Compromise & Division

In 1938 the UK's Neville Chamberlain (Along with the leaders of other European nations) compromised with Adolf Hitler and gave up a large part of Czechoslovakia (Containing ist best defensive positions) to the Nazis, setting the stage for Hitler's greater aggressions. This compromise came at a horrid cost to the World. At first, Western Europe compromised with Mohammed and Muslims, yielding rape, slavery and perpetual war to civilization. In the 1940s we compromised with Stalin (In part to defeat Hitler, in part due to the influence of left-wingers in the USA and the cancer of "pathological pacifism") at a
greater-than-Nazi cost in suffering to the World.

There are some persons and ideologies for which compromise is not only a beginning greater suffering but is a supporting of what is wrong and inherently evil.

It most strongly appears that too many in the USA are of the opinions that "compromise" requires real republicans to bow down to the misshapen policies of the "other party" and to those in the GOP who do not recognize the evil of what such are and of insisting on a policy of "They Shall Not Pass".

[In the case of the ejection-and-rejection of Senator Lugar: That  represents a democratic choice of the People (Expressed in the secret and sacred confines of the voting booth) and an assertion of the commitment of real Republicans and Patriots to the best principles of our exceptional nation.].

What Divides The People Of The USA

  Too many are confused over the basis of that division. Here, I can help define the nature of many such differences. Many US citizens (And legal immigrants) have finally come to an understanding of the following points as "reliable and valid".
1. There is a difference between good and evil.
2. Compromise with evil is evil in itself .
3. There is a difference between knowledge and ignorance.
4. Compromise with ignorance is ignorant.
5. There is a difference between what can be, on a reliable and valid basis, supported by experimental science and that which cannot be, but is too often claimed as "scientifically proven" < span=""><>.
6. There is a difference between the position that real science must constantly reevaluate its propositions and theories (Not equal to each other) and no scientific proposition (eg
The speed of light' Substantial human causes for climate change) is beyond question.
7. Without regard to its "sometimes" failures the traditional marriage of one man and one women has been clearly demonstrated, by history, as the basic-and-best unit of the nation and of civilization .
8. That spending beyond income will result in the ruination of an individual or family or a corporation or a nation.
9. There are major differences between Islam and the world's monotheistic religions
as make Islam the enemy of both any democracy and civilization .
10. The public acts of Mr. B. H. Obama are contrary to the best interests of the People of the USA .
11. That the original intent of the authors of the Constitution (And its amendments) should be the primary base for any judicial decisions as that basic document has NO provisions for "evolving standards of decency" or other judicial inventions BUT does have a prescribed method of change ,

I could list many more of the like divisions in this nation. It will up to the People (And, hopefully, not life-term Federal judges) , through the democratic election of its representatives, chose which positions will be public policy.

I do not see any openings for compromise on the above and many other subjects as they are too basic to the future of the nation.

Speed Of Light & The "Telepathic Twin" Study

      There is a common Science Fiction theme with two telepathic twins, one staying on the Earth and the other leaving on a space-ship. The result, in those stories, is that one twin aging at a rate much different than the other.
This is a different set of conditions than the usual "clock in orbit" experiment where time-and-space are much more constricted than the SF story. These stories assume that telepathic communications are not limited by the speed-of-light.
      Now, what I have wondered is would a reversal through time-and-space of the traveler reverse the time differential or double it?
       This is speculation. But, are there any relevant experiments (As are "reliable and valid" with a high "level of confidence")?

Constitution, Jefferson & Whaling

Much (Too much and in a  too expansive SCOTUS opinion written by an one-time, active, member of the KKK.) has been made as to President Thomas Jefferson's private letter noting his support of the "separation of church and state". Below is his view, also in a private letter, as to interpreting the Constitution.

"On every question of construction carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates and instead of trying what meaning may be squeezed out of the text or invented against it, conform to to the probable one in which it was passed. "

Please specially note that the term "trying" was used as in "boiling down" something (eg Whale blubber or the Constitution) to obtain what the actors wish (eg Whale oil or perverse decisions by judges "making law from the bench")

Please specially note that Wisconsin's applicable constitutional amendment was subject to repeated votes of our democratically elected legislators and by a direct, democratic and secret vote of the People.

Trading Blacks For Whites

There are some Americans who have suggested that we transfer the USA's "unhappy" Blacks for South African Whites, a move which would tend to increase our schools' test scores, reduce the criminal system's expenses,  Those persons propose that such could be done by: Requiring the out-goers to have an immigration visa from some other nation; Formally renounce US citizenship; Accept some  cash to leave the USA and surrender all constitutional rights if found back in the USA.   White South Africans would be given a reasonable grant to start up life here in a society which could cut back taxes and otherwise provide jobs for them after "The Trade".

For myself, I am very aware of very many Blacks who are superior to myself and most by reason of being fully civilized. These persons are unlikely to wish to leave and would hurt our nation if they did.
