The difference is that liberals protect people, and P.C. people protect feelings. They don’t do anything. They’re pointing at other people who are somehow falling short of their standards, which could have changed three weeks ago. They’re constantly moving the goalposts so they can go, “Gotcha!” For example, when I was growing up, the most liberal thing you could do is not see color. Well, that’s wrong now. You see color, always, so you can register your white privilege. But I grew up in the Martin Luther King era: Judge by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. I still think that’s the best way to do it. Not see it.

The Need to Get Our Heads Out of Our Asses by Modern Adversary

I think we are reaching a point in our species’ history where “survival of the fittest” and the laws of evolution are no longer being applied. To quote NOFX’s “The Idiots Are Taking Over”:

It’s not the right time to be sober
Now the idiots have taken over
Spreading like a social cancer, is there an answer?

I will leave this here…. The post I had originally written here is, well, a little intense, and frankly, I don’t have the desire nor the patience to deal with the idiots that undoubtedly will contact me to send their opinion and hate words.

BLUF: The Military Standard That Can Make Your Writing More Powerful by Modern Adversary

BLUF is a military communications acronym—it stands for “bottom line up front”—that’s designed to enforce speed and clarity in reports and emails.

The basic idea is simple: put the most important details first. Don’t tease or delay your main point because people are busy and their time is valuable. And make it clear—life-or-death decisions could be made using your information.

I think this is awesome. I’ve been using a method like this in some form or other for some time, and it’s awesome to see the results. The article has a clear way of explaining BLUF and why we should all use it.
