The Sad State of Contemporary Morality

February 12, 2018 Leave a comment

We can read the decline of social morality by observing the tone of commercial advertising and products. In the U.S.A., the head of state is a proven, psychopathic liar and traitor bereft of morality, yet he was chosen by selfish fools to be head of state.

What does it tell you that the long-time board game, Monopoly, now has a version that is designed to please people that choose to cheat?

The idea of winning by cheating is a sad circumstance to suggest to naïve children. There are television commercials and programs in which one person takes advantage of another by nefarious means. It’s subtle, like Mom tricking her son so she can snatch one of his potato chips. Or Dad claims to need to pick something up at the store, so he can go for a solo drive in his new car. Another husband hides from his wife that he receives kick-back money from his insurance policy so he can enjoy the bonus personally.

Face it, contemporary society sucks. Cold people struggling to get more than their share occupy every opportunity to cheat.

Do you?

Women are not Ornaments

February 6, 2018 Leave a comment

pri_68161917      Many fans of Formula One auto racing are upset that the iconic ‘grid girls’ are to be discontinued. I am pleased that the girls will be gone, because they should not stand in rows, dressed in identical, sexy outfits. I raced sports cars when I was younger, and I always felt that it was not a good idea to have women in the pit areas unless they were part of a team, working with the crew in a real job.

The grid girls are just a distraction for fans of the sport. Race time is a time of intense focus and concentration, and women in the pits for the sake of ornamentation are clearly out of place. When watching a Formula One event, I have always wondered why the pretty ladies demeaned themselves in that way. They are doing nothing other than perhaps holding a sign with a number on it, or some such thing. They are superfluous.

The smiles are pretty, the legs are lovely, but neither has anything to do with the very serious and expensive event that is a Formula One race. The women are obviously instructed to smile prettily and applaud vigorously as the sweating drivers hurry past them to the cool down rooms. I have never seen any driver even notice the girls. They know that the smiles and applause are just set up for the viewing audience, and have no real meaning to the participants in the event.

I am pleased that I will no longer feel sorry for the girls that were positioned on the grid and in the entrance hall to the cool down room. I am sorry that they are losing whatever small pay they received for that humble occupation. The truth is that only women who are either driving the car or working as part of the crew should be in the pits of any motor race. Just the same as men are not a good fit in a crocheting group. Men should be there if they are fans of crocheting and participating in the craft, but not to be stand-by ornaments.

In this modern age, no job need be gender-specific, but being good looking and standing holding a number sign is not a worthy career goal. Ladies are welders and builders and lawyers and doctors as good as any man can be. They are well-advised to build careers rather than be pretty and hold signs. Any job that can be replaced by a post on a base is not a job for an intelligent person, male or female.

Organized Control

February 2, 2018 Leave a comment

They’re always at it. I refer to the oligarchs and their minions, which include a vast number of people in various levels of power and control. For instance, I’ve recently seen promotions for a big television presentation based on “The Kennedys”. These are people with real control; the so called American Royalty.

I find it interesting that a handsome young, new Kennedy, Joseph Kennedy III is featured in a prominent position on television. He followed the State of the Union broadcast during a week of advertising “The Kennedys” which is his family. Just a lucky coincidence? I doubt it. The never-ending battle for wealth, power and control leaks into every tiny crevasse to leave no stone unturned in their determination to advance their agenda. Watch for further appearances by the Kennedy kid as his family’s control paves his way to power.

The Kennedys are honoured as a first family of the USA. This is the way in the USA – lots of money means quality. Donald Trump is proof that’s not true. The guy is a lying, perhaps wealthy swine. But now to the Kennedys. I’m sure the mob did the hits on Jack Kennedy and Bobbie Kennedy. The mob got them elected and then they went back on their deal with the mob. Imagine the money and power that put Jack Ruby front and center to kill Lee Harvey Oswald before he could tell his story.

Jack and Bobbie Kennedy agreed to lay of the pursuit of the Mob in return for the Mob’s help the Kennedys reach their selfish goals. Old Joe Kennedy the first was in bed with the Mob from the outset. He built the Kennedy fortune in all variety of corruption and thievery, and then they became the so called aristocracy in Boston, where everybody pretends to quality.

When the Kennedy brothers continued to hassle the Mob, in direct rejection of their previous agreement, they asked for assassination. The arrogance of the wealthy, powerful Kennedys led them to believe they were above retribution by the Mob. After all, they were the family leading the USA, controlling the stock market and the military. They thought, perhaps, that the Irish were superior to the Italians. They all began as desperate immigrants.

Keep in mind that it’s not easy to amass a huge fortune. It takes wisdom, intelligence, luck and force. Force can mean beatings, or threats, or bribery or any of a number of other ‘convincers’. The Kennedys, like all of the oligarchs, are lying, corrupt thieves.

To Shame the FBI

February 2, 2018 Leave a comment

If it is not already obvious to you, the so called President of the USA is mentally unbalanced. Have faith that the FBI is doing its proper job in the proper way. The so called president, on the other hand, has done nothing proper. Not only has he done no proper act as so called president, he’s been a lying thief all his life. I suspect that his parents and grandparents were similarly corrupt, as are his children.

It’s sad that people can only revel in the increase in the new jobs and pay scale. The reason for the improvements is the desecration of ecological priorities. Trump believes it’s okay to filth the waters and poison the earth as part of his money grab for himself and his disgusting cohorts.

It has always been a problem when good people associate with bad people. The bad people never rise toward the good people. Instead, the good people sink to the depth of the low, greedy, selfish, dishonest bad people.

