Some Democrats who get it.

My favorite anti-communitarian, Nikki Raapana, linked to a website that I could scarcely believe even existed...DEMOCRATS AGAINST U.N. AGENDA 21.

UN Agenda 21 IS the blue-print for the NWO's subversive take over of the world. Most modern day democrats are useful idiots for the would-be globalist world government apparatchiks at the UN.

Not these.

We are registered Democrats, life-long, who have become aware of the United Nations Agenda 21 negative impacts on our local, regional, and national government.

We are civil rights advocates, pro-choice, and pro-gay marriage, who until recently considered ourselves 'progressive Democrats.' We are university educated, middle income professionals who seek to make common cause with others in the United States who share our concerns.

We are engaged in educating ourselves, our peers, and our country about UN Agenda 21, ICLEI, Sustainable Development, Smart Growth, Form-Based Zoning, Green Energy Mandates, Carbon Offsets, Cap and Trade, Redevelopment and other programs that restrict our land rights and civil rights. This vitally important information transcends party lines and illuminates much of what we have witnessed over the past two decades.

So what the hell are these folks talking about?

Have you seen or heard any kind of advertisements or public announcements in your community lately, calling for a "neighborhood summit?"

Read: Neighborhood Summit: It's not about watering petunias!

On August 21 the city organized 'summit' for neighborhoods will take place (see my 5/26/10 post). I attended the first steering committee meeting so that I could see who was in charge of this. The UN sponsored Neighborhood Alliance, a group of handpicked people who purport to speak for their community; the Leadership Institute of Ecology and the Economy (two of the three cornerstones of UN Agenda 21); and the city's Community Advisory Board, another supposed grassroots group sponsored by the city but appointed by the council. Not coincidentally, the chair of the Community Advisory Board is also the executive director of LIEE, and is also the main organizer for this 'summit.'

I have submitted a request for a table at this event. Let's see if I get it.

Why is the city doing this now? They want to identify and sideline opposition in the community while identifying those who want to be handmaidens of the groups manipulating public opinion.

This is how the UN is gradually seizing control of our communities all across the country, under the guise of "sustainable development."

Does that phrase sound familiar?

Red Pill Reality Dispelling Blue Pill Delusions: Red Meat

Another installment in a series: Red Pill Reality Dispelling Blue Pill Delusions

Everybody knows red meat is bad for you....right?!?!


Are you sure?

Doesn't everyone know that too much red meat in the Standard American Diet is the reason why Americans are at record levels of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer?


Do you feel guilty every time you take exceptional satisfaction in an artery clogging T-bone, or bite into a thick juicy burger or slurp up the fatty liquid from real-bone beef broth stew? Do you ever make concessions with yourself, in which you make a mental note to exercise a little harder later on to "make up" for your red meat indulgence?

Set your mind at ease...the idea that red meat is bad for you is nothing more than a big, fat lie.

Red meat is actually good for you.

Yes, not only is it not bad for you...it's downright good for you.

If that idea sounds crazy, you need to understand the source for this mistaken belief that red meat is the boogeyman causing so many health problems in the American diet....and. as I've pointed out before, the genesis of this mistaken belief starts with the favorite tool of diet propagandists: observational studies.

You know..the one where they hand out questionnaires to a bunch of senior citizens asking them what they ate in the last 12 months...and then they check back in 10 years and see which senior citizens kicked the bucket, and than blame their rate of red meat consumption as the cause of mortality.

Dr. Michael Eades, author of Protein Power, drives home the point that refutes all of the media reports about the health hazards of red meat:  

Correlation does not equal causation!

The news is abuzz with reports of the latest study to come out showing that eating meat, especially red meat, kills us off before our time.  (You can read some of the reporting here, here, here and here.)  Google shows 547 new articles about this study.

Although this study is totally worthless from a causality perspective because it is an observational study, it does serve to confirm the biases of those non-critical thinkers who have already bought into the idea that meat is bad. 
And the majority of the journalists, editors and publishers of today's corporate mass media, most certainly buy into this notion that meat is bad. And the entire media is saturated with articles with such catchword phrases like "the latest studies reveal: red meat shortens your life span!"

But if you look at the actual science on the topic, the evidence paints quite a different picture. Read Dr. Eades entire post on how the studies being touted by the media don't actually indicate what the media says it does.

The point of this post is that you shouldn’t get wound up about a study that gets reported throughout the media because there are more than likely other studies that are just as well done and just as important showing exactly the opposite findings that the press chooses to ignore.  You’re not seeing the science as it is, you’re seeing the science as the press wants you to see it, which, typically, is the way that confirms the bias of members of the press.
So this demonstrates how red meat has been unfairly demonized....but where does this idea that red meat is actually GOOD for you, come from? Here's one good source:

It's the Beef!

What a shame we have demonized red meat because this is one modern food, enjoyed by almost everybody, that is rich in nutrients. Red meat provides complete protein, including sulphur-containing proteins like cysteine. Beef is a wonderful source of taurine and carnitine, needed for healthy eyes and a healthy heart. Beef also provides another key nutrient for the cardiovascular system—coenzyme Q10.
Beef is an excellent source of minerals like magnesium and zinc—you need zinc for clear thinking and a healthy sex life. The fuzzy-headedness that vegetarians mistake for heightened consciousness is really the fog of zinc deficiency. Vitamin B6 is abundant in meat, especially rare meat. Red meat is one of the best sources of vitamin B12, which is vital to a healthy nervous system and healthy blood. Vegetarians are especially prone to vitamin B12 deficiency. One of the first signs of vitamin B12 deficiency is a tendency to irrational anger-—so much for vegetarian claims that we will have a more peaceful, harmonious world if we all just stop eating meat.

Despite all those nutrients...what about the fat?

Beef producers need to recognize that the fat is the most important part of the beef, rich in components that promote good health and that help you utilize the nutrients in all the other parts of the beef. In addition to vitamins A and D, fat contributes many important fatty acids, including palmitoleic acid, an antimicrobial fat that protects us against pathogens in the gut. If you want to be sure that you don't get foodborne illness from your hamburger, use full fat ground beef.

