Sunday Rant – 0424


Joe’s Comment – What a week!
The American’s are leaving Iraq: will it be similar to the way they left Afghanistan?
The Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, has had enough of the Feds, found a reason to act (in the Constitution), stopped the unholy “immigration” over the Texas border, and is now facing down Joe Biden’s clown show.  Not a good look.
A few weeks ago the BC government has added fentanyl to the list of “look the other way” appeasements to the weak addicted citizens in our midst, instead of institutionalizing the poor bastards.  Great choice BC!  Killing them is better than helping them.  Look how much money you will save!
The WEF met and the only good that came out of that extravaganza was high class prostitutes / courtesans / sex workers made a hay wagon full of $$$ (and so they should – free enterprise).
There is much more to wonder and shake yer head about – winter madness?
Hell, the best thing about last week was the weather; pissy snowy cold winter!
Good grief…..
A few highlights including Tucker Carlson speaking in Calgary and Edmonton cheered me up.  There is change coming.  Whether it will be for the better or not remains to be determined.
The reign of Obambi and Obiden has brought America (and hence the world) to the edge of a precipice.  Whether sanity will prevail is NOT a given.  The natural and usual division between people that was de jour in the past is now described in terms of right / wrong and good / bad.  The further division of people along the fault lines of whatever differences that can be observed or defined, continues.
I say let the days speed by.  Fair weather and sunny skies will improve dispositions.  Remember a sunny summer’s day driving a Triumph Bonneville on a country road –
Now doesn’t that feel better?
Bring it on, 2024…..


Tucker Carlson
On January 24th, Tucker Carlson, Jordan Peterson, and Danielle Smith addressed an audience in Calgary, and in Edmonton.
During the week, we were able to find most of the presentations / discussions on various platforms.
A Thunderclap Newman song is in order.  There is, indeed, something in the air.
The pustulous boil called COVID was lanced: all “official” entities stank in their response.  The truth is coming out.  Those who held positions of responsibility and trust have betrayed those who trusted.  There is no remedy.
There is a change approaching, but whether a change for truth and beauty or a change for evil and chaos is unknown.
Here is some hopeful watching.  Both Calgary and Edmonton crowds are enthusiastic, energized, and dare we say focused.
Joe says there are signs of a great year everywhere, if you know where to look:

Tucker also addressed the crowd all by his own self:

Finally, Tucker addresses the crowd in Edmonton, and participates in a panel discussion with Jordan Peterson, and Conrad Black, who participates while serving as moderator.  Age before beauty?
Jordan Peterson is making enemies.  Conrad’s experience and knowledge are comforting.  Tucker is Tucker.
Joe and I had a smile, a smirk, or an outright snort all the way through.
Fancy grapefruit!  Real Canadians raising a stink!  Who could have predicted such things?
So far Castro’s boy hasn’t declared an emergency.  Joe says give him a few days:

Of course, the entire brouhaha might be a distraction.  Remember “Q” during the run-up to the Trump election?  All bogus.  Surely we won’t fall for the same gag twice.
Joe says not necessarily so.  What better way to warn everyone than song?:



The Culture

Dr. Jordan Peterson
The Ontario Psycho Kangaroo Court (aka College of Psychologists of Ontario) condemned Dr. Peterson to “re-education” propaganda in order to keep his license to practice psychiatry.  His response was to appeal the “verdict” to another authority.  His appeal was denied.  The last and only recourse is the Supreme Court of Canada.
In this video, Dr. Peterson talks about the situation with his daughter Mikhaila.
Joe and I enjoyed this immensely!
His views on the condition of politics in Canada, the fight for his professional status, the changes he sees coming for The World©, and his health are all in the mix.  We haven’t enjoyed Dr. Peterson’s perspective any better than this video:


Islam Bodes Hatred
Joe and I are big fans of Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) and of Andrew Klavan.
Imagine our delight in viewing a conversation between two good guys!
Or don’t…. your imagination is yours alone.
Our first inclusion of Robert Spencer / Jihad Watch in our ranting over the years was Sunday Rant – 3313.
In this interview, the “third rail” problem with Islam is made evident – those adherents to the violent murderous genocidal interpretation of Islamic teaching is fully supported in their foundation document, which is purportedly “the last and perfect word of doG”.  The Quran, the Sunnah(s), and the Hadith(s) all support and promote such evil.
A discussion and a reminder that evil never sleeps:


Brendan Kavanagh
Mr. Kavanagh has a very popular (2.2M subscribers, including Joe and I) Ub2b channel.
His moniker is Dr. K Boogie Woogie.
He resides in England.
A lot of his content is playing a “public space” piano and recording the interaction between “the public” and himself.
Joe and I have been watching (and admiring) Dr. K for years.
We are posting this particular video for it’s provocative content.
As a point of interest, the piano in questioned used to belong to Elton John.
It seems some visitors from China don’t know much about British culture.
The bashful diminutive Chinese woman that Brendan engages in conversation is unaware of the meaning of “public space” as enjoyed in the UK.
She is carrying a Chinese flag.
Things go along until an impasse is reached – the Chinese speaker insists that she and her group have the right to NOT be recorded in a public space.
Brennan tries to enlighten her.  Then he points out (literally) that she is carrying a Chinese flag, which he calls a communist flag.  Brendan touches the flag to emphasize his statement.
Enter The Dragon (breath)!!!
A male member (is that racist or sexist?) of the Chinese party starts shouting, including shouting over everything Brendan is trying to say, accusing him of accosting his female accomplice, denigrating the Chinese flag, and (of course!) RACIST!!!
Mr. Dragon breath threatens to call the police.
Brennan encourages him to do so.
Hilarity ensues when the coppers arrive.
What follows is more akin to Keystone Cops than Nazi Brown Shirts.
The female police person also wants to not be recorded in a public place!
Brendan points out that his video evidence exonerates the “touchy-feely” accusation, and that the female police person is also recording with her body cam….
The Chinese expedition and the police form a scrum off to the side while Brendan continues recording and playing the piano.
Here is the video “evidence”.  Brendan has over 2,000 Ub2b videos available on line.  This video starts “normally”, i.e., sit at the piano, start playing, and see what happens.  This video has precipitated some controversy (more below):

The above video has gone “viral”, using the parlance de jour.  What happens when different cultures touch at a most basic level?  Despite what style of governance is at the head of a culture or ethnicity or self identified group, the telling moment is when individuals of each collective make contact.  Perhaps the above was a loss of virginity for all participants.
Following is a segment about the incident on the BBC show “The Independent Republic of Mike Graham”.  For some reason the CCP party(ies) were not in attendance:

But wait!
There’s more…..
As of Tuesday morning (23 January 2024), the piano Brendan was playing, donated to the St. Pancras train station in London by Elton John, has been cordoned off.  An update from Brendan:

As of Sunday evening the furor continues.  This will be good for Brendan Kavanaugh.  Joe and I hope the Chinese folks don’t get “disappeared” by the CCP….


Ivor Cummins
Mr. Cummins delivers the goods about a proper human diet.
What caught our attention is that Ivor arrived at the high fat low carb solution via a different path than the folks Joe and I have been following.
He stresses eating properly, getting exercise, and supplementing as required.
In the following video presentation, Mr. Cummins includes the “Tufts University Food Compass”.  We include it here as an object of ridicule –
WTF?  Whose dick do they think they are pulling?  Watermelon is sugar water.  Kale has no bio-absorbable nutrients worth chewing.  Ground beef, eggs, and cheese are worse for you than chocolate covered almonds?
This is evil.
Joe and I suspect that the likely suspect behind this laughable chart is the Seventh Day Adventist Church – purveyors of vegetarianism.
It is even worse than the government approved “food pyramid” that sucked us all in when we were young, naive, and not paying attention.  We now know what that brought to us conscientious healthy eaters –
Watching Ivor detail the history of his path to health, we noted several important themes.  Your health is your business; the government and the medical authorities work for you.  The “experts” may not be as expert as you would expect.  Be from Missouri (the “show me” state) – if you can’t explain something to me in easy to understand simple terms, perhaps you don’t understand yourself.
A short to the point video that Joe and I highly recommend:

Dr. Shawn Baker, Dr. Georgia Ede
What is the “perfect food” for yer brain?
That is, what energy source is the absolute best for brain function?
Some say ketones do the job better than anything else.
Joe and I think Dr. Ede knows the facts:


Joe’s Garage

Joe Calzaghe
This is a video about boxing.
Joe and I aren’t fans of the sport or fan boys of any particular fighter.  Gotta thank Steve C. and George F. for that awakening.  Those two clowns “demonstrated boxing” with us.  We came to across the room.  Hello?  Is that you mom?
We think Joe Calzaghe is a real life Rocky.  47 wins, no loses.  For 10 years, he won every belt he pursued.  His dad was his trainer – very unorthodox, very successful.  C’est magnifique!
We watched every minute, and enjoyed what we saw.
What in the world will we watch next?:


What is entropy?
According to the title of the video, we probably have the concept wrong, or slightly bent.
Joe says in the winter months our entropy is high; our work output low.
That pretty well says it all:



Recently the BC government demonstrated just how insane the bleeding heart progressive movement behaves.
In all their wisdom, they’ve made the scourage of the West legal.
People in BC are no longer breaking the law if in possession of fentanyl.
Joe and I shake our head in sorrow.  Is there a movement to kill Canadian kids?
The following video from The Institute of Human Anatomy explains why fentanyl is deadly.  BC, are you listening?:


This week in Vernon BC the weather actually followed the forecast within a day or so.
It became mild again.
We got more snow.
The last few days the overnight temperature did NOT freeze!
Today (Sunday) is the 28th of January.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have escaped the first month of Winter with only a few excursions into double digit negative territory.
Although our natural gas usage was more than last year this time, this is wonderful news to Joe and me.

The worst winter month by all measure and experience in our life has been the harridan, the strumpet, the virago (aka February).  In a few days, Wednesday to be exact, we will enter harpy territory.
The forecast is for mild weather for the first week of the termagant month.
Joe and I have never been more adamant in believing in the weather man!
And why not?
What is the price to pay when believing in a fabulously pleasant outcome vs stressing over a possible catastrophic event?
Too much of the wrong stress ain’t the way to live forever.
After all, what’s the worst that could happen?

p.s.  We will feature Ramirez for another year –
