Oh My God – I Was Indoctrinated

We all grew up singing what we thought was a very patriotic song.  But, once you closely examine the lyrics and review the two versions that were ultimately cut from the song, you realize this is an extremely Socialist / Communist propaganda song.

The lyrics for This Land is Your Land were written around 1940.  I don’t say the “song” was written, because Woody Guthrie used an existing melody of the Carter Family’s “When the Worlds on Fire”.

Guthrie wrote his lyric as a slap in the face to Irving Berlin’s “God Bless America”.  The story goes that Guthrie was sick and tired of hearing the song sung all across the country by Kate Smith.  

Guthrie, an aggressive supporter of communism and the Soviet Union, wanted to call his song, “God Blessed America for Me”.  Two of the verses were specifically critical of the United States especially in the area of private property.  He didn’t believe in private property.  He believed everything belonged to everyone.  So, even if you pulled yourself out of object poverty, worked hours upon hours, missed family time and essentially worked yourself to the bone, Guthrie and all of his do-nothing friends were entitled to participate in the fruits of your labor.  They could waltz into your house and sleep in your bed, they could camp out in your backyard, eat your food, and use your utilities.  After all, they were “made for you and me”.  

Guthrie was very anti-war except he fully supported the Soviet invasion of Poland, blasted Franklin Roosevelt for loaning money to Finland so it could defend itself against the Soviets and was critical of the lend lease program to England.  But being the typical hypocrite that Socialists are, he changed to a fully vigorous backing of the US in its fight against the Germans when they attacked the Soviet Union.  And he never served.  Another typical Socialist protocol – demand that the holes be dug but never pick up a shovel to help.  Make sure someone else is doing all the work.  He just sat back singing around the campfires while members of the Greatest Generation were dying to protect his commie idols.  There are versus and versions of the song which are obvious shots at the income inequalities of the Great Depression and post-war periods.

And here we were, young, very impressionable grammar / primary school children, idolizing our teachers and following their lead.  We forget we grew up in the era of the Vietnam War and most of these young teachers were probably war protestors on the weekend and Socialists when ever it suited their needs.  So, when these protest songs and Socialist songs became part of our Music Class curriculum, we put out heads back and sang at the top of our lungs.  

Recently, some of our more liberal leaning entertainers started incorporating the verses critical of the United States and private property back into their performances.  It’s astonishing that these very same performers, basking in the freedoms that are the United States, bash it every chance they get.  I wonder, when was last time these super rich entertainers shared the fruits of their labor like the true Socialists they dream to be.  

In 2002 the Library of Congress chose the song as one of fifty to be added to the National Recording Registry.

I think this anti-American, Socialist song should be removed from that registry.

Parents Speaking Out at School Board Meetings are Domestic Terrorists

What??? !!!! Today, October 5th, 2021, there is talk about getting the United States Department of Justice, a Federal Agency, involved in local school board meetings. That, in and of itself, is not allowed by Federal Law. But, let’s put that aside for a moment.

School Board members are complaining parents are threatening them with bodily harm, following them home from meetings and harassing them, standing outside their homes and scaring their children. They don’t like parents challenging the decisions they make on curriculum and health and safety protocols.

Frankly, I agree. Those are illegal activities. I refer to harassment and threat of physical harm. But, they are not items for the Feds to be involved in. Those are local crimes to be investigated, processed and prosecuted by local law enforcement authorities. But, let’s put that aside too.

The two critical issues facing school boards today are masking kids while they are in school and the attempted assimilation of our children into a Marxist / socialist mindset via the application of Critical Race Theory. Trying to teach kids, especially white kids, that they bare the sins of white bigots who they were not related to nor even knew. Trying to teach kids of color that they are inferior to white kids and therefore need exemptions to school discipline rules and grading because they don’t have the intelligence to keep up nor the moral and ethical ability to follow rules. Trying to convince parents that treating children equally is racist and that children need to be treated with equity is infuriating.

