The NFL Should Have Never Called Off the Bengals/Bills Game: Woke values are attacking the core of American lifestyles

You gotta know what kind of fight we are fighting and how the enemy is fighting it. I said it the night of the big football game that the NFL should have never called off the event during the first quarter when Damar Hamlin had a heart attack on the field after a tackle made. The Cincinnati Bengals game with the Buffalo Bills was an event of big consequences; both teams were fighting for a top seed in the upcoming playoffs and are two of the best teams in the NFL. I wasn’t at that particular game, but I knew a lot of people who were, and I know they looked forward to it all weekend and were prepared to spend many thousands of dollars to enjoy it. But after Bill’s safety, Hamlin made a big hit; he collapsed on the field unconscious and it looked very scary. It turned out to be a heart attack, and CPR was performed on him in the middle of the Cincinnati stadium, with more than 70,000 people on hand watching and millions more seeing it on live television. After some time went on and they could remove the player from the field, the NFL called the game off, astonishingly, and the night was over as far as football, Monday Night Football at that. I thought it was a terrible decision by the NFL, a terribly woke one. It wasn’t a decision that would help Damar Hamlin, and it would ruin the playoff picture for many teams. The NFL would end up canceling the game for the year, which makes it terrible for all the teams competing because now, suddenly, the two best teams are going into the playoffs playing one less game for the year. That’s not fair to anybody. 

Obviously, the NFL is sensitive to all the attacks on them by woke elements of society, that the sport is too violent, that it’s a gladiator sport that exploits young people for the entertainment of everyone else. The pressure from pressure groups regarding concussion protocols is behind just about everything the NFL does these days, but everyone must understand that those concerns are not about safety. They are exploited that way, but their intent is just to attack another element of American society by trying to change the values we have for it. Such as, in this Bengals/Bills game, one deadly injury is suddenly bigger than the game itself and the playoffs and all the fans in the stands cheering them on. By the modern woke rules of anti-American sentiment, like many things are poised against American activities in business and entertainment, safety is the new club to ruin our country disguised as helpful but maliciously introduced to freeze unknowing executives into satisfying radical elements of society toward compliance. The NFL executives knew that if they played the game after removing Hamlin, the media would have a field day of criticism, which they have experienced several times this past season, especially regarding the Miami Dolphins quarterback who passed out frighteningly, essentially being knocked out for the season. Yes, football is a violent sport; everyone knows that going in. The players get paid a lot of money because of that risk to their lives and health, and fans know what they are watching. But the pressure groups are trying to change that, and the result is bad press for the NFL as a corporate product, and as we all know by now, the attacks against America have been to erode away the values of our corporations, especially in our entertainment culture. 

The result was sickening. I’ve been a first responder for the last three decades and have seen more than a fair share of terrible things happening to people, just as scary as Damar Hamlin experienced. The NFL has thousands of employees who are on a very public stage all the time. Statistically, there will always be strange things that happen, such as 24-year-old kids who have heart attacks that shouldn’t happen to anybody under 50. We will likely learn that the Covid shot the NFL forced on many of the young players has increased their risk of these kinds of things, and for liability reasons, the NFL is very sensitive to their blame for harming the health of so many young people. So they overplayed their hand. Then again, the pressure to force players to take the Covid shot came from the same radical, anti-American elements who were behind the government push and were behind pushing for players not to stand for the National Anthem. Watching the players stand around Damar Hamlin was embarrassing; these were young people raised in a coddled society by all these woke public school elements who were visibly shaken by the experience. And they shouldn’t have been. Bad things happen, and part of the game of football is managing bad things to a successful conclusion, whether inclement weather, physical injury or the pressure of rivalries. To see all these big, tough, young people crying on the field over a heart attack victim was very embarrassing, then to hear the media report that condition as a value. The players should be stoically valiant and supportive of each other through strength. Instead, weakness, sadness, and even panic were featured in the news coverage and looked bad to an equally sensitive audience. Because of the pressure groups, the NFL had to send the world a message that their individual players were bigger than the game, and they put safety and security as the number one priority, so they called off the game.

Even worse, we are dealing with entertainment unions here, and you know what I say about those, which is true. All labor unions are communist organizations, as envisioned by Karl Marx. They are anti-American in their design and are meant to threaten work stoppages to leverage shared protections for workers, which they exploit as ground troops in a different kind of war, in this case, against capitalism and the economy of America. And the labor union has its members always poised against management, and the concussion protocols have forced the NFL to really soften the game to satisfy these radical leftist elements. On camera, we have seen violent conditions before, especially compound fractures. I remember a Super Bowl in which the Bengals were in, where a grotesque injury occurred. The Super Bowl didn’t stop playing. They carted the guy off the field and resumed play as they should have. But over the years, the players union has softened up its members to align with the big leftist radicals in the media who are fully intent on changing the way Americans value things; it’s just another approach to the ESG madness. And for the first time that I can remember, especially regarding such a big game, the NFL caved to those radical elements and called off a game, which set a dangerous precedent. American football is not like the European soccer game; part of the appeal is toughness and fighting through adversity, even fear. And those are the very elements that are attacking the NFL product, through the players union, through liberal media, through regulations that force mandated vaccines that feature safety and security over victory and accomplishment. And for that reason alone, the NFL should have never called off that football game. Because the battle is bigger than the people involved, and when injuries happen, take care of those people the best you can. But the show, as is a motto in America on many fronts, must go on, always.

The Police Extortion of the Cincinnati Bengals: Communist labor unions always expect “the rich” to pay for their mismanagment

For me, and this has always been the case, there is a limit to how much of the thin blue line I’m willing to pay for. We need police in our society; we can’t function without them. We should not defund the police as Democrats have suggested. But when you are dealing with public sector unions that always want to expand government, “defund” is not an open checkbook that is beyond the reach of management. Throwing infinite amounts of money at police or any government employee is a bad idea. Society should pay for the police and to pay for them well. But not infinitely.

Traditionally, when police or fire employees insist that they always receive more money, they say, but we run into fires, we run into gunfire, so you don’t have to. I will volunteer to run into a burning building to save a dog any day of the week. I will gladly engage with a dangerous group of shooters any day of the week, any hour of the day. And I’d do it without pay because I would look at something like that as fun. So I’m not a big fan of that argument. Yes, police work is dangerous. But those who get into it understand that. It’s a privilege to wear the badge. The community should support the police enthusiastically. We should all live by the laws of our society, constitutionally supported. But the arguments of pay, such as what Dan Hils did on 55 KRC with Brian Thomas, is an exploitation of the standard union point of view, which is always communist in nature, to attempt to argue more pay in all the ways that the police unions expect it. There is a limit to what police are worth. When an FOP president makes the case from an obvious liberal point of view to a radio talk show host who is typically a small government kind of guy, it makes for an interesting debate that often hides in the cracks of our society.

