DANCING AT THE DEVIL’S WEDDING

Monday, 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

Friday, 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

Friday, 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

Thursday, 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

Tuesday, 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.

TOTALLY TUBULAR

Friday, 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

Wednesday, 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

Monday, 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?

Saturday, 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

Thursday, 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…

Tuesday, 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

Monday, 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

Sunday, 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.

HIGH DESERT

Thursday, August 10th, 2017

A high desert is one at high elevation, way up above sea level. Like the Mohave and Colorado Deserts in California. The Mohave averages 5000 feet elevation while the Colorado is from 1000 to 10,000 feet elevation.

Desert Hot Springs is in the Colorado Desert but at only 1000 feet or so elevation. I’m very familiar with the town as my mother and grandmother and I all used to own property there. I had 2.5 acres there as well as a city lot. Too bad I didn’t keep it as that land is worth about $1 Million today. Ah well.

Anyway, Desert Hot Springs went bankrupt once in 2007 and nearly did it again in 2014, but they decided to vote on making the cultivation of marijuana legal and 70% of the population voted YES.

Well, OF COURSE THEY DID! 70% of the population is MEXICANS, ILLEGAL ALIENS. But California gave them all drivers licenses and that’s all the identification they need to vote illegally. Non-citizens aren’t allowed to vote in America, but they do in California anyway.

So now there’s huge buildings that have gone up where huge indoor crops of marijuana are being steadily harvested and millions of dollars are being invested and being made, and lots of people are expecting to get massively wealthy selling pot for $2000, $3000, $4000 a pound. You know what? I think these people are all going to lose their asses financially.

With the legalization of marijuana in California, anyone who wants to can grow it and possess it. Ever heard of Garden Clubs? Every small town has one and every city has a dozen of them, where mostly old women get together and trade rose plants and so forth. Don’t you KNOW that there’s going to be way more Pot Clubs where people trade seeds and clones and the stuff they grow with each other? With no money at all changing hands, just like the Garden Clubs?

How long do you think it will take before there’s so much top grade pot virtually everywhere that the price drops to almost ZERO?

A couple days ago I noticed a skinny little pot plant growing in my neighbors yard near their propane tank. They may not even know it’s there. It doesn’t matter. They had a big crop in their back yard last year and didn’t even bother to grow one this year, yet I know they smoke it like chimneys. Why? No doubt because all their friends have plenty to give away anyway so why bother to grow their own? See what I mean?

As many people as there are who smoke it, not everyone does, and those who do don’t smoke it like cigarets unless they’re on welfare because you can’t stay stoned and work, anymore than you can stay drunk and work. So there’s a very definite limit on how much you can sell and with everyone else growing it in their backyards, closets and balconies, why would anyone even pay for it anymore? Because here’s the funniest part. While pot “dispensaries” can still sell it, it’s illegal for private citizens to. BUT YOU CAN GIVE IT AWAY. Bango! A whole new barter system is born!

Pandora’s Pot Box has been opened and there’s no closing it now.

THE OPTIONS

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

At this point in North Korea’s new position as a nuclear power coupled with their continued bombastic threats against the United States, it appears to me that there are only two options left for dealing with that terroristic and totalitarian regime.

The first option is that China invades North Korea, dismantles the Kim regime and sets up a puppet government that will continue to be a threat to us and the rest of the world, while proclaiming that the threat posed by the Kim regime is now over with. This option is untenable.

The second option is that we bomb North Korea, and do it very soon, very possibly with nuclear weapons, dismantle the Kim regime and reunite the two Koreas. China must either agree to stand aside while this happens or at least not interfere even as they revile us for attacking their “ally”.

Here’s how this works out: We inform the Chinese that we are going to bomb and invade North Korea and take over and that if China intervenes we will attack them full force, while cutting off all trade with them. Since we are their primary trade partner and this would devastate their economy far more than it would harm us because of the huge trade disparity, they really would have no choice unless they think they could beat us in a nuclear conflict. However, it’s certain that they really don’t want to suffer that level of destruction at a time when they’re trying to dominate the East. I think they can be forced to finally give up that part of the Korean peninsula.

