A bit of self reflection and other things…

So far, all of my posts have been political in nature, mostly because I love politics.  I’ve decided that I would create a post a bit about my life, what I have going on and some other things.

I’ve started college this last semester, pursuing a degree so that I can be a high school history/government teacher.  I know that there are many things wrong with the public school systems in this country but I love those subjects and I truly believe that I may be able to help to show at least some of the kids how important knowledge of our past is.

About four months ago, the woman I was dating dumped me.  We dated for about six months but this was the first serious relationship I’ve had.  She was everything I’ve ever looked for in a woman.  She was funny, beautiful, awesome sense of humor.  She loved zombie movies and horror movies as much as I did.  She smoked cigars, she had great taste in music.  She was artistic and she understood me and accepted me for who I was.

I always kept a bit of myself closed off to the women that I’ve dated over the years.  I never really opened up and let them into my world and let them see who I really was.  I guess it was because I never really connected with any of them on that level.  It wasn’t until Jennifer that I actually felt that connection.

Every moment I spent with her was amazing for me.  When we were together, even if the end of the world was nigh, I would have greeted it with a smile.  Due to circumstance beyond either of our control, she had to move back to her parents house which was a good three hour drive away.  We said that we would still see one another but alas, that was to never be.  One day she sent me a text that it was best that we break up.  I kind of knew that it was coming but it still hurt.

I think that for the first time in my life, I have experienced depression.  I was just not motivated any longer to do anything.  I dropped off going to Krav Maga, I stopped going to the gym, I stopped writing and I just couldn’t crawl my way out of this funk that I was in.

Lately though, I have started to find my way out.  I’ve been trying to go back to Krav when I could.  I attended a seminar over the last weekend that concentrated on handgun, rifle and shotgun defenses.  The second day was to be anti-carjacking, anti-hostage, and active shooter scenarios.  Unfortunately for me, when I woke up for it Sunday morning, I could barely move.  I guess that is what I get for not attending all those months.

A Gold’s Gym is opening just down that street and I intend to get a membership and get back into that habit as often as I can.  I am also going to change my diet because I’m not getting younger and the older I get, the harder it will be to burn the excess fat I have stored around my midsection.

College is going well and I am happy that I have finally enrolled.  I have a high A in my Writing class which makes me extremely happy.  Next semester I plan on taking a math class, possibly Government and an online course, though I don’t know which one yet.

I have started to write again.  I am almost finished writing the second act of the screenplay that I have been working on and I am pretty happy with how it is developing.  My zombie novel is progressing also and I have passed the ten thousand word mark on it. 

I am also working on a short story that is science fiction/horror in nature.  An explorer vessel searching for unclaimed solar systems for the major corporations to exploit translates into such a system.  They find the lost Ark ship Eternity orbiting a moon around the largest gas giant in the system.  The move in to investigate, sure that they are about to become the richest, most famous crew in the galaxy.  The ship is dead and they enter to investigate what could have happened.  A survey of the surface of the moon shows one of the shuttles and a structure.  A crew is sent to investigate that while others investigate the derelict ship.  Untold horrors await them all.

Once I finish those three projects, I have a few others that are just ideas at the moment and need to be fleshed out.  Three more screenplays are rattling around in that space called my mind and a few more short stories, a science fiction short involving a planet where a zombie outbreak happens and the planet is turned into a hunting reserve where you get to hunt the zombies.

There is still a part of me that misses Jennifer terribly but I am healing and I know I am healing.  Every day is a bit better and even though I will move on and possibly meet another who was as great as she, there will always be that place in me that she occupied, that is hers and that no one else will ever be able to fill.

Pissing off Progressives and Winning Arguments

I really do love to debate or even argue with people about subjects that I am passionate about.  Be it the intrusion of the government into our lives, the 2nd Amendment or anything of that nature.  Arguing with Progressives can be fun when they actually have somewhat valid points to argue.  Pissing them off can be quite easy, especially for someone like me and some of the views I have on certain subjects. 

How do you know you are winning an argument with a Progressive?

1)  They start to attack you spelling or grammatical errors.  No one is perfect, everyone makes mistakes.  This is why professional writers have Beta readers.  They catch those errors for the Author.  So when someone starts to point out your small spelling or grammatical errors, you know that you’ve won the argument because they no longer have a leg to stand on. 

