The Difference Between Lies and Bullshit

________________________

The point isn’t that Bush knew there weren’t WMDs in Iraq, but that he didn’t care whether there were or not. This is the difference between a lie and bullshit… a lie is saying something you know to be untrue, bullshit is saying something without caring to find out if it’s true.

15 November 2017. The Two Greatest Russian Rulers of the Past Century… Stalin and Putin

******

________________________

In ranking him in comparison to his predecessors of the 20th-century, Stalin is Putin’s only peer in the realm of political achievements. However, they used radically different methods.

D K Kiselyov

Head of Rossiya Segodnya

Let’s keep it simple. In the past century, only two Russian rulers were “great”… I V Stalin and V V Putin. This isn’t a comment on their morals or goodness as men… it’s a comment on their effectiveness as rulers. Make no mistake, V V Putin has no peers amongst contemporary leaders (except for Paramount Leader Xi of China)… the others are pygmies… moral midgets and not statesmen in any way. G W Bush, Obama, and Trump (and Madame Hillary too) are farcical figures in comparison.

I dislike the American rightwing “Putin fanboys”… they don’t like the real V V Putin… they’ve made a false idol of the man (especially, Anglo rightwing Orthodox converts). However, that doesn’t negate Vladimir Vladimirovich’s stature as a leader nor does it cancel his place in history (which is secure).

G W Bush was a spoilt rich kid, Obama was an obedient Step n’ Fetchit for the oligarchs, and Trump is nothing but a salesman… a shyster trickster with nothing but a fancy sales-patter and a glitzy exterior (hiding a monstrous vacuity). Madame Hillary is the worst one of the lot, though… she’s a greedy and self-absorbed self-aggrandiser of the worst possible sort. Nothing is illicit for her if it advances her personal position or enriches her. The first three are merely morally corrupt and bad men. Hillary is malevolent and utterly foul (what does that tell you about the loud n’ nasty Hillarybot trolls that infest the net?). As bad as Trump is, he’s not the amoral votary of evil that Hillary is.

Thank God for VVP… he’s keeping the world on an even keel…

Trump Is Not George W Bush

____________________________________

People who think everything is great and who think that those with grievances should just “move to some other country” didn’t elect Trump. Rather, they elected him due to his condemnations of the financial élite and promises of government action to fix up the economy. The major opponents of Trump don’t oppose him for being a “warmonger”, but because he’s allegedly friendly to Russia and not committed to “humanitarian intervention”.

Bush’s politics were a middle-class endorsement of the Establishment against those “troublemakers” and “bleeding hearts” who wanted change. Trump took office in a wave of isolationist and populist sentiments, which other forces didn’t capture. I remember the Bush years very clearly, and I’ve interacted with many Trump supporters. The demographic may be similar, but the worldview of Middle America drastically changed in the last eight years. Criticise Trump all you want, but projecting Michael Moore rhetoric from 2002-07 onto the current moment is just plain silly.

16 June 2016. Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Neoliberals… Both “Conservative” and “Liberal”

00 I did not cause the national debt. 160616

______________________________

Don’t vote for Trump the Chump or Chilly Hilly… both are neoliberal pro-Corporatist scummers. If he runs, vote for Bernie… if not, vote for Jill Stein. Don’t vote for either side of the duopoly. BOTH ARE EQUALLY EVIL. The presidencies of George W Bush and Bill Clinton proved that. There wasn’t a tuppence worth of difference between Bush and Clinton. Do reflect on this… Chilly Hilly is Bill’s wife… Bill is using her to subvert the Constitution. Do ponder that…
