Re.:And it will never stop,I will destroy Robert
Frank’s life . . . it will never stop.--- Don Imus
Now that you
have started to learn the truth about Don Imus perhaps you can benefit from my experience.
I invite you
to visit NewRuskinCollege.com to learn how Don Imus used his influence to destroy my life.In a few weeks I will commit suicide in protest of Don Imus and the others who have oppressed me for these last fourteen
years.(Yes, fourteen years.When
he says it will never stop he means that it will never stop.He will use his
influence and power to destroy your life.)It will not stop.
that I too want to live.Even though I have been pushed to the very limits of
society, oppressed, driven into poverty, still, in the morning, the sunrise is so beautiful my heart rejoices.As my time runs out the sun has been racing through the sky.
Life has resolved
itself into a granular or cellular structure.My alienation is now so complete
that I no longer live in a world of isolated individuals, but they themselves have devolved into isolated moments in time.People appear in a bewildering array of personalities minute by minute, seemingly
talking gibberish and no one else seems to notice.
For example it
started with me noticing intellectual inconsistencies.Tax shelters for the rich
for example: The Gallo Brother’s Wine Institute or the Imus ranch.And of course Imus is so vain he does not see the larger issues.That anyone should question whether a wasted wizened old man and his young deranged wife should be allowed
to shelter millions of dollars in an enterprise that would not exist except for our tax laws, never
once occurs to him.
we allow a degenerate old druggy to decide how our tax dollars are spent?It
is futile to point out that the money thus sheltered means that the rest of the people will now have to pay more.And who are they?The
ones with the lowest ability to raise their prices;the highest “propensity
to spend.”But in this idiocy Imus is in no way exceptional. (Senate Finance
Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) said:“In exchange for these
very generous tax breaks, charitable assets should be going to those in need. More and more, we're seeing that some people
view charities and charitable gifts as a chance to help themselves, not others.What's
going on isn't a pretty picture in the harsh light.”Acknowledging that
“our enforcement presence faded in the late 1990s,” (Boy! Did it!How
about completely sold out and corrupted by the very corporate entities the IRS and the
Senate were supposed to be overseeing?Would you say that Mr. Grassley? )and "weak governance practices.”)
“conservatives” who previously condemned “junk science” presented the obviously, and self admitted
religiously biased, “doctors” culled from across the country, as
representing “main stream scientific consensus” when they in fact knew that the consensus was just the opposite.
It was an intellectual betrayal.
One minute they
say one thing then in the next breath they contradict themselves . . . And you
may be thinking ‘Well, come on, everyone has their limitations, different perspectives, how do you go from this to the
complete disintegration of reason . . . the impossibility of communication . . . utter hopelessness?’
It is said that
Ted Kaczynski was the subject of a psychological experiment when he was at Harvard.They wanted to find out what would happen to the subject if you deliberately denied everything.They found out.The survivors of the Soviet Prisons said that
the worst of it was that they were housed with the lunatics, and diagnosed as being insane.After a while, they began to wonder . . .
But this is what
I am trying to tell you, this is my warning, this is what happens to you when they start in on you.First you will think, “coincidence.”You
will receive a letter from your sister, or a friend, someone you trust absolutely.And
then Imus will repeat a phrase from the letter word for word.Coincidence.Then Michael Weiner will start reading from a notebook that you have left at home,
or on a car seat, or in a motel room.Then you editor will hand back a story
you have written and tell you to rewrite it.But then driving home, only an hour
later, someone else on the radio will talk about having to “rewrite” and how editors do not know how to tell reporters
when they are in trouble and about to be fired.
And right now
you think:paranoia.Yes!Exactly!You will never know!Don’t you see?Once they start in on you, your wife?Can you trust your wife?Then what? A marriage counselor?Garrison Keillor?Rush Limbaugh?Your employer?Co-workers, for example?You go to lunch and when you get back to the
office your brief case has been moved, opened?The secretary nods affirmatively
to your co-worker’s questioning glance that you catch just out of the corner of your eye.They went through my briefcase?Then Imus reads something
you emailed your editor.
Right now you
might think that there are limits.You may work for a prestigious newspaper,
or you are well to do,you think you have friends, or perhaps you simply think
that you live in a nation where the ‘rule of law’ is respected.Is
that what you think?
Orperhaps you are thinking that your colleagues, friends, family, or even just people generally, your fellow
citizens, will not allow you to be targeted in this way. You may think,
‘This is America,there is justice.’What you do not yet understand is that they will
all join in. It will become a kind of game for them. This is what I meant about the granular structure of their personalities.They can not be trusted.They will betray you on questions
of economics and medicine?If they will not accept an EEG or a CAT
scan then how can you trust them on such trivial questions such as your oppression, the theft of your papers, etc. ,etc.?
Right now you
think you can trust them.There is Truth.Justice?You trust in good faith.Take this letter as a warning:One, it will not stop, Two, no one will
Over the years
many people have commented on my situation.They wanted me to know that they
knew about Don Imus and Michael Weiner,Mrs. Jack Swanson, Ron Owens, Michael
Krasney.Part of the game for them was that I should know that they knew.Do you see?They wanted me to know:

The Culture of Life
Oh, I get it.This is just your way to drive me off the edge!Boy!You guys!You really
had me going there.
But you don’t
have to do all that.I am going to kill my self.Just a few weeks now.
I know some of you
had access to my credit card data, (remember Bo Dietl released Mr. Benedict P.
Morelli’s client’s credit history? (well they did the same to me, (didn’t they Garrison?))),so I suppose you have access to my bank information.As you
can see the money is almost gone.
Then me too.
Good bye, in case we don’t
So really there is no
need for all this.I’m going.I’m
Then I think . . . no,
they really do not see themselves.They really do not know how phony they are
. . . or, how phony they appear . . . give them the benefit of the doubt.
You see when you take
up the moralist’s pose over Schiavo’s bed.You know, you condemn
everyone else as being part of the “culture of death;”that whole
routine of yours.
Right?You know when you claim a profound respect for the dignity of every human being, innate worth, unconditional
love for all man kind, that whole routine you have developed? Right?What “quality of life” issue?You know when you pick up your voice to that shrill pitch of self-righteousness?
You know how you do that.
And then when it is pointed
out to you that thousands of patients a day, not all in PVS, but literally thousands of patients and doctors and families
a day have to face up to the question of when to stop treating a hopeless case . . .
Oh, well, of course,you say,but . . . in this case . . .
that husband of hers . . .
You do see that don’t
you?The sleight of hand.You
have just shifted the debate?You see that don’t you? Tell me you know what you are doing.Please?
You could have held your
position and I would have come to you.In Tibet
when they start a construction project, before they start digging the foundation, they get down on all fours and pick the
worms out of the soil.They do not want to hurt them.
So for me, unlike the
liberals,I would not smirk at your religiosity.The liberals will accept the most bizarre religious practices from little brown men, especially little brown men from
Asia.Especially the liberal women, they are hot for the
little brown men from Asia.(Go figure.)
But let some Mormon, or
Southern Baptist, or Catholic set up some religious condition and they are all over it with sarc I, II, III
and more.See, White religious people are not allowed to have religious doctrines?
But I am not one ofthem liberals.
If you had wanted
to set it up that we did not give up on anyone I would help you organize it.Calculate
how many hospital beds, how many nurses, how much money.It wouldn’t really
be that much more.Right now something like50% of all US health dollars are spent on the last
six months of life. (http://www.bioethics.umn.edu/resources/topics/end_of_life.shtml#fact)
So what the. . .
You see as a conservative
I was willing to accept your religious doctrine.And unlike Justice O’Conner
I do not say your religious principles do not have a place in our law.They do.Remember me?I am the one shouting“Bravo!”Have I not always
encouraged you?Am I not the one who said that if you do not hold “the
good” as good, then there is no good?
But that is just the problem
isn’t it?For when questioned you backed down.
You all say“. . . . well . . . but in this. . . case . . . her
husband . . . ?”
You know?Then your voice starts to trail off. . . .you know that thing you do with your voice when you are backing down . . .?
What happened to “kill”?You xxxxxxxx
What are you doing?
Counselor:I’m not going to let you talk like that.
So what happened,you, . . . what happened to “kill”?“Judicial homicide”?“State sanctioned murder”?You said all of that. (Note Dr. Edel, your patients came to us. )
You cowards.When challenged you changed the subject.And all of you.Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck,Rush
Limbaugh,Michael Weiner (who persuaded his first wife to have two, not one,
but two, abortions), Bill Kristol, Fred Barnes, Tucker Carlson, everyone of you, when challenged, backed down.
All this talk about how
you stand for “the culture of life” and everyone who disagrees with you stands for the “culture of death”turns out on just the most cursory of examinations, what little you allow in a phone
call,to be hollow, insubstantial, phony.
For on reflection we discover
that “the culture of life” also recognizes that life support can be, even should be, stopped in hopeless cases.
All of this multi-year
vulgarity has , it turns out, been
hype, overstatement, gross overstatement, phony.
What were at first described
as “absolute religious convictions” turn out to be, on sober examination (i.e. without the vulgar emotionalism),
contingent, even limited to just this one case:the patient Schiavo.
If your statements
were limited to this one case how did you get to “the culture of life versus the culture of death”?I will tell you how.Because you are egotistical, self satisfied hypocrites.
For example, couldn’t
your opponents have been – just - wrong about the facts of this one case and yet still not be part of the “culture
Indeed, what if
you were wrong?What if the patient Schiavo died years ago?
But in either case, because
now on reflection, you must agree that you are not opposed to the withdrawal of life support from hopeless cases,it is not an absolute, then the only other general subjects
for us to discuss are the general topics of when and how, etc.
What should the rule be
for determining the wishes of the patient?What is your proposal?For example, where is your model statute?”
Wait -------let me guess?You do not have a
model statute do you!I knew it!Phony,
Phony, phony hypocrites.
“Anyone who is trying
to do good will always be open to the charge of hypocrisy.’ ---- Glenn Beck.
No! Phony hypocrite.Not anyone.Just those who carry on for
years about how “every life is precious to me,”“who can say
what makes a life worth living,”“Oh, how can you judge the ‘quality
of life’ of another of God’s sacred human beings?Our Brother?!”
And then . . . (I
kid you not) . . . and then this sack of shit, this hypocrite on steroids, this low life piece of garbage, (who, whenever
he is challenged immediately resorts to ‘Oh, I’m just a recovering alcoholic,’ or ‘I’m just
a former drug addict’, and in this way escapes all responsibility);this
radio detritus,then every Friday ridicules the “kids wearing the helmets
in the back of the short busses,”and calls convenience stores to ridicule
the clerks there.
(See?This “recovering alcoholic” is a Yale drop out.Like
a character out of‘I am Charlotte Simmons’ he has it made, he was
accepted to Yale.So now it does not matter what he does, drugs, alcohol, playing
songs about the kids in the back of the short busses with helmets on their heads, prank calls to convenience stores, smarmy segues from Jesus to commercials (wink, wink, ‘don’t think I take
this Jesus stuff too seriously,’ wink, wink), --- see? --- he was
accepted to Yale.He is smart.)
And then he goes on the
air and makes out like the righteous over the bed of the patient Schiavo.(He
must see what he is?Or is he like Weiner?Completely lost?)
even begin to cover it.
Carlson asked “Well
if you are right and she (the patient Schiavo) is already gone then how can she suffer any ‘indignity’?I mean if she is already dead what difference does it make?”(. . . if we keep her body functioning.)
So in the middle of this
discussion of life support and its removal, Tucker Carlson suddenly wants to take up the Ancient Roman Law of Estate?What, are we going to go back and follow
the Etruscan ideas of theology, the role of the father in the governance of society, pater familias, the
development of Roman Law and the right of the Estate to the status of legal entity?Shall we consider the theological implications especially with respect to Jesus and the idea of the immortal soul?Shall we see here, (note this Justice O’Conner) that the theological idea of
ancestor worship developed into the modern idea of inheritance and estate?
