Just what is a low life?

September.27. 2018

So I found out the other day that the no-collusion Twitter guy has some other choice words in his vocabulary besides the word ‘tremendous.’

Just what is a low-life?

Here’s my definition.

It’s someone who sleeps with porn stars.

Someone who can’t say something without lying.

Someone who will sell out his country for a few bucks (well, maybe a few billion bucks.)

Someone who denigrates everyone with childish insults.

Someone who gets laughed at and don’t even know he’s the joke.

Double-think 2

September.12. 2018

Still on the subject of double-think, today, there was another casualty in the latest witch hunt raging in the nation.

The classic definition of a witch hunt is of course any judicial process by lynch mob.

All it needs is an accuser and a mob, and the accused is guilty beyond doubt.

No evidence needed, no cross examination.

The latest national exercise in mass hysteria was triggered by a couple of real sleazeball types who used their position to perpetrate their crimes on their victims.

But their guilt, especially the one that was actually tried in a real court of law should not be an excuse for the current assault on our justice system.

Because things are not always in black and white.

There’re a huge variety of factors, not to mention human deviousness, that can come into play.

I have written about the Potiphar’s wife principle, where the victim actually became the accused.

But there’s also the factor of sex as currency, which I have detailed earlier.

People are all too willing to use whatever assets they have to try to get what they want, and woe befall those who are the targets of their intentions and did not deliver.

And if they do deliver, as in the case of a famous morning talk show host and his sidekick, well, it’s a happy story of a workplace romance that worked out!

As someone commented, a metoo that worked out!

In the meantime, while sex is being peddled everywhere—you don’t have to go far, just turn on the TV, or go to a concert, or a ballgame—this self-righteous indignant witch hunt rages on.

Which reminds me of the poor bishop who had to apologize recently for unwittingly “groping” someone.

The first question any rational person would ask is, why would a sane person try to grope someone in front of live television and millions of viewers?

Shouldn’t the explanation of an accidental touching suffice?

Perhaps it says more about the accusers than the accused in this case.

People with one-track minds only see what they want to see.

If their minds are filled with sex, every act is interpreted in that light.

I know a thing or two about unhappy accidents.

With the current vogue in ultra low cleavages, I must admit it can be hard to know where to look these days. One thing I’ve learned is never to drop your gaze these days. You can look up or sideways but never down.

It’s the same double-think.

On the one hand, wear revealing attire to attract attention to yourself by showing off your physical assets, and on the other hand, crying foul if someone accidentally happens to look your way!

It’s that same one-track mind too.

Just because you have sex on your mind doesn’t mean that everyone else have sex on their minds too!

Double-think

September.11. 2018

When it comes to double-think, Americans do it better than anybody else. (As usual)

What is double-think?

It’s like double-speak, except you do it in your thinking.

Take for example, sex.

Sex is the major currency in America. You might say it’s the only currency in town. In America, that’s all you see and hear.

The reason is simple–America is about money and nothing sells better than sex.

But because it’s double-think, you have to be subtle about it, mustn’t be too obvious.

So what do skimpily clad girls have to do with ball games? They call them cheerleaders but why do you have to be clad in bikinis to cheer on the game?

Everywhere it seems, the message is clear.

Appeal to the basest instincts of man to sell and make more money. From cars to movies to music and ballparks and stadiums, even to automobile spare parts, you see the same marketing strategy at work–which is to peddle the charms of a certain gender group to get your attention.

I once told a friend that to stand out as a performer, you have to do something special and what did he say?

“Pull down your pants.”

Sure he meant it as a joke, but that’s exactly what everyone’s doing to make a buck.

And so I’m completely mystified at the current outcry about the objectification of a particular gender.

Objectification?

You must be kidding me.

It’s ALL about objectification.

Objectification is the name of the game.

Why else do you think people put on red lipstick, and strut around and wear skimpy clothes?

It’s classic double-think.

On the one hand, doing everything they can to present themselves as objects of desire, on the other hand, objecting to being seen as objects of desire.

If we’re really serious about not objectifying the gentle gender, perhaps a good place to start is in the ballgame. Take out those silly dancing girls who add absolutely nothing to the game except to distract.

To do anything else is to indulge in the biggest sport of all—double-think.
