Windmills, Solar Cells and Drive Through Restaurants Forever

It would seem the two have no relation with the third but I assure you they do.

When I first moved into this area, there were few restaurants of any kind, even fewer drive throughs. We had no McDonald’s nor Burger King. If we were going to eat out, we mostly had to drive up into Memphis. In a way, that was a good thing. Back then I had debts, a family and not much of of an income. Today, a $230 mortgage payment does not seem a lot. Well, in 1977, it was enormous for someone who just left the Marines and settled in a town far away from my native California.

We eked by over the years, paid off our bills, the kids are now out on their own and now, one of our major expenses are two old dogs. I do mean old, both over 12. So we spend a lot on dog food and vet bills. However, we have a very wide selection of places to eat, from large nice places to small nice places. I might add we also have a few places that are not so nice.

With the two of us getting older, I’ve decided to spoil the wife as much as I can; so we eat out more than we eat in. That saves washing dishes, if nothing else. Mostly, when we eat in, we put the microwave to use. I’ve even considered buying a second one but I’m not so sure the old aluminum wiring in the house could handle it. Therefore, from time to time, we use the stove, though we try to keep oven use to the winter.

Then the China virus hit. That was a big disruption to our life style. To the best of my knowledge, neither of us has had it, though we do know a few who have. Instantly, however, we went to using drive throughs.

Did I mention that I really hate drive throughs. However, I had no choice. Suddenly, everyone closed their dinning room. Worse, I had to wear a mask in the local grocer. They took my temp as I entered and if I got too close to that century mark, we would have had to go hungry, as well as the poor dogs. The wife and I can stand a day or two without food but the dogs have sort-of become used to a regular meal.

Besides, the wife and I could go to a drive through. Most of them do not sell dog food. I would have tried to explain but they simply would not have understood, though their vocabulary is pretty good. Being a little overweight, it would do them good to miss a meal. My best guess is that they still would not have liked it.

So, during the beginning of the pandemic, whenever we went to a restaurant for food, we went through a drive through and brought it home. Sometimes we took it to a park, when the weather permitted. It beat staring at the same walls I’ve been looking at for over thirty years.

Now, after all this time, a little less than half the restaurants have opened their dining rooms. Fortunately, 2 days before our anniversary, Outback opened their dining room. I thanked them for that and again I thank them publicly. We both had a nice steak and baked potato in really nice surroundings. In addition, neither of us washed one dish.

Now that some things are somewhat back to normal, I think back over it all. Moreover, I wonder if the next wave of the virus will drive us indoors again, and back to the drive throughs.

Then today, I thought of those who want to “save energy” and decrease “CO2.” I went back all through my memory over the time since Fauci began his rampage and I cannot find one instance of anyone wanting to do away with drive throughs.

I find the concept of using acres to generate electricity wasteful, though maybe a tad successful. I find windmills pretty useless on a calm day. Moreover, I am sure the two methods require a lot of maintenance.

Then I shake my head at the whole mess. The amount of energy produced by solar cells is likely countered by the energy wasted waiting in line for Whoppers. The carbon dioxide saved by windmills is likely greatly countered by the fumes coming from cars waiting on their driver’s Big Macs. Yet, no one has said a thing about it.

I figured out why. It really makes since. The green earth folks consider the convenience of a drive through more important than the energy used. The importance of staying in their air-conditioned autos more important carbon the spewed while they sit there and wait… their engines doing nothing while the car’s occupants remain comfortable.

Am I wrong? Maybe. Still, why do I not hear any of them complain about drive throughs.

And so it is, we are stuck here with windmills, solar cells and drive throughs forever. It’s not that we can’t do anything about it. It just seems few, if any, want to.

Besides, it makes it so much simpler for the FOCs to control us.

Twelve Days?

I feel somewhat better now that I can order China Virus tests on the internet. However, it might take up to twelve days to get to me. I figure if I have symptoms today, what would I need the test for in twelve days. I figure I will either be over it or dead by then.

