THAT leads to so rather disturbing questions. Like, “What the crap is the FBI doing?” and, “What does this tell us about January 6?” and, “Is anyone safe from the FBI?”
It’s impossible to overstate the significance of the verdicts handed down last week for four men charged with conspiring to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer in 2020 and use a “weapon of mass destruction” in the process.
… What the jury did agree on, however, is that the Federal Bureau of Investigation engaged in entrapment.
NOT just the House that will almost for sure flip!
I think that we have right now a chance for a renaissance. If there are significant numbers of “budget hawks” elected to the House and the Senate flips, we may see some actual progress. Not much, since Joe Biden or Kamala Harris would be President, but enough to at least stop the budget bleeding (though the actual curative and corrective treatment would have to wait for Trump and/or DeSantis in 2024).
We are now at crisis levels. Democrats blithely spend and spend, and all too often Republicans go along with it. With varying degrees of enthusiasm, yes, but they are willingly complicit.
It’s the classic “tragedy of the commons” studied in economics: ALL gains are personal, while the costs are spread out among us.
But the “tragedy” is indeed coming. It can’t NOT come. I have no faith at all that Democrats will ever reign in spending, and very little that Republicans will. These folks are focused on the short-term. But eventually, the long-term catches up!
It’s probably not quite too late right now. But the precipice is rapidly getting closer, and it is certainly in view right now. PUT ON THE BRAKES!
Oh, you can. But so far our politicians have no stomach for it! Especially the Left, but also many on the Right. But we better get a grip soon! Because if we don’t change soon, this will just end in bitter tears…
Avoidance and denial are simply not good strategies, here. And “Biden” is busy throwing gasoline on this fire!
is a great option. Maybe the best one. See, supposed “moderates” get exposed as mere mindless Lefty shills if it is DeSantis. DeSantis also doesn’t have the baggage Trump does–no matter how unfairly it was acquired.
Trump was a VERY good President, and was treated abysmally by the MSM. And he was flat-out cheated out of his second term. No question about ANY of that.
But DeSantis may well be the better option in 2024. He certainly doesn’t provoke the unhinged, knee-jerk, kooky opposition that Trump does. And while I can mock that opposition as incredibly moronic, it is nevertheless there and I still have to deal with it.
See, Leftists almost always can’t handle rational argument or disagreement. It has become part of the Lefty “Rules” to never leave the Lefty “Circle of Safety” and intellectually engage. Part of it is the intellectual weakness of their arguments. But a good deal of it is the overweening narcissism of most Leftists.
And this problem started with the bastardization of the self-esteem movement. Though THAT is an argument for another day…
It’s all feelings, and no facts. And since it’s hard to argue against feelings, Leftists never really have to defend or justify their ideas. YOU are just a jerk to try and argue with them! And what they do is therefore most often oblivious to facts and rationality.
So, for several important reasons Leftists don’t dare put their theories and beliefs on the line. There’s no more “Crossfire” for a reason! It’s much easier for them to pretend that they are persecuted and run off to some friendly, fetid Lefty fever swamp rather than engage in rational argument!
And therefore it is damning. ALL progress is stopped, which IS the definition of “damnation.” We can call it “Epistemological Closure” if we want to get all fancy-dancy, but it is more common to use the word, “damnation.” We think we know the answers so we are simply not willing to consider alternative explanations. THAT is Epistemological Closure.
And it’s both rigid and fragile. ANY contrary information threatens to bring down the whole house of cards! Because if I was wrong on THIS after being so cocksure of it, what else might I be wrong about?
