Welcome new followers! Thanks so much for following me.
I spent so much effort and time creating novels that I am afraid I am way behind the eight ball where marketing is concerned. Blogging is marketing. Blogging is also a nice way to get to know you, and you, me.
Here is where you get to know me outside of my novels, and I can get to know you if, you will take a moment and say hello. While English is my chosen language and the only one that I know fluently, I love to speak with those who read my writings or would like to engage in some dialogue of a philosophical nature.
Many of you are fellow bloggers, and that is wonderful. I love reading about what you are up to.
Those of you who follow me know that I don’t shy away from subjects that are controversial.
I had some thoughts about the recent events here in the US that are troubling. I sent out a tweet the day of the riots in Virginia and some “person” asked me rather snarkily if I just started watching the news. My tweet simply stated that “I was amazed at the level of evil that we are capable of.”
I do not respond to snark, or jerks, or what have you. His or her loss really but I refuse to get into the dirt with them. Keep it civil, respectful etc., no problem. I don’t require you to agree with me. I do require that you are respectful.
I despise the media and have for years. To them it is all about ratings and as a people no matter what country you happen to be in, that is propaganda. The media may have started this simply for ratings but when you look at the “who is who charts” and find that someone way up in the media food chain is tied to some government official or worse yet, some mega multi conglomerate “special interests” group, one has to wonder.
No, I don’t watch the news, it is a waste of time. Mostly it is either opinion or conjecture or just damned lies. The cable companies have hundreds of channels to fill with something from swamp people to DIY this or that. They all compete for ratings. When you say or promote audacious programming for ratings, the viewer should probably use their brain and think about the validity of what they are watching.
When children’s programming has messages in it which are politically charged, one has to wonder if you really need TV at all! We need to teach critical thinking, not indoctrination.
I found a twitter post that was a recruiting tool for paid protestors for this event over the weekend. If the riots had paid actors in there to stir things up, that is wrong on so many levels of wrong. People were supposedly paid $25 an hour to go and egg on the protestors and take whatever side needed to be egged on whether it was the Antifa or the Nazi’s or KKK or even BLM. It is kind of like the devil had a hand in it.
There were tweets of pictures of two men who were AntiFa one time, and Nazi’s the next, same two men. WTF? Are we being played by someone with a god complex?
Somone died, as emotions are raw as was the purpose of the agitators to make sure that emotions were kept raw. Who paid them? Who thinks it a good idea to send paid protestors to go to these protest and make things worse?
No, I don’t watch the news. There are anarchist everywhere, and someone with deep pockets is funding it to make sure it keeps us all divided. If I want to spur you or anyone into action, all I have to do is trigger you on some emotional level and bingo!
I prefer intellectual, logical debate. Keeping an open mind, I might learn something and make some new friends along the way. Even if we don’t agree we can agree to disagree and remain, friends, can we not?
When you fail to listen to the other side of the same coin, you will never understand why they do what they do or say what they say. You might also learn that you are wrong, so it pays to listen.
Ignorance without EGO is an opportunity learn. Ignorance with EGO is simply propaganda.
So what was this all about anyway? What was the protest about, how did it start and who was there?
It started out with the proposed demolition of a Statue. The White Nationalist party went to protest the removal of this statue peacefully. Ever since Dylan Roof shot up the church to start a race war, we have been practicing revisionist history. That is exactly what it is but, the left calls it something else.
History is history no matter what it is. To remove statues and flags is nonsense but you might see that differently.
Dylan Roof may have started more than he ever could have hoped for as this gave more fuel to a racist few who see racism everywhere. The interesting part of this whole story is somehow it is blamed on Trump and by proxy anyone who happens to be a conservative.
History 101 TWScott’s abbreviated version.
The first Republican president was the 16th, and for those that don’t know, that was Abraham Lincoln.
He ran on equal rights for all colors of peoples and of course to free the slaves from bondage. After he completed that task, he was gunned down in a theatre by guess who, a Democrat, who was not fond of his idea of freeing the slaves or allowing them to vote. The VP took over who ran on the same ticket with Lincoln who also happens to be a Democrat. Talk about reaching across the aisle.
Andrew Johnson, the 17th president, was not fond of Lincolns ideas and halted much of what he had started. Democrats started the KKK and were very much against freeing the slaves or allowing them to vote. The Democrats tried to stop them from voting by charging them a poll tax. Many Democrats in the south did not want them to vote so they decided to institute a literacy or intelligence test before you could vote.
Remember, it was illegal to teach a slave to read much less anything else other than picking cotton or other menial task. Knowledge is power, and the Democrats knew it.
