PostHeaderIcon Go Britain

So, the Brits have voted to exit the EU. Good for them. Rather than threaten them, the Obamanation should offer them membership in NAFTA, an obviously better fit for them than the EU, which is in a perpetual race with the UN to see which organization can most often fail to find its arse with both hands, sans blindfold.

Even better than NAFTA membership, how about an economic (not political) union of all the major English speaking countries in the world?

IMHO, it is past time for the British derivatives among us to stop apologizing for civilizing much of the world and to take our rightful place as a proud and worthy people.

Now, if we could just get Texas to start a secession movement in the US…

PostHeaderIcon Another Attempt To Clarify

The lame-stream-media’s ignorance-based and intentional falsehoods concerning Islam are becoming intolerable. Ergo, yet another attempt on my part to simplify, clarify and render truthful the real facts about Islam…

Impremis: Islam is not a religion in the classic sense. It is an all-encompassing system intended to direct and control every aspect of the lives of its adherents. That is to say, it contains a belief system (a religion), a legal system, a governmental system and a cultural system. Therefore, to find some aspects of Islam, for instance Sharia Law, intolerable and incompatible with American values, does NOT constitute religious intolerance. Nor does outrage against killing innocent people in the name of Islam.

Item: The United States Constitution, first amendment, forbids the (federal) Congress to make any law respecting the establishment or free practice of religion. It does NOT say that we the people are somehow legally bound to tolerate the intolerable in any form or respect.

Item: The koranimal that shot up the bar in Orlando; the koranimals that shot up the party in Santa Barbara; the koranimals that attacked Burssells; the koranimals who attacked Paris; the koranimals who attacked the World Trade Center and the Pentagon; indeed, violent koranimals everywhere, are practicing Islam exactly as intended by their prophet and as prescribed by Islam’s sacred documents. It is the so-called “moderate Muslims” who are practicing a “perverted” form of Islam. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Steam Coming Out My Ears

There was so much steam coming out my ears yesterday that it almost destroyed my relatively new hearing aids.

Why, you ask (not really caring)?

Because I was listening to our Traitor-in-Chief trying to disassociate the Orlando terrorist from anything to do with Islam!

Then an obvious truth occurred to me…

Our once great nation is so far gone that an obvious traitor can serve as POTUS and that WTS and our elected representatives in the Congress are too damned stupid and/or scared to even whimper about it. That is why I have shown so little interest in the election farce currently being conducted for our entertainment.

Then an even more obvious truth occurred to me…

It really matters not who is elected (appointed, designated, etc) president because the problem is not with our so-called leaders. They only reflect the attitude and incompetence of WTS. Ergo, the problem is US and we will still be US no matter who is elected POTUS, to Congress, to local dogcatcher or whatever.

Nothing has happened to this nation that WTS did not willingly allow to happen. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon America reborn – My Main Error

As you may have noticed, I have had little to say on this topic lately. That is because it did not seem worth the effort. Then it dawned on me why… I have been focused on what SHOULD be done when the real question is, what CAN be done.

Said another way, what might a few people like ourselves actually suggest that would motivate others to get involved? A list of my initial suggestions follows:

That’s about all I have. Sorry.

PostHeaderIcon AR: Sovereignty

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

Simply stated, how should sovereignty be allocated in a reborn America? We take it as a given that all individuals should enjoy some level of individual liberty but, does this mean that every individual has the same input / influence into the governing system? For instance, should suffrage be universal or should there be some qualifications or limitations on the voting franchise?

Additionally, without presuming any specific governmental hierarchy yet assuming some manner of hierarchy will prove desirable, how should sovereignty be allocated between the various levels in whatever hierarchy results in this reborn America? How does one limit the ability of one level in a hierarchy from devouring the sovereignty of other levels? (I refer here to what has happened to current America where the Federal level of our hierarchy has effectively neutralized the sovereignty of the State and Local levels.

