The Problems With Black People: a Fred Reed Article

Fred Reed isn't always right, but he's right about this:  the chronic problems of black people appear unsolvable and intractable.  Fred writes:

It isn’t working. The racial thing, I mean. The hunting of whites, beatings of whites, calls for attacks on whites. In the age of cell phones, the media can hide only so much.
To avoid admitting that we are seeing a racial insurgency, the media insist that the police are the problem. They are not. Blacks are unmistakably gripped by a powerful racial hatred of white people. If the police were perfect, nothing would change.
There seems to be no solution. The underlying problem that will not go away is that blacks as a race have not shown themselves able to function in a modern society. Degrees and exceptions yes, but the central fact remains. One is not supposed to say this, and would that it were not true, but it is.

2016 Elections: We're Screwed Again

The polls are showing Hillary winning the election in November.  It's hard to believe that the American people could be that totally dumb, uninformed and out of touch.  But they are.  Here's why:

1.  The mainstream media has never been so partisan.  They report what they want you to hear, suppress what they don't, and spin bad news that they can't hide.  The major media is Democrat and an arm of the Democratic Party.  There is no objective journalism in the United States.

2.  Most people are low information voters.  They make their voting decision on sound bites and fleeting impressions of the candidates.  They are lazy and uninformed.  They don't bother to realize that how they vote affects their own pocket books, personal security and long-term prospects.

3.  Donald Trump has shot himself in the foot too many times.  When you are the head of a multimillion dollar corporation, you can say anything you want in the workplace; no one will dare challenge you.  That doesn't work in the public arena.  Trump has given the media a lot of ammunition to use against him.  His recent acknowledgement and apology for this may help some, but there are only two months before the election.  Time is not on his side.

Pamela Geller: a Graphic Portrait in Adobe Illustrator CC

I have been working on this graphic for a week, spending many hours learning how to do it.  I did the graphic as a learning exercise for Adobe Illustrator CC, and yes, I did learn a lot.  You learn by doing.

This is my portrait of Pamela Geller.  Is it perfect?  No.  But it ain't bad for a first serious effort at creating a digital portrait using Adobe Illustrator.  This program is not user friendly.  It's complicated, because it does a lot of complicated things.  Use as you see fit.

Learning Adobe Illustrator CC

I purchased Adobe Illustrator last week, and have been spending many hours attempting to learn it.  It is just about as difficult to learn as Photoshop.  What I really want to do is to create vector art with it, drawing and painting portraits of people, especially famous people.

This week I have been following a five part YouTube tutorial, using Pamela Geller as my chosen subject.  She is a beautiful, well-known conservative woman, and that is why I picked her.  Certain parts of the portrait have been completed with pretty fair results, namely, the eyes and mouth and teeth.  I am not satisfied with the teeth yet, however.

Still to do:  the nose, the contours of the face, using the blend mode.  The great thing about attempting this portrait is that it forces me to learn to use the Illustrator graphic tools, and to research problems as they arise.  In other words, to build a skill set through dire necessity.

Illustrator can create graphic art that is photo realistic.  Take for example this Illustrator drawing I found on the web.  The lips could be better -- they look too dry.  The teeth, however, are amazingly lifelike.

Adobe Illustrator: My First Attempt

I have added Adobe Illustrator to my graphics programs.  It is a vector graphics program -- that means it draws pictures.  The graphic at the left is my first attempt, using a tutorial I found on YouTube.  Frankly, it isn't very good.  However, the only way to learn a graphics art program is to use it, learn what controls do what.  So my first learning episode is done, and I will seek a more sophisticated tutorial for my next attempt.

Brett Kimberlin Says W.J.J. Hoge is "Nuttier Than a Fruitcake"(Photoshop, Satire)

My latest Photoshop.  Lately Brett Kimberlin has been claiming in his court filings that his legal opponent, W.J.J. Hoge, is "nuttier than a fruitcake."  Yeah right.  If you are unfamiliar with Brett Kimberlin, he is a felon who dealt drugs and who was convicted of setting bombs in and around Speedway, Indiana back in the 70's.  His latest activities include filing numerous frivolous lawsuits against bloggers who criticize his past and present misdeeds.  One of his more determined legal opponents is Mr. Hoge, who is suing Kimberlin for malicious prosecution.  Mr. Hoge is the man on the right below.

