  • Russia propaganda machine gains on U.S.

    William of Barsoom to familyop

    Voice of America shortwave radio used to do a good job way back before the Big Brayne guys defunded it. Now, its pale undernourished shadow persists on the internet - for those open-minded countries that allow it in. AND it’s so “internationalist” and accommodating in tone now, and so multicultural, much of the impact is blunted

    Once, VOA brought OUR American culture TO foreign lands, and transcended borders and gatekeepers, and in those lands they were glad to have it as a channel of hope for a better life.

    Maybe the new crop of Big Brayners will one day see the wisdom of restoring it to a service once widely trusted all around the world.

  • ally Really Stupid: #1, Neil deGrasse Tyson

    So much negativity! Give the man a break, already. He’s entitled, as an American, to express his opinion on warmism any way he wants. I think warmism is bunk, but that’s just MY opinion.

    The new “Cosmos” is stunningly beautiful, as was the first one. In fact, Carl’s “Cosmos,” and it’s remarkable vision for its time greatly affected me and the specialty I worked with in my career as a photographer in film and video — bluescreen (and greenscreen) special effects shooting.

    But Tyson’s role as a “presenter” on television is the point here, and he is as dignified, capable, “comfortable,” and effective a presenter as ever comes along.

    It’s not likely that The Scientific Method” will ever be stifled effectively for long. “The truth will out,” over time, as it always does.

    Most of the world — from colleges to media — is deeply bent to the liberal side these days, but that pendulum will also swing in time. “Cosmos,” both new and original, are products of their respective times and the opinions of their writers and shooters.

    It’s not our opinion as conservatives, but it DOES bear “doing some honest Science” on it and determine where the real truth is.

    I will say this: ultra long term, the sun and bio-produced liquid fuels are the only possible answer to all the energy we will ever need. Some 700 watts, approximately, falls on every square yard (or meter) as long as the sun is out. That’s a lot, and should be the First Source for most ordinary power requirements — as it inescapably will be, long-term.

    So, watch “Cosmos” — either one — for its Vision and graphic beauty, and filter the politics in it out with your mind. But let the beauty, power, and visualizations through.

    Reputable Scientists of their day believed in “Phlogiston,” too, and that was a crock, as Honest Science eventually determined.

    If I needed a spokes of Neil’s type, I’d hire him in a New York second.

  • Micro-Prepping -- Final Call

    11/20/2015 10:40:37 AM PST · 7 of 127
    William of Barsoom to William of Barsoom

    My purpose is to motivate a few people who have done nothing at all to do Something, no matter how modest, to help themselves before-the-fact. Now you can ridicule, dismiss, and disparage all you like, and point out by inference how minimalist these four points are, but have some consideration for those who have postponed and procrastinated because the job as the experts define it, it too big and expensive. You would serve these people better by contributing something positive as opposed to sniping.

    First steps are followed by second steps — but only if first steps are taken at all.

    If you're reading these pages, you know it's coming. You probably also think it's close -- very close.

    There's still some time, not much but just barely enough if you DON'T want to be caught totally short, but don't have the time or funds for a Full-Up Prep job.

    So, I advise you to stop, think logically, asses your situation, and do the following simple and very short list of easy things before sundown.

    1) Put some bottled water under your bed. As much as will fit right in the six-pack carriers from the store.

    2) Get some food that doesn't need cooking or refrigeration. There is a myriad of choices at every supermarket. Just THINK before you buy.

    3) Get a simple AM-FM portable radio and plenty of extra batteries. When SHTF your iPhone will not serve you well. Don't count on TeeVee or the internet to be accessable when SHTF. Have independent information sources.

    4) Get some LED flashlights and plenty of batteries. LEDs are far more battery-efficient. You don't need big high-power ones: rather get a larger number of smaller ones - pocket or neck-lanyard types.

    If you do these simple and cheap four things, you'll be in MUCH better shape than the majority of your neighbors, and can get through a week or even two with "all the plugs out."

    Prepping is a deep and complex and expensive business at the high end, and it isn't practical for some people. But at the minimalist end, these four simple things, it can make a HUGE difference in your ability to get through whatever inconvenience the fates may deliver.

    Several days too soon is MUCH better than five minutes too late, so GET THIS DONE! NOW! While the sun is still out and your credit cards still work!

    MOVE!

  • President Trump? Part 2: What if he's the nominee?

    11/20/2015 9:50:45 AM PST · 31 of 48
    William of Barsoom to JediJones

    Trump will not be the nominee. Bush will be.

    The primary rules before March 15th are designed to keep the delegate count diffused and spread out among the many candidates by using Proportional Allocation.

    After March 15th, the rules become “winner takes all,” and a less-than majority candidate takes all the marbles. These are also the bigger higher delegate-count states.

    This amounts to a GOPPY fix, favoring Their Guy, Jeb.

    Watch it happen.

    William of Barsoom to dennisw

    Let’s try this:

    “Global Climate Change,” and the procedures it demands, is a savagely racist, and oppressive progrom to destroy the world’s less fortunate peoples — meaning anyone not white European, or current elements of the global British Commonwealth.

