And we see that defiance works:

So the City of Chicago blinked….

“No officers will be sent home regardless of “Vaccine” status.

They realize that they need the cops more than the cops need them. Faced with at least half of their force being unable to work due to the new rules, the Chicago Administration (Lightfoot) backed down.

Win.

This oughta be interesting…..

Seems that less than half of the Chicago Police officers have taken the “Vaccine” and their deadline is tomorrow.

 

The FOP has said that officers should show up for duty and force their superiors to send them home.

It is expected that if the City of Chicago enforces the “Mandate” that there will be less than half the normal number of police officers on duty this weekend.

I feel for the folks on the South and West sides, and all the other neighborhoods where only the Police are keeping the crime away.

I expect the City to blink, but we shall see.

 

’tis interesting

How some people who have no knowledge pontificate on how the vaccines work, or the new Meck Covid pill work, or how Ivermectin doesn’t.

When it becomes obvious that they are unsure how RNA works, or how mRNA works, much less how the Merck drug damages the duplication in RNA…Or that they have even looked beyond the headlines when it comes to the data on our current treatments…

I am pretty sure that they never had biology much past high school, and that their main source of data is Wikipedia and Slate….And the New York Times and CBSNBCABC

It shows when they try to explain how Ivermectin is useless and dangerous for humans and such, and how the Covid mRNA stuff is safe….And an untested Cytosine analogue will not damage the RNA of anything but the Covid virus….Or even how such treatments work (or don’t).

I find it interesting that they claim that Ivermectin is untested and unsafe, but fail to realize that it has been around (and used on humans) since the early 80’s….but it is an unsafe “HorsePaste” because that is it’s main use here in the United States (but is used extensively by humans throughout the rest of the world)….but they are willing to take a treatment that has had very little testing and whose rate of side effects (and death) would make any other “Vaccine” be pulled from the market (look up the Swine Flu vaccine for an example)….. and all this for a disease with a 99+% rate of survival.

These people have bought into the fear, and see the government-approved pharmaceuticals as their savior…their belief is much like the folks who say we Must Do Something about Global Warming even though the data is crap and the temperature measurements simply don’t bear the “warming” hypothesis out…..and yet don’t want to live the lifestyle they preach for others….I wonder if the Venn diagrams for those folks overlap a lot?

 

Reality strikes them in the face

And, like a good right cross, it hurts when it hits.

Oil, gas and energy prices surge across europe and asia as governments and utilities realize that “Green” sources of energy just ain’t gonna keep them warm this winter….

Whoda thunk it? Unreliable and intermittent supplies of electricity might just need some kind of other supply to replace them when it is cloudy or not windy (or both)….

And when everyone shuts down the alternative sources of electricity you cannot import electricity from you neighbor….cause they have none to spare.

When Wind and Solar don’t get it, yer left with the old standby….dead dinosaurs….(’cause coal is Right Out)…oil or natural gas is the only way to supply large amounts of electricity (and heat) when those “renewables” fail…Such as wind and solar are wont to do.

If you can’t control it, you can’t rely on it.

Would Y’all do me a favor?

I keep getting spammed by a company. And while I have called them, and emailed them, and asked them to stop, they won’t. They are a real company here in the US, and they have poor marketing techniques. Help me get that message to them, if you would…

I get no less than 25 spam comments from them every day. Sometimes as many as 200.

If you comment on my posts, realize that I have to filter your comments out of a hundred (sometimes more) spam comments two or three times a day. I get lots of random spams, but this one company keeps coming and I can identify them, and they won’t stop when asked.

Any help is appreciated.

 

The Global Warming folks don’t like this:

It would seem that the Great Barrier Reef in Australia is experiencing “Record Levels” of coral growth.

Odd, that, since the climate folks are telling us that the decline in the reef is a sign of the overall destruction mankind has perpetrated on the earth and is caused by higher temperatures caused by CO2….

Except none of that is true.

The reef, oddly enough, is growing madly.

But despite the media telling us for YEARS that the reef was slowly dying, they aren’t telling us that it is recovering, and has been for several years.

Almost like the are trying to push an agenda or something.

I fully expect riots

Seeing as how a BLACK police officer shot a young white woman….as she fled.

I mean, were the races reversed, we’d see riots, burning and looting and lots of other property destruction, right? If it was a white cop and a black person then that sort of behavior would be acceptable….And the Media would fan the flames.

 

Yet here we have a black officer who shot a white girl…and there is no media hype, no protests in the streets, no jumping to conclusions, no assumption of anything…white people are not rioting in the streets, not fighting cops, not burning entire neighborhoods. (and the video makes it look like a bad shoot, but we don’t have all the details)

Note: I am not jumping to conclusions here, I don’t know what happened before the video clip starts, and I don’t know all the details: perhaps the cop had a good reason for the shooting……But neither did we have any of the details of the other shootings of back people by white cops that were sensationalized by the media just before the election that led to those BLM riots and such…..

I think that whites should riot in the streets over this like the black people did over the shootings of those criminals in 2019 and 2020. But we won’t.

And yet the government sees nothing wrong here

11 million job openings, yet the economy only was able to gain a few hundred thousand jobs….

This tells us that either the aid packages are too large (or are no longer needed at all) or that the people applying for those jobs (if they are applying, that is) are ineligible for those jobs….in other words there are not enough skilled people….Welders and carpenters heavy equipment operators and machinists and such all need training….and, of course, for many people, a blood or hair test for drugs will show them ineligible for skilled employment. (we won’t talk about the idiocy of the “mandate” that does not really legally exist)

And at the other end, the “unskilled” jobs market, the federal and state handouts make working at those jobs illogical, when one can do nothing and make the equivalent of $15 or more just in handouts.

 

There is something wrong with a government system that encourages people not to work.
