The Confederate State of the Black Union 2009


Well, it’s that time of year again.  The time when Tavis Smiley shaves his goatee, takes a few painkillers and launches into a 40 minute soliloquy about how great he is for organizing his separatist house party against Amerikkka (being broadcast live on C-Span).  Tavist, though an ardent Hillary supporter, is now blowing the whistle on the Obama choo-choo.

On his undistinguished panel there are college activists, Al Sharpton, Cornell West, noted cannibal Randall Robinson, Julianne “I Hope Clarence Thomas Dies” Malveaux and a cast of thousands  of other “We changed our Christian names to Islamic ones” sitting in white leather barcaloungers with Barack Obama’s face embroidered to the back of the chair. Last and most certainly least – Michael Steele.

Seriously, having Steele on the  panel is like someone cloning Deb Frisch and holding a Protein Wisdom convention where they only invited her to attend.

Currently, Michael Steele is bragging about how blacks do not believe in a “monolithic” fashion in this country (though you couldn’t tell by this event) and also claiming that the NY Post cartoon was an “abomination”.  RNC – this is your new head.

I’ll update as offensive commentary comes up much like I did last year.  Honestly, this is a full-time job and some people should have foregone CPAC to attend this.

That didn’t take long for Julianne Malveaux to lecture Steele about how he needs to gethis boys in order.  Last I recall, calling someone a “boy” was racist.  Also that he needs to tell his “boys” to vote for the stimulus so that Obama can underwrite interest free educations for Historically Black College students.  Tavis dutifully doesn’t let Steele respond and moves on to the next question after he’s assailed by this former pseudo-journalist.

Al Sharpton claims that white people have had to ask a black man to bail them out of all the trouble they’ve caused. To cheering applause I might add.  Oh, and we are “on the deck of the Titanic and we are going down!”  No disagreement on that last point.

Sharpton then targets Steele by praising him for supporting his boycott of the NY Post’s racist monkey stimulus cartoon but that he must now pledge himself to allowing Obama to shut down Fox News.

I am not making this stuff up, you really should be watching it on C-Span (5:35 EST) as it’s now archived.  It’s far more interesting than your CPAC “we’ve got to expand our base” BS.

30 Minutes in and the panel is still slaving away over a white, hot stove brimming with Bush-Hate.

Tavis implores the universally black audience that they are going to have to love Obama even though he is going to do things to piss them off.  Like when he didn’t say that he supported Roland Burris taking his Senate seat.  You don’t need to understand why – you just need to support him anyway.

As this is very early in the conference, let me make a prediction that happens every year at this event but cannot be underscored enough in judging the character of a man.  At some point, someone is going to say something so completely beyond the pale, racist and un-American that Steele should get up out of his seat and walk out.  Lady and gentlemen, let me be the first to wager that Steele getting offended enough to walk out of this event will never happen.  He will sit there and clap and applaud right along with them with nary a word of criticism.

Tavist unironically asks Cornell West about Eric Holders’ comments about America being cowards when it comes to talking about race from the podium of a race-based conference that has no one of any other race in attendance on their panel.

Look up “irony” Tavist.  It’s not that cleaning service run by the Koreans down the street. (more…)

Let’s Have A Tea Party

It’s national tea party day, and like T-Man, I have to work so that I can pay taxes to provide more handouts for the Obamabots.

However, I have it on good authority that some Buffet regulars are heading down to Nashville for the Nashville Tea Party. Hopefully they will report back later in the day. If you’re in the middle Tennessee area, get down to Legislative Plaza around Noon to protest the Feds’ attempt to bankrupt the country and control our lives through confiscatory taxation and environmental restrictions on our daily lives. Or, if not, find one in your area.

T-Man’s contribution to Tea Party day is definitely worth a read. It’s “How to Explain Conservatism to Your Squishy Liberal Friends: Individualism ‘R’ Us” by P.J. O’Rourke. My Tea Party Contribution today is to steal T-Man’s Tea Party contribution. It’s blog redistribution. Read and share with your uneducated friends. They need someone besides Katie Couric and Oprah to explain Conservatism in clear and simple terms.

Collectivism doesn’t work because it’s based on a faulty economic premise. There is no such thing as a person’s “fair share” of wealth. The gross national product is not a pizza that must be carefully divided because if I get too many slices, you have to eat the box. The economy is expandable and, in any practical sense, limitless.

