Wed Blog: It's the Last Show for Me Before Christmas!

THE WINE YOGI IS ON TO TALK BUBBLES FOR THE HOLIDAYS! And as she's in South Carolina we won't be tasting but doing a basic primer of bubbles so you can seem like you know what you're talking about when you show up with a bottle of something sparkly this year. Find out more about bubbly wines just in time for the holiday with this blog posting! (Just so you don't feel stupid, I often walk through the wine store with her blog open to help me out, there is no shame in this.)

COME FOR THE BOOKS, STAY FOR THE METH The Main Library Branch in Boulder is closed until they can clean the methamphetamine residue out of the air ducts in the bathroom. Read that sentence again and tell me we're doing enough about the homeless problem. It didn't get there by accident, it got there because people are smoking meth in the bathroom. What if your kid goes to that branch and has to use the bathroom? Is this what is okay in Boulder now? We're letting addicts and scumbags ruin our state and no one seems to want to do anything about it.

HEY KIDS, MASKS STILL DON'T WORK As I'm guessing there is going to be some sort of resurgence by the mask compliers demanding we are forced back into masks, I thought I'd share this long article from City Journal as a reminder masks don't work. You have to create an account to read it but it's worth is. Then there is this article from Brownstone Institute, which is home to the best covid pragmatists from the medical community. This article is about a study which clearly shows that N95 masks don't work better than surgical masks, which you already know don't work. I want you to be able to push back using science, not emotion and this should do it.

THERE'S A SANTA SHORTAGE IN COLORADO! And I of course don't mean The REAL Santa who we know is busy in the North Pole making toys and getting ready for his big night. I'm talking about all those Santa's HELPERS who appear at malls and parties and whatnot. Covid has lead many older folks to not want to spend a day with snot nosed kids on their lap and now we've got a shortage! Read more here.

A DISGUSTING RN LEADS TO A HUGE LAWSUIT This story is horrifying to me and honestly my nightmare. A nurse in Grand Junction abused maybe THOUSANDS of patients in the ICU and THEN RECORDED IT ON HIS PHONE to use later for sexual gratification. Now there is a class action lawsuit in place against the hospital and it's gonna be a doozy. This monster is already facing charges but I want to know HOW he was found out. Did he SHARE these photos and videos? If you were an ICU patient at Saint Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction in the last ten years you need to read this story and perhaps call this attorney. So, so gross.

HOW TO MAKE SURE YOUR CAR STARTS IN THIS BITTER COLD This isn't something I've thought about since I've not lived through "it could be 50 below with wind chill" but if you've got an older battery you may want to go ahead and pick one up today just in case. Our friends at Fox 31 did a great story about how to cold proof your car.

HOW TO PROTECT PETS THROUGH THIS COLD SNAP I can't help but think about my old neighbor who left her dog outside in the bitterest of temps. She's no longer my problem but I hope she isn't a horrible person as temps drop this week. Watch this to find out more, but BRING YOUR DAMN PETS IN THIS WEEK.

IF MICHAEL SCOTT OWNED A SPORTS BAR This is so utterly cringeworthy. Aurora City Council member Steve Sundberg owns a sports bar in Aurora and before he was elected to the City Council he made a series of EXTREMELY cringey videos to promote his sports bar. In them, he adopts the accents and language of various ethnic minorities in such a way that...ugh. It reminded me of this so hard.

RIP TO THE GREAT FRANCO HARRIS The Hall of Fame running back was just 72 and passed away in his sleep. Read more here.

J&B WHISKEY GOES FULL TRANS IN ITS LATEST AD I find this ad...weird. Just super weird. Watch it and then we can discuss.

On the one hand, it's obviously designed to show that acceptance is important, which is good. But why is everything trans now? And is the whiskey crowd really the trans crowd? Maybe, I'm not sure. All that being said, this is a message, not a commercial and I'm sick of being told how to live by an ad. Sell me a product or don't, but enough already with this crap sent out to virtue signal.

THE DEMOCRATS FURTHER WEAPONIZED THE IRS The Dems on the House Ways and Means Committee used a rule about looking at confidential tax information as an excuse to release Donald Trump's tax returns. I honesty don't care about Trump's tax returns, but this seems shady as you know what to me. I found this part of the Wall Street Journal story to be especially entertaining:

The Internal Revenue Service hasn’t completed the Trumps’ audits for any of those years, and Democrats contended that the agency was too slow and timid in how it handled the complex, sensitive tax returns of Mr. Trump, particularly during his presidency.
The committee used a provision of the tax code that lets lawmakers on the tax-writing panel review otherwise confidential documents and make them public in a report.
“I voted to reinforce this critical principle: No person is above the law, not even a president of the United States,” said Rep. Brendan Boyle (D., Pa.), a committee member.

So the Dems say no one is above the law, but the statute they used to justify this doesn't really give them the power to from where I'm sitting. From the actual statute:

(f)Disclosure to Committees of Congress(1)Committee on Ways and Means, Committee on Finance, and Joint Committee on Taxation
Upon written request from the chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means of the House of Representatives, the chairman of the Committee on Finance of the Senate, or the chairman of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish such committee with any return or return information specified in such request, except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure. (emphasis mine)
(2)Chief of Staff of Joint Committee on Taxation
Upon written request by the Chief of Staff of the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Secretary shall furnish him with any return or return information specified in such request. Such Chief of Staff may submit such return or return information to any committee described in paragraph (1), except that any return or return information which can be associated with, or otherwise identify, directly or indirectly, a particular taxpayer shall be furnished to such committee only when sitting in closed executive session unless such taxpayer otherwise consents in writing to such disclosure.

I would be you my paycheck that Trump did NOT consent to such a disclosure. On the other hand, if this is the beginning of a new day of transparency I would like to see the exact trades and stocks held by every member of Congress, wouldn't you?

SO ABOUT THE JFK ASSASSINATION I mentioned the other day on the show how proud I was that my daughter thought the Warren Commission was crap when she learned about JFK's assassination and now we know why. It was crap. Now more and more stuff is coming out that implicates not only the CIA, but LBJ as well. Read more here.

SHOCKER: GOVERNMENTS ARE USING COVID TRACKING FOR A BUNCH OF OTHER STUFF This story is what so many warned about when we were told to "sign up" for covid tracking programs. I did not. In come countries like Israel it was required so citizens had no choice. Now some citizens are realizing that their government is now using that tracking for nefarious purposes, including to put activists on notice when they go somewhere the government doesn't want them to go. China is of course the leader in this, but Israel is doing the same thing. From the AP article you should read here.

After clashes in May 2021 at the Al-Aqsa Mosque helped trigger an 11-day war with Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip, Israel experienced some of the worst violence in years. Police lobbed stun grenades into the disputed compound known to Jews as the Temple Mount, home to Al-Aqsa, Islam’s third-holiest site, as Palestinian crowds holed up inside hurling stones and firebombs at them.
By that time, Israelis had become accustomed to police showing up outside their homes to say they weren’t observing quarantine and knew that Israel’s Shin Bet security agency was repurposing phone surveillance technology it had previously used to monitor militants inside Palestinian territories. The practice made headlines at the start of the pandemic when the Israeli government said it would be deployed for COVID-19 contact tracing.
A year later, the Shin Bet quietly began using the same technology to send threatening messages to Israel’s Arab citizens and residents whom the agency suspected of participating in violent clashes with police. Some of the recipients, however, simply lived or worked in the area, or were mere passers-by.

NOW READ HOW THE FEDS USED TWITTER TO SPREAD PROPAGANDA In the latest Twitter dump we find out that the Pentagon REGULARLY asked Twitter to "amplify" and "verify" certain accounts which were being used by the Pentagon to spread propaganda around the world. Don't get me wrong, I get that everyone does it, but to know that Twitter was so willing to be a government stooge when asked is a little disconcerting. Especially since they were promoting military conflicts around the world. How do the progressives who ran Twitter square that? Read the whole thread below. Talk about being useful idiots.

JON CALDARA LOVES FRONTIER AIRLINES...NOT And he wrote a column about a recent experience he had with our hometown cheapass airline. Read it and be amused.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE CDC BECLOWNING ITSELF And further being used as a political tool. This one has to do with the CDC bowing to political pressure and removing studies which showed defensive gun use is a real thing and it happens A LOT. Anti-gunners don't like that, so they pressured the CDC to remove THEIR OWN STUDY. Read more here.

THE TALIBAN LIED ABOUT BEING NICE TO WOMEN As they have now been banned from universities, along with health clubs and being outside alone. Thank goodness the Biden admin is so pro-woman! Oh, my bad that's only if they are men who want to be women or women who want to terminate a pregnancy. These women don't matter.

LOW LIBIDO COULD MEAN EARLY DEATH FOR MEN And guys, there is NO excuse for suffering in silence, we've got like three advertisers who can help with this. A new study shows that men with low libido are almost TWICE as likely to die from any cause earlier than they should. This is really interesting but it has to be hormones, though whether or not it's a lack of testosterone doing these things, or the things like drinking and not exercising causing low libido the study does not address.

THE CLOUD IS RUNNING OUT OF ROOM And out of need comes innovation so don't worry just yet. It appears all of those cat videos and marketing emails we never delete are taking up a huge amount of space in the cloud and we're running low. Never fear, as scientists are working on NEW data storage solutions that are smaller than a strand of hair.