Everyone knows I’m not a big fan of the Cincinnati Bengals. My favorite team is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it has been since Mike Brown fired Sam Wyche as the head coach. My support of Wyche went with him to Tampa from Cincinnati, and I have never forgiven the Brown family for that firing. They are losers as NFL owners. They run a bad organization that does not represent the city well. Sure they went to the Super Bowl last year because they have really good players. But over the years, they don’t know how to close the deal, and if they win, it’s usually because they get lucky and the other teams overlook them. But I don’t like this Billionaire Bengals talk from the FOP president, Dan Hils. I also have to remind people that every labor union in America started as a communist idea. Every entertainment union, government sector union, and union that runs some manufacturing aspect are all Karl Marx’s products. With Trump he’s a former Democrat who has opened up the tent of the Republican Party to include labor unions. In politics, there are many viewpoints, and people often don’t get everything they want. So it’s worth discussing unions’ problems with the same people who now consider themselves MAGA Republicans. With that in mind, all this talk about the Bengals paying double time and triple time for traffic staff before and after games is a perfect example of how the same people who will talk about saving money with taxes on one topic find themselves nodding in agreement with Dan Hils on the extortion racket being played out with the Cincinnati Bengals and talked about on the air as if the Bengals should pay whatever it costs for safety because they have the money and can afford to. Just because someone like Dan Hils, from the perspective of a communist police union, thinks that the Bengals are rich, does that mean they should be obligated to pay some artificial value for more traffic cops at Bengal games? 

I go to Bengal games a few times a year, and I prefer the great seats when I go. When I arrive, it’s usually where the player entrance is, so I get to see all the security they have at these games from that point of view, and there is a lot of police there—a lot of security. I tend to think that the Bengals should hire their own security for their own events. But as Dan Hils points out on Brian Thomas’ broadcast, the Bengals can’t pay for their security on a city street leading to and from the stadium. Those are city streets, and the police union has it rigged so that only they can provide traffic services. It’s the same kind of mess that you deal with at any union where tasks are placed in silos, and restrictions to productivity are also associated with the labor assigned to that task. For instance, you might have a box of pencils sitting on a dock meant for the office area. But the unionized dock workers are on a break, or have called off work for the day. Or maybe they are on strike. So there sits the box of pencils. The office people need them. They can look through the window into the dock and see the pencils sitting there. But they are not allowed to go in and pick them up so they can get their pencils. They have to wait for the union to perform the task. That is the kind of political game the Cincinnati FOP has going on regarding city streets leading to and from the stadium. Because the unionized police want a monopoly on the work, they complain that the work just can’t get done because they don’t have the staffing or the money. But the Bengals aren’t allowed to provide a solution. Or perhaps the people attending the games might volunteer to help direct traffic. They are prevented from helping because they are not lawfully permitted to perform that task. 

Spoken like a true communist union president, Dan Hils places all the blame on the Billionaire Bengals because they are rich and can afford to pay whatever the members of the Thin Blue Line require. But the Bengals’ options are to use Dan Hils unionized employees at rates of double time or triple time to pay for the mismanagement of the police force in general at whatever cost they decide. Rather than hiring their own people at $15 per hour or less to perform a task that is only worth minimum wage for a few hours on a Sunday to keep people from running into each other. And because we are politically on a path to support the police no matter the cost, someone like Brian Thomas, who is a small government guy, gets pulled into a discussion about defending a government union’s ridiculous extortion racket. And from the perspective of Dan Hils, his argument is that the Reds pay for the security, as to other sports events in the downtown area. So why don’t the Bengals pay too? Well, because the police union is forcing a customer to pay for goods and services that they control exclusively, and they expect to pass their mismanagement off as an undisputed bill, which is ridiculous. The police are great to have, but I don’t like their labor unions. I’d volunteer to help the police if there weren’t so many dumb rules that keep people from helping them. In many ways, they create their own problems by forcing restrictions on themselves and then expect a community to pay for their mismanagement of financial resources. And at a certain point, when they ask for too much, the community should just get rid of them and form their own law enforcement that doesn’t have a union attached to it. And my argument would be that it would work far better and be a whole lot cheaper. Just because rich people can afford to pay, that’s not up to Dan Hils to decide. It’s up to market values to determine, and the FOP of Cincinnati clearly isn’t interested in that kind of discussion. They are just like everyone else; they want the most money possible for the least work produced. It’s up to management in all cases to determine the value of that ratio.

A Man Who Gets Divorced Loses Leadership Ability: What is wrong with Tom Brady

I haven’t talked about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a while because, honestly, the world is at war, and who really cares about NFL football? But this story is about Tom Brady, who almost everyone agrees is the best football player of all time. His marriage, his retirement, and why the Bucs aren’t as good on the field as they are on paper is an interesting study on the impact of good leadership on any culture, whether it be business, entertainment, or politics. What Tom Brady is going through is a good baseline for just how important leadership is to any culture. He has traditionally been the best on a football field not because he is the strongest, fastest, tallest, or most creative, but because he has a way of making the people around him better, which is why he’s been in so many Super Bowls and Championship games and won many of them. And when that leadership isn’t working, it’s obvious why. So with the Bucs at 3 and 3 at the point of this article is not over for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. They are playing in the weak NFC South division, so they are still in first place even though the Bucs should have won close games against Kansas City, Green Bay, and Pittsburg. But they lost those games because they were simply outplayed, and it’s quite clear that the team is distracted by Tom Brady, his retirement status, his marriage trouble, and his general age. It has to be tough to be 45 years old and playing with a bunch of kids who are 25 years old, old enough to be his own kids. And the head coaches are all the same age or even younger. 

What’s different about this year with Tom Brady is that the NFL obviously doesn’t want him around. The media doesn’t either. They have moved on to the Patrick Mahomes types, the Josh Allens, the much younger and mobile quarterbacks who are part of the new story of the NFL. The Bucs have done the woke thing and put people of color in charge of their coaching staff, even though they obviously have problems making decisions. They aren’t the best people for the job; they were put there because of color, although Todd Bowls, the head coach, made great news when he recently dismissed the measurement of color, which gained national attention. Bowls is a great defensive coordinator when he can dominate the other team. But his playcalling is terrible in close games when the other team isn’t intimidated, and that has certainly carried over into this year, where he remains the defensive play caller, and he just can’t stop the other team. Everyone has gotten so used to being lazy on the field and on the sideline because they just expect Tom Brady to get the ball at the end of the game and win it for them that some of these games are just getting out of reach. Tom Brady usually has an opportunity to still win the game for them, but people are happy to let him do most of the work. And that problem comes from leadership. The coaches are lazy; the players reflect the coaches. One thing about leadership that is always obvious, people adapt to the personality of the leader, so when a good leader is present, it’s evident to the world because the culture takes on their personality; when there isn’t good leadership, it’s just as evident for all those reasons. 

