ANNIVERSARY OF 9/11 AND A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE!

September 12th, 2018

To this day, I vividly remembered Pearl Harbor; and I felt the same about experiencing November 11, 2001; however, my response was to consider WHY the Saudi Arabian bin Laden made his attack. Others of course have no idea of why bin Laden attack, they only considered bin Laden was a Muslim; they apparently hate Muslims because they are Muslim and they probably don’t even know any Muslims.


NEW YORK 9/11

And personally, I was relieved to learn the perpetrator of 9/11 was a vicious terrorist and not an act of war, but instead a crime; there was no need for war.

So I opposed President W. Bush’s 2001 invasion of Afghanistan, who had nothing to do with the Saudi Arabian bin Laden’s “TERRORIST ATTACK”. Afghanistan WAS NEVER A THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!


GRAVE OF AMERICAN MUSLIM SOLDIER WHO WAS KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN

It is unfortunate that ignorant Americans are only concerned with, who of what religion, made a heinous attack of America, without concern for “why”.

Bin Laden made his heinous attack on America, because American President George Herman Bush put an American military base in the Saudi Arabian Muslim Holy Land in 1992, thereby defiling the Muslim Holy Land, and over the objection of 1.6 billion Muslims in the world.


MUSLIMS PRAYING IN SAUDI ARABIAN MUSLIM HOLY LAND

Of course, that does not justify Bin Laden’s heinous attack of 9/11, however it is bin Laden’s Reason for his attack. I cannot Justify bin Laden’s attack any more than I can Justify Christianity’s Inquisition and Crusades. I cannot justify religions hatred.

You are right, the Saudi Arabian bin Laden was a Muslim, but that is not why he attacked America; he attacked America because America defiled his Muslim religion, and there is a difference. Further, I personally have relatives who are Muslim, and I know some other Muslims, and they did not and would not make heinous terrorist attacks on America for defiling their religion.

Personally, I was brought up a Christian and became a Christian; I was taught to love my neighbors and love (have compassion for) my enemies and that is what I do. And that is what my Muslim personal relatives and friends do. Christians who express hatred for Muslims and other religions are not Christians (nor are they little “d” democrats) as far as I am concerned.

Further, people who blame others for doing bad things based on who they are and not why they did it, are stupid; neither do I blame people for being stupid, rather I have compassion for them.

SHORT HISTORY LESSON FOR IGNORANT AMERICANS WHO DON’T KNOW HOW AMERICA CAME TO HAVE A FASCIST PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS IN 2018!

September 10th, 2018

WHEN YOU SAY THAT AMERICA IS NOT A DEMOCRATIC REPUBLIC, IT MEANS YOU ARE A FASCIST JOHN BIRCH SOCIETY MEMBER; John Birch Society Blue Book, p.124 ” . . . democracy is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.” (Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.) “Our founding fathers . . . visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.” The John Birch Society Blue Book is the John Birch Society manifesto!

The John Birch Society, Koch brothers’ financed the John Birch Society “front group”, the Republican Party’s “Tea Party”. John Birch Society Blue Book: “We would organize fronts—little fronts, big fronts, temporary fronts, permanent fronts, all kinds of fronts . . . pp. 66-8

Then in Mid-Term elections in 2012, the John Birch Society front Group, the Republican Tea Party bought the election (using “Citizens United”), and now Americans are subjected to the John Birch Society Congress that does not believe America is a democratic Republic; and, the Congress has a President Trump who never mentions American democracy!

The Republican John Bircher/Tea Party won the 2012 elections because of money spent due to the Republican majority of the US Supreme Court who decided “Citizens United”, in an election in which “HALF” OF REGISTERED VOTERS DID NOT VOTE BECAUSE ALL CONGRESSIONAL CANDIDATES WERE SO BAD VOTERS DIDN’T HAVE ANYONE THEY WANTED TO VOTE FOR.

This is how and why America today is government by a congress and president who does not believe America is a democracy.

Americans who do not know American History are condemned to lose their democracy to a fascist Congress and President; Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation often race and stands for a centralized autocratic, often militaristic government.”

Sad so sad, America’s fascist President and Congress is so bad!

JUST WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF ANY GOVERNMENT? YOU NEED TO KNOW!

September 8th, 2018

IF YOU STUDY GOVERNMENT, YOU WOULD BE AWARE THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE PURPOSE FOR “ANY GOVERNMENT”, AND THAT IS TO PROVIDE FOR THE PEOPLE, ALL NECESSITIES OF LIFE FOR THE PEOPLE COLLECTIVELY THAT THEY CANNOT PROVIDE FOR THEIR SELF AS INDIVIDUALS. THAT IS SOCIALISM.

SOCIALISM IS THE BASIS FOR ANY GOVERNMENT.

