I have come to a working theory on the emergence of Bloomberg. I watched the clips of the debate last night and saw what I had expected.
Scott Adams has a concept called “The Talent Stack” in his writings, which he uses to size up people . It is blindingly simple , and I have yet to hear anyone challenge it. The more diverse skills and disciplines you acquire, the more you will succeed at what you do. If you are trained in engineering, accounting and psychology, you will do better than a person gifted in any single talent over the long run. Adams reasons it is due to the ability to use multiple mental frames to analyze your situation and find a winning path.... [Read More]
Seeing the state of play, where the Senate agreed to not acquit the POTUS until after the State of the Union speech, I predict that our President has two basic choices:
1. Delay the SOTU until the Senate does it’s job
2. Give A Knock Them Dead Speech of His Life... [Read More]
Over a three year timeframe I have seen an effective and unbelievable communications suicide by the Progressive politicians.
They have an opponent who has cajoled them to embrace post birth abortion, defend tyrannical genocidal regimes, embrace the impoverishment of the working and middle classes to support a climate crisis which still refuses to appear on stage, promote illegal immigrants rights as superior to citizen rights, embrace farming out US labor to cheap imports for Big Ag and Big Tech, Postpone trade deals which create jobs, propose killing all industrial development and demand the access of their favored form of transgenders access to your children’s bathrooms and showers....

So this is Christmas in the Pacific Northwest. 630am, driving north the see the grandkids in Seattle. Travelling that morning reduces traffic congestion by about 100%. Wonderful breakfast on the road and rolled in to celebrate with the three girls.... [Read More]
We often rail about the effectiveness of the progressive media which is highly scripted and managed.
To ape this would be a huge mistake. It is fighting the war on their terms.... [Read More]
We have achieved the Marshall McLuhan Singularity Point of No Return Event Horizon of History.
Not “The Medium is the Message” but the best Woody Allen scene ever in Annie Hall where in response to a loudmouth jerk pontificating on McLuhan’s theories on a movie line, Woody’s character stops him and says “I have Marshall McLuhan right here” and pulls the man out from behind a movie poster. McLuhan then begins to dismantle the self important jerk.... [Read More]
The best part of the UK Election result is it is the last linchpin for a new economics of the planet. The post Nixon era of globalists buying congress and the Federal Bureaucracy to keep the money , assets, skills , intellectual property and jobs flowing out of the US is crashing down. With the incentives for relocation of the supply chains out of China (both from tariffs by the USA and Chinese blatant piracy), the rejection of NAFTA and TPP, we are forming a group of the USA, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and now the UK , with potential for Australia and Brazil to join who will implement fair trade and real win win economics. Canada will eventually come along politically out of necessity. The UK -US deal will begin the complete destruction of the EU as an economic cartel.
The implications are staggering for the chance of keeping freedom alive for a few more generations.... [Read More]
It looks like the two uncouth and crazy outsiders are beginning to shake the trees. So far, the UK results look promising, and a solid swell of rejection of the worst elite class in two generations is underway in the USA.
Amazing that the culprits behind this effort are both born in New York City… I swear, it must be the water or something…... [Read More]
Watching the not as good as his father Chris Wallace attack Trump for going after the ‘press’ and being dangerous to the ‘freedom of the press’ has triggered a thought.... [Read More]
My musing has led me down a path lately , one of optimism.
The antics of the elite media, politicians and entrenched bureaucrats who have run the country for a while have gone over a tipping point. A tipping point of long term public trust.... [Read More]
Nothing like a good BritCom
Nancy apparently threw the gauntlet down this morning. I have two possible theories as the how this unfolds.
1. The Democrats need to muddy the field . They have no candidate, and Bill Barr is bearing down on her masters with investigations and such. She knows Nadler and Schiff are television poison. ... [Read More]
I am sitting in my home office/lair/fortress of solitude/batcave trying to catch up on the dental companies supply chain backlog after the holiday while also searching Amazon for sharks with freaking lasers on their heads (No lair complete without them) and keeping the notifications of the Nadler-Pelosi remake of 12 Angry Men in the background processor of my brain stem.
Meanwhile, I have a very young and competent installer for my new water treatment system who knows what he is doing and is service oriented to a fault drilling holes in my garage and sewer runoff pipes. (Only surprise expense in the whole move. Not bad) I feel confident the blue collar gen z folks are our future. This one was telling me about how he is doing well with a full plate of work and feels sorry for his friends who went to college.... [Read More]
Most definitions of the word are done by people who are not curmudgeons, so therefore have little to no significance in reality.
Mark Twain may have been the best example. A person with experience and insight and little patience to gloss over the silliness most people accept. To most, this comes off as “grumpy , ill tempered old man”. What else could be expected from the safe spaces, participation trophy crowd? (Female Curmudgeonry has a very different persona but shares the outcomes described here.)... [Read More]
