BLACK O-LIVES MATTER

October 11th, 2017

They do, black o-lives really do matter, I mean, every time an o-live ventures out on the road it gets pitted, you know? Someone is always shaking their trees, picking them over and discriminating against them. The worst looking ones get shoved aside and the best end up sentenced to life in the can. It’s just so unfair. Freedom for black o-lives is nearly impossible, yet they enrich our lives so much, in our salads, on our pizzas, at the end of toothpicks…

THE SHOPKEEPER

September 30th, 2017

It was a dark and stormy night. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.

Okay, so I’m not writing a famous novel. This is a true story, anyway.

I’m opening a hobby and crafts store in our little town and I went to the bank to start a business account in the new shop’s name. There I was told that I needed to first get a business license and publish a DBA, a Doing Business As notice in the paper, which is required for businesses with a fictitious name, such as Acme Glass Company or such like.

So I asked, “which do I do first, the publishing or the license?” and they didn’t know. I called the newspaper and they didn’t know, so I called the county office that deals with such things and they said to call the clerk who only deals with licenses, and gave me her number. So I did. And here’s what happened.

She asked me if I was selling anything that had a serial number on it, things that you register the number of in case it gets stolen, and I’m not so I said No. Then she asked me if I was selling anything outside of my store, in the parking lot or wherever, and again I said No.

So she then told me I was not required to get a business license.

I never heard of such a thing, but when I went back to the bank to try again for a business account, I got it, because I also added my name ahead of the fictitious name, as the legal name of the business, making it a NON-fictitious name. So no need to publish in the paper, AND, run back and forth to the County Seat TWICE, a 50 mile excursion down a fast moving, narrow and winding mountain road, to deal with lots of bureaucracy and pay big fees for the privilege.

Freedom from government, you just don’t know how great it is until you suddenly have it.

THE QUESTION NO ONE ASKS

September 23rd, 2017

No one except me, apparently.
North Korea is China’s vassal. China owns and directs Kim Jong Un, aids and abets their outrageous behavior and provides the physical means in the form of food and oil and other materials for that little puppet regime to continue antagonizing the United States.

That they’ve been shooting their rockets right over Japan is no mistake, the Chinese hate the Japanese. Nothing will ever make them forgive what the Japs did to China in World War 2. If this were just Kim acting alone, his provocative missile shots would be over South Korea. But the Chinese tell him where to aim them and that’s what he obediently does. China owns North Korea, North Korea for all practical purposes IS China.

So now the question. Why is China deliberately pushing us to attack North Korea? If they didn’t want us to, they wouldn’t be threatening us with nuclear war. What’s in it for them? How do the Chinese benefit if we attack North Korea?

I don’t know what the Chinese leaders have in mind but there are a few obvious things. One is that the Chinese don’t want the North Koreans sneaking into China. They’re equivalent to illegal aliens Mexicans, they cause problems. An attack on N. Korea would kill off a lot of them. But, they can do that themselves, they don’t need us to control the population.

North Korea is the result of Communist China’s attempt in the 1950’s to take over the entire Korean peninsula, but we fought them to a standstill and both sides agreed to split the country in half. China got the North half. Maybe they just are still mad at us 60 years later??? If we attacked N.K., I bet the Chinese army would swarm in and do their damndest to bog us down in another endless war. That may be the real purpose of this, simply to weaken us, to drain us of resources.

The White House knows the truth, whatever it is, and Pres. Trump knows that the only real way to deal with N. Korea is to go after China, and that’s both what he’s going to do and has been doing.

I can’t help wondering what the real reason is that China’s pulling this crap. Maybe I got it right here but it doesn’t feel to me that I did. I bet there’s more, a lot more.

SELF-ABUSE

September 16th, 2017

I’m finally pretty much past the heebie jeebies and general trauma of deciding to open a retail shop in town, from scratch. At 78 it does seem rather stupid of me, and even after a year of cogitating on the idea, I’m still not real sure about it.

BUT, full speed ahead, Captain, the building is rented, the showcases are inside waiting to be unpacked as soon as I finish painting and repairing — or is that the other way around? The boxes of inventory goods are arriving daily and being daily carted over to the store-to-be and packed in the back room.