Fast forward to LBJ the 36th president who was as much a racist that ever was. While history is being re-written on many web sites, the truth is that since the blacks were allowed to vote he was going to make sure that they voted Democrat. Turning his black hating attention to using them as useful idiots, he pushed through legislation that would keep the black man down for centuries by buying their vote with just enough in the way of entitlements to keep them from having any desire to do better for themselves.
Removing their desire for self-improvement by turning them into a welfare society, he was quoted as saying, That will keep them N****gers voting Democrat for the next 200 years!
Now you can get all upset, but those are the facts. Bear in mind that you might have to go to the library and do some research as revisionist are indeed changing the history on individual websites. Even the History channel web site has been altered leaving out the quote that he was rather famous for making! While admitting he was a racist, they don’t spell it out, as I have here or as history has many times.
So who else was in Virginia and why were they there?
Antifa was there who are extreme left-wing miscreants who are in fact, true fascist. Their strong opinions on a misguided philosophy by someone who is bad at history, which pretty much defines them as fascist. That is rather funny in an odd way if you think about it.
Antifa was there to stop the White Nationist, not to be confused with the Nazi’s or KKK, also lefty organizations. The Nazi’s and Antifa were working hand in hand which was rather strange and along with BLM to go after the White Nationist (conservatives). The white nationalists are saying history is sacrosanct, you don’t alter what you don’t like, hence the protest. If you want to erect another statue, buy the land, pay an artist and have the thing situation on your land and dedicate it but, you don’t simply rewrite history that you don’t like!
The simplicity of the argument is you don’t subtract from history but, you can add to it as long is it is truthful.
Then, of course, you had the professional agitators who came and made sure that it got ugly.
No, I don’t watch the news, but I do go and get the facts! The news is so biased that you cannot believe them at all. If they tell me it is a pretty day outside, I am going to look to make sure. They have an agenda. Ratings are their first agenda but remember this; there are many things one must do to destroy a country, or take it over.
First, you divide everyone in every possible way. With social media, it is easy as there are robots on Twitter putting out hate word salad. Then you have the paid for trolls who spout out hate garbage and get those that are already polarized to retweet it, to their friends and so on. If you tell a lie or hear a lie often enough, you believe it. Many who listen to comedians are regularly exposed to garbage, based on hate.
The next thing you do to control a country is, control the narrative, in this case, the media and of course the beloved people on the silver screen who we know so intimately as we have been in their bedrooms. That, of course, is the fallacy of it, but they depend upon you thinking that way. Trust me; you don’t know them! If you did, you might be surprised to learn just how vapid and narcissistic that some of them are.
Once you control the media and keep the masses divided, you get someone, oh like Hitler to come in and identify with you and point out all of the problems in the world and place the blame on someone and offer to fix it all for your vote and a minor re-write of your constitution. If you think this is some dystopian plot for one of my books, I only wish it was. That is the plan of someone with a huge megalomaniac, god complex, and deep deep pockets! Do you think it is Trump? Do you think it is Putin? Who would you suspect of such an evil plot to transform America into something it is not?
That beloved Movie star that most girls dream about, Mathew McConaughey said not long ago, “that second amendment, we can live without that.” Just a minor rewrite of your Constitution, right?
No, Mathew, you body guard surrounded misguided fool, we need our second amendment, and our first, and all the rest of them. They were written by people much wiser than you. Memorize your script, remain sexy, and emote; so your misguided sycophants who think they know you can fantasize.
Just food for thought here but Trump, the American President, is your president if you are an American. He ran on draining the swamp. At his inauguration, he stood a few feet from President Obama and said that the Washington elites are screwing you the people, and I am here to stop it! Say what you want, but that took balls! The swamp monsters are fighting back, which is what we see in the media daily.
Those on both sides are fighting him because they don’t want to be exposed for the frauds that they are.
“As a senator, you don’t spend millions of your dollars for a job that pays $100K a year! That is insanity unless of course, you are going to steal from the taxpayer’s piggie banks, all that you can.”
Ever wonder why many of those senators are now millionaires living the good life while filling you full of lies? Why are they still working in their 70’s? Why not take their millions and enjoy what years they have left? Riddle me that Batman?
“If you become wealthy as a public servant, you are most probably a thief or crook.”
America, your enemy is not Trump, it is the media and the career politicians.
No, not a Trumpian, just a patriot who reads one hell of a lot, when I am not writing one hell of a lot. I think about things like “why.”
Occam’s razor comes into play with many of these things, but you must have a little critical thought process, and be willing to watch something other than the MSM and research things.
As always I am interested in your thoughts.
Feel free to follow me and oh, by the way, buy one or more of my books. I really want to quit my day job, and I need you to help me with that. Forward my stuff to your friends. Retweet my tweets. Write a glowing review for me …
If you have a topic that you would like talk about, leave me a note. I might have an opinion that could surprise and delight you. Or, I might just give you a recipe for Banana Bread. 🙂
Much Love -TW
