The Deep State AI Black Hole Challenge

Many of us live in a fascist society. Note I did not say the government is fascist, it is not. Not yet anyway. However large portions of our society is. There is only one political belief for those that watch exclusively CNN, MSNBC. Read the New Yorker, or the New York Times and the Washington Post. Or listen to NPR or any of the Hollywood elite.

So do you believe in the Deep State? Non-elected members of the tribe described above that believe the ends justify the means to mandate compliance with, well shall I say their agenda.

Artificial intelligence is one way of mandating compliance. Words and phrases can trigger elimination from discourse. It is quite common actually. It is not considered actual censure because those that own servers have the right, or some say the responsibility to “edit” content. It really quite a simple way to censure thoughts. Information that is contrary to approved “thought” is simply not published.

Some time ago I questioned the green credibility of diesel engines in a Wall Street Journal forum. My thoughts were disallowed, I tried to rewrite my statement several ways. I finally settled with a “watered down” version. It was my first encounter with the AI censors. I was quite perplexed.

What I write in this blog, whether it makes any sense or not, simply disappears. The same thing seems to happen to many people. Contrary thought simply disappears into a great artificial intelligence black hole.

Maybe the writing comes out on some unknown other side. I don’t know? To give credit to where credit is due, artificial intelligence makes it easy for me to write. However I did not realize that I was not allowed to have independent thoughts.

I see people have methods to beat the AI censor. They will misspell words, or leave them out and let the reader infer the words. True there are probably bad words that should not be used. There are words that I normally do not use. However that is my choice. Yes, my words have been disallowed. Simple words that ment no harm. They just question populist thought. Yet they are disallowed.

Really, I do not know what the answer is. However the AI censor is a challenge to free speech. Especially when the rules are not published. An unseen censure unconstrained by transparency is a recipe for darkness. It is a censure that happens more often than most people think.

The Funeral Pyre

Seems Big Forked Tongue Chief Liz set her wigwam ablaze. Purely accidental I presume, intelligent people do not normally go around and self immolate.

Before anyone takes me literally, I would like to emphatically state that I am speaking in figurative hyperbole. I wish no harm to anyone or anything. Sadly when I self identify as a Trump supporting Republican half the population believes that, well I wouldn’t want to repeat the words, but let my kindly say that I am simply deplorable, and probably worse. Maybe they are right. However I mean no harm when I make fun of what I thought would be the leading candidate for their party. Or should I say, Tribe (Grin).

That is what this little blog is about, political discourse, and my belittled opinion. Yet my opinion prevails. Disagree if you must. With the New Hampshire primary a month away opinion is heating up. My opinion is get ready for the funeral pyre. The party of the tribe will self immolate, taking with it many sacred cows. One again, I mean no harm to any cow, sacred or otherwise. However, for many there will be wrenching change to hallowed beliefs. Simple because the great tribe of promises has promised so much to so many. Then in failure they blame, me, each other, then ultimately you.

My suggestion, take any darkness you may harbour and toss it into the pyre. For tomorrow the sun will rise, the sky will be blue, the birds will sing. Rejoice for we are self aware. Do not let the tribe control your minds, thoughts, and emotion. Think of what is best your family, community, nation and the world. For the pyre by its nature is the act of renewal, from darkness comes light. Let its glow warm the soul.

In Praise of Gold

Yes, Donald J Trump likes gold. ¿Why? My guess, gold does not tarnish fade or rust. Additionally it can be worked to add vaule. So as a business man, Donald J Trump most likely expects a return on his investment in gold.

Then it could be simply, The Golden Rule.

Andrew Yang

I recently had a conversation with a coworker whom I will describe as a NPR liberal. She is extremely smart and I respect her immensely. Like most liberals she seems appalled that I support President Trump. Supporting President Trump is not something that should be done where I work.

Actually I do not have many political conversations, I do not try to will my beliefs on others. However I will defend the President if he is attacked. I also defended President Obama on more than one occasion when he was president. However I would also criticize him too.

My coworker, with whom I agree with ninety eight percent of the time, was willing to listen to my opinion. For that I thank her.

She is willing to publicly admit that she gets her news from NPR. I told her that I used to get my news from NPR, CNN, and MSNBC exclusively. Now I don’t listen to them at all. I feel that strongly about it. Actually, truth be told I do occasionally check them out as a matter of opposition research. But really, I now consider them to be part of the fascist estate.

I did not mention the reason why I no longer listen to them, but it is rather simple. The networks had agreed that candidate Trump appealed to older white middle class working people. Who was I to disagree? I checked Candidate Trump out, then got on his bandwagon. All was good, for a while. As Trump began winning I was told that I was no longer a older white middle class working man. I was now a racist, fascist, nazi. Moreover they advocated hurting me. These things were self evident in real life!

I did mention that I put up Trump signs and people would steel them as fast as we could put them up. When we complained to the paper they wrote a completely different story. I also mentioned that someone tried to run me off the road.

Then I mentioned that I went to two Trump rallies, and he talked about a Big Beautiful Gate, something that you did not hear about.

She said that she liked the policies of candidate Andrew Yang. I probably made a face, because she quickly added that he would probably not win. I will have to say there is a couple of good points about Yang. First he has not drunk the hate Trump Kool-Aid, secondly he says to build on what we have. The Freedom Dividend of whatever he calls the free money could be open for more debate. Anyway a thoughtful choice on her part.

Then I mentioned why I think “they” are the way they are. Unions. She became defensive and said that the unions have been good to us. I then mentioned that WMUR had hosted a presidential debate, and had not been allowed to ask a question. The reason was because one of their weather people was not a member of a union.

It was a good time to stop the conversation, we parted friends.

Merry Christmas

I Agree With AOC

“What we’re living in right now is not an advanced society.”

“It is fascism, what we have, what we’re evolving into, as well.”

Sadly those were the words of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as she described our country while she campaigned with presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. I wholeheartedly agree with that description of her world. I most fortunately live in a different world.

I am reasonably confident that her world will collapse at the ballot box. At least I hope so,  as I rather like my world.

Impeachment Logic

Watching the impeachment saga plays out in the most improbable way I see a certain crystalline clarity to the logic of the impeachment proceedings.

Like cut Waterford Crystal held up to the light there can be a sparkling brilliance to be seen. For the motivations are as old as recorded time itself. Michael Bloomberg (who also happens to be running for president) pledged 10 million dollars for the reelection campaigns of those who vote for impeachment. The deed has now been done, for the money. Never mind what happens next. It is no different than the worlds oldest profession.

Of course they wanted to vote to impeach anyway, I am sure the money just made the vote that much sweeter. Plus the money added a certain amount of justification to something that was not quite really legally justifiable.

Impeachment, held up with a sparkling light, illuminates, darkness.

Don’t Be A Pink Hatted Fascist

I am serious about this. I may say, and listen to lots of silly things. However I am completely perplexed by the given logic of impeachment. Listening to Adam Schiff I hear nothing except a long string of serious sounding words. In his words I see no logic. All I see is hate dressed up in fancy words.

Yet a hundred million people believe they understand and should act on Schiff’s words. They might as well be wearing pink hats with snowflake armbands. Individually they are likely very nice people. Yet together, there is a destructive solidarity. Thoughts are frozen,  freedom of speech is prohibited.

Pink Hatted Fascism is a double edged sword. The red MAGA hat will eventually fade to pink. Live by the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do to you.

I was just thinking, a golden hat would never fade.
