Nobody Flashes Stupid Injuries

Nobody Flashes

Okay. These things happen. I need to take a few days off DUE to the fact that I sprained my right thumb, and don’t ask me how I did that…it’s too embarrassing. BUT..the swelling is severe enough that it hurts to type.baby bored

At least I didn’t get it punching out a wall or pole vaulting! 🙂

Right now, it’s ice and heat, and ice and heat…and the good news is, no broken fingers…just muscles that need to heal.

I’ll be back as soon as the swelling goes down!

In the meantime…hold the fort.

  1. Joyanna–

    While your hand is healing, allow me to post something for your readers to think about:

    Do any of these memes sound familiar?

        There is no truth, only competing agendas.
    
        All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism.
    
        There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
    
        The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
    
        Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
    
        The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
    
        For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But ‘oppressed’ people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
    
        When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions.
    

    The American Left believes each one of those memes as gospel, but each one of them was deliberately planted into the U.S. culture by the Soviet Union. From: Gramscian damage http://esr.ibiblio.org/?p=260:

        Indeed, the index of Soviet success is that most of us no longer think of these memes as Communist propaganda. It takes a significant amount of digging and rethinking and remembering, even for a lifelong anti-Communist like myself, to realize that there was a time (within the lifetime of my parents) when all of these ideas would have seemed alien, absurd, and repulsive to most people — at best, the beliefs of a nutty left-wing fringe, and at worst instruments of deliberate subversion intended to destroy the American way of life.
    

    So did America really win the cold war?

      • Get that thumb well soon, Joy so you can figure out this formatting.

        While you are at it (getting the thumb well), get the rest of yourself well too. We don’t want any other bits falling out in sympathy.

      • I thought that formatting was really awesome! How DID you manage that? And the article was great too! My thumb just had to be placed at the keyboard to thank you for such insightful knowledge…it’s out there, but how do you get people to understand they are being brainwashed?

        And thanks to both you guys for making my day! I feel better already….by the way, no cast…the swelling went down, and I found my other thumb works fine.

      • In that last post, I wanted to insert a couple of quotes. Since I wasn’t aware of any “quote” function, I placed a series of six tildes (to the left of numeral 1 in the upper left keyboard) above and below the quote. It would have worked pretty well if I had put in hard carriage returns.Let’s try it again:

        Glad your thumb is better!
