18 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted

Originally posted on Introversion Effect:

Like many categorizing systems, the separatist thinking behind them attempts to firmly place us in one container or another.  The flaw in these types of systems is that they don’t always take into account the middle areas of the spectrum.  And any systems is just that: a spectrum.  I’ve long stated with unequivocal certainty that I’m introverted.  My friends, however, look at me askance, because I’m actually very fun-loving and outgoing when I need to be.  So on that introvert/extravert spectrum, I fall somewhere to the introverted side, but exhibit limited extroverted tendencies.  Here is an article found online that I have updated to reflect this spectrumized system.

1. You’re not anti-social, you’re selectively social.

2. At any given point, you have one (maybe two) best friends who are your entire life. You’re not a “group of friends” person. You can’t keep up with all that.

3. Social gatherings…

Who is Trevor Loudon and Why Does He Insist the Tea Party Must Take over the Republican Party?

All of us struggle to make sense out of what we see around us, and we’re frustrated because we can’t.  For example, what sense does it make for an unknown Illinois senator who has accomplished nothing on a scale larger than a neighborhood get elected President of the United States?  Why do labor unions continually support democrats when Obamacare is wrecking their members’ benefits, and the immigration bill, if passed, will do nothing but lower wages?  Why does the Attorney General of the United States think he can stonewall congress, be charged with contempt, and continue to stonewall?  Why does any congress vote for any bill that will affect 20% of the economy of this country without reading it or knowing its cost?  Why does Obama support the elimination of gun ownership when he knows banning guns will not reduce gun crime?  Why do most blacks support the Democratic Party and agenda when it is obvious it has locked them into poverty?  And the list goes on.  You know it already.

Recently I met a researcher from New Zealand, Trevor Loudon, who offers an explanation.  In short, it is that communism is behind all of the things that don’t make sense.

My initial response to this was that Russia is no longer a power to be reckoned with, and its economy is dominated by gangsters.  I also pointed out that communist political activity in this country is virtually non-existent.  Louden’s response is that one of the great achievements of modern communism is convincing its victims that it doesn’t exist, and it only takes a few highly trained personnel to take over an entire country, even one as large as ours.

You may not have even heard of the Yazidis, a religious minority primarily Kurdish in ethnicity. Since they are not fundamentalist Islamists, ISIS has targeted them for extermination. Currently tens of thousands of Yazidis are under siege in the mountains of Iraq where they are suffering from a lack of food and water.

Meanwhile much of the world is diminishing the real meaning of “genocide” by using the word to describe Israel’s efforts to root out Hamas terrorists in Gaza.

‘Lone Survivor’ Marcus Luttrell’s Facebook thread mocks Ventura [pics]

Veteran Navy SEAL and author of “Lone Survivor” posted a simple meme shaming Jesse Ventura to his Facebook page. It started a flood of memes from Luttrell’s fans, some of whom are presumably former or current military but all of whom feel that Ventura’s lawsuit against the widow of SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was the height of dishonor.

Caution: Some of the language is pretty salty.

Portland,OR: Palestine Supporters Harass, Berate Israel Supporters

From Laughing at Liberals

Published on Jul 27, 2014

“Full Circle. Kristalnacht In Palestine” reads one sign from the Palestinian supporters, as a small group of Israel supporters show up to protest an anti Israel rally across the street. The Palestine supporters quickly surround the Israel supporters, blocking their flags, arguing with them, screaming at that them, even blasting the megaphone right into their faces. All the while telling them to move to a different spot. The pro Israel clan moves down a bit, but the anti Israel bunch once again moves to block their flags. One guy accuses the Israel supporters of wanting to hang babies with a flag. Another claims that the “Human shield is the only excuse I hear from your people”. Still another gal mocks them by saying “If you’re scared, then pray! God will take care of you!”. As the rally winds down, a lady guides the pack away while shouting “FUCK AMERICA AND FUCK ISRAEL TOO!”

‘Be proud of being a huntress': Must-read tweets hammer anti-hunting leftists and their #WarOnWomen

For two weeks, anti-hunting screechers savaged 19-year-old big game hunter Kendall Jones with death wishes, threats and their weapon of choice — misogyny. When the media discovered that 17-year-old World Cup fan Axelle Despiegelaere had posted a hunting photo on Facebook, all hell broke loose. L’Oréal was quick to distance itself from the newly discovered model, announcing that her “one-time contract” was completed.

Earlier this month, PGA Tour golfer and Kendall Jones supporter John Peterson suggested, “If it was a 60 year old overweight dude posing with his African kills, no one would talk.” He’s not 60 or pudgy, but his hunting photo certainly didn’t spawn weeks of national headlines. The anti-hunting, gun-grabbing Left sure loves to target young women, huh?

Bloggers, Surveillance and Obama’s Orwellian State

Jay Carney is free. But not loose – at least so far. After resigning as the press secretary for President Obama on June 20, Carney gave insight into the Obama administration’s handling of classified documents, and responded to criticism that this administration has been the most Orwellian in recent history.

“I know — because I covered them — that this was said of Clinton and Bush, and it will probably be said of the next White House,” said Carney in a recent New York Times Magazine interview. “I think a little perspective is useful…It is a serious, serious matter to leak classified information. Some of the debate around this kind of forgets how serious that is.”

But, it could also be the changing nature of the relationship between the media and the White House. At a recent event at the New America Foundation, journalists and historians challenged Carney, arguing that…

You could say it’s not the number of protesters but the quality — none of these anti-Hobby Lobby groups has a chance of making the same splash that Holly Fisher did with her one-woman pro-life, pro-Hobby Lobby pic.

Still, protesters have turned up in front of Hobby Lobby stores across the country to make their case against the Supreme Court’s ruling.
