New section: Comment of the Week.
This is the initial entry.
On social media, the story is (yet again) about a female teacher having sexual relations with a teenage boy. This comment was on point:
Remember it's an "affair" or "romantic relationship" when the sexual predator is a woman but a "rape" or "sexual assault against a minor" when the predator is a man.
Either it's statutory rape, as what the law says (albeit more lenient for female rapists) for both sexes or it's an inappropriate "romantic relationship" for both.
Unless we're officially making special considerations by calling the female sex, as a whole, retarded and in need of special protections, this double-standard needs to go.

THE PRESIDENT’S CABINET
These numbers help explain why these last eight years were disastrous for the USA. I read the last item and then look at Trump's Cabinet. No wonder Washington, DC is in a turmoil.
Trump's picks are bosses who expect their employees to work.
This is what bothers a lot of people about Trump. He won't accept a can't do attitude, or inexperienced, incompetent performance. He will get results; it just might not be smooth or pretty.
Here are some amazing statistics : Make sure you read to the bottom. An eye opener!
I. These 10 States now have more people on welfare than they do employed!
2. New Mexico
8. New York
II. Last month, the Senate Budget Committee reports that in fiscal year 2012, between food stamps, housing support, child care, Medicaid and other benefits, the average U.S. Household below the poverty line received $168.00 a day in government support.
What's the problem with that much support? Well, the median household income in America is just over $50,000,which averages out to $137.13 a day.
To put it another way, being on welfare now pays the equivalent of $30.00 an hour for 40 hour week, while the average job pays $24.00 an hour.
III. Check the last set of statistics!!
The percentage of each past president's cabinet who had worked in the private business sector prior to their appointment to the cabinet.
You know what the private business sector is: A real-life business not a government job.
Here are the percentages:
38% T. Roosevelt
50% F. D. Roosevelt
51% GH Bush
55% GW Bush
This helps explain the bias, if not the incompetence, of the last administration: ONLY 8% of them have ever worked in private business!
That's right! Only eight percent - the least, by far of the last 19 presidents! And these people tried to tell our corporations how to run their businesses?
How could Obama, president of a major nation and society, the one with the most successful economic system in world history, stand and talk about business when he's never worked for one?
Or about jobs when he has never really had one? And, when it's the same for 92% of his senior staff and closest advisers? They've spent most of their time in academia, government, and/or non-profit jobs or as "community organizers."
Probably a good idea to pass this on, because we'll NEVER see these facts in the main stream media, or from the alphabet networks.

From this article,
The problem for men is that there are no good women left since feminism has created a sea of entitled, worthless, bitter women that no man needs to take a risk on. And there are loads of manginas who enable these women, by going on social media and worshiping them with ‘likes’ and, “Oh gurl you’re so hot” even if the chick is a 5 or a landwhale. If you do this, you are part of the problem—propping up the egos of women who don’t deserve it.
Enter this recent copy & paste Bookface quote:
We all know that we’re not the only one. But even I am so saddened by the number of women I am friends with who I see have gone through this too in their life. I love you all.
If you are a man, you should never click "like" on this status or any like it. If you have, you need to promptly turn in your man-card, assuming you haven't turned it in already.

In this YouTube video, the YouTuber explains why more Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners are turning to wrestling for takedowns than turn to Judo. Of course, BJJ has takedowns and throws, but many BJJ schools don't teach them, or don't cover them very often.
1. Risk Vs. Reward
When considering an opponent who can and will take your back, wrestling takedowns are low risk, high reward. Judo throws are high risk, high reward. Many Judo throws require you to turn your back. Turning one's back is inadviseable due to the risk of being choked.
2. Learning Curve
There is less of a learning curve for takedowns vs throws. Proficiency can come much faster. Also, the subpar comparison: someone with subpar takedowns will still likely take down an opponent who has subpar takedown defense. A person with subpar throws will likely fail to throw an opponent who has subpar throw defense.
3. Judo rules are prohibitive.
Recently, Judo banned takedowns such as double legs, single legs, and the like. Yet, these takedowns are commonly seen in BJJ tournaments, submission grappling, MMA, and in actual combat.
4. The Judogi.
The gi grips - which are required for virtually all Judo throws, are simply not there in nogi situations. Wrestling takedowns can be executed on an opponent who wears a gi, and on an opponent who wears no gi. No tweaks needed. Judo throws will require tweaks to use on a nogi opponent. Oddly enough, those tweaks will come from wrestling.
Most Judo clubs don't train as intensely as do most BJJ and wrestling clubs.
As for me: I know the Judo throws, but I do not claim a high level of proficiency. I practice takedowns and takedown defenses in every class. Throw defenses come naturally as a part of that.

