The "Don't Know Where or When" Vacation

Hello Lieutenants, Economists, Agents in the Field, and respectable others!

Your beloved Captain is taking a motorcycle ride vacation out west.  This is the first true vacation I've had since I can remember since there is no itinerary, schedule, or destination.  I'm just going "west."  I for certain will be in the Black Hills area of South Dakota and Denver, but that's about the only concrete plans for this trip.  Don't know where I'm going after that, and I don't know when I'm coming back, and I don't care. 

If you happen to be in the "west" let the ole Captain know.  He just may be in your neck of the woods and would like to grab a Rumpie or a beer.  Regardless, posts may be a bit infrequent, though since I'm in no rush I very well could just hole up in a hotel room out in some small town and just write for a week.  You never know.

Forget Monthly, Try Bi-Weekly

I thought monthly terrorist attacks was the new-normal leftists and Muslim terrorists wanted to impose on the West.  I guess it has to be bi-weekly now.

Corporate Virtue Signaling is Just Slimy Marketing

Virtue signaling, in short, is where you take a position or advocate a position as a mean to signal to others that you're virtuous.

You may not actually be virtuous.
You may not even believe in the position, lying entirely about what you advocate.

But that isn't your main goal.

Your main goal is to convince sheeple that you are a good person, you care about the poor, you care about minorities, you're morally superior, ie - you have virtue.

Of course, in reality, you really don't.  You don't care about the environment.  You don't care about the wage gap.  You don't care minorities.  You don't care about the children.  And you certainly aren't morally superior.  But if you can convince weak-minded people, especially those who also wish to virtue signal, then you can sucker them into do things for you.

For example Target.

I loath Target with all my heart.

Not because of their politics or even that they allowed whoever to use whatever bathroom in their stores.  I'm actually for transgendered rights.  It's the gallons of smugness they have about themselves and how they just outright lie to their customers about their corporate morality, if not superiority.

They donate 5% of their pre-tax profits back to the community.
They go out of their way to hire waifs of women as security guards.
They're body positive.
Anybody can use whichever bathroom they want.

Oh, and they will remind you of this every two seconds if you're in one of their stores.

Let's be clear what's going on here.

Corporations realize that the socio-political trend in the US is drifting to the left.  Not just in terms of economics, but socially as well.  Ever since the 90's a huge trend in deriving one's value from any one of a number of approved, leftist, politically correct political stances has occurred.  Going green, being a feminist, organic, non-GMO, diversity, the environment, etc. etc.  And since now at least half of the population derives their entire life-value from their beliefs (and not their accomplishments) corporations know these beliefs are the only thing a lot of people have in their lives.  Therefore, if they virtue signal to these sheeple that they too are (choose your plate of BS)

for the whales
for the snails

these sheeple will buy their product.

In other words when you see Chipolte CONSTANTLY remind you about how organic it is, it isn't because their founders had some moral crusade they truly believed in.  They just wanted your money.

The body positive ads you'll see in women's magazine?  Yeah, the editor doesn't care that if you're fat...or...unhealthy...of that you're likely to be fat and childless by 50.  They got your money.

And the colleges that sell you sheep $150,000 doctorates in some SJW BS crusaderist "studies?"  The ones where you'll constantly have to beg charities or the taxpayers for government handouts so you can do absolutely nothing to advance the world?  The ones where the student loans will cripple you for the rest of your life?  They don't care, they got your money.

I absolutely love it when leftists always claim corporations have all this power to "trick" people into buying their product.  But yet, while they're at the trough, slopping up the virtue signaling slop these companies sell them, they have the clueless gall to tell me they're too smart to fall for it.

So carry on virtue signaling leftists!  Buy your fair trade (as far as you know) Starbuck's coffee.  Buy your slave-labor Apple product.  And please shop at Target.  Because you're too stupid to see corporations' slimy marketing for what it truly is - virtue signaling euphemistically paraded as "Corporate Social Responsibility."

Traits are No Substitute for Accomplishments

If you've been paying attention, you've noticed an increased amount of insanity in the population.  This insanity manifests itself in many ways, resulting in a relentless onslaught of what is seemingly an incoherent potpourri of madness.

31 flavors of pansexual genders.
Why everybody else has "privilege" and should let blood for those who don't.
Interstates blocked by Black Lives Matters (though it is seemingly only white people).
Majoring in the world's easiest, but most worthless degrees...and then expecting a banker-like bailout.
Feminists carrying mattresses as they throw out false rape accusations.
Leftists getting raped by Muslim invaders...and doing nothing about it.
Priding oneself on going green as we ban plastic bags and Styrofoam.
Claiming we're black or native American when we're not.
Blaming your poverty, student loans, illegitimate children, and STD's on "CIS-gendered white males."

