Islam Hates Democracy!

November 20, 2017

Islam Hates Democracy!

Yes, I know there are “good Muslims”; this is an obligatory statement of the obvious.

Also, I cannot think of any nation-states that are pure democracies: and just so you know that I know…America is a Republic.

Never-the-Less the Koran preaches that the freedoms afforded in any nation-state that is not a Sharia complaint Theocracy, are an abomination and an insult to Mohamed and Allah.

Radical members of Islam also hate moderate Muslims and seeks to kill them whenever they can. Radical Islam also targets all other religions of the world for destruction.

A large number of Muslims fervently believe that Allah demands that all individuals and infidel nations are the enemy and must be attacked and converted to Islam in the name of Allah!

America must fact two facts if we are to survive these never-ending Crusades by Radical Islam.

  1. It is near near-impossible to tell which Muslim immigrants hold the beliefs outlined above. Mohamed taught that to lie to advance Islam is not a sin.
  2. It is impossible to tell which of those Muslim immigrants who may nicely integrate into a host society will bring (or birth) children who are prone to be radicalized into the world of Islamic terrorism.

It is for these reasons that I must advocate for an indefinite moratorium on all Islamic immigration.

The following data supports my position.

Remember, there is no such thing as Islamophobia. Fear of Islam is not an irrational fear!

I encourage you to do your own research on this issue.

Islamic Immigration: Cultural “Russian Roulette”!

November 19, 2017

Islamic Immigration: Cultural “Russian Roulette”!

Wake-Up Damn-Fool Liberal Americans!

There is no such thing as an Islamophobic. Do not be intimidated by this label.

For any fear to be called a phobia, first and foremost it is required that the fear be baseless. A phobic fear must be an irrational fear of some person, class of persons, other animals, objects or situations that are generally harmless. 

The argument could be made that an many Islamic persons are harmless. But there is accruing strong evidence that the influx of Islamic populations into non-Islamic cultures is way too frequently dangerous and harmful to the receiving population and their culture.

Strong evidence is also accruing that the children of Islamic Immigrants are at a heightened risk of being radicalized into murderous Islamic Terrorist operatives. This means that increased “vetting efforts” will too often fail to protect the host citizens from the murderous Islamic terrorist attacks now so much in the news in America and from all around the world

There is also strong evidence that a large percent of Islamic immigrants do not integrate into their new host cultures. They instead tend to cluster into densely populated areas (often named ghettos) that live by Islamic Sharia Law and are hostile to citizens and officials of the host society. In some countries, it is now reported that police and firefighters are afraid to enter these areas and that illegal activities become rampant in these enclaves.

As shown below, there are many more problems for societies that have accepted Islamic refugees and Immigrants.

Beware of radical-liberal-progressive “Political Correctness” and other forms of propagandistic thought-control now so common in America! 

This blog is the first of a series in an attempt to provide reliable information about the damage done to other countries who have tragically opened their borders to Islam.

Wake-Up America, don’t let the following happen to you and your loved ones!

Take time to face reality. Then please vote accordingly.

Mental Illness, Civil Commitments and Gun Laws

November 11, 2017

The following is a re-blog of something that I wrote and posted on 1/16/11. 

Nothing significant has changed since this original posting that I can sense. Furthermore, the tragic carnage due to shootings of innocent people by mentally disturbed citizens continues appears to be escalating. 

I blame radical-liberal progressives and the this nation’s total lack of courage to reverse the irresponsibly permissive treatment of America’s severely mentally ill and potentially dangerous citizens.

Mental Illness, Civil Commitments and Gun Laws

Many years ago, in Michigan, a social worker went to visit a man who he had reportedly known for a long time. The social worker had a very good relationship with this man.

So why, on the day of this visit, did this man step out the front door and kill the social worker on his porch with a point-blank shotgun blast to the chest? Think of all the reasons that you can identify. What could possibly explain this horrific and totally unpredicted event?

It should not come as a surprise that the killer was diagnosed with Paranoid Schizophrenia.

It is true that Schizophrenia, of any kind, infrequently leads to violence. It is also true that when such violence occurs, it is over- represented in the news.

However, it is essential that anyone who is thought to be mentally ill and behaving in menacing ways be provisionally committed to a secure mental health facility for evaluation. Furthermore, the standards of proof leading to such an initial civil commitment must be lowered.  This has to be done for the protection of both the patient and the public at large.

