Dr. Jack Devere Minzey, born 6 October 1928, died 8 April 2018, was the Department Head of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as a prolific author of numerous books, most of which were on the topic of Education and the Government role therein. 
(Editor's note)This was the last of his works: 

Civil War:  How do civil wars happen?  By Dr. Jack Devere Minzey

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country.  And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge.  That's the basic issue here.  Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country.  When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

The Mueller investigation was about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election.  We all know that.  But it's not the first time they've done this.  The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't really win.  The Supreme Court gave him the election.  There's a pattern here

What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean?  It means they don't accept the results of any election that they don't win.  It means they don't believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.  That's a civil war.

There's no shooting.  At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice.  But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.  

This isn't dissent  It's not disagreement.  You can hate the other party.  You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country.  But then you work harder to win the next election.  When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what you want is a dictatorship.

Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own.  Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's inherently illegitimate The Democrats lost Congress.  They lost the White House.  So what did they do?  They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats.  Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the system that runs this country.  The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything.  And I mean anything.  He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens.  He can fine you for not having health insurance.  He can use the IRS as his own police force and imprison citizens who speak against him.  He can provide guns and money (Fast and Furious) (Iran nuclear deal) to other countries to support his own agenda, and watch while one of America's Ambassador's is dragged through the streets and murdered doing nothing to aid our citizens.  His power is unlimited.  He's a dictator.  But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can't do anything.  He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented.  A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy.  A Republican doesn't even have the 'discretion' to reverse him.  That's how the game is played.  That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular fight.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce immigration law.  But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws.  Under Obama, a state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission.  But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.  The Constitution has something to say about that.  Whether it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country.  If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land.  This is what I call a moving dictatorship

Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding:  Professional government is a guild.  Like medieval guilds.  You can't serve in if you're not a member.  If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals.  If you aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club.  He brought in a bunch of people who aren't in the club with him.

Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them.  They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail.  They use the tools of power to bring them down.

That's not a free country.

It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election.  It's not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition.  It's not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media.  It's not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn't supposed to win did.

Have no doubt, we're in a civil war between conservative volunteer government and a leftist socialist Democrat professional government.

Well now Pilgrims and Patriots, having read the above, I suggest two things:  forward this very timely, very important analysis to those whom you believe think like you do (and those that don't) and make sure you vote on every Election day!"
The financial and commercial disruption will dwarf the medial effects of COVID-19. China is "only" 28% of the work's manufacturing BUT, much of that manufacturing is parts and sub-assemblies of goods made in other countries, especially US. And it is shut down and [announced that] do not expect new container shipping until June. That hits the American Railroad and Trucking industries.
Wuhan is not the modern city it is because of its entertainment industry. It is a major manufacturing center of 11 mil. They are already suffering general, if not total, food shortage.

You say the Shadow Government doesn't exist. To say that is have undeserved trust in a Government. 
We are called "conspiracy theorists" for entertaining the suspicion the one more time the Government is FSCKing us. You say "Snopes said it never happened" but you heard it or saw it. So excuse me for believing this is misinformation too.
From spraying virii into the New York and San Francisco subways to "Miss Ever's Boys"* in the Tuskeegee Experiment, the Government has consistently disregarded the knowing consent of participants in their projects.
For the first five years here, just fifty miles North of me, The Government and Lockheed had  an little known unshielded nuclear reactor reacting suspended 50 feet in the air for "research". Basically "to see what happens." Shh! It's a secret.

So you think the Government has gotten honest? Never happen. Lord Acton was correct. Trump is the only one who ever even tried. No wonder they hate him so much. Don Quixote de la Trump. It was a fool's errand. Everyone knows that everyone there is enriching themselves at the public trough above and beyond their legal compensation. Every last one will deny it. You don't mess with a good thing. And they don't give a shit about you!

