Stay with me here folks, this is important stuff. If you’re in one of those commie states that won’t let you carry a weapon, or if you just don’t like the idea of guns in general, your choices are fairly limited.
...what if we had governments coming up with the desired outcomes, behavioral scientists determining how to manipulate users into producing those outcomes, and game designers figuring out the best way to put those ideas into a game?
My stance has been that Donald Trump was tapped to do “something”. He wasn’t just lying on his gold gilded bed one night, having a glass of wine with his beautiful wife, and then “whammo! I know I’ll run for President!
And just to add extra salt to the wounds of those who are fighting for $15, those corporate mega-chains are increasingly turning to a 21st-century option for ridding themselves of the low-wage worker problem once-and-for-all: automation.
... why listen to the nattering nabobs of negativity out in the blogosphere with their endless litany of facts and details when we have the pronouncements of the Oracle in Washington herself to base our judgement on?
...do the powers that be “want” the market to go to 50K? What would be the point of that? few that I can really see. Sure, it will make the top 5% a whole lot of money, but for the tens of millions that don’t have any way to own stocks…it won’t do a thing for them.
...the real solution here, as always, is in our own hands. Unless and until the internet is "shut down" (which is not going to happen, at least not for good), it is essentially impossible for The Party to actually scrub alternative news and information from the web.
What about if a storm is predicted to bear down on your town? What do you do in the few days ahead? Well let me say it like this, if it’s Sandy size or Katrina size, none of this is going to matter much.
So have India and Pakistan turned a corner? Has China and its SCO partners found a way to bring these bitter enemies together in peace and harmony? Well, let's not get carried away here.
When does that stop? How does it stop? Does it have to stop? Logic says yes it will indeed end. But I’ll be damned if I know just how. We have already seen so many impossible things, that I can’t wait to see the next one. Get your popcorn and watch the show.
In reality, like any other geopolitical bombshell there may be one specific incident that sparks the powder keg,... but there are a number of different factors that compel each of the players at the table to act for their own interests.
My point is this folks. Predicting the future with any accuracy is a tough game even when you have rock solid, 100% true current information. Trying to do it while being lied to on just about every topic imaginable is a recipe for defeat.
Yes, the world is reaching a tipping point, but it has nothing to do with the trace amounts of life-giving carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Instead, the climate hoax itself is reaching a tipping point, the point at which the public stops listening to the apocalyptic predictions of the "End Is Nigh" crowd.
That crazy, creepy glowing orb. 1000 years from now it could very well be that the only thing the historians of the future remember about our era is that some group of dignitaries touched a glowing orb in a darkened room and the internet lost its collective mind.
The arguments will never end. Ever. All you can do is make up your own mind. For me it’s quite easy, I have the right gun, the right ammo, I train religiously, and I will indeed stop the threat. No need for cannons.