Fat also provides a substance called conjugated linoleic acid or CLA, at least it does if the animals have been on green grass.31 CLA is a substance that protects us against cancer and that promotes weight loss—that's right, fat can make you thin, if it's the right kind of fat.

And the right kind of fat is also saturated fat which, in spite of what we've been told, plays many important roles in the body chemistry. The scientific literature delineates a number of vital roles for dietary saturated fats—they enhance the immune system,32 are necessary for healthy bones,33 provide energy and structural integrity to the cells,34 protect the liver35 and enhance the body's use of essential fatty acids.36 Stearic acid and palmitic acid, found in beef tallow and butter, are the preferred foods for the heart.37 As saturated fats are stable, they do not become rancid easily, do not call upon the body's reserves of antioxidants, do not initiate cancer, do not irritate the artery walls.

In fact saturated beef fat is one of the most useful fats in the culinary repertoire. As it is very stable and doesn't go rancid when heated to high temperatures, it's perfect for frying. While we don't recommend a lot of fried foods, we know that our children and grandchildren are going to eat them. Fast food outlets used to fry their potatoes in healthy stable beef tallow. They were crisp, tasted delicious and provided many important nutrients. But the phony cholesterol issue has forced these outlets to switch to partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, which is known to cause a host of chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease, bone problems, infertility and autoimmune disease.38
So...if you can find yourself a good source of grass-fed beef...or buffalo, or kangaroo...or any other ruminant animal eating it's natural diet of grass...eat up to your hearts content. Literally.

And even if grass fed meat is too expensive or too hard to find in your area...even grain fed beef is nowhere near as bad for your health as the corporate-owned, mainstream media would have you think.

I personally think the demonization of red meat is a diversionary tactic promoted by BIG AGRICULTURE.

By getting people to focus on the red meat, they will ignore all of the products of Big Ag that are actual health detriments.

It's not the red meat that's making you sick...it's all of the Big Ag byproducts that are mass produced and sold at a high profit margin because of it's extensive shelf life that is included with your serving of red meat that's ruining your health! Things like the white flour with high fructose corn syrup and soybean oil to bake the bun, the MSG additives, the High Fructose Corn Syrup soda and the potatoes fried in rancid, hydrogenated vegetable oil that's making you fat and your arteries clogged.

Here's to the Passing of the Seasons

Damn you, Talleyrand and Alkibiades.

Thanks for killing off one of my favorite daily reads...

Linkage Is Good Fun, Yeah?! (NSFW...of course!)

Tomorrow is Statehood Day in Hawaii. It is the day in which we are too commemorate the colonization of ke 'aupuni by our Imperial Overlords of Pax Americana.

This means I will not be online for the next three days, as I purposely don't have internet at home, and I'm going to take full advantage of my 3 day weekend in the great outdoors of Hawaii Nei.

It's good to unplug from the interwebs on a regular basis.

The interactive portion of the internet can be as addictive and habit forming as any recreational contraband substance. There are times where I sit enthralled to the glowing flat screen, ignoring the needs of various bodily functions while reading, commenting, and blogging.

I've sat in the same room as my wife on two separate computers, with nary a word for several hours while we are both absorbed in whatever web surfing or emailing we were involved in. That is one of the reasons why I shut off our ISP almost 3 years ago. Our home life is much better because of it...even if it does get inconvenient on occasion.

But I digress.

I've enjoyed a lot of link love in the past year, from various bloggers...so since this is beginning of my weekend, I decided to return the favor for once. But rather than go with linking to everyone's most recent posts, I'm going to link to people's posts that I've read in the recent past, and select the ones that I think are particularly insightful, helpful and/or profound...IMHO, of course.

Oh, and I'm putting the NSFW totties at the end...since I will be linking to both male and female bloggers, I'll give two seperate, gender specific totties for your enjoyment.

First up, Ferdinand Bardamu's take on the "Ground Zero Mosque":

"While American Muslims are much more amenable to the local culture then European Muslims, they still insist on being an alien people within a nation that is not their own. The chances of them turning the U.S. into Baghdad West is slim, despite the Chicken Little crying of the neocons. Either they will cease to be Muslims and integrate themselves into the American tapestry or the natives will expel them with force, possibly violently. Humanity’s tribal impulses ensure that there is no possibility of a peaceful Lennonite paradise where we all get over our differences, join hands and sing kumbaya as the sun sets."

Next, we have a good anecdote from Ulysses at Hidden Leaves, about how women will often "support" their friend's which will help the friend feel better...but doesn't really help her to see how her own words, actions and behavior have played a role in her personal drama-trauma.

Rural gal told enlightened gal that she had been married three times. Each time, her husband had been drunk, abusive, and unfaithful. Rural gal said, “I’m the only common factor in all three of these marriages. It must be me.”

I’ll give you three guesses as to what enlightened girl said to rural girl. The first two guesses don’t count.

“You cannot control the actions of others.”

...No, one cannot control the action of others, but one can control one’s own actions. But, by framing the issue thusly, enlightened gal possibly sabotaged rural gal’s attempts at reaching enlightenment of her own.

Next up, Talleyrand over at STD, on Puppy Love:

Our culture is set to destroy the bonds that cement us to each other and it creates a pattern where love ends and what is reborn is not like a phoenix, but a specter of the older, purer love of our youth.

Talley has been on fire as of late, so I think I'll give him a twofer here. Here's an excerpt from his piece on the difference between expectations and goals:

I often see people complaining that they have to “keep gaming” a woman as if this is a fundamental problem with game. No this is a fundamental problem in the person’s thinking. Relationships are not static. If you get the girl, you don’t simply have her like a trophy. Many men act that way, they get married and its simply “Well, that’s taken care of on to the next thing. They expect things to remain the same. They expect to stay married and they expect fidelity. And they are deeply unhappy when they find their expectations are not fulfilled.

Our society feeds expectations and feeds the unhappiness of people.

Of course, Talley's STD partner, Alkibiades, has got some excellent contributions of his own...here he is noting The Death of Las Vegas.

Vegas was and is now a destination for the girls to head to leaving their husbands and children behind. Quite the change from the time when men left their wives behind when they visited Vegas.

As a former resident and frequent visitor of Sin City since 1992, I have to concur with his observations. I was there when the changes began to pick up steam.

Next up is a BIG PICTURE post over at Chateau Roissy:

This is an excellent Public Service Announcement. Husbands, you’d be wise to monitor your wives’ social circles and act to limit her time spent with cat collecting, unmarried harridans. They will whisper poison thoughts into your wives’ brains.

When you monitor your wives social circles, and you detect what seems to be one such harridan, beat her to the punch and poison the well.

Next up, we have a long time member of the Chateau commentariat, Dana, whose decided to recently start up her own blog. She frequently mentions that she doesn't have too many female friends in real life, because she won't lie to them to make them feel good about there mistakes. Than she shows us exactly how this is done with a blog post about another long-time Chateau lady denizen, lovelysexybeauty, entitled Are You Being Abused, or Are You Vying With a Man for Dominance?:

Lovely Sexy Beauty has recently posted a list of behaviors her man is displaying in their relationship, and that apparently OTHER men in the past have displayed towards her...

...Of course she is being told these behaviors are “red flags” of abuse in the comments and being unequivocally supported in the comments and as ALWAYS is not ONCE asked what behaviors SHE might be engaging in to cause these behaviors to come to the fore in MORE than one man.

While I don't know if Dana is right in LSB's case, she does make a point most people should always remember:

There is only one person whose behavior you can control, there is only one person that you can change...and there is only one person who is responsible for your happiness: yourself.

At best, I think LSB should take Dana's point and engage in some serious personal reflection and see if it is accurate or not. The best criticism you will often get is from someone else who does not care about your feelings enough to tell you the ugly truth you don't want to hear.

Another long time MRA Blogosphere commenter, Deansdale, also decided to wield the keyboard and join the fight...here is discussing "Conspiracy Theory" and how it pertains to feminism:

Feminism was a marxist movement from the very beginning and it still is now, so their goal is the marxist idea of building utopia on the ruins of society – but they’ve rarely admitted it openly. If the suffragettes would have said that their goal was something like Gramsci’s cultural marxism, Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World combined together they would have been shot on sight. It’s a common argument against conspiracy theories that usually they take too much time to implement and to bear fruit, but the example of feminists is a perfect answer to this argument: yes, they did work slowly and gradually for ~150 years and now we are in this fucked up situation.

...Observe a quote from an article about Aaron Russo:

“Rockefeller also told Russo that the elite families created and financed the women’s lib movement so they could tax another half of the population and so that the children would be trained by them in government schools rather than in the context of the family unit.”

Pay no attention to the Reptilian lolzlzolzlizard Illuminati...nothing to see here!

Next up...a Maxim from the Man Who is Thursday:
Women like being led and hate being controlled.
That one reminded me of another Talleyrand Gem (OK, now Talley get's a three-fer. Can't help it, this post really struck a chord and stayed fresh in my mind!): Dominance is not the Same as Controlling

 When people talk about dominance and social dominance, inevitably women will think “controlling.”

Generally, women do not like controlling.  They will often think of an ex that was controlling and shiver with revulsion.

Being controlling is not a sign of dominance, it is a sign of weakness.  It is a sign of insecurity.

Next up... **** ***** over at Life in the Age of Byrony, on Perspective:

It's called life motherfuckers.

This shit isn't supposed to be easy. Living here, in the west, we have a skewed notion of what is poverty. We let TV and the Hills and MTV and media tell us we're losers if we have to sleep on the couch at our parents or at a friends place. You're a bum if you don't have a car or a bad person if you've been arrested. Hint: it's virtually impossible to go a week without breaking some law in America, whether it's speeding or getting high or the million other ridiculous laws we have.

Above all, media tells us you're poor and you should feel bad about yourself if you're still struggling to climb up the socioeconomic ladder.

Not all of us were born to parents with money. We have to fend for ourselves. Suck it the fuck up. Go to work. Do what you enjoy as much as possible. Rid yourself of a need for shit and stuff to put in a house that locks you into a 30 year fucking mortgage or a new car that depreciates the moment you buy it and does so each passing day.

If you cast all these things aside, and you sit, and objectively decide you want the creature comforts and ease these things provide in daily supplements, by all means, go for it.

Just don't buy into what they're selling....just because....just because you never considered alternatives or because it's simply what everyone else does.
How many happy people do you know? I mean genuinely happy? I mean fucking love their life.

Do what everyone else does and have what everyone else has (hint: it's rarely happiness).

Getting in debt to attain material consumption is modern slavery. Don't be a slave.

The Elusive Wapiti drove this particular point home rather well, in his post Set Free At Last:

Well, today, I wanted to announce my family's freedom from the yoke of debt. For most of my adult life I--I say "I" here a lot because most of the last decade I have been single/divorced, and it is during this time where I accrued most of my debt--have owed money to somebody or something. For the first time in 11 years, I don't have a car payment or house payment or owed several tens of thousands in attorney's fees. During this period, I have paid out just shy of $11,000 in interest to usurious banksters, money that could have been better used to save for a future home, invest in the future, or spend on my/our current wants.

My family and I are off the hamster wheel at last. We intend to remain so, and would like to encourage each of you to also know the peace of not being a slave to your possessions and having the spiritual and mental security that comes from knowing that economic dislocation isn't an immediate emergency and that, whatever comes our way via the Great Depression II, we will survive.
Excellent EW. I'm almost there myself.

Almost. I can't wait til the day I can say my family and I are free as well.

Here's Vincent Ignatius, on workplace equality for the womynz:

Girls cry over trivial shit that merely annoys men, and their tears are always meant to manipulate.  Think of them as crocodile tears.  If equitable workplace behavior brings a girl to tears, then she shouldn’t be working there anyway.

Here's an older post from grerp about feminist's claims that women like her are not willing to listen to their wisdom...Sorry, I Gave at the Office:

I was forced to listen ad nauseum, and I am done with the listening.

I went to a very liberal Big Ten university during the height of the PC movement.  Attached to my orientation was a mandatory two-hour reprogramming session on homosexuality. ...

