The NBA coach, “Pop’ as he is fondly called, Popovich, of the Spurs has recently made it known he is thinking about running for president in 2020. He cites his main reason is because he is frightened that our country’s values are being destroyed by the Trump presidency.
Personally, old Doc hopes “Pop” will run! It would be nice to see him suffer his worst humiliating defeat…something he knows little about since he has coached the Spurs to many NBA titles.
Pilgrims, DEPLORABLES, and any disaffected Dems that have recently jumped on the Trump-train, in the light of “Pop’s” hubris pronouncement about how America’s values are under stress and in danger of changing via President Trump’s presidency, old Doc would like to take “Pop” down the ‘memory-lane’ of America’s CORE VALUES…that were nearly lost before the DEPLORABLES elected President Trump, and demonstrated just how horrible the loss of our old CORE VALUES have harmed America.
To preface my remarks, I want every reader to understand where my head and my heart lies concerning my unfailing support for America’s Core Values of yesterday verses those of 2018. I also want each reader to know that behind all the changes lay two ‘group-think’ changers: Feminist Theology and Communist Theology, and for old Doc, both nearly destroyed our country and its future greatness until President Trump was elected.
I’m nine years older than ‘Pop” so I have a better ‘first-hand’ knowledge of what America’s core values were before he was born. I will endeavor to accomplish this task using a THEN and NOW scenario formula. This will allow each reader to conduct his or her own evaluation and draw their own conclusions that support old Doc or favor the soon to be announced Presidential candidate for 2020.
THEN; when I was five, nearly seventy percent of families attended worship regularly, and they professed a belief in the Bible and Jesus Christ.
NOW: forty-six percent of families attend worship regularly, and a third of them don’t believe the Bible is always true, and Jesus Christ was a good man more than a Savior. This means fifty-six percent of America’s citizens are heathens and don’t believe in a biblical God; they don’t believe in any god.
THEN: Marriage was a sacrosanct covenant between a man and a woman…ordained by our Creator. Homosexuals were a peripheral matter and mainly remained ‘in the closet. The idea that America’s Supreme Court, without the will of the people, would condone and even promote Same Sex Marriage was considered immoral and unthinkable. It was against every moral principle the citizens of this nation used to navigate life…regardless of race, religion, or color of skin.
NOW: It seems the only people who want to get married are religious people and homosexuals. Same Sex Marriage has replaced biblical marriage with sexual unions found in the Bible from the days of Sodom and Gomorrah. The sexual identity people have now added a new plank to their odious sinful hate the Bible agenda: the IT WORLD. Regardless if one has a ‘sex change’, they can choose to be Susie one day and John the next, and they want to punish any normal American citizens if they dare disagree with their sick twisted minds. What they cannot win via Congress or the ballot box, they have bullied our nation into submission via our corrupt legal system that continues to discover legal pearls that don’t exist in our Constitution.
THEN: America’s education system sometimes used the Bible for classroom assignments. School days commenced with reading of scripture and prayer, plus the pledge to the nation’s flag. Christmas and Easter were celebrated as times of worship and holy reverence by our schools. The nations’ school children prepared Christmas programs that were designed to focus America’s attention upon Jesus Christ’ birth and his resurrection, and students’ parents enjoyed their programs. Teachers’ were held to a biblical moral code of ethics protected by school authorities.
NOW: The Bible is forbidden to be read in classrooms, and Muslim religion tenets are more apt to be discussed than the Bible’s. Prayer has been restricted to ‘student initiated’ prayers. The pledge is often not used to start the school day. Teachers and staff can be fired for leading students in prayer. A Biblical moral code of ethics has been removed and replaced by a Feminist Theology one. Now there is Sexting by students and teachers!
THEN: Eighty percent of students graduated from high school. The diploma equipped the student to work in the business world. Since a small percentage of students earned a college degree, few high school students graduated as functional illiterates.
NOW: Sixty-five percent graduate from high school. Because of a Socialist/Communist bent indoctrinating the students, few are equipped for the business world. Because the Feminist agenda has been implemented into the schools, processed by authorities and staff, promoting ‘self-esteem’; rather than merit based education, the students aren’t equipped to accomplish great things. They see themselves as victims oppressed by people who have become successful. The average graduate couldn’t pass the exam of a 1950s’ junior high grad. These students know more about the Feminist movement than the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Average high school graduates that work in a Walmart, if the computer goes down, can’t make simple change without taking off their shoes. The average college graduate couldn’t pass a high school exam from the 1950s. A third of today’s students leave with a diploma that should be marked: “Functional Illiterate”.