IN AMERICA THE U.S. ARMY IS SOCIALISM, STREETS ARE SOCIALISM, POLICE ARE SOCIALISM, FIREMEN ARE SOCIALISM, THE POST OFFICE IS SOCIALISM AND PROVIDED FOR IN THE US CONSTITUTION.

THE ONLY PROVISION FOR CAPITALISM IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION IS THE FOURTH AMENDMENT: Amendment IV: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

UNFORTUNATELY, MOST AMERICANS ARE IGNORANT ABOUT THE PROPOSE OF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT AND THE ONLY PURPOSE OF ANY GOVERNMENT. THE US CONSTITUTION SPECIFICALLY PROVIDES FOR SOCIALISM IN AMERICA IN THE PREAMBLE: Preamble to the U.S. Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”

THE REAL BLESSINGS OF CAPITALISM, AS PROVIDED FOR IN THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, IS THAT IT PROVIDES FOR A CITIZEN TO BENEFIT FROM HIS OWN INGENUITY AND CREATIVITY AS PROVIDED IN INDIVIDUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OF THE IV AMENDMENT.

UNFORTUNATELY, U.S. BUSINESSES TEND TO CREATE CORPORATE CONGLOMERATE MONOPOLIES AND CAN CHARGE WHATEVER PRICE THEY WANT BECAUSE SUPPLY AND DEMAND ARE CONTROLLED BY THE CORPORATE CONGLOMERATES.
REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT TEDDY ROOSEVELT, THE “TRUST BUSTER”, IS THE KIND OF PRESIDENT AMERICA NEEDS TODAY; I WOULD CERTAINLY VOTE FOR HIM; HE BELIEVED THAT CORPORATIONS NEED TO BE CONTROLLED FOR THE BENEFIT OF CONSUMERS AND CONSUMERS ARE “THE PEOPLE”, YOU AND ME!
“The great corporations which we have grown to speak of rather loosely as trusts are the creatures of the State, and the State not only has the right to control them, but it is duty bound to control them wherever the need of such control is shown.” ― Theodore Roosevelt https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/47025-the-great-corporations-which-we-have-grown-to-speak-of

“The Constitution guarantees protection to property, and we must make that promise good. But it does not give the right of suffrage to any corporation…. There can be no effective control of corporations while their political activity remains. To put an end to it will be neither a short nor an easy task, but it can be done…Corporate expenditures for political purposes, and especially such expenditures by public-service corporations, have supplied one of the principal sources of corruption in our political affairs.”

TEACHING BY MY RULES; HOW TEACHERS SHOULD TEACH SCHOOL!

September 1st, 2018

Today, I was reflecting on my original teaching methodology, and wrote this for what it is worth:

Personally, I am a retired American public school teacher; I became a teacher, primarily because I was personally harassed by 2 different sadistic teachers in my 12 years of public education; it taught me at an early age, not to trust all adults. And, I vowed to change education, the world, and teachers, for the benefit of the students; and I failed.


SOCRATES

However, I personally succeeded to a degree; I never punished a student while teaching, and if any of my students failed becoming decent human beings, and informed citizens, I blamed myself. Further, I have always been convinced THERE IS NO PLACE IN SCHOOL FOR PUNISHMENT. AND, HERE IS WHY?

On my first day of teaching school, I told my students, “You have to be here every day and I have to be here every day, at the same time. I propose you and I agree to enjoy our hour together, perhaps learn something important, but look forward to being here together, every school day.

“We must have rules, of course; so to make it easy, we will have only one rule; everyone in here, including me, must respect every other person in this classroom. I will behave as you do. And if someone breaks that rule, whether student or teacher, the others will remind that person of our one rule.”


JESUS

In all probability, the students thought that “As a teacher, I was insane, however it was an opportunity to spend at least one hour of public school each school day, without fear, boredom, or hassle.” The rest was up to me to abide our rule, me the teacher!

As a teacher, it was my responsibility to teach students “what they needed to know” about the subject and what was acceptable behavior in our society. (Correspondence schools, and computerized classes do not work in this regard.)

One instance, I do remember so well, in my senior Government Class, one young man kept talking to another student, interrupting class and I deliberately ignored it, thinking he would shut up. Finally, other students started telling the kid to “shut up, you are disturbing the class”! He didn’t.

So, I ask him to come outside our door with me, and told him there, “Look, this is not punishment,” I said intentionally, “but you are disturbing class for all of the rest of us; and so, you stand out here until our class is over.” He did, we did, and he never interrupted class again. To me that is effective teaching and I did not consider my part, punishing him.

Teachers are not to train students to be good employees, trained in a job, or indoctrinated in any religious or political concepts. Public school students are in school to learn how to succeed in life and become good citizens in American democracy, regardless of what their future holds for them.

