PLANET VALENTI NEWS AND COMMENTARY

(FORTRESS OF SOLITUDE, THE WEEKEND EDITION SEPT. 23-5, 2022) — It’s been 2,499 outings that led up to today.

Yes, THE PLANET celebrates our 2,500th column — enough for more than 30 full length novels. And it all began as a lark, a morning writing exercise, the equivalent of a literary gym workout before the match.

We do so in fitting fashion, turning the commentary over to you, our readers. THE PLANET has always believed that all writing, save personal journals, are not complete until they are READ. A piece of writing stuck in the desk drawer or on a hard drive to never see the light of day is that tree forest that falls but isn’t heard. By reading, that “tree” makes a noise.

—————————————- ooo * ooo —————————————-

2,500 columns down and who knows how many to go? Pick a number, any number, from Zero to Infinity. That’s where THE PLANET’s future will be discovered

—————————————- 000 * 000 —————————————-

It’s your turn, now. Open lines are waiting for you.

Celebrate the only game in town that not doesn’t just believe in free speech but acts on it and, more importantly, hosts and allows it. That would be THE PLANET.

Have a great weekend, everybody.

—————————————————————————–

Happiness: Using your talents to the fullest of your ability along the lines of excellence” — Sir Donald Turpentine, Knight of the Bath.

“OPEN THE WINDOW, AUNT MILLIE.”

LOVE TO ALL.

Putin warned the West that he is prepared to use nuclear weapons. Putin says that is not bluffing. That is scary! Billions of people around the world would die in a nuclear weapons war. The remaining people who somehow survive would live in a radiation-poisoned Earth. Human Beings are unable and unwilling to live in peace. I cannot believe that this is happening. We are living in a real-world nightmare that I hope will end soon without a would-be nuclear weapons war.

JOnathon, just got back from BJs and they already have Christmas trees lit up in the store. I think they may want to do Christmas early in case Putin cancels it with a nuclear option. Don’t laugh people….this guy has gone a bit wacko and America has contributed greatly to his current embarrassment in Ukraine. He may lash out with the only option he has left.

Jon – worrying about nuclear winter is 1980 when the American Patriot spirit was live. Now, with communism on our immediate horizon – who gives a fuck about annihilation? The unending death of the spirit is far worse than the quick death of the body.

Communism is corruption. That’s all it is, and total corruption is totalitarian enslavement of you.

“Congress secures first Hunter Biden whistleblowers as memos unmask lucrative gas deals with China
https://justthenews.com/accountability/political-ethics/bidens-family-sought-lucrative-deals-china-fossil-fuels-he-now

comment image

Rep. James Comer (R-KY) went on with John Solomon from Just the News on RAV on Thursday.
Rep. Comer recently obtained new documents that show Hunter and Joe Biden were working to sell American natural gas and drilling assets to Communist China.

The sale would have allowed China to take control of our natural gas industry through the deal.
The documents show Hunter was working with the Chinese to get keys to an office in DC for himself, Jim Biden, Joe Biden and Dr. Jill Biden.

But there’s more… Representative Comer says he has two new whistleblowers that worked with Hunter and they are ready to expose it all when the Republicans take control of Congress.”

“House Democrats on Tuesday blocked an inquiry into 150 reports of suspicious financial activity surrounding the international business dealings of Hunter Biden and other Biden family members, which Republicans said could compromise President Joe Biden. 
Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee generally had a disciplined message in opposing oversight of potential conflicts of interest for the president, his son Hunter, and his brother Jim: What about Donald Trump? ”

If anyone needed more motivation to Vote No on 4, none other than Pittsfield’s own proven lying piece of $hit, Helen “Handgun” Moon, is promoting a vote yes on 4 on her social media pages.

Always keep in mind, Handgun wanted to defund the Pittsfield Police. As much gun violence as there is going on in Pittsfield, and Helen wanted to further cripple the police by cutting their funds. But she believes voting yes on four will make “safer roads.”

