I'm NOT an Ubermech

This correlates with my idea that all SJWs are white supremacists.  They believe white males are so naturally superior, that unless continually berated they will become “superior.” This correlates with my idea that all SJWs are white supremacists.  They believe white males are so naturally superior, that unless continually berated they will become "superior."
This does beg an interesting question, since I don't believe white males to be inherently superior. What cultural factors are keeping other groups from banding their own social connections and capital and leveraging their own ways ahead?

I don't have a good answer, not one that actually passes my logic gates.

So on an emotional level let me say, no matter who you are:

You can succeed. It may be hard because of things that aren't your fault, it may be hard because of things that are your fault. There will be people above and below you trying to stop you overtly and by subverting your own belief in yourself.  You can still succeed.

I've seen it done against challenges that would humble nearly anyone likely to be reading this. You can succeed.

You aren't a victim of anything you don't let make you a victim, even if you are a survivor and carry scars and wounds and maimings. You can succeed. 

Don't listen to anyone selling you prepackaged insurmountable excuses to fail, don't give into bigotry hateful or patronizing. You can succeed.

If you truly find it necessary to give up and surrender to the forces trying to hold you down do it three minutes after you've taken your final breath, not one second before. You can succeed.

The cult of Social Justice can fuck off in a heterosexual missionary way because that's what will piss them off the most. You narcissistic nihilists aren't content with your own societal suicide, no everyone must be made to care...and drink the kool-aide. All because Mommy and Daddy never actually loved you enough to actually be your parents so nobody can be allowed to be content in their own lives. The floor is yours angry readers.

Scotch Nature: Warding Off the Demon Murphy

Anything that can possibly go wrong, does. Murphy's Law
If anything can go wrong fix it. Peter's Law for the Obsessive Compuslive

The whole point of these Scotch Nature posts is to enable Financial Preparation. But the only think nicer than having your cake is not having to eat it. So lets go over some quick tips and basic maintenance to prevent having to dip into that emergency fund that you've been skipping Starbucks and McDonald's to build.

When you buy expensive used things have a competent person check them out first. Fun factoid is that many automotive repair places will give a prospective used car a quick once over before you buy it for a very modest fee(sometimes just doing it for your future goodwill/business). So before you shake hands and sign a bill of sale a quick test drive past your local garage might save you from buying an obvious(to a professional) lemon. Similarly pull up KBB.com to make sure you're paying a fair price and look up some articles about what to look for during a test drive.

Get a really through home inspection on any house you purchase. Make sure you have a good idea on what those repairs would cost and factor that into any offers you make.

Regular and needed maintenance on capital items like home and vehicles is not something to cheap out on. Remember there's a difference between being cheap and being thrifty. One of those two ends up with being comfortable to well off later. That doesn't mean you don't shop around for the best prices you can get for quality work but don't put off things like transmission services or timing belts, because that will often end up with you having to look for a new care with only what the junk-yard will give you for your old one or a repair bill that will seem almost as bad.

On the Medical front one of the cheapest ways to avoid a doctor's visit and assorted costs is to get your flu shot and wash your hands regularly. You don't have to be a total germaphobe to reduce your out of pocket medical costs regularly. Alas the other thing most of us should do is even less fun and that's loose a few pounds of weight. Unfun but affording insulin is even worse.

This isn't to say that the demon Murphy won't manage to bite you anyway but when you'll have your financial preparations because you made him work for it.

The "go home to your family at any cost to anyone else" mentality can fuckoff with a noise so loud that it causes what would be considered second degree murder if done by any non-government employee. Do you fuck-wads have any idea just how many more crimes won't go reported now resulting in more crime and eventually vigilante revenge? Do you even care that when you shoot a dog that is dancing eight feet from you while wagging it's tail that your backstop is a house with kids in it? This is how you get people to fear not respect and fear doesn't lead to good places. FUCKING STOP this little girl horseshit or turn in your badge.

Also pain and fear can fuck off with a giant calloused fist up their assholes.

Scotch Nature: Better Late Than Never but Better Still ON TIME

Due to some semi-recent and awesome to hear feedback I'm going to try restarting my Scotch Nature series. Now the disclaimer these bits of advice are not for people who have their financial act even halfway together this is advice for people who are part of the 49% of Americans who would have to go into more debt to cover a $400 emergency expense. 

The average late fee for a Credit card in America is $34.09 the average late fee for rent is 3% to 5% late fees are the classic example of digging yourself in deeper, and do go using that "complementary overdraft check protection" because that runs between $30 and $50 a time.

So how do we avoid adding injury of late fees to the injury of bills or debt payments?

For starters we need to budget, I know some people reading this just froze like a deer in the headlights. But let me give you a couple of links to take the brain lock down a notch.

"Feed the Pig" by the AICPA has one.

So does Financial Peace University.

You CAN do this and you'll find that your money will go farther than you would think even as you start writing this down.

This is important because you need to get ahead of this curve so that bills are paid when they come in instead of "after I get paid". Because not only Murphy's Law happen to your money between then and now if you are living paycheck to paycheck, but there's also ample opportunity to misremember or just plain forget what is and isn't paid until next month's bill comes in with both balances AND a late fee.

On a side note if merely being forgetful or disorganized is causing you to pay late fees nearly everything nowadays can be auto drafted so sign up and start wondering why you have an extra $30 a month more than you used to when you'd lose just one bill a month behind the couch.

We all hate paying bills, but you know what sucks more PAYING EXTRA BILLS for no extra services beyond paying it later.

Paying bills in a timely manner can and will build a momentum of it's own just as failing to pay them in a timely manner does. One day you'll get the electric bill in and dash off the check without thinking about it. Because you are no longer insecure that it will clear if not sent at exactly the right time, and believe me that's a wonderful feeling to have.

Edit: BTW if you average just one $30 bounced check protection fee or late fee per month that's $360 over the course of a year. So in one year of being more careful with payments you could be most of the way to not being one of those people who would have to go into further debt if a $400 emergency came up.
