Obama Wins Again





America has a nearly stratospheric unemployment rate. Home foreclosures are booming. The surviving businesses must be preparing for a long slog since the banking system has been transformed in a manner that will penalize banks for activities that encourage business formation and growth. Yet there is no homelessness. Barack Obama that magical master of politics has brought about the impossible. He has brought about all the conditions necessary to produce massive homelessness without producing any homelessness. Miraculous! He can do the impossible. What a guy!
Maybe he really is capable of drastically increasing the number of people covered by health insurance, improving care and coverage plus doing all this at a lower cost than the old, too expensive way that gave Americans worse health care than they deserve. The man can do the impossible. So let’s set him loose on more of our problems. The least I could do for our great Obama is to ask the Senate to quit blocking his solutions and stop asking dumb questions.
Have to go slow with this. As I prepare to write letters to Senators I went to the HUD website to gather stats on our unbelievable conquest of homelessness. The link to Facts is broken. Well, sure, I just so badly wanted to believe that I started believing before checking the facts. There do not seem to be any facts. A lack of reporting from the MSM about the problem makes it more difficult for me to make a major change in my world view.
I am left with my old world view. If George Bush were still president the government would make the data available. If Bush were still president the MSM would be full of stories about homeless families and homeless children. The MSM wants to believe so badly that they won’t look at anything that doesn’t support their beliefs. I would have no clue what is going on in the world if it were not for the internet and Fox News. I guess that’s why Obama and his MSM attack Fox and the internet. Fox is the Luke Skywalker to the MSNBC and CNN and Katie Couric and George Stephanopoulos’ Darth Vader.
Obama looks like he won again because he plays the refs and cheats a little.

I was crazy about Kiri Te Kanawa while I was in my twenties and thirties. She is not the greatest singer ever. But her lovely voice is free of the screeching that many sopranos cannot escape. I was disappointed with her recordings of popular songs. They lacked the life that had made the songs so popular.

"There is only one emotion. If used in one way it is hate; in the other it is love. There is no third."


********************This is a quote from The Ten Commandments by Emmet Fox.************

***********************************************************
***********************************************************
Do not think that every thought you think will be demonstrated. Of course, it will not. Neither will very much happen for your good if you say perfunctorily, "God is all." Fortunately, when you say negative things or when you think negative things, it does not matter particularly, so long as you do not feel them. It is every thought you feel that counts.
There are some people who sometimes indulge in what is called a temper. You know what temper is – a storm of feeling. So you see how dangerous this is. When you are very angry, or very frightened, or filled with self-pity, you are filled with negative feelings, and that is the thing that is demonstrated. So watch your feelings. Miriam has to be controlled.
You can learn Truth very quickly. The father side, but the feeling is the difficult thing. Train yourself to put your feeling only into the thoughts that you want to demonstrate. Keep it out of those that you do not want to demonstrate.
Suppose you are going to be angry with someone. That is intense feeling. Now the feeling of anger is destructive, and it may not, and usually does not, hurt the object of its anger, it is going to hurt you. If you say, “This person may have behaved badly, acted meanly, deceived me, defrauded me or somebody else, but I am not going to get angry. I regret wjat happened, etc., etc.,” the feeling is there just the same. Do not try to repress it in this way, but switch it into something which is positive. Say, “This is too bad about this person, but thank God it was not I who did this thing. I can thank God he robbed me; not that I robbed him. Now he needs help. He is a human being, a child of God, the same as I am. Had I been in his shoes I might have done the same thing or even worse. So I am going to save him instead of hating him. I will be angry in a moment if I am not careful so I am going to switch this into love.” There is only one emotion. If used in one way it is hate; in the other it is love. There is no third. So you see the Christ in him. By doing that you have helped yourself and you will have changed him permanently.
. . . Act the part, get the thought right, fill it with feeling, and the demonstration will surely come.

Is There Such An Animal As A Conservative Novel?




The site Hey Miller is in the process of compiling a list of conservative novels. The comments would be of interest to book lovers. I am going to reproduce my comment here in hopes of spurring some discussion.

