So this last week our moderators at Warrior Talk banned a gaggle of "tin foilers".
For the sake of those who have not heard these terms because they have been busy working for a living and actually doing something important, here they are -
Tin foilers is a derisive term derived from the “tin foil hat” - a piece of headgear made from one or more sheets of aluminium foil or similar material said to shield the brain from government mind control and/or mind reading. The concept of wearing a tin foil hat for protection from such threats has become a popular term of derision for paranoids with persecutory delusions, and is associated with conspiracy theorists.
Tin foiler is also for those who fancy themselves as modern day Benjamin Martins (Mel Gibson’s character in Patriot) fighting the evil government. These guys spend their days reading about all the evils of the government, and hang out with other conspiracy types gossiping about uselessness. When they dream, they do not dream about bikini women on tropical beaches, they dream about last stands against those pesky "jack booted thugs" with their trusty SKS in their hands, yelling out "F-R-E-E-D-O-M" just before the geek at Foggy Bottom blasts them with a drone attack.
Those types are losers. There, I said it. Do you know why they are losers? I will tell you. They are all huge time wasters. Time is a gift from God and you can use it wisely or waste it. With them, how much time are they wasting on things they have zero control over and will never have any control over? And worse, not using that time to build wealth, spend time with their families, work, or even train their bodies. Instead they think it is their job to "save America from itself".
They are purveyors of fear and negativity. It amazes me how much a certain personality fails to thrive unless they view the world as being unfair and about to implode. Give them a nice steak and they will lecture you on cholesterol. Pour them a nice single malt and they will lecture you on the evils of alcoholism. Light up a nice cigar and you will be bombarded with tales of lung cancer. For them, I am sure even sex is a bad thing.
The only thing I care to do for those people is show them the door and some size ten encouragement. If you want a successful life and business, purge yourselves of these guys. Even if what they claim was true, what are you or they, going to do? Nothing.
You may as well complain about the rain. You can complain about the rain all you like, but it will not stop coming down. You can either move to a drier place, or put on a rain coat. Then again, I will bet you could make a very nice living selling rain coats and umbrellas.