And every day, the news is that Tom Brady is getting divorced from his wife, Gisele Bundchen, a person many consider the most beautiful woman in the world. During the Super Bowl year of Tom Brady’s first year in Tampa, she was a tremendous asset. The other players looked at Brady and his wife, their children, Tom’s love of his parents, and his good-guy image as the best in the world, and they played off it. They listened to Tom Brady because they wanted to be like Tom Brady and have what Tom Brady had: good successful life in every way people measure success, money, beauty, ethically, and categorically. But this year, Tom Brady looks like a person like everyone else. Even at press conferences, Brady goes way out of his way to appear just like the other guys, that he’s nothing special and that he continues to play because he wants to be around his teammates. This is to other players who often have to think about whether to tackle at full speed a 300-pound player with their 250-pound bodies at 20 MPH with a head-on collision that will undoubtedly hurt the next day, a weak proposal. While they know, they have a few million dollars in their bank accounts. Why are they going to hit the other player so hard again? Especially since everything is always about Tom Brady?   Unless you have a special coach who can motivate such players, a lackluster effort is almost baked into the problem.

But specifically for other guys, they look at people they follow, and if the leader can’t hold together a marriage, then why should they listen to them about anything? A guy going through a divorce is a loser, no matter how fair that assessment might be. If you can’t hold a family together, why should anybody listen to you about anything? If a woman who knows you in your most vulnerable state, behind the media curtain, isn’t so in love with you that she’ll do anything to stay with you, then there is something wrong, and a locker room will quickly figure that out. And that holds true for everything, not just sports. If a leader can’t lead a family, they certainly can’t lead an organization, a school, or a society. All men know that once a wife leaves a man and is off to Chuckee Cheese with a new one, and a man loses his kids to a stepfather, it’s over. A family is broken beyond repair, the children will grow up with likely problems as a result, and the leadership potential of that man is gone. There is a lot of effort in the world to try to hide personal behavior behind processes, but that is just not how human beings are wired. Tom Brady is the best of all time because he did everything well. His private life was successful, which then carried over into on-field behavior. But this is the problem when you stick around too long, people start thinking of him as just another guy, who has problems just like everyone else, and at that point, the magic is gone forever. This is why I thought it would be good for Brady to stay retired, ride off into the sunset, and let history remember him as the best. But to lose that leadership ability, which he clearly has, especially now that his wife is clearly not with him, the cost is far worse than just lost games. Tom Brady has lost his leadership brand. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may still win their division. Tom Brady may even win another Super Bowl. But in doing so, he has lost what is most important, his leadership brand. And once a man loses it, it’s nearly impossible to get back. And to the way I think, that isn’t worth another chance at a Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers and Ayahuasca: The way liberalism hides behind ancient religions and masks of goodness

As if the raiding of President Trump’s home wasn’t enough, or the collapse of the global economy, the perverts who run public education and are a far greater menace to children than the potential danger of school shooters, or the purposeful deaths created by government in reaction to the government creation of Covid, then the mismanagement of it, the Aaron Rodgers story about taking Ayahuasca during a trip to Peru might not seem like such a big deal. But really, it is. It shows the undercurrent of a massive, global sentiment toward drug use to fulfill the religious needs of globalists and their reverence to mother earth worship and ancient taboos meant to control mass society. I have only said, all of my long life, that any government that is permissive to drug use is one that wants to dumb down its citizens so they are easier to control and less of a threat to their eventual power. That is certainly the case with the latest Ayahuasca drug cult that has been emerging for a while now, not just in global cultures but specifically in America. I would point to musical groups like The Doors as part of that ceremonial tribalism that had in its always intentions worship of the dualist goddess cults that were constantly plaguing the earth with stupidity and mayhem. The use of psychedelics to “open” the mind to new experiences is not a new thing, and I do subscribe to the current theory that it was through plant-based psychedelic diets that caused mankind’s consciousness to expand into what we see today, something capable of creation in mimicking and possibly even surpassing what was viewed in the shamanic visions induced through various drugs. Ayahuasca is a plant-based brew that is specific to the Amazon rainforests and has been used by shamans there for thousands of years to communicate with what they call the “dead.” So along comes aimless Aaron Rodgers, a guy who is at midlife without children, even without a wife, searching for meaning. So he went like a lot of people do in his condition to Peru and sought out the advice of a shaman, and what he learned was the advice of an undercurrent religion to which the United Nations is dedicated entirely, the worship of the earth and understanding that nature has dominion over mankind, not the other way around as it says to us in the Book of Genesis. 

Liberalism has always come to us disguised in music, movies, drugs, and essentially all aspects of artistic culture. It never announces itself as a religion, but once you peel back the layers of all secret societies which operate in the background of our culture, specifically politics, it is then discovered the old religion of dualism, which essentially states that all things in the material world are evil. The only good thing is to sacrifice yourself to the spirit world and live for everlasting life, life without a body. That means that all things created in life, regarding material flesh, wives, children, houses, things that the American Constitution protects, are to be discarded in favor of a spiritual life oblivious to material comforts. This is where the dumb ideas of fasting come from: living a life of celibacy and material denial in service to religious objectives. But under all that sacrifice is the duelist notion of living as plants do; when they die, their seed reproduces and spawns again. If you cut off the limbs of a tree, it grows back. And in that way, nature represents everlasting life and is the most essential thing in the world to work for. That is what Pablo Amaringo would say, the famous Peruvian shaman who has been celebrated around the world for his fantastic art regarding his Ayahuasca visions. For this reason, I have been talking about this culture for a while now, well before Aaron Rodgers announced his experiences at the start of the 2022 football season in using it to secure his MVP title the year before. 

I kind of like Aaron Rodgers; I know he’s a reader and is thoughtful about things, at least for the athletic jock types. He’s unusually intelligent. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know when he is being played by the undercurrents of mass society in general. He is very much plugged into the corporate world through his many endorsements, and he got himself into a little trouble last year when he stood up to the NFL push to mandate vaccines. In the way things work, this Ayahuasca thing is a bone thrown toward the globalists because they love the idea that a popular media figure like Rodgers is promoting drug use for psychological alignment and mental health. That is music to their ears. And the fact that liberalism has seeped into Aaron Rogers’ life in many ways can be seen in his new girlfriend, Blu of Earth. They now have matching tattoos that have all the symbols of dualism contained in it on their forearms. What they call a spiritual journey is essentially the same dualist religions that have been with the world since the beginning of time and are certainly pushbacks against the latest religious invention of material culture as we know of it in Christianity and god giving men dominion over the earth and everything on it. 