Tucker Carlson was just
rambling.He did not want
to discuss any of this.
Laura Ingraham made out,(ah, poor choice of words), set out that she was really only interested in examining“how the patient’s intentions should be determined in the absence of documentary
You have yet to examine
this general topic.Law degree?University
education from Dartmouth?Years of
experience?Nothing, for all the good it does us.No model statute, no instructions for the judges, no method of determining the patient’s wishes.Nothing, but emotionalism, self-righteous indignation, phony posturing about being the soledefender of “the culture of life”.
And what of Bill
Kristol’s “killing”?So if discontinuing life support for the
hopeless patient is “killing” what words shall we use when we discuss agency in termination of life?Euthanasia?Is Mr. Kristol capable of distinguishing between
the two cases?Yes and no.He can
but does not want to; he prefers to posture.
But let us have
no talk about trying to advance the public’s understanding.
And Rush Limbaugh makes
no such claim.He bloviates this way and that and then takes another commercial
break.He has nothing to say either on this particular case or on the general
question, but of course he wants to posture too.
But Sean Hannity is the
worst, because the dumbest.He tried to take up “the culture of life”
versus “Culture of Death”, but because he is so inarticulate that
when challenged he had to revert to “well I wasn’t there and neither were you, but the nurses say that he tried
to kill his wife . . .but I’m not even going to go there . . . but they
say he tried to kill his wife . . .”A bigger ass could not be imagined.Well yes there is always Michael Weiner, but he is so contemptible that he does not
Hey, Sean, tell
the class the most common origin of eating disorders for American women?No?Laura Ingraham?Would you like to explain
to the class the most common cause of eating disorders in American women?From
whom do children learn their obsessive compulsive behaviors ?Especially the
right we do not talk about that.
But we do talk about the
nurses who say they heard the patient Schiavo say . . . and even just last week the family told us that they heard her say
“I want to live .”
Now class the brain has been well mapped and we know where language, and cognition for language formation occur.Class?Would anyone care to point to
the portion of the patient Schiavo’s brain scan to indicate in which portion of the brain the language centers are located?
No?And we do not want to discuss the CAT scan at all do we?Glenn Beck even claimed that there had been no CAT scan.(Even the author of “the Culture of Death”, Wesley J. Smith, on KSFO, did not bother to review
the CAT scan or the EEG (which was flat) for the patient Schiavo even though he claimed
to have spent years of work on this particular case.So what then?We are not going to discuss either the general or the specific? Exactly.
Posture. Yes, all day long, in long emotional tirades.But as for informing the
public.Drop dead.Ah, the culture
of life.This is what you claim for yourselves.Utterly without shame.Hypocrites.
He claimed to be
a medical ethicist?How can you be an ethicist and yet not talk about the medical
findings?Then I realized.He is
an ethicist, who talks about medicine.But he does not have to actually know
anything about medicine.His wife, the columnist Debra Saunders, appearing on
the David Gold show, said though she had followed the story “for years” she did not bother to acquaint herself
with the medical findings or the medical consensus. You can be a San Francisco
columnist without actually knowing anything.For in the post liberal Bay Area,
to be a columnist, connections are more important than reporting.)
We do not want to
discuss the findings of the last court appointed guardian examiner, Dr. Wolfson?
Dr. Jay Wolfson:
I was appointed
by the judiciary, according to the requirement of the law for a special guardian to investigate Terri's swallowing capacity.
This opened the door to issues relating to her neurological capacity. I was required to review and report on the previous
14 years of legal and medical evidence and activities. After spending hours with Terri, getting to know her parents and siblings
and her husband, and reviewing all of the evidence, my conclusion was that the competent medical evidence provided in the
the case, following the Florida rules of civil procedure and evidence, and according to the Guardianship law in Florida, which
was carefully crafted over fifteen years of bipartisan political and religious efforts --- indicated by clear and convincing
evidence that she was in a persistent vegetative state, according to the most credible science and medicine. I also concluded
that based on the same Florida laws and rules, the trier of fact appropriately determined that Terri had expressed, while
she was competent, the intention never to be kept artificially alive under such circumstances. The evidence supporting this
included competent legal evidence demonstrating that she personally expressed those intentions at the funerals of two family
members who had been on life support -- so it was contextual. Due to the conflict between the parties, I suggested that additional
testing could and should be done but ONLY if the parties agreed in advance as to how the results would be used. We almost
came to agreement on this option, but for legal reasons, one of the parties pulled out on the last minute. (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/articles/A57781-2005Mar22.html)
We do not want to discuss
the consensus of the medical and scientific community?(We always want to misrepresent
this by claiming that there are “differing views” or that medical opinion is “split”which are, each of them, a misrepresentation?A lie.(The overwhelming consensus is that the patient Schiavo is dead, though her heart
and lungs continued on for years after her death thanks to life support.))
No it does not matter
if we look at the general questions or the questions specific to this one case.You
are phony from beginning to end.
But now tell me the truth,
you have just been putting me on right?You have been trying to drive me crazy.
Make me think that I am
living with a bunch of mindless zombies?
Right?It has been a put on?

every person alive no matter that their brain has liquefied?Why the great fat
man assured us,‘everyone in America
is guaranteed medical treatment there is “a law.”’
Oh, a law is it?You see how simple political commentary is?No need to deal with facts, funding, questions of equity.All one has
to do is define away the problem.No health funding problem.Everyone in America has health care, there
is “a law.”
Miss. Laura did
admit that there was “some brain damage;”this only after our last
The brain is missing.
Sussman, who previously
advocated “objectivity”, ( after I posted ‘Wrong’ an article on objectivity (see Max Weber Institute),
at that time he was trying to ingratiate himself to the boss’ wife, Mrs. Jack Swanson), now however, he no longer is
concerned with “objective” findings.He claims that the expert opinion
is equally divided “on both sides.”Sides?He thinks there are sides.There is another lie here
of course.There is not an equal division of opinion.
reasons Sussman is misrepresenting the facts.He is too dishonest to simply
say that he has a religious prejudice.His dishonesty drives him to pretend,
to fake scientific reasoning.But he is a liar.He is not impartially collecting facts.He is a liar.As with all egotists he can not accept the limit of truth on his willful desires.
These liars could
simply state their religious views and be honest, but they prefer to tell lies;they
think they gain some kind of advantage.They imagine they are not seen for the
liars that they are.But note he still will say that he believes in “objectivity.”
Soin the end he himself provides us with the proof of the absence of objectivity in our lives.For example heintroduced the fraud Hammesfahr as a “Nobel
Prize nominee.”(He claims his congressman sent a letter to the Nobel
committee.)Sussman knows that this constant association of this quack with the
Nobel Prize is a cheap hucksters trick to fool the gullible.He knows he is a
that I have been driven to my death by such patently obvious liars and scoundrels.Such
is the power of the ABC and PBS networks that even mental midgets like Sussman can destroy a man. Interestingly enough
Sussman has described his father as a Jewish Mafioso from Chicago, involved in
operating ghetto liquor stores.He grew up thinking his father was in the wholesale
liquor business not discovering the truth until he was in college.In adulthood
he is still clueless, continuing to live out the values he learned from the gangster his father. In the end the worms are victorious.)
claim that the Terri Schiavo could speak was not questioned by Sussman.Sussman
went so far as to make up a new claim that the patient was in a “speech therapy program.”Can Sussman identify the regions of the brain that control speech?Can he find these regions in the CAT scan of the patient’s brain?What happened to “objectivity?Hypocrite?
Sussman also failed to
ask Hammesfahr about the report that:“In February 2003, the Florida
Board of Medicine ruledthat he violated state law by charging a patient for services that were not
provided (Finding of Fact No. 71, PDF p. 40). The board fined Hammesfahr $2,000, placed him on probation for six months, and
ordered him to pay approximately $52,000 in administrative costs and to perform 100 hours of community service. While the
board also ruled that Hammesfahr's treatment of stroke patients, using a procedure he has claimed could help Terri Schiavo,
was "not within the generally accepted standard of care" (Finding of Fact No. 55, PDF p. 33), . . .”---- Media Matters (http://mediamatters.org/items/200503220002 )
And none of this
is even the half of it.Mrs. Jack Swanson, who boasts of herself “oh, I’m
vicious,” pretends concern for Terri Schiavo’s life, which is only another in a long line of lies.(Such people!How horrible.)
For years she used
her influence to destroy a man’s life, even boasting, “Oh, I’m vicious,”and now she claims an unlimited compassion for human life, even when confronted with proof that Terri’s
life ended long ago.
She knows that the
brain is the seat of human consciousness but she wills herself to ignore the evidence because the egotist can accept no limits
on itself.No limits of morality, nor reason, nor death.For the egotist death is the ultimate proof of its insubstantiality.Therefore the association of the egotist with religious doctrines that promise “eternal” life in the hereafter.An egotistically satisfying, if monotonous, continuation of mememememe.
of eternal life requires one to psychologically turn around.To identify not
with the limited ego, or this limited body, the self, but to turn towards humanity and identify with the larger world, outside
the self, as the old Jewish saying has it:Life is with the people.
Don Imus, who encouraged
Mrs. Jack Swanson to harasse and oppress me for years and who carried out his own program of harassment and oppression,
said today:“I’m not a bad person . . .”Such horrible liars.
I have been brought
down by a pack of dogs.

CULTURE OF LIFE? CULTURE OF LIARS!
HATE RADIO TALK SHOW HOST'S BRAIN
Hate Radio Talk Show Host’s
You see they are for the
“culture of life” and their opponents are for the “culture of death.”
You might think,
‘No, they are just arguing with strawmen again!’ and you would be correct.
Several callers trapped
Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity into acknowledging that they had been evading the real issue.Everyone, it was finally revealed, agrees that if the person is dead their body should not be kept “alive”,
merely functioning, kept on the air as a Hate Radio Talk Show Host for example.We
should “pull the plug”rather than have their ignorance and pomposity
and arrogance, their fat relentless egos, running on and on interminably.When
forced to discuss the actual issue raised by the instant case both Beck and Hannity did finally agree that they also believe
that when a patient is pronounced dead the body should not be kept alive artificially.
For it is not just
hatred which is poured out hour after hour, hatred for everyone who disagrees with them, the “judges,” the legislature,
the over 60% who do not want the issue politicized; for mainly we are witnessing ignorance of a very willful and deliberate
Sadly this kind of willful
ignorance is often confused with “religion.”
They were told, for example,
that if they believed in Christ they would have eternal life.So they will themselves to believe in Christ, as an act of their egos.But their understanding of “eternal life” is merely of the continuation of the small, selfish, ignorant
ego that they have known all their lives.They imagine eternal life as a continuation
of their egos on into eternity, a base projection of their puny neurotic lives.
So Laura Ingraham describes
herself as “livid” and so “upset” that she can not read her own script.We educate her at Dartmouth, including a law degree, and this
is what we get and emotionally distraught little girl, so afraid of death, that she is incapable of reviewing the law, let
alone the philosophy of the various positions, to say nothing of being incapable of displaying any evidence of a religious
education.We were not surprised that Rush Limbaugh should fulminate against
the courts and judges who “allowed hearsay evidence” apparently unaware that it was the State Legislature of Florida
which specifically provided that in the absence of any writings oral evidence
could be considered.But we expected more of Ingraham.
Hannity put on a known
quack and introduced him as a Nobel Prize “nominee”,you know, like
with the Oscars?(A congressman “nominated” the quack.(A Republican no doubt, God help us.)) But we have to tune into Randi Rhodes Show tofind out that
the “doctor’s” evidence had been considered by the courts and exposed for the fraud that it was.No published studies.No peer review ---- well no peer review
of any studies, but the fraud’s claims, his suspicious testimony has been reviewed by the medical and scientific community,
and he has been shown to be a liar.
