disfuctionalunit

Well okay, I mean all right so hello again. Little Mouse was worried bout my blood pressure after reading the last post. She said she can always tell how my days gone by how many f bombs I drop in my posts. She keeps after me to be a kinder gentler unit but the weather outside just started turning nasty, God bless America, I think that means that we’re (or more precisely you re: my crankiness) are pretty much screwed until March.

Anyway it put me in kind of funk this morning right off the bat and I realized the last thing I wanna go do is blog some long diatriblical rant about any of my usual topics this.

Which left me of course with the dilemma of what I was going to write about…? I should just post one of the back-ups I have ready, I know I still…

The Earth Day Fairy

April 23, 2014

Well it’s Earth day…

I use to be really into it.

I never talk about it much but I love the outdoors, camping, and even more than simply camping I love orienteering.

Last years campsite in the Badlands

Last years campsite in the Badlands

I love nothin’ better than to wander into the wilderness and have done so on numerous occasions (and will again this summer at some point).

It all stems back to my homeless days when, since I was sleeping outdoors anyway,  I started doing so more n more in the local hills around O.C.; mostly Saddleback Mountain area (Holy Jim Trail, Lost Woman Canyon, some great names).

When you’re sleeping outdoors in the mountains they call it camping.

In the city it’s vagrancy.

Ah but anyway ya see I jes wanna make sure that you understand I really dig (n have since my early twenties) the outdoorsy, minimalist, green-ish lifestyle, before I go typing all the following.

N like usuaal I got nothin ‘gainst people tryin’ to live green or whatever, it’s jes the semantics that bother me, it’s jes the bullshit *logic* employed by the movement’s movers n shakers that’s all.
The same pseudo science propaganda phraseology I get to hear on a daily basis spouted by newscasters n neighbors, some well meaning folks n others flim flam huckster salesmen.
Earth-First-Logo

Entry level eco-freak.

Look, long ago when I was a card carryin’ member of Earth First, I bein the Unit that I am and never doin anything half way eventually started exploring the ideas of more extreme green-ies which of curse led me to the book the Monkey Wrench Gang and to other more…determined factions among Earth First members…

76998805374a71a762db5104e7b516e6

Goin hardcore.

I’m not claimin or sayin’ I ever did anything at all but…

Well ya see it’s like this, n I know, I know I talk about this a lot but that’s because all you b-tards with yer constant save the Earth baloney are drivin me to do so…you stop in I’ll stop I promise that’s a deal.
Annyway where the heck was I?
O yea it’s like this, every good n true ecologist knows that there is only one real problem, population growth rate. It doesn’t matter what elsewe do, in fact that’s not necessarily true but we’ll come back to that. That’s why scientists are working so hard fer GMO crops…

The dreaded GMO

The dreaded GMO

We will have issues with other resources but, jeez, look how much trouble the Governments have feeding their populations now.
But this isn’t some fact I somehow alone know. Many, maybe most educated people, know this by now. Certainly as I stated above, the movers n shakers, the powerhouses of the Green Movement know this to be true. More people, more problems.

Our eventual demise?

Our eventual demise?

So one of the key factors you realize, if you are serious about this green buisness, if ya wanna save the Earth, then it would be best to reduce the human population by a huge number of people.

That’s the only thing that is going to “save the planet”
Yet we are sold this idea anyway.
The other thing all of the above mentioned folk know fer sure is that we, meaning (wo)mankind ain’t going to destroy the earth, at the very worst we may make uninhabitable fer all living things (even this is highly doubtful) fer a millennia or so but, heck it’s the damn Earth, it’s been through a lot worse than we can dish out. The ol’ gal would be sure to bounce back.
Yet we are als0 sold this idea, that man is actually on the very brink of destroying the Earth.
They sell us the product though they know it is defective.
Okay now those of you who have read a few of my posts before may have already encountered this conundrum I am again going to try and raise but, yea anyway…
If you are trying to “save” the planet you are going about it wrong…unless yer a smoker…takin a big one fer the team, thanks smokers.

Doin there part to save the planet

Doin there part to save the planet!

