A+++ Saved!

However, it is misattributed to Mark Twain:


Politicians are like diapers: they should be changed often, and for the same reason

  • Variant: Politicians and diapers must be changed often, and for the same reason
  • Not found in Twain's works.
  • A 1993 newspaper humor column attributes this saying to Reader's Digest: "Picking it up from a Reader's Digest fan, Willie, our ex-shoe shine boy, says some politicians are like diapers. They both need changed often ... and for the same reason."[2]
  • Also attributed to Reader's Digest in Naomi Judd's 1993 book Love Can Build a Bridge: 'A quip I once saw in Reader's Digest said: "Most politicians are like diapers: they should be changed often, and for the same reason!"'.
  • Attributed to 1992 congressional candidate John Wallner
  • Not found attributed to Twain until 2010

I do, but I'd actually like you to do so if you don't mind. I'm here mostly to see how others view things and push those views. Sometimes I take positions I agree with, sometimes I don't, but always to move things along and see what actually fits best.

The one thing I have noticed is that this type of engagement is vanishingly rare, to the point where people are confused what I'm doing.

This isn't true though.

There are plenty of whinny, bitter histories written by losers who can't admit the real reasons why they lost. Reddit is full of references to them and they are very popular in woke academia at the moment.

You get a hand full of decent ones and they are well respected pretty much across the board.

History of demographic census and law tend to be more free from biais than the history of events because events are wrote by the victor.

Peiper was convicted in the Malmedy massacre trial and sentenced to death. The sentence was commuted, with Peiper serving twelve years in prison. Peiper was accused of committing the Boves massacre in Italy; the investigation was closed due to insufficient evidence that he directly issued the order to kill civilians. After his release from prison, Peiper worked for both Porsche and Volkswagen before moving to France, where he worked as a freelance translator. Throughout, he maintained frequent, albeit discreet, contact with his SS network, including HIAG, a Waffen-SS lobby group. Peiper was murdered in France in July 1976, after his identity as an SS member and war criminal had been publicized there.

A relatively insignificant combat leader, Peiper achieved cult status among those who romanticize the Waffen-SS.[1] With his good looks and a multitude of awards, Peiper came to represent the image of the daring Panzer divisions.[2] The admiration continues to the 2020s, with the official Facebook account of the United States Department of Defense featuring a glamorized picture of Peiper to commemorate the 2019 anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.[3][4][5] The Waffen-SS historian Jens Westemeier stated that, "Peiper was an embodiment of the Nazi ideology and an egocentric, ruthless commander who ignored his own losses and created a culture within his unit where war crimes were not only tolerated but expected."[6]

Standing near the edge can be pretty 'blackpilling', as they call it. Gray nailed it in his poem.

Sometimes history is rewritten by the losers to obfuscate the past. And often as not the victors write down the history correctly. We can also take in the wrong lessons from history, drawing comparison based on over simplified appearances.

Interesting quote I suppose. But like most quotes meant to provide a lesson, it portrays a useful principle with wide applications, but can not be relied on as factual in every situation.

It may also suffer from it's translation. And can be weaponized as propaganda.

More Great Vonnegut:

"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded.
At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you've got to be kind." - Kurt Vonnegut

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitter steal your sweetness.
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree you still believe it to be a beautiful place. Kurt Vonnegut

Another flaw in the human character is that everybody wants to build and nobody wants to do maintenance. Kurt Vonnegut

“A purpose of human life, no matter who is controlling it, is to love whoever is around to be loved.”

“Because we grew up surrounded by big dramatic story arcs in books and movies, we think our lives are supposed to be filled with huge ups and downs; so people pretend there is drama where there is none.” Kurt Vonnegut

And I asked myself about the present: how wide it was, how deep it was, how much was mine to keep. Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Kurt Vonnegut

"We were United World Federalists back then. I don't know what we are now. Telephoners I guess. We telephone a lot." Kurt Vonnegut

I break the chains that bind me. I leave the clown I was behind me. It was wonderful of you to remind me, that if I looked I would find me. Kurt Vonnegut, A Song for Selma

Ah. The Cretins. Paul said of them in his letter “Put them in mind to be in subjection to rulers, to authorities, to be obedient, to be ready unto every good work, to speak evil of no man, not to be contentious, to be gentle, showing all meekness toward all men. For we also once were foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, hating one another. "

*edit The later part of the excerpt is the discription of a Cretin, and Paul is saying "we were all like this at one time before we knew Christ" but the Cretes were renown for this "assholedness" especially.

