The Hope of Christmas is the Significance of Each of Us

 By Chuck Marshall 




     I must apologize for slacking on my little blog here.  It has been such a joy to ignore the news this past few months,  I've been having a hard time going back to it.  I suppose I must., but it was nice while it lasted.  I think we should all take a break from the realities of the world and just live in our micro world with our families and friends and coworkers and local communities every once in a while to get a respite.  Enjoy them for what they are.  The bad news will continue as long as the media sees it attracts eyeballs and a good percent of the public is addicted to what they serve.  So, I understand the situation and I wish I could stay in my hole but in the New Year 2022 I will work to get back into the realities of our "Age of Incompetence" and the reign of "Mad King George" (if you don't know what that means, read my blog from a few months back- April 14th "Vaccines for all brought to you by Mad King George"  https://chuckmarshall.blogspot.com/2021/04/vaccines-for-all-brought-to-you-by-mad.html  ".)  

     Anyway, as I wrap up 2021 and 'splain myself a little, I pause to honor the season.  I'm not speaking of all the puffery of Christmas.  The holiday of Christmas is nearly 100% bogus because it's based on a Roman pagan holiday that enveloped the Christian faith as the Roman Empire adopted and absorbed it back in the 300-400's AD.   December 25th was a sacred Roman holiday and that's why we celebrate on the 25th.  So, the details of the holiday are based on lies.  Much of what the Romans did to the Christian faith was an instrument of the Catholic church (the Catholics were a Christian sect in Rome that merged their beliefs with pagan Roman holidays in order to gain favor with the powers of Rome).  Their beliefs in Priests and Nuns and other forms of control through ceremony were obvious pagan forms of worship that have nothing to do with Jesus Christ but everything to do with  public opinion of the day and their greed for power that lasted 1000 years.  Catholics stomped out all other Christian sects over the next few centuries in order to fill the power vacuum created by the fall of the Roman Empire.  That's just the facts.  

     But, let me step back and elaborate a little without getting too deep into my own faith.  I honor the Christmas season because of what it truly says and conveys to the human race.  What it says is that we have a purpose no matter how humble we begin in life as individuals.  At the beginning of this life we are all equal in the eyes of our Creator.  What we do with our lives is up to us, and nobody else.  We are here to grow and learn and mature as spiritual beings and that could also mean failure.  There is hope because,  if you're open to it, that Creator is with you and ready to help you- although not according to your specific dictations or wants, necessarily.   The Holy Trinity is the concept that the Father created us, the Son assured us, and the Holy Spirit dwells within us.  These can only be true if you accept them as true, that is, if you have faith even against great adversity such as being born in poverty or being crucified for standing for your principles.   You will be inspired to do good for other people because you want to not because it's what's expected.  Not "to be seen by others" as Jesus regarded the religious leaders of his time.  In the end there will be comfort and resurrection because you're inspired to love on your own.    


"Although the Lord gives you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, your teachers will be hidden no more;  with your own eyes you will see them.  Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying "This is the way;  walk in it"."  Isaiah 30:20-21.  

Merry Christmas Readers !

Victims Anonymous

By Chuck Marshall
     

The Badge of Honor for Virtue Signaling Dilettantes 

     
     Here in the days of incompetence, (that seem unending with their recurrence of abundant stupidity as society grovels down to the lowest levels to make itself feel better about itself),  there is a common thread that ties the stupidity together in a nice, neat bow;  Victimhood.  

