The Democrat Convention 2012

The Democrats are more wrong than the Republicans. What a surprise. Over several years they have continued to move to the political left and are now more properly identified as ultra-ultra liberal. I don't think there is any question that they have been encouraged by the most liberal President to come along since F.D.R.  This fellow, Barack Obama, isn't just another left-wing party politician like Bill Clinton or Harry Truman or  even, God forbid, Jimmy Carter.  Obama He is  a brilliant, radical, charismatic, orator with an agenda that leads to socialism/communism and big government.  He and the Democrats  are a disaster for America. 

Democrats  cater to the lowest sector of our citizens. They snuggle up to the poor, the disenfranchised, labor unions, and all of the other people looking for a free lunch.  These Democrats are the main abusers of federal money. They are the entitlement politicians  who set their own exorbitant salaries and control the electorate by dispensing government jobs - paid for with your tax dollars. They want to replace Americas' tradition of individual achievement, the free market, and our  traditional monetary system. And they do so by reducing liberty.

To accomplish this revolution they have to first make fundamental changes in our traditional way of life. That's exactly what Mr. Obama (and his administration) has done during his first term in office. To get support for this program they have to create the impression that the American system is "unfair", and our government favors the "rich", and ambition must be replaced by "total government control".

By definition this is an ultra-ultra left wing socialistiic package that replaces individual initiative with  government control of individual freedoms. It is anything but a viable way forward. It is truly the "road to serfdom".

The all-powerful government designs like President Obama and his administration are promoting . . . have failed where ever they have been adopted.  They are actually attempting to replace our exceptionally successful "democratic republic". . . . with a political system that does not work.

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…
