Monday, November 30, 2020 the Chinese claim it was India that started this.

 First, of course, it was a "Wet Market" that served bats from a location 180+ MILES away from Wuhan that was the origin of the Sars-Covid-19 outbreak....Even though the epicenter of the first outbreak was mere tens of feet from the Wuhan center for weaponized diseases. 

THen, of course, they said it might have been Italy....

Now the Chinese are claiming that the outbreak was first found in India.....after the idea that it first originated in Italy failed to gain any traction....(because it was a lie). 

Despite the (multiple) claimed origins for the disease, it first surfaced in Wuhan,  likely not in the "Wet Market" (that didn't serve bat carcases from mearly 200 miles away).....but that is what they first came from a disease warfare lab that is located on the same block as the Wet Market they pointed to.....

I think that the Chinese are afraid of (and rightly so) repercussions from the rest of the they are pointing to anyone but the Chinese as the source....

But I doubt that (all of)  the rest of the world will buy their lies.....It seems to be a cultural issue with eastern asians (not just the Chinese) to lie to Westerners....and for some reason, many Westernaers keep buying the lies over and over and over....

A legal question:

 So the State governments have (mostly) mandated a mask in all enclosed public spaces. Essentially, one cannot legally do business without a mask in todays society. 

On the horizon: a (relatively) untried set of vaccines for Covid-19...

Now, one is required to possess a drivers license to drive a car on roads,  In many states, one needs a permit to carry a firearm on one's person (despite the protections of the Second Amendment of the Constitution). One cannot do banking nor other fiancial businesswithout proving ones identity with a Government issued Identification Card. Similarly, one must "identify" when asked by a policeman or other law enforcement official (The difinition of "Identify" might mean showing an Id or simply stating your name and varies).  There is precedent for the following:

Would it be legal for the States or the Federal Government to require that the citizens of this country be vaccinated for Covid-19 in order to do business or to leave one's home? To buy food or medicine or to mingle with others in public? 

It is, after all, a short step from mandated "Mask Up" in public to "Vaccinate".....

I fully expect someone to try this...

Black Friday

 I'm not a "Hide behind your Mask" sort of guy. 

I do think that the Covid is real, and serious. 

If you wear a mask,  except under protest, that is your choice. 

But if you go out today, and mingle with everyone else to do your Black Friday shopping, in large crowds, you are an idiot.

Thanksgiving 2020

 Well, this year, compared to most years, has Royally Sucked Ass. Financially, personally and for other reasons, it has been, shall we say, a less than stellar year ( I am sure that I am not alone in this sentiment).

Having said that, I am very thankful for my life. I live in a country where, despite recent developments, I still enjoy a relatively great deal of freedom. I have a country which is, mostly, still under the rule of law, with the protections that our Constitution provides, against both the Government and it's minions, and my fellow citizens. I am thankful for the security and safety that the Military and the Police provide.

I have my home, my possessions, all of which are mine (debt free), and relatively free of the threat of theft or confiscation. 

I am thankful for my friends and family, and their support. 

My life is, actually, pretty good. I'd bet that 75% or more of the people in the world would gladly trade their problems for mine. When one considers the Big Picture, my life is pretty good. 

All in all, while this has been, as I said, a less than stellar year, I am thankful for what I DO have, and that it hasn't been worse. While the next year will entail some changes and some learning in my life, I also have the belief that things will get better. 

I hope that everyone reading this has things for which they can be thankful. 

Wednesday, November 25, 2020

I still laugh:

The horror:

 I'm seeing lots of video of the surge of travelers at the airports....Those traveling for Thanksgiving. 

Yet, in all the videos, I am NOT seeing much "Social Distancing: in the lines leading up to the folks fondling those travelers screening those passengers. Odd, that. One might think that these lines would be a major place where "Social Distancing" would work best, as tens of thousands of people per hour funnel through this checkpoint, coming from a diverse range of places, interacting with the others, mingling in a line that can last for an hour or close proximity to those strangers....

Perhaps the masking, the Social Distancing is as much Theater as the TSA's "protection"?

I guess it is Covid

 But, at least in my area, you really have to work to get a speeding ticket right now. Unless your speed is egregiously over the limit (like 2X or more what the sign says) then the cops tend to not see you. 

How is it in your area? 

Monday, November 23, 2020

an observation and a question:

 So the Media is showing tens of thousands of people lining up in their cars to get prepackaged food handouts.  Idling in their cars for HOURS, waiting for the handouts. 

Each person appears to pull up to the staging line, where another person loads the prepackaged box of food into the trunk:

I have noticed that the boxes are pre-printed with slogans like "food Bank" or "Helping Hands" or other slogans. I find it interesting that these boxes are not just repurposed or off the shelf boxes, but are printed especially for this food handout....tens of thousands of boxes. One wonders what the lead time is for a purchase of tens of thousands of custom printed boxes?  

These folks are not sitting in junk cars...they are high end automobiles. One might think that if one has the ability to own such a car, that one might have the means to feed their families without handouts. I mean, these cars cost a lot not only to purchase, but for things like insurance and such...

But there they are, sitting in line, each burning gallons of gasoline, (Probably 5 or more while in line) just to get a $50 box of food.....

(Of course, the question comes up also.....Where is the food coming from? Who is paying, not only for the food, but for the labor to package it (in those custom boxes) and for the labor to set up the distribution point and for the labor to move it to the distribution point and put it into the waiting car?)


Sunday, November 22, 2020

Missing the point:

 Watching the weather and news this morning, (channel 2 Chicago/WBBM-TV) and listening to their advice on Covid....Stay home, don't travel unless necessary, don't do thanksgiving, etc.....followed by their human interest segment where they told the rest of us about the neat things these TV announcers (who are based in and work in Chicago) had seen and found in neighboring showed us the neat stuff she found in a market in Wisconsin, the other a neat decoration he and his wife had found in Michigan,,,

And, remember, for anyone else who travels across the state line, Illinois requires a 14 day quarantine period....I guess this doesn't apply to "journalists" Talking Heads. 

Yet the rest of us should stay home.

It's different

 And yet, at the same time, pretty much the same.

I'm taking Multi-Engine instruction now...

Flying a twin is like driving a Corvette...when I've been driving a station wagon. 

Make no mistake, I love my Cessna 182. But compared to the Baron that I am getting my multi engine instruction is, it is a dog. 

LOTS more power, which makes for MUCH greater performance. And all that power (and the fact that it is a twin) means that it can kill you in ways that a single engine plane won't.. (Which is what I am learning...not How to Fly ..I (supposedly) already know that...but how to fly a twin engine plane when one engine isn't working). 

It has been a challenge.  

Funny, that:

 So the Media and many Liberals are now deriding those who felt that there was fraud in the 2020 elections...laughing at the claims that the obvious irregularities and statistical anomalies are nothing...that they are simply wishful thinking. 

They claim that not only is there no "evidence" but that there is no way that there could be enough changes made, even if it were possible, to influence the outcome of the election.

Yet these are the same people that spent tens of millions of dollars looking into "Russian" interference in the 2016 election. 

So which is it? A foreign entity could have influenced our election enough to change the outcome, but a domestic entity (the DNC) could not have done the same 4 years later?  

When one turns blue, does any logical thought simply disappear? 

Wednesday, November 18, 2020

WHY Won't anyone listen to us?

 So driving today, I was listening to WBBM and they had Governor Pritzkers "Covid News Conference"...which is apparently some kind of weekly radio show where he lectures the rest of the citizens of Illinois about what they are doing wrong and how they should just listen to him and do as he says....(As opposed to what he and his family do).

But his main message today was that people Just Don't Believe the severity of this "Covid Crisis".

"The Projections show a massive increase in cases and out Hospitals COULD be overwhelmed"...Gee, where have we heard THAT mantra before? And oddly, it didn't happen 8 or 9 months ago, despite the "Projections" telling us that there were gonna be 7 Million 4 Mill,,,no, 2 wait, lessee here, 1.2, wait, 850 wait, half a Million, no like maybe something less than that...

And we trashed the economy and basically huddled in our homes for nearly 8 months....and yet we gained nothing. 

So WHY don't the citizens of Illinois believe the Great Governor Pritzker? Maybe because he hasn't been right at any point in this crisis? Maybe because the predictions he used as an excuse to destroy the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people in his state were off by several orders of magnitude? Or that the 2 weeks 8 months of "flattening the curve" didn't change anything? Or, it could be because he doesn't make his family follow the rules he thinks everyone else should follow? 

I dunno. 

Tuesday, November 17, 2020

A thought:

 So Menards (and Home Depot) both were early adopters of the "Mask Mandate" where I live in Indiana, months before the state-wide requirements for masks came into effect,,..

