Should You Get The Vaccine?

The text below is not my work but it does make some good points. Frankly, I believe that if you refuse the vaccine, then you by default become or remain a part of this dangerous issue. Your thoughts?

1.- Can I stop wearing the mask?
Government: No

2.- Can they reopen restaurants, pubs, bars, etc, and everyone works normally?
Government: No

3.- Will I be resistant to covid?
Government Response – Maybe, but we don’t know exactly, it probably won’t stop you from getting it

4.- At least I won’t be contagious to others anymore?
Government Response – No, it doesn’t stop transmission.

5.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop social distancing?
Government: No

6.- If I am vaccinated, can I stop disinfecting my hands?
Government: No

7.- If I vaccinate myself and my grandparents, can we hug each other?
Government: No

8.- Will cinemas, theatres, and stadiums operate as per normal thanks to vaccines?
Government: No

9.- What is the benefit of the vaccine?
Government Response – Hoping the virus won’t kill you.

10.- Are you sure it won’t kill me?
Government: No

11.- If statistically the virus won’t kill me anyway (99.7% survival rate) … Why would I get vaccinated?”
Government Response – To protect others.

12.- So if I get vaccinated, I can protect 100% of people I come in contact with?
Government: No

13. – Can you guarantee that I won’t experience adverse effects from taking the vaccine or die from the vaccine itself?
Government Response – No

14. – Since you’re encouraging every American to get vaccinated then when people experience severe adverse reactions, long-term effects (still unknown) or die from the vaccine will they or their families be compensated?
Government response: NO – the government and vaccine manufactures have 100% zero liability in experimental stages.

15. -How long does the vaccine last?
Government response- we aren’t sure.

So, get vaccinated!! Oh… wait a minute!

Busted, With No Shame

As I headed home yesterday I went through an alley that I use frequently to avoid the traffic in the parking area out front. About twice per month, I see people ‘dumpster diving’ in these bins. It’s sad and I really do feel bad about this. It could also be an economic indication as well as a result of job loss due to the damned Covid virus.

As I passed this person standing on some plastic trays, she looked at me, I looked at her. Her gaze seemed to me like ‘what the hell are you staring at?’ kind of look. She had two partners who were also raiding the bins. Do they have no shame? Do they simply not give a rat’s ass what other people will think about them? Again, it’s so sad.

Shortly after this, a store employee appeared from the building, walked over to them, and began a conversation with these people I noticed as I was slowly driving away. Obviously, this isn’t healthy for the people and is perhaps illegal too as it should be. I felt as though I should offer them some cash which I rarely carry, for a decent meal.

It’s Silly But True

My northern friend sent this yesterday, not my work but it’s so true, isn’t it? Try putting young folk in a car or truck with a five-speed manual transmission, how far will they get? Stop dumping the clutch, kid! I saw a video of two young guys trying to figure out how to use a rotary telephone, nope! Are they Millennials? Sorry, Millennials!

Modus Travel

Just a few snaps here, mostly on the northbound two-fifteen freeway on the west side of Las Vegas Valley. Speaking of the modus, my super-clean pickem’ up is now six years old but in fantastic, near-mint condition. No road salt has ever touched it thanks to our climate here. It’s all original except the tires, battery, and a small piece of fuel line just above the fuel tank that broke and made my garage smell really bad for a couple of days.

Sometimes, I miss driving a car though for its small size, maneuvering and handling. I’ve thought about swapping the truck for a new car but don’t want the higher insurance cost and monthly payment. The truck is paid for, the insurance is not costly at all because of my clean driving record and my age. So then, what to do?  Plus, I can’t make myself part with the truck for sentimental reasons. This brand has been in my family literally for decades.

I’ve looked at many car brands and find that the Honda line gets my attention the most. There’s a reason for this. For decades, my family has owned Honda four-wheeler bikes, dirt bikes, and power generators as an example. Honda’s quality and dependability across the board with its products have a great track record. One drawback for me is the lack of V6 power though. Not everyone wants to drive a car with a 4 cylinder lawn mower engine in it!

The Amazing Gavin

I don’t know who Gavin is, but apparently, he is an important dude in the neighborhood. I’ve included a few more photos from the Las Vegas Strip too. I was amazed and irritated to see the bicycles riding on the big boulevard as I call it. It’s the same thing as the bikers along Charleston Boulevard outside of the city around Red Rock Canyon.

Too many times, these dolts have crossed the white line and entered the main roadway, the perfect place to be splattered by cars and trucks. Not smart at all, folks… And you’ve been flipped off!

Ten More Las Vegas Strip Photos

Actually, one photo was taken at the fifteen freeway junction and has a snowcapped mountain in it which is many miles west of the city. I’m not sure if it’s Mount Charleston or Fletcher Peak. Both mountains are just under 12,000 feet tall. Are you looking for mountains? Nevada can deliver! The photo of the Luxor Hotel and the top of the Stratosphere Tower came out far better than I thought they would as they are drive-by photos. Oh, I forgot about the photo of that stupid football stadium that has seen how many games to date? A fan of football I never was.

The Last Great President

Late last year, I hit 60 years young, during these years as an adult I sincerely believe that Ronald Reagan was the very last truly great president the United States has ever had. Sliding the slider forward to January 2021, I once again have no president. During the Obama years, I had no president. Why? It’s all about politics, and never skin color so don’t go there with me.

Why the American people, the little well-trained babies called Millennials included, can’t see through the veil of lies and deceit that was the Obama presidency, and certainly the Biden years to come, I can’t understand. It’s right there in front of you, smacking your face.

Biden was the absolute worst choice the American people could have made. So thank you, and you know who you are, for taking the rest of us down the evil hole with you. Please, deport yourselves. Just an opinion, folks…

Pulling Out The Oldies

These photos were downloaded from my SSD back drive. After looking at them and the file numbers, I realised that these are some of the very first photos I took with the old Nikon D3300 camera. And I still regret selling that camera. These photos were captured at the state park near Red Rock Canyon, and up against the Escarpment, or fault line. One great thing about that old camera is that it never had the dust intrusion problem that this Nikon Z6 series has had.
