    Happy New Year everyone. I’ll drop the following joke as told by Ronald Reagan…

    “Over lunch today I asked Ed Meese about one of Reagan’s favorite jokes. ‘The pony joke?’ Meese replied. ‘Sure I remember it. If I heard him tell it once, I heard him tell it a thousand times.’”

    “The joke concerns twin boys of five or six. Worried that the boys had developed extreme personalities – one was a total pessimist, the other a total optimist – their parents took them to a psychiatrist.”

    “First the psychiatrist treated the pessimist. Trying to brighten his outlook, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with brand-new toys. But instead of yelping with delight, the little boy burst into tears. ‘What’s the matter?’ the psychiatrist asked, baffled. ‘Don’t you want to play with any of the toys?’ ‘Yes,’ the little boy bawled, ‘but if I did I’d only break them.’”

    “Next the psychiatrist treated the optimist. Trying to dampen his out look, the psychiatrist took him to a room piled to the ceiling with horse manure. But instead of wrinkling his nose in disgust, the optimist emitted just the yelp of delight the psychiatrist had been hoping to hear from his brother, the pessimist. Then he clambered to the top of the pile, dropped to his knees, and began gleefully digging out scoop after scoop with his bare hands. ‘What do you think you’re doing?’ the psychiatrist asked, just as baffled by the optimist as he had been by the pessimist. ‘With all this manure,’ the little boy replied, beaming, ‘there must be a pony in here somewhere!’”

    – excerpted from How Ronald Reagan Changed My Life by Peter Robinson

    This joke as told by Ronald Regan somes up my thoughts on 2020.

    ‘With all this manure there must be a pony in here somewhere!’

    Unfortunately, I haven’t found it yet.

    2021 will be VASTLY worse…but the media will proclaim it to be AWESOME, because of all the AWESOME things Biden* is doing

    Most of the 2020 HORRORS were either made up or blown waaaay out of proportion…the media will DOWNPLAY negative news under Biden*

    … The attack has also clearly demonstrated directly and indirectly, through the election, who the Chinese have bought off, in our system and internationally; just who the traitors, bootlickers and their useful idiots are in government and business….especially the media. The CCP dedicates a fixed percentage of GDP to buy influence with politicians globally. The Bidens are just the tip of the iceberg. Channeling Elaine Chao and her pet turtle, anyone? All it took for Nuke Em Swallwell was a little poontang. Treason and treachery come cheap for some.

    Mark Levin’s article is excellent, and recaps what has and should happen. Sadly, I have no faith that Congress will reverse the travesty that was the 2020 election.

    So it will come down to true Americans to set this aright. When? How? Dunno. I re-read the CARVER article drdog posted the other day, and while I doubt there are many C-A-R-V-E-R actions individual patriots can take, I do believe there are c-a-r-v-e-r things we can do. Smaller plans, smaller actions…but millions of them. And the same CRITICALITY, ACCESSIBILITY, RECUPERABILITY, VULNERABILITY, EFFECT, AND RECOGNIZABILITY factors can be applied on those smaller scales.

    Drdog, there are even smaller things that can have MASSIVE impacts, like…

    “Stalling” a car (or two or three) in the middle of the 4-level interchange in L.A. during Rush Hour (morning or evening). That would shut down the entire downtown L.A. Freeway network for hours if the “stalls” occurred in the right places. Same would work for most bridges in major cities. Do this 3 or 4 days in a row in different locations.

    L.A.and most major cities rely on JIT for stocking the shelves at markets, and almost all of it is trucked. America’s long-haul truckers could cripple this country if they chose to…and Biden* may give them a reason.

    And so on. When (not “if”) the puppet-masters behind Biden* starting pulling his strings, I think a lot of creative “gumming up of the works” is going to occur. At which point the government will have 2 choices: (1) Back off (2) Crunch down on the necks of Americans even HARDER.

    They will, of course, choose option #2. And the spiral will tighten.

    Drdog, et al, when I told Mrs. Justrand the other day that I intended to “Buy silver with whatever ‘Stimulus’ money we got.” She replied: “But isn’t the price silver NOW almost exactly what it was when we bought our last batch?” (About 2 years ago…I only buy it when it looks like things are going sideways).

    I told her: “Yup…but we didn’t buy it as an investment, but as a HEDGE”.

    For the last couple years I stopped buying silver (and stopped some other planning/preparing activities) because while Trump was President I got somewhat complacent. Just somewhat. Now any complacency is gone for good…and my planning/preparing timeframe is dramatically shorter.

