Linkskrieg Monday: Mickey to the National Parks

The original Mickey Mouse looked a little bit different and not so loveable, 1928

The cascade of socio-destructive propaganda being pumped out by Western universities these days is catastrophic: cisgenderism, transgenderism, heteronormativity, intersectionality, patriarchy, rape culture, racism, diversity, affirmative action, enrichment and toxic whiteness to mention but a few… a suppurating collection of ideological garbage that is infecting the minds of a whole generation of young people, perhaps several generations..

In which we start to see that it was Bloomberg that bought the Drudge Report after all.Testing Waters – Drudge: Bloomberg Considering Hillary Clinton as VP on Ticket…

WARREN: You know me, did the speech and then afterwards did a selfie line, and we were there for over an hour. People are coming through and they’re saying “thank you” and they’re given hugs and talking about what’s important to them. Young woman came up by herself and she said, “I’m a broke college student with a lot of student loan debt.” And she said, “I checked and I have six dollars in the bank. So I just gave three dollars to keep you in this fight.” That’s what we gotta do.

Pete Buttigieg is the millennial candidate in every way. Most likely his support came from his age cohort. Further, it was heavily female, with the male portion being the sorts, who support the case against consuming soy products. On the other hand, Klobochar is picking up the old Hillary vote. These are the old hens, who think having a female president is the only thing that matters. Her bitchy obnoxiousness reminds them of every fight they won with their ex-husband.

Huge red star might explode soon and next few weeks are critical – It’s well known Betelgeuse has no more than about 100,000 years left to burn and could start its death throes just about anytime between now and then. When it does go supernova, it’s expected to result in a dramatic light show that could be visible in daylight and appear brighter than the full moon for a few weeks. The last time humans were treated to such a sight was the 17th century.

Trump needs to compile a list of *every single* Obama appointee, and either ask for their resignations or fire their asses, no exceptions. This “resistance” bullshit has gone on far too long. And the anonymous guy who wrote that stupid “we are the resistance” piece for the NY Times? When they find out who he is, they should consider charging him with treason. Treason? Yeah, I said treason.

Democrats Are Depressed and in Deep Doo Doo – The Rush Limbaugh Show I’ll tell you, this Trump hatred has never been rational, and the irrationality has been amplified to the point that it’s delusional and almost poisonous. And you see the results of it. And it’s infected everybody on the left and the media. It’s infected elected Democrats and so forth. I think this is just a fascinating thing to admit: “People can’t figure out which of the people they are supposed to vote for, and people are waiting to come out and vote against Trump.”

Rebellion In the Knitting Community | I started to question everything. How many stories had I been sold that weren’t true? What if my perception of the other side is wrong? How is it possible that half the country is overtly racist? Is it possible that Trump derangement syndrome is a real thing, and had I been suffering from it for the past three years? And the biggest question of all was this: Did I hate Trump so much that I wanted to see my country fail just to spite him and everyone who voted for him? The answer to that question, for pretty much every member of the Democratic Party, is Yes.

The tally of 401k millionaires hits new high The number of 401k accounts with balances of at least $1 million hit 233,000 in the fourth quarter, up from the previous record of 200,000 in the third quarter and 212,000 more than a decade ago when stocks were just beginning to dig out from the financial crisis crash.

The Battle to Feed All of Humanity Is Over. Humanity Has Won – In his 1968 book The Population Bomb, Stanford University biologist and “overpopulation” alarmist Paul Ehrlich famously predicted that “The battle to feed all of humanity is over … hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now.” Between 1968 and 2017, the world’s population increased by 113 percent from 3.55 billion to 7.55 billion. Over the same time period, the average global food supply per person per day rose from 2,334 calories to 2,962—a 27 percent increase.

By Wednesday, the coronavirus had sickened more than forty thousand people there and killed more than a thousand. The disease had spread to at least twenty-four countries, sparking fears of a global scourge, as well as an economic chain reaction, as China’s economic behemoth fell silent. By the first week of February, home sales in China had fallen by ninety per cent compared with last February; car dealers predicted that the month’s sales would fall by up to eighty per cent, compared with last year. Half of China’s four-thousand-plus Starbucks were closed.

Trump Signs Biggest Wilderness Protection Bill in Decade, Designates 375,000 New Acres of Protected Land resident Donald Trump signed the country’s largest wilderness preservation legislation in a decade, providing widespread protections for Joshua Tree and Death Valley national parks.

Trump’s signing of the National Resources Management Act, or S.47, marked a surprisingly overwhelming bipartisan congressional effort and began with the environmental protection bill introduced by Alaska Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski in January. The bill expands federally protected land, where there can be no logging, drilling, mining or road construction, and establishes 375,000 new acres of wilderness across California, Oregon, New Mexico and Utah. The bill passed the Senate with a vote of 92-8 and the House with a vote of 362-63.

