Joe’s Comment – A fabulous week. Busy every day. Great weather! Lots of successful problem solving. Reduced the inventory by one vehicle (every one counts). I feel wonderful!
Is it an illusion or is it the magnificent sunny skies and hot days?
I am no longer young, but moving to the Okanagan almost 50 years ago, a conscious decision to put lifestyle ahead of “career”, was a genius choice in an otherwise mediocre life. I’ve never regretted a minute. Better than a lottery win, I reckon.
Although, a lottery win would be good, too.
Half Year Edition
The 26th rant already…..
Joe still shudders to think of the winter times.
Yet here they come, one day at a time.
Where have we heard that before?
Joe says it sounds like AA.
Quick Dick McDick
There is a “Thanks for Farming” event coming in July with at three locales; Lethbridge Alberta, Swift Current Saskatchewan, and Brandon Manitoba.
To Hell with COVID!
Load up the truck with folks and help charity by attending.
Grass roots Westerners doing good things:
Quick Dick mentions Lesley Kelly, also a Saskatchewan farmer. Her Ub2b channel is called “High Heels and Canola Fields“.
An intimate view of family farm life.
Joe and I haven’t seen an equivalent representative(s) for Alberta or BC or Manitoba, but we’re looking.
Lesley started interviewing various farmers, in a series she called “Riding in Cabs with Farmers”.
Here is Lesley’s very first Riding in Cabs with Farmers video titled “Mental Health and Farming with Matt Kelly 01”:
Gimme Some Sugar!
Joe and I will have been carnivore eating for 3 years on July 26th, 2021.
Lately, we have moved Sunday family diner to Saturday (for very good reason).
Joe and I have been perfecting our “roast beast” (Kenda coined that excellent expression). It is fully forkable – no knife needed to cut your portion.
We are using a slow cook method of our derivation that goes like this: weigh the roast, put it in a roasting pan with rack, and add 500ml of water. Turn the oven to 425°F. Sear the roast in the pan, uncovered, for 10 minutes per pound. Yesterday’s roast was 8 pounds – we seared it and got a lovely “bark” after an hour and twenty minutes. Remove from the oven. Add any vegetables you prefer – we added some whole carrots because the grandchildren like them. Sometimes we add a few potatoes for those who request some. Cover, return to the oven, and reduce the temperature to 210°F. Cook for 8 hours or more! Soft as butter is the roast beast. Yum!
What has this to do with sugar?
Like we said, coming up three years carnivore (with the odd slip to Keto or complete abandonment for birthday cake if required).
Our new sugar is fat. Henceforth referred to as “fat”.
Sugar in refined form is a combo delight – fructose + glucose.
A human body will put sugar to use, pronto.
But sugar is not a premium food source.
Joe and I will let Dr. Robert Lustig explain what the bitter truth is about sugar:
Weekly COVID Musings
Dr. Bryam Bridle
The good doctor from the University of Guelph, ON, has been taking heat from various sources about his use of science to analyze the COVID hysteria, and the veracity of the so-called “vaccine” (which it definitely is not).
The following video is an experiment.
He dons 5 masks, each with 3 plies of material.
Joe did the math – that’s 3 x 5 = 15 plies.
We already knew the outcome.
Watch the video and you too will know:
Combine this knowledge you now have, with the video about mask contents from last week’s Sunday Rant. The title gives it away “Dangerous Pathogens Found on Children’s Face Masks”. Here is a chart summary –
Now tell Joe and me that there isn’t malfeasance. Tell us there isn’t misprision.
We say again, the government isn’t a doctor, isn’t a scientist, isn’t conscious.
At best it is a collection of bureaucrats sent to do the business of We The People, not only in America, but every Western nation.
Do what is best for yourself.
Beware, a lack of knowledge (or interest) is not legal grounds for recompense.
The number deaths attributable to this “vaccine” in all it’s iterations is rumored to be greater than 50,000.
Something has been amiss since January 2020 and before.
The endless flip-flops, misdirection, obfuscation, outright lying, main stream media complacency, kowtowing doctors who know better, all this and more….. it is starting to unravel.
