IT’S ALL SNAKE OIL AND YOU ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR IT

The world is a stupid place filled with stupid people. I might be one of them but I can at least admit when I’m wrong, change my opinion based off of new information, and acknowledge that I do not know everything. This doesn’t have much to do with with me but it does have a lot to do with stupid people who vote.

 

Looking at this years election all I can see in many cases is the idea that you are all being sold snake oil. Yeah, it always is in politics but there are certain candidates that it looks as if that is all they are. Some are just old school political scum like Hillary Clinton. She isn’t selling shit except the fact she thinks she deserves the nomination because she is just an egomaniac. She is a Clinton only the one with the least amount of charm. Chelsea who has very little going for he other than money and the breeding can at least smile and you don’t believe she is thinking about murdering puppies when she does. At the best of times Hillary looks like an evil alien wearing a people suit yelling love me. Enough with the Clintons, enough with the Bush’s, enough with that one guy that already dropped out.

 

All other candidates aside the two who I think are the definition or snake oil are Trump and Sanders. It might be for two different reasons since one might actually believe in his bullshit but that is all are, snake oil salesmen. They did tap into the problem with American politics though. The Absolut disillusionment and hatred the average person has for the political class. I get that. I’m there with you guys. I hate the DC elite shitwads just as much as you I just think you are all being taken for a ride. They are selling you the same bullshit populism and failed economic theories people have been pushing for centuries. Yeah some of the things they say might be good or even reasonable but that does not stop all the other bullshit. One is mostly nothing more than a demagogue and the other is just bribing idiots for votes off of an economic platform that anyone with sense should know could never be able to deliver a fraction of its promises.

 

To make is simple if you believe that Trumps believes half the shit he says and it isn’t just to get elected you are a fool and I find s strange that you will ignore his lies and then complain about Clinton’s lies. On the other side if you think that the crap that Sanders says is either constitutional or even affordable you are lying to yourself.

 

Now is you must know I’ll tell you of the two Trump would probably be the least worst of those two as president but as a person I like Sanders better. I don’t dislike Sanders I just think he is a fool. He is the guy in the middle of a pyramid scheme that actually believes the things he is selling. But honestly believing in something doesn’t make it correct and doesn’t mean you aren’t selling snake oil.

 

I have never liked Trump as a person. Yes I am biased against him in this regard. I can’t stand the guy and never have. I didn’t like him 20 years ago well before he ever tried to run for office before he even had his own annoying reality show. I think he is scum. He is the exact type of businessman that is the problem with money in politics. He was an always has been a corporatist. He used Eminent Domain to get the government to take other people homes and businesses so he could make a profit off of the land and then sent in his kickbacks to the politicians that helped him in the form of campaign contributions and such. If you don’t understand why I said corporatist look up the idea of crony capitalism. That is Donald Trump. Trump is the guy that uses politicians to get away with all of the horrible things we accuse big business of. Yeah I know when the system is rigged the loser is the one that doesn’t have his hand in the cookie jar but how about we hold fuckers to a higher standard for once. How about we stop electing people that use the government to make themselves and their friends rich. Trump is nothing more than this cancer metastasized and invigorated through populist rhetoric and bullshit. He is the other side of Politicians like Clinton, he is the businessman that is buying them. At least he in honest about it though, but that doesn’t make it right and that isn’t something to celebrate him for.

 

I understand though. People are angry and they are telling you what you want to hear. You are angry and they have tapped into it but they are the in many ways the cause of the problems that cause your misery. Trump has been selling away the present while Sanders is taking the selling of your future and trying to mortgage it for a 7th time.

 

And while Trump is trying to sell you on Corporatism Sanders if trying to bribe you with free shit no one can afford. Free college, free health care, free housing and free food. Are you sure that it is free? If it is free than the people supplying you with this health care, food, college and what not are working for your benefit without getting paid. What is a person called when they work for someone else’s benefit but does not get paid for their labor? To be honest they couldn’t even be called a slave. See a slave still costs the owner money. Yes they work for their master but the master still must feed, house and clothe them. You are asking to get the labor from these people but aren’t even willing to house and feed your own slaves. How sad are you that you can’t even take on the minimal responsibilities of a slave owner? Slavery is horrible and slave owners are fucking scum but you are less. You want the slave to have to work to feed himself and you. It’s a whole new level of exploitation. In Serfdom the lords was at least expected to protect his subjects. Is this what you are doing?

 

I’m going to go with a big fat no. No you are not doing anything and you are not contributing anything but you expect everything.

