I am KING of the world!

My Recent Posts

I have innate knowledge of everything I need to know. I know when a Presidential decision is bad, I feel it in my bones. I know how to bring peace to the world. It is obvious that having weapons is a provocation. I am smarter than all those who came before me. I know, how others should behave. They are deplorable, for not knowing what I know, and not living as they should!

 

People are destroying the planet. I see proof on Google all the time. Fossil fuels are evil, we have the wind and sun to warm and cool us. It is not my car that is poisoning the air, it is all those rich people with their Big engines. When I meet them on the highway, I force them to follow my rules of the road. If they violate my space, I will run them down and force them off the road. If I cause an accident, and children are hurt, it is not my fault, they should have been more considerate!

 

How stupid are those Bible Thumpers? They read 2000 year old stories, and want to live as long gone zealots say they should. This is a new age, and any two people should be able to marry. Any sex is good sex, and all children must be taught those basic rules.

 

Schools are the place to mold minds, before they are tainted by the world. Parents rights must be ignored for the good of society. We can't make a better world, using outmoded concepts.

 

All men are created equal! Why should one man have more than another. From those with the greatest ability, to those with the greatest need! People must be made to support the misfits of our society! If someone objects to participating in their chosen life style, they deserve to lose their business, or their charity shut down!

 

Every person deserves the best medical care available, and money should be no object. So you lived an unhealthy life style, you are only human. Men should pay for all the medical problems unique to women. We are equal after all.

 

I know how to make a better society, not those old men who wrote the Constitution.. We live in a new age, it is time for new thinking. Free speech is the most important thing we have. I have every right to send emails to my enemies Boss, and follow him to public places and disgrace him in front of his family. I even have a right to go to his home and tell his neighbors how deplorable he is!

 

It is my duty also, to protect the public from hate speech. Those deplorable s who would poison young minds must be stopped. It is my right to destroy public property, keep people from operating their prejudiced business, or even going to work, to make my opinions heard!

 

When I need backup information, for what I already know, I have Google, Youtube, and social web sites to support my thoughts. I can write about History, with their help. My innate understanding of how this world came to be as it is, trumps the old stories written by the winners. I know everything I need to know.

 

I am smarter than those fools who spent their life in the profession, and especially those in office.

 

I am the Master of all I survey! I am King of my world! I AM YOU!

All of us create our world! Some are more based in facts, and others emotions! Emotion is closer to the surface, it requires no investigation or analysis. The world is angry, and this is why!

See yourself King Pardero?
Neil Lock Added Jul 13, 2018 - 3:00am
Very well put, EXPAT. That's the nature of the current political system. It brings to the top the worst scum; those that think they have rights that others don't, those that want to force their own choices on to others, those that won't take responsibility for the effects of their actions on others, those that want draconian regulations for others but not for themselves.
 
Unbelievably, I almost agree with Ryan Messano on this; EXPAT has given us a perfect description of an arrogant, confused illiberal mind.
opher goodwin Added Jul 13, 2018 - 3:55am
I thought you were describing Trump but no - just some of his attributes.
There can't be two kings of the world can there?
In terms of your assertions - if we were meant to take them seriously I wouldn't know where to begin. Is this really what you believe that liberals think?
That any sex is good?
That children should be taught rules of sex?
That all cars are not polluting?
That parents should be ignored?
That money should be no object in medical care?
No wonder you are so confused. You really do not understand the complex issues you are referring to and in simplifying things have made them absurd.
EXPAT Added Jul 13, 2018 - 4:51am
opher. ITS YOU!
Misquoting what is in the article, will not disguise your mindset. This was written with your posts/comments in mind!
Of course you saw Trump in this article. That is what Progressives do best,  transference of their faulys to others. The ulyimate EQUALIZATION!.
I am very clear on the issues of the day, and yes, the actions of Democraps are absurd.

In an earlier post, I bemoaned the loss of Dialectic intercourse. This is a follow up on the cause. Don't be afraid to agree with Ryan occasionally. "Even a broken clock, is right twice a day."

Expat - well if that was meant to be based on me I'm afraid you're well off the mark. I'll do an article on what I believe in just so's you know. It's no good twisting things round to the absurd in order to try to make a point. At least get it right!

