We say Athens was the first democracy.
But, a few years before the centennial
of that government, an Athenian court convicted Socrates of discordance
with the city’s religion and sentenced him to suicide, and only
“citizens” of Athens could vote there then.
A few years before the bicentennial of
that “democracy,” a census counted 21,000 citizens, 10,000 foreign
residents, and 400,000 others.
The 400,000 others were women and
children and slaves.
Athens was about as democratic as
The Torah says that, in the five generations
from Israel to Moses, the descendants of Israel grew to outnumber Athens
in the time of Plato.
And it says that their government was a
theocracy of male judges and that they enslaved each other besides
people they captured in battle.
And it says that all “strangers among
them” were subject to them.
And both they and the “modern” nation of Israel

Let’s compare the two oldest living former
Presidents of the United States.
Carter is a Baptist while Bush is a
Presbyterian, and pundits have accused both of being “Anti-Semitic,” and
we the people reelected neither.
Carter wrote a book accurately
comparing how Israelis treat Palestinians to how the South African
government treated Africans, and Bush’s father had banking relationships
with Germany, during World War II.
But other pundits say the reason Carter and
Bush were one-term Presidents is that the United States’ economy sunk at
the end of their terms.
Carter was up against OPEC’s initial
inflation and the unemployment rate increase that arose from returning
Vietnam veterans and the women’s rights movement.
And Bush was up against the instability
that followed his winning the Cold War.
Either way, we the people undervalue both
Carter and Bush, by ignoring facts.
And we’re doing the same to Obama, by
swallowing hogwash from Strom Thurmond Republicans and William Jefferson
Davis Clinton Democrats, which we receive by way of their mass media
propaganda machines Fox News and MSNBC.
But Carter fired Bush.

A CNN reporter said that “three Americans and
a Brit” stopped the guy with the pistol and the AK47 on the train in
France, and a CNN anchor asked what precautions we the people of the
United States should take, while traveling in “these foreign countries.”
That diction, like Uncle Tom Lemon
labeling African American protesters “black lives matter people,” is
among many indications of the bigotry of CNN’s editorial stance.
And, meanwhile, we the people say that “a
British accent” makes people sound more “intelligent” than people who
speak as do we the people of the United States.

Fox News is the main mass media propaganda
machine for Strom Thurmond Democrats calling themselves Republicans.
They’re racists disagreeing with the
party of Jefferson Davis since Camelot Kennedy gave lip service to civil
rights for votes.
But, while they hate African Americans
and Hispanic Americans, they promote the Hebraic American minority
partly by calling Yahoo Netanyahu Bibi and Kosher Kurtz Howie.
And MSNBC is the main mass media propaganda
machine for the William Jefferson Davis Clinton hypocrite party and also
calls Netanyahu Bibi.
Of course the reason for all that is
that the tiny Hebraic minority controls a majority of media and
financial companies in the United States.

According to scripture Hinduism is both more
monistic and more monotheistic than Judaism.
Hindus scripture treats everything from

Judaic scripture doesn’t say that the
god of Abraham is the only god but only that we shouldn’t take any of
the other gods before the jealous vindictive god of Abraham.

Within his dingy donging is his promise
that he’ll ignore the Constitution of the United States to evict from
the United States people whose birth was in the United States from
parents who violated United States immigration law to be in the United

Of course the answer to my question is
that pundits we call anchors and call legislators know that few voters
have read the Constitution, whether or not they call themselves patriots
as people call themselves Christians, while ignoring the Bible.
But, similarly, we the people call such
behavior our manifest destiny.

A Republican Senator, pointing out that Ronald
Reagan said the eleventh commandment was for Republicans not to speak
against one another, said he was referring both to Trump tirades and to
Republican tirades against Trump.
Fact is that the reason more than a
dozen people are calling themselves Republican candidates for the
Presidency is that the Republican Party has disintegrated into
Trump and the “tea party” and the
“evangelicals” are subordinating the laissez-fair ideals of what was the
party of Lincoln to their private interests opposing those ideals.
Of the current gaggle of “republican”
candidates, only Jeb Bush shows calm and apparently sincere accordance
with the fairness and balance Fox News claims, and Fox News employs
pundits ranting as randomly as Trump.
The strongest chance the Republican
Party has of refraining from repeating the debacle of Random Romney is
to nominate Bush with Condoleezza Rice as his running mate.
But it must ask her.
She was a Democrat before she was a
Republican, and that indicates the nonpartisanship we the people are
currently idealizing, and she proved her ability to work with people as
reasonable as the first President Bush and as unreasonable as Cheney.
