It was never about health

For over 3 months, the US has watched as virtually everyone has been ordered to stay at home. There were areas where this didn’t happen, but those are few and far between. Mostly, it was a scale from the lax quarantine of places like Texas to the almost guarded streets of California. As people watched the <i>news</i> it was always portrayed as “flattening the curve” or “a health need,” but if that was true, why have we never done this before in anyone’s lifetime who isn’t 100 years old?

The secret is all but out, it was about crippling the economy, so that politicians who don’t like that there is now a man in the White House who isn’t beholden to them could say “see, you’re worse off, vote for us and we’ll let you go back to work.” And to prove this, the tweet below was sent but later deleted, likely by someone who has now told AOC not to admit their goals.

Truth
AOC Admits the truth

Granted, it was gone fast, but as we all know, the internet is forever, and as long as even one person grabbed an image of it, it will never die. Trust me, Beyonce is still upset a freeze frame of her won’t go away, although China figured out they can just block websites country wide.

It’s more sinister than that though, as there are long running dreams of liberals the world over, to supplant God then become gods. They are working to map the human genome so they can genetically modify anyone, and ultimately clone anyone they deem worthy of such a gift. Watch The Sixth Day, it’s not one of Arnold’s greatest movies, but it’s this very premise, and that plot should scare you.

Why this is worrying now, as opposed to “just go to your Doctor, you’ll get better” for SARS, MERS, or H1N1, and how the seasonal flu is treated, is this one has been ramped up, even to the point of not allowing Doctors to prescribe a medication with 50 years of use for respiratory viruses (Malaria) to be used now, as it was working well. Even Amy Klobuchar, who was not happy that the President repeated what some Doctors said about Hydroxychloroquine, admitted it likely saved her husband’s life. But don’t take my word for it, here’s a Texan Doctor on the subject.

Or how about a video where a doctor exposes a decades long pattern of people in research not only working on engineering viruses and other pathogens, but also working to hide their work, in some cases even causing a massive death toll, to the point where she was almost jailed, and her career and life has certainly been dragged into the sewer.

It’s very simple, so simple it’s almost a wonder people aren’t waking up to this, but it’s no wonder at all due to the decades of dumbing down education and turning public schools into indoctrination camps. I graduated High School in May of 1995, and am likely one of the last 3 or 4 graduating classes in Texas that actually learned history as it should be taught. I graduated with my Bachelor’s Degree in December 2010, and I can tell you, it was a struggle to not be taken in by the desire of most of the professors to turn people into liberal drones.

The evidence is in plain sight, as Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA) liked to say when he had no evidence, but this issue does. How long will it be until they openly demand total obedience, all rights gone, and no more elections, they just rule? I hope sincerely that I don’t see it in my life, or my nephew in his, but that day is coming. And when it does, millions upon millions of Americans will fight back, the only question then will be, who wins?

The series begins

For those who subscribe on YouTube, you’ll know I’ve been talking about a series dedicated to American History, but being me, I want to ensure I prepare. I also lost all of my notes about a while back, so I had to start over. Well, the first video is live tomorrow at 10, the 16th of June, the rest will post, for now, every Wednesday at 10. The first two are the basics of where everything began that led to the US, then it will slow down a bit as the topics become more detailed.

Enjoy!

History is being destroyed

Whether by accident or malicious design, the history Cathedral at Notre Dame is slowly crumbling in Paris. Many are posting about how the fire is due to a renovation accident, but I can tell you that this is too soon to say.

I’ve worked as a Firefighter, and there’s a reason an investigator goes in after the building is safe, no one can tell what causes a fire until after, and then only if they are specifically skilled in finding a cause. We’ve seen houses of worship vandalized for a long time in Europe, not coincidentally, since the “refugees” began pouring in, and very recently, a woman attempted to detonate a car bomb at Notre Dame.

Pray for those fighting this fire, for those who live and/or work near it, and just for all involved.

A change to Smoke Signals

While I don’t know how many people regularly read what I post here, I am moving away from this format as I have begun posting to YouTube. The format is very similar, just a change from typing things out here to sitting in front of a camera and talking.

Personally, I prefer the new method, as it is closer to teaching, which I have done in the past, as I studied for several years to become a teacher before I found I am not likely to get that job as I don’t also coach, but that’s something I’ve spoken about already.

So, if you want to continue with me, although I will still post here from time to time, you can find me here, I look forward to seeing you there.

Be careful speaking for God

So, while I don’t use Facebook any more, other than having an account for things like Poker apps or the like, I do have an account, and saw this earlier today.

Naturally, I went back to Bible study as a child, then teen, then adult, and thought about the story of Christ feeding the multitude, and they were not “migrants.” The multitude were citizens of Judea, either Jews living in Israel, or other Roman citizens of that province, and had been following Jesus for a while, as he was teaching and ministering to them. At this point, though, Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, John the Baptist.

Matthew 14:1 is the beginning, where we learn that Herod the Tetrarch had John in prison, and did not want to kill him for fear of making him a martyr or angering the locals, but one of his birthday guest’s daughter requested it after he promised her anything. “Give me here on a platter the head of John the Baptist.” (Matthew 14:8) so he did. When Christ learned of the death of his Cousin, he retreated for solitude, but the multitude followed him still. Eventually, the Disciples came to him and asked him to send them away to find food. Rather than doing so, Christ performed a miracle, feeding over 5000 with just 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish, once again showing the power of God, and the love of God in supplying food enough for all, and more.

Naturally, when I saw this, I was concerned about a Church misleading people, as there are many instances where Christ specifically made sure to obey the law, or where things we are told are immoral or wrong, and God is used to “prove that,” were specifically ordered in the Bible. Romans 13:1 “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.” Literally saying to obey the law of the land. I personally choose not to travel to countries where the law is contrary to God’s divine laws, so that I am no subject to those laws at any point in my life. If that comes to Texas, I will follow God’s law.

Now, seeing this, I knew I couldn’t just comment and walk away, as this is a Man of God either purposely spreading this message, or at the very least, allowing someone else to use his Church sign to spread it, so I contacted him with my concerns. Matthew 18:15 tells us that we are to confront each other, and to spread this message, where they claim Christ would violate border laws, when that is not true, is lying, and thus, a sin. I didn’t get angry, I simply voiced my side of the debate, and I pray it will be resolved well, but I can’t control anyone but me.

Naturally, there are many people who still claim Christ would be opposed to the current President’s aim of building a wall on the southern border of the US, but that ignores Nehemiah 3, where Nehemiah is specifically ordered to start the reconstruction of Israel by rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. This is also specifically stated as being for the purpose of protecting the Israeli people.

So at this point the question is a very simple one, do you believe the Bible is God’s word or not. If so, then you must know that the commandments are his commandments, be those the Ten Commandments given to Moses, or those given by Christ to his Disciples. I’ll be the first to admit I backslide (ask my Mother, she’ll tell you that’s true), and that is why, when someone gets upset with me for calling something a sin, I remind them that I am a sinner too, and all they need to do is repent, ask forgiveness, and work to not sin again. None of us are perfect, and none of us will be this side of Heaven, but we can work to be a proper example of Christ while we are here, and that is what we should be doing.

