Sign of our times

Public servant, Portland-style!

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and I thought of that immediately on seeing this photo. By the way, that’s a woman, not a man. She is a city commissioner in the socialist outpost known as Portland, Oregon, and as such she’s no fan of the police and has voted to reduce police funding.

But in spite of her voting and rhetoric, what is the first thing she did on November 1 when she had a dispute with a Lyft driver?

That is correct. She called the cops.

Just gazing upon the visage of this gal whose name is Jo Ann Hardesty, by the way, tells you immediately that she voted against President Trump. Yes, you can make accurate judgments based on appearances, and this is where the adoration of victimhood and multiculturalism has brought us. Well, you, not me because I do not live in the United States.

You likely do, poor thing. My heart goes out to you.

How opinions do change

AS WE BLAST further in the presidential campaign season, you’ll be seeing more conservative, political stuff hereabouts. If it’s too much for your sensibilities, I offer these three alternatives for blog posts about life south of the Rio Bravo.

One is Steve Cotton who lives occasionally on the sweltering Pacific coast at Barra de Navidad. You’ll get your doses of Mexican parades, sunsets, food and bugs.

Two is Babs, an old lady who lives in the Gringo-infested burg of San Miguel de Allende. There you’ll get lots of news and photos of her grandchildren because old ladies do that, but she offers fun stuff about Mexico too. You will encounter Trump Derangement Syndrome on occasion, however.

Last but hardly least is Al Lanier who lives outside San Miguel. His blog is very good but, once again, you’ll encounter Trump Derangement Syndrome at times. Al, like me, is a former newspaperman. He’s also a refugee from communist Cuba who now supports the Left in the United States. Latinos can be contradictory and amusing, eh?

As for The Moon, we’ll be back to normal after November 3. That’s not to say that we’re going completely political till then, but there will be plenty of politics due to the hilarious lineup of Democrat hopefuls and the endless fun of the Blond Bomber.

The hole is too deep and full of gold not to mine it.

The top video illustrates beautifully the hypocrisy of leading Democrats over the years on the issue of border control. Then they liked it, now they don’t.

Below is a great take on Democrat candidate Mayor Pete. That vlog is run by a house painter who lives in a mobile home he calls the Hobo Dojo in the Los Angeles cesspool.

It’s his, I believe, second appearance here. Let’s give him a hand!
