It’s not easy being history’s supervillain. In fact, in recent years, suicide rates have spiked among white men between the ages of 35 and 65 https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/reading-between-the-headlines/201305/white-middle-age-suicide-in-america-skyrockets. This is going to be a composition that will include our people’s history in Europe, our lines of descent and how we got to the place where we are today. It all started 45, 000 years ago, as the last ice sheets were receding and hunter- gatherers spread throughout Europe. These indigenous hunters were of swarthy complexion and many were blue eyed, as well. Around 7,000 years ago, there was a movement of people from the Middle East, who introduced farming into Europe and were apparently of fair complexion. At last, from the steppes of Siberia, came ( to borrow a phrase from Mr. George R.R. Martin) horselords who effectively conquered Europe and introduced a patrilineal society around 4,000 years ago, with the help of domesticated animals ( such as the horse) https://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-29213892, https://www.thelocal.de/20140918/study-reveals-migrant-makeup-of-europeans, https://www.thoughtco.com/ancient-societies-central-asian-steppe-172847, https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3569545/The-founding-fathers-Europe-DNA-reveals-Europeans-related-group-lived-Belgium-35-000-years-ago.html. Since that time, Europeans have shot up to become some of the most successful international players in history. European males have spread the ideals of Christianity, patriarchy, honor, community and individuality all over the globe, with the Age of Discovery followed by the Age of Reason, freedom of religion, thought, expression and creativity has gone to levels unmatched by any nation in the history of the world https://www.britannica.com/topic/European-exploration/The-Age-of-Discovery, http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Age_of_Enlightenment, https://www.gresham.ac.uk/series/the-rise-and-fall-of-european-empires-from-the-16th-to-the-20th-century/. What happened? Well, in relatively recent years, it has pleased contemporary society to cast the young to middle- aged white male into the role of history’s supervillain. I fact, I would posit that those who accuse white males of a history of suppression would themselves suppress the freedom of expression that white males have encouraged for so long. In recent years, white people in general and white men in particular have been targets of directed malice from pressure groups who demand that they change their very nature from a dominant group to one subservient to everybody else. We are the last group in the world that is actively encouraged by society to hate itself and that self- hatred runs deep https://www.bostonglobe.com/opinion/2017/07/02/defense-white-male/Me9UoUrcPbcljxRkPFlXAP/story.html, https://thedailycoin.org/2019/02/20/self-hating-whites-2/, http://www.westernspring.co.uk/the-mental-disorder-of-white-self-hatred/. The role that the white male is used to playing, that of the explorer, the defender of Western Values, the provider and the protector, has been taken from him and he is told that ” it’s his own fault” https://www.louderwithcrowder.com/14315-2/. It’s that evil patriarchy again! Here is a video I want you to watch and I want you to see it without hating yourself for your reaction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90XLNQXN_74. It’s funny. The natural reaction is to laugh. Of course, once we do that, once we do that, then it is implied that we are culpable for every racist act that has been performed by every racist white on the planet since the first hunter- gatherer looked askance at the first Middle Eastern settler around seven millenia ago https://www.huffingtonpost.com/wendi-aarons/theres-nothing-funny-about-your-racist-joke_b_7656212.html. Here are some more suicide statistics: https://afsp.org/about-suicide/suicide-statistics/, https://www.bcmj.org/articles/silent-epidemic-male-suicide. It seems that the only demographic who should apologize for daring to exist is that of the young to middle aged white male. Why is that? In this world of multiculturalism, is there no longer any room for what used to be the largest and most productive demographic? Why can’t we laugh? Why are we singled out for daring to react in a way that would seem totally natural if anybody else were to do it? One could, of course, answer that our unique history gives us all a collective culpability in our reactions. That is a coldly analytic view of a spontaneous laugh at something intended to be a joke. Maybe we can be allowed to chuckle without writing a thesis justifying our reaction to the rest of the world? If we are going to have any kind of productive dialogue with people who are conditioned from birth to hate us simply because we exist, then we need to face the fact that we’re struggling with a poison of self- hatred that has been insistently and consistently inflicted on us. If we so easily hate ourselves, how much more easily, do you think, it will be for us to hate others? If our own humanity is debased in our own eyes, how much easier would it be to project that debasement onto others? I think this might be a good opening point of a serious conversation. All is not lost, of course. We can educate ourselves and each other, not only about a past that we can be ashamed of, but also one that we can take pride in. We can also learn from the mistakes of the past and actively seek to avoid such mistakes in the future. We can also develop those lessons and improve ourselves as we learn more about who we are and how we relate to the general human family.
