A work day and a writing day. Having added a couple of thousand words to my story I felt extremely virtuous. So, I looked at the headlines to see what I had missed. Yikes!
What I saw was plenty of panic over the bank failures and the subsequent actions of the Fed and the other central banks. The narrative is that the Fed and the regulators are going to thread the needle by raising the prime rate enough to keep inflation from igniting but save the banks from imploding by trading their underwater bonds for new ones. Now of course the bond swaps will be wildly inflationary but the thought is if we just keep pumping cash into the banks it will keep the economy from imploding. What could go wrong with that? I’m thinking of converting all my assets into Doritos, the only known commodity that never loses its value and that all people recognize as cash.
Meanwhile the MSM is beginning to get interested in the reports of the Biden family receiving Chinese influence peddling payments, and even CNN admitting on the air that “this doesn’t look good.” So, what can Mumbley Joe do? Well, he says it ain’t so. But nobody believes that. So, he starts yelling about “assault weapons.” But nobody even blinks an eye anymore at that ploy. So, what’s a grifter to do? I assume he’ll try to wag the dog. He’s wanted to get the Russian oil and gas but it turns out the Russians have guns and aren’t afraid of rainbow flag waving soldiers. Plus, it turns out they still have those nukes. Not good.
My guess is he’ll try for a safe war. Maybe he’ll invade Canada. They’ve got oil and gas just like the Russians but no nukes and they’re kind of light in the loafers, especially that Trudeau guy.
I mean, it’s a great idea. This will be easier than that famous standoff with Corn Pop. And he could look tough while doing it. All it needs is a cool name like Operation Desert Storm had. Maybe Operation Arctic Blast or Operation Great White North or Hey Ya Hosers! And this would give General Milly Vanilly a chance to actually win at something. All he’d have to do is have his tranny division roll into Ottawa and de-pants Trudeau and demand he surrender to the obvious justice of a (nominally) heterosexual man groveling before transgender soldiers demanding his country relinquish their harmful fossil fuels to a higher power.
It makes sense to me. It can be a form of reparations for the slaves that the white people of Canada never got around to having but probably thought about. Maybe Gavin Newsom could get involved. His state is looking for $65 billion dollars for reparations and right now the Silicon Valley guys are kind of tapped out. Maybe Joe can give him a cut of the plunder from the Canada war.
You know I really like the idea of the Canada war. We can’t lose (probably) and we can sell off parts of Canada to the rest of the world which will give us enough money to keep our economy afloat long enough to get Joe Biden re-elected in 2024. No, this is good. This is the real thing. I’ve got to call up Biden and get his people working on this. I wonder what my cut should be? Ten percent?
