Maintaining Your Status As A Victim

 ... is absolutely crucial because being a bigger victim that the other person is how you get rewarded.

The left, which owns entertainment, the academy and the news media, has completely bought in to the Marxist concept of some groups oppressing other groups. For Marx, it was owners oppressing workers. For Hitler, it was Jews oppressing Germans. These days, in America, there is a rank order of victimization between groups, aka Intersectionality.

If you're at or near the top, you get reparations like the blacks or flags and parades like the LGBTQWERTY people. If you're at the bottom, like straight, white males, you get the blame and the bill. At the very, very bottom are straight, white, conservative, Christian, Southern men. They get their heritage trashed, their symbols banned, their statues torn down and their culture slandered in public.

 It's OK to hate the people at the bottom. You must love the people at the top.

So there are huge stakes in the struggle to maintain your group's victim status. There are very significant and tangible, real-world consequences to falling down the rankings.

Like all Marxist-derived ideas, the premise of the rankings is stupefyingly idiotic. For instance, blacks have very little in common with each other outside of their skin. Like every group, some are hard-working and some are lazy. Some are smart and some are stupid. Some are pillars of the community and some are sociopaths. Inevitably, there will be heroes among them and there will be villains. The same goes for every group in our intersectionality standings.

Some trans people are OK, even if they are confused about their gender. Some trans people are homicidal loons, perhaps made homicidal by doses of testosterone that would get a professional athlete suspended for a year.

Inevitably, one of the sociopaths in the make-believe group the progressives have made for you will do something horrific. Maybe a white guy who likes Robert E. Lee will burn down a black church. Maybe a non-binary guy will shoot up a nightclub. Because the progs own the media and the marketing departments, you and the other members of your group will be made to answer for it.

Remember, there is a HUGE penalty to be paid for dropping in the victim standings.

It was perfectly predictable, then, that when the trans maniac shot up the Christian school that the left would knock over their podiums in their frantic rush to shout into the microphone that, really, the slaughter was all the fault of the conservatives and Christians.

I picked those three at random. There are tons more.

What we're seeing is a direct result of the idiotic notion that we all share a fantasy victim/oppressor status with people we've never met who possess similar, nearly-irrelevant characteristics with us. When we discarded the notion of people as individuals, each with a unique personality and experiences, and instead, substituted group identity as the primary feature, this was bound to happen.

So long as the progs own the media, entertainment, the academy, the marketing and HR departments of the major corporations, we're doomed to see this. This is how they see the world.

Instead of howling at their double standards or their hypocrisy or their rationalizations of psychotic mass-murderers killing innocent people, we need to directly fight the underlying idea. Until we defeat racial and sexual grouping and return to seeing each other as unique individuals, equally loved by God, this is going to keep happening.

Don't Fear The Globalists

... because they can't achieve their goals of world domination, not no way, not no how. Dig this post from a resident of Los Angeles describing that worker's paradise.

(I)t turns out that there is very little tangible benefit associated with being a responsible and productive Angeleno these days. Rather, if you are visibly productive, it seems to make you much more likely to be targeted by Los Angeles City government and punished for it.

It’s Government-sponsored psychological abuse, really. And I think it’s that insult added to the injury of living here day-to-day that winds up driving most of the population outflow..

Almost every major Los Angeles street is lined side-to-side and end-to-end with derelict RVs. They never move, many are on blocks or have rotten tires and couldn’t move even if someone wanted them to. And yet they are never ticketed, and they are never towed...

Los Angeles officials describe The Road Diet as a way to “shift drivers to other transportation options by adding hundreds of miles of bicycle and bus-only lanes.” Which, on the surface, sounds entirely uncontroversial. But the real purpose of The Road Diet, one which they never ever admit out loud, is to make driving on L.A.’s roads so awful, so dispirting, and so soul-crushing that Angelenos voluntarily abandon their cars altogether in favor of Public Transportation...

Governments are really into function stacking, here’s where The Road Diet combines with L.A.’s lax enforement of the metastasizing homeless situation to create another one of those Ur-problems that makes you believe humiliation really is the point. Now those derelict RVs have begun to park themselves in such a way that they block those brand new combo bike/parking lanes. Got that? Not only did they remove a lane that used to accomodate 33% of rush hour traffic, but now that new lane cannot be used for the purpose for which it was intended, because it’s blocked by a rotting RV with an overflowing five-gallon bucket under the on-board toilet.

