Right v Left -The Truth

Greatwizard News — Sidiov @ January 18, 2012

There is a dirty little secret that has been hidden from you in plain site for 73 years now. Education, media, politicians – they all use it to confuse and misdirect you.

Everything you hear about government breaks it down into a horizontal rule. There exists the “right”, the “left”, and the “moderate”. Your ideologies, beliefs and desires place you somewhere on that line. As a basic psychological principal it’s true. The French origination of the idea of left and right considers left the “party of movement” and right the “party of order.” That meant monarchical, strong government supporters on the right, and republican, personal freedom revolutionaries on the left.
In today’s terms we generally hear the far left as socialist or communist and the far right as fascist. There is a trick to the new order though. It leaves big government alive and well at both sides of the spectrum, and creates the belief that your choice is between big government A and big government B. Robert Maclver pushed this idea in the 1940′s and made a right v left determination that implied a class struggle – big government rich executives on the right, and big government welfare on the left.
Since there is no officially defined terms of right and left in the world, or even in the U.S. as it stands, I propose it is time to look at this in a different light. Move fascists, communists, socialist, Democrats and Republicans to the left and call that “Big Government”, and move Libertarians, classical conservatives and anarchists to the right and call that “Little Government.” Now the common man has a choice in how much control his government exerts over him. He can bow to welfare, war, taxes, conscription, laws, and pressure of big government, or he can attempt to find the self-control and respect necessary for little government. The choice becomes how much the common man can provide to government and not a choice of what big government should provide to the common man.

2012 Audi TT RS

Automotive — Sidiov @ December 12, 2011

The Audi TT is known as the west coast little old lady’s two seater ragtop.  It has a history of under-performing and underwhelming it’s drivers, and in the looks department many claim it has aged rather poorly.

Enter the 2012 Audi TT RS.  A hardtop coupe (no convertible available) ostensibly designed from the ground(ish) up for a track day experience.  With a sportier appearance and increased performance, the marketing of this TT is intended to bypass the weekend cruiser crowd and focus on actual performance and driving experience oriented enthusiasts.

Adding 95 hp above the next level TTS, the RS’s 2.5-liter turbocharged, inline five-cylinder engine produces 360 hp and 332 ft-lbs. of torque, and is mated to a 6 speed manual transmission.  Claimed 0 to 60 time sits around 4.1 seconds.

The TT RS sports a fixed spoiler as well as modified front and rear bumpers, and comes standard with 19″ rotor-styled rims.  The rear diffuser is unique, as is the honeycombed front grill.  If they haven’t been removed by the owner, the RS badge is another obvious identity feature.

Just how track-ready can this car be.  Standard climate control, silk Nappa leather seating and Sirius satellite radio?  Your standard leather colors with brushed-aluminum trim round out the techy internal look.  A tech package is also available with navigation, Bose stereo sound, rear parking sensors, and ambient LED lighting.  It certainly is no Lotus Elise in the equipment depertment.

All in all, its an interesting choice of a car.  No convertible option, so a weekend fun-car it is not, but at nearly $60,000 this may be a bit pricy for lower-end track enthusiasts, and not up to the par of high end trackers like the Nissan GT-R or Porsche 911 GT2.  The car works well as it is, but does not seem to fit in quite as well as it works.

Making War With The New People’s Army

Uncle Tom's Cabin — Tom @ February 27, 2011

It seems that the army must be in dire need of cash.  The other day I received a call from a telemarketer asking me to donate to the army.  I got to thinking, why not bring our troops home from the 700 military bases in 130 countries and defend our own country.  I bet we could cut the military spending in half and start reducing our gargantuan national debt.  For the hawks in the country who would like to start more wars, like one in Iran,  I say, let them pay for it by donating to the Military/Industrial complex.  Count me out.  To find out about the whole plan the plan go to:
