A Tally of Tumtwaddle

From 2015:

Dear conservatives and Constitutionalists:
This has been an interesting week, in the Chinese sense. Many are kvetching that it is the end of our economy, others are whining "Come, Lord Jesus" over the preponderance of rainbows online (I hold firm with the prayer for the Lord's return, but not as whinging over political downturns. The hymn does NOT say "Whine Up O Men of God....). There is a vast cataract of bloviation on one side, and mean-spirited poor winners on the other.
Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
What we have seen is a result of a vast stratagem, that of Wearing Down the Opposition. For close to fifty years, the homosexual lobby has worked tactical magic day-to-day, from making Christians look silly by ignoring Biblical context, to having VERY sympathetic and likeable characters on TV shows, to marching their brand constantly before the watching world.
They have lived and put forth supreme effort for their beliefs and lifestyle.
Because of this, 1.5-2% of the population has popularised what used to the sin that has no name by turning it to something akin to civic virtue, and by demanding not mere acceptance, no, but celebration and rights for what has never existed before in 5000 years of history, homosexual marriage being equivalent legally and socially to what Jesus defined as "a man shall leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife". (see, Jesus DID talk about it, too!) In doing that they also accrued a large base of supporters, because if you DON'T agree, they will call you made-up names in public. That would be uncool, and you would likely not be invited to the best parties.
How was this accomplished? By unflagging effort to reach the goal.
Dear conservatives, Christians, and Constitutionalists, they BELIEVED, then ACTED unyieldingly to accomplish their tasks. Were we as convinced in our own concerns, we would have stormed cities, state capitols, the very Capitol in D.C., and demanded that those who purport to represent us DO SO. Those who are treasonous would have been arrested, and we would have brought about a renascence of our Constitutional Republic. This is a truth I speak, and you had best hear it. Why did we not fill the streets of D.C.? Why did we not clog the halls of Congress with our demands? Were we so busy that we could not get away? Busy with what? Franklin said that the Founders gave us a Republic, if we could keep it. Was the second car, the bass boat, the vacation so important that we could not be BOTHERED to take back our country?
By all means, let us moan, weep, gnash our teeth, and NOW call on the Almighty to get us out of this mess. OUR mess, for had we the will our fellow citizens had for their interests, we would have won the day by sheer force of numbers. But no, social media, talk radio, "conservative news", all were enough, we thought, we hoped. Someone else will do the heavy lifting. Last year a retired Army guy tried to organise a peaceful siege of Washington D.C. Few could be bothered, and it fizzled.
"Maybe God is judging Amurrica!" Stop blaming the Almighty for our own almighty sorriness. And as I point my finger of indignation, I am cognizant that three are aimed at me. Nothing short of a revolution will change things, now. I question if we are man enough to even begin to consider thinking about the possibility of debating the need to talk about forming a committee to establish the by-laws for drafting a plan such as we would need.
We have been weighed in the balance, and found sorely wanting. "How can he say this?"
Because we have repeatedly and overwhelmingly lost. Behold the new force in American politics: The Loser Majority.
Here endeth the lesson.


From 2016

The planet's inhabitants have survived well for many millennia as clans, tribes, and nation-states. No globalist pretensions, except once, and the kibosh was put on that, giving Berlitz a career.
The frantic flailing over BREXIT shows that some never learn. Globalism, UN hegemony, internationalist cabals, whichever buzzword suits, is nothing more than a political-economic Babel, which, given humankind's predilection to fussing, is destined to fragment anyway. Power and profits for those at the top will not be sufficient to maintain the solidarity of the masses. National sovereignty may be as ingrained as eye color, and reversion to it will come, sooner rather than later.

A little late.
"Good Omens".
It's a FANTASY. People learning to treat each other kindly.
By all means, hyperventilate.


Star Trek: Discovery.

And I thought the Excelsior
was ugly!


Dear, dear Chuck Schumer.
You are fretting over voting security.
Here ya go:
Voter ID.

In regards to the signature item in your missive: I feel it's also a problem in communication. Far too many people call upon God not as the Almighty Ruler of the All, but rather in the same manner they use to call a basset hound. We've become far too accustomed to considering God as a plumber's helper, or a personal SCUD missile.

And all the noise. Mother Teresa wisely reminded us how we need to find God, and he cannot be found in noise and restlessness. God is the friend of silence. See how nature - trees, flowers, grass- grows in silence; see the stars, the moon and the sun, how they move in silence... We need silence to be able to touch souls.

In other news---

Star Trek Discovery is the first entry in the franchise which is ugly all over.


Currently watching a performance of Taylor's "Our American Cousin". I wonder if there are some performances where someone in the crowd is instructed to yell out BANG halfway during Act III.
