    Hey kids, let’s all drive the left crazy by starting a rumor that on September 25th DJT # 45 will cross the Potomac with his legions and kick the administration out!

    He will loudly exclaim, “Alia Iacta Est!” and it will be HUGE! COLLOSAL! IMMENSE! SEMI-ETERNAL!

    On the 26th a really “Better than Ever Before” victory parade will be mounted on Pennsylvania Avenue where DJT will ride in an open top weapons’ carrier with a gold laurel crown upon his head.

    And wasnt it just a few days ago Kamala Harris was asked questions about the Border and the skedaddle from Afghanistan. Her response was she was to busy thinking about the earthquake in Haiti….but then jetted off to Vietnam and is planning on campaigning for Newsome in the recall election

    I was curious about Beau Bidens military service. Yes Army, Major. Jag Corps.
    After his death was awarded a Bronze Star and Legion of Merit by Army Chief of Staff Odienero (sp)

    He must have really had some tough cases requiring heroism

    Talk about sucking up the the VP at the time

  5. Dear God,

    I need two favors today.
    1) Please don’t let this be real. and
    2) Please don’t let me call this POS what I really want to call him.

    Thanks, TTYL

    General Michael Hayden is the current CIA director

    • I always find it hard to believe that people is such high offices have time to waste on twitter. Do note, however, that the first twit has a blue check mark. I do think it should be mandatory for these high muckety mucks to spend three weeks vacationing in the heartland at KOAs and other locations. Talking to real people outside of the beltway would do them a world of good.

        That my friend is why I actually admired Chairman Mao and the part of his 1960’s cultural revolution where the “intellectuals” all did a year in the rice paddies. We send them to the South of France on a “sabbatical”.

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      Former NSA and CIA director who put in the warrantless surveillance under Bush, a total critic of Trump, was in the news by saying “All Maga hat wearers and Unvaxxed should be sent to Afghanistan”

      I looked and hes not mentioned as CIA director.

      But the website might not have been updated yet I wouldnt believe with his record of intelligence failures he’d make it through confirmation.

      • Retired four-star Air Force General Michael Hayden served as director of the NSA from 1999-2005 and CIA from 2006-2009 and was exposed by the New York Times as the architect of the NSA’s warrantless wiretapping program of American citizens in 2006.

      • yeah, the Wiki page I checked to confirm he was current director is written in a misleading way. My fault.

  6. https://redstate.com/alexparker/2021/08/22/two-dozen-women-professors-drop-science-on-its-head-for-extreme-bias-n431370

    In all my years of scientific research, I have never not cited a reference because it was done by a female or a minority nor do I know of anyone else who has done this. I have read scientific articles and worked with women who are considered the authority in their specialties. There may have been bias in the system 50+ years ago but that is long past.

    • Stephen K. Trynosky says:

      I did not bother reading the whole thing because I just cannot retch that much.

      BUT, it does seem that they complain based on raw numbers without taking into account percentages.

      Now, let me suggest a turn of teh tables. Since most physicians these days going into pediatrics and obstetrics and gynecology are females and have been for some time. I betcha books and articles written in the present and recent past are primarily done by females and primarily cite females. Is that bias against males who are no longer a huge majority in the fields?

      Fifty some years ago, I was a Psych major who for a short time dipped his toe into graduate work. I remember ZERO bias among my male professors to the female students on both grad and undergrad levels. Also the literature was full of writers of both sexes and that despite the field being predominantly male at that time.

      The “abandonment” of scientific method by thee people is just frightening. I think with the Covid 19 epidemic and their politization of alternative treatments they have NO regard for human life if it does not serve some “higher” purpose. Their “higher” purpose of course.

    Time for a rant, gotta kick off a blog some day.

    eth·no·cen·trism
    /ˌeTHnōˈsentrizəm/
    Learn to pronounce
    noun
    evaluation of other cultures according to preconceptions originating in the standards and customs of one’s own culture.

    In the last 48 hour I have gone to war online twice in “friendly disagreements. One with someone commenting on an innocuous piece on a Gettysburg site where some gent, commenting on Strong Vincent, who died on the crest of Little Round Top, positioned his troops to deny the Confederates the opportunity to roll up the Union line. Now look, we are more than 150 years out, almost 160 from the event, yet his comment, “Our Texas boys really kicked your Union ass” seems absurd to me. Regardless of his comment the point is that everybody kicked everybody’s ass that day. Vincent died, Chamberlain became a national hero the Alabama and Texas boys went down in history for their unsuccessful but dogged fight. This guy and I are both Americans with a shared heritage yet I daresay we do NOT understand each other. He, more than I values his regional history and folklore quite differently than I. I think I can accept the differences, I don’t think he can get beyond his geographical bias.

