Forum Post: Our Right Wing Cozens

Who uses the truth, or an only slightly bent version of it, to lie? The strategic omissions and dis-orderings of dissemblers may never contain absolute falsehoods. Those who, often consciously, deceive by such puerile manipulations don't consider themselves to be liars. They think they're more clever than the fools they cozen. Don't kid yourself. Sociopaths and psychopaths like the Wall St Oligarchs and the conservative/libertarians who serve them think we're all stupid and therefore deserving of whatever they want to do or say to profit by our hard work.

"... The right wing for decades has invested small fortunes in clever packaging, like denigrating social programs as 'entitlements' and depicting the unnecessary and costly privatization as 'public-private partnerships'" Yves Smith

The cons insist that progressive ideas like shortening the work week to reduce stress, carbon footprints, sick days and mental health problems are too expensive. All such issues are framed negatively by the right and most Americans have been conditioned to accept the lies. The reality is slowly being exposed: conservatives are self destructive fools and they're killing us all by their stupidity.

See the linked article and pass on the wake-up call here, there and everywhere. "... it was reported that Microsoft Japan tested out a four-day week and found that it boosted productivity by 40%..." - https://www.nakedcapitalism.com/2019/11/how-misleading-economic-analysis-is-corrupting-our-democracy.html

This ingrained privilege of republicans bending social norms for their personal benefit, gets them in trouble, but “ they see nothing wrong here” https://www.rollingstone.com/politics/politics-news/trump-ukraine-aid-personal-gain-931995/

Kumquat diplomacy may work.

My Mom made me eat Sunkist(R) oranges from California and brush my teeth with Colgate(R) toothpaste with the mark "Made in U.S.A." One day, my Big Brother brought me a few small oranges from her to share with me. I ate oranges by sucking the juice out of them after Mom's having cut them into slices or peeled their skins.

My Big Brother asked me whether I would like him to peel the skins off of them first ( unusually nice of him!) I answered, "yes," so he did. I bit into the peeled one, sucked, and grimaced. There wasn't much juice but it was extremely sour!

Then I noticed that he was eating the peeled skin! He explained.

"Things are not always what they seem." If you've just jumped through "the Looking Glass," that you've got to know. Giuliani was deadly due to his not thinking through to the consequences first. Happy New Year!

The quickest and surest way to unite squabbling brothers is to confront them with a common enemy. When both sides are staring at each others' eyes and ready to destroy each other, Martian tripods ( our Martian rovers have six wheels, not three or four, but why? think about gait and stability ) suddenly shooting death rays at both will unite them fast in a common front. Having eaten Asian/Ring-of-Fire kumquat or California Sunkist(R) orange matters not. Texass is a big enough ass that I can kiss and be shielded under it.

There can be many ready-to-be-assembled parts for nuclear weapons subject to mutual inspections without actually having "nuclear weapons." Pakistan doesn't actually have "nuclear weapons" so everyone should be glad due to its location near or under many terrorist or potential terrorist groups. Pakistan can "protect" Saudi Arabia despite its not having any ready-to-be-fired nuclear weapons at hand. Pakistan has many very strong and maybe even unsavory neighbors with extremely strong authoritarian and conquering inclinations. In response, Pakistan has a very large and populous army to protect its sovereignty. Countries with different religions and ideologies shouldn't be forced to live together cheek-to-jowl unless they agree to and do uphold the First Amendment.

There is absolutely no reconciliation possible between religious peoples who feel revulsion at the others' animal-eating habits unless they make changes. Some revere cows (Hindus) but others (Americans, Russians, Europeans, Japanese, Oceanians, Brazilians, Hispanics, devotees of McDonald's, Burger King's, Wendy's, and "Outback" restaurants) eat cows. Some eat many pigs (Chinese, Europeans { especially Danes and Germans, } Americans, etc.) but others (Orthodox Jews) consider pigs as being "unclean." Some eat cats and others love them (Americans, Europeans { especially Russians,} Chinese) Some eat dogs (some Koreans and some Chinese "southerners" { who are diversified and balanced-diet OMNIvores } or whom the dominant class { including thin "White" kid-napping-and-pussy-grabbling-loving Jacksonians } called "country folks") but others consider dogs (Inuits, Americans, Europeans, Chinese) as helpers or friends. A burlap sack was draped over the dog's head. Then its legs and muzzle were tied up and the sack was pulled over its entire body and securely tied up. Then people beat it hard with sticks like a doggie piñata to tenderize it. There was much whining, wheezing, yelping, barking, etc. coming from the dog-to-dog-meat-conversion pound during the nighttime slaughter. The dogs' barks and calls were infectious so there was doggy commotion. I read that Koreans eat dogs so they should culturally know what's being said.

Savagely beating the dog got its heart pumping hard and fast so its blood flowed amply through its body, even through capillary blood vessels. "Life is in the blood" so the dog's meat was infused with life. This was supposed to make the dog-meat delicious, tender, and more nutritious for nurturing life.

There are gun-toting "roast-pork bun pushers in a mosque" in East Turkestan.

Be sure to hold their feet to the fire so that they must constantly worry about the choices they have made.

Fed Criminal Code:

“Whoever, knowing that an offense against the United States has been committed, receives, relieves, comforts or assists the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment, is an accessory after the fact.”