2)  They insult you in some way.  The most common I have is they call me a redneck or hillbilly or something along those lines.  Again, they don’t have anyway to refute your argument, so they attack you.

3)  You know you’ve really won the argument when they call you a racist.  They pull this out when they have nothing valid to say and are trying to shut you up.  They may come out and directly call you a racist or they may hint at it.  Compare you ideas to something that can be racist.  What they fail to understand is that we are all members of the human race and what they do is show their prejudice to others that are not the same skin tone or belief system that they have.  When they pull the race card, the argument is over because you have one.

Of course there are other ways to know that you’ve won an argument with a Progressive but these are examples from my personal experiences.

Recently, I’ve been much more active on Facebook arguing my ideas against Progressives.  There are a number of news stations that I follow and every time there is an article on the 2nd Amendment or an intrusion of the government into our lives or something that peeks my interest, I will read the comments and if necessary attack.

Not long ago, I received a private message from some Progressive wimp who lives either in Portland, Oregon or Austin, Texas.  I’m pretty sure I was arguing our sacred 2nd Amendment rights with this moron.  I must have really gotten under his skin because he sent the following messages to me:

  • Brandon M

     

    hey big boy I hope you get testicular cancer man! god forbid you ever have a child and bring him into this world, by the way, you’re a scumbag from Houston! I am an Austin native, get the fuck out of my town! oh and if I see you in Public in Austin which I will recognize you by that sorry excuse for a beard, I won’t have any problem justifying a display of my sidearm, after all this is Texas right? let’s have a good ol fashioned duel!

  • Wednesday
  • Joseph Capdepon II

     

    Thanks for the threat. You will love when Austin PD shows up at your house.

  • Brandon M

     

    Coward

     

    Plain and simple

  • Joseph Capdepon II

     

    Explain that to the cops.

  • Brandon M

     

    No explanation necessry. No crime committed

  • Joseph Capdepon II

     

    Yeah. You threatened my life guy. I can and will press charges.

  • Brandon M

     

    I said justification. Be a man

     

    Not to mention im about to block and delete you

     

    I did not contact the police because this is just a keyboard warrior as one of my friends said.  I’m sure he was sweating bullets thinking he was in trouble and I hope that he develops an ulcer worrying about it.  I’m not worried about him doing anything.  If by some odd chance of fate, he were to run into me, he would continue on his way and not say a damn word to me.  He sure as hell would not pull his gun as he claims.

    So keep pissing off those Progressives.  Keep attacking their lies and never let up.  You can’t change their minds but maybe you will show someone who is one the fence and not very educated about the subject some Truth and bring them over to our side.  If they play dirty, you play dirty.

The Twenty Rules of Racism for the Left and Right

This list was created by Col. Tom Kratman and in his words “widest possible dissemination authorized and encouraged.”

The Left’s 20 Rules of Racism:

1. If you believe that general intelligence exists, is heritable and at all testable for, you’re a racist.

2. If you point out that liberal philosophies and programs intended to have a good impact have had a disproportionately bad impact on the ethnicities targeted by liberals, you’re a racist.

3. If you notice that other cultures have some problems, you’re a racist.

4. If you notice your own culture has had some successes, you’re a racist.

5. If you try to identify subcultural problems, you’re a racist. If the problems existed or got worse under liberalism, see item 2, above.

6. If you’re mainstream American culture, and don’t hate that culture, you’re a racist.

7. If you’re capable of noting unpleasant facts about subcultures and discussing them without your brain fogging, you’re a racist.

8. If you won’t kowtow and grovel as soon as someone accuses you of racism for one of the reasons above or below, you’re a hopeless racist.

9. If you do not believe that mankind is a tabula rasa for liberals to make whatever they think would be good to make of man, this week, you’re a racist.

10. If you don’t take personal responsibility for all the evils of slavery, you’re a racist. This is true even if you only arrived from Poland last week.

11. If you’re white, you’re a racist.

12. If you’re white and just arrived from Poland last week and don’t accept that you’re a racist, you’re a racist.

13. If you try to interject logical thought into a discussion of culture, you’re a racist.

14. If you refuse to admit culture is a racial matter, and a liberal wants to conflate the two, you’re a racist.

15. If you believe that race and culture are indistinguishable and a liberal decides that you shouldn’t conflate the two, you’re a racist.

16. If you believe that black or Hispanic girls who are paid by liberal inspired programs from the age of 13 to have babies will have babies, you’re a racist.

