Sorry for the long break.
I have found myself in a foul and down mood about all that's happening to our country and to the West, with little to cheer me on. In addition, of course, the mundane events of my mundane life get in the way of deep thoughts and "important" actions. Having now to deal with a surprise bill from the IRS--out of the blue!--alleging back taxes owed. No way. I am a fanatic about keeping my taxes current and accurate; if anything, I overpay. My trusty accountant is doing battle but, so far, can't get a straight answer out of the IRS as to from where these new fees originate.
Also dealing with a long-delayed real estate purchase in Raleigh which had thundered into the Valley of Death, and I assumed lost to the Russian artillery, but now has galloped out the other end alive and well. Dealing also with doctor appointments which I hate. I don't want to live forever; just long enough to become a burden on society. Doc won't cooperate; wants me to live well-beyond my assigned time. And I won't even mention the proudly self-declared transgender employee of a construction firm with whom I had to deal on the phone re a repair to a rental property: "My pronouns are she and her. I am this company's first openly transgender employee," boomed out a voice which could have belonged to Orson Welles . . . Did I need to know this? But I ain't gonna mention it at all . . . nope.
So, lots going on, much too much to capture all or even most of it.
Let's start with a habitual theme of this inconsequential and demonetized blog, to wit, we live in a time of the Great Fakery (more on that here and elsewhere over the years). We now know with almost 100% "scientific certainty" (a now meaningless phrase) that the COVID pandemic is a colossal hoax; almost on the scale of global climate change. It is not real. It is, as this little blog said so many months ago, just akin to a flu. Sufferers from this thing have a survival rate of nearly 100%.
The much-ballyhooed CDC COVID death numbers are false, grotesquely inflated for political and financial reasons; we will see them adjusted downwards, quietly, with little media notice. The hospitals are not overwhelmed; the morgues are not at the bursting point; there was no need for a vaccine as very adequate treatments already exist; no need for a crash ventilator-building project--you will soon buy the things at the bargain bin in a Dollar Store, right next to the Star Wars blue-ray discs, and those CDs of Pat Boone's Greatest Hits. And on and on . . . oh, and, of course, no need, well, no scientific or medical need, that is, for the destructive economic shutdowns that we have seen implemented all over the world.
Fakery, however, with a purpose which we have discussed before: the destruction of our nation, its values, our very way of life--and not just in the USA. Most of Europe is on total lock-down; my friends and relatives in Spain
report a nightmare of repression in the name of fighting the DREADED
VIRUS!!! Franco seems like a breath of fresh air. Sadly, we see the insanity has spread--not unlike in the dystopian novel On the Beach--even to a place I thought free of cowardly insanity, Australia.
As noted, all this done by the authorities as part of a "fight" with a "deadly" virus with a nearly 100% rate of survival. Bungee jumping probably has a higher mortality rate.
In keeping with the theme of the Fake, we here, in the once Great and Mighty United States, still churn through a highly Fake electoral process. Everything seems Fake, starting with the gaga Democratic candidate and his Fake "Doctor" wife. Please. Two total losers. It seems very certain that Biden will not serve as President for very long, EVEN IF he gets a Fake "virtual" inauguration on January 20, 2021. He has shown himself as not only a corrupt fool, but mentally and physically unfit for the presidency.
There remains no doubt that the "election" of Biden/Harris was a complete Fake, produced by massive and widespread fraud of an unprecedented nature. Our political and judicial systems seem incapable of dealing with this corruption. The state courts and the US Supreme Court have proven, so far, spineless, and possessed of no vision of what will happen to them and to our country if the Criminal Organization Known as the Democratic Party gets away with this enormous crime. Today's Democratic Party, sold out to Beijing, is a rehash of Nazism with its alliance of leftist street thugs, corrupt union bosses, and big capital billionaires, replete, of course, with a complicit media machine, wacko racial theories, demands for censorship and the "cancelling" of opponents, and insane economic prescriptions. As did the original Nazis, they will replace gaga Von Hidenburg, aka Biden, with a cackling loon of unbridled ambition.
A few days ago, I glumly went over all this with Diploson1. I sadly noted that I had no idea where we were going but, "we are not heading for a good place." He perhaps wisely replied, "Maybe not a good place, but a necessary one." He sees a possible rebirth of American patriotism, idealism, and greatness coming out of the Great Betrayal we are now experiencing.
Maybe he's right? May he be.
