Lutheran Airlines Returns

I discovered Lutheran Airlines about six years ago.  The video wasn’t as artistically developed  then as you see it below.   But the Swedish Lutheran ‘lyrics’ are exactly the same.

I  was  born, raised, and educated in Minnesota,  a very lucky location for the condition of my 81 years of life.  I am one of those guys imprisoned by the land in which he was born.  It’s an animal thing probably no longer experienced by modern leftist Americans…..the love of soil and what soil produces.

Farming used to be a family matter here in my life time.  Minneapolis was home for Lutherans, mostly  the Swedish  and Norwegian variety.   St. Paul, where I was born and raised was a Roman Catholic diocese city, a more rowdy  crowd  run by its  Germans and Irish.

Outstate, all that farm and forest country and the towns which served it, were settled  by Germans, both Lutheran and Roman Catholic varieties,  Swedes and Norse.   Up northeast  in iron ore country  Slavs, Poles, Russians, Slovaks, Czechs, Italians, Ukrainians settled to work the mines….you name the Eastern European, they were there living there.   Each and every group had its  own Church each with  their own  language to preach Christian goodness.   As at home in Europe,  Finlanders lived in the deep and deeper woods building their own world far from outside interference.   Theirs was a matriarchal society in those woods, but I never learned why such a case?     Folks were civilized then…..they were Godfearing.

My own mother’s family was German, most of them only first or second generation American.  They spoke their native language  only during major family gatherings.  All of my mother’s older generation relatives spoke German.   My great-grandmother Kraft who lived on the St. Paul’s German ‘west side’, active all of her life,  never spoke a word of English.   She understood English, responded in action and conversation  to English words, but was  never  heard by anyone in the family to utter anything verbal  beyond  her own German.   Family conversations on the matter were quite frequent.    She died in 1948, at age 98.

My dad had family who came over on the Mayflower.

Of all the accents our Minnesota English served, I loved the Scandinavian best.  Scandinavians were super cool customers. Most were Swedish.  They never seemed to be upset.   There was no way anyone could dislike them…..Their Swedish accents were so amusing to hear, one begged to extend the aural  entertainment by maneuvering conversation to elicit   more  response.

Of one hundred who have listened to this particular recording, ten have registered their dislike of it.    How can that be?…..so do listen to this magnificent Minnesota verbal music of my lifetime until about forty years ago when it all disappeared:


Why No Data at Prager University Regarding Black Racism?

Today’s  political racists  in America declare and preach at university racism can only occur among  white populations.   Nothing could be further from the truth.

Relative to its population in our United States, the color of the most racist group in America today is BLACK, including  whatever colors being black includes.       Those who profit politically, religiously, economically from this dominant racist group are often led by their political allies in Washington who bribe those urban tribes with national and/or local  government hand outs  for votes.

Racism today in our American republic is OVERWHELMING BLACK ….both in culture and politics as well as in violent cross racial crime.

Black racism is the leftist  political and moral disorder which allows political blacks of  the  Congressional Black Caucus to ban whites from their sacred midst.

Black racism is the leftist racism which determines the current American English vocabulary  to define any and all offspring resulting from interracial marriage as “Black”, no matter how unblack they might appear…..or how they  personally prefer to be identified.

Preaching  black racism has  also  become extremely  popular among  university leftist social scientists ‘educators’,   especially from those of the  feminist, gay and lesbian, latino  communities  programmed by the left to feel wounded by the nation’s democratic nature.

Perhaps someday Prager University will present a five minute program to expose  America’s black racism habits,  protected, nurtured, programmed, and executed by  leftist antiAmerican  academic  tyrants dolled up in any color  or kind of body and/or mind their fickle Marxist moods  permit.

Please spend a few  minutes to learn more about statistics, truth, about alleged racism in our beloved America, a brief lecture by conservative Larry Elder.  Please count the seconds devoted to exposing  the nature of black racism techniques:



Cruz Shared A More Truthful View Regarding New York City Values

GOP Hopefuls: Confronting ‘New York Values’ Is Key to Saving the USA

By JOHN ZMIRAK        (article sent by Mark Waldeland)

It started off as a throwaway line, what Ted Cruz said about “New York values”— an echo of old political shorthand like “San Francisco values,” a phrase which encodes as much or as little as the audience that hears it chooses. But Donald Trump took public umbrage at this remark, and blew it sky high at the GOP debate by invoking the heroism of cops and firemen on 9/11, to the roaring approval of the Charleston, S.C. audience — and even of Sen. Cruz, an expert debater, who applauded Trump’s brilliant chess move.

Online, pundits at conservative venues such as National Review and Commentary (both New York City-based) grumbled at Cruz and reluctantly sided with Trump. The normally sensible Texan Kevin Williamson warned in a Tweet that in bashing New York, Cruz risked offending “everyone who lives in a city.” Cruz quickly backed off, and on his face you could almost see a red line striking three words out of a printed speech forever.

Not so fast, Republicans. Granted, the line itself may be more liability than asset in a national election, but as a native New Yorker who loves the place, who worked and scraped to live there for most of his life, I can tell you that New York City, no less than Detroit, is a rich mine of insights on how not to govern anyplace, anywhere, ever. The ideology that rules the Five Boroughs is a laundry list of toxic political correctness. If you’re not willing to criticize the “values” that prevail in New York City, which America’s elite (who mostly live there) are busily stuffing down the throats of the rest of the country, then you have no business running for office as a Republican. It’s time to go Texan or go home.

