Why There Is No Good News

July 30, 2014

Sitting In U.P. Wondering Why There Is No Good News

Sitting for morning coffee at the Ramsay Farm in Michigan’s U.P., the family wondered why there are no exclusively “good news” sources. One person said, “It would not sell”. Another said, “There are probably good news places, but we don’t know about them”.

Well, there are some “good news” sites on the internet. However, I don’t know of any on the television. I will research that topic in the future.

I hope this is only because this genre of news is in its infancy and that it is not simply that good news will not “sell”. God forbid that the truth of the matter is only that: “If it bleeds, it leads!”

I will try to intersperse more good news amongst my more critical posts.

In my defense of my critical blogs, however, if we are not aware-of and moved to political action by the  about our various self-destructive cultural evolutions over the past 60 years, the future will hold very little good news for anyone.

Please enjoy the following:

I hope these articles will inspire more good behavior and good news.

I will not be blogging for the next several days, so please visit my blog anyway and use my search engine in the upper left of my page to search for topics that might interest you. I have well over 1000 blogs–so please join me and comment as you like.

Also, if you have any good news that I could post please send it to me.

CNN Anti-Israel Propaganda Proven! Wake-Up America!

July 25, 2014


CNN Anti-Israel Propaganda Proven! Wake-Up America!

You will now see proof.

But, why the rest of the liberal main-street media is also propagandizing against our only long-time ally in the Middle East?

Virtually all liberal and progressive media sectors are in lock-step with the progressive Obama Administration’s obvious decision not to support the Israeli Government in the face of historically unremitting attacks by Islamic Terrorists.

Don’t ya get it America?!


And there is much more,  of course.

 Is main-stream America as empty-headed as it now appears? We are allowing our Governments to legalize dope, cut our military, open our borders to terrorists, fail to deport criminal aliens, spy on us all, have the IRS persecute conservative organizations,  Federalize and propagandize our public schools, and in all ways possible destroy America…and there is hardly a whimper from the electorate.

We are loosing the political and cultural war and we are loosing badly. Our Founding Father’s are rolling in their graves.

We had better roar with our voices, pens, computers and especially at our ballet boxes!

Krauthammer Provides Moral Clarity In Gaza

Krauthammer Provides Moral Clarity In Gaza

If you have doubts about the morality of Israel’s military actions in Gaza, I hope you will read the following article.  It is the most illuminating explanation on this difficult conflict that I have seen.

As an American citizen, we have a responsibility to know why our only historical reliable allie in the Middle East has chosen war over negotiation.

I ask you to please take the time to read and evaluate the following article.  What would you want your government to do if you were in their shoes?

Mark Levin: America’s Betrayal of Israel

America is failing in more ways than I can count. One of the major failings is the fact that we are not supporting the only moral and sane true friend that we have in the Middle East.

Please watch the following video. Mark Levin is stunning in his analysis of our failings.

Liberals Are Like Bratty Kids

Liberals Are Like Bratty Kids

The following is a very interesting article by John Hawkins, that appeared on

Read it and you will see radical liberals in 15 ways that you never have before.

I endorse Mr. Hawkins’ perspective, but would add one important aspect to his views. I hope you will read his insightful article and then, see my psychological twist on his thesis.


Mr. Hawkins makes some interesting observations about the behavior patterns of progressives/liberals/socialists/communists. But as a psychologist, I would like to take his thinking one step further.

Children do show many of the characteristics that  Hawkins ascribes to liberals. But there are some very important differences between children, and their behaviors, and those of radical liberals. The voters of America need to know these differences.

First of all, with the help of principled and loving parents, reasonable limits and humane discipline, children normally develop pro-social moral and ethical values and behavior patterns.  Judeo/Christian, or other similar religious teachings, can strongly reinforce these cognitive and behavioral developments in children and the citizens they become.

It is an important side-note that our Founding Father’s judged that religion was an essential part of citizen development and the preservation of a healthy American Republic. Reading their original writings will clarify this fact to anyone; no matter their political, philosophical, or religious perspective.

All of this underscores a simple truth that must be added to Mr. Hawkins’ insightful article: Under the right developmental conditions, most children are helped to grow-out of the personality characteristics of  liberals and conservatives with damaging personality flaws.

Tragically, the normally transient 15 features of childhood, noted by Hawkins, can become fixed and nearly unalterable in many adults. When this happens, these psychological flaws are often diagnosed as Personality Disorders. I do not intend to suggest that all “liberals” display personality disorders. However, the documented records of misconduct in office and private life strongly support that this is more often a trait among liberals than it is among conservatives.

