A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell

A Fond Farewell Well, this is the last you will hear from me. It might be for good, it might just be temporary, I don’t know yet. It’s been a privilege to be able to express the things that rattled around in my head. I’m grateful to Ruthless for giving me an audience and a medium where I could express my thoughts. Unfortunately, with my schedule soon to be packed with writing I’ll be pretty busy.  So, without further ado, I present to you my final ramblings. This place will get on just fine without me,k so, farewell all you Read more »

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks.

Sometimes being right sucks. That isn’t something you’ll hear many people say, but it’s true. Sometimes you look at things and you know how it’s going to play out, so you make a prediction. Sometimes it’s good to be right, other times it sucks. This is one of the times when being right sucks. See, nobody wins over me being right on this issue and it has done nothing but proven just how utterly screwed we all must be. I know what you must be saying “But Revanchist, what were you right about?”. Well, to be simple, everything I talked Read more »

War

War

War Si vis pacem, para bellum. An ancient saying which, for those of you unaware, translates to “If you want peace, prepare for war” and unfortunately, it seems that war is once again starting to rear its ugly head. To be frank, we’ve never really gotten a break from war. With the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq finally drawing to a close after so many years and so many deaths it seems that American’s are willing to once more send our troops unto the breach. How so? Well, conflict in Iraq is revving up with the addition of a Syrian Read more »

The World Today

A Return It feels like it’s been forever, doesn’t it? Some of you might be wondering where I had been, but that’s a complicated answer. Life got pretty busy for awhile and with everything I had going on there just wasn’t any way I could meet all of my deadlines on time and working toward my degree simply takes priority. But, that was then and this is now — I’m back, as you might have been able to guess and today we are going to be talking about a subject near and dear to the heart of all of us; Read more »

Ruthless Grab Bag: Too much, too soon, too often

Ruthless Grab Bag: Too much, too soon, too often

One of the things that often comes up with my writing here on WDDIJ is a request to cover a particular topic. And usually I just don’t do it. In some cases what someone wants to cover I want to cover and so it for a moment interests are aligned and it works out. Oddly enough my silence on some particular matters has been due to an over abundance of work on outside projects. And my appearance on a Friday instead of my usual Monday is because we have two writers who are just straight up swamped. So everyone send positive Read more »

The Letter Series: Dear Propagandists

The Letter Series: Dear Propagandists

To those of you who create the narrative that encourages and promotes war and crimes against humanity; the likes of which we should never condone in so-called civilized society, I implore you to quiet your rantings. Usurpers The propaganda machine is running hot; every day there’s a new report or seemingly random newly discovered factoid that just has to be discussed right away. There are terrorist cells hiding in every Mosque and no Westernized nation is safe. All of the freedoms and liberties that we have sacrificed in favor of a false sense of security is precariously hanging off the proverbial shoulders of Read more »
