Category: If This is True, it’s Not Good

Do You Trust the World Health Organization?

During the week of February 15, there was a conference in Germany called the Munich Security Conference. I’d never heard of it, but apparently it has been happening for over 50 years.

I watched some of the videos from the conference. One of them was from the president of the WHO about the coronovirus.

On February 15, 2020, he said:

“We are encouraged that outside China, we have not yet seen widespread community transmissions.”

But when you check the spread of covid-19 on February 15, 2020, it says that there are 64,000 cases in 28 countries.

That sounds like widespread community transmissions to me.

Is he lying?

And how are 500 world business and government leaders able to fly to Munich to this conference without fear of contracting this disease, including a major diplomat from China and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook?

Maybe Buy a Few Extra Things

It’s better to be prepared than scared, especially when we don’t really know what’s happening.

Just read an opinion piece that says the bond markets are indicating inflation, and possibly hyperinflation might be on the way. Maybe, maybe not. It’s quite impossible to know for sure.

The U.S. owes $trillions from their reckless spending. There are two ways to make this kind of debt go away: default or hyperinflation.

Unfortunately, savers are the ones punished when a currency is debased.

Poor Little Neonate

On the way to a farmers market in Toronto, we drive by a building with a sign that has always intrigued me, but not in a good way. It reads:



If infants are suffering from mental health issues, the state of mankind is worse than I thought. There was nothing like this when I was growing up. What happened to love and nurturing?

Stolen by screen addictions I guess.

Or maybe it’s the older generation like us who are mentally ill. Judging by the state of the world, perhaps we could have benefitted from mental health care.

In all the labs around the world, I hope they are working on a new pharmaceutical to give to newborns, where the only stated benefits are: Don’t wreck your life, or the life of another person, or the ecosystem.

The Dumbest Generation

This article is from 2008. It might actually be worse now.

I hope it isn’t true, but just in case, I am only hiring people over fifty to be my lawyer, accountant, doctor, gas appliance repairman, insurance salesperson, mechanic, vet, financial planner, and everything else I need help with.

The technocrats are starting to scare me

We probably agree that the Dark Ages, Book Burning, The Inquisition, and all other attempts at ruthless, cultural conformity were not exactly pinnacles of human progress.

If this is true, it’s not good.

What Matters More: The right to express your opinions in a peaceful manner, including unpopular and offensive ideas, or a legal right to be free from hurt feelings. You can’t have both.
