Radio Free Ukraine Imperfect Intercept, Steaming Hatred For Murderous Invaders & Robbers

English Translation Of President’s Secret Speech

Garbled fragments of a secret, short-wave Ukrainian broadcast were intercepted and roughly translated into English. Who can doubt the bitter, unrelenting hatred and contempt of the Ukrainian president for his adversaries?

Garish, unworldly red light from the flames of a Russian-bombed children’s hospital cast the only light. Flanked by his personal bodyguard, the Ukrainian president savagely lashed out at Russian invaders and their crime boss. Extreme language justified by thousands of vicious Russian murders, widespread destruction, and despicable war crimes.

Execrable Excerpts From “Red Sermon” Begin Short-Wave Radio Intercept Translation

But as I stand here tonight, equality and democracy are under assault. We do ourselves no favor to pretend otherwise. Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal.

Putin and the Russians represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.

Now, I want to be very clear— very clear up front: not every Communist, not even the majority of Russians, are Communist. Not every Communist embraces their extreme ideology.

But there is no question that the Communist party today is dominated, driven, and intimidated by Putin and the Russians, and that is a threat to this country.

These are hard things. Russians do not respect… do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people.

They’re working right now… to give power to partisans and cronies, empowering election deniers… Communist forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to a Ukraine where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy…

Russians promote authoritarian leaders, and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country.

Russians look at the mob that stormed Ukraine not as invaders who placed a dagger to the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots. Putin and the Russians are, quote, a “clear and present danger”.

And, folks, it is within our power, it’s in our hands — yours and mine — to stop the assault on Ukrainian democracy.

And now Ukraine must choose: to move forward or to move backwards? To build the future or obsess about the past? To be a nation of hope and unity and optimism, or a nation of fear, division, and of darkness?

Russians have made their choice. They embrace anger. They thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth but in the shadow of lies.

History tells us that blind loyalty to a single leader and a willingness to engage in political violence is fatal to democracy. We’re all called to confront extremists who will put their own pursuit of power above all else.

We must be stronger, more determined, and more committed to saving Ukraine than Russians are to destroying Ukraine.

Today, there are dangers around us we cannot allow to prevail. [M]ore and more talk about violence as an acceptable political tool in this country. It’s not. It can never be an acceptable tool.

So I want to say this plain and simple: there is no place for political violence in Ukraine. Period. None. Ever.

We saw… brutal attacks. We’ve seen election officials… subjected to intimidation and death threats. And — can you believe it? — State agents just doing their job as directed, facing threats to their own lives from their own fellow citizens.

On top of that, there are public figures — today, yesterday, and the day before — predicting and all but calling for mass violence and rioting in the streets.

This is inflammatory. It’s dangerous. It’s against the rule of law. And we, the people, must say: this is not who we are.

We can’t allow violence to be normalized in this country. It’s wrong. We each have to reject political violence with — with all the moral clarity and conviction this nation can muster. Now.

We can’t let the integrity to be undermined, for that is a path to chaos.

Look, I know poli- — politics can be fierce and mean and nasty. Only if we, the people, see politics not as total war but mediation of our differences.

Democracy cannot survive when one side believes there are only two outcomes to an election: either they win or they were cheated. And that’s where Russians are today.

They don’t understand what every patriotic Ukrainian knows: you can’t love your country only when you win. It’s fundamental.

I will not stand by and watch — I will not — the will of the Ukrainian people be overturned by wild conspiracy theories and baseless, evidence-free claims of fraud.

I will not stand by and watch elections in this country stolen by people who simply refuse to accept that they lost.

I will not stand by and watch the most fundamental freedom in this country — the freedom to vote and have your vote counted — and — be taken from you and the Ukrainian people.

Look, as your president, I will defend our democracy with every fiber of my being, and I’m asking every Ukrainian to join me.

Throughout our history, Ukraine has often made the greatest progress coming out of some of our darkest moments, like you’re hearing in that bullhorn.

Russians look at Ukraine and see carnage and darkness and despair. They spread fear and lies –- lies told for profit and power.

The cynics and the critics tell us nothing can get done, but they are wrong.

It’s never easy. But we’re proving that in Ukraine, no matter how long the road, progress does come.

Proving that from darkness — the darkness of covid, of gun violence, of invasion — we can see the light.

The Russians believe that for them to succeed, everyone else has to fail. Notwithstanding those folks you hear on the other side there. Russian Communists are entitled to be outrageous. This is a democracy. But history and common sense — good manners is nothing they’ve ever suffered from.

But history and common sense tell us that opportunity, liberty, and justice for all are most likely to come to pass in a democracy.

We have never fully realized the aspirations of our founding, but every generation has opened those doors a little wider to include more people who have been excluded before.

My fellow Ukrainians, Ukraine is an idea. It gives hate no safe harbor. We need everyone to do their part. So speak up. Speak out. Get engaged. Fight, fight, fight.

Correction-Correction-Correction

Pals Pooh-Pooh Purported Presidential Plagiarism

Sorry! Sorry! Sorry! Sad Blunder

Excusable error? Blushing blunder? Confounding confusion? We must apologize. We had heard that the Ukrainian President vented his spleen against pillaging Russian Communists as above. But the Ukrainian President showed some class and refused to spew such a piss-and-vinegar rant. Heaping abuse, however well-deserved, would make peace impossible. After all, at the end of the day, Russia and Ukraine are on the same continent.

But the venomous, vicious “Red Sermon” was not wasted. A pusillanimous presidential politician, renowned for polishing his prestige by purloining and plagiarizing other people’s positions, was prepared to publish this scandalous screed. With minor alterations. And his target? Foreign Invaders? Space Aliens? Dr. Evil? S.P.E.C.T.R.E.? Oh no… The victims of his invective were none of those. He bitterly condemned his own fellow countrymen. And women. And anyone else who dared decline, dissent, or demur. And you thought “Protest is Patriotic”. Ha. Ha. Not anymore.

