1. Good News

Item 1. The Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths still refers to its victims as "customers." What a laugh. The good news is their public relations manager, Nina Olsen, of the laughably named "Taxpayer Advocate Office" publicly admits the Institute does a poor job of "helping" its victims. Read the full joke here:

Item 2. Leftwing extremists have taken Trump Derangement Syndrome (that is what psychologists are calling it) to such an extreme that all but the most brainwashed of their followers are starting to question the leftist ideology. It's always good news when people begin to wake up and go into "brain on" mode. Now with the fake election coming up and nothing but nonsense coming from the Democratic Party candidates, disillusioned rank and file Democrats are seeking another way. It would be fantastic news if they found "voting in the affirmative for the rule of law" (voting Libertarian) to be the way they settle on.

Morpheus would be so proud to see so many people taking the red pill these days. Let's hope the trend gains momentum.

3. Brainpower tip

People obsess over political "news" and it's a complete brain polluter. Don't do it. You get bull crap on the left and horse hockey on the right, and there you are in the middle.

All of this spewing of nonsense, lies, propaganda, and other idiocy is merely a blue pill delivery system. I'm a red pill kind of guy, so I stay away from the blue pill pharmacies that masquerade as "news" sources. If you're not familiar with the blue pill / red pill terminology, watch this video clip: Or, you can use this little memory jogger: red pill = reality, blue pill = blissful ignorance.

Rather than allow low-integrity people to fill your mind with mental waste products, turn off those newsfeeds, newspapers, antisocial media news commentaries, newspapers, and similarly mislabeled sources of manipulative fiction. Use the time saved from that self-injuring activity to invest in actually learning facts and figures.

Sources include quality magazines, audio books, paper books, college courses (audited or credit), webinars, seminars, association magazines, trade shows, trade journals, professional journals, hobbyist newsletters, museums, monuments, facility tours, historic sites, organization events (e.g., local chapter dinners that feature a speaker), and even interning somewhere. As you can see, there are many sources of information you can use to build a big knowledge base. And that big knowledge base makes you smarter.

So are you going to build that big knowledge base, or waste the opportunity by instead using the time to fill your mind with mental waste products? Many people mistakenly believe the mental waste product choice is correct, because that enables them to "talk with people and know what's going on." But this is a non-sequitor because consumers of mental waste products don't know what's going on. They are merely spewing mental waste at each other, while in the mental waste blender. They end up knowing less than when they started!

Keep your mental diet clean. Staying away from the mudstream / lamestream / mental sewage pipeline is your first line of defense.

4. Finance tip

Remember the "jobless recovery" under ersatz POTUS Barry Soetoro (illegal alias, Barrack Hussein Obama)? Academics were wringing their hands trying to figure out why it was jobless. The reason is very simple. It wasn't a recovery. Soetoro's relentless attacks on the economy did horrendous damage.

This graphic shows the kind of "recovery" his policies brought us:

How is this information a finance tip for you? The same damaging policies are still being pushed by people who either don't understand basic math or who actually hate this country. Soeotoro took many actions to undermine the economy, and he succeeded in "fundamentally changing America" (obviously, not for the better). Somehow, he sold millions of Americans on the concept that you can raise the level of a water tank by opening its drain valve and punching holes in its sides. You need to be one of those Americans who helps others see reality. If the economy attackers don't enjoy wide public support, there will be less wrecking of the economy.

Now in this era of Trump Derangement Syndrome, lunatics are calling for his impeachment even though since he took office we have seen economic indicators go up, up, up. Yes, the debt is still increasing and that is a problem. But even with that, we have seen astounding growth in jobs and an actual recovery. The difference is Trump,  though bumbling with things like his "trade war" isn't actively seeking to undermine the economy. We suffered eight long years of a withering attack on our economy, and the numbers show that very clearly. Look at the graphic again.

5. Security tip

Arguably, the lamestream media (aka, "mainstream media") are the single biggest threat to your security today. But it's a pretty strong argument.

Think about how they pump out disinformation to protect and support the corrupt ruling class. They have turned fictional constructs such as "race" into huge social issues, fomenting hate and division among people who should be united.

Think about how the people who write their newspaper articles, television new reports, social media posts, etc., see everything through a far leftwing, statist lens and associate almost exclusively with similarly brainwashed delusionals. They toss around words like "diversity" but are intolerant of anyone whose views align with reality or in some other way conflict with their own.

Think about how they try to manipulate our language so they can manipulate us. Nonsense like the dozens of racial labels that tell us nothing about the labeled person's character, views, competence, or personality.

The more any rational person thinks about the lamestream media, the more disgusted said rational person becomes. And the more that person thinks about it, the more that person realizes how dangerous the lamestream media are.

The solution for each person is to eliminate the lamestream media from your life. But what about the larger society around us? We can all help there. Let other people know that they aren't becoming "informed" by subjecting their brains to the propaganda, they are being manipulated. Point out the contradictions and illogic, and ask them how filling your mind with such garbage can somehow be helpful.

6. Health tip/Fitness tips

Photo taken about one week before 40th High School Class Reunion.

Note that the information provided here will likely conflict with the "fad of the moment" and other unsustainable, unproductive ways of looking at health and fitness.

Article appears below.

See my climbing videos here:


Lose weight, be strong, burn fat, gain muscle

The typical back and biceps workout consists of some lat pulldowns and a couple different types of biceps curls.

Assuming 3 sets of 10 reps, that's:

30 reps of back 60 reps of biceps

I do 3 different kinds of lat pulldowns, plus I do pullups, chinups, and bentover rows for my back. I do only two sets of ten reps on the chinning bar, because I am still recovering from an elbow injury and don't want to push it. I do 4 sets of 12 reps for everything else.

Total rep count for back: 4x12 = 60, plus 20 = 80.

For biceps, I do four types of curls (1 mid-range, 2 full contraction, 1 full extension). The mid-range gets 4 sets, the others get 2 sets. That works out to the same 60 reps as the typical gym rat does, but the typical gym rat does them all in the same range of motion which means minimal tension through 25% to 30% of what the biceps are capable of while mine hits full tension 100%.

The typical ratio of back to biceps work is 1:2. Mine is 4:3. Why would I make that choice?

There's something to be said for the aesthetics of a back that is, proportionate to the rest of your body, wide, thick, and powerful. It gives you presence, even when people are in front of you. When I'm sending a V5 or V6 that requires powerful core tension and my shirt is off, female climbers aren't there to watch my feet.

But more importantly, a strong back gives you an athletic edge to perform at you peak. Just look at Michael Phelps, Usain Bolt, or any other world class athlete. You do see nice arms, but their backs are totally impressive.

Rather than neglect your back training (the typical approach), emphasize it. Back training is exhausting and difficult, which is one reason people typically avoid it. But do you want to be typical or do you want to be the one whom other people secretly (and sometimes not secretly) wish they were like?


At, you'll find plenty of informative, authoritative articles on maintaining a lean, strong physique. It has nothing to do with long workouts or impossible to maintain diets. In fact:
  • The best workouts are short and intense.
  • A good diet contains far more flavors and satisfaction than the typical American diet.

7. Factoid

Nancy "Nutcase" Pelosi so fears for the safety of rapists, muggers, serial killers, spree killers, and other violent criminals that she wants them to be armed while simultaneously demanding that law-abiding citizens be disarmed. Of course she doesn't want to disarm her personal security guards.

8. Thought for the Day

When people like Nancy "Nutcase" Pelosi are allowed to be in positions of power instead of being safely locked up for the psychiatric care they so desperately need, we are all in unnecessarily greater danger.
