Fred Reed ran but got no votes, so it’s my turn. I’m officially announcing my candidacy for the President of the United States of America. Foreign born, I’m technically ineligible, but the deep state can make anything happen, and I have Jewish power behind me, for I’m not just its secret agent, but a real Jew, though tomorrow, I may declare myself German or Swedish.

How we feel trump biology. A pitbull is just like a poodle, we must all agree. Raise rutting bulls like cows.

All this crap about me sweating in a plastic recycling plant in Ea Kly—is there such a place?—is just a clumsy skit, done on a sound stage, like the Apollo landings. With Gal Gadot rubbing against me, I’m actually lounging in Tel Aviv, within sniping distance of Topsea Beach.

As for my blathering about gas chambers and wish for the erasure of Israel, they’re just head fakes to gain support from neo-Nazis and other deplorables, who constitute 99% of every state but California, Oregon, Washington, Vermont, Massachusetts and New York. Deep down, I’m a classic Jewish progressive, just like Bernie Sanders and Jonathan Revusky. With my platform, I will out green, out Marx and out Jill Stein all of these half assed faggots, so here it is:

Until yesterday, this reactionary country somehow believed that only men, with their toxic masculinity, should fight wars, but thank Goddess, that shit’s over, so now we have all these uniformed babes, bull dykes, chicks with dicks, tranimals, lezbois and whatever else, all failing to do the required pushups and chin ups, before they’re sent into battle to slaughter Muslims for Israel.

Among the pros of having troops with boobs is that we’ll have more hard up losers enlisting, for an incel will have a much better chance of rubbing against softness if he’s in the same fox hole with someone with a theoretical vagina. The cons are numerous, as in having more GI’s constantly scheming to screw each other more often. Already, there are nearly 30,000 intramural sexual assaults yearly, with more than a quarter of our female grunts victimized. Confronted with a serious foe, how will our multigendered military perform? Perhaps not so optimally. China or Russia may disrupt our tampon supply lines. Enraged and near death, trained killers might as well just stick it hard in the nearest rosy hole, damn the consequences, for even well-bred young men can barely constrain their erections just strolling down the peaceful lanes of Norman Rockwell, USA.

Did I just say “men”? My bad. Under my totally green yet entirely red administration, there will be no more men or women, two outdated and frankly embarrassing categories. We must become much more progressive. Soon as I take office, I will mandate that all Americans be transitioned into a sexually fluid state, with constantly shape shifting genitalia, so they won’t ever know, again, if they’re fucking or being fucked. A screwing penis will suddenly become the penetrated vagina, then back again, indefinitely.

As for borders and border walls, we’ve wasted way too much time arguing, for the solution is obvious. I’ll declare the entire world to be America, so everyone will become American, and in. Rejoice over your visa free travel everywhere! The deplorables may not be too happy about this, so I’ll explain to them, “The next time you’re sent to the Middle East, where you may lose a nut or two, you won’t be fighting for Israel, geopolitical positioning and/or energy routing, but, finally and unequivocally, to defend your homeland, for it’s all America, all the time, so no more of this, “We must fight them over there so we won’t have to fight them over here,” for everything will be “over here.” The removal of that ambiguity alone will make this worthwhile. As you lie in Walter Reed for decades on end, with no limbs, half a face and a tenth of your brain, you won’t have to seethe over being suckered, for you really did fight for America.

Since it should be abundantly clear by now that everyone wants to become American, my decree will be met with unprecedented jubilation worldwide, with thundering chants in Mogadishu, Caracas, Damascus, Beijing and Moscow, etc., of “I am an American!” Dictators like Putin and Xi Jinping will undoubtedly balk, however, but we’ll bring all these breakaway provinces into the red, white and blue fold, for the the people’s wishes shall not be denied. As some clown once plagiarized, “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice,” and there’s no justice but American.

What’s up with this Ocasio-Cortez chick? She ain’t ish, a mere teaser to my programing. Why stop at giving an income only to those who are unwilling to work? Why not just outlaw work?! Which is what I’m going to do, for with the Jewish Reserve, money can be farted out of thin air, so a universal guaranteed income is more than feasible, with everyone an instant millionaire even. Of course, an ounce of chicken liver will cost a billion, but with our fudged statistics, already in place, inflation won’t be an issue.

