Bad Parenting and the Products Who Crave Socialism

Of course, I’m against socialism and why I support the Republican party. I’m a very hard worker and a persistent overachiever, relative to the rest of the world. Obviously, I wouldn’t support any form of government or economic system that encourages lazy people to mooch off my efforts for the rest of their lives. Such a thing is complete insanity from my perspective and is precisely why socialism will never work in America so long as people like me are in it, and I’m not going anywhere. The basic premise of socialism is to attach people together into a kind of symbiotic relationship, but the failure always occurs when the lazy refuse to do their part, and that’s when things always break down in a socialist society. Its kind of like that moment when the teacher in a class asks a question and everyone knows the answer but nobody wants to be the first person to raise their hand, so nobody does. That is why socialist countries fail because nobody raises their hand to solve problems or make things that can count toward a GDP. They are waiting for someone else to do it and that someone never comes along.

In American society we have built our Constitution and entire means of government to empower those individuals to raise their hands and to act on their own, which is the key to why economic growth in America has always been good. Yes, that could go way in an instant and there is a real danger of that happening over the next 20 years because of the many physiological problems that people have due to their improper upbringings and tendency toward drags to numb their minds from resolving the impact of problems. When I say the Democrat party is filled with people who are functionally insane, I mean it quite literally. And to cover that insanity they need to partner up with someone who has it together which is why socialism is on the rise. But that isn’t fair to a person like me who works really hard, takes care of my own personal responsibilities, and is always looking to improve the world around me. It is not right or just to expect me to do all the work and let everyone else mooch off my efforts. So naturally I am against socialism and liberalism in general. It doesn’t benefit me in any way and from the eyes of a sane person it doesn’t help society at large to give them a hand out when what they really need is a hand up.

More young people are migrating toward socialism these days largely due to their public educations, but more specifically because of the lack of proper fathers in their lives. The roles that government plays into the lives of its citizens is directly correlated to their parental experience at home during their childhoods. There is a running joke among men about women, if a woman has a good relationship with her father, she won’t be easy to bag and tag as a sexual conquest. You won’t find many Vegas showgirls, prostitutes, and strippers who go to their parent’s house on the weekends for dinner and talk to their dads about the origin of the universe. But you will find a dad who molested the kids when they were young of and broke their trust bond at some point in the past. The same holds true between liberals and conservatives. Strong positive family experiences tend to make conservative children who grow up into Republican adults who work hard all their lives and are self-reliant. Dysfunctional homes tend to breed Democrats—people who look toward government to be that parental figure they have always craved in their lives but never had.

The role that fathers play in a family is that they teach children to separate over time from their mothers tendency to overly coddle them over every little boo, boo. Father’s are the gateway toward a child’s personal independence and mothers aren’t always happy about it. But the relationships are necessary. Moms traditionally provide the home care nurturing that is needed to live life as a child. Fathers are there to provide a path toward independence, to show children how to ride their first bicycle, how to fix a car, or how to manage the stress of a difficult situation on their own. Eventually if the father is successful the child will leave the constant nurturing of the mother and will seek to live their own kind of life in their own kind of way. The mother needs the father as well because if everything is left to her, she will have the kids living in the basement for the rest of their lives. That is how a liberal is created, because the roles of parental influences become muddied and dysfunctional. Of course, there are exceptions, fathers can be nurturing and mothers can play the role of disconnector, but biologically these are the rules of humanity and there is a cost in changing them.

No society can expect to be successful if the people in that society are functioning from a mental illness and clearly that is the problem with anybody who calls themselves a liberal. Empathy is a fine emotion but if a political party is built off a victimization model, then no amount of success can ever be expected. Those elements just don’t add up and no amount of fuzzy liberal math can make it so. I’m not saying that we throw liberals into a deep well and bury them forever, but they can’t be allowed to believe they are equal contributors to society when they are actually lazy ass losers seeking to mooch off hard workers all of their lives. That is essentially their political platform, to encourage the lazy to mooch off the hard-working, so obviously any sane hard-working person would be opposed to such a thing.

With fathers pushed out of the lives of most families these days, and this was a plan from day one of the progressive movement around the world, to replace parental influences with government ones, children never learned to leave their mothers and thus they grown into adults looking for that lost parental structure for which government is promised to be. But of course, that never happens, government never replaces good parents. And socialism never makes good people from children into adults. Any fluke occurrence is purely by the randomization of the universe in producing occasionally positive results, but not to the degree that statistically the numbers mean anything. Socialism is a stupid idea by a stupid guy in Karl Marx who clearly had intellectual problems. But their problems are not the problems of the rest of us who do the right things and work hard to do so. We can sympathize with their lack of resources but we can’t bend our society to their weaknesses. It’s up to them to overcome these weaknesses, not to weaken the rest of us because someone has to do the work of building a country and they aren’t the ones who do.

