Mischief Makers

Here are some other Ivy League graduates you should know about.

Why?

Because they are affecting the education of your children.

The first is Wendy Kopp of Teach for America. Wendy is the founder.

The second is Richard Barth, her husband, who currently heads KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program).

Wendy is a Princeton graduate, and Richard is a Harvard graduate.

Both are, of course, malicious overachievers and busybodies at large. They just can’t leave racist America alone.

While cleansing America of its racist past, they are, of course, collecting accolades, awards, and most likely a lot of cash for themselves.

Wendy’s organization, TFA, is really a pyramid scheme for accolades. You might even call it a Ponzi scheme too. Instead of money being accumulated, its followers accumulate awards and accolades that they can then use to infiltrate the media and Corporate America in order to further cleanse America of its racist past.

Here is a link to TFA’s site: https://www.teachforamerica.org/tags/racial-justice/article.

You can scroll to the bottom and read about their organization.

TFA seems fixated on Columbus.

Yes, it’s true, Columbus was not the first settler to happen upon America, but guess what?

Maybe the Native Americans (First Nations to the sophisticated) weren’t either.

The Native Americans (Indians) came from somewhere else (Siberia?), and, for all we know, rubbed out some people who were living here when they first arrived 15,000 years ago.

Of course, to Wendy and TFA, and board members of TFA like Paul Finnegan, another Harvard graduate, and member of Harvard’s elite ruling board entitled “The Corporation,” Columbus was most likely an usurper.

Of course the real usurpers are the Ivy Leaguers like Wendy, Richard, Paul, and their Ivy League buddies who parasitize American society.

But I digress. To Wendy and Richard’s thinking, I presume, how dare Columbus be given the title of discoverer of America?

TFA probably also believes that Columbus was a genocidal maniac. Well, maybe he was, but he also was responsible for uncovering the New World to our ancestors.

Surprise, that’s why you’re here. That’s why Wendy and Richard are here. Paul too.

TFA is a racket, cloaked in nobility, to socially re-engineer society to ultimately work against you. Its work will never be done. It will focus on grievances until the end of time.

Americans, if left to the machinations of TFA, will become race-obsessed, balkanized and ever more dependent upon the political class which desires a neo-feudal society where people like Wendy Kopp, Richard Barth, and their puppets can rule for a thousand years.

Welcome to the new Dark Ages.

Sincerely,

Trouble in Colombia

Why is Colombia in trouble?

Well, we can probably start with the president, Ivan Duque.

He’s just another rich guy, who comes from a wealthy family, who is out of touch with how regular people live.

He went to school at Georgetown and American University, so it’s good bet that he is one of the American empire’s boys.

He’s there in Colombia to do what the United States wants him to do.

And he’s doing just that.

There are many factors which are contributing to Colombia’s problems. A lot of them though are the result of US policy and what the US wants.

Let’s begin with the FARC guerrillas. A few years ago, the government made an agreement with the guerrillas that Duque has been slow in implementing.

The FARC would lay down their arms, and the government in turn would protect them from reprisals.

So far the government has not been fully living up to its part of the deal.

This is not surprising as the US has a track record of not honoring agreements that it or its allies have signed.

Why should we be surprised? The US government reneged on all its treaties with the American Indians. It reneged on its deal with Iran just a few years ago.

You can’t trust the US government. The US government is immoral.

The longer Mr. Duque persists in slow-walking the terms of the agreement, the more unrest he will see in the countryside.

The unrest doesn’t come about solely because FARC guerrillas are being killed. The FARC guerrillas existed in the first place because the government wouldn’t give the peasants the basics in education, health and economic opportunity.

The unrest will therefore persist as long as people are impoverished.

People are impoverished because there is unequal distribution of wealth in Colombia. In other words the wealthy are too greedy.

Compounding this is Colombia‘s dependence upon oil. Their economy is great as long as the price of oil is high, but when the price of oil dips, then people feel the pinch.

