Transcendentalism ~ Candace Owens
Transcendentalism is the pursuit of the best version of oneself.
Transcendentalism is the practice of overcoming obstacles, in pursuit of personal excellence.
Candace Owens is a Revolutionary.
Because about 80% of people, Black, White, and otherwise, don't think for themselves, Candace Owens grew up following the herd, and ~ being Black ~ aligned with the Democratic Party.
In the time of John FitzGerald Kennedy, the Democratic Party was magnificent.
Since then, it has descended into a Stalinist atrocity.
This is not your GrandFather's Democratic Party.
Candace Owens had the courage to realize that, and to annihilate the constraints foisted upon her by the suffocating and suppressive bonds of tradition and peer pressure.
She created The Blexit Foundation to enlighten Black Patriots.
Donald Trump has done infinitely more for Black America ~ and for all honest, hard-working Americans ~ than that poisonous scumbag, Barack Obama, ever did.
Candace Owens sought Truth. She found it. And now she's spreading the word:
BlackOut: How Black America Can Make Its 2nd Escape From The Democratic Plantation.
Random Political Thought of the Day
“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ― Ronald Reagan
1 ~ Donald Trump, Jackass or not, loves America, and loves Freedom. The fact that he happens to be a magnificent President, on par with Kennedy, Lincoln, Reagan, and Roosevelt, is almost beside the point. He already has oceans of money. He's doing all of this...for us.
2 ~ Joseph Biden hates America. And where Trump wants to serve, Biden wants to rule. We are on the brink of precisely the extinction of Freedom which Reagan warned us about.
Maniacal Monday Music ~ Van Halen
In the wake of Brother Eddie's Wake, it seems apropos to send out some Love to An Immortal:
The Grand Collaboration between Eddie Van Halen and David Lee Roth ~ as well as Brother Michael Anthony and Alexander Van Halen ~ was unlike any other, before or since:
Runnin' With The Devil
Ain't Talkin' 'Bout Love
Dance The Night Away
Somebody Get Me a Doctor
And The Cradle Will Rock
Everybody Wants Some
So This Is Love?
Hot For Teacher
Just a magnificent Band. And they loved Brother Jack Daniels, which is entirely to their credit.
And their live performances were amazing. Case in point:
Maniacal Monday Monsters ~ Godzilla!!
Booyah! Might'as well start with The Greatest of Them All!
I've always felt sympatico with Brother Godzilla: He is one Monster who is clearly The Good Guy, yet that is combined ~ and this is rare ~ with a colossal level of destructive RAGE.
Godzilla wields a righteous fury, Brothers and Sisters!
That's my boy.
And of course I'm talking about the real Godzilla, the one from those delightfully horrible Japanese films of yesteryear, not the Matthew Broderick sewage and other recent adaptations.
The real Godzilla has personality.
The real Godzilla is somebody you actually root for.
The clowns who've made the more recent versions focused entirely on his destructive power, and completely ignored his personality, shrinking his head to a pin size, and treating his legendarily terrifying howl as an afterthought. It's almost impressive, how horrifically they botched it.
Should I ever make my Fortune, I will see to it that Godzilla gets the respect he deserves.
Random Political Thought of the Day
I work 7 Nights/Week, and 60 Hours/Week (2 Shifts are 10 Hour Shifts), and try to work out for 2 Hours/Day, so I have an excuse, but it nevertheless bothers me that my arc of thought and the development of more consistently good habits didn't happen early enough for this young, developmental Blog to've risen to a point of wide-spread distribution in time to make an appreciable impact on the 2020 election. For, while clowns like Sean Hannity have been sermonizing, it seems, about every single current election being the most crucial, vitally momentous ones of our lives since the dawn of the millennium...this time, it's true.
1 ~ I did not vote for Donald Trump in 2016. But he has earned my vote. He has cut Taxes aggressively, he has dramatically beefed up our Military, has has reconfigured taxes, regulations, tariffs, and trade agreements to bring oceans of jobs back home, he has done more to protect our nation from the open sewer pipe of open borders and Criminalien raw sewage than any President has ever done, and he has improved the Working Class Job Market sensationally.
2 ~ Joe Biden has proven 1000 times over that he would be a horrifically nightmarish President, one who would destroy our economy by shutting everything down, jacking up taxes, and destroying the Energy Industry, and one who, based on his track record, would allow our Defensive Infrastructure to decay, would give all our jobs back to China, and allow the mass-murdering, blatantly evil Chinese Communists eclipse America as the world's Super Power.
3 ~ The fact that Joe Biden has been proven, beyond a reasonable doubt, to be guilty of Treason, in selling America out to its worst enemy ~ China ~ as well as Russia and The Ukraine ~ THE Ukraine ~ in return for millions of dollars that he brazenly laundered through his family, and the fact that he is clearly a demented, angry, evil asshole, with intense inclinations towards pedophilia, evidently inherited by his son, is almost beside the point. He would make a horrific President.
4 ~ Donald Trump, whatever you think of his personality, is a dream President. He is, in fact a great President, right up there with Kennedy, Reagan, Lincoln, and Roosevelt. Why?
Because, like those Gentlemen, he loves America.
Seriously Silly Fuzzy Creatures!!
Random Political Thought of the Day!!
Sent this to my beloved but tragically Liberal/Regressive Sister, last night...
OK. Your question was "What has he done for us?" In your case, it is a pleasure to answer that. Mind you, I assess my chances of striking a persuasive note at about a zillion to one against, but the reason that I love you is because you've got a beautiful, thoughtful mind, which matches your beautiful thoughtful Soul. So I can live with a zillion to one.
This is what I've always wanted from my Dream President ~ which'f course's me, but I'm busy:
1 ~ Dramatically reduce Income Taxes. The IRS didn't exist before 1913. We were already the world's greatest power, at that point, without the poisonous, parasitical scum in Washington tithing us. It's a disgusting encroachment on our Freedom and Prosperity.
2 ~ Build up our Military. Fools like to imagine that, if we act real nice, everybody else will act real nice. People with functional brains cannot afford to indulge in that idiotic fantasy. It's possible that humankind will eventually evolve beyond Evil. Until that time, though, it is necessary to arm oneself on a personal and national basis, in order to be prepared to resist murderous, evil scum, like the Chinese, Russian, and Persian Empires...and Antifa!!
3 ~ Bring our Soldiers home. Defend our courageous American Soldiers from senseless and idiotic Wars. Protect them from "Nation Building." No American Soldier should ever be asked to risk its (his/her) Life, except in defense of America. The idea that we can "train" the Afghans or Iraqis in how to build a defensible nation is an insult to them and to us. The only realistic way that we can give our gift of Liberty to other nations is via Leadership By Example, honoring the fact that they must forge their own path, hard to watch though it may be...Presuming to foist our values on others is an insult, makes enemies of those who we would make friends, and consequently put the lives of our Soldiers in tragically needless danger.
4 ~ Defend our jobs, by negotiating fair Trade Deals with other nations.
5 ~ Defend our prosperity, by negotiating fair deals with our NATO allies, who've hitherto been robbing us, and for God's sake, stop giving American Money away to murderous Dictators!!
6 ~ Defend our Soldiers and our Citizens, by cancelling evil compacts such as those negotiated by Obama, that unspeakable scumbag, with Persia and North Korea, and anyone else ~ like China and Russia ~ who previous, gutless Presidents have negotiated unfair deals with.
7 ~ Defend our borders against criminal, alien scum, who murder our citizens.
8 ~ Regulate laws so that Businesses are incentivized to bring our jobs back home, thus dramatically improving the lot of the American Worker.
What has Trump done for us?
All of the above.
He ain't perfect. But nobody since Reagan, Kennedy, and Roosevelt the Great ~ like Trump, Closet Libertarians!!! ~ has done so much for America and Americans.
I didn't vote for Trump. I voted Libertarian.
He had to earn my admiration.
I can understand Liberals. Y'all want to watch out for the other guy. That is commendable. But looking out for the other guy ~ for all of us ~ is precisely what Trump has done.
He sucks at connecting with Liberals. I mean he sucks at it...But y'all're adults, for God's sake.
You say that you've made up your own mind. In your case, I do not doubt that...But it's pretty clear to me, looking back over 50 years of incoming information, that Grade School, College, Movies, TeleVision, et cetera, have all been inundated with Liberal propaganda.
That makes it challenging to think objectively, but think objectively, you must.
Otherwise, we go the way of the French Revolution.
And the French Revolution, for those scoring at home, who haven't researched it as deeply as I have, because they had better things to do...was a spectacular Fail.
