Dump Miguel Cardona and His Entire department

This one isn’t high on the list, but it’s an easy out.  Pack your bags, Miguel Cardona.  We’re sending you down.

The time has come to end the most expensive and sophisticated organization ever dedicated to the art of mental masturbation in the history of mankind.  No, I’m not talking about the EPA…not yet.  There is a large group of people in Washington DC who have not justified their right to suck air since Jimmy Carter was running the third worst presidency, just ahead of Barry and Joe.

This group spends billions coming up with slogans and poster campaigns and pushing bills through congress with pithy names.  None of this has ever accomplished anything; certainly not for the constituency the organization was meant to serve.

I am speaking of the Department of Education.  Fortunately this is small, as federal agencies go; only 3,974.  But when we get rid of it we could crew an aircraft carrier for less.  We have to dump this useless paper shuffling group.  It hasn’t contributed to the education of a single child.  None of their initiatives have improved the pathetic outcomes in our schools, K-12, since it’s inception. I would argue that Dept. of Ed. has been the tip of the spear in driving our schools into the ground.

The teachers union, presently the real boss of this federal department, will turn teachers out into the street to protest the closure, instead of having them in schools teaching kids.  They will ask how we can layoff such amazing and critical talent.

The short answer is, “Easy. Watch me.”  If you’re a smart politician that should be your short answer also.  But there is more to the solution.  We can send all these people who will have teachers marching in the streets wailing about us firing them, and let them go out amongst the 50 states providing schools directly, their critical talent in educating kids.  They can fill a little of the teacher shortage that occurred right under their noses without the department being able to do a single thing about it.

Cardona can go back to Meridian, Connecticut.  Those kids need him teaching there, not serving the union as the nominal head of a worthless political bureaucracy.  Take the entire budget we would spend in the next year on the Department of Education each year and use it against the principal on our national debt.  I’ve told you before what happens when you do that.

Surely, since ALL of these people represent critical talent who previously worked for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT (the big cheese, the place where too many Americans think you go for all the answers) the school districts across the county wouldn’t begrudge them teaching positions!  These people know everything there is to know about educating children and reducing dropout rates.  Or so we’ve been told.

As an alternative, I hear Home Depot is hiring.


People you should be screaming at: Find your Republican SERVANTS on this link.  CALL them and tell them to get hot on this NOW!  Hell, call the Dems too.  You might find one or two who won’t get loose stools over it.

Mask Hysteria: Moving the Goal Posts

It would be swell if the politicians would stop moving the goal posts.  But they can’t.  They haven’t gotten Trump out of office yet.  And Congress keeps announcing more and more money is to be doled out.  So, too bad for you.  We need to keep everything screwed up at least through November.

Part 7

Well, we were first told that we just needed a few weeks of downtime to “flatten the curve” on COVID then we could open back up. A hospital ship was dispatched to New York and emergency hospitals facilities were set up in strategic areas to help hospitals with the overflow.

We quickly flattened the curve. But then we were told we can’t take our foot off the accelerator now. We need to stay shut down. We flattened the curve some more. The hospital ship left New York. This is around the time politicians realized they had the money and political thing going for them.

After months of this utter nonsense we started to talk about reopening. The damage done to the economy by this time was immense. But it seemed even the politicians were getting it. They warned that when we opened back up, there would be surges in positives reported. The availability of testing was also unmasking more cases as well. Only the wimpiest of political hacks were talking of shutting back down again.

So across the country small businesses started ordering supplies, this included small restaurants (they don’t get a do over). We opened up and…OH MY GOD! THE NUMBERS ARE GOING UP!

Across the country restaurants that had barely held on through the pretend quarantine, now with refrigerators full of perishables they put precious money into, would only to see them spoil again. Half the country went back to cowering under the bed.

Supply chains across the country were once again disrupted. 39% of businesses closed by the virus now report they will never open again.

This has been our precursor to steal us against the next flu season. I can’t wait to see how much weaker and more stupid we become as a nation when the flu and COVID are floating around.

Here’s the good news.

I never come with just the problem. I bring solutions as well. Not that they will be implemented. Politicians are too selfish and amoral to do what is actually right. Just look at the wealth wasted on ideas that did nothing for anyone for more than a week at a time. And they want to do more of the same. The GOP wants to print money and the Dems want to fund pet social projects. None of it will save a single life from COVID. Not one.

But here’s the correct course of action: Send the hospital ship back to New York. Send one to LA. Open field hospitals and emergency treatment centers, strategically, all over the country. In the meantime, open everything.  EVERYTHING.

Next we’ll discuss whether civil disobedience may be in order here.

Mask Hysteria: Celebrity Trumps Science

In the previous segment we were getting into the mask, celebrity and more phony “science”.

Part 6

Then you have people who wear a mask the way my brother (a medical professional) does.  They wear them loose or under the nose. The masks are constantly falling down. So the wearer is constantly fidgeting with the mask or breathing openly anyway.

Also, if you wear a mask all day it become moist and warm and harbors the germs you are exposed to including COVID. When you breath out, you shed those germs.

Finally, most of the masks we wear now, the cute ones people made at home while under “quarantine” are about as effective as wearing a chain link fence on your face. The weave in the cloth is many times larger than the 200[1] nanometers of a COVID cell. Will it catch some? Sure. Are you measurably safer with a homemade mask? Not much.

With these considerations, and their collective tribal knowledge of the mask, all these docs initially said wearing a mask in public wouldn’t mean all that much in terms of safety. By all means, if you want to wear one, go right ahead.

Then people got caught up in the drama of COVID. Politicians realized the money to be siphoned from the federal tit, not to mention the truncheon to beat POTUS with. The image of everyone sporting a mask became a SYMBOL. Otherwise reasonable people felt free to scold fellow citizens for not following the “science”. When personal safety still wasn’t enough to get everybody to cover up the new meme became that wearing a mask protects others so if you don’t you are selfish and want others to get sick. If you do YOU’RE A HERO.

The socio-political clamor became so rabid that one-by-one all these doctors listed in the last post eventually turned their backs on what they know to be true and started saying the mask was now the critical key to survival in the fight against the Chinese virus. The last among them was Surgeon General Adams. So much for the “science” of it all.

[1] The size of a COVID cell is estimated to be 80 – 120 nm according to NIH. The most liberal estimates are 200nm. So I am being generous here.