Labor unions obviously want more money for their workers.

The government’s response to that has been to kill them.

Well, when people get killed, they tend to get angry and rebel.

One way that leaders typically use to get out of a cash crunch, which is what Colombia is in, is to borrow money from the IMF (International Monetary Fund) or other capital sources.

Typically this doesn’t work for the country, but leaders who the US controls usually do it anyway.

Such an arrangement benefits the banks, the US, and the corrupt leaders of those countries, but rarely does it benefit the people.

This is how it works.

The international monetary fund, or major US banks, loan shitloads of money to the corrupt leader. He borrows money out the ass from these institutions, then steals a good percentage of that money which he then deposits in accounts that are controlled by or allied with the banks that loaned him the money in the first place. Then when the people see what’s going on, they kick the corrupt leader out. He then runs away to Florida where the US give him safe harbor; meanwhile the people are stuck paying back those huge loans which they of course can not pay back except for the interest.

The people then live in perpetual servitude to the United States.

This is the economic model that the United States and their criminal brothers in the UK have set forth for much of the world.

Ivan Duque is just a cog in that economic model.

In addition to that, he is providing sanctuary to many Venezuelans who are fleeing Nicolas Maduro’s regime. This has placed great stress on the Colombian economy.

Why is he giving sanctuary to these Venezuelans?

Well, nothing happens in Columbia unless the US desires it.

The sanctuary probably exists as cover to create a government and paramilitary force in exile which will one day march on Caracas.

Furthermore, having refugees fleeing a despotic regime is good pretext for getting in there and doing something.

Venezuela, and its oil is the goal.

You see, the US wants that oil.

The US doesn’t need the oil for its own needs because the US is a net exporter of oil.

But China does.

The US wants to control the world’s oil so that they can hold China over a barrel.

In addition to that, if the US controls the majority of the world’s oil, they can flood the world with oil thus driving the price down. In this manner they can damage the Russian economy which is heavily dependent upon oil sales.

For those reasons, the US has no desire to see anyone else control the world’s oil.

That’s why the US wants Iran. That’s why the US wants Venezuela.

Oil.

It’s a dog eat dog world.

And since the world’s economy is pegged to the petrodollar, the US has no desire to see the petrodollar go away.

If that should happen, the inflation in the United States would go through the roof as countries dumped their dollars.

Currently every country in the world must buy oil in US dollars. The US through its military mandates this by force.

These factors are driving US policy.

These factors explain what’s going on in Colombia.

Sincerely,

My Mission

When I was young I wanted to get married and have a family.

I asked the Lord for this, and the Lord said no.

Disappointed but desiring gifts I asked to be rich. If I couldn’t be married with a family, I figured I might as well be a billionaire. That way I could do a lot of neat things in technology. I had a lot of ideas.

So I asked the Lord to give me riches.

But the Lord said no.

OK then, I thought, if I can’t be married, if I can’t be rich, maybe I could become famous.

So I asked the Lord to give me fame.

No, said the Lord.

I was really starting to get desperate now, so I cried out to the Lord: Okay, if I can’t be married, if I can’t be rich, if I can’t be famous, what can I be? What is my purpose in life? What is my mission?

The Lord looked at me and said: Your mission is to enter the continent of North America and destroy Harvard University.

What, I exclaimed.

The Lord looked at me and said: I am not going to repeat myself. You heard what I said.

Enter the continent of North America and destroy Harvard University? You’re crazy, I said to the Lord.

Harvard is too big, I added. And I am too small.

The Lord said that he would help me.

I can’t do it, I replied. I don’t have the talent. I don’t have the smarts, and I sure as shit don’t have the connections and the foot soldiers.

The Lord: I’ve made up my mind.

You don’t know what you’re talking about, I said to the Lord. I live here on planet earth, not in some ethereal Walt Disney World. We eat people down here.

