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.

Commentary about Economist Magazine Article about “Creative Destruction”

Dear Editors:

It is difficult to wrap my arms around one of your writer’s words of “creative destruction.” 

My best understanding is that you are defending the push by Reagan with his supply-side economics and deregulation.  So, therefore, your writer points out that America has been successful in following this process described as “creative destruction.” 

Your writer says America is still the strongest economic power in the world, even China.  Perhaps your writer should read a book by Fareed Zakaria (The Post-American World).  Learning from historical example, Zakaria reviews what happened in Ancient China to cause the implosion of China and fall into poverty, thus removing it from the world scene. 

The similarities are amazing.  Moving to rid the nation of small business, the Mandarin business class, and consolidation at the top, the nation fell apart.  Supply-side Reaganomics and deregulation has done the same thing in America. The deregulation made the merger and acquisitions of small corporations, sometimes local (i.e., local entities for electric, telecommunications, retail sales, etc.), have caused close-to-considering nationalization and supply-side economics in which those corporations no longer care about consumers on the demand-side of a capitalist market. 

The R&D efforts which once funded the smaller corporations (by means of tax credits for R&D) have been replaced by strong dictatorial control which has removed pensions from what might be considered part of the American “Mandarin” class and given the money as bonuses and 1000% increases to those at the top. What is described here permeates many other industries and companies (see Ellen Schultz book, The Retirement Heist).

Furthermore, I have observations and evidence about the impact of centralized corporate conglomerates close to monopoly status.  Some of the observations are personal and involve family business.  Other evidence I have provided in many of my writings about this topic for more than a decade. 

With this being said and considering your publication is out of a nation with a long history of “royalty-based” supply-side economics (feudal ownership which was thrown away by those in the northeast of America (see A Free Soil — A Free People: he Anti-Rent War in Delaware County, New York – referencing the anti-rent, anti-feudal wars in upstate New York in the 1840s), perhaps the ideas of your writer are thrust forward so as to validate America’s move, by way of Reagan, to deregulation and the ultimate slippery slope of supply-side economics?  The justification is more for the “feudal” land policies in Dixie, called plantations, where the owners were too much like a Charles Dickens character, Ebeneezer Scrooge – cheap, cheap, cheap, and unwilling to balance supply and demand, whether it be economics OR labor. 

What people do not realize is that when Reagan pushed for deregulation, many people said, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.”  Our small corporation was not broke.  In fact it was a cash cow, due to the hard work of the people who labored to make it better.  How nice to honor us with a severance package which did not last long, but the axe men at the top walked away, skimming money (is that not stealing?  Perhaps?) in the millions of dollars, so as to “deregulate” and move to M&A for the sake of monopoly. 

We were against the deregulation so we were against change.  The definition of conservative: “averse to change.” That would have made us conservative, not liberal.  Liberal defined: “open to new ideas.”  Deregulation was a “new idea.”  No wonder people are so confused.  Liberal: “…a political and social philosophythat promotes…democracy, and free enterprise.” Ultimately, democracy with the words free enterprise demonstrates an oxymoron.  Free enterprise left unregulated destroys democracy, as we see happening today. Perhaps Reagan was the liberal but called himself conservative?  All of his charismatic talk pushed this world into chaos beyond just the political spectrum. 

A reviewer of the Zakaria book says,

America stands at a crossroads: In a new global era where the United States no longer dominates the worldwide economy, orchestrates geopolitics, or overwhelms cultures, can the nation continue to thrive?

According to your writer, America is still doing better than China. But the question remains as to how well it will stand up when it is face-to-face, with a supply-side economics, with communist supply-side economics of China?  Is there not a better possibility America could stand up to China if we were to use “creative destruction” (i.e., like the 1840s anti-rent rebellions) to return us to deregulation and bring back capitalism as it should be – supply AND demand?  For America, history has proven this to be true. 


Healthcare Costs in America & the Developed World

β€œThe U. S. health care sector is massive. In 2020, it amounted to 19.7 percent of GDP. In the previous (pre-pandemic) year, that number was 17.6 percent. The United States spends more on health care than any other developed country, and not by a small amount: $12,318 per capita in 2021. In the rest of the developed world the average is under $6,000. What do we get for all this money? Lower life expectancy and higher infant mortality than almost all other developed nations. Despite the huge deployment of resources, the system is, by almost every metric, a dismal failure.”

β€œEasy Chair” [The Social Body] Hari Kunzru. Harper’s. March 2023


What is the capitalist return on investment (ROI)? Can it be determined from these numbers? How does that ROI compare to ROI in other developed nations? We don’t have those figures. I suppose they could be found.

How do these numbers compare before the privatization efforts of hospitals, begun by lousy perverted Reagan and carried out by lousy perverted Rick Scott who now sits in the US Senate with a conflict of interest regarding healthcare because he has HCA where he makes a profit?

How do these numbers compare to the days pre-big pharma and Bush / Republican era of creation of the donut hole in Medicare which gives free reign and no regulation of big pharma?

How do these numbers compare to pre-big insurance underwriting established by Watergate burglar Haldeman, under Tricky Dick?

Historically, how do these numbers compare?

Everything I mention here has nothing to do with socialism, but with capitalism. That is the reason I mention it because those who shoot holes in universal healthcare always bring up the emotional issue of socialism. Another example of Machiavellian perverts (ends justifies the means, so they don’t give a damn about the truth or ethics) who grab control and power with their love of money over human beings.

Federal Deficit

Morning newspaper story. President Biden attempting to work with McCarthy & Repubs on debt ceiling today!

Anybody understand history & what Fed budget is abt? If not, then I advise Americans to learn.

1. The House has say over budget and works it out with President. Why did stupid jerks use a nonsense hatred over Pelosi to put these Goddamn stupid Repubs in charge? Evidently un-intelligent stupid ones putting hatred of individual over process. Congress now seated based on voters with lowest level of intelligence with slander and lies against other human beings (i.e., Molinaro of 19) rather than discuss this isssue of budgeting, with intelligence and reasoning abt issue, not lies abt people. Scumbag liars who we need their heads on a platter.

2. Under Trump, the deficit rose. Since Biden, deficit has improved. Now bastard Repubs blame Dems.  Biden is to blame? You Goddamn bastards who say this.

3. When Reagan was in power, we suffered recession and inflation. Yet, the bastards remains popular and the basis for opposition to Biden. Grow up you snooty snotty little immature brats.

4. Reagan complained because House under Tip O’Neil had such control over budget. In California had line-item veto. Reagan moaned and groaned he did not have this at Federal level. First representation of freaking Repub desire for dictatorship. In other words, get rid of expenditures Repubs don’t like. To he’ll with what Dems who better represent people, not piggish corporate conglomerates (supply side) of Repub selfishness want.

Get a life. Get rid of nasty Repub leadership, before it is too late.

Guns & Vehicles

In the last 2 years or so, in this tiny rural community, I now count 4 people who died as pedestrians along state road. Please correct me if wrong, but recall only 2 from this area who died in Vietnam. Not trying to say one is worse than the other. Just the facts, ma’am.

Vietnam is over, but other wars run by military-industrial complex are still going. After getting rid of Federal War Dept., we evolved to military-industrial complex. In spite of warnings from former Gen & Republican president, the costs for this have mushroomed over time. 

This exponential growth in expenditures for the military-industrial complex has been driven by hawkish paranoid ones with money-loving ideas and bent on the stupidity of Ayn Rand (virtue of selfishness) and Machiavelli (end justifies means). Stupid lunkheads with money and power. How many American lives have been lost, due to such lunkheads?

Guns. With the lunkheads of money-loving NRA dolts, these hawkish perverted paranoid control freaks stipulate how society should operate with guns, while society suffers, and not only by guns, but a reduction in tourist dollars because those from many other nations want to come to see America the Beautiful that is being converted to America the Gun-toting Bastards.

Back to my original statement. Four pedestrians killed on local roads, due to vehicle use. We have also thrust away, compared to Europe, the use of trainses and use individual vehicles. The rise of individualism, due to theer bitch named Ayn Rand, and others.  

Rick the Prick Scott was told by the people’s referendum to build a train system. He refused to listen to the people, proclaiming there is no money. Suddenly, he finds money to expand I-95 from 6 to 10 lanes, in the name of individualism. He did so with no concern for polluting atmosphere. Then what? Adds tolls to I-95 in some areas. 

He and others claimed no money to house homeless, but then found tons money – suddenly appears – to build stadiums go baseball players who often move into millions of dollars and could invest in such stadiums. Price of housing goes exponential, putting many on streets. This due to movement to slum Lord ownership of homes, due to values going up more than 150% in just a few years, under Bush.

All of this to explain. Individual vehicles can be just as dangerous as individual ownership of guns. We register vehicles. What is wrong with registering guns?

And for vehicles, public education has eliminated student driving classes which taught safety. Reminder. Three pedestrians just died, hit by 18-year-old driver. Was driver drunk? We don’t know. What safety violations were involved? We don’t know. But stupid Americans ban alcohol while reducing public safety education.

Now. Where is public school safety education regarding guns, as people register to earn license to carry one? Get a license for a vehicle which kills, but no license and training for guns? 

Where is safety training for alcohol, cannabis, video game addiction, sex addiction, gambling addiction? We can be a freaking lousy lazy society and ban and censor, not TEACH, TEACH, TEACH!

The results of what is NOT being done is to create a hell on earth we don”t need. Save the hell for God to put individualistic, greedy, selfish lovers of money into an eventual hell. If one believes God will… or not?

Stop fighting control of guns with desperate false crap regarding amendments in US Constitution

 Use some common sense and logic, before we all get killed… by other humans who are barbaric and lack a framework and paradigm for being civilized to one another and in the name of peace, human justice, human equality, and happiness. Love one another and dispose of hate.

Fundies, FB Communication, & True Spirituality

Have received a comment from a FB person. Not from this FB post page. But I need to comment about it.

The person described me as a “fundamentalist.” HUH?

The dictionary defines fundamentalist as “a person who believes in the strict, literal interpretation of scripture in a religion:”

This does not describe me at all. So, I feel I need to comment.

First of all, I was raised in the 1st Congregational United Church of Christ of Newark Valley. I have a great deal of thankfulness for this upbringing. I could say Hallelujah and PRAISE THE LORD. But one thing this church was NOT was a church to take a “strict, literal interpretation of scripture.” Not one single bit.

Secondly, in this church we, as kids, were educated in Sunday School. What a shame that this education is no longer being done. We memorized scriptures. For instance, Psalm 23. “…yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil…” Psalm 100: “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD. Serve the LORD with gladness. Come into His gates with Thanksgiving…”

Through church and family with its education from Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, I learned about Psalm 118:24. “This is the day the LORD has made so let us rejoice and give thanks in it.”

From singing in choir, there were a number of things I learned from Dick Kerr (and Pastor Dick Leavitt, too). I learned my mom’s favorite piece was John Stainer’s music based on John 3:16-18: “For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son…. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world.” We learned that the message about “love of neighbor,” not rules from the Bible to make us feel guilty about sin, was the reason God did not CONDEMN the world, but sent his Son to SAVE the world with love.

My grandmother would often quote scriptures. “Judge not lest you be judged.” So don’t throw the book at people based on someone’s interpretation of what sin is. “Idle hands are the devil’s playground.” Perhaps this one justifies a “community center” in NV, but a community center is not the ONLY thing necessary because teaching about spirituality is being dumped down the drain, otherwise.

Does this not prove I am NOT a fundamentalist, or fundie? Perhaps the person who made that comment does not know me. But I have to think it is more about ignorance of what a fundie is. Not reading enough. Not looking into definitions and just throwing out the first thing which comes to mind, even if it is inaccurate.

Recently, someone in NV wanted to argue with me. Lack of knowledge and he claimed there have “never been shootings in the USA due to automatic or semi-automatic rifles.” I said, “REALLY?” And what about Las Vegas, Nevada, a few years back?” Reply: “oh, that never happened.”

With such ignorance of a person aiming at me for being a “fundie” and not knowing what the hell he was talking about, to someone else who thinks no shootings int he USA have been done by automatic weapons (semi-automatic —– WHATEVER —- let us split hairs), demonstrates to me just how bad things are.

Perhaps FB needs to be moderated, not for bad or vulgar language or full frontal nudity or gay sites or drag shows or… but moderated for false information. Fake stuff. And moderated for ignorance which needs correcting. After all, Ben Franklin’s newspaper had an “errata” when there was a correction needed. And this nation was begun in earnest by people like Franklin. Why have we abandoned this approach, except when it comes to censoring gay folk or frontal nudity or… all that other stuff WHICH REALLY DOES NO DAMAGE. But the ignorance does a great deal of damage.

The man who spoke falsely of semi-automatic weapons is much older than me. Which means he got his education perhaps BEFORE Dick Kerr who headed the BOE here? I don’t know. Maybe it was not here in NV, either. For before Dick Kerr, the BOE was directed by Congregationalist Bill Stimming. This man might have been closer in age to this man and I mentioned my dad, as a hunter of animals with guns, was disgusted with allowing semi-automatic rifles to the public. “Why would I shoot a deer or any other animal with a semi-automatic rifle?” Meaning. I don’t shoot people. I shoot animals and would never use such a thing on animals.

I just had to say this. That people need an attitude adjustment towards being humble to LEARN and seek LIFELONG LEARNING which leads to wisdom, not the stupidity of their certainty.

But it takes more than a United Community Center. It takes something like United Church of Christ in order for people to learn about GOD. And there is nothing wrong with LEARNING the CORRECT information about GOD, not the fire and brimstone preaching crap in other churches. Teach, not preach the certainty based on crappy rules invented by control freaks. Seek wisdom, not certainty of crappy stuff.

Repugnican Liars, Liars, Pants on Fire; Be Careful Because you Might Get Burned and GEE – We don’t Want that to Happen, Do We?

What IS on my mind? Finding quotations from many different people. Appreciative because I am able to see them. If I think the quote is very pertinent and we can learn from it, I share it because I believe we all need to learn.

When I share these quotes, at times I get some comment about the person and something the person did which was wrong. Here we go again. Let us ignore the quote because it comes from an imperfect human being who did one thing wrong? The society fixated on sin and guilt of people, not on the IDEAS generated by people.

For example. Hemingway speaks about what is indicated with people feeling superior over others and what we need to consider. I have seen a documentary about Hemingway and realize there are some things which that character was not so nice. But there were many things in his life and literature he wrote which were good. Why should I fixate on the bad?

In the more contemporary world, we have former President Bill Clinton. We know about this woman named Monica Lewinsky. Not a pretty picture for Bill nor for Hillary. I know many gay men who fixated on Bill Clinton’s “don’t ask, don’t tell.” They were so fixated on this that they sat out the election of 2000 when Vice President Al Gore ran. Perhaps there are not many gay people to impact an election. But with that election, between a third party candidate, Ralph Nader (with more issues in agreement with Al Gore) and the population of gay men who sat out the election, that tiny difference gave the election to George W. Bush. (Note: there is evidence that Bush never actually won Florida, but Scalia the dumb ass on the SCOTUS, did the bidding of the Bush family and pushed forward the election of Bush, the man who never won the popular vote nationwide). So, that buries everything good that Bill Clinton did. Literally buries the good things.

One good thing Clinton did was to work out an arrangement with the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to give tax credits to the Middle Class. BTW. Those were tax credits Trump decimated, in favor of corporate welfare and loopholes in the tax code which favored his wealthy cronies.

The result of the Clinton-Gingrich tax credits? A balanced Federal budget and no budget deficit. This balanced budget was passed to George W. Bush who within a short time, turned it back to a deficit once again. How many times do I hear the Democrats being blamed for the Federal deficit? But if Fox can tell a lie over and over again, as with Goebbels in Hitler’s Germany, they make this out to be the truth when it is NOT the truth.