“You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.” – Ray Bradbury

If –

By Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you

Are losing theirs and blaming it on you.

If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,

But make allowances for their doubting too:

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,

Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,

Or being hated don’t give way to hating,

And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise.

If you can dream – and not make dreams your master;

If you can think-and not make thoughts your aim,

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster

And treat those two impostors just the same:

If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken

Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,

Or watch the things you gave life to, broken,

And stoop and build ’em up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all of your winnings

And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,

And lose, and start again at the beginnings

And never breathe a word about your loss:

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew

To serve your turn long after they are gone,

And so hold on when there is nothing in you

Except the Will which says to them: ‘Hold on!’

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,

Or walk with Kings-nor lose the common touch,

If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,

If all men count with you, but none too much:

If you can fill the unforgiving minute

With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,

Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,

And-which is more- you’ll be a Man, my son!

Here is what I found on Galvin’s website refering to question 4. It doesn’t contain words like “illegal” or “undocumented”, it uses phrases like  “Massachusetts residents who cannot provide proof of lawful presence in the United States”. So getting a drivers license makes them a “lawful presence”? Sounds more and more to me like a pardon for the people who broke the law coming across our borders illegally.

Can someone who gives a shit about Pittsfield please try to get a handle on why there seems to be an epidemic of motor vehicle accidents in the city? There must have been a dozen telephone poles knocked down just this year plus a few traffic lights. Plus a bunch of rollovers. Is everyone stoned, on their phones or just being roadway assholes or all three? Whatever it is someone needs to address it immediately. It is a huge safety issue and you don’t want to show up at this emergency room if you do not absolutely have to these days.
The mayor is not going to talk about it because it adds to all other signs of incompetency she is marked with. The police dept. has their officers tied up with these accidents all day long. Must be more important things they could do. Can’t the chief make some kind of statement or plea for sanity on the roadways? How about the health commissioner?

Keeping all this (including tragic bicycle accidents) out of the newspaper on purpose is a disservice to the community.

My guess is because the Police have been handcuffed by our current policies so they are not pulling people over for tickets that will be thrown out. Just yesterday I was driving south on 8 and a tan jeep was passing cars going north where it was only double yellow lines. I was in a procession of cars and all we could do to avoid the accident was pull over into the breakdown lane. Do you think that person was pulled over? Do you think that driver even cared about the danger he put everyone in? This world has blown a gasket as my dad would say…crazy times!! Try to stay safe and have a great weekend!

IF LOVE IS THE ANSWER, WHAT, was the question!

Side effects of Love

By Radhika Karia

Love is the dead-end of life’s journey,

It’s a lock that has no single key.

It’s a means to learn how to cry,

It’s the story two people live in complete lie.

It’s the darkness that can’t be escaped in light,

It’s the wrong that can’t be ever made right.

Love to me is like paper that can tear,

It is a passage that leads one no where.

My expectation would be to come out alive. It’s not that I’m indifferent to the personal experience aspect of love, but you can’t live on love. As to the rest of your hypothetical, it’s JUST YOU, YOUR CAN, or two of JUICY PEACHES, and a shiny sharp serrated knife. Oh, and a barrage of unfriendly bullets, but none with your name on them. LOVE, however, no matter what your personal experience, is MUCH MORE COMPLICATED.

I get it, DEATH and TAXES. 1000 times more crimes are committed in the name of LOVE than of Hate. Love and Hate are two sides of the same coin. But I was referring to surviving perchance for another walk among the fall leaves, another glimpse of snow sparkling as if it had been dusted by billions of diamonds and waking up to spring crocuses popping up through a bed of freshly fallen snow. But in reality, and having been in a foxhole, if I’m feeling a bit optimistic, I limit my planning only to the next 2 minuets.

City Council meetings without the G-man would be very boring, he’s trying to save us all a fortune at the cities water plants and he is at every city Council meeting trying to help us all.

