Stupid is as stupid does, that and a box of chocolates.
Yes, dumbass passwords that people use on their most trusted data and nude selfies. No wonder they get caught.
Don’t do this.
The link is above, but here’s a sample to show you that even you could break into these machines:
Way to go Jessica, or your editor more likely. It’s like something big is on Uranus.
A lot of issues have arisen recently that pattern this event in history.
First, in order to get an Affirmative Action SCOTUS judge, a female judge couldn’t define a woman.
Next, for 2 years during COVID, your body belonged to Fauci/Gates/CDC/Pfizer/Big Tech/Big Government/WEF and your body was not your choice for a jab. Get it or be fired. Get it or lose benefits. Get it or you will kill granny/kids/unvaxxed/vaxxed/aliens/Klingons and many others. My body my choice doesn’t matter.
Not written in the Bill of Rights, but legislated to us via a poorly handled Roe case was Abortion. It is the holy sacrament for liberals, feminists, LGBQ+XYZFJB, and the other God hating people. It is not a right.
Then, the Roe v Wade overturn got leaked illegally to try and stop it’s passage, treason only a few years ago. Now, it is cover for the economy screw ups, the 2000 Mule movie documenting the theft of the 2020 election, the border or the Ukraine fuck up (giving them more money than it takes to protect our borders)
And out of nowhere, birthing persons, pregnant men and anything else other than 2 genders, male or female and these people have lost their minds. Now the my body my choice that rang hollow after Covid is back for “women”. Now, females can define what a woman is, unless it is a baby inside of a mother, who is female 100% of the time at birth.
What did all of this get females?
Here’s what I know. Abortion and Planned Parenthood are the child of Margaret Sanger, known racist, eugenics supporter and child murderer invented this to exterminate Blacks. She, by death count is worse than Hitler or Stalin. That is who is behind this. She was put on a platform to be worshipped by feminists, (now by association racists) Democrats and the rest of those too far left to be democrats.
How is it Racist, abortionists prey on black women?
Sanger said, “We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.” She hoped for the “elimination and eventual extinction of defective stock — those human weeds which threaten the blossoming of the finest flowers of American civilization.”
I had a conversation with Alise M. at IBM about this. She was hell bent on telling me (yelling at me, typical of a feminist) how wrong I was about abortion. She had just had a child and I asked her the obvious. How can you kill a child, knowing that one just grew inside of you. I guess basic Biology was too much for this conversation. I explained how abortion dismembers babies in the womb, that there are survivors now in the low double digit gestation weeks and that more women are born than men, so it’s discrimination against your gender.
I gave up when I realized that like all abortion supporters (murder activists), they’d rather kill a baby than care and nurture for a life.
I got the argument then from her, my body my choice. I have news for you. Two heartbeats and two distinctly different sets of DNA say it isn’t your body. Did she listen, of course not. Facts get in the way of emotion when spewing the feminist lies about this.
I realized that these hateful people don’t care about facts. Abortion supporters want to murder the most innocent and those who can’t protect themselves. That is evil and morally vacuous. We both knew she was wrong and was lying. The difference was that I didn’t believe the lies. A bunch of cells is not a human is a distortion of speech to justify this atrocious behavior.
Killing the unborn has been around since Molech. This isn’t new. Murder is murder. It’s one of the big 10, but I don’t expect them to believe in sin. Don’t try to kid me.
I felt bad for her and those who feel this way. If they can kill a child, what else is more evil than that? What more evil will they support? Now, they are trying to change their kids gender as soon as they are done changing their diapers. That and poisoning the kids with the Covid Jab when they don’t need it show what they are willing to do to children.
So Feminists just gave up their biggest lie, also their biggest argument. It never was their body and spew all the lies you want and that the media will support you on. You need a new lie.
I’ve got an idea. How about if you worry about feeding the babies instead of killing them, you might be taken seriously. There is a significant lack of formula, brought to you by the same people who locked you down and ruined the economy and the supply chain.
The latest version of the Women’s Health Protection Act (WHPA), which would effectively make abortion a statutory right, scrubbed references to transgender and nonbinary people’s pregnancies as well as language related to “reproductive justice.”
Earlier versions of the bill used language tying race and transgenderism to the issue of abortion in its non-binding “Findings” section. Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, the bill’s sponsor, told Politico the language had been removed from the bill due to objections from some Democrats.
The newest version removed referenced to white supremacy and gender oppression as well as notes clarifying that its provisions applied to anyone with the “capacity for pregnancy” including “transgender men, non-binary individuals, those who identify with a different gender, and others,” according to Politico.
This is the male guarding the nest a couple of feet below him. The hen is on the nest now, so there must be eggs. He sits there all day now.
I found out that they are Song Sparrow’s. I’ve left them food and stopped gardening near it for a while. There is nothing that can’t wait, but at the rate of growth up here (Spring just started and we still have 50 degree days in the Blue Ridge Mountains), I’ll have to hack through the weeds as everything plant and animal is exploding to life.
I hope he fights off the cowbirds, who are also here. They lay eggs in other birds nests and are way bigger than the sparrows, so that chick would get all the food. I let nature do it’s thing.
Oh, the Hummingbirds have migrated here also.
I wrote about the death of a pet last fall hoping that Spring would bring this day for me. I was sorry to see Fred go.
In one week I have a new spider and will have baby birds that I get to watch. I noticed the sparrow on the ground gathering nest material in the field outside of my house. I wondered where the nest was, only to find later in the day that it was just outside of my kitchen window.
I named her Wilma after a little sister in my Fraternity. I don’t think she’d appreciate it, but the spider reminded me of her. Only later did I realize the Fred and Wilma Flintstones connection. Fred was named for a guy I know from the town that I moved away from recently, not Fred Flintstone.
Here is the sparrow’s nest from this morning, sorry for the blurry picture, I had to zoom it in a long way:
I don’t think I’ll name them as they fly away. The spider will stay with me until almost Thanksgiving and will provide me entertainment every night until then. I will love it when the baby birds hatch.
Some pets are less personal than others, but these will be interesting and part of nature I don’t always get to watch.
Sometimes I like them and just can’t stand to be around them. It’s the way it is. I know no one who I’m no longer talking much with isn’t thinking about it, but here is the answer in case you stumble on this post.
No one is exempt, past friends, relatives, schools, you name it. If we were friends, we would be and you’d know it. I won’t say anything or be mean, I just won’t spend time pretending on social banter because you are supposed to.
I was reading a diary a few years back and saw this gem. It was around Christmas time of year and I was fatiguing from the festivities.
For me, that is one of the worst times of the year. The fake happy from people who’s true nature I know is difficult to take.
As I thought about it, I realized that it is so true. It’s really why I don’t go to many social events.
I got tired of pretending to be social and/or having a good time, all they while wishing I could leave. Hell, I usually plan leaving before I go.
Most socials are like fakebook posts. Tell as much as you can about yourself to get likes. Conversation is asking others about them and what is important that they would like to talk about. I don’t even try and a lot of time I’ll just see how long people will talk about themselves and see if I can not say anything. They rarely notice. I won’t offer any information unless I think someone truly cares, but that’s only if I had to go and I’ve already got my exit plan in place.
That is intuitive for some, but there are new users each day. We also are in the election cycle, so max out the stupid button with this next round of fun in the web universe.
I knew it the whole time. He looks smarmy on TV.
THE SHADY DEAL HAS NOW BEEN CONFIRMED.
The Galveston National Laboratory – a project of Anthony Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases – entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, granting the Chinese lab the right to make its American counterpart “destroy and/or return the secret files, materials and equipment without any backups.”
The National Pulse has previously unearthed the Texas-based lab’s multi-year collaborative relationship with the Wuhan Institute of Virology, including hosting exchange programs and training researchers at the lab’s Biosafety Level 4 (BSL) facility. Directors from the Wuhan lab and the Galveston National Laboratory, which describes itself as “constructed under grants awarded by [Fauci’s] National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID),” have admitted to working with the “world’s most dangerous pathogens” in 2018.
The news comes amidst controversy over Antony Fauci’s role in funding bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology – a relationship that newfound documents appear to show extends beyond American partners like Peter Daszak’s EcoHealth Alliance. The lab is also believed to be the source of COVID-19 according to many public health and intelligence experts.
In addition to private emails from Fauci obtained by The National Pulse, new internal documents obtained by the government watchdog group U.S. Right to Know (USRTK) confirm the existence of the program and provide more insight into the agreement between the two labs.
USRTK obtained a copy of the official contract cementing the partnership between Wuhan and Galveston in 2017: “Memorandum Of Understanding Of Cooperation Between Wuhan Institute Of Virology, Chinese Academy Of Sciences, And The University Of Texas Medical Branch At Galveston.”
The contract’s 16th section – confidentiality – reveals that the Wuhan Institute of Virology could ask the Galveston lab to “destroy and/or return the secret files, materials and equipment without any backups.”
“All cooperation and exchanges, documents, data, details and materials shall be treated as confidential information by the parties,” adds the contract.
The contract also outlines the “objectives of the cooperation” between the two labs, including “to strengthen the academic and talent exchanges between the parties” and “to promote the research cooperation between China and the United States for controlling infectious diseases.”

It used to be that whatever they wanted, they got. Now, the trannies have taken over their sports, their Woman of the year awards but most of all, leapt ahead of feminists on the victimhood scale. That means less social media Karen-ism’s and power, and most of all money from grifting and gender baiting the companies.
The woke always eat their own.
I never bought the feminist argument anyway. Why do they want to be like men? Go be yourselves and don’t try to be something your not.
I loathe the woke and the victimhood liars. All mentioned here are in that category. Live your life and don’t act like you are so special. No matter what is said in public, most don’t like it when no one is listening.
The snow is finally gone (it did snow last week) and the local course opened, so I made my way out to the course. I had no one to make up a four or even a twosome, so I picked at time and figured I’d get stuck with someone.
Well, the tourists aren’t hear yet. The snow has melted and the skiers are gone. It turns out that it was supposed to rain that day so when I got to the course, the parking lot was empty. I knew my luck couldn’t hold so I went to the range and hit a bucket to warm up and then went to putt on the practice green. It is next to the first tee, so I knew that I could keep an eye on the traffic to get out with as few people in my group as possible.
As it turns out, no one showed up. Even the starter wasn’t there. I took the opportunity to jump on the tee and try for a solo round. Life was on my side and there weren’t golfers for many holes either side of me.
I played 18 hassle free and small talk free golf. I would have paid extra money for this freebie in life.
I’ll be out again this week and I’ll get paired up with someone the rest of the year, but it was a good start.
Looks like I’m starting out the year with a double digit handicap. Playing golf is my other handicap.
We’ve had a variety of personalities parade through the Oval Office. Some have been effective, others not. They have come from different angles though. Recently there has been 3 governors, 3 politicians, a businessman and an actor/governor.
Before we get to the crux of the matter, this thought dawned on me in the mid 1990’s, but I didn’t realize it at the time. When I was at IBM, I saw Lou Gerstner turn a $9 billion dollar loss into a $9 billion profit in 2 years. IBM was in 160 countries with different laws, customs, politics, personalities, mores and religions. Every decision affected something directly to the problem at hand, but at the same time,affected many other issues, people, countries and competitors somewhere else around the world.
At that moment, I said I would vote for him for president because of the decision making, people skills, boldness of action and the understanding of the 3D chess that every action affects something other than it’s intended purpose. He never ran. Most likely he was too smart to take such a thankless job with half the population hating you, and the other deciding if they love/hate you based on the day.