Under collectivism, powers of determination rest with the entire citizenry instead of with the specific citizens. Individual decision-making is replaced by the political process. Suddenly, the system that elected the prom queen at your high school is in c harge of your whole life. Besides, individuals are smarter than groups, as anybody who is a member of a committee or of a large Irish family after six in the evening can tell you. The difference between individual intelligence and group intelligence is th e difference between Harvard University and the Harvard University football team.

Good News For Monkey Lovers

There has been a lot of pain and heartache over Congress’ attempt to stop people from keeping monkeys as pets. If you can’t have them as pets, here’s the next best thing…

The doll’s description from Ashton Drake (maker of all sorts of collectibles…):

Fall in love with Little Umi, a collectible orangutan baby doll you have to see to believe, and the first-ever So Truly Real® baby monkey doll! Beautifully crafted, her head and limbs are of collector-quality silicone that recreate every realistic detail of her face, hands and feet. Hand-rooted wispy red hair covers her from head to toe. Offer Little Umi her FREE pacifier and watch as she gazes up at you with gentle, trusting eyes.

And, as Mrs. Holmes pointed out to me, guaranteed not to attack!

Just when you think all is lost, there is always a ray of primate-themed sunshine.

Commie, Homo-Loving Sons of Guns Bad for Business

Who knew?

For seven years, MOVIEGUIDE® has been looking at the political content of the Top 250 English-language movies that open nationally each year in the United States. An examination of the domestic box office averages for movies promoting an unabashedly socialist or Communist viewpoint shows that such movies averaged only about $15.5 million and $7 million per movie from 2002 through 2008.

2008 boxoffice receipts prove this point.

… movies released in 2008 coming from a more liberal or leftist sensibility (including Steven Soderbergh’s movie honoring Che Guevara, “Mamma Mia!” and Bill Maher’s “Religulous”) averaged only $11.4 million at the box office, but that movies with more conservative content, including the new Indiana Jones movie where the villain is a spy from the Soviet Union, “Prince Caspian” and the Christian movie “Fireproof,” which attacked the porn industry, averaged $81.2 million.

The question remains, why can’t conservatives create an alternative to Hollywood?

Sure The Omega Code was a turd, but you can’t hold that against us forever.

Just A Few Thoughts On The Fake State Of The Union

The Jindal Response Update: Anyone who looks at Jindal’s response as a shot across the bow for his 2012 Presidential bid needs to get their head out of the sand.  Yea, you only like him so you can play the race card back at Democrats.  Admit it.

(walk on stage like there’s a stick up his ass but that he doesn’t mind it so much)

Opening line:  “What an amazing thing we watched!  A black guy.  Goshdarnit, that’s terrific!  Let’s all give ourselves a hand  *smattering of disjointed applause*

I am also like Barack Obama!

(insert standard boilerplate Republican pap about Washington not being the answer and trusting people to think for themselves)

“Republican voters, we took you for granted.  You voted for us and we turned you out like two dollars whores with no kiss.  But we will make it up to you.  Just give us another chance.  We’ve changed I tells ya!  We’ve changed!  We’ve got to stand for something again.”

Actions speak louder, bub.  The only thing Republicans stood for tonight were Standing Ovations for even greater increases in the federal government stealing freedom out of the wallets of its people again.

McMurphy Rating: Two Thumbs Down

The Fake SotU:

A.  I would say that Urkel is smoking crack were he not so clear in his preference for powdered cocaine.

B.  All the Republicans who are giving standing ovations for Socialism ought to be taken out back in kicked in the fucking head until their perceptions are properly aligned or until dead.  Whichever comes first and I don’t care which.

Any upstanding conservative would have boycotted this speech but no.  Mitch “The Bitch” McConnell’s superfluous chins are right down there clapping along (and offbeat I might add).

We need more money for education!  We need bonuses for performing teachers!

*ahem*  Are these the same teachers who have produced our stupid kids to begin in the Democrat run schools of major metropolitan areas?  Bonuses for failure teachers.  Bonuses for bad banks.  Bonuses for deadbeats.

And tax increases for small business owners who make more than $250,000 a year.   America – you voted for the Great Depression and you are about to get it.  Your carbon footprint will soon be replaced by your regular footprint as it stands in a breadline at the soup kitchen.

