DIGITAL-AGE DECADENCE

Queen’s “We Are The Champions” was the graduation theme song for the class of 1984 at Murphy High School, in Mobile, Alabama.  It was probably the graduation theme song for numerous classes before that, since it was released in 1977.  I was among six commencement speakers chosen by the senior and junior classes for the ceremony—at which the Murphy High School chorus sang the song, accompanied by the Murphy High School band.

“We Are The Champions” is not even one of my favorite Queen songs, let alone my favorite songs, in general.  The lyrics are simpler than those of my favorite Queen songs—and the music is not nearly as complex.  Yet note the passionate singing of Freddie Mercury—and the unforgettable instrumentation of the band, particularly the electric-guitar artistry.  And note the raw, wild, real, personal, sincere, human interaction between the band and the audience.

Yes, this is the kind of music that was played at graduation ceremonies and sporting events before the Digital Age.

 

 

 

 

No, this is not a commercial—this is the kind of music that is played at graduation ceremonies and sporting events in this Digital Age.  There is no band—all of the music is digitally programmed, and electronically produced.  And the lyrics are not just simple—they’re totally simplistic, and indescribably trite.  The singing isn’t passionate at all—it’s completely contrived.  And there is no interaction with an audience, because the only audience is an unseen collective of smartphone addicts—none of whom are even interacting with each other.

This is Digital-Age decadence.

THE MOST PAINFUL LESSON I HAVE EVER LEARNED

If it smells like fish, don’t eat it unless it is fish.

TO BE CONSERVATIVE, YOU MUST DECLARE YOUR INDEPENDENCE

The Democratic Party has not been conservative, at all, since November 22, 1963.

The Republican Party has not been conservative, at all, since June 22, 2015.

As long as your voter registration, and your loyalty, remain with the Democratic Party, you cannot be conservative.

As long as your voter registration, and your loyalty, remain with the Republican Party, you cannot be conservative.

We independent voters are the only conservatives remaining, in the United States today.

And you cannot be conservative unless you join us, by changing your voter registration, and your loyalty, to independent—no party affiliation.

To be conservative, you must declare your independence from the Democratic Party and the Republican Party.

To be conservative, you must declare your independence. 

AFTER ALL, THAT WAS HIS JOB

Billy Graham was not homophobic—Billy Graham was honest about what the Bible said about homosexuality.

Billy Graham was not anti-Semitic—Billy Graham was honest about what the Bible said about the Jews.

It sickens me how secular liberals condemn religious conservatives for doing the same thing they do so much more frequently and effectively—cherry-pick the Bible.

Secular liberals may not agree with Billy Graham’s statements about homosexuality, and about the Jews—but they have no right to condemn the late evangelist for remaining true to the Bible.

After all, that was his job.

GUNS ARE NOT TOYS

Guns are not toys.

This is something Nimrata Randhawa Haley has never learned.

This is something Dylann Roof has never learned.

This is something no politician has ever learned.

This is something no mass shooter has ever learned.

Guns are not toys—they are dangerous weapons that must be respected.

Those who have no respect for guns have no business handling them at all—whether they be mindless kids, or godless politicians.

Guns are not toys.

LET’S PUT A STOP TO THIS

PALESTINIAN PRESIDENT ABBAS: NIMRATA RANDHAWA HALEY IS A TRAITOR TO OUR UNITED STATES—SHE DOES NOT SPEAK FOR US AMERICANS.

“RT@USUN: ‘Our negotiators are sitting right behind me, ready to talk.  We will not chase after you.  The choice, Mr. President, is yours.'”

WHY THIS DOUBLE STANDARD?

History is biased, because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

The Modern State of Israel has been the victor since 1948—so history is written by it.

Yet in this Digital Age, you no longer accept the biased history of the victorious Modern State of Israel, without question—you are finally listening to the history of the vanquished Palestine.

 

History is biased, because history is written by the victors—not the vanquished.

The United States of America has been the victor since 1865—so history is written by it.

And in this Digital Age, you still accept the biased history of the victorious United States of America, without question—you are still refusing to listen to the history of the vanquished Confederate States of America.

In fact, since June 22, 2015, you have been allowing politicians to censor your Confederate flags and monuments, without your consent—thereby perpetuating the biased history written by the United States of America, and burying the history of the vanquished Confederate States of America even more deeply and certainly.