So what kind of shop is it, you ask? I know you asked, I heard you ask. I hear lots of things now, it must be the stress of starting a new business in a poor community in CALIFORNIA, of all places, Land Of Incessant And Ever More Burdensome Taxation. Which fact has definitely been part of my stress load.

Hobbies and Crafts with the emphasis on Crafts. Crafting craftily I crept quietly closer. Say that 10 times really fast. Polymer clay crafting, macrame (yes, it’s coming back) model boat and airplane building, beading, leather working, painting, with lots of different kinds and colors of paint that cost a bloody fortune, canvases, easels, drawing stuff, soap making, basket making, candle making… all sorts of crafts, lots of different crafting kits…

Anyway, I’ve gotten most of the ordering done and haven’t really spent as much as I thought I’d have to, but there’s always tomorrow and …. the unknown… but no stress, no, I’m fine, no really…

Anyway, today is COFFEE DAY. Today is the day I knew was coming when I’d run out of coffee and have to roast more. I buy it in bulk, green, and roast the beans in my oven about every 6 months. A lot of beans. They crackle and snap and pour out clouds of smoke, because they have to be roasted at 500 degrees F. and that’s pretty damned hot. Gotta watch em like a hawk because they can go from a nice brown to that foul tasting French Roast condition pretty quickly. But all was good and 3 more fat bags of roasted beans now reside in my freezer. You have to freeze them once they’re roasted or the oils in them go rancid. But frozen, they keep fine and taste fresh for a very long time.

So there you have it. Well, almost. The reason I’m opening a store, and a craft store specifically, is because I still plan on living forever and my income will all run out in less than 4 years now, and it seems like a good idea to have something to make a living with that’s easy. Crafts and hobbies, because there isn’t one in our entire, spread out area of about 10,000 – 12,000 people.

So burn a candle, spin a prayer wheel, set little pieces of paper on fire or whatever silly superstitious thing you do, dear Reader, on my behalf. What the hell, I’ll take anything. Send me money, tho, really, that would be good.

SANCTIONS

September 6th, 2017

Pres. Trump is using sanctions as a very effective tool in bringing other nations we’re involved with into line and getting a lot of complaints from them in the process. The latest griper is Vlad Putin, who said that it’s ridiculous for us to be asking for their help with North Korea when we put them on the same sanctions list as North Korea.

That’s actually pretty inaccurate and he knows it, our sanctions against N. Korea are for a totally different reason than our sanctions against some specific Russian businesses and banks. But that’s beside the point, as the real story here is that we have something that Russia and China don’t have in our sanction power.

Russia has nothing that we have to have. But if we cut off all trade with Russia, that would do a lot of harm to their economy. We’re already doing them harm as it is with the sanctions that exist now.

Sanctions threats against China are scaring the Chinese as well. We can target many specific entities, primarily banks and oil companies, and really clobber the Chinese economy. Of course they can and will retaliate against us by turning back a lot of our exports, but we can absorb that. The Chinese can probably absorb our sanctions too, but at the cost of stopping their outward expansionism, which is actually our primary goal. They’re using N. Korea the same way they’re using those artificial island they’ve militarized, for the same purpose.

Any nation that the United States stops trading with, is going to suffer very badly for it, far more so than we will, and it makes much more sense to conduct an Economic World War than a military one. With a savvy business leader like President Trump conducting it, we stand an excellent chance of winning.

CATASTROPHES-R-US

September 5th, 2017

“Oh, the ice caps are melting, the tide is rushing in,
All the world is drowning, to wash away our sins.”
A cute little song sung by Tiny Tim.

The story is that the South Pole ice cap is melting, actually. I’m don’t know if that’s true and really don’t care either way, but the story is also that the North Pole ice cap is growing thicker and larger, too.
So ON AVERAGE, the temperature of Earth is probably staying pretty constant.
HOWEVER, it’s not staying constant everywhere. It’s very possible that some areas are getting warmer and maybe a lot warmer. The hotter it gets out on the ocean, the bigger the storms get because more heat generates more wind, and we now have Hurricane Irma being called the most massive and deadly hurricane ever recorded. Ever. Right behind a hurricane that brought record flooding to Texas.