...The female professor I had for my Politics of Eastern Europe clearly stated during the first session that her male students would have to work harder to get a good grade in her class because she didn't like men. ...

...I also took a Women in American History 1873 - 1920 class that I naively believed would be about the pioneer experience, etc.  I was actually excited about it.  Ah, me.  Instead, our feminist professor took our learning in a different direction....

By the time I got through undergrad, I had not only listened, but I'd learned to think like a good liberal feminist because I had so many professors who would downgrade if you strayed from the path of correct thinking...

...My college newspaper was a love note to the liberal point of view.  I read it daily....

...There were pro-choice protests on campus all the time.  I heard all about the importance of comprehensive sex ed and free birth control.  Clinton visited in the fall of 1992.  Hillary gave my commencement address, her stirring words being 95% about her health care plan and 5% about our commencement.

So, yeah.  I've heard it.  I've memorized it.  I regurgitated it at a professor's command. I just don't buy it.

But you can't say I didn't listen.

Next up, an oldie from the vacationing Athol Kay, called Nice Guys Finish Last:

Nice guys finish last. You’ve heard it like a mantra and it’s a cliché because it’s true. Women constantly pass over nice men for jerks, who more often than not mistreat them, and then if the cliché holds true to form, the woman runs back to the nice guy and cries on his shoulder. Tells him he’s a wonderful friend. Meanwhile the poor nice guy is hit with a triple whammy of anger, hard on, and nausea.

If that description sounds a little too close for comfort, you'd be well served to get over there and read Athol's archives.

This next piece is about field-tested routines by Krauser. These are great lines...Krauser calls them Chick Crack. Field tested and approved by yours truly, too. These lines will work in an LTR just as well as a pickup attempt of a strange woman.  Since reading it, I've managed to use two of these three lines on my wife so far. Yep Krauser...chick crack.

Let's Play a Game of You Be Quiet
Description: A short routine to establish dominance over the girl, pushing her into the child role of waiting for the adult to finish speaking. You are essentially telling her to be quiet and let the important person finish, but in a playfully rogueish manner.

We're Finished Here
Description: A way of maintaining a dominant leading frame on a girl, leading her and kinoing. It shows you do what you want to do and she is tagging along for the ride.

I've Got A Better Idea
Description: This is a way of re-framing her suggestion to make it sound like your idea, but doing it in such an obvious way that it’s making fun of the act. Can be used any time in set, but is best to use either for something completely pointless or when dealing with her shit test / frame control attempt of suggesting what to do next

Finally, Dalrock put together a hilarious short video clip serving fair warning to women contemplating going to the theater to see the latest Julia Robert's chick-flick, Eat, Pray, Love.


Now....here's the totties (Click to enlarge):

Ladies First -

And now for the men: putting the NSFW into LIGFY:

100% Effective

Anonymous commenter on my last post wrote the following:

Game has a place in marriages and perhaps its most salient contribution is the realization that one must constantly romance their wife.

But like all things, game is not 100 percent effective and many comments on game blogs veer into victim blaming.

I disagree...game is 100% effective - if you understand that the goals of understanding and applying it are not dependent on achieving arbitrary and artificially measured achievements like notch counts or same day lays...or trying to "constantly romance your wife."

Now...before I go into this, it is important to note that I am certainly taking this quote out of context.

In the context of the rest of "his" post (I suspect it's a he based on the words he used), I agree with most of what anonymous wrote:

It's one thing to talk about acting alpha and "controlling the frame" and its another to expect men in long-term marriages, esp. those involving children NOT to be devastated by divorce, and to immediately be able to play the role of care-free and happy bachelor. Men do bond you know.

So of course there's many things men can do to improve their marriages, make divorce less likely, and if divorced get back up and on his feet as much as possible -provided of course he doesn't end up in jail for the crime of being impoverished by the divorce or allegedly hurting his kids.

But women are people too, and are not just bundles of instincts. How many women are behaving in marriages and long term relationships these days is disgraceful by any metric and I don't fool myself that game by itself is more than an individual pallative.

I don't disagree with most of this...but the last sentence is key.

I don't fool myself that game by itself is more than an individual pallative.

Game, in it's very essence, is the penultimate individual palliative.

That was the entire point I was trying to get at in my Game is the Red Pill post.

It is not the means to an end...but rather the end unto itself.

It's about opening your eyes to discerning the truth and recognizing all of the distortions, misdirections and behavioral programming inculcated by our mass media culture. Programming that is broadcast to deliberately emasculate men and butch-up women.

It is a paradigm shift in the way you view yourself, your personality, and understanding the underlying biological motivations for the way in which people behave.

its another to expect men in long-term marriages, esp. those involving children NOT to be devastated by divorce, and to immediately be able to play the role of care-free and happy bachelor.

Of course Anonymous, of course! The point of understanding the underlying principles of Game though, is not to "immediately be able to play the role of care-free and happy bachelor," but to understand your own behavior and how it affects and effects your relationships with other people. It offers the insights to effectively reflect on your situation and where it is you that you may have went wrong...and how to avoid falling into the same mistakes again in the future.

IMHO, Game is about BECOMING.

Becoming a man who is self-defined, confident, assertive, direct and most of all honest.

Becoming a man who doesn't look for female approval for personal validation...but rather becomes the sort of person for which females work to seek YOUR approval.

THIS IS YOUR FRAME. You control it by not allowing interactions with others to make you lose your frame.

If you take the effort to study and understand this theory we call "Game," you will gain an overall framework for understanding most aspects of social human behavior.

That is why I say it is 100% effective, because at it's very essence, game is about recognizing the truth.

The truth that women are not attracted to the same things men are.

The truth that women are not attracted to supplicant, eager-to-please nice guys.

The truth that not only is "equality" impossible to achieve in a male-female relationship, but a recipe for surefire failure.

The truth that in our culture, women are mislead to believe that infatuation and lust are the same thing as "LOVE."

The same holds true for women. Endless are the anecdotes of deluded women who believe that their college degrees, careers, and high salaries are all attributes that are supposed to be attractive to men.

Understanding Game is 100% effective in helping people see these truths.

Two other points here:

one must constantly romance their wife

This is not true at all.