What do we mean by “New York values”? Not the courage of first responders and stoicism of stunned civilians, that got us through the day of burning towers and the months of the smell of death in 2001. Public servants are equally brave in every city in America, and citizens from Sandy Hook to San Bernardino pull together after disasters.

We don’t mean the grudging, good-humored tolerance that keeps us from strangling each other on crowded subways, or even the crackpot determination to live without a driver’s license, whatever the cost in rent, taxes, or troubles. (I got my license at age 36, and still prefer using Uber, even in Dallas.)

We don’t mean the courage and civic-mindedness of recent Chinese immigrants, who gathered in Queens last year to protest loudly and mostly in Mandarin against Mayor de Blasio’s placement of a homeless center for drug addicts smack-dab in their working class neighborhood.

We don’t mean Archbishop Fulton Sheen, or Tony Bennett or William F. Buckley or Norman Podhoretz. We don’t mean Wall Street, or Broadway.

We mean the policies and politicians that New Yorkers inflict on themselves, and the social attitudes that they use their vast influence to impose on the rest of America. A city as naturally rich, with as many inbuilt advantages as New York, has only just barely survived collapse several times (in the mid-70s, then again in the early 90s) thanks to those policies. They would break any lesser city and if they are not contained they will devastate America, leaving only a few wealthy enclaves intact — including, no doubt, Manhattan. The rich we will always have with us.

The mayor of New York City is radical leftist Bill de Blasio, who in the 1980s went to Nicaragua to help the Sandinistas impose their totalitarian system on that hapless country. Imagine if some conservative city elected a former volunteer for South Africa’s apartheid government… you can’t, can you? We don’t do that sort of thing, but New York liberals do, with a blasé chuckle. It’s par for the course. New York is a city where:

  • More black babies are aborted than are born. In fact, its abortion rate is one of the highest in America.
  • Pro-life pregnancy centers are targeted by the city and the state, constantly harassed, and always fighting in court to keep their doors open.
  • It’s illegal even to ask a potential employee if he has a criminal record.
  • Police are no longer permitted to stop and frisk potential suspects — a practice that helped slash New York’s once staggering murder rate, and saved thousands of black and Latino lives.
  • Al Sharpton is taken seriously as a “community leader.”
  • The authorities will no longer focus on mosques as potential terror centers.
  • Refusing to accept an employee’s “transgender” fantasies, and let him use the ladies’ locker room, can earn you a $250,000 fine.
  • The teachers unions which elected De Blasio won’t let the city remove abusive instructors from public schools, sometimes for years. Instead, such teachers collect their full salaries while sitting in “rubber rooms,” doing crossword puzzles or surfing the Internet.
  • There is a state income tax, a city income tax, and a special “unincorporated business tax” that targets hard-pressed freelancers.
  • The gay lobby is so powerful that the Catholic archbishop threw in the towel, and let sex activists march in the St. Patrick’s Day parade, which marks the conversion of Ireland to Christianity.

Let me clue you in on a secret about New York: There aren’t so many New Yorkers there — not natives, anyway. Every year the place is flooded by ambitious valedictorians from all across the country who are fleeing their “small-minded” home towns or want to make it big in “The City.” That limitless demand for housing, which remains in fixed supply, has exactly the effect on its price that you might expect.

With a few elite exceptions, the public schools are outright unusable — chaotic holding tanks for juvie and Riker’s Island. So for each child you hope to raise in your small house or apartment, figure in the cost of 12 years of private school. The nuns are mostly gone, so Catholic schools aren’t as cheap as they used to be, but their underpaid, hard-working teachers are still the backbone of education in New York City.

The city is run by the renters, so landlords and home builders are harried by outdated rules such as rent control and “stabilization,” and a truly crackpot law grants “squatters’ rights” to anyone who stays on your couch for more than a couple weeks — so be careful in your choice of house guests.

Kennedy Airport makes New York City a border town as much as Brownsville, TX, and our country’s refusal to deport illegals or even check immigrants’ visas means that New York’s welfare rolls and hospitals are constantly flooded with recent arrivals from Afghanistan and Honduras. Who foots the bill to deliver their anchor babies? The hapless taxpayers of New York.

Those who grew up there get squeezed out, priced out, taxed out, and at the first chance flee to the suburbs, as both of my sisters did. The middle and working class whites who elected Mayor Rudolph Giuliani just in time to save the City from David Dinkin’s Democrat crime wave have largely relocated to Long Island. Left behind are the valedictorians; the middle class who bought their homes back before a one-family house in an ugly, distant neighborhood cost $1 million; the people in rent-fixed apartments who’d be crazy ever to move; and the millions in public housing who largely live on the dole.

This is not the model our Founders had in mind for a sustainable republic, and it’s not the place that ought to be setting the trend for America. It’s a wonderful, unique city that can only survive in a weird symbiosis with a stodgier, saner hinterland that reins in its excesses. Republicans who emerge from the New York milieu, such as Nelson Rockefeller, John Lindsay, Rudolph Giuliani, Michael Bloomberg (now an independent), and New Jersey’s Chris Christie, ought not to set the tone for the national party. Even New Yorkers know that. We count on the rest of the country to save us from ourselves.
