Forest giants, rocky beach, treacherous currents-a trip to Deception Pass State Park

There are certain benefits of being retired, one of which is being able to take day trips on weekdays, when destinations may be less crowded.  One of the most popular photos on this blog has been a picture I took many years ago, from the Deception Pass Bridge, which connects Whidbey Island with the Washington …

Washington State, and its Dictator, Jay Inslee, lie to us Citizens about state being “reopened” June 30. Updated!

Dictator Inslee perfectly embodies my new favorite Covid-politics aphorism, which I coined. Absolute Power, once gained, is rarely yielded.  And today, I am adding a new corollary to that aphorism. The Left never yields Absolute Power, and they are the ones who seek it most. Here is a quote from a KOMO article today, demonstrating, …

The Washington State Health Nazis can go pound sand. This means YOU-Dr. Umair Shah, Dr. Jeff Duchin, and Dr. Ali Mokdad.

Once again, RB49 is vindicated.  The Health Nazis of Washington State are now in fear of the latest "new variant" of the Chinese Lab-created Wuhan Coronavirus, and they are prepping the state's sheeple for more rollbacks of opening for business.  They are predicting a "fifth wave", and getting ready to put us back in jail. …
