Change… what’s in your wallet?

Who says you can’t change? If you are a discredited politician, or stained American icon, there is still hope for you. Now times have changed. Research is clear.

Trump is the new penicillin. Well, no matter what you are ailing from, no matter how bad your reputation is, Trump is the cure. Just attack Trump and you can get praise gushing from from everywhere almost instantly.

That’s right players, the Trump Card is the new exemption card. Using it whisks away any past behavior hanging over your head like a dark cloud. It is a cult-market. Look what it did for Alec Baldwin. He won an Emmy mocking Trump, as a “conduit” for Trump pain.

Right now, even traitor Bowe Bergdahl is using it. They are trying to use it on Harvey Weinstein — if anything can save his reputation. Media started using it, too, as soon as Harvey’s scandal broke. And Jane Fonda used her Trump Card a couple times.

First, in September she said “Kudos, Bravos & Love to those brave athletes speaking truth to power.” Really? A big shout out to American dissent.

Then Fonda commented on Weinstein saying she just “found out about Harvey about a year ago. I’m ashamed that I didn’t say anything right then.” Oops. She had to know, it was common knowledge. This is a woman who found her way into North Vietnam in war time. Just found out last year? But maybe there is help.

In the same interview, she whipped out the Trump Card saying:

CNN [Trump’s election] “counteracts a lot of the good that we’re doing, because a lot of men say, ‘Well, our president does it, and he got elected even after people discovered that he was an abuser, so I’m just going to go ahead and do what I want to do.’ “

Last week, Jane pulled out her Trump Card again to cover her American shame.
Now she tells the BBC:

(Question) “Are you proud of America today?”
The actress was very quick to reply with a hard “no.”

“But, I’m proud of the resistance. I’m proud of the people who are turning out in unprecedented numbers and continue over and over and over again to protest what Trump is doing. I’m very proud of them, that core.”

No, she isn’t proud of America but even that can get swilled up in that Trump Card. (or should we call it the anti-Trump card?) I can see the ad now: ‘If it works for Jane Fonda, imagine what it can do for you?’ She’s proud of resistance or dissent though.

So it doesn’t only work once, you can just keep right on using it with the same results.

Hillary has had mixed results using her card because there is so much to cover. Still, it’s been effective in mitigating her damage. But she needs the super-plutonium version.

Bob Corker threw down his Trump Card, despite election problems, and no one mentioned his inside trading scandals or the investigation. The media turned him into a saint.

Mitt Romney used his a few times with positive effects. The left even ignored its phobia of his wealth. All that melted away. Plus, having a RINO card backs him up in emergencies.

McConnell tried using his but it got temporarily rejected. So there’s one outlier.

Maxine Waters uses her Trump Card constantly. Any of her hypocrisy is ignored. She’s Auntie Maxine, most quotable for “Impeach 45.” Florida Rep Wilson is also having lots of luck playing her Trump Card constantly. She now says she’s a rock star.

Look at George Bush. He was the most despised man for 16 years. Do I have to remind you how the left and media hated him? We were coerced into defending that Republican sore. He gave an anti-Trump speech this week and voila. His card worked like a charm.

Now media and people like liberal’s historian, Douglas Brinkley, say Bush’s speech will live in infamy, as a call to arms against Trumpism. (All the isms Bush used he didn’t mention that one.) Brinkley called it a warning on nationalism. His popularity on the left sored. They are praising Bush for bravery and courage. He didn’t vote for Trump and his father endorsed Hillary. This proves the left is gullible enough, the potential is enormous.

McCain took some heat for not voting for the repeal and replace. But he was praised by liberals for being an obstructionist. Now he attacks Trump again, and again they praise him. Playing political games is despised and yet McCain is celebrated. He also has had a gold RINO Card just for everyday use. Media widely accepts the RINO card, too.

There are still tests underway on the Trump Card but, as you can see, already there are exciting results. No one knows yet how far it can go, or any application limits? But so far it has rivaled its cousin, the Race Card. It already seems just as versatile except without all the extra baggage.

