Reading About the Opioid Epidemic

I’m reading The Least of Us: True Tales of America and Hope in the Time of Fentanyl and Meth. It’s really well written, and has offered many details that surprised me. For example, did you know that one of the reasons that the Magic Bullet blender is so successful? Turns out that it is used …

Hoist on Their Own Petard

UPDATE: The Judge tossed out this gun possession by a minor charge (not a felony, despite what I wrote below). This happens all the time in lawmaking; the zealots want to impose some restriction on citizens’ rights, and they ramrod a bill through in short order. Then, after the dust settles, they realize that their …

Running on empty.

The West, in short, was Christendom. But Christendom died. If you live in the West now, you are living among its ruins. Many of them are still beautiful — intact cathedrals, Bach concertos — but they are ruins nonetheless.[1] The West is literally unmoored. Nothing controls us except untouchable elites, a corrupt press, arrogant billionaires, …

Some Concerns About Technology

I’m not going to Go Ted Kaczynski, but I do have some concerns about the infiltration of technology into so many aspects of our lives. I wrote in the post above about all of the ways that I use technology in my life. Just from the things I could come up with, off the top …

Demoralization of the United States.

Consider the weapons in the globalist armory of demoralization today: Critical Race Theory, Islam, cancel culture, “wokeness,” black crime, opioid addiction, transgenderism, Black Lives Matter, the legacy of “slavery,” unfettered immigration, Antifa, COVID, climate change. Each of these is a separate front in the Kulturkampf the Left is winning almost without resistance. “Yuri Bezmenov: How …

Pearls of expression.

amerika v.2: “California Governor Out Of Public Sight Since Vaccine Booster Shot 11 Days Ago” i take back everything i said about Fauci “California Governor Out Of Public Sight Since Vaccine Booster Shot 11 Days Ago.” By Ivan Pentchoukov, ZeroHedge, 11/8/21.

Six days of Weather Channel climate hysteria.

11/9/21 — “Weather Influences Diseases in Honey Bees, Study Finds.” Honey bee populations struggle. Six honey bee diseases heavily influenced by certain types of weather. Diseases not all affected by weather in the same way. Climate variability and diseases. Scientists hope their research will help shine a light on the impact climate change could ultimately …

Just to Catch You Up

I DID get the cordless snow blower, at a good price. If I were you, I wouldn’t wait too long – even at a megastore like HD, the supplies are limited, and the cheaper ones are going fast. And, in an associated note, make sure you get TWO batteries – and the charger (some boxes …

It’s Been a Rough Month

Moving. Trying to stock the new house. Transferring a business across states. Long-term physical issues. Missing my adjustable bed and electric lounge chair. Family issues. Weather. Missing my radio club activities. Escalating economic problems in America and the world. So, I’m mostly posting at Right As Usual – The Next Generation. And, making my Task …

Grotesque distortion.

Let’s be clear: I’m a screaming capitalist, but a pandemic world in which Bezos, Musk and other billionaire wealth has increased by 70% while 89 million Americans have lost their jobs is NOT capitalism, but a symptom of a rigged system in which the anti-trust rules I learned in law school, or the social and …

The attack on whites.

It can not be made any clearer that white people, their rights, culture, history, and achievements are under full scale attack by their own government and own school systems. This sense of helplessness, together with declining job opportunities and incomes, rising prices, overrun borders, and inability to correct the situation through elections, makes it clear …

What?!!

H/t: Burning Platform.

Pearls of expression.

Liberal/socialist pundits assure us that “unregulated” private-sector activity (although extinct since at least the 1970s) is to blame for every social ill; just a few thousand more rules and a few trillion more dollars for new centralized programs and we’ll be safe from those lingering free-market barbarians. “Financial False Hope.” By Steve Penfield, The Unz …

The precarious balance.

Americans are in a precarious position with regard to their own government. America has an empire, but the empire hates the Americans – largely using them as tax serfs to fund failed social programs at home and failed wars of choice overseas. If anything, the American people are an obstacle to the aims of the …

The Difference Between Public and Private Actions

Trevor Noah is not COMPLETELY wrong here. NOAH: “And I’m sorry, guys, but any parent who thinks their 17-year-old school’s assignment is too explicit, they need to check out his browser history, because trust me, he can handle it. It this shows you that the real dangerous ideology in society isn’t conservatism or liberalism. It’s …

Jan. 6 – Is ANYONE Besides Gateway Pundit Interested in the Truth?

I’ve been following The Gateway Pundit lately, as its coverage of News TPTB would rather bury is far above that of the Mainstream Media. Today’s link is to a story about a likely FBI plant, who appears to have instigated much of the activity for which those involved got arrested. The ‘investigative media’ has completely …

Cynic’s corner.

In recent days, the UN and other international organizations have begun warning of a worsening humanitarian situation in Yemen. This is a testament to the Houthis’ success in their operations. It has become customary that each time Ansar Allah evidently take the upper hand in the war, various international groups and organizations immediately start calling …

Thoughts Rising From a Grocery Trip

I happened to stop at a Walmart yesterday (needed a lot of diverse things – shower rod, hardware, and garden). I didn’t find as much in the store that I had on the list, so I decided to pick up a few things I’d been meaning to get at a grocery. Guys, I haven’t been …

Pearls of expression.

As Biden doubles down on the bad (yet deliberately distracting) hand of what was hoped to be an optically humanitarian policy of vaccine mandates, the masses are getting restless as well as fired… Solution? Criminalize the non-consenting as anti-vaccine, anti-science or anti-American “flat-earthers” while denying open discussion on such otherwise relevant topics as basic math, …

We own you.

At the same time, Treasury Secretary Yellen insists the IRS needs to step up, inspecting all transactions over $600: wouldn’t a central-bank digital currency make it easier, he asked, recognizing a Trojan horse when he sees one? Yellen also admitted in an interview that the $600 mark is not where tax evasion is happening. That’s …
