I’m already President of Earth, justifying all of my opinions about everything. And.. just like smaller politicians that head little countries like the USA, my opinions don’t matter all that much in the end.

Yup. I did see where he’s looking into some promising advisers to help him navigate actual politics (rather than campaigning, which anybody could do). I saw he MIGHT tap into Newt Gingrich along with a few other possibilities to do that part of the job for him. He can’t do it himself. Thing is though, you simply CAN’T make a US Fed Govt run efficiently. All empty promises. The Constitution is set up for inefficiency. It creates jobs, slowness keeps everything more or less stable. So whatever ppl say while campaigning, most of it doesn’t matter. It’s just sports

lol thanks hahaha grin emoticon I’m honored! Did you see my flag? Made it last Earth Day in 2015, found an appropriate theme song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_eCT3XY0L0 – I figured Earth Day, Earth President – what would he want? Well, keep people planting, working on the farm, everybody supplying each other via whatever local economies they figure works best in their local (national) govts, and try not to shoot each other TOO much.

I gave my creepiest political “glint of the eye” into the camera: I want the impression to be, “Well, he _says_ nice things but what if he’s really evil underneath it all? We can’t tell!”.

Maybe this will ease you into the idea of an alt.theme song: this is where I premiered it.
https://vine.co/v/i5ZDTJ7Mi57 [I was bored waiting outside of a dollar store: It’s also the day I realized that protectionist policies would fail… it was a little depressing actually ’cause I really like a lot of protectionist ideas… but I can’t see how they’d scale up beyond small communities].

I have an alt.theme song that I liked even better, although I didn’t stick it on youtube: I just tracked down the original [I’d only heard a 6 second clip] – and yeah, it’s a perfect theme song for an Earth President that _seems_ to have good intentions but you’re ‘not quite sure’ if he’s not just doing mind-control.

Yes, I think I’ll stick with the farm one. I made an 8-bit version of it too one day. I had a lot of fun with the idea. I figured it was going to be another boring election cycle at the time: I had NO IDEA we were gonna get *this* craziness…

lol hahahaha Absurdism is the best kind of humor imo. I like straddling the line between “Of course he’s kidding” and “wait, what if he’s serious?!” – awkward zone. Uncanny valley. The doll that looks alive next to the person who looks like a living doll. That sort of thing.

But no, I’m just a 44 yr old guy sitting in an ugly yellow chair a stone’s throw from the Florida Everglades and I wouldn’t last 7 seconds in politics. POlitics was always my least favorite thing, and it still is. Philosophy, was my least favorite subject, but i tackled that. Took apart parts of an engine to fix a problem a few years ago because I hate car engines. It’s sort of like eating the worst thing on your plate: I like to face it and get it over with. Takes away the fear.

What scares ME is I know I could be a cult leader except I have a conscience. I’d have to lie to people authentically and I couldn’t do that. I’d have to use people and I couldn’t do that. When someone starts hanging over my written words, I do something to spoil the milk. Believe me, I wouldn’t want to head anything.

Well, I don’t know what using time wisely would be: I’m a day-by-day kind of person and take interactions as they come. Not much of a planner. But I try to eek out as much as I can out of moment-to-moment. Sort of an “ever present”. Never got the whole planning ‘who will you be in 5 years?” thing.

===

Well, actually I’m “project by project”. Some projects are 15 minutes, some are 3 days and others I’ve been doing for years, one of them decades. So, I guess it’s the ‘deadline’ thing I don’t do much of. I figure I have one deadline: When I’m dead. The rest is get it done as fast, as efficiently and as well (effectively) as possible. I have my own internal deadlines of “what’s complete” but they’re not really clock/calendar based. More of a feeling. “Ok, this project’s done now, time to move on”.

===

 

lol that’s true too. You start to see how flexible most things really are. “Oh no Apr 15th is coming up!!” until one day you’re like “fuck it, I’ll file an extension”.

“Oh no, I owe the irs!” VS, “They can send me a reminder notice in 9 months at 1.5% interest. Cheapest loan ever.

===

oh no no, I’m Earth President. Countries handle their own finances. I don’t get involved in that stuff.

You’re doing great, Citizen. Your President is proud of you. Keep doing what you’re doing. Or… change what you’re doing if you like. You have my support. -President Udut like emoticon

tbh, I hardly noticed the Obama presidency, or even the 2nd 1/2 of Bush’s 2nd term. I mean, I voted, but I really didn’t notice a whole lot of difference. But politics ain’t my thing really. The gay marriage thing surprised me – that was new – but overall, I didn’t notice much outside of a few programs that seemed like excuses to get my credit info.
