Diesel already at $10 a gallon

At least in Lancaster, California (north of Los Angeles) where regular unleaded is $7 a gallon. Guess which one trucks use? And what travels by truck? Just about everything.

Rittenhouse trial

At least he got one. But now that the rioters know where the jurors live, it’s unlikely he’ll be acquitted. Mob rule is the order of the day. Led by Lyin’ Biden (who has intervened by calling Kyle Rittenhouse a “white supremacist”) and Hapless Harris. And the Lamestream Media, Trump’s enemies of the people, well-known for lying.

They are that.

UPDATE: Kyle chose the alternate jury, by numbers on raffle tickets pulled from a drum. Wisconsin wrinkle? Ironic.

MORE: Brave Jury. Not guilty of all charges. Lyin’ Biden “angry and concerned” and others follow the mob leader’s conceit.


Rule 5: Louise O’Reilly

American economic death spiral

“The White House has effectively put a blockade on new contracts for cheap and efficient natural energy production, leading to skyrocketing energy prices across the nation. Under the guise of “climate action” and “Build Back Better” statism, the government is doing its best to destroy a massive sector of the economy.”

Build Back Bankrupt will be more like it for millions of people and Lyin’ Biden doesn’t care. After the prosperity-for-all of the Trump years, the impact on families will be devastating.

UPDATE: Case you suspect me of exaggeration, Lyin’ Biden’s own energy secretary has celebrated the end of gasoline and other fossil fuels.

Electric cars

That’s what Lyin’ Biden intends to force us all to buy by raising gasoline prices beyond what most people can afford. Trouble is the existing electric cars are either too expensive (Tesla goes for about $70,000); too mundane (the Chevy Bolt at $33,000) or a replacement battery costs almost as much as the car (The $27,000 Nissan Leaf can replace for about $15,000). Other than disliking being forced by lying politicians to do anything, I’m thinking it may be wiser to walk. Or ride a bicycle, like the rest of the world’s peasantry. Or continue working from home, for those who are able to do so.


A zippy, engaging little film of First Contact by an engineer and two astronomers, doing extracurricular night research until… Reasonably convincing. I enjoyed it. More than the ones who rated it 68 percent on rotten tomatoes. See it on Amazon Prime Video.

Supply chain fix another Dim creation

California’s war on independent (i.e. non-union) truckers created the supply-chain fix of unloaded ships offshore.

“California Democrats and their environmentalist special interests had set out to crush the state’s ports and [independent] trucking industry. Had everything gone as planned, this would have been a slow and gradual process. Costs would have crept up and deliveries would have fallen off without an immediate catastrophic impact. But then the pandemic and its consequences arrived.”

Dims are famous for their fuck-ups.
