More rambling bollocks.

Feeling tired after another day flogging my unction. Also feeling tired as I listen to the mainstream media simply parrot the spin put out by the tts. terry might is making a pitch for the ‘new middle ground’, what the fuck is that? How is it different from the old middle ground? Is there an old middle ground? Where is this middle ground? Is it near the fabled Middle Earth?

Just remembered that for the first hundred or so blogs I had ideas for the new manifesto, time to resurrect this with: ‘All companies to reveal how many tories work for them’.

But lo, what is that questioning my bigoted bollocks? Surely all those who vote for the tts are not devoid of compassion for others, have some notion that perhaps things might be unfair and loaded. Of course our bigoted thinking comes from the shibboleths we inherit or assume during our formative years (I’m still in my formative years). Anyway, across my bows comes an interesting book: Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think is a 1996 book by cognitive linguist George Lakoff. It argues that conservatives and liberals hold two different conceptual models of morality. Conservatives have a Strict father model in which people are made good through self-discipline and hard work, everyone is taken care of by taking care of themselves. Liberals have a nurturant parent model in which everyone is taken care of by helping each other.

Thinking about the different concepts and much of it fits my biased political  views. I’m sure the tt strategists  have read it and apply it to their propaganda (can you confirm this Martin?).

Lots of schadenfreude with the ucrappers, their latest leader didn’t even last as long as big sam, who of course now has the best record of any English soccer manager. And now they’re beating each other up, things can only get better.

And as for drumf, no representation without taxation I say.Watch Sam Harris on youtube:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3yBGE80covk

And interest in anything, let alone trying to understand anything, has an ever decreasing half-life.

And good to see that the right wing leaders of Polishland have thrown out the proposal to ban abortions after massive, mainly female protest. Interesting that most (not all) anti-abortionists are of a right wing bent and they are progeny of the strict father model, daddy doesn’t like women to have much control or power.
