“Interstellar” Epiphany and Soundtrack Review: A 50th Anniversary at Virgin Galactic’s first space resort

I had an epiphany that my wife and I were stepping off a Virgin Galactic vessel into the first hotel of their design floating above the earth with the horizon spinning outside of a massive lobby window. It is Virgin’s first hotel in space established as a resort location rivaling the Atlantis vacation destination in the Bahamas complete with an indoor water park covered with large glass windows looking out into the vastness of space. The lobby was lush and expensive with exotic restaurants all offering outrageously epic views out every window. The moon is always full and casts a constant—haunting shadow through every object and mixed with the brilliant light shining off the earth is a bluish hue that has never been replicated by any light on the home planet. It’s our 50th wedding anniversary and we have a $5000 bottle of wine to mark the year of this writing to celebrate our first week-long vacation in space. We have worked hard and deserve to pamper ourselves with a very expensive outing that will mark many years of persistence. In the lobby is playing the old soundtrack to the classic 2014 movie Interstellar, which has by then become the standard of music referencing space. It was that award-winning Christopher Nolan movie that changed it all and set the tone for the second world-wide space race causing Hilton, Marriott and Virgin Galactic to build the first space stations catering to tourism. Virgin was the first to achieve it.

The majestic views out of the multiple windows demand the music of Interstellar because nothing else would be sufficient. The hotel operators just play constantly the old Hans Zimmer soundtrack to help alleviate the shock of being grounded so firmly to the floor as the view outside swirls around like a marry-go-round. It takes some getting used to for some people; some actually throw up with the disorienting effect of the earth’s horizon spinning around so rhythmically. There are trash cans stationed along the pathway toward the check-in counter large enough for visitors to dump their stomachs in the most graceful way possible. A cleaning crew quickly removes the contents so not to alter the smell of space—that rusty metal odor mixed with the fragrance of lobby vegetation that is intended carefully to greet guests as they step off the shuttle from their journey below.

We walk to the counter as track 7 on that enchanting soundtrack plays with organs chiming to the tempo of a clock’s second hand—the earth still swirling, the light from the moon and sun moving around the room casting shadows in all directions hauntingly. Bright overhead lights on the ceiling between more large windows cast stabilizing light so that the lobby looks to be the only stable element of a universe in chaos outside—which adds to the otherworldly sensation of a species raised on a planet where the sun rises and falls every 12 hours and the horizon is always fixed. Here, the sun is always out, the moon is always full, and the horizon never stills—it spins perpetually so to provide an earth like gravity for the visitors—some who are already in their swimming suits and heading for the massive domed Water Park behind the check-in counter.

My wife and I aren’t sick; the music brings our minds to ease with a familiarity that we know well. We have listened to that soundtrack every week for the last 25 years and know its notes by heart. Before checking in we just listen to it while we sit in one of the lobby seats and watch the Virgin Galactic shuttle pull away from the docking station and head back to earth with its navigational thrusters silently pushing it back into a declination orbit to Spaceport America—our home launch point. In another three hours that same ship will be back with more visitors and within 30 minutes another ship will arrive from Spaceport America and fifteen minutes after that, one from Space Port Japan, then one from Spaceport Europe. Because Virgin Galactic has brought the Internet to Africa—they now have one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Soon they will have their own spaceport in right in the middle of the Congo.

My wife and I head to our rooms and prepare for dinner. We spend five solid hours drinking our expensive bottle of wine sitting on our hotel bed watching the world turn—literally. And we cherish that this event has finally been made possible after many years of dreaming. The whole time we listen to our well-played soundtrack for the several hundred thousandth time—Interstellar, as we have always loved it and likely always will.

That soundtrack actually only came out a few days ago, on November 17, 2014, so my son-in-law rushed to Barnes and Nobel to get it for he and my daughter the moment it was unloaded from the delivery truck. They spent their evening listening to it while eating Chinese food from their favorite restaurant—and they gave me a copy. They have already seen the movie twice and are looking for ways to see it many more times. In what’s being touted as a first-of-its-kind promotion, Paramount and AMC Theatres are offering movie patrons in North America the chance to see Christopher Nolan‘s Interstellar as many times as they want, for one price.

As with any deal, there are rules. Those who want to participate must be members of the AMC Stubs program, which has an annual fee of $12.

The unlimited tickets will be available for sale to AMC Stubs members at 330 AMC theater across the country, including AMC Imax locations. The price will range from $19.99 to $34.99, depending upon the location (currently, the average cost of a movie ticket price in the U.S. is $8.08.

Interstellar requires for most people many viewings just to understand everything that is happening. Many critics of the film on their first viewings were used to a more conventional film experience and didn’t know what to make of some of the sound issues. As I said in my review—I think I was the first and only one to date to point it out—the sound in Interstellar was entirely on purpose. Christopher Nolan wanted there to be times where the events overwhelmed the sound made by the actors—because in real life—that happens often.

“I’ve always loved films that approach sound in an impressionistic way and that is an unusual approach for a mainstream blockbuster, but I feel it’s the right approach for this experiential film,” Christopher Nolan said, speaking for the first time in detail about the use of sound in his new film.

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/behind-screen/christopher-nolan-breaks-silence-interstellar-749465

It is because of this approach to sound that the Interstellar soundtrack was so exceptionally good—and is why it will become the inspiration for all that I described above. When my kids gave me the first copy of the soundtrack and I played it for much of the day on Tuesday and Wednesday listening to it many, many times—it was easy to conclude that it was a masterpiece. I remember the music being great during the movie, but listening to it by itself, it was simply phenomenal as it steps up and well beyond anything that’s ever been attempted. The closest that I can think of is Philip Glass—but the Hans Zimmer approach comes with a much bolder, and narrative link to the future by drawing so historically on the past.

Blasting through the track on the soundtrack titled “S.T.A.Y” all that I began this writing above occurred with the epiphany. Many of the world’s problems seemed so miniscule and the minds that made them that way even less relevant. I could literally reach out and touch that future space station/hotel as if I were there, as if I could smell it, taste it and walk across its vast floors with Richard Branson still alive and standing in the corner welcoming his guests with long flowing locks still beyond his shoulders with a smile from ear to ear.

At dinner in my epiphany there was a guest who played in the center of a vast dinning hall with a clear picture of the moon out the distant window—again spinning around with rhythmic precision upon a large glass piano lit from beneath with blue lights that made it look like it was made out of ice. That guest was an elderly Hans Zimmer playing the Interstellar soundtrack live with a deeply personal concert, graced too with a smile from ear to ear knowing that it was his soundtrack that helped build this palace of achievement in defiance of the earthly stupidity which attempted to shackle man’s ankles to earth forever. His music helped free those shackles to usher in this entirely new age of dreamers, fortune hunters and lovers of science and possibility. It was and would be the best dinner of our lives. Happy 50th Anniversary to us—and it was.

Building Star Trek’s U.S.S. Enterprise: How to create 10 of them, not just 1 with Objectivism

Dan over at Build the Enterprise.org made national news last week when Yahoo News featured his 20 year plan to build an actual U.S.S. Enterprise that costs approximately $50 billion a year for the next 20 years at a total cost of $1 trillion dollars. (CHECK IT OUT!) Even though that is a huge price tag in a country with an already $15 trillion-dollar deficient, he justifies the cost by pointing out that in 2008 the United States spent nearly that much on the controversial Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP). Most people can agree who are not involved with politics that many of the bailouts the government spent money on during this depression era economy have been a complete waste, and the money was more or less tossed away with no R.O.I., so why not commit our science and military assets to the construction of an actual U.S.S Enterprise to begin an actual jump into a renewed space race?

Dan has it all figured out regarding how to engage in this massive project. His timeline has the first 9 years dedicated to research of the technology needed to build the project, with component testing followed by 11 years of manufacture and construction in space. At the conclusion of this assembly period the Enterprise will be ready for a moon flyby and be perfectly ready to begin routine 3 month flights to Mars. The benefit of Dan’s Enterprise design as opposed to the traditional NASA approach is that this Enterprise version will allow full 1g gravity for its 1000 occupants using ion propulsion electrically based from a nuclear generator to transport from the Earth to Mars and back again in 250 days. This means that the physical deterioration typically endured on the human body during long space flights will be eliminated allowing space travelers to roam about in an environment that is not much different from how they typically work and indulge in recreation today. For many of the U.S.S. Enterprise travelers their residences, work and leisure would be in a kind of giant shopping mall experience. They would eat, sleep and walk about just as they would on earth, and this would solve tremendous duration problems currently experienced by astronauts in zero g environments.

Dan’s plan is fantastic, and should be explored seriously by private investment. This would be a worthy goal for companies like Google, Facebook, and other giant corporations that have been able to generate tremendous amounts of capital. I disagree with Dan on two basic things which he has overlooked, primarily because he’s an engineer and naturally doesn’t deal with political science—that no government should be involved in this endeavor and that taxes should never be raised, which he proposes.

During this 20 year span of building the U.S.S. Enterprise the people of the entire world need an entirely new philosophy from which to think from. A philosophy is a kind of play book like any football player understands–it’s the way a sports player attacks the game as designed by the head coach. The philosophy of the team and its ability to adapt to changing circumstances will often be the exclusive factor between success and failure on the field of play. In the game of life, the same is true.

Currently mankind’s philosophy is rooted in Plato, and Immanuel Kant. This must change to one based more on Aristotle and refined by Ayn Rand. It will take a massive shift in human consciousness to accept these changes and avoid two hundred more years of stagnation, which is our current path because politicians and world governments think that Star Trek is for entertainment and the minds of geeks, as they hold onto their non rationality based philosophies given to them by Kant.