"I am intrigued by the category being considered at all. Why do we read novels? To experience beauty? To learn more about the human condition? For entertainment and to pass the time? I think that it tends to be a mixture of all of these. If I am reading mainly for entertainment, sure, I don't want a bunch of leftie foolishness invading my free time. But some of those lefties write very well and can be entertaining, e. g., Norman Mailer can deliver on occasion and Ken Kesey can be good. And I am secure enough in my world view that I think Sholokhov is not going to turn me into a commie.
"If I am reading to experience beauty I don't think conservative values are in jeopardy. Since truth is an element of beauty conservatism will tend to win out. Or the mind automatically makes adjustments to neutralize the lies. My favorite example would be James Joyce. He was an atheist and a socialist but still a great artist who wrote beautiful and entertaining books. His characters are interesting and and frighteningly real. And he does us the favor of not pushing his politics on us (though I think that there tends to be a bleakness, emptiness and depression near the core of his works that has been brought on by his atheism). And Joyce's work reinforces conservative values because it is so self-aware of its place in the Western tradition that the reading of his works forces the reader to think about and investigate further so many ideas and books that most nonconservatives ignore or attempt to sabotage.
"But if we are looking for overtly conservative novels I think The Devils by Dostoevsky has to be near the top of the list. It is an all out attack on socialism and progressivism. It shows that these ideologies are all merely fronts for atheism and displays where they inevitably lead.
"I'm surprised no one mentioned The Screwtape letters or Orwell's 1984.
"Waugh is always worth reading. The works of Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn are beautiful and an entertaining journey into another world.
"Heinlein's Starship Troopers and The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress bring up issues that conservatives will always think and write about. But if you look at Heinlein's whole body of work the over all judgement would have to fall in the area of weidorama.
"I don't imagine that Faulkner was self-consciously a conservative. But many of his novels delve deeply into the issue of race in America that we have not begun to see the end of. And he looks at the questions from many perspectives and never falls into the useless left wing class consciousness formulas."

