The Black Family in 1965 and Today

As long as you're looking back, why not look at black statistics from post war to the sixties. Black families were expanding, incomes were growing, educational achievement very rapid. Yes the problem was caused by whites, white liberals, the war on poverty, welfare, affirmative action, destruction of the black schools. Chapman is just another liberal and as such must share responsibility for the destruction of the black family. do you have doubts, look at white welfare ghettos in the US, same thing, same behavior same result.

Marijuana Laws: Going Up in Smoke?

We don't seem to be able to get anything right. Liberals celebrate destructive behaivor, some conservatives and liberals want to make such things not only illegal but impose severe punishment. In the mean time we're filling our jails up with two generation of youths, while the apparatus we've set up to stop drugs is daily intruding on our rights and freedoms. We've empowered gangs and organized crime around the world, turned our border into a war zone, destroyed the judicial systems in several countries, including our own. Could we begin by acknowledging that the war on drugs is a disastrous failure, but that all these drugs are destructive, not to be encouraged, fostered. Start there and maybe we could have an intelligent debate, not just marijuana, but all of them.
We've had amateurs running things for some time, it's that Obama is a whole new low. Many have tried to explain his policy in terms of anti american anti colonialst mind set. While this, by his own admission, is how he sees the world, I think he just wants foreign policy to go away so he can continue to transform America. The latest and next to socializing the medical sector, the most sweeping and dangerous move, is taking over the internet under the Orwellian name, Net Neutrality. Folks are focused on ISIS and the Ukraine, but in the mean time he's turning the US into a fascist state. There is nothing we can do about foreign policy as long as he is in office. We should stop his transformation of the economy, the constitution, the culture. Once we have adults running things, and return to a vibrant economy, we can reassert foreign policy leadership. But we have to figure out what that means in a post cold war environment. We haven't had that debate yet. Now's a good time to have it. Beating up on the Democrats for the chaos in the process.
Was Christ a Christian? So obama isn't an Obamaite, his followers are. He's the original, the first, the collective redeemer. He is who he is but like Jones and so many others using their power over weak people to great advantage, he will be remembered only because of the damage he is doing to the rule of law and freedom. If we lose it all, he may be raised from the dead as a poster. Which is about the right kind of depth.

do you ever read First Things. Here is a longish quote you'll like. ..".liberalism isn't a philosophy or an ideology It is instead a set of well meaning sentiments that are sufficiently vague to allow for pragmatic adjustment when necessary....This flexibility is one reason liberalism has not committed suicide but instead renews itself in every generation as something different yet recognizably liberal and always claiming the moral right to rule. ... Politically, it's a dream of social justice without virtue. Morally it's a dream of virtue without censure. Spiritually, it's a dream of redemption without repentance. " First Things Jan

The confusion is common in the modern world. The dignity of the human person brings with it some 20 centuries of evolved thought about what a person is. Modern individualism just asserts a flabby form of narcissism devoid of inherited thought and wisdom, not part of a family or community. this kind of self absorbed autonomy is what the collectivists build on. There is a difference between a collective and a community. It is no accident that the totalitarians go after religions people and groups, they are individuals but they are rooted in something more important and enduring than the fad, the mob, the false individualism that is an empty illusion created by those who temporarily hold power. .

Marketing works, politics is reality TV. I hope there are spies capturing footage of some of the discussions, that would be rich and would be a best seller. Think about it Hillary, who can you trust?

Is America's Destiny Now Rental Housing?

Like everything it reflects lots of changing reality. The only concern is that some politician might try to use the data to implement some home ownership fostering program. That didn't work out well. People with families buy homes. How about we stop destroying families, don't try to promote them, just look at what policies and programs and attitudes and ideologies are destroying the family, then stop.

It's the natural outgrowth of celebrating abortion. Infanticide will follow. It's utilitarianism and self absorbtion run wild, maltusianism on steroids. Why is it so important to the left? Because individualism derives from the notion that each person has dignity. The collective is based on the sum of the parts and no individual is important. That's why evil always comes as a collective.

Kochs and Unions

The Koch brothers are rare. Most big money goes to K street to buy influence or bend the system in ones favor, limit competition, but with time it gets log rolled into the unintended result of a fascist state. Few democratic contributors, Soros may be the exception, want to see fascism, but that is what it has become. The Kochs are among the few who understand this and promote freedom. That is why the Democrat establishment hates them so, unlike most of their contributors, they do in fact embrace fascism.
