Truth is incontrovertible; malice may attack it and ignorance may deride it; but, in the end; there it is.”
Winston Churchill

People keep thinking they can make TRUTH into whatever they want it to be.  Governments are the worse offenders.

It will NEVER work.

Man cannot manipulate the TRUTH.  Man cannot change natural laws, the laws of science.

People are foolish in this.  TRUTH continues to win out.

There are many examples;  surely you can think of some.

Visionaries who advance a completely new way of thinking are often rewarded with fame and fortune. But that is not always the case. Intellectual revolutions rarely happen overnight. When a doctor or scientist divorces himself from mainstream opinion, he is most often met with indifference. And in many cases, these visionary men and women have been ostracized and even persecuted.

When Galileo announced that the earth revolves around the sun, the religious and scientific authorities refused to look at his mathematical proofs. Galileo’s reward was a trip to jail.

In 1847, a doctor named Semmelweis found that by washing his hands after delivering one infant and before going on to the next, he was able to reduce infant mortality in his clinics from 16% to only 1%. His ideas brought him abuse and rejection by his peers. Semmelweis died dejected and insane some 15 years later.

The same drama has played out over and over again throughout history and is prevalent in the scientific and medical communities even today.

The reasons for this are simple.  These visionaries are the elites that move civilization forward.  The common man is of little worth in comparison.  The elites change the current order; those that were above are pushed down – these false leaders.

Thus a large number of people are forced to admit they are ordinary and not important in the world.

There is nothing wrong with being ordinary; but there is a lot wrong about thinking YOU are better than you are:  it distorts peoples’ view of the world, both the individual and of people as a group.  This causes incorrect/bad decisions to be made.

“Would you prefer a United States where the typical family income was $100,000 per year but the top 5 percent averaged $500,000 a year or five times the typical family, or a United States where the typical family income was $30,000 a year but the top 5 percent averaged only $60,000 or twice that of the typical family?”

In other words, do you think overall prosperity is more important, or equality?  If you answered “equality” then you’re probably a believer in Big Government, Big Spending, and Big Taxes.

We do not care how much someone else makes as long as our own quality of life is good and we have the freedom to do what we want.  We do not really understand the “envy syndrome” where people attack others’ success even if those attacks result in a lower level of success for everyone (including themselves).

After all, the societies with the greatest freedom (and not so coincidentally, the greatest wealth) usually have the smallest wealth disparities, not the highest.  Trying to “make everyone equal” fails  —  like all such government programs in the end  —  and creates greater inequalities than ever before.

Indeed, as the article concludes:  “The failure of socialism and welfare statism clearly show those who demand equality at the expense of prosperity will get neither equality nor prosperity.”

Political Correctness – Stupidity And Evil

leave a comment »

An ancient Chinese proverb tells us: “The beginning of wisdom is to call things by their right names.”

By the same token, a doctor cannot cure an ailment without an accurate diagnosis. The physician needs to know exactly what he’s dealing with before he can figure out how to cure it.

Political correctness is an EVIL lack of wisdom.  Instead of calling symptoms by an accurate description, society is pushing the hiding of reality with invented names.


Because fact and truth are not what people want; people want make believe, a sure sign of stupidity.

People refuse to admit the truth about themselves:  they want to deny their lack of personal worth; these are the lazy, incompetent and criminal.

Fact and truth are best described by real and accurate names.  Remember:  the truth usually hurts.

Only through fact and truth will the problems of the world be solved.

37 Facts About How Cruel This Economy Has Been To Millions Of Desperate American Families

Have you ever laid in bed awake at night with a knot in your stomach because you didn’t know how your family was possibly going to make it through the next month financially? Have you ever felt the desperation of not being able to provide the basic necessities for your family even though you tried as hard as you could?

All over America tonight, there are millions of desperate families that are being  ripped apart by this economy. There aren’t nearly enough jobs, and millions of  Americans that actually do have jobs aren’t making enough to even provide the basics for their families. When you have tried everything that you can think of and nothing  works, it can be absolutely soul crushing.  Today, one of my regular readers explained that he was not going to be online for a while because his power had been turned off.  He has been out of work for quite a while, and eventually the money runs out. Have you ever been there?

If you have ever experienced that moment, you know that it stays with you for the rest of your life. If you are single that is bad enough, but when you have to look into the eyes of your children and explain to them why there won’t be any dinner tonight or why they have to move into a homeless shelter it can feel like someone has driven a stake into your heart. In this article you will find a lot of very shocking economic statistics. But please remember that behind each statistic are the tragic stories of  millions of desperately hurting American families.

Over the past decade, things have steadily gotten worse for American families no matter what our politicians have tried. Poverty and government dependence continue to rise. The cost of living continues to go up and incomes continue to go down. It is truly frightening to think about what this country is going to look like if current trends continue.

The following are 37 facts that show how cruel this economy has been to millions of desperate American families…

1. One recent survey discovered that 40 percent of all Americans have $500 or less in savings.

2. A different recent survey found that 28 percent of all Americans do not have a single penny saved for emergencies.

3. In the United States today, there are close to 10 million households that do not have a single bank account. That number has increased by about a million since 2009.

4. Family homelessness in the Washington D.C. region (one of the wealthiest regions in the entire country) has risen 23 percent since the last recession began.

5. The number of Americans living in poverty has increased by about 6 million over the past four years.

6. Median household income has fallen for four years in a row. Overall, it has declined by more than $4000 over the past four years.

7. 62 percent of middle class Americans say that they have had to reduce household spending over the past year.

8. According to a survey conducted by the Pew Research Center, 85 percent of middle class Americans say that it is more difficult to maintain a middle class standard of  living today than it was 10 years ago.

