My Visit to Metropolis Illinois

I have been working as a technician since 2017. I have completed work orders in Paducah, KY but I have never had a reason to go across the Ohio river into Illinois. April 7th was my opportunity.

The big Superman statue is 15 feet tall and weighs 2 tons. The statue is awesome and I love that it exists. Superman briefly wore a stupid and pointless medical mask during 2020, but when I visited I was very pleased to see that it had been removed.

The SuperMuseum is located right next door in the town square. The store is operated by super geek Jim Hambrick. If I didn’t have the work appointment later I would have paid for a museum ticket. I will look forward to seeing the museum next time.

There is a 1954 Chevrolet parked in front of the museum that I think represents the famous comic panel showing Superman throwing a 1950’s car.

The Family

Peacock advertising

“You’ll be here for the White Clown tonight, and the ladies coming over?” cried Mildred.

Montag stopped at the door, with his back turned. “Millie?”

A silence “What?”

“Millie? Does the White Clown love you?”

No answer.

“Millie, does–” He licked his lips. “Does your `family’ love you, love you very much, love you with all their heart

and soul, Millie?”

He felt her blinking slowly at the back of his neck.

“Why’d you ask a silly question like that?”

He felt he wanted to cry, but nothing would happen to his eyes or his mouth.

BB&T Bank Long Lines

BB&T closed the Millbrooke branch in Hopkinsville, KY permanently. With the Ft Campbell Blvd branch also closed today. This was the only open branch in town. I closed my checking account because of sheit like this. I still have a mortgage and I would close that too if I could. BB&T does not deserve one dollar of my business. Every customer in this line probably feels the same way.

Massive Breakout of Libertarians in KY City

Update: The Village Restaurant agrees to serve strictly carry-out, but tent stays up, both sides declare victory.

A tsunami of libertarian action took place in Hopkinsville Kentucky on December 4, 2020 when the Christian County Health Department suspended the food service license for a local restaurant.

Outside Tent Seating

The difference between an open tent on guidelines given from the CCHD and tent open 50%, which was said but never showed to us. The excuse the Health Department used is, the flyer is wrong but what I am telling you is right. We called the state health department for guidelines. Which we were directed to do so by our local health department. They had no idea to the references. Neither did building and codes which were referenced to call on the guideline print out that the health department gave to us.

The restaurant followed guidelines as they were written, but that is never good enough. The Governor and HD ask you and your customers to sit in a cold, drafty tent outside in freezing weather we know that no person in their right mind would ever do that. We were surprised though when we came back and found that you still had a few customers left sitting inside of your tent. So that means we have to ratchet the requirements further and tell you that you must have two sides of your tent completely open.

Support your small businesses, support those businesses that are being discriminated against because they don’t belong to a MEGA-CORP restaurant chain.

Especially Support Businesses That Draw a Line and Say….

THIS FAR AND NO FARTHER

Contractor Arrives Unprepared becomes a COVID-19 Stat

Male “Karen” Cancels His Flooring Contractor

This opinion piece was published by the Hoptown Chronicle on June 23, 2020. I read it and thought neither the author nor the contractor were acting rationally. The author lives within an Establishment belief system that probably includes listening to NPR, network or cable news.

Your not wearing a mask! I want to speak with your manager.

Karen

In the United States, 122,000 people have died to date from COVID-19 in roughly four months, versus at most half than many from over the course of year from the flu. If facts matter.

Mark Neikirk (Hoptown Chronicle)

There is a significant difference between dying while infected with COVID-19 and dying of it. I already wrote about the story of an infant dying of SIDS, but the death was counted as COVID-19 because “CDC regulations”. The mainstream media lie and gaslight the public because the binary Red vs. Blue structure makes profit for them and destroys relationships for everyone else. The only way to see reality is to leave that structure entirely. Forget the CNNMSNBCFOXNBCABCCBS network, Fox News is corporate news just like CNN and both follow the same script.

Unprepared Contractor Doesn’t Get Work

A flooring contractor came to our house this week to measure, wearing no mask.
Our dialogue went like this:
“Do you have one?”
“No.”
“OK. We can reschedule. Will you call?”
“Don’t know. I’ve been doing this since this nonsense started and I haven’t seen anyone sick yet.”

“Thank you, but we have friends who have died and been on ventilators, and we have compromised immune systems in our household.”
“Yeah, well, how many of them had underlying issues â€” and (he had a big number) people died from the flu and they didn’t say crap about that.”