17. If you believe that _any_ girls of whatever color who are paid to have babies will then have babies but then, insensitively, observe that a smaller percentage of white girls do, certainly because they haven’t been targeted for as much “help” from liberals, you’re a racist.

18. If it doesn’t bother you that the truth offends liberals, you’re a racist.

19. If your name is Tom Kratman and you write and in your writing your heroes and heroines tend to be from minorities while your villains are white liberals, you’re still a racist.

20. If you read The Bell Curve, you’re a racist. On the other hand, if you didn’t read it but wrote a scathing review on Amazon anyway you might not be a racist provided you take personal responsibility for 300 years of slavery even if you just arrived from Poland last week.

 

The Right’s Twenty Rules of Racism:

1. Anyone responsible for three hundred years of slavery would have to be a lot older than you and me.

2. There has to be some genetics in “racism’s” DNA, some DNA in its gene pool, or it just isn’t racism.

3. Racism could be eliminated in the United States if we could just eliminate the white liberals who so plainly depend on it so much and do so much to keep it going.

4. Reality isn’t racist: The reality is that there are pond-scummy gallows bait in every group. Some of those will be more of a problem to their own group than to you (see Rule 14, below). Some will be more of a problem to you precisely because you’re not a member of their group. It is wise, not racist, to avoid the latter. In Boston, this may be referred to as the “Evelyn Wagler-George Pratt Rule,” and that’s not code. Odd exception to half of Rule 4: Jesse Jackson would much rather be followed by a white on the streets of DC, at night, than a black.

5. There have been two instances in recent history where the concept of “honorary white” held sway. One was in apartheid South Africa where, for example, Japanese were considered “honorary white.” The other was when, in relation to the Trayvon Martin shooting, the American mainstream media made Hispanic George Zimmerman an “honorary white.” This is not entirely coincidence since (see Rule 18) the very liberal American media is as racist in their way as ever the Afrikaner Broederbond was in its.

6. Nobody really thinks whites are as evil as portrayed by white liberals and black demagogues. If they really thought so, they’d be too afraid to ever leave the house, since a) there are a lot more whites, b) those whites are much better armed, c) they’re more likely to be veterans of the Army’s and Marine Corps’ ground gaining combat arms, and d) they have an historically demonstrated cultural aptitude for mass, organized violence.

7. People who insist you’re speaking in code insist on it because they believe it’s true. They believe it’s true because they really do speak in code and can’t imagine anyone who does not speak in code. It’s not racist to think those people are idiots, nor to note that they’re mostly white. (Exception to rule: When conservatives talk about guns and zombies? Especially in terms of using the former to kill the latter? Yeah; “zombie” is code for “liberals of any color.” See Rule 6, above.)

8. It’s not racist to note that white liberalism managed to do in about thirty years something that three hundred years of slavery could not, seriously damage the black family, generally though not universally, and ruin it completely over wide swaths.

9. Speaking of slavery, the bulk of slave raiding and trading in Africa was black, usually Islamic black (see Rule 16, below), on black. The Arabic word for black and slave is the same, “Abd.” And the first registered slave owner in Virginia was black. Pointing this out to liberals, white and black, is always fun.

10. It’s not racist to wish that our first black president had been Thomas Sowell.

11. The “Some of my best friends” defense against a charge of racism is no defense…unless it happens to be true. Sometimes it’s best expressed to a white liberal as, “You don’t have so much as a day in uniform, do you, dipshit?”

12. The system of education that white liberals have inflicted on inner city blacks is a crime against humanity. No amount of money that they toss at it helps to overcome the elimination of discipline liberalism has caused. It’s neither racist to note this…nor wrong.

13. The various college and university minority “studies” programs, because they give a useless pseudo-education, and at very high cost in both money and time, are racist in their effects.

14. Most black crime is black on black crime. It is racist in its effects to deprive the black community of the social good that comes from executing black criminals that prey on other blacks.

15. It takes a white liberal idiot (Lord, forgive us our redundancies) not to understand the difference between casual sex with a member of another race and marrying and investing one’s entire reproductive effort in a member of another race. See, e.g., http://www.tomkratman.com/yoli.html. Dipshits.

16. Islam is not a race. Detesting Islam is not racist. There is nothing in Islam which genetically compels either slightly tanned Palestinians or totally white English reverts to pray toward Mecca five times daily, to self-detonate in crowded squares and movie theaters, to find offense in just about everything, nor even to clitorectomize their women. Flash alert: Lysenko was wrong. Dipshits.

17. When a liberal accuses you of racism, rejoice; it means the dipshit knows he or she is losing.

18. The worst racists are liberals, mostly white ones, who assume that blacks and hispanics are so inferior that only affirmative action in perpetuity would give them a remotely fair chance. (That this also keeps a lot of liberal white social workers and bureaucrats employed is, of course, merely incidental. Ahem. Dipshits.)

19. There was a conservative argument for a kind of affirmative action. Unfortunately, all the money’s already been spent on employing white liberal social workers and bureaucrats, and we’re broke now, so that ship has sailed. Again, blame dipshit white liberals.

20. Screaming “Racism! Raaaacissssm!” on the part of a white liberal, when the matter in question has no DNA in its gene pool, no genetics in its DNA (see Rule 2, above), is the surest proof that said white liberal is genetically defective. And a dipshit. And it’s not racist to point this out.

Bob Costas is a Moron

Dear Bob Costas,

First, I would like to congratulate you for saying just about the most inane, ignorant thing I’ve heard in a while on television. “If the gun wouldn’t have been there, Belcher wouldn’t have killed his wife”, are you serious?

For you and the anti-gun morons who are so scared of inanimate objects, I guess it makes sense. After all, why would someone who obviously wants to murder someone else and then take their own life only use a gun? Obviously if the firearm was not there, he wouldn’t have done it.

Forget about the myriad of other objects in a house that could be used to kill or seriously harm someone. Forget about Belcher being a football player, which means he was most likely very fit and very strong and could have strangled his poor wife if he wanted to.

Seriously though, all you anti-gun morons, take a moment. Take a moment and walk through your home. Take a piece of paper and a writing utensil and make an inventory of every object that could be used to either kill or harm another human being. Then think about that list really hard.

What you anti-gun idiots fail to understand is that firearms are nothing but a tool to be used. They are an inanimate object. I can do as much harm with a screwdriver, car, baseball bat, tree branch that I could do with a gun. People who want to harm other people will find a way to do so, no matter what stupid laws you try to institute.

Remember, when you disarm law abiding citizens because you wet your panties every time you see one of those evil firearms, all you do is create a victim.

If you want to be a sheep waiting for the wolves to tear your throat out, so be it. Be the willing victim, but there are those of use who refuse to be victims. We refuse to let the wolves attack us. We will stand and we will fight, using all the tools at our disposal.

Not so sincerely,

Joseph Capdepon II

The not so average American’s political ideology

With an election only a month and a few days away, I’ve been going over in my mind where I stand politically.  Republican, Democrat, Left, Right, Conservative, Liberal, Progressive, Libertarian, the list goes on and on.  So many labels and yet none adequately fit me.  I try to think of the average American’s stance on things, and I try to fit myself into that.  I’m not average.  I don’t consider myself average, that does not fit me.  So this is my ideas on politics.  This is what I believe and for the record, I’m voting for Romney in November.

First, I am extremely proud to be a citizen of the United States of America.  I am proud to be a Texan, I have a Texas flag hanging on my wall.  I am proud to be a Southerner.  I have no shame in being a white male.  I don’t care how much melanin is present in your skin.  I judge people by their actions and how they present themselves to society.  I actually judge someone by their character.  So if you present yourself as a thug, ignorant piece of human filth, expect to be treated in that manner.  We are all responsible for our station in life.  You choose to remain ignorant or in poverty and filth.  Stop blaming someone else for your poor life choices, take responsibility and do something about it.  We all make mistakes, but the truly intelligent among us learn from those mistakes and become better members of society because of it.

I am not a Christian but I respect the beliefs of others, so long as they do not try to shove them down my throat. I identify as Asatru, or heathen. I won’t go into why, but it is what calls to me and makes sense to me in this wonderful universe we live in. I have no issues with the sexuality of my fellow Americans. I don’t care who you choose to live or have sex with, as long as it is between two consenting adults. Should homosexuals have all the rights and privileges that straight couples have? Of course. I personally believe that marriage should be an institution of the respective churches and that all adults should get civil unions. You go to the court house, file your papers, swear before a judge and you are done. You have all the rights and privileges. Then later if you want your marriage ceremony in your church of choice, then do so. It is time for everyone to grow up, on both sides of that argument. Quit arguing over the one word, delete that word from the argument and there is no argument. It’s so simple.

I believe that abortion is a terrible thing. Pro-life and pro-choice are terrible labels to use. I am pro-baby. I see abortion as what it is, murder, plain and simple. So spare me your right to do what you want with your body line. What about the rights of the child growing in that womb? Who protects them? How many Einstein’s, Picasso’s, Rembrant’s, Shakespeare’s have been murdered in the womb?

I am an avid supporter of the Second Amendment. I believe that it is the right, no, it is the duty of every able bodied American citizen to own and be proficient with a firearm. Be it a rifle, shotgun, or pistol. I believe it is our right as American citizens to be able to defend ourselves from those that would do us harm, be they criminals or a tyrannical government. The Founding Fathers understood what they were doing when they added this Amendment to the Bill of Rights. I am also one of the crazy types that believes I should be able to own fully automatic weapons without the hassle that currently exists. To rail against the Second Amendment and propose “common sense” legislation is a slap in the face of every law abiding citizen in this country. As we all know, criminals do not obey the law, but gun legislation is not about stopping criminals, it’s about creating a victim class and leaving citizens unable to defend themselves.

I believe that our government should be concerned mostly with two major things. National Defense and keeping the interstate highway system functioning. Most of the organizations, FFA, EPA, FDA, FCC, Department of Education, Department of Energy, and so on, should either be gotten rid of or seriously scaled back. Revert most things back to the states to deal with. Take the current health care debacle. Let the market decide what happens. Remove the restrictions from health insurance companies operating across state lines. There should not be fifty different Blue Cross/Blue Shield companies. There should be one. You want health care costs to go down? Create a climate that will make it happen.

We should be energy independent by now. There should be nuclear plants all across this nation. The natural resources located beneath our soil should be exploited. Companies will sink money into alternate methods of energy production, they do not need government funds to do so, but at the same time, let them exploit what is here. Let them build nuclear plants and refineries. Let the United States of America stand on its own when it comes to oil.

Create an environment that is healthy for people to start businesses in. Reform the outrageous tax code to something that even a high school graduate could understand. Remove restrictions and business will flourish. Stop taxing those that create jobs and create wealth. Let them do what they do best, invest their money in business and make more money. Even this high school graduate with no college education can figure that out.

I believe in a strong military. I think we should be able to stand up to any enemy on this planet and be able to completely and utterly destroy them. We should not care about making anyone on this planet happy. Those that would do us harm should fear what will happen to them and their people if they cross that line. It is time to take the gloves off and wage total and complete war against our enemies. No more hearts and minds. Destroy our enemy and come home. Make them fear us. If the United States government wants to play the empire game, then we really need to play it for keeps.

Cut back on government programs. All of them. Eliminate those that are unnecessary. Again, let the states take over in certain areas. If the various states decide they want to expand welfare and other such programs, then so be it, until the voters in those states elect Representatives who will change it.

All laws passed by Congress shall be no longer than five pages long and should be understood by an average citizen without the help of a team of lawyers.

Crack down on the immigration problem on our borders. Treat the problem as it is. Now this I am sure is going to piss some people off. Those that wish to immigrate to this country shall learn the language. To be a citizen, one should be able to read, write and understand English. No more documents in multiple languages. If you go to a government agency for something, you get one document, in English. No other languages. You can keep your culture and whatever else you want, but it’s time that you assimilate into this nation. Learn the language, adapt the customs.

Stop the War on Drugs, the War on Poverty and so on. Use the resources we have to effectively battle the cartels. Poverty will only change when people are educated. Everyone has the same chance in this country. It is our decisions that effect where we go in life. Education and breaking the cycle of blaming others for one’s own short comings will break the cycle of poverty.

This is just a part of my own personal beliefs. Where do you think I fit in on the scale of political thought? I consider myself to be on the Right, Conservative, Libertarian in some of my ideas. I want a smaller, less intrusive government. I want people to be personally responsible for themselves. I don’t want some idiot from the government telling me how to live my life, what I can or cannot do. I know what is best for me and should be able to choose my own path. If I learn from my mistakes and prosper than great for me. If I fail, then it is on my shoulders and no others. Unfortunately, there are large portions of the populace that do not.

So in the end, this is a bit of what makes up my political thought. I know that no one will agree with me and I really don’t care. I’m tired of being nice. So take from this what you will. After all, it is just one man’s opinion.
