A Special Memorial Day Tribute: 2017

Tom and Debbie Zellers sent this to me and it is, indeed, a very special tribute to all of America’s fallen military personnel. 

This is, as only President Ronald Reagan could do it!

I hope you will watch this short video. I will also ask that you please show it to your children, teens and young adults.

America: Prepare for War!

May 23, 2017

The following is a timely re-blog.

It is appropriate that we reflect upon the fragility (and importance) of America’s Geopolitical position in the new light of President Trump’s war on Islamic terrorism, nuclear developments in North Korea and Iran, and ongoing terrorists attacks on Great Britain and around the world.

It is only a matter of time until America will be hit again, again and again.

A Dangerous World: America, Prepare for War!

It is all so very complex. 

  • North Korea is threatening to shoot nuclear war-headed missiles at America and they will be able to do so very soon, if not now! They also are threatening our friends, the South Koreans.
  • Russia is threatening aggression against us and they are doing everything to defeat us on the world geopolitical stage, as is China.
  • China is building man-made islands in international areas of the South China Sea. Both China and Russia have conducted military exercises in that region. These are clear threats to that area of the world and to important American interests there.
  • Iran is threatening to destroy both Israel and America.
  • Radical Islamic forces are at war with us, as well as every other “Infidel” society in the world.
  • Our military is stretched and over-burdened because it is now spread over a half-dozen hot-spots involving actual combat, with an important strategic presence in many other countries around the world.
  • Our military has been allowed to deteriorate and weaken to pre-WWII levels.
  • Our economy is teetering on the brink of collapse.
  • Our society is in a frightening state of social and moral decline.
  • Too many of our youthful population, who would fight in what appears to be an already deepening WWIII, are soft and sissified by countless family, social, political and technological changes.

Finally, our many enemies have been emboldened by eight years of President Obama’s purposefully self-destructive and deceitfully facilitating policies favoring these enemies.

Anyone who accurately perceives the dangerous ways of this world, and American history, must know that the most sure road to peace is to be very prepared for war.

America, you had better say your prayers and wake-up fast!

Democracy is Failing in America!

May 13, 2017

Democracy is Failing in America!

I have studied the decline of societies since the mid-1980’s. In doing so, I have observed the various cultural evolutions in America and have read extensively in the literature of cultural evolution and cultural decline. My research has also led me to study the various components of sociocultures including American and World History, Religion, forms of Government, Economics, and more.

This intellectual experience has been greatly rewarding and has informed my various writings, including over 1500 blogs that I have published on this website.

After all of this, I have now grown used to people characterizing me as an extremest and my views as a form of radical conservatism. In response, I politely joke that I am “a little to the right of Attila the Hun”! I then often  follow this remark with the truth: “I am an American Constitutional Conservative.” This remark normally leads to blank expressions of my critics, ending that portion of our conversation.

I have come to recognize the title of this blog and my views of America’s obvious decline as a perfectly predictable symptoms of America’s transition into an aging or “Late Democracy”.

One of the most prescient books I have ever read is: Democracy: And Why It Will Fail In America, by John L. Bowman.

Bowman integrates the observations and predictions of philosophers and historians from the Early Greeks, to our Founding Fathers, and on to similar great thinkers of our more modern times….all integrated into a factual whole.

If you wonder why I use the words  “factual whole”: This is because the sum total of this massive intellectual achievement not only predicts the evolution to failure of democracies through history; It perfectly predicts America’s present state of decline.

At 75 years of age, I have witnessed the seemingly inexorable evolution of American Culture from its approximate azimuth in the late 1940’s to its present steep decline; and I have also studied America’s history that predates my own.

If you would like to know what is now happening to you and America, and why, I strongly recommend you read this book.

Although Bowman favors Democracy, he is forced to conclude the following:

“But freedom entails responsibility, self-restraint, and above all, rationality, which apparently are characteristics beyond the ability of most of humanity. In many ways, humans cannot handle the freedom democracy brings. They cannot because humans are driven by passion—their emotions do the thinking. Emotions are good, as we would not be human without them, but when they govern us all in the form of a political system, many things go wrong. Try as we may to cut the leash, we cannot escape our human natures.”

Bowman documents that democracy reliably devolves into socialism. He argues that this is the fatal outcome for all that ride the democratic cultural train from liberty and individualism, to equality for all, and finally to the fatal outcome of tyrannical socialism.

Bowman and others assert that Democracy contains the fatal elements of its own destruction and they are the poisonous seeds of socialism.

