Is the Juice Worth the Squeeze?
The odd part about this blog post is it started off as a way for me to brainstorm a proper and well-deserved and well-meant apology to my wife for my (in)actions. It continues below, don’t laugh too hard. This is how at least one male brain actually functions.
As some of you who read this may know, I am doing more than just posting and writing about Liberty based upon my life experiences and the influences of others, some good, some not so good, and others just poisonous. Those conditions apply to both experiences and the people, however, a lesson must be learned at every increased level of un-comfortableness, both mentally and physically. Seems like the older I get the more the mental gym played in years passed for hours, days, and months at a time have a way of displaying themselves in our civil society. So I have started attending my City Council meetings and begun to speak my mind, since it is only 2 miles down the road they are forced to hear me, I didn’t say listen.
Classifying words into groups that have similar meanings into categories that further classify, in a flow chart like way, whether a defensive or offensive posture is required. Along with a proper adequate response, I stress the word proper prior to adequate, it’s a pitfall. What is proper and what is adequate? Those are the answers being supplied by unelected political appointees and career constitution defending individuals in your stead, based upon facts that you are not worthy or privileged to see.
All the while we are being presented with ASSESSMENTS, these are professional SWAGS Scientific Wild Ass Guess’S with the undo burden of attempting to balance keeping a job and current policy, which has been used to drive the economy, that continues to enslave us all with an ever growing undo tax burden on ourselves, our children, grand children, and future LEGAL IMMIGRANTS, eventually we will compromise on this All Men Are Created Equal thing again. Can you fathom how low we must go to include all residents of this country in order to properly allocate the confiscated value of others? I get it, it is taking from those who have and giving to a nameless face that is no longer in debt to, nor the property of another. History repeats itself I swear, some stories are just repeated more frequently than others, since they don’t play too well.
Cliff Notes version of above:

Government trained in conflict resolution through military service, other government agencies that are paid in the imperfect science of fortune telling to a punctilious degree are providing documents that are being accepted as fact by a MSM, done in an effort to sustain an economy that will happily send some of our finest citizens to their deaths or cripple them for the rest of their lives because they truly believe and have invested themselves fully in defending and sustaining its Constitutional principles in the defense of Liberty? Historically in our country that is as diverse as any nation in the history of the world. When injustice or the perception of injustice occurs repeatedly in a geographical area insurrection occurs followed by violence usually applied by those quelling the insurgency or providing safety for commerce and therefore taxation to occur. Common references would be, Boston Tea Party, Revolutionary War, Whiskey Rebellion, Civil War, Prohibition, Repeal of Prohibition, WWI, WWII, War on Poverty, War on Drugs, War on Speech, the War on Religion, and the Current War on Terror, that unidentifiable threat, that looms over and around every corner and shadow in each of our home towns. Talk about instilling fear to the point you don’t want to trust your neighbor just because they are different than you. I am from the government and am here to help are words no one should here without truly having their Liberties being threated or being in extremis.
The last point regarding people and value, brings me to the longest of stretches I have made at any point so far. The common undertone to each of these events is this. In War one group is considered to be of less value than something other than the life of the conqueror. Which, if you purchase the government provided life insurance it plainly states that your life is worth 400,000 if the premium is paid on time through the direct confiscation of pay provided by the “valuers” of lives. The point being here is that you can put a price on it, if you choose to I would call that a stall tactic lesson learned from history.
French and Indian War- Land was valued more than the Liberties of neighbors (French) Insurgency quelled. Insurgents relocated to Canada and New Orleans
Boston Tea Party and Boston Massacre- Liberty of choice over being dictated to and dictated over by a hereditary empowered Tyrannical King. Insurgency Indicators
Revolutionary War- Americans valued their Liberties more than the British valued the lives of their Colonists. Insurgency achieved and successful war was waged.
Whiskey Rebellion- Liberty of property valued less than value of and therefore the institution of a far-reaching, all-powerful Government. Insurgency Quelled.
United States Civil War- Liberty of All valued more than the Liberty of Property
Insurgency achieved long enough to sustain war, insurgency quelled (not conquered) Reconstruction never fully occurs and a power vacuum is left, repeating theme in history specifically when dealing with insurgencies or insurgent groups.
WWI- Liberty of All valued greater than perceived loss of All Liberties. War with insurgency left in place as a political maneuver to attempt to establish a new normal for the region. The new normal ended up being Churchill, Mussolini, Hitler, and Stalin. There were others, but, either through treaty or conquest each capitulated to the will of one of these historical monoliths.