     Everywhere you go there are new victims to be coddled for the benefit of MKG (*Mad King George) to electrify the masses so that they should drop everything and change their lives and their minds to offer up themselves as being sympathetic to MKG's flavor of the month.  Virtue Signaling is the national fad.   Be it mask wearing, vaccine taking, climate change, gender identity, minorities, women, sexual preference,  pregnant women, unpregnant women, childless women, black women, latina women, asian women (and all their male counterparts but to a less extent),  atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, New Age Crystal worshipers, numerologists- and I could go on for a page or two.  All of  it needs attention and sympathy or you're a slime bag for not offering it up in full throttle support.   You're being anti "XYZ" !!!  "You're a racist! " The answer to help these poor pitiful victims, is of course,  within our marvelous Federal government (the crown jewel of MKG) and all its might and glory and trillions of dollars.  (never mind that these trillions don't actually exist- but that's for another blog)  

      Some aspects of these situations are really problems, but it becomes less important as the mob demands full support and any questions whatsoever are glared at as racist, homophobic, anti-science, anti-minority, etc....  You get the picture !  Any time questions are not permitted regarding a topic, then I know that's where the trouble lies.  MKG continues to grow in power and importance because he knows the vulnerabilities of the people and their tendency to want to fix a problem.   He also knows that virtue signaling is the easiest way to look as if he's exerting effort, even when he's not.   The Age of Incompetence dictates that any problem can only be fixed by MKG.  Any other options are not worth pursuing.  So don't even try. 

    The reality is that compromise and discussion and answering ALL questions and concerns of ALL the people is where the solutions lie.  It's not just the victims and their virtue signaling dilettantes that should hold the power of decisions and public discussion.  Attention must be paid to the questions, and often these questions are held by the majority of the people but they're afraid to ask for the tyranny of MKG.   The reality is ALL Americans are victims of an incompetent and useless government that has become incapable of leading or governing and is beholden to the powerful and moneyed and all Mad King George's minions in the media, Hollywood, academia, etc...  

In My Humble Opinion.....

**Mad King George is my label for the ruling class.  This includes the federal government, the two party system of elections,  mainstream media, the political parties themselves, big corporate,  Hollywood, government lobbyists, and academia.   All the pigs at the trough, in other words.  Much like our forefathers fought off Mad King George and his pandering, tyrannical ways we can dream of removing the heads of these stuffed shirts, corporate elites, government bureaucrats and virtue signaling ass-wipes.

"Vaccine" Passports and Other Orwellian Concepts

 By Chuck Marshall 

     




     I wrote a blog on the vaccine back in the spring when it was still in its infancy as a topic of our current historic times that I refer to as the "Age of Incompetence" (or "L'age De l'incompetence in French because everything sounds better in French).  That was the blog where I introduced the concept of "Mad King George".   MKG is simply an easier way of listing out the usual culprits behind the weirdness of the lying mass media and our gargantuan  government beholden to the large corporations and foreign countries.  This group includes Hollywood and their orgy of self-importance and all manner of modern "virtue signaling" that lays blame for all failure on anyone who succeeds (this includes anyone going back to the beginning of human history).   Above all, of course, it's the dingbat political parties and their never-ending war and refusal to compromise on anything other than national holidays or on how many trillions of our dollars  they will be spending this month.  Mad King George.  But really,  "Mad King George" is a label I came up with because of my interest in history and our revolution that established Liberty as an essential part of being human.  In retrospect, I think Big Brother fits the bill better with regard to ideas like the vaccine passports, etc.. Big Brother has more the sense of the ruling class watching us and making our decisions for us "for the common good".  Mad King George may be too nice for this group.  

     So, anyway I wanted to address the vaccine news to be more current because it has gotten even dumber than when I wrote the first blog so I need to "update the stupidity" as it were.   

     1)  NYC has restricted citizens from eating in restaurants or working out in gyms unless they can prove they've been vaccinated. The good news, I guess,  is that restaurants and gyms are open at all !  

    2)  President Biden has demanded that all US Companies with more than 100 employees require all their employees get vaccinated or be terminated.  "My body, my choice"  does not apply to so called "vaccines" but does apply to unborn children.  It gets confusing if you think about it, so Big Brother would prefer you not think about it.  