    Now, before I go on to the second example, I have to point out that when I first got my Sociology book in college, I was amazed at the word defined above. I felt way back then that my countrymen, through my limited reading of history, never completely understood anything about .anybody else in the world. We fought people in places like Asia and were amazed that they did not play by our rules. Ditto across the Atlantic. We shipped aid around the globe, to Africa, the Middle East and South America only to find they despised us and our way of life. We never “got” them! This, of course, is going to come back and bite us big time in the ass over the next twenty or thirty years. The Central and South American crowd of peasants (not derogatory) and the unknown number of illiterate Afghans coming here may well crumble our entire society. The likelihood of them “adapting” to American culture is almost nil. Unlike 100 years back there will be no attempt by educators to understand that they must be assimilated for the good of the body politic. Their imported culture will be lauded as equal to anything we have and they likely will overwhelm us with most of us not even noticing till it is gone.

    Ok, now to case 2. A good internet friend started on the dangers we face yesterday. He placed his priorities as follows, Russia, Immigration, Crime in the streets, and finally China. Not an uneducated fellow but to place Russia at the top of the list to me was insane. But, I think, it is part of our ethnocentrism. Our Country jousted with geographical Russia for well over 70 years always looking at them the same as let’s say Western Europe. Somehow we assumed their values to be the same or very close to ours. What we never understood was their history.

    Who has taken the time to even realize that the nation of Russia in less than two generations, between 1914 and 1954 went through horrors that cannot even be imagined let alone compared to anything other than perhaps the Holocaust. That tragedy happened to a people, a religious minority, diverse in its own right not an entire nation.

    Where to begin? The First World War where Russian casualties dwarfed those of any other nation? The betrayed “liberal” revolution of 1917 where the Bolsheviks all but ate their rivals forcing whatever true liberalism existed from the country? The three year long Civil War as brutal as Tutsi’s vs. the Hutus making our own agony pale in comparison? The series of internal pogroms and purges throughout the late 1920’s and ’30’s culminating in the forced Ukrainian famine? World War Two, an exponential horror for the people of Russia compared to its predecessor? A post war return to the purges and pogroms which placed people like Solzenyetsin in Gulags? Finally, the Death of Stalin, unleashing a new era of confusion with there being very, very few people (survivors of Stalin) left in leadership with the capability to lead.

    Yes my friends, we do not understand Russia. No other country in the world has faced what they have. Unlike its only rival for the title of “most dysfunctional”, China, Russia pre WW 1 was one of the most powerful nations in the world at the pinnacle . It was torn asunder and like a Frankenstein monster patched together from left over pieces that did not quite fit together.

    Funny how when you attend a revival of that Karloff, James Whale film masterpiece,, “Frankenstein”, you can sense the sympathy for the monster from the audience. Too bad we cannot do the same for Mother Russia and its people. .

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      A friend of mine who is Russian, we have long online discussions daily about world events.

      I postulated that China will in the near future make a grab for Siberia and its resources. Especially if they succeed with Taiwan and the US does nothing along with claiming the entire S China Sea.

      His response was then China will experience a severe population reduction.

  9. Dale A Albrecht says:

    With what appears rge Biden administration reversing the order of withdrawal

    Is similar to the events leading up to Pearl Harbor. When the War Dept told Pearl ti gi ti the highest alert levels, unknown to them, Short had reversed the order of security levels.

    The Officers who followed these insane orders of exiting Afghanistan abandoning civilians while pulling out the means of protecting them first,

    SHOULD BE COURT MARTIALED. For not disobeying the orders they received. What could they have been thinking?

    But 1st to go should be Milley and the chiefs of staff.

  10. I watch Tucker on youtube. Whenever they split screen with a video it is covered with a picture of Trump. Am I the only one? What’s up with this?

  11. Aussie truckers going on strike over the vaxx mandates and border checkpoints.

  12. Heads up JAC. I’ve been watching these auditors for a while now. This guy is in your area for now. Thought you’d be interested.

