I am an expert in the world of “Landscaping the Minnesota Home Grounds”. I am very good at it, better than I am playing “business” and making money. I enjoy this world extremely.
I have been a ‘teacher’ of something or another all of my adult life. Although I inherently feel great pleasure from recognizing products of my teaching, a pleasure which even supercedes the beauty from creating masterpiece settings for friends and clients, teaching was a path over which I never had a choice.
For one born to teach something or another there are a number of plagues such an automaton must endure. Occasionally or more often, a creature such as I, becomes a bore. Another is one cannot know all. Nor can one know truth for certain. One must develop a character, in the ideal, to remember that whatever one learns and teaches, one guesses with whatever opinions are shared with others.
Character might have had something to do with my drive “to know”. I did like Bible studies in Sunday School and had a Mother who never let me forget what good character might be……But, I must confess one of my greater horrors in life is the fear that I might be wrong. For that fear I point to the clever, well educated and teacher-talented old maid school teachers which populated my younger school life. They demanded knowledge from me, or else.
The more information a teacher amasses, it is likely the fewer mistakes will be made.
Most human animals attached to university are not good teachers. Some may be recognized and recognized accurately for their depth of knowledge. Although I did take advanced classes in botany working toward a graduate degree in horiculture, and at one time could lecture outlining each step of the Kreb’s cycle and identify certain plant species including fungi by studying cell structure via a microscope, my being begged for a broader life. Depth of knowledge, I early learned, needed breadth of knowledge for me to enjoy learning and living.
Those super expert in the sex lives of insects are needed in life. Alfred Kinsey was such a person. Rachel Carson was deeply romantic. Al Gore starred in a popular movie of fiction. All became false prophets.
I have no knowledge of import regarding anything in the mechanical world or the world of the computer. I do not know what an Ipod is. The aging brain has its limits, but to tell you the truth, if I were only 40 years old and entering the prime of my productive life, I wouldn’t be able to know anything mechanical either.
I have two sons. One saves me on the mechanical bit. The other one is much like me, but more talented.
One loses wishes as one passes into the “Death Panel” stages of life. At least this is my experience. But it should always be understood that whatever is said or written is an opinion. Some opinions are far more accurate than others.
I do not believe the moon is made of “blue cheese, ” I often warned my high school students, but I have never been there. Therefore I must trust certain writings and speakings of some folks over others.
Knowledge, more knowledge, and more and more knowledge a human being can amass makes it likely that the citizen will be better able to make better decisions in life regarding things that matter………
………but there is no guarantee. After all, look at what Al Gore hath wrought with his “Inconvenient Truth” distortions.
Think of what economic horrors the American Democrats and their Republican friends hath wrought is banning our American ability to produce our own energy…..if for no other reason than to keep us from being house maiden to those jihadists in Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen or Palestine, and the unfeminized energies of the Peoples Republic of China’s capitalistic dictatorship.
How do we, a bunch of girls, male and female, living in a world of juvenile giddyness brought up and propped up by priestesses both male and female, who program our young to worship themselves in baths and showers of self esteem for their single accomplishment of breathing? So that they can feel good! How female nutty can a culture get?
We live in a hostile and competitive world ………Others see our pleasures and palaces and are desirous of seizing them……..a normal Pavlovian response from most human animals……other animals as well.
This human drive, by the way, is the basic argument behind world Marxism……that by making each individual a mindless slave duty- bound to the Government Planners and their experts, Nirvana on Earth will be achieved. The human female is particularly drawn to this stage play. She is not the equal of the human male in drive for freedom, curiosity, inventiveness, and competitiveness with the same quotient for brutality in the background, despite Leftist-feminist propaganda and language control of political correctness.
It is a masculine drive to protect and defend the realm. American society has become too infected by female hysterias and hysterics resulting in political paralyses when the mind is buried under tons of emotion and make- believe.
We, are a peoples from the labors of our parents and the times in which they lived and got wealthy. As with so many families whose fathers, yes, fathers and not mothers, had become successful both in character and in wealth, so it happens in a culture that the question arises, “What is left for the sons of that family to do to satisfy their male drive to ‘succeed?” (The human female in democratic societies is seldom held responsible or as responsible because innately we know a culture is healthy when the male role is healthy. The male role is healthy only if the male himself is healthy and has been made healthy to protect his mate and family.
Our American male of 2011 has been made to act and think female…..with horrible consequences in a world bubbling with young masculine wannabees in the muslim world at one end of the block and the energetic billion of Chinese who have found themselves at the other end. (In the middle of the block we endure Hugo Chavez and his ‘smallpox’ plagues…..to say nothing of Brazil, Argentina and Mexico troubles).
We are a “Progressive” America run by Progressives, the ‘female’ of the American family. Security, incuriousness, comfort, chatter, control over the nest which had been built by the grandfather’s blood and sweat…..and a bit of granny’s as well would be the scene of a Norman Rockwell painting true to our time.
“No need for men” is taught at university and college. The language of female control is called “Political Correctness”. Beyond its boundaries the American “Big Mama” doesn’t want to hear or speak. It would make her feel bad.
The husband in this cohabitation (certainly not a marriage) has come from the old school where men were taught to be gentlemen. They were trained to yield to female wishes and to give them comfort and security, and so they did…..Republicans and Democrats, Catholic and Protestant, believers and non-believers alike.
Hysteria began to replace the mind. Hysteria moved into university, college, and school and became a religion.
The religion became Marxism. Government should rule the people, not serve them. Barack Hussein Obama, a product of the university bath of feminist Marxism, the only kind of bath he had ever had, would lead the Change.
President Obama is a product, not a creator of the culture which produced him. It is the culture which is suffering illness. Mr. Obama is easing Marxism into this already sick culture as a doctor gives a patient morphine to ease the pain.
Our America is in a horrendously scarry economic crisis. Its role as world banker is being sabotaged primarily by its own people within its own New Age culture…..It is led by Democrats and their welfare gifts. We have managed to bankrupt ourselves as so often occurs within second and third generation wealth in families who have forgotten how to create and earn it.
Worse, we have lost the religion which has built America and made the country the great civilization it created.
I don’t think we shall recover from the coming economic tsunami we are bound to face if this 112th Congress does not begin to reverse our bleeding from self inflicted wounds caused mostly by overspending and the social cancers it has created.
That the Democrat Party and its propagandists, even when meaning well, have been the hyena pack most responsible for the collapse of our country, its faith and its riches, its character is ABSOLUTELY TRUE. This reality is secondary, however to the one far more important problem……..and I repeat….that being….
Our America is nearly in a suicidal state caused by its overwhelming overspending causing the ruin of our dollar. I believe we haven’t yet seen the real storm if or when the world will begin to renounce the unstable dollar as the world’s basic currency.
If there is hope to avoid this economic catastrophe, it will begin with this Congress in Washington and in all of the State capitals throughout the country. It will need citizen help to keep it on track.
Yet, I must confess, I am not an economist. At one time 50 years or so ago I studied some economics. I remember in one class in a final exam of over 100 questions, the majority of my answers were wrong…..yet I got a B plus for the grade. Think about that and again, draw your own conclusions. I have drawn mine many times over.
I am curious, however. Although dyslexic as a child which cursed my life as a reader and viewer of fiction, I do read alot……the non-fiction stuff. You guys out there exercise this natural gift of curiosity within the human male animal….”Use it or lose it”….as they say. Besides ‘real’ women like that as some of you already have, no doubt, figured out.
