The world we live in

Walking through the living room last night, I shot this.

A poll indicates that about 30 percent of Democrats think the U.S. presidential election was stolen. About 90 percent of Republicans concur. Why it’s not 100 percent is baffling. That other 10 percent must be those people we call RINOs.

Or maybe it’s just proof that a portion of any group are nincompoops.

That almost a third of Democrats are clear-headed is heartening. I wonder why they think that. I wonder where they get their news, clearly not CNN, The Washington Post or The New York Times, those running-dog lackeys of the DNC.

Speaking of running-dog lackeys, YouTube is now inserting a claim at the bottom of videos questioning the election results that The Associated Press has declared Sleepy Joe and Round-Heels Harris to be the winners, as if the news media make that call.

Never have, never will.

The Fat Lady has yet to sing, but she will in time, and we Trumpsters hope she croons a positive tune, putting the five-time Nobel Peace Prize nominee back into the Oval Office. I remain guardedly optimistic. You would hardly know about the legal cases currently in the pipeline if your news sources are the above-named running-dog lackeys.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a brilliant man, says it’s the first U.S. presidential theft since the White House was stolen from Andrew Jackson in 1824. I looked into that, but the system was very different in those days. It does appear that Jackson was blocked due to political hanky-panky. He went on to win, however, four years later.

Now where is that Fat Lady? Warming up stage-right?

Rudy Giuliani is still scribbling the opera.

With luck, it’ll be a blockbuster.

A moonlight morning

A sharp observer will spot the moon hanging in our morning sky. The photo was taken at 9:30 and, as you can see, it’s a lovely day, blue and cool.

Anticipating that the rains have ended this year, I’ve raised two of the three canvas curtains on the upstairs terraza, which now provides a far better view of the mountains.

Here at the Hacienda, we’re trying to keep calm with the belief that the Blond Bomber is dealing effectively with the Democrat electoral fraud above the Rio Bravo.

First, they refuse to accept the 2016 election results, shriek through four years of nonstop hysterics and dead-end attempts to remove Trump from the office he won fair and square, and now they’re trying to subvert democracy entirely.

My previous post predicted the Democrats would steal the election. They surely cannot win honestly, so theft was the only option. I should have qualified my prediction, however. Instead of saying they would steal it, I should have added “or try to.”

They may yet pull it off, but they possibly have underestimated Trump. Stay tuned.

And stay optimistic.

Votes, death, spiders, mail & flu

I sent my vote for the Blond Bomber toward Houston on October 1, registered mail, figuring it would have plenty of time. This was assuming registered mail here moves at least a bit faster than unregistered mail, a dicey assumption.

It arrived at the Mexico City airport 27 days later. I could have driven there in five hours, give or take. Registered and express mail from here can be tracked on the Mexican postal system’s website, and then it can be tracked on the USPS website using the same number.

It has been visible on the USPS website for a couple of days, so I’m assuming it made it over the Rio Bravo, but there is no further info. I have found the Mexican tracking system better than the USPS. Once I sent a Social Security form, registered mail, and it crossed the border and vanished. Yes, the Gringos lost it.


The Honda was in the shop this week due to a suspension problem. I got it back yesterday and immediately noticed one tire was very low on air, so I drove a couple of blocks today to my tire-repair man who found the leak and fixed it on the spot for $2.50 U.S.


The Night/Day of the Dead arrives Sunday. Both state and city governments have tried to discourage it due to the Kung Flu, so I suspect we’ll see fewer tourists jamming our highways and streets. How much fewer is questionable.


We’re considering a trip to the beach, Zihuatanejo, soon where we have not been in about three years. Probably be a good time due to more folks staying home. Our favorite hotel is the Casa Sun & Moon. We always get a big suite facing the ocean.

It’s time to stop talking about going and actually go.


And she came screaming!

Well, not screaming, but my child bride ran rapid and distressed. There was a big, black spider in the bathtub. I won’t say he was as big as my fist, but he was huge, the second big spider here in the last three days. I trapped him, escorted him to the yard where I smashed him flat. She said it was a brown recluse, but it wasn’t. It did look scary though.


We get a flu shot every October at the Star Medica hospital in the nearby state capital. Alas, the vaccine has yet to arrive there. Next week, we’re always told on the phone. Next week! It costs 800 pesos each at Star Medica, but it’s available free here on the mountaintop at a government clinic. I’ve only gone to a government clinic for a vaccine once, and I received the wrong vaccine. I now look askance at government clinics.

Socialized, government medical care!

But that may be where we get it this year.


The high point of today is that my child bride made a huge pot of green pozole, and no one does it better than her. We’ll enjoy that for lunch, then head down to the government clinic to see if the flu shot is available and, even more important, if there’s a line to stand in. If so, we’ll just keep on trucking. Life’s too short to stand in lines.

Might not get the correct vaccine anyway.


Vaccine update! We went to the government hospital and got the vaccine quicker than we’ve ever done it at Star Medica, and it was free, closer to being actually free than the stuff the leftists promise you above the Rio Bravo. (That free means your neighbors are paying for it.) There was no wait. We were told there’s a shortage of shots, and only certain people get it. Being over 60 did it for us.

By the way, what’s up with the anti-vaccine hysteria? Appears to be something embraced by conservatives more than anyone. I don’t get it. I like vaccines.

Cartoon break!

The first is an actual photo taken of President Trump on Monday as he headed back to the White House. I am not making this up.

This cartoon reflects what is happening at Fox News. I am not making this up either. It amuses me when I still see people dissing Fox for being a right-wing news source. There are many commentators there who remain reliably conservative, but the trend is going in the other direction in the news department. Sad.

Why? Ownership changed some while back.
