We had joy, we had fun, we had seasons in the sun. ...

Many good memories from 50 years ago, when I had a few "seasons in the sun" as part of my transition from teenager to adult.

For young people making that transition now:
There is no joy!
There is no fun!
There is no season in the sun!

It's not Satan that is damaging our Life, Liberty, pursuit of happiness. It's the goddamn politicians
in DC that want to rule over us.

I mentioned this [pancreatic insufficiency] to our dog's alternative veterinarian (who is not vaccinated). She is grimly focused on the many blood clots that are happening. She speculated that there could be clots in the pancreas that are affecting function.

A mortician I know simply said recently, "The clots, the clots, the clots!! Never seen anything like it!!" He also described rampant kidney failure, resulting in bodies filling up with gallons and gallons of extra fluid.

From others, I hear stories of way too many people they know having liver issues.

And then, there are the strokes, even among young people. Just heard yesterday about a local 30-something whose stroke knocked out so much of her brain that she's now a dementia patient in a nursing home.

Whether it's pancreas, kidney, brain, liver, or even gall bladder, the root problem is clots are wreaking havoc in the blood vessels that supply those organs.

Proof of the genetic damage wrought by the mRNA is the many people who have developed fast-moving, aggressive cancers in the past year, cancers that grew so fast that they were already Stage IV at diagnosis.

As for immune-system damage and the permanent damage to young men's and women's reproductive systems... I cannot bear to even think about.

I'm curious about what you guys think is realistic: I live in Czech Republic and my teenage daughter dreams of a year as an exchange student in a US high school. It would be her junior year abroad, school year 2023-24. She has her eyes on a private school in upstate New York, on the Canadian border. We're unvaxxed. What do you think is the probability she'll be able to do it?

Factors that make me skeptical she'll be able to go to the school include the price of airfare (which I expect to go up in the coming two years), and the c-19 or other policies that might make crossing borders difficult/impossible. Due to inflation, the school's tuition + room/board might also go up and become prohibitively expensive.

@Aerius I would say _A State of Disobedience_ in the nearer term. We currently lack a Balboa, a separate starter seed from the morass, so expansion from seed to juggernaut is not clear, though our swamp has the feel of the denizens of the Peace Fleet. We don't have an equivalent of the Posleen to fight as in _Watch on the Rhine_. _Caliphate_ seems prophetic for Europe.

Consider perhaps the backdrop of Ringo's _The Last Centurion_ for the coming years including for the food situation - and including the cold situation and The B***h situation - as being on-target.

.gov has their ways.
The U.S. Department of Agricultures Food and Nutrition Service announced in May it will prevent low-income students from participating in its National School Lunch Program if their public school does not adopt the administrations interpretation of Title IX, which holds that the federal civil rights laws provision against discrimination based on sex includes designations of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Spot-on Brother Ish, spot-on.

My lovely wife keeps wanting to plan vacations and buy things we don't necessarily need, and I'm here saying "I know that generator doubled in price to over $500, but damn, what if BOTH freezers lose power?" We're set for food, but 3 days without electricity would make us NOT set for food.

Next thought: Big Berkey Filter. Sigh. Too much to buy, never enough time and money, and frankly it's going to opposite direction as availability then comes into play. Sigh.

@Heartlander - I hear what you're saying about Russia, but I caution you not to look at what's going on there with too-rose-colored glasses.

My wife was born in Russia and we visited her family there in 2004. I am not at all an expert on Russia, but I experienced up close and personal the corruption and backwardness of things.

I doubt Putin himself is all that sincerely supportive of Christianity. He was a career KGB officer, after all. That being said, I can't read his heart so who knows, maybe he's a believer. Instead, I suspect that he knows religion is a useful tool to unify and give purpose to a nation. As far as I know, his policies strongly support the Russian Orthodox Church and severely discriminate against all other churches.

Have you seen the Youtube videos of the KGB defector, Yuri Bezmenov, who talks about subversion and psychological warfare? If what he says is accurate, the Russians well know the kinds of information war techniques that can weaken a society -- and Putin is taking active counter-measures, including things like expelling "5th column" Soros-funded NGOs, promoting religion and national identity, and limiting "gay indoctrination".

While I agree with numerous of Putin's domestic policies along those lines, let's not have any illusions -- he is a brutal strongman who has manipulated the constitutional order to remain in power for over 2 decades and suppresses political opposition.

