…Join the club mister…

Over in the Triangulum Galaxy

Seljuk Chasonn has been using the tools available to him. They have brought the crews of their muted outposts back home, for no other reason than check them out for ill-effects of their exposure to who-knows-what. Now it is time to keep a watchful eye peeled.

Cruel Irony by The-Emperors-Finest on deviantart.com

Of all the intrigue & mystery making its way around this corner of the Universe, that Earth may have the best grasp on the facts is cruel irony. The least advanced of the four major civilizations is unable to reach out and share what they know. The technological advances they do possess come from Eridanus and Seljuk, none of which does Earth know exactly how they came about. That is tantamount to giving an Andromeda Slug wings to fly; going nowhere fast.

And Chasonn has no clue concerning the Ÿ€Ð. Are those miscreants from Galaxy Sexta A responsible for Seljuk woes? Unbeknownst to him, is the occurrence of the significant and distant Ÿ€Ð misfortune. Neither, has he a clue about OJoin the club mister.

So many recent “incidents” are born of misunderstanding.

  • The Ÿ€Ð pay the price for their over(re)active imaginations.
  • These Seljuk do not overreact and the results are different.
  • The 2052 version of an Eridanian shuts down when confronted by the unknown.
  • Those baby Earthlings have few options than to roll-with-the-flow.

 

And what about those baby Earthings?

Gus M. is happy, but for no apparent reason… to him.

“No Gus, you look like one of those old-time photos from back in 20-teens, holding one those giant checks for 500 million dollars.”

“I’d take it that Crip, in a Mercury minute, although in Global Dollars, all that’ll get you is timeshare on the moon and two years of shuttle service.” He recalls the days when there was a National Lottery, before society realized that too much money too fast was a detriment not a manageable asset. “I don’t know, ever since these visions I’ve been having, I seem to get these flashes. Today’s flash must be happy.”

What is the root cause of Gus’ joy?

THE RETURN TRIP – Episode 215

…In fact, Thomas Jefferson and others would actually run national lotteries to pay for non-budgeted expenditures…

As part of his second Inaugural Address, Roy Crippen may well have quoted scenes from the beloved (by buffs) Science Fiction series in his globally televised speech. His accentuation of the SOL Project would blend in nicely with the film, amplifying the need for spanning spatial distances quickly. Selling his country on the expensive proposition is not going to be easy, even in light of the President’s overwhelming popularity.

B-U-D-G-E-T; 6 unassuming letters {5 if you’re a rotten speller BUGIT or bad with numbers} that spell fear in the heart of recent Presidents, ever since the USA’s spending has exceeded its income, sometime after George Washington took office. Although the fiscal dynamics of a fledgling nation is absolutely unvarnished by contrast, the “Father of Our Country” still needed to deal with the relation between exports & imports and expenditures vs. revenue.

In his first term, “Prez Roy”, the nation’s affectionate label for him, is the 48th such aspiring budget balancer. Previously Washington, George only knew the meaning of the word debt, in the days before unbridled credit. His administration and several succeeding others, spent only as much as it took in. In fact, Thomas Jefferson and others would actually run national lotteries to pay for non-budgeted expenditureslike wars.

“I think we have done very well,” Roy told the nation last month. “In 2034 we had our first balanced budget since 1997 and we have managed to do the same, every year since then. Have we all made sacrifices? Yes. And has not the long arm of the Federal revenue collecting been altered? Yes… mostly, but only because we ran out of things to tax.”Wc GIF | Gfycat

Yet even before the wheels of said responsible government would to grind away on January 21st 2037, 25 trillion dollars had been borrowed and flushed down the toilet, protecting the world from itself and paying for those who refuse to take responsibility for their own affairs.

He goes on, “Productivity is not just another word. It is the foundation of industry, as well as a reasonable demand for services rendered. We are now all pulling on the same end of the rope.” When President Roy speaks it, it makes perfect sense & people listen. If a segment of society does not buy into his formula, it is isolated and dealt with.