    And another thing…on the WBF theme (more from me after the excerpt)

    From the article==>
    The Mackinac Center of Public Policy, the think tank where John Overton developed his window concept in the 1990s, says: “Sometimes politicians can move the Overton Window themselves by courageously endorsing a policy lying outside the window, but this is rare. More often, the window moves based on a much more complex and dynamic phenomenon, one that is not easily controlled from on high: the slow evolution of societal values and norms.”

    My issue with the author’s optimism, and the whole ‘Overton Window’ concept, is that we are in a new era where the politicians (and their Masters) no longer give a fuck about “societal values and norms”. The Democrats STOLE a Presidential election in broad daylight…everything else is small potatoes.

    16,

    Your choice for your circumstances. But here is my take on silver — Its going UP.

    CA alone has 16m current vehicles. The Guv has mandated that no new IC vehicles by 2030. Estimated that there is about a 1/10oz of silver in such cars; mostly circuit boards and contacts. X 16m and that adds up. Add in the use of silver in PV panels and its going up. Yet the demand for copper ore, the lead source for silver, is flat. Static supply but rising demand leads to …..

    I do have to say though I think the current EV car design is flawed. In most cases the car makers are still using a motor-tranny-cv drive train. LeTourneau proved back in the 50’s you don’t need drive trains. You attach the motor(s) directly to the axles. That is standard practice on heavy construction equipment worldwide using hydraulics. Same could be done using electric motors. One could also eliminate the standard friction braking system and replace it with EMF braking as is standard on subway cars.

    “The number of subjects that can be freely discussed and the range of opinions that can be publicly expressed will continue to contract.”

    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” — C.S. Lewis

    Since our government is so bizzzy these days I thought I would help them out by crafting some edicts…for the “Common Good”. Here goes:

    – In order to ensure a more congenial society, the number of subjects that can be discussed and the range of opinions that can be publicly expressed will be continually reviewed and restricted as necessary. Citizens will be required to keep abreast of such changes.

    – In order to control and eliminate the macro and micro-aggressions inherent in our society, the government will need to monitor all forms of discourse to identify and eradicate “Hate Speech”. Citizens can be assured that the government will act as “neutral arbiter” as to of what constitutes “Hate Speech”

    – In order to ensure equal access to, and sustainability of all resources, the choices citizens are allowed to make regarding transportation, residence (including location), diet, and comfort (including heating/cooling) will need to be restricted and/or mandated.

    – In order to ensure “societal harmony”, the concept of “Privacy” will need to be altered. Citizens are encouraged to notify the government of actions, opinions and attitudes they observe or suspect that are contrary to the goal of “societal harmony”. To encourage participation, citizens will be guaranteed that their “notifications” will remain completely anonymous. Further those accused of actions or attitudes that are contrary to “societal harmony”, will be required to prove they did NOT engage in them.

    And that’s just for starters!!

    16,

    Here is a fintech attack vector for you — Save like a madman.

    I don’t care your choice of doing so — gold, silver, cash, bonds (if you have money to piss away), etc.

    Why: The Fed is DESPERATE to get the velocity of money up because they want to inflate away the debt. Fact deflation has them scared to death. $16Tn in debentures in an environment where it gets harder and harder to float debt is going to keep Yellen up nights. The Fed has floated some 6TnUSD in funny money and still inflation is marginal.

    Americans saving money locks even more of that money into a 0 velocity situation. Done at scale we could break the bank.

    More fun: Buy used whenever possible. A new car gets calculated into the basket of GDP indicators. A used car does not (or any used item for that matter) as its already ‘produced’ and accounted for. Prudence says you save money too. But anyway, doing so at scale would drive BLS and Fed nuts.

    I am not sure about Steyn, but Tucker isn’t going anywhere if it entails a pay cut. After all, patriotism only goes so far. Tucker has also shown that he will “tone it down” when ordered to do so by Faux Noose management. The WWE is scripted, the Tooth Fairy isn’t real and Faux personalities aren’t going anywhere if it hits them in the wallet.

    Buy used whenever possible.

    Prudence says you save money too. But anyway, doing so at scale would drive BLS and Fed nuts.

    Here is a tip, used business grade technology like PCs, switches, firewalls/routers, and WiFi equipment can be had for 20 to 30 cents on the dollar for equipment that is 2 to 3 years old on sites such as Amazon or eBay. Technology depreciates even faster than a car, but generally can be found in nearly new condition with just a scuff or two to show their used status. Business grade equipment from companies such as HP, Dell, or Samsung generally have better long-term support which can be important for some drivers that may need to be kept up-to-date. Windows 10 licenses are often tied to the hardware number in CPU so installing the latest Windows 10 OS is generally not a problem (or use Linux if you are a little more tech-savvy, adventurous, and want to stick it to the globalist Bill Gates).

