America destabilizing? Who wins with that?

Things happen very fast in real life and it is hard to keep up sometimes. We see technological changes on a daily basis, we see cultural changes in lifestyles and things like music and clothing happen almost as quickly.  What I never thought I would see is a destabilization of the underlying country like I am seeing these days.

America is as one President said years ago, "one generation" from destruction.  I have watched in my lifetime the rise of America to greatness in the nations and now headed for the dustbin.  This great experiment of individual freedom, protected by law and understood and supported by most people, is under a barrage of attacks.  Customs and culture shared as a American life are now derided and mocked.  Whether it is traditional family life, religious beliefs, the "Golden Rule" or respect for others believing in American exceptional ism, America is under siege.

I say this with a heavy heart.  When I was born in 1950, my father and his generation had been out of the war against fascism for only five years.  America was settling down into its normal life.  {People were living a calm and peaceful existence.  The 50's were for the most part a decade where Americans became the leaders of the world.  President Eisenhower governed over an America on the rise to greatness.  Sure there were things that had to be resolved such as getting rid of segregation for the 10% of Americans who were black.  And Eisenhower did.  But for the most part people led their lives in a calm, traditional way and there was peace.

Unfortunately, the children of those brave men and women who fought and defeated fascism, took things for granted and became "agitated".  That is, the one's in colleges.  Professors had always been liberal but now it appeared they were also agitators.  They polluted the minds and beliefs of people and most were, in my opinion, closet socialists or communists.  The students were their tools.  Those young people who should have been learning how to spell and do math were being taught how to protest.  Free Speech in Berkeley, California, led by Mario Savio, was the initial protest that I became aware of. Savio of course became a "professor" later and went on to pollute more minds.

So America started to have problems almost exponentially after the assassination of President Kennedy on November 22, 1963.  I think his murderer, Lee Harvey Oswald, was a Soviet trained assassin.  Lyndon Baines Johnson then became our President and he certainly had a agenda.  He wanted "civil rights" to be his legacy and to gain them for all he pushed the "Civil Rights Act" and the Voting Rights Act".  Along with the "Great Society" LBJ changed the country for good.  Now there was nothing to stop all people from voting and nothing to stop millions of people getting on the public dole.  The American family was now given the tools of destruction.

My generation, the "baby boomers" were divided into two parts.  The college activists and everybody else.  The everybody else group was much larger than the "activists" but the press made it seem the activists were huge.  Most boomers were just hard working people  living regular lives.  That was not "interesting enough" for the press.  Looking back at the news stories on the Alphabet TV stations, I don't recall a story about the auto mechanic or farmer.  It was a nightly story of the scofflaws at some college or others blowing up some police station.  The die was cast as they say.  Normal Americans were tossed aside for the "if it bleeds it leads" of the liberal press.

The press has always been opposed to anything or anyone "conservative".  Starting with the defeat of Richard Nixon and the press' disinterest in reporting the 100,000 dead Chicago voters that put Kennedy over the top, to the LBJ allegation that Barry Goldwater would "nuke" the planet into oblivion, the press has been shameless. The  Vietnam War, started by Kennedy and LBJ set off the activists of America and led to the election of Nixon, a Republican, in 1968.  It took him and his successor seven more years to end what the democrats started.  During LBJ's tenure, we also saw the riots of blacks across America in the cities.  We saw Watts in Los Angeles burn.

Along with Detroit and many other cities I was perplexed at these riots.  America had passed the "Civil Rights Act" and the "Voting Rights Act" to heal the wounds of slavery and the  "Separate but equal" ruling of the US Supreme Court in the "Plessy v Ferguson", 1896 case. Yet the blacks were rioting and burning down their own houses!  It made no sense.  That apparently has not changed as we see the results of their actions in Ferguson, Missouri (ironic RE: Plessy?) and Baltimore, Maryland.  Baltimore is majority black and run by black elected officials.

Boomers that were the hippies and leftwing activists during the 1960's and early 1970's were smart enough to know they could never make it into the free capitalist society of America.  They decided to become the elected officials and teachers and professors of our young.  Over time they succeeded.  One only needs to see the size and scope of their input into the culture to see the terrible seeds of the demise of America.  These people were the liberals, the communists and the anarchists.  William Ayers and Bernardine Rae  Dorn were just two of these anarchists that became teachers and professors.  Polluting the minds of our you without regard for the truth.  I blame their bosses more though for hiring them.  How is it possible our education system would have these extremists in the classrooms?  So these types were inculcated in every important part of American government, education and jurisprudence.

Over the years these "fifth columnists" of hate and anarchy have undermined the country and it traditions and values.  The word "fairness" has replaced "hard work" and "determination" by the individual.  They are teaching "fairness" and its definition is "take from the doers and give to the non-doers".  If you succeed it must not be your abilities.  If you fail it is because those that succeed took you stuff.  They hardly teach history now.  One thing remains the same however.  The education system is filled with American detractors who are teaching our kids to hate the place. 

Now we see lately the same Supreme Court that ruled in 1896 that "separate but equal" was Constitutional is making and creating laws from whole cloth.   In spite of their role in the very Constitution they swore to uphold.  Undermining the the country from the bench once more.  Is it any wonder there is little respect for the courts and the system?  These actions and the role of political activists on the left serve no one.  They undermine the very fabric of laws, of the system of respect for the individual and the victory over the fascists in the 1940's.  We have to take back the education of our young from these usurpers.  Textbooks need to discuss the good as well as the bad.  The colleges must be returned to a place where free speech is applauded and encouraged rather than banned for "political correctness". 

Lastly but not least, capitalism needs to be taught from the first grade to graduation from college.  It is the greatest force for good ever conceived from an economic perspective (of course nothing is perfect).  I one doubts that, look at the other "isms" in history and if you cannot accept the truth of the freedoms brought by capitalism and a free government of individuals, then I say GOD help you.  If you want all to be slaves on the planet, toss our country and its Constitution and culture into the trash.  America is the last best hope for the freedom of the individual.  If it fails the planet will return to darkness.

  1. Wonderful history lesson Todd. I guess we were among those who noticed. Thanks for your article. You probably noticed Maw Campbell was threatening to harass the local Tea Party during the Parade in the Union today. I remember her attacking them in 2013. How can people call pro Constitutionalist-Bill of Rights people traitors? I thought all those in our government swear an oath to uphold and protect it. Those who don't used to be traitors. Wow! Amazing how truth gets reversed! BMW

  3. Frisch was sure a train wreck over his failed business. I reviewed the liens from his supplier, local, state and federal tax liens. Amazing how he was such a flop. Anyway, that qualified him to run a "non-profit" and get those taxpayer dollars. You just can't make this stuff up.

  6. Illegal murders San Francisco woman. A friend sent me this. Ann Coulter has it right.

    "Yep....Donald Trump was absolutely correct. Diana and I drove right past the spot just 4 hours before the shooting.....
