Having given up on being employed as far back as 2001 gives worst-writer a different perspective on unemployment stats-- from 2020 (or so). Indeed, dear worst-reader. As you struggle through the $hitshow that you call a career, heed this: your days aren't just numbered, they ran out a long time ago--and you're riding on borrowed … Continue reading Better Truth: Half US Unemployed
When you've failed-upward this long and this far... it's too late to face the/any truth--and thereby hope you can turn things around--as in turn things toward a better outcome. Blah. Blah. Blah. Or... That's what's missing from the recent and brilliant realisation from a billionaire claiming to have the answer(s) for all the fail-upwardness of … Continue reading Too Late
Earned vs. un-earned income? Ain't that the ticket this dreary Monday, dear worst-reader? Either that or it might be finally time to hand in the towel--as opposed to throw in the towel. Wait. Maybe we (you know, rational thinking humanoids) have already been handed the towel. Or has the towel been taking away? Enough about … Continue reading Still Not Enough (Knowledge) To Go Round
The ghosts of all the LOL I expelled from my person that night as I counted the electoral college numbers Election Day November 2016, surround me still. For don't you know, dear worst-reader, my giggles are not out of spite but instead out of tear-jerk-laughter. Oh yes my fellow and bereaved #Americant brethren. You are … Continue reading The Many More Layers Of Bad That Can Still Be Peeled Away
Re: Canada Real Estate China Dear Old Friend, FYI, I can’t access the article you sent because 1) I use adblockers at the client level and 2) I use adblockers at the DNS level (pi-hole.net). But I was able to read the title of the article and the first few lines—which is all one needs … Continue reading Correspondance: Money Laundering
Subtitle: "Democracy In Chains" By Nancy MacLean Goes Seriously Deep Into What Makes #Americant Stupider Not Greater. She took me deeper, dear worst-reader. This historian, this professor-type person that writes books--and she can take you deep, too. That is, if you're at all inclined to go deep. Especially the kind of deep that involves figuring … Continue reading Pseudo Review – 2: How Deep Do The Unpeeled Layers Of Your Rotten Onion Go?
Let us begin, dear worst-reader, with a worst-writer transcription from a great movie. Sometimes I get a kick out of doing this sort of thing. It has something to do with my love of typing. Here's another one, if you dare. The reason I chose the movie Trading Places for this post, by-the-buy, is because, … Continue reading Pork Bellies, Wives And The Real Fake Newz
What is it that makes #Americant? I mean, what is the thing or things that enable and facilitate the race to the bottom empire that is my beloved and missed United Mistakes? Probably at the top of the list is war mongering. And not just any war mongering. The fact that perpetual war is being … Continue reading Does History Repeat Slowly, Panickly Or Trumply? Predicting Your Great Depression v2.0
Subtitle: The Body Of An Email Never Sent? Exchanges with an old friend about the system we all must live in is getting brighter and brighter, dear worst-reader. Or maybe not. After attempting to part a few worst-words about Marx to my old friend who believes with all his heart that capitalism is alive and … Continue reading Giving Marx A Try Or How I Found Solace In Failing Upwards And Enjoying Pseudo-Communist Poetry
In order to cope with the two Ms (monotony & mendacity) of growing up in Suburban Hell of my beloved #Americant, I participated--at the duress of my broken family--in two organised sport activities. One of those activities was tennis. And, if I recall correctly, I was actually ranked within the top-100 players of my state … Continue reading Hey Comrade! My School Of Greed Is Gonna Kick Your School Of Greed’s A$$
How do you regulate consumption? The consumer is the backbone of the greed economy. No wonder we all have back pain, eh. Yet we also live in a system that has found a way to protect the riches of great-great grandparents. Indeed. Long dead stupid white people have inherited their wealth to offspring that are … Continue reading Maybe Put A Label On It Instead Of Enabling A Bimbo To Sing Put A Ring On The Heart Of Suckers Born Every Minute
"For example (and thanks to Doug Korty for this point), the total deficits of the federal government from 1950 to 2009 were $6.6 trillion. During those years, three Republican presidents (Ronald Reagan, George H. W. Bush, and George W. Bush) accounted for the vast majority of those deficits. All the other presidents (Harry Truman, Dwight … Continue reading The Looking Mirror Avoided
What is the first casualty of war, dear worst-reader? That's right. The truth. Ever wonder how all those bankers, especially the pions that do all the work for banks and Wall Street, how they think about the lies they are telling? Obviously they justify what they do with the knowledge that they are, indeed, at war. Ever see … Continue reading The First Casualty Of The War Of The Lie Of Your Mind On Steroids Times 65 Gazillion But Don’t Worry Your House Of Cards Is Still Standing
What has #eurowasteland done for you lately, dear worst-reader? Well, the answer is simple. Nothing. Or. Put another way. At least it hasn't given us another fcuking world war. It behooves me to say something about recent farcical election in France--that so many are comparing to the recent farcical election of my beloved #americant but because … Continue reading Time To Celebrate Europe With French Vote? Not. Time For Some Lily Livered Lefties.
"Much as warlords seized land in the Norman Conquest and levied rent on subject populations (starting with the Domesday Book, the great land census of England and Wales ordered by William the Conqueror), so today's financialized mode of warfare uses debt leverage and foreclosure to prey away land, natural resources and economic infrastructure. The commons … Continue reading Neofeudalism Defined For The Little Man? I Mean The Little Mind?
Freedom? Ok. Let's define it. (Long pause. Think. Continue pause.) Money? Travel? Beauty & Fashion (as per Melania Trump's RNC speech)? In my quest to misunderstand this worst-world we must all live in, I periodically read a book or three about economics. Most of these books usually carry a bit of narration with them and … Continue reading Welcome To The Pseudo Science Of Your World, Your Pocket Book, Your Mind
Fascinating but winded article. I suppose that's why writers for The New Yorker get paid the big bucks. With that in mind, the article linked to below is a doozy. Just when I thought Citizens United had created an ideological political Autobahn to hell paid for by the über-rich that would lead my beloved #ameircant … Continue reading Pathology 101: #Americant Greed Galore Times Three
Listening to comrade Wolff again. Luv this nutty professor. And that says a lot. Of all the teachers I've had in this (my) useless-eater life, few (if any) teachers have left an impression on me. And that's an odd thing to admit if you consider the fact that by the time I was finished with … Continue reading Hammer Sickle Podcast
Seriously. I just dented my refrigerator. I hit it. Right out of the blue I hit my fridge as though it were taunting me, as though it were asking for it. Yes. That's exactly what happened. It (my fridge) was taunting me like a sheep-lamb in hell that recites Milton's Paradise lost and Redd Foxx's last … Continue reading May Um Save The Planet Um
Not sure why I care about this. But I do. Having said that... Having grown up in the suburban hell of lower middle class #americant and now hearing academics describe (that) hell's demise, I sit back with a dopey grin on my face and sing the lost torrent song that was once an anthem, an … Continue reading It's Like The Moon Disappearing. If The Middle Class Joins It, Will You Miss It?
Get a load of some of these stats, dear worst-reader. There are times when even I, the grand stat-viewer, milk some tears when I read such things. And as we know, my tears are not like those of mermaids. Indeed. There will be no cure for these ails. So let's just run down to reality … Continue reading The Working Poor Shall Inherit The Earth
https://youtu.be/mzp7NiI0SUU It is astonishing to hear/read stuff like this. Man, does this guy (vid) nail it. In fact, Hudson just about sums up the whole shebang in a few words within a fifteen minute video. Most important part of the interview, in worst-writer's opinion, is in the quote below. Reading about Monday's "stock crash" because … Continue reading American Economy = Debt Deflation
As an Aussteiger and high-flyer I have the privilege of being both a witness and a passenger. Don't blame me, dear worst-reader, for having found the formula for comfort and pseudo-luxury--which, btw, I found before I turned fifty. Also, don't ask me how it's done. Just keep this in mind, the luxury of being worst-writer found me … Continue reading The Willing
Why is it that Neo-liberals aka followers of Milton Friedman are obsessed with government spending? I ask the question because I recently saw a video of Friedman blathering about his concept of a voucher school system (yeah, just google it) and that was somehow compounded when I read a few moments later that the United … Continue reading Voucher Me This
And now, dear worst-reader, let's take a moment and give a listen to how the other part of the western world's pseudo-democracies are viewing z'Germans. "For the German people and their leader to work out a political strategy that has them encouraging people to think of southern Europeans as lazy and not working and somehow … Continue reading Whoa!
