arrogance, dogma, ignorance …

I feared using this title again, first used and quoting the late Jacob Bronowski a video clip embedded here a few months ago. Yet silly pipsqueaks from their trashy world have shamed themselves in their arrogance, dogma and ignorance.

With those MAGA hats I think this was a put-up job, the young men themselves allowing themselves to be ‘led on’ exactly as what happened in 1930’s Germany with Hitler Youth, 1960’s China with licensed vandals ie Red Guards. There was always a conscious brand identity and gang mentality to reinforce their stupidity, their arrogance, dogma and ignorance.

Why do people not strive to learn, to study, to do better, to live a cleaner life?  Is modern life so trashy they cannot understand or respect the life trials of others?  Skill, the ability to undertake a less than easy task is so very undervalued and increasingly pointless by swathes of society. As if clicking a few keys is seen as an achievement !

Its so sad accumulated history and experience seems to be near absent; as a sick joke from ‘above’ that mankind will always struggle to make a good job of itself. My commiseration to the venerable tribal elder.

trump has rendered viable the worst in human nature. He is much cleverer than he seems, much more intuitive and street savvy (and nasty). Realise his affiliation and adoration of Roy Cohn. Just as with Hitler and Mao with his ‘Red Guards’ he gives license to reckless vandals and thugs.

Another example … I  have new neighbours in rented property  next door and they too are proving themselves to be trashy ie front lawn increasingly messy, utterly no connection with the soil or making an effort, garden spiralling downhill, trashy limited so-called lives begetting more of the same ad infinitum. I know lots, can help them, have made effort to connect, nope they will see me as anachronistic, just an old man next door. How misinformed they are!!! We are seeing the product of four generations of tv and of a web centred life with little beyond. Tut tut.

 

postscript … Heres my original post utilising the words of Jacob Bronowski as the title. Never more have these words and such insight of Dr Bronowski been more vital in trying to see truth and morality in the dark times of the conman trump and his accomplices in their denial of truth, the facts, democracy, equality and equal rights for everyone.

f … for Fake ?

I started a facebook account a few days ago (which I have mothballed) and already knew it was a jumble of nonsense as any form of blogging platform; the local tie-in unwanted was an irritation as were ads which screamed ‘fake’.

An hour or more of my life wasted. Compounded by several logins foiled and insisting on a pic of myself log in after log in.  Needless to say it was a random piece of junk submitted.

But ….WTF !

facebook is a crappy cluttered trivial to extreme piece of junk. Yet think of all the lovely analytics it provides. Quite obscene. Life was never meant for such up the arse triviality called facebook. Or surveillence called facebook.

My reason for this post is the irony of trump endlessly hurling the insult FAKE to the Free Press ie journalists of acumen and hard effort yet when it comes to the fakery and nonsense of facebookhis little helper to election – he is silent. We can now see the extent of Russian manipulation via facebook. I’m sorry to say that I don’t hold Zuckerberg in any positive esteem.

 

 

Essential listening…

This is a good vid, straight into the nitty gritty … the stupidity of trump, the urgency of climate change, the arrogance and blind refusal of the GOP to accept climate change being real and the problem is here right now … notice Noam Chomsky tells us of the obscene roll-back of USA Emmisions Laws … they admit they don’t care and it ‘doesn’t matter’ ….. the bar is set so low now that people are limboing in the mud itself.

 

This woman will be President …

If we are all still here and not drowned in the mental impairement of oxygen deprivation then i think and quite hope Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would make a fine n dandy POTUS.

We need vigour, morality, an excitement to work … all things that our Fox grazing present incumbent does not hold, I mean the excrement known as trump.

 

Quite how bad trump actually is …

Some links here to shed light on the nastiness of trump.

Boy-o-boy is he crooked and utterly without any shred of virtue, morals, or upright  ethics whatever.

Postscript ….

I knew someone that so much seemed like trump, in the early / mid 1970’s. He too was a total bullshitter, fantasy out on a limb.

https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/84273524/posts/2135583424

Its proven now beyond a doubt that the insults that trump hurls are in fact most applicable to himself. Fake being the first to spring to mind. Its shambolic beyond belief that with so much inherited wealth he for decades has limped on under so much debt, lies, covert tactics, and multiple bankruptcies. Ringing newspapers under a phoney name to brag and exaggerrate his wealth and equally phoney business acumen is indeed the work of a backward deluded individual.

Overnight here in the UK we learn trump grossed out on filling a huge table with fast food for the visit of winning athletes. They should have boycotted the offered fare, touched nothing, after all …. they are athletes!  I see the table of fast food strangely promoted as ‘American’ to be nothing more than a veiled insult. Maybe ivanka and / or jared colluding on this quite sick manouvre.  As we know now western advantaged diets need to steer clear of beef, the carbon cost of such food material is quite dreadful. A term I’ve just coined is  WISE UP – CARBON DOWN !! …..rather nifty I think.

 

 

 

Comparing what trump says to reality …

Theres nothing clever about what I’m posting here, its for anyone that cares to read it, easily found,  primarily tonight its for me to see what are the facts as compared to the jumble of nonsense that emanates from the White House ie a few hours before the tv speech to the Nation. donalds words are not merely nonsense but hard clever spin to work a dark magic, a nasty magic. It is indeed a sad retrograde world we live in, or more exactly a retrograde White House that journalists continually have to fact check anything with a trump tag attached and continually every time find the BS has to be corrected. Yet the Chief Spewer of Misinformation as is typical of the present time is in fact a total fake, an insult he prefers to lobb at the Free Press when in fact he is the guilty culprit.

Nice reading, aligns the facts, injects some reality …

https://edition.cnn.com/politics/live-news/trump-speech-shutdown-border/index.html

Deeply misleading is a term used further down the page at CNN re the misinformation being promoted from no. 1600 ….  yes trump and Pence can certainly be guilty of that; continually and with vigour.

 

 

Postscript a day later; I find it hard to believe there are people still hanging around to be part of the nonsense trump White House. Last nights broadcast to the Nation was a web of lies and mis-truth, thank goodness for the journalists to check all this.  For someone supposedly ‘so adept’ (NO) at tv…  donalds chat must have appeared as the most crass stilted moronic item of propaganda conceivable. I feel sorry for  impressionable old folk, dementia patients etc that now must be haunted by crazed hammer wielding fiends from across the border. I think however the real threat as always an inversion of what he says is in fact donald himself. Without any shred of doubt we can now see ‘wheres he’s coming from’ …..

Thers lots of border wall already for two legged hammer weilding assailants, sufficient. But surely donalds forgotten the airports, lorries, cargo, containers, freight?

Light relief … heres donald signing blank paper …. https://www.businessinsider.com/trump-might-have-tweeted-a-photo-of-himself-signing-a-blank-bill-government-shutdown-2018-12?r=US&IR=T

Michael Moore ….

This must be a worthwhile interview as it had me interested 100%, often my mind gets sidetracked (I can no way watch a full length film or even desire to do so these last thirty years) but for this I’m tuned in no problem. Its difficult to find anyone these days  that can put words together work with mallaeable viewpoints and not arrive arrive already pre-conditoned and so very set in their ways from whatever, from Fox. Thinking seems to be very much out of fashion; out in the world in my little chance encounters theres seemingly no discussion, its merely people embedding themselves in ‘camps’, its all pre-set;  even on subject matter that they would struggle with if having to speak on the matter for more than a couple of minutes.  Increasingly peoples views are based on a varnish thin information pool…. trump realises this.