We know that the goal of the KGB when they were planting seeds of destruction in American culture through our universities in the 40s and 50s was to create a society not of warring cowboys and gunslingers, as America was at the time, but a bunch of tree-hugging hippies smoking dope, taking LSD to find themselves, and to embrace love, not war. That is, of course, what the enemy would love. In the modern context, it makes the globalists very happy to see a great warrior of America, an American football player talking about seeking love in his life and living peacefully with existence. And from Aaron Rodgers’ perspective, I’m sure the pressures of performance on television week in and week out have their own challenges, and managing that pressure requires thinking outside the box. When you don’t have a wife or kids, and those parts of your life feel like they are leaving you behind, of course, it’s easy to find meaning in earth worship and ancient religions that speak against materialism and spiritual fulfillment. The caution should come from any culture in knowing what the undercurrents are to the sentiment, the reason that Ayahuasca is being suddenly shown as a solution to the world’s problems. I personally think there are scientific benefits to Ayahuasca and that what it does is benefit the human brain in pulling off the restrictor plates in the visual spectrum that we currently have. But I don’t think it’s a miracle drug or the great boon of existence. Instead, the benefit is in seeing the influences on mankind that often hide in the shadows. We misdiagnose them as “spirit guides” when they are likely demons, “tricksters,” whispers of doom and destruction who use famous celebrities to spread their message of wickedness and destruction behind presentations of peace and love. Ayahuasca can allow us to see those maniacal creatures and to deal with them. But the danger is in thinking they are here to help us. And behind the religious intentions of globalists, this is their ultimate plan, to submit all of mankind to the gods of nature and to destroy the materialist concepts of Christianity forever. It’s a plan with all the elements of evil we might fear and then some.

They Teach You To Be Dumb So You Don’t See Their Crimes: Thoughts from the Ohio State/Michigan football game

Government Schools are designed to Make You Dumb

If you do a root cause analysis on corruption, you will conclude that laziness is the primary driver.  And when you look at the most common trait of a government employee of any kind, on average, you will find that they tend to seek that type of work because they are lazy.  Therefore, it’s nearly a promise in every circumstance that you will get corruption out of government employees that will need to be heavily monitored.  Yet what do you get when you hire government employees protected by a socialist labor union to educate your society?  Well, you get the results of laziness and corruption on a mass scale.  And to look at it another way, what is the root cause of criminal behavior?  Well, it’s laziness again.  People would instead steal something than earn something because they think it is the easier path to a personal objective.  So guess what happens when you have criminals running your government, and they are also in charge of educating your society?  Well, you get the results of what I saw while watching the Ohio State, Michigan game.  The audience of over 100,000 people there in Ann Arbor all caught looking at the curtain in the Wizard of Oz, the illusions, the smoke, the mirrors, the bellowing projection of fear seeking the blue pill distraction of an exciting football game.  But not dealing with the root cause of much of what is wrong with society, a poor education not because we didn’t fund it correctly, but that we allowed people to learn all the wrong things.  

Education to me is a lifelong experience.  I think everyone should read a book or two per week, during their entire lives.  Graduating from college at age 22 isn’t enough to become an “educated person.” I deal with many people who have master’s degrees and doctorates, and I don’t consider these people educated.  It may give them a good start in a field of endeavor, but education is a daily adventure, not a final destination.  In the times we are in now, there are so many opportunities to be educated; we have access to more books and information than at any point in the history of the world.  And being well-read is a responsibility of all people.  If you want a great society, you need an educated society.  But as it stands, and what was evident at that college football game, all college sports, and even professional sports, is that the criminals of our society have deliberately dumbed down our people through the education process so that they can get away with committing crimes on a massive scale. 

One example of this deliberate ignorance was the expectation of the Biden administration into lying to our face about gas prices.  The Biden radicals shut off oil production in America.  Gas prices went up.  Then we were told that a global cabal runs the oil market and that America was powerless to do anything about it, when in fact, we just had a president in Trump who had the oil price issue under control.  But what is really driving up the costs of deliberately sabotaging the oil market is the Biden administration’s commitment to the United Nations climate change agenda.  Those same officials stood in front of the media and lied to everyone about the cause of the rising prices, and they expected their answers to stick.  They also expect the media to report the information as propaganda out of sheer laziness and the crippled mind of ignorance the public education system had given them.  The best way to hide a crime, or many crimes, in this case, is to teach people not to see it.  That is the result of our public education system and our colleges.  They are mass failures, and they were made that way on purpose by lazy, criminal-minded government employees who would rather live by a life of crime than by the ethics of hard work.  For proof, review the contents of the Biden laptop, and everything will become very clear.

Those poor people at that football game are most upset about the high gas prices. Still, they do not want to shake up any controversy with their friends and family over politics and election fraud instead of turning their energies to a football game.  They spend fortunes at those two prominent colleges, and they want to see something positive for it.  Is their education valuable? Did it teach them anything really useful in life?  No.  If anything, it has crippled them intellectually.  But if Michigan could only beat Ohio State, well, then there’s something to cheer for.  Suddenly, a six-figure education is worth the money if Michigan could beat Ohio State only one day a year.  Or, as usually happens, Ohio State wins and justifies all the wasted effort in those educations with a rallying cry all the students and their parents can enjoy. This dominating sports program serves as the face of the school.  Meanwhile, all the bad work is done behind the scenes; all the wrong things are taught for reasons that only serve a criminal enterprise in public service. 

It’s just something I noticed as the students rushed the field at the end of the game, where Michigan won the game.  The pent-up energy was more than a victory; it was a justification for their belief in a system that has let them down.  The results of the football game at least gave them some lipstick for the pig.  But it had emptied their bank accounts on another kind of theft, the looting of minds that might otherwise function from intelligence.  But it’s not all bad.  Education is the most important thing we do, but its responsibility cannot come from the criminal class, the public servants who do those jobs because they are too lazy for anything else in life.  No, the education for things in life must come from you.  You must not look to others to educate you; you must do it yourself.  And it doesn’t end with a college degree, a $400,000 house, and 2.5 kids in a flat marriage to someone stuck in the same rut.  No, education is every Saturday morning from 5 AM to noon, or every morning from 4:30 AM to about 7 AM, reading books, voluminous amounts of books, the great classics, popular fiction, modern commentary, speculative sciences, sciences, the religions of the world.  Everything that’s going on, I can see it all very clearly, but then I function every day in the manner I commented.  I get up early every morning, and I read.  And on weekends, I usually read for 6 or 7 hours per day before everyone else gets up and does things.

You do that kind of thing all your life, no matter how young you are or how old you get.  You educate yourself by feeding your mind good things.  You can still watch the Ohio State, Michigan games.  It comes on at noon.  You can still do your weekly chores.  You can still run the kids around town and drop them off where they want to go.  But while you’re waiting on things, you read a book instead of wasting time on Facebook updating your profile picture to people who really could care less about it.  They only give you a vote because they want the same from you.  Instead of wasting your time, feed your mind, make yourself truly smart, and only then will the blatant antics of these modern government crimes become apparent because the criminals count on everyone not to see what they are doing.  And the dumber you allow yourself to be, the more you trust the education they gave you, the more crime we will see in our society.  And they’ll do it until we stop it, and the results of the Michigan game won’t prevent it.

