First American Statesman!

Feb 22 is a special day for all Americans, its our grand fathers birthday! no not that wonderful benevolent frumpy rocking chair old man that you are used to seeing on your front porch at your residence or hes own place!

Its our founding father of whom i can not fully extol and give enough pen and paper to describe just what a true statesman this gentle giant was and will forever be in our American Lexicon and Psyche. ladies and gentlemen here are just a few quotes:

  • “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
  • “The preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destination of the republican model of government, are staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the american people where is our George Washington in this day and age seek folks he maybe out there and does sound and speak American and loves the constitution! not willing to defy change and usrp the constitution but to defend her and protect her dearly!”

Hate Crimes Bill Passed by Senate panel

This one will be pretty darn easy folks, we won’t need to apply our magic formula and suffice to say today’s lab analysis will end with some simple investigatory questions!

A quote from Journal gazette Metro section (Wednesday, January 27, 2016); Indiana would recognize hate crimes for the first time under a bill approved by a senate panel Tuesday. Lagrange Republican Sen. Sue Glick offered Senate Bill 220, which would allow judges to consider the motivation behind a crime as a reason for giving a harsher sentence. “we think its important and significant enough to enhance the penalty” she said. “This sends a message to those individuals that we will not tolerate it in our society.” Glick later added that “it isn’t about a persons words, its about actions and their evil intent” Ok before i bring in the last portion of this intellectual gem of biblical breath taking proportions i need a cup of coffee, black with no sugar so i can imbibe and celebrate why in the name of Sam Hill, i cant seem to understand this mixture of horse manure and cow dung to combine for a good harvest in the garden of political gymnastics!! Please help  enlighten me as i ask one pertinent question; When any body or person commits a crime, or a violation of others property, space and possessions, is that a crime of love or is that a crime of hate? When a particular person, whatever their background, if they commit a crime and violate another human being, male or female, are they doing it (crime) with altruistic intentions? Does this perpetrator have very good intentions “aka” Robin Hood fame? As for you the victim standing in the way, and it just so happens to be the right place, wrong person and wrong time? Something smells like rotten potatoes in the sacred corridors of the intellectual hallways. Sadly those are the power corridors we call local state house senates and lets not even talk about the main senate house chamber in Washington D.C we don’t want to start puking here, this is a friendly lab show not a hot dog eating contest as in Coney Island New York during summer time! My issues with “hate Crime legislation” is almost similar to leaning towards the great unearned moral superiority of the Theocratic states such as Ayatollah Controlled Iran or the Provincial Hogwash leadership of the Taliban in Afghanistan; where you will be policed based on your intent or simply put they have a literal “Thought Police” department! Last i checked having bad thoughts or evil thoughts is not a crime but once you act on those evil thoughts chances are you will be in some hot potato soup! A crime is a crime regardless of intent and society should rise up and roundly soundly punish any perpetrator, and we have done this in eons past so why not continue the trend. Duh! Hello, common sense? Where are you when we need thee? And drums roll for the last portion of the newspaper; “the aggravator could be applied if the person committed the offense with the intent to harm or intimidate an individual because of the persons, race, religion, color, sex, gender, disability, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, transgender status or status as a veteran or member of the armed forces.” in conclusion the powers that be forgot the following classification: Midgets, dwarfs, Snow white, Drunken Sailors, Single Dads who work for the Government, small business Moms, Crossing Guards, Clowns, Circus Janitors and also the temptations, the Four Tops, Madonna, Rolling Stones and certainly Vanilla Ice! And if any one got left out they should kindly ring the door bell (ding Dong!) “Is anybody home?” Beam me up scotty, and send the mothership to an intelligent planet!!

Can you fool people all the time?

Hubble image of planetary nebula Hen 2-437

This is the quintessential definition of wonderment the beauty that lies above and around us! our phenomenal galaxy! Ladies and gentlemen may the force of nature be with thee;

here is a quote from NASA:

In this cosmic snapshot, the spectacularly symmetrical wings of Hen 2-437 show up in a magnificent icy blue hue. Hen 2-437 is a planetary nebula, one of around 3,000 such objects known to reside within the Milky Way.

