Leigh sends with the note "The Day Irish Loses His Shit"...

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Hold on just one minute here, you can't have it both ways.....

 

 Yesterday I was "shootin' the shit" with one of my employees and, as always, the conversation 

turned to current events. You can't help it, right? He mentioned hearing that they were hoping

to have a huge increase in births due to the whole covid pandemic which didn't happen.

  Me: why the fuck would would anyone want to bring a baby into this world in the current

situation. Would you want to be going to a hospital in labor with a new born on the way?

Plus the stress and daily BS of the whole situation doesn't really make for some candlelight

dinners with Barry White playing in the background leading to rose petals on the bed and 

an hour or two of baby making.


Onward to my point.  How many times have we heard there are too many humans? In a couple posts

below there were dire predictions of over population. NOW, they are sounding the alarm

on a decline in birthrates. 

I'm sitting here drinking covfefe and catch this headline:

 

 

Experts sound the alarm on declining birth rates among younger generations: "It's a crisis"


  

I thought that's what they wanted? Silly me.  Let's see what the "EXPERTS" say. (via CBS)

 

New data is confirming a baby boom that some doctors expected was actually a "baby bust." Health departments in more than two dozen states provided records to CBS News, showing a 7% drop in births in December — nine months after the first lockdowns began. 

Researchers say it continues a much bigger plunge in fertility in recent decades.

The number of babies the average woman in the U.S. is expected to deliver has dropped from nearly four in the 1950s to less than two today. 

The drop could present an entirely different risk to society than one that was first warned about decades ago — when an apocalyptic fear gripped America in the 1960s and 1970s.

"The stakes in this battle are far greater than any other we have ever fought," Walter Cronkite said in a 1970 CBS News broadcast. "The experts we interviewed told us population was the fundamental crisis."

As the world stampeded toward 10 billion people, many researchers back then predicted that overpopulation would ruin humanity.

Biologist Paul Ehrlich once explained the threat as "The Population Bomb," the title of a book he authored in 1968.

"Sometime in the next 15 years, the end will come — and by the end, I mean an utter breakdown of the capacity of the planet to support humanity,"  he said in a 1970 broadcast.

Today, however, a very different note is struck by researchers like University of Southern California Professor Dowell Myers, who studies demographic trends.

"The trouble is we overshot and we dropped it down too much now," Myers told "CBS This Morning" co-host Tony Dokoupil.  ( <<< READ THAT AGAIN.) ( so they are actively controlling birth rates?)

While the global population is still growing, a major study published in The Lancet in 2020 predicted it would peak in 2064, and then fall by nearly a billion people by the end of the century — the reason being, fewer babies.

The U.S. is already below the so-called "replacement level" by some measures, meaning fewer young people to support the country's otherwise aging population.

Myers said of the decline, "That's a crisis." 

AND THE MONEY QUOTE:

"We need to have enough working-age people to carry the load of these seniors, who deserve their retirement, they deserve all their entitlements, and they're gonna live out another 30 years," he said. "Nobody in the history of the globe has had so many older people to deal with."

 

Hold on a minute. So we fucked all the future generations by overspending and sending trillions overseas and blew countless trillions on politicians pork projects and now people need to have babies, not because they want to have a family, it's so they can work and be taxed to fund the promises made to pay you tuesday for the hamburger you give me today. ??

 

The coronavirus pandemic is also making the problem worse — despite what some people previously thought.

"We thought, oh, we would see a baby boom. But we just haven't seen it," said Dr. David Jaspan, chair of the Department of Gynecology and Obstetrics at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia. 

Jaspan said patients are not only worried about their health, but their finances as well.

"I get a report every morning at 5:15 about what has happened in the last 24 hours. And the first report that I see is the number of deliveries in the last 24 hours," Jaspan said. "It's less than it used to be."

The Brookings Institution has predicted "a large, lasting baby bust" of at least 300,000 fewer children in 2021. 

For Laura Lindberg, who tracks reproductive data for the Guttmacher Institute, the decrease in births could be a sign of progress — a marker of women's equality and freedom of choice. 

"So it's a shift to later in life. In that shift comes more education, more career, more employment. So it's a reordering of how people engage in adulthood," Lindberg explained.

Dowell Myers doesn't disagree — but in the bigger picture, he worries the declining birth rate is also a "barometer of despair."

Myers said he never expected to be talking about a global declining birth rate during his lifetime. 

Asked what changed, he pointed to "the burdens of life."

AND FINALLY, LET'S MARGINALIZE THE BOOMERS:

"The cost of housing, the cost of education, all these things have become more and more difficult," Dowell said. "I think the boomers themselves don't realize how much harder it is for millennials today. And they think, 'Oh yeah, when we were young we had to live, you know, on very little money, and we made do, and you can do the same.' That's the story, right? Well no, it really is a lot harder for young people today. It's amazing how much harder it is."

 Those poor millenials probably all voted for Bidet.

I can't wait to live in a van down by the river and watch the world go by.

Until later  Enjoy the day!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks For The Comments In The Maff Post...

  

No time to respond to them this morning but I will get some time hopefully tonight.

