Thoughts On A Sunday

A tropical storm called Lee paid us a visit yesterday, though here in central New Hampshire we saw gusty winds with a little rain here and there and not much else. That wasn’t the case on the seacoast both here and in Maine which experienced higher winds, rain, and rough seas. I wish I could say there were no injuries or fatalities, but I can’t as winds caused tree limbs to fall, in one case killing a man whose car was crushed. There is a little cleanup to take care of here at The Gulch, mostly leaves and smaller branches to pick up, something that won’t take long at all.

It is still windy here though the skies are clear. I’m hoping to get out onto the lake later today after the winds diminish a bit more.


So the whole “misreading a major law of physics” kerfuffle comes down to the use of “unless” rather than “insofar as not” somehow changes Newton’s First Law of Motion is actually “much ado about nothing”.

As one commenter here wrote:

What I gather from reading the comments, Physics is better described by mathematical formula than by words.

Words are imprecise and change over time.

Indeed, particularly when translating from one language – Latin – to another – English – where the vernacular doesn’t always translate well and the meanings change over time.


Last week I wrote about how kids in high school aren’t nearly as well educated or prepared for adulthood as I and my contemporaries back in the 60’s and 70’s. It appears I’m not the only one who’s noticed people are stupider than they used to be.

I had a conversation with Irish about this kind of sh*t a short while back and the next day it dawned on me that because I am reasonably intelligent, I automatically expect most people I see are too.

This gets disproven multiple times on a daily basis anymore.

Not only are people unintelligent anymore, they are downright f*cking stupid.

It’s gotten to the point where I am questioning how they even function in society.

Then I realize that society is already completely f*cked up and now I know why.

People are illiterate, ignorant and it is very rapidly approaching the point that there is literally a good chance that civilization will collapse because of it.

They absolutely do not have the most basic knowledge that even children had fifty years ago.

Like where food comes from, how to read, count, or problem solve.

As he also mentions, this is being done on purpose. This observation was followed by this:

It looks like it’s all part of the plan by Progressives to eliminate the middle class and create a new feudal society.


The absolute gall of the White House to direct the media to “ramp up scrutiny” of the Biden impeachment inquiry.

So Texas Bush RINOs have failed to impeach AG Ken Paxton, and twice RINOs with communist Democrats failed to convict and impeach Donald Trump when he was president. But [now] that Biden is under scrutiny, it’s suddenly all bad and stuff. Biden is instructing his media lackies (sic) to ramp up scrutiny of the Biden impeachment inquiry.

President Biden’s White House has told America’s news organizations — including CNN, the New York Times and Fox News — to “ramp up their scrutiny” of House Republicans “for opening an impeachment inquiry based on lies.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) on Tuesday ordered an impeachment inquiry into the president’s alleged involvement in his son Hunter Biden’s business deals in countries such as China and Ukraine.

The evidence for the inquiry into Biden’s alleged wrongdoing is far stronger than any evidence brought forth during the two impeachment attempts against Donald Trump. Not surprising considering so much of the evidence in one of the attempts was a fabricated. But now that the tables have turned and it’s the Democrat who is the target it’s a whole different scenario.

Yeah, that’s going to go over well.


And that’s the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where we escaped the worst of Tropical Storm Lee, cleanup was easy, and where the dreaded “M” day has returned all too soon.
