Mt. Bierstadt, 14,065 Feet

Happy Day Lieutenants!  The ole Captain climbed his first 14,000 ft peak, Mt. Bierstadt.


New blog added to the blogroll.

You may also be asking, "Hey Clarey, are the posts a little less meaty and kind of more linky?"

Yes, yes they are.  I'm traveling.  It's summer.  And the audio is probably going to suck for this week's podcast because I left the mic at home.   WHICH, if you haven't already, start downloading the podcasts because I think two more episodes and I'm archiving episodes 1-100 to free up space on the server.  After that I'm charging $40 if you wanted the archives mailed to you on thumbdrive.

Podcast Roadtrip

As you know I download and consume immense volumes of podcasts when roadtripping.  These two podcasts were of interest and note:

Stefan Molyneux The Fall of Chicago

DT & The Man on Cecil and the Circle Jerk of Leftist Life.

My Latest Defense for Carrying a Gun

I once had a middle aged elitist woman in a snobby suburb come up to me and ask me why I was carrying a gun.  I didn't realize it at the time, but she was one these psycho crusaderists who got off on having the rare opportunity to "display her wisdom and superiority" by trying to stump me with her "impervious" leftist logic.

Thinking she was genuinely interested I said, "In case I have to shoot somebody."

She then followed up, "But when would you ever have to shoot someone?"

I said, "At work.  I'm on call for security."

She then stepped back, said, "Oh, well thank you for your service." and left. 

It seemed odd, but once I had the hindsight to figure out what had transpired, I got pissed because it was just another worthless human being desperate to lecture somebody to validate her meaningless life.

So now, to prevent that from ever happening again, this is my response.

Looking for a Jon McNaughton Style Artist

Howdy All,

I am looking to commission a work of art from an artist who can paint like Jon McNaughton.

I would have hired Jon himself but after looking at his site, I realized he is very religious and my idea is going to be too risque for his tastes.

Anyway, this is a VERY serious piece I'm looking to commission as it has a lot of potential to make a very profound statement about today's society.  Consequently it also has the potential to make a lot of money AND bring fame to the person who paints it (though I guarantee NEITHER).  Because of this and my seriousness about it, I will also be requiring a contract that gives me the rights to the work and any copies, while the painter will get a percentage of the proceeds.



I need somebody who can paint in a realism art form so well that people's faces are clearly identifiable (there will be several politicians in the picture) and because of the severity of this painting I insist on a quality near, at or above Mr. McNaughton's work.

If you are interested or know somebody who is, please contact me and send me some samples of your work.

Thank you,

There Is No Stock Market, Just a Dump for Central Bank Money

I love it.  A company posts earnings that dropped 9.3% over the quarter, BUT...

the stock jumps 11%.

No, there's no stock market bubble here.

Escaping the Insanity

With the outright stupidity (and the implications of having a feral, mindless, zombie society) I decided to load up the car and head out west.  Within 2 hours of being in the Black Hills, all the strife and anger went away, and I did not see one SJW or frothing aged 40 something feminist at all.  Here is what I saw:

Just remember not to let them or the insanity get you down, and to enjoy the decline.

Ivy League Losing Its Luster?

In the end, reality wins.  No matter how rich or connected your parents.

Helping Out the Private Man

Hi All,

Some of you know him, some of you don't, but The Private Man recently underwent the removal of one of his eyes due to eye cancer.  He's recovered and trying to get back into the working world, but the delay between recovery (and obvious medical expenses) has left him low on cash.  He needs some to tide him over till he starts his job and for all the work he's done to help out the younger men out there, I can't think of a more deserving person to toss a couple bucks.  Anyway, the paypal donation image can be easily found on his site.

Many thanks,


What Cecil the Lion Tells Us About America

Cecil, the famous 13 year old lion, who was shot (which increasingly seems to be) illegally has made the news across the planet.  As more and more facts comes in it looks like the hunter, Walter Palmer, shot him illegally (though whether he did this knowingly is yet to be determined).

When the news broke and when I read the article, it seemed to me that once again the MSM was going to run with this story and the facts be damned.  There were statements made to villainize Dr. Palmer, but nothing confirmed for a fact.

