The Sheer Stupidity of America is Staggering

I’d have more luck reaching Helen Keller

Or anyone with an inkling of desire to understand something that doesn’t cater to your cravings. A grade-schooler would grasp my arguments with ease, as they haven’t yet learned to look away from the obvious.

The blankness it must take to see something like this and keep right on scrolling. I can’t imagine a life of so little thirst for fresh thinking that demands something of your mind.

Funny thing about information

It can seem incoherent when you don’t take any of it into account.

You breeze on by what you don’t instantly understand — then cry foul that you can’t correlate how one thing connects with another. That you don’t have the discipline it takes to be challenged and learn is not a flaw in my argument — it’s a flaw in you:

For being devoid of desire to understand anything that isn’t self-evident in 60 seconds.

On a matter of world-altering consequence — hermetically sealed minds make it impossible to establish even this much:

And those who recognize that — have no qualms about denying this . . .

We must agree that it was watermelon and consider what it means: Maybe nothing, maybe everything. But you pollute the debate when you won’t even acknowledge the irrefutable.

Worse than that — you poison your purpose . . .

On that front — and this one

And I’m in the middle of the madness

The one who calls a spade a spade — and whether it’s in my interests or not is irrelevant.

Button your lip and don’t let the shield slip
Take a fresh grip on your bulletproof mask
And if they try to break down your disguise with their questions
You can hide hide hide behind Paranoid Eyes

The rotor speed required to separate uranium isotopes doesn’t care who’s president.

In order to maintain such speeds, the material properties of centrifuges are as critical as it gets. You don’t need to interview a world-renowned nuclear scientist to figure that out — but I like to be thorough:

You — like to be entertained

And now information is so funneled in a fashion to your liking — you don’t even know what to do with anything that isn’t. It astounds me that wading through unfamiliar territory on this site is somehow seen as complicated as quantum physics.

I assure you . . .

What it took to acquire this information was infinitely more demanding than anything you face here — let alone the complexities in exposing systematic deception at the core of our country’s ills.

You make it impossible to put a pinprick through the envelope of intransigence encasing your brain — then have the bottomless nerve to deride my “disjointed” website . . .

Which only exists because you never take 5 seconds to . . .

We are living through an epidemic of cowardice. The antidote is courage. . . .

Courage means, first off, the unqualified rejection of lies. Do not speak untruths, either about yourself or anyone else, no matter the comfort offered by the mob. And do not genially accept the lies told to you. If possible, be vocal in rejecting claims you know to be false. Courage can be contagious, and your example may serve as a means of transmission.

— Bari Weiss: Some Thoughts About Courage

Why have things come so undone? And what can we do to rebuild them?

I have an answer

But she’s not gonna like it — no one will! And it’s about time we stop loving things that are so damn easy . . .

There are countless people saying the same things in the same old ways — with channels, sites, and substacks that conform to the formula.

No offense to the fine work that many people provide on those platforms: But I find those environments unimaginative, unfulfilling, and of questionable efficacy.

Not to mention this:

But we’re all here because we share some important things in common: a commitment to reason, curiosity, independence, decency, and a hunger for honest conversation. In our upside-down world, holding fast to these ideals can sometimes feel lonely.

More than ever, we crave the company of people who share our core values.

— Bari Weiss: Welcome to Year Two

It’s a nice gesture to bond with her audience.

Unfortunately, it’s not true:

In any audience

I don’t fit the formula

I’m interested in solving problems — not endlessly talking about them.

And what people crave is the company of those who see themselves as they do (never mind their record doesn’t remotely reflect their claims).

But it doesn’t matter — as they’re reinforced by the fantasy that they’re all part of some revolution in reason: Led by “National Treasures” they see as some of the greatest minds to ever live.

Cancel culture refers to ending (or attempting to end) an individual’s career or prominence to hold them to account for immoral behavior. Driven primarily by young progressives, often through social media, cancel culture has attracted controversy since it swept into the national conversation.

