It’s only cognitive dissonance if you’re cognitive

This is too beautiful to not share, and too short to excerpt and link. These rocket scientists would have everyone but the Praetorian guard disarmed. Right about directly opposite of what their “don’t shoot” posture would dictate. These are the college students… pretty much tells you all you need to know about university-level thinking today.

Doug Ducey support stricter gun-control laws. …and this accompanying image. March For Our Lives protesters demand “their lives […]

the hidden evil in bump stock bans

Trump’s Bump Stock Regulations Can Turn 500,000 Gun Owners into Felons   Please contact Pres. Donald Trump and tell him the implementation of his proposed bump stock regulations would turn 500,000 gun owners into immediate felons. You can email him, tweet at him or call him at (202)-456-1111 or (202)-456-1414.    Not a GOA member yet? We need you more than ever right now.   Illegal Bump Stock Regs to go beyond Johnson, Clinton, and Obama in Anti-Gun Reach! Dear TED, When campaigning, Donald Trump said he would respect and honor the Second Amendment.  Instead, he continues to push ahead on bump stock regulations which would turn 500,000 gun owners into felons.  And the regulations would arguably do the same […]

big thieves go for your guns

The usual suspects are at it again. We hang the petty thieves and appoint the great ones to public office – Aesop The above quotation came to my mind as these jerks toss my life savings around like pocket change, yet would eliminate the basic human right of self-defense if they get their way. The ten thousand dollar suits do nothing to cover their ugliness. The excellent article below describes that those who would have us disarmed have come up with a new way to pull that dream off. As Mr. Greenfield points out, the current crop of disarmers happen to be the same folks who have stolen 98% of the dollar’s value over the last century. That’s the […]

asparagus

One might assume I am a pessimist expecting TEOTWAWKI too soon to do any long-term projects. That one would be wrong. While I continue my drive to be prepared for Bilderberg-engineered disasters, I also recognize their schemes continue to be frustrated by events beyond their control. So I prune fruit trees, plant blueberries and build an asparagus bed as if I might get to enjoy the fruits of that labor two or more years hence. Yesterday it was blueberries. Today asparagus. On the north side of our year-round creek I put four roots each in their own discrete beds. This is much like their natural habitat. I’m thinking they may like it a lot … and reward me by populating […]

mushroom leather

I am currently taking a weekly evening class on growing oyster mushrooms. Our instructor, Chase, spent the 6 months following his oil field job layoff studying mushrooms, and experimenting with their production. He is enthusiastically passing on what he learned. There is SO MUCH about mushrooms that I did not know. Of course the rather meticulous, involved propagation is part of that, but the nature of a mushroom colony is quite different than what I imagined. The part we all see, know and eat is such a tiny element in the being. Moreover, mushrooms exist in a huge number of varieties, most of which adapt to their surroundings in surprising ways. My weekly class is zooming over the tip of […]

A Conversation on Race — Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts This is just an excerpt below. The article is worth reading. Click the link above. – Ted We often hear that we need a conversation on race. Considering that Americans are a brainwashed people living in a false history, such a conversation would resemble the one the Russians were expected to have with the British in regard to the Skripal poisoning: “Yes, we are guilty. We will pay reparations. Where would you like us to send Putin for trial?” In other words, the only acceptable race conversation in the US is one in which white people accept the accusation that they are racist and offer to make amends. Considering that the only slavery experienced by […]

sugar stupid

We like sweet. Nature did this so we would be attracted to fruit and berries. They are good for us. Where we get into trouble are with modern refining of natural sugars and commonplace availability of fruits rather than seasonal, intermittent access. Since we abandoned our hunter-gatherer existence in exchange for our grocery store cornucopia we either learn about healthy nutrition or suffer negative consequences. I am comfortable with natural sugars like real maple syrup and evaporated cane juice, but I also have developed a mental dis-attraction to sugary foods. Easy-sneezy with that awful chemically-refined sugar beet junk or any of the chemists’ sugar substitutes. But even good sugars are too readily available for our own good. While there […]

12-volt lighting

Last month in Studio wired I showed you my breakthrough getting my studio 12-volt emergency lighting operating. I accomplished a couple of refinements recently. Besides the obvious advantages of having lights regardless of power grid failures, my 12-volt LEDs provide lighting options in addition to, instead of, or in combination with the various 110-volt lights I have installed. Prior to connecting up my antique meters, I was running on a gut-feeling that I had to be real conservative in my use of the 12-volt to avoid excessive depletion of the batteries, thus shortening their lives. The meters tell me I was wrong by A LOT. While modern digital meters consume almost no energy, my antique analog meters have a […]
