The World According To Bob

Bob Allen is a philosopher and cyber libertarian. He advocates for the basic human rights of men. Bob has learned to cut through the political nonsense, the propaganda hate, the surface discourse, and talk about the underlying metamessage that the front is hiding. Bob tells it like it is and lets the chips fall where they may. If you like what you read be sure to bookmark this blog and share it with your friends.

You can't make wrong into right by doing wrong more effectively. It's time for real MEN to stand up and take back our families, our society, and our self respect. It is not a crime to be born a man. It is not a crime to act manly.

Pay to Shop -- Fools!

They are building a new BUY MART store in my town. Apparently BUY MART is one of those stores that charges a fee for the “privilege” of purchasing their overpriced crap. They are not alone, several other merchants charge user fees to set foot in their pathetic stores. Some others are Costco, Sam’s Club (a branch of Wal Mart), and Direct Buy. I don’t know what kind of pathetic suckers are willing to pay good money to purchase from these greedy vendors, but the whole program rubs Bob the wrong way.

Bob spent close to a decade as a buyer for a large business organization, and has also several years of professional experience doing the purchasing for small business organizations. Bob is accustomed to sellers seeking out my custom, and working hard to encourage me to buy their products. We don’t live in the former Soviet Union where big stores had mostly empty shelves. We live in a country where there are ten thousand sellers offering us merchandise every day. We live in a country where sellers have to compete with each other to get us to shop in their stores, or to buy on-line from them. I still have a pocket knife that was given to me by a seller some years ago, along with a dozen golf balls that had the company logo. The logo has warn off the knife and I lost the golf balls, but I remember the name of the seller who gave them to me. He didn’t ask me to pay $50 for the “privilege” of buying his products and services. I can even remember when gas stations gave away premiums such as free glassware with each fillup. Sellers should have to compete with each other by giving us customers some bonuses for our custom. Their products should be higher quality, more reliable, lower in price, etc., or we’ll go down the street to the next seller.

Over the past few decades far too many retail giants have started screwing the public, and pretending that they can get away with any abusive crap they like. (See HughesNet Sucks Yes, they can get away with it for a while, and the sheep will follow if there is lots of advertising.

Bob is very skeptical of any seller who wants Bob to pay to be allowed to shop at his store. Bob watched the “Direct Buy” ads on TV where some flake claims to have “saved” $30,000 on the kitchen cabinets for his home. If you listen to the details it sounds like he spent $40,000 on cabinets. Bob has built numerous custom homes and finds those figures ludicrous. Maybe, if you are building a multi-million dollar home, and want cabinets made of Endangered Species wood, then you might spend that much. But “saving” $30,000 by paying Direct Buy a thousand for a “membership” is a fools bargain. They claim these huge “savings” and demand that you get an appointment to meet with a high pressure salesman for the “privilege” of seeing their catalog order office. Bob has years of experience as a buyer, and has never paid for the privilege of buying. Any price offered today, to any customer, is available tomorrow to any other customer. If this lying scumbag wants you to pay good money for him to quote you a price, tell the greedy scum to pound sand. There are a thousand other merchants you can go to, and with a little work you can save more than their fictitious “bargain.”

So Buy Mart can open their doors, and charge any fools willing to pay to shop there, but Bob won’t be paying them. If they want Bob to buy their crap they need to be thinking about giving me a free dozen golf balls or some other bonus for darkening their door. But then, I’m a professional buyer, not the usual dupe who was characterized by P.T. Barnum a century ago when he observed, “A fool and his money are easily separated.”

Today it is mostly:
“A fool and her money are easily separated.”

That's who goes to these stores.

Check this out:

This angers me. LinuxChix is a pro-women's rights, pro-lesbian group that I wish very much would be destroyed. Females contribute very very little to Free/OpenSource software yet they have edged their feminist organisations into the linux world (Also see Debian women : http://lists.debain.org/debian-women )

Is there any way we could hurt them? Does anyone have relatives/friends in law enforcement investigative services? Could they be sic'd on these organizations and these women? (Since we won't do anything against them ourselves).

Your opinion?

I guess you Brits are either smarter than us, or luckier.

Somehow, about 20 years ago, someone came up with the idea of calling a store a "club." In these "clubs," you need a membership card just to get in the door. They started out as a sort of fringe benefit, paid for by certain employers, who made deals with the "clubs." At the time, they may have actually been a good deal. (or not, I don't know) But they quickly devolved into the current situation, where anyone can just buy a membership. Since I share Bob's disdain for the entire concept, I don't know how much that costs. But my impression is that they make about as much profit from selling memberships as they do from selling goods.

The few times I've been in that type of store, (all after they started selling the memberships) I was entirely unimpressed with their prices. But people dumb enough to pay for the privilege of spending money, probably aren't smart enough to compare prices.

Note to Mikee: I notice that it's on the Democratic Party blog -- women's hate men division. The evil bitch starts by libeling you with a classic feminazi insult "psycho" which feminazi use in a failed attempt to discredit someone they can't refute logically. It's typical feminazi hate speech, and published by the Democratic Party.

If I had a dime for every hate mongering feminazi who tried to get Google to shut down The Truth According to Bob, I could lay in a supply of very expensive wine. All is shows is that the feminazi hate machine is worried about real MEN objecting to their hate.

I discovered this page of yours only rather recently. What were their deranged methods? Or is the question indiscreet? Just for future reference.

Well they managed to kill my yahoo email account (mikeeusaa@yahoo.com) which was linked on my weblog profile. (I used it to recieve emails and talk to my friends/brothers in arms)

Yahoo has deleted my email addresses countless times; every time at the behest of a woman's rights activist.

More info on what they've tried so far.

Reporting me to yahoo (was successful).
Reporting me to the police:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=229x8069

9. He has been reported...however,

police told the people who reported him not to waste their time. Nothing they'll do unless/until he actually kills someone - or whatever.

They also reported him to Yahoo (his email was a yahoo acct). Yahoo says he's been "dealt with" but they won't say how.

Note to Mikee: Some years ago Bob was booted from AOL by the feminazis for disagreeing with them in a chat room. AOL was a paid service so they had to stop collecting my monthly fee. It turned out to be the easiest way to get out of AOL. However, since Yahoo is free, it doesn't cost them as much to boot people -- although their advertising rates are based on total subscribers and traffic.

I suggest that you register your own domain name. One friend has his own web server using an older computer. It doesn't take the latest high speed computer to host a small to medium trafic web site. Most people use commercial web host sites such as IXwebhosting.com which will host almost anything for less than $10 per month. You could register "mikeeUSA.com" for example unless someone had gotten it first. That would free you from feminazi attacks. The feminazi who run Yahoo can pound sand.

The problem with having one's own toplevel dns is that you have to reliquish your home address and if you lie you go to jail [federal law passed 2 years ago or so] (which means death for me because (I hope) I would resist to the death all attempts at kidnapping).

I don't want femis getting my addy by a simple whois: they would contact the local police if they got it (they allready have contacted their own police multiple times, and canadian federal police in the past (I was behind a tor server that time)).

I do have my own server using a dynamic dns at
https://cat2.dynu.ca
But that dns provider is being unfortunatly DDoSed right now (and has been for the last few weeks, I've talked with the admin via email)
https://cat2.optus.nu is my new alternative dyndns name.

I have been kicked off of dyndns in the past because of "illegal activities". When I asked what the "illegal activities" were the admin threatend to bring me up on harrasment charges if I asked again, so I did ask again.

I suspect the "illegal activities" was being opposed to women's rights.

Now the women's rights activists are looking for the town I live in (and posting what they believe to be my town) and telling me that I will soon have trouble with the law.

"
Despite your proud statement of "never had any trouble with the law", this, my naive friend, will change. Very quickly.

Your name is attached to this drivel. When you graduate, do you honestly believe this blog, your name being attached to MikeeUSA all over Google will not come back to haunt you? It will. Not to mention if you have a criminal conviction for inciting hate crime."

The feminazi and their SS Gestapo in blue suits are a danger to all men, Mikee. There is nothing they like better than to send a real MAN off to Auschwitz, Fulsome, Attica, or some other hellhole. Little things like law, Constitution, and justice are completely ignored by those hate mongering bigots.

Perhaps you need to strike first. Where does the evil bitch who started the Democrat blog piece live? Why hasn't she ended up face down in a shallow grave? What about her supporters? Where do they live?

One of them claims to be from canada, others seem to be from the USA due to their concern about the upcoming election. Other then that it's not known where they're from.

Trying to pin a murder/arson on a 10 year old boy and put him away for life.

"But the boy could be labeled a serious youth offender under Ohio law, which could lead to imprisonment for life."