    • adding. Some of these auditors are looking for their 15 minutes. The guy I posted is professional and has had much success. Another good one is Long Island Audit. My mind is blown watching them deescalate and educate.

    • Just A Citizen says:

      One little problem. It is NOT public property. They guy didn’t do his homework. The State licenses the liquor stores and controls how they operate. But they are privately owned and operated.

      Also, I believe Idaho passed a law a few years back preventing people from photographing the general public and then posting or publishing it without permission.

      The store in the video is on the main street which runs east and west thru downtown. This is part of the “old part” of town. New owners in the area are trying to upgrade businesses and improve the “quality” of clientele.

    • Just A Citizen says:

      Anita

      I do not know why the police chief agreed on State property. If this is true the “system” has changed since I looked into it a few years back. It is also interesting they said he could be in the parking lot when that is NOT public property either.

      Frankly I think the guy is a bid of a jerk. We don’t have many problems with police overstepping here. In fact both the city and Sherriff declined enforcing the mask mandates last year. The city police would only respond to specific complaints, not troll the parks like happened in southern Idaho.

      • I don’t particularly care for him either, but having watched many of his audits, he knows his stuff. He and his son have covered every state west of the Mississippi. They research every state’s law before going in. He won a hefty lawsuit a while back for false arrest on a trespass violation. It just amazes me how much hubris government employees have, while simultaneously not knowing state laws, much less honoring their oaths or even acknowledging the first amendment. He gets them every time. He’d just been in Montana. Totally different audits. Cops were still called but they handled it correctly and professionally on the two audits I saw. Word has gotten out about auditors around the country, so lots of times if cops are called they come in, side with the auditors, and its a done deal. I’m happy to see this kind of activism. I sometimes wish the cops could win these more, simply because as a general rule I’m pro cop. But the more I see of these audits, the less pro cop I become. Don’t even get me started on others such as city or federal employees. They really think they’re God and I’m glad they get schooled. Put another way…Its about time the public is pushing back.

        • In general I detest people who pick fights specifically so they can sue. We had a lawyer out here who would go to the small Mom & Pop wineries here in the foothills. Many just had gravel driveways and a small tasting room, essentially a farm. But since they did not have wheel chair ramps, lowered counters or ADA compliant restrooms, this numnuts would sue. He also went after one A&W stand in the central valley. The longtime owner would instruct the staff to assist any handicapped individuals over the threshhold. They sued him and he closed the stand since the profit would not cover the cost of suit or the building modifications. All the kids working there ended up out of work so the jerk could feel good about forcing ADA compliance on businesses that he fact did not care to frequent.

          • His mission is to educate as he’s said in many, many videos. Lots of cops are aware of these auditors now and have come peacefully and stopped complaints in their tracks. And then there are the people who are not aware of auditors, that’s where it gets interesting. He’s only sued a couple times and those were for false arrest. But I get what you’re saying.

    Why does the Biden administration with its latest debacle remind me of the Bud Abbott and Lou Costello routine “Who’s on First”

    Not withstanding one is a comedy routine and the other is deadly serious.

  14. Dale A Albrecht says:

    I see a judge has blocked another pipeline project that was well underway in Alaska.

    Going from energy independent to begging OPEC to increase production in 7 short months.

    Biden give OK to a Russian pipeline

    Can any of the super smart people here tell me how shutting off our production and moving the production to other countries with fewer concerns about the environment actually is helping abate global warming and climate change.

    • If it is the same report I saw, ConocoPhillips wants to open a new field. They probably need a feeder line to the main Alaskan pipeline. They ruled that their environmental impact statement did not include the impact of the final consumption of the oil (end user combustion) and the resulting emission, i.e., CO2. Now oil is fungible. If it is not US oil it will be foreign oil that we burn so it is a moot point. In fact foreign oil has to be tankered to the US so may in fact release more CO2 than domestic production. Now one must ask, was this a criteria that was required initially for the EIS or was it imposed at the last minute by the judge? The real push here by the environmentalists is to reduce the flow in the Alaskan pipeline below the minimum in which case it must be removed.

    Two Congressmen go to Kabul to see what is happening. The Administration and Pelosi throw a fit. The left wing apparatchiks are carping on the net about how these two endangered lives and took seats from desperate people. Which only shows how coordinated the propaganda machine really is.

    Here is one persons summary of the whole thing which I think hits some real key points. That is about chain of command deteriorating. From Red State’s Streiff.

