You Only See What the Media Shows You!

Vini Oliveira



Of course, the Corporate Media doesn’t point up that either terrorism is a response to aggressive ploys of the great powers or it’s a state-sponsored imposture of the great powers. The Corporate Media “take” is bogus and no decent person should buy into it (Orthodox people… it tells you much about Establishment “journalists” such as S A Schmemann, Terrence Mattingly, S L Kishkovskaya, and Rod Dreher, doesn’t it?). Do note that Anglosphere “conservatives” are by far the most egregious liars on this topic, but Anglosphere “liberals” aren’t far behind them. In fact, Chilly Hilly is far worse than any “conservative” in her warmongering… but then again, both “conservatives” and “liberals” are Classical Liberals of the most obnoxious sort. That’s why I’m a Leftist (I’d call myself a Democratic Socialist with leanings toward Marxism)… neither Liberal ideology is fit for decent people.

3 August 2015. Just Sayin’ Department…

00 He's right ya know 030815


I PM’ed a friend on FB:

Just for GPs… there are some people who are frequent commenters on your posts that I’ll NOT reply to under any circumstance and will withdraw from the conversation if they enter it. I don’t engage with rightwing nutters… I’ve had my fill of ‘em. They’re not in the “Mind of the Church” at all.

That’s my stance. I commend it to you. Rightwing asshats don’t listen, in fact, they try to hog the conversation and claim that all others are outside the Church. Don’t oblige them. Don’t engage rightwing asshats… they won’t listen and it’s a total waste of your time. Oppose them… God wills it…

7 July 2015. A Not-So-Conservative Demot… Take a GOOD Look

00 go home. 050715


Take a GOOD look at this. It’s a rather vicious takedown of “conservatives” and their conceits, isn’t it? Start with the pacifier in the mouth of a kid too old for one… I needn’t say more. This is ELEGANT… it’s a subtle putdown, so, it goes over the head of the average “conservative” (who have a collective IQ lower than that of Abner Yokum). Kudos to the person who thought this up. It’s amazingly good…

Here’s Why Libertarians Are Mostly Men… No Comment Necessary Department

00 Barbara-Marie Drezhlo. Rush Limbaugh. Sic Semper Tyrannis!


Jeet Heer investigates a provocative question today… why are most libertarians men? He offers several plausible explanations, but I think that he misses the real one, perhaps, because it’s unflattering to libertarians. Here’s the quick answer… hard-core libertarianism is a fantasy. It’s a fantasy where the strongest and most self-reliant folks end up at the top of the heap, and a fair number of men share the fantasy that they are these folks. They believe rules and regulations designed to help the weak have held them back, but in a libertarian culture, their talents would be obvious, so, they’d naturally rise to positions of power and influence. Of course, most of them are wrong, as a truly libertarian culture would squash nearly all of them like ants… mostly by the same people who squash them now. However, the fantasy lives on, regardless. Few women share this fantasy. I don’t know why; I don’t want to play amateur sociologist and guess. Perhaps, it’s something as simple as the plain observation that women were in almost-complete subjugation to men in a more-libertarian past. Why would that be an appealing fantasy to a woman? Anyway, this is obviously simplistic and unflattering, and it’s going to offend libertarians. Sorry. However, feel free to take some guesses about why women don’t take to libertarianism as strongly as men do.