And like any new invention, people are finding that it is hard to imagine life without it.

Sort of reminds me of Rod Blagojevich: “I’ve got this thing and it’s f****ing golden, and, uh, uh, I’m just not giving it up for f***in’ nothing.” Gee, I wonder if the Trump Card can do anything for him? Or maybe OJ can try it?

DACA Caca

I just can’t stand this DACA debate caca anymore. It’s time for a good old flush.
As if there is any debate, but the caca keeps getting deeper.

I noticed the left calls us Americans deplorables yet cries their hearts out for “undocumented” illegal immigrants. Dems, I see what you did there.

A couple facts:

#1)The reason they are here in the first place is because the border is broken.

Not because “the immigration system is broken.” The Dems busted “the system.”

#2)The only reason the problem exists is because the Democrats refused to secure the border 30 years ago on Reagan. Liars that they are. Happy anniversary!

Now even Iggy knows that if he leaves the barn doors open at night he’ll have an empty barn in the morning. It’s not about having a fetish for barn doors.

Dems removed the door from its hinges… busted it real good. But then they don’t believe in borders or security anyway. “Everybody in the pool.”

Something like what would happen to my farm if I had no fences, boundaries or enforcement. I’d have no crops either and could kiss the farm bye-byes. So we bought the farm and Dems gave it away, as much as they could. Never mind their reasons.

Obama illegally created the DACA caca for illegals. And one for parents that got derailed.

Now they demand we keep DACA legal but can’t have border security. Sound familiar yet? They’ll promise some border security, if we guarantee amnesty to these undocumented. So they can back out and screw America. Then they’ll want broader amnesty for the other 11+ million more, using their activist courts.

Now whenever I have a defiant bull I find a way to control it before it can do any damage. I don’t grant it amnesty. But Iggy still has doors on his barn too, for a good reason.

They want amnesty for DACA so they can screw USA again. What part of screw America don’t we get? Anytime anyone tries to talk me into forfeiting my barn doors and fences I get a little suspicious. So goes the pussheads on the left.

Now where is that branding iron?

Deplorable Hillary waste: oooh that smell

Hi, Iggy Bliss here. It’s been a while but I’m back after composing my thoughts from the election. (winning can do that to you)

But after Hillary came out with her new book, I just couldn’t re-restrain myself. The queen of “what difference at this point does it make?” has not lost her edge. Now she says “it’s happening!”

Well, I’ve been around the barnyard here for a long time, with all the animals, but I never smelled a nasty pile like that before. Ol’ Iggy knows the difference between hog waste and horse manure. And I think she invented a whole new waste category.

Most of us deplorables, and even barnyard animals, are more tuned into reality than that has been IS. She’s flat out delusional

Here is what she said on Twitter:

So Hillary, you will be “fighting” with everything you have against the rule of law, Constitution, and the American people. Thank goodness you lost, you harlot

Then she does an interview with Anderson Cooper and, asked about going to the inauguration, Hillary said, “I am inflicted with the responsibility gene.”

Call me tared and feathered. She has the responsibility gene? The bitch busts out her new book like she’s breaking out a bottle of Dom Pérignon(’59). Sorry, Hillary, the lies weren’t that good the first time around. But she breaks it out the day after 911. That date is not a surprise or floating date every year.

Yet you picked that day. As they say, “if it happens” in politics “you can bet it was planned that way.” Vintage Dom Pérignon it isn’t. My cousin Carl makes better stuff than that out behind his shed. Maybe you should have had a swig of that stuff before writing a book.

On Russia and Trump, she sees communications, meetings and phone calls and maybe financial intermingling to validate collusion. She says it is bigger than Watergate. Remember she tipped us off in the 90’s about the vast right-wing conspiracy after her husband for years. I got your tip right here, Hillary. All 4 of ’em.

She believes Russia had a “highly sophisticated influence operation” that cost her votes. Thus, she lost the election. But back up! So in her world, Hillary was so good it took Moscow to take her down. Well, with the help of the other culprit, Comey, who she credits with costing her the election. Hey, does that mean Moscow, Putin and Comey colluded?

