9/11 + 20

It’s been 7,305 days since I watched the Pentagon burning through the office window – two wars and billions of “borrowed” dollars gone down the rabbit hole – Al Qaeda, Taliban, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Arab Spring, NSA, ISIS, Syria, Iran, a mob storming the US Capitol, and the recent inglorious end to the United States longest war.  We are still in the midst of the worst Pandemic the world has seen since 1918.  And the USA is still awash in cultural and political hate and discontent!

The more things change, the more they stay the same!

It’s Under Control!

Data Sources: CDC, WHO, ECDC, NHC, JHU CSSE, DXY & QQ.

Total H1NI Swine Flu Deaths: 12,469

January 22, 2020: “We have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”

Total COVID-19 Deaths: 0

January 03, 2021`: “Something how Dr. Fauci is revered by the LameStream Media as such a great professional, having done, they say, such an incredible job, yet he works for me and the Trump Administration, and I am in no way given any credit for my work. Gee, could this just be more Fake News?”

January 14, 2021: POTUS45 hasn’t had much to say about the Pandemic during his final days in office.  Guess he’s busy packing his collection of MAGA Hats prior to that last ride on Air Force One. This is the final entry in the list of good, bad and ugly quotes by POTUS45 regarding the COVID-19 Pandemic. The COVID-19 updates will continue. (the halfVAST Admin)

March 28 2021: This is our final COVID-19 update.  But not to worry, you can view the daily statistics and much more by linking to the CDC COVID Data Tracker. (the halfVAST Admin)

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

While doing some maintenance on one of my websites, I found some stuff for the year 1987 in HR’s List that voters in this years Presidential Election should consider:

  • 1987, #37 – Blaming everybody else does not imply you are perfect.
  • 1987, #40 – Denouncing those who disagree with you is one way to cover your incompetence.

And I found one other that those who lust for power should remember:

  • 1987, #43 – Always remember that the “Man Who Would Be King” ended up losing his head. (courtesy R. Kipling)

Thursday Night Lights

It’s been said that LED Lights cast an orange glow on their surroundings.  So I decided to run a test to determine whether this is indeed a property of LED lighting.  The result is illustrated below:

As can be seen above, Incandescent Lighting does not have the “orange effect.”

So I guess the question is “Would you mind looking a bit “orange” in order to lower your energy costs?”

Corrupt News

Seen this morning on Twitter…

President Obama’s top White House lawyer, Gregory B. Craig, was indicted yesterday on very serious charges. This is a really big story, but the Fake News New York Times didn’t even put it on page one, rather page 16. @washingtonpost not much better, “tiny” page one. Corrupt News!

Those of us who realize that front page news articles typically have a headline and a few lead-in paragraphs and are also intelligent enough to figure out what the “See Craig on A4” means will have discovered that the this article consumes almost half of Page A4 of today’s Washington Post.