G is a tenacious individual and he will fight for us again. As I said in a previous post G is out there by himself, none of the planet posters are seen or heard at city council meetings. The G-man wishes Dan a well-deserved thank you for his relentless support of the little guy,people who love people are decent people, Dan falls into that category as does the G-man.

I wish Dan and Craig Godspeed.God knows we need them

I would never support someone who posts as “Fan of Migrants” at a city council meeting. People who have entered the country illegally are bringing crime & diseases to the city. Our mayor wants to build them a brand new shelter on West Housatonic St. with your tax dollars.
If you are a migrant fan, why not open your rental units to them?

Lenny the G-man always identifies himself on his show and it’s city Council meetings, and he always talks to talk while you walk the walk, tell us your name so we can ignore your posts in the future. Also identify those illegal immigrants who are you so cowardly talk about on your post. You’re a sad excuse to mankind. Go back to your cave and don’t come on here in till you learn humility toward your fellow human being. You represent the worst in mankind, go introduce yourself to the G man at a city council meeting, the king of media is waiting for you coward.

An open road where I can breathe
Where the lowest low is calling to me
I can pull myself back up back down
Stuck together like a readymade

And nobody knows where we been
Cancelled rations are running thin
Watches tick out of tune
Falling apart like a readymade

My bags are waiting in the next life

Rubbish piles fresh and plain
Empty boxes in a pawn shop brain
License plates stowaway
Standing in line like a readymade

And my bags are waiting in the next life

An open road where I can breathe
Where the lowest low is calling to me
I can pull myself back up back down
Stuck together like a readymade

And my bags are waiting in the next life

Just reading a book on the FBI and it got me wondering what happened to them? The organization was once admired for their ethical embrace of rule and law but now they are just political pawns that are laughed at for being corrupt all the way to the Director’s chair. J.Edgar must be turning over in his grave. As I’m reading this I can’t help to correlate it to our government systems, how at one point they worked for the people/citizens of this great country but now it’s all about themselves. I hope the younger generation can turn this around, if not I don’t think their future will be so bright.

Well, if J. Edger Hoover is turning over in his grave, he better take care not to wrinkle his pretty frilly frock. J. Edger Hoover, who lived with his mommy well into his adult years, until she died, just like gimpy simpleton Pee Pee white, was a powerful dangerous deviant.

It has been converted, I’m assuming post 9/11, from a law enforcement agency into an ‘intelligence gathering’ agency. Look it up. That’s a report from a whistleblower.

I just read the book the Return of the Gods by Jonathan Cahn. The author of the book believes that the problems in this country began as we turned away from God. As prayer was banned in the schools and secular beliefs took hold. Turning away from God, as so many of our institutions in this country have done, leaves a vacuum and that vacuum is being filled by pagan beliefs like the worship of the planet, the unimportance of human life, the indoctrination of children in gender confusion, and school teachers instructing them on their sexuality. We want to blame politicians for all of our problems, but these really bad politicians are in power because of a spiritual crisis in this country.

The RCA gives all kind of financial assistance to refugees and immigrants. I think most people would be all for it if they were coming into the country legally and not at such a massive invasion.

My Grandparents, immigrated through Ellis Island (backgound AND disease screened) , LEGALLY, learned ENGLISH and became US CITIZENS LEGALLY, then raised 13 children before FDR/welfare.

The “Biden invasion” is criminal, and the IM-POTUS should be impeached.

The young don’t believe in God and that is a huge problem for this country and the world. Instead they fall prey to school instructors telling them that pedophiles are really just youth attracted individuals. Nothing bad to see here folks. Just move along. Their values have to come from somewhere and they are getting their values from Tic Toc, other social media, and the school system that has turned into an indoctrination machine for politics, sexuality, and other far left issues.

No 50,000 pound rock that I know of, just repent for you sins according to the Bible. That’s why Jesus was sent here.

Republicans believe in teaching the people to fish not giving them the fish. This way they can take personal responsibility for their well being and have skills to become productive citizens.
