Hobbs’ attack on commissioners is groundless
The Ferry County Republican Party recently received a reporter’s request for a response to a statement made by Secretary of State Candidate Steve Hobbs in a debate held at Gonzaga University on Oct. 22.Secretary of State Hobbs, used the debate forum to disparage and attack the decision of Ferry County commissioners to remove a device called an Albert Sensor from our county computer network. Hobbs' statement about Ferry County left out facts and misstated others. By trying to advance a...

What is a Scientific Fact? Scientistic Metafictions: Laying Bare the Heuristicsby Asa BoxerTHE LAWS OF NATUREMy mother tells this story about attending an outdoor event when it began to rain. Someone standing close by, turned to her with a confused air and said, “But I don’t understand. It wasn’t supposed to rain.” It was an absurd statement, but one that reflects a common problem with our notions of fact and reality. Weather forecasts are notoriously unreliable, and yet many religiously...

I authorize you to put up Xmas decorations and do Xmas gift shopping now. If you were shopping prior to this, you are WRONG.If you had Xmas decorations up prior to this point, stay where you are and one of our mobile beat-your-butt teams will find you.Tis the season now. Ho-ho-ho.

Rule By Experts Or The Constitution, The Choice Is YoursDear Friends,It seems to me, we are witnessing in real time, the transfer of power from the constitutional government, to an administrative state. To that end, we are being manipulated in a myriad of ways. The John Fetterman candidacy is one example. He is clearly cognitively impaired yet continues to run, and more importantly, people will still vote for him. Why? Because he will be a reliable democrat vote. That is all. No one’s voting...
The Admission Of Mistakes
I am not a great empath or someone with a substantial amount of emotional intelligence (i.e. so-called 'EQ'). My strengths lie elsewhere, in being somewhat rational and in the performance of quantitative reasoning. I also have some creative instincts and some gifts of insight as well, particularly when pondering and sometimes even solving difficult quantitative problems and questions. I was raised to recognize when I make or have made a mistake. I was also instructed to not only recognize...
You can't just show up to the party
Finally, something is clicking. A few things occurred that didn't quite match up with my visualized ideal in the past few months. But some other things did. What's the difference? Diligent planning. Lack of adequate preparation consistently contributes to my failures.I can’t just show up to the party. I'm not there yet. I have to prematurely ask myself-what’s important here? What’s the end goal? What plans can I set in stone that could solidify meeting my most prioritized needs? Let's discuss...
Understanding ‘Devolution’
This text is absurdly simplistic. In the beginning, the political left was revolutionist. The ‘nice left’ – the reformist left – came along later, and was always supposed to be a sort of ‘adjunct’ to the serious left. Then a weird thing happened: the party-communist revolutions went so wrong that the reformist left became sort of the de facto ‘basic model’ – the Scandinavian nations are a good example. Okay, now we add the important detail:‘revolution’ is generally understood as ‘The New Good...
The Oligarch’s Oligarch
The Oligarch’s Oligarch Dear Friends,It seems to me, the elite in the republican party are horrified at the populists gaining ground, like Trump, because they see themselves as the proper managers of the totalitarian state the democrats are building… not as an alternative to it! The republican party started as a progressive party, of the elite, by the elite, for the elite. The Christian coalition, conservatives and others changed the paradigm though. Establishment republicans however, still...
Today I started to clean my room

How Civilizations Fall
How Civilizations Fall Dear Friends,It seems to me, the more powerful government is, the more important it is to control those with power. If we had a strictly limited government with little power to affect us, we could tolerate the most corrupt people who have ever lived in public office, because they would have no power to harm. In a system where the government has the power ours does, every bureaucrat, politician and judge needs to be a saint, else the whole government becomes a means to...
In A Perfect World ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This is my first post on Thinkspot. I have mostly remained silent here, content to read the brilliant articles being issued by people with far greater intellectual capacity than I, but an excellent t.s. commentary by John Pepin (here) lamenting on the current state of government overreach caused me to dust off my pulpit. I replied to his post with much the same idea as posited below, a peculiar way in which I view how government ought to function, or as I imply, “operate”. It’s crazy, I know,...

Two: ‘doing something’ assumes an enlargement of bureaucracy.Three: many people are opposed to enlargements of our bureaucracies.Four:...
The Human Brain and Getting Along
While writing this article, I spent a bit of time trying to figure out how we see things and people in this world VS what others say we must see instead and how we must react. [...] One of the big subjects in the world today is that people are prejudice against other people. I’ve heard the statement that we classify people into groups or classes and that makes us prejudice, or these days, racist. Truth be told, there are prejudices in the world towards many nationalities, religions, and any...
What is History?
History isn’t simply a record of the past. If it was, all past facts would be given equal value but instead, almost all past facts are intentionally ignored and treated as irrelevant by all. History is the study of the past to better improve the future, it is a study of the past for the purpose of learning from it and making tomorrow better than today by understanding yesterday. History is a method for improving the human condition, a field of study specializing in advancing the race through...
I, the Person
I, the person, am an autonomous member of society; neither slave nor master, in whole or in part. My relationships are voluntary, as is my cooperation with society.I own my thoughts. I define my words. I am accountable for my decisions and actions. My existence doesn't create a debt to society, nor does it create a debt that society owes me.I decide what's best for me, my relationships, and my world. While I am fully independent, I cultivate interdependence with kith and kin. I don't decide...

