Seven billion people. Wow! The planet has that many bodies and brains and still the place is a mess. Not only is the planet going to have another complete orbit around the sun, it, in many places has returned to the "Dark Ages". I am no soothsayer but I do pay attention to what is going on around ths little blue marble. I also am a history fan and it looks like we are repeating a lot of it.
Here we live in a country like no other ever existing on the planet and half of the people here have their heads up their hienies! Rather than taking the time to actually "live" and enjoy this special place and this special time, we have "intelligent" people who can't see the proverbial "forest for the trees"! These smart people cannot find anything to be happy about (they don't even like Christmas!) and they constantly complain about everything. No silver linings exist for them. Having only come out of the caves or off the savannah a few thousand years ago, these people who complain don't get it.
We are subject to the negativity these people muster every day. American liberals, and now their bosom buddies the democrats, must have a disconnect in their noggins. They are now so PC they have to try and force their will on things such as religion, Christmas, police protection and education. We see a Smith College Provost woman apologizing to the students of her school for saying "all life is important"! She was bombarded by PC students and others for changing "black lives matter" or some such statement. I mean, come on. Of course black lives matter. All lives matter (well except for jihadists). But bowing to PC the "smart woman" apologizes.
Of course we have the black and white race hustlers keeping the heat on about the shootings and deaths of minority men by the police. As we all mourn the loss of life, we must also not allow these hustlers to make up their own facts and disregard the responsibility of the men who lost their lives. Facts are not on the side of the race hustlers. The facts are on the side of the police or in the case of Trayvon Martin, George Zimmerman. In the case of the man who died of a heart attack after being taken down by the "cigarette" police (sent there by the liberal Mayor of New York City), the facts must include the victims actions prior to the incident but disregarded by the hustlers.
Hundreds of young black men and many other innocent civilians killed by young men are at an epidemic level. I have listened to many interviews of blacks on this issue and they refuse to accept their own personal responsibility in these murders. They still blame the "white man" for slavery as the culprit to try and deflect the reality. The gangs fighting for "turf" and sales areas for their drugs are the reason. Very simple. The other "fact" is the demise of the "black family" over the years. LBJ and the democrats passed laws in the 60's that sped up the destruction of the family. They replaced DAD with Uncle Sam. So a couple of generations of a dad-less family have brought us all this violence in places like Chicago. Liberals refuse to see this truth though and they double down with more "apologies" for this sociopath behavior of the criminal element.
As far as I can see, "no fault" divorce, abortion on demand (and paid by our taxes) and enablers of bad behaviour at all levels of government and society have made this mess. Personal responsibility, consequences for bad actions, sanctions for criminal behavior, no respect for elders and instant gratification have led to many of the problems. I see the lack of respect for teachers and other "first" responders in our society. Lawyers are now attached to the hips of grievance seeking parents and employees. We spend hundreds of billions of our hard earned dollars in America fighting each other in court! Who makes the money? You know who! So perhaps a good look in the mirror would help?
Our country has become so paranoid about "equal outcomes" that we have almost destroyed the concept of personal responsibility and of "capitalism". Those two concepts have propelled our country into the stratosphere of success in the history of the planet. But it has also allowed people of bad intentions to freely spread their hate and disinformation to those people who don't really pay attention.
I blame the PC police for the demise of our education system and the ability to debate any issue. Our colleges were supposed to be the place off limits to limits on things like debates and discussion. They have been morphed by the PC police into "gulags" in my opinion. Can't talk about things that may be unpleasant apparently. Hell we have women accusing male frat houses of gang rapes, (Duke LaCrosse players and now UVA) without a hesitation by the PC press to get the truth before posting the stories! When confronted with the lies we see these smart PC people say, "well, the story may be false but the narrative is true". Say what? So not even the destruction of lives by lies and innuendo soften the hearts of these PC police. Remember all the "child care molestation" convictions of the 1980's? Most were fabricated stories and many innocent people went to prison or committed suicide because the PC police were in charge. All emotion and contrived "facts" to fit the "narrative".
Now we are debating a piece of trash report from US Senator Dianne Feinstein and her democrat committee. This report was put together by democrats and not one person was interviewed in the 6,000 pages! Not one CIA employee was brought in to testify! All the report's info came from emails and other forms. No testimony. Of course it is simply a democrat slap at the CIA because of some hurt feelings by a couple of self important Senators. Never mind that 3,000 people were murdered by Jihadists and the country was expecting another attack. I guess DiFi would rather see a drone blowup someone rather than a little "sleep deprivation" done to a terrorist. My goodness, does she even see the ridiculousness of her words? Thanks goodness former Vice President Dick Cheney is out setting the record straight. Along with Jose Rodriguez, a former CIA interrogator. (California has not been served well by Feinstein or Boxer). (Catellus and Boxer's bile)
So somehow the PC police make some kind of moral equivalency between a Jihadist murdering people and America feeding Ensure to a prisoner. (oh that's right, we must call them detainees). And we are letting the "free press" get away with stories that do not even question these PC lies. I guess until we force the PC professors teaching our young people these PC terms we can expect more. But thanks to blogs and other internet outlets we are fighting back.
Today the price of crude oil on the free market is under $60 dollars a barrel. It has dropped from over $100 just last summer. I do not have the answer why but it is a refreshing sight. Regular Americans, poor and middle class, may now have a few bucks more in their pockets. Well at least every state except California. We will see this drop in prices evaporate on January 1, 2015 when the state will add huge taxes to our gallon of gas (tthanks Steven Frisch and SBC of Truckee). PC police at work. People like me fought this kind of phony baloney science of "global warming" but we lost. Now the poor and middle class will once again take a huge hit in their wallets for a LIE! The money will go into some fund and then be redistributed through a "bank" of "carbon credits". Who knows who will get your money. Probably the cronies of those elected to the state legislature (democrats). So I predict it will not be long that people wake up and start a initiative to remove this "global warming" lie from the laws of California.
So 2015 will hopefully come about. Since our enemies around the planet (and liberal democrats in America) really don't like America, we can expect more and more disorder. I pray every day that people will see the error of their opinions on hating this special place called America. I do wish all of you out there peace. But being a realist and fighting the scourge of PC here and around the planet, I am cautioly optimistic.
