World Economies Roundup

First, and perhaps most importantly – China. At this point, there seems to be no way to make long-term money from China. They have a history of bad faith: Ruling against non-Chinese companies in court (no matter what the facts of the case). Delivering shoddy products – and, that’s in GOOD times! Imagine how bad …

Corporate Media, Despite Its Unsavory Precedents, Seems Doomed

Here is what has made the phrase Corporate Media the best way to describe America’s version of Pravda and Izvestia. Fascists hate real journalists and maintain well paid forces to shut them down. Why is Corp media likely doomed? Here is a complaint that turned up on FB that has rung quite a lot of …

Pearls of expression.

Oil Price[s] acts like [they’re] managed by Klaus Schwab, George Soros, Bill Gates, the Biden Regime, Lindsey Graham, the ghost of John McCain, and Greta Thunberg. [They are the result of] Russophobic, cheerlead[er]s for “green” “energy”, and [these cheerleaders are] consistently wrong about everything related to energy. Case in point: Now the country [Germany] faces …

Preparing for the Next Battles

Yeah, Battles – plural. It’s not gonna be over soon, no matter WHO is elected, in 2022, or in 2024. Ace of Spades had a nice post today, in which he identifies some of the issues and battlegrounds. He is pessimistic – but realistic. The Dobbs decision is NOT the end of the trail. Nor …

I’m Not SAYING That I’m Falling Apart…

…but, I’m hobbling around today. My toe had a smackdown encounter with the leg of a wooden chair in my daughter’s living room. The toe lost, and is blackened and swollen. As a result of my need to place weight gingerly on the right foot, my left ankle has compensated by becoming sore and stiff, …

Just what are we celebrating today?

We won our independence from England but do we really have any of our freedoms left? After 1865 the American government’s “just” powers were no longer derived from the consent of the governed, as Jefferson so eloquently stated in the Declaration of Independence, but by the whims of politicians and bureaucrats in Washington, D.C. and …

Transgressive Artists And Their Transcrap

     Count on a lover of words to mangle them artistically. Of course, “art” doesn’t mean what it once did, but we’ll get to that in a moment.      “Transgressive” is one of those words: the sort that appear only in very specific contexts. Such words are often used to defy some near-universal understanding, or …

Deliberate destruction.

Food production and the fossil fuel industries are not the only ones on the globalists’ chopping block. Last weekend I was invited to a zoom call with the German firebrand “MEP Christine Anderson.” who gave us a brief report about the recent vote in the EU parliament to extend the Covid pass requirement for another …

Astonishment ensues.

Astonishment among the clueless, vicious, arrogant bastards at the U.S. Department of State, that is. If only we had had some warning. Some inkling of trouble. Some premonition. [Shrug emoji.] I could point out that in all of Putin’s public statements during the months preceding the special operation, there is not the slightest evidence that …

What Do the Changes in Supreme Court Decisions Mean?

It does NOT mean that they will be “swinging right”. I don’t seriously see the SP Justices dragging their colleagues over to the other side, in the short term or the long term. Most of them have kept their basic philosophy intact through changes in government or changes in the court. What it MIGHT mean …

So, Non-Americans With No Criminal Conviction…

Just HAPPEN to have their cases dropped – those are the cases for crossing the border illegally – just in ltime for them to be registered, and vote (or, have some OTHER person/organization do so for them) in the Congressional elections. Why, who could be against THAT? Haters, that’s who.

Pearls of expression.

These days, this place on the planet that used to be a nation groans under a tribulation of bad ideas, bad choices, bad conduct, bad management, and bad faith. We have not been so ripe for regime change since 1776. A ruling Party of Chaos is doing absolutely everything to disorder our lives and there …

The Inconsistencies of Leftist Arguments

And, here is a prime example: AOC is bloviating about the Dobbs decision, saying that it will kill women, and that too many children live in poverty. Really? Because maternal deaths have plummeted since the mid-20th century. With prenatal health care, delivery is often safer than abortion for the mother, and certainly safer for the …

A Tough Day

My daughter was visiting, and it had been good, after a rough start. She’d been in an accident just a short distance from our house. No injuries, but her car was damaged. Fortunately, it can be repaired, and her insurance company is on the job of getting it back in operation. But, no, the problem …

What 6 Cents Of Every Dollar Looks Like

Take someone like me, who gets around $900 (gross) Social Security each month. If we shaved off 6 cents for every dollar spent, I would receive $5.40 less. Every month, meaning that, over the course of a year, I would receive just a smidge under $65 less. Correction: that number should be $54. 00. I …

What the News is Ignoring

Pretty much everything. If you’re looking for breaking stories, you’re wasting your time watching the well-paid establishment. Nice racket. Collect Big Bucks for parroting Dem press releases and talking points. Interview with a gentle touch tired old Dems, from their flunkies, to long-out-of-office has-beens and never-weres, and – occasionally – get a carefully edited interview …

The Dobbs Decision

Late in coming, but welcome – I wrote about it (and other related topics) here.

My Health, Post-Covid

I’m not fully recovered. Still have diminished sense of smell, still easily tired (I nap a lot), and haven’t been able to fully resume my walking regime. So, overall, maybe 75% better. I DID, as it happens, have the original 2-shot Moderna injections, in April 2021. I wasn’t forced by work, but by relentless nagging …

Let’s Transform Labor Day

And, in the process, honor those laborers who have specialized knowledge that is worth something in the labor market. Now, this story is one that points out the special value to America of some very highly qualified craftsmen. But, many types of knowledge need to be honored: Those that learned how to do their job …

Nixon’s Revenge

I’d been a hard-core Democrat in in the early 1970’s. At that point, I was working lunches and cocktail hour as a bartender, and had time to watch the Watergate hearings in the afternoon. It’s hard for people today to imagine just how addictive they were. The coverage was everywhere – newspapers (at that point, …
