Dear Politicially Undecided: Where is America's Political Insanity Coming From?


I told the story before, but I'll tell the story again, but many years ago when Cappy was but a young 20 something in Minneapolis, it was a near-guarantee he would be the only non-leftist at the various house parties he attended.  In part because of his peer group's age, in part because of Minneapolis' politics, he was almost always guaranteed to be the sole non-left at a party.

Sure enough this presented some social hurdles to clear in that sooner or later, usually in the midst of macking on some girl, a pansy, limp-wristed guy would come up to the Captain and tell the girl he was trying to woo that "did you know he's a REPUBLICAN!!!!???"  Sure enough this would bring Cappy's Cary-Grant-level romantic advances to a screeching halt as the object of his affection would then start to interrogate him instead of waiver between going home with him.

To combat this the Captain would burn CD's (because that was the technology in the day) with various economic data so when the party he was at decided to gang up against him, he could point to the data, charts, and graphs empirically proving he was right, they were brainwashed, and perhaps they could reconsider their political and philosophical positions in life...and that cute redhead would go home with him.

Fat chance.

All that would happen is not much different than what happens today.  If you didn't go with the crowd, if you didn't believe in socialism, if you didn't vote DFL/democrat, then you were a racist, hated women, murdered kittens, and punched puppies.

And so I learned early on that you simply cannot convince leftists or any ideologue who subscribes to a particular political religion because they did not go out and study charts, graphs and data like the humble Captain did.  Just like religion, they CHOSE to believe in said unsubstantiated political-religion and there's no way to convince somebody when they simply "choose."

Therefore, I'm laying down a challenge to those of you who are undecided, centrists, or are just apolitical.  And that is to simply entertain...

one
simple
painfully clear

observation.

"Where on the political spectrum is America's current day political insanity coming from?"

Taking politics out of it, you have to admit that it seems American politics has become increasingly insane.  Everyday in the news the internet seems to drudge up ever increasing and ever-more political insanity that not only makes you shake your head, but makes you worried about America's future.  And though there is no way to neatly categorize these news stories, after some thought and consideration I've managed to come up with roughly 4 general categories you're almost guaranteed to see a new news story about insanity in American politics.

The first category is feminism.

Like the other three categories there is a limitless number of examples of political insanity.  There was the pussy hat protests where women knitted pink hats, made to look like a woman's vagina, and they marched on DC to protest the election of Donald Trump.  Closely related are slut walks that have nothing to do with the election of Donald Trump but is a favorite past time of feminists where they dress like sluts and march in public because women should be allowed to wear whatever they want without attracting the attention of men, specifically in the form of sexual assault and harassment.  There's the fake rape epidemic epitomized by the University of Virginia's false rape accusation further perpetrated by an article in Rolling Stone magazine.  But this should have been prevented had you followed Antioch's sexual consent policy where a man must ask, at each stage of sexual progress, permission to hold a girl's hand, put his hand on her shoulder, kiss her, and (GASP) maybe even fornicate!  To top it all off, then there's feminists just yelling and screaming at the sky when Trump is elected, or (if you wish to be more formal about it) you put together an event where you communally yell at the sky to commemorate Trump being elected.

Second, and somewhat closely related, the ever increasing number of sexes.

10 years ago there was straight, bi and gay. Today, 63.

There are, of course, not 63 genders.  There are three.  Straight, bi and gay.  The remainders are variations, derivations, and permutations of the aforementioned, introducing concepts like "sapio sexual" (being attracted to intelligent people) which are nothing more than splitting hairs.  But while you'd think nobody would really believe in these ever-increasing number of genders, oh how mistaken you were.  For not only does creating new genders make worthless academics feel like they're doing something for that taxpayer government grant you gave them, it also gives valueless people something to glom onto providing them false worth.

"I'm a pansexual androgine lesbian!"
"I'm a Masculine Bisexual Androfemale!"

Well good for you. Do you have a job?  Do you support yourself?  Are you majoring in engineering?  Do you pay taxes?

And what you'll find out is they don't...but they do have that obscure gender nobody else does!  And that's gotta count for something!  Right???

The result is largely what you're witnessing among confused millennials where you have emasculated men, masculinized women, nobody having dates or sex, and an explosion in other forms of differentiation (yet no production).  Tattoos, piercings, and (my all time favorite form of body mutilation) ear gauges.

This would be funny if it weren't for the fact these people insist on foisting their religion of pseudo-gender on the rest of society via law.  Do you remember the transgender bathroom fiasco Americans were forced to endure?  What about that bakery that was forced (then fined for not) baking a cake for a gay couple on religious grounds?  It's all cute fun and games until you're forced through law NOT to acknowledge their sexual preference (which you should), but rather to obey these people's pseudo-gender religion and dance to their tune.

Third, racism and sexism any one?

The pinnacle example is privilege.  It originally started with "white privilege" and "male privilege," but soon rapidly expanded (just like the number of genders) to include any other traits or variables normal, middle of America, Americans had.

Able-bodied privilege.
Mental health privilege.
Financial privilege.
Christian privilege.
Hetero privilege.

The insanity gets to be so much that unless you are a minority, non-straight female (or hermaphrodite) in a wheel chair who is not a Christian or hails from wealth...

then you should feel ashamed, guilty, and need to pay more in taxes.

Examples of political racism/sexism borne insanity doesn't end there.  If you're part of BLM you apparently have the right to block interstates.  Women will never seem to stop complaining about the wage gap, just as they never seem they'll ever be willing to major in subjects that will actually CLOSE the wage gap.  We're going to remove George Washington's pew from a church because he owned slaves 250 years ago.  And apparently women are so oppressed they can't afford birth control, so you better afford it for them.

This isn't to say racism and sexism hasn't existed in the history of this country or the world, but the above have nothing to do with race, but mental illness mixed with entitlement and a professional level of playing the victim for preferential treatment while cowardly hiding behind the genuine suffering of those who genuinely endured racism and sexism in the past.

And perhaps the most psychotic of them all - academia.

Here (like sexual harassment complaints) you can find a new and exciting example of mental illness coming out of America's colleges and universities EVERY DAY.

"Safe spaces," "triggering," "micro-aggressions," the aforementioned false rape accusation epidemic, all while you the taxpayers are guaranteeing these kids' worthless degrees.

The result is a generation of both professors and students who just refuse to adhere to reality or grow up, living in a state of perpetual adolescence.

Evergreen College's "day without whites."
Mizzou's racist temper tantrum in 2015 over...well, whites and privilege.
Dr. Jordan Peterson's refusal to use fake "zhe/zher" pronouns "triggered" precious Canadian college students.
And you just have to consult The College Fix to see a well-documented litany of higher education's complete unhinging from reality and its further sinking into the depths of insanity.

Now, I could go on, but, my fine centrist, politically undecided friend, riddle me this....

from where in the political spectrum is this literal mental insanity coming from?

I know, I know, back in the 80's you had to worry about the "religious right."  Nancy Reagan might have told you not to do drugs and Christians prefer you not abort your children.  And I know, I know, some right wing idiots protested in Charlottesville several months ago.

But in the totality of mental illness and insanity this country is drowning in, is it coming from the right or the left?  The democrats or the republicans? The socialists or the capitalists?

The answer is simple.  The left has a COMPLETE monopoly on the political mental illness that is currently infecting (or trying to infect) the country.  The left TOTALLY owns the insanity you see coming across the news wires daily.  It is the left that screams at the sky, feeds their infants all vegan diets, claim "Baby It's Cold Outside" is rapey, conjure up ideas like "safe spaces, ne'er leave academia to work in the real world, force people to use transgender bathrooms, force people to violate their religion, force people to use "genderless pronouns," and in general act like the world's most spoiled group of insolent, petulant little brats it has ever known, AND if you don't obey them, they threaten you with fees, fines, jail, the law, and force.

This is not an argument that you should all go out and become card-carrying republicans today.  Nor is it to say the right is not without its problems.  I am merely trying to point out which side of the political spectrum is leaving you alone to do as you please, while the other is demanding you do things for them, pay things for them, even demanding you THINK like them and if you don't, they will punish you.

Consider this the next time there's an election.

When the Mainstream Media Says There's a Bubble in Bitcoin....Is There?


Another curious observation I had about bitcoin. 

It's meteoric rise recently has made every MSM outlet an expert and alarm sounder about bitcoin, it's risks, and how bubbly it is.  But then it dawned on me...

Wasn't it these same people that couldn't see the housing bubble right in front of their faces in 2007?
Weren't these the same guys that would laud the latest Dotcom IPO, measuring its value in terms of Price to SALES because there were no earnings or profits in 1999?
Isn't is the same people who painfully, tooth-pullingly, are sheepishly admitting in 2017 that there MAY just be an education bubble?

You have the New York Times, Fast Company, even TIME for god's sake, nearly every tapioca pudding, dying MSM rag warning about bitcoin...

but these guys couldn't tell you when there WAS an actual bubble the past three times when these bubbles were slapping their dicks in these journalists' faces.

This makes me wonder, since their ability to predict and identify bubbles is so bad, wouldn't this actually be a GOOD sign for Bitcoin?  A vote for the camp that bitcoin is NOT a bubble?

The reason I bring this up is because journalists and journalism majors are horrible economists.  They're bandwagoners.  They're not capable of genuine thought and haven't been since the damn 60's.  This doesn't mean that I don't think bitcoin is in a bubble (I frankly have no clue what the price should be), but I do know your average journalist banging out these dire warning articles about bitcoin doesn't understand how block chain technology can revolutionize the world's financial system, doesn't understand the economics behind currencies, and sure the hell can't grasp the concept of a digital ledger system. 

So why (aside from a classical exponential price) do you think it's a bubble?

Truth is I own some bitcoin, but it's more like a lottery card for me.  A bit of fun to see where this technology might go and someday I can tell my grandnieces when "ole Uncle Clarey owned bitcoin."  But if it's the industry wide consensus amongst journalists that Bitcoin is overvalued, I can hardly think of a better endorsement that it isn't.

How Valerie Johnson Perfectly Defines White Privilege


If you didn't know, one of the local suburban mayors here - one Valerie Johnson - had a meltdown when she was challenged on "white privilege" during a city council meeting.  There's not much to say about her (as there's surprisingly little about her on the internet),  but I am not here to analyze her politics or to administer her The Clarey Test.  There is more important role she serves and that is she allows us to truly understand what "white privilege" is so that instead of rolling your eyes the next time a leftist brings it up or blindly believing it as a liberal or leftist, we know exactly what we're talking about and we can actually move the concept forward and make tangible progress in improving race relations.

First, notice it is largely leftist white people who are the most ardent supporters of white privilege.  Certainly non-whites may believe in the concept, just as women would be prone to believe in "male privilege," but when it comes to race notice it's most ardent cheerleaders are not blacks, hispanics, latinos, or Asians, but whites, typically in public positions.  Mayors, congressmen, professors, university administrators, media types, even white people on social media.  As long as the spot light is on them, they all eerily seem to really care about "white privilege."

This should raise the hairs on non-whites who believe in "white privilege" and raise the eyebrows of nearly everybody.  Why is it white public figures all of the sudden have jumped on the white privilege bandwagon these past 5 years, while nearly no white person when asked in private believes in white privilege.  There is something about being in public that forces you to believe in white privilege, bringing up the prospect that you really don't believe it deep down inside at all.  And that missing variable is "acceptance."

Acceptance for what?

Well acceptance for your own personal advancement.

For example, it's very clear why mayoral candidates and other politicians claim to believe in white privilege - it gets them the minority vote.  Notice how the entire New Brighton City Council is all white.  Or how Minneapolis' former mayor was white too (but couldn't shut the f up about "privilege" her entire administration).  Odd they believe so much in white privilege because if they did, they'd give up their seat and allow some non-whites to serve.

But it's not relegated simply to candidates for public office paying lip service to minorities to win their vote (the democrats have been doing that to blacks for years!).  Take for example universities.  Universities have be lauding their white-privilege and diversity credentials for about the past 2 decades under the premise they want to help minorities close the wage gap.  And they intend to do that by providing minorities college educations that will lead them to great careers.

But do they?

In reality universities, and ESPECIALLY programs like "African American Studies" completely scam minority students out of their money simply to enrich themselves. I  don't have to highlight the score of articles written about some poor minority college student who wasted $150,000 on some worthless liberal arts degree or got some kind of law degree in "social justice" endebting them an additional $200,000 in debt, and now can't find a job.  Up front and with all the lip service, yes, these university professors and administrators all seemed to want to help non-whites, because.. "well of course!  They SAID they believe in white privilege!"  But in hindsight they simply robbed minorities (and especially women I might add) out of 100's of thousands of dollars and 4 to 8 years of their youth.  The ulterior motive of public white people who stand by "white privilege" could not be any clearer.

And then there's just popularity.  This is more the domain of social media and celebrity types.  Angelina Jolie and others who adopt minority children are merely virtue signaling to show you what good, open-minded, non-racists they are (even though they don't give a damn about the children).  The infamous Amy Biehl murder, whose parents forgave her black murderers, is another example of putting your popularity above...well, nearly everything else.  But more commonly you just have to go to your average white woman/girl under 30's social account and she will more than likely, and loudly, proclaim how much she believes in white-privilege and can't wait to welcome some refugees into the country.  Again, the hair on the back of your head should go up when a drunk white girl tries to tell you how much you're oppressed and how much she loves minorities because she's doing it for popularity and herself, not you.

This ultimately is what defines white-privilege (or any political concept of privilege).  It is a tool to win over non-whites so that that person may advance themselves individually.  The problem though is blaming white people does nothing tangibly to improve the plight of minorities (hello democrat party?  hello detroit?)  Worse, it wrongly diagnoses the problem minorities, women, or other victims of privilege face, ensuring their problem is never solved and their lives never improve.

For example, you can take the TOTALITY of ALL the written works about racism and white-privilege, be it academic studies, journals, news media, social media and political speeches, etc., as to why minorities (bar Asians and middle-easterners and a handful of other races) make less than whites.  It would be MILLIONS of pages long with hundreds of billions of words.  And you could take all of it that has been written, read, or discussed over the past 30-40 years.

