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.

Military Jumper, Diver, Motorcycle Rider, Air Traffic Control and Demolitions Man. I build furniture and cabinets and can frame, roof, wire, plumb and finish a house. Can weld steel, drive heavy equipment, build pole barns and mortared rock walls. Have written one bad novel and one brilliant thesis. And I play the guitar.

Million Dollar Baby

Clint Eastwood has produced and directed a masterpiece of cinema. But unlike so many films that garner the love of the critics, it not a film about the virtues of sleaze, narcissism, crime or the demise of virtue. It is a simple and moving film about hope, courage and the overwhelming power of will. It shows the ways that love can both cripple and redeem us. And it sends you away remembering that what you get is determined by what you're willing to pay.

Life isn't about the amount of breaths in your life, it's about the amount of life in your breaths.

No film is loved by everyone. If you don't like boxing, stay home. If you don't want to watch the agony of imperfect people making the best of imperfect lives, stay home. If you can't run with the big dogs, stay on the porch. Because this film is one of the big dogs. And I mean that in the best possible way.

This film reminds of us of an important truth. Sacrifice is the road to glory.

Write that down. It's important.
