When I grew up, I addressed everyone outside of my family who was as old or older than my parents as either “sir” or “ma’am”. Today, as we look forward to another Thanksgiving with young students returning home across America, I am wondering who do they really think they are…and just as importantly, who do they really think we are?
I had the opportunity to interact with a couple of them in the wake of the…shall we say less than hospitable reception they gave NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly at Brown University last month. I had someone post my open letter to the students of Brown University, and Zeus himself was gracious enough to stoop down from his throne on Mt. Olympus long enough to correct my “metal” and eventually indulge my archaic notions.
After an exhausting exchange of the most illusive nature I can only describe as “pretzel logic” with someone so high up, I wondered if he could even hear me at all…we ended up on the subject of Obamacare:
Chip- I would only add (Zeus) that regarding your point for the need to look more objectively at Obamacare and how do I know any new source is trustworthy. “Perspective” is key…our eyes, nose, ears…and experience. Experience gives a man a pretty good BS Meter (Zeus). We saw him say 39 times, “If you like your healthcare, you can keep your healthcare. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. Period!” Now millions of Americans; white, yellow, black, blue & red, liberal & conservative, republican & democrat, young and old are being canceled Ian…this is being reported by ALL news sources!! It was never about “affordable health” (Zeus)…it was always about government controlling our lives. Period.
Zeus- I also will not tolerate your offensive ethnic slurs: “Now millions of Americans; white, yellow, black, blue & red, liberal & conservative, republican & democrat, young and old are being canceled Ian…this is being reported by ALL news sources!!” I hope you mean ‘red’ as communist, because if you are referring to Native Americans (as the race-related context suggests), you are being offensive. [I assume that you do not mean blue and red politically, because your subsequent dichotomy would be redundant.] Similarly, I hope you mean yellow as in cowardly or sensational, because if (again, as the race-related context suggests) you are referring to Asian-Americans, then your slur is offensive and racially insensitive. There is no need to use racist language.
At this point I am realizing that the indoctrination has been so complete, there is no possible way to have a rational conversation with a mind that has been so thoroughly programmed for the “new” patriotism!
From the heroic fields of the “new patriotism” We have no need for inconvenient Truths…or math for that matter! Here we learn how to lie convincingly! From here we learn that the preservation of victimhood is far more important than the preservation of the Constitution itself. From our Ivy perch atop Mt. Olympus, there is no need to compete in the arena of ideas…fortunately for us. We simply vanquish the offenders…
We have no need to stop & think how the sin of Stop & Frisk compares to the Storm & Violate police-state tactics in New Orleans and Boston because we are “Gods, Geniuses & Walking Superpowers”…building ourselves a brighter serfdom! Please pass the turkey…Zeus!
