Sunday Rant – 2923

PN:

Joe’s Comment – It has been a fine week.  Lots of interesting projects (one of them is a ’52 Ford owned by Gary M. here for brakes and fuel pump).  Lots of problems solved.  The Summer is wonderful so far.  All is good in Droveria and it’s inhabitants.
Ireland (2000 Taurus) was getting 20 miles/Imperial gallon but had a P0306 code – misfire cylinder 6.  Investigation discovered an NGK plug with a broken ceramic around the center electrode.  A trip to Merritt today returned 33 miles/Imperial gallon.  Fantastic!  The Lincoln Town Car is getting attention too.
A renovation of the upstairs bathroom is in the cards this week.
The consequence is not too much time for the Internet, ergo not too much content in this week’s SS, with the same prospect next week.
Go outside and play in the Summer is my motto.

Opinion

Elephant in the Room
Here’s a recent cartoon by political cartoonist Ben Garrison –
Here is a meme from an Indian newsfeed –

Sad and unfortunate form of child abuse.
Our thoughts on the subject are mixed.
The child is an innocent.
The mother, the father, the family….. an unfortunate amalgamation of power, money, ambition, and lack of moral compass.
Hey, it happens.
Joe and I question why in the world Ms. Roberts would want the Biden name for her child?  Outside the $$$ that might be reaped, it isn’t love (we speculate with confidence), it isn’t valor, it isn’t honor (none among thieves), it certainly isn’t mercy.  Maybe it is to be notorious/famous/somebody for that brief “15 minutes of fame” so many seem to seek.
Maybe it is a variant of the old adage “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.”
There are copious pictures of Navy Jean all over the Internet, for this is juicy grist for the social media mill.
Joe and I agree to not include her picture: leave the child be a child.
The entire sad, unfortunate mess stinks to high heaven.
Young Ms. Navy seems to be normal from the pictures posted on the Internet.
Requisite number of toes and fingers, etc.  Too bad she will never have a childhood free of adult foolishness.
But then, what child does?
As for the adults, there is a meme that describes our feelings –

Canadiana

Quick Dick McDick
QDMcD gives a cooking lesson.
The best ambassador Saskatchewan ever had!
Joe and I wouldn’t eat these burgers – too much carb and sugar, but QDMcD certainly supports his local / provincial fellow agricultural producers.
That is what Joe and I approve.
Just keep it high fat, low carb and we’re in!:

 

Sports

Abbey Steiner
Joe and I don’t pay much attention to sports of any sort.
We were always more interested in playing than watching.
When we stopped playing our interest dwindled.
That said, we are fascinated with Ms. Steiner’s gift.
Joe says people comment on her unique arm movement when she runs, but watch her legs – she is cycling faster than her competition.
We’ve been watching her progress for a couple of years now.
She is a terrific athlete to watch:

 

Health

The Existence of Viruses
Dr. Samantha Bailey has been challenging the existence of viruses as the cause of certain illness for years.
The evidence she brings is compelling.
Yet the Holy Grail of virology is seldom questioned as an option to healing or preventing disease – it is often the mandatory go-to.  Newborns are vaccinated with multiple courses of various concoctions.
In this video, she discusses the book “Toxicology vs Virology – Rockefeller Institute and the Criminal Polio Fraud” written by F. William Engdahl.
What to make of this information Dr. Bailey (and many others) presents?
Joe and I are growing more suspicious daily, weekly, monthly, yearly, decadely.
If we make it to 100, centuryaly, too.
Hmm…..
The video was taken down from Ub2b for whatever BS reason.
The video is available at Odyssey; a link here.
We tried to embed the video via Odyssey’s “share” facility, but it may not play properly (below).  If so, use the link above.
Don’t you feel safe, having so many institutions and their fearless heroes save you from seeing or hearing information?  After all, if there were a public debate, someone might prove something or make a valid deduction that might change the “everyone knows that” mantra.
Joe and I just love it!
Safe in the arms of larcenous scoundrels…..
Or not.
The body of knowledge purported to be truthful regarding medicine needs a total unbiased review and re-write.
What are the chances?:  (Here the video from Odyssey should be….. but isn’t)

As a side note, you might find the work of F. William Engdahl interesting.
His website is here.
Joe and I found his article “Zero Carbon Green Agenda Is Impossible in All Respects” to be akin to our own analysis.  Not to advance an “echo chamber” mentality, but he makes his case in a logical and cogent argument.  We are not as convinced of his conclusion that the “powers that be” are engineering a forced population decrease of the world, but his materials analysis is good with us.
Out of curiosity, we did a Ub2b search for F. William Engdahl.  There were videos, but they were old and dated – over a decade ago.
On Rumble there is a large body of video re: F. William Engdahl.
Joe and I aren’t telling anyone what they should believe.
We use Ub2b for entertainment only.  We watch “Shorts” of people jumping off of cliffs into ponds.  A metaphor, so to speak.  Rumble is much more “hands free”.
Just saying…..

 

Technology

Rear Admiral Grace Hopper
The early development of the digital computer theory into working machinery involved a number of unsung heroes and heroines.
Grace Hopper was instrumental in developing COBOL, and she created one of the first compiler interfaces, enabling the use of the English language to interface with machine language.
The lecture below has poor video quality.  It is from 1981.
She had a great sense of humor and a passion for her students that exceeded her love of computing.
Joe says she was a colossus – a woman in a (at the time) predominantly male career.
Well worth the time to watch:

 

POLITICS, POLITICIANS, WACKJOBBERY, HUMOROUS, STUPID

SUNDAY SERMON

This week’s sermon is a Jordan Peterson discussion with Robert Bryce, author of the book “A Question of Power: Electricity and the Wealth of Nations”.
The path to reducing poverty worldwide is dependent on energy.
The conversation traverses the idiocy of the progressive left in terms of energy management to the most advanced technologies being developed to solve the energy problem.
More energy not less is good.
More nuclear not less is gooder.
Abandon solar and wind farming at commercial and industrial scales is goodest.
And let the so-called “fossil fuels” flow!
A passionate discussion with lots of argument:

WEATHER (OR NOT)

This week in Vernon BC the weather was fabulous!
Which makes everything you do fabulouser!
The sun has been shining.
The rain happened for one day to wet things down.
The wind has behaved.
The clouds, although capricious and unpredictable, were too few to block the sunny goodness.
In fact, too hot for mosquitos and bugs!
High 30s was the norm (except the one rainy day).
Only one day and night of smoke from forest fires.
And every second vehicle is sporting an Alberta license plate.
All in all, a great example of Summer in the Okanagan.
This is the life!
