    A wall of flowers! Gorgeous!

    • Somebody says:

      Yes, you can almost smell it!

      One of the few things I miss from having an office in DC is that there were fresh flowers everywhere. Easy to pick up something simple for a small bud vase on your desk, a bouquet for someone’s birthday or a full arrangement(s) for a retirement party.

    Three states have now declared a state of emergency over monkeypox. The numbers are surely to grow, but it is not a life threatening disease. I’d wager that more people contracted herpes than pox. I saw this coming after the first few cases were announced. They feared stigmatizing gays and so repeatedly said it is not a gay disease ( it is not, but that was how it was beginning to break outside Africa).
    Now they are saying Emergency. How can an uncomfortable/preventable disease with less than 10,000 cases be more of an emergency than fentynal which I believe took 80,000 lives last year?
    Everyone thinks gay when they hear it because each time they mentioned it they said not a gay disease. Four children now have it. What do you think people will think hearing that. I know what I thought.
    All you have to do is not have sex until the vax is available. Creepy state senator in CA keeps comparing it to AIDS. Same guy who pushed for decriminalization of sex with minors. Not children.
    This is nothing like HIV. Nobody knew what was going on then. It was a scary time. This bug is entirely preventable.
    So the three states with hitleresque governors declare emergency instead of saying just wait until you get vaxxed. I do wonder if the virus was seeded. They knew pride month was going to be huge.
    We have now faced 2 worldwide infectious diseases in 2 years. How easy to circulate. The WHO wants power. What a better way to co-opt control by watching our leaders drop the ball on this.
    I felt like something was sketchy when the first cases were announced back in February (?).
    Tin foil rant for the day. It is Tuesday.

      I think it’s a mid-term thing or maybe bigger than that. At its root is control. Covid has run its course, at least for now. People refuse to be cowed in fear by covid. So hello monkeypox, it’s exotic sounding, be afraid, be very afraid.

      Their fear mongering with covid and the power and control they gained was beyond their wildest dreams. They don’t want to lose that. We’ll probably continue to have outbreaks, mostly because we’ve always had outbreaks of various viruses. Except these will be played up and sensationalized, beware of the kangaroo cough, the mosquito born gitchy-goomy disease, H9N3R2D2 virus, since they want us to eat bugs maybe we’ll have a meat born super bug like mad cow XXtreme, poultry blinding disease (PBD), pork intestinal eating disease (PIED), seafood heart infarction trematodes (SHIT).

      You name it, one after the other. It will be similar to the color code terror warnings. Which was rarely green because we were never safe, TPTB never wanted us to feel safe and they don’t want us to feel safe now. Eventually we collectively ignored the color codes and they went the way of the Dodo bird. Why? Because terrorism ceased to exist? No, because the fear factor stopped working.

      TPTB sure eroded our liberties though, now didn’t they? They did it to protect us from terrorism, it was for our own good and we accepted it. They took a lot of our liberties to protect us from covid too and we accepted it. Funny that. Not to worry, this disease phase will only last a finite amount of time, the masses will grow weary of it. Perhaps next we’ll have something more entertaining like space aliens or zombies.

    I guess we’ll see if Pelosi gets us into war with China today.

  4. DandyTIger says:

    After China did all the saber rattling, they can’t just do nothing. I don’t think they’ll shoot anything down, but what will they do so they don’t lose face. One guess is they’ll use this “breach” as an excuse to actually take Taiwan. If so, and since they own Biden, was this an arrangement all along?

    • Miranda says:

      Well, I’m convinced that Biden at least partially goaded Putin into the Ukraine war. Why shouldn’t Pelosi get Taiwan taken?

      • Anthony says:

        Brandon is funding both sides. Spending lots of money on Russian oil and sending lots of money to Ukraine. Spending and sending to two Vlads.

    • Somebody says:

      Ding, ding, ding! You win double jeopardy Dandy! I think that’s the point of Pelosi’s trip, I’ve been calling it her Gulf of Tonkin tour.

      I do think the sick fucks in the WH believe a war is exactly what is needed to prop up this failing regime, but the American public has no appetite for war so that’s going to be a tough sale. Biden helped push Putin into Ukraine by telling Zelensky and telling Xi that the votes were there to bring Ukraine into NATO. As if Putin wasn’t listening or that Xi wouldn’t drop a dime on Biden. They tried to pull us into Ukraine, but settled for gift from billions in aid.

