Kyle Rittenhouse. A hero or a villian?

The evening of Tuesday, August 25 in Kenosha Wisconsin proved to be a political game changer for many. Kyle Rittenhouse, emerged on that stage, in the most dramatic way possible. He capped two and wounded two more, using an AK rifle that fired .223 ammunition. At that moment in time, a Civil War started brewing in earnest.... Now, as time marches on, more and more will be disclosed; about the who, when, where and what actually happened - But, the sure bet right now is that the Left has been reeling backwards on the news of real vigilantism breaking out on the streets they formerly controlled. (Yes, the thugs, BLM and Antifa have been served notice. If you riot, be prepared to die).

The next day, the formal court charging papers detailed six counts that if proven would place the defendant in prison for the rest of his life. And make no mistake, it didn't matter that the two killed were low life's, under the view of the 'law', Kyle was guilty until proven innocent. And even if he beats the rap by proving he was fighting for his life (which he was), you can bet a dollar to a doughnut that the leftist mass media was going to have a field day.

In my view, Kyle is not the real news. If he'd been killed by the mob, it would have been a mere journalistic footnote. The fact that he fought back against a murderous mob of street thugs... Well, that was straight out of a Charles Bronson movie! And, this sort of action will be sure to energize patriots and the militias all across  the continent.

Meanwhile the Democratic Party was also watching, in despair, as Joe Biden's pole numbers plummeted fast that a cleaving iceberg. And, way too late in the game, they began bleating about how bad their kids were acting. Sorry. Too little too late. The kids that were out trying to destroy our Republic had been trained for over 30 years by Liberals planted by the Democratic Party in schools and universities all over the continent! And now, in 2020, they were reaping very bitter fruit indeed.

So, let's all stay tuned to Kyle's pending trial, and the increased violence on our streets, as We the People begin to start firing back!

Time for some of us to get back to normal!

While I'm sure that health officials in NYC and parts of California are stacking Covid-19 victims up in the streets like cord wood, that's just not the case in much of the rest of the United States.

In Taney County, Missouri where I live, there just hasn't been much of a problem with Covid-19. That's if you even believe the 'stats' that are put out. The John Hopkins University, for instance, cites just three dead out of a population of 56K. The Taney County Board of Health, on the other hand, has the county at 16 deaths. Hmm. That's quite a disparity. The differences could be due to the way that various health centers list the cause of death. This is something that I've actually never seen brought up anywhere. Typically, most Covid-19 deaths, in the US, happen in a hospital setting with the attending physician listing the final 'problem' that caused the patient to expire. On the death certificate, there are a number of lines that document other comorbidities or diseases that contributed to the top listed item. So, while a person might have died as a complication caused by the Covid-19 virus, there are often others that lent a helping hand; diabetes, obesity, heart disease and the like. The bottom line is that Covid-19 is really just another risk factor that people already at risk must cope with. For the healthy and especially for the young, the entire mess that's been the Nation's reaction to this disease has been greatly overblown, in my opinion.

Living your everyday life is a risk assessment situation, from the time you arise, to the time you go to sleep later in any given day. The true risks each person faces is dependent on a host of temporal, geographical and career based choices. Obviously, a twenty year old working in Wyoming in an office enjoys a lot less risk, then say a 58 year old working at construction in the heart of a large city! Either way there always is some rick of dying for each of us, all day and every day... Some have more and some less.

That's been the way of the world for millennia. That is, until just recently with the advent of mass communication via the mass media. Just as soon as a politician got the idea of using a crisis for political gain, the real games were on! That's precisely what we are seeing with this viral non-event event. Had no one been told to be afraid, we likely would have gone on and paid little to no attention. That's what happened in other countries that decided it wasn't a big deal. Sweden did just fine and without a lock down! I'm betting we could have done the same just by employing social distancing and making sure to wash our hands. These are both good practices, even in a year with low disease rates.

What pandemic? All I'm seeing is control!

While I'm sure that many are dying of the Covid-19 virus, I'm not so sure that the significance of this disease hasn't been blown way out of proportion!

Note that the chart above is from March 2020. (There are none I could find that were closer to August. Perhaps it's beyond the abilities of health organizations to track and report...)  But, assuming things are progressing pretty much along the same lines... One can see that, in the pecking order of all things nasty, the Covid-19 virus ain't all that much.

So, why all the hype? Why the social distancing, hand washing and mask wearing going on seven months? The best I can determine is that this little virus dude became a weaponized political football early in the game! The Democrats, in particular, realized that they could play the mail-in voter fraud thing to a much larger degree than what would have been possible before people were scared shitless of leaving their homes. (When you can keep a populace afraid, you can control that group to a great extent). Ergo, the Left leaning mass media continues to spread fear while some useful idiot groups are merrily burning cities, for good measure. But, could this effort totally backfire on Biden come November?

Even now, some of the more moderate Democratic leaders are sounding the alarm that things ain't quite right at the old DNC as far as pole number are going. It turns out that many moderate Democrats and fence riders are just as appalled at the extreme Left's actions, as the rest of the Conservatives all across the Nation! (It seems that when someone burns down a business, that it's taken a Democratic family a lifetime to build, well let's say they're not very happy campers).

Couple this spreading unhappiness, while thugs like the BLM and Antifa are bashing in grannie's head... While, coping with a lackluster candidate in Joe Biden... While witnessing historic increases in the stock market and lots of Democrats may be taking a hard right at the worst possible time!

A scrambled egg kind of day!

Scrambled eggs with bacon and milk was what was on tap for a cloudy Thursday in August. Even as I had reached a good weight for my age and height, I remained a bit conservative when it came to food.

The nutritional side of the meal came in at 380 calories with protein at 26 grams and the carbs at a mere 5! This meal tastes great while also being a low carb - high protein dieters dream!

A hot dog on a bun instead of a steak?

One day, through no fault of your own, you find yourself on a low or fixed income. All of a sudden, you find yourself with less coming in and more going out! Suddenly, you've become a person on a budget with food topping the list of must have categories.

That has been my circumstance, for some time. And, when it comes to grocery shopping, I've become smarter than I used to be! I've given up high priced items such as steak for much less expensive hot dogs and such. In a recent post on Forsythbiz, I displayed the results of my often eaten foods in the form of a report. At a cost of a little over a twenty dollar bill, I got a lot of good stuff. Perhaps that's why that store is called Save A Lot (duh).

Area Save A Lot has much to offer!

Forsyth MO. -  One of the two main grocery stores, located at 142 Main St, in Forsyth, MO,has a lot to offer... in the way of savings! I decided to shop this store mainly due to the fact that I wasn't going to get a lot of angry stares from other customers as I choose to not wear a mask. To my great surprise, the cost of food I like to eat was much lower than the other store! Below is an example, of the cost of some goods on this date. I will definitely be shopping there more often!

And so, the stampede begins!

As Democratic run cities continued to burn while rioters loot and hurt citizens, tens of thousands were fleeing cities in search of 'better and safer' conditions. Some Mayors of liberal nests seemed unfazed. (See the article where Mayor De Blasio even told his NYC citizens, basically good riddance). The question in the minds of many is, 'just how many millions would become displaced into small towns that could ill afford to take care of them'?

While my small town in southwest MO., had not yet been highly impacted, I feel that it was only a question of time before individuals began to arrive from bankrupt and 'war torn' locations to try and settle into our area where they would might not really be welcome. The virus, which has devastated much of America, has often rendered jobs a very scarce commodity. 

I would hope that ultra liberal states, like Michigan and Oregon, would open their arms wide to receive the tens of thousands of members of groups like antifa, BLM and other communist revolutionaries, while leaving the heartland of America pretty much alone. After all, Michigan, isn't that the Progressive thing to do?

Social distancing and face masks!

 Ever since the advent of the scourge, aka the copronavirus virus from China, the world has gone into a head spin after getting charged up by a hyper media blitz. And. today in August 2020, people all over are dressing up like play surgeons appearing on TV. Everything from face masks, goggles, shields and even disposable gloves are de rigor. And is all this based on real science? Well, partially, but like so much else coming from politically charged outlets like CNN, there is also quite a bit of hype. So, here are a few opinions from this individual;

1) While the virus from Wuhan China is exceptionally contagious, it is also not very severe. At least, not to individuals are in good health and under the ago of 70. If you happen to be older and also suffer from any of the big three; diabetes, obesity or heart related disease, then I would encourage those individuals to practice PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) no matter where they mighty live in the US. Getting sick, for that group of citizens, could prove fatal.

2) Excepting those restraints in #1, I would encourage younger and healthy individuals to perform a risk assessment as to where they live in the United States. Hanging out in NYC, for instance, would require as much social distancing and PPE as you could afford. Those in Wyoming, however were virtually no infections are seen so pretty much carry on as usual. You can visit the John Hopkins University site to get a quick overview of the hot spots right down to the County level.

3) Cold spots, like Taney County Mo., do not pose much of a threat as having 5 deaths over seven months is simply statistically insignificant. And there's even a positive if you do catch the bug and recover. You will very likely be immune for some years to that variety of coronavirus and as you wander about will create a human barrier between the virus and those susceptible to catching it. It's what is known as herd immunity.

So, that's it. Check out where you live. Take the acceptable actions you feel will work, and then live your life. Whatever you do, however, don't allow a group of politically left-leaning individuals in the media or in government to try and frighten you into mindless obedience. For instance, while I was shopping at a local grocery store this day, it was easy to notice the reactions of mask wearing individuals who either looked at me in a disapproving fashion or who attempted to quickly distance themselves from me. That wasn't science IO was watching, that was raw fear. Fear put into their minds by cold-hearted left wing nut jobs who likely couldn't even spell the word science.

Dems pull out all the stops!

As we turn the corner going in to the last few month before the Nov 3rd election cycle. Attempts by the Left to railroad the results were swinging into high gear!

Voter fraud via mail in ballots, is currently showing up in many key swing states. This non partisan effort to employ easily corrupted mail-in ballots, was a key part of the Democrats corrupt strategy to try and steal the 2020 election. Early on, in 2020, it was apparent that the Left was going to milk the Covid-19 virus for all it was worth. (After all, a key concept of that Party is to never waste a crisis).

In connection to the virus, the Democrats have employed the time tested method of dragging their feet whenever and where ever possible. As a result, I feel that they have been instrumental in the deaths to tens of thousands who might otherwise have survived.

For his part, candidate Joe Biden is staying out of the public eye as much as possible. (Even the few brief televised appearances made it very plain that Joe is suffering from rapidly progressing dementia). And Joe, you will remember, was the best candidate out of a very large group of Presidential contenders early on, in the selection process... At least he was the only one that wasn't calling for an outright switch to full socialism. (A concept he is now fully endorsing along with gun confiscation, open borders and more extreme ideas).

To add to a feeling of an episode of living in the Twilight Zone, the mass media seems to be on a mission to erase history, twist everything the Right puts out and to outright lie at every turn if events do not fit their skewed narratives.

Caught in the middle of everything, are good and decent Democrats and Republicans, who are literately watching their cities burn. Those who endorse antifa and BLM are traitors, in my view. We seem to have allowed a very corrupt and evil group of individuals to divide us for ever more.

This is not what the media wants to show!

While the people who are uneducated concerning viral outbreaks worry over the increased number of new cases (due to increased testing and media coverage), those in the know only watch the rate of new deaths! That number, be it rising or falling, is the true indicator of how the disease is progressing.

Above is a graph through May 30 (the latest compiled figures) that shows the rapid rates for death and then the equally dramatic drop in the rate of death, in the US, from combined loses due to influenza, pneumonia and Covid-19. Note that even back in May of 2020, the rate of death was approach the normal baseline. This is information that the fake media does not want to get out!