In fact, "constant" romance would be the absolute wrong thing one should do in trying to apply game to their relationship.

Well-timed and well-executed "romance" at unpredictable and spontaneous intervals is enough...the only constant one needs to apply in a LTR is to constantly avoid running afoul of her hypergamous instincts.

...many comments on game blogs veer into victim blaming.

I can't speak for everyone...but sometimes playing the "blame game" is just copping out, or failing to recognize how one's own behavior may have played a role in the demise of his relationship.

Now if a husband "beta-izes" and his wife divorces him out of boredom and does all of the things she can to harness the power of the State to get every advantage out of the divorce, and destroy the relationship between a father and their kids, she most certainly is being a selfish, entitled, greedy bitch. That still doesn't mean the man shouldn't seek to understand how his own behavior, attitude and demeanor may have contributed to her actions that lead to the dissolution.

It's not about assigning fault, or assuaging oneself of guilt that they did no wrong.

It's about improving yourself...and self-improvement is impossible without facing the truth.

Learn Game so that you can be true to yourself.

That is how game is 100% effective.

ADDENDUM - Just came across a nice, succinct comment by Krauser over at Deansdale's, that encapsulates precisely what I'm trying to say:

When game is a shell of tricks wrapped around a total loser, it fails miserably. Unfortunately most PUAs I’ve met spend years in this mode. Eventually they tumble to the core truth that game is about personal transformation – about becoming the best possible you. That’s alot of hard work, painful introspection, and most guys won’t do it.

High value girls do not consort with low value men, even if the latter has “tight game”.

Are You Ready Boots?

Roissy's latest post, These Boots Were Made For Divorcing is another man-o-sphere blog's tour de force...putting the pieces of the puzzle together to reveal the picture of the final decline of Western Civilization as the unleashed chaos of female sexual empowerment destroys the once-great superpower built by a Patriarchal  society.

Goodbye America, indeed.

Several bloggers have already made their own posts riffing off of Roissy's, including Vox Day, in which he focused on the 2 choices Roissy offered at the end - either rescind feminism or follow it to it's logical conclusion.

I, on the other hand, found another section I'd like to riff on...

You want to save marriage? Learn game. What are the odds that these “great catches” the wives are unceremoniously divorcing are betas to the bone? The answer is in the last sentence.

“while the men are still too broken-hearted to date again.”

Readers, these wives did not marry “great catches”. They married pushover herblings with steady jobs. Any man with a lick of game and an alpha attitude would not be broken-hearted for long after a divorce, even a surprise divorce that caught him off-guard. He would be lining up dates while the ink on the papers was still drying.

There is one key aspect about learning Game by a man who is married or in a LTR...by learning what behaviors, attitude and demeanor are attractive to your wife or girlfriend, you are also learning what's attractive to all women period.

When you internalize this, you will begin to notice how women in general are attracted to you and enjoy your company.

Don't most men prefer to be surrounded by female beauty, given a choice? Even if you have no sexaul intentions...and you are in situations in which you must interact with women on a strictly platonic level...wouldn't you certainly prefer to socialize or work with attractive, easy-on-the-eyes, women rather than obese, butchy, short-haired, land whales?

Well, the same is true with women...but, as men's attraction is cued towards the visual, women's is cued for social dominance. Learn your game...and practice it on every women in your life. No, I don't mean seduce your wife's sister, your best friend's girlfriend or your mother-in-law...but certainly neg her and DHV and play up your cocky-funny banter whenever you're around your female friends, family and acquantances. It's one way of indirectly gaming your own woman.Of course, especially if you're dealing with friend's and families women, like your buddies wife, you certainly need to remain respectable about it...but that doesn't mean the principles of game don't apply when interacting with them.

Your wife or your girlfriend's friends will start to tell her that she's lucky to have you. They will flirt enthusiastically with you. And your wife or girlfriend cannot help but notice this - even if not consciously, subconsciously she certainly will.

Note the excellent commentary by TLM regarding his observations of a sad-sack older women who divorces her doctor husband because he was boring.

Once the papers were served and the beta hubby got over his grief, he now appears to be on the road to making some changes that are destroying the wife’s vision of her single-life good times fantasy. I’m not sure who’s guiding him through this, but he’s taking their sage advice.

Before he moves out the wife finds a new prescription for Viagra. Additionally, he also starts getting phone calls from some nurse.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING makes a woman value her mate more than knowing he's attractive to other women.

Well this infuriates the wife and puts the hamster into overdrive. A few days after he moves out, all the utilities are shut off along with cell phones etc. She’s now panicking and reality is starting to set in. Of course she breaks down in tears at the terrible things happening in her life, incapable of accepting responsibility for her incredibly stupid actions. There was no reason to divorce him other than she was Bored!

Well she certainly got what she was looking for...she definitely can't say she's bored now! I do bet though that if he had not reacted that way, but instead went into breakdown mode, and begged and pleaded with her to reconsider her actions, she would have ruthlessly proceeded to crush him in divorce court without a second thought of remorse.

But that's besides the point. According to TLM, this lady was fantasizing for years about divorcing her boring Doctor husband.

I'd venture to guess her husband probably didn't have any sort of "game." He was most likely devoted, faithful, predictable, and routine. If and when they were around other women, he probably treated them as purely platonic, logical, straightforward interactions. He did not "broadcast" his attractiveness to other women...let alone his own wife. Hence the descent into boring territory.

As I wrote previously:,

Understanding what women find attractive has so many more applications than simply trying to seduce hotties into bed. See what happens when you "run game" on a waitress, or a bartender, or some other woman you interact with for which you have no romantic or sexual interest in. I'm talking about playful negging (cocky and funny), DHV's, comfort and rapport building, acting confidently and assertively, etc. while dealing with ANY women...including relatives.

Even women who are not interested in you in a sexual way will still eat it up, and you'll find that this "tool" of Game will serve as a social lubricant that can get you a freebie dessert from an amused waitress, or perhaps some banter with a receptionist might find her able to "slide you in" an overbooked schedule...or a female bartender might give you a drink "on the house." Furthermore, if you do this in front of a women you actually do want to seduce, you will also increase her own attraction for you as well, as it will validate to her that you are authentic, and not just putting up a front to get into her panties. As I've said before, understanding the concept of game is life changing, not just sex-life changing.

