Suggested Answers To The Short Quiz

Post by johnkarls »

.
Question 1

Is the real thesis of “What’s The Matter With White People” instead “What’s The Matter With The Democratic Party” because it has lost touch with blue-collar workers who are white?

Answer 1

So it would appear.

Question 2

Who was Saul Alinsky?

Answer 2

Saul Alinsky (1909-1972) was a famous American socialist who is considered to be the founder of modern community organizing.

Question 3

When President Obama was a Community Organizer, was he working on the payroll of a Saul Alinsky organization?

Answer 3

Yes, President Obama’s entire career as a community organizer was spent with one of Saul Alinsky’s organizations in the inner-city ghettos around America, this one on Chicago’s notorious South Side.

Question 4

Did Hillary Clinton write her Senior Honors Thesis for Wellesley College on Saul Alinsky?

Answer 4

Yes.

Question 5

When Bill Clinton first ran for President, did he famously obtain the agreement of Wellesley College to embargo Hillary’s Senior Honor Thesis so that American voters would not think he was married to a socialist?

Answer 5

Yes.

Question 6

When we focused on Saul Alinsky’s famous book “Rules For Radicals” when Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton were competing for the Democratic Party nomination in 2008, did we learn that Alinsky believed in achieving socialism through the democratic process which resulted in his Cardinal Rule that in order to win elections, socialists must constantly talk about The Middle Class?

Answer 6

Yes.

Question 7

Is that the reason why we constantly hear so much about The Middle Class?

Answer 7

Yes.

Question 8

Did a major component, if not the majority, of The Middle Class used to comprise blue-collar factory workers?

Answer 8

Yes.

Question 9

Have blue-collar factory workers been decimated by America’s policy of exporting American jobs?

Answer 9

Yes.

Question 10

For our 2/14/2008 meeting when we focused on long-time Washington Post Columnist Dana Milbank’s “Homo-Politicus: The Strange And Scary Tribes That Run Our Government” and long-time Business Week Columnist Robert Kuttner’s “The Squandering Of America: How The Failure Of Our Politics Undermines Our Prosperity” -- was the central theme of both books that nothing gets done in the cesspool known as Washington DC except as the result of bribes (aka “campaign contributions”), though quite often the “campaign contributions” take the form of extortion by, rather than bribery of, the pols?

Answer 10

Yes.

Question 11

So despite its rhetoric of supporting The Middle Class and blue-collar workers, hasn’t the Democratic Party been guilty of supporting America’s policy of exporting American jobs in return for “campaign contributions”?

Answer 11

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 12

If anyone thinks for a moment that the Democratic Party would like to rein in the export of American jobs, then why doesn’t it simply renew 1968 Executive Order 11387 as we recommended in our Six-Degrees-Of-Separation E-mail campaign following our 2/12/2014 meeting?

Answer 12

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 13

In addition to supporting America’s policy of exporting American jobs, isn’t the Democratic Party at war with The Middle Class and blue-collar workers with regard to Illegal Immigration?

Answer 13

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 14

As we studied for our 1/10/2008 meeting on Illegal Immigration, isn’t Illegal Immigration nothing more than reversing the outcome of the American Civil War?

Answer 14

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 15

In other words, doesn’t Illegal Immigration comprise the importation of de facto slave labor to take jobs in the U.S. that cannot be exported geographically?

Answer 15

So it would appear.

Question 16

And didn’t we conclude that minimum-wage laws do not apply to most Illegal Immigrants for either (or both) of two reasons: (A) Illegal Immigrants are afraid to complain since that would call attention to their immigration status, and (B) perhaps more importantly, many if not most Illegal Immigrants (particularly in the agricultural sector) are provided with food and lodging and the minimum-wage laws are impotent vis-à-vis what employers can charge for the food and lodging?

Answer 16

Yes.

Question 17

Is America’s immigration system “broken” as our pols love to claim?

Answer 17

Of course not!!!

Question 18

Is the Comprehensive Immigration Reform ("CIR") bill that passed the U.S. Senate in 2013 and that had been spear-headed by the so-called Gang of Eight (four Democrats and four Republicans) simply a carbon-copy of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?

Answer 18

Absolutely!!!

Question 19

In other words, don’t both the 1986 law and the 2013 bill (A) call for securing the border, (B) call for an e-verify system for employers to ascertain quickly the immigration status of a worker, (C) call for stiff fines and jail sentences for employers who hire Illegal Immigrants, and (D) provide a path to citizenship for Illegal Immigrants already present in the United States?

Answer 19

Absolutely!!!

Question 20

So why didn’t Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama enforce the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986?

Answer 20

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 21

Does anyone think it might have something to do with “campaign contributions”?

Answer 21

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 22

And does anyone think that vis-à-vis the two Democratic Presidents on the list, it also has something to do with increasing the number of Democratic-Party voters on the theory that blue-collar workers have nowhere to go?

