positive optimist


On the darkest day look for light from The Positive Optimist.

Bob Dylan told us we don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

Turns out he wasn’t talking about the weather.

You don’t need a weatherman, but you might want a translator to translate just what he means in Subterranean Homesick Blues.

Or find The Positive Optimist.

Turns out a translator is a good idea when you watch the news.

How would they translate the moment Donald Trump said, “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing.”

The idea of a global economy doesn’t include farming out hacking to Russia.

Let’s check the world map to be sure.

Plenty of territories and districts vie for the place reserved for the 51st state.

The Positive Optimist says Washington D.C wants in, Puerto Rico wants some consideration. Cuba might be on the menu for later.

No where does Russia look or act like they want into the United States as the 51st state. Maybe they saw how America treated Alaska after the purchase and need some of that love?

Break out your calculator to see how the two nations’ Gross Domestic Product, GDP, matches according to World Bank numbers.

American GDP: $17.9 trillion.

Russian GDP: $1.3 trillion.

If the numbers are even vaguely accurate, taking on Russia as the 51st state would be a loser bet. No one needs another welfare state to bog down progress and growth.

Donald Trump sending a hacker job to Russia is so 1980’s. If you want it done right, send the hacking message to China.

China GDP: 10.8 trillion.

China has a hacking track record, shown they can worm into the tightest system, and besides they already make a ton of stuff for America.

When’s the last time you bought something Made in China? When’s the last time you bought something Made in Russia?

Who would make a better 51st state, China or Russia?

The Positive Optimist says both. As America’s 51st and 52nd states, both will complement America’s obsession with theme parks.

Top Ten Chinese Theme Parks.

Russia tops the list of Weirdest Theme Parks.

Based on, the top three parks in the world are in Orlando, Florida.

Florida and the fountain of youth search still going strong.

So which nation reminds you most of Florida? That’s our 51st state.
