Socialism, Or Sustainability? Pick One.

August 6, 2018

You can’t have both, Progressives, Socialists, SJWs, Socialist Democrats, or whatever else you followers of that fraudulent 19th Century dogma are calling yourselves, today.

Sustainability is one of the favored warm and fuzzy, smokescreen terms used by Progressives to justify population control, wiping out private property rights and — ultimately — controlling every waking or sleeping moment of every member of the proletariat.

““Sustainability in a general sense is the capacity to support, maintain or endure.” —
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sustainability

You do know that Socialism is NOT SUSTAINABLE, don’t you?

Once you confiscate and re-distribute the wealth, there is no more wealth. Then, you have to start confiscating income, but a growing Taker Class and a shrinking Maker Class makes income shrink and disappear, as well.

What else are the Makers supposed to do, when they see the fruit of their efforts taken by force and given to Takers? More and more of them become Takers, too. They would be insane not to, wouldn’t they?

Sooner or later, it always happens in Socialism. Heard of Margaret Thatcher, SJWs? Does she come up in your politically-correct history books? She identified the fatal flaw in Socialism, the flaw that always brings about Socialist countries’ collapse:

“Sooner or later, you run out of other people’s money.”

When the money runs out, things get nasty. Empty shelves. Food riots. Fuel shortages. Labor camps. Mass graves. In other words, Socialism, which promises free stuff for all, only serves up poverty, oppression and death.

Not for the wealthy “leadership” of course. They live in sheltered compounds, on smuggled goods and offshore accounts, and life goes on — for them. For you Useful Idiots who put them in power, not so much.

It always ends that way, in Socialism. There is no “doing it right.” There is no such thing as an endless source of “other people’s money.” No one will ever change that, with all the grand rhetoric and glowing promises in the world.

Socialism is not sustainable.

Don’t Blame Technology. Blame the Way It’s Used.

July 18, 2018

Well, maybe not.

When I was five or six, I thought our table-model radio from the late ’40s was about the coolest thing around… glowing tubes and room-filling sound from around the world (it had AM and two short-wave bands). It was on that device I heard my first foreign languages, and tuning around on AM at night, I was amazed to hear — from my Indiana kitchen — WLS, Chicago, WWL, New Orleans, WSB, Atlanta, WABC, New York, WFAA, Dallas… and a thousand weaker stations, some in foreign languages, fading in and out of the noise. I had begun my life-long fascination with the magic of radio.

On short wave, I got my first good sampling of languages other than English, beginning with Spanish (Havana, Madrid, Mexico City), and eventually, Russian, Swedish, Arabic, Chinese, Polish… and a dozen other language my parents couldn’t even guess at.

Besides hearing the languages, I learned there was a big, wide world, out there. Even at five or six, I understood there was a battle of ideas around that world. Back then, the Voice of America and the BBC were still proud defenders of Western Civilization, freedom, and other quaint concepts. I heard the English language service from Moscow and Havana, spilling their Anti-American vitriol, and I understood they were talking about me and my family.

That RCA table-model radio gave me the picture of the world I carry around today, for the most part, and the ability to make my own pictures to go with the sounds of Roy Rogers, The Lone Ranger, Jack Benny, Abbot and Costello, The Grand Ole’ Opry, The Shadow, and Gangbusters.

Technology in the form of radio made my childhood better. Technology is neutral. It is what is done with it that makes all the difference.

“Hacking” The DNC — That’s Not Saying Much.

July 18, 2018

What with idiots using passwords like “password,” gullible insiders responding helpfully to phishing emails, and disgruntled employees loading data onto a thumb drive and walking out with it, who needs “hacking”?

The Democrats are like some twit parking his Rolls Royce at the curb unlocked, with the motor running and the keys in it, and then being surprised when it’s stolen.

The Russian Collusion Delusion — Why Should We Believe It, Again?

July 18, 2018

Why are we supposed to believe the “Russian hacking and collusion” story, in the first place?

Well, all 17 members of the “intelligence community” made dozens of unsubstantiated assertions to that effect, and they all repeated each other’s unsubstantiated assertions, and the media repeated those unsubstantiated assertions, and then individual media outlets repeated other media outlets’ unsubstantiated assertions, and politicians repeated the media’s unsubstantiated assertions, and politicians repeated other politicians’ unsubstantiated assertions… so those unsubstantiated assertions must be true.

(It’s also called, “The Big Lie.”)

