Things To Do When Someone Feels Crabby



Sometimes we all feel a little crabby, or under the weather. Hal (person) is not feeling well at all this morning and it had me concerned. Hal seldom gets sick, but starting last night he complained about his chest feeling congested when we both noticed the smell of neighbors burning wood in their fireplaces. Personally, I suspect that those people are actually not burning wood, rather they are burning Duraflame fake logs which are only supposed to be used to help start a fire. 

Hal is still really sluggish this morning since he couldn’t sleep last night. He has been in bed all day and I periodically check on him. In the meantime, I’m doing routine stuff around the apartment. One of the most thankless jobs is checking that all the computers, laptops, tablets, etc have their software up to date. At least it keeps me busy on a Saturday afternoon. 

My Beliefs

The latest blog post topic is asking me to explain my beliefs or religion. Let me start by stating my belief that religion is nothing but a mindfuck that serves only to divide people. There is no God watching over everything, or if there is, he is a fucking sadist who enjoys watching misery and unhappiness.

My belief is simple. Be kind to everyone to the greatest extent possible.

Trump Is Descending Into Full-Scale Paranoia
One of the classic maneuvers in the intelligence business is to paralyze your enemy by making them think that moles are everywhere. Here in the US, for example, James Jesus Angleton became convinced during the Cold War that the Soviet Union had massively infiltrated the CIA and became so paranoid that he did considerable damage to the CIA with his endless hunts for Soviet spies that didn’t exist.
But it doesn’t just happen in intelligence agencies. It can happen anywhere:
Fabulous. I hope Trump becomes so paranoid that he fires every semi-competent official working for him, thus becoming even less able to execute any of his nutball plans. It’s true that there’s danger in having a bunch of inept toadies running the executive branch, but in this case it’s probably a blessing overall.
