The Eagle And The Crow

“The only bird that dares to peck an eagle is the crow. The crow sits on the eagles back and bites his neck. The eagle does not respond, nor fights with the crow; he doesn’t spend time or energy on the crow, instead he just opens his wings and begins to rise higher in the heavens. The higher the flight, the harder it is for the crow to breathe and eventually the crow falls off due to a lack of oxygen.

Learn from the eagle and don’t fight the crows, just keep ascending. They might be along for the ride but they’ll soon fall off. Do not allow yourself to succumb to the distractions….keep your focus on the things above and continue rising!!”

Don’t let the creeps and crows in life get you down. Soar above them.

Apple Computer Is Not Pushing Anything Here… Are They?

Pulled the Apple Watch out of the drawer the other day to track work outs a bit. Of course, the Apple Watch is no cheap product, so appreciate the frequent software updates. For some reason, the AW gets a lot of attention for ‘multiple coloring’ themes from Apple. It seems to be their ‘wear your statement on your wrist product’.

As Apple is one of the largest companies in the world, it’s always good to be seen as a moderate for various thinking within their massive customer base.

This morning, got a notification that wasn’t about an Apple Watch update, it was about a new watch face. Not anything particularly useful as it doesn’t display temperature, upcoming meetings, or any other useful information. It does come ‘loaded’ with what appears to be bias towards a certain type of thinking group.

Why do they have they push this on us? How about a ladies day face? A guys watch face? A runners watch face? Or maybe some other truly useful watch-face? This is truly disappointing to see Apple pushing something that the majority of the customers likely don’t support. Maybe it’s time to put the watch back in the drawer.

What does the label of a box of facial masks say?

The next time you buy disposable masks, read the label on the box, which states, “This mask does not eliminate the risk of contracting any disease or infection.” On boxes of surgical masks read, “Single use surgical masks are intended to be worn to protect both the patient and the healthcare personnel from the transfer of microorganisms, body fluids, and particulate material. These masks are intended for use in infection control practice to reduce the potential exposure to blood and bodily fluids.”

Therefore, wearing a mask is of limited use when dealing with a virus or other airborne disease and more of a placebo than anything else. However, if it makes you feel safe, wear one.

What About The Government Redistribution of Wealth?

I’m an electrician and have worked for 44 years. I spent the first 24 years working in Canada and struggled to get ahead because of the high income and sales taxes and additional fees the government levied on everything from gasoline to beer. I had no spare income for any sort of retirement savings account.

Twenty years ago I moved to the U.S. and began a new life in Texas. I now have a net worth of $650,000 and will add another $75,000 when I retire in 3 years. With that and some Social Security I’ll be able to enjoy a modest yet comfortable retirement.

This wouldn’t have been possible if I stayed in Canada. No amount of “wealth redistribution” will ever replace hard work and a prudent savings plan.

A Readers Experience With Wuhan Corona Virus COVID-19

I had COVID toward the end of October/first of November. I ran a fever (102.3), had the chills, ached all over, and was really fatigued. I went to the doctor, who prescribed me a Z-pak, Prednisone, and I was referred to the local hospital for the Monoclonal antibodies infusion.

Over a two day period, I got progressively better, and by the third day, I had a follow up appointment and tested negative for COVID.

My point – there are treatments for COVID.

The Climate! The Climate!

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen, Norway. Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds.

…I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922. As reported by the AP and published in The Washington Post — 99 years ago!

Insights On The Democrats’ Build Back Better Act Legislation

Whatever you want to call the Brandon/Biden Administrations attempt through its democrat party friends in the House of Representatives, it is an attempt to bribe the voters with money the American government doesn’t have. One commenter put it very well saying,

  1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
  2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
  3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
  4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
  5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the working half is going to take care of them, and when the working half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end for any nation.
