Misnomer of the Day

The word fair or fairness or most fair is at best subjectively ambiguous. It is custom tailored for the moral relativists in our midst. Of lately, this malleable word is used as a ploy, providing cannon fodder for the left’s mission of disseminating class warfare.

Ask any misguided altruist to explain, how is it moral to confiscate the private property (wealth) of one man then surrender it to another. Chances are the word fair will creep into their specious rationalization. Our illustrious president used the word 14 times in a campaign speech at a high school recently, appealing to that level of maturity characteristic of public school indoctrination.

Advocating fairness, which in this context happens to be immoral (sacrificing one’s individual rights while expanding the power of the state) is this president’s moral failing, consecrated in a political ideology of socialism, one which boarders on insanity, repeating the same socialistic failures over and over while anticipating a different outcome.

If his argument had any merit, he wouldn’t have to repeat the word fair fourteen times; apparently he’s banking on the age old axiom: If one repeats a falsehood over and over, others will come to believe it as true.

A Christmas Anecdote From the Tipi Wind Ranch

“Burn some of those for me,” I said to Robin as she pushed another sheet of Neiman Marcus cookies into the oven.

“I know how you like them, so this next batch is for you.”

Three minutes after the cooking timer sounded she brought forth a batch of, slightly burnt around the edge, cookies. I promptly burnt my tongue on a smoldering chocolate chip, then proceeded to eat sixteen more before they had a chance to cool.

Today she made peanut butter bon bons and sugar cookies (you know the ones with the green and red Christmas sprinkles on them). Contrary to what you may believe; I refrained from eating any. One has to show great restraint at this time of year because death by gluttony is always two bites away.

Winter arrived yesterday with an arctic air blast that froze my frost free hydrant out at the horse barn. I hadn’t anticipated this, since I had installed one of those high-tech-multi-special-no-freeze jobs several years ago. This is troublesome; the next outdoor faucet is 200 feet from the barn, or in labor terms: two one hundred foot hoses, which just happen to be frozen solid. So I struggle to coil them, (joy joy joy) it’s like trying to coil a pile of green oak branches. When finished, I haul the imperfect bundles along with two large dogs and two cats into the sunroom to thaw overnight, hopefully, those animals will generate enough body heat to keep the temp above freezing, or come morning I will be (six letter expletive here).

By mid-morning the temp had risen to a sweltering -1 Fahrenheit. Determined to deliver water for horses, I bundled up and make my move. Dashing outside I swiftly assemble the hoses while the north wind lashes my face. Running swiftly from the faucet to the water tank I stretch out the hose and promptly discover . . . I’m thirty feet short.

After recoiling the two hundred feet of hose, I drag it back into the sunroom, then precede to the shed to retrieve another fifty feet of gnarled frozen hose, which I heaped beside the rest.

The sunroom is like a sauna come afternoon, so I bolt from the house to join the three sections of hose and finally deliver the precious water. I stand by the tank and pet the horses as they drink with greedy enthusiasm. While the tank fills I watch the winter sun blaze out in the western sky and wonder what else hadn’t I anticipated . . . ?

It’s Christmas!  If only I had anticipated; my shopping (along with this letter) would have been done weeks ago. I would be cavorting in Christmas spirit by now, ready for mirth, merriment, and death by gluttony.

From our ranch to yours: Merry Christmas

The word equality has to be the most equivocal word in the English language. It is an abstract illusion used to define a nebulous concept. Equality has never existed in any form. This is what makes it so appealing to the left; equality doesn’t exist, therefor inequality can never be remedied. This misconception insures a limitless supply of victims, thus perpetuating the progressive socialist agenda indefinitely.

The universe is everything but equal. In nature, the strongest of a species survive to propagate the heard and pass along their genes for the benefit of the species. In the human species, man too has genetic variables; these variables determine intelligence, strength, agility, and longevity. This genetic predisposition enhances some to achieve greatness, wealth, and success beyond that of ordinary individuals.

Sure, I would like to be a movie star and earn twenty million per movie, or play pro football with all of the wealth and prestige that accompany that profession, but I do not possess the physical attributes to play pro ball, perform brain surgery, or manage a multinational company; unfortunately, this is the reality that most of us face.

The Orwellian notion, that there needs to be equality of pay and equality of wealth distributed amongst all humans is a totalitarian dream that perpetuates government largess while trampling the rights of individuals.

When Tomas Jefferson penned the words (We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal) he meant, for those of us who can read and interpret plain English, that all men have the same individual and natural rights. Which means one man’s rights don’t supersede another’s, and that groups of men have no more rights than each individual that composes that group, and no man, or groupings of men, shall infringe upon the rights of his fellow man.

As long as the government fosters this deceitful notion of equality, the longer it remains purposeful to the minions of idiots who willfully employ the state as highwaymen to rob their fellow man of his liberty, dignity and wealth.

Of lately, the political buzz phrase that has
captured the attention of the MSM, is Unintended Consequences. This
misnomer is contrived to deceive the naive who walk among us. Politicians to
frequently use it as a get out of jail free card, which they cast out as a smug
way of saying they are sorry for the inherent bad consequences surrounding
their failure to craft good policy with poor judgment.

It is a phrase tailored for pragmatists who make
arbitrary decisions based on subjective whims for immediate gratification. All
actions have consequences. Good consequences are always intended and are readily
claimed by those responsible. Unintended consequences are bad consequences
period. Pleading ignorance and calling a bad consequence unintended doesn’t
mitigate the damage, yet that is exactly how the phrase has been manipulated by
the American politic. Those bureaucrats and politicians’ who lack critical
thinking skills (assessing various outcomes based on reality, over a period of
time) should be held accountable for the havoc they reap.

