Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Sinister Kitteh Shadow Wednesday, Wheelizens!
Appreciate your kind offer of “message delivery” to a certain party in Woodland Hills; sadly, the message I would like to send is quite illegal. (Else, I would be willing to fly my happy ass out to L.A. and deliver it myself…because I am a strong supporter of doing business with a “personal touch”).
Well… it was q very long day. I managed to wake up pretty early yesterday. I went to Cottonwood and did about 8 errands. I was going to visit .Milita Dave / aka Fringey Flag Dave., but I was running out of time. So I went home. I called and talked to him on my way home. That gave me a couple of hours before work. So, no nap. Twelve hours later, I’m going to sleep. I made it without getting too damn tired.
Tomorrow/this afternoon, I will see why my big computer cpu is heating up. I might have to order a new water cooler. If the old one is truly dead, then I have an air cooler that I can use in the meantime.
Good morning, Fatwa, and Dv8. Non-stop winds out here -- no fires, but I’m really tired of rapidly moving air.
Nice to see that those in power are leaning towards the “pandemic is over” side of the aisle. Are they still “following the science”? Since they never came up with consistent objective criteria that would announce the end of this bs, it makes me wonder why now. Not really -- I can guess it’s the polls and protests and other subjective political bs like Brandon needs a big win. I can’t wait for his self-congratulatory speech.
If this is the beginning of the end of pandemic theater, what will I remember most from the last two years?
1. Medical professionals stating systemic racism and police brutality were public health issues more important than covid restrictions.
2. The refusal to consider natural immunity.
3. The hypocrisy of the elites in mandating or advocating covid restriction measures that they wouldn’t apply to themselves. (“I’ll believe that it’s a crisis when the people who claim it’s a crisis start acting like it’s a crisis.”)
4. The censoring of any covid discussions that ran contrary to the official flavor of the day bs.
Life hack, er, uh, from a friend. If at the same time you have to pee and put thick blurry-making ointment in your eyes, you should pee first.
Hey, dv8 and Sven!
Since Brandon teh Feeb ran on “beating Covid”, I expect he’ll stumblingly read some self-congratulatory bullshit off a TelePrompTer and Jen Piss-Hockey will take a celebratory lap on Unclle Choo-Choo’s behalf, given that he can barely ambulate to and from a podium these days.
Some statist tool doctor claimed a day or two ago that “the science has changed” re Covid.
JFC…this phony pandemic strikes me as the biggest scam in all of human history. Which is really saying something.
Happy Wednesday, Gerbil Nation! Now in 3D!
Good morning, Fatwa, dv8 (and Harper!), and Sven!
dv8 -- I hope your computer repair goes well and doesn’t involve a need for new parts.
In re COVID restrictions -- California is lifting indoor mask mandates on Feb 15, the same day that they were supposed to be lifted when they were implemented a month ago. Except for kids in school. They still have to wear what the CDC Director called face art. Oh, and didn’t Brandon state earlier that there would be no Federal solution to COVID, that the states would have to come up with solutions?
I’m happy to see that Oregon Muse’s memory still lives on at AoS. He was a truly gifted writer and a keen observer of events and people.
Yes, he was. I miss reading his thoughts and analyses.
Long day. It still feels like I’m on the upside of the hump. Found out 15 minutes ago that I have a church meeting in another 15 minutes.
Oh, and Teh Older’s flight to Charleston tomorrow evening has been rescheduled due to weather and the new schedule they gave him not only won’t work (a 40 minute layover in Chicago, in the winter?), but it puts him into Charleston 12 hours later than originally planned. United’s website is no bueno for sh!t when it comes to trying to change flights, so he’s got to resort to calling the reservation number to see if there is anything available.
