When you have this, and this how can one not view you as a sex object?  As much as the breasts have been associated with sex, they are actually production factories for the nourishment of the babies.  The vagina, however, is the domain of sex and the passageway for the baby resulting therefrom.  I wonder how many of these females dressing in this manner, would also yell about being viewed as a sex object.  Sorry, my little snowflake, we are just noting how you want to present yourself.  As much as the 50’s have been denigrated, the women then dressed in a feminine fashion, without the sexualization popular today.  As an easy example, how many snowflakes of character played beside the Duke?  Of all the movies I have watched, I can’t think of one.  Every one of them showed strong character, and very female.  For a reminder, watch True Grit.  Oh for the good old days.  At least we have some movies for the memory stimulation.  The young females growing up today have very poor examples of behavior to emulate.


I have woken up this morning a little on the sore side.  Nothing out of the ordinary, mind you.  After all, we had quite a day yesterday.  Between the two of us: ran through laundry including stripping and remaking the bed, made breakfast, remade the bed, put 10 pounds of chicken in oven to slow cook,  go to ladies’ meeting at church, shop for Valentine’s items, finish digging holes for base of water tank, cut reinforcing bar and then pour concrete, go to kidinbox’s house to see their progress on pulling the tub and digging out the sewer line (our plan is to finish pulling out the tub today), marinate chicken legs (another set) in balsamic vinegarette dressing for the grill, make pasta salad to go with the chicken, cook on the grill, remove chicken from the baked quarters until it was just meat, place back on pan with a general spice application and place back in the 200 degree oven for 2 more hours then divide up into three meal-sized bags, look up pruning on the web in anticipation of working on the 4 fruit trees.  I have a wonder occasionally how people have time to watch TV.  Oh, I just remembered – ran through the general number on taxes and printed out the forms from IRS website to see how much the leaches are taking out of us this year.  It wasn’t as much as last year, so yea.  In other words, they already sucked out of our checks and this bill is smaller.  That’s how my day went yesterday.

I read an article by Dennis Prager and noted interesting analysis of the background for a second civil war.  Actually, this has been going on for some time and first manifested itself in a major way in the coverage of the Vietnam war.  (I will grant that themes were starting to change in the 60’s in popular television shows)  Consider the difference between the facts of the battle and Walter Cronkite’s presentation.  The media and education as well as entertainment have been the vehicles for changing society.

As for the need to battle, the problem with conservatives and those freedom loving Americans is that we are busy living our lives and not spending work time protesting this and that.  The concept that this is actually a war is not in the conservative psyche yet.  Once it is, though, I agree with the commenters that any hot war will be short lived.  That said, however, I don’t see much in the concept of replacement of those cultural forces causing the disruption (teachers, entertainers, news-crews).  That replacement and long-time training will be required to reset the culture to a more sustainable, conservative, freedom-loving, responsible-adult culture.  After all, kids have been taught for decades about the evils of the United States and taught to hate this country.  They are now adults acting out the training received.  Change won’t happen in a few years.  It will take a few decades. It also won’t happen until conservatives and freedom-loving Americans recognize the need to be in the battle.

Lastly, we will need a judiciary accepting the defense of our original institutions.  Many of the liberal infections in this country have come by way of the judiciary as regular legislation would not support such changes.  This includes all up to the Supreme Court which erroneously stated that the government could force an individual to purchase another individual’s product.  (Just as a quick example)

I heard a rumor about charges being filed for rioting and decided to see if there were any facts on that subject.  On the search engine were link after link of references to Trump’s America where there is a wave of repression.  I didn’t click on any of those links, I don’t think my antacids would cover the reaction.  Just a question or two.  In what country is it legal to break and destroy other people’s property without consequence?  I guess here, if you consider the actions in a few cities during Zero’s terms.  There were protests over a cop shooting an armed and attacking thug, and the base personalities of the population were revealed.  How many charges were filed on those who rioted a couple years ago?  Apparently, violating the law may now have consequence.  What a concept!

I am happy today that the era of Zero is coming to an end.  On Hannity, yesterday, he described it as the end of a nightmare.  I don’t really agree.  Maybe I’m more from the medical perspective, so I see this as the removal of a tick.  The body and head may be gone with the immediate injury healing rather quickly, though the problem remains of the viruses and bacteria which have been injected into the systems.  They will take a multitude of time and effort to remove and cause much discomfort in the mean time.  In certain cases, the injuries may be permanent and the host required to operate indefinitely with those deficits.

I know that’s a bit of a downer mood-wise, but I’m hoping it’s an honest perspective.  What remains to cure is only the military, culture, media, school, intelligence, bureaucracy, tax system, judicial waywardness, immigration, jobs, world relationships and that’s just off the top of my head.  The good news is that Zero won’t be causing any more issues there – in the direct sense.  The bad news is that the history left will take a long time to heal – for those areas that have ability to be changed.  In other words, this is not the end.  It’s the beginning.  It’s not the time to relax, it’s the time to tell the representatives to get busy – and not on their next election cycle either.

