Question: Why do people say “I’m sorry?”

Multiple-choice…

1.) Tradition

2.) Habit

3.) Because etiquette demands it.

Everything else is contrived…

According to Webster: “con·trived,” Planned or calculated; not spontaneous.

Which is not to be confused with (creation), ..as only “God” participates in creation.

Question: What about philosophy or psychology, are they contrived?

According to Webster: “phi·los·o·phy,” (take your pick) …

1.) Love and pursuit of wisdom by intellectual means and moral self-discipline.

2.) The investigation of causes and laws underlying reality.

3.) A system of philosophical inquiry or demonstration.

4.) Inquiry into the nature of things based on logical reasoning rather than empirical methods.

5.) The critique and analysis of fundamental beliefs as they come to be conceptualized and formulated.

6.) The synthesis of all learning.

10.) A system of motivating concepts or principles: the philosophy of a culture.

11.) A basic theory; a viewpoint: an original philosophy of advertising.

12.) The system of values by which one lives: has an unusual philosophy of life.

Think about it, from Socrates to Whoopi Goldberg, what is a philosopher other than a man or a woman who says what he or she thinks.

Socrates, 470/469 BC – 399 BC) was a classical Greek (Athenian) philosopher. Credited as one of the founders of Western philosophy, he is an enigmatic figure known chiefly through the accounts of later classical writers, especially the writings of his students Plato and Xenophon and the plays of his contemporary Aristophanes.

Many would claim that Plato’s dialogues are the most comprehensive accounts of Socrates to survive from antiquity.

Through his portrayal in Plato’s dialogues, Socrates has become renowned for his contribution to the field of ethics, and it is this Platonic Socrates who lends his name to the concepts of Socratic irony and the Socratic method, or elenchus.

The latter remains a commonly used tool in a wide range of discussions, and is a type of pedagogy in which a series of questions is asked not only to draw individual answers, but also to encourage fundamental insight into the issue at hand. Plato’s Socrates also made important and lasting contributions to the field of epistemology, and the influence of his ideas and approach remains a strong foundation for much western philosophy that followed.

Socrates - Greek philosopher 1

In other words, Socrates talked and people listened. As to why people listened to Socrates? Your guess is as good as mine, although (stepping into the minefield of presumption), it would be my guess that the man had a certain charisma.

Continuing…

According to Webster: “psy·chol·o·gy,” (take your pick) …

1.) The science that deals with mental processes and behavior.

2.) The emotional and behavioral characteristics of an individual, a group, or an activity: the psychology of war.

3.) Subtle tactical action or argument used to manipulate or influence another.

4.) Philosophy. The branch of metaphysics that studies the soul, the mind, and the relationship of life and mind to the functions of the body.

Again, from the renowned Sigmund Freud to Dr. Phil, what is a psychologist other than a self aggrandized individual who believes that if you don’t believe what he believes, then what you believe isn’t worth believing.

When I was a kid in school and I let my mouth overload my ass, – it was a no-brainer, – I was “summarily” sent to the principal’s office. 

and rightly so 1

As disrupting a class (to spirit attention), was indisputably irresponsible.

The principal at my first high school, Mr. Robertson, was a responsible no-nonsense individual in the prosecution of his job. He was also a fair man and a man with a worthy sense of humor.

Mr. Robinson had a paddle made of oak and finished as fine as the stock on $1000 rifle. As memory serves, it was about three feet long, an inch-thick and six inches wide with “one inch holes” bored throughout to decrease drag as he brought it to bear against an offenders backside.

Question: On the numerous occasions that I experienced Mr. Robinson’s grand Oak paddle, was he to blame, ..or was I?

So now that you understand that (tradition dictates) that it’s not proper to shoot the sheriff, let’s move on…

The U.S. Constitution, (at least in my opinion), is the fairest and most responsible document ever written to govern any group of individuals (ever) in the history of the world.

America’s First Amendment guarantees an American citizen the inalienable right to free speech…

A right that simply isn’t available in countries like Russia and China, or in the “mock democracies” throughout the Middle East, Africa and South America.

Our first amendment also guarantees an American citizen the inalienable right to a free press…

A right that I avail myself of every morning when I post my thoughts and opinions.

Our first amendment also guarantees an American citizen the inalienable right to worship as they see fit, ..as well as access to voice their concerns and grievances when “our” elected officials step (over) the line.

Our founding fathers, although University educated, were in touch with and understood the needs of the common man.

Consequently, the Second Amendment they penned was our  inalienable, “Right to Keep and Bear Arms.”

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

Section 2. Representatives shall be apportioned among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole number of persons in each State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at any election for the choice of electors for President and Vice President of the United States, Representatives in Congress, the Executive and Judicial officers of a State, or the members of the Legislature thereof, is denied to any of the male inhabitants of such State, being twenty-one years of age, and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for participation in rebellion, or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male citizens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State.

Section 3. No person shall be a Senator or Representative in Congress, or elector of President and Vice President, or hold any office, civil or military, under the United States, or under any State, who, having previously taken an oath, as a member of Congress, or as an officer of the United States, or as a member of any State legislature, or as an executive or judicial officer of any State, to support the Constitution of the United States, shall have engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the same, or given aid or comfort to the enemies thereof. But Congress may, by a vote of two-thirds of each House, remove such disability.

