I was listening to a podcast the other day on Lucid Dreaming and the girl had a charming phrase that I simply MUST steal: imaginary readers. She referred to her imaginary listeners, but you work with what you have, right?
So you are all now Official Imaginary Readers(TM). And a couple of Non-Imaginary Readers. Congratulations, who would have expected a promotion so early in the day, and on a Tuesday at that!!
Have any of you IR’s (did you see what I did there…?) seen or heard of David Goggins? MoFo holds the world record for number of pullups in 24 hours, over 4,000! Let me tell you, I would be lucky to be able to do 4 in 24 hours! Here he is nowadays:
And here he was prior to getting after some fitness:
I doubt I have permission to use his image so he’ll just have to find me a sue me, but in the meantime I must give him a big Hee Haw Salute!!
Which brings me to a point of order today: It is the very folks in Hee Haw that are routinely mocked, derided and vilified by the Hive. They are generally portrayed as white, male, patriarchal, backwoods, redneck, nosepicking bumpkins. Inbred if lucky.
They are cast this way because in living memory, they are and have been the most gentle, self-effacing folks around. Able to laugh at themselves and their weaknesses whether moral, intellectual, physical, etc.
They are and have been generally generous having been raised in an era where generosity meant you reached into your own pocket, not someone elses. Many, now gone, were raised during ‘Depression I’ and knew true want.
Not ‘I cant get a good internet connection’ want or even a ‘I need tire for the car’ want. No, they knew the deep want of hunger and insecurity. The deterioration of the nation into near Argentina like conditions where hunger walked hand in barefoot hand with the population, or most of them anyway.
Clothes were at a premium, as was shelter. Todays tent cities are squalid to be sure, but nothing like a tar paper shack in 1937. Luck would have it made of corrugated tin. I know a woman who was raised in a re-purposed chicken coop. Now that’s called recycling you whiny bastards!!
These same folks are pilloried with impunity at the peril of the Hive for it is the Hive policies and patron saints that brought on Depresion I. If you insist on existentially threatening them again you are going to awaken the Saxon. And as the saying goes, when minorities riot they destroy neighborhoods. When whites riot they destroy civilizations.
So please, find goodness where you can and appreciate it on its own terms. David Goggins is an amazing athlete, and a damned fine motivational speaker. Hee Haw was a great show about a better time. Its ok to be white, just like its ok to be any other color of the rainbow. Dont fuck it up by pushing your luck.