Furthermore, President Obama was beginning to reduce the Federal deficit. Then to see asshole Truumpty Dumpty give the credits to the wealthy and the deficit went up again. There is evidence that President Biden, whom self-righteous assholes call “Sloppy Joe,” has been successful, once again, in reducing the Federal deficit. Self-righteous assholes supporting Trumpty Dumpty have overtaken the House and telling the world that Democrats are at fault. Liars, liars, pants on fire. All because these self-righteous bastard SOBs find ONE THING which Democrats like the Clintons, Obama (i.e., because he is black and not pleasing to asshole self-righteous white supremacists from Dixie and other places), Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris did wrong and dwell on that one thing, burying the good things which they did, with LIES and SLANDER.

I saw the same s*** in the 2012 election from people I knew who were such damn self-righteous bastards, they blamed President Obama for a deficit which had been improving and treated Romney like he was a knight in shining armour to come save the day. Ted Cruz, too, a big fat liar who did the same and then later abandoned his fellow citizens when the power grid failed in a storm.

These people, plus others, within the leadership and the ranks of the Republican Party are nothing but repugnant reptiles. And they get money and lousy asshole Tucker Carlson to cover their asses.

Perhaps I need to apologize because I am not perfect? I am quite certain there is something I may have done in my life in which I was not perfect and did not live up to the GUIDELINES provided to us by Jesus Christ. BEING gay is NOT a guideline from Christ as being a sin, either. God made me, in spite of what ever hormones are in my body which have impacted me. (BTW. I am not NORMAL, so at a younger age, the idea was to beef up my testosterone; I did not live up to the levels defined for males, so the idea was to make me “normal,” right? Men get into old age and find they are lacking testosterone; what I am saying about me is that I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH LACK OF TESTOSTERONE AT A YOUNG AGE; and to clarify to the idiots out there, but not all gay men are gay because of this reason, either; so listen, consider, think, and work out conclusions based on seeking wisdom, not certainty – otherwise, shut your damn mouths).

OK. So I am not “normal.” I am not perfect. One thing is for certain, I NEVER could have done what Bill Clinton did with Monica Lewinsky. But. I am a freak, don’t you know? A freak who has seen the handwriting on the wall, years ago under Reagan s*** regime, just as Daniel in the Bible saw the handwriting on the wall and was treated with s*** because “he is being negative.”

And Jesus Christ spoke out against worshipers of money and the hypocrites. It had nothing to do whether they were Jews or Gentiles. The common thread was his ANGER – WITHOUT GUNS – against money lovers who are the basis of evil. Pete Buttigieg and his being gay is not a sin. But Donald Trump and many others have gone against the basic principle of Jesus Christ – love of neighbor – having fellow feeling. There is evidence that Trump broke how many of the 10 Commandments? Did I hear 9 of the 10? You follow the model of Jesus Christ with love (agape) of neighbor, and you are less likely to break ANY of the 10 Commandments. And that was the intent of the message of the WORD OF GOD MADE FLESH (Gospel of John, chapter 1). Trumpty Dumpty manipulates things so he gets self-righteous ones who call themselves Christians to go along. Such self-righteous ones Christians? More like the evil of the Anti-Christ. Example one. Tucker Carlson. There are many others who are so stupid they go along and are convinced that, due to some imperfection, Democrats are the evil ones, manipulating the crowd, as was the case of the Jewish leaders of the first century, to go against the good things which have been accomplished by Democrats, including President Joe Biden, House Majority Leader, Nancy Pelosi (who, had there not been the prevalence of such lying backed up by Tucker Carlson and other evil journalists in the media, would STILL be the House speaker), Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Stacey Abrams, and yes, Hochul and Andrew Cuomo of New York. Many other good people who are imperfect people but the crowd gets fixated on the wrong things so as to tarnish the images of such good people.

If you are self-righteous and attend a Christian church and don’t like what I say, then leave the church if it is so bad. Because you are HYPOCRITES like the ones whom Jesus Christ spoke out against. Self-righteous money-lovers you are. And when you leave a TRUE Christian church, then don’t let the door hit you in the ass as you leave. Might bruise one cheek. So turn the other one and see if the door bruises you on the other cheek. Oh, how special it is! Isn’t that special? πŸ™‚

Live long and prosper. πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–πŸ–

Repugnican Followers are Stupid People

GODDAMN Repugnicans. I will keep saying this and I don’t care what people think about this statement. The media is not doing its job as it thinks it needs to just portray both sides, even if one side, Repugnicans, are about hate, bigotry, and inhuman crap to make a barbaric world by pitting common folk against one another. Matters not whether it is Trump, McConnell, Clarence Thomas, Mark Robinson, Marjorie Taylor Green, Matt Goetz, Ron DeSicko, Rick the Prick Scott, or Jebbie.