None of that will help minorities as much as the following microscopic bit of advice:

Do not have kids you can't afford.
Do not major in stupid stuff.
Do not get in trouble with the law.
Get good grades.
Wait until you're married to have kids.

You could take the same totality of everything that has been written about men and women, and sexism and misogyny.  Which going back to the Susan B. Anthony/Elizabeth Stanton days would go back a hundred years.  All the books written, all the screeds on feminist pages, all the words women's studies professors have said as to why women are oppressed, and let's just throw in the protests and "slut walks" to boot.

None of that will help women as much as the following few bits of advice:

Don't become a single mother.
Don't major in stupid stuff.
Learn math, IT, STEM, and programming.
Stay in shape.
It's alright to want a husband and kids.
It's alright to be feminine.
Your beauty will leave you some day.

And these two different bits of advice for two presumably oppressed groups exposes "white privilege" (and the white people who ardently claim to believe in it) for what it truly is.

Cowardice.

I have absolutely no reservations about telling people, minority or not, female or not, the truth.  No matter how harsh, the truth is a better medicine than the most sweet tasting of lies because it is the truth.  It is reality.  And any decisions made from or based in truth is going to be infinitely better and more successful than decisions made in lies.  So the medicine may taste harsh, but it WILL solve the problem and it WILL, over the long run help out the intended recipient more than a lifetime of feelings-sparring lies.

But to tell the truth takes courage.  In the context of "privilege" you have to face accusations of racism or sexism if you don't tell a political group what they want to hear.  Heck, you can be part of the group yourself and you'll be called a traitor, an "Uncle Tom" even threatened and assaulted.  But liberal, leftist, democrat white people simply do not have the courage NOR DO THEY CARE ENOUGH ABOUT MINORITIES to take this risk and tell them the truth.  They are cowards.  And not only are they cowards, their ultimate goal, their ulterior motive was never about advancing or tangibly helping minorities or women.

It was just to get your vote, money, acceptance, or popularity from you.

Therefore, I ask any minority of female who believes in privilege to consider these things. I'm not saying you DON'T have to believe in privilege or certain groups of people have it better off than you. What I'm imploring you to do is ask what REALLY is driving this odd choir of democrat white people to fervently, and ironically, universally claiming to believe in white privilege.  They ultimately do NOT have your best interests at heart and Valerie Johnson epitomizes this, ultimately defining what "white privilege" is.

BLM Surprisingly Silent

Beause

1.  This isn't supposed to happen and
2.  It doesn't fit the narrative of professional victimhood.

Goodbye Al "Fuckhead" Franken

Sorry Al, if you were better looking and more charming like Bill Clinton you could have fucked whoever you wanted and the democrat women would have still loved you.

Or Maybe Laura Davies Should Just Raise Her Fucking Children

I love how the BBC doesn't provide the author's name in the article or allow for comments.

South America's Hillary Clinton

Though what originally attracted me to this story was that Kirchner (Fernandez) might actually get arrested, the story mentioned the ex-president was sworn in as a senator last week.  After her disastrous running of Argentina you'd think she'd retire and just go on off and enjoy her grandchildren and Botox, but no.  All evil people have in life is foisting their evil on others.

A Literal Economic Intepretation of Bitcoin

Participate with me, if you will, on a simple mental exercise about supply and economics. 

As bitcoin approaches $12,000 (may have even passed it by now) there is much hubbub and discussion about it, from some economists that are old and don't understand crypto-currencies to vested-interest parties who will champion cryptocurrencies to enrich themselves.  But to more simply understand bitcoin (or any crypto-currency) let us simply do what we all learned in the 4th grade and....

divide.

To be literal, the exchange rate for all currencies should be a simple division between the global supplies of currencies.  You take the number of yen, you take the number of dollars, you divide them into each other and you have the LITERAL exchange rate of the currency pair.  You take the number of Euros, the number of Rubles, divide and that's the literal exchange rate.  Naturally there's other future-looking variables that determine the value of a currency.  If you're a leftist moron living in Venezuela or an idiot tyrant who hates white people in Zimbabwe, you'll just print off more money (because that always worked) and that will negatively affect the exchange rate of your currency.  But in a literal sense the global supply of any two things should be their literal and mathematically precise exchange rate.

Carats of diamonds to tons of dirt.
US dollars to barrels of oil.
Silver to cement. 
It can be done for anything.

However, bitcoin presents an even easier calculation.  Whereas the amount of cement made and the ounces of silver mined is yet to be determined, bitcoin is finite in that there will only be 21 million of them ever in existence.  So you only need to take the supply of any currency and find out how many units of that currency there is globally per bitcoin and you in theory have a price (inter-currency demand differences duly noted).  And with roughly 4 trillion in US dollars in circulation that gives us

$186,000 US dollars per bitcoin.

Now there are other arguments as to why bitcoicn and cryptocurrencies have value.  And (though I own bitcoin) I'm not terribly sure it has yet reached the full faith and acceptance as a universally accepted medium of exchange.  But to introduce some simple math into the debate we need to realize we HAVE tripled the money supply since the financial crisis and the debate I contend is not so much the value of cryptocurrencies or bitcoin, but rather the declining value of paper money we keep printing off. 

This isn't to say that tomorrow the price of bitcoin should be $186,000.  It may or may not.  I'm merely pointing out there's 186,000 dollars out there in the world for every bitcoin...and that number is increasing as we print ourselves out of financial deficits.

I'll leave the speculation about bitcoin's price to the rest of you to discuss.

Why I Recommend the Military

Boys, wish my old man told me to join.  I didn't.  Consider it.  And this cartoon, though from the 50's, is no less pertinent today.


Women Can't Do "The Maths"

When you girls acknowledge majoring in stupid shit is why you don't make as much as men, then we'll talk.  In the mean time, I am not going to heed your flawed claims "sexism" is why you don't make as much as men.  You CHOOSE easier degrees that are...well..dumber than fuck.  And when you stop acting "dumber than fuck" then I'll entertain arguments men are discriminating against you.  In the meantime...you're just dumber than fuck.

Privatizing Marriage

I always wondered why the government has ANY say in marriage whatsoever.  I'm sure it has to do with women needing men with guns to force men who banged them to pay money forever because, well marriage is essentially a very complicated and expensive version of prostitution. 

BUT!!!

In an adult real world, theoretical place where intellectual honesty reigned supreme and we could have serious and adult conversation, I always wondered "what if I just got married privately and told the government to fuck off because it wasn't the public's business and I don't need no stupid fucking license."

SHOCK! Liberal Art Major Single Moms With Inflexible Schedules Can't Find Work!

The amount of stupid and ignorance in this article is just more proof as to how refusing to tell people (particularly women and single moms) the truth about degrees and having kids in a broken home has consequences, none of which are good.  It makes me truly wonder if people in the media actually care about these people and just don't have the spine to tell them they fucked up, or if they're that stupid and actually believe majoring in "international studies" which having a kid out of wedlock has no ramifications for your employability.

