Another Facebook Encounter

LXX FXXX Hard to "work together" when the final objectives for each [Party] are polar opposites. One is based on what you received is based on production, the other based solely on your need. The former is dependent upon the latter, why kill the goose? Socialist ideas do nothing to create more but only justify why others should receive more of what they don't themselves produce. 

Brian Wilson I dunno about "polar opposites". All governments and - isms exist to dominate, enslave and force "citizens" into some form of pre-determined existence solely to serve the State. However, accomplished economically is academic. In the end, you pay and obey. That ain't Freedom.

DXXX TXXXX Brian Wilson Where do we start?

Brian Wilson I'll get back to you on that when I have more time and space! 

OK – In response to my post "All governments and - isms exist to dominate, enslave and force "citizens" into some form of pre-determined existence solely to serve the State… In the end, you pay and obey. That ain't Freedom."

DT asked the question "Where do we start".

We start by stopping.

Stop believing in and supporting the myths, fairy tails, distortions and lies accepted without question, on faith, by rote, in denial of actual facts committed right in front of us, regardless of who we are, where we were raised or how. 

The problems with Government cannot be solved by More Government!

Stop voting. It accomplishes nothing more than perpetuating the same system that's eating us alive, our loved ones and our inalienable rights. Politicians lie. Those who don't lie don't get elected. If by some glitch they get into office, they accomplish nothing and are out in the next cycle. Any objective analysis of voting will reveal: Life, Liberty and the Individual pursuit of Happiness have never been advanced as a result, regardless of what person or which Party won. Voting is merely an expensive popularity contest for those who still believe in Santa Claus, Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy.

Stop supporting legislation. Every law that actually gets passed is another bite out of Freedom. Just because it bites someone or some entity you despise is irrelevant. According to the cliché: "Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug." but at no time is Freedom advanced.

Stop believing in the miracle of a 3rd Party or Immaculately Conceived Candidates. The first never have and never will win any significant position in any respectable number to permanently benefit Freedom; the second has never and will never exist.

Stop supporting Secession. Yes, it's a tantalizing notion. But even if perfectly Constitutional by any means or statute, the Leviathan in the DC Swamp will never permit it without a repeat of the bloodshed and carnage produced the last time it was tried. Even if successful, the cost in Blood and Treasure would be incalculable. Only if unilaterally pursued by a majority of States might there be any marginal hope for a peaceful success? Whether such unanimity could even be accomplished in our politically fractured country today would be pragmatically impossible.

That leaves Revolution. But what kind? There are all sorts of "revolutions", from bloody and expensive to a silent coup such as the one recently attempted - and nearly successful - here. Regardless of version, all Revolutions require at least one thing: a compelling leader – or leaders – to unite sufficient numbers in principled support of the Cause.

It is not irrational to state: America is at a tipping point, rapidly running out of the time, patience or, most importantly, the political motivation to craft a workable solution to return to a reasonable basis for governance. The polarization of the two parties tasked with accomplishing this makes the conclusion obvious before beginning. Rising racial hostilities, a tiered, dysfunctional legal system that coddles the Powerful while crushing the Little Guy; government 'injustices for all', fermented in envy, ignorance and instant gratification, distilled, refined and distributed by a biased, unprincipled media blinded by its own power to influence irrespective of truth, balance and integrity.

Where do we start? Find Leaders dedicated to restoring Freedom and Liberty with the guts to accomplish it by any means. The caveat: not only will it be difficult to find and call out such individuals, but the effort itself is also dangerous. The Patriot Act and other laws provide cover for Government prefects to move swiftly, without legal accountability, against anyone fomenting plans to overthrow our current "form of Government".

Our Declaration of Independence plainly stipulates "…that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…" (emphasis added) As Stephen Lucas' annotation states, this clause "outlines a general philosophy of government that justifies revolution when government harms natural rights."

Sadly, the Statist mindset or, at minimum, Cognizant Dissonance is firmly set in the minds of too many Americans. Any suggestion of "altering or abolishing" this corrupted Government acting destructively toward our inalienable rights is most likely to evoke gasps or horror and fear rather than resolution, courage, and initiative – beyond snarky Facebook comments anyway.

We "start" with ourselves measuring our own resolution. If sufficient, we seek out like-minded individuals amongst ourselves. An "idea whose time has come" is purported to be among the strongest forces in the Universe, compelling beyond resistance. If one agrees that Idea's time has indeed arrived, we start by acting accordingly.

If not, stay in the hand basket and enjoy what's left of the ride.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 

An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.

We have only one choice to save America and th…

A Doctor - Patient conversation

A  Doctor is explaining the pandemic to a coma patient who just woke up…

Dr: “They shut down the world because of a worldwide pandemic.”
Patient: “OMG! How many people are infected?”
Dr : “About 11 Million.”
Patient: “OMG! 11 million people died?”
Dr: “No, only 500 thousand… Kind of.”
Patient: “What do you mean ‘kind of’?”
Dr: “Well… they keep halving the number of deaths due to double counting, inaccurate tests and mislabeled death certificates. Also, most of the people that die are elderly and dying of other things. There are also people who died because of incorrect ventilator use and other treatments because no-one really understands the virus.”
Patient: “I don’t get it. So how many died from ONLY the virus… like literally dropped dead in the street?”
Dr: “No-one. Only in hospitals and nursing homes”
Patient: “I don’t get it.”
Dr: “Neither do I, it’s a very confusing time.”
Patient: “So they cured the other 11 million people then?”
Dr: “No, most didn’t have any symptoms and in fa…

Gillette, Toxic Masculinity and the F Word

The Gillette "Toxic Masculinity" commercial not-so-subtle lecturing men (their primary clientele) about being Kinder, Gentler Wussies the company says they should be is rapidly fading into the dust of Catholics and Indians, yesterday's news. But before the Forgettable is actually forgotten, here are a couple hardly-mentioned observations about why this TV spot got its embarrassing 15 minutes of fame.
