Rules for Non-Radicals

Rules for Non-Radicals
by Mark Urso

  • To “hate the haters back” is being complicit in someone else’s plan.
  • Climate change is the biggest “fuck science” ever.
  • If you believe there’s a fact checking industry, you deserve one.
  • Facebook and Twitter promote hate.
  • There’s no cure for the common cold or flu, but we all still go to work.
  • Some people just believe the first version of any story.
  • Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House, gets drunk at work.
  • The New York Times lies, then admits it, without breaking stride.
  • Andrew Cuomo is a mass murderer.
  • Time magazine exposed election fraud, but it was still somehow more like praising it Continue reading “Rules for Non-Radicals”

The Vision of Division

just words

The fabric of society is being unwoven by technology and lockdowns.

We already had smartphones to keep us from getting together with our friends; now we have lockdowns, too, and it could get worse. The impact on society is significant, and change is foreboding.

What’s real? What’s “normal?” Shall we be casual about it? I believe there are two ways of feeling out the world, and it’s always done through face-to-face contact. Some people are casual, others are skeptical. From the eyes of a young person, say a 20-something, the world is a place where smartphones always existed. That’s an extreme angle, but sociologically, the process of growing up for someone today is vastly different than when I was in my 20s, when we couldn’t get a paper airplane to fly right!

Trump Biden Debate Full Review

NASHVILLE, TN – There were actual players, saying honest things without cheap shots. The US Presidential debate went well tonight!

Who won? Not sure, but Biden did well, relatively speaking. I’d have to say Trump won, because he simply doesn’t keep repeating things, understands business, is sympathetic to patriotism and supports law and order, some of which subjects were not discussed tonight. But Trump was confident, and lowered his posture to any degree needed to keep everything cool. He breaks new ground in public impression-making every time he speaks. He learns quickly.

But is he the best man for the job? Continue reading “Trump Biden Debate Full Review”

The Things I Learned In Life

just words

I’ve been very lucky to have a great family.

Most of who I am is based on the examples set, good times laughing about Monty Python, getting far too interested in who everyone’s dentist is, beaching it all day, all summer as kids, dinner every night at home with the whole family, the smiles and smirks, raised eyebrows and such …

It all adds up to a person!

I was lucky to be raised well. Sounds a bit like bragging; maybe that’s why people are reluctant to talk about how Continue reading “The Things I Learned In Life”

Protesters Are Not Rioters. They Are Terrorists. Well … It Depends …

That headline — I didn’t make that up.

It’ll all fall into place for you soon! Let’s go to Oakland!

This is just plain fun. From a news reporter’s point of view, which is how I read all this stuff. Previous to this article, please remember if you were insensitive and confused and mistakenly called a protester who was throwing deadly weapons a rioter, you were probably a racist and should do everything possible to protect yourself and your family from imminent physical retribution. It’s all very holy. Continue reading “Protesters Are Not Rioters. They Are Terrorists. Well … It Depends …”

How would you handle a mouse infestation if you were a vegan? Would your only option to be to get a cat? (Quora stuff)

a cat in a bowl shaped like a fish with an apple

This is a great question!

Get a cat!

I’m not following how being a vegan, which dictates which foods you choose to eat, relates to your approval or disapproval of the natural events that animals are using, right now, to survive, including hunting and killing for meat.

There are live critters on your kitchen counters, leaving disgusting Continue reading “How would you handle a mouse infestation if you were a vegan? Would your only option to be to get a cat? (Quora stuff)”

Social Media Addiction is Real!

just words

How do top students overcome social media addiction?
Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit” (from Quora) …

They can take classes in programming social media applications!

Then they could become dealers, abandoning their morals and pushing social media applications on others, especially good-looking girls, to try to get them hooked, and turn them into pushers as well. If they can’t afford the classes, they should look into stealing money from strangers. Once they’re social media lord kingpins, they should learn Spanish, and go to some of the seedier parts of Mexico to pick up new social media applications and bring them across the border illegally. This can be extremely profitable. Continue reading “Social Media Addiction is Real!”

Why is AA So Ineffective?

just words

A Quora answer by Mark Urso, Author of “A Candle Lit”:

The problem with AA is something that happens very early, when a person, a “sufferer,” is first introduced to the idea, sees a pamphlet or checks out his first meeting … the system can easily lose its credibility and feel either like it’s extreme, or members are jumping to conclusions …

People are simply scared away before they join.

In my book, “A Candle Lit,” I call them “leavers-before-they-enter.”

The three biggest problems are …

Ambiguous Permanence: It’s never been proven alcoholism is permanent, but members commonly insist it is. This is a credibility hit if the new person thinks about it … To make matters confusing, the words “alcoholic” Continue reading “Why is AA So Ineffective?”
