    Gatto was in his last year or two when I began teaching in the city. Longest two years of my life. By 86 I was on Wall Street. Common as dirt? That depends on how one defines "genius". For some odd reason, my life has been graced with several genius or near-genius level intellects who always make me feel like the dumbest man in the room. Perhaps I am too big a snoot to accept that genius is common as Gatto claims. To me, real genius is rare as lips on chickens and usually comes with an eidetic memory. Lesser forms of genius I might call very common, but I consider those of secondary magnitude. Some of the people I have called friends are true geniuses and I can tell you that being so endowed is very much a mixed blessing. My friend Steve, for example, worked with Seymour Cray back in the bad old days of real computer science. He wrote the entire math libraries for the Crays all by himself. That, my pal, is no mean feat. My friend Dan wrote and entire screen handling library that AT&T used for years. I watched him write it in his basement from soup to nuts in about five hours one Friday evening, while stoned, I kid you not. He invented all manner of things before they became common items. My father's best friend from the old country was a fabulous intellect. His grandfather was Miksa Roth, a famous Hungarian glass artist. Zoli was a singular alcoholic whose capacities in my experience were eclipsed only by the mother of my daughters, and 88# Ukrainian woman who could put down a quart of vodka in short order and you'd never know she'd had a drop. I stayed with her as long as I did because she was so endlessly hot... and sick and twisted like me. One takes their love where it can be found. One of my collleagues and teachers at CUNY, Bob Goldman, is a genius. I used to help him do mathematical proofs in software using Aura and ITP. I'd follow him down some very arcane mathematical rabbit hole, understanding perfectly until he'd hang a sudden left or right and I was instantly lost. I'd just smile and nod as if I knew what he was talking about. He was in high orbit around Jupiter. I was sucking the poo solutino from my neighbor's septic tank. Funny thing about him though, is he'd been married to one of the supermodels of the 70s... like Cheryl Tieg or someone like that, and he'd been an army ranger. He was no typical nerd. One Friday a brother from the local environs (Harlem) decided to rob one of the nice ladies from the Bursar's Office. As he was trying to pry her handbag away, out of nowhere Bob descended upon him and put him in a condition fit for the ER, which is where he ended up, in cuffs. We were all astonished that this nice Jewish boy from Riverdale was a badass mofo. I find that far too many people conflate common creativity, which can be vastly powerful, with actual genius, which is a zebra of a very different stripe. And having eidetic memory doesn't guarantee the caliber of intellect to which I refer. I lost mine in 1992 when I contracted lyme disease and I was never even close to being a genius, sad to say. But Gatto's positions on the nature of the school system are 100% on the money. Having been fool enough to have not quit on my third day as a teacher, the moment I'd twigged to the fact that I'd balled myself in the ass with the choice, I suffered through two years of the unspeakable criminality of American public schools. My friend jake retired just last year. He endured 37 years of that crap and all I can say is that I have to hand it to him for sheer fortitude. When I decided to carry a sidearm to school with me, I knew it was time to go, and I did.

    If you're not doing anything else, then that's on you. RPF is a place where like-minded people can gain fortitude and recharge their batteries in whatever fight they're fighting. We are fighting against the masses and each sacrifice makes us feel alone. RPF shows us that we are NOT alone in our beliefs. I suspect that VERY few of us are "sitting here on our asses". Pic tax:

    Seriously? Under Pelosi basically all the spending has been rolled up in massive omnibus spending bills that no one has time to read. No one has more power over the purse than the Speaker. Not that important? You don't believe money is power, then?

    Fauci is on Bleats the Press ragging on China for locking down without an "end game", refusing Western jabs, and not jabbing the elderly. "I don't align myself with anybody." "The deaths between Republicans and Democrats are dramatic." That's true, Fauci. Why don't you say which group is dying at a higher rate?

    Gracias. Well yes, but more broadly stated, it stems from the basically ratty nature of the mean human being. I'd not characterize it as frustration, though; more like amusement carrying that hint of head-shaking disgust. A very well chosen term, and one I almost never see employed in the way you do so here. Excellent. It carries a host of implications that paint a picture of beings capable of doing for themselves in ways Theye dread in such hands. Powerful thought in the hands of the rabble is the one thing I believe that Theye fear above all things.

    The fact that any nation views other nations as a threat in this day and age, is all anyone needs to know to come to the correct assessment that we are a species of losers. Is it not bad enough that we have to worry about such matters with individuals and small gangs? That we have to wring our hands over the fact that people now superorganize on national levels... that is the proof that we shall not end well, no matter what happens. The problem isn't communism, or dictatorships. The problem is the human animal, and that animal never changes. I have recently wondered whether that fact is what stands behind this now very obvious push to so-called "transhumanism". It would make very strong sense that Theye would seek to change the fundamental nature of the vastly greater bulk of humanity. Change them so as to become more reliably manageable, which of course necessitates the obviation of our tendency to rebel, regardless of causes and other reasons. The only chances that remain for liberty, so far as I can see, are as follow: A non-scripted reset event occurs, knocking us back to what would essentially become the new stone age. Every nation on the planet is dissolved in terms of what we know as "state governments".

My personal story (pt2)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:57 AM
Among my many interests was electricity and I decided that I wanted to change how the industry operates. Understanding the free market as I did, I was pissed that the coolest discovery in the history of mankind was being regulated to death by the government. I wanted to change that.

I found a job as a part-time temporary meter reader. My girlfriend went ballistic that I was quitting a salaried job for a part-time temp job, but I had complete confidence in what I was doing. Meter

My personal story (pt 1)

by CaptUSA on 02-24-2016 at 09:55 AM
I’ve never used this blog feature before, but since people have wondered (and asked) about my personal story, I figured it was best to do it in here rather than the forums.

It may come across as anecdotal, but I assure you that this same type free market story is working itself out all over the country and the globe. Even in the face or increasing government interference.

I was born in Western PA the third of four boys. When I was still a baby, the second child died