    “Global Climate Change” is a racist and murderous trick, clothed in deceptive and speculative faux-”Science,” to cull the Earth’s population to levels the Ruling Elite consider optimal. The world’s less fortunate have NOT been consulted on this.

    The great deception of “Global Climate Change” is a product of racist, elitist promoters of a single, global oppressive world government, run by themselves, and for their exclusive benefit.

    “Global Climate Change” is born of the Ruling Elites’ attitude of, “We’ve got ours, and now we’re locking the door to keep everybody else in the world poor and miserable so we can retain and expand our comfort, control, wealth, and power.”

    (Let’s see if that flies anywhere...)

    Please be assured... I say these words with all Christian love and respect my heart can summon. I know they may hurt you, but I hope they do not.

    It is time to consider your dog’s best interests. He can’t understand what will befall him in the days to come. He will know fear and pain and the strangeness of his condition, but can’t know the why.

    The Time has come for more than one of my Friends in years past, and hard as it was, and cry like I did, with time I saw the proper stewardship role thrust on me merely by my taking them into my life, and loving them.

    I insisted on being with them and in physical contact with them as they crossed the Rainbow Bridge. For the last one, the vet gave us a comfortable chair in a quiet room, and a towel across my lap, as one mild shot for sleeping was given, and then a bit later, the other shot was administered. For all he knew, he fell asleep in my lap with me gently scratching the back of his neck. He was purring. And then he wasn’t.

    I went directly to the shelter and got “Little Bo,” who partly filled the gap the same day.

    God has given us dominion over the animals, and we owe them respect more than we do a long and difficult life.

    This is my opinion. I’m sure others will disagree.

    I’m using Outlook 2000 on a Win7 machine, and it works with a few minor cramps. I do recall during the installation there was a choice that went by in a dialog box that was easy to miss. The thing ran poorly. I did a re-install and noticed the box the second time — something like “install backwards compatible” or something like the spirit of that. Ran fine after that. -—for what that may be worth.

  • Confederate Flag First, Fleur-De-Lis Next?

    07/11/2015 8:57:46 AM PDT · 19 of 34
    William of Barsoom to rktman

    Well, I’m personally deeply gratified that the deaths of the nine innocent Bible studiers in Charleston, gunned down by the deranged nut off his meds, have now been honored and properly recognized by the strong and swift popular action of banning the Confederate flag wherever it be found. There! Ha! All fixed!

    Just this morning on a local radio talk call-in show, some guy who said he was the president of some puffy sounding Important Committee, phoned in to demand that Bill Cosby’s star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame be “yanked up by its roots and melted down!” I wasn’t aware the star’s stars actually took root, as a plant would, but I’m not the president of an important citizen’s committee on the public safety; I’m just some little dumb guy hopelessly soaked in his own White Privilege, so nothing I could add or say would have any weight. My white life doesn’t matter, I guess. I am blind, I am stupid, I am a hater, I am ignorant, and I am evil — all by simple definition. My skin tells the only story worth knowing about me. I should be put to death as a “useless eater.” I am a despicable modern day Shylock, a rotten and hateful creature by birth. (Still, “if prick’d, do I not bleed?”)

    Are we now to ban anything, anywhere that anybody, anywhere finds offensive?

    I predict that in ten years school children (Politically Incorrect? Maybe “Pre-Adult Citizens In Training” would be better?) won’t even be taught there was a “Civil War,”, or a “War Between The States,” or even a “Yankee War Of Aggression. The whole subject will be presented, if at all, as a brief Northern military incursion in force to correct certain
    unspecified sociological irregularities taking place in the South. A few brief skirmishes, and the deviant stupid South was set back on a proper course of development. Victory for all. Those poor souls who were killed, all died pointless deaths devoid of meaning and honor and not worthy of any respect or acknowledgement in these more modern and
    enlightened times.

    We must re-phrase Lincoln for these modern enlightened times. He is now better rendered as, “With charity for none, and malice for all, unlike us, who think differently. You must not only submit: you must approve. You are required to honestly and deeply love Big Brother from the very depths of your soul.

    2) Whenever I shoot a shot like that, my windows “blow out” from overexposure. I have to either light the room strongly, or “gel” the windows to balance the light to make a shot like that.

    “...or have your 501(C) tax emempt status revoked.”

    Well, there hangs the center of it. Ok, fine, LET them revoke the preferred tax treatment. Figure when it comes to this point, your church will become a tax-paying operation — like any other business. “Render unit Caesar,” and so forth. Raise additional funds to cover the tax bills.

    Of course, even that level of knuckling under won’t help you. They’ll cancel your special tax status and force you to do the ceremony anyway — just like the cake baker, who was not even a church, but a simple commercial business.

    It’s not about civil rights, or religion — it’s about tyranny and mind control. They demand the power, and you will submit — or else. (Remind you of anything?)

    Now, don’t get me wrong: I’m a bible-believing Christian to the best of my inadequate ability. What I am saying is, the evil ones hated Him long before they came to hate and crush you.

    They’re tribal: and they’ll all be at each other’s throats for the next 1400 years as well.

    If this is what it takes to win, then winning is without value.
