MORT’s meanderings

What is seriously wrong today,
Nov. 12, 2017, here in the USA?
Today and everyday, all day, no matter which of the three TVs in my home I am watching, I squirm in my seat, foam at the mouth and stamp my feet on the floor when I am subjected to the panoply of cookie-cutter, biased news shows being interrupted by one stupid, inane commercial being attached without interruption to another in a series of stupid, inane commercials.  Are you catching the gist of my dilemma?  Are you beginning to understand the cause of my dyspepsia?
I am pummeled with transparently insincere, cardboard actors who are flacking gold & silver that is touted to make my portfolio secure from the ravages of the upside-down, inside-out economy.  I wouldn’t believe any of them on a stack of Bibles. Precisely who in Hell do the sponsors think they are fooling?
Even more morally reprehensible if that is possible, are the non-stop, insipid commercials for prescription medications with lots of Xs & Zs in their names, supposedly one presumes, to make them sound potent.  They promise to cure any ailment, followed by a crushing list of possible side-effects that is delivered at warp speed by hired speakers with forked tongues. Plus, each and every one of these commercials includes the admonition to ‘tell your doctor what is wrong with you’him  and to axx him how he feels about providing you with a prescription to access these poison cures.
Then, there is that ober-nox-ious pillow pusher who glibly guarantees you instant and glorious sleep by him customizing one of his pillows, simply by scientifically punching it into a configuration that magically renders it specifically shaped to precisely accommodate your individual, misshapen neck & spine.
Oh, there’s more . . . much more however, this being Sunday, I’m committed to sit before one of my TVs and switch from channel to channel in order to assure that I demonstrate my ire and justifiable outrage at each NFL game being played by the ‘Knee-taking Millionaires’ replete with dreadlocks, beards and lunatic gyrations at the end of each tackle, sack, touchdown or yellow flag being thrown.  One can only imagine the out-of-this-world joy it must be to attend one of these games in person and thrill at the outlay of a thousand bucks or more for such an obvious  hustle.  And, to be there live, to view the game at such a distance as to not be able to follow the football but, to be able to view it on the Jumbotron at the far end of the field – what a pleasure!
But now, back to my TV viewing – I always have a pencil and paper close by to write down the names of the diverse racial, ethnic and sexually-liberated lawyers who comprise the dozen-or-so names in the masthead of the legal firms that are so ready, willing and able to fight the good fight on my behalf, if only I’ll permit them to sue somebody, anybody, for anything that might possibly have been done to me by one of this nation’s thousands of demonic, bungling surgeons.
Then, there is that utterly obernoxious Pillsbury dough-Girl dressed in white (why?) with the word, ‘PROGRESSIVE’ emblazoned in blue across her white apron (why an apron?) who has the identical effect on me that I get when I stick my finger down my throat.  What is it about these ludicrous commercials that causes me to wretch, in addition to knowing that the insurance company that sponsors this eye & ear pollution, is funded by George Soros, among other Communists and  assorted, unsavory leftists that you wouldn’t want to babysit your children. If for no other reason than I know the Harley Owners Group doesn’t include even one member motorcyclist who patronizes this ‘insurance company’, I would wish to see ‘PROGRESSIVE’ take a nose-dive into obscurity.  I can assure you of that.
As to the many weight-loss advertisers that promise highly-unlikely miracles, they send me fleeing to the fridge, just to see what fattening foods I can find to jam into my mouth before resuming my semi-prone position in front of one of my three TV’s.  Did I mention that I have three TVs in my home?

Are Cops Targeting Black Males and Killing Them?

If you listen to the “racial arsonists” like Black Lives Matter, the Congressional Black Caucus, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the “kneeling” NFL players, you'd think that the police around the country are indiscriminately targeting “innocent” blacks and killing them. Is there any substance to those charges? Let's examine the facts.

The FBI released its 2016 crime tally recently, and it is in direct conflict with the above named groups or people who are claiming police are unjustifiably killing black males for apparently no other reason other than they are black.

According to the liberal Washington Post newspaper, in 2016, the police shot 233 blacks, the vast majority who were armed and dangerous. The paper categorized only 16 black victims of police shootings as being “unarmed”. That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest.