    “Here’s what I think we learned from the trip. First, there is no way that all authorized Americans are getting out of Kabul. There is a de facto hostage situation of Biden’s making just waiting to happen. Second, the White House is spooked by the idea that they could lose control of the messaging. Third, there seems to be a break in the chain of command between those trying to get stuff done on the ground and their higher headquarters. Congressmen just don’t get manifested onto USAF aircraft, and no one in the Pentagon hears about it. They don’t walk around your area of operation for a day, asking questions and interacting with people, and someone not notify their headquarters. That speaks volumes for the contempt with which the people directing this operation are viewed.”

  16. Stephen K. Trynosky says:

    Wonder what it will look like for the last planes that leave. Who will clear the runways, the Afghan National Army?

    Wonder if anyone will be pissed off enough by the abandonment to take a shot or two at them?

  18. How many people do we have outside Kabul?

    • Stephen K. Trynosky says:

      I think you can safely say your guess is as good as Jen Psaki’s.

      Now, what I want to know, is what rocket scientist thought it a good idea to do a school trip to Afghanistan?

      • Dale A Albrecht says:

        As far as I’m concerned journalists are on their own. That class trip was sheer lunacy. All others should have been out if there months ago. As though the writing has not been on the wall since last year.

  19. Stephen K. Trynosky says:

    Now, if we had any moral authority left, which we do not, we would surge into Kabul, clean things up, kill a whole lot of people, rescue our folks and leave. Robert Heinlein posed the question in “Starship Troopers” what do you do if the enemy is holding 10,000 of your people, or how about 1,000 or 100 or ONE? The answer should always be the same.

  20. Stephen K. Trynosky says:

    I must admit, unfortunately, that Donald J. Trump did in fact make one huge mistake. When fighting those ISIS characters NO PRISONERS should have been the order! We picked them up in Iraq and Syria the shipped them back home to Afghanistan. BIG ERROR!

    • I’m reading the Sword and the Scimitar. The mass murders committed by the Muslims during their conquests are out of this world. They killed millions all totaled. They sold millions more into slavery.

      • Stephen K. Trynosky says:

        Mr. Ray, one might say, “Don’t mess with success”.

        Up until Jefferson overstepped his authority by taking on the North African MUSLIM pirates, the powerful European states paid protection money. In the century prior to Jefferson’s incursion conservative estimates are that the Muslims took 1,500,000 slaves, mostly female, from Scandinavia through the British Isles, through Southern France and into Spain. The blonde, or redhead blue or green eyed were preferred.

        • Dale A Albrecht says:

          Muslim raiders were even attacking English ports taking women into slavery. Have to look up the last dates but they were into the 1700’s if I remember correctly

  21. Ok JAC, last one. He is knocking on your door. Very good explanation of what he does in this one,. and very good response by the CDA PD. My bet is word got out from the first audit.

      • Just A Citizen says:

        This guy is an absolute ASS. Argumentative and aggressive in his approach right from the start. Sarcastic ASSHAT. Sorry Anita but the guy deserves having someone break his face. He DOES want to be argumentative.

        By the way, this office is the Health and Welfare office where at risk families and clients come. It also houses the Criminal background checks. Lil JAC, Spousal Unit Leader and I have been there many times. The building is secured inside as well.

        If these two clowns had been there when I and Lil’ JAC and I arrives my son would have had a melt down because they were “staring at him” and “taking my picture’. Showing you how insensitive he is.

        This guy is not educating anyone. Did you notice how non confrontational the Police were in both of these?

        • So, not your cup of tea, I see. I’ve watched so many of these from him and others that I can deal with his style even if I don’t like it. I came across these audits by stumbling across an audit the audit video where THAT guy gets into the legalese of the case at hand. Maybe that being my first exposure to audits gave me a different perspective on audits in general.

          The first video made me think of you. The second…I was pretty sure you and lil JAC had been in that particular building, and figured you’d be interested.

          Argumentative or not, they stand for our rights and keep govt employees in check. We’ve all mentioned from time to time, the hubris of these employees. Why so much fear of a camera when they are recorded for their entire shifts anyway? I’ll keep watching them.

