Allen High School Spends $60 Million on a New Stadium: The truth about school sports

with 7 comments

Keep in mind before I say what will surely infuriate many that I spent much of my previous Friday evening listening to the pre-season football game between my favorite NFL team The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Miami Dolphins. I enjoy the combat of a football game. I understand the drama of sporting events. I have known, and currently know many people who memorize sports stats and pour a lot of personal time and energy into sports as their premier entertainment. I know many people who spend their Friday nights going to football games for their local high school in the fall; have block parties in their cul-de-sacs on Saturdays when Ohio State plays Michigan, then tail gate on Sunday down at Paul Brown Stadium for The Cincinnati Bengals. These same people will rattle off statistics of sport players with great conviction, but couldn’t begin to tell you who Rob Portman is–the State of Ohio Senator who has been a potential candidate for Vice-President of The United States. They drink a lot, and take great pride in losing their senses to drunkenness, and in spite of those human faults, I still enjoy the fanfare of sports.

In Texas, as displayed to the outside world quite wonderfully in the film Friday Night Lights, high school football is the centerpiece of small town entertainment, and it does bond the community together in ways that defy logic. I could write books on why this is destructive in that it shows a tendency toward collectivism that is ultimately disparaging, but for the sake of simplicity, let’s just say that small town politics in the state of Texas loves their Friday night football. It’s an obsession really, so much so that tax payers in Allen, Texas passed a bond package with 63.66 percent of the vote from the booming suburb of north Dallas worth $119.4 million dollars, $60 million of which was designated to building a state-of-the-art stadium for their high school football team.

For the kids who play football in Allen they will play under the Friday Night Lights for their community in a stadium that rivals what many of the stadiums for professional teams play in. 8,252 people signed up for season tickets ranging in price from $40 dollars a game to $8 and they plan to sell out several of their games in the 18,000 seat arena in a town that has a population of 84,236, which is smaller than the Lakota School District in Cincinnati. The demand for football in Allen is so intense that 1 out of every 4 people plan to attend football games at the new stadium.

The residents of Allen have a median household income of $100,843, which is about $10,000 more than the wealthy area of Lakota due in large part to all the businesses that are locating to the area because of Texas pro-business attitudes. Many of the jobs that aren’t in your town because of intense regulation and high taxes are probably in Texas or thinking about it currently. And when people have plenty of money in their pocket they tend to be generous by passing tax increases on themselves without a thought of future sustainability. The people of Allen have the money and they wish to spend it on a football stadium for their local high school, and that’s that. This has led to severe criticism from people outside of Allen who don’t understand why the people of that Texas town will spend so much money on a football stadium when the state of education is so poor in America. Well, the answer is rather harsh, but must be understood in order to be truthful about the real nature of support a community has for their local schools when discussions of tax increases arise. People like to watch violence and mayhem. They love to see gladiators on the battlefield punishing other players in a quest to score a point. Those same audiences do not show up to watch some kid take a math test.

All public schools and all large college campuses use their sports programs to drive their funding models for their education institutions. “Jocks” are treated as special in schools because the school acknowledges the gladiators as the life blood of their existence. Without the Friday Night Lights, without football, schools are boring places of history, art, math and science. Only a few kids in each grade class excel in those categories and go on to become esteemed world-wide scientists or mathematicians. Most parents would rather give birth to the next Payton Manning rather than Albert Einstein and it shows in schools by what parents support. In Allen, Taxes they are just being honest about their priorities. They are not functioning from illusion. When it comes down to it, people do not care about educating a bunch of inner city kids on how to bake a cake in home economics. They don’t care if a 1000 nerds score a perfect 2400 on their SAT scores. But they do care if a kid is 6-4 and weighs 280 pounds in his junior year and can play as a guard on the offensive line protecting the team quarterback. In essence, they care about their own entertainment on a Friday Night, because once the game is over, they are back to their own lives looking forward to the next game.

On a typical Saturday during football season most men will sift through the political section of a newspaper and read intently the sports stats from the game on Friday. On Monday morning he will be able to go into his workplace and impress his co-workers with his vast knowledge about the tackles that 6’, 4” 280 pound kid had in Friday’s football game. He might even claim to know the boy’s father hoping that such a revelation will impress his co-workers with is access to celebrity. But nobody sits around the water cooler talking about how a kid from their public school won a spelling competition, or won an academic scholarship to Yale due to academic excellence in high school physics.

Schools are very aware of this leverage they have over the community. Locally, around the Cincinnati area the closest thing we have to the Texas Friday Night Lights experience is Colerain Football. Already, the band leaders in that town are letting it be known that if residents don’t pass a school levy this November that there will be cuts to the football program, and the band that plays for them. They know as school officials that the community cares about sports, but not about the positions of assistant art teachers, so the threat is directed and quite intentional. At Lakota in my home district, after three failed levies, the district cut off its nose to spite its face threatening to hurt the parents of the district by charging players $550 per sport for each player in order to force levy passage which has ended up backfiring. Lakota isn’t Allen, Texas; people are more indifferent to their Friday Night Football. If it’s there, fine, if not, they’ll go to a movie and out to dinner instead. The only parents who really feel passionate about football like they do in Texas are the parents who are hoping their kid wins a scholarship to college which will save them tens of thousands of dollars in college tuition. Lakota took bad advice from the classes the school board attended at Levy University in Columbus, Ohio that the OSBA puts on every year. In that class they learned that to pass tax increases that public transportation and sports are what motivate voters to throw more money at a public school. If those things don’t work, then nothing will. At Lakota, to make up for picking the wrong strategy in winning the hearts of the community, they have had to spend $160,000 on public relations to attempt to win back community support, which they won’t get as long as 1500 kids are being charged $550 to play sports.

Penn State covered up the sex crimes they all knew about because they understood that it was Penn State Football that drove new enrollment, and therefore revenue to their university. It is sports that drive education, not academics. In Allen, Texas at least they aren’t trying to deceive themselves in being so high-brow to not wish for the blood lust of violent impacts under the Friday Night Lights of their new $60 million dollar stadium. Nobody really cares about “education.” This is well-known, it’s just not publicly acknowledged. The people of Allen are not going to pour $60 million dollars into a program to help the poor and needy. They are not going to give it to a bunch of fools who want to build solar panels and wind mills. They are not going to give it to a bunch of socialist teachers who want to save the world with world peace. In polite conversation the tax payers will utter support for such things, but when it comes time to put their money where their mouth is, they spend it on blood, broken bones, and drama on a fourth and goal. Everything else is a waste of time and that is the key to the education funding structure. Without the Friday Night Lights, public education is just another stale experience that could easily be replaced with online classes.

Jerry Sandusky Trial: The pain of doing the right thing

with 6 comments

Over the years I have gotten into a lot of trouble righting wrongs that in my view were pure evil. Sometimes in these conflicts the other side does not survive the worst case scenarios and sometimes the decimation of the wrong doer’s public persona is worse than death to them, because they care so much what others think. Sometimes the wrong doers are single advocates of terror, and sometimes the terrorist is a large organization. But as I reflect back on my life at this moment I can honestly say that even with all the pain it’s caused, with all the conflict, with all the broken hearts that follow—I am proud to have never turned away from a situation like Mike McQueary did when he walked in on Jerry Sandusky raping a young boy in a shower. McQueary did what the law says you should do, and that is report the incident to a higher authority. The trouble is, when our world is laced with massive amounts of self-serving corruption, and weaklings of spirit, such authority cannot be trusted. No, in reality by the rules of the human race, McQueary had an obligation to that little boy to save him from the domination of a much older man—but he didn’t. He took the weak way out and left the responsibility of justice to the mob of collective campus politics where it was swept under the rug at Penn State.

Of all the adults I know, most talk tough one on one over lunch, or at the local pub, but when it comes to action, they are often afraid to act on their knowledge of justice just as McQueary did. Only Darryl Parks at 700 WLW seems to have as much conviction over the Jerry Sandusky trial as I do. I believe what Darryl says in this broadcast seen below from his Saturday show because Darryl has taken a similar stand on school levies, which exploit children to pad the pockets of public employees, and he often goes on bold crusades against wrong doers calling them out by name on the 50,000 watt flamethrower known all over the Eastern United States as the Big One. He does those things because often it’s the right thing to do, and these days very few people feel secure enough with themselves to take a stand of any kind. And this has led to the kind of evil that occurred at Penn State for a very long time where hundreds, probably thousands turned away from justice in blind servitude to the might of Penn State as an institution. Listen to what Darryl has to say on the matter.

Right now, there are children who are desperately looking for adults to emulate, to show them that becoming a man or a woman is not a cheap suit of depravity. When a child is being abused and it is well known, yet good people turn away from the situation then evil is allowed to rule and goodness has lost. It does not matter if it is a beloved sports franchise, a business, a neighbor, a boss, even a parent. If evil is allowed to rule without being challenged, then the word “good” has no meaning.

Darryl is right. Mike McQueary should have beaten the living shit out of Sandusky on the spot when the rape was occurring. McQueary should have turned Sandusky into a bag of broken bones, which he could have done. Without question McQueary probably would have lost his job, he would have been sued; he would have been castigated in the sports community and may not have found another coaching job. But he would have saved that little boy and perhaps many others over the years. He had a moral obligation to that child, and he turned away from it trusting “the system” to do the right thing for him—which of course did not happen. Everyone in “the system” chose purposely to do the wrong thing to save themselves and their careers. In the sporting world, every person that knew about Jerry Sandusky’s rape of children is guilty. And many did know, because as Darryl pointed out, nobody offered Jerry Sandusky a job after he left Penn State, because they didn’t want the baggage. Nobody will ever admit it in the light of day, but they knew which was revealed in their silence.

