Ross: Even A Fool Like Me Can See It

What the hell is wrong with people?

There’s somethin’ wrong with the world today
I don’t know what it is
Something’s wrong with our eyes
We’re seein’ things in a different way
And God knows it ain’t his ~ Steven Tyler, Livin’ On The Edge

Have you ever been in a room filled with people, yet felt completely out of place, as if you didn’t belong there? If you have, then you’ll at least have somewhat of an understanding how I feel whenever I leave my home and have to interact with the people of modern day America. It’s bad enough dealing with people from my own generation who have allowed emotions and political party allegiance to overrule their ability to think critically and analyze facts; but the youth of this country are something else altogether, and make me fear for the future of this once great country.

When I look around me and see the younger generation that is growing up to assume its place in the world I can’t help but feel an overwhelming sense of doom and despair. However, that sense of doom is also accompanied by the comforting assurance that I’ll probably be dead within a decade and won’t have to witness what happens to this country when they finally take over. I have to wonder though, from whatever eternal resting place my soul goes to will I suffer as I watch the country I love go down the toilet? If that truly is the case, I can only imagine the anguish the souls of our Founding Fathers must be suffering as they watch all their hard work and sacrifices being taken for naught, and the freedoms they fought to secure for us being thrown aside as if they were garbage.

…and Liberals Wonder Why Americans Are Buying More Guns?

“Those who are best acquainted with the last successful resistance of this country against the British arms, will be most inclined to deny the possibility of it. Besides the advantage of being armed, which the Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation, the existence of subordinate governments, to which the people are attached, and by which the militia officers are appointed, forms a barrier against the enterprises of ambition, more insurmountable than any which a simple government of any form can admit of. Notwithstanding the military establishments in the several kingdoms of Europe, which are carried as far as the public resources will bear, the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms. And it is not certain, that with this aid alone they would not be able to shake off their yokes. But were the people to possess the additional advantages of local governments chosen by themselves, who could collect the national will and direct the national force, and of officers appointed out of the militia, by these governments, and attached both to them and to the militia, it may be affirmed with the greatest assurance, that the throne of every tyranny in Europe would be speedily overturned in spite of the legions which surround it. Let us not insult the free and gallant citizens of America with the suspicion, that they would be less able to defend the rights of which they would be in actual possession, than the debased subjects of arbitrary power would be to rescue theirs from the hands of their oppressors.” ~ James Madison, Excerpt from Federalist Paper No. 46

They are Not Refugees and Immigrants, they are Raiders and Invaders

In the past, foreign peoples sometimes invaded their neighbors as raiders to rape, rob, and loot, taking women, crops, and gold from the people who lived in other countries.

In the modern world armies and police forces make such raids impossible. Civilized countries like America do not hunt down the raiders and slaughter them but allows them to live among their own people to take jobs, thus changing the dynamics by which invaders raid their neighbors. Continue reading

Reaping what radicals sowed

Come home to roost…

To understand the historical origins of the school-shooter-broken-home connection (“Link between mass shooters, absent fathers ignored by anti-gun activists,” Web, March 27) one must think back to the end of World War II. Then, returning heroes, educated under the GI bill, started families, bought homes, built businesses and came to be known as “the Greatest Generation.” A common saying during this time was, “A man’s word is his bond.” Continue reading

Celebrate, Celebrate, dance to the music…

Man, I am heading out to Big 5 Sporting Goods today to buy a welcome back gift for the boys – oh yeah – ‘The boys are back in town….‘ – well kind of.

The Menendez Brothers… together again!

And in my opinion – they should have been found innocent after what their parents did to them. ~ Ed.

A Shot that will be Heard ‘’round the World

Get off your “duff” people! Start getting involved with your Government, or there will be no Government. I speak mostly to the Liberal Democrats and their followers that have been disrupting the process since Donald Trump was elected.

President Trump is not a bad man. He may be somewhat gruff, and he may not be the polished Politician we are used to; but those polished Politicians are the ones that got us where we are today. And that, in my opinion, is not good. Continue reading

Progressive” Poison in Public Education

The activity program was introduced, on an experimental basis, into the public schools of the City of New York in 1935. Several different descriptive terms have been applied to this variety of “Progressive” education since. It has been called the New Education and the Experience Curriculum but we are of the opinion that the essence of the educational changes implied are best signalized by the name initially used.

It was announced at the time that it would be applied only in the first three years of the elementary schools¾in nine schools, with three schools operating on the traditional curriculum used as controls. Results obtained were to be used, one against the other, in each group of schools. The plan adopted as announced was scientific.

Initial Deception
However, shortly after the plan was put into operation changes occurred. The original plan as announced of nine schools of activity program type and three schools of traditional type was not followed. Newspaper notices told us that the activity program was spreading like wildfire throughout the school system. Before long we were informed that fifty schools had adopted this activity program. It had even extended to the junior high schools. The scientific approach was abandoned. The public was informed, through the press, largely by means of the School Page in one New York newspaper that the plan was being widely accepted and widely approved by superintendents, principals and teachers. It became apparent, within a relatively brief time, that the method used to introduce the plan into our public schools was simply a device to gain initial entry. The professional spirit was strained.

