Luck is Important

Luck is Important

Luck is important; and it’s been a part of the story since day one. What if you were born an Aids baby? What if you had mental retardation because of an alcoholic mother? What if you had a major heart condition that required immediate surgery? These are just a few of the things that can – and do – go wrong everyday.

You need luck. From the moment you enter the world, there’s a “roll of the dice” element at play. You’re like a poker table or a race track. You need a rabbit’s foot.

You can work hard, believe in yourself, and chase your dreams. But don’t be naive…always remember the importance of luck.

You need the guardian angels, watching over you.

How to Answer a Difficult Question

How to Answer a Difficult Question

How do you answer a difficult question? It’s very simple…by asking yourself a separate question:

Mr. Cleaver would choose a healthy life. He’d lean in the direction of patriarchal headship, or masculine honor. He’d lean in the direction of responsibility and courage. He’d lean in the direction of fatherhood—in other words, he’s the foundation of a country.

ward and june
Ward Cleaver was a proud American father with a loving family. In other words, an enemy of the Cultural Marxist agenda.

You should emulate Ward Cleaver—not Anderson Cooper or Bruce Jenner.

Are you ready to accept a throne? Are you ready to battle the forces of evil? The time has come for you to rise…the accept your place on the Stead of Wisdom. The world is waiting for you now…and you’re close to the Land of Promise.

Remember: Your happiness is a threat to the Mainstream Media. They receive an erection when you falter and they masturbate when you fail. They want you to have tattoos and abortions. They want your soul to be riddled with resentment. All they have is subterfuge—everything a duplicitous dealing. Everything a mixing of the message: one good, one bad, one good, one bad, etc.

Be like Ward Cleaver. He was the correct model…the Man of Honor.

Book Review: The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith

Book Review: The Wealth of Nations by Adam Smith

The Wealth of Nations is—far and away—the most difficult book I’ve read.  The writing is dense and the ideas are complex. The book is a behemoth…a paragon in the Libraries of History.

Smith is a legendary thinker. He covers a wide array of topics, from the Chinese economy to the barter system of Ancient Peru. During the process, we realize that we’re in the presence of a GREAT MAN. He’s an economist, a historian, a philosopher…in short, he’s the Age of Enlightenment personified.

Here’s what I took away from the book:

Agriculture is a Vital Part of a Country’s Economy

Smith believed in agriculture. He points out that a country must—first and foremost—be able to feed itself. It needs to produce bread, rice, etc. And when a country cannot feed itself, it’s an economic liability.

The examples are numerous—just look at the Irish Potato famine. Once they lost the ability to feed themselves, a tragedy ensued. Another example can be seen in modern-day Venezuela, which did away with much of its agriculture. When a financial crisis occurred, the people were lacking in basic food commodities. Just look at how many supermarkets were raided in downtown Caracas.

Paper Money Should Be Connected to a Precious Money

According to Smith, paper money needs to be tied to a precious metal: gold, silver, etc. This prevents the country from printing paper money at will, which leads to inflation. Smith provides numerous examples, going as far back as the Roman Empire’s use of bronze as a way to stabilize its currency.

Needless to say, the United States is currently in this dilemma. Since it left the gold standard, the inflation has slowly been rising. This accounts for the fact that a dinner that once was worth five cents (such as in 1920) is now worth fifteen dollars. If the situation spirals out of control—such as in Venezuela—then the paper money can become pointless. Note how in Caracas, you need a backpack full of money to buy a lunch.

Every Armed Conflict Has an Economic Story

The Wealth of Nations was written in 1776…the year of American independence. Smith goes into great detail about the war. He points to the economic underpinnings of the battle, explaining an angle that’s rarely talked about. Through this lens, the American War of Independence was more than a fight for sovereignty—it’s was an economic battle.

How many wars are fought over money? What’s the real story behind any armed conflict? What about the Syrian battle? The Iraqi invasion? Money plays a huge role in these conflicts. Smith reminds us about the “unspoken cause of war” the conflict that’s always at play—the battle between a creditor and a debtor.

Conclusion

I highly recommend The Wealth of Nations. Regardless of your major, you should read this book. It will bring you up to speed with “the best in what’s been thought and said.” Adam Smith should be on the bookshelf of any self-respecting bibliophile.

Pain is the Father of Pleasure

Pain is the Father of Pleasure

The point was made by Nietzsche in Twilight of the Idols:

For the Greeks a sexual symbol was therefore the most sacred symbol, the real profundity in the whole of ancient piety. Every single element in the act of procreation, of pregnancy, and of birth aroused the highest and most solemn feelings. In the doctrine of the mysteries, pain is pronounced holy: the pangs of the woman giving birth consecrate all pain; and conversely all becoming and growing — all that guarantees a future — involves pain.

So very true.

You entered the world in an orgy of pain—your mother bleeding on a delivery table, screaming as you left her body. And then your greatest victories—from infancy to adulthood—were forged by adversity: the heartache of unrequited love, the death of a good friend, etc. Your “growing and becoming”…the result of a solemn battle.

You ought to thank God for your pain!!! Without hatred, would you know about love? Without a bloody war, would you understand peace?

Dear reader, your happiness is shaped by the Storm of Adversity. Your pleasure is born in the Fire of Agony.

Pain is the father of pleasure.

Make a “To Do” List and Limit Your TV Viewership

Make a “To Do” List and Limit Your TV Viewership

There’s an old saying: “The devil loves a pair of idle hands.” Well the same applies to your thoughts. In other words, “The devil loves a mind at rest.”

The mind – if it wanders aimlessly – will veer into negativity. The trend is exacerbated by a corrosive media. Everywhere you look – from television to film – it’s one piece of poison after the next.

So what to do? The solution is twofold:

Make a “To-Do” List

A “To-Do” list will keep you focused. You’ll be centered on a goal, whatever that may be. Include a large goal with a small one…it doesn’t matter, really. You can place the items next to each another, under one another, etc. The main idea is that you’re smashing. You’re climbing the mountain of achievement.

By spending time on a “To-Do” list, you’re robbing the media of your attention. That’ll drive ’em crazy. Remember: They’d love to be feeding on your flesh, devouring your soul like a zombie. You don’t believe me? Take a look at Kathy Griffin….

Limit Your Television Viewership

95% of television is propaganda – and the goal is the destruction of the family. Television died after Leave it to Beaver, essentially. And now the powers-that-be have a 24/7 war against America. They’re a demonic force, operating from the 405 to the Capital Beltway.

They want to see Ward Cleaver masturbating in the corner of a Motel 6, while his wife gets spit roasted by the offensive line of the Miami Dolphins. They want Wally Cleaver to have an arm-sleeve tattoo, a heroin addiction, and a fatal case hepatitis C. And they want the Beaver to throw a Molotov cocktail at a police officer during the Antifa rally.

Conclusion

You have to fight to be happy. And the best way to fight is twofold: Make a “To-Do” list and limit your TV viewership. You’ll find that your days are brighter and your nights are warmer.

Playboy Magazine is Now Embracing the Gay Agenda

Playboy Magazine is Now Embracing the Gay Agenda

Playboy magazine…a refuge for the gay male.

No, I’m serious. Just take a look the following story in the latest issue.

DCZ0IOAVwAArs6X
What every man wants in Playboy magazine…an article about gay sex.

Gay sex in Playboy magazine? That’s like a Tofu steak. A vegetarian lion. A sugar-free mango. It’s an oxymoron, a contradiction in terms.

But we’re in the new America. And cultural subterfuge is a 24/7 game. The liberal mindset is attack, attack, attack. And Playboy magazine, born in the 1950s, is their mortal enemy. It’s a world of beautiful women and heterosexual male desire; in other words, the two  things that liberals hate the most. So they cannot sleep – they won’t rest – until the magazine is serving their twisted Weltanschauung.

Disney suffered a similar death. That noble creation, born in the mind of a high genius (Walt Disney) now made to lick the stiletto heels of Der Feminism. The Mickey Mouse movies are gone, replaced with a “guurl-power” agenda. How can you stomach it? Is there a movie worth watching? A music worth listening to? Everything has been run through the Pink Floyd meat grinder.

“If you don’t read about the gay sex, you can’t have any pudding! Yes, you with the Playboy magazine in your hand, stand still Laddie!”

Remember this: Liberal do not create…they destroy: Ghostbusters, Star Wars, Disney….and now Playboy. They will not rest until the world resembles their image. And what is that image? Brace myself, my dear reader…and place your hand over mouth (in case you just ate lunch):

What Was the Greatest Wrestling Moniker of All Time?

What Was the Greatest Wrestling Moniker of All Time?

The answer: Haystacks Calhoun.

“The gargantuan wrestler [600 pounds] was one of the foremost drawing cards during the industry’s “Golden Age” of the 1950s and 1960s while sporting his trademark white T-shirt, blue overalls, and horseshoe necklace. He is recognized as being among the chief pioneers for the sport’s super-heavyweight attractions.”

Not one haystack, mind you. That would be too small, too meager. A 600-pound-man is plural. More than one. He’s a myriad, a cornucopia, and a plethora.

Perhaps as a boy…perhaps then he was a singular Haystack. But those days are over. He overcame anorexia, defeated the demons of bulimia. Now he’s a king, high atop the Mountains of Girth.

Haystacks Calhoun ties up an opponent.

Other wrestlers had interesting names: King Kong Bundy, The Iron Sheik, etc. And those were nice…they took us to different world. But at the end of the day, they were runners-up at the Nomenclature Awards. For the greatest wrestling moniker belonged to one man, and one man alone.

His name was Haystacks Calhoun (1934-1989).