    3)  After discussing the vaccine for many months it has revealed itself as the world's first vaccine that is not a vaccine.  It does not prevent you from getting the virus but it does keep you from getting really sick.  Okay, so everyone should get the vaccine but pay no attention to the fact that it's not really a vaccine.  *Note-  I did get the vaccine and I DID get sick with COVID19.  

    4)  If you did not know,  you should be aware that the Pharmaceutical companies that produce the "vaccines" are not liable if something should go wrong with the "vaccines".  That, coupled with the fact that the "vaccine" has NOT been approved by the FDA except in cases of an "emergency" turns this vaccine into history's largest experiment with the human population all while the entire world is watching.    It's "probably Okay", they tell us.  All this at the great urgency of left leaning government leaders and their cheerleaders in the mainstream media.  

    5)  If you decide you don't want to get the vaccine because you are concerned about the risks of getting it you're out of luck.  The government and all the ruling class have deemed it essential you take the vaccine or millions will die because of your thoughtlessness.  But, I thought the vaccine was to prevent them from dying ?  There I go again, thinking it through.  Sorry Big Brother ! 

 

     In conclusion, the meaning of liberty is to be able to make decisions for yourself and your family that you feel are best for you given your beliefs, concerns while weighing the risks of taking the action or not taking the action.  That's Democracy.  That's the people making the decision.   The chance of getting on an airplane and catching COVID19 from another passenger and then dying are 1 in 60,000.  The chances of dying in a car accident in your lifetime are 1 in 115.  I understand putting on a seat belt, but I don't get forcing the entire world's population to take a "vaccine" that is unproven, that won't actually prevent you from getting the virus for something that is less dangerous than driving in a car on any given day.  The chances you or I will get cancer in our lifetime are 1 in 7.   One in 60,000 VS 1 in 7.  That's a statistic worth paying attention to.  Our lifestyle decisions to prevent cancer are significantly more important than all the rabble about this vaccine.  But, at the end of the day, that doesn't get headlines 'nor fatten the pockets of pharmaceuticals, 'nor give our government and media another chance to instruct us on how to live our lives.  It gives them no control over us and so is therefor, of no interest.

Ending My Hiatus - September 2021 - Let the Roasting Resume

 By Chuck Marshall


Dear excellent readers, 

     I took a break from this blog for a few months to rest my weary brain and get my blood pressure under control.  Not to mention  I've been very busy at work !  Plants are in fashion "BIG TIME", thanks in large part to the CORONA Virus, COVID virus, Wuhan Virus, Chinese Virus, etc....  Folks stayed at home and got busy planting  and adoring plants.  They bought a lot of plants.  I mean a lot !  I mean we have a new kitchen and two new cars "a lot".  Good year for me  but I am sincerely sorry for all the tragedy of death and sickness.  Hopefully my industry helped a lot of people get through it with the joy of growing and tending to houseplants and yards.  I see plants as frozen testament to God's creativity and love for this planet, they are God's canvas and their colors and behavior are his brushstrokes.

     During my time off I actually got the COVID virus, and I did indeed live to tell about it because here I am writing my thoughts for all the world to see once again.  Here I am available to irritate and bloviate on modern times and its inane talking heads- in government, big business, entertainment/media- although really the three are inseparable.   Like the trinity God-Head, they are separate but the same.   "Mad King George" as I have taken to refer to the ruling class and all their minions that really "run things" in America and the world.  I do refer to them as MKG with some hesitation because I don't think King George III was nearly as bad as they are.  No, they are especially fetid group of human seepage that lie, cheat, steal, and vomit out a life of disgusting self congratulations.  They rob us of our  our liberty under the auspice of  "emergencies" and "for our protection" when it's really the protection of their money and their power that most concerns them.  They lay out a list of pitiful victims that they purposely demean so as to remove any sense of pride under the premise that someone else is always to blame.   This, when in reality it is they themselves- our opinion leaders- that are the culprit of defeat and the source of abject racism and sexism through this very act of psychological brainwashing !    "The poor minority folk can't make due so we have to help them out" they say.  Where would the world be without the white liberal "progressives" helping out the pathetic ?  But, don't expect them to actually DO anything to fix it !  No,  they are just there to celebrate victimhood and get a charge out of their own concern and their great willingness to give away other people's money.  Say whatever it takes to get the vote.   Such Hypocrisy !  "Woe to the scribes and pharisees!!" as the Lord put it.  The world's leaders today (in all aspects of modern society) are a loathsome group of toads that have outdone all horrendous leaders in history for their avarice and lack of concern for anyone but themselves and their fellow cronies.  Their ingratiating "concern" for the downtrodden.  Their patronizing gifts to help out the miserable.  Their self aggrandizing solutions to problems they themselves helped create.  Their charity with OUR blood, sweat and tears.  Oh for the days of the guillotine !