In the first year of college, in the first psychology class, a college student (prospective teacher) learns that the best way to teach behavior is by being a good role model; and, this is by far, the hardest part of teaching for me! However I behaved in the classroom, the students were allowed behave in the same way; however I treated the students, they were OK to treat others the same way.

Psychology teaches, that use of punishment teaches children other things too, other than acceptable behavior; for example it teaches that a person’s use of punishment, persons making judgement of other people, and acts of punishment are acceptable behavior in our society. And, I do not think so!


JOHN DEWEY

Teachers are not meant to be policemen, judges, or parents to students.

Though teachers are by law expected to be “in loco parentis”, translated it means the teacher will protect and cherish the student as if they are the student’s parent, in the absence of the actual parent!

“In loco parentis” DOES NOT mean teachers are expected to spank or punish students like some parents do!

If a teacher is expected to teach students the value of schooling and learning, why in the world would a teacher keep a student after school as “punishment”!

A teacher who does not “love their neighbor” nor “love their enemies” should NOT be in the teaching business; this means that every teacher should have some compassion for all living beings, including those they are expected to teach.

Every student of mine was treated equally; normal adults tend to believe that any and all adults, are superior to children (including adolescents); this is not true. All children are born with all the brains they will ever have and all children are born with the ability to think and learn! A child’s intelligence may “exceed or be less than that of an adult”!

Obviously, some of my students were of superior intelligence than me and I acknowledge the fact, and some of my students had less intelligence than me; however, I interacted equally to all students. We live in a democracy!

My mother had taught me as a child that all living creatures were equal under God and the U.S. Constitution. I agree; and my mom said, “God counts each sparrow’s fall”, and she did not particularly care for sparrows!


BHUDDA

Unfortunately, not many teachers during my teaching career agreed with my concept of teaching; pity!

And, I taught student teachers in the university for four years; I taught those student teachers just like I taught in the public school classroom. Now, I have mixed feelings of my influence?

For several years I was an administrator in a public school and was required to supervise and evaluate teachers assigned to me; I evaluated those teachers based on my concept of “acceptable teaching”. Now, I have mixed feelings of my influence?

However personally, I believe in my teaching methods!

TEARS SHED FOR THE “D.C. DEMOCRATIC PARTY ESTABLISHMENT” ARE WASTED ON SELF-INFLICTED WOUNDS.

August 26th, 2018

Democrats are their own worst enemy. The D.C. Establishment Democrats are the problem; they believe they represent the party and not the People. Their 2016 convention was rigged, with super delegates of the Democratic D.C. Establishment and not representative of the voters (the People).

And, this is exasperation for voters looking for candidates that represents People’s interests.

To the Democratic D.C. Establishment, elections are about money and the corporations have the money to buy elections and candidates.

Democrats should look at the record, and who votes for whom!

The Democratic D.C. Establishment should take look at the past!

In 2000 Gore lost! In 2004 Kerry lost!

In 2008, a Black Man won the Primary and election because the People wanted health care and opposed the D.C. Establishment primary candidates! In 2012, Obama won because he came through for the People with healthcare, the greatest need of the People, today!

Then in 2016, Hillary Clinton lost the election because she was supported by Wall Street. And, the D.C. Establishment “fixed” the primary and convention for the Establishment candidate, against the People’s candidate Bernie Sanders.

In 2016, Hillary complains because, the liberal progressive worker Democrats who supported her liberal progressive opponent Sanders in the primary, did not vote for her in the general election.

Instead, Hillary won the endorsement and vote of former REPUBLICAN President George Herman Bush, and lost the Electoral College and the Election to Donald Trump.

Does this explain the 2016 fiasco!

Democrats never learn!

The “Democratic D.C. Establishment” has forgotten the Democratic President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who won FOUR elections, because he was the People’s candidate and not the politician’s candidate.

The People voted for Roosevelt, because he provided relief boxes of food when the People were hungry! He founded the Civilian Conservation Corps when they needed work! And Roosevelt made the 8 hour day, forty hour week the law, providing more jobs for the People. Oh yes, and he Provided Social Security!

Then, in 2000 and 2004, Republican Candidates George W. Bush Jr. won the Presidency and, Trump won the 2016 election, because President George Bush Jr. and Donald Trump promised the People lower taxes for the wealthy which was to “trickle down” to the People and provide jobs for workers.

Can you believe it?

Actually, Republic Candidates did not win; instead it was the Democratic Candidates and the People who lost.

Today, the Democratic Establishment blames the Democratic liberal-progressive worker Voters, not for voting Republican, but for not voting for Democrats supported by corporate America, not voting at all, or for voting for a third party candidate!

The Democratic Party has a huge problem.

The problem is not the People!

IT IS TIME TO UPDATE AND CHANGE OUR U.S. CONSTITUTION!

