The following with Russia’s aggression, China’s quest to invade Taiwan, and America’s sorry State of The Union, is a sobering development for those who do not have their heads in the sand.

Wake-Up America,

America with President Hillary

October 23, 2016

America with President Hillary

The following article is a short one. I am certain that it predicts Hillary’s America accurately.

Patriots should take just a few minutes to read it. If you do not agree, then I expect you will probably vote for the American future that is predicted below.

Then, America’s future cannot be anything other than what has happened over the past years. But everything we have  experienced over the past eight years will be more intensified because the past will have continued for at least four more years….and Hillary is poised to double down on Obama’s destructive actions.

Worst of all, if you will only think about the external and internal lethal forces poised to attack us, you can easily perceive even more catastrophic events that are likely in the near future. 

It is time to think very carefully about the past and future consequences of our own voting patterns and the resulting political actions of our representatives.

Cultural Complexity and Decline

October 13, 2016

Cultural Complexity and decline

The following text is Quoted from Plato’s Revenge: Politics in the Age of Ecology, by William Ophuls, Kindle page 138-139. This book is an essential read for anyone who remains perplexed by America’s dramatically declining condition, as well as our debouched political system.

_____________________________________________________

When we recognize its necessity, we shall see that a simpler way of life might indeed be more virtuous and happy than the one we now believe represents the acme of human progress. In the first place, industrial civilization has become too complex and interlinked for its own good. As Joseph Tainter points out, an excess of complexity, usually aggravated by other factors, has spelled the downfall of previous civilizations. (13)  The costs of increasing complexity grow disproportionately until they eventually reach a point of diminishing or even declining returns. the civilization therefore has to run harder and harder to make further progress or even to stay in the same place.

In addition,  a civilization already stressed by the high costs of complexity may no longer be resilient enough to respond to further challenges. It risks a cascade of failure should a critical link fail for whatever reason. The interconnected institutions of a highly complex society are like mountain climbers tied to one rope with no belay: the fall of one can trigger the death of all. For example, the world financial system experiences periodic crises when the failure of one bank brings down a host of counterparties. Similarly,  a sudden or significant increase in the price of a critical commodity, such as petroleum, can choke an industrial superstructure predicated on cheap and abundant energy. The further danger is that  such a crisis can trigger psychological panic and social pandemonium. In short, the higher we build the edifice of civilization, the more vulnerable we become to catastrophe. A simpler, more resilient way of life would therefore be advisable on prudential grounds alone.

But our primary concern here is politeia, and the political argument for cultural simplicity is that great size and complexity produce a debased politics. When a polity grows beyond certain bounds, oligarchy in the bad sense is inescapable, the burden of bureaucracy grows ever more stifling, and genuine consent of the governed is practically unattainable.  A vicious circle fostering ever greater  centralized planning, administrative intervention, and political control takes over. If democracy survives at all, it will be a token democracy shadowed by the lurking menace of mob rule.

In the United States today, for instance, a tiny circulating policy elite makes all the important decisions in ways that align the interests of government, finance, and business. Since the system is “democratic,” the elite has to take into account the passions of the mob, which can erupt if its ox is palpably gored. So as long as he American ruling class provides the bread of affluence and the entertaining media circus, it can do pretty much as it likes. Having long since outgrown the relatively simple conditions required to support its constitutional design, the United States has therefore become an imperial polity bearing no resemblance whatsoever to the original American republic. Such is  the political price of great size and complexity .

End of Quote.

It is clear that the ol’ saying: “Nothing Lasts forever” applies to everything we cherish, including our home-land; the once great socioculture of the United States of America.

America’s stability and permanence is an illusion. Indeed, simplifying the American lifestyle would promise to bring benefits to many people. But, we might then be hard-pressed to imagine how we would go about winning WWIII, in which our very existence is now on the line.

This is particularly the case when so many of our citizens and politicians suffer from pathological levels of denial of the current war on Western Civilization and also from delusions of an achievable peace through kindness, acceptance and forbearance toward America’s mortal external and internal enemies.

Climate Change Issues Remain Unresolved

October 6, 2014

Climate Change Issues Remain Unresolved

I have suffered some strong verbal assaults in debate with people about global warming. Even from very close friends.

However, my judgement remains that “climate change” is a fact. The climate has forever been changing.

It seems logical that humans are, to some degree, contributing to these changes.

Unfortunately, scientists have not been able to agree upon the significance of their contributions to climate change and what they mean for the future.

The real world can be fiendishly complex, and science is presently pushed beyond its limits to provide the specific data- based predictions about its intermediate and deferred normally vastly changing weather patterns.

It is common sense to recommend that humanity organize itself to pollute the environment as little as possible. However, I will also recommend that this not be done at the expense of the destruction of America’s economy,  the loss of America’s sovereignty, or the loss of America’s ability to defend itself in its struggle for survival during what is now WWIII.

Of course, I am referring to America’s, and all Western Civilization’s,  life or death struggle with Radical Islam’s Terror-based quest for a World-Wide Caliphate. Many will slow to admit this reality, but they are in for a rude awakening.

The following article will illustrate my position on the matter of climate change. This is the one that I must recommend to you. It is important that you take the time necessary to read this medium-long article in order to be informed on this all-to-emotional, though important issue.

Also, understand that this issue has been co-opted by radical progressives, socialists and communists in order to gain greater power in their quest to “Transform America” into their own consistently failed utopian fantasies.

This last matter is the subject of the second shorter, clearly illustrated article documenting the dissident’s transparent  revolutionary strategies…straight out of the socialist/communist playbooks.

If you cannot find time to read the first article please be sure to evaluate the second one.

America’s New Gay and Lesbian Military

September 21, 2011

America’s New Gay and Lesbian Military

When Admiral Mullen recommended the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy on gays and lesbians in the our military last year, I wrote a couple of blogs on this issue.

Last night at midnight, openly gay and lesbian citizens were welcomed into America’s military. Those who  are already in the military “came-out” on the news and one male Naval Officer was married to his male partner with full news coverage.  It was also reported that a great many gays and lesbians who had previously been forced to leave the military were thinking of joining once again.

I am suffering “chronic fatigue syndrome” with respect to this  particular issue and I cannot bring myself to write more on this topic.

I therefore will present my blog of last year, which says all that I wish to say on this topic. I hope you will read it for the first time, or refresh your memory about my grave concerns for the efficiency and strength of our military.

The risky experiment as now begun. This in a time of a fatigued and overburdened military, fighting WWIII, facing sharp funding cut-backs. God help us….We shall now see the results.

P.S. I am suspicious that this policy change is a symptom of our badly over-extended military, in desperate need of new military personnel. Our Government would not admit this if it were so.

Openly Gay Military! What’s Your Vote?

A USA Today February 3, 2010 article (p. 6A) presented the following:

“Repealing the policy against openly Gay men and Lesbians in the military ‘would be the right thing to do’.” This is according to the Nations top uniformed military officer, Admiral Michael Mullen, Chairman of the Join Chiefs of staff.

He went on to say, “ However, eliminating the current ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy will cause some disruption in the force.”

Admiral Mullen further stated: “Allowing Lesbians and Gay men to serve openly is an issue of integrity–theirs as individuals and ours as an institution. I also believe that great young men and women of our military can and would accommodate such a change”.

Senator John McCain’s response was the following: “At this moment of immense hardship for our armed services we should not be seeking to overturn the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell policy’.”

So there is the issue. You can decide as you wish. But, I have long ago made my decision and it is not favorable to this primarily political movement which threatens the strength of our military.

I believe that I am qualified to speak to this issue in many ways because I have had a good amount of experience with Gay and Lesbian individuals and issues. As a psychotherapist, I have done my best to help them and their families cope with the many social problems associated with this way of life and I have felt great compassion for all concerned. I have happily worked with, liked and respected, many Gays and Lesbians in numerous professional venues. Finally, and most relevant to the present issue, I was accused of being Gay and investigated by an agency of the federal government when I was in the Navy.

Here’s my story.

In 1960 they were building my submarine. It was a brand new Fleet Ballistic nuclear powered  submarine. It was armed with 16 multiple nuclear war-headed missiles. Our submarine played an important role in the “cold war” against Russia. The strategy was one of “Mutually Assured Destruction”. If they destroyed us, they knew for certain that we would destroy them and nothing could stop us. Those were the “good ol’ days”. Mutually assured destruction would appear to be irrelevant to our new mortal enemies who’s God handsomely rewards their self-destruction in the service of His goals.

While our submarine was being built our crew lived ashore for a while. A new shipmate invited my best friend and I to share his apartment. It was our second night there when my buddy shook me awake in the early morning. He was in a panic: “Moe! X grabbed my ‘cock’ last night! I’m getting out of here! We immediately left to look for another apartment.

The Gay sailor was a higher rank than we were, we were just 19 yrs. of age and did not know what to do. Should we tell? What will happen to us? Do we keep our mouths shut? We were pretty shook-up. Regrettably, we made the wrong decision and we kept quiet.

The Gay guy did the same thing to another sailor, of equal rank, and that sailor told an officer about the incident. Soon my best buddy and I were under suspicion and investigation for being homosexuals (the term used in that day). We were scared to death.

My heart was in my throat as the intimidating men in civilian suits interrogated me. All I could do is what my parents taught me: I anxiously told the truth. One of the men leaned into my face and aggressively accused me of “corn-holing” my buddy. My fear turned to anger and indignation as I raised my voice and profanely corrected the man’s point of view. I was dismissed shortly after that. I never hear another word about the incident, except from my shipmates. They sometimes teased my buddy and I about the incident, but they all knew the truth—we were “pitifully trapped” in our heterosexuality.

Our homosexual shipmate simply vanished, to our great relief.

Looking back, from my perspective of 69 years of age, I do not hate or despise my short-term homosexual shipmate. He was a young man driven to desperation by his ungoverned sexuality. I hope he lived happily ever-after. He simply had no business on my submarine, or in any other branch of our military.

I am in favor of the current “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

If we choose to do the “Openly Gay” social experiment in the United States Military it will be increasingly burdened with new social, ethical, administrative, logistical, investigative and legal entanglements. At just the moment when our military can least afford such distractions.

As Admiral Mullen stated: “Allowing Lesbians and Gay men to serve openly is an issue of integrity…..”. Of course, it is a matter of integrity during a time of  war when our military must remain the most fierce and effective fighting force in the world— or all may be lost. It is a matter of Admiral Mullen’s integrity, which he has surrendered to the Obama administration’s mad dash to impose as many self-defeating progressive policies on this Nation as he can, before he loses the power of the Presidency.

I would like to see Admiral Mullen’s resignation.

Good Luck America!
