Independence Day

My Flag Flies Every Day

On this prestigious day please play safe, and remember what the day commemorates, Independence for all. The men who signed the Declaration of Independence put themselves on the line for the new country. Had they failed to defeat Britain all of them would have been executed. Instead we have the strongest country in the world. Because of our strength, all other countries who wish to knock us off the pedestal are friendly enemies (is there such thing)? China, Russia, Cuba, Venezuela, are just a few of them with goals to defeat America and Capitalism.

Independence Day also celebrates the birthday of our country. We are now two hundred and forty-four years old as a nation.

Happy Birthday America

Change or Not?

There is a ninety percent chance that I will get into trouble for expressing my opinion on this matter. The article below is very timely and very true. Surprisingly, it is written by a very liberal author who works for a very liberal newspaper published in a very black city. He very adroitly lists all the things we have tried to solve the divide between blacks and white in the USA. He is very correct in all of them, but I believe he left out one very important point, i.e. the root cause of the problem. First, please read the essay and then I will add my argument.

 “The Baltimore Sun is definitely not known as a Conservative newspaper, so this very well written assessment of the situation in USA comes as something of a surprise..  “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. 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.  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. 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. Through the years, too many black people continue to show an inability to function and prosper in a culture unsuited to them.  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. 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.  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.  Some argue its a problem of culture, as if culture creates peoples behavior instead of the other way around. 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 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. *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.* 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.” 

Ian Duncan The Baltimore Sun

The part of the experiment that is ignored is the part about examining the laws and policies that have contributed to creating the culture that has permeated the black society. This new culture of the Great Society has created a black culture that rejects religion, family, and marriage. Instead it promotes having children, not because it is a natural by product of marital love but because that is what increases their wealth on welfare. In fact, a husband is a detriment to a woman who wants a better livelihood. Men would inevitably go to work for the family and thus endanger the limit a unit can earn before it loses the handout.

Another policy that has failed is that of promoting abortion for the black society based on the premise that this is the best way to control the number of people that are on welfare. (Nancy Pelosi has stated this). Black men raised by single mother’s typically lose to gangs and the mentality of studding. Look at the statistics of black super stars who have fathered multiple children by as many wives as there are kids. The lack of religion and a father figure to lead these men has ruined their ability to think with their God given brain and to defer to their God given penis.

I received the following essay:

Not  Only  the  Knee. . . !The knee is not the only problem . . . 68 children by 52 women! 7 players! 

 Children raised in fatherless homes, especially black children, are far more likely than children raised in two parent homes to engage in criminal behavior and thus have contact with police. Ergo when they father a child with a woman to whom they are not married—or at least living with—they are contributing to the problem against which these football players are taking a knee. If you look at many of these players’ records on out-of-wedlock children, you find that they are contributing significantly to the problem against which they are protesting.  For example:

Antonio Cromartie has 12 children   by 9 different women.  Apparently the NFL had to shell out $500,000 before he could even play football for them.

Travis Henry has 11 children   by 10 women,

Willis McGahee has 9 children   by 8 women,

Derrick Thomas has 7 children   by 5 different women,

Bennie Blades has 6 children   by 6 women, 

Ray Lewis has 6 children   by 4 women, and

Marshall Faulk has 6 children   by 3 women.  

Adrian Peterson has 11 kids from 7 different women.  Before these guys take a knee they should take a good look in the mirror as it appears that their problem is not the knee.

No where in the Baltimore Sun’s essay is there a word regarding action to correct failures of the Civil Rights act, and the policies emanating from it nor to add the root cause of the problems. It was the designed intention of President Lyndon Johnson who signed it into law to make Civil Rights his legacy. He bragged to governors that the Civil Rights act of 1964 with the following statement, “I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for two hundred years.” The sole intent of the act is to guarantee Democrats political offices which they do not deserve, but desecrate with their vile society-splitting rhetoric and meaningless laws.

It is time to repeal the Civil Rights Act and all the Great Society policies that were derived from it, and to rewrite it into something that works and is meaningful.

My Update on COVID-19

With all the new knowledge of Covid-19 it is becoming more apparent that people don’t give a damn any more. Our Governor just announced that Illinois is not ready for Phase Four reopening. I agree. Last night after supper I was invited to meet a group of friends in town for a drink. I thought, why not? I’ll take my mask and have a beer with some friendly chatter. I’m tired of talking to myself even though I am the smartest person I know.

We were meeting at the bowling alley. Frankfort’s bowling alley is very old and has been in business non-stop since the forties. It is in a two story building which houses a number of shops. The bowling alley is on the second floor. Phase three rules state that restaurants and bars can open only if outside on patios with tables spaced apart and servers must were masks. The bowling alley has a small strip of property adjacent to the building which they fenced off and converted to a patio.  To make it nicer they installed a tent over the entire space.