Located within the faint northern constellation of Vulpecula (The Fox), Hen 2-437 was first identified in 1946 by Rudolph Minkowski, who later also discovered the famous and equally beautiful M2-9 (otherwise known as the Twin Jet Nebula). Hen 2-437 was added to a catalog of planetary nebula over two decades later by astronomer and NASA astronaut Karl Gordon Henize.

Planetary nebulae such as Hen 2-437 form when an aging low-mass star — such as the sun — reaches the final stages of life. The star swells to become a red giant, before casting off its gaseous outer layers into space. The star itself then slowly shrinks to form a white dwarf, while the expelled gas is slowly compressed and pushed outwards by stellar winds. As shown by its remarkably beautiful appearance, Hen 2-437 is a bipolar nebula — the material ejected by the dying star has streamed out into space to create the two icy blue lobes pictured here.

Now to flip the tables upside down and visit our planet earth and see if we can find any wonders and bang! Hey presto! i present to you a few quotes being that it is Grand Dada birthday today you know that Kentucky Gentleman that lived in Illinois of all places something great and gritty coming from illinois, who would have thought like wise? drums roll may the pied pipper play and voila;

  • “Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a mans character give him power”
  • “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other”
  • “whatever you are be a good one”
  • “the best way to predict the future is to create it”
  • “i walk slowly but will never walk backwards”
  • “whenever i hear someone argue for slavery, i feel a strong impulse to see it tried  on him personally”
  • “those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves”
  • “the people of these united states are the rightful masters of both congress and the courts not to overthrow the constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the constitution”
  • “when i do good i feel good, when i do bad i feel bad, that is my religion”
  • “better to remain silent and be thought a fool. than to speak out and remove all doubt”
  • “You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time but you can not fool all the people all of the time”

Some words drip like honey tea and ginseng slurped into the beautiful belly while rocking back and forth on a screened front porch! Georgia peach , Virginia slice or Ohio Sundown, you cant beat it!! Its a toast to our founding father grand puba dada “honest Abe!”

The question of the day is as follows; can most folk be fooled all the time or just some of the time? This is a 3 part series and begins at the senate level? why Senate level? the following quote will have you  squeamish in your chair or you could just do some jumping jacks and yell a Madonna song “if we took a holiday, and sometime to celebrate oh yeah”

Calling All Charlatans, Houston we have a problem!

“Mayday mayday, calling all charlatans, do you copy?. Folks we are going to have a problem, anticipate a crash landing of the maiden flight Pigs of Apollo. This is Captain Snort and in-flight crew, delta Pigs in Space…. Do you copy, over?” [inaudible rattling sound]….. Roger, Copy. Observation from the ground, we see the craft about to nose dive; i think this is what i see in the following Associated Press Story from a local Journal Gazette February 5th: Nothing can further illustrate what takes place when pigs fly and crash land. Quoted material is lined up first and my commentary is fashionably inserted to infuse vitality albeit washed and rinsed in our magic formulae, hang tight folks here we go:

Drug Exec takes fifth, Angers Lawmakers, Washington– Infuriating members of congress, a smirking Martin Shkreli took the fifth at a capitol hill hearing Thursday when asked about his jacking up of drug prices, then promptly went on twitter and insulted his questioners as “imbeciles”.The brash 32 year-old entrepreneur who has been vilified as the new face of pharmaceutical-industry greed was summoned by the house oversight (you gotta be kidding me right?  Mr smith goes to Washington, for real!) and Government Reform committee, which is investigating soaring prices for critical medicines. ( before we go any further, arent these the same politicians who take contributions and i mean generous contributions from the Pharmaceutical companies?) ” Pharmaceutical and health product companies injected $51 million into the 2012 federal elections and nearly $32 million into the 2014 elections, according to the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). ” The industry has already spent nearly $10 million on the 2016 elections and is expected to spend more, especially now that Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have made drug prices a campaign issue with separate proposals to rein them in with new regulations.” Basically the lawmakers are pissed because its a show boating exercise in nonsensical theater, while behind closed doors there is in-fighting between the parties about who did not  get enough of a cut of the so-called dirty money. Republicans seems to get a larger chunk of the slice and dice pie!  Four times he intoned: “on advise of counsel i invoke my fifth amendment privilege against self-incrimination and respectfully decline to answer your question” Lawmakers erupted. Rep Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the top Democrat on the committee, all but told Shkreli to wipe the smile off his face. “I Call this Money blood money…coming out of the pockets of hardworking Americans,” he said as Shkreli sat through the lecture. “i know your smiling but I’m serious, Sir” Mr cummings said “i truly believe you can become a force for tremendous good. All i ask is that you reflect on it. No I don’t ask, i beg that you reflect on it” (in everyday speech Cummings may be saying or rather sending the poor CEO a message to come to the back room and make a deal with us stop with the giving the republicans all the loot, make nice and share more generously kindly really!) The former hedge fund manager with a frat-boy swagger has been reviled in recent months for buying Daraprim, the only approved drug for a rare and sometimes deadly parasitic infection, and unapologetically raising its price more than fifty-fold. (folks this is the point where you never take up the challenge of attending a sausage making exhibition at the local meat cutting factory, at a commercial farm near you, trust me you don’t want to know how-to-make-sausages, your skin will crawl and separate between outer skin and inner layers). Shkreli is out on $5 million bail after being arrested in New York for securities fraud charges unrelated to the price increase. Shkreli was dismissed within an hour into the hearing, but not before Rep Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, shouted down a request by Shkreli Attorney to speak. Lawmakers instead took turns denouncing his conduct and attitude. Minutes after he left and even before the hearing had ended- Shkreli thumbed his nose at the committee. “hard to accept that these imbeciles represent the people in our government,” the former CEO of Turing Pharmaceuticals tweeted. ( this guy should be taught some Italian and finish the sentences with Kapische mr congressmen). Article continues, Blah blah blah and moments later in the article; After Shkreli’s departure Turing’s chief commercial officer and the interim CEO of Canada’s largest drug-maker, Valeant Pharmaceuticals, received a bi-partisan lashing from the lawmakers. Internal documents released by the committee show that Valeant and Turing have  made a practice of buying and then dramatically raising prices for low-cost drugs given to patients with life-threatening conditions such as heart disease, AIDS and Cancer. Chaffetz an admitted “conservative guy” who accepts that companies need to make profits , said he was disgusted. and finally the last piece of the sausage making process; Shkreli said in an email to one contact: “we raised the price from $1,700 per bottle to $75,000. Should be a very handsome investment for all of us” This dear readers is why my cousin fast “Charlie KK” always told me “better to watch two mad stray dogs fight to the death” than watch this peep show in Congress as the machinations go on unabated! I still shudder to think about Sausage making at its ferocious “best”.  Is there a new meaning to “Fat Cats on wall street?” haven’t we heard that famous sound bite by some famous political figure head talk endlessly about “Big fat cats” on wall street buying influence and power and basically owning Washington DC. I could swear (oops, momma i promise i wont swear, will keep my mouth sanctified) that this was once a clarion call by the top figure head now occupying very high office in the land? I’m just saying its liberty when we can opine and learn as we ponder!….and this ends part 1 of the ongoing saga of legal drug money in politics!

May The Gipper live on!

Happy Birthday! to the one true 20th century founding father of modernism!

This is a special dedication to just say; let there be many happy returns on this side of the galaxies as well as the other side where most dare not venture, a point of no return!

I will indulge the audience here with some of his quotes and you will soon find out who this modern day giant statesman truly is, was and will continue to be regardless of what generation you hail!

Let the words drip like honey from a honeycomb:

  • The nine most terrifying words in the English language are:  I’m from The Government and im here to help.
  • Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
  • How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
  • Governments first duty is to protect the people not run their lives.
  • Government is not the solution to our problem. Government is the problem.
  • The struggle now going on for the world will not be decided by bombs, rockets by armies or military might. The real struggles we face today is a spiritual one; at root it is a test of moral will and faith
  • Republicans believe every day is the 4th of July, but  Democrats believe everyday is April 15th
  • We are never defeated unless we give up on God
  • Without God there is no virtue because there’s no prompting of the conscious. Without God we are mired in the material that flat world that tells us only what the senses percieve. Without God there’s a coarsening of society. And without God Democracy will not and cannot long endure.If we ever forget that we are one nation under God, then we are a nation gone under
  • I’ve noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born
  • Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected and passed on for them to do the same.
  • There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do whats morally right.
  • The greatest leader is not the one who does the greatest things. He is the one who gets the people to do the greatest things.
  • A people free to chose will always choose peace.
  • Trust but verify.
  • We must Reject the idea that every time a law is broken, that society is guilty rather than the law breaker. It is time to restore the precept that each  individual is accountable for his actions.
  • I believe the best social program is a job! (Amen Hallelujah!) (couldn’t help myself folks… back scratch as i clap my hands!)
  • The problem is not that people are taxed too little the problem is that Government spends too much
  • You wont get Gun control by disarming law abiding citizens. The only way you get real gun control is by dis-arming the Thugs and Criminals and locking them up and if you don’t actually  lose the keys forever at least lose the keys for a very long time…. its a nasty truth, for those that seek to harm others are not fazed by any gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.
  • It isn’t so much that Liberals are ignorant its just they know so many things that aren’t so.
  • Government does not solve problems it subsidizes them.
  • Man is not free unless Government is Limited.
  • Concentrated power has always been the enemy of liberty.
  • Of the Four Wars in my lifetime none came about because the US was too strong.
  • Recession is when your neighbor loses his Job, Depression is when you lose yours.

Folks you get the picture its rich, like my favorite gooey Brownies with double Fudge chocolate molten middle! Don’t we need a leader such as this great American right about now with all the drama unfolding in the house of cards called Washington DC (district of Criminals), ok that was harsh i meant to say DC (district of Clowns!!), Jokers to the left and spinless linguine to the right, one is known as donkey, the other is elephant might as well be Shrek. Shrek and Donkey do the whoopsie woo!  Sometimes its not about The D in your name or The R besides your name either, its about doing “the Peoples work!” as “We the People” appointed these representatives to speak for us not some other faceless entity or lobbyist with no name, pulling the teflon strings on Shrek and Donkey! On an upbeat note “HAPPY BIRTHDAY ‘ol Gipper!  FEB 6Th!!

 

Tail End of 2015

Folks sometimes its nice to be unplugged! Take a vacation from reality and zone out into space the wonder of it all, Priceless!

We are fortunate in this advanced class of learning to be limitless unbound and not constrained by the boundaries of time! we can study past, present, future and present future past if such existed in the modern lexicon! I guess i didn’t miss much while gone for a few light years i gather a few highlights that i will segway into here in just a few new york seconds;

Republican are fielding a large number of presidential primary candidates, and i promise not to bore you folks just a quick recap of the stellar list of elder statesmen and women: John Kasich (Ohio) Chris Christie (New Jersey- ‘go jersey boys!”), Rick Santorum (Pennsylvania), Jeb (OMG another Bushy) Bush (Florida), Carly Fiorina (California), Ted Cruz (Texas) Marco Rubio (Florida) Lindsey Graham (South Carolina), George Pataki (New York), Bobby Jindal (Louisiana), Donald J Trump (New York), Ben Carson (Maryland/Florida), Mike Huckabee (Arkansas), Rand PAul (Kentucky), Rick Perry (Texas), Scott Walker (Wisconsin). I’m almost out of breathe hang tight folks there’s more; The Cincinnati Reds, Kansas city royals, mr and mrs smith, John Adams, Thomas Jamieson, Grant Whiskey, Tony Label, Jack Daniels, Grey Goose Johnson Herbert, Mr and Mrs Napa Valley Jose Cuervo,George Smiley Washington IV, Peter David Brooks, and Naked cowboy (Time Square New York) just to mention the short list:

Democratic side is very sexy i swear upon victoria secret; Martin O’malley (MAryland, DC), Jim Webb (decorated Vet, Virginia/Missouri), Bernie “Grandpa Trotsky” Sanders (not the colonel american, this ones is from peoples republic of Vermont), Hillary “Rod n Ham” Clinton (scandal free zone lady of our time! Illinois/DC insider) and the puppet master to coming to a theater near you soon so please check with ticket master if you haven’t booked a show yet: bring friends and family and have buckets of pop-corn because this will be a debate of the century for both sides Republicans and Democrats! The monikers are Repukelicans and DemonCats (had to get that one off my chest, authenticity is the slogan for 2016)

Now how do you folks like this pristine almost pure wind driven snow type of candidates we have all the above running to be the leaders of the free world or is it the last bastion of whats left of western civilization? The only thing i wish the most was if Forest Gump were running i would scream on top of my lungs “run Forrest Run!” you never know if life’s like a box of chocolate because we are uncertain which Repukelican will come out on top of the crowded field. And we all know once the other side Democrats (typo) have first female political animal in chief, the uncrowned queen of America, Hillary Clinton, how can the political machine make her coronation any easier with only one guy left in the field as we write this letter! Venerable Mr Bernie Sanders admitted socialist a man with no shame whatsover representing the youthful angst and alienation: didnt someone grab hes soccer ball back in middle school and he wants it back now? Its payback time!