If yer doing all that green stuff, yer really tryin to save humans, our way of life, our enjoyment of the world the way it is now (maybe even better fer awhile).
But the thing is, n here we get back to what I mentioned earlier, isn’t it true that the better we do at protecting ourselves and our environment the more of us there will be?
So when I said there is nothing we can do,  I meant only fer the positive, we can affect the Earth by continuing to live and grow as a species. And as I mentioned above unless we all stop procreatin that ain’t gonna happen anyway so…
Logically we can see that all the Green Movement is doing fer the Earth, at least in it’s form now, is prolonging the inevitable, which of course will make things worse not better.
And once again, the movin n shakin folks have to know this is true also…I mean if a little ol Unit like me can figure it out fer sure Al Gore can as well.
Making his "green" the old fashioned way, through intimidation, bullying and snake oil.

Making his “green” the old fashioned way, through intimidation, bullying and snake oil.

So then what is the point behind the whole charade, well of course it must be money, which gives a whole new meaning to the term “Green Movement”. (n here I mean separate from other agenda items like outlawing fossil fuels)

But if it’s only about sellin us all these new products what is the environmental impact of their creation, distribution, purchase etc?
Lol I could offer a few more hypothetical situational attacks on the hypocrisy of the whole thing but what’s the point, it’s not like I’m gonna derail the green train…
N I guess yer doin yer best with the info yer morning show gives ya, buyin those new light bulbs…that aren’t as good a light source, don’t last as long an…oh yea hilariously enough, are more dangerous fer the environment…Oh I mean…it is to do the proverbial laughing.

 

 

I know, I know,  you f-tarded bastards, yes I know I can be so mean, or seem like I’m being mean, or like I’m being racist, or…fill in yer negative stereotype.

Look all you cats n kitten I’m the Dysfunctional Unit fer a reason, that doesn’t excuse what I do, but it may explain why you may misunderstand what I am trying to say….

No, really, I think you (many of you) jes do that on purpose…

Here, as an example, is a poem I once wrote n performed occasionally in the coffee houses in the So Cal area…

I wrote this poem about a neighbor that’s why it’s called…

 

Why My Neighbor Kept a Dog

He kept a dog

‘Cause he wanted a woman

But the dog didn’t complain when he beat it

He didn’t have to give it money to go to the mall or to get it’s hair done

He didn’t have to listen to it complain about his lifestyle choices

And when he left the house

The dog followed three steps behind

Like he believed a good bitch should

And that’s why he kept a dog

I've heard it's best to start their traning early.

I’ve heard it’s best to start their training early.

 

Okay so whenever I read that poem I was invariably accosted by audience members fer being a sexist….fer suggesting women should be beaten…wha…wha…what ?!?

It was about my nieghbor!

It was one of my first experiences with pc’run a’mokness

So like, when I wrote the post re:Putin n Obama I of course never realized that readers would think I was racist.

I did portray Putin as a arrogant dangerous racist, Obama as an arrogant child/man (and somewhat racist)…(as to the pictures n size of text hopefully that’s fixed-ish)…

But again, me bein a racist, meaning I personally am judging people solely by their skin color.

Sorry not my thing.

I look at what people do and how they behave, what they say and write, and the differences between the two.

Obama in a sea of white 4

Good Racism in action.

Ex: Like white American suburban liberals who were happy to vote for Obama to show that America had moved beyond all that, to prove we were no longer a racist nation, or certainly they themselves were no longer racists.

I have news fer ya, hate to break it to ya…but if you voted fer President  Obama because he was black yer a racist.

You acted based solely on the color of his skin.

Racism. Yea you say, “but it was good racism.

Oh wait, I know, I know ya support his policies n pogroms…whoops Freudian…programs.

Name one…

Health Care, Lowell,  hows that been workin’ out fer ya?

How ’bout the economy?

How ’bout how much it suddenly costs to buy groceries, fill the tank…oh and so on.

I know, I know many of you didn’t really read up on Mr. Obama prior to votin fer him, ya jes listened to the TV news…well really the news is pretty boring, but ya did n do watch John Stewart and Jimmy Fallon.

Late Nite Laughs!

Late Nite Laughs!

Anyway if ya did any homework at all there was plenty to suggest to find. Mr. Obama was not shy about his views regarding America’s wealth n privilage (meaning white America) and told us all ahead of time he believed some of these things needed to happen.

That is because then student and then Senator Obama fully believed two important principles (along with many others, even on the so called conservative side).

1 That white Euro-American success and power came at the expense of the third world nations and peoples, and the field should be leveled utilizing western resources to fuel a resurgence in wealth and transferring of resources  back to the “victim” nations.

