(Or, bean-body theory explained.)

 

When I was in college, and well before marijuana was as refined as it is today, there was a curious theory called bean-body theory.

 

Hang with me here.

 

In evolutionary theory there was an old saying that “Ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny.” What that means is that during gestation, a human fetus takes on the characteristics of our evolutionary past. (Gill slits and webbed feet.)

 

Bean-body theory takes this one step further by saying that Phylogeny recapitulates Ontogeny. In other words, as we age, our bodies begin to resemble beans. Therefore, we must have all evolved FROM beans.

 

My take on this is that the legalization of marijuana will bring back ideas like bean-body theory, and in fact this is already occurring with theories like Global Climate Change, Gender Fluidity, Vegan diets and IQ testing.

 

 

Imagine for a moment that you’re at a friend’s house and you’re halfway through a monster doobie of Northern Californian and a glass of Napa Valley merlot and your friend explains bean body theory while showing you a picture of say… Hillary Clinton or the women on The View.

 

You’d be like… “Yea, man, I see it!”

 

People who think bean-body theory is outlandish have obviously never set foot on a college campus. I recall once having to walk past the Pugil Stick line, as I call it, outside Harvard University. It’s a series of stands filled with activists. In one was a Haaavad  professor who stopped me.

 

Professor: “Excuse me, can I ask you a question?”

Me: “Why not?”

Professor: “What do you think of the quality of education at that school,” he said, pointing to the Cambridge Rindge and Latin school, a high school that borders the campus.

Me: “I don’t know anything about it. My kids didn’t go there.”

Professor: “Well. If they did go there, what would you have thought of the quality of their education?”

 

I’m NOT making this up. This guy had a PHD and taught at Harvard! (And looked just like Robert Redford, with that look of elite arrogance and snobbish self-assurance.) In this backdrop, asking the opinion of someone who admits knowing NOTHING about the topic, just how loony does bean-body theory sound?

 

 

For the record, there hasn’t been a single idea, including the Paris accord that would measurably reduce CO2 emissions. There is no evidence that genders are fluid and most doctors consider raising a child on a vegan diet to be child abuse and the parents should lose custody. A lawyer for an environmental group once said on CNN “Our clients have a right to their opinion regardless of how factual it is.”

 

If you take in totality the legalization of pot, liberal arts education, the lack of even a rudimentary understanding of biology, evolution or logic along with this new “Harry Potter as literature” mantra in schools, not only could bean-body theory be feasible, but a whole slew of moronic, idiotic, overly simplistic, bone-headed ideas will become main stream.

 

Personally, I can’t wait. I love bean-body theory.

 

Does the left want to exterminate 65 million Christians?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Theresa May’s biggest mistake was inviting Trump to England.

 

Want to hear a dirty little secret? The British hate Americans.

 

They look down their nose at everybody but save their hatred for Americans, and Donald Trump’s visit will expose that.

 

Every nation’s cohesiveness is based on their ability to create a mythology. Few historical leaders are as they become after the die. Kennedy was a worthless drunk. Most of the American founding fathers were land speculators. Men joined the army during the revolutionary war because they were promised two meals a day. Contrary to myth, the US was not taxed heavily by the British. The colonies were a tax heaven. There was no “freedom of religion.” It was illegal to be a Catholic.

 

British mythology revolves around their belief that the British empire was like Rome and it was powerful because of the intelligence and resilience of the people. It’s utter horseshit.

 

The British “empire” was a banking empire based on the idea that everything in England was subservient to the value of the pound. During large parts of their history, their glory years were times of misery for their people. If you’ve ever read Great Expectations or Little Dorrit, you get an inside look at the non-mythical “empire.” During a time Keynes called the peak of British power, 12 million people left the island. In 1900, 90% of all British land was owned by 400 men.

 

Contrary to the tales of inspector Morse, the communist party was extremely popular among the British, especially lesser royals that did not inherit property.