The Hegelian Manipulation That Is FTX
The Hegelian Manipulation That Is FTXDear Friends,It seems to me, the absolute corruption the FTX bankruptcy exposes, is astounding. That it is being manipulated into a Hegelian swindle is shocking even to the most jaded and cynical. The pathology that leads to such behavior is indeed deep, dark and disturbing. Basically, people created a decentralized currency to get around the central bank controlled monetary system. It got out of hand and became successful… so the elite set up a...
How Covid curbs on church-going harmed public...
During the Covid-19 pandemic, people were barred in many countries from attending religious worship for long periods, and nowhere more so than in Ireland. When they were not barred, severe restrictions were put on the numbers who could attend. But strictly from a public health perspective, was it worth it? An important new study suggest it was not, and the restrictions may have done more public health harm than good.The research, just published in the European Economic Review is based on a...
Just Galling
Just GallingDear Friends,It seems to me, in a just world, the people who created the shortages in energy and food, would go cold and hungry, but instead, the powerless will go cold and hungry, while the powerful will eat Wagu filet mignon, and keep their chateaus a balmy 79 degrees this winter. What we have then is a fundamentally unjust system. If the elite who caused the problems, were to voluntarily turn their thermostats down to 65 degrees, and eat bugs, lead by example, then they...

Anti-Americans Run America
Anti-Americans Run AmericaDear Friends,It seems to me, who would have ever thought patriotism, adherence to constitutional principles and the American ethic… would be called bad? Because it’s nationalist. Even as what the elite call “good” is the very definition of anti-American… global fascism. Now that is political progress, in the wrong direction to be sure, but progress nonetheless. Can you imagine in 1950s America, the schools teaching atheism, socialism, and confusing the children if...

A group of unelected bureaucrats from the National Park Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service think it would an awesome idea to “re-introduce” Grizzly Bears into the North Cascades region of Washington State.These bureaucrats have opened an Environmental Impact Study (EIS) to “evaluate options for restoring and managing grizzly bears in the North Cascades of Washington…”.Many citizens of north central Washington think this is a really bad idea. In 2018-19 citizens of the region fought...

Our Pedo-Elite
Our Pedo-Elite Dear Friends,It seems to me, every politician, judge and prosecutor that hasn’t demanded Epstein’s elite pedophile clients be charged with pedophilia, must be pedophiles. How could I presume anything else? Normal people want pedophiles charged. So, either the elite are pedophiles, or they are willing to abet pedophilia. Neither is a resounding tribute of their virtue. Don’t expect republicans to demand an inquiry into Epstein’s murder-cide. They are either cowed or complicit....

Well, it’s our old foe, the naturalistic fallacy. The essays in...

The job of the people, whom are the masters, is to assume the government and professionals are lying, incompetent, or simply imperfect, WHILE the job of the government and professionals is to prove they aren't in order to justify retaining their jobs.

Waiting for the miracle to come

That was another.When we invent the idea of a special experience called realization or enlightenment, we simultaneously create a problem for ourselves because we turn it into both an object and a goal.

On 'Actually Applied' Mathematics
If an observer looks back on the field of mathematics over the last few decades, several things stand out. For example, there has been the steady creation of more and more subfields and categories and specialties in mathematics. And there have been other changes as well. Mathematics is the language of nature. It is so useful for describing nature and predicting what nature will do in certain circumstances, that it has been adopted as the language of assorted sciences investigating the natural...

A Fourth Lysenkoism? (One, edited)
Is it too early to claim that we’ve entered the fourth Lysenkoism? Probably. Is it too early to consider what it might look like? No.So let’s do that:there are some mundane things to be explained; but what if transgenderism fuses with transhumanism? (via transspeciesism?) Here’s the ‘springboard’:Butler’s notion of ‘performing gender’ is far from ridiculous.

Such access will disable...
The Growing Power of Left-wing Women
There’s been a recent kerfuffle involving talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres who copped ferocious online abuse from the Left for enjoying a game of football with former president George W Bush.“Just because I don’t agree with someone on everything doesn’t mean that I’m not going to be friends with them,” said DeGeneres. “When I say be kind to one another, I don’t mean only the people that think the same way that you do.”That’s pretty rare thinking from a left-wing woman.

Vigilantism After The Great Reset
Vigilantism After The Great ResetDear Friends,It seems to me, the elite might be biting off more than they can chew, when it comes to triggering the American people to political violence. They think (hope) conservatives will eventually be set off and shoot random people, blow up a bridge or beat up haphazard black people… when nothing could be further from the case. In this they are projecting their own attitudes, actions and ideas on conservatives. Clearly, Soros, Schwabb and Blofeldt...
Higgins trial implodes
What a circus. This week the Higgins/Lehrmann rape trial imploded, when the jury was dismissed due to misconduct by a juror. The case was heading for a hung jury after five days of deliberation during which not a single question was put to the judge – which suggests that the jury was battling over beliefs rather than wrestling with understanding the evidence.But then one juror appears to have taken it upon him/herself to do their own research, coming up with an academic paper described by the...