Parents, of all races, have had enough. And, their recourse is to present their concerns and opposition to such policies at school board meetings. Is anything I’ve written so far false? Please point it out. I’ll save you time and effort. It’s not false and it’s not a political slant. That’s what’s going on.

Parents are so frustrated, so at the end of their wits, feeling so helpless that they have to take a stand and sometimes these board members are so entitled, so “above the parents” and so insistent in their cultural Marxist leaning that personal threats are the only way to make it clear this needs to stop.

I believe there is NO place for personal threats, harassment, and confrontations outside the meeting room. However……

Similar to regular politicians, school boards are voted in to represent the desires of PARENTS as to the curriculum taught to their children. As such, warning a board member to either do what the parents want or, “I’ll do everything I can to get you voted out” is not a threat of domestic terrorism. It is a statement of cause and effect leading to a voting preference. Is voting now an act of terrorism?? If I don’t vote to keep you in office, is disagreeing with a school board something I should be arrested for??

No, but the attempt to silence parents with arrest when they speak out at school board meetings IS terrorism. It’s political terrorism. You know, similar to what they do in Marxist / Socialist / Communist countries.

AFFINITY GROUPS – Your Child is NOT Invited

Woke, anti-racist (well, they actually are racist – against whites), and critical race theory advocates are pushing, and pushing quite hard, for affinity groups.

Essentially, these are groups who gather, in assigned areas usually in a school setting, to discuss their shared experiences in a White man’s world full of oppression, social injustice, and racist culture. These are alleged to be “healing spaces” for BIPOC and Asian American students. BIPOC is a woke acronym for Black, Indigenous, People of Color. These safe spaces are for all students of color but NOT for students who identify only as White.

The woke, anti-racist, critical race theory advocates scream for diversity yet they seek to specifically divide up the student population into segregated cultural groups. Essentially, this is in violation of federal law including Brown v. the Board of Education.

These advocates scream for inclusion yet the Asian group excludes all others, the Black group excludes all others, the Hispanic group excludes all others, etc etc. Except the White group. There is no White group. The White kids are not allowed to have their own group.

These advocates scream for equity. I guess this is one of their equity goals: to have all students feel safe, warm and fuzzy as long as they are doing so within their own cultural groups. Except the White kids. They are supposed to feel left out.

Part of this advocacy centers on trying to “right” the “wrongs of the past”. But, considering a 5 year old White kindergarten child doesn’t have much of a past, I wonder why this child is being singled out to be essentially ostracized, made to feel guilty, made to feel his skin color is not equal to his class mates, made to feel like she is the cause of all of her friend’s sadness. DISGUSTING !!!!

Do White kids essentially have the “original sin” of their ancestors? How about the White kids of Irish descent whose ancestors were brutally oppressed in the late 1800s and early 1900s. How about all the Jews, Italians, Poles, etc etc – all of White skin who were made to feel inferior, left out, and rejected when they came to this country??

Affinity Groups are racist, divisive, segregational, and, frankly, criminal.

NY Board of Regents Are Racists

On Wednesday, August 25th, 2021, the NY Board of Education / NY Board of Regents instituted the following protocol / mandate.

“The Board of Regents launched an initiative to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in schools across the New York State. (it actually reads “across the”) The Board expects that all school districts will develop policies that advance diversity, equity and inclusion – and that they implement such policies with fidelity and urgency.”

This is an aggressive racist, divisive, prejudiced, and discriminatory attack on white children. Let’s look at their three prong attack one at a time.

DIVERSITY – Brown v. The Board of Education solved that decades ago. It had to do with desegregating school districts. Here, the NY Board of Regents is suggesting schools in NY are still segregated. Further, they suggest schools should be busing in children of other races, creeds, colors, etc until there is an equal distribution of all races throughout the district. Essentially, an impossibility. What are you going to do if a district is 100% black, or 100% white, or 100% Hispanic? NY school districts are based upon residency. That is, if you live in Make-believe City, you go to Make-believe public schools unless your parents pay to have you go to private school. Make-believe public schools are funded by the tax base. For the district to be diverse it has to determine how many, based on percentage, of each race there is throughout the state and then go bus enough kids from each race to a particular district until there is “diversity”. So, do YOU want your children being bused all over the state until a particular district has it equal percentage of x race children?? Does a member of the Shinicock Nation in Southampton want their child bused to Rochester because they don’t have any Native Americans there? Does a black parent in Central Islip want their child bused to Southampton because the Shinicock Nation is short a few black students to balance out their ratio? I’ll make this simpler. Let’s say X District is 50% white, 20% Asian, 10% Indian (from India), 15% black, and 5% Hispanic. What happens if the school is 25% white (because the white population is older and their kids are already in college)? Does the district have to kick out certain races and cherry pick white kids from other districts to make their school “diverse”???? ASININE !!!!

EQUITY – note the word is not “equality”. The difference, at first, doesn’t seem important but it is massively important. Equal means you treat all children, regardless of race, creed, religion, sex, etc., the same. You treat them equally. Equity means you “make” all children equal by treating some better than others. And, since it is always the white child that all others need to be equal to, the white child is discriminated against in the school. And, how insulting is this for parents of non-white students. The NY Board of Regents is insinuating your child is of a lesser educational quality than a white child and needs special treatment to catch up to that white child. ASININE !!!!

INCLUSION – quite a joke. It actually allows “safe zones” where children of a particular race can congregate to discuss their shared experiences. Unless your’e white. If you’re white and you congregate, you’re a racist mob. All this does is DIVIDE the kids. Inclusion means all kids share a similar school culture. They have to “assimilate” to the shared experiences and practices of the group as a whole single unit not go off to their separate corners to remain different. Where’s the inclusion?? ASININE !!!!

The New York Board of Regents is practicing Critical Race Theory and shoving it down districts throats. Critical Race Theory strives to show that school districts are systematically racist. They are designed to advance the white student only. It strives to show students must maintain their individual identity categories and not adopt nor assimilate into American culture because American culture is racist and designed to advance the white person only. (So much for the “great melting pot”.) It strives to show that white children have a premium by being white. White kids are premium gas but your kid is simply unleaded. Wow. It strives to wipe out testing metrics, benchmarks and standardized tests because students who are not white are not smart enough to pass them. It strives to follow the current woke culture desire for us all to end up in the same place even if we didn’t work for it nor deserve it.

You, especially if you’re a parent of a child in school, have to stand up and voice your opposition to this racist educational mandate.

ARIZONA GOP DEMANDS ACCESS TO MARICOPA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPARTMENT SYSTEM, DATA, AND PASSWORDS FOR THEIR VOTER BALLOT AUDIT

So, this is what we got….. The Arizona GOP, in the “course of its audit” OF AN ELECTION is seeking data from the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. It wants this data sent to their “independent auditor”. Why does it need information regarding ongoing investigations; interactions with other law enforcement agencies; access to equipment and passwords – let me emphasize that for clarity, PASSWORDS. Sounds rather Nazi Regime-like to me.

We should wonder – what do LAW ENFORCEMENT RECORDS have to do with a ballot audit? Is the GOP worried that former felons were voting? Perhaps. Even if true, I wonder how many actual former felons actually voted or tried to vote. Let’s be generous – 100?? Wow, there’s the smoking gun we’ve all be looking for. Let’s review Biden: $1, 027,269 and Trump 980,494. Let’s take away those 100 from Biden, I’ll even go better, take them from Biden and give them to Trump. Guess what, TRUMP STILL GETS HIS ASS KICKED.


