For anyone hoping that there might be some adults in charge of fiscal policy in our great nation, this article will quickly disabuse you of that quaint notion.
https://news.yahoo.com/high-us-inflation-not-acceptable-001156128.html
Best line: ""I have confidence the Fed... (will) deploy their suite of tools in an appropriate way to keep the recovery on track, but also deal with the excess pressures that we have that are causing inflation," Yellen said."
'Suite of tools'?!!
More like suite of smoke and mirrors.
All they can do is directly or indirectly raise interest rates.
And just what is our current natl. debt?

You have to admire the gumption of the Left. I'd say that insane axe-swinging outweighs The Great Honkening.

You do have to admire the modern bureaucracy's ability to mess with your life by just pressing a few keystrokes. The Surveillance State combined with a cashless economy will make for interesting times.


"Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland said at Monday's news conference that banks would be able freeze personal accounts of anyone linked with the protests without any need for a court order.

Vehicle insurance of anyone involved with the demonstrations can also be suspended, she added."

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-60383385

Gotta wonder what 'involved' means. Donors? Social media meanies?

"Under the Emergencies Act, Mr. Trudeau’s police have now arrested the leaders of the trucker’s revolt, Tamara Lich and Chris Barber, on charges of “counseling to commit mischief” (O, dear…!), and seized their bank accounts, while also freezing the bank accounts of anyone who donated money to the truckers’ cause. That action led, naturally, to runs on Canada’s major banks, leading to bank shut-downs on Wednesday — d’uh… what do you expect when the authorities send the message: your money is not safe in Canada’s banks, and might not even be your money if we say it’s not?"

There won't be too many chances for mass movements to shut down the government getting into every little bit of their business, but in the meantime, The Great Honkening continues...

Well, it makes sense. Biden is ready to be put in the old folks home, Kamala is a big thumbs down to The Party, Woke is going broke and hurting the Party big time, Buttigieg is still acting like he is on paternity leave and is drawing 0-2% support among Blacks….so, ya, Hillary is the best they got.

”According to multiple accounts of the evening, Broyles became intoxicated and spoke derogatorily to some of the girls. She allegedly called one girl an “acne fucker,” which prompted the girl to leave the room in tears. Broyles allegedly called another girl a “Hispanic fucker” and another a “judgy fucker.”

At one point, Broyles allegedly vomited into a laundry basket and onto one girl’s shoes.

Fish. Any word on Walt?

Everyday I check the Sandbox for news on Walt…sometimes multiple times a day.Since Walt’s last post via Jackie, I have felt guilty for posting on Sandbox, just to leave the space open for her. Makes me wonder if she needs some free work around her place or how she is holding up. I don’t know exactly where they live and do not want to intrude on the family in their hour of testing.

Walt weighs heavy on my mind. It’s like we are all in the waiting room together. I hate waiting rooms, always have. It’s the not knowing that puts us all in the waiting room.

Barry Pruett

I spoke with Jackie today. Walt was taken off life support on Wednesday, and he passed away shortly thereafter. Our Dirt Mover's funeral will be on February 28 at 1pm at St. Patrick's Cemetery. Jackie has invited all of you to come.

Barry Pruett

She also told me that he loved all of us like brothers. I am going to miss talking to him. I will see you next Monday...

RIP Walt.

Bad news, even when expected, remains bad news.

I will endeavor to attend at St. Patrick's.

Barry Pruett

Always. I knew Walt fairly well outside of Mr. Rebane's sandbox. No doubt he was adamant about "pissing off liberals." Walt was also a really good, hard-working man who deeply loved his wife. While the first characteristic related to liberals is just plain funny, the former two characteristics related to his work ethic and his ability to love are to be deeply admired. He will be missed.

He was…..a good dude! As much as you can know someone exclusively in this kind of forum. The sort who you would want backing you up in a fight!

Vaya con Dios my friend!

https://dailycaller.com/2022/02/18/maori-people-perform-haka-dance-in-protest-of-new-zealand-covid-19-vaccine-mandates/

It is rather head scratching. New Zealand had one of the biggest lockdowns during the China Virus. Whole country locked down to outsiders. Nobody enters, the outside world locked out. The island nation became the Hermit Kingdom.

Still, very head scratching. With more sheep than people and folks scattered about in their two dozen Hobbit hobles, with that kind of extreme to the max caution, how on earth did New Zealand have cases of OniKron? Don’t know, but maybe it was something in the air.

Wait, I have a solution.

Just do what California evidently intends to do. Universally force everyone to all-electric heat/hot water/cooking and buy a couple of solar panels.

Problem solved.

"A climate scientist who formerly worked in the Clinton administration admitted to Joe Rogan that he was unwillling to debate scientists who disagreed with him about climate change"

Arguments tend to show the weakness of positions, but ego (and fear of embarrassment) strengthens them.

My gut feeling is that
a) Humans have changed the amount of energy pumped onto/into the Earth due to introducing gases into the atmosphere, cityscapes, farming, altering of habitats generally, etc. Changing external forces (sun, cosmic rays, etc.) are also at work.
b) The ability of climate scientists to predict the future is shite. They are scientists in the sense that economists are.

I'd just as soon listen to an argument between Paul Krugman and the ghost of Milton Friedman, listen to their long term predictions, and laugh my ass off when none of it came to pass.

TODAY IN RACISM: BIKE HELMETS?

“Well, Seattle is close. It has decided to repeal its bicycle helmet laws because . . . well, let Public Health Insider explain it:

Bike helmets save lives and help prevent serious injuries. A review of several published studies estimates that bike helmets provide a 63-88% reduction in the risk of head and brain injuries for people who ride bikes. As part of the movement to encourage the use of bike helmets, the King County Board of Health passed a law in 1993 requiring anyone riding a bike to wear a helmet.

However, data presented to the Board of Health has shown racist and discriminatory enforcement. Seattle Police Department data collected and analyzed by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and the Helmet Law Working Group shows that police disproportionately gave helmet law citations to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color cyclists.”

re: BillT@8:55

Obviously it's because the wypipo stole all the helmets. Because of colonization.

You do have to wonder about bike helmet laws. Getting rid of something like that is a hidden benefit to this business of make-everything-legal. It's funny to watch Crazytown governments whipsaw from getting in everybody's business (helmet law) to 'oops, we are giving tickets to our favorite people' (no helmet law). The rights and responsibilities of an adult citizen get ignored in both cases. It's all about active management of everything by people with lots and lots of really great ideas.

It's all summed up best by Nevada County Karen, Natalie Adona. "I AM OUTRAGED THAT YOU DO NOT FOLLOW MY RULES".

A fine slogan, but it would sound better in Latin.