It is reminiscent of the courtroom scene in the movie “A Few Good Men”:
Breaking bulletin to the governments of the world, to the big money behind this fiasco, to the evil doers being revealed – regular people (and mud peckers)CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH!
Indeed, it is a form of treason to lie about something so easily defeated that was allowed, nay, encouraged to ravage the elderly, the susceptible, the unaware.
Barbarossa (June 22nd, 1941)
The 20th Century set world records in “government sponsored deaths of civilians and contending armed forces”.
The Great War, World War I, was the “war to end all war”.
The Second World War eclipsed the first go-around for many reasons, advances in technology foremost.
However, the use of those technologies by man pitted against man reached levels of depravity unseen in modern history.
Not to be outdone, human cruelty and barbarian behavior applied those technologies and created hell on earth.
In North America, in Canada and the United States, the warring Axis powers couldn’t reach our shores in any significant numbers to cause significant disruption of daily life. There was the draft, and rationing, and death, but the very real horror of having your city bombed or your neighbors and yourself shot by invading forces did not happen.
In Europe, another story, a terrible story.
Of all the obscenity war brought, the worst of it was Hitler’s “Operation Barbarossa“, the Nazi plan to eliminate Russia and provide “Lebensraum” for Germany, “living space”, by removing all the citizens extant.
The numbers are horrendous.
Russian casualties approached 5 million, and German casualties are estimated to be 1 million. This is the military only. 10’s of millions of Russian civilians were killed.
A History Channel video documentary:
If Joe and I had learned a musical instrument which would we have chosen?
We have many favorites.
There are examples of great musicians playing their chosen instruments that set standards.
If we chose drums, we think we would like to play with the passion of 20 year old Michael Shrieve when he performed “Soul Sacrifice” with Santana at Woodstock.
A wonderful mix of percussion musicians, but Shrieve was incredible.
Joe and I remain inspired:
If it were guitar, the lyrical genius of David Gilmour appeals to us. Here is Pink Floyd, live at Pompeii, playing “Comfortably Numb”. David Gilmour’s solo is astoundingly fluid and passionate:
Joe and I acknowledge this day as manly manness day.
Time to celebrate being a man.
To all fathers, wannabe fathers, and surrogate fathers, it is a great responsibility and hard to do, being a father.
We haven’t been a great father, but my kids and grand-kids are very forgiving.
A gift from heaven.
If we had to describe the joy and satisfaction of fathering, the following gif shows a wee bit of what we experience –
Here’s another image that hints at the foundation of fathering, of family, of goodness –
No secret here.
It is about healthy, happy children.
That is the ultimate.
That is the job.
Not an easily attainable goal, but one that is worthy and wholly justified.
Magna Carta Liberatum
King John wasn’t the nicest man in his profession.
Joe and I are speculating, for we have no conception of how to be King.
Not even in our hormone driven youth did we dream of such a burdensome occupation, torture chambers and fair maidens not withstanding.
John’s path to power and glory was not a walk in the park; more a “3 Conflicts” showcase – man vs man, man vs the elements, man vs himself.
Joe thinks Shakespeare wrote Hamlet with a thought or two about John’s history.
All that aside, on June 15th, 1215, at Runnymede (beside the river Thames in the present county of Surrey), England, King John signed (albeit reluctantly, but without option) a document that changed the world.
It was titled “The Articles of the Barons”.
Four days later, after crossing t’s and dotting i’s, the document was formalized as the Magna Carta.
The story doesn’t end there, for it was a “peace treaty” that lasted a short 3 months before war resumed. The document was revised in 1216, 1217, and again in 1225.
The Magna Carta was the first written constitution in European history.
The idea was born that men were due certain rights and privileges, uncoupled from their status.
The seed was sown that grew to become, with English Common Law, the foundation of the legal system for England, the Commonwealth, and the U.S. of A.
There is a memorial site at Runnymeade, dedicated in 1957, attended by Queen Elizabeth II –
Joe asks how long it will be before the progressive left want to tear down this icon?
The symbol of the very thing which established their right to protest.
The irony is magnificent…..
It is a challenge to write goodwell coherently.
So long ago, and so far away, Joe and I learned to read and write.
Later on, but still long ago, we learned to “diagram a sentence”.