First, it is clear that politicians are trained to work the system, but not lead the free world. We found this out with almost all of the senators who have been president in the recent decades. They were good at enriching themselves, political maneuvering and working the deep state system because they are swamp creatures.
They don’t have the people skills (look at the advisors of all of the recent administrations), profit and loss responsibility (look at the deficit since Carter) and most of all, how one action affects many others either directly or indirectly. Our first mano a mano was Carter vs. the Iranian terrorists. We haven’t had a Cold War mano a mano since Reagan and Gorbachev squared off, although Trump wasn’t a war president and did keep other countries from acting out. The bad actors have since resumed after 2020.
For personal mano a mano, I saw Gerstner force Cisco to buy the IBM Networking Hardware Division, it’s direct competitor in what turned out to be a dick measuring contest with John Chambers. It wasn’t Reagan/Gorbachev, but the stakes were hundreds of millions. Chambers wanted a contract with IBM Global Services, the mainframe leader at the time and said no to buying NHD. Gerster told his Senior VP’s and staff that if anyone talked to Cisco, they were fired on the spot. Within a week, Cisco completed the purchase of NHD, and Chambers put his dick away while Gerstner got rid of an IBM problem and showed he had a bigger dick than those at Cisco.
This is how it is on the world stage. Trust but verify. Strength leads to peace. You are a leader or a follower. The WEF great reset and the One World Government, socialism and other current power grabs make most world leaders just junior managers. We need to elect a leader.
Many recent presidents have become very rich while in office. I don’t fault people for wanting to earn money, but when you can be bought like the Clinton Foundation or the recent Burisma or China buying politicians and college professors has tainted the office. If you can be bought, you aren’t in charge. You are now just a debtor owing something. The lobbyists couldn’t buy Trump which upset the deep state swamp to this day.
I’d love to have someone who loves our country and is a patriot. I miss that.
So, the list includes not being a politician. It includes being able to manage people, world situations, building a competent staff and having the 7th sense of being able to see what are the affects of a decision or action 3 steps away from that decision. That is 3D chess.
Building a proper staff is critical. I fault Trump for trusting the existing swamp creatures like Sessions, Meuller, Strzok and his paramour, Barr, some generals and Fauci. He should have fired them all because most of Washington is made up of back stabbers. I’ll give the politicians the ability to sniff out the rats first, given that is who they really are to begin with. Biden just brought back Obama’s criminals and liars (circle back Psaki) and his staff is a group of clowns. The biggest joke of all is Harris. Affirmative Action has failed us when we need a leader there.
Playing the world leaders is tougher. Reagan was the benchmark. He got the Soviet Union to crumble without firing a shot. China and Xi bought the administration of the current administration as well as congress including Feinstein, Swalwell and others who are well documented. As I said before, Trump was already rich and couldn’t be bought. They got to him through Covid and owning Silicon Valley so no one is immune. Obama was a coward who went on a surrender tour at his first trip.
Putin is a tougher leader than what we have now, yet he didn’t act up between 2016-2020. He was matched or outwitted by the leader at that time, after just having taken the Crimea in 2014. Kim Jong Un stopped firing missiles during that same time.
So while it excludes some financially, if they can be tough morally we need a person who can’t be bought by lobbyists or another country. We need someone who is a tough negotiator. Looking at the Iran deals that were in place and those being re-negotiated are bad for America. I want a president who puts Americans first, not money.
Speaking of money, not a one of them recently has done anything to stop the deficit.
Being able to handle tough economic situations, like reducing inflation instead of causing it. Making us independent of other countries for energy, chips, manufacturing and other things that bring economic followed by military strength.
Most of all some one that we can respect. Everyone knows Biden is being abused and shouldn’t be mistreated like he is this far along in his dementia. Clinton is the #metoo poster boy. Trump made personal grievances too public. He should have shown more grace in ignoring the press, Hollywood and those who hated for hates sake.
The election process is really going on now, not just for mid-terms, but also 2024. The mid-terms should make a 2 year lame duck out of Biden. Then, we need someone who will take our country back and make Americans first rather than other countries.
I’ve been reminiscing about when I was young. I’d flit from one thing to the next, never worrying about what was around the next corner. I didn’t plan for tomorrow unless it included fun or something for me to do that wouldn’t affect my retirement.
Now, I can’t take a dump without working out what I’m going to do next and plan my time around it.
My kids are grown now, but I told them to not grow up too fast. They all have mortgages, plus pets and kids that rely on them, like they did on me.
I hurt a lot more now. I’m sore from my first round of golf of the year yesterday, and I didn’t even go at it that hard.
I’m playing golf today. It’s finally nice outside here. I hope you enjoy your day.
I knew the winter of death was political BS. It was just like I have a plan for Covid said Biden. The world knew he didn’t (ok, he fooled some to vote for them, but they were all jab takers).
Covid is suddenly over because midterms are here. It’s been over a long time. The current government’s yearn for power and control isn’t and can only be satisfied by their extinction. Covid just worked better to control the people so they rode that horse as long as possible
When we look back, this is going to viewed as one of the most damaging things our Government has done to it’s own people.
What did we learn? Politicians lie, we didn’t need to stay home, the jab wasn’t necessary for most people, money corrupts, power corrupts, businesses didn’t have to close, Big Tech censors people, the media lies and many other truths that have been obvious to those who will be educated.
It’s like when the answer is a dirty word, but not in the context on Jeopardy. You sometimes get to cuss, or say a word like dick, dump or some other childish Beavis and Butthead joke on national TV.
I’d call in to ask if they could page Mike Hunt.
Yes, but some of us took the time to be more educated than that sheep who just accepted what they said about the jab
We all knew it anyway. Maybe with Musk buying Twitter it will eventually stop being the hate fest that currently is. Naw, I don’t believe it either.
The moral of the story, don’t be a sheep. Think for yourself. Question everything and don’t accept what they want you to believe if everyone says you should.
Music? Way Better
Movies? More Original, that’s for sure
Cars? When cars were real cars
Why take out a loan for a useless degree, like in the title. You’ll be working at Starbucks. Seriously, some people shouldn’t go to college. If we had an apprentice program, a lot of people would get on the job training without incurring massive debt for no reason.
A lot of people that shouldn’t be accepted into the Ivy Leagues are based on affirmative action. They are saddled with tremendous debt and a lot of them with no or a useless degree, like Happiness, women’s studies, African studies and gender studies. There just aren’t a lot of jobs for that currently.
Worst of all, the Squad wants us to forgive the trillions of loans. I got news for you girls:
Here is the gist of the story.
You can earn an MA in Happiness Studies at Centenary University in New Jersey for only $17,700. The university wants “to lead the happiness revolution by educating leaders who are themselves dedicated to personal, interpersonal and communal flourishing,”
The degree is probably as useful as a women’s studies degree.
Centenary University’s program will “explore the implications of happiness for individuals, the workplace, and our broader society,” according to the college’s announcement. It’s set to launch virtually in the fall and will cost students $17,700.
Student loans drove up Tuition. Campaign promises are raising the hopes of people who got themselves in trouble, either from ignorance or ideology (note the degrees above).
Some can make a go of it with a loan and a degree. That is not one size fits all. That is one size fits few really.
It is a lesson in responsibility if you took out a loan. It’s how the world really works. There is your degree.
I win almost every argument, hours after it happened. Most people I know can come back with a line that cuts you off at the knees and I can’t think of mine. I’ve given up on the childish retorts and name calling.
It’s always clear to me after the fact what I should have said, and more often than not, I was right, just not in time.
It was the same on the schoolyard. I won very few verbal confrontations.
What have I learned. Don’t play in games that you can’t win. I refuse to talk until I’m ready. I have learned to at least comment that the other person’s retort was mean, uncalled for and at least wrong. After I spend the time dissecting the other person’s points, they have usually forgotten the discussion.
There has been a rare occasion or two in my life when I said the right thing at the right time and surprised the heck out of everyone present. It’s not as satisfying as it would seem because you never know how much you’ve actually won.
Don’t embarrass yourself if you don’t come back. It’s a child’s game usually.
When I do unload though, stay out of the way as I’ve brought enough ammunition to destroy a college debate team.
Mostly, I’ve learned to walk away and realize that it isn’t that important.
My favorite is to get them to realize they were wrong by bringing it up in another conversation, usually days later because I couldn’t think of it at the time.
When I worked in Boca Raton, my collegues were mostly guys in their 20-30’s, trying to make it in the computer industry. I am not naming names to protect the guilty.
We’d go to lunch together and have pitchers of beer, a good time and then go back to work. We were single, well employed and for the most part, presentable to good looking.
One of the lunch spots/watering holes was Tom’s Ribs next door.
On a particular lunch outing, one of our guys invited the editor and some writers of the National Enquirer. This was the 80’s so their reputation was near or at the bottom for truthfulness.
We enjoyed the best ribs in the South (Florida only) and numerous pitchers of beer. I was the PR department where we worked so I bonded easily with them even though we were in different industries.
I was used to reporters being heavy drinkers, but not on the day they had to close the current edition that day and it was only half written.
I chanced to ask the Editor how he was going to fact check his story (something all journalists used to do) in time to get the publication out by deadline. Here it is….he said, we don’t have to worry about the facts. He waved his hand in the air as if he was batting the truth away. The worse things we publish, the more they read. Everyone loves a train wreck and that’s what the Enquirer wrote about.
We all had a good laugh and we went back to the computer world and they went back to the tabloid world and got their edition out on time. The Enquirer was like pro wrestling. We knew it was fake, but watched it anyway. (Now, they get it more correct than the MSM and break actual stories that the rest of the media jointly buries).
I learned a valuable lesson. Even though I worked with the media for a living, I realized that those behind the words are human also. Some care about the truth and others care less. Also learned was that the media has control over some people. In other words, they believe whatever is written, like my son-in-law from Portland who watches NBC and CNN and believes them.
They as a group be-clowned themselves starting with the Clinton-Lewinsky affair in the Oval office, got worse under Bush and gave away any credibility after 2008.
It is quite the list. Before you end it, you’d realize just how little you trust the media after watching them blatantly fabricating the truth.
This brings me back to the lunch. The reporters today, care as little about the facts and the truth as the drunk Enquirer writers that day eating ribs. Both laugh at the truth and the integrity of their jobs.
Communists get rid of them first. People who are famous that don’t get in line? Gone. Journalists? Work for the Government they way they want it reported or you’re gone. Celebrities who speak out, gone. Look at China and their tennis star (or Jack Ma). Those who are in the commie movement (in the USA, this would be college professors, the youth who have bought into this by ignoring history and of course Hollywood), all gone. These are the first because they are easy to locate by their public spewing of beliefs. They just disappear. Their choice would be to get in line, but then they’d have to give up fame, fortune and freedom. That’s the disconnect.
Don’t believe me? Look at what Stalin did, or Hitler, or Mao, Pol Pot, Kim Il Sing/John Il/Il Sun. They become puppets of the state, or disappear. The woke will be woken up and hauled off.
Democrats hate privately-owned vehicles because POV’s (and cheap gas) give us freedom of mobility.
Ultimately, that’s what the Green New Deal agenda is about: control.— Jake Bequette (@JakeBequette91) March 7, 2022
I was so flabbergasted by the car, I didn’t even see the guy inside looking at me take these pictures. The next day, I saw him at there again and he wore nice shoes and is very dedicated and intense.
Not too tidy there with the car though bro. I thought you lived in it until I saw you were just a mess.
Too many people got educated, or injured, or tired of them trying to control us with the vax and mask mandates
The pool is the gender neutral bathroom we’ve had for ever.
The fact is, you could pick most categories and NY would have the rudest people in the country.
One of the reasons Americans have a bad reputation in Europe for being rude, pushy, loud and arrogant is that the New Yorker’s went there first.
