More Wild Bill for America Insanity: Anti-science

Did IQs just drop sharply while I was away? – Ripley (Aliens, 1986)

Unfortunately, this is a question I ask myself everyday since after the Election.  The more I see how Trump supporters are outing themselves for the misled minions of a mutant Cheeto with a toupee, the more I wonder how far has the national IQ dropped.  People, Idiocracy wasn’t supposed to be  a documentary of what is to come, but rather a funny movie.  No longer is it funny.  It’s depressing because the very aspects of the culture of Idiocracy is becoming more prevalent these days than ever before.  Trumps election to the head seat of the United States just proves how close we are to an Idiocratic dystopia.

I leave you, my wonderful readers, with this example of anti-science rhetoric we will most likely have to deal with for four years.  Buckle up, it’s going to be one hell of a ride!

2016: The Fracturing of the Democratic and Republican Parties

Watching the insanity of Debbie Wasserman-Schultz dealing with the fallout of her comments on Bernie Sanders and the disunity at the RNC last week, what we’re witnessing is (FINALLY) the fracturing of the two parties dominance over American politics.  Since I’ve been politically active I’ve never seen such deep fissures develop within the two major parties.  I celebrate these developing fissures because it finally allows for the seeds of Third Parties to take root and grow through.  So far, it seems that the Libertarian and Green parties may be able to finally develop momentum to progress and start taking seats of power in DC.

With the apparent sabotage of Bernie Sanders campaign by his own party perhaps we can see him break away from the Democratic Party and take up the reigns of another party that is willing to allow him to do his work in the way he wants to. What happened to Bernie Sanders was the act of a party willing to be tyrannical and unfair in its dealings with those whom they don’t agree with.  Bernie Sanders was right from the get go, that the system is rigged and he was the victim of a rigged system within his own party, the Democratic Party.

Ted Cruz, I wonder if he too was the victim of the rigged system within the Republican Party?  It would only make sense for the ascension of that Prince of Clowns Donald Trump.  Ted Cruz has the integrity to not bow down at the feet of Trump like all of the other fools in Jester Trumps court did at the RNC last week.  However, people have called into question the political future of Ted Cruz within the Republican Party.  That should concern Ted Cruz very much and should get the gears turning in his head whether or not he should jump off the sinking Republican ship and find a Third Party lifeboat waiting for him nearby.

As centrist I would rather be having an election between Ted Cruz and Bernie Sanders.  Such an election would make it difficult to figure whom I’ll vote for, but I’d rather have that than having the option of Criminal Hillary or Criminal Trump.  The current two choices just make me want to write in George Carlins name rather than have to vote for the Democrat or Republican criminal.

Yes, I relish the deep fissures within both the Democrat and Republican parties because their power over American politics will begin (hopefully) to wane allowing for a Third Party to take up the challenge of leadership in America.  A true democracy doesn’t have you choosing trash over garbage.  A true democracy allows the trash, garbage and fresh to campaign for leadership.  So let both parties fall apart, don’t try to mend them.  They must understand that they can’t hold power forever and that eventually their tyranny can end allowing a Third Party into DC.

Marxist Ignorance

Religion

This morning I read an article on this website called Socialist Appeal about science and how those of any religion tend to be ignorant of science.  It also speculates that once material wealth is abundant for all that religion would disappear entirely.

The coming socialist revolution will establish universal high-quality education, placing the wondrous power of modern technology at the feet of the people and allowing it to be used according a democratic plan in the interests of all. This revolution will be the negation of all traditional faiths and superstitious rituals, as people voluntarily drift away from these, on the basis of material wealth and security, available for the first time to everyone.

That’s a bold statement to make considering that in most cases becoming religious or spiritual isn’t because a lack of security and/or material wealth, but rather the emptiness produced by being solely reliant on such.  This is one classic example of the ignorance shown by Marxists in general, they believe that once people are “happy”, within a materialistic and superficial paradigm, that religion will disappear.  Well, Christians believed this very same thing when they converted our ancestors from paganism to Christianity, that once the light of Christ entered the souls of the pagan that “happiness” would become more common place in society.  However, with the resurgence of paganism, especially in Iceland a country that should be, by all means in the realm of socialism, “happy”, but somethings missing apparently that Iceland is the first nation in over a thousand years to build a pagan temple to the old Norse Gods. Scandinavian socialism is held in such high regard by socialists in the West, so shouldn’t the Marxist hypothesis be true in this respect?  Seems like the hypothesis is null and void because for a nation to be abundant and accepting enough to allow a pagan temple to be built shows that religion will never die out no matter how much the Marxists want their ideology to be held in sacrosanct.