Who is this bombastic blowhard? Unknown, for now. Top men are working on this mystery. Top. Men. In the meantime, consider: Who would wantonly wallow in this cesspool of depravity? Who could speak of his erstwhile friends and neighbors with such vituperation? Who would seek to sow such discord, disagreement, and disharmony? Who would snap the mystic chords of memory and drive off the better angels of our nature as a cheap political ploy? Who?

Deepest, sincere apologies to the Ukrainian President for inadvertently casting him in this role.

What do these graphs mean? Misery. Why? Because prices are continuing to increase at historic rates. Wholesale prices are up over 15%. Consumer prices are pushing 10%. Who do you believe? Preaching politicians or the cashier at the grocery store and gas station? Your taxes paid for public servants to compile these numbers. Maybe you should take a look at them.

You already get this. But maybe, perhaps some other folks would learn something? Just the facts, ma’am. Just the facts.

Multi-Verse Of Madness? A Random Walk Through The Valley Of The Shadow Of Incompetence

The Original Three Stooges, At Least, Were Funny

Why is our world run by 3 old men with health issues and questionable mental capability? Three geezers with sufficient atomic and hydrogen bombs to erase humanity? Two of them with sugar plum visions of long-lost imperial splendor dancing in their heads. Willing to slaughter other folks wholesale. Two greedy, stuffed-up potentates. Dozens of minor characters in supporting roles have similar grandiose cloud cuckoo land delusions. Complete the picture with a cast of thousands eager to murder for earthly paradise.

Is it surprising that totalitarian tyrannies spew forth thieving tyrants? Isn’t that pretty much what they do? Murder, conquest, plunder, looting, and pillaging are part and parcel of the tyrannical deal. Successful crime proves that the “mandate of heaven” rests on the tyrant.

A couple hundred years ago, a few, very few, people decided to chart a different course. To depend on one another. And vigorous, unrestrained debate. Government based on the consent of the governed. A radical idea that regular folks had something to say. A nation free of tyrants. Composed of free people. Thinking, speaking, and acting freely. Naturally, “smart” people have been desperately fighting against this dangerous idea ever since.

The good and the wise know that too much talking is bad for the peasants. Commoners need a Ministry of Truth, Commission for the Public Good, Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, “Disinformation Governance Board.” Intellectual leading lights from Ivy League universities must ensure you do not think the wrong thoughts or say the wrong words. Or hear anyone who does.

Can the third decrepit old gentleman really be blamed for much of anything? As a two-bit grifting politician, he sold out for cheap long ago. Enabling family members’ dirty dealing with foreign countries and powerful corporations. Selling influence and access. Kickbacks to the “big guy”. Penniless politician to Bruce Wayne multimillionaire. His only surviving son condemned to a maelstrom of drugs and paid-for sex. Pitiful really. Charley McCarthy in the White House. Merely a marionette. Pathetic puppet, dancing to strange tunes.

Yet this superannuated reprobate has performed a valuable service. He proved the obvious: when America retreats, tyranny fills the void. Ask Finland. Ask Sweden. Two countries with centuries of neutrality. Comfortably secure under the American umbrella. Until now. Today they frantically clamor to join the NATO Neighborhood Watch.

Harry Potter Is To Blame!
Or Maybe It Is Doctor Strange’s Fault

Remember the Marvel superhero movie, Ironman? A science guy builds himself a metal suit that flies and blows bad guy stuff up. Cool. Remember Spiderman? Radioactive spider bite, science-science, teenager with spider powers.

Beats bad guys up. Even Superman had the whole red sun/yellow sun science explanation for superpowers. Not anymore. Today superheroes are all magic.

Remember the Harry Potter books and movies? How about the vampire and werewolf books and movies? Say or think the right thing and stuff just happens. All magic. All the time. Magical!

Have you noticed that magical thinking has taken over? Men become women by simply saying so. You don’t even need a fancy spell. Or surgery. Why tampons in the Mens Room? Because men now menstruate. And give birth. How does a man have ovaries and a uterus? Perhaps it helps to start as a woman. Astounding new world records in women’s sports? Perhaps starting as a man helps. Not even Supreme Court Justices can tell the difference. Abracadabra indeed!

Imagine an old, broken-down horse. Shabby. Weak. Shuffling. Re-living its days as a foal. Kept around from pity. Would you enter that horse in the Kentucky Derby? Or the county fair? You might if you believed in the power of magical thinking. You would just tell yourself, and everyone else, that your nag is really a thoroughbred racehorse at the peak of its powers. And if anyone disagreed, you and your friends could shout them down. Fairness requires hobbling all the other horses, since their actual talents and abilities are “unfair” to the nag. Who would enjoy such a race? What would the outcome be?

Is it ridiculous to think that magical thinking in the real world leads to disaster across the board? Would you like to drive across a magical bridge? Live in a magical apartment house? Why not? It’s only fair.

Magical Thinking: Consequences

BASIC PRICE INFLATION. In April 2022, the United States failed to set a new 40-year record high for inflation. At least it stayed above 8%, though, so all of you buying groceries on your credit cards… keep it up, you will have to…

Ivy League Necromancers first blamed the magic inflation on too many people buying treadmills. Then Congressional Conjurers claimed it was temporary. Next Sorcerers Senatorial blamed it on Russia’s Mad Monk Rasputin. Now our trusted Thaumaturges assert something else, but frankly, we have lost track.

Good News! The Ginger Oracle’s Replacement says Inflation will be cured! By raising taxes. We swear we are not making this stuff up. Here is what the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics says:

MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES. Mortgage rates continue to astonish, but the American Dream lives! “Homebuyers continue to show resilience even though rising mortgage rates are causing monthly payments to increase by about one-third as compared to a year ago,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s Chief Economist. Thank you, Sam! Great to see our public servants serving the public!

Hey Home Sellers! Interest rate increases caused monthly payments go up by ONE-THIRD… Could HOME PRICES be affected? What do YOU think? Can you pull a Homebuyer out of a hat? You may have to….

