Volume Three, Chapter Nine: A Post-GOP America?

The United States face a guaranteed U.S. economic collapse. Sure, a reduction in government spending and citizens tightening their own damned belts could avoid it. But people aren’t going to volunteer to do it. So, bring on the wrecking ball. In the end, America could be a Democrat dystopia.

American progressives really don’t want to rule the world. As long as they can remain slum lords here in America, they’ll gladly cede the task of handling the lowly masses over to China (not the Arabs; those people are too, well…).  Their voters, used to and enjoying having their lives dictated by others as long as they can engage whatever impulse hits them, will go right along as well.

The current Republican Party is made up of older people getting what they can while they can, and getting gone. The Tea Party shills in 2014 were Christian Coalition groupies in 1994. They joyfully voted in the Establishment GOP they loathe and deny any connection to now. If they truly believed in “LESS GOVERNMENT!”, they would have tried to remove federal involvement in marriage, thus avoiding the battle that hurt them the most.

Neither conservative faction has a younger voting base. They seem to be reverting to middle-aged teenagers as well, with epic rants and no youth outreach. But unlike progressives, they have no one to continue their battle, such as it is. And so, after years of warnings to it, the entire GOP will indeed fall with the U. S. dollar. This will see the U.S. hit rock bottom… the ONLY place the nation can build from.

The collapse of the dollar will probably happen in our lifetime. What happens afterward may play out for decades afterward. But by the time the dust settles, should America somehow avoid other nations chopping it up, all the pressing social issues will be done with. After all, it will be a matter of survival. But America won’t have a World War to boost its economy. It will require the will to make it collectively.

That means rhetorical flame throwers sitting on their money, talking revolution and never actually fighting one, will finally be jettisoned. There will be no room nor need for them. The tribalism will be gone, too; you can’t argue and beg over money and sympathy that isn’t there to be had. If America’s going to make it, yes, it may be socially liberal, but it will have to be fiscally conservative.

That means folks can do what they do, but only on their own dime… if they have a dime. That means there won’t be time made for phony outrage over things one’s probably had people doing around them all along. And above all else, the things most people think matter will be revealed as the nothings they are. Germany and Japan had to start all over after World War II; inevitably, so will America.

Volume Three, Chapter Five: Random Thoughts

Alright, I realize I’m running way behind, and I apologize. I pulled the previous edition because… well, sir, I didn’t like it.  Since I’ve got a lot of stuff to choose from, I’ll just go with a “random thoughts” version.

Freedom to discriminate laws do not compensate for a lack of coping or social skills. The gay wedding cake baker may be cracking gay jokes or buying Chik-Fil-A with the money, or simply tell somebody they’re booked up. Another one just unknowingly baked a wedding cake for a drug dealer. And by the way, with such a law, a Church of Christ cab driver can refuse to take your grandma to choir practice. Business is tricky, isn’t it?

Chris Anderson, Chattanooga’s first openly gay City Councilman, is facing recall. In a room with ten people, would any of his district’s voters actually recognize him? He’s a Democrat, and that was all he needed to get their vote. How can he stop the shootings in Alton Park when it’s a voter’s grandson pulling the trigger? Everybody seems to want solutions, as long as they’re not named as part of the problem.

Kobe Bryant blasphemed against Afrocentric Groupthink. If  Trayvon Martin was walking around in a hoodie marcher’s neighborhood, he’d have been arrested. Somebody Black would have probably called the police. The same culture that demands you defend somebody who looks like you will stand by and let you get killed by somebody that looks like you. Afrocentric culture has produced plenty of prisoners, and not a single President.

To be sure, Jesse and ’em ain’t the only Groupthink slaves. In WWE, you don’t kill a story line if it’s still drawing money and ratings. Groupthinkers LOVE drama, and spend money on and for it. Politicians and the media know this all too well. It’s not coincidental same-sex marriage is being handled on a stately basis. Groupthinkers are naturally manipulative, but the media and politicians are much better at it.

ObamaCare reaches 6M enrolments… or does it? If this thing was such a resounding success, why is it the only testimonials in its favor are coming from anonymous Yahoo! comments? Or people with preexisting conditions? Or kids still on their parents’ insurance? And what constitutes an “enrollment”? It’s not “RACISM!” to ask things like this. I can’t imagine somebody buying a house without at least knowing the address.

Here’s the world’s surest weight-loss plan. The main reason I’m so late posting anything is because I recently purged the hell out of my Facebook page. (I use Twitter like twice a year, so it’s not an issue.) If somebody spends all damned day talking about Teabaggers or Libtards , I’m not trying to hear it. So how do I deal with my haters? No Dr. Farrah Gray meme or book needed; I just don’t deal.

I’m glad I grew up jugging. One good thing about being Black, gay, and having voted Republican is you can take some damned hits. You pretty much have to. If it weren’t for jugging (“Your mama” jokes), I’d only be able to surround myself with people who I unconditionally agree with. Having never met such a person, I’d end up with maybe three actual friends and a million Facebook ones.

Why am I a Deist? Because I like meat, especially pork. Atheists inexplicably believe and know the Bible better than Billy Graham or Jack Van Impe. Churches now worship either the so-called first Black President or the Founding Fathers (I seldom even quote Thomas Paine). And I can’t figure out which denomination is the right one. Besides, I refuse to pay monthly tithes for the MainStream News Believers’ Church of the Fellowship of Xtians.