I patiently enumerated the obstacles I was up against. I spoke about cognitive dissonance, the total indoctrination of the American people, how Harvard graduates have been promoted in the media as geniuses and living gods, how Harvard has invaded all our major institutions, that many people have undying loyalty to Harvard University, and that many people do not see or are unwilling to see the harm that Harvard has done to America. I added that I was in the minority.

I was hoping that a calm demeanor might win the day.

The Lord did not respond. He appeared resolute.

Out of the corner of my eye I noted the Lord tapping his foot in the manner of someone who has heard this type of excuse-making many times before as if to say: Are all you people the same?

You’re betting on the wrong horse, I added.

At that point, I guess the Lord got a little upset, and so he read me the Job speech.

He asked me where I was when he had created the heavens and the earth.

I must admit, I didn’t have a good response to that.

And so I was compelled to accept the Lord’s mission he had set out for me.

Enter the continent of North America and destroy Harvard University.

Now, of course, it didn’t really happen that way. I didn’t really have any direct conversation with the Lord as you and I would know it, but over the years my life amounted to the same thing.

Sincerely,

COVID-19 and Harvard

Here is a PDF you can download regarding COVID-19. The file is rather extensive, so you will have to zoom in; however, the print should appear crystal clear. Some of the information may be too technical for you. If that is the case, you can review the non-technical information to get a global overview of what I am trying to sell you.

In a nutshell what I am trying to sell you is the following:

  • Harvard’s power as the absolute monarch in the United States of America if not the world. 
  • Harvard’s dense involvement and interconnectedness with all of our major institutions. 
  • Harvard’s past record of racism and criminality against the American people and the black community. 
  • Harvard’s record of deception and lying in general affairs. 
  • Harvard’s leadership in the research of malaria and genetics. 
  • The connections between genetics, malaria research and COVID-19. 
  • Harvard’s control of the NEJM. The NEJM’s deception in the management and treatment of COVID-19. 
  • Harvard’s control of the CIA, an immoral organization. 
  • Harvard’s complicity in America becoming a fascist state, a clone of Nazi Germany. 
  • Harvard’s cozy relatiionship with NIH, Pfizer, and Moderna.
  • The extensive involvement of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in malaria research. 
  • Harvard’s culpability in creating this pandemic and transforming it into a catastrophe.

Racism for a Reason

Why do we suddenly see this effort to depict Americans as racist?

The effort is coming about because Corporate America desires to shift the blame away from itself. It was Corporate America that destroyed the black community. It was Corporate America that shipped well-paying jobs overseas. It is Corporate America that runs a corporate prison racket.

First let’s define Corporate America. Corporate America is more than just the Fortune 500 companies. Corporate America involves all the major corporations, Ivy League schools, think tanks, new Ivy League schools, associations, foundations, NGOs, governments, sports leagues, media outlets, and any other large concern in the nation and the world.

If you don’t despise Harvard University by now, you should. Harvard University is the main force in fueling Corporate America’s rise to power. That’s why Harvard exists.

Harvard University does not exist to train people to work at McDonalds, the railroad, or the Bakken oil play.

Harvard University exists to train the officers of Corporate America. Now, it doesn’t necessarily follow that you will work for Corporate America when you leave Harvard; you are totally free to do what you want. But it is unlikely that you will do so after attending Harvard. And that is because Harvard spends an enormous amount of energy indoctrinating you into the halls of power while you are there. When you attend Harvard, you will meet so-called important people in all walks of life. You will meet the rich. You will meet the Supreme Court justices. You will meet famous actors and top CEOs. You will meet the heads of hedge funds and venture capital firms. You will meet and go to school with the children of wealthy people. Along the way you will become indoctrinated.

It’s a cult, and they are looking for a few good men and women.

Now, this in itself is not a reason to despise Harvard University.

Why you should despise Harvard University occurred before many of you were born.