    Re Knitting and derangement
    I took the first Ambien on Sunday night. After six weeks of bad insomnia it was good to get some rest. Monday was good. I got a lot of work done on the project. By Tuesday I was hyper-active, and working on the project all day and late into the night. Thing is, though I didn’t feel hyper. Actually I was feeling kind of slow, and a little head-achey. By Wednesday I couldn’t believe how clear my head was. I could see things that no one understood. I was realizing how important my insight was on everything. I’d take a “break” from working on the manuscript to fire off five hundred word posts on Facebook, and Next Door. I was flaming the fuck out some fools, because they had it coming, and couldn’t get a point if it poked ’em in the eye. More than anything I had to get the whole project finished RIGHT NOW!

    By Thursday I was getting paranoid. But it didn’t feel like paranoia. I was so clear headed that I just understood things that others couldn’t grasp. The society was in collapse. Of course the forces of evil, were trying to ruin everything, especially the project. I was seeing mouse shit all over the floor. Lazy damn cats! Friday I got an email from the publisher saying they want to go forward with the project. It’s a go! But I wasn’t happy about it. This just meant more trouble. This was followed by an email from my partners saying that the LLC would be ready soon. I totally snapped. By then I was sure I was on a mission from God. I was channeling a powerful spirit that was driving the whole endeavor. They were trying to rip me off. How could I not have seen it?
    During this time I wasn’t really sleeping. The pill would knock me out for about three and a half hours, and then I’d wake up supercharged. But not like I was speeding. I can’t quite describe it, but

    I was totally unaware of what was happening to me.

    I sat up till after 1:00 AM Friday night explaining to My wife that I had ruined everything, and now I’d just give my partners all the files and walk away. If I got nothing, so what? Anything to see the project and the Mission through. I took two pills and went to bed.
    I woke up two hours later. On my way into the kitchen I had a moment of clarity. OH HOLY SHIT! I felt like I had been blackout drunk at party, and the next day someone was telling me that I’d pulled down my pants, and pissed on the floor in front of everyone. That’s when I threw the pills down the toilet. I scared me because they didn’t all go down on the first flush. I had my wife call the partners. I couldn’t trust myself on the phone.
    My sense of time is still distorted. It feels like I was on the pills for months, even though I know it was only six days. I sent emails to the publisher and my partners explaining. Nothing to worry about. Nothing has been ruined and the project is on stand-by until all the ducks are in a row, and we’re ready to fly.​
    This has been utterly terrifying, and I’m still badly shaken from it.
    But this stuff, Ambien is very widely used.. I wonder how much derangement is resulting from it. Think of Jordan Peterson and the Xanax. Ambien? Xanax? LSD is safer, and heroin is less toxic.

    damn John, it’s like you were channeling me from 1978. lol
    where can I get me some of this ambien stuff?
    Nah, never mind. At this point it would prolly push me over the edge and I’d never come back. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Right now, I’d even be hesitant if someone handed me a lit joint. But I’d prolly still partake of it. Afterall, it’s only a weed that turns into a flower in your mind. HA!

    I like a little psychotic break as much as the next guy, but I expect some euphoria, and swell hallucinations in the mix. Mouse poop, and headache are kind of, you know, not where it’s at.

    I had a family member who took Ambien briefly before a surgery she was anxious about. The hallucinations were epic; she didn’t take it again.

    For sleep, try a good magnesium supplement (avoid oxide if possible, but malate works well). If it upsets your gut too much, it also comes in lotion and spray forms and works really well for a lot of people.

    Odd weekend.
    For Valentines Day I cooked the GF a dinner of Baked Stuffed Lobster, with prosecco wine.
    Reading Aesop I woke up to the need to find some anti-viral surgical masks (Curad brand is the most common). Ran through the local pharmacies and Walmart, NaDa! Online equally futile; everybody is out of stock.
    Took some cute photos of GF cats playing with Amazon boxes, posted them.
    Got home and had a message on the answering machine, Bloomberg operative (live) trying to read from a script but giggling and laughing too much for success. (I think that had something to do with the Trump 2020 Re-elect message I recorded as a greeting)
    We went (Candlepin) bowling and I played a great five games with a 83 average!
    Never heard of Ambien.

    Just realized the old lady and the kids all actually think the Mueller report was a coverup and Trump is a Russian agent. I thought I could rationally explain it to them, but NPR has wasted them all. Jesus, this ledge is fucking narrow.
