Perhaps the BEST thing we could do is largely become Dennis' filter.Bracketquant. Y'all CLEARLY have a life that is more or less complete without TB2K.
The Boss is no where NEAR as fortunate. Yes he has the pups, and I BELIEVE he's working from home. BUT, he can't just get up on a Friday Morning and decide, "Ain't gonna look in on the Board until Monday evening. They just going to have to get on without me." THAT is NOT going to happen. Which means that he is internalizing all this crap that we are posting or commenting about. This, though, is unhealthy as sin.
I am FORTUNATE that I have a bride who outweighs me by some (not much) but who out SHOOTS me by an appreciable margin.
She works HARD for a living and has asked me to filter the world for her. So I do filter what I tell her. When it looks like it's Tuesday and the trains are gonna park on Thursday night, I get to tell her so we can figure out how to get things up to where we can plan on eating ALL the way through the disruption.
Other than that, she MAKES me, as we used to say when I was a MOD here, "Back away from the chalupa. At least for 2-4 days, when it becomes obvious that I have hit my saturation point."
As long as she outshoots me, she gets to tell me it's time to put the board on ignore and lets go do some REAL LIFE SCHTUFF!
If I could, I'd consider cloning her, wiping her memory and send Dennis the clone. Science ain't THERE yet.
The BEST thing we can do for the Boss would be to NOT create trash he has to sort out here. No picking fights with folks. No EARNING a trip to TIO. No being more of an ass than we USUALLY are. Basically, tread a LITTLE lightly here. NOT saying walk around on eggshells, cuz' THAT makes it ****ing NASTY for EVERYBODY. Just try to make sure that the Drama Llama stays in the corral for a while. WHEN "the STUFF" breaks loose we are ALL going to need to be armed up, tribed up, loaded and LOCKED to the gills, and ready to shoot, a LOT.
Kath, don't hold back. Tell us how you REALLY feel about "that other side".
At the moment - till they outlaw them - and they will.Explain how it will be exactly like Nazi Germany.
One of the first, and the most important, things Germany did was gun confiscation. Americans have approximately 500,000,000 guns. They have ALL the cards?
You need to distance yourself mentally from current events. It's about to get weirder, uglier, and more stressful than you can possibly imagine. I STRONGLY suggest reading Selco Begovic's The Dark Secrets of SHTF Survival. It's not a how-to manual of mechanics like water storage and perimeter security. It is, instead, primarily about the mindset needed to deal with your normal world falling into continual danger, primal violence, and total destruction.
Bottom line: those who can steel themselves psychologically and adapt to their world torn asunder will survive. Those who can't, won't.
I rate this coming Feast of Trumpets (26/27) as being the most likely date (“no man knows the day or the hour“ when it begins...) for the sudden “end of the world“ here on Earth for those who await Christ returning for His Bride... as we are already deep into Trib territory. You think we have it bad here? Look around at the rest of the world!The world is ending this coming weekend (24th, 25th). Can you hold out that long?
I truly sympathize with good landlords.I deal with them every day unfortunately. They are at all levels of society. Had I not learned to be very self-controlled I would probably be doing life at Lowell Annex here in Florida (max security for women). People are by and large stupid to the point of failure to deserve their existence. Oh well. God is allowing this situation to bring something to a head I suppose. So I let Him control the wheel. Just because there are certain idiots that think they are in charge doesn't mean they are correct.
And eventually they f’d around and found out.
Yeah, I see Holder and Hunter in prison. I see Piglosi in prison. I see Schiff in prison.For example, notice the calls for Fauci to stand trial. Also notice all of the secrets revealed about Physer.
I truly sympathize with good landlords.
While there are many many decent people who rent, overall the people who own their homes appear to have more motivation and discipline in their lives. If they own it, they will generally try to take care of it. Since they likely would like to stay in the same place, as their neighbors also would, it makes a lot of sense to treat the neighbors kindly.
There are enough people out there who care nothing about anything other than themselves and what's theirs. I imagine that many do not make good renters, nor neighbors. Perhaps they see themselves as being ever transient, with no need to be connected to any current surroundings.
I don't believe that many of those gov workers are apathetic. I believe they have to lay low, or their lives would be made a living hell by their superiors. Or worse, their jobs would get cancelled.There are a lot of people like that everywhere. Not just people who rent. People in government and I'm not just talking about those that float to the top. A lot of gov clerks are megalomaniacs of one flavor or the other and yet others who are so apathetic it is a wonder they even bother showing up for work. There are decent people out in the world, save your energy for them but don't expect paybacks or pay forwards. Lots less heartache that way.
The day that you recognize that you are part of God's plan, is the day when your part comes. There should be no delay in carrying it out. Just remember that His plan is not man's plan.I got up this morning and realized, I am still here. So obviously God's plan for me is still in play. I guess I can take comfort in that I was chosen for this particular place and time. I sincerely hope that when my part comes, I will have the strength and wisdom to carry it out.
Every one of us has a line in the sand, a breaking point beyond which there is no return. I don't think I've hit mine yet, but I often ask...is this it Lord? I haven't heard a "Yes" yet, so until that time I will make some popcorn, pop a cold Coke and watch the show. There are somethings that I CAN control and somethings that are totally out of my control. I'm not going to stress over the things I have no control over. I'm putting those things into some very capable hands. If He needs me to help, He knows where to find me.
That being said (fair warning), if you touch or harm one of my precious grandbabies, this grandma will go berserker on you. I've had a great life and will not mind in the least to take a few out with me.
Few people like the bullshit going on, this includes many dems. But we've got to keep our cool, for if we go off prematurely it will mean jail time or being dead. Keeping a cool head keeps ones senses and sensibility very keen so if something really bad does happen, we will have a better idea what to do. In times of war or other disaster, I'd say the emotionally distraught are the first to perish. Those fully aware of what's going on with a plan of sorts will survive.
I suggest all that are wound up to just chill. Do not do anything stupid.
a good portion of this is ABSOLUTE TRUTH.If one actively spends one's time in seeking out all of the bullsh*t being dumped on themselves, of course they will believe that they can't take much more. They key is to not actively seek the bullsh*t, so that there will be much less of it in one's life.
Why do people bring such misery upon themselves? The left doesn't want just themselves to be miserable. They want others to be miserable, too. Don't play their mind games.
Exactly! There's always something to enjoy. Yes, the problems will still be there, and still need consideration and monitoring, but they should not consume your whole day's thinking or one will literally go insane. That's why we need to focus on the enjoyments of life more than the depressing shit, if for no other reason, to maintain sanity.A good time to enjoy whatever you've got left to enjoy.
its been said before -coz the gov can only deal with the onesy-twosy wacked out nutjob. When that one nutjob becomes an organized (or unorganized) group of likeminded people past the tipping point....... then they respond with more J6 tactics.
It's all they got, given they're keeping the "appearance" of elections and "peaceful transfer of power".

You mentioned apples, ours are just turning ripe and they are so good.
let me be crystal clear. I completly agree with this mindset. what I have difficulty accepting is that WHEN this balloon goes up there are people who will be completely and utterly accepting of it and do absolute N O T H I N G for themselves and others in their care.Few people like the bullshit going on, this includes many dems.

major truth. - here's another - if someone FAILS to plan they PLAN to FAIL. we can look right here on this thread and see some of this. with a bit of effort we can see those who will NOT ACKNOWLEDGE what's ahead. I see that as tragedy in the makingIn times of war or other disaster, I'd say the emotionally distraught are the first to perish. Those fully aware of what's going on with a plan of sorts will survive.
