Amnesty Tyranny Is Fast Approaching

Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez said President Barack Obama will take "aggressive executive action" on immigration, which Perez said will bring about more "shared prosperity" Breitbart reports.  Additionally, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun (also reported by Breitbart).  The Hill also reports there is considerable angst over President Obama's post-election plans on immigration which is growing amid revelations that the Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) has issued a procurement request for as many as 34 million work permits and green cards following Obama's impending illegal executive action.....

Obama conveniently won't do anything until after November 4.  Remember, Obama illegally delayed major portions of the ObamaCare law until after the November 4 elections.   You see his ideas are so great and wonderful for America that he has to delay them to protect his liberal Democrat cronies in Congress.  'You know what' will hit the fan during the lame duck session of Congress.  You can also count on the Republicans to do absolutely nothing about it.

How will there be "shared prosperity" when millions upon millions of non-assimilated people are unilaterally and illegally granted amnesty by Obama?  Many of these people are illiterate in English and illiterate in their own native language.  Many of these people possess no job skills.  Many of these people will simply begin collecting various forms of welfare and hand-outs (food stamps, ObamaCare, Medicaid, etc.) further burdening America.  So, I believe the "shared prosperity" Secretary Perez is talking about is sharing our hard earned tax dollars with millions upon millions of people that have come across our southern border illegally.  

You see, this is just the fundamental change of America that Obama desires.  It is time for Americans to "share the wealth" with the rest of the world and be a "good neighbor" to our "friends" down south.  It is time for Americans to stop being greedy and open up your hearts and minds (and wallets) to those that are less fortunate.  Obama has decreed open borders and will soon decree amnesty upon millions of people that took advantage of the open borders.  These people have no intent to join the American work force...they will join the gravy train of welfare and hand-outs.  They will share in America's prosperity by collecting government checks paid by you and I...how disgraceful!

This may very well be the straw that breaks the camel's back....

The Ignored Plague Will Remain...

Do you think your vote counts?  Are you one of the naive people who really think that going to the voting booth will effectuate the change you desire personally?  Well, you are completely wrong...actually you are much more naive than I thought.  You are like a silly teenager...

I've been hearing how the Republicans will win big on November 4.  The Republican Party is so happy that they will secure the House again and win over the Senate from the decrepit and senile Harry Reid.  They are already celebrating their victory of having John Boehner and Mitch McConnell as their Congressional leaders to thwart Barack Hussein Obama.

But having Boehner and McConnell in charge will change absolutely nothing in the federal government!  They have already announced they will do nothing to repeal ObamaCare and they have already announced plans to pass a massive omnibus spending bill.  They will allow Obama to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens by executive tyranny and will do nothing to protect America's southern border.  In fact, they have already surrendered completely to the will of Obama, despite their looming victory.  

Have you noticed the Republicans are only winning because the Democrats are losers?  It is only a default win because it is only a vote against Obama (versus a vote for Republicans). You have two choices (pick one):  
  1. Big Statist/Marxist Politician (denoted with D) or 
  2. Small Statist/Marxist Politician (denoted with R)    
These Republicans stand for absolutely nothing at all.  They have no stance, no platform, no beliefs, no ideology, and no leadership.  But since they are the "opposing" party to Obama (choice #2), they win only by default.  I maintain, though, there is really no real difference between Democrats and Republicans...so regardless, it doesn't matter who you vote for or against....in the end, they are really all the same...

Once Boehner and McConnell take charge, the massive 4th branch of the federal government will continue to churn like an insatiable porn star.  The EPA will continue on as if nothing changed in the government.  The IRS will continue on as if nothing changed. The numerous and massive bureaucracies and regulatory agencies will be unaffected and will continue to grow and eat America's pie at alarming rates.  The 4th branch of the federal government has been institutionalized into America's governmental system and is outside of democracy and change...  

Once Boehner and McConnell take charge, the ubiquitous judicial branch of the federal government will continue to erode the Constitution and individual rights.  The judicial branch made up of Marxist ideologues in the federal courts and the Supreme Court will deem and declare at will and will be unaffected by the change in leadership.  The judiciary also remains outside of democracy and change....

Thus, the ignored plague of massive, iron-fisted, federal government will remain unchanged with a Republican win on November 4, 2014.  America is in a post-constitutional era where democracy is nullified and the federal government will never cease growing in size or dimension.  

Your silly vote doesn't matter, the government exists whether you want it or not...the Statist made sure of that over the past 100 years...

Massachusetts Next Statist Governor

I was flipping the channel last night and came across the Charlie Baker/Martha Coakley debate on C-Span.  It didn't take me long to quickly change the channel out of bad air and nausea caused by listening to another radical left ideologue running for high office in Massachusetts.  Of course, the people of this Commonwealth will vote her into office, which goes without saying.  

This is what made me turn the channel in absolute disgust of Martha Coakley:

When asked about illegal aliens being allowed to obtain MA driver's licenses, Martha summarily said "Yes" illegal aliens should be allowed to obtain MA driver's licenses.  Martha will support allowing illegal aliens (people here illegally) to obtain MA driver's licenses!

When asked about illegal aliens being allowed to obtain taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition at MA colleges and universities, Martha summarily said "Yes" illegal aliens should be allowed to get taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition at MA schools.  Martha will support allowing illegal aliens (people here illegally) to get taxpayer subsidized in-state tuition at MA colleges and universities!

I could not stomach any more of Martha's radical left blather.  She reminds me too much of Senator Warren (now I feel sick again).  How does MA accomplish breeding such radical left Socialists and Marxists in such a relatively small state?  

The politicians MA keeps voting into office are repulsive and repugnant.  I detest Martha Coakley and those that support her, like Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) and Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport).  With this cycle of contemptible politicians, there is absolutely no hope for our Commonwealth!!

Somerset's Anti-Capitalism Development Committee

Just a few comments about Somerset's useless and detrimental Economic Development Committee.....

This group, comprised of over a dozen citizens, has been meeting regularly over the past 10 months on a volunteer basis.  Despite their regular meetings and efforts, Somerset residents have seen absolutely no progress on economic development in Somerset.  In fact, during this time, Staples departed Somerset, a quarter of a million dollars in back taxes is owed by the Dump on the Taunton owner, and Brayton Point will shutter soon.  There is no economic development in Somerset....none....

