Old Lurker you sure have that right. We turned the moron governors in the USA loose--and some of them jumped at their chance to emulate Benito Mussolini. And now here we are---with an economic and social hangover from letting those clowns loose with their lockdown---or in Andrew Cuomo's case, shoving infected people into nursing homes.

Da Nang Dick Blumenthal knows about shams. He's also as credible as the Sham Wow sales guy who wows the rubes at state fairs in the Midest. They may be eating a corn dog and a fried Twinkie, but he can't bamboozle them. Why is it that those two little states below Massachusetts haven't sent a decent senator to Washington since Joe Lieberman?

No reason to visit Portland again---ever. It was always a dull town (although it had a good bookstore, Powells, and a few good restaurants). This sleepy little burg is now disaster central. It was maybe a bit livelier when Mayor Neil Goldschmidt (sp ?) was shtupping his 14 year old babysitter. But that was then and this is now with reality denying Ted Wheeler as mayor.

I'm feeling cranky this morning, so I'll come right out and say it. Oh grow up Tom! Trump could have zipped his lip (and from time to time I wish he would) and stood mute from the day he was elected. Our faithful running dogs of the left with bylines and barrels of ink (or gazilllions of electrons) would have campaigned against him and declared him divisive. In fact that's what they did. And that's what they will continue to do. If Trump wins in November (which is possible, and perhaps even likely) the press and the pundits at MSNBC and CNN will go to Defcon 12 levels of shrieking. If he loses, the press and the pundits will tell us, "all is forgiven and now we will report nothing but the happy peasants are eating rainbow stew and drinking free Bubble Up on Big Rock Candy Mountain." Finding an honest press person is like finding a single grain of black rice in a ton of coal dust.

Pelosi says no debates. Her ground is that Trump doesn't talk that good old time religion of the Uniparty. Well okay-that's true, but he is not offering "misinformation"---only heresy. And the dear old Abbess of the Abbey of the Little Sisters of the Uniparty is upset. The Wall Street Journal's lead article today is that the GOP is now Trump's Party. And all of the Bush, McCain, and Romney officals--formerly Poobahs of the GOP wing of the Uniparty are standing in sackcloth and ashes. And they are supporting Biden. Big surprise! Worse yet--the defecting Dems who are supporting Trump are mostly black. The defecting Republicans supporting Biden are entirely people of pallor.

The fact that the poobahs who ran the Democrat KlanKlave in Milwaukee last night chose to sign off with Steven Stills 1966 "For What It's Worth" signals just one thing. The Democrats are fully on board with the rioting, looting and destruction in our cities. Stills wrote that song as an anthem to the 1966 counterculture protests on Sunset Strip. Are these clowns aware of that? They might as well have signed off with the Internationale.

Forget the NYT and their bushwah as to however they want to spin this to fit their narrative. The only thing that's beyond dispute here is that a white cop stopped a white woman around midnight in a rural county. There's no dash cam, no body cam, no nearby security camera. She wound up dead; there were five bullet casings by the car. That we know. There are two individuals who know the truth of what happened here and one of them isn't talking anymore. He said she threatened him. His story was apparently accepted by the local authorities. Beyond that we know zip all.
Flip Flopin' Fauci. He threw out the first pitch at the start of MLB's new season. Not surprisingly it went far left of the plate--almost into the dugout along the first base line. Then he sat is the stands between two other people--his mask was off--and they sure weren't six feet apart. Since there were no other fans in the stands, they didn't need to sit side by side. Rules are for the little people, not for Flip Floppin' Fauci.

Well Fauci is well past his sell by date. Can't keep his stories straight. And as for the governors--Cuomo, Newsom, Whitmer et al, there's not a nickel's worth of value in any of them. That said--my wife and I both turn 77 this year--and we look at the modal distribution of deaths from the "KungFlu" in our community--so we stay cautious and mostly isolated. But it's an interesting virus-and since it's seemingly only been around since late last year (in humans at least) there's a lot left to learn about it. It's hard to tell how lethal it's been in the USA since so many cases are asympomatic. But I've seen figures that lethality is as low as 0.5% which would make it just a bit more lethal than "regular" flu that shows up each year. But it's apparently also very very contagious. I'm not certain that people know just how it spreads--face masks of course are one thing---but do we need to be disinfecting every surface that anybody touched? And we haven't had the time to learn what happens down the road (sequelae) to a Wuhan Virus infection where the patient recovers. As Donald Rumsfeld---and Dick Cheney, both voted in as Darth Vader or the Devil by progressives said, it's the unknown unknowns that will get you. And right now there are plenty of unknown unknowns where the Wuhan Virus is concerned.

Pinandpuller, Santa Maria is 65 miles up Highway 101 from Santa Barbara. And boy is it a world apart from Santa Barbara and Montecito (rich folks who like to live by the ocean). Santa Maris is the administrative center for northern Santa Barbara County. Aside from county offices, it's the business trading center for an agricultural area that's now getting into wine grapes and such It also has a substantial number of engineers and technicians who work at the nearby Vandenburg Pacific Missile center, The politics in Santa Maria are not as coastal crazy as much of Southern California. Since there were and are a lot of cattle ranches around one big thing in Santa Maria is the big public Thursday night street barbecue. Santa Maria style tri tip roast is justly famous.

Well I'm still wasting money on the Los Angeles Times. Most mornings I can read it in three minutes or less--all I have to do is filter out the anti Trump and pro BLM codswallop, and there's not much left. I've been taking the dead tree edition of the WSJ for 50 years or so. It's worth a read. And Captain Hate, I just can't understand why you don't come right out and say what you think of that red nosed pervert William Jefferson Clinton. My wife and I were on vacation in England at the time of Lewinsky. I was sitting peacefully reading one of the London papers at breakfast when I learned that there was "a wanker in the Oval Office". Or so the London reporter wrote.
Governor Gavin Gruesome Newman's perfectly coiffed hair is on fire again, and he's shut down barbershops in some 29 counties in California (among other things). If you test for Covid-19 (I prefer to call it the Wuhan Virus) you are going to find it; and if you dramatically increase the number of tests for Covid-19 you are naturally going to find more of it. Well duh--seek, and ye shall find. But a lot of those positives are either recovered from or asynptomatic. What's important--and which these nattering nincompoops of negativity in governor's offices can't seem to focus on, is the number of people admitted to hospitals either because of or "with" Covid-19 and the number of fatalities. If fatalities spike up then perhaps lockdowns are justified. Otherwise it's mere persiflage from the puerile political pigmies that infest our lives.

And to think that I once read Peggy Noonan back in the day when she knew her backside from a hole in the ground! She's been smoking some righteous ganja when she thinks that Joe Biden might emerge from his basement and become a leader. Al Campanis got fired from his job with the Los Angeles Dodger organization when he said that blacks "might not have the essentials" to become baseball managers. I have news for Peggy---Joe Biden never had the essentials to become a leader--handsy, hair sniffer yes---but leader never. And now he's suffering from early dementia.

Extraneous at 7:04. I don't know that a fox can kill a ground squirrel California ground squirrel did burrows and rarely go more than 40 meters from their burrow. I've seen them climb a wall, but I haven't seen them go up a tree. However we also have bobcats on our hill. A month or so ago I was looking out the back window (not much else to do other than read a book in lockdown) and saw a bobcat frantically digging in the ground. I think he was trying to nail a ground squirrel. The bobcat ultimately walked off--frustrated and hungry.

My house is in the brushline of the Verdugo Hills--part of the LA metroplex and just eight miles from Los Angeles City Hall. I've got a concrete block wall back fence which keeps rattlesnakes out. The hillside above the fence is cleared for a firebreak. Lots of deer and coyotes cross the hillside--along with the occasional bobcat. There are squirrels in the rosemary groundcover on the hill. They drive my 30 pound mutt mad. To keep peace in the house I do trap the squirrels from time to time in a Havaheart live trap. I relocate them a couple of miles away. That's probably illegal, but I release them in terrain and brush similar to where I trapped them. Occasionally a squirrel will come over the wall into the yard, and the mutt--who thinks she's part terrier will give chase. A couple of days ago she knocked one into pool. The squirrel was a pretty good swimmer and managed to get to the edge of the pool and pull itself out--to be met by the dog. End of squirrel whose carcass is now over the wall for the scavengers. A few years back we had an infestation of Merriam Chipmunks. They stayed in the sideyard at night, but in the morning they'd run across the deck to get in the bushes along the back wall. They were cute little fellows--didn't stay out on the deck for more than few seconds since red tail hawks patrol overhead. That lasted for a couple of years. Then one day I saw two foxes in the backyard. Within a week no more chipmunks--the foxes cleaned the colony out. If you're going to trap them and kill them, it's smart to use gloves. Chipmunks are cute, but they carry the hanta virus which is an issue here in the Southwest.

Looking at that list of Black Medal of Honor winners Calvin Rogers as a light colonel when he won the MOH---but he retired as a Major General. Of course he won the MOH while commanding an artillery unit in the invasion of Cambodia--so maybe the woke will say he doesn't qualify.

Dang Bobby! The Chicago cops popped your popcorn in your microwave while they were sitting out the riots in Chicago? Didn't you let them know who you are?

As is well known at the race track, Money Talks, Bull Dust Walks. And defunding the police might mean simply smaller police forces--or it may mean citizen funded security patrols since the cops aren't there any more. Or it may mean that henceforth suburban homes will be insured by Messrs. Smith & Wesson, Ruger or Colt. Maybe get a little European Help from Signor Beretta.

So no Kung Flu release from prison for Michael Cohen--but Michael Avenatti gets out? It helps to have a Democrat judge for a friend.
Discard the nutter theory that some evil Chinese genius created a new virus for use as a bioweapon! Okay this is not a man made virus. But some Chinese researcher climbed in a bat cave in a remote part of China and waded though bat feces, bat urine and bat blood to get this sample virus---and bring it back to Wuhan. That was a deliberate and intentional act---bringing something out of the bat cave as it were. Once in the Wuhan laboratory either through negligence, cupidity,or through intentional release it got out. You go to Skull Island, you capture King Kong Virus and bring him or it into civilization, it's on you to keep King Kong in his cage. And China didn't. And it started with an intentional act on their part.