The process of this happening is already underway. The Ayn Rand Institute is publishing the extensive work of Ayn Rand which is selling well. It has taken most of a century already for Americans to finally begin to accept her work, and her philosophy of Objectivism is just the kind of national strategy that would bring about not just one U.S.S. Enterprise, but many. There is absolutely no reason the United States should settle to have just one of these ships, but ten. But to have them we would also have to reinvent the way our current government in the United States operates. We would have to reinvent education, political science; the emphasis on our wealth creation and many other factors for it to work, but ironically the blueprint was already created by Ayn Rand nearly a century ago. Click here for an introduction into Objectivism.

I don’t propose Objectivsim as a personal preference, but as a viable solution. Dan needs a nuclear reactor to provide power for his Enterprise. America and the world need Objectivism as the thought process to build Enterprise deep space vehicles and space stations. It’s simply a thought structure that is needed to execute the sum desired.

As to the design of the Enterprise opposed to other designs, it is the U.S.S. Enterprise that is so well-known to millions and is a part of the public consciousness. It is true that other designs could be created, but why? Science fiction has already done the work of concept building, and society has come to recognize it. It is no different from NASA using Jules Vern’s classic novel From the Earth to the Moon to model their approach to space craft design over 70 years before the first rocket. Using Star Trek as the model for further space development is perfectly acceptable, and highly justified. The country that creates these U.S.S. Enterprises holding over 1000 people per flight to colonize space, manufacture goods outside of earth’s atmosphere, and mines for rare metals and other resources on other moons and planets solves many of our current worldly problems in a very short time. A vehicle the size of the U.S.S. Enterprise could hold not just one manufacturing facility within it, but many. The future of zero z manufacture and science is of utmost importance, and extremely practical.

For all the sci-fi geeks out there who want to see this happen in their lifetime I suggest you read Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and The Fountainhead just as you’d read any work of fiction for Star Trek. Forget what your teachers and others tell you about Rand, because there are many functioning in our society who are just as scared of the future as there was during the dark ages of Europe. We are about to experience a tremendous breakthrough that hasn’t been seen since 1492 where adventure and discovery will change the human experience forever. But there were many who insisted that the earth was flat and that sea monsters would eat all ships that left the horizon. And ship building design didn’t change at all for another 400 years. The politicians, teachers, and leaders of science currently on a government pension want to keep the world closed off from new discovery because they are functioning from the failed philosophy of Immanuel Kant and this will hold the human race to the earth for another 400 years of imprisonment.

I spend a lot of time at this site showing readers how cancer could be cured right now, how food could never run out, how energy could be properly harnessed if not for the interference of politicians and world leaders who have broken ideas about how life should be because they are functioning from the wrong philosophy. A few weeks ago there was a similar sensation on Yahoo News about the next generation of flying car, which was cool, but didn’t come close to the great design of Paul Mollar out in California. Paul Mollar’s Skycar is a design that has been around for two decades and it works. But he can’t get our government to get behind him because of politics. There is a lot of money tied up in the current automotive industry, and nobody has the political will to upset the apple cart. So a great idea has been put on the back burner until society grows up, and into the idea of a personal car that can take off in your driveway and land wherever you want it to. This is because people in society are functioning from the wrong philosophy. Objectivism is the philosophy needed to expand our technological and mental barriers. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE REAL SKYCAR.

The same fate will befall Dan’s fantastic plan of building a U.S.S. Enterprise as has happened to Paul Mollar’s Skycar, the political will is not there because too many people function from the wrong philosophy. Before the first bit of research can be done on the U.S.S. Enterprise, America would have to change its current path of thinking away from Kant and into Rand, or to put it more technically, away from Plato, and more toward Aristotle. That is the key to being able to arrive at a space port in the middle of Iowa to leave earth and arrive at a future U.S.S. Enterprise waiting at an orbiting dock to leave for a Marriott hotel on the planet Mars within the next hundred years. The future is there, and great ideas like Dan’s are springing up and are conceivably possible. But it is our current human philosophy that is the major impediment, and that must change before any new developments can occur on the long human quest to push the limits of the imagination and arrive at a place of new understanding and high adventure!

My Dream Teacher: A divided country–50 + 1

Much has been said about what kind of teachers we don’t want in public education at this site. But we don’t often think about what kind of teachers we do want. Well, one fine example of the kind of teacher I would like to see employed in my district is Kathleen Lyday of Grandview Elementary School or rather the way she is represented at the letter shown below and presented on Gary Jeff Walker’s page at 700 WLW.

http://www.700wlw.com/pages/onair_garyjeff.html

This letter is said to have been sent to President Obama, but as it turns out, it looks to have been falsified—just a wishful dream of conservative leaning patriots yearning for a teacher who has some courage to stand up to modern-day tyranny. Whether it’s a hoax or the truth, the words deserve to be read as they do paint the picture wonderfully of a growing sentiment that is boiling like a volcano about to erupt in America.

The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500

Mr. Obama:

I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.

You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain-dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?

Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia …. You didn’t show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!

You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey …… You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What’s the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.

You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.

What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn’t!

Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that’s $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?

I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.

I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.

Sincerely,

Ms Kathleen Lyday
Fourth Grade Teacher
Grandview Elementary School

Unfortunately, I do not believe that Kathleen Lyday of Grandview Elementary School wrote the letter seen above, because such a thing would be too good to be true. Instead, reality says that most of the teachers working at Grandview as well as most public schools all across the country have allowed themselves to be divided up into specific bloc voting groups dictated by machine politics and lack the courage to have thoughts of their own. Most likely, Katheleen Lyday will tend to vote the way other women in her age group vote, because she sees herself as “one of the girls.” Or perhaps she will vote the way her labor union suggests after looking over the insane amount of political material the union sends her to endorse candidates. And chances are, if Kathleen Lyday is a real teacher from Grandview Elementary School, she is planning to vote for Obama, not against him, so that he will steal more tax money from citizens all over America and give some of that money to the education sector of which she’s a part, as all the employees of the teaching profession open their mouths wide like baby birds in a nest awaiting their mother government to drop a worm in their starving mouths.

Yes, it was a great dream while it lasted—because these days such courage coming from a public employee is as realistic as the most extreme science fiction drawn in a comic book. In reality we are a divided country, and it will take a major awakening to bring the real Kathleen Lyday’s to the surface where fiction can eventually become a reality.

Tail of the Dragon: Press Release

After three years of work, my latest book, Tail of the Dragon is almost complete. As of this writing the novel is at the copy editor and art departments at American Publishing and galleys are soon to follow. The release of this novel still appears to be during the summer of 2012.

The press release below is close to how the final document will look and I am putting it up here at this time to share with my readers as they have followed the process along for many months now.

Tentative press release:

Eschewing authority, one man’s desperate search for freedom evolves into the greatest car chase in American history. It all started with a race to the White House.

In the exhausting presidential-election process, the American people are subjected to candidates’ self-serving hyperbole that threaten freedoms guaranteed by the United States Constitution. The Occupy Wall Street movement, the Tea Partiers, and ordinary voters from every walk of life all want the same thing: freedom from a dishonest government.

But what is freedom?

Nicknamed “The Tax-killer” for his work in fighting tax increases, author Rich Hoffman uses his own frequent altercations with the law to explore that very question. His latest fast paced novel, Tail of the Dragon, chronicles NASCAR-loving everyman Rick Stevens in his quest for freedom after a mundane lifetime of playing by the rules. One man–who challenges authority and incites the government’s wrath all the way to the White House–will discover the true meaning and price of freedom.

“In Tail of the Dragon,” explains Hoffman, “I found that the best way to get our minds around the concept of freedom is to have the characters break every conceivable law and see what happens. Rooted in a political world mirroring our own, it’s more than fiction, I call it faction.”

 

For an author interview, contact Jeff at bookpr@american-book.com. Hoffman is experienced in all forms of media and is sure to liven up your venue with wit, knowledge, and large doses of entertainment.

 

I’m excited about the release of this long-awaited book. The work has certainly been worth it. After reading the book about twenty times now I can honestly say that readers will be in for a unique treat that I’m happy to supply. But to quench the thirst that is building for the book’s official release I am putting links to many of the articles that I have written about Tail of the Dragon during this process to make it easy to review the material that has led to this amazing story.

Enjoy!

The Flying Tigers: An age of greatness that must return

In the picture above that is me in the fifth grade during 1979 right after the epic soapbox derby race that was a cliffhanger to the very end. My car stole the hearts of the spectators who witnessed that event on a hot summer day that year. But what many didn’t know or understand was how important to me that saw-toothed mouth was painted on the front of my car. As you can see dear reader my experience with the media goes back quite a few years and if you work at it you might be able to read the story of that spectacular day by enlarging the photograph of the article. The car itself was named The Beast because that was the year that Kings Island first opened their signature roller coaster which I instantly fell in love with. But the mouth on the front was from my favorite airplane in the Aerospace Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  Now before we continue on dear reader I ask for your attention and patience.  Take your time with this.  Read it all and watch the videos.  You will gain vast insight into what is happening around you to this very day.  What you will learn here will equal dozens of hours of college level history.  So Please make use of it!

My love of the P-40 Warhawk displayed so valiantly in Dayton goes back as far as I can remember, and I can vividly remember things from when I was 1 and 2 years old. The P-40 Warhawk was the signature plane flown by the famous Flying Tigers AVG group led by General Claire Chennault, a man I have always felt an affinity for. Chennault was a brilliant strategist, a natural leader, but was extremely abrasive to his superiors often participating in open conflict with them. These disputes with his military superiors led him to resign from the United States Army Corps with the rank of captain in the year 1937 after a rather brilliant career as organizer of the 1st Pursuit Group of the Army Air Corps acrobatic team the “Three Musketeers” where the group performed in the National Air Races. Later he became the pursuit aviation instructor at Maxwell Field of a team named “The Men on the Flying Trapeze.” Chennault had developed the rare ability to master strategy without compromising American horse sense a talent that infuriated his superiors, so he quit the Army.

But that wasn’t the end, Chennault would become far more famous and valuable as a special advisor to Generalissimo Chang Kai-shek of China as that country attempted to protect itself from the Japanese who were in the late 1930’s attempting to overrun China on a quest for natural resources. And to the north of China was the communists who were heavily funded by the Soviet Union and instigating a civil war within China. The situation was remarkably similar to what the United States would find itself in during the start of the next century where outside interests like George Soros is funding aggression against the United States indirectly while we are openly fighting enemies in Iran, Afghanistan and the invisible enemy of terrorism.  It’s a standard divide and conquer act by two enemies who work indirectly together for the mutual aim of destroying a rival.  In this case China was the target of both the communists and imperial Japan so they worked together to crush China from two fronts.  Sadly we all know that eventually China would be overrun by communism which it remains to this very day. In 1951 Chennault testified before the Senate Joint Committee on Armed Forces and Foreign Relations about the reason China was lost to Communist forces in 1951. Chennault after all his heroics in China during World War II had warned President Roosevelt and President Truman directly about the dangers of communism heading into China at the close of World War II, but both presidents were only focused on beating Japan, and it was their short-sighted commitments that caused the United States to pull out of China once the Japanese surrendered which led to the communists to surge in and overtake the government of China.

Sun Tzu to the Chinese is probably revered more highly than George Washington is to the United States. Chairman Mao used The Art of War to defeat Chiang Kai-shek. Chennault had worked closely with Kai-shek to hold off communism in China, but weak US policy after World War II lead to Mao taking over the country in 1949. Chennault warned of the possibility of future war with China in his WONDERFUL book Way of the Fighter published in 1949. In that book, which is now considered a rare book, Chennault predicted the trouble with Korea and Vietnam years before they occurred. The testimony did not sit well with the government, and they failed to act on Chennault’s warnings leaving China to wither under communist control which the United States would pay for dearly over the next 60 years.

To paint a picture of what that communist takeover was like for the people of China, which Chennault had fought so hard to prevent you can read vividly the description of events that occurred in the great book starting on page 505 of Joseph Campbell’s masterpiece called Oriental Mythology, published in 1962 and was part of four books he spent 12 years writing; he chronicles the beginning of communism in China quite startlingly. What follows are direct quotes from that book which is remarkably similar to the conditions America is finding itself in as President Obama signs the NDAA Bill in our modern age.
A man, aged twenty-two from Doi-Dura in th Amdo region was told by the Chinese that he required treatment to make him more intelligent. The Chinese at the time were telling Tibetans that they were a stupid inferior race and would have to be sup-planted by Russians and Chinese. They took blood tests of this man, his wife, and many others, and there are a number of corresponding reports from different parts of Tibet detailing the sort of operation to which this young man and his wife were the next day forced to submit. They were both taken to the hospital. “He was completely undressed, placed on a chair and his genital organs were examined. Then a digital rectal examination was carried out and the finger was agitated. He then ejaculated a whitish fluid and one or more drops fell on a glass slide which was taken away. After this a long pointed instrument with handles like those of scissors was inserted inside the urethra and he fainted with pain. When he came round the doctors gave him a white tablet which they said would give him strength. Then he received an injection at the base of the penis where it joins the scrotum. The needle itself hurt but the injection did not. He felt momentarily numb in the region until the needle was removed. He stayed ten days in the hospital and then a month in be at home….he had been married for only two years and prior to this treatment had very strong sexual feelings…Afterwards he had no sexual desire at all….”

Meanwhile, his wife “was undressed and tied down. Her legs were raised and outstretched. Something very odd which became painful was inserted inside the vagina. She saw a kind of rubber balloon with a rubber tube attached, the end of which was inserted inside the vagina. The balloon was squeezed and his wife felt something very cold inside her. This caused no pain and only the tube and not the balloon was inserted. She remained conscious throughout. Then she was taken to bed. The same procedure was carried on every day for about a week. Then she went home and stayed in bed for about three weeks,” and thereafter she had neither sexual feeling nor menstruation.

Such stories numbered in the thousands and were provoked by a belief that some groups of people should not breed, so measures were taken to ensure that blood lines would end.  There were many stories of political dissidents who just disappeared off the face of the earth completely once communism was dominate in China.  It wasn’t General Chennault’s fault however that communism prevailed. He arrived in China in 1937 to help train Chinese pilots to defend against Japanese aggression. By 1941 war with Japan was imminent with the United States and it was Chennault who lobbied President Roosevelt to provide airplanes and troops, neither of which the President would provide directly. Chennault was able to organize a volunteer group of 300 fighter pilots and ground crew to pose as tourists on their visas who were simply adventurers, mercenaries and unorthodox pilots who didn’t fit in well with the regimented control of military life. Roosevelt was finally able to send 100 P-40B Tomahawk aircraft because an order scheduled for Great Britain was cancelled. The Tomahawk was considered inferior in flight performance against German fighters. So China was getting from the United States 100 airplanes that nobody wanted, pilots and ground crew that were too undisciplined to serve in the armed forces, to fight a massive, highly organized enemy that ranged in the tens of thousands. The odds stacked against these soldiers of fortune were daunting.

The American Volunteer Group to my mind was no different from the privateers of the golden age of pirates. They were paid to kill and harass the enemy, the Japanese. The deal for the AVG pilots was a one-year contract with CAMCO to “manufacture, repair, and operate aircraft” at salaries ranging from $250 to $750 a month. Traveling expenses, thirty days leave with pay quarters, and $30 additional for rations were specified. The Chinese government paid $500 for each confirmed Japanese plane destroyed in the air or on the ground. An AGV pilot who strafed a Japanese airfield could become a very rich man since planes caught on a runway counted toward the bonus.

When Pearl Harbor was bombed it was the Flying Tigers who struck first, because they were the only group in position to act once war was declared. Under Claire Chennault the Flying Tigers maintained an extraordinarily high kill ratio of 40 to 1 against the enemy which was remarkable and they continued to have success being all that stood between Japan taking over China with ground occupation for over 6 months being desperately outnumbered. The AVG had virtually no backup supplies and had to repair their P-40’s with scrap material found in the local villages.

As usual, the government as a whole was way behind the curve regarding military action and once seeing how popular, and effective the AVG was sought to incorporate them into the military.  The AVG successes were not due to the brilliance of a single mind in Washington, and truthfully, if not for the work of The Flying Tigers the military may never have been able to win World War II.  Without capturing momentum in the Pacific the war in Europe would have been hopeless, and to a large extent it was General Patton who helped turn the tide there, another unconventional general who was brash, bold, and combative.  It could be argued that if General Chennault had been given command of the Pacific theater, there may have never been a need for an atomic bomb.  If Chennault had just a few more resources, he might have crushed Japan two years earlier.  It was the genius of a few who won the war.  It was the government looters who cost thousands upon thousands of lives.  Even when the AVG was brought into the official military operations under General Stilwell where General Chennault and Stilwell fought daily, Stilwell insisted on making life for Chennault a living hell because he was jealous of Chennault’s talents, so Stilwell purposely withheld supplies to Chennault’s group, which seriously compromised the strategic interests of China. But Chennault succeeded anyway in spite of the terrible working conditions and overwhelming odds.

The AVG proved to be superior pilots not just against the enemy but among other Americans. Tex Hill would become one of the most spectacular and amazing pilots of World War II. His war record which started on the dirt runways of the Flying Tigers would last through impossible odds till the end of the war.

The saw-toothed mouths put fear into the enemy in similar tactics that made the Pirates of the Caribbean so successful 300 years earlier as fortune hunters and warriors in search of their personal fortunes fought in the skies over China. And along the way the Flying Tigers saved China from Japanese occupation long enough to choke Japan of resources allowing the US Navy to gain a foothold in the Pacific and eventually overtake Japan. In many ways it was General Chennault and his heroic volunteer pilots who won the war against Japan.

I learned from the Flying Tigers that it’s not always the strongest, the fastest, the most technologically superior who wins. In the end it’s the one who thinks they can who wins because the Flying Tigers were not the greatest airplanes. The pilots were not the best trained in the highest education institutions. And it wasn’t money, because there wasn’t any money, except the bonuses paid by the Chinese government to the pilots. The United States wasn’t able to send supplies to the Flying Tigers during the entire war. The Flying Tigers were great because of the swagger they flew with and their ability to be self-reliant.

My wife and I had the fortune recently to watch a P-40 airplane being restored at the War Bird Museum in Clermont County. It was a privilege to crawl around the inside of one of the sacred P-40’s from the Flying Tiger era that I adore so much. Because to me, the P-40 is the superior plane from the World War II period not because of its performance, but because it flew like the pilots themselves, it was not uncommon for P-40’s to return home after running out of gas and sputtering miraculously on fumes for impossible distances, or being shot up with so many holes that staying in the air seemed impossible. The P-40’s seemed to behave like the pilots who flew them. It was a pleasure to touch the metal and feel the spirit of one of these majestic planes up close, and to associate with the people who were restoring every last bolt of a P-40 so that it can roam the skies again.

