A Job for Some of Youse Guys

Our sponsor Academic Composition is looking to hire.  Contact Alex if you think you'd be interested.

Do you live in California and are you looking to make a little extra cash?
There is no easier way to do this than to post flyers on college campuses
and collect a five dollar bonus for each person who will order an essay
with Academic Composition. All of your traveling expenses will be covered
and you will be paid per hour to hand out flyers.

This is the middle of mid-terms and California campuses are teeming with
fratboys and sorority sisters who have no business being there. To be sure,
they'd much rather pay to have their 20 page screed on feminism or
environmentalism written for them than lift a finger to do it on their own.
Besides, who could blame them for skipping out on such preposterous
exercises in intellectual futility?

The bottom line is, dozens of students will reach out to us through your
flyers and you could earn a substantial supplemental income with minimal
effort expended.

Email us at academiccomposition@gmail.com to get started, we'll have more
information for you as soon as you do.

Today's Self Employed Office Brought to You In Part By

Taleo Brass Ring - Yes, we know you gave us your resume.  Yes, we know we have parsing technology.  But we want to see if you'll jump through these hoops like a good little monkey so we know we can take advantage of you later.  Taleo Brass Ring, making life hell for job seekers.

and by

Diversity Training - Do you do your job well?  Do you work hard and produce?  Do you go that extra mile?  Well fuck you, you're still a racist sexist!  And we're going to remind you every year.  Diversity training, treating adults like children because socialists need to brainwash you.

and by

Meetings - Yes, you have important work to do, but we need you to sit in a room while middle aged incompetents blather and act like they're leaders.  Sit there, be quiet and listen to things that have nothing to do with your job, all while wasting precious time that could be used to expedite your job.  By the way, you need to come in on the weekend to make up for this lost labor.  "Meetings" - it's how idiots manage!

Anyway, just wanted to show you guys my office view today:





























Oh, and for any of my ex bosses, please feel free to post what the view looks like from your office!  I love pictures of cubicles and parking lots!

Please Stop Begging for Higher Rates of Return

A common question I get in my "alternative" financial life style is

"How can I get a higher rate of return on my investments?"

People are sick of the barely existent interest rates on their checking or savings accounts.  People don't like the rates on T-Bills or government bonds.  And people are also tired of the whopping 3-5% on high quality corporate bonds.

Isn't there ANYWHERE I can get a better return?  Why, I need my 401k to magically constantly forever unabattedly perpetually infinitely grow at 10% in order to retire at 62!

The charlatans come in and say "stocks."

But let me beat this dead horse one more time in case you didn't get it the first 40 times.

What is the REAL rate of return of stocks?  And when I say REAL I mean what kind of income do stocks generate?  I know everybody has formed a circle jerk around capital gains and believe that magically constantly forever unabattedly perpetually infinitely increasing stock prices will solve everybody's problem, but what drives those capital gains?  What gives stocks their value?

The answer is -dividends.

It's not "earnings" because ultimately a life long share holder never SEES all the earnings.  They are ONLY paid dividends (and a final cash out should the company be acquired or their shares be purchased), but even that final cash out is dependent upon the future dividends those acquired assets will generate.

So what "rate of return" are stocks truly providing?  What is the real "interest rate" you are earning on stocks?

Well my fine 401k Zombie Lemmings, here it is:





















I strongly recommend you plan on working till you're 75.

The Real, Statistical, Factual Causes of the US Deficit and Debt

A very common and very KEY argument I came across when debating the left is the true and underlying causes of the national deficit, and by consequence, national debt.  Those of us on the right claim it is excessive social spending, those on the left insist it is military spending.  After studying the budget and public finances tangentially, I intuitively knew it had to be social spending.  BUT, I did not know for a fact.  And so I decided to spend my coffee session pulling data from the White House's federal budget data and FRED database to find out, once and for all, what are the true causes of our national deficit/debt.

The issue is not as straight forward as one might thing.  For example, how far back do we go?  1790?  Post WWII?  What percentage of today's debt is caused by which years of deficit the government has run.  In the best efforts of intellectual honesty I looked at the historical "deficits as a percentage of GDP" aiming to find when we started running chronic and serious budget deficits.  I also went post WWII because of the obvious warping effects a global war has on budgets.  And I also chose post WWII because adjusting for inflation and population growth (ie - the majority of today's debt was caused by more recent society, not the 10 million people that lived here 200 years ago).

This resulted in a starting point of 1971.  If you look at deficits as a percentage of GDP it was 1971 that start not only chronic, but significant deficits (and it is here, no doubt, leftists will focus their arguments because the math henceforth is unassailable).