Read Mr. Hoge's blog at www.hogewash.com.


Back From Spokane

I just got back from Spokane, Washington, visiting my son in the hospital.  Dooj (his nickname) is my eldest son and suffers from lupus and a severe infection.  He is healing, but has a ways to go before he can go home.  He has been hospitalized for two months, and will probably spend another two to three months in a rehabilitation facility before he can be released.

Spokane was interesting.  It has a small town feel, two lane roads, old houses and buildings of brick.  It felt comfortable.  Here in Hollister, California, where I live, there is a sizable Hispanic population.  In Spokane the population seems to be a white majority.  For me, that means there is no significant "other" there, and frankly, I liked that.  I am not big on multiculturalism.

Hillary's Speech and Chances for Election

I got in from band practice Thursday evening and watched a replay of Hillary Clinton's acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention.  Once again, I was not impressed and felt no fear of Trump losing to her in the general election.  He may lose, but it won't be because of her rambling, boring speech.

Will Hillary receive a bounce in the polls because of the Democratic convention?  We shall see.

Dinesh D'Souza's Errant Tale: "Hillary's America"

I heard Dinesh D'Souza on Rush Limbaugh's show this morning.  D'Souza was discussing his documentary "Hillary's America," and made some misleading or downright false remarks about the Democrat Party that deserve to be refuted.

Now I am a strong Trump supporter, conservative and Republican, and would love to see Hillary go down to a historic defeat in November.  However, I am also a Confederate descendant, and I object to false memes which attempt to blame slavery and the Ku Klux Klan on the Democratic Party.  This is dishonest reporting and a distortion of historical truth.  However, even if it were true, which it is not, it would be irrelevant to the politics of today.

Further, the Democratic Party of 1860 and the one of 2016 are not remotely the same, nor is there any thread or carryover of 19th century politics into those of the 21st century.  The 21st century Democratic Party is a very different animal from that of 150 years ago.  To attempt to smear the current party with the one of ancient history is dishonest and unfair.  Moreover, it is irrelevant.

The fact is, the modern Democratic Party is the worst version of itself since the founding of the Republic.  It is fascistic in some ways, and communistic (as in globalist) in others.  It should be totally repudiated by the American people, but for its current malfeasance, corruption and tyranny, not for the actions of another century.

If you disagree, perhaps the Democrats should label us as the party of American Indian genocide, starvation of thousands of former slaves following the War for Southern Independence, high tariffs, mass murder of civilians, crimes against humanity, and theft of Hawaii from its people.

I'll have more to say about specific claims made by D'Souza later on.  Today I have to get ready for band practice and don't have the time.

Bubba's Speech to the Democratic Convention, 2016

Bill Clinton's speech to the Democratic Convention yesterday was telling.  His job was to laud, praise and recommend his wife, Hillary Clinton, to be President of the United States.  He didn't have much to say regarding Hillary's accomplishments:  she doesn't have many.  Instead, he talked about their grand romance, their courtship, their wedding.  Since everyone is aware of Bill's prodigious infidelity, the tale was a bit hard to believe.

After watching much of the proceedings of Day 2, I felt no fear or apprehension about Hillary's chances for election.  Even Slick Willie couldn't B.S. her resume into something substantive and impressive.

Politics Suck and The GOP Convention 2016

I haven't written much lately.  I have been too disgusted and too lazy.

I've been watching the GOP Convention in Cleveland, and feel that it has been pretty good so far.  I loved the way Giuliani and Gingrich savaged Hillary in speeches to the convention.

The Democrat Convention will be a freak fest of weirdos, Marxists and nut balls.  They will be vicious in their attempt to continue the destruction of  American liberty, prosperity and sovereignty.

Meanwhile, the butt-hurt anti-Trump "conservative" losers continue their descent into irrelevancy.  I will redo my blog face soon, and delete a lot of them from my blog roll.  That would include Moonbattery, Red State, National RINO Online and others.

Right now, I am looking forward to Donald Trump's speech to the Convention tonight.

