Casual Conversations from Paradise

In this week alone, I have had the privilege to sit and have long conversations with two major defense contractors, a medical care professional in anesthesiology, a royal Marine who knew his shit and ours, a Quiet Soldier who has seen much pain,a high ranking sports official, a major developer, an awesome guy that worked area aviation, a high level banker, and some other people most never get to talk to in an average week. I will not mention their professions.

This happens almost every week with different professionals from across the board.

I have the luxury of watching professionals on twitter defuse major issues in half a day, even if half of you block or hate me. I still learn from you.

Sharing of expert power is a powerful thing and we need it now more than ever in this dumbed down world.

Where I AM is a place where the table teaches me almost every night and that is invaluable.
I want to thank all of you for opening up to teach me things I could never learn without you. I Am humbled and thankful for the time you took with me to explain things.

I could have no greater gift than understanding how these things are run by your generous experience and time you took to learn me.

These are things all Adults need to have an idea about, but the intimate knowledge I have obtained here is something some could only wish to pay for.

I could only hope Elders will always share such knowledge with Young Men like myself, especially those that are curious.

I would never trade what I have learned here from My Elders here for anything. I only Pray I may help someone else along the way with what you have paid for or been patient for me  to learn.
I AM working very hard to pass what I may and to give back what I have been given here to preserve OUR shared Civilization and maybe encourage others to seek more.

I also want to give more given the correct circumstance shall such opportunity present itself.

GOD Bless you all for this. It helps. It really does. I Pray you will forgive me for the chance and chances I have passed up by not doing so yet. The Teacher appears late sometimes.

New post on #Education. Collected for many years but plenty of answers lay here:

Education Links.

I have an elevated interest in Education, predominately K-12 which is failing our Children miserably. Sub-Standard government school systems with their unions are criminally neglectful of the most important task in our civilization.

Give them all vouchers. Money goes to the students, not to the schools. There is absolutely no excuse for this anymore. It’s a disgrace.

Shameless plug – Powerful Peace. #USN #TCOT #DOD #America #USA #clivecussler fans.

There is a very strong reasoning for pluralism in how all people live their lives with others. It is not more than just an expectation, it may be a calling…

All may learn. Go on and pre-order This book. It’s already an Amazon #1.

“Mr. DuBois is inviting you to the geopolitical and physical battlefield, into the homes of enemies and friends, through the military and political processes of War, and into the minds of the many men and women that serve in the Armed Forces.” 

It spans far more than battle and opens the field up in many diverse ways:

“…there are huge swaths of the Globe that remain only superficially “connected” both economically and technically. And while “we” are all busy laying battle lines we’re neglecting the ICT, education, and economics that will make the world a safer and more free place….”

There are full range of options presented to keep US out of war. It’s worth a read.

Don’t forget to wear red today.

Where was the Watch on Concordia?

Leaders must stand during disasters, even if they created it. A Captain has been accused of Manslaughter. This thing from front to end strikes me as a poor leadership and complacency. Court is not in session yet, but there is much to learn from this thing…. whatever it is.

“Theres some important issue here. If the captain set the course and the officer of the watch was NOT allowed to deviate from it even if he suspected that it was dangerous THEN this goes against everything I was trained to do as a navigating cadet when I was on tankers many moons ago. In my days we had no sat nav so the responsbility was clearly with the officer of the watch….period. Now if I read this correctly what the article is saying is that sat navs systems are pre set by the captain and no deviation is allowed……If thats right then this is a technology assisted collision where responsbility has shifted away from the officer of the watch. If its true this is how its happened then this will happen again..”

03/01/12 – To add insult to injury –  What You’re Paying for Your Child to Learn at College

Filed under: Corruption, Education, Update

Conservative principles and discernment #tcot #governance

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. “

“Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.”

It is the duty of every adult to educate himself, to discern between right and wrong. The truth is not subjective, that is a childish notion.

In order to learn, you must first develop a process. It is called a thought process. This is done by using deductive logic, reason, and life experience. If this process is not used, you are unable to discern.

Without discernment, you are not an adult. You are merely a child or a sheep. If you are un-prepared to collect information that seems counter to what you believe, than you are simply unable to learn.

I AM watching one of my favorite Nations unravel due to the lack of fundamental truth in doctrine. Corrupt doctrine has permeated every level of our society. From Education to governance to religion. Never before have I seen so many stupid people in charge of this Nations power. And believe me, they are very stupid. Unbelievably stupid.