August 11th, 2018

IF THOMAS JEFFERSON WERE ALIVE TODAY, HE WOULD BE APPALLED THAT WE HAD NOT CHANGED OUR CONSTITUTION TO COINCIDE WITH THE CHANGES IN TECHNOLOGY AND THE TIMES.

ACTUALLY, AMERICA NEEDS TO REWRITE THE US CONSTITUTION; AMERICA IS NO LONGER 13 SEPARATE FOREIGN COLONIES (STATES)! THOMAS JEFFERSON WOULD AGREE!

TODAY AMERICA SHOULD BE A UNITED PEOPLE OF AMERICA AND NOT A UNITED STATES OF AMERICA! THE CITIZENS OF THE AMERICAN STATES SHOULD BE COOPERATING AND NOT COMPETING; WE SHOULD BE AMERICANS AND NOT CALIFORNIANS, OR ALABAMIANS, OR NEW YORKER’S.

DEMOCRACY EXISTS TO A DEGREE; THE DIFFERENCES IN COLONIES WAS CAUSE FOR THE UNDEMOCRATIC “ELECTORAL COLLEGE” OF 1787. IT DOESN’T FIT AMERICA TODAY! AMERICANS ARE AMERICANS NO MATTER WHERE THEY LIVE.

EACH AMERICAN SHOULD HAVE ONE VOTE!

WE NEED TO CONSIDER THAT IN 1787, MEN DID NOT LIVE AS LONG AS TODAY; WE SHOULD HAVE NO LIFE TIME APPOINTMENTS IN OUR GOVERNMENT. JUSTICES OF THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD NOT SERVE FOR FIFTY YEARS!

TODAY THINGS CHANGE FAST; WE NEED TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT CAN BE CHANGED AS EVENTS CHANGE. OTHER GOVERNMENTS IN THE WORLD PROVIDE FOR THIS.

AMERICA HAS A NEED FOR MULTIPLE POLITICAL PARTIES, AND WHERE COOPERATION OF PARTIES IS NEEDED TO FORM A BALANCED GOVERNMENT. AMERICA’S TWO PARTY SYSTEM HAS FAILED US; WE NEED TO HAVE MORE COOPERATION AND LESS EXCLUSION. WE NEED A MULTIPLE PARTY CONGRESS!

TODAY, EACH STATE HAS ITS OWN ELECTIONS, RULES, AND CONCEPT OF CITIZENSHIP; WE SHOULD INSTEAD HAVE A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT ELECTORAL AGENCY THAT HAS RECORDS OF CITIZENSHIP AND ADDRESSES OF ALL CITIZENS AND IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL ELECTIONS.

HERE IS AMERICA’S ONE HUGE PROBLEM; OUR AMERICAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS NO RECORDS OF WHO LIVING IN AMERICA IS A CITIZEN AND WHO IS NOT, NOR WHERE EACH CITIZEN IS LIVING AT A GIVEN TIME. NOTE; THIS IS UNFORTUNATELY TRUE!

UNFORTUNATELY, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS TERRIBLE STATE OF AFFAIRS; AMERICANS PURPORTEDLY BELIEVE IF AMERICAN GOVERNMENT KNEW WHEN AND WHERE THEY WERE BORN AND WHERE THEY LIVE NOW, IT WOULD DEPRIVE THEM OF THEIR PRIVACY. THERE IS ONLY ONE WORD FOR THIS, STUPIDITY! A TRUE DEMOCRACY CAN BE TRUSTED BY THE PEOPLE.

WITH TODAY’S TECHNOLOGY, IT IS POSSIBLE FOR OUR AMERICAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO HAVE RECORDS OF ALL CITIZENS, AND WHERE THEY LIVE.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA COULD HAVE FEDERAL RECORDS, FEDERAL ELECTIONS, AND ELECTIONS COULD BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF A FEDERAL ELECTION AGENCY LIKE OTHER FEDERAL AGENCIES OF TRUST; WE WOULD BE A NATION OF AMERICANS AND NOT STATES.

THERE WOULD BE NO UNAUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS; THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WOULD HAVE A RECORD OF ALL AUTHORIZED IMMIGRANTS! THERE WOULD BE NO PURPOSE OF “A WALL” BETWEEN THE U.S.A AND MEXICO AND CANADA.

THIS IS WHAT I WOULD CONSIDER A GREAT CHANGE IN OUR AMERICAN DEMOCRACY.

PLEASE AMERICANS! STUDY OUR GOVERNMENT AND RECOGNIZE WHAT IS NEEDED TO MAKE AMERICA A DEMOCRACY OF TODAY! YOU HAVE TO REALLY WANT IT!

IF YOU AGREE, SHARE THIS WITH YOUR NEIGHBORS. YOU WON’T FIND IT ANYWHERE ELSE, UNFORTUNATELY!