Repugnicans want to kill people in Congress with second-hand smoke because they believe in “freedom and liberty” to allow smoking. That’s right. Whether it kills others who don’t smoke, they don’t give one damn.

So, how do gay folk kill others? Why is it ok for the bastard Repugnicans to FORCE cigarette smoke down people’s throats (literally), in the name of freedom, but Repugnicans won’t allow the freedom of young people to determine who they are? That’s right. The Repugnicans wish to kill people again, with the number of suicides due to young people attempting to deal with who they are and bullies of society forcing them to think one way. Liberty and justice for all means they force people think only one way regarding sexual identity. Bull manure. And how will there be bullies who attack and kill folk who do not agree with the sexual identity of gay folk? In order to win recognition and dignity for gay folk, never was a gun used to kill. We may live in fear that there will be bullies who fake being gay and kill so as to make their point?

And the lack of consistency of parents of gay folk. They don’t want to kill the fetus, but have no qualms about the death of young gay folk due to suicide or attacks by bullies. Very consistent approach to live, wouldn’t you say?

I will NOT give up in taking this stand while the media does nothing to point out the destructive practices of DeSantis and others who claim they have a mandate when they often never even win more that 50% of the vote. Even if they win 75% of the vote, they don’t have a mandate. The only mandate is to get unanimous approval. Maybe they figure they can get unanimous approval by restricting voting rights and performing genocide on any other voters who vote against them? Wonderful. What nice people. NOT. Repugnicans need to be proven as to their lousy attitudes to anyone who disagrees. The media is not doing this.

How Did We Get to Where We Are Today?

I will keep this as short as possible. After all, I am not good enough to have an article the length of a columnist in a newspaper. I am only one of the “others” who writes letters to editors and restricted to a certain length. If more people would read newspapers and the columnists which ONCE were part of the newspapers, this nation might be doing better than it is. Only hope will tell.

The PBS documentary series about Pioneers of Television, like all other PBS documentaries, has been great. A learning tool to enhance the brain cells in our skull! Mom always said, use the brain God gave you. Or. Mind over matter is what Dr. Peale’s message about power of positive thinking was about, not about wishful thinking.

The Pioneers series is on every Monday night. Here in the Binghamton area, it is broadcast on WSKG. Oh, that’s right. Don’t talk about broadcast television because the captains of industry have defined streaming television as what the “in” crowd should like. I don’t follow the “in” crowd, so there. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. Each week it is a different topic. The comedy. The drama. The variety show (now there is an antiquated thing) which we need today rather than the manure piled in our faces with violence, violence, and more violence. Guns and bombs, too. No wonder we have a violent society. Blame the guns, but ignore this prevalent manure in the faces of Americans. I don’t blame the guns, except the automatic weapons which should not be available. I blame the captains of industry over the media who find they can make more money from violence and lies on television. Is it that the ones watching are sickos or the ones at the top, with money, are sickos? You might guess my answer.

At any rate, my messages are long because, as with this last part, I diverged into the topic of variety shows on television. Sorry. My apologies.

What I have INTENDED to focus on is the episode in the Pioneers of Television series on evening soap operas. Those old enough to remember may recall the ones about the elitist fat pigs, or Dallas, Dynasty, Falcon Crest (I loved Falcon Crest because it starred Ronald Reagan’s first wife, Jane Wyman; I loved watching her more than her one-time husband). Middle class (upper) was one titled Knot’s Landing. In these pioneers, I would take a nighttime soap opera out of Australia (ran from 2008-2013), Packed to the Rafters, because it demonstrates the TRUE struggles of the financially strapped Middle Class, not the upper Middle Class. It demonstrated the fighting which can occur within a family, but how ultimately a family CAN pull together. It represents a model of reality which DOES exist in some families. So this program is not an example of “pioneers” of evening soap opera, but mention it as a later edition of evening soap opera, after the 1980s and 1990s.

