Fascinating Piece from Pravda

The teaser got my attention.  It was “PRAVDA: Obama re-elected by illiterate society.”  Everyone has their opinion about the demographics of the election and this is certainly one of them.  The author’s name is Xavier Lerma.  Pravda published his essay, but I chose to link Obama’s Soviet Mistake to Mr. Lerma’s Blog.  I love the picture there of Hussein and Soros.  I do not believe those big grins mean well for any of us.

There are numerous points in the opinion piece ripe for further argument and discussion.  He says that he speaks American English and Russian.  He lives in Moscow.  His perspective is as a conservative Christian.  I want to find out more about this man.

What do you think about the article?

 

 

I Find It All Very Taxing

“The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation.” — Vladimir Lenin

I have decided that I must have a “lens” to properly examine the politics and culture of our times. I am very fond of my distant cousin Thomas Jefferson and all of Our Founding Fathers. That would seem to be the obvious choice of those who are passionate patriots and supporters of our Nation, our Constitution and our foundational Judeo-Christian beliefs. “Lens” considered and cast aside. It would be difficult and quite the stretch to use the writers of our Founding documents to understand those who would shred the Constitution, create economic chaos, and trample the religious rights of the citizens of this nation.

Then there was my epiphany of the day. Today I was researching in order to verify if the quote ““..socialized medicine is the keystone to the arch of the socialist state” was actually made by Vladimir Lenin. There was the “lens” right in front of my very eyes. When I find the current news of politics and culture disturbing, I will seek enlightenment through a selected quote of Vladimir Lenin, Karl Marx, or both.  I shall begin my post with a “lens” of Vladimir Lenin or Karl Marx.  That will allow us to clearly focus on what is going on in front of our eyes.

Considering the Lenin quote above realize that some try to define bourgeoisie as strictly being the “middle class.”  Vladimir Lenin saw two classes in society the bourgeoisie (those who have property) and the proletariat (those who have no property). Let me clarify that the preceding was my simplification for the sake of argument.  Lenin’s view of Russia limited the proletariat to those who labored in factories. Perhaps those definitions are a little rough around the edges given today’s circumstances. Government assistance can provide all with property without the indignity of actually working in a factory or joining the labor force in any capacity.

Karl Marx additionally categorized the lumpenproletariat as those workers marginally employed, or, unemployed, beggars, criminals, or paupers.  Food stamps are a carte blanche entry document for this class in today’s America. The real growth class in America today is the lumpenproletariat.

Lenin’s quote as a “lens” offers a clearer view and understanding of what this article is all about, Examiner Editorial: If top 5% paid 40% of taxes, what is their ‘fair’ share?  America beware of going after the pseudo-intellectual progressive liberal mindless twits’ favorite straw man, “the people who make over $250,000 a year.”  You will begin to understand the invisible tie that binds our American middle class to that straw man when that tie pulls you into the millstone right behind them.  Poverty is so much easier to manage for evil means than citizens with financial resources.

Would it be possible to look to Karl Marx for hope and comfort as ironic as that may sound?

History repeats itself, first as tragedy, second as farce. — Karl Marx

America did you fail to take notice of the tragedy of tens of millions consumed by communism and its multitude of failures in the Twentieth Century?  I pray not.  It will be a blessing indeed, if it is only a farce that we are facing politically today.  It will be an additional blessing if the farce does not turn lethal on us.

 

He’s B-a-a-a-c-k

On or after November 16, 2011 , something awful happened. Late one night I very foolishly did some site maintenance while I was very sleepy. The outcome was I destroyed totally two of my websites and severely damaged a third. My best advice is to not do site maintenance when you should be in bed.

I now have two of the three websites restored and hope to have the final one, The Really Big Tree, up with in the week. I am a real glutton for punishment so last week I registered a fourth website. I am keeping it under wraps for now.

I have to go watch Texas A&M now, but I am really looking forward to getting back with my blog.

Fire Bob Beckel! Fire Bob Beckel!

I was visiting the Christian Coalition website to sign the Pray and Vote Pledge, Very simply here is the pledge.

Simply put, we ask that you pledge to:

  1. Pray about the coming elections
  2. Vote on Election Day
  3. Help educate others by receiving and distributing voter guides!

 The voting guides have been infamous for years. Voting guides are nothing more than a truthful report of the voting records of sitting politicians.  The problem is that truth shining on politicians is like sun shining on vampires.

While at the site I followed a news link to this story “Donald Trump is right:  Fox News Should Fire Bob Beckel.”

Bob Beckel clearly has gone way over quota for profanity laced comments.  While his loose tongue would clearly be sufficient to can a conservative it is insufficient to dismiss a liberal.  It is a known fact that liberal’s goals are noble, their hearts pure and their hands in constant motion doing their good deeds.  That will earn a pass every time.  Conservatives on the other hand have a dark heart, kick puppies and don’t believe there are free lunches.  They deserve to be fired,

I won’t be jumping on the “Fire Bob” bandwagon.  It is very difficult to “like” Bob he is such an irritating progressive liberal mindless twit.  I can’t understand anyone so blindly political that they refuse to see the truth and reality of certain situations and drone on ignoring truth and reality.

