Heads, we all lose; Tails, we all lose


     There is a lot of counter-current and cross-current in the political/cultural theatre at this time.   Deviousness abounds.  It would be nice to try to overlook and not remember blowhards such as FOXNews's O'Reilly talking about how the Big Oil Companies needed to be punished for profiteering during the last episode when one gallon of gasoline finally rose to the same cost as one gallon of milk.
     O'Reilly howled about how there should be investigations and a punitive tax of some sort, because it just wasn't fair that a company should make a profit on the backs of people who needed their cars to go to work.
      Possibly he was referring to the 51st Amendment to the Constitution which reads, "Therefore, by the hand of those who care for the welfare of others, we order and require that all gasoline and any other product deemed to be necessary for the conduct of what anyone decides is necessary for the conduct of a comfortable and rewarding life, that product or service can be received at no cost.
    This includes, but is not limited to, a basic supply of 5,000 packets of prophylactics, and in order to assure inclusiveness, these condoms will only be provided to girls or those self-identifying as girls between the ages of 12 and 39  (39...get it?  39....funny, right?) who will attend, do attend, or have attended prohibitively expensive private Marx0centric Universities.  The Un-Founding Parents proudly name and dedicate this Amendment for Mzrsrq. Santa Fluke.

    To be fair, O'Reilly is what is known as a "rationalist".  It is good to be rational, right?   Somebody is informed by another, "All horses have four legs." it might be discerned down the road that the observer would see a cow, and then turn to tell his son, "That's a really handsome cow."
     The meaning, of course, is that Rationalism is fraught with many exits that lead to blind alleys, or at times to intellectual cliffs.

     Speaking of intellectual cliffs, we now have various and sundry important people speaking about "doing something" concerning the "Negro Problem", or the "Inner City Problem", or the "Black Lives Matter" problem, or "The Racial Divide", etc.    We are brought immediately to some of the most profound words ever spoken on the topic.  To wit:

     “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

Booker Tecumseh Washington

     As many OROGs (Order of the Readers of the Old Gringo) know, El Gringo Viejo frequently states that he is a Confederate and not a Klanner.  This above observation is not only salient, but also indicative of the mind of a man who has gone far beyond the limitations brought on by "Rationalism".    I, your humble servant, would not have given a second thought to voting for him as President of the Confederated States of America.
     Booker T. Washington was rational, but more importantly he was deductive, inductive, reasonable, and inspired by Greater Power.   He was, in short, at least one of the top ten most important social - cultural thinkers of all times in the  case of the American experiment.   I shan't even think about mentioning the names of Sacred Cows and Bulls of the "Civil Rights Movement".  It would probably result in some kind of vendetta by Lois Lerner or Loretta Lynch.

     Dr. Washington, however, bears an audience.  For all times.

  This humble servant (El Gringo Viejo) does clearly remember the times when his Godmother, as a member of the McAllen Independent School District (McISDP) Board of Trustees, repeatedly declared that participation in the Department of Agriculture's programme to feed children at and in school would be the ruin of local control of socially democratic schools that served as an extension of the culture, the religions, and the family needs of a locale.   
     My mother, Auntie Marty, and several other well-placed ladies of the area in their circle agreed wholeheartedly.   They all likened the programme as "...the camel's nose under the tent flap".    "Should we yield on this, then the Government will choose the rabbi, preacher, or priest who says grace over the school's Easter Vacation assembly."   Liberals, (almost all anti-Mexican in their make-up, roared with laughter about this.)   said very frequently, things along the order of ,"If we don't feed them, then who will?"  and other idiotic things such as, "After all, it's good for money from the government....for the ladies in the cafeteria.  And the farmers will benefit, too!"
     The joke is, and almost nobody will believe it now, that the Mexican-descended people who lived among us, and us among them, fed themselves and frequently delivered specialty holiday Mexican specialties late at night....such as on Christmas Eve, or during Christmas-tide....things like incredible tamales and/or chiles rellenos (stuffed peppers).  It was a different time, and Hollywood and the Hamptons could never understand.
     It was one of the greatest complements that "Anglo" families had....and they would strut around at Church the next Sunday, dropping, "...the Lopez's brought us 4 dozen tamales of chicken last night".....and then "Well, the Garcias came by at sundown and they had 'our choice'....picadillo, or picadillo with venison or chicken with chili or know...we are very important to they are to us...." .   It was very much like an Angloid variation of hens clucking around in the scratch-yard....each clucking her importance.   The Left will never, and cannot ever, understand.   And further they wish not to understand.  They want the "minorities" as political cannon-fodder.
To wit:

     For the past 50 years, the Washington Establishment has been telling us that they had to help the Negro component of the population.  According to them, and certain bigots, almost all of whom were socially lower-case Democrats, the Negro needed to be cared for and the proof of it was that Negro leaders said that that was the case.
     Oddly, the Progressives, the Klan, and certain of the Negro "leadership" in the South as well as places especially in the urban north developed that mentality in union, in unison, simultaneously, and with positive conviviality.   Remember, as we have previously  posted, Margaret Sanger addressed the Women's Auxiliary of the Ku Klux Klan, twice during the National Convention. They were listening to harangues about  euthanasia, selective breeding, and the need to eliminate the races of Jews, Negroes, and Mexicans.  Shades of (Sir Edmund) Hillary and her outreach to children,.
     The words Margaret spoke were almost identical to what was being said at the same time in a place called Germany by another fellow, who was decidedly un-Arian in appearance and ancestry.   However, the Progressives wanted to be "ahead of the curve" in the matter of "improving the race".

     The scenes of thousand of Jews being bulldozed into common graves by the Nazis, forced them to change their tactics.   They considered spaying and neutering the 'undesirable elements" of society.  Others had a better idea.  Why don't we just give them "public assistance".  Everywhere it had been tried, the recipients had devolved into an almost sub-human, lethargic, violent group that would consume itself with murder and disease.  It worked for a long while in England....and in France they decided to kill each other after they ran out of aristocrats.

   Ergo....massive public assistance begins to set in, especially accelerating during and after the time of the establishment the Great Society.  Paternity is replaced almost entirely by AFDC (Aid to Families with Dependent Children).   Thereby...State welfare systems, heavily subsidised by Uncle Sam forced fed literally trillions of dollars into the digestive and reproductive tracts of people who gradually, and then steadily, learned that blobbing was easier than self-support. 

     We return to one of our favourite statistics....that being that the level of American babies born without known paternity among the Negro cohort in 1950 was 7 per cent.  To-day it is well over 70 per cent.   In the 1950s, people of Black African ancestry had well-established themselves in the skilled labour, the arts, sciences, and the field of professional athletics.  They were very much a part of the patchwork quilt that made America whole.
     After just thirty years, they were in serious jeopardy of social disintegration.  After fifty years, as it is now obvious, the situation has gone well beyond social psychosis.  The idea that a major party candidate can make truck with any group that can declare that Black Lives Matter and underscore that other lives are not significant, speaks to the hideous union made by the givers and takers of the largesse of the Exchequer of the Republic and its federated units.

    Therefore, we are with regret driven back to the point:   If we pay for more of the same just to keep the growing mass at bay a little longer, we lose, but if we cease to pay for even some form of marginal peace, we lose.   This is the brilliance of the social engineering brought to us by the Fabian Socialists, the Klan, the effete Northeastern liberal thinkers, the rapacious Democrat vote engineers, and those who were identified by Booker Tecumseh Washington....that there is a class, made of numerous charlatans who meet this description below-reposted.

“There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

    Lord, please take the Sharptons and the Klanners and the vote-buyers and enslavers to the public dole and deliver them up to some greater purpose.  I advise Dr. Washington that there are numerous of the Caucasians who also benefit from the plight. real and imagined of the Negro race, and they too wish for that plight to continue so as to justify their inflated sense of self and their inflated sense of purse.
