You know what the problem with hydroxychloroquine (+ zinc and, if in the early-to-mid stages of COVID-19 illness, azithromycin) is???

It dawned on me today as I listened to Neil Cavuto as well as Dagen McDowell pump Moderna stock due to their vaccine breakthrough [smiley=fingerscrossed.gif] BUT totally knock (the) hydroxychloroquine+ (COVID-19 treatment regimen) and try to poo-poo any doctor who would not go along with the poo-pooing full-throatedly.  Totally contrary to the TDS-prompted, initial, speculative reportage about Trump's having investments in hydroxychloroquine, ::) the problem is as follows...

There is NO [smiley=money.gif] money in it for the fat cats [smiley=greedy.gif] and big pharma!!!

It is like the exact inverse of what we have been led to believe by the MSM (and, say, Juan Williams, whose opinion is obviously, merely political because if not, then he is just THAT totally ignorant on the matter, which is hard to believe).

Hydroxychloroquine is dirt cheap! [smiley=twocents.gif]  There is NO money in it!  Big pharma does not want to mass-produce it!  Investors see no incentive!

Seriously,... if you find yourself HATING a medicine because of politics ([smiley=furious.gif] "I HATE you, acetaminophen!"), ::) you need to get your head checked and start consulting some different news sources!  It is worse yet if you think of yourself as moderate or apolitical in your views.  I mean that is the definition of a political pawn!

ONE of the root causes of what we are seeing transpire with these public displays of hatred, vengeance and anarchy is the TOTAL one-party rule of these inner cities.  Mind you, my point is not partisan, per se, though the one-party, deep-blue rule of these inner cities far exceeds, say even, Alabama-level red.  That said, the point here is that whenever ONE party is in such TOTAL control, they do not need to keep their promises because they know they got your vote.  When a party leader can truthfully say out loud about an inner-city district that her party could run a glass of water against the other party's candidate and win (look it up (https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6927283/Nancy-Pelosi-takes-shot-AOC-says-glass-water-D-win-seat.html)), that is an insult to the intelligence of the people of that district.  She is saying that they own your vote and they can do whatever they want!  The bottom line is that when there are two parties up and running robustly in an area, the people can play the parties... against each other.  But, when there is only one party running the show, the party plays the people... against each other! :-/

I hear people wonder out loud, "Why loot and set fire to these businesses, moreover, that are largely black-owned/operated?  It makes no sense to destroy and burn down your own community."  (Of course, if the problem was just that, the solution is easy,... right?  Gulp...  That adjustment has already begun to be made, in fact. [smiley=nervous.gif]  But, I digress...)

Folks, start waking up, and smell the coffee!  An incident is just the spark.  The toxicity filling the air is ideological and opportunist.  It does not matter who the "business owner" is.  The problem is that there is a "business owner".  The targets of this toxic groupthink are capitalism, Americanism, Western civilization.

I fear that this is going to be news to most [smiley=caughtonthecan.gif] and that this question is not even going to register for some.  But, what did we think was going to happen when what the youth have been being inundated and indoctrinated with (at the expense of a good education, mind you) for at least the last quarter century in our colleges and universities and high schools and now even middle and elementary schools, public for sure and now even private, is anti-capitalism, anti-Americanism and anti-Western civilization??? [smiley=dunce.gif]

My daughter's fifth-grade teacher is going for her Master's in education (so-called Schools of Education are the ultimate root cause of the downfall of education in America and a significant root cause of all this mayhem we are witnessing, but that is a different topic for a different day).  Mind you, what follows here is only anecdotal, but it is also just the tip of the iceberg...  When we went in to our daughter's school last week to pick up her belongings from her desk and locker, I asked the teacher about how her education classes have been going.  She exasperatingly said how unbelievable it was how anti-colonialism and the position that, and I quote, "Everything white is bad," pervaded the program. [smiley=ohshit.gif]

Folks, we want less civil disobedience and more riots...  The recipe is simple...  Keep on romanticizing world history and globalism, glorifying socialism and communism, and promoting emotionalism and relativism in our schools and politicizing our classrooms while unrelentingly bashing capitalism, hypercriticizing America's history, eschewing objectivity and rationalism, and degrading white people!  Stated in more concrete terms, keep on teaching the amazing feat of the construction of the pyramids of Egypt while minimizing slavery in Egypt (see the lengths in theorization that "scholars" are willing to go to towards these ends (https://ancientegypt.fandom.com/wiki/Slavery),... "permanently consigned artisans" ::)) but emphasizing slavery in colonial and post-colonial North America while deemphasizing the American Civil War and not even mentioning the period of indentured servitude and, say, any of THIS (https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/facts-about-slavery/) (and that is from leftwing Snopes)!

Mind you, to do "critical history" is to play with fire [smiley=flamewar.gif] and should not be the way history is primarily done,... warned the guy who coined the phrase, Nietzsche (look it up (https://partiallyexaminedlife.com/2015/10/15/philosophy-of-history-part-xiv-friedrich-nietzsche-history-as-art/)).

There is a fine line between the spirit of justice and the spirit of revenge!  What we are witnessing at the moment is NOT the spirit of justice. [smiley=no.gif]  You can go ahead and finish the disjunctive syllogism yourself...

Outside of black antifa members and supporters like CNN's Don Lemon (citation (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq224Fub-XA)), the refrain "black lives matter" is just used by antifa!  For them, racism, no less George Floyd, is NOT what this is about.  They have NO compunction about targeting and taking the lives of black men, Patrick Underwood, David Dorn: https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/may/31/dave-patrick-underwood-named-black-fps-officer-kil/ and https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2020/jun/2/david-dorn-retired-st-louis-police-captain-killed-/!!!  Oh, and no arrests.  Probably never will be...

Mind you, antifa are not that many in number (and most of them are wussies), so they wait for some tragic event like one of the nineteen unarmed white nine unarmed black men who were killed by police in America in 2019 (citation (https://bwi.forums.rivals.com/threads/41-unarmed-people-were-shot-and-killed-by-police-in-2019-19-of-them-were.269184/)), like what tragically occurred last Memorial Day Monday, and then they use black people's anger, hijack their protest, and use black protestors to fight for antifa's anti-American, Marxist cause!

Communism is the end that justifies the means.  Racism is just a means to that end!

"All lives matter," generally speaking an obvious truth even if banal, has nonetheless been deemed by Black Lives Matter to be racist.  I kind of get their point, which is that black lives matter, too, and so pointing out the obvious, general truth that all lives matter misses the point.  Fine (even if dismissing obvious, general truths is not such a good idea).  Then, the comeback is that "Blue lives matter."  Well, sure,... but that ain't workin'.  That just sets up a tit-for-tat us against them.

Is it not time for the BLM movement to take it to the next, fully forthright ethical level, indeed, not by dismissing the obvious, general truth that all lives matter but by combining it with the idea that black lives matter, and advocating for the position that "ALL black lives matter"???  #AllBlackLivesMatter

How can one make the "ALL Black Lives Matter" movement happen???  Well, try to incorporate in the movement's platform and protest signage and rhetoric some information and photos of these black people who have died trying to do good ...

... OR, MOREOVER, these black people who have been dying en masse, which would be more indicative of "systemic or institutional racism", insofar as it exists, than the 10 unarmed black people whose lives ended at the hands of police in 2019 (this is the Memorial Day weekend leading into the Floyd incident) ...