What irks me (actually it pisses me off) to no end is the constant and unrelenting left wing, Socialistic, anti-capitalism climate change nonsense spoken by their Chairman.  The Chairman is clearly not a free market capitalist, the Chairman clearly does not support laissez-faire capitalism and the Chairman clearly does not support and defend individual private property rights in a free market economy.  The Chairman of Somerset's Economic Development Committee is actually a left wing ideologue that supports the iron fist of big government to crush big and small business alike.  He does not believe in free market capitalism (i.e. freedom) and he has a penchant for Socialism and Marxism.  How did Somerset end up with a Marxist to head up the Economic Development Committee?  Baffles the mind!!!

How dare I say the Chairman is a Socialist and a Marxist!  

Well, the truth and facts speak for themselves!  The Chairman has invited a Marxist climate change kook hack (i.e. a kook lawyer) from the Conservation Law Foundation's clean energy and climate change program to discuss the future dismal options for Somerset's soon-to-be-defunct power plants (as if she actually owned them).   Her bio states:  "Shanna Cleveland is a Staff Attorney working to advance climate protection through promoting effective legislation, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and initiatives aimed at reducing reliance on fossil fuels...  etc."  Her Twitter account is savethepenguins which says it all....

The lawyer and environmental activist our Marxist Chairman invited has played a key role in promoting pseudo-science advocacy, hype, and hysteria in New England.  This lawyer the Socialist Chairman is bringing in has fought, tooth and nail, both Brayton Point and Montaup with costly litigation forcing them to close up their plants (apparently to save those penguins).  Now she swoops into Somerset to lecture us about her Marxist and Socialist principles at the invite of her Marxist friends in Somerset!  Need I remind you of this past Toxics Action story?  Here are some other stories:

October 19, 2014 Herald News Story
August 7, 2014 The Spectator Story
August 14, 2014 Herald News Story
April 13, 2014 Herald News Story

The message is clear to me.  This so-called Economic Development Committee is an oxymoron.  It is really the anti-business, anti-capitalism, anti-development, anti-economy committee hell bent on crushing Somerset residents to death!  The Chairman of our anti-business development committee is bringing in a true anti-business, anti-capitalist Socialist to lecture Somerset residents on pseudo-science and what to do with property she doesn't own.  Thanks, but no thanks...

With these people in charge of economic development for Somerset, we may as well go into state receivership now and save ourselves the trouble of waiting for complete collapse...

I also have a reading assignment for the Chairman and this so-called Somerset Economic Development Committee:  Please read Ayn Rand's Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal and Milton Friedman's Free To Choose:  A Personal Statement so you can understand how free-market capitalism actually works in the real world...

The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge

I came across this wonderful little novella or novel (tough to describe it) called "The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge" by Rainer Maria Rilke.  It is his only novel (published in 1910) and it is described as an autobiographical novel.  There is really no rhyme, reason, or order to the novel other than deep existential concerns with imminent death and individualism and the self.  Malte roams around seeing the death and decay in every person he sees.  He sees single identity expunged in favor of the herd masses.  Conformity is the highest goal in the modern age.  The herd mass (democracy, voters) replaces the individual.  The herd is virtuous while the individual is mocked and trampled upon.  It is more than that as well.  It is perhaps infinitely more than that...

I was particularly struck by the following excerpt which sheds light on the falsity or falseness of people toward one-another and one's self.  To put on airs about one's self in public and in private.  To be false or untrue to your true being, your true singleness as a sovereign individual...that individual.  The travesty is not only the falseness of you as it is perceived by everyone else, but the falseness of you as perceived by you.  You have become the falsity and shed your true self....  
I never realized how many faces there are. There are lots of people but still more faces, for everyone has several. There are people who wear a face for years, of course it wears out, gets dirty, cracks in the folds, stretches like a glove one has worn on a journey. Those are thrifty, simple people: they don’t change it, they don’t even have it cleaned. It’s good enough, they maintain, and who can convince them otherwise? The question does arise, since they have several faces, what do they do with the others? They keep them in reserve. Their children will get to wear them. But it also happens that their dogs wear them when they go out. And why not? Face is face. Other people put on their faces with uncanny rapidity, one after the other, and wear them all out. At first it seems to them as if they would have them forever, but they are barely forty and this one is already the last. That of course has its tragic side. They are not used to taking care of faces, they run through their last one in a week, there are holes in it, in many places it is as thin as paper, and then slowly what’s underneath emerges, the not-face, and they walk around with that.
How about the inner self, the inner individual, the inner me (that terribly ugly shell of a house that is me)?  It only has one wall remaining, you can see right into it (one can see right through it so to speak), you can see what was there in the inner side of this person.  Rilke describes this house (one's self) as repulsive, dirty, dusty, barely standing, moldy, smelly and decrepit (the good spots were covered by mirrors and pictures and were hidden all those years you existed). Only one wall remained standing in this house, and when Malte recognized it, he ran away from it (fear and loathing that it was him; Malte was looking at himself inwardly). I cannot possibly unravel the deepness of this passage, so I won't even attempt it:
Will people believe that such houses exist? No, they will say I’m making it up. This time it is true, nothing left out, of course nothing added, either. Where would I have got it from? One knows that I am poor. One knows it. Houses? But, to be precise, they were houses that were no longer there. Houses that had been torn down from top to bottom. What was there were the other houses that had stood beside them, high neighboring houses. They were obviously in danger of collapsing since everything next door had been removed, for a whole scaffolding of long, tarred tree-masts had been rammed diagonally between the exposed walls and the area of debris on the ground. I don’t know whether I have already said that these are the walls I mean. But not the outer wall of the houses still standing (as one would have had to assume), but the interior wall of the former houses. One saw its inner side. One saw on the various floors the walls of rooms to which the wallpaper still clung, here and there the stump of a floor or ceiling. Beside the walls of the rooms there was along the entire wall a dirty white space, through which crawled in indescribably repulsive, worm-soft, so to speak digesting movements the open, rust-spotted gutter of lavatory pipes. Of the paths taken by illuminating gas gray, dusty spaces remained at the edge of the ceilings, and here and there they bent around quite unexpectedly on the floor and ran into the colored wall and into a hole that was black and had been ruthlessly punched out. But the most unforgettable things were the walls themselves. The tenacious life of these rooms had not let itself be stamped out. It was still there, it hung on the remaining nails, it stood on the hand’s breadth of floor that was left, it had shriveled into the stubs of the corners, where there was still a little bit of interior space. One could see it in the paint that had slowly, year after year, transformed this space: blue into moldy green, green into gray, and yellow into an old, stale white that was putrefying. But it was also in the fresher places that had been preserved behind mirrors, pictures, and cupboards, for it had drawn and redrawn their outlines and had also, along with spiders and dust, been in these hidden places that now lay exposed. It was in every scraped-off strip, it was in the damp bubbles at the bottom edge of the wallpaper, it fluttered in the hanging shreds and sweated from the nasty spots that had formed long ago. And from these walls that had been blue, green, and yellow, framed by the trusses of the destroyed inner walls, the air of these lives stood out, the tenacious, sluggish, moldy air that no wind had yet dispersed. There remained the noons and the illnesses and the exhalations of the smoke of years, and the sweat that breaks out in the armpits and makes clothes heavy, and the bad breath of mouths and the oily smell of yeasty feet. In it remained the sharpness of urine and the burning of soot and gray potato odor and the heavy, smooth stink of rancid fat. The sweet, long smell of neglected infants was in it, and the odor of fear from children going off to school, and the sultriness from the beds of pubescent boys. And much had mingled with all this that had risen from below, from the abyss of the narrow, transpirating street, and other smells that had trickled down from above with the rain, which over cities is not clean. And many had been brought by the weak, tame house-winds that always stay in the same street, and there were many other odors whose origin one did not know. I said, didn’t I, that all the walls had been pulled down except for the last? Now this is the wall I have been speaking about all this time. One will say that I stood before it for a long while; but I will take an oath on it that as soon as I recognized the wall I began to run. For that is the terrible thing, that I recognized it. I recognize all these things here, and that is why it enters me so readily: it is at home in me.