          • Had to put my raw chicken to the side for a second to re watch the first video since you said the cops were non confrontational, because that wasn’t how I remembered the first one. First, she told the liquor store manager that they WERE allowed to film. That should have been the end of it. But then she SOLICITS a trespass…:Do you want him trespassed?…That is not allowed. A trespass request has to be organic, not solicited. So whether the cop actually knows the law or not is up in the air. In the end, the cops scattered in a big hurry, because they knew he was right. Can you imagine how many times the auditor has come across just that violation of law. Probably has something to do with his attitude.

        Mis-read the word forever.
        The better schools in Los Angeles were always the Catholic schools. There were an equal number of HS as public HS. You did not have to be Catholic to attend. It was a rare public HS that was equal to or better. When the city started bussing inner city kids and taking an equal number of suburban kids and shipping them to the inner city the private schools had a boom. My HS today is technically a minority school yet the demographics of the area have not changed.

        In 1969 we were not allowed to play a night game at an inner city school. Daytime only. NO spectators. Only the cheerleaders. And a full police cordon around the school. That was the “City of Angels”

        Today the school is 1/2 the size it was 50 years ago.

    The semi final pits two undefeated teams against two one loss teams in a tourney that is double elimination, up to that game.

    This year both one loss teams beat the undefeated teams. The winner of the semi final games play for the Championship while the previously undefeated teams play for 3rd and 4th place. This just isn’t right in my book.

    Note, the 2nd place team will have two losses this year while the 3rd place team, Hawaii, has only one loss.

    We thought Saigon was bad, this is 100 times worse. This was created and played out by deliberate actions by the pentagon and Biden administration.

    I guess in the new budget and arms appropriation theyve ordered all new equipment. At least after WWII leaving “inexpensive” battle worn equipment was justified. At least it was not abandoned to the enemy..

    • Nothing short of betrayal and might be treason. The days ahead will be interesting as people’s anger shows more.

    • It sure makes it tough to remain an officer with principles and honor. Almost do not want to be associated with the field grade officers of today…no honor…no dignity. I am often asked about what is going on and how would I have handled the Afghanistan situation and it is easy to answer but hard to grasp. The younger officers of today are simply not taught the code. West Point has changed…..everything has changed. The statement that I made that contributed to Mathius “cuttin’ and runnin”….still stands. The “Rosie the Riveter” days are over. The attitude of “gettin’ it done” are gone…..and that is a shame.

      I will continue to impart what I can when I can to the younger officers until they pull me off the border…..but it is shameful what is happening. I just hope that people finally get enough of this.

      • Thanks for your comment and all your efforts. At this point in time it is a rear guard effort. I was just watching a youtube video of a huge crowed being processed at the border. It was about 40 min long but about 15 minutes in youtube cut it off. Where are the whistle blowers? I feel like we are in 1930s Germany and everybody is too scared to speak up.

        • Hi TRay…I often think about you and the fires. Too bad about Tahoe….great skiing and scenery. Every time I bowl in Reno, I always make the South Lake and Truckee trek.

          • Mostly clear this am but can still smell smoke. They are evacuating the Nevada side of South Lake Tahoe. Over 200K acres now. They are getting a handle on the west side of the fire nearest to us but the east side is still out of control. They are trying to herd the fire around SLT and push it into Nevada.

            We have lived here for 29 years. In that time 30% of the county has burned in 3 major fires plus smaller ones. Over 60% of the forest uphill from us has burned. We had 2 large saw mills when we moved here. Both have been closed down for over a decade. The nearest sawmill is in Auburn so they have to truck the logs down the hill on US50 into Sacramento and back uphill on I80. The secondary roads are too narrow, twisty and steep to handle the log trucks. If everything goes as normal, salvage operations will not start for at least a year at which time they only have 6 months to remove the timber. There is not enough sawmill capacity to take it all considering the other major fires in the area.

            • Yes, we had a home for years in the New Mexico Mountains in Jemez Springs by the Vallecito…it was a second home for get aways…elevation 7800 where we were….check out the recent fires of the last 10 years..especially the Los Alamos fire…..we watched it burn the ridgel line about 1/2 mile from us but the winds took it the other direction. Three major fires in 10 years…we bailed out of there because the new rules do not allow brush clearing in the forests….

    I talked for a long tie today with a friend. She’s a single mom. 3 kids. Eldest a daughter just turned 13. School started this past week or so.
    She told this morning she dropped the kids off and went into the admin offices asking where are the bike racks on the school grounds. So the kids can ride their bikes instead of the bus or her taking them etc The schools answer was we dont have bike racks or anywhere kids can keep their bikes if they ride. Luckily the kids are in shape from other activities. Understand the roads are back roads in a high end golf community.

