“Gentlebeings, puh-leeuze!”

By now, we should all be conditioned to expect “Chicken Little.™”

“Yes, I really hate to say it, but ...” “We Americans, also,” need to acquaint ourselves with “elementary propaganda techniques.”

It goes like this:
  • “The case at bar,” whatever it may be, “really is The End Of The World As We Know It.™”
  • Yessirree!   “An innocent person, his heart as virgin as the newborn snow,” was surely brutalized by The Establishment – yes, for no other reason than he was Virginal and Innocent.   (Of course, the brutal thugs law-enforcement officers in question have nothing of value to say, since they are merely Stooges For The Establishment.™)
  • Therefore, there is no rational decision to make here!   “Hurry up!   Hurry up!”
  • After all ... (of course) ... “Our Sworn Enemies” (whoever they might be ...) “are gathered around us ... sothere’s not a moment to decide lose!”
  • Therefore, “you have absolutely no choice but to” put your head between your legs and kiss your a*s g'bye “react like we tell you to do.”

“Eyes Wide Open, (Ladies And ...) Gentlemen!”  

Hate to say it, folks, but ... “everyone (else) also(!) supposed that they could never be Cravenly Manipulated ...”

Become a skeptical(!) consumer of media!   (No matter what URL it comes from ...)

Although I am also vigorously opposed to piping dangerous products “from Canada to Texas” only(!) so that “they $$ can $$ be $$ refined $$ in $$ Texas,” I personally think that “84 gallons” could easily be attributed to “one bolt that wasn’t tightened quite-enough.”

To my way of thinking, we more-or-less have exactly two credible options before us:
  • The way that, for the past fifty years or so, we have been going ... or ...
  • Something Different.™
Again, “to my way of thinking,” the American Public very-decisively indicated that they did not(!) want “business as usual.™”

And, in specific fulfillment of that end, they did something that The American Nation™ had never done before:   they elected a Chief Executive Officer who was neither “a professional politician” nor “a retired General.”

Indeed, they hired an individual who is unlike each-and-every Officeholder who has ever(!!), in the entire(!) history of the Republic, preceded him!

They hired someone who – like his father and his grandfather before him – cut his teeth on "high-stakes negotiations."   (Which, I fairly guarantee you, is neither “a thing that Washington, DC understands,” nor “a thing that Washington, DC is anxious to [be forced to ...] learn.” )

However, I suspect that this is precisely what the voters intended to impose upon their leaders.

Quite frankly, even though I suspect that The American Nation™ (of course, of course ...) could not quite possibly know in-advance just what they had done, I really do think that “they did it on purpose.”   In doing so, I think that they might well have taken the most radical step that they have taken since The Revolution.   (What an utterly American™ thing for them to have done!)

“What will come of it?”   Only History will tell.

“Hang on!   It is happening(!), right before your [disbelieving] eyes!”

“This is not a drill!”   Repeat: “This is not a drill!”