RATS: Republicans Against Trump

To the Republicans who support Hillary, either directly or indirectly, I say, "A pox on you.  I can hardly wait to reregister as something other than a Republican.  I will never support the Establishment GOP again."

Stogie Health Update

My illnesses have healed up and my son in Washington is improving.  Son will be in for a long convalescence, however, considering the seriousness of his infection.

Father & Son Both Sick

Last week I came down with a kidney infection.  The pain was debilitating, and I spent several days in bed or on the couch.  I am on antibiotics and the infection is on the wane.  I will take the antibiotics for another ten days per the doctor's advice, to make sure the nasty bug is really dead.

My eldest son in Washington State also came down with a serious infection, and is currently in the intensive care unit of a hospital.  He is having his second surgery tomorrow (Monday) and will remain in the ICU for a few more days.  The nurse on station told us that he is responding to the medication and is in stable condition.  That's good.  I feared that we were going to lose him.

We are planning to fly to Spokane to visit him on Saturday this week.

Islam Has Got to Go

By now everyone has heard about the Muslim man who shot and killed over 50 people in a gay nightclub last night in Orlando, Florida.  Islam is a religion of mass murder -- anyone who has read the Koran is aware of that.  As long as there are great numbers of Muslims among us, these incidents of mass murder will continue.  I have harped on that theme over and over again for the past ten years.  Nothing has changed, not even the left's denial of Islam's barbaric nature.  Many on the Alt Right also deny Islam's true nature, blaming Muslim violence on "blow back" or the false flags of some great conspiracy.

Islam has got to go.  But until we can devise a plan for ridding the planet of this malevolent ideology, we must first separate ourselves from Muslims.  All Islamic immigration into the west must stop.  Now, without exception.  All foreign aid and military assistance to Muslim countries must cease. Recent Muslim immigrants must be collected and sent back to their nations of origin.

Here are some useful facts.

The enemy of my enemy is not my friend.  Some see in Muslim jihadists potential allies against the "Great Satan," the United States.  No matter what your beef against the USA, whether it be Mexicans who want California back, Southerners who want their country back, communists who want to end capitalism, paranoid conspiracy-theorists who want their theories validated -- Islam is not their friend.  Islam is only the friend of Islam.  This was well established by Muhammad, war lord and bandit, who invented the religion back in the 7th Century.

Muhammad was a megalomaniac, like other tyrants in history (Gengis Khan, Caligula, Tamerlane, Attila the Hun, Alexander the Great) he wanted to rule the world, or much of it.  He thirsted for power and riches, and had no empathy for his fellow man.  Muhammad was just another tyrant in the long sweep of history.  However, without royalty or station or any other claim to leadership, he had to invent his own.  Thus he became a "prophet of God," a man so revered and respected by God that the Deity granted him control of all the earth.  His mission:  to forcefully unite the world under the new religion of Islam, and kill or enslave any who refused to go along.

Of course, during the holy wars to accomplish this, a lot of "booty," i.e. treasure was collected in the process, one-fifth of which went to Muhammad, the rest divided among his henchmen.  Other prizes of war included human beings to be sold into slavery, and young women to rape.  And land, of course, like the date farms of the Jews he conquered.  This was an appealing profession for every Arabic cutthroat and bandit of the era -- to murder, rob, and rape for God, all with His blessing!  No need to even feel slightly guilty.  This was God's work.

But Muhammad wasn't satisfied.  He always wanted more, more, more.  So he ordered continuing warfare against all mankind, to make them obeisant to Allah, the god he invented.  Of course, a side benefit was that as Allah's prophet, Muhammad would get to rule the world and avail himself of all of its riches.  Some cynics suspect that this was Muhammad's main goal all along, Allah or no Allah.

