Coping: The “Renaissance Core”

My run-in Monday morning with the troll-like comments about Ure’s truly – and a very thoughtful reply by Oilman2, who as you might expect is a friend, got me to thinking I should do a lot more explaining about what real UrbanSurvival thinking is all about. Oh, sure, it will come into focus as you … Read More

Monday on the “Sacrificial Horse” – Trumpsteria

Say what? First Br?hma?a: The World as a Sacrificial Horse, of course! We at last arrive this week at the “real” first actions of the Trump administration. As we’ve been pointing out for weeks, the President doesn’t get to “make up” laws. To be sure, there was a lot of confusion when Trump in recent … Read More

Coping: With “Texas Nationalism”

Sheesh! First thing in my face this morning were some of the most insulting comments ever received from a Texas reader, I’m embarrassed to say. Whether they were actually posted by a government-paid “troll” (which really do exist, using multiple personality software developed 10+years back) remains to be seen. At any rate, the insults were … Read More

EU-Bashing: An Alternative to Trump-Bashing

As readers know, I am a huge fan of equality. This week especially, since there has been mostly nothing but a parade of Trump bashing on the mainstream media and it’s been old since the election which the die-hards on the left can seem to accept they lost. But there are other targets for the … Read More

T-Bash du Jour: Trade War

The hand-wringing is so intense this morning I feel like I should be passing out cans of Burt’s Bees Hand Salve.  Politico warns us of “How Trump wall could beckon global trade war…” Over at the NY Times they claim “Tax Plan Sows Confusion as Tensions With Mexico Soar.” The Washington Post looks at the matter … Read More

Coping: “Light Crown” Project Update 3

What is the “Light Crown Project?” Yeah, let’s start there… As I explained in the December 28 Coping section “That report outlined some curious historical evidence that I had both discovered and intuited by reading a lot of history and, because of my wife Elaine’s experience with a cutting edge photo biomodulation technique for treatment … Read More

The “Stupid Trump-Bashers Hate Money” Discussion

Damnedest thing I ever saw. And after almost 68-years that’s going a good bit. While the Trump-bashing continues unabated by the left-wing media, let’s do a simple thought-experiment to see how sane these people are. The election was held on November 8th. We give two people $1,000 each and tell them to go invest it. … Read More

Coping: Millennial’s Book 4: [keyword: Flow]

(simple title art) Reader Note: If you are just catching on, each Thursday we’re are doing a chapter each week of a book I’m writing for Millennials – teaching the insights that will (hopefully!) allow them to live long and prosper – and be around to clean up after us Old People who made a … Read More

Mexico Wall-ternatives

With the Trump administration signing off on the Wall with Mexico this morning, we look at the problems of Mexico more broadly this morning. While the Wall is certainly a short-term solution, it seems to us that a tighter wall will simply increase the narco-collapse of Mexico.  I expect within five years or less, we … Read More

Trump FCC Pick Would Seize Net Freedom

Kiss-off freedom on the Internet. The Trump administration’s pick to chair the Federal Communications Commission is quoted as saying he’s in favor of FCC content regulation of the Internet. “Trump names new FCC chairman: Ajit Pai, who wants to take a ‘weed whacker’ to net neutrality.” What’s worse? In a 2015 news story here, Pai … Read More

Coping: Statistics for the Stupid, Boycott the MSM!

I can not believe how incredibly stupid the White House lefty pressed corpse (sic) has become.  Monday after breakfast, Elaine and I watched appalled as a parade of “experts’ argued minutia of crowd size at the Washington events of the past couple of days. GMAFB – can  we just turn over some dirt and build … Read More

Trump Week One in Double-Standard Land

I don’t know if you remember the first week of the Obama administration. But it was goo-goo and gah-gah and “Oh this is so cool.” Yet to see the crime-spree demonstrators and the vulgarity of the made-up “women’s marches” what comes into focus is that America has become racist, sexist, and bigoted, indeed.  International Women’s … Read More
