The ugly truth about elitist America and the harm they have caused
I woke up early this morning for no good reason.
I flipped on YouTube and began watching several brilliant articles recently posted as opinions by Victor Davis Hanson and highlighted by Fox News. Here are brief excerpts but the last one, Members of previous generations now seem like giants — When did we become so small, is mindbogglingly huge.
To be honest, I was disturbed by President Trump in his vicious attacks against Joe Biden and his son. Now, I believe his behavior was entirely justified. We are not doing enough to expose rampant corruption in America, an emerging third world country.
Wake the hell up America!
On the Shoulders of Giants
"If progressives and socialists can at last convince the American public that their country was always hopelessly flawed, they can gain power to remake it based on their own interests. These elites see Americans not as unique individuals but as race, class and gender collectives, with shared grievances from the past that must be paid out in the present and the future."
"We’ve seen something like this fight before, in 1861 — and it didn’t end well."
"In these times of near civil war, Americans agree on almost nothing. Yet sometime in 2019, almost all of America finally got “woke” on China."
"For years, our leaders had yawned about Silk Road neo-imperialism in Africa and Asia, and gross abuses of human rights against Chinese religious minorities and political dissidents."
"Almost every assumption Washington made, both by Democratic and Republican administrations, was logically flawed at best. And at worst, these calculations were a weird mix of conservative commercial greed, liberal political correctness and shared screwball naiveté."
"Few cared about the “losers” in the now-hollowed-out Midwest and in rural America. For corporate America, domestic muscular labor could be easily and cheaply replaced by millions of Chinese workers. Outsourcing and offshoring pulled investment capital out of America and put it overseas, as Chinese-assembled products brought far greater profits."
Academics could not have cared less that the Deplorables and the working classes were being wiped out, given their politically incorrect social and cultural views.
"Donald Trump got elected president, all the while screaming that the Chinese emperor had no clothes. The cheerleaders finally listened and admitted that China had been buck naked after all."
"Now we will learn whether America woke up just in time or too late. Either way, no one will credit the loud Trump for warning that China was threatening not just the U.S. but the world as we have known it."
Does anyone believe that contemporary Americans could build another transcontinental railroad in six years?
"Californians tried to build a high-speed rail line. But after more than a decade of government incompetence, lawsuits, cost overruns, and constant bureaucratic squabbling, they have all but given up. The result is a half-built overpass over the skyline of Fresno — and not yet a foot of track laid."
"Contemporary Californians would have little food or water without these massive transfers, and yet they often ignore or damn the generation that built the very system that saves us."
"America went to the moon in 1969 with supposedly primitive computers and backward engineering. Does anyone believe we could launch a similar moonshot today? No American has set foot on the moon in the last 47 years, and it may not happen in the next 50 years."
