    Smart lady, and a long-time supporter of Bobby Jr. It’ll be interesting to follow her blog thru election time. Kudos to JHK for a good interview.

      RE: Sane vs. Insane bifurcation of the Nation and how to recognize them.

      The Insane are wearing masks and other face coverings again.

    Interesting discussion covering a lot of ground. When Jim asked Catherine about why all the editors & writers across the country have dropped their hard-earned mantle of independence & choose to hock the regime’s cheap propaganda, I recalled a story a few years back about how all of them are in the pay of the CIA. I know the story had to do with the German media specifically, but why would The Company stop at Deutschland? Obviously keeping this country’s media on the side of the regime is a matter of national security, right? So likely every editor & writer has been made aware of a personalized control file with “Deposited at Langley” stamped across it.

    A sick sick situation, and one that’s going nowhere. After the long emergency has consumed the rest of the blob, The Company will still be around, sticking its people into what positions of power remain. That’s what happened in Russia with the KGB after the Soviet Union collapsed. Doubtless the CIA has been positioned to ride out whatever stupid lethality the regime dishes out…

    Anyway, I’m off to my son’s choir recital. Keep on enjoying life, whatever may happen!
