I Told You So!

July 9, 2019

Yes, I told you so. God, those are
such delicious words!

As I predicted, egomaniac billionaire TOM STEYER is – shock! – running for president. This just came in from Reuters:

Screen Shot 2019-07-09 at 3.27.27 PMHere’s what I posted back in January of 2018, following a newspaper article which I published in December of 2017:

“It turns out we were… right back in January when we said that all you people across the nation who signed the phony IMPEACH TRUMP petition promulgated by billionaire Tom Steyer got played for saps. Not only did Steyer drop the whole thing after millions of people signed on, gleefully giving him their name and address, but now it turns out that – as we said at the time – this was all a ruse to get a voter list to hit up for donations in an upcoming presidential run.
“Early this month news leaked about an ANONYMOUS AD for campaign aides that ran on the website LinkedIn. Those ads got traced right smack back to good old Tom Steyer – who needed that gaggle of petition-signing suckers in order to launch his 2020 run for the White House.
“All you who signed his petition, watch your in-box over the coming months. And see what you brought down on us by following someone who traded on your Trump Derangement fears. Steyer was someone you never even heard of, but you supported him because he played on your jejune liberal fantasies of impeachment. You fell for Steyer’s bullshit because you stupidly believed that anyone claiming to be the enemy of your enemy is your friend. It’s a game that works every time. So the next time some billionaire pops up from nowhere and acts all “resistance-y” about people you dislike, try paying a little more attention to the motivation. We see now the hazards of a politically untested billionaire running a campaign based on playing your emotions. The proof of that sits in the White House right now. So for the 2020 election try this for a change: THINK.”

CLICK HERE for the original December 2017 article warning people that Steyer’s impeachment petition was nothing but a way to compile a sucker list so he can run for president…

Billionaires are INSANE. This is all we need to know about billionaires: These are people who once had $800,000,000… and it was not enough! They needed MORE! That’s as good a working definition of a crazy person as we can get.Billionaires

If You Vote… You Can’t Complain

April 5, 2019

A look at our current political free-for-all, from over 20 years ago…

Something to chew on during the never-ending presidential campaign, a campaign designed to wear you down. I, for one, will not pay attention to the parade of self-deluded candidates till the Summer of 2020. If at all…

The last of our 19-month fear-filled election cycles left millions of people addicted to fear. When it ended they couldn’t let go. They still argue about who “really won.” Millions of adults actually CRIED and sought therapy when their preferred candidate lost. And now they are at it again.

Nothing good comes from these exercises in masochism. Unless, of course, you sell “news”:

“It may not be good for America, but it’s damn good for CBS,” Les Moonves, late of CBS said about the 2016 race. He called the presidential campaign a “circus” full of “bomb throwing,” and said he hoped it continues. “Most of the ads are not about issues. They’re sort of like the debates. Man, who would’ve expected the ride we’re all having right now? … The money’s rolling in and this is fun. I’ve never seen anything like this, and this going to be a very good year for us. Sorry. It’s a terrible thing to say. But, bring it on, Donald. Keep going,” said Moonves.

The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in… The money’s rolling in…

This is why media whips up election fever so damn early. To sucker YOU into paying attention.

Yes, I know: It’s the most important election ever. The future of the planet depends on this election. And… THE CHILLLLLLDREN… Blah blah blah.

Pure marketing flummery.

You want to drive yourself nuts? Gai gezunterhait.

As I said above, I will not give these candidates any of my time till the middle of 2020, at the earliest. Most won’t last that long so why bother? I have better things to do.

END THE FEAR

Elections are all about FEAR. They are all about SCARING THE HELL OUT OF YOU.
People in FEAR don’t think straight. That’s why all the politicians will work you over with one phony crisis after another. A book written 100 years ago still applies. I wrote a new introduction to this volume that shows just how right this book is. FEAR is the great controller – and in America, since Harry Truman’s Cold War, we’ve been spoon fed one horror story after another. People raised in the Cold War times STILL SOIL THIER PANTS OVER RUSSIA. It’s too pathetic to be funny.

Malcolm and the “Liberal”

March 8, 2019

New York Radio Station WMCA, March 10, 1960.
The Barry Gray Show.

——–

   A fascinating 41 minute radio discussion from the start of the 1960s – almost 60 years to the day from today, as I post this. In this interview, Malcolm X shows himself to be a composed, persuasive, and persistent educator – not the wild-eyed violent terrorist that corporate media so desperately tried to make him out to be.

Radio Personality Barry Gray – Who Invented The Call-In “Talk” Radio Format

   Listen as Malcolm engages a white liberal who, for some reason, saw him as a threat. Worth noting that by the time interviewer Barry Gray died, in 1989, he was deemed a conservative. The discerning listener will no doubt hear the roots of that “conversion” in his rebuttals to Malcolm X.