The obvious reason the executive branch needs to discredit the FBI is to set up a fake reason why Trump should not be arrested. The documentation will show that Trump’s evil deeds are provable, and the FBI’s deeds are proven proper deeds. Be prepared, when charges are laid at last, for loud declarations that the FBI is corrupt. They’ll claim the FBI has been against Trump from the outset. Maybe they have been, because Trump’s been breaking the law and ignoring the constitution from day one.

We’ve all seen Trump’s uncouth, loutish behavior for more than a year. His actions can be compared to that of Adolf Hitler as he rose to seize power illegally. Trump and company denials that will come when the FBI finally strikes are to be ignored. We’ve all seen the ease with which Trump et al can lie. Remember the rare truth in the interview in which Trump said that he fired Comey to interfere with the Russian collusion investigation.

If I was a praying man, I’d pray for the sight of Trump doing the ‘perp walk’ from courthouse to jailhouse. I’m not a praying man, so I just want to see justice done. I’m a Canadian in Canada, so I have no connection to the USA government, not even a vote. I just hope the deluded USA citizens that favor Trump wake up to the truth very soon.

The Lesser Evil

January 27, 2018 Leave a comment

The lesser evil is still evil. We don’t have to accept the lesser evil as the best we can do. I refer to every endeavors, including highly educated professions and every other level of society down to careless welfare recipients. Facing two plates of food, neither of which we enjoy is a logical case. If one plate is fried chicken skin and the other plate is beef liver, the liver would be chosen by those that don’t hate it and chicken skin would be chosen by those that can’t stand liver, for whatever reason.

The 2016 presidential election in the United States of America might be a case of the lesser evil being the greater evil. Many voters believed that Hilary Clinton is so evil that even Donald J. Trump appeared to be the lesser evil. As time flows on, however, it is revealed that so called President Trump is actually a psychopathic liar, a thief, an oligarch and a traitor. In hindsight, as evil as she is, Clinton would have been a better choice.

I usually watch true police and crime series on television. Most often, there is a police interrogation of a victim, a witness, or a suspect. There comes a time when an individual is asked about his or her relationship.

“It’s fine,” they say. “You know, there are fights and stuff, like every relationship.”

NO! Accepting a relationship in which some scrapping and shouting, and even hitting is not the lesser of any evil. It is an evil-bound relationship. If a person can’t find nearly constant peace and confidence in one’s special relationship, one might be settling for the lesser evil. Don’t do it.

There should be a relationship for you where expressions of love are spoken every day. Where you are put first by the other party and the other party is put first by you. The lesser evil is not good enough. You want the absence of stress, doubt, and evil. Get it!

You Don’t Know Their Burdens

January 26, 2018 Leave a comment

It’s rare to see a person on the street or on public transportation with a pleased or contented expression on his or her face. While observing people personally, we might wonder what our own facial expression is as we look around ourselves. It seems that people in public often do not look at each other.

We move among each other, but we do not encounter each other. I expect that our primitive primate senses govern our behavior. Perhaps eye to eye contact invites conflict, as it might among chimpanzees. Smiling at a person might be seen as a threat if one’s teeth are displayed. Sometimes, a smile at a person in a library or a restaurant can lead to verbal communication. That could lead to almost anything.

The hundreds of faces one might see in a single week are most likely to be sad or blank. We overlook the unwelcoming atmosphere because we know that each individual is carrying the facts of their lives with them. One might be planning what to make for dinner. Another might be concerned about a meeting coming up at their office. Others worry about sick friends, lost dogs, rent increases and anything else.

We move through our days, our faces showing our feelings. When it’s a lovely day and all is well in our own little world, there is peacefulness in our expression. When our own relationship with the significant other is in jeopardy, stress or concern is shown.

If we could master the art of compartmentalizing the matters in our lives, we might be able to always wear a peaceful expression by dwelling on the sweet parts of life.

Survival of the Sickest

January 20, 2018 Leave a comment

Most of us have watched nature programs, where predator and prey each struggle to live on. We’ve seen the lions stalking herds of wildebeest. They are looking for the weak one. Perhaps one has an injured leg, and limps to keep up with the herd. Perhaps a young wildebeest, just a few months old, would be the chosen victim. In any case, the victim is likely to be the weakest animal available.

This is nature’s wonderful sense of balance. Wildebeest and other herbivores proliferate at a rate that fulfills the needs of their carnivorous predators. The predators can proliferate and feed their families because the herbivores are available. Sometimes, there are weak sick animals that predators can more easily capture. This also assures that only the stronger, healthier animals will survive and breed stronger generations.

In most cases, the herd seems to be uninterested in the fate of the captured one. They use the opportunity to move easily away as a pride of lions skirmishes over the meal. Occasionally, a devoted female will try to protect its captured young. In most cases, the mother gives it up and moves off with the herd. They are able to just let it go as part of their life. On the other hand, there is the human species…

The human animal does not turn its back on its weakest. We support the needy and help the disabled. We do this as a society, through our government agencies and through religious and charitable missions.

I have to wonder if we didn’t care for the weaker among us and just carried on without them, would we have a stronger, healthier society? We do ignore some. We can’t easily help the people who insist that they live on the streets, even when offered comfort. They are the mentally and emotionally weaker people. We even help them to survive. The wildebeest would just move on and forget them. Are we weakening our bloodline?

We might feel disdain for the sickest among us, but we also have the power of thought. We can think that if not for the vagaries of life, there go I. Therefore, we help where help is needed.
