I am old, fat and arthritic, and I laugh about it. I am a Christian. Patty and I have been married 45 years, and boy did I luck out there. We have 3 children and 10 grandchildren. I served in the Corps (there is no Corps but the United States Marine Corps and Chesty Puller was its prophet). I worked as a computer programmer and database administrator.

I read a lot of history. I like to kayak. I like to draw.

Petty politicians, modern day ward heelers like Harris and Clinton, try to appropriate the mantles of great men like Jackie Robinson. He endured torrents of abuse (on the field and off), performed at the pinnacle of athletic excellence and did it all with grace. They somehow expect their pedestrian efforts to be received with the same kind of acclaim Jackie Robinson got for his larger than life achievements. They're pathetic posers. Jackie Robinson is a hero.

I don't know about less resistance to lockdowns in America. There's a Colorado Dept of Health and Environment sign on the the front door of my workplace. It says everyone has to wear a face condom. No one pays attention to it. People are ignoring regulations they consider stupid intrusions into their lives and just going about their business. I have a friend with a musical instrument shop. Cali has stupid regulations about face condoms. But how are you going to try a clarinet with a mask on? This stupid intrusion is ignored. It's just another example, but a telling one. If a business owner wants me to put on a mask, ok. It's their choice, their business, their property. It's a matter of manners. If a government demands face condoms, I'll escape and evade.

America has, at least since the advent of railroads, always used energy to overcome continental distances. Oranges from Florida, raisins from California, beef from Texas all shipped by rail, and then trucks and then air. Now it's even more diverse. Grapes are airlifted from Chile. Or I can get my butter from Ireland. And we're not the only recipients of these blessings. None of this happens without abundant energy. Energy supplies are not only wealth themselves, they make wealth easier to generate.

They took them by train to a river in Siberia, then they took them down the river to a howling wilderness. They threw them off the boat with a handful of tools. The family worked hard and gradually prospered. Years later the secret police came down the river again. They shouted at the farmers, "We exiled you here years ago with nothing because you were kulacks. And here you are kulacks again!" Enforced equality doesn't work because it contradicts human nature.

The Boring Company really only has governments as its customer base. SpaceX got its start from a NASA contract, and depends on NASA and Space Force launch contracts. If Starlink works out, it will be the first time private monies ever contributed a major profit stream to any of these companies. That does not mean Musk is not brilliantly innovative. It means he knows where the least costly source of money is.

In 2020 BLM gutted city centers all across the country, and they were favored, too. From my reading, Proud Boys were started as a farce by by some comedian in Hollywood. The MSM Press quickly glommed onto them as the Right Wing equivalent of Antifa, portraying them as Nazi or KKK thugs. I guess they needed a Right Wing threat to balance the increasingly unpopular left wing riots. Do the Proud Boys have a right to exist, to protest, to demand changes? Certainly. Do they have a right to riot and destroy property? Hell no. I still don't know who incited just what actions at the Capitol on January 6.

So what? When I joined my Recon platoon back in 1978 my platoon commander told me to buy a copy of the "Anarchist Cookbook" because it had useful info on explosives. He was a former Combat Engineer Officer so he knew what he was talking about. Three teams per platoon, three platoons and a headquarters per company. Four companies per battalion. Four Recon battalions in the Corps. Whole lot of copies of the "Anarchist Cookbook." And that doesn't count the Combat Engineer battalions. Or the Army. Or other services. That kind of info is actually pretty common. Anyway, back in 1978 I went down to the local Pickwick Books and ordered one. When it came, the sales clerk said she couldn't understand why people read that stuff, but that the store sold copies every week. My copy's still around the house somewhere. The US had a rash of radical bombings in the late 1960s. There was also a rash of bomb lab explosions. It's pretty easy to make something that will go bang. It's very hard to make it so it will only go bang when you want it to. And it's very hard to keep it stable. That's why all those communist radicals kept blowing themselves up in the 1960s and 70s. We're not having an epidemic of explosions. It's not for lack of information.

So far Biden seems like an equal opportunity shafter. He promised a path to citizenship to illegal immigrants. What he delivered just shortened the current process from 11 to 8 years. He promised he would stop fracking and then promised he wouldn't. What he delivered was a freeze on new fracking licences on federal land. It doesn't stop fracking, exactly, and it frustrates both sides. He said he would recognize Palestine. What he delivered was saying the US ambassador to Israel would cover Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza strip. This formulation frustrates Israel, Fatah and Hamas all at once. I'll give it this, it's efficient (if frustration is your goal). So I'm not impressed, but perplexed.

And to your point, to my knowledge, he’s never claimed to have been in the Ranger Regiment, or one of the Ranger battalions. He’s always clearly stated he was in the 101st and the Old Guard. And he was a graduate of the Ranger school. So I think, and this is not the first time it’s come up.” You can be a graduate of the Ranger School and not be a member of the Ranger Regiment. In fact, lots and lots of people are. Plus: ” I think, you know, if you really want to understand this, there’s one Ranger Hall of Fame, and that Ranger Hall of Fame is comprised of two different groups of people – people that served in the Ranger Regiment and the battalions, and people that are Ranger qualified. So clearly, the Rangers who created the Ranger Hall of Fame believe they’re both inside that umbrella.”