I’m sure Mike McQueary like many people in his position wish they could go back and do it all again. I’m sure he’s played it out in his mind thousands of times what he “should have” done, but didn’t. When people ask me why I’ve taken the positions I have, or said the things I have, or done the things I’ve done to people who have done wrong and accuse me of being extreme, and over-the-top, I would point to issues like this situation at Penn State. I will not have on my conscience the kind of torture Mike McQueary has experienced. Lucky for me, I’ve had court judges who think of these matters similar as I do, and could have put me in jail many times over, but didn’t because they recognized the situations for what they were. But that doesn’t always happen, and some of those old judges from my past are long retired and have been replaced by lifetime ambulance chasing lawyers just looking for steady work, and have very little ethics. So it is possible they might throw the book at a freedom fighter just because they can, so they don’t have to feel the guilt of their own decrepit lives by equal measure.

Right now, many reading this know of some little tyranny in their own lives that they are doing nothing about, and they are letting down the innocent with their inaction. They eat, they watch too much television, they rent too many movies in a hope to push those thoughts from their minds, but it doesn’t work—does it? No amount of alcohol or any other drug can fully push it from the mind once the imprint of a coward makes its mark. And that makes them diminished human beings incapable of running their own lives, raising children, running businesses or serving as politicians. In fact, my hatred of most politicians is over this very issue. Most of them are cowards who are seeking to redeem some little Mike McQueary moment in their lives by serving on a school board, or becoming a township trustee. But what they bring with them to the table is more of their cowardly behavior and they seek to make deals with other cowards because like minds think the same, and soon they have made victims of thousands instead of just a few leaving behind destruction and psychological mayhem in their wake. No amount of tax money stolen from the tax payers can purchase their ticket into heaven making up for the sins of their past. There isn’t enough money in all of human potential that can erase the sins of inaction once they’ve happened.

I won’t lie to you dear reader, life is much easier if you just turn away from the tortured children of the world, or avoid the punks, the losers, the dirty politicians who at every turn seek to make a new victim at the hands of their aggression. But in the act of turning away, your mind records it, and you will never forget the pieces of you that are lost by each transgression. It is not just depleted cellular growth that makes people old; it’s the pieces that fall away as we must remember all the times we’ve turned away from evil to save our own skins leaving another to perish at the hands of a monster. So personally speaking, there is much less damage in kicking the shit out the monster right then and there and letting the chips fall wherever, because the inaction will cost you more in the long run.

Reds Pitcher Aroldis Chapman Arrested: Behold the Superman

with 2 comments

I listened with a level of fascination to the public outcry over Aroldis Chapman’s recent arrest for excessive speeding and driving without a license after being clocked going 93 miles per hour on I-71 on his way to the airport to pick up his girlfriend. The very same people who sit in the stands and cheer the Reds relief pitcher throwing fast balls up to 105 mph and is nicknamed the “Cuban Missile” because of his national heritage, turned their backs on the supposed reckless antics of Chapman during his late night run across Ohio to meet the flight schedule at the airport.

I can speak with complete authenticity that I understand Chapman’s situation, as I have been in precisely the same circumstance many times. As I’ve discussed here many times, I love to drive fast. In fact it’s the subject of my upcoming novel Tail of the Dragon, and the theme of that novel almost mirrors exactly this situation with Chapman. So I have to comment on this issue which I feel very passionate about.

Many of the weak and timid minded—the types of people who lobby to create some of these ridiculous speed limit laws in the first place think that 90 mph is fast—and it’s not. It’s only fast compared to their slow, cumbersome minds. I drive that fast in our family mini-van, and I don’t think anything of those types of speeds, and I have not come close to crashing in over twenty years. So with a car of the quality that Chapman was driving, a Mercedes built easily for speeds of up to 150 mph, 90 mph is not a problem. While behind the wheel of a car like that, Chapman is in no danger to anybody, not even himself. I’ve driven faster than that for many of the same reasons, and I find it appalling that people are making such a big deal about Chapman’s need for speed.

This arrest of Chapman is a great example of how the laws of our society reflect the level of tyranny politicians have injected upon the human race. The speed limits are set to the soft minded of our people, of the lowest skilled, and pander to their slow reflexes and timid natures. Our laws do not encourage such types to think faster, to become better to adapt to the world around them—the laws pander to society’s weakest links in the same manner that everywhere in our modern age there are parking spaces reserved for the handicapped and physically ill. The intentions of such laws are out of compassion to the collective whole, and the average of that collective is brought down to a ridiculously low level of tolerance because the weak links of society bring down the standards for all of us and that simply isn’t fair or representative of freedom.

I have never been able to live within the speed limits of society. I find the limits the rest of civilization places upon itself to be mind-numbingly dull and ridiculously slow. The complaints I heard about Chapman were that he might have killed someone, and that he was behaving as though he were above the law—and each of those statements drove me closer to an eruption of anger that I haven’t felt for a number of years. Those who complained about Chapman’s speed and behavior are the same kind of people who have pushed for the overly regulated world that we currently live in. Government serves those docile personalities who are too lazy or apprehensive to compete in the rest of the world with those who are better than they are, who are faster, and who are stronger. It is those complainers of Aroldis Chapman who have brought socialism to the United States pushing capitalism into a dark corner of our social tapestry.

Many athletes find it very difficult to turn off their superior reflexes and talents when interacting with the rest of society in normal life. On the football fields and baseball diamonds of professional sports fans pay their tickets to see these superior human beings compete on the field of battle and they are cheered on for being who they are—for being what God created them to be to the maximum limit of their talent. That is why they are being paid such large amounts of money because the professional athletes are the first handers of society; they set the pace everyone else strives to achieve. The second handers are those who sit in the stands and watch the players play their game, they are the ones who cheer on the superior athlete to accomplish what they as second handers cannot.

In sports it is the fence that protects the second handers of society from the first handers on the field. Or on TV, it is the TV screen, or the radio that protects the masses from the superior men and women of athletics. When I heard the panic reaction from society about Aroldis Chapman’s excessive speed, I heard fear from society in wanting the assurance that they are protected from the interaction of the first handers. They want assurance that the laws created to protect the second handers will protect them from the superiority of Aroldis Chapman and the other superior minded human beings who stand above the rest in talent and intelligence.

When looked at in this way it is obvious why society has so many laws, and that is to protect the life of the second hander from competition. When I have passed by other highway drivers at double their speed I can feel the hostility from those drivers as they peer at my disappearing vehicle. They wonder why I can’t drive as slow as they do. What do I have to do that is so important that I can’t wait in line on the highway like the rest of them? Why am I so important? What makes me better than they are? For me, I drive fast to leave these types of mentalities far behind because there is nothing worse than a long trip staring at the lumbering tendencies of a second hander, a weak, “socially conscious,” broken link in the chain of society. The sight of them is not something I wish to observe for long periods of time, and I seek to move out ahead of them.

Why should Aroldis Chapman spend an extra 40 minutes on I-71 driving from Kentucky to Columbus, Ohio because the laws of the socially average wish protection from the superior driving skills of people like Chapman? It’s not Chapman’s task to restrict his God-given talents to live within the limits of the physically slow. It is the task of the physically slow to improve themselves and strive to be better. It is their task to recognize that a man of superior driving ability is coming up behind them rapidly and they should move out-of-the-way so not to cause an accident. It is the job of the inferior person to yield to the superior person. The superior person should not rub the nose of the inferior person in the muck of their own existence. But the superior person should encourage the inferior person to help them become better. The task of the superior person is not to be less than they are in society just to be “fair” to the second hander. That simply isn’t fair to people like Aroldis Chapman who is clearly one of the supermen walking on the earth presently.

This week the Ohio Highway Patrol is cracking down on seat belt violations and charging thousands of dollars in fines generated by the courts. DUI checkpoints are set up to alter the freedoms of individuals with impunity and all those laws were initiated to make the masses of society feel, “safe,” to pander to their fears and insecurities. There are simply too many rules, and they greatly restrict a free society in unnecessary ways and defy common sense. I’m not saying that there should not be speed limits of any kind or rules of any kind. But they should not be set around the parameters of the weak links of society. In Ohio, 65 mph is simply too slow. The speed limit should easily be 85 mph. I would argue that the only reason the laws were created in the first place were to appear to satisfy the whims of the panicky voters, the second handers so that revenue could be generated by the fines for breaking the law. The politicians will point to the fearful public and profess that the laws were created by request, but the real motive is to generate additional tax revenue for the state. That is the reason for all these laws, not the protection of its citizens.

Aroldis Chapman is not just a superman because he can throw a 105 mph fastball and has hundreds of strikeouts to close out victories for the Cincinnati Reds. Chapman even though he is a young man has learned to disobey certain laws in society so that he is not confined to a mundane existence. Chapman was born in communist Cuba and had a chance to compete in the Beijing Olympics but was suspended for attempting to defect from his tyrannical home country of Cuba. President Raul Castro met with Chapman personally and gave him a second chance because the second handers of Cuba wished to use the strength of Chapman to win sports awards for the nation of Cuba and gain world-wide respect, so Chapman was allowed to play in the World Baseball Classic. While participating in the World Port Tournament in Rotterdam, Netherlands Chapman attempted to defect again, to escape the communism of Cuba, and on his second attempt he was successful. He quickly established residence in Andorra and then petitioned Major League Baseball to be granted free agent status. The Cincinnati Reds jumped at the chance, and signed Chapman to at six-year contract worth $30.25 million. To gain all this it cost Chapman his relationship with his mother and father, two sisters and a girlfriend who had given birth to a newborn baby.