She’s also more interested in “cleaning her closets” than worrying about her corruption catching up to her — like jail time. Hillary talks about closets? Please remind Hillary that there aren’t any closets in Leavenworth. But so nice for her to leave Bubba clean closets for his new floozy. (she won’t be wearing jumpsuits) She will be breaking into your stash of Dom Pérignon on special occasions, like your sentencing anniversaries.

Hillary says she is deeply committed, to being involved in politics, so Democrats don’t lose ground. Good, she has a lot of experience at losing to share with them.

I think the sun has been beatin’ on that deplorable loser’s pile for too long. If Sarah Palin wrote that book, Hillary Clinton would be the first person out screaming “Bullshit!”

Iggy’s got some stalls to muck out…..Hillary should have done that before her book.

I’ll be back when politics get too squeamish for prime time pussheads.

Our Country Rewritten

I took the liberty to rewrite the sentiments the way Leftists see things in our country.

Rewritten: the way it was, according to today’s Left:

Four score and seven years ago, our forefathers brought forth to this continent a new racist nation, dedicated to the proposition that all men are created unequal….

That it is government’s duty to make and keep them unequal; that equality of people was never really intended to exist in the US, or be guaranteed by its Government.

Therefore, it is now government’s foremost duty to pay for that. Though this ideal may never be accomplished, it must always strive to admit its racist founding and structuring. But that is not enough.

So groups and minorities can and must hold fast to perpetual grievances against government and others, and dutifully pass them on to the next generation.

That the grievance industry of non-whites be forever granted wide reprieve for any offenses committed against whites on account of this original, ongoing sin of structural racism.

That this white racist nation never be able to shed its blame or guilt for social injustice, inequality, bigotry, systemic and institutional racism, and its offenses to humanity.

That AmeriKa shall never be healed from, or forgiven for, its systemic racist past.
(*I’ll call that the Getty Redress)

Hence. we are the United Racist States of America, or so says the left.
 
Exhibit A: when the Marxists and leftists see the pictures of that march in Charllotesville, they see AmeriKa as the KKK clan. That is how they really see America, like a clan state.

That picture is just a metaphor for their distorted view of the whole country.

But in reality, what normal non-radicalized Americans see are angry, hate-filled leftists: streaming down the streets, stopping traffic, shouting slurs at cops, lighting police cars on fire, burning down buildings, breaking windows, rioting, in black hooded attire assaulting people, shouting down every speaker they don’t agree with, destroying statues, shutting down businesses, looting stores, shutting down bridges and highways, protesting or threatening businesses that don’t align with their political agenda; while calling opponents any names and _phobes they want, who can’t be reasoned with or confronted, and who’s actions are justifiable by government’s structural or other people’s systemic racism.

So the radical left’s metaphor is really only a graphic diversion from the correct picture of reality Americans see unfolding in front of them. Reality does not fit with the left..

Triggering Statues

It seems like those triggering statues are everywhere, to the left. They are so offensive they need to be removed from the offended eye, barred from public, or destroyed.(who said art needed to be perfect?)

So I think I have a solution. It’s very simple. People should think of statues like tweets. Offensive ones may be out there but you can either ignore them or just accept them.

People retweet for different reasons. Sometimes maybe they want others to see it. You don’t agree with everything.You can retweet an offensive comment because you think it deserves to be seen by others.

People can’t ban every offensive tweet. Sometimes you want others to see some offending thing or they make their comment on the retweet.

Not every tweet or twitter person is 100% pure. You wouldn’t want people on twitter to only be able to say certain agreeable things. Only certain authors should be able to tweet. But if you don’t like or appreciate it, you don’t put a like on it or don’t retweet it.

Now the opposite is quickly becoming the case. Some people want to do to twitter and tweets what they are doing to statues: remove or ban the offending ones, as if it is actively offending you because it is there. Therefore, it does not deserve to be on the media or internet and must be banned, possibly along with the author.

Is that what they want to do to the internet? That’s what they are doing to public spaces. What type of statues then can we have? What shall be allowed? Who will decide it, who will enforce it?