As a practicing psychologist, I am legally responsible to report any indications of child abuse to the regional Department of Family and Children. I can assure you that when I must do so, this organization makes an evaluation of my report, an investigation normally ensues, and if it is deemed necessary children are placed in protective custody. I am saddened that this system sometimes fails, but it more frequently does not.

The same needs to be done in the case of apparently dangerous individuals suffering from mental disorders. Currently,  the burden of proof for temporary hospitalization and evaluation is so great as to be unworkable. If a law was enforced,  mandating such reports from physicians and mental health professionals to an appropriate agency for investigation and possible action,  many tragedies-in-the-making could be prevented. 

Please  take time to review the following article about mental illness and violence. It is a well-balanced report about serious and emotion-laden problem.

http://www.schizophrenia.com/poverty.htm

On a related matter, I am in full support of the 2nd amendment (Law abiding citizens may purchase and possess firearms). However, those suffering from severe mental disorders must be restricted from the ability to purchase and possess firearms.

A law mandating that health care providers in medicine and psychology, as well as various mental care facilities forward reports of seriously mentally ill patients to an appropriate federal agency that will prohibit their legal purchase and possession of firearms is essential. This can work because currently any individual seeking to legally purchase a fire arm must first be computer-checked by a federal agency. The main weakness in this system is apparently in the report mechanism to that agency.

Please review the Federal Laws on firearms purchases and possession.

http://www.nraila.org/gunlaws/federal/read.aspx?id=60

I urge you to speak-out and lobby your representatives for the passage of such legislation and stiff consequences for those who do not comply.

A Law is useless unless it is enforced with consequences for those who break it.

Wake-up America!

“Give Thanks” to The Real Deplorable!

November 9, 2017

“Give Thanks” to The Real Deplorable!

The following written document was sent to me by a fellow patriot. Please read it carefully.

I believe that this an accurate survey of much of the great damage that Barack Obama has done to America during his Presidency.

I just heard Rush Limbaugh make the argument that the reason Democrat Donna Brazile is trashing the Clinton’s in her new book and news media appearances is she knows that with them running the DNC, they will fail in again in 2020.

Rush then stated that he judged it was most likely that the DNC will present Michelle Obama as its nominee for President in 2012.

If the prospect of four-to-eight more years of Obama politics in America does not terrify you, few things will.

This article is purportedly written by “Joe the Plummer”. I do not know that it is true, or is not. But, why would it matter who wrote a blog if it was the truth!

I will apologize for the photo of Trump and Obama and the childish implications of the attempted “humor” (distasteful as it appears to be). I was unable to censor the picture. It has nothing to do with the valuable historical information provided.

See what you think!

Bergdahl, America and Vicarious Learning

November 6, 2017

Bergdahl, America and Vicarious Learning

I have just finished reading Killing England, by Bill O’Reilly. This is a powerful and gripping history of America’s great Revolutionary War.

The brutality and suffering inflicted by the Patriots and the British upon one another is simply unimaginable.  The descriptions this epic conflict were frequently very graphic.

War in any age is hell-on-earth.

All Americans should read this book. It intimately details the miraculous birth of our nation.

As beloved as George Washington was to his fighting forces and to the patriot population of his time, he was ferocious in his persecution the war for U.S. independence from Great Britain. To this end, he had standing orders that those who deserted on the battlefield should be shot on the spot. Also, he normally hung traitors and spies.

In one case a British officer became a spy and was captured. Washington ordered that he be hanged. The British officer begged to die by firing squad because it was a more humane and honorable death befitting a loyal British Officer. Washington refused his pleas and the spy died a ghastly slow death kicking and writhing at the end of a rope.

Now we come to American Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl who deserted his post in 2009 while serving in Afghanistan. Search parties were immediately sent to look for him.

Interviews of officers and enlisted men who were involved in this extended search reveal that one soldier was shot in the head, another shot in the leg, and another suffered shrapnel wounds to his hand; all by the enemy fire during this intensive search for Bergdahl.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/lives-altered-forever-by-wounds-on-bergdahl-searches/2017/10/22/853473f8-b743-11e7-9b93-b97043e57a22_story.html?utm_term=.0dbb9b42b39f

Here are the heart-rending photographs of the head injured soldier, Sgt. Mark Allen, before and after terrible injury.  His amazing wife and beautiful children brighten these sad pictures. God Bless them all.