    Her youngest son the other day was brought home by the police. Within sight of the house is a creek that wanders through the area. Wonderful spot for kids to be kids. Anyway he likes standing in the bridge. Looking at the creek and wildlife. He was alone. A nosey busybody called the police because he was not accompanied by a parent. You sit on Andrea’s porch and you can see the Creek and bridge. About 50 yards away. Wade is 10. Good kid, curious as hell about wildlife. Canoeing kayaking sailing with mom. Camping fishing

    What is with people today?

    • Gone are the days when a kid can run out of the house, jump on a bike and come home when the street lights come and never get into any trouble the whole time. Now are kids are not adults until they are 26.

        Heck…the neighbors of my parents when they lived lived in NY, near where Mathius lives. Had 3 kids. One was still in HS. The oldest was in his early 30’s. They all still lived at home. Couldnt afford to move out on their own in the village or neighboring towns. This was the mid to late 70’s.

    In the largest health care fraud settlement in history, pharmaceutical giant Pfizer must pay $2.3 billion to resolve criminal and civil allegations that the company illegally promoted uses of four of its drugs, including the painkiller Bextra, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Wednesday.

    Besides Bextra, the drugs were Geodon, an antipsychotic; Zyvox, an antibiotic; and Lyrica, an anti-epileptic drug. Once the Food and Drug Administration approves drugs, doctors can prescribe them off-label for any use, but makers can’t market them for anything other than approved uses.

    There were also listed several other multi billion dollar settlements with Johnson &Johnson and GlaxoSmithKline previously.

    I just read that Pfizer is developing a 2X a day pill to take along with the jabs and boosters to combat Covid.

      The lawsuit racket! regardless of the “hype” of the manufacturer, it is the prescribing physician who bears final responsibility. Johnny got dead on OXY because his Dr. Feelgood prescribed it.

  41. A DC district court judge on Thursday sentenced a man to jail for viewing content online that suggested the 2020 election was fraudulently stolen.

    The man, Douglas Jensen, had been released on July 13 after a months-long incarceration in a DC jail for allegedly participating in the Jan. 6 rally at the US Capitol.

    One condition set by US District Judge Timothy Kelly upon Jensen’s pretrial release was he refrain from going online, “specifically to stream election fraud conspiracy theory content,” reports Buzzfeed News.

    During an unannounced compliance check, officers found Jensen in his garage streaming unidentified content from Rumble, which prosecutors claimed was a popular conservative platform.

    “Jensen admitted to the court officer that he’d also spent two days watching a ‘cyber symposium’ hosted by MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, one of the most prominent proponents of election fraud conspiracy theories,” writes Buzzfeed.

    After Jensen’s lawyer Christopher Davis argued his client posed no threat to public safety and that he should not go to jail despite violating the terms of his release, an unconvinced Judge Kelly moved to send him back to prison.

    “He’s simply unable to follow the conditions I’ve set out,” the judge said.

    The case is exemplary of how a person’s freedom and protections under the First Amendment can be instantly stripped away at a district judge’s whim.

    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
    Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
    Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
    Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
    Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
    Bud: ‘Yes.’
    Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
    Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
    Lou: ‘So what the heck does the vaccine do?’
    Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
    Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
    Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
    Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.
    Bud: ‘Ok.’
    Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
    Bud: ‘That’s right.’
    Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Certainly.’
    Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
    Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
    Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
    Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
    Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
    Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’
    Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
    Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
    Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
    Bud: ‘I know.’
    Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
    Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
    Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
    Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
    Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
    Bud: ‘Correct.’
    Lou: ‘Why not?’
    Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
    Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
    Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
    Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
    Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
    Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
    Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
    Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’

    And ignoring when properly used has proven effective with warding off Covid and minimizing effects of the virus if testing positive early.

  52. WASHINGTON, D.C.—Democrats in Congress have condemned the recent election integrity law passed in Texas. In addition to the laws being extremely racist, misogynistic, and homophobic, Democrat politicians are saying that such laws will lead to a devastating decline in cheating.

    “Cheating is the lifeblood of LGBTQ+ culture, and ballot harvesting is the cornerstone of black American culture,” said AOC in a speech to her constituents in the World Economic Forum. “In addition—like, so many women will be negatively impacted by the male gaze of partisan poll-watchers. This is literal fascism guys.”