I will support helping those who need help all day long, but when those people have literally marched through multiple countries, with those countries offering jobs, asylum, work visas, and more, only to say “nope, America must obey me,” those are invaders, nothing more. They chose to march to the border of a sovereign nation, to then order said nation to allow them to break the laws of that nation, and now citizens of the US are even joining them in their cries to just ignore our laws. I don’t agree with Mexico keeping Doctors Without Borders from helping, as long as DWB followed the rules in getting to the locations in question, and so on. I don’t have any trouble with Americans sending food, clothing, and more to the people now waiting as their cases are decided. I do, however, have a large bone of contention with those spreading lies. Children are not “ripped from the mother’s arms” at any point. They cannot be housed with adults, and that’s it. They are cared for, fed better than possibly any other time in their lives, and when all is said and done, they’re returned to their parents. Many, though, aren’t coming with their parents, but with strangers who are using them.

The girl in the photo above, rather than as portrayed, crying due to being alone, had been kidnapped weeks earlier by her mother, and dragged from Honduras to the US border. At no time was she separated from her mother, until she was reunited with her father, yet Time Magazine decided to get political, and spread bald faced lies about the situation. This led to protests, and more, and even now that the truth is known, it’s kept quiet as Time doesn’t want to have actually admit their lie was discovered. I personally want a society where, when a news publication/organization is found to have lied, they must give the same amount of coverage/space to their correction, such as time having to do something like this.

If they had to do this every time they were caught lying, sure, we’d see fewer and fewer stories every day, but we’d get real news again, very worth it if you ask me.

Well, my rant has gone on long enough, what do you think about all of this?

A discussion got me thinking

Just a short while ago, I began commenting on a thread about survival prepping. Now, I know you’re thinking ‘Oh great, a prepper post’ but that’s not what this is. By no definition of the word am I a ‘prepper,’ but I’m also not so naive to think nothing will ever happen to drive me away from my home. From natural disasters to EMP weapons to nuclear strike, there are any number of reasons you may be unable to live as you’re accustomed to now for even a short period of time, and that means you could suffer horribly, or just be inconvenienced, based on being prepared for it.

Now, as I said, I am by no means ‘a prepper,’ but I do know a good deal about many topics, many of them easily translatable into off grid living. The big question you want to ask yourself when considering if you could survive in an emergency situation, is what will you need to do so. The simple answers to that question are:

Food, water, shelter, heating or cooling depending on climate, medical supplies, defensive weapons, hunting/fishing supplies, just to name a few items.

These are, by no means, the only things you’ll need, but it’s a start. Think about what your auto emergency kits at Walmart or Target have in them. Flares, a thermal blanket, bandages, etc. All great things, as flares can signal people looking for you, start a fire, or even drive off predators, since wolves or bears generally don’t like fire. Add some paracord, which is almost universally 500lb test, a solar mirror, water purification straw or tablets, fish hooks, a good knife, and you’re well on your way to ensuring you’re warm, mostly dry, fed and hydrated for a long as you can be.

Some of my friends have also suggested a solar USB charger, as in all but an EMP attack, your phone could be invaluable, as it can generally find you on a map, and give directions, or just make a call that might be triangulated to find you. Naturally, in a situation like the movie Red Dawn, you’re going to want to hide and never be found, but as that’s likely such a long shot as to be laughable, it’s not a bad idea. Not to mention, if you’re traveling with small children, just having some music at night can help too.

The point of all of this is very simple, look at your environment, I’m in north Texas, someone in Colorado will need very different supplies, as would someone in Alaska. Look at where you would go in an emergency, what will you need there. What do you already know how to do and what don’t you. Once you know these things, you can add to your supplies and learn skills you need but haven’t mastered yet. Learn CPR, how to apply a tourniquet or otherwise stop bleeding, how to recognize what not to touch or eat, and so on. Even if nothing ever happens, if your water is poisoned like we saw in Michigan, you have something on hand to use. If your friend falls and gashes their leg at a park, you know how to react as someone also calls 911.

The simple message, prepare for the worst, and pray for the best, is one that isn’t a sign of paranoia to live by. You keep a spare tire or a can of Fix a Flat in your car, right? I know people who hide a $20 bill in their car, so if they run out of gas, they have money. They may never use it, but it’s there, and peace of mind is a good thing. All of this said, I am not an expert by any means. I can trap/hunt/fish and cook what I kill, I can find make a sling or stretcher if needed, I can even fight off predators, including other people, to protect myself and my family, and I know that I don’t know all I need, so I look for books and classes, and listen to others.

What would you include in a bugout bag that isn’t a firearm or ammunition? What would you put into an emergency bag that isn’t listed here?

The Blame Game

For just over two years, we’ve heard nothing but cries of despair every time Congress or the President do anything. Liberals demand that this official or that be impeached, or that they recuse themselves from this or that, or in some other way, obey the party that lost the 2016 election. This is, however, not a new phenomenon. The 2000 election saw many similar things, with Democrats asking why George W Bush wasn’t appointing more Democrats to his cabinet to “keep an eye on him.” The question really, for me, is why we must obey only one party, no matter how the election goes? The answer, surprisingly, is actually fairly simple, entitlement. For just over twenty years, the idea of hard work and earning something has been under assault and we’re very close to a time when people will openly call for someone’s arrest, or defend their act of murder, because someone “denied their right” to be given money without working. Personally, I’ve been waiting to hear about one of the “protesters” in an “anti-fascist” group defending their killing of a conservative because they were “a bot” or “assaulted them” by speaking.
The mid 1990’s is where we see the shift begin that has led us to this point. Students prior to this time were told they must work hard, must study, and if they don’t they will fail and more. Now, students were never told they’d failed, they were just told “you did your best,” or later that it’s “their truth” and they should embrace it. And today, we have high school graduates who truly believe they have rights others do not, and rights others exercise which they don’t like can “just be changed” because they want to. Look again to 2016, and the multiple calls for the Electoral College to “just be done away with,” then the reactions when they were told it would take a Constitutional Amendment, which is not likely to happen. I personally was told more than once that I should be put in jail for hate speech when I told people they can’t “just change” the Constitution. I’ve been told people would come shoot me with my own pistol for not demonizing the NRA, and even had one lie and say I’d threatened him when I reported his threat to my life to the Police. I used to pity these people, now I just ignore them, but they still exist, and are causing more harm than good to society.

I personally don’t care what you do with your life, at least not until your life starts to negatively impact mine. Look at the movement for “LGBTQ rights,” and look specifically at the “rights” they say they are being denied. Your rights are not specific to one group, they are for all American citizens, or at least were. I remember signs in multiple businesses where I grew up that said “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone, at any time, with or without explanation” and no one batted an eye, yet today we’re told that you can’t refuse to serve certain groups, while business owners in those groups go on vulgar tirades and forcibly eject others from their businesses, and nothing happens. A baker, who did not refuse to sell, just to make a special order, was all but destroyed until a court finally ruled that special orders are not protected by anything, while a coffee shop owner, who was not asked to do anything special, chases Christians out of his business while spewing profanities, and nothing happens. Why? Because those in power in Washington at the time want to destroy certain actual rights, and use “rights” that don’t exist to do it, playing The Blame Game the entire time. You hear that it’s the Church’s fault that a homosexual was denied a job, not their total lack of qualifications. Others scream it’s the NRA’s fault that a criminal broke multiple laws and shot people, not the criminal who broke multiple laws. You hear it’s the evil AR-15 that caused a mass shooting, not the person using it, but you never hear about pistol or shotgun control needed, because the goal is the eventual disarming of Americans, and those doing it know they must have a scapegoat to start the ball rolling, and they’ve chose the AR-15 for that role.