You see, just as a woman with a pretty face, a great rack and a plump ass finds such favors are regularly given her simply by men who find her physical appearance easy on the eyes...

...so too do women react to men who use the tools of "game" in a no-sexual-intentions sort of way.

Game is not just a tool...a trick...a routine used to get laid.

It's a way of life.

Red Pill Reality Dispelling Blue Pill Delusions: Salt

An installment in the series: Red Pill Reality Dispelling Blue Pill Delusions

Just as saturated fats and animal-base protein food has largely been demonized by the Government and the Medical and Pharmaceutical Industry, so too has salt been given a bad rap.

Red Pill reality: Salt is not only not bad for you...it's downright good for you and necessary for you to maintain good health.

Lets look at a recent "report" from the likes of the American Heart Association:

The U.S. food supply contains excessive amounts of sodium (salt), which makes limiting sodium (salt) consumption to less than 1,500 mg difficult. According to the CDC report, Americans over the age of 2 consumed a daily average of 3,436 mg between 2005-2006, up from a daily average of 3,329 mg from 2001-2002.

In recognition of this fact, the American Heart Association is currently working with federal agencies to identify strategies to reduce the amount of sodium in the food supply and is encouraging food manufacturers and restaurants to reduce the sodium (salt) added to food by 50 percent over the next ten years.

Salt in the food supply? Notice how the press release says: sodium (salt).

What the American processed food manufacturers use is a highly processed, de-vitalized, nutritionally stripped and bleached, than laced with anti-caking chemicals "salt" that is added to the industrial-processed food supply.

That's not salt. That's sodium chloride. Real salt has approximately 84 trace minerals in it.Table salt is stripped of 82 of those trace minerals through high heat, pressure, and bleaching, so that only sodium chloride remains. After that, they may or may not add iodine (iodized salt).

Dr Barbara Hendel, researcher and co-author of Water & Salt, The Essence of Life, points out what should otherwise be obvious:

"These mineral salts are identical to the elements of which our bodies have been built and were originally found in the primal ocean from where life originated. We have salty tears and salty perspiration. The chemical and mineral composition of our blood and body fluids are similar to sea water. From the beginning of life, as unborn babies, we are encased in a sack of salty fluid.
Salt, is vital to life.

Highly processed sodium chloride, not so much.

From an article that references Dr. Hendel,  Well Seasonsed: How Salt Can Actually Be Good For You:

Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems. It's a view that is echoed by other academics such as David McCarron, of Oregon Health Sciences University in the US.

He says salt has always been part of the human diet, but what has changed is the mineral content of our food. Instead of eating food high in minerals, such as nuts, fruit and vegetables, people are filling themselves up with "mineral empty" processed food and fizzy drinks.
Due to modern farming methods, fruit and vegetables are much lower in minerals than they once were. Meanwhile, table salt is stripped of all minerals save for sodium and chloride. These changes, he believes, are responsible for the current prevalence of high blood pressure.

Nutritionist Patrick Holford goes one step further. He claims that high-sodium table salt has more to account for than just high blood pressure and heart disease and can actually create mineral imbalances that lead to health problems. "Minerals work together and need to be balanced," he explains. "For example, potassium and magnesium works with sodium to regulate water balance and nerve and muscle impulses. The more sodium you eat, the more potassium and magnesium you need. Few of us eat enough of these, yet we eat high amounts of sodium in {processed} salt. This leads to potassium and magnesium deficiency, where muscles become tight, nerves become over stimulated and you feel more anxious."

As magnesium is involved in maintaining bone density and hormone balance, low levels may compromise bone strength and lead to premenstrual problems. That's where swapping table salt for mineral-rich salt can make a difference.
"A lot of people say salt is bad, but bad salt is bad," says Amanda Nelson, founder of The Natural Salt Seller. "If you put a fish in table salt solution, it will die. Good salt, on the other hand, can be wondrous."

I spent years buying low-sodium or sodium free foods. Than I discovered the Weston Price Foundation website and changed my diet. One of the things I discovered from their site was the following:
We have been told for years to avoid salt, but following this advice can lead to even more problems. We are all salty on the inside--our blood, sweat, tears, and even our urine--it's all salty. It's important to replenish the salt in our body, using the right salt is what makes all the difference in the world. The best way to put salt back into your body is to use Celtic sea salt. This high quality salt contains over 80 balanced minerals from the sea. Celtic sea salt is essential for maintaining proper fluid balance and utilization in the body. It also normalizes blood pressure, enhances digestion, and nourishes the adrenal glands.
Celtic Sea Salt is very expensive, especially in comparison to table salt....but in Hawaii we have plenty of Hawaiian sea salt for sale in most stores.

I bought a salt grinder and big bags of Hawaiian sea salt, and now salt all my cooking with gusto. Eating only real sea salt actually made me aware of the difference between real salt versus sodium chloride. I had some regular table salt sprinkled on some bland vegetables while eating dinner at a friends house last week. Like most people, they were horrified at the idea of putting butter on their steamed veggies...ugh. No butter, only margarine. I said no thanks and grabbed there salt shaker.  I could immediately taste the difference, and regretted using it.

Try it some time for yourself. You'll see.

The Profitable Pandemic

Pandemics can and do occur. Smallpox, measles, typhus, tuberculosis...all pandemics that have occurred throughout history. Millions of people have died or suffered ill-health effects for the remainders of their lives having been affected by a pandemic. The idea of pandemic is certainly frightening to contemplate, especially when you realize that in our new "global" age of high speed air travel, the possibility of a disease spreading across a wide area of the modern world before it is detected is not a far-fetched idea.

But like the specters of war and terrorism are used to scare the masses into accepting the gradual implementation of an ever-expanding police state and a means to justify milking the taxpayers to fund government agencies and their corporate crony contractors, so too is the idea of Pandemic used to scare the world into buying vaccines for a disease that is not really a mortal threat and is not really fatal if a normal person were to catch it.

Like H1NI, the so-called swine flu.