Mark Neikirk (Hoptown Chronicle)

Being self-employed myself I see several problems with this conversation that make it unrealistic. First, I don’t believe any self-employed individual would go to a job site without having a mask available in their vehicle. The contractor can believe that masks are stupid and unnecessary, but if your customer wants you to wear a mask then you wear the mask while your on location. Second, the contractor tries to justify his unpreparedness by challenging the customer in a political argument. Don’t discuss politics with a customer. Who does this?!

The author of this editorial lives in a mainstream news bubble. Which he has a right to believe what he wants to, you can’t cancel me for doing the same thing. The contractor in this story arrived on-site unprepared and the homeowner (his employer) will find another to do the work. Simple, happens everyday with or without COVID-19. Frankly, I don’t believe the author had this conversation with a contractor anyway.

Baby Dies of SIDS Becomes a COVID-19 Stat

It cannot be said any more clearly than this:

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear and state Public Health Commissioner Dr. Steven Stack said the virus was unlikely to be the primary factor resulting in the child’s death, but reporting methodologies mandate the case be listed as a coronavirus death. Stack reiterated that most children who contract COVID-19 do not see significant, long-term health damage.

Hoptown Chronicle

Different article this time talking about a falsified trend line increasing. The same child is mentioned in one paragraph.

Stack said that if not for the pandemic, the death would have been attributed to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. But the death will be attributed to COVID-19 because the infant tested positive for the virus, which may or may not have contributed to the child’s death, Stack said. The truth may never be known, he added.

Hoptown Chronicle

It should also be noted that there is a huge increase in compensation the hospital receives for COVID-19 patients versus non-COVID19 patients.

Mr. Burns Plan for Safe Citizens

PHASE ONE: The general public of the United States has been experiencing a fear campaign designed by Mr. Burns’ like nothing in recent memory. Since at least March 11, 2020 the public was told that millions of people would die if they did not shutdown every aspect of life and shelter-in-place in their homes. After four plus weeks of being “safer at home” millions of people have not died, but that does not matter. Mr. Burns’ plan has achieved the effect of killing millions of people without actually doing it. Superbly efficient! The primary successes of Phase One being the shuttering of Churches nationwide, desolation of large businesses, and small businesses across this country.

Separation and Division

PHASE TWO: Public gatherings at churches, social clubs, and even casual meetings at the local store are natural behaviors that promote social cohesion and unity. That is why Mr. Burns’ plan will mandate the concept of “Social Distancing” the goal being to physically and psychically separate one person from every other person. The Committee will also encourage the use of social media and technology-based forms of interaction because preliminary research indicates it enhances the affect of isolation and loneliness on individuals.

If this is the zombie apocalypse, I've decided the zombies are the people who are not taking the threat of covid seriously and refuse to take proper precautions. Stay far away from them since they actually have the power to sicken and kill you or your loved ones. #healthyathome #teamkentucky
Facebook post

In Phase One fear of an unseen, amorphous enemy (Coronavirus later re-branded to Covid-19) was introduced which The Committee can leverage to direct public suspicion on to any arbitrary group or class of people. The most important group which needs to be undermined immediately will be the skeptics and people who refuse to accept the programming The Committee broadcasts via mainstream news.

Future Control Methods

PHASE THREE: While the Public will be released from their confinement in due time. The Committee will continue directing the safe behaviors necessary after Covid-19 extreme measures have been lifted. Behavior modification that began in Phase one will be monitored by three mechanisms: Vaccination/testing, Contact Tracing, and Safe Citizen reporting.

  1. Vaccination and Testing – As a requirement for returning to work every citizen will be required to have proof of their immunity. At the time of vaccination the citizen will be marked with a quantum dot tattoo. Alternatively, if the citizen tests positive for the Covid-19 antibody they will receive a digital certificate.
  2. Mobile contact tracing – Google and Apple have already developed the OS-level framework needed for contact tracing, but each smart phone user will also download a “Safe Citizen” health app. The app will provide the user with a color code Green, Yellow, or Red. Red will mean that the user must immediately self-isolate at home for fourteen days. If sixty percent of the population downloads the app voluntarily it will not become mandatory.
  3. Safe Citizen reporting – The Committee will develop incentives to encourage friends and neighbors to report to authorities when they witness willful non-compliance. Example: K.A.R.E.N. developed by Mayor De Blasio.
