The Blessings by Being “Ruled” by the Brits

England itself is a tiny space on this globe.   It is  much smaller in size than our state of Minnesota.  Add Wales and Scotland to its domain as an island, this part of the United Kingdom is a tad larger than than Gopherland.

Serious invasions of this island began during Julius Caesar’s Roman ambitions before the age of Christ.  About a century later during the reign of Emperor Claudius, the island was revisited by the Romans in  battle, but never quite conquered.     The last time the island was invaded by battle was in AD1066 at the Battle of Hastings.  The invaders were Normans led by William “The Conqueror whose hordes managed to defeat the army of Saxon King Harold.   The Spanish attempted to invade the island in the late 16th Century, but failed primarily due to bad weather.

In our era, AD 2017 only a few nations on our Earth have been blessed with stable governments based primarily upon civil liberties, that mankind had certain God-given  rights to live a civilized life with dignity.   Great Britain, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, and not withstanding Nancy Pelosi, Charles Schumer and persons leftier, the United States of America.

(France is merely a pretender nation, Germany a forever dismembered one.)

All of these rather democratic nations speak English as their national language of communication.  They speak English, rather than Spanish,  French, Chinese, Russian, German or Swahili as the national language  because their lands were ‘conquered’ by the English, those folks who lived on that  small island that developed a  powerful  navy for four centuries of its “world” dominance…..four centuries,  with the exception of Spain’s Armada and Nazi Germany’s threat, free from invasions from the outside world once they had domain over Scotland on the home front.

These English also became religious with  their Protestantism.   With the exceptions of their internal squabbles, many brutal in any era, the sun never set on the British Empire…..Do read the following Prager U. article, IF YOU LIVE IN FREEDOM, THANK THE BRITISH EMPIRE!

My 65th Year Class Reunion

Tomorrow I shall be attending, God willing, my 65th year class reunion.

I was always an outsider among my classmates, indeed even among people in my neighborhood except adults.   Reviewing my past, I almost always have been  more comfortable alone, an observer, even though I like the human being as a species very much.  Generally,  I consider the human animal a miracle.

I liked adults because they knew so much back then.  I wanted to know what they knew.

I began attending these events at the 25th year class reunion but would stay only for dinner, a habit remindful of my school days.

These, what’s left of us, anyway, are good people.   They had parents.  They didn’t play with LSD, marijuana, or fire.  They went to Church, some even to synagogue when it meant something.   Some still do, I suspect even though the country has lost its way with Sanctuary Cities, 20,000,000 unAmericanized legal/illegal immigrants during the past eight years under the rule of a ‘foreigner’ unAmerican trained in communism and sold socialism illegally…..tearing the country apart.

Life expectancy in America has been dropping….even if we didn’t add in the illegals.  Yet among the grossest of industries, fraud and otherwise, is today’s American health industry.    Last year, at my age of 82,  I paid around $5,000, and the STATE paid at least $75,000 for a knee replacement surgery I wasn’t sure I needed.  It was recommended by responsible, honest, civilized people.  Who was I to argue.  I never had aching knees before, not even when I ran my 32 miles around a high school quarter mile track when in my 50s.

Do we 80 plus year olds  live in a better world today than in the early 1950s?

Well, we are still alive to the joy of some (family,  the living and perhaps the dead, depending on the cult) and the despair of others (Democrats, college trained feminazis and  feminists, black lives matter racist extremists, Somali and other such immigrants, Obamalings, the Putin Stalinists,  Red Chinese industrialists, North Korean ‘socialists’,  CNN, MSNBC, ABC, NBC, PBS, CBS and others who claim to be the  “fair and balanced ” people ordering us how to live in today’s United States of America.

I still work for a living.  I’m lucky.  I love what I do….except yesterday when I had to drive into busy  leftyville, Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Millions of entities, the living and the cars,  bikes, trucks, blockade signs, repairs, buses, professional beggars, politicos dominated public  human life corner after corner, block after block, and the Vikings weren’t even playng  football yet, where at stadiums some millionaires sit on their fannies while  fans stand listening  to modernists gargle or choke while ‘singing’ solo the nation’s National Anthem.

The rest of the country under age 50, especially the fascists from college seem to prefer to  choke on their own noise,  weed, and  opiates,  to be free from knowledge and an ability to differentiate the distance and characteristics  between good and evil.

