Hi Mark! (Assuming it is you this week.) I trust your recovery is going swimmingly.
What are your thoughts on the Biden classified-docs "scandal"? People have been leaping on this somewhat desperately. I tend to think that both this and the Trump "scandal" in the same area have been massively overblown. Still, this "came out" (to the relevant people, anyway) before the 2022 election. Why do we learn it now?

Mark, how is your recovery going? Are you successful at disconnecting from the news cycle, or sneaking peeks at the computer? Please take care.

Hi Mark, I read today that China is due to soon publish its birth stats for 2022, and the expectation is that the overall population will be down for the first time since 1961 - the final year of the Great Famine. What does this mean for the CCP in the years to come? Should Beijing Biden cash in his cheque sooner rather than later...? Hope you are feeling better - Ian

Mark, The "Gaul" of you and your lengthy, recuperative luxury in France....I do pray for its benefits for you. On the topic of France....While it is the right - nay, duty - of every red-blooded English-speaker to make sport of, and denigrate, the French whenever possible, I've always admired their strident defense of their culture and language. But, in your time there, have you noticed any of our perverse Anglo "wokeness" creeping into French society? Are the young people there proving susceptible to the insane "political correctness" of the English-speaking world? (I understand that tattoos have become popular among the youth..... a bad omen...)

So I guess Prince Harry's book came out and the world is united in asking the following question: is Harry actually retarded? We all know he's an idiot, in that he constantly makes bad decisions and doesn't think things through nor show an inclination to do so, but while we've been laughing at him, has he actually legitimately been mentally disabled this whole time? An idiot can always improve if he just puts in the effort so making fun of him is both a duty as well as fun but going after a person with a real disability is just cruel. Is Harry riding the short bus? Is he licking the glass? Did Megan marry a less endearing Forest Gump?

Mark, have you been keeping up with your reading while convalescing? Have you read Prince Harry's "Spare" or listened to the audio book? Would you like a summary? It's fiction, hardly a memoir, and utter rubbish. Do you think that the Sussexes will be invited to King Charles' coronation? How would it be possible to have them there without wrecking the whole event? I have this feeling that Harry may meet a very sad end. What say you?

This is a general sort of question- are all the news items we emote over trivial, with us missing the big picture? I recently viewed a YouTube video in which the author made the strong case that overpopulation, resource depletion and environmental degradation are more vital concerns than celebrity or political scandals. Is modern culture one vast hedonistic bubble? Sorry, not trying to sound like a raving Greenie, but it's worth considering.

Have you seen the ridiculous costumes of the Miss Universe contestants? Miss Ukraine is getting all the press, but all the costumes are nutty looking. The announcer describing Miss Ukraine's Archangel Michael costume did not pronounce "Kieeeeeeeeeeeev" properly (assuming the elongated "e" is the correct pronunciation).

Hello Mark, I hope you are getting plenty of rest and that you are feeling better. Do you think that the war in Ukraine is going to be over at any time in the near future? Or is it just too profitable for Ukraine right now? The Trudeau government just announced that Canada is sending new fighter jets there-something that the Canadian military has been asking for apparently for many years. What is going on? Why was Zelensky at the Golden Globes? Cui bono?

At the moment, The ruling class are telling us to prepare for a "mild recession" this year. Is this going to go the same way as the time we were told inflation would be "transitory"? What are your thoughts?

I am surprised by how quickly people surrender their freedom in the US these days. I've been giving it a lot of thought lately.
Since the Social Security act in 1935, it seems like all roads legislative head in one direction - politicians cultivating a dependent industrial complex for job security. I think Rush used to say "you can't beat Santa Claus."
Fast forward to today, the majority of folks seem to abdicate all personal responsibility and blindly follow every recommendation some so-called "expert" shouts on tik tok.
Any thoughts on how quickly half of the country, from all walks of life, are now willing to blindly do what they're told and look at the government as their benefactor? Might be too heavy and too broad for a Friday Q&A, but it really bothers me.
Hope this finds you well

Is this recent spate of uncovering Senile Joe's classified documents the Deep State clearing the way for Kamala?

Good day, Mark-I do hope that it is you hosting the Q&A and that you are feeling better. My question to you is whether or not you think the Deep State is turning now on Joe Biden? The leaks about him having classified documents seems so strange to me. What do you think this is about? Who might be behind all this?

Fellow, Club members, surely the news that Kevin McCarthy is now speaker of the house in the US has reinvigorated Mark with a renewed purpose for existence in this world. Surely, the formation of church style committees to finally get to the bottom of things is a reason to live.
Speaking of finding answers, have any of those comely French nurses tipped our maestro as to who blew up the Nordstrom pipeline? That story seems to have oddly gone quiet the last month here in the US but considering the Europeans still have a couple more months or so to go of winter too, they might have some thoughts. What say you?

Why is it acceptable to speculate on causes of death -- suicide, old age, drug OD, and the like -- but we can't ask or guess that someone's death could have been caused by the mRNA vax? If one of us asks, "Was he vaxxed?" The others all do their best Greta Thunberg impersonation, "How dare you!"

There doesn't seem to be a critical mass of disgruntlement among the hoi polloi regarding the reckless treatment of classified government documents by "President" Biden. What will it take for enough people to have had enough of the corruption and begin to turn things around.

In defence of the French they certainly did great work around D Day keeping part of the German forces busy.
