LET US BE CONSERVATIONISTS, RATHER THAN ENVIRONMENTALISTS

Earth Day is tomorrow.

Earth Day is a nice sentiment, but it is just as ineffective at bringing about real, positive change as Martin Luther King Jr. Day is.

Environmentalism is like communism—it always works in theory, but never works in practice.

Because environmentalism, just like communism, works against human nature.

Conservationism is like capitalism—it always works in theory, and always works in practice (if it is applied with knowledge, wisdom, discipline, and restraint).

Because conservationism, just like capitalism, works with human nature.

Environmentalism says, “Nature first—to hell with humanity.”

Conservationism says, “Humanity first—it is in the interest of humanity to conserve the earth’s natural resources for the benefit of humanity.”

On every day—not just Earth Day—let us be conservationists, rather than environmentalists.

TO LIMIT THE DIGITAL-AGE TECHNOLOGY IN OUR LIVES

The abolitionist movement

The women’s suffrage movement

The labor union movement

The conservation movement

The temperance movement

The civil rights movement

The American Indian movement

The feminist movement

The anti-nuclear movement

The environmental movement

Notice a difference?

The sociopolitical movements before this mindless Digital Age were truly movements.  Everyone had an opinion on them—and the opinions were as diverse as the individuals in the general population.

These social-media outbursts are not movements at all.

They are trendy slogans that are as mindless and meaningless as “Jesus Saves,” and “God Bless America.”

But because they are sold as meaningful movements to largely Generation-Y and Generation-Z smartphone addicts with no understanding of history, civics, or personal responsibility, they are especially subversive and dangerous outbursts—and therefore destructive.

And the only way we can prevent the destruction of our world is to rid ourselves of our cellphones and smartphones, and close our Facebook and Twitter accounts.

The only way we can prevent the destruction of our world is to limit the Digital-Age technology in our lives.

RESPECT AND APPRECIATE, GENERATION Y

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

During the Great Depression, Marian Anderson was prohibited from singing at Constitution Hall, in Washington, D.C., by the Daughters of the American Revolution—because she was colored.  First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt resigned from the DAR—then arranged for Marian Anderson to sing in front of the Lincoln Memorial, instead.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

In 1940, Hattie McDaniel was a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee for her role as “Mammy” in the 1939 production of “Gone with the Wind”.

Colored people were prohibited from entering the Los Angeles hotel where the awards ceremony was held, but the hotel made an exception for Hattie McDaniel.  It allowed her to attend the ceremony—though she had to sit at a table across the room from the tables where the whites sat.  Hattie McDaniel graciously accepted the Best Supporting Actress Academy Award however, stating that she hoped to be a credit to her race.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

The majority of abolitionists in the 19th century were whites who simply didn’t want blacks around—enslaved or free.

In all Northern states, blacks were segregated from whites—and some, like Indiana, kept blacks out entirely.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo, who was raised in Ohio, encountered some uppity Southern women once—the kind of Southern women who gave all Southern women a bad name.  

They asked her a question about a train’s schedule, and she replied, “That colored lady said…”

“We don’t call a colored woman a ‘lady,'” they interrupted.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo also told me of a restaurant in New York that didn’t take kindly to recent desegregation laws.

The waitress served the black man and his wife—but in the rudest, noisiest manner.

She slammed their plates onto the table, and abruptly walked away.

 

BLACK LIVES MATTER, Generation Y?

My German friend, Mr. Vogel, wanted to register to vote in Alabama, after moving there from Wisconsin.

He was told he’d have to pay a poll tax to register to vote.

“Why?” he asked.

“To keep the niggers down,” was the reply.

Mr. Vogel refused to pay a poll tax for a reason like that—he waited until poll taxes were prohibited, before he registered to vote in Alabama.

 

You can put those BLACK LIVES MATTER signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo’s Aunt Pearl told of her mother—an orphan in Ohio.

At one point, Aunt Pearl’s mother, Lizzie, was staying with a woman who had three sons.  This woman’s three sons bullied Lizzie, a great deal—verbally and emotionally.

But whenever Lizzie reported this abuse to their mother, their mother accused Lizzie of lying—and sided with her sons, without ever even questioning them.

Eventually, Lizzie was adopted by a more understanding and loving foster mother.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was actually born in Nashville.

But her father died, not long after she was born.  

Her sixteen-year-old mother, Nonnie, had to take her newborn daughter all the way back home to Akron, Ohio—because she didn’t have the means to raise her by herself.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

Nonnie and Pearl had a sister named Polly.

I have a photograph of my Great-Great Aunt Polly that was taken shortly before she died—she was a beautiful young woman.

Polly died in childbirth—at age eighteen.

Needless to say, her husband was heartbroken.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

My Grandma Mayo was “pro-choice”, and I didn’t agree with her on that point.

But her opinion was completely understandable.

Louise—a beautiful cousin of her husband’s—got pregnant, out of wedlock.

In those days, an unwed woman who got pregnant was often treated like trash—while the man who impregnated her was often treated with impunity.

As was so often the case, in those days, the father of Louise’s unborn child disappeared—and Louise was faced with the stigma every abandoned, unwed mother faced.

Louise panicked, and attempted to abort the child.

She and her unborn child died in the attempt.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

During the War between the Confederate States and the United States—and especially during the “Reconstruction”, a brutal occupation in which the people of the vanquished Confederate States were denied their constitutional rights for twelve years—Southern women, black and white, were brutally raped by Union troops and Union League terrorists, on a constant basis.

 

ME TOO, Generation Y?

On March 25, 1911, 145 young women—mostly teenaged immigrants who didn’t speak English—burned to death at the Triangle Shirtwaist Company factory in New York City.

Women died in Northern factories often—this was just one of the worst of such tragedies.

In fact, the majority of factory workers in Northern U.S. cities were orphans and unwed women, in those days.

And the factory owners and managers—most of them Jewish men—couldn’t care less.

 

You can put those ME TOO signs down, Generation Y.  And you can show some appreciation for the fact that you’ve never truly suffered a day in your privileged lives.  And you can show some respect for your ancestors—and your elders—who have.

CEO AND EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT OF THE NRA

Mr. LaPierre,

I have just listened to most of your speech from this year’s CPAC convention, and I agree with most of what you say.

Our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms is as important as every other one of our constitutional rights.

Yet it is our First Amendment right to freedom of speech that is in the greatest jeopardy today—because of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

Politicians censoring our historical flags and monuments, without our consent, is a violation of our First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Nimrata Randhawa Haley perpetrated this destruction on June 22, 2015, yet it is ongoing, with no end in sight, unless we all take a stand against it—now.

I am convinced that you care about our Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

Yet I would appreciate it if you would show me how much you care about our First Amendment right to freedom of speech—by taking a stand against this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America.

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

HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY: ITS TRUE PURPOSE

Palestinian laborers wait to cross an Israeli checkpoint as they return to their homes after a day’s work in the Jewish state in 2010 near the village of Ni’ilin in the West Bank

Israeli forces, including soldiers disguised as Palestinians, violently arrest a Palestinian child in occupied Jerusalem on October 24, 2014.

SHE HAS NO RIGHT TO TWEET ABOUT RIGHTS, FREEDOMS, OR CHRISTIANITY

“Religious freedom is one of our most precious rights, one that should be enjoyed by all no matter where they are born.  The Government of China banning online sales of the Bible is an assault on their citizens’ freedoms & on Christianity…”

“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…”

IF YOU “STAND WITH ISRAEL,” YOU STAND FOR EVIL

BRITAIN’S ZIONISM AND ITS CONSEQUENCES

ANYONE CAN CLAIM TO BE A CHRISTIAN—AND ANYONE CAN CLAIM TO BE AN AMERICAN

NEOCONSERVATISM AND LIBERALISM BEST BE AVOIDED—BY ALL OF US

“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…”

Liberals are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

Neocons are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

All Republican public officials today, elected and appointed, are politicians.

And all Republican politicians today, elected and appointed, are neocon politicians.

All Democratic public officials today, elected and appointed, are politicians.

And all Democratic politicians today, elected and appointed, are liberal politicians.

The Republican Party has been completely overtaken by neocons since June 22, 2015.

The Democratic Party has been completely overtaken by liberals since November 22, 1963.

Neocon politicians misrepresent themselves as conservatives.

Liberal politicians misrepresent themselves as progressives.

Though there is a difference between conservatives and progressives—so that a person can be a conservative progressive, or a progressive conservative—there is no difference between neocons and liberals.

A person cannot be a neocon liberal or a liberal neocon—because neocons and liberals are the same.

Neocons are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of neocons.

Liberals are ignorant.

Yet neocon politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

And liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of liberals—thereby perpetuating the ignorance of liberals.

The Democratic Party has been completely overtaken by liberals since November 22, 1963—and there is not likely any hope that the Democratic Party can be reformed.

Therefore, all Democratic voters best abandon the Democratic Party.

The Republican Party has been completely overtaken by neocons since June 22, 2015—and there is not likely any hope that the Republican Party can be reformed.

Therefore, all Republican voters best abandon the Republican Party.

This post goes all over the place because my mind does, at this moment.

But if there is a point I would like to be taken from this post, it is this:

Neoconservatism and liberalism are the same.  Neocon politicians and liberal politicians are the same.  Neocons and liberals are ignorant—and neocon and liberal politicians exploit the ignorance of neocons and liberals. Thus neoconservatism and liberalism best be avoided—by all of us.
