I recently saw a meme/quote being circulated that exemplifies an emotional confirmation or framing bias. I wont call out that person out of respect but I want to share the meme and my response in hopes that we can more easily recognise the falicy.

“My friend, Ive been pondering this meme since you posted it and I must respectfully disagree with it. The quote is too easy in its simplicity and denies a few simple truths of human existence. 1. Poverty is the natural state of being and was so until the invention of personal ownership of property and the accumulation of wealth in America via capitalism. 2. That accumulation of wealth enabled even the poorest Americans a way of life better off than the rest of the world and offered the idea that hard work and diligence could increase the possibility of success. 3. American capitalism lifted the rest of western civilization out of poverty and spread the idea of such freedom around the world which raised the poverty and prosperity level for anyone willing to embrace it.

This quote, whoever wrote it, may protest a perversion of these principles but being so simplistic about it gives the opposite impression.

The fact that capitalist principles work is the reason why socialists in our society are able to stir class warfare exemplified in this meme. It irks me when the truth is twisted in such a way.

I’m sure you meant no harm but I felt compelled to defend our founding principles

It it not the rich who cannot be satiated, my friend. It is the ones who pervert our system for their own lust for power.

Some power hungry maggots are rich but not all rich people are power hungry maggots.

And btw, I’ve caught myself posting such twisted biases, so Im not judging.

That some should be rich shows that others may become rich, and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him who is houseless pull down the house of another; but let him labor diligently and build one for himself, thus by example assuring that his own shall be safe from violence built. ~ Abraham Lincoln

If anyone needs to lose your lunch, go read David Frum’s delusional article on the Jan 6 hearings at The Atlantic. It’s a prime example of how the leftists stay insulated from middle America and reality in general.

Frum is right about one thing. YOU are the most important witness.

You and I know these things whether you admit it or not. – Trump won. The 2020 election was stolen. All the TDS, posturing and theater in the world will never change that.

The biggest question is, will WE allow them to get away with it again?

In response to the recent leak of a SCOTUS opinion that could strike down Roe v Wade, The View host Joy Behar hinted at a sex strike in America.

Ummm. Okay.

I’m relatively sure she thinks of her statement as a threat but her call for a sex strike is in fact nothing short of what many christians would say should be taught as a solution to many unwanted pregnancies.

So congratations, Joy for encouraging both of your followers to practice the ultimate birth control. I’m sure your husband is relieved as well.

To that end, I offer a crude device to assist in desisting, if you will. Just in case someone out there isn’t near a cold shower, here’s the next best thing:

You’re welcome. I think.

Gov’t to Big Tech: We don’t censor speech but you can if you want. Nudge nudge, wink wink, Say no more. Hey. Say no more. Hey.

Gov’t: We need a Ministry of Truth!

Durham needs security immediately.

In the filing, Mr. Durham says the government has evidence that an unnamed tech executive “exploited” an arrangement with the government to monitor Mr. Trump’s internet traffic at Trump Tower, Mr. Trump’s Central Park West apartment, the executive office of the president and an unnamed healthcare provider.

Purely speculating but it could be that with the whistle-blower spilling the beans on Facebook’s election tampering perhaps there is an attempt to stifle some of that information being dissiminated by placing itself in lockdown?

Seems strange. Even for Fauxerberg.

Signed,

A curious ‘bot.

Here’s hoping they don’t blow it.

The Texas House and Senate have reached a compromise on a bill to allow the permitless carrying of handguns, the top negotiators said Friday, moving it even closer to Gov. Greg Abbott’s desk for a likely signature.
The author of the legislation, Rep. Matt Schaefer, R-Tyler, announced the deal in a statement Friday afternoon, and the Senate sponsor, Sen. Charles Schwertner, R-Georgetown, issued a subsequent statement also acknowledging an agreement. Details of the compromise were not immediately available.


It appears Elon Musk’s credibility with the Dogecoin faithful has all but evaporated.  After pumping the crypto for weeks in tweets he appeared on Saturday Night Live and called the meme coin a “hustle.”

Sunday, in a possible attempt to reconcile he tweeted that the coin would be the first in space.

A tweet from Elon Musk saying that his SpaceX company would accept dogecoin (DOGE-USD) to fund a lunar mission next year failed to spur the price of the cryptocurrency on Monday.

Dogecoin, which had been rallying last week as internet users tried to push the value of the coin to $1 (£0.70), was lower on the day, down 1.1% to $0.53.

Time will tell if he’s ever forgiven by the fans of the crypto craze Dogecoin.

Thank goodness the border czar is combating the overwhelming flow with the appropriate response.
