Dear socialist wannabees. THIS is socialism. It’s not the idealistic dream that’s been spoon-fed you by those who either should have known better or are merely using you and your votes to further their evil, elitist means.
Rather, this is the socialism of reality. It’s a situation that’s been often repeated throughout history, any time people have tried to implement it on any scale, whether in a twelve-person commune or a 50-million person country.
It doesn’t work. It never has and it never will, as it’s based on a false precept, one that assumes that all, or at least most humans will do more than their fair share of the work.
In reality, however, no matter where we go, we find the same thing all over the world: 20% of the people do 80% of the work.
That is reality.
And that reality is why socialism has never and will never work in the real world.
The amazing thing is that in those rare environments where everyone does more than their fair share, it negates the very need for a system like socialism, as everyone winds up with an abundance, and out of the generosity of their own hearts, people shared with others in need.
That’s what we had in the U.S. a long time ago. These days, not so much. By forcing everyone to contribute, the government has removed generosity, replacing it with a burden. As a direct result, people no longer work as hard as they once did. They are no longer producing in abundance. When the fruits of their labor are stolen from them by force and threat, they’re forced into a mindset of resistance. They work even less. Society is found in want. Those in power put even more pressure on the people to produce. They resist even more.
Society collapses. You get Venezuela, Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and France, not to mention countless others throughout history.
Idealism sucks, people. It sucks because it does not work. It leads people astray, far from their true path, toppling societies and governments at the same time, creating mass societal collapse, rampant hunger, disease, and death.
Don’t be fooled, people. Work harder than you think you need to work, live well below your means, and save the rest, investing wisely.
Don’t believe every cute cartoon you see on the Internet.
It’s not “what you do and how you treat people. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.” – Corinthians 2:8-9
There is no such thing as salvation by works — by what you do, much less how you treat others.
Now, for the next verse: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” – Corinthians 2:10
What we do, how we treat people is the end result, is the outpouring of God’s sanctification in our lives. Even the kindest, most compassionate and helpful do-gooder in the world has zero access to the Father (and his realm of heaven) if he rejects the Son. There’s absolutely NOTHING we can do to earn our way into heaven: “What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God. All have turned away, they have together become worthless; there is no one who does good, not even one.” – Romans 3:9-12
It’s ALL God’s grace in the face of our undeservedness.
“Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life and will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.” – John 5:24
So, what can you do?
First, avoid as many sources of phthalates as possible. This article lists a number of sources along with recommendations for avoiding the harmful chemical. One of them, of course, is to avoid using plastic bottles for any substance you ingest. That includes water.
Of all the blitheringly idiotic crap I’ve seen on the Internet, the conspiracy theory behind the 9/11 collapse of the World Trade Center twin towers takes the cake, followed closely by so-called, “chemtrails.”
“What really happened” is simple: Two aircraft were intentionally driven into the sides of each tower at a high velocity, severing and severely weakening the exterior steel support structure. The resulting fires, easily exceeding 800 deg C, were some 300 deg C hotter than the 50% weakening point of the remaining steel structure. The failure of those beams caused the entire floor to collapse. The resulting impact vastly exceeded the design strength of the building, so subsequent floors continued collapsed one after another, domino style, until the entire tower had collapsed. The same thing happened to the other tower a short time later.
For those of you who don’t understand that steel doesn’t need to get anywhere near its melting point in order to become very weak, if not “limp as a noodle,” please watch the following video recorded by a blacksmith, an expert in metalworking:
Here’s another outstanding resource. The gentlemen behind this 7-part series of videos clearly understands the underlying physics. Meanwhile, batshit lady and the other conspiracy theorists keep repeating the dogma, the conspiratorial mantra. The video at 6:15 is particularly telling.
Bottom line, people, as the blacksmith correctly noted, “if you hold this up as part of the conspiracy, you are an idiot.” I would argue the same applies to all of the 9/11 conspiracy theories.
Absolutely none of them stand up to even routine scrutiny by experts who actually know what they’re doing (as opposed to the couple thousand idiots who signed up for that website).
Have a nice day. 🙂
1. Physically clean your monitor. Whatever you do, do not blow air into the cooling vents! All this does is shove dust into all the little nooks and crannies which need to be clean in order for the monitor to be kept cool. Instead, use a vacuum cleaner and brush attachment, being sure you’re properly grounded, and thoroughly clean the outside of your monitor.
If you’re handy with a screwdriver, remove the screws holding the back of your monitor, exposing it’s electronic innards. After securing your wrist to a metal part of the frame with a grounding strap, vacuum as much of the circuit boards, nooks, and crannies as you can without further disassembly (which gets pretty complicated). Make sure you vacuum out the inside of the back cover at this time, taking care that you don’t suck up any of the attachment screws. Then, and only then, using a can of air for cleaning electronics, blow out all the nooks and crannies you can reach.
Reinstall the back cover to your monitor.
This is a good time to further clean the exterior surface of your monitor with a barely damp sponge or washcloth. You want to make absolutely certain that no drops of water become trapped near the edge of your screen and the housing. I spray a small amount of Windex onto a clean, dry, terry-cloth towel, and use that to clean all exterior surfaces, beginning with the view screen itself.
