Opportunists and True Believers


There are people who want to hurt you and they can be placed into groupings: Today I'm writing about Opportunists,True Believers and Parasites.

Opportunists are primarily sociopaths who sense weakness. Once sensed, they strike. Sometimes they break into your home, other times they snatch your purse or lift your wallet. To opportunists, the only right is what's right for them.

True Believers are also sociopaths, convinced of their cause, but they are not particularly concerned about your weakness, because they'll walk over you to fulfill their vision and to satisfy their purpose -- whatever it takes.

Some true believers are running through the sewers that pass as cities and countrysides in the Middle East and the Asian Subcontinent, preparing to kill you, training in austere conditions, feeding on hatred. Others are a bit more subtle (only a bit) because they want to make you do what they feel you should do; quit smoking, give up your firearms, use forms of speech that they find acceptable. Neither species of true believer cares for the Bill of Rights, cares for high concepts such as the Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion, Right to Keep and Bare Arms, Freedom to Assemble, etc. They only care about the cause.

There are opportunists in politics, there are true believers in politics and there are a lot of parasites.

Parasites are not as bright as the opportunists or true believers, and run the range from useful idiots to passive aggressive panderers. (50 shades of gray)

Pravda endorsed Obama for the US Presidency-
Do the Russians consider him to be a joke?
The combination of those people are most often found running governments.

Strong people sense the opportunists and true believers. Secretary of State John Kerry has been trying to reach his Russian counterpart since the North Koreans detonated an atomic bomb in an underground vault last week. The Russians don't take his calls. They didn't take Hillary Clinton's either. President Obama quite a true believer. I'd put him more in the realm of opportunist. The Russians would seem to agree. An opportunist who surrounds himself parasites doesn't inspire much confidence, or apparently much interest on the part of the Russians.

But the American people still favor this administration because greed and fear impel them.  They don't dare to buck the opportunists, the true believers or their army of parasites that support and buttress them.



My opinions haven't been handed to me by a Marxist professor. They were obtained in the university of adversity. Much of what I learned in institutions of higher education falls under the category of 'nice to know'. The hard science taught me that there are rules and explained how those rules worked. The humanities were doled out as truth, but were just as often rantings of unhinged utopian professors. History was presented in a form that was so biased that it took a lot of work to un-learn what had been presented as immutable fact.

    1. You can't be a progressive without an army of bobble-heads to pander to you and bow before you. Al Gore is their poster child.

    1. "When one acts on pity against justice, it is the good whom one punishes for the sake of the evil; when one saves the guilty from suffering, it is the innocent whom one forces to suffer."

    1. Printing money without backing for social programs has never been a problem in the ObamaNation - the rest can use their food stamps to survive, sort of Soviet Style with long lines and nothing to buy. It's the promise of Barack Obama.

      The joke of it is that the Chinese and Russians are looking at us, laughing. They went through it and know that it's all hogwash.
