On the Fact that Over a Thousand Irish Volunteers Fought with the Boers Against the Brits In the Second Boer War

Well, being that England had been persecuting and ethnically cleansing the Irish for centuries prior to this (Oliver Cromwell even going as far as to ship 50,000 Irish slaves to Barbados where many were worked to death - "To Hell or Barbados" by Sean O'Callaghan, great read), hard to find fault with it, I'd say.

On the Fact that the CDC's Bullshit About Outdoor COVID Transmission Was so Flagrant that Even the New York Times, THE NEW YORK TIMES, Was Forced to Point it Out (the CDC Asserting that Up to 10% of the COVID Infections Were Happening Outdoors When In Reality the Number Could Be as Low as 0.1%) - https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/11/briefing/outdoor-covid-transmission-cdc-number.html

And the way that they worded it was quite sleazy, suggesting that LESS than 10% of the infections were happening outdoors, a tactic that allowed them to be technically accurate (in a manner similar to Will Hart suggesting that LESS than a 100,000 people die from abject boredom every year while perusing CNN and MSLSD) but also permitted them to float a bullshit number to keep the panic-porn percolating (say that real fast three times). I mean, it's almost impressive (the sheer deviousness) what these assholes can come up with. If only they could harness it.

On the Fact that if You Can't Speak Out Against the Chinese Communist Party's Atrocities Toward the Uyghur Muslims and Their Jack-Booted Repression of the Citizens of Hong Kong Man Have You Ever Squandered Your Moral Authority

And unfortunately this describes a huge chunk of the political establishment, corporate press, entertainment cabal, big tech conglomerates, the educational system, and even sports. Pretty much the entire country, in other words. Great, huh?

On J.K. Rowling Getting Hundreds of Death Threats Simply for Saying that Human Beings with Penises Shouldn't Be Frequenting the Same Bathrooms with Human Beings that DO NOT

Here's how I feel. If the fellow has fully transitioned to the point where "they" more or less look like a gal most folks wouldn't say anything and there wouldn't be an issue. The rub arises when you have these grown men who look nothing like women and who've barely gotten out of the batter's box in terms of their transitioning (maybe they wear a wig) believing that they can have unfettered access to a female restroom (their private space, in other words). Perhaps that's what J.K's been harping on.

On the Fact that Pretty Much Every Tyrant In Human History Has Had a Convenient Excuse (Mostly In the Form of Guaranteeing Safety) to Suppress Liberty (Speech In Particular) and, gee, What a Surprise, Violence Tens to Occur Afterwards

Nice to know, no (as our own "benevolent" government is presently working in unison with a) big tech conglomerates to flag us for daring to think differently from a behemoth that has been lying to its underlings for well over a century and b) phone companies to also peruse our PRIVATE text messages to find similarly sinister points of view)?

On Peppermint Patty Tweeting this Little Gem Last October; "the Hunter Biden Story Is Russian Disinfo, Dozens of Intel Officials Say"

Several points. a) Nobody with an IQ over 85 truly believed that bullshit (constantly going to the Russian well, these slants). And b) these intel officials never claimed that the Hunter Biden story IS Russian disinfo, just that it had some of the characteristics of it and in fact admitted at the end of the long piece that they possessed no hard evidence for the accusation (probably hoping that the reader would only read the headline). Pure "misinformation", in other words, and oh how juicy that is, huh?

One of the Best Quartets Ever (Ralph Towner, Eberhard Weber, Jan Garbarek, Jon Christensen)

And one of their best songs ever, Nimbus. Gotta' love it.
