9 Great New Jobs For Laid-Off Oil And Gas Workers

From The Babylon Bee:

President Biden is doing a great job getting rid of evil sources of energy like coal and gas, and replacing them with good energy– like wind, solar, and baby unicorn whispers. Unfortunately, it seems that some of you may have lost your jobs as a result. Never fear! Biden has promised to replace your jobs with much better jobs that don’t make Mother Gaia cry.

Here are 9 exciting new opportunities for laid-off oil and gas workers:

#1 Installing urinals in girls’ bathrooms – There are over 120 million buildings in the US. That’s 120 million girls’ bathrooms that will need a new urinal installed for the sake of equality. Not bad!

#2 Trumpet boy for Biden’s royal decrees – Biden’s executive orders just seem a little more special with a trumpet boy out front heralding the coming of a new decree! Whitehouse.gov recently posted an opening for this position. Get on it!

#3 Elementary school teacher in Chicago – There’s nothing nobler than working for the education of a child. Well– we don’t mean work, we mean get paid by the government just for existing. Not a bad gig.

#4 Carry buckets of oil up and down the Continental United States on foot – The Keystone XL pipeline may be gone, but that oil has to get to its destination somehow, Jack! There are thousands of new positions opening up for people to carry oil across the country, balanced on their heads, like tribal natives after fetching water at the village well. Start practicing now!

#5 Take that job at McDonald’s –  Might as well. At this rate, the minimum wage will be $45 an hour by the years’ end.

#6 Open a GameStop – It’s the wave of the future!

#7 Go back in time and buy bitcoin – Just do it. Get off your butt, build a time machine, and buy some Bitcoin in 2009. Accomplish something for once!

#8 Replace all your body parts with cyborg implants and become an Amazon drone – Helicopter arms!!! Literally no downside to this.

#9 Become a youth pastor – Hardly any work required.

Hang in there, bucko! There’s plenty of opportunity out there!

Gunning for Patriots, by Becky Akers

Is the incoming administration going to propagandize the populace that America is under siege from the right wing, who must be relieved of their guns? From Becky Akers at lewrockwell.com:

NPR recently aired a screed masquerading as news on the “demonstrations” that will mar the Usurper’s inauguration. The network alleged that after the “insurrection” on January 6, “law enforcement” is on high alert for “violence,” not only in DC but in the states’ capitals, too. Stern rulers warned that they will tolerate no rampages, and anyone planning to misbehave should realize that thousands of Leviathan’s enforcers stand ready to arrest him.

The New York Slimes broadcast similar, though shorter, propaganda over its former affiliate, WQXR. So did ABC News. You probably heard the same drivel from your favorite station, too.

Listening to these knuckleheads, you’d never suspect that most of the violence in DC came from the government. Its minion murdered an unarmed woman (though not an innocuous one: Ashli Babbitt’s libertarian ideals made her a threat to any Marxist regime!). But to hear the corporate media tell it, Patriots lust to imitate BLM’s riots from this summer. Ergo, we’re stockpiling arsenals and planning mayhem next week.

No Posting Tonight

I had a bicycle accident and had to go to the emergency room for stitches in my head. I’m okay and back home but I won’t be posting tonight. Assuming a quick recovery I’ll resume posting tomorrow.

Whispers in the Wind, by Kym Robinson

The US is a war empire and will remain such regardless of the election. From Kym Robinson at libertarianinstitute.org:

As the fiasco of U.S. democracy shreds at any sense of dignity the world watches on and pretends that the health of the American empire is vibrant, the opinionated social media activist and the interested expert all find outrage in the moment.  Biden and Trump drips from the chanting lips of those who are storming the halls of political might. Far in distant lands, inside the obedient nations of the American empire heads of state read out words of support and condemnation. Outraged citizens from abroad criticise the ousted president, or they cheer for him to troll from the platform of twitter. The social media giants had long ago shown their loyalties as they ban and limit elements of some perspectives of very much the same political monstrosity. But in the end, does it change anything?