Hurricane Irma is expected to pretty much wipe out the state of Florida, which actually might not be a bad deal if it gets rid of all the fire ants and alligators. But it won’t. What it will do is remove a few hundred thousand boats that will end up littering the ocean bottom, uproot tens of thousands of trees and give roofers and carpenters all the work they can handle for the next 3 years. Oh, and kill at least 500 people, most of them black, because the blacks won’t want to leave for fear their homes will be looted. The reality is that a lot of them will be trying to do the looting and getting killed by the storm instead. Or should I say, the hope is that they will.

But anyway…. This storm is just a symptom of change. Yes, climates do change. Sometimes the changes are cyclical and sometimes they’re permanent. Not all deserts were always deserts, a lot of them used to be swamps, and the only time dramatic changes in climate are disasters is when humans are the critters getting disastered. Otherwise, Mother Nature takes it all in stride.

“Disasters” are part of living on a planet, just par for the course.

There’s over 7 billion of us now, so if some weather event were to kill off a couple billion, I wouldn’t personally consider that to be a disaster. If it killed off all but a few thousand, now THAT would be a human disaster. It’s all relative. Like if it killed me, for instance. That would be a truly epic disaster.

DANCING AT THE DEVIL’S WEDDING

September 4th, 2017

Today I started making arrangements to rent a store front, for a crafts shop. The idea is to both have a business that will carry me through when my income gives out, in a little less than four years now, as well as have something more entertaining to do than sit around the house. Also, it will tie in with the rock hound club and help promote it as well as be a source of income from it. That’s the optimistic thinking behind this, anyway.

The fly in the ointment, and “fly” may be an appropriate pun, actually, is that the world is coming to an end. So if the world is ending, why bother doing this? Because, I suppose, it’s better to carry on as if it wasn’t ending, and then just meet the end when it happens.

Anyone who can’t see that the world is ending, isn’t paying attention. China very obviously wants war with us or they’d put an immediate stop to the antics of their slave state North Korea. The N.K. has just announced that an underground atomic bomb test they just conducted was a Hydrogen bomb. Hydrogen bombs are the most powerful type ever developed, and N.K. now has ICBMs that can carry such bombs to the United States, and they say they’re going to do exactly that.

OF COURSE if they did, we would obliterate N.K. with nukes of our own, but what damage would we suffer first? Would it be enough that the Chinese would feel confident to continue the attack on us? Or could we stave off enough of the attack that the Chinese would hold off and maintain their false claim that N.K. acted alone?

This question is exactly why they’re so angry that we’ve been installing anti-missile systems in S. Korea because successfully stopping the N.K. missile attack would ruin their decades of planning.

President Trump has thrown down the gauntlet at the Chinese, by threatening to cut off all trade with them if they don’t stop feeding their rabid attack dog, but I don’t think that’s going to stop them. I think they’re going to do it.

Nuclear war may not end the world for someone living on some remote island somewhere, but it pretty much will for all the rest of us and we are now teetering on the very thin edge. Most people have no awareness at all of the point of extreme crisis we’ve reached, but I do because the signs are much too obvious to overlook.

We and Russia are rapidly downsizing our embassies in each other’s countries, supposedly because we’ve become more hostile with each other. I highly doubt that. I’m not convinced, I think it’s all posturing. We are rapidly withdrawing from trade with China and we’ve left or are leaving all the other unfavorable trade pacts. Our military is undergoing a very rapid buildup, our anti-missile development is on the top burner. We’re getting prepared and in a hurry. China is seeing their chance to conquer us starting to slip away.

What will they do?

BITCOINS AND TULIPS

September 1st, 2017

I’ve been debating with myself over whether or not I should invest in Bitcoins. The problem I have is that they remind me too much of tulip bulbs.

Bitcoins don’t exist, they’re entirely virtual. There’s a cap on how many there can be, which is 21 million, and people buy them for investment as well as to actually used them online, to purchase goods online. Because of their relative rarity, by that I mean the cap on them, a lot of people have decided to invest in them. The result is that the current value of a Bitcoin has gone from an original $100 to over $4000. In Feb. 2017 the price crashed to less than $1000, and the average price can easily fluctuate over $200 a day. If you look at the Bitcoin exchanges, prices range from $4500 to over $10,000, so YES, Bitcoins are very volatile.
When I see volatility like this, I see people in a greedy panic trying to get a ride on the cash cow while it lasts, and I can’t blame them considering the great increase in Bitcoin value. The fact that there’s thousands of merchants who now accept Bitcoins as payment only adds to the interest in them as an investment.

Back in the 16th Century, tulip bulbs were introduced to the Dutch from Turkey and became very popular. They were also very scarce, and to add interest to them was a plant disease that caused them to develop into a wide variety of colors and shapes, most of which were attractive.
A Tulip Bulb Stock Market arose, and investors, in their eagerness to get in on big profits, began paying huge prices for new, colorful flower bulbs, until it finally dawned on them that they were paying far more for the bulbs than the bulbs were actually worth, the entire market collapsed and many in Europe lost their fortunes.

Since Bitcoins are only virtual, an Internet collapse could wipe them out. Or a hacker could create millions more out of thin air or steal a massive number of them, or a sales scam could frighten investors away and crash the value to nearly nothing, or…. Plus the fact that because Bitcoin sales are anonymous, terrorists are using them, which may soon push governments to either regulate or outlaw them.

Yeah, I think the debate with myself is concluded. If I were rich and had lots of money to play with, I’d take a chance on it, but I’m not. The time to have invested in this was when they were $100 each.

BLACK LIVES SPLATTER

September 1st, 2017

One of the biggest problems we face in the USA today is Gangs. Black gangs and Brown – Hispanic – gangs. We do have Chinese and Vietnamese gangs as well but at least they stay small and confine their Mafia-style tactics pretty much to their own people, and do it fairly quietly.

The black and the Hispanic, primarily Mexican, gangs aren’t so quiet. They leave dead bodies all over the place and attack anyone and anything. The blatant activities of these gangs is what gives black teenager groups the temerity to go around attacking vulnerable white people and flash-mob rob businesses. Without the sense that black people have more power, these cowardly acts would cease.

Now we have the Black Lives Matter (BLM) thugs creating more violence. The BLM started off just wanting to create social awareness of what they consider to be unfair treatment of black people, but it quickly turned into demands for special treatment and attacks on anything white. They started as a racist organization and have remained so.

These gangs and their attacks on white people and white institutions have been allowed to flourish by the Obama administration, which was out to tear America apart. While a lot of Obama appointees remain in place, they’re being pushed out one by one, and increasing pressure is being brought to bear on the gangs as a result. The arrest and prosecution of members of the large and very violent Mexican drug gang MS-13, is an example.

A lot’s been written about the psychology of, and attraction to gangs by teenagers, but that’s all wasted breath when it comes to reality, which is that gangs ruin lives. They ruin all the lives connected to them and most of the lives anywhere near them, they make everything worse for everyone and they have to be stomped out. Gangs are a civil liability of huge and worsening proportions. America has had gangs almost as long as we’ve had cities, and we probably always will, but that’s not the problem. The problem is their behavior. The time for gangs to rule cities and neighborhoods has to end and it will end.

VOICES

August 31st, 2017

My neighbor just down the hill from me, right next door actually but from my deck I look down on the top of his head when he’s out and about, is psychotic.

This is the same person who was drunk and screaming death threats at me a few years back, shortly after he’d moved in there, because he was going to sell me an old beat up car that was left behind in the garage, then reneged on the deal because he decided it was worth more than the agreed on price. It wasn’t, and in fact he eventually just gave it away to get rid of it. But he lost all his self-control when I told him that he was welching on the deal, which he was. It took 3 visits from the police and being taken away in handcuffs to finally get him to calm down. That’s pretty crazy.

He’s gotten worse, however. Under California law you can get a permit to grow 12 marijuana plants, which he did, and grew them in his back yard each year. Many times over the past couple of years I’ve seen him apparently drunk and dancing and singing to his plants, talking to them, howling, yelling at people who don’t actually seem to be there, and so forth.

Ah, but now… Today for the first time, while I was out having coffee on my back deck, I heard him carrying on a calm conversation with someone and I took a peek at him because it sounded odd, and there was no one there. At first I thought he was on his cell phone, but he wasn’t. Yet he was saying something about finances, waiting for an answer and then responding to the answer, from a voice in his head.

That’s schizophrenia. I studied clinical psychology for awhile in college and while I didn’t pursue it as a vocation, I learned the basic forms of mental illness and their symptoms, and talking out loud to voices you hear in your head is advanced schizophrenia. He’s been in legal trouble in the past for drunken behavior coupled with episodes of physical assaults, and then there’s his behavior toward me.

