The Strawman Over-Dose: An Adventure in Madness

The Strawman argument is nothing new. It’s present day use, however, often takes one on a journey of madness. A madness unlike any other in any place at any time – or so it seems as it goes on and on and on. Will the journey never end? I beg that it might.

I’m not sure where the modern liberal came from, but I certainly wish there was a recall on the current model. The hatred… the willingness to lie with such sense of righteousness… is all a bit much to experience as a daily (and nightly) diet, as they linger everywhere waiting to pounce and proclaim whatever nonsense is the nonsense for the day. Don’t they ever rest? Perhaps they could snuggle with the Strawman and take a nap – a long nap in the field of cognitive renewal.

It is interesting when one launches into a Strawman argument, is called on it and then suggests the person doesn’t know what one is. Either the launcher had no clue or thought he could “brain toy” his proposed victim into utter frustration and submission. He picked the wrong target.

The game is on and it appears there is a Strawman training camp among us. A camp where people are programmed with misinformation & willingness to deceive with the air of righteousness.

Politicians and media seem to be taking the Strawman method to a new level, making statement of fact what actually isn’t fact, but mere allegation or lie. Truth seems to be of little concern. Say it… get the thought out there to be spread… and fade back into the woodwork. However, it is turning back on them more and more each day.

One example of the media-in-Straw comes to us from The New York Times. The NYT stated there was a wiretap and apparently thinks we are to believe. However, when Trump claims there is one – the New York Times abruptly claims there wasn’t? (Does the New York Times realize it is calling itself a liar, if it calls Trump one?) An interesting piece on the topic is by Kevin Jackson, NY Times DENIES ITS OWN REPORTING on Trump Wiretaps.”

We continue to hear about the Russian Collusion. Such irony.

The investigations have not found ANY evidence of ANY collusion between Trump (or his campaign) and Russia. When that is pointed out to the the anti-Trump politician & media crowd, the response is usually something to the effect – “that’s why we need an investigation.”

Reminds me of that Einstein quote: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”.

Now that Trump has agreed he or his campaign was wiretapped, we have the faithful anti-Trump group demanding he provide proof by Monday, March 13th. I don’t understand. He asked for an investigation, but he is not allowed one? Immediately it is determined (without investigation) there was no wiretap because a couple of guys in the government said so? Why didn’t they say so before? Why didn’t they say it at the onset of the claim? Why did they wait until Trump said it?

The media provides us mostly with slams to Trump and anyone associated with him, with a few countering those allegations. So, who is telling the truth? It can’t be both ways.

It would be easy to write an essay on this topic of the new Strawman method that involves more than simply Trump. It’s everywhere. It’s an over-dose of unsubstantiated or known false claims in the media and hot off politicians’ lips. It’s definitely an adventure in madness. May truth hijack the journey and return the world to sanity!

The curious case of black advocates and MSM hatred for Dr. Ben Carson

By Lloyd Marcus

To you remaining black members of my family who take issue with me being an outspoken black conservative Republican, I ask you ponder the following. Comedian Arsenio Hall was known for his comedic bit, “Things That Make You Go Hmmm…” Well, here are a few facts regarding self proclaimed black advocates and the mainstream media’s disdain for Dr Ben Carson that make you go hmmm.

Summarizing, Dr Carson’s life is remarkable and inspirational. He grew up fatherless in the hood with his hardworking single mom. She turned off the TV and ordered Ben to read and give her written book reports. Though illiterate, Carson’s mom pretended to read his book reports. This troubled black kid from the hood overcame his demons and grew up to become a world renowned neurosurgeon. A movie was made about Dr Carson’s life titled, “Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story” starring Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr as Dr Carson. http://bit.ly/1SnKzLB

If Dr Martin Luther King, Jr were alive today, Dr Carson would epitomize his dream of blacks (Negros) being proud dignified contributors to society in America. So why does Black Lives Matter, the mainstream media, the NAACP and the Democratic Party despise and seek to destroy Dr Carson? Since entering the race for the White House, self-proclaimed black advocates and media launched an all-out no-tactic-or-lie-is-too-low campaign to knock Dr Carson out of the race for president. http://bit.ly/1MVpfJK

But guess who supposed advocates for black empowerment rallied behind and transformed into heroic icons of civil rights? The answer is black criminals; Treyvon Martin, Michael Brown and Freddie Gray. Keep in mind that the supposed advocates for blacks that I mentioned hate Dr Carson. Shouldn’t that make a thinking black person go hmmm?