I suppose I could order a couple in advance but I would feel bad keeping the tests to myself should I might not ever need them. Besides, should I want them, there I might not be able to locate it. My memory frequently fails me. Then, of course, I would find it three weeks later.

I suppose my logic is somehow wrong as I know no one else who brought up the problem.

Burrito Withdrawal

I find myself in a conundrum. Taco Bell makes my favorite burritos. On the other hand, I do not like drive-throughs. Being as all the Taco Bells in this area are strictly drive through, I haven’t been getting my share of burritos.

I think it is about time to call this whole pandemic thing off. We have meds that can treat that China stuff and, besides, I don’t like the idea that China won this round of germ warfare. It is time for us to get back to normal and ignore those war-mongers.

As for the increase of cases, someone needs to tell Joe it doesn’t do much good to shut down the airports while he has the southern barn doors wide open. I am sure that at least 1000 people a day are coming up through Mexico from who knows where. About 600 of them have the China virus and they each infect about 1800. Then those 1800 infect about 5000. That kind of isolation never worked and never will.

By the way, some of those illegal aliens have other diseases too, like TB, small pox and maybe a few we don’t know of. And Joe is worried about those coming through the airports?!! What kind of idiot is he listening to?!! The last decade or so, we stopped giving small pox vaccines because it is virtually eliminated.

Guess what happens if it turns into an epidemic in this country now. It just might wipe our half our youth before we figure out what happened. With Joe at the helm, he’ll never figure out what do do after he is told what happened. Has anyone asked Joe if he knows what small pox is and what it does?

Besides all this, I just want to be able to go into Taco Bell and enjoy a good burrito from time to time, sometimes a taco or two.

So Much for Individuality

Obama Care insurers that Uncle Sam can veto any procedures we think we need. Now mandatory vaccinatins insure we must undergo anything Uncle says we need.

Then too, just in time, they found a new variant to make sure we must be confined to our homes, regardless of the disasters to our economy and, or our society.

It does look to me like a good weapon for the final destruction of what is left of our nation…if we allow them.

Chemical is the C In NBC

One of the first things I learned about in the Marines was the meaning of NBC symbols I saw here and there. When I asked, I was told it stands for nuclear, biological and chemical… as in warfare.

To be sure we should be diligent about the nuclear aspect, but we ought not ignore the other two.

Lately, there is the new fear of the hypersonic missiles while most want to ignore the biological weapon China just released on us. I am not writing about that — as it would be redundant. I already did that.

On the other hand I want to consider the C, chemical warfare. To be sure, we are under chemical attack by China. They decided to use drugs, especially fentanyl.

They don’t release it into our water or food supplies as has been feared. With our safeguards, that would be too difficult and risky. I mean, what if they were caught. The world would instantly condemn them and, as a nation, they would quickly become insignificant.

So they provide it to the Mexican cartels and allow them to get rich whilst we, mostly our precious youth, take the poison willingly, or rather eagerly.

This they do whilst we and the world stand by and watch. To be sure, the FOCs outright cheer it on. (And they claim they are the party of the commoner)

Indeed it is far more effective than poisoning our food or water. It doesn’t just kill the one who takes it; but also it destroys the primary building blocks of all civilizations, the families. To be sure, it is also decimating our justice system. Half of all law enforcement endeavors involve drugs in one way or another. It has clogged our courts.

If we could stop drug abuse, this country would become far better overnight, if not sooner. That means one of the primary goals should be to stop the inflow of the poison. This would include but not limited to, an ultimatum to the Chinese. After all, they are the primary source of the poison and they are the nation waging the chemical warfare on us. It might also be a good idea to send some troops south to deal with those cartels. We need to teach them them the cost of crime.

Most important during a war. Don’t help the enemy. It is sort-of common sense.

New, Just Off the Wire. Cuomo Just Charged With a Sex Crime.

