    A Biblical response. As hard as the left is pushing, it’s difficult not to believe they are inviting a heavy response.

    Cute exchange. But does that make Sam merely an Angel or a Goddess in herown right? I guess Zed knows to be warry of the “Goddess of Hellfire”. Canute was a brutal, powerful leader but he knew not to get beyond himself. Wise move. Some things you just can’t force. Definitely a new concept for Mia. Neither the Muslims nor the Churchians had much truck with Firey Goddesses.

      What most historians forget is that Canute’s day at the beach was to teach his courtiers a lesson.

      After they had spent days fawning over his transcendent power as King (that they wanted him to use to compel people to do things they wanted done- like pay doubled taxes), he stood in the surf for a few hours, ordering the tide to recede.

      When it didn’t, he told them “A king is only mortal. Some things only God can do.”

      From all indications, the courtiers didn’t “get it”.

      Of course, shortly thereafter, Canute did something a king could,/i> do.

      He got himself a new set of courtiers. Smarter ones.

      clear ether

        Affirm, but as he was Viking/Dane derived, his spelling ‘should be’ ‘Cnut’, but the lesson is valid, he was mocking his courtiers.

        King Cnut (the Great) [990-1035] came within a whisker of changing Europe with a Anglo-Dane Empire from Norway to England as he was monarch of Norway, Denmark, Scotland & England.

        Interesting potential for an Alt-Hist exploration!

    Is Travis still outside admiring the flag, or is he standing off screen taking in all the beauty and drama with the rest of us?

    Does the Interregnum follow after these Crazy Years? Was never clear on the dates about that… at least we’ve learned an important lesson, that King Donald for all his great intentions was not able to stop the poisoned tide. Until we find out exactly why, the same mistakes will only be made again.

    DJT – The Master of 5th dimensional chess and the true heir to Sun Tzu.
    Would Sun Tzu prance about and stage a frontal attack? Because you can’t see DJT’s warcraft means you must look more carefully. DC is deserted and the stink of death rises from the sewers. You are watching a scripted movie. There is more to the message than just the medium.

      Would love nothing more than for that to be true. But after 1 year of World As Torture Chamber all the evidence is pointing in the other direction. True, there is much we are being kept in the dark about..

      • November 10, 2021 at 11:28 am

        And much more we need to acknowledge about ourselves.
        Our present circumstances are as much a product of our neglect of Reason in Education as much as anything else. Those who have come to understand the wisdom embedded in biblical text often do so in spite of their teachers rather than because of them, and because of what was once a near universal teaching of said text enough of us actually understood that wisdom.
        Now things are worse. The old standby of the Judaeo-Christian synthesis of Biblical Knowledge and Greek Reason has been pushed aside by the willful ignorance of self-indulgence spearheaded by Greed, both Marxist and Corporate (but I repeat myself since the synthesis of Marxism and Corporatism is, by definition, Fascism).
        We must get a handle on this Tribalism thing now or face Sir Winston Churchill’s “a thousand years of darkness”.

        Late to comment, but here goes. To Xir(?) Full Woke
        There is a damned leftist from the Frankfort School of Communist (Progressive thought that left Germany to avoid the camps or after if still alive and became Columbia University’s School of Philosophy, by recruitment. Their Philosophy school; was unsatisfactory to the Trustees. They moved some to Malibu where they had a large home near he beach. Being the miserable fuknuts (their pronoun, I say) they were, in that paradise they continued in wool coats (or suits) and ties. They contributed to that and the nations destruction.
        That is a video from Columbia University in there.
        Marcuse, one of their gods, put the terms polymorphous pansexuality as a goal of societal development. People often do plan the horrors in the world.

        The wind needs to be taken out of some people’s sails, if only by removing the sails and cutting their supply chain to the wind.

      Not even Sun Tzu would hire traitors as his top generals.

      • November 10, 2021 at 12:23 pm

        Sun Tzu probably wrote: The difference between animals and man. Animals never allow the dumbest to lead the herd.

      “You are watching a scripted movie.”

      No bout adout it…

      But the writers and producers are not who you want or believe them to be.

    Or, more contemporarily, “can’t stop the signal”…

    And in this context that truth it is anything but biblical.

        As in, under it.

        My old aunt used to use that one when she had a nip or three too many also. 🙂

        OTOH, if I had to keep up this every day no days off schedule, not to mention being consistently brilliant/prophetic about it, I might be tempted to eat my gun.

      I would go back to 1911 (thereabouts) and work to undo the 16th (Income taxes) and 17th (direct election vs state selection of Senators) Amendments. If the FedGov wants taxes, pass a law that can be amended, repealed, sunset, etc vs pass a Constitutional Amendment that the only thing you can do is repeal…and damned difficult at that.

    If memory serves me correctly, the last time Cher was sexy was during the Eisenhower administration!

    • November 10, 2021 at 10:24 pm

      Sonny was the sexy one.

      Everything is relative.

    I would bet that that Kent McManigal with the Dullhawk shop in Farwell could add Sam to his “Times Up!” flag. Now I would buy one of those!