For decades, misguided malcontents have grumbled about offshoring and the importation of cheap labor, leading to thousands of American factories shutting down, millions of workers laid off and every Main Street outside the Hamptons desolate. Demanding that jobs be brought back, these dimwits don’t understand that the master plan has always been to get rid of as many jobs as possible, to create a work free America. In the American workers’ paradise, there won’t be anything for useless eaters to do but shoot up synthetic heroin, as sent to us from China. Thank you, China!

ORDER IT NOW

Other great news include soaring rates of suicides, rising emigration and, soon enough, casualties from street battles between equally clueless factions, so the population will cull itself, leaving just the docile to perform menial tasks for the chosen few, of which you’ll never be. Who are you kidding?!

Now, for some side matters. Our higher education has been moving relentlessly in the proper direction for decades, with students taught to hate whiteness, grammar, men, nationhood, common sense and their own mind, lest they have an incorrect thought, but we must not stop here, comrades. Inside a cowed undergraduate there may still lurk a heretic who actually thinks that men and women are biologically distinct, that the races are different, with each having relative advantages and defects, that the Holocaust is a litany of lies enabling out of control Jewish power, and there is no reason why the USA, what’s left of it, should be complicit in Israel’s endless criminality. To stamp out these disgusting thoughts, I will mandate that all of our colleges be renamed Hasbara University, and deployed with exactly the same curriculum.

I understand that during football season, Hasbara of Ann Arbor vs. Hasbara of Columbus doesn’t quite have the same ring as Michigan vs. Ohio State, but you better get used to it, you whiny bitches, for anyone who complains will be charged with anti-Semitism, a capital offense, and be executed at halftime.

It’s remarkable what we’ve been able to accomplished, for the American left now openly hate the masses, and our educated are militantly ashamed of their nation’s heritage, but much more needs to be done, so my Secretary of Education will be, you’ve guessed it, Jussie Smollet. Although this exceedingly winsome African-American queer fumbled a bit lately, his people of color heart and mind are correctly aligned. He knows exactly what we’re after, miseducation wise.

You may be wondering how I can court both the right and left at the same time? Easy. Since neither camp reads the other’s websites, and those who watch CNN avoid Fox, and vice versa, I can freely contradict myself without hardly anyone noticing, as long as the deep state is behind me. During presidential debates, I will speak from both sides of my mouth, literally at the same time, and be lauded by pundits for my unmatched honesty. Everything will be transparent. Unlike all the others, I won’t even wait months to break promises.

It is, again, 5:30 in the morning, and I’m yawning at Mrs. Ha’s cafe, as her first and only customer. The lovely Rade schoolchildren won’t be rolling by on their bikes for another hour or so. There’s no more calming sight than their serene, angelic and bantering faces. In the inky dark, a Saigon-bound bus idles. Hungry, I can’t wait for my morning msabbaha at Lala Land. Oh shit, I mean pho! Homemade pho! Let’s do this scene over!

Linh Dinh’s latest book is Postcards from the End of America. He maintains a regularly updated photo blog.

  1. So the Colonel in “Full Metal Jacket” was indeed correct that inside of every Vietnamese was an American just waiting to get out. All this time we’ve been at war with ourselves.

    As an aside, Linh Dinh looks to be getting fitter! Some physical labor clearly agrees with him. Thanks God cheesesteaks and Rolling Rock will soon be coming to Vietnam after Linh declares it America. Enough pho already!

    For sure. I like the article though I think Linh Dinh did a fine job it was pretty funny. Picking on how crazy, ridiculous, and far left American politics has become is amusing so I give him credit this was one of the best I read in that regard. I especially found funny the part when he said 99% of people in states are neo-nazi outside of the most leftist states like NY and commiefornia because thats actually what the jews and elites talk about and want you to believe.

  8. Charlie says:

    You had me worried for a second there Linh.

    As an aside, I have never seen bicycle wheels with so many spokes. Back in the day bicycle wheels had 36 spokes, a reasonable trade-off between weight, strength and rigidity. At some point economic realities pushed the spoke count downward – 32, 28, and lower – resulting in cheaper, lighter, and flimsier wheels. The bicycle wheels in your photos look to have 72 or more spokes. Do normal economics not work in Vietnam?

  9. Fantastic images, Linh. Funny bordering on terrifying.

    Hello Linh,

    Thank you for the laughs. This is the best satire yet (C.J. Hopkins, look out!), and I was completely disarmed … until this sentence, “What’s up with this Ocasio-Cortez chick? She ain’t ish, a mere teaser to my programing. Why stop at giving an income only to those who are unwilling to work?” You both mischaracterize Guaranteed Basic Income, and misattribute it’s promotion. AOC, who has already proven compromised by the Israel Lobby, may or may not have mentioned it, but she’s a footnote.

