Movies to Watch – Prime Video – 1st Film

I’m watching No Safe Spaces, with Adam Carolla and Denis Prager, among others. As long as you have the Prime account for the shipping, you might as well use it to both educate yourself, as well as to F*** with Amazon. You have to work to find some of the videos, and a few are …

American Stasi

It’s been here for some time. Those people who will ‘pile on’ when they detect the slightest disagreement with their views. Or, when someone who is an easy target says or does ANYTHING. Doesn’t matter what they say. Or DON’T say. Or if they apologize for clumsy wording, if it might be taken in an …

A Quick Task Before the Dentist’s Office (Ugh)

I was hearing people talk about how they wanted to participate in a betting pool on the date/time when Little Joey Biden would exit the Oval Office. So, I used a Baby Birthdate pool to create that very thing. It’s a buck a guess, proceeds to go to the DAV (Disabled American Vets). It’s only …

The Scariest Words in Biden’s Address

“We need everyone to get vaccinated. We need everyone to keep washing their hands, stay socially distanced and keep wearing the mask as recommended by the CDC. Even if we devote every resource we have beating this virus and getting back to normal depends on national unity. And national unity it isn’t just how politicians …

Why Actions by Private Companies May be Violations of Constitutional Rights

From the Writer in Black – I’m not going to excerpt, just go to the link.

The Dr. Seuss Debacle

If you had asked me to predict just which writers would be banned, I couldn’t have predicted: Laura Ingalls Wilder – books said to be racist, based on common attitudes at that time towards the Indigenous People of America. Dr. Seuss – cartoon depictions of Asians and other People of Color said to be exaggerated …

I WAS Going to do Something Useful, But…

…my internet started getting flakey, and I had to re-boot, and I was using a known site (with known loading characteristics) to test it out. Okay? Okay, I have to admit it was According to Hoyt, which – STRICTLY because I was scrolling down the page to see if it loaded correctly – led to …

Not Making This Up Dept.

As values-based democracies, NATO allies and partners have been at the forefront of the global women’s rights movement. And as an alliance, NATO plays an important role in advancing equity within foreign policy. When NATO foreign ministers meet later in March, they should take the natural next steps toward adopting a feminist foreign policy (FFP).[1] …

Tough Day Personally

I just came back from a trip to the Ortho guy – had a knee injection with a gel substance (the needle is HUGE!). Naturally, I was actually hobbling worse when I left, than when I entered. Nonetheless, in another day or two, I will be experiencing the benefits of a more fluid motion in …

The Public Service Pitch Du Jour

Hey, remember public service pitches? I do. We don’t see or hear them much any more, possibly because air time has become so expensive, whether on radio or television. At one time they seemed endless. The one – actually, it was a family of them – that lingers most vividly in my memory is “The …

Toxic and duplicitous.

What the Fed has been doing ever since Greenspan (the veritable “Patient Zero” of the current global $280T debt disaster) is very clever yet extremely toxic, as well as openly duplicitous. Specifically, the Fed now prints over $120B per month (to buy $80B in unwanted Treasury bonds and another $40B in unwanted, toxic MBS [mortgage-backed …

“…You Peon?”

“Who are you calling a public servant…

Between a rock and a hard place.

Or between Scylla and Charybdis is you want some pre-Oprah imagery. So, the whole economy is a gigantic credit bubble completely dependent on artificially low interest rates, and the whole thing would be destroyed if the Fed had to raise interest rates to fight inflation, which means they won’t raise interest rates to fight inflation, …

Why HR1 HAS to be enacted NOW

Because, before Harris can depose Biden, she has to be able to ram her VP replacement into the job. As it takes a simple majority of BOTH the House and the Senate, the Leftists MUST win the NEXT election. Which, given the way they have pi$$ed off the Normals, and the determination that they will …

I FINALLY Pi$$ed Off FB

Just saw this on my Facebook account. [Sad Face] Isn’t that a hoot! I’m loving it – apparently, just posting a picture is such a dangerous incitement to revolt (VIOLENTLY), that they had to STERNLY warn me about it! Should I respond to the ban by commenting?

Something New

I’ve been reading a new series of essays, by Paul Graham. Well, technically, they’re not NEW – but they are new to me. This one has got me thinking – it’s about the way that writing is taught in schools, and what’s wrong with it (short answer: a lot). But, it also touches on what …

America: Default Alive, or Default Dead?

I read a lot. Mostly blogs, for the breadth of content. And, what I have found most interesting about that reading is the links. The links are an indicator of what that blogger was reading/thinking about, when they decided to put down those thoughts. In essence, the links are a cookie trail to what inspired …

Illusion, delusion, collusion, confusion, and explosion.

This all folds into the story of how for decades the monetary illusion created by central banks collaborating with governments has delayed an inevitable crisis by not dealing with reality. This means when the forces pent-up over the years finally break free events will most likely occur faster with far deeper ramifications than many people …

Mush, you huskies. And roll them dice, campers.

Retirement investing used to be easy. Save money, park it in interest-bearing instruments, and live off the income, with Social Security and maybe a job pension to help. Not complicated and it worked well for decades. But about the time the oldest Boomers began reaching their mid-60s, this thing called “interest” mostly disappeared as committees …

How to Make Life Suck Less

I was thinking about this very thing this morning, when I ran across John Wilder’s post. I won’t excerpt it, you need to read it for yourself, along with the comments. The thing is, terrible things do happen to people – even those who work hard to live a good life, pay their own way, …