ONE MILLION DEAD FROM ELDER PLAGUE. Do you remember a politician who claimed he would stop COVID? Neither does the Washington Post. Or New York Times. Or the politician himself. He even forgot he was vaccinated. Oh well. Elections are supposed to be magic!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than a MILLION AMERICANS have died from the virus of unknown origin. Widespread hysteria about the kids was manufactured by people who did not go to work, but still got paid. Fortunately for the children, the virus of unknown origin DOES NOT (hardly at all) KILL KIDS, but it is deadly to older folks. Almost exclusively.

From the very beginning the Reporter has described COVID as the “Elder Plague.” And that has NEVER changed. Here’s the current official CDC chart. Notice anything about deaths among kids ages 0-17? 0-29?

NEW RUSSIAN BEACH FRONT RESORT. In Ukraine, on the Black Sea, is a steel plant. You may have heard of it. Bombed for months. Blasted to smithereens. Now your best Russian friend and mine, Crazy Vlad, is repurposing this fixer-upper opportunity as beach resort. Come for Time Share Presentation, leave with new set of steak knives! Wow! Magic solves everything, no?

TOP 10 AMERICAN THEME PARKS. Because inquiring minds want to know, USA Today, a “newspaper” asked regular folks which were the BEST THEME PARKS. #1 is an aquarium which used to have whales in a tank, but not anymore. Winners include a brewery-sponsored park, another that smells like chocolate, and two with country music themes. But the “Happiest Place on Earth” was shut out. Maybe normal folks have had enough of rich people insults. Maybe, finally, “Ladies and Gentlemen! Boys and Girls! Children of All Ages!” isn’t the only thing headed for the garbage dump. Did they think they could magically wish away their customers? Guess so!

Why Can’t You Live In The Magic Kingdom?

Why are the magical thinkers so unhappy? Why does everything they touch turn to crap? Why are they angry? Why are they unable to hear anyone but themselves?

Are you opposed to living in the real world? Are you against your actions having consequences? Do you live to blame other people for your own faults and failings? Do the real abilities and accomplishments of others fill you with jealousy and rage? Are you so special that the world owes you a living? Are you a precious snowflake that all must admire? Are you happy and secure in your own talents and abilities and appreciative of others? Does Magical Thinking work for you? Do you think it would work for your kids?

Is it ridiculous to think that primitive humans, whose lives were “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short,” were still more grounded in reality than the politicians, intellectuals, and other talking heads who insist on one absurd foolishness after another?

It is a blessing to be middle class. No one worships you. You do not inspire fear, anxiety, or dread. Others will tell you the truth. And demand truth from you. We have our challenges to be sure. And the good news is that we are not surrounded by toadies lying to us about those challenges. Lucky you! Lucky me.


 

Traditional Planning Is Death Planning

Avoid Probate, Save Taxes, Get To Kids? And When You Die Broke, Drained By Long-Term Care, Probate Is Irrelevant

Traditional estate planning is supposed to avoid probate, save taxes, and dump your leftover stuff on your beneficiaries. After you die. Nobody cares what happens to you while you are alive. How does that help anyone? Stupid.

Traditional estate planning fails because the overwhelming majority of us will need long-term skilled care. 70% of us. For an average of 3 years. And we will go broke paying for it.

Is it surprising that thousands of recreation properties: cottages, cabins, hunting land, are lost to pay for long-term care? Why is your estate planner hurting you and your family? It is evil intent? Or stupidity?

LifePlanning™ defeats Nursing Home Poverty. Keep your stuff. Get the care you have already paid for. Good for you. Good for your family. Good example for society.

When my mother suffered from the dementia which led to her death, over 10 years ago, their estate plan preserved their lifesavings. Mom’s months in the nursing home did not mean Dad’s impoverishment. Dad spent the last years with security and peace of mind.

Is Now A Bad Time For A Real Solution?

Perhaps you think you already have an answer to this problem. Maybe you do not see this as a problem at all. It is possible that you do not believe in the passage of time or its effects on you.

Peace of mind and financial security are waiting for everyone who practices LifePlanning™. You know that peace only begins with financial security. Are legal documents the most important? Is avoiding probate the best you can do for yourself or your loved ones? Is family about inheritance? Or are these things only significant to support the foundation of your family?

Do you think finding the best care is easy? Do you want to get lost in the overwhelming flood of claims and promises? Or would you like straight answers?

Well, here you are. Now you know. No excuses. Get the information, insight, inspiration. It is your turn. Ignore the message? Invite poverty? Or get the freely offered information. To make wise decisions. For you. For your loved ones.

The LifePlan™ Workshop has been the first step on the path to security and peace for thousands of families. Why not your family?

I’m As Mad As Hell And I’m Not Going To Take This Anymore!

—Howard Beale, Network, 1976

We’re Not Gonna Take It, No, We Ain’t Gonna Take It, We’re Not Gonna Take It Anymore!

—Dee Snider, Twisted Sister, 1984

USA! USA! USA!

It was not that long ago. A year or so? America was recovering from the COVID. Economic growth was rebounding. Interest rates continued at historic low levels. Minimal inflation. Energy affordable and secure. Americans doing what Americans do. Getting on with it. Making the best of the situation. Recovering.

Remember before-COVID? Best economy ever for working Americans of all ages and racial groups. Record employment. At the highest real wages in history.

COVID and the response to the pandemic was a body blow. Confronted with a virus of mysterious origin. COVID deaths were 90+% among older folks with other ailments but affected us all. Lockdowns, economic paralysis, “No gardening for you!”.

Yet there was some desperate pride in adversity. Frontline healthcare workers’ extraordinary courageous efforts. Army field hospitals established overnight in Central Park. Navy hospital ships designed to treat battle-wounded soldiers converted at incredible speed to COVID treatment. Car factories suddenly manufacturing complex ventilators. Personal Protection Equipment production ramped up. Scientific research and vaccine development at “warp speed”.

Some sought political advantage. Blame Game. Extraordinary stresses resulted from lockdowns, masking, different therapeutic and preventive approaches to dealing with the pandemic. Some violence was excused. Other violence exaggerated and hysterically condemned. Rules for thee, but not for me? Raise your hand if you are surprised by politicians’ hypocrisy. Me neither.

And yet. Despite all the blame-gaming. Whatever your personal politics. Whomever you think is at fault. Let’s look over the edge of this foxhole. Aren’t there are some undeniable realities, some inconvenient truths?

Inflation is at 40-year highs. And getting worse.

Interest rates doubling, tripling. Home ownership out of reach. What do you think higher interest rates will do to the deficit?
Energy dependence is our future. America pleads with oil potentates who refuse our President’s phone calls and verbally abuse his envoys. “Strategic Petroleum Reserve” is pumped out to temporarily mask reality.

Crime and murder rates are skyrocketing back to the bad old days. Carnage in the streets.

Economic gains erased. Recession talk is back. Recession reality about to bite. Stagnation looms.

No borders for the U.S. Millions already crossed over. Given a joke legal document. And a cell phone. And a ticket to your town. To compete with you and your neighbors.

America is on edge. Agitated and anxious. Withdrawn and passive. Contradictory emotions and impulses. Remember Jimmy Carter? Malaise? Anything feel familiar nowadays?

How did we get here? Where do we go now?

Russia Russia Russia

Early 2022. Russia’s main rival (that’s us!) dazed and confused. Some American politicians and partisans credit Russia with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men. Russia chooses America’s president. Some believed this. Others said it for political advantage.

Russia riding high. Europe, with fresh America approval, agreed to new pipelines from Russian oil and gas fields. Europe cast away its independence. Europe invites the Russian boot upon its neck.

Russia’s Chief Crime Boss believed the American politicians. And the American newspapers. And his generals. Russian Chief Crime Boss thought he was really something. Also thought he had a real military.

Chief Crime Boss thought, “Now’s the time!” And invaded another country. Threatens others.

How’s that working out? Tens of thousands of dead or missing Russian soldiers. Thousands of dead Ukrainians. Billions of destroyed civilian and military property. Sunk ships. Millions of wrecked dreams. Years of effort demolished overnight with artillery shells, missiles, and bombs. Medieval brutality. Standard Operating Procedure for Russia, from czarist times to the time you read this. No surprise to anyone familiar with any ancient or modern Russian military adventure.

But Europe has had enough. Petroleum extortion blackmail is okay but killing people and breaking things… too much!

Henchmen of Chief Russian Crime Boss lied to him. Military was for show, not go. Crime Boss losing. But Crime Boss can never lose. Now Chief Russian Crime Boss threatens nuclear weapons.

How did this happen? What now?

USA vs Russia

There is no easy way out. No effortless solutions. We are past that now. Yet there is hope. America still has Americans. People who do not like being lied to. People who want to say what they want to say. We are a talkative bunch. We do not like to be shut up. We like to irritate our betters. We like to shake things up. That is what the First Amendment is all about.

Russia has the Russian system. Shut up or die. Shut up and die. No way out. No Exit. No solution when your country is run by a Chief Crime Boss and his henchmen. For as long as the Crime Boss lives. History provides countless examples. Napoleon: France. Hitler: Germany. Idi Amin: Uganda. Pol Pot: Cambodia. Franco: Spain.

Sadly, some Americans like the Russian Way. Some Americans are afraid of other people talking. So afraid that the government is setting up a “Disinformation Governance Board” staffed by political appointees. To govern “Disinformation”? Who decides which information is true blue, all-American, reliable, sanctified, and Government- Approved Information? Who decides which is evil, bad, horrible, no-good Disinformation? How can anything like this be consistent with the First Amendment? Can it be reconciled? Of course not.

Fortunately, many American immigrants seem to understand the importance of free discourse better than some of us born here. One immigrant, naturalized American has even spent some of his own money to buy a communications company. He promises to make it available to all. We shall see.

And that is the difference. We have our troubles, but the American Way of free speech, without fear or favor, will eventually enable us to solve our problems. If we continue to believe and act as Americans.

This is not a new issue with us. About a hundred years ago, in Whitney v. California, 274 U.S. 357 (1927), the Supreme Court upheld a conviction for dangerous speech. Forty years later, the Court, in Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969), overruled that precedent and forcefully upheld free speech under the First Amendment.

Who wants to turn the clock back? Who wants to suppress, prosecute, and imprison their fellow Americans for speaking on political issues? Why do they fear talk? Are their ideas so weak? Do they have no confidence in their fellow citizens? Are they so smart that no one else need express any thought? Who are these people? Why do they reject the American Way and embrace the Russian Way?

Although it appears nowhere in his writings, Winston Churchill is often credited with saying:

You can always count on Americans to do the right thing – after they’ve tried everything else.

The Russian Way leads to death and destruction. The American Way leads to disagreement, discomfort, annoyance, and a better future and outcome for us all. We tried a mild variation on the Russian Way. And threw it out. Let’s stick to the American Way!

Five Basic Laws of Human Stupidity

Setting New Records For Pitiful Stupidity?

Every day in every way, we are getting better and better! Who believes that? You try and try, but isn’t it getting more and more difficult to keep the faith? Just look around. Or in a grocery store. Or any kind of store. We are #1! Setting records every week… ain’t it grand?

BASIC PRICE INFLATION. In March 2022, the United States set a 40-year record high for inflation. April 2022 says, “Hold my beer.” And catapults past March, with a new 40-year record high. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Let’s blame Russia.

(Don’t you just love this chart which pretends you can ignore food and energy prices? Excellent!)

cpi change

MORTGAGE INTEREST RATES. Not to be outdone, mortgage interest rates also jumped to new highs. The Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation, known to its friends as “Freddie Mac,” proudly proclaims prodigious price proliferation. “Well done, Freddie!” say us. You want to buy a house? Ha ha ha. Renting is good.