“Believe” in Eric LeGrand: The Tampa Buccaneers make a BOLD move that will change the world

When I first heard that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had signed DT Eric LeGrand to the 90 man roster my first thought was that it was in bad taste to appeal to the world and sell tickets to my favorite team for the upcoming season by exploiting a young man’s depilating injury. LeGrand was severely injured during a special teams tackle while playing at Rutgers and broke his neck paralyzing him at age 20 from the neck down. Doctors gave LeGrand a 0 to 5% chance to ever regain any feeling in the neurological systems of his body.

But Eric is a tough kid and shortly after his injury, he insisted to be taken off his breathing machine. Then he gained feeling in his hands. LeGrand worked every day to move a part of his body and now he can actually stand for periods of time, which is an absolutely tremendous achievement. Coach Schiano who was his coach at Rutgers when LeGrand went down with the injury has been helping the young man stay focused, along with the fantastic support of a mother who refuses to quit, and it is becoming clear what forces have helped give Eric LeGrand the inner strength to beat these impossible odds to recovery.

Coach Schiano is now the coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team that is loaded with talent, but lost their way last season with a lack of focus and leadership. My love of the Buccaneers stems from the ownership of the Glazer family, and how innovative they have been in their approach to the game of football, and the NFL in general. When they hired Schiano after many interviews with many coaches, some who had taken their teams to last year’s playoff games, it was evident they saw something special in Schiano that would resurrect a level of greatness that the fans of Tampa Bay had come to expect.

Schiano has not disappointed so far, he has made some fantastic acquisitions in the free agency market, and this year’s draft is considered to be one of the best in Buccaneer history. The team has managed to create some cap room to work with, and they have used it to get some really good players to fill the voids exposed during the last season. That is why it seemed like a publicity stunt to see that Schiano had put LeGrand on the Buccaneer 90 man roster. After all, there is no way that LeGrand will play DT for Tampa Bay in 2012 if ever. Even if he could gain the ability to walk again, there is simply no way that he could outperform the hoards of other athletes all competing for the same job who have not suffered a debilitating injury. That is the conventional wisdom of the stats and science in placing an NFL player on the field to win football games. But conventional wisdom does not produce exceptions, and in any competitive endeavor, it is the exceptional that tip the balance of power in favor of a victor.

Great players are a dime a dozen, and coaches, teams and fans are always on the look-out for those special individuals who display leadership in the face of adversity and overcome odds that are insurmountable, and LeGrand certainly exhibits these traits without even stepping onto a football field.

My personal feelings about injuries and the kind of things doctors tell us are well noted here. I believe cancer could be cured tomorrow but the pharmaceutical companies and FDA are more concerned about preserving the status quo for their retirement accounts than actually solving a problem that will change medicine. When it comes to spinal cord injuries and nerve damage, doctors often project doomsday scenarios tapping their patients into the local pharmacy promoting bags of drugs to return the sick to some semblance of a normal life.

I don’t trust much of what doctors tell me, because I find the limits of their medical understanding confining and their belief in the potential of the human body to be deficient. My own doctors and rehab specialists tried to guide me in returning my knee to full function after extensive ACL surgery. I had torn my ACL in a basketball game, and then further damaged my knee by tearing the MCL while jumping through a wall of fire performing a whip stunt. The grass was wet to protect it from being burnt, so when I landed my foot slipped out from under me because there was no ACL to support my leg, and my femur actually drove into the ground leaving a small crater. My knee-joint slipped so far out of socket the bone had no knee in the way to protect it.

Doctors gave me weeks of rehab as the prognosis once they repaired my ACL, but I worked hard to recover as quickly as possible. I had my surgery done on a Thursday; I was walking and back to work on the following Monday. I could have milked time off work for weeks if I wanted to, but that is not how I think. I wanted to recover, and get back on my feet quickly—and I did. I went to rehab every couple of days, and I felt they were wasting my time, like my appointments were simply to provide work for the rehab employees and had very little to do with my actual recovery. I stunned the staff recovering 6X’s faster than the average, according to them. When my insurance company saw my progress with the rehab clinic, they cut the payments to my rehab. And on that day, it was my last session. I wasn’t about to pay for something out of my own pocket that I could do better on my own.

As I was leaving my therapists warned me that I might lose my advanced progress if I did not come to them anymore, in fact, my leg might not be as strong. They were aghast that I refused to take any medication during this time and made it sound as though my leg would fall off if I quit therapy. Within weeks of walking out on my therapists because my insurance company would no longer cover the costs, I was running on my leg again, and jumping through walls of fire—doing what I love doing.

My wife had ruptured a disk in her lower back carrying my youngest daughter the rest of the way up a mountain hike and didn’t realize it until we got home because she had difficulty walking. We went to see a back surgeon and discovered that she was about to become paralyzed from the waist down due to the disk slippage, so she went through emergency surgery.

After the surgery she had lost a lot of feeling in her toes and parts of her leg and was told that those nerves in her leg had been severally damaged, and she may never be able to walk correctly. Well, to my wife, this simply wasn’t an option. She had kids to raise and things to do. We rubbed her legs and feet for hours stimulating the damaged nerves and gradually she regained most of her feeling, and within a month, was able to walk normally. Again, if we had listened to the doctors, she would probably still have problems walking and her body would most likely be addicted to some pharmaceutical product to this very day even though that was well over decade ago.

The injury to LeGrand is much more severe than either one of the injuries described above, but what he has that is in common is a will to recover, to conquer his debilitation and take charge of his own body and its functions, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. For that, Coach Schiano is wise to understand that by placing LeGrand on the very young Tampa Bay Buccaneers football team that the presence of LeGrand will inspire the other players to greatness, to be at the top of their physical prowess, because compared to LeGrand, what does anyone have to complain about. If LeGrand can work out with the Buccaneers players and they see what it looks like to recover from paralysis what does a healthy player have as an excuse to not strengthen a ham string injury, or a sprained ankle?

For the inspiration of having such a positive presence on the practice field, LeGrand is worth the roster spot, and will certainly earn the privilege of playing in the NFL, even if it’s just on the sidelines. Because like most games, the battles are not won just on the field of play, they are won in the mind of the participants before the contest even begins.

I believe that with the positive attitude that Eric LeGrand has, with the support of his very positive mother and mentoring of Coach Schiano, that Eric may very well take his first steps on the practice field at One Buc Place sometime during the upcoming football season. Once Eric is on the field around other athletes, that desire to compete will drive the cells of his body to his cause, and he will walk while in a Buccaneer uniform, and the world will shudder at the miracle. LeGrand will become a shock to the medical industry of the world as new hope will be given to all victims of paralysis. The medicine of positive thinking will begin to get serious reappraisal.

Further, I believe that by the 2013 season, Eric will be running again and will be able to practice on the field simulating plays with the practice squad. And because he will have recovered and worked so hard to come back to that point, he will be a superior athlete, far surpassing what most in his position have otherwise achieved, because he has had to learn to overachieve just to recover.