Michael Adams from NaturalNews gives us the lowdown:

After months of stalling, the World Health Organization (WHO) has finally revealed the names of key pandemic advisors who influenced its decision to declare a phase six pandemic last year -- -- a decision that resulted in a financial windfall for vaccine manufacturers. As you'll see here, that list includes at least five expert advisors received money from vaccine companies.

Here's who received money from Big Pharma and then influenced the WHO decision to declare a pandemic:

Arnold Monto is a professor from the United States who has received money from virtually all the major vaccine manufacturers: GSK, Novartis, Roche, Baxter and Sanofi Pasteur. He has specifically been given grant money by Sanofi Pasteur to study influenza vaccines.

Nancy Cox works for the US Centers for Disease Control, which already maintains a pro-vaccine stance while utterly ignoring the importance of vitamin D in halting infectious disease. Nancy took funds from the International Federation of Pharmaceutical Manufacturers and Associations (IFPMA) to conduct work on vaccines.

John Wood works at Britain's National Institute for Biological Standards and Control (NIBSC). They've taken money from Sanofi Pasteur, Novartis and several other companies focused on influenza vaccine research.

Maria Zambon is a professor at the UK Health Protection Agency Centre for Infection. She has received money from Sanofi, Novartis, CSL, Baxter and GSK.

Neil Ferguson is also a professor, and he has accepted money from Roche and GSK Biologicals.

There may be more to this story, too: The financial ties explained here are merely the ones that these people chose to publicly disclose to WHO. There may yet be other ties that currently remain a secret and will have to be dug up by some determined reporter...

There's the motive, in plain view for the world to see. One could easily say that the entire reason why H1N1 never actually became an epidemic, was thanks to the foresight and preparation of the WHO, taking action before it was too late.

Except, that's not what happened.

Why does it matter that WHO advisors took money from vaccine companies? It's simple: The decision to declare H1N1 swine flu to be a phase 6 pandemic was made by the WHO under advisement from these very people who received money from vaccine companies. And that decision, we now know, resulted in a windfall of profits for the vaccine companies.

Those profits, in turn, were burdened by the taxpayers whose expenditures were largely worthless because a huge portion of those vaccines are now expiring and have to be destroyed.
Got that...they didn't even use huge portions of the vaccines before the "threat" was declared over. In other words, the vaccines didn't end the outbreak.

But I'm sure the vaccine manufacturers can't wait to sell millions of vaccines the next time their representatives "advise" the WHO to declare the next influenza outbreak a "phase 6 pandemic."

Asking a bunch of vaccine experts whether you should declare a pandemic is sort of like asking your insurance agent whether you need more insurance.

Well of course you do!

Valedictorian: "I have successfully shown that I was the best slave."

 The following speech was delivered by top of the class student Erica Goldson during the graduation ceremony at Coxsackie-Athens High School on June 25, 2010:

There is a story of a young, but earnest Zen student who approached his teacher, and asked the Master, “If I work very hard and diligently, how long will it take for me to find Zen? The Master thought about this, then replied, “Ten years . .” ? The student then said, “But what if I work very, very hard and really apply myself to learn fast — How long then?” Replied the Master, “Well, twenty years.” “But, if I really, really work at it, how long then?” asked the student. “Thirty years,” replied the Master. “But, I do not understand,” said the disappointed student. “At each time that I say I will work harder, you say it will take me longer. Why do you say that?”? Replied the Master, “When you have one eye on the goal, you only have one eye on the path.”

This is the dilemma I’ve faced within the American education system. We are so focused on a goal, whether it be passing a test, or graduating as first in the class. However, in this way, we do not really learn. We do whatever it takes to achieve our original objective.

Some of you may be thinking, “Well, if you pass a test, or become valedictorian, didn’t you learn something? Well, yes, you learned something, but not all that you could have. Perhaps, you only learned how to memorize names, places, and dates to later on forget in order to clear your mind for the next test. School is not all that it can be. Right now, it is a place for most people to determine that their goal is to get out as soon as possible.

I am now accomplishing that goal. I am graduating. I should look at this as a positive experience, especially being at the top of my class. However, in retrospect, I cannot say that I am any more intelligent than my peers. I can attest that I am only the best at doing what I am told and working the system. Yet, here I stand, and I am supposed to be proud that I have completed this period of indoctrination. I will leave in the fall to go on to the next phase expected of me, in order to receive a paper document that certifies that I am capable of work. But I contest that I am a human being, a thinker, an adventurer – not a worker. A worker is someone who is trapped within repetition – a slave of the system set up before him. But now, I have successfully shown that I was the best slave. 
I did what I was told to the extreme. While others sat in class and doodled to later become great artists, I sat in class to take notes and become a great test-taker. While others would come to class without their homework done because they were reading about an interest of theirs, I never missed an assignment. While others were creating music and writing lyrics, I decided to do extra credit, even though I never needed it. So, I wonder, why did I even want this position? Sure, I earned it, but what will come of it? When I leave educational institutionalism, will I be successful or forever lost? I have no clue about what I want to do with my life; I have no interests because I saw every subject of study as work, and I excelled at every subject just for the purpose of excelling, not learning. And quite frankly, now I’m scared.

John Taylor Gatto, a retired school teacher and activist critical of compulsory schooling, asserts: 

We could encourage the best qualities of youthfulness – curiosity, adventure, resilience, the capacity for surprising insight simply by being more flexible about time, texts, and tests, by introducing kids into truly competent adults, and by giving each student what autonomy he or she needs in order to take a risk every now and then. But we don’t do that.

Between these cinderblock walls, we are all expected to be the same. We are trained to ace every standardized test, and those who deviate and see light through a different lens are worthless to the scheme of public education, and therefore viewed with contempt.

H. L. Mencken wrote in The American Mercury for April 1924 that the aim of public education is not:

...to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is its aim in the United States.

To illustrate this idea, doesn’t it perturb you to learn about the idea of “critical thinking.” Is there really such a thing as “uncritically thinking?” To think is to process information in order to form an opinion. But if we are not critical when processing this information, are we really thinking? Or are we mindlessly accepting other opinions as truth?

