Trump goes to Mexico. Will he come back?

As an Canadian who is afraid to go into the US, what Trump does or does not do is none of my concern. It is just entertainment.

Did the Mexico Government invite Trump south so as to educate themselves or him, detain him or eliminate him?  That question will answer itself in a few days. It is doubtful if the Mexican State can provide security to him. They do not provide security to tourists. Why should Trump be any different. He has pissed of so many, come coyote or cartel may simply make a preemptive strike. He is a presidential candidate, a US citizen, and a asshole. A high value target? What? What would make some poor Mexican famous? Good bye Mr. Trump.

Trump is or thinks he is part of the 0.1% that own most of the world. He has nothing in common with the rest of us peoples. Clinton is also.  Bernie Saunders lost out but he would have made the best president for the majority. Oh well, itewajda. (in the end we all just die anyway.) The US already lost.

Neither us nor ornament, as the old saying. (Moore's Principle)

Oh, the times are a changing...

So now they can charge someone for doing what was allowed at the time? Retroactive law changes?

So some guy goes out with a iron age tool and kills a bear. His mistake was not doing it, but in posting the video, and the very public and far reaching communications about the event. There will always be some people, usually vegans, who object and some of them have a bit of power. Oh well. Idiots always exist, and some will take offense at most any thing.

In South Africa, where the effect of not enough protein is can be seen in the population, they are considering charging parents who enforce a vegan life style on the children, and cause protein deficiency; slow growth, poor muscle development, red hair, eye problems, gut problems, mental development problems (def in O3 fats). Vegan women have a higher frequency of autistic children. Oh well, it is difficult to educate against wrong beliefs. It is the false-truth/gullibility of the religion founding premise that underlies this whole issue. We are taught to believe the authorities, even when they are obviously wrong.

Rational proof must be considered, and at least evaluated. The vegans are just nuts. The Canadian Good Food guide is wrong, and is a leading factor in the obesity epidemic, but why should I care? I know that sugar, wheat, and other carbohydrates that drive weight gain and food fixation, resulting in the epigenetic switch being thrown to to large of appetite. Weight control then becomes a battle. Oh well, it is the public that needs to learn to live with this.

Vegans think they are `saving the planet` when the real problem is overpopulation; Humans need meat, some perhaps more than others, but we all need meat and fats that are just not available from plants. Maintenance of the inactive may be possible with only plants, but when the physical body is screaming for meat, that what should one do?

Medieval Attitudes

Medieval Attitudes of the religious folk as http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2016/08/13/bryan-fischer-i-dont-believe-that-women-should-be-entrusted-with-high-political-office/ show the real reason that religion should be abandoned. Not only are religions based on false premises, they are just irrational. As it was, as it is, as it will be... attitude. No time to step back and take a good look at the problem, just push on, unflinchingly. Persistence without evaluation or consideration of others views.

We see this kind of stupidity in government as well, when it tries to do the political thing. Same blind doing as they have always done. Rather than stating the obvious, asking for a report from a group of experts, and ending the debate, the government spends millions with another Indian  inquiry, which is the political thing to do, the outcome is largely irrelevant. The natives get there way, spend our money, and learn nothing. I am truth seeking, not caring how this all sounds.


More difference between groups of peoples can be found in looking and comparing within the most common areas;
  • cultural / social behavior, 
  • polymorphic (differences in distribution of characteristics), 
  • clinical (differences due to location, distance, time, development, education) and 
  • then finally epigenetic/genetic. 
These are listed in descending order of differences, cultural / social behavior being the largest, so it is the first place one should look. This can be changed widely by education.

We know that there are human predators; these exist and until we can determine who they are and lock them up by the rules established in law, all we can do is study them and there behaviors. We know they harvest those who they can cut from the herd, and isolate. It is doubtful that race is one of there considerations. It is all about opportunity within there hunting territory. The fact that there is a disproportionate native may indicate hunting territory or a cultural/social behavior that makes the native population most susceptible, hence most frequent prey. This may also indicate that the predictors are native or familiar with native ways, or marginalized within there own society. The devil takes the hinder-most.

It is all about personal safety, self preservation, and caution in life. Likewise, self-sufficiency, personal finical responsibility, and developing money generating skills are all required, all of which require education and a frugal attitude. Without frugal attitude you can have a pleasant life but never accumulate anything. Compassion is a fine attitude, but too much compassion for self and others will break the bank also. Needs and wants separation is a necessary skill also. Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.

Militant Atheist - No

Militant Atheist or Atheist Activist?

Atheist or one who recognizes that one of the founding premises of religion is just wrong ... false, unproven, not able to be proven, likely wrong, no evidence of, Monty's parrot comes to mind.  So having made that realization, is there any point in pushing that belief onto other? I doubt it. If they do not see the false founding premise as no foundation, is there any point in continuing to talk? I watch the blogs, so what is there point? Well each one are doing there own thing, in a different direction. Some rail against the god pushers, some against the religious views or the preachers of those views. Some make progress, some less so.

So what is the next logical step? To carry on my life, as best I can. Those who do not accept this reality, well, I am just not going to waste my breath, and I will continue to lead the Good life. (as Stoic). Positive psychology (PP) philosophy, a concept of improving how we feel about our life, is happy to provide exercises to help in this matter, but these may not in fact improve, but only change how you feel about them. A Stoic outlook will actually change our inward looking and humanist undertakings can help the outward world view. So not that here I have separated how we feel about life and changing our actual life even a little bit. Change is of more value than changing how we feel about it.

PP makes a point about winning pretty and winning ugly. Many big companies win ugly, take without giving good value. Governments are the same way. We know this, but have little choice. So how do we make corrections? That is where the Stoic had the inside hand. It is all about management of our expectations, delusions, and beliefs. We can lose ugly or lose pretty, and the stoics remove the ugly from us, leaving us with only the pretty. Smile, for we are the pretty, and only the pretty as long as we follow the virtues. Knowledge and wisdom being the first, temperance, courage, justice, fortitude and compassion rounding out the set. Some of us were raised poorly, even trained to be a slave to the family business(farming), and frugally. Living within our means is habit for some, while not for others. Some of us realized that life has more to offer than work, and yet find it difficult to change that mindset, likely encoded epigenetically. Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.

The point is that what others think does not matter when they are wrong. It just does not matter to me if they will not take the time to understand. Life goes on, and if there is wrong committed in this world it is not by me, well intentionally at least. The reserve clauses apply.

Time

Time goes on, memory not so much. Those of us who are getting older... well we all are, but some of us notice the change more... memory is failing, and changing. What was important is less so. What was right is not so anymore. I meant every word when I wrote it. That is one issue of blogs, we learn along the way. Much of what we know... is just wrong. We learned it and it was wrong then, we taught it, believing it was true, but it turns out now, that it was wrong, we were wrong. Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.

Memory is failing. I can read something one day and agree with it, yet cannot remember what it said about anything. I can learn something well and not be able to recall anything of it a few months later. Is it important enough to look up again? It does not matter or does it? Oh well, in the end we all just die anyway.

We live in a police state: obey or die

https://news.vice.com/article/we-are-scared-of-the-police-community-reels-after-abdirahman-abdis-death

Over regulation is everywhere. One thing that the Boston Prison Experiment showed is we will put up with some over regulation, ego driven demands, but at some point we will revolt.

We, the public, are showing signs of near revolt. The first sight is blatant disregard of the laws. That is where we are today.
