Politics / More Psychiatry Means More Shootings
« on: April 27, 2018, 06:26:39 am »

What was going on? When public agencies have difficult children and young adults to deal with, they automatically turn to psychiatric diagnosing and drugging. Previously concerned adult authorities then withdraw their concern and attention because the child is getting “psychiatric treatment.” Caring, empathic and effective psychosocial treatments fall by the wayside.

Politics / Educational Fraud is Rampant . . .
« on: April 25, 2018, 08:55:12 am »

How necessary is college anyway? One estimate is that 1 in 3 college graduates have a job historically performed by those with a high school diploma. According to Richard Vedder, distinguished emeritus professor of economics at Ohio University and the director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity, in 2012 there were 115,000 janitors, 16,000 parking lot attendants, 83,000 bartenders and about 35,000 taxi drivers with a bachelor’s degree.

I’m not sure about what can be done about education. But the first step toward any solution is for the American people to be aware of academic fraud at every level of education.

Politics / A clash of radical Republicans and conservative Democrats
« on: April 20, 2018, 06:18:06 am »

Once again, I must warn readers that the Democrats of that era had almost nothing in common with the Democrat Party of today. In those days, Democrat and conservative were close political synonyms. Democrats North and South might have differed on how to handle slavery issues, preserve the Union, or execute War policies, but they tended to be Jeffersonian Constitutional conservatives. Moreover, the Republican Party of that day was still largely a Whig party with majority sympathies more inclined to big industrial, railroad, shipping, and banking interests and consolidated national power. The Radical Republicans that dominated the Republican Party for more than a decade after Lincoln’s assassination were dedicated to ruthlessly preserving their own power and prosperity with only nominal lip service to the common good. Lincoln was a big-business-big-government “moderate,” who the Radicals did not trust to smash any possibility of Southern cultural or Jeffersonian political recovery.

Politics / My Star is Rising! . . .
« on: April 10, 2018, 06:47:31 am »

Social media cheered last week after Trump stated that he would be withdrawing troops from Syria – that it wasn’t our fight, we weren’t winning it, and it wasn’t worth doing.   Yesterday afternoon, Trump now speaks about a Syrian-Russian-Iranian axis and how we are going to rain fire and get justice, I’m paraphrasing but does it matter?

Trump’s basic instincts were right, but his emergent staff choices tell a different story.

Somebody call Yossi, I’m ready to report to duty!  Kidding aside, there could be a simple explanation for all of this – the best way for a president to stay out of court and possibly jail is to start a war, or at least shoot some missiles, preferably at a place that won’t shoot any back at you.  With the deep state reactionaries gunning nonstop for Trump, his lawyers, his businesses, and his family, he may be just following the well-worn path of those who went before him.

Politics / End Socialization of Infrastructure . . .
« on: April 07, 2018, 06:01:58 am »

The opposite of “privatize everything” is really “communize everything” or “socialize everything”. Results include gross injustices, wealth redistribution to favored individuals, gross inefficiencies, waste, malinvestments, congestion, over-investments, under-investments, ground rent windfalls, takings, favoritism to certain businesses, mal-location of housing and business, destruction of neighborhoods with many bad effects of their own, and mal-location of people’s homes and jobs.

Politics / Anarchy and Voluntaryism . . .
« on: April 07, 2018, 05:35:22 am »

And getting more dangerous as the State grows more powerful. The growth of the State is actually destroying society. Over the last 100 years the State has grown at an exponential rate, and it’s the enemy of the individual.

Politics / …the right of the people to keep and bear Arms…
« on: April 06, 2018, 06:41:25 am »

The progressive/leftist push for infringing the right to keep and bear arms has no constitutional legs to stand on and still less of a natural rights basis. It has no pragmatic basis either, but that’s another story. All it has is misdirected emotion.

Politics / Letter to Tulsa School Board President
« on: March 31, 2018, 12:40:51 pm »

Education Service Center
3027 S. New Haven Ave.
Tulsa, OK  74114                                                                    3/16/18

Dear President Schreiber,

  Enclosed you will find a True History CD and you may feel free to make all the copies you wish, or you can just toss it in the  trash, as I am sure many have been over the years.  Our history is being slandered, lied about, and rewritten in order to pacify a few disgruntled, uneducated people who have been indoctrinated with Marxist rewritten history. The continual attacks on all things Southern and Confederate is nothing less than cultural genocide perpetrated by cultural terrorists and has the distinct smell of Nazism all over it.  Our schools are supposed to be in the business of education, not indoctrination.  The truths contained in this CD are not taught in our schools.  Why?  Because it does not fit the socialist agenda which has been pushed for over 150 years.  The truth is not always a pretty thing.  The truth about Lincoln is not pretty.  The truth about the Northern armies illegally invading the South and burning, looting, murdering, and raping their way across the South is not pretty.  The fact that African slaves were brought here by Yankee slave ships is not “convenient” to be taught.  The fact that there were free blacks who owned slaves is not “convenient” to be taught.  The fact that the War of Northern Aggression was NOT waged to free the slaves, but to force the legally seceded states back into the union for the purpose of collecting excessive tariffs, to plunder its natural resources, and to implement a large centralized government is not “convenient” to be taught.  The truth is, if the real history of the War had been taught all these years, we would not be seeing this cultural genocide taking place resulting in the destruction and removal of our statues and flags, and the renaming of parks, streets, and schools.

   The saying of “garbage in, garbage out” has never been more true than when it comes to the issue of education.  A perfect example is the recent student walkouts due to “gun violence”.  These kids have been indoctrinated to believe a socialist agenda and are demonstrating to have their rights taken away. Let me repeat; they are marching for the government to take away a right given by God and guaranteed in the Constitution.  This is the result of indoctrination, just as the marching against the Confederate Battle Flag and Confederate statues is the result of indoctrination.  We need to be teaching the truth, not some Marxist leftist ideology.  We need to teach the Constitution.  We need to teach the real reasons for the War.  We need to teach the horrors of Reconstruction.  We need to teach about WWII and the holocaust.  We need to teach about the evils of communism and the millions of people murdered by communist dictators in the 20th century.  The erasing of our history by renaming schools, parks, and streets is just plain wrong. These Confederate heroes were not fighting to preserve and perpetuate slavery, and neither were the Northern armies fighting to abolish slavery.  The simple truth and facts are readily available, but people don’t want to hear the truth. 

   When people disagree on an issue, both sides should listen to what the other side has to say.  We Confederates have listened for 150+ years to what the North, media, and academia has to say, but nobody wants to listen to what WE have to say.  The facts are clearly not with the orthodox teachings of our history which has gone on for far too long.  Changes need to be made.  Are you at least willing to read what our side has to say about history?

Unreconstructed,

Jeff Paulk
Tulsa, OK
