SHTF Story for You

 Are there readers out there? I am not as much of an avid reader as I used to be, but I still read quite a lot.

Currently, I am reading an SHTF novel I found online. 

The recently installed president is Hillary Boxer, due to a recently assassinated president, leading to a war that might be similar to what we may face in the near future. The scenario is as you would imagine.

Jokes


"How long have you been working at that office?"
"Ever since they threatened to fire me."



The Yiddish Parrot
Meyer, a lonely widower, was walking home one day. He was wishing something wonderful would happen to his life when he passed a pet store and heard a squawking voice shouting out in Yiddish: "Quawwwwk...vus macht du...!"
Meyer rubbed his eyes and ears. He couldn't believe it! Meyer stood in front of an African Grey that cocked his little head and said: "Vus? Kenst reddin Yiddish?"
In a matter of moments, Meyer purchased the bird and carried the parrot home. All night long he talked with the parrot...in Yiddish. The parrot listened while sharing some walnuts.
The next morning, Meyer began saying his prayers. The parrot wanted to pray, too. Meyer hand made a miniature yamulke for the parrot. The parrot also wanted to read Hebrew, so Meyer spent months teaching him the Torah.

On Rosh Hashanah, Meyer rose, got dressed, and was about to leave when the parrot demanded to go with him. Meyer explained that a synagogue was not a place for a bird, but the parrot pleaded and was carried to the synagogue on Meyer's shoulder.
Meyer was questioned by everyone, including the rabbi. At first, the rabbi refused to allow a bird into the building on the High Holy Days, but Meyer convinced him that the parrot could pray. Wagers were made on whether the parrot could speak Yiddish or not.
All eyes were on the two of them during services. The parrot was still perched on Meyer's shoulder as one prayer and song passed...but the parrot didn’t say a word. Annoyed, Meyer said "Pray, parrot! You can pray...do it now while everybody's looking at you!" The parrot said nothing.
After services were over, Meyer realized he owed the synagogue over four thousand dollars. He marched home, saying nothing. Finally, several blocks from the temple, the bird began to sing an old Yiddish song.
Meyer stopped and looked at him. "You miserable bird...you cost me over four thousand dollars today. Why? After I taught you the morning prayers, taught you to read Hebrew and the Torah. And, after you begged me to bring you to a synagogue on Rosh Hashanah...Why did you do this to me?"
"Don't be an idiot," the parrot replied. "Think of the odds we'll get on Yom Kippur!"

 Skydiving for the first time

A man is going skydiving for the first time. After listening to the instructor for what seems like days, he is ready to go.

The man goes up in the airplane and waits to get to the proper altitude. Excited, he jumps out of the airplane. After a bit, he pulls the ripcord. Nothing happens. He tries again. Still nothing. He starts to panic, but remembers his back-up chute. He pulls that cord. Nothing happens. He frantically begins pulling both cords, but to no avail.

Suddenly, he looks down and he can't believe his eyes. Another man is in the air with him, but this guy is going up! Just as the other guy passes by, the skydiver, by this time scared out of his wits, yells, "Hey, do you know anything about skydiving?" The other guy yells back, "No! Do you know anything about gas stoves?"

Water

 The upset over the line 5 pipeline has got me wondering about water. I went on youtube to search about line 5 and one of the things said there intrigued me. 

The lady said the Great Lakes combined hold about 21% of the freshwater supply of the entire world. 

Holy crap. 21% of the entire fresh water supply of the entire world. 

So that got me to looking further, and I found another place that said the largest and deepest freshwater lake in the world is Lake Baikal in Russia. They said it contains approximately 1/5 of the worlds fresh water supply.

Imagine that. 40% of the worlds fresh water is located in 2 countries. Unbelievable.

Then I found a site that sort of refutes that. It says Brazil has the most fresh water at 12%,  then russia, usa, canada, then china.

So who to believe? I don't know. 

Where do you get your freshwater from? Mine comes from community wells, with about 1000 or so connections on the system.  Our water here is not treated, it comes directly from the well to the system. Some of the wells we have are shutdown due to water quality issues.

So. Water is the lifeblood of everyone. I think it would behoove everyone to start researching where their water comes from, how it's treated(if it is), and tell all your friends and neighbors to do the same.

Here are some of the pages I visited:

Biden Greenlights RUSSIAN Pipeline?

 The decision to greenlight the Nord Stream 2 pipeline run by CEO Matthias Warnig, a Putin crony and former East German intelligence officer, comes less than five months after Biden yanked the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline to Russia’s benefit which runs from Canada to the Texas gulf on his first day in office. The day-one decision cost upwards of 25,000 jobs as the new president preached about nationwide unity.

A 10-Year-Old Kid Just Outed COVID Mask Tyrants As Total Hypocrites 

Did My Vaccine Take?

 I have been internet reading about vaccines, and how you may be tested to see if the vaccine "took". I don't think anyone will be surprised when I say, WTF?

Antibody testing isn’t conclusive for predicting COVID-19 immunity

In past vaccines antibodies have not shown up in blood work. I took the 2 shots for Covid vaccine. How do I know if it will work. Tried getting appointment with immunologist but have to wait 3 months. Can my Internist test me??? Sandy ANSWER: Officials with SSM health advise against getting an antibody test to see if the vaccine worked. They say it doesn’t give you an accurate picture and they wouldn’t want people to get discouraged. Health officials stress that all three vaccines work and protect against the virus.

Don't take the antibody test they say. Trust us they say. 

Uh Huh.



 

CAR SALESMAN: HOW ARE YOU GOING TO PAY? WE NEED A CREDIT APP! (DATA PRIV...

MMM MMM Good!

 Oh man, I just ate 2 ripe tomatoes. These were some we bought at the local high dollar store.

Don't know where they came from, but they were ripe, and not the reddish ones that are unripe you sometimes get.

Cut them into quarters, add some salt. Damn good.

Then add a finger of vodka to a glass and fill with orange juice. Am I healthy or what?

Tomatoes, orange juice. Guess I could've thrown the tomatoes in a blender and added the vodka. 

Which brings up, are you planting a garden this year? You need potatos to make the vodka.

 I haven't planted a garden in several years now. This year I did plant 2 tomato plants, they are about 1 foot tall now. I also planted 2 jalapeno plants, but at the moment they appear stunted. 

If shtf this summer I will be screwed. At least until i can get a garden going. I probably have 4 month, maybe 6 months of food supply if biden keeps screwing with the pipelines. If he and tptb succeed in shutting down our petroleum energy supplies, i figure we will have maybe 3 months of supplies before it heads south.

I don't think everything will go all at once, but maybe in slow progression. Anyway, this summer may be it.

That is my thinking and why i am starting to check out my preps again. For example this weekend I checked out my generator, and learned a valuable lesson I hope I don't forget. I am also going to go ahead and buy some more batteries and another inverter. 

I really don't have a point to anything here. Just recommending you check your preps, or, if you don't have any, start now to accumulate some.

Covid Snitches Get Outed in Small Washington Town

Diner Owner Sublimely Turns Tables on Snitches to COVID Hotline – 'We Deserve to Know Who We Can Trust' 

I lived in Port Orchard in 72 for about 6 months while my ship was in drydock. I think it was 72, it was the year of the jimmy carter gas shortage.

I lived on Long Lake in a small trailer home. The road we traveled to get home was level with the top of the trailer home. When it rained we had a 3 foot wide creek coming down from the road thru our driveway down to the lake.

There was an old lady who lived right on the lake, she had a covered boat shed. We used to borrow her boat to go fishing. 

This old lady was crazy. I was down at her place one sunday afternoon visiting her and her son? or daughter? I forget who it was. Anyway she asked me if I would like some moose milk. I said no thank you. But she insisted.

So, I said okay. She brings out this full size drinking glass full of milk and says try that. I say okay and take a big ole swig of that moose milk. My eyes got wide as saucers and i started spitting out that moose milk and choking and gasping. Good lord!

What she did was fill the glass half full of regular milk, and half full of Jack Daniels! Ho Lee Fuk!