It goes on and on and on like that. I haven't been in LA in a few years, so I'm not familiar with the RV issue, but I've heard and seen enough online to believe this guy. My recent experience with LA showed me that it was filthy, decaying and generally wretched.

I was listening to a Jordan Peterson podcast recently where he and his guests were pushing the panic button over the global Elites taking over every aspect of our lives. Meh. They might partially succeed for a while, but eventually their plans will collapse because they don't know how anything works. Their utopias are in their minds only. Reality is Los Angeles.

In a previous post, I pointed out that the US is unlike other countries because we have Elon, guns and money.

In those other examples, the citizens were disarmed. Because they were disarmed, the Elites could destroy their means of communicating freely. The leaders could then pursue whatever lunatic notions they chose. When your ruling class gets intellectually captured by stupidity, as ours has, they can see things are going to pieces, but they know, they just know that the solution is more and more of the stupidity. You peasants need to shut up and get with the program.

We have guns and we can see and share what's happening. Yes, the global Elites will make a mess of things. They already have. But their reign won't be complete nor will their dominance be total or permanent. Things are falling apart in the places they control, from LA to SanFran to Chicago and NYC. They can't take over the whole world all at once and, because we have guns, they can't hold the places they have if things go to pieces.

See also: DeSantis, Florida governor.

Ron DeSantis and other governors are seeing what is happening in the blue enclaves and taking very different approaches. The population is speaking with its feet, moving away from the incompetence, decay and violence.

I'm less interested in the globalists' evil plans than I am in the path away from / recovering from them.

I did just a tiny amount of searching the news for the RV encampments and sure enough, they are a thing.

Fighting The Marginalizers And Reconstituting The Klan

Wife kitteh volunteers with a local Jesuit organization to help poor children get an education. The whole affair is lovely and successful with lots of kids going on to be the first in their families to graduate from college. The work they do is God's work and the people they help are God's children. You have to keep that in mind when the activists drive you up the wall. The activists and the poor are not the same people.

We went to the Jesuit charity organization's annual gala last night and had a reasonably good time, save for the fact that I wished I was dead. We'd tied one on the previous night and then my stubborn body woke me at 0340 that morning. I felt like an extra in The Walking Dead. I sat through their self-congratulatory speeches in a numb haze with my usual curmudgeonly disagreeableness, but despite my exhaustion, I managed to have an epiphany.

The first speaker that triggered my thinking was our auxiliary bishop. He talked about "marginalized communities." It finally hit me why I hate that term. I mean I hate it. I really, really hate it. But why?

"Marginalized" is the past tense of "to marginalize." That is a verb and it represents actions and intentions that are performed by people. We'll call them "marginalizers." As he spoke about helping marginalized communities, he painted a picture of the Jesuit volunteers giving succor to innocent victims of injustice. Their situations weren't something caused by their own decisions or the vagaries of fate, they were done to them, done by marginalizers.

Just who was he talking about? Well, as a straight, white, conservative, Christian, Southophilic man, I knew he was talking about me. The talks had enough references to various racial groups to make that implicit accusation very nearly explicit. 

Similarly, other speakers talked about working for "justice." That word hardly needs a context to figure out that they're implying the existence of villains who are inflicting injustice on the poor, the homeless, the addicts and the refugees. And just who might be those villains? Decades of PAO-pumped history months at work for every racial and sexual group but mine left me no doubt that I was the villain.

When they trotted out some woman who had spent years working hard to help the illegals, I wondered if it might save time to bring on a marginalizer who committed injustice to speak instead. I mean, if the problem is that the marginalized are suffering as a result of marginalization, wouldn't it be better in the long run if we stopped the marginalizing? Maybe we could talk to some marginalizers, find out why they were marginalizing and get them to back off. 

It would be a much better use of your time and money and you'd do a lot more for the marginalized if you stopped the problem at the source.