And the list goes on and on.

But while to the untrained eye there doesn't seem to be any logical rhyme or reason to this insanity, there is most certainly is.  And once you figure that out, it not only grants us sanity by explaining precisely what is going on, it also allows us to actually attack the problem, and hopefully, resolve it.

The first clue you should have is that NONE of this is coming from the political right.  Triggly Puff, the student loan crisis, mattress girl, blaming Orlando on Christians, refusing to report your Muslim rapist, and accepting a monthly terrorist attack as "the new normal" are ALL, 100% the hallmarks and patents of the left.  You don't see the engineer-majoring sons from nuclear families who likes Ronald Reagan demand the taxpayers bail them out of their stupid mistakes.  You don't see the daughters from father-present families who want to perhaps get married and raise a stable family get raped and then not accuse her rapist.  And you don't see your recent trade-school graduate who landed a job as welder block traffic on an interstate like his 40 year old leftist counterparts.  This insanity, and that's PRECISELY what it is, is all owned by the left.

Now we can simply write them off as being leftists and, therefore because we disagree with them politically, flippantly dismiss them and say, "well, they're just crazy."  But the truth is there is something much more pathological happening here.  And that is my "Universal Theory of How Laziness Explains Everything in Politics and History."

It is no coincidence the cacophony psychotic behavior of today hails from the left, because...well...quite simply...they're lazy.

They don't want to work.
They don't want to study hard subjects.
They don't want to try at life.

Be it Barack Obama or the spoiled suburbanite Seattle scum panhandling in Pioneer Square, the left is simply lazy and doesn't want to work.

But, unlike a truly indifferent welfare bum, who just wants to collect his government cheese, sleep in and play video games, the majority of leftists cannot abide that fact mentally.  Their pride and ego cannot live with the fact that they are nothing more than parasites.  But since their laziness and sloth prevents the obvious solution (work), how do they solve this problem?

With the insanity and mental acrobatics mentioned above.

If you look at the list above (or for that matter ANY example of craziness coming from the left) the one thing they have in common is deflecting responsibility.

That black woman isn't poor because she never graduated from high school, or had 4 kids from 5 different fathers, or never gets off her fat ass to attend trade school and make something of herself.  Not, it's "racism."

The student with $200,000 in student loans for her doctorate in "Women's Studies" can't find a job NOT because she's a worthless, self-absorbed narcissist who was just too lazy to do math.  No, it's "sexism."

And anybody who isn't doing well in life, either because they don't show up to work on time, majored in a stupid subject, can't save money, can't find a second job, etc. etc., certainly DON'T blame it on their lack of work ethic.  No, blame it on "the corporations maaaaan!"

These pretty lies they tell themselves spare their undeserving egos the truth that would otherwise crush them.  They have no agency or responsibility in their lives.  Their problems are ALWAYS somebody else's fault.  So all is forgive and they can feel good about themselves.  But whereas this mental-trick falsely absolves them of guilt, their egos, pride, and mania can't just settle for a guilt-free parasitic lifestyle.  No, they need more.  They need a purpose.  And not just more, but something that makes them superior WITH the added benefit of not having to work.

Introduce traits.

Traits are an amazing thing.  Everybody has them.  Each trait is unique to oneself.  And you can even identify yourself with traits.  But the one thing about traits leftists have seized upon like a lamprey is that....

you're born with them.

In other words, you don't have to do anything to get them.

And that's PRECISELY why the left champions traits over genuine accomplishment.  Because they don't have to work for them.

For example; "diversity."

The biggest canard I believe I will ever see in my life is the concept of "diversity."  Starting in the 90's they shoved this down our throats claiming that somehow "diversity" had an intrinsic value unto itself.  Common senses says it doesn't.  Reality says it doesn't.  And it's also immoral, racist, and sexist to place value on mere traits one was born with over others without said traits.  Still, this hasn't stopped the education system, government, media, even the private sector from capitalizing off of this lie either to garner votes, or use as a faux marketing campaign.  The democrat party has masterfully enslaved their voting bloc by dividing the country up via traits.  It has also (quite unbelievably) gotten the idiot sheeple masses to blame ALL their problems on white males.  And whereas you'd think/hope the for-profit private sector would resist this, they've instead capitalized on it using it as a means to virtue signal their pro-not-white-male credentials to get lazy sheeple to buy their crap.

Another example: "pansexuality."

