“How the Left Ruins Everything”

April 4, 2020

“How the Left Ruins Everything”

This title may sound like a gross exaggeration.

However, if you have lived for 50 years beyond your 20th birthday, you might not be surprised by the following dose of reality.

One of the important principles of psychology is named “habituation”. The fact is that our senses (I.e., we!) become “habituated-to” (I.e., get used too) stimuli, stimulation, or aspects of environments that we repeatedly experience, or are exposed to over a long period of time.

But, no matter your age, it is essential that you evaluate the following.

So it is with our physical, social, and political environments. It is a fact that, if these environmental changes occur slowly, or in smaller increments over time, “we get used to them”, that is to say they seem normal, unremarkable, or tolerable to us.

If such changes occur rapidly, all at once, or with great magnitude, we may experience them as very unpleasant and seek to escape them. In sociocultures, these efforts can take the form of mass migrations to other environs more to our liking (like that of America’s founding populations). More to the point, the escape response of populations can also take the form or rebellion, or actual revolution (Like that of America’s Founding Father’s).

Over the past 50 years, and actually longer, leftist social and political changes have been incrementally accruing in America. A significant percent of America’s population, habituated to these changes, is now moving towards a voting majority. Could the title of this publication,“How the Left Ruins Everything”, and following video be a foreboding harbinger of our future?

I fear that America is approaching a point of no peaceful return. I pray that I am wrong.

It is clear to me that the following video presents the truth about the gathering forces of our great undoing.

America had better vote conservative!

Thanks to the patriots as PragerU.

See what you think.

Epi/Pan-Demics Change History

April 1, 2020

Epi/Pan-Demics Change History

There should be no doubt that epidemics and pandemics have changed history since the beginnings of life on earth.

I am convinced that there is no other conclusion to be reached about this matter. 

I suggest that you consider the following and see what you think. 

Epidemics have no doubt contributed to the decline of some of the greatest civilizations in all of human history. 

We had better pray that America is not about to become a modern example of just such an undoing.

Communism = Starvation = Bizarre Foods

March 28, 2020

Communism = Starvation = Bizarre Foods

This should be a no-brainer!

Of course, there are other causes, but historically, Socialism and Communism have yielded poverty, starvation, death and disease.

Poverty and starvation, over many generations can yield very bizarre appetites and eating habits the among surviving populations.

So, why would anyone expect that bizarre “foods” would not populate their market places?!

They do. See for yourself!

10 bizarre foods of China.

Also, they really do eat bats in China!

See why eating bats is a very dangerous thing for humans to do.

America’s Picture Today!

Why Vote For Trump?!

Do not be blinded by Trump’s crass words and unpleasant mannerisms.

Focus upon his unprecedented problem solving actions and their successful outcomes!

At this moment in American history, The following picture is absolutely true, and it IS worth a thousand words!

The only thing standing between our American Constitutional Republic and its promised”TRANSFORMATION” to socialism is Donald Trump and those who support his efforts.

Vote Conservative values and Trump!

America’s Picture today.

Thanks to Lynn and Lee Hornack for sending me this artistic depiction of our American reality!

Coronavirus: The Beginning of the End?!

March 20, 2020

Coronavirous: The Beginning of the End?!

A friend of mine recently wrote me. He was ending his vacation in a nice warm place a couple of weeks early. He wanted to return home to isolate himself and his wife from the Coronavirus.

He likes to tease me. So he asked: “Is this the beginning of the end?!”

I like to tease him back. So I wrote: “No, that happened with the Big Bang!”

At first, I thought is was just a fun answer, that I had never thought too much about.

However, I began to think my “clever” repartee just might, in fact, be true!

So, I decided to research the idea that the Big Bang was the first thing to happen in what we now call the Universe.

I hope you enjoy the following two articles about the Big Bang. From now-on, I will call this cosmological theory the Big Gordian’s Knot Theory. There is far less certainty about the birth of our universe than I had though!

https://curiosity.com/topics/the-big-bang-wasnt-actually-the-beginning-of-the-universe-curiosity/

https://www.livescience.com/65254-what-happened-before-big-big.html

I admit to getting somewhat lost in the details of these two articles, though I do get the big picture.

From all that I can tell, the experts have informed me that we know a heck of a lot less about the so-called Big Bang, than I thought we did. . It may not be the first thing to have happened in the evolution of our universe.

I am working to be a better psychologist than I am a cosmologist….Oops!

America’s Youth: What’s Wrong?!

March 14, 2020

America’s Youth: What’s Wrong?!

Well, a lot is wrong. America’s many problems are too numerous and complex to discuss in one blog. However, I have discussed a great many problems in previous blogs and I strongly endorse the content of this wonderfully honest video. 

Prager University has generated the following video that identifies what they (and I) consider to be some of the most vital socio-cultural deficits leading to America’s great decline.

As a professor of psychology and practicing psychologist, during the past 50 years, I have painfully witnessed the American decline identified in this video. I can assure you that it is real, given the many employees, teachers, police/firefighters, parents, children and families that I have treated.

I hope you will view this important video and understand that President Trump, putting politics second to America’s general welfare,  has done more to address these deficits than any modern President. He must have four more years to continue his herculean effort.

Then, in future elections, America must elect other leaders that will follow his lead to continue this absolutely essential efforts. 

This is your reality America: Work to change it or continue to suffer the hellish consequences.