Now that we use the computer so often to write, our spelling has gone straight to Hell.
Our grammar too.
Lord knows what has happened to our phrasing, our timing and tempo, our imagination…..
A very witty reminder from Al Yankovic to all dumb mouth breather morons like us who write like a spastic – stop with the Word Crimes® already!:
Al Yankovic is the master of witty repartee, of taking popular songs and mercilessly parodying them. To the point the original no longer carries the day.
Who knows what inspires Mr. Yankovic to choose which song, or what specifically the new focus/subject might be.
The net result is that his humor shines through; entertainment for sure.
Point in question – here’s the “official” Ub2b release of “Blurred Lines”:
Wouldn’t you agree that the Yankovic version is more creative and entertaining?
After all, the draw of the Robin Thicke original (outside of the catchy hook laden music) is scantily clad young beauties.
Major appeal to heterosexual men and lesbian women world wide.
Joe says a lot of the “gender challenged” would watch, too, to see what the hullabaloo is all about.
If that wasn’t enough, to seal the appeal, there is an “Unrated Version” by the same Robin Thicke that has the very lovely women (see above video) prancing about topless. Joe is in love (again)(still)(forever). Not a flaw. Just an overwhelming attraction to beauty in motion.
And an imagination on overload:
QDMcD didn’t show Morty’s lineage (Morty is a Ford), or his mom’s vehicle, but he did show his old Dodge truck, outside and inside. A hint?
Joe couldn’t leave it alone.
Here’s the result of a few minutes of Internet searching.
Our suspicion is –
COVID Info (an unfortunate, never-ending series)
Dr. Peter McCullough
Joe and I aren’t conspiracy buffs.
We find that the truth, when it finally outs, is often more bizarre than the conspiracy the truth dispels.
Dr. McCullough has been using prophylactic and therapeutic treatments with patients since the dawn of the COVID crazy.
With great success.
He actually IS A SCIENTIST.
And a doctor, with morals.
His approach to discrediting the “officials” is gaining momentum.
Joe and I believe his theories, because we can think and reason.
And follow the logical bread crumbs (remember the “bouncing ball” sing-alongs”? (Joe figures those who don’t have logic had too much LBJ)
And the data from his actions support his theory.
The following video is a conversation between Dr. McCullough and Dr. Reiner Fuellmich, representative of the German Corona Committee.
Is it time to raise the alarm?
Dr. McCullough talks about “malfeasance”, something Dr. Dolores Cahill has promoted for well over a year.
Dr. McCullough states that there are over 5,000 deaths attributable to the vaccine to date in America, and another 15,000 hospitalizations. If that isn’t shocking to hear, he conjectures from sources he credits, that the reported numbers are in error by a factor of 10.
That would be 50,000 deaths alone in America caused by the vaccine.
He states that there are more deaths each day caused by the vaccine than COVID.
Many friends of Joe and I have taken the “jab”.
Most of them similarly young (72 years and counting).
Time will tell.
Joe and I pray for all those who took the “jab”, and pray this madness is stopped quickly:
Dr. David E. Martin
Joe and I found this interesting video while meandering aimlessly on the Internet.
We hadn’t thought one think about copyright law or the possibility of legally owning a “virus”.
Someone or some company actually owns a virus?
Listen and learn, and write down the names dropped.
You’ve heard them before:
Some smart enterprising parents were worried about the effect masking their children at school might have – medically, socially, psychologically (sounds like the 3 conflict battleground all over). They took action.
Some masks that had been used for a day were sent to a laboratory for analysis.
The results of the analysis should not shock anyone with common sense.
For the vast majority without common sense, LISTEN UP!!!
Lungs are a miracle!
How about YOU sit down and design a biological machine that can pass CO2 in one direction and O2 in the other direction.
Face it, you wouldn’t know how to start.
Joe says it’s like a thinking diode!
Why on doG’s green earth would you restrict this miracle meat machine from doing its magic?
Is it masochism?
Is it sadism?
Is it a tragically misapplied and sinister case of “Dudley Do-Right-ism“, Mr. and Mrs. Joe Average doing the “right thing” by sacrificing their children to save Nell from Snidely (save that gray mass, “the public”, from their unworthy selves)?
Whatever the Hell you think you’re doing, STOP ABUSING THE CHILDREN!!!
Here is a chart from this linked article –
Six masks worn by children for approximately 6 hours a day (school attendance) contained the pathogens listed in the above chart.
Are you trying to kill the children?
This is a good start.
The Epoch Times chimes in with much the same information.
The other aspects, the social and psychological damage, the self esteem issues, the cultural impact, who the hell knows what will emerge.
Jesus H. Popcorn, the emotional, feeling, “woke” world has taken over.
Joe says this is good news from the sports front.
Seems like there are some players who value their freedom, their liberty, their free speech, and their health more than a huge paycheck for playing a game.
Cole Beasley is a wide receiver for the Buffalo Bills football team in the NFL.
The link above is to an Epoch Times article detailing Mr. Beasley’s refusal to take a COVID “vaccine” as a condition of playing with his team.
Joe and I especially liked his statement, part of which we quote –
“I’m not going to take meds for a leg that isn’t broken. I’d rather take my chances with Covid and build up my immunity that way. Eat better. Drink water. Exercise and do what I think is necessary to be a healthy individual. That is MY CHOICE based on MY experiences and what I think is best. I’ll play for free this year to live life how I’ve lived it from day one. If I’m forced into retirement, so be it.”
Admirable words which we believe are heartfelt and sincere.
The NFL has a history of making poor choices regarding social and cultural issues (Joe reminds us of the “take a knee” fiasco). They will be feeling pressure because others who are reluctant to take the “vaccine” are watching closely. From the article –
“Other NFL players such as Washington’s Montez Sweat and Carolina quarterback Sam Darnold have also expressed doubt over getting the shots.”
Joe and I laud Mr. Beasley for his convictions.
As he says, whether he dies or not of COVID is his choice, not the team’s choice, not the government’s choice.
MP Derek Sloan
Just when Joe and I had given up on Canada producing a legit politician (an oxymoron right there – accent grave on moron), along comes MP Derek Sloan.
The following video of a presser he arranged has some very pertinent COVID information and details of “official” actions that are extremely dubious.
It features Dr. Byram Bridle, Dr. Don Welsh, and Dr. Patrick Phillips.
How much evidence does it take to shut down a flawed program?
We reckon we’ll find out one tragedy at a time:
The lab conducting this experiment has done magical work. Pedantic work, but earth shaking.
Joe and I deduce from this short peek at genetic science that evolution is.
Evolution is a fact we mean.
What brilliance to observe for 74,500 generations (constantly increasing) watching, waiting, and documenting.
What did we see at generation 56,000 and is it competitive with current generations?
This is a benign form of Nazi Scientist® inquiry.
Not so much peeking under doG’s skirt, but ever so interested in what drops to the floor.
Joe and I deduce from this short video some startling conclusions.
– Time increases complexity in an organism (organisms have “history”) – yet entropy dictates disorder over time (2nd Law of Thermodynamics) – a conundrum?
– Very complex organisms produce mutations, but generally remain stable (improvement experimentation – organisms are responsive to change in “environment”) – a biological “1st Law of Motion” a la Isaac Newton
– All current viable genetic material is the warehouse of Life (success over time and generations) – stored in DNA and RNA
Joe loves us some Nazi Scientists®.
Up to the point they “discover” something they cannot “undiscover”:
Death of a Drone Mr. Joey Helms has created some fantastic video of flying into the caldron of an active volcano in Iceland – Fagradalsfjall in the Geldingadalir valley.
Lots of interesting drone footage at his Ub2b channel (link above).
Fierce and beautiful:
Joe and I have made our position on “Pipelines” known.
Another “pipeline” is the network of roads in Canada.
Whether it suits your fancy or not, most goods (outside of what you grow in your back yard or make yourself) spend some of their journey on the arteries (and veins?) of federal and provincial and municipal and private roads before they reach a vendor or your hot little hands.
Joe says arteries (and veins) are pipelines.
Wires are pipelines.
Pipelines are pipelines, whether they are moving water or natural gas, or bitumen, or oil, or sewage, or some liquid form of commodity.