But they don't disinfect ANYTHING.

Not carts, not credit card machines, nothing.

The Virus is transmitted via touch and via airborne at a similar rate...

Yet  again, we have the requirement for masks, but nothing else. Much like in a restaurant, or a bar, where one is dangerous when walking to and from the table (or the bathroom) but not when eating or drinking.....

The local grocery stores, all of them, including Wal-Mart, DO at least make the attempt to sanitize the carts and other common touch surfaces. 

Much like the TSA, it is all Theater. 

I gotta say it

 While there is a great deal of evidence that there was voter fraud that took place in Pennsylvania, Michigan, possibly Wisconsin and Georgia, (lots of INDIRECT evidence)  I have not seen any DIRECT evidence. 

I have no doubt that the lots of "found" ballots ( those tranches of ballots that that came in well after the deadline and oddly, in strange ways) that were overwhelmingly for Biden (to the point of statistical impossibility) were manufactured and illegal votes. Similarly the "late" votes and the ones with illegible (or no) postmarks that were allowed contrary to election law that were also, oddly overwhelmingly statistically unlikely for Biden that should not have been counted...Not to mention the mail-in ballots that had either missing  or non matching signatures that also were allowed...and again, were overwhelmingly for Mr. Biden.  

Having said that, despite the words of Donald the Trump and his henchman Giuliani stating otherwise, I have not seen (at least so far) any court cases nor evidence that would force a recount. It is getting a bit late if they truly have the evidence they claim that they can take to the courts. If they got some, it is time to ante up. We have heard a lot of words, but seen no action. 

If they don't do so soon, then I feel that the election is lost. 

Sunday, November 15, 2020

So...a question:

 If (and it is an "IF") masks in public really work effectively to prevent the spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus...

And since in nearly every state, there has been rigorous enforcement of mask wearing inside buildings and such....even if that compliance is gained by FORCING the businesses to comply (Except, of course while eating or drinking...because for some reason breathing while eating in a restaurant doesn't spread Corona....nor does breathing while drinking at a bar...? But walking in and out or gto the restroom does.....?)

Then why do we have this sudden spike in cases (but, oddly, not an equivalent surge in hospitalizations nor deaths) if masks really are effective? 

I mean, really, does anyone believe ANYTHING the so-called "authorities" are telling us? 

I certainly don't. 

ETA: Have you been getting the stats on your local news? We get them here for three states (used to be only two until Wisconsin got high enough that they could use those numbers to gin-up fear) Anyway, if you look at the raw data that the TV folks present, it looks like a 0.03% death rate....pretty much what it has been since we started our "2 weeks to "flatten the curve"" ....8 months ago... And they give this data them tell us that they had a record number of tests performed...but then exclaim that the "Number of cases is rising!!!).  And apparently people buy it...

This tells much about the ability of our populace to either look at statistics and interpret the data and/or the state of our education system that supposedly taught them to count....much less critical thinking skills...

Is our health care system run by total idiots?

 Or is the Media hyping a line of bullshit?

I mean, first we had the incredible overreaction by the States healthcare system back in February, March and April....Things like the Javits Center in NY and McCormack place in Chicago...huge mobilizations that ended up caring for tens of patients. Tens.

We heard stories of health care workers being put in danger because there were incredible shortages of PPE and trained personnel (But, Heroes that they were, they soldiered on.....making Tik-Tok videos, of course)

Now, 7 months later, we are hearing the same stories...Hospitals are about to become overwhelmed, and there are, again, Dangerously low levels of PPE for those heroic health care workers....

Look: It isn't like this "surge" in cases is a surprise. At least not to anyone with more than 3 synapses that are firing. 

And the "shortage" of PPE? You'd think that these folks who run the hospitals could foresee and stock for a continued need for PPE...if nothing else they should have learned from the debacle 7 or 8 months earlier and planned ahead

Oddly, there has been no shortage of Hospital type masks available in the retail market...nor gloves. But the hospitals can't find enough to stock accordingly?

So, either someone is incompetent, at many levels, or the Media is lying. 

Sadly, either is possible.

Blogger help bleg

 For some reason, I cannot "save" additions to my bloglist......nor can I edit it to remove other blogs from the bloglist. 

Since Blogger has screwed up other things, I am not sure if I am doing something incorrectly or if it is just another thing that Blogger has FUBARRED.