I will continue to read this novel over and over again....

Karl Rove: A Deceptive Boob

Remember when, not too long ago, there were no weapons of mass destruction found in Iraq?  Remember how the left and the mainstream media were all over Bush and Cheney about no WMDs found in Iraq and the Iraqi war was all for nothing?  Remember all of the marching in the streets? Ask anyone and they would say the Iraqi war was all for nothing since no WMDs were found!  Bush lied and troops died was the slogan chanted!  People were marching in the streets about this!  It was all over the news nearly 10 years ago and it virtually ruined the Bush presidency (which wasn't hard to do).

Now it is coming out that there were actual WMDs and it was Fox News' Karl Rove that covered up the whole story!  I beg you to read this The Daily Beast story and this NY Times story about how 'the architect' Karl Rove (Fox News poster boy fool) covered up the truth from the American people and our military personnnel!   This dope Karl Rove is the moron that is on Fox News nonstop, pushed by every single Fox News host as some political genius with a whiteboard.  Karl Rove is a liar, Karl Rove is a dishonest weasel, Karl Rove has impeached himself of all credibility!  If Fox News puts this guy on the air again, Fox News will impeach themselves of all credibility (not that they had any to begin with).

I would also like to call your attention to this AP story about Saddam Hussein's weapons grade uranium (a 2008 story).  There was a massive amount of WMDs in Iraq, including nuclear bomb making material, and it is all coming to light now after all these deceptive years!!!

The lies, the dishonesty, the deception, the deceit, the propaganda, and the duplicity of these politicians, this federal government, this Fox News company, this boob Karl Rove is totally breathtaking and stupefying!  I'm speechless!!!  Who can we believe???

The Ebola Political Lightning Rod

Barack Hussein Obama sickens me.  His naming an "Ebola Czar" as an extreme left-wing, political bureaucrat is the lowest of the low.  With this political appointment, Ebola will become instantly politicized.  Consider who Ron Klain is:  
  • Former chief of staff to the dumbest VP and dumbest Senator in history, the esteemed moron Joe Biden
  • Former chief of staff to the global warming idiot Al Gore
  • Headed up Al Gore's efforts during the Florida re-count to steal the presidency illegally
  • Supervisor of the stimulus fund allocations (i.e. the Socialist redistribution of wealth to the crony-capitalists)
  • He is a political hack bureaucrat with absolutely no medical training and he has never worked in the health care industry in any capacity
What am I missing?  This is the Ebola Czar?  This guy has no qualifications to be anything but a political hack for the Democrats.  It is yet another layer of unnecessary government in a government already inundated in useless layer upon layer.  Millions upon millions of dollars spent on the CDC, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services, etc. but that is not enough.  Another layer must be thrown on top for millions upon millions more spent.  

Ron Klain was appointed for one reason and one reason only:  to politicize Ebola in favor of Democrats ahead of the mid-term elections.  What does that mean specifically?  I have no idea, but watch how this unfolds over the next three weeks.  Watch how Ebola becomes politicized by the left.  Obama will never allow a crisis to go to waste politically.  Ebola will be utilized as a political lightning rod and the dumb herd voters will soon blame Republicans for Ebola entering the United States.  Voting Republican will soon be equated with voting for Ebola.  The masses will be manipulated...  

Farfetched?  We will soon see....

An End and a Beginning

A simple and logical if/then statement can be so deep and provocative.  Dostoevsky wrote: "If God does not exist, then everything is permitted."  The converse also follows: "If everything is permitted, then God does not exist."  If one truly follows the consequences of this if/then axiom, perhaps we'd be lead to a universal madness...or perhaps it would be both an end and a beginning...or perhaps you would simply say "I believe"..."I have faith" and think all is not permitted because of your faith in some otherworldly being.

One seemingly cannot offer any empirical proof of God. One can believe that such a being exists (as many people insist), but one cannot offer another any proof of this actual existence. There is no proof, there is no evidence. It is nowhere to be found on earth. One's belief is based solely upon their personal faith that God exists. This belief and this so called personal faith is simply in one's mind and one's consciousness with no outside proof or empirical evidence to justify the thought. One simply believes because one was inclined to believe.  One simply has faith because one was inclined to have faith. It is a personal statement of one's outlook upon existence, but when reduced to its base elements, it is personal faith alone and nothing else.

We have reached the point now where it is only one's personal faith in God that separates her from Dostoevsky's anarchy (i.e. everything is permitted).  Perhaps we have been at this point all along throughout our own lives.  It is dangerous point.  It is fragile.  It is unknown. One could sway either way.  We are on a tightrope across a great abyss and the unknown lurks below.  

With the personal faith, universal law permeates all things.  Without the personal faith, universal madness encompasses everything.  But is it the end or is it a beginning?  Is it really madness or just the unknown?  Perhaps these old morals from this dead God are no longer applicable to us. Perhaps we are in need of new morals, not passed down from some figment of our imagination, but based upon existence itself? New morals based upon personal existence and self and the will to life.  A true freedom in existence, so to speak.  

