Contextual Logic

Posted in Humor, Philosophy, Politics on November 29th, 2012

Americans normally think of Liberals and Progressives as being illogical, especially when it comes to the disparity of their views on President Bush, Jr. and Barack Obama. This is, from what I can tell, an erroneous conclusion. Liberal logic is logic; it’s just a variant of Contextual Logic.

Specifically, they use a form of non-classical logic crafted by Soren Hallden in 1949, refined by Stephan Korner in 1960, and then totally revamped by Michael Tye in 1994. It is called Three-Valued Logic. Of course, Liberals’ and Progressives’ value tables are different from other peoples’.

  1. Is the person White or Non-White?
  2. Is the person Republican or Democrat?
  3. What has the person done?

So, according to their Three-Valued Contextual Logic, President Bush, Jr., who is both White and Republican is a war criminal based on his actions, whereas Barack Obama, who identifies as Black and is Democrat is a responsible world leader, despite having committed the same actions.

So really, the Left is quite logical. You just have to determine what form of logic, contextual logic in this case, that they subscribe to. 😉

Best Served Old

Posted in 2012 Election, Humor, Politics, Society on November 28th, 2012

When one gets to be my age, if one has friends who are older than you, it’s not unlikely that they’re retired. This can be interesting because their lifestyles are so different from those of us still in the workforce.

I once asked an older, retired friend of mine how he kept busy since his days were free. His reply was hilarious.

The other day my wife, Mary and I went into town and visited a shop. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

We went up to him and I said, “Come on, man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?”

He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.

So I called him an “asshole”.

He glared at me and started writing another ticket; this one for having worn-out tires.

So Mary called him a “shithead”.

He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing more tickets. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Just then our bus arrived, and we got on it and went home.

We try to have a little fun each day now that we’re retired and we always try to pick cars with OBAMA 2012 bumper stickers because stupid should be painful and revenge is a dish best served old.

Seems like an enjoyable enterprise and one that has a certain use in punishing those who can’t or won’t think of what’s best for the nation whose borders they’re allowed to reside within.

Always remember that old age and experience will almost always beat youth and skill and that, in those occasions when it doesn’t, the aged have had many years to refine and perfect their sense of vengeance. 😉

A Perspective On War

Posted in Politics, Society on November 27th, 2012

Liberals and Progressives in order to curry favor with the strident harridans of the Feminist movement have made much ado about the “War on Women.” It’s past time for Americans to put get a perspective on this “war” and how our domestic enemies really think about gender relations and roles.

Real Victims Of The Real War On Women

All across the globe, certainly in every corner of the Muslim World, women are fighting a real war at great, horrific, and lasting cost to be able to be independent, make their own choices, and be able to pay for what they desire with their own money but the Liberals, Progressives, and Feminists in America claim there’s a war on women because they want someone else to pay for their contraceptives.

Yeah, within the context of Feminism, that makes sense. 🙄

Somewhere the shades of the real Feminists who were imprisoned or committed to insane asylums, with attending compulsory electroconvulsive therapy, for having the audacity to want to work, own property in their own name, or vote are weeping over what has become of Feminism in America.

What was a righteous movement seeking independence and liberty has obviously failed as it has degenerated into a movement actively seeking dependance.
