According to Dr. Anthony Fauci, over 99 percent of people who died from COVID-19 in recent weeks were unvaccinated.

What to the Slave is the Fourth of July? - 2020 Version

Amidst the national conversation on racial justice and police reform, this collective of Black artists created this powerful performance based on Frederick Douglass’ “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July?”

“Life is complicated. It’s filled with nuance. It’s unsatisfying. If I believe in anything, it is doubt. The root cause of all life’s problems is looking for a simple fucking answer.”
– Anthony Bourdain

This reminds me of H.L. Mencken’s apocryphal quote:

“For every complicated problem, there’s a simple solution — and it’s wrong”

And also this from Blaise Pascal:

“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

Random Friday Thoughts

It’s Friday, early afternoon. I’m sitting on my deck, having had a most hectic morning. I missed a Board meeting to work on a presentation that was due this morning. We’ll be seeking approval for three bond financing transactions, the details of which are all still in-flight. We were an hour late, but still okay. #whew!

Next up was a meeting with part of our financing team (representing advisers, our lawyers, the bankers, and their counsel). We were working to finalize the terms of one transaction when a new idea popped up. I quickly conferred with colleagues and decided to incorporate the new idea into our deal. #dingdingding!!

The meeting was about to end when I suggested something ridiculous. I asked one of our advisers to get up, rack up the balls on the pool table that’s been behind him in all of our Zoom calls, and then break them. He did, it was hilarious, and folks said we should have all of our meetings like this one.

So, suggesting stupid unusual things can sometimes be so #winning!!! :-)

These events confirmed another thought I’ve had lately: I #LOVE doing #BondDeals. They present opportunities to do big things, and I #LOVE doing big things!

Financial engineering is an area where I’m free to act. I’m trusted, and, working with some pretty awesome colleagues, we’ve entirely reshaped the finances here in the last nine years, with still more reshaping to come.

I’m trusted in this space, and it’s fun. We’ve made progress.

Now about some of those other spaces…

Okay, back to #winning! Did I mention I’ve been sitting out on our deck under an umbrella? Right now, it’s 83º with a light breeze. I’ve been sitting here in a tee-shirt, shorts, living – I mean working – the life of Riley. No complaints, despite what I wrote above.

One more thing. I’m losing a fantastic team member. She’s moving on to bigger and hopefully better things. She’s made a tremendous impact here and will continue on a grander scale. Of course, I have mixed emotions, but this isn’t the first time. I’ve had other great people move on to other opportunities. One example is the banker we met with this morning. He was part of my team when I arrived here nine and half years ago. A little over a year later, I wrote:

[On my first] morning, I witnessed a great presentation about my company’s financial outlook. That evening, when I went home, I told my wife, “Thank God that guy works for me!” Well, effective today, he no longer does. He’s moved on to a new career, doing almost identically what I did many years ago at the same point in my career. I wish him luck, and will miss his energy, curiosity, and drive!

The new idea this morning came from him, and it’s not the first time. The great people seem to always be around, with energy, curiosity, drive, and a penchant for helping.

That’s #winning, too!!!

Thread by Jennifer Mercieca

I analyzed Tucker Carlson’s January 6th FBI conspiracy segment. It’s a masterclass in how conspiracy theories work, a thread.

First, TC activates his audience members’ “flight or fight” response. This is key because it activates the body’s natural responses to fear–adrenalin & cortisol flood the brain, which “hijacks” the rational part of the brain, preventing critical thinking.

Amygdala Hijack: What It Is, Why It Happens & How to Make It Stop Amygdala hijack happens when your brain reacts to psychological stress as if it’s physical danger and triggers your fight-or-flight response. It’s caused by a more primitive part of your brain called …

TC activated the f/f response by telling the story of a supposedly racially motivated shooting spree in which an African-American man targeted white men. He uses evocative language that puts his viewer in the place of the person shot, reaffirming they are in real danger.

But TC says that it’s not the shooter’s fault, it’s actually a reasonable response to what political leaders have done: focus on race to divide us. This general principle in his lede allows him to segue into the real topic: the government “regime” punishing “political dissent.”

He’s activated his audience’s flight/fight response, he has their attention, but not their reason, and now he deploys his conspiracy narrative. Remember what I’ve explained about why conspiracy is so powerful & effective: it is a “self-sealing” narrative. It can’t be disproven. If you deny the plot, the conspiracist accuses you of a cover-up, of trying to suppress the truth or free speech. If you deny the facts, the conspiracist says “they won’t tell you the truth.”

There is no fact or truth that can puncture the conspiracy theory, the logic of conspiracy covers it up.

The Secret IRS Files: Trove of Never-Before-Seen Records Reveal How the Wealthiest Avoid Income Tax — ProPublica

In 2011, a year in which his wealth held roughly steady at $18 billion, Bezos filed a tax return reporting he lost money — his income that year was more than offset by investment losses. What’s more, because, according to the tax law, he made so little, he even claimed and received a $4,000 tax credit for his children.

That’s f-ing ridiculous! And immoral!!

America’s gun obsession is rooted in slavery | Carol Anderson | The Guardian

File this under things I should have known, but didn’t!

“In 1788, at the constitutional ratification convention in Virginia, a major source of contention was that the draft constitution had placed the training and arming of the states’ militia under federal control. Virginians Patrick Henry and George Mason balked, and raised the specter of a massive slave revolt left unchecked because Congress could not be trusted to summon the forces to protect the plantation owners. Mason warned that if and when Virginia’s enslaved rose up (as they had before), whites would be left “defenseless”. Patrick Henry explained that white plantation owners would be abandoned because “the north detests slavery”. In short, Black people had to be subjugated and contained and state control of the militia was the way to do that.

The sheer brutality of human bondage, where plantation owners were notorious for “barbarities such as scalding, burning, castrating and extracting the tongues or eyes of slaves”, had created an overwhelming fear among whites of the enslaved’s capacity and desire for retribution. A series of revolts in the 1600s and 1700s terrified white residents and led to a slew of laws forbidding Black people from having any weapons, including guns. The militias’ all-important role was to quash those revolts, especially if the uprising was widespread, as in the 1740 Stono Rebellion in South Carolina.

This function of the militias was so important during the war of independence that governments such as that in South Carolina devoted the lion’s share of their white manpower to the containment of the enslaved. As a result, the colony did not have enough white men to join the Continental Army and repel the British. The calculus was simple: it was more important to the plantation owners in the colonial government to maintain slavery and control Black people than to fight for American independence.

In other words, concerns about keeping enslaved Black people in check are the context and background to the second amendment. The same holds true for today.”

Too Many Questions

Do the Right Thing!

Da Mayor and Mookie!!! Alas, I find myself back here again, wondering, searching for, trying to figure out what the right thing is. And then how to do it! Wondering if I’m up to it. We’ll see…

What does it mean to say that you’re “head over heels” in love with someone when your head being over your heels happens all the time while you’re just standing up?

Apparently, the phrase began as “heels over head” in the 1300s.
