Patty’s Return to the Supermarket

Stop & Shop, union seek 'extended first responder' designation - Connecticut Post

My wife has COPD, which puts her in a very high-risk group for the Chinese Communist coronavirus. Consequently, it’s been six months since she’d been inside anywhere but our own apartment. That’s a long time to be cooped up, and it was getting to her.

So yesterday I urged her to shop with me today. “You need a change,” I said. “You need to see the interior of some place other than just this apartment. So come to the store with me. Wear your mask under your nose, so you can breathe, and your face shield, and come into the store and push a cart around–even if only for a few minutes. You can put all your stuff in my cart for checkout, so you won’t have to stand in line. It’ll do you good! After all, all those clerks have been there every day since March and none of them have gotten sick.”

And for once I was right. “I enjoyed that!” she admitted. “The other night I dreamed I went shopping again: that tells you how much I’ve missed it. I’m so glad I did this, and I’ll do it again on Monday!” Yeah, I think it pumped her up.

Getting back to normal life ought to be at the top of America’s to-do list.

Back to School? Are You Sure?

Ways To Deal With Kids Who Have Fallen Into Bad Company -

I have to wonder about the passel of alleged conservative commentators who keep saying “We’ve got to send the children back to school! Got to!” Even if they have to do all kinds of awkward things to keep the kiddies Safe from the Wuhan Communist Death Virus. Come September–only six weeks away–we’ve gotta re-open the schools.

Why? Millions of kids are now learning at home. Why send them back to public school?

Uh… for “socialization”? Yeah, that’s it! Socialization! They gotta be in school so they can have socialization.

That means socialization by other kids, your age-group peers. God help us.

Weren’t these guys ever kids themselves? Don’t they remember? Hey! Hello! Who encouraged you, when you were a kid, in every bad thing you ever did? Who did them with you, did them first, dared you to do them?

Other kids!

That kind of socialization, the kind offered by the public schools, no one needs. The lesson that your age-group peers are the most important people in the world, way more important than your boring old family, and that conforming to their style, their wishes, and their expectations is the most important thing that you can do–that’s the No. 1 lesson that you learn in public school.

God pity us, how we’re paying for handing our kids over to marxist education theorists and damned fools–to be “educated” by them! And then we’ve got our public colleges and universities to finish the job.

We have a golden opportunity, just now, to get out from under the boot-heel of public education.

Please let’s not blow it.

Drive-Through Citizenship?

Drive into the parking garage, roll down your window and take the oath, and drive out 30 minutes later as an official U.S. citizen–huh?

At first it sounds like yet another Democrat scheme to stock the voter rolls with persons of uncertain legitimacy; but it’s not as bad as it sounds.

The people receiving their citizenship in their cars are legal immigrants who have gone through all the usual steps of obtaining citizenship. The unusual ceremony–hardly any kind of ceremony at all–has been taken up by the US Citizenship and Immigration Service because they’re in a budget crunch, they’ve already furloughed lots of workers, and if they don’t get another $1.2 billion in emergency funding by Aug. 1, they’ll have to furlough thousands more. People who come here honestly, and who make a commitment to this country, deserve better: but it seems this is the best we can do for the time being.

It’s all that virus stuff, don’t you know. With the pestilence stalking the world, most countries, including ours, aren’t eager to throw open their doors even to lawful immigrants.

But of course Democrats want them coming here illegally, so they can protect them and give them free stuff and count on their eternal political support. They’ll keep the COVID-19 scare going forever, if they can. But that’s another issue.

It would be good to go back to the traditional citizenship ceremony that honors those who seek to become new citizens. Maybe someday, when globalism has been routed and there’s no more perpetual quarantine, we can go back to being America. It would be good to go back to being America. Not some socialist latrine.

How Much of This Do We Believe?

People Wearing Mask Images, Stock Photos & Vectors | Shutterstock

I see the same employees at the supermarket every time I go, which is twice a week at least. They’re always there.

Now, we’ve been told the Wuhan Chicom Death Virus is a major pestilence that’s gonna wipe out hundreds of thousands of us, if not millions–yeah, let’s make it millions. And there are all these “spikes” in states that have made the mistake of letting people out of house arrest and allowing some of the economy to come back on line. We are never told just how sick these people in the “spike” are getting.

Anyway, if all this alarmist stuff were true… wouldn’t we all know people who’ve caught COVID-19 and died of it?

I’ve taken to asking my friends at the supermarket, “Do you know anyone who’s had COVID-19?” The answer is always no. Always.

I asked my wife, who reads the news intently, “Is it just me, or is there more and more skepticism about The Virus?”

Well, it’s not just me. There is now a lot of skepticism. I mean, if The Virus was everything “they” said it was, wouldn’t it be impossible to deny it? Would there be any room for skepticism? But people are now calling it “the Plan-demic” and depicting it as another insidious plot by globalists to take over the world and devour everybody’s freedom.