    Andrew Yang’s whole campaign is about economic and social realism, not some left/right tripe. Of course, the trolls who lurk under the UR bridge don’t want to talk about this.

    If every person received $1,000 per month, and if there are roughly 250 million people over the age of 18, I calculate a $3 trillion yearly expense. We could double all taxes. Is that “practical economics”? Unfortunately I don’t know a place in the US where one can survive on $1,000 a month.

    Mr. Yang talks about the imminent end of the truck driving occupation. Not so long ago the majority of Americans depended on farming for some or all of their livelihood. Today one or two percent handle all the farming and there is plenty of food. Somehow those ex farmers found other employment.

    Yang is comfortable in his skin, not ideological, has thought through many scenarios.
    But it still sounds pie-in-the-sky: Yang says oil pays the citizens of Alaska, and AI is the new Oil, but how does AI produce a revenue stream large enough to cover $3 trillion annually?

    I wonder if Yang has considered employee ownership of the enterprise where they work.

    If you “declare the entire world to be America, so everyone will become American, and in”…we’ll be left without our only quadrennial consolation, the World Cup! Granted, this may be the only way America could ever win the damned thing but it would be ever so boring. To have only one team – or 32 teams with the same name – in the Milky Way’s most important event might detract slightly from the suspense. We already know every year that an American team will win the Super Bowl & the World Series (sic); but does it have to be rigged for America to win the World Cup, too? So even if you won’t be playing for Israel, FIFA geofootball positioning and/or bribery routing, it’s still a little too obvious isn’t it if it’s “all America, all the time”? And then, no more of this, “We must beat them over there so we won’t have to have a better goal difference over here”?
    But, “since it should be abundantly clear by now that everyone wants to become American”, so they can at last play something called ‘soccer’, your decree may be met with “unprecedented jubilation” worldwide, with thundering chants in the Maracana, San Siro, Allianz,Wembly&El Monumental, etc., of “I am an American!” Dictators like Ceferin and Al-Khalifa will undoubtedly balk, however, but we’ll bring all these breakaway FA’s into the red, white and blue FA, for the the people’s wishes shall not be denied.

    LD, you can’t claim originality for this. Didn’t the Romans also try this years ago: universal citizenship, open borders … unfortunately followed by perpetual civil war and a complete breakdown in the social order?

    As I seem to recall, in the end, it didn’t turn out well for the Romans … or anyone else for that matter. By the 5th Century, weren’t people, perplexed, scratching their heads and asking as they entered the threshold of the Dark Ages, “What happened to the Romans? Where are they? Please, we desperately want them back … we need them!”

    P.S. LD, you are over the edge in the nicest of ways! What are you on? I know Fred Reed prefers tequila. I like red wine … but I’m willing to change if it helps me commiserate over the divine mysteries as well as you do.

    Hi all,

    For the last decade, I’ve received monetary contributions from a lot of people, and that’s how I’ve managed to write hundreds of contentious and career destroying articles. Lest you think this is some lucrative arrangement, I used to receive a much better income from giving talks/readings at universities, as well teaching an occasional course.

    At no point, however, did I allow whoever was paying me to dictate a single word of what I was going to write, and that’s how I’ve ended up in Vietnam, away from that sickeningly corrupt system, and I’m not complaining in the least. I’m happy here. I don’t owe anyone anything. I’m not a whore in any way.

    Since Kevin Barrett shows up here to denigrade me and to defend Jonathan Revusky, he should publicly state that he’s getting quite a bit of money from Revusky, to clear up any misunderstanding about conflicts of interest. It’s fine that you disagree with me, Kevin, but let’s be up front about who’s paying you. Again, I used to respect you so much because I thought you couldn’t be swayed by cash.

    This is very sad. If I ever judged you correctly, Kevin, I’m certain you’re already regretting your abject outburst.

    Nevertheless, there’s something weird going on here, like when Linh implied that Revusky might need a defense. And why lump him in with the Magic Socialist? So tell us, is Revusky really a Jew or was that part of the comedy? Can’t tell by looking at him. Is he part Asian? http://deeptruth.info/speakers/

    And what would you have us do if we are largely mystified by this kerfuffle?

