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.

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"?