I work in a neurologist’s office.  My doctor is a specialist who analyzes body operations according to the neurological standpoint.  This doctor further uses electrical analysis to decide what nerves are having problems and what diagnoses are related to the problems presenting.  This doctor went to college, then medical school, then residency, then fellowship.  I would placed in the realm of highly skilled.  What is the medical profession?  Back in the 80’s, the federal government decided that when people needed help, it was up to the medical professionals to provide that help – without being paid.  After all, when people need help, why should we worry about such a thing as compensation?  This is where the free ER visits originated and by the way, where the removal of ER’s in California originated.  It is also where the philosophy of “your labor belongs to me” originated as well.  We have patients who have the full expectation that our medical services should be free of charge.  After all, their health matters, doesn’t it?  Why should we make money off of their health?  Well, when was the last time someone went into a restaurant and told them that their food was necessary for life, and therefore should be free of charge?  In the end, the cost of the services is compensation for the time of the server.  That is the bottom line.  A person pays for the painter because that person spent their time and skill applying a coating in a pleasing fashion.  A person pays the restaurant as they spent their time and skill cooking the meal.  A person pays at the gas pump as that business – a little less directly – provides the result of time and effort of individuals to remove the fuel from the ground and turn it into a source of usable power.

There are three reasons for a person to enter into medicine.  There are plenty more, but here are a few obvious ones at the start.  My doctor mentioned getting into neurology because it was difficult.  There was a challenge in ascertaining neurological problems by looking at squiggly lines and numerical results of a needle placed in a muscle.  Treatments for neurological issues are not like an antibiotic which removes the bacteria and the person is “cured.”  We tend towards long-term treatments to make the symptoms of whatever issue more tolerable.  The problem will never be removed.  Another possibility of entering the profession is to help people.  There is a good feeling to provide decent information and have the person utilize it for their betterment.  Lastly, there is the income related to utilizing one’s skills.  Doctors maintain a good income.  Similar to the professional athletes, the reason for the higher income is that fewer individuals can do the task.  It is simply a notation of the marketplace, that those professions having skills that fewer individuals can do, allow incomes higher than the normal level.

Here we get to the nub of the idea.  Medicine is a business.  We, in the business, spend our time learning skills and giving our time in anticipation of receiving income related to our expenditures.  We also have bills.  Just because we have chosen a “helping profession” doesn’t mean our time is less valuable.  As the market dictates, certain professions have a higher than average income as the skills to be in that profession are not as prevalent.  Instead of those who look at us and think “rich doc”, maybe they should look and say “12 years of school”.  I had an acquaintance who finished up a MD PHD by the age of 29.  There was still residence and fellowship to go.  This person was in a meeting with a loan officer for a mortgage.  The mortgage officer asked about a job and my acquaintance stated she had nothing but little assistant jobs here an there.  The officer then asked about school and my acquaintance asked about college, or later training.  The officer stated everything, going back to kindergarten.  My acquaintance stated 24 years.  Let that sink in for a moment.  Realize that more training was going to begin as well.  How much of this doctor’s time should be free for the patient?   Wasn’t the purpose of all that training to become skilled in the anticipation of helping people and being compensated for that time?  Just like a hair-dresser going to training and then the workplace, the doctor spends time in school in anticipation of being compensated.  It is a job.  It is business.


The fall of Fort Fisher and ultimate surrender at Bennett Place led to the carnival of corruption that Vance illuminated. We should remember what occurred at Fort Fisher in mid-January 1865 for what it was and what it led to — the ending of an American struggle for freedom and independence, the consent of the governed to rule themselves. This is the sad fact that we should observe, and be cognizant of when gazing at the great earthen fortress.

It has taken a long time for the concept that was our government to be destroyed.  There are a few symbolic pieces remaining, but for the most part our founders would not recognize this country.  I’m afraid they would even wonder at the name and ask what happened to their rich tapestry of federalism.  This article shows the beginning of the end.  The 17th amendment cemented the downfall of state preeminence and the rise of the central government.  Income tax in 1913 further encroached the federal government into the private personal dealings of the citizens and the supreme court in the 30’s began the systematic removal of recognition of freedoms clearly stated in the Bill of Rights.  You will note that during the telling of the battle of the fort, how the descriptions are skewed to provide an altered history favoring the aggressors.  One tactic of totalitarians is to rewrite history.  It happens today even before the news is cold.  I had mentioned earlier that when kidinbox was in school, I took a little time in a “history” book where it was told that the Republicans opposed with Clinton and decided to impeach him.  There was not a single syllable about obstruction of justice or perjury – an action which would put any of the rest of us in prison.  History had become propaganda.  It isn’t different here with the presentation of the fort.  I would advise to do your own study and learn history from something other than a modern politically correct book.  Remember that the origin of “politically correct” was Marxism – the idea that once one could control the ideas allowed to be presented, even a person’s thoughts would be politically correct.