But we have to find out
about this doctor imposter, (Dr. Hammesfahr by name (http://www.newshounds.us/2005/03/22/sean_hannity_misrepresents_doctor_in_schiavo_case.php )), about the CAT
scan, about the rulings from courts that have reviewed this evidence for some 15 years from Randi Rhodes?How shameful.Not just a competitor but a liberal!To find out the facts we have to tune into a liberal?We used
to turn to the conservatives to find out the truth!What a disgrace.How shameful.
And why?Because these small minded hypocrites feel it is their “religious” duty to lie to us.Beck and Hannity were forced by their callers to admit that they too feel that when
a patient is pronounced dead they should be allowed to die.Ingraham and Limbaugh
are so dishonest they would not discuss the real fundamental issue behind this instant case.
Weiner of course is insane.He was wildly recalling his brother’s murder in a “home” an “institution.”And again, surprise!, everyone who disagreed with him were all NAZIS.O’Reilly could not make up his mind, but he was concerned that tax dollars were being spent to keep
Terri alive.(At least he is consistent.The others say they do not believe in medical care for the poor, however, when confronted with Terri they break down
in emotionalism imagining themselves as the last defenders of the “culture of life.”Once again hypocrites hardly covers their dishonesty. Which
is it?Do you believe in guaranteed medical care paid for by tax dollars, or
not? (http://www.kansascity.com/mld/kansascity/business/11213910.htm)Answer the question, or, or, we will pull your plug.(Turn
off the radio.)They are so dishonest they will not say.Willful ignorance.Hundreds of patients a day face these very
same issues.(http://www.xenos.org/ministries/crossroads/donal/pvs.htm#Note9#Note9) But the Hate Radio Host, the carnival barkers are so dishonest, they will not address even this obvious
and mundane issue.This is why they are called hucksters. Examine the issues?It might interfere with their ratings.)
But the saddest case is
Ingraham.Pitifully claiming to support the “culture of life” against
her strawmen opponents:the “culture of death.”Really.Laura, where are your children?The biological clock is running.No adoption?Culture of life?Where is it?You have squandered your life.First and most obviously you are unprepared
to layout the moral and ethical issues for your audience.You are too “livid.”For example, what about a statute that sets up the presumption that no one would want
to be kept plugged in, on the air, after their brain has stopped working?
Lee Rodgers was
close to winning the prize for most pathetic.“Any person of conscience
. . .”He actually said this.He
knows how Mrs. Jack Swanson, Don Imus, Michael Weiner,Michael Krasney, he knows
about all of them, how they have conspired, how they burglarized my rooms, followed me from job to job,. . . culture of life?Conscience?Hypocrites and liars.
Then in the next
breath Rodgers said he hoped he could “pull the plug” on one of the
many doctors who disagreed with him and had determined that the patient had died years ago.But he has no sense of his gross dishonesty.His ego is such that even
when he directly contradicts himself, he still thinks he is right!
Before I could not
understand how they could use their influence to oppress me, to follow me from
place to place, over all these years, and still make claims to honor and honesty.I
thought it was just me.They were blind to their cruelty to me.But now with this issue we can see that this is how they are about everything.They are blind to their dishonesty, even seeing it as “religious” duty!This is the fat relentless ego on radio.

That a MRI
would give a better structural picture of a Radio Talk Show Host’s brain does not at all mean that the existing CAT
allows one, if you are sufficiently familiar with brains and brain images, to see how severely the brain in the pictured CAT
scan is damaged.( The MRI
was not possible because of the electrodes implanted in the brain in a futile attempt to “stimulate” the damaged
brain would interfere with the MRI.)
This single image shows
a very severely damaged brain. The large “blue blobs” in the middle are ventricles, also present in healthy brains
(you can see the two little dark crescent shapes in the brain on the right) that have expanded to such a large size because
the overall brain volume is so low.
The cranial space that
would have been filled by the “gray matter”, neurons, is now filled with cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). And the surrounding blue space is cerebrospinal fluid that
is filling up space left behind after the necrotic brain tissue, which has been scavenged and removed by the body.
The white squiggly things
are “white matter”, the connective tracts that have the loose uncoiled look about them, because, again, the “grey matter” which once compressed them is no longer there, so they are
left to “float” loosely in CSF.
All of this, the gigantic
ventricles, expanded white matter, and undifferentiated blue space in that scan all point to the same inescapable conclusion:
massive loss of grey matter in the cerebral cortex. You don’t need an MRI to tell
you that, it’s clearly visible in this devastatingly clear CAT scan.
It is true that given
the poor resolution of this image, it’s possible that some cortical tissue has been spared. But that doesn’t alter
our conclusion. Whatever wisps of cortex we might be missing in this image, (located as they are down at the base of the scull),
are not enough to sustain behaviors that could differentiate the Radio Talk Show
Host’s Brain from any other vertebrate.
All the neural equipment
you need to do ocular following and emotional responses is subcortical.The whole
of that portion of the brain needed to be a self-aware, to reason, to be what
we mean when we say “human being” is cortical, and is here shown to be missing in a typical Radio Talk Show Host’s
brain. And since I understand that this image was made some time ago, the present condition of the brain can only be worse.
There is no way
any qualified doctor or scientist could look at this image and suggest that significant recovery of brain function is possible.
The fact that we could have all this discussion on the subject is a triumph of politics over science, base pandering emotion
and appeal to ignorance over reason. Tragic for Terri Schiavo, and really for us all.
From post by Cerebrocrat
:Cerebocrat CV:I AM a recent behavioral
neuroscience PhD, a research fellow in a neurophysiology lab at a major institution, and I took clinical neuroanatomy in the
medical school of my graduate institution as part of my coursework; neurology rounds and clinical evaluations of CAT
and MRI scans were part of the curriculum. In addition, the jewel in the crown of my graduate
program was a research-dedicated MRI, which meant that many of my peers did imaging work
and I had to sit through countless (zzzzzzz) departmental colloquia featuring functional brain imaging. So, no argument from
me - I am not the most qualified person to evaluate Terri Schiavo’s status from one small CAT
picture on the web; that would be someone who evaluates scans professionally (or at least, regularly). But part of the point
of my post was that I don’t have to be - I know how brains work (I mean, up to a point, obviously), I know what healthy
ones and sick ones look like, and I know what I’m looking at when I look at a brain image. Schiavo’s damage is
so severe that it doesn’t take an *expert’s* eye, but merely an *educated* eye, to understand the basics of her
status. That’s why I’m so amazed that her prognosis is being discussed as if it were controversial.

George Eliot, Middlemarch
Gypsies for Free enterprise!
show why they are a permanent minority party.
Faced with the most restrictive
zoning practices in the free world the people of Britain seek
to build their own homes on their own land even though they must do so without
zoning approval from the government.The buyers,called ‘travelers’ by the British, purchase “greenbelt” land and then install a factory built
home such as this one which is manufactured in Britain.
Gypsise for Free Enterprise
Photo is Link
But note that the British
Conservatives do not even question the government interference in the housing sector of the economy. They do not point out that greenbelt development is the natural consequence of the government’s restrictive
zoning practices.Rather than siding with the people the British Conservatives
side with the restrictive zoning.
This is why they are called
Tories.But this comes as no surprise.For centuries the Tories profited from Royal monopolies and had no use for free enterprise; and still appear to have no use for free enterprise, or free markets, or for freedom at all.
See how the modern
state’s oppression of the people harkens back to the age of royal oppression.Formerly dukes and duchesses lived off the people, who were not allowed to own the land, and now the modern state bureaucrats
replace the old landed aristocracy and administer their former lands as “greenbelts”.The more things change the more they stay the same.
The alternatives ought
not be limited to unauthorized building on the greenbelt or going homeless.Why
must we be limited to thesefalse alternatives?Why can’t the Conservatives stand for greenbelts and housing too?
But rather than side with
the people against the restrictive, oppressive government, side with free enterprise over and against state control, the Conservatives
openly rail against “gypsies” rather than against the government restrictions on development.For example why does the government not allow development within cities and towns?
on the housing market even within existing cities and towns is the cause of the unauthorized development.In London
building height limits prevent development because personages such as for example, the Prince of Wales, do not like tall buildings.This is the same Prince of Wales who recently released a guide to “alternative
health care,”you know, palm readers, aura readers, aroma therapists.
And again see how Britain’s
ancient traditions tie into the new increasingly authoritarian state, with court astrologers advising the government on the
Feng Shui of tall apartment buildings, and who should be granted a Royal Patent to build a bungalow.
To repeat the point:government edicts are not responsive to changing market conditions.Every day the market economy asks all the consumers:“Now
comrade tell me,what do you really think?”But should the height restriction in the West End be the same today that it was last year?Have the town councils of Surrey and Kent taken into account
the needs for housing in all of England? All of Britain? Have they thought about the people of Liverpool and Glasgow?
And day by day the politicians
and their bureaucrats go about their routines unaware of the changing demands
of the consumers because they are insolated from the market.They claim they
are constantly reviewing their zoning restrictions but are they? How would we
The free market reexamines itself not every
ten years, not every other year, not quarterly, not weekly, but every minute.And
the reexamination is not conducted by a former solicitor who meets occasionally with the likes of the Prince of Wales for
"advice", but by every consumer and producer.
And unlike the former
solicitor and his bureaucrats, these consumers and producers are spending their own money.They may be mistaken in their views but at least we do not have to be concerned whether they are lying to us.But what do we know about these government men?
Do they really think all
the land in Britain ought to be greenbelt?If not which acres should be available and which should not?Who
decides?Have they, whoever they are, taken into account the height limit on
apartment buildings in London?
What is the relationship between allowing another 60 feet on building heights and an acre of greenbelt in Surrey
and the availability of housing in Liverpool?Difficult
to say?But this is exactly what markets do;they collect, bring into the discussion, all of these concerns and seemingly unrelated factors, and a great many more
besides, and thereby make economic calculation possible.
When a government
man, Labour or Conservative,says he has considered all these things how do we
know if he has?How much weight was given to the people of Liverpool,
or Glasgow, and how much weight was given to the “concerns” of the
Prince of Wales?This is the problem with government solutions, they are neither
as comprehensive in their scope nor as constant in their reexamination as markets.
Yet do we hear the Conservatives make any of these points, just one of these points?No, they are all "gypsies" and “fair play.”Fair
play?For whom?Because a bare majority
has gotten control of the state, the planning board of Surrey or Kent, that makes it fair? Do the people of Surrey and Kent care about the people of Liverpool and Glasgow?
Are they all part of the same country? I know when Surrey and Kent needed to be defended they were all 'common
bonds', 'one nation', King and Country. But now, after the men of Liverpool and Glasgow have done the dying,
now that they are dead and buried, do the people of Surrey and Kent still concern themselves with their fellow countrymen?
Do they care if they have homes? Really? How can we tell except that the housing is built?
The height limit on buildings in London? Is that fair? Why because powerful people do not want their view
changed? Their views are worth more than housing for the people? The Prince of Wales, is he fair?You think so do you?Maybe you
should have your aura reexamined.
Shadow attorney general
Dominic Grieve said lighter UK
planning restrictions attracted travellers from Ireland.Conservative leader Michael Howard is unveiling plans to make trespass by travellers
a criminal offence.
Lord Falconer responded
saying: "It is not caused by an unexpected increase in the number of gypsies or travellers. It is caused by the fact that
people are developing unauthorisedly in breach of planning law." "What we are talking about here is people who buy land,"
he said. "How can you trespass on your own land?"
Mr Howard says in his
advertisements: "If you want to build a new home you have to get planning permission first. But
if you are a traveller you can bend planning law - building where you like thanks to the Human Rights Act."
