@ citizenx – carry-on from yesterday
“It’s called courage, principles, discernment, and intelligence combined with basic logic and common sense…”
Nice list that has been manifested in this jab-no-jab saga, for the most part, only in the RIGHT CIRCUMSTANCES(!!!) that “heroes” for some reason do not want to disclose, while pumping their chests.
Have you watched “Died Suddenly” or any other video related to Vaxx injuries? Not a single person, especially in the latter that were more close and personal, look “dumb” or “covid-cultist” to me. How one can possibly wish to anybody else of what had happened to them??? I was talking in the name of those people who, I suspect, had to do what they had to do – to put it bluntly.
Vaxx-pushers and evil behind are in entirely different league.
Even the Naomi Wolf admitted that she may had been “much less vocal” if it wasn’t for her partner who provides sufficient financial comfort, which I think is brave thing to reveal. What ever we collectively can possibly do has to start on the footing of truth and not on useless virtual posturing and even more less on “ha-ha-stupid” finger pointing to just about ANYBODY.
Tonight is the night where we all have to grudgingly behave around the large table while turkey is carved.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Can we say that WE ALL remember how through entire 2021 advises about use of ivermectin were eagerly taken AND SHARED. Now…is it fair to say that one’s method of avoiding the jab is of even more importance to share? However there is a dead silence on that part by the posters before they spew a barrage on “dumb”. Which leads me to believe that “circumstance and the method” are far from glorious that one would like to admit. Kunstler’s blog is full of all-day-posters that caught my attention in that regard.
I like to prick some carefully inflated self serving narrative balloons, which does not win me a friends on sites like this.
You are right and thank you for additional clarification.
Being inclined to “visual” I still believe that “…so,so fucked” has no place in describing misfortune that some are about to possibly face.
“brake” = a “not fully developed brain”.
English is my 2nd. In addition, I can conduct a pretty good basic conversation in Spanish and can read Russian too.
You are grasping by the “spelling straw” to make your argument.
Now…do tell your brave story. I am all eras. Writer’s block?
I can help you and all you need is just to sign:
” I am in my forties, father of 4 and mortgage payment. Wife’s income not enough to sustain the family. My boss told me to get the jab. I told him to fuck of and walked away.”
To be clear, I applaud all that did walk away while I also acknowledge that for the most, if not all, that move did not lead to the life in the tent on the sidewalk.
Since when, “Bank requires me to have a mask to go in. Guess what? I decided to use ATM only!” deserves a standing ovation, as symbol for bravery or resistance?
Spinning people collapsing, like Icarus, on that horrific video are not some “ha-ha-dumb”. Most of them were forced as per sample that I am expecting you to sign. Even being tricked into taking the jab, they were a human beings.
“Yup – the vaxxed are fucked, and the boosted are so, so fucked!”
That’s a wording that one may hear in the school backyards during the brake. Teens before 18 yo are considered as with not fully developed brains.
Do tell us circumstances of your brave stance.
Triumphant glee watching other people suffer?
Any asshole like you, before posting, should fully disclose their circumstance that allowed them to bypass the jab, which I suspect is far less heroic than you would like to present.
Nothing is turning the way the US wanted. Impotent anger is turned on it’s own citizens.
Let the Game start.
World Cup, that is.
J Lo, an old prune in the tight green dress performing on the world stage of an opening ceremony instead in some back alley venue at home – type of an “export” that US is never tired of.
Starting with Bankman. Just wow!
Ending in what could have been: Jack Smith, Jim Trusty and Joe Sixpack walked into the bar…..
Cimabue’s painting. An excerpt from the second article link in Gardian:
“……where it might have been binned during a house clearance if an auctioneer had not spotted it.”
“Antique road show” I used to watch with sense of apprehension, anticipating how some wide eyed owner of evaluated painting is about to pledge how he/she will move it from the basement where it was covering fuse box, to the prominent place in the living room, after the $$$-# is announced. Even more annoying was blind stare into the work trying to figure as WHAT makes it so valuable.
Kinda, McIntosh apple is the only real apple.
For the n-th time: how crypto-anything is compatible with dire energy predicament that we are facing and already openly discussing about?
On the other hand: observing, in amazement, how the West “discovered” Russia for what it is, in last eight months.
Impeccable David Chappelle with his brilliant timing.
I think that reading the disclaimer at the beginning was a serious business and separate from the overall stand-up, despite the laughter in the audience. Nothing funny about that.
Non-addressing-but-addressing (kind gay) mode of communication is “interesting”, but there you have it.
“I can be moral — maybe.”
That’s a good one, given that your daily rants are nothing but a moral posturing.
Make a pick.
Make that “…in the immoral SOCIETY”.
Well, what can I say, you are well adjusted in this environment, aka functioning “Moral man in the immoral world”.
So, what is the bitching and complaining about, in your daily posts?
I thought that D’s article will confirm stupidity of any “crypto” in our energy starving world with possible power and data outages that, most likely, will become common. His conclusion, I gather, is that FTX saga is the ploy to kill any crypto-concept in our heads, which is, presumably, financial decoupling (aka rebellion) from the current banking.