We’re Overmedicating our Children

I have not been surprised about the results of Erica Komisar’s work over the last few years. As a psychoanalyst she has been advocating the importance of mother’s staying home with their children for the first three years of their lives and how monumental fathers are to children’s lives consistently for a while. She appears frequently on television and radio interviews and is respected outside of the partisan political loop. What she is talking about isn’t political at all, its pure logic not motivated by the type of science that is always seeking funding from government sources, but she genuinely wants to help people not have so many problems in their lives. I know of her work as a kind of similar personality who has the same goals and objectives in life so I cheer her on for continued success. However, I was particularly struck by an interview she had on Fox & Friends over the weekend of March 0th, 2019 where the discussion was simply put, “we’re overmedicating our children.”

Erica is a very polished and professional personality who has a great public profile. She lets the facts speak for themselves, however my role in everything is much different so I don’t have to mince words to the same degree. I have strong opinions and have a means to communicate them in various ways, most often with some color when necessary. And on this topic, I don’t think I will be as nice as she is on this matter which I consider one of the great tragedies of our modern age. You might say dear reader that I have an obsession with proper mental health and I spend a considerable amount of time trying to help people, especially people close to me, aspire to greatness within the confines of their skulls. I think there is nothing greater in the universe than a human mind and there is no tragedy greater than wasting it. I’m against all forms of intoxication, including alcohol and I think if people aren’t trying to read a book a week that they are wasting their lives. So for me one of the great crimes of our century is this tendency to medicate children for every little problem instead of teaching them to be problem solvers themselves. For hyper little boys which is part of their mechanism for acquiring intelligence and wisdom as they grow older, we have destroyed several generations of our species intellectually with over medicating them for every type of anxiety.

I don’t believe ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is anything to medicate, it’s a tool children have of obtaining as much information before they physically hit the age of puberty for their own survival and by numbing them to its affects, we are severely limiting their abilities as adults. It is no surprise that so many adults are functioning so poorly in life, not even able to solve basic problems at the psychological level, because their means of learning how was destroyed in them when they were children. Then to make matters worse we have centralized most of our education and what we teach has been entirely incorrect for individual functions. This has made parenting particularly difficult because our political structure has fed the myth that out there in the world are the keys to happiness, in increased GDP, employment ratios, and the feminization goals of modern life where the real solutions are at home between and adult and a child.

Watching the new HBO documentary on Michael Jackson I had a very different take on the whole thing than any other news outlet that I have read or watched on the matter. I think they all miss the most critical point of the situation, and ultimately Michael Jackson died due to his addiction to drugs for which he had brought into his life to deal with all his various forms of depression. The same could be said of Prince who also died prematurely due to drug consumption, prescribed or otherwise. The desire to take any drugs of any kind indicates that there is something severely wrong with the way you are thinking. If you have a healthy mind, you should not even be taking an aspirin. I think the Michael Jackson situation is something I’d defend. Jackson was a pure talent and a great contributor to our culture. But the guy had his childhood ripped away from him and it certainly had an impact on his mental health. Did he become a child molester? I think that is the wrong way to look at his problems. He was damaged goods moving into his adult life because of many factors, basically his parents sold him off to the slavery of the music industry, then they rode the gravy train. Once Jackson was old enough to realize it, he was being crushed by the pressure of securing his family obligations and he just couldn’t handle it, because his mind was not there enough to deal with the problems, and he never got over it. He tried to repair what was broken by going back to his childhood and hanging out with children he never had a chance to spend time with as a kid himself. Did sex happen, probably, but it’s the why that matters. How many adults right now have unhealthy yearnings to have sex with young people? Way, way, way too many. The real question is why. Because as children they are missing something important so that they can be proper adults. When we, as a culture, use medicine as a substitute to good parenting the product we get is a broken child and most of the time that person stays broken all their lives.

You can’t cheat the process folks, children need a mother. Government schools are not a replacement. And children need a masculine figure that participates in their life diligently. There is no better way to raise a child but with a very caring mother and a confident, strong father. No drug in the world or education system can offer a reasonable replacement. But even that isn’t the answer because bad parenting can be even worse, a parent or both who have mental problems of their own passing those on to the next generation with lazy drugs and a lack of intellect for a young mind starving for knowledge. When a kid doesn’t get that knowledge, they are often ruined for life and we look on in horror as to why, such as in the case of Michael Jackson. Even as a modern businessman says to his wife, “I love you honey, I’ll be back next week from my business trip to Asia,” yet while there he is seeking out sex with 13 to 14-year-old girls. And the wife is slamming vodka and wine numbing her mind to the world around her because deep down inside she knows—but can’t do anything about it as she watches reruns of Friends trying to figure out why her life is so screwed up. And when her kids want a book read to them, or want to know why the moon looks different each night, sometimes its full, sometimes it looks like a smile in the sky, she just puts them on Ritalin to shut them up. Their teacher’s at school keeps complaining about their hyperactive nature so the defeated mom just says, “what the hell, why not?” And that is how the world is destroyed, one person at a time, drug by drug.

I would recommend anything Erica Komisar writes or says in an interview to a person seeking answers. We have an obligation to have a direct conversation about this matter because it is a massive international tragedy presently. If you add up the loss of all the children we have now to abortion and add that loss to the mental impediments that most children suffer through these days because they can’t trust their parents, they can’t trust their schools and they sure as hell can’t trust their government, we have a major crisis on our hands. And not talking about it won’t make it magically go away.

Take The Fifth

One thing we should have all learned from the enemies who have taken over the Beltway culture and are now hostile agents functioning within our government is that it’s perfectly OK to take the fifth under interrogation and crooked testimony. One thing we all should have learned from Lois Lerner when she took the fifth to hide her crimes as one of the big bosses at the FBI who abused her power to suppress Tea Party groups, the reason for doing it is to take the energy out of the investigation on the other side. When malicious characters are plotting your demise, it is best to say as little as possible in the legal realm. Participating in their legal loop holes gives them power and acknowledges their role in the overthrow of our country. I would suggest for now on when it comes to the FBI, Congress, or even the local police, that those of us on the conservative side of things just stick to the Constitution and plead the fifth giving the enemy nothing to work with. It implies guilt in the short run but it prevents incriminating testimony from being twisted around to hurt you with, so you should use it.

I was watching the body language and overall social representation of Adam Schiff the other day while on television talking about the unlimited investigations that this current congress had planned for President Trump and his associates and considered what made a man like that tick. In any other age during our history as human beings Adam Schiff would have had his ass kicked long ago, and he wouldn’t be in power to even lead such investigations. But so long as we conduct ourselves in the manner of law and order, slime ball attorney types like Adam Schiff become the dominate aggressors and those most positioned to defend themselves physically and intellectually are vulnerable to the legal gymnastics of the bar association’s rules. But those rules are pretty worthless, like our Constitution that liberals want to change every five minutes, everything is only written down on paper. They are meaningless unless human beings bring value to them and agree that the conduct is something they will play along with.

In this age where the people in law enforcement lack integrity and they are more than willing to illegally spy on suspects, kick down doors in the middle of the night to arrest friends of the President of the United States purely out of political motivations toward election insurrection, it is in our agreement to follow the words on a piece of paper that gives the very weak and corrupt the means to destroy us. So lets just stop doing it. To all those who have been indicated to provide testimony to this very corrupt congress which is now in session in 2019, when they call you up to provide circus like testimony against President Trump, then do as Lois Lerner did, and Brennen, and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch did, plead the fifth and take the energy out of the investigation. They are going to try to do to you what they did to Michael Cohen, Roger Stone and Paul Manafort no matter what you say. So don’t say anything.

Personally, I think that little punk Adam Schiff is due for a physical confrontation, he would be nothing in the real world if not for having the ability to hide behind the laws of our nation to act as a domestic terrorist which is precisely what he’s doing. He doesn’t get his ass kicked because he is effectively in charge of the law so that has given birth to this new kind of corrupt beta male who can destroy countries from gavels and media protests, while avoiding real physical contact that has always previously kept our species from getting too far out of control in the realm of corruption. Only previously when kings and emperors fell under the sickness of corruption did we see such evil perpetrated among the innocent. Now in this age of legal manipulation, people like Adam Schiff can gain the power of former emperors just with a few paragraphs from a book written by legal minds to give their pencil neck little asses influence over the strong. So their abuse is a new kind of bully, one that loses all their power the moment that we, as a society, decide we no longer value the words on a printed page. I am suggesting that we have arrived at that moment.