It’s all very simple, they know they can’t come right out and say “ban all Christian churches” or “give up all of your guns,” as they know they’d be laughed off the stage then removed from office. If, however, they spend years demonizing what they hate, they can slowly turn a country against it as well, and then people will vote to oppress others. Tim Tebow knelt after a scoring drive to thank God as per his faith, and was all but beaten with clubs as he ran from the field to resign, but Colin Kaepernick kneels to “protest oppression” while making millions, and people cheer. Why is it OK to protest “oppression” he can’t prove, but not for someone to openly exercise their actual First Amendment rights? The answer is simple, praying shows Christians believe in a higher power than politicians, “protesting” allows politicians to become a “higher power” and “fight for equality” as they strip rights from all they can.

The only question left is where this will all end. Given their way, many politicians would have Americans taxed at levels that would make past socialist tyrants gasp in envy, to pay for “health care” that won’t work, and standing in line to hopefully get some food for the day, rather than spending their earnings as they wish. Orwell warned of a society like this in 1984, and despite his and others’ warnings, we are in a jet powered handcart to the hell they described. We’re still roughly split 50/50, with half of the country still fighting against an Orwellian state, but we’re just at a stalemate, and sadly, losing people faster than those we’re fighting to stop. Will you go quietly into the dark of Orwellian control, or will you stand and say, as Patrick Henry did so many years ago, Give me liberty or give me death? I know which I choose.

Tuesday thoughts

First off, for anyone who follows me on Twitter, you’ll have seen me say I was “literally almost repeating ‘I’m not allowed to think for you’ already” earlier. If you follow me or just check in from time to time, you’ll have guessed I work directly with clients/customers, and have for most of my working life, but something has changed. When I was in High School, and just after that, we didn’t get many, if any, “I want to talk to the manager” moments, or people saying stuff like “I’ll have you fired” or the like. Now, it’s almost daily I have someone say I was rude or unhelpful for not doing their work for them, or not being magical and just able to “make it work.” I’ve discussed this more than once, and I see the reason for this as being the coddling in education since the mid-late 1990’s. Growing up if I didn’t do my homework, my teacher called my parents and they all tried to enforce the idea that I would fail and be held back if I didn’t. No test I took, save the SAT for some reason, gave any points for just putting my name on the test. I had a teacher who gave a test where the points didn’t total 100 because there were an odd number that wouldn’t work out any way she tried. Today, students would argue they “have a right” to the points that can’t be earned by a question, but just over 20 years ago, the teacher flat out told the class “you only get the points that are missing, if you get every question right.” Basically, saying you have to get 100% to get 100%, and nobody complained, well not much anyway. Today we have students demanding free A’s or other special treatment because the teacher won’t let them goof off, saying they’re “being stifled” by being told to pay attention and do the work!

Unfortunately, this has now led us to where we have an entire generation raised on “everyone’s just as good as everyone else” or “nobody fails, you just succeed differently,” which are great messages for toddlers and Kindergarten students, where almost everything taught in school is socialization. Three to five year olds just need to learn to sit still, to interact with others politely, to mind someone who isn’t their parent, they aren’t learning much beyond that. Math class is about recognizing numbers, geometry about knowing a square from a triangle, and so on and so forth. Hell, that’s how it was when I was in Kindergarten, thirty six years ago! That’s why many schools still only do most Kindergarten classes as half day classes. They know that five year olds aren’t ready for all day at a desk and such, they’re only there to learn how to learn, not much else. First through about third or fourth grade are similar, just lessening in the similarity as the children grow. You start with simple math and such, adding on subtraction, multiplication, division, as you grow. You don’t get into reading much more than Good Night Moon until you’ve mastered a simple sentence, you don’t learn cursive writing until you’re able to write in block letters legibly, or at least that’s how it was. Today, we could all communicate in only cursive and we’d have adults unable to tell what we were saying! Those are the people demanding their “right” to this or that, and reacting as if slapped when asked why they have a right to something that no one else has a right to.

The very people who were rarely or never told no are the very people who will keep saying “I told you, I’m getting an error” and then say you’re rude when you finally snap and say “I am sorry, but I cannot just go on “getting an error,” I need to know what the error is and what you’re trying to do when you get it.” Or the people who say you lied when you tell them that a “same day” service means within 24 hours, not a calendar day, when they complain that they ordered same day service at 2358 and at 0001 it wasn’t done. We are at a crossroads, with one path continuing on the road of “nobody is ever wrong, it’s just their truth” and ultimate doom, and the other, more difficult, path being one where we force people to accept that “their truth” is not the truth, that they cannot demand the world cater to them, and that when they don’t get their way, crying and throwing fits will only land them in trouble. That path includes arresting hundreds when they riot because their candidate lost, or a group invites someone to a private function. It includes charging and prosecuting people who destroy public property or harass people because they weren’t given special treatment. And it definitely includes forcibly educating these adults as to how wrong they are on many things.

That image was, by all reports, shown at the end of a recent Big Bang Theory episode for less than 3 seconds. Chuck Lorre is known for putting something at the end of his shows, but until now, nothing as partisan or almost violent as this. In this one, Lorre all but orders God to kill all who don’t vote Democrat. This is, honestly, a bit tame by comparison, as other celebrities have actually called for violence and even murder, but it’s just more of the same from ultra liberal Hollywood. The very people who denigrate and mock people of faith for their faith, later demand God obey them and harm those they call crazy for having faith. Even in the part of that message where Lorre appears to say “If you choose to let the GOP win” he uses language you would use with a small child like saying “if you want to be a bad boy/girl and not clean your room…” as if to say he knows best and God must do as he says to.

This will, also, have a detrimental affect on the show, and those working on it, rather than just putting their name on it. Granted, from what I know, the actors, and likely most of the staff, are also very liberal, but that’s beside the point. Like ABC firing Roseanne Barr and then killing her character in the new show, people decided they would never watch again, and ABC only grudgingly admitted that it was their choice that led to this. Big Bang Theory will see the same, to some extent, as people who once watched every time it was on, now decide they won’t watch something made by a man who hates them to the core. We’ve seen this everywhere for more than two years now. Kaepernick starts kneeling during the national anthem, and viewership and ticket sales for that team, then the NFL as a whole, go way down. Starbucks announces that anyone can use either restroom, that they’ll hire “refugees” over Veterans, and that their bathrooms are, for all intents and purposes, open to homeless addicts to use to shoot up in, and their sales go down. Denny’s and Target announce that anyone who has a license to carry a firearm isn’t welcome and sales plummet. Target and Starbucks have cancelled expansion plans, while companies like Black Rifle Coffee can’t keep things in stock after people heard their philosophy of preferring to hire Veterans, and not hiring those not legally allowed to work in the country. Small, local businesses saw sales rise as chains saw the opposite, although Chick-Fil-A bucks the trend, and despite repeated demands from one liberal or another for a boycott, for the company to be wiped from the Earth, they rake in record profits due to superior food, service, and a philosophy of treating everyone the same.

Finally, the latest outrage, President Trump has hinted he may address “birthright citizenship” via Executive Order. For those who don’t know, the 14th Amendment, ratified on 9 July 1868, states “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any peson of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” It goes on to address representation and other topics, but that is what is being discussed. Naturally, we have people saying that anyone here is “subject to the jurisdiction” but that isn’t true. Being “subject to the jurisdiction” is not being held responsible under the law for your actions, it’s actually more in line with “being a subject of” such as citizens of Britain are “subjects of the Monarchy.” The United States is literally the only country on the planet where someone born of non citizens is automatically a citizen because of where they are born. Others are using dual citizenship to suggest birthright citizenship is commonplace, but ignoring that to be a dual citizen (which the US requires you to choose from at the age of 18, as non-citizens may not serve in the military or vote,) requires your parents to be citizens of the respective countries.

