Oh, I see, you wrote it for yourself

You were in Taiwan still at the time: December 10th of last year. I can't remember where, exactly.

But this must have been some kind of plea to the universe. Anyway, I guess it was a message.

Think on these things is a damn important book to me.

Now your books are scattered into disparate boxes. Oh! Painful it is for me to be separated from my books. To not know where they are.

I am a book hoarder. This is a repeating patters. I hoard books, which makes moving time a bitch. I have found so many fabulous books on the streets of Cambridge, when the Harvard and MIT kids head for home. Books? Heavy - not going to bring them home, or ever read them again! FREE!

The Cambridge free box. An American Classic. I should take pictures.

Righto - I got the distinction. Decide vs. Choose. Roger.

But I've got a third thing going on: It feels like machinery is in motion, and I am a rider. I can see where it is going, and how it is going to end, and there is nothing I can do about it. Like when you drop an egg in the kitchen, and you see it, falling to the ground. And you know exactly what is going to happen, and there is no way to stop it.

What do you do then?

I think the answer is obvious. You follow your heart.

I want to follow it back home to Seattle. And wouldn't you know it, they just passed a $15 minimum wage.

In the end, this could be a psyop as well. She. The councilwoman. The election went down to the wire, and she won.

And now, as a result, the City of Seattle, which just happens to be this years Superbowl winner, becomes the first city to raise the minimum wage. This will put pressure on other cities to "be like Seattle" and the Superbowl winning Seahawks.

So, to recap.

Since deflation is winning, the Fed desperately needs help inflating. Hey! Here's an idea, FOMC, why not just double the minimum wage? The Fed talks to the President, who says his congress would never go for it, and the bankers say, "There is another way."

"Have you heard of Freud's son, Bernay

King of propaganda. We've heard the story of how he got women to think smoking was "cool" in the 1920's... Couldn't the same methods be used now, to make the masses just as complaint? Times have changed; surely their techniques have as well.

The psy-op achieves the same end, via different means. All the major municipalities will have to match Seattle. And voila. Suddenly the entire country's minimum wage is up to $15. And that bumps everyone up, all along the whole value chain. Surely the bookkeeper, who was previously making $15, now is worth at least $30!

The Seattle Psy Op. Somebody remind me about this tomorrow.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