A quick Google search of "toxic masculinity" yields a plethora of information and misinformation. Generally, though, most liberal sources associate the following with the term: dominance, misogyny / devaluation of women, extreme self-reliance, the suppression of emotions, homophobia, and violent tendencies. Let's dig into these!
According to numerous verses in the Bible, the man is the head of the house. Women naturally seek a dominant male as a spouse. Ephesians 5:22 will be a good starting point.
Misogyny / devaluation of women
Women and men are different. One is not greater. One is not lesser. Men and women think, act, and communicate differently. There is research proving these and other differences. Of course, the mere mention of differences outside of one being greater than the other is immediately labeled misogynist and alternately, devaluing of women. Not so.
Extreme self reliance
Of course. Because modern socialist liberalism thinks everything needs to come from the government. Ironically, they don't realize the government is the ultimate "Big Daddy" providing everything in their lives. It's the ultimate symbol of patriarchy. 2 Thessalonians 3:10 says this: For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."
Suppression of emotions.
Liberals will use the word "suppression" here in a negative connotation. A better description would be "making decisions based on fact rather than feeling." James 1:19, 20: My dearly loved brothers, understand this: Everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak, and slow to anger, for man’s anger does not accomplish God’s righteousness.
The Left uses the term homophobia - fear of homosexuality. Again, they twist things. The real description is "doesn't approve of homosexuality." Romans 1:26-28 is a good start.
Humans are a violent species. Most experts agree that finding a productive outlet is far more effective than trying to repress the urges, only to have them boil over. Martial arts, shooting, and the like are normal and natural outlets.
Therefore, I am gladly #ToxicMasculinity

In 2006, your humble blog author found himself at a town hall-style meeting, where the US Senate candidates for Tennessee were debating. On the Republican side were Bob Corker, Ed Bryant, and Van Hilleary. The sole Democrat candidate, Harold Ford, Jr., sent a representative in his stead.
Each of the guests at this town hall meeting were permitted to write down to potential questions for the candidates. Not all questions were chosen, but your humble blog author did get the opportunity to ask his question to the candidates.
The question: " Given that there is a demonstrable correlation between tax reduction and elevated tax revenues, and given that the US budget is in deficit spending, what are your plans to reduce taxes?"
Harold Ford, Jr. representative - "We are in deficit spending, and the only way to get out of that is to raise taxes on the rich."
Ed Bryant - <<<Lays out a plan to cut specific taxes that harm the middle class the worst.>>>
Van Hilleary - " You are right there is a correlation between reduced tax rates, and increased tax revenues. If it is a tax, I seek to reduce or eliminate it."
Then it got fun...
Bob Corker - "Where are you from, sir?"
Usagi - "Chattanooga is my hometown, sir. But I currently reside here in the Nashville area."
Corker - "Then you are familiar with all the good I was able to accomplish for your hometown..."
Usagi [interrupts] - "Actually, I escaped in a balloon before you demolished the place."
<<< laughter in the room >>>
Midget-man Corker tried to stare a hole in me.

Found this article shared by a supposed Christian friend on social media. One cannot read the whole article without subscribing - which I do not recommend. The part that can be read is posted below :
I Never Became Straight. Perhaps That Was Never God’s Goal.
This is not a story of being gay and becoming straight.
But maybe I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s rewind to the beginning. My parents met at a gay nightclub in San Francisco. My mother just wanted a safe place to dance. My father was the security guard. He abandoned my mother and me after abusing both of us physically. I didn’t even know he existed until I was 10, by which time my mother had remarried.
Growing up, I had no bedtime I can remember. I was allowed to watch horror movies at a young age. When it came to sex, nothing was hidden. There were jokes and stories and, when I was 10, I helped my mother clip images from an adult magazine for a bachelorette party.
At 14, I met my first boyfriend. We laughed at each other’s jokes, watched similar shows, and got along easily. But before long he and I broke up, as teenagers do.
A year later, I met my first girlfriend in an AP European history class. She was a senior, beautiful and popular. Since I excelled in the class, she asked me to come over and help her study. When we met at her house, something was different. Conversation flowed easily, rapidly, unexpectedly. I was struck by her beauty. The attraction felt like what other girls described feeling for a boy.
Over the next week, I began wondering, “Is it okay to feel this way about a girl?” I was vaguely familiar with the notion that church folk condemned such things, but as I tried puzzling out why, I came up empty. Little could I imagine ever understanding the Bible’s teaching on sexuality, let alone submitting to it.
The First Kiss
I set myself a goal: Before this girl went to college, she would kiss me. I lied about my sexual history, placed myself strategically in her path, and ...
Big surprise, you detail daddy issues and chaos in upbringing, and you turn out to "be gay." There's is not a single more attention seeking schtick than open gayness. A life lived seeking attention and order in youth will result in greater lengths to seek attention and order once grown. And this article snippet details that perfectly.
This is in a Christian publication. The Christian Church is at the center of the cultural war. On one side are the globo-homos and their agenda. On the other side is Western Civilization as a whole.

