California humor

Okay, this won’t be understood by Californians, but you gotta admit they are fun to watch … as long as you don’t get emotionally attached or try to explain things to them. The San Francisco politicians have rolled out their response to being one of the Coronavirus centers of the western world. The genius of our university system’s finest can be admired for all to see: Beginning midnight on Tuesday, residents may only leave their homes to shop for food/supplies, to access health care or to provide aide to family and friends in need. Resident may go outside for exercise but must stay 6 feet away from people they don’t live with. The homeless are exempt from the order. […]

The Health Ranger yanks me off the Coronovirus fence

I have refused to get sucked in to either side of the virus reality debate. Partisans for both sides have long, well-established, thoroughly-warranted reputations for exaggerating, understating and flat-out lying more often than truthing. My guarantee has been that the second- and third-order effects will be dramatic and life-changing for all of us. That is still true, but having read the article and watched two ten-minute videos from Mike Adams has convinced me the very real effects of COVID will itself kill, sicken and weaken huge swaths of the world population. I highly recommend you review his look at the medical and political situation in the article and videos below. He is calm, thoughtful and absent the excesses typical […]

toilet paper

The media focused attention on toilet paper. Their slaves obediently soaked up every last roll coast to coast. It is a NOW WHAT? moment for those who are not ahead of the demand in their household. Invented in the late 1800s, people were pooping and surviving before that… as in FOR-EV-ER before that. Impossible we think. But some and perhaps all of us may have to think again. I will not analyze or itemize here. Chase these links to see some really good ideas that we may have to embrace sooner rather than later. Alternatives to Toilet Paper: What is Reusable Toilet Paper? What are the Alternatives? from Do-It-Yourself-Danielle About Toilet Paper First, the use of paper for toilet […]

2nd order effects kicking in

The media demonizes them as hoarders. Shoppers following in their wakes curse them as preppers. They are, however, neither of those. Preppers know that an event disrupting the intricate just-in-time delivery system of our society is inevitable. Analyzing what is really important for family survival, perhaps comfort, and insuring a reasonable supply is not only a way of life for them, it is subject matter they study and regularly review. Conservative planning centers around being ahead of the rush WHEN it happens, not IF it happens. The current crop of Costco Raiders are rather the great middle of our society. Those who have some ability to spend cash or credit when triggered by the media onslaught. Those a day […]

playing in the mud

Sean called his Darby Adult Ed class “Mud Made Mankind”. He gave us a wonderful introduction to working with clay, glazes, potter’s wheel and much more. We found ways to mold clay that didn’t work. We found ways that did. He was a wonderful teacher, cheerleader and assistant. I entered the class with a specific project in mind. I didn’t care if was the only creation I made, but I was focused on getting this one done. As you can see here, we pulled it off… and I do mean WE … Sean was a big help in many ways. I have a carnivorous pitcher plant that seems to like its home, rewarding me with a fly-free laundry room […]

CDC: conspiracy theorists were correct … just this one time, we promise

They have been crushing the anti-vaxxers with every tool they could conjure up. We, the ignorant Luddites, kept pointing to the evidence. They screamed so loud nobody could hear us. Those suckers turned OFF the data we tried to share. Surely our doctors and politicians would not lie to us. In fact, so sure were the sheep of their truths that donning ear coverings and blindfolds, while screaming obscenities at us was the politically and socially correct response, along with mandating that we share their poisons. Now the Center for Disease Control admits to lying about all of it the whole time.   CDC Admits In Federal Court They Have No Evidence “Vaccines Don’t Cause Autism” HAFMarch 10, 2020 […]

Democrats enter home stretch in the race to the bottom

We have two doddering old men whose campaign teams are arguing over which one will take the blame if neither can remain standing for a whole hour during the candidate’s presidential debate. Creepy Joe cannot survive scrutiny regarding blatant immorality and criminal history, yet creeping dodderage is compounding his unsuitability with obvious signs of Dementia for all to see. His minders are now working to prevent him from having to remain standing for one whole hour. Bernie impoverished-socialism-for-you-unfamothable-wealth-for-me Sanders would probably prefer to sit so his old brain can concentrate on talking, but may be able to corner the creepy team into begging for mercy. We could do better with a random lottery selection. The Democrats seem completely disconnected […]

This Is a Test:

How Will the Constitution Fare During a Nationwide Lockdown?   By John W. Whitehead March 10, 2020 “It takes a remarkable force to keep nearly a million people quietly indoors for an entire day, home from work and school, from neighborhood errands and out-of-town travel. It takes a remarkable force to keep businesses closed and cars off the road, to keep playgrounds empty and porches unused across a densely populated place 125 square miles in size. This happened … not because armed officers went door-to-door, or imposed a curfew, or threatened martial law. All around the region, for 13 hours, people locked up their businesses and ‘sheltered in place’ out of a kind of collective will. The force that […]

media pandemic

So far it screams “HYPE” and instigated panic more than fact-based fear. I am open to proof that this Covid-19 will remap the Earth’s human population, but thus far the proof has not appeared. The guarantee I can make is that there will be second and third order effects from what the media and politicians are doing. We do not have enough evidence in yet to know WHY they are doing it. This is an excerpt from a Washington Examiner article that includes a video of the doctor’s speech. Dr. Drew Pinsky slams media for inciting coronavirus ‘panic’ Emma Colton Celebrity physician Dr. Drew Pinsky said the media is stoking the flames of coronavirus “panic” in the United States, […]

Spring full moon

My organic gardening mentor encouraged us to plant on every full moon. Not so much that it favored the plants themselves, but because it organized us to do regular plantings whether that was seeds, bare-root, or transplants. Get something started every full moon and you will always have a good garden. In Montana that assumes you have a greenhouse. We simply have too much winter cold to allow year-round outdoor plantings. What a blessed place I grew up in where we could. Lovely Nature was unfortunately taken over by lazy minds. Today, March 9th is a full moon. That is my trigger to consider planting something. Other signals from nature: The little budgies have returned to our neighborhood. The glaciers […]

We still have Daylight Savings Time???

You would have expected us to be smarter than that, or have our politicians under better control by now. Nope. A Tulsa publisher looks at it: ‘Spring forward’ has lots of haters, so why has daylight saving time been so hard to change? Bitterroot Bugle looks at it: My post three years ago. daylight savings Sure is a shame about the hour I am losing this weekend. It was the one I intended to spend worshiping our government. While there is even a .gov website describing circadian rhythms, other than the governments of Arizona and Hawaii, the rest of the governments within the USofA seem to be clueless about it. I’ll put it in simple terms even a legislator can […]

I have enough guns

That phrase is heresy for most Montanans. Its profane counterpart, “I have enough ammo” is just as bad. It is a good way to get shunned from polite company, trussed-up and shipped to San Francisco from others. But really, how many guns are you likely to deploy and how many rounds of ammo can you expend fighting off the zombie apocalypse before one of them takes you out? More importantly, if/when TS actually hits TF, or TEOTWAWKI if you will, gun fights are likely to take out a lot fewer than disease, suicide, starvation and other less dramatic breakdowns of the easy living we currently enjoy. If you are developing accommodations for your castle defense team, a couple month’s […]

non-handshake greetings

My wife sent me a video link on fist-bumping as a major improvement in social hygiene. You can see in the clip to the right that handshaking is a significant disease spreading vector. I confess to having hand-shaking deeply embedded into my cultural norms. My circle of acquaintances are probably similarly programmed. I’m not sure this can work. Of course the lamestream media onslaught of virus fear-mongering should make this an opportune moment in our history for a cultural shift in greeting and deal-making rituals. I suppose that is assuming we don’t want to regularly challenge our immune systems. I share with you here a photographic set of cultural alternatives to the western handshake. I think a hands at […]

getting lost in the woods

I share this article, following with my comments. California couple who vanished for nearly a week found alive from commanderzero.com You know, stereotypes are not always accurate…but…they save time and the exist for a reason. Part of me wants to say that this is a case of ‘academics’ who know their way around a college campus but have a total disconnect from the real world and it’s real world consequences. INVERNESS, Calif. (AP) — An academic couple who got lost during a Valentine’s Day hike in the woods of Northern California was found Saturday by rescuers who spent almost a week looking for them and had given up hopes of finding them alive. Carol Kiparsky, 77, and Ian Irwin, 72, […]
