Or is everybody stoned?  

 

 

This is not a criticism of any particular political position. The question, “is the whole world insane,” is a serious and relevant question. Consider this.

 

The world is consumed with Global Warming rhetoric.

 

But here’s something you may not know. There isn’t a serious scientist anywhere on the planet that believes we can cut CO2 emissions. In fact, it’s so loony that a person would have to be mentally ill to believe it. Even the most aggressive scientists only believe we may be able to slow the acceleration.

 

This isn’t the only reason the world may be insane. Consider the rush to fantasy.

 

The top 10 movies in the world last year, and in the last few years have been either superhero fantasies or cartoons. The “gaming” industry has exploded, and these games are not being marketed to children.

 

Millions of grown men are “playing army” in the basements, equipped with toy guns and helmets, seemingly unaware that real men are fighting real wars with real guns.

 

Then there’s politics, the real-world insanity.

 

Half the countries in the world have not balanced a budget in decades. The US buys almost $1 trillion dollars-worth of foreign goods per year that they don’t pay for. There is $1.5 trillion in college loans out there, $300 billion of which is in technical default. A large percentage of this debt is owed by people over the age of 50.

 

Another sign of the world being insane is doggie dress-up.

 

Grown men and women are dressing their dogs up and acting as if their dogs are children! They wear bonnets and booty’s, and some are pulled in wagons and strollers! Most breeding agencies are apoplectic about this. Dogs are not babies, but they’re purposely being bred to act like them.

 

And the insanity of doggie dress-up is carried to other species.

 

People are hugging lions. (And some are being mauled) One man was eaten by a grisly bear, seemingly unaware that they’re carnivores. People think bird’s mothers teach them to fly! Increasingly, people are giving carnivorous animals VEGAN DIETS.

 

Significant percentages of the population do not know what a farm is.

 

In one “innovation center”, I saw an invention that was marketed as a new technology. It was a tomato seedling in about an inch of soil with a grow light over it. The “inventor” didn’t know tomato plants grow more than 3 inches tall. People confuse farms with gardens. They can’t distinguish straw from hay. They don’t know that organic farms use pesticides and fertilizer. They think chemically ripened vegetables are “fresh” and don’t realize that the function of the small intestine is to digest meat.

 

At least once every two days I get an email political donation request. This is pure insanity.

 

Every one lists as its top campaign issue either same sex marriage, LGBT rights or abortion.

 

We live in a country that is currently involved in 4 major wars and a dozen skirmishes, we haven’t balanced a budget in 30 years, our balance of trade is comical, our streets are rife with crime, 17 million college students can’t get a job that pays enough to finance their debt and our biggest problem is where 1% of the population sticks their dick!

 

If this isn’t insanity, what is?

 

Notes: In a later post, I’ll relate studies that show how diet and education play a role in advancing insanity.

 

 

 

 

With another “delay” in the Brexit vote, the question “should the US recognize England’s government” is a valid question.

 

Should the US recognize any European government? Let’s look at it purely from an American perspective.

 

 

1) The governing body of the EU is non-elected.

2) Europe refuses to pay for the defense of its own borders.

3) Europe refuses to defend it’s borders which will mean that responsibility will fall, as in did in WW1 and WW2 to the USA.

4) Few if any European government has a majority and many, like Belgium, France and England clearly do not govern with the will of a majority of the people.

 

 

It is not America’s responsibility to defend governments run by bankers, or to defend their shipping lanes, their currency or their copywrite laws. In fact, the US is bound to reject the rule of elitists, monarchs and corporate cartels.

 

 

The very existence of the EU is to go against American hegemony.

 

If this is Europe’s decision, it’s their problem. For almost 100 years the US has been bailing these countries out, feeding them, settling their war, defending them and giving them a place to sell their products.

 

In return, they refuse to welcome our President into their countries.

 

Starting in 2021, Americans will need visas to enter EU countries. This is our cue. We have a half million men buried in European graveyards, but we’ll need a visa to go to countries that Romanians, Poles and Bulgarians can waltz into.

