Is something missing or have I just not had enough caffeine today?
Great, now all my nightmares are going to be dominated by businessmen with dollar signs where their eyes should be. Oh wait, that already happened.
If you find yourself wondering what's going on, the issues last 24hrs and die for you.
If you are 30yrs old today, you have heard the same conservative voices opine their superiorty in all things turned out to be very consistant, constantly wrong!
They seem to constantly be explaining why they were really right dispite the reality to the contrary.
I wonder why somebody would not recognize this obivious point?
They always seem only to become more popular with the networks, and richer for their failures on the issues.
So true. After changing ISPs, I am amazed to find out the level of fraud, shuck and jive that goes on with both Comcast and QWest. "The game" has become so pervasive that I'm am really starting to wonder if it's possible to not be daily mauled by it. It is invading my hermitage and I simply refuse to live like that. I can imagine a day, not to far off, when suicide is the best progressive option. De-evolution in progress. If you're stupid enough and insentient enough to take it you live and reproduce. Just like all other domesticated species.
As an aside, the drawing seems to bear a resemblance to Steve Novick.
It depends what questions you are asking and the model you're fitting the answers to. There are so many self-validating assumptions in the "standard model" of society that few red flags are ever raised.
Actually, I think the situation is much, much worse. I don't think the $$$ enter into it much, as a bottom line goal. Basically, the bottom line isn't the bottom line, ego is. I don't watch any TV, but I would bet that few of those apprentice type programs use objective measures to judge performance. It's all about presence and how you play and who you play with and how you look doing it. Big corps don't go after the nice, little ones because they want every dime. They're lazy and don't want their example in the marketplace. Ask any marketer where money fits in. It's a nice to have, but job one is pillaging the competition, having your way with their women and hearing the wails of defeated. But, then, that's MOST Americans. It's much easier to talk about the wealthy 1%, believe average folks are OK. Wall Street greed? Some, but mostly stupidity, and that extends right down to the couch potato that consciously deludes himself deciding to refinance based on the advice of a former sports figure.
A crap education system and Hollywood showing us the impossible as possible and the unworkable as workable have created one big factory farm called the USA. Should be United Subservient Animals. Of course the Brits do much better on all accounts, and seem to have ended up pretty much the same, so I'm not discounting the puppeteers pulling the strings' importance to the result.
