You can’t slap the lil darlings (SJW is a highly contagious disease). You can’t talk sense to them. You can’t kill them. But what you CAN do as a responsible grown-up (which we hold our readers to be), you can point out that their world is every bit as much a construct – a fiction – as much as the holodeck on StarTrek was.
If it was just one area of “highly stupid” it wouldn’t be so bad. But you’ve got a growing number of factual situations evolving around you…and well, some of us grown-ups just want to shake the snot out from between their ears.
Here’s a short list: With one of two Urban readers who are M’s, most millennials are generally wrong on Trump, wrong on Bitcoin, wrong on social justice, wrong on climate change…well, that’s a good list to begin with…
Let’s start with Trump: He’s going head to head with Mueller’s witch hunt and here we are, more than a year after the start of this fiasco and here’s the honest-to-gawd facts:
- No collusion has been found. ONE WHOLE YEAR LATER. No charges have been brought involving collusion with Russia.
- Turns out the “Trump dossier” was bought and paid for by Hillary supporters..
- Bernie was screwed out of a fair run for the Office. By his sold out party.
- Hillary skated on emails because it appears the highest levels of the FBI ‘had the fix in’ to exonerate her, even before she was questioned.
- Since this ain’t political, anymore, (we’re into Treason country now) we look for the former FBI Director to be in the hot seat week after next because he’s got some explaining to do because…
- A couple of FBI top level people referred to a Secret Society that was out to subvert the agenda of the duly elected president…Who was in it? The media left is trying to bury the story with fast-talking but no evidence.
- Oh, yeah, and Obama may have been in on the abuse of the nation’s intelligence communithy (demasking etc) so that’s still out there several months ahead.
- In the meantime, A SECOND special prosecutor may be in the works to investigate Mueller.
- And the MainStreamMedia leaders (like Drudge which now verges on mainstream) are gently breaking it to their audiences in slow-motion so as not to wake up too many Millennials at once.
- And Trump says that fighting back (against what hasn’t resulted in a single Russia-related charge yet) is NOT OBSTRUCTION.
Which is why the little snowflakes need to be seriously shaken. Where’s the beef?
Whew! That’s gotta be a hard one to swallow…poor little darlings.
If one Millennial Delusion isn’t enough, let’s see how Bitcoin is playing out after going through what sure looks to us like the classic blow-off of a Tulip Mania-like speculative bubble: Go look at the red ‘X’ above the word “TODAY” in this chart.
The usual rules of Technical Analysis still work. And our estimates remain unchanged. If this is a three wave down move, then we might see a bottom in the 5,000 range. If it goes five waves, then 463 to 850 still seems in play to our simple-minded view of things.
Repeat after the old man: Ain’t no free lunch. Ponzi went to prison, Iraqi dinars didn’t make many rich, and what about that oil-backed currency story? Oh, yeah…having Venezuela (a phony government adopting phony money) is not exactly a credible concept to the grownups who’ve seen it all before.
I could toss in how long it has been since the Great Society was kicked off in 1964 and we still have the same poverty levels in America…but I don’t want to do all the discovering for you.
A Lesson About Fads
Contrary to what the two-bit would-be scamolutionaries of social just-us would have you believe, America is not a fascist country. We are a Faddist country. (Linguistic acuity sucks among the text-crave button pressing apes.) Fads. Shit comes, shit goes. We get over it. Move on.
Hoola Hoops came and mostly went. Frisbees survive as Disk Golf. CB Radio came, went, and that part of the radio spectrum is still mostly useless unless like Andy you’re pushing 18-gears of a big rig…and channel 17 is much better out over-the-road than in town…
Diets are a whole fad industry. Supplements verge on it…since few people actually do rigorous daily personal data collection. (I really do measure BP, urine Ph and other factors daily…mean you don’t?)
Pet Rocks…remember them?
Being a Faddist Nation (not fascist…you shake-needing idiots!) we have fads in all the major areas of life.
Housing had a fad called suburban homes which begot MacMansions which dropped in price when a few of the smarter apes figured time commuting was unproductive, useless, and health-endangering. They moved back to town which is why no one can afford Seattle or the South Bay without a yuge options package at hiring time…
Transportation has fads. Remember the ’66 Mustang fad? Elaine caught the cute blonde in her Corvette fad – and before that the green Dodge Charger with a hemi fad…
Food has fads. Speaking of which did you see the SJW. veganistas are trying to scam through a meat tax? What’s their beef?
Just this morning, I was reading how the humble sandwich was being linked to global warming – which is a double-dose of bullshit…really. FMTT.
Genuine environmentalists (like Allan Savory) are crusading for high-intensity grazing to restore grass lands (which, oh, BTW will cool the planet). But you don’t hear much about responsible agriculture except for the lefties in the social movements who don’t own farms and don’t live out here in the woods.
What they HAVE done is discovered that environimental causes are a great way to raise money from the (shake them, would you?_) dumb millennials. (It’s on FB is must be true…right?)
At the risk of offending some intolerant vegan, may I mention breakfast today was a small 4-ounce filet mignon sandwich, coffee, and my morning rasher of vitamins before work…and I feel just great. Cabbage soup tomorrow, spaghetti tonight…yum….
BTW: One of my supplements if coconut oil…see MCT for more concentrated results. People need water (not millennial coffees) and they need protein… Science says, so we consume lots of both. Point is a balanced diet is why we have lived so long and well…sheesh.
Where was I?
Oh that: We believe climate has been undergoing slow-motion warming since the ice sheets began to pull back. Sea level was 300 feet lower, then. Unjiggered data shows it clearly.
It will also continue to rise. Also no doubt.
The point around here is not that global (glacial rate) change doesn’t happen – of course it does.
But charlatans – who are trying to set up global climate taxes, and idiots who negotiated one set of pollution standards for US, now, but letting the rest of the world skate for a decade or longer…sold us out. That’s just plain wrong.
Besides, no one has explained WHAT CLIMATE CHANGE MONEY WILL BUY???
Think clearly (if my rabid denial hasn’t reduced you to a sobbing heap by now): If I gave you $1,000, what would you buy that would measurably impact climate? Buy a regulation? Unproven and with only made up computer models that have been failing to predict right for 30 years?
OK, how about $1-million, then?
You following? YOU CAN’T BUY AN ANSWER. All the hopeless hype and BS is all because of cow farts ain’t science. If I offer to pay shills to write reports and put initials after their names, I can buy any position you want supported “by science.”
Read on heat islands. Look at climate data outside of urban areas…climate change is a fund-raising scam. Climate is rising…has been for centuries. But this? More social control and fear mongering.
What we need is a fiber-connected, more dispersed country…not everyone moving to Seattle.
The Obamanists began this by mainly funding pro-warming studies – and when Warming was outed as a scamunist plot, it morphed into climate change and the fund-raising monkeys continued to cash in.
We are Climate Real: We own and live on a USDA registered farm. We raise trees. We are in the carbon collection business. Worse, UrbanSurvival has been solar powered since 2008 long before the fads and hysteria of the masses was funded into hyperdrive.
Go rural – there’s still room out here, kids.
Here’s the reality, kiddies:
Most of what you see in the news: I don’t care whether it’s the left agenda of smuggling in more people to America, those dim-witted mayors who are going to boycott the White House – whoever.
Fact is: We need new business. Gender is news because it has been made fungible. Climate is news because it’s been made fungible. Social extremism has been made fungible (with a special nod to FB and Twits for that).
EVERY THING IS A BUSINESS MODEL.
(Shake these idiots until they get it!)
We have run out of “easy” business models because we allowed American industry to be job-jacked overseas. Trump has started to bring a little bit of it back.
But if you want a career as a MAKER, not a cheap street organizer for a living, you might want to figure out which side your bread is buttered on. Make to be Great. Invent to be Great. Read your history: who’s in it? Makers and Doers, not whiners.
Us old people – who invented all the tech you young whipper-snappers take for granted – we were (and still are ) MAKERS.
Dow futures are up a hundred. If you don’t know what that means, you need to put down those time-sink causes making others rich – get off your ass and get to work on yourself a bit more.
Another shake the road?
Moron the ‘morrow…