   This interview provides a perfect example of what happens when an intelligent, well-informed person stands up to the typical liberal. In the face of cogent, lucid, and reasoned argument that shatters their façade, liberals invariably become zealous, hard-core conservatives. This is why I never trust self-described liberals. They will gut you every time if you don’t fall in line. These, of course, are the same people who crow endlessly about DIVERSITY and UNITY. Always remember what UNITY really means:

Has Anyone Ever Said: “I believe so strongly in unity that… I will do it YOUR way”? Ha!

   Barry Gray had once been known as a staunch foe of the very same right-wing McCarthyism that has, today, become a virtual religion for liberals who descend to shouting “TREASON” at everyone who disagrees with them. Revealingly, in this interview, Mr. Gray throws an unsubstantiated treason allegation at The Honorable Elijah Muhammad – based upon nothing more than a smear piece in a newspaper.

   File this under: Plus ça change… 

================================

Phil Ochs warned us long ago:

“Liberals are 10º to the left of center in good times but 10º to the right of center when it affects them personally.”

Great Freudian Slips In History…

July 3, 2018

I have searched and searched for this for many years. It seems to have gotten scrubbed from history. 
In June of 1968 all hell broke lose in Chicago at the Democratic National Convention. When facing reporters, the mayor at the time, Richard Daley, tossed it off with one of the most revealing Freudian Slips of all time.

Bill Clinton Elbows His Way Back Into The News

June 6, 2018

Old Bill Clinton has once again forced his way into the news, peddling another ghost-written book – a novel this time. Every washed-up politician has a book or two out. Who suspected we had such literary talent galumphing around in our sleazy politico pool? This output of books reminds me of these words from Tolstoy:  “If you asked someone, ‘Can you play the violin?’ and he says, ‘I don’t know, I have not tried, perhaps I can,’ you laugh at him. Whereas about writing, people always say: ‘I don’t know, I have not tried,’ as though one had only to try and one would become a writer.”

This time, in media interviews, the oafishly riggish Clinton fancies himself a champion of abused women – well why not? He created so many of them. Bill’s escapades with reluctant women landed him in court, forcing him to dip into Hillary’s bulging Cattle Futures investment fund so he could pay hundreds of thousands of dollars to his victim Paula Jones. Christopher Hitchens once wrote about how he’d have so loved to have heard that particular conversation between the Clinton Co-Presidents…

Ah, how I miss Hitchens. Although he fell out of favor with liberals (an extremely easy thing to do) he sure wielded a keen pen.

We can find some of the most shatteringly vitriolic words ever to come from the pointed pen of Christopher Hitchens in his writing about Bill Clinton’s fawning, obsequious, toadying, unctuous, arrogant, and flat out false words at the funeral for the execrable Richard Nixon.

Not only did Clinton refer to Nixon’s DREAM OF WORLD PEACE – tell that to the nations he carpet bombed – but Clinton demanded that we no longer criticize Nixon for anything that is merely a part of, and not the totality of, Nixon’s life. Meaning no more critical thinking about the only president so feculent and crooked that he had to resign.
So, talking about Nixon’s hatred of Black people and Jews, or mentioning his use of the IRS to, in his own words, “screw our enemies,” gets squelched because we’d be taking these foul, abhorrent incidents out of the context of Nixon’s whole life. We must, of course, remember that the man had a puppy…

To Clinton, Nixon stands tall as a brave seeker of truth and peace who played the role of a loving grandfather – meaning, presumably, that Nixon didn’t wire tap and slander his grandchildren.

Bill Clinton demands context? Okay. Try this for context: All the horrible things Nixon did in the course of his entire political career, from his Red-Baiting beginnings to his final yearnings to vaporize the people of Vietnam by dropping thermonuclear weapons on them, to his denouncing Peace Activists as “bums,” to his using bag-men to pay off his covert squad of thugs who committed burglaries at his behest, all this outweighs anything good Nixon may have done.
If you can stomach 6 minutes of verbal ipecac worthy of Uriah Heep, watch and listen as Bill Clinton mythologizes a severely mentally ill man who put the whole world at risk, a man who saw the presidency as a weapon with which to destroy all the people who had ever dared to cross him, a man who lived life in a toxic bubble of sycophants, paranoia, and rage in which the rule of law meant nothing but a minor inconvenience… and contorts him into a peace-loving adorable ol’ grampa – and then arrogantly claims to say all this on behalf of the whole nation. meaning you and me.
And as usual, Bill Clinton manages to find time to focus on himself…
Yuck.

