For the last several weeks, about a month or so is it, the American viewing public has been forced to listen to a lot of whining from females who say they were “assaulted” sexually by a Hollywood A-Lister or other high profile personality.

First of all, these allegations are years, literally years, old before anyone hears about them. Secondly, the media reports them as if they were actually true and most of us will believe them. These so called sexual assaulters(Do  they mean rape here? The media and “victims” are just a little vague about this point) are assumed to be guilty by the media on the incontrovertible evidence of being accused. The broadcast media has lost ALL and I do mean ALL credibility. They have now fallen as low as they can go. Their opinions do not matter to most of us and as they have long since given up reporting any facts at all they are now officially past their use by date.

It is hardly worth saying, but I will anyway, that if a female does not feel “assaulted” enough to report an incident at the time of occurrence we need not disturb ourselves if she suddenly sees some political or financial advantage to reporting it several years after the fact. I notice we are not being inundated with accusations of groping against janitors, fast food workers, or the men who manage the city’s plumbing and sewage systems. There is not a lot of press coverage, money, or glamour to be had out of these guys so maybe that’s why? I would also like to know why these poor “victims” didn’t slap the guys face if he was being an ass. It works wonders when applied properly..

The worst of it is that sexual assault, rape, is a filthy, violent and totally reasonless crime and this obviously false, specious, and publicity mongering slop is a cruel mockery of genuine victims. These women are false accusers, making themselves holy at no cost to themselves and at extreme cost to the men they accuse with out foundation. The media is falsely accusing these men as well for the sake of a juicy high profile scandal which we all know makes a great story. And since any slattern can come forward ten years after the fact and create this kind of a mess about any man in the public eye, the possibilities for future stories are just about limitless. No one except Matt Damon has had the guts to say something about this travesty. He has my fullest support. That took real courage. The kind of moral courage these female “victims” did not show and the media has never had.

The women feel holy for “speaking out”. Airheads everywhere feel holy for approving. The media is giving themselves all kinds of holy airs for “reporting” this “news.” Not a real fact in sight. Doesn’t cost any of them a damn thing, this holiness.  Cheap at the price eh?

America is supposed to be the land of opportunity, right? Anyone willing to work and use the talents that God gave them should be able to prosper honestly. So why have I been hearing so much blather about the “rich” being penalized for having done just that? Why so much spite about their share of taxes? Why such focus on trying to shoot down their lifestyle with legislation targeting just them? Is this spite one of the reasons that President Trump is being dissed by the liberal media? Because he has earned money?

Does anyone honestly think Mr. and Ms. Average person is going to be able to get ahead themselves if we allow this to continue? It is seriously time to rethink the practice of allowing this to go uncorrected in the public arena. It is time to get rid of death duties. It is time to repeal legislation that penalizes parents who leave viable assets to their children. It is way past time to repeal the income tax, state and federal. We can find less intrusive ways to fund things necessary to the public weal.

There is nothing wrong with inherited wealth people. Just think how much easier your life would be if mom and dad left you the family home so that you would not have to slave most of your life to pay off a mortgage(or a car, or a student loan, or thousands of credit card debt). Think about your own children. Don’t you care that their lives are being burdened with so much life long debt because it has been made legislatively impossible to provide for them as well as you can? Do you want to be the generation known for giving your children a stone instead of bread?

America will not get back on track financially until we address these issues. Let’s get back to the mindset of allowing prosperity honestly come by, through personal effort, even if it is a generation removed, to earn it’s rightful place again. It is supposed to be the American Way.

This is a short post in praise of the men of my tribe. The hardworking Caucasian men responsible for the founding of these United States of America. I am just personally tired of hearing them slandered by political cheap shot artists. Caucasian men have set the standard for personal and national liberty that all of us, of whatever gender and ethnic background we may be, do currently enjoy in this great and bountiful land we call home. Their blood has gone into the life of this country. Their thought, standards, and sheer courage and persistence in battle have offered hope to the huddled masses yearning to breathe free. The sacrifice of the women who loved and supported them has gone into it’s heart. The respect of their sons and the love of their daughters has enabled this courage to be passed down through the generations that have continued to hold this nation up in times of trial and cultural slander.