Why is that?

Why this double standard?

IT’S HER OP-ED—AND WE’VE SEEN HER SELF-PROMOTION BEFORE

“RT@USUN: Please take a moment to read our latest Op-Ed on Iran’s dangerous destabilizing behavior:”

“I know you’re a strong supporter of the Second Amendment–is there anything about this situation that makes you think, ‘Okay, should we rethink–is it time for some kind of change?'”
“ANY TIME THERE IS A TRAUMATIC SITUATION, PEOPLE WANT SOMETHING TO BLAME–THEY ALWAYS WANT SOMETHING TO GO AFTER…”

“THE HATE-FILLED MURDERER WHO MASSACRED OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHARLESTON [SOUTH CAROLINA] HAS A SICK AND TWISTED VIEW OF [THE CONFEDERATE FLAG THAT FLIES ON THE STATEHOUSE GROUNDS IN COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA]”
“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”

“[Nikki Haley] is one of the savviest, most cunning and cutthroat political operators we’ve ever seen.”

TAKE A STAND NOW—BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE

Gun ownership has always been regulated in the United States—but by the states, not the federal government.

It is not the federal government’s right or responsibility to regulate gun ownership—it is the states’ right and responsibility to regulate gun ownership.

In the wake of yet another deadly mass shooting in Florida, it is the State of Florida’s right and responsibility to pass new laws—or to simply take better care that the gun laws already in place are better enforced—it is not the federal government’s right or responsibility to regulate gun ownership.

This is why you should despise Nikki Haley as much as I do, and should do everything you can to have her removed from President Trump’s cabinet.

Nikki Haley (Nimrata Randhawa Haley) is ultimately responsible for every mass shooting since June 22, 2015.

Rather than examine South Carolina’s gun laws, to see if there was anything she could do, as Governor of South Carolina, to make it any more difficult for bastards like Dylann Roof to acquire guns, Nikki Haley called for the censorship of a Confederate battle flag from a Confederate memorial monument on June 22, 2015—then issued an executive order for the censorship of that flag, on July 9, 2015—without the consent of the people of South Carolina, of all races and ethnicities, to whom that Confederate battle flag belonged.

And because of this exploitation of Dylann Roof’s mass murder of nine innocent churchgoers by South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, it remained as easy as ever to acquire a handgun in the State of South Carolina—but impossible to obtain a Confederate flag, of any design, in the United States—overnight.

Nikki Haley has never been held accountable for this, because Republican voters have always loved her—and Democratic voters have loved her ever since June 22, 2015.

As Dylann Roof serves nine consecutive life sentences for the nine lives he took on June 17, 2015, the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley serves herself as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations—and lives it up in an elaborate and elegant condominium at 50 United Nations Plaza in Manhattan.

This is a miscarriage of justice that only President Trump can legally rectify—and that only you can petition President Trump to legally rectify.

Contact President Trump yourself—as I have, nine times already—or sign my petition to President Trump to remove the Dishonorable Nikki R. Haley from his cabinet:

This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.  And this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is a practice of targeting flags and monuments representative of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech—simply to avoid any discussion of our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

It is a destructive practice of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without their constituents’ consent.

And because the overwhelming majority of these state and local politicians are Republicans—following Republican Nikki Haley’s lead—this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is a subversive shell game played by the Republican Party, with just a few Democratic politicians playing along—and with an overwhelming majority of Democratic voters being taken in.

It doesn’t matter how you feel about the historical Confederate States of America—it only matters that historical flags and monuments belong to you, the people, and politicians have no right to censor your historical flags and monuments, without your consent.  

Ever since Republican Nikki Haley started this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, the number of mass shootings in the United States has increased—and the death toll from mass shootings in the United States has increased.

Because Nimrata Randhawa Haley has never been held accountable for her exploitation of Dylann Roof’s crime—and neither has any other Republican or Democratic state or local politician who has followed Nikki Haley’s lead, by censoring his or her constituents’ historical flags and monuments, without his or her constituents’ consent.

When you don’t hold politicians accountable for their political crimes, the consequences of their political crimes continue, indefinitely.

Take a stand now—before it’s too late.
