Hello out there. How are we doing?
Okay, so, it was a SPECTACULAR summer day here in flyover country. Temps in the low 80s, low humidity, etc., and that being the case, yours truly took the special needs nephew to the zoo. To put it mildly, the place was jammed. I mean jammed, and since we all were supposed to have reservations…it was JAMMED. (Our Zoo is on a special tax base with four other institutions, and thus has free admission, so, EVERYBODY goes anytime.)
In way of a ground report, there were signs everywhere saying, “We trust that those who are not vaccinated will wear masks.” As maybe 5% of the patrons of the Saint Louis Zoological Park were masked, I’d venture to guess no one is paying attention.
I did try to get a good picture of a camel for the header, and the camera was not cooperating. And not only that, the picture is too big to upload.
On to the rest of today’s goodies.
Does this resemble anyone you know????????
Some good news on the COVID shoot ’em up front.
Yes, this has been the World Health Organization’s recommendation all along, but now it’s being publicized.
So, do we think people are demoralized or just addicted to fear?
Which leads to….
Why is this happening?
Hence why we’ve been so dumbed down and trained to trust “experts.”
There’s another one…..
Inspired by the trip to the zoo. While we were on the Zooline Railroad, we passed the exhibit known as “The River’s Edge” where the elephants are, and two of the ladies were out in their yard. Dear nephew said, “Those are Asian elephants.” (He was right.) I asked, “How do you know?” And he came back with, “I don’t know.”
Per the Boss:
And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:
Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.
Fellow tree dweller Wheatie gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:
- No food fights.
- No running with scissors.
- If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone
Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.
Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.
Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out.
Auntie DePat’s requests as we are all, ahem, adults, not uncivilized pygmies:
If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.
The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.
Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.
One other vital note:
Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.
15″Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? 17So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. 18A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20Thus you will know them by their fruits.
“Our task is not one of producing persuasive propaganda; Christianity shows its greatness when it is hated by the world.” –St. Ignatius of Antioch
As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.
Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.
Guess what. J.P. knows how “Rapinoe” is supposed to be pronounced.
