Logic. The foundation of all Western Civilization, the basis of everything that has advanced us from the Caves. Spear/Atlatl/Bow+arrow - someone figures it out using Logic.

Take a look - guy throws spear farther, we are more safely away from dangerous beast (dinner) "How'd you do that?" "Uh, hooked this stick to the back then flung it like This!"

Worked, so they all started doing it, and Won.

We've been doing a lot of stuff lately that defies Logic. Logic always wins. You can ride it out for awhile, it sure makes you a lot of money and/or makes you look good in the short run, but Logical Nations and Logical Individual People play the long game.

Don't be Stupid. Nationally nor Individually.

Logically, it's time to hunker down and survive the storms.

This is no longer about Obama, he just shines the light of clarity on a Federal Beast that is on autopilot, drilling deeper into our lives, trying to regulate everything.
Obama just exposes the mess by his excessive use of the Beast…the Beast has been there for decades he has merely Unleashed it.
“Merely”. “Unleashed”.
Beware the Kraken!

Logic dicates.....prepare to defend against The Kraken!
If something the Feds do curtails or restrains Trucking, which operates on small margins, the cities starve and the economy collapses.
Food riots, etc. in 3-5 days in every major city. Which of course requires “emergency powers” for “the duration”.


Who's fighting this?

 The ultimate logic is the logic is to call it quits, and have some means to do so at hand. However, certain facts come to mind. They say the brain stays active for 3-4 minutes after blood-flow ceases. I really don't want to be conscious that long , fully aware that I'm already fucking dead. Logical?

So the only answer is complete smashing of the brain, so there's no way you stay conscious. Guns, bricks, pavement from altitude, completely smashed to pulp.

Politics Fall 2012

Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate.
Sun Tzu

Not logical, but forthcoming

Modern version, of course.

Sweating out Solutions

I've been sweating outdoors a lot in Texas and the South in general, and also reading a lot of "historical" fiction based in the South in the 1800s.

Many detailed depictions of the clothing they wore in that era, and the humidity. One top-notch author noted that the British considered 19th century service in Washington D.C. a "hardship post" because of the terrible climate, heat and humidity. Considering the formal clothing required, and the Brit's global expertise with tropical conditions, that's a pretty damning indictment of D.C.

But just think, in the 1800's a lot of positions were vehemently expressed, and acted upon, without endless spin and dissembling.

How much of that was the sweat pouring under woolen clothing? When's the last time you wore a wool suit in a non-air-conditioned building when the heat index outside is 110?

Maybe we should shut off the AC in the Capitol building, and watch the resultant action!!!

Logical? I think so. Make 'em work, instead of talk endless BS...
