Cool and hopefully dry. Yesterday actually got nice at my house, although other parts of Houston got a good soaking.
I was pretty well sidelined by my continuing knee issue yesterday. And I had some nausea and gastro-intestinal distress brought on by poor dining choices, or, the constant knee pain. Or embrace the power of ‘and’…
In any case, I didn’t go out, and I didn’t crawl around on my knees, and I didn’t lift anything heavy. My brain was not fully engaged in much either. Every time I start making progress, something knocks me off track.
So today I’m forcing the issue. I have an appointment to drop off more auction items. I WILL get out and do that, as long as it’s not raining. I’ve only got the pickup truck, so I can’t really do it if it’s bucketing down.
I did do the tiniest bit of moving and sorting and organizing.
Later daughter one and I worked the heavy bag for a bit and had a nice chat. Then we watched some Miami Beach chick fights so she could see what that looks like ‘for realz’. She made the obvious observation. There MUST be some video of white ‘youths’ fighting and rioting on Spring Break somewhere, right? They’re just being suppressed by the white privilege police, right?
And then I went to bed early. I’ve been trying to get back on a more ‘normal’ schedule, but between the time change and spring break laziness, I have been up too late, and in bed too long.
I’m looking at the news and it occurred to me… Biden cancelling the Cherry Blossom viewing and closing monuments keeps tourists from seeing the fence and standing army. It keeps them from posting pictures for others to see. When was the last time you saw a picture of the fence or the NG on duty? They are both still there…
Biden doesn’t want pictures of the holding facilities near the border. He* knows how bad it looks since they used similar images against Trump. So we don’t see any.
I have to go to crowd sourced news to see video of the riotous crowds in Miami Beach. The protected class is doing what it so often does, and that doesn’t fit the narrative. Now that two of them drugged and raped a white girl, leading to her death- that is making the tabloid press at least. I expect all kinds of arm waving and then it ends up spun as a caution to stay home in these perilous times.
Various parts of Europe are supposedly hip deep in new china flu cases, but where are the pictures of overwhelmed hospitals?
Is Portland still having nightly troubles? What’s the status of the takeover at the “Red House” where all those young white kids decided to help those poor black folks with their eviction problem?
How the heck did it become commonplace for our big metro areas and even our secondary and tertiary cities to be 1/3 latino? Like gun ownership, the press keeps repeating the same number, as if nothing has changed, but people still keep buying guns, people still keep pouring over the borders. “10M illegals” my flabby @ss. When we’ve got 15000 unaccompanied minors in custody in the space of months? When there are charter bus lines rolling from the border towns to ‘up north’ every day? When there is a remittance store on every block? When the billboards are in spanish?
What’s in common with these things and so many more? “Nothing to see here, move along….” and then the attention moves along, and the problem fades away. What other things are we just not even aware of because no one is showing it? What else is being downplayed, sidestepped, diminished, and when will it ‘come out of nowhere’ to suddenly bite us in the @ss?
Something will, you can count on that. We got two mass shootings right on schedule…
*By Biden I of course mean “Team Biden” and not the empty skinsuit who shuffles on and off stage when prodded. He should talk to Hillarity’s team of satanists, necromancers, and resurrectionists and find out what they’re using. He’s always been an ‘also ran’ second stringer though, never could get ‘the good stuff’.