This was happening to me, and if it wasn’t for the rare occurrence of an avant-garde tenth grade English teacher, Donna Bryan, who allowed me to open my mind and ask questions before accepting textbook doctrine, I would have been doomed. I am now enlightened, but my mind still feels disabled. I must retrain myself and constantly remember how insane this ostensibly sane place really is.

And now here I am in a world guided by fear, a world suppressing the uniqueness that lies inside each of us, a world where we can either acquiesce to the inhuman nonsense of corporatism and materialism or insist on change. We are not enlivened by an educational system that clandestinely sets us up for jobs that could be automated, for work that need not be done, for enslavement without fervency for meaningful achievement. We have no choices in life when money is our motivational force. Our motivational force ought to be passion, but this is lost from the moment we step into a system that trains us, rather than inspires us.

We are more than robotic bookshelves, conditioned to blurt out facts we were taught in school. We are all very special, every human on this planet is so special, so aren’t we all deserving of something better, of using our minds for innovation, rather than memorization, for creativity, rather than futile activity, for rumination rather than stagnation? We are not here to get a degree, to then get a job, so we can consume industry-approved placation after placation. There is more, and more still.

The saddest part is that the majority of students don’t have the opportunity to reflect as I did. The majority of students are put through the same brainwashing techniques in order to create a complacent labor force working in the interests of large corporations and secretive government, and worst of all, they are completely unaware of it. I will never be able to turn back these 18 years. I can’t run away to another country with an education system meant to enlighten rather than condition. This part of my life is over, and I want to make sure that no other child will have his or her potential suppressed by powers meant to exploit and control. We are human beings. We are thinkers, dreamers, explorers, artists, writers, engineers. We are anything we want to be – but only if we have an educational system that supports us rather than holds us down. A tree can grow, but only if its roots are given a healthy foundation.

For those of you out there that must continue to sit in desks and yield to the authoritarian ideologies of instructors, do not be disheartened. You still have the opportunity to stand up, ask questions, be critical, and create your own perspective. Demand a setting that will provide you with intellectual capabilities that allow you to expand your mind instead of directing it. Demand that you be interested in class. Demand that the excuse, “You have to learn this for the test” is not good enough for you. Education is an excellent tool, if used properly, but focus more on learning rather than getting good grades.

For those of you that work within the system that I am condemning, I do not mean to insult; I intend to motivate. You have the power to change the incompetencies of this system. I know that you did not become a teacher or administrator to see your students bored. You cannot accept the authority of the governing bodies that tell you what to teach, how to teach it, and that you will be punished if you do not comply. Our potential is at stake.

For those of you that are now leaving this establishment, I say, do not forget what went on in these classrooms. Do not abandon those that come after you. We are the new future and we are not going to let tradition stand. We will break down the walls of corruption to let a garden of knowledge grow throughout America. Once educated properly, we will have the power to do anything, and best of all, we will only use that power for good, for we will be cultivated and wise. We will not accept anything at face value. We will ask questions, and we will demand truth.

So, here I stand. I am not standing here as valedictorian by myself. I was molded by my environment, by all of my peers who are sitting here watching me. I couldn’t have accomplished this without all of you. It was all of you who truly made me the person I am today. It was all of you who were my competition, yet my backbone. In that way, we are all valedictorians.

I am now supposed to say farewell to this institution, those who maintain it, and those who stand with me and behind me, but I hope this farewell is more of a “see you later” when we are all working together to rear a pedagogic movement. But first, let’s go get those pieces of paper that tell us that we’re smart enough to do so!

The Business of War

We are now moving into the 10th year of the ill-defined, no-end-in-sight "war on terror."

Never forget that War is a Racket....a very lucrative and profitable one at that as well.

War is just a racket. A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what it seems to the majority of people. Only a small inside group knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few at the expense of the masses. Out of war a few people make huge fortunes.

This is why we fight..

Here is an abbreviated run down of the top 10 corporations making out like bandits in the Iraq war...don't forget, all the numbers in red are basically paid for with U.S. tax dollars:

Halliburton: Halliburton’s KBR, Inc. division bilked government agencies to the tune of $17.2 billion in Iraq war-related revenue from 2003-2006 alone.

Veritas Capital Fund/DynCorp: At first blush, a private equity fund (and not, say, Exxon-Mobil) being the number 2 profiteer in the Iraq war might sound strange. However, the cleverly run fund has raked in $1.44 billion through its DynCorp subsidiary.

The Washington Group International: [6] has parlayed its expertise the repair, restore, and maintenance of high-output oil fields into $931 million in Iraq-related revenue from 2003-2006.

Environmental Chemical: The privately held Burlingame, California company has stockpiled $878 million by the end of fiscal 2006 for munitions disposal, calling upon its “decade of experience planning and conducting UXO removal, investigation, and certification activities.”

Aegis: UK company with a Pentagon contract to coordinate all of Iraq’s private security operations [10]. The Pentagon contract is good for $430 million.

International American Products: Running electrical wiring in hostile war zones is dicey business, but International American Products [12] has stuck their neck out and collected a cool $759 million in just 3 years for its efforts.

Erinys: In the space of just 16 months, Erinys successfully trained, equipped, and mobilized an all-Iraqi guard force of nearly 20,000 to protect the nation’s oil pipeline from terrorist attack or sabotage. They scored $136 million for its effort.

Fluor: Scored a monster $1.1 billion contract  in 2004 to build, service, and manage water/sewage systems in Iraq.

Perini: Controlled by financier Richard Blum, is one of the more controversial companies to have scored big-time Iraq war money. That’s because Blum’s wife, Senator Dianne Feinstein, appears to have used her seat on the Military Construction Appropriations sub-comittee to steer the $650 million environmental cleanup deal in his favor.

URS Corporation: Long known as one of the nation’s major defense contractors, San Francisco-based URS has collected $792 million in environmental cleanup fees in Iraq war zones. As with Perini, both Blum and Feinstein have come under intense scrutiny to answer questions about the apparent conflict of interest inherent in Feinstein helping to secure such an exorbitant government contract for her investment banker husband.

President Dwight D. Eisenhower was right.

This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government. We recognize the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals so that security and liberty may prosper together.