Oh well, enjoy the decline.

The Left Punishes Itself...Mercilessly and Horribly


I was talking to a buddy today.  He was upset as he recently got into a Facebook war with a leftist friend of his.  I can't remember the precise topic they disagreed on, but he was so flustered he was debating leaving facebook or at least giving up making political posts for good.  I concurred with his decision and said, "Look, you're not going to change their minds, you're only going to make yourself more angry.  So you might as well give up and enjoy the decline."

He agree, but said, "Yeah, it just angers me that they don't get it.  They just think more of other people's money will solve their problems.  Or that it's the rich's fault for their own stupid mistakes.  They never stop to think about it, plus they get bailed out all the time!"

I asked, "Well how old is this gal?  Is she a single mom?  And how poor is she?"

He confirmed all three of my suspicions.  "She's about 46, single mom, lives in a crappy part of St. Paul."

To which I responded, "Soooo...don't you think she's suffering enough?"

And it is here a vitally important lesson all libertarians, republicans, conservatives and other "simply not leftists" need to learn.  For if we don't realize this very important lesson we will let the leftists we know ruin our lives by forcing us to steep and stew in the erroneous belief that leftists somehow live blissful lives, completely unaffected and unaccountable for their erroneous beliefs and horrible mistakes derived from those beliefs.

For example, my buddy is not the only one to have a leftist facebook friend.  Many years ago I too had a facebook friend.  She was a single mom, aged horribly, got into the "raise organic chickens bandwagon," bought at the peak of the housing bubble, got foreclosed on, never learned any real skills, and pretty much made every horrific idiotic decision a young-now-aged woman could make.

So who does she blame it on?

Well she got fully infected with feminist indoctrination and now everything (obviously) is men's fault!

PATRIARCHY!
RICH WHITE MALES!!!
IF IT WASN'T FOR SEXISM I WOULD HAVE A LIVING WAGE JOB!!!!
REPUBLICAAAAANS!!!!!

It wasn't that she got knocked up at 16.  Had more kids than she could afford.  Or never bothered to get a degree in accounting, or bought a house she couldn't afford.

Nope, it's "patriarchy."

She's now pushing 60 years old and is the stereotypical cat lady.  She's too old and ugly to attract a man with any means.  She has no savings.  I don't even know what she's doing for work nowadays (but by her complaining about a living wage, I'd bet below $15 an hour).  And if you were to look back in her life, bar from the age of 0-16 (when she first got pregnant) her life has been hell.  What's it like living in poverty your entire adult life AND with three kids?  What's it like to get foreclosed on?  What's it like to be delusional to think all of that is simply the fault of "men?" I don't know because I didn't screw up like she did, but I'd hate to find out.

Take for example another friend of my friend.  This guy was an ardent leftist.  "The government needs to pay for this.  The government needs to pay for that.  Why we deserve a basic guaranteed income.  We deserve free health care and education.  And by god if it weren't for those evil, rich, fat cats and 1%'ers, we'd have the American dream we were all entitled to!"

Good for him. It's nice to have dreams.  The only problem is he mixed those dreams up with a heroin addiction and now (at the age of 48) is homeless, stuck in Minnesota while winter is upon us, and was hitting my buddy up for money to pay for "a hotel for just one night.  I just need money for one night and I'll get back on my feet!"

Sure you will skippy.

Point again is I don't know what it's like to be homeless.  I don't know what it's like to be 48 and bumming money off of people for lodging for ONE NIGHT. And I sure as hell made sure I would not be homeless as Minnesota's winter was upon me.  All I know is I sure the hell never want to.

And if you don't know a feminist cat lady or a 48 year old heroin addict, I'm sure you can throw a stone and hit any one of the millions of Millennial (and Gen X) liberal art students who could not bow down enough at the alter of leftism and could not spend enough at a worthless liberal arts college.  At BEST they're working as baristas at your local coffee shop, some well into their 40's.  At worst they're resorting to living in cars and prostitution as they're zealously committed to their ideological religion more than their own well-being.  But I don't know what these things are like either because I majored in a reasonably employable subject and worked multiple jobs if necessary so I didn't have to blow dick in a back alley to make rent.

I could go on.

Women who love government checks more than a husband, now aged spinsters with no one to love them, let alone visit them.

Our poorest community (that would be the black community) BLINDLY believing in government and Obama instead of themselves and the individual.  Now they can only point to Detroit and Compton as pinnacles of democrat, leftist achievement.

The millions of aged Baby Boomer hippies who didn't save up enough for retirement and now desperately rely on Social Security.

And heaven help the Gen Z'ers and Millennials who actually believe in the 31 flavors of gender (or were forced to at the age of 7).  Male, female, bi, and gay, I can understand.  But the life long mental insanity they self-inflicted on themselves with zhe/zher/pansexual/transsapiosexual/or whatever other bupkis has seemingly only translated into mental illness, a 40% suicide attempt rate, and a life of mental hell.

Millions (and I would contend all) leftists in some way or another are suffering horribly living the lives they do.

But there is one simple variable running in the background that explains it all and ties them all together. And it explains why no republican, libertarian, conservative or simply "non-leftists" has to raise a finger or their voice to get their pound of flesh out of the leftists who vote to parasite off of them.

Leftists ignore the Reality Principle.
Leftists ignore reality.

And when you choose to ignore reality, living your life and basing your decisions in leftist-utopian la-la land, the real world will come down on you like a 100 megaton bomb and cause such unimaginable pain and agony, even I don't wish it on the majority of leftists who inflict it upon themselves.

For example, the REALITY of the labor market is that people demand things they want.  And if you were to make a list of everybody's Christmas wishlist it is going to be populated with electronic gadgets, cell phones, computers, laptops, vehicles, clothes, games, drones, and a panoply of other goodies.  Consider more boring "necessities" your old man wants and you add tools, gas, insurance, home repairs, auto repairs, lawnmowers, and a whole bunch of other stuff.  But if you were to list the trades, professions, and skills that go into making and providing these things to the market, you will find NONE of them require people with "Women's Studies Skills."  Or "Critical Thinking Skills."  Or "Literature and Poetry" skills.  Or "Communications Skills."  They need engineers, accountants, actuaries, tradesmen, metal smithers, and a whole host of other people who actually provide VALUE to the rest of society.

But this harsh reality of having to work for a living, providing value to others, working a job you don't necessarily like, never dawns on the majority of American high school graduates.  It also is antithetical to leftist thought.  And so what do 67% of them do?

They major in the liberal arts.
They follow their heart because the money will follow.
They're going to major in something (because at the wise wise age of 18) they're going to "change the world."

Now i don't have to explain to you what happens a short 4-8 years (depending on if they're dumb enough to get advanced degrees in these fields).  For while they glibly and arrogantly lectured your chemical-engineering-majoring-ass about how you were polluting the environment, and you weren't helping society, and how great they were "raising awareness" about the 3 out of every 2 women being raped on campus,

after graduation
after all the graduation parties
after all the pomp and circumstance was over
and after their parents and relatives are done kissing their asses

the rest of the remaining 55 years of their lives started. And ALL of those 55 years WILL entail a hell of poverty, scraping by, begging for grant money, and vainly trying to validate their value to society as a single mom in East St. Paul earning below $15 on Facebook.