 

Sanders promises cannot be paid for. It doesn’t matter how much to tax the rich they cannot be payed. We can’t pay for the stupid shit we do now no matter how much we raise taxes. But since you are an idiot that thinks the world revolves around you you don’t really care as long as you get your’s right? We need to lower spending. Do you know what the Laffer Curve is? If you don’t you have no business talking about economics and taxation. Hell most people that do know what it is still shouldn’t. It was a general theory. It works but you need to remember that it isn’t a set amount just something you need to understand and deal with. If you have no idea what I just said you might as well consider yourself illiterate when it comes to economics. I’m a bloody accountant. I can’t say I’m a genius when it comes to economics but I do understand the idea of financial incentives. If you don’t you should. But what I really understand is debt. Debt is something you need to be very carful with. Temporary debt can be used to put yourself in a better situation but continuous debt is never good. It isn’t good if you are a business, if you are an individual and it isn’t good if you are a government. Think about this. If a company goes under their resources can then be bought and then used by other people that can do something with them and make a profit and help grow the economy. An Individual can move into a smaller home and try to build themselves back up. A government cannot collapse and sell off their assets to someone else that will build them into something else. A government collapse destroys a nation and the wealth of a nation. Granted sometimes a nation can come back but ask the Roman, Persian, Ottoman, and Austrian Empires where they are now? Ask yourself what are the consequences of the collapse of those empires?

 

We can’t afford either of these two idiots.

21st Century Stupidity

I once dated a girl that was a hypochondriac and she owned a medical dictionary. The dictionary was at least 10 years old at the time and maybe more and how up to date is was is questionable but even that isn’t completely relevant to the point I am making. Here is the point.  A medical dictionary lists the name of a disease the cause(s) and the symptoms. It can be a handy reference but unless you are a trained Medical Doctor or other medical professional you should not even pretend to use it to diagnose someone especially not yourself. Do you know how many diseases list one of the symptoms as “congestion”, “fever”, or “upset stomach”? It is half of the fucking dictionary. Do you have a fever? Well flit to any page at random and that will be a symptom of at least one if the diseases listed, and sometimes all of them. Some diseases have the exact same symptoms but different causes and very different outcomes. Yes I understand that your lymph nodes are swollen, you have a headache and a fever but you do not have the Bubonic Plague you have the Flu. Have you been coughing all day? No you don’t have Tuberculosis is just the dust from the roadwork outside your office building.

Why have I brought this all up? Because motherfuckers are getting dumber and dumber by the minute, diagnosing themselves with more and more afflictions they do not have and in some cases don’t actually exist. Yes WebMD might be able to help you understand what a disease is and maybe convince you to see a bloody physician but it isn’t there for you to diagnose yourself and they fucking tell you that morons.

Why am I yelling about this? Well today I saw an article where some asshat claimed they had PTSD from an election that happened in 2008! Yes not only did this person get PTSD from an election they were still suffering from it almost 8 years later. They might have mental problems but PTSD is not it. And if that isn’t crazy enough half the fucking planet now has ADHD, Autism and thinks they are trapped in the wrong body. I’m really a woman, I’m really a horse, I’m really a dragon, I’m a vampire. No, no you are not. You are a confused kid trying to get attention or tying out for the Oppression Olympics and you have been doing it for so long you forgot how it all started. Shitty parents, praise without accomplishment everyone gets a trophy bullshit, narcissism, the complete disregard for reason and accountability and everything on Tumblr. It is an entire generation acting like rich 12-year-old girls with daddy issues only they are 27 and male! Fuck some of these idiots are in their 30’s or older. It is like Pajama Boy morphed into an even more annoying pile of first world problem crybaby shit. Fuck you the funny feeling you are having right now isn’t PTSD it’s the small part of your brain that hasn’t completely given up trying to tell the rest of you I’m right and getting punched in the face by the rotting cesspit you have turned the rest of your mind into. You claim you got PTSD from someone disagreeing with you on Twitter while millions are being enslaved, raped and murdered around the world. You have gone so far beyond First World Problems that we need to think up a new name for it. You have created a new religion of stupid. A religion without grace or set theology but a million gods who are supposed to worship at the alter of the Great and Special Snowflake that is You. This twisted faith, a faith of the damned are required to worship all the strange inanities and feeling in the vast and rotting abyss that has replaced your brains or face the unyielding wrath of the thousands screaming Special Snowflakes as all else is lies and heresy. You are a howling tsunami of lunatics. You have invented religions too silly even for the type of people that join suicide cults.

