Is It Worse, or Do We Think It's Worse ?

   Is America in tatters as the Daily News suggests ?
    I'm not so sure as so much of what we fixate on is not new and different but just available to be seen.
    The police killings in LA and MN wouldn't be any more than police quell a threat stories if it were not for video and social media. Doesn't make it right, but its true.
     There's more diversity in most police departments than ever. More sensitivity training and more of everything, yet race intensifies as a wedge issue, often among the professional race baiters whose personal interests are served by conflict.
     The media points out the race of everyone and not just in crime stories.
      Everything is the "first ever", as we saw recently with the new Army Secretary.
       The shooting officer in Minnesota is "Asian".  What's that got to do with anything, other than to further identity politics.
      In my years on the planet and in business I have seen a change in attitudes in a variety of arenas and generally towards tolerance and away from blind bigotry.
      There still are a lot of issues, much of it to due with economic disparity, but for most of us, America is not in tatters.
      It's the place we live and where we go to work every day, pay our taxes, try to play by most of the rules, and retreat to our castles at bed time to watch on TV the world collapsing around us...Funny thing is the next morning, the world is still there,
Police in riot gear quell Baton Rouge, Phoenix protests

Yes, things are 1000 times worse than they were in the 1960's. Today we have generations of blacks and liberals whose heads are full of even more garbage than was ever imagined back then. Our schools and "higher education" industrial complex is on a continuous loop of lies, rinse and repeat. Fictitious terms like "White privilege", "micro aggression", "social justice" and "one percent" are injected in to the minds of these susceptible libruls, who are unable to objectively scrutinize ideas and concepts.

The result is a majority underclass of militant minded professional victims, who lack the values, education and morals necessary for a civilized society.

Actually you are wrong about the majority of the media referencing the race of criminals. They only report it when the perp is not black. They have been instructed by Jesse and Al to not report that a "black person" committed any given crime, and no doubt the government has also advised on that policy.

It is virtually impossible to mainstream cultural and social diversification if the majority of a society is made vividly aware that a 6% minority is committing virtually all violent crime.

This is the second time in my life I have seen this country go collectively insane. I must disagree with you Jeff, the world did not just go on. We never completely recovered from the last time. Far from it, actually. This time............Who knows???

What we are experiencing at the present is a direct, long term consequence of policies implemented by the President and Congress in power at the time (LBJ). Those who were paying attention at that time predicted this situation we now face, and of course, nobody paid any attention. The one constant about human behavior as a race, is that we always think in the short term, never about long term consequences, and we never learn from our mistakes.

The Democrat party has made a religion of racebaiting at every opportunity. Professional victims have eaten this bs up, as it explains why they don't work, don't care, and have no intention of doing either. It's a built in excuse for being a crap head. So what's a person going to do? Most blacks and minorities are the finest of citizens. By far most. But whether it's fat white girls that make babies or blacks that decline to be a part of our civilization, it's all the same. Nothing is really any different. And it has little to do with race. Trump says he will improve the economy by using common sense. I don't see how. There will always be those who march and burn just to prove how tough they have it. These folks will not a take a job if it appears at their door in a limo. We are at a balancing point, and a tipping point. People who work are now no better off than people who don't. But the votes are there to keep the FreeStuff rolling. On the other hand, those people who work are learning that it doesn't matter. Get drunk, make babies, make your own rap music, get some big pants, it's all the same. Compounding this fiasco is the mass importation of illegals, all done for the sake of humanity, excuse me, Democrat votes. And then we have the chosen ones who love party, country, and their children's future, not so much. This destruction of our nation is well underway. I guess we're to a point where we need to see the humor in it and let it go, per se.

The thing is, we don't know how the last guy was shot. We just saw him die AFTER the incident. I'll tell you this though, if I was a permit holder, I wouldn't have the gun in my pocket when a cop is coming up to the car. We don't really have enough information to judge this case, other than the media posting old pictures of him as a child and calling him a teacher yet failing to mention his couple dozen "minor" arrests.