PostHeaderIcon AR: Funding

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

How best should the various levels of necessary government be allowed to fund themselves?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Limiting Government

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

Our Founders did a credible job of creating a workable balance between the necessity for some control (government) while still allowing maximum liberty. Yet, they soon discovered the impossibility of “keeping the genie in the bottle”. Is this, as I suspect, an inevitable flaw in any and all attempts to govern? If so, how best to keep the inevitable at bay for as long as possible? Better yet, might there be a scheme that would provide for continual rebirth without continual chaos?

Said another way, are there ways to make governmental structure more immune to the realities of human nature?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Liberty

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

I take it as a given that a reborn America must be a land of freedom. All the while recognizing that some control (government) is required. Or, as Madison observed, if men were angels…

In a word, how best to provide the necessary amount of control (government) to protect freedom, safety, etc. while minimizing the intrusion into individual liberty?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Economic System

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

What should be the primary economic system of the reborn America? How can it be made more fair while still keeping it free? What is the proper role of the State in the economic system?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Overall Structure

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

What should a reborn America look like? How much of the original structure should be kept versus how could it be improved? And why (what are the trade-offs)?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Necessity

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

Is this attempt even necessary? Might it be better to just let things continue BAU and hope for the best? Might our suggestions only make things worse?

PostHeaderIcon AR: Where / How To Begin?

[Note: Posts with titles that begin with AR: are stubs for the project described atAmerica Reborn,” which probably should be read first…]

As we think about a restructured America, we face a problem with many “circular dependencies”, making it almost impossible to determine the best way to begin each approach. As a simple “for instance”, we all know that fixing our educational system is a must. But, will an uneducated populace support the time and resources required?

PostHeaderIcon America Reborn

Dave and I have suggested a series of articles addressing the subject: What Should The New America Look Like?

This is based on the collective analysis in this blog that the current America is essentially an historical artifact that will soon degenerate into total chaos unless some new, possibly radical approaches are tried. Said another way, there is no viable path back to what we once were – and were intended to be, ergo there is no rationality in wasting the time and effort trying to do so.

Since only two of us currently have editorial privileges here, and, so that we can have multiple threads so that the discussions remain navigable, I propose to post a series of topical “stubs” to which all participants can equally contribute. What I need you folks to do is suggest a starting list of topical stubs to get the conversation started.

PostHeaderIcon Our Attempt To Find Terrorism

Obviously we survived the Netherlands and Belgium. Indeed, the only action we saw was an encounter between Dutch police and a really rough, Muslim looking fellow at the Amsterdam airport that they escorted out (no idea to where).

Otherwise, except for cool and sometimes rainy weather, the trip was great. River cruising is NOTHING like an ocean cruise. There are far fewer people, the crew get to know the guests and they have at least one included tour at every stop. Also, there is open seating in the dining room, forcing guests to get acquainted with each other.

Again unlike ocean cruises, when you stop, a local guide takes you to mostly historical sites and explains what you are seeing — rather than the wall-to-wall junk merchants one encounters at an ocean cruise port.

Once we have saved enough box tops, we hope to take another, longer river cruise. Obviously, we recommend it.

On the surface, the fare might seem a bit steep until you realize that virtually everything you want or need is included (e.g. those tours at each stop, complimentary beer and wine with meals, etc.) By contrast, the ocean cruise lines constantly nickel and dime you until what at first looked like an affordable cruise ends up costing a fortune – else you just stay in your cabin and stare out the window.

The food was good but not great. But, again, far superior to the ocean cruises that more and more serve crap in their dining rooms so that you will choose to use the expensive optional on-board restaurants instead (the river boat had no optional expensive restaurant).