I’m not saying that we march into congress and rip the little bitch out of his seat and turn him into an accordion, now—but rather that we don’t enter his chamber of legal terrorism and incriminate ourselves to his manipulations. Plead the fifth, that’s why it’s there. In Second Call Defense, which I’m proud to be involved with, we tell people who may shoot someone with their personal firearm to hand the phone over to the police when they arrive on the scene to let the Second Call Defense lawyers do all the talking. We tell shooters not to say anything that might get them into trouble later. Sure, the person shot may have been trying to rob you, or rape your wife, harm your children. Maybe they were as criminals doing what you think is obviously against the law and you feel you have nothing to hide. That may all be true, but in a corrupt political culture like we have now anything and everything can be twisted around against logic and used against you if you prove yourself to be a political enemy. Anything, so say nothing.

I’m a big fan of settling these types of conflicts directly, recently I suggested that bringing back dueling would be a good, civilized thing to our society because it forces people to deal with other in a very terminal way. People aren’t scared of jail time any more and politicians feel they will never get caught. Adam Schiff has nothing to fear from our present society so long as he controls the law. He doesn’t worry about someone kicking his ass to hell and back at a local restaurant, or being hog tied in the middle of the night and turned into a belt because he controls the law for good and bad giving his skinny little ass power he would never otherwise have. Now if you are a little pencil dick like him you love the law because it protects you from the ramifications of your intentions. But for people who could easily squash him like a bug, the law is very bad because it takes away their natural power, they have to provide balance to evil and corruption when it shows itself. Only people in Adam Schiff’s position would think that such a system is good because it protects him from us once we get pissed off and are ready to straighten things out in our own way.

So when they call you forth, make sure to take the Fifth. Don’t feed their corruption with an acknowledgment of their power. Just don’t give them anything. Don’t talk, don’t allow yourself to be tricked into false testimony, and certainly don’t trust them. They do not have your best interests in mind. They are vile and evil and they deserve their asses kicked in a major way. But under the terms of civility, don’t feed their investigations with an acknowledgment of power for which they have never deserved. Give them nothing for television. Give them nothing for The New York Times and Washington Post to twist around toward the liberal perspective—give them absolutely nothing. And if you can manage, give them less than that!

If Manafort is Going to Jail, then why not Comey and Mueller, they have defrauded the American treasury of far larger sums of money

OK, so let’s get this straight, the government prosecuted President Trump’s campaign manager from the 2016 election for denying the IRS $6 million of revenue by not reporting $16 million in income and for that he has to go to jail for 47 months as a 69-year-old man stripped of essentially everything he has built over a lifetime only to beg and plea like a dog in the end so that he won’t die in prison. There’s a little bit more to the Manafort case but essentially, he was busted just because of his association with President Trump by a FBI investigation in search of a crime. When they couldn’t find one that implicated President Trump they prosecuted him for what they did find, issues that would have went uncharged had Paul Manafort never been involved as a campaign manager for the future president. However, that same FBI under the care of special investigator Robert Mueller who had just recently been denied the job as Director of the FBI was able to spend more than $25 million on a political witch hunt to go after Manafort and many other Trump associates kicking down the doors to Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal lawyer, running General Flynn through a career ruining process as well as many others, yet no jail time is proposed to Mueller for the same type of fraud that the courts against Manafort proposed. Why is that?

Of course, we all know the rhetorical answer, the entire Manafort case is a gross abuse of power by a government that is out of control. The FBI had become weaponized to protect a below the line status quo and the intention was to ruin the Trump presidency and spit in the face of half the nation that legitimately elected him by creating a false narrative and blaming a hostile country with the GDP of a rattlesnake, as if Russia could do anything on the world stage that might actually be harmful, with no money to perform the task. The FBI and their accomplices didn’t care if they started WWIII with hostile nations like Russia, Iran or North Korea so long as President Trump was pushed out of office so they could still have their hour-long lunch breaks and 30% more pay raises over civilian markets by keeping any sort of change away from them.

I say it all the time and will continue to do so, if Manafort is the bench mark for who should go to jail for crimes, then everyone from Robert Mueller to Hillary Clinton should be going to jail for the same. Certainly, at the very least FBI chiefs such as Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, and James Comey should—it was their work to blatantly push for the $25 million special prosecution in the first place to fulfil a purely political objective and tamper with an American election in favor of their wives’ sensibilities. In Comey’s case as a typical beta male, his wife runs his household and she was a Hillary Clinton supporter. So to make her happy and his network of socialites within the Beltway culture he acted against the nature of America’s political system to overthrow an election by abusing his office. Who thinks that Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page and Peter Strzok acted alone in their own crimes? Hillary Clinton was guilty beyond doubt yet under the care of Peter Strzok evidence was destroyed, immunities given and illegal spying and witness tampering was going on. And his bosses knew about it, that is why James Comey was fired by Trump as the Director.