He’s exceeded the legal limit for pot plants this year, with 32 large plants in his fenced yard now instead of the allowed 12, plus an unknown number inside his house under lights, where he starts all of them out. He’s plainly paranoid about being caught and I think this is augmenting his schizophrenia and probably is why he’s now conversing with imaginary people.

My concern is that he might go berserk on me like he did before, because of something he imagines. The pot growing season won’t end for a few more months yet and hopefully things will stay calm until then. Meanwhile our county supervisors are debating whether to either outlaw pot growing in the county entirely or hire a bunch of extra police to supervise it and ensure it stays within limits, regulate it and make tax profits off it. Personally I hope they decide to outlaw it and put an end to my neighbor’s little pot farm efforts. If he can’t grow it any longer there’s a good chance he’ll move on.

TOO MANY PEOPLE

August 29th, 2017

I know I keep harping on this, I do because no one else seems to be, and they should. There’s too many people. While all the news in the USA is about the devastation caused by a major storm dumping rain on a known flood plain that people have built on by the millions regardless of the fact that it IS a flood plain, and subject to FLOODING, small notice is given to India and Bangladesh, which used to be part of India the same as Pakistan was before the Muslimes ripped them off.

The monsoon season is in full swing there and flooding is everywhere. Much of Bangladesh is a flood plain and unsuited for anything to live on it except tigers and snakes, but poor people who’s only affordable entertainment is having sex and making more poor people, swarm all over it because no one else wants it, and are now being rained out and drowned out.

This happens every year, but some years are a lot worse than others. Wikipedia gives varying counts of the yearly monsoon deaths, all of which are suspect. The claim of flood deaths for 1988 vary from 1500 to 2600, but at the time, it was reported that tens of thousands had died.

Then we have New Orleans, which is all below sea level and a flood plain and where people have been living for about 300 years now, and we know what happens in New Orleans. In fact they’re worried that the Houston storm may do it to them again as it moves their way.

The REASON that people rebuild on flood plains after suffering catastrophic floods that result in huge losses and many deaths, is because someone else has already taken over the best and safest places to live that are nearby. We would all live near sources of fresh water, abundant food and good climate if we could, which is why all those places are packed with people now and why the growing majority of us end up living in all the marginal and dangerous places.

So personally, I have no sympathy for myself or any other human when it comes to being a victim of a natural disaster. I did my part, I fathered three children, one son and one daughter by my first marriage and one daughter by my second. Three parents, three children, and that was on purpose. No more after that because I saw 50 years ago that we were overpopulating. Statistically, if everyone did that, the human population would decline because of the death rate.

The more of us there are, the less we get along with each other, and a continuing increase in our population isn’t sustainable. Eventually, if our numbers aren’t reduced through war, famine and disease, we will outstrip the ability of the planet to feed us and by then there will be no other animals except humans. It would be interesting to live long enough to see what happens, but that’s not likely to be very much fun.

RUPERT MURDOCH SUCKS

August 27th, 2017

Rupert Murdoch sucks George Soros’ cock and swallows his semen. Rupert Murdoch fucks both his sons in their asses and makes them lick the shit off his penis after he’s done.

Rupert Murdoch’s mother was an Aboriginal that his father kept as a sex slave, tied to a bed, and used when he wasn’t fucking Big Red, a huge old female roo he kept chained out in the shearing pen. The whole family has been involved in incest for at least five generations.

When Rupert Murdoch isn’t fucking his sons up their asses, he’s getting paid big money by George Soros to let Soros fuck them. They like to do 3-ways, where Soros is fucking him, he’s fucking one of his sons and the son is fucking his mother.

Hey, it’s just my opinion. I don’t know that any of this is fact, in part because watching that shit would make me vomit. It’s just what I happen to think.

TOTALLY TUBULAR

August 25th, 2017

In a radical departure from my usual radical rants on radical politics, I will now talk about TUBES.

Carbon nanotubes have been found to exclude salt from salt water. If you make a tube with the correct diameter, water molecules can pass through it but salt molecules, being larger, cannot. Simple, eh? This same, obvious principle can be applied for other liquids as well as gases. Nano tube sieves can be made to separate gases according to molecule size. What a gas, huh?