I know why some of you are so angry. Because deep down you know it’s all bullshit but you can’t admit it. You have created this vast and intricate web of lies and deities and entrenched yourself so deeply into it that to give up now would be betraying everything you have created about yourself. You can’t grow up and you can’t stop because once you admit you may have been wrong about one thing you may have to admit you are wrong about other things, maybe even everything and then you will not be just the heretic you rage against you will be the apostate. You are weak as you have never learned true suffering or how to be strong. You have an ego but no accomplishments, self esteem with no true sense of self worth, you are a god unto yourself but only the pawn in a raging mob self proclaimed deities in a never ending holy war no one controls or understands. It is a holy war that cannot be won since its goals are nebulous at the best of times, its target are constantly changing subject to the whims of whatever voice can shout loudest in the mob at any given second claiming the papacy of the cause whatever it might be this minute as its holy commandments and scripture never mean the same thing twice. If that isn’t a good enough explanation of it what is going on I’ll give you a better one.

You are all so all the way down into the rabbit hole of ideological bullshit that your head is so far up rabbits ass you are looking at the back of his teeth and calling the his cavities racists, sexists, misogynists and whatever other “ists” you made up today.

I hate it here…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rights of man

I would like to thank Xanhippa for the H/T because she knows whats up.  She lived under the Iron Curtain and came to the new world to find a better life.

And she found it.  What is your excuse?          

Orwell and the new world order.

Facts are irrelevant in history.  The only thing that matters is what you can convince the people to believe.  If you can convince the world the Tet Offensive was a victory for the Viet Kong then that will be the truth.  It will become the truth.  It will be the truth.  It doesn’t matter that the Tet Offensive practically wiped out the Viet Kong all facts that don’t fit your world view or political ideology can get flushed down the memory hole and you have won.  It doesn’t mater that the Crusades were a belated attempt to regain territory from the Moslem armies who had conquered them and drove out the original mostly Christian or Jewish inhabitants.  All that matters is what you can get people to believe.

Orwell was a prophet.  He just missed the year but his words should be a warning engraved on the minds of men for eternity.

Orwell spoke of the totalitarian systems of Communism and Nazism.  He agreed with neither while he did consider himself a English Socialist much of his writing can be used for an argument against much of Socialism and Progressive ideology.

Take this quote from Orwell on guns:

“THAT RIFLE HANGING ON THE WALL OF THE WORKING-CLASS FLAT OR LABOURER’S COTTAGE, IS THE SYMBOL OF DEMOCRACY. IT IS OUR JOB TO SEE THAT IT STAYS THERE.”

The people who call themselves “Progressives” don’t want you to know that their political ideology is Socialism.  That’s why they say Progressive rather then Socialist.  Orwell warned about how people twist language so politicians can get people to believe one thing but they really mean something else.  The Progressives just won’t tell you that’s what they really want is to disarm you so they use terms like “Gun Control”.  It sounds nice making laws against the use of arms however a criminal does not care about the law.  All you really have is laws that only affect law abiding peoples and not the criminal.  Yes Background checks are a good thing because it keeps known criminals from getting a gun at a legal store.  However the criminal will still try to get one on the black market and there is nothing we can really do about that.  What they really want to do is disarm the whole of the law abiding populace.  With arms even Orwell the man who claimed to be a Socialist knew that it was the duty of society to make sure that the people who he fought for had the ability to defend themselves from criminals and especially from the totalitarian dictatorships that he wrote of.

Orwell was a Prophet.  People misquote him and claim to know what he said but don’t.  Like Nitsche they will misquote him  for eternity.  They take a line or two and run with it without the lines that follow and makes the true point.

Case in point from Nitsche:

“God is dead.”

OK but what was the rest?

“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers? What was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet owned has bled to death under our knives: who will wipe this blood off us? What water is there for us to clean ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we have to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must we ourselves not become gods simply to appear worthy of it?”

Or this quote:

“What are these churches now if not the tombs and sepulchres of God?’

While he was chastising religion or more to the point those who only used the morals and teaching of religion when it was to their advantage, he was lamenting the lose of the religious morals in the idea of a world without the religious morals. That is why he wrote the second line “And we have killed him”. It was to the hypocrites that he spoke that.  He was lamenting the lose of morals and the hypocritical use of Gods teachings only when it was advantageous.  At the time he was also trying to come to terms with a world without the religious standard of morality and how to make a new morality without god but was just as moral so that we would not lose the good things that came from religion while being able to move past the necessity of God for our morality.  He needed the morality but was trying to find a way to have it without having to have if come from a god.  He might have been an Atheist but he understood the importance of morality of the Christian God and wanted to be able to justify himself and morality without the need for God.

But people take the “God is dead” statement and take it wrong.  He didn’t believe in the Christian God but he wanted to believe in the morality of the teachings and wanted to find a way to take both together.

