The little things count in life. We have the right wing which has an ugly history of fascism and the left wing with an equally ugly history of mass murder and theft, too. Both extremes are evil, both are set up as solutions to economic crisis situations and we are in that today. The destruction of America races onwards, more companies are firing Americans and hiring either illegal aliens or shipping jobs overseas as the rich get richer this way, the underclass grows bigger and bigger and here is a debate about saying ‘Make America Great AGAIN’ irritating the left which has been tricked into supporting the destruction of US manufacturing jobs in the name of ‘globalism’.
I am not a right wing person, I am a PATRIOT which is different and which is why I have been yelling about ‘free trade’ for many years. Yes, I am directly responsible for teaching the very first Chinese officials who came to America after they got rid of Madame Mao, all about capitalism and trade when they lived with me in the 1980s. But I also warned our own State Department that once the Chinese figure out ‘capitalism’ they would race ahead of us here in the US.
So, today this week, this 4th of July celebration, we have howling rage from the left about ‘Make America Great AGAIN.’ Here is a story about it from my local newspaper, the Times Union: Churchill: Trump slogan raises questions at Skidmore College – Times Union
Make America great again.
It’s a provocative campaign slogan, for sure. It may even be unpatriotic. But is it hateful?
That question was asked recently at Skidmore College, where the slogan was found written on the door white boards of several faculty members, triggering investigations by the school’s Bias Response Group.
In each case, the anti-bias group determined that “Make America Great Again” had been used as a “racialized, targeted attack intended to intimidate.”
Wow. I am flabbergasted. Um, is having a gigantic budget deficit, gigantic student debt for often useless ‘education’, or an enormous trade deficit plus at war across the planet with half a billion Muslims is just fine and dandy? So, we have no problems? The previous rulers of the US have exported most of our manufacturing jobs and this is good???
Why bother having elections if everything is just fine? Oh, Hillary is running on the platform, ‘Everything is fine, ship out the last remaining US manufacturing jobs and get it over with’???
Given that it’s Fourth of July weekend, I feel compelled to take a moment to consider how astonishing that slogan really is, with its implication that America is not currently great. I spent some time on Friday looking at prior presidential campaign slogans, and although Ronald Reagan sometimes used “Let’s Make America Great Again,” rare was the slogan that challenged American wonderfulness.
Yes, we are wonderful at…what? Invading Muslim countries and then importing angry Muslims here so we can fight them at home as well? Or perhaps we are proud of moving all our manufacturing to China and now our rulers want us to go to war with China and bomb these same factories while we do what, here at home?
As I recall, during WWI and WWII, we made stuff here and shipped it to the war front. Now, not so much. No, we still make bombs and such but that is pretty much it. You can’t run a war economy if you can’t make stuff we need to run things like cars or electronics (!!!!) or whatever we need, even our military gear needs lots of stuff first made outside the US. Or perhaps we will first attack Mexico and take back the factories there when we launch WWIII.
Seriously, I have spoken loudly about the stupidity of moving manufacturing to Asia and elsewhere long ago, this is utterly irresponsible for any nation to do since it means you have to surrender after one day of fighting in a war! It is dumb. History laughs at anyone imaging that a great empire can exist with zero ability to make stuff…ARGH…and this is what happened to the Roman Empire as it collapsed internally.
Was America greater in the 1950s, when many black Americans still lived under a form of apartheid? Or the 1920s, when the Ku Klux Klan was at its peak and targeting blacks and Catholics?
Or during slavery? Or when my Steele ancestors came up the Hudson River with the Van Rensselaers several hundred years ago? And if America is eternally ‘great’ then why did the Democrats howl that it was going downhill under the Bush regime? Or is it OK to say things are not great when a Republican is President but is evil if anyone is running against a Democrat? Wow.
In fact, when it comes to the treatment of minorities, America has clearly never been better than it is now, which explains why so many blacks and Hispanics are suspicious of a campaign slogan that implies a return to more bigoted eras.
And everything is coming up roses except the black inner cities are burning up, riddled with crime, most of the people there are at the very bottom of the education barrel and are now nearly totally unemployable except for crime schemes like drug dealing? And the murder rate of blacks is ten times higher than whites?
Charming, isn’t it? 8 years of Obama and this is the result: NO JOBS FOR BLACKS! That is, jobs that don’t need an extra 6 to 8 years of schooling after high school: these are the jobs being exported at a mad rate. We already know that Asian children in the US are intellectually superior, overall, than all other races and that black children are much lower on the intelligence scales and yet, we move all our jobs that don’t require geniuses to do the work, over to China!
But then, we are also not allowed to discuss why Asian children outscore white European children, Hispanic children and really outscore black children in all intellectual tests set up to check out ‘who is learning in school’ which turns out to be Asian children, above all and way above all.
In the fall, for example, it received a report of a student dressed as a Hasidic Jew for Halloween.
Also last fall, the field hockey team apparently posted a flier advertising an upcoming game that depicted an athlete wearing a sombrero and wearing a “Maggie’s Landscaping Crew” T-shirt. The Bias Response Group recommended a sensitivity workshop for the team.