If Chapman would have followed the rules, he would still be a prisoner of communism allowing Cuba to loot his talent for a fraction of the cost he is able to get playing for the Cincinnati Reds. He left behind everything to gain everything and it’s his recognition that risk would buy him freedom that allowed him to become what he is today. It’s his tendency to break the rules that earned him freedom his parents could only dream about, and Chapman took the step to take it for himself, which will ultimately benefit his entire family much more than if he allowed himself to be picked apart in the best years of his life by the looting communists of Cuba.

Without question, Chapman sees this situation with the speed limits in The United States the same way. All he wanted to do was pick up his girlfriend at the airport. But he found himself arrested and thrown in jail by the second handers who are attempting to turn The United States into Cuba with more and more laws every day. And the same people who cheer Chapman on the pitching mound turned against him during his arrest, because they see in Chapman a superman that escaped the safety behind their televisions and radios and was functioning like a superior man in the world of the meek, and it scared them. It was not Aroldis Chapman who is in the wrong, he’s simply doing what he’s always done—it’s the weak-minded second hander who created the pathetically low-speed limit in the first place not to protect their lives from danger, but their minds from the reality that they are simply second handers and socially worthless next to the likes of a first hander like Aroldis Chapman.

I like Aroldis Chapman more than ever now. I was a fan before, but now my respect has doubled. I may actually go out and buy one of his jerseys to declare my support of this fine young man who is being ridiculed in society for being too “big” for the average standards of the political class and their pandering mobs of safety seekers.

Redistribution Plan of the Obama Looters: Reds beat the Yankees on a Sunday Afternoon

leave a comment »

I spent a great deal of time outside this past Sunday working on the yard. During this endeavor I listened to the radio as I often do when working in and around the garage and I noticed that from noon till 6:15 PM that same day, I heard nothing but news coverage for the Reds baseball team. First it was the pre-game report that discussed various pitching match-ups and hitter percentages. Then there was the actual game against the Yankees, of which the Reds won. Then for two hours after the game there was post-game talk. I enjoyed the game but I wondered about the type of men and women listening that cared about all the statistics of those individual players who are technically only kids playing baseball on a Sunday afternoon. The amount of attention given to baseball was bewildering to me especially with the kind of things going on in the world. As this Reds broadcast filled the airwaves with entertainment my friend Matt Clark was doing his own radio show trying his best to bring some alarming statistics to the minds of his listeners.

Matt’s broadcasts shown here warning Americans of the collective salvation that Obama and his minions of looters are attempting to inject upon the American people are a whole lot more sinister than a baseball game. The same mind that listens to the sports statistics of specific players should be able to analyze the tremendous amount of evidence that there is that President Obama is at the front of a collectivist movement to eradicate all Americans with wealth redistribution. What’s great about Matt’s broadcasts is his frequent use of actual clips depicting the dialogue these collective looters are implementing.

The work of the Obama gang is a clear case of what Ayn Rand would call the “second handlers.” These are people who initiate no work or productivity on their own, but instead are completely dependent upon others to initiate action. This means that the “second handler” must take from a “first handler” in order to do anything. Obama’s basic economic plan as well as those of his friends are to make the entire world into a society of “second handlers,” so that each person is connected to another and this will foster peace as it’s termed by the hippie movement—because everyone is assured of their own destruction if they attempt to harm someone they are dependent on. A society of kiss-assess is the Obama vision.

However, this view of the world is entirely created for the benefit of the “second handler.” The second handler does not understand that it takes a first handler to create the things that the second handler attempts to redistribute to others. Without the first handler taking action, the second handler has nothing to do. A society of second handlers is worthless as an economic power, because second handlers not capable to produce anything. They can do work, but they cannot initiate the work.

I thought of second handlers a lot as I listened to the radio broadcast of the Reds game. It was obvious to me that the people who chose to pay attention to all these sports statistics instead of the statistics of their government are committing a crime rooted in neglect. By their political indifference, they are feeding the life of the second handlers by working, paying taxes, and blindly voting for the policies of looters like Obama without equal analysis as they commit to the pitching staff of the Reds baseball team. If they did, there would be no quarrel by me. Sports can be fun, and I personally enjoy them. But they cannot replace the logical management of our republic on the matters that truly count, which is what’s happening.

Matt Clark in the three videos shown here breaks it down clearly for all to understand. He has made it easy for the average person to see what is happening by the second handlers of our government. But let me make it even easier than he has. Let me put what he has said into baseball terminology, since that is apparently all anyone cares to pay attention to—Obama and his government of collectivists are not leaders. They are our governmental representatives, but they are not happy with that role and are attempting to pronounce themselves princes, princesses, kings, queens and emperors. They are attempting to do what every dictator, monarch and tyrant has done in the short history of the human race, and that is rule as a second handler—a person who requires others to live and will use their collection of pawns to prop themselves into power. And they are using the distraction of sports and popular culture to mask their sinister intentions of wealth redistribution and world-wide socialism.

On sports teams like the Reds, Joey Votto is a first handler. The team will live or die by his performance. On the other hand the manager Dusty Baker is a second handler. His only task is to reflect the philosophy of team ownership onto the field of play. Neither the ownership or the manager, or the token support players mean much without a Joey Votto—which is why Joey gets paid so well—because Votto is a first handler. The manager and most other members of the team could be replaced or changed without changing the nature of the team. But Joey Votto could not be replaced or changed without destroying the product seen on the field. This is the nature of all things.

The same with Obama and government in general, the government looter is like the management of Dusty Baker. They are well-intentioned and wish to believe they are in charge, but because they are second handlers they are completely at the mercy of the first handlers. In our nation the first handlers are big companies who produce huge amounts of tax revenue—such as “big oil,” “bankers,” and in general most of the organizations that Obama constantly ridicules. He ridicules these economic factions as a second handler attempting to take from someone else so that he can give to those who do not have—wealth redistribution. But at the same time he expects the first handler to continue working, innovating, and creating even though they get to keep less of their created wealth so that others can loot off their labor. This is the folly of our collectivist nation led by these looters of government.

Yet it is not the first handler who is wrong, even though they are made to feel that way, it is the second handler. We feel the same way about those people as we do with Rex Ryan who coaches the New York Jets. In that case, like Obama, Ryan is a second handler who wants to pretend he is a first handler and at an innate psychological level, we understand that he’s not. That’s why Ryan is the subject of public scrutiny because he does not understand that the team is not about him. With the Jets, the first handler there is the cornerback Revis. The team of the New York Jets lives or dies by the performance of Darrelle Revis, not Rex Ryan or Mark Sanchez.

The danger is when Americans allow the second handlers of our society to believe they have all the power, and we allow them to do this because our minds are on sports statistics instead of the very serious matters of the day such as politics. As Matt Clark pointed out in great detail with the broadcasts above, there has been a lot of manipulation going on behind our backs by a president who is attempting to rule as a second handler, and this is very dangerous. But the way to beat him is not with anger, or protests, but by taking away what he attempts to redistribute to others. If Americans took away the ability of the second handler to “handle” anything it would reduce those people to the task of becoming worthless, which is the biggest fear the second handler has in life. And this is what needs to happen to every looter who has their hands into your life robbing you in broad daylight while the sports statistics of children occupy your mind with clutter.

I know many people who take the sports statistics further than even professional sports and even pay attention to college stats and high school athletes. My advice to you is to give it up. Don’t try to live your lives through these children and surrender your country to the second handlers of Obama and his minions of looters. Pay attention to their actions the way you do with sports stats and many of the problems in our world would be solved, because you’d be able to see and hear what Matt is trying to point out, that we are under attack by the second handlers of society who are trying to obtain collective salvation on all of our backs, which is simply reprehensible, and diabolical for the long-term sustainability of our nation. If it continues, you will find that once we get to the ninth inning and are losing by 5 runs in America and are down two runs with two outs we’ll wonder how it happened. And the answer is that we could have fixed it, and won the game much earlier, but didn’t because we weren’t paying attention placing our value on all the wrong aspects of our lives.

“Believe” in Eric LeGrand: The Tampa Buccaneers make a BOLD move that will change the world

leave a comment »

When I first heard that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had signed DT Eric LeGrand to the 90 man roster my first thought was that it was in bad taste to appeal to the world and sell tickets to my favorite team for the upcoming season by exploiting a young man’s depilating injury. LeGrand was severely injured during a special teams tackle while playing at Rutgers and broke his neck paralyzing him at age 20 from the neck down. Doctors gave LeGrand a 0 to 5% chance to ever regain any feeling in the neurological systems of his body.

But Eric is a tough kid and shortly after his injury, he insisted to be taken off his breathing machine. Then he gained feeling in his hands. LeGrand worked every day to move a part of his body and now he can actually stand for periods of time, which is an absolutely tremendous achievement. Coach Schiano who was his coach at Rutgers when LeGrand went down with the injury has been helping the young man stay focused, along with the fantastic support of a mother who refuses to quit, and it is becoming clear what forces have helped give Eric LeGrand the inner strength to beat these impossible odds to recovery.

