Why Should Trump be Impeached?   (2017Dec06)

Well, it’s been so long—take your pick:

  • He has sixteen (16!) accusers of sexually repugnant behavior—and his taped confession of his habitual misbehavior in that regard.
  • He has made bigoted remarks, excused white-nationalist neo-nazis, and insulted Mexicans, Native-Americans, African-Americans, Muslims, Jews, Puerto Ricans, Women, and the handicapped—he hasn’t missed a trick—he even supports Confederate statues.
  • He has endangered the country by acting as if diplomacy was some child’s game—as if he could just play around with nations in the same way he played around with his sub-contractors, partners, and customers—as a businessman (and I use the term loosely, for brevity’s sake).
  • He has destroyed the State Department’s depth of field and its ability to serve an actual president—one who knows its importance in effecting international influence and power. His cabinet is a reverse-image of the competent, engaged people one might hope would fill these appointments. They are, to a person, industry shills who’ve dreamed of erasing the very agencies they’ve been put in charge of—for mere profit, and against the best interests of the people. Go to him—utter the phrase “best interests of the people”—listen to him laugh.
  • Even if he is not a Russian agent working against our best national interests, he certainly acts like one. Look at the tax bill.
  • His ignorance of—or perhaps actual enmity towards—the ideals that form the bedrock of true American values—may be because he was raised by a clansman, or because his wealth deludes him into dreams of upper-classiness, or it may be a simple blend of ignorance and egotism—regardless, he represents much of what America has always stood against, in our hearts.
  • If the above is insufficient, consider how stupid he is, how greedy he is, and how petty he is—he clearly shouldn’t be in charge of anything, much less…
  • Ask Meuller.

Have you seen the cable news channels today? Just a stream of word salad. They take every Trump tweet or statement at face value, then create a Gordian Knot of ‘perhapses’ based on the blind assumption that a president who always lies should still be given the benefit of the doubt with each new lie, until it can be disproven.

As the noose tightens around his earlier lies, Trump issues revised lies. Just as a hacker’s ‘Denial Of Service’ attack keeps a system paralyzed by sending it too many messages at once, Trump’s DOS attack keeps so many lies being reported, we can’t stop to seriously examine any one of them.

We are now, though, reaching new heights of byzantine ass-covering, and new lows of ludicrous point-stretching—something we can all recognize, because you never see that behavior in the pure of heart or the clear of conscience.

Not Very Worried   (2017Dec02)

We need to get back to a practical attitude about truth. Yes, truth can be debated—but it can be debated beyond the point of meaning, as well. We can debate whether a dawn with snow on the ground is proof of an overnight snowfall—but when the debate is over, someone still needs to plow the driveway.

Likewise, we don’t really know much about the nature of electromagnetism—nevertheless, an electrician can tell you, with absolute precision, whether a certain circuit-diagram will power your new home—or burn it to the ground. Doubt-mongers can honestly say that humanity knows very little about the full nature of electricity—while they sit in a house with a generous supply of safe, handy three-prong outlets, charging multiple devices while making toast.

I’d prefer not to get sidetracked just now, talking about the dramatic back-and-forths of politics and media. The most important thing about the truth isn’t ‘fake news’—it is in how we perceive our world, ourselves, and our place in it. After all, it is ‘We, the people’. Neither politicians nor talking heads can brainwash any of us, unless we let them, plopping ourselves down in front of a screen and swallowing every word we hear. If nothing else, we should be given pause—and more than pause, by the fact that some news outlets tell different stories.

That creates an environment where some outlet or outlets indeed must be selling psy-prop fake-news BS—and because of Freedom of Speech, the government can’t decide for us which media outlets are at fault. We have to use our personal judgement now—more than ever before. We must be leery—we must be suspicious—we know now that there are groups out there, working at the new profession of cultural corrosion by misinformation.

And when we look for an enemy, we shouldn’t allow Russia alone to fill our binoculars. In many ways, modern Russia is just a subset of the super-wealthy of Capitalism—Putin and all those oligarchs are just the foreign version of our own fat cats, Trump included. America is the Capitalist’s target because its riches only have one drawback—those pesky peasants, still thinking they have freedom—no matter how much they’re overworked in their cubicles or starved in unemployment.

So Trump helps Putin, just like all fat pigs help each other, all around the world—not very worried that the rest of us might wake up some day. He attacks our rights and freedoms, because those are obstacles to commerce and control. He stands for commerce and control because he is jealous of Putin, Duterte, and Assad. He whines, “Why can’t I shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue? They can!”

I don’t care about the legalities anymore—I am long past caring who said what to whom. All I know, for an absolute fact, is that Trump is an enemy of the United States of America, as much as an enemy of the Truth—yet it is against the law for me to suggest what I’d like to see happen to him.