Their lives are over.
They have reached their peak.
The remaining 2/3rds of their lives are now downhill and, frankly, pointless.

Let's take another example.  Feminism.

Feminism is leftism + vagina.  That's really all it is.  Abdicate love, jettison pair bonding, and ignore your biological desire to get married and have some little rugrats.  Those really smart 60's feminists came up with some theories about the sexual dynamics between men and women that in a short 60 years OBVIOUSLY obsoletes and replaces 2 million years of human evolution.

And most women (sadly, leftist or not, but disproportionately leftist) bought it!

Women don't need no man.
Fish bicycle.
You can have it all.

Have you seen the first test subjects this poppycock was tried on?  You probably haven't noticed because the human eye is naturally gravitated towards youth and beauty, but look around at all the single Baby Boomer women.  Short hair, no ring, wrinkly, aged and alone, and it isn't because they're widowed.  They are the ones who "wanted it all" and by gum Oprah, feminists, media, and the government told them they could have it.  Heck, Obama with "The Life of Julia" would pay for it with a government check.  So off to have careers, children, husbands...and the inevitable divorce and mentally ill children that comes with biting off more than you can chew and outsourcing everything to day care.  And so instead of a Norman Rockwell, nuclear family Christmas, you have what you got now - "A broken family, step-half-brother sister...who the hell are these people??? Meet mom's new boyfriend and his bastard children from three different mothers" Christmas.  The larger point is no little grandchildren are going to be there.  No husband or pair bonding will be there either.  Feminists celebrate Christmas alone...which they probably don't because they're devoutly atheist...as they cuddle up to and kiss their government grant check (look out for paper cuts on your lip).

And just for good measure, a third example - millennial male feminists...heaven help them.

These effeminate boys actually believe, actually think that if they agree with women, parroting the leftist talking points they think women want to hear, they're going to get laid.  In one ear their biology is screaming for them to get laid, in the other ear leftism is screaming at them to do the precise OPPOSITE of what's going to get them laid.  Not only does this damn them to the world of perma-virgins and perma-friendzones, it condemns them to at least a decade of confusion.  And given the overpowering biological urges they have, running smack dab against what leftism and feminism tells them to do, I can only imagine a 7 year old raised to be transgendered by his vegan parents would suffer more mental pain and agony than this generation of poor lost boys.

At best you're Johnathan MacIntosh cause you're not collecting a government check.
At worst you're a NEET.
But regardless, you are not seeing a woman naked ever in your life and you validate the complaint "Where have all the good men gone?!"

The point is, even if you gathered all of your republican, conservative, libertarian and simply "non-leftists" buddies, and sat and conspired for weeks to concoct the most painful, horrific, devastating form of revenge on just ONE single leftist, the level of revenge you would exact wouldn't even compare to the lives leftists have chosen to live for themselves.  And the reason why is that living outside the real world of economics, romance, love, logic, psychology, sex, friendship, and career ensures you will ruin those things forever in your life.  And not only will you ruin them, they will torture you in every single one of those capacities until you are dead.  Your life will not merely be "wasted" like a happy drunk or pothead, it will be TORTURED as your adamant and desperate belief in leftism never jives with reality.  Again, if you think about it, it's a punishment you'd think twice about meting. 

So this Christmas, and for the rest of your life, do not let leftists or the fact they're "getting free money" or "vote against freedom" or "vote to increase your taxes" lessen your finite time on this planet.  Though they'll never admit it, they are getting punished ENOUGH.  Just be happy and take solace in the sanity, serenity, and good mental health that comes with living in the real world.  And as the impoverished single mom feminist screams at you on the internet, or the black nurse says white women should kill their babies, or a university allows you to "self-identify" as a different race, just pour yourself a drink, throw on some jazz, appreciate your non-leftist friends, share this post with some fellow conservatives and enjoy the decline.

Why Gen X Will Be Worse Parents than the Baby Boomers


If you are Stefan Molyneux, please read no further.  But if you're not the Canadian philosophical genius, please read on.

This past extended Thanksgiving weekend had confirmed in my mind a trend I was subconsciously noting, but hadn't consciously realized or had crystalized in my frontal lobes.  And that trend was the completely unacceptable behavior of my generation's children.

As more and more of my generation were breeding, their little rug rats (though originally starting off as unconscious cute infants, cooing and cuddling) soon turned into toddlers, exercising some sentience, independent thought, and independent behavior.  And while there's the token kid who's cool, respectful, well-behaved, and...well...normal, the same cannot be said for what I estimate to be at least 90% of the remainder.  They are absolutely atrocious little pieces of shit that (in all deadly seriousness) I would have no problem beating, and in some rarer cases, simply breaking their necks so that the herd may have a higher chance of survival.  Quite literally, the only thing that prevents me from doing that is the law.

Their behaviors range from constant whining to biting adults.
From screaming because they didn't get what they wanted to spitting milk in parents' faces.
From "insto-crying" because you didn't immediately dot on whatever whim they had at the time to running around knocking stuff over at the (previously) quiet coffee shop.

And perhaps the one I find most fascinating is the 100% reliable refusal to obey their parents' commands.  I once witnessed a GROUP of adults tell children to stop running NO LESS than 12 times, not one of them did.  They COMPLETELY ignored their parents as if they weren't even there.

Of course, much as I'd like to break these childrens' little necks, the fault does not lie with them.  They're too young and too unevolved to understand the moral ramifications and importance of good behavior and obeying their elders.  But the blame does squarely land with their Gen X parents, the generation of which I am completely convinced will make Baby Boomer parents look like June and Ward Cleaver.

For each and every unacceptable behavior their children exhibit their is an equal and opposite shitty parenting technique that caused it.

Time outs (and not spanking) causes children to ignore your commands.

Reasoning with them as if they're fucking Plato and are going to ponder the moral ramifications of spitting in the house only sounds to them like Charlie Brown's teacher, the deep philosophical discussion of which will be immediately ignored once you're done saying in your wimpish tone, "Sweetheeeeeeart, we don't spit in the house?  OK??????  That's not right.  We don't do that."

Constantly telling...
 then asking...
then begging...
and then groveling with your children to "not run in the house" only reinforces their running in the house because you've never expended a calorie of effort to enforce it.  Alas why after telling a kid 3 times, I'd make sure the kid would be limping through the house, while no doubt you'd be on your 12th or 13th plea-bargain to get them to come to the negotiating table at the UN where you and other worldly negotiators would presumably use the Socratic Method to hopefully convince your 4 year old to perhaps maybe "jog" though the house.

I could go on, but all the poor parenting techniques that make up the canon of modern day poor parenting boils down to one thing.

You're lazy.  You're cowards.  You simply do not have the work effort or strength to do the hard part of parenting.  You simply lack the spine to provide the desperately needed tough fatherly love and discipline every child needs.  Your parenting is not "new" or "progressive" or "advanced" or "on the cutting edge of child psychology."  It's lazy, cowardly, shitty slop just like your kids.