Outrage move on over.

Colin Kaepernick can take a knee or sit out the national anthem but a coach is fired and told by a judge that he cannot take a knee to pray on the 50 yard line. So he deserved to be fired. Now, Kaepernick is having a hard time getting employed as people demand he be given a spot, no matter how good a player he is. He needs affirmative action to be hired. His protest deserves a spot. A coach taking a knee deserves to be banished from coaching. But the left doesn’t see this as crazy.

You can be radical enough to stand down on the national anthem and get celebrated for it. Yet you should be rejected for taking a knee on the 50. Where is the rule book for conduct? Where’s the tolerance?

But if you are going to ban statues then you must ban Twitter. It’s too triggering for the public. On the other hand, if you can accept Twitter, then think of statues like Tweets.

Hillary Books

Rumors say Hillary is already hard at work on a followup book to her excuse exposé coming out, “What [Didn’t] Happen.”

This one will be a shorter, simpler book titled “Lose the Election: All Your Investigations Go Away.” It will be sponsored by Calgon bath products, “Take me Away.”

Swamp Busting: a new national sport

I feel like I am in a modern sequel to Cool Hand Luke. “What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.” In fact, communication as we know it is not working. Like the Tower of Babel, language is being deliberately confused except not for any good reason.

Genesis 11:5 “But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”

But here liberals are deliberately confusing the language to obfuscate the truth about what they are doing. And it is not a noble endeavor. The deception is part and parcel of their agenda to deter the law, justice and is pretty much their entire agenda.

Actually, the voting booth process doesn’t seem to be working either. When a person wins, his opponents feel entitled to take over claiming victory and pushing the ‘winner’ out of the job. We must get used to the new rules. Sort of a right of loser ascension — if you can. So the real winner is the loser, get it? The two problems go together, rules and language.

How is that our process?

Now when a person loses a presidential election, the consolation prize is that all pending investigations or charges are dropped. How is that right? How is that equal justice for all? Why should someone get off the hook for losing an election? Bernie and his wife are trying to apply the same rule — call it an entitlement right.

So let’s write that right into Article II; section 1 — Loser’s Rights.

Needless to say, the same entitlement right to immunity shall also apply to the DNC, or party apparatus that lost. Got that? Sure, it is perfectly logical then that the scandal which swept up not one but two DNC chairs, and their candidate, should be exempt from any investigation. It’s just not fair that they even have to answer questions about it.

Even those IT guys who were working for it shall get an exemption — at least so far. Are we going to have to repeal this law they seem to be asserting to get to the bottom of it, and hold those accountable who engaged in this activity? Maybe so, if I can just find it first. It’s called the “but Hillary lost law” or the “but Hillary is not the president exemption.”

Language has no interpretation; or language can be interpreted any way you want.

To the best of my knowledge, I thought we were going to drain the swamp not expand it. But the people now positioned — or embedded — in the White House seem hell bent on keeping the Swamp thriving and fertilizing their Deep State roots. Drain = “pump it up.”

And those Obama or Clinton holdovers, who I thought are a major problem, and a source of leaks, are now being enshrined into the new administration. Particularly into the National Security Council, thanks to a Trump appointee. Say what? Call me baffled. I know it is not on Trump’s order but the vague open language of the winner is now liberally reinterpreted to the “protection of swamp creatures” — must be evolving language.

Worse, it seems said appointee has now taken over and has veto power over Trump people. Yeah, that language again must be causing the problem. Still, when Trump supporters point out our grievance, it is interpreted as an “attack on McMaster.”

Trump seems to be surrounded now by the enemy insurgency. Wait, I thought we were the insurgency? This is the Swamp insurgency. The Deep State has spread its tentacles as far as it can, right through the current White House as if it owned the Oval Office — which it doesn’t. The Swamp is not ceding ground but gaining it.

To further erode the fairness in draining the swamp, one of the chief offenders of the Obama administration in unmasking individuals (identifying them), Susan Rice, is now assured a permanent security clearance to classified information. Likely her future career has become dependent on it. Language must be the culprit. Are we seeing a pattern?

