Democratic Party doubletalk begins in earnest

Trump defeated Biden in Louisiana 1.255,776 to 856,034. Biden didn't owe the Democratic Party of Louisiana anything. So, who did he owe and for what to commit this act of Democratic Party doubtetalk? How much money did the campaign take from the oil and chemical industry?

Biden had pledged not to accept donations exceeding $200 from the fossil fuel industry, but has taken $895,151 from individuals and PACs associated with the oil and gas industry, according to CRP data—Liz Hampton, Reuters, October 16, 2020

Merced City Councilman Echevarria remains a Whining Thug

Merced City Councilman Fernando Echevarria, censured by the City Council for making false accusations against the mayor and for demonstrating a choke hold at a Black Lives Matter rally about the death of George Floyd, is up to his stupid tricks again. During a discussion of increasing the per diem paid to council members, Echevarria was urged to claim that former Council Member Mary Michael Rawlings was forced to quit her position because she couldn't afford to pay a babysitter.

Drought again or permanent?

I've noticed in the last week the telltale, subtle signs of drought, a staleness in the air, clouds that don't produce rain, a warm, sick sunlight, stinking dust. But,, isn't that nearly a permanent condition in the Central Valley these days? When was the last really good rain year? I'm sure that sometime during the last 22 years I witnessed one but I can't remember it. Mostly I remember stale air, no cooling breezes, no rain, an unhealthy and very unbalanced climate. -- wmh

Virus note: October 21, 2020 -- Drip, drip, drip

MERCED(BLJ) --The Merced County Public Health Department reported yesterday 154 deaths from corona visus since the pandemic began. Drip, drip, drip. On most days, another member of the Merced County public dies and we are approaching the most dangerous season of all. Only three things have proved effective: masks, washing hands frequently, and social distancing. It is insane to oppose those measures and yet there is actually political ideological opposition to it blaring out of the radio all day long.

The next time I am fortunate enough to hear a coyote or, if I"m really lucky, a wolf, yipping and howling at the moon, I will think of this article, which describes so well their wretched, hunted existences, canines hounded by Man.-- blj