AMERICA IS GUILTY OF CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY

June 20th, 2018

AMERICA’S PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP, IS NOW RECOGNIZED AS A SADISTIC FASCIST “PERSON”, BY DEFINITION. NOW, HE HAS COMMITTED CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY; TAKING CHILDREN AND BABIES FROM ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS WITHOUT A COURT HEARING! THOUSANDS A IMMIGRANT’S BABIES ARE BEING HELD WITHOUT CHARGES IN CAGES, BY TRUMP’S IMMIGRANT POLICE “ICE”!

THIS IS PRESIDENT TRUMP’S ULTIMATE CRIME; PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TAKEN THE CHILDREN OF MOTHERS AND FATHERS ACCUSED OF ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, FROM THEIR PARENTS, AND WITHOUT COURT APPROVAL TAKEN THE CHILDREN FROM THE PARENTS WITHOUT COURT ORDER, AND PUT THE CHILDREN INTO CAGES WITH OTHER SEIZED CHILDREN WITH OUT ANY MEANS OF THE PARENT RECOVERING THEIR CHILD.

NEITHER PARENT NOR CHILD HAD ANY DEFENSE! IN AMERICA THE VILEST CRIMINALS ARE PROVIDED A DEFENSE. IF THEY HAVE NO ACCESS TO A LAWYER! BUT NOT IMMIGRANT PARENTS OF CAGED CHILDREN!

AMERICA’S PRESIDENT TRUMP BY DEFINITION IS QUALIFIED AS A SADISTIC FASCIST PRESIDENT.

HOW DO YOU IDENTIFY PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP BY DEFINITION; LET ME COUNT THE WAYS!

Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic, often militaristic government.”

Webster Dictionary definition of chauvinist: “Excessive or blind patriotism”.

Webster Dictionary definition of sadism: “A sexual perversion in which gratification is obtained by inflicting physical or mental pain on others.”

The fascist shoe fits the sitting President of the United States; If the Donald Trump’s shoe fits the definition of sadistic fascist and racist, he has to wear it, knowing 3 more million American voters voted for his opponent, than voted for him!

Many more Americans oppose President Trump than approve of him!

We Americans, have to accept the fact that these are dark days for the democratic United States of America!

AMERICAN DEMOCRACY HAS BEEN DESTROYED BY TRUMPS, CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY!

THE CURRENT CRIME OF TAKING CHILDREN AND BABIES FROM IMMIGRANTS WITHOUT A COURT HEARING IS A TREACHEROUS CRIME AND EVEN WORST, “A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY”, A VIOLATION OF INTERNATIONAL LAW.

A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY SHOULD SURELY BE AN IMPEACHABLE OFFENSE! AMERICAN DEMOCRACY IS THREATENED!

A SHORT COURSE IN AMERICAN DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN CAPITALISM, NATIONAL SOCIALISM, CREEPING FASCISM, AND AN AMERICAN POPULATION MADE IGNORANT BY A MONOPOLY OF THE “FREE” PRESS AMONG OTHER THINGS!

May 23rd, 2018

This is a very heavy title to try to satisfy! The problem is that Americans are not really naturally stupid nor fascist; Americans are ignorant, but not naturally, they are made ignorant because they have little access to a knowledge of fact and history which we will explore.

This is all extremely important for the welfare of American democracy.

This American democracy was “created” by a very few learned men, in an atmosphere of a nation without a past, and without a true pattern of governing for those particular times in 1787.

American founders, did not have an example to follow; Switzerland, was the only “democracy” at the time, Switzerland democracy was little known, but the founders did consider Switzerland as an innovating form of democratic government.

Our founders were of the very few in America that were relatively self-educated and well read.

The American Constitution and its founders is an excellent time and place to begin to resolve our American governmental and economic problems of today; the Constitutional Convention culminated in 1787, must be viewed in the perspective of the 1787 Times, in order to resolve our American democratic problems of today.

The founders wisely provided for change in our Constitution based on time, size, population, and modern technology; unfortunately, Americans are not as wise and learned as our Constitutional forefathers. Time, the economy, size, and technology has instead taken its toll on democracy and the American People today.

To be a small “d” democrat and defender of democracy has become somewhat difficult today!

It would appear that America today is more inclined to “follow the dollar” than “follow the U.S. Constitution”! And, American Wealthy Capitalist tend to have much more power than insightful “democratic Socialists”!

First of all, let me try to explain what every “nation” is, and more importantly, why any people required a “nation”, such as the United States of America. For that, let us look at the “Preface” of the U.S. Constitution, which is one of the easiest part of the Constitution too understand:
Preamble to the U.S. Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution of the United States of America.”

This is the part of the Constitution that spells out the purpose of any nation, the purpose of the United States of America, and why America was destined to be a “social democracy”. The key is, “Promote the general welfare” in the preface to the American Constitution and the provision in the U.S. Constitution for the U.S. Postal Service and Postal Roads!

