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.

Gay Syndrome Research Update

Here at the Times, they print a story that's been effectively spiked here in the States. Researchers at Oregon State University in the city of Corvallis and at the Oregon Health and Science University in Portland have isolated hormonal treatment that may prevent homosexual behaviors in sheep.

Naturally, homo-advocacy groups are outraged. This is because they are not simply interested in making sure gays are not mistreated. They are interested in increasing the size of the gay population.

Somehow, they draw the conclusion that a mother taking a treatment to assure that her child does not have a predisposition to homosexuality would be cruel. So I wonder, would they also think it cruel if a gay parent used a treatment to assure that the child had a gay predisposition? I doubt it. It's part of the agenda that there should be as much gay behavior as possible. From the article:
Professor Charles Roselli, the Health and Science University biologist leading the research, defended the project.

He said: “In general, sexuality has been under-studied because of political concerns. People don’t want science looking into what determines sexuality.

“It’s a touchy issue. In fact, several studies have shown that people who believe homosexuality is biologically based are less homophobic than people who think that this orientation is acquired.”

The research is being peer-reviewed by a panel of scientists in America, demonstrating that it is being taken seriously by the academic community.

Potentially, the techniques could one day be adapted for human use, with doctors perhaps being able to offer parents pre-natal tests to determine the likely sexuality of offspring or a hormonal treatment to change the orientation of a child.
Pro-Homo hacks don't want the homo-gene myth debunked. When people stop believing the myth, tolerance for gay behavior and all of the human cost associated with it goes out the window. By the way, this research mirrors some research done in the Netherlands that indicated pre-natal hormone levels might affect sexual predisposition.

If this research is correct, the gay syndrome appears to be caused by a pre-natal hormone level. That makes it a medical condition that can be cured or prevented. If it can be cured or prevented then it is not normal and if it is not normal it is a disease. Ooops! did I write that out loud? They'll all have their panties in a twist now.

Oh yes, I almost forgot, the Pro-Homo hacks did remember the obligatory comparison of homo-lesbo-criticism to Nazism. Yeah, Yeah, anyone that criticizes the leftist-homo-anti-American, environmental kook-global warming agenda is a Nazi. We've heard it already - give it a break.

When someone throws "Homophobic" at you - correct them. It's Homo-lesbo-criticism. It's not fear of homosexuality, it is serious critical examination of its causes, behaviors, culture and human cost. It was coined here at the Brutality of Reason. You heard it here first.

What Gives Me Joy

The Solstice just passed. The days are getting longer.

Other things that give me joy:

It gives me joy that our unit didn't suffer any casualties (again).
It gives me joy that some of my troops that were lonely and unhappy are in love and radiant.
It gives me joy that troops that were uncommitted have found purpose in their service.
It gives me joy to see a troop that was timid and reserved become bold and decisive.
It gives me joy to see troops that arrived untempered embrace training hardship as the road to superiority.
It gives me joy to help retiring troops start second careers.
It gives me joy to see a decorated veteran of 5 deployments have a chance to sit one out.
It gives me joy to know that my troops are the best trained and equipped on the face of the earth.
It gives me joy to serve such devoted patriots and to be paid to do it.
It gives me joy to look at pictures of my first grandchild.
It gives me joy to see the look on my wife's face when I do a chore for her before she can get to it.
It gives me joy when my totally uncoordinated dog actually catches a thrown ball.
It gives me joy that the engine swap I did for my daughter actually worked.

Make a list of the things that give you joy. If you can't think of any, then you must be spending your time and effort on the wrong things. If I don't post again until then...Merry Christmas. If you aren't Christian, have a Merry Christmas anyway. If you are offended by that, get a life.

Time to Remember and Reflect

62 years ago, the battle for Bastogne raged. The German counter-offensive was launched on the 16th of December, in the following 3 days, the Americans took nearly 10,000 casualties. By the morning of 19 December, the 101st Airborne had been thrown in to block the advance. They were lightly-clothed, lightly-armed and under-fed. They were light infantry underdogs up against heavy armor and artillery in the cold of winter and completely without armor or air support.

Through freezing days and colder nights that lasted sixteen hours from dusk to dawn, they huddled together for warmth as they passed the long minutes between the brutal assaults. Those paratroopers that survived the experience generally regard it as the defining hardship of the war. It is the subject of their nightmares. 10,000 casualties in 3 days. 19,000 in roughly 10 days.

It swells my heart with pride. It is not the easy things that define us. It is the hardest things we do that define us. I embrace this piece of American History. It is part of the reputation and respect that paratroopers command. It is part of the intimidating fabric of the American Warrior. Any enemy leader that ignores the intangible combat superiority of the American Warrior does so at his own risk. Americans are almost impossible to beat at the tactical level. Generally, they inflict more casualties than they take even when on offense. In defense, they generally shred the opposition.

I have walked with such giants. Maybe I'm not one of them, but I have walked with them. I helped train many of them, and I've helped bury a few. There are no longer a lot of them. Hopefully, there are enough.

Hell, we have women in uniform that are goddesses of violence. The way these gals integrate in this non-linear battlefield and rip into the opposition is unprecedented in history. You hear that you misogynistic bigots? Our women can whip your men! All we need to do is unite as a nation and the enemy will cower in fear and beg for quarter.

I yearn for the nation that could offer up 2 Million such men for it's defense and could enthusiastically suffer 400,000 casualties in order to win. A nation that did not doubt itself and supported the national strategy even when it had setbacks. So ferocious a nation that the world gaped in awe at its power and resolve for 30 years afterward.

Poverty of Character and Intellect

On television last weekend with Chris Wallace, Teddy Kennedy, (brother of Catholic Saints John and Bobby of Hyannisport) made the following statement:
KENNEDY: Your figures are absolutely wrong as we've had increase now in the last five years of the number of children that are living in poverty in the United States of America increased by 1,700,000. We have 36 million Americans that are going to bed hungry every night. Thirty-six million Americans and 12 million of those are children! We've had the total number of people that have fallen back into poverty during this Bush administration. We have five million more people that are dropped back into poverty.
If I were a highly paid media guy, here's the questions I would have asked:
ME: You are saying that 12% of the country is going to bed hungry at night. How can that be possible after transferring almost 10 trillion dollars from the pockets of hard-working productive Americans to the non-productive poor over the past 40 years?

ME: I understand that the way poverty is defined is different than it was in 1965. Why is the definition of poverty different now than it was 40 years ago?

ME: If we used the 1965 standard, how many people are still in poverty?

ME: Shouldn't the government definition of poverty be static? For example, if poverty is defined as the least affluent 10%, there will always be 10% in poverty. Isn't that what we're doing when the poverty level is indexed every year?

ME: You've been in the Senate nearly all of those 40 years. Are you saying that you are a failure and need to be replaced?

ME: If we've made no progress in the war on poverty in 40 years, that sounds like a quagmire. But it sounds like you're still insisting that wealth transfers are the answer. How come "staying the course" in Iraq for three years is stubborn and inflexible, but staying the course for forty years in the war on poverty is wise and cogent? It sounds like hypocrisy to me.

ME: You are saying the number of poor is growing. How much of that is because of the change in the measuring standard?

ME: How much did poverty drop from 1989 to 1991 while the Democrats had control of the elected branches?

ME: Critics say that the homeless and the hungry are in those circumstances because of life choices but there are still programs in place to help them. Can you produce a hundred people that have gone to bed hungry that have applied for public assistance, have applied for private charity, and have responsibly used the assets that were made available?

Teddy doesn't believe this tripe. It is just his strategy for consolidating the power of the government. He wants people to be in poverty so they are dependent on government. He wants you to think poverty is a massive problem. He wants you to believe the government is the solution. He wants a world government. He resents the creative and productive masses that don't want or need his help. His power is distilled from your tax money and he wants more of both. Teddy is a liar. I don't have an fancy college degree but I'll debate him on this subject on national TV anytime and anywhere and I'll kick his ass from one end of the venue to the other.

You'll never see him debate this anywhere unless the environment is controlled in his favor. He is suffers from a poverty of character that cannot be rectified without a backbone transplant and a self-inflicted poverty of intellect that came with liberal overdoses of alcohol and liberal overdoses of liberalism. I'm afraid there's no prescription for curing that. Call Michael J. Fox and see if embryonic stem cell therapy might help.

X minus 2 and Counting

On December 21 at precisely 7:22 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, winter begins in the Northern Hemisphere. Less than 2 days to the solstice. I love the solstice... or at least I love knowing that the miserably short days are getting longer. As I've said before, I understand completely the pagan drive to set a huge log on fire and dance around it naked. Some deep primeval urge makes me want to do it. I probably won't do it, but only because the neighbors have been polite this year.

Today the power came back on after being off for 110 hours. We chopped wood, carried water, put the perishables on the back porch (freezing weather) and lit the house with hurricane candles and oil lamps. We heated water on the wood stove and bathed with wash cloths. Now the well is working the water is hot and that HVAC is controlling the climate.

Screw primitivity, I like my comforts. What would you call me? A "post industrial techno-enabled sun worshipper"?

American Empire

In my private musings recently, there's been a subtle theme that keeps surfacing. I can't really define it except as American Imperialism. American Imperialism is not like Roman Imperialism or British Imperialism or any of the expansionist tendencies of so many empires of the past. America does not want to control more real estate. America just wants more America. While on the surface that seems a contradiction or paradox but it's actually simple. Just a we have self determination, we want others to have self determination.

Mullahs do not want people to have self determination. Saudi Royals do not want people to have self-determination. Robert Mugabe, Fidel Castro, Kim Sung-Il and Senor Chavez do not want people to have self determination.

America is seductive. It reaches all around the world and affects everything and everywhere it has long arms and strong hands. Clothed in business suits, the real soldiers of American Empire travel to the far corners armed with dollars to secure vital supplies to feed the empire.

The enemy is trying to cut off our fingers. He wants to isolate us from markets and intimidate our friends.

Would you fight someone who was trying to cut off your fingers?

No Such Thing as Un-winnable

A lot in the news about the un-winnable war in Iraq. Such poopycock. I mean poppycock. Whatever. When you want to create a future, you have to be willing to supplant the present at whatever cost it might require. If it takes heat-bring heat. If it takes smoke-use smoke. If it takes fire-strike a match. You have to be willing to use whatever is necessary. The Kurds are cooperating. The Shiites and and the Sunnis are resisting. Bring heat, smoke and fire. Brutally kill the resistance. Mookie al Sadr and whoever else. When a couple of US troops are killed by a sniper, carpet bomb the neighborhood and send the signal that you will not be tampered with. They kill 2, you kill 2000.

Once order is restored, then you can impose democracy or anything else you want. If that strategy was used in the first place, it would already be saving lives. This is the lesson of history. If you want to win, you need to be willing to kill people and smash things.

A war is not over until one side quits. If you aren't willing to quit, you can't be beaten, unless you get annihilated. I don't think we face that possibility. Let's decide to win, bring the heat and then reshape the world. It's better to be envied and feared than laughed at and scorned. Yes, we'll make some enemies. Kofi Annan will talk bad about us. France, China and Russia will be pissed. Third World idiots will protest in the street. Iraq and Syria will cower in fear.

People may badmouth the Yankees, but they are yardstick that teams are measured by. We are the yardstick that countries are measured by and they hate us for it. They envy our wealth and our arrogance. Screw em'

There is no such thing as an un-winnable war. You just have to believe you can win, you have to be willing to win and you have to convince the opponent that you will win by executing a dominating strategy.
