You’re Going To Die

Posted in Humor, Musings, Society on August 6th, 2017

This is a simple fact. You’re going to die. Something in this world is going to kill you, me, and everyone else currently alive. This is a fact, an incontrovertible fact, a cornerstone of our existence.

You’re Going To Die

It’s the response to this facet of reality by so damn many people in America that makes this video funny, ironic social commentary, and a useful example of why things like Obamacare were always doomed to fail.

Simply and inelegantly put, too many inside America’s borders are cowards who fear death far too much to even live. Indeed, they fear their own deaths – inevitabilities each and every one – so much that they won’t even let others live their lives.

Do Check Your Privilege

Posted in Musings, Philosophy, Society on May 6th, 2015

Everyone, please do check you privileges. Oh, not in the manner that the Liberals and Progressives mean for you to do so in order to delegitimize any opinion that you might have that dissents against their agenda and closely held beliefs. Instead check your privileges and, if possible, enumerate them for yourselves because the privileges you’ve earned or your ancestors earned for you will go along way towards defining the character of your culture.

I would say that, even more than rights, privileges are the fundamental metric of what any people value and hold dear.