    Linh Dinh is my favorite author published here. I thought “uh-oh” back when he took up with Mr. Revusky, and am not surprised that their relationship has (apparently) since decayed. If there’s been anything else here at UR that would be relevant to someone like me weighing in, then I’ve missed it. (I do tend to skip over most of what Mr. Revusky has to say.)

    Why shouldn’t Mr. Barrett’s explanation be accepted? Your proposed poll seems like another 21st Century exercise in digitized mobbing.

    his bizarre outburst in defense of Revusky

    Calling J. Revusky a “classic Jewish progressive” and comparing him to Bernie Sanders was pretty bizarre. It looked like the intention was a throwaway insult.

    So, as far as I can see, your idea is that you can insult other people and it is “bizarre” when you get insulted back.

    Anyway, where is Revusky? He’s got a pretty sharp tongue at times. I guess he must have been banned from replying.

    You seem a bit of a snowflake — it clearly was not meant as/has nothing to do with “digitized mobbing” (whatever that is) — FWIW: I do accept his explanation, and I never said, either directly or indirectly, that it should not be accepted — I have no reason not to accept it — but then I do not know him or anything about his (past) relationship with Linh (nor am I familiar with his writing style: “playful tone”).

    Talk about a scam of epic proportions, here is the latest scam thought up by the “holohoax” crowd…
    Follow the shekels…the jewish “holohoax” crowd fears that their “cash cow” is coming to and end that they have come up with another discredited concept to “keep the dream alive” and to “keep the shekels flowing”.
    “Holocaust transference syndrome” is their latest scam-a crackpot idea thought up by two jewish psychologists.
    These jewish psychologists claim that holocaust “memories” are transferred from “holocaust survivors” to children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, other relatives, and even unrelated jewish individuals (but only jewish individuals-not “goyim”)…and that they should be eligible to receive “holocaust” reparations.
    You see, the idea is to have an unlimited, continuing stream of jewish “holocaust survivors” to “keep the dream alive” (and the shekels flowing).
    It is interesting to note that the jewish organizations that handle “holohoax” reparations claims are themselve part of an international jewish criminal cabal that is raking in billions of shekels above and beyond what they are paying out in “claims”.
    The jewish holohoax is on its last breath…rightly so. It is time to put this “hoax of the twentieth century” to death…along with closing the publicly-funded “holocaustianity” museums.

    Well, it wasn’t China that invaded all those Muslims nations to turn them into ‘liberal Democrats’. I mean, the rulers of the US must believe there is something WRONG with the Muslim world to require that kind of radical surgery that killed so many lives.

    Btw, which nation treats Russian Christianity as a mental illness? Which nation prosecutes and bankrupts decent Christians who refuse to bake ‘gay wedding cakes’? Which nations say those who are critical or disdainful of Homomania are suffering from a ‘phobia’, or ‘Homophobia’? In the US, those who express disgust over homosexual fecal penetration or tranny-penis-cutting are deemed clinically and morally ill. They must be fired and blacklisted OR sent to sensitivity training.

    Also, which nation says the US must support the Jewish ethnocentrism of Israel but treats any desire for nationalism among Europeans to be ‘far right’ and mentally sick?

    Daily Stormer
    March 10, 2019

    I am the most fanatical Trump supporter I’ve ever met.

    And at this point, Trump has lost me.

    [MORE]

    It wasn’t the Jew comments. Those are insult to injury. It wasn’t even the push for war in South America.

    What lost me was the repeated statements about how we need immigrants because factories.

    Following these comments, it’s no longer just Queen Ann who has had enough.

    The entire support base is collapsing.

    New York Times:

    For months, President Trump has been railing about the urgent need for a wall to protect against what he calls “an invasion” of illegal immigrants flooding across the southwestern border. But he has also been delivering another message: “We need workers,” he told a group of activists recently.

    In other words, he wants more immigrants.

    “I want people to come into our country, in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally,” Mr. Trump ad-libbed last month during his State of the Union address.

    Comments like those from the president have ignited furious criticism from his hard-line, anti-immigrant supporters who accuse him of caving to demands for cheap foreign labor from corporations, establishment Republicans and big donors while abandoning his election promise to protect his working-class supporters from the effects of globalism.

    “This is clearly a betrayal of what immigration hawks hoped the Trump administration would be for,” said Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies, which advocates cutting legal immigration by more than half. He warned that Mr. Trump was in danger of being “not even that different from a conventional Republican.”

