Sometime ago I came to the conclusion that I am doing very little but wasting time on Politix posting hours every day. My writing skills and vocabulary have deteroiated to the point that my goal of being someone with sufficent skills to bring attention to what I think is the greatest danger facing America won't happen. Extremism.
In my lifetime I marched for civil rights, women's rights, to stop the Viet Nam war. I was a liberal. But the liberal movement turned on the common white male and without any say so in the matter we were designated as the enemy. Ronald Reagan was a young man with wide "Hollywood eyes" in the 1950's much of Hollywood was going fashinably Communist. He tried to join the party along with his idols and was rejected for being too dumb. He turned arch conservative. Most of us will walk away from those who don't want us.
I still believe in civil rights and women's rights and yes, gay rights. I don't like effinamte men and masculine women but that's just me. That's not a right's issue. The point is the left has become the party not of rights but pay backs for every perceived injustice ever done. La Raza is a organization dedicated to the supremacy of Mexicans in America. The NAACP is an organization dedicated to the supremacy of the black American. Neither actually represent Latinos or Blacks anymore than the KKK represents Caucasians. It's all about power and money. Always has been.
Minorites in America are as racist against whites today as any white is racist against minorities by and large. And against each other. There are exceptions of course and many of them, but when your country is becoming a country where the majority will be living below the poverty line you will have more racism that you had before. Rioters and looters don't burn and loot Beverely Hills. That burn and loot their own neighborhoods. They hate the Korean Grocer who hates them for stealing. The Blacks hate the Mexicans for taking their neighborhoods. The whites hate the blacks for taking their neighborhoods. And the Mexicans hate everyone including other Non Mexican Latinos.

The right has become the party of old out of touch white people for the most part who really do not have a clue what is going on in most of America. They long for an era when white men could beat their wives and children and nobody said a word. When they could tell a black man to get out of their restaurant or hotel. They do this out of fear. They all know a black or other minority that they actually like. That they have no problem with. That they would sit down to dinner with. But they are afraid of minorities because minorities just won't assimilate to what the old white know as the American way. And minorities won't do anything about the gang culture among their own.
They can't. It's easy enough to say kids shouldn't be in gangs. But they will be when there is no opportunity for the almighty buck anywhere else other than a minimum wage job.
Both the left and right become more extremist by the year. In fear of what this country is becoming. Just like those who don't loot and burn Beverly Hills because they can't do anything but hate each other. People can't approach their government any longer and expect response. Our government has become a pawn for Wall Street profit. Everything else we bicker about daily is smoke screening for the real problems of America. We talk about a deficit but how does that deficit come about? Funneling money from D,.C. to the ultra riches interests. We wail if the stock market goes down. What is the stock market but a place where the rich make money? You should care for what reason? Because they create jobs? Not for nearly 30 years now have they created desirable jobs. Jobs are gone. They won't be coming back. KFC the chicken company makes more money today in China than they do in the USA. We are an afterthought country beyond our Military today. We are not that important as we once were. We need to re-invent America or fall. But we won't. We'll sit right here bickering over guns, gays, religion, and whatever social issue we can find to bicker about. We'll complain about our rights being taken from us but we won't do anything about it. Except Bitch.
On Politix, since coming here, I am the most prolific bitcher of anyone. I post more posts. Get more ups. Get more endorsements than anyone. What does that mean? Nothing. It doesn't pay the bills. It has no future. It convinces no one of anything. A lobbyist who clearly does not have the working class interests in mind can get op-eds on Politix. You or I can't. We do not matter here or anywhere else in America anymore. The internet has changed us from the silent majority to the bitching majority but it hasn't changed a thing for the better. Since coming here I have not seen one featured article by a single common person. How can we possibly be more interested in what a Lobbyist has to say than what "DASRB" would have to say on an Op-Ed? More interested in what some school teacher in Utah has to say about religion than what a bright young college student known as "KIRBSTOMP" has to say? More interested in what some NRA spokesperson has to say than what a modern day Will Rogers like "STEPPED IN IT" has to say? This is most average guy, yet naturally intelligent person on the site. Yet they are never featured? Why? There are people on both sides here that should be heard instead of the same ole crap that we can get on any news site anywhere at any time.

There is Poster BILL2E. Who single handledy changed my views of the average southern white male. He's an articulate moderate who will consider both sides of an issue. We need more op-eds from moderates and less from lobbyists. Why wouldn't white Ameica want to hear from ROCO who is a solid middle class, calm, articulate black man. We certainly get our daily does of extremist blacks on both sides. What about a Mr Average American dream black man?
What about giving 0p-ed space for liberals like HANKF68 and conservatives like PENN 1699 who still have the ability to rise above party line rhetoric at times?
Those I have mentioned and others have my respect if not my agreement at all times.
At any rate I have been my own worst enemy. I've lost many months doing nothing all week long but posting. It has been somewhat of respite from my grieving process that seems to go on forever. But you folks have made me realize that I'm a nobody. Just another poster wasting time. I have a novel to write. You'll never hear of it or see the TV series most likely but it needs to be written. A comedy about a former guitarist rock star who opened a record store/recording studio in Hollywood and the characters that go through his life. Just in case I'm wrong and you see it somewhere it will be called "Strutters". They say writers should write about what they know. They were right.
To all of you, thank you for your outrage, your opinons, your support and your foolishness. You have driven me back to my first love. Writing. I'll just be writing about something else. Something that just might matter.
To "Butch Cassidy". This all your fault. You know that right? Everytime I listen to you things spiral out of control. Heh..
Take care people. Jesse Jaymes