At least 50 people were shot in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend. The next day, another 28 were shot, including a 5-year-old girl standing with her family (https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/breaking/ct-overnight-shootings-05272020-20200527-ehwgqp6qxjg6hb3declx7mnyji-story.html).  TEN DEAD!

A little, FIVE-YEAR-OLD girl! :'(  For God's sake, you want support for a movement that advocates for raising awareness about the (systematic/incessant) loss of black lives in America,... alongside George Floyd's and Amaud Arbery's faces and stories, get the faces and stories of this little girl and these TEN black people who lost their lives in Chicago over Memorial Day weekend as well as David Dorn's and Dave Patrick Underwood's out there!  Then, you have a wholistic movement that a whole country (and not just opportunistic,... Marxist antifa members, wealthy athletes and entertainers, and privileged academics, media pundits and politicians) can get behind!

What transpired between Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams on "The Five" this past Thursday is a microcosm of the bad-faith discourse coming from the left and the all too commonplace capitulation to it on the right.  I cannot believe they did not correct the record, that Gutfeld did not demand it!  Williams either made a false statement intentionally (that is, lied and perhaps gaslighted Gutfeld) or unintentionally (that is awfully convenient) and filtered what Greg said through some racially hypersensitive kaleidoscope, that is to say, "heard what he wanted to hear", which with all (un)due respect really is symptomatic on the left because those on the authentic left only believe in subjective truth, my truth, your truth, her truth, ::) whereas those authentically on the right believe in OBJECTIVE truth, that is, for all the highfalutin rhetoric around the idea, simply, truth independent of oneself (a resource (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0kPINNhHGNw)).

The paradoxical irony is that is precisely why groupthink emerges on the left.  Forced thought through social engineering, re-education, bullying, etc., is the only way to get on the same page on the left because you do not have a notion of objectivity there to do it.  The left's appeal has to be made via the emotions because rationality demands an acknowledgment of objective truth and reality.  So, reason goes out the window, and emotionalism runs amok on the left.  Leftists have to convince you of their position by making you FEEL the way they feel instead of appeal to you intellectually.  That is why leftist rhetoric seems so mindless.  They just seek to make you angry and feel hurt like themselves presumably (that is, if they are not merely manipulating you).  Of course, as history tells us, this is not sustainable.  It self-destructs because the (objective) contradictions cannot be contained, but A LOT of damage to humanity is done both before and during the process.  We are seeing it unfold before us right now in America.  Some peoples have been living with it for generations like in China, where the slaughter of protesters at Tiananmen Square is still OFFICIALLY denied and censored (look it up (https://www.history.com/topics/china/tiananmen-square)), and so Uighur Muslims can be "re-educated" (look it up (https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/china-calls-it-re-education-but-uyghur-muslims-say-its-unbearable-brutality)) and Falun Gong members can be persecuted (look it up - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution_of_Falun_Gong). [smiley=no.gif]  But, I digress.

ANYway, here is a link to that excerpt from "The Five"; in particular, you want to listen to Gutfeld starting at 5:49 and observe what happens, and then go back to what Williams said between 4:36 and 4:40: https://video.foxnews.com/v/6161759157001#sp=show-clips. [smiley=ohshit.gif]

WTF, right? ?.?.?  What the hell was Gutfeld apologizing for???  It should have been the other way around! [smiley=fumin.gif]

Moving right along, the show continues on, and there is a segment wherein Lawrence Jones makes some excellent points about inner-city-friendly conservative and (small-government) libertarian policies.  My way of stating the case, inasmuch as there are racist institutions, systems and structures, surely among them are:
1) (failing) public schools,
2) (protectionist) police unions, and
3) (intractable) one-party governance.

So, in the face of that mess, what do conservatism and (small-government) libertarianism have to offer up?
1) School CHOICE: give the money to the PEOPLE instead of the school systems, which then find themselves caught in the burdensome regulatory net created by all the strings attached to those government funds.  Literally, per a dictionary, "free" does NOT mean "public"! [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif]  We have been sold a bad bill of goods,... which over time in great measure has been maintained to protect the teachers unions, the diminishment/elimination of which conservatives and libertarians are all for, and so there is a secondary, residual benefit.  Kill two birds with one stone!
2) Support for police-union reform if not abolition.  Unionism is ultimately at philosophical odds with conservatism and libertarianism.  Unions are a liberal, leftist thing.
3) Simply stated, just the very presence of another functioning political party means the people have AN ALTERNATIVE.  As I addressed in a post above, with two functioning parties, inner-city folks can get the benefit of having two parties fight for their votes and hold each other to account.  That is how it is supposed to work. [smiley=twothumbsup.gif]

I don’t talk in here that much but I will say this: Trump has and continues to fail this country on the pandemic. He has told so many lies about that and so many other things, we can’t count them all. Also he has built absolutely ZERO feet of his New wall. This man clearly cannot lead us through a serious crisis. The proof is evident in us leading the globe with 25% of cases and deaths, with no end in sight. He is still leaving it up to the states, what a fool. He cares more about the economy than American lives. Peeps from his own party and former staff have said similar things. Republicans are jumping ship by the millions. The even created a Republicans Voters against Trump group. We will see what November brings. At least he is not sleeping in the bunker anymore. I guess 2 nights was enough for him to feel better/ safe.

So, in other words, in relation to the points made on this thread heretofore, this guy (whose opinion obviously does not exhibit MSM-implanted TDS [smiley=LMFAO.gif]) supports this vision for our country: American Protests (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/protests.htm#bookmark).

Mind you, I have not really even talked partisan politics on this thread! :-/  Seriously, do a search on this page for the words "Democrat", "Republican" or "Trump"!  There is more of that in this guy's one post here than in ALL of mine combined! [smiley=no.gif]

"All revolutions, beginning with the one in France in 1789, have promised equality, justice, and fraternity for all, but have mobilized popular energies by creating an atmosphere of hatred, by inflaming popular resentments.  Somehow the leaders of these revolutions expected that hatred passing through the crucible of revolution could be transmuted into universal love.  But in fact the hatred that mobilized them emerged as a concentrated hatred of the masses and of humanity after the revolution.  ...  History has proven that to expect love to emerge from hate is either absurd or insane."

President Trump lies according to whom...???  Oh, the MSM,... the far-and-away, BIGGEST of all liars and deceivers!!!  Well, President Trump surely has not been lying when as early as 2017 he portended that soon the left: communists, Marxists, antifa, anarchists, BLM, etc. would be coming for the likes of Jefferson and Washington:

Trajectories can change, but the trajectory this "movement" is going in is one not of the Founding, the Constitution and reformation but reconstitution and re-formation à la the transformation we once heard spoken of,... a "morally righteous" refounding acceptable to the mob and not in the image of a bunch of old, white, slave-owning bigots.  If left unchecked, it is just a matter of time, perhaps one year (if Biden wins), perhaps five or ten, but it will come to fruition, and the Marxists, communists and leftists in academia and education are arguably the architects of it.  Indeed, because the roots of this cultural revolution lie in the schools, it runs deep and will not be easy to uproot.  So, that trajectory is going to be difficult to alter, and impossible if disigenuousness, tendentiousness and deception are subtly and unwittingly -- or not so subtly and not so unwittingly -- perpetrated by MAINSTREAM figures evidently prone to misperceptions...

Turns out that was BS: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/nation-world/national/article243746852.html!

Indeed, the findings of a 15-agent FBI investigation notwithstanding, Bubba, like Jussie, is sticking to his story and calling skeptics "simpleminded",... you know,... for the sake of unifying the country, of course. :-/

Generally speaking, yeah, America's founders largely were slave owners (https://www.quora.com/How-many-of-Americas-founding-fathers-were-slave-owners), but they had the foresight to craft a constitution and lay the foundation for a nation to abolish it! [smiley=patriot.gif]

They could not just do it on the spot.  It had been legally institutionalized (most notably, as more than a punitive life sentence via the Anthony Johnson case (https://face2faceafrica.com/article/the-fascinating-story-of-anthony-johnson-the-black-man-who-was-the-first-to-own-a-slave-in-the-u-s)).

Just cause Its history.
So, they can topple a king, trash the articles of confederation,  form a federal government, coin money, guarantee freedoms(for white males), form a national bank, annex louisiana, fight wars, put down rebellions, create laws, write a docturine, tax, yet can not end slavery?   They could of done it, but they didn't want to do it.  Many states had actually banned slavery, but the southern states would of left the convention or confederation if it was banned.    They did put section 9 of article 1 in, to possibly end slavery in the future, however, they chose to punt the issue in order to form a government. .   They didn't even consider slaves as a whole person, slaves were 3/5ths of a person the constitution population count.  The compromise actually gave the south a huge population boost.   (12 of first 16 presidents were southern)  

And then you have the fugitive slave laws that were passed.    The bottom line is this, the south wanted slavery.    The north didn't care enough and prioritized the government over the cause of slavery.  However, the characterization that they couldn't of changed the laws is misrepresentation of the facts, especially since it was a debated topic.   Most northerners naively thought it wasn't worth the fight and it would die out.......but the then the cotton gin came along and the number of slaves increased dramatically.     And southerners wouldn't have agreed to form a country if it was prohibited.      

in my opinion, I would not consider the founding fathers  patriots around the topic of slavery....... Not even close.

I don't understand your point about the first slave being an indentured servant.     The first slave in that article was an indentured servant from 1622.   By the mid 1600s, indentured servitude lost favor and the states had passed laws that permitted slaves from Africa. It was much more profitable  than indentured servants.    So I am confused how an indentured servant/ slave from 1620 ties to our founding fathers, unless your saying it was legal to own slaves.   But if that is the case, they were forming a new government, so they could of changed the laws.  And as referenced above, some states had laws against slavery at the time of the writing of both the articles of confederation and constitution.  

I am not even going to discuss abortion, tds, or other comments made.   


**I use the term northerners and southerners as a  generalization of states popular opinion.   Of course there were exceptions.

What I meant there was that it was a deeply ensconced economic institution with the power of law behind it.  REGRETFULLY, besides all the factors you mentioned at the Convention, but unlike all of the examples you gave at the very beginning of your spiel of what they did do, ending slavery -- AGAIN REGRETTABLY -- would be more legally analogous to confiscating someone's land (which in and of itself, as the strategic historical rollback of Marxist critical theory tells us, is a can of worms that you could also open).

But, anyway, I appreciate your taking the time to further describe the context.  Interpretations can go either way.  I take what you have shared as bolstering my position. [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

If slavery was going to stand, are you suggesting they should have been counted as less?  ANYway, they were counted that way for the purpose of representation.  If they were counted as more, the South's tax burden would have increased but so also its representation in Congress.

Ugh...  I just heard this[smiley=bs.gif]again... from the mouth of a Johns Hopkins University "professor", mind you!!! ::)  It would be laughable if it were not so sinister... and painfully stupid!  The rhetorical move of the leftist liberal of countering the legitimate concern for black-on-black murder by pointing out that white-on-white murder is the same, that is, the liberal leftist claim that just as a black person is more likely to be murdered by another black person, a white person is more likely to be murdered by another white person, is a red herring (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_herring) of diabolically epic proportions insofar as it turns our attention away from a real-world problem!

    One, the point contradicts their very narrative of pervasive, systemic racism.

    Two, DEGREE matters!  The murder rates are incomparable, and to suggest otherwise is maniacal.

    Three, it is a single, cherry-picked data point, cited in support of an oversimplified "analysis"!

I had composed the message below over two weeks ago and kept getting side-tracked by other matters...  I am getting it up now during its waning moments of relevance.

I wonder what the Redskins are going to change their name to: the ??? Redskins?  After all, regardless of what unhinged, self-loathing, white liberals and a very small BUT loud group of (Oneida, New York) Native Americans tell you, the MOST common school nickname on Native American reservations is Redskins.  BUT, how can this NFL team continue on with that white slave owner in their team name?  How offensive?  It is ridiculous. [smiley=madashell.gif]  There are OBVIOUSLY enough people -- indeed, way more people -- offended by the very utterance of the name of that unpatroitic (with respect to slavery), so-called "president".

Now, my reflections from about sixteen days ago...


Moving right along in the Cultural Revolution (http://www.fantasyfootballer.com/protests.htm#bookmark) vis-à-vis the NFL...  It seems that we have been debating the wrong part of this team's name all these years...

Indeed, I contest the definition you cited.  The term is not disparaging.  It may be offensive.  But, that is surely not the way it is meant.  That judgment is entirely subjective.  This is a quintessential example of the relativism the left propagates and uses to destroy the foundations of a society!


As it turns out, what really is more offensive here, "Redskins" or "Washington", according to our groupthinking cultural revolutionaries?  We have arrived...  Such is on the table of discourse!

Maybe they should change it to "DC".  But,... wait...  The "C" stands for "Columbia", which is based on Christopher Columbus!  The horror! [smiley=scream.gif]

Someday it will just be "The District", perfectly generic, insipid... and totally Orwellian!

First, "Redskins", then "Columbus", then "Washington"...  That is the trajectory of the revolution.  If you do not like it, stop being willfully ignorant, sloughing it off and tacitly letting it happen!

Hell, what about American football itself?  Are we really on the "right side of history" deriving enjoyment from it?  After all, it is offensive, indeed, loathsome on a whole host of seemingly legitimate fronts to many people (whose sensibilities the revolution can exploit).

We really are at the point where it is stand up for reason and reasonableness and against ill-logical, victim-based narratives or stand up for ill-logical, feelings-based narratives and against reason and reasonableness.  To quote one of my favorite philosophers: "Choose your fate...  Live or die."

To be clear up front, we are going to have a very hard time pulling up out of this cultural revolution -- if we even can -- because we finally have a generation's worth of people indoctrinated accordingly right under our noses, mind you, in the educational system.  It started in higher education and finally trickled all the way down to elementary education over the last ten or so years.  So, anti-Americanism, anti-Westernism, anti-capitalism, anti-Christianity are embedded deep in the psyches of those ideologized accordingly in the schools.

With that said, while the progressive, leftist cause has been advancing thusly in the educational arena, on the political front the progressive strategy is simple and just requires patience.  The left negotiates with a long-term vision in mind.  The right negotiates from a position of preservationism but with what is "believed" to be best for now (double entendre perhaps intended) in mind.

Therefore, while for the right compromise is seen as the middle ground we have to live with moving forward, the left sees it as progress!  And, here, simply, is how they have done it...

Let's say the left wants some set of 100 things, and the right wants none of it, 0.  They compromise at, say, 50.  The right thinks such is politics; this is the compromise we all have to live with moving forward; we only gave them half of what they wanted.  The left thinks, "We are halfway there."

Next time, the left, aptly called the progressives, still wants 100.  50 is where things stand...  The compromise is 75.  Time goes by; they continue to ask for 100.  The compromise is 87.5.  And, on and on and on: 93.75, 96.875, or whatever... until the right's not giving the rest just seems curmudugeonly...  Alas, "100"!  VICTORY!

This may take years or even a couple decades but it is bound to succeed...  The progressive strategy is to always hold to, craft policy according to, and negotiate from their original position and criticize the present reality, that is, the prior compromise which then the conservatives are left to defend.

The progressive left is not compromising their ideals and not abandoning their ideas, and so the conservative right, when negotiating, even when compromising, needs to remain principled and logical.

We study history not to right past wrongs.

We study history not to repeat past wrongs.

Hopefully, that registers...  Nevertheless, it is worth asking...  Why is this?

We are imperfect beings.

The former endeavor is negative, reactive, deconstructive, regressive, nihilistic and filled with righteous indignation.  It requires some of us to function as the judge, jury and executioner of others not present and then, because of that, take it out on some other... others.  Being imperfect, THAT CAN GO TERRIBLY WRONG.

The latter mission is positive, proactive, nonjudgmental, reconstructive, progressive and optimistic.  It requires us to work together and move forward, not without looking back but without living in the past, that is, as if we were in the past.  We may not get it totally right, but it cannot go terribly wrong because of the positive nature of the endeavor.

So, some museum in San Diego I never heard of decided to change its name from the Museum of Man to the Museum of Us: https://www.newsweek.com/san-diego-museum-changes-its-name-effort-promote-inclusivity-decolonization-1522250.  Aside from the fact that I do not think that in human history we have ever seen such an ineffective and incompetent "intelligentsia" that all they can do is try to solve things via pronoun usage (they surely do not know what to do about this virus except politicize it), I do not have a big gripe with it.  Maybe I would if I had ever heard of and had a vested interest in it, like, say, the (still) white-slave-owning-scum-founding-father (former) native-American-slur NFL football team, but I digress...

What I am concerned about is that the museum officials say that they have done this so as to promote "decolonization".  Huh, okay...  The only question I have -- and anybody who is sane and cares about the future stability of this country for the sake of our children and grandchildren should have -- is...  Where does "decolonization" end??? [smiley=scream.gif]  Stop and think...  That is a scary question.  In the spirit of my immediately prior post, are we moving forward or being taken back?  Are our hopes, dreams and visions for tomorrow, or are we turning the clock back?  If the latter, how far back are we going, and what are the stops along the way?  We had better start asking these questions because this s*** is dangerous. [smiley=shitfan.gif]

That said, the current topsy-turvy state of affairs is not only an opportunity for the leftists.  It is also an opportunity for "us".  We do not have to continue down into the abyss of the infinite regress of the illogic and ill-logic of the left.  The best way we can nonviolently fight back -- and we are as perfectly set up to do so as we will ever be with public-school teachers and professors, unlike nurses and grocery-store clerks, reluctant or unwilling to work -- is, for God's sake, to get our kids out of the public schools and mainstream colleges and universities, where this venom is being injected into them.

[smiley=ohshit.gif]  It is shocking how the brainwash of the MSM so thoroughly cleanses one of one's senses.  This guy just parrots what the MSM tells him (the Bob Woodward tapes ::)), and like a good little, insignificant worker bee [smiley=bee.gif]loses his hivemind and must seek out any even whisper in public of a truth about our President's successes and bury it, even on a measly message-board thread on a rinky-dink fantasy-football forum already buried on the depths of the internet.  There is not an insight, argument, or acknowledgment, no less refutation, of a point made or even something informational to be found in this guy's posts.  Guy just drones on [smiley=bee.gif]repeating the MSM narrative and opinion as if he thought it himself and as if WE ALL are not totally surrounded by it and aware of it.

I cannot believe I am even going to entertain such drivel, but regarding the virus response, well, he and the WHO and the CDC and the democrats who distracted us from it with impeachment fantasies who, indeed, eschewed attending the hearing on it in favor of spending time on impeachment and the democrats advising people to go out to festivals and the movies and their MSM enablers... blah, blah, blah.  Regarding self-important Bob and his tapes, if listened to, they tell a nuanced story of a guy trying to tamp down fears so as to avoid panicking people and provide a basis for hope.  For God's sake, do you even remember the democrat and MSM reaction to President Trump's moratorium on travel from China?  This guy surely still believes the "Charlottesville good people on both sides" MSM lie.  What a sucker! [smiley=smileytrash.gif]

Oh, and because I refuse to let this get buried...

There are many in the mainstream of the democrat party that do NOT consider Nicolas Maduro and Hugo Chavez to be dictators (and indeed revere them), but most in the mainstream of the democrat party think Donald Trump IS! [smiley=uh.gif]  It is either that or they are just bald-faced lying propagandists and panderers... playing with fire.  And, there are people who have drunk so much of the corporate MSM Kool-Aid and hate Trump so much that they canNOT think straight, canNOT consider the big picture and are voting to put this party that is drunk with power -- and its indubitable ideological trajectory -- into power!  This is how (sh)it happens... when the so-called resistance and the establishment are on the same side! [smiley=yikes.gif]  If the democrats win in November, just be ready for the dawn of an era of a brand-new, totalitarian kind, the likes of which has never been seen before, the most pernicious kind of top-down collectivism, predicted but yet to have come to fruition, that of CORPORATE COMMUNISM!  It will take groupthink to new heights!

I predict that the Republicans are going to lose HUGE this election. It is sad to see so many diehard lifelong Republicans have come out and publicly announced that they are supporting and voting for Biden. The Dems will have all 3.
Maybe they will implement some strategies that can save some American lives, since our current President seems to be doing very little about the pandemic, or even take it seriously.

Your focus is the pandemic, I see, Joe, and I understand that.  I just think that it is ultimately the CCP's fault and that they must be taken to task for that lest it -- and worse -- will happen again, and it does not seem like Biden is the one to take them to task.  Heck, it seems like he is more likely to collude with them.

Furthermore, I think one of the biggest atrocities of this pandemic has been the MSM's dishonesty about treatments and in particular hydroxychloroquine + zinc.  Why do you think you canNOT find zinc on store shelves anymore?  Case in point, Member's Mark used to carry a 1,000 mg Vitamin C + zinc pill.  I used to take it regularly.  I still have a handful left in my last bottle from about six months ago, which I had to buy then off of eBay for like double the price (last listing it was over quadruple the price and sold out looong ago: https://www.ebay.com/itm/233573616215).  Now, Sam's Club is back to selling the old, standard 1,000 mg Vitamin C + rose hips, and you canNOT even find the one with zinc as a discontinued product on their official website anymore.  WHY IS THAT?  Why would the MSM and dems LIE about a medication that, if nothing else, is totally SAFE, has been taken for DECADES,... and almost assuredly works in the early stages of, against mild cases of, and, most importantly, prophylactically against the CCP Wuhan coronavirus, especially when taken in combination with ZINC???  Somebody's got it, and to be anti-conspiracy theory about it, that combination is being taken by medical professionals the world over.  But, why be disingenuous with the rest of us about it?  Not enough zinc?  Not enough hydroxychloroquine?  NO MONEY in hydroxychloroquine???  I do not know, but something is odd.

Moreover, unless the virus somehow disappears, the economy WILL tank in 2021!  It is probably going to be bad, in any event.  Only Trump's outside-the-box, anti-establishmentarian economic policies and business acumen managing debt will give us a fighting chance.  Biden and the dems will just use the financial crisis to advance socialist policies! :'(

Your points say absolutely nothing about Trumps plan about a test and trace program. Hell we are STILL waiting for his health care plan FOUR years later and he still has nothing. No has no health plan.
One thing Trump does have that Joe Biden doesn&#8217;t, that would be a personal Chinese Bank Account.
How can you say he is a good businessman when none of his properties make money. That&#8217;s odd.

  • False,... had (and who cares, anyway; he is an international businessman who had been considering doing business in China), actually, twice false insofar as (the) Biden(s) may not have a Chinese bank account, BUT they are swimming in Chinese MONEY.

Allowing emotions to be played to in the public sphere inevitably causes the advancement of mediocre authoritarian ideas by mendacious, power-hungry people lacking intellectual honesty and wisdom... BECAUSE doing ANYthing can be justified by an emotional appeal.

I know American politics is America's concern, BUT especially given that I lived several years in and indeed am married to this side of the world and have visited some of these places...  On behalf of my country, for what is apparently about to happen, moreover, while the international community along with China and Iran cheers about the results in America,... I apologize to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet, Mongolia, the Uyghur Muslims and Falun Gong members.  I am so sorry for the lack of wisdom and abundance of willful ignorance of the apparent majority of my fellow Americans.

The media's ROLE is NOT to quickly declare that there is NO evidence.  Quite the contrary, the media's ROLE is to SEARCH FOR evidence.

Mind you, I am only talking about "knowing roles" and "staying in lanes" here.  Maybe, just maybe there ends up being no evidence, BUT when those who are tasked to investigate and look for evidence claim right away that "there is no evidence", the reaction from the citizenry has to be one of a healthy skepticism... lest democracy be inevitably, eventually lost... for the very existence of democratic republics relies on an objective media just as the existence of totalitarian regimes relies on corrupt media.  To those who want to play coy about the one-sidedness of the MSM, please know that you are playing with fire.

Just remember...  The same people who are saying "there is no there there", to quote the Messiah, and not covering and telling you to pay no attention to the Trump-team press conference yesterday are the same people who put the country through a resistance movement that began right after the 2016 election, ran through a frivolous investigation into so-called collusion (under the guise of concern over election interference on the part of Russia, with whom the democrats themselves were in fact in (in)direct communication), an impeachment (which was grounded on substantially less than the known evidence regarding the questionable Biden family dealings), and the despicable slander of an otherwise decent man in, then, Supreme Court Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh (based on, literally, NO evidence, save for the testimony under oath of one person).  That is to name just three of the "drags through the mud" the democrats have put us through over the last four years.

Sworn affidavits are, in the broad sense of the term, evidence!  Disinformation and willful ignorance are at an all-time high.  It is the harbinger of an era of censorship in the offing.  :-/

Post by Stegfucius on Nov 22nd, 2020, 9:48pm
There will be a common thread here between the following two topics, disparate though they may seem at first...  It regards the programmed herd [smiley=borg.gif] mentality...

The demoncrat-led [smiley=demon.gif] MSM did not foment hatred for President Trump because some of his behavior is loathsome... because, well, it is.  They wanted you to hate Trump so that you would turn a completely blind eye toward their misdeeds and be totally disinterested! [smiley=yawn.gif]  Indeed, all the "reportage" about how Trump will not leave the White House, for which there was literally no evidence, was all done to plant a seed in the public consciousness. [smiley=sinister.gif]

Next, in seemingly very different "news" but more closely related to the nature of the website here...

My enthusiastic suggestion to "Redskins" [smiley=redskin.gif] owner Daniel Snyder regarding his team name and a new logo is to stick with their new, generic but old-fashioned name as a basis, BUT make it like these European team names and go with Washington FT.  As for the logo, call the scumbag leftist liberals' bluff and since the name is generic, throw George Washington's face, maybe the image of him and the soldiers crossing the Potomac River, on the helmet and build the team's image around our great first president, and sit back and watch the liberals' heads explode!  Now, to be clear, the name should not have been changed to begin with but for the corporate extortion of Snyder led by FedEx during the mini-Cultural Revolution this past summer.  I have NEVER in my whole life heard the term "Redskin" used other than as a team name,... PERIOD, no less as a racist slur, and neither have you.  Insofar as you honestly believe it is a racial slur, that is you not thinking for yourself and giving in to the emotionalist propaganda of the MSM over your own experience,... period.  The ONLY other way I have ever come upon the term aside from its being used as the name for the Washington FT was its usage as the most prevalent team name for schools on native American reservations.  Indeed, more Americans and especially Redskins fans should be offended at being told they have been complicit in the propagation of racism by referring to the team as the Redskins and indeed during football games chanting and yelling out, "Go Redskins!", as if there was a shred of racism involved in any of that.  But, hey, getting rid of the Redskins name is just another way of pushing the American Indian farther out of the American consciousness.  After we get rid of all the American Indian-based names, then we can forget about them for good and, like is so en vogue among the "intelligentsia" these days, get to erasing that from our history.

Trump is in the way.

Biden is not.  In fact, he is the opposite of in the way.  He is not just weak.  He is on the take.

I am so backlogged with stuff to share here...  I took the time to compose this several days ago and meant to post it on a thread on this forum-based website (like here) but am receiving neither the confirmation email so as to be able to activate the account nor assistance; I have registered with two email addresses now, to no avail.  Hence, I am just going to post it here "on the trusty old Gridiron"... even if it is somewhat non sequitur...

Here is the thread on which this was supposed to be posted:
https://www.degreeinfo.com/index.php?threads/jill-bidens-dissertation.57638/.

Here is what I have to say about it and the discussion on it over there:

This whole discussion is the problem.  We wonder why our educational system is in shambles.  This is why.  The quality of the work; the defenses of such quality and the nature of those defenses (along partisan lines), and the fact that it is done in the field of EDUCATION all contribute to the why!  The politicization of education is why!  Post #58 on this thread, which is rife with partisan half truths, false claims, willful ignorance, inconsistencies and fallacies (too much to pick apart), is why.

Biden's paper here is a joke!  Dubbing it a "magazine article" was generous.  The only thing I can say in defense of it is that it is not literally as bad as, say, Tucker Carlson portrayed it, but figuratively it pretty much is.  I will not even say "relatively" because I know how bad it has gotten in academia: this butt nugget of a so-called "dissertation" is just the tip of the pooberg that academia is pushing out.

ALL dissertations are publicly available.  The call here for others to share their dissertations is at best tendentious, at worst ignorant.  People want to maintain their anonymity (on an issue like this), especially in and around the one-sided environment of academia.  Moreover, people do not want their work to be unfairly evaluated through a skewed political kaleidoscope.  I mean, how did Jill's garbage of a dissertation become a discussion of Melania Trump?  But, I digress.

The main text of a dissertation typically runs between absolutely no fewer than 150 pages and to as many as 500 pages, and sometimes they exceed that.  The average dissertation is probably around 250 to 300 pages.  Master's theses run about 75 to 125 pages on average.

The main text of this "dissertation" is barely 80 pages soaking wet... as they say.  Standard dissertation formatting is 1" margins all around.  Biden's is clearly not that.  It looks to be about 1.25" margins all around.  39 cited works in a double-spaced reference section, which is typically single-spaced with an extra space between entries.  Additionally, on the one hand, there is no preface, which being up front ought to demonstrate depth of thought to justify its presence and so requires some intellectual effort.  On the other hand, notwithstanding the space-consuming tables within the main text, 49 pages of unrigorous content come in the form of appendices, that is, a whopping 38% of the whole piece.  Bottom line, the work exhibits several of the techniques undergrads use to increase the number of pages of a term paper, and in terms of length it is the size of a Master's thesis.

