Generating an enemy to direct your hate at is the simplest way to gather people around you to help do your dirty deeds. During World War II the military began by training its recruits to hate the enemy. Maybe somewhat counterintuitively, once those soldiers were in the field, familiarity with their opponents made hating harder versus Americans at home who were more readily encouraged by that hate. Training was then switched to focus on the goal of protecting your buddies, which could be translated as leave no American behind. …

Extreme inequality is a class warfare term created by liberals to make nearly everyone feel poor.

Extreme disproportionate wealth only means we are hundreds of times smarter, and eugenically valued than most, so worth every damn cent we have…


White people are programmed. We have known very little about anything but that white is normal, everything else is strange and likely not good. The Constitution gave us the right to be ignorant of others.

The founders hardly liked anyone. They barely gave anyone the right to vote. Property ownership and church affiliation were allowed to be enforced for decades in half the states. Then all white men at some point.

Unfortunately, states' rights was given its power by the Constitution and by association slavery, also protected by capitalism/economics, and slavery's racist future cousins Jim Crow and mass incarceration. We…

Many people are against direct democracy because they fear mob rule and such. That fear is derived from a static idea fallacy; only what democracy was, is what democracy can be. There are no extenuating circumstances where democracy can be more direct than it is, and still be successful. Blah. Blah. Blah. While we have been a republic with democratic elements, or democracy with republican checks and balances, the belief system surrounding these ideas is an 18th century relic.


I wrote a term paper in 1994 about racist speech, after returning to college in my early thirties. It was about my sojourn as a student from 6th in a classroom of 25% people of color in South Bend to a small town in southern Iowa, near Missouri, about 0.25% people of color. What I noticed was a form of speech that removed racist talk in the few times there was someone of color in the room. Most of the whites were not involved in the racist speech, but very nearly all were involved in the allowance of it.

My father had high blood pressure most of his life, took pills in adulthood. Genetic, his dad died at 59. Though I did not inherit. He began jogging in the late 1960s. He said it was a unique experience, since there were no other joggers in South Bend, that he ever saw during that time. Funny thing was the only jogging clothes were white shorts and white t-shirts, was like he was running in his underwear.

I still do some "jogging", slow running, or old people moving. I love it, done since high school, every three days on average, except…


There are people you respect and people you do not, no one should have respected Limpaw. Making an exception because of that kind of person's death makes little sense. Limbaugh was Fox News before Fox News, and made AM radio a terrible place to be with all his progeny.

Larry King was not the greatest person, but he was never vile to huge segments of the country for days and years on end. Limbaugh never sought respect, never gave respect, and never should have earned any respect.

There is no way to change the past, but the forever snuffing out of his future live speaking ability is very welcome. While only one ounce of further harm prevention, I will take it.

I have read a number of books on quantum physics. Nothing terribly, mathematical-equation heavy so I can only give you a rough outline of the physics. However, the history of how the scientists got to the next stage of advances in the quantum realm is enlightening all on its own.

Breakthroughs were often rejected by the dinosaurs. At other times the ah-ha moments never came, it was a research paper a researcher found that was written by someone else, years before. Not many people had heard about it, let alone read, and promoted it, so the idea languished…

Racism is not systemic because I don’t see systemic. I am systemic-blind.

The way black Americans are treated in this country is not any different than a white American caught with a bucket of history, and current data, whitewash.

We will not and cannot pay slavery and Jim Crow reparations because our irresponsible ancestors that created, and allowed these systemic horribles palmed it off on us.