The outraged and protesting tug and pull for the reigns of rule. The mob that failed at the sort of works democracy now reveals itself as just that violent destructive blob of people who want more control, want more influence and want a government that does things for them often against others. Whether it is proud boys, ANTIFA, MAGA or BLM the government as it stands really does not change that much, perhaps ‘Amen’ is switched to ‘Awomen’ and pronouns are balanced with some sensitivity or maybe the jingoists get another minority group to blame for the decay of Western or American civilisation. But in the end the empire is ever present abroad and at home.

Children’s Hospitals Grapple With Wave of Mental Illness, by Carmen Heredia Rodriguez

Lockdowns have been a disaster for vulnerable children. From

(Archv/Getty Images)

Krissy Williams, 15, had attempted suicide before, but never with pills.

The teen was diagnosed with schizophrenia when she was 9. People with this chronic mental health condition perceive reality differently and often experience hallucinations and delusions. She learned to manage these symptoms with a variety of services offered at home and at school.

But the pandemic upended those lifelines. She lost much of the support offered at school. She also lost regular contact with her peers. Her mother lost access to respite care — which allowed her to take a break.

On a Thursday in October, the isolation and sadness came to a head. As Krissy’s mother, Patricia Williams, called a mental crisis hotline for help, she said, Krissy stood on the deck of their Maryland home with a bottle of pain medication in one hand and water in the other.

Before Patricia could react, Krissy placed the pills in her mouth and swallowed.

What Vaccine Trials? by Iain Davis

Few people are aware that the Covid-19 vaccines that have been approved have only gone through about a third of the safety and efficacy trials that vaccines usually undergo. From Iain Davis at off-guardian.org:

The most important, meaningful phase of CV-19 vaccine trials has barely begun, let alone been completed

COVID 19 vaccine trials appear to have caused some confusion. Hopefully, this article might help clear things up a bit. People genuinely appear to believe that the COVID 19 vaccines have undergone clinical trials and have been proven to be both safe and effective. That belief is simply wrong.

The main point is this. If you decide to have Pfizer and BioNTech’s experimental mRNA-based BNT162b2 (BNT) vaccine, or any other claimed COVID 19 vaccine for that matter, you are a test subject in a drug trial.

The mRNA in the BNT vaccine was sequenced from the 3rd iteration of the original WUHAN published Genome SARS-CoV-2 (MN908947.3). However, the WHO protocols Pfizer used to produce the mRNA do not appear to identify any nucleotide sequences that are unique to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. When investigator Fran Leader questioned Pfizer they confirmed:

The DNA template does not come directly from an isolated virus from an infected person.

Nor are there any completed clinical trials for these vaccines. Trials are ongoing. If you are jabbed with one, you are the guinea pig. This may be fine with you but it’s not a leap of faith I or my loved ones wish to take. However, everyone is different.

On December the 8th the BBC reported a study in the Lancet and categorically stated:

The Oxford/AstraZeneca Covid vaccine is safe and effective, giving good protection, researchers have confirmed

The BBC had no justification to make this claim. The study in the Lancet did not confirm anything of the sort. The researchers wrote:

ChAdOx1 nCoV-19 has an acceptable safety profile and has been found to be efficacious against symptomatic COVID-19 in this interim analysis of ongoing clinical trials.

No Posting Today and a Thought on Garbage

This will be the only post today, but regular posting will resume tomorrow.

On another matter, at the end of “The Gray Curtain Descends, Part One” I promised Part Two this week. I had an article all ready for final editing and posting today, but reading through it last night I realized it was mostly garbage. It happens sometimes. I would suggest that writers don’t become good writers until they develop the ability to spot their own garbage and then do something about it. I try to make sure my garbage ends up in my computer’s trash bin and not on SLL or, if it’s a book, on Amazon. I’d rather break a promise (I hate writing to deadlines, even my own) than post garbage and I don’t want to get the new year off to a bad start. I’m going back to the drawing board and the article will be ready when it’s ready.

Thank you for your patience and Happy New Year.

Robert

Happy New Year!

Here’s hoping everyone has a happy and prosperous new year, and thanks to you all for making 2020 SLL’s best year ever.
