To Ladies: “Buy A  Shotgun! From Biden the Buffoon.

Do not miss this video comparing the 12 ga. shotgun with the AR-15 in the hands of women.

Don’t you dare miss this one! What a hoot. You will belly laugh in the end!

Unless you are experienced and comfortable with 12 ga. shotgun…you may not do as well as “Commando Biden” says you will!

Obama’s Motto and The Sequester Non-Crisis

February 28, 2013

Obama’s Motto and The Sequester Non-Crisis

“Never let a good crisis go to waste”.  The former is a quote. It is easy to infer from his behavior patterns, that the following is another of his mottos: If there is not a big crisis, manufacture one and then inflate it to the best of your ability.

We have a pathological liar, a cheat, a revolutionary socialist and a narcissistic personality disordered president in the Whitehouse.

Wake-Up America!

Demographic Bomb Is Exploding: America’s Baby Bust Could Bust America!

Demographic Bomb Is Exploding: America’s Baby Bust Could Bust America!

Johnathan Last is a demographic expert. His work confirms my own less authoritative deductions arrived at during my research into the decline of America, starting in 1984. He writes of a dearth of fertility in modern societies that could produce a catastrophic future around the globe.

He appears to be more hopeful for our ability to survive this demographic juggernaut than I am.

The reason I am more troubled about this factor  is that it is strongly catalytic to bad behavioral contagion mechanisms and, ultimately, also to the sociocultural entropy consequences that are destroying America’s viability.

I hope you will scroll back in my blogs and follow my 6 section sequence on America’s Decline —and integrate that information with what I  am presenting to you in this present blog. It is imperative that you take the time to both read the article and view the video which is shown below.

Just For Fun: We Have Adult ADD and We Work Hard!

ADD and ADHD has run in my family for generations.

Dear sister Jana sent me this video and it is marvelously funny to those of us who struggle to stay organized and productive.

There are many causes of  these disorders.

Please watch this video and commiserate with us over this very common human condition. One that may eventually be coming your way, for one reason or another.

Just for fun!

Joe Biden: Buffoonery in Fire Arms and Tactical Training.

February 21, 2013

Joe Biden: Buffoonery in Fire Arms and Tactical Training.

The news this past few days has repeatedly shown Joe Biden lecturing the public on the topic of guns and protecting your home. This man is a true hoot! But be careful he just might get someone you care about raped or killed.

When speaking of someone, or more,  assaulting his home…he said he told his wife:

1. “If there is ever a problem”!  This statement is a rather open one. A Problem?

  • A flat tire?
  • Furnace doesn’t work?
  • Ya don’t like our daughter’s boy friend?
  • What kind of problem? ….Anyway…

2. “Just walk-out on the balcony here, walk-out!”

  • Don’t call 911?
  • Ruin the element of surprise?
  • Abandon effective cover?
  • Declair your womanhood?

3.  “Put that double barrel shotgun and fire two blasts outside the house”! This ungrammatical sentence is a quote.

  • Show your assailants that you have a short-range weapon?
  • Show your assailants that you have a weapon that only holds two shots?
  • Show your assailants that you have shot your weapon empty?

I have to wonder if there is anymore shells (ammo) in the house. Joe is big on restricting ammunition. I have to wonder if he ever trained his wife on how to remove the spent shells and reload quickly. I have to wonder if he ever trained his wife to shoot a powerful and strongly recoiling shotgun.

What would be your guess?

He finished his lesson by telling us that we do not need a AR-15 with lots of bullets, that is hard to shoot…Just get a double barrel shotgun!

If you listen to ol’  “Have Gun Will Travel”  Joe, you have just about done everything wrong.

Good luck to you and Joe!

Take a couple of minutes and have some more fun with goofy Joe Bidden. The  man who is only one-heart-beat from the Presidency of the United States of America.

An Eternal Truth?

An Eternal Truth?

View online at: http://patriotpost.us/fqd/16794
The Patriot Post: Voice of Essential Liberty
“If, from the more wretched parts of the old world, we look at those which are in an advanced stage of improvement, we still find the greedy hand of government thrusting itself into every corner and crevice of industry, and grasping the spoil of the multitude. Invention is continually exercised, to furnish new pretenses for revenue and taxation. It watches prosperity as its prey and permits none to escape without tribute.”–Thomas Paine, Rights of Man, 1791

Perhaps nowhere on earth, at any time on earth, has a government and its people been so alert and on guard to the forces of governmental tyranny as in early America.

Look at us now..I learned this morning on the news that our government is attempting to pass a national law making it illegal for businesses NOT to hire ex-convicts. The avarice for governmental control and intrusion has always gone well beyond tax matters.

Part Seven: Was I right in 1994? Am I right in 2013?

February 17, 2013

Part Seven: Was I right in 1994?  Am I right in 2013?

These are not easy questions to answer.

No matter what your conclusion, you will be told by many that you are flat-out wrong. As Thoreau once said: “You will be flogged for your nonconformity”,  in this case by the liberal, permissive spirit of our times.

You can expect be ridiculed and belittled, or perhaps vilified, if you do not go along with the crowd. You will need the courage of your convictions in order to stand your ground against critics who will thusly assail you if you choose to speak the truth you know.

But courage of convictions alone is insufficient. What are the bases of your convictions? Do you have a broad and comprehensive enough sample of the experiences and data resources necessary to substantiate your convictions. It is not enough to have strong convictions; can you support them in a rational data-based manor?