To understand any government, if is essential to know “the only basis” for the existence of “any” government: “The only purpose of any government is to provide for the People “collectively”, all those things that that the People cannot provide for their self as individuals.” American politicians today can’t get that through their hard heads!

So, that means that all governments are socialistic to a degree, and America is a democratic socialist nation. “Necessities of the people that they cannot provide for their self, as individuals must be provided for by the government”, for example: the U.S. Army, the U.S. Navy, the FBI, the U.S. Postal Service, Highways, and today Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and Universal Medical Care, on a Federal basis.

It is obvious that advances in technology in medical care, have caused medical care to be too expensive for most Americans to provide for their self, and consequently it became a national issue just like the Army, the Post Office, and Federal highways. Universal Medical Insurance in America is simply adequate government medial insurance for the entire population. Medical care is just as important as an army for war.

Basically, democratic socialism should not even be a “political” issue in a democracy; and it isn’t for every Western Civilization, except America. (Someone needs to convince the politicians, however. Health care is simply a democratic institution for the benefit of the entire population.)

On local issues, democratic socialism is a necessity to provide police and fire protection, state and local governments. Public schools, State Highways, etc.

As the Constitutional fore fathers said, America needs our nation and government for providing democratic socialism, as “in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure the domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the General Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”

And the U.S. Postal service (and postal roads) are provided for in the U.S. Constitution of 1787.

A Political Science definition of a democracy is; “A form of government in which, (1) all citizens vote, (2) a majority rules, and (3) liberty exists; and liberty is defined as freedom, “limited: to the extent that the freedom of one citizen does not infringe upon the rights of other citizens.

It is liberty (U.S. Bill of Rights) that protects the minority from the tyranny of the majority; this is extremely important to always remember. Freedom has limits! And, in a democracy, the supreme power is held by the People.”

A Webster Dictionary definition of democracy is: “A government in which the supreme power is held by the People.”

As for economic freedom in America, both democratic socialism AND capitalism is provided for the People; capitalism, is provided for in the U.S. Constitution’s Fourth and Fifth Amendments.

The U.S. Constitution’s Fourth Amendment states; “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue but on probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the person or things to be seized.”

And, Amendment V: “No Person shall . . . be deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law, nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.”

The protection of personal property is of course, essential to capitalism.

However, Americans also need to know of the history of the establishment of a Middle class from “Medieval Society” of only “Lords and peasants”, and before the “Industrial Age”. This economic history is obviously recognized in our American Constitution.

The “Middle Class” rose up from the establishment of Trade Unions, or Gilds as they were originally called. In Medieval society, here arose guilds for bakers, blacksmiths, wine makers, etc. As such, the Middle Class became distinguished from both, Lord and/or Peasants.

With the establishment of the Middle Class, also came the settlement of occasional and ongoing disputes between Labor and Management, or Labor and Corporate America disputes that divides Americans and voters today.

So it is essential that Americans, in their youth, are taught and know the history of labor and management to understand politics and economics today; and, as youth we know where each of us falls into the economic class of today.

Today, America has an extreme problem for Americans, and basically the voters, keeping informed about being “uninformed”.

As previously stated, Americans are not stupid, however they continue to be basically uninformed and misinformed about American history and economy as it affects them today.

And, there is an aspect of the economy that all American People should be aware of. The basic difference between socialism and capitalism is that a “socialist economy” is based on the total “cooperation” of the People; and, the basic concept of capitalism is that capitalism is based entirely on “competition” between the People.

This may sound good or bad to you as an individual; however, capitalism and socialism has certain advantages, both have good and bad attributes; however, as in the case of a democratic America, both capitalism and socialism, MUST BE CONTROLLED TO A DEGREE!

Both capitalism and socialism in the United States of America, needs to be controlled by those Americans who recognize the benefits of both. But unfortunately, America becomes the victim of those elements of society whose resources are committed to either OR.

Because capitalism is based upon competition among citizens, it becomes possible for competitors to try to attempt to gain a monopoly and drive their opponents out of business and establish a monopoly; and, without competition they can command any price they want, and that is not the intended “acceptable” purpose of corporations.

One of America’s great opponents of American corporate monopolies was President Teddy Roosevelt, known as the “TRUST BUSTER”; Teddy Roosevelt controlled corporations to protect American business AND consumers (all Americans), among other things.

Teddy Roosevelt said, about corporations: “Our aim is not to do away with corporations; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern industrialism. … We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.”

And, “Probably the greatest harm done by vast wealth is the harm that we of moderate means do ourselves when we let the vices of envy and hatred enter deep into our own natures.

“But there is another harm; and it is evident that we should try to do away with that. The great corporations which we have grown to speak of rather loosely as trusts are the creatures of the State, and the State not only has the right to control them, but it is duty bound to control them wherever the need of such control is shown.” Speech at Kennedy Plaza, Providence, Rhode Island (23 August 1902).