According to crime reporter, Heather MacDonald of the City Journal, contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males should fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

More facts. Black males made up 42% of all cop killers over the last decade, though they are only 6% of the population. That 18.5% ratio, of cops being killed by black males undoubtedly worsened in 2016.

Where have most of the killings of black males taken place? Here's a breakdown of murders taken place (most murders were of black males) in some of the cities of the United States that are mostly all run by Democrat politicians and inhabited by a large percentage, if not a majority, of mostly black residents. Out of the 5,100 murders related to gun violence, 9.4% were in Chicago (480 homicides – this year (2017) the murder total has already gone over 500); 6.7% in Baltimore (344 homicides); 6.5% in Detroit (333 homicides); 2.3% in Washington D.C (119 homicides which is over a 54% increase from prior years). So, 25% of all gun homicides happens in just 4 cities, and all these cities have strict gun laws, so it is not the lack of gun laws that is the root cause. Most people attribute this increase in violent crime to the breakdown in the family and the absence of a father figure in the home environment, and the increase in drug trafficking. Other cities with high violent crime rates are St. Louis, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Miami etc., all liberal Democrat-run cities. Do you think there a correlation in that fact?

In Chicago, most all of the 500 plus homicides committed against blacks are by other blacks, not the police.

That phony chant by the Black Lives Matter organization, “Hands up, Don't Shoot”, has been proven to be a lie. This was a carryover from the incident in Ferguson, Missouri whereby a “white” police officer was acquitted by a jury of the murder of a black youth (which decision was subsequently approved by the Obama Justice Dep't) and from which violent riots ensued . This same “racist” group BLM, are the same one's who have gone around the country chanting, “Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon” (referring to police officers), and “What do we want, DEAD COPS, When do we want it, NOW”. This racial agitation has been supported by former President Barack Obama, who had invited them to the White House, and by most of the members of the Congressional Black Caucus who have openly supported them. Never have we seen such a racial divide, at least since the Civil War, as we have now. It seems that everything revolves around the term “racism”, real or imagined, and many in the black community blame their plight on white “racism”, when, in fact, they should look in the mirror and see who are the real racists?

In conclusion, there is no concerted effort on the part of the police to target and kill innocent black males, in fact, it is the police who should fear the violence against them. When a policeman violates his oath of office, he should face the consequences of his wrongful actions, but this blanket condemnation of the police in targeting the killing of blacks is a total sham and is unwarranted and should be condemned.

We now have the chance to turn America on again

I am suffering BS fatigue listening to the rhetoric coming
from phony liberal black supremacists who depict them-
selves holier than thou, by keeping racism alive and milking
it for everything they can get out of it, accusing conservatives
of being the racists.

On behalf of minorities and people of color, liberal media is
depicting civil rights as exclusive to them.

Political correctness, affirmative action, anti 2nd Amendment
and 1st Amendment rights for conservatives are designed to
deprive conservatives of their civil rights.

It isn't whites who are responsible for the black illegitimate
births that create teenage mothers and fatherless families,
that in some inner cities are as much as 80%.

It isn't whites who murder blacks in Chicago and in other black
neighborhoods. It is by other blacks.

It is an attitude of victimization that deters them from progress
into a productive society.

It is idolizing the wrong role models who set bad examples to
follow. There are many none whites who broke out of the
victimization mold and called Uncle Toms that are setting
examples to follow and be proud of.

Eight years of the Obama era turned the real America off. We
now have the chance to turn America on again.

Is Free Speech in Trouble?

Never in the history of the United States has the right of “freedom of speech” been so challenged as in the last decade or so. If you have an opinion that does not comply with a certain group or groups, you might become subject of abuse, censorship, and even threats of physical harm. The sector of the population most susceptible to this denial of free speech are the conservatives and people of religious faith, who have been targeted for repression of their views, thoughts, and ideas. A perfect example is the recently admitted IRS (Internal Revenue Service) attacks against conservative groups prior to the 2012 election. After repeated lawsuits, the IRS finally has agreed that they “illegally” targeted these groups and have now agreed to reimburse these conservative groups for the IRS harassment of denying or delaying their petitions for tax exempt status. But, there have been no meaningful penalties against the perpetrators of this prejudicial action, including the past IRS supervisor, Lois Lerner, who got away “scot free” and was allowed to retire with a very nice government pension.