I lost count after 38, but if you're confused about the ever-increasing numbers of gender, don't be.  It's just lazy leftist psychopaths who don't want to work, and instead pin their entire life's value on their recently-made up gender identity.  Of course, if you grab a mirror, put it in front of their faces, and point this fact out, they'll throw a temper-tantrum and scream that you're an "ist" of some kind.  But their emotional theatrics aside, doesn't make it any less true, just more cowardly.

And then there's leftist religions.

Like a zealot or religious fanatic, leftist fanatics worship and use their made-up religions to fill the hole of nothingness that is otherwise known as their life.  This is why you NEVER see the captain of the football team with a 3.8GPA join the "anarchist/marxist/minarchist" trench-coat wearing, movie-theater-shooting, nerd crowd.  Or the studious Asian engineering major block the interstate near campus.  They have lives.  They have meaning.  They have purpose.  They have agency.  They have value to the rest of society.

But again, those things require work, effort, rigor, math, and intellectual honesty.

Ergo, why do all that hard stuff when you can just claim a religion?

You're a feminist!
You're going green!
You eat only organic/non-GMO/gluten-free/whateverthefrickthey'llcomeupwithnextweek!
You're fighting racism!
You're helping the poor!
You're a pacifist!
You have a ADDHDHHDH Autism or Aspergers are bi-polar or whatever you want to tell yourself. 

You can claim allegiance to any one of an increasing number of bogus leftist religions and simply wear that trait on your sleeve like a badge of honor.  And the best thing about it, so AWESOME in fact that leftists masturbate to it, is...

you didn't have to expend one calorie of energy on work to get it.  You simply "declared" you had this trait or believed this religion.  And now, not only does your worthless life have faux-worth.  You are a more intelligent, superior person to those troglodytes who don't understand "intersectionality."

Of course, there are consequences for being veritably delusional and living a life of lies.  The black community has made no progress to close the gaps with whites because they value their egos more than the taxing lifestyle it would take to have legitimate children, keep a father in the house, major in the right subjects, and bear responsibility for their actions.  Generations of blacks have now suffered the lowest standards of living in America for living this lie.

Women, notably of the Baby Boomer and increasingly Gen X variety, swallowed whole the "you can have it all" propaganda, throwing away their lives...not to mention shot at having a family or husband...all so they could get that masters degree and become a professional non-profit something or other at the age of 40.  These women also voted to replace men with the state, essentially wedding themselves to government.  This is all well and fine as long as you remain attractive and your eggs remain fertile.  But when that ends, and reality comes crashing down, it's sad how quickly they scramble to validate the feminist lives they've led by simply telling themselves more lies.  40 is the new 20!  Test-tube babies!  MILF's and Cougars!  When, frankly, it just means nobody's visiting you in a nursing home in the end.

But where the delusional lives of leftists run into reality full-force and there is carnage on top of consequences, is when leftists meet diversity in the form of Islamic culture.  The monthly scheduled French attacks, Orlando, refugee workers getting raped, Malmo, Cologne - be it merely a butt being groped or 50 innocents slaughtered, leftist voting and leftist delusion is to blame.

But here you see just how deep their mental illness goes.

If you, I, or anybody else were attacked, we'd seek vengeance, retaliation, and justice. I carry a gun, and like Creasy, I'm intending to get at least 6 before I get taken down.  But what has the response of the left been?

In the case of Orlando, some leftists (though not all), blame guns, blame racism, they even blame Christians.  In the increasing number of cases where some leftist idiot bint is raped they fail to mention who their rapists were.  And some politicians are so wedded to their ideology when the perpetrator is NOT a Muslim they use it as a means to score more political points with Muslims.  And while certainly some of this insanity could be chalked up to the fact they're more afraid of Muslims than they are non, the truth is even more pathetic and sad than that.

They lack such meaning, purpose, and reason in life,
They are such worthless, pointless people,
That when their ideology rapes them, or even kills them,
They will still stand by it because...

that's all they have life.

It appalls me just how powerful the force of laziness is.  Where you see millions of people, entire generations waste their lives, endure hardship, seeth in hatred for white males, even suffer rape and murder because they'd rather do that than own up to their own decisions, take responsibility, and get a job.  But there is a silver lining.  If you ever think it's hard being a conservative or libertarian is this increasingly parasitic world, just imagine what your life would be as a leftist who is so worthless that they'd prefer getting raped than giving up their ideology because you literally have nothing else in your life.

Enjoy that decline!

This is "Progress!"

We had the formula to success.  A small state that served the individual.  But once the left took over education we brainwashed everybody to believe the state was the solution to all our problems, and the next generation will pay for it.  And they deserve it.
