“And may the odds be always in your favor”

… from the Hunger Games.

Hopefully that’s not a prophetic movie.

Any time I thought about, the odds were NEVER in MY favor. Always the house!

“May The Force Be With You”

Such an elementally simple concept. Hmm, isn’t the essence of humanity? All we have is OUR life force.

INTERESTING: ‘WOMEN ARE DEFICIENT’; really?

FEMALE CANDIDATE FOR EGYPTIAN PARLIAMENT: ‘WOMEN ARE DEFICIENT IN INTELLIGENCE’ AND IT IS ‘NOT PERMISSIBLE FOR THEM TO BE IN AUTHORITY’

# – # – #

I’m not a “wym’s libber”. (I’d like to thought of as a “libber” wanting everyone — boys and girls — “to be all that they can be”. Rocket scientist, brain surgeon, or even Heaven Forbid a fat old white guy injineer.) And, I firmly believe that Giving Women Suffrage created Organized Crime (i.e., vote = prohibition = organized crime) as well as energized the “Secular Progressive” movement that caused many of the problems today.

That all being said, we here in the USA had best hope that these other countries don’t see the error of their ways. Islamic burqas. sex selection abortions, discrimination against women in professions, education, and property — all mean that we in the USA are competing against foes with half the human resources either wasted or destroyed.

Stories like this demonstrate that this is the baby elephant trained not to escape. Hook up a stout chain to a baby pachyderm. Then the adult can be held with a very breakable rope.

Hopefully it will be generations before these bozos can reenergize their lost capacity of women. In the case of sex-a-cide, that capability is lost forever.

How stupid is this?

Argh!

8 Tools That Will Change Your Life: The Hold On to Your N.U.T.s Book Giveaway
by Wayne M. Levine

*** begin quote ***

Tool #3: Cooperate Without Compromising Your N.U.T.s

Men get angry and resentful when they agree to something that compromises who they are, what they stand for. Men who have developed their N.U.T.s – non-negotiable, unalterable terms, have no problem cooperating as long as they’re not asked to compromise what’s important, their non-negotiable, unalterable terms. Men who have not developed their N.U.T.s are likely to not cooperate at all because they live in constant fear of being compromised – they feel they must defend themselves. But when a man use this Tool, he can show up as the man he wants to be in his relationships at home, at work and in his community.

Great advice. Should have had it decades ago!

* Add-ons?

* Lifestyle?

INITIALISMS: TANSTAARTHC — There ain’t no such thing as a right to health care

Wednesday, July 29, 2009

http://www.ncc-1776.org/tle2009/tle528-20090719-02.html

There ain’t no such thing as a right to health care

by F. Paul Wilson

*** begin quote ***

On a desert island, you still have the right to free speech. And freedom of religion. And freedom of sexual expression. You also have the freedom to smoke or inject whatever available substances you care to.

You do not have the right to three squares a day because there are no farmers to provide them; you do, however, have a right to grow or forage whatever you can. You don’t have a right to a roof over your head because no carpenters live on the island, but you do have a right to erect one.

And you don’t have a right to health care because doctors and nurses and drugstores don’t exist on the island.

No point in belaboring this. Genuine human rights do not require the participation of anyone outside the individual. Anything that does require the aid or intervention of another party is something else. I’m not sure what it is, but it’s not a human right.

*** end quote ***

The author correctly ids the corruption in our language and our thinking.

If you have a positive right, who pays for it?

That is the crux of the issue!
