In fear for ourselves

In fear of ourselves

“We made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves”.

For those of us recognizing the sinner in the mirror, this is a daunting task. It requires honesty, integrity and the recognition of truth in what we see and know. Looking into a soul is far and away more important than simply proclaiming the existence of one.

We need to occasionally take stock of what and who we are. Are you really the champions of the oppressed looking to better the lot of the common men and women you ask us to send to Congress? Or, are you opportunistic egotists looking to tighten your grasp on the reins of government will force the commoners to appreciate just how wonderful you are for sacrificing nothing personal?

It’s difficult to see yourselves as others see you. You want to believe your motives are pure and totally altruistic. You think you want to be of service. You want to be seen as noble and just in your decisions and efforts at representing the needs, wants and desires of those you say you seek to represent.

But, when a person is chosen to represent where does the whole apple cart begin flipping over? When does the whole kettle of fish start to spoil? What the hell happens to justice, representation and service of the common man?

In the words of Deep Throat, the man who exposed the rotten core/corps of the Nixon Scandal: “Follow the money”. The money is what starts politicians toward public service. Money spent shows power. Money available shows power in reserve. And money fertilizes careers to meant to garner more power.

Any governmental house, no matter how grand in its appearance, may be the residence of superintendence or it can be a home for rats and cockroaches. As the number of representatives and senators grow, competition increases because there’s only so much power to go around. The Highlander, a television show of some time back said it best: “There can be only one!” And the competition for that Number 1 position is fierce.

Those with enough reality left in their worlds recognize there can be a power behind the throne. That’s when the competition begins again. We see it daily as Congressional Representatives and Senators compete for Committee Chairmanships. They campaign within the ranks to see who’ll Whip the ranks into alignment and others work like madmen sacrificing their souls and integrity to be known as Senate Majority Leader or Speaker of the House.

Shakespeare said in King Henry the Fourth: “uneasy lies the head that wears the crown”. For this fact the effort at representation of the people morphs to the point of transition to partisan party politics claiming to represent factions of the populace. It’s done not for the representation of the people back home thinking alike with their representatives, but because when you factionalize you diminish the number of people you’re responsible to so as to maintain your position. It has nothing to do with what the people back home think or want. It’s how you maintain your position in the party hierarchy and ensure the party’s support when you next campaign for office. Party loyalty leads to accessing party coffers and a favorable distribution of funds for your campaign.

It’s at this point we see the pride of the lion devolve into the dishonor of the jackal. Instead of watching over the people in his pride the lion has become a pack hunter living off of the corpses of their constituents’ hopes. Their hunger for control of not only government but also the governed is despicable. These people become a race apart, a race demanding the control, authority and containment of liberties and freedoms enjoyed and guaranteed under the Constitution and Bill of Rights. They want to assure their “greater knowledge of what’s going on in Washington” remains in their control because Washington is seen as the seat of government. It may be where the butt-heads congregate but the strength, power and ability to rise in defense of our liberties resides where the people sit in judgment. That would be at home; amongst the people who expect so much more than what they’re getting.

Our representatives from the President on downward should be making a searching and fearless moral inventory of themselves and see where they are not only going wrong but doing wrong as well.

They’re employees, not prison wardens.

God is…

God is…

Sarge

“We made a decision to turn our will and lives over to the care of God as we knew him”.

People believe because they have intellect and a repository of knowledge in the books written over the ages makes them omnipotent. They think themselves smart when really, they only have intelligence. Intelligence is the ability to gather information and store it, possibly to use it to change things in their world; possibly not. But do they have “Smarts”?
“Smarts” is a colloquial term meaning they have the ability to take what’s been learned and possibly profited from and apply it to their lives to better it and the lives of those around them. It’s at this state we must come to wonder about those describing themselves as: atheists, agnostics and humanists.

Atheism involves a person having NO belief in a God or higher power. His world is a flat plain with no hope of afterlife, divine intervention or final affirmative judgment given for actions taken or not taken. Life is merely a matter of momentary existence either continuing under the control of the actor or having an affect by the inaction of that same person. It is a belief in spiritual nothingness.
Agnosticism is when a person has no real knowledge or simply doesn’t have the necessary empirical data sufficient to prove the existence of a God. In his world there is no surety of the existence of any deity. There’s no certainty that theism (the existence of a higher power) is anymore logical than the stance taken by the atheist.