"They lured the lion off of the reservation!" - Is that illegal?
"He paid $50,000 to hunt the lion!!!!" - Don't you usually have to pay a lot of money for safaris?
"You can't shoot a tagged lion!!!" - Really?  How do you know?

There were others, but my interest was piqued when nearly the entire planet decided to post his personal information online and protest at his house, many people making death threats.  And so naturally like any agitating realistic and principled person I went online, made a YouTube video and told people to stop being sheeple and think about how the media is potentially ruining an innocent man's life all to boost ratings.

Teh interwebz were having none of it.

Now, Dr. Palmer wasn't the only one getting death threats, but so was I.  And this of course, bathed in an endless list of brilliant and cogent arguments presented by the YouTube community about me "being a dumbass" or "a stupid fucker" and other arguments of intelligence, thought, and ponderance proving the quality of education the Millennial generation is receiving in college.  But it wasn't the death threats or names that forced me to pull the video (that comes with the territory), it was when they started posting the private data of Dr. Palmer that I now had a legal risk.  And so unfortunately the video had to come down.

Still, we don't need the video to realize a very important and vital lesson about the mental faculties of your average American.  And that lesson is they are no longer capable of logic, reason, empiricism or sanity.  Worse, they're so selfish and narcissistic, they happily put their emotions over principles and the rights of others.  With no proof (at that point in time) that Dr. Palmer was guilty of violating any law people were already threatening to kill him, ruin his career, and ruin his life.  Some were so far gone they said they didn't care about the legality of his kill, they just thought he should be punished for hunting.  And it is this principleless, amoral, mindless mob who put their emotions over, not just an individual's rights, but reality, facts, and truth that not only makes it difficult for the legal system to mete out justice, but is undermining our respective societies today.

The real story is not that poor Cecil was tragically shot.  It's that western civilization, specifically the younger generations, have lost their collective minds and do not have the mental faculties to be adults, let alone adults in the free world.  They are effectively zombies.  And there is no reasoning with them.

Plan accordingly.

Beastly Gentlemen Interview

Was interviewed about economics, finance, and investing on The Beastly Gentlemen.  Stop in and pay them a visit!

Your "Internet Boyfriend" is Not a Real Boyfriend

The Sanctuary Where Men Fleeing Feminist Churches Have Gone

The "Knowledgesphere."

Dagnabbit! We Didn't Have "Location Independent Jobs" In the 90's!!!!

From our sponsor Academic Composition:

On behalf of Academic Composition, I thank all for your support and unwavering interest in our organization. Unfortunately, many of you contacted us at a rather inopportune time. The busy Spring semester ended around May and that's when I started receiving a massive influx of inquiries about the work opportunities we offer.

The slow summer season is nearly done and we are definitely going to need your help for the next few months. Once the Fall season kicks off in September, we're going to be swamped all the way through mid-December and even then, we'll have about a two-week reprieve from the incessant onslaught of assignments. The Spring semester will start in January of 2016 and carry on through the middle of May.

I intend to retain the most reliable of my subcontractor throughout the entire academic year. If you are interested in posting ads, you will make $5 for each lead you'll generate and a dollar for each day your ad remains live on the forum. Many of our CL subcontractors earn well over $500 per month while doing less than 5 hours of work each week.  

If you are interested in writing, I am still looking to replace one of my main writers who will be going off to law school in August. Our average writer earns around $3,000 per month.

Thank you for your interest and support once and we will be looking forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Academic Composition

The Man from UNCLE and Racism

Interviewed by Kerry Lutz this week and we talked about the irony of being called racist for trying to help blacks, plus our anticipation of the new movie "The Man from UNCLE"

Why You Are a Slave for 13 Years

Time for some basic, simple 4th grade math everybody.  The kind of math that debunks even the most complicated and detailed arguments of the left, not to mention, boils things down into very basic, simple, and understandable terms.

Understand that money is nothing more than the physical manifestation of human time.  We, as humans, would like to exchange our time because different humans have different specialties that benefit us in terms and quality and extension of our lives.

I don't know how to farm, but Bob the farmer does.
I don't know how to program, but Bill the programmer does.
And I don't know how to do taxes, but Amy the accountant does.

