Re: “The Gods of the Copy Book Headings”
Love the quote, but credit the source!
Rudyard Kipling was writing 100 years ago, but most of his work sounds like it was written yesterday. (My favorite poet by a country mile.)
Sometimes I say “From Kipling”, sometimes I say “From the vantage point of 1919”, and sometimes I get lazy and leave it as an exercise to the student. ;-P
During the collapse of Rhodesia the British defense forces were forced by the UN blockade of supplies to order their people to keep their weapons selected to single fire. The intent was to conserve ammo, but the actual result was that they not only conserved ammo - their overall success in firefights went up dramatically.
Apparently the semi-auto “limitation”forced the troops to take deliberate aim for each shot.
Reminiscent of the British general in our American Revolution era who complained to King George that the sneaky continentals “hide behind trees and take deliberate aim.”
So you're saying that in 1968, when the "Great Society" had barely begun to work its evil, that there were alreay enough lawless thugs and thieves in the black community to carry out a riot, with full bellies.
Utter BullCr*p. You have outed yourself as a far-left troll. How could you honestly state such pablum.
There have been many Conservative leaders who have spoken about the destructiveness of dependency.
Every time a positive change that would benefit the black communities was proposed the MSM and RAT politicians would go absolutely ballistic and charge racism.
You are a fraudulent poster who's only purpose is to hide behind your smug arrogant "better than tho" attitude and attack Republicans.
You have repeated failed to even acknowledge the stranglehold the RATs hold over the black vote.
You have yet to list even ONE step you repeated stated that you have undertaken over your years helping the black community.
Instead, every single post is a direct attack on Republicans (with your real target being Conservatives).
If you haven't noticed this site is first and foremost a Conservative site, not a Republican site. If you have any sense of reality you would easily have concluded that most on this site clearly see the RINOs and GOP-e are as much an enemy to Liberty and limited government as the RAT party.
Based on your repeated conclusions, why don't you go to your true home the DUmp and wallow on and on how Conservatives are at fault for the Welfare state.
I can't believe I actually thought you truly spent decades in the poor communities helping fight against tyranny. Looking back on what your wrote it is obvious it was all lies and wrapped around fake generalities.
I fell for your goofy story --lol. You are probably some 20 something, unemployed college student who seethes at Conservatives :) Thanks for the laughs.
Perhaps the mods should review your history.
Read my post at 445. I heartily agree with you. This guy is a sleeper troll.
Before my posting at 445, I went back and read his postings on this thread. It is quite obvious that this guy is a troll, whose only purpose is to attack Conservatives. His posts are full of outright lies about helping the poor community, etc.
He, like most of his hard-left communist comrades on the left exist to destroy our Republic. We should all just mock and laugh at this fraud.
Time for a zot.
You have completely perverted and misrepresented me and my position.
I think you’ve done that yourself.
You tell us “the heart of the black community is love and support”.
You tell us the black community was destroyed by generations of “welfare”.
But you also tell us the black community was already full of thugs and thieves in Baltimore in 1968, rioting at the death of Martin Luther King, when the Great Society had barely begun.
Welfare started long before The Great Society. I worked in the welfare establishment beginning in 1963. It was obvious that the system at that time existed to perpetuate poverty. Were there thugs in 1960’s? When were there not?
Let me add, I was born in 1966, that is the first year of “the way on poverty.” We are 6+ trillion in the hole on that one alone and it has gotten worse, not better. You think that after 46 years, they would learn, but they have not.
So tell us, then, how Vietnamese immigrants, moving here with literally just the shirts on their backs, moved into the same neighborhoods and sent their kids to the same schools, and have lifted themselves and their kids out of those neighborhoods and into the middle class and to college, to where they no longer need welfare?
It's not that no one is addressing your 'thesis' - it's just that most folks recognize it for the nonsense that it is.
Well stated. This thread is being sidetracked by a wholly different issue.
You think our own missile and bomber forces would nuke our own cities? Come on, man.
It could very well come to pass whether he wins ... or loses. The urban masses do not blame Obama for their poverty. They see him as their benefactor. If he loses, they will fear the loss of their perks. If he wins, they see it as a signal to take more.
Urban riots are an old story in Europe. Among the first welfare states was the Kingdom of Naples, where every form of what we know as welfare was institutionalized. But, quartered among the citizens were light cavalry, infantry, and light artillery regiments who were called forth to sweep the streets whenever the food or wine allowance (don't laugh ..welfare bozos in France, Italy, and Argentina still get one!)got cut. The riots were bloody, but brief!
The major difference, as Bracken points out, is going to be that it would be extremely foolish for us to think that the government will automatically take the side of those who would wish to remain peaceful
Wrong again. Those who protect themselves and support their families will outlast and overcome the few mad dogs who try to take what they have.
You’re the one making claims the black community is based on love and support while at the same time saying it’s got thugs and thievs who will riot while also saying that if the welfare payments end there will be no riots.
The libtards at “Wonkette” have discovered the essay.
