G. Gordon Liddy

I used to listen to the G. Gordon Liddy radio program, back in the 90’s, at about the same time I discovered Limbaugh. I tuned in almost every day. The thing that he said that I remember the best was during the Waco seige: “The ATF letters on their body armor make a great aiming point for a good rifle.”

Liddy will be remembered for being many things. Like most people, he was complicated and not many people know the entire person. Perhaps his wife of 53 years and their five children knew him best. Mr. Liddy died yesterday, he was 90 years old, and I have no doubt that he was a patriot. I cannot say the same thing about his son, who was a big part of the stolen election of last year.

Quote of the week

In honor of our loss of one of the greatest speakers of my lifetime, I present to you Rush Limbaugh’s quote of the week:

The people that make this country work, the people who pay on their mortgages, the people getting up and going to work, striving in this recession to not participate in it, they’re not the enemy. They’re the people that hire you. They’re the people that are going to give you a job.

What a douche

An employee of Peachtree City’s A OK Walker Autoworks quit in November. His former boss was not happy about it, and refused to issue the final paycheck. After months of back and forth, the employee went to the Georgia Department of Labor and filed a complaint. Soon thereafter, the former employee found a mound of over 90,000 pennies on the end of his driveway with a pay stub on top. The pennies had all been covered in grease.

The owner of the garage refuses to admit that he was the one who did it, but the business posted this on their social media page:

I am certain that this guy is a great boss, and it was a joy to work there. If this is the childish and vindictive way he treats former employees, just imagine how well he treats his customers.

Since he is now not admitting that the grease soaked pennies were his doing, I would guess that he still owes the employee his final paycheck.

Quote of the week

In honor of our loss of one of the greatest speakers of my lifetime, I present to you Rush Limbaugh’s quote of the week:

Now, what is the left’s worldview in general? What is it? If you had to attach not a philosophy but an attitude to a leftist worldview, it’s one of pessimism and darkness, sadness. They’re never happy, are they? They’re always angry about something. No matter what they get, they’re always angry.

Monopoly goes woke

Hasbro is rewriting the Community Chest cards for Monopoly in order to be more woke. I read them, and it is nauseating. Some examples:

  • You volunteer to paint a mural at your local school. Collect $50
  • You volunteer at your local literacy center and learn some fun phrases in a new language! Collect $100
  • You help a local school build a playground- and you get to test the slide! Collect $100
  • You graciously host a group of international students. They appreciate the home cooking! For each house you own, pay $40. For each hotel you own, pay $115.
  • You didn’t shop local! Pay $50
  • You found a wallet on the ground and decided not to return it. Go to jail, go directly to jail. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200
  • You held a neighborhood party- but didn’t recycle your trash. Pay $100
  • You volunteer to run the social media accounts for a non-profit art center, and you meet some pretty talented people. Collect $100

Woke garbage. Still, who plays board games any more?

The Cloud

I wonder if most people realize that “the cloud” is really just someone else’s computer?

My opinion on digital currency

When you own a digital currency, what do you own? You own a digital certificate, no different than a piece of paper. There is nothing preventing there from being more made. Yes, I know that the largest of the digital currencies- Bitcoin- has a limit of 21 million units.

With that being said, here are the reasons why digital currency is a bad idea:

  • It has no intrinsic value. You can’t eat it, wear it, or heat your house with it. Unlike gold — which at least feels nice and looks shiny on your spouse’s ring finger — you can’t even see Bitcoin.
  • It is not a productive asset. It’s not a factory that produces an item. It’s not a field that produces cucumbers. It’s not a firm that offers a service. It contributes nothing to society.
  • It has zero underlying value. None. It’s not backed by land or commodities or — as with national currencies like USD or GBP — the threat of violence
  • It has minimal utility. Because the price fluctuates so wildly (what healthy currency doubles in a month?), it’s virtually ineffective as a safe representation of value or means of trade.
  • Its value is solely derived from the trust that the price will continue to rise indefinitely. That there will always be new investors to buy out the old ones.

This makes it no better than owning paper gold. It’s mathematically impossible for Bitcoin to grow forever, this can only have one final outcome: A Black Swan event causes its demise as an investment. Perhaps a superior cryptocurrency makes Bitcoin as irrelevant as the Model T versus a Tesla. Perhaps nations or groups of nations make a concerted effort to destroy Bitcoin, or more likely, Bitcoin owners. Or maybe Bitcoin simply levels out when it reaches max coinage, shedding its identity as an investment and becoming a stable trust-based currency. In doing so, it will drive away all the exuberant speculators who are currently propping up its inflated price. No matter how it happens, at some point, millions of Bitcoin investors are going to lose billions of dollars.

Military attack

Can you picture what would have happened had a member of the military said the same about Rachael Maddow during the Trump administration?

But remember “The military would NEVER fire on its own citizens.”
