    Not sure I'd call it a right. A consequence of war, yes. A right is a just claim. Given Russia's flaw in all this, it would be a stretch for me to accept that Russia can justly claim authority to do as you suggest. But being as this is war, where no matter how much lipstick we put on that pig, it is still a breach of moral prerogative. What a shame people are such assholes... just consider what a great life it could be for very much the most of us, were we to simply stop trying to hard to be douches. For a species so unforgivably lazy as ours, we sure do work exhaustively at being dicks.

    Did the Ukrainians start the shooting war? If no, then given what Russia has done, can you blame them from retaliating? The fact that anyone would trust either the Poles or Romanians with such weapons is prima facie proof of raving insanity and depthless corruption. American "government"... there are no words.

    Ah, I see where I misunderstood. Your statement was semantically vague in its construction. It could be interpreted in at least two wholly different ways. To wit: "no country has ever attacked a nation by using nuclear weapons", or "no country has ever attacked a nation who possessed nuclear weapons". I interpreted you as meaning the former while, I assume, you meant the latter. In this case we were both correct, each working under differing assumptions.

    That's a very big "if". For one thing, is it established that Ukraine would lob missiles into Russia at America's command? NATO's? If China were murdering American expats in MX, well that is tough for them. The moment you leave American soil, you assume the risks of leaving American soil. That isn't to say the "government" is not behooved to help you, but only that such help is perforce much diminished in nature and degree from that which it owes you while you remain within the boundaries of America. I would also point out that Russia made this bed for themselves over the 75 years that those scurrilous cretins wreaked havoc upon not only their own people, but during the forty+ years during which they terrorized, murdered, and brutally oppressed the people of the so-called "bloc" nations. So pardon me if I say "fuck Russia and the dildos they rode in on". Were Russia to simply die tonight in its sleep, I'd shed no tear. Could say the same for the American "government" as well. This is no defense of Ukraine, mind you. They are also cretinous vermin whose stoogery has, as you point out, put gasoline on the fire that has helped lead to war. They are both scum and you will have to dance mightily and craftily to convince me otherwise. I don't give a rat's hole if they kill each other, but when they threaten the rest of us with dangerous talk of using nukes, that about tears it for me. I'd now see Russia buried, right along with the rest of the entire Asian and European continents. They are certifiable. The one thing I can say in favor of the Americans is that they are generally too stupid and apathetic to want to get involved in anything so idiotic as such what goes on between the parties in question. Granted, it's a thinly marginal improvement, but given how stoopid the world is these days, one takes his blessings where he may find them, and be thankful regardless of how small they may prove.

    While I agree that nobody in fact wants a nuclear war, words have a way of shaping reality. Consider those two rocket surgeons in NJ some decades ago, one 21 and the other 17, who got to talking about what it would be like to murder someone. I'm sure that when the conversation began neither of them had the least intention of murdering anyone. And yet, as the conversation progressed, their minds changed by mechanisms I've speculated on at some length. The next thing, those two imbeciles ordered a pizza to be delivered to an abandoned house where they laid in wait and shot the delivery man. My point is that things can get away from us with frightening ease and rapidity, especially when our word choices run afoul of basic sanity. That the idiot Putin seems so casually willing to hint at nuclear exchange could easily obviate the fact that people generally have no interest in engaging in such events. Shit spirals, which is why in ages past diplomats always chose their words with great care. As many hundreds of millions of lives were lost in the twentieth century, verbal restraint by diplomats likely saved a whole lot more. Words are important; the wrong words can cause the world to blow up, so Vladimir is being not only a real dick here, he's seems to be showing a sissy side. Love them or hate them, one cannot blame the Ukrainians for striking back. Seems Vlad is having piss because of it. Him and the dildo he rode in on.

    Just to be clear, we have two wholly different issues here. The first is, just kill yourself. Badness, 100% agree. The second, however, is justifiable: ending one's life as a matter of willed choice (v. coerced) under circumstances. I just buried my... Well, my mom's man. They weren't married so I hesitate to call him a "step-father". I'll just call him John. He worked at US Metals for long years as an equipment operator. All his friends and colleagues died long ago from heavy metal poisoning. John contracted cancer that metastasized. His last days were grim. Imagine pain so intense that while in a deep coma, you are hanging on to the bed rails, grimacing. This was not treat to witness, either. If I hated someone enough to want to squeeze the life from him with my bare hands, I would not wish such a thing as John's fate on them. He asked to be killed, this coming from a 6' 2" Hungarian dirt farmer who loved life. Had I been able to do it without going to prison for the rest of my life, I'd like to think I'd have had the sand to go through with it. And know you that I'd considered it quite seriously, the thought appalling and repellant, but a worthy act that I'd shrunk from due to the legal threats to my being. So for cases such as this, I am 100% in favor of assisted suicide. Nobody should have to go through what I watched John endure back in this October just past.

    Your prerogative. I'm neutral on him, neither a detractor nor sycophant. He did some good, failed significantly at other things. Then you are not using your brain properly. The simple fact that so much hanky panky was uncovered should at least have you on the fence. Trump probably won by a landslide, but at this point we may never know the truth. But to unequivocally imply he lost is first-order foolery. There was very little that was clean about the 2020 elections, just as has been the case in 2022. Theye are waggling their balls on the end of your tongue and you're not moving it.

    A friend just tossed this at me. The plaintiff is suing everyone from Biden on down, nearly 400 respondents. I don't know how unique is the approach here, but I've not seen it before. Every assertion plaintiff makes appears to my eyes to be valid, which if so, places SCOTUS into something of a corner. I cannot see SCOTUS agree to hear the case as it would necessitate a ruling. The only valid opinion would result in the removal of every respondent from office and barring them for life from holding any position of Special Trust. This, of course, would throw a gigantic wrench in Theire works, and so therefore I cannot see SCOTUS giving it a hearing as there seems to be no upside for them. Refusing to hear the case would also stand to damage their credibility, but not nearly to the same degree. Therefore, having been painted into a tight corner by an apparently clever plaintiff, their least painful option would be to demur. If they choose to hear it, I would be more than a little surprised. OTOH, I suppose there is the possibility that SCOTUS might decide to make lemonade form this lemon by handing down some outrageously wrong ruling that would potentially forever codify Theire ability to do whatever the hell they please with utter impunity and in the open. It's anyone's guess what will happen here, but I will keep an eye on this one with some anticipation and curiosity. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ https://www.supremecourt.gov/DocketPDF/22/22-380/243739/20221027152243533_20221027-152110-95757954-00007015.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2A5dEiWxqtKdQfoXD3_NJfpcpjmPvKh0vsIe1I0AW-BjVyv09Ob86qVPk

    The continuing saga of our stupid lives brought a new twist about three weeks ago. Bibi, my fantastic wife, mowed a large buck on I-64 just west of Covington VA on her way home. Her '17 Camry was destroyed with every airbag in the vehicle set off, about a dozen in all. She got banged up real good with huge and nasty bruises on her arms, most notably. The culprit was not the impact with the deer, but the damned airbags themselves. She called me up around 9PM and I drove out to get her at the ER. Nothing broken, but she got knocked around something good. Now for the weird part. As I believe I may have mentioned here in a different post relating to the exploits of my hausfrau, Bibi is one of the most rational and down-to-earth people you will ever meet. She is in no way given to exaggeration or flights of fancy, so when she tells me things that are, erm... weird, I listen. She told me that when she impacted the deer, the brakes and steering immediately stopped working, 100%. There was nothing, quite literally. She hit the creature at about 70 mph, so the impact was severe. The bags were deployed, she could see nothing, had no control over the vehicle, and yet it stopped ON ITS OWN on the shoulder, as if put there with some care. Just like that she went from a high speed <BANG!> to a dead stop, parked neatly out of the traffic flow. Anyone have any speculations as to what happened there? Thus far the only response I've gotten from about a dozen people has been "God". Anyone have anything different, or is that to be the consensus? Any input is appreciated.

    I felt this was a bad deal from the start. I'm unvaxxed and shall remain so. United required Bibi to get the jab. She very quietly put it off and off and off until United stopped requiring it, so at least in that regard she is relatively safe. Our friend Carlos got the jab and now has a ruined heart. It is getting marginally better, but will probably never be quite right again. For awhile we feared he would die. There is no other bug in all recorded history that has acted as does this one. This effort to do something to the global population is barely veiled at all. The amazing thing to witness here has been the sheer power of normalcy bias. People don't want to see, and so long as even the thinnest pretext exists, they will refuse reality that proves inconvenient to their coward's need for a sense of being safe, regardless of how false it may be.

    As a student of Japanese martial arts, I have come to have a sense of the culture. Japanese people tend very much away from direct speech, as it is deemed rude, inelegant, and a source of great discomfort for them. So when a Japanese professional man becomes direct, you know something is going way tight. Get a load of this doctor going at it about the covid "vaccine". This is so out of character for the Japanese, I had a moment of cognitive dissonance as I watched. 1597708474519289857

    It will be interesting to see how Americans respond to any call for a return to 2020. It will be similarly interesting to see how Theye respond if perchance Americans don't take the bait. "...closing these schools, ruining these kids' lives... depression, suicide, went through the roof when..." This statement, if true, should be a gigantic red flag to anyone seeing it. How could this be so? Depression from not going to school? If this is the case, it signals a fundamental alteration in the makeup of the mean child. To become so utterly dependent on so artificial an environmental factor as this strikes me as freakish. When I was a kid, had I no longer had to go to school, I would have been relieved and overjoyed. I'd have learned the world far better than I would have in school, a place I despised with no limit. Other than my sixth-grade teacher, who cared enough to teach me the fundamentals of differential calculus, the rest could have died in house fires and I would have cared not. Except for my friend Steve, may God bless his good soul, I can say the same for the people with whom I was forced to share my days as students. Most were mean, petty, and nasty, largely because that's how kids tend to be when kept in large groups in an inherently toxic environment. I can only imagine what "through the roof" means in absolute numbers when compared with those prior to the engineered event.
