And articles like that normally go on to advocate massive governmental coercion in the name of saving the Earth, leading some commentators to regard "greens" as former "reds" who changed color once it was no longer "in" to be commie.

They have long been known as watermellons.

Available on Virtually Simulated Gold Plaques for a Nominal Donation of £1,000,000 Each — Get Both for Only £1,999,999 !!! — Brought to You by the Loving Hands and Expert Craftsmanship of the Madoff Mint.


Madoff, now there's a guy. You have problems with him? He didn't take that $50 billion all for himself. Most of it he doesn't have anymore, which is why they'll never find it, even though you can be sure they'll look everywhere. What Madoff did, was take money from one group of people who felt entitled, and give it to another group of people who felt entitled. Felt entitled to 15% return on their money, just due to who-they-knew. While all the time Madoff simply skimmed a (relatively small) fraction for performing this service; this bit of theater for people who apprectiate being appreciated by life.

In fact, Madoff reminds me a lot of governments in general, and Congress in particular. Madoff will go to jail: but Barney Frank, no. Even if it turns out to be Frank who authorized the law allowing the executive benefits for AIG even after they took taxpayer money, no. Make sure you explain this in your treatise, there.

Most of these Fake Equivalence Conflict Ending Strategies (FECES) appear to derive from the general philosophy of Coherentism.

The cache, of course, is that all such approaches to Sea Level In Mind Only (SLIMO) ignore the reality of where the true sea lies.


I think my latest stab in the dark sleep.gif may just have struck at the heart of the beast cthulhu.gif — at any rate, it looks like a promising line of inquiry to develop as time goes on.
