You say the Shadow Government doesn't exist. To say that is have undeserved trust in a Government. 
We are called "conspiracy theorists" for entertaining the suspicion the one more time the Government is FSCKing us. You say "Snopes said it never happened" but you heard it or saw it. So excuse me for believing this is misinformation too.
From spraying virii into the New York and San Francisco subways to "Miss Ever's Boys"* in the Tuskeegee Experiment, the Government has consistently disregarded the knowing consent of participants in their projects.
For the first five years here, just fifty miles North of me, The Government and Lockheed had  an little known unshielded nuclear reactor reacting suspended 50 feet in the air for "research". Basically "to see what happens." Shh! It's a secret.

So you think the Government has gotten honest? Never happen. Lord Acton was correct. Trump is the only one who ever even tried. No wonder they hate him so much. Don Quixote de la Trump. It was a fool's errand. Everyone knows that everyone there is enriching themselves at the public trough above and beyond their legal compensation. Every last one will deny it. You don't mess with a good thing. And they don't give a shit about you!

We like the blame the people at the top, especially if they are not on "our team". But the truth is Party is immaterial posturing debate over trivialities of things they never should have meddled in to begin with. The problem is at every level from top to bottom. And is inherent not in real capitalism, but in this Government dominated capitalism. There is a word for that. a word whose meaning, even in the dictionary has altered over the decades. Now used by the Left to describe anyone who disagrees with them.
And the Webster definition is now "a political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual".
When the man who presented the world the Movement described it it was a financial system based on capitalism but controlled by the Government. Private ownership of Property and Government control,  Fascism. It's what we have kids.

We even had a bit of a headstart on Mussolini but we won't call it that. "What's good for General Motors is good for the US". No one said that Government control would be bad for the companies. Labyrinthine rules and regulations never voted in Congress but passed to an Administrative system the an army of unelected bureaucrats. The rules exist in many places to be difficult understand and comply with. They provide a barrier to entry as the cost in money and time block off competition to the established players who are big enough to afford to comply.
But do we have to have the endless wars?

 On Trump
My, look at how the powers that be hate him.  
It seems curious that putting a person who actualy was on the paying side of the equation and loved the "us deplorables" is so reviled by the Elites and the people on the taking side. Not at all. He is up-setting their good thing. He is rocking the boat. He is overturning the apple-cart. He is overturning the tables in the Temple. and they don't like it.

On his taxes. I am not this least bit interested in the theatrics of his taxes. Theatrics? Yes that's all it is. There is a point where you cross-over from the chance of being audited by the IRS to the certainty of it to being continually audited. The Trump organization was large enough to be continually audited. And they are better at it than the U. S. Congress. Between the zealousness of the usual IRS Agent and the Lois Lerners still lurking in there, if there had been anything, we would have known it before he was even Nominated.

To escape my scorning and boring teachers. I read the dictionary cover-to-cover, several versions; and the Encyclopedia topic-by-topic. They were much more interesting than the assigned readings. Probably more educational as well.

Luxomni is vulgar Latin for 'all light' not 'Light for all". That would be 'Lux pro omnia.' The latter would imply the ownership of the light provided was the givers to be given.

       The same with  the rights listed in the Constitution which President Obama decried as "negative rights"; the sine qua non of our nation's founding, the line in the sand beyond which the Government shall not go. Without which the "Several States" would not have banded together to be a Nation, the Bill of Rights.  
      A right is not the Government's to give us. It can only deny them. A right is inherent in our birth. No 'Right' can compel the actions of another soul.

     So is healthcare a right? There is a lot of compulsion to go around, taxpayers, providers, pharmaceutical companies, the pensions that are invested in them,hospitals, Doctors & Nurses and finally patients. That doesn't quite sound like a Right.

Thinking of the Big Bang Theory TV show, I realized that I identified a bit too much with Sheldon Cooper although I have not as great a memory anymore. The writers had really intended us to identify with  Leonard, the George Antrobus, the every man. But no, though not as totally emotionless as Sheldon, much of my thought processes mimic his.
Typing has become more difficult because it is the primary time  my obsessive compulsiveness kicks in, and in my old age my typing is getting worse as I hit adjacent keys instead of the ones I want. Meanwhile the thought pattern is still going into overdrive pursuing ideas, yet at the same time justifying every definition and statement. Hence, Almost ever statement contains the word 'and' two clarifying words of the type which un-worded people would tease me as 25¢ words. (I wonder how much large words are worth today? Last I heard, a dollar.*) More than merely highly precision-ed indecisiveness? The words have concrete meanings. Or could it be depth of inquiry. an excess of options to choose from and so many more to try. The bounds of unlimited curiosity. And our ever-present Master of those boundaries? Time.
