PSA-170919-Baby Step to Improvement

IT TAKES SO LITTLE TO SOLVE BIG PROBLEMS!

For generations the Black community in Baltimore has been under assault by 4 Confederate Monuments! These monuments were relentless in their destruction of the Black family, resulting in over 70% of Black children being born out-of-wedlock.
So affected are Baltimoreans by these monuments that over 60% of Black men in the city could not work a job and found comfort in fathering many children with too many different women that they could not feed, nor support.
Just knowing that the monuments were there made Black school children have the lowest test scores in the Nation and many turned to drugs to relieve the pressures of those damnable monuments’ presence.
Worst of all, the mere existence of the monuments caused death! Not being able to handle the hate and violence that the monuments represented, the black men in the city took to killing each other. Just in the last 2 years they have murdered over 500 of their own!
It is a new occupying way-of-life! Praise be to God, and for the Wisdom of the Mayor…..
It is a new dawn for Black Baltimoreans! THE CITY CAN NOW PROSPER!
The shackles are gone, and we can all say…

“Free at last, free at last, Thank God Almighty, we’re free at last!”

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

One can now expect that Baltimore black men will marry their girl friends, and single mothers will become a term unheard of. All blacks who want a job to support their family will have one, and black children will have the social connection they need to succeed in school. Baltimore will be the model city in America proving once and for all that those damned Confederates were the cause of all racism, and hatred of blacks in America. There will no longer be a need for laws allowing blacks to receive favor for entrance into schools,  favored in job applications, and granted mortgages they can’t afford. Black Lives Matter, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton will retire permanently because their cause is gone. America will be great again, and live happily ever after.

On My Honor

 

theheartsofmen-cover.jpg

My technique for finding good books to read has once again rewarded me. It is simple. Walk into the library, find the recent book shelfs and explore the titles. This time it was the cover art that sucked me in. How could a former scoutmaster like myself resist a book with a Boy Scout on the cover? In fact, this art is not original, I recall this being a Norman Rockwell depiction. Regardless, the story is called The Hearts of Men, by Nickolas Butler.

I have to hand it to Nick, he stayed true to his theme right to the very end, and wrote a story about Scouts and the impact that Scouting has on boys who eventually become men. The story is about friendship that begins in scout camp, and ends at the death-bed.  The lead characters become fathers, and grand fathers whose sons, and grand kids become characters too.

Author Butler also gives us an insight into the effects of the Viet Nam War, and the scars it left on those who fought. It isn’t pretty. My heart felt the pain of the Vets who did make it home to suffer for the remainder of their lives with PTSD, and horrific dreams.

By the end of the story I suffered an attack of dry eye. The outcome being a massive gush of tears flooding from my eyes to compensate for the dryness. I’m sure anyone who reads this story will encounter a similar attack.

The description of scout summer camp could only have been told by a former camper, and the realism of the effects of war also smacks of one who has experienced it. I’m going to be thinking about this story for a long, long time. Within the camp stories there is realistic depiction of men and their relationships with their mothers, fathers, wives, girlfriends, lovers, and buddies. The characters are real, and the emotions expressed are definitely true. The description of the scenes etched pictures in the mind, and the dialogue between characters is very believable and real.

Lessons For All Of Us, Even Liberals

fa175d717b2957fb3e56a5a3cc77aa83--funny-things-funny-stuff.jpg

I figure that one reason these practices have ceased to exist is because more than seventy  million new immigrants have arrived from at least two hundred and six different countries since all of this was standard practice in our society.

 

 
 
Black and White
Black and White

(Under age 45? You won’t understand)

 
You could hardly see for all the snow,
Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go.
 
‘Good Night, David.
 
Good Night, Chet.’
 
My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn’t seem to get food poisoning.
 
My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter and I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not
in ice pack coolers, but I can’t remember getting E.coli.
 
Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.

 
We all took gym, not PE… and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked’s (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can’t recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.
 
Flunking gym was not an option… Even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.
 
Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.
 
We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours
wore a hat and everything.
 
I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.
 
I just can’t recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.
 
Oh yeah.. And where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!
 
We played ‘king of the hill’ on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn’t sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.
 
Now it’s a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $99 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.
 
We didn’t act up at the neighbor’s house either; because if we did we got our butt spanked there and then we got our butt spanked again when we got home.
 
I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off.
 
Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house.
 
Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a jerk. It was a neighborhood run amuck.
 
To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family.
 
How could we possibly have known that?
 
We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes.
 
We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills, that we didn’t even

notice that the entire country wasn’t taking Prozac!

 
How did we ever survive?
 
LOVE
TO ALL OF US WHO SHARED THIS ERA; AND TO ALL WHO DIDN’T, SORRY FOR WHAT YOU MISSED. I WOULDN’T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING!
 