Watching The Media/Marxist/RINO Volcano Eruption Over Helsinki

July 18, 2018

Listening to the establishment types on Fox and the Marxist Useful Idiots on the other networks agree on the falsehood that Trump, in his meeting with Putin, made some terrible faux pas or other, and didn’t deal with topics they wanted him to, just enhances my respect for him, and confirms my disregard for them.

At best, they continue to be baffled by him because he doesn’t fit their model of the typical, colorless, spineless hack we have become used to as president. At worst, they think he is The Enemy, and want him keelhauled.

This peculiar alliance between Neo-Con/Geritaric Oligarch Party Trump-haters and Marxist/Mohammedan Trump-haters at least helps us identify who the real enemies are in this sub-critical civil war currently brewing. Maybe the Republican-Democrat dichotomy was never real; just a convenient way to split the rest of us apart and keep us weak and quarrelsome.

Those of us who want the republic described in the Declaration and Constitution are being delineated from those who want an authoritarian world order, powered by slaves (‘Human Resources’) and run by grand strategists in a scheme that reminds one of The Matrix.

Some of us are willing to face the dangers of freedom. We have already taken the Red Pill. We are a threat to the machine.

“Democracy” On The Fainting Couch

July 18, 2018

I just reached the threshold of nausea on pompous, self-righteous, melodramatic, lying, ignorant Democrats, RINOs and Marxist Media Sock Puppets swooning and telling us how (hand across fevered brow, teary-eyed and quavering voice, about to swoon and collapse on the fainting couch),

“The Russians HACKED OUR DEMOCRA-CEAAAH!”

What the hell is “our democracy,” anyway? Any lynch mob or gang rape can be a democracy. And how is “our democracy” any different from that?

Once again, you lying Marxist Useful Idiots, we are a CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC, and NOT a “democracy.”

And if you were so intent on protecting the democratic PROCESS by which we elect our legislative branch, why do you roll out the righteous indignation when anyone dares to suggest we require picture ID to vote? Is that because YOUR democracy only works the way you want it to when vote fraud swings the results your way? Well, yes.

Whatever these screeching parakeets are accusing the rest of us of, they are almost always doing — specifically including hacking “our democraceaaah.”

We don’t need help from Russia to “hack our democraceaaah.” We have plenty of Democrats, RINOs, Marxists and Deep-Staters working hard on that, already.

HE’S A LOBBYIST

March 23, 2016

HE’S A LOBBYIST.

Who doesn’t hate K Street lobbyists? If you’ve read EXTORTION, How Politicians Extract Your Money, Buy Votes, and Line Their Own Pockets; by Peter Schweitzer, you know how toxic and corrupting the flow of money and the counter-flow of influence are to the process of governing at every level, from county to federal, and at every step between.

You know that between bribes and blackmail, there is no more than a handful of people in political leadership positions in Washington or in any other body of American government who are not owned or rented by somebody, and/or currently for rent.

What is the one, most damning, yet eminently provable charge a person could lodge against Donald Trump? What does he not only admit, but brag about?

HE IS A LOBBYIST.

His successes in business are at least to a great degree, attributable to his exercise of influence (read: MONEY) on politicians and regulators, and their willingness to do his will. He has admitted to that — and even bragged about it — on uncounted occasions.

HE IS A LOBBYIST not for some third party — a company, a union, an industry association, or for a foreign government, or a massive bank — but FOR HIMSELF. He is a lobbyist for Donald Trump, Inc. He buys, or rents, influence and favors, from people who are willing to do that business with him.

Giving a lobbyist the big chair in the Oval Office, letting him occupy the position any lobbyist would sell his soul to influence, just doesn’t seem like a good idea. Trump is not Satan, and he’s not Hitler or Stalin, or Mussolini. He’s a lobbyist, and I just don’t relish the thought of a lobbyist as president.

Radicalization — What Media and Government Are Telling Us About Muslim Mental Illness

December 6, 2015

In their zeal to avoid appearing “Islamophobic,” the media and some government hacks have revealed some very disturbing characteristics of the members of that political ideology (representing itself as a religion) known as Islam, but referred hereinafter as Mohammedanism. This revelation may just save lives, intentionally or not, if enough people pay attention.

Unwittingly, the media whores and government hacks have offered us convincing evidence of two dangers inherent in that 1400-year-old supremacist death cult, and, specifically, in its members who walk among us in the Western world.

First, they have explained to us that a significant minority of that cult are so mentally unstable and volatile that merely knowing that “infidels” intend to display unflattering drawings or paintings of their “prophet,” can send them into a mass-murdering rage. They told us that about the carnage at Charlie Hebdo, and the attack in Garland, Texas.