The earlier shooting where they were wrestling the guy on the ground is another story. It's easy to see from the camera's point of view that the guy didn't have his gun in his hand. When you're rolling around on the ground with him and your partner says he has a gun, that's a whole other story.
And I love how the media says how they are "unarmed". Like Michael Brown, the only reason he was unarmed is because he wanted to be, it's because the cops prevented them from being armed.

“Is America in tatters as the Daily News suggests ?”

Good question. Is America in a “civil war” as the New York Post suggests… Or did you miss that one?

The problems are not a result of "economic disparity", they stem from a generation that has learned to live off others. And if they haven't acquired the freestuff they think they deserve, then they claim victimhood. Not everybody can have a government job. Name the group that hasn't suffered. Women, blacks, injuns, illegals, bums, criminals, gays and lesbians, teachers, the list goes on. The only group that has not suffered is the poor middle class dolts who work their tails off to care for their kids and pay for the FreeStuff the Dannies are entitled to. This will end soon, as the working class is learning to sleep in. It will be fun to watch, as it were.

It isn't all of America. It's parts of it. Some little town around here isn't falling apart today. Might not even know the rest of the planet is screwed. Cape Vincent is moving forward as always.

2:05 - how in the hell do you find it compelling and manage to weave me into every damn story or posting at this trough and all across la-la land?

You are one sick, sick individual ... everyone here knows it, too, but few I suspect really know you are or why you are such a coward and hide behind that Anonymous label. Why is that?

Can't defend your own post and lies and trail of utter horseshit. All is left for you is to try and figure out how to get shit back in the horse.

I also say again? Why doesn't Jeff Graham toss off or at least block this worm?

5:11/Dannie, haven't we been through all this before? You have anointed yourself as our local political king. Over the years, you've dropped nuggets like "all Republicans are racist" and "they committed no crime" when faced with the sale of baby parts. You claim Hillary's problems are not the result of criminal behavior, but of bad press coverage. I don't have to be concerned with defending lies, you do. And your mindless party loyalty puts you at a disadvantage. You also continually cry about being cited for stupidity, all while threatening lawsuits. The absurdity of your political stance is obvious to most every poster on this blog. You are our local Democrat clown. And you're mad because people talk about you. A Dannie is now synonymous with partisan, close minded fool. And that's my fault? People like you, who put party interests above that of your country are what has caused this social and economic depression we are facing. I will be here to point out your hypocrisy. I have no plans to go anywhere, no matter the threats, the profanity, or the tears. You often call people who criticize your politics as "sick". Think of me as a dedicated guy who has lots of time on his hands. We cannot simply surrender the nation to people who think like you do.

Danny, even our beloved and benevolent mayor finds you insufferable from time to time, like the rest of us do, all of the time. For instance, on Friday's show when you attempted to defend the indefensible, he called you out for rationalizing everything. And you even defended that, saying that means you were being rational.

Rationalize - attempt to explain or justify (one's own or another's behavior or attitude) with logical, plausible reasons, even if these are not true or appropriate.

Great Post 11:01pm about time someone told that Democrat windbag to man up.I for one am sick and frankly tired of his excuses for the party of divisiveness called the Democratic party.

jeebus discouraged dimwit, how dumb are you? planned parent indeed committed no crime. in fact the only people who ran into legal trouble were the makers of the bs "sting" video, for fraud.

It's really not about Dannie, per se, or any of our other under duh desk posters. It is about a political environment where facts matter not at all. The only thing that matters is party loyalty. When there are real choices in the political arena, it the conservative voter that divides its preferences. We saw that with Ross Perot. We saw that in the last election of Addie. We are seeing that today, with many conservatives splitting over Cruz and Trump. There is never any split in the Dannie segment. FreeStuff, dishonesty, and pandering to special interests (gays, teachers, blacks, immigrants) rules each and every day for them. The only people they don't suck up to is the middle class folks trying to pay their bills, support their kids, and live up to their responsibilities. With a $19Trillion dollar debt, the local hero advocates more spending, more FreeStuff, and more incentive for some to get drunk, stay home, make babies, and talk on their free Obama cell phones. The real question here is not what the dannies believe, as we already know. Donkey forever. The basic question is how long will the working people tolerate the purchase of votes with money taken from their families. More and more understandably give up. Dannie hopes enough keep working, stay dumb, and keep his FreeStuff coming in as usual. And after all that, they claim to love and respect their country. Yeah, ok.

I am late to the party so my comments are brief. I agree with the Mayor that people have this image that things are worse than they were. The media (and its hordes of commentators of all political stripes), using the immediacy of our new technology, tends to promote the sensational. While some people are worse off, the vast bulk of people have access to economic resources like no time in the past, including especially health care. Crime overall is at its lowest in decades. And this country is as secure as it has ever been.

Many of the problems in the country stems from a certain anti-government faction associated with the Republican Party. It is made up of angry individuals who can't accept the mixed-race, multi-cultural country we have become. But they can only obstruct progress, not stop it. Danny Francis speaks well on these matters and is honestly searching for and proposing solutions. His critics are moronic gnats providing nothing of polemic value.



rick aldrich, USMC said...

4:32 ; you are way far left of the truth. It's not about race or culture. That's the crap that select democrats keep running their mouth about. Its about lack of jobs, lack of respect, expanding socialism as a means to get votes, high taxes to pay for the social programs expansion. Do you think that maybe, just maybe, all these social programs, aimed at helping so many, are having an opposite effect on the people they are "designed " to help? I thought the American dream, was about a place where you could rise to the level, of your dreams- a job, a place to call home, a family , values,ambition a respect for law, and laws that respect you. These are being chipped away at, replaced by " we are victims", Woe is me, its somebody else's fault,that I have no ambition. And, if you do not see at least one example every day, you have your head buried up your hero's butt. Also, we have been multicultural and multiracial for many a year. So this baloney of yours doesn't hold water. It was your party that gave us the KKK. They were proud sponsors of your party for many a year. So, in closing, yes the country is in better shape, materialistically, but our morals, values, and outright respect, are in decline. The Democratic party, is the "spoiled child" party. It throws fits, tantrums, lies, and nastiness, just to get their way. Anyone who believes in truth, must be them mean old republicans. Your hero is about as "fair and balanced" as a seesaw with a kid on one end.

Oh yes, NY21underades, you go ahead and make the case where this nation needs more government. I'm with ya on that one. You just go for that one. I would expect that from you, a government employee who benefits from the corruption, the overspending, the lies, and the lack of accountability. Isn't your head getting sore banging on that table bottom?

And Mr Flush, I stand corrected. Yup, selling baby parts is just a neat way to do bidness. I'm with you. You just keep making points like that. Be proud.

I have never ever called "all Republicans racists, period.: That is a flat out and slanderous to boot. Many hold racist views and opinions and we could list them all day ... but you do the research... I'm not your lackey - may be your prime target but not your lackey.

I do leave you with this trip back down memory lane - for the brain dead who park and post here that is:

Many critics claim GOP politicians are blowing the proverbial"dog whistle," inaudibly appealing to their constituents' prejudices.

The same argument has been applied to almost every recent presidential election:

1. President Ronald Reagan was criticized for invoking the image of the welfare queen to imply that African Americans were lazy crooks who bilked the government.

2. President George H. W. Bush's infamous Willie Horton spot told the story of a black man who committed violent crimes while on furlough from prison, a move that critics say won Bush supporters by exploiting white Americans' fear of black crime.

3. Other Republicans in key positions have in the past praised former Sen. Strom Thurmond - who was as hardcore racist as they come and just to be fair yes, former Sen. Byrd (D-WV) was a Klan member.

Racism has not valid place in America, but it's here, big time nevertheless.

hermit thrush said...

why are you such a liar, discouraged? or is it that you're really dumb enough to think that pp "sells baby parts"? one never can quite be sure with you.

Anonymous said...