In the end, I would not want to live in Russia. Coming from the West, I had a big culture shock there and it would be hard for me to live there. There is depth, richness, and beauty to the Russian culture that I cannot fathom. There is also a great deal of corruption and dysfunction. I think I read that Russia faces a major demographic winter - women there don't want kids, similar as in the West.

My wife wants us to push my son to get out of the house. He's 19 and just finished welding school. Going out into the world with no debt. I'm not so eager to send him out. Enjoying this time with him. Working on cars and talking about guns. Is he ready to go. You bet he is. The kid is smart.

My daughter is 17. We always go on vacation in the summer. She wants to go to California. My wife decided she didn't want to go. So it will be just the daughter and I. Not sure we will make it out there the way things are going. Flight cancellations, riots and the nature of things now. Just not sure how safe it will be.

I think we have a chance to turn this around but those of us that are just standing by, wanting to be left alone and minding our own business are going to have to do something. We probably will be forced to do something we don't like. Violence may be the only answer to what we're experiencing. Got ammo?

Dammit @Txwindow - you had to drop two of my favorite authors in the same post, and yeah, I've listened to both the series and stand-alone novel(s) you mention here. And, not surprisingly, after I saw the "rainbow unicorn" Ukrainian troop patch, I also thought of the Carrera series this morning.

The sad reality is there is no good way to prepare and it definitely cannot be done in half measures, as I am currently being forced to do. Anyone got a spare $250k lying around to help a brother out?

@Starrynight - non-US Citizens are still required to be fully vaxxinated to enter the U.S. and I don't personally see that changing until the current occupant of the White House is replaced. I'd say the probability is nil to non-existent unless she takes the jab, and a year of study abroad isn't worth that.

Sorry.

Just to throw out some alternative ideas you might not have thought of.
Have you considered just a regular public school?

I grew up in a rural area in SW Ontario. Our small town of 6,000 had the region's high school. I remember a few exchange students we had during the years I went there. The quality of education was quite good. And it would be much cheaper than a private school in an expensive area.

If you are set on The States then a public school in a conservative Red area might offer something similar.


Heh. Funny story. We had a small group of 3 or 4 older teenage students from Norway, I believe. They went down to our local town beach on the lake to swim and sunbathe. So they changed right out in the open. Quite the scandal in our small town at the time.

NOTHING will be worth getting the vax. Sure, currently folks such as us are limited in some areas, particularly travel. We are at war and NO Im not talking about the Ukraine thing. As lifespans shorten and reproductive capability plummets, along with all the other side effects, Pure Bloods will have some advantages, at least potentially.

And for sure, prices are going up on everything by very significant percentages. Be prepared for a minimum of 2x on all those things you mentioned in the next year plus.

Sonoran Monk - thank you so much for the recommendation. My mom decided to go the standard medical way for her shots, and she has covid now and is taking Paxlovid (so far so good, I can hope anyway), and I'm not going to try to convince her of over the counter enzymes. She is 3,000 miles away in small town New England, and there are ways that people live there, and that's her way. She has many friends and a boyfriend and a few relatives remaining, so I can't drag her out here to CA and take over her life; she is a lucid adult. But I will definitely keep that brand of enzymes in mind. I think that this is going to start coming up for more people.

Starrynight, private schools will probably be so desperate for money at that point that they will be helpful in getting you though bureaucratic blocks.

But I am still not seeing vaccination requirements go away around me. I was given a very hard time at the ER two weeks ago when I brought a 97 y.o. relative in; this part of CA still requires that people accompanying a patient to the hospital be vaccinated. The head ER nurse finally made an exception for me, so that I could spend the 8 hour wait with him. The really stupid thing was that we were practically the only people in the place wearing N95 masks; nearly all the doctors and nurses were wearing loose surgical masks. Also my local church still requires vaccinations to enter, and a local women's group that I used to do things with still requires vaccinations to join in events. The place where I volunteer still requires vaccination or weekly testing.

People are crazy and layers of crazy just keep being added and they don't get removed, except when there is an economic motive.

To be honest I'm not sure why your daughter would want to go to a private school in upstate NY. It is a wonderful part of the country if you want to live an entirely rural life, but otherwise not. The winters are unimaginable and very, very long. She might want to read some accounts of being "snowed in" before deciding.

