Why Not Socialism? # 1

Wake-Up America!

America’s Government funded and socialized public education system is not acculturating your children to our historical ways of life, economy and government.

As a result, increasing numbers of your children and youth have learned that socialism is the best form of economy and government on earth. Therefore America should become a socialist society. 

The following series will demonstrate, with facts and examples, that socialism is awful and tends to progress to communism, which is even worse yet! 

Thanks to Prager University for creating the videos that will be displayed in this series about the universal failure of socialism. 

Please share this blog with everyone you know.

Then do your duty! Go to the polls and vote the socialists out of all levels of America’s government!

Leftists Democrats = Ghetto “Snoop Dogg”!

October 4, 2018

Leftists Democrats = Ghetto “Snoop Dogg”!

Here comes some of Dr. Tom’s reality therapy again!

It ain’t pretty, in fact it is flat-out ugly. But, it is reality and you need to perceive it if you would like to conduct life in a rational fashion.

The so-called “Snoop Dogg”, a hunk of effluence straight-out-of the Ghetto, perfectly illustrates the disguised and polished public attitude and verbal behavior of many democrats.

Of course, this includes the majority of the so-called celebrities of the entertainment media, the “talking heads” in the news media, the vast majority of college professors, and our governmental “Deep State” leftist operatives (life-time appointed and hired by past employers and other leftist revolutionary’s who are who are squarely dedicated to destroying our Constitutionally governed America).

Now, if you are a sissy “snow-flake”, unable to deal with real-world, profane and politically incorrect speech…ya better not read what Snoop attack-Dogg had to say about Kayne West,  who supports our duly elected American President, Donald Trump.

Here is a dose of reality: Remember the ol’: “saying: Birds of a feather stick together”?

It is certainly so with politics. Here is a look at what lays under the polished rhetoric of the leftist revolutionary democrats who will do anything to destroy our Constitutional Government.

Warning: Don’t open the URL below if you are not adult enough to read Snoop attack-Dogg’s “F”, “N”, “M-F”, gehtto B.S.. Just put your head in the sand and believe that all is well in America.

The Truth about False Memories

September 27, 2018

The Truth about False Memories

I was 17 years old and a proud member of the U.S. Naval Reserves in my home town. I had been to boot camp and now it was time for me to do a summer cruise on a Destroyer Escort, out of Chicago Illinois. We were to cruise up the middle of Lake Michigan, into Lake Huron and on to Owen Sound Canada. It was a great adventure that I will never forget.

I loved visiting the town of Owen Sound. It was so quaint and I had the strongest feeling that I had been there before. It was so very familiar and oddly comforting to me.

I clearly recall standing at the top of a gentle hill with a two-lane road running down through a lovely small town, with stores and shops along the way. At the end of the road was a long dock stretching out into a large blue bay of Lake Huron, stretching far beyond.

I recall telling my beloved Grandmother all about my cruise and she happily told me she was born and lived in Owen Sound Canada as a young child. I was stunned! It was an amazing revelation for me.

Now, with Grandma gone, and in my own 76th year, I cannot count the number of times that I have told this fantastic story to family and friends. I had never been to Owen Sound before in my life and so to me it was a miraculous event.

Later, when I attended college and studied psychology, starting in 1965, I formulated a theory to explain my powerful sense of deja vu while looking into the small picturesque town of Owen Sound, Canada. I came to believe there could be some underlying genetic structure to the memory.

Others, over the passing years, were fascinated with my experience and my theory.

This summer, my brother and his wife drove to Owen Sound to research my Grandmother’s family who lived there for a time. I asked them to take a picture of this scene that I recalled from my 17th year, when I visited there.

I was thunder-struck when they returned with photographs of the town and the area and reported that all they could find was a cement industrial area with a long commercial cement loading dock and no hill, no two lane road and no quaint stores along its sloping way down to a wooden dock reaching out to a beautiful bay. They were disappointed and I was flabbergasted!

To this very day, I am completely unable to explain the great clarity and deep belief in my false memory of Owen Sound, Canada.

Later as a Professor of Psychology at Indiana University at South Bend, a distinguished visiting professor ,Elizabeth Loftus, presented her ground-breaking research on the topic of false memories to the faculty of our Psychology Department and later to our student body.

The following Wikipedia article summarizes some of Dr. Loftus’ findings on false memories and on repressed and recovered memories. It also documents the hazards of questioning cherished beliefs based upon scientific findings. Dr. Loftus has been sued (she was vindicated) and threatened with harm for demonstrating that our memories are not video recordings of realities, but are malleable and imperfect attempts to capture and recall life’s often subjective and misleading events.