And that is the lesson for our age and what we can learn from our heroes of the past. The pretentious rulers of government were just as foolish then as they are now. General Stilwell purposely put an entire country at risk because he disliked General Chennault. President Roosevelt failed to pull the trigger early enough to officially assist China and push against communism before they had gathered enough strength to kill many more lives in the war that became World War II. And the United States Navy was lost until it managed to study the tactics of General Chennault and began to use some of the former Flying Tiger pilots to help train their other pilots on how to defeat the Japanese in the air. But the moment the war was over; President Truman left China to fend for itself and pulled out all United States support. This allowed communism to take over China and cause 60 years of terror from a former ally. It is because of this act that we had the Korean War and the war in Southeast Asia.

The construction of my soapbox derby car was my small homage to Claire Chennault and his Flying Tigers because to me they represent everything that makes America the greatest country on earth. Americans aren’t great because we have technologically superior firepower. We are not great because we have good universities. We are not great because we have infinite supplies of food, water, and other resources. Americans are great who still understand how to think outside-the-box and can fix a shot up fuel line with bubble gum and are willing to fly into the enemy with a damaged plan that is out of bullets, out of gas, and out of luck, and rip through the enemy plane because the steel in the P-40 is made of stronger stuff than the enemy. The enemy is crushed, and the American comes home miraculously, because in the science of probability, it flies by sheer willpower to return home to fly again. And when that American puts their boots in the dusty soil of a foreign runway, a $500 bonus is put into their pockets and once they wash off all the blood and the plane is repaired, they’ll go up again to shoot up the enemy and collect $500 more for as long as they can breathe air in their lungs.

Every day when I step into my garage I pay homage to my version of those Flying Tigers by saluting my soapbox derby car as it hangs from my ceiling. That saw-toothed mouth grins at me and cries out to “GO GET EM.’” That car still looks as good today as it did when it tore down the hill behind Fort Hamilton Hospital in the quest for victory in a race that attracted the attention of all of Hamilton on that hot summer day. And as the crowd cheered at the spectacle my mind was not on them, but on the heroes of the Flying Tigers and the honor I felt to pay homage to them in the heroics of sport. Like the P-40’s of another time, my soapbox still sits perched from high above my garage and gazes down waiting to be called into war once again, and if not physically in the war, it can teach a new generation how to taste the blood of an enemy and become hungry for its nutrients when the times dictate such action. Because these times are no different from those times, the only things that differ are the names of the characters and the dates for which they occur.

As an added bonus to all you have read here and wish to know more than the text, videos and pictures above have revealed, feel free to grab some pop corn and the beverage of your choice and watch the great John Wayne classic, The Flying Tigers released by Republic Pictures in 1942 with John Wayne playing loosely the part of Claire Chennault in a film that the nation needed to see at the time.  I have included it below to make it easy for you to see!  Because at that time there wasn’t any good news to be had after Pearl Harbor except what the Flying Tigers were doing. And this film will give you a wonderful perspective of what the America was like then that made greatness a commodity that was the envy of the world. Because of that jealousy, the communists have attempted a less direct attack on our culture which we are currently experiencing. Just click the movie and enjoy the entire thing, and soak up what America is supposed to be so you can learn how to make it so again.

Kepler — 22 is Discovered by NASA: The pivot point of human history

A marvelous discovery was made by NASA, a new earth like planet called Kepler -22 was discovered by the $600 million Kepler observatory and is the first hint of what is to come regarding space exploration.  It has long been suspected that there are many unknown planets in space that will be discovered by this new space oriented observatory.  To date it appears that there are 2,326 potential planets that have been discovered within the first 16 months of Kepler’s observations.  Darryl Parks of 700 WLW discusses this exciting planetary find in a very fun broadcast on his radio program where he makes the information of how this planet impacts the everyday person understandable for those who don’t normally pay attention to news of a cosmic significance. 

To see the original press conference from NASA you can watch it below.  NASA is a government organization that I believe is the only one that actually is a good investment of our tax dollars.   Where I complain and point out the many discrepancies of all other government programs and how they are inclined to always fail, NASA is the one really big bright spot that gives back to our society much more than we put into it.  For an article about just how much NASA has given us refer to the piece I wrote around the time of the last Space Shuttle mission:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/07/01/the-ghost-town-of-kerr-city-a-metaphor-for-planet-earth/

The rest of government seems obsessed with socialism which permeates virtually every activity and causes government to fail as a workable organization in virtually every capacity.  The reason governments enjoy socialism is because it benefits their ideology of being members of a superior political class.  Capitalism does not benefit career politicians.  Socialism does and that’s why they have been using it to virtually rob the wealth and resources of every organization they touch. 

I have reported to you dear reader many exciting developments in the realm of science that are very beneficial to a much brighter tomorrow for all of us.  The reason I am so angry with public education and the socialism that it teaches, as well as how government also subscribes to that failed political philosophy is because socialism is very corrosive to innovation, which are the needed components to continue with the kind of discovery that delivered us to this age of exploration and made Kepler observatory a reality in the first place.  To my mind socialism on a global scale is holding back Skycar travel which I have spoken in great detail about.  It is preventing regenerative medicine because socialism has made deals with the current pharmaceutical companies to maintain the current profit structure.  I have reported wonders in horticulture only to have socialism prevent food supply in agriculture.   I have spoken about the future of space travel and how deregulation at the level of NASA will create an explosion of off-world industry.  I have spoken at great length of the education options in innovation but the socialism of the teachers unions prevent innovation from being discussed.  I have spoken about how the archeology of our age is completely wrong and new discoveries are begging for attention, but the socialism of the university system prevents new information from being accepted into the fossil record.  I have demonstrated completely unexplored islands in the Pacific Ocean that hold keys to human civilization’s past, that are not even officially explored scientifically, I have brought to light the fossil record of just my home state of Ohio and how a species of giant human has been unearthed, yet the socialism of the universities and museums are not sure how to report the new findings since they don’t fit into established theories.  You can read some of these articles below for review.  (YES, I WROTE THEM ALL)

PRIVATIZATION OF SPACE!

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/the-space-race-is-just-beginning-as-the-space-shuttles-end/

Even though many who read here know this site as an anti-tax site, as an education reform site, as a whistle-blower site, my anger at all those government entities which are the targets of my complaints are because they stand in the way of scientific understanding and invention.  I see them as standing in the way of where mankind is, and where it needs to go and I am at war with their ignorance.  Even if I am the only member of that war on my side I will gladly take on every ignorant socialists there is because they are in my way to arriving at the human evolution that is our destiny. 

The discovery of Keplar – 22 is a big deal.  To put it in perspective, Keplar – 22 demonstrates that there are other earth-like planets out there, and the human race can continue on when earth ends, which it will eventually.  There is no question in my mind that much of the strange archeology our society has discovered, has it’s roots in a civilization much like ours who around 100,000 years ago saw earth from one of these sister planets that we share in this small arm of the Milky Way that is 600 to 1000 light years across and decided to attempt to explore our planet.  To understand how big everything really is and to begin to wrap your mind around inter-dimensional travel, watch this video:

Those other planets sent beings to check out earth, to land and interact with our culture at that time just like we are planning at this very moment to visit Kepler – 22.  If we could, we would.  There is no doubt in my mind that these other planets who are probably 2000 to 10,000 years more advanced than we are now have figured out how to travel to deep space and were able to visit us.  They explored us for their own benefit and returned back to their home planet to report what they saw here.  But while they were here, just like we will when learn to travel in the same fashion, they have a natural effect on the cultures they study just by being there. 

If you want to understand how space travel will evolve you can learn a lot by this documentary.  The last quarter of that documentary talks specifically about interstellar travel, the kind of travel that we will have to uncover before we can ever entertain traveling to places like Kepler – 22.  And it is possible, and we will figure it out, as sure as you are reading this.  In the documentary they introduce tachyons which are a hypothetical subatomic particle that always moves faster than light. In the language of special relativity, a tachyon would be a particle with space-like four-momentum and imaginary proper time. A tachyon would be constrained to the space-like portion of the energy-momentum graph. Therefore, it cannot slow down to subluminal speeds.
You can read more about tachyon’s here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachyon

There is no question in my mind that civilization in our own past used anti-gravity devices to build massive structures all over the earth.  Somewhere along the line of human evolution we lost this knowledge.  If we understood it once, we can relearn the skill and uncover it once again.  When this happens escape velocity off earth will no longer be a problem.  And once we can perform science in space and travel becomes cheaper there, exploration into tachyon technology will be within reach, and from there, we will be able to travel to Kepler – 22 and all the new planets that the Kepler observatory is about to discover. 

The reason that societies fail however is they generally collapse on themselves when they become too top-heavy with government power, and the thief of science is always some variation of socialism.  The fact that anti-gravity technology existed on earth at one time and has been lost to all future science, probably in the burning of the library in Alexandria which I spoke about during the recent riots in Egypt demonstrates how artifacts and ancient understanding can be erased forever by the vandals of war.  See that article here:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/the-real-crime-in-egypt-history-lost-to-ideology-and-quests-for-power/

The decision of our day is are we going to look forward to even more scientific discoveries like we are experiencing in Kepler – 22 or are we going to worry about the pensions of public workers who simply expand government?  Are we going to continue to work all our lives for an opportunity to retire and finally become free once our bodies are broken beyond repair, or are we going to embrace regenerative medicine and live for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years?  Are we going to focus on global warming for a planet that is going to be gone in 5 billion years anyway, or are we going to start the process of leaving mother earth and finally move out on our own as a human race………..I mean isn’t it time? 