2 Big Government can & should be the tool used to level the playing field between rich and poor (peoples and nations both).

Well okay that’s a whole ‘nother can of beans as they say.

Annnyway…

No matter what you think, I don’t like our President because I don’t agree with what he professes to believe in.

Don’t like his tendency to support the idea that the Government is a balm to soothe all societies ills…

I don’t think he really believes that it can.

He does wants us to believe it can.

I used to believe those things, used to be a super lefty, think  I made that clear enough…

I jes don’t anymore based on all available evidence and data.

Government  isn’t there to be the Big Mommy n Daddy of us all, nor is it here to be the arbiter of healthy living, nor make people like each other…

Thanks Mommy!

Thanks Mommy!

Not only is in not supposed to be doing these things, it can’t.

No matter how much it promises, no matter how much it takes from one group to give to another, no matter how much it obfuscates and finger points (both damn sides) the (fed) Gov cannot right the wrongs of the past.

It cannot guarantee safety n happiness fer all.

Cannot guarantee fairness…and should be ashamed fer leading people to think it can.

One the few things that the Federal Government is suppose to do…A#1, top o my list anyway, is to protect our country from people, organizations, or other countries that mean to do harm to the ol’ US of A.

Harm not jes to our people, our land or things, but our interests as well, the economic interests of the citizens, of our pretty “good” country…

This is why I switched parties in the 2000. Other logic added into it but this was the key factor.

One of the politial parties was fer American interest, and one was fer the worlds.

Jes some other breaking news fer ya, people in other parts of the world covet what Americans have.

They believe as our President does(see above…)and as so many liberal University/College Professors have been teaching fer years now (that’s why so many good hard working kind n thoughtfully green citizens of America also believe this and support the idea*)that our Country’s dominance is due solely to nefarious criminal activities on America’s part and not due to the hard work and sacrifice of generations of it’s people.

Tenured Professor Bilde,        U of AH

So, many people in other countries, as well as a lot of people in this one, feel that the taking of what America has & what Americans have achieved would be more akin to a comeuppance than theft…

And jes a question fer those supporters of this philosophy, what did you think this balancing was going to feel like?*

The dollar losing it’s buying power…how is that goin fer ya?

And as to the various parts of the third world gaining world “player”status ain’t never gonna happen …in yer dreams.

I mean really. did that sound like it was gonna work.

The 3rd world is gonna stay overwhelmingly poor.

Some other powerful country will fill the vacuum when we abandon the post…n I doubt it will be Russia, seriously, though Putin’s makin his move early fer his sizable chunk of the “2nd” world.

If I was layin’ money I’d say China has better odds.

And with America n Americans out of the picture who’s gonna give a flyin f about the 3rd world then…

Of course I’m way off topic…’cause the point is all this…this cultural shifting and it’s full o’ the ol’ crap-ola cheerleaders are laughable at best and the fact that I find myself being the voice of patriotic reason hilarious.

So my posts are always funny to me and wait…what?

Yea full of crap you heard me!

What happens when the fad dies n black goes back to bein the new black?

What happens when the fad dies n black goes back to bein the new black?

I…look if you go around callin’ yerself Green ’cause ya think about the environment a lot and vote democrat, and maybe ya’  changed all the lite bulbs (ha! go look up the new lite bulb fer yerself) in yer four bedroom house…

What’s the real gas mileage on yer new eco-friendly SUV (or compact fer that matter)?

Okay you support alternative energies, how much do you utilize during yer average day to help accomplish yer average day?

Recycling: The Green Movement's Indulgences

Recycling: The Green Movement’s Indulgences.

Oh n of course recyclin, recyclin and buyin, buyin n recyclin…Lowell, we certainly ain’t slowin down in our consumer tendencies…

E-garbage, the new future's dirty little secret.

E-garbage, the tech livin future’s dirty little secret.

How many new, unrecyclable, untrashable, electronic gadgets have you n yer family bought in the past year?

How many have you thrown away?

How much is in yer garage? Can ya still fit the new Wrangler in there?

How many closets do you have that could rival Fibber McGee’s?

Do I have to ask more rhetorical questions?

sun chips

Proof of American consumer’s rhetorical commitments n fickle fads finicky foibles.

