Stupid, Incompetent, and Greedy morons. I set out to write about this weeks ago, but the stupidity keeps piling in. It never ends. Today the story is that Biden is loosing the oil reserves to combat whatever. Last week, it was a letter to the justice department telling them to look into the oil companies. … Continue reading Run by Morons
My main 'goto' computer blew a bearing last night with an ominous "POP" sound. Hopefully, it's just a power supply. I'd planned on replacing it, but not right now. It's kind of like idly searching for a new car only to have your 12 year old hoopty blow up or get wrecked in the meantime. … Continue reading On Some Level, The System Works
I loathe having to call doctors or companies for nearly any reason. If I can't find it or do it on the web, I'm already frustrated. Doesn't take much for the angry to come out. I'm in the middle of trying to get an appointment for a follow up. And the only reason I'm doing … Continue reading What Customer Service?
It's been a busy, busy week here at the bunker. In addition to having to do real work that pays me, I have to prepare for a weekend away. The house is a disaster after this week's rain, and I had to give three monster dogs their baths. It's a bit of work, but they … Continue reading Yet Another Outrage
I recently had a post on The Fourth Turning. Let me tell you why this concept resonates with me. It's because I've seen it in action. There's a term I used to use for the cohort that's in power now. Not the geezers pulling the strings, but the feet on the street true believers. The … Continue reading Class of ’96
Yesterday, Vox Day had a piece on the bloodletting at the Chicago Tribune. The media hasn’t been so much indifferent as sneeringly amused by the complaints of American workers whose jobs have been eliminated by the financial rapine of Wall Street under a false flag of creative destruction. But they aren’t sneering or laughing anymore … Continue reading Learn to Code
Probably one of the best books to make sense of what's happening these days is "The Fourth Turning" by Strauss and Howe. I've mentioned it before. The concept is that every 80-90 years, those that are in power have not only forgotten the painful lessons from their forefathers, they flat out ignore them thinking they … Continue reading The Fourth Turning
I happened on a piece at Vox Day's Site, The Spartacus Letter. Links to this one. Lot of good info there, especially about how COVID works. My problem with it, as with most conspiracy theories, is the amount of moving pieces and points of failure. The US Government isn't like you see on 'Blacklist'. From … Continue reading Interesting…
They pumped old Uncle Joe full of adderall the other day, and stuffed him in front of the tele-prompter which told him to tell us that we need to pay our fair share, enough is enough. He used the same tone of voice he summoned to tell us he was out of patience with our … Continue reading Pay Your Fair Share!
Back when COVID first started, I wondered what the big deal was. It's a SARS virus. We know how they work, we know how to avoid them. Hell, Aesop was about the first to sing it. Stay away from infected people, wash your hands. Same thing you do to avoid the flu or cold. And … Continue reading Called it a Year Ago