She had a great big ole laugh over that. Come to find out that woman would sit in her rocker, with a quart of Jack Daniels and a quart of milk by her side and drink that crap all day long.

Never saw her again after we left drydock. I hope she lived out her life without running out of moose milk.

Oldie but Goodie

 Jack, a handsome man, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 pm.  He sat down next to this blonde at the bar and stared up at the TV as the 10:00 news came on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a large building preparing to jump. 

The blonde looked at Jack and said,  "Do you think he'll jump?"
Jack says, "You know what, I bet he will."  The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't."  Jack placed $30 on the bar and said, "You're on!" 
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy did a swan dive off of the building, falling to his death.  The blonde was very upset and handed her $30 to Jack, saying, "Fair's fair... Here's your money."
Jack replied, "I can't take your money, I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump." 
The blonde replies, "I did too;  but I didn't think he'd do it again."
Jack took the money.

Feeling Stupid Today

 Have you ever felt just plain stupid?

That was me today. All I wanted to do was fire up my little 3500 watt generator and let it run for a while. Simply to exercise it, make sure everything works.

Opened the gas, fiddled with the choke, wind the starter cord around the pulley. The automatic recoil has broken and I haven't figured out how to get it apart yet. Anyway, pull the cord, and nothin'.

Check the gas, it's got plenty. Check the oil just in  case, it has a low oil shutoff. It's okay.

Wind around the pulley, pull it and nothin'. I do this about fifteen times. Grab a can of brakleen, give it a blast, pull on it nothin. I do this about 10 times.

I'm standing there scratchin my head, then my butt, then my head. 

And all of a sudden it hits me. Just like a 2x4 between the eyes.

I haven't turned the on/off switch to the on position.

Son of a bitch.

Fence Work

 Nancy Pelosi saw that the fence she had put up had become damaged. So she called in two fence contractors, one democrat and one republican. 

The republican fence contractor checks out the damage and says, $1000 for the repair.

The democrat contractor whispers in Pelosi's  ear:$5000. $2000 for you, $2000 for me, we hire him to fix the fence.

Done she says.

Tired

 For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep and too much partying, but now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked.


The population of this country is 237 million.

104 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work.

There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work.

2.8 million are in the Armed Forces, which leaves 16.2 million to do the work.

Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for State and City Government and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work.

At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work.

Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me.

And you're sitting there reading jokes

Printer Ink

 For the last week I have been working on my federal and state income taxes(hack spit fart cough).

I got the federal done and printed out and mailed off to the bastards.

But my state taxes I had to put on hold because of printer ink.

My magenta ink cartridge ran completely the hell out and the printer said no more printing until you replace that cartridge. I said I will trick you by replacing with a different color until I can get a new cartridge.  AAAAANNNNNKKK! No dice there, the cartridges are designed to not let you do that. So, previously on the printer ink being low I had gone to office depot to get said cartridge. But. HP, which is my brand of printer, in their infinite wisdom and to get you to buy another printer, has apparently quit manufacturing the 02 style of ink cartridges which is what my printer takes. Crap. 

No joy anywhere locally to find one either.

So my daughter goes to target? I think it was online, and found some that are not HP ink. She orders those for me, they got here today. They are not the same physical shape, but they fit, and i was finally able to print out my tax forms for the bastards at the state.


Pisses me off the aholes at HP don't  make those cartridges anymore. The printer is a great printer and has lots of life left in it, more than I do I think.

But for now the brand I purchased will work. Until they quit making those.

Oh well. Such is the way of life in the time of biden and the hoe.

Auto Work Today

My grandson recently bought a used 1998 expedition to replace the durango that the insurance company kept after his fender bender.

When we read the ad, it said it had some minor things to do to it.

We knew the ac was leaking and the heater core was bypassed and a few other things, but he bought it because it was better than most for the price.

Today he came up to replace inner and outer tierod ends. Simple job right?

Jacked up the passenger side, wheel off, got the inner and outer tierod assembly off. Took about 15 minutes total. I was pleased. 

