I’m an information sponge. I used to have a sticker on my bass that read “my brain is stuffed with trivial shit that often turns out useful. ” Yeah, that kind of info sponge.
What Sarah brings up in her post started something in my brain like an over worked phone operater in the early 1900s. Wires flying everywhere making some connections rerouting others and, well, now I need to do some thinking.
You may be aware of the the term ‘GIGO’; garbage in, garbage out. When your info is polluted with garbage, no matter how true your processor, what comes out will still be polluted. If her claims are true (and my brain is saying it is, past experiance with government accounting and quotas as basis,,,) some other things that had me scratching my head are going to take on a different perspective.
I have a feeling there is a whole lot more going on than even the conspiracy peeps can imagine. And most of what we do see, hear, etc, is the smoke and mirrors and far more so than I suspected.
Seriously, Give it a read, you won’t be sorry.
