YOU NEED THE STICK MORE THAN THE CARROT

Saturday, a bunch of you privileged little smartphone-addicted  girls marched on Pensacola, protesting Trump—must have been some kind of anniversary thing.

Not a single one of you Generation-Y snowflakes voted against Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries in 2016—as I would have done, had independent voters been allowed to vote in the Democratic or Republican primaries.

Not a single one of you has contacted your senator or representative to request that he impeach Trump, and remove him from office—as I did, immediately after he was elected President.

You love the Black Lives Matter “movement”—though most of you are spoiled, White college students who have no understanding of what you’re protesting.

You especially love this Me Too “movement”—though most of you are spoiled, “sexually-liberated” girls who have no understanding of what you’re protesting.

And you have no idea what mindless, little hypocrites you are—shaming us men into begging you for consent, before we can touch you—yet demanding that politicians censor their constituents’ historical flags and monuments without their constituents’ consent.

You have no idea what mindless, little hypocrites you are—demanding that politicians censor the flags and monuments that you don’t like, without a clue that these same politicians will eventually censor the flags and monuments that you do like.

You protest nothing that really matters—like our federal government’s ongoing support of the Israeli government at the expense of the American people, our federal government’s green light to American corporations to outsource American manufacturing and service jobs to foreign countries, and our state and local governments’ censorship of their constituents’ historical flags and monuments without their constituents’ consent, which of course you mindlessly support and encourage.

I don’t call you “millenials”—why should you get a special name when we of Generation X do not?

It’s ironic that most of you support abortion-on-demand and same-sex marriage, when, if your mothers would have aborted you, or if your mothers and mothers or fathers and fathers—you wouldn’t even be here to be so self-absorbed.

Generation Y the hell were you bastards even born?

We realize you’re so self-absorbed, mindless, and clueless because your Generation-X and Baby-Boomer parents were so negligent.

We realize you’re so mindlessly, godlessly, and inhumanly addicted to your mindless, godless, and inhuman smartphones because your Generation-X and Baby-Boomer parents were so mindlessly, godlessly, and inhumanly addicted to their mindless, godless, and inhuman smartphones.

But we still hate you, beyond words, because you’re running our country into the ground—and destroying our world.

I admit this post is not the carrot—this post is the stick.

But you need the stick more than the carrot.

And you’ll continue to need the stick more than the carrot until you get rid of your cellphones and smartphones, close your Facebook and Twitter accounts, and get human—for the first time in your lives.

For God’s sake, stop thinking for the Digital-Age establishment, and start thinking for yourselves.

And stand up for humanity—be human. 

A DIFFERENT APPROACH

Subject: FROM SCOTT MAYO, RE TWO ONLINE PETITIONS I HAVE STARTED

I appreciate your time and consideration, in reading this email.

For a long time now, I’ve been very concerned about the direction our country, the United States, is taking.

Since 2012, I’ve been especially concerned about the destructive impact that unrestrained Digital-Age technology—particularly cellular technology (cellphones and smartphones) and social media (Facebook, Twitter, et al)—is having on our country.

And since June 22, 2015, I’ve been especially concerned about an ongoing trend of state and local politicians censoring their constituents’ historical flags, and destroying their constituents’ historical monuments—without their constituents’ consent.  This posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America is destructive to the United States of America—and I have been doing all I can to bring awareness to it, and to elicit the help of my fellow Southern Americans, my fellow Americans, and my fellow human beings worldwide, in stopping this destructive trend.

I have started two petitions on the website, Change.org, on which I would appreciate your adding your signature to mine.

The first is to President Trump, requesting that he remove Nikki Haley from his presidential cabinet—because Nikki Haley is the initial perpetrator of this posthumous extermination of the Confederate States of America, and because Nikki Haley is being rewarded for her exploitation of a mass murder.

The second is to Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward and the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners to return the First Confederate Flag to its rightful place in Pensacola’s Five-Flags Displays—the historical flags displays of the five nations under which Pensacola, Florida, has lived and thrived.  These local politicians have censored the First Confederate Flag from our historical flags displays since June 24, 2015—without our consent.  They have not even let us vote on this.

Our country, the United States of America, is in serious danger of self-destruction.  The sociopolitical chaos our country is experiencing in this Digital Age is unprecedented in its history.  And this sociopolitical chaos—driven by unrestrained Digital-Age technology—is spreading all over our world.

Most of us seem to be pretending that everything is fine—as if our country’s problems will simply go away if we ignore them.  But this is never the case—no country’s problems simply go away, as if by magic.

Many of us are quite aware of the danger posed to our country, but feel so powerless to do anything about it that we just give up—we just do nothing, and look forward to our deaths, or to a Biblical event that will require no action on our part.

Of course, neither of these approaches is ever effective.

We can turn our country—and our world—around.  But we can only do this together—and with small, incremental actions.

And signing online petitions is a way of taking small, incremental actions together.

Please click on the links below, and—unless either of these petitions is against everything you believe in—add your signature to these online petitions.  Your signature will be greatly appreciated—perhaps more than you know.

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PART 1

HISTORY, CIVICS, AND PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY PENSACOLA’S FIVE-FLAGS DISPLAYS

BEWARE THE FEAST WE ARE PROMISED

“The mass media’s influence on the ethics of public life, as characterized by the press’s watchdog role in monitoring the conduct of government officials, is assumed to be vital to democracy.  The effectiveness of this watchdog role is less clearly understood.  Partial answers are found in the evolving institutional history of the press, including its control, ethics, laws, technology, organization, and the content of news stories.  Just as reporters rarely discuss their ethics in terms of teleology and deontology, the press does not conceptualize in sophisticated terms its impact on the ethics of public employees.  It traditionally finds motivation from the popular belief in watchdog success models from muckraking to Watergate.  As partisanship, news values, and reporting techniques evolve, effectiveness varies.  Research sheds light on media trends but focuses more on presidents than county clerks, more on political campaigns than government process.  Optimism, as new doors and new technology open to reporters, is tempered by competition from the marketplace and the new digital feast promised consumers.”

AGGRESSIVELY CENSORED AND SUPPRESSED

No weather forecast in the world has that hurricane landing anywhere near Escambia County, Florida.

But countless Escambia County, Florida residents don’t know this—because they never watch the local television news.

They rely on Facebook and Twitter for all of their (mis)information.

And they are mindlessly panicking because they do.

And because of their mindlessness, those of us who drink bottled water on a daily basis cannot acquire any, here in Escambia County, Florida.

The mindless cellphone and smartphone addicts are buying up all our water.

The mindless Facebook and Twitter addicts are buying up all our water.

Before this mindless Digital Age, we only had to prepare for hurricanes.

Now we have to prepare, not for hurricanes, but mindless panic over hurricanes.

Mindless panic caused by unrestrained Digital-Age technology.

Mindless panic caused by people who are too stupid to get rid of their mindless cellphones and smartphones—and get landline phones again.

Mindless panic caused by people who are too stupid to close their Facebook and Twitter accounts—and use blogs to get their messages across.

The day is coming when people will be killed, not by natural disasters, but by mindless panic over natural disasters—perpetuated by mindless addiction to cellphones and smartphones, and mindless reliance on Facebook and Twitter.

People will be killed simply because other people are too stupid to get rid of their cellphones and smartphones, and too stupid to close their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Yet all honest reflection on dealing with the Goddamned Digital Age is aggressively censored and suppressed.