Then my grandson made the fatal mistake, and I wasn't quick enough to stop him.

He said, "That went a lot easier than I thought it would!" And i screamed and gnashed my teeth and cried tears of frustration and said what did you do?

He looked at me like I was crazy, which my wife does several times per day. I think she has a quota or something.

I said you have jinxed us because you said it went better than you thought.  Now everything will go bad! He looked at me like I was crazy.

Well, look who was proven correct! We were only going to replace the tierod ends and reuse the connecting sleeve between the two. Well, guess what? The new parts don't thread into the old sleeve. And new hardware, such as new locknuts and cotter  pins were not provided in the boxes. 

So, back to O'Reillys he goes. Come to find out, the installation instructions that came in the new parts boxes he got, which were not in the ones that we had, state that the new tierod ends cannot be used with the oem connecting sleeve. Huh?? WTF?? So he got new connecting sleeves as well. Or maybe they are called adjusting sleeves?

So, we put the new assembly on, measured out to the same dimension as the old one, and the tire is pointed to the right about 4 inches. So we fought that for an hour to get it straight. Then to the other side to replace that. The nut for the inner rod end was seized and took us about 30 minutes to remove.

Anyway finally got it all done. But I warned him, Don't ever say anything about how good it's going again! It's Dangerous!

Hey! All You Goddamn Democrats! What the hell is this shit?

Gas stations along the U.S. East Coast are beginning to run out of fuel

The gas pipeline is still having issues and a few stations on the east coast are running out of gas.

Shortbus joe says the hackers are from russia. 

"The dwindling supplies come just as the nation’s energy industry was preparing to meet stronger fuel demand from summer travel. Americans are once again commuting to the office and booking flights after a year of restrictions. Depending on the duration of the disruption, retail prices could spike, further stoking fears of inflation as commodity prices rally worldwide."

Ron DeSantis Signs Bill Banning Local Governments From Implementing Their Own Gun Control Laws

 My  personal opinion about gun laws is that absolutely no one has the authority to make a gun control law. And I mean no one.

If we the people want guns regulated, then the only way to do that is make an amendment to the constitution.

Otherwise everyone is free to keep and bear arms.

But we the people continue to let politicians run amuck with these laws.

Some Old Jokes, But Still Funny

 Sidney walks up to the head lumberjack and says he was there to apply for the job of tree cutter. Sidney is only about 5'4" tall, the lumberjack is 6'4" tall. 

The lumberjack says, you are kinda small, where have you worked before? Sidney says,"The Sahara Forest"

The lumberjack says, "You mean the Sahara Desert?"

Sidney says, "That's what they call it now!"

Sidney gets the job, the next day the head boss gives Sidney a chainsaw and they go out to the woods. Boss tells Sidney cut down all these trees with red paint markers, about 50 of them, and goes back to the camp.

Sidney gets back to camp that night pretty tired and immediately starts sharpening the chain on the saw. The boss comes up and asks, "How many you cut down?"

Sidney says "One."

The boss is flabbergasted. We cut down at least 10 a day he says, you gotta do better.

Next day Sidney is plumb wore out. Boss says how many today? Sidney says 2.

Boss says what the heck? Is there something wrong with your saw?

He takes the saw, pulls the cord and it starts on the first try. Brrrrap, Brrrap the saw goes.

Gas Pipeline Ransomware

 The colonial gas pipeline shutdown has been going a few days now. Apparently some robinhood type group has placed ransomware on their computers and is demanding payment to release them.

If i was the head of colonial, i would hire an equally talented group of mercenaries to hunt down and liquidate this group that calls itself dark side i believe. Think about that. If in the news you see that several computer hacker types have been severely tortured and mutilated because they were suspected of hacking the colonial pipeline, what do you think future hackers might think?

Now lookit, this pipeline supposedly provides 45% of gasoline and diesel from Texas to New England. Why in the hell would you put any control of it on computers with access to internet? Or whatever net they use. Old technology, to me, is better than new technology.

Relays and switches that have to be human operated, may have some human error but that is better than being lockedout. If the hackers have to physically travel to a site to do any hacking, that might deter such hacking, in my opinion.