Some people, when describing their luck in life, use the phrase: "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all."
Upon observing my personal luck being orders of magnitudes worse than even that, my brother nicknamed me "Lemonade Stand" when I was in high school. The logic goes like this:
1. "If life hands you lemons, then make lemonade!"
2. Well, you've been handed so many lemons, you've got the whole lemonade stand!
Hence this new entry in the blog.
First up - just a few weeks ago, I replaced a couple of leaky faucets in the house. This, I've done before. But a few weeks ago, we got the opportunity for lemonade!
The new faucet in the kitchen broke within a week! Sadly, I didn't have the box or receipt, as I've never seen this happen before. Fortunately, the retailer allowed me to return it as hey had logged the purchase and I could identify it. A new faucet, and I was set.
Except the new one broke within moments of installation!
Again, I take it back. I get a replacent. This one has worked for three plus weeks now. And yes, I still have the receipt.

Perhaps the reason that some players take a knee is in protest of the issues of police brutality. Nobody wants police brutality. The issue of police brutality is not as big an issue as is being made of it. And kneeling during the national anthem only appears as disrespectful to those who have served our Nation. So, the protest is poorly constructed and poorly executed.
As with so many others, if I were to make such a political statement on the job, I would expect disciplinary action, up to an including termination of employment. Since no football players have been disciplined to date, we must work under the premise that the owners are complicit in these actions.
On the other hand, the WWE has not politicized their programming. Certainly, there's always a heel (bad guy) who is from another nation and uses that to increase the strong emotions against him - and that wrestler is Rusev. But that's not so much political as it is showmanship. In fact, it plays off the natural Nationalist sentiments that most Americans feel.
Those who criticize WWE as entertainment for reasons of it being "fake" usually have no issue watching a movie, and they rarely see the irony. Similarly, if you think NFL games aren't fixed, then I hate to be the one to tell you... but they fix many games. Oh, and Santa Claus isn't real, either.
Otherwise, if WWE isn't for you, that's fine. There are plenty of other distractions in life. To each his own.
Update: article name changed. Lefty had a better name for it.

Folks, read this meme and read it well. Your humble author is pretty decent with a rifle... but this would have been a tall task. A tall task indeed.
Have you seen the videos circulating that show other shooters engaging the crowd? There's more here than meets the eye.

A friend shares his thoughts on Vegas and gun control. Posted with his permission.
My brothers and sisters, let me tell you about my morning. I walk into work this morning and get bombarded by people wanting to fight about gun control. Well crap I just want to drink my coffee for a minute.
I know I don't need to tell you all this but people are stupid when it comes to this subject. First question - why should the shooter be allowed to own so many guns? Answer, to my knowledge he purchased them legally and never been in trouble to prevent the purchase.
Why should someone be allowed to buy an automatic gun?
Reply - you can't just go buy a full auto.
Counter - yes you can because Gander Mountain sold them before they went out.
Reply - they sold automatic weapons?
Counter - YES they did I saw them .
Reply - you see this is what is wrong with the left. You are so uneducated on the subject, you want to spew out about things you are dead wrong about. Terms like semi automatic and automatic are used you all you hear is automatic.
It seems I get this crap all the time from these people because I am open about my feelings about America , freedom and guns. I walk in everyday with my EDC with a medical kit strapped on it. They just see me as a gun toting nut.
Folks - it's a never ending battle against The #Narrative .

