Climate change, rain & Trump

skull pot
Pot I bought a few years ago during the Day of the Dead.

THIS “CLIMATE CHANGE” thing has hit us hard, or maybe the rainy season is simply arriving a tad tardy this year. Whatever.

It did rain yesterday, and today dawned overcast and cool, which is how I like it. The grass is showing signs of revitalization, from dreary brown to joyous green. Abel the Deadpan Yardman will come tomorrow for the first cut of the year.

Life on the mountaintop continues, often in a crackpot manner. Though the Kung Flu problem shows no sign of winding down — quite the contrary — our megalomaniac president refers to it in the past tense. Our mayor has opened both downtown plazas for the first time in a couple of months. He’s also encouraging tourists to return.

And our Kung Flu count continues upward.

Meanwhile, I’m looking forward to seeing what happens tomorrow with the YUGE Trump campaign event in Oklahoma. Thousands want to go, of course, because we love him. I wish I could go. But it seems trouble is brewing. And rumors.

Here’s my prediction. Leftists will appear en masse in MAGA caps, waving Nazi flags and goose-stepping, a disinformation campaign. I doubt they will riot or loot because Oklahoma cops will not be on their side, and the governor is Republican.

It’s good to be out of the fray and atop a mountain in the middle of Mexico.

    1. Leisa: so they predicted in the wake of the protests/riots. But fortunately not. Of course, the Tulsa event is technically indoors. But the space is so large, I wonder whether it will really matter. No wind, of course, but plenty of air. I’m very curious to see what happens. But given the attendance is only 7,000 folks, more or less, even if it is something of a spreading event, it might be too small to be noticed.

  1. That is a cool pot. Oklahoma is not Seattle or Portland. I have a feeling the leftist mob will stay away.

    1. Thirsty: It is a cool pot indeed. One of my favorites.

      As for the leftist/Democrat mobs staying away, you may be giving them more credit for common sense than they possess.

  2. There will be lots of Kung Flu cases for the next year. It will run its course, so get over it. The testing keeps getting raised. Every time the recommended numbers are reached, the recommendation goes up. You have to keep the fear-mongering numbers up. Hospital admissions give a better look at where the flu is.

    The National Guard will also be at the rally to back up law enforcement, so there shouldn’t be much trouble unless you want a lump on the head to remember the first of many more rallies to come.

    1. Kirk: One of the Kung Flu hysteria issues from the U.S. that I find most amusing is that those widespread predictions of hospital overcrowding pretty much never took place. Remember that hospital ship Trump sent to New York? Empty. The military field hospitals? Empty. The predictions of up to 2 million people dying? Didn’t happen, not even a little bit close.

  3. Recent holiday crowds have contributed to spikes here in River City. The local officials remind us daily of our obligation to wear a mask when going out. In our county mask wearing is now mandated.

    1. Carole: Our governor and mayor have “mandated” things over the past couple of months too. But, being Mexicans, we just ignore the mandates and, being Mexicans too, the governor and mayor do nothing. We live in peace.

  4. In our county (home of about 1/3 of the state’s population) masks are mandatory and, to my amazement, compliance is near 100%. Our daily rate of new infections is about 2 per 100,000. Next door in Arizona, masks are not required, and news reports are that most people don’t wear them. Yesterday the daily rate in Maricopa County (home to about 1/2 of Arizonans) was 45 per 100,000. Draw your own conclusions.

    1. Creigh: Maybe they do more thorough record-keeping in Arizona! Maybe there is some odd characteristic of Arizona air. Maybe it’s the fact that New Mexico’s governor is Democrat, and Arizona’s is Republican. Lord knows, the possibilities.

  5. Even the Spanish Flu ended. It took two years without the advantages of today’s technology. This virus is worse, however, because of the media. Six months in prison certainly seems longer than a year on vacation.

    1. Nomad: The Kung Flu thing now swims in a deep sea of confusion. There are health aspects to it, of course. And there are rampant political aspects also. I suspect that after Trump is re-elected in November, both the health and political aspects will be things of the past. Hopefully, we’ll then be able to get back to some semblance of normal life.

      1. We shall see. Please don’t take Trump’s reelection for granted. Currently, the polling numbers for him are very bad. Yes, there could well be tons of “shy supporters” who lie to pollsters. But the Left is fired up, and Trump isn’t doing himself any favors these days, the latest example being today where he said he wasn’t kidding about wanting to do fewer tests. I still think he was kidding, but we are living with a press which considers an obvious meme to be a “doctored video,” that needs to be explained as a joke to their dimwit audiences.