    Breitbart News, a conservative website that promotes anti-immigrant messaging, published on Thursday the latest in a series of articles attacking Mr. Trump for catering to big business at the expense of the Americans who put him in the Oval Office. “Trump Requests ‘More’ Foreign Workers as Southern Border Gets Overrun,” the site blared on its home page.

    “That Mr. Trump would advance the interests of the global elite ahead of our citizens would be a tragic reversal on any day,” Lou Dobbs, the Fox News host, said in a televised rant against the president on Wednesday evening on the Fox Business Channel. “The White House has simply lost its way.”

    Corporations and influential corporate conservatives such as Charles G. Koch and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce have long urged the president to help them recruit the talent they need by expanding the number of workers who can enter the United States from other countries.

    “We’re going to have a lot of people coming into the country. We want a lot of people coming in. And we need it,” Mr. Trump said as he sat next to Tim Cook, the chief executive of Apple, and other executives. “We want to have the companies grow, and the only way they’re going to grow is if we give them the workers, and the only way we’re going to have the workers is to do exactly what we’re doing.”

    The harsh record — and comments by Mr. Trump that disparaged African nations in vulgar terms and suggested that Haitian immigrants “all have AIDS” — has earned him the enmity of Democrats and immigration activists, who call him a racist president.

    It is unclear whether Mr. Trump will follow through on his recent, pro-business messaging. Many of the president’s aides — including Stephen Miller, his top immigration adviser in the White House — agree with the hard-line activists about the need to lower legal immigration.

    But even so, some of the nation’s most hard-line anti-immigration activists have become increasingly nervous that Mr. Trump might waver on their primary concern — the need to shrink the number of immigrants who enter the United States each year, currently 1.1 million.

    They argue that tight labor markets make it exactly the wrong time to allow more foreign workers to compete with Americans. Chris Chmielenski, the deputy director of NumbersUSA, which lobbies for lower legal immigration, said companies should be pressured to hire more Americans instead.

    “Anything we do now to bring in more foreign workers could actually reverse some of the economic gains over the last four years,” Mr. Chmielenski said. “We’re absolutely concerned. We feel this isn’t how he ran on the issue.”

    Last week, in an effort to communicate that message directly to Mr. Trump, NumbersUSA began airing an ad on Fox News Channel in the hopes that the president would get the message that his supporters do not want to let in more than one million immigrants each year.

    “The majority of voters say the number should be cut to 500,000 or less,” the ad said. “Americans want less immigration.”

    Mr. Krikorian, of the Center for Immigration Studies, said that companies that no longer have access to foreign workers would have no choice but to turn to Americans who are still struggling to find work: people with disabilities, teenagers, older people and even former convicts.

    He also said that modest increases in wages for workers would evaporate if companies were allowed to simply tap an unlimited pool of lower-paid workers from other countries.

    “If you want wages to go up,” Mr. Krikorian said, “you don’t import more foreign labor.”

    In other news, if you want your brain to remain in tact, you don’t shoot yourself in the head.

    Business groups dispute that analysis. They argue that immigration expands the amount of business activity in the United States, adding jobs and increasing wages for the vast majority of American workers.

    Todd Schulte, the president of FWD.us, a pro-immigration advocacy group that started with backing from Mark Zuckerberg, a founder of Facebook, said that “immigrants and immigration increase economic growth, they increase economic productivity and they increase wages for the overwhelming number of native-born Americans.”

    Mr. Schulte, whose group has been highly critical of Mr. Trump’s anti-immigrant messaging and policies, welcomed the president’s recognition that legal immigration is a positive thing for the United States’ economy.

    It is frustrating that this entire conversation has to take place on the grounds of the economic benefits or lack thereof. It is simply insane that we can’t say “this is our country and we deserve to have a place to live – this isn’t a fucking marketplace of the world, we are people and we live here.”

    But even on the grounds of economics, the fact is that more people always equals lower wages, and shills who go out there and claim something different are simply lying. Supply and demand is the single most basic concept of economics. This isn’t even debatable on any level, which is why almost all of the arguments for immigration are limited to humanitarian arguments like “a baby died tho.”

    The only things that increase due to more people are the profits of corporations and the GDP, neither of which benefits us as a people and nation.

    From me to Breitbart to Lou Dobbs to every single anti-immigration organization, support is vanishing like smoke.

    I have no idea what the fuck Trump is doing.

    It is maybe interesting to think about why he would do this. I know who I blame.