FTR, I am not trained in the medical field. I realize this isn't a hoax. My belief is it came from the lab 

whether or not it was accidental is open to discussion. The timing is suspect due to the almost 

instantaneous calls for mail in ballots. I believe it was brought up in the spring of 2020 which seems 

like decades ago.

I do have first hand experience with Covid and have multiple other first hand knowledge of

others and their stories. From "Having the antibodies and never even knowing they were sick" to

Dying in a few days and everything else in between.

Thanks

I Need Some Maffs Help..maybe

 

 

 Earlier today I checked out WMUR the New Hampshire News website. Weather, local news etc.

Anyhoo, there was a banner a the top of the page that read:

 


 For whatever reason unknown to me I focused on the numbers. They seemed low compared to everything that I/we have been told. Hour after hour day after day, tick tock, wash rinse repeat.

As I'm standing there at my computer I wonder "What is the current population of NH?"

/search/  

then I searched the New Hampshire Covid stats that has this infographic:


Okay, more big numbers.

Now, being edumacated for 5 years of co-op at a Boston University and Graduating with a BSME

I figured I would do some maffs.

We'll start here:

75,990 tested positive. <Big Number right?

1,360,000 population est.

If I remember correctly to get the percentage you divide the smaller number by the larger number

and then move the decimal place 2 steps to the right. Don't ask me how Common Core does it, that

shit is fucked up.

So  75,990/ 1,360,000 = .055875    move the decimal to the right 2 steps and voila!  5.5%

5.5% of the New Hampshire population tested positive. We can get into how many were multiple 

counts, false positives, "almost, maybe" Covid etc but that's a post for another time.


Ok, let's do the deaths.


1,175/1,360,000 = .0008  < what?   move the decimal to the right 2 steps and voila! .08 percent.

According to my Chisanbop calculations above 95% of the state hasn't tested positive and you have

a 99.92% chance of not dying.

I guess it's all in how they present the facts and how the sheeple follow the Bread and Circus.

Can you imagine if the facts were presented on the positive side instead of the doom and gloom?















Damn, We Are Lucky We Made It This Far....

Moving On To Bigger Things.....

 

 After a long day at work, Irish pulls in the driveway and exits the truck into the wind and cold.

Heading to the barn he's greated with 3 hungry horses nickering, knowing that hay and grain are on the 

dining menu, again. I wish I could be happy eating the saaaaame ooooold foooood everyyyyyy daaaay.

 Fed, watered and grained I do a little tidying, bid them adieu and saunter up to the mailbox.

 It's cold and windy still but the stars are amazing. Pausing, I find Orion and then the Big Dipper and 

North Star.

If the aliens were smart they wouldn't bother coming here.

I grab the mail, junk I can tell, and head into the house with a plan of making a nice spicy chili.

 As I take off my boots and coat I notice one of the unsolicited "Current Resident" pieces of mail.

My exact words, out loud, to no one in particular were "You have got to be fucking shitting me"

The chili is on the back burner for now. I had to share this.

It's a brochure for clothing.


Uh huh... I know where this is heading...... 


Yup, flip over and.....



Let's peek inside...





Oh ya baby, sign me up.....



 I really think I need to start working on Friday Femme Fatale before I try and eat my chili....

Some People Call It Tuesday....

 

 I think it needs a new name:


  

An Arctic cold front is pushing across the area. Most of the overnight was wind gusts above 40mph

Some of them sounded like a freight train running through the yard.

Some Really Tough Questions From Our Media....

 









A Chivalrous Gent (very dry humor)--updated with shareable video

Gourmet Grunts, 1968-1970

 

Vintage Meal Combat Individual Sealed New | Foreign and International MREs


I was reading a story that mentioned a "C-ration stove". Being curious and into camping gear, I Googled the term and found several interesting pieces (the story below among them) dealing with field expedient stoves. The German Armed Forces of WW2 issued the now famous folding Esbit stove  and Esbit fuel tablets to their troops for reheating meals, warming coffee, etc. For what ever reasons, Uncle Sam failed to issue such a stove (but did for a time issue fuel for reheating) to American troops up to and through much of the Vietnam war (a canteen cup "stove" was eventually developed and issued). It did not take American soldiers in the field very long to realize they could build a small stove to heat their rations from one of the smaller "b-1" cans that were included in the boxes of C-rations. The article is not about stoves, but simply what attracted my attention. The article deals with how "grunts" in the field prepared their meals with what ingredients they had on hand to make them more palatable.  I have never eaten a C-ration, but I do not think I would care for the dreaded chopped ham and eggs (aka "The Joker")! Of course, if I am hungry I can eat most anything.

"Is This Your Will?" 10 Minute Video .... Which Led To A Video About Surveillence Capitalism.... Must watch.

 

Reader Alan sent this video:

 

 

 When it ended this next video started and dragged me in.  Scary scary times..........


One thing that was discussed was Pokemon GO where a game was used for surveillance. I remember calling this out a long time ago. Another one that I this is a horrible idea when I found out about it is the app on the iphone called Measure.  People are taking thousands and thousands of images inside their homes, businesses etc under the guise of "measuring".   This video documentary below is a must watch:

Also discussed is the hidden microphone in Google nest  >> story here<<


  

Updated.... as I put this post up I have had the above video playing in the background. There is so much information discussed regarding surveillance capitalism and how it works and who is involved.  

Eye opening.....