King opher. You twisted, distorted and took out of context, what issues YOU want. There is no need for an article. You are so obvious, all know your delusion. Must I do compare and contrast on what was written, and how you distorted it? I got you right a long time ago!
opher goodwin Added Jul 13, 2018 - 6:40am
Expat - LOL - it's you that is delusional. Carry on dreaming. If I could be bothered and had the time I'd dissect all the silly things you put down and distorted and correct them.

In his autobiographical article, the hapless opher repeats everything in my article. But when he read my article he was in denial.
Leroy Added Jul 13, 2018 - 9:10am
While we are picking on Opher, Ryan asked what parent would name their kid Opher.  Worse, who would voluntarily choose the name Opher?  Opher in the US means loser, as in how many World Cup's has England won in the last fifty years?  England is Oh pher fifty.   He's wrong on everything.  He's Oh pher how many articles has he written?
 
Sorry, Opher.  I'm just pulling your leg 8-)

TGH. No the persons depicted, do not see it! They are in denial! But we can't give up. We must live with them, even though Progressivism is in decline. They are turning violent as their delusion is challenged. I hope to instigate a slight doubt in their delusion, as they recognize themselves.

Once again proving that those of us on the right also have the superior sense of humor. :)
 
I will never think of Opher the same again... Leroy's explanation will always be in the back of my mind.
 
Back to his defense... he did post (in his own article) a response to the perceived slights in this one.  I threw up a few questions... and... he did answer quite a few of them.  I've never received that amount of detail from Opher before.
 
All his answers were wrong... so he's still Oh pher how many reply's also... but at least we responded and was semi-honest.

It is disheartening that opher  thinks he owns the truth. But I see cracks appearing in his Wall of denial. Or should I say, Morton's Demon. 
TexasLynn Added Jul 13, 2018 - 4:36pm
Opher, Before I really reply, let me say that I do appreciate the detail you provided in your own post.  It is more than I expected and more detail than you have EVER provided before... to your credit.  I will comment on your post when I get a chance.  It is the least that I own you for your effort.
 
I also realize that Ryan has got you on tilt... but you had better be careful concerning who you lash out at.
 
That said...
 
I do have little doubt that you do believe your are right.  A lot of people who are wrong think that...
 
Opher >> The quality of the poster is revealed in their demeanour.
 
Partially agree, "A" quality of the poster is reveled in their demeanor.  In this quality you are usually superb.  Not as of late though... but I blame stress and being on tilt.
 
Other qualities might include intellectual honesty, detail vs generalization, forthrightness (not dodgy)  a sense of humor, not pretending to know (be an expert on) something you are not, humility, ...  In these qualities you are... (no comment).
 
Opher >> I don't dodge anything.
 
Forgive this slight... but... of all the people on WB.  You dodge more than anybody.  When it comes to pinning you down, you're like a greased pig... it's next to impossible.  You generalize, avoid tough details, ignore question you can't answer, state something easily proven wrong and then ignore the proof (especially concerning things you’ve said).  The contortions you utilized to dodge defy physics and mental gymnastics.
 
You sir are the Zen master of dodging.  You're so good, I (and I'm sure many other) are convinced that even you believe your bullshit of expertise/qualifications in everything under the sun.
 
This post is Opher Goodwin to the tee... and like EXPAT noted there is no way your mind can even conceive of it.

Funny, but WB's leading hypocrite, TraitorLynn chimes in, almost...almost...feeling "sorry" for opher over Ryan..  Ryan wants people leaving WB, and think you do too, TraitorLynn.  opher stated his case.  OTOH someone (wsucram15) believed in your talk about "compromise,' yet when it came down to it, you weren't "going to jump through hoops," as you called it, and in the end, it was obvious you only see "compromise' in partisan terms of a former R, now a T, whereby no compromises of any kind are necessary.but it went on and on to get there.  EXPAT always goes on about how smart and perceptive HE is.  So what's new with his "KING" article? 
Flying Junior Added Jul 13, 2018 - 8:55pm
EXPAT,
 
That's really sad.  Because I believe that your parody reflects accurately what conservatives think of liberals.  I don't wish to refute your points one-by-one.  But I probably will.  Maybe I can thumbnail the topics.
 
