It's never a good time to walkabout. If I start detailing EXACTLY what I have observed at the DD for quite some time, I will be accused of being over sensitive and so on.

I'm FED UP with that! I'm FED UP with people insisting on keeping their heads shoved firmly up their descending colons.

I'm fed up with the incredibly high level of DUMB SH IT STUBBORNESS and GREED I see among too many diners.

There is NEVER an apology for the long **** list of gratuitous insults directed at me based, not on any silly demands for respect by me, but on the evidence I have provided PROVING several people WRONG, including you, about Carrying Capacity versus Caring Capacity.

CERTAIN PEOPLE ALWAYS get the kid gloves treatment. I have NEVER BEEN ONE OF THEM. IF I "CROSS THE LINE", an apology is DEMANDED OF ME or I am given some snarky moronic swipe by one of the ADMINS like EDDIE OR SURLY who think they are SO CUTE playing at clever SNIPING.

**** MONSTA! **** KARPATOCK! **** PALLOY! **** SNOWLEAPARD! **** EDDIE! **** GOLDEN OXEN and **** UB on his LIBERTARIAN HORSESHIT TOO!

I AM SICK OF THEIR NARROW MINDEDNESS, DUPLICITY AND STUPIDITY!

Everything is GOING SOUTH on this planet anyway so I guess they are just more WATER MOLECULES in the DESTRUCTIVE EVIL WAVE THEY ARE PART OF (that they fancy themselves apart from due to their feverish, wishful thinking, self glorifying imaginations and egocentric world view).

My health is starting to be affected by this. I DO NOT NEED the AGGRAVATION. Let em' USE SOMEBODY ELSE FOR A PUNCHING BAG!

And as I told Surly and JD, ALL my posts here are public property. If anybody wants my STUFF over there, they can get off their fat asses and copy it here and post it on my channel. I'm an old man. I'm a sick old man. I am TIRED of dealing with EMPATHY CHALLENGED HOMO SAPS. 

YOU want to live. Good for you. I DON'T. I'm just here to keep my wife clothed and fed. Going over to the DD to get my ass kicked WILL NOT extend my life. That may make MY DAY but it will SHAFT my wife. And even if you read everybody there the riot act (WHICH I KNOW WON'T DO) so they wouldn't mess with the salt water ****'s tender sensibilities, THAT wouldn't work for me either.

I expect people to READ what is written and BACK THE FORK OFF if I prove them wrong. If YOU have to be the referee to keep the insults and sniping off my back, THERE IS NO REASON FOR ME TO BE THERE. THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN THE FACTS. THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN QUESTIONING THEIR WORLD VIEW. LOCKING MY CHANNEL IS NOT THE SOLUTION.

THEY ARE LOOKING FOR AFFIRMATION OF THEIR EGOCENTRIC BALONEY AND GET HIGHLY DISTURBED WHEN SOMEONE CHALLENGES THEIR TENDER SENSIBILITIES AND REVEALS WHAT A BUNCH OF BRAIN DEAD NARCISSISTIC BIGOTS THEY ARE.

I am not popular with most diners, despite the view count (or MAYBE BECAUSE OF IT!) on my channel. That, I understand.

But senseless, repetitive arguments over the same tired egocentric plethora of allegedly "practical" (see apex predators 'R' us) solutions to daily living are a WASTE OF TIME, ESPECIALLY when the sniping and sarcastic potshots are born of empathy challenged worship of materialism.
 
So, I have to DO what I HAVE TO DO to survive in this HELL for as long as possible.

Go ahead, copy and post this post (without this sentence - they will play nice instead  ;)) on the DD so you can SEE how the DD CROWD OF SELF LOVING EGOMANIACS collectively proclaim "Good riddance to bad rubbish!" IN CODE. That CODE will be LIKE THIS: Gee, I just can't imagine what got into Agelbert... We have always been so respectful and gentlemanly in our dialog with him.  ;)  ;D
This will be followed by a veritable explosion of polite discourse between the miscreants to prove what "gentlemen" (and lady -Karpatok will, no doubt, join in) they are. 

They all are human and all have the option to be as stupid and egocentric as they wish. But I will no longer pretend that THEIR world view is not BASCIALLY EGOCENTRIC. RE, I have NEVER enjoyed the company of empathy challenged lovers of themselves. And I NEVER WILL.

May God have mercy on them and bring them to everlasting life. But I'm too tired, sick and beat to continue talking to egocentric walls.

Agelbert NOTE: Please observe how many Doomstead Diners were raised. Good old Doctor Spock helped an entire country go NARCISSIST. The results are EVIDENT.  >:(


How Parents Turn Their Children Into Narcissists


Creating narcissists: the parental behaviour that convinces children they are better than other people.

Parents turn their children into little narcissists by overvaluing them, a new study finds.


It is better to concentrate on being emotionally warm towards children — this leads to higher self-esteem, not narcissism.

Quote
Professor Brad Bushman, one of the study’s authors, said:
“Children believe it when their parents tell them that they are more special than others.

That may not be good for them or for society.”


The study is the first of its kind to follow children over time to examine how narcissists evolve.

The researchers followed 565 children in the Netherlands who were between 7 and 11 when the study started. This is the critical age when narcissists emerge.


The children were tested for typical personality traits of narcissists, like thinking you are better than other people. The children’s parents were also asked about their children. Professor Bushman explained that his research had changed his own parenting style:

“When I first started doing this research in the 1990s, I used to think my children should be treated like they were extra-special. I’m careful not to do that now. It is important to express warmth to your children because that may promote self-esteem, but overvaluing them may promote higher narcissism.”