Image result for photos of head shot soldier in search for bergdahlImage result for photos of head shot soldier in search for bergdahl

Tragically Mark Allen is now paralyzed, blind and cannot speak.The man shot in the leg nearly lost his life due to blood loss. He also was a dog handler and his dog was shot and killed. The man wounded in his hand has lost much of its function.

All of this happened because bergdahl deserted his post and it was thought that he had simply been captured by the enemy.

So, now comes the verdict and the consequences for Bergdahl’s desertion and possible collusion with the enemy.

Bergdahl was given a dishonorable discharge, was reduced in rank and was given no prison time!

Now bergdahl has the gall to appeal his dishonorable discharge!

In psychology there is the principle of “vicarious learning”.  There is a strong research base that confirms what most perceptive individuals learn on their own. Human beings learn by observing what other people do and seeing what the consequences for that behavior were.

If the consequences are rewarding, the probability that the observer will imitate that behavior is increased.

If there is no particular change following the observed behavior, it is not so likely that the behavior will be imitated by the observer.

If the consequences are punishing (painful, loss of rewards, or death …which likely includes the previous two consequences), the likelihood that the behavior will be imitated is significantly reduced.

These effects are greatly magnified by a technologically sophisticated media that symbolically presents (via words, numbers or other images) certain behaviors for countless millions of observers to perceive and to assess the consequences that the acting individual or individuals, enjoyed or suffered, as a consequence.

It has commonly been said that governments and organizations cannot legislate morality. This old saying must be revised in light of  modern psychological science; it is not true.

Governments and organizations set rules that provide punishments and rewards for certain behaviors. Modern societies promulgate these behavior-consequence rules to their citizens. Observing citizens and members of organizations observe these behaviors and the consequences that those who conform enjoy and those who do not, suffer.

These conditions are sufficient for vicarious learning and the increased or decreased probability of the observers imitating those particular behaviors. When the behaviors involve moral rules, that are properly and consistently consequated with rewards or punishments, the population rate of moral behavior will increase and the rate of immoral behavior will decrease.

George Washington shot or hung deserters and traitors as a “lesson to others”. He implicitly understood the principles of vicarious learning.

Too many of our leaders have either lost this understanding, or more likely, they are corrupted and have ignored it for their own short-term benefits.

This means they are traitors.  Where is a Washington when we need one?

Wake-Up America! “Drain the Swamp”!

Get the consequences for good and bad behavior right, or continue America’s tragic decline.

V. Thomas Mawhinney, Ph.D., 11/6/17

P.S., I would have liked to see Bergdahl, get 15-20 years of prison time for his desertion in a war zone and the great harm he caused to his would-be “rescuers”. His dishonorable discharge must stand.

The Black Dilemma?

November 2, 2017

 

THE BLACK DILEMMA

A dear friend sent this article to me for my evaluation.

My research on the internet found the following:

_________________________________________

“While many online postings of the above-displayed article in June 2015 claimed that it had been recently published in Baltimore Sun, this article has actually been circulating on the Internet since at least September 2014, when it was published under the title “Ten Percent Is Not Enough” in the American Renaissance blog.”

“The American Renaissance posting was originally attributed to Anthony Bryan; but his name was stripped from versions shared via Internet forums, craigslist postings, and comments sections of several race-related articles. Several different authorial names have been attached to the piece, including “John S. Mosby” (a Confederate cavalry officer) and “Edmund Hughes,” but the article didn’t truly go viral until after the Baltimore Sun attribution was tacked on.”

__________________________________________

Further follow-up research found that the Baltimore Sun published a disclaimer indicating that it never published the article to follow. This can be confirmed by typing “Baltimore Sun, The Black Dilemma”.

Never-the-less, the following article partially conflates with the various socio-cultural realities that I have personally witnessed and what I have learned in my studies of America’s attempts to improve race relations and economic advancements for black citizens. 

Indeed, the back population has made very significant progress in past years. But, but these gains have recently stalled and I fear the progress is not yet sufficient avoid a future of great racial strife in america.

Please read the following article in black print.  I will add my personal thoughts in red print.

___________________________________________

The Black Dilemma

For almost 150 years the United States has been conducting an interesting experiment.  The subjects of the experiment:  black people and working-class whites. The hypothesis to be tested: Can a people taken from the jungles of Africa and forced into slavery be fully integrated as citizens in a majority white population?  The whites were descendants of Europeans who had created a majestic civilization.  The former slaves had been tribal peoples with no written language and virtually no intellectual achievements.  Acting on a policy that was not fair to either group, the government released newly freed black people into a white society that saw them as inferiors.  America has struggled with racial discord ever since.