@Kareninca, @Veeger, @Wd - thanks for your feedback. We are interested in this particular school because it is a Catholic boarding school run by an order of nuns we trust, and the price is affordable for us (for the moment). It is not a for-profit school, and the reason for going there is specific. I don't have a particular affinity for upstate NY, that's just where the school is.

It seems like the future is so unpredictable, I am telling my daughter honestly, "I don't know if we'll be able to travel to the US in 2023." At the same time, I don't want to crush her hopes.

Again, the main unpredictable things seem to be prices (e.g. plane tickets for travel) and "public health" restrictions. No way are we getting vaxxed for this or anything else. I've heard NY State has been one of the craziest in the whole country. So, even if we get into the country and can afford the school -- will the governor issue a lockdown or close schools during the school year? And I'll be in Europe and I can't go pick her up? So the issues are both financial (inflation) and bureaucratic (what stupid rules/policies might come up).

I got hooked on Matt Bracken's "Enemies" series and then read several (maybe all) of his other works. One was this short story:

The gist is back-room political monsters (that are trying to control the country by murder and force) get justice. Probably just wishful thinking.

No one ever wants to see their kids disappointed. Now's the time to prepare them for disappointments in the future however. I understand. My wife has always been a proponent of the following solution.

Always look for the next right answer


It builds resilience and reduces time focused on the pain of disappointment while offering hope going forward. Because, there IS always another right answer.

Yep, I would not want to live in Russia, no argument there. An acquaintance's Russia-born music teacher has shared that when she calls her parents in Russia, they have to be careful what they say, as anything negative against the government could get them arrested and possibly jailed.

But I have long pondered these things, and have concluded that the satanic, black-hole NIHILISM of the Schwab/Soros crowd -- including the plans to genetically and digitally (with chips implanted in our brains) transform human beings themselves into a different species -- is not only a quantitatively different but a qualitatively different form of evil never before seen in all of human history. And it dwarfs any evil in Russia by comparison.

I have hopes that God Himself will intervene to stop the "transhumanists," but in the meantime, yes, I freely admit, I'm putting my strictly-human hopes in the very flawed man, Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. If he's evil, at least it's the "old-fashioned," Mafia-boss style of evil that has been with us for millennia. I really do believe that the designs of the Schwab/Harari cabal represent something new under the sun. There are no words for the horror of it.

China is the only other force on earth that is as evil. Chinese biotechnologists more than 30 years ago were already trying to develop human-ape chimeras -- transgenic creatures, a hybrid species, that could be used as warriors and slave labor. As far as I know, that has not come to pass, but they were working on it, just as they have been working on cloning human beings. China's mentality is as evil and alien as that of the Schwab cabal, and I don't care who calls me racist for saying it. China scares the bejabbers out of me. And anyone who sees the mass prison that Shanghai has become should be terrified as well. I recognize Chinese individuals as fellow human beings created by God in His image and likeness, but their regime, perhaps even their society, is INHUMAN. In all the millennia of Chinese history, to my knowledge, that culture has never had respect for individual human life; the concept does not even exist. (I welcome correction if I am wrong.)

It is disturbing and tragic that Russia has been driven into China's arms. But let's face it, WE DID THAT. "We" meaning the U.S. and its puppets. The Cold War never ended for the War Uniparty, and the ferocious, unceasing demonization of Russia has been going on since Putin broke up the 1990s orgy of Russia-looting that Yeltsin enabled. But the fatal blow was when Hillary Clinton and her "Russiagate" minions made damn sure that Donald Trump would be prevented from pursuing his wise, common-sense plan to ally America with Russia in common cause against China.

The War Uniparty has driven a desperate Russia-- which has to look out for its own survival, after all, just like any other country -- into closer entanglement with China.

I speculate that Putin, who does everything he can to encourage his people's return to a vigorous Russian Orthodoxy, is hoping that in the long-term cultural confrontation with China, a deeply religious Russia will win out over the Godless, heartless, soulless, alien, cold, inhuman atheism of China.

In the meantime, Putin is almost alone among world leaders in fighting the Soros/Schwab transhumanist New World Order cabal. So, for all his flaws, yep, he's my guy. And as for his years in the KGB, fine by me. Look at who he's up against. I want my champion against those monsters to be savvy, discreet, devious, and a total hard-ass.
