Maps and Territory

Maps and Territory

"The map is not the territory." It's both simple, and difficult to unpack. It's also related to the old saw about "the difference between theory and practice." The short version is that the "map", the model we hold in our heads, the very language that we use, has a relationship to objective and underlying reality, but it isn't actually the reality. It's an abstraction. A roadmap you look at on paper or on a screen isn't the road itself, and may not even be accurate if anyone made mistakes in the surveying or transcription, or if construction has been done…

#NonTransparent by force.

#NonTransparent by force.

Dr Kelli Ward posted an edited Scott Adams video that makes the same point I did a couple posts back. It doesn't matter how much more evidence you have of specific ways and means of wrongdoing - it's just icing on the cake. The only thing you need to know is that they kicked the observers out. The 2020 election was #NonTransparent by force. #Bullying to cheat. #StopTheSteal pic.twitter.com/qgF0lpJfkJ — Dr. Kelli Ward 🇺🇸 (@kelliwardaz) December 5, 2020 And in case they can the tweet and vid - a screenshot: As I said earlier: They kicked out the…

How About We Don't?

How About We Don't?

The botttom tweet below is a perfect example of "losing nicely" I don't hang out on twitter - no account. I also dont care if this is a Poe's law case of satire. I've personally had similar comments directed at me, and observed them being made on occasions far too numerous to count. It is wrong, and flat out immoral. From my own post on the Golden Rule - or what Taleb calls the Silver rule: Let me ask you this then. A bully advertises they’re willing to use force to get what they want. They’re not likely…

Two Movies

Two Movies

It's not a new concept, but one worth revisiting, that we are truly living in two different worlds from many of the self styled leftists, progressives, SJWs, and Democrats. To me, the biggest surprise of the last few years was the degree to which pretty little media and academic lies sway those who think that the NYT bestseller list is worth a damn. Instead of any form of reality kicking them in the teeth and making them realize that maybe they needed to re-evaluate things, they've only gotten more polarized. You can show them repeated cases of CNN butchering video…

Counting Ballots

Counting Ballots

First of all - Razor has a video up on bitchute regarding the election, and the fact that, if the Democrats get away with it, they will have effectively removed both the soap box via "hate speech" bannings in social media and the public square, and teh ballot box as ways to peacefully change the system. People can bitch about "no evidence" - meaning until the MSM and a legal system that has already joyfully allowed steps that dilute the real vote acknowledge it, and not actual evidence that something was fishy - all they like. I only need to…

Do All Votes Matter?

Do All Votes Matter?

I came across the below image recently when at an office where most were congratulating themselves that Biden "won": Mostly my reaction was to roll my eyes and keep going, until the thought crossed my mind much later. Sure, the dialectic - and an accurate - response is “ballots aren’t votes” - that just because I or anyone else fills in five thousand ballots means that they are legitimate and should be counted. Incidentally, this also addresses the following: This of course conflates two different counts. There is a unifiying principle: to have a fair, transparent, and complete count…

Reconciliation? Hah.

Reconciliation? Hah.

Reconciliation? Don't make me Laugh I listened to the supposed victory speech by the presumptive Democratic president and vice-president elect (Kamal-Joe?), and I have one thing to say about the message about working together going forward. Bullshit. I'll ignore the peans to glass ceilings and implied feminist / patriarchy / systemic racism myths about how the only thing keeping Kamala out of office and other minorities out of success was eebil straight white men (but I repeat myself). I'll also ignore the arrogant, congratulatory, and utterly condescending attitudes of many of Biden's supporters. Furthermore, for now, I'll ignore the explicit callouts for…

Trump and COVID

Trump and COVID

I was recently pointed to a video by Russel Brand discussing "who won COVID" for Trump getting contracting and healing back from getting COVID-19. In truth - though I don't strongly recommend taking the time - Brand, for all that what he is saying is filtered through a leftist lens, at least a) understands rhetoric, and b) how much the press is lying. Of course, he considers Trump's rhetoric to be lies, and the "calm, dialectic" stuff (a bit of a misapprehension on the "calm", chap) from the left to be truth. Like I…