Muhammad was a smart cookie.  He had to give his armies great incentive to prevail in battle, to be unconquerable and irresistible.  To do this, he had to remove their fear of death.  So the pretext for martyrdom was invented.  Any Muslim soldier who died in Muhammad's wars of conquest would go directly to Heaven, bypassing the Day of Judgment.  In fact, this was the only sure way to get to Heaven.  A non-combatant Muslim's chance of Heaven was only one in one thousand.  A Muslim who died in battle was sure of his Heavenly abode.  Further, he could bring with him 60 or 70 family members and friends who died peacefully -- so his mom, sisters, wives, uncles, cousins -- whoever -- could get to Heaven on his dime.  Muhammad's strategy was ingenious -- not only did it take away the fear of death among his followers, it actually made death desirable.  This created ruthless and relentless soldiers who were very difficult to defeat.

This strategy worked well for Muhammad, and Islam forcefully expanded rapidly throughout Arabia.  Unfortunately, 1,384 years after his death, the great killing machine that Muhammad set in motion goes on.  Young Muslim men are ready, willing and able to continue the War on All Mankind, dying in jihad (holy war) to ensure that they and their loved ones go to Heaven.  A Heaven, it seems, that is presided over by the most vicious version of God ever created.

Stogie's Background:  After the 911 attack on New York, I began reading books on Islam to understand its beliefs, methods and motivations.  I have read around 18 books on the history and practices of Islam, including the Koran and the classic "Life of Mahomet" by Sir William Muir.

Voting for The Donald and His Great Big Mouth

My wife dropped off our absentee ballots to the Registrar of Voters today.  We voted for Trump, but for the first time, I held my nose while doing it.  Trump's latest missteps include insulting the judge in a case against him (a really stupid move), and calling a reporter "a sleaze."  I hate to say it, but Hillary may be right in noting that Trump does not have the temperament to be president -- but then, neither does she.  A former White House guard is just releasing a book "Crisis of Character," in which he describes Shrillary as angry, sometimes violent, and over the top nuts.

Will someone close to Trump tell him to STFU?  When he makes himself look like an ass, he makes us, his supporters look none too bright as well.  All of Trump's intemperate comments will come back to haunt him in Democrat attack ads between now and November.  Get a clue, Donald.

Follow Up on My Wife's Heart Operation

Last week my wife underwent a surgical procedure to correct her repeated bouts of tachycardia, i.e. rapid heart beat.  She first began having this condition in 1988.  The procedure was done at Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos, California.  It was an outpatient procedure, and she was awake without anesthesia during the operation.  The doctors cauterized a second heart node that was causing the problem.

Since the operation, her heartbeat and blood pressure have been normal and she feels great!  She has been happy and cheerful, and I haven't see her like that for some years.

In another 15 minutes, it will be June 5, 2016 -- our 40th wedding anniversary.  This has been a great gift from medical science, and we will be looking for fun and entertainment to celebrate our life together.

Lesson of San Jose: Time to Deport the Illegals

In my former hometown of San Jose yesterday, illegal aliens (aka "wetbacks") and their leftist supporters attacked Trump fans.  Trump voters were punched, or had rocks or eggs thrown at them.  I wasn't there, and it's probably great that I wasn't.  If ever we needed free carry of firearms, now is the time.  The illegals have gotten way out of hand, as happens in a "sanctuary city" where U.S. immigration laws are deliberately unenforced.  The illegal scum have an enormous sense of entitlement, and why not?  Jerry Brown and his democratic fascist followers have made it easy for illegals to vote in this state.  They can sign up when they get their California drivers license.

Liberal politicians are a kind of acid that is slowly dissolving our country.  Yes, I am voting for Trump.  The condition of the country is increasingly desperate, and the Presidency is not a job for wimps.

San Jose Trump Supporter?

Memorial Day 2016: Did Our Soldiers Die for Freedom?

Memorial Day, 2016.  I am rather apathetic about Memorial Day this year.  The Zeitgeist has determined that Confederate soldiers, sailors and marines are to be written out of American history and inclusion.  Monuments and memorials to these veterans are being desecrated and eradicated in a fanatical frenzy all over the country.  Placement of Confederate flags on Confederate graves is forbidden in national cemeteries.  Perhaps at some point, Confederate tombstones will be bulldozed, lest Black Thugs Matter be offended by men 150 years dead.

American soldiers have not always fought for freedom, though we like to attach that flowery phrase to their mortal sacrifices.  The American fighting man did indeed fight for freedom in the Revolutionary War and World War II, as well as Korea and Vietnam.  In those wars they opposed an enemy dedicated to the destruction of self-determination and self-governance.