I urge you to take a look at these Ten principles from the Russel Kirk Center in order to help provide clarity.

It may be helpful in your moral pursuit in the spirit of the LAW.

Unabashed competition paves the moral path forward, not coercive utopian cronyism

Mobs have no brains. The UK could use a speech from Mayor Nutter. #riots

  

Ahh the good old ultra-violence

I seem to recall that London is probably one of the dumbest places to riot. If ever there was a city where “Big Brother” is watching you, London is it. Funny that some people did not think it would be effective.

Alas, they were proven wrong as thousands were rounded up and taken to a full time Provost once their faces were identified. As for the rioters, many people question the cause for such depraved behavior, and some like the Mail Online answer just that.  It seems that the conditions were not actually that bad.

At least the rioters would steal themselves some stylish sneakers on their way to steal their Ipods and flat screen TV’s but left the food and books alone. Hence, the riots were not actually about poverty but the fact that a kid was gunned down by the Police. The oppertunity presented itself and the kids streamed out of mommies basement into the street to bust up the quickie marts. The “Youths” in the UK have always seemed kind of on edge.

Here in the US, we sometimes have similar situations. Philadelphia’s mayor Michael Nutter confronted such a condition with class, maturity, and common sense. I am not one to adulate Democrats in general, but I was impressed with this guys speech.

There is a reason I dislike the liberal mantra is they bear false witness, teach people to covet, and use the government to steal. Once such an attitude is implanted in young minds, it is difficult to reverse. The “victim mentality” takes root.

I often wonder why politicians believe this mentality will help them in their Un-Godly quest for power. In another universe, I would think it wise to educate your children to become self sufficient and moral in their quest. It is easier to manage self governing individuals than un-ruly mobs.

Just Sayin.

Lack of funding is never, ever a reason to not educate your Children

Lack of #Education is the reason the world is in such a sorry state in these days. It is a crime to keep your people un-educated. Since the Department of Education was founded, test scores of the students and the value of proficiency has dropped precipitously. The kids are often more stupid having finished a four year degree than if they had not gone in the first place.

The K-12 is the most important part of our educational system and it has failed miserably. Why do we filter tax money to the federal government only to have it stolen by paper pushers, and then sent back to the states? That the biggest problem with the “Government”. It’s an extortion racket. I can think of many departments that need to DIE but I digress. I will list that simple exercise on a later date.

The “Higher” education default rate is nearing record. The K-12 is very expensive and delivers less than mediocre results. If there is ever a budget shortfall, the answer for the colleges are to raise tuition.

Government schools suck – plain and simple. It’s all about the unions, the asses that work for the unions, and the tenure. And if you need proof that the schools suck, just look at our elected representatives.

They abuse their power, and it shows. Give all the kids vouchers and let the parents choose the schools. Enough of this forced dumb-factory already.

Education is imperative.

I would like you to read this essay in it’s entirety.

I have been to many  countries that have been through economic collapse. I have learned about them studiously. I have spent years trying to find a model that fits the United States and eventually settled on Argentina.  It is the closest model for collapse I have found and I have decided that more people should prepare themselves mentally for the collapse of the United States. Our nation will collapse. It is not an if but a when and I believe it is coming faster than most think. There is no way we may maintain what we have any longer.

Some tend to believe this kind of talk depressing. Not myself. It is interesting to me and planning is something that men do. Plan for the worst, pray for the best, but by all means educate yourself for both.

Ferfal does a fantastic job explaining our future Here….

Eastern Europes collapse in short Here… And Russia

Also, as goes California, so goes the rest of the country.

Where to look for Inflation.

09/25/11 – Etiquette for a post collapse America.

10/19/11 – Argentina never recovered from their collapse. America will not either.

10/30/11 – ClubOrlov revises stages of collapse. It will all come down at once.

10/31/11 – Bosnia as a SHTF scenario. Survival prep.

11/06/11 – SHTF – see the brass knuckles of this situation and read up on this guy.

11/08/11 – Argentina reverts back to stupid hell by stupid people. How many Peron’s must they have to find reality? Will America vote for Peron again?

Keynes v. Hayek

Rapping economists have a rematch.

These two well studied economists did a bang up job in their presentation and these videos have gone viral. If only more educators took a non-traditional approach to teaching, we would not be in the pan of hot mess we are in as a nation now.

These two should be applauded for their presentations. It’s a wonder the media has not made this available to a wider audience.

Both videos are over on The Corner…
