Musings



Sometimes I have to resort to reading what the "best and brightest experts in some areas of life" said, in order to keep everything in its place. Academia (above) is clearly not the place to look for real answers.Neither is the mainstream media - depicted as the small dog. The larger dog (a metaphor only) is Barack Hussein Obama.


The MAINSTREAM MEDIA

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes the greatest enemy of the State." (Dr. Joseph Goebbels)

"Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise." (Adolf Hitler)

The democratic process that brought the current US administration to power--

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote! (Benjamin Franklin)

“Civility in the face of evil is no virtue; rage in the face of nihilism is no vice.”(Lindsay Perigo)

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS

Political Correctness Defined - A doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical socialist minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous non-enquiring media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

RIGHTS

"If you will not fight for your rights when you can easily win without bloodshed -- if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly -- then you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small 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." (Winston Churchill)

AN ARMED SOCIETY

"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes....Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." (Thomas Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774-1776, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in Chapter 40 of "On Crimes and Punishment", 1764.)

Excellent, LL. I wish your writings and musings could be published to the masses.

Your musings are quite interesting!
I know that the MSM today are hiding the TRUTH in order to manipulate citizens for just the right amount of time so Dear Leader and his comrades are able to achieve their goals, or end result. I liked the Churchill quote. Admittedly, I need to read up on more of history but with the little I do know, if we ignore the past, we are doomed to repeat it.
I believe that we must continue to fight against the Tyranny being forced upon us. I wish I knew of a specific way that we could stop this horror reality flic from happening.

My favorite quote was

Civility in the face of evil is no virtue. That applies today only TOO well.

The heading graphic could be titled, "Karl Marx and his 5 man Jazz Quartet."

Media seems to be in trouble these days. Every day brings a little more bad news for them.

I've been at the bitten end of Academia more times that I wish to recall.

I like learning, I like higher education, but does it need to be so uniformly dogmatic? That it pawns itself off as "open and accepting," which in truth it has as narrow boundaries of acceptance as anything else, is what's so galling.

But like all institutions it has its mazes designed to keep people out, and shut those in, in as prisoners until and if they find their way out.

Political correctness. Don't get me started. These are my neighbors, the very people who think nothing of attacking me to explain The Hubs's deployment as I am taking out the trash bins on a hot day.
