Again With The Why (Not “Y”… Yet)

Why would someone choose the Model 3 over the Chevy Bolt? The Bolt is available now (at least on the West Coast) and has a 200+ mile range. Again, it comes down to these few but critically important differences for me.

Save It

Ya see, folks, Bannon may actually be a strategic genius. The more he gets people stirred up and upset over everything that he’s doing, the more people get fatigued that much faster and the sooner they give up and give in. “Fuck it,” people say. The farther Left you are, the faster you get exhausted, which is exactly what he wants.

My advice is: pick one cause about which you care the most, and FIGHT FOR THAT WITH EVERYTHING YOU’VE GOT. Deprioritize everything else and quite possibly you should turn off the news and newspapers and TV. They’re strategically using it to their advantage — like I said, genius!

My cause is global climate change. I’m doing everything I can because, quite frankly, if we don’t have an inhabitable planet, there will be — literally — nothing left to fight for. I will speak up on those issues not because I do not believe in the others, but because I must be able to hang in the fight for as long as possible.

“Excellent…”

That is what I imagine Steve Bannon is thinking in his head as he watches the establishment start to crumble down around him. He’s no fool. He is a smart, strategic person who — unfortunately for us — does not represent the most positive aspects of America. And, as a double whammy, he’s basically in charge of the whole country. Trump is his fool and he knows it. Bannon’s playing him like … some kind of ancient instrument that you breathe into and out comes a lot of hot air and loud, unpleasant noise.

Anyway, here are my predictions for the future. Continue reading ““Excellent…””

UPS (Mis)delivery: Public Shaming, Part III

So Amazon customer service is excellent. Over chat and the course of 15 minutes, they refunded my lost shipment, I placed a new order with 1-day shipping, and they promised to refund the cost of the expedited shipping on the new order.

Milo Yiannopoulos Doesn’t Have Feelings – The New York Times

It’s sadly ironic to see UC Berkeley, of all places, protesting somebody like Milo. Then again, the right to protest is also a matter of free speech, so long as it is done peacefully.

Anyway, I think this guy is great: a funny, intelligent, provocateur. He’s well suited to getting a younger generation to introspect a bit on free speech. His literary style isn’t subtle, but it is appropriate for the audience. I just think that his talents are being wasted at a place like Breitbart, which doesn’t attract the readership that would appreciate him the most. Then again, it could be the perfect place for him….