Is it not obvious that Democrats want this agony to go on for as long as possible–right up to Election Day, if they can swing it–so they can blame Trump and get weird demented corrupt Joe Biden elected president? How many times has this ploy worked–make a big fat mess and then blame it on the other guy?

One thing I know: Americans have shown an unexpected spinelessness, a whole new willingness to be controlled and cossetted. We are not the same sort of people who threw the tea into Boston harbor.

This is to our shame.

Do We Really Want to Send Them Back to School?

Why are our children so bored at school, cannot wait, get easily ...

Now they’re talking about sending the kids back to school, the Chinese Communist Death Virus scare coming to an end. But there’s a question that ought to be asked.

Should we? Do we really need them all to be in public schools?

Of course not. You’d have to be daft to think so.

I can’t think of anything I ever learned in school that my mother and father couldn’t have taught me at home. My father, with only a 1930s high school education himself, taught me arithmetic where the classroom professionals failed. All right, neither of my parents could have taught me chemistry; but I wasn’t able to learn it in school, either. Besides, back then it was the 1950s, homeschooling was virtually unheard-of, and whereas today we have an abundance of homeschooling resources at popular prices, back then… there was nothing.

At one point during my grade school career, school authorities had begun to think of me as a rather stupid little boy, slow on the uptake. This was because I couldn’t read what was written on the blackboard. I needed glasses! But I was only nine or ten years old and didn’t know I needed glasses. For all I knew, everything was supposed to look blurry.

Glasses acquired, end of problem. Not stupid, after all.

What has America’s education establishment done in the last 50 years, besides teach children to hate their country and disrespect their families? To say nothing of the overall Big Lesson of public schooling that has always been with us: Your age-group peers are the most important people in the world, and you win their approval by conforming to them.

And on top of all that, public school is boring! It is the gold standard for boredom. It is to boredom what Mozart was to music. Mind-numbing, stultifying boredom.

Are you absolutely, positively sure you want to send them back to that?

My Newswithviews Column, June 11 (‘”Science” Disgraces Itself’)

See the source image

Never mind the social distancing! Let’s have a Mass Protest!

I hope you’ll all click the link to my Newswithviews column today–’cause we could actually witness the demise of science, as an avidly willing sacrifice on the altar of Far Left politics.

‘Science’ Disgraces Itself

(This computer, by the way, is giving me fits this morning. Do computers take LSD when we’re not looking?)

I think we have actually reached the point where a “scientist” will say anything, if it seems to be politically expedient. True or false, right or wrong, never enter into it.

Pagans, all of them.

Are Our ‘Health Officials’ Quite All There?

Napkins 33x33 cm - Happy Puppies by Wimmel Napkins

We’re gonna need the happy puppies for this one.

Let’s see… We’ve got this pandemic, so we can’t have a family picnic to celebrate Grandma’s birthday, we can’t go to church, our kids can’t go to school… Because our expert “health officials” have told us that all such gatherings are “non-essential” and we have to preserve “social distancing” or else COVID-19 will wipe us out…

But now they’re telling us it’s okay to get together for a riot?

Well, yeah: that’s what they’re telling us ( Only of course they won’t say “riot.” It’s all just “mass protest.”

A quote from just one of these wackos, an epidemiologist at Johns Hopkins, will serve for all:

“In this moment the public health risks of not protesting to demand an end to systemic racism greatly exceed the harms of the virus.” So if thousands of the demonstrators get sick–oh, well, it was worth it. Right?

“Systemic racism?” Yeah. That’s that thing they invented to take the place of real racism after it had mostly passed away. Because “systemic racism” is unconscious, it’s supposedly part of our makeup whether we like it or not, we’re all guilty and never mind a trial, and it’s largely vague and undefined anyway, “systemic racism” is tailor-made for the racial grievance industry, which does not want to lose its job.

These are the “science” wiz kids. We’re supposed to believe them, always, no matter what kind of daft crapola they unload on us.

“Science” is at risk of becoming nothing more than window-dressing for politics–if it hasn’t become that already.

Their “science” is mere politics, and these people have to be utterly defeated if our country is to survive.

Back to Work, at Last

I haven’t seen this animal in Obann yet–Doedecurus, a giant South American armadillo with a tail club. But I suspect it’s only a matter of time before one or more of them turns up.

Finally! I sat outside and wrote a scene in my new book–which has only just started, and only God knows where the story’s going to take me. Indeed, after I post this, I think I’ll go back and write some more.

Hot tip heard on the radio this morning:

Want to keep your face mask/badge of submission disinfected? Nothing could be easier. Just leave it in your car (I’ve hung mine from the rearview mirror) and let the intense heat that builds up in there kill the germs. Be sure to shut your windows.

And now, back to Obann City for Lord Chutt’s treason trial.