Nixon's 72 win over Mcgovern is also instructive. Traditional Democrat voter groups stayed home or voted for Nixon, something that happened in 2020 and then was mysteriously reversed in the dead of the night.

Soldiers, even in places as 'blue' as Maryland and New Jersey tend to be more conservative. So the most ideological administration in American history won't trust its Guardsmen. And why not? The radicals wouldn't protect Trump if they made up the National Guard.

Howdy @eschatologyguy, Thanks for this video. Chuck Missler's dive into the Psalms was something I really needed.

The only prophecy I know of any book anywhere of a leader crapping in his "pants" out of fear.

Speaking of Biblical references to nether parts, my friends and I christened this section of 1st Samuel as the 'book of hemorrhoids.' 1st Samuel chapter 5: 1¶And the Philistines took the ark of God, and brought it from Ebenezer unto Ashdod. 2When the Philistines took the ark of God, they brought it into the house of Dagon, and set it by Dagon. 3And when they of Ashdod arose early on the morrow, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the earth before the ark of the LORD. And they took Dagon, and set him in his place again. 4And when they arose early on the morrow morning, behold, Dagon was fallen upon his face to the ground before the ark of the LORD; and the head of Dagon and both the palms of his hands were cut off upon the threshold; only the stump of Dagon was left to him. 5Therefore neither the priests of Dagon, nor any that come into Dagon's house, tread on the threshold of Dagon in Ashdod unto this day. 6¶But the hand of the LORD was heavy upon them of Ashdod, and he destroyed them, and smote them with emerods, even Ashdod and the coasts thereof. 7And when the men of Ashdod saw that it was so, they said, The ark of the God of Israel shall not abide with us: for his hand is sore upon us, and upon Dagon our god 8They sent therefore and gathered all the lords of the Philistines unto them, and said, What shall we do with the ark of the God of Israel? And they answered, Let the ark of the God of Israel be carried about unto Gath. And they carried the ark of the God of Israel about thither. 9And it was so, that, after they had carried it about, the hand of the LORD was against the city with a very great destruction: and he smote the men of the city, both small and great, and they had emerods in their secret parts.

Sure, and Hillary claimed she was under fire by snipers in Bosnia... AOC is a coward and a fabulist. She doesn't mind urging on leftist rioters, she glories in it. But being in a panic room with Republicans is unbearable.

Kaiser Wilhelm II famously said that God has a special angel who keeps watch over drunkards and Americans. I think he said that because however foolish or naive we were, we always seemed to prosper. But America was a churchgoing nation back then, a nation of believers. In Deuteronomy Moses spoke of a mountain of blessing and a mountain of curses. Blessings for following God's laws and curses for disobeying them. One of the first curses was being placed under harsh taskmasters. We are getting our harsh taskmasters.

timon_phocas comments on Jan 12, 2021:
Howdy @SpikeTalon, I remember a discussion about the Standard Oil monopoly and the government's attempt to muzzle it. Standard Oil lost their monopoly control when Texas oil fields, which Standard Oil didn't control, came on line. So it was the market, not the Interstate Commerce Commission, that tamed Standard Oil. I scream bloody murder about the ideological purge led by tech monopolies. Our options are almost as limited as Kansas farmers in their struggles against the Union Pacific. Again, it was the automobile, not the Interstate Commerce Commission, that provided the options. I'm sure somebody wants to make money in the conservative marketplace. It just sucks waiting for them.

A Pavlik Morozov for our time. Like Horst Wessel, Pavlik Morozov was a legend crafted almost entirely out of Party lies. Pavlik supposedly reported his father to Stalin's secret police to be shot. Pavlik was in turn murdered by his family. He became a martyr for the communist party, a victim of petty bourgeois ideals of the family. Interestingly, a statue of Pavlik was placed in front of the KGB headquarters where it stood until the fall of the Soviet Union. A true child of the left.

Is free speech dead?

I am thinking I will first switch to a VPN provider. Then I need to search out someone who understands the dark web so I know how to get to servers there. I think they will be the last to go down. It is a sign of our times that we have to camouflage ourselves among thieves, terrorists and pornographers to find islands of free speech.

timon_phocas comments on Jan 9, 2021:
Howdy @Naomi, I think the economy will replay Obama's economy. High stock markets, low employment, miniscule growth. They'll blame it is on Trump, of course. They've promised higher taxes and more regulation. If they keep their promises about the Green New Deal, energy prices will skyrocket, just like they did in Germany. This is particularly sensitive in America because we've used cheap energy to overcome continental distances ever since the age of railroads. They've already begun a comprehensive purge of conservative voices on the internet. We'll have to see if they'll even allow conservative sites to remain on the internet. Maybe we'll all end up on the dark web.