I do not think it was unfair to release blacks into into whites, nor do I think freedom was unfair to blacks. Obviously, the conscription of blacks into slavery was not only unfair, it was a immoral abomination. However, slavery was a world-wide practice in those times and blacks were complicit in capturing and selling other blacks into slavery. The systemic blatant discrimination and hostility to blacks before and following the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 by whites was absolutely unfair.

The surprise for many is that the worst treatment, and greatest proportion of it, was institutionalized by the democrats.

I know it sounds outlandish, but it is the absolute truth. Please read the following short article right now, as my remarks to follow are predicated upon this easily available knowledge for those who will do their research.

https://townhall.com/columnists/victoriastroup/2016/11/05/how-fdrs-racism-gave-democrats-the-black-vote-n2241694

http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/did-lbj-say-ill-have-those-nggers-voting-democratic-200-years

http://www.nationalreview.com/article/445303/democrats-black-history-month-amnesia-democratic-party-oppresses-blacks

For a more historical and in-depth and expose’ of democratic abuse of America’s black population, it is essential to read Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “The Big Lie”.

Decade after decade the problems persisted but the experimenters never gave up.  They insisted that if they could find the right formula the experiment would work, and concocted program after program to get the result they wanted.  They created the Freedmans Bureau, passed civil rights laws, tried to build the Great Society, declared War on Poverty, ordered race preferences, built housing projects, and tried midnight basketball.  Their new laws intruded into peoples lives in ways that would have been otherwise unthinkable.  They called in National Guard troops to enforce school integration.  They outlawed freedom of association.  Over the protests of parents, they put white children on buses and sent them to black schools and vice-versa.  They tried with money, special programs, relaxed standards, and endless hand wringing to close the achievement gap. 

All of this is true. To the greatest extent it was the a growing and increasingly democratic government that imposed draconian and unconstitutional fascist social engineering programs under the guise of liberating the black population

The result was a great social disruption, clashing subcultures, massive appropriations for programs and entitlements run by an increasingly bloated leftist and incompetent government. 

The greatest purposeful achievement was to destroy the black family structure (as it has done to a great many white families). It further “re-enslaved” great numbers of voting, chronically dependent and economically disenfranchised blacks and poor whites to the increasingly radical liberal/progressive/fascist democratic party.

To keep white backlash in check they began punishing public and even private statements on race.  They hung up Orwellian public banners that commanded whites to Celebrate Diversity! and Say No to Racism.  Nothing was off limits if it might salvage the experiment.

This is true, but it was only part of the goals of the long-term game plan of the socialist/Marxist left in America. These goals were: Capture the poor minority’s vote, capture the news and entertainment media, capture education, capture the judicial system, weaken the family, weaken religion, grow the size of the government, increase taxes, gain control of the government and the budget, and increase the practice of socialism in America.

Implementing strong controls over what people think and are allowed to say and stamping-out religion and individualism in favor of communalism is the leftist’s goal, now largely accomplished.  The tool for cultural change has been fascism, as Mussolini first configured it leading-up to WWII. The American radical left was enamored of this form of government control and they still are: I.e.,  Private ownership of business largely controlled by the government and the enforced political philosophy; “The government and the people are one!” 

Some thought that what W.E.B. DuBois called the Talented Tenth would lead the way for black people.  A group of elite, educated blacks would knock down doors of opportunity and show the world what blacks were capable of. There is a Talented Tenth.  They are the black Americans who have become entrepreneurs, lawyers, doctors and scientists  But ten percent is not enough.  For the experiment to work, the ten percent has to be followed by a critical mass of people who can hold middle-class jobs and promote social stability..  That is what is missing.

Well a large mass of black people has followed. They can be seen working in America’s universities, high schools and grade schools. They are working in law enforcement, social welfare efforts, medicine/health care, business, the judicial system, government, politics, the military, and in other jobs of all sorts.

This is plain to see! There have been great gains, but there have also been some set-backs, as the following data will show.

https://www.brookings.edu/articles/black-progress-how-far-weve-come-and-how-far-we-have-to-go/

Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them.  