Millions and millions of dollars were wasted not only on the Mueller investigation which was completely politically motivated, but on hiding the crimes of the FBI aligning themselves with the Democrat party to get Hillary Clinton elected. There seems to be an assumption among all those government employees that they are not guilty because so many of them participated in the crime. That the only difference between them and Paul Manafort is that he was an individual and they were a collective and that their crime is hidden behind the sheer numbers of participants. The assumption that they can’t be busted because they themselves are the government and there are simply too many people to prosecute is at the core of their behavior. That accounts for the smugness of these government criminals, they don’t believe that they can be prosecuted and their actions show their raw arrogance and disregard for justice, or the money they wasted in the process.

Remember Lois Lerner who as a big chief at the IRS used that agencies collection powers to strong-arm Tea Party groups. I remember that case well because I was drug into it myself. If the IRS could have found any dirt on me you can bet I would have received the Paul Manafort treatment just through my associations with the Liberty Township Tea Party that was at the center of that case and my friend Justin Binik-Thomas. Yeah, I’ve tried these shoes on before so I have quite clear clarity on the matter. This isn’t the first time I’ve seen the federal government grossly abuse its power and the resources they have confiscated from the electorate to manipulate the political tide of our nation. I’m not in jail because I live a squeaky-clean life and if people abuse my freedom, I have a tendency toward violence. So I’m not as easy of a target as Paul Manafort who did live a checkered life that was easy to prosecute. But the ideas are the same, if Manafort hadn’t helped Trump in the summer of 2016 win the delegate count ahead of the RNC convention, he wouldn’t be in jail now. He’d just be another white-collar criminal like most of the Beltway culture is, and he’d still be invited to Washington D.C. parties on Friday nights to mingle with the other social butterflies.

What happened to Paul Manafort and the government’s ability to toss him into jail for 47 long months is a gross abuse of power. It’s a shame that it was even allowed to happen. Paul Manafort may have defrauded the IRS and the government of money they expected to receive just by the sheer power of their offices, but they have abused the system far worse and wasted far more money than he did, yet they are not going to jail. Why the hell not? So what if 20 to 30 of the top players involved in trying to remove President Trump from office did go to jail? Would the system collapse on itself from the revelation that so many government officials are just dirty cops and massive abusers of power? Would knowing such a thing wreck our system of government far into the future? I don’t think so. Rather I would argue that by not prosecuting them far greater damage is being inflicted and that is the real crime here—not acting when its obvious that we must. Just in the case of Robert Mueller, he has defrauded the American treasury of over $25 million on a political witch hunt, completely motivated by political theater than the pursuit of justice. Why wouldn’t we treat him the same. The answer is, we should!

Chevrolet and Ford’s Circular Firing Squad

It continues to surprise me how many grown adults roll through their lives looking to advance through pity. It came to my mind quite sharply while watching a television commercial for Chevrolet showing that many Ford buyers were converting. While to people unbeknownst in the realm of reality might think that was a good thing the real story was completely avoided. Who cares that two American automobile companies in a circular firing squad were competing against each other? The real story is why that same Chevy truck isn’t being shipped to India, or Japan, or even South America. The real story isn’t that Chevy took away business from Ford, it’s that American car companies continue to lose to foreign competition. It would be much more meaningful if there were a commercial showing that car buyers were purchasing Chevy cars over Toyota or Honda. Foreign car markets continue to dominate in a field that should be exclusively an American specialty. After all, while cars are now abundant in the world, no place uses them to the degree that America does. That American cars are not first in the minds of drivers is a bigger concern and one that has many twists and turns of psychological imposition.

Without question it was the American automobile market that made them commonplace around the world. For a few decades it was American made cars that dominated the world stage and was yearned for by everyone. But the labor unions moved in and autonomy in innovation and delivery moved out while other countries entered the market and simply did better than the United States in manufacturing techniques and cost to quality the hammer of decision had been delivered and the big three automakers in America, Ford, GM and Chrysler found themselves on the outside looking in. The great city of Detroit which had been driven to growth by the global automaker started an eventual slide that would nearly take it off the map all together. That is the cost of bad decisions and stagnant thinking which can be viewed clearly when studying American car companies and the people who support them.

There is always a bit of arrogance when you speak with people who come historically out of those markets, an entitled feeling that we were great once, and that somehow, they were cheated because the world no longer valued them. That somehow the world was wrong in what it expected. But the truth is that the unions destroyed market innovation at the employee level. While the average Toyota worker in Japan ran to their restroom break, the American worker took their slow ass time and might even smoke a joint in the bathroom stall before returning back to the manufacturing line a half hour later. Little things like that in a company of tens of thousands add up into the final product and consumers can see and feel the difference.

