Joe’s Comment – A couple of beauties from Michael Crawford this week.
Although the Wuhoo Flu is still big news, these two cartoons capture my mood during the entire fiasco.
Not much point worrying about what might happen.
Go hard with what is happening – and make sure you’ve got attitude!
The W.H.O. vs The Who vs Who?
Paraphrasing Ms. Jean Knight,
“Mr. Big Stuff, W.H.O. do you think you are?
Mr. Big Stuff, you’re never gonna get my love….”
Joe and I are simpatico with Ms. Knight’s rebuke.
We would like to believe the W.H.O. is a composite super hero.
Alas, there is history that bespeaks villainy.
Just who in the world does the head of W.H.O. think he am?
The Director General of the World Health Organization is Mr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, an Ethiopian politico. If you are inclined to read the “pro” and “con” commentary available on the Internet, Mr. Ghebreyesus is both a saint and a commie rat-bastard.
Joe is going with commie rat-bastard.
It seems that Ethiopia, a poor African nation (the average IQ in the mid-60 range per various sources might have something to do with their poverty) has fallen prey to the Chinese Communist Party helping hand that has indebted upward of 56 African countries to the CCP. The CCP is nobody’s friend. They target resource rich stupid people with offers of financial assistance that is heavily tilted in favor of the CCP should the terms of the agreement fail to be met.
Alas, the terms are often not met, by design.
The CCP is truly the poster child for commie rat-bastardism world-wide.
From Joe and my perspective, this dumb bastard and his equally dumb Ethiopian “leaders” got their beloved Ethiopia caught in the deadly evil meat-grinder commie rat trap of the CCP “One Belt One Road” initiative.
“The end state of One Belt One Road is the building of a new global system of alternative economic, political, and security “interdependencies” with China at the center.”
Joe has an expression for this kind of behavior – By hook or by fuck.
The Chinese, like the Nazi Germans and the Imperial Japanese and the mighty Mongol Gengus Khan and so many tyrannies chronicled in history are hell bent to force there way on the world.
Serial rapists might be apropos, metaphor wise.
For anyone anywhere sympathetic to the tyranny approach to governance hear our words clearly – the West has come to world leadership by way of the “invisible hand”.
The invisible hand concept is more individually pertinent when described as the division of labor, i.e., pursuit of self interest (happiness). Three short videos follow, describing how the entire giant ball of complexity is very simple when precipitated to a few simple concepts. You have certain skills. You have certain needs. Through commerce, you find what you need and you engage your skills to provide what others need.
This voluntary exchange, this buyer/seller relationship, is a “value added exchange”, where both parties are satisfied with the outcome.
No dog beating required.
No gulags or death camps or re-education centers necessary.
The Scottish Enlightenment was a profound and incredibly inventive period of time in Western culture. A brief perspective of the Scottish culture of the time (from the link) –
“….. as the author Christopher Brookmyer once argued, the reason that things get invented in Scotland is exactly the inverse of why they don’t get invented in the Caribbean. “Scots just can’t help inventing things. Leave one alone on a single-palm desert island and by the end of the week he’ll have built a paddle-craft using every available resource, right down to the hollowed coconut shells for a propeller. Maybe it was because Scotland was such a miserable place to live that the drive to improve one’s day-to-day existence was utterly imperative. What the hell got invented in the Caribbean? Nothing. But Scotland? You name it.” If you take the 18th century as an example, then he certainly has a point!”
Adam Smith lived during this period.
Adam Smith (like Darwin or Isaac Newton or a host of others) had clear vision and described what he saw as a basic human behavior. A very brief introduction via three videos to the philosopher Adam Smith follows:
Joe and I endorse and embrace the invisible hand philosophy.
The best possible result (most efficient, too) precipitates without the conscious effort of the participants!
So tidy, so concise, so thrifty.
Who is going to do something, anything, about these incorrigible Chicom dishonest Johns?
Whether you hate Donald Trump (what he said about baby cats!!!), whether you love Donald Trump (he is Shane, come to save us from our alter egos!!!), whether you are unaware of the existence of Donald Trump (Joe Biden’s recent and current verbal musings comes to mind), you would have to be living on the dark side of the moon if you are unaware of the amazing changes to America over the last three years.
Donald J. Trump is leading that posse. In the words of Jim Croce, you don’t mess around with Slim:
Joe and I have watched the POTUS intently since his bid for the presidency began.
When he says he wants to help people, we believe him.
Better to build a resort on a beautiful beach and fill it with rich tourists than to bomb the ever lovin’ shit out of poor dumb mud peckers in ideological fury.
Just our opinion.
Sure as hell you have your own.
DJT’s mind is agile.
Looking at his family, his family history, his business career, over 50 years of public life, who he surrounds himself with – he has experienced orders of magnitude more than most folks in his 70 + years.