Ed.D.'s are a joke, and this disseration is why!  This is unserious work!  This is not what scholarship (at the doctoral level no less) is supposed to look like.

Granted I am in a different,... most would say, more academic field, but at 198 pages of main text, my dissertation was short as was my 10-page bibliography, which is nevertheless comprised of 141 cited works.  This is setting aside my preface of nine pages and substantive acknowledgements section of five pages.

I do not even know whether or not Jill Biden herself is insisting on being called "Dr. Jill", but the mainstream media is insisting on it on her behalf.  It all misses the point, though.  As a convention, aside from medical doctors, for whom as we all know the title "Doctor" is even used by itself without the doctor's name, in academia the title "Doctor" is typically only used on campus and/or by students for professors/instructors with a doctoral degree, which in the Academy is typically a Ph.D., and always with the person's (last) name, never by itself.

At any rate, even the thought that Biden's dissertation is what doctoral-level work is or should be is scary!  Any brief, tendentious defense of it could be the eventual epitaph on the headstone of the American Academy.

"Friend"-to-"friend", Joe, would you please send me this literally mindless, 30-seconds-to-compose, troll-level drivel by private message or text so that I can 1) avoid wasting my time and just ignore it at least until I have the time to comfortably respond to it instead of 2) being compelled to take you to task a.s.a.p. on this somewhat public forum, which is supposed to be for serious, sincere discussion, when I do not really have the time for this non sequitur nonsense??? [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif]

What you post here is exactly what I want us to be above on this thread.  All you have done is post a rhetorical question that communicates to anybody with a half a brain that you believe that any person who disagrees with your point is insane or at least worthy of condemnation and scorn.  How you are treating me here with these thoughtless, nonengaging, nonresponsive, glib messages that take less than a minute to compose exhibits the behavior of an anonymous, online troll, to which I am going to respond in kind... [smiley=lickmyass.gif]

You are obviously fully indoctrinated and incapable of even fathoming any other side than the one which you have been programmed by the establishment to believe, no less of thinking as a free person for himself.  Indeed, the fact that you cannot even edit out the encoding of your message (when you presumably do your copy-and-paste) [smiley=LMFAO.gif] makes it seem as though you are a bot, [smiley=borg.gif] which frankly speaking is not far off.  As evinced by the very nature of your post, you cannot believe not everybody agrees with you!  How can someone of such obviously modest intellect come to be so self-assured that anything other than agreement with his position is so absurd that all he has to do to evoke approbation is express his position as a mere rhetorical question without any elaboration or justification?  Oh, by not thinking for yourself, you stupid pawn!

After all, what has happened at our 50 State Capitols?  For that matter, as awful as that one day last week was, degree matters!  Ashli Babbitt, unarmed, slain in our Capitol, where are her murals?  Yeah, I understand the history, but in the present, a human life is still a human life, and degree matters, and if not, then all human lives are not necessarily human lives, and all lives do not matter... as they keep telling us over and over and over... until you get used to it,... until you repeat it. [smiley=gonecrazy.gif]  Aaron Danielson?  Who is that?  (Yeah, go "Google" him because you do not know off the top of your head.)  Bernell Trammell.  Right, all black lives do not matter.  (Again, get to "Googling", right?)  Collateral damage...  Well, not really...  Like the officers maimed or killed, they were hits!  Collateral damage would be more like the young men killed in CHAZ or CHOP, during the "summer of love".  The officer who died as a result of last Wednesday's events, he was just in the way.  But, who cares?  It is not all lives matter, we are told!

What if the shoe were on the other foot last Wednesday?  What if it was done in the name of BLM instead of MAGA?  Could you imagine what Statuary Hall would look like now?  You probably cannot imagine it, or at least you are not supposed to imagine it, not allowed to imagine it, [smiley=nownow.gif] and that is right where the establishment wants you, that is, unable to think for yourself, unable to think independently, unable to think.  Just stay high, shut in, locked down, on disability, in the basement repeating their one-line lines of pablum like a little lobotomized drone even on obscure websites like this.  Guess it makes sense...  While they torpedo the bigger platforms like Parler, they need losers like you to stifle the opposition on rinky-dink, ghost-town fantasy-football websites.  The classical liberal notion of "loyal opposition" does not exist in socialistic authoritarianism, which indeed necessitates "crushing opposition" from top to BOTTOM, which requires good little foot soldiers like DOLFAN here.  They have called President Trump a tyrant for four years.  What tyranny?  There have been more top-down tyrannical activities so far under the "administration" of President-"Elect" Biden!  But, you only know that if you are experiencing and thinking for yourself.  If the likes of, say, the Lincoln Project is doing your thinking for you, your brain is just a side dish at the establishment's Hannibal Lecter buffet.  When they -- and you -- taste yours, though, they realize that what has been served up out of your unbelievably thick skull [smiley=skull.gif] is more Salò than Silence of the Lambs, [smiley=shitfan.gif] and so they send you with your poo-eating grin [smiley=shiteatingrin.gif] on your merry, little way to do their bidding at FantasyFootballer.com.

But, I digress...

To reduce what has been going on to false hope ex post facto about an election is nothing but MSM and demoncrat [smiley=evil.gif] propaganda!  This is about WAAAAAAY more than that or Trump!  It is about 40+ years of political correctness, which you, Joe, just campaigned and voted for a heaping serving of for at least the next two years, perhaps the next four years, and potentially for the indefinite future insofar as there was something to those hundreds of affidavits and several pieces of evidence of, to quote Guiliani,... eh-hem, no... Ellis,... eh-hem, no... Powell,... eh-hem, no... Wood,... eh-hem, no... BIDEN, the "most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics."  What is unfolding is a product of pent up frustration about this toxic, unpatriotic, America-hating, anti-colonialism, reverse-racist, indoctrination-filled, education-light PC culture running amok and destroying the country's future by rotting the apples [smiley=newbie.gif] on the tree from the root up via our schools, the advocacy for which had started to become out in the open but will now go into hyperdrive.  It would not surprise me if Biden appoints "Dr." ::) Robin DiAngelo (yeah, "Google" her; I am sure you are like...  [smiley=uh.gif]) to some post in his administration, that is, if she is willing to give up her ultra-lucrative gig in the private sector getting government and corporate contracts to do "consulting" work. [smiley=greedy.gif]  (Then, after looking up Ms. DiAngelo, wake up from being woke with some Heather Mac Donald!) [smiley=uponreview.gif]  At any rate, in terms of actual, on-the-ground movements, what you are witnessing now dates back, ironically, to how Bush Derangement Syndrome started really galvanizing conservatives in 2003 through the Tea Party movement that started in 2009, and the Convention of States coalition that started around 2014, and all of which has now culminated in a solid base of patriots [smiley=proudAmerican.gif] behind President Trump and the MAGA doctrine.  These are the people that the democrat-socialist left wants "reeducated" and "deprogrammed".  You might say, "Oh, that is just the fringe left," but these ideas are being entertained,... floated,... eh-hem,... trial-ballooned on MSNBC and CNN!  It is so as to set the stage for the introduction of the "light" version of that, which will come through, to bring this around full circle, our public schools and the implementation of, say, the 1619 project, which seeks to deconstruct and refound America by attacking the Republic right at its foundation, 1776! [smiley=patriot.gif]

Bottom line, it is unsustainable to continue saying, as one haughty jackass once said, that "there is no there there" as regards the arguments, suspicions and findings of one side whilst legitimizing, justifying and dignifying just about each and every accusation, allegation and supposition from the other side with massive investigations, media blitzes, brutal character assassinations, arrests and even presidential impeachmentS!  It is no longer just the leftist creep. [smiley=zombie.gif]  They are goose-stepping right out in the open... and fast!  A few posts ago here I referred to the coming of "corporate communism".  Consider https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j69qtiWAdNQ,... or not, and return to your MSM trough of bilious swill regurgitated by the likes of George Conway, Steve Schmidt and Don Lemon.