These men respected their women — their wives, mothers, daughters, aunts, even cousins and worked to support them so that they would not have to deal with the roughness and often sexually offensive atmosphere of a man’s world. They did this because they were decent men, and kind, and had some tenderness of heart where their women were concerned. They were not chauvinistic. They were loving fathers, husbands and brothers.  They had a very good reason for wanting their wives and daughters to stay home.

When it comes to the extent of sexual pressures experienced growing up there is no such thing as equality. Young men get the hormonal crap beaten out of them while young women basically cruise and snooze in comparison. Men need their outlets of speech and humor to bear the load of sexual pressure with which they are afflicted from puberty, which is why they didn’t want females in their so-called male only occupations and why they did not encourage co-education at the university level.  They had no wish to be offensive and back in the day, men were very careful about how they spoke and acted around the ladies in social situations. With the onset of Women’s Liberation in the sixties, an astonishingly small group of females with serious gender issues of their own made enough public noise to over ride the protests of these men and look at the result.

We are missing our men, here in the land of the free. But more precisely still, we are missing our fathers. The decent fathers who do not just stand by with their mouths shut while political and educational pimps of both genders soil the emotional health of our children for the sake of their own vanity and the cheapest sort of political grandstanding.

Men need to be respected, because they are men. Their sexual and emotional needs are not to be made a subject of public derision or censure, neither are they to be considered any kind of crime. Their ability to lead with courage and honor is not ever going to be replaced by feminism.

Sexual modesty is, essentially, a masculine virtue. Think about this for thirty seconds or so and you will see that this is true. With the subverting of gentlemen in our society and all that term signifies, we are left with the flesh – flashing whorish climate of today. Our young people are not flourishing in it.

The last word? I am proud of my guys. They have a long history of beating tyranny in whatever form it takes, Feminism is one such and we will beat that too. Because although our men have been put on the front lines of this gender war by the emotionally unstable, our history of helping each other when times get tough will see us through. There is nothing wrong here that cannot be solved quite readily with cooperation  between genuinely considerate adult men and women,  whatever ethnic origin they may be.

How about a little grace here, people.

We have a problem.

There are a number of ways a given population group can be conquered.

1.) Military force. Your antagonist sends large groups of armed soldiers, planes, tanks, and bombs against the land you live in until the population is either decimated to the point of surrender or there isn’t anyone left alive to fight back. The antagonists then move in and attempt to live in the land they have overcome. You all understand this tactic. The United States of America has so far, defeated several such attacks. Now let’s look at tactic #2.

2.) Subversion. This is accomplished by sending operatives to live and work among the target population to collect intelligence about vital industries and supplies, their locations and movements, and sabotage the same, or, infiltrate as an employee. These enemy operatives are also trained to cause as much social and civil disruption as possible, leaving the target group in a more vulnerable position regarding it’s physical defenses. Subversive tactics are heavily used to cause confusion and fighting among the target group which will disrupt or even destroy morale—a key element in a country’s will to win. This is not a tactic that the average American pays much attention to or rather, they do not call subversion by it’s proper name.

3.) Money. This is really an extension of subversive tactics. That enemy who lacks military strength and has to rely on subversion will also target the financial infrastructure of a population group. Many a nation has simply been bled white then bought out and destroyed rather than overrun by hostile soldiery. The average American does keep an eye on the money but how many of you understand it’s subversive uses?

Subversive tactics are always used by an opponent who lacks the military force to conquer in the field.

The subversive operative is not hard to spot even for untrained civilians. They do not hold with the local customs, standards of behavior and/or morality, or the accepted religion(s). They feel their “culture” is superior to the targeted population and are not shy about saying so. An excellent example of this would be the “Christianization” of the western world by “missionaries.” They were and are subversives of a textbook variety. Before Christianity, all religions were tolerated. After it gained a foothold, people who did not accept it were killed and their financial assets absorbed by the church. Islam is of the same stamp. Anyone who does not accept it is an “infidel” unworthy of consideration. Both Christianity and Islam have an accepted policy of killing “heretics.” This lack of tolerance is unacceptable to decent people, whatever their religious beliefs.

