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.

The Dem’s Tightrope

The Dem’s, aka friends of the criminals, need to take care. They keep putting pressure on a couple of their own in hopes of ridding the Senate of the filibuster. They walk a dangerous tightrope. If they apply too much pressure, they could lose one or two senators from their ranks. Even if they lose one, they stand in danger of losing their 50 majority. This is true even should they become independent. They would only have 49 (maybe 48) senators while the Republicans would have 50. That would mean the majority would possibly go to the Republicans.

I am sure that most realize what that means. However, I am especially sure that Fauci knows. If such a thing happens, he will likely buy a ticket to China. If he doesn’t he will wish he did. It is quite possible, maybe plausible that he will face committee meetings that world will find out his part in the pandemic. China will be the only nation on earth where he might be safe after that. Then again, he might not be safe there either.

As an aside, it is also conceivable that those senator(s) just might be joined by other senators who will be clinging to the seats. This might be followed by a few representatives jumping the proverbial ship. Ol’ Nancy can’t afford much of that. The next thing she knows, she might lose her gavel before the mid-terms.

As an aside to the aside, the occupier and the vice occupier will not like that… not at all. Neither will the squad.

1>574

I know it seems odd that I would suggest that one is greater than five hundred seventy-four, but it would seem to be true. After 574 riots, which resulted in deaths and over a billion dollars in damages, there was absolutely no desire for investigation. On the other hand, a few people go in and wonder about the Capital and we need an immediate Congressional investigation. And, by the way, before the investigation is truly begun, we find that it was as bad as the attack on Pearl Harbor and the one on the the trade center.

The concept is as believable as 1 being greater than 574. However it does show where the FOCS are.

Equivalence ?

In the last part of 8th grade math, I began learning about algebra. I learned about expressions and factors. I learned about constants, variables and rules on how to work with it all. Finally, I learned about equations.

On 9/11, along with unknown other millions, I saw two big jet planes fly into two huge buildings. After, while still watching, I could hear faint thuds coming from the TV. In a while they explained that it was the sound of people hitting the ground. They jumped knowing they would die. They preferred it over the fire.

A short time later, I saw those buildings collapse.

Now, Kamala wants us to put an equal sign between 9/11 and 1/6, the break in of Capital Building. No equal sign should ever be between the two events. Anyone trying to assign such an equivalence needs her head examined.

Let me correct that. There’s no need for an examination. She is already certifiable. I think most of us are well aware of it.

By the way, as usual, I have a side note. It would seem Nancy Pelosi wants to investigate 1/6, just not too closely. Certainly not her part in securing the premises. She did not want the security and certainly doesn’t want it becoming common knowledge. Could it be that she expected it. If so, she must have been behind it. Just a wild guess. Yet, who can prove me wrong? Nancy won’t release the documents that would prove me wrong.

Moreover, Nancy and her cohorts have taken maximum advantage of the entire thing.

A Brief Word on Fairness

I have two dogs. Suzie-Q is a mix lab and Chinese Sharpe. Misty is some kind of hunting dog, I guess. Both are rescues but they don’t know it. They both figure they are part of the family.

They have something of a sense of fairness. When I give one a treat, the other one knows she is going to get one too. If I walk one, the other expects she will have her chance as well. If I pet one, the other comes over and reminds me that she needs attention too. I had to buy each of them a bed. If I hadn’t you can imagine what that would be like.

The point is, they both know that fair is fair. That appears to be more than some people know. Expecting men and women to compete against each other in most sports events is just wrong. Then again maybe I am the one who is wrong. Maybe these people know it isn’t fair. In fact, I think they do. Certainly, if a dog understands fairness, certainly people who have letters following their name know something of fairness.

It sort makes things worse; doesn’t it?

Has Anyone Noticed, That is Besides Me?

After the Vietnam war was virtually won, the dems pulled out all the financing and forced us to abandon millions to whom we made promises. Never mind that millions should die. They were just a bunch of orientals. No skin off our backs.

After President Eisenhower set up a perfect Bay of Pigs Invasion, Kennedy’s nearly first act was to leave a bunch of brave Cuban’s in the lurch. Many died. The Soviets took the island nation and immediately planted missiles on it, nearly resulting in a WW III. Oddly, Kennedy is held in high esteem for that fiasco. Never could figure that out.

After President Bush freed the nation of Iraq and promised that we would provide protection for them, Obama immediately withdrew, resulting in a bloodbath.

After President Trump arranged a good logical withdrawal, Joe just couldn’t wait to use his own methods. Then, after he promised to bring all the Americans home, he won’t even help finance the efforts of others to go in and get them. And, by the way, he also left our allies out on a ledge.

It’s no wonder other countries don’t believe our promises. The democrats never keep them. They go out of their way to break them.

May I also note, Joe is about to break two more promises. Russia is about to go into Ukraine and China is about to go into Taiwan.

I think after that, I wouldn’t trust the dems either…ever.

However. Never fear. Soon all rider mowers in California will be electric and the seas will remain in its limits…mostly.

ANOTHER PELOSI LIE

Nancy finally seems to have noticed all the lawlessness. I know this because she has admitted it, though I would suspect it was very reluctantly.

Then, she has the nerve to claim she doesn’t know where it all comes from. That’s not just a lie. It’s a very poor attempt at deceit. Indeed she was one of the primary architects of the Looting, arson and, indeed, rioting and even murder.

