I just found some of your comments below, and I feel I need to introduce myself.

Hello, my name is Aaron R.  My father asked my brother and I to keep an eye on this site and address any issues that might occur.  If you have an issue on the functions of this site, I will most likely be the guy who will come to address them.

I have no interest in political matters at all, so I will not be entering into any arguments here.   Dad might have enjoyed sparing with you guys, but IMHO politics is a fools game and I have no intention of playing.

If I post something here it will be to announce a site-related issue or because I am testing an issue that came up in one of the logs that are emailed to me on a daily basis.  I will try to make it blend in with the other postings here

, and unless I’ve asked for a response about a certain issue, you can consider this an ‘open thread’.

Please enjoy some music while I deal with some issues I’ve found in the logs.

 

 

 

Everybody Knows

© Leonard Cohen 1988

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died
Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows
And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows
And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows what you’ve been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it’s coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows
Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows

You mean like all the media, those “intelligence experts” and the DNC who all said the Hunter Biden laptop was ” disinformation”?

You are thinking correctly if you agree with everyone else????

BWAHAH,……No.

What’s next..the code of the schoolyard?

Get bent.

Thanks ol’ Corknick I like the fellows attitude but it has a small flaw, what if all the scientists, eminent persons in their field and so on, are paid or coereced into being part of the group think quicksand?. He does say “that you trust” but of late, that has become rather ephemeral. For my self, I have an equally… Read more »

Back in 2000, climate scientist David Viner had a very dire prediction for those living in England: Snow was going to become almost extinct there.In a viral interview with the U.K. Independent, Viner said that snow on the isles was going to be “a very rare and exciting event.”“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” Viner said. “We’re really… Read more »

Dear Young Aaron, thank you for being a diligent stand in for your father. This is a sign of respect that is to be treasured. Being likely older than your father, I can surely appreciate the idealism of youth, as I lived through it some 50+ years ago. Keep on with all your enthusiasm, but never, never totally ignore politics,… Read more »

Well then, it is simply a matter of perspective, your dad also gave me the impression of being younger, but we are both in our 70’s. Still, the thought stands with respect to good sons.,

Everybody knows about the law of supply and demand. Back to the argument I was having with DJ, or whatever he called himself at the time. The price of energy IS rising because of the law of supply and demand, NOTHING to do with greedy oil companies, or Putin, or whatever excuse Joe “Not my fault” Biden is using this… Read more »

Well, gosh darn! That kind of explains everything, dunnit? We have an excess of commie socialists in government at all levels, which means there is an excess supply, which drives down the value per unit. The obvious solution is to remove a large portion of the low value items and replace with more honest pro American workers fewer in quantity,… Read more »

Hillary Clinton approved the entire scheme to plant the false claims about Trump and so called “collusion”

It was all a lie.

2 years.

“Just read the filings they will still get him for this or for that”

TWO YEARS of a lie by a spiteful, vicious old hag who expected to be “coronated” as President..

The comments are worth more than the actual article. :Looks like our OZ friends are about to get a taste of Bidenism as formulated by Obamanism and WEFism..

…and you’d be wrong.

Stick to ‘murica, Terrapod. You’ve already demonstrated your singular lack of knowledge on Australian matters…and I am STILL waiting for your proof to the claim of “ignoring the rule of law to stay in power”

How long has it been now??

Put up..or SHUT UP.

Well young man, at your urging I have taken the time to read most of the Australian constitution with a focus on examining rights of the citizens of the country. . https://www.aph.gov.au/About_Parliament/Senate/Powers_practice_n_procedures/Constitution http://www.australianconstitutioncentre.org.au/rights.html Therefore, I accept your premise that what was done during your lock downs including the application of fines and confinement of subjects for being unruly, is apparently… Read more »

….and again, I am STILL waiting for any proof of any kind that the law was “disregarded” or “ignored” to stay in power. I mean, seriously, are you in the HABIT of making claims you cant prove? As for our constitution, well, dear Terrapod, that comes from the fact we are a Westminster style democracy as part of a greater… Read more »

More media lies Perhaps one of the most disturbing aspects of Tuesday’s killing, for those of us who live outside the US, is that Ramos walked into a store and legally bought the powerful automatic weapons used in the massacre just days after turning 18 last week. Nowhere in the US can you walk into a shop and buy automatic… Read more »

Oh and as for your “assessment” on the next four years for the Australian government, Labor control the lower house, the conservatives control the Senate.

You are wide of the mark.

Biden was the Guest of Honor at the Annapolis Naval Academy graduation. Here is what he said: At the beginning of his speech, and in an apparent effort to relate to his audience, the septuagenarian president claimed that he had been appointed to the Naval Academy in 1965, but did not go because he wanted to play football at the… Read more »
