Back from my trip

I come back to this: Governor Abbott Orders Bars to Close.

I will actively campaign for Abbott’s next opponent. This is ridiculous.

We have the worst political class ever. I know that the way the media report the news is in order to drive fear and hysteria, but the governor should be above this. It’s a virus. Some people get sick. Don’t shift the liability! Let the virus spread. Let herd immunity happen. Protect the vulnerable. Shutting down commerce is no way to control a public health problem. The wealth created by economic activity is what will allow all of us to deal with the Wuhan Virus.

Oh My…

Starting the trip later this morning.

Take a look here: California may allow businesses to abandon commercial leases.

It looks like June 18th will be an important day in the life or death of that bill.

I will try to keep track of this.

This will be devastating to the California economy. Which will suck because most of the Californians will move to Texas. We already have enough of them here.

My brother-in-law will be thrilled with this news.

 

The Next Couple of Weeks

Posting will be light. I’m going out on the road and will have limited access to the internet.

So… maybe I should start a new count?

Day 93 of the Kung Flu Lockdown

I didn’t number yesterday’s post about the chink flu pandemic. My apologies.

Today’s post is about the religion of social justice.

Please read this post.

There is a video too.

Watch This

There’s a whole series of them.

You can hopefully see why I don’t trust anything we are told.

Day 91 of The Great Pandemic of 2020

This post is late. This happens when you work around the house all day and then have a couple of drinks with a lateish dinner.

The election season is going to be interesting.

I think it will be Trump by a wide margin. Unless the Dems find a replacement for Biden. I would like to point you to this previous post of mine: Biden on His Aneurysm. If that Joe Biden were in the race, Trump might be in trouble. But that video is 7 years old and that Biden doesn’t exist anymore. I think it is horrible that the Dems are running Bernie (and no… not Bernie Sanders) for President.

Also was pointed at this article about nursing home death data by the No Agenda Podcast. Another point in the series of points we have all come across where the data is wrong. Nobody knows anything.

Had my drinks at Milo’s. No body there seems very concerned about the virus. Where we had dinner Thursday night there were way too many people that were overly concerned about the virus. The difference in atmosphere between the two places is stark.

Day 90 of the Wu Flu Hysteria

We went out for dinner. While the food was good, the place wasn’t even pretending that they want to be open beyond their obligation for not paying back their PPP loan.

Things are going to be effed up for a while.

Day 87 of Fu Man Flu House Arrest

Things are loosening up, but still weird. Restaurant workers are wearing masks. It is obvious that masks make things worse in restaurants and other customer service positions.

Some stuff about politics:

Here’s the lie in the media’s defense of their protest two-step

Experts Wrong

Politics and Modeling

We are living under the tyranny of experts that never ever suffer consequences for being wrong.

Second Post for Day 86 of Kung Flu House Arrest

New readers (One? Two?) of this blog might like to know where my antipathy toward government comes from. Mostly I recognize government as nothing more than Stationary Bandits. Once you get past National Defense and, say here in the U.S., broad civil rights protection what other really legitimate purpose does the national government have? I can’t think of much. Many people will talk about the money supply. They’ll mention Social Security, etc. They will name their favorite programs. None of them are really necessary. If they didn’t exist life would be different. I’m not saying better, just different.

The way our Constitution contemplated government it would be a group of 50 states doing what they wanted to do only limited by the Constitution. Each state could design a different set of policies. Policies that met the demands and desires of their respective citizens.

I am also, given current events, befuddled by those that think we need more government.

Here is my thought on more government:

We have given our government a supposed monopoly on violence. Government is violence. If you do not obey the government (In most cases… current looting is apparently excepted) eventually violence will befall you. This is what happened to the current Martyr of our government led racial unrest. Don’t expect government to fix what government uses to its advantage.

By the way, the Minneapolis Police policy manual on the use of force specifically allows for the knee on the neck we all have seen (look for paragraph 5-311). I’m fairly confident that cop will get convicted, but I don’t think he would with a fair trial. He’s not going to get a fair trail.

 

Day 82 of the Winnie the Flu House Arrest

The Deuce and I did more work on the deck.

It is going to look nice.

Pictures soon.

Oh… I went to a bar again this afternoon. Things are starting to feel somewhat normal.
