resist and work to defeat those who they see as deterring that success. Cells of our body that resist the invasion of foreign cells are racist in nature. They actually put their welfare ahead of others. The ultimate hate crime. And to think I wouldn't want a 200lb man with a boner in my daughter's school shower. What a hater I am!

A Year Later (Review)

(Originally published: March 4, 2015)

Slouching Toward Extinction

With all the Cheers and Jeers of C-PAC 2015 fading into Yesterday’s News, let us carpe the diem to add to the growing list of oxymoronic fantasies in desperate need of extinction, a term heard early and often whenever conservatives and libertarians congregate: “Limited Government”. Like “settled science”, the Tooth Fairy and Honest Politicians, not only is there no such thing, there never has been.

The utter nonsense that a piece of parchment, even inscribed with swell ideas, can successfully “limit” the Leviathan, i.e. Big Government has been proven ludicrous for 226 years; considerably longer if we include all recorded human history. Like Shelley’s Dr. Frankenstein, the Bush and Obama administrations brought to life Government as “a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” Constitutional “protection” of our natural rights from Government trampling has morphed from an American ideal fortified by the Rule of Law into a Bad Joke inflicted by the increasing immorality inherent in the leaders of a crumbling empire; a tragedy being acted out in the daily news to an audience that only craves bread and circuses. And cute Budweiser commercials.
