Mirror Mirror

I frequently reflect on political views. If the poles are to be believed, for every person that supports President Trump, there is one that thinks he should be immediately be removed from office. There may be a balance there, however it is like none that I have seen before. Usually a pole will ask if you agree or disagree with policies. Fare enough.

We have long gone past the point of discourse, however when prodded I will declare my beliefs. Mostly I just write here, as discourse is not encouraged. Instead the other side advocates intervention. Or rejection. These are my thoughts, my intention is enlightenment.

It takes a lot to take the time to be objective. Usually there are just a few sound bites used to justify an opinion. I find it strange that people of the other side, even through they do not know each other, will repeat the same sound bite. Usually one that is not true. For example, Obama made the economy better.

President Trump is in a very strong position for the next election. Comparatively all other candidates are rather weak. Yet to listen to the media, a completely different narrative is told. Fortunately there is now alternative media coverage if a person was to look around. Objective and calm alternatives to the hyper obsessive mainstream.

In my view, the mainstream is in a panic. The elections are arriving, and they will spell the ultimate doom to their party. In a panic they repeat the same fabrications as they circle like a reindeer cyclone.

Actually a reindeer cyclone is a rather successful defensive strategy. However it is only successful strategy when the cyclone is large, and the hunters are few. So the problem this time? The tribes are of equal size. When a defensive strategy of the mainstream is projection, the weapons will ultimately fail as the strategy is ultimately given away.

As the insults are hurled my way, I ultimately believe they are a reflection of the beliefs of the mainstream.

Sad, but true.

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.
