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.

Effort, Success and Happiness

What is success? -
Well, it's whatever each of us thinks it is.

It's a summation of the future we might like to create. Success is what motivates us.

Happiness is the summation of satisfaction and contentment with the present.

To be happy, you must be satisfied or content in the moment.

If you have put forward your best effort and are making progress, be happy.
If you have put forward your best effort and are stalled, you should be content.
If you have put forward your best effort and failed miserably, you should shrug it off, laugh about it and try again.

Effort is a key to happiness. When we have put forth a valiant effort, we can be satisfied in the moment.
For me, the happiness that follows a failure marked by brilliance, persistence and courage dwarfs the satisfaction from an effortless success.

Effort = Happiness
