u should give it another go. very truthful bout how the UN or TPTB have infiltrated our country. the only thing separating the good from the bad guys is someone saying which 1 we are.

 Quoting: JAZZz50


I think the line between "good guys" and "bad guys" is extremely blurry these days, especially within the US. Plus, have you ever heard a dictator refer to themselves as a "bad guy?" Putin? Xi? Kim Jong Un? Hussein? Gaddafi? Hitler? Mussolini? Napolean? King George?

Nope. EVERYBODY thinks/says they're the "good guy" in any conflict, so someone telling me they are means fuck all. The only thing I'll allow to tell me the difference is my own intuition and personal moral compass.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
Nice to see the sense of community here. In answer to the question’what is it?’ I would suggest incoming cosmic gamma rays which are doing a ‘sorting’ process in the sense that weak spots are exposed and made weaker, while that which is of higher vibration is strengtned. Deaths will generally increase as a result. What to do? Get our physical and spiritual houses in order.
i'll try to take a look at that ,might b tomorrow. if vax isn't causing the excess deaths, what is? UK is over 20% excess deaths for 1st week of this year.

RIFF, any chance u want to move that post to the CC2 thread? would b interesting to hear the teams take on this.

your rule #1 is very true. 1 of many issues we have with today's science.

Nearly 220 million people in Pakistan without power after countrywide outage

Monday’s power outage is Pakistan’s most widespread power shutdown since 2021, when the nation plunged into darkness for hours after a “sudden plunge in the frequency in the power transmission system.”

We're at 1-3, but we're also going to be on the rain/snow switch line. Still could go either way for us.

Got your bread and milk yet!?! LOL Seriously, stay warm and safe. You know how people drive down there. Somewhere I read they're worried they may have to shut down I-40 in New Mexico. I think it's been awhile since they've had to do that.

1> THEY WANT LESS WITNESSES FOR WHAT IS COMING LATER.

2> getting rid of bottom feeders and see how well they can do with less workers.

3>workers are needed elsewhere to keep other supply chains functioning. all part of a bigger plan.

4> been replaced by computers. watch other corporartions following suit.

5>less data being moved cause there are less workers already.

6> with the axe to their necks the 1's left will sellout to "hackers" ahchoo govern ppl.


7> sign that govern now has enuf info on each of us they don't need any more.

8> a % of the layed off workers will b offered a nice position developing the AI replacements. paid for by UKRAINE laundered funds of course.

9> "layed off" doesn't mean what it used to. these ppl got SADS

10> Jazz doesn't tell enuf jokes any more so the workers have less to monitor. and i forgot to blame RUSSIA or TRUMP.

Rooters article.
At least the 2-3 months part is in the opening paragraph.
Still doubt many read that far.


Headline says:
China says COVID outbreak has infected 80% of population


Actual quote says:
The possibility of a big COVID-19 rebound in China over the next two or three months is remote as 80% of people have been infected, a prominent government scientist said on Saturday.

Re: Coffee Crowd for Civilized Discourse on World Events
I'm thinking we might be, the three of us, triplets.

Given up at birth, knocked around the foster home system for most of the next four years. Adopted by a couple who, I've come to believe, wanted children because all their friends had some. Dad was a functioning alcoholic which, in the 50's and 60's, was more common than not for lower middle class families. The alcohol helped blot out what their lives had NOT turned out to be.

Dad had decided early on what my career was going to be. I was going to go to Michigan Tech in the upper peninsula and come out a metallurgical engineer. I hate cold, I really hate snow, and working in a factory my whole life wasn't anything I'd ever imagined. A vet? Yup, love animals. An oceanographer? Yeah, always loved the water. His response was easy to interpret, "get the fuck out, I don't care what you do but you'll get no help from me. The day you graduate high school you're on your own you ungrateful little shit."

Per Riff, several questionable career choices later and after a much too soon marriage was over I finally, in 1999, found my true calling and spent the final 21 years of my working life looking forward to going to work every day. Liz and I found each other almost 16 years ago to the day. Finally found some birth family at the end of 2019 and that's worked out better than expected.

Liz wonders why I'm such an early riser. I had to think about that myself because I'm far enough into retirement that it's not just "habit" any more. I figured it out. It's simply a matter of being so happy that I look forward to and want to see what the day holds. There were long periods in my life when that wasn't the case...
 Quoting: Larry D. Croc


Make it quads.

I started University at age 15, as i was getting in trouble in school. Boredom and teachers/admins who did not know how to deal with a very high IQ GIRL. I was on dance team -- a nerd who could dance, but as soon as pep rallys or games were over, I was an outcast again. That's fine, as I preferred D&D over attempting to communicate with the banal and mundane.

Anyway, back in town for a few days.

Funny story:
Last weekend was at beach with Mr. LJS to do some property maintenance before high season starts end of February.

One evening, we go out to a music scene place to listen to a band we really like. Band starts at 9, we are having a great evening listening and dancing. About 11pm, Mr. LJS goes to the bathroom. He is not gone more than 30-45 seconds and some guy comes up to me and says, "You still hangin' with that dude?" My responds: "do you typically wait for men to go to the bathroom so you can hit on their wives?". I then turned my back on him as i hear the lady at the next table burst out laughing.

Bonehead probably made an incel, "I hate women" thread the next day.

I mean, WTF???!!!!! We both wear wedding rings, and mine are impossible to miss, unless blind. It is an insulting implication that I would even entertain a conversation in my husband's absence.

Ugh, humans ..............