The United States in the early part of the 20th century was largely decentralized in terms of power. Regional businesses ran the show. Family businesses ran the show. Yes, there were national corporations at the time, but these national corporations were really large regional businesses. Ford Motor Company was a regional business that became extremely large. America had not reached the point at which national titans, headquartered in NY, had become emotionally and physically distanced from their workers.

Consequently these large regional businesses, which sent products all over the United States, were run by men who took care of their workers. They lived near their workers, and they possessed a sense of noblesse oblige. Remember, Henry Ford was a mechanic who made it big. He was a regular guy.

As the years progressed and companies like Ford got bigger, there became a need for more professional management. This is where Harvard University and the Ivy League come in. There was a need to train people in modern methods of finance, accounting, advertising, and marketing. In time, the Ivy League became the principal training ground for Corporate America.

As long as the new titans of Corporate America supplied by Harvard University displayed that sense of noblesse oblige and took care of the workers, there would be no problem.

A line worker at GM in the 1970s could make $75,000 a year in today’s money. That was enough money to buy a small house, send the kids to college, and keep the family together on the straight and narrow path to a better life.

What happened was that the new titans of Corporate America, people like Michael Milken and Mitt Romney, did not feel that sense of noblesse oblige. Instead, they looked upon the American worker with contempt. They viewed these workers as ignorant union goons, not worthy of their lofty Ivy League presence. Consequently they had no qualms about outsourcing jobs or helping others to outsource jobs.

So what they did was this. They bought up these regional businesses through their hedge funds and holding companies, laid off the workers, shipped the jobs out to China where they could pay 1/25th of the labor cost, and sold the existing machinery and buildings to the highest bidder.

By doing so they were able to increase the profit margin of the company.

While they were screwing the American worker, they were also screwing the American investor. Here’s how they did it. They took control of the board room and began to award themselves hundreds of thousands if not millions of stock shares and stock options for doing nothing save their regular job. This diluted shareholder value.

Dividends were for suckers. The concept of a growth stock came into being. This was abetted by business shows on emerging cable outlets whose giddy hosts whooped it up on every stock market high.

The Dow Jones average became a national obsession. You couldn’t even watch a wrestling match without the Dow flickering on the screen below.

When the profit margins increased as they could only do when you pay 1/25th of the normal labor costs to Chinese workers, the CEO and his henchmen’s stock value rose which then transformed them into billionaires.

That’s how Mitt “Harvard” Romney got rich. That’s how Carl “Princeton” Icahn got rich. That’s how Michael “Wharton School” Milken got rich. They facilitated this process.

That’s why Oliver Stone made the movie Wall Street. Gordon Gekko is a representation of the Ivy League scum that raped America.

Not only did these Ivy Leaguers, like Lee “Princeton” Iacocca, rape America through stock options and stock shares, they awarded themselves fantastic salaries and severance packages.

This has continued to this day. Only a few years ago Marissa Mayer was awarded $264 million in her severance package for doing an average job at Yahoo.

This is the apotheosis of greed.

This greed has wreaked havoc on the American family. With that nice $75,000 per year salary gone, blue-collar families experienced extreme financial distress. This manifested itself in divorce, psychological problems, increased drug use, increased crime, suicide, spousal abuse, child abuse, and all sorts of other social ills.

The black community was hit particularly hard. Much of the devastation that you see in the black community has come about because of outsourcing of jobs.

In addition to outsourcing jobs, Corporate America made the decision to get into the prison business. This was very lucrative for them. Plus, they needed something to replace those factories that they had shipped overseas. The black community must have seemed ideal to them. And so they made sure that there would be plenty of black prisoners for their corporate prison racket. One way to ensure that was to destabilize the black community with drugs. In the early 1980s, Corporate America‘s thug agency, the CIA, ran drugs into the black community in Los Angeles. We know this because Gary Webb of the San Jose Mercury News told us what they were doing in his Dark Alliance series.

This is why you see utter devastation in the black community. It has nothing to do with racism on the part of your average white guy. It was Corporate America that destroyed the black community. It is Corporate America that conducts racism against black people.

