We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Actually, I believe it's 6 more items containing classified documents. Given that careful wording it's not hard to believe there are a lot more actual classified documents inside those 6 items.
Dan Bongino (Citizen Free Press yesterday) has an FBI inside source that said it is likely someone flipped and ratted out old Joe. Too many documents found in too many places to be accidental finds.
Things that seem obvious.
1, Biden crime family was selling state secrets to China
2. Nobody cared until he talked about running again
3. Now the Pretorian Guard is "finding" classified docs everywhere and telling the pres
The only question is - will they let him serve out his term if he drops the reelection nonsense?
It appears to be treason. Possibly worse than Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. This has been going on for decades! Decades of him selling government secrets. He needs to be arrested. We need to take national security serious. Everyone of his lawyers and others who came near those documents over the decades needs to be placed under oath and questioned. The FBI and DOJ need to be honest with the American people or they are part of the coverup of the Biden family crimes. How many documents? What did they pertain to? Who gave them to Biden? We need to know this now!

Asia/Pacific represents the majority of the global market, while North America represents only 11%. Electric vehicles are more powerful and efficient, as well as green. The po-ta-to generation is aging out, and the market is moving rapidly to electrify.
They also burn at 4900 degrees Fahrenheit. Just the thing for a school bus full of kids. That's just fine until the four fire trucks arrive and spend hours putting it out.
The batteries also weigh around 1000 pounds typically. That adds a lot of kinetic energy to any vehicle collision. Everyone is expendable in your dystopian world.

We're talking motorcycles.
And ignoring the dangers of said batteries on a motorcycle.
Face it, right now the most practical electric vehicle for the average person is an electric bicycle.
Sure, if they live in a City.
But, why electric? Pedal powered is even more practical, No?
And they do not do well at -35 degrees Celsius which is -31 F and bloody cold in either themometer. When we hit that just before Christmas, we hibernated except spouse went out to start up the car each day of - as condintion worsened - pop on the battery trickle charges to get the battery up to speed so could start car. And, given we're in a cold climate,, we do plug in the car regularly to keep the juices flowing. Only, this time, the cold was overwhelming.
The big question I have about the Biden documents scandal is why were his lawyers cleaning up the paperwork in the first place? Destroying any evidence that might be subpoenaed by the new Republican majority in the House perhaps? We know that's how Hillary handled it - destroy all the evidence and lie, deny, obfuscate, pretend you're majorly forgetful.
The Recycling Religion
The ugly truth is that many “recyclables” sent to recycling plants are never recycled. The worst is plastic.
Even Greenpeace now says, “Plastic recycling is a dead-end street.”
'Scientific' American, and I use that term sarcastically has this in their table:
Scientific Term: "Natural Disaster"
Public Meaning: "Acts of God, caused by Nature"
Better Choice: "Human-caused Disaster"
"To inspire people, we need to tell a story not of sacrifice and deprivation but of opportunity and improvement in our lives, our health and our well-being- of humans flourishing in a post-fossil-fuel age."
That hail storm that ruined your crops was your fault.
Any questions on the Game Plan?
A 50 minute flight of a private jet releases more carbon pollution than your SUV does in an entire year. It only makes sense that if we are serious about reducing emissions that we ban all private jets immediately. But then we look at commercial air travel. They emit carbon pollution at a greater rate than do SUVs so after banning all private jets we need to ban all commercial air travel. At that point we should place a moratorium on banning things for a few years to see if this technique actually works.
Another technique worth exploiting to meet our entire countries reductions in carbon emissions is to immediately deport all non-citizens. Not only would this allow us to achieve the reduced emissions goals but it would result in lower rents and home prices and make more jobs available for our own citizens. It would also substantially reduce federal expenditures which would enable us to finally balance our budget.

Where are the trial lawyers. Every level of government and businesses that forced or coerced the vaccine should be sued for damages actual and expected over your now shortened lifetime.

The article only waves in the general direction, but doesn't make a substantive case. All vaccines have side effects, mostly mild, but sometimes more severe. Acquiring COVID without previous experience with the disease is much more likely to result in severe health complications than with the vaccine.
The real difference between us is simple. I WANT you to take every single last booster and mRNA shot. I implore you to take them all! Nobody is stopping you! I can't lie to you about your chances...but you do have my sympathies.

Horowitz: 12 new safety signals showing devastating dangers from COVID shots
FDA admits massive elevated risk for heart attacks, blood clots, and pulmonary emboli: FDA researchers published the results of a massive observational study of 30.7 million Medicare patients in 2021 and found that people who took the shot found that the shots increase risk of pulmonary embolism by 54%, acute myocardial infarction by 42%, blood clotting by 91%, and platelet disorder by 44%. The claim this is only an early warning signal and downplay the results, but they harmonize with many other surveys, studies, reporting, and an understanding of the shot’s mechanism of action.
feeblemind: Horowitz: 12 new safety signals showing devastating dangers from COVID shots
1) 17% of children experienced some cardiac symptom after the Pfizer shot
The study noted that "None of the patients needed to be admitted to hospital and all of these symptoms improved spontaneously." Incidents of significant arrhythmias and myocarditis were only 0.1%.
2) 20% spike in excess deaths in England and Wales
Excess deaths were lower for the year. They were higher in December because of an outbreak of influenza and pneumonia.
3) 0 of 1,1779 COVID hospitalizations in New South Wales were unvaccinated
2.6% of the population is unvaccinated, but 6.3% of the deaths were unvaccinated.
4) FDA admits massive elevated risk for heart attacks, blood clots, and pulmonary emboli
Only pulmonary embolism represented a valid statistical signal, and the study did not adjust for confounding variables, such as age. The researchers recommended more robust epidemiologic studies.

"Based on current voting patterns, if women didn't vote, there would never be another Democrat president.
Require voters to register, i.e. don't just send out ballots. Require in person voting with an ID, (you have to have an ID to buy spray paint at Walmart!). End ranked voting. Have two teams in two separate rooms count the ballots. That is each team counts all the ballots and in order to declare a winner both teams must come up with the same numbers. Video tape both rooms and make the video available to their candidates and the public. Put a serial number on every ballot and machine check the serial numbers for accuracy and duplicates.

The men on Davos are a tribe; and it would be impossible to understand the nature of the Great Reset without grasping the tribal nature of this enterprise. These are the most narcissistic people on the planet. Of course they know all the answers. Why else would they be presidents and billionaires? John Kerry said it best: "it's so almost extraterrestrial."
"John Kerry said it best: 'it's so almost extraterrestrial.'"
True enough. They live on another planet entirely. A whimsical place of make-believe, where "climate change" will be solved by simply getting 195 sovereign states to march in lockstep forever and a day.
Remember when Massachusetts voted in a high tax on yachts so gazillionaire John Kerry moved his $100 million yacht to Rhode Island to avoid the tax that supports the state he lives in?? That was soooooo extraterrestial of him !!
