Pot Calls Kettle Black

[UPDATE Below]

A great scholar quoting some ancient words made the following observation and wrote them down for us today over 2,000 years ago:

It's written, “I'll turn conventional wisdom on its head, I'll expose so-called experts as crackpots.”  So where can you find someone truly wise, truly educated, truly intelligent in this day and age? Hasn't God exposed it all as pretentious nonsense?
As some of you that follow this blog know, this Report has had fun for the past year with the premier tub-thumping, pretentious, Opinionator, Pontificator or Big-Mouth Blowhard at the Times-Standard newspaper. In a couple of days it will be a month since he came here to try to defile the Joe Blow Report again. In the meantime we posted the teaser-test, the “Modern Day Vampire” on July 19, 2010, to see if he would do what he said. The trick, of course, is to confront these “suckers” without giving them any energy, light or life. You know the old saying, “play with fire, get burned.” Same thing with Energy Vampires, egoistic people that can't exist on their own power, you run the serious risk of getting infected yourself.

Well, wouldn't you just know it? These last two Sunday Times-Standard Editions of As It Stand's exposés revealed a couple of interesting facts about his gross hypocrisy and why he's still a fixture at the paper.

An opinionated person is defined as “one given to conjecture.” Note, “conjecture” is the opposite of “fact.” Fact is defined: “something that actually exists; reality; truth.” Conjecture on the other hand is defined as: 1) The formation of expression of an opinion or theory without sufficient evidence for proof. 2) An opinion or theory so formed or expressed; guess; speculation. 3) Obsolete: the interpretation of signs or omens. – Really not quite so “obsolete” as you might think it is.

For example, someone may dream an image or a reflection of you, believe that dream is a fact and justify that dream-judgment, act on it and call you a stupid idiot – that would be a lie. It is a lie because it is based on an unfounded opinion; it originated in that "someone's" mind. However, the anger you consequently feel is the truth, because that experience is a fact. You didn't dream it up in your head. Unfortunately, if you act on what you experienced and beat the hell out of that “someone” you may just become, for a fact, a stupid idiot.

When this guy's public accusations and ad hominem assaults went way 'beyond the pale,' (Unacceptable; outside agreed standards of decency) we brought this matter to the Times-Standard management. They politely told us that what he said or did on his blog, other blogs, bulletin boards and on other Internet domains had nothing to do with them. That's not always true with other mainstream newspaper and TV companies. We wondered at the time what they'd say if he'd actually used the pejorative “N” word, since he called us just about everything else. We did what we could and let the matter stand. The paper publishing Dave Stancliff's opinions says more about the newspaper than it could ever say about him. While Dave Stancliff is doing the writing, it is the newspaper that is doing the talking. That's what these observations are about.

He concludes his latest Sunday “standing,” declaring: “Stupid is as stupid does.” And what “Stupid” did was expose his true nature coming on this blog with his wanton litany of diatribe (a bitter, sharply abusive denunciation, attack, or criticism) and demagoguery (defined below). His public conduct, despite his monumental efforts to the contrary put forth in these last two newspaper columns, destroyed whatever credibility and integrity he had. This problem for the newspaper is somewhat modified or obfuscated because not everyone reads the Joe Blow Report and actually experiences his conduct. In his Sunday, July 25, 2010, where he and the newspaper are celebrating his two year anniversary, he explains why his conduct was and is ignored by the Managing Editor, Kimberly Wear.

Just a side-note, he says, “I've learned not to get upset at negative feedback [...].” He certainly can't prove that statement by what he said to and about us. By the way, this article is NOT "negative feedback." This is our observations on two Times-Standard newspaper articles and the public conduct of Dave Stancliff.

What motivated this observation, “The Pot Calls the Kettle Black,” was his latest “opinion” in the Sunday, August 1, 2010, Times-Standard, his brilliant masterpiece: As It Stands: 'I know I'm right' syndrome or being stupid and proud of it.

Dave Stancliff would serve his and his readers best interests if he was to read, apply and put into practice “The Four Agreements” by Miguel Ruiz. Those Four Agreements are: 1) Be Impeccable with your word. 2) Don't take anything personally. 3) Don't make assumptions. And 4) Always do your best.

When he does he will repudiate his very first statement: “Regardless of the way some of us act, no one is perfect.” Writing this declaratory statement violates all four agreements. If he wants to believe that unsubstantiated opinion is somehow truth or fact because he believes it is, that's his business. Here again, he's trying to tell everyone how to think solely based upon his ideas or more aptly, worthless judgmental opinions that he chooses to believe. Who gave him the right to tell anyone how to think or what to believe? The Times-Standard? God? Everything else he says is built upon that one monumental assumption. This is where he speaks only for himself.

The complete statement is “Regardless of the way some of us act, no one is perfect. That's where stupidity comes in. Because we know we're not perfect we often try to cover up our mistakes, or even the mistakes of others. That's stupid because everyone knows their time to screw up will come. It's as inevitable as taxes and death.” And that is why he is the “Pot” calling himself “Black.” He's stupid and he knows it. In his case, he hypocritically tries to cover up his mistakes, protect his flawed ego, by trying to blame those that don't agree with his dreams. [Emphasis added]

“Facts” are NOT the same as “Opinions.” Opinions are simply lies and conjecture, the opposite of facts and truth. Facts and truth are derived from experiencing reality. Lies, conjecture and worthless opinions come from the dreams and fantasies conjured in the mind. You would think, abstractly reading his Opinion in the newspaper, that he'd certainly know the difference. He says, “Facts enlighten us and result in clear thinking. Accepting facts is acknowledging the truth. To turn away from facts is stupid. But not everyone is interested in the truth.” Once again he equate his opinions as “truth.” Anyone that doesn't agree with “his” opinions rejects truth. According to him, anyone that doesn't accept his “facts” is guilty of unclear “thinking.” Therein lies the crux of the issue, disagree with one of these kinds of people and they immediately attack your inteligence and sanity. He certainly NEVER demonstrated any of the above understanding in what he wrote about us. Everything he expounds about us as “facts” are revealed only to be his worthless opinions, which he believes and acts upon as facts and excpects everyone to accept. When he acts upon his lies is when he reveals himself and is consequently judged accordingly. When it comes to “clear thinking” and “enlightenment,” the question goes begging. Unfortunately, if he wasn't such a blue-ribbon hypocrite, his column might just be worth reading – sometimes.