I.      World Peace.
        A.  Peace through military strength.
 
II.     Environmental degradation and anthropomorphic warming.
        A.  Fossil fuels vs. renewable or green energy.
        B.  Personal responsibility and hypocrisy.
 
III.    Religion in politics and policy.
        A.  Those who would impose their own morals upon society.
        B.  Those who would impose their lack of morals upon society.
 
IV.    Public education.
        A.  Do public schools abuse our children by indoctrination?
        B.  Students will grow up to participate in liberal agenda.
 
V.     Income inequality and unequal access to services.
        A.  Universal Healthcare.
              1.  Government sponsored health insurance.
              2.  Government-subsidized, regulated private insurance.
                   (ORomneyCare)
              3.  What we had before Obamacare.
        B.  Tax cuts for the wealthy.  (Loud applause.)
 
VI.    Hate speech.
 
So we liberals all laughed at Trump for making nice with the little dictator after allowing him to attain ICBM/nuclear capability.  We knew that you conservatives thought that it was all a done deal.  That was very likely the silliest stunt with the worst possible consequences ever perpetrated by an uneducated and unstudious president.  But y'all are only too happy to blame the events of 2017 on Obama, and, (get this,) Carter???  I guess it's good that Trump and Jong-Un are bros.  Maybe he won't launch an attack.  Real life becomes over-the-top satire.  Oh yeah, I almost forgot.  Sabotage NATO and give the Russian everything he needs.  Throw away the proud and carefully crafted alliances with the civilized world for the last seventy-three years.
 
What's your thing with intelligent energy policy?  Republicans and democrats have been working together on this for decades.
 
As far as the most sacred cow...   It's about discrimination, EXPAT.  People that wish to protect discrimination can lobby to change the federal government and at the least forty-five progressive states that have laws against discrimination.  Maybe we won't have to seat people that we don't like at the lunch counter?  Let's bring back segregation.  I don't buy that public policy prevents anyone from practicing their own religion.  That's the reddest herring in the barrel.
 
I can't believe the way the right accuses teachers and schools of indoctrination.  Among the parents and teachers there will always be a healthy mix of republicans, independents and democrats.  This is America.  Come back lost sheep.
 
Income inequality and access to services should be the only important issue for us to debate.  But it's a dog and pony show with you nutcases.  Lynn actually admitted that he was okay with fucking up Obamacare even if it hurt people.  Reminds me of Rush Limbaugh and his morning show, Wednesday, November 5th 2008.  It doesn't matter how much damage is done or who gets hurt.  Kill the seed before it grows.  Republicans support raw evil.
 
Hate speech.  Last I checked, it is still allowed.

If you cared about discrimination so much, then stop the genocide of black babies at your abortion clinics, you racist KKK descendant.  You white liberals love that blacks make up 12% of the population and 36% of all abortions.

  I don't wish to refute your points one-by-one.  But I probably will.  Maybe I can thumbnail the topics.
 
I.      World Peace.
        A.  Peace through military strength.
That is the only way!

II.     Environmental degradation and anthropomorphic warming.
        A.  Fossil fuels vs. renewable or green energy.
        B.  Personal responsibility and hypocrisy.
 
A non living thing cannot be anthropomorphic. But many refer to Mother Earth, as if it were.
Fossil fuels are the most abundant energy on earth. Why not use the billions spent on exotic alternatives, to develop new methods of more efficient use, and production?
Did you notice that Global warming went away when the Grant money did!

III.    Religion in politics and policy.
        A.  Those who would impose their own morals upon society.
        B.  Those who would impose their lack of morals upon society.
That is why we have separation of church and state in USA.
 
IV.    Public education.
        A.  Do public schools abuse our children by indoctrination?
        B.  Students will grow up to participate in liberal agenda.
 
No question! Schools are institutions of education. What is taught, depends on the school boards that have been taken over by 70”s hippys, also called Progressives. Read some of opher's delusional rants, and what he is teaching his students!
B. Remember the children dancing to Obama. Any qoestions

V.     Income inequality and unequal access to services.
        A.  Universal Healthcare.
              1.  Government sponsored health insurance.
              2.  Government-subsidized, regulated private insurance.

