“A thousand truths do not mark a man as a truth-teller, but a single lie marks him as a damned liar….Lying to other people is your business, but I tell you this: once a man gets a reputation as a liar, he might as well be struck dumb, for people do not listen to the wind.” — [Robert A.

The public at large is in a state of agitation and distress because democrats and liberals have taken control of the situation with the China Virus, and they have done nothing about it apart from shaming, censoring and criminalizing anyone who mentions it’s a China Virus.
Their message to the public is one of “Don’t you worry, we’re going to kick COVID’s butt” and the public’s response is “That’s why we’re worried.” Remember, we’re still waiting for this crew to kick Climate Change‘s butt, and poverty‘s butt, and illiteracy‘s butt, and bigotry‘s butt, and crime in inner cities‘ butt, and stagnant wages & high cost of living‘s butts, and and and and……… House of Eratosthenes
Classrooms without Walls: A Forgotten Age of Open-air SchoolsIn the early 20th century, open air schools became fairly common in Northern Europe, originally designed to prevent and combat the widespread rise of tuberculosis that occurred in the period leading up to the Second World War. Schools were built on the concept that exposure to fresh air, good ventilation, and exposure to the outside were paramount!

Danger, Cover Blowing | Kunstler It’s also possible that the hyped “delta surge,” and all the threats prompted by it, are just a manufactured distraction from the slow-moving train-wreck of “the most secure election in US history” narrative as actual proof emerges of, yes, widespread fraud in 2020. Who would be surprised, by the way, if our friendly, local Intel Community wasn’t somehow behind all of that, both the election fraud and the distractions — and especially the management of the news about it that people get from TV-land and the remaining major newspapers?
Speaking of people here illegally, the same government officials who bemoan the new “surge” in virus cases are the very ones deliberately allowing an unchecked surge of border-jumpers from all corners of the world to enter the USA from Mexico, many of them infected with new strains of Covid-19. And, if that wasn’t fiendish enough, the regime is putting them on airplanes and buses to towns all over America like fifty-thousand Typhoid Marys. That is, the federal government is doing all it can to worsen the spread of new strains of Covid-19.

David Warren: What Does God Say? Not only has the human voice lapsed, except as a source of unpleasant noise, but song and music have ceased to convey what was conventionally thought of as the contemplative. Music, and song, have become lost arts today, in our march to human extinction. Rather than providing a source of living joy, they are a source of pain and sadness (except where sadness was allied to beauty).

This Australian River Valley Is Home to the World’s Largest Earthworms No one really knows how giant Gippsland earthworms copulate, as surfacing seems unlikely due to the threat of predators, and their underground burrows are barely wide enough for one specimen to pass through at a time. Some scientists theorize that the worms can lengthen their bodies, thus becoming slim enough for two of them to fit in the burrows alongside each other, but no one really knows for sure how it happens.

The reason porch piracy is so rampant is that it is in effect legal. There are no moral proscriptions against theft in a country run by socialists, who are thieves by definition. The police are too busy keeping their heads down to be a factor, not that they can be everywhere anyway.
This is NOT okay This pig-ignorant little Nazi [Fauci], remember, has held a powerful and remunerative position in the federal government for his entire career, since 1968. The poisonous dwarf has “served” under five Presidents—two Democrat-Socialist, three Repugnican. And in his view, the mandate of freedom and individual self-determination upon which this nation was founded can be flippantly discarded with no more than a casual wave of his mighty hand, the US Constitution be damned. He knows virtually nothing of the most fundamental American ideals, and cares about them even less.
A Myth Named Afghanistan – Islamic terrorist insurgencies are expanding. Demographics mean that there will increasingly be more of them than there are of us and they will seek, as the Nazis did, Lebensraum or Breathing Room, through migration or immigration, colonization or conquest. Either way there will be enemies without and within whose organization and capabilities will continue to increase even as ours decay.