Amazes me to read of “preping concepts” that levitate between or include both, wood burning stove and hi-tech block chain energy guzzling monstrosity.
Bit coin in early days was mined for a fraction of “current value”, that is (I do not bother to know exact #) in thousands of $.
Who is supposed to toil to make up for the the difference in value between purchase and sale that one can collect and walk away with victory dance?
@ John Day
It appears that you have unshakable belief that if “production” side of the system was “left alone from financial” intrusion that current state of affairs would be rosy? Marriage with finance is the result of human nature. Producing and distributing product or service is not easy, so becoming a rentier by selling the business, is preferable mode of existence for many. On the other hand, those who are still making staff, aka large Co’s, could not move fast enough almost entire US stellar production to the Third World.
As for the “Atlas shrugged”, you did not miss much. I remember in the 70’s, seeing the guy “as if floating two feet above the ground”, I would had said: Yep, he just finished reading “Siddhartha”. Now days I am observing folks in here, with no pot to piss in, thinking of themselves as being Hank Readen moment they close that cartoon of the book.
I will check the link that you’ve posted later on today.
@ John Day.
Assume that in part of your post above is a covert reply to me?
Quote from it: “It’s the same exponential-growth eating a finite-pie.”
For Production and Finance pretzel it takes two (to tango). Every owner of enterprise that was taken over by the “financial sharks” left the field hardly destitute unlike the people who contributed in making the place worth consideration even by the before-mentioned. Nudged by the finance or not, almost every hi-player business, by it’s nature, wants to grow, destroy competition – all with the minimal cost across the board and by ALL means if necessary.
Could have sworn that Hank Rearden from “Atlas” had , as his goal, to be one and only producer of all the material supply for the rails on the planet to start with, than branch into any conceivable use for his “alloy”, then charge the clients to to the point of pain. To which, Dagney’s eyes lit up in anticipation. Bear in mind that he’s portrayed in the book as “ethical”
and fair player.
Businesses would usually start nice and docile, akin to talent contestant before Simon. With the first noticeable traction that coincides with unnoticed dependency on the product by the client/customer base, they turn tables on them. If successful with further growth next big stop is DC, since they already dipped their toes into local politics.
Once they reach that level owners are declared “communists” and destroyers of the country. Shhhweeet!
Europe refugee crisis.
Part of me believes that people in war torn Ukraine (or any other E-country for that matter) will be hesitant to move to, say, Saudi Arabia even if promised safe and good life. Instinctively, they know it is not their world.
Kalakusic on Twitter sneak-link did not escape me.
What he has said is, technically, explained by one of daily posts above with:
“The natural progression of every form of Marxism, communism, socialism, fascism etc. all ultimately lead to a kind of globalist ideology….”
Which is to say, that multinational Corporations are NOT created by the most capable capitalists. “Somebody else” infiltrated the system and outsmarted all the players in the “true free market”.
Tulsi, God bless her hart.
I do not question or judge her choice to be in the army.
Lieutenant Colonel is relatively high-ranking position to be just retired at her age, so I assume that she is still under the Army reserve umbrella? Unless, US army officers coming of the conveyor belt are disposable at any age?
Isn’t she required to “cut the crap” and answer the call, unconditionally, to the “sound of trumpets”?
Mundane sign of wheels coming off:
Huge delay in announcing the winning numbers of the 1.9 bil POWERball last night, while “the results” are still on hold.
“The LEFT got their Biden. And yes, he turned over the reins of government to them. And yes, they got their NEO-SOCIALISM for two years. And yes, THEY are destroying America as we knew it.”
Where are the multinational Corps, who had the rains in their hands all along BTW, in this construct? Are they, God forbid, “The Left”?
By now I learned, at least, not to spill my morning coffee through the nose.
@ John Day
More power to her. My problem is that I have a different (gut) reaction to the two videos that I’ve posted. We are watching both talking about identical thing! That’s all. My European sensitivity and tradition prevents me to see what I am apparently “supposed to see” in her.
Boy aren’t we different?!?!
Few days ago in Shishkin’s painting Dr D had seen bushels of wheat, combines, harvesting logistics of what I have seen was a connection to an artist’s work century later.
Dora and Arnold see annoyed Rembrandt and I see the artist concentrated to make sure that work will turn right.
No wonder that we “easily ruled” by the current cohort.
Re: Rembrandt’s drawing. What cat? It’s a garment fold.
He’s not annoyed, he’s attentive. Drawing with pen and ink with no chance for correction. Poetry of pen marks!
Creating Art is not easy, unless one is Bob Ross.
Tulsi had found “her niche”, All the right words and, yet, I have alarm bells going wild in my gut:
My type of hero:
Amnesty-themed comics at the top of Dr D’s post.
Can we say that in the “We-Are-All-Disillusioned” Mass Formation Theory there is a seed to call for Amnesty that created the media hoopla last week?