      China will use this visit as an excuse to invade Taiwan, which they’ll do sooner or later anyway. Maybe they don’t invade, but instead move to a blockade type situation. There are financial troubles in China, the people are restless. There are tanks in the streets in many cities, they are not lowing bank withdrawals. That’s part of the zero covid policy, lock people down and they can’t go to the bank. The CCP does not want unrest, if Xi doesn’t it get it under control they’ll eliminate him and put someone else in. Niden may do Xi a solid and bend at the knee for him, maybe even sacrifice some of our sailors.

      No matter what happens it most likely will impact us negatively, our supply chain will be screwed, the vast majority of chips come from Taiwan. Chips for cars, chips for critical infrastructure, chips for military hardware, chips for appliances, etc. If China cuts us off via sanctions, that could get uglier still.

      The neo-cons will start screaming for war. The D’s will come forward with massive aid bills and in this case supply chain or infrastructure support bills. The opportunities for graft are endless either way things go. The big guy will get his cut, Mitch the bitch his, Manchin has laid down his markers, looks like Pelosi has either set her price or is negotiating a side deal, there will be many pigs at the trough. I wonder what stocks Paul has dumped money into? That might tell us a lot.

      What a clusterfuck and we have a corrupt dementia patient in the WH

      • Somebody says:

        I hate autocorrect 😒

        Gift = grift from Ukraine aid
        Lowing = allowing bank withdrawals
        Niden = Biden, that could be on me. Fat fingers, because I’ve never seen that one nor did autocorrect try to change it as I typed it. Two out of the three are definitely autocorrect

    OMG it gets worse and worse. Is there anyone left in the dem party with 1/2 a brain and likes this country?

    • Somebody says:

      Sadly, I don’t think so. However, AOC will be knee capped by Governor Hair Gel. AOC has been a thorn in Nancy’s side, no way she let’s her screw up her Nephew’s big moment. Nancy will enjoy sliding the 🔪 in AOC’s back. AOC if anything, will become the new Bernie.

      I haven’t thought of this movie in decades. I remember thinking it was the best film I’d seen – practically ever.

    • elliesmom says:

      Free to watch on youtube

    • Mothy67 says:

      I was watching an episode of Evil today and Wallace Shawn was a guest star. How often do you see him? Twice in one day. By the way Evil is kinda fun once you get to second season. Feels almost British to me. Like Torchwood. Horror/comedy hybrid and Christine Lahti chews the scenery.

      • lateblum says:

        Love Christine Laurie❣️ Back in the day, I used to watch Chicago Hope (I think was the name of the show) weekly because she was on it.

      I’m not big on the conspiracy stuff, but the progressive movement (I mean going back a century) has been about eliminating human struggle. But struggling to accomplish a physical or mental task is vital to human development. There is an undercurrent among younger Americans of jealousy of other countries because people get free shit and don’t have negative consequences. Years ago, I wrote a blog about how “utopia” has a long-term destructive effect. https://daysofchange.wordpress.com/2016/08/25/behavioral-sink/

    on Freetvee there is a 3 piece documentary on the Burma Road. it is filmed right before the end of WW2. It is a horror show. MY God, what they went through to build the Ledo road is unbelievable. One thing that struck me was how the Chinese of that time worked with us. except for the warlord that attached our convoys and killed our soldiers that was not mentioned as China was our ally and we were trying to save their asses from the Japanese
    China must never be trusted and enabled.

    • DandyTIger says:

      I think Biden is mostly owned by China, so whatever is happening is likely arranged in some fashion. But then again, Biden may have little to do with anything any more, so who knows. I’ll predict that China will effectively take Taiwan sooner rather than later, and this will be part of the excuse. But just wild guessing.

    The episode of Tucker Today that dropped on Monday is about UFOs (UAPs).. It’s a lot of fun. If you have Fox Nation and have an hour, it’s a good palette cleanser. It’s now OK to believe. 🙂

      Birx is a confessed liar, so why would I believe anything she says. OTOH, Pence was the man in charge r/t Covid, so it would make sense. Does it seem this post is written to make it seem Birx speaking to either Pence or Kushner is something nefarious? Or am I now just as paranoid as the people I used to treat in my work?

  13. lateblum says:

    Just because . . .

    Seth is having a breakdown. In another tweet, he said 1/6ers wanted to murder Pelosi.
