Did God Go Somewhere?

The Democrat Party no longer represents America. It's been a tragedy to watch American traditions thrown into the trash for no reason other than the false promises of politicians who should know better. Mr. Obama has led the parade and he has played to the lowest common denominator of the Democrat Party, the unreasonable, illogical liberal left of their party.

The structure of our American political system was designed by fundamentally brilliant men. It was  intended to consist of an assembly of individual states operating independently and  held together by a federal government that managed those tasks beyond the scope and ability of the states. Those tasks were carefully enumerated and carefully limited. The idea was to restrict the power of the federal government, and at the same time guaranty the most individual freedoms possible. The aim:

The smallest amount of government interference - with the largest amount of individual freedoms.

The Democrat Party has left this exceptional format entirely. For the most recent 75 years it has  moved toward ultra left positions that promote a gigantic federal government, a reduction of states rights, and the severe restriction of individual liberties. Exactly what the founding fathers worked so hard to avoid.

The Republican Party has completely failed to off-set this movement toward ultra-liberalism. Americans are now faced with the fact that the principal two major political parties have become useless, our citizens have lost control, and greed and corruption have become the name of the game. In my view it is too late to save our exceptional America without a thorough overhaul of our government systems. I am reasonably certain that neither the Democratic or Republican Party is capable of this task.

This rant began when I discovered that, for the first time ever,  the Democrat Platform purposely omits any reference to GOD. 

Also for the first time in recent memory, the Democrat platform omits reassurance of America's special support of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and plays down our connection to insuring Israel's on-going existence.

Both of these issues are directly tied to President Obama's administration.

Both are disgusting reminders that the Democrats deserve power less than the Republicans.

We all know that there are serious problems with ou American political system. The federal government and national media have been telling us that we continue to lead the world in just about everything. Unfortunately, we do not. Measuring our status against other nations is difficult as it entails comparison of different attributes and characteristics. Comparisons are, at best, crude.  Surely, if we look, it's clear that America is no longer dominant among the world's communities. 

For decades following the 1929 economic depression, America has enriched foreign industries at the expense of our own. We have subsidized foreign military powers while allowing the depletion of our own. We've defended other nations borders while, at the same time, not defended our own. We've spent trillions of dollars to subsidize unworthy governments, and let our own infrastructure to fall into disrepair. 

The use of our economic power as a diplomatic tool may have been the correct thing to d…

Cruel and Thoughtless . . .

A disheartening situation has hit our family. A cousin, one that we don't know very well, has reached 93 years of age. Most of the Chapman family made it to the mid 80's, but Mary Lou Chapman has managed a few years more. And, she's not gone yet. Mary was unmarried her entire life. She grew up in a good home, was well educated, has always hd a good job, and has enjoyed pretty good health - until just a few years ago. While she is still very much alive, I sometimes speak in the past tense as if she had already died. Mary is either confused or in her own little world now. She began losing some of her sparkle a few years ago. At first it was mild memory loss, and then mild hearing loss, and then drifting in her speech as she lost track of what she wanted to say. Her Doctor said it was a mild dementia coming on with old age, and nothing to worry about yet. A few month's passed by before she began to have problems driving herself to the market and appointments and so forth,…

What Comes Next- And When

The speed of progress is astounding.  Watching television a few days ago I listened to Mark Cuban talk about subjects that I know little about. It was fascinating. He started with cars. Automatic cars. Driverless cars. Cars that think for themselves. All of which ended with a conversation about "artificial intelligence". Frankly, some of the discussion went right over my head. 
He began talking about the growth of computer knowledge and abilities that will result in the power to exponentially grow. Ultimately the amount of knowledge will exceed that of human beings. At that point "artificial intelligence" will control human beings. 

Mr. Cuban stopped there and asked "when this happens in the future, and it will, where will human beings fit in the composition of the universe".  
Several brilliant minds have been working on the answer but no consensus exists - except one. The transition from the dominance of human beings on earth will end will be be replaced b…