Racial Divide in America: Spoon Feeding Opinions

 By Chuck Marshall 

                                                 How the Mainstream Media Sees Us 

     I've been avoiding the news this past several months so as a consequence the mood to write in this blog has been somewhat diminished.  The media provides so much fodder with their inane commentary and idiotic rhetoric that it compels me to write about the current topics, so when I'm on a "news strike" then I sort of lose my "mojo" as it were.  So lately my inspiration seems to come more as reaction to the overall activities of *Mad King George, not any specific news event.  

     When I'm at the gym, however, I do see snippets of their stupidity because one can hardly avoid it.  There it is on all 15 screens they have blaring at me as I struggle on the treadmill.  I can see the talking heads "blah, blah, blah" spoon feeding the masses with the "flavor of the month".  For some reason they're blabbing about the riots from last summer  (I have no idea why)  and I got to thinking about race in America.  

     I am not going to make this an elaboration on racial divide in America because everybody has an opinion and I think its been discussed enough in the American public square to last many lifetimes.  Racism is a human problem not just an American problem.  The reason it seems to flare up a lot here in the United States is because *Mad King George won't shut up about it.  I see the media as the instigator of racial violence in our country.  There are other players (in other words, "benefactors")  in the orbit of Mad King George's rhetoric,  but the media is the lead actor.  Why ?  Because it's profitable !  I don't really know how we can stop that, after all the Free Press is important and the Bill of Rights guarantees that freedom,  but it never mentions honesty and/or greed, unfortunately.  (That topic is for another day).  

     Here's the pattern;  Someone gets killed by a cop.  If it's any race other than a black person it's mostly ignored.  If it's a black person the media digs deep to see how it could be exposed as a racist cop or an act of racism.  If there's any question about the fairness of the situation, the media stirs the pot of "racism in America" almost begging folks in the ghettos to get out and start burning things down.  The riots start, glass breaks, fires break out and "lo and behold" the media is there to film it all.  Ratings go up.  Profits go up.  If *Mad King George is lucky even more people will die or a significant property (for some reason Target is always a target)  will be destroyed so the story becomes a self perpetuating money machine.  White man is bad, and the black man is a victim.  Of course they ARE right but not in the way they portray it.  The bad white man is an executive sitting behind a mahogany desk in New York egging on his talking heads to stir the pot as much as possible until the story is burnt out.   The black victim is sitting in his burnt out neighborhood that will be considered an economic corpse for years and even decades.  What's even worse, his mindset will be even more a victim mindset causing more poverty and hardship for him and his family.   *Mad King George rules with an iron fist and cares not one iota that he's  ruining the lives of our African American brothers and sisters and destroying property of private citizens.    Go to hell *Mad King George.  


**Mad King George is my label for the ruling class.  This includes the federal government, the mainstream media, the political parties, big corporate,  Hollywood, government lobbyists (and the crony corporate welfare they enable),  and academia.   All the pigs at the trough, in other words.  Much like our forefathers fought off Mad King George and his pandering tyrannical ways we can dream of removing the heads of these stuffed shirts, corporate elites, government bureaucrats and virtue signaling ass-wipes.
