New word from me:

Psycnic : Someone that sees the future and knowing that it was going to suck anyway

AZ Democrats are so concerned about my money that they’ll waste mine to tell me about it.

It’s a shame that the do not call list isn’t applicable at a state level.  It’s a shame that politicians and those acting on behalf of this  group of looters in suits are exempt anyway. 

To reiterate  I am not a democrat, a republican nor libertarian  any more so this isn’t partisan.

Today the AZ Democrats decided that their propaganda  outweighs my financial interest in not hearing from them. In short they behave like they know what’s best for you and you can  damn well pay for it.   Which is kinda neat given the subject matter.

I pay for my voip system per minute , ergo sending me a message  that I have to pay to retrieve is incurring a loss. Yes it’s a small loss but in the context of these economically illiterate assholes ( that would be the democrats)   telling me how much they care about the  little guy  is the last straw. ( you know the camel? he says hi how’s the wife and kids?)   Oh god yes won’t someone PLEASE think of the children?

They decided to call our phone to let us know that Mr Shaddeg is a mean wittle man and that I need to  lock up my kid’s candy jar asap.

“Not only has John Shadegg voted again and again to deny health care to
needy children, now he’s opposed to giving families a tax rebate to
jump start the economy,” Bittner said. “He’s completely blind to the
needs of Arizonans, and this country.”

OMG there’s 35 republicans with brains  ? Damn that’s shocking.   Frankly it doesn’t matter we’re scroomed ( screwed and doomed) either way.   Keep it up folks   Gold at 1000 soon:D

Just in case I don’t pass approval  with this one. Here’s the reply to the last comment which has yet to be approved.

I don’t use drugs. ( I’m just not opposed to those that do) Strike 1:
I was “attacking” your incorrect ideas  and not the person holding
them.   I’m very much anti state.All the woes you try to lay at my
feet are caused by them. Yeah  I’m sorry I made such  a mess in the inner city.

I’m not even from the USA  your  presumption of privilege based on
some atavistic fantasy of my family lording it over the poor  is your
second strike.

Lastly I’m an anarcho capitalist. If you must hate me  at least do it
for the right reasons.

So rather than being pleasant and discussing ideas lets talk about
your claim to love mankind and help them when you can’t even take an
obvious case like Anton-wilson  and apply   his philosophy correctly,
regardless of wether you agreed with it or not.

Thank you, I can  do without you, and your friends, modeling society
for me when you can’t apparently control your anger at the world
without attacking a commenter on your blog that holds a contrary
opinion.

You have no idea which non profits I assist, no idea which causes I
lend technical assistance to  and no basis in reality for your claims
that I am oblivious to severe structural issues within my adopted
nation.  We just don’t agree on remedy that’s all.

That’s the problem with  collective solutions you can’t see
individuals and  have decided to take me for that which I am not.   A
key lesson that RAW had to offer and one which is never going to take
with someone stuck in the Fnords  of  gender, race  or  perceived
privilege

Good Times and Bad Times in Lost America: An interesting tidbit about Robert Anton Wilson—he despised democracy

Oh damn it looks like I have gone and made a friend:) Socialist calls me out as a white priviliged stoner!

It’s been a while since a comment  of mine made somebody’s  day.  Hell it made such an impression that  I got my very on post: Seemingly the best way to deal with individuals is to lump them into one group you can dismiss as  “them”   My “themness” is based on my colour , income and advocacy for individual rights in the form of allowing people to  control what they put into their body. Oddly many of the same people that hate the latter idea are way too happy when it’s regulating things that come out of a body. I digress.  Where I think he’s wrong is that it’s statism that’s the enemy regardless on how you get their  by vote or by violence.  ( Really the first is a thin proxy for the latter)  It’s the collective, the large group the kind of people that have  left thoughts from thoughts that should have been left back in the 20th C. The Century that more people died at the hands of the state, any state  than  any time prior. 

Good Times and Bad Times in Lost America

Here’s an interesting interchange between a commenter and myself coming from the post where I pointed out that Robert Anton Wilson very clearly denounced democracy as having caused more casualties than Nazism and Stalinism combined.

Pulling out does have benefits. Gov. Napolitano abstains from throwing good money after “bad”

It’s nice to see that effectiveness is now being used as a measure of spending.  I’m almost all ready to praise the Governor but  it’s really qualified.   Why now? I can’t think of a case where abstinence only education has been effective. So why piss away money  when we could supposedly afford this rather than take a stand now that the state has a rather large budget shortfall?  I can only hope that the war on some drugs gets the same kind of review.

Napolitano: Abstinence funds were not worth it

For years, the only thing some Arizona teens have been taught about sex is that they shouldn’t be having it.

Gov. Janet Napolitano said this week that the abstinence-only message just isn’t good enough.

Once you think black, as in votes, you can’t go back to treating people as individuals. Cnn Again.

Updated: added link to apology.

It’s been a week since I saw an apology on CNN’s site with regards to their hinting at the black women would be conflicted in the Democratic primary because.

