PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, WEDNESDAY AUG. 16, 2017) — It is democracy’s sad adjunct to give citizens the illusion of control. This comforting fiction arrives tidally, a strong impulse toward self-governance moved by the inherent gravitational pull of freedom. Drawn up on the flipchart, it sounds good. Reality shows otherwise. Once in, the tide quickly moves, taking our impulse to liberty from featherbeds of idealism into the dangerous whirlpools of day-to-day life. Pragmatism crushes theory.

Human nature, as it turns out, prevents people from sanely governing themselves. Alone, an individual at least has unanimity. Indecision may feel discomforting, but at least one has control over the responses to any situation. Still, “it’s getting hard to be someone,” as John Lennon writes in “Strawberry Fields.” Add another person, and you complicate the matter. Add that third person, and now you have politics. Homo sapiens simply cannot get along.

As a species, we are still in our infancy. On the generous side, the human mammal has 250,ooo years under its belt, on the low side 100,000 (THE PLANET finds the evidence favoring the low figure). Either way, we find ourselves still in the Heinz-ketchup process of evolution, that ingenious method by which life has moved relentlessly forward, upward, and onward into something mimicking design.

And so we find ourselves helpless in all our sophistication, all our technology — the adrenal glands too large, the pre-frontal lobe too small. Come back in a few million years, and perhaps we shall have grown more comfortably into ourselves and our future.

None of us, with our infinitesimal life spans, has a chance. Sadly (or gladly, as the case may be), it appears, neither does the species. It’s probably for the best. Who can mourn such a cruel, pitiful beast as man? The certain heat-death of our solar system, perhaps another 5 billion years away, can only be welcomed with praise and thanksgiving.

——– ooo ——–

The hallmark of any true civilization is the ability to survive its own technological advances. We’ve learned the secrets of the atom, but rather than harnessing this incredible power for peaceful purposes, we’ve created horrible weapons that can, in minutes, turn the earth into a giant cinder, a roasted marshmallow that cannot be eaten, a vaporized s’mores that cannot be swallowed — nothing left to see, no one left to mourn.  Hiroshima, mon amour.

Consequently, should we be surprised at the state we find ourselves in at this moment? The nuclear threat hasn’t been as pronounced since October 1962, and we don’t necessarily mean Kim Jung Un. Kim doesn’t want war and neither do the United States, China, Russia, Japan, or any other country. The Bomb, though, keeps getting smaller. It’s just a matter of time before truly rogue elements (a small band of terrorists, a couple-a-three fruitcakes with money and connections) find themselves with suitcase nukes.

We don’t know how to get along.

Meanwhile, our inner distrust, fear, and lack of security employ an 800-pound non-sequitur such as race to make the most horrible of distinctions. A statue of a great American is ordered down for bad political reasons, and mindless mobs cite race and racism, real or imagined, as an excuse to vomit over idealism’s white dinner jacket. The Rabid Right and the Loon Left have seized upon the flashpoints created by political correctness with religious — which is to say poisonous — fervor. It’s what they deserve, but it’s a tragedy for the rest of the country.

Perhaps in one great act of sympathy, The President should order every American nuclear warhead by land, air, and sea launched to wherever, upon whomever, for whatever.

We just don’t know how to get along. Unless you have a few millions years to wait, we never will.

So put on a happy face …

You’re assuming everyone protesting the taking down of the General Lee statue are part of those groups. You, Jonathan Melle, are WRONG. Dan Valenti opposes taking down these statues, yet I would never think for a moment he’s part of those hate groups.
Trump did not defend these groups. He just pointed out that the Left owns responsibility for the violence too (the murder excluded of course) and not everyone at the protest is part of these hate groups. Trump is correct. But the Left is built on taking no responsibility for anything, just like Hilary and Obama.

Yesterday [8/15/2017], Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter co-introduced a resolution, together with Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal and 30 other members of Congress, urging President Trump to strongly condemn white supremacists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis and other hate groups, and to remove individuals who have supported white nationalists, including Steve Bannon, Stephen Miller, and Sebastian Gorka, from the White House.

The resolution:

Condemns the role of white supremacist, neo-Nazi, KKK and other hate groups in the “Unite the Right” rally and domestic terror attack in Charlottesville;

Denounces the increase in organizing, fear-mongering, racism, anti-Semitism, bigotry and violence perpetrated by white supremacists, neo-Nazis, the KKK and other hate groups;

Offers condolences and sympathies to the families of Heather Heyer, Lt. H. Jay Cullen and Trooper-Pilot Berke M.M. Bates, and urges a quick recovery to those injured;

Strongly urges the president to:

Fire individuals in the White House and Trump administration who have supported or encouraged support for white nationalists;

Quickly and publicly repudiate and denounce white supremacist, neo-Nazi, KKK and other hate groups;

Use all available resources of the Office of the President and the Cabinet to address the growing prevalence of such hate groups domestically; and
Use his office to unite all Americans against hate.

