Get Over It.....

A Nation of Fools by Peary Perry

Get Over It……

I have to wonder at some folks who refuse to acknowledge the history of mankind and spend their time upset over past events.

In today’s paper is a letter to the editor from a lady saying that all of the states except the original thirteen colonies should not celebrate the Fourth of July since this holiday isn’t relative to their state. She goes on to say that ‘only through greed, elitism, and racism they (the rest of America) proceeded to violently take the land of others while denying these people their independence and sovereignty.’

In other words none of us in this country have any reason to celebrate our independence since we only obtained our lands in the manner she describes.

What a load of horse hockey.

I would like to point out to this lady, that if we were to adhere to her concept of non-aggression, then I would suggest to you that we (all six billion of us) would be living on top of each other somewhere in Ethiopia or wherever they consider the cradle of civilization began. Probably still in caves or sand dunes or whatever early mankind used for shelters.

Of course she probably thinks that if we did this then all mankind (both men and women) would have co-existed in peace and harmony for thousands of years without any strife or coveting of anyone’s property for any reason. No, I’m certain that in her mind the tribes having the greatest caves and warmest furs would have no reason to fear any type of attack or invasion by those less fortunate. In fact I feel certain this lady would gladly give up her hard fought comforts and improvements to those less fortunate so that they could all live in abject poverty together. Why have space and improvements for your family alone when you could easily share with twenty five others who choose to do nothing on their own and are willing to let you perform all of the work?

Kumbaya for all…..Peace, milk and cookies. Don’t take your guns to town son…leave your guns at home.

I do not know of any segment in the history of mankind where there were not sheep and wolves. The sheep get eaten by the wolves and their lands taken for their own purposes. Obviously I am using this as an example of human nature. The Christians conquered the Muslims, the Muslims conquered the Christians. The Mongols conquered everybody. The Romans conquered nearly everybody. The Spanish came to America. The natives of Mexico killed and maimed each other while fighting over portions of the country. The Native Americans (Indians) fought and conquered each other. The British fought the Colonists. The Germans and the Japanese fought the world. The poor fight the rich, the rich profit from the poor.

I wonder how this woman’s ancestors came to this country. Obviously since she is writing from a city in the southwest part of the United States, she herself must be considered to be a trespasser, an interloper … of those despicable creatures she describes and hates for their ruthless actions engaged in the actions associated with human societies since time began. No, I have to believe that somewhere some part of her heritage engaged in activities of ‘greed, elitism, and racism’.

Are these actions always proper? No, of course not. But they have existed and they continue to exist even in today’s world. This is the nature of both wolves and humans. There are struggles for power, control and dominance taking place all over the globe each and every day.

Would we wish it wasn’t so? Of course, we all would like to live in a peaceful world without the wolves. Will it ever happen? Not in my mind. Do we need to remember past events, certainly we do. Do we need to try and do better than those who didn’t? Of course we do. Do we need to blame all of those around us for events beyond our control or the control of anyone currently alive? I think not.

This lady as well as all of us needs to move forward and make the future a better place for all of us. Those who stand mired in the mud of past events will never be able to step freely into the future.

Spies and Lies!!!!

A Nation of Fools by Peary Perry (

Spies and Lies?

So riddle me this……why the big rush to ‘swap’ 10 Russian spies for one American?

Why are we in such a hurry to ship the ten we have in custody here in this country back to motherland Russia in exchange for one lonely computer engineering type who is (or was) being kept over there?

I mean this has been done in record time. As in less than two weeks from when the news first came out.

This is from the same administration that still cannot allow certain oil skimming resources to be deployed after almost 90 days of the greatest environmental disaster this country has ever seen? The folks in Louisiana must be sending their requests to the wrong department. The State Department and the FBI seem to be the agencies that are getting things done in quick time.

Or are they?

Check out this little piece that appeared in the London ‘Daily News’ on June 30th, just a couple of days after the story was made public:

According to the complaint, filed by Maria Ricci, a special agent with the Counterintelligence arm of the FBI, the spies:
• used advanced steganography software to send encrypted messages to each other by hiding them on publicly available websites.
• used short wave radios and codes to send messages to each other
• used Wi-Fi in cafes and bookshops to covertly communicate with Russian agents parked in a van close by
• used and perfected the 'brush pass', a clandestine way of handing over items as one person passes another, which is known as a 'flash meeting'
• hoarded up to £50,000 in cash in their homes
• wrote messages in invisible ink that they sent to Russian agents in South America
• met an employee of the U.S. government with regards to nuclear weapons research and other high-ranking officials
• tried to get jobs in firms which gave them access to those who knew state secrets
• buried information in the ground which could later be picked up by other agents
• received money from an official associated with the Manhattan-based Permanent Mission to the United States
• used false documents to travel into and out of the United States and
• Took the identities of dead Americans to help them carry out their mission.

I have highlighted two items I find most interesting. You certainly never heard any more about this employee or other high ranking officials of the US government or this official with the United States mission did you? No, I don’t think we did. Yet, here it is spelled out in the complaint from this FBI agent. Who were these people that these spies talked to or met with? Why aren’t we trying to uncover what else is going on in this matter?

You can bet that once the spy swap is completed, as early as today (Thursday 7/8/10) the files will be closed ‘in the interest of national security’….but why?

As they say…there is something rotten in Denmark…..and it looks to me that this whole deal stinks to high heaven. You can bet we will never know or hear anything more about this matter.

Someone, somewhere doesn’t want us to.
