Is Sound Transit’s Link Light Rail a rolling drug den or a rolling homeless shelter?

Sound Transit is the Western Washington “light rail” project, for which people in a large area of the Puget Sound (much of it out of reach of the choo-choo train for decades) pay a property tax, a sales tax, and a car-registration tax every year.  The first leg of the train ran from downtown Seattle …

The biggest reason to reject both electric cars, and a “cashless” society

Think about it. What obvious characteristic do both electric cars and a "cashless" society (payments only allowed in digital format) possess? Here's another question. Who provides the electricity you use to power your home appliances, heating and air-conditioning, and all your electronics? Think about that, and it will lead you to the answer to my …

Communist Chinese Dictator Xi Jinping is in grave danger

If you have been following the news lately, you might be aware of the dire news out of mainland China, and its most vital city, Shanghai.  Since early 2020, the Communist Chinese have had a "Zero Covid" policy on the mainland and in Hong Kong.  This policy involves attempts to stamp out any outbreak of …

Dispatch from the Seattle (area) Cesspit

And in other news, the War Zone Cesspit of Seattle/Tacoma continues to produce tales of woe, mostly caused by the political policies of the Far Left who run most cities around here.  They have favored criminals over victims, homeless over taxpaying citizens, and teachers unions over parents for decades.  Here is what those policies have …

Unintended (?) consequences of the Left’s environmental movement

The Leftists of the world think that humans are destroying the planet.  They firmly believe that human-generated "greenhouse gases" have been causing the climate to get warmer for decades, and they believe that, unless the world essentially ceases to emit such gases from activities such as driving cars and trucks fueled by gasoline, and heating …

A big Thank You to the Social Security Administration

I have to hand it to the US Social Security Administration.  First, here's a little background.  In 2020, I took a voluntary separation agreement from my 12-year job (rather than just getting laid off, which would have been the alternative), due to the government CCP-Virus response tanking the aerospace industry. A part of that package …

How the mighty have fallen. Rogue cruise ships?

Hubby and I have been on two cruises, on the luxury line Crystal Cruises.  Both were Hillsdale College cruises, one to Alaska and one to Hawaii.  The fact that both cruises left from the West Coast was a deciding factor.  We took the Crystal Serenity to Alaska in 2016, and the Crystal Symphony to Hawaii …

[Better late than never] Last Saturday’s Wall Street Journal had the biggest bunch of crap I have ever seen in one issue.

Last week's Weekend Edition of the Wall Street Journal had a number of articles that I just could not believe.  See if you don't agree that they all add up a big pile of excrement. Starting in the Review section, the cover story was about "The Once and Future Drug War", by James Marson, Julie …

What is this world coming to? This weekend’s horror stories.

If you thought Western Civilization was crumbling before your eyes, you might be right.  Aside from all the crime, homelessness, shortages, skyrocketing food and fuel prices that affect us all, two stories this weekend will confirm it. The first story has to do with the "vaccine mandates" being forced on citizens by various governments, both …

How’s this for “you take the risk, we reap the rewards”?

Some companies are offering incentives for their employees to take the experimental CCP Virus vaccine booster shots.  Many companies already have vaccine mandates for their office and factory workers, and some have lost employees who quit rather than be vaccinated.  One company I read about today is offering a very peculiar "incentive" for their employees …
