Honked Off

In recent days, speaking events by Donald Trump and Joe Biden have been interrupted with honking sounds. President Trump interpreted this as passing truckdrivers showing support for him, while Joe Biden interpreted the honking as geese who heard his speech and were "cheering for him," which may be yet another reason to give Joe stronger meds. But in both cases, the candidates were just trying to assign some sense to noise. And that's how we feel about almost everything at the moment.

Actual information is still pretty easy to spot. Which is how we can tell that we're not getting much of it these days. Instead, we get noise. There is no salient point related to Covid19 on which those who should be in the know agree. Not about masks, quarantines, methods of transmission, medications, or anything else. Just noise.

Flynn? Obamagate? Impeachment 2.0? Wake us when something meaningful happens, because right now (and especially since Barr declared that he doesn't even expect Obama to be investigated) it's all just more damn noise. Get back to us when instead of the usual churn, there's real action to bring the Usual Suspects to something like real justice. Until then, well, just STFU.

As if it wasn't already painfully obvious, here at Stilton's Place we're really starting to feel the stress of the extended Covid19 crisis. There's only so long you can put up with wondering if you're risking your life going to the grocery store, wondering what will become of the country and your child's future, or watching in disbelief as the Fed prints and pumps money directly into the pockets of the richest bastards in this country (every cent of which will come out of your pocket and mine).

And all while wondering if the trillions upon trillions in expenditures flying out of Pelosi's cosmetically enhanced poop-hole will lock in our (idiot) nation's growing embrace of socialism (polls suggest that entirely too many people are tickled pinko by their "all pay, no work" checks).

Meanwhile Venezuela-style hyper-inflation may be heading our way, to stealthily steal the value of every dollar you've ever earned and saved. McDonald's "value menu" items will start at a million dollars, and they won't even offer the Happy Meal anymore because no one will be able to afford an actual meal, and no one will have any memory of what "happy" meant.

So with this daily level of background stress, we're backing ever farther away from the pointless but aggravating claptrap and honking sounds in the news. At a moment in time in which we all need to find ways to keep our cool, all of this noise annoys.


We didn't create this soothing meditation video (and SO wish we had), but it's far and away the best one we've encountered. Somehow, it really speaks to us. So take several deep, calming breaths, and just let this wisdom wash over you for a few minutes. For enhanced relaxation, every time you see a wave break, take a sip of Clan MacGregor...

A Hard Pill to Swallow

Dihydrogen Monoxide is water. Don't tell the Liberals.
Television viewers were stunned on Monday when a rash of fires broke out in the carefully coiffed hairdos of hysterical newscasters. The source of this incendiary incident was President Trump's casual announcement that, with his doctor's blessing, he's taking the anti-viral drug hydroxychloroquine and a zinc supplement as protection against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Hydroxychloroquine, which we'll henceforth refer to as HCQ because this isn't a damn spelling bee, has been villainized by the media, politicians, and even some medical organizations solely because Trump said "it might work." Their narrative is that HCQ can't possibly help Covid19 sufferers and is significantly more dangerous to ingest than drain cleaner. Which is why the news media was not only shocked that Trump has taken it, but shocked because he didn't immediately turn into a science fair model volcano geysering bloody foam all over the Oval Office.

When administered properly, HCQ seems to have amazingly good results and an excellent safety profile. But in the media's eyes, it's better for people to continue dying (and far better to keep the economy crippled) rather than admit that Trump might actually have been right about something. The fact that they're actively burying and distorting this news during the worst medical crisis in a century is a sin so profound that we can only hope the devil is currently excavating a new, much-lower circle of Hell for the media. Where their hair won't be the only thing on fire.

(Side note: if you want to be better informed about HCQ than 99% of those on social media and 100% of those in mainstream media, watch this 40 minute video. It's several weeks old, but still has accurate news you won't hear for months - if ever - from the MSM.)


Upon hearing that Donald Trump was taking HCQ prophylactically, Joe Biden said, "Damn, man - and I thought my catheter was uncomfortable!"


Of course, Nancy Pelosi weighed in on Trump's use of HCQ...

Stretching Your Stimulus

Thanks to the HEROES Act, more money will soon be flying into the bank accounts of Americans, illegal aliens and, most importantly in a time of medical crisis, political lobbyists.

And what's great about our nation is that all of those people, no matter what their race, creed, color, political affiliation, or gender identification du jour, are free to spend that money foolishly by ordering items from our own Spensive Gifts catalog...

CONGRATULATIONS! If you've been following these "Spensive Gifts" posts, you now own the entirety of the 30 year old cut-and-paste original! We still plan to turn this into an ebook (or maybe even a print book) at some point because it gives us another excuse to not go outside. If it happens you'll read about it here first!