On Sunday planning minister
Keith Hill said the Tories were "tapping into the biggest vein of bigotry - prejudice against Gypsies and travellers". But
Gypsy and Traveller Law Reform Coalition coordinator Andrew Ryder said Mr Howard was trying to "surf on the prejudice and
hysteria stoked up" by the media and "score some cheap political points in the run-up to the election".
Lord Chancellor Lord Falconer
also attacked plans to make trespass by travellers a criminal offence as "madcap".Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman
Mark Oaten said the Conservatives were pandering to a mistaken view that the Human Rights Act undermines British culture.

paper no. 1948. Edward L. Glaeser and Joseph Gyourko The Impact of Zoning on Housing Affordability next link
America face an affordable housing crisis and, if so, why? This paper argues that in much of
America the price of housing is quite close to the marginal, physical costs of new construction.
The price of housing is significantly higher than construction costs only in a limited number of areas, such as California and some
eastern cities. In those areas, we argue that high prices have little to do with conventional models with a free market for
land. Instead, our evidence suggests that zoning and other land use controls play the dominant role in making housing expensive.
Bernie Ward?What is it?
Oh, the death of his
father.I should not have ridiculed the sobbing comfort he took from the thought
of the happy hunting ground high up in the cloud regions, where the fat relentless ego can go on and on for all eternity?
I should not have questioned
the ego’s fondest belief and hope;the abstracted ego, isolated from the
world, longing for never ending existence?
Why?Are Bernie Ward’s tears for his father worth more than my tears for my father?Recall that my father died at the end of November 1999, six years ago.Think that has my father’s body lay on this earth awaiting burial my room at the Colonial Motel was broken into
and my notebook was stolen.(see Stolen Notebook at the Moynihan)
My father dead.And Michael Weiner on the radio, laughing, and reading from it.And the following week Mrs. Jack Swanson and Brian Wilson joined in.And the rest, Jim Dunbar, Ted Weygand, Ted Baxter, they all had their jokes about me, and my notebook, . . . . and
my dead father?
Did his corpse figure
in anyone’s thoughts?
And my tears?Did you concern yourselves with them . . . ?
But Bernie Ward’s
tears;Bernie Ward’s grief;Bernie
Ward’s dead father. . .
I wrote Yvonne a note.I had stopped seeing her after Duane Garrett’s death but I occasionally wrote.I accused Michael Weiner of the burglary, as he seemed to have exclusive access to
the material in the stolen notebook the first week after the burglary, with which to torment me in my grief.
And Bernie Ward seemed
to have had something to say to me and my grief, as my dead father lay on this earth awaiting his burial.
Words of comfort?Love and brotherliness? Sympathy? No, no, and no.
“I love it when
conservatives go after each other!” were our theologian’s satisfied words.
Conservatives?Weiner?He is a conservative?
To show you just
how clueless Bernie Ward is, I later wrote another note to Yvonne, and Bernie had something to say about that one too.No one at KGO or KSFO came forward in response to my note to her about the burglary.(see Dear Yvonne, The Love Letters at the Moynihan)
They all made references
to the notes to Yvonne so I am sure she shared the notes with them, as I intended. But
surprise, surprise no one came forward and said, ‘Right, now about that burglary I happen to know that . . .’
I pointed this
out to Yvonne incredulously.Why not?For
example, I wrote, ‘I could not understand why Bernie Ward would protect Michael Weiner?Michael Weiner accused Bernie Ward of molesting children and said that this is why Bernie Ward was no longer a Catholic
The following Sunday
on his God Talk radio show Bernie Ward made an apparent reference to this latest letter to Yvonne at the end of his first
hour he said “When we come back we will take up the ‘M’ word . . .”
He thought this was
a tease. He thought I would tune in to the second hour to see what he was going to say.This was 2000.Before the Farmers, CENCAL, and the GAB incidents, but
after the burglary, after the IRS,
after all the references, the following me from place to place, many flat tires, and of course the KQED show.
At that time, five
years ago, I still thought that someone might still come forward, about the burglary, a felony, about that at least.So I had a keen interest in Bernie Ward.I
was alone against all these powerful people who were harassing me, oppressing me.
And yet, as desperate
as I was, I turned off the radio.Tune into another hour of the idiotic show?Is he nuts?Even as desperate and lonely
as I was I wasn’t going to spend another minute listening to him!
But he, Bernie Ward
thought that was really funny, “. . . we will take up the ‘M’ word . . .” Can you believe it?
His God Talk
show consists of forcing his callers into the little logic boxes he learned from the Jesuits or who ever.Just like on is week night show he sees his job as one of moving the callers through.There is no time for reason, analytic examination.
You either believe
or you do not.There is no persuasion no argumentation.
For example recently
one young caller from San Francisco State called and making reference to the fact that the Democrats control both houses of
the legislature, the Bay Area governments, the congressional delegation, the media, the universities, the whole apparatus
of the state, why then, the young caller guilelesslyasked,“Why don’t we enact a living wage?”
Well why indeed?But Bernie Ward did not have an answer.He
hustled the caller off the show, ‘we have a lot of issues to cover . . .’
Bernie Ward lives in
the bluest counties of the big blue State of California, but for some reason
the liberal agenda never seems to get enacted.Always jam tomorrow never jam
But what could he say?There is no reason involved.He could
not compare California’s economic environment with surrounding states
and consider what affect this added burden would place on California’s
business’ competitiveness.Taking that into account Bernie Ward might have
steered the young caller to consider the other side of the coin, the other side of the economic transaction.
For example even if
we could not risk increasing the minimum wage laws we might create the desired effect by lowering the cost of living.For example take housing as an example Bernie Ward might have reasoned with the young
student.Are there ways we could lower the cost of housing in the Bay Area?
Did the caller know
that the President of San Francisco State had for the last 16 years held a large student dormitory off of the housing market
because he was trying to get the Federal government to give the university more money?Did he or the caller know this?
Bernie Ward did not
ask this question.Did not discuss how the Democrats with their strangle hold
over every level of government over these same sixteen years have steadily down zoned the city of San Francisco and the Bay
Area.How, for example, the building codes also have been used to limit the supply
of housing:the minimum size of a housing unit has steadily been increased, while
the permissible height of buildings has been lowered.
Bernie Ward could have
invited the student to do a “radio” survey of the apartment buildings around San Francisco
and date them.Could have “showed” him how apartment buildings were
built in the 1940s, and 1950s, even a few built in the 1960s, but that then the moratoriums started to strangle the city.Could have contrasted this with Paris,
or Hong Kong, where apartment buildings are still being built to this day.
The student could have
been encouraged to consider if the character of a people can not be seen in their cityscape?Are the cities built for people, with children, families?Or are the cities
built for business, tourism, to increase the city revenues and lower the city’s service costs, so the city can put more
political cronies on the city payroll?
A city for people or
for the politicos who control the city?Whose city is it?
And to show you what
a fool Bernie Ward is, he does not know why his ratings are always so low.Does
not know why his party is losing popularity.Does not know why George Bush won
reelection.Does not know . . .
So, to answer your
question, no.No, I do not think Bernie Ward’s tears for his dead father
are worth more than my tears for my dead father.Tears I shed as Michael Weiner
read from my stolen notebook.And the staff of ABC KGO and KSFO laughed and laughed
. . .
“. . . The advancement
of cultural values, however, seems to become a senseless hustle in the service of worthless, moreover self-contradictory,
and mutually antagonistic ends. . . . . Culture becomes ever more senseless as a locus of imperfection, of injustice, of suffering,of sin, of futility. . . . . And under the very conditions
of 'culture,' senseless death has seemed only to put the decisive stamp upon the senselessness of life itself.”
A car was
found on the OaklandBayBridge
with a flat tire.Abandoned.Later
the owner was found floating in the bay.
It was theorized
that that had been it, the flat tire, that literally pushed him over the edge.
The people on
the radio could hardly restrain themselves.It seemed so amusing to them;that over the edge.
Lieutenant:“Sire,he wants to know if you
are going to make him walk behind your chariot tomorrow when we return to the capital?”
Emperor:“Let him decide.”
We all have our
limits.(But when you have been targeted for a few weeks you start to get sensitive.Then after a few months you become ill tempered.And after a few years distraught.Over a decade withdrawn, isolated, ready
I imagined there
must have been others on the bridge who saw the stranded motorist climb the rail.Did
they report what they saw?Or did they just drive on?And the flat tire . . . was it his first? Or had they
done to him what they have done to me?What they did to Duane Garrett?Had he been followed for months, years, someone sabotaging
his tires?Interfering with his employment?Conniving with his marriage counselor to betray him?Perhaps even repeating
things he had said in private, when no one else was around?
wants to remember the Holocaust because his parents and brothers and sisters were killed.Another man wants to remember the Holocaust because his aunt and uncle and cousins were killed.And another man wants to remember because of all those who were killed.And another person wants the Holocaust remembered so she can park her car in a red no parking zone.”(The leftwing journalist who repeated this line, on the radio, never came forward to give evidence.)
Now when I read
about someone shooting a bunch of people before killing himself, I wonder:What
did they do?Or I read about someone jumping from the bridge, I think, did Ron
Owens or Michael Weiner have anything to do with this too? Is that why the people
on the radio were so amused by “over the edge”?Did they know something?
over the first few years I had thought that someone, some how, justice would be done.Or not.Life goes on.Doesn’t
it?Time will pass.If I only just
stop writing those letters, in time they will forget.But even as slow as I am,
after twelve years you start to see how it is going to be.It must just be me.Perhaps I should have done things differently.The exception that proves the rule?
I see that there is nothing exceptional about it.When I said earlier that I
expected nothing some of you did not believe me.Bernie Ward keeps talking like
he thinks I expect something from him.I do not.Gene Burns has felt compelled to repeat I do not know how many times,“Sometimes
the answer is ‘no.’” One time, immediatley after a posting here,
he actually began a show with that, --- started talking: Sometimes the answer is no.
you guys understand?I gave up on you along time ago.The Last Letter was fourteen years ago.I don’t expect
is the norm.Don’t most people know it already or are they still as I have
been:deluded?Living in a dream world?America.Justice.Freedom.
who do see it?What of them?Can
they see the pitiful nakedness of humanity?And stay sane?
why I do not understand the leftwing hostility to markets.For most people, most
of the time, this is their only connection.Without markets we would have no
connection with one another.But then maybe they are deluded.Do they really think that there is anything else holding most of humanity together?Without markets we would be like the old Soviet Union or China
It may not be
much but it is all we got.And quite a bit of information is conveyed in the
price:The cost of raw materials, labor, shipping, interest rates, taxes, the
ability of entrepreneurs to satisfy consumer’s needs, on and on . . .
There is first
their stomachs.Then their children’s stomachs.Then maybe they think about a spouse.From this core they
reach out into society.The material goods ‘which are indispensable for
all worldly culture’ as Weber put it.The whole of the interaction with
the world, society, is this dollar for that, that for this, and so on.The narrow
horizon of survival.Yet without this, this market, there would be no way for
any interaction.You would let them starve to death, go without homes.Perhaps only those of us who have been truly alienated, destroyed, can see you for what you are, beasts,
isolated in the herd.
Lecture Notes on zoning codes and state interference with the housing market in Boston, New
York, Chicago, San Francisco,
Gene Burns felt compelled to explain that his “libertarianism” was not a “doctrine”.He for one recognized the need for zoning and building regulations to limit the supply of housing.
Yet without the market to inform you, to intermediate between the various people, buyers, sellers, yes, and all
the others, the owners of land who had not thought about it, the builders who were otherwise engaged, the capitalists who
might have invested in Shanghai as the Outer Sunset.