It’s like Orwell.  He wanted to refute the time he was in.  Orwell spoke out against Totalitarianism and Monarchism.  He spoke of the working man and Socialism but it wasn’t what we think of now.  To him living in Europe he saw the difference between the working class and the aristocracy and he fought for the working class. But in America we don’t have an aristocracy or a real one anyway.  We have let some families fake like they are like the Kennedys, but thats only because some people let them and there is a difference.   Should we let them?  No but sadly we do.  However in America we never had the kind of class stratification you had in Europe.  In Europe the “Rich” where always going to be rich and the poor,  poor.  In America the poor could always make it rich all they had to do was work at it and it was going to happen just think of Andrew Carnegie a poor immigrant who turned himself into what at the time was the second richest man in history.  The man who would never give you a dollar but would build you a library so you could learn to do it yourself.  In America it could happen.  I say it could happen because it did.  You started work at 15 in some low paying crap job but at 40 your where a millionaire.  The American Dream was always possible. Orwell claimed to be a Socialist but often spoke and wrote like a Libertarian or a Classical Liberal.  The man wrote the book “Animal Farm” as a warning against his own ideology.  He was speaking to the Europe of his day but not to America.

Orwell understood that the people who could control language and what you could say could control the truth or at least control the truth of history that you believed.  It didn’t matter if it was true all that mattered is making you believe it was.

If Orwell was alive now he would have seen and yelled against the socialism that runs rampant in our society and how it works in today’s politics.  He would be a libertarian because he was the person who looked and watched the world and understood the times.  Now the socialism that seemed so nice at the beginning of the 20th century to him would look like the failure it is in the 21st.

Granted I can’t speak for a dead man but that is is my idea on how he would think today.  I would however give anything if I could talk to him now and see what he would really say about today’s world.
NOTE:  For anyone who noticed the similarities between the first paragraph of this article and a comment I made here I just want you to know that that I felt I needed to say more so I used that as the starting point.  I’ll probaly have more to say later after the Saki wears off…

Teacher goes after 5th grader to score cheep political points for Obama

This is a clip from a Swedish documentary.

So this is how teachers act in the classroom?  Attacking a child because the kids parents supported McCain and by extension the child does and then lying about and misrepresenting a quote from McCain to score cheep political points against a 5th grader.  Classy isn’t it?

Voter Fraud And Intimidation, Oh How Fun

Well there have already been reports of voter fraud and voter intimidation coming in.

In Philadelphia two members of the Black Panthers stationed themselves outside a polling station one of them had a billy club in his hands.  While they where finally removed by the police it’s not a good sign.

From Deroy Murdock of NRO I got this little nugget:

“GOP observers are calling in reports of multiple voting. People brazenly are coming in two or three times to vote,” he said, the exhaustion clear in his voice. “We may have an observer in one of every five or six precinct buildings, and they can see only so much. People are coming in where there are multiple registrations for the same address. Someone might say, ‘I’m Troy Jones at 123 Main Street,’ and then he’ll vote. Next, he will come back and say, ‘I’m Troy Jones, Jr. at 123 Main Street,’ then cast another ballot. Later on, a Troy Jones, Sr. registered at the same address gets to vote. This is why ACORN’s multiple registrations are such a problem.”

And this quote:

“People without proper ID are being allowed to vote. They are supposed to provide something like a utility bill. People who are not even properly registered to vote are being told, ‘Yeah. Go ahead. That’s close enough.’”

I swear I’m going to flip if McCain wins and the Democrats try to bring up the stollen election BS again.

Then there was the calls to many of the registered Republicans in Lancaster PA telling them the polling place was moved (it wasn’t).

More things from the TheKansasCitian.

Pontiac, MI – Republican poll watchers illegally tossed from Pontiac, Michigan polling locations. Reports are coming in that legal action is being taken to reinstate the poll watchers. [10]

Highland Park, NC – In Highland Park, North Carolina Obama supporters are shouting at and harassing voters. Poll managers are refusing to contain them and voters attempts to complain to the county election board have been unsuccessful. [11]

Cambridge, MA – Cambridge, Massachusetts polls accidentally used 2004 registration lists. The state’s Secretary of State has issued an apology. [12]

Well I guess ACORN is doing their job aren’t they…

Obama’s “Uncle Frank” was a drug dealing communist pedophile who knew?

Jerome R. Corsi at WorldNetDaily has a nice little article explaining all the happiness about one of Obama’s mentors.

Does Obama have any friends, mentors or coworkers that can’t embarrass him?  Really this guy has the worst judgment when it comes to friends.   By this point the pattern should be very obvious on the kind of people Obama hangs out to anyone who is really paying attention.  Yeah vote for Obama what could it hurt…
