HEADLINES: GET BACK TO WORK, WHITE MONKEY.
MAINE, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - Huwiteboi finally did his job and got through with sending the first batches of berets and patches. He did express concern though since he was sick and coughed up blood last week.
It’s probably nothing. Move along. Move along.
Local Bangor man however has stated that he did take swab test and has tested negative for COVID-19. Gut. Gut.
Now it’s all up to you, Avver. VORWARTS.
EDITORIAL - Being Open or Being Fickle?
Irishkaiser - I had a conversation with a fellow regimental. It was about beliefs and how easily you should drop them in the face of evidence. Of course within context it was based on actual parameters and actual circumstances which led me to describe certain individuals as flip-floppers who are fickle - you know, the usual Irishkaiser dribble, but let us discuss this in terms of principle.
Being open is one of the most universally espoused virtues in human society. It makes a man look wise and considerate. And in practice, it allows one to weigh in their options before committing.
In contrast, a similar word that is used as an insult is called being fickle - people who frequently changes one’s loyalties, interests or affections. Usually on a whim. It makes people look untrustworthy, shallow and manipulative. In practice, it may get you out of sticky situations but people will usually remember your lack of credibility afterwards… Unless it would be socially or politically convenient for them to forget, that is.
Two halves of the same whole - a change in beliefs. But what separates the two? Certainly not just the frequency as an unlucky bastard, by pure coincidence, may just be initially wrong for half his life and decides to change to a more factual or accurate opinion once exposed to evidence.
No, being fickle has to do more with your level of commitment displayed whilst you were in your initial belief system and your level of commitment after. An open person sees and understands the probability or veracity in an opposing view but does not commit yet. When an open person does commit, they would not so easily abandon the principles they stuck their guns to.
Recent examples within three decades include, the Coronavirus is Nothingfags, the anti-Dreyfusards, the Rodney King & George Floyd Supporters, the initial supporters of ISIS(I still remember when they were supported by Western media), and much more in history from the Crucifixion of Christ, to some asshole caveman or some shit.
An open person is thinking or has thought through their position. While yes, slow to commitment at times may mean they lose out on initial opportunity depending on the situation, an open person wants to “get it right” as much as possible.
Examples of this include Dr.Li Wenliang, Admiral Yamamoto, Ian Smith(… rights by rights do falter, strength by strengths do fail… ), THE MULTIPLE TIMES WE MADE PREDICTIONS THAT WERE ACCURATE BUT TOO MANY TO COUNT.
If you’re doing 180s too much than what you would personally consider reasonable and within a short amount of time, then consider maybe you should think your position through some more at the very least and consider the ends.

Though the Trade Mission lasted an hour. It was quite good, with the addition of an extra Colonial. It was during this Trade Mission Irishkaiser realized he was talking shit about some guy who probably meant well. Like, damn what that nigga ever do to him.
He did point out that he only felt that the dude was disingenuous. It was later explained to Irishkaiser that guy was only doing it because a girl told him to. With which Irishkaiser both felt disgusted and bad for him. Like, shit - I don’t really know the guy and I’m giving him shit for it. Poor bugger.
Also first Trade Mission with bags on them. Proven to be quite useful, actually. It’s why we’re able to afford FIVE IRON ARMOR SETS, Bill.