Coach Schiano is now the coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that is loaded with talent, but lost their way last season with a lack of focus and leadership. My love of the Buccaneers stems from the ownership of the Glazer family, and how innovative they have been in their approach to the game of football, and the NFL in general. When they hired Schiano after many interviews with many coaches, some who had taken their teams to last year’s playoff games, it was evident they saw something special in Schiano that would resurrect a level of greatness that the fans of Tampa Bay had come to expect.

Schiano has not disappointed so far, he has made some fantastic acquisitions in the free agency market, and this year’s draft is considered to be one of the best in Buccaneer history. The team has managed to create some cap room to work with, and they have used it to get some really good players to fill the voids exposed during the last season. That is why it seemed like a publicity stunt to see that Schiano had put LeGrand on the Buccaneer 90 man roster. After all, there is no way that LeGrand will play DT for Tampa Bay in 2012 if ever. Even if he could gain the ability to walk again, there is simply no way that he could outperform the hoards of other athletes all competing for the same job who have not suffered a debilitating injury. That is the conventional wisdom of the stats and science in placing an NFL player on the field to win football games. But conventional wisdom does not produce exceptions, and in any competitive endeavor, it is the exceptional that tip the balance of power in favor of a victor.

Great players are a dime a dozen, and coaches, teams and fans are always on the look-out for those special individuals who display leadership in the face of adversity and overcome odds that are insurmountable, and LeGrand certainly exhibits these traits without even stepping onto a football field.

My personal feelings about injuries and the kind of things doctors tell us are well noted here. I believe cancer could be cured tomorrow but the pharmaceutical companies and FDA are more concerned about preserving the status quo for their retirement accounts than actually solving a problem that will change medicine. When it comes to spinal cord injuries and nerve damage, doctors often project doomsday scenarios tapping their patients into the local pharmacy promoting bags of drugs to return the sick to some semblance of a normal life.

I don’t trust much of what doctors tell me, because I find the limits of their medical understanding confining and their belief in the potential of the human body to be deficient. My own doctors and rehab specialists tried to guide me in returning my knee to full function after extensive ACL surgery. I had torn my ACL in a basketball game, and then further damaged my knee by tearing the MCL while jumping through a wall of fire performing a whip stunt. The grass was wet to protect it from being burnt, so when I landed my foot slipped out from under me because there was no ACL to support my leg, and my femur actually drove into the ground leaving a small crater. My knee-joint slipped so far out of socket the bone had no knee in the way to protect it.

Doctors gave me weeks of rehab as the prognosis once they repaired my ACL, but I worked hard to recover as quickly as possible. I had my surgery done on a Thursday; I was walking and back to work on the following Monday. I could have milked time off work for weeks if I wanted to, but that is not how I think. I wanted to recover, and get back on my feet quickly—and I did. I went to rehab every couple of days, and I felt they were wasting my time, like my appointments were simply to provide work for the rehab employees and had very little to do with my actual recovery. I stunned the staff recovering 6X’s faster than the average, according to them. When my insurance company saw my progress with the rehab clinic, they cut the payments to my rehab. And on that day, it was my last session. I wasn’t about to pay for something out of my own pocket that I could do better on my own.

As I was leaving my therapists warned me that I might lose my advanced progress if I did not come to them anymore, in fact, my leg might not be as strong. They were aghast that I refused to take any medication during this time and made it sound as though my leg would fall off if I quit therapy. Within weeks of walking out on my therapists because my insurance company would no longer cover the costs, I was running on my leg again, and jumping through walls of fire—doing what I love doing.

My wife had ruptured a disk in her lower back carrying my youngest daughter the rest of the way up a mountain hike and didn’t realize it until we got home because she had difficulty walking. We went to see a back surgeon and discovered that she was about to become paralyzed from the waist down due to the disk slippage, so she went through emergency surgery.

After the surgery she had lost a lot of feeling in her toes and parts of her leg and was told that those nerves in her leg had been severally damaged, and she may never be able to walk correctly. Well, to my wife, this simply wasn’t an option. She had kids to raise and things to do. We rubbed her legs and feet for hours stimulating the damaged nerves and gradually she regained most of her feeling, and within a month, was able to walk normally. Again, if we had listened to the doctors, she would probably still have problems walking and her body would most likely be addicted to some pharmaceutical product to this very day even though that was well over decade ago.

The injury to LeGrand is much more severe than either one of the injuries described above, but what he has that is in common is a will to recover, to conquer his debilitation and take charge of his own body and its functions, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. For that, Coach Schiano is wise to understand that by placing LeGrand on the very young Tampa Bay Buccaneers football team that the presence of LeGrand will inspire the other players to greatness, to be at the top of their physical prowess, because compared to LeGrand, what does anyone have to complain about. If LeGrand can work out with the Buccaneers players and they see what it looks like to recover from paralysis what does a healthy player have as an excuse to not strengthen a ham string injury, or a sprained ankle?

For the inspiration of having such a positive presence on the practice field, LeGrand is worth the roster spot, and will certainly earn the privilege of playing in the NFL, even if it’s just on the sidelines. Because like most games, the battles are not won just on the field of play, they are won in the mind of the participants before the contest even begins.

I believe that with the positive attitude that Eric LeGrand has, with the support of his very positive mother and mentoring of Coach Schiano, that Eric may very well take his first steps on the practice field at One Buc Place sometime during the upcoming football season. Once Eric is on the field around other athletes, that desire to compete will drive the cells of his body to his cause, and he will walk while in a Buccaneer uniform, and the world will shudder at the miracle. LeGrand will become a shock to the medical industry of the world as new hope will be given to all victims of paralysis. The medicine of positive thinking will begin to get serious reappraisal.

Further, I believe that by the 2013 season, Eric will be running again and will be able to practice on the field simulating plays with the practice squad. And because he will have recovered and worked so hard to come back to that point, he will be a superior athlete, far surpassing what most in his position have otherwise achieved, because he has had to learn to overachieve just to recover.

By the 2014 season Eric will be in the rotation of DT’s in Tampa and he will find that he has surpassed his previous playing ability with a ferocity that defies fear, because he will have a new lease on life and will know that he has survived the worse that can be thrown at him, and he beat it back and the world will gasp at his stunning performance on third downs.

By 2015, just 5 short years from his terrible injury at Rutgers, at the tender age of 27, Eric LeGrand will be the dominate DT in the league and will be the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Many all over the NFL will be comparing him to Warren Sapp and Lee Roy Selmon but Eric will have done something nobody in the history of the world has done, he will have returned from an injury that doctors had doomed him to a life of paralysis to not only recover, but be bigger, stronger, and faster than ever before because he had knocked on death’s door and faced that ultimate fear at the brink, and that will make him unstoppable. And his never-say-quit attitude will carry the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a string of Superbowl wins that will dominate the NFL for a 6 year period up to the 2022 season. And Eric LeGrand will be known as one of the greatest players to ever play the game and he’ll not only change the game of football for the better, but will alter the course of medical science.

If you can think it, you can do it Eric.  (CLICK HERE for more info)

It will all come back to the odd decision of Coach Schiano and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to sign a paralyzed, but optimistic kid to their 90 man roster in 2012, a decision that will reenergize Buccaneer football in Tampa to a new decade of dominance and inspire the world to the unlimited possibilities of positive thinking. Once again it will be proven that the prizes of life do not go to the quicker, the stronger, or the largest man, but to the one who simply refuses to quit and believes that they can do anything once they set their mind to it and force their bodies to equal the quality of their thoughts.  The strength of heart simply has more value than the bulk of muscle, and is so rare that even if a person is in a wheel chair they can have more value than a whole busload of healthy players that are the best physical athletes of their age, yet lack the inner drive to achieve beyond expectation.  That is why Eric LeGrand will change the world, starting with the fate of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

Fire the CANNONS!!!!!!

Snoopy versus The Red Baron: The true meaning of modern Christmas

with 17 comments

I have two Christmas songs that I enjoy more than any other. One is The Little Drummer Boy  which captures all the spiritual essence of the Christmas Holiday on the religious side of things. My other is a little song recorded in Tampa, Florida by The Royal Guardsman called Snoopy’s Christmas.

That song is all about an elusive quality called “valor” and is far more important than the progressive social engineering that took place during and after World War 1 on the heels of The Treaty of Versailles. In the song Snoopy in deadly combat with the dreaded Red Baron captures the essence of what Christmas is all about when Snoopy lands behind enemy lines with the Baron, his enemy, and partakes in a feast to enjoy one day off the battlefield where the two rivals toast each other.

Without saying a word of dialog but only communicating with grunts and facial expressions Snoopy reflects the inner quest of all people to achieve a level of honor through proven valor on the battlefields of life and this cannot be removed from the consciousness of the human race, even though the attempts have been vigorous. The popularity of sports and the combat of competition are what drive the world and always have. The more tampering socially that politicians have attempted to inflict on behalf of peace have only mitigated into the unintentional perpetuation of more violence. This can be seen in the increase of MMA fighting replacing wrestling and some boxing as a new favorite sporting event.

Wars could be simply reduced to the desire for nations to maintain their national honor and it is the combatants individually who play out that quest. Honor is a level of quality that proclaims that one side of a conflict has a higher quality than the other side, and only in the competition of combat can it be determined who has more quality than the other. In World War 1 it was the Red Baron who set the standard of aerial combat in a manner of fighting that was only a few decades old. Even though it was Americans who invented flight, it was the Germans who first mastered the concept of a flying ace and the Red Baron was the best of the best as can be seen in these fantastic sequences of combat in the skies over Europe.

