The Art of War: Elephants and "Squirrel!"

by Angela K. Durden

Make no mistake about it. The latest "Squirrel!" technique deployed by the Pussy-Hat Wearing Politically Correct Liberal Democrat RINO Socialist Fascist Commies [P-HWPCLDRSFCs] is the elephant story hitting the headlines featuring Big-Bad-Meanie Trump reversing Obama The Saint's ban on importing elephant parts into the US.

Motivated by jealousy while claiming they care more than me about everything, the P-HWPCLDRSFCs are surprised when the end result of their caring turns out badly.

For instance: Raging wildfires in California. Sure, there are wildfires in other places and, of course these rage. But Cali sure has a lot more than just about anywhere else. So the question must be asked: Why?

I posit the following reason: Political Correctness.


I care for animals. When I see a turtle on the road and it is within my power to do so, I take it across the road in the direction it was headed.

But the P-HWPCLDRSFCs won't allow perfectly fine controlled burns of underbrush in case living under that brush is one of those little turtles (or whatever endangered species du jour they are focused on).

So, massive amounts of fuel accrue and then every animal dies. But that is okay because, you see, those fires are the fault of uncaring, animal hating, underbrush-destroying Conservatives, small-government Libertarians, and freedom-loving, Constitution-protecting Citizens everywhere — never the silly policies of the righteous P-HWPCLDRSFCs .


Treated in the same fashion by the P-HWPCLDRSFCs is the practice of culling.


Around the world, animal populations are managed so that balance in an area is maintained.* Too many of one animal eating too many of another makes for a trickle down scenario and next thing you know dogs, cats, old people, little children, and gardens are being eaten and trampled by alligators, bears, boars, deer, and lions and tigers and elephants roaming the suburbs.

Zambia and Zimbabwe have an elephant problem. Indiscriminate killing led to a a close extinction. The countries enacted measures to protect the elephant. But too many elephants in an area, or old and sick elephants spreading disease, means measures must be taken to protect the rest of the herd and the people who live there.

So what do they, and other countries with similar problems, do? Why, they invite hunters to come and do the work for them. These hunters pay a price to legally shoot, thus raising much-needed revenue, and they responsibly stay within the boundaries of killing only those marked and stay within quantity limits.

But what about the headline of Trump's reversing Obama The Saint's ban and then holding off on the order?


The P-HWPCLDRSFCs say it is because Trump's son asked him to make it legal to bring in elephant trophy hunt booty and Daddy couldn't say no. Then you read that Trump is holding off on reversing the ban and all the P-HWPCLDRSFCs claim it was their powerful petitions that made him do it.

But the real reason is Trump is holding off is because of Sun-tzu's The Art of War. "Is this the hill on which I need to die?" is the one question every warrior asks. To answer that question, Donald "The Hammer" Trump must understand the concepts of Potential Energy, Strategic Offensive, and The Fray which state:

Potential Energy:
"Orderly disorder is based on careful division; Courageous fear, on potential energy; Strong weakness, on troop dispositions."

Strategic Offensive:
"Ultimate excellence lies not in winning every battle but in defeating the enemy without ever fighting. The highest form of warfare is to attack strategy itself."

The Fray:
"Take a roundabout route, and lure the enemy with some gain."


"The Hammer" understands those concepts and knows the real reason these anti-him headlines are showing up.

It's the latest in the constant cry of the puppet masters yelling "Squirrel!" and getting their legions of the P-HWPCLDRSFCs to look away from anything that supports freedom and takes away power from the puppet masters. 









*Not all P-HWPCLDRSFCs are vegetarian. Eating their fair share of burgers and steaks means they are also "culling the herd." But, hey, who am I to point out their hypocrisy.

Evil has no conscience.

by Angela K. Durden

Last, but not least, Evil exists across all strata be it economic, class, nationality, color, religion (including atheism), politics, job description, education level, gender, and age. Evil will use everything available to fool victims in order to get away with their crime. Evil has no conscience. 

Evil seeks its own interests; no other interest does it acknowledge as being relevant. 

Evil will even accuse other Evils to divert attention away from themselves. 

Alabama's Judge Roy Moore is being accused of fondling underage girls. Whether or not that is true remains to be seen. However, as if Politically Correct Democrat Liberal Socialist Fascist Commies can't and would never do anything like it, the story circulating on Facebook via comments goes along these lines:

"See, the AltRight judge is a hypocrite, and..." blah, blah, blah, more of the same types of comments that make the assumption that only conservatives of any stripe are hypocrites and do these bad things. 

But how about all those pussy-hat wearing women who just love to defend rapist Bill Clinton while demonizing all of his female victims who spoke out against his evil? 

See? Evil is everywhere. 

Alabama's Judge Roy Moore.


After posting comments you see to your right, one young fellow I know in the real world asked the question, "When are we going to wake up?"

My answer to him was this:


To your question "when are we going to wake up?" I say some people are woke. That a person secretly abuses others is not an unknown. The entire history of mankind is full of such examples, some of whom are the biggest hypocrites ever — preaching from pulpits, ruling from benches, and using the force of law to control the private lives of others, as well as tormenting their spouses and children using threats of torture, punishment, and death if they speak up.

Once these things are discovered, laws exist to punish the abuser. Now, will anybody go on the record against the abuser himself (and in a lot of instances, herself)?

That is a complicated question with a complicated answer.


First, most people are truly good and simply cannot conceive of the concept of evil much less the reality of it. Therefore, even when they see it, will convince themselves it is they who are misinterpreting what they see because, gee, their good friend, person they voted for, teacher of their children, preacher of their sermons, etc., simply are such awesome people that they couldn't do it.

And besides, they say, evil stuff like that is only imagined in the minds of mentally ill people and it doesn't really happen. Which brings us to the next point: That mindset makes whistle blowers into the enemy and they are castigated by well-intentioned good people.

Third, Evil is happy that good people cannot conceive of evil and will constantly exploit their good natures and lack of understanding of the full scope of human conditions.

Lastly, evil exists across all strata be it economic, class, nationality, color, religion (including atheism), politics, job description, education level, gender, and age. Evil will use everything available to it to fool victims in order to get away with it. Evil has no conscience. Evil seeks its own interests; no other interest does it acknowledge as being relevant. Evil will even accuse other Evils to divert attention away from themselves.

Milton Friedman: People have responsibility to fix problems.

And they do it best in a free market. It is possible this is Bernie Sanders in the video as the gap in the front teeth sure do seem to match up. In any case, Milton makes the case for free markets, capitalism, and small government.

Democrat fear-mongering at its finest.

by Angela K. Durden
Technology inventor protecting creator's copyrights. Business writer, novelist, songwriter, and Citizen Journalist.




The headline above anchored a long article that is super silly on its face.

The body of the article is full of untruths and had to be written by a Big Government flack, that is, a Pussy-Hat Wearing Politically Correct Liberal Democrat RINO Socialist Fascist Commie [PHWPCLIDRSFC's] crying into their latté. You'll crack up when you read it. 

The headline is ludicrous and the article itself could only be believed by PHWPCLIDRSFCs. That anybody in this day and age of digital transmission could believe there is only one copy of anybody's tax return and that it could be held in a safe in one location, well, one must laugh at the naivety of those folks.

The entire article smells.


Furthermore, individual privacy is a protection against government abuse, but that hasn't stopped the IRS from ever looking at anybody's tax return because that's the business they are in. They never take anybody's word for anything — and don't we know it.

The premise of this article assumes that Trump sent in one written packet of a tax return with the envelope marked "I promise it is accurate, so you don't have to look at it and if you do, why I'll drop a bomb on ya. Check coming soonish."

Ridiculous.

Beware the collapse of the IRS? 


Really? Why should I beware the collapse of one of the biggest for-hire by PHWPCLIDRSFCs bully agencies on the planet? I wish its ability to illegally use its power was enforced. 

As it is now, the IRS has been used by Democrats, RINOs, and other socialist fascist commies to punish, harass, control, and otherwise slow the progress of small business owners, big business, researchers, professors, teachers, parents, concerned citizens, and non- or not-for-profits who do not agree with them.

Worse, these same broad and illegal powers are also used by Democrats, RINOs, and other socialist fascist commies to reward, support, and otherwise embolden foreign and domestic terrorist organizations and individuals of every ilk who seek to destroy the rights and freedoms of all US citizens by pushing agendas that are anti everything, like Christian, Jewish, peace loving, and so forth.

But why now this article?


The entire reason this false article showed up now with its fear mongering is because of the big push to give tax breaks to the middle class. A class, by the way, that is the largest source of funds the government has.

Big Government hates the idea their party fund could dry up. I say let it dry up and let them live on a believable budget like the rest of us.

No sense of humor at all: Bruce and Caitlyn bathroom doors.

by Angela K. Durden
Technology inventor protecting creator's copyrights. Business writer, novelist, songwriter, and Citizen Journalist.



Allen, Texas. Best known for...well, not sure what the town is known for in the past. But it made the news online in The Daily Wire when Dodie's Place Cajun Bar & Grill did some decorating.

Screenshot from DailyWire.com
Dodie's is the place "Where All Your Friends Are!" What a friendly place. Lots of humor and laughing and food and such as that. And forty TVs to watch all four major sport groups. 

Then the Politically Correct Liberal Democratic RINO Socialist Fascist Commies [PCLDRSFCs] came to eat — and the Texas Patty Melt hit the fan. 

The PCLDRSFCs said that Dodie's was turning transgender women into a joke. The Dallas Morning News’ Dom DiFurio saw the signs. He publicly said that the signs stigmatize transgenders and play into the area's conservative audience, and that is why he felt he should report this story.

I call bull on Dom's reason. 


Dom saw the doors and said, "Sweet! Inflammatory story falls right into my lap. Ratings uptick. More onscreen face time for meeeeeeThank you, Universe!"