Over the past decade or so, persons espousing conservative views have been denied the opportunity or chance to speak at various colleges and public events by people mainly representing the left, who disagree with their views and, sometimes, to their personal animosity ttoward the speaker. The so-called “free speech universities” have been some of the more egregious venues where the suppression has taken place. The University of California at Berkeley is a prime example of the stifling of free speech. This was the school back in the 60's and 70's that was home to the “free speech movement” (of course, even back then the speech that was “free”, was liberal speech).

Very seldom, if any, do you read about conservatives (or Republicans) shutting down a liberal speaker, it is always the other way around ( ex: Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, Dinesh D'Souza, Alan Derschowitz (a Democrat and supporter of Israel), Pamela Geller, and certain authors of controversial books that the left has deemed unacceptable).

Today, “political correctness” has taken hold in many areas of our society. These “unelected” protectors of what should or not be allowed to be expressed in public (the P.C Police), have taken over many college campuses across the country, led by radical professors and brain-washed students. If you don't comply with what they deem a proper position of the issues, they will disrupt you and try shut you down from speaking. The trend today, is that if you espouse a conservative or religious viewpoint, you will be called a “racist” or a “bigot”, only because you challenge the viewpoints of the “P.C. Police”.

The word “racist” is being used constantly by the “liberal left” as a catchphrase for anybody whose views are deviating from the accepted liberal playbook. Two of the greatest practitioners of using the word “racist” are the two liberal “race-baiters”, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, both Democrats, who are masters of the “racial shakedown”. These phony “civil rights” leaders are nothing but con artists and shakedown specialists. Their glory days were during the 8 years of the Obama Administration, as they both had unlimited access to the White House. Now, with Pres. Trump, residing in the White House, they don't have that access or platform to further their “race hustling”.

So, in conclusion, our 1st Amendment rights are under attack, but with Pres. Trump in charge and in the White House, you have someone who isn't afraid to take on these “free speech” suppressors. The biggest obstacles to these anarchists being able to continue on their attacks on free speech, are the media, who should be in the forefront of preserving free speech, but are noticeably absent because most of the members of the 4th Estate” are politically left-leaning liberals, therefore they generally turn a blind eye to the plight of conservatives and people of faith.

MORT’s meanderings

It is my assessment that ‘DIVERSITY’ per se, is as contra-indicated in a nation’s make-up as would be a cook’s recipe for a dish that contains one-each of every vegetable, fruit, fish, fowl & meat available on Earth.  It is a totally useless burden to impose upon a nation, when it represents nothing more than the pursuit of the lunacy that is ‘Political Correctness’.  To bet the store on collecting a diverse ‘representative’ number of unvetted foreign immigrants of all political persuasions and indoctrinations of un-American zealotry, simply to foster the pipe-dream of a nation of some 300+ million people all sitting around a camp-fire and singing, ‘Kumbaya’, makes no sense to me.
Further, it is my observation that an astonishingly large portion of the people who reside in the United States of America are committed to blindly chasing the illusion of ‘EQUIVALENCE’.  In the ‘Declaration of Independence’, the initial document conceived and produced by the Founding Fathers of this nation, the first sentence in the second paragraph states:  “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal - -”.  Nowhere in this or any of the Founding documents to follow, is there any mention implied or otherwise that guarantees equal outcome of fame or fortune for all citizens.  To infer that such ‘equivalence’ is somehow a right, is to add more pie-in-the-sky verses to, ‘Kumbaya’.  
It seems to me that the impossible leap from stark reality to the pursuit of the lunacy of Government-imposed equivalence, is never a problem for Democrats.  These rigidly-inflexible Americans are seen to embrace the concept of equivalence that includes white supremacists, the biased media, Holocaust deniers, race hustlers, devotees of Islam, ISIS, Palestinian separatists, haters of Israel, President Trump and all Republicans & Conservatives, and the entire litany of Obama’s   divisive policies.  I hear the echo of that hoary chant of past decades, “Can’t we all  get along?”  It is not impossible.  Just, terribly unlikely.