Words also get in my way, lately.

One sentence keeps on popping into my head at least a couple times a day. That is “I have never in my life seen anything like this!” But of course I haven’t, because it has never happened before. Period! One cannot go back in history because it is not there.

You would think with the new emphasis on the problems of Sanctuary Cities we need a change. But low and behold the Sanctuary cities — one and more to follow — are now suing the federal government to preserve their lawless activities that we must fund. Yet the people support a new change. But lawlessness is enshrined as the law of the land.

Sound like progress? It would if you were progressive. In fact, the steady leaking of information would sound like a wonderful “whistle blower” thing; rather than undermining a new sitting president, his agenda, and obfuscating the voting process of the people.

Welcome to the new language era where: winning means losing, losing means winning, wrong means right, loyalty means disloyalty, disloyalty gets accolades, doing what you promised is treason, and treason means respecting the will of the voters. Criminals have protected status and Drain the Swamp means create more Swamp Gas.

Stay in your own lane and respect the signs or boundaries, however you interpret them.

‘Swamp Busting’ may yet catch on. But so far it is still a quirky, little understood fad.

Summer Green Sale

What would summer be without a good sale? So for a limited time only, if you buy a Ford Fusion you could drive it off the lot with a bonus load of marijuana in the trunk. Just for your patronage.

This is causing quite a stir around the country, as you can imagine. In Colorado, for instance, people have been lined up or even camping out in front of Ford dealers waiting for test drives.

Supplies are limited, so first come…..

Sick swamp culture in Capitol

Forget Obamacare and healthcare, we are a sick country. Sick in the way of very ill needing extraordinary, urgent treatment to get it off the sick bed.

But the sickness is coming from Congress and the swamp in DC. And so far it is collectively refusing the treatment. The antibiotics are there and the IV waits. But we have a body and culture that persistently refuses to take the medicine.

The Intellectual Idiot

I resisted the temptation to title it Intellectualized idiot.

Here’s a really interesting piece I only read recently. It may be a bit general and comes from a very accredited thinker/writer. I guess it was quite popular but I just discovered it.

He also requires anyone sharing it do so in full crediting it as extracted from his larger “Skin in the Game”. I only post the article, there are some updates to it at the link below.

The Intellectual Yet Idiot

View story at Medium.com
Nassim Nicholas Taleb

What we have been seeing worldwide, from India to the UK to the US, is the rebellion against the inner circle of no-skin-in-the-game policymaking “clerks” and journalists-insiders, that class of paternalistic semi-intellectual experts with some Ivy league, Oxford-Cambridge, or similar label-driven education who are telling the rest of us 1) what to do, 2) what to eat, 3) how to speak, 4) how to think… and 5) who to vote for.

But the problem is the one-eyed following the blind: these self-described members of the “intelligentsia” can’t find a coconut in Coconut Island, meaning they aren’t intelligent enough to define intelligence hence fall into circularities — but their main skill is capacity to pass exams written by people like them. With psychology papers replicating less than 40%, dietary advice reversing after 30 years of fatphobia, macroeconomic analysis working worse than astrology, the appointment of Bernanke who was less than clueless of the risks, and pharmaceutical trials replicating at best only 1/3 of the time, people are perfectly entitled to rely on their own ancestral instinct and listen to their grandmothers (or Montaigne and such filtered classical knowledge) with a better track record than these policymaking goons.

Indeed one can see that these academico-bureaucrats who feel entitled to run our lives aren’t even rigorous, whether in medical statistics or policymaking. They can’t tell science from scientism — in fact in their image-oriented minds scientism looks more scientific than real science. (For instance it is trivial to show the following: much of what the Cass-Sunstein-Richard Thaler types — those who want to “nudge” us into some behavior — much of what they would classify as “rational” or “irrational” (or some such categories indicating deviation from a desired or prescribed protocol) comes from their misunderstanding of probability theory and cosmetic use of first-order models.) They are also prone to mistake the ensemble for the linear aggregation of its components as we saw in the chapter extending the minority rule.