It’s Corporate America that hires the race hustlers to effectively herd many black folk into nonproductive fits of rage and frustration.

It’s Corporate America that is financing Black Lives Matter.

Corporate America wants black people to burn down their neighborhoods.

Your average white guy in Paducah can’t afford to be a racist. He’s moved well beyond Bull Connor of the 1950s. That guy in his small shop needs all the good help he can get. He couldn’t care less if a person is black, yellow, red, or polkadot.

He also doesn’t care who his purchasers are. He’ll take all the business he can get.

The real discrimination is coming from Corporate America. You hear people complain about this all the time on television. You see it in the NFL where opportunities are denied to black people when it comes to hiring coaches and general managers.

You can also see it when the NFL disciplines its players. If you are Ben Roethlisberger whoring it up in a bar, you get a slap on the wrist. If you are Tom Brady throwing deflated footballs, you get a slap on the wrist. If you are Peyton Manning hiding behind your wife’s skirt as she orders human growth hormone and steroids, you get a slap on the wrist. But if you are Adrian Peterson and you discipline your child a little too severely, you get a year suspension. If you are Pac-Man Jones and someone else shoots someone in a bar while you are there, you get a year suspension. If you are Pac-Man Jones and you rain money in a bar, the media has a cow.

Critical race theory is nothing more than Corporate America’s attempt to deflect attention away from them while injuring you.

Critical race theory came out of Harvard University. In time Harvard University embraced it. They found a way to use it against the people they hate the most, you.

That’s why you should hate Harvard.

Harvard rapes the black man. Harvard rapes the white man.

There is no escaping it. All roads lead to Harvard.

By depicting you as racist, Harvard and Corporate America will place you on the defensive and enable reparations to take place.

These reparations will not benefit the black man or the black community.

The prime beneficiaries will be Corporate America who will stand by to administer the reparations program and take their cut of the reparations pie. Corporate America will fleece the black community of their newly gotten gain.

The rich will get richer, and the poor will get poorer.

Rage will increase in the black community egged on by Corporate America. Riots will become the norm.

White people will resent the reparations, and the race hustlers in the black community will say that the reparations are not enough.

Racial divisiveness will broaden after which Corporate America’s lackey politicians will again state that America is a racist nation thus completing the circle.

Sincerely,

Making Baseball Better

Since Rob Manfred is hell-bent on destroying baseball, it’s incumbent for us to save baseball.

That is the purpose of this article: How to save Major League Baseball.

First, let’s not do what everyone else is doing.

Currently, MLB, because it is losing its casual (as opposed to hardcore loyal) fanbase, has decided, under the leadership of Rob Manfred, to do what other people are doing, which is to adapt to our misguided culture.

Our current culture has no patience for thinking, intelligent strategy, or what appears to be a more slow playing game.

I could argue that nothing is more slow playing than football players crouching in a huddle, but that is not the purpose of this conversation.

I could also argue that no quarterback can throw a football as fast as a baseball player throwing a hardball, but no one will care.

And I’d love to wager that there are more exciting plays in baseball than in football, but nobody will listen.

The perception exists that baseball is a slow, unexciting sport.

People have been programmed to repeat like Pavlov’s dog that baseball is boring.

In response to that, the misguided leaders of baseball are trying to speed up the game, to give it more zip.

One of the proposed ways to give it more zip is to institute a homerun derby to decide the game rather than have the game go into extra innings.

Obviously I think this is a bad idea.

It is a bad idea because baseball will then be conforming to a misguided culture, a culture that will ultimately have no permanence.

Instead, baseball should stay true to its roots.

In fact, baseball should double down and send a strong message to society that there are some things worth keeping.

To make the game more relevant and interesting, I would institute some of the following changes.

I would ban interleague play. This was a change that was instituted in the modern era in order to give people in National League cities a chance to view teams like the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Likewise people who live in American League cities could see the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Well, if people want to see the Boston Red Sox, they can travel to Boston or another American League city.