Without the market
how would you know?What other possible way is there to allocate resources, to
intermediate between all these people?Mr. Blair likes to talk about the “third
way.”But this is a mere empty phrase.There is no third way.So far there has been the market which has been
studied intensively for two hundred or so years.There has been the communist
proposal to organize economic activity, but which did not allow for economic calculation, and failed as a result.There has not been a third proposal.
also government interference with the market has driven up the cost of housing in Southern England,
where people want to live, have to live, because close to government, where all the important decisions are made.But this hardly constitutes a third way. Without the market to intermediate between them the British also
each year become more and more estranged from one another, alienated.
The San Francisco
Chronicle explained to its subscribers in a recent editorial that for some reason unknown to the editorialist market forces
have simply stopped working in San Francisco.Everywhere else in the known universe markets work but not here not in housing.There is demand.Last year house prices rose 25%.In one year!25% on a base several times the national average.
the editorialist.There is plenty of capital.Just look at the interest rates.The city has zoned areas for building
the editorialist assured us.Land, capital, labor, materials, and demand, demand,
demand.Fortunes to be made.25%in one year! (And that is not 25%
on the invested amount, that is 25% on the selling price.It might be 50% on
the cost to build the home.On a cash basis, return on actual dollars invested
the return might be more than 1000% in one year!The Mafia does not get that
kind of action!!)But for some unknown
reason . . . no housing.
Bernie Ward also
has no explanation.“I’m just a simple boy from the Sunset,”
he says.Of course the British Prime Minister is clueless too.In Southern England, San Francisco,
Boston, New York, markets have just stopped working.Remarkable.
After his father
died Bernie Ward appeared on his late night radio show, sobbing.“It does
make me feel better,” he moaned, “It does make me feel better. . . (sob) . . . to think of my father in heaven
with my other(sob)family members,
altogether . . . .”
on his Sunday morning show, God Talk, regularly ridicules Americans who have “not continued their religious education
after Sunday School;”Whereas he, Bernie Ward, had graduated from a SeminarySchool he likes to boast.
is his religious education?He believes in the “happy hunting ground”?So when Mr. Ward goes to heaven and embraces his father, what?They will want to embrace for an hour?A day?A year?A million years?A billion years?Eternity?You
are glad to see him but . . .and how old will the gentlemen be?Will Bernie be older than his father?That would be weird.
Did they ruminate
over these issues in the seminary?Workout all the details did they? And what is this but another example of alienation?Religion as another form of alienation.
It is true that Jesus taught that if you believe in him you can find eternal life.But do you suppose He meant you, as an isolated ego, and alienated individual?If you believe in what?A happy hunting ground where all the family
egos get together in and eternal bear hug? The ego in perpetuity?
Jesus taught everlasting
life not by identifying with your limited ego.You find everlasting life in the
body of Christ.This is his body this is his blood.Identify with life.Believe in the life of the world to come.Life is with the people.
Ward has completely missed the point.He has gone in the opposite direction.He identifies with his limited ego.And
those figures immediately around him.Ancestor worship.The eventual reunion of these isolated egos, this family group, in the happy hunting ground.This is primitivism. It is also alienation.
And for him politics
also is like his religion.He believes in things more out of desperation than
due to reasoned argument.He really believes you can have progressive taxation
and make the rich pay more, or ‘their fair share’ as he would put it, without wage and price control.You can explain to him that without wage and price control the rich will simply collect their “fair
share” from the consumers, but it will make no difference to him.He is
not really listening.For him it is not a subject for reason but belief.
he was on the phone with the operator of a ContraCostaCounty soup kitchen, (the Lord’s work), and the budget shortfall of $500,000
was mentioned.‘How could that be?’ asked Bernie Ward.Where, oh where is our common humanity?He did not stop to
reflect that ContraCostaCounty
is a blue county.That it is in a state that has been for years run by Democrats:both houses of the state legislature, the governor’s office until a movie star
recently moved in, also they control the judiciary.
That this party, his party, has controlled the nine counties of the Bay Area for generations, for "hundreds of
years" as Ralph Nader pointed out during his election campaign, does not signify to Bernie.
is in control? His! Whose budget shortfall is it?
His! Being Post Liberal means never having to take responsibility.Then
the soup kitchen operator mentioned that the County’s total budget shortfall
was $50 million.Mr. Ward had nothing to say about this bit of news.
has controlled the San Francisco Bay Area for generations.Has down zoned and
down zoned decade after decade, blocked development of every kind, including housing, managed the schools to ever lower standards,
encouraged workers to abuse the workers compensation system, including a series of retiring police chiefs who have made huge
claims just before retiring, (who will watch the watchers?), torn down freeways, the ones they did not allow to simply fall
down in shambles due to lack of repair, allowed its bridges to deteriorate even faster than its roads, were even then planning
on building the world’s largest single tower self anchored bridge, (Why the world’s largest?Because no one else would dare such a project, especially in a high earthquake zone such as the Bay Area
with its two (2) major faults), and about all of this, and the taxes, and the regulations upon regulations, about all of this
the fat Bernie Ward has absolutely nothing to say.
that there is not going to be a happy hunting ground in heaven for his fat relentless ego.He knows this.He knows his party has controlled the housing, highways
and schools, the taxes, the state, municipal, yes, and the county governments, he knows about the abuse of
the workers comp system, the featherbedding at every level of government, he knows that if his party ever got its hands on
the medical system they would soon set into that like maggots into dead meat, he knows and yet reason can not be applied to
any of this. His belief is religious, i.e. utterly alienated.
He tolerates all
of this, the same way he maintains his belief in the happy hunting ground with his father’s ego traipsing around in
a cloud landscape:He simply wills himself to believe, all evidence to
the contrary not withstanding.
But what is this
but alienation?Alienation from community, from God?Alienation from reason itself.
And you might
say ‘but this isn’t fair, Bernie Ward doesn’t know anything about economics.’This is not fair?OK, Bob Brinker was on the radio condemning
any reduction in benefits for the top 20% of Social Security recipients.A group whose non Social Security income is double (2 times) the national median income.Twice the income of a family that must buy housing at today’s prices, must send
their children to schools, (and miserable schools they are), who must buy everything
at today’s prices unlike the top 20% of Social Security recipients.
Bob Brinker hissed
in his scalding way that “they will have turned all your Social Security contributions into an income tax.”Then he grumbled, “they never saw a tax they did not like.”(“Contributions”?Has
Bob Brinker lost his mind?Contributions?)
perfectly well that nothing has been contributed.All those taxes were spent
on other Social Security recipients, a long time ago, decades ago.Contributions?What a liar.And those taxes were paid when there were still ten, eight,
five tax payers for each recipient.Now we are down to 3.
Limbaugh was on
the radio explaining that “Social Security is not a welfare program.”And
then he repeated that observation a few more times.Then he explained that “Social
Security is a Ponzi scheme.”So what was his point?Not welfare?What is he saying?How does Ponzi scheme aid our understanding?
It is true that
if a private entrepreneur were to put forward a “benefit plan”,a
“retirement plan”, a “savings plan”, in which “contributions”, would be “deposited”,
in a “lock box”, and these “individual accounts”, would be held “in trust accounts”, for
the “beneficiaries”, etc, such as the Social Security System, he would be arrested for fraud.
But why the “not
a welfare program”?Of course it is a welfare program!What point is Mr. Limbaugh trying to make?He has no point.He is not moving his audience to explore some new area, to expand the general understanding.He is not trying to explain anything.“not
a welfare program” are just some words he has strung together.He is making
But then neither
is Mr. Brinker.He knows that the Social Security funds were not invested but
spent.Spent to keep the old out of poverty.A maintenance income for most of them.But not all.
Some Social Security
“beneficiaries” bank their checks.If they did not get the check
they would only be able to take one or two cruises a year instead of the five or six they now enjoy.Their homes, paid for before the real estate bubble, (a bubble their own restrictive growth policies helped
create), would not be manicured twice a week by the illegal Mexican gardeners, (illegals who are in the country because of
the lacks border enforcement that their policies have created).Their children
have grown up in a better country, and gone to better schools, before the education inflation drove colleges out of the reach
of the middle class, schools the 3 workers who must now carry them will never be able to attend, in part because the technology
that might have made continuing education available was not thought important by these now retired community leaders.
Brinker knows that not only are there are no “trust funds” and that their “contributions” have
all been spent, he knows the other side of the coin.He knows that these payroll
deductions are coming from young workers, (only three for each retiree),who
have come under intense competition from Chinese workers and others from around the world.Knows the down word pressure on their wages like at no other time in history.Knows too that the of repeated admonition that these young workers need to get a college education in order to improve
their condition is illusory.Illusory because due to the bell curve distribution
of cognitive ability only the top 16% to 25% of young workers even have a chance.Illusory
too because the cartel operation of the colleges themselves, stifles competition and manipulates prices forcing them ever
higher faster than general inflation, saddling young people with huge cartel created debt, which is not dischargeable
for any reason, not due to unemployment, injury, or even death.
Mr. Brinker knows
all this.Knows the unfairness of making young workers in the bottom 50% of income,
(family incomes under $43,000 a year), pay forretirees with non Social Security
incomes of over $75,000.Knows that these retirees have accumulated their homes,
their accounts, their ease, over many years under far more favorable conditions
than those being experienced by those who must now carry them, the 3 workers, who must struggle under these much more difficult
circumstances, circumstances which themselves result from the failed policies conceived and carried out by these very same
Mr. Brinker knows
these things more clearly than Rush Limbaugh, or Bernie Ward, and yet still these facts fail to register with him.He sees the unfairness, but he does not comprehend.
And this incomprehension?Is itnot another example of alienation?
And see that if
Social Security were truly a market creation we would not have to write about it, or discuss it, or consider how it works.The market would intermediate for us, between us.We would not have to weigh the relative conditions of being a husband and wife with two children with less than $35,000
a year compared to a retiree with over $75,000 a year in non Social Security income.What is just?
conditions for a man of 30 with an IQ of 103 and a wife and two children?Is
it just that he pay 12.5% of his income to a man of 68 whose IQ even now is still 128, two degrees on his study wall, in his
$1.5 million home, with no debts, a pension under the old plan before the ‘give backs’ of the 1990s, etc, etc.And all of this in a county from which economic activity has been systematically excluded
since the 1970s, down zoned and down zoned and employers driven away, while the immigration laws have been dropped to supply
the cheap labor that services the selfish old bastard.Illegals because they
can not vote and disturb the hegemony of the Post Liberal elite.What is just?
All these relationships
could have been worked out privately with voluntary choices.It is only because
of the mandates, the taxes, the restrictive zoning, the state's distortion of the market by powerful elites, that we
must find some way of considering all of these many issues.
But how can we? We have no common language anymore.No common ethic.We are each of us alienated one from the
other. We have been betrayed.
of the individual certainly does not consist of the quantity of 'cultural values' which he amasses; it consists of an articulated
selection of culture values. But there is no guarantee that this selection has reached an end that would be meaningful to
him precisely at the 'accidental' time of his death. He might even turn his back to life with an air of distinction: 'I have
enough--life has offered (or denied) all that made living worthwhile for me.' This proud attitude to the religion of salvation
must appear as a disdainful blasphemy of the God-ordained ways of life and destinies. No redemption religion positively approves
of 'death by one's own hand,' that is, a death which has been hallowed only by philosophies. . . .
. . . The advancement
of cultural values, however, seems to become a senseless hustle in the service of worthless, moreover self-contradictory,
and mutually antagonistic ends. . . .
. . . Culture becomes
ever more senseless as a locus of imperfection, of injustice, of suffering,of sin, of futility. . .
. . . The barriers of
education and of esthetic cultivation are the most intimate and the most insuperable of all status differences. . . .
. . . Wherever the
external order of the social community has turned into the culture community of the state it obviously could be maintained
only by brutal force, which was concerned with justice only nominally and occasionally and in any case only so far as reasons
of state have permitted. This force has inevitably bred new deeds of violence against external and internal enemies; in addition,
it has bred dishonest pretexts for such deeds. Hence it has signified an overt, or what must appear worse, a pharisaically
veiled, absence of love. The routinized economic cosmos, and thus the rationally highest form of the provision of material
goods which is indispensable for all worldly culture, has been a structure to which the absence of love is attached from the
very root. All forms of activity in the structured world has appeared to be entangled in the same guilt. Veiled and sublimated
brutality, idiosyncrasy hostile to brotherliness, as well as illusionist shifts of a just sense of proportion have inevitably
accompanied sexual love. The more powerfully the forces of sexual love are deployed the less they are noticed by the participants,
and the more veiled they are in a Pharisaic way. . .
. . . And under the very
conditions of 'culture,' senseless death has seemed only to put the decisive stamp upon the senselessness of life itself.”

"I frankly found the statement
that the President made somewhat offensive."
--- Sen. Barack Obama
To see the extent of the
betrayal I ask you to question Senator Obama’s statement.Ask:‘Did he really find it offensive?Frankly?Even somewhat? (Oh, that is somewhat weak.)Or, is he only
just saying that it was offensive? Is
he a liar?Is this not an example of the veiled pharisaical way the truth is
manipulated in what would otherwise be an obvious bare fisted grab for power?A
gross and obvious lie.(Are you surprised to learn that he also supports “ethanol”?Imagine that, just another cheap political
When you hear Senator
Kennedy express concern for the poor do you suppose he actually cares?He no
more cares for the poor than he really believes Mr. Bush perpetrated a “fraud” ginned up “in Texas.”That Senator Kennedy knew his charge was a lie can be seen in the fact that he will
not now repeat the charge of “fraud.”But he is so dishonorable that
he will not now withdraw the charge and apologize to Mr. Bush.
All of this is a
betrayal.But the betrayal I wish you to focus on is the betrayal of reason itself.The acceptance of Kennedy’s pretensions of care for the poor is a betrayal.The acceptance of him in society after his false claim, (again a claim he knew was
false when he made it as evidenced that he will not now repeat it, nor apologize), is also a betrayal.But that Mr. Bush (41) still gave a prize to Kennedy after he made the charge against his son, shows the
depth of the betrayal of reason.Even his own father would not stand up to Kennedy.
This is the real betrayal.
Senator Obama did not
find Mr. Bush’s reference to the absence of survivor benefits in Social Security offensive.He is just saying he found it offensive.(The race card.)And this too is a betrayal of us and our civil discourse.Yet again the real betrayal is the willingness of society to accept Mr. Obama’s playing of the race
When Michael Weiner
goes before the national radio audience and makes a series of anti-Semitic statements he does so with the full confidence
that his friends at the ADL will not complain, no one will complain because he is himself a Jew, (having had the foresight
to be born of a Jewish mother.(Smart move.))This mere fact, that his mother was Jewish, insulates him from his gross
conduct.His “Jewishness” like Obama’s “blackness”
allows him to escape examination.Your credulity is the larger betrayal.
Dozens of women, many
with PhDs, have complained that Dr. Summers’ statements about the number of women scientists may be limited by genetic
ability, have humiliated them, and that these statements are just plain wrong.One
faculty researcher even described how she became physically ill upon hearing Dr. Summers’s words.
Yet, of course,
even these bald facts were not even the subject of Dr. Summers’ remarks.He
was not speaking of these trivial facts, about SAT scores, or college admission preferences,not
even talking about how the engines of resentment, and how female resentments continue to power their preference machinery
long after the original conditions have past into the history books.
Dr. Summers was
talking not about the great mass, but about the elite.Not those who are only
one standard deviation above the mean, mode, median, (in a bell distribution they are all the same point),i.e., not the top 16%,not even those who are only two standard
deviations above the bell average, but those in the category of three and even, unimaginably, four! standard deviations above
the average.Far, far,out
on the very edge of the distribution of cognitive ability. Murray and Herrnstein say in the Bell Curve that so few people fall in this narrow range that they canno
longer be described with statistics. There are so few that it is in any case as easy to review their individual case
histories. An unimaginably small group of people, geniuses.
Here you can see the betrayal
most clearly.Why does the mere mention of this possible difference in this tiny
elite group of scientist PhDs;figure as the center of our discussions?There are multiple betrayals taking place here.Males are obviously being discriminated against in college admissions.This
is a betrayal.Dr. Summers, along with anyone
else who believes in the open discussion of serious topics, have been betrayed.The
coverage of this issue has been limited to the “feelings” of “inclusiveness” among a tiny group of
elite women.They won the genetic lottery and now they demand our sympathy too.Sympathy for hurt feelings.That these
elite women have no sense of their egotistical self centered over reaching is another example of the real betrayal.
But the betrayal
I want you to see is the pharisaically veiled absence of reason, of brotherly love, of any bonds that might unite us.I ask you to look not at merely how Dr. Summers has been marginalized and targeted.But here we see the betrayal of reason itself.
picking people to draw out of their own conscience and experience a 'new' Constitution, we should not look principally for
good lawyers. We should look to people who agree with us.”---Justice Anthony Scalia
For it is not just
in society, down here at life’s edge, or on Hate Radio, or even among the elites of Harvard, but also in our courts
that we have been betrayed, there is no longer any unifying system of thought that can be applied, not evenin law.For hundreds of years a system of reasoning has been
developed for the examination of legal documents, the collection of evidence, the interpretation of the law.
Yet now we are time and
again assured by lawyers in black robes that as a matter of conscience they can no longer hold with previous decisions or
even legal reasoning and feel compelled to strike out on their own.Really?Or are they merely claiming that it is a matter of conscience?Again you are asked to consider if you are being lied to.If
so this is a betrayal.
But the larger betrayal
is the betrayal of reason itself.Justice Scalia has been abandoned by the simple
minded conservatives.As a lawyer Mr. Scalia is not arguing that he does not
interpret the law.He is not appealing to a simple minded objectivism:As if judges are no more than computers into which some set of facts can be downloaded and a judgment displayed
on the screen.
His argument is
more complicated than this.To fully understand it you would need to study the
law, learn how lawyers read documents, what logical inferences are required, or permitted, or prohibited.His argument is not that others are engaged in subjective interpretations while he is on the side of the
But it is just this intellectual
subtlety which has been betrayed and is lost.And as we lose this ability to
make these distinctions we are utterly betrayed in every quarter at every level of society.
And all around you it
can be seen.
It can be seen in the
$8 trillion national debt which grows out of, is the sign and evidence of your lost reason.Careless of the future, of your children who will be left with your debts you continue to pile on the debt with out
Your careless failure
to control knowledge of weapons of mass destruction is another example.
The Senate itself, constructed
by accident, gives the greater importance to the small populations in the remote rural areas, over the great metropolises
where the people actually live.And here the failure of the Senators is particularly
striking for they could themselves reconstitute themselves.The Senators could
stop referring to their “constituency” as if it were a single state and start referring to the nation, the whole
nation, as “the” constituency.
That this very idea, that
the Senators themselves might renew our democracy, is laughable is another example of how completely we have been betrayed.
And here Senator Hatch
appearing on the Imus radio show and saying, “I have heard what you do to some of your listeners,” is perfectly
representative of the absence of brotherly love, sublimated brutality, the pharisaically veiledbetrayal.Like Mr. Bush (41) giving a prize to the man who
accused his son of a politically motivated fraud to drive the nation to war, Mr. Hatch did not care.
"From the wild Irish
slums of the 19th-century Eastern seaboard to the riot-torn suburbs of Los Angeles," he wrote at the time in a Jesuit magazine,
"there is one unmistakble lesson in American history: a community that allows a large number of young men to grow up in broken
families, dominated by women, never acquiring any stable relationship to male authority, never acquiring any set of rational
expectations about the future -- that community asks for and gets chaos."----
and then on the floor of the Senate he added:“And it is very richly deserved.”
---- Daniel Patrick Moynihan
Kerry appeared on the floor of the Senate several years later, this was around 1991, and attempted to quote Senator Moynihan,
however he substituted “never acquiring any stable relationship to adult authority”.Always the politician.
Yet Senator Moynihan
did not say “adult authority” he said “male authority.”
And unlike me, Senator
Moynihan was a real scholar.If he said male you can bet he meant male.If he had meant adult he would have said adult.(With me you can never be too sure why I choose one word over another.(Don’t
read too much into it.Just try for the gist of the idea.))
So why did Moynihan
say male --- not adult authority?
In Men and Marriage,
George Gilder asks why the feminists who are so pleased to cite Margaret Meade and others for evidence of the existence of
matriarchy and draw out from these observations whole visionary theories of a future society; why do they never ask themselves
this one simple question:Why are the only existent examples of matriarchy limited
to a few small hunter gatherer tribes in rain forests on remote South Pacific islands, or various equatorial rainforests?
Where are all the other
examples of matriarchy?
One word answer:destroyed.
I have been watching
the news babes reporting the recent judge murders and the killing of a pastor because of a dispute about the sermon.How uncomprehending.
Each new crime is reported
as if it were a sole exception.There are the usual cries for swift punishment,
and yet there seems to be a willful refusal to consider if there is any larger explanation, a pattern, a theory that can unite
the various apparently random events and organize them into an intelligible whole.
The suggestion is that
distressed families produce larger numbers of criminals.The fewer children,
males, born into these families results in lower crime rates.The paper is unpublished
for the same reason that Gilder’s question why the scarcity of matriarchies is never examined, has not been answered.
To answer this question would be politically incorrect.It is the same reason
that Senator John Kerry knew that it was more politically correct to substitute “adult authority” for Moynihan’s
male authority. The same reason the Bell Curve is still disputed.
As one National Review
author noted at the time the Bell Curve was first published,it is all perfectly
true, but one should not say so.Not only can one never trust that author again,
one can not trust National Review.Now when they say something or other is not
true is it because they think it so, or because one “should not say so?”
This is the problem
with political correctness.It is a lie.And how do we know when the lying has stopped?
What the news babes
fail to comprehend, possibly because no one has ever suggested the possibility to them, because politically incorrect, is
that all these apparently random examples of violence, largely male violence, are all of them related to the failure of our
society to socialize males into the social system, structure, the community.This
criminal has this history, and that criminal has another history, this one had a dispute over a divorce, another over a sermon,
and this one went wee, wee, wee all the way home.But do you not notice a common
If this sounds familiar,
if you are thinking that this sounds like the liberal’s ‘society is to blame not the criminal,’ you are
partly correct.It is similar but not the same.What conservatives know that liberals do not know, according to the Moynihan Theorem, is that conservatives know that
culture is more important than politics.
want to control crime however, we want to control crime through our culture, using the whole society, not just throw some
new spending into a program dreamed up by the former editors of the Harvard Crimson.For example, one can not say enough good things about President Bush’s Faith
Based Initiative.Culture is more important than politics. And using culture, engaging the entire person at a deep level, not merely as a sociological abstraction,
but heart and soul, is far more powerful than anything a bureaucrat in the municipal building downtown could ever do, orwould ever want to do.
It is easy to
favor spending more on parole officers, or Head Start Programs, or Night Basketball “counselors and mentors,”partly because for most of you the actual cost, taxes are borne by others, those with
lesser ability to raise their prices and pass their taxes on to others.But mainly
these “liberal” solutions’ true costs, the true costs being the inevitable failure of this limited, big
government program, approach, this true cost, the cost paid in actual lives behind bars or in chalk outlines on the pavement,
is borne by the people, who are not former editors of the Harvard Crimson, who have zero ability to pass on their taxes by
raising their prices, the people whose society is in steep and accelerating decline.