The Intellectual Yet Idiot is a production of modernity hence has been accelerating since the mid twentieth century, to reach its local supremum today, along with the broad category of people without skin-in-the-game who have been invading many walks of life. Why? Simply, in most countries, the government’s role is between five and ten times what it was a century ago (expressed in percentage of GDP). The IYI seems ubiquitous in our lives but is still a small minority and is rarely seen outside specialized outlets, think tanks, the media, and universities — most people have proper jobs and there are not many openings for the IYI.

Beware the semi-erudite who thinks he is an erudite. He fails to naturally detect sophistry.

The IYI pathologizes others for doing things he doesn’t understand without ever realizing it is his understanding that may be limited. He thinks people should act according to their best interests and he knows their interests, particularly if they are “red necks” or English non-crisp-vowel class who voted for Brexit. When plebeians do something that makes sense to them, but not to him, the IYI uses the term “uneducated”. What we generally call participation in the political process, he calls by two distinct designations: “democracy” when it fits the IYI, and “populism” when the plebeians dare voting in a way that contradicts his preferences. While rich people believe in one tax dollar one vote, more humanistic ones in one man one vote, Monsanto in one lobbyist one vote, the IYI believes in one Ivy League degree one-vote, with some equivalence for foreign elite schools and PhDs as these are needed in the club.

More socially, the IYI subscribes to The New Yorker. He never curses on twitter. He speaks of “equality of races” and “economic equality” but never went out drinking with a minority cab driver (again, no real skin in the game as the concept is foreign to the IYI). Those in the U.K. have been taken for a ride by Tony Blair. The modern IYI has attended more than one TEDx talks in person or watched more than two TED talks on Youtube. Not only did he vote for Hillary Monsanto-Malmaison because she seems electable and some such circular reasoning, but holds that anyone who doesn’t do so is mentally ill.

The IYI has a copy of the first hardback edition of The Black Swan on his shelves, but mistakes absence of evidence for evidence of absence. He believes that GMOs are “science”, that the “technology” is not different from conventional breeding as a result of his readiness to confuse science with scientism.

Typically, the IYI get the first order logic right, but not second-order (or higher) effects making him totally incompetent in complex domains. In the comfort of his suburban home with 2-car garage, he advocated the “removal” of Gadhafi because he was “a dictator”, not realizing that removals have consequences (recall that he has no skin in the game and doesn’t pay for results).

The IYI has been wrong, historically, on Stalinism, Maoism, GMOs, Iraq, Libya, Syria, lobotomies, urban planning, low carbohydrate diets, gym machines, behaviorism, transfats, freudianism, portfolio theory, linear regression, Gaussianism, Salafism, dynamic stochastic equilibrium modeling, housing projects, selfish gene, election forecasting models, Bernie Madoff (pre-blowup) and p-values. But he is convinced that his current position is right.

The IYI is member of a club to get traveling privileges; if social scientist he uses statistics without knowing how they are derived (like Steven Pinker and psycholophasters in general); when in the UK, he goes to literary festivals; he drinks red wine with steak (never white); he used to believe that fat was harmful and has now completely reversed; he takes statins because his doctor told him to do so; he fails to understand ergodicity and when explained to him, he forgets about it soon later; he doesn’t use Yiddish words even when talking business; he studies grammar before speaking a language; he has a cousin who worked with someone who knows the Queen; he has never read Frederic Dard, Libanius Antiochus, Michael Oakeshot, John Gray, Amianus Marcellinus, Ibn Battuta, Saadiah Gaon, or Joseph De Maistre; he has never gotten drunk with Russians; he never drank to the point when one starts breaking glasses (or, preferably, chairs); he doesn’t even know the difference between Hecate and Hecuba (which in Brooklynese is “can’t tell sh**t from shinola”); he doesn’t know that there is no difference between “pseudointellectual” and “intellectual” in the absence of skin in the game; has mentioned quantum mechanics at least twice in the past five years in conversations that had nothing to do with physics.