The Black Lives Matter movement was founded on the lie that a white cop shot Michael Brown while surrendering with his hands up. Based on the evidence, Brown robbed a convenience store, assaulted the clerk http://bit.ly/1PSbIsj and was shot attacking a cop inside his police car. Brown was trying to take the officer’s gun. http://bit.ly/1NymQKy

And yet, the mainstream media and Democrats ignored the grand jury’s report and continues to promote the lie that Brown was gunned down by a racist white cop while on his way to his grandma’s house. Black Lives Matter, mainstream media and other so-called black advocates persist in ignoring facts; such as in only 35 years 324,000 blacks have been killed by fellow blacks. As a matter of fact, 93% of blacks are killed by other blacks. http://bit.ly/1NSDXRE Racist white cops “ain’t” the problem y’all.

Drug dealer Freddie Gray had a record as long as your arm. http://bit.ly/1lOh0bM Treyvon Martin was also a prolific thug. http://bit.ly/1NgbZmG So again I ask, why would so-called advocates for black empowerment make saints of black criminals while relentlessly attempting to demonize Dr Carson?

Dr Carson’s path of education, hard work, Christian faith and right choices led him to extraordinary success and possibly even the Oval Office. Martin, Brown and Gray’s criminal choices made them menaces to society and led to their early deaths. Wouldn’t true black advocates encourage black youths to mimic Dr Carson rather that elevating criminals Martin, Brown and Gray to black superstar status?

Common sense tells us that self proclaimed black advocates and the mainstream media obviously have another agenda other than their stated justice/empowerment for blacks.

The truth is these slime-ball so-called black advocates and media hacks do not give a rats’ derriere about blacks. If they did, they would honestly deal with the self-induced issues plaguing the black community; epidemic school dropouts, drug abuse, black on black crime and out-of-wedlock births. But no, black advocates and media would rather blame conservatives, Republicans and white America.

Black Lives Matter, mainstream media and Democrats want blacks to conclude that Martin, Brown and Gray were the products of being victimized by racist white America; particularly conservatives and Republicans. That is a lie. Life is about choices. Circumstances tend to reveal who you are inside.

My 87 year old black dad also grew up poor and fatherless in the Baltimore hood. As a little boy, Dad chose to earn money shining shoes on weekends at the Greyhound Bus Station. One of his buddies chose crime; two kids in similar circumstances making different choices. Dad was taught responsibility at an early age. I could hear the pride in dad’s voice as he told me how he spent his first earnings. Out of $1.25 he made one weekend, dad paid rent to Aunt Nee, took in a movie with candy and popcorn and purchased a t-shirt. Dad bragged to a friend, “Yeah man, I’m buyin’ my own clothes now.”

I heard through the family grapevine that some relatives are embarrassed by me publicly proclaiming that blacks are not victims of racist America. To them I say, “Sorry guys, but we are not.” My goodness, all one has to do is look around.

Racism along with every other sin will exist until Jesus returns. However, the notion that blacks are suffering, held back, routinely murdered by cops and victimized by “white privilege” is absurd. These narratives are manipulative tools to keep blacks voting for Democrats. Suckered blacks believe voting for Democrats will keep racist white America and Republicans at bay. After 50 years of voting for Democrats, black life continues to spiral downward in cites controlled by Democrats. http://bit.ly/1jnIsey

Blacks from the hood like my dad and Dr Carson who achieve their American dreams contradict the Democrats’ and mainstream media’s it-sucks-to-be-black-in-America story line. The undeniable truth is the American dream is alive and well for all who choose to go for it. The only real stumbling block for blacks is Obama’s economy. http://nws.mx/1Pg3mup

So why has the mainstream media sacrificed its journalistic principles to help Democrats win black votes? The answer is the media and Democrats are on the same page; socialist/progressive – both desire an America in which the majority is dependent upon and controlled by a tyrannical big government. Oh and both have a bug up their derriere about Christians. Democrats and mainstream media will vehemently deny it, but it is true.

In essence, elitist mainstream media and Democrats want George Orwell’s novel “1984” – a nation of supplicants subservient to Big Brother. These truths should make logical thinkers go hmmm.

Truth Ignored: Foreboding & Rambling Whispers

Night Shadows 26 cby Carrie K. Hutchens

The shadows follow into the night, brushing against the moment and cloaking in a chill of foreboding and rambling whispers.

A lone star mocks.

A chirp betrays.

A breeze moans.

Darkness dances and whirls in a haunting silence — the tune long forgotten — the steps mimicking and purposeless.

A fox cringes.

A bird soars in terror.

A cloud wanders.

A town sits alone and frightened in its despair of life that was, but now only memories burning and bitter in hopelessness.

Yesterday calls.

The night cries.

A tree falters.

The shadows follow into the night, brushing against the moment and cloaking in a chill of foreboding and rambling whispers, as the blasts come closer… closer… closer… until they are heard no more.

Hillary Clinton Thinks Lying Is Funny?

by Carrie K. Hutchens * Friday, April 04, 2008 * Dakota Voice

Hillary Clinton 3 Hillary Clinton thinks it is all a big joke that she lied? She thinks it is funny? So funny that she tells Jay Leno on the Tonight Show that she was afraid she wouldn’t make it to the studio because she was pinned down by sniper fire? And this is a person running for president?

Did Hillary also think it was funny when Zeifman is said to have fired her and one of the reasons claimed was for lying? (“Shocking Revelations about Hillary Clinton’s Watergate Committee Job” by Rick Moran – April 2, 2008 and More on Hillary’s Unethical Watergate Conduct by Bob Ellis – April 3, 2008 .)

There is something wrong with someone that can get caught lying and then go on television and try to make it a comedy routine. Lying should bring feelings such as regret and shame — not light-heartedness, laughter and the attitude of, “Yep, I lied. Hehe isn’t that funny? You caught me! Hehe oh my side hurts from laughing so hard. Want to hear another one?”

People need to take a step back and give this matter some serious thought.

Parents need to consider how they would feel if their child lied and then acted like it was a joking matter — something to brag about. Employees need to consider how they would feel if a co-worker or boss lied. What if it was a teacher, minister, police officer, or doctor? Wouldn’t there be a trust issue? Wouldn’t people note the inappropriate reaction to being caught in a lie and wonder what was wrong with the person?

Hillary Clinton has been caught lying on numerous occasions but it seems that she has never had to pay a price she thought serious enough to stop her. As a matter of fact, she apparently thinks it is all so funny that she performed her little comedy routine on television. I wonder if she will be taking that routine on the road soon? Oh… never mind. I forgot. She did that first!

Hillary Clinton Lies About Bosnia Sniper Fire: Bill Blames Media

by Carrie K. Hutchens * Friday, April 11, 2008 * Dakota Voice

Hillary ClintonI woke up to a clip of Bill Clinton blaming the media for what he considers unjust coverage of Hillary’s “misstatement” of the 1995 Bosnia trip. Poor Hillary, it was late at night, he claims. Besides the fact that the trip was in 1996, rather than 1995, he had some other facts wrong, too.

Hillary made the sniper fire statement on more than one occasion, contrary to his claim of once and at 11 at night when she was supposedly tired. But, of course, it wasn’t his fault he brought it up again, or that Hillary lied in the first place — it was all the fault of the media.

Speaking of confusing the facts when it is late at night — if Hillary gets that confused at 11 PM, just how confused is she going to be at 3 AM when that phone rings?

Then we have Bill, who apparently can’t get things right in the light of day, yet he has no hesitation blaming the media for worrying about it or reporting it. How dare they? That’s unfair coverage according to Clinton it would seem.

The Clintons also suggest that Hillary was the only first lady since Eleanor Roosevelt to visit a combat zone. Guess Pat Nixon and Barbara Bush don’t count. Maybe the Clintons meant to say the only “Democrat” first lady and it just “slipped their minds” to add that little added description.