The 14th Amendment though, was not written to address everyone born within our borders though, but to address the newly freed slaves. Democrats at the time had already succeeded in their “separate but equal” BS, and their 3/5ths Vote idiocy, but they weren’t satisfied. They were arguing that children of slaves weren’t citizens by right, as they didn’t want them voting when they came of age, but the amendment settled it, to the dismay of the Democrats then and now, albeit for different reasons. You see, the Democrats today are watching as person after person abandons their party of hate, racism, and control, so they must replace them. Sadly, they see this and don’t think “why are they leaving, what can we do to keep them happy?” Rather, they think “they can’t leave, we have a right to rule,” and now demand that anyone and everyone be allowed to enter the country, draw benefits they’ve never contributed to funding, and vote. It’s a very simple situation, people are literally storming to our border, ignoring our Embassies and Consulates, where they should be going if they are truly seeking asylum, while demanding we “just let them in.” We know that there are mostly men in the group, not “women and children fleeing oppression,” we know that terrorists and other criminals have been found and shown to be in the group, and we know that they are not “fleeing oppression” as if they were truly oppressed in Honduras, they’d not have been allowed to just walk out. With President Trump’s move to send the Military to the border and to address birthright citizenship, the DNC is showing it’s true colors, those being that they demand obedience and subservience.

So, the ultimate question of the day is fairly simple, are you a servant or a citizen? Will you continue to support people who pray for your death, who order you to welcome those who will harm you in many ways, and who openly call you horrible and evil? Or, will you stand up and tell them you will not be ruled, you will not be controlled, and you will not give power to those who do not deserve it? Every citizen must vote for the Republic to survive, and while I will tell you I voted all GOP this election, I know I cannot force you to vote one way or the other. I can only tell you that Democrats have openly stated that, if given control of Congress, they will raise your taxes, overthrow the President by any means, open our borders to the world, and far more aimed at total control over all they can. So, it’s a vote for freedom or oppression, I know which I choose, and I will die on my feet before living on my knees.

No, you don’t have that right

How many of you have been told “Oh, we are having this conversation” or heard “how dare you” recently? Every day I see a post, see a video, or just hear someone near me utterly shocked that someone wouldn’t do what they want them to. I’m sure you’ve seen me say it, or just guessed, but the vast majority of my work experience in the last 26 years is in customer service of some sort, and TRUST ME, even in 1992, the world was barreling toward what we have today. Imagine the following scenarios/conversations and see if you can guess how they ended:

1 – Hotel front desk receives a call about a drunk causing trouble in the hotel bar from the off duty law enforcement officer providing convention security. Agent confirms the drunk is a guest, so the cop just takes the drunk to their room to sleep it off rather than ticket/arrest them. Next morning, this guest assaults the front desk when told they will not give the cop’s name, then it’s found the guest destroyed over $2000 worth of property in the room.

2 – Support rep receives a report of an error, must ask for the error 10 times before they’re told what the error is. They advise the customer it will take a few minutes to research, during which the customer repeats, almost without stopping to breathe, “I need an answer, why aren’t you helping me, what are you doing, I need this fixed, you’re just stalling, I’m going to report you” and more. After about 5 minutes, the agent states they have found the cause and gives step by step, literally mouse click by mouse click, instructions on how to resolve the issue. The customer then repeats, more than 10 times, “but I need this fixed” until the agent says, (verbatim) “I am sorry if I was not clear, but I have tested this and I am just not allowed to edit your data, you just need to use the steps I gave above and it will fix your issue

3 – Waiter takes food to a table, and is told that it’s not correct. The waiter asks what isn’t correct, only to be told “You know damn well what isn’t correct, now fix it.” Waiter is flustered as it’s not their table, so they didn’t take the order, they just delivered the food, and the manager can see this and comes over. Guest again say “this idiot knows good and damn well what he screwed up and won’t fix it.” The Manager, angrily, states that the waiter standing there red faced did not take their order, but rather a young woman, who is a foot shorter and blonde, did, so they should apologize or leave.

So, what do you think the responses were to each of these?

1 – The drunk actually sued the hotel for “allowing him to be beaten up” then tried to say he didn’t agree to video from security cameras being shown in court. The judge overruled his objection, and he lost.

2 – Customer complained about “rude” rep, only to demand the CEO of the company when told “I’ve listened to the call and you had to be asked multiple times for the error, you then berated the agent as they were testing, which they told you would take a few minutes, you then ignored direct instructions on how to resolve your issue.” That manager then advised the agent to hang up on that person if they get them again.

3 – Waiter was reported for racism, and HR actually sided with the guest saying “you could have explained you didn’t take their order a bit more gently” and didn’t understand when asked “how is saying, I’m very sorry, but I wasn’t the server that took your order, I’ll be happy to fix any issues you can point out.”

So, can you still say, for certain, we aren’t headed for a society where just breathing within 100 yards of someone can offend them and get you arrested, or shot?

Let’s try to simplify something

You live in a very dangerous part of a very large city. In your area, there are two very active groups of people, each claiming they were the first to arrive in your city. Group A, while not passive in any way, has yet to instigate a fight, while Group B will start a fight, then when retaliation comes, they scream about innocents they specifically staged. After a while, Group B is recruited by a third party that hates Group A for some reason, and together, they wipe out more than 50% of Group A and anyone who associates with them minimally, until Groups B and C are finally stopped. The Government (City, State and National,) in response to this, officially declare a new city is formed with Group A given leadership. They decide that, rather than always fighting throughout the city, they’re going to work to fortify the city limits borders, only to have Group B constantly attack those borders, lobbing grenades at city civic centers, working to kill everyone they can.

Eventually, the city is celebrating a milestone anniversary, and Group B decides to start lobbing grenades again, but the Police are staged and ready, and stops their attacks. Following this, it’s revealed the people throwing hand grenades over fences had brought children with them and those children were hurt by the Police responding to Group B trying to blow up homes and city buildings.

In an ultra simple form, this is exactly what happened yesterday. The Israeli people have, for centuries, claimed Israel as their home. The surrounding countries, the majority of citizens being Muslim, do not dispute that both lines are descended from Abraham. The Israelis, citing historical documents, show that Abraham left all he had, land, money, etc, to Isaac, his second child and only child by his wife. Ishmael was born to a servant, and later cast out, but they claim simply because Ishmael was older, Abraham’s wishes must be disregarded.

In the 1930’s and 1940’s, many Muslim countries sided with Nazi Germany and helped kill as many Jewish people as possible. When Hitler was defeated in 1945, the U.N. gave the land now known as Israel to the Jewish people to form a nation, and instantly, Israel fell under attack by people demanding the Jews give up their homes, and ultimately, their lives. This, to me, shows two types of delusional attitude. First, the people demanding Israel be utterly destroyed and all Jews killed, not only actively deny that the Holocaust happened, but also that their ancestors didn’t take part in it. On the other side of the coin, the very people crying over “innocent protesters” being harmed when the IDF responds to attacks by those “protesters” are the same ones who demand the U.N. be obeyed without question, yet when told the U.N. created Israel and now those who are attacking Israel are defying the U.N.’s orders for Israel to be created 70 years go, just shake their heads and demand Israel give up everything because they don’t like them.

In short, above you see the modern liberal, someone who can demand an un-elected and un-accountable body be obeyed, then demand that body was wrong 70 years ago and now should not be obeyed, but only in part. These are the same people who demand that charity is something people should do more, but who fight tax cuts because “people aren’t charitable, so the government must be,” yet pointing out that being taxed to the point I can barely feed my family means I can’t be charitable only gets a dirty look as if to say “so what, you’re evil, starve and give away what little you have.”