Yeah, that's not happening. It would require them to humanize the marginalizers and to do that, you'd have to understand their needs and feelings. Who wants to do that? What if you found out that the marginalized are really just the stupid, lazy and/or unlucky? Then you'd only being doing the work of God and not joining a mighy crusade against evil. That's just a grind where you fight against an infinite ocean of misfortune instead of heroically waving your flag as you do battle with unjust marginalizers.

A great movement can exist without a belief in God, but never without a belief in the devil.

Over the past year, I've seen white anger rising online and heard it more and more from popular commentators. It's not the racist "white rage" that woke dingledork Mark Milley is on about, it's feedback from people who have been unjustly painted as villains their whole lives.

See also: Adams, Scott.

The final speaker of the night mentioned the "divisions in out country" without realizing that the Jesuits and some of their volunteers are the source of those divisions. As they stood up there talking about how great they were, they kept kicking me in the groin. Frankly, like many, many others, I've had enough of that.

This how you get the Klan. You group people by race and sexuality, then you take one of those groups and blame them for everything. That gets you memes like this.

It speaks a truth, one the Jesuits and their people need to hear before we really get divisive.

What if, instead of talking about justice and marginalized communities which imply the existence of groups of villains, we told stories like the one below? My heart goes out to the family. Nothing is said about the causes of the family's separation, nothing needs to be said. The video speaks of the desperate need children have for an intact, traditional family. The child's joy at finally being able to have one after 12 years of anticipation is palpable. It must have been like Christmas morning times 100.

Send Elon, Guns And Money!

What happens in Iran when you mention that you've noticed the Mullahs have screwed things up again with their wacky notions based on literal interpretations of the Koran? Some dudes in robes with truncheons show up at your door and beat you.

What happened in East Germany when you remarked to your neighbor that the store was out of bread and meat again? The Stasi, in their fashionable black leather jackets kicked your door down and hauled you off to prison.

How about in Nazi Germany when you talked about how the neighborhood was falling to pieces, mostly because Allied bombers were flying unopposed by the Luftwaffe and bombing the place to bits? The Gestapo appeared and you disappeared.

What if you were a West African in the 1800s and mentioned that the leaders of that slavery-based African empire, the Dahomey, had managed to kill most of the young men by sending them out on raids to capture other Africans to sell them to the honkies? Well, according to the recent documentary film, The Woman King, a bunch of hot chicks in loincloths showed up at your hut and ... well, the record is a bit hazy on just how effective they were. Suffice it to say, they weren't there to twerk for your enjoyment.

In most place and for most of history, if you quacked about your leaders being a pack of dingledorks, chances were good that they'd make sure you regretted it.

So here in 2023, our American Elites are the biggest collection of losers, morons and fools we've ever had. Twitter is larded up with people yelling about it. Dig this tweet, for example.

That right there is something you'd never come close to seeing in Putin's Russia, the Empire of the Ashanti, an Aztec city or the world that Elizabeth Warren wishes she ruled. It's a 1,000,000-view flagging of an absolutely massive failure on the part of our leaders.

How'd that happen? How is it possible that the utter incompetence and idiocy of our rulers is visible to all?

Warren Zevon has the answer. Well, if you replace "lawyers" with "free speech," that is.

In those other examples, the citizens were disarmed. Because they were disarmed, the Elites could destroy their means of communicating freely. The leaders could then pursue whatever lunatic notions they chose. When your ruling class gets intellectually captured by stupidity, as ours has, they can see things are going to pieces, but they know, they just know that the solution is more and more of the stupidity. You peasants need to shut up and get with the program.

Look, Iranian dudes and dudettes of all castes are prone to the same sins that the dudes and dudettes of East Weevil, Indiana are. We're all fallen creatures made in the image of God. We all are prone to use what power we have to get our own ways. Our own ways are rarely the product of rational thought directed at constructive ends without being seriously influence by our desires and selfishness. The more power and immunity from consequences we have, the more we can let ourselves be bent towards self-indulgence.

The Dahomey could send hot chicks to twerk for you ... err ... try to beat you up, but get their butts kicked ... err ... give you a serious nagging, but here in America, while the morons running Stanford might be able to run off a Federal judge trying to give a speech, they can't silence you completely. The Stasi could take you out and shoot you, but if the FBI tried that more than just a few times, in short order, they'd have a lot of vacancies on their staff.

