Daily blog: It’s February 18th, 2021, and our elected officials—wait, scratch that—our bought and paid for representatives who gave themselves a $45,000 raise in the last stimulus bill are at it again with a long list of things they want before they even consider throwing bread crumbs your way.
These people are no better than the ones who loot after a natural disaster.

The sides clashed; they could not agree. “Silence those peasants,” yelled the Queen. “Which ones?” asked the henchman. “The conservatives. The others have already been silenced; their voice is ours. Pawns waiting for the next move.”
Wow! What a day, I was unable to upload videos due to congestion. But I will get them up as soon as possible. I just got back to the campground.
The Rally went well for most of the day but soon took a turn when protesters marched to the Capital. Most people have left, leaving the ones you see on the news tonight.
Update: 1/7/21 – This video documents the January 6th, 2021 March on Washington from the Lincoln Memorial to the Capitol Building. The event was full of peaceful protestors, but the news only focused on the rioters. Rioters and looters have been silencing the voice of peaceful protestors all year long.

Do you go to work and risk getting sick, or do you stay home and risk losing your house because you can’t pay the bills?
This is the balancing act that every person will face if Covid-19 continues to spread.
I think people will choose to go to work. So how do we eliminate the threat without throwing the baby out with the bathwater?
Now, for those that may not know, “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater” is an idiomatic expression for an avoidable error in which something good is eliminated when trying to get rid of something bad.

One by one, America’s great cities are falling due to a years-long volcanic winter, and the tourist town of Beech Mountain, NC, is no different. Its citizens, now desperate and fearful, are divided. Gone are the days when you could walk into a grocery store to buy what you need; money is useless. Food is the only thing of value, and it’s not for sale; people who have it intend to keep it, and those that don’t intend to take it away. It’s the only thing people think about anymore. To not have it is to die.