When I arrived, the patio was crowded with people, none were masked. They congregated in groups around stand up tables, and were being served by an unmasked server; the owner behind a makeshift bar. It was an enjoyable evening seeing friends whom I haven’t seen in quite some time. I even managed to make a new friend who happens to live in my neighborhood on the next street over. That made me happy. What didn’t make  me happy was how congenial everyone was and handshaking like old times. That made me uneasy, and I couldn’t wait to get home to wash my hands. Granted, these people were ten-twenty years younger than me so they are not as affected by the virus. I’d like to think that I’m in great shape and have robust health enough to resist the virus or to beat it if I contract it. The statistics don’t say that. I should not take a Laissez-faire attitude about it all, I should maintain strict adherence to the Covid-19 protocols. I told myself that I must refuse new invitations to meet with my friends.

Will County, Illinois which is where I live is still reporting thirty-five cases of the virus daily with surges to over a hundred. That tells me the virus is still present and very close to me. Nationwide, the spread is concentrated in the southern states. They are stretching toward a peak. A month ago, my son in Texas reported to me that the virus was not very active, but now, the hospitals are nearing capacity and the number of deaths is increasing. This southern wave extends all across Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona. When will it end, who knows? While it is stretching across one part of our country the northern states are beginning to allow people to travel and to enter the country from other places. No doubt, the virus will be like a ping pong ball going back and forth across the lines and probably changing forms as it does. The big news was that Disneyland in Florida reopened. They thrive on visitors from South America, and the virus is spreading like wildflower in Brazil; we shut down air traffic from Brazil.

In my younger days I would have dreamed up a plan to take my anger out on China. My plan would have been to drop a bomb with COVID-19 on Bejing and Shanghai. In my current state of mind, I have too much empathy for the common folk who live there. They wouldn’t deserve such treatment. So, I have to modify the plan to develop a bug that only evil government officials are affected by, but instead of that I will concentrate on developing a vaccine to take out COVID-19 and all forms of corona viruses. The only form of selective bug that I know of for taking out evil people is the bullet. It is better to think positively and to do what is least evil to mankind.

A Little Political Humor

This story was sent to me by a friend and it is too good not to share;

Butch. The Rooster.

Sarah was in the fertilized egg business.  She had several hundred young pullets and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

She kept records and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.

This took a lot of time, so she bought some tiny bells and attached them to her roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so she could tell from a distance which rooster was performing. Now, she could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

Sarah’s favourite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen but, this morning she noticed old Butch’s bell hadn’t rung at all! When she went to investigate, she saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To Sarah’s amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn’t ring.He’d sneak up on a pullet, do his job, and walk on to the next one.

Sarah was so proud of old Butch, she entered him in a Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the “No Bell Peace Prize” they also awarded him the “Pulletsurprise” as well.

Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren’t paying attention?

Vote carefully in the next election. You can’t always hear the bells.

Armed Fairies or Fairies and Robbers

Our country has gone absolutely insane. I’m sorry Liberals, but your move to defund the police is asinine. I am not in love with the police, but I am not in love with public violence and storm troopers with bats either. A few years ago I wrote a piece about how stupid I thought the local police are in Will County Illinois because they bought an armored vehicle. Why did they do it? Because they didn’t like being shot at by villains and the armored truck gave them protection. How unfair I thought. If I were a criminal I’d be looking for a bigger, better armored vehicle to fight with. That kind of thinking i.e. even out the playing field between cops and criminals yielded the popularity of cops arming themselves militarily. Back in the sixties the argument was that the criminals were using high capacity automatic weapons and the cops still had six shooters. I also argue that my sleepy little town of Frankfort doesn’t need forty cops on the payroll, but we do. The Mayor believes we need that many and more to provide us with protection.

My biggest gripe with the local police is the need for speed traps. Why? To be safe and to cut down on the number of deaths and injuries caused by speeding automobiles. All the speed traps do is piss off the drivers and generate a ton of money for the police force. So, if I am so against police why do I say Americans are asinine? Because there has to be some kind of balance between good and evil, like good =100 and evil =0. I also like a peaceful community.

What the Liberals propose is to de-fund police departments. That would cause communities to eliminate the police. We are a country built on the rule of law, and police are with us to enforce laws. Liberals might say that we can enforce laws with peaceful unarmed fairies. They would flit about with their magic wands and bags of fairy dust to sprinkle on criminals to deter their evil actions.

Will the world ever eliminate all evil? I don’t see that happening. There is a law of nature that dictates that for every positive there is an equal negative. It doesn’t sound right, but there is and always will be evil to fight against good. Sometimes, the evil doers will become very evil and cause harm to the good. That is when the fairies are needed to referee the matches between, and to over power the evil forces. This all assumes that good is better quality than evil. Good must prevail over evil, and cops are a necessary evil to maintain good.

Think about a world where there is absolutely no good, only evil. It is my belief that someone amongst us would realize that good is a better way to live, and begin to ward off evil. That is why we would invent cops and that is why we need cops, and not unarmed fairies.