What if Fox News fired Bob Beckel and replaced him with the prig’s prig Alan Coombs?  What a disaster that would be for the viewership.  Coombs is the polar opposite of the lively and entertaining Beckel.  Plus Beckel has serious real world experience in politics.  Sometimes his observations are like the burning bush speaking.  Beckel listeners have to be adept at separating the wheat from the chaff and not stepping in that stuff on the stable floor.

The reality of “The Five” is that it may end up as a time filler destined to fade.  While its charmingly chaotic format is very entertaining plugging it in to Glenn Beck’s old slot is like trying to plug a basketball hoop with a tennis ball.  I do not believe it will last.  Fox News will still have the even more charmingly chaotic “Redeye” with the brilliant Greg Gutfield.

I hope to continue to see Bob Beckel on the Fox News Channel.

Critical Labor Shortage

The President, Barack Hussein Obama, has totally sucked the wind out of the critical village idiot job market. All the traditional sources of village idiots such as Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Boston and others have struggled to keep up with the exponentially increasing demand from Washington, D.C.

People think that village idiots just fall out of the skies but that is not in the least true. Behind every successful village idiot there is an American institution of higher ignorance that has invested the time, trouble, and money necessary to turn out the world class level village idiots that politicians have come to expect in our National government. Our American institutions of higher ignorance are totally stressed because of the current demand. Even with support from institutions of higher ignorance in non-traditional village idiot areas, like T.U. (Texas University) they have not been able to keep up with demand.

Several possible solutions to the problem come to mind. Increase our investment in keeping America stupid by tripling funding to American institutions of higher ignorance specifically to educate village idiots. We could also replace an estimated 10-20% of lower level village idiots with functional imbeciles. This would free up the more talented village idiots to engage in important government work like destroying American agriculture or keeping American drillers out of the way of Red Chinese drilling in the Gulf of Mexico. Obviously the immediate appointment of a czar for village idiots should be a priority until this problem gets back under control.

I long for the days when my political worries were focused on pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracist mindless twits. The huge infusion of village idiots has really skewed the ability of cranky people to comment on politics. It is almost impossible to properly comment when you are rolling on the floor laughing while reading marvelous prose like “Living Within Our Means and Investing in the Future” (are they really serious?). It was one artful village idiot who came up with that deceptive title. The government living within its means indeed. Investing? Government? Like that’s going to turn out alright. American retirees would be broke and broke down if we “invested” like the Washington, D.C. “geniuses.”

There is a much easier way out of the dark halls of this epic dilemma that will be obvious to all whose dreams of government service have been shattered by a superior intellect. Vote Barack Hussein Obama out of office in 2012. This should have the village idiots scattering like street hookers when a police car approaches.

Praise the Lord and Turn on Thursday Night Football

Let us count our blessings. God, in his infinite wisdom has richly blessed his people and blessed our nation.

Tonight we have the NFL opener to take the sting off of what would otherwise be a stingingly depressing evening of platitudes and accusations. Thank you, lord.

He gave us President Hussein to make us realize that things could indeed be worse. Praise God.

We have been blessed with a political system that has Presidential elections every four years. Here’s your chance America. If you voted for hope and change and to prove you were not a racist be sure to vote in 2012. I hope you change from voting for President Hussein and prove you have not totally lost your senses. Praise the Lord.

Urgent Problem in New York City

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg needs to do something about the urgent problem of controlling guns in New York City.  There were a total of 42 gun fire victims in two days in the city.  One fatality, four people wounded at a barbecue shootout, another three at a parade during a long, long weekend. 

Bloonberg needs to do something about getting guns off the street so honest citizens stop shooting each other and only criminals have guns.  That way everybody will be safe.

By contrast here in the Great State of Texas(San Antonio specifically)  most of us hayseeds are armed and the criminals as well.  We had a gunshot fatality in a bar over the holiday.  Some honest citizen did not notice the state mandated sign that it was against the law to carry firearms where alcohol was served.  I think they need to get bigger signs with larger letters.

A plus was that there were no barbecue related injuries or fatalities over the holiday.  There were, however, the three dummies armed with a shotgun and a pistol who actually thought they were going to walk into Achmed’s store and take his money.  Achmed came out of the back with his own gun to save his clerk.  The thug behind the counter got locked in holding the bag.  The other two drove away.  I think that criminals don’t keep up with the local news.  Achmed had his gun out all four previous failed robbery attempts.

The criminals had two guns and the good guy only one.  I like the way things are in Texas where a freeman can defend his own life and property.  Much safer than New York City.  If there were a cop on every corner in New York City they still could not save you from the random thug with a gun.

Liberals’ View of Darwin Unable to Evolve

by Ann Coulter

Amid the hoots at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry for saying there were “gaps” in the theory of evolution, the strongest evidence for Darwinism presented by these soi-disant rationalists was a 9-year-old boy quoted in The New York Times.

After his mother had pushed him in front of Perry on the campaign trail and made him ask if Perry believed in evolution, the trained seal beamed at his Wicked Witch of the West mother, saying, “Evolution, I think, is correct!”

That’s the most extended discussion of Darwin’s theory to appear in the mainstream media in a quarter-century. More people know the precepts of kabala than know the basic elements of Darwinism.

There’s a reason the Darwin cult prefers catcalls to argument, even with a 9-year-old at the helm of their debate team.