Pass
this to someone and remember that life’s most simple pleasures are very often the best.

 

One More Off the Bucket List

northern_mockingbird_4.jpg

Some days things go right. Last week I toured the shelves of the library to find a new read. Usually, I find a shiny new cover which speaks to me. On this day a dull old cover jumped off the shelf and said “take me.” I was almost embarrassed to check it out. My guess is that when I finally tell you what the book is you will think, “how the heck have you gone so long without ever reading this most recommended story.” I’ve seen it on every recommended book list that my seven grandchildren have brought home from school. The only excuse I have is that To Kill A Mockingbird was published four years after I graduated from high school.

After reading the story non-stop I wholly agree with every high school teacher in the country that this book is a must read for kids. First, because it is about kids, second, it is about prejudice, and third, it is historical because the story takes place in 1930’s Alabama. I am pleased to report that America has changed dramatically since that time period, thank God. I am sure that the black American population will argue that America is still highly prejudiced, but I would hope they would also agree that we are nowhere near the level of prejudice we were eighty-seven years ago.

I would argue that prejudice in America is at a tipping point. What I mean is that there is a prevalent prejudice of whites. The government has passed so many laws and acts to curb prejudice and to equalize rights that it is now in favor of blacks. How on earth could the term white privilege have been invented? Whites in America are so racked with guilt over our historical past that they are self-immolating amongst themselves. On the other side, blacks are so inspired by their new-found rights they are over indulging. The Black Lives Matter Movement is certainly a hint that the direction of black superiority has inculcated to the extent that they believe it is okay to kill white police officers without any plausibility or due process.  How is it different when a black sneaks up on a police car to shoot the officer within than a bunch of white sheeted coward terrorists hang a black man from a tree.

It might be a good idea if all men white, red, black, and yellow read To Kill A Mockingbird and decide for themselves if our society has progressed toward the better.

“Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit ’em, but remember it’s a sin to kill a mockingbird.”

I Get No Respect

Ask anyone in America why our kids are so screwed up, and they might say because they have no respect for their elders. They are coddled, and spoiled by too many over generous relatives, and a society that has worked overtime to create a perfect world.

What we fail to understand is that Utopia is an old idea which has maintained its desirability. We just don’t accept the fact that building Utopia is impossible. Looking into the mirror we see that our kids are obviously spoiled brats. Their only desire in life is to sit in a safe space with a smart phone in hand, or a video game player. Ask them what they want to be when they grow up, and you get a blank stare. That is one reason the Affordable Care Act is so expensive, it allows a kid to stay on his parent’s insurance plan until he is twenty-six years old. It doesn’t make sense to me at all because we urge them to vote by the time they are eighteen, and to join the military when they are eighteen, but they can’t find a job to get their own health insurance until they are twenty-six.

I love to listen to old guys tell me their life stories, and I have always admired those of them who left home at age eleven to become independent. My own father and mother  left their homes at age sixteen to migrate to a better life. When I see a sixteen year old today, I see a toddler who must still be left in a playpen to stay safe.

The video below depicts a real life story of a youngster from another country where parents still have control of their kids and the kids still respect their elders.

Circular Evolution

Immigration is a touchy issue. I am reading a book titled Texas which chronicles the history of Mexico and Texas. I am at the section of the book which deals with Indians. In the beginning Indians owned North America, but they were invaded by immigrants from all sides. White people looking to live free came from all over Europe to settle in a place where there was no Prince or King to tell them how to live their lives. Land was plentiful and free. At first the Indians allowed them to live with them, but then the whites came in greater numbers, and they began forcing the Indians out of their territories. As time went on more and more people came to North America to settle in a free land. Indians were forced westward out of their land. They resented it and fought back committing terrible atrocities as was their custom. They fought as Indians knew to fight. The whites thought the Indians were being savage. They were merely practicing their customs.

After Texas separated from Mexico and became a state there was a problem with Comanche Indians. The Comanches had been moved from place to place several times and they were pissed to have to move again. They refused to do so without a fight Comanche style. Whites flooded into Texas from the north and east. Mexicans came in from the south.  It was a Comanche custom to kill pioneers or anyone who infringed on their lands. They had a notion that to be killed by a Comanche was an honorable death, therefore, a pioneer who died a very slow death by torture made it even more honorable. This custom did not bide well with white people. Another custom was to kill the pioneer family except for one, usually a young girl or woman. They then used the white girl in negotiations with the white man, The problem was how they treated her before the negotiations. The opportunity for negotiations with the whites could take years to come about. In the meantime the girl was a sex slave to the young bucks of the tribe. Another custom was to torture the sex slave by slowly burning their ears and nose off.