If you have any capacity for free thought left in you and the information sources you consult cited and promoted theories that justify and/or minimize the riots and violence that took place over the summer and still taking place until now in places like Portland but incessantly seek to delegitimize and exaggerate what has been going on over the last few days, and your position reflects their position, at the very least you have to hit the intellectual smelling salts and consult an information source from the other side, whatever that other side is!

You do not censor total lies.  You expose total lies.  That is what research and logic are for.

You censor truths!

Indeed, censorship is for covering up truths... and lies! [smiley=no.gif]

Not only is this the case ipso facto, protecting lies is done proactively when, for example, Twitter deletes tweets of screenshots of embarrassing/controversial/nonfactual tweets which were subsequently deleted by whatever given leftist.

Through lobbying and campaign donations, the line between public and private, government and private enterprise, has now been thoroughly blurred.  The quid pro quo has gone too far...  It is no longer that government establishmentarians just do the bidding of private entities (crony capitalism), which is bad enough, but private entities now do the bidding of the government!  Consider in this light, on the one hand, what they did to Parler.com (https://www.parler.com) and, on the other hand, what Robinhood.com did (see here: https://www.thesun.co.uk/tech/13909745/google-robinhood-reviews-wall-street-bets-gamestop-reddit/)!  In the former case, big-tech corporations, self-servingly mind you, did the the dirty work for the government swamp, and in the latter case, the government swamp, in a stealthily self-serving way, [smiley=secret.gif] turned a blind eye to the shenanigans of big corporate players; in BOTH case at the expense of the folks, the little guys, the lower-middle/middle/upper-middle class,... the bourgeoisie!

So, the old conservative argument that private companies should be allowed to do what they want in the name of free enterprise no longer works because the line between the government establishment -- demoncrats and rinos, and their lackeys -- and big corporate America is nonexistent.

The public-private distinction is becoming all but meaningless, and there does not seem to be any way to untangle it as long as demoncrats and/or rinos are in power.

Now, consider all that in light of the fact that members of Congress cannot be sued for things they say on the floor of Congress.  In recent history, Harry Reid was most notorious for using this privilege in despicable ways to push falsehoods out into the ether for the MSM to propagate and for the low-information, default "left-leaner" to consume. [smiley=hungry.gif]

And, demoncrat lackeys in the MSM and Congress are floating the ideas of a "Federal Truth & Reconciliation Commission (https://nationalfile.com/aoc-progressives-pursue-truth-reconciliation-commission-for-trump-supporters/)" and a "Reality Czar (https://www.armstrongeconomics.com/world-news/press/new-york-times-called-for-reality-czar-to-imprison-anyone-they-call-is-fake-news/)", and the Biden administration requested questions be submitted for prescreening (https://disrn.com/news/biden-administration-asks-reporters-to-submit-questions-ahead-of-daily-white-house-press-briefing/) before lackey, careerist Psaki's press briefings.

Truth is what we, demoncrats, MSM, academia, Hollywood, tell you it is (Swalwell says President Trump is a Russian agent -- TRUTH).  Lies are what we tell you they are (Swalwell sleeps with Chinese spy -- LIE). [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif]  We tell you the truth.  They lie.

Happy New Year!  It is 1984 in America!

"I wholly disapprove of what you say and will defend to the death your right to say it." - Voltaire (https://quoteinvestigator.com/2015/06/01/defend-say/)

Censorship divides the people.  Freedom of speech brings people together... because it puts people in the position of defending -- not just their own rights but -- the rights of those with whom they disagree.

There is SO MUCH that is distressing right now in America and internationally that is REAL... and way beyond the almost totally fictitious and always hyperbolic twaddle about the prior administration, the fraudulence and tendentiousness of which we seem to learn about almost daily anymore (like the latest revelation about the fake news about Russia's putting bounties on our soldiers in Afghanistan (https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/the-russian-bounties-story-was-apparently-fake-news-all-along/ar-BB1fGUwy)).  The list of hyperbolized twaddle includes but is not limited to: a little crass talk (as if Biden and the demoncrats speak politely to and ABOUT people who disagree with them), supposedly annoying "tweets" ::) (which was only annoying to those who are enslaved by the mainstream media and obviously easily annoyed), President Trump's mental fitness (while "uncle" Joe [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] is apparently just fine) and supposedly 30,000 lies (anyone even counting now?), the [smiley=demon.gif] demoncrats [smiley=evil.gif] dragging ONE republican president through TWO partisan impeachments based on scant evidence and poor reasoning and mostly just a mind-numbing amount of repetition of anonymous, illegal leaks and tendentious exaggerations and lies (which only those enslaved by the mainstream media believed [smiley=zombie.gif]), etc...

How could SO MANY things be going SO BADLY right now under Biden and there be such overall positive, even fawning coverage by the mainstream media while SO MANY things were going SO WELL under the prior administration but with NONSTOP NEGATIVE reportage by the MSM?  That this is happening is unsurprising, of course, but that this is allowed to happen is baffling.

I usually do not actually feel distress over matters political...

HOWEVER, notwithstanding issues that are arguably even bigger and more distressing, including the ongoing besiegement of urban communities of color across the country for going on a year now by democrat-backed groups, at least one of which we are told does not even exist,... :-/ I am REALLY, GENUINELY distressed about these [smiley=proudAmerican.gif] truly "mostly peaceful" trespassers [smiley=patriot.gif] from ONE AFTERNOON in January, like the Viking-hat [smiley=viking.gif] guy, who are really being hunted down and indefinitely jailed by our government.

[smiley=ohshit.gif]

...

Mind you, to do "critical history" is to play with fire [smiley=flamewar.gif] and should not be the way history is primarily done,... warned the guy who coined the phrase, Nietzsche (look it up (https://partiallyexaminedlife.com/2015/10/15/philosophy-of-history-part-xiv-friedrich-nietzsche-history-as-art/)).


Critical Race Theory (CRT) is NOT the critical history about which Neitzsche philosophized... and warned (which every leftist scholar tendentiously leaves out), no less history simply and straightforwardly taught at the granular level with objectivity (the very notion of which CRT attacks -- see how that works).  It is social engineering, and it is a business, a racket indeed!  It is Marxist poison! [smiley=stirthepot.gif]

Let me get granular about this...