So devices can be made to turn seawater into fresh water without having to convert it to steam and condense the steam, and deal with tons of various salts and chemicals left behind. This is one more possible future way to meet the world’s increasing fresh water shortage. Of course, another and much more effective way would be to get rid of about half of us humans and keep us at that number. No one wants to consider that, however. Anyway…

Nanotubes are proving to have all sorts of uses. Hollow tubes can be much stronger than solid bars of the same material, structurally. Nanotubes are already used for injecting ova and various critters on a microscopic level, like a hypodermic. Graphene nanotubes could be used to create radar pulses on a previously unattainably high frequency level. I wonder what energy pulses would do that are .4 nanometers in wavelength, shot out of a single atom width walled graphene waveguide? Or a max. intensity laser beam of that width? It would be sharper than the finest obsidian blade. Talk about slicing up a cake of cheese instantly, Hooboy. Of course, the cuts would be so fine that the cheese would probably flow back together and heal itself but…. there’s other applications.

Well, I was going to title this “Speak Through The Tube” but thought better of it.

MEXICO STILL SUCKS

August 23rd, 2017

Years ago I posted an article here titled MEXICO SUCKS. Mexico still sucks.

The U.S. Department of State issued a travel warning Tuesday for Americans traveling to certain parts of Mexico.

The advisory cautions citizens to avoid traveling to certain locations due to increased criminal activity.

Areas such as Baja California Sur, where the popular tourist destination Cabo San Lucas is, and Quintana Roo, where Cancun and Riviera Maya are located, have seen a spike in homicide rates this year.

“U.S. citizens have been the victims of violent crimes, including homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery in various Mexican states,” the travel advisory states, and that “gun battles between rival criminal organizations or with Mexican authorities have taken place on streets and in public places during broad daylight,”.

So if you’re looking for some real adventure, oh yeah, go tripping off to the failed state of Mexico where if the banditos don’t rob, rape and kill you, no problemo, senor, don’t worry, because the Policia will.

NATIVE AMERICANS ARE RACISTS

August 21st, 2017

I never realized how racist Native Americans are until I started going by a local Native American cultural center. I kept getting mixed reactions from the people there, the same persons who would act friendly to me often had no friendship in their eyes.

That and my “friendship”, if you can call it that, with a local silver craftsman who claimed to be Indian but wasn’t a member of any tribe, got me to looking into the nature of Indian tribes and their relationships with each other and the rest of us, and it’s been a very enlightening study.

Native Americans are very exclusionary, and I mean very. They’re like the Japanese with all their social distinctions, except with Native Americans it’s about racial ancestry instead of social ancestry. For instance, one of their jokes is, “what do you call 64 Cherokees in a tent?” The answer is “A full-blood”. The joke is that an awful lot of people with only a small bit of Cherokee ancestry joined the tribe to get a share of the oil money, and it points out that Indians make a very big deal out of how much native ancestry they have.

I looked into the practice of adopting non-natives into tribes, and found that they generally never do. In fact, if you marry a tribe member you won’t become a member and if your children don’t have the required amount of “native blood”, they won’t be allowed to join the tribe either. That’s pretty racist. It’s more than that, it’s petty, selfish and arrogant, and the more I learned about these attitudes the less I’m interested in helping out the “natives”.

The histories of the peoples who lived here before Europeans came and conquered them is fascinating reading, but these people were neolithic. Stone Age. Some of the tribes grew into cities of as many as 40,000 people, or so I read, but they didn’t use the wheel and their metallurgy was limited to hammering out pieces of natural gold and copper, with rocks. That’s not much to brag about.

So they can pretend that 1/8 native ancestry makes them Indian somehow, but it doesn’t, and living on a reservation is like living in a trailer park full of drunks and meth addicts in most cases, and they can have it. Personally, I’m real happy to be of Cro Magnon descent, we’re the people who went from chipping rocks to creating great civilizations. If the Indians are happy weaving baskets and making pottery and think they’re keeping something great and wonderful alive that represents their stone-age past, that’s their problem.

I think they’re just hanging onto their bitterness at defeat. A much more advanced people with far superior technology came here and nearly wiped them out. Exactly the same way they attacked other tribes and villages of Indians and wiped them out. That’s what humans do. Blame everyone else for their own failings and deny their own guilt.