In addition to Shea-Porter and Jayapal, the resolution is co-sponsored by 30 members of Congress: Reps. Frank Pallone (NJ-06), Alcee Hastings (FL-20), Jerrold Nadler (NY-10), Nydia Velazquez (NY-07), Sheila Jackson Lee (TX-18), Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), Adam Smith (WA-09), Barbara Lee (CA-13), Grace Napolitano (CA-32), Raul Grijalva (AZ-03), Steve Cohen (TN-09), Hank Johnson (GA-04), Andre Carson (IN-07), Chellie Pingree (ME-01), Judy Chu (CA-27), Bill Foster (IL-11), Donald Payne Jr. (NJ-10), John Delaney (MD-06), Jared Huffman (CA-02), Mark Pocan (WI-02), Juan Vargas (CA-51), Don Beyer (VA-08), Brendan Boyle (PA-13), Mark DeSaulnier (CA-11), Debbie Dingell (MI-12), Seth Moulton (MA-06), Dwight Evans (PA-02), Ro Khanna (CA-17), Raja Krishnamoorthi (IL-08) and Al Lawson (FL-05).

That’s because North Korea was too busy using all the money Obama gave them to gather the technology to create the nukes. They were busy at the time. If Obama was still president, he would be dealing with the same threats. Even as Obama was giving them billions of dollars and making weak agreements, they were chanting, “Death to America”. Progressives need to re-educate themselves.

I think the point of this article is right on. It does seem to be human nature to find fault with one another.

Did you know that there are 200 different species of squirrels?
And there are 8 different species of bears. It seems that there are many identified species of almost every animal and they don’t all get along with each other. But what about humans? Are there different species among us? If there is such variety among other animal kingdoms why not humans? And if so why don’t we read about it?

Are there slight variations in our genetic makeup that cause us to mistrust one another? there must be…because…

why in the hell would anyone continue to support Donald Trump?? What is the matter with these people and why do they dress so funny? Why do so many of them talk on their phones while they are driving? Why am I so combative this morning? Do I have the gene that drives me to start shit with people I don’t even know?

You have also caused the North Korean leader to back down by working with China to defuse a very dangerous situation that was created in part by your predecessor.

All Mika and Joe are doing is building up their bank balances by pandering to the far left. They are fanning the flames because it gets them ratings. Far left is tuning in to hear Donald Trump put down. Then Mika and Joe run off to their mansion in the hills somewhere and live in peace and quiet while all of the tension they are creating in the country spins out of control. Both MSNBC and CNN are just fanning the flames of hatred and discord in the country. The media and all of these extremists don’t care about the people in this country at all. They just want to win in 2018 and 2020 to further enslave Americans to big government. It’s all about power. Americans need to realize what is happening.

If the right and the left could unite against the hatred all the people of this country would be the winners. The losers would be all those who want to gain power or money or both from spreading hatred.

The Alt Left thinks answering hate with hate and violence with violence will stop these Alt Right hate groups. They are too stupid to realize they are only doing what the Alt Right wants them to do. The Alt Right holds these rallies to entice the Alt Left into these confrontations and these Alt Left fools fall for it. Then the Alt Right uses it as a recruiting tool
Both groups are filled with hatred and violence and none is better than the other. Whether it’s some sick bastard running down a innocent victim in Charlottsville, or some nutcase Bernie lover shooting Republican Senators, they are all wrong and they all need to go away.

Racism was the main target of Du Bois’s polemics, and he strongly protested against lynching, Jim Crow laws, and discrimination in education and employment. His cause included people of color everywhere, particularly Africans and Asians in colonies. He was a proponent of Pan-Africanism and helped organize several Pan-African Congresses to fight for the independence of African colonies from European powers. Du Bois made several trips to Europe, Africa and Asia. After World War I, he surveyed the experiences of American black soldiers in France and documented widespread bigotry in the United States military.

I don’t think Trump is racist or mentally ill. Only a tiny percentage of those who voted for Trump are these white supremacists. 99.9 percent are normal, peace loving, non-violent people. Trump can’t be blamed for who votes for him. Bad people vote for candidates all the time.

Trump called out and condemned the groups by name. I think he would have no problem putting them all in jail if the problem gets even worse as many on this board are threatening that it will.