FEDERAL FERTILIZER FRACAS. Is it ridiculous to observe that large quantities of cow-based organic fertilizer are produced by government operations? Do you doubt that the highest level of government work product consists primarily of bull-based fertilizer, also known as “BS”? Verily, the highest praise from one bureaucrat to another: “That is total BS!” How can there be a fertilizer shortage with all this manure and BS? Our “public servants” find the way.

BONUS QUESTION: Will skyrocketing fuel and fertilizer costs reduce food prices? What do you think? Asking for a friend…

fertilizer price index

IT AIN’T JUST FERTILIZER. Is it crazy to think that raw material costs have something to do with store prices? Do manufacturers get everything for free? Is the cost of steel and rubber and aluminum and a whole bunch of other stuff irrelevant to the price of your new car?

ppi 12 month change

Let’s look at overall raw material costs. Remember that store prices are up 8.5%. How about raw material prices? Any good news there? Nope. Those prices are up 11.2%. Unexpectedly.

RUSSIAN INVASION. Everybody feel bad for murderous thieving Russian crime boss. Crime boss unhappy because neighborhood victims no want murder or stealing no more.

Is good club in neighborhood. Nice neighborhood people make good club so murderous Russian crime boss no murder them and steal stuff. But Russian crime boss like murder and steal. Sad now.

Other neighborhood folks name Sweden and Finland want join good club. Russian crime boss no like that idea! So, Sweden and Finland not join good club so Russian crime boss not get very sad then start murdering and stealing again.

Nobody to murder or steal from. Russian crime boss sad, so sad. And bored. Russian crime boss get angry. Say no one even think about join good club. Then Russian crime boss start murder and steal from neighbor.

Sweden and Finland see Russian crime boss murder and steal. Sweden and Finland now say, “Hmmm, maybe good time join good club.”

Russian crime boss get many Russians killed. Russian crime boss lose lots of Russian stuff. Russian crime boss get many neighbor people killed. Russian crime boss wreck lots of neighbor’s stuff. [By the way, there are very few Russians healthy and young enough for military service. And this idiot is feeding them wholesale into a meat grinder. That’s how stupid he is.]

Russian crime boss gets nothing good, loses lots. Russian crime boss neighbor gets nothing good, loses lots.

No good. All bad. Very bad.

Russian crime boss evil, yes. Very evil. Russian crime boss worse than evil. Russian crime boss stupid.

“Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.”

—Robert J. Hanlon, Hanlon’s Razor, 1980

The Five Basic Laws Of Human Stupidity

Carlo M. Cipolla stated that there are 5 basic laws of Human Stupidity that help to explain the world around us. Do politicians intend to harm us? Are they doing it on purpose? Some are, probably, but most are just stupid. They actually believe that creating more money will cure inflation. Well.

Last week we visited the first 3 of Cipolla’s Laws:

The First Basic Law Of Human Stupidity

Always And Inevitably Everyone Underestimates The Number Of Stupid Individuals In Circulation.
There are more stupid people hanging around that you can possibly imagine.

The Second Basic Law Of Human Stupidity

The Probability That A Certain Person Be Stupid Is Independent Of Any Other Characteristic Of That Person.
Rich people, poor people, Harvard graduates, elementary school dropouts, artists, butchers, bakers, candlestick makers, lawyers, doctors, politicians. All are equally, proportionately, stupid.

The Third and Golden Basic Law Of Human Stupidity

A Stupid Person Is A Person Who Causes Losses To Another Person Or To A Group Of Persons While Himself Deriving No Gain And Even Possibly Incurring Losses.

BANDIT. It is possible to be an almost intelligent bandit. The bandit always harms others. Bandits are evil. But not necessarily stupid. An intelligent evil bandit steals your car. And keeps your car. You are down a whole automobile. Bandit is up by an automobile. You lose. Bandit gains. Gains and losses balance. The whole is not worse off, even though evil stuff happened.

Most bandits are not intelligent. Most bandits are stupid. Most bandits cause far more harm to you than they benefit themselves. Bandit carjacks your car. Shoots you. You lose automobile, pancreas, kidney, and part of your left lung. You are way way down. Bandit does not get to keep stolen car. Bandit sells for cheap to chop shop. Bandit is now Public Enemy #1. Bandit gets caught, goes to jail. Bad things happen.

Bandit hurts you and hurts self. Stupid.

BANDIT POLITICIAN. Politician wants to be liked. Pumps up trilllions of money from nowhere. Gives to friends. Lots of friends. Would print up and give away even more, but spoilsports say “NO!”. Politician sad.

Price inflation takes away more money than Politician gave to friends. Friends now unhappy. Much more unhappy than before. Cannot buy house. Cannot go on vacation. Cannot buy food.

Politician now unliked by all. Popularity in the toilet. Most people say “Big Stinker!”. Politician loses. Friends lose. Everybody loses.

Politician hurts you and hurts self. Stupid.

The Fourth Basic Law Of Human Stupidity

Non-Stupid People Always Underestimate The Damaging Power Of Stupid Individuals. In Particular Non-Stupid People Constantly Forget That At All Times And Places And Under Any Circumstances To Deal And/Or Associate With Stupid People Always Turns Out To Be A Costly Mistake.

Did you think Russia would be threatening thermonuclear war against Sweden and Finland (and the rest of us) in the Spring of 2022? Did you guess that the United States would be fighting a land war in Europe right about now? Did you foresee the highest inflation rates in 40 years? Did your crystal ball foretell that testicle’ed humans would be celebrated for beating uterus’ed humans in athletic contests? Did you predict that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology would give up the most effective screening tests available to admit unqualified students who flunked out at astounding rates? And so on and so on and so on…

Stupid people endanger us all. With nuclear war. And conventional war. Murder. Destruction. And the acceptance of preposterous positions that no one with a grain of common sense could countenance.

As George Orwell once said:

“Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.”

The Fifth Basic Law Of Human Stupidity

A Stupid Person Is The Most Dangerous Type Of Person

Traditional Planning Is Stupid Planning

Traditional Planning Is Dangerous To You And Your Family

Stupid people are unpredictable. Totally and completely unpredictable. You cannot protect yourself, or any part of what you value, from the stupid person.