Socialism is that overprotective mother who never wants her children to leave home, and progressives are those spoiled children who still cleave to their mothers breasts for milk, even though they are fully grown adults.  If left to socialism, no child will ever leave their mother and they will die still cleaving to their mothers warm embrace, never to have lived, never to have explored, never to have loved, never to have sorrow, but they will be safe in their mothers embrace.  Those who act in such a way are socialists and they do not speak for people like me who want nothing to do with that mother.  I want with every essence of my being to jump into space; to capture the mysteries of the tachyon’s so I can travel to far away stars and see what adventure awaits us there.  And for those scared children called progressive socialists who cleave to mother earth and say, “but you will die soon…..why worry about such things?”  My response would be, “I don’t want to live forever, but why can’t I live for 500 to 1000 years.  Noah was 950 years old.  Moses was 120 years old, it is obvious that human beings knew something then that they have forgotten as empires rose and fell around the concept of socialism.” We are on the cusp of being able to repair our bodies indefinitely, so why wouldn’t we?  And why would we not reach for the stars instead of a pension check and a slow death in retirement in a Florida condo? 

All that really is holding us back is socialism and other collective oriented philosophies.  Subscribers of those political theories are short-sighted scared children who wish to keep the world at a constant that they are comfortable with.  And such people do not have the right, or obligation to hold me to their lack of vision.  There are many Kepler – 22’s out there and I want to see human kind explore them all, even if it takes 5000 years to do it.  Our society is on the cusp of that kind of breakthrough.  The pivot point from which we all rest in the other direction is the kind of social de-evolution that will erase all the breakthroughs we’ve experienced of late and drift back into the mentality of the dark ages, which is what progressive socialism intends, to the demise of us all. 

The assumption of our day is that human kind will always advance forward, but that is not the case.  The evidence of modern archeology shows that our distant relatives actually knew more than we currently do about a great many things, and it is the cultures of empires that erased those sciences under the rule of tyranny.  And as we have just discovered or rediscovered a new planet very similar to our own earth, that same tyranny of the past is upon us again and threatens to halt our progress into a slow regression of thought and innovation.  The decision is ours to make, and the merit of that decision will determine thousands of years of future human existence.

The Super Committee isn’t so Super: Complete failure across the political spectrum

On Monday November 21, 2011 the Super Committee of the United States Congress declared that it wasn’t quite so “super” when it acknowledged that they could not, or would not come to any decision on where cuts to the federal budget could be implemented as the total deficit climbed over $15 trillion. To understand exactly what all this deficit talk means, and to translate the decision of the Super Committee to proclaim it’s stalemate just before the Thanksgiving Holiday, Doc Thompson of 700 WLW had on Nathan Bachrach to put it in perspective. You can hear that discussion at the video below.

It doesn’t surprise me at all that the Super Committee was unable to do ANYTHING productive in the two months they have been meeting. Consider for a moment how much a congressman in the capital makes, which is $174,000 a year for rank and file members plus other benefits that can be seen in more detail at the below link:

http://usgovinfo.about.com/od/uscongress/a/congresspay.htm

Imagine the dysfunction of politicians making six figure incomes, which is a healthy sum for anybody, sitting around doing nothing but making noise. The Super Committee worked for two months on a task of reducing the national debt and made no ground at all, and to my mind that means they should all lose their jobs for their epic failure. But how can we expect things to work at the federal level when it doesn’t work at the local level? As this news was breaking about the Super Committee the Lakota School District like virtually all school districts in Ohio are trying to figure out how to balance their budgets to the same results.

Lakota is looking for $12 million dollars to cover their deficit spending that we’ve demonstrated is caused by their very inflated wages which average over $63K per year for over 2000 employees. And with all that supposed talent hired for managing our education dollars, not a single one of them is capable of making any kind of hard decisions on how much to cut from the budget or where to cut it. Why?

Well, the answer is because the entire governmental system from the local schools all the way up to the federal government is built around a looter mentality where the participants have rigged the system to extort legalized plunder from the tax payer for spectral services that actually amount to nothing. For perspective, what government is doing for us is similar to what bottled water companies are doing. They are collecting water, putting it in a plastic container, and selling it to us like they are doing us a favor. But in reality we can get our own water easily, and don’t need a bottling company at all. The bottling companies have created the “perception” that their water is better than water that falls from the sky. Government is doing the same thing with education; they are teaching our kids in an old archaic fashion that is grossly too expensive when a computer could do a much better job for most of the topics. Homeschooled kids outperform public educated kids in virtually every category, so if the goal was to improve the actual education of children, schools would explore the answer as to why. But that is not what is desired, because government education is a “make work” program that is similar to the bottled water company. Government does the same thing with housing, with social security, with medicine, with transportation, with food production, they have their hand in everything and in reality they are simply making it seem that they are working on your behalf when all they are really doing is just selling a service you could get easily on your own. They only exist to “create” jobs, not results.

The weakness in government skill level however is exposed when they are actually required to “manage” costs, instead of simply asking for more money. During the discussed Lakota school board meeting, my family and I spoke about if I should go or to continue with our plans to take my son-in-law out to dinner for his birthday. I decided to take him out for his birthday because my time is worth more than sitting with a bunch of dysfunctional, unskilled, malcontents for an hour and a half and listen to the administrators bungle around the hard decisions in a comical display of ill-equipped politicians who are attempting to cover up the fact that they have no courage, no fortitude, and no idea how to make a proper decision. Because they know that they are part of a system designed to loot from the public treasury, and they’ve benefited from that system so are not equipped to point out the flaws. Your local school board knows it. Your local superintendent knows it. And your local congressman knows it. Every member of the Super Committee knows it. It’s all a scam designed to loot money from the public. For more information and video on how this works, check out this article:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/11/21/legalized-plunder-you-have-been-scammed-at-every-level/

It is a sad state that we have so many government employees who are not paid based on performance but just to sit in a chair and wear a suit. We have allowed them to cruise along making excessive amounts of money for doing virtually nothing. They are exposed when they are required to actually do something, and the problem is epidemic, it’s across the entire political spectrum from top to bottom.

It is in these losers that we place our trust to eliminate a 15 trillion-dollar deficit, to educate our children, to care for our elderly. If the lack of effort on their behalf does not spell out for you the magnitude of our country’s severe failure in virtually every category, nothing will.

America is due for a complete, philosophic identity calibration. It is time for our nation to figure out once and for all what it is. Are we going to continue to be the home of the free, and land of the brave…….or are we just simply a society of looters, which our politicians reflect regarding our general society?

The answer to that question will determine the fate of the United States of America, and that decision will happen on your watch dear reader. You and you alone will decide what is to become of our country. So you better chose correctly.

Issue 2 Debate in Ohio: “The Spoiled Class”

The Labor Movement the more I look into it is a sinister aspect of American culture. Their recent promotion of the protests all over America is clearly nudged by the same advocates who look to the rich in order to fill their basket with tax money so that they can loot from it in a mantra they have embraced for years. Now they are using the innocence of our youth to add fuel to the fire of discontent that often rages in a young mind. I will cover this aspect in great detail in another post, since the origins of these protest run deep, but all can be said to be advocated by a new class of American. This new class is not the “upper class.” It is not the “lower class.” It is not the “middle class.” This new class is called the “Spoiled Class,” and I have seen and heard them first hand in my own community.

I was impatient at the Issue 2 debate which took place on October 3, 2011. As my wife and I arrived at the Lakota East Freshman Building at 7 PM to see Bill Coley take on Steven Lazarus representing the local firefighters in a debate over Issue 2, the collective bargaining reform law. I was impatient because my Tampa Bay Buccaneers were playing the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football and anyone who knows me understands how much I love the Bucs! So I had thought about skipping this debate so I wouldn’t miss the game. However, I also like Doc Thompson and the Liberty Twp Tea Party and both were involved in putting on this debate, so I reluctantly recorded my game to attend this event.

As we walked across the parking lot I saw that several firefighters had arrived all wearing matching t-shirts declaring that they wanted to repeal Issue 2. In the flat bed of a large F250 pick-up truck was a sign, VOTE NO ON ISSUE 2! I noted that most of the usual Tea Party crowd did not seem to be present and were replaced with these protesting public workers. This in itself was not surprising. I expected this to be the case, since this was a meeting created for the benefit of public knowledge.

Inside I noted that the public unions filled the seats in the center of the large auditorium, and the people I knew to be the regular Tea Party members of the community took to the outskirts to observe the strange behavior of the collective union body. Doc Thompson was the MC and instructed Senator Coley and Counsel Lazarus the rules of engagement for the debate. There were microphones at each end of the room where members of the community could come up and ask a question. Doc would take questions from each side of the room switching back and forth till around 8:30 an hour and a half later. I had a list of questions to ask in case people were shy to get started, but my focus was to film the event, and get home to my game, while not lingering too long. That video can be seen here. Of course it’s long; my battery power was running out at the end, so I had to be diligent in my power use. I would have brought my AC supply, but in my mind I didn’t want the event to go on longer than an hour and a half, because my game started at 8:30!!!!!

I was ready with my list to step away from the camera and ask my questions to get the evening started, which wasn’t necessary because a steadily line began to form. Listed below are my questions and I fully expected part of them to be brought up during the event.

