It’s feels everyone I know has got Covid at the moment. Here, at the bottom of the planet we are solidly into our third wave. South Africa is doing this, (weird) phased vaccination drive. Weird insofar as I would have just thrown all the vaccines into a pit and let people fight over them, which seeing as I feel pretty confident about my martial prowess against the old, infirm and geriatric, would likely have seen me with some sort of resistance by now*. Also spontaneous order yo.
*this is why no-one wants to live in your libertarian hellscape Joey.
Alas our esteemed government has opted for what some might consider a more ‘economically oriented’ approach to stabbing people with dead baby cells and microchips. Medical professionals and those over sixty got priority. And now teachers. The (evil) monopoly dictates that I am quite low on the list. So maybe I’ll get Pfizer’d up by the end of the year. Assuming all the countries with bigger GDP’s than corner store bodega stop hoarding the stuff.
I am obviously annoyed that I can’t just use my wealth and privilege to jump the queue and that I have to ‘wait my turn’ with the rest of the proletariat. Is this what being taken down a notch feels like? Because it’s awful.

In other news. John McAfee got suicided. Which, in libertarian circles means… well… you have to appreciate that a lot (okay, maybe the vast majority) of libertarians are quite mad. (Not me obviously, ha ha). Anyways, to a lot of libertarians John McAfee was a paragon, an exemplar of courage and tax avoidance.
I would not have voted for him to become president of… well probably anything. I like the Libertarian party candidates to be more like Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, Jo Jorgensen and Spike Cohen, and less like… well, John McAfee and Vermin Love Supreme. Assuming you even believe in voting (which is always going to be a contentious issue among libertarians, myself included).
Personally I think McAfee may actually have been insane, but I quite liked him nonetheless. I have a soft-spot for the oddballs… those who build armored bulldozers in their workshops or flee to Belize…. and then murder their neighbors, allegedly.
Do I believe he committed suicide?
Um… I have no idea. Mental health can be a very dark place in which to dwell. And… I don’t think he was ‘well’. Although according to the memes he recently stumbled onto Hilary Clinton’s emails… and I always believe in the veracity of memes. (I quickly right click on veracity to make sure it means what I think it means… and we’re good)
And since we are on the topic of all things cray-cray…
I note (with scorn) that transgender weightlifters are now allowed to compete at the Olympics. I feel that I need to state this for the record; this is complete and utter bullshit. If that counts against me one day, so be it. This is seriously messed up and mad. I really feel like I’ve slipped into an alternate ‘idiotcracy’ reality where things have taken a serious bend towards lunacy.
To counterweight this, I still think competitive sports are dumb (especially the Olympics). I don’t really understand why anyone would want to compete… to me competition just smacks of its own mental health issues. The fact that you need to demonstrate that you are the best at something, in this case lifting heavy things above your head. Well whoop-dee doo, good for you.
Although apparently some of us do care.
It boggles my mind, that someone will get paid a million dollars for coming second in a competition where the object is to walk around and hit a white little ball into the ground. This might be the definition of insanity in my opinion.
So I think I’ve hit the perfect trifecta here. Corona, government conspiracy and transgender athletes. How to get your post shadow banned and/or flagged for hate speech/terrorism.
If you find me hanged in my cell know that I definitely didn’t whack myself. Just like John McAfee.