It is said animals do not believe in God and we humans are just "smart" animals.  Smart enough to invent Gods, but not smart enough to kill them off when we need to kill them off. This invented faith has controlled us long enough.  An advent is needed for a new moral structure, not based upon faith and belief in some god being, but based upon man's will to existence...what that new moral structure is would be personal to each person.  It would not be universal, but defined in each and every human internally and within their own conscious self.  I'm hesitant to even call it a structure, since it is not a structure at all.  It would be "relative" and, at times, it would appear to be "animalistic" and even "chaotic" because it would be personal and internal to oneself and non-universal.  As beauty and aesthetics are in the eye of the beholder, so are values and morals....You may object that it is too relative and subjective...too chaotic and base...too free.  Are we not free beings?  Are we not sovereign individuals?  Are we not in control of our own minds, our own bodies, and our own selves?  Why must we invent the oxymoron of limited freedom?

MA Republican Surrenders Senate

Does Mr. Derek Maksy want to defeat Senator Michael Rodrigues on November 4?  I'm not sure he does and I'm not sure he even knows how to defeat him. What has he done to take the reigns and take the offensive to summarily defeat Rodrigues?  I really don't know.  Has he done anything at all?  Anything?

In order to win as a Republican in Massachusetts, you need to strike hard and fast at your opponent.  You need to expose the Liberal Democrat as a fraud and hypocrite so everyone understands they are a fraud and a hypocrite.  You need to expose their voting record to the voting public to expose their hypocrisy and Socialism.  Otherwise, you may as well surrender and go home since you are wasting your time in this ultra-blue Commonwealth...

Below I listed out what Derek Maksy stands for (per the Herald News) as a candidate for the 1st Bristol and Plymouth Senate seat currently held by Rodrigues.  This is his "candidate statement" and apparently this is what he stands for and against in this election:

  • I will not put up with the total disregard of our citizens!
  • The tax increase from 5% to 6.25% “WAS WRONG”
  • Yes, I would buy alcohol in New Hampshire because they have not taxed it like Massachusetts!
  • No, I won’t give jobs to my closest supporters! They will have to earn it on their own merits!
  • No, I won’t take PAC money! It is just plain wrong!
  • I have also decided “not” to take any contributions from anyone, it only leads to favors!
  • Yes, I will work to help all of us equally as citizens!
  • Yes, I’m ok with casinos because it brings jobs. No, I don’t gamble!
  • No, I won’t put up with derelict agencies
  • Yes, I believe in transparency in state government
  • Yes, I would work together to a common goal of providing excellent service to Massachusetts citizens.
  • Yes, I would support stimulating business growth,
  • Yes, I would support agricultural programs
  • I would propose 61 C and allow elderly homeowner tax exemptions
  • I would support commuter rail to Fall River and New Bedford
  • No, I won’t support a tax on miles driven in Massachusetts.
  • “We have already paid for the roads”
  • I would support eliminating waste in State Gov’t
  • Renewable energy can be good but it needs to have a positive rate of return and not be on the backs of our citizens
  • Democrats, republican, or undeclared, we are all on the same team
  • Yes, I would be ok if neither of us running for the Senate seat gets elected, one less politician is always better!
What Mr. Maksy is admitting is he really doesn't stand for true conservative principles and that he really doesn't want to defeat Rodrigues on November 4.  I'm not even convinced he is a Republican or a conservative!!   This list is what I call a vanilla, milk toast list defining nothing about the candidate.  It says what everyone says on both sides of the aisle, that is to say nothing at all.  It is a surrender and a admission of "I've got nothing."  It is a waste of time and it is why Massachusetts continues to be inundated by the progressive left in politics.  This sort of statement is an embarrassment to the Republican party and it does nothing to contrast the differences between Rodrigues and Maksy (maybe there are none).

Sadly, Mr. Maksy has surrendered, admitted defeat, and has secured the re-election of Rodrigues to the State Senate.

Ebola Diversion and Decoy

I've posted this before and I still think it to be true.  I really think the mainstream media and the Obama Administration is using the Ebola virus story as a decoy and diversion to take the pressure off Obama's failed foreign and domestic policies ahead of the mid-term elections. 

Look at the headlines and the news...Ebola is the only topic of discussion with the main stream media.  Front and center is the Ebola virus and the nation's attention is diverted to Ebola.  This is all that is talked about and it is covered non-stop, 24 hours a day.  It is hyped up beyond the rational.  For instance, look at today's Drudge Report hype:


















Just like the Ferguson, MO story and the NFL story and the NBA story (ad infinitude), the main stream media floats from one thing to the next; bringing one story into focus, then out of focus, oscillating to and fro to manipulate the citizens of this country.  It is done to have power and control over us by defining the decoy story so we forget all about what is really important.  It is smoke and mirrors of deception and sleight of hand so you observe the decoy and miss the real event before your eyes.

I suspect after November 4, Ebola will be a non-story and the main stream media will be off and running with a different decoy and deception....

Hypersensitive Chace Street Utterances

I simply cannot believe a teacher at Chace Street School was placed on paid administrative leave for what seems to be absolutely benign comments.  The Herald News stated "the educator said something to the effect of wanting to kill someone because of lost emails in the system. The educator made the comments in front of three other school employees..."

Really?  Is this what we've become in Somerset?  Political correctness gone totally insane? One cannot express themselves with words without being condemned to administrative leave and a destroyed reputation?  Is this the nullification of freedom of speech and 1st Amendment protections in favor of hypersensitive political correctness?

Clearly what was said was said figuratively.  It wasn't to be taken literally or as truth or as intent to commit a crime.  It was a symbol of frustration with the email system.  The person that uttered the comment was simply expressing frustration and discontent with the email system.  Do these administrators and police really think the person said these comments with the intent to actually kill someone because of lost emails in the email system?  

The school district has become hypersensitive to words and figures of speech.  This town is excessively and abnormally sensitive to mere words uttered in frustration, words that do not harm any person, words that were meant as a symbol of discontent with the email system. 

Now, this person, who has been placed on administrative leave, has a damaged reputation in the eyes of the police, the school administration, and the Chace community of teachers and parents.  

It is a travesty of justice for this particular person and it is a shame.

Scare Tactics From The Left

Why must liberals and the radical left rely on scare tactics, resentment, and fear in all their policies and politics?  