Of course, in Korea and Vietnam, our troops fought for the freedom of someone else, not Americans.  Perhaps our involvement can be rationalized by the belief that, if Communist aggression were allowed to proceed unchecked, then our own freedom would be jeopardized in the near future.  Was the death toll worth it?  The answer is subjective.  I am happy that Korea was spared from the collectivist tyranny, and I regret that the Democrat Party sold our Vietnamese allies down the river.

Other wars in our history are not as clear cut.  Did we fight for freedom in the Civil War?  Yes and no.  The South fought for the right to govern itself; the North fought to prevent it.

Did we fight for freedom in the Spanish-American war?  If so, it isn't obvious to me.  Likewise in the Mexican war of the 1840s. Texas fought to secede from Mexico and govern itself, so as far as Texas is concerned, they were indeed fighting for freedom, i.e. Texas independence.  Mostly, however, that war was merely a land grab.  Mexico had lands that we wanted, and we took them by force.

Did we fight for freedom in World War I?  No.  We probably should never have gotten involved.  It is said that we were fighting "to make the world safe for democracy."  What balderdash.  If anything, we fought to defend our allies in Britain and France against the Germans -- kinfolk supporting kinfolk in a time of crisis, even though there was no clear-cut case of good vs evil.  World War I was a confused and chaotic mess without any clear goals for either side.  To this day I cannot tell you what the two sides were fighting for.  It remains a mystery.

Did we fight for freedom in Iraq and Afghanistan?  The answer seems clear:  no.  I think we fought there to destroy the threat of attacks by Islamists against other Islamists and against ourselves.  The theory was that by turning Iraq and Afghanistan into modern democracies, they would lose their aggressive tendencies, much as Germany and Japan did after their defeat in World War II.  This was prefaced on the mistaken belief that all peoples, everywhere, secretly yearn for democracy and individual freedom.  They do not so yearn in Muslim countries, or at least, the majority do not.  They want to be ruled by fanatical clerics and Sharia law.  Attempting to turn these barbarian cultures into modern, pluralistic democracies was a fool's errand from the start.  Most of the American lives lost there were wasted.

Not all American soldiers and sailors and marines died "for freedom."  Although we should keep our military strong and ready, it should not be used to enter ambiguous wars where there is no clear threat to our own freedoms.  The lives of our sons and daughters are too precious to waste.

Cemetery Musings: Preparing for My Final Expenses

Oak Hill Cemetery, San Jose California
Since my wife had heart surgery on Wednesday, she became concerned with the what-ifs of our earthly existence, and figured it was time to arrange for our burials.  We already had our cemetery plots picked out and, along with our coffins, paid for, just a few yards from the graves of my parents.  However, there is more to final expenses than that.  You need a tombstone and have to pick out the type and color of granite from a wall chart, as well as a "vault," which is a metal box that encloses the casket.  The vault prevents your grave from caving in and prevents water intrusion.  There are several types of vaults to choose from, including stainless steel, copper, bronze and others.  We chose the stainless steel.  We settled on a slate-blue gray for the flat tombstone, which will be one stone for the both of us.

The cost of all this is $9,000 for the two of us, paid over five years:  $1,000 down and $150 a month to pay off the balance.  If one dies before payment is complete, the balance due for that person is forgiven.  If we both die, the entire balance is forgiven.

So when we die, our corpses will be sealed and preserved for centuries to come.  Why?  For what purpose?  I would prefer the old-fashioned way of burial, in a pine box where the remains are allowed to completely decompose back to their basic elements, perhaps adding some nutrients to the soil.  The other alternative is cremation.  As I watched the blur over the crematory's smoke stacks, i.e. the heated air carrying water vapor from burning bodies, I decided that was not for me.

Walking through the administrative offices of San Jose's Oak Hill Cemetery gave me the creeps.  Death is all around you.  Somewhere, down the halls in the back rooms, corpses are being washed, embalmed, coiffed and dressed in their Sunday best, then laid out in richly upholstered coffins for display.  A large HD screen in back of the reception desk displays the names of the deceased, the funeral services to be held, the burial dates, the chapels to be used.  A large percentage of the names were Vietnamese.

