An absurd mental escape: Captain Forehead (Good luck!)

Day 30 of June

Impressive? Unfortunate?

Is it impressive or unfortunate?

The Obama administration has managed to convince half of the people who vote that he is a man of the people, that his government is pro-people, not pro-business first. Yet his actions make it clear he is a good ole crony-capitalist enabler.

White House poised to name patent reform opponent as new head of Patent Office

The Obama Administration’s expected choice to lead the Patent Office is a Johnson & Johnson lawyer who has been a key figure in blocking attempts to reform the patent system.

And who did he put in charge of the FCC?

Gosh, Perhaps Next Time Don't Appoint a Lobbyist to Run the FCC?

While that's no surprise, people who should have opposed appointing a former cable and wireless lobbyist to lead the agency instead supported Wheeler's nomination... [Read]


(If you would like to laugh about the subject, watch John Oliver Suggests Renaming “Net Neutrality” To “Cable Company F*ckery”)

And yet, somehow people think this administration is a people first administration. Whether it is stupidity or gullibility, it is impressive and so unfortunate. Simple clear politics, where the only party are the parties to power.

Why the Apologies?

The PC police have been swinging their batons like old school blackjacks. Look at the news these days -- and really, is there anything more newsworthy than another's thoughts? -- and you will see the quotes of someone that the Politically Correct Thought Police (PCTP) has labeled as an offender. Apparently, we must all be warned of words said that someone finds offensive -- though, what is not offensive to someone.

The PCTP do not believe in free speech, or free ideas, or ignorance, or stupidity, they believe in uniformity. It is their belief that we must all think and speak alike, and those that do not agree with what is professed to be approved thought must be singled out and punished. These days there has been a ramping up of the PCTP in riot gear, striking forcefully upon those with whom they cite. (And these people think they are intelligent because their bias is superior?)

Yes, for the truly tolerant, this is absurd, but it does beg the question, 'Why so many apologies?'

The PCTP are encouraged because their bludgeoning is getting results. Everywhere you will see those that have said something that has caught the attention of the offended apologizing for their words. Does it change their words? No. Does it erase their words? No. Does it change how they feel? No. Will it keep them from expressing themselves in the future? Probably. Is that the goal, to quell conversation? It seems so.

By paying heed to the PCTP, we have discarded the need for conversation. Why communicate, for there is one officially appropriate stance on everything, and all other perspectives are to be crushed. State the PC line, or state nothing. So why state anything? We know the PC line, so there is nothing left to discuss. How boring this will become.

It would be nice if people were stronger and would take a stand against the PCTP, be willing to pay the price for being true to themselves, but people seem to be worn down by the bludgeoning. The PCTP are violent bullies, PC approved, waiting to pounce and be honoured for the pouncing. Fuck them all! Do you really want to spend your life being approved, or do you want the freedom you inherit as a human to express yourself in the full ignorance and brilliance of your experience and understanding? You do not have to succumb. Sometimes there is more comfort in your mistake than in kowtowing to the berating of others.

Remember, when you apologize, they own you and they know that. Apologies change nothing, they are just a way of making you bow before your master.

Why Create?

Crushing the ability to succeed crushes the desire to attempt:

Truth

The truth about knowledge is that we know so very little, but it is one of the little conundrums: the more you know, the more you understand how little we know.

One of the panicking man-made global warming scientists has continued to learn, realizing we do not know:


Green Guru James Lovelock on Climate Change: ‘I don’t think anybody really knows what’s happening. They just guess’ – Lovelock Reverses Himself on Global Warming

Money Used to Arrange Hand Holding

If it is not enough that the government spends money for bloated bureaucracy, be comforted by the fact that there are those who will hold the hands of those who were not looking for aid and direct them to their handout:

The Dark Ages Live!

You can choose to laugh or cry, but a great number of our fellow citizens are babbling, sycophant idiots and are not capable of change. The universal 'we' look back on the ignorance of the past as unavoidable, because they did not know better. We should know better, but every day people wake and fear the rain, or the lack of rain, or the snow, or the lack of snow, or the heat, or the cold, or the wind, or a volcano, or an earthquake, or any other myriad of natural events. Their ignorance is not a joke, but you might as well laugh.

Many of these same people who tremble in fear of the changing nature would readily agree that the earth has experienced many ice ages, and periods of warming that would make life unsustainable for the human species. They would say they understand that this information is part of the historical record, yet they presently believe that man is now dictating the changes in the natural evolution of the planet -- that we are nature's god. What do they think would happen if the human species did not exist? (For those unclear: If the human species did not exist, nature would continue to change. for change is all that is assured.)

Perhaps fear is a natural state, just as natural as ignorance, and it would appear the two are probably very highly correlated.

Clearly Disgraceful

As a whole, politicians are disgraceful, and the idea that we cede so much power over out lives to them is discouraging. As to the lie of the 'low' unemployment rate, we suggest you read the following:

Government By and For

A government by the people and for the people exists to protect the rights of the people.

A government by the governing for the governing exists to protect the prospering of the governing.

This Too Will POP

BubbleIndex.com nails it, this all a bubble of fantasy and it going to pop!

It is amazing that the economy is growing at a less than 3% rate, but the equities of companies doing business in this anemic economy are growing 1, 2 or 3 percent a day, regularly. Yeah, this is sustainable.

Haven't we been here before?