However, before we move forward it is imperative that I issue a trigger warning for any socialists, leftists or democrats reading this.  The following information is factual, math based, and real.  I know these things cause great stress, emotional harm, and psychological damage to leftsits, not to mention are insulting to the leftist community.  If you could have your government-paid therapist or counselor on speed dial, that may help before continuing reading through this article.

So here is the basic data.  The sum of all government spending, by general department from 1971 to 2014, along with their corresponding percentages.























You'll note standard battle lines to be drawn as libertarians and conservatives cite Social Security as being larger than Military spending.  You'll also note the left immediately (and predictably) pointing out "Veterans Affairs" is not included in military spending.  However, the above data needs to be simplified as there are multiple accounts across the general two categories that are being debated as to the cause of our chronic deficits and debt - Military spending and Social spending.  I simplified this chart into four categories.

1.  Social spending
2.  Military spend
3.  Governance (which is appallingly low) and
4. "Other" (where it wasn't governance, social spending, or military.  Namely space agency)

The results confirm what nearly 2 decades of research and common sense would tell you - social spending is by far to blame for the deficits and debt we have today.








But before leftists now scramble to find an excuse (or call their therapist) to explain this reality away, let's us hold on before taking that step and address a tangential issue to this debate that may solve it for both sides - psychology.

You see, in the early days of this blog (and my career) I naively spend hours, if not months, crunching numbers, calculating statistics, and doing so in an intellectually honest manner because I truthfully was concerned about what was truth.  I did not want to have an ideology or a political position and then "force" data to fit my preferences.  I wanted the facts and data to form my political ideology.  However, when presenting data, such as the above, to those on the left, no matter how right it was, no matter how solid and unbiased my ideology, and no matter how apolitical the data was, people on the left simply refused to believe it.

It soon dawned on me the true debate between right and left is not one of facts, data, statistics or reality, but one of psychology.  The left is delusional and puts their religion above all else, including reality.

Therefore, let us cut to the chase.  I know I just wasted the past hour crunching numbers, making charts, and uploading them here.  I know this is going to be as effective as DayQuil on cancer.  So my question to the left is NOT "will you please finally admit you were wrong."  It's going to be;

"Please humor me and entertain me with the mentally ill and cognitive dissonance acrobatics your going to use to explain away this one.  I always get a kick out of watching mentally damaged people ignore reality."

Enjoy that freaking decline.

"The Stalker Paradox" and flaking out in the 90's
"She got hit by a truck" aka "The Night Cappy Was Stood Up"
Troll of the Weak exposes herself through shaming language
The pen IS mightier than the sword
It's better to lie than be called an "ist"
How minorities should be lynching the left for how they're ruined their lives

AND MORE!

In this episode of The Clarey Podcast.

Also remember the podcast is available in iTunes and Stitcher.

And for all you Apple users, for some reason people who also have their podcast on iTunes keep asking to "vote up" their podcast on iTunes.  I don't know what that is, I'm sure there's some benefit, so if you'd be so kind, I'd appreciate it.

Truth Cannot Be "Sexist" Nor "Racist"

What I always get a kick out of (and more or less how I make my living) is how merely speaking the truth will get you accused of all sorts of "ists."  I'm already 60% dead and will not waste my remaining life living lies or abiding by them.  I've already danced around politically incorrect eggshells for far too long.  So I find it very cute, but intellectually conflicting when people claim merely speaking the truth is "sexist" or "racist."

This otherwise fine review of BPE is one such an example. 

"I’m going to have to agree that there are a few things Aaron writes about that are sexist. However what his critics don’t address is the more important issue of whether or not what he writes is true."

So am I to understand that the Victim Industry and Politically Correct Nazis have been so successful in brainwashing people that it is better to LIE than to speak the truth?  It's scary that people's logic are so preprogrammed this way that it is better to lie than to be considered sexist or bigotted, etc.

Let me tell you the path this is going down.

When people start telling lies, believing in lies, and (worst of all) making decisions based in lies, society begins to falter.  Growth falters, standards of living decrease, nearly every aspect of life will get worse because you're NOT living in the real world. What's worse is that people would prefer to hear pretty lies than harsh truths, and this gives genuinely evil people, posing as politicians, carte blanche to tell you whatever they want, and whatever you want to hear, so they can score your naive vote.

You people wonder why economic growth is 1/2 of what it used to be?
You people wonder why you can't find jobs?
You people wonder why there's a national debt 105% GDP?
You people wonder why after trillions spent on "The Great Society" women still earn only 77% of what men do and black's standards of living have not closed the gap with whites?

Well how about you grow a fucking spine and start accepting, living with, and basing your decisions in....(GASP!!!!)

reality.

Enjoy the decline, boys and girls.  Enjoy the freaking decline.

