America’s Economic Decline

July 15, 2011 by


By Andrew Brown. The USA been undergoing substantial de-industrialization and de-funding for decades now. The incumbent American political duopoly has not seemed to mind that much though as both of them have actually encouraged this trend with their consonant public policies. Moreover it has picked up steam in the last two decades as substantive differences […]

WikiLeaks and US Gov’t Institutionalised Stupidity

February 18, 2011 by


I was doing some house-cleaning on my computer and various online accounts, and I found a little gem which I’d like to share. This is a message which I sent off to the State of Washington Attorney General on 14.12.2010. No, not this Rob McKenna, the other one. Dear Mr McKenna, As you are probably […]

It occurred to me, that I’m not really translating Newspeak into Oldspeak. Rather, I’m using Newspeak to make Obamaspeak make sense in Oldspeak. So, think of this as an exercise in Newnewspeak. Doubleplusgood, yes? Grab your dictionaries, it’s time to get throughout the next portion! See Part 1 here, and Part 2 here. Over the […]