Bill did give me an additional chuckle. He suggests when others get to be 60 (which Hillary is) that they might forget something when they are tired at 11 P.M., too. Is he saying, that at 60, people start getting to be feeble-minded and we should over-look their forgetfulness on major issues — like being shot at? Yep, I want a feeble-minded president that confuses smiles, hand shakes, welcomes and a little girl’s poem with sniper fire and need to duck and run immediately to waiting vehicles.

Did I mention that if Hillary gets THAT confused at 11 PM, we might have concern about a 3 AM call? Oh well… never mind, I’m sure if she gets too confused, it will be the media’s fault and she can always go talk to Jay Leno about it.

In A Fury of Pure Hatred

burned buildingScreams pierce the night, as sirens wail against the blasts that light up the darkness in a fury of pure hatred.  Smoke smothers the air.  People seek to flee, running in desperation, but with no destination, except away… away from the blasts and the stench of burning flesh.

How long?  How long has there been warning unheeded?  Warning mocked as mere delusions of some?  How long has the laughter rolled from the lips of the all-knowing and all-enlightened ones?  Does it now matter?

Hearts pumping wildly as sweat flows freely.  Blasts closer and closer.  Breathing loud and labored against the sounds of people stampeding in blind flight.  Away.  Away from the nightmare and the murder surrounding and encircling.  The nightmare devouring hope, with lungs fighting frantically for the next breath.  Just one more breath.  The breath that doesn’t come.  The awareness of suffocation. 

The terror.  The tears.  The prayers.

Suffocating.  Falling.  Numbness.  Nothingness.

A silence that no one hears.

The Icy Chill

Photo by: Carrie K. Hutchens

Photo by: Carrie K. Hutchens

The icy chill of winter, clinging beyond its time, mocks and dances against the lonely night of darkness where no friendly voice speaks and no hopeful hand rests.

The chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embraces and suffocates.

Cries begging for mercy race to the heavens, as man drags still another unwilling soul into the pit of vile corruption that seeks to crush and devour.

The chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embraces and suffocates.

A hopeful challenge sings against the confusion, with no one to listen and few to remember the days when the world was not encouraged to sink into the incomprehension of utter insanity.

The chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embraces and suffocates.

Madness and rage erupt into boiling lava of confused hate and lost reason, as the masses seek to feast upon the spirit of all others not they or theirs.

The chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embraces and suffocates.

A dream, or a nightmare, there was a moment… a moment somewhere within time… a moment touched with a vague sense of humanity and good purpose.

The chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embraces and suffocates.

Where… where did those moments of a dream go?  Did they travel far or just beyond the glimpse of a horizon hidden?

Did the chill… the darkness… the hopelessness embrace and suffocate all hope of a tomorrow to be as once was? 

The answers await within the night not present.  Only in a distant tomorrow will the truth be revealed to survivors of the icy chill that dances within the darkness where no friendly voice speaks and no hopeful hand rests. 

The saved or the damned?  Only they shall know as they emerge into whatever has become.

The Dark Idol of Enlightenment

demonIn anger I defy you, oh mighty thief of all good that has ever been.  You are a vile creature, who mocks and insults, for your empty vessel has nothing more to offer the moment either then or now or even yesterday.

I walk away from the ignorance of your ways, but you continue to follow and bay in tune with the idol of your thought core-center.  The noise so maddening, yet to you so sweet and pure.

The sickness flows from your programmed mouth, as your eyes flicker in dullness and a cloud of blinding obedience to the one who feeds the senses of pure hate and vile pleasure.

You suggest to live in enlightenment and I in the dark ages of old.  Yet, it is you whose fire has been extinguished with nothing left of self within or beyond.  Your spirit gone, you now exist obedient to they — the master of the flesh.  A master who knows no loyalty nor mercy.  A master who mocks and devours all who dare to call him friend.  For, he has no friends by intent… only fools who feed the beast in delightful ignorance that they, too, have an expiration date stamped upon their fate and no choices left to make.

I’m in a really bad mood…

grumpyYesterday, I was quite ticked off because I truly don’t like people writing to me and suggesting that those who are somewhat like-minded with me are something I know for a fact they are not!  Oh, that really ticks me off.  Not that you would ever guess.

But… it didn’t begin there… nor does it end there.

Not long ago, I was suspended from a site.  I received one thing that said I needed to agree not to do something anymore.  Problem was… I hadn’t done it in the first place.  And, for various reasons, I wasn’t about to confess to something I did not do.  Like… if I had taken the easy way out just to get back on the site — it would have been on record that I said I wouldn’t do it anymore?  Duh, the false confession could later be used against me with someone saying I had admitted to doing it prior, regardless of the fact I really hadn’t ever done the deed (in question) ever

Let’s put it this way…

I would rather never be on that site again, than to say I did something I did not do!

Needless to say, I don’t believe in false confessions.  Oh, did I say that already?

Nevertheless, I wrote to the site in question and they did let me back on, but it sounded as though they still thought I did whatever because their system supposedly said whatever it was it said.  On the other hand, I wondered if they had gone and taken a “physical” look, which would have shown what I was saying was true.  Maybe they even found out there is a flaw that the bad people figured out and used to their advantage to get rid of the opposition?  (The latter being what I think actually happened – the radicals and silencers found the flaw & were using it to their advantage.)

Then we come to today.  I started out the day finding I’m suspended from still another place.  (I wish I could say who.  Maybe later, I will.)  Once again, I am at the mercy of a group that can’t (or won’t) tell me specifics, but can hold me accountable for what I have no ability to control, even if it did happen.  But what if it didn’t… or what if it was a setup because I had ticked someone off?  After all, I do write and I do tick off radical liberals quite often, don’t I?

Might they set me up for punishment?

Naw!  They wouldn’t do something like that, would they?

 

Oh, that ticks me off…

madI just love it when people send P.R. (propaganda) mail and call me names or otherwise insult me in their little pep talk aimed at getting money from me , no less.  I guess I’m supposed to be one of their Zombie followers or too stupid to get that I’ve been insulted or that insulting me will make me feel I must be wrong and must rush over and become a Zombie, too.  Who knows.  Who cares?  Whatever they are thinking — they are WRONG!

It reads:  “We are the largest grassroots movement organizing every day to knock down those roadblocks, one by one.”

They call people in Congress — who are actually representing their constituents — roadblocks?

They are going to knock them down one by one?  Really?  And just what’s the plan?  How are they going to do that?  Will they pull a Harry Reid on the roadblock Congress people?  You know… throw some “misinformation” out there about the person, in an attempt to challenge his or her credibility?

It goes on…”We have an aggressive plan for the months ahead — that’s because building the kind of organization that can stand up to the powerful interests and the obstruction -focused members of Congress takes a lot of grassroots power.”

Takes a lot of arrogance, too.

The “powerful interests” in this situation happens to be you and me and anyone else that is a citizen.  People have spoken and some Congress members are actually doing what they are supposed to be doing — LISTENING & ACTING ON THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE.  Then we have this grassroots group that is going to aggressively knock down any of these Congress members who have dared represent their districts… who have dared represent US and our wishes?

Am I to be impressed or something?

Oh… oh… and then they put… “Since we launched ___, we haven’t slowed down.  You’re the reason for that…”

Beg pardon?

I’m what?

I think they have mistaken me for someone else.  I deserve no credit for their existence or anything they have done or attempted to do, nor do I want any.  As a matter of fact, I consider their efforts to be insulting to the American citizens and representative of nothing more than “Bully Power”!

Government isn’t supposed to be a playground with everyone going around, “Let’s pretend this is true…” or “Let’s pretend these are the facts…” or “Let’s pretend I’m the good guy and you are the bad guy…”  This is REAL LIFE and REAL LIVE PEOPLE are being affected by decisions being made.  Needless to say — the games need to stop!  The games need to stop and people need to take a REAL look at what is taking place right in their face!

The “roadblocks” are Congressmen & Women, who are listening and responding to those they are representing.  How dare anyone suggest to remove them one by one.  That sounds like a threat!

