I have no idea. I should probably just take a day off.
But then I won’t make money.
So far this month, I’ve made $3.51 off the ads on this site. God, let’s hope that doesn’t put me into a higher tax bracket.
Martin Kidston over at the Missoula Current is doing a lot better. Engen gave him $900 to run some sidebar ads for a few weeks.
Hell, that’s more than I’ve made from this site in 8 years (at least when it comes to advertising).
The big problem with Martin’s site is that it’s so boring.
What are the first websites you visit each day? Probably the ones that excite you.
Does the Missoula Current excite? I don’t think so.
You really have to grab people right away, in that first sentence. When they get to your site and read that first line, you want them to give that slight smile, that accelerated heartbeat, that feeling that, yes, they made the right decision.
I try to do that. Am I doing a good job at it? Not really.
Montana Covid Deaths:
- 0-9: 0
- 10-19: 0
- 20-29: 6
- 30-39: 34
- 40-49: 63
- 50-59: 163
- 60-69: 323
More young people die on our roadways than from Covid. More young people take their own lives.
70% fully vaccinated. 78% have at least one dose.
That ‘bastard’ Joe Manchin’s state of West Virginia is the worst. Just 41% fully vaccinated, with 48% having at least one shot.
How do the two states compare?
The graphs are nearly identical.
At this point, truth...science...none of that matters. People have made up their minds.
You’re either with the program, or you’re not.
A couple years ago, I would have thought a civil war and splintering of this country was fool’s talk. Now I think it’s inevitable.
All the experts said covid would be bad. Sadly, it wasn’t.
So far, over a year and a half into this debacle, and we’ve had just 713,000 deaths.
713,000 over 19 months is 37,000 deaths a month.
My God, more people are dying in this country from heart disease. But that’s not ‘contagious,’ so we discount it.
How contagious is covid? I come into contact with hundreds of strangers a week in my job, but I’ve never gotten it. And I haven’t worn the mask in months.
The bottom line is...we haven’t had enough deaths, not nearly enough.
In a country of 332 million people, the 713,000 covid deaths represent 0.021% of our population.
How the hell are we going to solve the housing crisis in this country if more people don’t die from covid? How are we going to make Social Security solvent again?
Simple - we’re not.
And that frustrates me to no end. Not only do we have hardly any deaths from covid in this country, but we’re forced to do draconian measures to ‘prevent the spread.’
Folks, we need the virus to spread more, a lot more. We don’t have enough deaths. How are we going to get climate change under control if we have so many people?
Elon Musk, Mark Zuckerberg, George Soros, Jerome Powell, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell, Kamala Harris, Joe Biden...these people are counting on you to do the right thing so they can stay high on the trough.
So just catch covid and die already. Take one for the team. Help the climate. Signal your virtue. Become woke.
Or did you think they’d do that?
They’re rich assholes, with the ‘best healthcare in the world.’ You know the people they pay would never allow them to die, jeopardizing their paychecks. Never.
They’re important. The meaningless peons (you) that actually prop up the economy? Totally expendable.
When the civil war comes, it’ll be very interesting. Who do you think will have the upper hand at the get-go...the right, or the left?
The left hates guns. Many of their most faithful following have no idea how to use one. Perhaps they can virtue signal their way to a victory.
Once the war starts, there’ll be nothing stopping anyone from going up the hill to the rich man’s house, kicking in his door, and beating him to death in his own bedroom. Those expensive home security systems? It takes 8 minutes before police are notified, and then 10 more before they get there.
When the civil war starts, it won’t matter what your job was or how much you made or how important you were. The political donations you made, the asses you kissed, the cocks you sucked to get one more rung up the ladder.
None of that’ll matter.
It’s coming, damn fast.
I can’t wait.
I think it’ll start in Australia. I suspect it’ll be a rather law-abiding citizen, one that’s just had too much. They’ll beat a police officer to death, and take the gun. More than that, they’ll take the keys to the police’s arsenal.
Australia banned guns years ago, and that’s why the government feels it can get away with this. But they can’t.
That simple person will start a revolution in that country, one that’ll sweep through the western world.
Once Australia rises up, it’ll be a clear signal to the rest of us that it’s time.
I can’t wait.