President Trump listens to our generals and he has some top military minds around him in the White House right now. In an NBC interview in 1999, 18 years ago, he advised that we stop North Korea immediately before the situation became exactly what it is now, and I think he’s fully prepared to follow his own advice now that he’s President and has the power to do so.

DERRR, WOT’S UP, MATE?

Monday, August 7th, 2017

For some reason, a lot of products advertised on television here in the States have some guy with a strong Australian accent hawking them. The idea is obviously that if Australians like it, it must be good. Usually there’s a few kangaroos hopping about in some sort of outback-ish background and a good chance the speaker is wearing a Digger hat.

The plain truth is that most Australians aren’t so smart. Most of them are rude and stupid, like the Aboriginals that have been bred into much of the population over the years, generally through rape, which was a common practice back in the good old colonialist days when the population was founded with the criminal dregs of England. The stupidest and most brutal, who were sent to Australia to get them as far away from England as possible and guarantee they’d never return. A fine legacy, right, mate?

If you go into a restaurant and some family is in there, a couple parents and a couple kids, the kids will be running and screaming all over the restaurant while the parents are clearly oblivious to their behavior. This is normal in any Australian restaurant no matter how expensive or exclusive.

Australians are generally greedy, unhelpful and unfriendly. It doesn’t matter where you are or who you are, it’s “Fuck you, pay up and move on. Next?”

Just thought I’d point this out.

A NEW WORD IS BORN. KILL IT!

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

Lena Dunham, television actress and violently inane and retarded Liberal jackass, has given the world a new word, “transphobic”. At least, this is the first time I’ve heard of it, from her unsubstantiated and imaginary story about overhearing two airline flight attendants dissing teenage Gender Dysphoria victims as being “gross”.

Transsexualism is a mental illness. This is established fact and it’s real name is Gender Dysphoria, meaning confusion over one’s gender. Sexual perversions generally are forms of mental illness. It’s because Liberalism is also a mental illness that the Left approves of sexual perversions and considers Gender Dysphoria to be normal.

Phobia is Latin for fear. It means fear and nothing else. Most people are disgusted by sexual perversions, and many are afraid of being attacked or molested by a sexual pervert. Normal people are afraid of having any of their children grow up to be homosexual, but they aren’t afraid of homosexuals or of their children if they do become homosexual. Calling people Phobic because they’re repelled by disgusting and perverted behavior is a tool of the Left to try to force us into accepting the unacceptable by calling us cowards if we don’t accept perversions.

We have Freedom of Speech in this country like nowhere else on Earth. Even Canada has speech limits we don’t have, and you can be imprisoned or sued, or both, in the UK and many Euro states if you say the wrong things. But not here. What our society does lack, however, are social penalties for lying.

The airline that Dunham lied about can sue her for libel and should, but that by itself will do nothing to stop dishonesty. We need some sort of national social consciousness redirection that shames us if we make up lies. Some outstanding public example that everyone becomes aware of, to reset our thinking.

I think this will have to come from our entertainment industry, from Hollywood, and the only way to make Hollywood promote the concept of personal honesty is if the public rejects everything about them that isn’t. When costly movies fall flat at the box office because of their Leftard actors or the Left Wing theme of the movie, when the profit from pushing Leftist agendas dries up, Hollywood will change or else. When perverts, liars and cheaters are constantly and publicly shamed instead of being lionized, people will change their behavior more toward the good.

This used to be the function of Christianity in our country. Atheists were social pariahs and Christians were expected to be good and do good. People who did bad things were “unChristian” and told to “repent”. But Christianity has fallen on it’s own sword of self-righteousness and bigotry. The Christian concept of Manifest Destiny, where Man has dominion over the Earth and therefor can freely slaughter all the other animals while God approves, has died in the face of reality. Too many extinctions and too much pollution killed Manifest Destiny, the backbone of Christianity, along with too much arrogance.

