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.

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.

The Complexities of Being Human

Just happened on a site that has anonymous secrets that were delivered by postcards.

I have never seen a work that does such a job of expressing the complexity of being human. Joy and pain, reason and madness, celebration and regret. But mostly pain, madness and regret. I suggest this comes from our fundamentally optimistic nature. Most people believe they are entitled to some goodness in their lives. When they don't feel there's enough goodness, it's a painful experience.

I'm not sure what my secret would be. Perhaps this: I cannot deny the spiritual force that protects me from the consequences of my failures.

I have led a charmed life. I have survived dangers and risks beyond the imagination of most. I have escaped from scrapes and scandals with barely a scratch. (The police do know who I am, though.) I'm not as talented as many of the folks I work with. When my purpose in this life is fulfilled (whatever it may be), I imagine cosmic forces are gonna come collecting on all those delayed payments. You can cheat the house for a while, but when you get caught, they're gonna break your fingers.

Being Human is Complex and Wonderful. Don't waste it.

Stop reading this crap right now and go hug someone. Then check out the postcards.