Ahh, the Bowden Spacelander. Strange old machine. I take my vintage Schwinns out to ride an antique and classic bike gathering every month. The Spacelander bike, along with the 1930’s vintage Elgins, and Shelby’s, are the holy grails of cycling. Truth to tell, I think the Bowden is ugly. If the opportunity, came up, though, an Elgin Bluebird, or a Shelby Airflow could easily put a five figure dent in my savings account. (and my wife would kill me)
The Prius death count needs to increase. Even the auto is getting fed-up with the pricks who drive them. Oh, it was a thief. I predict there will be a class action law suit against Prius because of the need to jack them up to steal the CC. Prius will be forced to make them street accessible. Prius will have to compensate the families of kilt thieves by providing them with free CCs as compensation.
Cops creeping on diners in France or wherever that vid is from. When the cops, and the army, are facing inward at the middle-class citizens, then you’ve entered the socialist dystopian part of your national history. These cops are one breath away from being the Stasi.
I’ll write more about A-Fag-istan; you know it. Of course it isn’t a country. We should have just taken the SOB and kept it. I mean if we wanted to stop A-Q, and secured ourselves from more large terror attacks, we would need their hole-in-the-wall gang HQ. Too harsh? Interesting…I play to win. One new move we need to make is to place our long, large heel on the nuts of the Pakis, and compress.
The people of Afghanistan are so screwed but they’re thanking Biden anyway. The Unz on Afghanistan. Up next….televised beheadings. Biden should volunteer to be first.
Come on man! The very day The United States entered Afghanistan,, sealed their fate. This was never a war to win, free a suppressed people,,,,,,,,,,this was always about MONEY!. Our military’s nothing more then hired guns.
As I’ve aged I’ve recognized that when I hear THE US has a strategic interest in any region, its code for, BIG BUSINESS wanting to steal that regions resources. Exploit the area, the people living there.
Ome of the most important lessons to come out of astan is this. Exactly which side demonstrated the discipline to win? Who eat bugs, lived in caves, fought in sandals, went to battle with what was on their backs?
Boys and girls, we here in the US lack that “self discipline”, that dogged focus. It is We The People whom are responsible for the shit show we call govt. you want to see who’s responsible,,,,,,,,, go look in the fucking mirror.
We are OFFICIALLY a communist nation now! Became one with the blatant theft of a presidential election.
And the “blog daddies “bark even louder”,,,,,,,,,,, mean while Everybody asks what’s for dinner!,,,,,,,,not understanding WE were what was for dinner. We took in in the ass, didn’t even flinch.
The still greatest nation on the planet,,,,,,,, and we’re about to flush everything our fathers and grandfathers accomplished down the drain, for a extra serving of bullshit, wish soup.
HEY, why don’t we ask the blogdaddies just what they would do, no,,,,,,,,,what their willing to do, other then pound the keyboards. Anybody seeing the parallels between our pentagon leaders and the blog daddies yet ? Na, we’re all comfortably numb. Its just easier this way.
Comfortably numb? You got that right, Dirk.
Okay (okay, okay, okay)
Just a little pinprick
There’ll be no more, ah
But you may feel a little sick
Can you stand up?
I do believe it’s working, good
That’ll keep you going through the show
Come on it’s time to go
There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move but I can’t hear what you’re saying
When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye
I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I have become comfortably numb
What’s old is new again…
the front fork on this new bike is very similar to the fork on that old Bowden Spacelander.

Dirk, I share your lament in regards to the pounding of keyboards while America continues to descend into totalitarianism.
With that said, while I pound the keyboard to post this comment, what can I do alone? Well, I could go on a one man killing spree, but it would accomplish nothing. Even if I was an adept at concealment, ambush, and evasion, all that would be gained would be some notoriety for myself, and some excellent fodder for the propaganda mills, and the full power of the state would fall upon me.
I think Americans currently sit about where the Revolutionary War colonists sat. 40% – 45% patriots, 40% neutral going along to get along, and 15% to 20% true dyed in the wool commies (Socialists/Fascists/Powerists they’re all the same) see here.
