I need some motivation. Nothing like a few wormtounges and heretics trying to redefine biblical and the Bible. Gunner Q notes this among the Baptists. To Mark Dever, “Biblical” does not mean “pertaining to God’s Word”. “Biblical” means “I tricked you into taking me seriously”. “MY theology, MY understanding of the Gospel, but first, I […]

Work.

The authorities are after your mind. They will police your social media accounts. Go anonymous, or close them down — if you have to tweet or linkin or (worse) facebook, then be as bland as possible. We now need OPSEC about the people who pay us. My company just started the diversity and inclusion, different […]

Wisdom from Stacey. The context is that an alleged murderer of a local pretty girl is worried that he won’t get a fair trial. Using racism, sexism or homophobia as a rhetorical kill code no longer works. Most people now go “Yeah, right”. We have been too exposed to lawyers, hucksters, and the hard edge […]

Woke journal.

I have the following thesis, expressed as a syllogism. The woke are our current elite — from the dying newspaper business to the idiots who believe throwing quickset concrete milkshakes is free speech. The woke are stupid. The woke will not learn. Therefore, the woke should be relentlessly mocked. Wokeness is a combination of living […]

The failure of postmodern woke.

The woke fail because they have nothing but abstractions. Ideology trumps everything, as intersectional Manichees. They hate the concrete. But life is made up of the concrete, the real. The map is not the nation, the model does not account for all variation, and your spouse is not virtual, nor a song, nor a poem. […]

I missed this the first time, but in my experience, the biggest ever group of idiots, those who swallowed the kool aid good and hard, and ruined their lives, were my generation. But, once you start looking at the breakdowns of the numbers at a regional and local level, some interesting patterns start to emerge. […]

Myopic culture.

I find myself again talking about Folau, because it is interesting how over time the field is moving. The issue is not about Folau’s faith — or indeed if people are offended by this. It is about if an employer can stop someone tweeting. In Australia, Folau has more support than the media and activists. […]

I am more of a fan of Israel than my Israeli coworker (who describes them as a fascist state) but I do acknowledge that there is a state called Israel. NZ Immigration calls it Palestine on official documents. The Israelis are not amused. As most Arabs will tell you, only a fool pisses off the […]

Scrapbook.

Most of this blog is text centric. Scrapbooks have images. Most are from Gab Photography today. Many cultures embrace war. Those who embrace peace lie: in conflict, total war they also embrace war, like religion. Fervently. Yes, war is hell, and nobody sane wishes for war. But at the same time boys love war because […]

I am getting a fair amount of Spam. I am limiting the plug ins I use, but I’ve added an extensive set of banned words. In short, all the shill words selling things, and all the rude words. Note that I close all comments after three weeks. If your comment gets kicked out, it is […]
