An Exercise In Ethics – LET TRUMP BE TRUMP

Let Trump be Trump.

There’s a new book out by this name, and at least the title says volumes.  Seldom have we seen a phenomenon like Trump.  He communicates personally by social media, ignoring the press like the plague it has turned out to be.  They, along with the rest of the Washington Establishment, literally hate him for his unconventionality because they can’t control him, so much so that there’s a well-established movement to impeach him.

The result is a President Of The People.  Whether or not he can survive outside the establishment will be seen, but so far he’s accomplished quite a lot of what he promised, and will continue to do so for as long as he has the support of those he represents.

So let Trump be Trump!

He can win, you know.  And the world will be better for it.

ETHICAL ISSUES: UNIONS

ETHICS, UNIONS, and UNIONIZATION

I’ve long suspected that the rampant liberalism of the 1960s would have toxic effects on our society in the future.  The future is now.  That being said, I propose the following:

[My own well-documented research in this area in preparation of my MBA thesis (Unionization And The Professional; Fairleigh Dickinson University, 1970) was done at the very time the movement was active, so I have more than a passing knowledge of the subject.  An interview with Fred Siegel by Matthew Kaminski (Wall Street Journal, November 26-27, 2011) brings it into sharper focus.]

ethics in politics?

Unfortunately…

Believe it or else: our current financial crisis is in large part a result of public sector unions. The decline of the blue-collar worker in the ’50s resulted in decline in union membership, heralding a decline in union stature and commensurate decline in union power.  In order to survive, unions had to look elsewhere for membership.  Failing in their attempts to unionize private sector (the economy) professionals and white-collar workers, they turned their efforts to the public sector.

ETHICS, TRUTH, and GLOBAL WARMING

ETHICAL ISSUES:  GLOBAL WARMING

It’s natural…

Global warming is a fact.  Global cooling is a fact.  But global warming caused by man-made carbon dioxide is not a fact (a fact being absolute truth).  Earth’s conditions continue to change because of constant cosmological and geological functioning. The earth precesses (wobbles on its axis) and its poles shift.  Temperatures change.  Sunspots affect conditions on earth; recent studies show that the sun’s activity affects the formation of certain clouds (water vapor), which themselves affect climatic conditions.  Plate tectonics move entire continental masses, and sub-sea rifting and volcanoes affect ocean currents and temperatures world-wide.  Earth is not a static entity—it’s dynamic, constantly changing, and it’s big.   Conditions on earth and in its atmosphere change as well—they must.

PRESIDENT TRUMP FIGHTS BACK

AN ANONYMOUS CONTRIBUTION

I have no idea who wrote this about President Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship.  It came to me via the internet through a friend.  It is presented here slightly edited and shortened:

ethics

Friends often ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”

We on the right have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.

We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?

We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?

And the results were always the same. This is because,

THE ETHICS OF A POPULIST PRESIDENCY

THE POPULIST PRESIDENCY

The political world certainly has changed.  Just over a year ago after electing a new President, the stock markets began to rise to unprecedented highs (and show no signs of reversing).

This president has caused turmoil within both parties; both have changed markedly in their traditional positions to the point where they are hardly recognizable.  The truth is that neither party expected the results of the election.  This President was elected not by party line, but instead by the people.  We have, in effect, a new party claimed by neither historical one, both of which have polarized internally. 

The Democrats virtually do not accept the results of the election and have moved even farther left, and the Republican “Never Trumpers” have failed to develop a consensus or even support the leader of their own party, and have drawn the ire of

ETHICS and CONSERVATISM

ETHICAL ISSUES:  CONSERVATISM

Conservatism is not a political issue, nor is what follows intended to be a political statement.  It’s more basic than that.  The foundation for conservatism is history and original intent—a return to the basics, ethics being the most basic.  Anyone can do it.

There’s nothing mysterious about it…

Any society needs a system of rules within which its members can operate to the general benefit. These rules are founded in its values and articulated in its privileges.  The rules of all successful societies including our own begin in ethics and are adapted to the society’s needs and wishes.

Our own rules trace their origin to a paramount need for freedom.  Our laws are founded in a Declaration of Independence from our mother country and empowered by a Constitution written by individuals with a strong ethical and moral base “in order to form a more perfect union.”
