Joe’s Comment – A confession is in order. I haven’t done much since being snowed in just before Christmas. Another confession – I’ve stopped feeling guilty about not doing. I know it is time to get working again, but it is paramount that I revise my plan to work smarter AND harder.
The days have been fun during the holiday. Our Christmas tree is still up. The snow is biggly. The fireplace cozy. My Prime Channel has 6 seasons of “The Expanse”. I bought 25 pounds of rib eye steak, and eat at least one every day.
Life is good.
So is work.
Maybe next week…..
COVID Ad Nauseum
RCMP Open Letter
Corporal Richard Mehner has been designated to “mandatory leave” without pay, after 21 years of service.
It rhymes with blue but is called COVID.
The so-called constitution of Oh! Canada!, and the accompanying “Declaration of Rights and Freedoms” are, alas, only words, written on pieces of paper. Despite all the blustering, wigs and gowns, legalese, and fancy real estate, the judicial system is used as a political cudgel when misuse is required.
Or, the tenants (and elevenants) of Law (Oh! Canada!) are ignored completely by the people at the controls of government at the slightest sign of a collective hangnail.
As millions have said before us, and millions will after we depart, the government is the absolute worst solution to any problem ever.
– It is slow to respond, slow to change, and slow to stop when misdirected.
– It is criminally expensive.
– It can and does use coercion, through policing, armed forces, financial institutions, and the legal system.
– It is inefficient.
– It has a tendency to adopt “one size fits all” solutions.
– It can be, and has been, and always will be victim to abuse by
politicians political psychopaths.
The trend to fend for oneself, to do something as an instigator, as an individual (a rare commodity in the year of our birth, 1949) degenerated to “someone should do something” and is now popularly heard as “the government should do something”.
Back to Corporal Mehner.
Forced by his employer to reveal health information that is nobody’s damn business but his own, Corporal Mehner chose to go on mandatory leave, without pay.
He sent his former employer a public letter for all to see (thank you, Ms. E. Thrasher) – you can read it here.
Here’s a paragraph that captured our attention, because we are data weinies-
“At the end of 2020 I became convinced we were all being force fed a giant load of absolute bullshit. Don’t believe me? Look at world population statistics. Here’s a sample. At the end of 2018, the world population was 7,631,091,040 and that year 57,625,149 people died. This showed an overall death rate of .76%. I know some of you are shocked by this, but yes, 57 million people died of all types of causes in 2018. When you reach the end of your life, you die. At the end of 2019, the world population was 7,713,468,100 and 58,394,378 died. Naturally, because we had more people reaching the end of their lives, more people died. The death rate that year was .76%. Now let’s see what 2020 brought us. The year of the pandemic. At the end of 2020, the world population was 7,794,798,739 and 59,230,795 died. The death rate was .76%. Yes. That’s right. In the year of the deadly pandemic the world’s population grew by 81,330,639 people and the death rate did not change by even a hundredth of a percent. The media never once pulled back the lens to show this, they continued to show the narrow focus of case counts and Covid deaths. Even going so far as to change causes of death so that someone who died “with” Covid in their system was counted as someone who died “of” Covid. The Western world shut down over a disease about as deadly as the common flu. And our rights were shut down along with it.
Despite this disease having a non existant effect on the overall death rate of the world’s population the call came out for a mass vaccination. Since I was already skeptical of the pandemic, I was naturally skeptical of the need for a “vaccine”. Oh look, vaccine is in quotations again. Why am I doing that?”
Click the link, read the open letter (at eastonspectator.com ), and maybe check out the two links in the letter, too. They are:
Dr. Robert Malone
Dr. Malone’s observations summarized in a short video by the “Inspired” Ub2b channel of the same name. Who knows how long it will be available on Ub2b?
Not Joe, not me.
Dr. Malone’s voice hasn’t been silenced yet.
Kudos to the folks at Inspired for posting this short and effective video:
Quick Dick McDick
QDMcD has been missing from our Ub2b favorites population in the last few months.
He did cut back on weekly issues in September.
The number of releases may be down, but they are just as good as ever from the best ambassador for Saskatchewan and Canada we know.
Here’s his “Christmas Carol”, celebrating chores, and his Christmas salutation:
He’s back, with a report on Saskatchewan weather.
She’s a cold bastard there:
The so-called D vitamin is really a hormone.
It is involved in so many human processes that the entire set of functions is unknown.
What is known is that most folks in the world following a “modern” lifestyle have insufficient levels of vitamin D in their bodies for peak immune system viability.
Brett Weinstein (Darkhorse podcasts) interviews Gruff Davies and Linda Benskin, both experts on the subject of vitamin D.
The podcast can be heard here (Apple Podcast), or here (Amazon Music).
Joe and I gathered pertinent information listening to this conversation.
– The governments everywhere are remiss in advising their citizens that abundant levels of vitamin D are necessary for a fully functional immune system.
– The impact of COVID on populations with sufficient vitamin D levels is orders of magnitude lower than those populations lower than the recommended level.
– Although vitamin D is created in skin exposed to sunlight, the azimuth of the sun is crucial – the wrong sun elevation does NOT produce vitamin D.
– Mr. Davies suggests all people supplement for vitamin D, because most people not living an ancestral lifestyle do not have enough vitamin D to support an optimum immune system.
– All three podcasters agree that denying the citizens of the world this basic information re: vitamin D and COVID is paramount to criminal activity.
– They all agree that if the governments / Big Pharma / Big $$$ can lie and obfuscate about this, what else are they concealing?
– The best response to ANY attack on your body is a healthy immune system, which relies on proper nutrition.
One of our all time favorites.
Mom used to make a “Club House” style sandwich with pickles, tomatoes, baloney, and bacon for us.
We still get the craving, and buy a large roll once in a while.
A friend who spent time in a residential school calls it “reservation steak”:
Canned Corned Beef
Always a favorite in our diet.
We use the Herford” brand from Argentina, and the “Palm” brand from New Zealand.
For the life of us, we don’t know why everyone doesn’t eat this stuff like candy:
F600 Crew Cab
Ford didn’t build any Crew Cabs in the ’50s, did they?
Well, the answer is yes….. and no:
