“Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs”

“Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs”

Thanks to Vic Palenske for sending this to me.

See America’s “Good Samaritan” delusional thinking and self-destructive policies on immigration.

When it comes to immigration, among many other neo-conservative and radical-liberal/progressive  policies, America is nuts!

America Is Nuts!

America Is Nuts!

I received the following from a dear friend.

This particular item has circulated the internet for some time. It is purported to have originated in Canada, however, its origin and author are unknown.

Wherever this list is from and whoever the author was does not matter to me…because the list is true.

Though I cannot vouch for each of the exact percentages quoted, or the exact dollar figures, there should be no doubt about the general truth and essential stupidity of these true and shameful allegations.

Perhaps there was a time in our history when America could count on the “wisdom of an informed voting public to sustain us”…that assumption should now be in grave and fearful doubt.

America has become a cornucopia of crazy and self-defeating cultural practices that defy logic and diminish ability our ability to survive as a leading Nation.

The following is a document that will confront you with this reality….see for yourself!

Reality may set you free, but first it will make you miserable.

____________________________________________________________________

This is Canada ‘s Top Ten List of America ‘s Stupidity.

Of course we look like idiots – we are!

# 10 Only in America … could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

# 09 Only in America… could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black, 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanic

# 08 Only in America… could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

# 07 Only in America… can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

# 06 Only in America… would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens. (probably should be number one)

# 05 Only in America … could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be called EXTREMISTS

# 04 Only in America … could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

# 03 Only in America … could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

# 02 Only in America… could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7 Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

# 01 Only in America…. could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

Bonus: ” Only in America do you have to pass a drug test to get a pay check, yet any crack head can get their welfare check no questions asked.”

PLEASE DON’T KEEP THIS – SEND IT OUT TO YOUR ENTIRE LIST.

Please do send this to all of your friends.

DOD and Military Celebrating LGBT Pride Month!

June 22, 2015

DOD and Military Celebrating LGBT Pride Month!

I was proud to join the U.S. Military, as did my father and others in my family for generations. However, I have talked to numerous veterans and many, just like me, would never willingly join today’s U.S. Military.

It is all part of the plan to weaken America’s military. I have heard officers tell me that today’s military is having difficulty recruiting personnel. There is little reason to wonder why. And you should not be surprised that our military is hoping to place women in combat. They are running out of men.

America is insane!

Among other progressive/self-destructive moves in recent years, it is politically imposing the will of a very small percent (perhaps under 5%) of our LGBT’s life-styles on all of us, even on our military!

Most of America is loosing the culture wars against religion and our traditional rules of social order.

America is fading into history. In its place is social chaos and only a passing memory for those of us from earlier and better times.

America Is Nuts: Sprinting Towards Sodom and Gomorrah

June 6, 2015

America Is Nuts: Sprinting Towards Sodom and Gomorrah

There are many stories about Sodom and Gomorrah (see the Wikipedia reference below).

I am using these terms to refer to the biblical account of cities that became so corrupted by ungoverned sexual behavior that they were destroyed by God.

Though I consider myself a Christian, I do not take all aspects of the Bible literally. However, I believe there are sections of the bible that represent a treasure trove of the revealed wisdom of the ages. I am convinced that individuals or sociocultures that spurn this wisdom do so at their own great, and even mortal, risk.

In my view, the Biblical account of Sodom and Gomorrah is one such example: I.e., ungoverned sexual behavior will destroy individual lives and it can also destroy entire sociocultures.

The disregulation of rules governing human sexual behavior in a society is just one, of a plethora of disregulations that naturally occur during the processes of sociocultural decline. My long-term research informs me that cultural decline may occur for numerous reasons, but the loss of traditional religions and the disorganization of sustaining moral/ethical standards become clear features of a great many sociocultures’ decline and even collapse.

Of course some religiously-based belief systems and codes-of-conduct have failed to sustain sociocultures. But, I know of no socioculture that has survived for many hundreds of years on the basis of pure Secular Humanism…The emerging dominant religion in Western Europe and now in America.

Secular Humanism is now the religion of America’s Government and all of its agencies, including the military.  This is the religion of the political forces of our undoing: Progressive Liberalism, Socialism and Communism…all existing on the same continuum of tyranny. Secular Humanism is also the religion of our federal government’s most powerful secular propaganda machine: the American entertainment media and majority of its news media.

See for yourself!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LGBT_sex_education

All of the above is now in competition with traditional Judeo/Christian ethics and morals. It should be clear that when one set of precepts and social guidelines advances the other must be weakened.

The ongoing assault upon our rule-governed sexual traditions is only one of many coordinated attacks upon America. It is no over-statement to call these attacks: “America’s Great Culture Wars”.

Which side you think is winning?

America: Founded by Geniuses..Run By Idiots!

America: Founded by Geniuses…Run By Idiots!

A friend sent the following to me, purported to be written by comedian Jeff Foxworthy. However, it appears to have been written by Fritz Edmunds and originally posted to a blog in 2013.

Like so many things floating through cyberspace, this document has been falsely attributed (see the bottom of the page for the Snopes analysis of authorship).

Never-the-less, this is a well-written smorgasbord of  life in the United States that supports my own assertion that America is Nuts. I hope you will locate my past blogs on the “America Is Nuts” theme.  Simply enter that title in my search box on the upper right side of this page).

The following list of American Idiocies further substantiates my position. It also goes to illustrate the age-old observation that tragedy and humor are closely related.