Everywhere you go, in the sales offices, the viewing rooms, the main vestibule, and even the bathrooms --  there is the cloying smell of flowers. It is a perfume that seems spread through the facility through the air conditioning system.  No doubt this has the same purpose that funeral flowers have had for millenia -- to hide the smell of death.  In older times, the smell was that of decay, but today the smell is that of formaldehyde, i.e. embalming fluid.  The smell took away any appetite I might have had.  I didn't even want to drink the bottled water they gave us.  It was "dead people's water."  Or so I imagined.

I first noticed the weird smell of a funeral when I was around seven years of age, and saw my first deceased person in a coffin -- my maternal grandfather.  I was very aware of the odor of embalming fluid, a smell that I will forever associate with funerals and death.  Which is convenient, since that's about all it is used for.

It's pretty hard to have any cheerful thoughts when visiting cemetery offices, to prepare for one's own final expenses.  You have to finally admit that you are mortal, that you are going to die.  You can ignore it and not think about it, and delay the morbid feelings that acknowledgement brings.  Let your surviving relatives worry about what to do with your body and how to pay for it.  Or, you can do as I and my Mrs did this week, make the arrangements well in advance, sparing your relatives the burden.

In spite of my morbid thoughts about this experience, I am grateful that cemetery companies exist, that morticians and coffin makers and florists and grave diggers exist.  Sending someone off on their final journey is not a pleasant task, but someone has to do it.  Now that it is settled, I plan to wait around for the Grim Reaper to show up, then punch him in the mouth and run.

A Day in the Hospital

On Wednesday morning my wife checked into Good Samaritan Hospital in Los Gatos for a surgical procedure on her heart.  She has long suffered from irregular heartbeat and tachycardia, and this procedure was to see what was going on and what, if anything, could be done about it.

She checked into the Short Stay Cath Lab in the basement, and was awake during the procedure, viewing her own heart on a television screen as the doctor talked to her about what he was seeing.  It seems she had a second heart node that was likely the cause of the rapid heart beat.  They cauterized it, and hopefully that will end the problem.

Before we arrived at the hospital, we went to Oak Hill Cemetery in San Jose to finish preparations for our final expenses, just in case.  More about that in the next post.

The Billboard Music Awards 2016: Pathetic

I watched the Billboard Music Awards last night on television.  I could hardly believe my eyes or ears, that anyone would put such talentless and artless crap on television and call it music.

Britney Spears did a kind of slow walk-through of a dance(?) routine, singing or chanting or making barely audible sounds in any case.  Her routine was very simple and meaningless, like something a child would learn in grade school for an entertain-the-parents play.  Also, the words were stupid, the music awful.  Any teenage garage band could have done better.  The people in the audience clapped listlessly at the end of each number, like "Whatever."  No one seemed impressed.

Justin Bieber was also terrible.  Stupid songs, no tune, no beat, meaningless words, and Bieber's voice was completely blah.  The searing mediocrity of the performances was not hidden by the overuse of lighting effects and pyrotechnics.  One lady sang suspended from a large, burning clock.  Nice, but actual music and talent cannot be replaced with gimmicks.

There was one other singer, a young male who started playing an acoustic guitar, then moved to a room where a simulated downpour could be seen through the windows, where he then switched to piano.  His voice wasn't too bad, but again the song was to barf for.  My wife noted that the song "had no hook," and she was right.

The state of American music is at such a low point, there is opportunity for a new star to arise from the ashes.  Someone who can sing and play and provide a beat that makes one want to move his feet.  If they hurry, they won't have hardly any competition at all.  Somewhere out there is the next Elvis, the next Beatles, the next Michael Jackson.  Let's hope he, she or they show up soon.

The New Genderless Society

I have often poo-pooed R.S. McCain's seeming fixation on the sick subculture of feminism (think ugly lesbians who hate men).  However, I am beginning to see the value of his walk on the weird side.  It seems the fat, ugly lesbians (also known as FULs) want to eradicate gender from our society altogether.  Is this where the current madness came from, the move to make all public bathrooms genderless or "trans-gender"?

