    There's a lot of shit that's fucked up, and I'm sure that there would indeed be some people who knew in advance that the shit would get fucked up. In fact, some of the people who knew in advance that the shit would get fucked up were the very ones who were planning for the shit to get fucked up, while at the same time, there were also other people who could tell in advance that the shit would end getting fucked up, because they were witness to how the shit was being fucked up by those who were planning to fuck up the shit, in combination with that those who could see the shit getting fucked up also knew that there weren't enough people who cared that shit was getting fucked up.

    So, just to be on the clear side, which fucked-up shit concretely is it that are you talking about?

    Hey donk, so true. Which of these 'some people' are you thinking of?

    Speaking for myself, having dreamt about angry people with guns and weird flags back before the end of W's term, and then dreaming about the capitol being attacked years beforehand, I can say that I knew some people would be fucking shit up. But I couldn't predict names or places. That's a very tricky thing.

    And what good would it do besides myself being able to be prepared in some way? Who's going to take my dreams to heart and act in some way on them other than myself? (and maybe my husband and son)

    It's doubtful anyone would. Dreams and instincts are intangible. I live in a very materialistic culture.


    Bill Barr knew things were fucked up and basically admitted that there wasn't enough of anything to support made-up fraud claims. But he would have if he could have.

    Rumsfeld knew the whole Iraq war was a farce, he knew he was fucking things up. He seemed to be A-OK with that.

    The tobacco companies knew they were lying and fucking up peoples' health.

    The fossil fuel folks know they're fucking things up big-time, whether it's the economy or the environment. But profits over people ensures they won't stop until forced.


    Maybe the question to answer is who isn't fucking things up? Who's trying to stop or prevent or fix or remediate?

    Well my shit was fucked up last week. I had a dream that involved two men and one's wife. It was about my car and a crash. SOOOO ... I drove to Kansas Friday before last and was expecting an issue with my car. I get low on oil sometimes so I brought a couple quarts of oil, in case the light came on. Sure as hell, it did so I stopped and put the quarts in. BUT, I forgot to put the oil cap back on ... ended up frying the alternator and being stranded in the fast lane shoulder in Dallas (up against the concrete divider) for about two and a half hours. It was getting later and cars were driving a little crazier every minute, after all, It was July 4th weekend, A Very Great American holiday. Sure enough, as I was starting to pray, there was a crash bang up the road but relatively minor as freeway crashes go as no one was killed. So shortly thereafter the damn tow truck driver showed up and towed me to a repair shop that he was familiar with. No doubt, it was his brother's business ... e.g. Two Men. The tow truck driver talked me into staying at a hotel rather than trying to rent a car for the rest of the trip. Ok, it sounded good, he drove me to the hotel and as we were pulling in he said something about his wife being there ... I don't know if she worked there or what the hell but anyway ... e.g. the wife. It was a nice hotel and the repair shop did a good job and it only cost me a thousand dollars but at least I escaped alive.

    Just another day in the life of a Beast.

    Just doing the Devil's work! Don't forget the pharmaceutical companies and other cronies too. The Wall Street is one big casino which just benefits the few at the expense of everyone else. Eat the billionaires.

    This world is beyond messed up, that's pretty obvious by now. In US you just have the front row seats to witness the madness. The question is if there's any hope and I'd say that yes, there always is even if the odds don't seem too great and they sure don't. It ain't over till the fat lady sings.

    Well, given that donk still owes us a pointer as to what shit exactly got fucked up, we can only guess what this thread is about. But given that you're all circling about the topic of US politics again, I'll play along and mention that Abby Martin has a new documentary coming up, to which she (or possibly Mike Prysner) uploaded a trailer in the last 24 hours....

    I tried to focus on issues...unnecessary war, petroleum and the environment, tobacco, which certainly involve politics.

    Barr is just such a good example of deliberately fucking things up again and again and getting away with it again and again. He goes back to Nixon.


    My son and I were talking about the environment. I said that something will happen to get people active. He said he's afraid it's going to be something that kills a couple million people in order for us to get off our asses.

    He may be right.

    Sadly, if I tried to show this preview to many of my family members they'd start discussing what's wrong with me. The message would never be heard. And there isn't even any strife over issues. We haven't fought over Trump or the insurrection or anything.

    But folks do have their heads firmly in the sand which feels so very safe.

    This shit is so fucked up, truly. Climate chaos, political chaos, illegal aliens...the ones in tic tacs. (couldn't ever imagine those two would come up in the same sentence) I was just thinking about this shit today. What exactly is motivating the power hungry? I mean, what beliefs do they hold, other than wanting more power?

    You have the technocratic elite who seem to be all for the singularity. Then there's the Christian hard right in power and those angling for power who want to bring on the rapture. Remember that belief? The worse it gets on earth, the sooner Jesus will reappear and make it all better or rapture believers or whatever the fuck he's supposed to do.

    So environmentalism be fucked. Who cares? As far as they're concerned the worse it gets (for everybody but them, of course) the better it gets. How the fuck do you reason with people like that? They have a completely inverted and profoundly unChristian value system....but they are anti-abortion.....SCREAM!!!

    Add to all this, the alien presence is intensifying and the disclosure movement, imho, is being dictated by THEM, whoever they are. Now, in more normal times, that would be the most insane statement, but we live in a world where even more outrageous ideas are accepted without question.

    So these three social cultural environmental and off world (for lack of better terms) realities are intensifying, synergizing and intersecting all. at. the. same. time.

    I think most of us are big picture thinkers, but exactly how far do you have to step back to get a proper fix on all of this?

    *Swearing for the purpose of consistency!

    PS....and oh, I forgot the pandemic! Too much shit happening!

    Perhaps Seniora' is more appropriate, as that shit sounds like a compliment
