The Day Algebra Died

“X = X,” was what I remembered about my first day of Algebra and suddenly the world of math seemed to make sense. Whatever you did on the left had to end up the same value on the right. Math was the ultimate tautology! Everything had to be balanced.

And then yesterday, Wrong-Again Rudy was unbalanced:

Giuliani: When you tell me that, you know, he should testify because he’s going to tell the truth and he shouldn’t worry, well that’s so silly because it’s somebody’s version of the truth. Not the truth.

Chuck Todd: Truth is truth.

Giuliani: No, no, it isn’t truth. Truth isn’t truth. The President of the United States says, “I didn’t…”

Todd: Truth isn’t truth?

Giuliani: “No, no, no.”

Todd: This is going to become a bad meme.

X ≠ X

Rudy is adjudicating in the court of public opinion. And we know that for Comrade Stupid’s base, the “truth isn’t truth.” Possum Hollar does not trust or believe the FAKE NEWS!!1! For them, the truth is whatever the prznint says it is.

Destroying objective truth is Prznint Stupid’s top accomplishment:

  • Kellyanne Conway on “Meet the Press,” Jan. 22, 2017: “alternative facts.”
  • President Trump, daily: “fake news.”
  • Trump to the VFW National Convention in Kansas City, Mo., on July 25: “And just remember: What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”
  • Giuliani on “Meet the Press” yesterday: “Truth isn’t truth.”
  • Slogans of the Party in George Orwell’s “1984”: “War is peace … Freedom is slavery … Ignorance is strength.”

Somewhere, George Orwell is laughing.

    Mr. Noun-Verb-911 has become Mr. Noun-Verb-Confession. He can’t open his mouth without further incriminating his client and/or proving himself the world’s worst attorney. He knows that courts everywhere grapple with “he said, she said” versions of stories and routinely decide which side is truthful when there’s lots of external evidence pointing the way. But Rudy himself routinely provides even more external evidence in his incompetent statements that prove his client is nothing but a FUCKING LIAR.

    Not only does X = X, but John Galt HIMSELF has some mind-numbing discourse about how significant it is that A = A in you-know-what. No, don’t read it. My god, just take my word for it.

      Ellis –

      One of my favorite memories was my mother’s annual attempt to read that book during our summer vacation. She always gave it a valiant effort, and put it down, spine up on a table somewhere never to be touched again, except to be used as a coaster for her evening cocktail with my dad.

      Never touched the damn thing, myself.

      Rgds,

    Well there is evidence that 45 believes truth is what ever he wants it to be at any given moment. He seems to believe that anything that pops into his head is the truth. He’s like Alex Jones, except he believes his own bullshit, and can’t make any money without the help of Russian mobsters.

    The USSR had two papers, The News and The Truth. The running joke in Russia was, there is no truth in the News, and there is no news in the Truth.
