This mad world

How can you think straight and make rational decisions when each and every day you hear conflicting and contradictory information from “authoritative” sources? You can’t. No one can. That’s the whole point. That’s why the powers that be are doing this.

Welcome to the secular hell of a post-truth world.

We don’t need to wear masks. No wait, now we do. Hold up, now we need to wear two masks. We can stop wearing masks now. Surprise! We need to wear masks again. Actually, it turns out masks aren’t as effective as we thought.

We just need 15 days to slow the spread. Now we need a month. Maybe a year. Never mind, we didn’t need to lockdown at all, and it caused more harm than good.

Don’t take any vaccine that Donald Trump rushed to market. You didn’t get the vaccine? Are you nuts? The vaccine is highly effective. Oops, it looks like highly vaccinated Israel is having a major outbreak. Get the vaccine or lose your job.

Are you keeping up? This is the reality of living in a post-truth world.

They want us shell-shocked with rapidly changing information overload which leads to option-paralysis and fear. When people are in a state of fear coupled with option-paralysis they are very susceptible to manipulation and easy to control.

While we are all dazed and confused, they are destroying families, small businesses and entire nations. They are rigging elections. They are botching troop withdrawals to flood Western countries with refugees. The American border is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people.

They are buying up single-family homes and pricing you out of the market. They are printing endless money and inflating your currency.

They are transferring trillions of dollars in wealth to themselves and shutting up every last voice of dissent while doing it.

All the while, you worry about a virus that statistically you have a 98% chance of surviving with the immune system God gave you.

By design, it’s exhausting and impossible to keep up with. It’s meant to drain you mentally, physically, and spiritually so that you submit to their control. Don’t.

In the post-truth world, anything goes. Chaos reigns. Those who create the chaos manifest their means of control. Do not comply. Do not give them one inch. Stand your ground. Hold the line.

The power of words

One would be hard-pressed to find a better example of leftist skullduggery and conservative naiveté than what has been done with the words “liberal” and “progressive.”

Among the quotes you’ll find elsewhere on this website — the right side if you’re using a PC — is this from Dennis Prager:

The usurpation of the word “liberal” by the left has been a catastrophe.

In spite of what you may read or hear elsewhere, there is only one sort of liberal, the classical variety. Liberals believe in freedom of speech, capitalism, nation-states, etc., traits not embraced by leftists. Quite the contrary.

I’ve had people tell me that liberalism used to mean one thing, but now it’s another. That is not true. What we have now are leftists wrapping the cloak of “liberalism,” the word, around their shoulders. Think wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Being” liberal” sounds sweet. Almost everyone wants to think of themselves as liberal because the opposite would be tight-minded, a nasty individual, and who wants to be seen that way? We all want to be liberal, right? And progressive! Who’s not for progress?

I am. You are.

So leftists have stolen and embraced these adjectives as their own, which makes perfect sense. What makes no sense whatsoever is that conservatives, nincompoops as we so often are, go along with the wordplay, the fraud, the theft.

In this six-minute video, Prager illustrates the stark differences between leftists and liberals. Do you call Nancy Pelosi and Kamala Harris liberals? If so, stop it right now. Sleepy Joe doesn’t know what he is. He reads his script, written by leftists. Not liberals.

JFK and FDR were liberals. Today, they’d be tarred and feathered by the Democrat Party.

Face of fanaticism*

Behold the stony mug of Sarah Iannarone who will face the current mayor of Portland, Oregon, in a runoff election on November 3. She is a fanatic, a supporter of the terrorist organization known as Antifa.

Give us a smile, honeybun! No?

For years, I’ve observed the United States circle the drain hole. The primary problem is that it’s a nation full of spoiled people who’ve never faced an existential threat.** With some exceptions, Americans, especially on the coasts, are self-absorbed and ignorant.

There are many upshots of this. The open-borders mindset because “all cultures are of equal value.” The embrace of diversity, which I’ve been telling you for years is a recipe for murder and mayhem. Have you listened? Sadly not.

And now you have anti-American Mohammedans walking the hallowed halls of Congress and terrorist groups handing up popular candidates for various political offices.

And plenty of nincompoops are voting for them.

Iannarone’s platform includes “housing for all,” defunding the cops, and Lord knows how many other “free” things. Iannarone says she’s an Antifan because “the Red Hats are coming after brown & black people, after Jews, after queer & trans people, and more.”

Someone forgot to tell her about Jews, that Israel is an oppressor nation.***

Vote for Trump in November even though a second term will only be jamming another ball of orange hair into that drain hole through which the nation is spinning. People like Iannarone and her ignorant ilk have plenty of Drano in their cupboards.

It’s a great time to live in Mexico.

Canuck tells the truth

CANADA HAS socialized medicine. It works well at times and at other times, it does not. Leftist Americans are fond of pointing to Canada as something to be copied, healthcare-wise. Those same people enjoy citing Sweden’s “democratic socialism” as worthy of imitation. Bernie Sanders is one of those people. He is a dim bulb.

I have addressed Sweden at least twice in the past. The first time was in 2016 when the disastrous effects of open borders was addressed. That is worth revisiting. More recently, I looked at Swedish socialism, which is a myth. You can revisit that right here.

Open borders has been a disaster for Sweden, and their socialism doesn’t exist. They did give it a relatively brief try years back till they realized their error and corrected it.

But today’s topic is healthcare, specifically Canada’s. The Canucks have one sort of problem with healthcare, and the United States has another.

As I’ve mentioned often, Mexico’s healthcare system is the superior of the three. We have a government-run system, which serves poor folks fairly well, and we  have a private system, which is excellent, but you must pay, but not nearly what you pay above the border. Our government system has worsened since the nincompoop, populist president who goes by AMLO took office 16 months ago.

And quite a few lower-income Mexicans use the private system. That’s how inexpensive it is, thanks to competitive capitalism.

AMLO vowed to give us a system like Canada’s. But what he’s given us so far is a worse government system. The private system still works nicely, however.