Their history belongs in museums, and their reservation lands should be sold off to condominium developers. It’s time to join the rest of us.

IS N. KOREA ECONOMICALLY OBSOLETE?

August 19th, 2017

It’s occurred to me that N. Korea may be reaching the end of it’s economic worth. There’s no chance that they have developed missiles and atomic bombs without considerable economic and technological assistance from their master, China, and even though N. Korea exports a considerable amount of coal and other materials to China that helps to offset costs, it still has to have been an economic drain on China.

Now, N. Korea has reached it’s maximum level of threat to Japan, the United States and other neighboring nations. They can’t really develop much more without a lot more income, and the new sanctions have cut off a good portion of their income, provided that the Chinese keep to the agreement.

If they don’t, there will be considerable economic sanctions against them that will do a lot of harm to their economy. The Chinese economy has slowed down as wages have increased and manufacturing has begun returning to the countries from whence it came, as a result, and because they’re engaged in a massive military expansion, harm to their economy is to be avoided if at all possible.

Some sacrifices may have to be made, and China may be willing to sacrifice N. Korea to a small extent. It’s up to Pres. Trump to ensure that they sacrifice their puppet to a much larger extent than they desire.

THE PRESSURE PRINCIPLE

August 17th, 2017

When a young tree starts growing beside a large boulder, and expands in size, it starts pushing against that boulder. If the tree can grow large enough it will eventually push the boulder over. Steady pressure does the job.

This is what China does. Steadily put pressure against it’s neighbors, pressing against them constantly, forcing them back into smaller and smaller areas, invading with little roots here and there, taking little bits of land, small pieces of area, but over a long time, until finally the neighbor is gone and it’s all China.

The nation of China is like a cancer, the metaphor holds true in every respect. China is aggressive, evil and ugly in it’s intent to dominate the Earth, and while their state of North Korea has everyone’s attention, they’re attempting to cut off a vast area of India’s territory from that nation by building a road from China into Bhutan, directly to a relatively narrow “chicken neck”, as it’s called, stretch of land that separates the Eastern part of India from the rest of that nation.

The purpose of this road building attempt is to be able to transport Chinese troops to the very edge of that “chicken neck” so that the Chinese could then cut off mainland India from it’s Eastern states and take them over. India’s responded by sending troops and it’s own earth-moving equipment to the area to block the Chinese effort, and now China is making angry noises and threats of violence in an effort to have their way. As usual.

The problem with China’s Constant Pressure method is that people aren’t boulders, and sometimes the earth can shift and the boulder can fall over onto the tree and crush it instead. What must eventually happen is that one of the nations that China is pushing against will push back violently, with guns and bombs, and once this happens, all the other nations that China has been oppressing will see their chance and they too will start responding with guns and bombs. Then China will be fighting wars on all sides, and as soon as that happens, Russia, India, the USA, the Philippines, Japan, will all take advantage of this and strike at China economically as well as militarily. It’s bound to happen. China is setting up their own destruction, but not without a lot of harm to all the rest of the world, and knowing that is the only thing that’s prevented war from breaking out so far.

We’re approaching the limit on all this because there’s another metaphor here about pressure, and that’s if you put too much of it inside a sealed object, that object will explode, and national borders are just like sealed objects.

The next big war will be caused by China and it may be a nuclear one. I don’t put anything past the Chinese in their effort to dominate. Exactly where the first retaliation against them will erupt is anyone’s guess, considering all the different places that they’re shoving their way into, but it’s going to happen if they don’t reverse course.

GO AHEAD AND LAUGH, BUT…

August 15th, 2017

The single biggest issue confronting the human race right now is not nuclear war. It’s not politics in any form, or some new disease or the threat of an asteroid striking the planet.

It’s the fact that Earth is being visited and has been visited by other races from other planets circling other stars, and they’ve been coming here for thousands of years that we know of, and possibly much longer than that.

The evidence, the proof, is absolutely undeniable. More and more testimony is coming to light from our astronauts who went to the Moon. They’re telling what they saw, buildings and other space craft. We have photographs released by Russian and Chinese cosmonauts showing a wide variety of installations on our Moon. We have tens of thousands of photographs of them in the sky, millions of witnesses, our jet fighters were even knocked out of the sky over Wash. DC after going after some UFOs that showed up on radar.

