Decomposing nicely

Come November, I put my pumpkin at the end of the drive and spend the winter watching it implode. It gets creepier and creepier as it collapses from the inside. My own personal memento mori.

The climate is so mild here, you’d be astonished how long it usually lasts. The first really hard freeze shatters it, but we only get one or two of them and that later in the season.

Surprisingly, no – no-one has ever smashed it against the house.

Speaking of decomposing, wanna spend the weekend with me watching Wisconsin burn?

Has a nice ring to it.

I’m willing to bet the only thing burning will be hair, on Twitter.

I could be wrong.

I hope he sues every defamer straight into the ground. Then salts the ground. Then does a little dance on the salted ground, with Ted Nugent playing live.

The shopping districts I predicted would be open for early Christmas shopping on the eve of the verdict lived up to my prediction.

Oakland(I said “LA”), Portland, New York, Chicago.

So surprising, right?

Now let the defamation lawsuits commence.

And yes, ‘protestors’ who “protest”, after dark, in disguise, with burglarious tools, incendiary devices, clubs and bats and evil intent, should, as dopey Joy Reid said, “be afraid”.

As John Nolte said, “So now the question is, as it always is when Democrats don’t get what they want, how many Democrat-run cities will burn tonight at the hands of Democrats?”

Actually, something strange is going on here. Despite the best efforts of the media and the President and Vice President to provoke unrest, there doesn’t seem to be any going on. Yet.

Heh – easy, the Soros ATM isn’t dispensing cash and the buses aren’t being chartered during Brandon’s Presidency.

So the professional rent-a-riot class would have to pay for their own trips to far off exotic locations like Kenosha and Minneapolis and given their pay, they can’t afford to travel there right now.

Besides it’s Thanksgiving week and mom has promised to bring turkey dinner and a cup of hot cocoa with marshies down (or up) to their Fortress of Antifascism.

As of a few minutes ago, the organic waste was impacting the rotating airfoil over the verdict in:

“Protests were observed in downtown Brooklyn, New York; Boston, Massachusetts; Chicago, Illinois; and Portland, Oregon. Focusing on Portland, a riot was declared at 9 p.m. local (or 2400 ET) after hundreds of demonstrators unleashed their liberal rage by smashing windows and hurling objects at police.”

And apparently there are other expected, however the news media seem to be playing them down. Might make the Left look bad, apparently.

Heh – did anyone notice that the death toll for Covid this year is double last year.

With a vaccine in place no less…
Very strange, no?

Old time science people would wonder if the vaccine CAUSED that figure to double, but no, that can’t be, right?

I mean, we were wearing masks, and isolating, and standing 6 feet apart and we had vaccines! Double the number of dead when we didn’t even know about the virus yet and were just starting to do all the “sciency” things that were supposed to protect us. Not to mention all the people who were naturally immune, or caught it and survived without the shots. But….

Yeah, call me unscientific, I’m going with the vaccine doubled the number of deaths.

We get to know sometime 55 years from now when the FDA releases the info under the FOIA.

Late to the topic but your pumpkin looks EXACTLY like the cat getting yelled at by the blond lady now.

Kenosha didn’t burn. Kenosha celebrated.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