Elon's tweet, above, opened my eyes to what is happening in America right now. I've blogged ad nauseum that our Elites don't know how things work and that's true. Elon's tweet showed me that here in America, thanks to Elon, guns and money, the result will never be Iran, East Germany or slave-soaked West Africa.

We're going to mock the morons in charge mercilessly and there's nothing they can do about it. Oh sure, they can silence me at work, threatening my job if I step out of ideological line, but thanks to Elon, guns and money, I can tweet under a pseudonym as much a I like. Sometimes my stuff even goes viral.

As Yakov Smirnov liked to say, "What a country!"

Our Household Lacks Discipline

 ... inside and out.

Starting in the backyard, we have these two bird feeders that the local finches, sparrows and doves frequent.

They look fine, right?


I have to fill the darn things two or three times a day because some of the little nimrods sit at the feeder and throw the smaller seeds down onto the ground so they can get at the sunflower seeds.


Meanwhile, indoors, our small, chubby Catican Guard is getting so flabby that she needs her blankets folded about 8 layers deep so it's soft enough for her.


ChatGPT Update

It turns out that ChatGPT loses track of the conversation after a while. I had a long thread going, playing around with vignettes for my novel and I asked it to give me a scene where Jimmy, the all-American boy who talks with 50's exclamations was riding in redneck Bobbylee's pickup and it gave me everything in standard English. In previous dialog, it had kept track of the accents.

It took a couple more prompts to get it right. Apparently, ChatGPT has limited memory and while it's building a model of your story, that model only goes so far back. Once your original character definitions get too far back in the chat session, ChatGPT forgets them and starts guessing.

It works great for vignettes and exploring story ideas, but it's not a true writing partner.

Chat GPT Version 4

 ... is simply unreal.

ChatGPT rolled out a completely new version of their product and I've been playing with it, writing Arthurian fanfic and working on my Hardy Boys takeoff. It is simply unreal. It has a prompt limit and you can only ask it for 25 things every 4 hours. Thank God for that or I would never leave my study.

I've been experimenting with it to understand how to make better prompts and keeping a file of character descriptions for my novel. As I work with it and then correct it, I refine the characters so the AI produces the story I have in my mind. It's simply fabulous. So far, I've been working with four characters, using dialog vignettes to correct it and add to my file where I keep their descriptions.

ChatGPT treats each session as an isolated event. That is, if I write a story about Bobbylee in one session and a story about Angus in a different session, ChatGPT can't cross-reference them. It's up to me to collate my character, setting and mood definitions myself to use them in the novel. This makes it difficult to branch a story and experiment with different developments. 

If I go back to an earlier event and try something new, it obliterates everything after that and starts fresh from that point. I wrote myself into a corner in an Arthurian piece and had no choice but to wipe it out and start from the place I liked. I've got a Chrome plugin that will save my ChatGPT sessions to a text file so I've got a copy of my prompts and its replies so I can recreate the thing from scratch if I want. That's annoying because of the interaction limits. 

If they charged 10x as much for unlimited interactions, I'd pay it. I imagine many others would, too. In fact, I would bet it's very price inelastic. I'm guessing that because of the processing power limitations, they need to set those limits.

At any rate, with my novel, I've discovered that I can act as a movie director. I define the characters and then prompt it with plot developments and word-length section definitions. I'm working on defining Bobbylee the redneck, Angus the Aussie and Jimmy the Hardy Boys clone right now. Here are some samples. I've also added one of their teachers, Ms. Scharnhorst. I'm naming all of the public school staff after Kriegsmarine ships and officers. Hey, if they're going to go full Nazi, I might as well give them appropriate names.


write a 300-word section where the three boys, hanging around bobbylee's old pickup truck discuss the possibility that the professor plans to bring down the water tower and flood part of the town. jimmy thinks the professor wants to ruin parts of the town to make his own real estate more valuable. angus just thinks he's a wanker and adds some more aussie insults. bobbylee quotes something from chesterton that dazes jimmy until snaps out of it.

write a 200-word section where angus brings up ms scharnhorst's most recent rant about toxic whiteness and the boys make fun of her


Vignette 1:

Bobbylee leaned against his old pickup truck, adjusting his Confederate forage cap as he chewed on a piece of straw. "I reckon we oughta consider somethin' real peculiar," he drawled. "That ol' professor might be fixin' to bring down the water tower, floodin' part of our town."

Jimmy frowned, his eyes narrowing in thought. "Gosh, that's a wild idea, Bobbylee. But why would he do that?"

"Well," Bobbylee scratched his chin, "I reckon it's 'cause he wants to make his own land more valuable, ya know? With all that chaos, he could swoop in and buy up some prime real estate."

Angus scoffed, rolling his eyes. "That bloke's just a bloody wanker," he spat. "He's got a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock, if you ask me."

Bobbylee chuckled, then suddenly quoted Chesterton in his thick Southern drawl, "‘Evil always takes advantage of ambiguity.' That there, Jimmy, means the professor's up to no good with all them secrets and confusions."

Jimmy's eyes glazed over as he tried to decipher the quote. After a moment, he shook his head to clear it. "Wow, Bobbylee, you always come up with the most profound things. Anyway, let's get down to business and figure out what that kooky professor is up to."

Vignette 2:

As the boys lounged by the truck, Angus snickered. "Did y'all hear Ms. Scharnhorst's latest rant about toxic whiteness? She's a few stubbies short of a six-pack, that one."

Jimmy rolled his eyes. "Jeepers, she's always going on about that stuff. It's hard to take her seriously."

Bobbylee chimed in, his accent dripping with sarcasm. "Yeah, she's like a hound dog tryin' to chase two rabbits at once. You can't rightly tell what she's after, but it sure is entertainin' to watch."

Angus let out a hearty laugh. "Too right, mate. She's as mad as a cut snake, that one. You reckon she'll ever figure out which way's up?"

"Nah," Jimmy grinned. "She's too busy tryin' to change the world to notice she's the one who's all mixed up."


ms scharnhorst is a strange figure. you can't tell if she's a woman using her hairstyle and clothes to look like a man or a man trying to use makeup, her hair dyed a strange color and piercings to make himself look like a woman. describe ms. scharnhorst's appearance in detail


Ms. Scharnhorst is indeed a strange figure, her appearance artfully crafted to defy traditional gender norms. Her hairstyle is an unconventional mix, with the sides shaved close to the scalp and the top left slightly longer, dyed an odd shade of lavender that seems to change hue under different lighting. This peculiar choice makes it difficult to discern whether she's a woman trying to adopt masculine features or a man using unconventional hair color to appear more feminine.

Her facial features are equally ambiguous. Her eyebrows are meticulously shaped, neither too thick nor too thin, and her eyes are a mysterious blend of colors that shift between shades of gray and blue. Her makeup is skillfully applied, with just a hint of eyeliner and mascara to enhance her eyes without revealing too much about her biological sex.

Ms. Scharnhorst's clothing choices only add to the enigma. She favors oversized, gender-neutral garments in muted tones that obscure her figure and leave her true form a mystery. She often wears baggy pants, loose-fitting shirts, and chunky sweaters that could belong to anyone, regardless of their gender.

Her accessories, too, blur the line between masculinity and femininity. She sports several piercings, including a nose ring and multiple earrings that are both subtle and edgy. She also wears a mix of chunky, industrial-style jewelry and more delicate pieces, making it impossible to pinpoint her gender identity based on her adornments alone.

All these carefully chosen elements combine to create an image of Ms. Scharnhorst that is truly enigmatic, leaving onlookers guessing whether she's a woman attempting to look like a man or a man trying to appear more like a woman.


write a 275-word section where ms. scharnhorst accuses bobbylee of being white supremacist because of the confederate flag bumper sticker on his truck. bobbylee rips her apart with chesterton quotes


Ms. Scharnhorst, with her ever-present air of self-righteousness, approached Bobbylee in the school parking lot as he stood by his truck. "Bobbylee Johnson," she began, her voice dripping with disdain, "I couldn't help but notice that offensive Confederate flag bumper sticker on your truck. It's a symbol of white supremacy, and I demand that you remove it immediately."