On this Pioneers documentary, Mary Martin’s son and star of Dallas, Larry Hagman, was interviewed (as were Patrick Duffy who played little brother, Bobby Ewing, and other members of the Dallas cast, during years long after their “pioneering effort”).

Hagman’s comments pretty much go along with the egomaniac character he portrayed, JR Ewing. He bragged that the series Dallas was more responsible for “tear down that wall, Mr. Gorbachev” than the credit given to Ronald Reagan for making that statement.

Perhaps Hagman is correct? Well, by saying this, he identifies one of the problems of America today. One-minded thinking, whether correct or not. Many examples of this exist today Hochul is terrible due to ONE THING. Yet, all the nasty crap Trump, Rick the Prick, McConnell, DeSatan, and others do and we look the other way. With Repugnicans, we look the other way. With Democrats, one-track minds zero in on ONE THING, ignoring all the good things. Hagman may be correct, but there are other examples which validate that wall falling, besides JR Ewing and Ronald Reagan.

1. The Coca-Cola company began to extend itself worldwide. It expanded its sales in communist Soviet Union. The common folk loved it and drank it up, while, according to Hagman, the wealthy at that time (and yes, in spite of claims that there are no classes in a communist system, that is liar, liar, pants on fire).

2. The Coca-Cola company put forth advertisements with the Hillside Singers about the world singing in harmony. If the Soviet common folk viewed the ads, it could have been more from Voice of America, not JR Ewing or Soviet television. Perhaps?

3. It was written that Soviet dictators like Breshnev, like JR Ewing, owned vacation homes. The common folk, or “comrades,” did not because they could not afford them. Do I believe that the common folk of Russia, today, own the same type of vacation home which dictator Putin likely owns? No. Has it improved since the days of JR Ewing? Maybe. But by how much?

4. There were secretive lousy wealthy ones from the Soviet Union infiltrating Western society, long before JR Ewing. So JR Ewing did not create them. They already existed. They were considered better than their “comrades.”

With these four examples (and there could be more), I have to conclude that it is possible Larry Hagman’s remarks are not quite accurate. That historical evidence over time can prove he was not accurate in his statement.

Interestingly enough, the documentary also mentions that brother Bobby Ewing was so popular on the series that when they tried to “kill him off,” fans around the world objected. So, they made the “death scene” a dream, at the beginning of the following series. The documentary goes on to say that Bobby Ewing was the alternative to the greed of JR Ewing. In fact, that Bobby Ewing proved that business could be run WITHOUT greed and selfishness. I was one of the fans of Bobby Ewing, plus his wife (played by Victoria Principal???). I also felt sorry for the way JR’s wife, Suellen was treated by the greedy bastard, JR.

If many fans around the world loved Bobby, the one who proved it does not take greed to run a business, then why do we have so much greed from money-worshipers today who are attempting to dictate our lives? If today’s world and the crumbling of the iron curtain was done because of a love of JR Ewing, who really were the ones who loved him and why do they have so much power, as does Putin and other former communists who run Russia today and work to destroy Ukraine? Greed. Selfishness. Egomaniacs. Sure. Likely modeled after JR Ewing.

But what about the fan base, primarily common folk, who loved Bobby Ewing? They don’t worship money and don’t have as much money, so they evidently don’t have the right to control the lives of the world with a Bobby Ewing attitude. Perhaps Larry Hagman’s statement is correct, but only in the sense that those like JR Ewing and their money worship are controlling society. The influence of Putin over America might be part of it. But what about the wealthy moles in the USA an Western civilization who are lethal to our Western society, out of love for and worship of money? What about the Russian Orthodox and other churches who put more emphasis on money and don’t help those in the world whom Jesus Christ wanted to help, but help the wealthy greedy selfish egomaniac money worshipers/lovers like Putin and others, such as Trump, DeSantis, Rick the Prick, the Bush family… other Repugnicans. They don’t give one damn about the human race, only about their definition of being human. Actually they don’t know what it means to be a civilized human being.