Then there’s the humanist. This is a person believing science and logic as developed by seeking information that’s quantifiable and measurable are the only way to explain the unexplainable. We come to understand the manner in which we reproduce and create life to continue our race, so we think we can continually replicate the process without problems. Now with the fact we’ve mapped the human genome we believe there’s incontrovertible truth that we’ll be able to control birth defects, diabetes, heart disease etc., etc., ad nauseum, ad infinitum.

Humanism is the belief man will and can develop moral judgments and ethical actions based on his personal theories developed from debate and his personal understanding of the consequences of action/inaction and the responsibility the human must take for those actions or inactions. The belief is there should be no reliance on a religion or God. Science and philosophy are the two main parts of any ethical definition to be sought out and continually adapted in order to find the truth in any situation. No religious ideology or dogma is acceptable in the pursuit of this truth. Faith is an unacceptable option and thus is rejected outright.

Humanism started in the 1850s. It was a theoretical exercise in academic ethics and challenging debates concerning the ability of man in society being able to conduct himself ethically and morally without the guidance of any religious instruction or dogmatic immersion. But everything debated was developed over the thousands of years of belief echoed through history. The terminology placed in question was developed by societies developing customs and traditions to be followed and emulated through the ages.

Where the development of Humanism started in the 1850s, religious dogma and the definition and divination of pantheons defined and delineated the moral compasses of people around the world, HAVING faith and belief in unseen forces directed the actions of man. Across the globe people banded together in families, clans, societies with like belief systems. They developed into nations and states having deified the unknown forces and developed traditions, customs and beliefs from generation to generation. The word of mouth transmission of stories, legends and ethos for all to understand were thought necessary for survival from the influences of the unknown. The ethos is the fundamental spirit of any culture. It’s the foundational sentiment informing the members of the society of the particular beliefs and customs of the society and the predominant assumptions of a hierarchy in the order of things; especially the mystery of nature and the world.

What is being pursued here is an understanding this new format of thinking, where man seeks ascendency over his Gods and Goddesses, is an intellectual rebellion driven by philosophical egotists thinking they alone know everything that’s right, wrong and in-between based solely on their extended educations and immersion in philosophy. Man has never been known for his humility until driven to his knees by adversity he must ultimately admit has pummeled him to that posture. The old adage: “there are no atheists in foxholes” is true. I know from experience. Even though I trained and worked to be the best at the specific crafts and expertise necessary to do my job; I called upon every deity I knew of in Native American Culture and the basis of my religious instruction as a Roman Catholic when placed in harm’s way.

Man is a delicate animal. He’s not the strongest, the heaviest or the fastest of the animals. While he suffers all of the travails of weather and the elements as any other of the animal kingdom because he can think and reason and fear, he has a psychology needs attendance and patronage. His emotions must be balmed so as to assuage his fears and give him hope. This is where he exceeds the rest of the animal kingdom: he can reason.
When he places an overly heavy emphasis on his personal strengths and comes to doubt that strength when put to a physical test endangering his survival, he must have something to fall back on. That would be faith. And faith is something you place your trust in when you have nothing else. Faith is what you call on when your belief in yourself flags and you must continue onward with nothing else in your arsenal.

We must make a decision to turn our will and lives over to the care of God as we know him where it concerns the conduct of government and the controls of those who would govern us. Our placement of our faith in men and women betraying our trust and faith regularly leads us back to the premise we must redirect that faith and trust in a higher power we expect better of.

Throughout our history Man has looked to the unknown for guidance. We’ve looked for omens to direct our course. We’ve sought guidance through supplication of our ancestors, our superstitions and our deities. It’s only when we admit our frailty, our weakness of moral direction and definition as shaky pillars of our societies that we learn of our subservience to powers greater than we.

In our politics today we need to turn away from the Secularization of government and turn back to our knowledge of our true higher powers. After all, nature can destroy anything and everything man can build over a sufficient period of time. Nothing made by men is permanent.

God is.

Come to believe…

Come to believe…
By
Sarge

“We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity”.

America is a great land. It’s a nation of individuals come together to shape a future for each by bonding and banding together to create a place of personal and individual liberty. It was designed, after great debate and with the idea a nation must be held to principles of equality and exceptionality. This allowed for the people to discuss and modify the path their government would follow for the benefit of the nation as a whole and with the government the servant of the people; not the other way around as in a monarchy. The individual citizen was the director of his destiny by holding the reins firmly in check on his government.

