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.

A Tale of Two Backpacks

There's a timid little guy that comes into my office a couple of times a week wearing a vacuum cleaner backpack. He empties the trash from my trash can and runs the vacuum around the office. He won't even knock if the door is closed and he works alongside the woman that scrubs the bathrooms.

The troops out on the floor also carry backpacks. They carry rucksacks full of targeting equipment to help them take out the international garbage. They are aggressive about it. They aren't timid about knocking when the door is closed either.

Do you know what happens in a life to determine which rucksack you carry? There's nothing dishonorable about cleaning up the trash but there's no lasting glory or accomplishment in it either.

To excel and self-actualize or to drift from unexceptional job to unexceptional job.
To be something exceptional or to be something plain.
To be someone that people notice or to be someone rarely notice.
To be... or not to be... that is the question.

Sorry for mixing the Dickens with the Shakespeare.