________________________________________________________

A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots
NOT BY Jeff Foxworthy

If you can get arrested
For hunting or fishing without a
License, but not for entering
And remaining in the country illegally, you might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If you have to get your
Parents permission to go on a
Field trip or to take an aspirin
In school, but not to get an abortion,
You might live in a
Nation that was founded by geniuses, but is run by idiots.

If you MUST show your
Identification to board an
Airplane, cash a check, buy liquor,
Or check out a library book and rent a video, but not to vote for
Who runs the government, you might live in a nation that was
Founded by geniuses, but is run by idiots.

If the government wants to
Prevent stable, law-abiding
Citizens from owning gun magazines
That hold more than ten rounds,
But gives twenty F-16 fighter jets
To the crazy new leaders in Egypt,
You might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If, in the nation’s largest
City, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas,
But not one 24-ounce soda,
Because 24-ounces of a sugary
Drink might make you fat,
You might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If an 80-year-old woman or a
Three-year-old girl who is
Confined to a wheelchair can be
Strip-searched by the TSA at the airport,
But a woman in a burka or a hijab
Is only subject to having her neck and head searched,
You might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If your government believes
That the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to
Spend trillions more,
You might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If hard work and success are
Met with higher taxes and
More government regulation and intrusion,
While not working is rewarded with Food Stamps, WIC
Checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free cell phones,
You might live in a nation
That was founded by geniuses, but is
Run by idiots.

If being stripped of your
Constitutional right to defend
Yourself makes you more safe
According to the government,
You might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

What a country!

Radical Liberal Bias In U.S. Education System?

November 29, 2014

Radical Liberal Bias In U.S. Education System?

Yesterday’s Blog starts with my stating that:

“The fastest way to ‘transform America’, or any socioculture for that matter, is to simply not teach the culture to the youth.”

What I should have said is the fastest way to “transform America”, or any socioculture, is to teach an alien antithetical history to its youth!

This is a more accurate statement of the long-term revolutionary take-over of America’s educational institutions by radical liberals. Robert Bork documented this cultural devolution in his book Slouching Towards Gomorrah in 1996. Robert Chandler provided a more in-depth historical analysis of this and other long-term liberal/socialistic/communistic strategies focused upon the destruction of our American Constitutional Republic in his 2008 book. Shadow World.

To understand what is really happening, and literally “driving America nuts”, these two books are essential reading. 

To understand what I mean by “driving America nuts” please see the following:  https://culturalsurvivalskills.wordpress.com/2014/03/27/america-is-nuts/

Also, to deepen your understanding of what is happening to America, it is essential that you and your loved-ones and friends see new Dinesh D’Souza’s new movie, America.

The Kelly File featured a special broadcast on the state of America’s Educational System, with an interview of Dinesh D’Souza. If you missed it, here is a hot-off-the-press authoritative assessment that all Americans must face and act upon…or the real America will be lost to history.

Please see this video.

America is Nuts: School Expels Good Samaritan!

March 28, 2014

America is Nuts: School Expels Good Samaritan!

When a culture punishes removes the teaching of virtuous behavior from its schools it is moving down the road to its decline.

When a culture allows the punishment of virtuous behavior in schools, it is accelerating rapidly to its end.

You must see the following to appreciate what it is that I am referring to.  You must know that this is only the tip of  the iceberg, so to speak.

The following quote is taken from Benjamin Franklin’s book: Poor Richard’s Almanac.

“No longer virtuous no longer free; is a Maxim as true with regard to a private person as a Common-Wealth.” (Kindle Loc. 594).

“Separation of Church and State”, taken to its current ridiculous extremes gets us this and much worse, as we so clearly can observe without bias.

You must see the following:

America Is Nuts!

America Is Nuts!

This description of someone; a group of someones; and yes even, an entire socioculture as being NUTS is a harsh pejorative sometimes wrongly pointed at those who would benefit most from kind and supportive assistance. In my professional work with individuals and families, I would consider the use of this term to be demeaning and unprofessional.

On the other-hand, it can be a wonderful American slang-invective, used as a vehement  denunciation or censure of general behavior patterns that destroy all that is precious and irreplaceable.

This is my intended use of this insulting term as I apply it to stupid, self-defeating, self-destructive, and suicidal, perceptions, beliefs, emotions, and behaviors that now typify America.

America’s psychological functioning is clearly incoherent, confused and stunningly conflicted. I could use a bunch of technological “psychobable” (as many would  it call). Or, I can say it like it is:

America Is Nuts! 

How else would you like to describe the following?

  • Politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising events.
  • People claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black; 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans — 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!
  • Two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turned out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.
  • We make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while  we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.
  • The people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution are  thought of as “extremists.
  • We demand that people present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.
  • People demand the government investigate whether oil companies are “gouging the public” because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).
  • The government collects more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spends a Trillion dollars more than it has per year —for total spending of around $7-Million PER MINUTE, and then complains that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.
  • Only in America could the rich people —who pay 86% of all income taxes — be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

America Is Nuts!

P.S.  America is still the greatest Nation and Culture on earth. Don’t get me wrong! But, America cannot contiue to be so if  “WeThe People” do not manage it more effectively.

The bulleted information above is based upon one of those Emails that travel through cyberspace with no authorship identified. I have “plagiarized” most of this, making small changes, and have fashioned it to my own purposes. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the statistics that are reported, however, the examples of each absurdity listed are certainly as true as they are absurd.

Thanks Lee Hornack for sending the original Email to me.