I’m coming from this as someone highly into the sciences and currently attending college for a Biotechnology degree, so to assume because I believe in multiple Gods doesn’t mean I’m an ignorant simpleton.  In fact, the director of the National Health Institute and leader of the Human Genome Project, Francis Collins, is a Christian, though not a Creationist Christian, but a Christian who believes in Yahweh and Jesus Christ.  I seriously doubt this man would’ve been allowed to conduct such an important project if he were simply a feeble minded, Dark Age mystic.  Another example is my father, another Evolutionist Christian, who most likely has a genius IQ with all the things he DIYed and the problem solving skills shown. However, Marxists would figure him to be a superstitious dolt.

Race
Within much of the Leftist spectrum is a tendency to be shameful of the actions of their ancestors, which is called “white guilt”.  I find this trend to be ridiculous and a sign of a weak mind.  Since Lizzy Borden is my distant relative, should I feel shameful for her acts of violence?  Gods no!  Why would I since I wasn’t even born then?  So it must be asked why white Leftists should shame and induce shameful feelings within other white people about actions they themselves had no hand nor control over? No one should have any shame for what their ancestors did, because there is nothing you can do to change the past.  The past is an immovable mountain, however the present and future is quite malleable.  You affect change now instead of wasting your time feeling guilty for the past that you had no hand in.  One of those discussions we need is the discussion that eliminates the idea of melanin based racial labels and viewing all people as what they really are: The Human Race.  However, Marxists still enjoy dividing people up into small, easily controlled parcels of human beings in order to better control their attempt at social engineering.  It’s the same tactic used by the two major parties in power in America today, the Democrats and Republicans.  In order to keep absolute power the people must be absolutely divided.

Conclusion
I used to be a Marxist years ago and I have no regrets.  After all, it helped me formulate my slight socialist with a libertarian edge ideology.  I consider myself patriotic in regards to my country and I support the Constitution.  It’s perhaps one of the most perfect documents outlining our freedoms these days.  I support the 2nd Amendment to the point where I believe open carry should be allowed.  Though I would prefer a battle axe to a gun, but to each their own.  I support states rights and a decentralized form of government, meaning that the Federal Government interferes as little as possible with what states and their population vote and decide for themselves.  I support gay marriage and gay adoption.  I don’t see anything repulsive about this.   I support Universal Healthcare, which I think can still be decided by states to implement or not without the Federal government. I’m neutral on abortion.  I have my reasons, but I’ll keep them to myself. I believe in absolute religious freedom which extends to businesses as well.  If a business wishes to not patronize a certain group of people, that’s their right.  However, they must not whine about the loss of profits due to their decision.  This of course goes beyond Christian businesses, but also other religiously based businesses such as pagan ones who wouldn’t want to patronize Christians or other monotheists. I’m pro-animal rights and pro-environment, obviously.

That’s just a few things where no one can truly pinpoint my ideology, which I think if anyone follows one ideology to the T, then it’s nothing more than ignorance.  I believe both sides of the political spectrum have something to contribute to our political system.  Whether socialism or capitalism wins out for absolute control of a country it’s simply totalitarianism.

Ferguson Part Deux

So Ferguson is once again a flashpoint endemic of a society that thinks race is something to be held in a place of honor.  Sorry, but I don’t honor the illusion of race, I honor the Gods.  So, if you’re someone who believes is something to be proud of then please leave because this isn’t a blog that thinks race based on the melanin content (or lack thereof) of ones skin is something that should be held in sacrosanct.  I respect ethnic culture, but not race.  There is a vast different between the two.

Now, about Ferguson, even though I’ve never been to protest ever in my life I’m pretty certain throwing frozen water bottles at the police you say you fear is protesting really, but trying to instigate violence.  Ferguson protesters, the 1960’s called and they’re saying you’re protesting wrong! How are you going to say that you fear the police, but yet continue to provoke them, or try to anyway, into violent conflict?  Sorry, but I fear predatory creatures bigger than me so in no way would I provoke a lion or a tiger by throwing stuff at it.  Hel, I wouldn’t even do it if there were a group of people with me, because no matter what someone I call kin will get hurt in the process.  So not only are they trying to provoke the police, they’re being disregarding to the safety of their kin as well. How does that make for a peaceful protest?  How does that honor the slain?  It doesn’t.  It creates more problems than there should be.

I guess time will tell in what way this will all go in Ferguson.  I’m sure, like with everything in this society that relies on blurbs rather than in depth analysis, it’ll fizzle to nothing and on the next ratings inducing “crisis”. Black/White/Human Lives Matter?  Yeah, not really.  Ratings Matter, not the lives of people.  If people really, REALLY cared about others we wouldn’t be reducing ourselves to racial labels and uniting regardless of our melanin content.  If people really cared, there would be a diverse mosaic of people protesting PEACEFULLY (meaning not throwing stuff at police and trying to instigate violence) in Ferguson right now, but there isn’t and that’s absolutely disgraceful.
