The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Afghanistan Taliban Problem

Interesting to note that there have been problems in deciphering plots in the Middle East, including Afghanistan. Why? is there a possibility that, with the objection to the Vietnam Conflict and the investigations of the CIA, we could have weakened the Central Intelligence Agency? In 1865, we had the ability to uncover a threat to New ork City (see a New York Times article from 1865) for burning down several buildings in the city before it happened. The perpetrators were from Dixie. They had just lost the war with the Yankees. Uncovering the plot sent the perpetrators reeling up the Hudson River to Canada. Why did we have the ability to uncover such a plot, but were lacking the ability to uncover the plots of the Taliban in Afghanistan today?
Further questions. Why were those working for the government in Afghanistan not paid enough so they deserted? Why did the USA support a corrupt government like the one in Kabul and expect to destroy the Taliban? Why has it been such quick maneuvering by the Taliban and there were not enough to stand up for the government in the process? What happened and why did America not have enough knowledge about this? Why are there so many analysts in the news who act surprised that this happened in Afghanistan and only a few, like me, who were not surprised in the least?

But I am stupid and nothing but a moaner and groaner who tries to seek something better for America. My writing in America gets censored, I never get published for my good ideas, and I feel as if people wish to mock me and scoff at what I say as not being important in the least. I don’t worry about things. I speak out bluntly and with purpose.
What did Trump accomplish in Afghanistan, besides making an agreement to withdraw our troops? Where is the CIA these days and why don’t we have the intelligence to find out what is truly happening? These stupid nutcase people who claim to be Christians in this nation are just like the Taliban, as they preach about not wearing masks or being vaccinated so people in America can die. Oh, silly me for asking this question.

The problems are that so many people don’t know how to love at all (CGA, 1970).” A Puritan is someone in fear that someone, somewhere, is having a good time. “Liberty and justice for all [not priorities on individual and selfish rights].” “Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  “We the people, in order to form a more perfect union [and overall wealth of American society]…” 
Benjamin Franklin: “Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are affected.” Stacey Abrams: “Compromise about actions, but not about values.”  Oscar Wilde: “I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.”  Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” Benjamin Franklin: “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.”  Whoopi Goldberg: “To handle this COVID-19 pandemic effectively, we all need to get on the same page.”  Note: To be clear, I do not like being patronized. I do not express my disdain over what happens to my fellow humans just for my own sake and to pursue favors and handouts. I do it in order to gain R – E – S – P – E – C – T for me and for millions of other Americans of any race, ethnicity, religious belief, or sex and sexual identity who try to walk in integrity as they attempt to achieve, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  PERIOD.  One nation under God [our Creator] with liberty and justice for all.
