I’m trying to figure out what is most worth my time and yours, so I hope you’ll reply with your honest opinions. You can comment after each section below in an email by just hitting “reply” on this email, or you can reply in the comments section:
I’d like to get the news headlines out by 8:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time. That requires I start reading the news and compiling headlines at 5AM. If I don’t write the daily editorial, I have no problem getting the news out by 8 PDT. If I do write the editorial, it’s often the best I can do to get it out by 8:30. So, first question: Do you want the editorial enough to get the news a little later, or does the editorial not matter much to you?
Are their topics in the editorial you wish I’d avoid. (While I won’t drop my equal-opportunity criticism of both parties, if I write on politics, I can drop politics entirely or AI or any other topic that readers genuinely don’t want to hear. I have no interest in pressing my views on people if they have no interest in hearing them. So, please let me know if there is a topic you just plain don’t want to hear, such as the war, politics or AI based on how you’ve see me cover it.
Are their topics you wish I’d cover more in the editorial?
As for the news, here is a list of all the topics I cover. Are there any you have no interest in or others topics you’d really like to see added? Feel free to make comments you want with respect to each section:
Economica (stocks in bondage, bonds in the stockade, market madness, etc.)
Housing Bubble Bust 2.0 (including commercial & global real estate)
Money Matters (monetary policy, gold, silver, cryptos, currency wars & cashless)
Overinflated (too much money chasing too few goods)
Famished (inflationary sanctions, shortages, & famines)
Wars & Rumors of War, Civil Conflicts & Unrest
Hacks & Cyberattacks (plus threats from artificial intelligence)
Politics & Social Decay (national & international)
One-World Government (WEF & global authoritarianism)
Censorship & Invasive Government (overreach at national and local levels)
A Pox Upon Us (the plagues & pandemic policing of the 2020’s)
Cataclysm & Calamity! (extreme weather, earthquakes, fires & floods)
Going Green (changes in energy/pollution, pro & con)
Off-the-Beat or Just Plain Offbeat News (merely off-topic or all-out weird)
Creative Collapse (cartoons, humor & other creative expressions)
What do you like best and/or least about The Daily Doom?
Are you a paid subscriber? (Will help me see if there is any difference in how paid subscribers respond and those who are free subscribers respond.)
If you are a free subscriber, is there any change or difference that would actually cause you to become paid? (Is there one thing in particular that holds you back?)
Anything else you’d like to say?
While my sole objective is truth, that doesn’t mean I always discern the truth or that people want to hear it either. Truth, however, is also not determined, in the least, by popularity or democratic majority, but there is no sense in sharing opinions no one wants to listen to, while there might be other things that people really wish they could get more of. Maybe you are happy with The Daily Doom EXACTLY as it is. All worth considering for setting the course of this publication, especially your creative thoughts of what would make it better.
I agree the editorial is what I look forward to. Always good entertainment.
"there is no sense in sharing opinions no one wants to listen to"
On the contrary, that's what we need most. There are three sides to every story (what the Republicans say, what the Democrats say, and the truth; or what Zelensky says, what the Russians say, and the truth; or ....). Keep it sane, keep your feet on the ground, but don't waste my time with the comforting lies that some fast-talking politician has already convinced millions of sheep to believe.
