Umbrage Button Pushed.


 Conspiracy Nut

Among other duties, Colorado County Clerk and Recorders conduct elections. While this particular one may be a taco short of a combination plate, her duty was to insure an honest election. Her method displeased the (P)regressive cabal and they have MADE AN EXAMPLE of her as an example for the other sixty three County Clerk and Recorders in the state. She hasn’t gone quietly into the night.


As per American Media Maggot s.o.p., we find “false conspiracy theories” early in the article.


Colorado Special Legislative Session

As expected, another (P)regressive assault on TABOR. Chaos, i.e. SNAFU.


Not to be outdone, the RINOs chime in. 


UPDATE. Seems something got passed. Republicans voted nay, (P)regressives aye, and the mess will soon be on Emperor Polis’ desk to be signed.

Money to be made? China to be pissed off?

The country has ample deposits of rare earths, lithium, cobalt and petroleum. Developing the resources is a political problem. Maybe a part answer to the problem is here.


So, as usual, WSF goes contrary. The ‘tree hugger’ environmentalist’s crowds are not without a valid point of view. Tour the Colorado Gold Belt areas some summer and see the huge amounts of waste left behind when the mines played out. See the sludge oozing out and contaminating watersheds. Travel any old oil fields, big or small, anywhere in the country and see old wells abandoned but still leaking methane. As a species we are terrible polluters.

So glad to be retired from retail vehicle sales

Seems dealer inventories are high and sales slow. Dealerships are cash flow machines. Cash flows one way or the other. In simple terms the dealer receives a vehicle and starts making payments, usually 10% of the cost, after thirty days. Each month thereafter, another “curtailment”, i.e payment which escalates until the 120th day when the dealer pays the manufacturer in total. When the dealer sells the vehicle within thirty days, the profit margin is huge. After 90-120 days the dealer costs mount and the cash flow is negative. Obviously, there are many variations in ‘floor plans’.

A savvy buyer can make a better deal on a vehicle the dealer has had in inventory a long time. There is no exact way to know this. However, at the bottom of the ‘window sticker’ you should be able to locate the month and year of manufacture. Inside the drivers door are placards showing weights and other information along with the month and date the vehicle was built.

Almost all big ticket items (boats, Rvs, farm equipment, etc.) will be on a floor plan.

 Here we go again, Climate Change edition. (Hold on to your wallets)



Jungle system used in some states, like Louisiana. I would rather see efforts toward honest elections but that is a pipe dream. Any opinions on this type of elections?


Freak of Nature?

I haven’t had a flu shot in ten years, or any COVID poison, and haven’t gotten sick. Seems I’m not alone and there may be a reason.


Cue Sisty. “You are a freak”.

 As always, YMMV

Any legislation Polis supports is suspect on the face of it. As is any system that benefited Lisa Murkowski (spit).

Covid thing is interesting. I had covid (for the first time) last month. I was really sick but not deathly ill. Lots of really odd symptoms (and no, I won't list them here, but there was some weird) and I had pneumonia. The pneumonia wasn't the worst thing, either. So odd.

Two family members in our home (one related by blood) were not vaccinated. Neither of them became ill, even though I was around everyone while contagious. Hubby also didn't get sick, although he was required to be vaxxed for work. (So was I).

Imagine Polis as President!

Glad it wasn't worse for you.

LSP said...

I'm with you, WSF, haven't had a shot in ages and feel fine. That in mind, why make Pfizer richer than they are already?

And yes, pollution is bad.

You said it...not me.

Ah, a positive affirmation.

Iran Attacks US Warship December, 3, 2023--Are they using Biden's Gift of Millions of Dollars to Iran. But I guess that Iran must be wanting more money from Biden!
Three commercial vessels were attacked in the Red Sea on Sunday, prompting a U.S. warship to shoot down multiple unmanned aerial vehicles headed toward them.
And by the way all this was clearly verified! This aggression against America by Iran is real!
If President Biden rewards this heinous act of aggression by Iran with more money, they better hide his skinny ass or a whole lot of American patriots will be Pissing on his grave when his miserable life on this earth is over.

Biden needs to either throw in the towel or face impeachment. And Kamala better get help from both parties instead of calling Patriotic conservatives what her boss did. He called all of us "fascists." He learned it from his deep state advisory committee
The development could signify a serious escalation in a series of maritime attacks in the Middle East linked to the Israel-Hamas war.
Today, there were another four attacks against three different commercial vessels operating in INTERNATIONAL WATERS in the southern Red Sea," a statement by U.S. Central Command explained. That these three vessels are connected to 14 separate nations.

The USS Carney, a War Ship was in the southern Red Sea, just north of the Bab al-Mandab Strait, when it shot down three Houthi drones heading in its direction, a U.S. official told News souses , adding that the action was taken in self-defense. The drones were launched from Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen, the official claimed. And yet Biden has done nothing but sit back and allow this to take place almost daily now. Why is THAT!