Just wishful thinking; can our heavenly over-lords please kindly ever with a cherry on top make the Republicans (typo oops) have a 3 Horse man race maybe 4 man race,  Cruz, Trump, Rubio and Carson so the caucus going folks (“aka” too much time on their hands choose one of the best two candidates) before my head explodes from excitement trying to choose which color brick im going to throw against the Television set? Mama said not to be “pissed off” and just have a bowl of cereal or popcorn and watch this train wreck with Looney Tunes Merry melodies playing in the back ground so every time these clowns and marionettes come on TV it sounds like Duffy duck is speaking, Shhhplendid talk for the ages!” Why does it rain every time Duffy Duck Talks or opens hes mouth? Saved by the Boob Tube….Stay tuned folks it only gets better from here! Adios!

The Eagle has landed

Aloha 2016! I can’t believe the journey I just took across the Milky-Way! Had trouble landing the maiden ship back in this part of the universe! Especially after taking what seemed like an eternity (no pun, I’m only 28,000 years old!) I still scratch my head about the whole Hans Solo saga! Who would take out such an intergalactic gentleman, a man’s man and every woman’s dream catch for stability? Only a son influenced and captivated by the dark side can do such a thing! Where is Luke Sky-walker to save us all from this inhumanity……. Ok while that thought simmers and settles in let’s get just a little serious here ok, I mean life is a serious endeavor after all right? I sure don’t feel like poking or swiftly pointing my saliva wet finger in the air to see what has been going on, since I have had this small light years hiatus! For heavens goodness sake we have just finally seen those beautiful “rock-solid-Ice” pictures of Pluto as supplied by NASA what a sight to behold! I mean who would have thought that we could actually have ice-storms and mountains on the Butt of all planets…. Wait something tells me Pluto may not be the only outer region blob of ice, rock and maybe granite that makes up the core of this so far distant planet. It would qualify as frozen hell if we could only send a few earthling prisoners over there especially the ones that bewilder us with their heinous crimes (don’t get me started on that one folks!) I’m just warming up here, but do follow me lets learn together; an effort in intellectual team work here so excuse me for e a few seconds while I clear my throat and organize my synapses to extreme sharpness and electric pulsation! This is where the drums roll as I prepare to use our magic formula: P3B3 = CmX

Before delving into today’s pesky issues on this wonderful planet we call mother earth and even more specific our blessed hinter lands more appropriately called “fruited plains” of these united states of Amerigo (no typo, I will explain that as we plod along!) keep vigil my fellow Americanas.

The only way we can make sense of what I’m about to present to you folks in this super higher learning discovery class of endless intellectual pursuit, is by reading the gem below. Trust me nothing new under the sun as my “uncle Jimmy Slick” would often say with a smoke pipe barely hanging from his mouth!

And below is an excerpt, you know we rip things from the headlines we don’t make any stories up, its all in the proverbial pudding so to speak and ours is a relentless examination. Well lets dive in:

Posted on January 12, 2016;

From Dershowitz’s appearance on Tuesday’s FOX & Friends: Alan Dershowitz: “I Need Armed Guards To Protect Me From Liberals” When I Give Pro-Israel Speeches

Harvard professor and legal eagle Alan Dershowitz talks about political correctness and ‘safe spaces’ on college campuses. Dershowitz tells college students to “stay home” if they want a safe space.
Dershowitz also addresses how safe spaces, such as being threatened for your views, have been conflated with an environment where people “want to be safe from ideas they disagree with.”