As I read this horrible treatment a thought came to mind. At this point in history we, meaning you and me, are the current Indians of the United States. We are being invaded by immigrants namely Hispanics, Asians, and Muslims. These people also have strange cultures and customs. The Muslims probably have the most of any, like be-heading, stoning, genital mutilation, honor killing, and many more.  At this point in history we probably don’t have much to worry about, but as the immigrant numbers increase and the number of communities we refer to as no-go zones grows, the foreign cultural practices will become more openly practiced. Will it ever come to the point of us having to annihilate the source of the trouble? I don’t know, and won’t live long enough to find out, but my take on the matter is that the problem is best avoided by keeping the influx of migrants to a trickle. Once the population of people with strange cultures grows beyond what we can control the problem becomes huge.

Well, you say, we have laws to keep people from walking all over us.  What if one of the strange cultural differences is a set of laws they believe over ride all the laws we have on the books? Sharia law is such a system. Ultimately, when a migrant population that won’t assimilate reaches a point they can move the home team out, they will insist on imposing their will upon the others. The battle that ensues will be called genocide by both sides. If the home team loses we will have completed a full circle of evolution from living in a closed society to living free, and revert back to a closed society.

Just My Humble Opinion

Sexual_Harassment_4062.png

One of the biggest news items this week is that Bill O’Reilly has been forced to leave Fox News after spending seventeen years on the cable news program. He has been accused of sexual harassment by several women. I have a problem with that. It is my humble opinion that these women are all left wingers who are so upset with O’Reilly’s friendship with Trump that they have ponyed up the claims just to hurt him and Fox news.

I worked in a coed office environment and can testify that some women are paranoid. The company hired a consultant to come in to train all supervisors on the abc’s of sexual harassment. The whole matter is highly subjective, and biased in the women’s favor. The government smartly put the onus on the employer. If one of our people was accused of sexual harassment the company was obligated to do something about it. If they didn’t, the company was liable for the outcome.

Some girls thought it was a shame. The first lady draftsman I hired for the company actually had a sign hanging in her cube which said, “I tolerate sexual harassment, but it will be graded.”

One of the most serious incidents occurred between an engineer and the girl who made blueprints of our machine drawings. The engineer was an older man sixty-ish, and a confirmed bachelor who lived with his mother and another single brother. The girl who made the copies was a hot twenty something who oozed sex appeal. There wasn’t a guy in the department who didn’t make a move on her daily.  One day she came into my office, and told me that Ronald was harassing her. I almost fell out of my chair. “How does he bother you?” I asked.

“He comes to the print room and stands at the service window watching me.”

I was stunned. “He watches you/”

“Yes.”

“How often does this happen?”

“Sometimes, several times a day., He creeps me out.”

Let me give you some background on Ronald. He takes care of his aged mother with his younger brother. He has several other siblings all of whom are married and have children. Ronald is an introvert. He will only speak when spoken to, and will not offer information unless asked. His dream is to retire to Arkansas with his brother. He spends his lunch hour designing the perfect retirement home with an elevator. The elevator is just in case he is too feeble to use stairs. Ronald speaks highly of his family, and his nieces and nephews. He has photos of them around his desk.

When I confronted Ronald about the accusation of harassment he was just as surprised as I was. “All I do is wait for a chance to ask her to make a print for me, and she ignores me.” I bought his explanation because that is the Ronald I knew. It didn’t matter, he was accused of harassment, and I had to write up my discussion with him, and put it into his file. I instructed him to leave a written request form at the door with the original, and to leave instead of waiting.

Men and women can speak to each other very explicitly with double entendres and sometimes outright invitations to sexual encounters without any talk of harassment. Yet, there are times when the words, or a look, or an implication becomes harassment. Only the woman knows when she feels threatened. If she chooses to speak up, the employer must address the situation.

I bring this up because sometimes what is simple miscommunication can be construed as harassment. Then there are other times when the harassment is clearly a breach of common sense. I am hoping that the Bill O’Reilly incident is one of the simple ones which are ridiculous. Unfortunately, this afternoon I heard a rumor from a friend that he was taped by a woman while he was talking to her in sexually explicit manner. My buddies rumor turned out to be an article by columnist John Kass who writes for the Chicago Tribune. I trust Kass, he is a true journalist meaning his seeks the truth and writes it as it is.  In his article Who Wrote Killing Bill o’Reilly? he describes the encounter which did O’Reilly in. O’Reilly is toast. He used his power to seduce a woman for his own gratification. He wasn’t a Ronald waiting at the window in the print room, he was a sexual predator. It is sad because I liked his reporting.

Bill-OReilly-Fox-640x480.jpg

Fox news will survive, and so will Bill O’Reilly, but they won’t be in business together. There is a good chance that O’Reilly will never work on TV again.

What is strange about this story is the incident took place in 2004. Why did it take thirteen years to make the news and what took Fox News so long to decide they had a problem? Like I said in the beginning of this post, it is most likely a Left wing assault on an enemy.
