JULY 30, 2022
I start off my day by devouring a bowl of delicious cold cereal while perusing the morning news on Fox Breaking News. This works well for me because I really don’t like to see another live human until at least 10:00 am. My marriage is very compatible with my quirkiness, because my wife and dog don’t like to get out of bed before 10:00 am. So put that together with working from home, and it’s a great life. People from my business life start calling around 8:00, but it is strictly verbal communication, and I try as often as I can to suggest they send me an email, citing having a record of our conversation. Now, all of this may sound strange for a blogger who is constantly shooting off his mouth, but again, it’s a one-way thing. If you make a negative comment about my blog, which rarely happens, I can assign the complainer a very obscene name, and simply ignore it. I often tell people the older I get, the more I understand hermits. Don’t misunderstand me, I really like people, as long as I don’t have to interact with them before 10:00 am.
RECESSION, WHAT RECESSION?
The Biden clown show is insisting we are not in a recession. Biden has a track record of trying to make things better by simply saying they are better. The first time I really noticed this strange trait was in the last days of the Afghan government. The U.S. installed president of Afghanistan was in a panic mode, and Biden was telling him to tell everyone everything is fine and hang in there. Well, the guy knew better and took the money and ran. Hey Joe, it didn’t work then, and it ain’t gonna work now. We know better.
The following are my recession indicators. I live near the I-5 corridor in the Pacific Northwest, and the traffic flow, is noticeably lighter. The gas station I frequent, used to have perpetual lines at the pumps, now I can pick any pump I want. Five stores in the shopping center where I buy groceries have closed. The food market is a discount style market, tonight one cash register lane was open, and one self-checkout lane. Down the street on Saturday evening last week, Shari’s restaurant only had about four cars in the lot. I was on my way to Appleby’s for takeout. When I arrived there, the parking lot had less than twenty cars. The main drag through my little town is four lanes, and in good times is extremely busy. Everyday traffic now, looks like the Obama years. A mama duck and five ducklings could cross the street very safely now.
I make my living bidding construction jobs as a subcontractor. Five months ago, my computer was filled with bid requests. Those bid requests have diminished by probably at least 60%. I went to Lowes Hardware last week to pick up a few items, only one out of six checkouts was open. Maybe twenty folks in a huge store. Also, stock on the shelves is noticeably on the thin side. Every recession has a repeating phenomenon. The items you buy get smaller in content, for the same price. Years ago, during a deep recession, toilet paper rolls got smaller in width. They never returned to the original size before the recession. Did you ever wonder why there is so much left-over space in your toilet roll holder?
We are in a recession. Trust me, I know what I am talking about. I have lived through some doozies. I know all of the indicators. This one is going to be a doozie.

I should probably stay away from commenting on this story.
THE MORE WE KNOW ABOUT ELECTRIC VEHICLES, THE MORE UNATTRACTIVE THEY BECOME.
The climate cult has been raving about the attributes of EV’s for years, and how they are going to save the world. Well, the more we know about what it takes to build and operate one of these vehicles, the more we realize just how environmentally unfriendly they really are. I will be doing another article about this soon. I did one a couple of years ago, but more information is now available.
Refuse to allow the left to change our language and culture. Do not bend to their demands to use different words to describe common everyday things like mothers, women, babies, and numerous other things. Breast milk is always going to be breast milk, and men don’t get pregnant. Transgender men and women don’t exist. You will die as whatever sex you were at birth. Men can’t become women by genital mutilation and vice versa. Popeye said it best; ” I yam what I yam”.
