4 March 2018. I AM “Older Than Dirt”

________________________

I remember phones on the wall, colour TVs that were pieces of furniture in the living room, no cable TV (let alone digital), no Mickey Dee’s or the Colonel (both came in the late 60s), Walkmans, cassette tapes, eight-tracks, TV-dinners, Edsels, transistor radios, and so much more… like rolling joints over a Grand Funk album cover (the prefered sort was the E Pluribus Funk cover shaped like a silver dollar). I AM “older than dirt”… it doesn’t bother me.

I AM an “elder”… but to decide whether I have wisdom or not is up to you, not me…

24 February 2018. Babylon Bee Posts Satire on Russiagate… Good Stuff

________________________

Here is the satire referenced:

Russia Announces New Plan to Let the USA Tear Itself Apart Unaided

On Thursday, after years of meddling by Russian agents, Russia-funded bots, and hacking attempts, the Kremlin announced it would withdraw from all activity in the USA, and would instead allow the country to tear itself apart without any help from them. President Putin said in a press conference:

Our spies and bots simply couldn’t keep up with the rapid pace at which America is destroying itself. They’re on the verge of tearing each other to shreds. Really, it’s quite impressive. Our spies stationed abroad tried their hardest to divide America, but were outpaced and outclassed at every turn by the country’s highly-motivated politicians and partisan activists, who are doing a far better job than his own spies could at ripping the country apart. They don’t need our help, apparently. So, we’ll just get out of the way and let them have at it. Bravo, America!

This is satire, but it has truth in it. Remember what satire is… it’s using irony and humour to say “unsayable” things. This is stark truth… the USA is ripping itself apart and has done so since the time of Ronald Reagan. We’re paying for “Greed is good” and “The race goes to the swiftest”. Do note that the Born Again crowd cheers the nabobs of selfishness on. It tells you much about both groups, does it not?

VVP simply believes, “A bad peace is better than a good war”… his elder brother died in Leningrad during the siege due to starvation-related disease. Nearly all Russians feel the same way. Russians think that Americans are crazy to call World War II “the Good War”. As one of my friends at the Centre put it:

Only unbalanced and insane people call war “good”.

America IS tearing itself apart. Clinton and Trump are only symptoms… not causes. Neoliberalism is ripping the USA apart… its interlocutors simply watch and wonder. They aren’t doing anything… we’re doing it all on our own.