I hope you will read this book; If America’s voters can just understand what is happening to them and act accordingly, there is a very slim chance that it’s not too late.

Trump Protects Religion from Liberal/Secular Attacks!

May 8, 2017

Trump Protects Religion from Liberal/Secular Attacks!

One of the factors often associated with the decline and failure of the world’s cultures through history has first been the decline and loss of their founding, and sustaining, religions.

This has been a major feature of the continuing decline of America, one of the last and failing bastions of Western civilization

Trumps protection of all religious rights, including Christians, to speak-out about political practices is a good thing for America.

My endorsement of this religious liberty does not extend to any religion that advocates violence, terrorism, or the supplanting of the U.S. Constitution their own religious laws, I.e., Sharia Law, etc.

See the following for Trump’s most recent courageous defense of America’s Founding values.

Sodom and Gamorha America: Sorry for the Dirty Pictures

April 30, 2017

Playboy’s Hugh Hefner on steroids.

Ok, I am not really sorry for the “dirty pictures” in today’s blog.

They  are, after all, relatively tame and tragically common-fare in all the world and for all people (children, teens and adults) capable of connecting to the internet.

As a college professor, I called my research area Behavioral Contagion. That is, the spread of important behavior patterns within cultures via certain biological, psychological and social forms of contact among individuals or groups of individuals. The amazing phenomenon of globalization, transportation advances and the expansion of various media into virtually every single persons life in advanced cultures has exponentially catalyzed the rate of behavioral contagion processes around the world.

One of my professional publications was on the topic of Behavioral Sexual Maladaption Contagion in America. In this article I predicted the dramatic rise is sexual licentiousness and its associated social problems. The sociocultural impact of increased rates of ungoverned sexual behavior is now one great class of  problems (among many) that comprise a synergism accelerating America’s cultural decline.

It is admittedly a challenging read, but I believe it will be worth your effort.

Historically, various mechanisms of behavioral contagion (for better and for worse) likely gained power incrementally and at a comparatively slow rate. Therefore, I would assume that we call “cultural evolution”, or change also, with some notable exceptions, proceeded relatively slowly.

Alvin Toffler once wrote a prophetic book entitled “Future Shock”. The title implies many of the unique psychological traumas that afflict our “post-modern world” and all of us. I recommend that you read because it will allow you a better understanding of what is happening to you and your society.

I once wrote a book entitled Rewarding Parenthood/Rewarding Childhood. This labor of love was published in 1978, by J.P. Tarcher Inc. and distributed by St. Martin’s Press.

Sadly, my book was off the market within a year. My sage and wonderfully humorous dear Uncle Clint easily diagnosed the problem with my book: “You needed to put some dirty pictures in it”!

This blog is dedicated to my beloved Uncle Clint.

America’s Fascist Universities Grow More Fascist

April 28, 2017

America’s Fascist Universities Grow More Fascist

It is axiomatic that socialists, communists, fascists, and now modern progressives/democrats, all use the same revolutionary play-book.

They foment an incremental form of revolution to suite their “half-assed”, historically failure-based, delusional, pie-in-the-sky Utopian dreams by capturing the educational system and contaging young future voters with their special brand of “psychosis”.

As I use the term “psychosis” in this context, it not meant to be the ICD-10 formal definition of a clinical psychosis. The special brand of “psychosis” that I refer to is seen in people who do not come under the control of the widely known and documented history of the horrors and murderous failures of their favorite rigidly held faith in socialistic and communistic political systems.

This contagion/conversion has normally been done at the barrels of guns. But in America, and elsewhere, it is now being done surreptitiously, right under the noses of unsuspecting parents.

Wake-Up America!

Terminate Tax funds to Universities and Colleges, all schools for that matter, that abridge the 1st Amendment by intimidating or punishing those who exercise their American Right to Free Speech!

First Dreamer Deported: Fake News!

First Dreamer Deported Without Cause: Fake News!

I was upset when I first heard of what was presented as a true deportation, without cause, of a illegal so-called dreamer. Of course President Trump’s Administration was blamed by the liberal-biased media.

The following is the truth about this Fake News.

Wake-Up America!

Why I Voted Democrat: Ha, Ha, Ha!

April 17, 2017

Why I Voted Democrat: Ha, Ha, Ha!

I don’t wish to be mean. But, the Democrats are busy slandering and conspiring to impeach President Trump 24/7.

So I thought I would provide my readers with some great humor I found that is at the expense of the Democrats… but not at the expense of the truth! 

Yep, the laugh is on the “libs”.
