Good Morning!

Medical fascism is no way to live either.

I wish there was a data source that was believable. All we have are narratives. Happy dystopia.

Now to the trains. :)

Please, henry, I want some more trains.

Narciso

it really is striking how the courts issue edicts without data, the 6th circuit is the most agregious

Narciso


they have proven most inadequate

yes the mask mandates are attriting hospital personnel, exactly when we will be needng them the most,

henry

Hoyden, gotta make a beer run. Then vacuum. Emergency train vid follows!

Then I’ll dig out the Trump trains.

Broad sweeping statements that simply say “get vaccinated” are just fucking stupid.

Narciso

if they pitched it, at the it will reduce symptoms, but it has a narrow effectiveness, well maybe, but this ministry of magic potion it is not,

Thank you, TM. Just in the nick of time.

jimmyk

It doesn't bother me so much if public health officials *advise* people to get vaccinated. But coercing us to do so, and lying about the risks on both sides, is a bridge too far. I still think within a few weeks, in NY at least, I'll pretty much be forced to if I want to work, go to bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, etc.

Week in review: My sr senator called a man who created 100k jobs, changed auto industry, went to space & soon will pay more taxes than anyone in US history ... a freeloader.
And my congressperson said expecting college grads to pay their bills is ... violence.
So sorry, America

Kids are out running errands. I am locked in the house with the alarm on, since there is a BLM demonstration at the high school a couple miles from here. Seems like a kid got killed by a cop in Indianapolis while shooting someone else. Instead of demonstrating in democrat Indy, they came out here where his parents had moved (and which is mostly GOP) and are demonstrating out here.

Meanwhile, I am watching “Die Hard”.

Kamala staffer tries to shut down interview when Harris is asked if Biden/Manchin is in charge.

Then she gets shouty and belligerent and accuses the interviewer of sounding like a Republican (revealing she only expects interviewers to be leftists)

matt - deplore me if you must

Buford, people leave. They return sometimes. Several have passed away. The quality of the commentary is still excellent.

TM simply provides a platform with some of his thoughts and leaves us to do our thing.

Joe is hiding in the fuehrerbunker while Kamala endears herself even further to the citizenry. Warren gets owned by Musk. The Nov 6'ers in the House have bupkis, but boy do they want to keep the facade alive until the elections because they literally have nothing else. Nothing like a Soviet style investigation to reinforce the growing opinion that the Left want to have a STASI state.

The race begins in 2 weeks. Start limbering up for November.

Good afternoon! So, Biden is giving a speech about Omicron on Tuesday?! Good Lord, who is managing the optics in his administration?
A few days before Christmas, when people are traveling and not paying attention. Really?

Meet Ray Epps, Part 2: Damning New Details Emerge Exposing Massive Web Of Unindicted Operators At The Heart Of January 6

Six weeks ago, Revolver News published a blockbuster investigative report on Ray Epps — a man who, more than any other individual, appears to be the key unlocking the question of active federal involvement in the so-called “Capitol Siege” of January 6th.

https://www.revolver.news/2021/12/damning-new-details-massive-web-unindicted-operators-january-6/

Very interesting

Rick Ballard

"DO get vaccinated or boosted."

Is Alpha returning? Cuz Delta just sort of giggles at Almostavax and Omicon doesn't seem to recognize it's existence.

If you fear Omicron, which appears to be as troublesome as a bad cold, then I would suggest triple masking after raising your bed high enough to be comfortable under it.

Narciso

personally the fact we've lost quite a few people that made this place, more lively, dr j being the last ann daddy, pagar, frau, and we've lost some hope that things will be better, or at least not get worse,

Here's some some REAL medical advice:

Get your serum vit D level above 50--nobody with one that high goes to the hospital if they get Covid.
Multiple good studies out that show that.

Do the prophylactic stuff from here too:

https://covid19criticalcare.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/FLCCC-Alliance-I-MASKplus-Protocol-ENGLISH.pdf

Don't fall for the fear porn bullshit they keep slinging.

Daughter called. Gas leak with our stove, and another leak under the house! Gas company came out and shut off the gas in the whole house! She has no heat or hot water. We will have to see what can be done on Monday.

I wonder if that contributed to me passing out.

Narciso

yikes, that's very dangerous,

MissMarple2

Narciso,

Yea, it is! Anyone know benefits of electric vs gas in furnace and hot water heater? The stove is already getting replaced with an electric one.

Davod

MM2. I have gas for the furnace and hot water. I think gas is cheaper. Additionally, when the power goes down, at least you can have a hot shower.

Davod

MM2. Isn't there a something similar to a carbon monoxide detector that detects gas?

Ace's The Saturday Night Joke

A teacher asks the kids in her 3rd grade class, "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

Little Aaron says, "I wanna start out as a Fighter Pilot, then be a billionaire, go to the most expensive clubs, find me the finest whore, give her a Ferrari worth over a million bucks, an apartment in Copacabana, a mansion in Paris, a jet to travel throughout Europe, an infinite Visa Card and all the while banging her like a loose screen door in a hurricane."

The teacher, shocked and not knowing what to do with this horrible response from little Aaron decides not to acknowledge what he said. And she simply tries to continue with the lesson.

"And how about you, Sarah?" The teacher asks.

"I wanna be Aaron's whore." (H/T CBD)

Para sailing the Red Green way (2:51) Keystone cops couldn't have done it better. There were tears running down my face.

Reminds me (only slightly) of the time some of us in the Katherine Skydiving Club didn't appreciate that bad weather stopped us from parachuting, so we drove to an old emergency strip along the highway, and tried parasailing with normal parachutes.

Did I mention that in those days parasailing operated in what was considered the most dangerous window for skydivers, very close to the ground. And the airstrip blacktop was very hard. The worst gravel rash I have ever received.

MissMarple2

Davod,

You are probably right that there is a gas detector. I will look tomorrow.

As far as the furnace and water heater, she will have to decide.

BAIER: You're done? This is a no?

MANCHIN: "This is a no on this legislation"


Manchin calls BBB "a mammoth piece of legislation" and "I've had my reservations from the beginning." His concerns? Inflation, rising costs, national debt, "geopolitical unrest," Covid, new variant. He says he has been "very concerned about this" bill and Dem senators know it.

“Brave Russian civilians film massive movements of Russian troops towards Ukraine, not dozens of German and hundreds of Western journos based in RUS”. So true! The last report with words “troops” and “Russia” by GER @ARDMoskau (dozens of personnel) is from April’21 A collusion? twitter.com/julianroepcke/…


One needs to add: a civilian can be jailed in Russia for such filming (were cases in 2008 amid Russian invasion in Georgia), but Western journos face only extradition. Obviously, Moscow salaries are too good to risk extradition, and they choose not to provoke Kremlin with reports


A general rule should be applied: if a Western journalist works in Russia today, he/she is deliberately tolerated by Kremlin, therefore he/she practices self-censorship and does not report (all) the truth.

Funny how we aren't hearing a word from Poland, The Czechs, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia etc after Putin's throw down. The Poles, Lithuanians and Estonians punch way above their weight, as Obama might have said. And they all know they are next on Vlad's list.

I wonder how strong the Russian military actually is. It would be interesting to say the least if Poland and the others came to the aid of Ukraine.

Every one of them has a score to settle with the Rus going back centuries and even millennia.