I have recently re-surveyed much of data that I evaluated starting in 1984, in order to reach my conclusions that were published in my 1994 newspaper article. There were a few improvements in the data-base I used, but they were not reassuring. Regretfully,  I have found more reasons than before to reinforce my grave concerns both then and now.

For example, the violent crime rate has declined. However, This is likely because we are keeping serious criminals in jail for longer prison terms (the three strikes and your-out-law), in the face of increased violent crime levels of vastly more citizens have now armed themselves with guns and also our aging population will naturally become somewhat less violent.

 Teenage pregnancies are reduced, but contraception is more available and increased rates of oral/anal sex is occurring at younger ages. Also, pregnancies among unmarried young woman have increased.

Child abuse is reported to have been reduced: I do not believe it. As a referring psychologist I know that CPS is stressed to the max and  overwhelmed with reports of neglect and abuse. With my reporting experiences, fewer cases are being “substantiated” because the           standards of proof have been raised.

Other measure of sociocultural health have improved very little or they have gotten worse.

Make your own observations, do your own research, Goggle the data on typical social indicators of cultural health and see what they teach you.

Also, ask yourselves the following:

Note that the reference point for “in the past”, or “before”, is 1994. The reference point for the 1994 assessment was the 1960 and before.

__________________________________________________________

Is home life for our children more secure?

Is their academic performance better than it has been in the past?

Do our children know America’s history and understand our Founding Father’s dream of an enduring Constitutional Republic?

Can they intelligently discuss the pros and cons of Capitalism and   our Constitutional Republic in contrast to other available forms of government?

 

Are our children less drug and sex involved?

Are our families more stable than in the past?

Is our media less sexualized, violent, profane and more respectful of others than in the past?      

 

Is marriage as popular as it once was?

Is cohabitation and children out of wed-lock up or down?

Is our population as dedicated to morality and personal responsibility as it was?

 

Are you safer in your homes, communities, and during travel that you  once were?

Are moral and religious influences growing or diminishing?

Are we placing more or fewer citizens in our jails and prisons?

How is our economy doing?

Are our poverty rates for adults and children diminishing?

 

Keep an eye on our fertility rates. They have been dropping since these data were first collected. If it were not for immigration (legal and illegal) we would be below replacement rates with dire social, economic consequences and geopolitical troubles on the way. How precarious is our position with regard to population fertility?

How can a welfare state care for the infirmed, poverty stricken, indigent and aged without a large and vibrant youthful working class?

Do we enjoy more personal freedoms now than before?

Are American citizens more cohesive and dedicated to mutual respect  and support than before?

Is America’s place as a leader in the world as strong and secure as it     was?

Is the American currency as strong and secure as it was?

Is our Military as strong and secure as it was?

Can we trust our political leaders and our news media as once did?

_________________________________________________________

My list things-to-consider when evaluating the state of America’s socioculture is not exhaustive. I hope you will add to this list in your own evaluative process.

In my judgment the health and viability of America is badly impaired, and I fear that the worst is yet to come. I cannot tell you how sorry I am to have been forced by the evidence, over the past three decades, to this sad conclusion.

I hope you will soon take a couple of hours, get to your computer and gather your own data, upon which to base your judgments. Be careful not to “cherry pick”. Sample a wide variety of data sources and judge the strength of the preponderance of the evidence.       

Then, if you then share my grave concerns, please go and do whatever you can to improve America’s chances for survival.

Gun Confiscation: Do Not Let This Happen To America!

You must see this..registration has evolved to confiscation just as predicted in one of the cultures most resembling our own.

Loosing The Battle To Save America: Part Six

February 15, 2013

Stopping The Wreck: Professor’s Research Builds A Case That We’re Losing The Battle To Save American Society

By Bob Caylor of the News Sentinel, Fort Wayne In., November 17, 1994

This is the continuation of the newspaper article explaining my research and theories on America’s decline

Part Six

THE CLOSING WINDOW

The time for change is growing short. Our opportunities to avert disaster are being frittered away every day. Mawhinney can’t foresee and won’t guess how long it could be until our burdens overwhelm resources. He even hedges on his own theory; he won’t call it anything more than “tentative” or “provisional”, and he hasn’t published any papers on it yet.

But he is willing to say the key to surviving is to manage our own cultural evolution in a way that no other culture ever has. We need to learn to measure our own cultural health by keeping tabs on crime rates, birth rates, and marriage and divorce statistics, among other indexes.

The media and government need to dwell on these statistics they way they now dwell on economic indicators.

And finally, society as a whole will have to figure out how to encourage behavior that helps it survive.

“With regard to our own culture, we must work swiftly. Critical….indicators, imperfect though they may be, strongly suggest that time is not on our side,” he wrote in the draft of one paper.

And he can’t even guarantee that it isn’t too late already. “We must work diligently, thought the full benefits of our own labor may have to await the emergence of…cultures which are yet to live”.

_____________________________________________________________________________

This is the end of this 1994 article.

I hope it has stimulated your thinking with the goal of improving America’s chances of surviving long and well into the future, in an increasingly hostile and dangerous world.

There will soon come a Part Seven to this sequence. In Part Seven, I will try to assess the validity and reliability of my data-based theoretical work from 1984 to 1994, when this article was published. I will also attempt to see how it fits with our experiences of life in America during this day. I wonder what you think.
