One of the “tells” for the instinct-driven is their aversion to and misuse of prepositions, syllables which signal the direction of an activity’s energy flow or function. So, for example, “construct” tells us an agent is working to build something up or put things together, while the agent who obstructs stands in the way. Destruction takes things apart. A person who has no sense of direction and just reacts like waves crashing into a wall has only two modes. Be the wave or be the wall.
What is interesting about the syllable/prefix “con” is that its meaning is variable and even perverse. Sometimes it means “with” as in conspire; and sometimes it means “against,” as in conflict. Or maybe it is just that the second syllable tends to be stronger and more determinative.
Anyway, the Dude is both a wall that is not going anywhere and a sponge that has soaked up popular U.S. culture and exhibits it when squeezed. Remember the Pillsbury dough boy?
Can something be both true and false; beyond good and evil? Yes, it is amoral, like the instinct-driven female mosquito.
So, maybe that is a feature, not a flaw. Part of the strategy of designed to fail. Like the pratfall. The object? To entertain. Entertainment and celebrity go hand in hand. The circus goes on. Make people forget they are starving. Remember Charlie Chaplin eating a shoe. Was that not hilarious?
Poor Donnie’s in an unfunny sitcom that’s about to be cancelled.
Seems about right. Why give Putin any credit?
Remember the guy some people wanted to have a beer with? He was able to figure out that the White House is a prison and told ‘em about it.
So, what did those people do when confronted with a crook? They sent him to prison.
Since time is not of the essence for the base, they simply sentenced the crook BEFORE all the crimes were exposed.
Besides, putting the cart before the horse keeps the horse from running away.
THE PARTY OF PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS
FOR THE TWINKLES IN FATHERS’ EYES
Thoughts on the rationale for borrowing dollars from China.
Letting hoarders lend us dollars for an additional profit instead of reqiring them to be sent back for counting and redistribution is how Congress rewards hoarders, regardless of national origin, because this hoarding gives them an excuse for why the are not providing for the general welfare. Also, hoarding worthless currency supports the illusion of superiority to which many people aspire. Hoarding lots of dollars also supports the illusion that anyone can grow up to be a king.