For example, you can calculate how a bandit will operate. An “intelligent” bandit wants your stuff. If you give the “intelligent” bandit your stuff, the bandit will (probably) not harm you further. It is evil. You have lost. But you live another day.

Stupid bandits shoot you. You lose. They wind up in a bad place. Everybody loses. See, Ukraine. Intelligent people are quite predictable.

Intelligent people see what is good for them. You can understand why they want what is good for them. Intelligent people do not want to hurt you, because you can benefit them again in the future. Also you get good things from the intelligent person. Cooperation! Even competitive cooperation, where both persons actively and intelligently strive for advantage, without gratuitously harming the other. What a wonderful thing!

Middle class folks may be proportionally as stupid as any other groups. But, middle class people act more intelligently than any other group. Murderous thieving Russian crime bosses, grifting politicians, overbearing tech oligarchs, and other persons in positions of power are tolerated because of their power. They do not hear the truth because they are feared.

Who fears you? Who lies to you rather than tell you the truth because of your awesome, terrible power? Nobody.

Powerful People are just as stupid as we are. But we get better information than the Powerful People who are surrounded by fear-ridden toadies. Do you want to be the one who tells murderous thieving Russian crime boss that his big missile boat was blown up? Me neither.

Stupid Powerful People unpredictably, do harmful things that hurt all of us and benefit them not at all.

Thank God that you are middle class. You have the power to do good. And nobody lies to you out of fear.

Traditional Planning Is Stupid Planning

Traditional Planning Is Dangerous To You And Your Family

Traditional estate planning is concerned with avoiding probate, saving taxes, and dumping your leftover stuff on your beneficiaries. After you die. Nobody cares what happens to you while you are alive. How does that help anyone? Stupid.

Traditional estate planning fails because the overwhelming majority of us will need long-term skilled care. 70% of us. For an average of 3 years. And we will go broke paying for it.

Is it surprising that thousands of recreation properties: cottages, cabins, hunting land, are lost to pay for long-term care? Why is your estate planner hurting you and your family? It is evil intent? Or stupidity?

LifePlanning™ defeats Nursing Home Poverty. Keep your stuff. Get the care you have already paid for. Good for you. Good for your family. Good example for society.

When my mother suffered from the dementia which led to her death, over 10 years ago, their estate plan preserved their lifesavings. Mom’s months in the nursing home did not mean Dad’s impoverishment. Dad spent the last years with security and peace of mind.

Is Now A Bad Time For A Real Solution?

Perhaps you think you already have an answer to this problem. Maybe you do not see this as a problem at all. It is possible that you do not believe in the passage of time or its effects on you.

Peace of mind and financial security are waiting for everyone who practices LifePlanning™. You know that peace only begins with financial security. Are legal documents the most important? Is avoiding probate the best you can do for yourself or your loved ones? Is family about inheritance? Or are these things only significant to support the foundation of your family?

Do you think finding the best care is easy? Do you want to get lost in the overwhelming flood of claims and promises? Or would you like straight answers?

Well, here you are. Now you know. No excuses. Get the information, insight, inspiration. It is your turn. Ignore the message? Invite poverty? Or get the freely offered information. To make wise decisions. For you. For your loved ones.

The LifePlan™ Workshop has been the first step on the path to security and peace for thousands of families. Why not your family?

No Poverty. No Charity. No Waste.

It is not chance. It is choice. Your choice.

German Pacifism On The Ash Heap Of History

Oh, So That’s What A Real Megalomaniac Looks Like

So He Went And Did It… Evil Idiot

Was there ever a war as stupid, pointless, evil, wasteful, and idiotic? Yes. Many. This is what you get with National Socialism, Democratic Socialism, Ricardian Socialism, Scientific Socialism, Leninist Socialism. Marxism, Communism, Maoism, all the -isms, all the same. Every try talking to one of these “socialists” about their ideology? About what actually happens? About the human misery? Tens of millions of humans starved, shot, tortured to death? “Oh that’s not real socialism, you poor ignorant fool!” they say. Then you will be overwhelmed with a dense, impenetrable word- fog. Like the undertow off Lake Michigan. You are sucked in. Suffocated. You drown. Words as weapons. First to weaken. Then to kill. Over and over.

And that’s how a Jewish Ukrainian guy becomes a neo-Nazi. Because he leads a people living on land that the other guy wants. This is nothing new. The same tired hogwash has deceived the “smart folks” for hundreds of years. From the French Revolution to Democratic Socialism. Same crap, different day.

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can
make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

—Lewis Carroll, “Through The Looking Glass”

Attach whatever labels you like. It is all the same. Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Putin is a long-time member of the Socialist Great Leader Murderers Club. Naturally, the few dozen dissidents and journalists he has murdered here and there do not count. Just par for the course. They made him uncomfortable so he killed them. Radiation. Nerve gas. Not secret. Business as usual.

Club Membership is exclusive. Only mass murderers need apply. Industrial scale slaughter. This guy’s been “in” for over 20 years now.

Long long ago. Far far away. Chechnya. Remember? Yeltsin started it and Putin carried on. 250,000 civilians dead. Tens of thousands more military casualties. War crimes as policy. Approved tactics: torture (real torture), rape, arson and murder.

Chechnya and Ukraine. In the same neighborhood. With the same heavily armed, unstable, nutjob neighbor who is always mumbling to himself about his glory days. Gee, do you wonder why even untrained Ukrainians want guns? Mysterious… why are they willing to fight?

Unprovoked military aggression. Civilians dead and wounded. Atomic power plants on fire. Soldiers dead and wounded. Stuff smashed. Labor lost. Hatred, grief, sadness. For what? Why?

To put Humpty Dumpty back together again. To reassemble the Soviet Union. At least the good parts. That is what this rifle-totin’, river swimmin’, pony-ridin’ he-man wants. He says so. It is no mystery.