From Old Doc’s personal experience teaching and even substituting in schools during the late seventies and early eighties, while in grad school, a third of all faculties should be fired for malfeasance upon unsuspecting students, a third should be remanded to remedial learning, and a third should have their salaries increased three-fold. In 2018, the percentages should be raised in every category.
THEN: America was a horribly racist, bigoted country! Unfortunately for black America and our entire country, the Socialist/Communist agenda was used as the elixir to fix this sin. Misplaced compassion verses merit application was applied by our government and education authorities White/black privilege formulas by liberal and mushy-headed conservative leaders, practicing the worst type of racist bigotry: their single conclusion for the nation was the black student was too dumb to learn or too weak to compete if it demanded discipline, self-sacrifice, and great effort to achieve excellence, so money was deemed the only answer to solve the inequality problem that existed since the days of slavery and the Civil War. Despite Affirmative Action, evidently, too many in black societies still are caught in a paradox that left them feeling like they were still on the outside looking in.
Our mutton-headed congressional leaders, out of misplaced compassion, again tried to fix the black society’s problem with money as they funded, to the tune of trillions of dollars, a Generational Welfare System that robbed its people of experiencing the joy of knowing how great it feels to earn your success via your self-sacrifice and personal discipline, rather than depend upon the government’s misplaced compassion for choices that brought horrible outcomes that harm them and all in their family and their society. Before the government’s educational ‘social pass’ education and paying unmarried women to have illegitimate children with tax payers money that created a Government Slave Plantation system, the Black family was more intact than the white family.
NOW: It seems the only racist and bigots in our country are people of color. Instead of being grateful they live in a country where they can achieve what they are willing to determine, they are ready to play the ‘race-card’ and cry I’m a victim…of you name the issue…and their legions are growing stronger and larger year by year.
THEN: A small percentage of people of color were incarcerated. Black crime wasn’t something black society worried about. The idea of black people committing horrendous crimes against other black people wasn’t a serious concern for the average person of color, and certainly not white people.
NOW: America has a hard time building prisons fast enough to hold the criminals that prey upon the citizens of our nation. Though these animals kill, torture, maim, murder, rob and steal from their own people, it is the cops that are the ‘bad guys’ according to social black activists, NFL, and the Democrat Party…and all the Socialist/Communist haters in America.
A hate mongering political anti-police group of people, masquerading as victims of Social Injustice: BLM (black live matter) advocates the murder of cops; and the Democrat Party not only condones it, they support its political garbage. The NFL also lends it support for this evil organization, unwittingly, perhaps, as they cow-tow to their disgruntled black players view of disrespecting our flag, Anthem, dead warriors, and our country for personal grievances, that have filtered from their personal run-ins with the law as they fought their way out of drug infested gang related atmospheres to find success and fame, but earlier in their lives, they were more the problem than the solution to the black ‘killing fields’ that exist in our major cities in America.
Their ludicrous thinking is akin to finding yourself in a war and your forces are continually being killed by ‘Friendly-fire’, but you only concentrate upon the named enemy outside the foxhole: cops of all colors sacrificing their lives to keep your law abiding black people safe from the thugs: eighty percent of all crime comes from their own colored people in their neighborhoods.
THEN: America was a place where immigrants came to chase freedom and success. The country welcomed them, but, they didn’t expect tax payers to provide for them: clothe, educate, and pay for health care, or collect welfare and other types of aid. They didn’t demand their culture and language be honored and assimilated into America’s. They wanted to be American citizens…not a citizen enjoying the blessing of our country, but maintaining their allegiance to the one that left. All immigrants were means tested. You had to prove you were skilled, had a job, or another American family would vouched for you and provide for you.
NOW: Immigrants come to America…too many of them illegally. Once here, they demand that our country give them womb to tomb care. They expect to receive welfare and other types of aid from the tax payers. They don’t care to assimilate and they want to keep their cultures alive and public. They want to fly their old country’s flag, protest and march in our streets if they aren’t provided what they desire. They have dumbed down our education system to the point English is a ‘second’ language in many parts of our nation. Half of the illegal immigrants don’t have a grade school education, and they can’t compete for jobs that pay well.
We have socialist/Communist political leaders who are hell-bent to change America into a Communist type of country, and they want all illegals to come to America so one day they can be eligible to vote for this type of miscreant citizen and government.