Anyone else having issues editing bloglists? 

Oughta put the brakes on real quick-like:

 Seems that Florida Governor DeSantis has put forth a bill allowing people that own businesses and homes to shoot rioters and looters once they enter the property illegally. 

I figure that this would definitely out a dent into the amount of looting and burning the next time there is a "Mostly Peaceful" protest. 

My Grandfather used to say that if the rabbits or deer were ravaging the garden, if you shot one and left the carcass lay, the others would find another place to go for food. I'm not sure rabbits or deer are smart enough to recognize the danger, but human looters probably are. 


A thought:

 "When Injustice becomes Law

Resistance becomes Duty"

Thomas Jefferson

I gotta ask you all....We KNOW (despite denials from the Left Leaning folks, even those that are as intelligent as we are or anyone with two synapses to rub together, for that matter and know they are lying and that we know they are lying as well) that there was some level of left-leaning Anti Trump voter fraud. How much, I am not sure. Enough to throw the election? Maybe. Again, not knowing the levels of true fraud I simply cannot say. 

But here is the thing:

What are we gonna do about it? Are we gonna arm up and shoot someone? Who might that be? What is your target?  What are we gonna do? How are we gonna fix this? Is it worth a civil war? 

 I, personally, believe that anyone who commits (or allows to be committed) voter fraud should be treated as a traitor to the country, and should be tried in a fair trial and hung by the neck immediately after (assuming a guilty verdict) the trial. But how many people we gonna string up? How much do you have the stomach for? How much blood are YOU, personally, willing to spill to restore our Republic? 

Think about it. What, exactly, are you willing to countenance? 

How many people are you gonna jail, or hang? How much "Revolution" are you willing to do? How far are you willing to tear apart this country? 

How much "Resistance"?

Thank you Veterans

 Today is Veterans Day.

Say "Thank You" to all the vets you know.

I will.

Thanks to each and every one of you for your service, peace or war.

Tuesday, November 10, 2020

'Tis interesting:

 The "News" keeps using words like "Baseless" and "Unfounded" and "Incorrect" when discussing the issues Trump is claiming regarding the election.

This is as blatant as their claim that Biden is the "President-Elect".

They have no evidence one way or another as to whether the elections were fraudulent or not (although there are enough "irregularities" that if they were fair they'd be interested in an investigation) 

The veneer of impartiality is only molecules thick now. 

Odd timing

 I find it odd that Pfizer announce a vaccine ("90% Effective!" ) shortly AFTER the election. 

Interesting timing, that.

Draw your own conclusions. 

Not just a belt

 I have a feeling this is gonna get expensive...

So two weekends ago, my plane tossed it's alternator belt while I was flying...

Not a big deal, I shut off all but one radio, the transponder, and the beacon and, since I was already heading for home, it was a non-event. 

Of course, I didn't know why I had no alternator until I got on the ground, but investigation showed that the belt had left the pulleys.

While the belt wasn't worn, nor did it appear damaged, it was old, and since inspection of the drive pulley and the alternator showed no other issues (the alternator spins easily and the bracket appears to be fine) my mechanic wanted to replace the belt as a fix (I wasn't so sure...Belts don't just fall off the pulley for no reason), so we ordered one and when it came in, installed the new belt. I test flew it for an hour, and it seemed fine. 

Aaannd on Monday, I took the 182 out, fired it up, taxiied to the end of the active runway, (charging system working fine) did the runup....And when I came to the line on the checklist that says "Engine instruments and ammeter"...guess what? 

So back to the barn and upon inspection, sure enough, the belt was off the pulley and inside out. 

I got a feeling this is gonna get expensive.

Strange dichotomy:

 SO for the past 4 or so years, we have been told that there was "Russian" interference and tons of voter fraud in the 2016 election. 

Yet now we are told that there is no, absolutely zero, chance of any possibility that there was any fraud in the swing-state election process.

Odd, that. 

Of course, when the Media's entire mission is getting Joe Biden elected over Donald Trump, then the standards change. 

Funny strange, isn't it?

 SO all the Biden supporters are gathering in larger cities...parks and such, to celebrate the Biden "Win" (so far only the Media has called it, but hey, if you tell a lie often enough and loudly enough...).

And nearly NONE of those folks gathering in large crowds, much closer than 6 feet apart, holding hands and dancing and cheering and all of that sort of celebratory stuff...are wearing a mask. 