We like the blame the people at the top, especially if they are not on "our team". But the truth is Party is immaterial posturing debate over trivialities of things they never should have meddled in to begin with. The problem is at every level from top to bottom. And is inherent not in real capitalism, but in this Government dominated capitalism. There is a word for that. a word whose meaning, even in the dictionary has altered over the decades. Now used by the Left to describe anyone who disagrees with them.
And the Webster definition is now "a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual".
When the man who presented the world the Movement described it it was a financial system based on capitalism but controlled by the Government. Private ownership of Property and Government control,  Fascism. It's what we have kids.

We even had a bit of a headstart on Mussolini but we won't call it that. "What's good for General Motors is good for the US". No one said that Government control would be bad for the companies. Labyrinthine rules and regulations never voted in Congress but passed to an Administrative system the an army of unelected bureaucrats. The rules exist in many places to be difficult understand and comply with. They provide a barrier to entry as the cost in money and time block off competition to the established players who are big enough to afford to comply.
But do we have to have the endless wars?

 On Trump
My, look at how the powers that be hate him.  
It seems curious that putting a person who actualy was on the paying side of the equation and loved the "us deplorables" is so reviled by the Elites and the people on the taking side. Not at all. He is up-setting their good thing. He is rocking the boat. He is overturning the apple-cart. He is overturning the tables in the Temple. and they don't like it.

On his taxes. I am not this least bit interested in the theatrics of his taxes. Theatrics? Yes that's all it is. There is a point where you cross-over from the chance of being audited by the IRS to the certainty of it to being continually audited. The Trump organization was large enough to be continually audited. And they are better at it than the U. S. Congress. Between the zealousness of the usual IRS Agent and the Lois Lerners still lurking in there, if there had been anything, we would have known it before he was even Nominated.

To escape my scorning and boring teachers. I read the dictionary cover-to-cover, several versions; and the Encyclopedia topic-by-topic. They were much more interesting than the assigned readings. Probably more educational as well.

Luxomni is vulgar Latin for 'all light' not 'Light for all". That would be 'Lux pro omnia.' The latter would imply the ownership of the light provided was the givers to be given.

       The same with  the rights listed in the Constitution which President Obama decried as "negative rights"; the sine qua non of our nation's founding, the line in the sand beyond which the Government shall not go. Without which the "Several States" would not have banded together to be a Nation, the Bill of Rights.  
      A right is not the Government's to give us. It can only deny them. A right is inherent in our birth. No 'Right' can compel the actions of another soul.

     So is healthcare a right? There is a lot of compulsion to go around, taxpayers, providers, pharmaceutical companies, the pensions that are invested in them,hospitals, Doctors & Nurses and finally patients. That doesn't quite sound like a Right.

Thinking of the Big Bang Theory TV show, I realized that I identified a bit too much with Sheldon Cooper although I have not as great a memory anymore. The writers had really intended us to identify with  Leonard, the George Antrobus, the every man. But no, though not as totally emotionless as Sheldon, much of my thought processes mimic his.
Typing has become more difficult because it is the primary time  my obsessive compulsiveness kicks in, and in my old age my typing is getting worse as I hit adjacent keys instead of the ones I want. Meanwhile the thought pattern is still going into overdrive pursuing ideas, yet at the same time justifying every definition and statement. Hence, Almost ever statement contains the word 'and' two clarifying words of the type which un-worded people would tease me as 25¢ words. (I wonder how much large words are worth today? Last I heard, a dollar.*) More than merely highly precision-ed indecisiveness? The words have concrete meanings. Or could it be depth of inquiry. an excess of options to choose from and so many more to try. The bounds of unlimited curiosity. And our ever-present Master of those boundaries? Time.

It is time to start thinking what comes next, After Trump is elected. 

It will be a disaster no matter which one is elected.  But the disasters will quite different. There will be problems that don't care which one is in place.  Problems that are built into the system, and problems where the die has been cast irrevocably years ago.
But I am interested in the ones that will come possibly as early as the morning after the election.
President Obama and the Establishment cabal of which Hillary is the heir apparent have been setting us up for a number of different wars. Not all of them are external.

