Dog Poet Transmitting.......
The whole time that I have been watching this Trump-Fest and given how polluted and appetite driven is the general mindset and given how ferociously aggressive is the Zio-Government, Booty Bandit Media... it was clear to me that Trump was playing a role that has been played by many another; most recently John Kerry and that is the role of Stalking Horse. No... that is not the name of an Apache warrior. That is the name of a character who sucks a required amount of air out of the room so that... well, you know what happens when the brain is deprived of oxygen? One might think we are dealing in metaphor or analogy but we are dealing with literal reality and it's also amusing at a distance and tragic up close because we've been in Stalin country for some time now and all that matters is who counts the votes but the farce must go on. By the way... “How many divisions does the Pope have?”
Well, Visible, stop beating around the bush. This jumped up bag of rampaging ego with his outrageous syntax, sucked from the marrow of demagogue central is only on stage to create an inevitability for Nefarious Clinton and others are noting it too. It especially becomes true when that bloated caricature, Rush Limbaugh becomes his apologist.
Apropos of yesterday's Origami, there are certain hard and cold mathematical truths that apply to the world of economics and... keep in mind that the same truths don't apply to every system but a few do and how you discover these truths is by observing what has happened before; this article makes a good point but is nowhere near comprehensive overall; no knock on the author... the only people who really understand how economic systems work are those who want no part of them. Anyone involved in them has skin in the game and can't be counted on to be impartial. This is not to say they aren't savvy but... savvy economically has extremely narrow parameters when it comes to negotiating one's way out of that area of performance- cue Woman in the Dunes. If it were true that we only lived one life and that was it... maybe he who dies with the most toys wins but... even then... you got to go somewhere and what I know for a fact is that the deeper you go into matter, at whatever level you are experiencing it on, or focusing on it... the more compressed and the hotter it gets and the opposite is also true but... we have given these examples before.
My own personal feelings about the whole thing is... ♫give yourself away, each and every day and you will get yourself back every time♫ but that's just me and if you ask any suit and tie or high heeled sophisticate about this, they will tell you that's counterproductive and makes no sense and that's only the kindest thing they will ever say and almost none of them will say that. They will use other terms to define people like that. The only time they like people like that is after they are dead and then they can either make money off of them or get laid talking about them.
Obviously we all have occupations of one sort or another, something we are natively disposed to accomplish. Sometimes circumstances are so desperate that one does not even have the opportunity to do this and sometimes circumstances contain so much prosperity that people are not inclined to accomplish it and sometimes shit happens. Other times people have been bred and conditioned into such a state that the more useless the occupation the more it is celebrated and revered. At all times and at any of these times, it pays to have a timeless perspective because some things are always true and some things never are but as times change the conventional wisdom adapts, according to what it is told and one should never forget that conventional wisdom is not ageless wisdom. Ageless wisdom doesn't adapt to anything. Everything else adapts to it or else it would not be ageless; non? This should be easily understood by anyone. It is simple logic so... what is it that fucks people's heads up so much that this not only never enters their heads but they don't have the wit to consider it in the first place?
Think of life as an investment. Buffet and Gates and a host of others do and according to their values they are kicking ass in disrespect of their own chosen interpretations of what constitutes something of value. Think of the fruits of your values, transformed into investments, as a kind of currency. Next; consider the areas in which this currency is taken in exchange for goods and services; isn't that one of the definitions of currency? BUT... more importantly, consider the areas in which any currency is irrelevant. Here and there you will encounter some variant on that 'camel through the eye of a needle' allegory.
You will also find other variants having to do with limitations of another kind where, 'your money's no good here' but not in a good way (grin). The world continues as it does and is composed of all the suffering that so many people object to and use as an argument for why there can be no god... because of ignorant desire and that accounts for planetary fever that makes it possible for people to pursue something that has no possibility of transport outside of the locality they are in and in which they themselves are only temporary residents. What has just been said here is true and cannot be refuted according to what is specifically stated. Sure... there are all kinds of justifications that one can make but their range of application is as limited as the currency they value far above what they cast aside as worthless and which is priceless. Life is saturated with irony and illusion. Perhaps one is the result of the other.
When you think about it all in the context of what is being presented here, it defines what passes for sanity as absurdity in motion; something like the Pacific garbage island, floating on a restless ocean. What do they say; “Garbage in, garbage out”? The world is upside down. What is considered crazy is generally far more sane than what is considered sane. The problem is that so many bought in to the lie and now they are dressed in it, they eat and have sex with it. They reproduce in it. They wake up in it and go to sleep in it. Quite often they go to sleep in it and don't wake up but... no one stays asleep forever. I would say that is occasionally one of the most effective forms of punishment when one is awakened and sees with clarity, the impact of their actions. Of course, it might not be intended as punishment but it most definitely acts as inspiration for a most impressive stretch of time, depending on what it is that someone awakens to.
We are in no mood to push the idea of catastrophe. We only comment on what we see and each of us sees to a particular depth. A reader was kind enough to bring this to our attention yesterday. There is a scientific basis to things that happen and there is also a predictability; like when Seismologists say that it is not an if, when it comes to a major California earthquake, it is a when. Yesterday we received a comment from anonymous that was so amusing and partly because it was unintended in respect of how it would come across. Anyway... here it is “I see you've joined the ranks of the doom and gloomers "we're all going to die in an earthquake or tsunami" crowd. Thanks for the fear porn ... You are well aware it's the last thing we need .. I live by the coast so what am I supposed to think .. That all the lovely children and the homeless and the weak and the old and all the innocents are going to be swallowed up by the earth or swept away by a tidal wave. What kind of God do you follow anyway you fear monger ... Shame” Heh heh... I highlighted the part that moved me, especially was I moved by it being okay for everyone else who didn't get mentioned to be wiped out.
My response was that all of these people and everyone else was going to die in any case and did this person think that dying from stomach cancer, ALS, police or corporation sanctioned murder or... or... in a hospital at the hands of robot psychopaths, was better than an earthquake or a tidal wave? I added on a few possibilities at the end but immediately I realize that I left out torture and the deprivations and depravities of war.
It never fails to amaze me the way that people reason things out. Of course, there is always the chance that malice is their motivation but this is all irrelevant. The point is that people get all bent out of shape about something that is an observable fact of existence that is taking place around them every day and somehow they think it won't happen or that one thing is bad and another is good and it reminds me of all the alcoholics in places of power who get hysterical about natural and certain recreational and spiritual drug use and do not realize that they are taking a drug far worse and far more dangerous but which happens to be legal and furthermore, the most toxic drugs of all are manufactured by the pharmaceutical companies and funneled to the unsuspecting public by corrupt and inept physicians and which kill exponentially more people than so called illegal drugs. One of the reasons that so called illegal drugs are illegal is because they tend to sometimes wake people up in ways that the controllers don't like. You can be sure that the controllers get to use all the high end illegal drugs they want and also that they are the biggest manufacturers and transporters of illegal drugs on the planet.
Yeah... it never fails to amaze me how uninformed hypocrites buy into the transparent bullshit they have been captivated by and decide to legislate morality from the most immoral positions of all. So it turns out that those who are not criminals are turned into criminals by criminals, whose crimes so dwarf in scope the non existent crimes of those rendered into outcasts by Draconian lawmakers, as to be made impossible to compare. It is beyond apples and oranges and more like apples and orangutans. Whoops! We went off on a rant. How inconsiderate of us and here we are at the end of the posting too. See you after awhile...
