Yup, I watched the debate. What a bunch of fake news. No real substance. The biggest takeaway – I think smiling Joe does not have Alzheimer’s, but he sure is a practiced lier. Trump was combative, as he had to argue with the host, who would propagate untrue propaganda. Sad, as Trump would say.
Really not much more to say than that. No real knockout punch. Just business as usual.
Final word, election fraud. My view it’s the only way the Democrats will win. So I stayed up late to watch this?
Yesterday on MSNBC Joe Biden said of President Trump “He is sort of like (Joseph) Geobblels, you say a lie long enough, keep repeating it, repeating it, repeating it, it becomes common knowledge.
I abhor any comparison of today’s America with 1930’s Germany. Yet I am going to go there, because the comparison has become so commonplace. Joe Biden has a point, yet he is simply projecting. He is telling the truth, yet he confuses the characters. MSNBC & CNN are no different than Geobblels Ministry of Propaganda. It would be foolhardy to believe that CNN is anything more than paid propaganda. In comparison MSNBC is the sidekick with delusions of grandeur. Their goal is to make CNN look conservative. Ha.
Jesse Owens went into a fascist regime, played by the rules of their game, and defeated them. For that he will be remembered. In comparison, Donald Trump went into a fascist regime, played by the rules of their game, and defeated them. For that he will be remembered.
CNN, MSNBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post and so many others are no better than the Geobbels Ministry of Propaganda propping up an addled old man with delusions. We are no different than Germany in the 1930’s in that regard. The difference is we do have an alternative voice. A coherent and rational voice, if you listen. Listen to the debate in two days. After that it will be clear. If any voice is to support a Democrat. It will be the voice of a Nazi.
Keep your feet in the air!
Ruth Bader Ginsburg is the first Supreme Court Justice to lie in state. Actually William Howard Taft was another supreme court justice to lie in state, but he was also president. So I do not think that being a justice had a lot to do with his honor.
Amazingly Ruth is also the first woman to lie in state. Something that did surprise me. So what did she do? I had to use the power of Google, we actually I used Bing to find out. I do not want to deceive the court. As far as I thought, no justice has had any effect on my life. Yet, I probably am wrong. So what did I find out.
She was a proponent of women’s rights. She wrote an opinion on the opening of a military academy to women.
She had an effect on abortions for women.
She wrote an opinion for same sex marriage.
She failed to use the word respectfully on a judgment about hanging chads.
That’s about it. She is described in the press as a rock star, and famously notorious. It was also argued that she was exceedingly narcissistic.
My personal opinion is follow the law and you won’t need to know any judges. So I don’t pay them much attention. Yet it is probably true that she affected the way people treat me. She was no fan of Trump and called him a “faker”. An unusual and inflammatory comment from the judiciary. A comment surely used by those who advocated violence against Trump supporters.
So when it really comes down to it, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is most famous for being the first female to lay in state.
Congratulations to the Notorious RBG.
It was my fifty ninth birthday. We had a private room at a local restaurant. The chief was renowned, and specialty lobster rolls were on the menu. Drinks were flowing and my close friends and family were in attendance. The mood was festive and my fifty buck lobster roll was the best I had ever had.
My friends and family were liberal. I could have been considered a moderate conservative. I don’t talk politics, I will only express my opinion when asked. I know better.
I was surprised when politics came up and everyone agreed that Trump would be the next president. This was just a couple of months after he and Melania came down the escalator in Trump tower. I took mental note of the harmony and unity, and yes I was thrilled. So much energy is wasted on political conflict.
Hoping to capitalize, and ride on the coattails of political harmony, I created this blog. My original thought was this would be about golf. How wrong I was. An era of political harmony had not arrived. Yet, sadly, I learned a lot.
People are beholden to their personalities. Politicians capitalize this to persuade. It is easy to convince a racist that racism is prevalent. It is easy to convince a fascist that fascism is a current thing. Yes, these were my friends. However it is hard to convince a sceptic of such outrageous things, this is my family.
Donald Trump talks about jobs. The people that support him work.
The more people talk of such things, the more likely they are such things. So what does that make me? A machine, or a writer.
Several score ago socialist seeds were sown by the Soviets in our unions. Then after what has been an extraordinarily long gestation the resulting fruit is temptingly large luscious and yes, poisonous. The fruit is also extraordinarily rare.
Yet the power of the fruit breeds desire. European fascism from the east, Chinese communism from the west, have converged for the poisoned feast.
Eat drink and be merry, for tomorrow we may die.
A basic tenet of liberalism and environmentalism is there are too many people on the planet. The earth cannot sustain us all. This is what they teach us. Society is unsustainable. This philosophical ideology has been around quite a while.
How do the leaders that accept this basic tenet, plan for a better world? They cannot make the world larger, for there are no new lands to be discovered. To act would be to make the population smaller. Smaller people would be nice. If we were so one fourth our size the world be the equivalent eight times larger. Nice thought, but we are not Alice in Wonderland. Leaders by their nature must act, so what did they do? A designer plague is suggested?
Think about it. There is good evidence that the virus called COVID 19 came from a lab. Apologies to my Chinese friends, but this is what we are told. They would like us to believe that it was just a random mistake, yet we were aware of its existence almost immediately. I can’t help but think it was a carefully crafted brew. The reasoning is simple. Old people cost society money. So why not just take them out and save medical costs and Social Security expenses. Someone could fill the prescription for the designer plague. The customer is always right, they say money talks. They have cold hearts.
As harsh as that sounds there is evidence. The mixing of COVID patients with nursing homes and veteran hospitals when there are other beds available. What are promising fires become illegal, even though they are cheap and effective, as demonstrated in third world countries. Then there is the timing, posed to effect an election? Something is adding up.
Of course the proliferation of rioting is not exactly a healthy lifestyle, could they also be a means to a shortened life? I think that is a bit of a stretch, yet the rioting persists.
The biggest fear. It could happen again. We now have a model plague. It could be tuned to do more, or less damage. The science of the plague is probably now big business.
When it comes to personal attacks, plagues are indiscriminate. How appropriate. When it comes to politics, personal attacks are just business as usual. Some are just more vicious than others. We already know they hate us.
Recently I had a conversation with my father. Actually it wasn’t really my father, he has been gone for quite a while. However the conversation would have been the same. Yes, it was about politics.
When it comes to politics I am analytical. Emotional logic does not work with me. I would urge my father to stick with provable facts, rather than emotional examples. I would ask him to look at trends rather than singular examples. Finally I could never get him to stay on topic. It was just the way he was. I never did convince him of my logic. He would just get angry.
I will give credit to my recent conversation, they did not get angry. They were exceptionally good at repeating recent liberal propaganda. I guess that is not much of a surprise giving the location. As with my father, I suggested listening to the actual words, rather than someone’s interpretation the next day. I also suggested that being a member of a union may shape political opinion.
I pretty much stopped talking politics with my father. He would get so mad. I would feel bad. Sometimes I would say something that would set him off. I wouldn’t mean too, it would be accidental. Sometimes saying the sky is blue is wrong.
I am not saying my recent conversation created anger, it however created anguish. So I felt bad, yet I also felt fear. For there can be political repercussions in this age. Yet I want to be honest, and not pander.
What is my view may not prevail, and if that is the case so be it. My time has passed. The future is for the young. I did not agree with my father, the youth of today have no obligation to agree with me.