We saw yesterday how union executives at SBRHS tried to scare you into supporting teacher's unions since the opposite would mean academic catastrophe of epic proportions.  We saw how the K-8 school administration sounded the fiscal catastrophe alarm if Somerset residents do not appropriate another $477,972 to the school district.  Scare tactics, fear, and resentment are the only politics the radical left uses....  

Now we have Rich Davey (MA transportation secretary) saying if voters vote YES on ballot question one (eliminating automatic gas tax indexing), MA roadways will suffer the dire consequences with potholes and disrepair and crumbling infrastructure.  You see, the masterminds of MA need this new tax for an extra two billion dollars in revenue.  Otherwise, the masterminds will make sure all your roads and bridges will fall to pieces!  

Stop the madness!!  Voting Yes on question one simply means not linking the gas tax to inflation and forcing the corrupt legislature to vote for any and all future gas tax increases! No tax should automatically increase.  That is absurd!  That is taxation without representation!  In MA, we already pay 26.5 cents for state sales tax and 18.4 cents for federal sales tax.  These politicians always lie about how they will spend tax revenue.  The last time the gas tax was raised in MA, the revenue was completely diverted from road repairs and into some other boondoggle. 

I might remind you Rep. Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) and Sen. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport) voted for the automatic gas tax increase based on the Consumer Price Index, yet they both do not pay for their own gas to commute back and forth to/from Beacon Hill. These two masterminds expense their gas bills to the Massachusetts taxpayers!  Hypocrites are they...raise your taxes then exempt themselves from the tax!

If you need more information about voting Yes on question one, visit www.tankthegastax.org 

Don't let the feeble masterminds, the hypocrite politicians, the corrupt bureaucrats, and the fraudulent unions scare you!  Don't let them use scare tactics, resentment, and fear to get you to vote a certain way!  Think for yourself!!!

Evolution of the Four Freedoms and Unions

At the outset, let me say I respect Ms. Neville Morgan Barry's opinion and her teaching abilities.  She is an asset to SBRHS, staff, administration, and students alike.  That being said, Ms. Barry is demonstrating in her opinion article her Statist tendencies and her, what seems to be, radical left opinions.  Certainly, she is entitled to those opinions and I certainly support her right to expose those opinions in the newspaper, but I vehemently disagree with her.

Clearly, Ms. Barry's article is all about her union support, especially teacher's unions.  This is evident when she, at the outset of the article, asks the question "Do we continue to devalue unions, revolt against education, despise our differences, and undermine our basic democratic rights....?"  Later in the article, she takes a cheap shot by stating "Nationally, Governor Walker from Wisconsin destroyed how unions negotiated."  She offers no details about this assertion.  Finally, she states "However, teachers have become victims of a society that demands academic excellence but does not provide the resources to complete this task. Our victimization occurs due to economic downfalls that we cannot control. Teachers then become the scapegoat for towns that see us as failing our students, failing our community, and in general failing society’s concept of the American Dream."  Ms. Barry claims that if America only followed Franklin D. Roosevelt's Four Freedoms (FDR's intent was not freedom, but of bigger and insatiable government), all would be right with the world...peace, love, and joy would be achieved!  Utopia!!

I should point out here that Ms. Barry is on the Executive Board of the Somerset Teacher's Association, so she is not only a union member, but a union executive in Somerset. Certainly, this is further evidence of her bias for unions and, more particularly, teacher's unions.  

Let's cut through the fog here.  Her thesis is that freedom equals unions, or stated more clearly, economic and political freedom equals collective bargaining.  Ms. Barry cannot have freedom as a teacher or as a sovereign person without the union of similar thinking people "backing her up" and "filling in the gaps" for her and her union-mates.  The union apparently grants Ms. Barry her freedoms, both economic freedom and political freedom, admitting she cannot bargain or negotiate on her own as a grown [and intelligent] adult.  She cannot "go it alone" against "the man" without the union behind her pointing their gun at the town.  She needs the herd and masses of the union to justify herself to her employer.  Justice will only happen for Ms. Barry by collective bargaining and union weaponry.  She admits defeat and worthlessness by submitting to the herd of teachers to hold hostage all town governments.  She is smart and a great teacher, yet she needs to stand shoulder to shoulder with mediocre and poor teachers, belittling herself to mediocrity and debasing herself to a lower level.  Why would she, of all people, do such a thing??  

At the very core, though, the 'herd bargaining' is all about Ms. Barry's self-serving bottom line.  I submit to you that Ms. Barry's article is all about her salary, her benefits, her work-life balance, her retirement benefits, her health care, her power, her control....it is all about her individually and not about education or academic excellence.  It is certainly not about the town taxpayers that pay her salary and benefits.  She is selfish and egotistical at the core since she uses the barrel of the collective bargaining gun for her own egocentric desires for more money, more benefits, and a bigger slice of the taxpayer's pie.  Isn't that what collective bargaining is all about?

Deep down, Ms. Barry wants more of your money and she can only accomplish it with the herd of other teachers.  Powerless as one, but dangerous as many.  Ms. Barry's article ends up being just another ego maniacal diatribe of 'guilting' the community by equating Ms. Barry's individual political and economic freedoms (i.e. more money) with better education in Somerset and "academic excellence."  We all know that is not the case.


Don't be fooled, the teacher's union is not for academic excellence or for better education, it exists solely for the purpose of holding communities hostage for a bigger slice of the revenue pie and, as an important aside, collecting monthly dues to perpetuate the union.  It is nothing more than that....teacher's unions for education and academic excellence is an oxymoron.

I close with a quote from the philosopher and writer Ayn Rand (from The Ayn Rand Letter, 1, 23, 2): "The artificially high wages forced on the economy by compulsory unionism imposed economic hardships on other groups—particularly on non-union workers and on unskilled labor, which was being squeezed gradually out of the market. Today’s widespread unemployment is the result of organized labor’s privileges and of allied measures, such as minimum wage laws. For years, the unions supported these measures and sundry welfare legislation, apparently in the belief that the costs would be paid by taxes imposed on the rich. The growth of inflation has shown that the major victim of government spending and of taxation is the middle class. Organized labor is part of the middle class—and the actual value of labor’s forced “social gains” is now being wiped out."

Let's Guilt The Somerset Taxpayers

Here come the scare tactics and dooms day scenarios from the K-8 school department.  

For the second consecutive year, the K-8 school department will be begging Somerset taxpayers for more money due to apparent deficit spending over and above the appropriation.  Last year, it was about $299,000.  This year they are reporting a $477,972 deficit!  We all realize this was the apparent fault of the prior school administration, but this is now two consecutive years of deficit spending which equals about three-quarters of a million dollars! This is totally unacceptable of the elected school committee and administration and I really do not care about the blame game.  The bottom line for me is utter incompetence and complete disregard for taxpayer's money is resulting in me being begged for more of my money.  That is the outcome and it is a negative outcome and unacceptable.

Whatever happened to the $600,000 savings due to the closure of Wilbur Elementary and the consolidation to three elementary schools? There was no savings since the school department actually spent more than what was appropriated.  No savings at all!  Our children have been uprooted and bused all over town with large class sizes and complete turmoil for $0 in cost savings.  Have you forgotten this already?

How about when the school department said Somerset taxpayers would save hundreds of thousands of dollars by hiring special education teachers and not outsourcing.  Guess what, there was no savings.  $0 in savings...have you forgotten this already?

How about when at the May 19, 2014 Town Meeting, voters appropriated $17,919,878 to the K-8 school department and it was touted and celebrated that this amount was a 3.1% or $320,000 reduction from the prior year's budget.  Guess what, there was no reduction in the budget.  Have you forgotten this already?

Clearly, the modus operandi of the K-8 school department is to lie to Somerset taxpayers to get what they demand for money.  They lie about cost savings and reduced budgets and convince the herd to vote for their fuzzy budgets.  They claim they are saving money, spending wisely, and being fiscally responsible to the taxpayers.  Then, they go ahead and spend more than the budget appropriation by $477,972 only to beg voters on December 1, 2014 for a magical stabilization account withdrawal to make ends meet!  

I'm sick of it!  I'm sick of the phony politicians and the phony administration lying to me over and over again!  I'm sick and tired of the phony scare tactics and dooms day scenarios about what would happen if we don't fork over another $477,972 this year and $299,000 last year.  The real dooms day scenario is coming when Brayton Point shutters the plant forever in 2017.  Where will this school department turn when there is no stabilization account and Somerset taxpayers are taxed out of existence?  Are you thinking ahead or are you just trying to steal what you can before the bottom falls out?

The stark reality is neither the past nor current K-8 school department is making the needed budget and personnel cuts to prepare Somerset for the coming fiscal catastrophe.  Instead, they are lying about budgets, overspending, and stealing money from the magical stabilization account whenever they can!

The masterminds of Somerset politics will now engage the scare tactics of "service reductions" and "it is for the children" slogans to summarily guilt the masses into forking over another $477,972 to their already bloated and growing expenditures.  

Will we really allow them to fool us twice?  I won't....I'm voting NO and I encourage everyone to do the same!  Help spread the word!!!

$40,000,000 in Lavish Obama/Biden Vacations

Taxpayers of America have paid for Obama and Biden family and personal vacations to the tune of $40,000,000 over the past six dreadful years.  Check out this story and this story to revel in the liberal hypocrisy....

While my family and I scrape enough money to just go to New Hampshire for a few days (just four days and 3 nights in NH), the Obama's and Biden's live like kings and queens at taxpayer expense!  While Obama and Biden lecture America on "income inequality" and "raising the minimum wage" and "racism" and "paying your fair share" and "wall street evilness" and virtually all of their Socialist mumbo jumbo, they live like kings at our expense and our toil!  

Obama and Biden have cost America $40,000,000 (6.7 million dollars per year) in just six years of lavish vacations to Hawaii, Aspen, Martha's Vineyard, Key Largo, Palm Springs, Africa, Ireland; all billed directly to the taxpayers of America!  The costs do not include the price of pre-positioning security assets, helicopters and ships near the vacation and business trip sites, food, housing, or money spent for staff accommodations and travel.

These people are sick and those that voted for them are even more so.  But, the hypocrisy is so blinding.  The constant lectures by these Marxist Democrats about "income inequality", "working hard", and "paying your fair share" while they circle the globe on the taxpayer's dime.  

Outrageous hypocrisy!!

Unemployment Lies and Propaganda

Let's complete some needed analysis about how the federal government and the Associated Press lies about the unemployment rate.  

If you haven't heard yet, the AP reported "U.S. employers added 248,000 jobs in September, a burst of hiring that helped drive down the unemployment rate to 5.9 percent, the lowest since July 2008. The Labor Department report Friday also showed that employers added a combined 69,000 more jobs in July and August than the government had previously estimated."

Wow, what wonderful news from our federal government!  This is really awesome!  I guess all is well and the economy is just purring like a kitten now!  We can go back and talk about genitalia, skin pigmentation, income equality, and the Redskins, right?  Wrong...

This is all lies and data manipulation and convenient data picking by the government.  The AP story is filled with government lies and government propaganda and I'll prove it to you:

The reason the unemployment rate slid to 5.9% is due to the complete collapse in the labor force participation rate!  In September, the labor force participation rate slid from an already three decade low from 62.8% to 62.7%.  This is the lowest labor force participation rate in over 36 years, matching the February 1978 lows during the dreadful Carter administration. What is more disturbing is that the people not in the labor force rose to a new record high, increasing dramatically by 315,000 to 92.6 million!  

The fact is, when one counts all these people the government conveniently doesn't count as unemployed, the unemployment rate is much higher, perhaps even close to 30%!  While the government fraudulently declares 248,000 added jobs in the AP story, 315,000 people dropped out of the labor force at the same time, a net loss of 67,000 jobs.  The real data doesn't lie.  The fantastic web site Zero Hedge has the real story...



Oh, and speaking of gender and misogyny (liberals always bring up the war on women) , a record 55,553,000 women 16 years and older did not participate in the labor force in September, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. This means that 55,553,000 women in the United States did not have a job and did not actively seek one in the past four weeks.


Do you understand?

Somerset's Most Mentally Deranged Man

The man must be ostracized in Somerset.  Demands must be made of SATV to remove his show from the air immediately.  Someone should notify the Department of Correction of this man's public and mental behavior in Somerset.  Someone needs to get this person some mental help...if you do not know what I am talking about, please read this Herald News article.

Clearly, there is something drastically "off" with this person.  What full-grown adult in sound mind would videotape a Selectman drinking coffee at a sandwich shop on County Street? What full-grown adult in sound mind would photograph the Selectman's minor son as a common pedophile would do?  What full-grown adult in sound mind would apply a bumper sticker to a Selectman's truck without their permission?  Is this normal behavior for a full-grown man?

This man is clearly not in sound mind.  In fact, it is clear that he is nuts. N.U.T.S. nuts!  I'm talking crazy, sick, demented, mentally ill, mentally deranged, insane, mad as a hatter, non compos mentis!!  The man is unhinged!  The man is out of his mind!  He needs mental help now before it is too late!  I think there needs to be an intervention with his family soon before something serious happens to him or someone else.  I'm serious, this person is flirting with insanity and mental derangement and he needs mental help or some sort of psycho-analysis to help him cope with reality!  I really hope this guy doesn't have access to guns or other weaponry, since his mental illness may one day get the better of him and/or someone else...

Perhaps it would be a good thing to start sending an endless bombardment of emails to SATV management demanding they remove his lunatic-fringe program from SATV production.  I'm not saying you should, but... inquiry@somersetaccesstv.org

Perhaps someone should notify the Department of Corrections of this man's scary instability and mental illness as it may impact his ability to to do his very important job effectively. There are already enough mentally ill people in prison (behind the bars), we certainly don't need mentally ill corrections officers guarding them (in front of the bars).  As taxpayers in Massachusetts, we pay his salary and benefits and we have the right to ensure mentally ill corrections officers are known to management so they can be dealt with accordingly. Perhaps there is an outreach program?  Maybe they offer a licensed mental health professional that can provide support and resources for dealing with his problems before it is too late?

This man is Somerset's most mentally deranged man...non compos mentis, indeed!

A Policy Foreign to America

The country of Iran, their government, and their leaders are the epicenter of global Islamic terrorism.  Iran is a state sponsor of Islamic Jihad terrorism against Western Civilization. They are part of the world's axis of evil as George Bush proclaimed.  Iran deemed the United States the "Great Satan" and vowed to destroy America.  Iran supports terrorists that have attacked the United States on 9/11 (which has started World War III), they support Hamas and Hezbollah, they support those Islamic Nazis cockroaches that want to destroy the United States of America in every way.  They are an enemy of the United States in every way. Iran, as you know, is on the verge of obtaining a nuclear weapon that would forever offset the balance of power on the planet.  These are facts that everyone knows, right?

But, did you know that when Obama was running for office in 2008 against McCain he sent a secrete emissary to Iran to meet with the mullahs to assure them he (Obama) was a "friend of the Islamic Republic of Iran" and that when he is elected, they (Iran) would be "very happy" with his policies.  PJ Media has the article as well as Gateway Pundit:
During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.
Allow me to put this in perspective:  The President of the United States, before he became President and before he was elected, sent an emissary to a declared enemy of America with a message that he was sympathetic to their hatred of America and he would do his part (as future president) to limit and withdraw America's military and power from the region and make peace with the Iranian regime (an olive branch to an arch enemy so to speak).  Do I have this correct?  Am I reading too much into this?  Clearly, this was an act of high treason of Obama to grant aid and comfort to the enemy through an intermediary.  How did McCain and then Romney not use this story against Obama during their campaigns?  How did they allow him to get away with such an atrocity, not only once, but twice?  How did the media not report such an important story?

As I've declared before, Barack Hussein Obama is a devout Muslim and a man of Islam.  His father was a devout Muslim and so was his step-father.  Obama is not a Christian at all (not that I care either way, it is all stupidity in my opinion), he is a Muslim and a man of Islam.  

Barack Hussein Obama's sympathies are with the Muslim world and Islam and to the text of the Koran. This is why Obama has supported Hamas against Israel and supported the uprisings of the Muslim Brotherhood throughout the Middle East.  This is why America withdrew from Iraq and have allowed the Islamic State (ISIS) to run a muck through Syria and Iraq.  This is why he has unilaterally removed sanctions from Iran and allowed them time and money to build their nuclear weapon.  It is clear, his devout religion is Islam and his sacred book and text is the Koran.  These are his people.  Obama serves the will of Allah, not the will of Americans.  His heart is with Muslims, all Muslims, in the Middle East and that is his Middle East policy.  This is why no one can understand Obama's foreign policy, because it is really a policy foreign to America...

Anarchy, Chaos, and Destruction is Coming

The most dangerous entity on the face of this earth is not ISIS, China, Russia, North Korea, Iran, or Russia.  It is the United States government.  This government is devouring America at a staggering rate.  This government is devouring our freedoms and our money and our property at a breathtaking pace.  It is all happening on the back of a twisted and outrageous ponzi scheme that is criminal, fraudulent, and ludicrous all at the same time.  The overall primary function of the United States government is now taking money from some people and giving it to others.  It cannot go on like this.  Another great crisis is rapidly approaching and the signs are everywhere.  It may feel just fine now, but the house of cards will soon collapse along with civil society itself.

Evidence of this coming catastrophe is all around you and me and everyone in America:

  • The United States government is borrowing 8 trillion dollars a year
  • The United States national debt has increased by more than a trillion dollars in fiscal year 2014
  • The United States government redeems mature debt for new debt by borrowing more money to pay off previous debts.  For instance, in 2013 the United States redeemed $7,546,726,000,000 in debt for new debt totaling $8,323,949,000,000.  Basically, paying off a credit card with interest with another credit card.
  • The government must borrow 8 trillion dollars a year just to keep up with the ponzi scheme.  The only way this ponzi scheme can continue is if the United States government can continue to borrow massive amounts of money at artificially low interest rates
  • 49% of all Americans live in a home that receives direct monetary "benefits" (i.e. welfare) from the federal government
  • Americans received 2 trillion dollars in "benefits" (i.e. welfare) from the federal government in 2013
  • More than 70% of all federal spending goes to welfare or so called "dependence-creating programs"
  • More than 70 million Americans are on Medicaid and it is projected that ObamaCare will add 16 million more Americans to the Medicaid roles.
  • Medicare cost $110 billion a year in 1990 and $600 billion in 2013
  • Medicare enrollments are projected to increase from 50.7 million in 2012 to 73.2 million in 2025
  • Medicare is facing unfunded liabilities of more than 38 trillion dollars over the next 75 years
  • There are only 1.6 private sector workers for every retiree receiving Social Security benefits
  • Right now, there are 63 million Americans collecting Social Security benefits.  By 2035, that number is projected to balloon to 91 million Americans
  • The Social Security system is facing a 134 trillion dollar shortfall over the next 75 years
  • The United States federal government is facing a total of 222 trillion dollars in unfunded liabilities in the coming years;  Social Security and Medicare make up the bulk of the liabilities
  • The United States government taxed over 2.7 trillion dollars in 2013 and is projected to tax over 3 trillion dollars in 2014.  Regardless, the government spent over 3.25 trillion dollars in 2013 and is projected to spend even more in 2014.
With 8 trillion dollars borrowed year after year (and all these other facts), what happens when interest rates rise 1% or 2% or 3%?  That is when the ponzi scheme comes to a screeching halt and everything collapses.  Your 401k, your pension, your savings, your income all wiped out in one broad stroke.  It will be the collapse of the civil society and life will fall to anarchy, chaos, and destruction.  This catastrophe is coming and it is coming fast.  
Is anyone prepared?

Kafka's Hopeless Despair

Within Franz Kafka's literary genius, Nietzsche and Kierkegaard's philosophy comes alive. It springs off the pages in plain words and dynamic prose.  You feel differently about life and the world and yourself when reading Kafka, and some times these feelings stir for quite sometime.  His writing swirls above my head and vaguely touches my Being, when I try to reach up and grab it, it is lost or changes direction, but there it is again above me when I look away.  The miserable fate and irony his characters find themselves in often finds company in each one of us, all of mankind.  The meaningless, endless, and mindless labyrinths and bureaucracies of society, state, religion, and Being ensnare all mankind into hopeless despair.  The nihilism takes hold and the absurd stares you in the face.  You stare back as time slips away, and the door, your door, closes once and for all.  I've included three parables written by Franz Kafka below (Before The Law was previously posted here).

~Zarathustra


A Little Fable by Franz Kafka

"Alas," said the mouse, "the world is growing smaller every day. At the beginning it was so big that I was afraid, I kept running and running, and I was glad when at last I saw walls far away to the right and left, but these long walls have narrowed so quickly that I am in the last chamber already, and there in the corner stands the trap that I must run into," "You only need to change your direction," said the cat, and ate it up.


Couriers by Franz Kafka

They were given the choice between becoming kings or the couriers of kings. In the manner of children, they all wanted to be couriers. As a result, there are only couriers. They gallop through the world shouting to each other messages that, since there are no kings, have become meaningless. Gladly would they put an end to their miserable existence, but they dare not, because of their oaths of service.



A Message from the Emperor by Franz Kafka

The Emperor—so they say—has sent a message, directly from his death bed, to you alone, his pathetic subject, a tiny shadow which has taken refuge at the furthest distance from the imperial sun. He ordered the herald to kneel down beside his bed and whispered the message in his ear. He thought it was so important that he had the herald speak it back to him. He confirmed the accuracy of the verbal message by nodding his head. And in front of the entire crowd of those witnessing his death—all the obstructing walls have been broken down, and all the great ones of his empire are standing in a circle on the broad and high soaring flights of stairs—in front of all of them he dispatched his herald. The messenger started off at once, a powerful, tireless man. Sticking one arm out and then another, he makes his way through the crowd. If he runs into resistance, he points to his breast where there is a sign of the sun. So he moves forwards easily, unlike anyone else. But the crowd is so huge; its dwelling places are infinite. If there were an open field, how he would fly along, and soon you would hear the marvellous pounding of his fist on your door. But instead of that, how futile are all his efforts. He is still forcing his way through the private rooms of the innermost palace. Never will he win his way through. And if he did manage that, nothing would have been achieved. He would have to fight his way down the steps, and, if he managed to do that, nothing would have been achieved. He would have to stride through the courtyards, and after the courtyards through the second palace encircling the first, and, then again, through stairs and courtyards, and then, once again, a palace, and so on for thousands of years. And if he finally burst through the outermost door—but that can never, never happen—the royal capital city, the centre of the world, is still there in front of him, piled high and full of sediment. No one pushes his way through here, certainly not someone with a message from a dead man. But you sit at your window and dream of that message when evening comes.

God's Infinite Absurdity

The Pope went off recently on how Satan seduces mankind by "disguising evil as good."  He claimed there is "an ongoing battle between the devil and mankind and he asked that you pray to the angels to defend yourself."  The Pope said “He [Satan] presents things as if they were good, but his intention is destruction."  He outlines the struggle between God and the devil in eternity.  You can read all about it here.  

What the Pope admits here is that his God is not omnipotent, that his God is not omniscient, and that his God is not benevolent. The Pope is admitting that Satan can and will seduce mankind and is able to disguise evil as good even when God exists as the all-powerful creator of all matter.  What a contradiction!  The Pope [a man like any other] is readily admitting that God cannot stop Satan and that you need to pray for help from some angels to defend yourself.  He apparently cannot help you in your defense, you must turn to angels to conquer Satan on your own.  This God of his created all of mankind and all of the universe, including Satan (why would he do such a thing), but now this Satan creation cannot be stopped.  You must pray to the angels to help stop Satan, because God and Christ are powerless to stop him!  Defeat has been admitted!

It certainly seems beyond the Pope's capacity to question why God does not simply annihilate Satan once and for all.  It certainly seems beyond the Pope's capacity to question why God created such a destructive and seductive force as this Satan.   It certainly seems beyond the Pope's capacity to question why God would create an entity that would go against his will and tempt mankind in ways that upsets God.  It certainly seems beyond the Pope's capacity to question why God has created such a contradiction in logic.

Allow me to clarify the dogma:  God, infinite in wisdom, omnipotent, omniscient, benevolent being existing without end created the heavens and earth and all matter and everything you see and touch and hear and all of mankind and animals and the sea.  This God with infinite knowledge and infinite power and infinite benevolence over all forces and wills created his antithesis and his contradiction and named him Satan or the Devil knowing said Satan would tempt and seduce his other creations into evil.  He knew it would happen because he is omniscient and he could do it because he is omnipotent.  He willed Satan into existence knowing full well that Satan would seduce and disguise evil as good, he willed Satan into existence knowing full well he would need to struggle with Satan, despite the fact that God is said to be all-powerful and does not need to struggle with anything.  His infinite omnipotence would allow him to snuff out Satan, yet he either cannot or will not snuff him out.  His infinite benevolence to mankind, his creation, is demonstrated by creating an entity [Satan] to trip up mankind and to sucker punch mankind at every turn.  This is what your God is!  You have become a play thing dangling at the end of a string, along with the rest of mankind, to be tempted and to struggle with evil because your God willed it this way.  

Absurd ignorance!

Or you can rest assured there are no such things as this God, this Satan, and these angels and the contradiction evaporates and you sleep well too...
