This is another of the W.O.O.D. series of semi-regular
Weekly Occasional Open Discussions.
(i.e. if I forget and skip one, no big)
Immediate prior one here:
and remains open for threads running there
(at least until the ‘several month’ auto-close of comments on stale threads).
Canonical list of old ones here:
So use “Tips” for “Oooh, look at the interesting ponder thing!”
and “W.O.O.D” for “Did you see what just happened?! What did you think about it?”
What’s Going On?
The Kavanaugh Circus may have the main show this week. The Senate is set to vote on the nomination, and the FBI is supposed to finish up their “investigation”. Then a pause while the Dims decide what lies to spin for the midterms and how best to use whatever happens this week as fodder.
Phoenix got some flooding rains. In the desert. But remember, this is a drought and the snow in the Western Mountains is a warm snow /sarc;
In Indonesia, the place that had the tsunami (Palu) now has a volcano erupting behind it. Quake, tsunami, volcano… when is the plague of frogs due?…
I’ve discovered an informal movement of MGTOW (pronounced Em-gee-tao or Mig-tao) for “Men Going Their Own Way”. Seems to be mostly made of “20 somethings” with a few from decades each side; basically saying “Women are too much of a PITA and the laws are screwball so I’m just going to not go near it.” (Where “it” is women and their demands). Interesting to watch the Feminist sorts struggle with the idea of men just deciding to say “not interested” and there is no “leadership” to attack… Gee, create a space where any woman at any time can slander and accuse of crimes and “must be believed” and they are surprised that some women abuse that system and then men decide to just walk away? Hope the women like cats… Lots of stuff if you search on MGTOW.
Related, there is a meme of being “Red Pilled” gaining currency. I’ve posted a video that ‘splains it. Basic idea is that the top 20% have started to live in a fantasy world and use their media / government ownership to spin a story that is divorced from reality. The bottom 80% see this disconnect and think “they are bat shit crazy”… but it takes a while. As the 80% individuals move from embracing the narrative to BSC Awareness, it is called being Red Pilled. So now I have a name for what happened with me. Moving from “global warming might be bad” and “Agenda 20 what?” to seeing the UN corruption and AGW as perpetrated fraud for money and the Agenda21 and Agenda30 as fraudulent control freaks breaking minds for power.
As the video points out, when this disconnect between the 20% and the 80% gets big enough with enough folks aware of it, that is when revolutions begin. IMHO Trump is the first step in that process, and the last peaceful point before the point of no return. Either Trump is allowed by TPTB to clean up their mess and make things work for the 80% (“Deplorables”) or the next cycle runs to the French Haircut mindset. That is what has been the pattern in history.
Perhaps we need vests or maybe even hard hats with a red pill image on them…
It is October and now comes winter. I expect this one to be very cold and snowy. Watch for increasing reports of cold, ice, snow and general bad weather with crop losses – and folks claiming it is caused by all the heat…