OK, but this problem has not been a result of black “inability”. As proven in my first citations at the start of this blog, it is the result of radical/liberal democratic social engineering leading to fatherless families, poverty and governmental dependency among poor blacks and whites. American blacks have been disproportionately disadvantaged because they were disproportionately disadvantages from the start.

Detroit is bankrupt, the south side of Chicago is a war zone, and the vast majority of black cities all over America are beset by degeneracy and violence.  And blacks never take responsibility for their failures.  Instead, they lash out in anger and resentment.

The author (whoever that might be) should have said “too many blacks never take responsibility”. A statement that could also be made about “too many whites”. 

 Across the generations and across the country, as we have seen in Detroit, Watts, Newark, Los Angeles, Cincinnati, and now Ferguson, rioting and looting are just one racial incident away.

It is not blacks that have failed, but rather the system in these specific cities and states that have been, for generations, under the governmental control of radical liberal/ progressive politicians who have tried to implement socialistic mini-societies that predictably have failed,  just as thoroughgoing socialism eventually fails every where else in the world.

The white elite would tell us that this doesn’t mean the experiment has failed. We just have to try harder.  We need more money, more time, more understanding, more programs, and more opportunities.  But nothing changes no matter how much money is spent, no matter how many laws are passed, no matter how many black geniuses are portrayed on TV, and no matter who is president. 

But, all of this sure has captured the poor black and poor white vote, as well as the leftist-leaning population in America! The result has been more political power for the radical left.

It will never be a matter of more programs or more money. It is a matter of the motivational and administrative structure of how the money, opportunity and rewards are provided within programs. It is a matter of prompting marketable skill acquisition, work/financial opportunities and rewarding individuals who progress in achieving these goals.

Psychology’s great Law of Effect states “behavior is controlled by its consequences”. Change the consequences for a population’s actions and the populations behavior patterns will change!

Some argue its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around.

It would only take one good course in introductory sociology, anthropology, and psychology for most to realize that what we call culture is influenced by many things. Some of these things are: The physical environment, biological/health issues, war/peace, feast/famine, religion/lack of it, how citizens make their livings, science and technology, and of course the behavior of the individuals within the population.

Do not forget that cultures are also comprised of subcultures. Yes behavior creates culture, as the author so strongly states. But please never forget that there is an undeniable synergism among all components of a culture.  All components of culture interact with other components in complex feedback cycles capable of both accelerating and decelerating population behavior patterns. Cultural causes and effects are best  conceived as a great multi-layered lattis of multi-directional causal interactions both within and between these layers.

Make no mistake, culture shapes the perceptions, thoughts, beliefs, expectations and behaviors of those who live within it

Consider the infants born into the third generation families of those who have learned to live off governmental hand-outs and entitlements. That is, families that have learned it is most convenient (government rewards are most predicable and immediate)  and least effortful ( The “law” of least effort) to live the marginal life-style of a welfare recipient within the relatively deprived and dangerous environs of poverty.

These infants also tend to be born into environments that provide the quickest and easiest routs to increased status and prosperity through intimidation, violence and crime; environs in which education is viewed as useless.

From a statistical perspective, what would any psychologically knowledgeable individual predict for infants born into such conditions, other than the outcomes commented upon by the unknown author if this article sent to me?!

Would you really like to make the argument that culture does not shape such infants behavior?

Others blame white privilege.

But since 1965, when the elites opened Americas doors to the Third World, immigrants from Asia and India people who are not white, not rich, and not connected have quietly succeeded.  While the children of these people are winning spelling bees and getting top scores on the SAT, black youths are committing half the country’s violent crime, which includes viciously punching random white people on the street for the thrill of it that has nothing to do with poverty.

The subcultures brought to America by the immigrant families specified contained a successful inoculation against the American subculture of governmental dependency and behavioral degeneration. It would be wise to more closely examine what these qualities are and to strive to incorporate (I will say reincorporate) them into our own culture.

The experiment has failed.  Not because of white culture, or white privilege, or white racism.  The fundamental problem is that American black culture has evolved into an un-fixable and crime ridden mess. 

I do not think it is “un-fixable” in the long run. As a psychologist often working with middle-class black families and seeing loving, hard-working, grandparents and mothers, and sadly a fewer number of black fathers, doing their best to raise good children, I see reason for hope.

But, I also see the influences upon these growing children who are affected by the entertainment media and peers who have embraced the immorality, irresponsibility and  barbarianism of “the hood” and the Godless leftist secular humanist philosophy. Many black families, along with what is left of their families are fighting with all of their might to raise a future wonderful black American population.

