Graduation Speech – Don’t Follow Your Passion
Mike Rowe for Prager U
This Poem Will Reside Here Forever
“It is the soldier, not the reporter
who has given us the freedom of the press.
It is the soldier, not the poet
who has given us the freedom of the speech.
It is the soldier, not the campus organizer
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier who salutes the flag.
who serves beneath the flag.
and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
who allows the protestor to burn the flag.”
Father Dennis Edward O’Brien.

Normality in Society
“To be successful, any society must establish the parameters for what is “normal” behavior. Liberals have blurred the parameters to such an extent that nothing is considered abnormal behavior.
“In every society there are also percentages that are genius, above average, average, below average, idiots and imbecile’s. We have achieved, via various “rights” and propositions, a society where the imbecile’s, idiot’s and below average are in positions of authority. They have infiltrated our entertainment, our schools, our universities, and our government. They are typically called Liberals. It’s time to right our ship.”

You know the rules, they are the same as any other honest blog site so keep it clean and no racial slurs. We do not want anyone bringing any arguments from other blogs to this blog so please keep it to a minimum. We don’t want anyone talking down anyone on another site and mentioning anyone by name, but we understand at times a certain amount of venting is required and will be allowed. However asking why another person was banned is not allowed. All that does is stir the pot. It is automatically assumed there was a good reason.
While we welcome new posters, we do not appreciate posters who are not regulars to join us and start arguments. I will ban anyone I think is doing that. Foul language or porn pictures gets them banned immediately.
I really don’t like being put in any position where it appears I am exerting any authority. SO, having said that I’m going to modify the NO CUT AND PASTE policy. Comments are welcome, links are welcome, BUT repeated cutting and pasting more than one paragraph are not welcome. I would like you to moderate yourself and I’m taking the MOD SQUAD out of the loop. BUT, Moderators are allowed to remove any additional paragraphs without any prior notice, so please don’t ramble on.
I’m asking you to monitor yourself, please work with us.
Moderators will not referee any conversations between any of you nor will they make any judgement except for Porn and blatant use of Foul Language. Moderators may not use the word “Warning” at any time.
THIS IS A CONSERVATIVE SITE SO CONSERVATIVE’S MAY DISCUSS CONSERVATIVE IDEAS AND CONSERVATIVE VALUES. WE CAN DISAGREE WITH PRESIDENT TRUMP, BUT BASHING HIM FOR BASHING’S SAKE WON’T BE TOLERATED.
LIBERAL’S MAY POST AT YOUR OWN RISK, BUT WILL NOT BE WELCOME IF ALL YOU DO IS ACT LIBERAL

Why the Left Lies
All Lies are designed to seem true. The expert liar carefully uses elements that seem probable and logical and are therefore easy to believe. On the other hand, The Truth is often illogical, wildly improbable and hard to explain.
Lies are more believable than The Truth.
The Truth is spontaneous, accidental and unpredictable. Lies, however, can be planned in detail long in advance and are thus guaranteed to turn out as predicted.
Lies are more dependable than The Truth.
To be The Truth, an account of a given event must be completely accurate. This requires painstaking resourcefulness, expensive research, time-consuming attention to detail, complex logistics and thoroughness. In spite of all that, some people will believe it and others will not. A Lie will produce identical results without all the fuss and bother.
Lies are simpler than Truth; Lies cost less than Truth in time, money and effort.
The Truth can be found anywhere; it belongs to anybody who finds it, absolutely free. Lies are custom-made, often by experts, and the best ones are highly polished works of art.
Lies are worth more money than Truth. Have you ever heard of anybody bribing a witness to tell The Truth?
a. Great fortunes have been made by selling Lies to the public. The people who sell these Lies are often grateful to the gullible consumers, so they endow libraries and universities and cultural centers.
b. Nobody ever made a fortune selling The Truth. First of all, as already stated, The Truth is free. The only people who will pay money for The Truth are people who are being blackmailed-and they are only buying The Truth so they can hide it before anybody else sees it.
Lies lead to libraries and universities, while The Truth leads to blackmail.
- Take one thousand parts Truth, add one part Lie. Result: a Lie.
- Take one-thousandth part Lie, add one part Truth. Result: again, a Lie.
- Note that you can make a Lie out of The Truth, but you can’t make The Truth out of a Lie.
Lies are stronger and last longer than The Truth.
In reporting The Truth, a person must research the precise facts and stick to them exactly as they occurred. The liar can report the same incident without doing any research, merely saying whatever comes to his mind and filling in the “details” according to his cause.
Lies are more creative than the Truth.
People are accustomed to hearing Lies all the time.
If you tell The Truth, people will think you are lying. If you convince them you are telling The Truth, they will become suspicious. Why is he suddenly telling The Truth? What’s going on?
VIX. Supply and Demand
A. In describing any given incident, only one version can possibly be The Truth, whereas the number of Lies possible is unlimited. Obviously Lies are in far greater supply than Truth.
B. There is a great demand for Lies, if they are flattering, if they build up one’s hopes, if they help one escape reality or if they promise health, wealth, power or potency. Nobody is very anxious to hear The Truth. The only people who demand The Truth are those who are investigating something (lawyers, etc.)-and they only want The Truth to prove somebody is lying.
Lies are the acceptable medium of exchange in our society. They are in good supply and the demand for them remains strong. The Truth is in extremely short supply, but even this tiny supply far exceeds the demand. Thus, in our society, Truth occupies a position identical to that of dinosaur shit.