Issue 2 questions

1. Why is it necessary to support an extreme labor union position in order to declare support for our Firefighters?

2. Why are the firefighters allowing themselves to be out in front of the larger problem involving the much needed reforms with teachers? It would appear that the teacher unions are using the good name of the firefighters to disguise the targets of the needed reforms brought forth by Issue 2?

3. Why would teachers protest the provision in Issue 2 that prevents striking? Firefighters can’t strike, neither can police, so why should teachers be allowed to strike if their positions are so important to our communities? Without Issue 2, they’ll still be able to walk off the job.

4. One of the provisions in Issue 2 is it makes joining a labor union optional. Wouldn’t we still have firefighters and police and teachers even if the employees didn’t wish to participate in a union?

5. How are overtime costs regulated in the fire and police departments? Is it true that a senior officer nearing their retirements work more hours to boost their retirement amounts, so they can show a higher yearly salary, boosting their retirement amounts?

6. How specifically will Issue 2 take away public employees?

7. How specifically will Issue 2 make conditions unsafe for police and firefighters?

8. (To Lazarus) Do you agree with the level of protests and rhetoric that occurred around Issue 2 when it was Senate Bill 5?

9. Why is it so important to remove binding arbitration?

10. Why is it so unfair to ask public employees to pay a fraction of their health care costs?

11. In what way have public employees made sacrifices when they have an edge of 43.4% in benefits over the private sector that pay their salaries? Wouldn’t a real sacrifice be in equalizing the benefits of the public worker with the private worker?

12. (To Lazarus) According to the recent Monroe City contract with its 33 firefighters the union proposed a 15 percent increase in wages spread evenly over three years — 5 percent in 2011, 5 percent in 2012 and 5 percent in 2013. Why does the union think this is appropriate, because in three more years there will be more increase requests?

13. (To Lazarus) Do you think increases of 3 to 5% a year is acceptable even if the CPI index from the private sector doesn’t provide the same level of compensation.

14. Dealing with 33 firefighters like the situation in Monroe and their requests for good wages for their public service takes on an entirely new meaning when it comes to school teachers where the district must employee up to 1500 employees, such as the case at Lakota. The cost of the teachers on the community is much greater for the teachers because of the number of employees. Without Issue 2, what type of management control would the public employee attorney suggest?

15. How can we continue without Issue 2, because collective bargaining has only worked well for the public worker, leaving the community facing higher and higher taxes? It would seem that collective bargaining has been good for public employees, but not the people on the other side of the table. How is that fair?

However…………I didn’t get a chance to ask a single question, partially because I couldn’t step away from the camera as long as would be required as the union members were not shy about asking questions. Of course I knew the answer to all those questions, but I wanted to ask them to allow the two personalities speaking to answer them for the public benefit. You can see most of those answers in my articles on Issue 2 listed here: CLICK THIS HOT LINK TO READ.

I came to this event with the intention to have an open mind toward the union position. What I witnessed from my unique position as a spectator behind the lens of a camera was a group of people whom I believe are nice people. I think if they were my direct neighbor I might lend them a bucket or a water hose if they needed it. But collectively, what I saw of these people was a deeply selfish group, completely consumed with self-interest. They seemed immature in a juvenile sort of way and it was obvious that what they were doing at this Liberty Twp Tea Party event was to use mass to intimidate the opposition, a mode of operation that they have done for years.

Now I’ve been to these events many times, and I know who speaks and who doesn’t, and during the course of the evening, most everyone sat in their seats and gapped at these public employees as though they were watching animals in a zoo. The behavior of the public employees seemed foreign and un-American. I encourage you dear reader to watch the entire video, because you will see for yourselves how the public unions booed and hissed at the things that Senator Coley was saying. It was a radical behavior that seemed completely out-of-place in a forum of adult discussion.

I feel badly now, for with all that I have said and written about how destructive the public worker has become not only to the national economy, but to themselves. I feel badly because even though many view my comments as harsh and overly critical, I realize now after that episode of the Issue 2 Debate that my comments have not been harsh enough. It is evident to me that the public unions do not represent the middle-class in any way shape or form. They are a new class onto themselves. The name of that class is the “Spoiled Class.” They are citizens of our community who have become so numb to anything beneficial that they no longer appreciate what it took to give them anything at all. They seem to be no different from the spoiled child of the very wealthy who will scream at the top of their lungs, “I DO NOT WANT TO GO TO DISNEYLAND IN CALIFORNIA. I WANT TO GO TO DISNEYWORLD IN FLORIDA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”

The entire evening of the debate, even though I thought Senator Coley did very well, was about health care premiums, and the wages of the politicians themselves. The public unions seem to have absolutely no concept as to where the money comes from, because as Lazarus stated, “The public worker pays taxes too.” Those taxes come easier when the wage and benefit differential makes paying the taxes easier. For the public worker paying taxes is like passing the hat in revenue they all share. For the private worker we contribute to the hat, but get nothing back but cry-baby employees who never seem to be happy and are corrupted with union radicalism.

I thought Lazarus did well also. He is a very good attorney and it has been an army of people just like him arguing on behalf of public unions for years who have driven up our taxes. Lazarus showed exactly why we need Issue 2. People like Lazarus have made good livings off representing the public worker, and taking advantage of politician who weren’t as cleaver as him, and easy to take advantage of. Coley tried to explain the process, but the public workers didn’t want to hear it. All they wanted to hear was that their health care costs wouldn’t go up, and that the politicians were going to take a pay cut. Speaking to them was like speaking to a child who hasn’t yet learned to read and understand information on their own.

The “Spoiled Class” cannot be reasoned with. They cannot be appeased. They do not wish to negotiate unless it is in their favor. They are selfish, short-sighted, corrupt, and are in need of a basic education to even have a foundation discussion with. They are the epitome of a virus in the human body threatening eternal sickness, even death if allowed to continue. The “Spoiled Class” is a self-destructive group of parasites who negate any potential they bring to society in their public work with 10 negatives for every positive.

They like the spoiled child are not even capable of seeing anything beyond their own concerns. The “Spoiled Class” collective disposition is only out for what they can achieve in mass and even that has a selfish prerequisite.

And that was what stunned my Tea Party friends on this evening. They were thinking just as I was, that yes, these public workers are every bit as bad as we feared they were. They are an uncaring lot who live in a totally different reality than the rest of us.

Issue 2 is about 10 years too late. I think Issue 2 isn’t nearly strong enough and is too late to save our society from the termites of our culture that is the public worker. Even the attorney Lazarus instructed us that the reason for collective bargaining to come about in the first place was to protect the citizens from striking police officers. That is the same as saying that we must take the form of extortion that is collective bargaining over another form of extortion called walking off the job. This tells me that the employees who would consider either option is a radical that isn’t worth the tax money I must produce to employee them. For such people are not worth my hard work. They are not worth one bead of sweat on my brow. They deserve no effort what-so-ever of my labor for their sustenance; for they provide me with virtually nothing in exchange for the great deal that I give them with my taxes.

I feel toward this “Spoiled Class” just as I would the spoiled child who would complain about my choice in vacation spots for their entertainment. Their ungrateful demeanor prompts me to get back in the car and take them back home, for the effort of their enjoyment brings me only headaches.

It is our fault for allowing this “Spoiled Class” to rule as they have. We have allowed them to ruin our lives in toil toward their aims, to shut their screaming mouths for fear that they might embarrass us. We created the “Spoiled Class” and I would suggest that we dismantle it for their own good. Because the mental condition of the “Spoiled Class” is that of a psychological weakling. They are dependents who only have strength in collective numbers which is an insect-like trait, and this should not be allowed to be a mode of operation for any member of the human race.

Issue 2 needs to be passed and passed quickly. The longer this behavior goes on, the closer the human race de-evolves back into a primitive rubbing sticks together for fire, or catching food with a rock, because the path of the public workers will take us in the direction of a primitive where they cheer like hunters who have just slaughtered a woolly mammoth to the demise of everything the human mind cherished as good once upon a time of skyscrapers and industry.

As to fairness in labor negotiations all one must do is look at the 43.4% edge the public workers have over their employers, the tax payers, to see who has benefited from collective bargaining without Issue 2. (IT ISN’T THE PRIVATE SECTOR)

Thank a Feminist: What is Lingerie Football and why Playboy is involved?

Doc Thompson talks to Lisa Richards from Women Fighting Sexism on 700 WLW in what turned out to be a very revealing discussion that I think spills over into many other aspects of society. Ms. Richards represents a portion of the human population that has “other” problems and seeks to fix them through activism. It is evident by listening to her in this broadcast that she has a real dislike for men, who unfortunately for her make up half of the population.

My thoughts are that women like this are suffering, and I think they need help. I covered this syndrome in another article so repeating it here would be redundant. Have a look to review:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2010/10/04/how-to-fix-a-neurotic-woman/

I personally think that feminism has been very destructive to women. I wrote an entire article on that topic as well which can be seen here:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2010/12/13/the-lie-of-feminism-a-mountain-of-work-that-has-to-be-undone/

Lisa Richards is not alone, and I frequently see the footprint of her type in the radical dialogues of organized labor, particularly teachers unions and that’s where the opinion of these lost souls becomes costly. It’s not against the law to have a flawed opinion, but when you follow the origin to destructive human behavior which costs money to fix, which we find in the education profession, it is people like Richards who brought about the unintended consequences from which many suffer.

For instance, let’s look at Lisa Richards’s militant hatred of men, and her desire to prove that women can be every bit superior to men. That is the platform of her position, and has been the foundation of the women’s movement for 100 years of progressive politics. What has it given women?

I’d say women have now become every bit as disgusting and sexually driven as men. They are just as aggressive and selfish too, so from that aspect, feminists have achieved their objective which can be seen in the new football league called Lingerie Football, which airs on the progressive television network MTV. (What this has to do with music is nothing. MTV is simply the ‘progressive’ channel, designed to prepare the minds of the young in all manners of progressive politics.)

In male football, the men are well-built, they show their assets anytime they can, and they behave the same way. Football is meant to be attractive to the opposite sex. With women, they are attracted to small waists with narrow butts of men, as I pointed out in my article on sign stimuli:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/08/29/supernormal-sign-stimuli-what-is-it-an-how-it-runs-your-life/

Women like large shoulders and narrow hips because in the role of sex, these are the parts of the mating ritual that will hold a woman down and allow the man to enter without difficulty. A man with large hips just doesn’t fit so well, and makes sex less desirable for the woman. So women like these things, the shoulder pads and uniform of men are designed to be appealing to women as much as ad protection in the game play. That’s one of the reasons the NFL is successful, it appeals to men’s aggression, and the sign stimuli of women, so men and women can share the game together.

The Lingerie Football League must do the same if it wishes to elevate women to the same level of game play and public approval as the men in the NFL. So the LFL has learned what the WNBA never learned, and that there must be some sexual attraction to the players for people to accept the sport, because sports are a primal activity rooted in sex. At a subconscious level, sports is a way of determining who wins, and that determines the best genes which indicates who is suitable to reproduce with, so without those elements, sports loses much of its appeal. For a sport to be successful, it must appeal to both men and women to have market value. So feminists have achieved equality, because men in the NFL market their game exactly the same way.

Women are hitting each other just as hard as men do, but yes they must wear less clothing because if they are to appeal to men’s sign stimuli, which they must to be successful, the women can’t cover up their sign stimuli. So the breasts must be exposed as well as the entry points for the penis in the woman’s pelvic region. For the women, the feminists the get the satisfaction of knowing they are just as fast, just as strong as men, that they can hit hard and be respected just as men are. But for men to stay interested the costume designers for the LFL knew what they were doing and applied scientific reason to the process.

That’s how the men do it. In fact if these women didn’t look like women, I think I might even forget that they are women, but just gladiator warriors in the arena of battle. That means they have achieved social equality. The LFL is smartly marketing itself with this in mind and in just two short years it is taking on the qualities of legitimacy from its origins as a publicity stunt.

The LFL game looks like football and the pace is the same. Without the big hits, the LFL would never get away with “equality.” Flag football attempted for years to achieve what the LFL has achieved, because women can’t respect themselves as equal unless they are willing to take or give a big hit, or even fight brutally, the way men do.

So to women like Lisa Richards, you have achieved your success, you have brought women down to the same level of men, instead of goddesses to be aspired to, you and the feminist movement have made them equal to men, and your march to exceeding that mark is well on its way.

You can hear the same feminist wrangling in the labor movement, and there can be no question that much of the perceived value, and cost along with the budget breaking pay increases that society has thrown at feminists for years to help them feel “equal” in society have not placated them. They just keep asking for more.

These are the results of the feminist equality as launched by progressive politics. Like many progressive policies, there are unintended consequences. I’m sure Lisa Richards and her kind despises the LFL Football games, but it is they who made the LFL possible. And the whole process of “man hating” which launched the feminist movement and has brought women down to the level of men, and actually wrecked budgets because financial decisions are made collectively toward women as a whole, and not as individual performers. I’ve seen these feminist types littered with abundance in the Pro School Levy advocates I’ve had to deal with in many political fights. They fully expect that because they are women, that logic should not apply to them. Most of them sound just as off their rockers as Lisa Richards did. It is their psychological problems at that point that they become social pariahs, because logical discussions are no longer within reach with these broken women.

People are often shocked when they learn that my wife and I have been married for over 20 years. While most of the time it wasn’t easy, much of the trouble we have had in our marriage was due to the fact that when we were married, we made a decision to reject progressive politics, and that meant everything related to feminism. My wife has never had to work, she raised our children and when I came home each day my dinner was waiting on me. We share our household obligations in the traditional sense completely, because it is my observation that feminism doesn’t work, and deep down inside, most women don’t want it to work either. Most of any trouble my wife and I have had in our marriage were a result of family members attempting to impose upon our marriage the progressivism of the age, which I rejected as destructive very early in my life, and I would not budge, and at times those expectations from family members was very overwhelming. They did not see as I did, what the whole movement added up to, and that’s creations like the LFL. So when I raised my two daughters, I taught them the same thing, don’t listen to progressive politics even if it comes out of the mouths of treasured family members. Just look at them as sick, or senile concoctions of regressing social evolution, it will lead you down an unhappy life of unfilled expectations. I told my daughters that one of the reasons so many men are selecting women from other countries to marry and not America is because women from other countries, especially economically impoverished countries, are that foreign women tend to still believe in traditional marriage responsibilities.

I explained to my daughters that men want a partner in their life, not some radical short-haired vigilante. Men want to be pampered; they like to be cooked for. And they like a woman who stays interested in sex, and not some social “equality” thing. Once equality takes place among the sexes, a man would just as soon have sex with another man because if the whole activity of sex for them is simply ejaculation, they can do that with a man the same as a woman. But it is the woman who is the traditional “goddess” figure in culture, who thinks of the things men don’t and encourage the man to be a better human being, that challenges a man to always improve that drives society. The feminist movement has turned that whole social structure upside down and ruined it in America. That’s why men are looking for wives in other countries, where those women still believe in a traditional family structure.

So I’d say the same thing to Lisa Richards and almost every woman who chants for “equal” rights in the labor movement, what I told my own daughters, that men don’t want the kind of woman the feminists want to be. And guess what, because of this new globalism, you will have to compete with “other” women from other cultures who still believe in traditional values. In fact my oldest daughter had to go to England to find a man who still thought the way I do about family, valor and being an honorable man, because the United States isn’t making them anymore.

Ultimately, that is the anger you hear in Ms. Richards voice, that her beliefs have led her down a path of loneliness, and her life will always have a lack of fulfillment in it. Her only real option will be to find companionship in another woman, which will always lack real sexual fulfillment because even with sex toys and other techniques, the experience just isn’t the same. And she will never find a man of any real passion because men who have passion are either already taken by another woman, or a man will simply grab a plane and fly to another country to get a nice looking woman who doesn’t have a bunch of stupid hang-ups.

Meanwhile, as America finally achieves “equality” in the 100 year war of feminism, men who just want to have sex with other women, it’s never been easier, so they are happy. They can now watch football and see plenty of the fine attributes of a woman without even having to do any work to see it. And this cheapens the whole ritual of sex for men, which makes them lazy, and less of a man. I would never advocate an age where men were free to beat on a woman with impunity like what happens in the Muslim culture, which these same feminists are advocating mysteriously due to their beliefs in progressive politics. There was a time where men in American culture played straight into the feminist hands with binge drinking and treating their wives badly, which is a crime in and of itself. But the baby in this case was thrown out with the bath water. Feminism has been terrible for American culture and the people who advocate feminism are extremely expensive as public servants because they expect to use money to fill aspects of their lives where a penis is missing. And that’s a shame, because every woman should have the honor of experiencing the wonder of sex with a man who truly loves her. And every woman should witness the benefit of watching a man work all day and all night just to have the honor of pressing himself and his pheromones upon her, and to know that he had to earn that right and does not take it lightly, which brings added meaning to the entire ritual, and actually elevates the consciousness of the human race in the bliss of an enchanting evening.

Ancient Aliens and the Tea Party: Koyannisqatsi (LIFE OUT OF BALANCE)

Do yourself a favor, after you read this spend the time to watch these videos then read this again.  After that, pass it to a friend and let them start a journey they will never forget.  I have included the entire film of Koyannisquatsi at this end of this post, which is one of my favorite films of all time.  Enjoy!

Remember the speech that President Obama gave right after the shooting in Texas where he wanted to give a “shout out” at the Native Americans of the area? That was an awkward moment which showed just how out of touch the President really was in that instant of crises. The President exhibited all the typical signs of an out of touch academic which is what he is. He was simply revealing the Static Intellectualism, of which the Progressive Platform is built around, specifically in this case empathy for the plight of the Native American without really understanding the beliefs of the culture they are empathizing with.

The modern academic however, of which Obama is a part is limited in their understanding of many things, particularly the study of mankind’s past. They are stuck in the Static Intellectual culture patterns of which they helped create, and that is all life emerged in one of two ways, through evolution, or creation. One theory is one of science, which the Static Intellectual controls; the other is controlled by the religious institutions which is another type of Static Intellectual control. To the Static Intellectual who created progressive politics no other options exists, because the cultural patterns they established are the rules they are living by. That leaves out one small problem with their love of the Native American; the foundation beliefs of the Native American Culture most likely came from another planet which is represented in many of the rituals of Native American culture which permeates most societies from the Hopi to the Iroquois of New England. It was the Iroquois Five Nations that greeted William Johnston in his frontier fights against the French during the French and Indian war and those Five Nations were unified by a being that landed on Earth and instructed them not to be a war with one another, and to unite their efforts under one nation, of which the Iroquois did. (See the book Wilderness Empire by Allen Eckert)

The problem with this is that through study of the Native American rituals clues to the origins of mankind can and should be studied, but the Static Intellectualism of our modern culture have built their cultural patterns around the history of Europe which does not study the Native American cultures. Instead they study the known regions of Africa and the Middle East as the cradle of civilization and assume with arrogance that it’s always been that way, which Europe and its imperial roots contained within the Roman Empire gave birth to the world. So the scientific premise regarding the origin of the human race which has been controlled by the Roman Catholic Church, as a direct descendent of the Roman Empire refuses to look at all the new scientific archeological evidence coming in from all over the world. See my article on The Secret of Malden Island.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/08/13/secret-of-malden-island-why-public-education-is-hiding-history/

Progressives led by the Static Intellectualism of the Victorian Era, and their love of the Native American culture because of the terrible exploitation imposed upon them particularly by President Andrew Jackson, who was a frontier fighter, a rugged American, it suited their political purpose to smear Jackson, yet in their study of this political history as intellectuals they completely missed the beliefs of those Native Americans and the foundations behind their tribal mythologies.