Oh, and I’m just dealing with the problem you people who keep standing up and clapping for me on the left side of the aisle created.  Yea, that shut you up didn’t it?

Really, this is the most boilerplate liberal pap.  The only thing worse than listening to it will be reading the inky ejaculations of tomorrow’s headlines.

Wilders on Beck

Geert Wilders on Glenn Beck talking about what a bunch of pussies the U.K. has become.

At least in the U.S. we haven’t yet become a bunch of dhimmis. If President Hussein has his way, we’ll get there.


More fun with Moohammed in the UK: British muzlim sprays fecal matter in four different businesses last may in Gloucestershire. Brits across the U.K. weep and ask themselves what they could have done to cause this man to do such a thing.

Daifallah then moved on to Waterstone’s bookstore in Cirencester where it is alleged he sprayed the brown substance all over a toilet in the coffee shop.

Staff noticed the smell but it was not until after he had left the store that they discovered a 20-metre area of 38 shelves had been doused in the foul substance.

In total 706 books were contaminated, most of them in the children’s section.

On May 16 at around 11am Daifallah is said to have visited the Tesco store in Quedgeley.

Mr Dent said a customer saw Daifallah reach into his laptop bag and produce a jet of fluid over the frozen chips.

He allegedly moved on to the wine section where a member of staff saw a fine vapour come from bag and on to the wine, leaving brown fluid over the shelves….

Religion of feces? Something like that.

Chuckle-Worthy Tone Deafness

From the NYT (via Newsbusters)

Some of the unscripted moments on cable news are cringe-worthy. So why do the channels post them on their Web sites? Perhaps they have realized that if they don’t, others will post them on YouTube. They would rather replay an embarrassing segment with advertisements attached.

Just know we’re not talking about Chris Matthew’s leg tingles or Olbermann’s coverage of the primaries.

Take a guess at what makes the NYT cringe.

The $1 Billion Dollar Terrorist Bailout

How many more 1972 Munichs can Abbas finance with Obama acting as Rooftop Credit Ape?  We shall soon see:

The United States plans to pledge more than $900 million to help rebuild Gaza after Israel’s invasion and strengthen the Western-backed Palestinian Authority, a U.S. official said on Monday.

The money will be channeled through U.N. and other bodies and will not be distributed via the militant group Hamas, which rules Gaza, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton plans to make the announcement next week at a Gaza donors conference in Egypt.

It appears that first phone call after winning the election was to give a verbal confirmation that Abbas’ credit line for new Katyusha rockets had been approved.  Dare I say, any American Jew who voted for Obama is a traitor to their race.

Yea.  I dared it.

So not only will Americans get to directly finance terrorism against Israel, we will now be responsible for UN workers molesting children in Gaza after the blue helmet kleptocrats get their filthy paws on what’s left of our money.

Olmert abruptly announced last week that Israel would not reopen Gaza’s long-blockaded borders — the main Israeli concession sought by Hamas — unless Hamas-affiliated militants first freed Sgt. Gilad Schalit, who was seized in a June 2006 cross-border raid.

Long-time readers of this blog may remember that the new head editorial writer for the Nashville City Paper once claimed that Gilad Schalit’s kidnapping was faked by the Israelis to use as a pretext for attacking Palestinians at the coaxing of the Project For A New American Century.

Don’t claim you weren’t warned NCP.

The New Hope and Change Economy

Who knew that when the Obamessiah and his zombie followers chanted CHAAAAAANGE… CHAAAAAAAANGE that he meant that he’d take us back to DOW 3000?

Yeah, it’s not there yet, but this column at Investors Business Daily outlines exactly why we’re headed in a downward spiral that isn’t about to stop. President Hussein’s “stimulus” package has only made it worse – much worse.

Today, as the market continues to sell off and we plumb 12-year lows, we wish we had a different explanation. But it still looks, as we said four months ago, “like the U.S., which built the mightiest, most prosperous economy the world has ever known, is about to turn its back on the free-enterprise system that made it all possible.”

How else would you explain all that’s happened in a few short weeks? How else would you expect the stock market, where millions cast daily votes and which is still the best indicator of what the future holds, to act when:

• Newsweek, a prominent national newsweekly, blares from its cover “We Are All Socialists Now,” without a hint of recognition that socialism in its various forms has been repudiated by history — as communism’s collapse in the USSR, Eastern Europe and China attest.

