Is ‘Climate Change’ Really Our Biggest Challenge?
Sunday, January 31st, 2016 | Author:

Human nature indicates that people are inherently superstitious.  In fact, this human frailty historically has been one of the major attractions of religion for many people.  That is, the rank and file have been coerced to believe that adherence to religious beliefs will help ensure ‘good luck’.  While this is rather simplistic analysis, this flaw in human reasoning has been the basis for tyrannical control over a population for more than 1000 years.

Unfortunately, our modern politicians have latched onto the same allure of superstition and how it can be used to maintain leverage over voting citizens.  All hard working American are now being duped to believe that anything that happens ‘bad’ is the result of ‘climate change’.  This can range from a heavy snowstorm to viral-infected mosquitos to depressed pets, and frisky cats.    The implicit message that you can distill from these exclamations is this simple message: If you had sent more of your money to Washington, problem X would not have occured.

In my view, we are much more likely to experience a financial catastrophe from unhindered spending than calamity from man-made climate change.  Any major destruction of the earth is much more likely to be the result of astronomical anomalies such as meteors, asteroids, or sun spots than it is the result from burning West Virginia coal.  Of course, this reality doesn’t support the position of those that want to rule your life.

Cavs Still Mixed Up
Sunday, January 24th, 2016 | Author:

The team lacks personnel chemistry and it’s hard to force the issue:

They changed coaches. Everything else about the Cavaliers looked the same.And as if they don’t have enough problems, new coach Tyronn Lue said they’re out of shape. Lue didn’t make much of a difference in his coaching debut for Cleveland on Saturday night, when Pau Gasol scored 25 points to leading the Chicago Bulls to a 96-83 win over the Cavaliers. Lue was promoted Friday, when David Blatt was shockingly fired despite taking the team to the NBA Finals last season and leading it to the best record in the Eastern Conference this season. Lue acknowledged being nervous about sliding into Blatt’s seat, and while his team gave effort, the Cavaliers didn’t win.

Do Moslems Believe that Obama is a Moslem?
Thursday, January 21st, 2016 | Author:

Now what is there about Obama’s behavior that would make you think he sympathizes deeply with Moslems?  Evidently, many people in the Middle East feel that Obama is really a Moslem:

The rumor goes back as far as the 2008 election, when state-run Iranian papers published articles that suggested Obama was a Shiite Muslim. There were even celebrations in Iraq’s Shiite strongholds when he won the election in November 2008. “Many people felt, Now we have a brother in the White House,” one resident of Sadr City, a Shiite enclave in Baghdad, told Time magazine…

They don’t call him the Manchurian Marxist Moslem for no reason at all…

A Modern Day Kapo
Wednesday, January 20th, 2016 | Author:

Update

It appears that I’m not the only one that is very critical of the Kapo from Illinois:

Rep. Peter Roskam (R., Ill.), co-chair of the House Republican Israel Caucus, lashed out at the administration, chastising it for seeking to inflame a diplomatic fight with Israel as the Jewish state grapples with a new wave of Palestinian terror attacks that has killed and wounded many civilians…

Shapiro’s comments prompted Roskam to write Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday to demand that he distance the Obama administration from Shapiro’s remarks.

January 19, 2016 –  And to think that some people feel that Rahm Emanuel is a self-hating Jew… This guy, Daniel Shapiro, really fits the mold of the modern day Kapo.  He displays the ostensible badges of being a good Jew, yet he carries water for Obama, one of Judaism’s greatest adversaries:

Dan Shapiro, US Ambassador, accused Israel of blocking a two-state solution by “continued expansion of settlements” and raised questions about Israel’s “inadequate response to settler violence.” … His comments drew an angry response for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, who said they were unacceptable and inappropriate at a time of heightened Palestinian terrorist violence and omitted to hold the Palestinians responsible for the terror and the stalemate.

Raiders Win in a Basketball Doozy
Monday, January 18th, 2016 | Author:

Missy and I trekked to the Nutter Center on a very cold night and we were not disappointed…  I’ll give the Wright State Raiders basketball team some credit.  Detroit led most of the game, and the Titans from Michigan appeared to have taller and stronger players at every position.  Nevertheless, the scrappy players from Fairborn, Ohio put together a 77-76 victory.

Just Another Democrat Communist
Sunday, January 17th, 2016 | Author:

Those Democrats love the Marxist point of view:

As polls tighten and self-described socialist Bernie Sanders looks more like a serious contender than a novelty candidate for president, the liberal media elite have suddenly stopped calling him socialist. He’s now cleaned-up as a “progressive” or “pragmatist.”

But he’s not even a socialist. He’s a communist.

Kerry is an Idiot

Rest assured that this is a bad omen:

Secretary of State John Kerry declared that the world became a safer place today as the Obama administration repealed sanctions on Iran.

Are Republicans and Democrats Different?
Thursday, January 14th, 2016 | Author:

I’m not typically a reader of Vox, but this is an interesting article:

Democrats tend to project their preference for policymaking onto the Republican Party — and then respond with anger and confusion when Republicans don’t seem interested in making a deal. Republicans tend to assume the Democratic Party is more ideological than it is, and so see various policy initiatives as part of an ideological effort to remake America along more socialistic lines.

Marxism in Vogue in Western Academia
Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 | Author:

What can you say?

One of the great lessons of the 20th century, paid for with the suffering and blood of hundreds of millions, is that communism was a failure in both economy and governance. This was demonstrated repeatedly with the fall of the Soviet Union, the switch in China from communes and central planning to capitalism, the vast slaughter of the Khmer Rouge, the breakdown of the Cuban economy, and the starving prison house that is North Korea.

The one place that Marxism has succeeded is in conquering academia in Europe and North America. Marxism-Leninism is now the dominant model of history and society being taught in Western universities and colleges. Faculties of social science and humanities disguise their Marxism under the label “postcolonialism,” anti-neoliberalism, and the quest for equality and “social justice.”
