No Longer a Labor of Love

It's no longer needed, either. 

What led to the theme and beginning of this post was Ken Walsh of the US News & World Report on C-Span Washington Journal this morning, bemoaning all the fake news on Internet. The show gets a gets caller from Kentucky (Democrat) who says he's getting rid of his dish because doesn't like the TV news. They ask where going to get news then, he says Internet!!! Then the boo-hoo-hoo from Walsh that this is the problem! No one believes the ma$$ media anymore. Ha-ha-ha-ha!  

Well, they have no one to blame but themselves! Too many lies for far too long, be they lies that led to wars, lone gunmen nonsense, cover-up crap, or simple $elf-$erving $h**! 

Or perhaps I should be happy and jumping for joy when I get two phrases of truth wrapped around eliti$t in$ult from the New York Times:

"The income gap in the United States has turned into a chasm [with a] growing number of poor students and families in the United States."


"The typical US household saw its net worth actually decline 1.2 percent from 2010 to 2013....

Incomes for the highest-earning 1 percent of Americans soared 31 percent from 2009 through 2012....

And after 30 years of skyrocketing income inequality, the top 1 percent now control a bigger share of wealth than they have since FDR, [and] not only are the rich getting richer — they’re getting taxed less, too."

Those are old, I know, so how about recent times?

US income gap widened last year as top 1 percent gained most

That's Obama's economy, folks! And yet somehow we are told his approval is up and the economy has been in recovery for years.

Populist backlash against trade dominates chatter at G-20 summit

That is not the picture I saw!!

Good thing I live in deep blue Ma$$achu$etts:

Few states match Mass. in income inequality

It's all because of Bo$ton, "to be sure!"

(the definition of to be sure is used to concede the truth of something that conflicts with another point that one wishes to make) 

What more is left to say regarding the pre$$?

The Death of Corporate Governance 

It's the $ame even in the corporate world, or have you not $een the balance sheets?

The Death of Labor

Been buried for years now.

Time too look forward to Chri$tmas.

"US banks’ earnings in the April-June period rose 1.4 percent from a year earlier as growth in lending fueled interest income. The data issued Tuesday by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. showed continued strength in the banking industry eight years after the financial crisis struck. However, the impact of low oil prices on energy companies led banks to continue to post bigger losses on commercial and industrial loans. The FDIC reported that US banks earned $43.6 billion in the second quarter, up from $43 billion a year earlier. It marks a record profit for the industry. About 60 percent of banks reported an increase in profit from a year earlier."

This after I've been told poor, poor banks for months (looks like GM got its wish, too).

"The broader economy has averaged a tepid annual growth rate of less than 1 percent."

The surest sign of a depression:

The latest stocks to fade are consumer-staples stocks

You know, the very things you need to live! 

If the American people are not buying those....

Thanks for the memories, Globe.


Taking from the top....

"US intelligence and law enforcement agencies are investigating what they see as a broad covert Russian operation in the United States to sow public distrust in the presidential election and in US political institutions, intelligence and congressional officials said. The aim is to understand the scope and intent of the Russian campaign, which incorporates cybertools to hack systems used in the political process, enhancing Russia’s ability to spread disinformation."

OMG, look who is talking! 

Furthermore, regarding election fraud here in the U.S., WhereTF has the pre$$ been all this time? All these years their job has been to legitimize stolen elections. Now they are screeching about the possibility? Something stinks in the land of shit-shoveling!

Then I'm told "the intelligence community is not saying it has ‘‘definitive proof’’ of such tampering, but...." 

They have learned nothing from Iraq and WMD, are so delusional they think we still believe, or simply don't care because they are nothing more than an organ of propaganda.

You would have to be smoking something to want to read any of it.

Sunday Globe Swan Song

After outfitting myself with three new notebooks and two sets of pens I find myself 13 days behind blogging without having read a Globe since the end of August, and with football beginning next weekend I will no longer be blogging on Sundays after today.

I'm tired of the magic act anyway (in case you haven't noticed), so skipping the class reunion and forgetting the farm story is of no consequence. If you were hoping for more, I'm, how do we say it, incurious, yes, that is a good word for it, about what is in the Globe these days. Time for a permanent vacation from that pos.

It's not that I don't care about the nation or the world; I do very much. I just don't care for the version presented and promoted by a propaganda mouthpiece for $tate authority that is a proven liar at worst, distorter and obfuscater at best. If I want to find some semblance of what is really happening in the greater world at large I need to go somewhere else.

On the other hand, I am no longer interested at all in the goings on in the city. It's none of my businessimho. It's not even entertaining anymore.

And you didn't see this coming?