Even so, a $787 billion “stimulus,” along with a $700 billion bank bailout, $75 billion to refinance bad mortgages, $50 billion for the automakers, and as much as $2 trillion in loans from the Fed and the Treasury are hardly confidence-builders for our free-enterprise system.

• Talk of “nationalizing” U.S.’ troubled major banks comes not just from tarnished Democratic Sen. Chris Dodd, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, but also from Republicans like Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and former Fed chief Alan Greenspan.

To be sure, bank shares have plunged along with home prices, and many have inadequate capital. But is nationalization really the only solution for an industry whose main product — loans to consumers and businesses — has expanded by over 5% annually so far this year?

• A stimulus bill laden with huge amounts of spending on pork and special interests is the best our Congress can come up with to get the economy back on track. Economists broadly agree that the legislation has little stimulative power, and in fact will be a drag on economic growth for years to come.

The failure to include any meaningful tax cuts for either individuals or small businesses, the true stimulators of job growth, while throwing hundreds of billions of dollars at profligate state governments and programs — such as $4.2 billion for “neighborhood stabilization activities” and $740 million to help viewers switch from analog to digital TV— has investors shaking their heads.

As always read the whole thing. The chart speaks for itself. Granted, it all started with President Junior’s Stimulus I and Stimulus II bills, but having the most anti-free-market President in the history of the country has cemented the deal.

When Ding Dongs Are Outlawed Only Outlaws Will Have Ding Dongs

Scientists have discovered the secondhand fat is now the leading cause of divorce in the U.S.  And  by “scientists”, I mean a random observation that came to me after staring at the lower cholesterol remnants of Honey Nut Cheerios in front of me.

Powdered doughnut tip to Stop The ACLU for taking a greasy bite out of ABC’s incredibly shallow “reporting” on people being fat based on their proximity to fast food restaurants:

Now stop laughing. I think ABC is serious with this stuff.

ABC unleashed this “news” piece on February 19 with a headline that screams “Living Near Fast Food Ups Stroke Risk” and based it on yet another one of those groundbreaking “studies” that are always touted as “science.” This piece is filled with dire warnings and shocking conclusions… unless you actually read it, that is. Then you find it is really built on conjecture, maybes and assumptions instead of hard proof. So much for science.

All I know is that I get the vapors every time I get on an elevator and someone reeks of McDonald’s french fries.  Or when I go to a restaurant and am forced to smell cooking that is not solely boiled or baked.  I know I speak for all non-fat liberals when I say that all eateries should herd the fatties into their own areas of the restaurants before banning them from being allowed in altogether.  Or within 20 feet of a federal building.  Or inside of  hospitals.

There ought to be a law(tm)!  A Fat Czar.  If anyone ever knew how to cure obesity it’s the czars and Russians.  Then again, I don’t remember much MSM scienticians reporting on anorexia in relation to living near the Ukraine or Siberia.  Seems people got Pulitzers for not taking their shiny journalistic fork to break through the flaky crust of lies in Stalin’s Russia.

First they came for the alcohol but a lot of people got killed by organized crime that exists to this day and it was eventually overturned, then they came for the weed and that’s caused a massive, multi-billion dollar underground tax-free economy, then they came for the cigarettes, then they came for the ding dongs and there was no one left to speak out.

What The Hell Is Wrong With People?

There is some serious mental illness and stupidity out among the population. The Obamessiah more popular than Jesus? Sure, we have fun calling President Hussein everything from Obamessiah to Urkel Christ to a variety of other names, but this poll demonstrates how detached from reality the idiots in the hopey changey crowd actually are.

John Lennon once claimed the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. Now President Obama has evidence that he’s more popular than both.

Obama topped a new Harris interactive poll that asked 2,634 Americans who they admire enough to call a hero.

Jesus came in second on a list that includes God, Mahtma Gandhi and George Washington.

Other historic or notable figures making the top 10 were Martin Luther King Jr., Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Abraham Lincoln, John McCain, John F. Kennedy, U.S. Airways pilot Chesley Sullenberger and Mother Teresa.

Participants named the heroes randomly instead of being shown or read a list of people to choose from. The poll was conducted online between January 12 and 19, 2009.

I have to wonder where Harris interactive found this bucket of losers. Then again, there are 54+ million of them out there. Probably wasn’t too difficult.

The Feds Want To Know Where You Are

I don’t know how I missed this.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Friday rejected his transportation secretary’s suggestion that the administration consider taxing motorists based on how many miles they drive instead of how much gasoline they buy.

“It is not and will not be the policy of the Obama administration,” White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters, when asked for the president’s thoughts about Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood’s suggestion, raised in an interview with The Associated Press a daily earlier.

Gasoline taxes that for nearly half a century have paid for the federal share of highway and bridge construction can no longer be counted on to raise enough money to keep the nation’s transportation system moving, LaHood told the AP.

“We should look at the vehicular miles program where people are actually clocked on the number of miles that they traveled,” the former Illinois Republican lawmaker said in the AP interview.

First of all, when the Obamessiah says that this is “not the policy of the Obama administration” you can bet your ass he’s lying through his teeth. Second, how do you think they plan to do this?

The system would require all cars and trucks be equipped with global satellite positioning technology, a transponder, a clock and other equipment to record how many miles a vehicle was driven, whether it was driven on highways or secondary roads, and even whether it was driven during peak traffic periods or off-peak hours.

The device would tally how much tax motorists owed depending upon their road use. Motorists would pay the amount owed when it was downloaded, probably at gas stations at first, but an alternative eventually would be needed.

It’s unbelieveable what these fuckers are trying to do. They are taking over as much of the private sector as they can. They’re taking over the U.S. Census so they can help ACORN with their Democrat voter fraud from the inside. Now they’re talking about tracking the miles you drive – and more importantly – TRACKING YOU with their GPS device. How much more of your freedom do you idiots want to give up for these thugs? It’s time the hope dopes woke up and smelled the latte.

A Chimp on His Shoulder

Is the Connecticut Chimp a thinly veiled stand-in for our President who I hear is black?

Like the shark rising to the chum, the race huckers are seeing red. You know, like the blood of the former owner of Freddie’s Fashion mart.

At the risk of being cowardly and not engaging in racial dialogue, I’ll only say that if you have a lucrative grievance schtick, you’re likely to play it at every turn. Like they say, if all you have is a hammer, you’re likely to see every problem as a nail.

The shining part of this whole affair? Glad you asked. It’s the Post’s response.

“The cartoon,” said Allan, “is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist.” Allan’s game here—one the Post has often played—is to use Sharpton’s own publicity talents to gleefully generate more press for the Post.

That is about 200% politer than I might have put it. However, I’m glad someone is calling Sharpton out. May this be the beginning of something big.

Socialism Seen Up Close

Oleg Atbashian, the guy who runs The People’s Cube is not only funny, but is also one of the most insightful commentators on the “virtues” of socialism.

This really resonates with me.

Being an immigrant from the former USSR – the land of equally redistributed misery – I used to cringe when Americans complained to me about the perceived misery and lack of opportunity under capitalism. I laughed at American homegrown agitators who were carping on behalf of “communities” about the lack of “economic justice.” They sounded like ignorant, spoiled brats who hated their rich parents for giving them the car of the wrong color. The whiners either didn’t realize how good they had it or they were being deliberately misleading. Either way their message was a fraud.

I had witnessed the stagnation and the collapse of a centralized command economy that, in the absence of the markets, was fueled by the carrot and stick of coercion and stale motivational slogans. I had lived through the hyperinflation, when I had to pay a million rubles to a guy who fixed the rusty refrigerator in my kitchen. I had seen the old country plunge into the chaos of mass unemployment and crime, while it was being robbed to the bone by crooked unelected officials who profited from the corrupt scheme to merge socialism and capitalism – a half-baked brainchild of Clinton’s economists who are now advising Obama.

From someone who knows. Here’s to hoping that his first-hand experiences can reach a few minds.


But Obama managed to convince millions of Americans that they were so destitute and helpless that only a system of government rationing could save them from imminent starvation and homelessness. All of a sudden, previously self-reliant Americans found themselves in the position of neutered house pets, meowing and howling at the prospect of not getting their guaranteed three meals a day.

Opponents of capitalism will tell you that market demand is created, not by necessity, but by sneaky marketing campaigns that generate a false perception of necessity. The same experts have now implemented this perverted theory by running a multimillion-dollar, Madison-Avenue-style marketing campaign, whose goal was to sell to the generally well-off Americans the notion that they were living in misery, poverty, and hopelessness — thus creating a false perception of a need for change.

Oleg, half of us dimwits were already sold on the idea. We just needed the shiny package.

Personally, I cannot understand why Americans don’t wake up and thank God or Providence or whatever for being able to live free. The human condition has always been nasty short and brutish. We are truly fortunate to be living in a society that (mostly) leaves us alone to pursue prosperity and altruism on our own terms.

The Un-Silent Majority Chicago Tea Party

We are not alone.


Karl at The Market Ticker is behind Rick Santelli’s Chicago Tea Party. I’ll drive up to Chicago for that one as well. Just say when, Rick.

While you’re at The Market Ticker, you should definitely read this post.

If you measure “prosperity” by stock prices we’re somewhere back in 1997 or 1998. But if the entirety of these two bubbles were fraud-driven (and they were) then a realistic expectation is that we will not only return to 1995 stock prices (about ~450 on the S&P 500) but we will over-correct significantly because the debt that this fraud created still remains in the economy!

That could easily cut the S&P in half again, which puts my 210 “oh God” print on the table, no?

Let’s be clear here: There is no way out of this box, and the corruption and fraud have permeated every corner of our financial, media and governmental systems.

Read the whole thing or face certain doom.

This Is Your Opportunity, Whitey

In case you missed it, our new Attorney General Eric Holder (who makes Janet Reno look like a genius) pointed out yesterday that we’re a nation of cowards when it comes to race issues.

This is what happens in post-racial-socialist-Amerika. You thought the whole race-baiting thing was over, didn’t you? I didn’t.

“Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards. Though race-related issues continue to occupy a significant portion of our political discussion, and though there remain many unresolved racial issues in this nation, we, average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race.”

Holder continued, “It is an issue we have never been at ease with and given our nation’s history this is in some ways understandable. And yet, if we are to make progress in this area we must feel comfortable enough with one another, and tolerant enough of each other, to have frank conversations about the racial matters that continue to divide us. But we must do more — and we in this room bear a special responsibility. Through its work and through its example this Department of Justice, as long as I am here, must — and will — lead the nation to the ‘new birth of freedom’ so long ago promised by our greatest President. This is our duty and our solemn obligation.”

So, whitey, here is your opportunity. Let’s prove Holder wrong (as if that would be a challenge). Tomorrow, at your office, or even on the street, it is your duty to find a black man or woman and first and foremost, apologize to them for all the wrongs of your white ancestors. This is what Holder means by a “nation of cowards” – we’re supposed to be as obsessed with race as he and his boss are.

So, first, apologize for what your ancestors did, then maybe hand them a 5 or 10 dollar bill. This will help smooth over the racial tension that you didn’t even know existed between you and this person.

This will help us move forward as a country. Or not.

Burris’ Engraving Issues

Maybe it’s a bit premature to finish the great wall of accomplishments on the Burris mausoleum.


The pressure on Burris is literally increasing by the hour, with the latest damaging comments straight from Air Force One, where Robert Gibbs, President Obama’s spokesman said “the people of Illinois deserve to know based on some of the things that have happened over the past few days, deserve to know the full extent of any involvement” by Burris in raising money for Blagojevich, according to a White House pool report.

The again, of all the things to come out of Chicago, audacity is truly the greatest. I expect that he will tough his way through this one as well.

Where Did This Societal Collapse Start?

Very early, according to Woman of Abomination.

It started out innocently enough. Children needed an education after all. It is all in the service of the public good, but a good education also serves the individual. In the beginning, children said their prayers and their pledge of allegiance, and they learned to read and write and understand. We even taught them hygiene and manners. Many went home better off. Once public education became an indelible part of the American fabric we began the real work of divorcing children from their parents and their common sense.

I can tell you so much more about the modern educated person. How he has sacrificed logic and practicality at the hands of “imagination” and “creativity” and dreams of utopias: utopias we have attempted in the past, that he believes will no longer have be accomplished through the destruction of whole populations, because he is more “enlightened”. How he no longer knows how to criticize and scrutinize groups or the government to any great degree, because he is bound by the political correctness they foisted upon him from the time he was young. He’s forgotten how to weigh the question of freedom against his understanding of history and religious philosophy. Because his history has no context beyond it’s relationship to 1968, and he knows religion is verboten in the public sphere unless we’re speaking of how it’s repressive.

Don’t forget hope, WoA.
