On Cowards

I detest cowards- I always have. I have radar for cowards. Honestly, without getting too political today, I think that is why I have never liked Obama. He set off my coward alarm. He serves himself.

Nobody hates free speech like a coward. http://freenorthcarolina.blogspot.com/2012/10/facebook-censors-navy-seals-to-protect.html

I started writing publicly 6 years ago. During that time, I have written some very personal things and I have put many of them out here for public consumption. I didn't do that because I am stupid or because I didn't think about the consequences. I do that for reasons that cowards could never understand.

Because truth, your truth, has great value. This life is a giant classroom and you aren't going to learn anything until you start speaking the truth, demanding the truth, and start hearing the truth. Cowards cannot do that. They have absolutely no ability to self scrutinize or self disclose- and quite honestly and consequentially- they have nothing to offer the rest of us. I have never learned anything from a coward except that- I don't want to be like one of them.

I get angry when someone is spilling their guts, trying to express a pain riddled truth about themselves, only to be trampled by a bunch of anonymous cowards in the comment section. In the old days, that type of attack would have generated a missile launch from me.

Nowadays, I just don't care so much for cowards. I give them no play.

Cowards always rationalize their inability to speak truthfully as something else entirely. They will call it restraint, good judgement, discipline. Cowards hate courage. They don't possess it and therefore they don't understand it. Cowards think people with courage are idiots. Gunslingers. They'll say things like..."you should think things through before you open your mouth." Of course they say that. That's why they are cowards.

The problem with our society is that it continually rewards obedient cowards and punishes the courageous. Is that so? Without a doubt it is. People in power fear people who challenge them- they eliminate them. Cowards are far easier to manipulate and control. Long ago, somebody planted fear in these folks and poured miracle-gro on it. Cowards are obedient, compliant. They become controlling types- continually advocating some safe strategy, worrying about shit that never happens, and dreaming up new things to be afraid of. Cowards never have your interests at heart. Only theirs. Therefore, you can safely dismiss cowards with the confidence that you have missed nothing of value. Unfortunately, there will be more of them. There always is.

The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, But by those who watch them without doing anything.

Einstein really was a genius and prescient, as well.

Yes, Obama is a coward, plain and simple. That boy will toss anyone under the bus for his own personal gain, or to avoid blame, the latest example being Hillary Clinton who took the fall for the benghazi attack (and if the term "boy" offends anyone who perceives it as being racist, blow me; I refuse to apply the word "man" to bathhouse Barry). As far as cowards in general, what can you do about them other than avoid them as much as possible? The fuckers are everywhere and, more often than not, they hold positions of power and authority over the rest of us, having demonstrated their merit by sucking the right dicks in order to get where they are. Try standing up to the slimy weasels and just watch how they dance around the issue and turn bully by crucifying you on their high holy altar of political correctness so that you come out looking like the bad guy. Sanctimonious hypocrites. Yes, Obama is a coward, as are most liberals. They are so far beneath my contempt that I wouldn't piss in their mouths if their teeth were on fire. Man, I hate cowards.