People don’t want to accept that alien races are here, it scares them. These are the same emotional cowards who actually believe that they have souls, that they come back to life again after death and live forever in some wonderful, forever happy paradise. If that isn’t completely stupid, nothing is, but that’s the level of fear in most of us. Reality is just too frightening.

What this is ultimately going to mean to the human race, I have no idea. Maybe they all have an agreement to keep their hands off and just watch us, but if that’s so, what about the shooting down, or however they did it, of our aircraft? What about all the documented abductions? What about them showing themselves to us so much? Some of them, at least, don’t seem to care at all whether we see their craft or not.

There’s more than one alien race here, and at least one interferes with us whenever they want to.

I can’t help thinking that they’re doing more than just watching us and taking a few samples once in a while for testing. Meanwhile, I keep seeing all the political bullshit going on, the threats and counter-threats, the blustering and missile-waving, and I just think, What the fuck is wrong with you jackasses that you can’t all get together in peace and work together? Why the constant King Of The Mountain bullshit?

And you know that those others here watching us are wondering exactly the same thing.

DANCING WITH POT GROWERS

August 14th, 2017

My neighbor has something like 25 or so big pot plants in his back yard in violation of Calif. growing laws, which currently allow 12 plants in this county for medical purposes. Of course, he grows it for the money like everyone else and sells it to private dealers and, maybe, medical pot dispensaries. The pot dispensaries are all a bunch of crooks in my estimation, and a pack of liars as well, who will tell you your product is nearly worthless and offer you a tiny sum for all your hard work and expense.

Most all the Med. pot seller’s shops are in seedy, poor areas for two reasons, one is that the cheap bastards don’t want to pay a higher rent for a nice place, and the other is that most landlords refuse to rent to them because of the crappy clientele they attract.

IN THE MEANTIME, and for the past few years at least, that I know of, people here in my area have been buying up acreage out where the water is cheap, planning to plant huge pot crops as soon as it’s legal to do so, which it soon will be now. So while all those acres here go into marijuana production, the same will be happening to at least another million acres in California, even as 2 or 3 million people just in Los Angeles alone start growing their allowed 6 plants per person for recreational use. Many of them will be growing indoors to keep their neighbors from stealing it.

VERY SOON NOW, there will be tons and tons and tons of high grade marijuana available to pretty much anyone, anywhere in the state, AND IN THE MEANTIME, pressure is mounting to shut down the Medical Marijuana Dispensaries because Counties and the State both want to collect TAXES on the sale of pot, and the dispensaries cheat like hell on that because most of them only take cash, which they don’t have to report the way they do credit sales and bank deposits.

There’s going to be so much pot for sale that the price is going to drop down to almost nothing. It’s SUPPLY AND DEMAND that drives the price of desired consumer goods. Back when really top grade pot was selling for %4000 a pound right here in sunny California, there were constant arrests for growing it and lots of people were going to prison. The supply was low because of that, so the demand was high.

Now what happens, when the same quality pot is growing in everyone’s back yard, basement, attic, spare bedroom, closet, and being farmed all over the state?

Legalizing marijuana is great for pot smokers, but it’s the end of a way of life for the mountain Mom & Pop pot farmers, and all those people who are pouring money into pot farm futures now are going to lose their collective ass, but good.

BANANA APE

August 13th, 2017

A black ape eating a banana. National Geographic expedition to Africa photo.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch sat as everyone else stood during the playing of our National Anthem over the weekend, eating a banana, ahead of a Saturday preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals, the AP reports.

It’s not that black assholes like this don’t have a right to behave like assholes this way, they do, but when they disrespect our country even while they’re making fortunes because they’re so lucky as to have been born in it, that just tends to piss the rest of us off.

I have yet to see one white person do anything like this. Illegal aliens, mostly Mexicans, frequently disrespect our Flag, but it’s always American black people, born here and raised here, who think it’s STYLISH to act like traitors and haters of America.

We’re not without means of punishing these assholes, though. We can stop going to his teams games and we can keep speaking out about this ASSHOLE until he finally get fired, or just left out and ignored by team owners when his contract expires, exactly as happened to that ASSHOLE Colin Kaepernick, who refused to stand for our National Anthem.