Beware of Made Up Words

Something that I hadn't had time to fully think through was why people (especially in academia) who used made up words gave me the heebee jeebees.  Any perusal of a women's studies course description or the a powerpoint presentation from a "diversity consultant" will leave (the sane) reader not only befuddle and perplexed, but asking the question, "WTF?"  More so the sane reader's survivalist instincts will kick in in the back of his brain saying, "Something ain't right here.  What are these people up to?  There is something nefarious going on."  And your instincts aren't wrong, because there is indeed something nefarious going on.

Take for example the handful of new vocabulary words I've learned thanks to Mr. Aurini.

Agency
Misanthrope
and
Catharsis

Very hoity toity words.  Very high brow philosophy, and one might even conclude these terms are just as bogus as many made up academian ones.  However, just because they're high brow and not commonly part of most people's vernacular, doesn't mean they're not real words.  And the reason they are real words is because they describe a phenomenon that is naturally happening in the real world.  "Agency" is in part responsibility or purpose in life, a very real force that drives men's psychology today.  Misanthrope is a person who hate humanity.  And catharsis is basically an excuse for you to take all your frustrations out on a whipping boy.

Because these words describe real world phenomena they are practical.  They are useful.  They serve a function in describing something in the real world, allowing humans to identify, understand, describe and discuss them.

However, the same cannot be said about the ever-increasing faux-vocabulary that the left is manufacturing.

Take for example the words/phrases:

Intersectionality
Privilege
Raise awareness
Pangender
or any one of these 812 other gender types

These words are, frankly, made up words.  And the reason the hair on the back of your head is being raised when you hear them is because their primary goal is NOT to define something that is real in the real world, but rather to serve two ulterior purposes (as far as my thinking takes me).

1.  The Ego

If there is one thing I want to get across to other people about leftist psychology it is that it is driven by LAZINESS and EGO.  Intellectual weaklings who are too lazy to work hard, try hard, and engage in studies of true and genuine rigor find it fanciful to create "studies" out of whole cloth.  This serves two purposes - it allows them to avoid any actual hard work, BUT also allows them to fool themselves into thinking they're actually intelligent and on par with truly accomplished individuals.  Humanities professors love nothing more than being called "Professor" or "Doctor" when the effort they put into their studies was a microscopic fraction of the work real doctors in real fields forfeited.  This is not only why they're typically pompous about their fabricated position in life, but also dismissive of people who "just don't understand" don't believe their poppycock profession is real.

2. Making You a Slave/Stealing Your Life

Well, technically they want to steal your money (which is LITERALLY nothing more than making you a slave to them) but the larger point is that ego and laziness tends not to produce anything of value in the real world.  And since the left is typically not productive they need other people's money.

Here, these made up words serve a great function because they manipulate the only way humans communicate.  While you're trying to figure out what the heck a leftist is saying, or trying to understand what these words mean, deep down inside you can't know what these words mean because they aren't intended to describe anything real.  This provides the smoke screen for a leftist to essentially say, "You owe me more of your money because of (fill in made up word/concept here)_______________" and if you disagree or don't know what they were trying to say, too bad.  You're a "simpleton" "uneducated," or (more typically) a racist, bigot, homophobe, etc.

But understand such linguistic manipulation was by design.  Since these words do not adhere to the laws and rules of the real linguistic world, it's as if they become a supernatural word amongst normal words much like Superman amongst normal human beings.  It can be used for any purpose because it is not anchored or handicapped to having to be a real word that describes something TRUTHFULLY, ACCURATELY and REAL.

It is here you commonly see words that at one time WERE real and DID describe something in reality, but have since been co-opted for political and theft-purposes.

Racist
Misogynist
Bigot
Community
Diversity
Appropriate
Dialogue
Empowerment
and others

No doubt when you hear a politician, an activist, a non-profiteer, a media type or a professor using these words you immediately do not trust these people.

The larger point of this entire post, however, is to get you to identify these individual for what they truly are (using real words)

Cowards
Liars
and
Theives

No matter how clever or complicated they think they're being
No matter how much of a ruse they throw up to make themselves seem smart (again faux degrees in the humanities fields attracts these charlatans)
And no matter how much they bluff about their intellectual superiority, they are nothing but

Cowards,
Liars,
and
Thieves

They want your money, but dare not have the courage like a street thug to come up and try to take it from you.  Ergo they employ the most cowardly, elongated tactic to rationalize stealing it - the liberal arts and indoctrination.  And after brainwashing enough youth through the education industry to believe in things and concepts that aren't real, they "peaceably" steal your life from you through when these brainwashed dolts go and vote as they were programmed to, allowing idiocracy and the state to steal your money/life.

That is why when you hear these words your instincts tell you not to trust such people.
That is why when you hear these faux words the hair on the back of your hair stands up.

It's just now it's gone from an instinctual suspicion of a parasite and thief, to a full blow frontal lobe identification and knowledge of this clear and present threat.