Planned Parenthood never sold any 'baby parts', nor have they. Though a couple of scumbag, republiturds tried to purchase some from them awhile back. They were both indicted shortly thereafter.
Completely unethical, amoral and ILLEGAL by those two miscreants. Of course when your standards are so low to begin with...

That doc was recorded as saying they got more for intact brains. You do the math, kepklap/NYunderstuff. And Dannie, you did. You were called on it at the time and did one of you hid. Denying in now is too late. You should retracted it at the time or apologized or called it simply a case of misspeaking. I don't think there would have been anyone who wouldn't have understood. But you didn't. Why? Because that tactic, calling the opposition racist, is central to Democratic party bs. You are the champs on that. And we all know how connected you are with party line thought. I will not stand back and be called a racist without defending myself. That puke of yours was a big mistake. And your ego prevents you from owning up to it, as it were.

Anonymous said...

Oh Dannie, about that Willie Horton guy you are so wet about. Isn't he the guy who was serving a life sentence for murder, then got out on a furlough, then raped while on "vacation"? That Willie Horton. And you feel it's unfair for a politician to speak of the policy that allowed this to happen? The rest of your bs is just that. Somewhere in that body of yours you have to have a backbone. Go get a free MRI and have someone look for it.

Anonymous said...

This is neat. Dannie, Klaptrap, and NYcrouched have no problem with the baby parts bidness, but criticize others for having low standards. By the way, the people involved with taping that were guilty of wiretapping without a permit. What the filmed was true. Imagine what the world would be like if liberals had their brains sold. I'm guessing the price would be a bit deflated.

hermit thrush said...

That doc was recorded as saying they got more for intact brains.

bullshit. no one said any such thing.

there was talk in the videos about intact organs, but nothing about "getting more" for them.

the videos prompted numerous investigations into planned parenthood, all of which turned out to be wild goose chases. pp was found to have done nothing wrong in every one.

the real question now is, why do you keep falling for bullshit like this? why are you such a dupe?

btw, the video makers were indicted for using fake driver's licenses "with the intent to defraud and harm another." you should try exerting the discipline to look things up sometime. i know it's a lot less fun than just running your mouth, but it might open you up to a whole new world.

Sorry heltflat, the doc says "they get more" for intact brains. It was a bad moment for people like you. I understand your desperate attempt to discredit that tape. They did go about it wrong, much like the guy who leaked all the secret stuff and is in prison. But the bottom line is, PP was selling the remains of aborted babies for profit, although they claimed it was only for expenses. The days where people like you can puke party nonsense without a rebuttal are over. You can lie all you want, but you will be called on it. I can only hope that your daughter aborts her baby, excuse me, fetus. We don't want that bloodline reproducing, as it were.

Don't bother asking republiturds to research their 'facts' before commenting, Hermit. You can't help those who follow an orange haired, unabashed liar, former dem, turned republican for political gain.

hermit thrush said...

you can repeat bullshit all you want, but it doesn't make it true, discouraged dipshit. just makes it smell worse. no one from pp ever said anything about getting more for intact brains. i can't prove it to you since it's impossible to prove a negative, but there's a simple way for you to clear it up. just post a link. should be easy as pie for such a fact-based guy like yourself.

... ha ha, just kidding! i'm sure that after all these years you're still too dumb to have figured out that whole copy-and-paste thing with web addresses, so don't sweat it. and plus there's the problem that what you're looking for doesn't exist. i feel for you, though.

here's what i'm really interested to know. up above you accused dan of being in "a political environment where facts matter not at all," and you bragged "I don't have to be concerned with defending lies, you do." yet you're the one who's been caught lying, or at least spreading bullshit. (i do tend to think it's more stupidity than lying with you, but maybe let's leave that for another time). one of your big claims about dan -- that pp committed a crime -- turns out be bullshit, and you're powerless to prove otherwise. at this point, after making such a big show about facts and lies and the like, a normal person would feel pretty embarrassed, and maybe even a little chastened. all these big, lurid claims you make, yet you can't provide a single bit of external evidence for them. how do you square that?