Once again. Perhaps Larry Hagman was somewhat correct in his statement on Pioneers of Television. But he does not have a comment which is the end-all.

Side note. Larry Hagman’s mom, Mary Martin, played the role of BOY, not a girl. Peter Pan. She also was the original Maria Von Trapp in the Broadway production of The Sound of Music. We know about Julie Andrews as Maria in the film version. And Julie Andrews also played a role in Victor/Victoria, too. Stuff that up your rear, DeSatan of Florida.

I am not backing down on pointing out the trash of egomaniacs like DeSatan of Florida. To Jebbie. I insist on standing my ground on this issue, except for one thing. I don’t carry a gun. You perverted ones who work to destroy America and its democracy and replace it with an authoritarian regime similar to the Hitler and Stalin regimes.

You bastard, Tucker Carlson, can invent all the crap you wish to invent about Pete Buttigieg, and then sit behind a smoke screen of hatred for gay folk and homosexuality. That way, you can validate what you say in the form of lies, with that smoke screen present. Also, I have evidence that same-sex couples do a great job of raising their adopted children and those children are NOT always gay. That is because God is the Creator, not humans. I can prove that, in many cases, gay couples do a better job in raising kids than many heterosexual couples, especially those who fear their child is gay and want to ban anything in the schools and in books which might help young kids come to grips with who they are. Fear drives these bastard heterosexuals. Or are some of them doing this because they are actually REPRESSED homosexuals? They are the worst ones. πŸ˜ŠπŸ™πŸ––

Second-hand Smoking

Learned that Repugnicans wish to allow smoking cigarettes in the Capitol building again. Demonstrates just how lousy a character they portray. They want to ban abortions and allow the deaths of countless LIVING people from second-hand smoke. Makes sense to me. (NOT). In other words, people exposed to smoke, 2nd hand, are helpless to do anything about their death, the same thing as the fetus in the womb. Same thing as the older woman who is at risk with a pregnancy. Same thing as the female who is raped. In other words, Repugnicans don’t care about others, only themselves The rest of us be damned. Bizarre example of egomaniacs. 🧐

DeSantis, the Evil One, and His Money Should be Parted

Ron DeSantis and his goons on the boards of trustees of colleges and universities in Florida, likely hates literal anal intercourse. Oh, yeah. I need to say, “taking it up the rear,” like a tailgating idiot on the roads likes to dish out. Like the tail-gaters, probably Republicans who think they are above the law because the sheriff is a Republican, Ron DeSantis believes he is above the law and can figuratively do anal intercourse to those who disagree with him. Where does his money come from that he thinks he has a mandate when at the times he receives less than 50% of the vote or just receiving a simple majority less than 75% of the vote. A mandate to do figurative anal intercourse to his opposition who don’t like to be on the receiving end of such figurative intercourse. Follow the money which is funneled to Ron DeSantis. Is it the Russian Mafia or South Florida? Is it Russian wealth hidden as moles in Britain (a real estate person from Britain worked for Donald Trump…)? Does the money originate with the drug cartels of America which manipulate illicit drugs coming into America so Trump and company can jail the users and the little guys selling the drugs but conjure up support for a GODDAMN wall and hate for immigrants? Does the money come from American corporate PACs? Does it come from American corporate PACs who, like the Bush family, have a vengeance because Democrat FDR froze their assets some 70 years or so ago. Gee. (Our family did not have our assets frozen and we don’t make enough money today to run for government office). The beef against Democrats is run by assholes with money, due to being vengeful of FDR and LBJ. LBJ? He signed the Civil Rights Act of 1965 and the Voters Rights Act of 1965.

These assholes with the money exemplify a worship of money because their god is money and they believe they have a divine right to rule us. I may have fear of the true GOD, but not the god of money. Where does the money originate with DeSantis and the others? Inquiring minds want to know, not all the bull manure shoved at us by the media these days.

And the academic side of all that bull manure in the media lacks so much understanding by the rank and file common folk, that they fall into line with lies and conspiracy theories spread by the money which goes to DeSantis and others.

I repeat. Where does the money to DeSantis, Trump, Rick the Prick, and other Repugnicans originate? Those folk are probably paranoid that the nation might discover where it originates.
