Sometimes life just gets so busy, even for someone who has nowhere to go or be at any particular time (that would be me of course). So busy that important things get missed sometimes.
And so it was, that I came to miss this week’s fine word picture weekly episode from Jim Kunstler’s Clusterfuck Nation blog, which as usual came out on Tuesday (Australian time), and which carries the title Between the Loathsome and the Unspeakable that I have borrowed (as a quote) to head this post. Kunstler’s post is recommended reading.
It all centres around the 2016 US General Election which will determine who is to be the next US President. The so-called leader of the free world (chortle-chortle).
It is not clear to me just whether it is Hillary who is the ‘Loathesome’ and Donald who is the ‘Unspeakable’, or whether it is the other way around. But I suspect, I honestly suspect, that it doesn’t really matter a single iota either way.
Jim (JHK), lays out reasons as to why the result of said proceedings, what he refers to as – “the stupidest election contest in American history”, may be short lived (some sort of termination event perhaps, emanating from “the apparatus of the runaway Deep State (NSA and the military)”), or the whole thing may never happen, being overtaken (preceded) by overarching, unstoppable and grossly destabilising external events of an entirely different nature, centred around banking and financial collapse and which should provide “reason to worry that America will be too disorderly later this year to even hold the 2016 general election”. If you have been keeping up with the sort of news that could topple our already unstable global economy, you will have no problem in recognising the organisation referred to as ‘DB’ in Jim’s post. It is not an American entity.
I hope I haven’t given away too many spoilers. Just read the damn thing for yourself. Here is the link again: Between the Loathsome and the Unspeakable.