    The only part of a PC ages in a meaningful manner over a few years is a hard drive or SSD. An up-to-date SSD will be faster, cheaper, and higher capacity than devices just a few years old, but I wouldn’t bother replacing an SSD less than three years old if it can be wiped and reset to a fresh Windows or Linux install. A Windows PC should easily go for 8 to 10 years before it may become to outdated to function well and with Linux the hardware can be stretched to 12 to 14 years.

    I recently updated my father’s computer for $220 to a used HP EliteDesk business computer with an Intel i5 processor, 16 GB of RAM, a new 256GB SSD, and a new Windows 10 install. A new equivalent HP system that would be no different in any meaningful way that mattered would be $800 to $1000.

    Laptops are more of a dice roll because they may or may not have been treated well by previous owners. For my day-to-day personal laptop, I have a used 6-year-old Acer Chromebook converted to run Linux (or very hacked/stripped version of Windows 10) and the Brave browser to rid myself of Big-Tech-Brother watching over me (well mostly). I’ve had good luck with higher-end reconditioned Chromebooks that I select based on whether they can be easily converted to run Linux or Windows. “Easily” being a very relative term though as it’s not something I would recommend to anyone without experience with the conversion process and tools. I get a sense of satisfaction taking a perfectly good piece of hardware with planned obsolescence and making it work well beyond what Big Tech intended or desires.

    Unfortunately, I’ve had a hard time convincing my wife and kids to be prudent in the same manner with regards to technology — even with me to help.

    mpt, thanks for the great advice!

    the other aspect of modern technology is that almost all software is now “served”…and thus you have to pay for it every year or it goes away. It’s why I am still on Microsoft Office 10. 🙂

    It’s why I am still on Microsoft Office 10.

    There may be business reasons to stay connected to Microsoft Office, but for personal use the reasons are not nearly as strong. In fact, I would argue Microsoft Office can be harmful. I have an elderly friend whom I help out with his technology needs. He wrote several books recalling tales of his WWII/Korea military service in the late 1990s using whatever version of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Works ran on Windows 98. In the last year, I helped him organize his computer files and we were surprised to find that current versions of Microsoft Word are unable to open up files from the 1990s and haven’t been able to for over a decade or more. I had to go a LOT of contortions (something he wouldn’t have been able to do himself) to get the files back into a suitable format for modern versions of Microsoft Office. His Microsoft Works files were almost beyond salvage.

    As long as you can run Microsoft Office 10 you should be fine, but anything of Windows 7/8 vintage will start having difficulties over the next few years as Microsoft phases out running software of that vintage. Microsoft does a pretty good job of running fairly simple old applications such as utilities under Windows 10 compatibility modes for XP/Vista/7/8, but complex applications such as Microsoft Office, games and anything from Adobe become a little dicey because they tend to do things outside the bounds that compatibility the modes support.

    I don’t do much with regards to office type productivity applications these days, but I found most of the modern descendants of the OpenOffice suite of tools (Apache OpenOffice, LibreOffice, NeoOffice, etc…) do a very good job for personal use, even with Microsoft Office file formats. Their user interfaces also tend to be simpler and easier to use than all the ribbon crap that Office switched over to a few versions back.

    It would probably be prudent to come up with a plan for moving beyond Microsoft Office over the next few years to something more open. Better to do it now at your leisure than to find that Microsoft, in their infinite wisdom and endless updates, eliminates overnight the compatibility features that enable Windows 10 to run older versions of Microsoft Office. Keep in mind, your ability to do so is not in their best interest and the tools they give to large businesses to keep doing so may not be available to us plebians. You’ll also be one step closer to being able to run Linux or BSD Unix if that option ever seems more attractive to you.

    Finally, there is a monumental change looming on the horizon that will impact all computer users. Microsoft looks to be essentially divorcing itself from Intel and like Google, Apple, and Samsung are creating their own proprietary ARM chips for future versions of Windows. Microsoft is insanely jealous that Google and Apple have a tight grip on the software they alow to run under Chrome OS, Android, and iOS. Microsoft screwed up with their earlier Windows RT efforts to have such control, but they are doubling down and this time looks to be burning their bridges behind them with Intel.

    There is a very real possibility that in 3 to 5 years’ time that Linux and BSD Unix OSes will be the only remaining free systems that maintain the concept of a standalone CPU you own and control running an OS and software that you own and control. For those unwilling or unable to make the jump, their interactions with their computer and the Internet at large will be fully monitored and controlled to the specific interactions allowed by Big Tech. Given how bad things are in 2020 before this happens, it should scare the crap out of anyone who thinks they might be subject to binge canceled in the future. Needless to say, everyone here at BJG probably qualifies.

