It's not about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.

My response to a sophisticated elitist

My response to a sophisticated elitist that uses IQ scores as scientific fact that their beliefs about racial superiority are supported by (construed and noisy) data

You don't understand confounding factors and multi-variate analysis --Because environmental opportunity is not equally distributed across all groups in our society, social context effects have masqueraded as group differences in research studies.

My view of classroom management

When I “discipline” students, I explain to them the reasoning behind my protocols and procedures. It’s not a power trip. It’s not like “you disobeyed me” and therefore there must be a penalty or punishment. Which is ridiculous, because the instinctive reaction for everyone about a perspective of disobedience is resistance ... and resistance can be either active, passive, or both.

However there comes the time when raising the level of insistence becomes necessary, when you have a recalcitrant adolescent brat who only really responds to a brutal verbal take down with wit or rhetorical whiplash.

For example, “So how many times this week are you going be tardy?” – Or – “I don’t know, where might the instructions for the activity be located? Did you read the paragraph on the top of the page?”

However, you do have to be aware of when the above tactics are necessary, because guilt-tripping is not really effective, so you have to straddle the rhetoric with playfulness. You have to couch the rhetoric as banter or the intent will get misinterpreted, and then all you have done is create resentment. You want students to understand that you respect them, but at the same time calling them out on their irrational dysfunctional behavior is an attempt to help them become better people.

True power comes from knowledge, wisdom, and truth. Everything else is an over compensation. If you feel vulnerable because someone presses your buttons or confronts you with a modicum of truth, that is normal. When you over-react, that is a sign of another personal issue or lingering unacknowledged insecurity, and your classroom management issues just get worse.

Today's Rant

Corporations and Billionaires don't have countries or nations. Their blood circulation system consists of money. Their views are corrupted by arrogance. They buy politicians who can persuade the voting classes that the politicians represent their interests all the while the politicians carve away at the nation state and sell historical legacy for more profits and economic monopolization.

And the mindset is ... Sucks to be you if you are on the other side of their conquered divide.

Billionaires and aggregate collections of very wealthy unenlightened people (not necessarily mutually exclusive) are a problem because there will always be jackals and willing participants to their schemes. They can hire reams of lawyers to muck up the functionalism of local governments everywhere in the world. They can create media organizations run by propaganda artists that toe the line between lies and plausible deniability as skillful as a fisherman quickly de-skins a fish, and then hardly blush when their speculative accusations turn into rotten pumpkins upon the slightest inspection. They love to hire spokespersons that represent their interests and laud only those experts who can twist a tautology into a political philosophy with a straight face. Delusional zombies are pummeled with false patriotism, and borderline personality disorders are channeled by stochastic terrorism into acts or statements that are horrific or illogical.

The Great Plant Based Con

Humans are omnivores. Which means we are carnivores supplemented by other bio-available food sources. However, the quality of the food source is also an issue. Plants are not the best sources of nutrients. FACT: You can't get a lot of nutrients from plants.

Plants were always a supplement to a diet composed of meat for humans. And plants also need to be processed to remove the toxic effects -- like soaking in a saline solution for a few hours to a number of days, or cooking for a long time, or (like bell peppers) removing the skins after broiling after carefully taking out the seeds.

In this video, Mrs. Buxton debunks the 2015 study that vilified saturated fats from the WHO (timestamp 16:00). And even if you ignore all of the sample issues of that study, the studies resulting hazard ratios of 1.08 are insanely small. That implies 8 people out of 100 are more likely to develop bad health outcomes (cancer, etc.). However that ratio is a ratio based upon percentages, not raw numbers.

1.08 means an 8% increase. Say you have 1% of a population that develops a condition. An 8% increase from 1% becomes 1.08%. So we are making conclusions from a study that has sample issues based upon an outcome percentage that went from 1% to 1.08%.

Now I agree, this might be confirmation bias for what I have come to believe, but I have come to this belief after believing the complete opposite, and then experiencing for myself better health outcomes after I flipped my diet and my understanding of human nutrition. My research and awareness and diet over the last 10 years has been convincing for me personally.

The bogus environment issues are discussed at timestamp 34:00 . TLDR; the methane emissions are overstated and exaggerated. People are not talking about livestock in the context of the overall system of ecology, which is more relevant. CAFO's do not have to be the way our livestock is raised and processed. And, the issue of what we feed livestock is more relevant to the environment than the raising of livestock itself. It's not a binary issue.

Quote of the Day

"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."

The fake electors scheme

They met in a basement and signed a false affadavit. Oopsie.

Michigan was one of many fake elector scandals during the 2020 presidential election. Fake electors in the 2020 Presidential election will become a historic moment in the history of the United States and we are currently getting a slow moving boulder down a very steep hill.

Look out below.
