It has finally cooled off some.
Among other things, I went to Walmart in town today. While I was there, I found the newest edition of Off Grid. I haven't had a chance to look at it yet, but I'm always glad to find something to read.
When I picked it up, some fellow came up and said "magazines sure is high these days." He was right. I think Off Grid costs me $9.00 and you can't subscribe yet. When I read a book, I always have a yellow legal pad so I can make notes. I'm going to start doing that with magazines. Recently I tried to find an add I saw in a new magazine, and I haven't been able to do so yet. Very annoying. Shotgun News gives you an advertisers index in every magazine. That's a big help in going back and finding something you were interested in.
This issue looks like it has a lot on using a boat as a bug out vehicle. I'll have to send a copy to my brother on the Oregon coast.
I watched a segment of the news tonight on the border crisis. The ACLU has filed a suit to require the U.S. government to provide every illegal alien under 18 with a lawyer. The ACLU guy said that if they can get that done, no one will have to be sent back to their country because the U.S. won't be able to fund the process. He said that so far, of the 60,000 illegals who got into the country since Barack Hussein gave them the ok sign, 90 have been sent back .I don't see what he's worried about. The host of the show asked him why these people should get lawyers gratis, and he said "because they are children."
It's like throwing a penny in a pond, and watching the ripples flow outwards. This feel good idiot has no idea of the consequences of his intended actions. He should get with the churches in Minnesota that brought in Somalis and see how that good deed ended up.
Either we have laws, or we don't. It's not OK for Barack Hussein to decide to enforce the ones that support his agenda, and ignore the ones that don't. Yet that's exactly what he's doing.
He won't be President after his second term ends, but the damage the man is doing is going to be with us for a long time. Bill Clinton started the real rot, and nothing has been done to arrest it.
My guess is we'll have Hillary after Barack, and then we may as well all change our names to something Hispanic and jump on the band wagon. There won't be any place for old white guys in that world.
It will be like the gloating representative of NOW said in a news interview. The day of the old white guys is over.
In the Middle East the Israelis are fighting it out with Hamas. I hope they don't get drawn into Gaza, because even for a really good army, urban fighting is a great way to bleed to death. Better to just stand off and pummel them. Anybody who lets Hamas set up rockets in their front yard hasn't got any right to whine and cry about casualties that result.
I'm so glad that we are contributing funds to support the good people of Gaza. Of course, these are the same people who danced in the streets, and gave out sweeties and little cakes on 9-11, but hey, we can surely buy their friendship. I'm sure none of the money went to support their terrorist activities.
Hope nobody missed Longmire last night. The evil villain was a "Survivalist." He lived on his own land, in a log house way up in the mountains. Of course, he was reviled because he "doesn't trust the government." Among other good bits Longmire finds a census agent who went missing two years ago in the guys deep freezer. I swear, I felt like it was the good old days of the 1980's and 1990's again, where anybody who didn't live in an apartment and vote Democrat was liable to be dubbed "A Survivalist."
Oh, well. The world is full of things that aren't right. But at night, I can go out on the porch and none of that can reach me.
It's quiet and it's peaceful up here. Maybe some day things will get so bad that I'll get swept up in the turmoil. Maybe swept away. But for now, despite the way things are going overall, it's good here on the mountain top.
