I read a synopsis of Chairman Xi’s remarks and his critique of the policies underlying the direction of the CCP. I have followed his rhetoric and policies, listened to his speech last week multiple times, and I do not see or hear any policies that reflect unkindly on the population of his country, or the populations of the rest of the world.  Are his policies or those of the CCP so negative that our own secretive and informationally-deflective government, which never expresses or explains its own policies or directives to Americans, other than to brandish brute strength and to promote our rules-based-order, or show better intentions for all the people, and reflect positions more benevolent to all the populations of the earth, than that? Please show me how I am being misled, or misinformed.
[Wet Backs] The Border Patrol reports 2.7 million migrant encounters in fiscal year 2022, breaking a US record. There were 2.7 million migrant encounters along the southern border of the United. Link

[Revolving Door] The British Parliament has installed a revolving door at number 10 Downing Street.

[Guns] I saw a movie where only the police and military had guns. It was called Schindler’s List.

It is amazing how many small cruise lines are floating around this rock. You could walk from ship to ship if need be. Link

[Isaksen Insurance on Big Pine Key] If you have a friend, family member, or colleague feeling haunted by their current insurance solution there’s an easy solution — they need a new agent! That said, if you’ve been pleased with our services and find yourself in a position to pass along our name, we would be so grateful. In the meantime, don’t hesitate to reach out with any issues or questions you personally may have—and, of course, Happy Halloween! Link
[“The N word”] Try being a landlord and you will realize there are plenty of White n***ers out there.  Percentage wise, there may be more. I currently rent to a black man who is squeaky clean and runs a tight ship. It’s really about prejudice, just admit it!

[Trailer Trash] I wonder if people would get upset if we started to call people who are living the same style of lives as Niggers “white trailer trash”. That term doesn’t get used enough either

[Purslane] A tasty “weed” that is loaded with nutrients. Purslane is best known as a weed. However, it is also an edible and highly nutritious vegetable. In fact, purslane is loaded with all sorts of nutrients, including omega-3 fatty acids. Link
[Justice?] Four crooks severely beat a gay couple in Miami and are granted probation. What ever happened to “live and let live?”. It’s almost not worth it to report a crime as they always get away with it or the penalty is so minor as not to dissuade the crooks


[Minnesota Tan] When you leave Minnesota in the spring to visit your family down south.

[Out of Proportion] What percentage of the country is black? Actual 12%.  If you watch commercials, you will think it is 90%.
What percentage of marriages are mixed race? Actual 1%. If you watch commercials, you will think it is 90%.
What percentage is Latino?  Actual 17%.
How many families make over $500,000 a year?  Answer 26%.
[“Siamese cat”] For the kind person fostering the Siamese cat. Its expression is typical of the naughty and snippy little angels. I have owned and loved Siamese cats for fifty years. Some can be very challenging — to put it mildly. We had one live to be 24 years old. She would welcome all visitors by rubbing up against their leg. When the visitor reached to pet her she would nail them! Friends learned to ask if this was my good kitty or bad kitty. My current two are very nice but still mischievous at ten. Thanks to you for helping Tino get used to getting his own way in a more civilized manner.
[“Niggers”] come in all colors and ruin it for the good people of those same colors. Hence, the bad ones are pieces of shit!


[PeePee Pox] Pumpkin pox, gourd pox and genital pox all in one, vaccine imminent.

[“The N word”] The video on blacks and the infamous slur might be humor to some, but quite crude. Anyone that’s had to rely on others to watch each other’s back, are not concerned with this type of rhetoric. There are good and bad in all colors, ethnicity. “You are your brother’s keeper”.


[Strange Values] We live in a world where your kid cannot pretend to be an Indian. But a grown man can pretend to be a woman.

[Prejudice] To the poster telling us about how evil niggers are: Now tell us about those hideous Jews and the week after inform us about the horrendous Japs.
[New Yale Study] Covid deaths among Republicans were an astounding 76 percent higher than those among Democrats when Fox News and GOP politicians began mainstreaming conspiracy theories about vaccines and fringe nonsense and about alternative treatments. This deadly disinformation gave these cynics votes and ratings, but cost tens of thousands of Republicans their lives.
Winter is coming and getting out of bed in the morning will get increasingly harder. How to wake up when it’s still dark outside. Link
[“Mustard water”] If you ever get to New England go to a Stop and Shop market (our version of Winn Dixie) and pick up their store brand brown mustard. Tastes like Gulden’s but no water. They may also have a yellow version, but I’ve never checked
One of the scariest things in marriage is when you say something that forces your wife to take off her glasses before she responds.


Shark skin is nearly impossible to engineer. A 3D look shows why. Materials scientists have been trying to uncover the secrets of shark skin to maximize boats, wind turbines, and more. Real shark skin (top) compared with a 3D-printed material (bottom). Link

[Vaccines Work] Covid-19 vaccines prevented up to 370,000 Covid deaths and 700,000 hospitalizations last year, a new Department of Health and Human Services study found. Vaccines saved the country more than $16 billion in medical costs.
[Full Moon Kayak Tour] The Florida Keys Wildlife Society is hosting the Full Moon Kayak tours which will be resuming in November and we are looking for some more guides to assist our guests.  We arrive about 30 minutes before each tour to assist guests, the tour is about 2 hours and clean-up takes about 10 minutes at the end. If you are available at least 3 of the following dates/start times, we’d love to have you volunteer with us:  Nov. 7 – 4 p.m., Dec. 7 – 4 p.m., Jan. 5 – 4 p.m., Feb. 4 – 4:30 p.m., Mar. 6 – 5:00 p.m., Apr. 4 – 6:00 p.m. and May 4 – 6:30 p.m..  All gear and equipment is supplied.  We depart from The Old Wooden Bridge Marina 1791 Bogie Road Big Pine Key.  Mandatory training day is November 1st at 6:00 p.m. at the marina.  Optional additional safety training will be held the following day, time will be determined by those attending the training.  Tours benefit the Florida Keys National Wildlife Refuges.  Reply to to let us know you’ll be joining us or ask any questions.


[Baby Shit Dip] And this is why I’m not invited to Halloween parties.