Or they can watch an American League game on a black and white TV with grainy reception like I did as a kid when I held the antenna in order to pick up Yankees games in NY, or Orioles games in Baltimore.

By banning inter-league play, we can strengthen divisional rivalries.

Why should the Phillies play a few useless games with the Yankees and the Red Sox, when they can play a few more relevant games with the Mets and Braves?

We Phillies fans hate the Mets. And when I say hate, I mean deep-seated visceral hate. That’s why we love playing them.

Let’s make divisions means something.

Let’s make the real season mean something.

Since the fan base is shrinking, let’s rely less on television revenue. Let’s quit trying to expand the baseball market to everyone.

When you try to please everyone, you please no one.

It’s very much like a chef at a restaurant who puts out bland food because he’s afraid of offending someone.

Offending someone would mean, gasp, less market share.

I would rather be offended.

Let’s put more seasoning in baseball.

When we lessen our reliance on television, we also lessen our reliance on Corporate America.

Corporate America will therefore be less likely to extend its political influence upon the game.

All Star games won’t be switched out of cities because Corporate America and their lackey commissioners don’t like the politics of a local area.

There is no place for politics in sports.

None.

Ban athletes from making political statements.

Ban corporations from making political statements on a baseball field.

I have always viewed the baseball field as a church, a sacrosanct temple, free of political influence.

Not only should we eliminate politics from sports, we should eliminate all advertising on the field itself.

Get rid of those beer and car ads. If you want to put them on the concourse, fine; but, pleeeze, get rid of them on the playing field.

When we permit corporations to advertise on the playing field, we send a strong message to the players and to ourselves.

We are saying that our top priority is a dollar bill.

We are telling the world that we are for sale, that nothing is sacrosanct.

Eliminating advertising would go a long way to doing good for baseball and ourselves.

Along those lines, we can stop naming stadiums after corporations and corporate products.

We can rename many of these stadiums for people who have done honorable things – like we used to do.

Without advertising and television money, baseball players will necessarily make less money.

This will be good for the players.

Minus the fixation on money, and team-hopping for the bucks, players will be more likely to finish out their careers with the team they started with.

This will help generate greater interest amongst the fans.

Players will gain immeasurably in stature.

In earlier days, it was common for a player to spend a decade or more with one team.

Free agency and our culture of greed drove players to go to the highest bidder.

This was disastrous for fan interest and the career of the player.

Fans want to see that a player has loyalty to their team.

When that loyalty is restored, fan interest will increase.

Baseball will be a more fun game to watch.

Fans will be rooting for their guy, not a Hessian soldier.

Those would be the main changes I would make to baseball.

Obviously, the designated runner and the designated hitter would have to go.

Having that lousy-hitting pitcher come up during a rally made the game frustrating but more interesting.

Having that slow runner made you tear your hair out.

Having those extra innings made the game more interesting.

When your team goes 13 innings, you are sitting on the edge of your seat because you have invested so much time in the game.

When your team goes 19 innings, and they have to bring in the second baseman to pitch because they have run out of pitchers, as the Phillies did a few years ago when Wilson Valdez came in to take down the likes of Joey Votto and win the game, that is what makes the game interesting and memorable.

Let’s keep it that way.

Wilson Valdez takes down the middle of the Reds batting order?

That is a classic, baby.

The final change I would make is to eliminate the instant replay.

Curt Gowdy and Tony Kubek alluded to this years ago. They felt that instant replay took the human element out of the game.

I didn’t understand that as a young man, but I understand it now.

The umpire, his humanity, and his imperfections are as much a part of the game as are the imperfections of the players.

We should embrace that.

We are fallible human beings, not impregnable silicon chips.

Yes, minus instant replay, the game won’t be technically perfect, but it will be a hell of a lot more interesting.

And we won’t be wasting endless minutes waiting for an umpire to stare into a black box.