Of note, he concludes with the following: “Finally, we have institutional stupidity where we let lawmakers lead us into stupid wars that drain our economy. The cruel thing about all of this is the poor people who suffer through one stupid failure after another as our politicians continue to raise the bar in being stupid.”“Stupid wars” based on “LIES”? [Emphasis added]

And “we” wonder why? When the newspaper publishes LIES or “opinions” as fact and truth you got to seriously ask yourself who really is the “stupid” one, when the poor suffering people continue time after time to vote in these so-called “stupid politicians.” You don't suppose that it has anything to do with what and how the newspapers and other mainstream media produce their “facts,” do you? Besides, you got to ask yourself, why would Dave Stancliff and the Times-Standard newspaper want everyone to think that these politicians are, in fact “stupid” rather than plain old-fashioned malicious deviants promoting worthless opinions as facts and truth?

His ultimate hypocrisy is where he says, “People who are insecure or feel threatened can't move on when confronted with facts. Researchers have found these people are less likely to listen to dissenting opinions, and they are more easily controlled.” This is the ultimate stupidity when he equates “facts” with “opinions.” However, he really defines himself when he sums it all up here: “Combine that information with the fact that misinformed people often have the strongest opinions, and you have the ingredients for being stupid and proud of it.” "Misinformed people" are now classified as "stupid" people and "pround of it."

The conduct demonstrated within his historical statements posted on this blog alone, speak for themselves. It all started with our May 31, 2009, observation titled, "Trolls Versus the Thought Police” when we unearthed a cyber-bully and exposed ourselves to a whole lot of hate speech.

It was for this very purpose we left all of his comments available for anyone interested in the FACTS and the TRUTH. If subtle indoctrination and propaganda, being told how to think and what to believe, is acceptable with you, then you can accept some responsibility for this bold assertion: “Most Americans lack even a basic understanding of how our country works.” ... “[T]he political ignorance of the American voter is one of the best documented data in political science.”

Now we know why. “God exposed it all as pretentious nonsense.”

“A person, esp. an orator or political leader, who gains power and popularity by arousing the emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people. To treat or manipulate - obscure or distort with emotionalism, prejudice, etc.”

[UPDATE :: Friday, August 6, 2010]

Just like clockwork, guess who showed up this morning first thing? Some Chinese spammer and Dave Stancliff's pretty face. Did you note what he says in his comment below? Did you read his Sunday, August 1, 2010, As It Stands brilliant exposé and compare him to his comment? His unsolicited comment presented below demonstrates what the kind of people he wrote about in the newspaper are. This is some of what he said: 
People who are insecure or feel threatened can't move on when confronted with facts. Researchers have found these people are less likely to listen to dissenting opinions, and are more easily controlled.
Then he turns around, when given the opportunity, and acts exactly like them! Apparently, he's incapable of seeing his own hypocrisy when he accuses this writer's observations of being a "ridiculous rant." A classic example of what he says, "misinformed people" with "strong opinions" are "stupid and proud of it."  He totally justifies this Report's observations.

As bad as that is for someone publishing in the newspaper, he continually insults the reader with his unsubstantiated insinuations, lies and accusations. He expects you to agree with him and his worthless opinions and if you don't then you're proud, vain and stupid. In his mind that makes our observation, “Pot Calls Kettle Black,” without any example or demonstration, without any substantiating facts or even any of his opinionated conjecture, a “ridiculous rant.” That's what I call a vain act of pride. Unlike him and his pretentious conjecture we offer the reader the opportunity to consider the facts as experienced and decide for themselves. More importantly, just exactly like an Energetic Vampire Parasite, he expects me to give him what he wants – an invitation.

Why would anyone want to do that when he is already providing all this luscious “Opinionator” material. By the way, I do keep or comply with the Four Agreements. I am “impeccable with my word” and “always do my best.” If you can show me where I am not, please be my guest. Before you start throwing your opinions around, make sure you know what you're talking about. That means know what it means to "be impeccable with your word" and "always do your best." In other words, read the book, experience the agreements (a great help with your self-esteem and ability to accept what you are), then come talk. You just might  find out I really do posses a "sweet nature."

Dave has left a new comment on your post "Pot Calls Kettle Black":

So why would you have to leave the country (your words) for Brazil if people knew who you were Joe?
Just it because of your sweet nature?
Or, have you ticked-off too many people with ridiculous rants like you posted here?

  1. So why would you have to leave the country (your words) for Brazil if people knew who you were Joe?

    Just it because of your sweet nature?

    Or, have you ticked-off too many people with ridiculous rants like you posted here?

  2. I just asked you a simple straight forward question Joe;

    Why would you have to leave the country (your words) and go to Brazil if people found out who you were?

    Just curious: don't you have any way of finding out what your Asian vistor is saying? An App, or something like that?
    It might be a pearl of wisdom.