    Experts warn that if more states pass similar laws, it may empower far-far-right candidates to win elections, as cheating and fraud will decline sharply.

    “This is a white supremacist country,” AOC continued, “so we know that free and fair elections without any fraud will lead to more white supremacists being elected. White supremacists like Larry Elder. Like, I literally can’t even.”

    “Say—I should tweet that.” She then pulled out her phone and began tweeting.

    Leftists have called for more relaxed voting with fewer protections against fraud, so that only good people will be elected, like in California and New York. Frustrated Democrats have promised to leave Texas to live in states where the voting laws aren’t evil and racist. Texas Governor Greg Abbot is currently looking at additional legislation to see if he can make more Democrats leave.

  53. Dale A Albrecht says:

    And the Democrats called Trump a dictator and fascist.

    Biden fits the definition to the letter. New EO. All companies over 100 employees. Orders vaccination or testing every few weeks or face $14000 fines per employee. Granted he doesn’t remember or know squat but as Truman said ling ago “The Buck Stops Here”

    Did you see the Director of WHO wants the richer nations to stop the third round of jabs. We’re apparently hogging the available vaccines

    Theyve got to remove the free pass the pharmacuetical companies have from any liability if they make this still experimental jab mandatory.

    So far I’ve not seen it stop nothing but profits for big pharma. Didnt Biden and Harris campaign theyll never take the vaccine having been developed under the Trump admin.

    This’ll gut the military

    I’m really warming to the idea of officially reinstating the “Spoils System” Biden has no problem doing it, and Trumps admin was really hampered by him not really cleaning house.

    • Dale A Albrecht says:

      I’m just waiting for the next shoe to drop. Anyone on Medicare or VA medical benefits will be required to be vaccinated or be dropped or receive very limited services

      Just think how many officers will resign and DD’s will be issued for refusing the experimental jab. I dont care what the FDA says. They’re un an incestuous relationship with the NIH and big pharma and the Wuhan lab

      • They have told the lies so often that they now believe them themselves. This is clearly illegal. You cannot be forced to take an experimental drug w/o your consent. Threatening your job is official government coercion. We pay our taxes at the point of a gun, now we get the jab the same way. I no longer recognize this country. It has gone off the deep end.

  57. Anybody know how long I have to worry about catching the cooties? Son tested positive Monday, with mild symptoms. He and three others hung out the previous Thursday for exactly 20 minutes, that’s all it took. First buddy probably caught it from a college party, he tested positive on Friday. Second buddy tested positive Monday and since son had symptoms, he also tested positive Monday. Forth buddy, no symptoms, no test.

    I have had no symptoms, but am on paid quarantine until the 21st. I could get used to this. No traffic at the house. Beautiful weather. Son is freaked out about me catching it and has been using downstairs bathroom and wiping all door knobs and switches behind him. Wears mask and gloves when out of his room. This place hasn’t been this quiet or germ free ever, and I haven’t lifted a finger about it.

    Still, when do I quit worrying about catching it?

    • Dose up with Vit C & D3 plus zinc. If you can get invermectin, I would consider that as well. Not sure what the incubation period is but it seems to faster than some others. It is normally 2 weeks for most childhood diseases.

      My sister-in-law came down with it a couple of weeks ago. She passed it to my brother. He tested positive but has not had any symptoms that I have heard of despite severe Parkinson’s. She is diabetic and has been in, out and back in the hospital and in and out of ICU with breathing and kidney problems. She is doing better but still hospitalized. Both had the vaccine. Good luck. I feel we are all doomed to get it at some point. This is here forever like colds and the flu. Damn Fauci and the Chinese for their stupid research programs.

      Good luck with Youngstown. PSU plays Ball St.

      • I did go grab D3 and Zinc…buy one get one free no less! Been reading of Ivermectin shortages and such so haven’t tried to actually get it. Been soaking up free Vit D from the sun as well as eating my veggies….glad they’re fresh outta the ground right now, Yum. Fingers crossed.

  58. President Biden announced tonight that all US citizens will be microchipped for the purpose of contact tracing. Vaccinations are not enough to stop the spread of Corona virus. We need to be able to track all individuals who have come in contact with infected persons. While most Americans have smart phones, these are not reliable enough since they can be left at home. Also we cannot trace individuals who do not have this technology. So starting On Oct. 1, we will begin to microchip all US citizens and legal US residents. This will make contract tracing much more efficient and allow us to quarantine any potentially infected individuals whether they show symptoms or not. Computers and phones will be programmed to read the RFID from nearby microchips and report locations to a central database. This will also allow us to automatically collect census data.

