My old friend Dave Hall sent me the link to this video:

Seriously?  The Big Zero wants us to believe that Climate Change is a threat to national security?

Let's look at the concept of climate change.  The terrestrial biosphere is a dynamic environment  within a dynamic universe.  Changes of climate happened naturally and will continue to happen naturally.  There is simply no way around it.  The idea that human action is the single cause of climate change is absolute nonsense.  It is nothing more than an excuse for the enlargement of political power and adversarial political actions against the productive people of this nation.  It is nothing more than an excuse for tyranny.

And as all of us who attended the Benning School for Boys have learned there is no such thing as a valid excuse.

What are your questions on this block of instruction?

Celebrate Life

Ayn Rand had a 79 word statement on why Thanksgiving should be celebrated:

Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday. In spite of its religious form (Giving thanks to God for a good harvest), its essential, secular meaning is a celebration of successful production.  It is a producer’s holiday.  The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the result and reward of production.  Abundance is (or was and ought to be) America’s pride–just as it is the pride of American parents that their children need never know starvation.

But let’s just get to the point and say that we’re celebrating life.

Thought For The Day

Reality as such is not a safe space.  Reality is a place of unlimited wonders but only if you are willing to face them as an adult.

Thanks to Mark Urbin for the quote.

Quote Of The Day

A competent and self-confident person is incapable of jealousy in anything. Jealousy is invariably a symptom of neurotic insecurity.

― Robert A. Heinlein 

This was forwarded to me by an old friend.

I left a comment on Mike Rinder's blog:

"Does the desire to appear upstat apply to groups outside of Official Scientology? For example the constant push by the Islamic State to grab territory and kill infidels?"

"Upstat" in Official Scientology means an improvement in a statistic, such as an increase in membership or money received for services.  Because there is a long running decrease in membership numbers and with it a drop in money taken in by the church the current management has begun an effort to create an illusion of expansion by purchasing and refurbishing larger building in major urban centers.  The apparent purpose of the "Ideal Org" program is to create an illusion of expansion to  the internal membership.  Although the membership is directed to believe the leadership without question a human mind requires actual sense data in order independently verify a specific belief or in this case to maintain the illusion.

Although the doctrine of Islam commands aggression on nonbelievers the Islamic State is under attack from all sides and is losing territory and subjects to exploit.  In order to maintain the illusion of progress, and appear to be "upstat" an effort must be made to attack visible targets outside of control zone of the Islamic State.  Thus the recent attacks in Paris and other locations in Europe.

Those who were raised in the culture of Islam are able to behave decently/  But some of them refuse to get it.  According to the Daily Mail a bunch of Muslims were booing and shouting their standard blasphemy during a moment of silence for the victims of the Paris Attacks before a Greek-Turkish soccer game.

Perhaps it's time to bring up the subject of the Armenian Genocide?

(Insert Curse Here)

Mike Rinder is a former executive of the church of Scientology who literally escaped in 2007.  he has just posted a report on his blog on how the Cos is exploiting the jihad attack in Paris for thier own gain.
