The Brutality of Reason Example

By Ironcross One-One

Slicing and dicing things into pieces small enough
to be fed to Liberals, Kooks and Anti-Americans.
When feeding Kooks and Anti-Americans
I suggest a potato gun.

If you are the emotional liberal type, this mindspace will make you uncomfortable. If you think my logic or facts are faulty, lets discuss it. When your findings disagree with my findings, that is dialogue. But using rhetoric to disagree with science is demogoguery. No demogoguery! I usually refrain from insults, but occasionally, ignorance and liberal hypocrisy bring out the worst in me.

The Nastiness of Labels

Have you ever heard someone protest being labeled? Disturbed and indignant, "How dare you label ME? It comes as an accusation. At once, turning the poor labeled soul into a victim and deflecting scrutiny from the label and the circumstances that earned it. It is one of the lame behaviors of an overly sensitive and sissified culture.

What is the problem with labels? Every noun is a label for an entity or object. Every verb is a label for an action or behavior. The development of most words is the refinement of a label. All communication is based on the transfer of meaning. Pre-historically, it was pictures and gestures, but the development of words and written language expanded the capability for complexity.

Let me transmit some meaning.

If you don't like labels, then have a nice cup of "suck it up" and a "shut your" donut.

I'm a teacher. I get labeled all the time; it goes with the job. ;)
