Sunday Rant – 2623


Joe’s Comments – Well, it has been another week.  Poor weather for Summer.  Disruption of outdoor projects because of rain.  The very rare occurrence of the house furnace coming on after the middle of June!!!!!!  More than once, on more than one day.  I don’t know whether to say sheesh!, or WTF?
This rant is half way through the year.  The Summer Solstice was Wednesday.
And the furnace just has to bring my fantasy of a hot summer crashing down….
Last week my 1999 Lincoln Town Car was pissing me off with stupid engineering “solutions”, i.e., placement of shock absorbers on the rear of the car.  Today, the following Sunday, I was able to move the car with the new springs and shocks installed after some legendary cursing and effort.  A bastard job installing the shocks.  I made a special wrench (about 12 inches long) in order to turn the shock upper securing nuts from a distance.  So far, so far.  Next is replacing the fuel pump and resolving the non-miss of number six cylinder – it is not contributing any power, but doesn’t throw a code when reading the DTCs.
This week some great information about the COVID atrocity.
Some information about proper nutrition.
Some other interesting items found on rainy days…..


North American Migration
The following video is very thought provoking.
The ebb and flow of “climate” (which is the delta of “weather”), has had an incredible influence on the existence of life on earth.
If Joe and I are not misinterpreting the presentation, human life has been one hell of a struggle in the past.
No sign that “man vs the elements” will ever be insignificant:

The Life and Times of Victor Davis Hansen
Joe and I refer to VDH as the historian of record.
The following interview by Peter Robinson of the Heritage Foundation delves into Mr. Hansen’s personal history as a 5th generation farmer in the California interior.
It is also a testimony of the demographic changes that have denigrated California over the last 80 years.
Hard times for VHD and the sun shine state:



Tucker Carlson
Joe and I don’t use Twitter.
We waste enough time as it is pursuing information not relevant to our “lot in life”.  If we had a Twitter account we might disappear for hours, nay, days into the well of “The Culture”.
Our appreciation of Tucker Carlson extends way back to the early ’00s.
When he was surreptitiously “disappeared” from the Fox News line-up, Joe and I wondered (as did millions of other folks) what up with that?  (That there is my attempt at ebonics – my cultural appropriation for the day).
From all appearances, the war is on.  Tucker Carlson is a spokesperson for a goodly portion of “We The People”, and Fox News is showing its true colors – a front for a money grubbing cartel.
Defying a “cease and desist” order from Fox News, Mr. Carlson is facing a legal battle of some import with his former employer.  Millions of dollars.  Millions of viewers.  Beaucoup de political shenanigans.
Mr. Carlson continues his pointed and perfect political punditry from the Twitter platform.
Good luck, Tucker!
This clip is from Benny Johnson’s Ub2b channel (as we said above, we don’t Twitter):


COVID Origin
Sometimes the simplest explanation is also the correct explanation.
Sometimes the most obvious suspicion is also the fact.
Unlike the political mumbo-jumbo that passes for “fact”, there is an objective criteria for actual fact, ergo truth.  The scientific method is exactly responsible for determining truth.  It is NOT a political instrument or tool.
Joe would like to make it clear for the umpteenth time: if you peek under doG’s skirt you might see something you are not prepared to survive.
Another way to say it is “Fuck around and find out”.
Joe and I are vexed by fanatical ideologists who imperil the sum and total of humanity while pursuing their selfish interest(s).  Consciously intended or not, adverse effects of global magnitude are a serious problem, if only because global leadership is an oxymoron.  The following video seems conclusive to us:

COVID Is Genocide
The following video of Dr. David Martin is from a presentation he made to the European Parliament – International COVID Summit on May 28th, 2023.
If there was any ambiguity about the five Ws regarding the origin and intention of COVID-19, this speech leaves no questions unanswered.
The new question is when will justice be met on the perpetrators?
Joe and I have very little hope it will happen in our lifetime:

The above video is on Ub2b.  Joe and I have no faith that the video will last on that platform.
We feel this is such an important video that we found it on Rumble and will also post it to this rant.
There are evil people planning malevolent events that will affect the entire world.
According to Dr. Martin, this virus nastiness has been in the works in one form or another since the ’60s.
Joe and I are waiting for the price of a one-way ticket to Mars to drop to our budget reality.
The United States has the bloodiest hands of all:


Dr. Elizabeth Bright
In this video Dr. Bright goes over the benefits of correcting your health with the carnivore / ketosis approach.  She talks of the endocrine system, thyroid function, glandular function in general, adrenal function, fight or flight vs proper nutrition, fat/protein ratios, cortisol, and her personal diet.
Joe and I have been carnivore eaters for 5 years in July.
No medications, no disabilities, no illness, no loss of motility at the macro or the micro level.  It may be a coincidence, but we think this way of eating is very healthy and healing.  We reckon to continue:


Joe’s Garage

Ingenuity and Perseverance
The helicopter Ingenuity was delivered to Mars in 2021.  It was designed as a short term demonstration (1 month test flying on another planet).
Ingenuity hitched a ride on Perseverance.
Both machines are still operating over two years later.
The following short video is an update on their viability.
Joe wonders what our “flat earth” friends think of the whole adventure.
We can hear the cognitive dissonance from our basement bunker!:



This week, a long overdue interview with Ms. Tamara Lich.
Ms. Lich, if you remember, is the person the Turdeau government decided to persecute and prosecute to the maximum during the trucker protest in Ottawa.
She spent time in jail, had her banking interests and assets seized, went to trial, and to this day lives under various punitive legal restrictions.
She is interviewed by Jordan and Tammy Peterson.
All of these people are humanists.
Finally, a chance to hear what Tamara Lich did and said.
Joe and I admire and appreciate a good ideology when we see one.
We’ve been alive long enough to know that Yogi Berra was spot on when he said “In theory there is no difference between theory and practice.  But in practice, there is.”
If there is a continuum that progresses from “evil” all the way past good to “saintly”, Ms. Lich has a faint outline of a halo over her head.
Mr. Turdeau has a lovely head of hair covering his horns.
Thanks to the Peterson’s for a very personalized interview of a Canadian hero:


Monday – the furnace started at 4:30 a.m. and cut in all morning!  3 days until Summer!  WTF?
Tuesday – chilly but the furnace did not engage.
Wednesday – like Monday with the furnace.  A half dozen cycles.  A cold June.
Thursday – the furnace came on at 7:07 a.m.  What a way to welcome the first day of Summer!
Friday –  no furnace today.  Das ist good.
Saturday – maybe I can shut the furnace off; no furnace again until the inevitable arrival of Autumn.  Will that be in September, or an early bird in August?
Sunday – chilly but no furnace action.
So much for global warming…..
Rain Monday and Tuesday.
Some sun on Wednesday and some rain, too.
Joe isn’t a happy camper.
Or a happy Vernonite, either.
He constantly whines that we moved here because of the weather.
He is talking heresy – maybe time to sell and move…..
There’s the rub.
Move to where?
Maybe Australia.  We would feel quite comfortable in a former penal colony.
We do have dark(er) moments of fantasy swashbuckling and flying the skull and crossed bones.
However, the indigenous flora and fauna down under are quite another matter –
Five more days until July.
Joe and I don’t ever dream of a white Christmas.
We do dream of hot sunny weather.
Alas, dreaming doesn’t get it done…..
