More and more, it is clear that basic human values are not being passed on to new generations from their parents and grandparents, and when those who lack these values are in turn having and “raising” children, the problem expands, possibly exponentially: we are, as Heinlein once stated, raising the “barbarians” (“savages” is a better term) that will (ARE!) destroying our civilization IN that very society.
Home front – amorality
Shocking “bum hunts” on the rise?
(CBSNews.com) – In 2006, 60 Minutes reported on a perverse national trend referred to as “bum hunting,” in which packs of teenagers stalk, attack, even shoot homeless people. Seven years later, that trend is still on the rise. In the original story, correspondent Ed Bradley and producer Graham Messick reported that since 1999, there had been 500 attacks against homeless people, resulting in 180 deaths. That number has since doubled. In 2010, the National Coalition for the Homeless reported there had been over a thousand acts of violence and
more than 300 deaths.
Mama’s Note: And people don’t think there are any such things as “zombies?” These young sociopaths certainly qualify in my mind. They kill helpless people for “fun?” Dear God.
Nathan: Well, they just want in on the “fun” – after all, cops and occupation troops get to do it all the time. So do “terrorists.”
Mama’s Note: The key was mentioned in the article, actually. They have no idea at all the difference between right and wrong.
Nathan: No, they are “feral” and it is getting that more and more people are: not immoral but amoral. And with little or no fear of getting caught, and if caught, of getting punished. And since more and more people believe that bums or beggars should have been aborted, well, what’s the down side for the thrill seekers?
We see this same hideous situation in foreign areas, where the civilized are preyed upon not just by the savages, but by the governments which claim to exist to protect them.
African collapse – Islamic war: African front
The Nigerian military has collected 42 bodies and transported 18 injured students to Damaturu Specialist Hospital
(Breitbart.com) … said a military intelligence official, who insisted on anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the press. The school’s other 1,000 enrolled students have fled the college that is about 40 kilometers (25 miles) north of the scene of similar school attacks around Damaturu town, said provost Mato.
Nathan: This is the latest in the weekly attacks against religious schools and assembled churches in Nigeria: a war that uses “terror tactics” against unarmed and unprotected people as its major method of waging war. It is not just “christians” that are attacked, though they seem to be the major targets. Muslims that are “moderate” (and thus WORSE than infidels) are routinely killed. Yet, the US FedGov and most Western nations refuse to condemn these with anything more than lip service. And of course, their own governments refuse to allow these people to defend themselves: indeed to the point of killing anyone who arms themselves to protect themselves, their families, neighbors, churches or other congregations.
On to some other news.
Home front – Energy
Colorado: Shell abandons Western Slope oil shale project
Mama’s Note: The good news is that the oil will still be there when conditions are again right to reclaim it. 🙂
Nathan: Indeed. Shell joins Chevron in bailing out, and it has happened before and no doubt will again. The shale oil project has been going on for near a half-century, with ups and downs, including (as I recall) a couple of nuclear “devices” (explosives, people) used to break up the shale and let the oil out. But this oil shale is much different from the shale we are pulling oil and gas from now in the Bakken in North Dakota and Montana, and the Marcellus in Pennsylvania and West Virginia: harder and more expensive to deal with and extract the oil. The efforts to deal with the newer, more valuable finds mean this again gets shelved, but the technology developed in the shale gas and oil sector will be useful when they do decide to go after this stuff. In the meantime, it isn’t going anywhere.
ObummerCare – Home Front (2 stories)
Gallup: At Least 25% of Uninsured Americans Say They Will Stay That Way
Nathan: It IS their choice, at least for now. And government can’t STAND that. Of course, government will steal more and more money from them as time goes on, supposedly to “provide” for these uninsured people. Any and every excuse to steal money and grow government, whether Democrat or Republican. Of course, they CLAIM that they don’t know what they are doing, according to the next person.
Nathan: Sound familiar? Dems didn’t used to be this stupid: Imagine if Kennedy and Johnson had run the Moon program this way?
Mama’s Note: It will “work” exactly as intended. Before too long, all things remaining equal, this aptly named “train wreck” will be so terrible that a lot of uninformed and hurting people will begin to demand single payer, national “health care.” This has ALWAYS been the goal. The really sad thing is that it is so obvious, and it’s still going to happen unless something else truly terrible gets in the way.
Nathan: Sounds more like the people being punished are those who voted for people who don’t want to waste money on ObummerCare.
With the example of government predation on the general population, is there any wonder that “private-enterprise” thugs – ferals – would assume an open season on everyone?
Mama’s Note: Everyone who can’t or won’t fight back. That number seems to be shrinking fast.