It is harder to set
up censor boards for CDs and movies, or even, and this is much harder, to use “social opprobrium” to control the
merchants who produce the violence and smut oozing out of the mass media sewers. School
rules which might require students to dress appropriately, sit attentively,work
assiduously, etc. are not possible because liberal politicians find it too difficult to uphold a standard.It is much easier to raise the parcel tax.Raise the tax for
Gates recently described the AmericanHigh School as “obsolete.”Will
liberals use the increased money, (by law California must spend 50% of the State’s
budget on the schools), on technology for example?Use technology so the
students can work independently if they must be “excused” from the class on account of their misconduct?Of course not, the teacher’s unions have opposed any use of technology that
might compete with their strangle hold over the school budget.(California
recently withdrew from the Western Governor’s University, which it helped found, (under a Republican), because of the
political influence of the Community College faculty, which feared a loss of students and therefore funding.)
course the real reason liberal politicians can not agree to a high standard in our schools, can not agree to use our schools
to socialize the young men in our society, is because they know that these higher standards, whether academic standards,or higher standards of personal conduct would result in large numbers of students,
mainly poor and black, to be expelled.A disparate impact.That dreaded phrase.
so once again on examination it turns out that liberal politicians and their policies are not chosen because they are thought
to be the best approach but rather because they are found to be the easier, safest, most politically correct approach.
easiest way to create schools of a high standard in academics and student conduct, (socialization), is with vouchers.In a voucher scheme the parents themselves could select the school that best contributes
to the creation, (instilling), of the values they seek for their children.There
is no reason why a large high school could not be subdivided into four or five different schools all sharing the same campus,
the parents free to specify their preference.
this approach if parents really prefer schools where their children are not disciplined, where academics are not stressed,
where drug use and crime are common, then, by all means they can continue to send their children to the traditional high school.Rather than impose our standards we can simply allow the parents to decide for themselves.Who could object to this?
because this is the clearest example;the failure of vouchers, market choice,
in education we can see hear why I call this :Betrayal.
For their comes a point
when you must stop and reflect on your assumptions.If vouchers are a good idea,
if empowering parents to socialize their children by selecting schools that are in accord with their values is a good idea,
if free market choice is the best way to create excellence and allocate resources, if all of this is true, and yet still vouchers
in education, choice in education, has not been implemented we must ask:Why
Here and in example
after example, we can see that a dark hand has intervened in public policy,a
malevolent force has time and again blocked the good and assisted the bad.Of
this evil malignant force, betrayal seems the least we can say.
For example over the
last twenty years we have watched as one apartment block after another has been abandoned and dynamited.These public housing buildings, built at the cost of billions of dollars, were destroyed because the liberal
politicians did not want to have to impose a standard of conduct on the residents.These
large “projects” are being replace with “low rise” small scale structures of “dispersed”
Because it is the hope
that the new neighbors, who are themselves not residents of public housing will assist society in socializing the young male
residents of the new “projects.”The idea is that the surrounding
culture will have a greater impact than could be brought to bear inside the now destroyed large, high rise, structures.
But what is this but
a frank admission that the liberal politicians, and their bureaucrats, having gotten all they asked for during the Johnson
Great Society, and during Nixon and Ford, and Carter, having condemned and acquired the land, cleared the land, designed and
built these huge structures of their own choice, from one end of the country to the other, having filled these structures
with the residents of their choice, finally admitted that they could not in fact administer their ambitious housing program,
could not direct the residents to a better upwardly mobile life, could not engage with the people to establish "any set of
rational expectations about the future.”
Consider for example
that in Singapore, or Shanghai,
or Paris, or Berlin, all around
the world there are similar large structures, that have not been spectacularly dynamited, but which continue to house millions
of residents.Why is it that Americans can not live in high rise buildings, or
anyway in publicly owned high rise buildings? (If they are owned by the “public”
they are not owned by anyone.)
Is it not again,
as we have seen in example after example, because the liberal politicians were unwilling to impose a standard of conduct on
the residents of public housing projects?Is it not again that the liberal politicians
took the easy way out of their own policies?In Singapore
for example, third world immigrants from Malaysia also had
difficulty living in the high rise apartment buildings.
But in Singapore
rather than dynamite the buildings the officials altered the behavior of the residents.There, in Singapore, also
young boys liked urinating in the elevators just like the boys in America’s
public housing high rise buildings, but in Singapore they
installed moisture detectors on the floors of the elevator cars and automatically locked the elevator door.Boys learned not to urinate in the elevators.They were socialized.Male authority.Problem solved.
But in America billions
of dollars have been wasted, high rise buildings have been replaced with low rise buildings because American liberal politicians
and their bureaucrats did not really want to engage with the people, not heart and soul, not at all.
Do you think the Oakland
California Police do not know where the drug dealers live and conduct business?Do
you not think that they could, for example, install mobile police stations, containers with steel plates welded to the walls
for protection, with air conditioners, and bullet proof windows, with flood lights and with cameras inside to watch suspects?Park one of these behemoths in front of a suspect’s home and people would start
to pay attention.
Do you not think the
Oakland Police could easily take down the license plates of the University of California
at Berkeley students who drive into Oakland
to visit these very same drug dealer homes?So why not?
The liberal politician
who is Mayor of Oakland finds it easier to ignore the drug dealers, to disengage from the people.Once again the policy is chosen because it is easier not because it is the best policy. Ironically this liberal politician will now run for Attorney General of California.
Nor should it be supposed
that the failure of public policy is limited to the domestic policy questions only.For years Air Force Generals and Navy Admirals have frankly admitted that pilotless air craft were superior for a great
many missions and cheaper too.Yet they offered by way of explanation for their
failure to develop this technology the fact that they had themselves been pilots and did not look forward to the replacement
of the modern knight of the air by a machine.These admissions can be made because
there is no constituency for pilotless air craft, no civic action groups, no rallies, vigils, demands for action.
President Bush stated
after the Second Gulf War that he did not feel he had the right to “impose” the new government of Iraq.“Impose”?He marched
three armored divisions into a foreign country, over threw its government, imprisoned the former head of state, all at the
cost of billions of dollars and thousands of lives, but did not feel he had the right to “impose” a government?
The issue here is not
self determination of peoples.The new government could have included a
provision for a constitutional committee, elections, independent judiciary, free speech and assembly, but who were we, who
after all only liberated the country, who were we to “impose”?
But were did Mr. Bush
pick up such an idea?Could not impose?From Yale, Harvard .. . . and Stanford?Doesn’t this sound like something the Provost of Stanford would say?‘We
can not impose our form of government on another people.’Yes.That sounds like just the sort of thing one hears on college campuses, controlled as they are by, the bastions
of, the liberals.
And is it not
very much like Yale, and Harvard, and Stanford, for the Administration to deny America
the right to control our borders?Note that they do not want to raise the official
numbers, they do not want to go on the record and say, ‘yes, not 170,000 Mexicans a year, we think it should be 1,000,000
Mexicans a year.’They control the House, the Senate, the White House,
yet they can not bring themselves to exercise this authority to set a legal immigration policy.For, no matter what level they set as the official, legal, number for immigration, then they would have
to guard the borders and “impose” a rule and this they do not feel is their right.
They will not exercise
male authority.If we can not control our national borders, the students in our
schools, the residents of our public housing projects, even the prisoners in our prisons, how could we impose a democratic
government on Iraq?
At a very profound
level we have been betrayed.
Lecture Notes:03-07-05Suicide Club
Just when you think ABC NEWS can fall
no lower, that it has reached its nadir, then, unbelievably, it falls even
deeper into hypocrisy.
Of the 32,000 plus suicides
each year in Japan a few hundred are associated with the internet
suicide clubs.Yet these few suicides are the subject of the evening news report.
The concerned “journalist”
informs us that in Japan suicide has traditionally been regarded
as an “honorable” way out of “failure.”
See?The concerned and generous American “journalist” is displaying the broad reach of his transcultural
insight.Yeah.Failure.You understand that right?
At ABC News “failure”
is not problematic. No need to investigate or report on the meaning of “failure.”What does cause someone, young, in good health, to kill themselves?
No, what ABC News wants
to investigate is the use of the internet in a tiny less than 1% of the suicides in Japan.
As regular College Visitors
no doubt know, we say the hypocrisy of ABC News, because Jack Swanson, the manager of ABC radio station KGO, has a staff that
has harassed, and hectored, and oppressed me for these fourteen (14) years.
Mrs. Jack Swanson used
her influence to have me followed for a number of years reporting on her morning radio program where I had last been seen.Used her influence also with the millionaire owners of CENCAL insurance to harasse
me there and then laid off.
Mr. Jack Swanson gave
Michael Weiner, (aka Savage), his break in radio upon the suicide of Duane Garrett who jumped to his death from the Golden
Michael Weiner also had
me followed and followed me himself on occasions.He burglarized my room at the
Colonial Motel and shared the stolen notebook with his fellow employees of KGO.And
used his influence with Scott Bobro to harasse me at Farmers Insurance.Or was
Scott a friend of Ron Owens who used his contacts to harasse me at a local health club and at another job?
Former KGO employees Rose
Guilbault and Michael Krasney also joined in the over a decade of harassment and oppression.
And ABC News knows about
all of this, has helped cover it up, has calculated that it is cheaper to drive me to my death, in a futile protest in front
of KQED, with my brains splattered across their walls, than admit any of this.
This corporation, ABC
News, strikes a concerned pose over Japanese suicides, even as it works to cover up its own involvement, the involvement of
its own manager, Jack Swanson, and his “talent,” in several suicides.Is
this not hypocritical?
Bernie Ward has explained
his religious faith in the “life after death,” his simple minded faith, because without it, without this belief
“that my relationships with the people I love would continue . . . if they just ended . . . if all this is just temporary
. . . I could not go on.”
Got that?“Could not go on.”He believes because otherwise
he “could not go on.”
this very much like Mr. Ward’s politics?For there also doesn’t he
believe all sorts of things because he “needs to,”feels compelled
to?As matters of “faith” not reason? You can reason with him all you want, discuss economics, world affairs, human nature, go on, talk all you
But you can never reach
him.He has set himself in a certain way because he “needs to believe.”He is not free, is not at liberty, to reason, to think, to reconsider.
Is he really here?Is he not a kind of ghost already?
And is he not very
much like his colleagues at ABC NEWS?
Are there any human beings
left on the planet?
Failure?Is not Bernie Ward a failure of a human being?He has lost
And Jack Swanson?Would you say he is a failure?He has
money, a “management job” with a big corporation, and yet can you not see the emptiness?For example, he thinks it is amusing that his wife when she travels back to Missouri
changes her accent completely.He arranged for her to phone in her morning radio
program so we could hear his crazy obsessive compulsive wife.Her colleague Lee
Rodgers asked her if she thought it odd that she should so completely change?“Well,”she said, still in that thick accent, “you try to fit in . . . you know . .
.”(like marryingthe station
And when Michael Weiner
stole the notebook his ABC NEWS colleagues tried to “fit in” with that, a felony also, even though Weiner is a certifiable lunatic.He finds life
more interesting as he oscillates from manic to depressive.But what is his periodic
loss of reason?Is this not a “failure?”
And his colleagues?And what of the ones who went along with the felony, and went along with Ron Owens
and Mrs. Jack Swanson, and have helped ABC NEWS cover upall of this?What are they but more “failures?”
“I’m not going
to put a gun to my head for anyone.”----Don Imus
And what of ABC
Their employees have used
their positions of power to destroy another human being.But what of the company
itself?What credibility can that “news” organization have left?
What is ABC NEWS but a
And notice conservatives
how ABC’s “liberalism” is only a patina, a color of virtue.See
also how for a time Michael Weiner used “compassionate conservatism” for cover and how Mrs. Jack Swanson also
has found a radio market niche claiming to be a “conservative” in between performing sex acts to get her husband’s
absentee ballot, or calling Senator McCain a “media whore,” and on
and on . . .
These are, all of them,
people without morals or scruples.They solemnly report on the Japanese suicide
club while they wink expectantly to one another, ‘not too much longer,.
. . not too much longer . . .’