Wow…

You’re Being Ridiculous

December 13, 2017

This notorious and insulting imprecation – spoken by “comedian” Sarah Silverman – essentially telling people at a convention to shut-up – gives us a perfect example of the kind of trouble people get into when they use the verb TO BE.
For those who don’t recall the moment when a pissed-off comic treated half the democratic party as hecklers, take a look:

“YOU’RE BEING RIDICULOUS,” she said to the very people she and the other Hillary supporters needed to win over.
She used the verb TO BE two times in her insulting, condescending, scolding tirade. 50% of her words.
And it infuriated the progressive wing of the party – which then launched DEMEXIT and helped drive the democrats to the brink of bankruptcy. It has brought the democrats so low, that today they celebrate a victory of 1.5% over a raving religious fanatic and all ’round nincompoop. Any port in a storm, I guess.

What Silverman did came as no surprise to me. The Withers (“I’m With ➔HER”) treat all who differ from them with unveiled smugness and contempt. To this day, they blame the Sanders voters for She Who Must Be Elected losing to a TV gameshow host. But they never wanted them anyway:
So why blame them now as Hillary and her myrmidons consistently do? They do it out of sheer pique and an inability to take responsibility.

But back to the irate and heavily medicated Sarah Silverman and YOU ARE BEING RIDICULOUS!
Her words amount to a condescending GOD-LIKE pronouncement of stern judgment. It did not have to happen like this.
Suppose Silverman had used the more clear form of English known as E-PRIME – in which the verb TO BE never gets used. This makes for more personal and responsible communication.
Some examples from THIS LINK

Consider the following paired sets of propositions, in which Standard English alternates with English-Prime (E-Prime):
lA. The electron is a wave.
lB. The electron appears as a wave when measured with instrument-l.
2A. The electron is a particle.
2B. The electron appears as a particle when measured with instrument-2.
3A. John is lethargic and unhappy.
3B. John appears lethargic and unhappy in the office.
4A. John is bright and cheerful.
4B. John appears bright and cheerful on holiday at the beach.
5A. This is the knife the first man used to stab the second man.
5B. The first man appeared to stab the second man with what looked like a knife to me.
6A. The car involved in the hit-and-run accident was a blue Ford.
6B. In memory, I think I recall the car involved in the hit-and-run accident as a blue Ford.
7A. This is a fascist idea.
7B. This seems like a fascist idea to me.
8A. Beethoven is better than Mozart.
8B. In my present mixed state of musical education and ignorance, Beethoven seems better to me than Mozart.
9A. That is a sexist movie.
9B. That seems like a sexist movie to me.
10A. The fetus is a person.
10B. In my system of metaphysics, I classify the fetus as a person.

Get the picture? E-Prime makes us take personal responsibility for the expression of our thoughts. I have written several entire books without ever using the verb TO BE.
Consider: Would the outrage at Silverman’s scolding, reckless, and divisive words perhaps have rolled off the backs of half the party had she said something like:
“It seems to me that you have taken a ridiculous position.”
or
“You strike me as ridiculous.”
or
“I think of your support for Sanders as ridiculous.”
These comments sans the verb TO BE may stir up controversy, but they no longer hit people as an insult; as fighting words. Had she eschewed the verb TO BE, Silverman then expresses – and takes personal responsibility for – her opinion. She no longer speaks as The High and Mighty Arbiter of Thought.
Meaning with E-Prime, Silverman could have started A CONVERSATION by stating how SHE feels. And then others can respond later. Her belligerent pronouncement “You’re Being Ridiculous” stops conversation dead in its tracks.
She spoke in the role of an exasperated parent giving an unruly child a rap on the knuckles. How the hell did she think people would react to that?  
And here we arrive at the key to the whole problem: Clearly, Silverman DID NOT THINK. She shot from the hip.

The most often expressed problem people have with using E-Prime boils down to this: it takes them too long to formulate their thoughts. Yes, speaking in E-Prime forces the speaker to THINK before talking.
Does anyone consider THINKING BEFORE SPEAKING a bad thing?

Perhaps had Silverman, who gets paid huge sums of money to communicate, understood the basics of communication, she would not have alienated the very people she needed on Election Day. And owing to her rash and clumsy dressing down, democrats could not unite behind their flawed candidate who needed every vote out there.

As to Al Franken, standing there simpering and then making the lame excuse that Silverman spoke as a joke, he may not have ended up in a fight for his political survival had the words not come across as an insult. I find it quite clear that democrats have turned against Franken because of his smiling and making excuses for Silverman at this precise moment. Democrats desperately need the Sanders wing to return to the fold. Ousting Franken amounts to a calculated sacrifice made to placate the people he and Silverman insulted in that moment. But the progressive wing of the party will have none of that. The democrats simply cannot un-ring that bell.
And this didn’t have to happen. It only happened because an inept communicator spoke four hostile and judgmental words – half of them… the completely unnecessary verb TO BE.
=====

 

I did not kid you about my books. I refused to use the verb TO BE in these three books, except when quoting other people (and once as the punchline to a joke). Thoughts crystalize this way. We no longer pronounce – we explain. Nor have I used the verb TO BE in any of its forms in the introductions to some of the other books available. Take a look.
