Look, I’m quite

15 Jun

convinced that Hillary will win the general election. That also means that Conservatives lose the Supreme Court. Your right to bear arms will shortly be gone and every pregnant woman gets an abortion unless (perhaps) sh opts out.

What

12 Jun

great advice! 

Here’s the bald truth: whatever you do you will get tired of. It is work, not a hobby. What you are good at is what you do you become interested in, not vice-versa. In short, it is your way of being in the world that is the issue, not the “out there” task. Love and interest is an action, not some pre-existing state. And love only comes from hard and constant work, which is the same with all relationships.

When I was in the Navy, many folks around me had been to many different duty stations. So when it came time for me to say what my preferences were for my next duty station, I talked to people who had been there.

What I found out was that what a person thought about a particular place was more related to the personal qualities of that person themselves than to the place itself. Sure, there were commonalities, and it was wise to pay attention to those, but that was ultimately superficial. The overall evaluation was a product of the speaker’s personal characteristics rather than of the place itself.

For example, I lived 3 years in Okinawa, Japan. It was beautiful. The East China Sea was stunning. We had a Mongoose family that lived on a large hill just off my back yard. Even the Typhoons were amazing, and I experienced 140mph winds!  I had to learn to drive on the left side of the road. My wife and I ate out as much as we could, and you can bet that we never ate American food if we could help it (there was a raw octopus in spicy sauce dish that we really loved). We just loved that place, and were very sad to leave. We still look back fondly on it.

Yet one of our friends absolutely hated it there. She had a calendar and put a big “X” in each day as it was done, counting the days until she could get off “the rock.” So if you had asked me and asked her how Okinawa was, you would get very different answers. THAT was personality, not “objective” reality. You might get a similar description of climate and topography, but that is quite superficial, and basically tells you almost nothing.

Yes, of course

they are cooking the books. Pretty obvious. I just tried the search, and got the exact same result. They are cooking the books. Maybe this will help correct things. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

I have long been

01 Jun

NOT a Trump fan, and I’m still not. Still, it was nice to see him really go after the dishonest press. I think it’s high time that we put on our big boy pants and called things as they are.

And don’t kid yourself. THAT is the very reason that Trump got traction at all. If the GOP “leadership” hadn’t been such chattering panty-waists this never would have happened in the first place! But no, they had to push McCain and Romney, ignoring the fact that regular people were getting totally fed up. No one wanted a Kasich-type wuss to get the GOP nod. No one.

 
 

Why the bathroom issue?

23 May

And why all of a sudden?

I think the bathroom issue shows a growing disparity in opinion and culture. In years gone by, we would have all agreed on such obvious things, even if we were being “counter-culture” by bucking some things. But now there are real cultural differences, so the very definitions are disputed. There is not a common ground to work from. It’s not just purple hair. That is disagreement on a very different level.

But I also think this is an indication of the widening moral gap between Left and Right. See, it used to be that one could straddle the divide fairly easily. But no more. The gap has grown wider and wider and you are going to have jump to one side or the other.

very likely unconstitutional. If I lived in DC I would be mightily torqued to have my Constitutional rights abrogated.

it might “stick” because it is true! We all know is is true. Let’s call a heart a heart and a spade a spade.

Let’s be frank–she is crooked as the day is long…