We now have a major subversive effort underway in America to use “Tolerance” to destroy us. This particular enemy has built it’s “tolerance” propaganda platform very cleverly on what we all acknowledge to be bad mistakes in our cultural past so the average American will be hesitant to speak out.  We are not dealing with amateurs here. This group has used cries for tolerance to infiltrate our military, our courts of law, our legislative bodies and our churches. They are currently controlling most of our media, print and broadcast, they have wormed their way into the entertainment and telecommunications industries. They are on many bank’s board of directors. Their annual incomes are significantly higher than anyone else’s average income. They are even targeting the Boy Scouts of America. The problem is typical of subversive tactics. It’s not that there are so many of them, it’s that they have been sneaking into key positions and using those to sell their own agenda.

You all know what group this is. What you may not be focusing on is the military component. This howling about “tolerance” is not a social issue we need to rectify to promote peace on earth. It is a subversive, military tactic designed to cripple and pollute a population that cannot be overcome with tanks and bombs.

Our government intelligence agencies know this and they are fighting it. They have been fighting it for years. Or did you really think all that bad press in the 70’s about the FBI and the CIA misuse and abuse of power blah, blah, blah, was real? Did anyone really think the war in Vietnam was unnecessary? This particular group has been controlling our media for at least 45 years. Now go back and rethink those stories disparaging the American military, the intelligence units, and the war in general.  Certain countries in Southeast Asia had the premier child sex industries in the entire world at that time and those industries were worth multiple millions. This particular group had a vested interest in not having their vacation spot disturbed. This is the same group that has fought an extradition treaty with Thailand from within the U. S. Congress.

We have a problem. I am posting this to encourage the rest of you who think we are going to lose this fight. We are not. You can do your part, and a really major part it is, when you do not automatically buy into the media stories about the corruption and abuse supposedly prevalent in our military and intelligence people. Heck people, you even need to give the cops a break here. Remember who is editing the stories and who is deciding just what the American public will read or listen to. All of you can see this for yourselves. The surprise will come when we uncover just where this particular group is coming from.

For now let’s just say—they aren’t from around here.

You may not think so at first glance but this is a natural segue from my last post—…The Time for All Good Men… We need a little historical background first.

At the start of the Women’s Suffrage movement, about a hundred and fifty years ago, the adult male in Western Society became “The Villain” and he remained in that role with increasing emphasis as the years went on. It is time now to rectify this public perception. It is entirely erroneous. If our men were as black as they were painted by the suffragettes, women would not have been given the vote. But they were. Our men did not have to do this and with the twenty-twenty vision of hindsight, we would be much better off today, both financially and socially, if they had not, but, they decided to err on the side of generosity, a habit with our men.

It is always very easy to find fault with the movers and shakers, especially if you don’t have the responsibility of getting things done yourself. This is exactly what happened with the Suffrage Movement. These women were loudly vocal about all the things that the evil, greedy, violent men were doing wrong in society, and if only they had the vote things would change they could tell you! Well, they were right about that anyway, things have certainly changed in America—for the worse.

The society built by our great-great-great grandparents was not perfect of course, but it was stable. Our several times great-grandfathers did not encourage their wives and daughters to want to vote or get out in the work force because these men knew what their women would have to deal with, and they knew their women were not up to the job. Besides which it was dangerous. Physically, sexually dangerous for them to go about unchapperoned. The women of that era had been sheltered for thousands of generations from such physical dangers by the vigilance of their men and were very prone to poo-poo the mere idea of it in the course of any discussion.

I will take a moment here to let the Emancipated Ladies and Liberals who may happen to read this blog finish shrieking. (Pause)

You see, away back then, these ladies were accustomed to being the social arbiters in the churches, drawing rooms, social clubs and cottage kitchens. In these venues the woman’s word was law. The men knew they were not best suited to the managing of social situations, the more tender sex was better at these interpersonal relationships and they were given all the indulgence their fathers, husbands and brothers could manage. In a word, these suffragettes were spoiled, not by one man but by a whole society of them who valued women for their tenderness and grace. And these very spoiled women really thought their drawing room manners were going to be enough to intimidate the evil, greedy, violent men of this world into better behavior. After all, it worked on their husbands, children, and social set of friends didn’t it?

And here you have the kink, the rub, the stone in the shoe of Women’s Suffrage and Liberation ideals. Drawing room manners are not adequate equipment in a man’s world. Our Suffrage grandmothers never had to deal with the realities of a man’s world and their liberated granddaughters are still not dealing with it. They still base their political solutions on the idea that you just have to explain to predators that their behavior is “inappropriate” and the matter will resolve itself. Any other route would involve violence and they are much too righteous to approve of violence. It offends their tender sensibilities. Men are violent and they are essentially better than that.

