The End Of An Era

No, another era.

Alex Jones and Infowars has been sued into oblivion. Finally. 
Even though he claims he will fight on he likely won't be able to do that once his hidden assets are tracked.  The J 6 insurrectionists trials are ongoing and some of the major players are looking at some serious time outs. The J6 committee is wrapping up and while the evidence is obvious the eventual outcome is not. Our former prez is slowly but surely being deconstructed while our current prez keeps tottering on.

We're learning to live with COVID-19  as we have with Influenza although long term effects remain to be seen. And as alway, Military conflicts large and small abound.

The forests and range in the SW are no longer on fire and most of the high country is reopened but not in great shape. Pretty rough shape actually.  The climate problems move closer all the time but denial is fading quickly in the face of reality.

It's the midterm political season and turn out will hopefully be higher than most in the past, who knows? Regardless of how the votes go Citizens will still complain. That's what we do.

The winter garden has hundreds of Kale sprouts and the weather remains good so far - nothing survived the summer heat this year. Nothing to give away but maybe ...

All in all life rolls on and things change as they must. There's wood for the winter, pantry is full and family is healthy. No complaints.

It seems our nation is hopefully coming out of a very stressful time for a lot of reasons. There is much we can learn if we choose.

That might be a hood idea all around.

 LOL, as this forum continues to breath it's last (I've logged on most of the week to not one new post save for a couple of knots) a now at weeks end I finally have one post to read, and that as usual from our own Mr. Boomer is a steaming pile of Bull$hitt.
 He speaks about the J-6 committee with affection when all it is in reality is a mock trial being conducted by some of this country's worst enemies, a conglomerate of socialist/communist/cabal enablers who hate this country because it stands in the way of their Great Reset agenda, and their principle mission is the total destruction of the man who put a monkey wrench into their way in 2016 by defeating the Radical Lefts Wicked Witch of the New World Order and total control over the planets human species, I know, it sounds like a script right off of Rod Serling's desk, but, that's how determined, corrupt, and totally NUTs they've become.
 President Donald J Trump has to be destroyed politically, economically, and most of all as the standard bearer of American self rule along with anyone who supports the United States Constitution which according to Boomers friends in DC and across the communist world is obsolete, outdated, and stands in the way of what they call equity.
 Oh, they talk about the Political Right with distain, they call them Deplorables, Domestic Terrorist, Criminals, and traitors, they talk about democracy and forget to mention the Republic, they claim to enshrine the Constitution while they do their best to destroy it amendment by amendment, the First amendment has just about been eliminated under their administration, Boomer talks about the demise of Alex Jones and Infowars like it is a great victory, victory over what, I'm no fan of Alex Jones or his ilk, but in America he has a First amendment constitutional Right to free political speech does he not, well, not anymore, the First amendment also protects the right of the people to assemble, to air their political concerns, also gone under the Radical Left, the present administration, and the current president, if you as an American dear to speak out against the socialist takeover of this country this administration's weaponized Justice Dept. and many federal agencies will charge you with some trumped up criminal charge, freeze your assets and bankrupt you, or they may show up at your door in the middle of the night with armed agents and arrest you, or maybe they will just sue you in to oblivion like they did to Alex Jones, it's call Cancell Culture, and it's a favored weapon of the Radical communist left in this country.
 Theirs is a multi pronged agenda, they are attacking religion, anything moral, they are turning our children into America hating mindless trolls that don't even know what gender they should be, they are using our schools as teaching tools for all that is immoral and teaching our kids that they shouldn't trust or listen to their parents, and they have actually taken parents right to decide what is best for their children.
 The Second amendment is again under fire, the Radical left is so afraid of an armed society (they can't use federal military against civilians, so they are attempting to disarm The People, and they have spent billions of our tax dollars to stock pile millions of round of ammunition and hundreds of thousands of small arms to arm every gov. employee in every gov. agency to act as a new domestic police militia to put down any and all civil protests that they might view as potentially violent against their agenda.
 And the other amendments included in the US Bill of Rights that protect you and me against government overreach have also been diluted, your privacy, your papers, your assets, your right to face your accusers, even your most personal conversations are now being monitored as will this simple post, we Americans have never been closer to losing our freedoms and our country than we are right now.
 It doesn't take a genius to figure out that we are under attack economically and politically, this administration is spending us into oblivion, they have caused the inflation that is leading us into a huge recession that will cause a great depression (so says economist and world banks across the globe, even our own Fed), your speech has been squashed, your right to assemble is being hampered, you are being disarmed which will negate self rule in this country, the First amendment insures your right to assemble, to air your grievances, to worship as you please, to rear your own children as you want to, to be safe in your home and in your papers, to be free from warrantless searches, seizures and arrests.
 And what about Climate Change, Yes, it's real, No it not man made, it's just the nature of change on this planet, it's happened in the past and will happen again in the future, then what is all this Global Warming/Climate Change that Mr. Boomer continues to lament about, well it's a very cleaver plan to enlist the most successful exchange of wealth the world has ever known, People across the globe are being bilked out of trillions of their Tax dollars to support the most corrupt nations and entities in the world, and part of which is being used to rob us all of our most valuable assets, that being our Liberties and Freedoms, and our personal ability to better our lives for ourselves and our families, Pay Attention folks.