Not too long ago one of my favorite brand of chips came out with a new bio-degradable bag…the new bag was quickly scrapped and they were forced to return to the old fashioned ungreen bags.

What was the problem, the big consumer complaint you may wonder?

The bags were noisier. That was it…it bothered consumers that the bags made more noise, and these are the “healthy/green crowd” chips.

Oh…oh…I’m sorry! Oh…hold on!..Oh it is to laugh.

I tell ya what if yer living on a self sustaining farm in a remote part of the country you can talk to me about being green.

Otherwise yer full o the ol’ crap-ola.

Crowning themselves Champion

Winner & Still Champeen!

If you go around sayin it’s a proven fact that women can take more pain than men yer full o the ol crap-ola…

I’m not sayin they can’t, or that they can…

I’m sayin it hasn’t been scientifically proven despite all the news reports that feature studies that say they have “possibly maybe” done just that.

Science is evolving.

Science is evolving.

Even, dare I say it…evolution is only a theory…that’s why it’s called the theory of evolution.

I’m not sayin we didn’t evolve. Hear (or read anyway) what I’m sayin…(though I do believe of course in a mix of both science n God)…

I’m jes sayin ya can’t go around sayin evolution’s a proven fact & there is no God and that people who believe, have faith in a God are stupid, then also talk about human beings innate goodness and talking about karma…wellll…I guess you can but…

I’m sayin if yer claimin to be somethin be it.

If ya say yer tolerant of all view points, ya’ can’t be a pussy when ya hear one ya’ don’t like, other wise yer full of…okay you get it…

Now look how long it’s taken jes to get through that b.s.

But see again I find it hilarious to openly challenge so many and have none willing to respond…that’s funny isn’t it?

I know there are a lot of liberals on WP.

Are you a white middle upper middle income American with a family, house, kids, possibly in college, who having voted fer Obama, views themselves as a good n green modern American liberal with health care n justice fer all (the oppressed)?

I chuckle in the face of yer hypocrisy and l & the fab o l brothers at yer lack of ba…

…sic support of yer own arguments…

And again that’s funny, at least to this Unit.

 

Do ya know what that is?

It’s the sound of the crickets chirping after I asked any…any body to defend Obamacare…How about one of your friends? C’mon someone out there in wordpress land must know some one who knows someone who at least supports the idea of this idea?

I mean, okay, so I got more likes for my last post than any other, but after visiting some of these sites I am often stunned and wonder what was it about what I wrote that these individuals “liked”. Reading what they and their “followers” are saying I just can’t understand why they aren’t searching for the “hate” button…or

I have possibly a new theory, perhaps if you are following some fifty plus blogs it becomes quite a chore to actually read every post ( I know, I am following (seriously) about ten or so and am always a page (or more lol)behind in my emails, and it does become tempting somedays to just click “like” without actually reading…but ya know what? I like reading these blogs, (and commenting, hopefully not to the host’s annoyance[aww jesus here’s that dysu again lol])and only one of them is written by another cantankerous old curmudgeon bitchin’ ’bout how we’ve lost our way as a country. And though we are obviously very different we share this one thing in common…

Here is an example of fun facts that John has dug up…

  • City officials in San Francisco are seeking to make ex-convicts a “protected class,” joining blacks, Hispanics, homosexuals, the disabled and transgendered, and pregnant women. Ex-cons already have the special status when applying for city government jobs, but a council of top city officials wants to extend the protection to make it illegal for landlords and private employers to ask about a person’s criminal record.

I mean…umm…lololol…jumped up Jesus on a pogo stick…I mean…really? Really?

  • The state of Nevada last year denied a request for a vanity license plate that said “GOPALIN” because, in the view of the Department of Motor Vehicles, such a plate was “vulgar or obscene or expressing superiority of political affiliation.” That policy didn’t stop the agency from issuing personalized plates that said “AL GORE,” “GO OBAMA,” “GOGREEN,” “DMOCRAT,” and “KERRY.”

Another fine example of free speech and tolerance in action

  • The Omaha, Neb., public school district spent $130,000 in federal stimulus money to buy manuals to instruct teachers and school administrators on how to be culturally sensitive. The book, The Cultural Proficiency Journey: Moving Beyond Ethical Barriers Toward Profound School Change, says that teachers need to work for social justice in order to overcome a white-privileged society. The book says racism, sexism, homophobia and ableism are forces of oppression in schools, and that institutions in America “channel wealth and power to white people.”