    Some people want to claim that this was always the plan from the beginning, and he was always just another politician. I don’t think this is at all true. It just doesn’t make any sense. What makes much more sense is that he is one man who stood alone against the Jewish system and he lost the fight.

    But as much as people instinctively want to focus on his personality, his mindset and his personal motivations, these things are completely irrelevant. I understand you are angry. We’re all angry. But from a logical point of view, sitting around trying to think of why Trump is doing this, or being mad at him, is just feminine emotionality.

    What matters is what is happening.

    And what is happening is that this guy is going up there and saying that he wants to flood the country with brown people “because factories.”

    Which means the jig is up.

    I currently don’t know if I will endorse him in 2020. I probably will, short of some miraculous event wherein there is a third party candidate who is viable and who I don’t think will release hell on us (Yang, basically).

    If he loses, the Democrats are going to release hell. It’s going to be like nothing you can even begin to imagine right now.

    I can imagine it.

    They are going to arrest people for speech. They are going to restrict gun sales, and start selectively raiding people and taking their guns based on politics. They are going to take the children away from right wingers. And when they take them away, they are going to turn them into trannies, inject them with hormones and cut their dicks off.

    And the gates will be opened up.

    You will be buried in the genetic waste of the entire planet.

    I would prefer to have another 4 years of Trump fucking around before this happens, to give people more time to prepare.

    But I don’t really think that’s very likely at this point. There is virtually no way he can win.

    So get ready lads.

    What they are going to start with is accusations of allegiances to Russia. If they start accusing people of being foreign operatives, they aren’t even going to need to change any of the laws in order to come for you. And they’ve already spent years building this narrative.

    If you’re already doxed, I’d think very seriously about leaving the country.

    If you’re not doxed, they probably aren’t going to come for you just for reading websites and posting memes.

    But this website will be removed from the normal internet completely and permanently, so we’re going to start a big push to get everyone on Tor. Which is getting easier, by the way.

    It’s actually good that we got shut down at Charlottesville, as it’s forced us to develop the proper infrastructure and get people used to using it. Half of our traffic is already on Tor.

    These things always tend to work out.

    No, I moved overseas when I was 25 and have lived in Dubai and Asia ever since.

    I had many Polish-Catholic friends from my rust-belt Michigan city who had kids at 21, had to take any job and were stuck in houses whose property value was worth nothing in Flint or Hamtramck as they turned into third world countries.

    But in my case, living in the Arab Gulf and then Asia, I was unaware of the cultural shifts and they did not affect me.

    You know the old expression “What if they announced a war and nobody showed up”.

    People like me just don’t care. So we cannot really be affected. Especially men like myself who have so little regard for America or our birthplace that spending our lives overseas was a better choice.

    When you are a single male, with no dependents, no spouse, no loyalties who could care less about the lousy rust-belt place he was born…there is not much anyone can do to induce you to believe in much.

    I’m sure Linh agrees.

    The fact that he choose to return to Vietnam because Philly is a third world country for average people just reflects how pointless culture wars are.

    Sure thing. If you look at what Trump is good at, its managing bankruptcy.
    I think that was the initial mission why the snake put him in place, to liquidate the US corporation. I think he does a fine job, the outcome will be that he contributed in a major way to the fall of the US corporate empire. He also makes it very openly clear to the US people, that they are vassals of the jews.

    Its more difficult in english to understand what’s going on in terms of democracy and elections, but it is not like a vast a majority think, its not just a slight error in democracy, it is designed this way. Its a disconnect the masses have, they don’t understand the game rules of the game they play, and the game designers don’t go in length to explain the rules. They put them out in kind of plain sight but encoded, and the masses can’t decode it due to missing keys, ignorance and busyness cycling in the hamster wheel.

    In german, the ballot box is called urn(Wahlurne). An urn is a vessel to collect the bodily remains, ash of the dead. In essence, elections are a ritual burial of the legal fiction’s vote. The legal fiction is the Person(a), a theatrical mask.

    My childhood friend was from England, little place outside London but I forget the name of it. Said he liked our little place in Ohio because it was very nearly the same set-up as there: You could walk to work, walk to a local green grocery for your food, walk to the park or to church or the mayor’s office, and do it all even if the weather was lousy.

