A Ship of Fools


Hope everyone is enjoying the start of Summer, a time to forget about what irritates and enjoy what God, nature (some overlap) and your hard labors provide.

In order to put aside the supreme idiocy we are living in this era of instantaneous communication by every means available, used by mass media to launch distortions, lies, slander, character assassination which then delivers political malfeasance, mayhem , corruption and utter disregard for the rule of law ( well into the arena of treason IMHO); take some time to step away from all forms of said instantaneous hideousness and take a walk away from purported civilization. We sadly are currently not “governed” by the consent of the people but by a ship of fools.

If you cannot go far, at least go to a park, or walk by a lake or river and listen to nature, if with a close friend, spouse or a dog, all to the good.

It will cleanse the soul.

A good Santana, Mozart, Herp Alpert or Mike Oldfield piece can add to the experience. None of the acid/hard/metal erstwhile screaming to be had, and I shudder to mention much of anything that has appeared in this new century or the 10 years preceding.

Doing the above and accepting for the next 90 days or so, that the fates will likely not drop any real explosive events on us, provides a good start to recharging the spirit and resting the brain. I am sure that what we are seeing of the decline of the nation will neither halt or be unduly hastened by this hiatus.

Sic Pacem, Para Bellum can be resumed thereafter (or be maintained at a low key pace).

Enjoy the Summer of 2021, likely the lull before the storm.

I like the woodcut, it summarizes Washington D.C. admirably and could apply to the USSC while the colour version appears to cover congress.

We have an airshow going on. The B-29 Fifi is here along with the P-51 Mustang Gunfighter. They’ve been flying around all day.

I joked in a text to my manager and others that the 2th Air Force was conducting an air raid on our manager’s house. (He’s near me and they flew right over him) 😉

The Puget Sound area has gotten off to a sweltering start to Summer this year. Yesterday the “official” high at Sea Tac was 97° F. However, my car was showing temps around 108° F, and my little weather station thermometer graphed a peak high of 109° F at 16:44 hrs. with a relative humidity of 36%. So pretty much a… Read more »

I moved to Canada ten years ago, and been back here for five. I still maintain a condo up there, but haven’t been there since February 2020. I hope to be able to head back up soon.

So it begins (as I predicted) Prosecutors have started the process of seeking criminal indictments against Trump and his organization. I anticipate Bren’s leap to claim that Trump himself didn’t get charged, so I will respond by saying this is the START, not the end. Also, Trump IS for all intents and purposes the Trump organization. It consists mainly of… Read more »

Of that thirty percent, about 80 percent believe the bullshit you are trying to spread. The majority of people in this country… Read more »

You are still having problems determining the difference between an opinion and a fact? Even when it plainly states it is an ‘opinion’? I guess I should be thankful you aren’t using The Hobbit as reference material… Then you went and doubled down on the use of opinions-as-fact by referencing Glenn Reynolds? SERIOUSLY? Why not Keith Olbermann, or Bill Maher?… Read more »

After waiting two years to interview former White House Counsel Don McGahn, the Democrats once again found no evidence of Russian collusion in the 2016 election. The transcript of the interview, totaling 241 pages, was made public Wednesday, and confirmed what Robert Mueller’s special counsel investigation had already found: that there was no wrongdoing by President Trump. When asked if he had… Read more »

If I were to have just come out of a coma for the past five years, and read this biased review of McGahn’s testimony, I would agree with you. I would assume that McGahn somehow had prior knowledge of what happened in the Trump campaign prior to his stint in the White House Counsel’s office. The collusion between Paul Manafort… Read more »