When people who are just lazy in life wonder why they reach their later years getting run over by all the up and comers the problem isn’t the competition, it’s the lazy person themselves. The world wants to grow and move forward. It doesn’t want the restrictions of governments or even socialism. Only the lazy and unambitious are attracted to such things and at points in our life cycles, they may outnumber the strong and independent. But it is always the drive of the best and brightest that launch product and innovation into the global marketplace. When a consumer puts down their money for a gigantic purchase such as a new car, they aren’t buying the tradition of the name, which American car companies still seem to believe, they buy the best product. If a company cannot deliver value to a customer they’ll lose. Just as an employee will lose if they don’t continue to make themselves relevant to their employer, they’ll also be overrun by competitors who are hungry for knowledge and continue to grow intellectually much longer than the typical lazy person who wants the prestige of respect, but doesn’t want to do the work to continue to obtain it.

There is an assumption in the Chevy adds comparing themselves to Ford buyers that the rest of the world isn’t making cars. Let alone admitting that foreign markets are just much better in producing an automobile product. When presenting themselves to American markets their strategy is to just not admit that anybody else is out there and hope that their name might be enough to carry consumers into an American car purchase, and that is precisely why they are being destroyed by foreign competition. I mean who values the name of a Ford or Chevy over a BMW or Mercedes? There are still American patriots who will buy the Cadillac over the Mercedes but not nearly as many as there should be. That is the fault of the car companies to simply refuse to acknowledge their status in life and assume that their names meant more to the public than they really did.

How many people in life roll into their later years hoping that the ambitions they performed at the start of their careers would carry them through into their retirements. They are the kind of people who say, “boy, I did this or that back when I was in my 30s and I was really hot stuff.” But the lack the courage to continue to push themselves and take personal risks which inspire growth then wonder why everyone is passing them up. Those are the types of minds running General Motors and Ford these days, and is precisely why everyone is beating the hell out of them in the automobile market. It’s why Detroit declined out of relevancy being run in the ground by Democrat politicians who want to redistribute wealth created in the glory days of risk and reward thinking that names and titles would hold value well into the future. But the truth is that those things only hold value for about one generation. After that, new names come about out of competition and if you aren’t the best, you will likely be passed over in life, and that is the way it is.

A lot of people are timid by nature and by force they do one or two things great in their life because when you are young, you have to in order to get anywhere. But as soon as they get comfortable and achieve a level of respect among their peers, they lose their edge in thinking. And clearly a collection of such minds is running the American car companies. They are not attracting top talent to their companies and when they do get them, they aren’t keeping them. But the competition is, and it shows in the overall product. Chevy would have had a much better marketing approach if they could show that consumers were buying their product over Toyota and Honda. That would mean something because it is those companies who own the most market share. Beating Ford is like beating up a brother at the dinner table then calling yourself the master of the world. But the minute you step onto your front lawn mouthing off how tough you are, some other kid punches you in the mouth and shows you what the world really thinks of your toughness. America used to make the best cars, but not anymore. And until they change their attitude from the top to bottom, they never will.

We May Have to Fight Socialism with Deadly Force–H.R.8 shows just how radical our current government is

So why in the hell would we ever give up any gun rights to a government as corrupt as this one. Just look at the news and what most establishment figures are trying to do to President Trump and his family just because he won an election. And he’s on the front page of every news outlet in the world, so he’s high profile enough to warrant good judgment against such an action. However, the truth of an out of control government is obvious in their hatred and radicalism in how they are treating him. That same House of Representatives during a circus week of the Michael Cohen testimony passed a gun bill which was an extreme overreach by that same corrupt government. We have to remember that the entire reason Cohen was there to testify was because the government kicked down his door in search of a crime and what they did find they pushed to jail him for 3 years for which he is presently seeking relief from prosecutors. To my view of things based on not only the Federal Constitution, but the Ohio Constitution from which I live, Cohen should have defended himself during that break in with a firearm because the government was abusing his individual rights. So it is laughable that the same government passed their H.R.8 legislation that has been brewing for a long time, and that they passed it with no media coverage in the middle of the Cohen testimony.

The Democrat-controlled US House of Representatives passed what they’re optimistically calling a universal background check bill. But there’s much more to HR 8 than just mandated FFL transfers.

The bill would also ban handgun sales to adults under 21 years old, allow for unlimited transfer fees, and criminalize handing a firearm to another person while shooting outside a designated range.

