Emotions are not tools of cognition

What is the source of the content of human emotions?

A college professor enters his classroom, opens his briefcase, takes out a stack of blue books, and then begins distributing them to his students.  As he is handing out the bluebooks, there is an atmosphere of tension and anxiety in the classroom.  Finally, one brave student raises his hand and says: “but, but, you didn’t say there was a test today!” Continue reading

Trump versus the Deep State

The title of the article immediately below verbalizes the big question: Who will win, Trump or the Deep State?  The answer will determine the course of our nation.  The United States has been on the path to a collectivist (statist) dictatorship for over 100 years.  The odds of turning the direction of our country around are very slim.  But, “We the People” finally spoke up, hopefully before it is too late.  We elected the “outsider” Trump as our President, and the “Deep State” was immediately threatened.  That is the real reason for the vehemence of the “Never-Trump” and anti-Trump movements.  They are now fighting for their lives because many of them will go to prison if Justice is served.  That is the significance of the FISA memo controversy currently dominating our news.  Making this “secret memo” public will reveal some of the Deep State operations and prove its existence.  You need to encourage your Congressman to make them public.   Continue reading

North Korean EMP Attack?

This is speculation on my part, but it something to think about.  With all of the fake news surrounding us, I can only speculate.

All Americans should be aware of the North Korean threat that could kill up to 90% of our population.  They say within a year, but I think it will only take 3 or 4 months.  Think about what will happen with no electricity–anywhere!  Everything stops.  Everything.  Continue reading

The Problem with Socialism

Margaret Thatcher, the Former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, once said that: “The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.”  Wealth redistribution by government is an essential component of socialism.  But, it is morally wrong because it is theft.  Whether committed by the local criminal, the mafia, or the government, theft is theft.  The person on the other end of this transaction is receiving stolen property.  All of it is wrong because it violates the right to private property.  Continue reading

The Real Enemy is “Inside the Wire”!

Below is an email I received this morning.  I will try to briefly put it into a wider “big picture” perspective.  The bottom line is that this is all about your freedoms.  It is about the kind of government you will have in the future United States.  This will determine whether or not you and your children will live as slaves.  Your “right” to the pursuit of your happiness is in serious jeopardy.  Continue reading

Criticizing Thomas Jefferson

Anyone who criticizes Thomas Jefferson or any of our Founding Fathers because they owned slaves is a complete idiot!  They are implying that everyone must be both correct and consistent in their views.  Are they?  The first thing they should do is to take an honest look in the mirror to see the biggest hypocrite in their own miserable lives.  Continue reading

Cultural Appropriation

The idea of cultural appropriation is stupid on its face! The idiots who came up with it are intellectual retards! If I go to a Mexican restaurant, I am honoring Mexican cuisine and culture by spending my money on it. The restaurant owners will be happy for the increased sales which adds to the profitability of their restaurant. The owners are also promoting Mexican culture! Continue reading

Comments on Global Warming

A new study ‘blows the Greenhouse Theory out of the water”.  Interesting….  It will take several years for the shock of all of this to be reviewed and verified, but at least it might be okay now to be skeptical about global warming.  Continue reading

What Memorial Day Really Means

On Memorial Day we should be aware of and appreciate what our military men fought for.  They fought and many died for our rights and freedoms.   Our rights should be considered sacred.  Americans need to better understand what individual rights are, and are not.  We are losing more every day because Americans do not understand what they are, and are not. Continue reading

Do You Know Your Ideology?

The title essay (first chapter) in the small paperback Philosophy: Who Needs It? may be the most important essay for young people to read, but it is not enough by itself.  The essay explains that philosophy underlies all of our views, opinions, and perspectives.  It is a conceptual connection that cannot be denied.  But beyond that, young people searching for meaning in their lives need to know that there is an answer, there is a solution for them and for America so they should not despair–but time to act is short.  The answer is a “philosophy for living on earth”; one that can rationally explain why their highest purpose is to achieve their personal happiness in their lifetime–and that this is realistically possible.  Continue reading
