I woke up with a headache I can barely think past.
In talking to friends, I find this — or other manifestations of extreme stress — are pretty much universal, and I suspect beyond the crazy lockdowns and everything the people at the top are doing to kill our country, our productivity is in the crapper because none of us can think or get things done.
I also know this is shortening my life, since auto-immune is stress activated. But then a lot of illnesses are and there are doctors who will tell you that a few years of stress will cause cancer or worse down the road.
So, that’s where we are, and there isn’t a lot we can do about it. Well, except make life as difficult as possible for those supporting the would be thief in chief — grandpa bad finger, diddles girls and makes them cry, steals countries and makes them die — because they are objectively supporting the power of fascist China (really? communist? well, it’s a distinction without a difference, because they own some companies outright and others they control with the power of an overwhelming and insane government.) and supporting their stooge who wishes to destroy America (and the rest of the world.)
To make this clearer to all of you out there, China as a culture, has never had any issues destroying batch lots of its own people in the service of tyrannical authority. And running in possession (or possessed) by communism, they produced so many bodies during the Cultural revolution that they choked the Yalu river.
If you actually read Chinese history, they are prey to a resetting virus, even dumber than the great reset. Every thousand years or so, they burn all the books, and sometimes the storytellers, and reset history. This has worked so well for them, that until the west gifted them modern technology, despite being one of the oldest civilizations in the word, they were basically living mired somewhere around ancient Babylon level, and repeating ad-nauseum. Even now, most of them ain’t a lot better off.
I’m always puzzled and amazed, when my creative friends get stars in thier eyes about how much they can sell to China. This is based PURELY off numbers, and has zero to do with ability to sell to a people who a) don’t respect copyright. So if your book should be a hit, they’ll steal it b) the majority of the population are illiterate, dirt poor peasants living in conditions that would make our ancestors three hundred years ago BLUSH.
And the idiots who want to put Bad Finger and Commie LaWhorish in charge want to submit us to that corrupt, and frankly more than mildly insane culture.
And the ones who aren’t aware of how bad that culture is, or that this is the ultimate goal of the humanity-hating party, are still idiots who refuse to or are incapable of thinking, because they want more and more centralization of power into the federal government, in a continent-spanning nation.
Let alone the fact I never understood the rationale of why people think that if you can’t trust individuals, you can trust local government, and if you can’t trust local government, you can trust the feds, it is stupid to expect a nation as large and as complex as ours to be run from a central point, and by people who frankly all belong to a class, educated in a handful of schools, most of them in the East (and a few in California) and from an economic strata so far removed from need, want or real work that most of the country is opaque to them.
To put it another way, and something that should be obvious in the wake of the flaming covidiocy, is that people who have no clue where money comes from, and who could stop working tomorrow and still live better than 90% of the world, have no business being able to tell us how we are to earn a living, or in which manner we are to live our daily lives. Because they don’t know. They have no clue. And those of them who know and have a clue, are so distanced from human beings, that they have no clue that it is a bad thing to destroy the economy in this country. According to their redistributionist beliefs, they think it will mean that the wealth gets redistributed to other countries, not that everyone will become poorer and, because we produce most of the food in the world, people will starve to death.
That’s a big issue and again the result of our “government” people coming from a handful oof universities who are in possession (or possessed by) a millenialist cult.
But more important, or at least as important is the fact that our government, with its binding bureaucracy (but really most governments, anywhere) doesn’t know anything about the rest of the country.
You know all those facts and statistics they “collect?” 90% of them are wrong and the rest are misapplied. Anyone who has worked — even peripherally — for government, in those places that collect data know that the ruling deities are “I don’t know” “not my fault” and “Cover your ass.”
This means the data collected is often wrong, the reason for disasters obscured, and fault passed all around.
The way we collect death data is fairly representative of the way we collect EVERYTHING.
So, not only is a centralized government a powerful and insane giant lurching around, but it’s a powerful and insane and BLIND giant lurching around.
People who want more of that have a death wish. And the scary part of it is they won’t even get that. They will get lingering poverty and slavery. And then every thousand years, history will get destroyed so people don’t catch on to the con game. Which is how China has done it.
And here we are, fighting against a process that started before we were born (if you look at it a certain way millennia before we were born) and trying to reverse the power structure so most of it rests on the shoulders of the individuals who will suffer the consequences if they choose wrong.
Meh. We’ve done the impossible at least once before, otherwise this country wouldn’t exist. Heck, I, myself, am if not impossible fairly improbable. Think about it. What are the chances of someone born to a non-English speaking family and only learning English in her middle teens ending up writing fiction for a living in English? And what are the chances given when and where I was born, that I would join the people of Liberty?
More importantly, though it might be survivor bias, I can tell you, both in my life and the American revolution where many times that one chance in a million came through.
Impossible only betrays a lack of imagination.
We fight. We fight on. And we fight in every way possible, and in the way most advantageous at that time. Because the alternative is literally unthinkable.
Let’s achieve the impossible, ladies and gentlemen and uncouth sons of b*tches and those who aren’t ladies at all. Let’s fight for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
And for America. Semper America.
The land of the free and the home of the brave will be so. And government that rests on the power of every individual to tell government “none of your beeswax” shall not perish from this world.
Because we say so. And we’re fairly impossible, ourselves.