1) Race - For the last eight years President Obama. Racial relations have taken a disasterous turn, reversing all the gains in racial harmony of the sixties and seventies. Whether it was by design, which I believe it was, or by accident; it will not miraculously heal when Obama leaves. For all the talk of police attacking blacks,  the truth is that black crime and, especially, murder and mayhem is a real thing. Many of them are at war with white America as well. Trump's election will exacerbate their violence. Probably with almost instantaneous riots.

2) Financial - The Clintons, the Bushes, and Obama were wholly owned representatives of certain "too big to fail" international banking houses. The banks have been playing imaginary money games with us for more than 50 years. The Government has run interference for them because they too benefited from the arrangement. During the Obama terms, they, having escaped punishment for the part excesses, continued to play the risky derivatives games.  Whether by design or unintentionally, this system collapse is inevitable. In 2008, the collapse actually started when Obama became the Democrat nominee. This time the trap is larger and loaded. They will spring it and blame Trump. You might says the threat is "Trumped up". Here is their opportunity to break out of the quagmire and blame someone else. I am not saying that Hillary could avoid it. No one can. The bubble is blown. It will pop. It becomes a question of sooner? Or later? It will only be bigger later. It is probable that the banks will engineer a crash to punish us as they are attempting to do to Britain for Brexxit.  What we do know is the the Mainstream Media will 'blame the innocent' and protect the real criminals who just happen to own them.

3) Immigration. - The last administrations have let a torrent of unvetted, illegal, immigrants into this county with attempt to bring them into mainstream American values. The resulting Balkanization already is destroying the American standard-of-living. Those jobs that have not been shipped overseas have instead been attacked by non-chattel slave wages. The Democrats are using them to block-bust American communities and voting. The RINOs (or Washington-centric Republicans) want them to suppress wages. The only people who do not want them is the Americans who have to live in the lawless mess they create, as illegal is not merely how they get here. It is their way of life. And that is without even considering the unique problems of those of MidEastern descent. The day after a Trump election we can expect the Community Agitators to whip these people into a frenzy replete with violence, and for three month a mad scramble to rush our Southern border ahead of the inauguration.

 4) China - China has been militarizing for a while, accelerating in the last five years undoing the relationship improvements that occurred under Carter, and Reagan and the first Bush. Bill Clinton in return for contributions allowed them both legally and illegally to obtain technology for the aiming and control of Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles. While at the same time, we have been purchasing virtually everything we buy from them with ever more worthless currency. You know how you feel about losing a $20 bill, multiply that be trillions! When the bankers exact their revenge on us for putting Trump in, the least we can expect is for the Chinese to cease selling to us except payable in gold. The most? Armed conflict.

5) Russia. Despite the people's rising up against and stopping President Obama's first attempt to depose Bashar al Assad's Russian supported regime in Syria, we are involved in the war against the Russian supported dictator. The Obama administration has been maneuvering us toward armed conflict with Russia in Syria for some time. They have even been deluging us with propaganda about it. President Obama will have 3 months to saddle the incoming President with a war openly against Russia that could be a one-way street to nuclear war. Obama has nothing to lose.

6) Iran and Saudi Arabia - Obama has been packing our nation deliberately with hundreds of thousands of Muslims who have no plans to assimilate to the American culture and political system. In fact, there continue to be Muslims who randomly commit acts of violence not against those in charge but against ordinary people going about their lives. Trump has promised to do something about that. Their time to take action against us will again be (just like Sept 11, 2001) before the administration has itself in order. Expect violence here also. The barbarians are within our gates.

7) Korea. - a definite wild Card. But not Trump specific, other than just opportunistic exploitation of the other turmoil.


None of this is to say that we would be better off with Hillary, the Queen of All Liars and Swindlers. 
The very most we could get from Hillary is a temporary reprieve during which time the problems grow inexorably larger and more devastating. We can pay the price of the Elite's games now, or later when it is more massive. But pay we will. So when do we pay the piper? 
The very least we will get from Hillary is a Supreme Court that overturns the Constitutional restrictions on Government usurping powers the Government was not supposed to have. There will be tortuously worded decisions that chip away at the Bill of Rights until there are none at all. This effectively makes this election our very last chance to reassert 'We, the People's', dominance over our government.