    Think of the following:

    Computer User: Computer, go to http://bejohngalt.com/
    Apple/Google/Microsoft Computer: I’m sorry, Dave I can’t do that. And, by the way, your social credit has been deducted 20 Kamalas for this infraction and the appropriate authorities notified. Is there anything else I can do for you today?

    Re: 31,

    Everything that mpt said ^^^^.

    As to Linux (Since I run a WinDoze free household here):

    Distro: Linux Mint. It is the most Win-like experience using a Debian stable OS.
    Office: Libre Office. Free comes installed with Linux Mint right out of the box.
    Browser: Brave or Pale Moon.
    Mail: Proton Mail

    Not another dime need be spent, just keep doing apt-get update && apt-get upgrade consistently.

    —–

    As to office suites, I have almost ditched them. I do keep Libre Office on my boxes for that odd time when I need to read a .doc/x file. So what does the Dog use?

    A simple text editor of any choice. (I use Linux Xed as it has a built in spell checker.) Heck I had even used ole M$ Edit on really old hardware. Here is the trick — use Markdown syntax. Most of the latest releases of text editors auto-recognized the format and will do syntax highlighting. What’s Markdown — https://guides.github.com/pdfs/markdown-cheatsheet-online.pdf What do I get out of it? Freedom.

    Huh? Well that is the next tool in my quiver — Pandoc — https://pandoc.org/ Notice all the formats it supports? It it is not on this list you probably don’t need it as the saying goes. Essentially I can write a single Markdown source file as a master. Then use Pandoc to distribute into any format it supports. The freedom is I no longer have to worry about aging software and dropped file formats. I can always still read the original Markdown file as its ASCII readable. If you intend to write ‘War and Peace’ there is a tool called Ripple that will stitch all the Markdown files into a multichapter book.

    The articles I write for BJG I use the following tool chain:

    Markdown –>Aspell –>Pandoc –>HTML –>Upload to WordPress –>Select tags –>Publish.

    Once you get the flow down it is surprisingly fast. And if I want to release to MeWe? I just upload the Markdown file!

    mpt, if you have a lot of boiler plate text, look into a linux program called texpander. Saves a lot of typing.

    —–

    As to old tech reuse. You bet. I just bought a TP-Link dual band WiFi router. Blew away the installed OS and inserted DD-WRT OS. So for $50 I have WiFi 2.4/5Ghz, dual VLANs, wireless bridging, web interface, multichannel bonding on 5Ghz, etc. It may not be a Cisco box but does what I need here on the homestead.

    These days I look for equipment that the hacker community is upgrading thru software and save $$ for just a little investment in time.

    One better. I can’t understand the lemmings that ‘jump’ every time Apple says ‘Upgrade NOW!’ with every phone they release. I can drive over to the Ft. Worth Apple store on release day and see them all lined up like nice little sheep. Much of the Apple hardware is junk.

    But as a PSA there is a guy in NYC that does chip level repair on everything that Apple makes, phone or computer. He’s not Apple approved since he breaks all their rules, but he is the goto guy.

    mpt, M$ I project will abandon OS development in the future. There is no longer a dedicated desktop division anymore. Happen 3-4 years back.

    You would need a computer that can run VMWare or Virtual Box, or a second computer for use during the course.

    Drdog & MPT…you guys rock! I will deep dive on all this in about 10 days. Why? Cause we are helping our eldest move to (of all places) TEXAS, starting tomorrow. He is moving to the Ft. Worth area. So traveling a lot starting in the a.m.

    Thanks, fellas…I will circle back when I am back!

    Cheers!

    Maybe JR can pack up some of that Venice Beach weather and bring it here. Three days of gloomy weather has not been pleasant. Still its better than Seattle in January.

    Just wish Gateway Pundit wasn’t the only source I can find at present.

    If CNN (or any other tenacle of the MSM) discovered this they would bury it faster than a dog buries a bone (an analogy you can relate to). Unfortunately, Gateway Pundit was cried “wolf” too often.

    #39, thanks for all the additional tech tips.

    It would be interesting to see a channel on YouTube/Rumble/Bitchute dedicated to teaching people about decoupling themselves from Big Tech and why its important to do so. There are lots of YouTube channels that have all the bits and pieces, but one has to start from a pretty high knowledge base to know how to pull it all together. It would be a good pushback to all channels by drooling idiots who are just waiting to hype whatever Google/Apple/Microsoft are next pushing out to the sheep.

    It could also be kept largely non-political. I’m certain I use a lot of tech tools created by people with much different political views, and they mine, but as long as we all adhere to a baseline open-source ruleset, we are all good. Kind of like how this country used to operate.
