And I am Thankful, Sir, for all the hours you spend in / on this Blog, shouting into the wind, hoping that someone, somewhere might hear you.

Thank You Karl (and others), have a Happy Thanksgiving.

We've tried the Soap Box, They censored that.
We've tried the Ballot Box, They stuffed that.
We've tried the Jury Box, They tamper with that.
All we have left is the Cartridge

Thanks for the great work Karl. Enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving and something single malted.

Vaccination required? Not if we leave.

As @Whiehat posited in another thread earlier, I am thankful for all the good I get, and all the bad I don't. It's really that simple.

My in laws are here (for a fucking week) and are being unbelievable pains in my ass. Yeah, I'm pissed. But, they did give me their daughter's hand some 30 years ago and have helped us out early on when we had no clue what we were doing. For that, I'm eternally grateful. Most of my family is dead, and those that aren't yet will be pretty soon. Her parents aren't going to be here forever either, so for now I just suck shit and deal with it. Alcohol helps tremendously in that regard. I know when her father passes, she is going to be an absolute basket case for several days. Not anticipating those moments at all.

@Mjeff87, good Luck with that. My wife's father passed in Dec '18 and it took 2-1/2 years and a nearly new Jaguar XF to restore her spirit. I was beginning to think it wasn't possible. Although her parents were an ABSOLUTE blessing to me the 20 years I knew them. Kinda splains how my childhood was!
Greatful for this forum, my family, surviving covid to still fight.

I posted this to Facebook today, because I think gratitude is the second most important character trait after integrity: I'd like to give thanks to the person who turned me on to Karl Deninger's Market-Ticker nearly a decade ago, and to Karl and his brilliant commenters for having led me down the rabbit hole of the fake vaxx, which made it so I never took the jab. Watch this, and weep. The chart at minute 59 says it best, but there is a whole lot more.

Thanks, Karl.

I am thankful for this blog. I have learned a lot from Karl and am amazed by his vast array of expertise and how prolific he is.

I am thankful for God and his grace. I have survived a few certain fatal near misses in my life and have been blessed more than I deserve.

I am also thankful for my family. I have a wonderful wife, 3 great, successful children who have produced (so far) five grandchildren. I am fortunate that all live within 2 hours or so and that I have an opportunity to be in their lives. Hard times are a coming and one of my primary goals is to teach, help, enable so that my children and grandchildren come out well on the other side.

MJeff...watching one of my siblings dealing with the loss of my mom has been rough...some folks pack an awful lot of emotional need into others and are lost (and occasionally cray cray)since they had never let go and become independent adults. Or other reasons that would apply in your wife's case.

I dont think there is much to do about these issues in advance.

I'm thankful for growing up in a great country, and knowing the difference between what we had then vs what we have now.

The country we HAD let a guy like Karl chose his path as an adult and pursue what he identified as the best path for him, warts and all, to a very successful destination.

This country let a very creative but only average engineer like me find my niche and create a career that supported me marrying a beautiful, second-place trophy wife who was as enthused as I to have 4 kids and then stick together and raise them through heaven and hell to adulthood (almost there with #4)...and doing so in decent fashion satisying their needs (but only occasionally their wants).

I am thankful for that.

And doing this with the freedom to assembly with friends and comrades through the whole journey...

...most of all, thankful to know...the fuckers trying to take this all away - they haven't won yet. They are really close. But no. Not yet.

To paraphrase George C Scott's Patton in the movie Patton:

Mao...Marx...Alinsky...Obama...fuck you you magnificently repugnent cucksuckinmotherfuggers.

And I know WE'RE not alone...and I'm thankful for that

I am grateful for my parents and what they did and the sacrifices they made. Hopefully I did an adequate job honoring them.

Only wish I could say more, so we leave it at that.

I am thankful to be born in a vast land that is richly blessed by natural defenses, excellent waterways, fertile farm land, a moderate climate, rich natural resources and a superb Constitution. It would be even better if God would strike down those idiots who are trying to ruin everything.

I'm thankful for a lot of things this Thanksgiving! One thing that I'm thankful for is Karl Denninger...not sure where myself and my family would be without his sage advise on numerous issues but especially so as it relates to Covid-19.

Live long and prosper my friend...

Stayed off phone yesterday. Just saw this.

I gotta say I am thankful for TG and his thoughtful missives, though there are times I disagree, your thoughts sir are till worth considering and running through the meat computer. I have been on this orb for 58 years and have always been a contrarian, if mom were alive she could tell tales, so I don't think I would have got vaxxed anyway but thanks to your info I was able to stay the course. And you open my eyes to other things as well. So thanks to you and the community here.

I have long known of the near fatal collectivism in the colonies. It is indeed a cautionary tale people need to be informed of. Shoot I ain't no genius but I see the decisions others make and want me to do likewise and I laugh or tremble in fear. I am a genius compared to some and I be derned if I follow the fools who want me to become a hive creature. I am convinced people are wearing masks. They appear confident and wealthy and successful. But their wealth is an illusion of debt as you have pointed out so well here. Their confidence is an illusion of collectivism created by the hive mind thinking they know everything because they follow the collective peer pressure. And their success is fleeting as long as .gov allows them to do what is they do and approves. New regs and laws and your success evaporates overnight. But the mask is off and I think most people have zero life skills, zero ability to be truly responsible for their actions and accept the consequences of acting wrongly. So long as the government action and government welfare bail them out they think they are ok. I think many are now afraid and may be waking up to the real tragedy of collectivism but it is too late. The elites have rigged the game and the house wins, and your support doesn't mean you win with them. They are in a ratified club and we ain't invited.

Even so I am thankful for many things and sm not worried. Sad and watchful. But not worried.

@Kennington - They know damn well the pokes don't work and are trying to do what's impossible.

Those who think the Chinese are "smart" ought to suck-start a shotgun. They're not, and the explanation that they're trying to con others into doing it too (thus destroy their economy) could have been true in 2020 but that ship has sailed (and sunk), so all that's left is that they are as stupid as they appear to be.

All airborne viruses eventually get basically everyone. That's fact and we knew it all the way back to 1918, when isolation was tried and failed. China thinks they can do it but as the last two+ years have proved, no you can't and just when you think you got away with it you get proved wrong, which repeats as many times as is necessary until you stop being stupid.

The difference between "kill" and "murder" is that murder, as a subset of kill, is undeserved by the deceased.

The colonists did not have money, of course. Merchants in London paid for their journey, but this put each of the colonists heavily into debt - a debt which they intended to pay off through their fruits in the New World and, they hoped, through the discovery of gold.

There was no gold (well, not on the east coast anyway.)

A small quibble of historical facts Sir..
Still a far cry from Helping the Pilgrams then,, though still...

Gold WAS Discovered here on the East Coast..

In 1799.. Setting off the first United States Gold Rush..

Around Little Meadow Creek here in North Carolina.

In 1799 an event occurred in the southern Piedmont that made North Carolina a very desirable place to livethe discovery of gold!

Twelve-year-old Conrad Reed was fishing in Little Meadow Creek on his familys farm in Cabarrus County one day in 1799 when he found a seventeen-pound gold nugget.

(edit) other sources have written it was being used as a door stop..

More gold was found in and along the creek, making Conrads father, John Reed, a very wealthy man. News of gold in Cabarrus County spread quickly. Soon gold was being found in neighboring counties Montgomery, Stanly, Mecklenburg, Rowan, and Unionand people anxious to find gold of their own began moving into the area.

Known then as the Potato Patch due to the size & numerous gold "Potatoes" found then..

Edit too add.

I sincerely hope everyone had a Bountiful Thanksgiving..

Especially to Our Host & His Daughter..

Our host has saved countless lives.
(In more ways than just sounding the alarms on the Clot Shots)..

For this I'm very thankful.

Common Sense & Math still prevails.

Everyone of us are ignorant, its just we specialize our ignorance on different subjects.

I have a theory on what that is. I might have to post something on it.

Think a bit about how all animals start, and what has to happen for it to work.

I'm not sure I'm right but I'd lay a pretty sizable wager on it.

I caught up on some "sudden and unexpecteds" yesterday while visiting the fam. My 1st cousin's wife -- her uncle died a month ago, but he was a big guy over 60, so could be natural causes, but her friend from grade school -- male 52 yrs old, fit, died in his sleep. No cause given.

Also my aunt's best friend and her daughter both dead, the daughter 1st and the mother a few weeks later. Both boosted into eternity.

1 BIL has serious problems, possible pancreatic cancer (not good) and also had stones in the bladder which they had to remove by a roto-rooter up the schlong. Not fun. Jabbed and boosted.

Considering my ancestor, John Alden, was on the Mayflower, I am damn thankful Bradford figured that shit out. Imagine that, folks: we've known communism doesn't work since 1621.
