PostHeaderIcon Random Thoughts From A Dimming Mind

As stated in earlier articles, I spent the more productive time of my life as a systems analyst. Since retirement, I have frequently amused myself with attempts to analyze current events and predict likely outcomes – with ever decreasing accuracy as is obvious to those who follow this blog. So I have given that up. Yet, lacking the common sense to shut-up completely, I offer the following random questions and observations (dare I say insights?) concerning several items lately in the news:

Fake News (aka intentionally misleading (mis)information):
– Aren’t most of us old enough to remember all those “genuine” UFO sightings from the 50’s and 60’s? And the “leaks” from government/military insiders assuring us that amazing things RE aliens were being hidden from us? Can this have been other than fake news? (OK, toss in a few genuinely confused people if you must.)
– Then looking much further back, can there be any doubt that all organized religions are based on fake news?
– Can there be any serious doubt that most of this is nothing more than an attempt to keep our government in a constant state of turmoil so that little or none of the Trump agenda can be realized?

The various hazards inherent in a Trump presidency:
– To begin with, how can the “media” make so much of a few amateurish blunders by Trump when they covered up for obvious treason by the late President and influence peddling by his first Secretary of State? Might they be relying on our collective ignorance and indifference?
– How can the talking heads get so excited when Trump chooses not to play the “game” by traditional rules when the last president who chose not to play by the rules caused the downfall of our primary enemy in the process?
– Why would any sane society allow the deliberate destruction of a duly elected leader at the clear detriment to the nation’s future? After all, how much damage can one person accidentally do in 4 years after what the Obamanation intentionally did in 8 years?

The So-called Russian Interference in our “Democracy”:
– Is one to suppose it is harder to subvert a Republic? (Hint, of course it is. Many of the critical issues are defined by a Constitution rather that being left to the passing fancy of the ignorant mob.)
All of our enemies, foreign and domestic (and including some supposed “allies”), regularly spy on us by whatever means are available. No news there.
– I have yet to see a shred of evidence that the Kremlin somehow preferred Trump to Clinton as POTUS. After all, was it not Hillary who sold them control of must of our uranium?

The Firing of James Comey, late Director of the FBI:
– Even though he deserved to be fired, Director Comey was put in an impossible position. His superiors, all the way up to the Obamanation were determined to protect Hillary Clinton from her obvious crimes.
Further, his more direct superior, then Attorney General Loretta Lynch, had compromised herself via an airport meeting with Bill Clinton, ex President and partner of the criminal Hillary.
– So, Comey seemingly did the only thing left to him, laying out Hillary’s various crimes in a public presentation then doing as he was required, seemingly dismissing it all as somehow not presecutable (lacking the supporting judgment of a Grand Jury as our Constitution requires).

Campus Craziness:
– Who put these immature, indoctrinated morons (students) in charge of our universities?
-bWhy do we-the-sheeple continue to fund this nonsense? Said differently, if the morons/students want to run the educational system, why not let them also pay for it? (Remember the “golden rule” – whoever provides the gold gets to make the rules.)
-bHow can the same society that worried so about possibly gay scoutmasters not seem to mind when the minds of those same children are left to the ministrations of misfits and traitors?

The Overall State of the Republic:
– Can there be any reasonable doubt that the Soros-funded progressive movement has determined (apparently successfully) to destroy Fox News?
– Can there be any reasonable doubt that the Soros-funded progressive movement has determined (apparently successfully) to destroy our educational system, turning it instead into a vast system of progressive indoctrination?
– Why are the honest people in this Republic so (apparently) afraid to say or do anything about the above?
– As I have asked before, can it be possible that we are dying of our own prosperity?
– Does the process of maturing a useful humanity actually require some level of real threat, some degree of actual effort to survive?
– Can that miracle once known at the Republic of the United States of America survive? Indeed, is it gone already except in the memory of the elderly?
– Can “social media” actually be more dangerous that cancer, nuclear war and terrorism?
How can we, at the same time, be the best educated generation in history and still manage to behave like uninformed morons?

How I miss the mental acuity I once enjoyed, even if I was just deluding myself at the time! I freely admit that I no longer understand the world and most of the people around me (assuming I ever really did). Most of what I see and hear today simply makes no sense to me whatever. It increasingly seems to me that, while in my mind life is simple and can be quite good, many of us go out of our way to make it complicated and unpleasant. And for no good reason.

I don’t really expect answers to this musing but would welcome any conversation that it may inspire. To those of you who may have wished I was gone for good I only ask your patience. Everything in good time.

    Enjoyed that Troy. Dead on sir. Question for you and your readers. Why would a billionaire several times over take on the stink we call inside the beltway? He had a good life. Insulated from most of the crap. Does anyone really think he took the job at considerable expense of his own money to give the Russians intel? No. What DC politicians are deep concerned with. President Trump will expose, might even curtail the payola they have going on. It has gotten worse in the last 16 years. Almost open the last eight years.

    As you know I lived in Whitney RV Community for several years. The sniping and backstabbing got so bad in 2014 there we were in residence 15 days.

    I have lived in six states in my life so far. Visited all of them via two methods. On a motorcycle and via a aircraft. I cannot think of anywhere I disliked more than LWRVC. There are some good people that live there. But the morons and misfits run the program. Sad.

    I paste this to remind your readers of a profound observation by you Troy.

    It has been amazing to me how much better Coleen and I are today when we no longer are concerned about the six or so malcontents that as far as I know are still there doing what Frank was so good at. One I considered a personal friend.

      Jerry,
      I am pleased to tell you that the “misfits” have either moved out of the LWRVC or converted while good new folks have moved in. We now have a very nice and cooperative community in which to live.

  • I seldom agree with your conclusions Troy, but I think that was a solid analysis, so I can’t agree that your mind has dimmed.

    I can’t say where this will end, but it’s clearly being engineered by deep state elements trying to regain control. I things will be clearer after Trump’s visit to Israel.

    Troy, I see nothing lacking in your “mental acuity” although if you spend too much time pondering the current state of affairs I’m sure it would be detrimental. Strange times indeed. There was a time when I could watch the various goings on and predict with reasonable certainty (at least in my own mind) what the eventual outcome would be. I must now admit I have no clue. It’s become painfully evident that a once proud political and governance system has been destroyed. The deep state is real and encompasses both major political parties. Government has been weaponized against the governed. Media from all sides are complicit because they profit from the controversy. The saddest thing is what has happened to what is called social media. It’s no longer social. I recall maybe ten years ago all the talk was about “internet 2.0” or “web 2.0”. All that accomplished was a linking and concentration to propagandize the internet. Total access to every user on multiple channels. That linking was used to trigger what they called “the Arab spring”. They are trying to do it here. I used to have enough faith in the American people to think it would never happen. Now it’s only a question of when. In the end I think Trump will survive, but only in a neutered state that will result in business as usual for the next eight.

    Troy take your considerable mental acuity and spend it on something worth while. Spend your time enriching your life and the lives of those you love. The world around you will go on but your free to participate at your own leisure or not at all. You and I will neither affect change or see it if it comes no matter what that manifestation may be. Do what you love not what they want. This is still America. They may try and tell you what to do but your still free to tell them to go to hell. That’s where I’m at. I watch with amusement and for old time sake piss someone off that really needs it but in the grand scheme I don’t give a darn. I have better things to do. My latest project. https://adirondackplaza.com/groups/gear-heads-and-grease-monkeys/forum/topic/our-runabout-rebuild/ And when I finish that I’ll start another and nobody is going to tell me I can’t. What I choose as important is all that matters and what a gang of blowhards do in Washington DC isn’t worth a minute of my life.
