The Left and our Liberal friends have been deceiving us for several centuries and it’s caused all sorts of mischief between and among us.

Starting with the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence, America was partly founded based on a self-evident lie, viz., that all men are created equal. They are not. All men are created individually and unequal. Fingerprints, eye pupils, even hair color are different which shows how not equal all men are. Today we must include women in the statement as the meaning of men has come to not include them.
The second lie was repeated by Dr. Martin Luther King as he crusaded for equal rights for all. The good doctor said: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Character not color. All of that is a colossal lie. People are judged many ways including the color of their hair, eyes and the color of their skin. No one can judge people by their character simply because the character of a person is invisible. Even with elaborate testing you cannot find the character of an individual. Impossible and Impossible things cannot be used to judge people despite the words of the queen in Alice in Wonderland who said after Alice said; “one can’t believe impossible things.”
“I daresay you haven’t had much practice,” said the Queen. “When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.” HERE.

How useful is skin color as a means to judge someone? Jesse Jackson told us he will cross a street to avoid a young black male at night. Jessee didn’t marry a woman from a different race. Nothing wrong with Jesse or that.
People need to judge other people to decide whether to stand their ground or retreat. Women need to judge men and a mistake has serious consequences, not the least of which is divorce.
Judgment is needed for security. Judgement is needed to avoid being cheated or robbed. People like Jane Fonda sold out the U.S. by making the GI the bad guy. That was the lie of most of the protests against The Vietnam War. Few people like war because few people like to fight. People naturally want to get along or simply avoid people they don’t like but no one wants to live as a slave. Winston Churchill said it best when he said: “If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves.”
The people in South Vietnam faced slavery or death from the North Vietnamese. Presidents Kennedy and Johnson wanted to help them. Most people would if they could. During Watergate the Vietnam protesters won because President Nixon was too consumed by Watergate to properly fight them and the North Vietnamese. Today Indochina is Communist. The Left including Hanoi Jane Fonda and bigot Meryl Streep adores them because Socialism, (their preference over the freedom needed by capitalism), is the overall system to control people that Hanoi and Meryl love. A pox on them.

America was founded on protests so Americans have an affinity for protests but there are good and bad protests. There are right and wrong protests. Because of the bad and wrong protests against American involvement in the Vietnam war millions were killed that should have lived. The killings are the fault of the American Left protestors who forced America to leave Indochina without defeating the totalitarian governments that came to power because there was no resistance to their power seeking.

One of the best set of circumstances that led to the American defeat and the rise of communist and totalitarian dictatorships is listed by Henry Kissinger in “Years of Upheaval”.
Some might try to diminish Kissinger’s and Nixon’s actions to win the war but they are clearly shown in Years of Upheaval to be the fault of a weakened bargaining position created by the massive protests caused inside America by the enemies of America. People like Jane Fonda ….developing .

Wearing her red cowgirl kiddie halloween costume complete with one of her child-like cowgirl hats, the bizarre Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) reacted to President Donald Trump’s tweet referring to former White House staffer Omarosa Manigault Newman as a “dog,” asking “how dare” the president call a “woman of color” that.

Trump was correct to refer to Omarosa that way. He tweeted: When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn’t work out. Good work by General Kelly for quickly firing that dog!
Maybe he should have called her a black dog to be sure he got Omarosa’s skin color correct.
OTOH, both Omerosa and Wilson can be referred to but not in any accurate way as befitting women of color.

It’s kinda nice that people are not the same. Not only is each person different  but groups are different than other groups. Black NFL players are different than White NFL players and black people have race issues even when they are black and 100% in charge like in Southern Africa. Nelsen Mandela passed away while fighting to end racism but Southern Africa is still seen by the black people there as having too many white people. It’s sad.

Colin Kaepernick will probably never play in the NFL again because of the trouble he caused. Malcolm Jenkins in still playing but because of his leadership over race he’s no longer a fan favorite and he’s annoyed so many fans that the NFL stands to lose  millions more that they didn’t have to lose. 

At the end of the day, ….at the end of the protests, ….yes, they’ll end, . . . because they are a very bad idea, but race won’t go away and some black people will be offended and blame everybody but themselves for their miserable lives.

NOTE: black people who have happy lives aren’t protesting and they don’t want to be rockin’ the boat. Jenkins is, unfortunately, for lots of reasons, still going to be black for the rest of his life.  If he wants to fight for equal treatment on black people by white people, …. maybe the idea is impossible because there’s always going to be black and white people, and many in betweens and people go to their own first. And Jenkins is going to be fighting the rest of his life. . .

Ilana Mercer was born and educated in one of my most favorite places, South Africa. I usually side with both her and Dinesh D’Souza but Mercer claims D’Souza commits such a huge mistake in the premise for his film that serious thinkers should give it no quarter. The film has much to recommend it.  Mercer did spot a serious omission but the film is still well worth viewing.
Both Mercer and D’Souza however fail in the same way. Neither roots America in “Capitalism”. The serious thinker would know the film would be far better if it rested on a proper set of philosophical values but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth watching. Most intellectual endeavors fail to be based on the proper values from Metaphysics, to Epistemology to Ethics and Esthetics. Jefferson failed to include them in the Declaration of Independence so let’s not go around condemning everything that’s not based on a correct philosophy. It’s going to take time before the world follows the correct philosophy. In the meantime we must learn the correct set of values and virtues based on the correct philosophy and live our lives with the knowledge that few will grasp those principles.
It’s not much different today in regards to philosophy than it was about the shape of the earth before is was finally understood to be a sphere.

 A correct philosophy is available. It’s Ayn Rand’s Objectivism but not only is Objectivism relatively unknown it’s also condemned by people who should know better. Objectivism has the burden of requiring a correct philosophy before it can be understood and it has to be well understood before it can be practiced. Get a short Synopsis of Objectivism HERE.
To understand how primitive the human race is so far as philosophy is concerned, consider a correct basis for all knowledge. That’s what metaphysics is supposed to provide but it doesn’t. If it did the human race could move into Epistemology which should be based on a proper metaphysics. Se the problem? Step two requires a correct step one but since most people don’t grasp step one it’s impossible to grasp step two.
So, … back to “America; Imagine A World Without Her”. Since it’s like most things, philosophically flawed it will have to be evelauate on less than perfect philosophy. Better to advise people to learn the correct philosophy but thats a major undertaking. Best to just watch the movie on it’s own merits. It’s well worth the time.

Let’s agree there are two kinds of jobs. Jobs which most people can do and jobs which fewer people can do. Airline pilots, crane operators, business owners, managers are jobs which not everyone can do. If an unqualified person is hired to be a crane operator the mistake will quickly become obvious.
Suppose a poll of crane operators finds black people are under-represented compared to the percent of black people in the overall population. Should government force crane owners to hire incompetent operators?
Only if black people can operate cranes. Is the company guilty of racism because there is an insufficient number of black crane operators?
What about airline pilots? Should airlines be forced to hire a certain percentage of black pilots when there are few black airline pilots? Is the airline racist because it has a lower percentage of black pilots than the percent of blacks in the population? Yes if the thinking of the Left is in control.
How about professors who can teach physics? Math? Spanish? Are schools racist if they have a lower percent of blacks? Yes if the thinking of the Left is in control.
