Money

It is not the root of evil, all or any. It does, however, serve as a convenient cover/screen/distraction. So, if seriously considered, it hints at the location of evil. That is true whether we are looking at the owner of a secret isle in the Caribbean or a stash of arms in Ohio. “Follow the money” but do not let it mesmerize you.

This I like……

Racism is a nothingburger. The suffix negates the main word. Which id doubly accurate, since there is no such thing as race when we are talking about humans. Thereis no there there.

However, it is ironically appropriate for two reasons.

1) We are talking about hollow men, empty shells.

2) We are ralking about the perps, tather than the vics. That is progress.

Next we will have to talk about how to stop these machine-like creatures toting killing machines. It is hollow men toting machines which suggests that, since there is nobody there, the machines are a tell. From which we can conclude that if we want the machines to stop killing, they must be removed. This has nothing to do with persons bearing or not baring arms. We are only talking about machines, killing machines which, being property, are easy to identify and quantify.

There really is a good reason why our whole judicial system is mostly focused on property. Property is material, easy to quantify, identify and collect. Motives, on the other hand, are really hard to detect. So, it does not much matter whether the perps carrying around killing machines are motivated by racism, patriotism, mother love or Trump adulation. What matters are the killing machines which tell us they are up to no good.

“I am a Trump man”

In the morning’s local Georgia paper, a person writes “I am a Trump man.” How are people who identify with an obviously limited person who has “made it bigly” going to react when he fails spectacularly? How are people who yearn to be loved and enfolded going to react to the spectacle of victims being consoled. Will their jealousy be enhanced? Continue reading

The Guardian reports on the U.S. South

Well, the deniers are myopic. I do not know why the author calls the denial of environmental change racists. Perhaps it is because the same myopia that leads people to focus on persons (the same or opposite to themselves) leads them to being oblivious of the natural environment. Some recognize the fish they catch and can name them; others know that deer and hogs are to hunt. But then, we sort of have to conclude that they do not see very well from the fact that they often shoot each other. Most often, if trees are even mentioned, it is the context of providing a screen, of hiding something from view. But, on the edge of the marsh bushes have to cut down so they don’t obstruct the view. GHWB talked about “the vision thing.” I do not think he meant the same thing, but I appreciate the phrase. The South is all about the vision thing, what things look like, appearances. Which are, of course, deceiving.