 Thank you Boomer for being a supporter and enabler for the biggest criminal enterprise of all time, I truly believe that you do what you do without malice, that you along with a whole bunch of other folks have been duped by the dark side, I can only pray that you come to your senses and open your eyes to the truth.
 

boomer:
Nice to hear from you Moe, thank you.
 
There are certainly real problems these days but it seems Citizens are increasingly coming to our senses and returning to reality in steadily growing numbers. One can hope anyway.

After more than 1 million fellow Citizens in The Homeland died from Covid related illnesses and a failed coup attempt it is good we move forward, I think. It will take some time to assess the long term effects of Covid as well as the damage to the democratic structure of our Republic.

The judgement against Alex Jones might well indicate the end of an era grounded in constant lies, vitriol and absurd conspiracy tales much as occurred when McCarthy was finally humiliated. But unfortunately, things can take some time to wind down and damage takes time to repair.

Ex President Trump will necessarily be deconstructed in addition. I can see no way around it. Of course, some Citizens will cry foul but it seems inevitable.

Even if we woke up tomorrow and all of this was a done deal we'd still have to deal with the fact 3 people in The Homeland controls more wealth than >50% of our entire population.

So it goes.

I don't know about your area but there are no firearms being confiscated in mine. Not. A. Single. One

 Good afternoon Boomer,

 I usually log in only once a day but I made an exception today because I wanted to add "In my opinion" to the end of my last post.
 You are right about Covid related deaths in this country if the numbers are to be believed, 1,060.000 to be exact, what you forgot to mention was the cause of the pandemic which was China's negligent security and Ex President Obama's collusion with Antony Fauchi to fund the development of a weaponized biological agent, again the path leads to the Radical lefts door step.
 As far as Alex Jones and his Infowars program, I can agree in part with your allegations of his shows content, but he still had a right to produce and air it much the same as any other journalistic reporting be it the New York Times, CNN, or the Enquirer under the first amendment.
 President Trump may very well be complicit in the wrong doing that the Radicals are trying to hang on him, but it's looking more like the FBI and Joe's justice dept are headed to court to answer questions about their own lies PDQ, every day that goes by seems to bring more anger and fear to the dem's new guard, things should be pretty interesting on the morning of November 4th. or there abouts.
 Let me ask you, just how many people would it take to control the greatest portion of 50% of the nation's wealth that would make you happy ?
 As far as confiscating guns go technically speaking, you're right, no guns are being confiscated on a wholesale basis, but more Blue states are banning the sale of certain guns to civilians, the state next to me has just made BB gun, pellet guns, and airsoft guns that shoot light weight plastic BB's on the list of restricted weapons as real powder burning firearms, they are also abusing the newer Red Flag laws to take civilians arms away from them, MA., CT., and RI have just banned the sale of what they deem to be assault style weapons, and made possession of high cap magazines a major crime, that stinks of Infringement in my understanding since the founders reasoned that The People should possess small arms equal to those of the military is Self Rule is to be insured.
 And why I wonder, maybe you know the answer, why has the government stock piled millions of rounds of small arms ammo and hundreds of thousands of guns to arm most all federal employees in most federal agencies when at the same time they are trying very hard to disarm the American populace ?

 And BTW Boomer, be honest, It's not really nice to hear from me, and quite frankly I doubt very much that Thank You are the words you were thinking when you posted the above. 

boomer:
Good morning Moe, thank you for the responses so far.

Despite your incorrect assumptions about hearing from you here , I do appreciate it.

It is often worth hearing a different take on things, especially these days. There have been  times when I find what you've posted both informative and interesting - as long as the subject is not political or socially oriented. Posts in these areas seem to be untethered from reality often devolving into conspiracy along with fabulist claims and conjecture.

i freely admit I don't understand why that is. I'm not offended by it but cannot help but notice and wonder how it "works"... Internal contradictions to the arguments aside.   Of course, you are hardly alone in this and in the past these traits have constituted the (claimed) majority opinion here. You just tend to be a little farther out there.



But to answer your question regarding the distribution of wealth in our society, I think a faiir day's pay for a fair day's work is not unreasonable. Any business that accepts or relies on some degree of public subsidies (as all must) that refuses to pay employees a living wage should not be chartered to do business. Citizens amassing great wealth are the basis of an oligarchy or aristocracy and as such quickly become a threat to democracy as effective control of the Commonwealth is inevitability usurped. The consolidation of essential markets has made this possible. We used to break up trusts and we used to tax Citizens back to equity but that is no longer the way.  And yes, taxes can be confiscatory and no, inflated claims of "market forces" and trustbusting are not assaults on individual private property holdings.

We are witness to fundamental changes in society. The issues raised by these changes require we come together to meet them head on. A couple of the issues we face are clearly existential in nature. To continue as we are is merely suicidal, which is an option some seem to prefer right now.

The responsibilities of Citizenship are not to be taken lightly or assumed as given. Our responsibility to those who follow is to leave our nation and world a better place. That requires dealing in fact not fantasy. There is much to be done and the clock is ticking.

In the meantime its raining again in the high desert and the winter garden is happy. So am I.

The best to you and yours.