Have MSNBC, the New York Times, the Department of Justice, or other arbiters of truth and acceptable behavior ever warned us that Christians, Jews, or — let’s say, Buddhists — are so close to the edge of insanity that they might be provoked to bloody violence by some image? Not that I can recall. But they DO say that about followers of Mohammad.We are supposed to understand that, and act accordingly.

Yes, we are constantly reminded that French cartoonists who caricatured the “prophet” Mohammad were at least partially responsible for their own murder, by Mohammedans.

We are also to believe that the rifle-toting Mohammedans who attacked an exhibit of art portraying their “prophet” in Garland, Texas, should be at least partially excused from blame, because this primitive, impulse-driven cult of killers can be set alight by speech or art work.

So, we have mental instability, manifesting itself as murderous rage, as an important characteristic of some segment of this billion-strong cult masquerading as a religion, all verified to us by credible sources in the media and government.

Second, we are reminded continually that some segment of the above group are so gullible and suggestible that they can be “radicalized” by things they read online, or by literature they pick up at a mosque, or by contacts they make during an overseas trip to the birthplace of this cult, the Middle East. Before reading this stuff, seeing the gory videos online, or attending the fiery sermons of apocalyptic preachers, they are just like the rest of us – minding their own business, going about their lives, being productive, intelligent, considerate members of our communities.

Then, they are exposed (“radicalized,” the government always says) to this propaganda, and suddenly, they are transformed from “moderate muslims” to murdering jihadis.

Their minds are no longer their own. They are radicalized.

They are no longer capable of rational thought, and they have no appreciation whatever of the value of life outside their own cult. They are willing and eager to die in the act of killing “infidels.”

And, importantly, as a result of this “radicalization,” they are no longer in control of their actions, and their victims must take a share of the responsibility for their own suffering at the hands of these zombies. Poor, gullible, volatile savages; they are slaves to jihad. It can’t be helped. Western media said so.

Your radicalized Mohammedan neighbors look, superficially, like the neighbors you once thought you knew. They seem to live in the same house you walked by, exchanging pleasantries or a friendly wave. But they are no longer so friendly.

They have the same faces they had when they first started working alongside you at the office – except, of course, for that new growth of beard that is never trimmed, and the expression that is often contorted by suppressed anger. Their greetings are more brief – even curt — less cordial, and much more likely to metamorphose into argument, seemingly without reason or provocation.

Their children – especially the male children – look at you with a combination of fear, contempt and suspicion that makes you queasy, and more than a little sad.

You seldom see the adult women or female children, after the transformation, because they are covered when in public, and only rarely leave the house, these days, unless escorted by an older, related male. The escorts rarely speak or make eye contact, apart from an angry glare that dis-invites conversation.

What a remarkable transformation. Thanks to the media and our Progressive friends in government, we know that these people seem normal, but they are gasoline-volatile. They seem intelligent, but they are sock-puppet gullible.

News anchors and Secretaries of State have told us so. They are like a glass of water that may, at any time, without warning be transformed into a vial of explosive liquid.

The transformation is so complete that we wonder why we never saw its potential before. We wonder if it was there, all the time, and just needed the right combination of events to bring it to the surface.

We are right to wonder.

And we have the media and our government to thank for explaining this apparent paradox. Now, we know: the Mohammedans around us are gullible, manipulable, volatile and subject to kill those unfortunate enough to be nearby, under the right combination of conditions. There will not be much warning, if we aren’t watching for the signs. If it happens, it is at least partially our fault, for being too close to Ground Zero, and for being ourselves.

Thanks for the heads-up, CNN, MSNBC and Obama. Even though it was almost certainly accidental, you may have saved our lives.

Government Killed Eric Garner — but Eric Garner Helped

December 4, 2014

I have some questions about this case. but first, I’d like to restrict the careless use of the terms “chokehold” and “choked” from the discussion. Does nobody bother to understand the difference between CHOKING and STRANGLING? CHOKING is blockage of the airway, usually at the trachea, preventing breathing. Death ensues in a minute, or less. STRANGLING is blockage of blood circulation to and from the brain, by blocking the major veins and arteries in the neck.

Death from this takes a little longer, but results in unconsciousness in much less time. Both choke holds and strangleholds, on an adult. require two, locked hands or some instrument, such as a rope or necktie, to apply pressure to the airway, veins and arteries, in any combination. The video is poor, but the ME’s report denies any injury to the airway or bones of the neck, making it VERY unlikely that either a choke or strangle WAS EVER APPLIED.