Observe that President Roosevelt makes an extremely important point; Corporations only exist because they are created by the “state”, the American Government OF THE PEOPLE; and, the “government of the People”, are “duty bound to control them”!

However, in more recent years President Reagan and President Trump have tried to eliminate “all” controls of corporations, saying it was good for business and the economy (neglecting the People); eliminating control allows business to establish monopolies which raises costs of products which is good for business, bad for consumers and the American People; and, elimination of control of corporations leads to the Spector of “Inflation”, which is devastating, especially to older Americans and the poor.

Most important to remember is this, corporations exist only because they have a charter granted to them, by the government “of the People”; as such, the People have be protected from monopolies of corporations, by the law of the People!

In conclusion, how are Americans supposed to become informed?

Our Constitutional forefathers had concerns about having an “informed electorate”; hence it was, that a patriot sent a message to the writers of our Constitution, and had them add a phrase to the First Amendment, “and to the press”; thus the First Amendment reads, “Congress shall make no laws respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech; OR OF THE PRESS; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

In 1787 the only source of news for the People was newspapers. Every village had their own newspaper, usually owned by one man, produced by the same man, and then sold on the streets by the same man. Freedom of the Press probably worked in 1787.

However, today, 6 corporate conglomerates own 90% of all prime time news media, TV and Newspapers; the same six news corporate conglomerates that own ninety percent of all prime time news media make all their profits from advertising from “corporations”. None of their profits come from the people who depend upon them for their news. Consequently, the news media has become a simple propaganda device for corporate America. America get only news corporate American want them to know!

Americans are being “educated” by corporate America controlled propaganda, in newspaper and television! Americans get only news that Corporate American wants the People to know. This is a huge problem.

Constitutional Freedom of Speech or the press does not need to be eliminated; however the corporate news media have been “chartered” by the government of the People.

The news media can and should be prohibited from monopolizing the media and controlling the news. Americans should be advised and educated by other than a corporate propaganda machine; and, the People should demand true and unbiased news reporting.

American government by the People, because it is of the People, can limit ownership of media; they can control media and make media serve the People’s needs, by making them dependent upon income from the very customers of the media, instead of corporate advertising; if media is going to profit from competitive capitalistic income, it should be competitive.

In 2010, the U.S. Supreme Court in the “Citizens United” decision, that eliminated our People’s government law, limiting the amount of contributions that wealthy and corporate contributions can make to candidates in democratic elections, was declared unconstitutional. Since 2010, the wealthy Americans and corporations have since been allowed to “buy” political candidates and elections, and the wealthy have bought candidates and elections.

“Citizens United” destroyed democratic elections in America. In protest, many voters just refused to vote and stayed home on Election Day; this kind of protest, makes matter worse.

In the 2014 Congressional elections, only half of all voters in America voted. One fourth of the voters elected the candidates with the most contributions from the wealthy and corporations.

The Supreme Court’s “Citizen United” decision, has been a disaster for our democratic America; and now, fascism has raised its ugly self in America.

The Webster Dictionary definition of fascism is: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic, often militaristic government.”

Fascist American Nazis, the Ku Klux Klan and White Supremacists are demonstrating on American streets and influencing and buying American candidates and elections.

The fascist John Birch Society flourishes and is active in front groups and elections.

And The John Birch Society opposes American democracy; Birch Society Blue Book, p.124 ” . . . democracy is merely a deceptive phrase, a weapon of demagoguery, and a perennial fraud.” (Continued in Footnote 25, p. 136.) “Our founding fathers . . .visibly spurned a democracy as probably the worst of all forms of government.” This is, of course, a brazen lie!

Communist in America was made illegal in America in 1953, however fascists like the American Nazi Party, the Ku Klux Klan and the John Birch Society are flourishing in America today. “Communist Control Act of 1954”: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Communist_Control_Act_of_1954

In other democracies, fascists and fascist organizations are illegal and criminal; but not in America!

Our American democracy and Constitution was never meant to provide for freedom for Fascist, or Communists, or Nazis.

What Americans need today is Americans and American voters who believe in American democracy!

If you believe in American democracy, please pass this on. What I have written is fact; you can easily check it out and please do I encourage you.

Personally, I am a retired teacher, and as such, I believe all citizens should be adequately informed. All Americans are truly not adequately informed today, and I worry about America, and this is my effort to do something about it and save my beloved American democratic Republic.

Sorry, but I no longer have faith in either American political parties; I believe we need people in government who believe in America, not in political parties, not in political party contributions and are committed to democracy.

GINA HASPEL, GUILTY OF CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY, TO BE PRESIDENT TRUMP’S HEAD OF CIA!

