That might be the statement of the night.

Just got done watching Americans for Prosperity’s town hall with Dusty Johnson, and Dusty might  have had the best statement of the night in the last 10 minutes or so of the program after he was asked a question about coin shortages.

Dusty was remarking about some people writing on social media that they couldn’t be forced to use a cash card, and quipped:

“Too many of you are sharing garbage on facebook.”

I don’t think any of us can argue with that.

  1. Dusty’s talks are always a little different than the standard GOP talking points. They are one part Adam Smith’s theories on markets, one part Ronald Reagan’s sunny optimism, and one part David Letterman’s wry humor.

  2. Sharing garbage on facebook is as on-brand for the GOP as Rush Limbaugh telling us to take page from the Donner party.

  3. While not downplaying the effectiveness of the most potent brainwashing machine mankind has ever devised, FaceBook houses truth, partial truth, falsehoods, and outright lies.

    It’s a lot like real life.

    In the area of partial truth, it is conceivable that the Greenback might someday be defunct when high school graduates can manufacture bare minimum (2G connection, ability to visualize, listen, record, send and sort crypto-chain messages) computers down to the integrated circuits.

    Being cavalier while acting overconfident underestimates the scope of the problem or is contributing to the problem.

    If we get rid of Greenbacks before that time, crime syndicates will move operations to The Internet (spoiler alert, they are already there but have yet to back America’s savviest consumers using cash and private asset exchanges).

    Much tracking is possible even with Greenbacks.

    I’ll do this same piece in my next Big Picture on Spearfish City Limits at (thinking in the next day-or-two).

  4. Oh Dusty. “Sharing garbage” is what we do now.

    White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany: “The science should not stand in the way of this,” she added, saying it is “perfectly safe” to fully reopen all classroom.”

    Whew. That’s comforting. But… a person might ponder…. if science wasn’t used, how did you determine that schools are “perfectly safe” to open?

  5. Now if Dusty were to comment on Dear Leader’s use of Twitter, he’d be making a valuable comment.

  6. And you know it’s bad when none of the the regulars on this blog can even step forward to defend it.
