Big Cat Cubs, Playing Together

The following correspondence originally took place upon my Facebook wall…

Rayn: Big Cat Cubs, Playing Together:

Nick M.: Kittehs!

Monica G.: Beautiful all types playing together.

Rayn: I could watch this a few times a day. I wish it was longer! 🙂

Discussion About Democracy

The following correspondence originally took place on my friend, Daniel Sv., after he posted a photo he took, and subsequently tagged me within his comments section, upon my act of “liking” it…

Daniel Sv.: Found this at the Barnes and Noble in Princeton. Even academics seem to be debating this now.

“Against Democracy” by Jason Brennan

Daniel Sv.: i’m surprised you’re against it. i guess you believe in small groups coming together for communal good?

Rayn: You’re surprised? I can only suggest that you read more of my posts, then…

Rayn:

“Yo, Dawg! We heard that you don’t like the tyranny of the majority over minority groups…
So, we legitimized the authority of an ultra-minority through a voting majority, so they can tyrannically rule over everybody, accordingly, while you formally select the next elect minority of tyranny to fully control your humanity, in perpetuity!”

Rayn: Constitutional Republic Versus Democracy – Inalienable Rights Versus Mob Rule:
http://acidrayn.com/2010/11/02/republic-versus-democracy-inalienable-rights-versus-mob-rule/

Daniel F.: That is why the United States is a Constitutional Republic. If two wolves and a lamb are voting on what’s for dinner we have some ground rules in place that clearly stipulate that the lamb is NOT on the menu. (Of course there needs to be a system in place to ensure that these rules are not simply disregarded.)

Rayn: Thanks for clearing that up. It was the very point of my short, concise article, of course… But, yeah… Thanks!

Rayn: Seems like you may have forgotten about this debate you were involved in, as well…

Debating About Democracy:
http://acidrayn.com/2015/10/23/debating-about-democracy/

Daniel Sv.: Rayn, ah yes i remember now. been feeding my head with machine learning, so some previous things are fuzzy to me.

Daniel Sv.: Just read a chapter now. Very fascinating. Shows how enlightenment thinkers thought getting the then ignorant masses into politics would ennoble us where we would educate ourselves and engage in rational debate. However, we have proved to be not as rational as enlightenment thinkers thought we were (we are capable of rationality, but it’s not our fundamental driver). Therefore, except for a few, politics turns “hobbits into hooligans”, with politics actually making us more stupid as we only seek information that reinforces our biases and discards information which may contradict it since we invest politics with our ego and such contradictory information would crush it. Politics therefore actually corrupts the soul more.

Rayn: Interesting conclusion about corrupting the soul. – especially in consideration of the fact that this article, by Jeffrey A. Tucker, from last year, was making the rounds again, today:

Politics Is Poison to the Human Spirit:
https://www.facebook.com/feeonline/posts/10155002224147392

Daniel Sv.: Of course, one can look at things scientifically, but we would still have our biases. Part of science is to subsume your ego and allow your opinions to be peer reviewed. To put it another way, you would need to allow that different perspectives exist.

Srinivas S.: Our democracy has an electoral college in place for a reason, that is to keep our democracy in place. The media is so anti Trump that I think is ridiculous. I saw some tripe TV show tonight in CBS called the good fight where the lead character plans to move to France after viewing Trump’s election. That is the kind of bias Trump gets. What they are doing is fomenting rifts and disunity.

Tony K.: I wonder whether there is a chapter devoted to returning voting rights back only to those that are property holders.

Because of EPA Lie, 9/11 First Responders Continue to Die

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

5 FDNY, NYPD First Responders Die From 9/11-Related Illnesses Within a Week:
http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/5-FDNY-NYPD-First-Responders-Die-From-911-Related-Illnesses-Within-1-Week-414126213.html

(Erica Byfield) Every time someone passes away, a part of me dies because I have the job of researching it and collecting data on these passing,” said John Feal, founder of the FealGood Foundation. “I have been to 159 wakes and funerals.”

Feal is the founder of the FealGood foundation, a nonprofit organization that assists first responders who have been injured in the line of duty. His group raised money for a massive granite memorial on Long Island. Each etched name represents a first responder who died from a 9/11-related illness.

My Commentary: Never forget… the EPA declared the air at Ground Zero to be “safe.”

Statism Alleviates Individuals of Personal Responsibility and Accountability, While Creating a Built-In Scapegoat for Societal Failures

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Strike the Root,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

“I did not have sexual relations…”
“Saddam is hiding WMDs…”
“If you like your doctor, you can keep him…”
“Mexico will pay for the wall…”

My Commentary: Keep outsourcing personal responsibility and accountability to these professionally lying lizards… This way, you have a built-in scapegoat to blame, while they continue to run a country of millions into the ground!

Debunking Disinformation About Diabetes Test Strip Subsidies in America

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of family…

Earlene E.: I would like to highlight the government removing the subsidy for blood test strips. Diabetics need very frequent blood testing 5+ times a day. The cost of strips is $70.00 outcome reduced blood glucose testing and more hospital admissions from hyper or hypo glycemic Diabetes . . . I am asking if everyone could put this as their status for 1 hour. I’m pretty sure I know the ones that will. Think of someone you know or love who has or has had diabetes. My hope is that in 2017 a cure will be found. Will you post it for 1 hour? To honor those who have fought or are fighting diabetes. 🙂

RaynBeware of Disinformation… Even the liberal shithole, Snopes, discredited this:

Stripping the Strips:

Certain desperate DemoCrackPots are looking to prop up the failing, worthless ACA, because they believe that their sense of entitlement outweighs the economic realities of health care… Rule #1: free-market competition is superior to government-enforced monopolies on services…
