THE POSTHUMOUS EXTERMINATION OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES OF AMERICA IS DESTRUCTIVE TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA—AND IF YOU CARE AT ALL ABOUT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, YOU WILL DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO STOP THIS DESTRUCTION

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you—ask what you can do for your country.”

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America.

And when you do whatever you can to stop the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, you do something positive for the United States of America.

When you defend the Confederate States of America, of the past, you defend the United States of America, of the present.

When you stop politicians from censoring your historical American flags without your consent, you defend your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

And when you stop politicians from destroying your historical American monuments without your consent, you defend your First-Amendment right to freedom of speech.

I know that the late John F. Kennedy would have a problem with this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—that he would see how destructive it is to the United States of America.

Because John F. Kennedy cared about history, civics, and personal responsibility.

And if you care at all about history, civics, and personal responsibility, you will stop this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

If you care about America, you will save America from its own self-destruction.

You will stop every trend, tendency, and phenomenon that is destructive to the United States of America.

And this includes the posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—because it is destructive to the United States of America.

The posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and if you care at all about the United States of America, you will do whatever you can to stop this destruction.

RETURN OUR FIRST CONFEDERATE FLAG TO OUR FIVE FLAGS DISPLAYS—NOW

Escambia County Commissioner Doug Underhill,

You are nothing but a hypocrite in writing this:

“Good morning to all you marchers.  You are wrong.  My gun is not your problem, and my rights are not your business.  Your fears and your hate are a very real danger to our Constitution.  You are literally spending your Saturday demanding the government take away your rights.  Pathetic.”

On June 25, 2015, you gave in to this demand made by Escambia County Democratic Women’s Club President Dianne Krumel:

“I understand the flags are down, but I want to make it permanent.  I don’t want any chance of those flags going back up.”

You could have done the conservative thing, and voted to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in our Five Flags Displays.

But you did the neocon thing, instead—just as Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, and Lumon May did.  You bowed to the demands of that one wannabe politician.

And you can bet that same wannabe politician was proudly exploiting those schoolchildren on March 24.  After all, you did nothing but encourage her.

You have no right to post about your rights.  Because you violated our First Amendment right to freedom of speech on June 25, 2015—along with Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Lumon May, and especially Ashton Hayward.

I live just down the street from the Five Flags display in front of the Osceola Municipal Golf Course—and every time I leave my residence, I am reminded of your censorship of our First Confederate Flag, and every time I return to my residence, I am reminded of your censorship of our First Confederate Flag.  And I am tired of seeing this blatant violation of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Commissioner Underhill, you are despised in this county—along with Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Jeff Bergosh, Lumon May, and Ashton Hayward.

Yet you now lead the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, so you have more authority than ever before, to do the right thing.  You have more authority than ever before, to return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays.

You chose to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—without even letting us Escambia County residents vote on it.

Our Five Flags Displays do not belong to you.  They belong to all of us Escambia County residents, of all races and ethnicities.  Our First Confederate Flag did not belong to you either.  It belonged to all of us Escambia County residents, of all races and ethnicities.  And you had no right to censor our First Confederate Flag from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—any more than Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Wilson Robertson, Lumon May, or Ashton Hayward did.  You have no right to keep our First Confederate Flag censored from our Five Flags Displays, without our consent—any more than Grover C. Robinson IV, Steven Barry, Jeff Bergosh, Lumon May, or Ashton Hayward does.

Commissioner Underhill, you are a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar—just as Grover C. Robinson IV is, Steven Barry is, Wilson Robertson is, Jeff Bergosh is, Lumon May is, Ashton Hayward is, Malcolm Thomas is, David Morgan is, Mitch Landrieu is, LaToya Cantrell is, Marco Rubio is, Matt Gaetz is, Robert Bentley is, Kay Ivey is, Rick Scott is, Mike Signer is, Wes Bellamy is, Bob Corker is, Jerry Brown is, Chuck Schumer is, Maxine Waters is, Ajit Pai is, Donald Trump is, Hillary Clinton is, and especially that diabolical Nimrata Randhawa Haley is.

But you choose to be a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar—and you can choose not to be a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

You can return our First Confederate Flag to our Five Flags Displays—now.

SHE IS A PANDERING, SELF-SERVING, SOCIOPATHIC LIAR

“RT@USUN: Today in observance of the International Day of Remembrance of the Victims of Slavery we pay tribute to the over 10 million people who lost their lives and dignity at the hands of the slave trade…”

“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…”

“TODAY WE ARE HERE…TO SAY IT’S TIME TO MOVE THE FLAG…”

Nimrata Randhawa Haley pays no more tribute to the victims of the Transatlantic Slave Trade than she paid to the victims of the June 17, 2015, mass shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.

She is a pandering, self-serving, sociopathic liar.

52nd BIRTHDAY POST

As of 5:47 p.m. yesterday, I am 52 years old.

This was my second birthday since my sisters and brothers-in-law turned my parents against me on April 10, 2016.

And this was my first birthday without any hope of hearing from my father.

My sisters and brothers-in-law never told my father just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

And he went to his grave thinking only the best of my sisters and brothers-in-law, and only the worst of me.

He went to his grave having taken my sisters’ and brothers-in-law’s word for everything, and my word for nothing.

And my sisters and brothers-in-law have never told my mother just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

And she will likely go to her grave thinking only the best of my sisters and brothers-in-law, and only the worst of me.

She will likely go to her grave having taken my sisters’ and brothers-in-law’s word for everything, and my word for nothing.

Because my sisters and brothers-in-law will likely never tell my mother just what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

I cannot help but laugh softly as I realize how much this reads like a Faulknerian plot.

And William Faulkner’s novels are my favorite.

My sisters and brothers-in-law know nothing of literature, as they know nothing of the humanities—or of humanity.

Everything is going according to plan, for them—this is what they wanted.

They know what they did on April 10, 2016—and why they did it.

They are not my sisters and brothers-in-law—they have not been my sisters and brothers-in-law since April 10, 2016.

They are just the physical remains of my sisters and brothers-in-law—animated by wrath and greed.

I am a bitter, angry, old man at 52.

On June 22, 2015, Republican Nimrata Randhawa Haley perpetrated this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America—and this is ongoing.

On June 24, 2015, Republican Ashton Hayward censored the First Confederate Flag from my city’s historical flags displays, without my consent—and this is ongoing.

On June 25, 2015, Republican Doug Underhill, Republican Grover C. Robinson IV, Republican Steven Barry, Republican Wilson Robertson (whose seat is now occupied by Republican Jeff Bergosh), and Democrat Lumon May chose to keep the First Confederate Flag censored from my city’s historical flags displays, without my consent—and this is ongoing.

On June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled my vote, as a citizen of the State of Florida, null and void—and this is ongoing.

On April 10, 2016, my sisters and brothers-in-law began viciously lying to my parents, about me—and this is ongoing.

On March 11, 2017, my sisters and brothers-in-law began viciously lying to me, about my parents’ whereabouts—and this is ongoing.

I am a bitter, angry, old man at 52—primarily for the ongoing reasons listed above.

You would be too.

WE ARE PUT ON THIS EARTH TO THINK—ALL OF US

Last year, I encountered a young lady on the political left who refused to hear the truth about slavery in the United States, because she was afraid to think.

Today, I encountered an old gentleman on the political right who refused to hear the truth about the Modern State of Israel, because he was afraid to think.

This “Trump Derangement Syndrome” seems to be working both ways—those who so vehemently support President Trump are as afraid to think as those who so vehemently oppose him.

The reason ignorance is bliss is that ignorance requires no effort.

And the reason feeling is bliss is that feeling requires no effort.

Thinking requires effort—and we human beings have a natural aversion toward anything that requires effort.

But we are put on this earth to think—all of us.

REVELATIONS ABOUT THE REAL LINCOLN

Abraham Lincoln is the most mythologized of all U.S. presidents. The following editorial, by Syndicated Columnist Walter Williams, includes some surprising revelations about the real Lincoln.

Does Civil War need a new name?

“We call the war of 1861 the Civil War.  But is that right?  A civil war is a struggle between two or more entities trying to take over the central government. Confederate President Jefferson Davis no more sought to take over Washington, D.C., than George Washington sought to take over London in 1776.  Both wars, those of 1776 and 1861, were wars of independence.  Such a recognition does not require one to sanction the horrors of slavery.  We might ask: How much of the war was about slavery?

“Was President Abraham Lincoln really for outlawing slavery?  Let’s look at his words.  In an 1858 letter, Lincoln said, ‘I have declared a thousand times, and now repeat that, in my opinion neither the General Government, nor any other power outside of the slave states, can constitutionally or rightfully interfere with slaves or slavery where it already exists.’

“In a Springfield, Illinois, speech, he explained: ‘My declarations upon this subject of Negro slavery may be misrepresented but cannot be misunderstood.  I have said that I do not understand the Declaration (of Independence) to mean that all men were created equal in all respects.’

“What about Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation?  Here are his words: ‘I view the matter (of slaves’ emancipation) as a practical war measure, to be decided upon according to the advantages or disadvantages it may offer to the suppression of the rebellion.’  He also wrote: ‘I will concede that emancipation would help us in Europe, and convince them that we are incited by something more than ambition.’  When Lincoln first drafted the proclamation, war was going badly for the Union. London and Paris were considering recognizing the Confederacy and assisting it in its war against the Union.

“Lincoln did articulate a view of secession that would have been heartily endorsed by the Confederacy: ‘Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one that suits them better. … Nor is this right confined to cases in which the whole people of an existing government may choose to exercise it.  Any portion of such people can revolutionize and make their own of so much of the territory as they inhabit.’  Lincoln expressed that view in an 1848 speech in the U.S. House of Representatives, supporting the war with Mexico and the secession of Texas.

“Why didn’t Lincoln share the same feelings about Southern secession? Follow the money.  During the 1850s, tariffs amounted to 90 percent of federal revenue. Southern ports paid 75 percent of tariffs in 1859.  What ‘responsible’ politician would let that much revenue go?”

Let me add that Lincoln’s admission of the true motive behind his Emancipation Proclamation (as a “practical war measure”) was clearly demonstrated in its application. Lincoln is considered the Great Emancipator, but facts prove otherwise.  The most damning is this: Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation applied only to the Confederate States.  It did not apply to the Border States. The Border States were four slave states that had not seceded from the United States: Missouri, Kentucky, Maryland, and Delaware. Under the Emancipation Proclamation, slavery continued in the Border States.

Slavery was not abolished in the United States until the Thirteenth Amendment was ratified on December 6, 1865.

THEY ARE DESTROYING THEMSELVES WITH THEIR SMARTPHONES

There is a limit to human good, but there is no limit to human evil.

And I have never witnessed so much evil in my fellow human beings as in this Digital Age.

Most of this evil is manifested in their indifference.

Their smartphones are indifferent—and as they become more addicted to their smartphones, they become more indifferent.

I made the decision, years ago, not to get a cellphone or smartphone.

And I made the decision, years ago, not to get a Facebook or Twitter account.

I made the decision, years ago, to limit the Digital-Age technology in my life.

But my fellow human beings never made that decision—not most of them anyway.

And whenever I appeal to my fellow human beings to limit the Digital-Age technology in their lives, their indifference turns to denial, at best, and wrath, at worst.

Politicians, like Nikki Haley and Mitch Landrieu, have always been evil.

Yet politicians are running amok in this Digital-Age because my fellow human beings are indifferent to their evil—and to their evil deeds.

Only in this Digital Age do my fellow human beings allow politicians to censor their historical flags and monuments without their consent.

Because only in this Digital Age are my fellow human beings so indifferent to the evil of politicians—and to the evil deeds of politicians.

Their smartphones make them oblivious to everything and everyone around them.

And as their governments and corporations keep pushing their little, electronic drugs on them—by pushing more and more apps on them—they become more oblivious, and thereby indifferent.

As long as I can have a landline phone, I know that my fellow human beings can have landline phones too—at least in my country.

And as long as I can have a blog, I know that my fellow human beings can have blogs too.

I limit the Digital-Age technology in my life to a desktop personal computer and a blog.

And this is how I am so aware of the evil indifference in my fellow human beings who do not.

This is how I am so aware of how evil my fellow human beings are becoming, as they become more and more addicted to those smartphones.

This is how I am so aware of how evil my fellow human beings are becoming, as they become more and more addicted to Facebook and Twitter.

Their evil is manifested in their ignorance, apathy, and complacency.

Yet most of their evil is manifested in their indifference.

There is a limit to human good, but there is no limit to human evil.

And I have never witnessed so much evil in my fellow human beings as in this Digital Age.

Most of this evil is manifested in their indifference.

Their smartphones are mindless, godless, and inhuman.

And as they become more addicted to their smartphones, they become more mindless, godless, and inhuman—just like their smartphones.

I softly laugh, as I consider ending this rambling post with, “Fools! I’ll destroy them all!”

Yet I stop laughing when I realize that they are destroying themselves, by refusing to limit the Digital-Age technology in their lives.

And more than anything else, they are destroying themselves with their smartphones.

A GOOD START

“At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

“And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

“And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

“Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

“And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

“But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

“Woe unto the world because of offenses! for it must needs be that offenses  come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!”

Matthew 18 : 1-7

“Then said he unto the disciples, It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!

“It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.”

Luke 17 : 1-2

“OUR INDIVIDUAL AND NATIONAL SHADOWS”

“I believe that President Donald Trump is only the symptom of Trump Derangement Syndrome—he is not the disease.

“I admit I am increasingly deranged as I witness the escalating erosion of decency, the normalization and acceptance of deception, the brazen, unchallenged corruption and disregard for law and ethics.

“Trump’s tactics are textbook projection.  He disowns his venality and blames others for his sins.  We are his goats of Azazel, commanded to carry his sins out of sight.

“I am baffled that anyone who claims to be an Israelite (one who wrestles) can be assuaged by his antics.  He represents Amalek, the anti-Jew who mocks our commandments.  Amalek represents our dark, destructive impulses, literally our inner “dweller in the vale,” our Yetzer Hara.  Amalek has many descendants and Trump and his co-conspirators are the most recent, and in my experience, the most frightening eruptions of our individual and national shadows that I have known in my lifetime.”
