Sorry this is off topic but good news deserves to be shared:

In Canada, Western University in London Ontario had imposed vaxx mandates for students, staff etc with deadline of Oct. 1. There were large protests so the mandates have been pushed back to Jan. 9.


In Holland, the farmer protests have succeeded in driving the Agriculture minister (who bears a weird resemblance to Klaus Schwab) to resign:


Small wins, but every win's a good win. Don't comply.

PS: nothing about this in the MSM, no surprise.

Rothbard's 'Anatomy of the State' should be a required reading, starting from age 12. Once a year, every year.

I mean, I have tried my best. Here is how I have changed and what I have done:

I openly ignore "rules" on masking, and am happy to get into confrontations about it. I regularly walk out of businesses which require it.

I have made a mockery of travel mandates and testing requirements, all over the world - read that how you will

I have donated thousands of dollars towards political causes which I align with

I have pushed back on ESG bullshit professionally - and recently refused the company which I own & run to disclose "emissions" and our plan to reduce them Because Climate Change

I have refused speaking engagements based on mask requirements

I have cancelled subscriptions to the NYT, FT, and other publications which I used to read

And generally have been as much of a pain in the ass as possible

We face a monstrous machine which controls all arms of the administrative state, the financial system, social media, and more. I am not really seeing the needle moving that much. They seem to get more powerful, not less - and the freedoms which we have regained have been given back to us by the same people who seem to be able to take them at a whim

It has been the shock of all shocks that the System which I believed in, and am largely a product of, has proved itself to be so shockingly corrupt, vapid, stupid, and evil.

People think voting is the way out never realizing that the politicians matter little. Since WWII, so much bureaucracy has been built outside the elected offices (I generally call them the alphabet soup of government or the ABCs of government - all the three and four letter agencies, bureaus, centers/commissions, departments, etc) that it is not so much the politicians themselves who pose us the greatest danger, but the self-sustaining machine that surrounds them.

It sure gets frustrating. I don't know how much we are going to have to lose before people finally realize their own power. Unfortunately, at the rate we are going, if they do realize it... it will be too late and it will take generations to regain what we've lost. And by then, will anyone even know or care about what was lost? I'm glad I'm older because I really don't want to live in the world that people are accepting right now without even at least *trying* to hold on to liberty. I'm trying to stay hopeful, but with every new insane thing that comes down the pipe, and people line up for without question, it's getting pretty hard.

I still don't understand why Israel did it to their own people. Especially Israel. And why they didn't put up a stronger resistance, history considered.

Term limits. The founding fathers forgot this key ingredient. We'd be a better republic with two, maybe more parties if the constitution included term limits. Instead we open the Capitol doors and find a snake pit.

Have you seen this conversation between Jeffrey Sachs and RFK, Jr.? It's extraordinary.



I favor a return to in person voting, paper ballots, and precinct counting/reporting. We need voter ID and proof of residence. We need to clean the voter rolls.


While both sides are guilty of gaming the system, the demonrats are in control of most of the government. After Crazy Uncle Joe's red sermon, we must be very careful in our efforts. They are looking for an opportunity to crack down on the opposition. CUJ just called half the country enemies of the state and then denied it the next day. Did he not remember or was he reading the tea leaves? The truth is that we really don't know who or what were are fighting, which makes effective push back more challenging.


I received and email with the following allegory. The email was unrelated to our present conversation (and I really don't know the political views of the person who sent it), so I won't identify him. But the story resonated with me, so...

It's called "The Cup or the Curtain."

Once upon a time, in a kingdom that probably never really existed, a woman was caught stealing some coins from a local merchant in the market. This merchant was selling goods on behalf of the queen, so stealing from him was like stealing from the Queen herself. And of course, a crime against the Queen was punishable by death.

The woman was brought to the throne room and immediately she began to cry.

“Your majesty, I am a poor woman, who was only trying to buy some food. Had I known I was stealing from you, I never would have tried. Please have mercy on me.”

The Queen looked down on the woman from her throne, not with anger, but with compassion.

“It does not matter the reason for your crime. You have stolen from my merchant,” said the Queen. “I cannot allow my people to steal from me without punishment. The law says your crime deserves death, but I will show you some mercy. I will allow you to choose your fate.”

