LIONEL PODCAST: The Enchiridion of Critical Thinking. Or Something.

Mr. Watson, I need you. After a series of frustrating conversion problems with Mac OS X 10.9 and an FTP conversion system that could only accommodate 10.7, that frustrating beach ball from hell, hours of reconfiguring and finally finding a system that could accommodate these new strictures and requirements, VOILA! I’ve the following.

Conspiracy? No fact. This has indeed been a most interesting times what with the semicentennial of JFK’s public murder, the insanity of Thanksgiving and the attendant Black Friday (supported if not caused in toto by the Ted Baxter sockpuppet media), here we are and here I sit. The JFK 50th was spectacular in in its unspectacular coverage by a feckless, impuissant and invertebrate MSM who found new ways to regurgitate the old. I watched amazed at how the official story was replayed and rehashed without missing a beat. Not one anchor or reporter of note (except one brave commentator) dared to address alternative theories to the spectacular and fantastic official story. Theories that have been studied and analyzed by a host of respectable and learned folks. Remember Pilger’s Law: Never believe anything until it’s officially denied. Not for a second did any of these folks even consider the fact that the official story that was presented by those with the most to lose was replete with holes and logical inconsistencies. ‘Twas amazing truly. In fact, I was sitting with a young colleague who had miraculously never seen the Zapruder film, especially the frames that show the bloodied mist of the President’s brains and dura mater and shards of skull. He was aghast at the brutality. So, this is what they’ve been talking about. I asked him afterwards which direction he thought the bullet(s) was/were coming from. Why, he said almost shocked at the seeming idiocy of the question, from the front, of course. No, I said, the official story was that it was a rear shot. You should have seen the look on his face. For at that moment, the entire lunacy of the certitude by anti-conspiracists was clear. He finally got it, saw it and marveled.

Remember, they’re happy. And then we went through the pre- and postprandial Thanksgiving frenzy along with the sheer and absolute insanity of Black Friday. Just imagine those folks who are ready to kill others were happy. Happy! They weren’t breaking into stores looking for food; they weren’t rioting over bank runs, no! They were happy. It was Xmas and they were ready to kill each other. What’s more amazing is that they weren’t paying with cash but were invariably charging their insanity, diving and burrowing deeper in debt. And the media watched. And laughed. Watched as these loons fought on the ground, pulling hair. Watching and recording how some were Tasered and arrested. Watching in fake and faux shock. Pretending to be aghast but loving the real time video. We’ve become savages. And, I repeat, we’re happy!
