    They don’t have an emoji for that…

    Have to deliver the message in person when the time comes.

    I don’t have a Twitter account. That’s not going to change.

    Most of what gets spewed on Twitter is idiocy designed to be provocative. There is no room for respectful debate of concepts. It’s just attack attack attack.

    I watched the Joe Rogan/Jack Dorsey/Tim Pool thang and it was clear that my decision to have nothing to do with Twitter was well founded.

    The only way these days that Libtards are going to shut people up is by turning OFF the tech.
    And it’s even too late for that. Turn off the cell towers, the tv and commercial radio, all the print media (GAK!), the internet.
    Amateur radio will still get the news in, out, and around, with or without authorized licenses.

      Been thinking about learning to use radio. Have generator, can erect antenna on 2-story house…

      That in itself will become a target. Self sufficiency in general does not serve the interests of The State.

        You’ll need an old ham radio that does not have computerized parts. Vacuum tube tech is more likely to survive EMP. OR you could invest in a Faraday cage for your computerized stuff, but then who would you talk to after theirs gets fried?

        You don’t need a tower. You need something that will attract radio waves.

        Somewhere, I have a multiband radio that could pick up shortwave from anywhere, as long as the ceiling and the heaviside layers were in the right spot. I sometimes picked up stuff that sounded like Russian, sometimes like Chinese. All that radio had for an auxiliary antenna was a long copper wire coated in plastic, which plugged into a small socket on the front.

        CB is still being used, you know. We just don’t have Smokey and Snowman boosting it to make it popular.

        And I used to know a guy whose entire ham radio rig antenna was wire hung like a huge fishing net across the upper 3 feet of one room. He could pick up convo from anywhere with that.

        You don’t need a tower.

          So many ways to set up an antenna. Have a tree or a fence line???? Just a hint.

      • Toxic Deplorable B Woodman

        I’m sure there is an amateur radio club, society, or organization near where you live. Do your research, DuckDuckGo is your friend (Gaggle nevermore). You can also look through eHam, QRZ and AARL online (could be net, org, or com). You can also take practice tests online.
        Unfortunately, to get your license, that test has to be done in person, on site.

      So your way of fighting an oppressive regime is to use tech that has been targeted by anti-radiation missiles since the Cold War?

      Meanwhile the Brits have gotten very good at surveilling the populace looking for receiver activity to catch those who aren’t paying their BBC license fees. Soon that may be automated with drone swarms that also listen for loud noises like gunshots and domestic disagreements, in the name of public safety.

      • Vince

        Who said you have to put the antenna on your place?

        • kadaka

          No one said you need an antenna on your place to be targeted.

    In the novel 1984, the idea was to reduce the number of words. Eventually people would be unable to complain because the words (concept) would not exist…for the masses. Double-plus ungood.

  • Cliff

    Does the guy have a black eye?

      I think it’s shadow, but it does look that way.

  • Olddog

    Learning to communicate by emojis will be good practice for when they have to learn Chinese.

  • Jerseygirl Angie

    So much for “net-neutrality” .

  • Delilah T.

    Illiteracy of the masses is the real goal. They talk in slang, not in English. If they are illiterate, they can’t argue with “authority” figures, can they?

    Print books are too haaard to use, so keep your print stuff out of their sight. ‘Fahrenheit 451’ was not about destroying print. It was about using your brain for something besides a doorstop. The Codetalkers did not have a written language. They had deep memories. Codetalkers were prized, once upon a time.

    Eventually, those batteries will run down and not be rechargeable. 🙂

      I still have my college textbooks, somewhere, and others with practical knowledge like home construction to the Foxfire books (no I did not reverse the words).

      When I hear how great it is that the kiddies now get their books preloaded onto tablets and things, I remember my experience was more learning where to find info in those books that I didn’t use often enough to memorize.

      And the day will come when those devices loaded with copyrighted material simply won’t power up anymore and the info can’t be retrieved.

      • TomZ.

        I was first introduced to the foxfire books in middle school in the early ’70s.

    • Delilah T.

      I still have my college chemistry book. It’s interesting what used to be included back in those days. 😉

      Just sayin’

    I’m thinking the mafia should becime the third party in the USA. They wouldnt be any worse than the progs and rinos, and would at least be effective in implementing policy.

  • billrla

    Almost no one worth communicating with, these days, anyway, aside from family and a few friends.

    • kadaka

      People are so well connected these days that they’re lonelier then ever. That’s because online feels artificial, to you I could be a chatbot. Even video chat doesn’t feel right.

      Get out, see people. Talk to strangers at the grocery store. Let yourself know there are other real people out there who could be worth the effort.

      “Our website is having trouble interacting with your ad blocking software.”

      Actually it’s the ScriptSafe blocker and you’re trying to get through 19 additional Javascripts from your domain after I temporarily allowed only msn-dot-com to run, and that would just be the first wave, and you’re freaking evil M$ and know a thousand ways to hook into a Windoze machine and extract whatever info you want, and I would have implicitly given you permission by allowing them. Plus you also use Linux and employ world-class hackers so I’m not all that comfortable looking at your site when not on a “clean” machine. Pass.

      • JTC

        Well shit no wonder I caught a virus…

        Does tie that little wave ‘toon into the context of this one, eh?

  • kadaka

    And the site is back up again, enjoy it while it lasts.

    It being down seemed extra strange as Redvolution and Time After Time urls kept working. Aren’t they on the same server?

    Emojis mean the user does not need to read, write, spell or engage in critical thought.

    Bernie Sanders on Friday morning suddenly walked into a shower door and got seven stitches.

    Bernie Sanders on Friday afternoon suddenly announced his presidential campaign is unionizing, the first presidential campaign to ever do so. What a great victory for the union bosses!

    No relation.

    • Pamela

      this will not end well for Bernie and his minions

  • crawdaddy_loon

    Ahhh memories! My dad was into amateur radio – I can still remember his call sign from over 60 years ago! W6-JFB – W6 Just Fine Business! Had the radio set up on a bench in his garage in San Matejo, California. Thank you for bringing back the memory!

    Of course a very effective way to silence free speech and the truth is to destroy those few who dare to speak publicly in opposition to their plans for destruction and domination…today Judge Jeannine is off the air at Fox for daring to question the allegiance to America of an avowed whore of islamicism.
