My beliefs are truths. Your beliefs are crap. So says my dogma.

January 25, 2010 – Comments (9)

My beliefs are truths. Your beliefs are crap. Why? Good question. It is because my dogma's leaders have told me so when I was too young to know any better. Their deeply seeded narrowly focused world view keeps me safe from you and your dogma. If we discover we share the same dogma we can wag our tails happily in unison. If we find we differ then the teeth and claws we have been taught to bear by our dogmas must be  put to use. After all, what good is it to know you are right if you are not prepared to fight over it? Oh, and I always win my fights. Always! It is good to be so right!   [more]

The Independent: US waves white flag in disastrous 'war on drugs'

January 18, 2010 – Comments (2)

I thought this story to be interesting. The reporter writes with a "nanny-nanny boo-boo" tone of UK faux superiority. When I read it I hear Eric Idol's indignant voice in my head saying the words. Here is the link.

Taking The High Road

January 14, 2010 – Comments (12)

Last week I wrote a blog about not letting yourself get pulled into the mud by blogs designed to start a fight. I failed to include those that wish to start fights within our own blogs. Click here for such an example. I lost my cool and it shows in comment #10 & #11. I should have counted to 1,000, had a beer and said thirty Hale Warrens before deciding to reply. I do have to confess that I believe the provoker in question was probably out to take me down a peg or make a name for himself as opposed to making a valid point. I have not taken the time to report this sad soul to TMF for his spaming/attacking/rude ways. If you would like to I won't stop you. His kind only comes back with a new name and the same old garbage.  [more]

Avatar is Kelo v. City of New London?

January 12, 2010 – Comments (1)

Avatar is Kelo v. City of New London? David Henderson of the Washington Post seems to think so. Give me a break! I just want to watch a movie, forget about the real world for a while. Mr. Henderson is a fellow libertarian but that does not mean he gets a free pass from me for wanting to leech off the success of this movie for his own personal gain. I cry bullstein and shennanigans!  The left tried this crap with the third Star Wars movie by claiming it was an anti Dubya film. I'm still irked about that. They persited with their opinion even after Lucas came out and said the script had been in its final form since the Clinton administration and had nothing to do with current affairs of 2003.  [more]

January 11, 2010 – Comments (12)

I am here to tick you off!!! Nah, just kidding. But some bloggers are. Think about it. You know them. They constant droan on about how their political point of view, investing philosophy or ability to predict the market is better than yours. Come on, you know their rhetoric fairly well by now. Why do you give them power to effect your mood? As a fully functioning adult you have the ability to control your emotions. Don't let yourself be pulled into the mud.   [more]

I only keep 35-40 picks in play at any one time. If I were you I would short all my picks because something is wrong and going to correct itself with avengence.
