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 Stem Table or Trunk Table

The german word stamm means stem or trunk as in the parts of a a plant or tree. The word tisch means table. When one goes into a german pub, there will often be a table designated as the stammtisch or trunk table. It is a table that is always to be left for the regulars. Often there is a sign that loosely translates to: "The people that sit here are the ones that always sit here".

There is a stammtisch here at The Brutality of Reason. There are some loyal readers that are showing up to read, some consistently hitting the site within minutes of a post. I know this because the counter shows peaks of traffic that coincide with new posts. I've watched it a couple of times just to be sure. Don't worry, it doesn't tell me who you are or anything like that. If you clicked through from a referring blog, it will sometimes have that information. I usually go check to see who's advertising us. It also says what ISP it sends the page to. The ones like, and don't give much away. But my wife is on a little ISP with a small footprint so I know if she's been on. You that have established yourselves as the loyal readership in this first month or so are the "stammtisch".

The Money Shot here is...I would like to have the help of the stammtisch here. I need feedback in order to know that I'm thinking and writing about stuff that is consistently interesting. I want you to post and tell me if I've missed the mark. Iwas kind of surprised that I didn't get a peep about the Polygamy/andry thing. Sheesh - if you think the gay marriage thing has been controversial, you wait until this one gets unleashed. My wife and I sat up late talking about it the other night. Massive Societal Tsunami coming. Seek moral high ground and well constructed argument.

Lets hear from the stammtish - you know who you are. You too Zack!