What I am ready to do, based upon that analysis, is, if a well known, qualified military leader were to initiate a call up to do battle against the totalitarianism rolling over America, with the vocal and monetary support of well known business owners, I’d load up my ruck and join up immediately. I do not think that I am the only man who would answer such a call. I cannot support simple assassination squads going door to door, though I understand the appeal. Like Claire Wolfe states, “it’s too soon to shoot the bastards,” but somethings going to give, and when it does, well, I am afraid it’s going to messy.
Since you brought up that pathetic hippie LSD soaked dirge by Five Man Electrical Band, I made up new lyrics.
And the sign says a basket of deplorables need not apply. So I put on a dress and and a rainbow flag and I went in to ask xir why. Xe said you look like a fine woke antifa sheep, I think you’ll do. So I took off my dress and said “imagine that, huh, me workin for you?”
Mask, mask everywhere a mask. Killing the economy, busting my ass. Wear this don’t wear that, where’s your freaking mask?
And the sign said anybody caught without a mask will be shot on sight. So I jumped out of line and I yelled at the bitch, “hey what gives you the right? To put on a mask to keep Chinese virus out or to keep Chinese virus in? If God was here he’d tell you to your face, man you’re a power hungry Marxist!”
Mask, mask everywhere a mask. Killing the economy, busting my ass. Wear this don’t wear that where’s your freaking mask?
Now hey there MAGA can’t you read? You’ve got to have full PPE to get a seat. You can’t even watch no you can’t eat, you ain’t supposed to be here…
And the “science” says you got to be fully vaxxed to get inside….UH!
And the sign said Black Lives Matter, come in, take a knee today. And because I lost my job to the fascist lockdown, I didn’t have a penny to pay. So I got me a pen and paper and I made up my own little sign. It said “fu*k you Whitmer you Godless bitch, I’m alive and doing fine.”
Mask, mask everywhere a mask. Killing the economy, busting my ass. Wear this don’t wear that where’s your freaking mask? Mask, mask….[LSD induced guitar solo]
Dirk, I’m curious about the return on investment of mounting a 20 year war. What is the commodity of aFagIstan? Poppyseed? Sand? GoatGirlfriend?
“It’s all about the money”. Say that a hundred times, and select the best delivered time. After WW II, we had spent ourselves silly on war material, and then we got to: bail out Europe with the Marshall Plan. Vietnam? That was a money-maker, wudn’t it?
How much is a bag of dicks?
While I detest Dirk’s incessant use of the collective term – “WE”, he is correct about the money.
It’s all about the money. Always.
Casey, I am surprised that you don’t get that. Go back and listen to Eisenhower’s parting address
Re; Warning of the dangerous of the military-industrial complex….and you may now add the technology and “intelligence” members to that mix.
It has been so for a very long time.
These are the masters of war. They care not who wins or loses. They care nothing for nationhood and patriotism. It is Mammon they worship.
Oh, and you mentioned poppies. Have you ever noticed whenever the US Military is involved in Asia, there always happens to be an “opioid epidemic” here at home, and when the military is active in South or Central America, there is the strange coincidence of a cocaine epidemic. Can you say see-eye-aye? Sure you can.
And do tell, when was it that your beloved big green army won a f*cking war? As an American I am sick and tired of the flag waving horseshit, the trillions spent on lost blood and treasure and the non-stop lies to get the country into these messes.
HERE’S some clips that give you a run-down on the untapped riches in Afganistan.
Afghanistan’s Mineral Resources Are a Lost Opportunity and a Threat – The Diplomat
CPEC, rare earths: With US out, China set to scale up ambitions in Afghanistan – The Week
Various rare earth elements are used for making key components of phones, cameras, computer disks, TVs and other equipment. They also have applications in clean energy and defence industries.
So, who pocketed all that lucre from Afghanistan? I’ll need a paper trail on that. I can just picture roads full of semi combination rigs toting away zinc ore from remote high valleys.