SuperStar ~ General Nathanael Greene!!
With all due respect to George Washington, a great American but a vastly overrated General, the American Revolutionary War was won by Nathanael Greene and Daniel Morgan.
From 1776 to 1780, the best that Washington had been able to do against the great resources of the British was a stalemate. There is no shame in that, but he also came perilously close to disaster and annihilation, in the Battle of New York, and in the Battle of Brandywine.
In 1780, the British invaded the Carolinas, scoring enormous victories at Charlestown and at the catastrophic Battle of Camden, against Benjamin Lincoln and Horrible Horatio Gates, respectively. Dixie was laid entirely open to British depredations and conquest.
It was then that Greene & Morgan came to the rescue. They reorganized the remnants of our shattered Army, coordinated with local Militias, and reconfigured our Southern Strategy dramatically, transitioning into Gorilla Warfare. They wore the Brits down...and out.
Greene and Morgan took command of the Dixie Army's shattered remnants in December, 1780.
The Invincible Lord Cornwallis, erstwhile Master of Dixie, surrendered 10 months later.
It was not a coincidence...And the War was over.

President Trump, compared to what the Democratic "leadership" would've done, based on their comments at the time, has done an awesome job of responding to The Chinese Plague.
But compared to what I would've done ~ based on my comments at the time!! ~ he, along with the rest of the government, and along with most State Governors, has done an horrifically terrible job, because he listened to idiots like Doctor Fauci, who insist on shutting everything down, rather than listen to what I've been saying since a month before this hit:
1 ~ It spreads too easily for any attempt to stop it completely to have a realistic chance.
2 ~ It's mortality rate is extremely low, comparable to the flu, for God's sake.
3 ~ We could save more lives by focusing our resources on the vulnerable.
4 ~ If we had let it run its course, we'd have Herd Immunity by now.
The Great Barrington Declaration?
It's what I've been saying all along.
FootBall ~ The Greatest Sport of them All!!
Ahhh...The Great George Carlin, doing nothing less than ushering in the legendary Greatness of Saturday Night Live, in front of a live, late night audience, mind you, on the very dawn ~ as it were ~ if its glorious, inaugural season, on October 11th, 1975, with one of the greatest skits ever performed. I haven't been a Fan of current SNL Crews for more than 30 years, but the original one, with Chevy Chase, John Belushi, Bill Murray, et cetera, was magnificent.
October 11th, 1975, ironically, was the same day that kicked off the 1975 World Series, one of the best ever played, between the Big Red Machine and those colossal underdogs, my beloved Red Sox, who came within an ace of pulling off a miracle upset. And of course the 1975 World Series featured Game 6 and Fisk's Home Run, one of the most epic, legendary moments in Sports History...Baseball was still a great game in 1975, and I was obsessed with it for many years, all the way until those scum betrayed us by murdering the 1994 season in August.
Baseball lost its Soul, that year.
Yet until 1994, it was a great game.
But everything that Carlin said was true: FootBall speaks to America's Soul.
Working together to achieve measurable goals.
And there's something else: Advancing down field, using power, speed, tactics, and teamwork, in direct combat with one's foe, employing a combination of Trench Warfare, Combat Skills, Fire Power, BlitzKrieg, and Air Assault, simulates actual Warfare in a savage, satisfying way.
FootBall ~ American FootBall, not to be confused with what I prefer to call European FootBall, as "Association" FootBall or "Soccer", for short, are odd names ~ is the greatest Sport of all!
Food!! Lobster Newburg!!
Many Earthlings are aware that Lobster is the greatest food of them all.
But many are ~ as I for many years was ~ unaware of the best Lobster dish of'm all!
Sitting down with Lobster and drawn butter is awesome, of course.
But nothing captures the rich possibilities of Lobster like this rich, creamy, savory dish:
Here's the Recipe, from A Family Feast, a truly great Site!
Find it. Try it. I beg'f you.
Random Political Thought of the Day
America, this week ~ today ~ is fighting for its very Soul.
The vast majority of Democratic voters are good people who care about others.
The people that Democratic voters put into Power care about nobody.
They manipulate voters. They tell lies ~ outrageous lies.
And now they are trying to murder the truth. Joe Biden is an evil, corrupt Traitor.
Everybody knows it. A vote for him is a vote for Tyranny.
FaceBook and Twitter are his staunch allies.
But there is hope: They're being called out.
