I find the newest lockdowns hilarious, in all actuality. Here locally, Guv Andy has issued decrees making all restaurants ‘take out only’ and is telling Kentuckians they aren’t allowed to gather more than 8 people for Turkey Day.
I looked on several sites ‘keeping score’ of “cases” (note, what they call a ‘case’ is a test positive result, not a hospital admission or ICU patient, just a positive testing,,,) and while there is a slight uptick in “cases”, its also the start of cold and flu season and, HELLO!!!!, cold viruses are, what, I didnt quite hear you, CORONA VIRUSES. So yes, theres going to be said uptick.
But that doesn’t answer the question of ‘why now?’, does it? Nope. What I am seeing is retaliation for being upstart deplorables daring to question the status quo on the Selection cycle. How dare we question the integrity of such a forthright and honest political machine.
(Pardon me. I just blew coffee out my nose typing that)
I seriously get the impression of a school master or Drill instructor punishing the entire class/platoon until Pyle gets his shit together to the instructors satisfaction.
WTF happened to the American rebel spirit? Why are people putting up with what is OBVIOUS Tyranny in action?
Why the F@#k haven’t asshats been tarred and feathered yet?
Maybe we are waiting to see what happens when the vote thing is “settled”, maybe? Or what, I don’t know.
I said it on my last post, this shit is COMING! Its like a train wreck in slow motion but it is unstoppable. And the Left isn’t trying to hide anything anymore. AOC and her Ilk are calling for lists on “Trump Enablers”. And just WHAT does that mean? Short version: they had lists of Jews and sympathizers in Nazi Germany in 1938. Many of those lists were the only way the Allies were able to reconstruct how many died in the camps and were converted to ash on the ovens. The pits were easier to figure out, but still, no names or ID,,, ; back to the lists.
Is that what we have to look forward to?
Dio, you’re full of shit, it can’t happen here.
Yeah, and people said it couldnt happen anywhere, yet we have several examples in history, from all around the world, and some recent, to fall back on for warnings.
And using that history warning system, what I see coming,,,,
But I feel like I’m yelling fire in a theater and no ones listening,
Well, I can’t fix the world, and with as many as I see ‘going along to get along’ , I don’t want to try.
(Sign post: hard right turn ahead, no shoulder on road)
Great example of the stupidity: you see a person in a car, windows rolled up and AC cranked. Its a newer model so has HEPA cabin filters into the vehicle. Said person is all alone AND WEARING A DAMNED FACE DIAPER. It has NOTHING to do with protection, its fucking signalling SUBMISSION. And I see it EVERY FUCKIN DAY!!!
honestly, I get to a point where I just want to go full Jeremiah Johnson and leave y’all to the insane asylum of your own creation. I most definitely did not chose this mess and have been ranting against it for the last 9 months.
Yet here we are.
A pandemic that isn’t
An election cycle reeking of fraud and graft and not just from internal sources.
And a willfully compliant populace that refuses to question ANYTHING if it means a little discomfort or actually having to THINK. Just give us our Netflix and Facebook and we’ll be good.
And now I hear tell that a certain vaccine is made with fetal DNA.
A vaccine created in a lab in a few short months to fight a disease (also made in a lab) with a less than half a percent fatality rate.
I see more people concerned with what others are doing or not doing, yet in observation of them, they are in even worse shape then the ones they deride as being “selfish”. How many have seen someone blow up about this bug, yet look at them and they are no less than 50# overweight, have high blood pressure and get winded just walking down the aisle of a walmart. WHO’S SELFISH??? Why the fuck should I care about you when its obvious YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT YOU. And I can already hear ALL the excuses pouring in about this that the other. Fact is, get out and do SOMETHING, and that weight will come off, and your body will start to heal itself. Less weight, the heart doesn’t have to work as hard, the better you breathe, the easier the walking gets, the more the weight comes off: a positive loop. If you find you spend as much time with your ass on a sofa as you do sleeping, then you are 2/3rds of the way to obesity. Toss in eating half the time your butt is parked and you’ve hit the cruise control on the highway to FAT.
How is that not selfish??? You are all about your own comfort, creating health issues that OTHERS will have to deal with, either in the form of Doctors trying to save your miserable carcass, or the mortician that needs a damned forklift to get you into a coffin that had to be special ordered. Or being so fat that the guy doing CPR knows its a waste of effort because he can’t compress your ribs enough to reach that overworked muscle mass shrouded in fat, that is called YOUR HEART. He knows its a waste but keeps trying and trying until EMTs arrive. Of those two people, which one was the selfish one?
Fuckit,,, You can’t fix stoopid. And this world keeps swirling that point more and more every damned day. I keep pulling my little world a little tighter about me as it does. Maybe soon, the reckoning will begin and I can stretch out a bit.
Nope, not relating to mechanical things or boomsticks, just one of my random word-spill posts about everything and nothing.
I really jumped into the rabbithole with those questions I posted a few months back. With that in mind, I gotta say it: our educational system is WOEFULLY inadequate. Here’s a simple example; did you know that Sir Isaac Newton was the progenitor of the original Gold Standard? Yup, the guy that created Physics, defined several natural laws, etc was also a Treasurer of England and helped usher in an economic evolution by tying a commodity to a fiat currency. I had no idea until recently.(wasn’t the first I’m pretty certain, but was the first documented Name of such.)