On the other hand, did some of you ever thought, with the cup of coffee by the open fire, WHAT is it that makes Soros, Clinton & Co……. “Left”?
First: the painting
First issue of National Geographic was in 1888, seven years after the painting has bee created. I can imagine a situation where photographer of the mag was sending a telegram from the job assignment to the main HG with the message: Run out of film. There is this local guy, Ivan Shishkin that you may want to contact. Stop.
Last: Turkish borders
In Sarajevo there is the street that literally divides “East” and “West” part of the city. Former built by the it’s founders the Ottomans in 1500’s and latter by Austro-Hungarian empire. It may become of interest to Erdogan too. It is only a few small countries away.
For those who care to click on link images will, also, present Austro-Hungarian idea of occupation. Compared to US “shock and wave” where unfortunate country is leveled, occupiers of the Bosnia and Herzegovina decided to build..and build… and build as if Sarajevo and many other larger cities are suburbs of Vienna. Post Ottoman historical core of the city was built in short 36 years of occupation (1878-1914). Brick-by-brick method of building, decorated, and designed by the prominent architects of the Empire in that time. Original blueprints stored in archives in Vienna helped in restoration of damaged buildings during the war and siege that city endured in 1992-95.
Jimi Dore and some of his guests like Blumenthal, Matte, are MY idea what the Left is in the US, albeit the former is bit
to much in my opinion given his softness toward illegal immigration, the 2nd …etc.
Now, majority of what they had to say is nothing but the common sense and yet, their “ideological position” is magically brushed away since it is not congruent with the meme of “evil Left”.
Vastness of sky and land features compressed against lower edge, composition of painting has that “Diebenkorn quality” to it. Especially when one looks with the squinted eyes into the thumb-sized image before clicking.
I admit, I missed that WEF experience was not Tulsi’s but of MP Michelle Rempel Garner.
Yet, I had combined thought, immediately, of Tulsi and “Head Girl” before the comment by “my parents…”
Can’t explain it but I just follow my gut. I like my “revolutionaries” to be more real deal like that Irish couple, lady and gray haired bearded guy recently featured at TAE (shame that I can’t recall the names at the moment) that are shaking parliamentary walls with the truth. Both down to Earth but show of real force and passion, Tulsi’s videos with the sound off, while she’s talking about grave issues facing the nation and the world, appears as if she’s talking about a beautiful trip with the family, their dog Fido pleasantly misbehaving making everybody laugh ,,,,I know, it’s just me.
“Tulsi and WEF”
No wonder that she came to my mind the moment story/discussion about “Head Girl” surfaced today on the site.
Since Covid-protocols are still being pushed (albeit in more subdued form) and far from being cancelled it would be interesting to know WHAT triggered the sudden change in Emily Oster’s head and compel her to publicly “excuse herself”, which I think is her primary motive.
Waiting for the replies from other visitors of the site that would prove your recent assertion how the site “welcomes different ideas” or something to that tone.
I had never had a confusion as what the Left is – the one you described in addition to folks manning barricades during the Spanish civil war, WWII resistance fighters and heroes in Europe or organizers of the resistance to Anglo-looters in South America. Latter being especially scolded for preventing us to have “our oil and minerals”.
New “Left” is considered and accepted by the indoctrinated schmucks, as Antifa, BLM or ladies wearing pink vagina-like hats. Accepting that is the same as accepting that Lea Thomas is the young woman and why not in the upside-down world.
Whether there is a man-induced climate change or not – folks from the North claim that winters are cold, if not colder, as ever, while folks from temperate regions claim, justifiably, that winters are exceptionally mild in past few decades. That is beside the point. Behind the “anger” on climate-change activism – which is equally annoying for just being represented by the brat Greta, there is really, the baby cry for energy intensive life to continue unabated.
Kunstler, an author of “Long emergency” no less, has on his site regulars who sequel like teenage girls attending teen-idol concert on any mention of V-8 engine and the “wroooom sound”. String of comments about cars, lawn movers, chain saws are aplenty and easy to start. Comment with some mundane story of your car at the mechanic and watch the replies.
While everything else is photo-like?
Pfizer and other Corporate crimes presented daily.
Americans: Commies and Marxists destroying our country.
…when party needED him the most…
Just want to pOint…
In twitter above, post-Pfizer revelation conference there is that long haired guy. He is a Croat who was brought to political spotlight as a member of one progressive party by work of thousands of hopefuls and volunteers. Party, mostly youngsters, were thorn in the side for extremely corrupt Croatian top government, by being extremely vocal and more an more visible at the Croatian Parliament. At one critical moment a few years back, when party need him the most he, under the command of his wife left for the lucrative, 6,000 Euros/mo, position in Brussels where, as I can see is he still in. Party after that dissolved into a shadow of itself, or I am not sure if still exist.
Now, I am not criticizing or blaming him. Just want to pint that any hope placed into career politicians is futile waste of time.
Birth certificate story is almost decade old. Sheriff Joe Arpaio was leading investigator and tough press conference presenter.
Nothing came of it.
