So....less than two weeks left:

13 days. 

"Beat the rush, panic early."

If I were you, I'd go shopping. While there may not be the selection in the stores you might like, I'd go purchase some food and water, especially if one lives on a "Blue" city (or, for that matter, any city). 

Plan for some "civil unrest". After all, we are likely to not have "election DAY" but rather "Election WEEK". as mail in ballots that arrive after election day are counted as much as 5 days after. It may be that we have no clear president for as much as a week. 

I fully expect the Left to become violent....followed possibly by folks on the Right deciding they ahve had enough and taking action to quell it. 

Food, water, fuel. (Ammo is pretty much nonexistent unless one is lucky, or is willing to pay 5 times for it). Buy it and store might be that the wise move is to stay home for a week or more. 

Don't forget the pet food either!

If you don't already have it, try to get a 2 (or more) week supply of your maintenance medicine....just to be sure you have some if you can't get it.

Kinda hard to believe them anymore

 So the evening "News" is telling us that "Hospitals are overwhelmed" ((again), even though they weren't overwhelmed last time) by the new "Surge" in Coronavirus cases. 

Maybe this time they are telling us the truth. Last time, there were very few hospitals that were "overwhelmed".

Much like the little boy that cried WOLF!, the media has lied time and time again, and I find it hard to give any credence to the warnings of doom this time.

The statistics are structured to frighten without giving a real, honest assessment. They tell us the total overall number of cases (since March, in most cases) and tell us the number of new cases without telling us how many of those new cases are symptomatic, how many are hospitalized....And they trumpet the number of deaths...but they make it difficult to find out any usable information....They don't tell us what percentage of tests show a positive, for instance....

When people or organizations use statistics to frighten, rather than inform, I become suspicious. 

I laughed and laughed

Equal protection under the law

 So didn't Paul Manafort get convicted of failing to register as a "Foreign Agent"? 

Why aren't they going after Hunter Biden for the same thing? 

Just asking....for a friend

Like a Covid death prediction

 The forecast for the winds was less than on-target..

Highest wind was 38 knots...more or less 44 miles per hour.

Most wind gusts were much less.

Power only flickered once, and that was for less than 30 seconds as the automatics isolated the short. 

All prepped up (not really) and nowhere to go....

ETA: If they can't predict the weather 12 hours in advance, what makes them think they can predict Climate 50 years into the future?

I can't believe that people pay money for them

 So I had to have some warranty work done on the Truck.

The Dodge dealer gave me a brand new Jeep Renegade to drive. 

What a shitbox.

The transmission never stops shifting, the dash looks like it was laid out by a 4th grader, and the controls feel cheap.

The acceleration is mediocre at best, the engine sounds like a sewing machine eating gravel while tripping on meth, and the handling is almost as good as my Kubota tractor.  The Fiat 124 was a better car 50 years ago.

I cannot believe, as competitive as the small car market is that Jeep sells these things. For $22k, one can buy a LOT of small car from Toyota, Hyundai, Nissan, Kia, even Ford and Chevy and Subaru. None of them are luxury cars, but at least they are decently engineered. 

On the bright side, the outward vision from the Renegade was decent...and the turn signals worked. 

oughta be fun today:

 50 MPH wind gusts forecast. 

I expect to lose power....for how long I dunno. 

Getting the laundry done early, and planning on losing both power and internet for a while. 

If need be, I can fire up the generator, but as it isn't cold enough to need heat, I might not bother, 

No flying today though.

Of COURSE its "Disinformation"

 So the media is now floating the theory that the Biden Emails (see below posts) are "disinformation" from "Russia" via the Ukraine via Rudy Giuliani 

Odd how the Ukraine (which is where Hunter Biden was "employed" by Burisma for his father's influence during the Obama Administration) has so much power, so many "Operatives" that can control so much influence over the American People and their choice for President, innit? 

Nice attempt to discredit. Nice deflection too. 

Are the emails legit? I dunno. They do fit the theory that has been floating around for a year or more, and it does seem odd that Burisma would hire Hunter Biden for his (nonexistent) "Expertise"...(not to mention the CHinese, but that is another story) ......I mean, they were paying his some serious coin to do........??

Thursday, October 15, 2020

So...the story now is:

 That someone hacked emails from Hunter Biden and "inserted" the "fake" emails in question into the file...

Then put them on a hard drive of a computer that was then taken to the repair shop and left for 90 days...all done months ago so that the data could be released right now. Linking the emails to Biden and making the release "clean". 

Spin, spin, spin. and yet more spin. 

If we could hook a generator to this story we could power Manhattan. 

