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.

Misnomer of the Day

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.

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.

Misnomer of the Day

Kinetic military action = an arbitrary war; in this particular case it’s an illegal war declared by the executive branch invoking the war powers act. This unconstitutional war against Libya, is so wrong for so many reasons too numerous to mention here. Instead, ask yourself what right does a community organizer have circumventing congress and committing our resources namely, American blood and fortune to a capricious act of war predicated on altruism? This foreign policy blunder has no logical purpose and serves only to empower our enemies while endangering American lives at home and abroad.

The Anecdotal Objectivist

Moving Forward

The time has come for me to change the format of this blog. I have always contended that the battle I wage is a philosophical one, and the best way to teach, the best way to learn, is by example. I hear the voices of fellow objectivist as they apply philosophy to life. Many of their questions arise in the form of predicament stemming from an event or situation. After thirty five years of objective living I am in a position to cognize, categorize, analyze, commiserate, instigate, and liberate. You see, life is a confidence game, and the only way to grow this powerful asset is by alleviating the contradictions that aggravate our daily lives, this paves the way for mastery of the more abstract particulars that elevate us as human beings.

 These days, for me, the only contradiction that exists is how to live a rational life in an irrational world. This is no easy task. Proper philosophy is the key and objectivism is the release. However, this demands discipline, discipline most people cannot fathom, nor commit, for they lack the necessary motivation required to develop their potential. It is my hope that during the course of this production, some individuals will grasp the primary concepts of objectivism, take the initiative and benefit, for they have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

 What I’m offering is a rich lifestyle, one I have chosen for myself and those who wish to join me on this life walk. The next time you see this blog it will contain what I dub The Misnomer of the Week. Here I will isolate the contentious nomenclature changes employed by irrational pragmatists; these paragons of duplicity who obfuscate reality and perpetuate emotional subjectivism in order to deceive the impressionable amongst us. Following this, there will be a link to my podcast which will be an evolving collection of anecdotes pertaining to objectivism. Here at the Tipi Wind Ranch you can expect to find literature, philosophy, horsemanship, gardening, farming, cooking, adventure, nature, and much more, as reality commands center stage in this wilderness oasis we call home.

Where are the Arabs?

Where are the Arabs, these so called rebels, who are fighting for freedom in Libya? It has been days since American forces bombed Libyan air defenses establishing a no fly zone. So where are these rebels, and why aren’t they fighting Gaddafi loyalists to retake the ground previously lost in battle? Who are these rebels and what faction of Islam do they represent?

 According to the CIA, the rebel opposition in Libya is mujahideen and El-Qaeda, the same ragtag Islamic ideologues and terrorist who support the Jihad and fought the soviets in Afghanistan back in the 1980s. Back then, the American government armed the rebels with weapons and intelligence, and after the soviets abandoned Afghanistan, the same rebels turned the weapons on each other in feudal civil war. Later, many of these armaments were turned against the west in numerous acts of aggression and terror.

 If we have learned anything: Arab Muslims can’t be trusted. Take the Arab League of Nations for example; they implored the international community, United Nations, and the United States to implement a no fly zone over Libya, then, once the bombs started dropping, they rushed to condemn the Unites States for attacking the Libyan military with air strikes. Where are these Arabs? Egypt, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, these countries have militaries and should be leading the charge in Libya.

 It seems these shiftless Arabs are waiting for an Iraqi solution, one where the United States bound by a foreign policy predicated on (Just War Theory), do all the heavy lifting, capturing or killing Gaddafi, paving the way for the next Islamic totalitarian theocracy to be ushered into power under the hoax of democracy. Maybe, if the war is protracted enough, Obama can rebuild the power grid and infrastructure of Libya, redistributing more of America’s wealth and blood in the process. We all know how the Obama administration hates to squander a good crisis.

Let’s Not Forget Iran

When contemplating war in the Middle East it is essential to identify the enemy. Before assigning American treasure and blood to attacking sovereign nations with cruise missiles, one should have good reason for declaring war. Choosing sides in a civil war is not in the best interests of the United States, nor its people. Now that the damage is done, this pragmatic administration scrambles to rationalize its illogical behavior, we are told this is a humanitarian mission to protect the citizenry (Islamic Koran waving Arabs), in Libya from dictatorial oppression. We are also reminded to the point of redundancy that Muammar Gaddafi has committed acts of terrorism in the past, and that somehow, this is payback. This indecisive act of war is so wrong, for so many reasons a deaf, blind, mute could lecture on the unforeseen consequences of this blunder.

 Let us not forget the true enemy is, and always has been Iran. While Gaddafi was committing acts of terror against Americans, Theocratic Iran was committing acts of war against the United States. If one juxtaposes the two hostiles we discover Gaddafi bombed a commercial jet liner over Lockerby Scotland killing civilians (an act of terrorism), meanwhile Iran was seizing an American embassy taking diplomat hostages (an act of war). While Gaddafi was bombing a nightclub in Berlin (an act of terrorism) Iran was bombing an army barracks in Beirut killing American soldiers (an act of war). While Libya was abandoning its nuclear ambitions, Iran was escalated theirs, vowing to use nuclear weapons on Israel and the West.

 While Libya was forsaking its terrorist ways, Iran was sponsoring terrorism around the world, and to this day supplies the opposition in Iraq and Afghanistan with intelligence and weaponry that kill American soldiers on two battle fronts (a blatant act of war against the United States). Yet, the Obama administration chooses to declare war on Libya for “humanitarian reasons”, abdicating America’s constitution and sovereignty to the whims of the United Nations.

 This is wrong (not to mention unconstitutional), for America to choose sides in a civil war, that has nothing to do with American national security or prosperity. We have no financial interest in Libya with the exception of squandering American fortune and blood.

 This is just another attempt at nation building which happens to be an American foreign policy mandate, one Obama has recently relegated to the United Nations for their disposal. This raises a serious question: with so much civil strife in the world, who is next? Why not commit American forces to the Sudan, the Congo, Serbia or Chechnya. Let us not forget, Iran commits these same human rights atrocities with impunity, killing those who oppose the theocracy.

 Iran is the enemy that threatens the world, promoting their brutal, medieval theocracy of totalitarian oppression, threatening to destroy civilization as we know it. The Obama administration continues to bury its head in the sand, unwilling to identify the true enemy in our midst while continuing its perverted social experiment, redistributing American wealth in a futile attempt to liberate a hostile, feudal society, consecrated in violent mysticism, a feudal society that demonizes freedom, individual rights and capitalism as the vices of infidels.
