    ““All you ever need is the Truth and the Truth will set you free!””

    Isn’t that written over the gates of one of the Covid Camps in Northern Australia?

    About 15 years ago, while visiting an old friend on the Island of Mindanao, Philippines, I went for a Sunday morning walk through the neighborhood in the smallish city of Taguum. Dirt roads meandering through residential homes with thatch roofs and dirt floors. Some may have a refrigerator, no water heater, but definitely air conditioning….this is like middle class in the Philippines.

    So, here I am doing this Sunday walk, and I hear Tom Jones coming across the airwave from a small house with windows open. Unmistakable. I thought, well, yeah Tom Jones has some love crush fans all over the world.
    Walking a little further….and receive a friendly wave and Mabuhay from the lovely Filipina out on her porch sweeping and doing chores, with Tom Jones in the background.
    Tom is popular here, says I to self.
    I continue walking. It was about a 5 mile walk around that morning……and, I kid you not, another little house, with a hot Filipina sweeping the front porch to the songs of Tom Jones!

    I got back to the house and mentioned this phenomenon to my ex-pat friend and he says, “oh, yeah, T. J. is big her with the girls…Emy ( friend’s hot GF – thirty years his junior) listens to him all the time.”

    Funny. Huh.

    I haven’t been feeling any unity in this country for a while. The progressives/socialists/democrats have undertaken a decades-long, hammer and tongs approach to undermining us. In 2008 a majority of the electorate signed on to the “fundamental transformation” of a country that was clearly superior to anywhere else in the world. There was nothing worth saving, was the zeitgeist of the mob, and they cleaved to their “savior”. And here we are – Balkanized. If there’s a way back, that does not involve considerable bloodshed; I can’t imagine what it would be. Still, hope dies last, I suppose.

    I don’t think I have ever seen Van the Man laugh or even smile during a performance before. It appeared he really was into TJ singing his lyrics. This one’s for AlexG. You know he banged Janis after this one…. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZmiefQ5y4U

    Thanks, Klaus, for that link. True living among the few. They might flame out early, but they don’t plod along, talking nonsense. There’s so much to applaud among the creators.
