A new disincentive to work in the State of Washington

The "Nanny State" of Washington has enacted a new social program, paid for by all those who are employed in the state.  Employees will now have half of 1% of their wages withheld, starting in January, for a "long-term care" tax, which will not be active until three years later.  That benefit will be a …

Facebook: Taking Censorship to a new level

My readers will know that I have never used Facebook (or Twitter).  I hope that my readers are also fully aware of the censorship that Facebook actually announces to the public, so no one should be surprised to see them take it to the next level.  Around the 2020 election and after, they announced that …

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, …

Did you know that “gun control” was a part of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution?

Well, the President of the United States told us this week, that: "No amendment, no amendment to the Constitution is absolute," he said. "You can’t yell 'fire' in a crowded movie theater — recall a freedom of speech. From the very beginning, you couldn’t own any weapon you wanted to own. From the very beginning that the …

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. …

Seeing Red around our house today

This week, all the houses in our section of the complex are being repainted.  Homeowners can choose their preferred color, which is approved by the HOA board (our neighborhood is mostly detached homes with a few duplexes).  Here's what our house looked like yesterday, after the painters had been here doing prep work.

Why many teenage girls today do not want to be girls: “transgender” edition

A Ricochet friend did a post about "saving our children" from the malign "transgender movement".  She mentioned the fact that today, many teenage girls don't like being girls, and maybe that sentiment could explain the popularity of the "transgender" movement. [scare-quotes used to indicate the falsity of transgenderism]  I took it a step further, and …