Man at that time was ruled by his knowledge of ethics and morality from what he was taught during his religious instruction. The American landscape was inhabited by colonists leaving the security of the past to gain the freedoms of their future. The Pilgrims, a Puritan faction believing in the simplicity of their religious rite and the humility of the individual in his supplication of his God sought the right to worship without interference and command of the king. Their rites and prayers were different in manifestation but still bore their foundational precepts in the Old and New Testaments of the Judeo-Christian canons.

Ten Commandments were the basis of human interaction deemed acceptable and righteous in any community. Differences between that which is right and that which is wrong came to be understood because of the simple logic of such maxims as: “do unto others as you would have done unto you” and “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”. These statements were accepted as COMMANDMENTS; not the “ten really kinda sorta good ideas”. It was accepted as the word of an unknown, unfathomably powerful entity responsible for the creation of the universe and all within it. People weren’t so cavalier as to believe they could cause the sun to NOT rise or set nor could they hope to travel through the air as the birds did.

People’s egos weren’t so inflated as they are now.

Now we have airplanes taking us aloft and into “the heavens” so we can see the tops of clouds. Now we have vessels allow us to sail BENEATH the seas and we try to speak with the denizens of the deep with echolocation and arcane vocalizations we don’t understand but hope they will. We’ve accepted the certainty of some scientific endeavors as being the certainty of ALL scientific endeavors. Now man’s ego is so inflated as to believe because he can understand the “how” of a process, he can replicate the process with continuing and certain results with the wave of his god-like hand.
We’ve travelled to the Moon and back and still can’t say with certainty why the Moon is there in the first place. We’ve walked on its surface but only proven to date we’re trespassers on a frontier we’re only novices at the exploration of it. We’re not benefactors in this endeavor; we’re polluters. We know how to gauge and quantify our sense of the passage of time but we do that based only on the points of reference we have that we admit are only an infinitesimally small element of the overall Universe. We don’t even know where the center of that Universe is. But, we believe we know all there is to know and may command all there is to be done in that Universe.

That’s pathetically egomaniacal isn’t it; to believe because we’re at the top of our earthly food-chain that we’re the top of ALL food-chains to be suspected and waiting to be realized?

Man has always contended with his need to appear and be accepted as God-like. This effort at rising to the heights of Olympian equality has seasoned our understanding of this majestic control of our personal destinies without the interference of any greater power. Because we can replicate ourselves by creating life through our mating rituals and we may take life away through killing our brothers, we see ourselves as equal in power to God. After all: “God giveth and God taketh away”.

But where man has created much can be wondered at, he can’t make the weather change on command. He’ can’t stop molten lava from burning away all in its path to move forward until the ash left behind fertilizes growth of new plant life to be risen from that ash. What man can destroy he may rebuild upon but he covers the natural with a mass of unnatural construct.

What man creates if finite, It has a beginning and an end it can’t deny. He can’t stop it from happening. He can’t prevent the natural result of his actions. And, it’s in that fact he proves he is NOT God. He is fallible and as such he is not omnipotent.

I don’t claim to have too many answers. But one thing I do know: with the continual blather man puts forth about “The Big Bang Theory” we can never answer the one question makes all the theories proffered impotent for their lack of an answer: Who, or what, lit the fuze?

Until you can answer that one, and prove your answer, look back to the first sentence. “We came to believe that a power greater than ourselves could restore us to sanity”. To believe anything else is surely insane to some of us.

Einstein said: “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is insanity”. So is the idea of putting your faith in politicians, mere men and women like us, to have anything but their best interests in mind as they leave your control to “represent” you in faraway places like Washington D.C.

The First Step

The First Step
By
Sarge

“The first step in liquidating a people is to erase its memory. Destroy its books, its culture, its history. Then have somebody write new books, manufacture a new culture, invent a new history. Before long the nation will begin to forget what it is and what it was. The world around it will forget even faster.

– – Milan Kundera (The Hayride 6-26-2015)

Well; the Supreme Court has issued some specific and overwhelmingly Progressive judgments between 6-25 and 6-26-2015. Obamacare doesn’t have to follow the “letter of the law” and Same-Sex marriage is allowable and enforceable in all 50 states. This seems less a matter of the will of the people than a pair of statements saying the State and the Government has NO responsibility to listen to the people and/or follow the mandates of those people.

