So Much For the “Wisdom of The People”!

October 31, 2013

So Much For the “Wisdom of The People”!

America’s Founding Fathers placed their devout faith in God and in the educated wisdom of their fellow voting citizens.

If you will read the article accompanying this stunning video, you will not only learn something about the social psychology of petitioning,  you will also learn about the consequences of modern America failing  to properly educate and acculturate its own citizens.

Here, you will see one of the horrific major causes of our American decline.

Wake-Up America!

Our Commander in Chief Liar: “If You Like Your Insurance, You Can Keep It!”

October 29, 2013


Our Commander and Chief Liar: “If You Like Your Insurance, You Can Keep It!”

For God’s-sake people!

How many lies, how much deceit, how many betrayals of trust? How much evil in the form of dishonesty, incompetence, and  treason (Benghazi) will we tolerate?!

Where is the outrage?!

It would be more comfortable for many to think that President Obama, our Commander in Chief Liar and bumbling incompetent, is the one who is accidentally destroying America. But, that is not true on at least two accounts.

First, he is very skillfully, in Saul Alinsky and Antonio Gramsci Marxist style, dismantling America’s Constitutional Republic. If you do not know Alinsky and Gramsci, you must Google their names in order to understand the behavior of America’s President Obama.

Second, ultimately, It is America’s woefully ignorant voting public that is destroying this last great hope for modern Western Civilization. After-all, it is the American electorate that has given Obama a full eight years to kill their own socioculture.

The following is only the most recent example of Obama’s numerous shameful activities. He is now pushing immigration reform as a way to divert attention from the accumulating evidence of his various impeachable actions.

See the following proof-positive documentation of our American President’s sociopathic nature, clearly manifested in his lies about “Obamacare”.

A Musical Tribute To Johnny: Long May You Run

October 27, 2013

A Musical Tribute To Johnny: Long May You Run

Our dear friend John Koellner has passed away. If anyone makes it to heaven, I am certain that he did.

He enjoyed simple and basic things. He loved the wind in the trees, the smell of fall, crickets chirping in the cool night air, a good wood fire, Notre Dame football, telling stories about Uncle Pep, more stories about adventures and misadventures with brothers Pat, Paul and Bill; a flying clay pigeon skillfully blown to smoke, a fine steak, a great homemade pizza, fine literature, early American history, a good crossword puzzle, his students and teaching chemistry; a “larapin-good” mustard and baloney sandwich, Father Pedro’s old music radio program from N.D., A Prairie Home Companion and news from Lake Wobegon; and the movies Quiet Man, A Christmas Story and Stalag 17, his precious weber grills and own masterfully cooked feasts.

Johnny didn’t wear his emotions on his sleeve, but they ran deep to his core. He was honest and loving to his family and friends and he focused upon the beauty of the world through science and his intense appreciation of nature.
He was a patriot and seldom missed a vote.
If you were ever in need, or in trouble, he was there for you. In these things he was selfless.

 John was an intellectual with a Bachelor’s Degree and two Master’s Degrees from the University of Notre Dame. Though it was not apparent to strangers, he was a quietly passionate man. He could be pretty stubborn if anyone tried to push him. If you irritated him enough, he would likely let you know it with his signature phrase, known to most of his intimates: “Up-Yours”!  Sometimes he’d say this just for fun and then give-out with a big laugh.

Finally he was a humble and unassuming devoted Catholic. He and his wonderful wife Patti, his spiritual soul-mate, had four outstanding children and (so-far) ten grandchildren and counting. I know that Patti and their entire close extended family will carry-on all of these grand religious and family traditions and nothing will ever change that.

Finally, John had “a thing” for very old men and he enjoyed a couple of paintings in his home of old men sitting, with canes and pipes, in humble settings peacefully enjoying each other’s company.

Neil Young is one of our favorite singer/songwriters. Just as in his following rendition of “Long May You Run”, I know that John’s legacy will run forever. I also know that he would have appreciated the crusty looking old man who Neil Young has become, as you will see in this video.

We hope you will enjoy this musical tribute to John.

God’s Blessings to you and you loved ones.

America: The Greatest Country In The World?!

October 25, 2013

America: The Greatest Country In The World?!

Thanks to my dear sister-in-law Linda for sending me the video that is highlighted and critiqued in the following article.

I believe that I blogged this video sometime ago. But, with over 1000 blogs on my site, I cannot remember the title I may have given it and therefore cannot easily know that I did so.

Nevertheless, this provocative video is worthy of a possible repeat performance, or certainly a first presentation.

Know that there is some bad language in this video and that, at first glance, much of it will ring emotionally true. However, a deeper analysis of the video will yield a disguised undercurrent of leftist/liberal/progressive propaganda that is easily overlooked by the viewer.

Please take time to read the surrounding short article and then view the video that is carefully critiqued in Joe Miller’s article. In that way you will be able to watch the video from a more critical and informed perspective.

In my view, we are still the greatest nation on earth, but for many reasons, we are in acute danger of slipping into the trash-bin of history.

Wake-Up America!

An American Collapse By Spring 2014?!

October 22, 2013

An American Collapse By Spring 2014?!

You can be certain that I do not know the truth of what you are about to see and hear.

When the USSR collapsed, no one saw it coming. It just happened with no warning. No one, including the so-called experts “knew what hit them”.

This is very often the way such things happen according to my research into the collapse of great societies.

Could this happen to America?

It is hubris in the extreme to assume that it could not.

Would President Obama organize, plan-for and precipitate such a catastrophe?

It would be foolish to firmly believe otherwise, in light of all that Obama has thus far done to deconstruct our Constitutional Republic of America.

You simply must consider the following video presentation. Then look to the right panel of other videos of a similar theme and take the time to sample their content.

In the final analysis, the truth is unknowable at this moment.

It is up to each individual to estimate the probabilities involved and make their own plans for a very uncertain future.

Thanks to brother Mark for sending me a video that lead to these documented concerns.


We Have Lost A Dearest Friend

We Have Lost A Dearest Friend

Our entire family is very saddened by the loss of one of our dearest friends to cancer.

I will say more about this great loss to the quality of our lives following his funeral on Oct. 24, 2013.

Nothing lasts forever and the existence of our loved ones is far more fragile than we normally dare to see.

Let us refresh our mindful focus to love, appreciate  and enjoy all of the special people in our lives.

Our Dear John Koellner is now in heaven with his precious Lord….His only God, who he devoutly worshiped during all of his 70 years on earth.

We wish God’s Blessings and precious comfort to all of John’s family and his many friends.

Soaring like an eagle! Enjoy the Fantasy

Soaring like an eagle! Enjoy the Fantasy

My brother Mark and I have enjoyed the same dream for decades. We can fly!

We do so by flapping our arms in a slow rythmatical fashion and breathing in a special way. It is important to breath out when you are bringing your arms downward.

We enjoy amazing our friends and various onlookers.

You should try it. It is simply a wonderful ability that very few humans can learn. If you are ever interested in lessons, just ask us. We will be delighted to teach you.

Until you learn to fly on your own, you might enjoy watching others do so. Vicarious pleasures will  sustain you until you can join these brave souls.

However, you will note that these flyers are cheating in that they are using artificial means to keep them in the air.

Mark and I can fly without such props. This, of course, is a much more challenging skill set!

Never the less, please do enjoy their fledgling attempt!

P.S. Thanks to Lee Hornack for sending this to me.