Progressives at the time of World War 1 with their academic pretentious naivety assumed that the world wanted peace as they did, and Woodrow Wilson at the time used the horrors of the war to propose his vision of a League of Nations which was essentially like a board of directors at a college who would rule the world and prevent all future wars between nations. The League of Nations would eventually become The United Nations after 30 years of constant promotion it was finally accepted after World War 11, a war that was actually caused by World War 1. Because World War 1 was really not about any outright injustice between nations, the war was essentially about honor and the individuals who made up those respected countries which can be seen brilliantly in this clip from The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

Progressives in all their sheltered perception believe that they can engineer from the human mind through education, government social programs and business regulation a fairness that has never been seen on planet earth, but in reality their pretension is just as arrogant as this next scene from another episode of The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles where Indy has dinner with the Red Baron himself along with other German aces from the period. (By the way, if you thought Indiana Jones was only a series of four movies you are missing out. The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles is some of the best television ever produced about history and will make an excellent present to yourself if you are so inclined. In this series Indiana Jones the fictional character meets all the real movers and shakers who helped shape the 20th century. As a spy, Indy finds himself at dinner with the Red Baron and learns what the real motivations of the war truly were).

After the war President Wilson and his friends from Britain and France decided to divide up the world to their liking and attempted to implement a progressive social engineering approach with the aforementioned Treaty of Versailles. This arrogant attempt by them gave rise to the Nazi party in their treatment of the Germans by crushing them to dust making Hitler their only hope for redemption. It was also the Treaty of Versailles that created the modern Middle East by dismantling the Ottoman Empire and creating the nations we see there today. Even though countries like Palestine, Iraq, Iran and many others came out of this division of property the conflicts erupting to this very day are worse than ever because the nature of the people who made up the Ottoman Empire still wish to live a feudal existence because that is their culture. Also at the Treat of Versailles a young Ho Chi Man from Vietnam pleaded that Wilson help release his country from French occupation. Wilson blew off the young bell boy of Paris and the young man went to the Communist recruiter across the street in Paris as a last refuge of hope for bringing freedom to his country. That is how communism came to Vietnam. This complete blunder by the well-intentioned yet pretentious Wilson ushered in the violence in South East Asia that would become the Vietnam conflict and it really started during the creation of this treaty.

Progressives ludicrously have underestimated the factor of human endeavor for which they are vacant and that is valor. Since they don’t understand it, because they have not developed it themselves, since academics tend to be squeamish personalities lacking in physical prowess, an attempt to use intellect to suppress bravery as valid human endeavors has been attempted. Progressives believe foolishly that by doing this they can eliminate war from the human mind. What progressives did however was essentially no different from what the Red Baron was doing. The Baron used his physical abilities and skills as a pilot to defeat his enemies, and it was the task of his competitors even at the cost of their lives to surpass him. Progressives used their ability to manipulate and deceive through academic psychology to disarm their enemies thinking that since they were so intellectually proficient that they had the right to rule the world…….they are in essence no different or less evil than the Red Baron.

And that is the moral to the story of Snoopy versus the Red Baron in that wonderful song that each time I hear it I think of all the above, because the song is not only about a pivotal moment in human history but it’s about the elusive quality of valor where enemies in the air take a moment to toast each other behind enemy lines because in the end the conflict was not personal, it was simply about the quest to find out what each other was made of that made the conflict either heroic or tragic. Progressive peace-loving politics has robbed the earth of this well understood definition of valor and replaced it the only way they could, but using communism to suppress the individual to authority of their “betters” in an attempt of creating a world without war. But in doing so they have had to attempt to dumb down every human being on the planet by watering down the necessity for competition to prove human valor; wasn’t that the lesson of the great novel and film A Clockwork Orange? In that film society attempted to program out what they perceived to be the evil of a young diabolical man and ended up discovering that in doing so they destroyed everything good about the kid leaving him mute and vulnerable to a highly competitive society.

What we all want on Christmas Day is to spend time with our friends and family, and to see what those people think of us in the form of presents under a lit up Christmas Tree. Christmas Day is a unique pause in competition that society nationally and internationally participates in and puts our conflicts off to the side while we silently pay tribute not only to the spiritual aspects of Christmas, but to the efforts of our previous year. Again, progressives miss the point of Christmas by attempting to take the Christian reference away; they forget what the holiday truly is to the deep minds of the human race. But The Royal Guardsman understood what Christmas was as they told the story of Snoopy, the Red Baron, and a break in the action for a feast about living with the knowledge that they will meet again in the field of battle. The battles we fight in life are not necessarily about killing the other person or defeating the other nation. The battles we fight are to know that we are everything we can be and we need competition to bring it out in us. And so long as communism and capitalism are on the same planet there will never be peace, the earth will always be at war. Because capitalism needs competition to work, and communism needs collective surrender to fairness to work. Communism however robs the individual of valor and leaves behind a shell of a person, which is the ultimate destroyer of not only people, but nations. And the day after Christmas when all the presents are opened, and the aroma of Christmas dinner has left our senses we will return like Snoopy and the Red Barron to the fight for our very lives in a quest for the valor that feeds our very souls.

Merry Christmas!!!!

The Flying Tigers: An age of greatness that must return

with 26 comments

In the picture above that is me in the fifth grade during 1979 right after the epic soapbox derby race that was a cliffhanger to the very end. My car stole the hearts of the spectators who witnessed that event on a hot summer day that year. But what many didn’t know or understand was how important to me that saw-toothed mouth was painted on the front of my car. As you can see dear reader my experience with the media goes back quite a few years and if you work at it you might be able to read the story of that spectacular day by enlarging the photograph of the article. The car itself was named The Beast because that was the year that Kings Island first opened their signature roller coaster which I instantly fell in love with. But the mouth on the front was from my favorite airplane in the Aerospace Museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.  Now before we continue on dear reader I ask for your attention and patience.  Take your time with this.  Read it all and watch the videos.  You will gain vast insight into what is happening around you to this very day.  What you will learn here will equal dozens of hours of college level history.  So Please make use of it!

My love of the P-40 Warhawk displayed so valiantly in Dayton goes back as far as I can remember, and I can vividly remember things from when I was 1 and 2 years old. The P-40 Warhawk was the signature plane flown by the famous Flying Tigers AVG group led by General Claire Chennault, a man I have always felt an affinity for. Chennault was a brilliant strategist, a natural leader, but was extremely abrasive to his superiors often participating in open conflict with them. These disputes with his military superiors led him to resign from the United States Army Corps with the rank of captain in the year 1937 after a rather brilliant career as organizer of the 1st Pursuit Group of the Army Air Corps acrobatic team the “Three Musketeers” where the group performed in the National Air Races. Later he became the pursuit aviation instructor at Maxwell Field of a team named “The Men on the Flying Trapeze.” Chennault had developed the rare ability to master strategy without compromising American horse sense a talent that infuriated his superiors, so he quit the Army.

But that wasn’t the end, Chennault would become far more famous and valuable as a special advisor to Generalissimo Chang Kai-shek of China as that country attempted to protect itself from the Japanese who were in the late 1930’s attempting to overrun China on a quest for natural resources. And to the north of China was the communists who were heavily funded by the Soviet Union and instigating a civil war within China. The situation was remarkably similar to what the United States would find itself in during the start of the next century where outside interests like George Soros is funding aggression against the United States indirectly while we are openly fighting enemies in Iran, Afghanistan and the invisible enemy of terrorism.  It’s a standard divide and conquer act by two enemies who work indirectly together for the mutual aim of destroying a rival.  In this case China was the target of both the communists and imperial Japan so they worked together to crush China from two fronts.  Sadly we all know that eventually China would be overrun by communism which it remains to this very day. In 1951 Chennault testified before the Senate Joint Committee on Armed Forces and Foreign Relations about the reason China was lost to Communist forces in 1951. Chennault after all his heroics in China during World War II had warned President Roosevelt and President Truman directly about the dangers of communism heading into China at the close of World War II, but both presidents were only focused on beating Japan, and it was their short-sighted commitments that caused the United States to pull out of China once the Japanese surrendered which led to the communists to surge in and overtake the government of China.

Sun Tzu to the Chinese is probably revered more highly than George Washington is to the United States. Chairman Mao used The Art of War to defeat Chiang Kai-shek. Chennault had worked closely with Kai-shek to hold off communism in China, but weak US policy after World War II lead to Mao taking over the country in 1949. Chennault warned of the possibility of future war with China in his WONDERFUL book Way of the Fighter published in 1949. In that book, which is now considered a rare book, Chennault predicted the trouble with Korea and Vietnam years before they occurred. The testimony did not sit well with the government, and they failed to act on Chennault’s warnings leaving China to wither under communist control which the United States would pay for dearly over the next 60 years.

To paint a picture of what that communist takeover was like for the people of China, which Chennault had fought so hard to prevent you can read vividly the description of events that occurred in the great book starting on page 505 of Joseph Campbell’s masterpiece called Oriental Mythology, published in 1962 and was part of four books he spent 12 years writing; he chronicles the beginning of communism in China quite startlingly. What follows are direct quotes from that book which is remarkably similar to the conditions America is finding itself in as President Obama signs the NDAA Bill in our modern age.
A man, aged twenty-two from Doi-Dura in th Amdo region was told by the Chinese that he required treatment to make him more intelligent. The Chinese at the time were telling Tibetans that they were a stupid inferior race and would have to be sup-planted by Russians and Chinese. They took blood tests of this man, his wife, and many others, and there are a number of corresponding reports from different parts of Tibet detailing the sort of operation to which this young man and his wife were the next day forced to submit. They were both taken to the hospital. “He was completely undressed, placed on a chair and his genital organs were examined. Then a digital rectal examination was carried out and the finger was agitated. He then ejaculated a whitish fluid and one or more drops fell on a glass slide which was taken away. After this a long pointed instrument with handles like those of scissors was inserted inside the urethra and he fainted with pain. When he came round the doctors gave him a white tablet which they said would give him strength. Then he received an injection at the base of the penis where it joins the scrotum. The needle itself hurt but the injection did not. He felt momentarily numb in the region until the needle was removed. He stayed ten days in the hospital and then a month in be at home….he had been married for only two years and prior to this treatment had very strong sexual feelings…Afterwards he had no sexual desire at all….”

