I remember grade school where we were taught the melting pot – people from other cultures came here seeking a better life, and brought with them experiences and things that once shared could improve the nation as a whole. Everyone coming here was to desire being American and offer the best they had to improve our country. Over a few years, that instruction ceased and was replaced by multiculturalism. It was severely pushed in college where every culture was considered equivalent to every other – actual experience and observation were to be omitted at this point. I was contemplating this and it suddenly occurred that the one culture always excluded was American. Our culture was considered bad, flawed, in need of repair, etc. If every culture is equivalent, how can ours be lesser? Only in a political agenda that seeks our demise.

I just think we are seeing the end result of a bureaucracy that has no accountability and the ability to be used by the current regime for shake-down money.
If you have a pleasant mood, just beware of the potential change after reading this:
This is perfect demonstration of the reason I keep calling for its dissolution.

I was in the middle of a dream when an annoying noise interrupted the internal bard. While getting ready for the morning, I realized a possible reason for the application and belief in Keyensian economics.
Consider the formation of relationship, trust, and anticipation. The child grows, experiments in the world with the basic items presented and learns to interact with the parent. This interaction leads to a base feeling of whether they may trust, be afraid, or ambivalent about their relationships. Those initial feelings formed from initial interaction are difficult to alter. Economically, I believe it is the same thing. There are a group of individuals who have their economic experience within a system running on a budget – school, government, charity. They are not directly involved in creating things of wealth, only at splitting up what has been set for the system. Therefore, it applies – the thought that someone gets more only because someone else gets less. (sidebar- if they truly believe that, then a rich one demonstrates disdain for the poor since s/he has money from them.) There is a finite pie which has to be cut for the system’s task at hand. The bigger a single piece, the smaller other pieces.
How is the money applied to the system? That concept is lost – from watching these individuals. I have the impression that they believe money is applied into they system like them siphoning out the gas tank of an RV parked while the family works on a camp fire and building a teepee. The gas has been taken and no thought is given to how the family puts the gas back into the tank. Further, the family is supposed to be thankful for the privilege of placing gas back into the tank for the action to occur again. They have never had to perform the actions necessary to obtain the gas apart from the act of taking it. Policies coming from this mindset force a need for protection. I have heard on the radio how business have a surplus of cash. They have a surplus because businesses exist to make a profit and cannot trust the present leadership to allow them their basic task. They are holding the gas in the tank to the best of their ability, so that when it is time to move, the RV will be able.
(lastly – this is assuming simply the wrongheadedness applied to the leadership and not, as I believe, the desire to destroy our economy.)

Progressives think that progress is control over you.
To get that pow’r there is almost nothing they won’t do,
From obfuscation, lies and cheating, crass ignoring laws,
Intimidation, propaganda, bullies in the halls.
So freedom loving people, just remember when you see,
those vacuous pronouncements, propaganda licensee,
providing glavlit’s information meant to demonize,
We freedom loving people they just want to penalize.
Remember bullies can’t stand up to truthful scrutiny.
So say it simply, say it often, say it truthfully.
We have a constitution we just need to implement,
The wise words that are placed, our founding father’s true intent.

I read a book some time ago and looked up associated information online as the book was an intriguing analysis of breast cancer and the causal agent being bras. I can hear all the cringing and fussing already, but if you are still with me consider their argument. Lymphatic channels are a one-way system that take the debris from the cells out through the superior vena cava which eventually gets flushed through the kidneys. Besides the debris, there are also toxins and cellular waste that are removed by this system. The location of these channels are very much surface oriented with only body movement as the source of flow for the contents. Because of their location and lack of force to move contents, it is easy to occlude these vessels and maintain the contents in the tissues instead of removing the contents per design. Yes, the bra is the pressure agent maintaining the wastes and toxins in the tissues of the breast and after that point, all the other observations – family heritage, nutrition, general health, etc apply. The book argues that if the bra were removed, the body would function as designed, and reduce cancer. The authors noted in societies where bras are not known, cancer is almost extinct. For any interested, the book is “Dressed to Kill.”

Now, for the sake of mind play, let’s say that I have been appointed the director of Health and Human Services. Congress has just given me a blank slate to decide how to best approach the health of the nation and whatever I say has the force of law. Also, realize that I have not been elected, so the decisions I make cannot be addressed by the population being effected by them. I cannot be voted out of office. Bras have a negative effect on the body and potential to cause cancer charging the system with costs for chemotherapy and surgery, therefore bra wearing needs to be discouraged. (hear certain male voices shout- hear, hear) As director with the force of law, I now declare that anyone wearing a bra must pay a health tax of 100% of purchase price, plus allow only mastectomy with 5FU chemotherapy – only – should a lump be found at any required annual physical. Any other health care must be paid cash – in Great Britain. The mobs will yell, but realize that without election, there can be no consequence for the giver of this edict. (side note – isn’t that why dictatorships change at the point of a gun?)
The population needs to “get over it” and begin to be used to saggy front sides like were seen before the advent of the bra in the early 1900’s. We’re just going back to the “good old days.” I can hear the adverts now. Bras have a cancer producing association greater than cigarettes to lung cancer. Pictures of metastasized breast are required to be placed on each bra tag covering at least 1/2 of the space.
Children in school will have to take a class – or have the subject mentioned at least 10 times per month that bras cause breast cancer, and the saggy boob is beautiful. (While all the breasts in Health and Human Services are held with push-up quality.)
Let’s close the mind game. I have demonstrated the reason all these bureaucracies need to be closed. The same idea can be applied to department of energy, education, health, TSA, and any of the myriad groups of unelected individuals who have been given permission to tell us how to run our lives under the protection of unaccountability and exemption from their own rules.

I went out to a restaurant with a friend this morning. The thing that looked good – considering my appetite and cost – was a sausage biscuit and scrambled egg. That was my order. Simple straightforward and adequate for the task at hand. An appropriate number of minutes later a couple of plates arrived – scrambled eggs, 2 sausage, hashbrowns, 2 biscuits and gravy. This was my first time to this restaurant in maybe a year and my companion said that there was a saying about ordering there. “You order what you want, and they bring you what they want you to have.” My friend picked up the bill, and I got the tip, so I don’t know what they actually charged for the farmer’s feast that was brought on a budgeted order.