Absurd when put in it’s proper context isn’t it? It matters not what kind of predator you are dealing with—financial, sexual, or military, a predator is a person or group that sees something you have and has decided to take it—by force. The sexual and military predators use physical force, the financial use political force which is, intimidation by paperwork. That particular generation of very sheltered women were given the vote and opened the door to the financial and sexual predators that have been multiplying in our country ever since.  And by insisting on open homosexuality in our military, today’s very sheltered ladies are actively inviting military predators as well. Those ladies had no idea, really, of what voting caused or prevented (and their granddaughters don’t either.)  Their husbands and fathers knew they did not. Yet, out of a sense of familial fairness and indulgence those men allowed Suffrage—to the sorrow of succeeding generations.

Predators are kept at bay by a show of physical force and that is the only thing that keeps them at bay. Women do not have even half the physical force  of men and for this reason alone predators do not fear them. That being the case, females in important public offices do not provide any deterrent value on the social level where predators grow. All this petticoat posturing called “equality” and “political correctness” and “gender sensitivity training” is the feminine idea of force in controlling a world where predators lurk by a display of drawing room manners.

It is time for our men to step up to the plate. I know I am not the only female in America who has faith in them. It’s a bit late to repeal Women’s Suffrage but you guys can start having some real time discussions with your wives and daughters. I know this is very difficult for you when you love them and would much rather not see them understand the world of predators the way you instinctively do. Just tell them enough so that they can appreciate how much you do for them, just by being the husband and dad. You have been sheltering us for countless generations by your willingness to fight off our enemies. It is time now for you to remind American women just why they have as much personal independence as they currently enjoy. I will back you to the hilt. Semper Fi.

During the Revolutionary War, one of our founding fathers made this much quoted remark–“Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country.”

We can really use our good men today.  Because we are in the worst fight America has ever faced. We are being eaten alive from within in the name of freedom and rights. I keep asking myself– ‘who are these people and where did they come from?’ Where did they get the notion that making movies about sex with children and animals is a freedom our fore fathers died for and our mothers sacrificed their husbands and sons to? Where did they get the notion that freedom of speech includes public profanity and self-centered whining about what their employers and the  government “owe” them just because they say so? Pornography  is available 24/7 now on all the cable and satellite networks and sexual predators of women and children are increasing. Why is this so?

It’s because we are missing our men. Our mature adult men who are husbands, fathers, and brothers and who still retain a sense of what they need to do to protect their families, their wives and their daughters and their sons. In the last hundred years of political babble about women’s rights we have not been blessed with thinking females to head up such a cause and we are reaping the results of this today. Susan B. Anthony did not deliver many addresses on the subject of sexual predators that I know of.

During the first years of women’s suffrage much ado was made about woman’s right to vote and hold jobs in the professions. The EVIL MEN were “oppressing” the females of this nation by not encouraging their daughters to go out in the work force and be independent. Wives and daughters of respectable families were expected to occupy themselves at home and in their local communities. The man of the family worked to provide for them. Usually the father or husband but often this fell on the brother or even the uncle if the father or husband died and did not leave some sort of income for his dependents. And there was an expectation that he would do just that if at all possible. That is why savings accounts and life insurance were invented. It was so that the tender ones in the family did not have to expose themselves to the very real dangers and ugliness that awaited them in the real world. How dreadful! How limiting! How unfair, and unprogressive! And how very wise. Yes, I said wise.

You see, the men of that era, just like the men of this era, knew that there are predators among us and that their wives and daughters and their very young sons have no defense against them.

There are financial predators that offer loan shark type deals and easy credit to the young. Sexual predators and criminals of every sort choose their intended victims by estimating how much trouble there will be in case of attack. Unattended females and small children are an invitation that they are not slow in accepting. Our men seem to have this knowledge hardwired into their psyches. Probably from the thousands of years as the designated protector of the tribe/clan. Women not so much and children of course, not at all. So in publicizing all this liberation for females, our society has in effect, posted an open season notice on all the tender members of our society. We have totally emasculated the angry father/husband/brother deterrent value of our men. And believe me, that deterrent is not to be sneered at. Predators do not focus on an adult male with a self-confident air if there is any other choice on offer and our society has given them a smorgasbord of choices by casting our men in the role of supreme social villain.

