08:49 – It was 65.3F (18.5C) when I took Colin out at 0655, with heavy fog. The little dog was again nowhere to be seen, although she did show up later.
Barbara is off to the gym this morning, and then to Blevins to look at refrigerators. I measured the refrigerator bay this morning to make sure that whichever one she chooses will actually fit the space.
One of my readers sent me a link to this article, with the subject line “even leftists are preppers now”. Which is true. You can’t get much proggier than Slate magazine.
But, like nearly all lefties who consider themselves preppers, this author can’t help slamming the prepper mindset. It comes from their delusional worldviews, where the government is always there to help people, 9-1-1 always works, and people never behave badly.
The old saying is that the only thing worse than a reformed whore is a reformed smoker, but I’ll add reformed prog to that list. As they say, a conservative is a liberal who’s been mugged, and if push comes to shove, this author–and a lot of other progs–will quickly realize that humans aren’t the sweet, cuddly creatures that progs seem to believe they are. Our species, regardless of political persuasions, is the single most dangerous animal on the planet.
Formerly, I’d have said that progs would be in deep doo-doo if TSEHTF, but that was because I temporarily forgot that progs are extraordinary hypocrites. They believe that the world owes them a living and is there for their benefit. But now progs, demonstrating that they’re world-class hypocrites, have begun buying gubs. They won’t have any clue how to actually use them, if that becomes necessary, but as they say even blind pigs get acorns. So it seems that we Normals are likely to face a bunch of armed blind pigs if push comes to shove.