My home office was in New York for my last job. Because of the industry I worked in, I had to go there all the time. They were rude then and rude now. This survey is nothing new. The worst employees were from or near New York.
I left Florida because the city I lived in was the rudest in the country that year. It was also a city for the most transplanted New Yorker’s. Most of my neighbors constantly told me how much better it was in “the city”. Go the hell back and quit ruining other people’s lives.
One of my college roommates was from New York. You guessed it, another asshole.
The best thing about New York is that it is there and not where I live. Unfortunately, their government makes it so tax expensive and crime ridden, they keep leaving the compound.
I decided to watch a mini-series that takes place in NY. I looked at the buildings and recalled all of the times I hated being there. It is a dump, infested by rats, parasites, and other people. I guess it also has a lot of actual rats.
While I’m kvetching, the various NY accents grind on me. Nothing can make a pretty girl go ugly faster than her opening her mouth about coiffee, ya mutha and oi, La Gwadia eeport.
Hey, watch where you’re going and get a load of this app! It says New York City has the rudest Uber passengers in the nation.
A new survey from the ride-sharing giant has found that — surprise, surprise — Uber passengers in the Big Apple are the worst in the US when it comes to manners, while riders in the Midwest and Sun Belt are significantly nicer.
The regional ranking is based on average rider ratings doled out by Uber drivers — one to five stars based on whether passengers show up on time, leave trash in vehicles or talk to their drivers respectfully, among other factors.
New York is trailed by the fellow rude cities of Seattle, Washington, D.C. and Boston, according to Uber. Minneapolis-St. Paul takes the No. 5 spot, followed by San Francisco, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Baltimore and Chicago. (note: they are all liberal cities whose governments have ruined with their polices)
News of New York City’s dubious distinction comes after several outright attacks on Big Apple drivers in recent years.
I’m counting on it and will laugh the entire time.
Here is how they define themselves and what they want:
If wokeness does still have juice in the tank, then part of its power surely comes from its amorphous nature. It resists definition and traffics in emotivist obscurantism not merely because most of its followers are not rigorous thinkers (though they are not), but also because this works better as a tactic. One cannot argue against what cannot be defined. It’s like nailing jelly to the wall.
It was in the service of defining wokeness that I have taken up my pen before. In the past, I have argued that the philosophy has its roots on the social media app Tumblr, where it was first embraced by the toxic fandom of the television show “Glee,” and then applied to try to force all of the world to become a gigantic high school where the popular and yet somehow still “oppressed” rule with an iron fist. I do not believe, and continue to not believe, that wokeness is a primarily academic phenomenon, both because the ideas that prefigured it have been swimming around academia without willing ears for a long time, and because most of the academic theories that prefigure it fail to predict the behavior of its supporters. Rather, wokeness seems to be more like the paranoia that animated the Salem Witch Trials or the McCarthy era, in that it seems to primarily appeal to young, hysterical, middle-class, and (mostly) white women. My previous essays were an attempt to see why those women would search for the ideology in the first place, and why it would attract them as such zealous followers.
(It figures Tumblr would be in there. I worked with a woke social media “person” Mauricio Godoy at IBM who loved it, then went off the deep end. I tried to protect him and he wound up backstabbing me).
However, knowing who the movement attracts is not the same as knowing what it wants. More than one exasperated conservative has asked where wokeness’s iconoclastic crusade will stop, some in book form. I believe I have found the answer to what their end goal is, and therefore what paradigm can predict their actions going forward. It may not surprise the reader that it comes from an academic source. What may come as a surprise, however, is that the academic source in question also denies the movement’s origins in academia, and not out of any fondness for wokeness. Rather, the essay in question criticizes the movement from within one of the first movements to see its rise, where that rise occurred not by means of academic theorizing, but by means of activist organizing, which produced an ideology of its own. For any conservative who has wondered what racism has to do with making America’s entire economy green at the point of a gun, or why a movement that claims to spurn neoliberalism and corporate power also faints at the very idea of questioning the “science” on an infectious disease to the point of trying to sabotage a popular entertainer, this essay is your answer.
In volume 54, issue 1, i.e. its Winter 2010 issue, the journal Orbis published a most curious essay: “Purifying the World: What The New Radical Ideology Stands For.” The essay is devilishly tricky to find, with most versions either removed from the internet or locked behind paywalls. However, through artful searching of dead links on the internet archive, I was able to download a PDF, which I have shared with Human Events.
“Its enemy is the global monolith called Empire, which exerts systemic domination over human lives, mainly from the United States. Empire does so by means of economic liberalism, militarism, multinational corporations, corporate media, and technologies of surveillance, in cahoots with, or under the thrall of, Empire’s most sinister manifestation, namely Zionism.” Sternberg posited several different labels for the new ideology, both from its opponents (“Zombie Left,” “New Barbarism,” “nihilists,” “transational progressivism,” “neoprogressivism,” “oxymoronic Left,” “cadaverous Left,” and “red fascism”), and from its supporters (“anti-globalization,” “alter-globalization,” “no-borders,” “eco-socialism,” “grass-roots globalism,” “global resistance,” “global justice movement,” “global intifada,” “transnational activism,” “protest networks,” “movement of movements,” “peace and justice movement,” and “coalition of the oppressed”). However, for Sternberg, none of these terms captured the ideology’s real purpose, and so he proposed a decidedly clunky but nevertheless revealing term: “world purificationism.” Sternberg:
Think about this at 2:22:22
Bring on the Karen’s and the feminist whiners about supposed misogyny to shoot hate darts at me. Wrong, you don’t know sarcasm and humor when it smacks you in the face.
I don’t want anymore trackers following me and reporting back to big tech. However……..There are a lot of girls that have been in and out of my life that if I’d have bought them one of these, a lot of people’s lives would have been a lot better. I don’t care about my heartbeat or how I slept, this isn’t why I’d buy one.
