I am home. Today I feel curiously non-verbal, so I apologize for the disjointed nature of this post.
So, I have proof the airlines are out to get me – all of them.
Okay, it’s not so much proof as the fact that I can’t get anywhere without a cancellation/delay/baggage loss, but on the other hands this seems to happen to everyone who travels to the point a trip without any of those is startling.
Of course this is because our government bails out the airlines when they insult so many customers that people will drive across country rather than fly. So, what do they learn? Be inefficient, get more money.
Actually that also relates to our government.
Which reminds me, doom, gloom, horrible things loom: you realize the NSA didn’t read this blog post before I put it up? How can any country survive such lax ways of handling information? How can I get used to privacy again?
We must un-shut the government even at the cost of paralyzing all of the economy with the worst law ever written implemented in the worst way possible. Otherwise, who will make us use toxic-metal shedding lightbulbs?
If you wrote this as a plot, you could never sell it. The law is demonstrably destroying the economy, yet the party trying to stop it is the one that can’t be blamed for it. Meanwhile the Frankensteins who cobbled it together are saying “full speed ahead”.
Is it because they think that they’ve got vote fraud SO sewn up they don’t think they have to worry? Is it because they think the votes of the people hired to administer this three ring circus will out-leverage the rest of the country? Or is it that they hate us and wish us to collapse? Or “yes”?
Or is it that they’re stupid. I mean, really, really stupid. Lethal levels of stupid? After all more than one of them has seemed to intimate that in the ideal society everyone works at government make-work jobs. And yet… there would be food and electricity and everything. Think on this a while.
Meanwhile? What if they gave a government shut down and no one noticed? Other than the contrived instances they want us to notice?
Wall Street didn’t react at all to the shut down. What does this mean?
We’re too great a nation to have this sclerotic, bizarre and STUPID government. Let’s continue with our business as if they didn’t exist.