Our men are not villains. They are our fathers and husbands and brothers and we need to show the decent, caring ones more respect on every level–especially in public. Let’s ’empower’ them again, for all our sakes.

Now strikes me as a really good time to provide readers with some historical perspective about our national financial situation.

The current financial policies pursued by voters in the western world have their beginnings in the Industrial Revolution of the 1700’s.

The factory and mine owners of those days were making enormous profits off of the sweat shop conditions of their workers and paying them in pennies. The immediate result of those policies was a virulent, unfocused hatred of all business people and a resentment of anyone who had acquired personal wealth regardless of the individuals own behavior.  These feelings of resentment led to the formation of unions, not a bad thing, child labor laws, a very good thing, and the introduction of the income tax system — a very, very bad thing for everyone.

In a word, the general voting public is running about three centuries behind in its political awareness and the entire western world in general is suffering the ill effects. The cures are simple.

1.)We need to abolish both the state and federal income tax systems. We need to start phasing them out right now. The income tax was based on spite, the less monied classes cut off their own noses by it and it opens the door for all sorts of bureaucratic intimidation, interference and mismanagement. We can find other ways to fund the really necessary functions of government for a free nation. I will develop my views about the income tax in-depth in a future post. It covers a lot of ground, idea wise.

2.)We need to vastly reduce or eliminate the capital gains tax. We cannot have a prosperous economy if we penalize prosperity. This tax was also based on the spite of the have-nots.

3.) We need to eliminate all death duties and estate taxes. Same as above.

4.) We need to abolish the Social Security/Medicare system and we need to start phasing it out right now. It was a very bad idea and it is time we all admitted this. Let individuals save for their own retirement and manage their own funds instead. Let’s focus on why health care is so expensive and fix that instead.

Our governments are so intrusive these days and our economy is in ruins because our great grandparents voted in all the necessary ingredients for this to happen. They did this because of their class resentment against “rich” people. Well, our great grandparents generation are all dead now and we, their grand children, are having to live with the results of their political spite. Personally, I am against this.

We all feel that our government is too obtrusive in our lives and businesses and this interference is bad socially and financially. We can cure this mess and the first step will be to call a spade a spade. Those well-intentioned folks who are picketing Wall street today would be better served if they cleaned up their own back yards first otherwise they will only compound an already bad situation. The growing disparity between the incomes has been caused chiefly by legislation introduced by the lower incomes themselves and they are the ones who will have to cure it. I will elaborate on this theme more fully in my next post—

The War Against The Poor—Causes.

P.S. It is my contention that most American voters are not stupid or corrupt. They are, however, inclined to react only to surface stimuli and totally overlook underlying causes. This is where I come in. When you read my blog here, remember I point this stuff out so that we can change things for the better, and not simply to find fault. So keep up the good work everyone. I sense changes for the better on the way.

I am going to make just one point in this particular post because it is so major, I want you to just ponder on its implications.

Poverty is not an inalienable, unescapable, incurable condition of life on this planet. It is an entirely artificially created condition, created by a very few select men and women who find themselves in a position to do so.  People are poor because these very few, who are making multiple millions and even billions of dollars of personal profit from various necessary businesses do not pay their employees a generous wage out of these obscene profits. They could well afford to do so.

That’s all.

This is going to be one of the most complicated posts I have tried so far and I am beginning it in fear and trepidation. The war against the rich is quite simple and very easy to track. The war against the poor is much more subtle and complex, and I wanted this blog to be easy to read and understand for beginners in the field of political analysis. So please bear with me here. I will be connecting the dots. It is unlikely that I will be able to present my basic thoughts on this subject in just one post. It may even take two or three. Jesus Christ is quoted as saying— “the poor we have always with us.” I don’t think this is necessarily a given in our society so you see I am going to disagree with Jesus. Setting out my reasons will take some space.

How shall we define “poor?”  Rich and poor are such relative terms, dependent upon many differing factors such as cultural expectations(this is a big one), cultural standards, (these vary from place to place), exposure to comparison groups, public focus on select issues, etc.. Perhaps best stated by a quote of some antiquity which is… “I thought I was poor because I had no shoes until I met a man who had no feet.”