In 2005, Putin said: “First and foremost it is worth acknowledging that the demise of the Soviet Union was the greatest geopolitical catastrophe of the century. As for the Russian people, it became a genuine tragedy. Tens of millions of our fellow citizens and countrymen found themselves beyond the fringes of Russian territory.”

Here’s a guy with nuclear weapons. Lots of them. What does he think of the dead millions and catastrophic destruction of World War I, and World War II, and Korea, and Vietnam, and the Congolese wars, and Mozambique, and Biafra, and the Chinese Revolution, and the Cultural Revolution, and all the other bloodletting of the last century? Eh, not so bad. Worse than dead millions are liberated millions. Hundreds of millions liberated through the collapse of the Soviet Union. So that is what is going on in Ukraine, if you were wondering.

How did we get here? A few observations completely unrelated to the Ukraine aggression:

1. This guy has huge surpluses of oil, natural gas, and coal. Things that make factories go and keep homes warm and well-lit.
2. Because we got yelled at by a cranky, prepubescent Swedish kid who likes to play hooky, we now depend on unicorn farts and moonbeams to make our factories go and keep
our homes warm and well-lit. Brilliant!
3. Because we do not like mean tweets, we shut down our own supplies of cheap, secure oil, natural gas, and coal. Now we beg the bare-chested megalomaniac and others to sell us oil, natural gas, and coal. At extremely high prices. America! What a country!
4. Somebody’s making an awful lot of money pitching the unicorn fart and moonbeam machines that break down, don’t work, and chop up eagles like a Super Bass-O-Matic ’76.
5. Prestige and reputation tend to dwindle when rag-tag gangs of refugees from the 6th century taunt you. And beat you. And kill you. And steal your stuff. Then do the same to your friends who trusted you. And who refuse your bribes and sneer at your threats.
6. Fritter away your reputation and prestige and you invite megalomaniacal bullies to act as megalomaniacal bullies act.

Ukraine SNAFU Situation Normal – All Fudged Up
(But They Didn’t Say Fudged)

How’s that “Bring Back Stalin” war going anyway? They killed some people. Broke some stuff. Got a 40-mile-long convoy. Like Biden’s motorcade when he went to Scotland to complain about air pollution or something. Gross ineptitude seems to characterize the goings-on. What do the experts have to say?

“Knowing others and knowing oneself, in one hundred battles no danger. Not knowing the other and knowing oneself, one victory for one loss. Not knowing the other and not knowing oneself, in every battle certain defeat.”

—Sun Tzu, The Art of War

Soldiers are the heart of any army. Fighting spirit is the core of any soldier. There don’t seem to be many soldiers among the invaders. Seems like the invaders were not told they were invading until they invaded. And now Ukrainian mothers are calling Russian mothers so they can talk to their captured, weepy, hungry, homesick teenage sons. On the other hand, Ukrainian soldiers seem to understand why they fight.

Citizens are the heart of any nation. Patriotism is the core of any citizen. There seem to be quite a few citizens in Ukraine. And now Ukrainian citizens are taking up arms against the foreign invaders.

Do you think the megalomaniac knew the Ukrainians would fight back and that his “troops” would be confused and lost? That they would surrender and weep? Me neither. Not knowing the other and not knowing oneself, in every battle certain defeat.

Even the most willing soldiers need arms. But it appears that the invader’s equipment has not been maintained and is breaking down. For example, brand-new, unused missile trucks had brand-new, unused tires. Tires put on at the factory. Trucks then driven to marshalling yards. Trucks then sat. And sat. And sat. For years. Now comes invasion. Tires now brittle with dry rot. Tires fall apart when taken off road. Big huge military off-road tires. And there are no new tires. And if there were new tires, how would you get them to the front? With a 40-mile traffic jam? Must keep all trucks on road. Forty miles long road. How you say “sitting duck” in Russian? Or Ukrainian (if there is such a language)?

Also they have no food. And they ran out of water. And they ran out of gas. Gee, if only somebody had thought about these problems.

Amateurs talk strategy. Professionals talk logistics.

—Omar Bradley, General of the Army

Every man is important. The ordnance men are needed to supply the guns, the quartermaster is needed to bring up the food and clothes for us because where we are going there isn’t a hell of a lot to steal. Every last damn man in the mess hall, even the one who boils the water, has a job to do.

—George S. Patton, Lieutenant General

An Army travels on its stomach.

—Napoleon Bonaparte, Emperor of France Frederick the Great, King of Prussia

It appears that the invaders were not told they were invading until they invaded. Without food. Without fuel. Without common sense.

Megalomaniac Invaders Have No Use For Middle-Class Values

Ever go on vacation? Take a little trip? Go camping? Bet you made sure gas tank was filled. And that the sleeping bags were packed. And you had a map (OK, OK… GPS!). Funny how middle class folks manage to figure out the basics that really smart geniuses overlook.

Megalomaniac or demented dodderer… national leaders sometimes don’t get the message. Are their people too afraid to tell them truth? Are they simply unaware? Do they believe their own press releases? Who knows?

Good News: regular folks do not have the luxury of being so stupid. We are not awesome. Our friends and co-workers do not grovel to us. They tell us the truth. They trust us. The smart folks do not trust us. They tell us the things they think we need to believe. So we will do the things they think we should. Like run factories and heat homes with unicorn farts and rainbows. Or moonbeams, I forget which.

Some people say that avoiding probate, saving taxes, and getting stuff to kids is what estate planning is all about. And if you wind up in long-term care, that is on you. Besides that never happens, the smart ones say.

Seems to me that an awful lot of folks do need long-term care. The government says 70% of people aged 65 will need, on average, 3 years of skilled care services. In a variety of settings. All of them expensive. Ruinously expensive.

Social Security is America’s answer to retirement income needs. Social Security is paid for with your tax dollars.

Medicare is America’s answer to hospitalization, medical, and pharmacy needs. Medicare is paid for with your tax dollars and premiums.

Medicaid is America’s answer to long-term care needs. Medicaid is paid for with your tax dollars.

Why does only Medicaid require that you be broke? Except for your house (up to $700,000). Except for your motorized vehicle (any value). Except for $2000.

Are you against getting the same deal with Medicaid that you get with Social Security and Medicare? Are you opposed to getting a payback on tax dollars paid in? Do you want your spouse broke?

Is Now A Bad Time For A Real Solution?

Some folks think they have all the answers to all the world’s problems. People who think like that often get to run countries. And get to tell other folks what to do. Does that sound like fun?

Other folks keep their perspective. Act with common sense. Look out for others. Work for fairness. Willing to help with common goals. Not willing to be played for a chump.

Peace of mind and financial security are waiting for everyone who practices LifePlanning™. You know that peace only begins with financial security. Are legal documents the most important? Is avoiding probate the best you can do for yourself or your loved ones? Is family about inheritance? Or are these things only significant to support the foundation of your family?

Do you think finding the best care is easy? Do you want to get lost in the overwhelming flood of claims and promises? Or would you like straight answers?

Scanning The Globe To Bring You The Constant Variety Of Shorts

Jeepers Creepers Fellas! Europe War Bad!
Oh My Golly! Inflation Ragin’!
Zounds! Oil Prices Up And Sheiks Rejoice!

The Thrill Of Victory, The Agony Of Defeat

News Of The World
Everything Going To Hell In Hand Basket
Raise Hand If Surprised

Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle.
Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. That’s why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans.

—George S. Patton

That was then. This is now.

Are the Russian people strong? Recently, Russia celebrated a 50% drop in extreme alcohol abuse. But: “the average Russian over the age of 15 years old [still] drinks about 11 liters (almost three gallons) of pure ethanol every year.” Read More Here

Is the Russian military strong? “[T]he United States maintains a fleet of literally hundreds of operational fifth-generation jets, while Russia has only 14 or so (only two of which are serial production models, the other 12 are handmade prototypes).” Read More Here Russian ships, submarines, tanks, missiles, electronics malfunction, sink, and blow up unexpectedly. Also they rust. Right now, in Syria, whenever Israelis want to blow up something defended by Russian missiles, the Israelis tell the Russians to turn off the radar so the Russians don’t get blown up too. And the Russians do. Guess they don’t want to get blown up.

Is the Russian economy strong? Russian per capita income is 85th in the world. Bulgaria beats them. Guam is 36th. Read More Here

Nobody wants Russian stuff. Not even Russians. Except vodka. But they have a lot of oil and gas! $40/barrel = Russia poor. $100/barrel = Russia rich. Remember when there was too much oil? Who shut down American pipelines? Oil exploration? Fracking? Who shut down $2 gas?

Is Russian leadership strong? Czar-for-Life is Communist former KGB agent spy large and in charge. Stalin is role model. Longing for Soviet Socialist glory days. Like most Russians. (Freedom is hard.) Read More Here. “Stalin had nearly a million of his own citizens executed, beginning in the 1930s. Millions more fell victim to forced labor, deportation, famine, massacres, and detention and interrogation by Stalin’s henchmen.” Read More Here. Did Stalin kill 20 million Russians? Or was it only 14 million? Don’t know.

So we tremble and cower before a nation of alcoholics, bearing Cold War-era weapons (still deadly to civilians), and no economy to speak of. Led by a fanboy of the second most murderous megalomaniac in history (Mao Zedong (also socialist) is #1 with 30-45 million kills). And the fight seems to be over a “nation” with a similar leadership and history.

Punchline #1: Whose side are we on? Don’t know. Why? Don’t know.
Punchline #2: Whatever side we’re on, we are losing. To the alcoholics. Badly. Obviously.
Punchline #3: Losing is now a habit. Can you remember Afghanistan? Only a few months ago. August 2021. Look it up.

Also inflation is up. Way up. Jimmy Carter up. Remember when oil was cheap? Putin was put out. Sheiks were saddened. Americans elated. And now… $100/barrel oil is back. Moscow is making merry! And the sheiks won’t return our calls. Ready for gas lines?

The glamour of evil is seductive. Temptation is all around. It easily overwhelms weak- minded, weak-hearted weaklings. Who become desperate. Lash out. Why has our Neighbor to the North abandoned its ideals? Victimizing the victims? Do they know that George Orwell’s Animal Farm was meant as a cautionary tale, not a how-to guide?

What To Do

What can you do? Stay true to our middle-class values. Sure, it looks good for the bad guys now. It always looks good for the bad guys. For a while. But have you noticed that the more awful the bad guys get, the more certain they will eventually fail? Those who believe in nothing, will believe anything. Firebombing is peaceful. Horn-honking is terrorism.

Faith and freedom. Perseverance and patience. Courage and commitment. These are the sword and shield of the middle class.

The world is counting on you. As it has in the past. As it will in the future. You are the indispensable people. America is the exceptional nation. Evil is not inevitable, unless we shrink from challenging it.

Every week someone tells me that pointing out the basic, obvious truth is “political.” As if that’s a bad thing. The attitude bebaffles, bebothers and bewilders me. Are you against the idea that hard work should be rewarded? Do you oppose getting some return on your tax dollars? Is it wrong to follow government-made rules so your spouse is not impoverished by long-term care? Is it ridiculous to think that leaving your kids a little something could be significant?

Is Now A Bad Time For A Real Solution?

Perhaps you already have all the answers. Maybe this is no problem at all. Possibly you do not believe in the passage of time.

Your habits and values have earned you peace of mind and financial security. LifePlanning™ is the easy part. You worked for the peace that only comes with financial security. What is most important, legal documents? Avoiding probate, is that the best you can do? Is family about inheritance? Or are the deeper things most significant?

Is any of this easy? Do you want to get lost in the overwhelming flood of claims and promises? Or would you like straight answers?

Well, here you are. Now you know. No excuses. Get the information, insight, inspiration. It is your turn. Ignore the message? Invite poverty? Or get the freely offered information. To make wise decisions. For you. For your loved ones.