I often wonder to  what degree  our generation of the mildly privileged, JudeoChristian ‘trained’, civilized middle class contributed to the disorders, the atheism, the undemocratic, unJudeoChristian  vulgarity and violence  of   American behaviors  of our day.   Where did we go wrong?

(I don’t think the topic will arise and be discussed.  We folks were trained to be polite and private.)

 

 

Fox Gurus Still Dancing Around Their Future? What’s “In Store”?

Virginia Democrats, Leftists up to Dirty Tricks Last Saturday?

Is Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe culpable in Charlottesville riot?

by James G. Robertson    at American Thinker:

“First things first: Police have arrested James Alex Fields and charged him with second-degree murder in the vehicular homicide of an Alt-Left protester in Charlottesville.  Assuming that a forensic investigation confirms the published videos of the vehicular homicide, that Fields is shown to be the driver, and that he is fairly convicted in a court of law beyond a reasonable doubt, he faces five to 40 years in prison, and he should get 40 years.

Saturday night, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the FBI has opened a civil rights investigation into the circumstances of the crime.  The FBI investigation faces a myriad of questions.  One of the most important is whether or not there were accessories, accomplices, or co-conspirators.

However, there are also much larger civil rights questions to be answered.  The questions begin at the mid-morning riot, when Alt-Left fascists attacked Unite The Right demonstrators, who had a legal permit to assemble at Emancipation Park.

The legal demonstration was scheduled to begin at noon, but the attacks began much earlier.  By 11:35 am, a Tweet from Charlottesville City Hall had declared the legal rally an unlawful assembly, and Governor Terry McAuliffe had declared a state of emergency.  The legal demonstrators were ordered to disperse.

And so the questions began.  At a Sunday morning press conference, Governor McAuliffe defended the police and began a parade of excuses, claiming that nothing could have been done to prevent “car terrorism.”  But his comments do not even begin to answer the questions…….”   Please continue reading below:

Who Has a Right to Enter the American Military?

Trey Gowdy’s comments on the military (in response to the transgender situation)……sent by Bruce Taber:

“Nobody has a “right” to serve in the Military. Nobody.

What makes people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer?
Very far from it.

The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too fat or too skinny, too tall or too short

Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers. Poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth.
Malnourished? Drug addiction? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ?
Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head?
Self-identify as a Unicorn?

Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can’t run the required course in the required time? Can’t do the required number of pushups?

Not really a “morning person” and refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be reasons for denial.

The Military has one job. War. Anything else is a distraction and a liability. Did someone just scream “That isn’t Fair”? War is VERY unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful.

YOU change yourself to meet Military standards. Not the other way around. I say again: You don’t change the Military… you must change yourself. The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to Win Wars.

If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… Thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors.

Who’s next in line?”

JESSE H. LYKKEN: An Obituary I Wish to Record Here

Jesse H. Lykken

Lykken, Jesse H. age 61, of Mpls, passed away peacefully at home on Nov. 24. Preceded in death by parents, David and Harriet, whom he missed every day. Survived by wife Veneta; children Laura (Pete Mattsson), Zeke, Jake, Roxie, and Ezra; granddaughter, Venisa; brothers, Joe, Jerry, and Matt; aunt Diane, and dozens of cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws from the Lykken, Erickson, Shepherd, Goehring, and Betts clans. Service 3 PM Dec. 10, Cremation Society, 4343 Nicollet Ave S., Mpls. Visitation one hour prior. Casual dress requested.

Published on December 3, 2016

I never got to know Jesse Lykken personally.   Actually I saw him only once in my life….at his parents’  dinner table an evening 45 years ago.   His  younger brother, Joey, and then his parents, Harriet and David, were the folks who drew me into the Lykken clan.

For about the tenth time in my life I was plotting this very afternoon to search for Jesse’s home address so I could meet him again with his own family to express my gratitude and thanks for knowing his parents, both of whom I knew well since the end of my high school teaching career.

Instead of finding his Harriet Avenue address, I discovered his above obituary from a newspaper.

Harriet and David were both learned  ‘liberals’ of all of the finest, most cherished  meanings I have ever known  applicable to that word…..a word in today’s language  has been used,  abused, captured,  capitalized and obliterated   by the political hate-America Left.

Their son, Joey, was an outstanding student those many years ago.   I was planning to ask Jesse to pass my best wishes on to him and his family before I met the grim reaper.

Jesse!  How could you have done his to me?