The woman looked up at the Queen with a questioning look.

The Queen's Choice

“To my left is a curtain,” the Queen continued. “What lies behind it I will not tell. But I can assure you it is a painful experience that most people fear above all else. You may choose to walk through this curtain and face your punishment or you can choose what is on this table.”

She gestured to a small table on her right. “Here on the table is a cup. This cup contains a poison that will certainly kill you, but you will not feel any pain when you pass through the curtain.”

The Queen had barely finished giving the options before the woman had grabbed the cup and swallowed the poison. The drink was sweet and surprisingly pleasant. She looked up at the Queen and nodded, then turned toward the curtain and slowly walked toward her fate. She could feel the poison begin to numb her senses. As she placed her hands on the curtain her fingers tingled as though her arm was asleep. Before she pulled the curtain back, she looked back at the Queen.

“What is on the other side of this curtain?” The woman asked the Queen. “As I am about to die anyway, please show me mercy once more by telling me what waits for me.”

The Queen looked upon the woman with sadness in her eyes. “I have given many people this choice, and all have chosen to drink the cup, afraid of what horrors await them on the other side. This fear makes a peaceful, painless death by poison seem like mercy. But the only thing beyond that curtain is freedom. I have been waiting for someone to have the courage to face it.”

Ahhh...the teacher’s unions, or as I like to call them, the Education Mafia, telling us they hate our children without telling us they hate our children.

Well, cover up? Really? Didn’t we know that 💀 ☠️ 💀 skyrocketed with the rollout, when the declared purpose was to decrease it? Didn’t we hear the names of vaccident victims in March 2021? It’s just people did not want to know. But irrefutable indications were there in the plain sight both in US and Israel.

So Roald Dahlesque text. Here,

The Pig

In England once there lived a big

And wonderfully clever pig.

To everybody it was plain

That Piggy had a massive brain.

He worked out sums inside his head,

There was no book he hadn't read.

He knew what made an airplane fly,

He knew how engines worked and why.

He knew all this, but in the end

One question drove him round the bend:

He simply couldn't puzzle out

What LIFE was really all about.

What was the reason for his birth?

Why was he placed upon this earth?

His giant brain went round and round.

Alas, no answer could be found.

Till suddenly one wondrous night.

All in a flash he saw the light.

He jumped up like a ballet dancer

And yelled, 'By gum, I've got the answer! '

'They want my bacon slice by slice

'To sell at a tremendous price!

'They want my tender juicy chops

'To put in all the butcher's shops!

'They want my pork to make a roast

'And that's the part'll cost the most!

'They want my sausages in strings!

'They even want my chitterlings!

'The butcher's shop! The carving knife!

'That is the reason for my life! '

Such thoughts as these are not designed

To give a pig great peace of mind.

Next morning, in comes Farmer Bland,

A pail of pigswill in his hand,

And piggy with a mighty roar,

Bashes the farmer to the floor…

Now comes the rather grisly bit

So let's not make too much of it,

Except that you must understand

That Piggy did eat Farmer Bland,

He ate him up from head to toe,

Chewing the pieces nice and slow.

It took an hour to reach the feet,

Because there was so much to eat,

And when he finished, Pig, of course,

Felt absolutely no remorse.

Slowly he scratched his brainy head

And with a little smile he said,

'I had a fairly powerful hunch

'That he might have me for his lunch.

'And so, because I feared the worst,

'I thought I'd better eat him first.'

But what is a single older person on a fixed income that is rapidly shrinking to do? I write representatives and I vote... but as has been illustrated, that seems worthless. The other thing I do is pray, which I know is not worthless, though God's ways are often difficult. He doesn't really focus on the here and now, but rather on eternity. And so... "Jesus, I trust in you." Divine Mercy. Please have mercy on us and protect us from evil. _/\_

Well honestly I was shocked, even though I'd been shocked at the all-in for the vax in Israel in the first place.

I guess another way of saying everything you said above is Baby Huey always grows into Godzilla, eventually, no matter how fresh and organic you try to keep his food.