After she took an oath to protect the US and the Constitution, Nancy and her communist comrades have done what they can to destroy both. The sad thing is she uses the freedoms guaranteed by The Constitution to destroy it and the rights it promises.

Just what greater falsehood can be uttered?

The Best Place

I write this for one simple reason. Some people just can’t understand the sudden rise in crime. 1st let me suggest a couple of solutions for those who have stores that are subject to the recent crime wave. Armor your business so that it is difficult for the criminals to enter. That way, the criminals will do criminaling somewhere else. Hiring security is OK, but in the current environment, it will do little good and you just might get sued. Even when you when the suit, it will still cost you an arm and a leg. The lawyers have seen to that.

Then you build a solid anti-room for entering and one for exiting your business. This will ensure that only 1 or 2 at a time enter. While they are in the anti-room, require an ID and credit card. Notify them that they will be charged for anything they take or damage. Insist they sign an agreement before letting them into the area where you have your merchandise. Finally, before they leave, search them completely to make sure they are not taking what they have not paid for.

OR you can simply close the business and go to a city where such problems don’t exist.

This may not completely solve your problems but it just might force the cities to solve theirs.

NOW as for solving the problem.

It is simpler than you might imagine. Put the criminals in prison and keep them there as long as possible. Even if they are not rehabilitated, their criminal endeavors will be greatly reduced. Besides, it will put teeth to the saying that crime does not pay. It would seem, right now, it does.

As for why those in charge don’t already do this, that is simple too. They don’t want to. Those in charge of locking up the criminals are the Friends Of Criminals (FOC). Indeed, some are criminals. Why would they want to lock up their friends when it enhances their bank accounts to let their criminal friends do criminal things? As an aside, they are also friends of lawyers. Think of all the money they get out of it all.

So, instead of going after criminals, they go after those who go after criminals in every way they can. To be sure, they don’t like it when they are so embarrassed by honest people making them look bad. Besides, it is cutting into their profit. [Has anyone noticed? The Clinton slush fund(so-called charity) has drastically shrunk since they no longer have any influence to sell. On the other hand, I would expect that Joe will be a multi-billionaire when he leaves office, whether that is vertically or horizontally.]

Just remember, it is about power and money. Those who go into office without it, generally have plenty as they leave. Those that do leave without with power and money, we can truly label as honest, usually. To be sure, politics is a dog-eat-dog world. Sometimes, even the dishonest ones get eaten by the dishonest ones.

To go back to the main theme. The best way to have thriving businesses, keep the criminals in prison! It is the best place for them and keeping them there is the best for the honest folk. If a few lawyers go hungry, maybe that’s best too.

Speaking of criminals, why isn’t Fauci behind bars where he can’t invent any more viruses?

The Summary of the Last 4 Dem Presidents

Obama forced Obama Care down our throats with the help of Nancy. (what a pair) Of course, being a former pres, he doesn’t need Obama Care. Isn’t he the lucky one. He can use his savings to build that sea wall he is going to need when the seas start getting deeper.

The only thing Jimmy Carter did was to give away the Panama Canal. Really wish we had that back.

Bill Clinton’s fame to claim is that he felt our pain. I’m pretty sure he didn’t. Regardless, he certainly doesn’t now. He’s living high on the hog and has a nice big house. If you ask me, he belongs in the big house.

Now Joe. I guess his main theme is that he has specialized in causing pain. The bad part is that I don’t know if he even knows it. Could someone please tell him?

Rumors

There are rumors and then there are rumors about rumors. While I was in the Marines, I learned only to believe the bad rumors. It was surprising how often I was right. When I was wrong, I was never disappointed.

Normally, I try to stay away from rumors. It is sort of like gossiping and the Bible tells us that we shouldn’t do that. Nonetheless, I heard one rumor that just took hold of me, not that I want to spread it, but that I want to study it for just a short while.

It seems that someone has suggested that the FOCs have been looking into the procedures on how to replace a vice-president.

I thought on the subject. Just, why would they want to replace the VP? I figure it this way. They just might be thinking about what to do should Joe kick the bucket. On the other hand, maybe his lack mental ability have become so obvious that they want to talk him into resigning. “Come on Joe. You know we like you but we are getting tired of sending out search parties for you in The White House.” Of course you know this part is not true. I am sure they always keep a handler nearby, but you get the idea.

I really hate to think of it, but should Joe resign, we will be looking at Kamala as Commander in Chief and she’s the border czar that can’t seem to find the border. Oddly, she scares me more than Joe.

Then the thought occurs to me. There is no way Kamala would ever get re-elected. Remember, she’s the one that dropped out of the primaries before things even got started. The truth is, if it wasn’t for the fact that she is black and female, ol’ Joe would have never have selected her for a running mate. To this day, he probably wishes he hadn’t. Remember, he knows his frailty better than any of us and it is probable that even he is scared of what might happen should he have to leave her in charge.

That would suggest that they might want to first replace Kamala as VP and then, maybe replace Joe. Then, they would be in search of another VP.

This thought does sort of disturb me. Though we just might end up with a better president and VP, neither of them will have been elected. They will have been selected by the FOCs. That is scary. The might even select Pelosi or Mrs. Clinton. You remember her, Ms Deplorable herself.

Of course, none of this is likely true. Then again, remember my rule, “Believe only the bad rumors and you will never be disappointed.”