After the massacre in Las Vegas, "entertainer" Jimmy Kimmel went on an emotional rant against the 2nd Amendment on his show.
Yes, the same Jimmy Kimmel who advocates that his daughter needs Obamacare, even though he is a millionaire with an option for group healthcare coverage.
His 9+ minute sermon was laced with #Libtard talking points and fueled by raw emotion. Naturally, it was very short on fact. Specifically for this post, Kimmel said there are "3 loopholes for background checks" - private sales, online sales, and gun shows.
Private sales are exempt from background checks (as they should be) in most places.
Online sales are not exempt from background checks. A gun ordered online must be shipped. Federal regulation requires a firearm to be shipped to a licensed gun dealer. Federal regulation requires that for the firearm to be transferred (sold) to someone other than that dealer, a Form 4473 be completed and a successful background check performed.
Now, if someone posts an online add for a gun, and the buyer and seller can meet locally, a face to face transaction can occur via private sale where permitted. But this is not an online sale.
Third, the so-called "gun show loophole." Again, if a gun is owned by a dealer, then to be sold, we are back to the Form 4473 and a successful background check performed. And again, if one private individual has a gun at a gun show, and wishes to sell to another private individual, then that is permissible in most places.
So, again, the #Narrative is chock full of lies and misleading statements.

What happened in Vegas did not stay in Vegas.
I'm not 100% sure what the truth of the story is at this time, but the truth is seldom all that closely related to the Official Story.
Mass killings are almost universally stopped by masculine men with guns.
No motive for a massacre in America after 24 hrs means the motive was most likely liberally motivated.
Hillary Clinton is a blight on the Democrat party, and she's par for the course among #Libtards .
Despite the moaning and wailing from the Left, the NRA did not pull the trigger.

On Tuesday, Roy Moore from Alabama beat The Swamp's very own Luther Strange in the primaries. Of course, #fakenews said Trump lost this battle, and they point to Trump's tweets as their reference.
Here's the thing - everyone knew Strange is part of the Establishment. Trump "campaigned" for him so that Strange would be politically indebted to him. Trump knew that Moore will side with him, so it was a no-lose situation for Trump. He gets votes his way in either outcome.
Of course, the better outcome prevailed.
And if you ask #fakenews , they'd tell you Trump is mad about it. And they will cite the infamous "unnamed sources." Problem is, it's the establishment and the #fakenews who are mad. Moore is no friend to the left. He is certainly the embodiment of the Alt Right.

The only correct time to take a knee is when accuracy is needed out to 300 yards.
Liberals hate memes because they are effective.
#fakenews CNN would have you believe Trump has lost political battles lately. Problem is, they cannot tell you what those battles were.
Getting blocked by liberals on Twitter is a badge of honor. I keep up with my notch count.
The more I interact with liberals, the more I realize that the vast majority are heavily medicated. Some even legally.
Take out the illegal immigrants votes, the dead votes, illegal votes, and the Democrat votes that were counted multiple times, and Trump won the popular vote by about 62 million to 54 million, give or take. And he ups his electoral vote count, as well.
Trump explains everything in Art of the Deal. It's a great read.
Bob Corker won't run for re-election. This is great news for Tennessee and the country.

Alpha Game coined the term, and describes it best. Search his website for more - it's a treasure trove. A good summary quote:
Bitterness is the chief hallmark of the Gamma. They are bitter about many things, but above all, about men who are more successful with women than they are. Someone once characterized Gammas as "Alpha ambition without the ability", but it would be more accurate to say "Alpha entitlement without the attributes".
Krauser gave a good summary of many of Alpha Game's posts on Gamma at this link. Some of my favorites:
* Gammas will actively pick fights they can’t win against higher-ranking men. This is because the Secret King can’t accept that nobody appreciates his value but being feminised they don’t really understand how men handle conflict. Their risk assessment is faulty, like a belligerent woman screaming “you can’t hit me I’m a girl” before she’s decked on WorldStarHipHop.
* Gammas can’t back down from these fights because that means admitting defeat, which goes against the Secret King belief. Also, everything is too personal, being feminised. So rather than slink away from a beating they have to keep running their mouth and keep getting beaten up.
* Gammas will lie, spin, and employ sophistry to maintain the illusion of winning when obviously losing. The evidence doesn’t actually support the winning, so it’s avoided, but they don’t realise how transparent their defeat is.
* Gammas use the feminised debating tactic of tackle the man not the ball. They will directly insult in order to create badfeelz, because they project their own fear of badfeelz and assume their opponent is similarly wounded by it.
A good summary of Sigma compared to Gamma:
A Sigma is thrust into leadership positions, and doesn't want to be.
A Gamma wants to be in leadership positions, and often can't manage to be put in one.

