The End

by grip on 05-27-20 at 02:27 PM
It's not about competing political ideologies, it's not about the fallout of shutting down, it's not even about a couple million dying from a pandemic, it's all about the money.

The great social lubricator of the enormous machine of modern civilization is losing fluidity because it's not flowing downward as fast as is necessary. It's gummed up at the top and the gov can't give away our share to the investor class fast enough. Without movement, it loses viscosity and causes the financial

A War on the Truth

by grip on 04-30-20 at 12:48 AM
By Jonathan Karl: Front Row at the Trump Show
ABC News- chief White House correspondent

The president strategically baits reporters into personal grudge matches that undercut the credibility of the media. He has conducted a "Dr.-Jekyll-and-Mr.-Hyde routine" with the news media since

The surreal atmosphere of the Covid-19 pandemic calls to mind how I felt as a young man in the 84th Infantry Division during the Battle of the Bulge. Now, as in late 1944, there is a sense of inchoate danger, aimed not at any particular person, but striking randomly and with devastation. But there is an important difference between that faraway time and ours. American endurance then was fortified by an ultimate national purpose. Now, in a divided country, efficient and farsighted government is necessary

Strange Days

by grip on 03-31-20 at 11:24 PM
Everybody has stats, graphs, charts, studies, professional advice and news sources. They're all conflicting and variable with different viewpoints and skewed data. Thru social media, online publications, cable news networks, internet news sources, journals, blogs, magazines, etc, etc the information is endless, contradictory and befuddling. Everyone is an authority and expert, yet we're only getting part of the picture in most cases. Common sense is becoming less common, and reasoning has taken
