If you follow this blog then you know I am a registered Democrat. As I have stated before I am a Kennedy Democrat. You also know that the last Dem. I voted for was Carter. What Carter showed me was the demise of the old Democratic party and the birth of a new wrinkle: socialism. At that time the progressive socialists were not the face of the party. Rather, they were in the background or on the streets demonstrating. Sometime between the end of the 60’s and the mid-80’s they were in a position to usurp power from the old party. Not all at once, but, after a patient wait. While they were doing this they were also invading the environmental movement and are the primary reason that I quit the Sierra Club.
Why did I quit both? I saw the handwriting on the wall; simply put. I knew what was happening with a lot of my friends and how politically active they were getting. Political activism, if you’ll remember, was also the excuse for terrorism including bombings. That was the end of it for me. To a large extent, that was also when my parents stopped voting int he national elections. The Democratic party became the party of progressive socialists which turned the party on its ear. Now, look where it is.
I hear people in the press saying that Republicans are to blame for the rhetoric which caused the nut job the other day to try to assassinate Republican congressmen. Not 24 hours in, Pelosi blamed the Republicans also. Blamed Trump to. She is a hypocrite and liar. let’s take a look at who, of the two parties, is dangerous.
Ask yourself, who is constantly demonstrating including damaging property? Some on the left have tried to tell me that the right wing is hiring these anarchists just to muddy the water. All that claim means is that they don’t know what they are talking about. It has always been t he left, since the late 50’s whose people have been violent. Wh o are the ones that lie constantly about Republicans and Trump? Which media outlets continually broadcast the barrage of “anonymous sources” who are later proved to be lies? Who is all for killing babies and who wants to break down our nation starting at our borders?
It’s the left all the way and they lie incessantly to cover their tracks plus providing false witness to blame others for what their real plank is. They are less than noble and I do not include the Republicans in any of this as they are to timid to worry about. We should worry about their timidness though. They should be exposing and arresting an awful lot of people. If for no other reason than to save our country from socialism.
Trump’s election was a shock to their plans and psyche. Clinton’s loss was not planned for and they are positioning themselves to thwart Trump before they are exposed. Trump is all business though. Despite their malevolence, he is nearly immune to them. I hope he will remain so.
Before we had cable we had only CNN. As far as world news, that made us captive to either the SF Bay Area channels or CNN. This was in the early 90’s and things were different. The news was fine for what I watched it for. At that time Desert Storm was happening and CNN was pretty much on the spot at that time.
Over the years, however, with the advent of CNBC and MSNBC those channels have gone from an admitted liberal bent to full on irresponsible journalism. “Yellow Journalism” is the old term for such biased news reporting. This is where those corporations are floating now. In a sea of Yellow. Hey, I’ve heard all the arguments from those who think Fox is crap right wing. I look at it only as the reporting compares to CNN and MSNBC. This is why I know that Fox, though it has its faults, is worlds apart in objectivity than either of its trivial rivals.
A good way to put it is this: Fox news is reported by mostly adults. The others are child reporters. They are emotional and crass in their journalism. One CNN reporter said on air that Trump was a piece of shit. At that I rest my case. But then, look at the times these reporters grew up. Who were their fathers and mothers? Those of my generation who never had any serious financial problems or, if they did, were made bitter by the reality that life imposes.
I have called my generation (Baby Boomers) the most spoiled generation that has ever lived. Too much, too easy for us. Then again, some of us were awaken by combat as was I.
The shooting in Virginia today was an obvious result of the innate disrespect of a spoiled child. A child of 66 who loved the socialist B.S., was probably a fan of a news org. other than Fox and was probably made mentally ill by the jaded and lying reportage of the “C”, “M” networks. And that is not to mention the vitriol that has been spouted by some democrats in the Senate and congress. All of whom got togther after the shooting to make nice on the news channels. Bull. give it a week and the diatribe against Trump and Republicans will start again. Actually, it will most likely not stop except in public.
The news organizations and the progressive liberals are the ones who have and are fomenting this destructive behavior. They may be to blinded by their dogma to see it but they are responsible. “piece of shit” Trump is not the remark of a stable adult. It is the remark of a spoiled brat. Remember that, we the people, voted for Trump and, believe it or not, he is doing a job which has needed to be done for many years. If he can clean up even a part of DC we will all be better off.
Glad you stopped in.
I am writing another blog which concerns the times in which I got home from Vietnam. I call it “Upstairs Blog” because this is where I spent two wonderful years as roommate to my cousin John Nichols who was also a returning Vietnam combat vet.
The years were 1973-1975. they were years in which I cut loose and did all that nonsense while still pulling down a 4.0 GPA. Not a boast, mind you, as I did have one semester when I dropped to a 3.75. That must have been after my introduction to blonde Lebanese hash. That stuff was good but there was a darker colored one which may as well have been acid. Wow, might have been acid! Can you smoke that stuff? Acid I mean. Nah, it was just really fine hash.
I am writing this post just to give you a flavor of what I am endeavoring to do on that blog. The upstairs was in Fairfax, Ca. and I already gave you the period. I am going to take you on a journey and also give you a basis for who I am. What I have learned and why I am still alive. Should be interesting. That’s all I am going to say for now. Read up on “nimda” when you have the chance. I have already started a couple of posts and a page or two. See what you think.
On rare occasions we all need a place to go and refresh. To allow ourselves a respite from the world and its darkness. Some find religion and church to be good venue. Others, just a good book and still others a few cocktails.
There is noting wrong with finding refuge and respite from society and harsh individuals. Most of us, however, have learned since childhood how to deal with wretched people. For the most part, we stand up to them with a deft word or two or, in extremes, simply walk away.
The salient word here is “learned.” I have never had anything remotely like a safe space and I doubt that you have either. We learn to cope. Now, coping isn’t the ideal mechanism when we know that people should treat each other with courtesy. The fact is, we know that reality bites and we go through life understanding this. On rare occasions a fist will put things right with a loudmouth. Coping is what adults do.
This nonsense concerning safe spaces is almost laughable were it not so very sad. There might be a good reason for this however. That reason, when one considers the strange aspects of this type of manipulation, is that it is a great way to have children never understand anything other than those who are instructing them. Ie, no outside influence. Just a chamber of hot chocolate and and playdough and kittens playing. How easily massaged are the minds of such young adults? Nothing to realign them from the pablum of their respected liberal adult professors. Only the constant hum of derisive speech day in and day out. Speech which denigrates all things outside the campus bubble. How easy, then, to manipulate these young and malleable adults. Manipulate them out of fear and loathing for all things American, for one. A great way to alter the culture which, right or wrong, has been painfully preserved by those whose children are now being manipulated to hate them.
I have been considering this for some time. Bear in mind that I grew up watching this liberal manipulation as it started in the 50’s-60’s. have watched it through the eyes of one who knew that this was perverse. When drugs were introduced at the same time as socialism was being introduced this man was wondering why the sudden debilitation of his generation. The prying away of American values for the wonders of LSD. They happened hand in hand and brought about radicalism.
Just a few tid-bits for you to chew on. I could be wrong. I doubt it.