The unspoken truth is very simple, the very people screaming about tolerance, diversity, and inclusiveness, are the ones who are the most intolerant, non-diverse, and who will exclude all who don’t praise them 24/7. So the question is this, and it’s very simple, do you stand with a country that stopped a violent terror attack, or with the terrorists who attacked? Are you a liberal, or do you recognize that you can’t reason with terrorists or criminals, and letting them have their way by disarming and removing protections, only creates more victims.

Netanyahu said it best – If Palestine laid down their weapons today, there would be peace. If Israel laid down their weapons today, there would be no Israel.

Millionth verse, same as the first

I thought I’d seen the height of lunacy possible from liberals, only to be proven very wrong today, by two different law enforcement agencies. First, in Great Britain, parents are begging a hospital to allow them to take their child to seek treatment elsewhere, only to have a judge order them to watch their child die, and Police are actually enforcing that order. On top of that, they are actually telling people social media posts about this situation may be investigated. Not only did a sitting judge, who was told that treatment at an Italian hospital stands a good chance of helping the child, tell parents they must watch their child die, but Police are actually enforcing that order.

Move to Parkland Florida, where Kyle Kashuv was taken from class, to a closed room, and questioned by multiple Resource Officers and at least one school administrator, as to why he went with his father to a firing range and posted about it on social media. No laws were broken, no school rules were broken, no one was threatened, and simply put a father took his son to the range to instruct him on firearms use, something millions upon millions of fathers have done for decades. This school, however, decided that since the media made their anti-second amendment screamer their darling, they would try to intimidate this student into silence. That’s strike one, but they did this without informing the student’s parents or letting them be involved. That’s strike two, and strike three is the laughably inept report file, where the officer cannot articulate much, or spell correctly, as if this was an official report, legitimizing the possible charges the family can now press against the school and Sheriff’s Office.

On top of the horrible actions taken by the school and law enforcement, people are still criticizing this student for going to the range with his Father, and actually saying they “don’t care about his rights” or that his actions were legal. We have people actually arguing that we should give up rights because people might not like us exercising our rights. We have people saying “oh don’t do that, it’ll offend me” as if that’s a legitimate reason to order someone to change their life! I was about 8 or 9 and wanted to shave my head for the summer, as my hair is VERY THICK, meaning if I don’t shampoo with strong dandruff shampoo twice a day, sneezing looks like a blizzard. The day I got my head shaved, a lady from our church wrote me a letter that was many pages long, telling me I shouldn’t have done that. She is not related to me, and I wasn’t really close to either of her kids, but she felt it was OK to tell me I shouldn’t have done what I did, because she didn’t like it. This was 25+ years ago, today it’s only gotten worse, as we have people calling the police on people because they “feel threatened” by a t-shirt’s message or something equally asinine.

This is the problem today, we have an entire segment of society so assured of their infallibility that they will all but stake you to the beach at high tide to silence you when you point out their idiocy. I’ve been told I need to learn more when I pointed out, rightly, that Hogg’s ranting and screaming “speech” at the march for disarming Americans, was almost a direct copy of the mannerisms and speech style of Adolf Hitler, with of course the #BanAssaultWeapons hashtag thrown in. When I then demanded that “assault weapon” be defined, I was ridiculed, as if it clearly is and should have my home raided by the Marines to protect my neighbors. To be perfectly clear, the AR-15 platform weapons are not assault weapons. This is for a very good reason, there is no single design/configuration of an AR-15. I’ve seen them use rifle and pistol caliber rounds, with and without rails, different length barrels, and so many other things, that saying to ban the AR platform is demanding multiple different weapons be made illegal, simply because it “looks scary.”

We are at a tipping point and if we don’t step back, we will lose everything, and that loss will be after a bloody conflict. The Founders were extremely intelligent in how they framed our Constitution. Freedom of Speech, at the time, was who could hear you, quill and ink on parchment, or very rudimentary printing presses. Arms at the time were mostly flint lock muskets, but repeating rifles and even crew served automatic weapons were available, and the word used specifically was to ensure that future politicians couldn’t say “that’s not arms, give it up” yet we have people demanding we do just that.

Simply put, criminals will never stop because something is illegal, laws are in place to stop those who respect law and order from doing things contrary to the good of a free society, and to provide a framework to use for deciding how to punish those who break the law. Using a firearm to commit a crime cannot be stopped by making more and more things illegal. If all firearms are made illegal, criminals will still have them and their victims will be far easier to control while committing their crimes. We need to do several things, first we need to stop the jump to “ban this or that” when a criminal misuses a tool. Toronto saw a terrorist purposely drive into civilians, killing people using a motor vehicle, should be ban assault vehicles? Knives are the dominant weapon at the moment in London, and their mayor has actually made possession of a knife outside your home a crime, to the point you must not only show you purchased new cutlery for your home that day, but explain why you did! Criminals are rolling around laughing as they watch government officials make things easier and easier for them, and until we kick the useless idiots out of Congress, put people in their place who will work for us, this will only get worse.

Check out www.cosaction.com and sign the petition to call for an Article V Convention of States, as we need Term Limits, Fiscal Responsibility, and to protect our Constitutional Rights, and we know Congress won’t do any of those things.

Will you take the Red Pill, or the Blue Pill?

England, 1932, Aldous Huxley’s book, Brave New World, was first published, showing the world a future where freedom was a drug induced daydream, and humans little more than a science experiment.  Engineered in laboratories, each caste was perfectly created for the job they would hold in society, from the Alphas who ran the offices and reported only to Controllers, to the Beta, Gamma and Epsilon castes, who never questioned why their lot in life was merely to serve those above them.  In a reverse of Hitler’s dream of eugenics, humans were no longer terminated for defects, rather defects were carefully controlled, so as to keep the lower castes in their place.  The traditional family unit demonized so far that the words Mother and Father were tantamount to the worst swear words known to mankind.

After being decanted, the children were subjected to social conditioning to ensure they would not buck the system.  Toddlers were shown beautiful flowers or colorful books, only to be shocked when they reached for them, reinforcing the idea that these things were evil and to be shunned.  From the earliest age possible, lessons would be spoken to them as they slept, enforcing the idea that they loved their caste, that they would be miserable in a higher, or any other, caste, so as to ensure they would never try to break the mold, resulting in a world where, despite the tyrannical rule, people truly believed they were free, and were happy.  Savages existed still, however, on reservations, where men and women would have children the traditional way, raising them as a family, teaching them morality and values from their religions, only to be shunned by the civilized people.

Scotland, 1945, the second World War would end this year, and Animal Farm would show a vision from Orwell, of what might have been had the Axis powers not fallen.  Farm animals, left by the farmer to fend for themselves, form a society and begin to take on roles they had never held before.  At first, all worked, all were fed equally, all were housed and allowed to live equally, but it would not last.  The pigs, representing the ruling elite, would soon come to author more and more rules, which on paper would hold all animals equal, but as seen in socialist and communist countries time and time again, they would not feel obligated to follow their own rules.  By the end, the one rule stated All Animals are Equal, Some Animals are More Equal than Others, with the pigs ultimately facing the farmers on their return, both stunned, while the other animals languished and died under the tyrant rule of the pigs who took control in the vacuum.

Scotland, 1949, George Orwell, in failing health, finished and published 1984, another cautionary tale, but on the opposite end of the spectrum.  Rather than people controlled by drugs and endless distractions, Orwell’s future saw them controlled by a brutal tyrant regime.  Slogans like War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, Ignorance is Strength, would reinforce that mankind was always meant to serve the powerful, either by choice or by subjugation.  Children encouraged to inform on family if they broke even the slightest rule, police free to do as they pleased, regardless of any law or infraction, government officials free from all laws they passed to control the masses.  Brutal rule to ensure society, and the status quo, continued without change, without those in power ever having to fear they would lose their power.

Prior to any of these works being published, 1929 saw the crash of Wall Street, and the beginning of a depression the world had not seen the likes of.  Having just taken office, Herbert Hoover would watch as men who had fought in World War I, and now were out of work only a short time later, would set up tent cities, or Hoovervilles, Americans left their homes to go west seeking work, some finding pay of a penny or less for a task, while their families held together as best they could.  Movies such as The Grapes of Wrath showing children begging total strangers for even a spoonful of their evening meal, would tattoo on the mind and consciousness of Americans just how bad things were, and could be again without care being taken.

1933 saw the inauguration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and would herald a change in the United States, moving toward the end of the days of hunger.  Over the course of his first year in office, FDR would oversee the creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps, the Civil Works Administration, banking regulation changes, and ultimately, the change in direction which would have the U.S. start back to where she was just after World War I.  Men would find work paying far more than any job in the last 4 years, industry would start to return and revitalize cities, families no longer worried that they would not eat for more than a day, but at what cost.  The expansion of government in that year saw control move to a level never seen in the U.S. before.  Government, either Federal or State, would employ more people than ever before, some given menial tasks just to have a job, while others would provide services badly needed, such as building roads, or repairing other infrastructure.

Just two years later, 1935 would witness the penultimate rise to power of Adolf Hitler in Germany, starting with Universal Firearms Registration.  His regime would boast that health care was available to more people than ever before, habits like smoking were now illegal, education was growing, and towns were safer for his work.  The world, having only two decades earlier fought a bloody war, watched as they saw the country they’d been fighting began to rally back, not seeing all of the signs that war would be at their door again very soon.  Under FDR, the U.S. trundled along, happily watching as men went back to work, industries thought gone once again started to boom and, ultimately, they believed the world was on a path to peace and prosperity.

The experiment with Prohibition showed the Government that the common man would not be overtly controlled so easily, but this showed them not only that they couldn’t seize total control, but rather that control needed to be stealthy and subtle to work.  By 1939, Germany had left the League of Nations, treaties had been broken, new treaties signed, and on September 1, 1939, Germany invades Poland, their path through Belgium drawing Great Britain into the war.  Roosevelt, knowing the American people were still very close to a bloody war, remained an isolationist, watching as Europe and Asia descended into the hell that is open warfare.  By 1940, Roosevelt would send war goods to Britain, but remained steadfast in his stance that America would not fight in this war, holding that position until December 7, 1941, when Japan would attack Pearl Harbor, resulting in the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and World War 2 officially starting for the United States.

June 1944 saw the invasion of France on D-Day, with Utah and Omaha beaches the focal point of the world’s attention, and 1945 would see the end of fighting in Europe, with France liberated, and Germany once again, sanctioned for their part in a world war.  Post War Europe, unlike after World War I, saw Germany divided into two nations, East Germany ruled by the Soviet Union, and West Germany, a mostly free state under mostly self rule, with the United Nations, the replacement for the League of Nations, watching both new nations very closely.  Hitler, having worked as hard as he did to eliminate Europeans of Jewish descent, also saw something the world had not seen in some time, the Nation of Israel officially recognized in 1948, something which would cause strife for decades.  The 1950’s saw the Korean War escalate, the 1960’s and early 1970’s the Vietnam Conflict, the 1980’s Grenada, the 1990’s Desert Storm, in 2001 the destruction of the World Trade Center would see war return to the Middle East, where it would continue to the current day as of this writing.

Another change, though, was society at home during the 1950’s and 1960’s.  During World War I, women took on new roles while men were drafted or volunteered for the Military, just as in World War II, only to return home to their families, or to other careers, when the war ended and the returning men re-entered the work force.  The change, would begin here.  Children born too early for World War II and some too late for Korea’s draft, were now able to watch in more detail, starting with photos in newspapers and magazines, then on Television in the latter part of the 1950’s and again in the 1960’s with Vietnam.  War had been an abstract, only those who had a loved one return in a pine box, or grievously injured, knowing the true cost so many paid.

December of 1955, in Montgomery Alabama, saw a woman refuse to move seats on a bus, because a white passenger wanted her seat.  The powder keg of equal rights had been lit, by a woman who simply was tired of giving in.  Americans watched as laws proclaiming separate but equal were proven lies, as men and women who, solely based on skin color, were seen as second class citizens, said enough was enough, and soon, the movement would shake the country’s idea of equality to it’s core.  From Governor Wallace having to be moved by Federalized National Guardsmen, to allow a young black woman to enter a school, to protests led by the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior, to riots and protests resulting in use of force far beyond what had been seen before, Americans once again began to see the world in a new light.

Movements for equality, for peace when a tyrant rises, for better treatment of certain people, are not new to the world, just as they weren’t new in the 1950’s and 1960’s.  What was new in that time, was the media.  Radio was still not an old device in this era, but it was dominated by people taught to just read the news, not to comment and theorize.  The Who, What, When and Where, were all people got, the Why was for each listener to think on as an individual.  Hollywood had, for the most part, been the place of fantasy, of spaghetti westerns, and people were happy as they could escape for a time without being preached to about this cause of that, but this would soon change.  Other mediums were coming into their own, challenging the status quo, and setting the stage for a world unlike that which had been seen before.

1938, Action Comics launched something the world had never seen, a true super hero.  Superman, a child from another world, sent to Earth to survive his home planet’s destruction, had powers unlike anyone else.  Faster than a speeding bullet, stronger than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, the world saw a super hero rise to challenge evil in a way they never imagined.  1940 would se Captain Steven Rogers become Captain America, stepping onto the world stage to challenge Hitler, with his first cover in December 1940 showing him landing a blow to Hitler’s jaw, and side by side with Superman, launching young boys into the world of super heroes and daring do, where good would always triumph over evil, and justice would be served.   By the 1970’s the world of Comic Book Heroes would have expanded so far that heroes no longer worked alone, but in groups, to tackle larger and larger issues.  Villains and their henchmen were more dangerous, but again, good always won.

Alongside the comic book heroes, TV introduced new ideals as well.  Where the children of the 1950’s had Little Orphan Annie on the radio, Lassie or Flipper on TV, and a few comics, children in the 1970’s had the Dukes of Hazzard, professional wrestling, more soap operas than ever before, and something totally new to television, PBS, with offerings like Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers, or The Joy Of Painting, where you weren’t merely entertained, but educated as well.  Schoolhouse Rock showed how a bill becomes a law, and other lessons, The Electric Company used new techniques for their graphics, and just like that, a generation of children would no longer be outside until their parents dragged them into get washed up for supper, but who would plan their playtime to coincide with their must watch programs.

Mr. Rogers gave us a world of make believe, lessons taught in a gentle and kind way, even ensuring that a blind girl wouldn’t worry about his fish by making sure to say it was time to feed them each day.  Sesame Street showed a very diverse world, with monsters, garbage dwelling grouches, birds, and other creatures living and learning along side children and adults from all backgrounds.  So many new ideas brought into one medium that children were inundated with them by the time they started Kindergarten.  This generation would eventually learn of the Civil Rights movement, but rarely thought twice about what color their neighbor was, or why they weren’t in another class.  Rather, a new class of student to be segregated emerged, Special Education, those with learning disabilities on such a wide scale, were segregated, often taught so slowly that by the time they were to graduate High School, they might be at a middle school level of education.