Let’s move forward by returning to the past.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley

King Louis, the Pagan Ape

You understand, of course, that we live in a fake democracy. It’s important that you understand that what you think doesn’t matter.

I state this not to disillusion you, but to enlighten you, to enable you to not spend your life in frustration as I did.

Our country is run by King Louis of France.

That’s right. King Louis never died. The Sun King’s brutal system of rule was merely modified.

It works like this.

Instead of one King Louis, we now have a group of people called Harvard that functions as King Louis.

Instead of the nobles who work under King Louis we now have groups of people called Ivy League (and new Ivy League) institutions that work with King Louis to rape the citizenry for their own benefit.

You are now a serf in their feudal system.

You live on their lands.

You are a renter. Yeah.

What King Louis says goes.

The other nobles will defer to King Louis’s rule lest King Louis kick their ass.

If King Louis wants to feed you, he will feed you.

If King Louis wants to starve you, he will starve you.

It will be his choice.

And that’s the way it works.

There is little nobility to humanity.

A pagan alpha-male gorilla, King Louis, rules our country.

We are no better than the apes.

The Senate and House, the Presidency, and the Judiciary, the traditional three branches of government, are puppets of King Louis.

They do King Louis’s bidding.

They work for King Louis, not you.

These institutions are now a sham.

The sooner you understand this, the better off you will be.

You won’t get angry because you will know the truth.

You will stop wasting time figuring out why things are the way they are.

You will cease wasting time watching Sean Hannity or Anderson Cooper complain about things.

You will be a realist.

Living in a fantasy world will only bring you pain.

Living in the real world frees you up.

This is the real world.

You live in a sham of a democracy. There is no republic.

Your vote does not count.

Let the truth set you free.

Sincerely,

Ruining Baseball

I told you before that Rob Manfred would ruin the game of baseball.

It’s only a question of how quickly he can ruin it.

Let’s see how long it takes.

The latest effort by MLB is to test market home run derby as a means to end games more rapidly.

Rob and his buddies apparently don’t like extra innings.

Most likely they did a financial analysis and discovered that extra innings weren’t maximizing profits efficiently.

So, to increase market share, to make the game supposedly more interesting, and of course to make more money, they will test market home run derby in the minor leagues to see how well it works.

I can guarantee that they will conclude that it does work.

They’ve already made up their mind.

Too bad.

Too bad for us.

It’s too bad for us because short term gain and long-term loss are often too compatible.

Home run derby will do to baseball what three-pointers and dunks have done for basketball – make the game boring and less team-oriented.

In an attempt to make basketball more appealing, the NBA ruined the game.

When you’ve seen one dunk, you’ve seen them all.

When you’ve seen one three-pointer you’ve seen them all.

Yawn.

Rob Manfred will do the same for baseball.

This is what happens when you put a master of the universe in charge of baseball.

Rob Manfred is, of course, a Harvard graduate.

As such he has been indoctrinated by our idiotic superstar culture to believe that he is superior to the rest of us, and so he will now look to fulfill the prophecy that society has set for him.

Forget about keeping your hand on the rudder and running a steady ship; that’s for chumps and losers.

Say, why does baseball need to increase market share anyway? And if baseball’s market share, is falling, so what?

Maybe a better approach would be to downsize the salaries, downsize the number of teams, downsize the size of the new stadiums, keep the game the same, and wait patiently for the day when society readjusts itself back to the great game that baseball is.

Isn’t that what life is, a giant circadian rhythm? Don’t we sleep at night? Don’t we all need a little downtime?

Isn’t life a giant roller coaster with ups and downs?

Don’t valleys go with mountains?

When you try to change your game to fit the mass market, which is fickle and disloyal, you lose your loyal base. Then you lose it all.

Home run derby will contribute to the demise of Major League Baseball – when it arrives – and it most likely will.

Never underestimate the power of a Harvard graduate. They have the Harvard machine behind them. It’s very difficult to beat these people.

