The Confederacy of American Aristocracy.

Are you beginning to grasp the totality of the great American college admissions corruption?

America was founded by some of the smartest people who ever lived including Benjamin Franklin. None of them liked the British system of titled nobility and prohibited it in the United States.

Franklin once said, “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid.”

Almost all of English literature and much of the news in America concerns people who never have to worry about money at all.

Americans love to watch or read about emotional crises among people who live in a world of great fortune both in matters of luck and money; stories and fantasies about rock stars and film stars, sporting millionaires and models; jet-setting members of the aristocracy and international financiers, corrupt politicians and news media celebrities.

Many of these people, who wield great power and influence, are dumber than a rock in spite of their degrees from prestigious universities.

We now know they buy university degrees like ranchers buy and sell cattle.

A starving kid, who steals an apple, is more likely to go to prison than an aristocrat who purloins a billion dollars.

The American nobility can pay people to write their books and pay to get them on the New York Times Bestseller list.

For some inexplicable reason, Americans will vote for nobility over intellect and proven service.

Here’s what I’m taking about. A man graduated first in his class at the Naval Academy and became an officer in the Marine Corps.

He served as a platoon commander in Vietnam and was awarded the Navy Cross for heroism, the second highest decoration in the Navy and Marine Corps. He was also awarded the Silver Star, two Bronze Stars, and two Purple Hearts.

He then served as a United States Senator from Virginia, Secretary of the Navy, Assistant Secretary of Defense and Counsel for the United States House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs.

In 2016, Jim Webb ran for President of the United States and never made it to first base in the Democrat race.

On March 4, 2016, Webb stated that he would not vote for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election, but he declined to rule out voting for Donald Trump.

When I look at most politicians like Governor Cuomo of New York, Governor Newsom of California and Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas along with the leaders of Congress, I wonder who is dumber, the politicians or the people who vote them in office.

I guess people prefer an America of smoke and mirrors instead of facing reality?  Maybe P.T. Barnum was right when he said, “There’s a sucker born every minute?”

Matthew wrote this in Chapter 25:
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,  I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'”

When will you be able to separate the sheep from the goats?

    certainly when we speak of how college degrees have become cheapened – this is exhibit A – running the Ivy League like an extended club system.