“Do right because it’s right, not because you’re compelled to.” My late principal, Brother James Warren, said that everyday at school announcements. I can’t stand all this superficial symbolic sh*t that seems to be en vogue. Don’t do positive things for others in hopes of Facebook likes or admiration. Just be straight up with folks. It’s easier than keeping a lie straight.

All right, there’s the updated blog. Next time, it’ll be time to do the blog I’ve been wanting to do for a LONG time…

Volume Two, Chapter Eleven: MORE Senstitivity Issues

I though this was it for Volume Two, but the hits just keep on coming.

Last posting, it was all about Cultural Senstitivity Week. It began a news cycle centered around virtually every little niche of society airing their grievances with everybody else. Well, the beat goes on. White Hispanic George Zimmerman’s trial for killing Black teen Trayvon Martin is still drawing huge attention for some reason. The immigration reform battles in Washington are now full scale. In addition, the celebrity and scholastic realms have had some culturally insenstitive riptides, too.

The biggest meltdown is easily the trials and tribulations of Southern-fried Obamaite Paula Deen. Another white female recently sued her for racial discrimination. Soon, the press began to unveil years of Deen using culturally insenstitive language, the most recent occurrence being two years ago (the target of that particular “RACISM!” never sued, but now he probably will). Her teary, mascara-smeared apologies have brought her under the tutelage of identity politician par excellence, Reverend Jesse Jackson. Between the massive endorsement boycotts and departure from the Food Network, and Jesse’s toxic touch, Ms. Deen is now the entree.

Volatile actor Alec Baldwin recently called an antagonist male reporter a “queen”, which is  “HOMOPHOBIA!”  Conservative groups, among whom several are also gay, are demanding Baldwin be fired as a spokesman for credit card company Capital One. Their main beef is not the homophobic remarks themselves, but rather the blatant double standard of leftists, who crucify conservatives for anti-gay language. Little do they realize that an apology, a little spare change, and a collective hatred of conservatism heals all LGBTetc.  activist wounds inflicted by their fellow leftists. And nobody’s forgot how much cash they just raised and spent unsuccessfully fighting same-sex marriage while snubbing gay conservative groups. Such people are often their staunchest supporters, despite the vile flack they get from other gay people.

The Democratic Party is built on its multitude of victim groups. Afrocentric Blacks were the preeminent victims from the New Deal until 2008, when the Black community helped pass California’s Proposition 8, banning same-sex marriages. Since then, the LGBTetc. crowd has taken their victim status. On his and Tavis Smiley’s radio broadcast, Afrocentric professor Dr. Cornel West lamented the status loss. Despite LGBTetc. thought police GLAAD’s best attempts  to defuse the situation, Dr. West is actually repeating a refrain commonly heard in Afrocentric circles; he was just wise enough to temper his words to avoid GLAAD’s wrath.

Multitudes of subcultures only gather to fight a common enemy or exalt a common social deity, then revert right back to tribalism. Fundamentalists routinely dominate the conservative GayPatriot come time to rail against Democrats, and stick around to condemn same-sex marriage (If homosexuality is so wrong, you’d think they’d avoid a site called GayPatriot.) Blatant racists comfortably appear at gatherings for Black conservatives like those for Project 21. And because they’re seeking favor with even the lowest common denominator in a political party, they (as well as the Democrat subcultures) have to sit back and take all kinds of sh*t. The highest price of multiculturalism/identity politics of this type will always be your own dignity. 

Contrary to popular belief, most people are not like the MSNBC, Centric, or conservative talk show crowds, who are ultimately whores guided by political or cultural tribalism. Ask the Republican Party. Many White males, their most loyal voting bloc, refused to vote Republican on the 2012 Election Day rather than be associated with fools like GayPatriot’s token religionist, JMan1961. Ask the Afrocentric crowd, who have seen fellow Black people like Tommy Sotomayor and James David Manning become popular by ridiculing Afrocentrism’s guttural culture. Ask the LGBTetc. activist crowd how a guy like Kevin Dujan can openly take on the dubious antics of the “Great Society for Tolerance”.  And ask the Democratic Party if their inculcation is universal. According  to current multicultural doctrine, the Black Derrick “TMOT” Grayson and lesbian Lori Heine are default Democrats and “atheists”.  Instead, both are Christian Libertarians who tend to call out any problem on both far sides of the social spectrum.

In the 2012 Presidential election, 140M people voted. The total United States is 310M. In other words, not even half of the American population allows the political and cultural happenings to dictate their lives. If you’ve already got your mind made up to live a certain way, politics, especially identity politics, have virtually no effect on you. Blind adherence to a “great cause” has led to the rise of many dictators. With such behavior taking place in America,  it’s those who don’t unilaterally adhere to a political or social agenda that are the only wall between true freedom and Balkanization… or worse, apartheid.

Alright, that’s about enough of the whole senstitivity issue. Seeing as though I’m a Black, gay, moderate, Libertarian Deist, I don’t have all damned year to sort out my official niche. And that’s fine, since I tend to reason things out better as simply Douglas Wayne Tipton, anyhow. Next posting will ABSOLUTELY be the Volume Two finale. It’ll involve several guys called… Vince. But in closing, I’d like to bring back a 2012 op-ed found in, ironically, the New York Times, from one of the most universally insenstitive people of all time….
