Sunday Morning Coming Down

Sunday morning coming down and Lord I'm wishing I was stoned. I might as well be with all the nonsense I hear from people these days. Apparently, all my degrees and experience mean nothing because the media tells me I'm a bigot suffering from privileged conditioning by a society that favors my race, sex, and religion. I don't believe it, but that's what they say.

A word of advice: stay away from car dealers and dealerships in Weatherford, Texas. Remember, when you buy a new vehicle, you're buying into a service as well and that service is only as good as those who provide it. Would you buy a car from an organization whose managers hire illegals, demean their employees, and sexually harass the young women in their employ? Well, maybe you would if that manager was related to you. Texas car dealerships are notorious for taking your money. Don't be a victim of those guys in Weatherford.

• Sorry to disappoint, but the reason no one is visiting from the future is that it can't be done. Same thing for traveling to the past. The only location in time that actually exists is the here and now. It's the only place you can be. The implications of this are that time travel will *never* be possible for the simple reason there isn't anywhere to travel to.

If time travel were possible, why aren't there tourists from the future?

• The media, the neocons, and the communists continue to dump on Trump. The intelligence agencies are waging a war against him and the Democrats started planning impeachment proceedings before he gained office! Apparently, the deep state is populated by globalists. We know who these reptiles really are -- they're professional bureaucrats, elitists all.

These globalist bastards think they know better. They think you should stop believing in God, join a local conservation group, and take anger management classes. They believe you are not smart enough to raise your own children. Additionally, you need to be lectured on white privilege. An elitist always knows better. Elitists are not always Democrats, but Democrats are always elitist.

Progressivism is driving the US to civil war and that is exactly what they want. Pelosi, Obama, Clinton? They all want to see the US collapse and a new socialist state with a new socialist constitution. Think I'm kidding?

• It appears more and more likely that Obama ordered surveillance on Donald Trump during the election process. Trump said so last week and has been ridiculed for it. It has been revealed that federal agencies sought permission to conduct surveillance of Trump Tower in 2016. Today, the Department of Justice provided information to the House Intelligence Committee Friday regarding the" wiretap" at Trump Tower.

Nobody uses the word "wiretap" anymore so there may be some pretty contorted definitions coming out in the media (or not) as the media scrambles to cover Obama's flank.

• Lawmakers” give the commands, but it is their faithful enforcers who carry them out. Millions upon millions of otherwise decent, civilized people spend day after day harassing, threatening, extorting, controlling, bullying and otherwise oppressing others who have not harmed or threatened anyone. But because the actions of such “law enforcers” are deemed “legal,” and because they believe they are acting on behalf of “authority,” they imagine themselves to bear no responsibility for their actions. Worse yet, they do not even view their own actions as being their own actions. They speak and act as if their minds and bodies have somehow been taken over by some invisible entity called “the law” or “government.” They say things like “Hey, I don’t make the laws, I just enforce them; it’s not up to me.” They speak and act as if it is impossible for them to do anything other than helplessly carry out the will of a power called “authority,” and that they are therefore no more personally responsible for their actions than a puppet is responsible for what the puppeteer makes it do.

When acting in their “official” capacity, while seemingly helplessly possessed by the spirit of “authority,” “law enforcers” behave in ways which they never otherwise would, and do things that they themselves would recognize as uncivilized, violent and evil if they did such things of their own volition, without an “authority” telling them to. Examples of this occur all over the world, every hour of every day, in a wide variety of ways.

A soldier might shoot a complete stranger, whose only sin was to be out walking in a militarily occupied zone after a declared curfew. A group of heavily armed men might kick down someone’s door and drag him away, or shoot a man in front of his wife and children, because the man grew a plant which politicians proclaimed to be forbidden (”illegal”). A bureaucrat might file paperwork instructing a financial institution to take thousands of dollars out of someone’s bank account in the name of “tax collection.” Another bureaucrat may send in armed thugs upon finding out that someone had the gall to build a deck on his own property, with the approval of his neighbors but without “government” approval (in the form of a “building permit”). A traffic cop may stop and extort someone (via a “ticket”) for not wearing a seatbelt. A TSA agent may rummage through someone’s personal belongings, without the slightest reason to suspect that the person has done, or is going to do, anything wrong. A “judge” may direct armed thugs to put someone in a cage, for weeks, months, or years, for anything from showing contempt for the judge to driving without the written permission of politicians (in the form of a driver’s “license”) to having engaged in any type of mutually voluntary but nonpolitician-sanctioned (”illegal”) commerce.

These examples, and literally millions of others which could be given, are acts of aggression committed by perpetrators who would not have committed them if they had not been directed to do so by a perceived “authority.” In short, most instances of theft, assault, and murder happen only because “authority” told someone to steal, attack, or kill. Most of the time, the people who carry out such orders would not have committed such crimes on their own. Of the 100,000 people who work for the Internal Revenue Service, how many engaged in harassment, extortion, and theft before becoming IRS agents? Few, if any. How many soldiers went around harassing, threatening, or killing people they did not know before joining the military? Few, if any. How many police officers regularly went around stopping, interrogating, and kidnapping non-violent people before becoming “law enforcers”? Very few. How many “judges” had people thrown into cages for nonviolent behavior before being appointed to a “court”? Probably none.

When such acts of aggression become “legal,” and are done in the name of “law enforcement,” those who commit them imagine such acts to be inherently legitimate and valid, even though they recognize that, had they committed the very same acts on their own, instead of on behalf of an imagined “authority,” the acts would have constituted crimes, and would have been immoral. While there are obviously more significant and less significant cogs in the wheels of the “government” machine, from low-level paper-pushers to armed mercenaries, they all have two things in common:

1) They inflict unpleasantness on others in a way they would not have done on their own, and
2) They accept no personal responsibility for their actions while in “law enforcer” mode. Nothing makes this more obvious than the fact that, when the properness or morality of their actions is called into question, their response is almost always some variation of “I’m just doing my job.” The obvious implication in all such statements is this: “I am not responsible for my actions, because ‘authority’ told me to do this.” The only way that makes a shred of sense is if the person is literally incapable of refusing to do something a perceived “authority” tells him to do. Unfortunately, the horrific truth is that most people, as a result of their authoritarian indoctrination, do seem to be psychologically incapable of disobeying the commands of an imagined “authority.” Most people, given the choice between doing what they know is right and doing what they know is wrong when ordered to do so by a perceived “authority,” will do the latter.

• A dragonfly has a life span of 24 hours.

• Everything's going to be all right! Within a quarter century, nonbiological intelligence will match the range and subtlety of human intelligence. It will then soar past it because of the continuing acceleration of information-based technologies, as well as the ability of machines to instantly share their knowledge. Intelligent nanorobots will be deeply integrated in our bodies, our brains, and our environment, overcoming pollution and poverty, providing vastly extended longevity, full-immersion virtual reality incorporating all of the senses (like “The Matrix”), “experience beaming” (like “Being John Malkovich”), and vastly enhanced human intelligence. The result will be an intimate merger between the technology-creating species and the technological evolutionary process it spawned.

• Former DNC chairwoman and disgraced CNN commentator Donna Brazile has admitted she relayed confidential questions to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in advance of last year’s primary debate and is now blaming Russian hackers! This song and dance has gotten old. Somebody needs to tell the Democrats that the Russian Hacker excuse failed. It did not work. The American people don't buy it. What we do buy is that our institutions have become corrupt to the core with Democratic party hacks and philosophical assertions on the proper way to live a life (One musn't do this... One must do that...).
