The most amazing campaign statement I have ever read

I mean, I guess I should not be surprised that the self-described socialists in our ever more batshit political landscape are violent people, many of whom have well-established criminal records. Socialism hasn't exactly been associated with pacifism for, well, literally all of human history. We are talking about a political persuasion that produced Stalin, Hitler, … Continue reading The most amazing campaign statement I have ever read

https://www.youtube.com/embed/l1IoqsFuNec?version=3&rel=1&fs=1&autohide=2&showsearch=0&showinfo=1&iv_load_policy=1&wmode=transparent Yes, I think we all have a list of reasons to hate this year, but I’m trying to be positive, look for the rainbow and the silver lining and count my blessings. Lots of time at home. For some that is not a good thing, but for others, it was a nice change from … Continue reading Good Things about 2020 ? — Blue Skies and Green Pastures

The scamdemic’s impact on childhood has not been all bad

So I find it endlessly fascinating how the coronavirus scamdemic has stratified our country across generations, as much as any other distinguishing trait. Most people are inclined to split the "experience" of the past several months between blue states (forever shutdown hysteria and nightly riots) and red states (quick reopening and a dismissive shrug). And … Continue reading The scamdemic’s impact on childhood has not been all bad

The New York Times portrays a cold-blooded murderer as an expert in de-escalation

Americans woke up this morning to the news that Michael Forest Reinoehl was shot and killed during a police raid. For anyone who has been (understandably) living in a cave lately, Reinoehl was captured on video executing a random Trump supporter on the streets in Portland days ago. Here is the video, which has been … Continue reading The New York Times portrays a cold-blooded murderer as an expert in de-escalation

Is South Florida a real estate bubble? Depends on whom you ask.

I just watched a news report where they were interviewing people from New York who were packing up and moving to Florida. I would agree that the scamdemic was probably the last straw for people up north who were considering moving to Florida, but I think it is important to note they were already on … Continue reading Is South Florida a real estate bubble? Depends on whom you ask.

Chicago is short over a billion dollars thanks to coronavirus fear-mongering; school system also has massive budget gap

Back in May, I published A theory about state and local government finances. Having worked on many budget bills at the state level in the past, I could not understand how there had not already been major downsizing in spending as revenues disappointed at horrific levels thanks to the coronavirus shutdown bullshit. My guess was … Continue reading Chicago is short over a billion dollars thanks to coronavirus fear-mongering; school system also has massive budget gap

Our local Publix decides social distancing is not worth it

I used to go to the grocery store literally every single day. Sometimes, more than once a day. It's right around the corner, and we love to cook with super fresh ingredients. Now, they are lucky if they get our business once a week. We have plenty of alternative places to get food, like fishmongers … Continue reading Our local Publix decides social distancing is not worth it

Never forget: As cities burned, Biden/Harris shilled for bail funds

Those internal polling numbers must be brutal, because the Biden campaign is whipping the old nutter out of the basement finally to condemn violence and rioting. (And he's humorously "challenging Trump to do the same," even though anyone who has not been on Mars knows this has been one of the top issues for the … Continue reading Never forget: As cities burned, Biden/Harris shilled for bail funds