It seems the Democratic Party (as well as liberal Republicans) are too willing to follow the lead of the Kook Element on college campuses.  Whatever new extremist fad is invented, it will be immediately picked up by the mainstream political establishment who see it as revealed truth.  New victims must be found. lest we run out of ways to signal our virtue and demonstrate our enlightenment.  If no new victims can be found, they must be invented.  Hence, a boy who likes to dress up like girls and use the latter's bathroom is the new victim.

Next will be the "furries," a new group of people who like to dress up as animals.  A guy in my previous rock band now dresses up like a wolf, and hangs around with various other species cross-dressers.  Someday soon Target will pass a policy allowing those dressed as giant chickens to use the stall next to yours, and if the clucking bothers you, too bad.

In the end, the long-term goal of the radical left is to eliminate all class, race, and gender divisions.  There are to be no differences between humans, at all.  Socialists have long advocated that everyone in society earn the same pay, from the CEO down to the mailroom clerk, and that will become a burning issue sooner or later. "Inequality of income" must be removed.  Perhaps we will adopt a kind of uniform so that everyone will dress in the same fashion and color as everyone else.  Only one deodorant will be manufactured, so that everyone smells the same as well.

How else can we achieve universal equality?  Well, no more bands and orchestras can be allowed, because of the divisions -- rhythm, brass and woodwinds.  And what if someone plays better than another?  The latter's feelings will be terribly hurt.  Therefore, bands and orchestras will have only one instrument that anyone can play, perhaps a kazoo.

Yes, America will become a Freak Show.  Or should I say, MORE of a freak show.

Decline of the West: Who Cares?

Western Civilization is on a downhill slide.  Massive Islamic and other Third World immigration is changing the European demographic to one more amenable to the new fascism the left has in mind.  Our free market system is to be replaced with collectivism, and our society to be strictly regimented into what we can say, think or do.

The latest leftwing obscenity is a frontal attack on the idea of gender.  Are we men and women, or something else?

We are being erased and replaced, but we don't care.  Screw it.

I actually do care, but feel resigned to it.  The left is insane and wants to commit cultural and demographic suicide.  Moreover, they want to take us all with them.  Resistance is futile.  Or so they would like you to believe.

Google's Goofy Graphic

This is the goofy graphic that Google is using today.  It shows a homely yet smug Asian woman speaking into a microphone, probably to urge on the sign-bearing demonstrators behind her.  Their signs spell out "EQUALITY," as if they didn't have it already.  This graphic conjures for me the ugly image of college campuses, where strident minorities rail against the white oppressor, while making absurd demands.  The "equality" they seeks is equality of access to your pocketbook or wallet.  They want free stuff, and they feel so morally superior in demanding it.

Of course, equality of responsibility and productivity is not what they seek.  The world owes them a living for just being here and taking up space.

UPDATE:  I found this info on FakeBook's "Crony Capitalism" site, referring to this graphic:
Today Google celebrates Yuri Kochiyama the woman who once said this -
“I consider Osama bin Laden as one of the people that I admire. To me, he is in the category of Malcolm X, Che Guevara, Patrice Lumumba, Fidel Castro, all leaders that I admire.”
My instincts were right.  Take one homely, smug Third Worlder with a microphone and you have a commie agitator.

Anti-Trump Republicans' New Strategy!

There is currently a lot of whining, cry-baby insults and memes from the GOP Anti-Trump crowd.  Dave at Moonbattery has been throwing some impressive temper-tantrums.

My major reasons for supporting Trump are clear:  (1) He wants to stop illegal immigration, (2) He wants to stop Muslim immigrations, (3) He hates political correctness and wants to destroy it, (4) He wants to rebuild the military that has been so badly weakened by Obama, (5) He wants to fix bad trade deals with foreign countries that transfer American jobs overseas.

However, the anti-Trump Republicans have a new strategy:  shoot themselves in the foot, and then reload and shoot the other foot.  Brilliant move, crybabies.  Grow up and get with the program.

The Secret Desire of Every Feminist! (Photoshop)

LONG LIVE THE PATRIARCHY

Just busting a few Feminist Fuses!

