Sex and Drugs and Money

Sounds like a Warren Zevon song, doesn't it? Like "Lawyers, Guns and Money."

"The highest virtues in the Scholastic tradition are the 'theological virtues' (faith, hope, charity), followed by the 'intellectual virtues' while the 'moral' virtues' are of the lowest order. The lowest of all was 'temperantia' which included chastity." - Leftism Revisited, Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

I know an 84-year-old man who spent his career as a political consultant. He told me he's only met one honest politician. He said all the rest were dishonest and had sex, money and drug problems. Not to mention going into politics because they didn't want to work.

So I always use those criteria to judge politicians. Not to mention people in general.

Both the Clintons are perfect examples of politicians who are dishonest and have sex, drug and money problems. They are also greedy and have no charity whatsoever. That's why I have no use for them. It finally got to the point no one else did either.

Trump, on the other hand, appears to have sex problems, at least when it comes to beautiful women. But money problems, no. He's a multi-billionaire. Drug problems, no. His brother died of alcoholism, which is why he doesn't drink.

LBJ was a major horndog. He paid for a lot of whores, both black and white. And he was a terrible man and a terrible President, who escalated in Vietnam and then ran away and dumped it into Nixon's lap. He also instituted that massively destructive "Great Society" boondoggle.

JFK was also a major horndog. Gore Vidal was a friend of his and said he the most unqualified man he ever met who was President. Yet he wasn't that bad of President. Since he was killed when he had only been President for about a thousand days we'll never know what kind of President he would have been.

Sex problems aren't very much of a problem, although they can be because they can be the basis of so many other problems. Left-wing non-problems such "racism" and "sexism" and "misogyny? Those aren't even problems. There are many real problems, such as the dishonesty and obscene greed and the drug and money problems. The drug and money problems have always been considered major sins. The sex problems, not so much. The non-problems? Not at all.

By the way, Trump won because he was able to give people faith and hope. People respond to that and not the intellect. The Hildebeast couldn't do that. Neither could the 76-year-old bobble-head Jew Commie New England Yankee (that combination is the worst in the U.S) and that is why no one around could have beat Trump.

I rarely predict Presidential elections because there was no difference between the candidates. I did predict Reagan over Carter because Reagan gave people hope and faith and Carter gave them nothing except advice to wear sweaters and turn down their thermostats.

Now that I think about, most politicians are lawyers and start wars. So "Lawyers, Guns and Money" also applies to them.

Problem with sex sins is that if they aren't nipped in the bud it'll lead to the worse sins of pride and greed.

"Trump, on the other hand, appears to have sex problems, at least when it comes to beautiful women."

Kind of funny, but I think that was part of his appeal. I mean Caitlyn Jenner was the woman of the year, the LGBTQ lobby has been running rampant, and 50 shades was a bestseller. Just about every perversion under the sun became acceptable except for plain old boring heterosexuality.

Along comes Trump with an almost innocent sexual persona from yesteryear, "I like beautiful women, I like to kiss them." I'm sure Trump has all kinds of issues, but the media's attempt to turn what basically amounts to natural male/female attraction into something dirty and ugly, really struck a nerve in this country.

I would presume if you followed the 'theological virtues' (faith, hope, charity) the lower order virtues would fall into place - or one would have better judgement associated with “not being led into temptation.”