It is true. Can you believe it? On the other hand, he seems to be getting away with killing thousands of old folks. Bet that is okay. They are just old folks. They wont be missed anyway. Well, not by very many. Besides, all they were doing was hanging around nursing homes using important resources. They were of no use to society. It would be better sending them out on their own like many various tribes used to do. You know. Out of sight – out of mind.

A Much Better Compromise

I understand the Minority Leader’s concern for buckling here. There was an awful lot of pressure on those two senators. However, he should not have completely given in here. He should have made it contingent on restoring the border to the way it was under Trump. He should have required the walls to be completed. That would have accomplished something, maybe. It actually would have saved lives. Moreover, it would have exposed Biden’s open borders.

Wait a minute. I don’t think that McConnell would have liked that. If my memory serves me, he was not so much in favor of the wall. There were a few republicans who didn’t like the idea of cutting off the cheap labor.

I guess he could have used the alternative. He could have insisted on continuing the pipelines, drilling and fracking, including New York. This would have helped a lot. It would have helped to bring down the price of oil. It would have put people back to work and it would have made the US energy independent again.

Then again, the FOCs might not like that. They like us dependent on others, especially Russia and China. They might have preferred to let us default. Either that, or the dems would have done the increase in debt by themselves.

At least that would have exposed the FOCs for what they are, a bunch of power hungry characters that would prefer to allow death than to permit energy independence.

Another Reason to Leave New York

Just heard over the news that that they will fine you $50 for riding the subway without a mask.

Sounds like just another reason to stay away from New York.

Sounds like another good reason to leave New York.

Actually, you already have a few very good reasons. So why do you need another?

Just please… if you go to a red state, leave your liberal ideas in New York. We don’t need them. They destroyed the great state of New York and California. If you do live in New York and you insist on bringing your destructive ideas with you, please go to one of those states on the Pacific coast or Illinois. I would guess those in Ohio don’t want such ideas either. They already have more than their share of folks that don’t know how things work.

Follow the Science?

The visit that Kamala Harris had planned for the show “The View,” had to be modified. It seems two of the hosts tested positive for the China virus.

I really don’t know why the fuss. They were all fully vaccinated. All they had to do was all double mask and maintain 6 feet. Maybe, considering that she is vice president, she should maintain 8 feet and double mask. It is a matter of following the science.

My big question is this. Why have her on the program in the first place? All she will do is lie and spread the blame, which she did.

Then again, that’s sort of what the show specializes in, lying and spreading the blame. Well, there are two more things they do. They yell and make really bad jokes. That is sort of what FOCs do in general; all while maintaining political correctness.

The Question NOT Asked

A while ago, Biden answered a question about the border agents riding horses and whipping the illegal aliens. There are but two problems with that. The agents were not whipping the agents as he said they were. More important, that was NOT the question he was asked. The question he was asked was based on something that started long before any videos of horses.

The context of the question included over 18 thousand people taking refuge under a bridge as they suffered and spread disease while he and his cronies sat and watched. It was about letting those diseased people into the country without being tested or immunized for the China virus.

Actually, when you come right down to it, it started even before the election when Biden, during one of his speeches shouted out, the equivalent of y’all come!

Naturally, he did not want to answer to the context of the question. He had no answer that didn’t make him look like just exactly what he is: incompetent. He had no answer that did not reveal he is what he is: sociopath. He had no answer that would not reveal his weakness as a leader. He lacks simple common sense!

None the less, it is a common practice as I wrote in another post. If you watch, you will see it too. When they don’t like the question they are asked, they answer THE QUESTION NOT ASKED!! when they do that sort of thing, it is the primary indication they are FOCs. (Friends Of Criminals)

This part is added as an afterthought, but it is important. If there was a nice big wall, there would not be any need to use horses to heard the illegal aliens. Is it really necessary for me to remind anyone that Biden stopped the construction of the wall immediately after he was elected. Walls are more effective than whips and they are actually more humane. Very few would go 4000 miles just to face a thirty foot wall. The wall does not build up false hopes. As side benefit, they greatly reduce illegal drugs, which are far from humane.

BUILD THE WALL!!