He knows at any point in time what his words or actions are doing to his reputation.

But a much easier marker: he doesn’t even deadlift.

The Blind and the Very Blind

Let’s suspend the satirical for a minute.

IYIs fail to distinguish between the letter and the spirit of things. They are so blinded by verbalistic notions such as science, education, democracy, racism, equality, evidence, rationality and similar buzzwords that they can be easily taken for a ride. They can thus cause monstrous iatrogenics[1] without even feeling a shade of a guilt, because they are convinced that they mean well and that they can be thus justified to ignore the deep effect on reality. You would laugh at the doctor who nearly kills his patient yet argues about the effectiveness of his efforts because he lowered the latter’s cholesterol, missing that a metric that correlates to health is not quite health –it took a long time for medicine to convince its practitioners that health was what they needed to work on, not the exercise of what they thought was “science”, hence doing nothing was quite often preferable (via negativa). But yet, in a different domain, say foreign policy, a neo-con who doesn’t realize he has this mental defect would never feel any guilt for blowing up a country such as Libya, Iraq, or Syria, for the sake of “democracy”. I’ve tried to explain via negativa to a neocon: it was like trying to describe colors to someone born blind.

IYIs can be feel satisfied giving their money to a group aimed at “saving the children” who will spend most of it making powerpoint presentation and organizing conferences on how to save the children and completely miss the inconsistency.

Likewise an IYI routinely fails to make a distinction between an institution (say formal university setting and credentialization) and what its true aim is (knowledge, rigor in reasoning) –I’ve even seen a French academic arguing against a mathematician who had great (and useful) contributions because the former “didn’t go to a good school” when he was eighteen or so.

The propensity to this mental disability may be shared by all humans, and it has to be an ingrained defect, except that it disappears under skin in the game.

Dems lose on a champagne, caviar budget

One of the strangest, and funniest, things I witnessed was Van Jones prosecuting Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. Never mind that 8 months later, Dems never had a real autopsy over the death of Hillary’s campaign.

He gave a speech in Chicago with just that subject on the docket.

The Hill — People’s Summit in Chicago.

“The Hillary Clinton campaign did not spend their money on white workers, and they did not spend it on people of color. They spent it on themselves,” Jones told a packed house at McCormick Place in Chicago. “They spent it on themselves, let’s be honest.”

“Let’s be honest,” Jones continued. “They took a billion dollars, a billion dollars, a billion dollars, and set it on fire, and called it a campaign!”

“That wasn’t a campaign. That’s not a campaign.”

Jones continued, attacking the Clinton campaign’s reliance on consultants and polling data that proved to be wrong.

It could be the case that she spent more money than anyone in history to not get elected.

Now, despite all the money flowing into the Georgia-6th District, once again their expensive scorched earth strategy ended in ashes, with Ossoff losing by 6 points.

It is not what pundits expected and it wasn’t what Ossoff hoped. And he was beat by a woman…with a real vagina rather than a Planned Parenthoody imposter.

Elections have consequences, for sure….. they empty bank accounts. So while Republicans want to Drain the Swamp, the Democrats just want to drain bank accounts.

Where, what “Matter”?

noun (Dictionary.com)
1. – the substance or substances of which any physical object consists or is composed: the matter of which the earth is made.
2. – physical or corporeal substance in general, whether solid, liquid, or gaseous, especially as distinguished from incorporeal substance, as spirit or mind, or from qualities, actions, and the like.
3. – something that occupies space.

4. -particular kind of substance: matter

5. -situation, state, affair, or business: trivial matter

6. -an amount or extent reckoned approximately: a matter of 10 miles.

7. – consequence for serious thought.

Wikipedia – “In the classical physics observed in everyday life, matter is any substance that has mass and takes up space; this includes atoms and anything made up of these, but not other energy phenomena or waves such as light or sound. More generally, however, in (modern) physics, matter is not a fundamental concept because a universal definition of it is elusive; for example, the elementary constituents of atoms may be point particles, each having no volume individually.”