Meanwhile, his wife “was undressed and tied down. Her legs were raised and outstretched. Something very odd which became painful was inserted inside the vagina. She saw a kind of rubber balloon with a rubber tube attached, the end of which was inserted inside the vagina. The balloon was squeezed and his wife felt something very cold inside her. This caused no pain and only the tube and not the balloon was inserted. She remained conscious throughout. Then she was taken to bed. The same procedure was carried on every day for about a week. Then she went home and stayed in bed for about three weeks,” and thereafter she had neither sexual feeling nor menstruation.

Such stories numbered in the thousands and were provoked by a belief that some groups of people should not breed, so measures were taken to ensure that blood lines would end.  There were many stories of political dissidents who just disappeared off the face of the earth completely once communism was dominate in China.  It wasn’t General Chennault’s fault however that communism prevailed. He arrived in China in 1937 to help train Chinese pilots to defend against Japanese aggression. By 1941 war with Japan was imminent with the United States and it was Chennault who lobbied President Roosevelt to provide airplanes and troops, neither of which the President would provide directly. Chennault was able to organize a volunteer group of 300 fighter pilots and ground crew to pose as tourists on their visas who were simply adventurers, mercenaries and unorthodox pilots who didn’t fit in well with the regimented control of military life. Roosevelt was finally able to send 100 P-40B Tomahawk aircraft because an order scheduled for Great Britain was cancelled. The Tomahawk was considered inferior in flight performance against German fighters. So China was getting from the United States 100 airplanes that nobody wanted, pilots and ground crew that were too undisciplined to serve in the armed forces, to fight a massive, highly organized enemy that ranged in the tens of thousands. The odds stacked against these soldiers of fortune were daunting.

The American Volunteer Group to my mind was no different from the privateers of the golden age of pirates. They were paid to kill and harass the enemy, the Japanese. The deal for the AVG pilots was a one-year contract with CAMCO to “manufacture, repair, and operate aircraft” at salaries ranging from $250 to $750 a month. Traveling expenses, thirty days leave with pay quarters, and $30 additional for rations were specified. The Chinese government paid $500 for each confirmed Japanese plane destroyed in the air or on the ground. An AGV pilot who strafed a Japanese airfield could become a very rich man since planes caught on a runway counted toward the bonus.

When Pearl Harbor was bombed it was the Flying Tigers who struck first, because they were the only group in position to act once war was declared. Under Claire Chennault the Flying Tigers maintained an extraordinarily high kill ratio of 40 to 1 against the enemy which was remarkable and they continued to have success being all that stood between Japan taking over China with ground occupation for over 6 months being desperately outnumbered. The AVG had virtually no backup supplies and had to repair their P-40’s with scrap material found in the local villages.

As usual, the government as a whole was way behind the curve regarding military action and once seeing how popular, and effective the AVG was sought to incorporate them into the military.  The AVG successes were not due to the brilliance of a single mind in Washington, and truthfully, if not for the work of The Flying Tigers the military may never have been able to win World War II.  Without capturing momentum in the Pacific the war in Europe would have been hopeless, and to a large extent it was General Patton who helped turn the tide there, another unconventional general who was brash, bold, and combative.  It could be argued that if General Chennault had been given command of the Pacific theater, there may have never been a need for an atomic bomb.  If Chennault had just a few more resources, he might have crushed Japan two years earlier.  It was the genius of a few who won the war.  It was the government looters who cost thousands upon thousands of lives.  Even when the AVG was brought into the official military operations under General Stilwell where General Chennault and Stilwell fought daily, Stilwell insisted on making life for Chennault a living hell because he was jealous of Chennault’s talents, so Stilwell purposely withheld supplies to Chennault’s group, which seriously compromised the strategic interests of China. But Chennault succeeded anyway in spite of the terrible working conditions and overwhelming odds.

The AVG proved to be superior pilots not just against the enemy but among other Americans. Tex Hill would become one of the most spectacular and amazing pilots of World War II. His war record which started on the dirt runways of the Flying Tigers would last through impossible odds till the end of the war.

The saw-toothed mouths put fear into the enemy in similar tactics that made the Pirates of the Caribbean so successful 300 years earlier as fortune hunters and warriors in search of their personal fortunes fought in the skies over China. And along the way the Flying Tigers saved China from Japanese occupation long enough to choke Japan of resources allowing the US Navy to gain a foothold in the Pacific and eventually overtake Japan. In many ways it was General Chennault and his heroic volunteer pilots who won the war against Japan.

I learned from the Flying Tigers that it’s not always the strongest, the fastest, the most technologically superior who wins. In the end it’s the one who thinks they can who wins because the Flying Tigers were not the greatest airplanes. The pilots were not the best trained in the highest education institutions. And it wasn’t money, because there wasn’t any money, except the bonuses paid by the Chinese government to the pilots. The United States wasn’t able to send supplies to the Flying Tigers during the entire war. The Flying Tigers were great because of the swagger they flew with and their ability to be self-reliant.

My wife and I had the fortune recently to watch a P-40 airplane being restored at the War Bird Museum in Clermont County. It was a privilege to crawl around the inside of one of the sacred P-40’s from the Flying Tiger era that I adore so much. Because to me, the P-40 is the superior plane from the World War II period not because of its performance, but because it flew like the pilots themselves, it was not uncommon for P-40’s to return home after running out of gas and sputtering miraculously on fumes for impossible distances, or being shot up with so many holes that staying in the air seemed impossible. The P-40’s seemed to behave like the pilots who flew them. It was a pleasure to touch the metal and feel the spirit of one of these majestic planes up close, and to associate with the people who were restoring every last bolt of a P-40 so that it can roam the skies again.

And that is the lesson for our age and what we can learn from our heroes of the past. The pretentious rulers of government were just as foolish then as they are now. General Stilwell purposely put an entire country at risk because he disliked General Chennault. President Roosevelt failed to pull the trigger early enough to officially assist China and push against communism before they had gathered enough strength to kill many more lives in the war that became World War II. And the United States Navy was lost until it managed to study the tactics of General Chennault and began to use some of the former Flying Tiger pilots to help train their other pilots on how to defeat the Japanese in the air. But the moment the war was over; President Truman left China to fend for itself and pulled out all United States support. This allowed communism to take over China and cause 60 years of terror from a former ally. It is because of this act that we had the Korean War and the war in Southeast Asia.

The construction of my soapbox derby car was my small homage to Claire Chennault and his Flying Tigers because to me they represent everything that makes America the greatest country on earth. Americans aren’t great because we have technologically superior firepower. We are not great because we have good universities. We are not great because we have infinite supplies of food, water, and other resources. Americans are great who still understand how to think outside-the-box and can fix a shot up fuel line with bubble gum and are willing to fly into the enemy with a damaged plan that is out of bullets, out of gas, and out of luck, and rip through the enemy plane because the steel in the P-40 is made of stronger stuff than the enemy. The enemy is crushed, and the American comes home miraculously, because in the science of probability, it flies by sheer willpower to return home to fly again. And when that American puts their boots in the dusty soil of a foreign runway, a $500 bonus is put into their pockets and once they wash off all the blood and the plane is repaired, they’ll go up again to shoot up the enemy and collect $500 more for as long as they can breathe air in their lungs.

Every day when I step into my garage I pay homage to my version of those Flying Tigers by saluting my soapbox derby car as it hangs from my ceiling. That saw-toothed mouth grins at me and cries out to “GO GET EM.’” That car still looks as good today as it did when it tore down the hill behind Fort Hamilton Hospital in the quest for victory in a race that attracted the attention of all of Hamilton on that hot summer day. And as the crowd cheered at the spectacle my mind was not on them, but on the heroes of the Flying Tigers and the honor I felt to pay homage to them in the heroics of sport. Like the P-40’s of another time, my soapbox still sits perched from high above my garage and gazes down waiting to be called into war once again, and if not physically in the war, it can teach a new generation how to taste the blood of an enemy and become hungry for its nutrients when the times dictate such action. Because these times are no different from those times, the only things that differ are the names of the characters and the dates for which they occur.

As an added bonus to all you have read here and wish to know more than the text, videos and pictures above have revealed, feel free to grab some pop corn and the beverage of your choice and watch the great John Wayne classic, The Flying Tigers released by Republic Pictures in 1942 with John Wayne playing loosely the part of Claire Chennault in a film that the nation needed to see at the time.  I have included it below to make it easy for you to see!  Because at that time there wasn’t any good news to be had after Pearl Harbor except what the Flying Tigers were doing. And this film will give you a wonderful perspective of what the America was like then that made greatness a commodity that was the envy of the world. Because of that jealousy, the communists have attempted a less direct attack on our culture which we are currently experiencing. Just click the movie and enjoy the entire thing, and soak up what America is supposed to be so you can learn how to make it so again.