However, I will assert that a great number of revolutionary progressive/liberals, such as those inspired by the thoroughly pathological Obama administration, do.

See for your self!

Antisocial Personality Disorder:

Narcissistic Personality Disorder:

Now, here is another troubling perception. When the two pathological personality configurations described above come into contact with individuals suffering from Dependent Personality Disorder, or perhaps only features, the results are normally the exploitation of and damage to the dependent individuals, or populations of dependent individuals, by the narcissists and the antisocial personality disordered.

As a psychotherapist I see this dynamic among individuals on a all-to-regular basis.

Dependent Personality Disorder:

Although the  diagnosis of dependent personality disorder, as well as the other two personality disorders occurs in a small percent of the population. These traits and features in our population appear to me to be on a dangerous  increase in America. See the following references.

I have not yet found data on increasing rates of dependent personality disorder, however the increase in our percent of population that have embraced dependency upon the government’s entitlement/welfare programs have increased dramatically in recent history.

The welfare contingencies of positive reinforcement for people doing little, or nothing, will unquestionably shape dependent behavior patterns in recipients. I will judge that such population dependent behavior patterns are are moving along a continuum toward the full criteria for of Dependent Personality Disorder. These are therefore very bad citizen behaviors to reinforce in our increasingly socialistic America.

You may read the following article, or skip to item #4,  in order to understand some of the damages (though not all) of  socialistic contingencies of positive reinforcement a population.

  • Can you see the results of these increasing population personality features  in an increasingly socialistic America?
  • Do you understand that the process by which this increase is a self-feeding one?
  • Do you understand that as the traditional methods by which children have been acculturated in America break-down our citizens become increasingly easy prey for unprincipled and unscrupulous power-hungry narcissists and antisocials?
  • Isn’t it clear to you that narcissist and antisocial progressive/liberal politicians (in any party) and their minions are advantaged by an increasingly dependent population?
  • Can you see this population transformation being fueled and shaped by so-called progressive politicians and citizens in key sectors of society (Political, Law, Education, Media, Religion, etc.) ?

If not, you had better look again. You had better look much closer.

“I Know, Too, That Islam Has Always Been A Part of America’s History.”: Obama

July 19, 2014

“I Know, Too, That Islam Has Always Been A Part of America’s History.”
President Obama

I do not know who wrote the following, about Islam’s contribution to America.

This is a piece of literature that “floats” around cyberspace. Most of such things I will not place in my blog.  However, a friend sent it to me and I am certain that it is virtually all true. Without question, its main message is true.

I am therefore hopeful that you will take the time to read it and I dearly hope that you will send this to all of your friends.

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?
Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?
Have you seen a Muslim band march in a parade?
Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?
Have you shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?
Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

The answer is no, you have not. Just ask yourself, why?

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s history.”


Dear Mr. Obama:

Were there Muslims in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

Can you show me one Muslim signature on the: United States Constitution?
Declaration of Independence ?
The Bill of Rights?
Didn’t think so.

Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England?

Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America ? No, they did not.
In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half-brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even as Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this
Not present.

There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr., or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era?
Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so, that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

Where were Muslims during World War II?
They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.

Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims
on Sept. 11th, 2001?

If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center , the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East . No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news network’s that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Americans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich heritage”
Muslims have here in America …

Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslims.

And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Also, don’t forget the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15.2013 was done by 2 Muslim Brothers.

That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.

More Guns For Law-Abiding Citizens=Fewer Murders: Old News

July 15, 2014

More Guns For Law-Abiding Citizens=Fewer Murders: Old News

Our Founding Father’s designed the 2nd Amendment to allow the voting citizenry to protect itself from the emergence of a tyrannical government. Voting citizens have the right to vote tyranny out of their lives. Failing that, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other early patriots would have urged the citizens of America to rise-up, take-up their arms if necessary, and replace the government in order to again achieve their liberty from governmental subjugation.

This is the hard truth and God forbid it would ever have to come to that.

I believe our Founding Fathers also understood that when good citizens are armed it is a natural guard against the predatory behavior of violent criminals among the peaceful and the frail.

Regardless, on this last point, the truth has been demonstrated over and over again in real-time.

This reality will set you free from fear and irrational vulnerability, but first it will make liberals, progressives and socialist-communists miserable.

Once again (for the umpteenth time) the more guns for law-abiding citizens, the fewer murders.
