Thread: Weighing in on Social Decline in America

1. #NeverTrumper Steven Hayward hand-wrings about youngsters’ ideological proclivities these days versus us “oldsters.”…
2. “Americans aged 18 to 29 are as positive about socialism (51%) as they are about capitalism (45%). This represents a 12-point decline in young adults’ positive views of capitalism in just the past two years and a marked shift since 2010, when 68% viewed it positively.“
3. “Meanwhile, young people’s views of socialism have fluctuated somewhat from year to year, but the 51% with a positive view today is the same as in 2010.”
4. “Older Americans have been consistently more positive about capitalism than socialism. For those 50 and older, twice as many currently have a positive view of capitalism as of socialism.”
5. Tell us something we didn’t already know, Steven! And you’d have gifted us Shrillary and decline with your anti-Trump antics in 2016 if you could have. We’re way ahead of you in analyzing the political landscape and the downward trend over the past few decades!
6. I believe a good argument could be presented that the social decline taking place today no longer can end peacefully. The entire system of public education is quite thoroughly saturated with left-thinking 'educators'. We touched on that yesterday:
7. This is a design that socialist 'useful idiots' have been nurturing for many, many decades. There's nothing new about this. The initiatives were started, at the latest, in the 1930s in America; Progressive SCOTUS Judge Louis Brandeis comes to mind.…
8. The Ivory Tower (the cradle of the teaching profession) has been effectively churning out left-thinking leadership since the likes of John Dewey and accelerated by Cloward and Piven.
9. The social dystrophy of the Vietnam era offered lucrative impetus for their efforts.
10. The Left's message...the substance of their agenda...has become systemic; young minds have been distorted to the realty that productivity is required for the lifestyle they consider 'normal' and the means by which that takes place.
11. The essential rudiments of human nature and capitalism are simply not addressed; and to the degree that they are, the notion of individual gain - labeled, 'greed' – is presented as an inexcusable crime in capital success.
12. In short: today's youth simply does not know any better. And they won't till the system collapses. And as long as the goodies produced by capitalism continue at reasonable cost, they won’t be awakened.
13. At the crux of this dilemma lies a root cause you have alluded to: PARENTS. Or, perhaps more correctly, their absence (or dereliction – take your pick).
14. Therein lies the problem today: an ever-expanding generational gap between effective parenting and the tenets by which children were effectively reared in the past, the growing unfamiliarity with those principles, & a complete ignorance of the dismal results in their absence.
15. When we get to the bottom line, within the moral and ethical constructs of a Judeo-Christian culture (which is how the country got started), the youth of today do not KNOW how to BE 'parents'.
16. This is entirely dangerous, indeed, for the preservation of The Republic. We are seeing hopelessness & dismay propagated across the generations – which is exactly what they Left wants! The Millenials succumbing to the siren’s song of socialism is just a symptom. ///The end.

Thread: On My Statement of Purpose and A Promise

1. Some time ago, @Sensimiola2 sent me a very kind note regarding threads, and I replied at length to explain my purpose in writing them – a sort of “Twitter raison d'être” for me.
2. In retrospect, that response is worth conveying to all followers, many of whom have replied positively to my threads since I started some months ago. It provides a sort of how and why for my threading and is presented as follows, plus as bit more at the end:
3. S2, thank you for your kind words! I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to convey far more than the usual one-liners, which fact dovetails nicely with your sense of the decline of standards, especially in basic communications.

Thread: Progressive Marxist Mobs Denigrate Democracy, Claw at Supreme Court’s Doors, Attack Senator’s Homes, Invade Restaurants

By Capt Joseph R. John, October 8, 2018: Op Ed # 405
1. The below listed article discuss the resistance and anarchy perpetrated by the New Socialist Democrat Party, Radical Leftists, the Socialist Party of America, and Anarchists, who threaten tranquility with cries for “Impeachment” of the US President, and a USSC Justice---
1A. ---“Impeachment” based only on allegations, with no corroborating evidence, is to “Bear False Witness”.

(1 of 4) Mini-Rant Time! The women of the Left – owners of the Kavanaugh debacle – all imagine they’ve been sexually assaulted – by Trump or his supporters. In their wildest fantasies! They wear vagina hats to their anti-male Misandry Rallies ---- *guffaw*.
(2 of 4) That’s the ticket. Celebrate your genitalia for the world to see the absurd hypocrisy of mobilized female hysteria in action. Western women are far too rich & coddled for their own good.
(3 of 4) Too much free time on their hands; too little invested in their actual livelihood and physical security. Imagine: they are 100% in favor of infanticide. And they were on display for all to see during the Kavanaugh confirmation process!

The Correct Answer

1. Three friends from the local congregation were asked, "When you're in your casket, and friends and congregation members are mourning over you, what would you like them to say?"
2. Artie said, "I would like them to say I was a wonderful husband, a fine spiritual leader, and a great family man."
3. Eugene commented, "I would like them to say I was a wonderful teacher and servant of God who made a huge difference in people's lives."

Thread: Why Do They Do It, and What Needs to be Done

1. Many people wonder why those working in federal agencies are involved in the crimes that we’ve only begun to see exposed in the DoJ, FBI, IRS, State Department, etc.
2. After all, giving one’s life towards “service to the country” is supposed to be a noble endeavor – or at least that’s what the political elite, legacy media megaphones, and others have been telling us for decades, isn’t it?
3. Except that, in the Age of Trump, we’re finding out that many of these people – especially those in the upper echelons of federal law enforcement agencies – aren’t as altruistic as we have been led to believe. In fact, many of them are down-right crooks!

Thread: What to Expect in for the Next Senate Confirmation Hearing for a Republican-appointed Supreme Court Nominee

1. Time to reflect on the Kavanaugh nomination process and look ahead to what might happen the next time around.
2. We’ve witnessed farce, perjury, witness tampering, conspiracy, violent protests, lack of personnel security in Senate office buildings, & obvious collusion between the @capitolpolice and the Dem Party in letting highly-paid protesters into hearing rooms, corridors & elevators.
3. And there are countless deranged calls for violence against Justice Kavanaugh and his family, as well as on Senate Republicans and their staffs, in social media and on legacy media TV networks (MSN-BS, most prominently).