THEN: Under FDR’s leadership, the idea of Socialism was introduced to ostensibly find a way to survive the Great Depression. The government’s Alphabet Soup was implemented to provide jobs for boys and men to build and care for things our government deemed worthy of tax payers dollars. It clashed greatly with our system of Capitalism, but the outcomes were ignored. The idea of an economic system didn’t save America! When America declared war on Japan and Germany, this business juggernaut providing war supplies, changed America’s economic formula away from a Socialist model to a Capitalist one…again.
NOW: A bastardized form of Socialism was reintroduced by the Democrats and President Johnson in the sixties as America faced its demons with working to correct the racist and bigotry towards black people with the passing of the Civil Rights Law. Unfortunately, for black society, white people, suffering from the guilt of the residue from that war chose to use money that was a ‘hand out’ rather than a ‘hand-up’ and it guaranteed welfare would ruin personal incentives to challenge black people to find success rather than remain a victim of unfortunate circumstances when their kin were bought and sold from black African Kings to white slave traders and shipped to America. Today, we have millions of people, of all colors living off the taxpayers’ dime. It has become so bad, most of America’s children eat two free meals a day at school; and the stigma of living off welfare has been removed to the point our stupid government and education systems provide free lunches for every kid so none will be embarrassed.
Our Communist education system is graduating students that reject the Constitution in favor of any Communist type of legal and economic system. The latest group of dolts (Millennials) is the most dangerous of the new breed of American that will one day turn America into a Third World Country: Doc’s prediction. Forty years from now most of the Constitutional biblical people of this generation will be dead, and Mao will be praised and promoted by our country’s leading citizens. Perhaps, there will be new education bumper stickers: If you are a Communist, thank a teacher.
As the reader can surmise, Pop’s world and old Doc’s is quite different. His is void of any biblical principles. He supports any and all political identity platforms that demean mankind’s spiritual survival or personal relationship with the Creator of this universe. It is quite odd that a famous coach would present this flawed view of America, and he supports all manner of Socialist group-think when his very livelihood demands a strict Capitalist form of life. His life is based solely on merit, rather than any Socialist/progressive ideology that rewards sloth and stupid decisions about one’s life. In the NBA, excellence is the only survival of ‘cut-throat’ competition between various levels of talent. Those who can’t and don’t produce are out in the cold. Too bad he doesn’t apply the same formula to the ever increasing Socialist/Communist Democrat Party conundrum that is doing all it can to turn America into a place of godless, immoral Atheist citizens that reward people who can’t use common sense and expect the government to provide them womb to the tomb care.
Old Doc ponders whether men like Pop recognize that if he is in for a penny he is in for dollar. If you tie your horse to the wagon of the far-left, you stand for and support the following items:
- You favor a Socialist/Communist form of government rather than our Constitution.
- You support racist hate groups: Black Lives Matter, who hate our cops and promote the murder of them: over a hundred cops were murdered in the line of duty in 2017.
- You reject the bible and its principles; but, support Atheist Theology.
- You support a welfare state rather than a merit based society.
- You support the killing of innocent babies before they are born, but you won’t support Capital punishment.
- You are pleased that biblical moral values aren’t part of our education system, and you are unable to recognize cause and effect outcomes of how different, morally our country has become since the Bible, prayer, and moral codes have been restricted from our school house doors, our government and courts.
- You praise and welcome the IT WORLD of gender identity that allows parents to objectify CHILD ABUSE upon innocent children.
- You openly root for America to fail…regardless of the category one might choose.
- You aren’t a patriot because you don’t revere our flag, our Anthem, and the warriors who died to allow you the freedom to rant and rave about how horrible sixty plus million fellow citizens are in your eyes.
- You support the now named terrorist group: Antifa, that burns down buildings, and uses violence to cease free speech for any group they deem a threat to their ‘group-think’ ideology.
Pop and his minions know one thing for sure: his ilk is all going to die…no one gets out alive! For sure he is going to reap what he sows:
The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, and their ways are vile; there is no one who does good.
God looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God.
Everyone has turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one.
Do all these evildoers know nothing? Psalm 53:1-4
As old Doc has said a million times, I’ll take THEN rather than NOW! One day, if historians are honest, they will write that America took the first step into oblivion in 1960. Look it up!
Pilgrims and Deplorables old Doc knows one thing for sure: Pop and his merry band of loonies will one day be accountable for the answer to the question: Who do people say I am? Jesus asked his disciples this question. There are three answers: LIAR, LUNATIC…OR LORD.
