Tulsa, OK needs Tesla. Tesla would have a workforce standing in line waiting for employment.

Tesla reportedly sent a couple of its representatives to Tulsa, OK, to look at two potential sites for a new factory. Oklahomans would literally throw out the red carpet for a Tesla factory. Oklahoma City had a GM plant for decades. It’s workers were lifetime employees. You don’t quit those jobs in Oklahoma. It closedContinue reading “Tulsa, OK needs Tesla.

Mother’s Day on Sunday and my dad’s birthday on Saturday.

My dad turns 84 this Saturday. Mother’s Day is Sunday. Their 60th wedding anniversary is July 23rd. There will be no social distancing going on for my son and I this weekend.

Enjoying a spring thunderstorm while having an introspective evening.

I have spent the past two hours alternating between sitting on my front porch swing and in my living room enjoying a spring rain. My two tomcats are accompanying me. They are both fascinated with the rain, noise and light show. One cat is enjoying venturing out onto the steps and getting rained on thenContinue reading “Enjoying a spring thunderstorm while having an introspective evening.”

Reopen the country while we still have one to open.

Privately owned smaller businesses are out of money. Out of money to feed themselves, their families, and their employees. Our hospitals are not anywhere near full or overwhelmed. Even my far left liberal friends are seeing the folly in the media scare tactics. No one believes the published numbers. NO ONE! The country is ragingContinue reading “Reopen the country while we still have one to open.”

Murder hornets in the US. Now I understand toilet paper hoarding.

If we do not practice staying indoors in the US, we are now being threatened by Japanese Murder Hornets. The state of Washington has documented their presence. I doubt they stay in Washington. I doubt we contain them anymore than we have contained Rona. US citizens will not stay indoors. We continue to gather inContinue reading “Murder hornets in the US.

JBS, Tyson Foods, Cargill and National Beef are responsible for over 80 percent of the US feedlot cattle processing in the US. There are other companies as well, such as Seaboard, with their hand in the meatpacking industry as well. I am focusing on the beef industry in this post but the same principals andContinue reading “Over 80 percent of feedlot cattle in the US are slaughtered by FOUR US meatpackers.

The more I see of Elon Musk, the more I like the guy.

I’ve been on the fence when it comes to Elon Musk. He is a billionaire and big player on the world stage. I am always leery of a billionaire’s motivation, or anyone’s for that matter. Most of the time he is on his own side. He doesn’t pretend that he isn’t on his own side.Continue reading “The more I see of Elon Musk, the more I like the guy.”