Education had begun changing in the 1970’s, with a generation of children growing up watching war as never seen before, watching Hollywood celebrities protest violence, while their movies and TV shows glorified vigilantes and criminals, even seeing them side with the very people the U.S. Military was fighting, entered the education field and began to teach history, literature, and other subjects in ways that not only distorted, but blatantly re-wrote history.  The American Revolution was no longer a result of colonists wanting representation in how they were taxed, but because slave owning white men didn’t want to pay taxes, which of course ignores that the new nation taxed it’s new citizens.  Slavery was purely an American issue, where white men didn’t want to give up their free labor, meaning the roots of slavery, those being African tribes selling their neighbors to both profit and take their land, Europeans being the buyers, and that nations to this day still allow slavery, were ignored.

Students until this point had grown up with parents enforcing hard work pays off, removing privileges from students who were failing a subject so they had time to study, employers cutting hours when a student’s work began to flag, only to see a change happen, where teachers were encouraged by coaches and other extra-curricular sponsors to make sure students passed, so as not to hurt a source of income for the school.  By the time this came to light and schools stopped the practice, parents no longer held the student responsible, but questioned the teacher as to why they were failing their child.  Discipline had moved from a time when a disobedient student was paddled, only to have the parent repeat that punishment, to a time when the student was given time out, not only from their peers, but from the lessons.

Manipulation became a way of life at an early age, with boys complaining the lady teacher didn’t like boys, white teachers didn’t like minorities, coaches cut people for frivolous reasons, until we moved into a time when everyone makes the team, those who win too often are excluded to give everyone a chance, and the world again began to change.  In a move reminiscent of the 1940’s and 1950’s, books were removed for being too provocative, until books like To Kill A Mockingbird are removed for showing racism in the wrong way while books like Fifty Shades of Grey are sitting in public school libraries still.  Students are no longer exposed to the darker side of humanity’s past, and thus, no longer shown how mankind will rise to defeat tyrants and despots, resulting in students believing the very people who stood against tyranny were themselves tyrants.

Hollywood, naturally, began to change at this time as well.  In the 1980’s, a movie like Blue Thunder, where a scene shows a woman’s bare breasts for a few seconds, were rated R, and only grudgingly as opposed to X, or just not made.  Television programs which would discuss adult themes were closely regulated, news programs were careful in how they spoke of things, so as to ensure they were clean in the eyes of the FCC.  Just a decade later, and the 1990’s saw prime time programs on major networks, where all but the act of intercourse was shown.  Teenage characters were shown wearing less than most people would wear when swimming as every day attire, and romantically involved in relationships most adults remembered not knowing about until late in High School, or possibly college, and it only moved forward from there, to modern day entertainment, where sex sells, and people are shocked at how many of the celebrities they looked up to, who are now being shown to be predators that crowds would have formed mobs to hunt down only 20 or 30 years previously.

2016 will be remembered either as the year the world began to wake up to the programming we were all subject to for 40+ years, or the year the world fully took the blue pill, and stayed in Wonderland.  The election of Donald Trump, something the mainstream media said point blank was impossible, will be remembered either as the year Americans retook their power as The People, or as the year the United States gave up all freedom to tyrants.  Following this election, young people rioted in the streets, destroying property, because they could not force a country to undo an election and install someone who lost.  Others wailed in the streets, returning a year later to do so again, to protest.  States began enacting policies that only ten years ago would be so ludicrous as to oust all in power, protecting people who entered the country illegally, many who went on to commit heinous crimes.  Monuments to history, albeit a dark time in our history, were torn down by mobs who went unpunished, cities raced to remove others, to prevent just that from happening again, while many people begged for common sense, for us to not hide our history, but keep it so we may learn from it.  All of this leads directly to the situation facing the American People today.

February 2018 saw an active shooter situation in Parkland Florida, where Sheriff’s Deputies were ordered not to enter an engage, where S.W.A.T. Officers who defied those orders were fired, and all but that night, students were deputized by the mainstream media to demand Americans disarm.  Quotes like no one wants to face a shooter with an AR-15 were thrown around, while case after case from other parts of the country show people doing just that, and more.  Law Enforcement agencies all over the country decried the cowardly actions of the Deputies in Parkland, sitting outside while a shooter was in a school, which 28 years previously was made a gun free zone by a bill sponsored by then Senator Joseph Biden.  Suggestions that school districts allow those paying taxes to them to choose if teachers may choose to be armed are decried as forcing teachers who have no training to be armed, making things worse.  Districts which already allowed this, and thus are far safer, are ignored, or ridiculed.  The very people screaming about how evil the AR-15 is, who yell at Americans we don’t want to take your guns, are then seen marching demanding the repeal of the Second Amendment, carrying signs insulting gun owners, and others with signs blatantly saying they will pry them from your cold, dead hands.

We are at a tipping point, books/movies like Ready Player One show a world where people’s lives are so horrible they spend all the time they can in virtual reality, only to go into so much debt they literally become slaves until they die.  Where a corporation doesn’t flinch at killing hundreds to stop anyone from taking away their opportunity to lock in total control over society.  Movies like Equilibrium show a world where people are drugged to remove all emotion, where from a very early age they are indoctrinated to fear emotion so much they willingly take the required drugs, and those who don’t are killed.  Movie after movie after TV show after TV show shows us exactly what Huxley and Orwell warned us about all those decades ago, yet we seem to be pouring rocket fuel into our handcart, ready to fly full speed into a world where we are subjugated, and made to like it.  Those speaking out, begging society to step back are beaten to a pulp and called nazi, by those using the very tactics the nazis used, because history is no longer taught.  Those begging people not to dive head first into a world where they will be drugged into mental oblivion are berated for denying them the right to choose, only to them be demonized for not stopping someone from going to far.

We are at the tipping point, where countries invite those who openly call for the destruction of all who do not bow and serve them, to do just that.  We are watching the world burn, watching the tyrants start solidifying their power, so the question is very simple.  Will you take the red pill or blue pill?  Will you march to your destruction, going silently into the good night, or will you step back, will you realize that We The People have the true power?  Will you rise up against those who would be your oppressors, or will you place your head on the chopping block?  Only you can choose, I just hope it isn’t too late.

It’s been just over 20 years, and we’re nearly completely doomed

I turn 41 this year, meaning I’m now 23 years post High School, although only 8 post College due to being “too smart for my own good” in the mid-1990’s. I can remember not only being taught civics, forced to debate counter to my beliefs, hearing about WWII from those who fought and survivors of the nazi regime, and no matter GOP or DNC, my classmates are generally well adjusted adults. We don’t always agree on politics, but we don’t shout each other down and demand obedience.

Today, however, we have people graduating High School and College, so assured of their own superior intellect, they can’t accept that they aren’t given total and complete control over every aspect of life on the planet. We watched in the 80’s and 90’s as the USSR and all their subject nations languished in poverty until they finally fell, yet students today, watching the same thing happen in Venezuela, defend communism so vehemently that to disagree with them is treated as an attempt on their life!

Starting in 1991, while I was still in a Middle School building, I was earning credits for my high school graduation. Ninth grade English Lit saw us reading Animal Farm, 10th grade was 1984, then Brave New World was over the final two years, as the language from 1930’s Britain was a bit difficult to get through for us, so we had a bit longer. Yes, there were students who actually argued for each of the societal models we read about, but they were a vast minority.

Brave New World – Society in the 1930’s is in a depression, but Henry Ford’s assembly line would revolutionize the manufacturing world, and beyond. Just 700 or so years AF (after Ford) all life outside of “savage reservations” is engineered in a lab. Embryos are carefully controlled, not only to eradicate disease, but to stunt mental or physical development, creating a caste system. Controllers rule the world, the Alpha Plus and Alpha caste below them, with Beta, Gamma, Delta, and Epsilon below them. Each caste is programmed from birth either via aversion conditioning or sleep programming. Babies are shown flowers or colorful books, only to be shocked when they reach for them, toddlers and up have programming played to them as they sleep, so even the most subjugated of people actually defend their place in the world. Sex is common place, birth control is mandatory, and abortions required if any pregnancy occurs. Drugs are used to keep people docile, entertainment is plentiful, and in general, people are so doped up and entertained, they would fight to remain slaves to the controllers.

1984 – Written almost 20 years after Brave New World by George Orwell, Huxley’s nightmare vision of the future is turned on it’s ear. Rather than the over entertained, programmed from birth, doped out of their mind people, Orwell saw a world where a global police state comes to be. Phrases similar to the “See Something, Say Something” campaign of a few years back are common, children are encouraged to inform on their families, and fear rather than blind ignorance to subjugation and tyranny rules the world. Yet again, those running the show are above all people in more than their job, they live separate lives. As in Brave New World, the rules don’t apply to the controllers, nor in 1984. Those making and enforcing the rules disregard them without a second’s thought. This type of world can be seen in the movie Equilibrium, a not so big hit for Christian Bale, where people are required to take a dose of Prozium regularly every day. Emotion is banned, “Sense Offense” is punishable by death, and books/art/etc are destroyed so as not to provoke responses from the people, while those in power, as always, do as they please.

Animal Farm – The shortest by far of all three, Animal Farm is a tale about animals when the farmer goes away. At first nothing seems to be amiss, but the longer the farmer is gone, the more each species notices things aren’t right. The pigs first bring this up, forming a council of animals so that work gets done, food is provided to all, and life can continue. Rules are laid down, but soon edited. As they find they are “running the show,” the pigs begin to officially exempt themselves from rules, until the one rule is “All animals are equal, some animals are more equal than others” explaining the “do as you are told without question” attitude that takes over. Before long animals are sick or dead, but the pigs don’t care, as their new life of luxury is not affected, until the farmers come home, and the book ends.

Each of these books is a cautionary tale, all three warning against the traps of socialism/communism. Granted, Brave New World is a kind subjugation, as people are entertained and, via drugs, happy, but it’s still subjugation. All three societal models also spring up from a desire to avoid ills and other problems in society, but in the end, bring only more trouble and strife into being. All three also depend on an ignorant populous, Brave New World by simply outlawing all books or other items that are about “the old ways,” replacing them with meaningless things. 1984 is a society controlled so totally, people literally just eat, sleep and work, while Animal Farm is a mixture, with the pigs keeping the other animals so busy they don’t have time for anything else.

We are, sadly, seeing views like the photo above coming more and more to the fore, despite mountains and years of evidence that it won’t work, because education is now just about indoctrination and preparing students for standardized tests. One to two in three millennials today honestly does not know what Auschwitz or Buchenwald are, or that millions died in those places or places like them. Millions believe the Holocaust never happened, and students are being taught that “gun control” is the answer to every crime they hear about. After Parkland on 14 Feb 2018, we saw a student give a speech, complete with hand gestures, that only differed from a 1930’s Germany speech in the language it was heard in.

We are at a crossroads, and this may very well be the last we get before it’s too late, before our choices are Obey or Death. We have cities, counties and states now banning firearms solely because of their looks, as none address the Mini 14, a rifle that uses the same magazine as an AR-15 that’s chambered in .223 or .556. People are being told to surrender private property, with little to no compensation, or they will be fined, or worse. Students and even adults are so convinced that the Second Amendment is only there to protect muskets, that even when shown that Italy had repeating rifles and the Puckle Gun was first built 70+ years before the Constitution, that they will explode with righteous indignation if and when contradicted. Yet, in the next breath, they will proudly state how intelligent the Founders were to phrase the First Amendment as they did so it encompasses new technology for speech, then go on to state a cross on a public patch of grass is tantamount to their being cuffed and forced into a Church for the Sunday sermon. They not only don’t care, but can’t even see, their hypocrisy, nor will they ever admit their goal is totally disarming all Americans, opening the borders so everyone can come in and thus, more crime will happen, so in the end, 1984 will cease being a warning, as it will have become their playbook.

I wish I was delusional, I wish I was dreaming this while in a psyche ward somewhere, but I’m not. I’m watching the world around me inch closer and closer to tyranny, and seeing millions cheer our slow march to our own death. Far too many did not learn from History, and now we’re all doomed to repeat the worst mistakes of humanity.

Leaving Twitter for Gab

Twitter has begun purging their site of “white supremacists” and others who don’t conform to their view of what users should be, and it won’t be long until the social network is only populated by violent liberals calling for the death of all who don’t do as they’re told. I am moving to Gab, with the same username, and will be deleting my account and writing Twitter to let them know they are fostering an environment where all who don’t follow the liberal leaders are threatened, harassed, and all but taken out and shot, and that is not tolerable to me.

Hate Speech/Fighting Words

We already know the Supreme Court has ruled that “hate speech” is not a thing, and as predicted, the snowflakes at UC Berkeley promptly kept assaulting people for daring to invite, or even consider inviting, speakers they don’t approve, to groups they aren’t members of. The UCB College Republicans are, finally, getting tired to it, and calling on the college to protect them as they protect the criminals assaulting them.

Well, I’ve recently started doing two things, if the left is doing something they demand others not do, I make sure they see me doing it as much as possible, just as anything they say no one can do, I do it. We are fighting for the future of our country, against people who won’t just change things a bit, but who will utterly destroy everything about it, replacing it with a communist nation where all who don’t bow to them are killed, those who do, but aren’t the right type of person are forced to work to pay for the “free” things they say are rights. We’ve seen that in the USSR and still see it in North Korea, and trust me, no one in their right mind would ever support that.

As they are showing their disdain for the law, by demanding “sanctuary cities,” by praising a verdict where an illegal immigrant who killed an American was not convicted, and where they assault people for speech while screaming about the Bill of Rights, and far more. Well, here’s my plan, and I personally see it scaring the hell out of anyone I use it on.

The next time I’m told, in person of course, that Trump is Hitler, or any of the other talking points, I’m going to immediately tell that person they’ve just used hate speech, or fighting words, to assault me and I’m just defending myself. Now, as I’m six foot one, about 240lbs, and don’t look “fat,” you can imagine the reaction. When they scream about their rights, I’ll ask about the rights of those being forcibly silenced. If the idiot is wearing or otherwise showing support for the antifa cowards, I’ll bring up UCB.

This crap has to stop, about 10 years ago, I was debating economic models, for an assignment in Economics, when an idiot called me racist. I told him to get lost, we were discussing a class assignment, and he grabbed me. I quickly had him in a “very uncomfortable” hold and told the Campus Police officer who came over that yes, I’d been assaulted. This was the start of the “you can’t say anything I don’t approve of” mindset, as he argued I was racist and assaulted him even after the video of him starting things, him grabbing me, and me using a very mild hold. You could show video of MS13 thanking Hillary for letting them in illegally as they go down a line of children shooting them, and the liberals would rant about the need to disarm the law abiding or the need for the “dreamers” to be made citizens so they can make something of themselves, ignoring all that proves them wrong.

So, who’s with me? Who thinks we can maybe convince a few of their idiocy, or at least get them to shut up, if we start using their tactics, or will they demand we be arrested for what they routinely say is their right?