  • Obama is black
  • Hillary is a woman

Yep to the mainstream media outward physical appearance is your sole basis for picking the person you believe will steal from you less.

Or more realistically steals in the manner you would do so yourself if you had the balls to do it without hiding within the mob. ( called taxation people )

Anyway let’s see how sincere CNN were with their apology. Look at today’s headline story.

Sen. Barack Obama is facing a crucial test of support within the
Democratic Party, as polls opened Saturday in a race in which more than
half the voters are expected to be African-American.

And yeah so what? Is democracy really that bankrupt? Are black women so homogenized that gender and race define their thought process ? Yes on the former and no on the latter. The only people suffering from groupthink seems to be MSM outlets that are getting away with magical thinking in lieu of reporting.

E.g

I bet those guys think that the weather maps they show actually creates the weather.

love it or leave it? You guys are not making this easy. To think one can go to jail for stealing $1200 but stealing billions is lauded

Ok on the face of it I am totally fucking spitting at this. 

I earn more than 75k, have my  tax bill  in front of me for the year.  Seemingly rebates are not for me, I’m not middle class , I’m rich..   Er bull fucking shit.   My real income is  well  under 75k by the time It’s taxed  Federally, locally, state, on my phone, my gas my .well you know the list.  The only nice thing is that I hope these policies fail so  miserably that my counter measures to the $ going foom are increased  many fold . 

Taxpayers would get checks under economic stimulus plan – CNN.com

Those who earn up to $75,000 individually or up to $150,000 as a couple will be eligible for the payments, said Republican and Democratic sources familiar with the tentative deal.

Another bitty post. Mlk day and Hockey

This was a long weekend due to  MLK day.   I’d love to  pick up that hot potato but frankly you can pick your own version of the man. I’m just convinced that we should not be so happy as to call this equality by any stretch of the imagination.    This country is so far away from  treating people by the content of their character but instead attempts to treat them based on atavistic ass hattery, having the right combination of chromosomes , which invisible friend they have and a myriad of seemingly hardwired behaviors  that have people acting as  a walk on part in their own life.  ( Notice we often talk about the lessons we need to learn? )

Here’s a view that may seem over simplistic but seems to fit most of my experiences with groups .Welcome to the monkey sphere.

Onto something happy.   Today was a matinée  ice hockey game.   Dobh was in attendance and was  being wickedly cute, and  while a bit difficult he took a three hour trip pretty well. He howls  along to each score for the home team. He had a lot of opportunity today🙂    This is the first time in  over a decade  I’ve made a point of watching a sport that wasn’t a national event such as Wimbledon or the Super bowl. The fan attire fits me nicely, there’s a level of skill immediately apparent that I can’t discern in baseball and I don’t even want to get into professional  football. I live in Phoenix for fucks sake 😉   Even though I never had a sporting background. I still had to play  rugby, soccer and hockey at school , I lived in the country with one non driving parent. It wasn’t that big a deal we could only afford one car.( you tell the kid’s that today and they won’t believe you </python>
 so it wasn’t really an option.

I’m wondering if any guide to influencing people is effective if they’ve already gained many years experience of you. I’m wondering if you start pushing their influence and compliance buttons how well they spot it? Do we really have to play the game of crafting onion requests to have people agree to the what looks like a concession but hey, that’s what we wanted you to think anyway. Maybe that’s why APS keep asking for insane increases to make us all happy when instead of screwing us they use lube first.

So here I am reading in parallel Tom Robbins Still Life with the  woodpecker( 5th time round, a book on influence the psychology of persuasion by Robert Cialdini , a book on how organizations are inherently evil,Calculated  chaos by Butler Shaffer and have just finished The invisibles book, kissing Mr Quimper, by Grant Morrison. Is it any I wonder how I can’t finish a sentence around people without trailing off?

It’s hard to rein in new applications of information in the short term which sadly is about the only timespan most American’s work on. They miss the here and now because they are so fucking anxious for it to arrive that they miss it going by. ADD makes perfect sense here I think Rushkoff’s take on this being an adaptive strategy to the messages hitting you daily is closer to the truth than would be convenient for those making a living from the effects of it.

Ok since this is a dump post.

People that haven’t read Violent Acres are missing out.

Penn Jillette has started vlogging over at Cracker.com rather than link directly check out the header on the referring blog is worthy of your consideration.

And this defense of liberty by yeah I say this for humor value “Canadian” since freedom to me isn’t border related but cultural. Via Ernunnos but then every damn blog I read the day after;) This would have been awesome had it been a scripted show. That it’s reality , Alberta a Canadian one ,made my Sunday. We’re talking about beating out Summer Glau kicking ass in the Sarah Connor chronicles too. I’m watching hockey, getting intellectual stimulation from Canadians, other than Bear Naked Ladies ,and listening to a CBC series called how to think about science. I’m stuck in the land of the hot dog between a rock hard tortilla and a Tim Horton’s place.

Everybody seems to be down with some kind of sickness. Media