By the 2014 season Eric will be in the rotation of DT’s in Tampa and he will find that he has surpassed his previous playing ability with a ferocity that defies fear, because he will have a new lease on life and will know that he has survived the worse that can be thrown at him, and he beat it back and the world will gasp at his stunning performance on third downs.

By 2015, just 5 short years from his terrible injury at Rutgers, at the tender age of 27, Eric LeGrand will be the dominate DT in the league and will be the starter for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Many all over the NFL will be comparing him to Warren Sapp and Lee Roy Selmon but Eric will have done something nobody in the history of the world has done, he will have returned from an injury that doctors had doomed him to a life of paralysis to not only recover, but be bigger, stronger, and faster than ever before because he had knocked on death’s door and faced that ultimate fear at the brink, and that will make him unstoppable. And his never-say-quit attitude will carry the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a string of Superbowl wins that will dominate the NFL for a 6 year period up to the 2022 season. And Eric LeGrand will be known as one of the greatest players to ever play the game and he’ll not only change the game of football for the better, but will alter the course of medical science.

If you can think it, you can do it Eric.  (CLICK HERE for more info)

It will all come back to the odd decision of Coach Schiano and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to sign a paralyzed, but optimistic kid to their 90 man roster in 2012, a decision that will reenergize Buccaneer football in Tampa to a new decade of dominance and inspire the world to the unlimited possibilities of positive thinking. Once again it will be proven that the prizes of life do not go to the quicker, the stronger, or the largest man, but to the one who simply refuses to quit and believes that they can do anything once they set their mind to it and force their bodies to equal the quality of their thoughts.  The strength of heart simply has more value than the bulk of muscle, and is so rare that even if a person is in a wheel chair they can have more value than a whole busload of healthy players that are the best physical athletes of their age, yet lack the inner drive to achieve beyond expectation.  That is why Eric LeGrand will change the world, starting with the fate of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

Ronde Barber Will Be Back: Why schools should take pay cuts to avoid tax levies

Ok, I’m happy………………..my favorite football team on the face of the planet has managed to secure a 16th season from their future Hall of Famer, Ronde Barber. I was concerned after the Buc’s picked up Eric Wright, that Barber might retire, or that he might not want to play for Greg Schiano who will be Barber’s fourth head coach for the same team over his career. But Ronde has agreed to terms that will allow him to return for a one year deal to help the Buccaneers bring back to life a defense that was epic under the schemes of the great Monte Kiffin.

The offseason moves made by the Glazer family, who own the Bucs have been impressive so far on paper. I think they did the right thing to hire the right kind of guy in Greg Schiano from Rutgers. It is very difficult to walk in the footsteps of coaches like Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, but the Glazers interviewed a lot of coaches before settling on Schiano. After making that hire they proceeded to hire a completely new coaching staff and picked up some key free agents.

It might seem strange to some who read here every day to understand why I enjoy the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so much. Well, aside from my love of pirates, the Buccaneers have a long history of innovation and thinking outside the box for a sports franchise, and even when they lose, most of the time they are exciting to watch.

The Glazer family operates their franchise from the front of the train. If you read here often you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, then CLICK HERE to learn what I mean. It is a scary place to be at the front of the train, and sometimes you pick the wrong track, which is what happened when the Buc’s committed so much in Raheem Morris, who was a good coach, but had lost the team halfway through last season. But that doesn’t mean everything Raheem did was bad. He went out and found a lot of good talent, by thinking outside the box, and those players are now gathered in one place. What they lacked was leadership, which Raheem could not bring to the table unfortunately, I think because of his youth.

So the Glazers rather than overreacting from the back of the train and spending a lot of money on a quarterback to save the day, like a Payton Manning, or a Bret Farve type, stuck with their players and decided to invest in leadership instead of players. The Glazers chose to go against the knee jerk reaction of the status quo by throwing players at the wall and hoping they stick and instead found leaders who think at the front of the train.

That kind of ownership is what makes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a quality organization that I have enjoyed for over two decades now. CLICK HERE TO SEE MY PREVIOUS ARTICLES. That’s the kind of mentality that brought about one of the greatest defenses to ever play football lead by Warren Sapp in the late 90’s, and what I have seen the Glazers trying to duplicate since, without falling into the grove of complacency.

It has been difficult for Tampa Bay to retain their identity after Monte Kiffin left to help coach with his son Lane. But Tampa had to deal with that problem sooner or later, and they have tried to find the right personnel who will help them regain that level of play.

The Bucs have a lot of great young players and statistically, they should be one of the best teams on any football field. But it takes more than just players to achieve greatness. Greatness is more than just throwing and catching footballs. Or running a football. Or stopping someone from doing those things against you. Greatness is in the heart, it’s at the front of the train of thought. It’s in the drive to always become better. And for young players to see greatness, they need to be around it, so they can see what it’s supposed to look like.

In Tampa Bay the Buccaneers organization under the Glazer family has seen many players retire as Buc players, notably, Derrick Brooks, Mike Alstott, and now Ronde Barber, and each of those players late in their careers took pay concessions in order to stay with the Bucs, so the organization could afford to keep them around. Ronde if he really wanted to could most likely double his price on the open free agency market, but Ronde like Brooks and Alstott, even John Lynch before he suffered a serious neck injury and Warren Sapp just before going to the Raiders as a free agent were willing to take significant cuts in pay to stay with the Bucs. This is how so much veteran leadership has been able to stay with Tampa over the years, and why it is such a relief to see that Ronde is going to stay one more year, so that the young Buc players can learn from him.

The people I might sit at the bar in Chili’s with on a Sunday afternoon watching football understand the economics of Ronde’s decision. They also understand that Payton Manning couldn’t stay with the Colts because the price tag to keep Payton was simply too great. Around the bar over beer, nacho’s and cheese dip, people understand that sports teams can’t afford to pay $20 million dollars for a player that might not play a lot and is likely to end up hurt before the end of the season, so they often cut their losses unless the player is willing to take major cuts in pay.

But in the next conversation with the same group of people, they will say that teachers and school administrators should be paid an infinite sum of money never to be capped off. Never to end. They will say that it’s OK for a school system to operate with a top-heavy payroll and that if more money is needed to balance the budget, then taxes should be increased.

Why are people smart about sports, but not about education—or government? I have a lot of theories, but for now it’s just an observation to consider. When I say that a school system, or a public service that charges taxpayers for their service requires more money, I wonder how many of those employees at the top of their pay scale would be willing to do as Ronde Barber has done so he could stay with his team, and take a cut in pay. To help his team out with leadership so he can play another year with the group he has known and loved for years. Or should he betray his fans, and his employers the way Labron James did in Cleveland, and just go for the big money and tell everyone else to go to hell.

One of the reasons I like the Buccaneers as an organization is because of players like Ronde Barber. There is no question as to where his loyalty is, or what his intentions are. And because he is a straight shooter he has a lot of leadership to provide the young talent who need someone to look up to for guidance. It’s too bad that people like Ronde Barber are so few and far between. I can only wish for a world that had more people like him, who put loyalty before a payday, and honor before ease of gain, because if more were like him, it’s likely that the world would be a much better place. School levies wouldn’t be required, politics wouldn’t be so dirty, and people would mean what they say.