I stopped seeing
Yvonne after Garrett’s death.I thought if only he had talked to someone.That perhaps he did not talk to anyone about his problems because he saw how Yvonne
had betrayed me.
Now I can see that
the betrayal was far larger than Yvonne violating my trust, he worked there at ABC.He must have seen all of this more clearly than I.He knew about Yvonne’s
betrayal, yes, and perhaps he laughed with his colleagues there at ABC NEWS.But
also he looked into their vacant eyes set in soulless faces, listened to their inane chatter, their hollow laughs.He knew them better than I.
No wonder he jumped.
As the reporter said,it was
an honorable way out of failure --- the failure that is ABC, KGO, San Francisco.
Lecture Notes:03-04-05Landmines of Injustice?
I have been waiting
for Don Imus’ jokes about Federal Judges finding their families in a pool of blood.So far nothing.McGurk must still be working on the jokes.
said he for one was not going to answer his critics, saying they are. . . they
are . . . (dust?) --- no,“lint.”See?Lint not dust.His answer
to Lecture Notes 02-15-05,where I realized that the reason no one saw the connection
between Jordan, (formerly of CNN), and Gardner and me is because
Gardner and I are not human beings.In your eyes we are dust.
Mrs. Jack Swanson has
not had any jokes about dead family members of Federal Judges either.But she
has explained how she showed her breasts to a passing sightseeing boat as it past by.You see she can not be embarrassed:a whore and proud of it.Jack Swanson must be so proud;what an eye for talent.
But who can be surprised?Who now can claim not to know that Don and Mrs. Don Imus have no respect for the truth?
This is the deranged
couple who threw their 23rdnanny out in the desert at four in the
morning after waking her up and shouting at her at , and again at one and two, and then went on the radio and called her a
“terrorist”because she had A POCKET KNIFE!
And no one cares.Not about the nanny.Not about the truth.Not about the science.
And not even about
the Federal Judge’s husband and mother found shot to death, in a pool of blood, in
the basement of their home.
I do not understand
how you go on with your lives?
On what basis do you
object to the murder of the Judge’s family?Because it is wrong?
If you deny truth how
can you demand justice?
Don Imus used his influence
in 2003, ( that was eleven years after I had stopped writing letters to the Senate), to harasse and oppress me.And many of you knew about it even then.
Many of you know about
it now.In 2001 and 2002 when Mrs. Jack Swanson used her influence with the millionaire
owners ofCENCAL many of you knew about that too.
And since then
many more have come to know about what was done to me.
“I have heard
what you do to some of your listeners.’ --- Senator Hatch on the Don Imus radio show
And you know about
the lies Mrs. Don Imus is telling about vaccines and autism.Know and do nothing.
If God is the Good,
Truth, then to lie is to deny God.And if you deny God how can you ever demand
Do you think
truth is divisible?But if a man were to take a hammer and bring it down on little
Wyatt’s skull as he walks across the sidewalk from his school to his limousine,and killed him, and left him there, on the sidewalk, in a pool of blood, . . .on what basis, . . . by what god would you demand justice?
Deidre?Do you not think Bill O’Reilly would cluck “words have consequences,”to your grief? Do you suppose that those who supported
you in your lies would support you in your grief?All the spectators who have
watched the spectacle of my life being destroyed by Michael Weiner, Don Imus, Mrs. Jack Swanson, all the rest, they will gape
at your grief too. At ABC’s station KGO they laughed at the theft
of my notebook, and at Michael Weiner’s reading from that notebook.Do
you not think they will laugh at your suffering too? Can’t you see that?
I do not understand
how you go on with your lives?
If you deny truth how
can you demand justice?
Landmines of the Heart?This is the new excuse? We did not know
what we did was wrong because we did not see your heart would be injured? As
if the heart were secret, hidden, the way a landmine is hidden?But this is just
backward isn’t it?The heart you injured was not hidden, it was in plain
sight.What was hidden?Your lies!You hid your lies.
When I first learned
of the betrayal I immediately told Yvonne.I was not secret.
But the betrayal, that
was hidden wasn’t it?And even now, all these years later we still have
the lies?And why are you still lying?Because you know it was wrong.
The knowledge of the
wrong came to you, and in your shame you hid it with a lie.Covered it over the
way a landmine is covered over.You denied the truth, God.
So how now do
any of you claim justice?
On 9-11, how do you
demand justice, if you deny God?
And when the bio-attack
comes . . . how will you demand justice then?
You who have lied,
and lied sometimes for no reason, how will you ever demand justice?
I would be well within
my rights to rejoice at your suffering, but your lies are themselves a sign and evidence of your suffering.
Don Imus and Mrs. Don
Imus can not help themselves.They must spew this misinformation and scare the
thoughtless parents about autism, or about how they gave their children cancer because they used cleansers with bleach in
them, because this is their degeneracy.They are not contriving to be liars to
harm others, it is that they are liars, or rather, neurotics who are so lost they can not find there way back to the truth,
God.(Oh, and do not think for a moment that Don Imus or that deranged wife of
his will take responsibility for all the children their misinformation campaign will
harm.Don Imus is irresponsible.A
rich irresponsible degenerate, with a deranged wife.(Not a pretty picture.))
Let us have no more
of Landmines of the Heart.The Heart is not hidden.But your lies are hidden.
You know you have done
wrong and you seek to hide it, from man and God.
You can never demand

Oil Floor Proposal:Oil price fixed at not lower than: (for
example 90% of highest quarterly price:$53x 90% = $47.70).If OPEC opens the spigot in order to ruin our Synthetic
Oil Industry the Federal Government will hold the price and use the windfall to draw down the National Debt.So if OPEC drops the price back to $35 to break the Synthetic Oil price of $47.70 the Federal Government
will collect the difference of $12.70 to reduce the $8 trillion National Debt.

Chicago -- (AP) --Two shot execution style, found in Judge’s basement.
U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, 61, found the bodies of her husband, attorney, Michael Lefkow,
65, and her mother, Donna Humphrey, 89, who was visiting from Denver, about 6 p.m. Monday when she returned home from work,
police spokesman Pat Camden said.
U.S. District Judge Joan Humphrey Lefkow, was once the target
of a failed murder plot by a white supremacist Matthew Hale, who was convicted in April 2004 for soliciting the murder ofthe Judge, found the two bodies in a
pool of blood in the basement of their home , a source said.
The source close to the investigation who told The Associated
Press Tuesday, on condition of anonymity, that the victims were each shot in
the head and .22 caliber shells were found near by.The .22 is the favored
weapon for execution style murders.
Hale is awaiting sentencing on one count of murder solicitation and three counts of obstruction of justice.Authorities gave no indication that the deaths were related to the judge's involvement
in the case of white supremacist Matthew Hale, who was convicted in April 2004 of soliciting an undercover FBI informant to
Lefkow received police protection after Hale was arrested in 2003. Prosecutors alleged that he was angry
because Lefkow ruled that he could no longer use the name WorldChurch of the Creator for his group since another organization
had a copyright on that name.
Hale, 33, became notorious in 1999 when a follower, Benjamin Smith, went on a deadly shooting rampage
in Illinois and Indiana. Targeting minorities, Smith killed two people, including former
NorthwesternUniversity basketball coach Ricky Byrdsong, and wounded nine others before killing himself as
police closed in.
Random Murder?Targeted Murder? So what?
Wasn’t that Bill O’Reilly who just the other day told us that words have consequences?If you write a letter to the Senate you have to expect that you will be targeted for
the next fourteen years.See?Words,they have consequences. (This is as deep as O’Reilly gets.)
So by O’Reilly’s reasoning that Federal Judge brought this on herself.Right?You take a job like that,hey,you go’ta expect people are going to get angry
withs yous.You have got to expect consequences right?See? Consequences.
That Judge, she, can not expect us to get involved. Right?
This is our Post Liberal elite, IMUS, O’REILLY, WEINER, HANNITY, LIMBAUGH, they expect everyone else, the Judge and her family, our soldiers in Iraq, all us schlubs;we are to sacrifice for them, always and forever. Why
the Judge took the job, or the troops volunteered for service, or why I wrote those letters fourteen years ago to the Senate,
our Post Liberal elite does not have a clue.
This is how political cultures crumble.First the insurance
adjuster, resident of AlamedaCounty (the wrong side ofThe
Bay), a Republican, a conservative Republican is targeted.Let’s get the
marriage counselor to betray him.What fun!
Then another says, ‘You know I didn’t like what he said about WeimarGermany.You know “Weimar Conservatives”(I
actually heard one of them use this term) they caused Hitler and the Holocaust.Let’s
get him!’Right Michael Weiner, Ron Owens?
And so it goes.As the process continues, Federal Judges
find their families in a pool of blood.O’Reilly simply will not recognize
that he has any duty to preserve a democratic culture, a sphere for public discourse.That is all just “theory” to him. And so also for the
likes of Imusand Weiner, Hannity
It does not take long for society to degenerate into Iraq.Bombings.Assassinations.Democratic culture?
Moynihan once said on the floor of the Senate that “a society can decline into barbarism in a generation.”If I had been there I should have jumped to my feet and shouted, “No, Sir!,No, Sir!You are wrong,in an instant Sir, a society can descend into barbarism in an instant!!”
So here you are Imus.Now go tell Deidre about the Federal
Judge in Chicago.
And tell her, this:Tell her that you and yours, Weiner,
Mrs. Jack Swanson, and your pimps and creeps, Bobro, Frank Blaha, Bo Dietl and all the nameless faceless malicious shits have
all,--- all of you have helped destroy America.
And all of you please stop reveling in your triumph over me, and everyone else.(Hannity, for example, laughing about the hose in the mail slot of Laura Ingraham’s enemy.“The funniest story I ever heard,” he said.Funniest?You see Sean when you present yourself as a religious moral man, a “good man,”you have further to fall.Imus is already
in the gutter.Can he be shown to be an even bigger degenerate and creep?)
You take pride in your “viciousness” but you just sound like fools.Hannity in particular, but McGurk, Limbaugh, all of you, like drooling low grade morons whose diapers need changing.
That you do not recognize how sick you are is part of your sickness.You just appear hideous to the world.For example, joking about suicides
trying to show you have hardened your hearts.Even if it were possible, the attempt
to show yourselves this way, proves how insecure you are.
And again, Brian Sussman, like Hannity, also presents himself as a “religious man”shows himself for the hypocrite that he is.(Trying to get
into the good graces of the boss’ wife he delivered himself of a long “philosophical dissertation” on the
importance of “objectivity” thereby proving his hopeless shallowness.He
claims to be a “Christian” but appears to not have understood the first thing about Jesus.(see Wrong Part V at the Max Weber Institute)) Ok, look, you convinced me, your hearts are hardened.So stop with the foolish posturing.You sound pathetic and you are confusing
your other listeners.
(Or for example how many times is Imus going to call someone a terrorist?What is he trying to prove?‘See I call everyone a terrorist, it
don’t mean nothin’.’O’Reilly also for a time was trying
to show he was a fun loving fellow who regularly talks dirty on the air, ‘See it don’t mean nothin’.’Or, Mrs. Jack Swanson trying to show she was not upset by the Intel Operations
page or the CENCAL Letters bragged to a guest on her radio show, (her husband is the station manager), how she had gotten her husband’s absentee ballot by performing sex acts for him.There was an embarrassed pause as the guest absorbed this revelation . . . “. . . ok . . .”
came the weak reply.‘It don’t mean nothin’.’
let us hear you joke about the slaughter of the Judge’s family.Show us
how tough you are, Hate Radio, tell a joke about the murder of the Judge’s family.
I don’t care if my death will change you or not.It does not matter if you change.That
is the measure of how little you matter.
You destroyed my life.Big deal.I was an insurance adjuster.A Republican from Alameda County.All alone.How hard was it for you to
drive me to my death?
That it took you fourteen years (14) is proof of your witlessness.