Sadly, neither Bob, Bill, nor Amy want me to spend my time doing YouTube videos for them all day.  BUT, if I convert my time into a universally accepted medium of exchange (called "money") which they can use to buy and purchase things they DO want, this allows us then to exchange our time.

So somebody pays me for my curse-laden wisdom.  This transforms my time into money, and with this money I buy groceries from Farmer Bob who provides me his time in the form of said groceries.

There is one small minor problem.

Once you convert your time into money, into a physically tangible item, it can be stolen, take, "haircutted" or taxed away from you.  And we all know how thieves and governments (but I repeat myself) love to take your money.

Now, in theory, there IS a difference between a government and a thief.  A thief merely steals your money and provides nothing in return, thus the definition of theft.  But a government TO THE PENNY should be provide you something in return.

What, you ask?

Well, public goods.  Goods that directly benefit you.

Roads, defense, judicial system, laws, regulatory services, libraries, etc.

But there is ANOTHER "small problem."  Democracy.

Since we live in a democracy, other people get to vote on how much the government takes of your time/money and where to spend it on.  And since it is human nature to be immoral, lazy, greedy, and parasitic, the majority will vote to take your money and spend it NOT on public goods that benefit everybody, but them.

This, in it's more literal and linguistic definition can be called "legal theft."  But it goes by the leftist euphemisms of "income transfers" or "wealth redistribution."

However, and let us be very clear and literal about this, this transfer of your time/money to other people with no compensation goes by another name - slavery.

Whether you like to admit it or not, whether you'd like to ignore this fact or not (as it will raise your ire) you are a slave to other people in this country.  No different than the plantation slaves of the confederate South.  No different than the slaves of the Caribbean trade during the 1700's.  No different than the slaves of the Middle East (that academians and history revisionists seem to ignore).  The only difference is that instead of being kept chained and on a plantation, you are tethered by law (which is enforced with jail time and guns), which (ironically) makes for an even more productive slave.  You "think" you're "free" on account nobody is stopping you from going anywhere, but this serves to make you more productive, which generates for income for your slave masters.

Of course not all of your time is confiscated by the government.  If they did that, then why work?  Why not become a modern day slave master who parasites off of the productive and just collect a government check?  But you are a slave to SOME LEVEL and the question is how much?

Thankfully, ole Cappy here has been blessed with SAEG (TM), and can tell you precisely what percent of your life is spent as a slave.

13 years.

The math, again, is quite simple and thus literal and irrefutable.

If you start working at 16 and retire at 65 that is a 49 year work history.  The state, federal, and local governments tax us at a rate around 36% (using government spending as a percentage of GDP).  However, not all of that money goes to public goods that you benefit from.  Truthfully, 75% of it is income transfers to other people, ie- your masters.  So if we take a 49 year work history, multiply it by .36, and multiply that by .75 you see that you spend

13 years

working for other people.

Now I know the leftist argument that is coming.  That this money goes to help "the poor," the "disadvantaged," the "under privileged," and "the children" and every other group of sops the left bribes with your money.  But even if I thought these groups of people were truly disadvantaged and deserved the income transfers, it doesn't change the relational fact that these people are parasitic.  And in them being parasitic, they are by default making you slaves to them for 13 years of your working life.

The point I'm trying to make is not one of whether there should be a safety net or we should spend money on the poor.  It is to clearly identify and explain what is going on - that those who collect a government check are parasitic and should be THANKFUL for those who work extra to bail them out of their stupid ass life decisions support them.  They should be humbled that other people are sacrificing a percentage of their lives (13 years to be precise) so that they are shielded from the consequences of their mistakes.  They should be grateful so many millions of Americans are working damn well near a quarter of their working lives for others.

Alas, because of human nature, the opposite is true.  These parasites are ungrateful, even entitled, demanding more and more, 100% incapable of humility, gratitude, humbleness, and thanks.  All they can see is that those who worked harder and didn't make decisions that required a parasitic existence have "more" than they do and instead of looking into the mirror and accepting responsibility, they merely vote in more.

Many of you ask why I'm such a hard ass or such an "asshole" when it comes to helping out the poor. 

I merely ask you why you aren't.