If I’d have known who was going to lose it in the office or anywhere else in my life, I’d invest in a box full of these gems. Just give them away on Valentines day and voila, you know when to hide or go play golf.
Come to think of it, there have been a few dudes from NY (Ed B I’m looking at you) that lost it way worse that most girls. I would have bought them one as a gift to me.
I told an Oncologist friend of mine that Covid was bullshit in 2019. She bought the narrative hook, line and sinker and is fully vaxxed. Too bad, I tried to warn her but she didn’t believe me. She’s a vaxx damaged Doctor now. She should have listened. I’m looking at you CG.
Now, when they can’t hide the truth from busting out, combined with the mid-terms starting, voila, Covid is about to be over. I’ll bet those currently in charge will try to take credit.
I got news for you. It’s been over for a long time. In fact, Covid had a survival rate of about 99.8%. Those that died had 2-3 co-morbidities which were going to get them anyway. It’s been a another hoax to scare the sheeple for control and power.
You want to know why?
Now, I (occasionally) feel bad for those who got jabbed and we’ll have to wait to find out what the real damage is. For now, a compromised immune system gives you AIDS, or VAIDS. Either way, you aren’t as good at naturally fighting off diseases and viruses before you were jabbed.
The educated are sitting around like this because we don’t know what the outcome is going to be.
Anyway, here is the list of why the pandemic is about to be over.
When I went to Milan, the fashion capital of Italy I was expecting gorgeous clothes on stunning women. What I got was a parade of yoga pants, in this case done worse than in the USA.
No matter where I go now, be it the grocery store, a restaurant, walking anywhere it’s pretty much what you see on girls of all age.
I got news for you. Most of you shouldn’t be wearing them, or shouldn’t be wearing them outside the house. I get that it is the fashion trend and they are comfortable, but a lot of you fill them out way more than they were meant to. This is even true in the gym, where they are acceptable.
Well, it’s a boon to guys who want to check you out, unless you are an exhibitionist. It hides nothing and reveals everything. A lot of you shouldn’t be wearing thongs underneath them either. Those are supposed to be sexy and there are few over their mid twenties that make them look that way.
Don’t come back with guys with beer bellies and butt cracks because I’ll get to that in another post.
For now, here’s why:
If you really want to laugh, play this song because it describes almost every name there is for this part of the anatomy. It’s freakin’ hilarious.
Same thing for Alcohol. When I see a girl post herself holding a drink, like all guys learned when they are growing up, it’s a leg spreader.
If I guy is posting at drink, I think here, hold my beer because something stupid is happening soon.
Some call it the haves and the have nots, the rich and the poor, the rulers and the ruled.
I see it as those who seek power and the others who don’t. I see both sides and have noticed more and more that there are those who disregard the law because they think they are above it, and everyone else.
There is enough evidence to know that the meeting on the runway with the AG and Bill Clinton wasn’t about their kids. It’s coming out that the Russia gate scandal was just an insider job to not let Trump take their power away. Those who claim a crime was committed are the ones who did it.
They are criminals, and will probably get away with it, unlike Jeffrey Weinstein, who didn’t hang himself.
John Durham, the man chosen by former Attorney General William Barr as special counsel to unearth possible malfeasance before and during the Trump–Russia investigation, is a sly fox, in the best sense.
Just when people, including Donald J. Trump, have written him off, complaining that he wasn’t doing anything, that his investigation was a sham, he quietly dumps information that creates a political earthquake.
That those known Trump–Russia liars—The New York Times and The Washington Post—have, as of this writing, and it’s been a few days, not even dared to report Durham’s latest court filing is a sure sign that it’s indeed a serious quake, with potential aftershocks to come.
But before I go further, I would like to call attention to the principle of jurisprudence “Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus” (False in one thing, false in all). Although written in Latin, it’s English common law from the early 17th century, stating that “a witness who testifies falsely about one matter is not credible to testify about any matter.”
While this may not always be true, it frequently is and most people apply it in their daily lives. When someone lies to us, we cease to trust them. It’s common sense from common law.
So back to Durham’s latest filing. Jack Phillips reported right here in The Epoch Times.
“Special counsel John Durham’s team alleged on Feb. 12 that a tech executive aligned with the Democratic Party spied on former President Donald Trump’s residences and the White House when Trump was president,” Phillips said.
“Durham said in a court filing that the spying took place in order to establish an “inference” and “narrative” to tie Trump to the Russian government.”
There is a string of dead bodies behind the Clinton’s and they won’t do a day of time behind bars because there are 2 sets of rules.
The rest of us would never see the light of day for the crimes these people committed.
I gave up caring. They want power and money. Sooner or later they will be moved out of the way for the next power grab. I just want them to take their money and go away and leave the rest of us alone.
Stop trying to play God or king/queen. We don’t need rulers and are getting tired of it. You know how I know? Look at the truckers in Canada. Look at the 30 representatives not running for re-election in November. They have been moved out and people get tired of them sooner or later.
It is just history repeating itself.
Here is a glimpse at the next round of people playing god with the one world order by using Covid as the switch to control the population. It’s not new. It has happened since the beginning of time.
The pattern here is the great re-set and Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum. Take a look at who goes to Davos and those are the ones who have their set of rules.
Here are his list of recent flying monkey graduates who think they will take over the world:

In the end, they will die. Their places in hell are reserved. I just wish they would leave the rest of us alone and stop ruining our lives. We’d rather not have to deal with them, but like the truckers, we can if we have to.
I may write more about this, but don’t want to get on their radar really. I know that I obey the law and they act like they are above it, but in the end they are not.
When I was raising a girl scout, I bought dozens of these waist killers. I brought them into work one day and offered them to my co-workers. While most declined or took one or two, Laura Knapp, from the NHD proceeded to knock down an entire sleeve as I watched in disbelief. I thought it was an imposition on my generosity, but then she was in the meme.