Crosstown Shootout Violence: A quandary of entertainment and tyranny

with 25 comments

It was just announced today December 15, 2011 that President Obama will sign the NDAA Bill with the more severe language of indefinite detention and torture of American citizens and as I stared at that little bit of data it solidified in my mind a nagging thought that I have had about the general population of America being functionally illiterate and intentionally breed through public education to be complacent and easy to conquer. There have been times that I have wondered about the frequent reports that the Department of Education was infiltrated by the KGB in the early 80’s and the KGB even had President Kennedy’s ear, and that communism was brought to America by our enemies and embedded into our education system and political structure. Such things sound like conspiracy theories uttered by lunatics and derelicts. Yet there is no other explanation of the utter disregard the American people have for being conquered while their eyes watch the act wide out in the open. After all, such things as the House and Senate conspiring with the president to throw Americans in jail and torture them while those same bodies of government cannot agree on the Keystone pipeline, or a balance budget amendment to me represent an open declaration of war against everything that it means to be an American and our enemies are not in some far away land, but sit in our own political offices. But those are not the news highlights that catch people’s attention and get discussed. Instead, people all across the country are consumed with talk about the Cross-town Shootout, the yearly rival game between the University of Cincinnati and Xavier and the fight that broke out at the end of the game this last Saturday.

I listened with some degree of awe to a relieved population when they learned that formal charges would not be filed against the participants of these fights after that annual game. There was talk about what the universities represented, and that fighting of this kind was not appropriate. There was talk about how grown adults who are alumni of these institutions would have to put blinders on to their loyalty and hold these cases to the rule of law as though such a thing would be difficult.  (BEWARE OF THOSE TWO HEADED SNAKES WHO PREACH VALOR IN BATTLE THEN PREACH PACIFISM WHEN VIOLENCE BREAKS OUT)

There were public admissions from the players that they did not represent the values of the universities and that they acted inappropriately in embarrassing those respective colleges.

I had to scratch my head. Why was any of this important? How did the news of this fight in college sports take precedence over the very big news emerging globally and in our nation’s capital? It doesn’t. I realized listening to the various news coverage over the last 5 days that the system built-in America using our education system to utterly destroy American culture was completely successful in taking even the very basic elements of sports and turning them on their head in a moments notice to shape the opinions of the masses in a controlled manner. So let me explain where the masses have gone wrong in this matter.

I like sports as much if not more so than most people. I have become so infuriated by sports outcomes that don’t go my way that I have thrown televisions across the room and through living room windows. My temper is legendary when it comes to this issue of anger and sports, and some might say that I have anger issues. I would say to them, I’m not the idiot who has openly embraced socialism in my culture and been pushed around year by year till all my freedom is gone while the appeasers tell me not to be violent, to turn the other cheek. No, I’ll say the same to you dear reader now that I told the pastor of my church when I was growing up and he attempted to counsel me upon my parents request to be less violent. “Jesus turned the other cheek, and so should you.”

I replied, “Yeah, he did, and look what happened to him.”

“But he died for your sins.”

“Yes, and the Christians were fed to the lions and the evil Roman Empire went on to rule for another few hundred years. Pacifism doesn’t work. It hasn’t worked for Christianity; it hasn’t worked for Tibet as the Chinese communists have maliciously killed them for years. And I’d go so far to say it didn’t work for Ghandi or Nelson Mandela in South Africa. Going to prison for over 20 years or starving in a jail or being nailed to a cross are not valiant uses of my personal time, and I won’t be partaking in that activity.”

“May God have mercy on your soul and forgive your judgments.”

“He has, he gave me the ambition to fight evil and see through the masks that use judgment to hide their true intentions. I consider it a gift from God that I intend to use fully.”

So with that qualifier I like sports and I like violence. I like to see the teams I root for play cleanly, to play hard and with passion. But when an injustice is done, I like to see my favorite players stick up for themselves. To date, I loved it when Warren Sapp of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers skipped through the opposing teams practice kicking down the pylons in the end zone. And back in the day I was a tremendous supporter of UC Basketball in the era of Bob Huggins and my favorite player then and to this very day in all of basketball was number 21 Melvin Levitt.

Once when I was playing softball I head butted the catcher as I was stealing home from third base and a fight erupted because I had scored a point. This game was a nothing game, no money, no professional reputation, it was just two companies against each other, and blood was spilled in trying to win. That’s part of sports. Bob Huggins coached the way I expected a head basketball coach to coach, and Melvin Levitt played the way I would have if I had the ability to play at that level. Mel Levitt’s nickname was The Helicopter because even though he was only 6’2” he was able to dunk the basketball from well above the rim. He could jump in an almost superhuman way, and when he got hot from the outside, he could hit the three pointer. Levitt is the guy who jumps over the three ball racks for a dunk!

I will never in my life forget the epic game when UC beat Duke University in the Great Alaskan Shootout. It was one of the most exciting games I’ve ever seen, and it was a dunk by Melvin Levitt that sealed the game with no time on the clock. Duke at that time was number one in the country and had 5 All Americans sitting on the bench not even playing, so they were loaded as far as talent. UC beating Duke was an epic tale of David versus Goliath. It was a HUGE win for UC.

Later that year when Mel Levitt played in their version of the Cross-town Shootout with Xavier, when UC was about to win Mel Levitt made a controversial motion with his hand that indicated they had just cut the head off of Xavier University which people thought was in bad taste, but most of the protestors where Xavier fans. UC fans loved the action because deep inside all of us is a blood lust that knows victory is secure when you conquer the will of your opponent.

Now here it is years later and the bad blood between UC and Xavier has boiled for many years stirred up by the media, both schools helped fuel that animosity because they know that sports is how they recruit new students to their institutions. National coverage of the Shootout means high enrollment, and controversy ensures that ESPN will cover the game year after year, because such animosity is good for ratings, because that’s what people want to see.

I’m surprised this Cross-town Shootout hasn’t erupted into violence before this year, because it is that tenuous. But this year, once the violence happened, I am surprised that so many people are upset by the violence. What did they think was going to happen? What did they think was going to happen with all the tension put on that game year after year? I mean Xavier had the game won by over 20 points in the closing minutes of the game and Xavier had all it’s starters in the game to show that it had its foot on the throat of UC. Xavier was going in for the kill, which angered the UC players. So a fight broke out because there was a lot of pride on the line.

The real hypocrisy of our day was revealed in the wake of that historic shootout game between UC and Xavier Universities. The two schools got what they were looking for, a game that people will return to watch next year with great ratings. A sporting event that distracted everyone’s attention for an afternoon and made the parents who are paying extraordinarily high tuition rates for these schools feel some sense of pride in the value of their investment. If the parents can’t see how the college education they are investing in will help their child in the future, they at least get the sense of being a part of the great battle between two rival schools.

But the greater static pattern of the intentions behind higher education is to teach pacifism and socialism to the participants so that the American people can be easily conquered by enemies who are embedded into our society. The universities are in the quandary of needing the violence of competition to help sell their product to the public, but their real intention is to weaken our society so it will fall under the umbrella of UN control.

Saying such a thing is not a stretch of credibility. When President Woodrow Wilson former president of Princeton University proposed the League of Nations, the American people who were rugged individualists rejected Wilson’s idea, and the wrath of anger from the voting public was taken out on Governor Cox of Ohio when he sought the presidency after Wilson and was voted down largely because he supported a League of Nations concept under the endorsement of Wilson. Americans didn’t want to be a part of such a thing. Now, only 100 years later, Americans are ready to accept the idea of a United Nations because they have been taught in public school and college that America’s future is in a unification with Europe and a gradual acceptance of European Socialism. We were also taught to look at pacifists who use hunger strikes and non-violent protests of Civil Disobedience to express our displeasure. The reason is so that our resistance and strategy to that resistance will be fundamentally wrong, allowing an enemy to win over us in victory, and yes America has many enemies.

To demonstrate this idea so it can be clearly seen remember when Barack Obama ran his first campaign protesting against the violence and torture in Guantanamo Bay but today is on the cusp of signing into law the NDAA act that allows for the torture of American people? Don’t you see what is happening? Is it not on the wall for all to see? Is it not as obvious as the computer screen in front of you? Can’t you reach out and touch it so you can know in your mind that it’s real?

Face it, your education institutions even when they use violence and sports to help unify the minds of their alumni, faculty, and students the true intention is to undo the American mind into something that can be controlled. That was the objective from the outset of the twentieth century and it holds today and can be heard in the apologies of the players for both schools and the coaches. Because the static patterns of the institutions themselves have pushed back against the dynamic of sports by reclaiming pacifism as the goal of the institutions. The goal of sports is to win. The goal of a battle is to win. The goal of an act of strategy is to defeat your opponent and if violence breaks out, it’s part of the deal. The goal of higher education is not to win however, it’s to make mush out of the minds of the participants, and to reprogram them into pacifists who can be conquered quickly by the forces of existence who desire to rule the world. The goal of college is not enlightenment; otherwise so many people who graduate would not be so stupid. Believe me, I’ve been there, I know. I actually lived on the campus of UC for a number of years and I know what it’s like. I know many professors and their political beliefs. I know who runs what and what their intentions are. Those personalities are who sit in the boxes at the Cross-town Shootout and hope that nobody notices what they are really after. They hope and pray every day of their lives that people will just keep their eyes on the scoreboard, on the stats of their favorite players and that the violence of competition stays within the acceptable parameters to feed the blood lust of the public just enough to keep the money flowing and the entertainment value high without compromising the strategy of International Socialism for which they are completely committed to. If you have any doubt of that, click this link:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/12/02/socialist-international-bringing-an-end-to-america-as-we-know-it-by-design/

Yes, while I enjoyed the exploits of Mel Levitt from over a decade ago, the stats from those games mean nothing now. And the energy spent watching those games are something I will never get back. So it I allowed myself to use my time on those activities where it diverted me from learning what’s going on elsewhere, I would have committed a sin to the nation. But I didn’t. I enjoyed sports as an entertainment venue that is here one moment, and gone the next. But I can see that a majority of the masses out there cannot do this, they allow their minds to become distracted by these sports while enemies have moved against us, and now our freedom is threatened by a government who can’t balance a budget, is trying to kill our economy by not approving new energy sources, and is openly creating law to arrest and torture American citizens. Instead our attention is on whether or not UC should have engaged in a fight with Xavier and whether or not charges should be filed against the players.