The dead man was obese (MORBIDLY obese, I would say, from the video), and it is a matter of record that he had multiple, chronic medical problems of the type associated with obese men, including but probably not limited to, Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (asthma and “heart disease” are often quoted from the ME’s report), hypertension, kidney failure and other contestants in what was already a horse race to see which killed him before the others could.

The point of the above is to assert that he may have been on the verge of collapse and death before this event. I DON’T rule out that his death may have been made immediate by the stress of his arrest, including wrestling with cops trying to handcuff him, and possibly even sitting or kneeling on his thorax to control him. The continuous pressure of an adult male on Garner’s chest or back, compressing his thorax and impeding return blood flow from his body to his heart, and keeping him from taking a full breath, would have done nothing to help his blood circulation or his ability to breathe.

Whatever happened out of sight of the camera, his respiration was good enough for him to complain loudly enough to be heard in the video that he couldn’t breathe. If you can’t breathe, YOU CAN’T TALK, because it takes moving air to talk. He was talking, and therefore, breathing, during the arrest.

It is entirely possible he was having a heart attack or some life-threatening arrhythmia (irregular heartbeat that doesn’t circulate blood), while the arrest was going on. It may not have been detected until he was in the ambulance, on an EKG monitor, or maybe not even then. Whatever caused the cardiac arrest in the ambulance, the takedown on the street certainly could have contributed to it, but he could easily have dropped dead on the street that day, with no one else to blame, because of his abuse and neglect of his own body.

As far as the force used, that was the result of new laws on the books at the state or city level that were intended to recover lost revenue that was supposed to roll in as a result of absurdly high state and local taxes on cigarettes. As much as New York’s government hates free markets, the forces that drive them are like gravity, and cannot be pushed aside by sin taxes and “revenuers.”

Government greed was the first and most significant contributor to this man’s death, followed closely by his own behavior, short-term and long-term. NOT a police choke hold, but a government choke hold. It probably would not have happened as it did, if New York City and State weren’t trying to choke every last cent of revenue out of their residents, to fund their bloated, inefficient and corrupt governments.

The RNC Is Begging, Again

July 29, 2014

Yes, I have received yet another email from the RNC, begging for money. The tone of this one is a little desperate, suggesting I may have “abandoned the Republican Party.” I decided to reply via this neglected blog, with my responses interspersed in red italics. Enjoy!

 

Dear Friend,

Did you abandon the Republican Party?

To paraphrase another Republican, “I didn’t abandon the Republican Party. The Republican Party abandoned me.”

Chairman Priebus has written to you already this year asking you to contribute to the RNC and renew your membership. But we haven’t received your financial support yet this year.

He didn’t receive it, because I didn’t send it. The GOP only cares about conservatives and the Constitution when it wants our money and our shoe leather to get them re-elected – again. The rest of the time, we are an embarrassment and a burden.

Your past support has shown us that you believe in the Republican Party and the conservative principles we stand for. That’s why we still believe you haven’t given up on the Republican Party yet.

I haven’t given the GOP a dime in over a decade. I HAVE contributed and campaigned for individual candidates I believed in.

So we are giving you one more chance to renew your membership with the Republican National Committee.

Thanks for one more chance to tell you all to go to hell, so I can get on with my vetting of individual candidates, versus the candidates selected by the Party Elite, who are, more often or not, no better than democrats in their actions.

Right now you are handing the advantage over to Democrats. That’s exactly what President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid want you to do. With committed Republicans like you sitting out in 2014, the Democrats are able to continue their liberal rampage on conservative principles.

There was a time when I believed this pack of lies – that the only choices were the handpicked hacks from the GOP geritocracy, or hand the country over to the Democrats. No longer. As I said, any money I have to spare will go to candidates who respect the Constitution, not to Big Business surrogates and RINOs.

2014 is our last chance to step in, step up, and take back the Senate to regain Republican control in Washington. Don’t turn your back on the Republican Party now.

I don’t intend to give the US Senate to a bunch of Democrats masquerading as Republicans. I don’t WANT “Republican control of the Senate.” I want CONSTITUTIONAL control of the Senate.

Renew your membership with the Republican National Committee now and support our fight to defeat liberal Democrats.

Ain’t happenin’, Scooter. Buzz off.

Thanks,

Tony Parker

RNC Treasurer