"I shall construct my own elvish watercraft in which I'll undergo a magnificent Viking funeral.

"We are all brothers and sisters. I don't care if you're a librarian. I don't care if you're a litterbug. I don't care if you're a fan of celery. I don't care if you're that fuckin' guy. I don't care how low you are, we're all brothers and sisters on this planet. We're all sharing this space, and we all deserve the respect to treat each other with good manners. Say please and thank you. Get the door for each other. If somebody needs help with their groceries, jump up and give them a hand. You'll feel so much better -you'll blow their mind - feels incredible." Nick Offerman

"In wood working - everybody knows what a chisel is - it's a long flat piece of steel, the end of which forms a wedge shaped tip, that you sharpen to a very sharp edge, so sharp and strong, you can use it shape wood, like soap, or butter. and the first time you do that, correctly, you're hooked, you're bewitched. and everything in a wood shop is just some version of that chisel. A saw blade in a circular saw is just 36 little chisels in a machine that spins around. It's all just a form of a chisel shaping wood, and when you realize "I can shape this wood into anything I want to, it's so powerful, and I know I have a life time of study in front of me, that will be incredibly pleasing, just like eating pussy" Nick Offerman

"Avoid the mirror. The mirror, avoid it." Nick Offerman

"Intoxicants can provide some of the most beautiful and joyous moments in your life, they can certainly ignite your creativity, and just be fucking really fun, or you can use them like an asshole, and ruin it for the rest of us who just wanted to get high and go outside and look at a maple leaf." Nick Offerman

Oscar Wilde is a faggot. I don’t take any advice from him. Even if he were to repeat good advice from someone else, he corrodes it with his faggotry. No thanks! That’s like some money comes from followers of Satan. Some comes from followers of God. One kind destroys. The other saves. Know what’s what before accepting advice from anyone. If they don’t serve God, the advice can’t help a soul. It just tricks them into sympathy while stealing behind their backs.

Godspeed.

Who's making a mistake? Is this more of that special Q plan-trusting by which apparent defeats are hidden, ultimate victories?

The caveat is you need to have 5D chess skills and be able to grasp the actual big picture. Did they screw up and lose a piece, or is that loss a trap that leads to your downfall.

I believe you are correct. I knew it when I posted it too. That's why I reverse ordered the 4 mods of /s/Music. M7 rarely listens to me anyway, and I figure the other 3 would be more likely to make those subs if they cared to. It seemed weird to completely axe the 4th though.

Old outdated ideas like: shallow money worship, an all powerful man in the clouds, the 40+ hour work week, corporate news, corrupt politicians with too much power, the steady rise of inflation, the unending for-profit war machine, blurry poisoned miserable alcoholic lifestyles, tv hypnotism, etc, etc, etc …...

No /s/Lyrics, /s/SpokenWord, or /s/PerformanceArt yet?!? /s/Music sidebox says no, though it's full and it seems time to start /s/Music/wiki for sub references and so much more.

"The two big mistakes were the belief in a sky god -- that there's a man in the sky with 10 things he doesn't want you to do and you'll burn for a long time if you do them -- and private property, which I think is at the core of our failure as a species."

That's odd, considering that Socrates is practically the inventor of provocation.
Calling people a bunch of names is helpful for a variety of reasons, most just don't think about them or care to use them.

“… the natural conclusion to all of this is civil war.” by TokLwdSaNthg in quotes

[–][deleted] 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

For civil war you need two armies. You have one. One and a bunch of loosely connected rebels, which are now being described as insurgents. All that talk about FEMA camps? Well you know what they are there for now.

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and observing things with logic. True power is restraint. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass. by enefi in quotes

Maybe it's from Bruce Lee? I don't know, I saw very similar quote from Buffett I think and in the pic there isn't any author, so I left it out from the title. I hope that's okay.
