When the clocks strike 13

Grumpy Opinions by Tabitha Korol

“It was a cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”  Thus began George Orwell’s prophetic novel, 1984, written forty years earlier, preparing the reader for a dystopian future under socialism – a society of great suffering and injustice, and bereft of reason.  This symbol of the thirteenth stroke brings into question what transpired through all the previous twelve hours, when inhumanity triumphed over our society, destroying our time and history itself.  

In Orwell’s tale, words were constantly being removed from the language and history repeatedly revised so that the citizens could no longer formulate thoughts.  The character, Winston Smith, explains, “He who controls the past, controls the future.  He who controls the present controls the past.”   We live in similar times, perhaps not as dramatically, but certainly equally disturbing.   We are witness to ongoing destruction of our vocabulary, disintegration of the family unit, isolation and disorientation of the individual, demolition of historic monuments, whitewashed history, and a tampering of time, all combining to extinguish and remake our society.  The focus of this diminished schooling and re-education is our young.         

“British schools are removing analog clocks from exam halls because kids can’t read them,” reported Paul Bois, in the Daily Wire, April 2, 2019, with the subheading, “Many educators are phasing out analog clocks…”  Rather than teach the kids to read the time, the educators are removing the clocks; this is happening in the US, as well.  An emailed message from a teacher in the US read, “I get fifth graders asking me what time it is; there are two clocks in my classroom.”  Where are the parents? And why can’t this teacher with two clocks set aside five minutes a day to teach what should have been taught in Kindergarten?      

Studies have shown that being able to tell time on an analog clock is good for the brain and the mind.  It enhances the children’s cognitive and creative skills and helps them to visualize and learn time management – to understand the passage of time and how much time is left to complete a task.  It boosts their abilities to solve complex mathematical manipulations, with increments and fractions comparable to similar concepts in other activities – even to grasp and learn map direction.  Of course, the academics and psychologists are aware, yet the regression continues as we move closer to thirteen o’clock.   

Another methodical and consistent destruction to our children’s conceptualization, creativity, and ability to work through and solve problems is the removal of cursive writing from the curriculum.  Suzanne Baruch Asherson, occupational therapist, wrote in the New York Times (April 13, 2013), “Putting pen to paper stimulates the brain like nothing else.”  It stimulates brain synapses and synchronicity between the left and right hemispheres, leading to increased comprehension, expression, critical thinking, working memory, and higher SAT scores – skills not achieved from printing and typing[…]

The Promise of Socialism in a Single Song

This says it all.

We’ve been blessed to be able to watch this promise proved before jumping in head first

I have no doubt that Democratic Socialism, when it emerged as the dominant political arrangement in Europe following World War II. It was a slow process, but in 1993 the pact was inked, and now has grown to 28 decreasingly independent states, and 513 decreasingly free people.

They were forewarned.

Modern and urbane, all the Europeans’ socialist plans nevertheless failed, each country at its own pace, to be propped up by introducing hundreds of thousands of immigrants for purposes I’m still not quite sure. All we know is that they can’t let their people, or their domains and return to self-determination.

So now, as predicted, they must begin to consider the darker side of their elusive lover and the role extraordinary cruelty will have to play in holding onto power once all its other now that those schemes have failed. For they will not let go.

There are all sorts of natural laws involved in branding and selling socialism, even if well-intentioned instead of knowing lies.

“The Snake” says it all.

URGENT BLAST ALERT against South Carolina H 3166 (Term Limits) & more — Hearing Tuesday (4/30/2019)!


, , , , , , , ,

The following applications for an Article V convention (A5C) have been pending in the South Carolina House Judiciary Committee since early January.  A hearing is scheduled for the Term Limits application on Tuesday:

H 3166 (Term Limits) – [highlight]Hearing Tuesday 4/30/19 @ 2:30 pm Eastern. [/highlight]

H 3125 (COSP) – Hearing not yet scheduled

H 3017 (BBA) – Hearing not yet scheduled

Attached is our State flyer which explains the dangers of an A5C.

HERE are words from brilliant men who warned against an A5C.

Most legislators vote based on the subject of the application (such as congressional term limits).  [highlight] But the subject is just window-dressing to help “sell” the legislators on the application.  In fact, an A5C can’t be limited to the subject of the application. [/highlight]

Nevertheless, the bottom line is that we need Senators to vote “No!” on H 3166 using any arguments we can.  So, please choose a short argument or two against term limits to throw in with your general objection to an Article V convention.  Term limits is a horrible idea, and there are plenty of arguments to choose from.  See attached or HERE.

In this excellent VIDEO (4:23 – 9:22) Robert Brown shows the absurdity of a term limits amendment when he explains why it should be called the “Lame Duck Amendment.”


This ARTICLE is good for showing Democrats why they need to oppose all A5C resolutions.

Please back up our ground team and write to House Speaker Jay Lucas, Chairman Peter McCoy, and the remaining 120 SC House members.  The same letter will do for all with different “asks”:

First, write Republican [highlight]Committee Chair Peter McCoy[/highlight], and ask him to hold H 3166, H 3125, H 3017, and all Article V convention applications in committee without taking a vote: Dear Representative McCoy: PeterMcCoy@schouse.gov.

Next, write Republican [highlight]House Speaker Jay Lucas [/highlight], and ask him to prevent H 3166, H 3125, H 3017, and all Article V convention applications from going to the House floor, should they get out of committee.  Dear Speaker Lucas: JayLucas@schouse.gov,

[highlight]Then write the remaining 120 South Carolina House Members[/highlight] and ask them to VOTE “No!” on H 3166, H 3125, H 3017, and all applications from South Carolina asking Congress to call an Article V convention:
