*** begin quote ***

A Yankee is a peculiar type of American that was born and bred in New England in the 17th century but that eventually found his way into virtually every part of the United States, and like a horde of locusts, he plunders and consumes everything he deems unholy.

The Yankee is always concerned that someone, somewhere is doing something he doesn’t like and it is his goal to ensure that stops.

This originated in Puritan theology and has been secularized in the modern age. That is why I have termed the new left the “political puritans.”

*** end quote ***

Yup, it certainly seems that no one can MYOB.  

FMPOV, I don’t want my face rubbed in whatever you’re doing.  If I don’t feel that whatever you’re doing will impact my life, I really don’t care.  And most of all I don’t want to pay for whatever you’re doing. Hence why I really don’t like politicians and bureaucrats.

I guess I’m not a “Yankee” or a “Karen”. 

Live and let live.  MYOB.  AND, most of all, blessed are the Peacemakers. 



Podcast Episode 224: The Constitution and Executive Power | Brion McClanahan Author & Historian

A leftist professor wants to limit executive power. This should not be news in the Age of Trump. Every leftist wants to do that, but this leftist might be slightly different. Professor Julia Azari wrote a piece for Vox arguing that the Constitution doesn’t do enough to limit executive power and suggests amending it to do so.

We need to reign in the Executive.  The problem is NOT BHO44 or DJT45.  The DOWG weren’t perfect and they didn’t do enough to prevent the President from becoming a King. Or worse, a Deity.

I think of how some of my Depression Era relatives “worshiped” FDR and the fights when certain uncles who were war vets pointed out his flaws (i.e., women), claims that just weren’t true (i.e., he saved us from the Depression), and “conspiracy theories” (i.e., he caused Pearl Harbor; he led us into war; he was a socialist that gave away the world at Yalta).

Maybe that where I get my “suspicion” that ALL the Conspiracy Theories have a grain of truth at the core AND SOME even are true!