              2.  Government-subsidized, regulated private insurance.
                   (ORomneyCare)
              3.  What we had before Obamacare.
You don't understand the issue! The affordable Care Act, is not Affordable, premiums have doubled in most places, and tripled in some states. It does not guarantee care. Many Dr. refuse service because of payment problems. Act, This is an insurance scheme, not a benefit.
Your 3 alternatives are the reason health care in USA is the most expensive in the world!
When I worked Internationally I had IHI, International Health Insurance. I got care any where in the world with a $10 co pay. Anywhere EXCEPT the US that is! If foreign Companies were allowed to compete in US, the costs would drop dramatically. What if you could go to Thailand to get your hip or knee replacement, where cost is 1/3 US.
Another alternative is the Taiwan plan, where the government builds the hospital, and allows Dr.s to practice there rent free. When I took my son for the flu, the entire cost including medication was less than my Insurance co pay. I just paid cash.

        B.  Tax cuts for the wealthy.  (Loud applause.)
You sound like Nancy. Crumbs for the masses. Yea, those who pay the most, save the most. Anything else is income redistribution.
 
VI.    Hate speech.
Today, any attempt to point out deficient behavior of any minority is called hate speech! How can you fix a problem, if you can't address it?
 
So we liberals all laughed at Trump for making nice with the little dictator after allowing him to attain ICBM/nuclear capability. 
So TRUMP allowed NOCO to go Nuke. Are you insane? For 60 years ALL regimes ignored the problem until Trump said, “Stop or we will rain fire and destruction on you. They stopped, and now you progressive idiots think he did a bad thing.
We knew that you conservatives thought that it was all a done deal. 
More insanity. Trump has reminded us repeatedly that this was a difficult process that would take a long time, and could easily fail.
That was very likely the silliest stunt with the worst possible consequences ever perpetrated by an uneducated and unstudious president. 
The worst consequences would be to kill millions.
But y'all are only too happy to blame the events of 2017 on Obama, and, (get this,) Carter???  I guess it's good that Trump and Jong-Un are bros.  Maybe he won't launch an attack. 
Nobody is happy over the failed foreign policy of Jimmy, the Clintons, and Obama! It just made Trump's task more difficult.
 
I will not deal with the rest of your delusion at this time. But I am sure it will come up again at a later date. You never change!

Tex - you are a bit deluded here. The brat is a whiny annoyance with his inane stupidity but no more. I've known flies which were more annoying and more intelligent.
As I repeatedly say - anyone who merely recites things they have memorised through their brainwashing and are unable to engage their brain, think or reason, is not worthy of associating with.
Ryan is typical of a repressed homosexual who suffered an abusive childhood. I would feel sorry for the sick deranged fool but he is too arrogant for that.
I merely ignore him. He is not worthy of involving.
As for ducking issues. I do not duck anything. I put forward many issues for discussion and usually received brainwashed responses from people unable to debate. I am quite happy to explain my reasoning and debate. We have done that on a number of occasions.
EXPAT Added Jul 14, 2018 - 10:26am
When are you going to stop the personal attacks on Ryan? You don't know his background, even if you were a psychologist, it would be malpractice to diagnose someone you have never met. I know some of you progressives try to do that to Trump as well.
You would be better served to stick to the issues, than continue ad hominem and slander. And please don't tell me he started it. That is school yard logic, unworthy of an adult!

You pervert reason and logic, You strain at gnats and swallow camels, and you make mountains of molehills and molehills of mountains.
 
You exalt your stupidity over the Founders of America, and scorn at the wisdom of the past.
 
You then go onto lie.  Pulling out the typical liberal atom bomb of accusing those who oppose homosexuality of homosexuality.  It’s a nasty and filthy trick used by nasty and filthy evil types like you. What a wicked and depraved lying snake you are, you detestable serpent!!

I like it. That's all that's important. My friends use it. My colleagues call me other things like Chris and Mr Goodwin or even Sir. It clearly defines relationship in interesting ways.
All part of the game Leroy. But I am glad on many fronts that I dumped the Christ.

EXPAT,
There was a time in my late teen years when I thought that I should rule the world.  As I aged I came to the conclusion that I have enough trouble just managing my own life. 
 
College age students often assume that they stand amongst the first generation in the world's history to have become enlightened.
 
They can be arrogant in their beliefs but today are routinely using physical violence and intimidation.  That is scary enough.
 
