    There a new party in town

    The Forward Party. The way that the media is talking it up as a centralists party, between the democrats and the republicans. But of course the media lied about it. So far, it looks like the democrat party is in the middle of a split with all of the people supporting it are on the democratic...

    Remember Biden's history with Ukraine?

    Abrupt end to mask mandates reflects a shifting political landscape

    What a surprise.

    In retrospect, unusual activities started around lunch time when I found my wife outside shoveling the driveway. I picked up a shovel and started to help her. We got 9 inches of slow and pretty much everyone was either working from home or just staying at home. Still, I can't remember her ever...

    Dear Mr. President Biden

    Let me explain this to you. If you get us in a war for Ukraine vs Russia, China will join sides with Russia via Warsaw Pact. On our side, we will have the the most common EU joining sides with the new Allied group. England, German, France,... Welcome to WWIII I miss the days when everyone made...

    My daughter works in the heart of the wacky left [WA] but in a fairly conservative location [Spokane] and works in the social workers world where she manages a foster home for disabled kids.

    A vaccine mandate horror story

    My daughter works as a social worker for a foster home for disabled kids in Washington State. They had to fire 1/3 of the staff today because they didn't have their vaccine.

    Government Overreach

    All in the name of Darwin's Cold Even my somewhat liberal adult daughter was shocked about the eviction moratorium. The CDC used a small ruling that was intended to fumigate small areas like an apartment building but kicked it into over drive across the country and the result are higher rent...

    Unfilled jobs combined with high unemployment

    It has all been kind of weird. Usually when there is high unemployment combined with plenty of jobs, the problem usually solves itself. The unemployed people get the jobs. Until this year.

Heck, I will even pay for monthly ZIP code data with a breakout of racial...

    Oh, this can be fun

    Ever have something happen that is so weird that you have to question if it is real or not? Well, that just happened. Ok, about me.