Chief Standing Elk seen below shares a friendship with a person I know who is a shaman and lives in St. Louis. This shaman is a dream-walker and a spiritual healer and I find her fascinating because her belief system is so completely different from mine. I enjoy conversations with her, she is to my personal Static Pattern belief system a Dynamic which challenges those beliefs that I find valuable. Anyway, this shaman friend of mine invited me to a spiritual meeting at Serpent Mound a few years ago with this Chief who is an active spiritual leader attempting to carry on the beliefs of the tribes who inhabited America before the immigration of the European. Listen to what the Chief believes.

I became interested in Native American cultures through the film Koyannisqatsi, (SEE THE WHOLE FILM BELOW) which is one of my favorite films, and features a haunting Hopi Indian chant that has never left my mind. The word Koyannisqatisi means in Hopi, “life out of balance, crazy life.” I nurtured that understanding through the work of Joseph Campbell’s comparative mythology studies, so I have a pretty good idea of what they are all about and I’ve always been fascinated by the origin of their beliefs. For instance, my wife and I frequent the Serpent Mound Archeological site a couple of times a year for many years now and have watched the perception of that place change dramatically from one of hard archeology based on the Adena Indian culture to this new age Star Culture idea that Chief Standing Elk believes. One of our visits a few years ago had various Indian tribes and shaman types chanting outside the museum and I told my wife that the science of the place was reverting, not advancing. These primitive beliefs and tribal chants seemed silly to me, until I did some reading of my own.

The big mystery of Serpent Mound is that it not only is a mound structure of a serpent, which is a universal symbol of life renewal, but it is particularly designed to be seen from the air, and all over the world such as the Nazca Lines of Peru and several features all over England, this is a common occurrence where societies seemed to be preoccupied with impressing the gods from the air. But the biggest mystery is the location itself in the middle of a crypto explosion event which occurred during the Permian Period, about 248 to 286 million years ago. Read more about the mound here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serpent_Mound

Check out this clip, right about the 2:30 mark:

The crypto explosion is mysterious because it was a violent occurrence several miles wide and would usually be a result of a meteor impact similar to the site in Arizona just to the east of the Grand Canyon outside of Winslow, but it doesn’t look like that. It appears that at least half of the force occurred under the ground as well, so it’s quite a geological mystery. The haunting thing about this mystery is why the Serpent Mound is located right in the middle of this very unique spot that occurred hundreds of millions of years before any builders of the Serpent Mound came along. How did anyone from the Serpent Mound Culture know that something extremely unusual geologically occurred in that exact spot, out of all the spots on the face of planet Earth, a so-called primitive culture knew that something unusual and astronomically significant occurred right there in the middle of a wooded area in Ohio, with no visual reference on the surface. You have to do some digging to see the results of the crypto explosion.

Well, the shamans are saying that a seed ship landed on Earth and brought visitors who inhabited this new land. Such comments make me think of how the European encountered the Aztec and Mayan cultures of Central America and also the Polynesian cultures of the Pacific Ocean, where they imposed their religion upon the primitive people they encountered. Those cultures were influenced by the goods brought from Europe and changed forever as a result of this interaction and in the case the Native American; their cultures were almost completely destroyed by this exchange with the European. It is this aspect of the exchange that the progressive celebrates out of guilt so they do not look any deeper.

Our current culture is only about 200 years from being able to jump from planet to planet itself, so such space travel isn’t very far-fetched taken scientifically. Modern human culture achieved this ability in just about 10 to 20 thousand years, so it’s possible there could be many cultures out in space that are many thousands of years more advanced than we currently are. It is starting to appear that Earth has been greatly influenced by much more than just simple evolution or even creationism, which certainly have played a part, but there are other influences which gave rise to the sudden explosion of technology upon the human race, and the Native Americans seem to have a better understanding of that process than the Anglo-Saxon.

But the Static Intellectualism of academia who has built their universities upon flimsy theories based on Darwin and the Archeology of the Middle East refuse to see it. They, like President Obama think only of the suffering of the Native American at the hands of the “white man” because if fulfils the mission statement of their political platform. But if they actually took the time to listen to the Native American mythology, passed the obvious concern for conservation which also fills another political platform of “green technology” the study of Native American mythology and their roots don’t seem to be examined at all.

This is why television shows like the History Channel’s Ancient Aliens are so poplar, because the Dynamic Intellectualism of our current culture sees that the Static Intellectualism of our education institutions are missing the point in their interrelationship with the progressive politics of the Victorians in America. We are beginning to question the basic premise of the whole religious and scientific premise of mankind’s origins and that’s a good healthy process. If our education system is wrong, then it needs to correct that wrong with new understanding and not resort to the methods of the Spanish Inquisition, or burning heretics at the stake for being non-believers.

The Static Intellectuals of Progressive politics will insist that any notations of aliens colonizing planet Earth and bringing technology to the Homo sapiens who already lived here are preposterous. This is similar to when the church was upset with Isaac Newton for declaring that the Earth was not the center of the universe, which seems laughable now considering what we have learned about not only our galaxy but the many galaxies that make up the universe. In fact, through our understanding of quantum mechanics we are now beginning to think of the concept of a multi-verse. So the church was wrong, and the Victorians who built the progressive politics of which the current Static Intellectualism is protecting, are also wrong. In fact they are way off, and the evidence is overwhelming.

And this is where the Tea Party comes into this whole thing. Progressives are the political entity that is holding the world to a Static Pattern that is flawed in it perception of virtually everything. As it turns out, they are not so “progressive” but have been caught assuming that they are the “enlightened” ones and that they would be the ones who teach the world everything. They currently hold an imperial like grip on academia, which we can see is wrong, because Dynamic Intellectualism is using its imagination to ask the hard questions, where did we come from? And the answer is not in the Static Intellectual offering, so the pattern is wrong and must be broken down and rebuilt with new data gathered up by Dynamic Intellectualism.

The same is happening in politics, where the Dynamic Intellectuals represented by the Tea Party are shattering the Static Patters of progressive politics, because those politics are turning out to be completely false and ridiculously naive. This is why both mystics who say that the Earth was influenced by alien encounters and those who say that America should return to the principles of the United States Constitution are kooks. Because it is the Static Intellectuals who are threatened by the Dynamic Intellectuals of interrupting the Static Pattern that modern science has been established on.

I don’t know if aliens did or did not visit the Earth and influence our culture in any way. But I do know that archeology and anthropology along with geology and other sciences are in their infancy of understanding our world history, and a lot of discoveries have not been reasonably explained by anything more than some Static Intellectual politically correct assessment. But Static Intellectual ideas have not explained how temples were built all over the Pacific, or the mystery of Easter Island, or the Temple at Baalbek, Stonehenge, the Great Pyramid, the Sphinx, the city of Tiahuanaco which may be as old as 16,000 BC, and many, many, many, many others. Only Dynamic Intellectuals have ventured into this territory of exploring explanations, and like Newton, they are ridiculed.

The Tea Party too knows that the Static Pattern of America is wrong and it needs to be corrected as they are called names by the Static Intellectuals such as “terrorists, assassins, kooks, radicals, uneducated fools,” and the like. The Tea Party is a threat to the Static Patter of the Static Intellectual who is clamoring to their education empire even in the face of overwhelming evidence that they have been completely wrong about most everything they believe. The path of the progressive is a dead-end and they refuse to see their error even when the evidence is right in front of them.

This is what they have done to the Native American. They took only the parts of their culture that they could use for the progressive political platform, but they rejected the aspects that didn’t support their political platform and this is most obvious in the words of Chief Standing Elk, who is a strict conversationalist, represents the thoughts and beliefs of his ancestors, but he also believes that the world co-exists with “star people.” If the Static Intellectual were honest about their assessments they’d call Chief Standing Elk a kook for his beliefs, but they won’t because he is a Native America and part of the progressive political platform. They’ll just ignore the rest of Chief Standing Elk’s beliefs like they do everything else they don’t understand and will remain just as ignorant as those who were in charge during the Dark Ages, because as Static Intellectuals, they are stuck with beliefs that are fixed to the foundations of their existence, and they lack the courage of the Dynamic Intellectual who will go out on a limb with a scientific theory, because the Static Intellectual is simply too timid to venture in unknown regions of the mind. That is why they call people names, and that is why they always fail in the end as history marches on without them.

Too bad there isn’t a word in the English language that sums of the statement, “life out of balance, or crazy life” like the Hopi have. The reason the Hopi have this word is because in their culture they saw a need for such a term. The European had to invent a series of words to mean the same thing, because their culture wasn’t advanced enough to understand the need for some kind of balance between the various forces that exemplify a culture. Most of the time that out-of-balance state is the war between the Static portions of society and the Dynamic portions, and the Hopi understood this and they invented a word to bring all the aspects of their life into focus so they could advance as a culture, and that word was Koyannisqatsi.
