PostHeaderIcon What Do Electronic Games, Religion And Drugs Have In Common?

Simple. They are all common methods for attempting to avoid facing reality (and these are by no means the only ones).

And, attempting to avoid facing reality is epidemic in our society. The alternative would be to acknowledge reality then admit that most of us simply do not have a clue how to deal with it.

Watch the talking heads on TV – even on FOX – and realize how often the discussions are total nonsense and totally disconnected from reality. Same with the so-called “debates”. The candidates argue over drivel and nonsense when there are real issues begging to be addressed before this whole mess explodes on us.

And, “explodes” may well be the operative word. We are actively aiding a nation of insane people, led by even more insane leaders, to acquire nuclear weapons, knowing full well that they will not hesitate to use them. In a reality-based world, the “leaders” in America who are helping these rogues would be identified as the traitors that they obviously are, then shot.

Instead, we are about to elect one of the worst of the bunch POTUS and hand her the keys to our own nuclear arsenal, knowing full well that she is criminally insane enough to trigger a nuclear exchange herself.

Note that I have twice used the term ”knowing full well”. I truly think that virtually all of us do know these things “full well”. But, using our various techniques for avoiding reality, we drive them from our conscious minds, in an attempt to relieve ourselves from the responsibility of doing anything to help change the fatal course we “know full well” that we are on.

Think about it.

    No question Troy that Hillary is insane. Very sick. Has demonstrated she is capable of anything to get what “she” thinks she should get. She needs to be in a gated hospital under treatment. She could very easily end our way of life. If elected we will be very fortunate if she doesn’t.

      Only if all the sheeple accept the premise, that since the “will of the people” expressed their desire/consent to her rule, the rest of us are somehow obliged to follow her off the cliff. Those hopelessly indoctrinated, by church and/or state alike, in the now dominant altruistic mindset, won’t be able to think outside of her collectivist box. ◄Dave►

    You all probably don’t want to hear it again; but I submit that the only rational thing we might be able to do to change said course, is to stop legitimizing the goddamned corrupt system, by participating in their phony elections theater. Voting for Tweedledee instead of Tweedledum, sure as hell isn’t ever going to fix what ails us, and I reckon that only the clueless sheeple don’t know that “full well,” also. Anarchy would be an improvement… ◄Dave►

      I think it far more effective for the productive to simply refuse to produce. Then the corrupt system will collapse into itself. With much pain for all involved of course which is why we haven’t already don it.

      That was Mother Ayn’s way and it worked — at least in the book. But then, her champions had that gulch thing going for them.

        That is impractical, Troy. The vast majority of producers earn a paycheck, from which their employer is required to withhold their taxes. They need their paycheck to feed their own families. Until employers can be somehow convinced to stop withholding, this arrangement will not change.

        If everyone just stopped voting, and held all politicians and bureaucrats in the utter contempt they deserve, employers might join in the revolt. As long as everyone thinks the system is legitimate, and are always looking forward to the next election, with hope for marginal change, nothing significant will. 🙁 ◄Dave►

    Perhaps it would be better eventually but I fear that, at the onset, it would be more like the O. K. Corral.

    I shudder at the thought of all those “incapables” suddenly denied their support systems.

      The poor SOB’s that have to survive in the cities are screwed. If and when the SHTF I plan on being much farther off the beaten path than it would be worth traveling to find me. If it’s winter good luck till spring. I keep telling my kids to get their families out of the city. They have 100 excuses to stay and they think I’m nuts anyway.

      Why? You don’t live in a ghetto-infested, Democrat-controlled, city. Let them burn the infernal places down. They don’t even have transportation to get to where you live, much less enough firepower to get past your neighbors. When it comes to civil war between city folk and country folk, my money is on the well-armed self-sufficient rednecks in flyover country, who are sick and tired of being forced to feed the shiftless vermin anyway. 😈 ◄Dave►

    Speaking of escaping reality…. Well the final 2016 presidential debate is “in the can” to use an old movie term. I intentionally planned my evening schedule to be sure I was comfortable and settled in to watch sure that something was going to happen that I would at least find entertaining. At about the half hour mark no luck. I suddenly realized that all I was watching was two people both completely and utterly unfit for the office of president of the United States argue over who was more unfit. The final hour of the debate was then much better from my perspective. See I spent it watching a rerun of Pawn Stars on The Discovery Channel. Sharpening our skills of barter at this point may be a much more worth while use of time.