So where does that lead to, Rothbard? Mises? Keynes(if you can decipher his dribble from his drool.)? How about Rush!?!?! (The band, not the talker.) The song ‘Lessons’ is one of my favorites. Or “The Trees“; a perfect analogy to the lunacy of government interventions in race issues. “The trees are all kept equal by hatchet, axe, and saw.” is the closing line in that one. What a way to use analogy to state that all government policy is backed by a loaded gun. (Billy Beck said “at the bottom of every government stack of papers is a loaded gun.” Sadly he stopped posting years back, and now I can no longer find his site.)
Book writing is work, but something I don’t find as exhausting as other things I have done. In fact, I have to set an alarm on my phone to get me out of the chair and doing some stretching to keep from getting all stiff and achy. To keep the muse from blowing away like dust on the winds, I have to have the alarm ease in to full volume. If I didn’t, as I found out a week or two ago, I’d keep going until I was not worth a damn the next day. Sorry, not giving away any hints of what I’m writing currently. Maybe later when its near finished and I need it screened by an unbiased source, but not yet.
The How to book is going back to the printer for its second round of proofs. I could probably make this easier on myself by using Kindles creator, only,,,
Kindle doesn’t have a Linux version of it and I really have zero desire to go back to a win’doh’z unit. Not the first time and won’t be the last, that I have had to ‘make do’ due to my ‘puters OS. I’ve never had luck with the emulator ‘wine’, it always crashes my system.
Ok, now i have to spill it all out. My current rabbit-hole has my teaching urges itching like a mess of chiggers. I’ve even found myself scoping out apartments near my daughter so that I could be closer to teach the granbehbies, or at least try to teach them something. I know my bloodline: we are all stubborn, thick headed mules when it comes to learning. We do learn, eventually; usually after the 2×4 has broken over our skulls, but we do learn. And we NEVER forget the lessons. But the stuff I want to show them is stuff that will never be shown to them if their education is similar to what mine was. (More than likely its worse now. In some instances, I know it is worse.)
My moving back up there is an idle thought, and not likely to happen; I’m rather anchored in here with a house, shop tools, fat dog, and preggers cat. But slaking my thirst to teach is becoming a distraction in other areas.
And its not helping that about half of my bookshelves are buried under educational texts that I have purchased so that I have tools for teaching the grandkids. If I have never stated it, my dream in high-school was to become a teacher. Its been a rather convoluted journey so far, but I never let that dream go. With that said, I wouldn’t want to be a white male teacher these days: to many ways a disgruntled student could ruin your career, especially with it being so easy to do things with cell phones. (Locally, a male teacher was recently sent to jail for receiving a ‘sext’ message from such a disgruntled student.) As I am white, and quite certainly male, I’ll pass on getting set-up for annihilation like that.
Maybe if I were to say I self-identify as an owl. 😜 Naw! I’d still have to deal with the libtard delusional mentalities running the
incarceration education hellholes. Pass.
When does one stop worrying about collapse and start embracing it? How about when you realize that we our well into year 10 of it? Yup. That was my conclusion after I posted up that chart the other day. FYI, a rumor flew across my emails a day or two ago about Trump “possibly” re-establishing a gold standard. No idea if its real or not but a little digging and I am seeing reactions that indicate its either possible, or the rumor is wider spread and people are reacting accordingly. If it is real, get gold now. Not certificates, but the hold in your hand heavy stuff. (Quick check this AM and gold was sliding up again. $45/gram and rising.) The reactions from the Keynesian side will be worth documenting if this is real. If you can’t get gold, go for silver as it will likely scale up as well. And if you can’t get silver get the other three precious metals; lead copper and brass, because you never know. Note: a gram of gold is slightly smaller than a US dime: easier to store, carry, and use if need arises. One dealer I know of sells a ‘credit card’ perforated in 10- 1gram squares. If you can find them, you’ll likely pay a premium for them as they aren’t common. Said dealer has a 10% markup on the ask level for his ‘cards’. I mentioned in the post talking about “life after google” that blockchain is likely the wave of the future in finance, and this doesn’t change that opinion, it would only delay it, maybe. It may even accelerate it as I think going back on a gold standard at this juncture, especially if the rumor is accurate about fixing it to a $10000/oz mark (no typo there, 4 zeros!). I can only see turbulent times for all; savers investors, and business. Banks are going to be fighting this tooth and nail because it would kill fractional reserve banking; at least at the level they are used to playing. Note, the last two times that something of this ilk was proposed, the President was either killed or shot at. JFK proposed a silver certificate and died. Reagan started discussing it and was shot shortly thereafter and the whole matter disappeared. I am not saying there is a correlation but it sure is pretty coincidental.
Again, I have zero information of the reality of this,,,
Money may not be the root of all evil, but large quantities do attract a shitload of evil.
Stoopid is as stupid does, Right? I
can’t figure don’t want to figure out how the stoopid has become so prominent in our world, and there are days where I feel I am an extra in the Idiocracy movie. Its scary. May be that the area I live in is just a little thicker in dumb than other places, but I hear from others that they witness the same. Good lord, we need something drastic to happen if that’s the case. Yah, seems a little ironic coming from a guy that wanted to grow up and be a teacher, huh? That isn’t the cause of that itch though; I know one person can’t make that drastic of a change without an exponential amount of violence first. I’ll pass on that too. I read something recently over at Irish’s place that fits. “If I lived everyday as if it were my last, the body count would be staggering.” Yup, I can say that would be fitting.
ayup! when the intelligence vampires are about,,,,