The author recently had an opportunity to speak with an individual who works in Talent acquisition for a major software firm. She relays this story:
An applicant shows up for a job interview with his mother in tow. Yes, his mother. What's worse, she answers all the interview questions for them. The youth, about 24 years of age, simply hides behind his resume the entire time. Even when the interviewer asked a direct question, saying, "now this one will be for the applicant," the mom would answer for him.
Needless to say, this applicant did not get offered a job.

"Absorb what is useful, reject what is useless."
- Bruce Lee
It's important to evaluate and re-evaluate what techniques and tactics you train. The advantage we have these days is the absolute plethora of information. Using MMA as a laboratory, and hence, a template, is a good starting point.
The Pareto Principle - the "80/20 rule"
If we train our top techniques 80% of the time, then what to do with the other 20% of our time? The remaining 20% can also be divided into 80% and 20%. The breakdown would then be 80% - 16% - 4%. An easy way to remember this is 80-15-5. Spend 80% of your time on primary techniques, 15% of your time on secondary techniques, and 5% of your time on other (tertiary) techniques.
Takedowns used in MMA can vary, but double legs and single legs are the bulk of takedowns attempted and landed. Again, referencing the Pareto Principle, 80% of our time should be spent with these two takedowns, and their setups.
Using self defense as a base, inside trips and rear takedowns would form the secondary techniques for takedowns. Spend 15% of your time training these.
Tertiary takedowns in jiu-jitsu would include classic throws such as hip throw, monkey flip, outside sweep, inner sweep, and the like.
80% of time -
15% of time -
5% of time -

Observed a few days ago - pictures from a class I had wanted to attend. However, once it was announced who one of the instructors would be, I became completely disinclined to attend.
Some time back, this person identified himself as a "deplorable" - even sharing this meme on Bookface:
Almost immediately thereafter, however, he started sharing anti-Trump posts and anti-Right sentiments on his very same Bookface account. I muted him and the problem was solved... for a while.
The name popped back up in my feed some time later, as he was willfully engaging in Leftwing trolling of some Right-leaning feeds I follow. A quick check, and he has since liked and followed the following pages:
* Joe Kennedy for Congress - a SJW Democrat from Boston.
* Veterans Against Republican Ignorance Facebook group.
* Bernie Sanders 4 President 2020 Facebook group.
* Fans of Rachel Maddow Facebook group.
* Last Week Tonight TV show with John Oliver.
Furthermore, everything posted on his timeline from January 21 to present has been extreme leftwing ideology. Furthermore, his online and in person tactics revealed him as a Gamma. At this point, several months ago, a buddy or two and I engaged in tried and true #AltRight tactics. We were unfriended within minutes.
Or so I thought until this particular class came up. And then I learned he would be an instructor.
There's no way I can condone taking a class from a known and avowed liberal. Because liberals willingly believe in things demonstrably untrue, it is to be expected that they would teach things they know to be untrue. At that point, any worth their class might have once had is immediately for naught.
Furthermore, any credentials and / or expertise they claim, must be summarily dismissed. Integrity, once lost, is not easily regained. And even if they can document credentials and expertise through independent parties, the subject matter they speak of will all be questionable.
In summary - it's just best to avoid these types.

There are two 'Alt-Rights'.
One is more accurately described as the New Right. These people like to wear MAGA hats, create memes & have fun.
They include whites, blacks, Asians, latinos, gays and everyone else. These are the people who helped Trump win the election.
The other faction likes to fester in dark corners of sub-reddits and obsess about Jews, racial superiority and Adolf Hitler.
This is a tiny fringe minority. They had no impact on the election.
Guess which faction the media is giving all the attention to?
If you consider yourself "conservative," and yet you believe media lies like this, then you are why conservatism has failed. You are a #cuckservative .
Gamma at that (no surprise)
Doesn't recognize Game, doesn't understand negotiations, or even human interaction at all. Probably a Secret King.