Bobbylee, unfazed by her accusation, leaned against his truck and drawled, "Well, Ms. Scharnhorst, I reckon you're barkin' up the wrong tree. You've misunderstood the whole point of that there flag. It represents my heritage, not hate. But since you've gone and ruffled my feathers, let me share some wisdom from ol' G.K. Chesterton."

Clearing his throat, he quoted in his thick Southern accent, "'To have a right to do a thing is not at all the same as to be right in doing it.' You might think you've got the right to judge me, but that don't mean you're fit to be the judge."

Ms. Scharnhorst's face turned a shade of red that nearly matched her oddly dyed hair. "You cannot justify your bigotry with some outdated quotes!"

Bobbylee smirked and responded with another Chesterton gem, "'The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.' You see, ma'am, I ain't fightin' against nobody. I'm just standin' up for my family, my history, and my culture like a stubborn mule."

Ms. Scharnhorst's eyes narrowed as she tried to come up with a retort, but Bobbylee continued, "One more thing, Ms. Scharnhorst. Chesterton also said, 'There is a thought that stops thought. That is the only thought that ought to be stopped.' You tryin' to shut down our conversation based on your own assumptions is like tryin' to put lipstick on a pig."

With that, Bobbylee tipped his cap, leaving a speechless Ms. Scharnhorst to stew in her own indignation like a possum in the headlights.


write a 100-word section where bobbylee adds an appropriate quote from robert e lee before he gets in his truck and drives away


Bobbylee paused for a moment before delivering one final quote, this time from General Robert E. Lee himself. "Ms. Scharnhorst, let me leave you with this thought: 'The education of a man is never completed until he dies.' You might wanna consider learnin' a thing or two about not judgin' a book by its cover."

With a knowing smile, Bobbylee climbed into his truck, started the engine, and drove away, leaving a bewildered Ms. Scharnhorst to contemplate the wisdom of the Confederate general's words.


bobbylee adds an anecdote about determination from his great-great-grandfather who fought in the first virginia under stonewall jackson


Bobbylee paused for a moment, then decided to share a personal anecdote to drive his point home. "You know, Ms. Scharnhorst, my great-great-grandpa fought in the First Virginia under Stonewall Jackson during the War of Northern Aggression. He had a sayin' about determination that stuck with our family through the generations."

He looked her straight in the eyes and continued, "He used to say, 'When you're in a tight spot, you can't just sit there like a bump on a log. You've got to dig your heels in and fight with everything you've got, just like we did back in the day.' Now, I ain't sayin' that the war was all sunshine and rainbows, but it's a part of who I am, and it's somethin' I carry with me. I learn from it, but I don't let it define me."

Bobbylee fixed his gaze on Ms. Scharnhorst, his voice steady and determined. "So, ma'am, before you go throwin' stones in glass houses, remember that we all have our histories and our stories to tell. And like my great-great-grandpa used to say, it's our determination that makes us who we are, not the labels other folks try to slap on us."

Ms. Scharnhorst stared at Bobbylee, her mouth slightly agape. She couldn't comprehend the points he was making, as her mind was so entrenched in her Marxist, racial-justice framework that his words simply didn't fit her worldview. She was unaccustomed to dealing with such nuanced perspectives that went beyond the black-and-white labels she was used to applying to people and situations.

Unable to muster a response or counter-argument, she stood there speechless, her face a mix of confusion and frustration. Bobbylee's words had exposed the limitations of her rigid beliefs, leaving her at a loss for how to proceed.

With that, Bobbylee tipped his cap, leaving a bewildered Ms. Scharnhorst standing in the parking lot, forced to confront the possibility that her understanding of the world might be more limited than she had ever imagined.

The Streets Of The Mullahs' San Francisco

Once you see it, our evolution into Iran with the way the woke progressives continually choose fidelity to their insane religion over practicality, you can't stop seeing it. Dig this thread about a CNN crew getting robbed in San Francisco while they were there to do a story about crime in San Francisco. You can't make this stuff up.

Here's the payoff.

How hopelessly screwed up does your city have to be for your airport to find it natural that passenger's IDs have been stolen while visiting?
