If things don’t improve and soon here in California, next year might be the year to retire abroad, maybe to Costa Rica or Belize

This should be a time of joy, my friends, seeing as how we are entering the Holiday Season. My family and I love Christmas, we love celebrating it, we love giving to others and doing for those who cannot do for themselves. This year, all of that is going to change my friends as we cannot even afford a Christmas tree. We can afford nothing, we are on the verge of putting our business up for sale but in these troubled and trying times, whatever price we end up receiving for it will be far too low.

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS THIRTY-ONE

Give municipal mayors an inch and the despots will take a mile…

Arvin, CA 93203, 12-04-2020 Friday:  On Tuesday, I mentioned the problems California is dealing with when it comes to a governor who behaves more like a dictator than as an elected official.  As a fellow Democrat, my family and I are dismayed with not only him but with various other mayors, county health departments, and county supervisors across our state all because their messaging is inconsistent, restrictions overwhelming, lockdowns more oppressive, and the common, ordinary, everyman-and-woman are gasping for breath.  The people who suffer the most are people who run restaurants, bars, movie theaters, and other facilities in which people gather together and enjoy one another’s company such as venues in which live music occurs.[i]  We are the ones who suffer the most and between state and federal avoidance of our plight, no one knows how much longer we will be able to survive unless relief should arrive and soon.   

The thing that hurts us the most is the hypocrisy, much of which I pointed to over the past three days when we were discussing the nominees for the upcoming Third Annual Lavrentiy Beria Award.  As you should have noticed, we had loads of governors and mayors on the list, more so than the previous two years combined.  Give these people an inch and they’ll take a mile and that seems to be where we have arrived: a time of despotism across the country.

The American people fully comprehend that we should use precautions so as not to become ill with the Chinese Virus.  However, it appears as time has passed, the disease has lessened in severity- if it ever was as bad as they claimed it to be- so why have things become more restrictive and not less? 

When we hear one knowledgeable person after another tell us that closing the schools was wrong as Dr. Tony Fauci recently did, then why aren’t they being reopened?  Schools across the country should be throwing the doors open and welcoming their students back and yet, we have heard nothing here in California that that is going to happen anytime soon. 

The question is WHY, especially when the people in charge are moaning that ‘all kinds of abuse is occurring in the homes, abuse that teachers are unable to see’ just as they whine about the kids not receiving three squares a day as well as how distance learning and isolation is harming the kids.  Why aren’t they reopening?

Instead, we have people making excuses, people like Mayor Garcetti, “I’m not responsible for this, the Los Angeles County Health Department is calling the shots.”  Yeah, right, but YOU, sir, are the mayor of the nation’s second largest city, are you just a figurehead in the employ of George Soros, the Chi-Coms, and other unseen, hidden hands or are you worthy of the title, ‘mayor of Los Angeles, California.’  If so, then act like it.

Up in the Bay Area, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara Counties are tightening things up to the point that their restrictions resemble those of Hawaii where lockdowns are severe, people in a deep state of funk, all because their livelihoods have been stripped from them and they are dependent upon the government for virtually everything.  This is not right nor should free people be forced to tolerate it.

This should be a time of joy, my friends, seeing as how we are entering the Holiday Season.  My family and I love Christmas, we love celebrating it, we love giving to others and doing for those who cannot do for themselves.  This year, all of that is going to change my friends as we cannot even afford a Christmas tree.  We can afford nothing, we are on the verge of putting our business up for sale but in these troubled and trying times, whatever price we end up receiving for it will be far too low.

Well, we are thinking about taking a trip down to Belize pretty soon to see what it’s like down there, Costa Rica, too.  While we do not have loads of cash, we have enough to retire on provided we move outside the country. 

By the time I am up in the cycle to write again in 2021, I should be able to share a report with you.  What I do know is that unless things change for the better and soon, there won’t be much point remaining here in California or in the U.S.  Thank you, Chi-Coms, thank you, Governor Gavin Newsom, and thank you, Democratic Party for all the years I devoted to you in exchange for hardly anything in return but loads of platitudes and the like.  You really know how to depress the spirits of your voters.[ii] 

Why?  

That will do it for today, my friends, we will pick back up tomorrow.

Posted @ the Friday, December 04, 2020 Blog Post:

On February 11, 2014, Savoy Brown released their next album, “Going to the Delta,” a classic album in which the band, now a three-piece consisting of Kim Simmonds on lead guitar/vocals/harmonica/keyboards, and Pat De Salvo (bass), Garnet Grimm (drums).  This band is one that has been with us for 50 years now, maybe another two-or-three years, which makes them worth hearing.  Guitarist Simmonds has never given up his touring, his playing, and should rank up there with Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Jeff Beck but sadly is forgotten by most chroniclers of rock music.  Well, most of the chroniclers are long since in the grave.  Ah, well, visit Amazon.com where you can get the album in the format, the condition, and the price that works best for you- you will be glad you did.

FOOTNOTES:


[i] Live music is problematic here in California yet in a city such as San Diego, where our friend and colleague Chef Pedro lives, one can visit a strip club because the sex workers (or in the case of strippers, ‘artists’) but you can’t visit a bar with live music much less go to a concert.  In some cities, we are prevented from attending church, from playing loud music, from singing, from doing most anything yet no one ever seems to tell the Muslims ‘you can’t go to mosque.’  Tell a Muslim something such as that and it’s ‘Allah Akbar” time.  Hypocrisy. 

[ii] We understand everyone is at risk- or are they- of getting ill with the Wuhan Virus.  The thing is, those who become ill typically are those in poor health, senior citizens and the vulnerable where everyone else is doing okay, can handle it, survive it, and move on.  If you drive by testing centers, you see lines of cars waiting in line so their occupants can get tests, tests that could show the presence of COVID-19 but not illness caused by COVID-19.  This jacks up the numbers which then allows government to increase the pressure atop us.  Something is not right in all this, something to which, I am unwilling to agree.  Many of my colleagues believe its purpose is to force socialism down our throats; while this could be true, at present, I won’t agree or disagree with the assumption.  Let me know what you think.