Section 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned. But neither the United States nor any State shall assume or pay any debt or obligation incurred in aid of insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or any claim for the loss or emancipation of any slave; but all such debts, obligations and claims shall be held illegal and void.

Section 5. The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article.

In total to date, the U.S. Constitution has been amended 27 times.

Question: What is the number one problem in America?

In my opinion, (and that’s what we’re working with here), the number one problem in America is our failing economy.

Question: Why is America’s economy failing, ..is it Barack Obama’s fault?

Again, (in my opinion), absolutely not! Barack Obama, albeit currently holding the office of president, ..(in truth), is nothing more than a pawn for the money lenders.

Question: Who are the money lenders?

The most notable, (not simply my opinion), is without a doubt the Rothschild family as they are the spearhead and power…

..behind America’s “Federal Reserve Banking system,” that is a private (shareholder held), “U.S. Corporation” that came into existence in 1913, when Pres. Woodrow Wilson signed the Federal Reserve banking act of 1913 into law, ..in return for an $80,000 campaign contribution.

control the money 2a

Accordingly, the “issue and valuing” of the American dollar, (the world standard) has been controlled by the Rothschild family and the Bank of England now for the last 101 years.

By the letter of the law as written by our founding fathers, the (issue and valuing) of America’s currency is a “duty” charged to the U.S. Congress and it was “specifically written” that the responsibility was not to be outsourced.

According to Webster: “re·spon·si·bil·i·ty,” Something for which one is responsible; a duty, an obligation, or a burden.

Of course all those in the Congress that convened in 1913 to support Woodrow Wilson and deny their responsibility to the American people are dead and gone now.

Nevertheless, the responsibility and the duties charged to the Congress as provided by the Constitution in its original form are not dead, nor are they gone…

Hello Ronald, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comment and your opinion…

With that said now, it is (my humble opinion) that you need a refresher course on the meaning of conservatism.

According to Webster: “con·ser·va·tism,” 1. The inclination, especially in politics, (to maintain the existing) or traditional order.

2. A political philosophy or attitude emphasizing (respect for traditional institutions), “distrust” of (government activism), and (opposition to sudden change) in the “established” order.

3. Caution or moderation, as in behavior or outlook.

Question: “Where and when” (did I) publish (anything) that heralds the idea I’m interested in (helping) everyone?

America does not belong to the people we elect, America belongs to us, “we the people.”

Question: When are you “brainwashed academics” going to come to understand that?

The Second Amendment wasn’t written only as a means to protect us, “we the people”…

Minuteman statue 2

..the Second Amendment was written to provide “we the people” with the means to protect ourselves and “our” Nation.

As to my status as a bigot, I stand proud as a bigot opposed to stupidity…

I believe in value given for value received.

According to Webster: “val·ue,” An amount, as of goods, services, or money, considered to be a fair and suitable equivalent for something else.

Frederick Douglass 1a

(Frederick Douglass).

Frederick Douglass, February 1818 – February 20, 1895), was an African-American social reformer, orator, writer and statesman.

After escaping from slavery, Douglas became a leader of the abolitionist movement, gaining notice for his dazzling oratoryand incisive antislavery writing.

He stood as a living counter-example to the (slaveholders’) arguments that slaves “lacked the intellectual capacity” to function as independent American citizens.

Douglass wrote several autobiographies. He eloquently described his experiences as a slave in his 1845 autobiography, …

“Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass,

an American Slave.

..which became a bestseller and influential in supporting abolition, as did the second, …

“My Bondage and My Freedom (1855).”

After the Civil War, he remained an active campaigner against slavery and wrote his last autobiography, …

“Life and Times of Frederick Douglass.”

First published in 1881 and revised in 1892, which covered events through and after the Civil War.

Douglass also actively supported women’s suffrage, and held several public offices.

Without his approval, Douglass became the first African American nominated for Vice President of the United States as the running mate of Victoria Woodhull on the “Equal Rights Party” ticket.

A firm believer in the equality of all people, whether black, female, Native American, or recent immigrant, Douglass famously said, …

First I’d like to tell you how much I enjoy your website, before telling you how much I don’t care about what the damn fools in California do.

I was born in southern California and lived there up until 1988, (Oceanside), (Mission Viejo), then (Lancaster). It was a nice place to live in the 50s, then the 60s came along and brought us surfers and hippies and they didn’t leave.

Lancaster was tolerable through most of the 80s, but then you being from California as well, I don’t have to tell you.

For me personally if I was doing the cutting, I would divide the state into one inch squares and deed it equally among everyone who gets across the border before next Thursday at 6 o’clock. Matt.

Hello Matt, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for enjoying what I write. I was born in Lompoc, California and we moved around quite a lot as well, as my father enjoyed explicating; “We moved every time the rent came do.”

When I was three weeks old we moved from Lompoc, to Ventura, into a house with its backdoor (depending on the tide), between 30 and 60 feet from the water.

Not that I have any memories of that house, as within days my father received his draft notice from Uncle Sam.

My father always wanted a place right on the beach, but my mother didn’t care for sweeping sand, consequently as soon as my father departed for boot camp, we moved to, (El Rio), for three months, then on into Oxnard proper, and/or, into a military housing project where my family spent the duration of the second world war.

But enough about me, I totally love your idea about splitting up California, albeit I might be your only fan, as God blessed few people with my maniacal sense of humor.