Catch and Release Remains Alive and Well

Few things are more infuriating than the nation’s de facto capitulation to those who cross our borders illegally.

“The advantages of an ocean on either side of us, a nuclear arsenal, and a $700 billion defense budget do little good when enemies can enter through the front door and roam freely within the nation’s interior.” ~ Christopher Roach, American Greatness

Illegal, Invading Fish…

Few things are more infuriating than the nation’s de facto capitulation to those who cross our borders illegally. And nothing says capitulation more forcefully than the con game known as America’s “catch and release” policy.

A news release by the Department of Homeland Security outlines how that game is played: “Due to legal loopholes and court backlogs, even apprehended illegal aliens are released and become part of the temporary, illegal population of people that we cannot remove.” Continue reading

Brave New World Revisited and the Disease of Over-Organization

When people talk of the freedom of writing, speaking or thinking I cannot choose but laugh. No such thing ever existed. No such thing now exists; but I hope it will exist. But it must be hundreds of years after you and I shall write and speak no more. ~ John Adams letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 15, 1817

Brave New World Revisited is one of the few books I’ve read in my life that I continue to think about on a regular basis. In terms of understanding where humanity stands at present and what we need to do to get out of the mess we’ve created, it’s one of the more important pieces of non-fiction you can find.

I recently felt the need to reread the book for some unknown reason, and I’m glad I did. The choices we make as a species about how we reorganize human affairs in the decades to come will determine the future of human freedom on this planet. Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World Revisited offers an abundance of wisdom for us to consider as we move forward.

Huxley was deeply concerned with the importance of individual human freedom and the forces relentlessly trying to stifle it. Here’s a brief description of how Huxley viewed our species: Continue reading

RUN JESSE, RUN!

For a while now, I’ve wanted to creatively address the matter of Jesse Louis Jackson, Sr. bearing false witness to his personal accounts related to the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on April 4, 1968, on the balcony of the Lorraine Motel in Memphis, TN. Over the years, in conjunction with numerous inquiries about the matter, many have urged me to provide a more detailed explanation on the “peculiar” version of Rev. Jackson’s activity surrounding MLK’s death … Let me declare that this story has been told before by individuals more qualified in the literary and research fields than me. However, this subject has yet to be transformed into an originative form of artistic expression … Until now.

Before I go any further, let me state that in no way does this written description, my use of the phrase “Run Jesse, Run!,” or the image/shirt imply or insinuate that Jesse Jackson had any direct or indirect involvement with the assassination of MLK. This assumption/accusation would be inaccurate. That is not what this is about. I do respect a healthy amount of Mr. Jackson’s civil rights and political activism throughout the years.

DRAIN THE SWAMP: Remove the Swamp Critters

My opinion of having ARMED soldiers on the Southern Border is not a new or recent one. I was commenting on this many years ago – so much so that the Southern POVERTY LYING COMMIES did a hit job on me in 2008 – Grassroots Granny Suggests Shooting Migrants.

They love to ADD their take on my comments with more than a bit of SPLC amplification (lies).

Open doors and free goodies do not deter invaders – it increases their numbers. An armed border is a secure border. Bring in those TANKS and armed military backed up by civilians ready to defend America against the foreign invaders. And – remember to vote against the RINO’s and the Democrats who created this mess to begin with. ~ Granny

Trump says he’ll guard Mexican border with military
Trump said Tuesday he will use the military to guard the border with Mexico against a “caravan” of illegal immigrants approaching the U.S. “We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Mr. Trump told reporters. He said he has been speaking to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis about deploying the military on the border. About 1,000 immigrants from Central America, mainly Honduras, are moving in a group through Mexico toward the U.S. Some of them are expected to seek asylum if they reach the U.S. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by… (Continue to full article)

Organizers of US-bound immigrant caravan accuse Trump of ´bullying,´ ´threats of mass violence´
(Video) – The organization behind the 1,000-person strong caravan of Central Americans surging toward the United States´ southern border accused President Trump on Monday of “bullying” immigrants and threatening “mass violence” — while Trump again warned the advancing procession “had better be stopped.” Pueblo Sin Fronteras, or People Without Borders, fired back at Trump after the president´s Twitter tirade urging Congress to invoke the “nuclear option” — requiring only a simple majority to pass legislation — in order to pass bills for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and tough immigration reform… (Continue to full article)

Trump’s Idea of Using Military Resources for Border Wall Isn’t Unprecedented
The military has been involved before in putting up a barrier along the U.S.-Mexican border without explicit authorization from Congress, according to a 2009 government report. President Donald Trump recently proposed to draw from the $700 billion appropriated for the military for funds to build the border wall, which comes with a price tag estimated at $25 billion. Initial fencing constructed after Congress passed the 2006 Secure Fence Act was paid for by the Department of Homeland Security, while engineering and labor was carried out through an agreement with the Defense Department. It isn’t clear whether this is what Trump… (Continue to full article)