The good news is that (as is always with the universe) there is a cost and consequence for failing to raise and discipline your children properly.  Some of which society will unfairly bear, but most of which the parents, and even their kids, will bear.

In terms of society, there are negative externalities we must endure due to your crappy parenting.  That screaming 2 year old that was sitting in front of me ruined my coffee (and prompted me to write this article).  The misbehaving children at church detracted you from the sermon.  You couldn't enjoy your dinner because some avant-garde parents don't believe little Jimmy shouldn't be blowing his milk through his straw.  And I can't estimate what we're paying in taxes for "special ed" programs for kids that would have otherwise been normal had there been a real dad in the house.  But in the end these children go away.  These children leave. They are no longer in our lives or households, they are merely fleeting bleeps of annoyances we temporarily endure.

The same cannot be said of the parents.  And here a whole new world of hell opens up.

First, you have a household that is intolerable to adults.  They are slaves in their own homes, subjected to the tyranny of their children.  In many o' houses I visited it is PAINFULLY obvious who runs the show.  The entirety of the parents' time is dedicated not so much "to" their children as much as it is dealing with them.  Constantly asking what the children want, instantly responding to every cry and whine, reasoning with them as if Jordan Peterson was sitting across from them, and spinning there wheels fetching this or that to end the crying.  Alas, since they're incapable of expending the 2 calories it would take to spank a child, they spend millions running around like butlers and servants for 18 years.

Second, holidays and family gatherings are ruined.  All it takes is one misbehaving child and Christmas dinner is ruined.  Not only is it annoying to the rest of the participants, but it makes adult conversation, bonding, and being a family impossible.  You can't converse with your brother Jim about his job because Jim Jr is still in diapers at 4 years old and shit his pants.  You can't inquire about how your cousin Amy is doing because Amy Jr is screaming for no reason whatsoever.  You can't watch the Thanksgiving football game because, despite their parents' toothless 47th plea, the kids are still running in front of the television, perhaps knocking it over.  Ill-reared children raised by incompetent parents make family gatherings a baby sitting operation, not a time to enjoy and love one another.

Third, the parents are haggard.  The wear and tear of ill-reared children inevitably takes its toll on the people who refuse to rear them.  Remember, a spanking costs 2 calories of energy.  Refusing to raise them takes millions more. And it shows in the face, mental health, and even physical health of the parents.

Constantly being sick.
Constantly tired.
Constantly working whether you're at work or home.

And let's not forget the ancillary consequences of being constantly taxed.  Your fuses are shortened, you are more prone to blow up at your spouse.  And this I inevitably predict will lead to a divorce rate on par with the previous Divorce World Champions - the Baby Boomers (but that's OK, because like avant-garde parenting is good for your child, I suppose you think divorce is good for your kid too).

Finally, the kids themselves.

Understand this trend has been going on for decades.  It was not necessarily Gen X that came up with the original idea of absentee "new age" parenting.  It started with the Baby Boomers and just became popularized by Gen X.  So we can already witness the full results of children raised in a disciplineless household.  Namely, the medicated generation.

In my day we didn't have ADD, ADHD, Aspergers or Autism.  We had a dad that would spank the hell out of you, and if he didn't, the playground bully would.  This isn't to say that ADD, ADHD, the Aspergers and the Autisms doesn't exist, but they do not legitimately exist anywhere near the number of people diagnosed with it.  Nearly all of those cases you will see either an absent father or a father who was there, but never disciplined his children.  And thus, when you release your ill-reared children - spitting, biting, shitting their pants and all - into the school system, to the untrained elementary school teacher's eye, it plainly looks like a mental disorder.

This condemns your children to a world of disillusion, misdiagnoses, and outright lies that will punish them forever.

You have a disease (that you really don't).  Here's some drugs.
You're depressed/have social anxiety disorder/are bi-polar.  Here's some drugs.
You're not behaving the way a 24 year old female teacher wants you to.  You're in special ed.
You could be bi, gay, transgender...at 7. Yes, you can wear a dress Johnny.
You got triggered and have PTSD.  You need to see a psychologist.  BTW, here's some more drugs.

And thus "special ed programs," pharmaceutical companies, and hacks psychologists make HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS off of you and the taxpayer.

Oh...and let's not forget that when your child finally turns 18 and enters the real world he/she is completely incapable of self-supportation, will likely live at home or off of you till they're 30, and are so deluded about the real world they will pay the price of life-long insanity (thinking they have a mental disease or are a "non-conforming pangender queer") simply because you were too cowardly to spank, too weak to say "no" and too spineless to parent.  I endured enough hell believing the baby boomer lies that "girls just want a nice guy" and that "any degree is a good degree."  I could only imagine how insanely painful and difficult life would be if I was misled to believe I was a "panqueerggendered-transexual" who had ADD, was bi-polar, and never moved out of the house!

I used to think the Baby Boomers were bad parents, and as a generation they most certainly were.  But the blatant lack of parenting on the part of Gen X parents belies just how selfish and greedy they are.  They never had kids for the sake of the kids. They had kids solely for themselves, as if the kids were mere objects.  And this is only confirmed in that most Gen X parents view parenting as a lackadaisical hobby that they half-heartedly work at, as long as it doesn't require work, rigor, toil, discipline, a spine, or effort.  It's further confirmed where they put their convenience ahead of the pure hell their absentee-parenting will damn their children to for their entire lives.

I know I give the Millennials hell, but the generation Gen X is raising today is going to make the Millennials look as noble and hard-working as the WWII generation.

Enjoy the decline.

Seattle's Wealth Tax

Though to be expected (because it violates state law), a judge unfortunately ruled against Seattle's attempt to implement a wealth tax.

Liberals in Seattle deserve not only to pay the tax, but they also deserve the low economic growth that would result.  They deserve the capital flight out of the city that would ensue, along with businesses already leaving town in anticipation of their $15 minimum wage.

In short, Seattle, like all large, liberal towns deserve what inevitably and ultimately happens to them. They deserve to become Detroit.

I will sadly also not be buying Girl Scout cookies anymore.  Not because I do care for the girls, but I loathe the leadership who abuse girls to advance political aims.

America's Only SJW Who Admitted She Was Wrong

I like how deep down inside she knew all along which means the majority of them are hypocritically faking it to avoid the regular trials and torture of the real world.

We Will Return to a Regularly Scheduled Blog This Week

Many of you may have noticed the lack of posts since Wednesday.  Un/fortunately I got slammed at Asshole Consulting.  Who knew with the lack of fathers, rampant and celebrated divorce, and lying to now three generations of children, these kids when they grew up would start seeking out the truth and would be willing to pay handsomely for it.

Anyway, I do not see Asshole Consulting slowing down so if any of my regular readers find TRULY interesting articles or posts (no British tabloid garbage like the Daily Mail), please e-mail them to the ole Capmeister at CAPTcapitalism (at) yahoo (DOT) com.  Would put up some good links and some material to fill in the space between the deeper thought pieces.

And remember, if you want lies, hire a regular consultant.
If you want the truth, hire an asshole.