Creating little narcissists

A previous study by the same researchers caught out parents who overvalued their children. They were asked if their children knew about “Queen Alberta” and “The Tale of Benson Bunny.” Although both were made up by the researchers, some parents claimed their children knew all about them.

Eddie Brummelman, who co-authored the study, said: “Overvaluing parents tended to claim that their child had knowledge of many different topics – even these nonexistent ones.”

Of course overvaluing children is not the only cause of narcissism, there are also genetic and other environmental factors. “Some children may be more likely than others to become narcissistic when their parents overvalue them.”

Mr Brummelman thinks the study suggests a practical way of helping parents:
“Parent training interventions can, for example, teach parents to express affection and appreciation toward children without telling children that they are superior to others or entitled to privileges.”

The study was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (Brummelman et al., 2015).

AG, for some reason the RSS Feed from Renewable Revolution isn't working in the Widget on the Diner.

You might want to look into it.

RE,
Don't worry about me or my forum views. My Lord/Boss/Friend will provide.

RE, if you have anything to say, you had better apologize to me first for claiming my "arguments don't hold water". Otherwise, I hope God teaches you to pray this prayer before you die. You have never learned the meaning of a life well lived as long as you celebrate having a large ego.

Quote
Proverbs 30:7-9

7 O God, I beg two favors from you;

let me have them before I die.

8 First, help me never to tell a lie.

Second, give me neither poverty nor riches!

Give me just enough to satisfy my needs.

9 For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, “Who is the Lord?”

And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name.

What happens when we get a raise? Say you got a 3% raise this year. For most people, this is what happens: your spending goes up by 3%, or more. We get more; we think we can keep more. The Bible says that there's a big problem with this. It makes us less dependent on God. But there's another problem. God doesn't give us more so that we can be a blessing to ourselves. God gives us more so we can use it for others. We're supposed to use it to help others, not just to help ourselves.

Then Jesus talks about how God will take care of us. We won't read it, but it's a good passage to bookmark for when you're feeling financially stressed. Basically, Jesus says that we don't have to be greedy, or worry about money, because God will look after us. He says in verse 30:
"These things dominate the thoughts of most people (a very true statement), but your Father already knows your needs. He will give you all you need from day to day if you make the Kingdom of God your primary concern."

We don't have to get stressed about money, about having enough, because God always looks after his kids. Jesus says, "So don't be afraid, little flock. For it gives your Father great happiness to give you the Kingdom" (Luke 12:32). It's almost like Jesus is saying, "What more do you need? "Then Jesus says the most amazing, disturbing thing. You'll probably do what I did. I looked at the footnotes, in the Greek, to see if there was something that said, "Just kidding, guys." I looked for the loophole. It seems like one of those hyperboles, an exaggeration, something that he couldn't possibly mean for us to take seriously. Jesus says in verse 33 says,
"Sell what you have and give to those in need."

He doesn't say sell all that we have. But he does say that we should get rid of some of our stuff so that we can help others. I think Jesus really means this. We have way too much stuff. We even curse it sometimes. We run out of space to store it all. We rent self-storage lockers to pack it all away. We pay monthly fees to store stuff away that we don't even use. When we clean our houses, we mutter about all the stuff we have to move to dust - stuff we don't even like. We have so many clothes that there are some things we haven't worn in ages, and not because it doesn't fit. Jesus says, get rid of it. Take that second or third computer and give it to someone who could use it. Donate it to a computer lab. Get rid of your stuff, and give it to someone who could use it. Cash in some of your investments and give it to somebody who's struggling financially.

It's hard to know who benefits most when we do this. Jesus mentioned that we'll be helping those in need if we do this. But you get the impression that he was more focused on what it would do for us. It makes us less encumbered by all our possessions, less attached to physical stuff. Jesus said in verses 33-34:

This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven have no holes in them. Your treasure will be safe-no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it. Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be.


Following his instructions may help the poor. It may give some needed resources to charities and people who really need it. But it also does something for us. It frees us from the encumbrances of possessions. It makes us more dependent on God. Here's the point. Treasures aren't just to be stored up for our own pleasure.

Whenever God gives us more than we need to get by - and that's almost all of us - we need to realize that we're facing a danger. The danger is that we'll get greedy and want more without even knowing it, and we'll end up enslaved to the stuff rather than using it to benefit others. The goal, I think, isn't for us to feel guilty, or to skip going out for lunch today.

The goal, though, is to aim for a modest lifestyle that benefits others. The goal is to live in such a way that it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to lose everything we own, because what really matters can never be taken away.

Here's what I didn't know. I didn't know that I have enough. I'm rich. Almost all of us are. We live in luxury, compared to history, compared to most of the world. We all make way more than we really deserve. We may not think so, because we compare it to others we know, or what's on TV. Even the poorest of us has resources that many could only dream of. What we have is more than enough. 98% of us have more than we need just to get by. I didn't know that there's a danger in having more than enough. This is the goal of pretty well everyone in North America: to have more than we need to get by. I didn't know that there's such a danger in having so much.

The greatest indication of that is that we don't know how much we have. Despite our riches, most of us feel financially strapped. We're making more money that ever before, but we don't know it. Remember the definition of greed? It's wanting more of what I already have enough of. I didn't know that I'm probably living a life of greed, without even being aware. I also didn't know that the excess was given for me to share. I didn't know, but I do now.
