We are entitled. Of course we are entitled. As one of 75 million Millennials in America today, it’s something I hear quite often. The usual arguments have to do with recent college graduates demanding a million dollar paycheck the day after they get their degree. Or, I’ll hear a story about how we’re over the top on the politically correct scale and that we want to shut down free speech when we disagree with it. Continue reading “Millennials”
Imagine if you knew were able to predict that every decade or so that a particular natural disaster would hit the area you live. Oh wait, we already do that?
Apparently the folks in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands forgot this and were ill-prepared. But not to worry, the US has plenty of money for humanitarian relief and you we can be as irresponsible as we want, right?
As predicted in my inaugural post Puerto Rico is fighting for this month’s most oppressed award. San Juan’s mayor giving her press conferences in her “NASTY” t-shirt and “WE’RE DYING” shirt… she’s not a Trump-hater at all, right? The cries that Trump is treating them like animals has never been louder – but it’s simply a lie.
Countless resources, both goods and people, have been sent to the island to assist through the catastrophe. FEMA has delivered 4 million meals, 6 million liters of water and thousands upon thousands of tarps and rolls of roofing material. In addition we have dispatched 330 DHHS staffers, Army Corps of Engineers, EPA and DoD officials, including many helicopters and planes. The response to this effort has been overwhelming.
So what’s the problem? Many in the island’s government want everything done for them. Their unions are refusing to work without substantial pay. Their government is simply denying any culpability for the state of things.
Long before the series of powerful hurricanes that pelted the island, Puerto Rico had a very faulty power supply and immense debt. Before the storm, the power authority had already declared bankruptcy making power outages a routine occurrence on the island.
In 2015 a report published by the Heritage Foundation stated, “Puerto Rico is not experiencing a temporary recession; it is in economic decline”. This is what has caused a mass exodus from the island with residents seeking better opportunities on the mainland.
The already crumbling infrastructure of the island prior to Maria saw a fleeing population which was a result of their own policies and flawed and corrupt government officials, no fault of the federal government.
News organizations everywhere and social media outlets would have you believing we have done nothing for Puerto Rico. Pretty much everyone has seen or heard of “Trump throwing paper towels at Puerto Ricans like they are animals!”. You really need to have a keen sense of bullshit in today’s media storm. Read more. Watch more. Don’t live on cropped agenda-based media.
Being offended simply means you have a justified emotion (as measured by society) relating to a personal experience and as such it becomes much easier to legislate based on that emotion. This is why the difference between that emotion by itself and being offended is important. Our morals may dictate our sense of justice, but the mechanism for this is being offended. This is my argument for treating emotion and offense separately. Let me also make it clear: if you go into a comedy club, don’t be offended, it’s rather offensive… Continue reading “Dissecting Offense – how dare you!”
Most people are familiar with Darwinian concepts of evolution in varying degrees. In terse summary – he theorized that all species arise and develop through the process of natural selection, through inherited variance that increases survival and reproductive ability.

Mental illness remains somewhat of an inconclusive field on medical science. We have a pretty comprehensive understanding of that it means to have normal brain chemistry and what lack of mental condition looks like but still lack a full understanding of the breadth of conditions that afflict humans.

Not even 24 hours have passed since this horrific tragedy in Las Vegas, in retrospect we shouldn’t call it a tragedy, let us call it what it is, Pure Evil – and liberals are already chomping at the bit. In the wake of the Route 91 massacre, Hillary didn’t even wait a whole five minutes before politicizing the catastrophe. As people were reeling and frantically trying to get in contact with their loved ones to verify their well-being, Hillary is sitting behind her keyboard thinking of her best jab at the NRA.

Here we are 90 days until the end of the year and already so many people vying for the #1 spot of Most Oppressed – who will reign supreme?
Yesterday I came across this article with the title “Thousands of Women March Against Racism and Oppression“. I guess it’s time for vagina hat liberals to resurface after they lost the spotlight with Hillary’s loss. Conveniently hundreds of the protestors “took a knee” *Insert uncontrollable laughter*. I would think women would be against taking a knee, you know… the Patriarchy and all. They claimed to be marching to the ongoing wave of animosity against Blacks and people of color. Seems to me that people forgot what it’s like to be a kid. Do any of you remember growing up and wanting to go against anything your parents or school told you to do? Yea – well this is what’s happening now, more and more people are standing up and saying enough is enough, we are rebelling. Continue reading “October’s Oppressed”
Oppression [uh–presh–uh n] – noun, 1.) the exercise of authority or power in a burdensome, cruel, or unjust manner.
It would seem today that everyone (except Whites, Males & Christians of course *cue sarcasm*) is oppressed. With a true lack of hardships and struggle in the 21st century, we have reached a point where we actively seek things to concern ourselves with, particularly things that they truly don’t care about. The media placates these groups and gives credence to their cries of injustice. Continue reading “Inaugural Post”