Hanging a towel on your junk is a joke that Jeff Foxworthy made about the side effects of Viagra. I learned about the pencil trick from off color office banter at some point in my working career.
They aren’t fooling me about what they are hanging doughnuts on. It’s below the belt humor.
People do this when they get bored. It is sophomoric, but funny to me as I have a 12 year old’s sense of humor.
Being an introvert, I get along well with pets, especially dogs, and surprisingly little kids.
The kids thing is they haven’t been ruined by adults yet, and are sort of like pets.
It’s people I have the most trouble with. Most of that trouble is just not wanting to be around them or small talk if I don’t have to.
Pets are great and we understand each other.
Selfies are Me, me, me. It’s all about me and getting likes.
It’s why introverts have a life advantage, we have no need to show off about what we eat, drink, who we are with and what we do. I’ve noticed that the more intelligent also don’t have the need to be so narcissistic.
On my rare social media posts, it’s usually about my dog.
I’ll keep making fun of them as long as they keep telling me about that they are Vegans.
Thinking you are morally better than others isn’t the same as actually being that.
I’m sure they think they look good, but as we look back on some of the do’s that we thought looked good at the time, I don’t think this is going to age well.
It should age like the inspiration at the bottom.
First of all, he sold the rights a few years ago, so he can’t really claim any control or make any demand, dumbass. Second, he’s wrong about Covid and Rogan has scientists and doctors on his podcast who know the actual facts.
He’s just another Karen who gives Canada and celebrities a bad name. Go back home and leave us the hell alone. Canada has some pretty horrible Covid policies so maybe he’d be happier.
It is reported that he has maybe 2.4 million followers total. Rogan gets as many as 50 million per episode, especially when he has a Covid expert on.
None of his music has been very good since he left Crosby, Stills and Nash. No one gives a flying fig.
It’s Karen’s like him that make you dislike people who got famous but should just STFU.
I’ve listened to them both. Rogan is very entertaining. Young’s music isn’t very good (I change the channel and have for decades when he comes on).
I’d be OK if Spotify kicked him off or agreed to let him go. No one would notice.
He got an answer from Spotify:
Still no one cares. He has been a poser his whole life.
Once you can handle being alone, the rest of life isn’t a problem and you are free from the grips of other people ruining/ruling your life.
I am the president of the being alone club.
The older I get, the more I don’t want to do stuff with others. I like them, but my ability to want to hang with people grows shorter every day.
Just leave me alone. I promise I’ll leave you alone.
If I want to talk, I promise you’ll know. If I want to know something from you, I’ll ask.
I enjoy being alone more than with crowds. I’ve had a lifetime full of that and have never felt the need to be a part of one. That includes standing in lines for something (like Disney) or wanting to be accepted in someone’s social circle (that has stupid clique rules).
FWIW, my name is John, and I don’t give a fuck.
First, they stop sponsoring NASCAR, now they are being inclusive. When will these companies learn that most regular people don’t want to hear about this crap.
I don’t eat much candy anymore, but I’ve loved M&M’s since I was a kid, especially peanut.
At least the green one is a girl, because I always picked them out to eat last.
The reality is every one of them is the same to a color blind or blind person. A little food coloring is the only difference.
I hate everything Woke and I’m going to have to really think about this one as I usually boycott everything woke. Fortunately, I love Reece’s pieces, which are the same thing.
Could we go back to melt in your mouth and not in your hands please?
he beloved M&M characters are becoming more “inclusive” with several changes that are subtle but noticeable.
Mars Wrigley, which owns M&Ms, announced on Thursday a “global commitment to creating a world where everyone feels they belong and society is inclusive.”
The green M&M character will lose her peach-colored legs and stiletto boots in favor of white legs and sneakers after criticism that the character was sexualized. Mars said it wanted the green M&M to be “better represented to reflect confidence and empowerment, as a strong female, and known for much more than her boots.”
….it goes on, but it’s not worth reading. Just like the rest of being woke or PC, it’s nonsense by people that have too much time on their hands and are looking to be offended. Go TF away from us.
Thanks Irish. I also used baseball cards that could probably be sold for hundreds of dollars had I kept them.
Yes, it had a banana seat, long handlebars and it’s how I learned to do wheelies. We rode everywhere and actually played outside.
My childhood wasn’t ruined by video games. Life was my video game and my metaverse.
“All of humanity’s problems stem from man’s inability to sit quietly in a room alone,” Blaise Pascal wrote in the 17th century.
I like others and have socialized for many decades, but given the choice I’d rather be alone.
I watch people who don’t know what to do with themselves if they are alone. Now, a lot of people don’t know what to do with themselves without a phone.
Instead of looking at it as withdrawing from others, I view it as learning to enjoy the time alone and discover the real me.
Writing has been invaluable to me. I write here, but my diaries are hundreds of thousands of words that are how I find out who I am and how to cope with the day to day issues. It helps me put my thoughts together before I have to face people because most can out talk me before I can put my thoughts together cogently.
Once you have mastered the ability to be alone, you have freed yourself from the bonds of others to live life on your own terms.
I knew it when they put the press on to get everyone jabbed. It stunk then without this proof, but now those pushing the jab along with the mandates and the mRNA need to be flushed.
Excerpt here, but go to full story below.
The next time you see you county health officer, President Biden, or Boris Johnson why not ask them if they can find a mistake in this study by Kyle A. Beattie entitled Worldwide Bayesian Causal Impact Analysis of Vaccine Administration on Deaths and Cases Associated with COVID-19: A BigData Analysis of 145 Countries (the PDF version is here).
The study found that the COVID vaccines cause more COVID cases per million (+38% in US) and more deaths per million associated with COVID (+31% in US).
