Loyalty and Honor; the promised blog.


Loyalty and Honor
Two subjects I have been meaning to blog on. It’s amazing just how many people (especially those in “high” places) are ignorant of these two things.
Loyalty, a Definition:

  • loy⋅al⋅ty [loi-uhl-tee]
  • –noun, plural –ties.

  1. the state or quality of being loyal; faithfulness to commitments or obligations.
  2. faithful adherence to a sovereign, government, leader, cause, etc.
  3. an example or instance of faithfulness, adherence, or the like: a man with fierce loyalties.

Loyalty and ethics
The concept of loyalty is an important part of ethics. Plato originally said that only a man who is just can be loyal, and that loyalty is a condition of genuine philosophy. The philosopher Josiah Royce said it was the supreme moral good, and that one’s devotion to an object mattered more than the merits of the object itself. Loyalty is a quality you look for in a friend.

Some thoughts from ME on loyalty: Loyalty is important! Many leaders just don’t understand you can’t drive people–leaders LEAD. They’re so shallow and self-centered that they can’t understand the concept AT ALL! >:-(

Loyalty works out like this: If you’re loyal to your people, they’ll be loyal to you! In fact, they will go to the ends of the earth for you. If you aren’t loyal to them, if you think they’re there to serve you (like you own them), well… they can make your life a misery. They can cost you money. They can ruin you. Loyalty is a two-way street. And last: Loyalty is EARNED, it is NOT given freely!!!


Let’s define “honor” first:

Honour or Honor, (from the Latin word honos, honoris) is the evaluation of a person’s trustworthiness and social status based on that individual’s espousals and actions. Honor is deemed exactly what determines a person’s character: whether or not the person reflects honesty, respect, integrity, or fairness.

Accordingly, individuals are assigned worth and stature based on the harmony of their actions, code of honour, and that of the society at large. Honor can be analyzed as a relativistic concept, i.e., conflicts between individuals and even cultures arising as a consequence of material circumstance and ambition, rather than fundamental differences in principle.

So, what are we talking about here Marsh?
Well, I think it’s about one’s honor as a human, one’s honor as a man. Way too often these days, both in business AND in life, it is totally forgotten or ignored. Here’s some thoughts on honor:

  • An honorable man does not lie.
  • An honorable man does not cheat.
  • An honorable man does not go back on his word once given.
  • An honorable man does not harm or attack those weaker than himself (women, children, the elderly, etc.)

If you lie, especially out of habit, you are NOT an honorable person. Bald-face lies are just that. Need I go on? It’s people like this who are dooming our nation and society and they should be excised!

A Final Thought
Don’t like what I say here? Have I offended you because you perchance DO these kinds of things? Well then: FUCK OFF! Don’t come here! You’re not welcome on my blog nor on my websites. I cannot stand back-stabbing snake fuckers, liars, cheats nor those without honor.

I have been musing on this theme for a long while and finally got it written… I doubt it will help things any, but who knows… if it saves one soul it’ll be worth it.

The art sez it all!


My thoughts on a disturbing trend amongst young pick-em-up-truck owners. (We used to call ’em “Goat Ropers” back home)… You surely ain’t gonna find a truck driver doing this stuff… and ya know, I just love that black smoke coming out of the stacks… can we say B_U_R_N_I_N_G___M_O_N_E_Y ???

New Cars… why no one’s buying


Well really, it’s the economy stupid. Partly anyway. Part of it is that what new cars cost is frigging ridiculous! Crazy. I am sorry, but I am NOT paying $20-30K for a car… absolute lunacy. And what do you get? Something better? No, not really. Most American cars are still kinda crappy and not that well built.

I saw the President on TV trying to encourage people to buy new American cars… ain’t gonna work. When it costs $500. plus a month just in car PAYMENTS, that’s too much. Waaay too much! For what? Something that get’s dog shit fuel mileage… something that the tranny craps out in w/ in a couple years and then costs $3500. ?!? to repair. Do YOU have $3500. lying around? I don’t. No, these idiots expect you to put it on your credit card and many do. No wonder our country is in the throes of reverting to a third world nation. “Oh, we gots ta give everyone EQUAL ability yo borrow money.” What CRAP! This is why there’s a huge housing crash… giving poor folks loans for houses that cost crazy money. “Oh, yes, $300,000 for this 2 bedroom house is a bargain.” In WHAT friggin’ reality? In my hometown, Atascadero, CA, for awhile, the median home price was over $600 THOUSAND dollars. Guess it ain’t now.

We need a REAL President… like T.R. not Barry O.

Hey, what do I know, I’m just a stupid, dumb-ass truck driver. I’m no great minister of finance. However, I am also not in credit card debt of over $50k like a lot of folks my age. Wanna know an empire-shattering secret? What are they gonna do to you if you blow it all off? Put you in debtor’s prison and make your kids work in a shoe factory? Uh, NO, this isn’t 19th century England there Tiny Tim… The problem there is when you don’t have credit anymore, you’ll have to actually PAY for shit and you won’t be able to. Kinda like goin’ from doing a lot of coke to not doing ANY… can we say heavy-ass withdrawal :-O Better than at Citi Bank where they’re sendingout a crack team of ninja assasins to kill me for revealing this secret. Just think if everyone did that… crash comes the house of cards (and that’s ALL it is!)… It’s all an illusion… ack! scream! teeth gnashing… gotta solution? I dunno… I’m not the President or a member of OUR corrupt and incompetant board of directors (called “Congress” by the mainstream media)… Good luck on that idiots.

I think corrupt politicians should be publicly stoned to death… it’d sure make them less likely to do this kinda crap. Idiots like Randy “Duke” Cunningham, a once-honorable man, would pay for their crimes for real, instead of sitting in a cell. And he thought “W” would pardon his corrupt, bribe-takin’ ass… (yes, I met him, he was a dick!).
I’ll stop now… Ende

Comments Off on Manners



Why is it people don’t have ANY manners anymore? I know some will blame the Internet–I don’t. It’s more than that. Yes, the ability to insult someone without them punching you in the nose is part of it, but I think it’s more MTV and Nintendo to blame. “What? That fat bastard’s high” you’re thinking… au contraire, mi Amigos MTV teaches kids/people that their actions don’t really have consequences and Nintendo (PlayStation/X-Box/Wii/etc.) teaches them that violence is okay. “Hmmmmmm…. he’s full of crap…” say you.

But think about it, people on the highway have this mentality of “Screw them, I’ll speed up and not let him in…” or “I’ll cut him off.” You know I’m right too… I drive for a living and I see it every day. Rude assholes who think they and their jalopy are immune to damage!?

Strange Utterances Indeed!
The “F-Bomb” is in common usage, even by little old granny ladies and anything less, well it’s okay… I remember when MY Grandma would have ripped off an earlobe for uttering such words. Now no one cares.

Perhaps it’s the end of our civilization, I don’t know. I DO know that when people had guns on their persons, there was a lot more politeness in evidence :-O Ooooohhhh guns, how icky… I’ll stop there.

What do YOU think about this?