DERSHOWITZ: They blame places where people are afraid of ideas. They think they know the truth. And they don’t want to hear opposing points of view. They know everything they need to know about race, about gender, about rape, about you name it, climate control. They don’t want to hear opposing points of view… they want to be kept safe from ideas that they may disagree with. And if they want to be safe from ideas, there are better places to be than college and university campuses…

When I was first teaching in the ’50s there were attempts to censor speech by Senator McCarthy. the right wing was trying to censor left-wing speech. Now it’s the hard left that’s trying to censor right-wing speech, conservative speech, Christian speech, pro-Israel speech, you name it. 

And this idea of safe spaces. We have to distinguish between safe spaces for ideas, where there should be none, and physically safe places where you’re not intimidated or you’re not threatened. And christian speakers, pro-Israel speakers, speakers that are not politically correct today, have their physical safety endangered. 

I know when i speak on college campuses in favor of Israel, I need armed guards protecting me from radical leftist students who would use physical intimidation. They won’t give me a safe space. They won’t give pro-Israel students a safe space. They won’t give Christian students a safe space.

In case our heads are still spinning from the simple question, huh? yes folks that’s what our “higher learning institutions” have become where some of you are sending your precious sons and daughters for what is arguably an elite, expensive “education”, to learn, not how to be a critical thinker or have in-depth analysis of the pros and cons of every side, but just agree and become a monotone drone! I can swear i heard my wise uncle chuckle from down under (not the exotic Kangaroo place) but the under belly of the bay Area, too popular to mention here, he simply said : “Colleges and Universities are now Seminaries” what kind of seminaries are they really? Have the Commies taken over and won the battle of minds and hearts of our kids? Won them over to the dark side or has the regular campus  been abducted by the aliens from one of the Gov’t departments at down town abbey street? The ones with brown shorts and shirts with a red hammer and sickle emblem blazoned across the chest area? Maybe its the penguin sisters who wear necklaces around their necks in modest clothing, praying “hail Mary bless you child full of grace” while smiling and you feel like giving your soul away for penance sake? Could that be the big picture at hand?

Harkens back to the day when we used to bake some nice pancakes and soak it in cream and use them as projectiles into the innocent face of the purveyors of truth, better yet slammed them with eggs as they pompously walk-by with that Victorian wave befitting the queen of all England! Can anyone in this class recall when college students would take to the streets to riot and protest some anti-government or so-called establishment policy: for instance the contentious Vietnam war draft of the late 1960’s or “free speech movement” in the same decade 1964-1965 Berkeley California Riots? they all; seem rooted in the idea that fredom of speech and assembly are a fundamentally protected right under the constitutional banner! By the way, freedom of speech means as intended by the founding Genius Fathers to protect all manner of speech good, bad ugly or offensive! so you may agree or disagree with what someone else says but there is no such thing as the right not to be offended: in other words, I would defend to the death your right to say and speak your mind regardless whether I agree or disagree with what you say or Opine! Powerful stuff, a golden priceless “inconvenience!” Freedom of speech should be a cherished idea that we enjoy in the western world! A generation is being raised that believes, not in freedom of speech but freedom from speech.  Attempting to ban anything that is perceived as “hurtful’ or “hate” speech. With Speech Codes being the norm on a college campus near you! Politically correct speech codes are being adopted? Think California Public school in 2013. Where a decorated Veteran was not allowed to distribute a copy of the constitution including one student who was not allowed to protest the NSA, but only in a confined space not even big enough to accommodate 5 people in a so-called “free speech zone.” Most campuses are now “disinviting” speakers on campus who are deemed controversial. For example Former Secretary of state Condoleezza Rice, David Horowitz, Ann Coulter, Feminist Somali Born Hirsi Ali (islam Critic) and  Director of IMF Kristine Legarde. Hawaii University and others have implemented all these “micro-aggression” rules, which include Trigger warnings that students are about to hear a difficult topic or the right to always feel comfortable. Intellectual comfort is not a right!! What does the audience think? According to a New York Times article; 2014 Rutgers University Student  wanted trigger warnings employed when the book sited classic “Great Gatsby” that apparently posses variety of scenes of misogynistic abusive violence .Campuses are teaching students to look out for any sexist, classicists, racial insensitivity, and misogyny, while policing what is said or heard! This topic shall certainly be revisited as it posits a depth and richness worthy of a 5 part world series documentary drama! i shall not wail nor need a handkerchief at this moment only tears from star gazing, the wonder of the universe we live in! I digress ever momentarily.
