Linkfest: General - April 20, 2018

Pictures without hat tips are ones I’ve saved previously; my apologies for not giving credit on those.These linkfests grow over a few days; some might not be “cutting edge” news by the time I get to posting.Hey, I have a life… CHARITABLE APPEAL

Whenever there is a natural disaster my initial inclination is to give to The Salvation Army.They’re fast, they have low overhead, and they get it done.So to help them build up a war chest for the next – inevitable – natural disaster, I encourage you do to so as well.
I am also fond of the Shriner’s Hospitals; they do such great work and often completely gratis to the patients.
And as we lead up to Memorial Day, I’ve been made aware of Wreaths AcrossAmerica.Let’s honor those who gave all.

April 19, 1775: The Day the Revolution Started

The shot heard round the world.  People, including my ancestors on my father's side, stood ready to lay down their lives for one word: LIBERTY.  FREEDOM, as individuals.

And today, too many Americans stand ready to surrender those freedoms for the siren song of Collectivist safety.

Those of us who love this country, and its uniqueness, its exceptionalism, must prepare to defend that precious jewel of liberty again.

Live free or die.  Death is not the worst of evils. -- John Stark
And taking up the torch against a mortal enemy, channeling the Roman statesman Cato the Elder, every post will now be concluded with this:

I do not coexist with cancer; I do not find common ground with gangrene.  The Left must be fought and destroyed, or America dies. -- NITZAKHON

Wallet Raping Day - er, Tax Filing Deadline

To all you Leftist vermin who think that taxes should go up, how about - instead - you haul out your checkbooks and write a check:

Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Funds Management Branch
P.O. Box 1328
Parkersburg, WV 26106-1328

And let me keep my damned money.  So I can buy more ammo against the day my Prophecy from Star Trek's Omega Glory turns into reality.

And I'm going to end every post with this from now on.  It's a do-or-die message.

I do not coexist with cancer; I do not find common ground with gangrene.  The Left must be fought and destroyed, or America dies. -- NITZAKHON

An Open Letter to my Fellow American Jews

This was not an easy to write; I suspect it will be difficult to read as well.I don’t want to be harsh, I don’t want to be nasty, but this is a “tough love” message that needs saying.Let me not waste time.

THE MISSING INSTINCT In Civilizational Collapse and the Brain, I hypothesized about a possible biological explanation for why it is that civilizations collapse.The theory – go read the whole thing, I think it’s definitely one of my best pieces! – is simple: comfort and safety from birth lead to an atrophy of the threat recognition ability.My essay mentions, and I think ties in very well with, the r/K reproductive strategy switch, which is ably related alongside other thoughts by Bill Whittle in this video:

Civilizations collapse from within, because people let the destructor in; one example is The Barbarians Who Sacked Rome Came Into the Empire as Refugees.Who is coming in now?My essay has several examples about today’s Is…