They have the power. The majority of people have no say in the execution of that power. The loudest, meanest, most strident proclamations of organizers putting forth more and more disaffected people seeking only their viewpoint’s enforcement overwhelms the thoughts and wishes of those either too tired or TOO LAZY to stand and fight for what they believe in. We’re losing the exceptionality of being American because the very rights we say belong to all are being used to expunge the rights of others.

This whole nation is Dysfunctional. Dysfunctional is defined as: 1.not performing normally, as an organ or structure of the body; malfunctioning. 2.having a malfunctioning part or element:3. behaving or acting outside social norms

The people have no relationship with government. The government has taken the time over the years and shown a level of patience heretofore unrecognized as it whittles away at the foundation of American values and traditions. Over the past couple of days the government, led by a feckless Marxist subverting a Progressive Supreme Court and herding a compliant and self-serving Congress toward the brink of Socialist/Communist took-over.
Look at the quote above. It tells the way and manner in which a nation falls and dies. The quote pulls no punches.

Obama has discredited America on numerous occasions as being NOT exceptional. He has derided us for our stances, some for good and some proven bad, as being without consequence other than he recognizes America as derisive, divisive and destructive. To this and him I say: SCREW YOU, YOU LOUSY BASTARD!

Your mother was a Communist raised by Marxists. You’ve been educated to the highest levels and been allowed the highest office in this land because of the largesse, generosity and charity of this nation and all it has to offer. And still your egotistical self-demands we kneel before the intellectual prognostications and divination we must all drop to the lowest common denominator so you can stand above us.
The first step in stopping your rotten self is for the American people to admit the following:

We admitted we were powerless over our government- that our lives have become unmanageable.

Our lives are becoming unmanageable because the government wants to manage any and all elements of it from how you eat, sleep and breathe, to who you may or may not associate with and accept as equals. Government has taken the course of defining YOUR personal values and demanding, by law, that you comply with the proper governmental point of view. To not do so will see you being excoriated, berated, denounced and rebuked as being racist, bigoted and discriminatory when they are the ones being racist, bigoted and discriminatory against you because they don’t like the way you feel; because they can’t have their way without controversy.

America has become the land of the of those who need to flee and the home of the of the politically correct and opportunistic but morally bereft knave. With activist courts seeking to displace the will of ALL of the people we see the future as being directed by the United Nations and other petulant and retarded authority believing the world should be governed by the loudest and most active minority simply because everybody wants the governors to shut-up, slip back into the shadows and quit disturbing the personal peace.

The price of this political correctness anchored to the loose and shifting sands on which it’s built will look like it’ll survive but the façade must fall when the foundation is undermined by the many and latest theory comes along to threaten the existence of each individual brick holding the next one in restraint.

We need to admit we’re powerless over our government- that our lives have become unmanageable and for that we are in danger.

We need to turn back to God.

The nature of the beast

The nature of the beast
By
Sarge

Hillary Clinton has done something in a near replicant fashion mimicking Obama. She’s started censoring the press as boldly as Goebbles ever did. She isn’t burning books or physically creating her personal version of Kristallnacht. But, she is holding the press so far distant “at arms’ length” would be a microscopic distance in comparison to how she’s trying to hide in plain sight.

David Martosko is a political reporter for The Daily Mail, a United Kingdom newspaper considered one of the premier news outlets in the world. I use it as a source for topics such as this. Martosko was barred/banned/excluded from three Hillary Clinton campaign events. Martosko was barred from covering Clinton events in Rochester and Concord, NH as well as the tired and disturbingly under-attended effort on Roosevelt Island in Manhattan
Hillary and her press team have gotten Hillary’s panties in a twist because the Daily Mail isn’t the slavish, slovenly news pup CBS, NBC, ABC, The New York Times and others have proven to be while covering the Obama Administration. These organizations have all but inundated the paper waste lands of the liberal desert with the gushing praise for Hillary. Their failure to cover her obvious missteps, blunders and evasions concerning everything from Benghazi to the questions concerning her selling her influence through her association with the Clinton Foundation is obvious. ”The Daily Mail” doesn’t play nice and they have a nasty sense of truth and justice politicians don’t always appreciate.

To say the “Mail” (as it’s known) is a dogged pursuant of truth, justice and actuality in political reportage, is an understatement. In England, where a Prime Minister’s administration and government can be toppled by the antics another Clinton once conducted, “The Mail” has been a Tesla Coil of journalistic reportage. The voltage showered on the corrupt is always impressive, illuminating and in the vast majority of cases, hair-raising for the subject being exposed.

Hillary and her micro-minded, integrity challenged minions can choose to answer questions from the media she chooses to recognize, but to outright ban and tell a correspondent “(you) need to leave” because you don’t like the print stamped on a sheet of news print is not only unkind, improper and unacceptable but as Martosko said when interviewed, “the Clinton campaign doesn’t get to choose who covers them.”

As Daniel Patrick Moynihan said: ”You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.” Those facts are to be discovered and presented by a free/unconstrained/unrestrained press putting the facts before the people so they may decide for themselves what’s best for them.
But we live in a real world where “truth, justice and the American way” have been subverted by a press corps more interested in becoming the power behind the throne than reporting the rulers sitting on (and the prospective successor) are not only unclothed in their personal duplicity and lack of personal integrity but are covered with festering pustules; and the throne is termite ridden and unsound to carry the weight it must. America‘s become a place where the lies, duplicity, double-dealing done and told by two-faced hacks can cheat and lie their way to the highest political position in the land and arguably in the world (before Obama).

Martosko said, “I find that unacceptable and offensive.” So do we. It’s unacceptable, rude, insulting and destructive of the trust an informed citizenry must have with its governing bodies and individuals. That citizenry expects to be given the truth and then decide how their nation shall proceed on the world stage.

Obama and Hillary have proven they can and will subvert the power of the press to inform the world. They’ve by subverted and co-opted the media making them willing members of an arcane and dangerous cabal looking to control our perceptions and thus our direction of where this nation and world should be heading. If Obama and now Hillary Clinton can subvert and censor subvert the press and remove its righteous power to honestly educate; how can we trust her to give ANY power to the people?

What’s your thinking about de facto slavery masquerading as democracy?

Depends on your point of view

Depends on your point of view
By
Sarge

It seems there’s no really hard and fast definition of race anymore. We’ve finally hit the great frontier of equality where a white person can identify as any race they see fit as long as there’s a buck to be made (as in counterfeited) or an issue that can be obviated by lying and posturing as something you aren’t.

In the effort to gain big salaried bucks, some broad named Rachel Dolezal has masqueraded as a Black person while being the Spokane, Washington NAACP President. It seems a lot of deep tanning solution and some serious overexposure to a tanning bed are all that’s necessary to be a leader of the formerly greatest civil rights organization in America. I say formerly because the NAACP has been led down a not so primrose path by Ben Justice, Dolezal and many others. It’s now more a race baiting harpy ridden organization than the placid representative edifice of Lady Liberty seeking justice for all.

This NAACP scandal, traced and not drawn from the heavily forged efforts of the ethically challenged, Elizabeth Warren to misrepresent herself as a Native American Cherokee, is being ignored by the mainstream media for the most part. Warren used her lie to gain admission to University under Equal Opportunity standards and gained access to jobs, accolades and reputation building resume’ stanzas never really deserved. Warren gained elevation in academic, societal and political circles. This proves lying is a really necessary part of a politician’s” bag o’ tricks”.

Both Warren and Dolezal are trying to be something they aren’t: political powerhouses motivated from a position of integrity and honesty. Neither seems to possess either of these attributes. But, when you get to thinking about the matter, what politician does possess them?

Dolezal has “identified” as black. What if Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who posed as a Native American, continued to “identify” as Native American? Does that give them the right to make a living off of a lie? Does it give a person the right to benefit from social programs others died to acquire and that the charlatan has never earned by virtue of the discrimination others suffered? Fraud is a crime punishable by imprisonment. What quality held by these two liars keeps them from being tried before the bar of justice?

I must admit it all confuses me.

A Twit calling himself Godfrey Elfwick posted his thoughts saying he was born to white parents but believed he was black.
Cool. That sounds like Dolezal’s claim. Dolezal was outed by her Caucasian parents. Her mom ought to know best because she surely was the only one there at the actual time of conception, other than the father, and as I believe the mother is an honest person, it would seem her husband is the father. But, DNA could be the clincher.

But; back to little Godfrey. He identifies as (according to his Twitter post reported on The “Mirror” published in the United Kingdom) a: “genderqueer Muslim atheist’, and he wrote on Twitter:
“My name is Godfrey. I am #WrongSkin.” He continues.
“You may not have heard of that but it means I was born to white parents and have white skin but I identify as being black.
“It’s not a joke.
“It’s not OK to mock us.
“It’s not easy to live like this.
“Our struggle is your struggle.”