PostHeaderIcon Random Comments On The Election Process

It is no secret that my participation in the very active discussions here RE the current election have been minimal. This is for the simple reason that I do not think the current sham process is worthy of much serious consideration. Having said that, I do have several comments to share, some of them repeats from previous blogs:

→ While I seriously question whether Donald Trump would make an effective president, I do thank him for making the “establishment” begin to show its true intentions. And those intentions are NOT pro-democracy, pro-republic or pro anything other than the absolute control of the nation by a small elite cabal of the wealthy, mostly in the financial sector, and not nearly all American. (The are the same people who pretty much “own” the FED.).

→ Speaking of the “establishment”, I have heard several pundits opine that the “GOP establishment” would prefer a president Hillary to a president Donald. To refer to a “GOP establishment” or a “Democrat establishment” is simply incorrect. While they both seem to exist, the fact is that there is so much overlap that it is more accurate to refer instead to “THE establishment”.

PostHeaderIcon Is ISIS Deliberately Helping Elect Trump?

Today’s attacks in Brussels has to boost Donald Trump and tends to validate most of his anti-Islam statements.

It is clear that the Western world is NOT at war with Islam. It is equally clear that Islam IS at war with the Western world.

Meanwhile, our pseudo-dictator shares cigars with a real dictator, whom he no doubt envies, and otherwise does nothing in support of his own nation or Western culture. It is still not too late to impeach this bastard then charge him with high treason. But then, can that many members of Congress grow testicles that quickly? I doubt it.

PostHeaderIcon Perhaps We Should Do Less Winning?

I spent this past weekend watching 2 grandsons compete in baseball tournaments. As is normal in present America, all the emphasis was on winning. Indeed, apparently winning is all that counts these days.

In the case of total war, I cannot help but agree. In most other cases, I am increasingly skeptical.

As my grandsons “won” some games and “lost” others, I could not help but study the obvious effects these two outcomes had on the young people playing and, to a lesser extent, on the parents watching… almost insanely euphoric in the first case and a hang-dog, give up attitude in the second.

This is the problem with a win/lose dichotomy. While it produces some winners, it always produces an equal or greater number of losers. And this in a game where NOTHING is actually won or lost except one’s very temporary pride, esteem and self confidence. Might it be better to put the emphasis on performing the best one can? Then, all who put forth a good effort can finish the day feeling good about themselves – while those who did not try would know who they are without some artificial win/lose structure.

PostHeaderIcon And The Crap Goes On

As the candidate field narrows, things get no better. Just consider a few (to me) obvious aspects of the unfolding story:

On the Democrat side, an appalling number of people are supporting an avowed socialist who promises a utopia that is so obviously impossible that one would think this is some manner of national joke. Except that he actually means it. And many well educated people who, of all people, should know better, are supporting his nonsense. I have no expectation that he will win but the simple fact that he has garnered significant support speaks very poorly of we-the-sheeple.

Of course, the Dems do offer an alternative in the form of one of the most dangerous political criminals in recent history. Even though she is being “investigated”, we can rest assured she has the political clout to remain free, dangerous, and very possibly, our next president.

PostHeaderIcon He Said What?

While driving yesterday, I happened to hear a press conference with the Obamanation.

Sometimes, it is impossible to know when to laugh and when to cry.

For instance, the Obamanation, referring to the upcoming crapfest concerning justice Scalia’s replacement, made at least 3 references to “our democracy”. This bozo is an alleged constitutional scholar and he doesn’t know that we are a republic, not a democracy?

Then, he went on to bemoan at length how Republicans are “reading the constitution and finding things that are not there”.

WHAT??

This is exactly what progressives, like Obama and Clinton, have done for over 100 years now and to the measurable detriment of our republic.

It still amazes me how people like Obama and both Clintons can stand before the American people and tell the most obvious and outrageous lies – while the MSM pretends not to notice. And while a seeming majority of Americans seem not to give a hoot.

The Republicans should have impeached this guy the day after winning back the Senate. They fact that they were (are) too cowardly to do so has left the door open to unimaginable damage yet to be done over the next 9 months.

Makes me want to puke.
