This Is How You Win

Posted in Philosophy, Society on April 29th, 2015

There always seems to be a plethora of questions about how one can win. Indeed, there are whole industries profiteering off of it. The answer is so simple though…

This Is How You Win

That’s the answer. Just as Heather Dorniden did, you get up after you’ve fallen – or have been tripped – and you run faster, try harder. This is how you win, whether it is in sports or life.

What you don’t do is: expect the race to halted and restarted; for any of your competitors to help you up; or to just lay there and blame various and sundry other people, groups, organizations, or whole cultures for your having fallen down in some fashion – even in those rare occurrences when they are to blame for it.

Sadly, this is lesson rarely taught anymore. Instead being a victim is what is taught along with blamecasting whenever one doesn’t achieve success quick enough or at all. Perhaps this is because “winning” requires there to also being losers and that’s “not fair.” Perhaps it’s simply that “validation” of one’s self-image has become more important than being of worth in the first place.

In any event, winning is quite simple. Yet, losing because you’re a victim is so much easier to both do and teach.

No Accommodation

Posted in Musings, Philosophy on April 23rd, 2015

Thinking ApeIt may surprise many that I spend a fair amount of my time musing about the state, follies, foibles, and rare successes of Man. Then again, it may not, given that people ascribe little value to such pondering and, hence, would assume I would engage in it.

Much, however, do I muse upon Man and his dysfunctional relationship with both Life and Death. How we deal or, more often than not, fail to deal with either perplexes me.

Some men seek power because life ends. Others, for the same reason, seek meaning. And yet the world is the same for both sorts, and makes no effort to accommodate either.

Running Hot and Cold

It's Global Warming! The Libtards know this because of their Art History degrees

What more is there to really say beyond the only “Climate Chaos” is that among the miseducated Liberals and Progressives as they scramble for a rationale to continue their attacks upon the economies of the Civilized World? What more is there to say beyond that the only “Meltdown” is the one happening among the Warmists as they fail to do so?

Jah’Keem Chop

Posted in Philosophy, Society on October 1st, 2014

Now that the Lamestream media has dutifully misreported and now buried the story of the murder and beheading of Colleen Hufford in Oklahoma City I decided it was time to weigh in and critique their (mis)represantion of the event and Jah’Keem Yisrael nee Alton Nolen.

Sanitizing Jah’Keem Yisrael nee Alton Nolen

The lengths that the lamestream media has gone to sanitize the image of Jah’Keem Yisrael is truly amazing. Firstly, it’s their constant reference to him as Alton Nolen when he had changed his name, at least for common usage, to Jah’Keem Yisrael. Secondly, it’s their near exclusive use of a photo of Yisrael from 2011 instead of a more recent one that shows his current appearance.

It’s truly amazing how far the media has gone to shield Islam from this vermin’s actions, irrespective of the fact that Yisrael is an extremely devout Muslim, was fired for suggesting Islamic punishments, i.e., stone, for female coworkers, and beheaded one of his victims in the same manner as Islamic fighters do.

The narrative, according the the MSM, is that this was nothing but a regrettable but isolated incident of random “Workplace Violence.” It wasn’t Muslim extremism and it certainly wasn’t yet another incidence of Muslim terrorism on US soil.

In this, the MSM may have a valid point. Yet the lengths that they’ve gone to ensure that their point is the only one available is ridiculous. I mean, talk about Anvilicious!

The Roots of Yisrael’s Savagery

As I said above, it’s my opinion that Yisrael’s savage, murderous rampage wasn’t primarily based upon his being a convert to Islam. Nor do I believe that it truly qualified as an act of terrorism.

First and foremost, Alton Nolen aka Jah’Keem Yisrael is a Black male. Indeed, he is a rather stereotypical Black male, with a history predating his prison conversion to Islam of both drug use and violence, including separate convictions for marijuana, cocaine, and assault upon a law enforcement officer. Seen in that light, his rampage makes perfect sense even without the Islamic component added to it.

From what I can determine, Islam’s involvement in the causation of his feral break with reality was tangential. His being a devout Muslim was part of why he was fired and may have provided Yisrael with some rationale for his response to it, but the boy was more than likely to have responded with murder in any event. No, the largest input Islam had on the Oklahoma City rampage was that it provided Yisrael the exact means of his violence, that of beheading one of his victims with a knife in imitation of the Jihadis.

~*~

From what I can tell, Yisrael murdered because he was just another Black male ghetto thug but he beheaded his victim because he was a Muslim. Hence, it’s not unfair to call it “Workplace Violence.” It also, however, not unfair to point out that, causative or not, Islam did color the events and greatly added to the bestially savage nature of them.

Many Have Asked

Posted in Humor, Philosophy, Politics on June 4th, 2014

What is the nature of reality? It’s a question that many have asked and that many, many more have thought to answer.

If Obama gave a speech in a forest and there was no-one to hear him would he still lie
Would He Still Lie?

The Bishop of Cloyne, George Berkeley asked this, as did William Fossett. So too did Albert Einstein, Charles Riborg Mann, and George Ransom Twiss. Indeed, throughout the modern age the question has been posed in publications as diverse as The Chautauquan and Scientific American.