My comment to all the elements of H.R.8 is that it is a laughable overreach by a government that doesn’t respect us as people. Who the hell cares what a bunch of loser liberal legislators think about the “safety” of people? These are the death dealers who support the open murder of millions of babies right out of a mother’s womb, and support the poisoning of the American people by legalizing drugs and supporting open borders allowing drug traffickers easy access to American markets. They certainly aren’t qualified to determine whether or not any of us can transfer a gun to a neighbor or family member. Guns are more needed than ever to keep corrupt elements of radical liberals from intruding into our lives more than they do now. What congress proposed in H.R.8 is simply reprehensible. Lucky for us in the short-term, President Trump will veto this bill and those like it. But what about a day when he doesn’t sit in the Oval Office? In those days its likely that we’ll need guns of all kinds to fight off a government that seriously desires to overreach their mandate and control every aspect of our lives, and we can’t have that in any aspect.

Listen to the idiocy of what some of these newly elected radicals are saying they want to do to us from a congressional perspective. During the Obama administration he experimented with attracting radical cells of people from other countries that immigrated into the United States in large numbers which actually allowed them to get elected into congress with legitimate voting. I have no problem with legal immigration methods, but the people coming better be ready to accept the rules of living in America and not seek to change the nature of it to reflect the garbage they came from. Its nothing new, but what is, is their admission to it, but these congress people are openly advocating for socialism and that is something that we all have to fight with deadly force—because what they are talking about is the confiscation of private property and the redistribution of it to those unworthy—who did not earn it, which is a gross violation to everything American law is supposed to represent. The very foundation of the American Constitution is to protect private property and secure individual rights. Not to surrender those things to the “greater good” as defined by radicals who managed to get themselves elected into government.

Clearly the intent of most American Constitutions at the level of the states and of course in the Bill of Rights of the federal government is that guns are there to shut down a corrupt government and replace it with something else and given the behavior of this current congress, I would say that we are at that point. As long as we can stop them with President Trump’s veto pen, we can still trust the law. But the moment Trump isn’t in office then we need guns to fight off the government which has become hostile and extremely corrupt. That isn’t the talk of radicalism, but sense as dictated by the laws of our country. Nobody cares about the transfer of gun rights and background checks, especially under circumstances of war. Guns are there for the days when the law fails, and when the government is kicking down the doors of political rivals to leverage election results into the favor of hostile congresses then its time to use guns to preserve liberty, and there is nothing wrong with that.

Radical leftists in congress do not get to use the law to gain power but then to use the law to protect themselves from the consequences. They cannot manipulate their way into office, gain power, then expect nobody to twist the law as a counter measure to repeal their hostile actions. Only in this case, using guns as a measure of individual defense of private property isn’t a twist of the law, but a mandate. But when it becomes obvious that the intent of their actions is hostility and conquest, then violence is the next step behind a breakdown of the law. The congressional approval of H.R.8 is a hostile act and the law as proposed under any condition of intention is a violation of American rights. The same government that kicked in the door of President Trump’s personal lawyer to squeeze him into revealing a crime, any crime, that might remove the president from office is the same government that is attempting to say that they must conduct a background check on the sale of a firearm to anybody. Or how any individual can use that gun away from a target range. And that’s not how things work folks. That government is the reason we need guns. They don’t get to legislate our defense from them. They can’t have it both ways, they don’t get the power to intrude on people’s lives and the legal means to protect themselves from the ramifications of their aggression. That concept is absurd, not even in the realm of possibility.

Context is everything and under normal conditions gun owners should enjoy their use of guns, go to the target range and shoot them, and trade them among each other for the fun and liberty of the sport. But under all that action is the necessity to use guns as a last resort for when the law fails and governments must be replaced by force into a body of functional governance. The failed government does not have the right to decide who gets to have a gun and for those who do, how they use it. That is not how the rules work and we should all be insulted that H.R.8 was even given enough merit to put a pen to paper. It’s an insult to us all and the ramifications of that insult have not yet been communicated properly to the perpetrators involved in the most heinous crime of all, the intrusion of individual liberty and desire to suppress all of mankind for the whimsical power grabs of the political left.