***AN APPRECIATION OF MAD MEN*****
**********************************
I was thinking that many of the characters in Mad Men are difficult to identify with. And this lead me to many other thoughts about the series. Pete Campbell is a good example. He is just too whiney to be very sympathetic. I feel sorry for his wife. She will spend her life assisting him in self-pity and constructing rationalizations; unless she catches him in too many rapacious adventures with other women. He’s sneaky and predatory. When his neighbor’s German au pair is afraid of being sent home because she has spilled wine on an expensive dress, he feels the obvious thing is for her to blame it on the kids. Her refusal to betray her charges, no doubt, causes him to think it will be easy to get away with forcing himself on her. All this and his father’s genteel and hidden poverty make him a perfect symbol of New York’s Dutch past. He often serves as an excellent plot complication. But his blubbering immaturity tries my patience.
Roger Sterling is easier to bear than Pete. He keeps the alcohol flowing and makes sure there is a parade of sexy women marching and crawling through the show. He’s basically a charming, drunken libertine. He is almost all id. He has some understanding of discipline and limits but he doesn’t apply them to himself. He uses them to keep his employees in line and producing. He adds a lot of entertainment value to the show. But I wouldn’t want anyone I care about to be too much like him Especially since he too often crosses the line from entertainment to cautionary tale. Like when he has a heart attack at an early age, is clueless about how to raise his daughter or cannot see where marriage to a young foolish girl will lead. If you look at Roger’s story divorced from the other subplots he is like a character from Shakespeare. He appears vaguely large and heroic until you look closer. And the relationship between his actions and their consequences is organic and inescapable. That is a lot of why I won’t stop watching the show: there is that ugly and beautiful stamp of reality on all of its major actions and turning points.
Salvatore Romano sadly is a prisoner of his times. He’s a dutiful son from a Catholic background so he feels properly guilty about his homosexual urges. And he has followed the proscribed path of marriage. I love Sal and enjoy watching his story but his central conflict is beyond my ken. I had a close friend slightly younger than Sal who was gay. (He was among the last to die of AIDS before current treatment modalities were fully developed.) My friend, Bill, told me many stories of unbridgeable difficulties he dealt with daily in a world that saw no need to make concessions to every current in society. I could feel some empathy with Bill’s struggles. But, because of the sexual component, I am not capable of anything approaching elemental and complete identification. And I think that without identifying at a basic level, Sal’s story will remain mainly sad and frustrating; though there is the fun of catching all of the incongruities that his contemporaries miss. And I would like to see more characters on TV who quote Balzac.
In the fourth episode of the third season Sal’s wife realizes the truth. She tries to seduce her husband with a flimsy new nightgown. When that gets her nothing she virtually begs for sex. But he is not going to give in. He plainly feels sympathy for her frustration. Then he quickly becomes wholly caught up in imitating Ann Margaret as he explains to her the commercial shoot he’s about to direct. As Sal prances and dances the opening number from ‘Bye, Bye Birdie’ her face reflects a mixture of surprise and recognition that grows to a silent crescendo. She has been exactly here many times before and yet is still surprised. He climbs into the bed and hugs her while we see the wheels moving in her head as she surveys the wreckage of her world.
Don Draper is as flawed as he is gifted. He is interesting because of his self-assurance, charm and keen insight into human motivation. I enjoy watching him go right to the heart of an ad. Not wanting to think about mice in a hotel ad is blindingly obvious; but I never would have thought of it. Don has little self-control when it comes to women, often having at least two in his life at a time. In this area he is almost Kennedyesque. Could it be he didn’t have enough nurturing as a child?
The strange status of Don’s true identity reverberates with meaning. He was at an outpost in the Korean War. There was only one other man there, an engineer who was the officer in charge. When the officer was killed Don ended up assuming his identity and tried to leave behind his own name and history as Dick Whitman. It is appropriate that an ad man should be so comfortable with so large a lie. It reminds me of the part of the weekly animated intro where the man in a suit falls past the windows of the skyscrapers towards the concrete: he works without a net. The ease with which Don abandons the fight against communism and then dedicates his life to accelerating the consumerism of America makes Don almost too typical of his generation.
He carries around a huge secret with him but it does not haunt him or appear to cause him any emotional discomfort. Don believes he can just will away his childhood, the events that made him who he is, with no consequences or complications. “. . . move on. This never happened. It will shock you how much this never happened,” is his advise to Peggy on how to deal with having her child taken away. Don doesn’t see any connection between his lie and the lack of intimacy in his marriage. His father-in-law says, “Who knows what he does, why he does it. I know more about the kid who fixes my car. . . He has no people. You can’t trust a person like that.” His wife cannot experience safety or security with a disloyal man working without a net.
The wider effect of Don’s lie is not as near as devastating as the effects on the larger world that started Oedipus on the chain of events that lead him to fuller self knowledge. A comparison between the two is interesting. Like Don Draper Oedipus did not begin the search willingly. Oedipus was the king of Thebes whose citizens were afflicted with a plague. He was told that the cause of the plague was the fact the killer of the previous king had never been not been brought to justice. This leads Oedipus to begin an investigation into the murder that reveals that the king who was killed was his father. Even more shocking is the revelation that Oedipus was the murderer and he had for years been married to his own mother. Thus, as Woody Allen says, was born the whole industry called psychology.
The beginnings of the truth about Don Draper being brought to light are much more pedestrian. We see his wife doing her laundry and then hear the key to his drawer of secrets clanging around the inside of the washing machine: a petty annoyance that leads to a drawer full of lies. But one also needs to take into account the chain of events that created in Betty Draper an overwhelming willingness to invade her husband’s privacy. She had a skewed relationship with her father that made it inevitable that she marry someone like Don. And the two of them together were doomed to end up at such a pass. Jean Cocteau wrote a play about Oedipus that he titled ‘The Infernal Machine.’ Cocteau maintained that once all the major plot and character elements were set in place and begun running, that, in a machine-like manner, only Sophocles’ ending could rationally come about. This applies well to Betty. She had a father that made her his favorite and he treated her as a beautiful little doll. With that background she was destined to marry a handsome, self-assured master of manipulative lies who was dazzled by her beauty and would do whatever it took to win her. They would both think they were in love. He would value her highly as long as she didn’t complicate life for him. But he, since he was on an impossible quest to have the relationship with a mother that was never there, would not deny himself any woman he wanted. He would never give her enough attention or a real sense of security or intimacy. And she would not understand his behavior and would therefore feel justified in unlocking his drawer of secrets: she truly thinks it might help her figure out her husband and her marriage. But, like Oedipus, if she had just understood the exact nature of her relationship with her father she would never have needed to open the drawer; given that much self knowledge she probably would have never have married Don.
There was no indication that Oedipus had any great desire to know more about himself. He was initially motivated to look closer in order to save Thebes from the plague. His investigation was then sustained and intensified by ego: he kept accusing others as well as frequently repeating the severe punishments he planned for the guilty party, all thickly laced with overblown self-righteousness. Oedipus’ self-satisfied sanctimoniousness is so disproportionate that his later fall gives an emotional balance to the play. A strong case could be made that Don Draper had a subconscious desire for his secret to be revealed. He kept the incriminating papers and photographs in the desk of his home study and then was not careful enough with the key to the drawer. Maybe he wanted to be divorced from Betty but could not initiate it himself.
Don undergoes no change when he reveals his secret to Betty. His attitude remains the same for a couple of episodes. We see no difference of note before the season finale. But in that final episode he begins to show a changed attitude. His circumstances have altered. For the first time other people can deny him what he wants. He cannot open up shop on his own and he knows it. For the first time he sees that he has to work with others in order to get what he wants. If he is going to work on his own terms he needs the active cooperation of many other people. And those people now have Don where they want him: he has to convince them that he realizes how much he needs them before they will join in with him. All along Don has been insulting and dismissive towards account executives. And in the final episode he convinces a couple of account executives that he now understands that what they do is essential to the business. He also must convince Peggy that his attitude toward her has changed and that he truly values her. Much of what he said to Peggy was what he would have had to say to Betty to keep his marriage together. That he does not say these things to his wife shows that the marriage is over for him.
In part two I plan to write about the major female characters, Betty, Joan and Peggy. I also plan an appreciation of The Wheel. And I want to write about how Mad Men compares to some of the great examples of episodic television, i. e., The Sopranos, Rome, Deadwood and The Wire.
I have had some help writing this. My brother. Mike, gave me feedback that kept me from some large mistakes and greatly improved the final product. Pundette also gave me valuable input that improved the final form. I thank both of them. I alone am responsible for the short comings that remain.

Head of Homeland Security Worries Too Much About Feelings




Apparently Napolitano at DHS has some strange priorities as shown by this Google news post:
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates — The U.S. Homeland Security secretary says she is working to prevent a possible wave of anti-Muslim sentiment after the shootings at Fort Hood in Texas.
"Janet Napolitano says her agency is working with groups across the United States to try to deflect any backlash against American Muslims following Thursday's rampage by Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, a Muslim who reportedly expressed growing dismay over the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan."

Janet Napolitano apparently doesn't know what her job is. She feels she should make sure my feelings get her stamp of approval. If her department is OK with army majors trying to contact al Qaeda Americans just might need to be more vigilant around Muslims. If DHS has other priorities than protecting me then I guess a lot more of the responsibility falls on me. Maybe a reporter from Fox could ask Napolitano if she has any concern for our safety. The man made and FBI enabled disaster at Ft. Hood has got to have more people than me wondering if Napolitano is up to this job.

Family Values Win Again

Pam Geller of Atlas Shrugs


Stop the ACLU has been running interviews with some major conservative bloggers. The best I've seen is today's with Pam from Atlas Shrugs. The whole thing deserves to be read but I am reproducing here three of the Q & As that especially interested me.

How has it changed for the worse?
Little Green balls is the easy and obvious answer. That blog was a touchstone for so many of us. When he tried to destroy my reputation in November 2007 for not bending to his will and denouncing members of the trans-atlantic counter jihad movement, I knew it might be blog suicide. He was wrong, but he was king. My daily visitors went from 10,000 a day to 2,000. I was never linked by any of the big blogs ever again – Malkin, Instapundit, et al. Even when I broke big stories, like Obama’s campaign contributions from a Hamas refugee camp in Gaza.
But it was a valuable lesson. I came back without being part of the link chain or the blog clique. I built it back one reader by one reader. It’s better, of course. That way you are not slave to the link master.
Turning to the overall picture of the right blogosphere…. what has changed for the worse is the abandonment of the issue of Islamic supremacism by the big blogs — the most dangerous threat facing the West, more dangerous than Nazism, more insidious than communism and they won’t touch it. Of course Jihad Watch covers it comprehensively, but that’s what Spencer does. Islamic jihad is not a tangential issue. It is the defining conflict of our time.
What changes for the better and worse do you see in the near future for blogs?
Nothing will change for the left, they are smear machines. It’s what they do. It’s the currency they traffic in.
For the right blogs, the future’s so bright, I gotta wear shades. More and more people are flocking to the net in pursuit of the real news. They see that the mainstream media has become a corrupt activist media for the left. Americans feel betrayed by a media that did not vet Obama. They saw grammy and pop labeled racists and nazis because they didn’t want socialized medicine. People are waking up. It’s a very good time for us.
Right vs. Left, who is faring better in the blogosphere and why?
Moneywise, the left. They are well funded by Soros, moveon, media matters. But they are void of credibility, short on accuracy, big on invective. They traffic in smear. Very boring.
The objective of left wing blogs is to smear and destroy. Those blogs have become very sophisticated search and destroy machines. Alinsky ridicule is the MBO.
The right has created a new news media outlet. Alternative media is becoming as influential as talk radio. The objective of right wing blogs is to investigate and report the news the media won’t touch. And the right has done such a good job because it’s all low hanging fruit; no one else is doing it. ACORN, Rifqa Bary, Obamacare, the stimulus, the socialists and radicals in the White House ………. exposed by the blood, sweat and tears of right blogs.

ON TIME

by: John Milton (1608-1674)

FLY envious Time, till thou run out thy race,
Call on the lazy leaden-stepping hours,
Whose speed is but the heavy Plummets pace;
And glut thy self with what thy womb devours,
Which is no more then what is false and vain,
And meerly mortal dross;
So little is our loss,
So little is thy gain.
For when as each thing bad thou hast entomb'd,
And last of all, thy greedy self consum'd,
Then long Eternity shall greet our bliss
With an individual kiss;
And Joy shall overtake us as a flood,
When every thing that is sincerely good
And perfectly divine,
With Truth, and Peace, and Love shall ever shine
About the supreme Throne
Of him, t'whose happy-making sight alone,
When once our heav'nly-guided soul shall clime,
Then all this Earthy grosnes quit,
Attir'd with Stars, we shall for ever sit,
Triumphing over Death, and Chance, and thee O Time.
