Blame Baltimores Riots On Its Politicians

There are always complicated root causes behind why riots like these occur, but either people disagree about those causes and their reasons, or they simply don’t like admitting what they are.    There already have been comparisons to Ferguson, but Baltimore’s burning cityscape is the fault of those much closer to home. Baltimore is no Ferguson. What they do share in common is arguably the issue with police abuse, harassment, ect that is encouraged and often demanded by local municipal governments that are out of control; raking every last cent out of people through taxes, fees, fines, and tickets. In fact,...

Rejecting Guilt By Association

Regardless of what mortals you follow, adore, admire, and pay homage you will at some point disagree with them.  Whether it’s most of the time or almost never, no one will ever hold exactly all the viewpoints that you have come to cherish. A tweet from Milo Yiannapolous prompted the above line of thought in which he voices disagreement with libertarians on the NSA spying incident – color my libertarian tendencies irked. Amazing how many otherwise sensible people, especially libertarians, are gibbering, pliant idiots when it comes to Manning and Snowden. — Milo Trumpopoulos ✘ (@Nero) April 23, 2015 Obviously,...

Weight Loss and Caring About Your Friends

A friend of mine has been struggling in the dating market – to put it simply.  She wants a guy that is attracted to her, and she wants to share in that same reciprocity.   We will call her Liz.  A Facebook status about it went up. (Disclosure: Liz had a crush on me for a long time.  Her weight was the main reason I didn’t share the same feelings.  You can’t force attraction. )  Now Liz isn’t exactly the most attractive girl, and the fact that she is overweight doesn’t make it any easier for her to improve this....

Irony In Death: The Tale Of Amalaric

A few of us have heard of the mighty Alaric the Goth – more so if you’ve played Age Of Empires or Civilization – a proud proponent of the Christian heresy of the time  known as Arianism.    No, it has nothing to do with Aryans, Hitler, Nazis, ect.    It’s founder, Arius, denied the doctrine of the Trinity as well as some other ideas which today are strangely emanated by Jehovah’s Witnesses.   Apparently some ideas can stand the test of time. Arius would die almost a SouthPark like death.  The last bowel movement he passed, resulted in quite...

No Good Deed Goes Unpunished – Opinionated Man

The Beauty of An Actual Diverse Community Opinionated Man a.k.a. Jason Cushman over at HarshReality is what one could consider a powerblogger of sorts – whatever that term even means anymore.   He actually may be addicted to blogging to the annoyance of his wife.   Over time, he has used his site to promote other WordPress bloggers as well as to promote community interaction between all of us. In particular, his WordPress Meet & Greet threads for bloggers have been fantastic and he has featured a weekly number of “Guest Posts” written by just about anybody who has come across...

Mandatory Church Attendance? Or Just Misleading Clickbait?

Another day, another sensationalist story and headline too good to be true.  With headlines like, “Arizona Lawmaker: Church Attendance Should Be Mandatory,” social media feeds burst with anger, vitriol, and waxed lyrically about the necessity of Church and State and the insane and theocratic idea that is mandatory church attendance… Except that context of this entire faux outrage is crucial, but inconvenient in how it gets in the way of relaying the full picture about mandatory “church attendance”.   It is of course very easy to believe the worst about people’s whose politics you don’t like. During a committee with lawmakers in Arizona about gun...

A Glossary For Social Justice Warrior Speak

Milo Yiannopoulos over at the extremely biased right wing outlet Breitbart has come up with a very good Lexicon that translates what social justice warriors and a very prominent breed of progressives mean when they throw out concepts like, “harassment”, “safe-space,” ect. Also included are translations from commentors after many late night secessions spent studying ancient progressive cuneiform and pictographs.  Their work is now published for the benefit of your education as you interact with SJWs online in your quest to better understand how you are a terrible privileged person deserving death or at least a stint in a gender...

#RaceTogether And Have Your Reputation Destroyed

Prepare Your Smartphones For War #RaceTogether is a minefield filled with short-tempered caffeine deprived customers who consider the concept of patience to be hate-speech rather then a virtue.   Then throw in some barbed wired and machine gun nests known as the smart-phone. Every one has a smart phone these days that can record any conversation – a blessing and a curse.   It’s a foregone conclusion that any actual honest dialogue can take place between groups of extremely racially sensitive people.   Your words are a tweet away from being broadcast to the dark corners of tumblr dwelling other-kins and...

Not Everyone Cares For MLK Day. Why?

  Opinionated Man (OM) over at Harsh Reality is known for offending people and he’s at it again with an article most of us wouldn’t have had the balls to write entitled, “Why I don’t care for Martin Luther King Day”  Yes, he went there.  Another day, another Cushman crushing. MLK like Lincoln, Washington, and Reagan,  is one of American culture’s Golden Calves.  You can’t even point out any wrong they did or any mistaken ideas they espoused without being labeled some kind of “ist or ism”.  In this case, you would be labeled a racist.  It’s almost a reverse, “guilt...

We Are Terrified of Actual Romance

The Desire For Romance They say that you aren’t ready to be with someone else if you haven’t fixed your own problems.   Well, with that conclusion, it seems no one is ready to date or find a relationship. In fact, it sounds more like an excuse because we refuse to face the fact that we are terrified of actual romance – or the possibility and potential of it. How many people these days do you know have relationships that never last more than a few months? Or when things get serious, they scamper away?  Commitment these days is a dirty...