The sound of the homerun ball flying off the bat was heard yesterday. Are we talking about the all time MLB homerun record for the league in a season?
We are talking about President Trump's speech to the UN yesterday.
He mentioned sovereignty like it's going out of style. And it was, before he was elected. 19 times he said it. And the globo-homos reacted as one might predict:
"By-and-large, the entrenched politicians are globalists. Those of us out here in “flyover country,” who are viewed by the establishment as hicks and hayseeds, are the nationalists. We’re the ones who stand for the National Anthem, insist on rule of law, mind our own business, and don’t want to see our great nation pillaged by those who come here to take and to destroy. For this, we are called “racists” and “white nationalists/supremacists.”
On the other hand, this guy gets it:
And my favorite line of the speech:
"The problem in Venezuela is not that socialism has been poorly implemented, but that socialism has been faithfully implemented."
Oh, yeah, and he called the North Korean

I blame you and every "conservative" on radio (and fox news) who could have told the truth during the primary but instead chose ratings. [Quotes Sean Hannity]
#cuckservative 2 -
Who the hell thought Trump was a conservative anyway?
#cuckservative 1 -
100% of his supporters that I debated during the primary and those I spoke with while phone banking for Cruz.
#cuckservative 2 -
I mean, Goursch was a great pick. I love his talk to North Korea. But he's as conservative as I am pretty and I'm one ugly mf'er
Folks, Cruz wasn't going to stand up to the media and the swamp. He is part of it. He was going to cave. Conservatism has failed to conserve anything. It's proponents in Washington give in without negotiations on everything. At least with Trump, we have a negotiator who will get us something in return.
But that's not even the main point. The main point to is that at this time, it's not right vs left anymore. It's not liberals vs conservatives. It's globalists vs nationalists. If you like the country we live in, you'd best find yourself on the nationalist team.

Liberals let you know what they are thinking too easily. They have no poker face. They tell you their own faults when they start projecting.
Liberal on social media sees my gun photos and training pictures. "You don't scare me with your leaf colored clothing and your guns! I know you want people to fear you when you post pictures like that."
And that's the key - it's all Law 3 Projection. If a liberal ever put on a uniform of any sort, or trained with guns, or the like; it would all be in an effort to frighten their perceived enemies.
I put on a uniform, and train, not to intimidate; but because there is value in the training, value in the brotherhood of camaraderie, and because history shows it possible that I might have to use these skills one day. It's not for show, it's for real. No posturing.
And the poor liberal mind will never find this conceivable.

Ever Had a Bad Day? Sure, we all have. But what constitutes a bad day?
So many people walk around, and if one bad thing happens in the day, the rest of their day is "ruined." Know someone like this? Is this you?
In many Japanese based martial arts circles, there is an ongoing maxim that states; in the East, if only one bad thing happens in a day, they consider it a good day.
I think many Americans would benefit from adopting this mentality. I think we can all agree that we all need to be more thankful.

The Ladders put out an article on seven interview questions that are out of the ordinary. Of course, in the article, they give some of the answers that people had for these questions. However, according to the article, the outcome of these answers is often in doubt.
So let's take a professional and logical approach to how to answer each question. The following answers are gut reactions by the author. They have been dressed up just a bit, solely for the sake of clear publication.
Remember: there are two basic types of interview questions. A behavioral interview question determines how you respond to common tasks and challenges. The idea is to let the interviewer see how you think and make decisions.
A canned interview question is designed to tell the interviewer either why they should hire you, or what you bring to their company. You will note that all seven questions from the Ladders article are variants of a canned interview question.
Cisco: What kind of tree would you be?
A - I would be an oak tree. Strong, dependable, and reliable at the core. The oak tree also gives to those around it - it gives shade, acorns for eating, as well as protection from the wind and rain.
Whole Foods Market: Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?
A - I would rather fight one horse-sized duck. Has anyone with real life experience can tell you, there is no effective way to fight multiple opponents, unless you have a weapon that is a force multiplier. Since that was not specified, I must presume that the fight will be as his. A single opponent can be learned, and weaknesses exploited.
Facebook: How much do you charge to wash every window in Seattle?
A - I wouldn't charge a dime. I would offer my services for free, provided that each company, whose window I washed, would donate an equitable sum to relief efforts in the Houston Texas area after the hurricane.
Clark Construction: A penguin walks over who is wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?
A - Why must we presume that the penguin can talk? Penguins walk, we all know that. Somebody could have put the sombrero on his head. It is logical to presume that this is what happened. But just because we see something out of the ordinary, we mustn't assume that regular rules no longer apply.
SpaceX: When a hot dog expands, in which direction does it split and why?
A - A hot dog will split lengthwise, in a nearly straight line. This is because such a split will enable the most pressure to be relieved, from the expanding gases and liquids inside.
U K Survey: : If a hippo gets stuck in a hole, how would you get it out?
A - Naturally, if it is an option, I would call a professional animal rescue team. Barring that, I would solicit the help of people who had the right tools and training to make just such a rescue attempt. If this must be accomplished by my hand only, and presuming that I would have only the most primitive of tools, all I would need would be a shovel. I could shovel dirt into the hole where the hippo stands, and as the dirt fills the hole that hippo would continue to stand on top of the dirt. Eventually he would be out.

