Today a change of pace as we discuss the fear game.  The game is run like this: the people who run most of the the media in the world, especially the news media, have noticed that more people tune in when there are disasters, even if those disasters aren't happening to the individual consumer of media.  Ever slow down to watch an accident? You and every baboon on the planet does the same, and those in the media know it.

Since disasters don't happen every day, our media sometimes has to get  creative.  After being on the planet for 55 years, you hear catastrophe warnings over and over and over again, on every subject imaginable, and it never, ever stops. Earth getting hit by an asteroid! There was even some stupid movies about it - that and a zillion other disaster films including the incredibly stupid (and awful) '2012.'

Remember Y2K? Millions, no BILLIONS perhaps spent on what?

And when media gets going the hand wringers come out in full force - the no character, easily manipulated and brainwashed.   What it always comes down to - always, is these people know better, and not only that, they are constantly running around telling everyone what to do. Stop eating that, stop doing this, stop buying that, stop listening to that, stop thinking that, we should have a law - and it never, ever stops.

The greatest catastrophe of all time outside of nuclear war is human caused global warming - the so called 'warmists' (can you believe we have names for these people - "warmists" and "deniers" - like a religion!) are like cave men, seeing and hearing thunder and lightening and telling everyone we need to appease the gods by sacrificing a few virgins - or else. Yes, these people know what to do - and when we have thunder and lightening they say, look you didn't sacrifice virgins, or enough virgins anyway...

You see the articles, it's the same nonsense - "97% of climate scientists says"- well if 97% of scientists say we need to sacrifice virgins does that means we start lining them up? Here's what Michael Crichton had to say about 97% of scientists:

"I regard consensus science as an extremely pernicious development that ought to be stopped cold in its tracks. Historically, the claim of consensus has been the first refuge of scoundrels; it is a way to avoid debate by claiming that the matter is already settled. Whenever you hear the consensus of scientists agrees on something or other, reach for your wallet, because you're being had.

Let's be clear: The work of science has nothing whatever to do with consensus. Consensus is the business of politics. Science, on the contrary, requires only one investigator who happens to be right, which means that he or she has results that are verifiable by reference to the real world. In science consensus is irrelevant. What is relevant is reproducible results. The greatest scientists in history are great precisely because they broke with the consensus."

As for the science being settled on human caused global warming (note "human caused" - if Mars is also warming, maybe the fact that it is a bit warmer outside has something to do with that big bright, hot ball in the sky we see every day, and not anything we are doing - after all it has been warmer in the past, and we weren't even around then) that was something made up by a British PR firm. Now, when a scientific theory requires a public relations firm isn't that a bit suspicious? Not to mention all the so called support for human global warming that turned out to be plain wrong, misleading or downright fraudulent - the hockey stick graph, climategate and all the rest.

Because, the point is, that the news media gets more people tuned in and hence more advertising dollars when there is a disaster, and when there isn't a real disaster, well, one has to be made up. Earth shattering asteroids, man eating fungi, man eating bacteria, swine flu, bird flu, marmot plague, anthrax, air pollution, light pollution, water pollution, cancer from cell phones, cancer from high tension wires, exploding homes caused by fracking, cancer from alar (remember that one?), cancer from cyclamates (another blast from the past), prions, global cooling, nuclear winter, race riots, terrorism, right wing terror, left wing terrorism (not so much), this thing that will kill you, that thing that will do the same....

and endlessly the hand wringers on television, on the net, in the streets, on the radio, an endless stream of these no character, chicken littles and boys who cry wolf, sometimes slick as can be, sometimes crude as can be - and they all say we need to listen and do what they say...and they constantly have their hand in our pockets - especially the global warmers who all have money in the game, especially Al Gore, and the environmental groups, some of which have candidly admitted, more or less, that "global warming is a mighty fine way to make some money."

Hand wringers out there - get some common sense - stop with the nonsense already!

Listen to the news the next month or so - I guarantee something new will be added to this list - these people are endlessly inventive - maybe mad cow disease, maybe something else but it is coming!

The Democratic Swindle

Those who still believe that the Democratic party is legitimate should actually visit - or better yet - live in some of the areas where multi-generational poverty is a way of life.  I saw this first hand in the 90's making appearances in Newark, Essex County New Jersey Juvenile Court. It was truly a scene out of Dickens, a decrepit old court room, an elderly judge, children as young as nine being brought up on drug dealing charges (one by selling drugs through the fence of the colloquially named 'Youth House' - itself a place out of Dickens) without any family member appearing for them. I heard the Judge say "where's the grandmother" over and over again. The children? Invariably African American. This in a place where the Democrats have been in power for a hundred years or more.

Or in Paterson, New Jersey, which used to have a rolling crime wave every afternoon when the mostly African American High School got out. Shopkeepers would close their stores, residents knew better than to be on the street - a scene out of the wild west, until a homeless man was killed by a group of students. Now, hordes of police patrol the area every afternoon when school gets out. This, in a place that has been controlled by Democrats, also for at least the last 100 years or so.

The point is this: whatever is being done isn't working, not only is it not working, there isn't any hope of conditions getting better....ever - EVER. There just should not be a group that year after year, decade after decade - for whom no matter how much money is spent - nothing changes except for the worse.  How can we tolerate this, especially when Democrats are using the same tactics on recent immigrants i.e. Latinos?

How does this apply to welfare reform? It's this: Poverty should not be a racial issue, but it is because poverty and dependency seems to be intractable for an outsized part of the African American community - ask yourself: why is it that year after year African American leaders are always calling for more for the poor? And why is it that it NEVER changes, year by year decade by decade. We all expect it now, no one takes notice, it's part of the culture - and no one says anything because we have all been conditioned by Democratic media to keep quiet or face claims of racism. Hunh?

