But where I will agree that honesty is the best policy 99.99% of the time, when you're trying to stave off the ravages of economic depression, that .01% comes awfully darn heavily into play because the biggest single factor is PERCEPTION... only.

Although, the disinclination to narrow profit margins is right up there with it.

Again, cornered psychopaths are ruthless and don't stop until FORCED.

...

This is very significant geopolitically, as well as illustrative of my point....

Even though I've lost hope for the future of socialism. I know it takes fantastically strong humans to pull it off. Not just brilliant and altruistic leadership, but an unbreakable population as well. Yes, the same can be said for capitalism, but without that level of centralized power, capitalism will always support individuals to resist tyranny.

Sort of rattles me they picked now for a new constitution, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will devolve into capitulation to the forces arrayed against them. I gotta keep my heartbeat steady.

My heroes are dead, and now the anxiety for the people is greater. Nice to see that ALBA isn't dead, though for certain it is vastly weaker... and weakening.

I am telling this to myself as I cower nervously in the suddenly sere again air where, theoretically, it's impossible for air to be sere. I mean, the PACIFIC OCEAN isn't supposed to let this happen. I imagine it's just another few hours of it, like has already happened a couple times in the last week, but... still. My face stings and it feels like my contacts are shriveling, except I'm not wearing contacts.

29 and 228 still missing. Number one in deaths and property loss and racing toward the size award, and it will be only a sudden change in prevailing conditions that will stop it. I can't talk.

Do you really have to fall all over yourself to point it out that Darth Fudd was seriously much worse than Trump? You maybe, for partisan purposes, could omit to admit they're nowhere near the same level of terrible, but IS it really so mandatory to your status to approach a cogent point this way? Scared to yell at your own side for its complete loss of perspective? Why?

And after you answer that, answer why it's your side at all.

I will try to gather the moxie to explain some of my problems with it — I mean, beside that it happened at all — when I pull myself together better. I'll update this post with it if I get it together tonight, or try again tomorrow.

Just, suffice it to say for now that Trump's extremely insensitive tweet about it was making a cogent point. I don't know if he has any true idea about the management problems, but the point was a goddam bullseye. Trying to mention the real problems while the fires rage is the only way to get eyeballs on them, but people act like a true effort to alleviate the problems is the same as farting in a crowded elevator.

Fucking twits out there trying hard to guarantee we never make our way out of this hell... clambering for new ways to virtue signal through it.

And it probably has something to do with not enough people taking the time to listen to Blueprint for Armageddon. Scroll down. Easy to figure out how to download the mp3s, and you should do it because it will move behind a paywall pretty soon and you should NOT miss it.

I think, actually, that it should be required listening before our kids get out of grade school... if we'd like a chance for that war to have ended all war before another century has passed.