Answer 22

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

[Though at our 1/10/2008 meeting, we theorized that such an advantage would only be temporary because Latinos are typically devout Roman Catholics and, in many other ways, fit the profile of typical Republicans, for example, in supporting family values.]

Question 23

Is the Democratic Party’s War On Blue-Collar Workers the only problem it faces?

Answer 23

Please read on for another example of how the Democratic Party always seems to try to recruit new groups whose interests are incompatible with the Democratic Party’s existing base, and then hopes that the base won’t realize it’s being screwed and/or won’t have anywhere to go.

Question 24

Who famously called New York City “Hymietown”?

Answer 24

Please see Q&A-25.

Question 25

Did Chicago’s Rev. Jesse Jackson spew his epithet while running for the Democratic Party nomination for President in a January 1984 interview with an African-American reporter for The Washington Post?

Answer 25

Yes.

Question 26

Is “Hymie” a derogatory term for Jew and is NYC famously the largest Jewish city in the world?

Answer 26

Yes, “Hymie” is a derogatory term for Jew.

At the time of Rev. Jesse Jackson’s comment in 1984, the common wisdom was that NYC was the largest Jewish city in the world.

However, it now appears from some quick checking that NYC may now rank second behind Tel Aviv (3.22 million Jews for Tel Aviv and 2.12 million Jews for NYC).

Though it is not clear whether the NYC statistic includes the entire NYC metropolitan area as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Question 27

Although African-American Jesse Jackson later issued a de rigeuer apology, wasn’t there quite a bit written about how his comment rang true with African Americans who believe that American wars are fought disproportionately by African Americans and the wars are fought primarily to advance the interests of Jews?

Answer 27

Yes.

Question 28

Does this rift still persist as Israel feels it has “been thrown under the bus” during the Iran nuclear negotiations just concluded?

Answer 28

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!

Question 29

Incidentally, did two of America’s largest Jewish organizations fail to file Pre-Cert Amicus Curiae Briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court pursuant to its Rule 37(2) in the litigation against 15 of the world’s largest financial institutions for the $84 billion that they owed for conversion (the civil-law counterpart to theft) and that had been long since pledged in legally-binding fashion to rescue 10 million inner-city children “from a fate worse than death” -- to affirm that conversion is not restricted to heirs of Holocaust victims whose fine art was stolen by the Nazis, but even applies to the second-class American citizens living in our inner-city ghettos?

[Hint: Please see the third and fourth sections of http://www.ReadingLiberally-SaltLake.org entitled “Inner-City Holocaust and America’s Apartheid ‘Justice’ System.”]

Answer 29

Gerald S. Cook was the roommate of Yours Truly throughout law school. Jerry was also the Best Man six months following graduation at the wedding of Yours Truly. And Yours Truly served in Jerry’s wedding party a year or two later (Jerry’s brother was his Best Man).

However, Jerry returned to Michigan and became a senior partner in Detroit’s largest Jewish law firm -- Honigman Miller Schwartz & Cohen.

When Mikhail Gorbachev first began permitting Jewish emigration in 1989, Jerry wrote a personal check to charter the first 747 into Moscow to ferry Russian Jews to Israel.

Over the years, Jerry headed the boards of two of the largest Jewish organizations in the U.S.

And over the years, Jerry often requested Yours Truly to write letters to America’s decision makers to champion Israeli causes because, as Jerry liked to claim, America’s decision makers paid more attention to the opinions of Goyim.

Yours Truly had always been happy to comply because the causes, in each instance, were just.

[Please see, for example, all of the massive information contained in the Expired Proposed Topic entitled “The Presbyterian Church Bearing False Witness Against Israel” posted in the second section of http://www.ReadingLiberally-SaltLake.org.]

However, other than asking Jerry to be the Best Man at my wedding in 1967, I had never asked Jerry for a favor until 6/16/2010, the day after filing our first appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

I asked Jerry to contact the two of the largest American Jewish organizations whose boards he had chaired about filing Pre-Cert Amicus Curiae Briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court pursuant to its Rule 37(2) in the litigation against 15 of the world’s largest financial institutions for the $84 billion that they owed for conversion (the civil-law counterpart to theft) and that had long since been pledged in legally-binding fashion to rescue 10 million inner-city children “from a fate worse than death” -- to affirm that conversion is not restricted to heirs of Holocaust victims whose fine art was stolen by the Nazis, but even applies to the second-class American citizens living in our inner-city ghettos.

[Jerry had been quite familiar with the litigation for more than a year.]

Jerry flatly refused to lift a finger to help the 10 million children living in America’s inner-city ghettos to escape “from a fate worse than death.”

Question 30

So warping back to our author, Joan Walsh, and her “What Is Wrong With White People” -- does she provide any reason whatsoever why blue-collar workers should “drink the Kool-Aid” of the Democratic Party that it will finally do anything other than talk, to halt the export of American jobs?

Answer 30

What do you think??? Let’s discuss!!!