I don't hear the media chanting "SuperSpreader!!!"(eleventy!) or any of the other epithets they used for Trump rallies. (Much like they never said anything about the (Mostly Peaceful) BLM rallies either).

I guess now that Slow Joe (the Man with a Plan) is coming to power (at least the kids celebrating think so, and so does the Media...Me, I will wait and see) there is no reason to worry about catching the CoronaVirus....

Asking for a friend

 Does anyone know where I can find a black leather, IWB, right hand crossdraw holster for a full size 1911 with a thumb break designed for cocked and locked carry? 

I can't seem to find that combination. 

Or if you can recommend a holster maker that does good custom work without astronomical pricing? 

Isn't it interesting

 That no one..not the media, not the police departments, not anyone...expects riots (along with fires, shootings and looting) from the Republican folks now that the Media has called the election for Biden? 

IF it had gone the other way, then all those boarded up windows and doors on the ground floor of most cities would have been a great idea. As it is, it has been unneeded as those of us that are Deplorable, Bitter Clingers are law abiding....

Out of Jeopardy

 Seems that Alex Trebek of Jeopardy! fame has passed after a long battle with pancreatic cancer

A broken stool

 Look: If Joe Biden had won, even narrowly, with no issues...I'd be disappointed, but would have dealt with it.

Our country survived EIGHT years of Barry Obama, and we will survive 4 years of Slow Joe....Or 3.75 years of Kamala Harris when Slow Joe is declared incompetent and she takes over in early 2021....).

But here is the thing:

Our country was different than other countries...we had three things going for us that made the USA different...better...than other countries.

1. We had a Constitution that protected us from our government, and enumerated rights that we have....inalienable rights that were sacrosanct. (So far, we still have those)

2. We had a Democratic Republic, with freely (and honestly) elected representatives. We no longer have that.

3. We had a peaceful transition of power from one president and one congress to another.(I'm not sure we will have that for reasons I will explain in a moment).

Our Constitution is still there...mostly

Our votes, our election, however, are no longer believably honest, nor is our election free from fraud. 

We may not have a peaceful transition of power, as the incoming President-elect is, for all purposes, illegitimate, not truthfully legally elected. 

A stool or a chair with one leg missing is useless. We no longer can trust the legitimacy of our elections. Our votes count for less today. Our rights as citizens to elect our leaders have been trashed...negated....thrown away in the quest for power.  

Those who facilitated this fraud are enemies of the State...traitors to the Republic. 

It matters not whether the result of the ballot counts is overturned by the courts at this point...the damage to our nation's election integrity is done. 

This is more than just a Presidential election. This is the destruction of the integrity of our country...and the promise to it's citizens. 

I don't know if Joe Biden would have won without the fraud...and we will never know. Had the Fraud not manifested, I would have been able to support him as President. Now, however, his Presidency will be forever tainted. The American People, and Mr. Biden himself, will always wonder, always remember him as the illegitimate President.

If I were Donald J. Trump, I think I would fight this to the end. In the courts, and possibly elsewhere. He knows, as do you and I, that this election debacle is cheating...Fraud on an industrial scale. 

In the end, those with a lust for power, those who fraudulently "Found" votes, who allowed votes, hundreds of thousands of votes... to be counted when they were so obviously fraudulent, will have done more than just engineered a coup....they (along with a willing Press) will have damaged our country permanently....Because they will have undermined the sanctity of our elections, and destroyed one of the three pillars that made the USA different....and better....than any country elsewhere in the world. 

That stool is useless is missing one of it's legs. Fit only for firewood. It matters not how this turns out...our country is broken.

And we, as a people, stood by and let then get away with doing that. 

Saturday, November 7, 2020


 It was true in 2000

And it is true today:

As it is, they'll just keep "Finding" votes until they steal the election.

Look: If Biden won fair and square, I'd be disappointed...but I'd deal with it. But "Finding" votes this late is bullshit. 

How many more will they "Find"? 

Friday, November 6, 2020

Jesus...they've tossed all appearances of credibility and impartiality aside

 The Media (NBC, ABC, and CBS) have spent the last 15 minutes telling me that Trump is wrong about all of his claims, that the ballots take time to count, that the "Found" ballots in PA and AZ and NC are all valid (Because REASONS) and that the fact that some were delivered without postmarks was just a mistake on the part of the USPS but they still need to be counted....Plus the unverified "Provisional" ballots that are counting an improbably high percentage for Slow Joe...And it is taking so long because there are lots of votes......Despite the fact that in Red areas, ALL the votes have been counted long ago. 

And the message that "We need to all just accept the results without issues"....and that the President has "Falsely Claimed" that he won...and "Incorrectly" claimed FRAUD. 

They are blatantly in the Tank for Biden, and are trying to convince the rest of us...and their delivery shows that even they don't believe it.

It's like watching "Bagdad Bob" tell us how the "Shock and Awe" and the invasion was going badly for the US and allies even as American tanks appeared behind him in his broadcasts. 

I think they are preparing the battlefield so there will be doubt when they announce that Biden has won.....hook or crook. I would expect that they will make their announcements on a Sunday afternoon....

I think they are counting on election news exhaustion to keep people's reaction down. 

I know there has been no malfeasance because the Media has told me so. 

Democracy will die this week because we allow it. 

We are out of Boxes (I can't agree with his verbage, but I can agree with his conclusion)

I'm hating the thought that the above article brings....but I don't see what else we have. 

I gotta say I am unsure what to think or do here. If we do nothing, we fail not only our fellow citizens, but the folks who created this country and gave us what we have (or had until last Tuesday). If we do Do Something, then we destroy our country. I never thought I would even have to consider what I am now thinking. I always thought the enemies would be "foreign", not domestic. 

No good options here. 

I thought he was joking

 But he wasn't.

So there I am at the hotel where I was staying, having gotten dressed and imbibing a cup of generic hotel coffee and standing outside having the first smoke of the day.

(I was in because I had to advise an attorney on a deposition in a lawsuit, and the deposition was like 2.5 hours from home, and I didn't wanna leave home at 5 AM... to be ready at 8 AM)

Anyway, some other dude wanders up and I say "Good morning"

He looks me straight in the eye and says "you need to calm the fuck down there, partner". He was serious, I think. 

I just shut up. Didn't wanna start the day with an issue. I had too much on my plate. 

I mean, I'm not generally a morning person, but damn. 


 One could not find a novel or other fictional story wherein the author could sell the idea that the populace (or half of it, anyway) would accept an election such as we have seen in the last few days.

Not in the United States, anyway.

This is something one would expect of a Banana Republic, where General Odious gets 99.47% of the vote to be reelected as Premier...and the population has no choice to accept it. 

Thursday, November 5, 2020

One wonders

 If the delay in counting votes (and the subsequent delay in calling a state (or the election) for Biden) is just to give folks like me time to cool off and relax enough that we won't revolt when the election is called. 

Wednesday, November 4, 2020

Isn't it ODD?

 The only states where (significant numbers of) Absentee/Early votes are being "found" are those where the race hangs in the balance




and AZ.

(There are rumors of GA, but nothing substantiated...yet)

Funny how that works, innit?

I am not wanting a revolution-like war....people DIE in a war....but this is looking more and more like a reason to have one. 

I'm not so sure I can stand by this time.


"The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything"

Joseph Stalin

Watch the Stock Markets

 If they go up then they expect the Presidential race to go to Trump.

If they go DOWN, then they expect the race to go to Biden.

And there is a LOT of money being spent to predict this outcome, as there is a LOT of wampum to be found in profit or losses. 

"The Counts Continue to Change

 As Absentee ballots and late arriving Mail In Ballots are counted".

I wonder how many additional votes will be "found" or "Arrive Late" as the counts show one side or the other is winning? 

Tuesday, November 3, 2020

Not even pretending

 To be unbiased nor impartial.

I'm watching CBS for election coverage (Not that there is much else on anyway).

Norah Odonnel and Gail King are the anchors...and they and their other commentators are unabashedly Pro-Biden....It's almost like they are electioneering  for the DNC types...

ETA: They keep bringing up the "Power of Women" and especially "College educated Women" and "White Women" and how they influence the vote....(and they claim that these women even influence the  vote of their men) and how they have changed the election....I dunno.

ETA II: Jesus Christ...Valerie Jarett is a hag. One might think that she would have tried to look better. She looks like a SNL caricature.

Seen on a car bumper in the Precinct parking lot:

 "Vote Blue/No matter who".

(She drove out before I could get a photo with my phone)

And that, folks, is why we have people vote for folks like Biden.

