From Abraham, Martin & John to Che', Mao and Kim
Breaking News: American diplomat staff working in Cuba apparently suffered hearing loss due to what is thought to be sound wave interference. I'm always amazed at uses found for sound in science, technology. . .and war. We had our own ideas back in 1971, when we wondered if ultrasonics had any bearing on injuries allegedly caused during UFO encounters: http://robert-barrow.blogspot.com/2007/10/apro-publishes-ufo-ultrasound-article.html
Harkening back to that old song, "Abraham, Martin and John," we find it all replaced with a new tune -- we could call it "Che', Mao and Kim." The peaceful intentions of Abe Lincoln, the Rev. Martin Luther King and John Kennedy seem very much currently to have been stampeded by the self-perpetuating influence of such despicable, murderous bastards as Che' Guevara, China's Mao Tse Tung and Kim Jong-un. I mean, isn't it easier to find a Che' t-shirt than a John Kennedy? How long before kids return to school with "I Love Kim" backpacks?
The world's always been a dangerous place, but we humans offer it an inordinate amount of help to keep things that way.
Various factions among us long assumed that we would eventually meet our end as a species by way of nuclear war, an asteroid, cosmic rays, disease or -- it's painful to write this -- climate change. But now, along comes yet another study indicating that men's sperm counts, especially among Western Europeans, continue to diminish in large numbers. Some researchers believe it's caused by the chemicals and plastics we use (no brain surgeon thinking needed there), and I tend to agree they play a significant influence.
Then again, maybe it's just about time for Homo sapiens and everything like us to check out the way millions of other "ancestor" species -- be they insects, fish, birds, mammals, carrots or snails -- have exited over the millennia. Maybe we've served a purpose and it's time for the old species heave-ho so Ma Nature can introduce the next circus attraction of the day. As much as we like to think we're going to live forever, or that we can continue our living legacies by bowing to biological processes and "love affairs" by making children, that's only a short-term solution, and ultimately the evolutionary curtain closes in anticipation of the next act.
Trump confronts North Korea: What's he supposed to do? Offer Kim U.S. citizenship? Trump, thankfully, is no Obama, and I'm grateful that he has enlisted the services of generals and other military personnel who don't have the luxury of sitting on their hands, attempting to wish Kim away to the cornfield. The leftist media, so out of most rational loops by now, is hardly worth attention as its associates blame Trump for everything and the Obama bunch for nothing.
Don't expect Princeton U. to provide men of strength: Nope, they're all in with hiring somebody to counsel masculinity out of male students, apparently because boys and men are just too, um, male-like. When I read about this -- and when I read that Google fired the employee who spoke truth regarding an apparently secret fact that men and women are different -- I actually felt as though I had just received a quick hit of testosterone, causing me to feel fresh and ready about telling Princeton's administrative and faculty morons where to go. Parents, if you're actually spending money to send, particularly, your sons to Princeton and other institutions of higher "leaning" like this, pull 'em out and get a refund. This crap, like "diversity," will kill both mind and body, if you let it.
As a side note: Last year, a college from which I received credits totally, absolutely and finally dropped me off their mailing list when I sent an e-mail and complained that a new "world peace" curriculum they were offering actually included in the introduction the words "social justice," and I suggested this was all about socialism and communism. Another fine example of colleges and universities striving to tear this country down - to be replaced by what, exactly? Hell by any other name is called Democrats.