Our feelings about immigration are greatly colored by where we live. It is easy to see why a person living in Fairbault, Minnesota would not be concerned about immigration, while a person living in Dearborn, Michigan or even Gwinnett County, Georgia might be overwhelmed by it.
Here is a list of Mosques and Masjids in Gwinnett County Georgia.
It does not include those just across the line in Dekalb County even though several of them are literally withing stoning distance of Gwinnett County. Some of them have congregations of hundreds that can be observed milling around their parking lots on Friday afternoons.

Interesting Finds: What's the difference between Narcissism and Solip...

Interesting Finds: What's the difference between Narcissism and Solip...:

What's the difference between Narcissism and Solipsism?

Narcissism is a type of personality disorder. Narcissists not only have a high opinion of themselves, but they have an obsessive need to have other people affirm this superiority, and as a result they engage in a lot of attention-seeking behavior.

Solipsism is a legitimate philosophical position...just not a very popular one. Much like people don't want to admit universal skepticism—the idea that no knowledge of any kind is possible—no one wants to say that he is the only real person in the universe. So it usually regarded as a dead-end that means you have made a mistake somewhere if your argument leads to solipsism.

Nevertheless, solipsism as such says nothing about how you will behave or treat other people. Even if you regard all other people as some sort of illusion or creation of your own mind, you might treat them very nicely. After all, you observe that being nice to these phantoms tends to bring about good results for you. (That is just an example; it's not to say that egoism—the belief that the good is what benefits oneself—must be a consequence of solipsism.)

This is not and never has been a Democracy. We are a Republic. This is a nation built on a contract between the Government and the people. The people that tell us we have elected them violate that contract routinely and more-and-more with impunity. The Democrat and Republican establishments attempts to thwart the voice of the people is just another example of that .
The Founders of this nation feared Democracy, for the will of the people is fickle and unpredictable; but more than that it is arbitrary and without analytical forethought.
You would not play chess with rules subject to the whims of expediency. You would not play Monopoly® with a Banker that cheats. Why do we play real life this way?
Apparently, the American population has been well trained to seek rulers rather than managers. And that desire draws people seeking power and wealth. I have long said that anyone who wants these elected offices should not be trusted with them.

Power and Wealth

In a Capitalist system, the Rich use their wealth to seek power.
 Evidence: Donald Trump.

In a Socialist system, the powerful use their power to become rich.
  Evidence: Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid,  and Nancy Pelosi.