The military industrial complex is indeed a thing , and I think worse now than ever before. So, your idea (Dirk, and Kevin and Gerard) is that the M-I lobby in DC did everything it could to promote the policy of war in Afghanistan? It’s a fair argument, and I agree there are lobbyists OTA and the defense contractors are happy as hell to Warbucks the cow of war. This doesn’t make the strategic national objective wrong. It doesn’t make Bush wrong for entering Afghanistan to hunt down Bin Laden or to roll up Al Qaeda or the Taliban. I agree, the objective of building a nation there was a losing hand, and why we went that way is BS and I hope that never is tried again.
Think about this. Us conservatives (I am loosely associated with conservatism) helped bring on WW II for America by a policy of isolation. That was a disaster. Now, we want our troops in the homeland. Really, Einstein? Because that’s where the war will be. Right here at home. I’m a defend forward guy.
BTW, killing Taliban is it’s own reward. Just a thought.
Why didn’t this precipitate loss occur under Trump? He brought troop levels extremely low, and owns the policy of the drawdown. But, the ice dam never broke because of the credible threat that Trump projected. Deterrence. You want it, brothers. You so want deterrence, because the alternative is war, and Daddy Warbucks is not funding the Islamist terrorists. Well, maybe Soros but he’s a fukn Bond villain character.
I wonder whomst Daddy Warbucks is supporting in Taiwan? Ukraine? Sorry, These are real world problems and we’re in for some potentially very bad days. Like I wrote before, after ’75, the Vietnamese killed their own and their own neighbors, like good Marxists. Don’t look for that outcome, exactly, now. Look for the projection of terrorism, a-la 9-11. Like Ft Hood. Like the cartoon convention. Like Manhattan.
I think that Bowden bike is actually pretty cool. Looks like something from the Jetsons cartoons. Although it looks nothing like it, it reminds me of a weird-ass vehicle I owned a gazillion years ago called a “Ner-A-Car”- a bizarre motorcycle-ish two wheeler I bought at a yard sale, only got it running one time, and sold it a few months later when I couldn’t resist the insanely high price I was offered for it from a collector. And it still had a few parts missing.
Anonymous- freakin’ HILARIOUS lyrics- it brought me almost as much laughter as the article about Obammy’s pals getting infected with Coonvid19.
John Venlet- I doubt that they’re limited to only being in rural areas like mine, so you might want to check around and see if there’s any “Sportsman’s Associations” in your area, as they’re mostly made up of gun-totin’, Conservative, fed-up, patriotic Americans bound together by a common interest in standing ground and gaining strength in numbers against the Marxist BS that’s going on around the country.
My local American Legion informed me how to find & join the one in my area. They were more than happy to accept a seasoned gunsmith and reloader as a member.
“Just ask for Millie Shaw.”
Got it, Pete. Thanks.
I am the only Conservative Prius owner I know of in the United States. I have a 2015 Prius V, no longer manufactured, and it holds a boatload of stuff and runs on a thimble full of gas a month. It was a gift, or I would likely not have chosen it. But hey, free is wonderful, and it is station wagon-y, and I like it better than the beater Subaru it replaced. On Wednesday I had a stainless steel “Cat Shield” installed. The total cost including installation was under $300. This beats the deductible for the multi thousand dollar OEM cats that insurance companies demand for Toyotas. My mechanic here in rural Chester County, PA sees at least one cat theft a week among his customers, and the really sad part is that many of these are very well kept older cars that are victimized, and then they get totaled by the insurance companies. A case in point is the 2006 Honda sitting in his parking lot. A nice local family is now going to have to buy a used car and kick in a lot of money they need for other things. Infuriating. And, yes, Toyota needs to address this problem.
Excellent share, Gerard.
And the chi-coms will rape that part of the world of every resource on the periodic table of elements! No one to stop them. They will do it in a manner lacking any regard for the environment. They will also fund terror activities throughout Asia and Africa.