I say Dom thanked Universe because I'm not sure if he believes in God or not and, well...I wouldn't want to offend him by implying that, now would I?

Anyway, Dodie's simply was exercising their right to free speech and in no way did they put up signage that made fun of Jenner or trans-people. In fact, you saw the pictures above. Don't you agree that both the photos were excellent shots of each of Jenner's primes?

But that doesn't matter to the perpetually offended PCLDRSFCs, and Dodie's had to explain to them that they were just starting a discussion about the negative influence of political correctness.

What is even funnier — and sadder — is that someone else said that that great and awesome picture of Caitlyn Jenner was going to make other transgender women feel ugly because they weren't that far along in their process. So, instead of celebrating the successful end of a long and torturous journey, they whine "she's too pretty and I'm not."

And that statement, ladies and gentlemen, explains why the perpetually offended PCLDRSFCs are nuts. Oops...did I just say that? Let me clarify. It explains the psychosis of political correctness.

White man shoots up white church, Air Force gets the blame. Gun-control spin ramps up.


by Angela K. Durden
Technology inventor protecting creator's copyrights. Business writer, novelist, songwriter, and Citizen Journalist.

So, a guy passes a Federal background check and legally buys weapons because the Air Force fails to do the proper paperwork after he beats his wife and child. 

I agree. The Air Force should have paid attention to the details. But the guy was going to do what the guy was going to do and nothing would have stopped him from obtaining guns illegally, or making a bomb and driving up to the door of the church and boom!

The shooter was angry and was intent on doing as much harm as possible.

Thank goodness a law-abiding citizen came and shot him. 


No law can stop someone, such as this shooter, from doing evil deeds. And after each and every one, we see headline after headline quoting citizens saying, "They should just get rid of all the guns." Yes, these are usually crying when they say it. These people might also believe that the reason a woman gets raped is because she's showing some ankle.

I'm not hard-hearted. I'm not a cold bitch. But I am pragmatic.

Every dictator and terrorist, and any government that marches toward fascist, socialist, or communist methods (no matter what they call themselves) always begins their control by disarming law-abiding citizenry. That there is major push back in the US on this topic should be a source of comfort.




Constitutional protections are being gutted on many fronts, including free speech, rights to property ownership, and more by Tech Giants, The Majors and The Bigs of media and entertainment, and organized religion, all of whom aim to keep people from thinking for themselves.

The Politically Correct Liberal Democrat RINO Socialist Fascist Commies are all working hard to get control of your property and take away your rights all in the name of One World Government. I am not a fan of that and won't support it. Freedom always comes with a price. Some say that price is high and unacceptable.

But I know what price the lack of freedom exacts and only the Politically Correct Liberal Democrat RINO Socialist Fascist Commies like that equation.

HTTPS is fake security.

by Angela K. Durden
Technology inventor protecting creator's copyrights. Business writer, novelist, songwriter, and Citizen Journalist.

A woman on a social media portal made the statement that https should be the "baseline to play" in order to have a website. Here is my reply to her about why she is wrong:


"Https as a baseline to play" is an incorrect assumption on your part. First, your statement assumes every site that is not https is a thief. They are not.

Second, your statement assumes that regular folks who use third-party payment processors such as PayPal, Stripe, and other merchant card processors are not handling their business properly when, in point of fact, they are handling it well by employing vendors who do have https certification and who go even further: Vendors deploy massive and ever-updated security measures to combat fraud and hackers.


Third, your assumption is that somehow https magically grants online protections. It does not. In fact, data protection is only as good as a SaaS company builds it and no https certification even looks at any company's software to determine how well they've built it. I know this as I have a SaaS company. The protections we've built in I won't even tell you, but data is extremely safe. Though it is rated https, we did not build our site to get that rating and did not even figure it into the why or how we built our internals.


Fourth, your "baseline to play" argument does not solve the problem of fraud. Anybody can write a bad check. At checkouts, cashiers regularly swipe a special pen across money to determine if it is legitimate currency. Hackers never stop and if you want to talk about https protections, what the hell happened with Equifax? Who left the barn door open there, huh? 


Fifth, let me predict further that in 10 years the Equifax's of the world will not exist. We are now seeing the downward spiral of Tech Giants. The more Google and Amazon aren't moving money through their systems, the more they squeeze the little guy for more cash for an iffy service that adds no value. And that is why Google is requiring https certification: Additional revenues they need, and they need it badly.

Give me some men who are stout-hearted men.

You who have dreams
If you act, they will come true 
To turn your dream to a fact
It's up to you
If you have the soul and the spirit
Never fear it, you'll see it through.
Hearts can inspire other hearts with their fire.
For the strong obey when a strong man 
shows them the way.
OHHHHHH! 
Give me some men who are stout-hearted men
Who will fight for the right they adore.
Start me with ten who are stout-hearted men,
And I'll soon give you ten thousand more.
Oh, shoulder to shoulder, and bolder and bolder
They grow as they go to the fore.
Then there's nothing in the world can halt or mar a plan
When stout-hearted men can stick together man to man.
