    Good morning, everyone! Yikes, this staying at home has my days and nights all mixed up and I find myself first up to post?

    I am pondering why not one single report out of Mexico and China virus??

      News I get in the paper & on local TV is just not covering Mexican Covid cases except when a bunch of Spring-breakers from Texas came down with it after returning from Mexico: their version of the surgeon general stated the students could not have gotten it while in Mexico because the locals did not have it. One site I looked at just now shows fewer than 2000 cases in all of Mexico, and only 79 deaths. My take is the numbers are low because they are not testing except when the very ill patient shows up at the hospital ER.

    Palm Sunday tomorrow–and the last day of the Spring 2020 40 Days for Life prolife prayer vigils.

    Even though the on-street vigils were suspended due to COVID-19 concerns, private prayer and advocacy continued. 343 babies are known (so far) to have been saved during this campaign! There are undoubtedly more–women who changed their minds, but didn’t tell a 40 Days pray-er that they had done so.

    To God be this glory.

    Good mornin’ everyone. Everyone who is here, anyway. 🙄 It is 71* here at 10:00 today. The weatherguessers are teasing us with the possibility of rain. Although, it is overcast. Hmmmm. It is like Charlie with the football. They are saying it will rain and when the time gets here, they go “no rain for you, ha, ha, ha.” :\

    Really never was much of a difference between GW Bush and Obama, they just wear different masks and deceive different audiences. Both are human filth.

    Bush Foundation Sent 2 Million Face Masks to China During Coronavirus Outbreak While They Shut Down Mask Exports to US …WTH?

      Small thing but the title should be: George H. W. Bush Foundation for U.S.-China Relations, the media’s just saying the Bush Foundation compromises the Bush Foundation in Minnesota that has numerous projects to help Native Americans in a tri-state area. Bet their phones will be lighting up.

      Ever since Bush the Elder became our first ‘ambassador’ to the PRC I believe he realized China’s potential and sold his soul and used his short tenure as CIA chief to his advantage, apparently staying in their good graces by not interfering with their ongoing operations. His ‘China’ foundation is dedicated to welding the US and China into a team that will eventually have the US a weaker partner to China.

      I believe Bush the Elder wanted a political dynasty like the Kennedy’s had but just as the Kennedys had a critical fault so does the Bush clan, closer but no cigar. Meanwhile the family’s tied itself to China and performs a Useful Idiot role that’s undoubtedly profitable on some level.

        Yes H.W.

        Agreed.

        And always thank you for sharing your knowledge and insight. I think the Kennedy family had more cerebral DNA to work with than the Bush Clan which seems to be compromised of Fredos, Kennedy’s had Joe Sr. who was actually their Michael. Ruthless and measured while pretending he loved his family.

        Neither has or had a Vito.

            Bush family chased money, Kennedy family created money. Big difference.

            Not to mention that Joe was willing to have a doc slice his daughters brain in half to further the family cause. I know we all have souls but some things are certainly beyond my small brain’s reasoning skills, even accounting for dark souls evil cloaked in skin.

              The daughter’s brain surgery was terrible, but not considered so much at the time. Of course, we judge it based on what we know now.

                Understood, but by the accounts I read Rosemary was not mentally ill, she was rebellious, maybe some depression, (nature or nurture?).

                Also after Rosemary was institutionalized her family didn’t visit her for years, decades if I recall correctly. And then it was only Rose who went to see her.

                Knowing the truth about her mental illness or lack thereof would seem an impossible point to prove or disprove at this point.

      Lovely, excellent point…….at least GW Bush prevented Al “hey I’m a Veteran”, from being POTUS. And Traitor McSlime, was told too back off by the dark money people……..hope you and all are well.

        I look at GW as a larger piece of sand in an hourglass, he just kept the internal war for our sovereignty off the front lines a little longer than the openly traitorous Gore or McCain would have done.

    Well, well. It seems to be raining. At least, there is some wet stuff dripping out of the sky. I would love to see it get harder. Right now I can only tell it is raining because the concrete is getting wet. :\

      Did that here last night, just enough to get the back-porch cat wet. Came to 1/10th of an inch. Waiting for the sun to dry the grass so I can mow. Due to be 80* again today.

    I made yogurt in my Instant Pot yesterday, and started draining it (removing the whey) this morning. I made it with higher fat than usual, and inoculated it with plain 2% Fage Greek yogurt. It is by far the BEST yogurt I have ever made!

        It was quite a revelation to me when I ran across Vorel’s photos of Mongolia. Here’s some photos of the wild and tame horses around Lake Khövsgöl, which is considered the border between the Siberian taiga and Mongolian forest-steppe.

    Can Congress Persons Fall Back From Washington?
    Editorial of The New York Sun | April 5, 2020

    One of our favorite laws of life — by which we mean poker — is that the cards talk. A man can’t lay over two pair and announce he has a full house and expect to take the pot away from the fellow showing a straight. That’s because the cards talk. Which is also how we feel about the Constitution. The parchment proclaims, and we all have to hearken to what it says.

    I have been cringing at the Coronavirus hearings when President Trump puts Fauci/Birx up to the microphone. I try to give Pres. Trump credit for knowing what to do, but I guess I just don’t have enough faith. It dawned on me today after I read something, he is putting them in front of the media so that they have to own what they are saying. LOL When it all turns out to be stupid carp, it will be they who have the videos run over and over again……………not Pres. Trump.

      Fauci has been all over the place, you don’t last through 5 presidencies without being a deep state puppet. Birx needs to lose the scarves or shawls and look more professional. I’ve stopped listening to both of them.

      I imagine President Trump is using them to his advantage.
