Some People Never Learn

Every year it is the same thing -- the people whining and complaining about the crooked and inept Democrats -- and saying they should withhold their votes in the next election.

But then, nobody is offering to run against the incumbent and they expect the Republican Party to offer them a choice, and when nobody does run, they don't think it is up to them to do something about it, but up to the Republican Party or somebody else to do something FOR them -- so that they can continue to do NOTHING but whine and complain about their "choices.".

The people of Hawaii still don't get "democracy." It's about running your own lives, and not about choosing somebody to do all your thinking for you, and then telling you what to do, and voting for that person to make it a "democracy."

Democracy is about assuming that responsibility -- and not merely demanding all one's rights and entitlements demagogues will promise them to get their vote -- and then get as much money as they can for themselves.

What do you expect? The schools seem to play a leading role in cultivating this “disconnect” of education from reality -- encouraging the notion that “right” means to go along with everybody else’s thinking, and it is “wrong” to do one’s own thinking and go against the crowd. And that is why political correctness has become the tyranny of these times -- when it not kings we must obey, but this tyranny of thought.

And though the newspapers and other media like to portray themselves as the overseeing Fourth Estate that determines “objectivity,” they are no more immune from the sway of the crowd than everybody else, who were biased by that same education -- of merely obeying authority, and never questioning it, and inquiring even beyond into how things could be done otherwise.

All that is “taught” is how to go along to get along -- and if it hasn’t been before, then it won’t be in the future, so don’t even think about it. But that is the importance of a real education -- and not just the indoctrination of the teachers and their union which is the core of the Democratic Party, because they want to believe they are “democratic” personalities rather than very authoritarian ones.

Thus, “democracy” has become this “authoritarianism” because it sounds nicer and more politically correct -- than calling it as it is. But nobody is allowed to question and consider otherwise -- because that would not be politically correct.

But you can whine and complain all you want -- as long as you do absolutely nothing else about it.

Over the Rainbow

Hey, it looks like some Hawaii people are starting to catch on.

Those liberal groups don't exist to eliminate the problems for which they're raising money for -- but to raise money exploiting the causes for which they're raising money for.

So getting rid of these problems is obviously not what they're going to do -- but to create/perpetuate as many of them as they possibly can.

Maybe there's hope for Hawaii after all. Nah, the newspapers are going to do as many "public service announcements" masquerading as news as ever. There's the editor carrying their banner for them right now. They're usually the first to be fooled -- by all those "extra lunches" their favorite lawmakers/lobbyists just happen to be delivering to them right now.

You wonder how the checks and balances can become so corrupted in Hawaii so that citizens are rallying in support of causes against their own best interests -- including the full-time bloggers who have dedicated their lives to spreading misinformation.

Of course far and away the all-time Hawaii favorite has been “doing it for the keiki,” as though that alone was enough to justify and rationalize the most egregious corruptions and distortions, as the cultural blackbox. If things don’t make sense to adults, as adults, then appealing to the emotionalism of their tortured childhoods of deprivation and depravation, is the surefire winner among a people who have never learned to think for themselves, and in fact, growing up in Hawaii, meant the highest devotion and trust to one’s superiors (elders). Such blind devotion was deliberately cultivated, and then ruthlessly exploited by at first the most ruthless of the politicians, and then, was fair game by everyone.

As such, real sentiments and authentic feelings about these universal rights, became special interest entitlements -- under the guise of being for the keiki -- even their own junkets to Disney World, so that they could relate that significance to their charges yet to discover the vast world they could only hope to experience vicariously through self-designated others, like themselves, and other media anointed celebrities.

That was the importance of the media in such a plan but they “botched” it and thought talent was totally unnecessary anymore --that all they had to do was fake it, bluster it, intimidate it, and nobody would look behind the curtain to see who was manipulating the vast machinery that projected such awesome powers and abilities to dictate and fulfill everyone’s fondest desires -- especially for that longing of that perfect childhood in paradise, everybody was “entitled” to.