Whether this is a parody as some suggest or a statement issued by an actual person with a series of aberrational disorders capable of filling a DSM V, (the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition) there is a growing propensity for nutcases to escape the Jimmy Carter Warehouse. That’s my silly way of saying liberalism has lost its way. The crazies are now running the asylum.

So where do we go from here. If Bruce Jenner can get his manhood clipped, turned inside out and had injections to create boobs on a boob; must we accept people as what they say they are as opposed to what we see they are.

Little Godfrey says 10 per cent of people were born in the wrong skin. He has no published basis for this statistical statement but what the heck: the guy looks white but says he’s black. Go figure.

So; as Twitter user @LuckySeven30 wrote: “If we are accepting of people switching genders we should also be accepting of people switching races.” This leads us to the dilemma of what is truth, how do we determine fact over fiction and where the hell are we headed as humans?

If a male can be in actuality female and is expected to be accepted as such; can a seemingly Caucasian person actually be black because he emotionally identifies with black people?

I guess it’s possible because of the irony of Barack Obama saying he’s a good president and as such closer to being a Jew than any prior president. It all Depends on your point of view and we know what Depends protect us from.

Enemies foreign and domestic

Enemies foreign and domestic
by
Sarge

I awoke this morning to the sure and present knowledge I’ve been letting you down the last few weeks. I’ve not been publishing because of my efforts to complete a home remodel to a level where I can move into the house and slowly finish the work on my own.
The walls have been removed and the floor torn up and replaced. The floorplan is optimal in the sense of being more open, airy and pleasant to inhabit because you can see throughout the kitchen, dining room and general areas making for a more well-lit and spacious feel to the room. It’s not so claustrophobic. It’s not so shadowed and concealing. You can’t hide.

But you surely can live comfortably and openly. And that’s what home is all about; living well and comfortably by your standards.
We live in America. It was built on the sweat of our ancestors’ brows and the strength of their backs bowed to their labors and belief in the benefits of hard work, clean hearts and minds directed toward a higher power to guide them in their efforts. They had the strength and power of morals developed from a Judeo-Christian ethic and traditions. They knew their place in the cosmos and didn’t challenge it.
Now it seems little of this ethic continues onward.

We have a generation of malcontented, shiftless, poorly directed sycophants living off of the scraps thrown them by a government seeking to keep itself in power with the acts of throwing loaves and building circuses to entertain and distract the people. The government is a parasite beholden to these sycophants as long as they can remain elected. The government caters to the lazy and the malcontented so as to assure the same playbook is used game after game after game. The results are those shown to be similar in all cases: the same people lose time after time.
Those people would be us.

America has lost its drive for excellence it seems. The symbiotic relationship between a people and their rulers has always existed. Symbiosis is where organisms live in an interdependent relationship like a Shark and a Remora, the hitchhiker eating microorganisms from the skin of the shark. The shark is cleaned and the remora is fed. It’s appeared to be beneficial until the point where one seeks to use the other more greedily.
American government has overloaded the symbiotic relationship with its greed. Government, though appearing benign and controlled, is actual a tumor swiftly becoming metastatic, spreading like a disease interfering with the health and welfare of the host.

Government has put regulations and procedures in place to control business, society and individuals so as to assure CONTROL is maintained for the government under the guise of democratic theory. It’s ironic that the definition of DEMOCRATIC is: the whole body of eligible citizens remain the sovereign power but political power is exercised indirectly through elected representatives; this is called a representative democracy.
Take a look at what’s going on around you in America, your state and local government. Does that look like democracy? Does it appear you’re being represented by those people in Washington? Does it not seem ironic that the primary progenitors of this MISREPRESENTATION carry the name of the Democrat Party? Is a snake not best camouflaged to be unseen right out in the open through the use of its power to blend in and not be obvious?
Now we find it doesn’t matter whether you claim to be Democrat or Republican; you’re a politician and that means self-aggrandizement is the driving element of your career. We have NO term limits. We have no controls over a government extant in a locale far away and we rarely see our representatives until they want something of us. We can’t freely go to where a government representative lives and make him feel the heat of our discontent. They write laws to absolve themselves from controls by WE THE PEOPLE.

So what’s this got to do with my house? Nothing, other than I live there and I control what goes on there. I control the look, the feel and the continuity of my lifestyle and life. I stand ready to defend it and myself from all enemies foreign and domestic.

When will you say the same and behave the same way where it concerns your country?

