Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it – no matter if I have said it! – except it agree with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Siddhartha Gautama, a.k.a. the Buddha

Ah-hah, now it makes sense!

I’ve said it before, and I fail to heed it myself at times. When the media is frothing at the gumline, about how horrible something is, be it weather or politics, you had best look under the curtain to see what the hell they are hiding.

In this case, the Kavanaugh ascendence. Horrid right wing conspiracy to undermine 100 years of lefty policy, blah blah blah,,,,

Ah, the sudden reversal of the senate committee that had been hung in the balance for weeks assessing the viability of a nut jobs sexual fantasy from 30 years ago,,,

Whats behind the curtain?

Remus links and quotes part of it here. And some elaboration here.

Money.

Can’t have the normies suckling the teat see that the house of cards just lost another prop. Oh no! Gotta keep ’em distracted from the reality thats about to smash everybody’s teeth in.

Alright, business as usual, same old song and dance routine, and the masses suck up the vomit like its a mocha latte from Chard-bucks. Hell, even I bought into the “Kavanaugh is a constitutionalist ” meme. Uh, no, he ain’t. The man had a lot of hand in writing the Patriot Act under the Shrub. You know, THE Patriot Act that wasn’t patriotic, had near zero accountability to ANY constitutional wording, anywhere, and yet passed with accolades of approval until sometime later when we realized it had pretty much gutted the BoR’s. Yeah, that one! It has Kavanaughs hand up its backside and thus his seal of approval by association. No wonder Zombie Ginsberg didn’t have an aneurysm within minutes of his swearing in; he’s one of them, heart and soul.

Sorry Dawg, we’ve been had.

Its back to scraping up a living (no change there 😒) building my yak while scraps of paper with dead presidents are still being accepted as ‘worth something more than wiping your ass with”, and carrying on towards whatever the hell our future holds. I think they are able to manipulate things enough, that BEFORE the financial house of cards implodes, they will kick off that little civil war they are brewing. Sadly, I don’t think they have anywhere near any idea how out of control that wildfire would get, nor how quickly.

But I sincerely hope to be one that is still around when the ashes have settled. I’m a realist though and think the odds of that are on the magnitude of hitting the powerball back to back 5 times.

SSDD. Carry on.

    The R’s have been trying to dissolve the BoR from the day one.
    Control of the economy and destruction of the middle class are their goals.

    • All I can say to that is ” freedom is where you make it”. Ain’t a damned soul in this world capable of ‘giving’ it, you have to define it for yourself, then make it, take it, whatever ‘it’ is to you. For me, its being the ‘outlaw’, living offgrid, ignoring those laws that are total BS, paying only enough attention to those laws that make getting along with the rest of society a touch easier. I hate asking (begging) permission for mundane things, like driving, but to not do so only spurs on the jackboots to make other aspects of my life difficult. Here, that is easier than some other places I have lived. Then again, look around and you’ll find people so far off the societal map as to not exist in the eyes of that which shouldn’t have a name let alone power.
      The R’s and D’s are really only two sides of the same coin now. I say lets toss the whole thing and start with Jeffersons second idea of tribal communities.
