Quitting — At Least For Now

After recently taking a break because of tax season, I have decided that my life is better without the ugly intrusions that active blogging demands. 

Besides, I'm sick of the doom-scrolling and the doom-saying that honest political-blogging requires. 

It's time to enjoy life rather than having a blight upon life!

I'm done — at least for now.

Musical Interlude

My best friend of some 53 years died on February 9; circumstances were such that I didn't find out until February 22. There was no better friend in the world than Carolyn! I have a terrible void in my life now. 

The selection below accurately reflects my frame of mind right now....

Train Wreck

toxic mushroom cloud over Ohio

Because Warren and I live on the Ohio River, we have been following with keen interest the ongoing story in the village of East Palestine, Ohio (What a wonderful public library they have!):

Also for your consideration:
On February 17, 2023, we read:
CINCINNATI (WXIX) - Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced Friday that a chemical plume in the Ohio River from a train derailment in East Palestine has “completely dissipated,” according to the latest testing.

“We do believe that there’s no reason to be concerned about water from the Ohio River and there’s never really been a reason to be concerned,” he said during a news conference. 

Still, out of an abundance of caution, Greater Cincinnati Water Works said Friday they will close Cincinnati water intake and temporarily switch to water reserves before the plume arrives late Saturday or early Sunday....

Do you believe all these official spokespersons who assure the people of East Palestine, Ohio, that the water and the air are safe for human consumption?

Musical Interlude

According to science (A music psychologist has said the perfect 'happy' song should be 137BPM, in a major key, with a short intro and bright tones, and four beats in every bar), this is the happiest song in the world:

For me, the above song conjures up wonderful memories of cruising in my 2000 Mustang GT convertible, especially at the beach.

The list of the ten happiest songs in the world, according to Dr. Bonshor's metric, below the fold.

How Safe Is The COVID "Vaccine"?

Image credit

Brave new world? More and more the truth about the COVID "vaccine" is looking that way: Shakespeare's use of the phrase is intended ironically, as the speaker is failing to recognise the evil nature of the island's visitors because of her innocence.  

Two videos for you to consider....
So much for the principles of the Hippocratic Oath:

...Into whatsoever houses I enter, I will enter to help the sick, and I will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm, especially from abusing the bodies of man or woman, bond or free,,,.

About those NYC employees fired for not taking the vaccine, they now have an FBI flag on their files and apparently will have to go to the back of the line for rehire (emphases mine):
Many employees fired for refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine for religious reasons will not be able to get rehired due to being assigned a “problem code” by the New York City Department of Education (DOE), a code that is also sent to the FBI, according to oral arguments made Wednesday by Alliance Defending Freedom in the case of New Yorkers for Religious Liberty v. the City of New York.

Mayor Eric Adams announced that New York City’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for city employees will end on Feb. 10 after thousands of workers were fired for declining to adhere to the rule, but stated that those workers would now be able to reapply for their positions. Alliance for Defending Freedom (ADF), a legal firm focused on protecting the First Amendment rights of Americans, pointed out during oral arguments that many former employees would not be able to get their jobs back because the DOE had marked workers who refused to comply with the mandate with a “problem code” that is also tied to their fingerprints and sent to the FBI....

So, what do you think is the truth about the COVID "vaccine"?

Canceling The Word "The"!

Theatre of the Absurd
...The plays focus largely on ideas of existentialism and express what happens when human existence lacks meaning or purpose and communication breaks down. The structure of the plays is typically a round shape, with the finishing point the same as the starting point. Logical construction and argument give way to irrational and illogical speech and to the ultimate conclusion—silence....