My boss is a smart, highly educated, mild-mannered, relatively reasonable man, albeit of the left, a big supporter of Obama and then Sanders.  Soon after the 2016 election, he, knowing where I stand, boldly said to me, "We now have people in power who dislike our daughters," and he cited the story of the middle-eastern Muslim gal who claimed that she had been attacked by a group of white Trump supporters donning MAGA garb.  He and I are both fathers to persons of color insofar as we both procreated with Asian women.  Anyway, by the time of that conversation that story had already been proven to be a hoax, about which he acted surprised :o after I darted to my office to print out a couple articles about its being a hoax to present to him. ::)

In the meantime, back in reality, [smiley=doseofreality.gif] my daughter -- whom we send to Catholic school, so she is largely shielded from the CRT nonsense, but not entirely as it is the schools of education that are the problem -- after a lesson they had in English class (FYI, a bastion for Marxists) on BLM, had her best friend, a Filipina girl, tell her that she was better than her (morally) because she, that is the friend, had darker skin than my daughter.  WTF?!?! [smiley=annoyed.gif]  That is social engineering that is intentionally screwing our children's heads up!  That is not history.  It was not even history class!  Anyway, that is just the tip of the CRT iceberg that I am personally aware of in my personal and professional midst, and again my daugther attends Perochial school!  The infestation of Marxists in public schools is probably unimaginable. [smiley=no.gif]

And, now with the demoncrats in full power of the federal government, [smiley=yikes.gif] the propaganda promoting and defending CRT is through the roof... while people, especially people of color, especially African-Americans, are dying on the streets.  Here is an example of just one of many pieces that recently headlined the MSN newsfeed, which I leave as the home page for my browser just to stay apprised of the MSM propaganda MSN is spewing:

https://www.avclub.com/amber-ruffin-schools-white-america-about-critical-race-1847084978.

The whole spiel this Ms. Ruffin gave along with this article written about it is just dumb from the silly, stale, contestable, old news she erroneously says Fox News feeds its viewers to some poll she tendentiously cites about how only 8% of high-school seniors know that slavery was the main impetus of the Civil War, which is almost surely not so much about the lack of teaching of that element as it is the lack of teaching of the Civil War, period.  In the meantime, both the lack of education on the Civil War and the disassociation of slavery from the Civil War are advised by CR theorists who think the North was just less racist and were not really fighting to end slavery.  Truth be said -- and worse yet for Ms. Ruffin -- there is an argument made that the Civil War was more so about states' rights, which,... eh-hem,... CR theorists indeed latch onto and promote.  CRTers also like to point out as a factor that mitigates the moral righteousness of the North vis-à-vis slavery that the economics of slavery was no longer beneficial to most northerners.  In any case, her claim is both tendentious AND ignorant, a feat that is near impossible. [smiley=gimmeabreak.gif]

But, hey, it is all good...  We are a good people!  We got Juneteenth and pan-African flags flying in Chicago, LGBTQ+ flags flying in front of our courthouses and BLM flags flying at our embassies,... and the flying of American flags [smiley=patriot.gif] being complained about on MSNBC (https://www.the-sun.com/news/3042699/nyt-msnbc-mara-gay-american-flags-distubed/) by people who cannot do rudimentary math (https://www.huffpost.com/entry/brian-williams-math-michael-bloomberg_n_5e627335c5b647a5bd314e05).  All is right in America!  But, I digress...

As the complaints that CRT is indoctrination grow louder, get ready for the next move of the cultural revolution: education is indoctrination, anyway! :-X

The article actually goes from claiming that the coverage in the media is that anti-Asian crime is primarily perpetrated by Blacks to claiming that the coverage in the media is that anti-Asian crime primarily, to the tune of 75% of news stories, perpetrated by white males.  Without even batting an eye at the gross inconsistency there, the latter statistics are taken as confirming the actual numbers, but they are taken from a study done between 1992 and 2014.  Uh,... okay.  Of course, the article starts by referring to crime and "incidents".  Soon it is just incidents.  And, eventually, the claim is that anti-Asian hate crimes are being overhyped.  After all, as the article points out, most of the anti-Asian "incidents" since the pandemic began are just verbal harassment and shunning, and what we really need to be focused on is anti-Black hate crime.  Of course, the last names of the researchers are Asian, seemingly Chinese and Indian: Wong and Ramakrishnan.  It is all so rich... and an onslaught of stupidity [smiley=gonecrazy.gif] meant to divert our attention via Gish gallop away from what really is going on.

Bottom line, where are Asians discriminated against the worst?  In leftist demoncrat-run inner cities and at leftist demoncrat-run colleges and universities. :-/  Who'd a thunk? [smiley=LMFAO.gif]

If you subscribe to the belief that the end-justifies-the-means demoncrat left, who lust for the power to manifest their ideological ends[smiley=evil.gif]and so are unfettered by truth as a value, project on to their adversaries, that is, true conservatives, right-wing libertarians, constitutionalists, commonsensists and even moderates and classical liberals, what they themselves are up to, then the following claim made by a leftist academic has to be UTTERLY CHILLING: [smiley=cold.gif] https://www.salon.com/2021/07/11/could-genocide-really-happen-here-leading-scholar-says-america-is-on-high-alert/. [smiley=yikes.gif]

After all, Jacob Chansley, [smiley=viking.gif] whom you can see with another "insurrectionist" ::) HERE (https://rumble.com/vh52u9-watch-u.s.-capitol-police-gave-protesters-ok-to-enter-capitol.html), really is a political prisoner,... and there are others!!! [smiley=no.gif]

The only daylight that exists amid this hyperpartisanized morass is with those liberals who pride themselves on being "independent" and/or "moderate" but do not understand -- have not tried to understand -- the big-picture implications of the policies and political rhetoric and movements they support or at least turn a blind eye toward.  Actually, the feel-good, tacit justification at, say, the backyard barbeque, [smiley=whatever.gif] is almost the bigger problem.  It is really why we find ourselves where we are, [smiley=parachute.gif] like years of financially comfortable liberal, moderate and even right-leaning parents shrugging off [smiley=shrug.gif] or at least not paying attention to what is being taught in the public schools... and now in the private schools too.  Indeed, the lack of self-awareness and outright delusion at this point run very deep.  The degree to which a book like White Fragility is accepted is proof in the pudding.

This will not be easy [smiley=fishing.gif] -- I know all too well -- because of the lack, nay, absence, nay, ignorance, [smiley=dunce.gif] nay, willful ignorance, nay, proactive renunciation [smiley=furious.gif] of logical, objective, demonstrably deep thinking and well-rounded facts.  There are some who claim to be moderate and are willing to vote republican [smiley=elephant.gif] (albeit typically establishment rino) but with whom the intellectual gap canNOT be bridged. [smiley=patriot.gif]  You have to just cut the line on them.  They are frustrating because their positions on this or that policy matter taken in isolation are not always entirely unreasonable, but they in an obstinate way canNOT see the bigger picture no matter how clearly it has been painted, and yet their position remains (unadjusted to new information and) not particularly cogent... because of an overabundance of self-confidence [smiley=swollenhead.gif] and lack of self-awareness that lead to a lack of logical, objective thinking and exposure to well-round facts.

So, finally, with all that said, for those readying for the impending intellectual battle, here are a couple resources from a clear thinker and diligent fact-finder: [smiley=thumbsup.gif]

We are living in a time of lies meant to destroy and extreme propaganda... to a degree that it is even manifesting in sports and, yes, even the beloved sport upon which this site was once predicated back in its heyday. [smiley=helmethead.gif]  And, 'tis ALL just for the sake of the desire for political power, and those sucked in are just pawns.

Contrary to the NFL's new segregationist "National Anthem" policy and this new commercial of theirs (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzBWMUW1juY), I hate to break it to the naive, brainwashed pawns among you, but the NFL is NOT everything... obviously. [smiley=dunce.gif]  It is THIS:

That is, it is NOT racist!  America is not racist! [smiley=patriot.gif]