    PS: Phone and computer apps will embed RFID information in all emails, documents and online posts created by the tagged individual.

    This technology is for your benefit and the greater good of your fellow countrymen.

Then returned to Russia by the Germans in a sealed railway car to knock russia out of WWI. Succeeded and final fulfilled his dream of murdering the since abdicated czar a d his family.

The how did the virus literally simultaneously breakout around the world. I would ever have quessed Wuhan had that many international tourists either to or from.

He ate from paper plates, but I had to get after him through the week to at least bring the silverware outta there. He personally washed up 12 drinking glasses. 😆 Thank God its over. Avoiding someone with the bug is a full time job! I’m still off til the 22nd. Win for me.

    Granted there were many reasons for the fall of the “western” roman empire but here are 3 biggies.
    1) excessive taxation. People finally said what the F**k and started selling themselves into slavery.
    2) roman citizenshio was a very valued thing. When they started granting citizenship to anybody especially those who really couldnt care less.
    3) debasing the currency. Gold, silver bronze copper. Had real value based on scarcity. As time went on more and more lead was introduced into the coinage. And in the end was valueless. Today we’ve got the alchemist dream come true but it’s just bits and bytes on a ledger sheet created out of thin air

    Just who in the heck is supporting all these “migrants” coming up from latin america? They never show encampments. Just masses of fairly well dressed and fed people. After an alleged trek the length of Mexico through jungle and desert I’d think theyd be just a bit bedraggled.

    There has to e something legally States can do against this clearly unlawful entry and deliberate attempt by Biden and Harris to collapse the country

    • Dale, I do not understand how they are getting away with this. They are now going to control the distribution of monoclonal antibodies. They already discourage the use of HCQ and invermectin both proven to be effective and cheap. They do not recognize natural immunity.

      We have unlimited immigration from Central America with no covid screening or treatment. As you say these people have good cloths and are probably carrying expensive phones. They pay thousands of dollars to the coyotes. So these are not penniless people. We are also importing Afghans with very little screening who are bringing in long controlled diseases. Again, no shots being required. Yet us old white people are the biggest danger.

      They want to raise taxes which will squelch the economy in addition to spending gobs of money on things we do not need thus creating more inflation.

      Vaxxing is being mandated even though it is now clear the vax does not work. We mask are kids thus putting them in greater danger. Science be damned, just do what we say. Vax passports are coming.

      International relations are a mess. NATO is probably dead although that may be good. Will France and Germany step up their defense spending now and defend themselves. Korea is tossing rockets around again.

      We are destroying domestic energy (oil) production but encouraging it over seas. Nukes are still forbidden. Solar and wind will now be more heavily subsidized to the detriment of nuclear and fossil fuels. Will they demand GPS units for all cars so we can be tracked?

      Is there a master plan to destroy the USA? And where are the majority of the people? It is past time to wake up.

        The director of WHO says there’s no evidence that natural immunity or antibodies from having covid before works.

        Got to be better than the “vaccines”

        • Israel reported it was 5x better than the vaccine based on delta variant hospitalizations.

          One state in India has virtually stopped the spread of Covid by issuing ivermectin kits. If you get sick or exposed to a sick individual, take the pills according the instructions. Cost is under $3.

          • Dale A Albrecht says:

            Can you post the link for the Israel report.

            • I have to go to work this am (so much for being retired). What I remember reading is that their hospitals were full of Delta patients. 60% were unvaxxed, 39% were vaxxed and 1% were natural immunity. From that the calculated the effectivity of the vaccine vs natural. Given that Israel is over 75% vaxxed, the numbers are significant showing that the vaccine is only partially successful.

      • Now they want all your bank transactions as well. Did the Soviets even go that far?

        I listened to some of Gruesom’s victory speech. It was all feel good stuff, gay rights, women’s rights, climate change, defeating the evil Trump Republicans, Covid safety,…. Not one thing about actually solving the real problems facing the state, high taxes, high housing, no water, intermittent electricity, fires, infrastructure, bad business climate,… If he gets reelected next year this state is doomed (more doomed).
