Saturday's Siren

Disabilities

There are a lot of disabilities that are 100% legitimate. Some people are messed up and are considered disabled. Some receive benefits from the government to assist them to live despite that disability. 

The World Health Organization, a component of the United Nations, is on sort of a rampage, designating who is and is not disabled. I didn't think that I was disabled, but apparently I am because I'm over 55 years of age and I may not be able to do what I could do as well as I could when I was 25. Well, that's a shocker. According to the WHO, if you're disabled, you deserve compensation from the rest of the people who are not. 

The World Health Organisation has recently included "people who can't get laid" as being disabled. (read more here). So if you're too hideous or too socially inept to find a suitable sexual partner, you're disabled. The word "suitable" to some of us could be taken to mean that there is no super model (most are lesbians) who are interested in us, means that we should receive distributions from the people who can get laid.

There's a caveat above since if you can't have children, you deserve compensation too. No sodomite relationship produces children. Thus all LGBTQ people deserve distributions from heterosexuals. Isn't socialism grand?

Of course all of this foolishness dilutes the validity of those people who are genuinely disabled.

I think that it's time that they move the UN from New York City to Venezuela or someplace equally enlightened and we remove ourselves from that band of freaks, misfits and communists.

The Magic Kingdom - At War

The US is no longer dependent on oil sheikdoms for energy, and we're now exporting oil. Which the Democrat Party is trying to stop with their 'Green New Deal'. None of what they say makes the least bit of sense. But my point here is that the US has entered a new era where Middle Eastern oil and gas has far less to do with us than it used to. It's a great day in America. (unless you listen to the corrupt, wicked, nasty, filthy, lying mainstream media)

Saudi Arabia is one somewhat typical of the rotten, corrupt nations of the Muslim Middle East. And I find it interesting to follow their war to protect their southern border from invading Houthis (backed by Iran). On June 5, the Houthi army seized 20 military positions inside Saudi Arabia. Houthi officials promised to release video footage of the daring attack.
Houthi spokesman Yahya Sarei said on 5 June that the positions in Najran province were captured in a "surprise" offensive carried out over the past three days.
Sarei claimed that 200 Saudi troops were killed in the offensives and that military equipment was seized. The Houthi news service said the Saudi-led coalition flew 75 air attacks against the Houthi force.

Despite overwhelming military technology and forces from multiple Arab states, the Saudi-led coalition remains unable to defend Saudi borders from Houthi incursions. That condition has not improved since March 2015 when Saudi intervention began.

There is a move on the part of the Saudis to buy massive armaments from the US. It's income for the military industrial complex and many believe that no many how many weapons that the Saudis buy, their army won't be able to stand up to even the most feeble military push. (the Houthis from Yemen)

Saudi Incompetence in Sudan

The African Union (AU) suspended Sudan's membership. The AU's Peace and Security Department said in a post on Twitter on Thursday, 6 June, that Sudan's participation in all AU activities would be suspended with immediate effect - "until the effective establishment of a civilian-led transitional authority," which it described as the only way to "exit from the current crisis".
Saudi Arabia reportedly approved an attack on the demonstrators. Middle East Eye reported on 6 June that an anonymous, well-informed Sudanese military “expert” said he understood that plans to destroy the protest camp in Khartoum had been discussed during recent visits to Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Egypt by Lieutenant General Abdel Fattah al-Burhan, the head of the Transitional Military Council (TMC). 
“The breaking up of the sit-in was one of the main points on the agenda that was discussed,” the expert said. “Unless he (i.e., al-Burhan) got the green light from his regional allies he would not have been able to commit such a crime.”
Supposedly the Saudis and Emiratis promised Sudanese junta $3 billion in aid, which bought them a lot of influence in Sudan. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s strategic security decisions are invariably antithetical to democracy; seldom succeed in their primary purposes and leave trails of Arabs killed.

WWM (an update)

There is still work going on up at the White Wolf Mine. This is a brief update. I planned on one year of construction and it's turned into two. The exterior is being painted...finally.



It snowed as recently as ten days ago, but we have a warm patch that is necessary for the paint to adhere properly.

I took the cell phone and did a walk around for your edification, snapping a few pictures.

Building this custom home/hovel has been an ordeal and the general contractor is not the least bit honest. I can suggest to you that the work now going on is not a tribute to his integrity so much as it is a sign of his cowardice. He is concerned about what I might do. Those of you know me, understand that I NEVER threaten. 
The dog that barks seldom bites. 
And moving on, it's close to being completed and I'm looking forward to not having workmen around the house every day.

But I would never do this again (Fredd - I know you're in the planning phase). 


Life in rural Arizona is good. It's bucolic. I saw a bobcat running down the old logging road behind the house at breakfast the other day. Elk are common guests as are deer. I'm on the phone much of the day for work, but I can live with it.


And the scenery in the area is breathtaking. This (below) is the Clear Creek Gorge, which runs to the south of my house. We have big horn sheep climbing up and down those cliffs.