But since there aren’t many people like Ronde Barber in the world, I will enjoy the only one I know of on Sunday afternoons as he plays at Raymond James Stadium for one more year, and thank God he is still there. Because someone must pass on the torch, and it’s a veteran like Barber who has the potential to lead a rag-tag team of youngsters into the next decade of domination because it’s leadership that does such things and leadership exists at the front of the train, not in the size of the paycheck.

Clint Eastwood: It’s Halftime in America

Ok, it’s official, this is my favorite Superbowl commercial of 2012. Clint Eastwood on behalf of Chrysler, proclaimed that America isn’t done, that it’s only halftime and there is time to come back and win. I loved the metaphor, and thought it was well said–and stylish.

As for the hate and blame that is going on, I agree. When all the stupid people get out-of-the-way, America can start winning again.

I’m ready, how about you?

Tampa Bay Hires a New Coach: The philosophy of winning in games, and life

It has been a long time since I’ve been able to write anything positive about my favorite football team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Shortly after writing a nice piece about my high hopes during the 2011 season, Raheem Morris lost control of the team somewhere between the game against the San Francisco 49’ers and the London game against the Chicago Bears. Raheem could not get his young players focused after loses to those two teams in the middle of the season and the Buc’s finished the rest of the season going from first place to never winning another game the rest of the season. This left the Buc’s needing to fire Morris who had been with the Glazers since he was a very young man. But when you are head coach, and you don’t win, someone has to pay. So the Glazers not only fired Raheem Morris, but every single coach on the football team, not out of meanness, but out of necessity. The press around Tampa Bay has been ablaze with speculation as to who in the world would coach the Buccaneers in the wake of this devastating termination of the entire coach staff. Many of the fans have been very frustrated that the Glazers interviewed so many coaches from the NFL, but committed to none of them. As January ticked away and time was running out panic began to set in from the fan base. They wanted to know who was going to hold the reigns of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and wanted to see how the coaching staff would be rebuilt, and they wanted it quickly. But the Glazers didn’t blink. They held out, they interviewed the held out some more—they interviewed some more, until they finally announced the hiring of Greg Schiano from Rutgers University.
The reason I’m a Tampa Bay Buccaneer fan as opposed to any other football franchise is that the Glazers are not afraid to gamble to get exceptional results. This has given them some of the best players in football history, particularly on defense, but some of the best coaches anywhere, many of them still coaching in the NFL. This is because the Buccaneers as an organization put philosophy first and emotion second when they make football decisions, and they use the three basic philosophic axioms to make those decisions, existence, consciousness, and identity. Knowing they were getting old and needed new blood to their philosophy of existence, the Buc’s fired a very good coach in John Gruden to promote Raheem Morris since Morris was being courted by NFL teams all over the country looking for the next Mike Tomblin of the Pittsburg Steelers. The Glazers had lost Tomblin once, and they didn’t want to lose Morris, and since the great defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin was leaving the NFL and head coaching jobs were being dangled in front of Morris the Glazers pulled the trigger, dumped Gruden and gave both jobs to Morris, who went on to be coach of the year shortly thereafter. Morris brought in great young players full of zip and poise, but eventually NFL teams were able to spot Morris’s weakness, his lack of ability to adapt and teach his team the kind of discipline needed to adjust a game plan when it didn’t work and constantly relearn plays to present fresh looks. Once teams figured out the Buccaneer playbook, the Bucs were exposed and could not win another game the rest of the year, and that was Morris’s fault. The Buc’s had lost their identity in the axiom of philosophy. This then affected their consciousness as a team and their ability to win games. Many fans of football think that what wins football games are strictly the X’s and O’s. Many sports analysts will also say such things. But they are wrong. What makes a winner on the football field is the same as what makes a winner in politics, in business, in family relationships, in personal endeavor; it’s having a correct philosophy.
The Glazers rather than hire an NFL coach to just come in and win a few more games next year with the same players looked to fix their philosophy in the offseason. They aren’t looking for another quarterback, a free agent linebacker or even new D-backs. The Bucs are looking to fix their philosophy at the most fundamental level. What is the goal of their existence? How do they know they have that existence, which is their consciousness, and what is their identity which unifies those two primary axioms? This is why the Buccaneers as an organization fly that giant flag over the practice field. The Glazers know full well what they are doing. They took a gamble on Morris, it failed, so they abandoned that train of thought not because Raheem wasn’t a great coach, I think he was, but because he wasn’t able to maintain the three axioms of philosophy that the Buccaneer organization is expected to uphold. So the Glazers went out and hired a coach who displayed that he understood what those axioms are.
Winning is not about spending money, it’s not about hiring a “has been.” It’s about being ahead of the curve and seeing what sometimes isn’t there yet. So I’m excited about the new hire of Greg Schiano. I am happy to see that someone outside the box is getting a chance to build a philosophy in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers organization that not only reflects the success of the past, but the success that is yet to be. I will continue to fly my Buccaneer flags and look forward to an exciting 2012 season which should be quite exciting.
But remember, it’s not just about football, the games we play in life are about strategy and strategy is about winning wars. Whether the wars are ones of blood, ones of politics, or ones of just scores on a board, winning is a philosophy. But the key is in finding the correct philosophy, no matter what the endeavor is. For the Buccaneers, their philosophy isn’t just to win one year or two years, but to have a philosophy of winning consistently. And for us all, winning can sometimes hit us in the face by accident, but winning consistently is a philosophy that must first be identified by knowing our existence, recognizing our consciousness, and rallying being our identity.

SOCIALISTS LIVE: Hoffman Lenses on Urban Meyer of Ohio State

Urban Meyer this week was signed to a contract with Ohio State to be their head football coach at a cost of $4 million per year for six years, with milestone incentives of $450,000, $750,000 and $1.2 million if Meyer is still employed as the head coach on Jan. 31st of 2014, 2016, and 2018.

That seems like a lot of money for a head coach in a college football program, but Ohio State would argue that they are committed to winning, and being great, so they will spend the money on the right coach so they can climb back on top in the world of college football.  The trouble is, Ohio State is a public institution and they accept tax money to function.  So isn’t paying Urban Meyer so much money an irresponsible use of tax payer money?  After all, it’s easy to spend other peoples money, so for Ohio State to declare that they must spend so much money on a head coach to be competitive brings up a whole bunch of questions, which Doc Thompson of 700 WLW discusses in respect to all the recent pondering about how much education should cost, and how much tax money should property owners in Ohio be required to pay for it.  Listen to that broadcast here:

Well, I’ve spoke a lot about the ridiculous wages among education officials.  The more I looked at it, the more bizarre the behavior seemed.  Just looking at teachers, they make a very healthy wage for the work they are required to perform, compared to the private sector.  But the administrators, many of them in public schools are making $80K and up.  And in college, it is not uncommon for professors to make in the six figures.  It simply does not make sense that when schools ask for more money, or in Ohio State’s case they raise tuition rates, why people are so willing to pay for the high wages of these employees without question.  Because the cost of education could be driven down if administration costs were lowered.  Makes sense—right? 

But then why are so many educators open socialist?  Why do so many employees who work for education lean to the political left?  That doesn’t make sense.  I mean, I can understand a few, but it would seem that there would be an equal number of conservative leaning educators as well, sinceAmericais divided up down the middle in political ideology.  But no, most educators lean to the left—why? 

Many years ago there was a film I like a lot called THEY LIVE.  It’s a science fiction B movie from the 80’s starring Rowdy Roddy PiperAs a movie it’s very fun, and simple, and a cheap rendition at merging the science fiction and horror genre with action adventure. It’s directed by John Carpenter and makes no attempt to take itself serious.  But the film in all its simplistic narrative is actually quite ingenious, which is why 30 years later people still think of the movie as a “CULT CLASSIC.”  In that film the main character sees that something is terribly wrong with the world, that something isn’t quite right.  He meets a man who tells him that everything is not what it seems, and that if he puts on a pair of special sunglasses, that Piper can see things for how they really are.  Well, at first Roddy Piper thinks the man is crazy, and refuses to put on the glasses.  Ironically, the glasses are produced by a manufacturer by the name of HOFFMAN LENSES. If you want to see what HOFFMAN LENSES look like check out this link:

http://alienresistance.blogspot.com/2007/10/hoffman-lenses.html

In that film when the HOFFMAN LENSES are put on, the world as it truly is can be seen.  In the case of THEY LIVE, the world is being run secretly by a group of aliens who are quietly subverting our entire culture.  See the video below to see how it works:

Well, as I have been asking the hard questions about why our culture is behaving in an odd way, I have been assuming that the United States was functioning as a capitalist country and the hippies, goons, freaks, losers, progressives and tree huggers were just a fleeting fantasy of fringe radicalism.  After all, many of their ideas are as alien to me as if they came from another planet, and listening to them speak, they seem to be from a different galaxy all together, so to me, they might as well be extraterrestrials.  So I couldn’t figure out why they seem to be everywhere, in education, in the media, in movies, in magazines, in the government, in music, they seem to be ubiquitously wherever the eye looks, these leftist aliens from some other planet.  It was in doing research about the conditions of Greece that I discovered my HOFFMAN LENSES and I had an epiphany.  

Putting on my metaphorical HOFFMAN LENSES is learned about Socialist International and noted how deeply they were embedded into our world culture, and they are VERY active in penetrating American culture through the progressive Democrats and Republican parties in the United States.  See my article about this epiphany here:

I see through my HOFFMAN LENSES thatAmericais not being governed by aliens from another planet like in THEY LIVE.  We are being governed by even worse—SOCIALISTS!

Yes, look closely at that politician, who pretends to be just a Democrat, put on the HOFFMAN LENSES and you will see that they are open SOCIALISTS.  Look at that college professor with HOFFMAN LENSES on, and you will see a complete SOCIALIST.  Look at your local school board and study their policies of equality, taxing the rich, and fairness and you will see a school board of SOCIALISTS.  Look at the news person who proclaims economic justice with HOFFMAN LENSES and you will see a maniacal socialist.  Look at President Obama give a speech with HOFFMAN LENSES on and you will see a pawn to the SOCIALIST EMPIRE that is spreading across the world.  Look at the Department of Education with HOFFMAN LENSES and you will see the nest of American Socialism, for this is where they landed in this county, and entered our government, in 1979 when Jimmy Carter created that department because the socialist unions put pressure on him to generate it.

Take the HOFFMAN LENSES off and where you used to see SOCIALISTS you will now see Ohio State football, and Urban Meyer leading them to an undefeated season.  You will see grown men dancing in their driveways with the television on in their garage watching college football on a Saturday afternoon drinking and eating grilled hamburgers.   You will see grown men rooting for high school kids to throw a ball under the Friday night lights of their local high school hoping that their kid will win a scholarship to a college and save them hundreds of thousands of dollars in college tuition.  You will see parents showing up to watch their children performing in a band concert in the school auditorium.  You will see charity events, fund raisers, and global awareness all seemingly nice and innocent proposals by an altruistic society.  With the lenses off you will see smiling faces, hand holding and a social push for peace and fairness.  Put the HOFFMAN LENSES on you will see SOCIALISM robbing us of freedom, of individual thought, of liberty which took over a hundred years to win from Europe only to have it slip back away under European control year by year since the 1850’s.  You will see the strings stuck to the legs of the football players at Ohio State and how Urban Meyer dances to them and how ESPN is the curtain on the stage.  You will see how the strings dance off into the Department of Education where policies are set by puppet master socialists and sold to us through the puppet show of sports. 

Without the HOFFMAN LENSES on yet knowing what is actually going on right in front of your eyes you will see how trivial all the discussion about draft picks, coaching salaries, and sports statistics really are.  It becomes quickly evident that the reason education professionals are so well paid is so they keep the HOFFMAN LENSES off, and do not attempt to look too carefully at what policies come to them from the Department of Education.  They are paid so well so they continue to advance the cause of socialism as part of the ruling elite, and play their part in keeping the world blind to the true intentions of world socialism. 

It is not the desire of your local school board to balance the budget to live within reasonable means.  It is their intention to tax the rich, and convert society slowly over time using our children as hostages to a scheme of wealth redistribution.  It is not the goal of college to be affordable.  It is the goal of these institutions to force parents and their children into a debt beyond measure, and keep everyone not working for financial freedom, but eternal debt, so they buy into the scheme of socialism.  They do not question the cost of education because they have bought into the program of sporting events.  They love the football, they love the basketball, they love college sports, and the recruiting process that is built in high school sports.  While society is happy with these nice distractions, they are reluctant to put on the HOFFMAN LENSES and see the truth. 

That is why Urban Meyer was paid so much money to rescue the Ohio State Football program from the mediocrity it currently suffers from.  Because without victory, people might reach for the HOFFMAN LENSES, and begin to see the truth, and that cannot happen if socialism is to continue its world wide domination of which only America stands in the way.   

And it’s not just Ohio State, but it’s the entire education empire.  The dance between education and government is a waltz of socialism that requires viewing with the HOFFMAN LENSES to see.  Until those metaphorical glasses are put on, and the truth can be seen for what it is, all those who refuse the truth are slaves to illusion in a denial that is infections and requires more and more beer to be consumed to subvert the nagging understanding that something just isn’t quite right. 

Have courage!   Put on the HOFFMAN LENSES and SEE for the first time what you always knew was there all along!!!!!!!!

And if you have never seen THEY LIVE, I’ll make it easy for you.  Here is the entire movie.   Enjoy!
