Free Will versus Randomness

From the Dust Bowl of the 1930s to the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to Hurricanes Michael and Florence, we are constantly reminded of just how much of life is random.  No matter how many natural disasters we study, we can never answer the question of why random events — both good and bad — occur.

Lessons from an Attempted Lynching

Posted on October 9, 2018 by Robert Ringer Comments (60)

At the risk of being politically incorrect, I have to take issue with the views that most people had of two women in the attempted lynching of Brett Kavanaugh.  Not because they’re women, but because they played such key roles in how things turned out. First is Susan Collins, whom many, including Sean Hannity, labeled […]

If Kavanaugh Goes Down, Then What?

Surprise, surprise — another successful Democratic stall in the Judge Kavanaugh confirmation process, made possible by yet another Republican el foldo.  Is there anyone with an IQ over 50 who did not know that the Dirty Dems would find a way to once again delay Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation and that the usual spineless Republicans would […]

Negotiation Is Capitulation

Now that everyone realizes that the Christine Blasey Ford (aka “Stormy II”) allegations against Brett Kavanaugh are a complete sham, let’s say it loud and clear:  Given the lack of evidence in this sideshow — and especially corroborating evidence — the allegations by Stormy II should have been ignored and Brett Kavanaugh should have already […]

Free Will and Mind Control

mind

Few disciplines are more difficult for modern man than silencing his noise machine.  It’s a machine that continuously floods the mind with thoughts of guilt, anger, the latest injustices he has suffered, and endless trivia.  It randomly engages in self-debate and senseless chatter, blocking out all attempts to bring forth a meaningful thought. Many people […]

Embracing Reality

As the lying, corruption, and craziness continue unabated in Washington, it’s a reminder of just how important it is to one’s sanity to embrace reality.  Reality is synonymous with truth, but, as Baltasar Gracian, the insightful and pragmatic 17th century Jesuit priest, cautioned, “Truth is abhorred by the masses.” Instead of loving truth, most people […]

U.S. President Donald J. Trump and Former U.S. President Barack Obama wait to exit the east front steps for the departure ceremony during the 58th Presidential Inauguration in Washington, D.C., Jan. 20, 2017. More than 5,000 military members from across all branches of the armed forces of the United States, including reserve and National Guard components, provided ceremonial support and Defense Support of Civil Authorities during the inaugural period.

Jimmy Kimmel made a great joke when he said, referring to Barack Obama’s bad economy, “You can’t turn around four years in just eight years.”  Hmm … come to think of it, even though it had all the markings of late-night comedy, it actually was not Jimmy Kimmel who said this. Nor was it Stephen […]

Toward a Debate-Free Life

PODIUM

Watching the obnoxious but relentless Dirty Dems arguing the inarguable day in and day out is a constant reminder to me that the most time-wasting and exhausting activity in the world is debating someone who thrives on heated exchanges.  An argumentative person is not only unpleasant to be around, he also can consume large chunks […]

Napoleon Hill, W. Clement Stone, and Me

It’s amazing how some books continue to sell forty, fifty, even a hundred years after they were first published.  In the field of personal development, the champion in this regard is undoubtedly Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill.  The book was first published in 1937 and has gone through many iterations since then. In […]

Handling ANEL Disease

I was talking to my friend Bill a few weeks ago, and in the course of our conversation he happened to mention something about the business troubles Dexter Windbag (pseudonym) had encountered in recent years.  I had no idea the guy was still alive, and had no interest in hearing about his troubles. Nevertheless, my […]