9. In the United States today, 77 percent of all Americans are living to paycheck to paycheck at least some of the time.

10. In the United States today, more than 41 percent of all working age Americans are not working.

11. Since January 2009, the “labor force” in the United States has increased by 827,000, but “those not in the labor force” has increased by 8,208,000. This is how they have gotten the unemployment numbers to “come down”.

12. Sadly, 60 percent of the jobs lost during the last recession were mid-wage jobs, but 58 percent of the jobs created since then have been low wage jobs.

13. Today, about one out of every four workers in the United States brings home wages that are at or below the federal poverty level.

14. Right now, the United States actually has a higher percentage of workers doing low wage work than any other major industrialized nation does.

15. At this point, less than 25 percent of all jobs in the United States are “good jobs”, and that number continues to shrink.

16. There are now 20.2 million Americans that spend more than half of their incomes on housing.  That represents a 46 percent increase from 2001.

17. According to USA Today, many Americans have actually seen their water bills triple over the past 12 years.

18. Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

19. In 1999, 64.1 percent of all Americans were covered by employment-based health insurance. Today, only 55.1 percent are covered by employment-based health insurance.

20. Health insurance premiums rose faster than the overall rate of inflation in 2011 and that is happening once again in 2012. In fact, it has been happening for a very long time.

21. According to one recent survey, approximately 10 percent of all employers in the United States plan to drop health coverage when key provisions of the new health care law kick in less than two years from now.

22. Back in 1983, the bottom 95 percent of all income earners had 62 cents of debt for every dollar that they earned. By 2007, that figure had soared to $1.48.

23. Total home mortgage debt in the United States is now about 5 times larger than it  was just 20 years ago.

24. Total consumer debt in the United States has risen by 1700 percent since 1971.

25. Recently it was announced that total student loan debt in the United States has passed the one trillion dollar mark.

26. According to one recent survey, approximately one-third of all Americans are not paying their bills on time at this point.

27. Right now, approximately 25 million American adults are living at home with their parents.

28. The percentage of Americans that find that they are able to retire when they reach retirement age continues to decline. According to one new survey, 70 percent of middle class Americans plan to work during retirement and 30 percent plan to work until they are at least 80 years old.

29. The U.S. economy lost more than 220,000 small businesses during the recent recession.

30. In 2010, the number of jobs created at new businesses in the United States was less than half of what it was back in the year 2000.

31. Back in 2007, 19.2 percent of all American families had a net worth of zero or less than zero.  By 2010, that figure had soared to 32.5 percent.

32. Approximately 57 percent of all children in the United States are living in homes that are either considered to be either “low income” or impoverished.

33. In the United States today, somewhere around 100 million Americans are considered to be either “poor” or “near poor”.

34. In October 2008, 30.8 million Americans were on food stamps. Today, 46.7 million Americans are on food stamps.

35. Approximately one-fourth of all children in the United States are enrolled in the food stamp program.

36. Right now, more than 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government. And that does not even count Social Security or Medicare.

37. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 49 percent of all Americans live in a home where at least one person receives financial assistance from the federal government. Back in 1983, that number was less than 30 percent.

What makes all of this even more frightening is that many homeless shelters and food banks around the nation are so overloaded at this point that they are already over capacity.  Just consider this example…

When Janice Coe, a homeless advocate in Loudoun County, learned through her prayer group that a young woman was sleeping in the New Carrollton Metro station with a toddler and a 2-month-old, she sprang into action.

Coe contacted the young woman and arranged for her to take the train to Virginia,  where she put the little family up in a Comfort Suites hotel. Then Coe began calling shelters to see who could take them.

Despite several phone calls, she came up empty. Coe was shocked to learn that many of the local shelters that cater to families were full, including Good Shepherd Alliance,  where Coe was once director of social services.

“I don’t know why nobody will take this girl in,” Coe said. “The baby still had a hospital bracelet on her wrist.”

Keep in mind that Loudoun Country is smack dab in the middle of one of the wealthiest areas of Virginia.

So if things are that bad in the wealthy areas, exactly how bad are things getting in many of the poorer areas?

Unfortunately, things continue to get worse for this economy. DuPont has just announced plans to eliminate 1,500 jobs. There are more major layoff  announcements almost every single day.  So how bad will things get when our  crumbling economic system finally collapses?  When kind of chaos will be unleashed  all over the nation when millions upon millions of Americans finally lose all hope?

In the introduction to this article, I mentioned that one of my regular readers has had his lights turned off. The following is how he described his situation…

No gas, no water, no electricity at my house. Couldn’t pay the bills. I’m broke.   Desperately searching for any means of income, or at least enough cash to get the juice (electricity) restored.

Typing this missive in a dark house using the battery on my laptop. Feels like I’m camping out at home. Hope to get this situation fixed tomorrow¦ somehow. Needless to say, I hate this.

I was ready for this, but it is still a major league inconvenience. For those of you who DO have power, etc. – and are not ready oh brother. You need to get ready. Seriously,  you do. Because what I’m going through is just an inconvenience. It may someday be a normal occurrence. Ugh. (expletives deleted)

Hopefully a way can be found to get his situation turned around, but the truth is that there are tens of millions of other similar stories out there in America today.

What about you? What are things like in your neck of the woods?

The above article by Michael, the economic collapse.


The economy of the United States is failing.  It has been failing for many years.  The politicians and the government have been unable and/or unwilling to do anything about it.  So, the economy is going to continue to fall/fail.  More and more Americans are going to live in absolute poverty; until almost everybody does, like a third world nation.

What is/are the answer(s)/solution(s)?
