The Sea of Disinformation

Wednesday, March 29th, 2017

No one knows the #realnews. We’re lucky if we even know who our real friends are & who we’re married to. We swim in a sea of #disinformation.

Welcome to the Information Age

Monday, March 20th, 2017

More and more I can’t watch the news/commentary shows anymore. I, and I think many others, have been alerted, and can now see that it is mostly fake news.

It always was, but now it is much worse because of President Trump. The President is not shy about pointing it out, but it is so over the top, he almost doesn’t need to.

These people aren’t telling me anything. it’s all a bunch of crap. Why am I wasting my time watching this? These are the unanswerable thoughts that begin to intrude.

The scary part is, if it’s all fake news, that means we don’t have any reliable source of information about what is really going on. We may have opinions about this or that, but we have no idea what is going on, and even if we did, there is nothing we could do about it.

What we do have is our common sense, and our ability, based on individual experience, to judge a person’s character based on their public appearances. Thin reeds.

Everything else is just somebody selling something. Welcome to the information age.

The Brave Resistance

Friday, March 17th, 2017

This is what I think. There are a significant number of members of the Democratic Party, the MSM, and even the judiciary, who are actually trying to engineer a coup to overthrow the elected government of the United States. They believe they are the brave #resistance to the Nazi takeover.

They are crazy. It’s not going to happen, but there are enough people suffering from this delusion that leaders like Schumer and Pelosi feel the need to pander to them to maintain their own positions.

I am pretty optimistic that this insanity will backfire. Trump is gong to be able to keep his connection to the people, he’s gonna get a lot of stuff done, things are going to improve at home and abroad.

And It’ll be a long time before the Democrats recover, if they ever do. They might just disappear, and the Republicans split into two new parties, the Rockers and Mods.

If all that comes true, even I will start believing in my powers of prognostication.