So no one even mentions the statistics about outsized crime rates, poverty rates, dismal educational achievements etc. in an outsized part of the African American community, and the lack of progress, despite billions, if not a trillion spent. Those who say anything are immediately tagged as racists by a Democratic media which - again - has conditioned all of us to remain silent at the risk of career killing racism charges.

Again, this applies to welfare because Democratic leaders have made welfare into a racial issue, equating welfare reform efforts with racism. What's racist, however, is perpetuating year after year a system, a paradigm, a culture or whatever you want to call it, where African Americans continue to have unbelievably high crime rates, dismal poverty rates, high unemployment rates, poor educational achievements etc. And where the people continue to re-elect leaders that every year fail to deliver, who by their continued failures show that they have little or no interest in doing anything other than squeezing every last penny out of the situation for them and their cronies - so that there is now an entire poverty industry dependent on the misery of the community, while retaining as much power as possible.

And yet again - the Democratic media ensures that any critique of the present awful situation is the same as racism, so that nothing changes, even after half a century of program after program, and billion after billion spent. SOMEONE has to point out that it isn't working, that money isn't the answer, that maybe a change of leadership is required. That the present Democratic leadership in the African American community has no interest in the changing the status quo since they get all the votes now, and a change for the better would result in less power, and less money.

In short, where else do you see no political consequences despite decades of failure?

As for other aspects of welfare reform, the Democratic Party has a vested interest in keeping as many people dependent on welfare for as long as possible. The reason is simple - the Democratic Party, historically the party of the KKK, Jim Crow, lynchings and slavery, has transformed itself into the party of government, and the more people dependent on government the more votes Democrats get. Prosperity is not the goal of this corrupt organization. It's as simple as that. And the New York Times, as the standard bearer of the Democratic Party, in a recent article on welfare reform uses its age old tactic of highlighting individual examples as support for their argument against welfare reform - in other words, anecdotal evidence. It's a dishonest way of proving a point, but dishonesty is what Democratic media is all about.

There should be outrage that this one organization and its supporters would ruin lives by the thousand, if not millions, by encouraging dependency, all in an effort to gain power. Why even discuss the cure for poverty and crime, that is, intact families with two parents (and hopefully, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins) all working together.  But, then again, family is an anathema to blood sucking Democrats, who feed off of and encourage shattered families.

Obama Could Do it Better

Ever watch a news story unfold and wonder why no one else sees what you see? Here's an example...

Forget what you have been told about leftist university professors and Democratic Party supporters - the average Democratic voter is characterized by a profound ability to either be manipulated or to be unable to break free from manipulation. Remember when the hypnotist came into your school and got those most susceptible to hypnosis to climb on stage and perform tricks? Now imagine the same thing on a massive scale and you have the Democratic Party's message politics. However, there doesn't appear to be any way to snap your fingers under the nose of these people and show them how they have been played for fools.

Two news stories caught my attention and are relevant to this discussion. The first concerned  Obama. Apparently, Obama, a modest man, is in the habit of telling everyone that, no matter what the job they are doing, he - Obama - could do it better. Whether it be head of the FBI, his campaign manager, or the guy who shampoos the rugs, Obama believes he would be better at it and doesn't hesitate to say so.  (we should remember that when recalling the press conference after Obama's 'shellacking' in November of 2010, when he fled the stage leaving it to Clinton. A very revealing incident).

The second story was about how Obama recycles phrases and even entire speeches. Obama has apparently taken to heart the advice that if you repeat something often enough it will be accepted as truth. Plus, he can rely on the Democratic media to cover for him.

Putting all this together what do have? Answer - George Zimmerman and Trayvon Martin. Obama's campaign is all about doing it just like 2008 - even to the point of using the same campaign speeches. And what speech really galvanized the liberal white and African American voter? The speech delivered after the revelations about Reverend Wright. As unbelievable as this sounds, the Martin/Zimmerman story is being manipulated as a setup for a speech. In that sense it is similar to the reaction to Hurricane Katrina, which was also manipulation on a massive scale, as a response to African American voters taking a look at the Republican Party - remember the black leader in Los Angeles who changed his party affiliation from Democratic to Republican? Katrina was all about that. And the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman story, for all its ironies (for example, if Zimmerman is a "white Latino" then what does that make Obama?) is about one thing, the forthcoming speech on race from Obama. It will be "the speech" and it follows a pattern in 2008.

It is sad indeed how no one has yet caught on to the fact that this is what it is all about - setting up a speech that will generate the same claptrap as in 2008, plus solidifying the African American vote, which is all Obama's anyway. But Obama knows how critical this vote really is, especially since it gives Obama an immunity about certain very uncomfortable issues. So the speech will come, on race, as before, and as before Democrats will cheer and those who are not Democrats will ignore it. But Obama will have accomplished his critical goal of bridging an all important enthusiasm gap, and following his own lead, while he shows everyone what a genius he is. That it is at such a cost in terms of relations between black and white (mostly black to white) means nothing to Obama.

This mean little man, who always thinks he is the smartest, maybe the only real person in the room, could care less about race relations. In that sense he truly represents the Democratic Party, its mean spirit, its arrogance, its overall intent to crush all opposition, no matter what the cost. And in so doing, to destroy a group of people - blacks - who have foolishly aligned themselves to this band of corruption, which has destroyed their community.

After all, with Democrats having taken everything from black Americans - family, safety, prosperity, education, self respect, what is left?
