Chronicling the End of the World as Insurrectionists Snatch the Reins of Power from Pelosi's Octogenarian Hands

I been surprised at the political commentary I been hearing .. which paints the insurrectionist party snatching power away from Nancy Pelosi and the democrats ..

.. as some sort of political hail mary come true.

Give me a break. Give me a break from the spin. From the cyclone-class spin.

» These Aren't Normal Times, Far from It

In order to make their bizarre point seem credible, they reference historical data.

But these are not normal times. You can't reference normal shit because this as far from democratic norms as you can get.

Did you forget January 6th already?

MAGA flag and Jolly Roger waving beside makeshift gallows, complete with hangman's noose and stairs leading up to the hanging platform, during the sacking and plunder of US Capitol by Trump supporters on 6 Jan 2021

It's like they are missing the whole point in an attempt to focus on the spin. It makes me feel sad for the prospects of our nation.

This is like losing to the worst football team in history. This is like getting out-foxed by the Keystone Cops. It's as far from a political miracle as you can get.

» Politically Malignant

Because this isn't your parent's Republican party, no. This thing has turned malignant.

Kevin McCarthy meets with Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida on 28 Jan 2021

This has catastrophe written all over it.

I must admit, that is some serious spin going on here. These political types spend their whole life spinning a pile of shit for us-the-people in to some sort of so called miracle outcome.

But it's not. It's not a miracle outcome. Losing political power to a proudly insurrectionist party is no political miracle.

Far from it. But you spin-folks in the media are certainly earning your keep.

They are doing America no favors. I have already called them out for the way they try to paint popular things as extreme, and extreme things are popular. It is intentionally designed to be deceptive.

I mean, that's what they get paid to do. That's why they get the big bucks.

» I'd Rather be Flirting with an Industrial-Strength Talent

I don't even like politics because it is a realm inhabited my some nasty fuckers. Ugly nasty fuckers. Morally and socially nasty. Beyond ruthless. They invest their entire soul into clawing their way up an elusive ladder.

I would much rather be flirting with an industrial-strength talent, upping my game as I go.

I can hear a voice back there saying, "The sooner we finish this thing, the sooner we can get back to flirting with you-know-who."

I don't do it intentionally, but when I write these kinds of entries like I am writing today, I often have waiting in the wings an industrial-strength talent. One who inspires me and challenges me to up my game.

These types of entries can be so ugly, so I need to balance it out with something of an opposite force. The sweet respite.

In this way, I can feel my writing playing off of them. There is a reference-checking thing that happens. Where you are sort of feeling them (over there) for a span while you are doing this other thing (over here).

I admit it sounds nutso. It sounds nutso to me, too. But I am feeling it.

» There's Nothing Like Getting Quantumly Entangled with a Beautiful Creature

It reminds me of what those physicists were saying about quantum entanglement. There have been a number of excellent videos released. With great, historical footage.

I have seen a number of them. My IQ feels 10 points higher after watching one.

  1. Einstein and the Quantum: Entanglement and Emergence by World Science Festival
  2. Quantum Entanglement: Spooky Action at a Distance by Fermilab
  3. Einstein's Quantum Riddle by PBS Nova

I mean, if I'm going to get quantumly entangled with a beautiful creature, then I will need to understand the physics behind it. Right?

» This Can't be Good for America

But things have gone so far off the rails that I feel compelled to speak out. It feels like my civic duty to say that this is a steaming pile of political excrement and I do not agree with the prevailing political commentary.

No, sir. Not even a little. Should I elaborate? Should I elaborate on those octogenarian hands? You know the ones I'm talking about.

» The Fatal Flaw of the Silent Generation

She has the same fatal flaw that afflicts the rest of her generation. The Silent Generation.

Graphic of generational timelines for the Western world

She has shitty values. She has the kind of values that prioritizes the wrong things.

There is a reason, you know, why the Silent generation is called the silent generation.