Rob Manfred is just an officer of that machine.

Just as Harvard has made a wreck of the United States in every area of endeavor you can possibly imagine, Harvard will ruin baseball.

There is no stopping it.

Sincerely,

A Different Political Party

How about if you and I start a political party. But this will be a different type of political party.

We won’t have any formal organization which collects money.

No one will sit on a platform above us.

Nobody will be the leader.

Nobody will be in it for the money.

There will be no complex political platform.

No awards will be given out.

Nobody’s picture will be put on display.

Regular people will be listened to.

Flexibility will be built into the system so that intelligence can prevail.

What would that political party look like?

What can we agree upon?

Let’s start with some basic principles, and we will only select three of them so that we can remember them. After we develop these principles, we will give them a catchy name so that we can remember them.

Then we will give the party a name that makes sense.

A few days ago I was thinking of the name Lincoln Christian Party, or Christian Lincoln Party.

Of course, you wouldn’t have to be a formal Christian to join it; you would just have to recognize that Christ’s principles do have value.

You can be a Jew if you want. You can be a Muslim if you want. You can even pray to a tree stump.

You only need to accept that somebody, somewhere articulated these principles that we know today as Christianity.

You don’t even have to accept the resurrection.

This of course would go contrary to our elites who are working 24/7/52 to ensure that Christ is a speed bump in history.

With that stated, what would our guiding principles be? And we can only develop three.

What would be the three most important principles?

In developing these principles, we are striving to develop principles that will utterly defeat Corporate America, stop Corporate America in its tracks.

The first principal would undoubtedly have to be tolerance.

What’s needed badly in society today is tolerance that has been lost on both the right and the left.

We need to be able to tolerate each other’s differences and imperfections.

Tolerance invites respect.

Intolerance invites divisiveness, rage, and rioting.

Corporate America fosters all of these negative attributes.

Tolerance defeated the Roman empire; tolerance will defeat the American empire.

What would be the second attribute of our new party?

How about honesty in celebration of Honest Abe.

Honest Abe was smart enough to know that honesty is the best policy even if it hurts you in the short run.

Wouldn’t it be refreshing to have politicians who told people the truth?

Wouldn’t it be refreshing if politicians said: We are fighting this war for oil?

Wouldn’t it be refreshing if politicians said: We are in Southeast Asia for cheap labor?

Wouldn’t it be refreshing if politicians said: The civil rights movement exists not to help black people but to empower the political class?

Of course, they don’t say this. That’s the point.

When you bind yourself to honesty, you don’t engage in malfeasance because you do have to engage in honesty.

If we placed a premium on honesty and booted politicians out of the party when they were dishonest, then the government would become more honest.

But we don’t do that. We don’t do that because we fool ourselves that it’s okay to lie for short term gain.

It’s not.

What would be the third pillar of our party?

Transparency.

No secret meetings.

No need to know basis.

If we need to hide things, we probably shouldn’t be engaged in that activity in the first place.

Lack of transparency is what promotes the cloak of corruption.

When transparency exists, when the light can shine through, the cockroaches scurry for the floorboards.

Transparency is not an event which comes later after events have happened; transparency is built into the system in order to prevent corruption.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

So there you have it.

Tolerance, honesty, transparency.

Those are three pretty good principles to begin with.

If we can’t make things better with those three principles, if we can’t get our act together with those three attributes, then what’s the point of cluttering up our message with other principles.

Tolerance, honesty, transparency.

THT.

Now imagine if we had a government that practiced those principles.

If you want we could make it TTT.

Tolerance, truth, transparency.

If our politicians don’t practice it, we boot them out of the party. We refuse to vote for them no matter what their political position is.

Process is everything.

If the process is bad, the results will be bad.

It’s better to have a politician who abides by the correct process even if he differs from you politically than it is to have a politician who advocates your position but behaves in a manner that violates tolerance, truth, transparency.

Process is everything.

Sincerely,

Archer Crosley
