compelling evidence

Around three years ago a friend was telling me about the flat Earth theory.  I didn't believe it but wanted to hear her thoughts on such an idea.  She mentioned a few things about air traffic patterns and astronauts training in swimming pools and I was a bit shocked she would even consider Earth was anything but a round planet.  I mean, if Earth was flat, our whole world view would be out the window.  Star Trek, for one small example, would go from a possible future to total bullshit in a nano second.  Star Trek is the reason we all have cell phones, computers, silicon valley, and this high tech lifestyle.  And that's just a TV show from the 60's.

The more I looked into flat Earth, the more it bothered me.  What started out as debunking FE turned into questioning my own reality.  What about the Sun and Moon and stars and planets?  What about the Klingons?  What about space travel and aliens from other planets?  What about every teacher I ever had who had a globe in their classroom?  Nah... Flat Earth is bullshit perpetuated by fringe element loonies in 18th century uniforms trolling society for attention.

But still... When I look up into the night sky and see Polaris in the same place with all the other stars moving around it in a slow procession, every night, for thousands of years, and wonder how can that possibly be if the Earth is spinning on its axis at 1,000 mph while spinning around the sun, while the sun is spinning around the galaxy.  Wouldn't the view change?

As crazy as it sounds, unless someone can explain why Polaris is stationary while Earth isn't, I'm compelled to think the Earth is flat and we never went to the moon.

Explanation?  Anyone?

Ya know, this is one of many reasons I hate Google so fuckin much.  Does anyone doubt that Google, Yahoo, and Facebook are all run by the CIA?  Does anyone think the EU is an organization devoted to the betterment of humanity?
 
Hey Google, if you're listening, suck my ass.

culling the herd

I was talking to a friend the other day and she said she needed health care to fix her condition.

Her condition happens to be a fasting blood glucose level of 237.  That's pretty fuckin high.  I didn't get into what meds were prescribed  but had tons of questions as to her diet.

"I can't drink black coffee so I add lots of skim milk and lots of raw sugar."

I can't hold myself back and tell her that raw sugar is still sugar and with a fasting blood glucose level of 237 those numbers will pivot through the roof.  Skim milk has way more lactose than heavy cream and lactose is another name for sugar.   Natural sugar is still sugar.  Duh!  I tell her that stevia is a good sugar substitute and won't spike her B/G levels.  She insists it tastes funny and it's not as natural as sugar.

"I also eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables."  And that means you're eating lots of sugar and carbs with a little fiber.  

The dialog goes back and forth until I realize this woman is in total denial that her condition is her own fault and she blames GMOs as the culprit. 

She's killing herself through stupidity, blaming GMOs instead of the natural poison she consumes.  Natural and organic may be good but arsenic is also organic and natural.

What's down is up and what's up is down.  If the FDA, the ADA, and the AMA say to do this, I'll choose to do that because those guys don't have much of a respectable track record when it comes to health.

When I finally told her she could drop her B/G numbers to normal, without meds, and lose 30 lbs in one month by eating one meal a day consisting of all the bacon and cucumbers she could eat, she said that bacon wasn't GMO free and there may be pesticides on the cucumbers.

That's when I smiled and thought to myself, "die bitch, and your little gall bladder, too."

I've totally lost my patience for stupidity and realize that the majority of human deaths are caused more by ignorance and the failed allopathic system we have in place, rather than blind chance.

This may be nature's way of culling the stupidity from the human herd.  Who am I to question such wisdom?

who's the establishment?

I'm a little confused.  Aren't the Democrats traditionally ant-establishment?  My whole life it was Democrats are for the working guy and the Republicans are for big business.  Labor unions always voted Democrat while business owners and Wall Street voted Republican.  Big business IS the establishment.  The military industrial complex IS the establishment.  The FBI, CIA, NSA, ATF, and the rest of our three letter government institutions are all members of the establishment.  All these institutions have one thing in common.  They want Trump out of office.

Why do you suppose the vast majority of the American establishment, Democrats, Republicans, union leaders, mainstream media, social platforms, teachers, students, liberals, millennials and  every other generational block are so down on Trump?

Could it be that Trump is the only president we've ever had that was voted into office by the people instead of someone selected by unknown members of the establishment?

Clearly, Trump represents the most anti-establishment president we've ever seen and the liberals are going absolutely ape-shit because of it.  The left and the right both get their news from mostly the same sources and we all have the ability to read between the lines, considering MSM is, and always has, worked for the establishment.  Can't you see we're being played? 

What's so hysterical about all this is that Donald Trump is a New York Democrat who ran on the Republican ticket because the DNC is too crooked to allow a real peoples candidate to lead the party.  (Bernie Sanders comes to mind.)
The RNC, on the other hand, follows the rules enough to allow a guy like Trump to win the nomination.  He knew this way before he tossed his hat in the ring.

To all the lefties, MSM watchers, and Trump haters out there...

Does it bother, you just a little, that being anti-Trump means you're in favor of endless wars, bleak prosperity, police state, the abolishment of lawyer-client privilege, the end of the constitution, mob rule from the top with total immunity for those "in the club" and 100% surveillance for everyone else.  Higher taxes, longer prison terms, bigger fines, more regulation, and more boots stamping on human faces with no end in sight?

Look, I've been fighting the establishment my whole life.  I know my adversary when I see it and it aint Trump.  It's the rest of the government you have to watch.

Think for one minute.  When did you decide to side with your oppressors and fight those who are fighting for your rights and freedoms?  It's not the 70's anymore. 

Who's the puppet master that has us all at each others throats?  No sane person fights in a burning house.  You've been conditioned to do this and it's time to break your imperial conditioning.  Cut the strings.  Time to wake up.



 Remember... We're all in this together.  

long lost sake

 
While trying to organize the garage to make room for thirty gallons of wine, I came across a sealed bucket of sake, buried in a pile of pails I use for ferments, molds, and anything else you need food grade buckets for. 

I made this stuff a year ago and got discouraged with its progress so I just stowed it away, as an uncompleted project, and forgot about it.

I had every intention of tossing it until I opened the bucket and realized this was the real thing.  A bucket of naturally aged sake from polished white rice made in the traditional Japanese way.  I went through a lot of trouble making this stuff.  It would be a crime to not try and salvage it.

One whiff was all it took to evoke memories of long summer days at the underwater bridge at sulfer creek, consuming vast quantities of fluids as we lounged in chest deep jacuzzi-like effervescence and wallowed in our care-free existence.  We were all jobless bohemians back then.  Barefoot and broke but we always had money for fluids, gasoline, tobacco, and other fruits of our charmed, Huck Finn existences.  The beverage of choice was sake.  It's the only drink that's best served warm and we weren't into ice chests, even when the temps matched our body temperatures.  It was the perfect drink for the circumstances and we went through cases of the stuff.

I won't get into how sake is made.  Let's just say it was the most difficult and time consuming alcohol project I attempted and I'm not eager to make a second attempt.  That said, I now have a much deeper respect for the Japanese culture.  Sake is only ONE thing they can do with rice and water.

Anyway...  I need to wait a week or so to let the isinglass clarify the sake before I bottle it so I decided to design a label.

    
I considered using Full Metal Alchemist as the icon but perished that thought and opted for Samurai Girl instead.
