Common Sense, Business & Politics

Ship of Fools

I highly recommend Tucker Carlson’s book Ship of Fools.  Carlson explains “How a selfish ruling class is bringing America to the brink of a revolution.”

Carlson exposes the ruling class.  That is what I often refer to as the political elite which includes:

  • The deep state
  • Unelected bureaucrats
  • Big money
  • The swamp
  • The Washington establishment
  • Career Republicans in Name Only or (RINOs )
  • Career Democrats


In the past the political elite cared about individual freedom and liberty.  Now they only care about maintaining their power.

The tech giants like Face book and Amazon have become the countries new oligarchs, but they don’t create jobs like the old giants of industry.

The political elite want open border’s because they want to “Import a Serf Class” which will keep wages down and who will vote for them.

A globalist agenda is financially beneficial to the ruling class.  They also talk peace and promote wars because it makes them money.

Free speech is a problem for the political elite.  That is why they work to control education and the media.  Promoting political correctness is also one of their successful tools.

America used to be the melting pot of the world.  Now politicians divide the country in every way imaginable.  They use race, sex, religion and anything else they can think of to divide the country.  The only thing that can’t be supported in any way is a straight, white, Christian, male.  They are proclaimed evil.

The feminist movement has reached a point where it is no longer helping women.  It is hurting women and men alike.  The political elite don’t promote marriage, because   Democrats know single woman tend to vote Democrat.

Environmentalists have totally gone off the rails.  There was a time they cared about clean air, clean water, garbage, and protecting wildlife.  Those days are gone.  Birds are killed by the thousands by wind farms.  Some of our city streets are covered with garbage, needles, and human feces.  On some beaches, garbage cans been removed because it was too expensive to pick up the garbage.  It is cheaper just to let everyone litter the beach.

Environmentalists now are only concerned with climate change.  This makes sense because they will never be out of a job since it is a problem that can’t be fixed by humans.  Scientific studies are “parameterized” to produce the desired results.  The political elite love the issue of climate change because it is an excellent means to redistribute wealth and increase their wealth and power.

Tucker explains why Donald Trump’s election is so threatening to them.  Trump wants to represent ALL of America and take power away from the ruling class.

Read the book.  I learned a lot from it.

“Trump did not bring division.  Division brought Trump.  If you don’t see that, then you’re part of the problem.” – Ava Armstrong

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

    When I started reading this I thought you went nuts, but I read on thinking maybe you were going to compare this to healthcare insurance. Great comparison. I do my own car maintenance and I take care of my health and avoid visits to the doctor’s office / clinic like I avoid auto mechanics and ticks. I do buy tires and have them mounted and have had a clutch replaced. Other than that timing belts and water pumps on PT Cruisers don’t even stop me… neither does exercise and trying to eat right and maintain a reasonable weight. Great blog post.

    For the USA to get back to a great nation the people will have to turn back to their Christian faith and all that faith encompasses. God will not bless a nation where He is not first in the hearts of the people of that nation. God will not bless an individual where that individual has other “gods”. Trump, like Obama came into power as it says in Romans 13:1 and in other places in God’s Word / Scripture / Bible.And then read on you culturally Christian Democrats, verses 2 – 7 in Romans chapter 13. God’s purpose is to get folks to turn back to, or for the first time to turn to Him and His ways so He can bless them and their nation.

    Yes we need more authentic Christian morality in the USA. The current cultural Christianity found in the USA where a large population claims to be Christian and has bought into the prevailing culture in this country. That has blended a culture which has it’s ” that’s in there” attitude when it comes to scripture they haven’t read again for the first time, into their flavor of morality, faith / view of God’s laws and moral man’s laws. This has weakened the Christian faith to the point where “cultural Christians” accept that which is not true authentic Christianity. They have done this led by some religious denominations who tone down their religion because they do not want to offend those who attend their weekly services. They do not realize that getting back to authentic Christian faith and morality would be good for their flock and the nation. Finally many members of church flocks do not have the guts to bring there faith into their and other’s lives outside their religious organization’s building. They snuff out their light when it comes to taking an active part in remolding their culture back to authentic Christianity.

    State government here in Wisconsin is run by lifelong bureaucrats that write the administrative rules after the legislature passes hollow laws that directs the regulations to be written by all the many State agencies. Trouble with that is that too many of these agencies , DNR, DSPS, DOR, DOA, ETC are “guided” by appointed boards / committees that are loaded with folks with specific self or industry interests and the rules they write on behalf of the legislation are quite biased. Even though they hold public meetings to review the rules, that is nothing more than a dog and pony show. The special interests get their ways because they have the ear of the bureaucrats. And the bureaucrats do not have the integrity (balls) to do the right thing because it is more like work. Take the building Codes, Wisconsin is still stuck on the 2011 NEC and a law passed in 2007 concerning electrical inspections has not had rules passed and approved yet because the bureaucrats are too unmotivated by industry to do their own work and move “forward” . A word found on the Wisconsin flag. Bureaucrats slow down government and when things do not go their “buddies’ “way they find ways to shift rules to satisfy their buddies / lobbyists. Sometimes moving things backwards. And who know whose palms are being grea$ed.