    • I’m not sure what quality it is you’re looking for in the next president, but I’m not looking for someone to sit around looking presidential and stately. We need a wrecking ball to scatter the entrenched power structure. Hillary is the embodiment of that structure. Trump is that wrecking ball. Sure, he could make an embarrassing mess, but there’s no tidy way out of this. He has already defeated the Republican party. Now he just needs to beat the Democrats. We aren’t going to get another loudmouthed billionaire to play the system at great personal expense again next time. This feels like the last chance to end this without revolution.

        Extremely well said, Steel. Those conservatives who still care about the future of the USA, and have allowed themselves to be talked into the #NeverTrump position by the GOPe punditocracy, need to think long and hard about the binary choice they face. At this point, if Hillary defeats Trump, the GOP goes unceremoniously on the ash heap of history. Believe it or not; understand it or not; like it or not; Trump is doing America a great service. The only rational thing for those on the Right to do now, is allow him to finish the messy job he has started. It is the only hope for our posterity. ◄Dave►

        • Chris says:

          You get me wrong my friend. I was looking for Trump to demolish her. The half hour I watched showed no less than half a dozen opportunities for Trump to slam it out of the park. Best he could muster was pissing on her leg. Got tiring listening to two people not answer questions. Nothing new. But now I can tell you that a 1929 Gibson banjo is worth about 2,500 bucks, and the market for 70’s era custom Harley’s has declined.

          I’ll let Steel speak for himself; but for my part, I was reacting to:

          …completely and utterly unfit for the office of president of the United States…

          …and concurring with him that you appear to be looking for unimportant qualities at this juncture in our history.

          I, too, was very disappointed that he didn’t deliver a K.O., and in retrospect my time was wasted waiting for it; but the very last thing I would have done is change channels for some mindless entertainment. I would have probably invested the time in the latest book I am reading. 😉 ◄Dave►

        • Chris says:

          Well as you have pointed out and I agree. Trump has pretty much dispatched the GOPe. All well and good. The only problem is he’s only half done, and won’t/can’t finish the job. When the light comes on democrats scurry like cockroaches into the corners and under the cabinets. As far as mindless entertainment goes all I did was change venues to one that at least someone had a chance of coming out ahead.

        • I saw the last debate as Trump making a final play for turnout of single issue anti-Trump Republicans, and reducing the turnout of Democrats who say they dislike Hillary, but trump makes them “afraid”. He accomplished the former with strong words about the Second Amendment, late term abortion, Supreme Court nominations, and eight more years the same as the last (change). He accomplished the latter by being calm, not taking the bait when she tried to make him mad, being serious, technical, and not interrupting. If the media won’t give her scandals any play, then attacking her doesn’t get him much right now. He tried it with the video of her people organizing violence at his rallies, but it doesn’t seem like it went anywhere.

    That is a reasonable analysis, Steel. I guess I just wasn’t prepared for nuanced ‘strategery.’ After all the abuse he was taking over the ‘hot-mike’ tape, and all of the ignored Wikileaks corruption revelations, I expected him to make a point of hammering the rather effective new #DrainTheSwamp metaphor, which he had recently introduced. That he never even mentioned it, and continued to allow himself to be baited into self-defensive distractions, left me reluctantly scoring the debate a disappointing tie. I like your viewpoint better. 😉 ◄Dave►

  • If you want to see him hit her head on, his comedy routine at this dinner veered way out of comedy territory.

    I’m not sure it was a mistake though. In order to call him on it, the press needs to play what he said, and it’s the kind of issues they would normally bury. More free press, even if they spin it against him.