But what really concerns me is a person of 5 or more decades who hasn't learned any humility in their life and still, like college kids, attempt to control others through PC intimidation and shouting down debaters.
 
I am an independent who tends towards the conservative, however, I've learned something from almost everyone on this site.  Even Opher and I found some common ground recently.  I hope others are able to say the same.
 
I am currently re-evaluating my support of Capitalism because greed in our society has yielded government support of corporations who violate existing laws; sometimes with millions of victims (witness the three latest crimes committed by Wells Fargo alone).  I am currently evaluating whether "Greed is Good" capitalism has any moral high ground to certain forms of socialism.
 
As a Christian I note that the old testament prohibits lending to the poor at interest.  And what about these verses in Leviticus:
35 ' If one of your brethren becomes poor, and falls into poverty among you, then you shall help him, like a stranger or a sojourner, that he may live with you.
36 'Take no usury or interest from him; but fear your God, that your brother may live with you.
37 'You shall not lend him your money for usury, nor lend him your food at a profit. 
 
The new testament describes the early church as " all those who had believed were together, and had all things in common; and they began selling their property and possessions, and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need."
 
Then again, the bible was not the law of the land except to Old testament Jews.  The generous spirit was directed to individual believers but not to the government in general.
 
Nice article, by the way.

JEU. Blaming Capitalism for the abuses performed by evil doers, is like blaming the gun for the murder.
Capitalism is about who owns the enterprise, and who makes the decisions.
My last adventure as a Capitalist, Bar owner was the hardest work I ever had to do. And I was lucky to break even.

When higher education was taken over by war protest progressives, it was their chance to change thinking. Unfortunately they were so involved with re educating society, they lost the art of thinking.

Expat..you are entitled to your opinion.  However so is Opher, you do not have the right specifically to take that away from him. Not on the internet, this site or as a citizen of a country that has stood by us as we have stood by them in good times and bad, in spite of our somewhat poor history.
 
But here is the thing..its not the Opher's of the world you need to be concerned with, it is the younger generation. Ive been in classes with hundreds of them...good luck on your ideals and theories. Seriously.
 
I actually care more about what he has to say than you, at least he sticks to his guns..he doesnt tuck tail and run.  I care more about what many of the people on here have to say aside from yourself because they have to live here in this bullshit of fighting and bickering, while you just leave your computer screen.  We cant turn it off, Opher cant turn off the fighting as you saw this week.
 
Jeffry..no reflection on you, I get why you left and actually agree. Expat..i have email after email from you talking about this great nation and yet you left.  Why?

The younger generation are screwed up because of people like opher! They take teaching positions at half pay because they cannot survive in the real world.
Do you understand what dialectic is?
My support for the Great Nation that was the hope of the world, was for what it could have been, and was intended to be by the founders. The fact that incompetent, delusional aspirants wanted to change it into a brave new world, does not change the ideology of America.

Yes Tex. They use the school yard logic of "Well he does it too." or "He did it first." to justify bad action. I asked Jeanne if she knew what Dialectic was. Obviously she does not!
 
But please don't call them Liberals! Liberals are abandoning the Democrap party in droves, due to the Progressive remake of the Democratic Party, and their failed attempt at social restructuring.
 
 
After lots of reading, listening to interviews, and thinking, I’ve finally managed to distill down what I see as the fundamental difference between “liberal” and “progressive” to a single question! And so, before we continue, ask yourself:
When it comes to matters of law, should we give preferential treatment to society’s least-advantaged?
 
 If you said yes, you are progressive; if you said no, you are liberal (assuming your full answer is “no, everyone should be subject to the same laws”).

The success of Donald Trump, is the failure of Progressivism. By repealing all the Obama regulations, Executive Orders, and failed legislation like ACA, and watching the economy grow, and social ills decline, he is providing factual evidence, that Progressivism DOES NOT WORK!
By taking a hard line on conflicts both in trade and defense, around the world, he shows Progressives appeasement to be delusional.
I don't care if you like him or not, the world is a better place with Trump as POTUS.

@EXPAT. I see a writing style that I am familiar with.  It hints of uninformed democrats and their lackeys using spit in the wind techniques, old wifes tales, and questionable source to discredit a sitting president. It also speaks of the holy ones seeking to put people to the rack for challenging the status quo, vis a vis, the Earth is the center of the universe and the Pope is infallible.
 