I’ll put troops on the southern border until the wall is built claims Trump as he claims caravan of illegals has been broken up because HE threatened Mexico with end of Nafta
Donald Trump threatened to cut off aid to Central America on Tuesday as he fumed about a caravan of migrants from Honduras making their way unencumbered through Mexico. Trump said the caravan ‘had better be stopped’ or he’d punish Honduras and other countries that ‘allow this to happen.’ ‘Cash cow NAFTA is in play,’ he warned in a tweet. ‘Congress MUST ACT NOW!‘… (Continue to full article)

Lenin Was Right

Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the capitalist system was to debauch the currency. Lenin was certainly right. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.

In the latter stages of the war all the belligerent governments practiced, from necessity or incompetence, what a Bolshevist might have done from design. Even now, when the war is over, most of them continue out of weakness the same malpractices. But further, the governments of Europe, being many of them at this moment reckless in their methods as well as weak, seek to direct on to a class known as “profiteers” the popular indignation against the more obvious consequences of their vicious methods.

Warning! Living Might Cause Cancer

OOPS – No more coffee enema’s in Cali

One never knows what might cause cancer these days. Whatever it is, California will be first to find it.

Under California’s Proposition 65 law, cancer warnings are hopping up all over the place. We have another one today as a California Judge Rules Coffee Must Carry Cancer Warning.

Coffee in the state of California must carry a cancer warning, a judge here ruled, in a blow to Starbucks and other retailers which had argued that a state law meant to protect consumers shouldn’t apply to them. Continue reading

Oceania, ‘Tis For Thee: The World of ‘1984’ ~ Forming Now!

“Oceania” was a nation described in George Orwell’s “1984” as being comprised of Britain (called “Airstrip One,”) and the United States. There were two other superpowers, namely Eurasia and Eastasia. Other lands rich in resources were contested over, such as Africa and assumingly South America…lands never kept by any of three Super-states for any significant period. The “flux” in conquests was exactly what the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) of our time would have termed “necessary” to justify large expenditures: War as the focal purpose, rather than the exceptional event.

Where Are the Famous Old Gay Baseball Players?

Ohhh – can I push in your stool??

One of those dog-that-didn’t-bark questions is why, despite the vast number of books written about baseball players, I have never heard of a single prominent player in history who sounded like he probably was homosexual. There are currently 750 major league baseball players. There must have been at least 10,000 major league ballplayers over the last 130 years.

Two really obscure players — Glenn Burke (who died of AIDS in 1995) and Billy Bean (not the celebrated “Moneyball” general manager of Oakland — that’s Billy Beane) — came out of the closest, but that’s it for admitted homosexuals in the history of big league baseball. (In contrast, AIDS claimed the lives of numerous male figure skaters).

But what about famous players? Maybe 1,000 ballplayers in history would be more or less “famous” and thus would be subject to constant reminiscences and research. Continue reading

America Is In Utter Jeopardy

President Trump recently signed the largest six month spending bill in United States history. Illegal border crossers are having a field day crossing our southern border like they did during the Obama presidency. Border officials are back to catching and releasing those who shuffle into our republic illegally. Leftist democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuckie Schumer are still celebrating the massive funding of sanctuary cities. Obviously neither Chuckie or Nancy have any regard for American born sovereigns and legal immigrants who are often raped, robbed, or beaten to death by illegal border crossers who moonlight as dastardly MS 13 gang members.

The Danger of the Progressive Agenda

Recently Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, a policy advisor for the Catholic Association, wrote about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2019 budget “Realizing the Promise of Progressive Government”. Dr. Christie is troubled and takes great exception to the Governors radical policy initiatives on abortion as stated in the budget.

Dr. Christie begins his critique with this statement, “The promise of this style of government seems to be to fulfill every liberal dream about abortion in one fell swoop, or at least the dreams that haven’t already come true in a state that has the highest rate of abortion in the United States”.

The Death Of Democracy

Yes, we live in deeply troubling times. I’m afraid the US is following history’s course to a tee, as a declining super power (or one certainly challenged by others) by ratcheting up all

Death of Democracy by gibraltarium

sorts of schemes to sabotage the other great powers, just to hold on to its “unipolar moment” since the end of the Cold War. The US will not succeed, but the results will be terrible for the American nation and catastrophic on a global scale. ~ A. Carlson

Anyone who thinks democracy doesn’t matter may be in for a rude shock later this year, when we know the result of America’s mid-term elections. The Deep State is on course to take control of Congress. If this happens, it will be the next step in a global trend of side-lining democracy in the West, driven in large part by American foreign policy. It has led to governments everywhere increasing control over their people, in an inversion of democratic principles. Continue reading