What should I and all the rest of you be afraid of? First of all, although my record is spotless, I have occasion to have interacted with Deputy Sheriffs over the past 17 years. All have been great encounters but my name is in the system as a complainant for a variety of reasons: locating 4 escaped prisoners from a van and reporting it; calling on behalf of an abused neighbor; finding a 2 year old toddler in an empty parking lot; assisting in a DWI arrest on the highway, etc. The point is now anyone who was on the adverse side of those complaints now has my personal information. Now, how about those less fortunate citizens who were on the wrong side of a 911 call. Now their “personal issues” are exposed to the public for gawking and criticism.


For all you GOP stalwarts who are big into privacy issues and “keep the government out of my business”, you need to now stand up and say something. Otherwise, you’re just full of shit.

BONE SPURS RUN IN THE FAMILY

On Wednesday, January 6th, 2021, I too was monitoring the various news stations waiting to see what the “mass of Trump supporters” were going to do. At first, I was pretty impressed with how they were actually behaving rather civil. I have no problem with “rallies”, flag waving and enthusiastic chants (propaganda speeches). I was, however, chuckling to myself when the fallen-from-grace-trying-to-figure-out-to-remain-relevant Rudolph Giuliani shouted out “Trial by combat”. Wow, for someone who had raised his hand and practiced American Law for decades, forgetting about trial by jury was stunning.

My biggest scornful laugh came when the 1st Duffous-in-Son, Donald Jr., shouted out, in a warning to fellow Republicans at the Capital, “We’re coming for you.” That statement in and of itself is a joke. That pussy piece of shit couldn’t fight his way out of a wet bag.

We’ll get back to Donny-Boy in just a minute.

Fast forward to the crowd attacking federal and city police and hearing various chants threatening bodily harm at all levels it was clear some people may indeed have been crazed enough to die for their hero, Donald Trump. Psychologists will be picking apart that phenomenon for centuries to come. In similar fashion we are boggled to explain how millions could have followed Hitler like he was a god. Maybe they were afraid of what others would think of them if they voiced their real thoughts. Maybe they have such weak mental constitutions they just do what everyone else is doing. Maybe they are so stupid they simply believe anything someone tells them. Maybe they truly believed (albeit based on being flooded with lies and false information for four years) that their country was under attack from the inside. Maybe they fell victim to falling for one of the best propaganda machines since 1930’s Germany. Maybe they are social outcastes who found a common cause. Maybe they are financially crushed and looking for an excuse other than the bad choices they made in life. Maybe they are tricked by a well placed quote, detail or anecdote. Maybe they truly accepted the frustrations of being victimized by their fellow Conservatives and honestly thought, based on Trump’s allegations, that the swamp was going be drained. Maybe they feel blind loyalty will yield some kind of reward. Some people just need something to die for (but, really, die for Donald Trump????).

Well, I know one person who wasn’t willing to die. I know one person who was too cowardly to join the crowd marching in protest and then attacking the building. I know one person who obviously doesn’t believe in Donald Trump. Donald Trump, Jr. While all the brain dead zombies were making history (not the good kind at all), that coward was hiding under his daddy’s desk.

Maybe he just has bone spurs. (Oh, by the way Donny Boy, it looks like we’re coming for you.)

(Corrected) The Clerks Who Saved a Country

While our Country’s Capital building was under attack, while Senators were fleeing for safety, while Congressmen and Congresswomen were being shuffled under back stairs, while Vice President Pence was being wicked away by the Secret Service, a tiny group of young, far underpaid Congressional Clerks saved our Democracy.

How?

They simply turned around in the fleeing calamity, ran back into the chambers as the crowds were breaking through the doors and secured the mahogoney casks containing the Electoral Votes and took them out to safety.

Today, they remain anonymous. No one is talking about them. No one has said, “Hey, that was my staff member”. But, it won’t be long until History demands to know their identity.

This small group of government employees saved a country. They saved democracy. They saved the United States of America. This small group of government employees are worthy and deserved of the Medal of Freedom.

Some Things Can’t Be Ignored

I was referred to an editorial, well – advertisement is a more accurate description, by a journalist employed by one of NY’s papers. The journalist is explaining why he voted for Trump in 2016 and why he is going to vote for him again next week.

Firstly, anything from the the paper in question will be suspect for some time now considering the horrendously embarrassing “scoop” they received on the Hunter Biden lap top story. A story so bad even William Barr didn’t touch it. A story so bad not one GOP ass licker chased it. A story quickly shown to be a desperate attempt by Trump to throw shit up against to the wall to see if it would stick. It fell right off. Towards the end of his editorial he is almost whining about how his employer’s 1st Amendment Rights were squashed when all other journalist outlets showed it was a joke. If he was so concerned about his employer’s position why hasn’t the employer done anything since? Don’t worry, Rudy’s on the job. He’ll fix it for you.

Now, let’s get into the editorial.

We can skip over all the garbage regarding the 2016 Election other than to point out, if you read what he writes closely, he makes it clear he didn’t “vote for Trump”, he cast an anti-Hillary vote. So did a lot of other people. So what.

He goes on to admit Trump has a questionable background and complete lack of experience. He was hoping for something better but, “Four years later, everything has changed, not all of it for the better.” Frankly, I’m waiting to read exactly what he feels is indeed better. (Crickets)

He claims Trump has produced peace and prosperity. We should be able to stop right there because neither of those two things happened. Trump hasn’t done one single thing to promote peace. He has simply been very lucky that nothing has happened during the first four years on his watch.

He claims Trump’s most admirable trait is that he has kept his promises. I struggle to find any single one to which he refers. If it’s building the wall and making Mexico pay for it, well, that’s easy. Mexico didn’t pay for anything. And, the wall, what ever version of “a wall” you believe in, didn’t get completed. If he refers to clearing out the swamp, we’ll it’s very clear all he did was bring in all his yes men and women and weakened the country on the whole by putting people lacking in any type of experience into roles that clearly have no clue about. If he refers to the big tax break, well, sure you got your pitiful “tax stimulus check” but you lost a bunch of great tax write offs. A) you essentially either broke even or are now paying more on April 17th, and, B) that goes away after 5 years. So, essentially, you’re screwed. If he was referring to all the jobs he was going to bring back to the country, that fell flat on it’s face. Period. I guess I could look up all of Trump’s “promises” and then pick them apart one by one but I’ve already made my point.

While I agree eliminating regulations and cutting taxes sounds good, all we now get is more polluted water and more polluted air. Regulations have been put in place to control big businesses from placing profits above the lives of the public. I’ve already covered the cutting taxes farce.

Regarding Iran, nothing new there. Every president since Reagan has been putting pressure on Iran. We can just skip over that segment.

Getting other countries to pay more for NATO was, indeed, a good thing. Making the country a laughing stock; having other world leaders literally laughing behind Trump’s back during a major meeting of world leaders (all caught on camera); leaving us in a position where no one trusts us; and outright demolishing the reputation the US had as a world leader is nothing to be proud about.

His discussion on China fails to mention Trump’s family’s business connections there; the fact that all of his threatened sanctions and tariffs never materialized; and his failure to contain their aggressive positions in the South China Sea and most of South East Asia makes it clear Trump has no policy for responding to same.

Regarding the corona virus, you heard it with your own two ears. Trump admitting on tape he knew how dangerous it was and he held back cautions to the public. Why, because “he didn’t want to cause a panic”. What panic is that? On Wall Street? Was Trump afraid the one and only good thing going on would crash too? He lied to the public. He endangered lives and some may have lost their life because of him. And, that IS the point. As far as a rapid progress on a vaccine is concerned, there is nothing rapid about it. We should hope not. We don’t need some hastily developed medicine that could injure us in other ways.

He states an “honest score card must also include the disparities in the states’ performances”. Hmm, well, that score card will also Trump lied about everything to do with the virus, was giving out bad information and making ridiculous suggestions while criticizing the science, scientists and experts all of tried to protect us. Indeed there were fatal flaws. But they resulted from the poor performance of Trump.