The little Red Hen
Once upon a time, 
an Italian mouse, a Spanish cat, a Greek pig, and a little red German Langshan hen lived 
on an old farm on a flowery hill surrounded by fields of golden wheat. One day, the Little Red Hen found some grains of wheat scattered in the barnyard. "Look, look at what I've found!" she said to the other animals. "Who would like a hot fresh loaf of bread?”
“Oh, I would!” said the mouse.
“Oh, I would!” said el Gato.
“Oh, I would!” said the pig.
And then, they all laid down to take a short siesta only to be awokened by the little red hen who was still very excited about the thought of a hot baked fresh loaf of bread.
“Great!” said the Little Red Hen "Who will help me plant these grains of wheat?"
"Oh no, Not I!" said the mouse, "this is a Saint’s day, Saint Irving, I can’t work on a Saint’s day".
"Oh no, Not I!" said the cat, "Mayor Vitoria in Valencia has declared 2 to 5 p.m. as the official time for the city’s residents to take their afternoon siestas".
"Oh no, Not I!" said the pig, "I’m 52. I’ve retired. Please pass the Ouzo".
"Fine, then I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. She dug some holes and carefully planted each seed. She also placed a wooden stake in the ground with a picture of a loaf of bread attached to each one. The Little Red Hen also knew that the seeds would need water to grow tall and strong and once again ran to the barn yard and asked for help. "Who will help me water these seeds?" asked the Little Red Hen.
"Not I!" said the mouse, "Today is the Feist of Saint Shirley of Padua".
"Not I!" said the cat, "Manaña".
"Not I!" said the pig, "the seeds don't need water, besides, it isn’t environmentally responsible. Global warming or cooling or whatever it is this time. You can't deny that!"
"Then I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. The Little Red Hen watered the soil and waited patiently for the wheat to grow. When the wheat was tall and golden, she knew it was ready to be cut. "Who will help me harvest the wheat?" asked the Little Red Hen.
 "Not I!" said the mouse, "the drivers are on strike and I have to observe their protest".
"Not I!" said the cat, " who simply rolled over and went back to his siesta".
"Not I!" said the pig, “please pass me another Ouzo”.
"Then I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. The Little Red Hen's basket was soon filled with wheat. "Who will help me take the wheat to the mill to be ground into flour?" asked the Little Red Hen.
"Not I!" said the mouse, "I put all my money in the collection plate at Mass".
"Not I!" said the cat, "You are just too bossy".
At this point, The Little Red Hen couldn't even find the pig to ask him.
"Alrighty then, I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. The kind miller had seen all the work she had done so far and gladly ground the wheat into powdery, velvety flour, and didn't even charge her. The Little Red Hen thanked the miller and then carried it home in a rough brown sack. "Who will help me make this flour into bread?" timidly asked the Little Red Hen.

"Not I!" said the mouse, "I must go to the parade honoring the feast of the Immaculate Contraption ".
"Not I!" said the cat, "Es muy caliente".
"Not I!" said the pig, "the banker will probably bring me some more food, he has plenty, I'll just wait".
"Then I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. The Little Red Hen mixed the flour into sticky dough and kneaded it into a smooth loaf. "Who will help me chop some wood, start a fire, and put this bread into the oven to bake?" asked the Little Red Hen.
This time, not the mouse, not the cat, nor the pig even responded. The Little Red Hen saw them huddled together on the other side of the barn yard laughing and pointing in her direction. She thought that yes, maybe they were right. Maybe this whole idea was a bad idea. Perhaps, she should just forget about making a loaf of bread and just go join them and laugh at her idea too.
But, she didn't.
"Then I'll do it myself," said the Little Red Hen. And so she did. Soon the kitchen was filled with the delicious scent of baking bread and the smell drifted across the barn yard. The other animals came to see what was happening and watched as The Little Red Hen took the warm, crusty loaf out of the oven, and set it on the table. She saw the mouse, the cat, and the pig with eyes wide open staring in through the window. "Who will help me eat this fresh, tasty bread?" asked the Little Red Hen.
See all 6 photos

"I will!" said the mouse as he jumped through the window and sat down at the table.
"I will!" said the cat as she jumped through the window and sat down at the table.
"I will!" said the pig as he jumped through the window and sat down at the table.
"Oh no you will NOT!," said the Little Red Hen. "You didn't help me plant it, or water it, or harvest it, or mill it, or bake it. I have invited the miller to come over and help me eat it" And so she and the miller did just that.

At this point. the pig  threw a tantrum and stomped around the barnyard destroying things and overturning the farmer's car.
But here is where the story turns to Fiction
The very next time the Little Red Hen found some grains of wheat, she didn't even have to ask for help. The mouse planted it in the rich, brown soil, the cat watered it carefully every day, and the pig harvested the wheat when it had grown tall and strong. When the dough was baked, together the animals sat down and ate the fresh, warm bread. It was delicious! While they were eating the bread, the other animals listened intently to The Little Red Hen's new idea and looked carefully at her plan. Later that day, they all visited the miller who also became excited about selling their wonderful loaves of bread.
The truth is that next time they did the very same thing but used the power of the press to make the starvation the fault of the little red state hen.

Politicians lie the most to the people who most support them, there being no need to curry favor with their enemies.
