In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

That's a Lot of Days

According to news reports, the rioting has been going on for over 60 days in some cities. That's a lot of days for people to find something to eat, shelter, and a source of income. More than anything else, that's a sign of people that don't work, or are receiving money from nefarious source.

There is a solution, but I don't think the cities would like my solution, since the mayor would have to be tarred and feathered in the process. That, and a whole bunch of people would find hand grenades aren't your friends.

The Games

I wonder about the citizens in the cities with the protesters. Since the police are standing down, and the protesters are not local, why don't they just sit on their front porches and take out a few? It would be easy, and they could have a contest to see who has the most hits. After that, they could place a bounty on them,  and make sure the posters say "Dead, or Alive".

Repeating the Past

This Marxist offensive in the U.S. isn't new. It's a repeat of incidents in the past. The same happened in Russia, China, Vietnam, Cuba, and various other countries. The supposed demand to help the working folks, redistribution of wealth, destruction of historical places, subversion of history, turning citizens against each other, and removal of the ability of self-defense were successful. The result was the murder of millions, a ruling class hiding behind supposed elections, and tyranny. Liberty is removed, and the only way to stop the changes is thwarted with not allowing citizens to have firearms.

It's easy to see why this is happening. Public schools have been indoctrinating students for decades. The same can be said of Universities, which are bastions of Marxists. They were successful, but there efforts are exposed. There are too many people unwilling to bow to the demands, refuse to give up their firearms, and are well educated on the corruption of the media. While reports say there is pandemonium, the majority of people are only waiting for the next election. How they react is to be seen, but they are determined to not allow the United States to turn into another Communist hell hole.

Panic of the Imbeciles

There's little known about Covid 19, but politicians, bureaucrats, Karens, and other imbeciles are bound to demand we quarantine and wear a mask. It's all panic, and it's all politics. It's time most people ignored these demands, embarrass the dumbasses, and refuse to do business with dumbasses demanding the same. It will help them deal with their stupidity.

Observing Some Younger Folks

I can't call all younger folks wusses, but there's enough to establish too many are used to mom wiping their tears, when they don't pass level 8 in their video game. The pattern is set, reality is hidden again, and they are woefully unprepared for the harsh moments of life.

Regardless of what is taught by recruiters, teachers, parents and doting grandparents, life is filled with moments of toil, mindless tasks, and long hours of work. It's how our ancestors survived. Survival came with young deaths, and miserable lives in the later years. You produced, or starved.

Today, there is the lure of free money, easy days, and no responsibility. However, it comes with a price. The price? Liberty. If you are basically a ward of the state, you are only as important as the state decides. At this point, the result is an easy life with little possession, the willingness to lie for more of the free stuff, and ignoring the fact the importance of existence hinges on resources. Resources are plenty, but not forever. When they run out, the older folks are first, and then those younger find they are forced to work meaningless lives to slow the final decline of the collective.

I don't think there's anything that will change the decline in the United States except harsh times. They're coming, and those unwilling to demand their liberty will become slaves to the bureaucrat elite. For many, they will deserve it. Nothing is free in life, and expecting so has penalties.

Blue Blazes

Early last week, we had about an inch of rain from a stationary front to the north. Near the front, there was more rain for long periods, but we only received little from the outflow boundary. It was good, but the rest of the week allowed the temperature to rise. This higher temperature, with the rich humidity is now at the dangerous level.

Yesterday, the heat index was around 110. Today, it's forecast to be higher, which to someone unfamiliar with this environment, is hard to comprehend. Sweat doesn't evaporate, a few minutes outdoors leaves you drenched with sweat, and the lack of a breeze allows no relief. Without resting, seeking shade, and drinking plenty of liquids can lead to death kill. Even with water, the loss of electrolytes leads to severe heat cramps in the evening. I take supplements, and drink pickle juice to ward off the agonizing cramps that can double me over.

Unless things change, I see the possibility of a brutal summer like we had in the nineties. Temperatures were in the triple digits for weeks, and we shut down projects at two in the afternoon. Trying to work beyond that point led to heat exhaustion, and the possibility of a heat stroke.

Dancing Around the Obvious

The governor of Texas is demanding masks in counties with a certain number of covid cases. People are following this order. They wear masks made out of bandannas, or knitted, place them below their noses, wear them for days, and the gaps around the nose would allow a small bird to fly up their nostrils. Otherwise, it's a foolish effort by foolish people to entice fools to believe the mask order is something more than a political fart in a political outhouse.

Dumbasses. We're surrounded by them, and they breed.

Still Around

We had two emergency bridge repair projects pop up in the last two months. One is finished, but the other is still in progress. Between long days, and six day weeks, I have little time but to cuss, bitch, and try to finish in the time allotted.