Here in America lately, we have had much public wailing about “The Poor” in capital letters, without any sort of definition as to what exactly defines “poor” to these people. The same goes for legislative rhetoric about “The Rich.” I will condense the howlings of the past fifty years or so into a workable definition for the purposes of this blog. We will start at the top, most public layer and work our way down. I will be giving some tried and true methods of self-defense also because people who get to feeling poor can use some encouragement.  I don’t mean to just yak about this war, I mean to offer some weapons that can be used against the aggressors.

We may take the idea of poverty as those people who feel themselves divorced from or shut out of, direct legislative authority. We may also take the idea of “rich” to encompass those the public feels are in control of this process. Most people feel disempowered and helpless to make the  changes necessary to regain some control over their finances and their lives, ergo, they feel poor. Voters all over this country fall under this heading regardless of their income.

Congress is running wild, ignoring the wishes of the electorate and following an agenda not approved by the people for the benefit of a select group which Congress is pleased to call “the poor” but which most Americans know really means “the rich” per the definitions I just gave. Right now, when  these few instigators on Capitol Hill say “poor” what they really mean is “those without health insurance.” Your first weapon will be to publicly refute this special interest definition.

A select few in Washington D. C., led by Obama, a group of women, and a few token males are attempting to ram socialized medicine down the throats of Americans using “The Poor” as an emotional catch-all phrase. They do not address any basic issues such as asking hard questions as to why health care became so overpriced in the first place. We hear nothing about the huge overpricing practises of the big drug companies. We hear nothing about the overpricing of medical equipment. We hear nothing about lowering the cost of health care itself by addressing the enormous price affixed to malpractice insurance that no doctor will practise without today or the judicial rulings and settlements that drove it up to begin with. These are the underlying issues involved but this Obama fronted women’s group has been very careful to direct public focus away from and not towards them. Americans know this but most have lost sight of the underpinning behind this insurance scam now before us in the name of healthcare, and this creates the feeling of disfranchisement that we all are reacting to.

This feeling of malaise has been created very deliberately, a fact which almost all Americans know at some level.  This is what drives most of our resentment against “the rich.” Our first line of defense in the War Against the Poor, and it will be very effective if implemented, is to refocus our attention on the items I have italicized above and to refuse to allow the professional politicians to sidetrack us with the emotionally based redirection tactics at which they all excel. Those of you who are not doing so now, need to turn a deaf ear to the specious, alligator tears tactics of these few women and their token males when they start in about ”  X—-   NUMBERS OF AMERICANS HAVE NO HEALTH INSURANCE!”  Sob, Sob, Sob. These bleeding hearts do not care about “the poor” and do not seek to benefit them.  The only people they seek to benefit from health insurance are the big insurance companies. Here in New England we have our own definition of SOB’s. Think of this when these sob sisters turn on the public tears.

Sick people need medicine and/or medical attention, not insurance. Healthy people don’t even need that. In this particular campaign in the War Against the Poor, the big insurance companies and their lobbyists/politicians have brought out their very biggest guns–lack of hindsight/foresight by the average voter, public misdirection of needed focus areas, fear, and financial insecurity. And they have done all this, not to improve our health, but to guarantee an investable capital base for their own profit. These tactics are very cheap but very, very effective in manipulating the public. What we need to do is insist that legislatures focus on the causes of inflated medical related pricing in every related healthcare field, and not quibble about more insurance that will only continue to inflate this wholly unnecessary gravy train.

A certain group of power investors artificially drove up the price of our healthcare to begin with, also deliberately, and they did that about 20 to 25 years ago. Remember, you are dealing with international corporations and they think twenty to fifty years ahead in their major game plans. Average people don’t generally do so and that leaves them at a huge disadvantage, which the big multinationals take full advantage of. Here is another self-defense weapon for the poor–when a given issue appears in the public arena, there is always an historical, political, legislative or financial background to it, going back several years. Look for the history if you want to fight effectively. The information you need will be available in the public records if you bother to hunt for it, and you will begin to feel much more empowered and much less like David against Goliath.

I have given here just a few examples of the weapons used by certain groups and individuals against the people in the war against the poor along with some very effective counter measures. In my next post, I will try to enlarge on some of the topics presented.

