Nice, cool no’easter blowing thru our little section of the sunshine state.

Good morning.

James D.

Perhaps if the Fauci Regime had not moved the goalposts suggesting even after being vaccinated lockdown rules and masks should continue, some of the public might not have concluded "what's the point?"

And if the MSM didn't report every single bad reaction to a vaccine in blaring front-page headlines.

MissMarple2

Good morning!

No precipitation as of now, but the current temperature is 36 so it looks like no yard work today, since the high will only be 52. (That's too chilly for my arthritis.)

However, the extended outlook is for 80 n Tuesday!! Yay!

Old Lurker

James, imagine if they posted bad WuFlu reactions as compared to Birth Control Pills. Or Viagra.

Speaking of ads:

It’s time to free ourselves of the burden of overconsumption. Buying better and keeping the things we buy longer can reduce waste for the planet on the whole. #buybetterwearlonger

Short video ad at the link.
========================================
Comment by Miss Marple: If this isn't the damn stupidest ad campaign I have ever seen, I don't know of a dumber one.

1. Make customers feel GUILTY about buying your product.
2. Encourage them to NOT buy.

This is why I foresee a booming business in garage sales this summer, in which people buy used items at cheaper prices and sellers get CASH which is not traceable or taxed.

When I give an extra, unrecorded cash tip to the kids who deliver my groceries, I always thank them and point out that they don't have to declare it on taxes. HA! The young black woman who delivered yesterday thought I was sweet and hilarious. LOL!

Also, if you own Levis stick, sell it.

James D.

The MSM (and the Democrats, and plenty of Republicans) have no one but themselves to blame for any public distrust of vaccines.

The MSM and Dems (and many in GOP) have railed for years and years about the evil and greed of Big Pharma.

Combine that with the requirements to list all common side effects in every drug commercial (without any context as to the actual probability of those effects occurring), so that at least half of every ad is comprised of "you may experience migraines, vomiting, loss of appetite, leprosy, spontaneous human combustion or other harmful effects"

Is it any wonder that a lot of people are hesitant to sign up to take a new vaccine that's been created in a crash program by the same companies they've been told for years are evil and careless?

Old Lurker

James, for me, the entire government at all levels has achieved the "If their lips are moving, they are lying" status.

All of them.

@JerryDunleavy
omitting a key fact like the knife being clearly visible in her hand as she swings it at the other girl is willfully & intentionally deceptive

Nicholas Fondacaro @NickFondacaro
In their report on the officer-involved shooting in Columbus, Ohio, NBC Nightly News deceptively edited the 911 call to leave out the part where the caller says a girl was "trying to stab us." They also don't show viewers the knife in the attacker's hand just before the shots.

Good Morning! I have the lanai door open. The birds are singing their morning songs.

VP Harris will be in New Hampshire on Friday to promote the American Jobs program. Huh.NH is about 2,500 miles from the Texas border.

Re the WuFlu in India, had an email from a customer yesterday indicating they are getting 300K/day positive tests. No idea whether that is using our bogus 35 or 40 cycle count.

James D.

James, for me, the entire government at all levels has achieved the "If their lips are moving, they are lying" status.

No question. What's the most insulting about it is how they really seem to believe that they can change their lies 180 degrees from one day to the next and we'll all just uncritically swallow it.

On the other hand, half the electorate does precisely that, so I guess they're not wrong to believe it.

Mel "Dems took advantage of fear and confusion to expand their authority..."

WAY WAY too passive. Makes it sound as if "fear and confusion" just appeared as if by virgin birth, then the Dems took advantage.

The Left CREATED the fear and confusion intentionally and then took advantage of it.

If you have relatives or friends which are listening to NBC/MSNBC as their primary news source, this should get their attention.

The contracts, according to the complaint, also required the cities to employ ‘voter navigators’ to help voters ‘complete their ballots.’ The navigators would later be “trained and utilized as election inspectors.

The Left lied about the “armed insurrection” of Jan. 6. We now know the truth.

But guess what? Most people will still believe the lie. Corrections to the story later, buried under the fold or on Page D43 or aired in a blurb at the end of a broadcast, don’t make a difference to most people.

You get one chance to make a “first impression” that forms people’s opinions and emotional responses.

The media knows this, and exploits it to their advantage.

--Iggy,

I hear you, but I tend to think that there isn't a right to be homeless and be left alone about that. And that seems to be the LA gestalt.--

This isn't directed at you Jim [or Matt] but at a lawless judge - tough shit.
The answer to the legislative or executive branches not doing their jobs is not for a judge to start doing it for them. It is the voters' job to hire guys to do so. And if they don't care enough to do it then it is up to the private sector to [of course it should be up to them in the first place].
But even if no one at any level cares to do it then it should simply not be done rather than having our system of government usurped and corrupted.
That's how we frickin got here, and here is not where any country should be.

Was at my local grocery store on the afternoon of the Floyd verdict and one of the checker girls said to the other 'No verdict yet' and my impression was they were not hoping for a 'guilty' one.
And I have been impressed that except for the usual suspects there has been widespread rejection of the verdict by the sane portion of the citizenry.
The great unresolved question of the age is - is acquiescence growing, leading to surrender or is anger growing leading to a revolt?
Most of us have our positions staked out so no point rehashing them. Time will tell.

When my right hand calms down from writing up the quotes from brookinfs, the aft, and the nea I will explain what just came up at earth day conference on the plans for us. Anyone who has read my most recent post will realize how much I appreciated the quote on the need to use education to create new 'belief systems' so that those can converge with desired public policy.

Climate justice is only achievable with environmental justice which requires racial justice and there we go. The necessity for electoral fraud gets explained because now they have a President creating the needed public policy and enacting it.

Had two webinars yesterday. At a certain level everyone agrees the revolution is on and they sometimes even say that if you are listening as I have been.

At least a third of French wine production worth almost €2bn (£1.7bn) in sales will be lost this year after rare freezing temperatures devastated many vines and fruit crops across France, raising concerns over the climate crisis.

“This is probably the greatest agricultural catastrophe of the beginning of the 21st century,” the French agriculture minister, Julien Denormandie, said this week as the government declared an “agricultural disaster” and began preparing emergency financial measures.

The unseasonal wave of bitter frost and ice hit suddenly after a bout of warm weather, which worsened the damage. The warmth had encouraged vines and fruit trees to develop earlier than usual, only to be withered by the sudden cold.

Moderation in Dekalb County.

So, here we are with Home Depot in the spotlight. There are four specific demands leveled at Home Depot in order to avoid further action from the activists.

Rev. Lee May, the lead pastor of Transforming Faith Church, said the coalition is “fluid in this boycott” but has four specifics requests of Home Depot: To speak out publicly and specifically against SB 202; to speak out against any other restrictive voting provisions under consideration in other states; to support federal legislation that expands voter access and “also restricts the ability to suppress the vote;” and to support any efforts, including investing in litigation, to stop SB 202 and other bills like it.

“Home Depot, we’re calling on you. I’m speaking to you right now. … We’re ready to have a conversation with you. You haven’t been ready up to now, but our arms are wide open. We are people of faith. People of grace, and we’re ready to have this conversation, but we’re very clear those four things that we want to see accomplished,” May said.

The Rev. Timothy McDonald III, senior pastor of the First Iconium Baptist Church, warned this was just the beginning.

“It’s up to you whether or not, Home Depot, this boycott escalates to phase two, phase three, phase four,” McDonald said. “We’re not on your property — today. We’re not blocking your driveways — today. We’re not inside your store protesting — today. This is just phase one.”
