Abominable Snowpuppeh greetin’s, GN!

It appears the U.S. trucker convoy hasn’t got much momentum as of this morning, which is probably a good thing for many of the reasons Sven pointed-out yesterday. Especially the “too little, too late” aspect.

Oh, and BOO KITTY IS A LIER!

It’s reassuring that on our ever-changing, fast-paced, madcap modern world, some things remain a constant. 🙂

I’m looking forward to the “gaffe reel” of tonight’s SOTU; wonder if Nancita is planning any puerile on-camera shenanigans or nah…

Sure wish I had a better sense of what’s actually happening in Ukraine; I’m still assuming that any reports I see are someone’s propaganda.

=======================

Nice to see when musicians improvise, adapt and overcome (although this might be a bit noisy):

Good morning, Fatwa --

I really hope that dog in teh thread pic isn’t, you know, dead.

Mrs Sven spent some time with Frank yesterday evening -- I’ll go over today at lunch. He didn’t wake up while she was there.

I was busily typing away yesterday to justify my paycheck from teh bestest place ever when a crown on one of my molars popped off. Luckily, I didn’t swallow the damn thing and more luckily my dentist was able to fit me in. Not much fun tho.

To avoid WWIII, if a nuke goes off somewhere I wonder if the MSM would go full covid and question if it came from the most likely source, Russia? No, no, no, the experts say the most likely source is a high school student’s science project gone awry.

Happy Chill-puppeh Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

I’ve known a few dogs with thick coats that loved to lay in the snow. It always makes me wonder if they are absolutely miserable during the summer.

I read an article this morning about a U.S. couple that were in Ukraine for the surrogate birth of their child. They were still in the hospital when the bombing started. The US Embassy was closed and of very little help. It took the help of a couple of congressmen to get them across the Polish border.

I’ve been reading Solzhenitsyn’s Warning to the West and came across this paragraph:

I must say that the United States, of all the countries of the West, is the

least guilty and has done the most in order to prevent it. The United States

has helped Europe to win the First and the Second World Wars. It twice

raised Europe from postwar destruction—twice—for ten, twenty, thirty

years it has stood as a shield protecting Europe while European countries

counted their nickels to avoid paying for their armies (better yet, to have

none at all), to avoid paying for armaments, thinking about how to leave

NATO, knowing that in any case America will protect them. These

countries started it all, despite their thousand-year-old civilization and

culture, even though they are closer to the danger and should have seen it

more clearly.

That’s from a speech he gave in 1975. Seems like it took more than 40 years before an American president called Europe out on them not paying their fair share for their own defense.

He and Yuri have been warning us for over 40 years. No one listening.

I have been saying for over 40 years, that we have to respond to marxist evil faster than 40 years. Ignoring a problem doesn’t make it go away.

I have always cautioned conservatives who talk about marxism in the universities like it’s some kind of joke. they always say: “… then these kids get out into the real world, and they find out…”

Fxck.

Don’t they realize that these kids enter corporations and Personnel departments (now marxified into “human resources”) and bring all those unchallenged, toxic, marxist assumptions with them into everything they do.

Makes you admire the ones who are resistant to it. But you have to realize that everyone has been infused with marxist assumptions to one degree or another. Unless you’re constantly vigilant and a real student of history, it’s very hard for even a staunch conservative, libertarian, or any other anti marxist to divest yourself of these influences.

They are literally EVERYWHERE.

Back to hospice which means I’ll miss out on Brandon’s speech -- will expect updates out of you guys.

I was there at lunch -- quite a difference from Sunday as Mrs Sven noted last night -- the staff says maybe another day or two. I’ve noticed the same thing again -- the difference between men and women in situations like this. Men are mostly useless -- we want to do something, fix things. Women are more in the moment and content to be there.

We will defend Ukraine, but we won’t commit US forces, but if Russia dares to move into NATO territory, then, by gum, we’ll defend NATO.

We stand with our fellow Ukrainian-Americans. Putin may capture Keev, but he’ll never dampen the spirits of freedom loving people here in America. We’ll release oil from our strategic reserves to show Putin we mean business.

The drugs he’s taking dilate his pupils and he’s squinting. Harris and Pelosi behind him are in the same light and they aren’t squinting.

I’ve made a deal with Pfizer to buy lot’s of their new anti-viral pills. We’re setting up a system so that you can go to the drugstore, get a test, and if you’re positive, you can get the Pfizer pills right then, at no cost.

I’m sure the Pfizer execs are happy.

Most Americans can remove their masks and remain in the classroom. But this is costly. I’ll come back to Congress for more funding. We’ll vaccinate the world. You can’t build a wall high enough to stop a…a… vaccine.

Ban ghost guns that you can buy online and assemble at home.

Brings up Beau Biden, living in a hooch in Afghanistan.
He talks about burn pits the size of football fields that are causing cancer among our veterans.

God bless America and may God bless our Troops! Thank you! Go get him!

I’m not sure who “him” is.

The prediction was for 75 minutes -- he didn’t make it. I guess the pharmaceuticals aren’t as good as they had hoped.

As someone commented, it was the speech you’d give if everything was going well.
