It just makes no sense!

How often have we all heard that something the government does ‘just don’t make no sense?’

Folks look when the government says that, what they’re really saying is ‘the aforementioned policy is insane.’ You know bonkers, Luna-tunes or that person’s elevator is stuck in the basement. It’s time to follow another policy….

Local grocery store’s receipts unclear.

Forsyth MO. – Country Mart, a local grocery, is showing its age. After more than a decade in operation, the machines that kick out receipts are about ready to give up the ghost. Truth be told, you could have said that years ago and not be wrong.

Whoever is in charge of maintenance of this equipment should be reassigned.

I’m not being overtly critical, but give me a break. You be the judge.

Amazons Freevee ain’t so free!

This post is about Amazon’s ‘Freevee’, an app that allows one to view movies and TV replays for free, that is, as long as you watch various commercials that they sprinkle along the way.

On the surface, watching a few commercials seems like a good idea. But is it really?

Let’s look at an example – let’s say the movie ‘Lost’. A movie about survivors from a plane crash on an island. On the surface it is a great movie that I would encourage you to watch. That is if you can tolerate watching about a billion commercials…

SW Missouri’s first winter storm!

By my reckoning, this was the first winter storm of 2023! Here in my corner of southwest Missouri in a town called Forsyth, I was wondering if the population was ready for it? (For those with an interest my station it is at https://tempestwx.com/station/67063).

It’s been many a year since we’ve been saddled with more than a dusting of winter precipitation, and so it’ll be interesting to see how we all take it. For my part, I intend to stay indoors. Duh.

On Tuesday, January the 24th, the day of the temperature was in the mid 30’s under overcast skies. Winds were generally light and variable. As of 1:30 PM it was clear and OK. I will append notes as time goes on.

The snowfall began promptly at 6:00 PM. The temperature was 33.6 F. It began as a rain snow mix, but quickly changed over to all snow. And so begins the winter storm….

At the 10 PM hour we had accumulated about two inches with a thermometer reading of 32.5 F…

At 11 PM I measured 2 1/4 inches. Snowfall was steady. Temperature was 32.7.

And 2 1/4 was all she wrote for this storm, in Forsyth at least. It’s worth noting that some sites south such as Cedar Creek got five or more inches.

Biden and one lesson learned!

Joe Biden and the Democrats are learning (maybe) the lesson that says; ‘don’t crap where you eat!’

Efficiencies of the States vs the Federal government!

I’m not going into statistics here, but rather some common sense.

Anyone who has watched the growth of Federal Government for the past few decades can attest to witnessing the law of diminishing returns. We pump in literately trillions of tax dollars each year, only to see most of it vanish into a virtual bonfire of waste. Contrast that with the State Government witch carefully parses out the money they receive under to watchful eyes of it’s constituents.

And that’s not the worst of it! The Federal Government also has the ability to print money. Something it does with wild abandon. As a matter of fact, most if not all the money to pay for recent expenditures it money that is printed out of thin air. All that the money does is water down the worth of real money!

Stop the madness now. Abolish the Internal Tax Administration, cut down the sheer size of the Federal monster and redirect the money back to the People and to the States! Then watch our problems shrink overnight!

It’s January and here comes the GOP!

January the 4th, and here comes the GOP slipping in sideways into Congress where the promptly did a face plant in the House. To say they don’t have it together would be a total understatement. I sincerely do not understand their game plan.. By contrast the Democratic Party’s plan is well known; Universal hatred for the Constitution and the People who support it. What has the GOP got? Pure chaos? This Country cannot long be led by such buffoons.

Some lessons learned…

Going into 2023, there are some key lessons learned.

  1. Believe nothing a Democrat tells you.
  2. Believe nothing that the President says.
  3. Forget about anything corporations says.
  4. Forget about your government, the FBI or any thing to do with government. They all lie
  5. Listen only to your family, your heart and God.

Buckle down the hatches and pray for better times.


PS – Don’t buy any of the items advertised here! They’re phony!

Two questions…

I dreamt a man was standing before a crowd of thousands and he shouted out a question, “Who here believes in the Federal government?” A mighty roar gushed forth. After that slowly died down, he asked, “Who thinks the Federal government believes in you?” Dead silence followed…

On hearing that, I knew that the United States of America was dead.

Year two of four now gone by.

Can you believe we are two years into the four terms of Joe Biden? And what a two-year period it’s been! You name an area of our economy; Joe Biden and his Democratic has been there and wrecked that. And they did it while lying to the American people. He would have been arrested and shot in any other country, but here his record of slash and burn goes on unabated.

Now he’s entering the last two years of his office. But this period will see him as a lame duck President thanks to a majority of Republicans in the House. Thank God! His reign of uncontrolled spending is drawing to a close, but now before he racked up a thirty plus trillion-dollar debt, a debt future generations of kids will be saddled with… assuming there’s a country left after most of the rest of the world has moved on in.
