With Age, Wisdom

With Age, Wisdom

That’s the Gods’ honest truth! Once I aged enough and gained enough experience to stop giving a shit about other people’s opinions – right or wrong – about me, my stress reduced, my success increased, and my life got measurably better. And, once I became wise enough to realize that my detractors were both the enemy and unworthy of my respect – beyond respecting their capacity and propensity to do harm, I fully stopped allowing their opinions of me to affect me in any internal manner.

Of course, this is all and only a matter of not giving the enemy the hand-out of power over my self. It’s very much not the platonic ideal of iconoclasm and free thought. It can’t be; not so long as the Democrats and their ilk are so ready to act upon their opinions and to do so in ways designed to cause as much harm to Americans as they can without risking themselves.

Fishing Ideologies

Fishing Ideologies

Fishing, it’s a thing – a great thing and a great thing to love. Well, to the sane people among us at least; others, not so much. Great or not though, it underscores a lot of the key differences in outlook between the two primary ideologies in the US.

Simple Rules In Simple Words

Simple Rules In Simple Words
The Hillbilly 10 Commandments
Simple Rules In Simple Words
The Hillbilly 10 Commandments

While many, myself included, love the prose in the King James Version (KJV) of the Bible, I do believe that many in society would benefit far more from the simple rules therein to be told to them in simple words.

Of course, since this is all delivered in the simple words of the “Hillbilly,” the “Redneck,” the “uneducated” men and women of America’s heartland, those sorts who are the most exilic from the Word, the most fallen away from any faith, and who would most benefit from simple rules in simple words are exactly the ones that would and will reject and deride this.

Then, a great many of those sorts would reject and deride these simple rules and their underlying wisdom no matter what prose they were couched in. They find them to be abhorrent and an abomination.

Tinfoil Wisdom

Tinfoil Wisdom
Tinfoil Wisdom

Who’s shaking the jar? Somebody has to be shaking it! There has to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. Or, so says one variety of common wisdom. A variety I choose to call Tinfoil Wisdom.

With the exception of the Lamestream Media, who shakes things up for their own profit as much as any agenda, there doesn’t have to be any shadowy figure “shaking the jar.” Certain sorts are quite capable of behaving heinously without manipulative instigation. They’re just that bad all on their own.

This is unfortunately the curse of being sentient. We’re built to make use of pattern recognition and, hence, we’re susceptible to false pattern recognition aka Apophenia. We are, as Klaus Conrad wrote, prone to the unmotivated seeing of connections accompanied by a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness and to engaging in self-referential, over-interpretations of what we see and hear.

There doesn’t have to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. With the ease of communication and the resultant online “echo chambers,” we’re quite capable of producing conflicts organically.

Of course, all that said, that doesn’t mean that sometimes, at some various levels, that there isn’t someone “shaking the jar.” It just means that there doesn’t have to be and that we should jump to the conclusion that there is. Sometimes, probably the majority of times, that “Shaker” didn’t start the shit; they just enabled existing troublemakers in order to profiteer off of them.

Sadly Unheeded Wisdom

A Message To The Left – Unheeded Wisdom

And here are very much needed words of wisdom for the Left from a brave young man, Devon Stack. Sadly, unheeded wisdom is the hallmark of failure and, hence, an essential piece of the Liberals’ and Progressives’ dogma. As such, they’ll never listen.

No, the Left and those that they pander to- and enable, through their hatred, their spite, and their unending attacks upon the average American, are responsible for causing a condition to develop in this country which will create a climate that will bring seeds up out of the ground with vegetation on the end of them looking like something these people never dreamed of outside of their worst nightmares.
