Trump, delivering a riff in New Hampshire about how American foreign policy had destabilized the Middle East, said that it was hard to square that interventionism with what the foreign people actually want. His case: The coverings worn by some Muslim women on their face -- or, as he called them, the "you know what." "I saw a woman interviewed. They said 'We want to wear them, we've worn them for a thousand years. Why would anybody tell us not?' They want to!" Trump said. "What the hell are we getting involved for?"Truth 1: Normal sane people like their own cultures. Our insane genocidal wacked beyond wacked beyond wacked culture is not even good for us, let alone for others. Truth 2: Therefore we should MIND OUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS. EXACTLY. EXACTLY. EXACTLY. PRECISELY. ON. THE. FUCKING. DOT. FUCKING TRUTH, FOR THE FIRST FUCKING TIME.

Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