You challenge the pathology of some existing tenets and the need to micromanage our behavior. Overall, your article speaks to contradictions in our present society and taunts some of those that appear as ludicrous. However, we must understand that the bees visit both the rose and the thorn bushes to secure the ingredients for honey. Thus, we must arrive at a compromise --taking from each group ideas which are noble and just to perpetuate our Democratic ideals.
EXPAT Added Jul 18, 2018 - 2:04am
Doc. I agree, but compromise is out of the question now. There can be no dialectic unless all principles act in good faith. The Democraps want Trump removed, using any method they can.

But back to REALITY folks. As we witness the Russian Roulette the Democraps and the MSM are playing, it becomes obvious they are finished.
This hysteria is driving away any REAL criticism of the current administration. The true Democratic party is leaving in droves; Labor Unions, women, Liberals, all who want a better America!
 
What used to be the fourth estate has been replaced by Tabloid Sensationalism, leaving the public to determine for themselves what is best for USA. The fake polls that predict a Blue Wave are the same fake polls that said Trump didn't stand a chance of getting elected. In fact, they invested $2bn in destroying all opposition from more qualified Republicans.
 
But Trump is making life better for a majority of Americans of all sexes and colors. And I predict that even delusional ideologues, will vote in their own best interest, and there will be a Republican landslide.
 
There are over 200 Secret services trying to influence USA elections. It is only common sense that oil producing Nations will try to help candidates who are pro oil. Russia and China have lots of company.
 
The public does not get to hear the more moderate voices, approx. 70%. But that 70% will vote for New voices, with new ideas. And right now they are a few communists, and a vast majority of Conservatives.

It' always good to get back to that after unwanted and mindless distractions.

I wish I could believe that.  But I've seen the demise predicted of both parties too many times.
 
EXPAT >> This hysteria is driving away any REAL criticism of the current administration.
 
Now this is very true.  I've always said that there are many valid criticisms of Trump that never see the light of day, because the rabid hysteria of the left drowns them out.
 
EXPAT >> The true Democratic party is leaving in droves; Labor Unions, women, Liberals, all who want a better America!
 
I don't see it... BUT I'm usually wrong about this stuff.  I didn't see the Trump victory coming. 
 
Labor Unions have suffered from the recent Supreme Court ruling (as well they should).  People should not be forced to pay into organizations they fundamentally disagree with.  It’s just basic common sense and freedom of association; and any judge/justice who doesn’t understand that concept really isn’t qualified to sit on the bench.
 
Women?  I'm curious to see your logic behind this. 
 
Liberals?  I guess that depends on your definition.  The left, the progressives (which I would also call liberal) are the driving force behind the TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrom).  You see it especially here on WB.  Even those who claim to be "moderates" are irrational with their hatred.
 
EXPAT >> What used to be the fourth estate has been replaced by Tabloid Sensationalism, leaving the public to determine for themselves what is best for USA.
 
The Main Stream Media has always (last half century) been the sole property of the left.  Trump (and the derangement he induced) simply brought it out in the open.
 
EXPAT >> The fake polls that predict a Blue Wave are the same fake polls that said Trump didn't stand a chance of getting elected.
 
The literally are the same polls and the same people.  In their defense, they got the Obama/Romney thing right when all us conservatives believed there was no way in hell Obama was that far ahead.  But the Trump polls?  THAT was a fiasco.  We'll see this next time around in a few months.
 
My only concern is that Trump isn't on the ticket.  This election may have more to do with the Republicans in the House and Senate who are doing a terrible job.  Trump will need to get much, much more involved if he is going to make an impact and protect those that he needs but are currently not pulling their weight (as usual).
 
EXPAT >> But Trump is making life better for a majority of Americans of all sexes and colors.
 
Now that is true, if you look at "it's the economy stupid"... and I do.  Things have not been this good in a long, long time.  BUT you won't ever hear the TDS crowd acknowledge that.  In their condition of denial, there is no way they'll ever see it.
 
EXPAT >> And I predict that even delusional ideologues, will vote in their own best interest, and there will be a Republican landslide.
 
I don't think so... but I'm rarely right on these types of predictions.  Write a follow-up after the elections.  Give me a big "I told you so".