Another hour lost, Spring getting closer, but it still feels like Winter. We will start keeping track of these disasters as they are costing us dearly. Still transitioning a little bit. ‘Jekyll Island’ will be up in its entirety. We’ll also add some new real-life crime stories, relative dramas of the day, stock talk, and, a solid, strong effort to keep up on the Watches and headlines and Journal. Getting there….,getting there….Have A Good Weekend.
Whoever whups it up the best for one minute, we’ll let them continue, or let loose the lions.
Last day of Black History Month. This is using the medium to promote the politics of division. It’s plain and simple. It’s always worth noting to me because we would be so well past this point if not for the promoters of race. Yes, promoting in the schools, the churches, the communities and on and on. And on and on. Using Hollyweird as a race promoter in the television shows, commercials, news and movies. Now tokenism has a different meaning between black folks and myself. Tokenism, to me, means that people of color are being put in numerous situations that put them in the public’s attention. But, these people are hand chosen by the demons and put in white peoples’ face to piss them off every time they hear about how racist they are. For black people, they see a solitary black person, or maybe two, and say, “oh, one black person, that’s tokenism.” That’s a double insult to white people because it was the NAACP and other black organizations that created the law that says they must be shown in all literature, brochures, shows, etc., or the facilitators can be sued. Then! They join in with the black folks calling it tokenism! Outrageous. Yes, Sigh-o-friggin’-nara to Black History Month. Instead, learn about how many race-based institutions there are in this country, ones that serve only their interests. The very definition of racism. This bad, bad, sinister, evil, maniacal lies must be exposed at every turn. They are EVIL, and the people in the fold belong to Satan. So, bye February, and watch soon for an article on the incredible hypocrisy of Frederick Douglass.
Quick and simple thoughts: Gambling – Savor that one win. Two losses, back out. It seems more often that you can’t take a few days without blowing off a few appts. Colton’s as close to a virgin as I am to a Triathlete. The meeting of the family is a dumb aspect of that type of show. Cohen and Mueller are distractions and not newsworthy one iota. People who don’t believe in man-made climate change should pay my insurance premiums. If I see an ad without music, I’ll buy two. That’s all for now. It’s only Tuesday. Be good . Don’t get blown away.
On this day, something happened, but who cares? Trump in Korea, Cohen in Washington, Whoopi in New York, Who cares? What we care about is the blog, helping you make informed decisions, keeping up on the media, and getting things in order. Some older stuff will be coming down so the whole Jekyll Island book can be put in place. You can listen to it without thinking about it and you’ll still be mad by the end of the book. You bin had. So whatcha gonna do? New Yorker, and WSJ updated, market updated during the day. More goodies coming. Thank you.
February 13, 2019 Another great post by Monique LaBarr on the environment and healthy living. We all need that this year. Think healthy! Think smart. Another great one by Andrew Gooding. Why so great? Andrew has undertaken an analysis of the book ‘The 5000 year Leap.’ Are our Republican politicians acting like Republicans? Are our Democrat politicians acting like Democrats? I’d say more like Stalinist Russia. They flipped their friggin’ minds. The new party is the Constitutional Party and I am a Constitutionalist. That’s a new word, add it to your dictionary. We have to go back to the core document, the very core. The perfect document. Then we must start to review each and every amendment, law, ambiguity and department because there have been traitors all along the way. That’s why there was such a need to get rid of Andrew Jackson. The American Revolution is not over. What could not be taken by force has been taken by stealth. We have, at this moment, almost completely capitulated to the enemy. Hence, to be a Constitutionalist is to know the war isn’t over. What was it the British wanted here? It was a tax, it was exclusivity to the Empire, and it was a Central Bank. How could two countries that fought 2 wars with one another be such good buds not very long after? Think about it. The face of the threat looks nicer, but it is even a worse threat now. It’s close to game over. Be a Constitutionalist.
This Principle, written by W. Cleon Skousen in his The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle that Changed the World ( pp. 217- 221) explores how the English people gradually came upon the realization that entrusting one’s rights to tradition was insufficient, especially in the wake of the Norman Conquest and in the rise of the notion of the Divine Right of Kings ( Skousen, W. Cleon. ” The 5000 Year Leap,” pp. 217-18). The Anglo- Norman nobility, of course, was the first group to directly demand certain protections and concessions from their King John, in 1215. Under some certain duress, King John signed into law the Magna Carta and ” in that same century, the ‘ Model Parliament’ came into being, which compelled the King to acknowledge the principle of no taxation withut representation” ( p.218). In truth, these were some very important concessions that the later Colonial Americans built on as they took it into their heads to make sure that their rights were detailed and guaranteed in writing, beginning with the Mayflower Compact, written and ratified in 1620 and continuing on through the Fundamental Orders of Connecticut in 1639 ( p.218). The Mayflower Compact was a conventional British document that acknowledged their reigning King James I as their proper Sovereign, but then went to declare that they would form their own political body, pass their own laws and work for the betterment of their colony and the ” advancement of the Christian faith” ( http://mayflowerhistory.com/mayflower-compact). It was an acknowledgement that these people were in a new place and they would fashion their own laws as their circumstances dictated. Their primary interest was centered around their own colony and not the government in Westminster. The Fundamental Orders of Connecticut, written in 1639 ” had none of the conventional references to a ‘ dread Sovereign,’ or a ‘ gracious King,’ nor the slightest allusion to the British or any other government outside of Connecticut itself… The government of the United States today is in lineal descent more nearly related to that of Connecticut than to that of any of the other thirteen colonies” ( p. 219). This was actually the first written constitution that established an independent government and from which the freedoms we enjoy as Americans today were derived ( p. 219). When we as Americans tried to follow the British example of reliance on tradition and some loosely- connected written legal codes to establish our own rights, the British not only dismissed us, but their parliament ( and King) regarded our protests as treason and they acted accordingly. Our Founders were doubtlessly advancing their own self- interests, but that finally translated into a code, a Bill of Rights that was amended to our Constitution in 1791 that applies to all citizens, regardless of social status ( https://billofrightsinstitute.org/founding-documents/bill-of-rights/). Time and experience teaches us that the rights we enjoy as American citizens today are best safeguarded by a written guarantee and are best expressed as a result of the labors of many cooperating people rather than the expression of a single author ( pp. 220- 21). Our written guarantee is our Constitution, which provides for checks and balances, separation of powers and outlines what the rights and duties are for our branches of government as well as what our rights and liberties are as individual Americans ( https://usconstitution.net/const.html). There are some people today who enjoy these liberties just as much as everybody else, but they believe that the Constitution should be a ” Living Constitution” that should be altered to suit their own agendas, which are usually to curtail individual rights and to expand the rights of the State. The weaknesses of this approach is more thoroughly explored here: https://www.law.uchicago.edu/news/living-constitution. We are at our best when we live by the laws that our forefathers set up in writing without trying to brush off 243 years of the collective wisdom and precedents that have resulted in the creation of the freest society on Planet Earth and by God’s grace, we will certainly remain so without unnecessary interference by those who want to undermine the American way of life.
When it comes to food, there is not doubt that what we eat affects us in a major way. The diet we choose to consume affects our health, our vitality, and even the way we look..
we celebrate Martin Luther King. Why haven’t things gotten better?
Answer: Because all it did was create more and more racial
“special interests” which can only stay in business by making you believe racism is alive and well, and, unfortunately, they receive lots of help there by the wealthy and political elites.