Why?  Because they piss me off.  I despise their invented code words and language, their assumption that their freakishness is normal, that their skewed viewpoints on gender and sexuality are deserving of respect.

Now that this Photoshop is on the web, may it spread far and wide, and utterly annoy warped lesbian, man-hating feminist freakazoids everywhere.

Make yourselves useful, Femi-Nazis.  Learn to make decent sandwiches.

Anger Over Trump's Success - and Other Stories of the Day

Donald Trump's Victory
It now appears likely, if not certain, that Donald Trump will gather enough delegate votes to win the GOP presidential nomination on the first ballot.  It is surprising to me the extent of anger from some conservatives, who have described Trump as "evil," or a boor or buffoon.  They almost seem to support Hillary to avoid having to vote for Trump.  Ben Shapiro is one of the most obnoxious, describing Trump supporters as "Trump Chumps" on FaceBook.

Well, too bad.  I have had to hold my nose during the last two elections and vote for John McCain and then Mitt Romney, because the Democrat alternative seemed so much worse.  I won't have to hold my nose when I vote for Trump here in California on June 7.  However, Trump's a gamble, just as McCain and Romney were gambles.  Maybe he'll be a great president in spite of GOP pessimism.  Maybe not, but I am willing to take a chance at this point.

I no longer care that much if a candidate claims to be a "conservative."  Conservative Republicans helped Democrats trash my Confederate heritage a few months back, and that's when my loyalty to the GOP was greatly weakened.  Do I want to "burn it down," referring the the Republican Party?  Hell, hand me the matches.

Brett Kimberlin's Successive Defeats in Court
I have been following the Brett Kimberlin saga over at Hogewash.com, for some time now.  It seems Kimberlin has been losing almost every motion and case, even without trial, as judges keep approving summary judgment motions by Kimberlin's lawfare victims, or othewise dismissing the case.  Aaron Walker sued Kimberlin and his wife for malicious prosecution recently, and Kimberlin failed to answer the complaint and this resulted in a default judgment in Walker's favor.  Kimberlin told the judge he was "Okay with the default," but he gave Kimberlin another eight days to answer the complaint before the judgment is filed.  If Kimberlin answers the complaint, the case may proceed to trial.  If not, the only hearing heard next is to fix the level of damages owed to Walker.  Kimberlin had earlier filed a motion for summary judgment, but it was denied.   This meant that discovery could begin and the case could be scheduled for trial.

It should be interesting to see how it all plays out.  Kimberlin has had seemingly unlimited energy in filing lawsuits and filing appeals when he loses by summary judgement or has cases dismissed (due to res judicata, statute of limitations, and other legal issues).  This is the first time I and others have witnessed what appears to be battle fatigue on Kimberlin's part.  He is just throwing in the towel.  Or maybe not.  We'll know by next week.

William Hoge has also filed a lawsuit against Kimberlin and some of his associates, for malicious prosecution and defamation.  After three years of fighting Kimberlin's many lawsuits, both Walker and Hoge have decided that payback time has arrived.  And you know what they say about payback.  Yes, it has a lot in common with Hillary.

GIANT CONSPIRACIES! The Titanic was Deliberately Sunk for the Insurance Money!

Another great conspiracy has arisen among the tinfoil hat brigade:  the Titanic was switched with its sister ship, the Olympic, and the latter deliberately sunk to obtain the insurance money.

YouTube has several videos by various people who believe this theory and are spreading it far and wide.

However, the Titanic and the Olympic, though similar in appearance, were not identical.  Any attempt to switch the two would have been noticed by the crew, the passengers and the workers who built both ships.  Also, how did they get the iceberg in the right place at the right time?  Why would the president of the White Star Line (Bruce Ismay) and the ship's designer (Thomas Andrews) sail on a ship that was to be deliberately sunk?  The story is beyond incredible.

However, decide for yourself by viewing the facts and the rebuttals at this site.  NOTE:  a list of irrefutable facts will never convince the conspiracy theorists.  Similar, comprehensive rebuttals are online refuting the Kennedy Assassination Conspiracists, as well as the 911 "Inside Job" kooks.  However, I do love to skewer their lame arguments.