Oh, that ticks me off…

Wrestling the Bull: Nothing to See Here & Nothing to Worry About

Wrestling the bullOh bull, Big Brothers & Sisters, Aunts & Uncles & even watching Cousins, too!  Nothing to see and nothing to worry about?  Yeah right.  I’m sure you would never fib to us, the American citizens.  Naw!… you’d never do that.  You’d also never target the Tea Party, Conservatives, Christian and Jewish organizations either.  Ooops, I guess the sheep is out of the bag on that one with the IRS.  Gives us a great deal of reason to trust you — NOT!

I can just hear it.

Yes, we lied to you the other 50,000 times, but we aren’t lying to you now.  This time, we are telling the truth.  And that is supposed to give confidence — why?

I think the politicians and other government people have been drinking some funny water.  Their rationalizing ability seems a bit dizzy and doesn’t stand up too well in the real world of common sense.

Nothing to see here and nothing to worry about?  Some would beg to differ!  Obviously, no matter how many times the propaganda spins, it’s becoming quite plain that there’s plenty that needs to be seen and a great deal to worry about!

Customer Service Being Trained to Drive the Population Mad?

stressedI’m not going to name the company in question, because, for the most part, their customer service has been quite good, but they are now driving me crazy… Crazy… CRazy… CRAzy… CRAZy… CRAZY!  Did I mention that they are driving me a bit crazy?

I was asked to contact said company to verify a text was, in fact, sent by them because there are the fake emails and texts that attempt to get people to fall into traps and taps and identity theft and all kinds of not so good things.

First question was to the effect, “Was the text from your company and did this action take place?”

It wasn’t.

Oh… never mind…

It was.

I was then asked to verify what the account holder needed to do to comply with the changes involved.  That is when the total ride of crazy went from bad to badder to worse to, “Oh, please, dear God, let me off of this ride of maddening madness.”

I was given answers to questions I never asked.

When a “yes” or “no” answer would have been the perfect one — added (and unresponsive) information was included that muddied up the water still again.

Some of the responses seemed to include a third step, while others sounded like it was a mere two-stepper.  I was trying to clarify whether we did have a two- sie or a three-sie and if we had the latter — how did we do the extra three-sie step?

One response was to say something to the effect of doing that questionable step, which includes… (the other two thingies I was asking about).

“Which includes…” ????  Use of the term “which includes” means the person was — whether they meant to or not — saying there were three steps and still without explaining how that one step could be done.

I said I was done.  They weren’t.  I received still another email (today) providing unnecessary and unrequested directions.  The actual question and its answer? Well, they are apparently floating around somewhere out there in the Twilight Zone, as I prepare to take a padded cell vacation from the customer service experience from Hades!

I’d be embarrassed if…

embarrassedI’d be quite embarrassed if I woke up one morning and realized that what I thought and was thinking and believed was actually what someone else decided I should be thinking and believing.

I’d be quite embarrassed if I couldn’t think rationally or detect truth from fiction though the evidence was right in front of me and left no room for doubt.

I’d be embarrassed if I couldn’t think for myself or employ the concept of simple problem solving that didn’t involve possible plans for government takeover of even replacing the toilet paper in private bathrooms.

I’d be quite embarrassed if I couldn’t review information and give it a chance to be what it is, rather than what I perceived it to be due to being programmed to think as “one” with all other “thought clones“.

Yes, I would be embarrassed if I woke up one morning and found myself to have been indoctrinated into believing the propaganda of the liars.

Yet, I watch all these people on televison and the internet proudly following the lies as though the lies are the gospel truth.  And then… and then… they — the “thought clones” — have the gall to call others (who don’t blindly follow & still use their own brains) stupid and idiots and racists and intolerant and haters and whatever other bully-like term they can think of (or is thought of for them and sent via the talking points memo).

Yes, I’d be totally embarrassed if I gave up reality and my ability to process thoughts and information.

Maybe there is a good reason why I would be embarrassed and the “thought clones” aren’t.  Maybe it’s because I can still see and respond to reality, while they gave it up for progressivism and the fulfillment of the Animal Farm and 1984 prophecy!