That’s why Hollywood and the MSM has replaced God. People want something to believe in, and if the religions are phony, like Scientology cults and protected pedophile priests, then people turn to actors and newscasters for the “truth”.

Honesty used to be highly valued in America, and it needs to be again if America is truly going to be Great Again. A nation of liars and perverts isn’t going anywhere except down.

IT PROBABLY MEANS NOTHING

“Mr. Trump is sure to see at least one issue resolved when he returns: A new air-conditioning system is set to be installed in the White House while the president is out of town.”

Why do I have a funny feeling about that? The above statement in an article about General Kelly, the new White House Chief of Staff, got my attention for some reason. Hmm.

IS THE PARTY OVER?

Friday, August 4th, 2017

Last night during Pres. Trump’s rally in West Virginia, the governor of that state, Jim Justice, announced that he was leaving the Democrat Party and becoming a Republican, saying that he could no longer help his state as a Democrat.

I’m wondering if there isn’t a deeper trend here that the MSM doesn’t dare tell us about. The vast majority of Americans are NOT Socialists and certainly not Globalists. Most Americans don’t even know what Globalism is or understand much about Socialism other than that it means the government controls health care and maybe some other things.

What the majority of Americans do get is that Socialism is kind of like Communism, which they’re against, and that the Democrat Party is for Socialism. Since most of us are uninterested in politics and ignore most of what goes on, those of us who are Democrats continue to be Democrats as long as they feel comfortable with it because Democrats are Liberals. To most American Democrats, being a Liberal means caring about people and animals and practicing kindness and charity. It’s pretty simple and basic.

However, the behavior of Democrat leaders has become embarrassing for Americans generally, while the Republicans represented by Pres. Trump are doing great things to help and improve our nation and our economy. This has to be resulting in a lot of people switching their party affiliation to Republican. If enough do before the mid-term elections in 2018, we may see our Congress become overwhelmingly a Republican majority.

This would be a great thing for the Trump presidency, as we would finally have enough true Conservative votes to override all those god damned RINOs and start passing needed legislation at last.

THE LAST ONE IS GONE

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Breitbart news banned me for insisting on pointing out that Milo Yiannopolis approves of sex with 13-year-old boys. Fox News blogs are completely taken over now by Soros-style Liberal trolls, while Fox prints stories that more and more, are slanted to the Left.

So now what? What’s left is the oleo, the smorgasbord of news sites on Drudge Report, where we can take a sample of everything and probably get little to no real truth there, either.

I have to conclude that all of the primary media sources are being swallowed up by Globalists with the obvious purpose of becoming one huge Big Brother Voice for the world. The Globalist’s agenda is to create a single world government that enslaves all of humanity and treats us like ants in a hive. Democracy has no place in it, freedom has no place in it, and in all honesty, I can see sense in their purpose.

The human population continues to grow and it’s already completely out of hand. No one wants to admit that, that the Earth is overrun with humans already and getting worse, even though the evidence is everywhere. All anyone has to do is look at the condition of this planet in photos taken 100 years ago and look at it today to see the massive destruction we’ve wrought, the mass extinctions of species, the enormous loss of habitat, all the creatures on Endangered lists, the vast garbage pits swirling in the ocean, the huge declines in both populations and health of all the different fish. And on, and on.

Something has to be done to contain us, since we abuse the freedom so badly that our ascendancy over all the other creatures has given us, and treat our planet like a garbage dump. Socialism isn’t the answer though. Socialism is a proven failure. As for that, Man’s ability to govern himself in any of the known ways is also a failure and the only real solution is a drastic limitation of our numbers.

A one-world government won’t work for us because we don’t know how to run one and it would collapse in corruption the same as all our other various governments do. What we desperately need is less of us.
