Another brief check-in from Ye Olde Bloggehoste

It may not seem like it from here, but progress is indeed being made on the not-keeling-over-stone-dead front, or so I am assured by the small army of medical personnel burdened with the task of fixing my broke-down ass. In fact, some of them are so enthusiastic about my prospects as to appear almost ready to burst into song and/or go capering about in a Happy Dance over this whole thing, well over and above the usual sunny optimism a decent Bedside Manner requires.

I now have less than thirty (30) days trapped in the rehab center, while I complete a final round of IV antibiotics they tell me I simply must have. After that, I’m a free man once more, for the first time since…


Dec 14th?!? No, srsly? That CAN’T be right. Can it? Ah well, my thanks to all you miscreants once more anyhoo for your attendance, and another special mention for BCE, whose unwavering support and encouragement provides the pluperfect example of what the word “brother” really means.

Back soon. Mean it.

  1. I am very glad to see your spirits have improved.
    You had a shit load of people very worried.

    I’m also looking forward to seeing your take on current events.
    Keep getting better man, I’m rooting for you.

  2. Dec 14th

    It seems like forever. I’ve seen it on several occasions now. Older age sometimes makes a mockery of life.

    Glad your in decent spirits. That is the #1 prescription for recovery.

  3. Good to have you checking in, and glad to hear things are on an up trend. Best of luck with the remaining rehab and the medical jiggery-pokery — I’ve been there, and while it seems to last forever you will get through it.

  4. Hey that’s great!!

    Don’t worry about it. It’s not like anything important in the rest of the World has happened since Dec 14. 😉

    Btw anyone know when the Ukraine Invasion is scheduled to begin for tomorrow? I want to clear my schedule and catch the opening salvos on TV. The Revolution is going to be televised.

    1. Didn’t you get the memo (a.k.a. the media spin)? Putin was just SO intimidated by Joe Biden’s incredible strength and toughness that he backed off the invasion. Wouldn’t want to get the Corn Pop treatment, after all.

      *snort* Sorry, couldn’t keep a straight face any longer. The DNC-media actually is attempting to push that spin, right out in the open. The blatantly obvious attempt to construct a ‘heads we win, tails you lose’ narrative is actually kind of impressive in how shameless it is. Whatever else you think of them, the DNC-media is not lacking for chutzpah.

      1. I think they enjoy pushing shit we know is false, and that they know we know is false.

        Really, lead poisoning is far too good for these people. I am not opposed to torture.

        1. There is definitely something wrong with these people’s brains, at a fundamental level. As various people wrote about Bill and Hillary Clinton (and it applies to seemingly every democrat these days), they lie even when it is not necessary, when the truth would serve better. It is a compulsion; they enjoy lying.

          1. That describes my ex-wife. Possibly related, she never would (and still never does) take responsibility for anything. Very difficult to deal with.

          2. “When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse, when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.”

            Theodore Dalrymple

          1. OK, but that lasts for 30 minutes, then we go direct to skinning and salt. For the men, that starts below the belt….

      2. I’ve been wondering aloud for about 10 days now whether this is a Reverse Wag the Dog.

        The only evidence we have that Putin wants to invade Ukraine is coming from the Joetato Dolts and their Deep State “Intelligence” Agencies.

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do 'Til the Revolution

Claire's Cabal—The Freedom Forums


"There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters."
Daniel Webster

“When I was young I was depressed all the time. But suicide no longer seemed a possibility in my life. At my age there was very little left to kill.”
Charles Bukowski

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.”
Ezra Pound

“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”
Frank Zappa

“The right of a nation to kill a tyrant in case of necessity can no more be doubted than to hang a robber, or kill a flea.”
John Adams

"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
Bertrand de Jouvenel

"It is terrible to contemplate how few politicians are hanged."
GK Chesterton

"I predict that the Bush administration will be seen by freedom-wishing Americans a generation or two hence as the hinge on the cell door locking up our freedom. When my children are my age, they will not be free in any recognizably traditional American meaning of the word. I’d tell them to emigrate, but there’s nowhere left to go. I am left with nauseating near-conviction that I am a member of the last generation in the history of the world that is minimally truly free."
Donald Surber

"The only way to live free is to live unobserved."
Etienne de la Boiete

"History does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid."
Dwight D. Eisenhower

"To put it simply, the Left is the stupid and the insane, led by the evil. You can’t persuade the stupid or the insane and you had damn well better fight the evil."

"There is no better way to stamp your power on people than through the dead hand of bureaucracy. You cannot reason with paperwork."
David Black, from Turn Left For Gibraltar

"If the laws of God and men, are therefore of no effect, when the magistracy is left at liberty to break them; and if the lusts of those who are too strong for the tribunals of justice, cannot be otherwise restrained than by sedition, tumults and war, those seditions, tumults and wars, are justified by the laws of God and man."
John Adams

"The limits of tyranny are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress."
Frederick Douglass

"Give me the media and I will make of any nation a herd of swine."
Joseph Goebbels

“I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
Ronald Reagan

"Ain't no misunderstanding this war. They want to rule us and aim to do it. We aim not to allow it. All there is to it."
NC Reed, from Parno's Peril

"I just want a government that fits in the box it originally came in."
Bill Whittle