May 16th, 2018

Gina Haspel was a member of the President W. Bush’s Administration involved in the torture of prisoners of war which is illegal by the International Law. International Law is technically also law in America by act of Congress approval of International Law by treaty (U.S. Constitution).

After President Bush left office, he was invited to Switzerland to give a speech. If he went to Switzerland, W. Bush was threatened to be served with a subpoena to world court for crimes against humanity, because of his use of torture on prisoners of war during the wars against Afghanistan and Iraq. W. Bush did not go to Switzerland nor has he traveled outside of America, since.

“George Bush calls off trip to Switzerland”: https://www.theguardian.com/law/2011/feb/06/george-bush-trip-to-switzerland

Now President Trump wants to appoint Haspel as head of the CIA; President Trump has publicly stated that he approves of torture and would use it as President of the United States. The U.S. Senate is now ready to approve of Gina Haspel to director of CIA. It would appear that Gina Haspel has already, while in the W. Bush Administration, been guilty of torturing prisoners of war and crimes against humanity under International Law!

Now the question is, if either Gina Haspel or President Trump decide to travel overseas on business, do they risk getting a subpoena for crimes against humanity by the World Court, for torturing prisoners of war?

Personally, it grieves me that members of my American Government past or present are guilty of “crimes against humanity”. How can Americans stand to look at our allies in the face, after the nightmare of America committing “Crimes against Humanity?”

Where did all the flowers go!

THE IRAN TREATY, PRESIDENT TRUMP, IRAN, HISTORY, AND WORLD PEACE!

May 9th, 2018

If President Donald Trump wanted Peace with Iran, he could instead of breaking the Iran Treaty and threatening war with Iran, perhaps instead apologize for President Eisenhower’s and President Reagan’s outrageous attacks on Iran and the People of Iran in the past.

Many Iranians still hate America because in 1953 under president Eisenhower, American CIA in a an coup d’état overthrew the elected government of Iraq and replaced it with the dictator, the Shah of Iran, in order for the United States to gain control of Iranian oil.

PRESIDENT EISENHOWER


SHAH OF IRAN

Another issue that has led the people of Iran to hate America, is America siding with Iraq, when Iraq invaded Iran in the Iraq and Iran war; the Unites States of America under President Ronald Reagan, supplied Iraq with provisions for Iraq to obtain and use poison gas against Iran in Iraq’s war against Iran (1980-1988).

“American Firms’ Supplying Iraq’s Chemical Weapons Production” https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2014/10/14/world/middleeast/american-firms-supplying-iraqs-chemical-weapons-production.html


PRESIDENT REAGAN

Iranians have not forgotten, but they would prefer live peaceably in the world with America for the benefit of world peace and that is why Iran agreed to the treaty with Germany, France, Russia, China, the United Nations, and the United States, despite Iran’s mistrust of the United States.

President Trump does not just alienate Iran by breaking the treaty, President Trump also alienates other parties to the Iran Treaty: German, France, China, Russia, and the United Nations, all others who have an interest in the treaty.

Personally as an American, I fear President Trump more than I do Iran; and, I prefer world peace over war from President Trump against Iran, North Korea, or “Muslims”! (I have friends and relatives who are Muslim and whom I love very much and they love me.)

Further at this time and place, I find myself considering America’s President Trump to be exceedingly undemocratic and fascist, by definition! Webster Dictionary definition of fascism: “A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race and stands for a centralized autocratic often militaristic government.”

Webster Dictionary definition of autocratic: “Relating to or characteristic of one who rules with unlimited power.”

Webster Dictionary definition of racism: “Belief that some races are by nature superior to others; also discrimination based on such belief.”

Webster Dictionary definition of chauvinist: “Excessive or blind patriotism”.

Webster Dictionary definition of sadism: “A sexual perversion in which gratification is obtained by inflicting physical or mental pain on others.”

Personally, I am a patriotic American, a historian, and was drafted and honorably served in the U.S. Military, and that is my perspective! I have nothing against Iran nor the treaty with Iran!

However, I also have not approved of any wars by American Presidents from the Vietnam War of Democratic Party President Johnston to the most recent wars against Afghanistan and Iraq by Republican Presidents George Bush Sr. and his son, President W. Bush Jr. Further, I highly respect those honorable men and women who served in those wars.

None of those wars were against nations that posed Any THREAT TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and/or the People.

Further, the nation of Afghanistan had NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SAUDI ARABIAN TERRORIST, BIN LADEN, WHOSE REASON FOR HIS HEINOUS TERRORIST ATTACK ON AMERICA, WAS PRESIDENT GEORGE H. W. TRUMP’S DEFILING OF THE MUSLIM HOLY LAND BY PUTTING AN AMERICAN MILITARY BASE THERE IN SAUDI ARABIA DURING HIS “DESERT STORM WAR”!