    There are about 1.9 million heavy and tractor trailer drivers earning an average of $42,470 a year, based mainly on miles driven, according to the BLS. The BLS says this equates to $20.42 an hour, which is a brazen lie inasmuch as the drivers of the big highway rigs work 7 day weeks for at least 70-hour weeks, take a day off in the middle of nowhere, and go back at it. Overall they’re driving 73 days a quarter. Their real hourly wage including unpaid wait time for loading, etc is half the BLS’s come-on teaser, working full time for the trucking giants to enlist new drivers into the annual, this-time-it’s-way-worse driver-shortage scare.

    The over-the-road, big rig drivers also get to eat and sleep in their cab, breathing in heavy diesel fumes from idling trucks wherever they park for the night. Generally there is no lunch per se, just a handy snack and water bottle. Dangerous and very unhealthy work, too. The turnover rate is in the high 90’s percentage level. In other words, about twenty-four out of twenty-five either change jobs or can’t take it at all and quit every year. Not quite the American Dream.

    Fyi, a few years ago, former-President Jimmy Carter appeared on Oprah Winfrey’s very popular TV talk-show. He helped clear up a erroneous voter misperception, and very gentlemanly told Oprah that “the US is no longer a democracy.”

    Oprah was extremely nice about Carter’s deliverance of such bad news about US democracy, and minus any followup, The Oprah Winfrey Show broke for a commercial.🤔

    When pressed as to whether she believed the US intelligence services [regarding Syria, CW], she replied that we had been lied to by the government about Iraq. IMO that was her strongest moment, because the host[ess] was trying to make a gotcha moment – which totally backfired.

    Regarding Assad, she refused to make a judgment, saying that “if evidence showed,” blah blah blah. Even though she’d already made a remark about CW use, this was a significant, if subtle, step back from remarks made on The View (a daytime women’s talk show) for which she got vociferous blowback from the anti-intervention community.

    Also, she refused to label Ilhan Omar’s remarks anti-Semitic, and, more importantly, said that a necessary discussion was opened regarding a deeper problem. She cited freedom of speech, but one could read more into it.

    Denk, unless you know of some magical independent messiah, or predict civil insurrection, someone from the duopoly will be elected in 2020. And BTW, she has seriously bucked the Dems, and in this Town Hall she rejected labels such as socialist, capitalist, etc.

    Mr Carter said something, but its not really of relevance to the game played.
    I accidentally posted my answer in the wrong article. Too many tabs can be confusing.

    There is a fundamental difference between the human being and this mask(Persona) most human beings wear without ever questioning why to wear it. They don’t even realize the mask they wear.
    The mask is owned by the corporation that creates the masks, it is a dead thing, a piece of paper, a contract.
    Why do human beings act as caretakers of these masks, that are tied to ‘laws’/rules made for these masks only and exclusively?

    It is a very clever scheme, a trick to bind us to a fake reality, an illusion, and it is very old.
    The persona is very comparable to a playable character in a computer game, eg WoW. You play an elf, but you are not an elf. You ride a bike, but you are not the bike, you use a person(mask), but you are not the mask.
    The system rests on the assumption that you take care of the mask, and that you protect the mask, and that you are liable for its usage. If you reproduced with a wonderful masked woman, the child will start to wear a mask the moment the birth certificate is created.

    Hi Germanicus!

    Fyi, above, I never played computer-video games except for Nintendo 64, “Mario.” In that game, one took on the “persona” of Mario. Often, Mario ran, leapt, fell, he rose, Mario never shot PLO, and Mario never died. (I see you doze now, but, but, stay)

    These “masks”, they very very likely do wear them.
    The mask is the legal fiction of the Person. The Person you use is not you,, the human being the human being, Person is not owned by you, but by the makers of the Person, the state, corporation whoever creates the Person. It is why everything in in US is licensed for the Person. The makers g

    I would even say, you can’t enter any US military or office without wearing the mask, the Person. The Person is your game figure on the game board, but you probably do not know the full game rules.
    If the makers of the masks and the game decide to tweak a game parameter in the internal game engine, you probably will not be informed, you are the player, not the maker of the game. An Elf in WoW can’t really influence the creators at Blizzard games.

    I know these kind of videos, sad, very very sad, but Prussian military code is about masks, because if you know how to take yourself of off the game board, you have a weapon that is able to kill yourself if not properly used. Dangerous thing, this weapon of wisdom.

    In ancient Rome, the word persona (Latin) or prosopon (πρόσωπον; Greek) originally referred to the masks worn by actors on stage. The various masks represented the various “personae” in the stage play.[9]
