SUIVRE : K Street Nation Trump
Rubrique : Editoriaux





Considering that the 2016 election looks like a Dark Age puppet show — Pantalone and La Signora smacking each other with dildos — we forget this spectacle is serious. Rather large matters are at stake, such as the continuity of governance, the legitimacy of the two major political parties, the credibility of our financial arrangements, perhaps even the durability of the nation as a united polity.


Most of the deliberate comedy comes from Donald Trump, whose super-long dangling necktie looks like it was designed for laughs by the Commedia dell'Arte prop department, not to mention the hair, which I have maintained for many years is actually a wolverine living on top of Trump’s head. Trump certainly represents a large and valid strain of sentiment in the zeitgeist — the frustration of many ordinary citizens at government-sponsored racketeering that is shoving them into pauperdom. But his utterances against all that are so childish and disordered that he de-legitimates his own mission every time he opens his mouth.


Hillary delivers her laughs mostly deadpan, for instance her Sunday morning ABC interview with the old 1992 Clinton “War Room” hand George Stephanopoulos, who grilled the Flying Reptile rather mercilessly over the recent report from the State Department Inspector General that said she was “not allowed” to use the private email server no, ifs, ands, or buts. As she struggled to deflect the question, the “uh”s started to stipple her vapid evasions like holes punched in a life raft. It was fun watching her sink, uh, uh, uh, gurgle gurgle — though surely that was not the effect she was going for.


Bernie, of course, is not so funny. He’s as serious as a heart attack, which suggests that a pretty sizeable portion of the public is sick of being diverted with slapstick comedy. The old bastard is determined to give the Democratic Party poobahs some schooling in ethical procedure. I admire the heck out of that — also, his record as a demonstrably non-griftable public servant, and his stance against the racketeering-as-usual status quo — though I’m not persuaded he would be an effective president (if such a thing is even theoretically conceivable) given his nanny government disposition. But the bigshots of the DNC still have a lot of ‘splainin’ to do, and it looks like ole Bernie is going to beat it out of them at Philadelphia in July. What I wonder: is he strong enough to hold Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on his lap while he applies the rod.


The people of the United States have real grievances with the way this country is being run. Last Friday’s job’s report was a humdinger: only 38,000 new jobs created in a country of over 300 million, with a whole new crop of job-seeking college grads just churned out of the diploma mills. I guess the national shortage of waiters and bartenders has finally come to an end.


What’s required, of course, is a pretty stout restructuring of the US economy. And that should be understood to be a matter of national survival. We need to step way back on every kind of giantism currently afflicting us: giant agri-biz, giant commerce (Wal Mart etc.), giant banking, giant war-making, and giant government — this last item being so larded with incompetence on top of institutional entropy that it is literally a menace to American society.


The trend on future resources and capital availability is manifestly downward, and the obvious conclusion is the need to make this economy smaller and finer. The finer part of the deal means many more distributed tasks among the population, especially in farming and commerce operations that must be done at a local level. This means more Americans working on smaller farms and more Americans working in reconstructed Main Street business, both wholesale and retail. This would also necessarily lead to a shift out of the suburban clusterfuck and the rebuilding of ten thousand forsaken American towns and smaller cities.


For the moment, many demoralized Americans may feel more comfortable playing video games, eating on SNAP cards, and watching Trump fulminate on TV, but the horizon on that is limited too. Sooner or later they will have to become un-demoralized and do something else with their lives.


The main reason I am so against the Hillary and Trump, and so ambivalent on Bernie is their inability to comprehend the scope of action actually required to avoid sheer cultural collapse.

the scope of action to be followed is freedom. yes a free economy without the crony crap really works. the market sees a need and supplies it. wit competition always lurking around the dollar if you dont make the best product or service. but profit motive has been given a dirty name by the control freaks so that they can well duh control you. give you there choice of products or lock you up for not being a good comrad to some other control freak. its simple kids. thats what they never want you to know. our choices regulate the free market like those pricks can never do.
"Most of the deliberate comedy comes from . . . . " the Central Banks printing money out of thin air, the Elective Wars America has going on all over the globe, and banks getting Bailed Out with TAXPAYER money. We've been in Deliberate Comedy a long, long, long time James. Trump may not be "prez material" but he's "We ~ The People's" answer to the Government Insanity forced up our a**.

Bernie, Bernie, Bernie. I send him advice to buy up a few cement trucks and head to The Border. He could be rich, and the Mexicans are gonna pay him ! He's what I would call A Revolutionary; much like Trump ~ except Bernie is much, much weaker and often succumbs to a desire to please the Elites who exploit (use, take advantage of) Average Americans. If Bernie had gone Pro-Gun - and - said he'd apply EXISTING immigration laws; he could have made it.

Bernie isn't much better really. He was fine with throwing away over a trillion dollars now on the F-35 and he's already stated publicly that our involvements in the many Mideast wars are absolutely necessary. Simply another machine politician although a 'kinder, gentler' one. His biggest failing, however, is that he is almost totally disconnected from the entrenched good ol' boy network that really makes the country run, for better or worse, usually worse. Those guys will run circles around Sanders and lawlessness and corruption will increase exponentially during his administration should he be elected. I believe, perhaps foolishly, that our true leaders, those who could possibly effect change, are hiding and perhaps may never wish to be seen again.