On the occasion that I read a #Libtard or #cuckservative article in the mainstream media, I am immediately reminded why I don't go to them for news. It's all #fakenews . Furthermore, most of the articles follow the same 6 or 7 patterns.
One of those patterns is calling the current White House is in disarray. They say it's chaos. But the reality is, the White House is accomplishing just what we need it to accomplish. The key difference is that Trump is doing things differently.
What the #fakenews sees as chaos, is likely no different than what goes on in most major corporations. But these liberal snowflakes don't understand how business works, so they see this as chaos.
Imagine trying to explain a cell phone to a person from 1860 who is only familiar with the telegraph - it might seem similarly chaotic.

Some people are #cuckservative and don't mean to be. They agree with all or most principles of conservatism, and try to elect people they feel are conservative enough to represent them. They complain when conservative representatives betray them, but then they begrudgingly push the button for the same "RINO" in the next election to keep the Democrat out of office.
The problem is that conservatism has failed to conserve much of anything. So, the individual must change, or doom himself to a life of #cuckservatism .
The first thing that must be changed is mindset. You must be willing to win. There is no more moral high ground against the Left. The Left will crucify you if you show any moral high ground. Winning, even if small or incremental, must be your only goal.
The second thing you must change is your input. Garbage in leads to garbage out. You know the #fakenews is fake, so why believe any of it? Do not quote the #fakenews , do not read the #fakenews , do not watch the #fakenews , do not listen to the #fakenews , do not subscribe to the #fakenews , do not repeat the #fakenews , do not share the #fakenews , and most of all - do not believe anything from the #fakenews .
There are other things to be done to shed your #cuckservatism , but these are a good start.

Many moons ago, I worked in a customer-facing environment. As happens in every similar environment, occasionally people would want to speak with a manager, because they were not happy with a decision or policy. I saw this happen from both the entry level position, as well as from the position of a manager.
That said, there is some truth to the meme above.
Often, as a manager, if I related a decision or company position that the customer did not like, they would ask to speak to a manager. On a couple of occasions, when I advise them that I was the manager, they asked to speak to someone who could "make a decision."
My go to reply was this " don't confuse a decision you don't like with the inability to make a decision. I've made a decision already, you just don't like it."
That, friends, is what is wrong with #libtards today. They scream (in projection) that Trump is unfit for office. It is really the #libtard who is unfit for office. They bash Trump's decision making ability, when the fact of the matter is that they simply just don't like the decision.
Never confuse the ability to make a decision with a decision that you just don't like.

Lefty does a type of blog post called "Quick Hitters." Going to try my hand at that here, because I like the format. Essentially, these thoughts warrant a paragraph - no more. Each one is worth discussing, but not worth an entire blog post.
If black lives really mattered, they would protest abortion, Margaret Sanger, and black on black crime.
#fakenews would not be failing, if they actually reported real news.
Gun control is never about guns, it's about control. Same with socialized health care.
The greatest thing the alt right ever did, aside from electing Trump, is create the term alt left. The left hates that term.
You know that #AntiFA is failing when Nazi Pelosi calls them out.
Things the left hates the most: when the alt right fights fire with fire, memes, accurate descriptions, and the truth.
Rhetoric is more effective than dialectic, when trying to persuade many people. The left had been using this for years. The alt right brought it out in the 2016 elections, and won because of it.
The media said that Trump reacted too soon to Hurricane Harvey. Then they said that he took too long to react. One cannot simultaneously react to soon, and take too long to react. This is why they are #fakenews .
Many #Libtards and #cuckservatives are both overweight, and suffer from mental illness. I believe the two are linked. I believe diet is the issue.
Using Jeff Foxworthy's "you might be a redneck" line, I need to create a series of blog posts based around "you might be a #cuckservative ." I could also create a "you might be a #libtard " as well, but then I would be repeating myself.