Afghanistan, ruin of empires. Was that Kipling?
When I mention WE, I include myself. I think what I’m really doing is yelling at myself for being a fucking coward. . John, all of you. It’s not anger, I’m talking about, it’s disgust I’m dealing with. I don’t understand how to address/ deal with my cowardice. After the theft of the election I’m deeply disappointed in myself
DIRK, Dirk…. do not at this time indulge in self-flagellation and think you are a coward. You are not. It is simply that the exact time and place are not yet revealed to us. You have done much and will do more because that is your nature. But you are not a fool. Remember the words of Sherlock Holmes:
“Well, Watson, we can but possess our souls in patience and see what the hour may bring.”
“Well, what are we to do now?” asked MacDonald with some gruffness. “Possess our souls in patience and make as little noise as possible,” Holmes answered.”
― Arthur Conan Doyle, The Valley of Fear
Holmes loves the phrase “Possess our souls in patience” so much that he says it more than five times in the total canon.
Perhaps he thought of Luke 21:19
“19 In your patience possess ye your souls.”
Or remind you of what is said in Shakespeare’s Lear:
Edg. Away, old man! give me thy hand: away!
King Lear hath lost, he and his daughter ta’en. 10
Give me thy hand; come on.
Glo. No further, sir; a man may rot even here.
Edg. What. in ill thoughts again? Men must endure
Their going hence, even as their coming hither:
Ripeness is all. Come on….
Ripeness is all. All.
If a well known and beloved leader issued a proclamation for mass civil disobedience- to disregard all fedgov regulation and court orders; if current and reserve soldiers were simultaneously ordered to abandon their units and return home to await a new muster; if first responders were told to disregard the requests of local political leaders, would the FEDGOV be left holding their d*cks? Their power is now entirely based on divide and conquer strategy (domestic surveillance) and the fumes of the no-longer-extant old constitutional order. Can they roll us up into concentration camps with only a small minority of vocal support? They can’t if the soldiers and local police don’t comply. We are just waiting on the call.
Dirk: When I read your, “we” I first thought of the smartest guy ever, and his shtick of blaming the boomers for everything wrong since the Flood. The guy may be a jerk, but even a jerk can make a point. We all see that our world is in a bad way. Can any of us review our own lives, and pick out the decisions we made, the things we did to hasten the decline? Who can answer the question, “To what extent is this my fault?” Can anyone? We went to school, got jobs, worked, voted, and paid the bills. Some raised kids. I’m not trying to escape blame, but rather assess it. There’s a lot of finger pointing going on, but it’s easy to be a prophet about the past.
And we have to face a huge gap between what we would like to be able to do, and what we actually can do with what we have at hand.
Nothing certain, but uncertainty, right now. We do the footwork, say our prayers.
Leave results to God.
Best I can do.
How many Afghanis have to die, how many nationalist Chinese gotta die from abject incompetence. From men behind curtains ,,,cutting deals to make ungodly amounts of money in their pockets. How long are We The People going to cowardly bury our heads in the sand, while these men commit,and women commit treason.
How much longer are you going to listen to the nonsense from the other cowards who hide behind their computers and pretend like their warriors. When will their inactions their hollow words, their disinformation be recognized.
How many more weak assed Americans gotta die from fentanyl which coming across the wide open border?
Understand this. Those same men and women were plotting the next nation state plunder years ago.
Are any of you aware of what’s going on in Somalia? We’re bobbing em back into the Stone Age.which is the problem, their not much more advanced then the Stone Age. I’m guessing most know nothing of this assault. Somali? WTF.

Your government is scared to death of We the citizens. They know an ass woopings coming, and their gonna get curb stomped, like their leaders.
I WILL have my pound of flesh before I leave this place.
Dirk, I am as disgusted as you are. And I also am very disturbed, thinking about my kids, my 5 grandkids, and the one soon to join this world, who must attempt to live in the coming future, which is not looking real bright, in fact it is looking tyrannical and evil. These are not pleasant thoughts.