In Trump calculus, the trade deal with the Chinese, the abuse of peoples and nations by the CCP (in the guise of help via One Belt One Road), the Wuhoo Flu catastrophe in all and every facet, the CCP aggression in the South China Sea, 50 years of disinformation strategies, the theft of property (intellectual, physical, and legal) – all this and more is too much coincidence.
He is forming a public opinion, soon to be vocalized.
Joe and I have learned to interpret the president’s version of Queens English (not blimey style, Queens, New York, style).
He is pissed.
He is pissed at the Chinese Communist Party.
He is pissed at his BFF Xi Ping Pong Pi.
He is pissed at the W.H.O.
He is very pissed that over a million people will die from a preventable Nazi scientist fumble of a deadly virus (if it was a fumble, not a Hail Mary by the rat-bastard commies).
He is not talking to the Chinese….. yet.
He is talking to the W.H.O.
He has cut funding to the World Health Organization.
He has given them an ultimatum in the form of a letter.
The Trump letter to the W.H.O. is concise, terse, and a type of inverse quid pro quo –
Even a rat-bastard commie can make out the meaning in this letter.
We’ve heard it expressed in many ways for many years.
It means….. money talks, bull shit walks.
One more economic vampire on the neck of the West bites dust.
Meanwhile, the W.H.O. should listen to The Who while looking long and hard into a genuine made in America mirror:
Why Joe Fears the Sea
A lot of female folks have an idea that heaven looks a lot like this –
In the female mind, the person in the above image is them.
Not a care in the world.
Exploring the warm sea in the hot sun on a beautifully sandy and deserted and exotic beach.
Whatever “exotic” means…..
Back at the cabana there are many happy smiley tiny brown people just waiting to serve them all de doo-da day.
Not so with Joe.
This is the scene of untold atrocities, perpetuated by hoards of evil beings who, if they could, would claim they are only “doing what comes natural”.
Oh! The humanity!
The amazing crew at True Facts (zefrank1) has captured much of this carnage on video.
Take a few minutes and watch the killer surfing snails in action and tell Joe that you don’t fear for your life whenever you stick your big toe in the ocean:
If that doesn’t revolt you, how about the incredibly disgusting Bobbit worm and their Polychaete pals:
Joe fears the sea.
Joe is revolted by the sea.
Joe says, and it is true: whales poop in the sea!
And the bottom is littered with dead sailors, dead sea fauna, dead sea flora.
The outfall of Victoria BC’s tertiary treated sewage, i.e., human waste, is down there, too.
Joe no go, no swim in sea.
So, what say ye to a nice splash in a puddle, a wallow in a pond, a dunk and a dive in a lake?
Quoting the great John McEnroe, you cannot be serious!
Every drop of Nature’s Water™ has some sort of inhuman corruption behaving badly with malicious intent.
A short video to prove the point. True Facts presents “Carnivorous Dragonflies:
Joe fears Nature®.
Nature is not throttled, not controlled; it is chaos – it is Life©.
Life is wild, mutating, unconscious, and NOT YOUR FRIEND!!!
Joe will swim in a chlorine saturated pool, only in daylight, thank you very much.
Maybe some DDT, too, in the pool.
Joe and I view something from the Epoch Times every day.
Here is a perspective from Conrad Black (a great Canadian by proxy) we thought worthy of reading twice.
The point he makes is the Democrat party is gambling everything on blaming the Coronavirus lock stock and barrel on President Trump.
If they are successful, they will de-throne Donald Trump and Joe Biden will become the President.
The not-so-bright thug who is literally losing his mind in front of the American people.
This is some very weak beer the Democrats are pinning their donkey tail hopes upon.
Voters are fickle. Here’s a quote from the opinion piece –
“As strategies go, it’s crude and even rather contemptible, but it is attached to a premise that may be valid: all the rest of this president’s record, including his formerly brilliant record on the economy and his drastic reduction of illegal immigration and recognition of the need to meet the China challenge, may be swamped in a referendum on his handling of the coronavirus pandemic—that question may be the real version of the question to the voters of whether they approve of Trump.
If this happens, as now appears likely, it will not only obscure the rest of Trump’s record in these last, eventful three years, it is clearly the fervent hope of the Democrats that this over-arching question will expunge from the voters’ thoughts the problem of the allegation of sexual impropriety against Joe Biden, and the growing apprehension of political damage over the obviously lawless conduct of the Barack Obama FBI and intelligence leadership in the 2016 election and aftermath.”
And so it goes.
Joe and I stick to our belief that there are about 40 million people in America who are so stupid they cannot perform meaningful work.
Even then, those of legal age are voters.
And there are plenty of illegal residents who somehow manage to vote in California and New York.
Mr. Black presents a viable case.
An interesting read written by an interesting Canadian.
