‘Reality!!!!’ is winning on points, the only way reality can win is with a TKO, or the asteroid I guess.

If the 2016 presidential election were actually about genuine political policies, Donald Trump would defeat Hillary Clinton in one of the biggest landslides of all time.
Well yeah, but they’ve been making sure it’s about anything but what’s going on in the world or what Hillary! and Trump have been saying they’ll do.
Our fine media betters have to create a ‘Reality!!!!” more conducive to a Hillary! win or the stupid voters might not figure out for themselves that they’re supposed to vote for her.
I saw the headline for this story, “Inflation about to explode higher” and I had half a post written about how it’s already exploded higher, but our fine governmental betters, aided and abetted by our fine media betters, have been hiding it. But then I started reading the article (I know. But sometimes I feel I should click the links I post and read what’s linked.)
We all know the BLS artificially suppresses the CPI through bullshit… adjustments made by government apparatchiks at the behest of their politician bosses. Some obscure theoretical academic calculation called owners equivalent rent accounts for almost a quarter of the CPI weighting.
It has no relation to reality as it has increased by only 12% since 2012, while the Case Shiller Housing Price Index is up 52% over the same time frame.
Exactly. Everything I buy is more expensive, ridiculously in some cases. Coffee has increased in price, by a bunch, as the package it comes in has become smaller. I save Folger’s coffee plastics for storing stuff like rice or I might not have noticed how much smaller they’ve become.
‘Reality!!!!’ has to trump (heh) reality or the wrong people might be elected.
Chemical warfare in Mosul, but that’s one reality that goes against the ‘Reality!!!!’ that Obama is not a feckless incompetent on the international stage.
Up to 1,000 people have been treated for breathing problems linked to fumes from a sulfur plant set ablaze during fighting with Islamic State in northern Iraq and U.S. officials say U.S. forces at a nearby airfield are wearing protective masks
Hmmm, now why haven’t our fine media betters been noticing this? The Wash Post has an article where they mention this, but every other article is in a furrin newspaper, like the Grauniad (which I only link to point and laugh).
Another result of Obama-helping ‘Reality!!!!’, the Turks are helping the Russians help the murderous Syrian dictator fight the “moderate rebels”, called “Syrian Democratic Forces”(SDF), J Effin Kerry is all excited about being on our side. The problem is that there are Kurdish forces in the SDF, and Turkey feels the same way about the Kurds they do about Armenians.
Turkish-backed rebels have launched an offensive to seize a north Aleppo town held by the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) coalition led by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
So Russian allies in the region are fighting our allies in the region.
We’re back in the Cold War, Hillary!’s “reset” button reset us to 1968. Another reality we have to ignore.
If anybody wants to know what “feckless disregard of reality” means……
A senior U.S. defence official said the groups struck by Turkish jets were not themselves U.S.-backed but were “close to and friendly with” the fighters Washington is working with.
Yeah, “close and friendly” in this case means, “They’re our allies when they’re over there (points to the left) but not when they’re over there (points toward Allepo)!” In other words, nobody in the world not an American citizen is afraid of Obama.
Remember, “Reality!!!!” is much easier to control than reality but reality always wins out.
Now, while I deplore my racism, does this look like “mostly peaceful” protesters are getting ready to make the ‘mostly peaceful’ protest even more mostly-peaceful? Or could it be totally not-jihadis getting ready to totally not perform terror acts in NC?
Police are investigating yet another gun store robbery in North Carolina….
The incident is the latest in a series of pawn and gun shop robberies in the area—many of which use similar techniques….
According to WSOC TV, more than 420 guns have been stolen in the Charlotte area this year.
Either way, I’m sure lawful gun owners will be blamed for whatever the deal is. That’s officially approved ‘Reality!!!!’, reality cannot be allowed to intrude on the current election.
In “Reality!!!!!” xtians are the violent extremists who react violently when their religion is subject to free-speech!.
In reality, not so much.
A new head on a baby Jesus statue is causing some to look twice in a Sudbury, Ont., churchyard.
The head — which went missing from the pearly white statue a year ago — has been replaced by a handmade terracotta sculpture created by a local artist.
Get that? Those violent Xtians are “looking twice”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So what’s the problem with the new head?
Imagine if that were Mohamed? Who would be more outraged, the NYTimesWashPostCNNABCCBSNBCetc. or ‘moderate Muslims’?
Instead, most Christians have not even heard about it. I saw this a few days ago and I figured someone would mention it, but that story is it.
The priest’s comment is priceless.
“It really is shocking to the eyes because of the big contrast in colour,” the church’s priest Gérard Lajeunesse told CBC News.
Really? The color is why it’s shocking to the eyes? Not because you’ve replaced Jesus with Baal?
With the most blatantly unnecessary yet surprising comment ever in the history of ever.
“I wasn’t trained for this in seminary.”
You’d think they might have taught him the difference between Baal and Jesus in seminary. You’d be wrong apparently.
Let’s take a break from ‘Reality!!!!’and reality to look at some “REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
So queertext focuses on the “material, erotice realities of our bodies”?
It’s funny, when I was in HS we were told that letting the little head do the thinking for the big head was bad. In the glorious Now!, it’s required.
What did we learn today?
Not a damned thing except priests in northern Ontario do some good drugs.