We should banish Halloween for being nasty to everyone. I greatly resent making fun of us witches, for example.
Back to the core issue of the above story about racism: USAMO_Winners_2016_shows clearly that race issues are very much alive and well and facing reality is hard for US anti-racists who want to deny the reality that race DOES matter when it comes to being competent in various intellectual fields such as say, math.
Antisemitic lunatics always hate Jews for being good at say, math, and in previous generations, most of the math winners in the US were Jewish or German but today they are nearly all from Asia. This irritates racists who believe European ‘whites’ are greatest people on earth.
White racists of the GOP do not want this information anymore than black racists who run the DNC. I am the grandmother of a Chinese/European child who is extremely bright and loves…math! He eats it up voraciously like his dad did when young, too. Look at the list above of math competition winners! Many winners went to private schools but one, a kid from out of India, goes to Troy High School which is near where I live and I know that school well. Congratulations!
What amuses me most is, Phillips Exeter Academy winners who outnumber all the other winners: way back when I was winning intellectual competitions, that school invited me to come over and be the first girl to go there but I won a scholarship to go to Germany instead. Then I came home, was deported, actually, and tried to overthrow Nixon here and that was my darling school career.
Anyways, look at the names: from India or China except for one kid, Brian Reinhart who is keeping up the ‘European ethnic’ flag. I saw another possible name, Jacob Klegar who is one of the top ten and wondered what ethnic background he is and found this: TEAM Westport Announces Teen Diversity Essay Winners – WestportNow.com – Westport, Connecticut
TEAM Westport, which stands for “Together Effectively Achieving Multiculturalism,” tonight awarded first prize in its second annual Teen Diversity Essay contest to Jacob Klegar of Westport. It was presented in a ceremony at the Westport Library, which co-sponsored the competition. Klegar, a junior at Choate Rosemary Hall School, won a $1,000 first prize for his essay “Friendship Through a Shared Love of Tennis.” It was based on a relationship in his sophomore year when a Chinese national and a black student from Nigeria decided to room together as best friends through a shared love of tennis.
I like how the two mythical characters in his winning essay were being great buds due to sports! Certainly, not math.
He is from Asia like 90% of the other winners. And the solution to all this we are being presented is…WWIII against Russia and China! Yes, we will win this epic war via bombing all the factories sent to Asia and…oopsie. We have nearly nothing here now! Bad idea. This is a trap and a trap set by our own rulers who then promise everyone, the way out of this trap is to launch nuclear war.
Trump talks trade at shuttered NH factory as ‘Already Great America’ led by our present rulers continue to destroy jobs here and move them overseas and then import the goods back here again, pocketing the profits for themselves. Will Hillary visit factories closed because of Obama and her policies? SHE CANNOT. Thus, she avoids this topic entirely focusing only on attacking Trump about hats he wears or selling stuff on ebay.
US ambassador Matthew Barzun says Britain is at the back of the queue for a trade deal because Obama and his gang and the GOP gang who hates Trump want to keep up the moving of US jobs overseas and our rulers are pissed as hell that the Brits voted to protect their own borders again. ‘How dare they escape our clutches!’ scream our rulers in a hissy fit from hell.
In an interview recorded after the referendum, Mr Barzun says it is naive to think that the UK could now somehow ‘jump further ahead’ of its trade rivals.
He adds: ‘The tone in which it was said, there was nothing punitive about it.
‘The point was, you are at the front of the queue right now – he was saying back in April – because we are doing this big trade deal with the European Union, of which you are a member.
‘But if you step out of the front of the queue, by definition you are no longer at the front and some notion that you can jump further ahead; you just want to say that is not the trend for the types of big deals we are doing these days.’
The above sentence is like a snake eating its tail. Infinite stupidity indeed. As for these ‘big deals’—good lord, every one of these blasted deals steals US jobs! It wrecks homes, breaks up families, decimates cities like Detroit, Chicago, Pittsburgh, etc. etc. etc. to infinity.
Mr Barzun, 45, says President Obama felt the need to offer up the warning precisely because of the close relationship between Britain and the US.
And the voters of Britain were so impressed by his warnings and snarlings they voted to do the opposite of what he ordered.
He adds: ‘I think we did what best friends do. So before the referendum when we were asked – and President Obama said it probably most forcibly – of course, its up to you but if you ask us, we will tell you what we think which was we value a strong UK in a strong EU.’
Mr Barzun insists, however, that the UK’s Special Relationship with the US will not be affected by Brexit.
HAHAHA. No, ordering the Brits to surrender didn’t work for Hitler, either. And who is this clown?
Mr Barzun, whose wife Brooke is heiress to the Brown-Forman Corporation distilling empire, says people and countries should be honest and open with each other.
‘What friends should do to each other is to be honest,’ he says. ‘My wife and I are in couples therapy and she is a therapist herself and I am a son of a therapist and it is really important to think about what you said and to be honest.’
How did he land this juicy job in London??? BRIBES. He and his rich wife gave Obama lots and lots of loot and are giving Hillary lots and lots of loot, too. The super rich have money to burn and Hillary crows every day that she is collecting billions from these super rich so they can rule us. Isn’t that going to make America Great Again!
