Dark Days Of The Winter Solstice 2019

The latest Gonzo journalism rant from the frozen north

The Winter Solstice has arrived again like the astronomical clock that it is. With that comes the long dark nights and the bitter cold of deep Winter, particularly up here on the Last Great Frontier of Alaska.

Right now we only get around 6 hours of daylight where I live in the Matanuska-Susitna River Valley, and the outside temperature tonught here is 4F or -16C, whichever scale you prefer it is fucking COLD!

Not so down under in Oz, where they are setting record heat nearing 122F or 50C, and baically the entire province of New South Wales is on FIRE. NSW is where most of the population of Oz lives, it's where the Sydney Opera House is located.

One of our Diners, John of Wallan lives in the neighboring province of Victoria where the other Oz Big Shity of Melbourne is located, and they are doing a bit better than NSW but the fire danger is still EXTREME. He lives on a Doomstead outside of Melbourne and is prepping for fighting a fire that threatens his home for as long as he can, in the event one targets him and brings HELL to his doorstep.

Inside the Diner, we all wish him well with this fight and the long HOT summer they are likely to have down there on the bottom portion of the Globe. Below is a good recap of the state of Emergency now in effect in New South Wales:

These are also metaphorically ver Dark Days on the Political front both here in the Fascist States of Amerika and across the Pond in Jolly Old England as well. Over here, our Commander-in Corruption Donalditry Tumpovetsky has been Impeached by CONgress, and now this is due to go across the hall in that Sewer to the Senate for a Bogus Trial which everyone already knows what the outcome will be since the Senate is controlled by the Repugnant Party and the Senators are basicallly El Trumpo's lapdogs.

The Demodope Party potential adversaries for Trumpty-Dumpty to knock him down off his Wall have narrowed the field down to four with a reasonable chance of succes at the Democratic Nationa Convention after the Primaries and Caucuses finish up around June or July I think. The Top Contenders right now appear to be Uncle Joe Biden and Mayor Pete Buttigieg, slightly to the Left of the Repugnants but still Right of Center on an absolute scale of Left vs Right. To the left of them but still Right of Center are Bernie Sanders and Liz Wareen, representing the "Liberal-Progressive" wing of the the Demodope Party.

All this sets up for what is likely to be a Brokered Convention at the DNC this year, which is likely to be a real HOOT! lol. I don't think the Theater can match the action at the DNC in 1968, but it could be close.

All of this is covered in more depth in this week's Collapse Morning Wake-Up Call Video rant (first video above), and I share my Winter Soltice Sunday Brunch selections as well! 🙂 Coming up later in January I will be doing more SNAP Card Gourmet Cooking vids, where I go voer how to eat cheaply and nutritiously on a very low food budget, at least currently here in the FSoA. Coming next week is a recap of the Year in Doom from my partner in Collapse Chronicling, Surly.