Next post—-The War Against The Poor…continued.

In my last post I gave a little background on the principles on which this great country of ours was founded. It was not founded on political rhetoric, religious rhetoric, or even financial rhetoric. It was founded on sound, for-profit business principles and was originally colonized by people who understood these principles. This is how the colonies became strong enough to throw off the rule of Great Britain and is the only reason the revolutionary war was fought. Our war for independence was not fought for ideological reasons of any kind. It was fought over money and taxation. The colonists wanted the taxation practises of the mother country to be fair, and moderate enough to allow all the people being taxed to sustain a prosperous lifestyle. We now have a movement in conservative politics called the Tea Party, after the original patriot version of the same name. It is fighting for the same causes that our founding fathers did–money and taxation.

We have raised up in this country a generation who have what I have heard called “the entitlement spending” mentality. An increasing number of voters who believe it is the state or federal governments job to see to it they are doctored, fed, clothed, housed, and provided with an ample supply of spending money.  The roots of this generation go back to the time of the Civil War. Before this era, Americans fully expected to earn their own living whereby they provided for their families and other dependents. Generally, “other dependents” in the north meant servants/employees, in the south, slaves.

This “entitlement” generation has sprung from the least educated and therefore the lowest income bracket of the preceding five generations. The domestic servants, farm laborers(not owners), shop and business clerks, street sweepers, chimney sweepers, and the newly freed slave populations in the south. The wage earners as opposed to the wage generators. The people who depended on but did not have to actually run a business for their livelihood. The people who generally had their necessities met without the worry or headaches involved in the hands-on management of the for-profit business that generated the revenue for them. In a word, the servant/slave mentality, acquired through many generations of ordinary people who were accustomed to having the “master” provide all the items still expected by their entitlement mentality descendants. This is the mind-set that grew up in the farm kitchens, domestic servants halls, slave quarters and carriage houses of the Civil War era and has now embedded itself in our public forums like so much bindweed in a border. The legislative mentality that is in a fair way to choking the life out of our entire economy. The “entitlement spending mentality.”

The descendants of this group are the people who passed the social security measure during the Great Depression, and the revised-to-target-the-individual income tax amendment before that, sometime around WWI. You see I am tracing the timeline backward to the source of our current fiscal difficulties which are found in a certain segment of our people and not in our legislative process.

These entitlement spending supporters base their legislative goals on spite. Their spending criteria are motivated by a let’s screw the “rich” people, they deserve it, mindset. Why? They perceive “rich” people as being “the enemy” for some reason. Again, why? If an individual cannot be allowed to prosper in peace in this country, if parents are to be penalized for leaving their children well provided for, the country itself will certainly not prosper. It is not prospering now, is it? My thoughts on this are not new by any means. There was a cagey old Greek by the name of Aesop who wrote a fable about this subject awhile back. It was about a dog and his bone. Look it up sometime. It sets forth in very simple style why our nation is not prospering under the sway of this entitlement mentality.

It is now time to call a halt to the hostilities in the class war that have been moving our legislation for the last fifty years.  The “poor” against the “rich.” Those of you who have been so anxious to prevent “rich” people as though they were some kind of social disease have shot yourselves in the foot. You’re scared about your old age pensions now and basically, you deserve this.  You passed all the legislation you could think of to deprive “rich” people of theirs.

Me? I’m a conscientious objector in this war. It is against my American principles of justice and fair play to grudge people their wealth. Even if their parents left it to them, it is still not mine or really any of my business. We are not going to win the war on poverty by shooting rich people and I won’t support the notion that we should quietly strangle them with legislation either. This has been tried and the result is that now “poor” people have found their own heads in the noose instead. Sorry folks. This is no more than justice.

In my continuing series of war stories, I will now touch upon a subject that will dismay and repel a great many people, especially those in the democratic party of these United States. The war against the rich. Bear with me while I give some necessary historical background.

After the new world was discovered there followed by natural cause and effect, a period of colonization by the major players in European politics at that time. Companies were founded by men who had the capital to invest. For those of my readers who don’t know what “capital” is, think of it as money acquired by an individual that is over and above what is needed for immediate living expenses. What we all think of as “wealth.” These companies were granted charters by the various crowned heads in Europe giving specified land territories in exchange for financial considerations related to trade and import/export income possibilities.

