Firm And Protected

Recently I upgraded my Verizon Phone Plan. As part of it, Disney+ was included for free. I wasted little time in watching the Mandalorian. If you are not familiar with it, the main character is The Mandalorian, a bounty hunter with a code. His first job in the series is to capture this highly protected toddler. Generic bad guys are protecting the toddler, probably mostly ignoring him other than feeding him. The Mandalorian defeats the bad guys and captures the toddler. It turns out that the toddler is seemingly anonymous, so viewers call him Baby Yoda.

The Mandalorian turns Baby Yoda into the bad guys that hired him for the job. Then he has a change of heart, and fishes Baby Yoda out of the bad guy’s lair. For the rest of the series he is being hunted by the bad guys and the bounty hunters that they hire. There are lots of adventures, and through all of them, Baby Yoda becomes attached to the Mandalorian. We know this for sure because near the end of the series, a Jedi tells the Mandalorian this, as Jedi’s being able to sense feelings in another Force Sensitive person.

Anyway, throughout the series, the Mandalorian is guiding Baby Yoda on what to do and not do. Explaining that he is keeping him out of trouble with every intervention. Baby Yoda does not speak, but through the oh so cute expressions he seems to show that he understands. Perhaps he has never had such a person in his life before, and really appreciates the sense of security that comes from it.

In the last scene, Luke Skywalker tells the Mandalorian that the cute tyke views him as a father figure. Furthermore, Baby Yoda wants the Madalorian’s endorsement that going with Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi is the right thing to do. It was no doubt difficult to for Baby Yoda to give up the father figure who disciplined him when needed and gave him a sense of security.

Moral of the story — discipline those that you have authority over, and do it a manner such that they realize that you are protecting them.

    I don’t want to hear another damned thing about “slippery slope fallacy”. Within my lifetime, sodomites went from “please don’t bash us”, to “we just want tolerance”, to “we want equal rights”, to “we want to get married”, to “bake the cake, or else, bigot”, to “we’re coming for your children”, which was the plan all along.

    Anyone who still doesn’t recognize the facts that (1) we’re on a slippery slope, and (2) the slope is getting exponentially steeper is either too stupid to be worth speaking with, or a deceiver and an enemy.

    Yes. I’ve long observed the “slippery slope fallacy” has been more real than “fallacy” in my lifetime.

    Whiteguy update.

    About to head back to the ‘swamp’ been enjoying my time with family. The family reunion was awesome! There were 35 of us there, 16 kids (less my two). We rented a couple of condos in Purgatory Colorado and there was plenty of food, adult beverages, and good cheer!

    Crazy update:
    She still hasn’t paid the $25 Home Equity note…(she bounced a check at the beginning of the month).

    I sent her this note yesterday:
    The Bank called me yesterday and informed me that if the June 30,2021 payment was not made by today that they would be reporting it to the Credit Bureaus.

    As per the TO, you are responsible for this payment in a timely fashion.

    *Her first response:
    —I sent in the payment. If you would let the bank talk to me about the account that would be helpful.

    *My reply:
    As stated in the letter, the payment bounced. You are responsible.

    Here is all the information from the account. (I attached pdf with account info)

    *Her second response:
    Whiteguy…. You have kept all of the stimulus did you get the $250 tax credit for each kid too? Quit acting so damn greedy. You already owe me a lot on medical expenses for the kids. Can you not straighten this out? I told you the bank will not talk to me. Be a man for crying out loud this is $25

    HAHAHAHAHAHHA totally worth the credit hit just to see something like this!

    Y’all have a great weekend!

    Okay, about the Xi TB “vaccine”
    IF… you could convince me the Xi TB is really as dangerous as the CDC claims, and
    IF… you could convince me that the “vaccine” is 100% safe, and
    IF… you could convince me that the “vaccine” is 100% effective…
    I’m still taking a hard pass.
    Every XI TB vax available used the HEK 293 cell line…
    Some, like Johnson and Johnson, actually use the cell line to produce the vax that goes into your arm (shudder)
    Some, like Moderna, just use the cell line to test the vax.
    Cell line HEK 293 was produced by taking stem cells from an elective abortion of a female fetus in the Netherlands.
    In other words, every version of this vaccine is produced using cells cloned from a murdered baby girl.
    Regardless of what Fauci, or my employer, or my parents, or anyone else says… I WILL NOT drink from the cup of the altar of Molech.
    Even if my physical life is in danger, and their vax really will protect me, I WILL NOT.

    Not sure what you referring to. Trump got millions more votes this time. Of course it can never be enough when the dems just stopped the machines, counted how many they needed and then dumped those “votes” in.

    Now we know that our votes in dem controlled districts won’t likely ever matter again.

    Trump’s biggest problem was that he had no idea what he was getting into. He foolishly believed (along with the rest of us) that the system was just a little out-of-whack and could be fixed without actually having to burn it to the ground and starting all over again.

    People said that Trump didn’t have the right people around him and I think that’s true but think about this…

    DeSantis has been making some pretty good moves and is getting a national platform. What if by some MIRACLE he actually got elected President and he took 1000 really terrific people who knew WTF we wanted and were dedicated to it with him to D.C.?