Anyway, ranting aside, here’s a nice view of Canada’s road “pipelines” –
Tell me again, oh green ones, why pipelines are so terrible.
The facts are our lives would be orders of magnitude more disagreeable without them.
And the facts don’t give a damn about your feelings.
Joe and I have been adamant about the futility of “order of magnitude” windmill power sources.
The cost of building these dangerous monstrosities in relation to their useful life / maintenance cost / return on investment is a no-go. It is obvious to us that monumental intervention in the supply – demand give and take of free trade (or “capitalism”) resulted in massive hemorrhaging of the public purse into somebody’s personal wealth.
A windmill on a small holding with modest power requirements, combined with an economically matched solar array is viable, but expensive.
A fucking giant fan that weighs hundreds of tons (and tonnes, too), poses danger to natural fauna, astronomical up front cost for build and install, a machine that requires extremely costly maintenance and servicing, meanwhile providing unreliable amounts of energy….. an experiment past proof.
These machines are an idea that did not meet expectations.
OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!:
To Joe and I, the clear leader in commercial space delivery systems is Space X.
The video below is of the 19th landing this year (that’s 3 a month, average!) and the 88th successful recovery (that’s a piano!).
This flight delivered a GPS satellite into orbit for the American Space Force on June 17th, 2021.
Speaking of recovery, the first stage landing is only a few metres off target center.
For us, the first clear video of an actual touchdown we’ve seen.
Mama mia, that’s some spicy meat balls!:
Joe’s Comment – This week has been a cluster of lost time and maligned effort. In retrospect, I would have been farther ahead by behaving as the two old timers in the graphic above. I can’t explain it away. It wasn’t for lack of trying.
The look on my face at the end of this week is captured perfectly by the screwed image. Oh well, what the hell!
I’ll try a new tactic this week…..
Dr. Patrick Moore
This rant will always honor the words of Dr. Patrick Moore whenever he blesses the world with another presentation.
Dr. Moore is not a “one trick pony”.
He is a rarity; a thinking man.
One thing he thinks about often is sustainable environmentalism.
This presentation is recent and a great pleasure to watch:
COVID Blah Blah
The link to this video came from David S. (thanks muchly Dave!).
What a fresh breath of air in Oh! Canada.
The first time Joe and I have listened to Laura-Lynn Thompson and our impression of her warrants further listening, maybe even adulation.
This is the sort of information people need.
The short clip of Bill Marr, vampire of the leftist idiology, was worth the price of admission.
Also found in this one hour extravaganza is Michael J. Matt, and Dr. Reiner Fuellmich.
And the Kelowna businessman Steve Merrill, who has barred anyone from his business who wears a mask and/or has had the “vaccination” (at approx. 30:45 minutes).
Laura-Lynn is a Christian. Not a reason to discredit her.
Joe and I say Jesus is just alright with we (Doobie Brothers reference).
We aren’t vindictive. Well, Joe might be a bit…..
It has crossed our mind that we will not associate with those who have been vaccinated either. Not so much an IQ test as a health risk.
Vaccined folks sloughing off those spiked proteins might compromise our personal environment:
Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi
This man is a medical doctor, a Professor Emeritus of Medical Microbiology and Immunology, Former Chair, Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene.
He is in the good company of Dolores Cahill, Ivor Cummins, and many others who have been swimming upstream against the tsunami of gobbledygook pressuring everyone to take a “vaccine” that is not a vaccine.
Dr. Bhakdi has been saying so, with conviction and passion, for over a year.
Joe and I featured three interview videos with him in Sunday Rant – 5120.
He is adamant that you DO NOT “VACCINATE” CHILDREN.
If an adult person chooses to take this experimental injection after watching the good doctor explain what happens in your body, you might be a fool, but you are perfectly free to do so from our perspective.
Second time around, the attack on your veins and arteries goes through the roof.
Third time is a charm. From the Grim Reaper.
Dr. Bhakdi believes the risk of death that accompanies a third go-around is so significant, and so obvious to a learned person, that legal action is justified.
Watch and learn:
How is a mud pecker like Joe and me going to verify this information?
The short answer is we cannot. (Patrick Moore reference “Fake Invisible Catastrophes“).
