…but knock on effects are a bitch….or emergent properties if you prefer
…& even the kinds of persistently un-emergent sorts of properties that come with tags starting “Exhibit…” can stink the joint up plenty
…& sure, in the short term you can fool some fools that you’re pulling strings & making plays & everything’s going your way…but you can’t fool all the people all the time

…which is why the US is emptying coffers he doesn’t even know he’s spending because he’s too busy fraudulently enriching himself at the nation’s expense