In order to sustain their companies standing in the eyes of “the crown,” these men had to recruit colonists. Men who combined within themselves the skills, personal initiative, and just plain physical courage needed to move into an unknown and untamed wilderness and build businesses that would turn a profit. In only one case I have been able to discover did these investors come themselves to face the dangers and uncertainties of the new world. They recruited men able to work without supervision, that is, men who could conceive and execute a financial plan all on their own, do the initial physical labor involved, and hire other men who would be able to add their own skills to the enterprise. And of course, these men would bring their wives and children with them, man not being a solitary animal by either choice or instinct. And the women married to such men had also to be self motivated, possessed of many skills and physical courage or they would not have survived in the new wilderness. No women, no children, no men, no colony, no profit. Thus were the majority of the colonies of the new world founded. There was at least one founded as a criminal justice colony but that is for another war story.

Dear Readers, prepare yourselves now for an unimaginable horror. Most of you have taken up the history of these United States after the Declaration of Independence of 1776. “All men were created equal” and that sort of thing and you believe that these are the principles on which  America was founded. This is not so. America was founded, colonized, and survived, on the principles of good sound business practise.

The revolutionary war came of Great Britain’s refusal to adhere to them after establishing a for-profit colony built by free men. “No taxation without representation”, was the rallying cry of the original “Tea Party” patriots.  America grew into a nation to be reckoned with by the everyday, personal efforts of those men and women who, as individuals, understood and of their own initiative, used good, sound business practises for their own profit, the profit of their employees(they were paid you know), and the profit of the original investors. America is now almost on the rocks of financial insolvency(witness the current debate on the “debt ceiling”) because the majority of voters have lost sight of this very major fact of our beginnings.

Somewhere between the eras of the Civil and the Second World Wars, Americans came to view their government as a source of unearned income for the masses. The focus became public “welfare” benefits and not free, individual, profit bearing initiatives. Somewhere in here there arose a notion that “rich” people were responsible for providing for “the masses” out of their own pockets because that was “fair,” without any thought as to where those “rich” people actually got their money. Somewhere within this time period it became a crime against all americans to be “rich.”

I have entitled this post—-the war against the rich. It ties in to the earlier American Dream posts in this blog because what is the American Dream if it is not that a person from the lower-income brackets can, by his/her own initiative, become “rich?” I have laid out the basic shift in our original expectation of legitimate individual profit to government-funded, unearned income. My next post will be a more in-depth examination as to just why and how this shift occurred and just how it is now a crime to be “rich” in America.

My next post will be—-The War Against The Rich–continued

One of the reasons I tend to go on so about modern women’s issues is that I believe we are missing a very crucial point. And this goes back to the very beginning of the “Emancipation” movement of the 1800’s. Women were not allowed to do so many things back in the day. Voting was the very least of them although that made the most noise.
My view about women’s issues is this—
Of course we have brains as good as any mans. We can and did replace them in every hands on job the World War II effort needed while the men were away fighting to prevent Hitler taking over the world. They did what they had to and we did the same.
The real point to my mind is—- men cannot replace us. Certainly in motherhood. But look at our lives today and envision the life your young daughters are going to have. Graceless, restless, full of the cheapest public sexuality that demeans both men and women. Here is a news flash ladies, decent men don’t love the notion of being treated like a mindless stud animal any more than women want to be treated like breeding stock. Yes, there are decent men around. Look for the guy with his mouth shut.
This is the year 2011. I think we’ve made our point girls. Yes, we are fully capable of being scientists and doctors. Men however, are still not capable of being mothers and our homes are now a travesty. We are missing the stability, grace, and nurturing environment in our homes and therefore our communities that only full-time wives and mothers can provide. Men cannot replace us in this field. I think a woman should be able to pursue a career if she so chooses and I think we have pretty much got that issue licked now. But look at our country. Men are still working and being fathers and providers. That has not changed. We have so much trouble and unrest, especially among our children because we are all missing the efforts or our full-time moms. To her husband, children, and community, the full-time mother is irreplaceable.
I hope that women growing up today will now find the self-respect they felt cheated of in past generations. I hope that those girls who choose to be a wife and mother will commit themselves full-time to the job with a true understanding of just how irreplaceable they really are. Maybe then we can start to rebuild our homes, communities, and country.