Liberals and their Dumb Trains

I personally love trains, especially the high speed type. For a few weeks in 2018 I lived in Canterbury, England had was very appreciative of their train system. My wife and I used it heavily to get back and forth from London and we even took the Eurostar at nearly 200 mph into Paris. Trains are good in Europe, but I never had any illusions about them, they are not superior to personal automobiles and airplanes, not by a long shot. The reason I enjoyed the trains in Europe was because the roads were so small and that most of the activity is centered into their metropolitan areas. The cars in Europe as a result are too small and the personal autonomy of transportation is much neglected. So if you are in Europe and want to get somewhere, or even in the orient, trains are great. But there is nothing like transportation in the United States with big cars, big highways, and lots of things to do between cities. However, liberals have an obsession with high-speed rail. It’s no mystery as to why, being liberals, they believe in centralized control so the European setup is very appealing to them. But it will never work in America even among those with liberal sensibilities because our culture is too autonomous for them. Nobody wants to ride on a slow train and sit next to other people if they don’t have to. When given a choice, people want to do their own thing and they don’t want to share space with other people. That is the natural state of all human beings.

Way back when I first started this blog site the debate over placing a street car into downtown Cincinnati was all the rage and I predicted back then that if they did build it, that nobody would ride it. I saw it the other day operating and it was mostly empty, and it was terribly slow. I walked faster than it moved. It was very embarrassing, even though I knew people wouldn’t ride the thing, I wanted to be wrong. Several years ago before it opened I had a nice conversation with an elderly couple at The Museum Center reminiscing about the street cars that were in Cincinnati long ago and they were eager to see their return. We spoke at the exhibit in the History part of the museum where they had an old street car on display, it was part of a time during their courtship and they thought of them in romantic terms, where people dressed in fedora hats, women wore skirts that went past their knees and people treated each other respectfully while reading the paper while traveling. I could relate, I love the western expansion era and the morality of the gunslingers of the old west of 1870, but I’m not about to trade in a 400 HP car for a single horse either. Science is great. I am not looking backward except to learn from history. The trains of the past can stay there.

To many it is a mystery as to why liberals want trains instead of automobiles and airplanes and of course the easy answer is that they want to push people out of the suburbs and into cities controlled by Democrats. They want to tax gasoline and suburban lifestyles to the point where people flock into the cities to live again, where trains will make transportation easy and centralized. That is what the OTR project in Cincinnati was all about, to create a hipster paradise of communal good and culture—a liberal’s dream. But the reality is far from it, people like space if they can get it, and they want to use that space quickly. They don’t want to sit next to other people if they don’t have to and they don’t want to talk to them if it can be avoided. The push by people into the suburbs of America is essentially to get away from liberals who are always trying to stick their noses into everyone’s business and if those liberals violate private property barriers, they may get shot. People enjoy their natural autonomy, something that isn’t offered in Europe or Asia. But in America personal freedom is king, and it always will be now that people have tasted it. That genie cannot be put back into the bottle, as much as Democrats would love to.

The future of transportation is air travel clearly. Trains are too slow, transportation into space will bring continents together like never before making oversea trips take an hour instead of 12. And if something like a train is desired, it will be the Hyperloop, where 200 MPH would be considered slow. City to city travel on a Hyperloop could travel up to 1000 MPH and could largely be underground to avoid complicated zoning problems. That is the way to connect San Francisco to Los Angeles, or L.A. to Las Vegas, by Hyperloop, not high-speed rail. Like I reported, the Eurostar in France was great, and speedy. But it’s still old technology, now easily outdated. There are better and faster ways to get around and if given options, people will use them. A Hyperloop between Paris and London would take less than an hour. Sure you wouldn’t get to see the wonderful French countryside while journeying, but so what. Liberals think that they could duplicate that experience of traveling through California’s farmland but the problem is unlike in France which had just recently been conquered by Germany during World War II, farmers in the states don’t want to give up their land for a stupid train. In France they didn’t mind nearly so much, because they were essentially a conquered people, making all these trains built not so intrusive when compared to German troops in the not so distant past.

If there was ever proof that liberalism is stuck in some archaic mindset it is in their embrace of such ridiculous concepts such as mass transit trains as any kind of solution to modern transportation challenges. Their insistence on these train projects and internal city street cars demonstrates how little they know about human needs and how radical they are in changing what they do. Liberals represented in America by Democrats don’t like the way people are and they want to change them, that is all they care to do about anything. Train travel is an artificial constraint on the autonomy of people, and in the kind of managed societies that liberals crave, with them in charge of course, travel by rail is very attractive. But only for them, certainly not for the consumer. In an age where everything is getting faster, liberals are insistent on slowing down which is making them much less relevant by the day. With my firsthand experience listening to them speak so glowingly about train travel demonstrates just how vast their ignorance on the subject really is. I said it about the street car in Cincinnati many years ago and I’ll say it again about any form of high-speed rail now, the concept is dead. Only leaps in technology is something to be embraced, tech like the Hyperloop and personal space travel are even options that hold any kind of financial significance. And that reality is something that no Democrat is ready to deal with, which of course puts them on the outside looking in.