The abstract says:
The statistically significant and overwhelmingly positive causal impact after vaccine deployment on the dependent variables total deaths and total cases per million should be highly worrisome for policy makers. They indicate a marked increase in both COVID-19 related cases and death due directly to a vaccine deployment that was originally sold to the public as the “key to gain back our freedoms.” The effect of vaccines on total cases per million and its low positive association with total vaccinations per hundred signifies a limited impact of vaccines on lowering COVID-19 associated cases.
These results should encourage local policy makers to make policy decisions based on data, not narrative, and based on local conditions, not global or national mandates. These results should also encourage policy makers to begin looking for other avenues out of the pandemic aside from mass vaccination campaigns.
In other words, we were lied to
The vaccines are making this worse, not better. This is why we are not getting ourselves out of the hole. Mandating vaccines are making this
This is hardly the first study to reach those conclusions. These studies, all done independently, found the same thing—the more you vaccinate, the worse things get.
- The Lyons-Weiler paper
- The Harvard study
- The German study
- The Denmark study (which shows Dr. James was right; you have to boost every 30 days to maintain protection.
- German government data (this is from The Expose)
- 80% of the COVID deaths in the UK are vaccinated
- Lancet: 89% Of New UK COVID Cases Among Fully Vaxxed
We didn’t fall for any of their lies. I knew the jab stunk when they were doing everything possible to say that it was the panacea. That was before the evidence came out that it doesn’t protect anyone from getting or transmitting the Wuhan Kung Flu.
Don’t buy anything from Fauci or any current government on what to do for Covid.
I always take the red pill and am glad I did on this one.
Looks like the conditions I’ve been driving in, only this guy does it better.
It takes a lot to really be my friend. I have many acquaintances, but you have to be level 10 to really by my friend.
Instead, we have:
I’m amazed at the stupid we’ve become because of social media, the woke and the tripe that TPTB want us to believe. Oh yes, and those who actually believe the nonsense that is coming out of places like Washington DC and Davos.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one who sees through this shit.
You also don’t give a shit so you say what needs saying. I stopped caring whether people liked me a long time ago. If they don’t, it’s one less person to have to worry about. I can do it while being polite too, so it’s not an asshole thing.
Not caring what people think, another of my super powers.
And all the while, they say the vaxxed are protected from Covid. If so, why are they still getting it and are being infected more by the Omicron variant?
It’s the educated that see the bleak future that is the jab. Just look up autoimmune problems that the jabbed are coming down with.
Or, you could just see the list of soccer players (footballers outside of the USA) who are dying weekly from heart attacks.
Every time I see a person under 65 who dies early of a stroke or heart attack, I know it is the jab.
It’s just the next woke thing after racism, but the drinking fountain analogy is what the current government is trying to foist on us.
Winter hit here up in the mountains. I’m lucky that I have 4 wheel drive on both my truck and my dog.
No one is going anywhere. It’s an introverts dream
In case you don’t get the title, it is a Jimmy Buffet song.
Actually, every day is national introvert day for me. I couldn’t be happier not having to deal with the drain and drama that other people are.
Now, how to celebrate? I’m not telling anyone other than what I type here. It’s my day and no one else needs to know. I’m sure other introverts know, but they don’t want to make a big deal of it either. It’s like birthdays and holidays. I’d rather not have them as too much is made of them when in fact they are just another day.
Here are some things I will be doing:
And finally, a great article on the 7 things Introverts can teach you on Introvert Day, like why alone time is important, how to recharge, deeper relationships with people and introverts superpower.
So I dedicated this to our current government, Fauci, the Jab, the CCP, MSM, celebtards, sportstards, freeloaders who could be working, social media and those trying to control the narrative on things like Covid, Election Fraud, race hustlers, mail in ballots and a lot of other 2021 crap.
There, did I cover everything? I think not but I’ll get to it in 2022.
Oh, and Epstein didn’t hang himself and neither will Ghislaine Maxwell.
Happy New Year
What sucks for me is all of this is younger than me except The Wizard Of Oz.
Here’s hoping that it’s a better year than the last two.
My New Year’s resolution is the same as every year. I don’t have one because they are nonsense. Most people break them and it is a childish tradition. If you don’t have enough discipline to do what needed to be done without it being a new year, you don’t have much chance at making this one either.
I am a lot happier that way without having to live up to other people’s expectations, which is what it really is.
I wish the same for everyone that they have a happy day and year. At least we have an election to look forward to. Maybe we’ll return to sanity.
First of all, this like Valentines Day are celebrations I call amateur night. People who make a huge deal of a day don’t know how to handle it and these are the ones that over do it. I avoid them and the carnage they bring on others from being too boisterous, not being sincere to who they really are to doing things like driving drunk and causing unnecessary harm to others.
To me, it’s just another day. Hopefully I’ll wake up tomorrow, and if I do, it will be the same as every other day. I can enjoy it for being the day that it is without having to heap any false hype on it.
I don’t recall being up at midnight in recent years because I’d rather sleep and feel better tomorrow. I gave up drinking a long time ago and will feel a lot better than the pretenders who think that they need to be the life of the party. I don’t have to put my hope of entertainment on an event that isn’t significant on 12:01.
Sure, some will call me a party-pooper, but then I’d have to care what others think of me, and I don’t. I’m not motivated by likes on social media either because I have a life lived on my terms. Not being defined by others has helped me not to be dependent on others for my happiness.
I don’t have any regrets for acting the fool because I overdid it the night before.
I hope others enjoy and do whatever it is that they are going to do. I don’t need the attention and am happier with my dog and a book.
Oh, I live with an extrovert. It doesn’t make her any happier, but I’ve been clear that you can’t make me extroverted because you are. She’s come to realize that tomorrow will happen just like today, yesterday and the day before.
No one will give a tinkers damn about New Years in a couple of days anyway, so I don’t today.
I don’t suffer from expectations not met, or hangovers that aren’t necessary.
Cut the shit. The passports are just the next level of control of the masses. All through history, there have been those who try to be the ruling class.
Look at Cuba, North Korea and China to know that we don’t want that.
Take the red pill, I always have.