This exemplifies America’s pragmatic foreign policy
failures over the last fifty years. Libya is a sterling example; whereby a
president circumvented congress to kill a dictator and topple a regime, while pleading
humanitarian sympathy. Dropping bombs on a sovereign country is an act of war
which compounded the humanitarian crisis. Toppling a dictator in the name of
democracy empowered a mob of terrorist whom promptly declared Sharia the law of
the land. Terrorists whom now fly an al-Qaida flag over Benghazi, while
smuggling thousands of handheld surface to air missiles to Hamas. This is not the
work of critical thinking. This is our state department at its finest.

Oooops! Who would have thought this could happen? We
are reminded, “This is the unintended consequence of democracy.” The Third Reich
was also the unintended consequence of democracy.

Misnomer of the Day

The most inflammatory rhetoric emanating from the Justice Department these days has
to be this farcical misnomer referred to as: Domestic Terrorists. This
dangerous accusation has no relevancy in reality; it’s like claiming infants
are a threat to our national security, because one day they will grow to
adults, think for themselves, and discover freedom and individual rights are
the precursors to man’s prosperity and happiness.

When I think of domestic, I see June Cleaver clad in an apron frosting a cake in her
kitchen, Wally and the Beaver stand by her side, jockeying for position to lick
the mixing bowl and spoon.

When I think of terrorist, I see a mob of sharia loving Islamists stoning a woman to
death for the crime of being raped by a mob of sharia loving Islamists.

Marry these two polar opposite lifestyles together, disseminate it through an
irrational corrupt main stream media, and you give liberals a license to
condemn those who love freedom and cherish the constitution, condemn veterans
who have served this nation honorably, condemn everyone who has  raised a family, worked in the marketplace, paid taxes and owns property.

Trying to pawn off the notion that domesticated Americans are capable of terrorism is
another insane accusation, in a long list of insane accusations, perpetrated by
the insane left. This hate speech has serious ramifications; it’s a sterling
example of a totalitarian state demonizing its citizens to justify the use of
force to violate their individual rights.

Domestic Terrorism is a vicious lie, perpetrated to destroy our national heritage and
rob us of liberty. This is the same hyperbolae that marched the Jews into  gas chambers in Hitler’s Germany, forced millions into the concentration camps of Stalin’s Russia, and left millions
dead in the provinces of Mao’s China.

The left trots out this hate speech with impunity, while simultaneously calling for
civility in discourse. These paragons of socialism hide in plain sight, shielded
by a gossamer cloud of political correctness. These people are evil personified,
the enemy within; they are without a doubt the greatest threat to America’s heritage,
liberty, and sovereignty.

 Jobless recovery actually means no recovery at all. It’s a liberal cliché which means wishful thinking perpetrated by a desperate government clutching an irrational impossibility. Immaculate Conception stands a better chance of coming to fruition than a jobless recovery. I heard a sound bite from Christina Romer spouting off at Berkleyabout an economic recovery that is both jobless and growth less, which of course makes her clueless. Is it any wonder she was appointed by Obama as an economic adviser? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jU_9pUljKEk

 Job creation is directly related to production in the private sector. Production equals wealth creation, herein lays the key to economic recovery. Remember, government doesn’t create anything except bureaucracy. Government doesn’t create wealth; it squanders it, misallocating resources from the private sector, redistributing them to the public sector.

 These Keynesian dunderheads continue to pursue a policy of flooding the market with fiat currency in the failed hope of bolstering the economy without the actuation of job or wealth creation. This is the aberration they call a jobless recovery. Go figure.              The Anecdotal Objectivist

Misnomer of the Day

With so much brew-ha-ha over the debt ceiling negotiations, the most trotted out misnomer is: Compromise, which actually means Capitulation for all those opposed to the leftist politicians.

 They want the republicans and the tea-party to capitulate to their wonton fiscal desires’ of endless cash for every government discrepancy they deem relevant. They pout bitterly as they trod out their “Compromise” bromide again and again, trying to convince the unwitting amongst us that 2.5 trillion dollars is a trifle, and they can solve all our fiscal woes if they just had more of the taxpayers dollars. They have employed intimidation, threats, and fear mongering to get their way and when those devises failed they point at the conservatives and wail, “Compromise”. Remember, one can’t compromise with evil; one can’t compromise with what is morally corrupt. Compromise means swallowing the poison incrementally; the inevitable outcome of this practice is still death.

 These paragons of pragmatism want cash. 2.5 TRILLION, and they want it now, damn the national debt, damn the failure of Keynesian economics, damn those who oppose them as they bankrupt the nation while lining their pockets with loot. They need this money to once again pay off their constituencies buying votes with someone else’s wealth so they can stay in power for yet another election cycle, because government power is legalized corruption, enslaving the private sector, while plundering the masses.

 These Marxists Socialists are addicted to taxpayer’s money. They remind me of a junkie, pleading with god, promising to go straight and amend their ways if god would grant them just one more fix. Problem is; this fix costs 2.5 trillion, and these leftists are far more dangerous than junkies. But the cure is all the same: Cold Turkey.  Pod Cast <a href="http://www.divshare.com/flash/audio_embed?data=YTo2OntzOjU6ImFwaUlkIjtpOjQ7czo2OiJmaWxlSWQiO2k6MTU0MzQ5MTg7czo0OiJjb2RlIjtzOjEyOiIxNTQzNDkxOC1mMGEiO3M6NjoidXNlcklkIjtpOjE5Mzc5NzM7czoxMjoiZXh0ZXJuYWxDYWxsIjtpOjE7czo0OiJ0aW1lIjtpOjEzMTIzNzYyNjU7fQ==&autoplay=“>Anecdotal Objectivist