End Sexual Assault by Forcing Men to Work from Home

As an economist I always try to find the simplest, cheapest, and most effective solutions to society's problems.  However, whereas mere mediocre economists talk about multi-factor productivity, education, etc., the reason I'm one of the best economists is because I do something most others don't.

I think outside the box.

And so, just like I was (in theory) able to prevent the Dotcom Bubble, the Asian Currency Crisis, the Housing Bubble, Education Bubble, and Retirement Bubble, I have found a way to bring the epidemic of sexual harassment and sexual assault to a screeching halt, and at practically no expense to America.

Force men to work from home.

It seems to me that "boys are just going to be boys" and while I know feminists, academians, HR departments, CSR departments, and non-profits are doing their best to eliminate toxic masculinity and bring out the more feminine side of men, until that noble goal is achieved, it may be best to avail ourselves of already available technology and require that men only work from home.

This will bring about a lot of benefits to society that go well beyond ending work place sexual harassment and assault.  Women won't be bothered by men at the office or in the downtown eateries come lunch time.  They will not be harassed, allowing for much safer work place environments.  An all-women workplace environment will FINALLY come to fruition allowing them the chance to excel that was traditionally the preserve of men.  Plus, the highways won't be as crowded come the morning and evening commutes.  One might even say this would force men to be the house husbands, forcing them to see what it was like to be oppressed as a stay at home mom.

I'm not advocating necessarily that we eliminate choice from men and as to what their work options are.  I'm merely suggesting that corporations, schools, universities, and other employers exercise their rights as private employers insist their male employees, workers and students simply work and study from home.  It will bring about the immediate end of work place sexual assault, prevent crises like Hollywood's current sexual assault affair from happening in the future, put a dead stop to the campus rape epidemic that is occurring now, and finally give women the shot they deserve at equality.

How and Why the Left is the Biggest Threat to the Freedom of Speech

Why Profit is Necessary

The latest closing of a social do-gooder restaurant sent me on a tirade on my second-latest podcast where I explained that if you don't put profits first, then your company will fail (and you will fail your employees or whatever do-gooder lefty cause you happened to be championing that week).

Many of you on the left may disagree with this and even write it off as capitalist, right-wing propaganda, but the point transcends politics, even economics, and approaches one of physics, even simple logic.  Also, whereas most non-leftists may intuitively know why profit is necessary for a company to survive, one might wonder if the socialists might possibly be right in some obscure philosophical way.  IS there a way for a company to exist without profit?  "I know it sorta seems like profit should be necessary, but I haven't got through and developed an economic proof or theorem that proves it so."  And so let us delve into the boring world of profits and learn a vital economics lesson we all need to learn...that no doubt the leftist ideologues will choose to completely ignore.

The simplest way to understand why profits are necessary is to understand it from a perspective of providing goods and services.  This is an oft forgotten or ignored aspect of economics because everybody seems to focus on MONEY and not the things that actually matter - GOODS AND SERVICES.

I cannot eat a dollar.
A Yen will not provide you surgery.
A pound will not feed your dog.
And a Euro will not fuel your car.

However, these currencies WILL buy us the goods and services that provide ultimate value and utility in life.  A dollar will buy me an apple that I can eat.  A Yen will buy me some gas that will fuel my car.  A Euro will buy a dentist's services to repair your teeth.  And a pound will buy some dental floss after your dentists lectures you for not flossing.  So the whole point and purpose of an economy is to produce the stuff, not the money nor necessarily profits in the process of doing so.

Since it is the stuff that needs producing that ultimately matters you need to ask how stuff gets produced, and the answer is "not charitably."

In order for things to get produced, somebody has to inevitably forfeit some of their time to produce them.  This can be done on an individual level as per subsistence type craphole economies like Africa, or in the awesome 1st world through organizations, namely, corporations and companies.  Large and complex systems organizing capital and labor to produce an amazing plethora of things all on the cheap.  But regardless of the size of the company, it has to ultimately be started.  And since time is ultimately the ONLY resource that matters to humans, any sane and self-respecting human is going to demand he or she be compensated for it.

Thus introducing profit.

This is the problem most people who have a problem with profit face.  They look at it backwards.  The issue isn't whether somebody deserves profit or whether profit should exist.  NOTHING would exist unless it was for profit.  And the insurance industry explains this incredibly well.

NOBODY likes paying for insurance.  It's a necessary evil, and it's so evil illegal aliens often go without it as they ram their cars into us otherwise law abiding, superior people.  But what really irks most people is that insurance companies...GASP!!!!  MAKE A PROFIT! This means they charge us MORE than the damages and payouts they actually have to pay out.  HOW DARE THEY!!!???

But think about it.  If they DIDN'T charge more than they paid out, then why would anybody start an insurance company?  The only reason an individual or a group of investors would start an insurance company would be to make a profit for themselves.  They put their time, money, and risk into the venture, so you're damn right they're going to charge more than they pay out.  But while you may detest that profit, if it wasn't there, then there would be no insurance at all.  And not only insurance, but no

food
gas
video games
cell phones
clothes
housing
dog food
cat food
medicine
surgeries
cars
buses
trucks
and coffee

NOTHING in this world would exist without profit, and a world with nothing being produced (no matter how much money is printed) will look more like Soviet Russia, Venezuela, North Korea, or Zimbabwe (much as those places make leftists wet).

Now let's ignore the fact the track record of socialism and communism is horrendous and makes the nazis look like saints.  Let's ignore the fact that Mugabe of Zimbabwe is begging those evil capitalist white farmers to come back and make food again for his idiot electorate.  Let's ignore Venezuelans eating pets to stay alive.  And let's ignore practically everything about North Korea.

Let's go completely theoretical.

Is there a way to replace profit with a socialist model where the government provides the capital or resources and profits are either retained in government coffers or redistributed amongst the workers (which explains why former communist workers are so rich).  Does there need to be the incentive for profit, or can a government company merely be efficient and produce the goods and services in the variations and amounts necessary to sustain (forget satisfy) an entire society?

In this situation a government would merely print off the money, buy the capital and equipment necessary to start a company, produce widgets, and (assuming it's an efficient widget company) all profits would go back to paying single moms to breed more bastards as they get their Masters in Health Administration degrees.  There's just a couple problems that will more or less ensure this leftist-whetting utopia doesn't ever manifest.

First, communists are too nice.  The whole point of communism is to make everything "free."  This not only means charging nothing for the ultimate good or service produced, but overpaying employees because, well we all need a living wage!  This naive (albeit) kindness dooms nearly every communist/government company to being inefficient.  It's why Byte failed, it's why Bartertown failed, it's why the Soviet Union failed.  In making things free (and paying your employees more than they produce) you ensure your companies/system are inefficient forever needing more infusions of cash to balance your books.  Bailing out the occasional pizza store is one thing, but when you're entire economy is government owned and inefficient, you need to print off trillions which only causes hyper-inflation, and ultimately never increases production.