 

Is it time to say goodbye?

 

Should we start with England? Should the US recognize the government of England, when England rejects the will of it’s pown people?

 

This is the main reason why I mentioned in my novels that the US and Europe will legalize drug use. Stoned voters don’t care. The Cartels run the world and always have. 

 

 

 

Probably no story ever written explains the current state of affairs in England better than Dickens, “Bleak House.”

 

To summarize, Bleak House is the story of a man (Jarndyce) who dies having left two wills. It portrays the English court system as a cluster fuck of over regulation, absurd laws, and crooked lawyers.

 

The current arguments over Brexit are as Dickensian as they come.

 

The English people clearly want their country back, or at least, what they think their country is. Having been fed a continuous line of bullshit about “empire” and an endless parade of royals, they believe they should go it on their own.

Maybe they can and maybe they can’t.

 

Though one thing is certain. They’re not happy with the endless parade of foreigners that are getting residence in England. London has a Muslim mayor and only 45% of the population is English.

 

One of the central themes to Bleak House is the inability of the arrogant, rhetoric addicted Brits to come to a decision.

 

 

This has been true of England for 100 years. All the while Churchill babbled on about persevering, they were being chucked out of Singapore, India, France and voluntarily leaving Australia and Canada. Now they are cornered. The people want to be English, but the hedge fund loving Theresa May and the rest of their will vote for money house of commons will have none of it.

 

Dickens was, arguably, the best British author of his time.

 

Some would argue the greatest of all time. But like many great Brits, he knew hardship. His father, forced into debtor’s prison due to profligate spending, would be perfectly described in another Dickens masterpiece, “Little Dorrit.” In it, he again describes the absurd British legal system, it’s arrogant leaders seemingly never growing tired of listening to their own voices.

 

I’ve always thought that the British felt a life constantly talked about, overanalyzed, criticized and finally yearned for was not worth living. Brexit is that in spades.

 

The question for England though is not whether they can make a break, but whether they can survive one. This isn’t 1825 and their navy doesn’t rule the seas. A free and independent England is a very small country.

 

In both Bleak House and Little Dorrit, the heroine finds love and riches in the end.

 

England should be so lucky.

 

 

Notes on Bleak House and Little Dorrit.

 

Both series have been produced masterfully in Andrew Davies adaptation of the novels for BBC. It’s hard to imagine script writing and character development better than what Davies produced.

 

 

The acting is also incredible. You’ll recognize several of the actors from popular series like Pride and Prejudice, Endeavor, The Secret Garden and the US PBC production of Les Miserabe’. There are too many to name individually.

 

One can only wonder.

 

 

 

 

 

Is there any other entertainment outlet as absurdly run? In a span of one week, the NFL allowed three of its most recognizable stars to go into witness protection.

 

Sending Antonio Brown to the Raiders is, from an advertising perspective, like asking George Clooney to wear a sign and stand in front of a hot dog stand.

 

Of course, the Raiders are scheduled to play in Las Vegas in 2020, which will give Brown just enough time to demand a trade.

 

That said, nothing compares to sending Odell Beckham to Cleveland. What’s next, Brady to the Bills? If the Raiders are witness protection, the Browns are like being incarcerated.

 

In light of this, we have Le’veon Bell going to the Jets. The last time the Jets had a watchable football team the minimum wage was $1.85 an hour, Lyndon Johnson was president and people were bragging about those newfangled color television sets.

 

Every year, the NFL has a draft, and Bill Belichick insures none of this “talent” will ever play in the Superbowl.

 

The NFL is so screwed up that to ensure your team might have a good year, you have to guarantee they’ll have five bad ones. Look at the Buffalo Bills. After paying their big-time defensive tackle $100 million he came in the next season, basically retired. Sixty pounds overweight, he was so fat he had to special order a $3,000 toilet.

 

Welcome to money ball, a game that people watch but can’t tell you why.

 

I’d feel bad for Goodell. Somehow that $25 million annual salary makes it difficult.

The Democrats are shooting themselves in the foot.
