The DESFM Diet

Following is part of a series of Diet and Supplemental Cookbooks to aid those of us who need it most.

All Free of Charge.

You’re Welcome.

This Series will begin with:

The DESFM Diet.

DESFM is time-tested, Scientifically Proven and 100% Guaranteed to work… or your money back.

It is an incredibly simple two-step system designed to have the least impact regarding changes to what you eat.

Grab a pen. Make sure you’re sitting down… this is powerful stuff.  Remember, “Diet” simply means what an individual consumes.  “Diet” does not imply “temporary”.  It is what, and how, you are eating right now.  If you’re a fat guy like me, then your “diet” is potato chips and m&m’s washed down with a tall cold glass of milk.  Got it?  But I’m about to share the secret on how to change that!

Ready?

DESFM:

Step 1.) Don’t Eat So F*cking Much.
Step 2.) Repeat step one.

Occasionally people have a difficult time with DESFM as they lack the discipline to follow the rules.

So, Tomorrow we’ll present you the free supplement to the DESFM diet; The All you can eat One Ingredient Cookbook!

If you haven’t already, be sure to explore the benefits of the Bourbon Diet.

Cheers, I’m off to apply the Bourbon Diet right now!


The Unbearable Meaness of Meaning

I’ve found when I ask for definitions to be applied to words, and meaning applied to assertions, that I’m “mean”.  At least that is the accusation.  And, I think I’m okay with it.

Apparently none of us, or at least not the majority, want to be held accountable for anything… ever.  It seems we wish to live in a world where everything means whatever we want it to, when we want it to.  I guess life is easier when it revolves around us and how we feel about it, not necessarily what it is.

Fine.  I’ve been known to indulge in a little “checking out” from time to time.  I have also spun bad situations into goods one even though I know they were still bad, but this is an epidemic.

This self-centered approach to everything permeates our society and we are seeing the results.  We demonstrate our unwillingness to deal with reality by exhibiting this type of behaviour.  We also protect ourselves from judgement by being purposefully vague.

We simply do not want to think about what we think.  (Intellectual laziness is… well… lazy.  And easy.)

Instead we want to have others praise us for the “achievement” of having an opinion.

We expect others to be so impressed by this accomplishment that we demand they overlook any deficit of substance which might elevate the opinion to being worthy of consideration.

Without fail the speaker will attempt to stop a search for meaning with one of the following:

“Who are you to judge?” (Response: Who would you prefer?)  “That’s just my opinion.” (Response: Yes… it is just an opinion.)  “We’ll have to agree to disagree.” (Response: I think we should agree to agree to disagree, then agree then not. To Infinity… na, na, na.  This one is so childish is hurts.  You can recognize your difference in opinion, but agreeing to it is a completely different position.  “I think Ax murdering your family is bad.” – “Well I think we should just agree to disagree.” Hmmm…)

All I have ever asked is that each of us, as individuals, Make an Effort to understand why we think what we think.  This effort should be ongoing throughout our life.

This blog has never been about agreement, conversion or solving the worlds problems… it has been about meaning.  What are we, our leaders and those we elevate to positions of authority actually saying… if anything.

So… I’m mean. I’m very, very mean.  If that’s the definition, then I will be proudly mean in all things.

To me, an opinion should resemble a Fine Bourbon.  It is the difference between meaning and meanness.

A Fine Bourbon does not appear before us because we wish it so. It is born of education, consideration, reason, rational, trial and error, all repeatedly applied to the fine materials nature provides.  Without context it is harsh and burns the novice mouth, very mean indeed.  Appreciation comes with experience and knowledge.  With meaning, leading to understanding, it becomes a demonstration of conceptual brilliance.  (And, it makes everyone around you more tolerable.)


Uh-Oh…

Could it be that the CIA was involved in investigating journalists who said mean things about the current Administration?

The official response of “outrageous and baseless” leads me to believe… yes.

But why would I believe such a thing?

On what would I Base my assertion on?

Because we know it would be Outrageous if:

The IRS used its authority to intimidate groups the Administration disagrees with.

The DEA was using information gleaned from Domestic Spying on Innocent American’s.

The NSA was conducting the Domestic Spying program collecting information on Innocent Americans to be kept forever.

The CIA was selling Missiles to the Syrians and running them through Benghazi only to lose track of them.

The DOJ investigated Journalists.

The BATFE was up-arming Mexican Drug Cartels who then killed hundreds of innocent Mexican’s and American Law Enforcement Officers.

The Executive Branch was illegally writing Law and then furthering the illegality by providing immunity from those Laws to Unions and Government Employees.

The Federal Reserve was printing money faster than history has ever witnessed and then using it to buy Bonds.

The Very Senator and Congressman who caused the Real Estate Collapse escaped Imprisonment and, astonishingly, wrote legislation to “solve” the problem they created.

The Defense Department was being run by a Civilian Presidential Advisor whose decisions have thus far lead to the death of an Ambassador.

The TSA started showing up at Sporting Events to grope spectators when taking a break from Stealing Stuff out of your suitcase.

The DHS was advertising how to gain access to the United States without being a Citizen then allowing those who came to roam freely.

The Local Police were being Militarized with Federal Assistance.

The Democrat Party suddenly found Sexual Harassment to be offensive.

The list goes on, but my fingers are tired…

I Agree, it would be Outrageous.

However, Baseless?

We’ll see.

There’s guaranteed to be more yet to come, all brought to you by a group of people who find a 5% reduction in the Growth of Spending “Draconian”, Socialized Medicine “A Right”, the Constitution “Limiting” and the Second Amendment “Outdated”.

It’s becoming difficult to find anything NOT to believe anymore.

It’s time for bourbon surrounded by glass.