Second, there is no competition.  Without somebody nipping at your heels and threatening to take away your profit, you have no incentive to work harder, better, faster, or stronger.  And communism ensures there are only monopolies, and not competitors.  This results in not so much lazy, but unincentivized people which are a hallmark of government workers.  Government workers have no competition.  They have no hustle.  They are fat, lazy, and slothful creatures that deserve the mockery and ridicule their parasitic asses attract.  But imagine if the incompetent fuckery going on at the DMV....

WAS EVERYWHERE.

It would take 4 hours to get a Big Mac.
It would take 3 hours and $400 to fill your tank with gas.
Have fun shopping at Best Buy as you wait in line to get your government issued computer.
And if you didn't like it, tough cookies, there's no other competitors or companies in town to "take your business elsewhere."  You simply have the "company" store.

Competition, specifically the threat that profits will be earned away by a competitor, is precisely what keeps the entirety of society's producers and entrepreneurs 100% completely focused on making you happy, condemning them to a life of constantly improving and creating new products at cheaper prices till they're dead just for you (ironically delivering on more of communism's promises than communism itself!).  They're practically slaves to the rest of society, and you dare get upset they make "profit" as you leftist sheep line up to buy the iPhone X?

In the end a world without profit is like a woman without a vagina, a man without money, a car without gas, or a plane without wings.  Nobody wants it and it has no value.  You may not like the idea of profit, you may not like the idea of "greed" or "human nature," but like death, disease, mortality, and hipsters, it's just an unfortunately reality of life.  I suggest you accept it instead of trying to futilely fight against it.

Enjoy the decline!

How Social Media Has Ruined Your Life

An outstanding podcast from The Hanging Chads where they interview fellow old fart Pleasure Man of My Posting Career fame.  The majority of the show is Pleasure Man talking about how social media and trends in major metropolitan areas has destroyed the family and triggered massive depression amongst nearly every one as we mindlessly substitute digital attention for real, in person attention.  I would have been curious if they delved into how this may affect young men vs. women (free digital attention and free digital porn), but they unfortunately did not.

Before listening to this podcast I uninstalled facebook for a two week sabbatical from the platform, and may solely start to relegate it to just a press release mechanism and occasional texting tool.  It got too annoying with constant dings and message reminders for increasingly petty things.  Was becoming too much of a distraction and a time suck for what little free time I have left.  Regardless, listen to the podcast as it delves into more detail about WHY you feel depressed only having a digital life and why you must get out and actually meet real people in the real world.

The End of Minneapolis' City Pages


Allow me to tell you the tale of two *cough* "newspapers" from the 90's.

As a student at the U of MN Minneapolis campus there were two newspapers that were there to constantly remind us just how bad we were, how oppressive we were, how we owed other people money, and (not too shortly after the 90's) lectured white and males about being...well...whites and males.  The two newspapers were The Star Tribune and City Pages.

The Star Tribune was your typical baby boomer, large city new publication that subtly and not so subtly advocated socialism while faking the air of "journalism" the entire time.  The City Pages was the local "music and events" calendar, which also (oddly) insisted on forcing outright and obvious socialist politics and articles on their readers.  Most of us 20 somethings merely grabbed a copy of the City Pages to see what was going on at this nightclub or which jazz musician was playing at that night club, but only the devout proto-SJW Gen X "grunge" garbage (replete with pacifiers in their mouths) would read it for their "articles," thinking they were high end philosophers as their parents from the suburbs paid for their Work Avoidance "liberal arts degrees."

This presented an annoyance for those of us with real jobs and real degrees contributing real GDP to the economy.  City Pages hands down had the best and most comprehensive list of events going on in the city.  For that they were serving a need and providing value to the economy.  But (as is the case with nearly every leftist artist) they couldn't just be satisfied with providing that good and quality service.  Like Hollywood, the Walker Art Center, and every other "artist" out there, they just had to add politics.  And not just soft left politics.  Insulting politics demanding you pay more money and it was your fault for everything wrong in the world.

This thorn in the side of unrequested leftist politics being served with an events calendar was somewhat tempered with the advent of the internet.  City Pages made the successful jump from paper to digital, but you could go directly to their calendar and not see the latest oppressed minority or latest Che Guevara t-shirt wearing "activist" with their latest call for other people's hard-earned money.  But it still irked me that they we the only game in town when it came to finding events in the Twin Cities.  Worse, as SJWism and the 00's rolled around, the events they listed started to reflect their politics, relegating nearly all the events on the City Pages to 4 main leftist categories.

Lousy art shows.
Lousy theater.
Lousy bands.
Lousy speeches/lectures.

Many-a-time I would hit up the City Pages, thinking I'd find something interesting, talented, and of genuine intellectual interest, but it was just ads for the Twin Cities' finest leftist artists using (inferior) art as a mask to promote their leftist religion.  Poetry slams by (guess what!) leftist college poets.  Art shows at (guess what) the leftist Walker Art Center.  "Hey that band looks interesting, let's check them out!"  Guess what!  A sermon and lecture in between each song about the evils of Republicans.

It was bad enough a good conversation with friends in the Perkins of suburbia was more enjoyable, entertaining, and intelligent.

But there was good news on the horizon and it would only be an accidental search on Google that made me realize the end of The City Pages was already here or near.  For one night, completely bored and nothing to do at home, I decided I would look up and see what was going on in Minneapolis that night.  I had already searched Meetup.com, which i had been using as a daytime replacement for City Pages, but instead of going to City Pages, I remembered Google would also consolidate flights and hotel prices in case you wanted to just quickly peruse what the airlines were offering.  And shimmy shammy, wammy bammy, with the hoity toity and the oopdy loopdy, guess what.

Google does the same thing for Minneapolis events.

I tried doing the same with Chicago Events, because like Minneapolis has the City Pages, Chicago has it's own leftist rag called "The Chicago Reader." But somebody at the Chicago Reader must have had some pull because Google does not list events for that city.  Same with LA and New York.  But for Milwaukee, Denver, or any other non-major city, it looks like the internet in the form of Google and Meetup.com has now completely obsoleted the need for these communist-propagandist papers...that just so happen to have events calendar attached to them.  

As with any shrinking and obsolete industry, consolidation is the name of the game.  In 2015 The Star Tribune bought out City Pages, and now the two are one and the same "big conglomerate evil corporation" ironically writing leftist slop for faux-intellectual SWPL humanities majors to masturbate to as they sip $5 espressos and opine entirely new theories as to why they're entitled to other people's money.  And like nearly every other newspaper (paper or digital or otherwise) their employees are relegated to the incomes of part time bloggers...or perhaps volunteerists who are paid nothing like the Huffington Post.  Worse, they are relegated to fewer readers, fewer advertising dollars, and need a larger parent company to float them financially because...well, why would hard working people visit their site to be insulted when there are cheaper, freer, and politics-free alternatives via Meetup.com and simple Google searches?

It was fun City Pages.  I'm sure you guys with the thousands of articles claiming entitlement to other people's money for "reasons" since the 70's has really solved poverty, racial relations, closed wage gaps, and done the world and world of good.  And who knows!?  With your "backpages" you may have even helped spread the good word of STD's.  But in the end, your politics provided society no value, and all you were were parasitic tag-alongs to a damn events calendar.

Enjoy the decline.
