“Generation Loss”

Take a document, make a copy of it, then make a copy of that copy and so on.  Each “generation” or subsequent copy suffers a loss in quality from the one that preceded it.  Relationships work the same way.  Each time you makeup/breakup the quality of that relationship degrades.  Eventually, in time, it will barely resemble what it started out as.

A perfect representation of the “makeup/breakup effect”:

Relationships have a life span.  Once someone chooses to breakup with their partner, it’s over.  Of course you can choose to get back together ad nauseum, but it’ll never be the same.  Guaranteed.

It is always time and effort better spent developing new, fresh prospective women than it will ever be in attempting to reconstruct a failed relationship. Never root through the trash once the garbage has been dragged to the curb. You get messy, your neighbors see you do it, and what you thought was worth digging for is never as valuable as you thought it was.”

-Tomassi, “Iron Rule #7”

 

Relationship Musings

I think some guys make the mistake of wanting a long-term relationship so they won’t have to put so much work into gaming women. This is a logical fallacy of the highest order. It takes every bit as much work, if not MORE, to attempt to keep one woman in all her never-ending fickleness happy than it does to go out and game other chicks.

The problem is, the longer you’re with a girl the more reason she has to believe the pussy pipeline of your past has all but dried up. Without the threat of outside competition to keep her on her toes, the worse her treatment of you will become. This is why you must continue to game other women even whilst in a relationship.

I’m not saying you have to cheat nor am I saying not to. That choice is yours. You do need to keep your skills sharp, however. At bare minimum, you should be approaching girls who catch your eye and make conversation with them. Game is like a muscle, it takes a long time to build and can quickly atrophy if it isn’t used. Should things unexpectedly go south with you and your girl, wouldn’t you rather have the confidence to go out and pick up another right away? Or, even better, already have others in your rotation?

Although it would be nice to be in a relationship with a woman that doesn’t take you for granted, in the long run it’s just not realistic. By becoming her boyfriend you lose your independent essence, a key component of what attracted her to you in the first place. Without that, her attraction to you will eventually fade. And to think, women have the nerve to say men are the only ones more interested in “the chase.”

Once you enter into a relationship with a woman, and commit yourself to an agreement of exclusivity, you lose A LOT of leverage. Women may like security in financial matters, but despite their protestations to the contrary, they don’t like romantic security.  Loyalty is a trait men greatly admire, and rightfully so. But if a woman knows she’s got you “on-lock” it’ll turn her snatch drier than the Sahara.  It’s boring to them.

It isn’t that women want to be cheated on per se, although some are no doubt gluttons for punishment. It’s that (and this shouldn’t come as any great shock) women want men of such value they’re afforded opportunities to cheat but instead choose not to. However, in the event such a high-value man should happen to stray, it’s not uncommon for a woman to choose to share him with another rather than go without him and whatever he provides.

If you’re a man of more modest value, it’s likely you’ll develop a case of “one-itis” and over-value your girl. The easiest way to avoid one-itis is by not allowing yourself to become a “kept man” in the first place. As a wise man once said, “Always keep two in the kitty.” It’s sound advice.

Why Jon Stewart is a Chicken Shit

Here’s something that’s always pissed me off about Jon Stewart — and why I consider him to be a chicken shit.  When he was host of “The Daily Show,” he’d frequently call out others’ actions, but if anyone tried calling him out, he’d hide behind the fact his show was a “comedy.”

To see him “in action” doing this, I’ve provided the following clip:

Essentially, the political-comedy genre allows a comedian to:

  • Use their celebrity as a platform to get public attention
  • Dip their toe in political waters by calling out actions of politicians/pundits, etc.
  • If ever they find themselves on the receiving end of criticism, cop out behind “it’s just a joke.”

If a comedian makes a statement, is it their real opinion or part of their “shtick”?  This provides them a certain amount of cover —  If a comment is well received, they can own it as their own belief.  If not, they can claim it merely a “comedic misfire.”

Politicians clearly aren’t afforded this same luxury.  Before Trump (B.T.), if a politician made an off-color remark or a joke that fell flat, it very likely could have cost them their political race, or possibly even their career.

The problem is, a comedian can “hit” a politician, but a politician can’t hit them back.  Why?  Because “it’s just a joke” when a comedian does it, but it’s considered “mean-spirited” if a politician responds in kind.  Comedians clearly have no problem with such hypocrisy, as Bill Maher frequently pulls this same kind of dodgy bullshit.

Comics are instigators who use a defense mechanism similar to “You wouldn’t hit a guy in glasses, would you?” when challenged.  This is what needs to happen to them when they try and pull that shit:

It’s interesting to note that when the shoe’s on the other foot, Stewart isn’t so good at taking a joke at his own expense.  Here’s a clip of Seth MacFarlane on Piers Morgan’s show talking about an experience he had after parodying Stewart on “Family Guy.”:

Hey Stewart, don’t dish it out if you can’t take it, pal.

Mitt Romney = Secretary of State?

There are a lot of rumors swirling around that President-elect Donald J. Trump will appoint Mitt Romney as his Secretary of State.  If you actually believe that, I guarantee you’ve been getting your news from mainstream media — which is your first mistake.

With all the media has gotten wrong in 2016, why the hell would you listen to what they have to say about anything?

Here’s the deal, folks — Do NOT listen to a word the media says.  In fact, don’t put much faith in anything coming out of President-elect Trump’s mouth right now, either.  Why?  The interim between Trump’s election and his official swearing-in is a very delicate time, politically speaking.  As much as we’d like to see him immediately go all gung-ho on his campaign promises, we must accept now is simply not the right time for that.

I’m reminded of Law 3 (“Conceal Your Intentions”) from Robert Greene’s “The 48 Laws of Power,” which clearly states:

“Keep people off-balance and in the dark by never revealing the purpose of your actions.  If they have no clue what you are up to, they cannot prepare a defense.  Guide them far enough down the wrong path, envelop them in enough smoke, and by the time they realize your intentions, it will be too late.” – Robert Greene

Now is not the time for transparency.  It’s time for President-elect Trump to throw others off the trail of what he actually intends to do.  When he says he won’t prosecute Crooked Hillary Clinton, I think he’s using a linguistic loophole known as “lying by omission.”  Just because he won’t prosecute her personally, doesn’t mean she won’t be prosecuted.

Just because Trump meets with Romney doesn’t mean he’ll become Secretary of State.  It’s just smoke and mirrors.  After what Romney’s said about him, I’d be SHOCKED if he was chosen.  Now I could be wrong, but I highly suspect the only reason Trump even agreed to meet with Romney was for appearance’ sake.  I know many of us associate Trump’s image with that of a lion, but we mustn’t forget he also has the memory of an elephant when it comes to not forgetting those who’ve crossed him.

For those still concerned Trump has “gone soft” or will betray us, think about it another way:

As kids, we were probably assholes for 11 1/2 months of the year, but those 2 weeks before Christmas we were suddenly on our “best behavior.”  Why?  Just in case Santa happened to be watching, we didn’t want to get fucked out of our presents.  Once the 25th had passed, and we got everything on our lists, we happily went back to being the same little assholes doing whatever we pleased.

Right now is, effectively, “two weeks before Christmas” for Trump.  He’ll be on his best behavior until he’s officially sworn-in, at which point I fully expect he’ll do an about face and “go hard,” as Trump is known to do.
