The “cinnamon challenge”…

(Again I am reminded of this piece by something I learned last night.   Apparently there is a ‘thing’ called “Phone Dares” where one is paid by accepting a Dare and performing it on video for verification.  It’s fascinating to see biological imperatives in action and the way the Herd is driven to find ways to Thin itself… Originally posted: 042712)

Grappling with my boredom regarding the GOP primary and lying low, so to speak, until something caught my attention I’m provided a gift. It’s called the cinnamon challenge.
Apparently there is a “craze” on the Myface or MeToob, or whatever, that involves the swallowing of a spoonful of ground cinnamon. I see little difference in this action from uncle Bob eating himself into a diabetic coma… just more efficient.  Brilliant.
Just when I thought that we humans had come up with the most ingenious methods of self-destruction from “huffing” spray paint to auto-erotic affixiation, I am yet again surprised. (Well… not really.) The evolutionary process is relentless.
While I could make a number of additional suggestions that might require a little dark humor to appreciate, most of the best ones already have warning labels attached and as demonstrated by the latest “challenge” there is a real possibility that many individuals would give my suggestions a try.
I have mixed feelings regarding this behaviour. My very small and atrophied compassionate side does not want to see these folks kill themselves. My more practised rational side finds the whole phenomena interesting and possibly helpful in terms of removing these people from the gene pool by… How did Romney put it? Self deportation?…

I have long been an advocate for removing all warning labels on items such as beds and bleach as it is my belief that if you’re too stupid to know not to knock down a glassful, or start your campfire on it, then you fail the “should I reproduce?” test.
(I know there are children involved… but first, children cannot read… and second, shouldn’t have a yet established a Marlboro habit.)
So, I say “you go guys!”  And, “humanity thanks you.”

If you’re at a loss, or not particularly creative,`there are a great many little bottles of things in your spice cabinet you can try out. If you survive that space in your house I might suggest the garage be your next stop, or under the kitchen sink. If you can’t afford the necessary items there is always the spice and cleaning aisles at your local grocery store.
I can hear the “nanny-staters” screaming now about how there should be a law requiring an ID to purchase ground spices, or some other such nonsense.  (But NEVER to vote of course, that would be ridiculous.)

I think the best response should be to sit back and wait… do nothing. Eventually there will not be any of these people left and generations from now we’ll all be better for it.

UPDATE:

In a challenge to my statement that “children cannot read”, I have been reminded that in the United States you are considered a child until your 26th birthday.  – True… however, I would offer that given the performance of the public school system, the idea that a 26 year-old “child” cannot read remains extremely high and thus my point remains sound.


The Anti-Wilson?

So Who is Dr. Ben Carson?

Anytime the Left comes out with a full-throated scream directed at any individual regarding their “inappropriateness” or “ridiculous statements” without actually addressing those statements on their merit I become interested.

Very Interested.

Since there has been discussion about Dr. Carson being considered to run for President, let’s take a look at this man… versus a Liberal favorite; President Woodrow Wilson.

Both President Wilson and Carson are Doctors.

Both Wilson and Carson are very religious.

Both are considered brilliant by their peers.

That seems to be where the similarities end.

First, and most obvious, President Wilson is dead… Dr. Carson is not.

Woodrow Wilson was a product of a time when “new” thought regarding sub-humans and their need to be led, or “prevented”, was widely accepted among the Progressive Elite.

Ben Carson is a product of Liberty, Freedom and Individual rights paired with Free-Markets and Personal Responsibility.  These ideas seems to be accepted by a minority of us.

President Wilson was an ugly Racist and horrible Elitist.  Wilson was the Father of Progressivism and is directly linked to the unmatched, unanswerable and uncontrollable Leviathan our Government now represents.  His belief in the biological inferiority of non-white races motivated his Liberal thinking.  His tenet that the masses must be told what to do in every way was empowered by his feeling of Intellectual Superiority.  He put is political opponents in jail.  He made speaking out against his Administration a crime. He was a Tyrant.

Doctor Carson does not seem to believe these things… in any way.  Not in his words, his actions nor his writings.

So… without such beliefs, will Doctor Carson be embraced by Leftists worldwide?

Will the Media see the logic of Doctor Carson’s proposed approach to Health Care for everyone?  Might the merits of his approach to taxes be honestly debated even though he’s not a trained community organizer?  Or, will his statement be referenced only in regard to it’s “appropriateness”?  (Is dissent Patriotic just not appropriate? Should we ask Hillary.)

If Doctor Carson continues to speak up it is my belief that he will be the nail which must be pounded down.

Good Socialists cannot have a nail that sticks out…  I say good Socialists because Dr. Carson happens to be black.  And, if you follow the Media complex a black person must, by definition, be a Socialist.  If not, they are not “legitimately” black.  Let me ask you, how do they view Clarence Thomas, Condoleezza Rice, Herman Cain, J.C. Watts, Thomas Sowell, Allen West, Colin Powell pre-Obama endorsement… idiots all!

Dr. Carson is about to find his life very uncomfortable if the brief 24-hour reaction to his prayer breakfast speech is any indication.  The only reason the long knives have not come out already is due to the “interruption” by a psychotic ex-cop on a killing spree and President Obama’s State of the Union delusion.

So what will be the narrative?

The Left Wing Media will tell you, ad nauseam, that Dr. Carson does not believe in Evolution.

This is true in so far as he has not ‘accepted’ it.  He has said as much.

If you haven’t heard this yet, you’re about to.  In fact, I’m willing to bet that will be all you hear about the Doctor.

But I would ask you to consider if his “unorthodox” views have prevented him from being successful in his career as a Pediatric Neurosurgeon?  Has it prevented him from being given over 60 honorary Doctorates from Schools around the World and a Congressional Medal of Freedom?  Has it encumbered his status as a Doctor and a Scientist?  I am not a organized religion kind of guy… but I do not think that one’s religion prevents them from working within a framework that prevents government from mandating religious tests in order to serve.

In other words, the Separation of Church and State.

And, if belief in Religion makes one “stupid”, I only wish I was as “stupid” as Dr. Carson.

But don’t expect any of the above to get in the way of the mean-spirited campaign of personal destruction which is about to be levied upon Dr. Carson from the Democratic Socialists, and their Useful Idiots, making up the Vast Left Wing Conspiracy.

Please accept my condolences in advance Doctor.