 

My point is, England needs the USA and Trumps visit and the protests that come with it will show the “deplorables” in America just how much the British hate the USA.

 

If the British leave the EU and there’s a rift between the US and England, the UK is finished. Their existence is based on the fact that the US will back their claims militarily. This is why Tony Blair agreed to send troops to Iraq and Afghanistan. Without the US, the British navy is a bunch of fishing boats.

 

The larger problem with England is Russia. Germany doesn’t need England, but you can bet your ass they need Russia and Russia needs them. Germany has no energy sources and a huge, highly technical manufacturing base. They also have no army or navy. Russia has an enormous energy industry and a highly intelligent population but can’t manufacture fly swatters. And Russians can fight like the devil.

 

Had Hitler not launched operation Barbarossa against Russia, England today would be ruled by Germans much as it was for centuries. England, to use the words of Fernand Braudel, became an island when they relinquished Normandy under Elizabeth 1st. For three centuries their banks ran world trade and their royals lived like… well, royals.

 

Those days are over. The British have neither the people nor the resources to be an Island again. They can’t do small. If they decide as a nation that they don’t want the US President in their country, they’re fucked. It’s the deplorables that join the Army. Americans will be very hard pressed to bail out the British in a war. Even in the tiny Falklands war, British officers have conceded that without Ronald Reagan, the Brits would have lost.

 

If they’re not able to defend a rock against Argentina, how can they defend the strait of Hormuz, the North Sea or the Suez Canal?  

 

May’s mistake was her arrogance. Under normal times, the Queen would have fixed this.

 

Most people, including many Brits do not realize what a truly great woman Elizabeth was. She was the greatest leader of the twentieth century. She was the glue that held the country together but more importantly, she was as powerful as a bear and as graceful as a swan. She patched over long held international grievances, smoothed over political differences, covered for England’s army of arrogant, witless leaders and showered the country in foreign business contracts.

 

But the queen is old and feeble, and her heir is a worthless petunia planting fucktard. Honestly, as an emissary, the UK would be better of sending a red nosed Irish Pub owner to commonwealth countries than Charles. Of the Queens two grandsons, one is as silent as a lamb and the other wouldn’t invite the American president to his wedding.  

 

And make no mistake, millions, perhaps tens of millions of “deplorables” see the connection between MI6 and the attempted overthrow of Donald Trump and this leads straight to Theresa May.

 

England is rudderless, leaderless, weak and vulnerable. Frankly, Theresa May couldn’t leave fast enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday, with little fanfare, one of the greatest writers in history, Herman Wouk, died at the age of 103. With him, a little piece of America died.

 

Wouk’s parents, like many Jews, emigrated from Russia to the USA in the early 1900’s. They battled abject poverty as well as racism and grew to love America, a country that, in its own way, hated them.

 

I first read Wouk’s “War and Remembrance,” on an oil rig in the Persian Gulf. My crew was on standby offshore and I laid in bed listening to the rig engines grind on as the rough necks “tripped pipe.” When the engines stopped, we’d go to work. I recall hoping that they’d stay on until I finished reading. The book, which was really a series of stories, mesmerized me.

 

That book is what created my passion for travel and adventure, but that’s not what drove Wouk. A combat veteran of WW2, Wouk was a Hasidic Jew, who spent countless hours studying the Talmud. That discipline can be best explained in the words of my old friend Bob Kurshner.

 

“Paul. You Catholics are stupid. You tell your smartest people, your priests, that they can’t have children. Imagine your father is a Rabbi. He’s your role model. He comes home every night and spends five hours studying the Talmud.”

 

Many, if not most of the Jews emigrating to the US came from Russia, Germany and Austria, as well as a spattering of Eastern European countries. Along with them came a veritable army of Germans. Contrary to what leftist babble on about, these were the men that built America.

 

And, America did NOT welcome them in the least. The KKK signs of that time said,

 

“No niggers”

“No Jews”

“No Catholics”

 

Hardly a welcome mat.

 

A good example is Henry Lehman, one of the fathers of what we lazily call our “market economy.” Lehman created, with his brother Mayer, New York’s cotton exchange and eventually, a company that was the mother of the US markets.

 

Unless you know Jews or Germans personally, you can’t imagine how hard these people work. Along with crushing hours and steel willed discipline, they have an uncompromising toughness. They ran their companies in places where they were not welcome, with governments controlled by people discriminated against them, and prospered.

 

This is why the left hates them so much. They can’t compete.

 

Throughout history, conquering armies destroyed the cultures of those they defeated. Most recently, it was the Taliban that has destroyed most of the holy sites in Afghanistan. If the Muslims retake Jerusalem, they’ll reduce it to rubble. In fact, they state this publicly as their goal. By doing this, they can create a new narrative and a new history.

 

The history of empires is that they are built by great men and willed to their worthless children who piss away their inheritance. The history of Judaism is that they do not allow their children to become worthless. Their almost maniacal dedication to education and family as fierce discipline are the keys to their survival.

 

To the end of his days, Herman Wouk was a Hasidic Jew. He never wavered. It was that discipline that gave him the will and power to dedicated tens of thousands of hours to The Winds of War, and its sequel, War and Remembrance.

 

When I was in the 8th grade, my English teacher, Mr. West, a brutal man trained as a Jesuit decided I wasn’t competent at reading aloud in front of people. He made me read the great Longfellow epic, “Evangeline,” every day in class. In the middle of the winter, I’d stand there with the windows wide open, freezing my ass off, reading that poem. I hated it.

 

In 9th grade, my math teacher, Mrs. Shay, would assign mountains of algebra homework. It was brutal. We thought the woman was a masochist. I can to this day see the woman pounding her finger on her book saying, “You must read and study this book every night!” 3/4ths of her students got 100 percent on the Regents exam. Yet she failed my friend Judy, a girl who got a 100% for not turning in all her homework.

 

What they called discipline today’s “edutainment” teachers would call child abuse. Educators present information as if it’s a bag of skittles. They dance around like idiots convinced that they have to make edutainment “interesting” to inspire the lazy, cellphone addicted mall rats that sleepily stagger into their classrooms.

 

One of the greatest books ever written, “Gone with the Wind”, is being forbidden in America’s schools. I must have read it ten times. The book is amazing. It’s being replaced with an idiotic series of books featuring kids in a witchcraft school that fly around on broomsticks. The books have a plot so simple, a 4th grader could have written them.

In 70 years, “Gone with the Wind” sold 30 million copies, yet it took 5 years to sell 53 million copies of “50 Shades of Gray,” a psycho-porn novel whose only real purpose is as a masturbation aid for middle aged women. These same women are now launching the #Metoo movement, complaining about sexual discrimination!

 

I’d say God help us, but that would be blasphemous. God should NOT help people who act like this. People who abandon God, should not ask for favors.

 

Soros, a profoundly evil man, has stated publicly that he hates America, a country that gave him citizenship and protection.

 

He has used his billions to crush Christian American culture, though it’s hard to argue that we needed his help.  Here in New York, the massive stone cathedrals built by our ancestors are being used as rap studios, flea markets and converted dental offices.

 

What child going to a public school today would use Henry Lehman as a role model? Lehman would be banned from schools as a man whose family owned a slave, was an ardent capitalist and an unapologetic Jew. Three strikes and you’re out.  Shouldn’t a Lehman protégé’ create a country, Palestine, as a rich, democracy and hand it over, lock, stock and barrel, to people who vow to exterminate them from the face of the earth?

 

How many would choose Wouk, a man who, with his wife, sacrificed for years to create great historical novels and dedicate them to the glory of God?

 

Too few.

 

Does the left want to exterminate 65 million Christians?
