What's The Ill Charlottesville? or The Revolution…

Unfashionable as it is to say, President. Trump was right to a degree in his comments on Tuesday.   Now he was wrong about some things. Few, if any, of those demonstrating against the removal of the statue of Lee from the re-named Emancipation Park were people of good will who are opposed to an Orwellian re-writing of history. Most appear to be “Alt-Right,” an odious mix of: Neo-Nazis; Klansmen; white nationalists; and other white supremacists   But he was right in stating that not everyone opposing the rally was on the side of the angels.   Along with the various and sundry clergy following in the way of , there were people following in the way of the Spartacists, who fought in the streets with the Freikorps in Berlin and Munich in the wake of the Kaiser’s abdication after World War I.   The conflic…

IS THAT YOUR FUTURE ?

  See that ? Could be YOU in a couple of years. Be that in the US or here in Europe. Old age poverty will increase at a thousand percent rate. Too many people, an aging population, not enough jobs for people being able to pay income tax, and therefore the savings for social security and r…

Racism – the province of ignorance.

  My premise is that racism is based on ignorance and primitive tribalism.   We share 99% of our genes with chimpanzees. We are really nothing more than a third race of chimps. We also share nearly as much with our other close relative – the gorilla.   Human beings are extremely…

Humanizing the Other

A truly lovely morning. We slept late and have been slow to get moving. Last evening there were storms about, some severe, but we missed out on the rain; the past few days have trended much drier and the gardens could use a soaking, so we’ll likely need to water.   The robins are growing…

Is Anonymous antifa? They sure are unAmerican!

You are about to read a list of 45 goals that found their way down the halls of our great Capitol back in 1963. As you read this, 39 years later, you should be shocked by the events that have played themselves out. I first ran across this list 3 years ago but was unable to attain a copy and it has …

How do we determine what is good?

Beginning in the 1960s, a new form of political strategy evolved. The two-party system had worked well (at least if you were a party hard-liner) for several decades, but the synergistic sixties brought about a great deal of change, and the political parties evolved as new constituencies emerged and …