I remember a woman who worked for me, may years ago. A lady who had lived and grown up in the South Side of Chicago...where nearly everyone votes Democrat.

She was a product of her generation.....and when the DNC pushed this young black man as their candidate, she hesitated....and her upbringing and life experiences had made her ....untrustful...of black people.

Yet her she was, presented with a BLUE candidate....for President.....who was black....but he had a "D" after his name....She was conflicted. 

I explained to her that I felt that there were many reasons not to vote for Barry Obama.....but the color of his skin didn't even enter the equations....and it shouldn't be a part of her decisionmaking process. 

I think she ended up voting for him, not because she believed in his message, but because he was a "Blue" candidate. 

Likewise if you voted for Donald Trump just because he had an R after his name...

A large turnout so far:

 So I can see the entrance to the polling place from my home, if I use a decent telescope.

There was a line out the door at 6 AM when the polls opened.

There was still a line at 7 AM.

The line wasn't out the door at 8 AM, so I went down to do my Civic Duty and exercise my Right to Vote.

The line to vote INSIDE the building was over 75 people. The line did move fairly quickly, and there were adequate voting stations set up....the system was well organized and the flow was steady.

I entered the door at 8:12 and exited, having voted, at 8:31. 

The election workers said that this was the busiest that they had seen, surpassing the turnout 4 years ago. It remains to be seen as to whether the rest of the day looks the same.

(I may have been wrong about the turnout for early voting)

If you haven't voted, PLEASE, go vote. (even if you vote for the "wrong" folks. Just vote. Help decide the fate of, and the direction of, our country for the next 4 years. I would ask that you choose wisely, and with forethought....But vote. It does make a difference. 

"Record Early Voting"

 So some statistics quoted by the News Media say that nearly 45% of the registered voters have voted early, either in-person or by mail.

I find this to be somewhat suspect, since even last election which had "record voting" did not exceed 80% of registered voters. (Except in some Blue precincts where the number of voters exceeded the number of registered voters by as much as 40%).

IF the stories are true, then this will either be another record, or there has been a great deal of fraud.

Sadly, I'm not sure which to expect. 

It is said that a million votes, in the right places, can swing this election. How many "late" mail-in votes will arrive post election day? In some places being 10 or more days late or not being signed (or having a matching signature) is not a disqualification.... 

It was the Blue (Democrat) politicians that pushed for extremely early votes and for increased Vote-By-Mail. 

Draw your own conclusions.

Me, I am afraid that Trump will not be able to win over the Margin of Fraud. 



Seen nestled on the roadside amongst a whole shitload of other election signs:

I guess that someone has plans for the future.
Sadly, If "Biden/Harris" wins, this might come true.

"Health Care is a RIGHT, not a privilege"

 Have you ever noticed that people who say that are good with the idea as long as someone else pays the bill?

It is, of course, a cornerstone of Socialist thinking, but I just thought I'd point that out. 

Late breaking voting rule changes:

 Voting day is Tuesday, the 3rd. 

I have, however, been given some special, late breaking, news:

However, the National Voting Board has made a special dispensation for Democrat and Liberal voters.

If you hold your in-person vote until Wed, the 4th, it counts double for the Presidential ballot. 

While this has not yet been verified, I am reporting it so DNC types can use it for their advantage. 

Please, pass this exciting news to all your Liberal and Democrat friends.

The Leftists are expecting riots

 So if the Leftist Mayor of Chicago is expecting riots, then one might think that the rest of us should be expecting them as well, wouldn't you think?

I mean, at the end of it all, It is possible that they are overly afraid that there will be riots like has happened TWICE already this year, and are just (for once) preparing for the worst (The city's businesspeople are NOT gonna let her get away with failing to protect the downtown area again, you can bet on that...) But since the Coty is planning on riots, I am gonna plan for Riots to happen as well. And if it is gonna happen in Chicago, a pretty Leftist areas, then I expect it to happen in most other Blue cities as well. 

Seems that a LOT of Chicago businesses (at least the downtown ones, anyway) are planning on riots...boarding up and hiring security. I do know a small jewelry store near downtown is planning on closing early Monday and has made plans for the entire inventory to be elsewhere for a few days to a week. They can't afford to be looted a third time. 

One way to look at things is that if the Leftist leaders are planning on Riots, then one might think that they expect Trump to win, and are planning for the Chaos that that will engender from the more radical of their members...
