The Dumbing Up of America

We have long heard the phrase “The dumbing down of America” to describe the effort of the Democratic Party to indoctrinate, under-educate, immigrate and acclimate, to influence the coming elections to favor the Democrat candidates.

Usually, when we think about this process we tend to imagine it to be the poorly-educated, illegal aliens, the huddled masses who dwell generationally at the bottom of the prosperity chain looking for someone to blame their plight on.

And such a movement does exist in those echelons as the “progressive” wing of the DemocraticParty strives to tilt the playing field by hook, crook or numbers until they have achieved an unbeatable majority at the polls.

What has actually slipped through the back door is the “dumbing up of America,” a movement which is aimed at the supposedly “best and the brightest” who populate the universities and colleges which have, for all practical purposes and intents, been taken over by the flower child generation of professors who are atheists, socialists, ultra-liberal intelligentsia who feel guilty that America is the most successful nation on the face of the earth.

If you stop and remember, the most harmful espionage in modern times was purported by a gaggle of British Traitors known as the “Cambridge Five”, Cambridge being considered as one of the world’s greatest universities.

Kim Philby, Donald Maclean, Guy Burgess, Anthony Blunt and John Cairncross were recruited by Soviet Intelligence while they were at Cambridge in the 1930s after which they all went on to careers in the British government, and so valuable was the information they passed on, they were known in the KGB as the “Magnificent Five.”

I use the above only to emphasize how very vulnerable young people are at that stage of their lives and many of them - unfortunately - fall for the fallacies they constantly hear from their professors, that socialism is the epitome of political systems, the only fair and equitable remedy to the unfairness capitalism has inflicted on mankind and that income redistribution and government-run social services are the ultimate answers to all society’s unfair woes.

I won’t go into the abject misery communism has wrought on the human race, one only has to look around at Russia, Eastern Europe, Venezuela et al to see the wreckage and carnage, which the professors conveniently, always leave out.

Just before beginning the writing of this piece I read an outline of Bernie Sanders plan for paying for social programs he would adopt if he becomes president, and, it’s easy, for even a minimally educated hillbilly like me, to see that there is no way on earth that his taxing, confiscating, regulating and basically controlling the industry in America would ever pay for the multi-trillion-dollar programs he proposes.

For one thing, there would be very little wealth left in the country to confiscate because the day after he won the election, money would fly out of this country to safe havens like Switzerland and other offshore financial facilities well before his inauguration.

Also, there would be much less industry to control as manufacturing would begin a mass exodus taking millions of jobs with them.

Bernie Sanders would begin his presidency with the worst depression this nation has ever known already in full stride.

And by the way, one of his “savings” would be massive cuts in the military budget, and in this day of challenge and danger, well, you figure it out.

The Green New Deal alone would break the bank.

But the problem with the dumbing down and dumbing up is that the people involved don’t realize that the money for all this “free stuff” has to come from somewhere and after exhausting the wealthy and chasing industry out of the country, where does it come from?

Out of the pockets of whoever is left, including the deceived, who will curse Bernie Sanders and socialism, but all too late.

America, as they knew it, will be gone, bankrupt, in unpayable debt, with a depressed and angry population.

Oh, and by the way, a revolution will be impossible, unless you want to use slingshots and baseball bats, cause Bernie done got your guns.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops our police and the peace of Jerusalem. 

God Bless America

Not On My Watch
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie, Comrade Bernie is coming for your guns and everything else that one million Americans have died for in many wars and millions more have paid uncountable costs in pain & suffering fighting for. Unfortunately my watch will will be over one of these days, but as long as I have breath I will posses. I hope & pray that some of the younger people truly realize what blessings and freedoms the God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob have give to this great country before it is to late, and as you stated sir if the democrats win it will be to late.....nuff said God Bless Plowboy

Dumbing Up
I’m 65, remember Vietnam well. I totally agree with Mr. Daniels. To comment further my 64 year old wife is a supervisor in a deli; several college age kids “work” (I say that lightly as they are very unreliable) with her part-time. My wife’s told me that the (she calls them kids) care “only” for the fact they own a cell phone, and have money to party. Yes, they have student debt and “think” Bernie will bail them out, not realizing of course, that as a buffer to Bernie the GOP could reclaim the House; thus Bernie would pass nothing. But their professors aren’t telling them that, or anything else about real life. It’s all one big party on the backs of mom & dad & then of hard working Americans after that. They can’t be bothered by working, have zero work ethic & few, if any goals. Bernie’s counting on these kid’s vote to cross the finish line. Very sad.

That sums up America. Dumb and Dumber.

I agree 110% on Bernie Sanders. Let’s not forget about the implosion of the U.S.S.R. or the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics, North Korea became a Hitler style dictatorship.

Yesterday's tornadoes.
Is everyone ok??? Is your property ok?? *NOTE* We're good here. No damage on Charlie's property that we know of, Tornado did wipe out 2 gas stations and a Wendy's about 4 miles from his house.

Donald Trump supports socialism.
Using eminent domain for oil pipelines, supposedly to serve the general public, is an act of socialism. -- Tru Cola

Responding to Bradley
Speaking of North Korea, here's something ironic. Marx called religion an "opiate". Kim Jong Un is worshiped as a god. -- Tru Cola

The professors are just one of the factors.
“And by the way, one of his 'savings' would be massive cuts in the military budget, and in this day of challenge and danger, well, you figure it out.”. Is Russia trying to make America its post-Soviet satellite? -- Tru Cola

Scary thought
You're right Charlie indeed a scary thought. I can't believe that our beautiful country would go that far, but I agree we are closer than ever. One saving thought is our country is unique from those other communist takeovers, that's our arms/weapons. The great Ted Nugent said when asked how would a civil war turn out between the right & left, he said "Let me tell you the right has several billion rounds of ammo and the left can't figure out what bathroom to use!" He said I have a pretty good idea who will win!

Thank you Charlie, for saying what I have tried to say. You have a much bigger audience and I appreciate you putting this out there. I agree with you 100%!

Fitting song for you
Please listen to the Kohnny Freedom (Marty Robbins) song “Ain’t I Right”. It was a Vietnam protest but still very fitting today (about politicians & communism etc). Would be nice if you brought the song back to life.