What a quandary!

Kepler — 22 is Discovered by NASA: The pivot point of human history

with 12 comments

A marvelous discovery was made by NASA, a new earth like planet called Kepler -22 was discovered by the $600 million Kepler observatory and is the first hint of what is to come regarding space exploration.  It has long been suspected that there are many unknown planets in space that will be discovered by this new space oriented observatory.  To date it appears that there are 2,326 potential planets that have been discovered within the first 16 months of Kepler’s observations.  Darryl Parks of 700 WLW discusses this exciting planetary find in a very fun broadcast on his radio program where he makes the information of how this planet impacts the everyday person understandable for those who don’t normally pay attention to news of a cosmic significance. 

To see the original press conference from NASA you can watch it below.  NASA is a government organization that I believe is the only one that actually is a good investment of our tax dollars.   Where I complain and point out the many discrepancies of all other government programs and how they are inclined to always fail, NASA is the one really big bright spot that gives back to our society much more than we put into it.  For an article about just how much NASA has given us refer to the piece I wrote around the time of the last Space Shuttle mission:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/07/01/the-ghost-town-of-kerr-city-a-metaphor-for-planet-earth/

The rest of government seems obsessed with socialism which permeates virtually every activity and causes government to fail as a workable organization in virtually every capacity.  The reason governments enjoy socialism is because it benefits their ideology of being members of a superior political class.  Capitalism does not benefit career politicians.  Socialism does and that’s why they have been using it to virtually rob the wealth and resources of every organization they touch. 

I have reported to you dear reader many exciting developments in the realm of science that are very beneficial to a much brighter tomorrow for all of us.  The reason I am so angry with public education and the socialism that it teaches, as well as how government also subscribes to that failed political philosophy is because socialism is very corrosive to innovation, which are the needed components to continue with the kind of discovery that delivered us to this age of exploration and made Kepler observatory a reality in the first place.  To my mind socialism on a global scale is holding back Skycar travel which I have spoken in great detail about.  It is preventing regenerative medicine because socialism has made deals with the current pharmaceutical companies to maintain the current profit structure.  I have reported wonders in horticulture only to have socialism prevent food supply in agriculture.   I have spoken about the future of space travel and how deregulation at the level of NASA will create an explosion of off-world industry.  I have spoken at great length of the education options in innovation but the socialism of the teachers unions prevent innovation from being discussed.  I have spoken about how the archeology of our age is completely wrong and new discoveries are begging for attention, but the socialism of the university system prevents new information from being accepted into the fossil record.  I have demonstrated completely unexplored islands in the Pacific Ocean that hold keys to human civilization’s past, that are not even officially explored scientifically, I have brought to light the fossil record of just my home state of Ohio and how a species of giant human has been unearthed, yet the socialism of the universities and museums are not sure how to report the new findings since they don’t fit into established theories.  You can read some of these articles below for review.  (YES, I WROTE THEM ALL)

PRIVATIZATION OF SPACE!

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/03/11/the-space-race-is-just-beginning-as-the-space-shuttles-end/

Even though many who read here know this site as an anti-tax site, as an education reform site, as a whistle-blower site, my anger at all those government entities which are the targets of my complaints are because they stand in the way of scientific understanding and invention.  I see them as standing in the way of where mankind is, and where it needs to go and I am at war with their ignorance.  Even if I am the only member of that war on my side I will gladly take on every ignorant socialists there is because they are in my way to arriving at the human evolution that is our destiny. 

The discovery of Keplar – 22 is a big deal.  To put it in perspective, Keplar – 22 demonstrates that there are other earth-like planets out there, and the human race can continue on when earth ends, which it will eventually.  There is no question in my mind that much of the strange archeology our society has discovered, has it’s roots in a civilization much like ours who around 100,000 years ago saw earth from one of these sister planets that we share in this small arm of the Milky Way that is 600 to 1000 light years across and decided to attempt to explore our planet.  To understand how big everything really is and to begin to wrap your mind around inter-dimensional travel, watch this video:

Those other planets sent beings to check out earth, to land and interact with our culture at that time just like we are planning at this very moment to visit Kepler – 22.  If we could, we would.  There is no doubt in my mind that these other planets who are probably 2000 to 10,000 years more advanced than we are now have figured out how to travel to deep space and were able to visit us.  They explored us for their own benefit and returned back to their home planet to report what they saw here.  But while they were here, just like we will when learn to travel in the same fashion, they have a natural effect on the cultures they study just by being there. 

If you want to understand how space travel will evolve you can learn a lot by this documentary.  The last quarter of that documentary talks specifically about interstellar travel, the kind of travel that we will have to uncover before we can ever entertain traveling to places like Kepler – 22.  And it is possible, and we will figure it out, as sure as you are reading this.  In the documentary they introduce tachyons which are a hypothetical subatomic particle that always moves faster than light. In the language of special relativity, a tachyon would be a particle with space-like four-momentum and imaginary proper time. A tachyon would be constrained to the space-like portion of the energy-momentum graph. Therefore, it cannot slow down to subluminal speeds.
You can read more about tachyon’s here:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tachyon

There is no question in my mind that civilization in our own past used anti-gravity devices to build massive structures all over the earth.  Somewhere along the line of human evolution we lost this knowledge.  If we understood it once, we can relearn the skill and uncover it once again.  When this happens escape velocity off earth will no longer be a problem.  And once we can perform science in space and travel becomes cheaper there, exploration into tachyon technology will be within reach, and from there, we will be able to travel to Kepler – 22 and all the new planets that the Kepler observatory is about to discover. 

The reason that societies fail however is they generally collapse on themselves when they become too top-heavy with government power, and the thief of science is always some variation of socialism.  The fact that anti-gravity technology existed on earth at one time and has been lost to all future science, probably in the burning of the library in Alexandria which I spoke about during the recent riots in Egypt demonstrates how artifacts and ancient understanding can be erased forever by the vandals of war.  See that article here:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/02/02/the-real-crime-in-egypt-history-lost-to-ideology-and-quests-for-power/

The decision of our day is are we going to look forward to even more scientific discoveries like we are experiencing in Kepler – 22 or are we going to worry about the pensions of public workers who simply expand government?  Are we going to continue to work all our lives for an opportunity to retire and finally become free once our bodies are broken beyond repair, or are we going to embrace regenerative medicine and live for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years?  Are we going to focus on global warming for a planet that is going to be gone in 5 billion years anyway, or are we going to start the process of leaving mother earth and finally move out on our own as a human race………..I mean isn’t it time? 

Socialism is that overprotective mother who never wants her children to leave home, and progressives are those spoiled children who still cleave to their mothers breasts for milk, even though they are fully grown adults.  If left to socialism, no child will ever leave their mother and they will die still cleaving to their mothers warm embrace, never to have lived, never to have explored, never to have loved, never to have sorrow, but they will be safe in their mothers embrace.  Those who act in such a way are socialists and they do not speak for people like me who want nothing to do with that mother.  I want with every essence of my being to jump into space; to capture the mysteries of the tachyon’s so I can travel to far away stars and see what adventure awaits us there.  And for those scared children called progressive socialists who cleave to mother earth and say, “but you will die soon…..why worry about such things?”  My response would be, “I don’t want to live forever, but why can’t I live for 500 to 1000 years.  Noah was 950 years old.  Moses was 120 years old, it is obvious that human beings knew something then that they have forgotten as empires rose and fell around the concept of socialism.” We are on the cusp of being able to repair our bodies indefinitely, so why wouldn’t we?  And why would we not reach for the stars instead of a pension check and a slow death in retirement in a Florida condo? 

All that really is holding us back is socialism and other collective oriented philosophies.  Subscribers of those political theories are short-sighted scared children who wish to keep the world at a constant that they are comfortable with.  And such people do not have the right, or obligation to hold me to their lack of vision.  There are many Kepler – 22’s out there and I want to see human kind explore them all, even if it takes 5000 years to do it.  Our society is on the cusp of that kind of breakthrough.  The pivot point from which we all rest in the other direction is the kind of social de-evolution that will erase all the breakthroughs we’ve experienced of late and drift back into the mentality of the dark ages, which is what progressive socialism intends, to the demise of us all. 

The assumption of our day is that human kind will always advance forward, but that is not the case.  The evidence of modern archeology shows that our distant relatives actually knew more than we currently do about a great many things, and it is the cultures of empires that erased those sciences under the rule of tyranny.  And as we have just discovered or rediscovered a new planet very similar to our own earth, that same tyranny of the past is upon us again and threatens to halt our progress into a slow regression of thought and innovation.  The decision is ours to make, and the merit of that decision will determine thousands of years of future human existence.