They do not want to change their culture or society, and expect others to tolerate their violence and amoral behavior.  They have become socially incompatible with other races by their own design, not because of the racism of others – but by their own hatred of non blacks. 

This is true of many in all races.

Our leaders don’t seem to understand just how tired their white subjects are with this experiment.  They don’t understand that white people aren’t out to get black people; they are just exhausted with them.  They are exhausted by the social pathologies, the violence, the endless complaints, and the blind racial solidarity, the bottomless pit of grievances, the excuses, and the reflexive animosity! The elites explain everything with racism, and refuse to believe that white frustration could soon reach the boiling point.”—“You can’t legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom.  What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.  The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government doesn’t first take from somebody else.  When half of the people get the idea that they don’t have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friend, is about the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

Trump Wins Travel Ban Fight

America should rejoice!

The Trump Administration has won the fight to restrict travel to the U.S. from certain Islamic Terrorist infected countries.

It is the Constitutional right and duty of the our President to restrict the immigration of individuals that could be a danger to America.

The growing number of horrific Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe are what must be prevented from occurring to America.

The Supreme has appropriately upheld this Presidential power.

Reparations for American Slavery?

October 22, 2017

 Reparations for American Slavery?

A dear friend sent me the following article. It focuses upon the demand by some black citizens for reparations “due them” for America’s early history of slavery.

That is a preposterous demand in my view and the following will address this demand.

The Article is, entitled “Slavery Reparations”, and is written by Fred Reed.

I view this and many other demands from the radical left as scurrilous subterfuge . There is not an ounce of rationality in this demand. Therefore, it is most sensible to view this demand as one of many, in a class of demands, that is a continuing battle plan by the progressive/socialist/Marxist radical left. The ultimate of this cabal is social chaos and upheaval sufficient to spark an American transformation to thoroughgoing socialism.

The opposition to this often disguised movement is composed of true conservatives working against an increasingly entitlement-dependent voting population in order to return to the Constitutional governance and traditional values that made America great.

While I agree with the logical objections to leftist blacks, and others, demands for paid reparations for slavery, I do not like the tone (snotty and condescending as it is), of Fred Reed’s venomous diatribe.

Never-the-less, his main points are spot-on about the problem behaviors of many blacks (absolutely not all) who mindlessly play the race and victim “card” to gain political, material and economic advantages. They are not alone as leftist political forces in America are complicit.

It is well documented that following America’s Civil War and Reconstruction, many Black families were largely intact and slowly making headway in America. This was occurring in spite of a long history of the evil systemic and stultifying racism that persisted for many decades.

If you will please read Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “The Big Lie” you will learn that this horrific brand of racism was perpetrated by left-wing democrats. While this assertion may its self sound like a big lie, as well as a false politically motivated conspiracy theory, the rational reader will be astonished at the level of scholarly documentation used to prove this stunning allegation.

In spite of the great gains that blacks in America have made, it would appear that far too many are trapped in festering expanses of ghetto quicksand. For these Americans the promise of advancement to prosperity has become the reality of regression.

This tragedy, along with many other indications of America’s great cultural decline, suggests a looming danger for every citizen.

Psychology’s premier law of behavior is the Law of Effect. This states that consequences control behavior and its power to shape and predict human behavior is as good as gold.

If America will only stop rewarding dependency among all races and redouble efforts to encourage and reward those who strive to break their history of poverty, under achievement and dependency, perhaps we can avert America’s looming cultural disaster.

Please read the following for its factual content and not its inflammatory style.

Rest assured that my next few blogs on this sad matter will bolster only the facts that follow. I will do so using a civil and respectful communication style.

Slavery Reparations  …………by Fred Reed!

On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to blacks..  It’s because of slavery,see. He is joined in this endeavor by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he’ll send me a bill, huh?

 I feel like saying, “Let me get this straight, Hank.  I’m slow.  Be patient.

You want free money because of slavery, right?  I don’t blame you..” I’d like free money too. Tell you what.  I believe in justice.  I’ll give you a million dollars for every slave I own, and another million for every year you were a slave.  Fair enough? 

But tell me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers, I mean…say to the nearest dozen.  And how long were you a slave?

Oh. In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn’t do and didn’t happen to you. That makes sense.  Like lug nuts on a birthday cake..

Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn’t do and never happened to me.  I’ve never been coated in Dutch chocolate and thrown from the Eiffel Tower.  I’ll bet you’ve never done it to anyone.  I want reparations.  Kind of silly, isn’t it?

But if we’re going to talk about reparations, that’s a street that runs in two directions.  You want money from me for what some other whites did to some other blacks in another century?

How about you guys paying whites reparations for current expenses caused by blacks?  

Not long ago blacks burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my country.  Cities are expensive, Hank.  

Build one sometime and you’ll see what I mean.  Whites had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for you.  You can send me a check.

Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn’t like the verdict in the trial of those police officers.  Well, I didn’t like the verdict in the Simpson trial. But I didn’t burn my house and loot Korean grocers, or burn down a city.

Over the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark, Detroit, Watts, on and on.  Now add in the fantastic cost over the years of welfare in all its forms, the cost of all of those police calls people had to make, for cells and jails and security systems in department stores.

I can’t live in the capital city of my own country because of crime committed by blacks. 

Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the benefit of blacks.  

See what I mean?

Now, I’d view things differently if you said to me, “Fred, blacks can’t get anywhere in a modern country without education.  

We know that.  We need better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, books with smaller pictures and bigger words.  Can you help us?”

I’d say, “Hallelujah! Hoo-ahh!  Not just yes, but hell yes.  Let’s sell an aircraft carrier and get these folks some real schools and get them into the economic main-stream.’ 

I’d say it is partly because it would be the right thing to do, and partly because I’d like to add you guys to the tax base.

The current custodial state is expensive.  I’d just love for blacks to study and learn to compete and stop burning places.  But is it going to happen?  

You may not believe it, but I, and most whites, don’t like seeing blacks as miserable and screwed up as they are..

I spend a fair amount of time in the projects. Those places are ugly.  It’s no fun watching perfectly good kids turn into semi-literate dope dealers who barely speak English.  It just plain ain’t right.  But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? 

I can’t do your children’s homework.  At some point, people have to do things for themselves, or they don’t get done..  Maybe it’s time.

I’ll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank…. I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it.  True, it has worked for over half a century.  

Get a few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and sadly the Great White Cash Spigot turns on.

Thing is, whites don’t much buy it any longer.  Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game.  Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of blacks.  Political correctness keeps the lid on — but everyone knows the score….  Which scares me, Hank.

On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and burning.  (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the civil-rights movement..  Ever think about that?)

On the other hand, whites quietly grow wearier and wearier of it.  Not good, Hank.

On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience), blacks keep demanding things.  As I write, you demand reparations for slavery.  Blacks in Oklahoma (I think it was) want money for some ancient race riot).

Other blacks reject the Declaration of Independence.  Blacks in New York hint broadly at burning and looting over a trial, yet more demand the elimination of the Confederate flag, and the federal equal opportunity apparatus, which means blacks, want to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring nonexistent black engineers.  That’s a lot of demanding for one month, Hank.

What happens if whites ever say, “No”?

Now, how about you?  You’ve got a cushy job up there at Harvard, and you can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are.  I guess it’s lots of fun, and you get a salary for it to boot.  But don’t you think you might do blacks more good if you told them to complain less and study more?

 For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best approach might be to find some really smart black guys, and get them to study digital design ~ not Black Studies (as  you teach).  That’s how everybody else does it.  It works.  Then blacks wouldn’t feel left out, and racial tensions would decline.  Sound like a plan?

Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black kids to study real-life sho-nuf subjects?

Women Need Guns

Women Need Guns

It is interesting that most out-spoken and politically militant feminists that I know do not support the Second Amendment. 

I know many less “stridently militant” feminists who courageously act upon their firm beliefs in equal opportunity and respect for all; and of course equal treatment under the law. I have watched them strive to be the best they can be in pursuit of all of their personal goals: As daughters, mothers, wives, and in their work-places, etc.  

As you likely know, America’s Second Amendment guarantees every law-abiding citizen’s the right to self-protection with a firearm, when it is absolutely necessary.

One area in which women really are inferior to men is in the biologically based differences in physical strength and the ability to inflict damage to someone with their bare hands.

Of course there are exceptions to this rule. But, unless you are one of those female exceptions, I must advise that you obtain professional training in the safe use, maintenance and storage of a firearm appropriate to your needs and skill level.

Finally, I challenge you to evaluate this short video and then present a persuasive argument supporting why women should not feel comfortable exercising their right to own a firearm.