— Rob Henderson

That these kiss-ass communities find that profound:

No wonder I can’t make a dent in a culture so easily satisied in systematic self-delusion.

You drop by for a few jabs

Then run along — because you don’t have the guts to get in the ring and put your money where your mouth is.

It’s all playtime to you — and you’ve got friends . . .

You skim my site and instantly issue your “where’s your facts?” refrain of an automaton. If you don’t wanna watch my documentary that’s chock-full of facts on this fiasco for the ages, that’s your prerogative.

But don’t bitch about what you don’t see when you refuse to look.

I do all the work, you do nothing and consider nothing — then blame me for failing to convince you?

But you’re busy

Looking up to the liars you love — who dumb it down into Happy Meal morsels to munch on: Soothing you into submission while they put a wrench to your brain to remove it from the equation.

Even if there were valid arguments buried in all the incoherent rambling, no one would be able to find them.

Glaringly obvious evidence of mathematical certainty — within 2 minutes into the first page . . .

Is what you call “buried“?

“It’s your title — that’s the problem”:

Not the events that led to this cesspool of certitude America has become.

That takes time & effort to digest: Why bother doing that when you can just blame the person who takes you to task for the endless bullshit you’re willing to believe.

Poisoning the waters of possibility with pride . . .

The Right delights in ridiculing the Left for burning buildings to further the cause. Yet they went batshit crazy after 9/11: Setting the world ablaze — and browbeating anybody out of line in their March of Folly.

Of all those in that crowd I’ve challenged on WMD — their knowledge combined could fit into a thimble with space to spare.

You want the Left and the black community to get its act together on matters deeply woven into the fabric of America’s long history of brutality and disgrace:

Slavery, Jim Crow, lynchings, murder, decades of civil rights violations, questionable shootings, and so on . . .

While you won’t even look at the material properties of a tube. What’s wrong with that picture — and this one?

Hmm, so the dimensions exactly match the tubes used in Iraq’s history of manufacturing the Nasser-81mm artillery rocket (a reverse-engineered version of the Italian Medusa)

Be quite a coincidence if they weren’t . . .

Ya know, connected

Oh my god

He used an unrelated movie to make a point and tossed in some comedy for effect. What does that say about that quality of his argument?

It says you need to get your head out of your ass — and stop flailing about like an idiot incabable of understanding anything.

But the Right is not always wrong

And the smart move is to agree with them when they’re making sense. It’s also the right thing to do. The right thing tends to be the demanding thing — the difficult that can’t be captured in slogans, kneeling, and knocking down monuments.

The entire country’s full of shit . . .

You don’t listen and you never learn

You have no original ideas and have no questions for those who do. I have to spoon-feed you like a child while you spit it out and cry about being hungry. You have no imagination and are utterly devoid of any virtue that would allow for actual conversation to take place:

Not that lickety-split, self-satisfied crap you flood the internet with daily — slinging snippets of certitude as a pastime.

America fucked up the future of the entire world on issues in This Does Not Equal That — and the best you’ve got is finding formatting “flaws” so you can peddle your pearls on wisdom?

There’s a name for your kind and it’s called . . .

The Critic

On the biggest and most costly lie in modern history, I threw down the gauntlet: Taking both parties to task in what undoubtedly ranks with the most detailed documentaries ever done on any subject.

And you tap a Tweet with a talking point or two — thinking you can inform me. Not long before this Tweet — this guy was condemning my efforts like all the rest that day.

And then he opened the doc

That’s the exception

Allowing emotion to run roughshod over reason is the rule.

I put it all on a silver platter, but you won’t consider 160 seconds, let alone 160 minutes. You think I wanted to chop up my doc into clips to accommodate your attention span? But still that wasn’t enough, as you won’t even watch those — but have the bottomless nerve to bitch about what you don’t understand.

I illustrate the childish behavior I’ve faced for decades — practically spit on for following principles you only promote. And you whine about that too.

I don’t understand the satisfaction in taking endless delight in embracing slogans and simpleminded narratives — designed to make damn sure you don’t look beyond the surface . . .

While mocking my “juvenile” visuals for illustrating timeless truths and anything that might make a hairline crack in your hermetically sealed minds.

It is hard to fill a cup which is already full

You celebrate & assail the same shit every goddamn day — congratulating yourselves by copying & pasting principles you promote but only follow when it serves you.

Following facts going the direction you desire — doesn’t count.

Anybody can do that

The notion that it’s my fault you can’t find your way to the truth through my maze of a website — is preposterous, particularly because you have a choice:

The documentary is structured to the hilt — so it’s much easier to digest.

Why would I repeat that approach — when I’m dealing with your obstinate refusal to watch it in the first place?

There’s a mutual responsibility in communication — and that “deal” is to hold up your end of the bargain (and it’s in your interests to do so). After all, you want others to consider your concerns — shouldn’t you do the same?

Wouldn’t some good ol’ give-and-take be refreshing for a change?

Never mistake activity for achievement

— John Wooden

Why burden yourself with timeless truths when you can worship people who’d repeatedly rehash the same topics till the end of time before they’d question the efficacy of their efforts.

They’re not solving problems — they’re serving a market, and you’re nothing but easily satisfied customers.

So when you come across something that doesn’t fit the formula — you delight in your derision as you hide behind your force field of fallacy. You shoot your mouth off from afar — without an atom of courage to engage in debate. Then you have the nerve to want respect as you show none.

Like many alternatives, however, it was psychologically impossible. Character is fate, as the Greeks believed. Germans were schooled in winning objectives by force, unschooled in adjustment. They could not bring themselves to forgo aggrandizement even at the risk of defeat.

— Barbara Tuchman

Unschooled in Adjustment

Nowhere else would you find ideas framed in such original ways, but in the Crap is King culture we’ve created:

Infantile insults are celebrated

The doubt-free who don’t do their homework are the experts. Those who belittle and/or outright reject correction — are the righteous and wise.

The ones with courage to admit when they’re wrong — are the weak. Tireless dedication is mercilessly mocked — while intellectual laziness is esteemed.

Original thinking and uniqueness are bashed — while conforming to the trite is trumpeted. Depth is discarded with disdain — while shallowness is embraced with love.

The honest & sincere are shunned — while manipulators & liars are welcomed with open arms.

This is my story — and if you read it in full, you’ll find it’s part of your story too. You’ve all dealt with the same behavior I have — the difference is that I get it from every direction.

Or Not . . .

Snowflake, Libtard, Libturd, Cupcake, Bush hater, Bush basher, Bush Derangement Syndrome, TDS, Demon-crat, Democrat Party

Stirring Defense

But this crowd takes the cake . . .

Apologists who worship the word of professional know-it-alls who avoid detail like Black Death.

  • Repeat slogans: “Everybody believed Iraq had WMD”
  • Question people’s motives: Bush hater, Bush basher, Bush Derangement Syndrome, Plamegate & plenty more. Adding to the arsenal of childish crap to continue the tradition: Snowflake, Libtard, Libturd, Cupcake, TDS, Demon-crat, Democrat Party
  • Bold assertions: Russians said so, British said so, Bill Clinton said so, Leaders of both parties said so . . .

No coherent argument, Repeat slogans, Vent their emotions, Question people’s motives, Bold assertions . . .

On a matter involving war in the Middle East in a post 9/11 world — the stakes don’t get much higher. For a “Maverick” who’s worshipped for “following the facts” — wouldn’t he take the trail to where they matter most?

As in the marquee evidence used to manufacture this fraud?

I did — Sowell didn’t

I almost miss the good ol’ days of garden-variety Bush apologists — when at least their contempt for the truth was in the theatre of war.

Bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

— Blurb to On Bullshit by Harry G. Frankfurt

Sowell’s disciples are a whole other breed of bullshitters who butcher reality — while incessantly bitching about others doing the same.

This crowd . . .

Trillion Dollar Tube

That excerpt alone is plenty to put this lie in its place . . .

In all of 5 minutes

5 minutes of your life to open your eyes to lies you’ve spent decades spreading.

Sowell’s cogent & sober arguments . . .

regurgitated garbage

Thomas Sowell is considered our country’s leading living intellectual, with ground-breaking contributions to economics, psychology, history, political science and sociology.

So lemme get this straight

A layperson with limited resources and no connections:

  • Can do countless hours of research & writing
  • Interview a world-renowned nuclear scientist
  • Correspond with Colin Powell’s chief of intelligence — along with a key physicist
  • Spend $15,000 of his own money to write & produce the most detailed documentary ever done on WMD (taking both parties to task for it)

Qualifying me to exhaustively explain how half the country could not be more wrong on this issue of world-altering consequence.

And in response: I’m practically spit on for abiding by the very priciples you peddle: By people who couldn’t craft a sound argument on the subject to save their lives.

But it’s all good that Sowell cranked out this crap that any Iraq War cheerleading jackass could issue in chain-letter lies — topped off with smug sloganeering.

After all — he doesn’t have any expertise on it.

He’s real slick with the quotes, ain’t he — and his acolytes just eat that shit up (never mind the glaringly obvious gaps in his record of flagrantly failing to live up to those precious ideas).

Speaking of which

As a distinguished scholar once said: “The first thing a man will do for his ideals is lie.”

— Thomas Sowell: Desperate and Ugly in Florida

Which option below would you choose if you wanted to understand a fairly complex programming concept? For me, it’s whatever it takes to get me where I wanna go.

I wish I were smart enough to read the JavaScript language spec and pick it up all on my own. Then again, I love the demands of difficulty and overcoming obstacles in a journey.

But I can’t do it alone

I need the help of amazing minds from my multitude of sources that increasingly grows the more I learn and advance my skills.

When I returned to this topic last weekend, I almost got it in the first video. In the face of such phenomenal work (or any sincere effort, for that matter): It would be unthinkable for me to blame the source because I have to work a little harder.

I was equally impressed by the 2nd video. He furthered my grasp on my question — and enhanced my overall understanding to boot. And the icing on the cake: He taught with this magical tool I had never heard of before.

This — is pure gold

3rd and 4th tries

Found that amazing graphic and a guy that ranks with the best I’ve ever seen in any discipline.

My gap paved the way to pay dirt — but only because I kept digging. Now I’m totally tapped into the internals, and I’ve got new tools to advance my knowledge on that front and many more.

The answer was there all along — I just needed to train my mind to see it.

Works the same way here . . .

Einstein borrowed from the one below:

The worth of man lies not in the truth which he possesses, or believes that he possesses, but in the honest endeavor which he puts forth to secure that truth; for not by the possession of, but by the search after, truth, are his powers enlarged, wherein, alone, consists his ever-increasing perfection. Possession fosters content, indolence, and pride.

— Gotthold Ephraim Lessing

Are you telling me that you can’t comprehend Call Sign “Maverick” but I can comprehend the Call Stack? There are coders who could blow me out of the water with knowledge I’ll never know: With the Call Stack being child’s play to them.

And yet, Sowell’s misdeeds would escape some of them too. How could that be?

And why not . . .

Try this on for size

How could that be?

And why wouldn’t you burden yourself by asking even a single question? Because you don’t wanna know the truth. Anyone who wanted to see — would not behave in ways that make sure damn sure they never will.

And this is one of the ways you pull it off with ease . . .

Could you just stop kissing Sowell’s ass long enough to follow the principles you put him on a pedestal for? Anyone worth this ridiculous hero-worship — wouldn’t want it, as they’d have a helluva lot higher expectations of their supporters.

Unlike almost all of America, I’m consistent on my principles. That — is what makes them principles:

America has gone totally off the rails in its worship of the wildly [unworthy] — and that includes the so-called Rock Star running the show right now.

— Richard W. Memmer: Epilogue

For telling the undeniable truth for nearly 20 years — I’ve been practically spit on for my efforts. But through it all, I came up with an idea — and it’s got teeth.

As we live in a culture that wallows in the delight of “DESTROY”:

It would never enter your minds that there’s a higher purpose in play here . . .

The ultimate irony is that your blind loyalty limits him — while my criticism could elevate him to heights your hero-worship ensures he’ll never go.

Believe it or not, my aim is to make Thomas Sowell the catalyst who could turn the tide. But in order to do that, I gotta take him to task for his reprehensible record on Iraq WMD.

Don’t shake your head. I’m not done yet. Wait till you hear the whole thing so you can . . . understand this now . . .

With just a little inquiry and an ounce of decency — you could gain some insight into why my material is arranged in ways you’ve never seen. And when you’re seeing it for the first time — you’re unaware of the endless efforts to reach your kin who came before you:

It is as though with some people — those who most avidly embrace the “we are right” view — have minds that are closed from the very get-go, and they are entirely incapable of opening them, even just a crack.

There is no curiosity in them. There are no questions in their minds. There are no “what ifs?” or “maybes.”

— Laura Knight-Jadczyk

So spare me your cries that my site is at fault for your failure to find the truth. I’ve heard it all and I’ve seen it all — as your kind always has an excuse laced with self-satisfied scorn.

You skim my site and instantly issue your “where’s your facts?” refrain of an automaton. If you don’t wanna watch my documentary that’s chock-full of facts on this fiasco for the ages, that’s your prerogative.

But don’t bitch about what you don’t see when you refuse to look.

In their collective state, the Borg are utterly without mercy; driven by one will alone: the will to conquer. They are beyond redemption, beyond reason.

— Jean-Luc Picard

In a country more concerned with criticizing websites than people who lied this nation into war: You think reaching hermetically sealed minds is just a matter of following a formula?

For people who can’t comprehend the complexities in explaining interrelated stories of America’s decline over decades of delight in the Gutter Games of Government:

You would think that!

Ah, the pooh-poohers of possibility: Forever on the front lines of lowering the bar while I’m trying to raise it — you’ve been a constant companion almost all my life.

Where would I be without you?

It’s as apples & oranges as it gets to compare my efforts against the accepted standard of social media norms. However difficult your task, you’re not taking on the entire nation.

As I wrote on Without Passion or Prejudice in reference to the opening image:

Half the country is with me on this — and I just lost the other half. Had I started with the image below — it would be the opposite half.

You don’t really need to find out what’s goin’ on
You don’t really wanna know just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry . . .

We can do “The Innuendo,” we can dance and sing
When it’s said and done, we haven’t told you a thing
We all know that crap is king

By just recognizing that the challenges I face are different than the standard fare in America — you might find some appreciation of what I’m up against.

When taking on all of America — you can’t just lay it all out in a linear fashion. I faced this same problem in structuring my documentary and even in the naming of it . . .

What’s with the different names of your doc?

What’s with your mindset that necessitates massaging it with harmonious headlines? How do you convey fair-mindedness in a culture that instantly supports or scorns on lickety–split perception alone?

Alas, I have to factor for this “having said that” culture we’ve created — where you’ve gotta pamper your audience to pave the way for what you really wanna say.

Utterly ridiculous

And after you’ve soothed their minds with some degree of shared scrutiny — that goodwill goes right out the window the moment you mention anything that challenges their calcified convictions.

Sowell is a great man because of his books. I stand by that. you want to refute his books — go ahead. I’m listening.

— Glenn Loury

Oh, I see — you wanna confine his record to a box of beliefs that suit you, and ignore anything that doesn’t. So the rules of argument you espouse on a daily basis don’t apply to you . . .

A lot of that goin’ around

Sowell sold out to sell those books you stand by.

Why not — it’s the American Way, and so’s this:

Rack up attention, rake in rewards, accomplish nothing, make matters worse, and be hailed as a hero — another “brilliant” mind beloved as a “National Treasure.”

It’s all so goddamn cheap anymore . . .

There is no market for what I do

But there wasn’t one for PCs at one time either.

We could revolutionize the world too — just by using the tools we were given from the get-go:

That’s that lump that’s three feet above your ass!
