[Anarchy] The reckless attack of our US Capital was a disgrace. If I was still a law enforcement officer assigned to that duty station, believe me the gas would be dispelled, birdshot, etc. These thugs should have been corralled, flexi cuff, and carted off to nearest police van. You think our overseas enemies are not watching, taking notes, etc? I’m not totally for George Orwell 1984, but these traitors are no good, usurping the authority of our government and Constitution. No matter what your political standing is, you have to call this for what it was, “anarchy” instigated by President Trump.
5 people died in Trump’s failed coup attempt. Make America great again, get rid of Trump fast. Lock him up in a nut house.

There a blood drive every week, the big bloodmobile is parked conveniently for all, but not one Covid testing van anywhere! Not one vaccine van anywhere! 4,000 people died yesterday.
[Friday Joke] A man takes his wife to get tested Two days later, he gets a call from the lab. Doctor: I’m sorry to inform you that your wife’s test results were mixed up with another patient’s We’re not sure if she has COVID-19 or Alzheimer’s disease. Man: So what am I supposed to do now? Doctor: Take her for long walk and leave her. If she finds her way back home, don’t open the door.


[2021] This is going to be the same mess as 2020, at least until Trump is gone, will America have a chance at being great again.

[The Enemy Within] Thomas Jefferson once said, “The tree of liberty needs to be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants”. How many of these power-mad politicians are taking away our constitutional guarantees? Should they be considered tyrants? While joining the Marine Corps I was required to swear an oath to defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Should these power-mad politicians be considered domestic enemies to our Constitution?

Let me congratulate the fire department on their first totally successful controlled burn on Big Pine Key. As an added bonus the tall slash pines were not damaged. After all these attempts and failures at controlled burning they finally got it right! Bravo

[Insurrection] We need some new Capital police. Those guys were complicit in the insurrection otherwise they would have tried to stop them.
[The Twelve Days of Trump] 12 more days! I can’t believe Congress hasn’t stopped him before this. He’s ruled by lies and by inciting fear and hate, and conspiracies. He invented fake news and alternate truths. His 74 million followers are so dissatisfied with their country that they put their faith in this pompous buffoon. They say they love him (after they finish making excuses for his behavior). It’s similar to the fanatical followers of Hitler, even after German people realized the horrors he was doing. The Jim Jones Ministry and his followers comes to mind as another example. Trump’s power was fear. He made 74 million people believe the country would change to socialism, the police would be disbanded, free everything for all the losers, they would take your, money and, God forbid… your guns! Aaaa! His proof was the few extremists you see on tv. The nutjobs and radicals. There are always extremists at every event whether it’s Democrats or Republicans. You can’t judge a movement by its extremists. The extremists get all the attention—always. Like the guy with the buffalo headdress at Wednesday’s coup attempt. 12 more days. Sigh

[No Leadership] Don’t you want to give them a shot in the mouth? Like the country is about to go into martial law, the financial system is about to crash, we have an international deadly plague killing millions, food prices are through the freaking roof, there’s no place to go to visit, people won’t talk to one another, kids are getting dumber by the hour without school, and our political system wants to print paper to make the dummies think they are getting free money. All that and the pending invasion of the Chinese that will use us for fertilizer or dog chow.
Now with all that to ponder, how come my dimwit wife needs to use up what batteries we have in some fake candles stuck in the windows to celebrate some weird Jewish kid’s birthday? I give up.
Mark Zuckerberg has banned Trump from Facebook and Instagram and frozen his account until he leaves office in order to prevent him from inciting more violence.
Patriots are supposed to be homegrown soldiers from the Revolutionary War. That was then but now patriot means he’s an unhappy, overweight, middle-aged man with a gun and a baseball cap who’s looking to shoot another American if he disagrees with his politics. He’s like the Taliban in that if you don’t change your way of thinking he should shoot you. Patriots don’t have to adhere to the parts of the Constitution they don’t like. And don’t ever say anything negative about the 2d Amendment of you’ll really be in trouble.
[Rain, Snow, Sleet] Covid, elections, demonstrations, trouble, nothing stops the Monroe County Tax Collector from getting the bills in our mailboxes on day 1. Bless her heart.
[“Napoleon’s small penis”] This is fake history that was propagated by his enemies. Research has shown that Napoleon’s member was actually larger than the legendary porn star John Holmes’ trouser snake. Napoleon was called Tripod on the battlefield. They had to make special saddles for his horses to accommodate his enormous schwanzstucker. Needless to say, he was very popular with the ladies. Link
[Guns in the Capitol]  Where were the metal detectors? This reeks of an inside job. I think the police were in on it or otherwise hundreds of terrorists couldn’t have entered the Capitol with guns. 4 dead?

[Attempted Coup] How could an American President even dream of seizing power when he was soundly beaten by the American voter if he wasn’t crazy? Link

[State to Overrule KW Cruise Ship Control] I’m so over conspiracies but sneaking this bill in reeks of abusive of power by Disney. Link
[Blue Hole Problem] We have had some recent issues with people bending and breaking rules and regulations in the Florida Keys NWRs recently, especially at the much-visited Blue Hole observation area.
Please do not ever feed the alligators.
Please do not disturb wildlife.
Practice ethical wildlife photography and viewing. Keep your distance.
Please don’t feed the Key deer or other wildlife. Blue Hole Info Bulletin 1_6_21
[Friday Joke] The Presbyterian church called a meeting to decide what to do about their squirrel infestation. After much prayer and consideration, they concluded that the squirrels were predestined to be there, and they should not interfere with God’s divine will. At the Baptist church, the squirrels had taken an interest in the baptistry. The deacons met and decided to put a water—slide on the baptistry and let the squirrels drown themselves. The squirrels liked the slide and, unfortunately, knew instinctively how to swim, so twice as many squirrels showed up the following week. The Lutheran church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God’s creatures. So, they humanely trapped their squirrels and set them free near the Baptist church. Two weeks later, the squirrels were back when the Baptists took down the water-slide. The Episcopalians tried a much more unique path by setting out pans of whiskey around their church in an effort to kill the squirrels with alcohol poisoning. They sadly learned how much damage a band of drunk squirrels can do. But the Catholic church came up with a more creative strategy! They baptized all the squirrels and made them members of the church. Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter. Not much was heard from the Jewish synagogue. They took the first squirrel and circumcised him. They haven’t seen a squirrel since.

