On Progressivism

I was just reading an essay by Richard Sahn: Life Lessons from Dorothy Day.

I recall reading about Dorothy Day at the University of Massachusetts and her newspaper and Catholic Worker

I like Richard’s comment on our “our acceptance of a filthy, rotten, system that enshrines greed and injustice and inequity, a system tailored for exploitative competition, brutal punishment, and forever war”

As a nation under God, I’m of the opinion that while we do need to support ourselves; we shouldn’t do that at the expense of our souls.  Lying to get ahead may seem fine but, it is a sin.  I’ve seen that and more in my local humans. I also know humans that are good, God loving people. I’ve also met good  people who are having a hard time due to ill health or other problems. Some work is being done to alleviate this suffering, but not enough.

I’ve become aware of Slavery which still exists and is both in our supply chain and in our own nation.

Many of my fellow American citizens remind me of an animal licking it’s genitals. Not good, but very human. I hope we can rise above that.

Please stop war. Use diplomacy. Stop jailing people for honest mistakes. We are all human beings. Please remember the Golden Rule – treat other people the way you would like to be treated.

God does love us all.

God Bless America,

Cocooning ourselves

As an American Dad, I can feel the  social cocoon around me. TV, people, the  home, the auto.

It’s somewhat pleasant, but I do fear for those of us on the outskirts.

I’ve written about Our American Body which is becoming more flabby.  I enjoy walking and enjoying nature and also

(by Petula Clark)

I wish Americans  would open their eyes and educate themselves and be more vigilant. Our politicians are in bed with major corporations which are working hard to enslave you with debt. We are wasting resources on War when it would be much more efficient to put resources on diplomacy and education.

People get raped and murdered and disappeared daily due to ‘public servants’ not doing their jobs but instead being predators on we the people.  People are turned into slaves by an industry called Human Trafficking.

I hope we can fix this quickly.

They work for us, don’t they ?

American Culture of Death

I found the video homily by Fr. William Nicholas to be excellent. Very erudite and enlightening.  We should thank G-d for giving him to us.

I find the American culture of death to be tied into the easy entertainment we have about crime and violence and the lowbrow entertainment such as “Spongebob Squarepants” and First Person Shooter games.

Love G-d and love your neighbor. Those are foundational to Western Civilization.

G-d Bless America, please.

Justice for my fellow Americans

I am of the opinion that our nation, the United States of America, is somewhat broken. I would like it fixed.

1) We are all people

2) We don’t have kings anymore

3) Locking people up for mistakes is a bad idea. It presently makes them almost unemployable which is a waste of their human potential. It would be much better to give them supervised community service for their errors. Perhaps teach them a trade if they don’t have one. Young people with good backgrounds or not do make errors. We should help them rather then imprison them. The male human brain doesn’t fully develop till almost age 30. It’s evil to lie including dropping a bag of drug residue into a person you don’t like automobile or similar things to implicate people who may or may not have done something bad.

4) People may have forgotten some things which I’m trying to pass on.

a) The Golden Rule – as people we should try to treat others as we would like to be treated. For people of other cultures,we should try to treat them as they would like to be treated, e.g. As-salamu alaykum

b) The 2A protects our human right Self Defense. God does love us. He gave us selves. It’s a uniquely American right that allows us to defend our selves from rape and murders. As Americans, we should take pride in our nation and it’s people and the Nations history. Please share. Don’t you want your daughter or granddaughter to be able to fend off a rapist or other violent person ?

5) It would be good for our nation to have goals. The Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs where major achievements of our nation and the human race. We should continue. Let us not stop after the Skylab, the ISS, Pathfinder, the Mars Rovers Spirit and Opportunity and the Mars Exploration Rovers. Let’s move on. It’s our manifest destiny.

6) Healthcare is important as it relieves suffering. However, I don’t really care to live past 75. I’ve accomplished most of what I want to accomplish already. If you haven’t already, I’m sorry. I can say however, that life is good. I enjoy life. I hope you do too.

7) Mothers are Saints. They went through a lot to bring you into the world. You have no idea what they went through. Please venerate and respect them no matter what. Life for them may have been difficult at times. Please try to understand without digging to deeply. It’s the right thing to do. As people in God’s image it would be a good thing if we respected each other no matter what their proclivities are even if you don’t understand.

8) People tend to have vices. Smoking, alcohol, illicit drugs. While not good, I know that prohibition doesn’t work. It would be better to tax it and put the money to education.

9) Kids need freedom to develop properly. They do need to gradually get more freedom to develop into proper adults. We don’t need a nanny state. Sure, kids may make a mistake and bad things do happen on very rare occasion but thankfully they are rare but tragic. The media makes a spectacles of the bad things that do happen and rarely document the good things that happen.

10) Education is good. Not everyone wants or has the ability to become President but, all things are possible. It would be good if people valued education and trades equally as they are important. When you need a plumber or electrician or mechanic you really need a good one. It would be good to try your best to fulfill your potential as a person. As Americans, that’s more possible then in some other nations.

May God Bless America, please.

American Apathy

It seems most American’s are apathetic. Just thinking of wanking their own wanker and enjoying the Boob tube. Television, the drug of the nation, breeding ignorance and feeding radiation.

The urge to go to war on an attacker is natural, but if we use our heads, it might be better to outlive the attacker on our nation by educating and changing them. That’s diplomacy.

I’m reminded of a story I read once where there was an additive in the food that made everyone a passive recipient of the information being fed to them in the television. The protagonist took himself off the additive and then was able to see what was really going and how people were being directed using subliminal messaging.

I am horrified by the apathy and ignorance of most American People toward evil and about the other people’s suffering. I hope and pray that the American people will amend their ways.

I hope to make it to Food Not Bombs, who distributes food at Pershing Square Los Angeles CA at 6:30p and 6th and San Julian behind the Union Rescue Mission at 7p every Sunday, rain or shine.
