What has happened to the United States of America?
« on: April 29, 2024, 09:03:13 am »
Sadly we are witnessing a significant decline in American Intelligence & Reason these days.

Social media groups like the Stop the Canal Clear-cut (STCC) are only a symptom & indicator of much deeper issues. When local "environmentalist" can't tell the difference between a public safety program and "deforestation" it's time to rethink how much America should embrace these "social media" think tanks and listen to those on social media that simply ignore the truth, in favor of embracing farce & fantasy.

It's time to stand up to those in our community who embrace their own lies when it comes to safety in our community, and the safety of the Erie Canal system.

It's been said that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (George Santayana originally wrote those words). In a 1948 speech to the British House of Commons, Winston Churchill said, “Those that fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” The sentiment is the same, learn from our mistakes or we will have to learn those hard lessons again, and again, and yet again...

Here we are again, social unrest in our country is turning the United States of America into the Divided States of American Politics, and nobody seems to want to call it out.

There's nothing new with COLLEGE STUDENTS protesting wars in this country, in fact back in the day (1960s) students protested the Vietnam War. The difference between then and now is very stark, the wars being protested back then were wars that OUR COUNTRY was involved in directly, not so today. College students of today can't seem to figure out that difference...but simply put, it's NOT our war folks. Those in our education system, who think protesting the Israel-Hamas war is "right", should be asked why they think America has any place to speak up about this... again, AMERICA is not at war, so why do colleges & universities think we should get involved with ending it?

We should be asking WHY the local news & college leaders aren't calling out these places of "higher learning" for their utter stupidity in letting students look foolish.

And it's not just college students who are acting like idiots these days. American news sources are all trying to report about upcoming decisions from the Supreme Court on whether a LEADER of the United States should have absolutely "immunity" from prosecution for acts taken while holding the office of President of the United States. So once again it's AMERICANS who can't seem to look back in history to see what happened when other countries had leadership that acted like they should have 'absolute immunity'.

Adolf Hitler comes to mind when we talk about that type of leadership. He thought he should have immunity from his actions when he ordered the death of millions of people who were of the Jewish faith. Mussolini was another 'dictator' who felt absolute immunity was a necessary part of leadership in Italy during World War 2.

Sadly the United States can't even learn from more "recent history" regarding countries today that have leadership that uses the idea of "absolute immunity" to run countries today... there are plenty of leaders TODAY that work under the protection of 'absolute immunity'.

Vladimir Putin enjoys ABSOLUTE IMMUNITY in Russia, which most Americans see as a THREAT to stability in the world stage. He orders the death of political rivals, and meddles with the politics of many other countries in this world, including a campaigns of lies & deception regarding our own country and it's leadership. Russia is still meddling in US elections, and Americans don't seem to care, especially those who want America to be led by Dictator in Chief, Mr. Trump.

And Kim Jung Un of North Korea also has 'absolute immunity' and look at how well that is going for that country and it's citizens. Remember this leader has his finger on Nuclear Weapons and seems undeterred in his quest to be Supreme Leader. And again, this leader eliminates any competition for his job, using absolute immunity as the tool.

There are plenty more examples in Middle East countries today, but it doesn't really matter, many Americans will simply ignore those because they favor arguing this idea of immunity in the Press and in the Courtroom of this nation, simply because a disgraced, ex-president of the United States says HE needs that immunity, to keep himself out of prosecution and eventual incarceration.

That  is none other than Mr. Donald Trump, who's legal team recently said that under 'total immunity' a US President "could feasibly" eliminate a political adversary with an 'official act' under an Absolute Immunity Clause. America AND AMERICANS have become so polarized that many have abandoned logic & reason simply because they followed the rantings of America's Dictator Wanna-Be, Mr. Donald Trump.

They don't seem to care about learning from history, in fact most of these folks are probably unable to learn from their own mistakes.

After all, many of these people voted for Mr. Trump, TWICE, and they are still mad about losing the second vote, the one that removed Donald Trump from the Oval Office and into the Courtroom. Just a reminder, the ONLY American Presidents who had praise for these types of political leaders is Donald Trump, who believes history should repeat in THIS country too, and America should have leadership that has absolute immunity for its leader.  You only need to look at his failed Government Coup on January 6th for evidence of that.

It's been said before, but it needs to be said again.... Wake up America, before its too late, and we end up just like Russia & North Korea.

Learn from history, please do NOT repeat the past, especially when it comes to electing someone aspiring to be the Supreme Leader of the Divided States of America.

Remember this fact from history... The United States of America wrote the Declaration of Independence & The Constitution because they DID NOT WANT TO HAVE ANOTHER KING running this country.

And we certainly do not need Adolf Trump running our country, he would invite people like Putin & Kim Jung Un to weigh in on how he should rule over 'his subjects" in the United States of Trump, and how he can have HIS FAMILY stay in power forever. Can you imagine the MESS our country would be in with Eric & Tiffany Trump running things?

Well now its becoming obvious what is playing out across Universities & Colleges across the nation... it's a lesson in "economics though force", though some smarter people may know it by its real name... EXTORTION.

What Is Extortion?

Extortion is the wrongful use of actual or threatened force, violence, or intimidation to gain money or property from an individual or entity. While the threat of violence or property damage is commonplace in extortion, it can also involve reputational harm or unfavorable government action.


So now we have a few college leaders giving in to these extortion tactics, giving more 'financial aid' to Palestinian students... how sad. And some universities are talking about 'listening to the grievances' of the Palestine protestors, who have gained college property by force. Those college leaders desperately need to restore order for the vast MAJORITY of students & faculty who are NOT protesting like a bunch of idiots...

What else can this be called?

It's EXTORTION at its finest, and teaching the next generation of students a valuable lesson...

Look at how easy America can be "held hostage" to the demands of the few in the wrong...simply by getting on the national news.

It's another banner day for American Democracy folks, people whining & crying to get their way, thinking the rest of this country "owes them restitution" for their stupidity and inability to understand the real picture. They are making demands that make zero sense and would probably cripple these places of higher learning with ANY reduction in funding through divestment.

Of course those issues never even are a thought with Palestine students holding their colleges hostage, have any of these student groups called for their OWN COUNTRY to release the REAL hostages taken over half a year ago?

Does anyone care or remember WHO started this Israel - Hamas War? 

PALESTINIANS!

"Does anyone care or remember WHO started this Israel - Hamas War"? PALESTINIANS!

And what religion are they? The same one that blew up the Twin Towers!

Is that a trend?