Now that I have looked, it seems nowhere can I find that “matter” is a criminal investigation. Or maybe it is close to #5 or #7? Well, if Loretta Lynch told Comey to call the Hillary “criminal investigation” a matter, and he did, I expected to find a proper notation or legal definition somewhere. But no.

Legal dictionary says Matter is “a substantial, essential thing, opposed to form; facts.”  — Substantial, essential “thing“? – keep looking.

According to Science: (Live Science), there are five stages of matter: Solids, liquids, gases, plasma, Bose-Einstein condensates. Yet I see nowhere any stage morphs into a criminal investigation.

Or maybe we have discovered a brand new type of matter that has been so far elusive for millennia? I’d like to be first to name it “Lynch matter”: i.e the criminal investigation of a corrupt politico or politician. Elusive, slippery, evasive by nature.

But I still sort of like the term “criminal investigation,”… that’s just me.

The Trauma From Obama

As the media is all about analyzing Trump’s first hundred days with an accusatory eye, I thought it was time to take the temperature of the country. That’s putting it mildly.

I like the medical analogy with America as the patient. So we elected Obama, whether you want to look at that like contracting a chronic illness or severe injury is beside the point.

It’s more like we suffered some ailment that grew progressively worse over the 8 years Obama was in office. Not enough care or attention was given it; in fact it got none. Then, since the election, and more recently, we were treated to a parade of opposition.

I finally diagnosed into his second term that it seemed America was in Trauma — becoming a slave to its condition. You knew it wasn’t getting any better and watched it get worse. After the shock wore off there was still a lot of trauma. So “no drama Obama” caused a whole lot of trauma.

Right into Trump’s inauguration that Obama trauma continued. One thing I’ve learned from people who studied the subject is the body does not heal itself fully while it is in trauma. And if you know anything about x-rays, they cannot get real clear pictures of something with so much trauma around it.

So we had to shake off that trauma from Obama. Not easy. He had infected every part of the nation, from one end to the other, and divided the country by every measure possible. He also politicized about every part of government. No wonder we were in that state.

Even when Trump came into office, it was immediately obvious there were Obama loyalists, hangers on, and Deep State opposition almost everywhere. Leftists began a stampede of protests. Democrats promised to oppose anything and everything.

Yet here we were still a traumatized nation. reluctant to provide us any relief. Obama’s loyalists came out kicking the injury, reviving the pain at every opportunity. It’s hard for one to deny the state we were in under Obama. The first step would be to rid ourselves of the trauma to let healing begin.

However, can you really ever heal from something as traumatic as Obama’s legacy? I guess you would also have to talk to abuse victims to examine that part. And yes, it is possible to be in trauma while also being abused.

Obama’s preface, in the unspoken

While Obama is still drafting his book, I’ll practice my satire in writing what should be his preface, if only someone slipped him a dose of truth serum. One thing you can count on is that his finished excuse-a-log won’t look like this. (unless you read between lines)

To the reader

After wearing the nom de plume of President of the United States for eight years like no one else ever– because I’ve always been sort of confused about my real name anyway — I feel I owe it to the people, who had the pleasure of putting me in that office, to tell them how right they were to bestow their blind allegiance in me.

They, and you the reader, will be eternally the better for it. Always keep believing.

No longer being able to use that particular POTUS title will not stop me from showing the same arrogance and narcissism that I always… well, that got me this far.

To prove how correct I am, my first big speaking engagement is set at 400 thousand, and the price will only go up from there. My book deal commanded an historic 60 million for my and Michele’s books. And what a bargain they got. I feel obligated to tell you in case you were surprised at the size of the number. I’m projected to be on course to being worth about 250 million in 15 years — by conservative estimates.

It was always my opinion that I should tell you what I think you need to know. And being that I have been entrusted with the sole liberty to write the history of this country, everything else should be ignored. You also should really appreciate the modest price of this book because only I know how much I spent creating it.

Enjoy.

Now that I think of it, his version of murdering the truth will probably be far worse. But his sycophants will lap it up because to admit his allergy to the truth, at this point, destroys the gigantic myth of his entire legacy.