    Doin my homework!

This is the killer one…this has been the silent killer of America, the NEA, I know, I know sounds paranoid…okay they have been one of New America’s best propagandists…still you think that’s over the top? Consider that not only have public schools, since the late sixties (remember blue eyed/brown eyed experiment) have been teaching (white) America(boys) how evil it(they) has been(are), it has also managed to figure out how to instill a sense of self esteem and entitlement to a generation of kids who are completely incapable of the type of accomplishment such self esteem would normally spring from…

Wait what you don’t understand the last half of that sentence, okay go back and read it again I will wait…

(Click me To Continue)

Well okay, I mean all right so hello again. Little Mouse was worried bout my blood pressure after reading the last post. She said she can always tell how my days gone by how many f bombs I drop in my posts. She keeps after me to be a kinder gentler unit but the weather outside just started turning nasty, God bless America, I think that means that we’re (or more precisely you re: my crankiness) are pretty much screwed until March.

Anyway it put me in kind of funk this morning right off the bat and I realized the last thing I wanna go do is blog some long diatriblical rant about any of my usual topics this.

Which left me of course with the dilemma of what I was going to write about…? I should just post one of the back-ups I have ready, I know I still have to continue the Declaration of Dysfunction with Articles #2-#5 but…(well maybe I’ll post #2 later tonight) I kind’a wanted to do something fun.

See the things is I know I believe I am right, but you have to believe that I know that doesn’t mean I’m right.

Did ya follow that sentence? See I also know I am dysfunctional, so though I believe I am right about what I write about, I may just as easily…well…be wrong…see? Ya get it?

My main goal here is to discuss those things that are (that we accept as a society) our new truths (oh and even some old ones what the hell) that make my little dog chase it’s tail round and round.

Like say, the environmental or “green” movement. At it’s foundations the theories and ideology are hard to argue with. On the surface, if you don’t think too deeply about any of their claims the movement seems sound and genuine.

Until the little dog starts twirling. And here is why.

The statement goes like this: Because human beings have been, through their behaviors such as over use of resources,  disregard of chemical refuse, etc, extremely harmful to the planet and all life on it.

The environmental movement wants to help guide people gently (or through out lying and force…oh wait that’s my words  not theirs) to learn to modify said behaviors toward a more people/planet harmonious lifestyle there by assuring the planets continued existence.

If we don’t modify, we are told, the earth is doomed.

Have I got that right?  I wanna make sure. If I have spoken (typed) somewhere in error please some one correct me.

But I do believe that I have it pretty spot on, remember I use to be a “real” environmentalist myself…or was I?

Once in awhile, when a dog chases it’s tail long enough it catches it and here’s what happened when mine caught it’s tail.

I realized I wasn’t, that we (most in the movement) weren’t environmentalists at all but humanists.

The Earth is going to be fine and it is the height of arrogance to suggest that we, meaning humans could destroy it.

So the truth is then that we want to take care of the planet so that people continue to survive. (the theory that the entire human race would become extinct is also highly suspect).

That makes me a humanists.

Now if I’m a true environmentalist, a green guy for the planet then really I should be encouraging people, companies, countries to continue pollute. Bring on the fossil fuels and lets start clear cuttin’ some forests baby.

Then the earth will solve it’s own problems by wiping most of humanity out in some grand balancing act.

See okay well maybe I’m wrong like I said above, I’m no scientist or professor lol, but I think I can say that we, as a race will be hard pressed to destory this planet; this f-ing giant ball of rock floating in space.

At best we may put ‘er on her heals for awhile but the big ol’ girl would bounce back bigger and better than ever.

Can you tell me that I’m wrong…I mean really comment or e me if you think I’ve missed it.

But before you do and say something like…”So what if environmentalists want us to be good to the earth for people, that sounds like a good idea”. You’ve missed the point, I don’t care, I just don’t want you to call yourselves environmentalists, or “green” any more.. Call yourself what you are, that’s all I’m saying, call yourself a humanist and be proud of it.

I have this exact problem with many Christians today, oh and speaking of…

Jesus I’m already way over my word per post limit (self imposed, though there must be eventually some digital limit lol), and I know I said I would only talk about God related stuff on Sunday but I mean I’m on a roll and these questions end up being kind’a related, at least to my little dog.
