Another Saturday morning – topping off a glorious weather week (with some heavy weather in the forecast). Coffee is almost too hot to drink, but that’s a good thing. This week Marcia and I made a stop at our nearby Walmart. It’s not often we do this, but this was one of those days. The place always surprises me:

Why does every Walmart ever build have at least 43 checkout lanes – when they never open more than 3 ~ spotted on the internet

Yom HaShoah – Thursday (April 8th) all of Israel stopped for two-minutes to remember the Holocaust and the 6-million Jewish men, women, and children who were horrifically slaughtered by the Nazis. This short video is must watching:

Celebrate CO2 –

Far from being an impediment to continued human existence, rising levels of carbon dioxide are part of the solution to world hunger. ~ H. Sterling Burnett, Ph.D., Heartland senior fellow on environmental policy

This from an article in Heartland Institute: “most plant life arose when carbon dioxide levels were much higher than they are today. During the most recent ice age, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels fell to dangerously low levels: just 180 parts per million (ppm). Plants begin to die when carbon dioxide is at or below 150 ppm, because at that point they are unable to use sunlight to photosynthesize food from carbon dioxide and water. After Earth emerged from the most recent ice age, carbon dioxide levels rebounded to approximately 280 ppm, still far below the levels existing when plant life began to colonize the land.”

By the way, this to Greta Thunberg and her sanctimonious anger; if you must complain about this non-pollutant, then take a moment and direct some of it at China – could you?

We found our table wine – at Costco. Marcia and I (Marcia especially) have for a while now, zeroed in on Malbec as our table wine of choice. And, especially Malbec from the Mendoza Valley region in Argentina tops the list.

Well, Costco came through; boxed Malbec (equivalent of 4 bottles) at a great price and we’re thrilled.

While at Costco I did grab an item on impulse. Declared a major weapon by my bureaucratic friends, those ensconced in cubicles in Ottawa Canada, I bought a bunch of Pepper Spray. Made several family members quite happy.

Outrage –

Never in human history, in a culture of such tremendous affluence, have we witnessed such venomous outrage over issues so trivial and insignificant ~ Virgil Walker

Is this in itself a ‘micro-aggression’?

Round Table – was organized by Florida Governor Ron DeSantes. The ‘Round Table’ was then promptly removed by YouTube/Google since it’s fully credentialed panel didn’t conform to the pre-determined “consensus” of experts – they advised against lockdowns.

The panel included Oxford Epidemiologist and winner of the Rosalind Franklin award Dr. Sunetra Gupta, and other notable Drs. such as Jay Bhattacharya, Martin Kulldorff, and former White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Scott Atlas – they called the lockdown measures harmful and said that schools should reopen immediately for in-person learning – all “misinformation” according to YouTube.

So, here we have a company which touts itself as a ‘Town Hall’ which bans a sitting President, banishes anyone who questions Fauci and CDC guidance. Also Amazon which removed conservative books, Apple de-platforms alternative sites, similarly with Twitter and Reddit – see a pattern here?

Want to view the Roundtable and see for yourself what was found to be “misinformation” and “objectionable?” A copy is viewable at Reclaim the Net by clicking here.

Fini –

The southern border is stable and not in chaos as the Administration puts it deftly. It’s really interesting that Roberta S. Jacobson, the White House’s border coordinator, is resigning at the end of the month – less than 100-days on the job. No chaos, nothing to see here.

• The new $1.9T ‘Infrastructure’ bill will absolutely fill the ‘Infrastructure needs of the nation. As Senator Kirsten Gillibrand clarifies; “Paid Leave is Infrastructure, Child Care is Infrastructure, Caregiving is Infrastructure.”

• Yesterday more than 15cm (6”) fell in Whitehorse Yukon. Whitehorse was touted as having an earlier spring, a longer growing season, and having less snow. Global warming is alive and well.

Alexis de Tocqueville (1805-1859) wrote books on the French Revolution and one of them had a startling insight; “radicalism and revolution are produced not by impoverishment but by plenty.” Maybe BLM and Antifa breakouts and the like can be better understood reading Tocqueville.

• In Oregon a professor claims that math is ‘racist’ since it requires a ‘correct answer.’ OK, any more nuttiness?

• Mr. President is it just me or am I wrong assuming that Constitutional Amendments are absolute? I am confused by your statement; “No amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” If you are correct then most every dictator must also be correct since it’s a belief they hold.

• One more Climate Change thought; people who see it as their biggest problem are sooo lucky. The rest of us have more serious problems.

• Since gun control laws are again on the front burner and Executive Orders issued. Does this mean that I can assume that Hunter Biden who is accused of lying on his gun background check will be charged?

• There was a time, as a kid, I had a variety of jobs, one after another. But no, I am not this old; 9-year old kids working in the textile industry around the turn of the last century.

• Recently booked a flight. This was as what flying was like – Delta in 1969 — I’m going to do a comparison check.

• Easter family gathering, Marin and Francesca testing edible grass – must be Ohio’s beginning baby-steps into the broader world of ‘weed.’

Make it great week people, keep the peace, be happy, stay safe, be healthy and follow the science!