WWII- Liberty of All valued greater than perceived loss of All Liberties. War in Europe was a culmination of circumstances kicked down the road instead of dealing with at the time of occurrence. Sounds like unfunded government mandates may have played a role. Arms are developed and displayed for all the world to see that it (we) could inflict catastrophic results upon its (our) victims. Soon there were two nations who had the power to end to world as we knew it, playing a game of chess where the next move could always end in checkmate. This lasted nearly 50 years, until the USSR collapsed under the weight of its own people, those it could no longer afford to provide for (a requirement in communist countries) due to mismanagement of funds in an effort to defend itself from the great invader the United States of America with all of its Liberties, Freedoms, and corporate media that is the most professional propaganda machine ever to be present on the face of the Earth. We can’t be having that in Moscow, we denied that Moscow and DC in essence, they are the same thing. Both owned by elites, some wealthy, some powerful, the US model is much more superior though, because it creates value. Private companies must continuously create value or they fail. Whereas, government provides services that are not required nor expected to turn a profit, thereby spreading the loss out amongst those provided the privilege of existing in the mere jurisdiction of a zone of taxation. To provide for the Common Defense is an example of that.
So imagine this if you will. What is the pattern here? Institutionalized Governments require funding, funding comes from the value created through individual efforts being confiscated through legalized extortion called an income tax, that accrued value is then pooled together for the Common Defense that is directed by a Commander in Chief who must dig through assessments, which are not facts and therefore lies to promote policies that will protect any hope of an increase in economic growth, sometimes lies are taken as the truth and much of the confiscated wealth is lost and more importantly blood shed and lives lost or ruined. Somewhere along the line, each and every time, something was considered more valuable than personal Liberty, and the personal Liberties of millions were spent attempting to find an answer to this equation we call life being ruled by others.

Conceptually, we all agree to this as a basic trade off for safety from invading nations, which is done in order to obtain an opportunity to promote both Liberty and prosperity to ones posterity. That basic principle does apply to every interaction whether they be verbal or non verbal in most every conceivable type of organization imaginable.
You may laugh, but, what is a conversation? Is it nothing more than an exchange of ideas that have value? The move value there is, or there is a perception of having value, the longer the conversation lasts, broken down into segments, opening, supporting, and closing.
Based upon my experience and the opinion of paid government professionals, I am considered an introvert, more based the influence of my environment than any other reason. ISTJ is the total classification made upon me by others. But, what does it mean?
Ah, learning something everyday here on this planet. So what is extraverted thinking? Is it like going to the library and reading a book of other folks’ experiences either through a fictitious or non-fictitious means? What if the library was right in the palm of your hand? That is badass, is it not? You can learn from others, for free!! Want to learn how to repair your car? Youtube it, be there is a video there that provides step-by-step directions. Want to learn about something different? Google it, its amazing what you can learn from reading and watching the artistry of others. Again, its sort of like the library of the influenced [sp] we obtained the value, our wealth, or our money in this game of life and pay for a service that allows one to save energy from going to the library for the simple ability to obtain knowledge, of the sciences, of mankind, of mathematics, of the world around them. So I am guessing that taking oneself out of a comfort zone would help stimulate some of this what up until this point would be irrational behavior. However, there is this other subcategory to a subcategory, within the category that mentions extraverted thinking, demonstrated above, alternate points of view are obtainable without having to be personally insulted due to lack of communication.
The fault always mine as I failed to fully listen the problem at hand, experience demonstrates that without required involvement dedicated to the issue it will fester and scar, either physically or mentally. You ever wonder why pulling off a bandaid and arguments hurt? You are ripping your safety cover off of something that you willingly confined or covered yourself with and exposing wounded areas of both naked raw flesh and your soul to those you trusted. Most over time heal, some do not, I guess that would most likely be relative to the size of the bandaid in the end, or would that be the beginning? Wow, a chicken or the egg moment, brought to you by modern medical science.
As I sit here I am happy to scribe that today is a wonderful and glorious day. May each of you find your pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, or unicorn that you each seek, remember none and all of that stuff exists in real life. It is merely up to you how you chose to interpret the opportunities provided to you.
May all of your days be filled with rainbows ending up at the front of your door, while an Army of Calvary on Unicorns protects you from our IRS.
I am fortunate enough now to have found a unicorn to call my own that brightens my days and fills them so full of sunshine and warmth that I feel like each end of every rainbow follows me wherever I go. You have brought me Peace of body and of Spirit, for that I am forever in your debt. After all, I just wanted to say I Love You.