So...a question:

 It is reported that there is an email chain that links Joe Biden, Hunter Biden, Burisma, and other figures "arranging" for Joe to "meet" with officials that could influence (eliminate by threatening the dispersal of US aid) the corruption charges against Burisma....

Supposedly gotten off a laptop brought in for repair...and left, never to be picked up.

Whose content was subsequently copied by the shop owner, who then also contacted the FBI...who confiscated the laptop.

Now, this all happened about the time of Trump's corruption charges and subsequent investigation....

And yet the FBI withheld this evidence and remained silent.  Odd, that, innit?

Forget the millions of Taxpayer dollars spent investigating the bogus claims, TH FBI KNEW THAT THEY WERE BOGUS AND HID EVIDENCE AND REMAINED SILENT. 

Think about that. Again, proof that the FBI wants Trump gone. That the FBI conspired to get rid of him. 

"While Black"

 So, suddenly, YoutTube thinks that I care about the propaganda campaign that shows the terrible treatments of black people by cops simply because of the color of their skin.

The harassment that black men endure....oddly enough, all when they ahve video and oddly enough all in the past two months. 

Strange timing, innit?


You can find many more if you look. Most in the past 2 or three months. 

Of course, this only happens to black people, never to whites nor hispanics, right?

So...lemme get this straight:

 Seems tht the Democrats questioners of Amy Coney Barrett want her to be impartial, but also want her to tell them how she would decide some Liberal causes...

I found them to be irritating. They want her to prejudge the issues, even before there is an argument made one way or another. They want her to choose a side...

It would seem that they don't want an impartial judge, one that would do what we expect the Supremes to do...Examine and judge a case based on laws and the Constitution, but rather on ideology...(so long as it is Liberal Ideology, that is).

I find that disgusting.

Interesting viewpoint:

 So it would seem that the Leftists and the DNC (and the media, but I am being redundant here) are all of the opinion that Judges, especially Supreme Court Justices, are there to legislate by proclamation rather than interpret the law. 

I find that scary, that they miss entirely the reason we have a Legislative, an Executive and a Judicial branch, and what their roles are. 

Columbus day

 And as usual, the LEFT wants to replace it with something else...."Indigenous People's day"

It is, at the end, simply another attempt to erase history. 

We need to stop this shit soon.

Huh, what a surprise:

 NBA will stop pushing BLM message on the court after ratings plummet

Who would have thought? I mean, we all want politics with our sports, right? Strife in the things we view for relaxation...yeah, we want that...

Reports are that viewership is down by nearly 70%. 

Saturday, October 10, 2020

They must be scared:

 SO watching NBC news....looking for a weather report.

And I see a "News" segment titled "Inequality in America" about the police shooting Hispanic men, and hispanic men having to have "The Talk" with their kids. (Seems that it is the women in Black families that have to have the talk?)  How terrible it is that police officers are treating the Hispanic community.

 I read this ad desperation by the Dems. They have realized that LOTS of Hispanics are gonna jump ship, simply because they are better off, despite the "Covid", under Trump than they were under the previous DNC rule. 

Bet on it. 

Instrument Pilot

 Yeah, you might have noticed that I have been posting very little and what I did post was not my "A" game. 

That's 'cause I was studying hard for my Instrument exam and checkride. 

And all that work paid off.

I now hold an Instrument rating on my Private Pilot certificate. 

I am an instrument pilot.

5 hours of oral exam, and a 1.4 hour flight.

All culminating in a landing on a 180 runway with a 220 wind at 21 GUSTING 34...(and it was a good landing too). 

So now my ability to go places just  got a bit greater. If this Covid shit would finish (or after the election) I will put it to good use. 

It only took a year longer than I had expected it to take, but I got there.

lot of truth here

 Borrepatch posts a comparison on Glowbal Warming and Covid. 

Interesting how the parallels are there, the manipulation of data, and then the change in how the data is presented. 

I'd noticed the change in data, but hadn't made the connection to how the Glowbal Warming Climate change was presented.

See ya on the other side:

 So I have been busy, but I learned last night that Eddie Van Halen, a significant music figure in my early years, has died of cancer. 

Bummer. I guess this is how my parents felt as the icons from their youth passed away one by one.

Sad Press

 The disappointment is palpable. 

Donne didn't die (YET!) 

BUT...He did remove his mask. OMG!

His going home is, of course, terrible. Because reasons. 

In the meantime, the rest of the country doesn't seem to care one way or another. 

Except, of course those with TDS, they have something new to froth up about.  And they have.

Have ya noticed?

 While the press is focused  on Donald Trump's condition, as far as I have seen none of them are asking how the First Lady is doing....Odd, that. One might think that her condition would matter as well. It does to me, anyway

I guess that it only matters if she is dying. 

I think that tells us something about the Press.