I digress. My point is simply to say that .. at the end of the day, after all the political spin machines have stopped twirling, the existential fact nonetheless remains ..

.. that an insurrectionist party has managed to snatch away the reins of power from Nancy Pelosi and the democrats. It is a self-evident fact.

» America Needs and Deserves Hands that are More Vigorous and Capable to Help Better Protect the Constitution

The fact that her hands happen to be octogenarian hands is also a data point that you will find hard to dispute. I'm just stating the obvious.

This is me in existential mode. "What is my national existential reality? And what is it saying?"

I know that people cry ageism when you say things like this. But the consequences of not saying something far outweighs any squabbles or protests they might conjure.

Should we have octogenarians sitting in key places of power? I am talking about key positions where we need the strength and the mental acuity that you are not going to find in an 82 year old human being.

Such key positions obviously require someone with vision for the future. You are not going to find, I would argue, any kind of vision for the future from an octogenarian.

Nature and genetics is not going to give an octogenarian what they need to develop a vision for the future .. because their time is done. They are at the end of their life.

They are fortunate just to be alive at this age. Many Americans don't make it to their 80th birthday.

Such key, important positions require and deserve better.

» Pelosi Seems More Concerned About Protecting the Ability of Members of Congress to Trade Stocks Based On Private Insider Conversations They Hold as Our Representatives than She is About Protecting and Defending Either the Constitution or the Planet

Would it be wrong to say that one of the key items on her agenda has been ..

.. to protect the ability of members of congress and their families to trade stocks based on secret, inside, non-public information?

I am talking about private, inside information that they actually have a hand in crafting and in helping to get passed?

I am talking about, you know, the Nancy Pelosi concept of a free market. You must admit that this was very telling for her to say this. This said a lot about her.

Nobody made her say this. She came up with it all on her own. At least, give her the credit that she deserves for declaring it so publicly like that.

Her protectors ran to protect her and say that she didn't really mean it. But she did. She totally meant it when she said. She has said shit like this on multiple occasions.

This is why no bill passes. Because of her.

While the Constitution was being shredded and the planet was being polluted by fossil fuels beyond repair, Nancy seemed more concerned about protecting the ability of congress to trade stocks based on insider information ..

.. than she was about protecting and defending either the Constitution or the planet.

I will ask again. Would it be wrong to say this about her and her legislative priorities? Would it be wrong to say that this has been one of her key priorities?

I don't think so. I don't think it would be wrong to say this about her.

» This has Catastrophe Written All Over It

But that's all water under the bridge now. Because the insurrectionists have snatched away the reins of power.

This has catastrophe written all over it.

» Somebody Please Give My Regards to Jimmy Carter

I can't help but wonder how Jimmy Carter has been feeling lately. Somebody please give him my regards if you happen to run into him.

He was a reactor plant boy back in the day, splitting atoms and turning matter into energy.

You can feel the power when the plant is operating. You can feel it vibrating and hear it roaring .. even with the earplugs in and the headphones on over them.

I love that kind of thing. The feel of roaring power in the palm of your hand. Skillfully operated reactor plants. By well-trained plant operators. (Probably over-trained.)

Tell him I have a feeling about 2023. Maybe it means nothing. Just a hunch.

» Time Check

I wonder what time it is right now. I'm-a go check real quick. Be right back.

Timestamp Worldclock Wednesday 11 January 2023 at 1:11 am San Diego

Look at that. It's already after midnight. No wonder I'm starting to get tired. I should finish this later today.

This is not the funnest stuff to write. People shittin' on democracy and on the planet. It's sad.

There is an existential aspect, you know, to these timestamps. It is a graphic record that I was here at this time.

I can't grab a timestamp of some future date because the future hasn't arrived yet. But once it arrives, then I can.

If this sounds crazy, then I could certainly understand that. Sometimes we do things that might fall under the heading of 'Quirks.' Quirks aren't about making sense.