False piety

False piety
By
Sarge

Each day the sun rises. Each day hope escapes to be chased and sought after as a balm for the inequities we suffer from those we trusted and no longer accept as just and honest.

These people we call politicians. I had an elected official tell me once he was proud to be a politician. “Politicians help people” he said. So far he’s one of the few that helps people. But in helping people he’s come to the point of codependency. He’s come to the point he needs the good will of the people he cajoles and bribes with his political largesse and refusal to allow people the necessary awareness that people must be accountable for their actions.

Due to this; people DO NOT hold politicians accountable for their actions and possibly duplicitous misdeeds. Quid pro quo is the term. It’s Latin for: where one transfer is contingent upon the other. We use the term to mean “a favor for a favor” and other phrases include: “give and take”, “tit for tat”, and “you scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours.” (Wikipedia 2015)

Our system of political corruption started long ago. It’s rooted in the greed and avarice of one to assure he has been paid well will expect more for what he’s done for the individual. It goes back to neoliths asking a greater “cut” for the food delivered for the tribe on a successful hunt. It selections of leaders percentages were balanced and brought to the circle to assure the privileges of leadership accumulated the benefits for service and production. Those who give expect to have more given them.

A legislator gets funding to improve roads in his area and he can claim he’s the only one could have gotten it done. He expects to be sent back to the legislature over and over again because he’s so good at what he does. The fact of the matter is the money’s there and any idiot can get his constituents’ share of it. You just have to win elections. So, you go out and promise more and more and do whatever it takes to get the next vote.
Get a person out of a speeding ticket? No problem. See to it the ditches are dug in one area donating more campaign funds than another more impoverished area and see who gets the work done first. Campaign and posture for social causes simply because they have more active campaign workers in specially selected ethnic areas? Reap the benefits of ethnic bloc voting and you see where this all goes.

Integrity and veracity mean nothing. Ethnic blocs once noted for their religious communalism and strength of character have come to sell out to the highest bidders where social welfare and the financing of profligate lifestyles are supported on the taxpayers’ dime. Keep me supported through my many dalliances and the birth of fatherless children and see how well I support you at election time.

We accept the psycho-babble that it’s only right and charitable to support those who make mistakes.

I think it’s more important we teach these people to correct their mistaken notion the world owes them something. Sure; give the “hand-up”. But, too often that” hand-up” becomes the “hand-out” crippling the person needs to be held accountable and taught their way has no true profit to it. But we remember; “give the man a fish and he eats for a day, teach the man to fish and he can feed himself for a lifetime”. But we don’t enforce that.
We bait the hook. We drop the line in the water and then sit waiting for the man to appreciate us for our doing the work, earning the reward and then giving it away so we can sanctimoniously self-righteously congratulate ourselves at how generous and caring we are when we’re really enslaving these people because they never learn how to survive without taking from others to get what they want.

They’re never happy with what they need: they want what you’ve got and they’ll destroy this nation to get it if you don’t get off of your dead butt and stop them.

Charity comes from the goodness of a clean heart; not the back pocket of a people trying to buy their way to heaven with false piety.

From Colony to herd

From Colony to herd
By
Sarge

America started as a blank page; a chance to organize our thoughts and come to some kind of understanding about life, the world and where our nation would go. Now it has thoughts etched into it. It’s had bird droppings thrown down upon it by a Colony of gulls. The page was pure, now it’s soiled to the point of horrible contempt because of a thoughtlessness borne of the need to do what comes naturally and is destructive. It’s a natural act of destruction because of its lack of thought. We can only wait to either wipe it away or see it thrown out with the other trash.

I describe the Obama administration: a thoughtless gull dropping a mess on the people could easily stop the assault by erecting a cover to keep the albatross soon to be hung ‘round our necks for all time from desecrating all we thought clean and light and right. But the participants in this party of the absurd don’t want to stop the revelry applauding the fact we elected a man of another race, no matter the exact divisional percentage of his birthright. Did you know a person, for socially based genealogical purposes, is of the same race as its mother? As silly as this may sound and in spite of his complexion, Barack Obama is Caucasian by virtue of this series of hypothetical thought processes. His policies are as duplicitous, sanctimonious and misguided as could ever be expected of a third rate, lying socialist wanting to see the masses arise and destroy the proletariat from within. He’s the self-righteous contagion polluting the body national and demotes humanity to herd status.