The facts are clear: Memories, as well as so-called repressed and recovered memories, can be very inaccurate. Sometimes with tragic consequences for all of those involved. Much as we see playing-out today in the confirmation hearing of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

Please see the following about Dr. Loftus and her research.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Loftus

Decades of research have not validated the existence of repressed and recovered memories in humans.

Please read this short summary of these research findings below.

If you are so inclined, I invite you to read the entire article The following italicized quoted paragraphs are to be found in the article’s URL located right below it. 

     Sociological understandings of the influence authority figures and groups may have on an individual’s belief system have provided insight into the mechanism by which mental images may be taken to be actual memories. A growing number of books and articles by philosophers of science have decried the misuse of science and over-reliance on anecdotal evidence in this area. Some have cited “repressed memories” as an example of “pseudoscience.” [18] In short, the theory of “repression” has been widely critiqued by professionals in many related scientific disciplines, each concluding that the theory does not conform to well-established findings in their own area.

     Most memory researchers are in agreement on this matter. In a legal brief filed by R.C. Barden, Ph.D., J.D. in the case of Taus v. Loftus, [19] more than 65 scientists and clinicians, a “Who’s Who” in the world of psychiatry, psychology and cognitive science, agreed with the inclusion of the following clear statement: [20]

    Decades of research and scientific debate have clarified over and over again, that the notion of traumatic events being somehow “repressed” and later accurately recovered is one of the most pernicious bits of folklore ever to infect psychology and psychiatry.

    The signers represent the relevant scientific community for theoretical disputes if the issue is a claim of repressed and recovered memory.

   Both scientists and the proponents of the belief in repression and recovered memories present studies that they claim support their conflicting positions. In fact, both sides frequently cite the same articles but reach different conclusions about them. This is a very confusing situation for non-scientists, including potential jurors. (For a clear discussion about basic concepts involved in the interpretation of research findings that explain the fallacies of non-scientific interpretation. See H. Pope, Psychology Astray.

The implications of these findings for the undocumented, unproven accusations of sexual improprieties against Judge Kavenaugh should be clear to all who wish to honestly evaluate the available data.

Wake-Up America!

America: Addicted to Drugs and Drug Money.

September 24, 2018

America: Addicted to Drugs and Drug Money

I have been very busy in the last few weeks and my blog rate has diminished. But, there is more to my recent bout of editorial malaise.

I admit that I am becoming dispirited. It has been said that “the pen is mightier than the sword”. It is not. Just take a pen and go-up against a man with a sword.

Yes, I understand the symbolism of that statement.

Now let me see if you understand the symbolism of my statement that follows: The pen is also not mightier than drugs, and drug money!

I know someone who used marijuana recreationally in their younger years in college who now, as a drug abstinent middle-aged adult at a party, was invited to take a puff from one of those new-fangled electronic cigarettes (e-cigarettes). My friend was curious and reported taking one puff that he inhaled and then had to  spend the next 40 minutes alone in his car, trying to recover from an amazingly powerful marijuana high. He had been duped into getting so high on one puff of vaporized marijuana oil that he had to escape to his car to gain privacy and to recover from the experience.

It is a fact that the power of modern marijuana products have increased dramatically.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4987131/

I was recently in a gathering where a younger adult was happily discussing the various ways in which recreational marijuana was being marketed (cookies, candy gummies,  etc.). My mention of the increasing number of children who have found and eaten such “goodies” and ended up in medical emergencies was ignored. 

The following short articles document the child-marijuana problems in France and America.

https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/edible-marijuana-products-pose-risks-to-children-annals-of-emergency-medicine-study-finds-300562094.html

Recreational marijuana is being legalized in more and more states. Its sales are being taxed by our governments, investors are getting rich off stock purchases in marijuana production, retail businesses, and other legalized marijuana enterprises.

Marijuana is rapidly being woven into the fabric of America’s culture and economy. This is likely paving the way for the legalization of other recreational drugs.

https://apnews.com/032c53df79c64b9185c63a4f74a6c18d/It’s-high-times-for-soaring-marijuana-stocks-on-Wall-Street

I was hoping that I would gain a small cathartic/therapeutic effect from writing this blog. I did not.

The legalized-drug-shit is already hitting the American fan and too many voting citizens are either happy to see it come, or they are oblivious to the damage it is already doing.

I judge that the current damaging effects of America’s illegal drug consumption will now be magnified by the delayed effects of legalized recreational drugs. Without miraculous change, the synergism of all of this, along with the countless other political and social problems we are experiencing will be ruinous to America.

Please share this blog with family and friends.