Any who, here is a link to an article:

The Income Tax is Too Damn High!

 You have heard the saying The Rent is Too Damn High!

Well I say The Income Tax is Too Damn High!

You know why income tax is too damn high? I will tell you. It is because nobody prepares their own tax forms anymore.

In the past people would prepare their own taxes and they would have all the information they needed and could see their income and their outgo and they could gripe about it or call their congressman or whatever they needed to do. Fill out a page here, fill out a page there, go back and erase this page and redo that page, then bundle it all up and put in an envelope and mail it.

Then along comes H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt, and how convenient you can go down and pay someone else to do it for you. Then all you have to do is sign the damn check and you don't grumble anymore and call your congressman.

And Now. You can get on your smart phone now and do your taxes in just a couple of minutes for some people, half hour or so for others.

Give em a credit card if you need to and voila! you are done!

Lotsa places are free gratis to post your taxes, so it might all be free for you.

I think, though, if  everyone had to prepare their own taxes and deal with all the trials and tribulations of that, more people would be calling up their congresscritters, and yelling "The Tax is Too Damn High!

 Update: This just goes to show how inefficient our government is. This letter i got today that i talk about the $2800 they sending me, they already did that on March 23, and I had forgotten about it. But they sending me a letter about it dated April 29? This is just like a damn democrat. A day late and more money out of my pocket.

I just spent a large portion of the afternoon yelling, screaming and going ballistic. I worked on my 2020 federal income taxes.

Everything about it is on the goddamn computer now. I want a booklet mailed to me with instructions and forms, like they used to do. But not anymore boy. They could save money by not requiring security on their people. Because this crap is on the computer, and the pdf doesn't always work right, as in my case with the damn instruction booklet today, i am ready to go shoot some damn .gov employees! Fuck this bullshit!

So i am mostly done, just gotta review it, check the math, all of course after my blood quits boiling. I'm tellin ya, i got more than just a little bit pissed. At one  point i thought i had to pay almost $10,000 more in effin taxes and i launched a rocket out the roof i'm tellin ya! I don't know what i did wrong because i couldn't see much past the red in my eyes, but it looks like i gotta pay $953 to the damn gov't.

So, after all that i go check the mailbox, and in todays mail i only get one envelope, and it says  Department of the Treasury, Internal Revenue Service, Austin Texas.

Then blahblahblah.Check the website to see where your payment is at. Not in my bank that's for sure. Go to their website and it wants me to create an account, uh uh not gonna happen. Then it says ELIGIBLE people will get the check and i thought I'm Eligible? Huh.

But its only gonna be issued after they review my 2020 taxforms, which i haven't mailed in yet, cause i'm only doin them today!

Hot Today

 At the moment the temperature is 93°F. Gonna be 96°F at 5pm today.

I knew the heat was coming and now it is here.

Turned on the house ac earlier, about 2 pm. Set it on 75 or so. I don't care what people say about the cost, i want to be comfortable, and cool is comfortable. If i gotta worry about the cost to run the damn thing, i will simply remove it and sweat.

Here in my office, i have a portable room air conditioner, and i have it set on 62°F. I turned it off a few minutes ago, cause i was cold.

I have been thinking of buying a unit called a mini split airconditioner and putting in my living room. 


That area of the house has never cooled down properly. A mini split has the evaporator unit inside, and the condensing unit outside. Kind of like a cars ac unit is setup. I have been looking at the ones that use an inverter technology. Not sure how but they are supposedly less expensive to operate.

Speaking of that, i have always  been under the impression that operating an ac unit at 220 volts is cheaper than operating one at 110 volts. While looking at the amp draw specs on this one, i have changed my mind about that. They had specs listed for both 110 and 220 volts. Turns out the 220 volt unit uses about the same amount of power or slightly more than the 120 does.  Gotta do more research, but if that stays true i will get the 110 volt one. Because i am planning on using solar panels and batteries to run the thing. If it works out okay i will let you know. Gotta get the dough to buy the stuff first though.