The rest of his advertisement is really just the same old arguments we hear day after day. Nothing more than cry baby retorts about protecting one of most failing presidencies in American history.

Perhaps the kicker is the last two paragraphs in the editorial, and I quote the author direct,

“Thus, the election is not just Trump vs. Biden. It’s also America vs. The New York Times.” And, that’s what this was really all about. Trying to have the employer’s paper stand toe to toe with the NY Times. He loses that one every day of the week. He says it’s not just Trump vs. Biden. Here I agree. I’ll quote Biden on this one: “The character of the country is on the ballot.  Our character is on the ballot.” 

Vote for America. Indeed.

What is Trump’s Real Motive – Covid-19

Over the past few days Trump and some of his lesser intelligent staff members at the White House have been touting “herd immunity” as the answer to Covid-19. I should remind you that every solution presented by Trump and his lesser intelligent staff members at the White House have 1. quickly been proven as false information by the science community and 2. never worked. (Which leaves one to wonder why anyone with half a brain would either try what they recommend or pass it on to friends and loved ones as good information.)

So, let’s stop here for a moment as I would encourage all those who do support Trump’s claims for herd immunity to stop reading this blog post, go to the internet and look up three sources of information on herd immunity. Otherwise, your ability to comprehend this post, written at a third grade reading level (the reading level this writer) will be too much for you.

The next question is why would Trump push information that is blatantly false and would end up getting hundreds of thousands of people infected?

Is he desperately grasping at straws as the election moves closer and everyone clearly sees he did practically nothing to protect the country? Maybe, I guess one could argue he’s making suggestions as if he is in a brain storming session and just throwing out everything he can think of (well, he’s really not coming up with these suggestions anyway) hoping something will work. Frankly, that’s giving him too much credit.

Is he hoping that voter turn out will be suppressed by hundreds of thousands of new infections? Maybe, but that will backfire in his face because most moderates and Democrats wear masks and otherwise try to comply with CDC recommendations so it’s only his core, Qanon followers, and other mental incompetents that will get sick.

Is he trying to make the general population as cash strapped and in debt as he is by exposing it to massive amounts of uninsured medical bills and budget crushing prescription costs (think of all his attacks on the Affordable Care Act)? That’s rather sinister but a likely result. But, then again which segment of the population would suffer the most? (See paragraph above.)

Is he trying to weaken the population so it can’t defend itself from a foreign invasion? Highly unlikely. Not a very good military strategy.

Is he trying to weaken Democrats and moderates so they can’t physically remove him from office should he decide not to accept the election results and turn his “Proud Boys” loose on the American public? Again, really not a good strategy because it is clear he’ll be removed by Federal Marshalls and see three paragraphs above.

Well, I’m at a loss. I can’t really say why Trump would ever continue to press a health strategy that, well, isn’t a health strategy at all.

News So Fake Even the Trumpkins Knew It Was a Lie

So, when was the last time the NY Post broke a huge, I mean election changing huge, story?? I’ll make it easy for you – NEVER.

I guess I am not the only one who immediately knew their front page story about Hunter Biden’s emails with the Russians was a complete farse. Fortunatley, we have a free press cored with investigative journalists. They proved today they are so important to a democracy…… so important to THIS democracy. Even Fox News was extremely hesitant to report on this “October Surpirse”.

If your first question wasn’t why did the computer repair guy pass the information onto Rudy Guliani rather than the F.B.I., then perhaps you need a refresher on philosphical ethics, morals, and logic. Come on !!!!!!

Another fortunate event in this whole mess what the fact that the computer repair guy folded so easily. Obviously, not being a good liar, he couldn’t even get his own story facts straight and was, literally, sweating so much he probably lost 3 pounds during the interview with the throng of journalists who knew his story was bullshit from the get go.

We’re coming down to the wire on this election. It doesn’t matter who your guy is. CHECK THE FACTS !!!!!!!