Speaking of hypothetical thought processes, it would seem this is in alignment with the idea he’s a president merely because he lied to the American people better than John McCain and Mitt Romney. Neither of these stiff and stolid individuals is noted for great oratorical skill. Both are wrapped in plain brown craft paper while Obama came to us with Rainbow Coalitions and Red Flags flying so we’d know the Big Top is coming and we were witnessing the Coming in of the Clown. Obama was elected by a majority of the minority exercised their responsibility to vote. He was selected by the least qualified to be the worst of three evils.

This is a short thought today because I feel as though we’ve said it all. We’ve exhibited the displeasure and the revulsion a national body can when being whipped into alignment within the confines of the herd’s biomass. We’re alive. We’re moving. But nobody wants to understand this herd’s path is directed to slaughter; of ideals, beliefs and understandings of what it means to be American. We’re being herded by ideologues and the sycophants pressing their steeds against our flanks and cracking the whips scare us into moving the way our drovers demand.

It’s time to move away from the rest of this mindless herd and be the men and women we must be s our nation can return to what it once was: a nation of men and women claiming free will and self-direction as given them by their God and Savior.

I’m tired and worn. But I’m angry and torn by the facts I’ve alluded to above. It’s time to see if we will accept the scars as markers of how we’ve been mistreated these past few years or arise and unhorse the unfeeling, uncaring wannabee Vaqueros driving us to our moral deaths and before they may scar us again. It’s up to us to choose.

It’s new and it’s broken already

It’s new and it’s broken already
By
Sarge

New toys are always a thrill for a while. Then the incline rate of the learning curve decides just how much fun the bloody thing will continue to be.

Tablet computers are an example of which I speak. New features connected to new models and new applications requiring interpretation and practice keep things interesting.

But you know me. There isn’t too much doesn’t draw me back to politics as I move along with this divergent and possibly divisive thought process I follow. So he it goes.

We have a new political balance in the Senate and House of Representatives. It’s alleged to be a Conservative proposition. It’s alleged to be more responsive to the will of the people. It’s supposed to harken back to a time when the people had a voice and it a was listened to by their representatives.

To this I can only say bullspit!

According to Speaker of the House John Boehner, there are insufficient support in Congress to override any agreement with Iran brokered by Obama. SAY WHAT!

The House is majority Republican. The Senate is majority Republican. And this moron (and his equally ignorant counterpart in the Senate, Mitch McConnell) can’t scare up a majority of votes to challenge a man they declare regularly is taking liberties unto himself as president. Just how stupid and ineffectual are these two dolts?

This deal with Iran has been exposed as a lie by the Iranians. They say the American people are not being told the truth by Obama and his flathead funky John Kerry. The Iranians say they’re not giving up anything concerning their nuclear developments. And the American people are supposed to simply accept any and all things dribbled from the lips of a known liar and charlatan.
We’ve heard varying estimates from a few weeks to a few months to years before Iran is capable of producing nuclear weapons. Nobody but the fool on the hill and the desert devils know for sure how far away we are from nuclear war. And our chosen representatives say they have no way to end this guy in and follow the commands of the American people.

Why in holy heaven are they elected and then reelected if all they can do I tell us what they can’t do? Why have we populated the herd with steers as opposed to men and women capable of strengthening the legislative gene pool with the vibrancy of American ideals and historical patriotism based on American exceptionalism? The fact is Americans have grown lazy. They consistently swallow the bitter pill of Progressivism and all that it represents because it’s easier to accept what’s force-fed them in the media and on TV.

Mediocrity, insolvency of morals incapacitating our will and inconstancy of advancement based on our higher values and sense of justice and knowledge of what FREEDOM truly means are what’s causing our diminishing stature in the world.

It’s disturbing to note that we regularly accept the lesser of many evils simply because they have the most money to buy the elections.
I’ve harped on this before but the big question remains: when are we going to learn? Must we suffer the worst indignities of war foisted upon us by people assured they’ll never suffer the pains we will because they somehow believe they’re above it all? At what level of society does a person become immune to the travails of homicidal dogma? At what level of society does a person slide past the theory and belief that sending as many self-defined “infidels” to the afterlife will assure they get their version of Paradise while all others are condemned to the lowest levels of Hell Dante Alighieri could have imagined?

How do we get the representation of people live on this planet, in this time and having an awareness of the evils men can execute against others because it’s their way or the hell-bent highway?

I don’t know. But, you can bet that jack-legged, hemp addled knucklehead in the White House has proven he isn’t the one to do it.
