Has Hatch Lost It?

Relevance: 100%      Posted on: May 13, 2016

We sat down at Coffee Noir, outside, enjoying the spring sun. "It's been a while," Bill said. "About three weeks, I think." "I've been rereading our patient write-ups, especially Chapters 7 to 10," Jay said.  "Although we've had all the president-wannabees dropout, except for Trump, the other 25 perspectives are fairly current." "And you really nailed Hatch," Bill said, looking at me. "What do you mean?" "About losing it," Bill answered. "He's obviously completely lost it. It's no longer just his ignorance and arrogance - his neurons must be short circuiting." "Details, please," Jay said, impatiently. "You both saw it. Hatch is now in bed with Trump, expecting to change Trump a bit by whispering in his ear." "Good luck," I said. "Trump is not a listener; I doubt he pays any attention to whispers in his ear." "All the more reason Hatch has clearly lost it." "Maybe there's a reason," Jay said. "Hatch always wanted to be nominated for the Supreme Court. Wouldn't he be the ideal new Scalia?" "Our discussion of Scalia losing it may have been prophetic. From one scrambled brain to another." "God! Hatch would be worse than Gowdy - or even Mike Lee," Bill said.…

Trump 2016 Election: State Change now even more important

Relevance: 73%      Posted on: November 9, 2016

The harmless team was at The Roasting Company - doing our 2016 election mourning over good coffee. "Jesus, I'm depressed," Bill said. "There's no question I am," Jay said. "I even considered fully losing it early this morning." "Remember those last pages of State Change," I cautioned. "Those who are old and ready, and those who are considering checking out, can have an especially important set of opportunities. They can go way beyond distributing Ananda's Chocolates to our entire hit list - our 29 ideologues. Most were reelected." "You mean really take them out, don't you?" Jay asked. "Or at least make them undesirable for further service." "Why not? All they'll do in Congress is do more damage. They'll make many others suffer for their distorted ideologies." "We could just plant some illegal drugs on them," Bill suggested. "That might do it. Or do - or get done - some serious investigative reporting exposing their financial connections and other shenanigans." "Most of them - especially Gowdy and Chaffetz - love conspiracy theories and witch hunts. We could give them a taste of their own tactics - develop some paranoid fantasies in them." "I thought State Change would be somewhat obsolete…

Chapter 9: Congress

Relevance: 27%      Posted on: March 24, 2016

We had decided to allocate 15 of our patient ‘openings’ to current members of Congress. Who are our ‘winners’?   Homework.     “There are 435 members of Congress,” I said. “So many potential patients.”   “Time to decide on our full list of high priority patients,” Jay reminded us.   “I’ve been working with Kay on the various Congressional committees and subcommittees,” I responded, “trying to identify which might provide access without serious security or related issues.”   “Yes,” Bill said. “If we can get access to a subcommittee hearing or meeting, we may be able to access several members during one session.”   “And if that doesn’t work, we can still work to treat them on their own turf, during local events, town meetings, Congressional recesses, etc.”   “And parties, “ Jay suggested.     Committee and subcommittee meetings are generally open to the general public. They are scheduled at least a week in advance, although the specific agenda may not be fully available. The schedule is readily available. Audio and/or video records of meetings are available within three weeks after the meeting. Many are covered via C-Span. The site includes information on the Chair and Members and…

Chapter 11: Delivery and Treatment

Relevance: 19%      Posted on: March 24, 2016

“Let’s talk about Centennial Valley,” I said. “It needs to happen by mid-September or it’ll be too late for harmless. September 23 is father Fred’s birthday, I think.”   “I read it’s the 26th,” Bill said. “I’ve talked with the Manager of the U’s facilities in Lakeview. They have space available in September, which is nearly ideal for early school year events.”   “Terrific. I’ve been doing the homework on Bill Koch’s Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach, especially on the science and environmental studies teachers and courses. I’ve made contact with several who are very interested. I’m now working on getting the idea to Bill Koch, perhaps via his wife or son. School starts in early September. Once we book the school - and hopefully Bill - then we can work on his brothers.”     Koch Industries’ Matador Cattle Company operates three ranches: Beaverhead near Yellowstone National Park in Montana, Spring Creek in the Flint Hills of Kansas, and Matador Ranch in Texas.  Beaverhead Ranch is located on more than a quarter million acres in Southwest Montana. It stretches along a 90-mile road from Dillon to the Idaho border then east to Yellowstone Park.…

Chapter 12: Outcomes and Tomorrow

Relevance: 18%      Posted on: March 24, 2016

Jay, Bill, and I traveled and worked during the holiday season and in January to make our many assigned deliveries. Peter completed his trips by early January and filled me in via phone. About six weeks later, the delivery phase of harmless finished with a meeting and discussion - at a new coffee shop near Bill’s home - in the Avenues. It was an unusually warm early spring day, so we sat outside, away from the other patrons. The Salt Lake Valley had had another terrible winter inversion season. We were pleased that today the air was clean and relatively warm.     “I’m very happy to be here,” Jay said. “There were times I thought they’d get me.”   “Me, too,” Bill agreed. “Some of those local Congressional office staffers are scary. It was hard to fake it without really taking them on.”   “You can thank the Kochs and their libertarian study fellowships and professorships for providing such well trained staffers,” I smiled.   “Brain-washed staffers,” Bill corrected.   “Reminds me of a quote in Dark Money,” I said. “Back in 2009, Mayer writes, Charles Koch gave nearly $150,000 to Brown University’s Political Theory Project - a freshman…

Chapter 6: Patient Priorities

Relevance: 6%      Posted on: March 24, 2016

harmless is now meeting in parks, on the U campus, or at Westminster College. We’re too far along in the project to risk too much general public awareness or curiosity. We don’t want coffee shop - ‘regulars’ listening in. Today we’re on the U campus at one of the picnic tables outside the cafeteria.       “I’ve been thinking about the challenge ahead - the logistics,” I confided. “It would be most effective if we could treat all of our highest priority patients at once, thereby helping initiate an empathy tipping point.”   “You mean like over a very short period of time, so their individual experiences are roughly coherent?” Jay asked.   “And in a supportive, non-threatening environment - during a comfortable time,” Bill added. “We know that set and setting are critical to a good experience - to effective therapy.”   “It should be during a time of good press access,” Jay continued. “Perhaps when they’re giving speeches, being questioned, being interviewed.”   “What about college and high school graduations?” asked Bill. “They’d be accessible on campuses and in their local districts. Many would be giving graduation speeches - talking about futures, opportunities, careers - perhaps in…