What to do?
Look for more data.
Here is a video from Alex Pierson‘s “On Point” show, interviewing Dr. Byram Bridle, Professor of Virology at University of Guelph, Ontario, Oh! Canada.
What Dr. Byram is saying supports everything that Dr. Bhakdi says.
So tell me, Wise Ones, the world didn’t listen to Dr. Bhakdi because he’s brown?
Or because the holy dollars will stop flowing?
There are some folks that actually know their subject.
Alex Pierson takes the cake. Or might be she is a kak.
Dr. Bridle prefaced his remarks with a serious warning. He is a repeat interview, with credentials up the wazoo (quote from Scotty Kilmer).
He follows Ms. E. Thrasher’s advice (“Drover, tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them, then tell them what you told them”).
Dr. Bridle then proceeds to explain why babies on breast milk of “vaccinated” mothers are having internal bleeding problems, young folks may be rendered infertile, blood clotting is very possible. Just as Dr. Bhakdi says. And Dolorez Cahill says. And Ivor Cummins says. Check out the “Great Barrington Declaration” – 850,000 signatories. Not a consensus, a warning!
Back on track.
Dr. Bridle is on air telling folks “the English are coming!” in his best Paul Revere imitation. Or is it “Achtung! Spitfire!”? No matter…..
Good old Alex….. she says make it quick, I’ve got a commercial break that I can’t….. break, that is….. dollars rule (overtones of “The Ballad of Jed Clampett” and the Cathy Newman interview of Jordan Peterson).
Joe says people are strange (Doors reference). People won’t believe what is happening until the correct people say so.
Is there any hope?:
The challenge is to name these pills!
Joe and I don’t have a clue (we take no medications and we’re ignorant about pills in general), but we thought it appropriate to have this in the COVID segment:
Dr. Shawn Baker
The life of a cow, or beef cattle, or sheep, or chicken is finite.
The vegan warriors constantly harp about inhumane treatment of animals we raise and consume as food.
The alternative is something the VW’s don’t mention much – what if these animals had to survive in Nature™?
That, dear Watson, is un autre image.
Dr. Baker, with the help of Iowa Dairy Farmer, explain:
Farming has come a long way since Joe and I visited Grandma Winniski’s farm in Ituna SK way back when (first visit approx. 1951, second visit approx. 1957). On her farm (no running water, no electricity, outdoor plumbing, a wood stove for cooking and heating water, one fireplace in the parlor), there were no self-propelled machines. Hay was cut, stooked, and delivered to the hay barn by wagon or “stone boat“, then winched into the loft by hand.
Here’s a picture from family memorabilia –
A bit blurry. That’s dad with a pitchfork filling the loft with hay. Circa 1957. The animals were tended by hand, and well cared for, because they provided brute strength for pulling wagons and implements, provided transportation, provided food, provided dairy. The following video shows dairy farming on a large scale almost 70 years later.
The Iowa Dairy Farmer has automation. The following video describes and shows how the “Lely Vector” automatic feeder mixes feed in the “kitchen” and delivers it to hungry patrons patiently waiting in air conditioned pens:
Joe and I watched closely. We didn’t see any bovine protesters. No signs on sticks.
What we saw was a form of herbivore Heaven. All the yummy nutritious food you want when you want it. Get milked when you feel the urge. Shelter from the elements. No noxious insects. No horny bulls….. Moo!
Josh Blue is a special comic.
He is funny, and up-beat, and physically disabled.
His affliction is cerebral palsy.
We laughed so hard there were tears.
The world needs more people like Josh Blue.
Not handicapped you fool, but optimistic and happy.
Here’s Josh Blue explaining how being disabled has it’s perks:
Another, because he’s so damn good:
One more. Then it’s time to be productive:
We lied. Best one yet:
Talking about special abilities, take a gander at this enterprising construction worker.
Instead of ripping one sheet at a time like a normal norb, check out this solution:
The Ub2b channel zefrank1 (that there is a play on words) has some marvelous and interesting videos to watch.
The following is from the “True Facts” series.
It is tick season here in the Okanagan Valley.
A humorous and disgusting video about the deadly little bastards seems apropos:
