Crap (aka, Don't Turd On Me!)

For all who support the noxious, obnoxious garbage known as Obamacare…for all who support the expansion of the insolent entitlement culture that it will bring…for those who find strength in weakness…for those who wish to denigrate my profession and livelihood with this juggernaut of slime: Should I do as I'm told? Should I go where I'm sold? Should I have to be sacrificed in this or any manner? Should I continue to give till it hurts, till it bleeds, till it sucks me dry, and give it to anyone and everyone who has or will have nothing to do with me…because it is "just", "kind", or "right"? No. I have to, want to, must live a life…free. Your relative morality is not my absolute. Your opinions end where mine begin. But how will the new America begin? Some are good with words. Some are good with swords. I've always preferred a quiet, patient intolerance. A Gandhian resistance. But I had a dream…that I can be more than a silent, screaming machine. I must breathe while I seethe. I must fight the lies, which are only as strong as they are accepted or believed. I must channel a rational energy. I must…I must…I don't know. I'm hearing the old Rajput echoes…the glory of standing strong for the land I believe in. In the end, I will not be an altruistic black hole. I will not drown in a collective sea. And, most of all, I will not be society's ostomy bag. When you're pushed to the brink of stink, and it's starting to sink…it's time to save this ship from the same old shit!

Don't be a fool, don't be a tool

This news article states that "one of the most contentious issues between India and the U.S. is the administration's push for India to accept limits on carbon emissions as part of an international climate change agreement. To emphasize the importance of the matter, Clinton traveled [to India] with the special U.S. envoy for climate change...Clinton urged India to take a leading role and to avoid the missteps that occurred during U.S. industrialization:

'We believe India is innovative and entrepreneurial enough to figure out how to deal with climate change while continuing to lift people out of poverty and develop at a rapid rate,' she said."

'India' (aka, the Indian entrepreneur) should openly ignore the 'American' (aka, the American leftist) push to accept limits on carbon emmisions...that would be innovative enough.

Entrepreneurs work best when left alone, not when they are an instrument of leftist policy.

And anyway, if the Indian entrepreneur is innovative enough to slow climate change without increasing poverty, then surely they're innovative enough to adapt to climate change and eliminate poverty. Leave them alone and we'll see what they can do.

In Denial: A Play in One Act

This is my caption for this photo caption contest where Zardari, Ahmadinejad, and Manmohan Singh are mingling at a recent summit meeting:

Zardari to Ahmadinejad: "What Terrorism?"
Ahmadinejad to Zardari: "What Holocaust?"
Singh: "Morons."

In Denial: A Sequel

In Denial: Encore

Congratulations, Stupor-man

Bill in Kill Bill 2 says "Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent? He’s weak...He’s unsure of himself...He’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race."

Interesting thought, but I dunno...I just thought Superman acted like Clark Kent so that no one would even begin to think he's Superman, that's all. However, there is a pseudo-hero out there who does seem to have this critique on humanity, given the philosophical underpinnings of his apathetic, coma-inducing ideas. Given my recent posts, it's not hard to guess who!

Mystics of Death

Zimbabwean "traditional healers"...shouldn't they get a taste of their own medicine...well, ok, at least some type of legal action?

Sadly, faith healing is big here too, where false cures (redistribution) spread to the populace result in the exploited (the productive).

The Obama (aka Bush 3) administration is supposed to be about "the fierce moral urgency of change". Lets see...big goverment expansion: no points for change there; the deliberate, systematic dismantling of capitalism: well, there goes moral urgency. That's left us all with...fierce!? The upcoming trojan horse attack on the US health care system (a crypto-socialist blueprint for eventual universal health care) is going to be pretty fierce, unfortunately.

LGF is an intriguing blog which exposes Islamofacism and their useful idiots, the LLL (liberal loony left). (I even named this blog after a ridiculous pink protest tank depicted there long ago...couldn't pass it up). Lately LGF has diverted some ammo toward the RRR (rabid religious right), namely creationists, and other far right ilk. Their aim is true. By the way, the economic fascism of the current BO administration is also quite a target rich environment, but I go to other blogs for this.

"Tea-poy" mutiny

I went to a nearby tea party protest a couple weeks ago. Clever signs! It would have been nice to see other Americans of Indian descent there...can't we see that Obama is just another Nehru (young, charismatic, misguided economic nitwit?). Oh well...

(My sign idea: "Separation of Obama and State"...after all, he is just another cultish institution hypnotizing the masses...didn't have time to make it, though).

Time for an exit!...

One of my more recent sound creations, Space Exits, attempts an Indo/Western theme (hey, at least that's what I hand in mind!).

(Due to time considerations, I will have to make this the last entry on this blog; life seems to get busier with each passing day (it's a good kind of busy, though...) Well, it was fun while it lasted!)

The Original Fountain-head?

According to Chris Satullo of The Philadelphia Inquirer,

Shiva [when regarded as the Supreme Spirit mentioned in Hindu treatises] emodies a central paradox of life: To create the new, you must destroy the old. To create fire, you must destroy wood. To make oil, animals must die. For the automobile to prevail, blacksmiths must suffer. For Bill Gates to rise, the typewriter repairman must fall. So free-market capitalism is Shiva...it is what it is, at once creative and destructive...but it is not a zero-sum game either...as free-market capitalism does its Tandava dance, it leaves behind more wealth and more health for more people.

...US politicians fail to see the larger picture and root for protectionist measures...that is where a training in Hindu philosophy helps.

Well, that's a perspective we don't hear every day.

Nature, and stuff

We command what we obey
To create what we destroy
Out of which our life is torn
Is of that which we are born
But I find a solace high
For in between is Time
Preserving all our kind
Viakuntha on my mind

What's holding back privatization? Fear clearly has a lot to do with it. Irrational fears have their negative impact, but among them, the fear of profit is the most underestimated. This fear, which seems to derive from an ignorance of capitalism, is a powerful currency, especially for non-profit groups.

It seems that the fear of profit has paralyzed the privatization of insurance. As Sowell observes, "Insurance companies are in the business of reducing given risks and transferring them, for a price. Non-profit advocacy groups are in the business of maximizing fears from given risks, in order to attract the donations that keep them going. Yet because the latter's income is not called by the dreaded word "profit," they are considered to be doing something more noble." Some of these "advocacy" groups use this fear to "improve" insurance (a product designed to alleviate fear), and end up only destroying the concept of insurance, only leading to more...fear.

Though an irrational fear of the word "profit" exists when it comes to products like insurance, Stephen A. Moses notes where the real concern should lie: "When politicians, bureaucrats, or "advocates" of one kind or another try to achieve welfare goals through private insurance—when they try to "improve" on private insurance with mandates, controls, or regulations—all sorts of unforeseen and unintended consequences follow."

Rational fears may require insurance; irrational fears, however, seem to require facing the simple facts: Some people believe in limited government as a principle. Others see limited government as simply a fact -- that there are only a limited number of things that government can do more effectively than individuals or other organizations can do--Sowell.

(While on this subject, I've noticed that KL has some wonderful insights into fear, and so does Donald Hagen, with question 116 on this funny political quiz)
