Below is my take on the U.S. “debt ceiling battle.”
(Audio duration: 8:14)
(Since I mention ten percent inflation, a quick note: Since early 2021, at any given time, prices have been rising five to ten percent more than what the Government admits to. We all see that. When I say it’s ten percent today, here in the USA, that’s based on my own, recent personal experience, not some ridiculous Government number.)
You want to understand “asymmetry“?
I recorded the below audio…..
…..more than a couple of days ago.
It’s not new…..
But, nothing has changed.
When I say “weekend“…..
…..I mean the last one (May 6-7th)…..
…..not this one.
Here’s why I recorded it:
The USA is making clear…..
…..through its State Media…..
…..(Amazon Post, NY Times, Politico, CNN, etc., and I’d include WSJ as State Media, even if it’s not entirely Democrat…..)
…..that a full-scale Ukraine war…..
…..CANNOT continue beyond this year.
I am VERY surprised…..
…..that so many smart people…..
…..in my audience…..
…..have NOT picked up…..
…..on this AT ALL.
It may be that…..
…..the U.S. Government’s “cues” on this matter…..
…..as conveyed in our State Media…..
…..have not yet reached Europe…..
…..and been sufficiently digested…..
…..in the local media.
Anyway, I hope this clears things up.

The U.S. Border:
Too Bad, So Sad
My webmaster, email system manager, audiovisual editor, friend and mentor…..
…..thinks I missed the real story…..
…..on this one.
The real story, being…..
That the Democrats…..
…..the U.S. southern border…..
…..so as to bring in millions…..
…..of future Democrat voters.
All costs be damned!
That this will change the country…..
Who would argue that?
I don’t care.
It’s not the story…..
…..that I’m interested in.
Over many years…..
…..(whose donors want cheap labor)…..
…..and millions of Republican voters…..
…..ALLOWED this to happen.
I mean, supposedly…..
…..we’re a democracy, right?
…..unless The People will it…..
…..or at least, ALLOW it to happen.
I was LAUGHING…..
…..at the ISIS craze…..
Because I could see…..
We had a Spanish ISIS on our border.
To my Republican readers:
What about you?
Sure, as a Republican voter…..
…..you can say…..
“Hey, I wasn’t given a choice.”
“The Establishment doesn’t listen to me.”
But how about…..
You take a look in the mirror?
If you got CONNED…..
By the ISIS story…..
Like a cat chasing a laser dot…..
YOU were part of the problem.
If you got conned and distracted…..
…..by a LOT of things…..
You were (are) the problem.
There are STILL Republicans reading me…..
…..who cheer for Brandon-McConnell’s war…..
Now, it’s just too late.
…..being changed irreversibly…..
That’s ALREADY happened…..
More than once.
The USA is OBVIOUSLY…..
…..NOT the country it was…..
…..(with an 1890 population of around 63 million)…..
The USA accepted…..
…..roughly a million immigrants…..
…..for ten years.
Most of them…..
…..(I’m generalizing, but again, most of them)…..
…..from southern and eastern Europe.
And, the modern…..
…..”urban” Democrat party…..
(BTW, there are photos from the famous “How the Other Half Lives” by Jacob Riis, showing homeless immigrants sleeping at police stations. Much like, today’s headlines. That book was published in 1890, with photos from mostly the late 1880’s, so I’m sure things got much worse, further into the 1890s.)
The country hasn’t been the same, since.
So, it’s happened before.
But again, I don’t care.
Manny’s still half-into it…..
Because he thinks…..
…..that voting Republican…..
…..(as much as it hurts to do so)…..
…..will SLOW the drift…..
…..into a de facto one-party state.
It doesn’t matter anymore.
(The Establishment GOP’s response to Tucker Carlson’s “1/6” revelations, the Ukraine, and many other issues, prove that we already have a “uniparty.” The Republicans are just a token opposition, like the communist’s in today’s Russia.)
If Republicans want to be extinct…..
I don’t care.
(Worst case, I’ll have to wrap up this blog, which means I’ll have a lot more time for other things.)

Please give me a financial pat on the back, make this all worth my time, here.
If you haven’t already, and you’re not conceptually opposed to the medium, please sign up to my Twitter.
Please also familiarize yourself with my almost-new, rationalized, concise Comments Policy, below. It applies to everyone, including YOU. I hate to have to delete comments, but, sadly, I do it all the time.
I really appreciate good comments. Many people come back here, in-between posts, just to read the comments. If you help me entertain them, you’re my hero. A few rules: This is not a chat board. Your comment must primarily, largely involve and directly touch upon something that, or someone whom, I wrote about in the post you’re commenting on. Life reminiscences (if relevant), relating your relevant personal experiences, your job, your commie college girlfriend, your idiot family members, your Ukrainian coworker, etc., if relevant, are all HIGHLY encouraged. The most interesting content here… is YOU. The only exceptions to the on-topic requirement, are if you’re calling attention to a technical problem with the site, or briefly stating how much you love the content or this Comments Policy. Don’t try to “legitimize” an off-topic comment by throwing in some little pre-thought or afterthought about what I wrote. NO DISCUSSIONS THAT STRAY FROM MY TOPICS. My topics are the only common denominator here, and while it may amuse you, most readers have no interest in your thoughts on the Punic wars, or on some guy named Serge or whatever; it’s your way to kill your own time, but it adds no value for others. Which means, if you’re responding to someone else’s comment, your response must still relate directly to one of my topics. Doesn’t matter how much you generously donated, these rules apply equally to everyone. 350 word limit, no exceptions, 351 words won’t be published, sorry. No rambling. If you’re not sure what “rambling” is, ask yourself, “Are others likely to enjoy reading my comment, or am I merely jerking off“? Nazis, commies, worshipful groupies of Mercouris/Johnson/etc., Jew baiters/haters, FBI agents-provocateurs, guys who forgot to take their Ritalin, passive-aggressive needling of the sysop or of other commenters, random questions that have no bearing on what I wrote, no-punctuation writing by the smartphone generation, silly “Nadsat” lingo picked up from “The Saker” website, and autistic bitching about the satanic USA and its evil pedo pervert elites and how they must be killed (or other bile in that vein), will not be tolerated. If you’ve got issues, this is not your “let it go” zone. Don’t write anything here, that your therapist wouldn’t approve of. Thank you!
