Sorry for the long delay in posting.
As noted before, we have been involved in buying property in Raleigh. Done! We finally have begun moving in our stuff, getting internet, etc. Hate the process. The Diplowife loves it. She must have been Eisenhower or Hannibal (Barca, not Lecter) in a prior life. She loves logistics, leading and designing great operations with lots of moving parts revolving around precise timing. I prefer the more simple, sweat-pant life, but with the Generalissimo around, no hope of that . . . Anyhow, all is not lost: I am having a man-cave built that will house me along with my 150 or so pistols, rifles, and shotguns in secure splendor. In recent days, I have added to that mostly peaceful collection: a Colt Defender .45, a Guncrafter Hellcat 9mm, another STI Staccato 9mm, and a Baby Desert Eagle 9mm. I will, of course, dump them in the nearby lake very soon.
The political scene continues depressing beyond all belief.
This Obama 2.0 fiasco will prove even more disastrous than the original version. We will all be POWs (Prisoners of the Woke) as we go MIA (Mad in America). The fraudulent "Biden" administration has begun with a flurry of Executive Orders, and vows to redesign our economy (more below). The progs, of course, are chasing after Trump, trying to "impeach" and convict him after he's left office: the precedent is set, my friends, for future endless persecutions of political rivals. I propose, for example, impeaching Obama for "Fast and Furious," Benghazi, and, along with VP Biden, for Russia-Gate--just for starters, mind you. The GOP, however, seems hopeless when it comes to fighting back, and most probably wouldn't do that, or even lay it out as a possibility. They can keep blowing up my phone asking for money: ain't gonna happen.
The "Biden" plan to deal with the fake pandemic is catastrophic. The vaccine roll-out is, to put it mildly, awkward, inept, and inefficient. They can blame it on Trump, of course, but that won't wash for long. The numbers of dead keep getting adjusted as it now turns out the New York State numbers are wrong. Cuomo should be impeached. Every day the media is reporting on COVID "variants"--the UK variant, the South African variant, etc. All meant to keep us terrified, drinking the prog Kool-Aid, wearing our absurd masks, and looking to Von Hidenburg, aka Biden, for salvation.
On the economy. What can I say?
We are in for a disastrous ride. "Biden" wants $15/hr minimum wage. Right. The real plan, of course, is to kill the lower cost red states, wipe out the generally pro-Trump small and mid-size businesses, and create unemployment requiring dependence on government and Dem-run programs. In one stoke of his pen, Governor Le Petomane, aka Biden, has devastated a great swath of the US (and Canadian) energy industry. He has once again halted the Keystone pipeline, and certainly anti-fracking actions will follow. His moronic, evil, entourage wants to destroy US energy independence, and put tens-of-thousands of energy workers out of jobs in the name of Gaia. All this, of course, benefits Putin (remember him?), the Iranians, and the rest of OPEC. The Paris Climate Accord is again the darling of the "President"; an accord that should properly be known as the China & India Coal Industry Promotion Deal
The "President" has begun recreating the chaos that, prior to Trump, had existed on our southern border, to the chagrin of the Mexicans who were quite happy with Trump's policy. For the first time in decades, order was being established along that border. Now Mexico sees the prospects of renewed Central American "caravans" and, as noted, renewed chaos, violence, corruption, etc., along the border. Just what Mexico needed. Not to mention just what our border communities needed. A massive betrayal.
In the Middle East, Trump's gigantic steps towards peace are being reversed as the Iranians get placated. The Israelis and the Arabs will have to strike their own accords and engage in other actions, no USA, to deal with the Iranians.
Civil liberties have come under an assault not seen since the days of Woodrow Wilson. The Biden mouthpieces in the media and high tech are demonizing conservative voices, getting them "deplatformed" and "demonetized." The universities have gone full steam ahead suppressing dissent among faculty and students. Fake science is being promoted and resistance will not be tolerated.
The communists/fascists have taken power. Beijing licks its chops.
