The Case for Being Divisive

It has been said, “United we stand, divided we fall,” and that is true. It is also true that if we allow sedition from within, we will fall as well.

It has been said, “United we stand, divided we fall,” and that is true.

It is also true that if we allow sedition from within, we will fall as well.

I am divisive, and that’s a good thing. Let me explain…

Do we not divide ourselves for good reasons all the time? If your child falls into the wrong crowd, do you not try to divide your child from that group? If your boss at work is a monster and bullies you, do you not divide yourself from that company and go to work for another? When your partner beats you, do you not divide yourself for your safety? When your financial advisor is losing you money, do you not divide from him or her in order to save your money?

Of course.

So, why all this talk that we somehow for some reason must not be divided from the left? Truth be told, they are divided from us. They want nothing to do with our agenda, our ideas, our lifestyles or anything else. They want to crush conservatives.

So, yes, I am divisive. We should be divisive.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose freedom over tyranny.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose capitalism over socialism.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose life over death.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose truth over lies.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose tradition over radical progressivism.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose love over hate.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose peace over so-called “peaceful protests.”

We divide ourselves from others when we choose fair elections over gaming the system.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose the Constitution as written over “a living, changing document.”

We divide ourselves from others when we choose law and order over lawlessness.

We divide ourselves from others when we choose color-blindness over identity politics.

You see, sometimes you have to divide yourself in order to show what you truly believe and what you will stand for. Do not be afraid of standing for truth. Do not be afraid of standing alone against the mob and dividing yourself from them.

Sometimes, being “divisive” is the right thing to do.

The Dead Do Tell Tales

The words of Dr. William Maples, in describing typical suicide victims, are poignant

Published

on

It’s shame that the late Jeffrey Epstein, who allegedly hung himself, couldn’t have been examined by Dr. William R. Maples. Epstein’s body would have had a lot to say.

Poignant Words

Apart from the FBI subterfuge surrounding Epstein’s death, I found the words of Dr. Maples, in describing typical suicide victims to be poignant. Maples is a forensic researcher, diagnosing how and when people died. In his book, Dead Men Do Tell Tales, Dr. Maples, he writes, “Many of the skeletons that come into my laboratory belong to suicide victims who behaved like shy hermits in their final hours.”

“Usually they are found in remote places. People often go to some hidden place to kill themselves, whether from a desire to act alone and unhindered, or because they wish simply to disappear in solitude, spending their last moments in reflective silence.”

Would these people have killed themselves if they could’ve regularly attained reflective silence? Was their quest to die alone simply an ill-advised solution to the stresses they faced? How would their lives have been if they knew appropriate, reliable ways to find solace in the here and now, at home, at work, and everywhere in between?

Be True to Yourself

The masses take pills by the boatload. The masses race though their days. The masses, by and large, live lives of tension and turmoil. Stress has become the malady of the generation, and it’s better to not to follow the crowd.

Being true to yourself means doing what you need to do to stay healthy, balanced, and relaxed. It means having inner directedness. It requires drawing upon your knowledge, experience, and instinct to carve your own path; and to have less stress because you are less swayed by popular or prevailing norms. It is thinking and acting based on an ever-developing internal guidance system.

Being true to yourself means is learning what doesn’t work. You determine what is and is not relevant to you, and ultimately, what is and is not appropriate for you to stay in control of your day, every day, and of your life which could well extend for many decades.

Joe Biden Bingo

Here is a tool which could help you to stay tuned on broadcasts featuring our acting president

Published

on

Even if you caught only snippets of Joe Biden’s recent press conference, you know that his mental decline continues unabated. It’s unlikely that even a handful of Americans watched the event in its entirety. Who would want to waste their time?

What’s occurring is a national travesty, and it is increasingly evident to larger portions of our population that Joe Biden is being abused as an elder, as he abuses others.

Throughout his 365 days in office, Biden has struggled to pronounce a word and then offers a non-sequitur to what he was originally saying. With regularity he tells stories that are simply false. He refers to his vice president as president. He insults vast segments of the population. He stumbles and stammers repeatedly. He checks his watch, fumbles with his mask, and snaps at people when he doesn’t like a question. And those are the least of his faux pas with audiences.