[The Scarlet Letter] “Adding a vaccine stamp to passports”  Nah, just put a dent or brand mark on the forehead

I think Bill Berry[?] should be President so people have something to laugh about.
Fire the head of the Capitol police.


[Spam & Oreo Sandwich] Just because McDonalds sent it to China doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy a spam sandwich. I went one better using dark chocolate Oreos and Miracle Whip and Breioch buns and a side of Pabst all served on a paper plate. Yum, I guess.

[Friday Joke] Cashier: “May I see some ID for the beer?”
Me: “Sure.” (holds up license)
Cashier: “Okay, you’re cool. I see the ‘1’
Me: “The ‘1’?”
Cashier: “The ‘1’ at the beginning of your birth year.”
Me: “Oh God…”
Cashier: “Happy New Year!”
[Recycling] I was on my way to the dump but turned around because I forgot the box of old batteries. It was a wasted effort because the dump told me they don’t recycle alkaline batteries and to just throw them away. Someone else told me that only 10% of plastics gets recycled. Am I wasting my time carrying out the blue bins on trash day? Is recycling plastic just a feel-good exercise? I know there’s a market for cardboard, paper and aluminum, but I don’t think there is a market for plastic since Trumps tariffs went into effect. Video
[Movies] Every new series has a mixed-race couple and lesbian characters. A few years ago, it was mixed-raced couples and gay man couples. Now gay women have mostly replaced gay men. Tastes change.

[“Why aren’t there more Latinos in commercials”] No comprendo Englase, puto!

[Brainwashing] Television has been used to infiltrate your home and mind since inception. The advertising has been structured to shape society, change societal norms and to indoctrinate folks with what those in charge want. Don’t believe me? Remember when cigarettes were smoked live on the news and in movies? Remember when shows were called “Father Knows Best”? “Leave it to Beaver” Dennis the Menace? All family shows. Watch an hour of The Learning Channel and see how they are indoctrinating young women today. Jimmy Buffet has a line in a song, “Turn off the TV, turn off the crap.” Just do it.

[The Man With The Magic Penis] New Danish children’s TV show features a man with the world’s longest penis. Link

Blood drive this Monday January 11 at Bealles. Schedule an appointment so you don’t have to wait. Link
“Unhinged” is a good description of Trump’s last days. His sweet little speech the day after the insurrection should have been made long ago. I’d never seen him contrite before. I almost didn’t hate him as much, but he was too late. He even said the words love and unity. Yes, Trump actually said that. Wow, love and unity! Now if we can get him to acknowledge the Constitution in its entirety, not just the 2d Amendment, these last days won’t be so bad.
Imagine if the insurgents were Black, the response of police?


School playground equipment in the year 1900. Apparently in 1900 only the strong survived recess.

[Masks] Walking the back streets of Key West you see a handful of non-masked individuals. Walking the main drag, Duval Street, and you might ask, what mandatory mask law? You can feel COVID in the air. That’s sad.

[Cruise Ship Ban Overturned] Florida Senate Bill 426 targets Key West cruise ship ban. I just woke up to this. Nice time to put a bill up when everyone is concerned with other issues. Link
A whole load of terrorists, goaded on by the President, Senator Cruz and Rudy Giuliani took over the White House in a failed attempt to hold on to power after the people voted them out of office. It was the only armed coup attempt in American history. Four people are dead, politicians were terrorized, historic rooms vandalized, items stolen, windows broken. Many of the anti-American Capitol Police stood by and took selfies, opened doors for the terrorists and did nothing. Can you imagine if the terrorists were negroes what would have happened to them?
[State to Overrule KW Cruise Ship Control] There is a new bill proposed in the Florida Senate which aims to circumvent the restrictions put in place in Key West. During the November election, Key West voted heavily in favor to place restrictions on cruise ships, effectively banning larger cruise ships such as the Disney Magic and Disney Wonder. The vote placed the restrictions into the Key West charter, but the cruise industry shutdown left enforcement up in the air. Cruise lines, including Disney, still have voyages with stops in Key West available suggesting they felt the vote was not final. Link


[Advantage of Covid] No new miracle foods that we all must eat or die

Our country is broken, and I’m really worried that it can’t be fixed!, and I’m really worried that it can’t be fixed!

After the attempted coup, Tweeter closed Trumps account for 12 hours to prevent him from continuing to incite the protesters.
If you think the Capitol Police, letting terrorist with bad intent storm the Capitol, was unintentional, you’re wrong. That’s the largest police force in D.C.

[Lie List] What would happen if someone made a list of Trump’s lies? It would be very long. Would there be room is they added his exaggerations?

The rats are deserting the ship of state hoping to rehabilitate themselves in the eyes of the voters.

Finally, we have a person capable of being President of the United States. ‘Rump’s enablers are as disappointing as he is. Go Joe!
