Only Four F**king Days

Philadelphia mayor and drunken stumble-bum Jim Kenney mandated masks for anyone and everyone who enters a Philadelphia building Monday, despite the fact masks have been proven ineffective. What happened next, was peak Jim “I’ll Have Another Whiskey” Kenney.

Philadelphia’s Board of Health rescinded its indoor mask mandate Thursday night — three days after it went into effect, and hours after Mayor Jim Kenney defended the controversial policy that made his city an outlier in the national COVID-19 response.

There are multiple reasons why this bullsh*t mandate was revoked so soon. First, most Philadelphians were ignoring the order. Princess P and I went into two stores and were the only ones wearing a mask. The city has had enough of this failure theater, and it showed.

The city still strongly recommends masking in indoor public spaces, city spokesperson Kevin Lessard said.

“Due to decreasing hospitalizations and a leveling of case counts, the City will move to strongly recommending masks in indoor public spaces as opposed to a mask mandate,” he said.

The second reason is because Kenney fled to Florida for a week, and was seen walking around maskless.

Officials from the Philadelphia Department of Public Health have said from the day the mandate was announced they hoped it would be brief, but they projected it being in place for weeks, not days. The mandate, which required people to wear masks at all indoor public settings, including businesses, offices, and gyms, went into effect Monday.

The final straw was the 76ers basketball game. The cameras panned through the arena, and very few people were wearing masks. I believe that was the day the order went into effect.

Yesterday I went to the gym, and I was the only person in the place without a mask. I assumed everyone heard about the order being removed, but apparently not.

An Exodus Worthy Of Moses

New York politicians are desperately planning to spin the fact their state is hemorrhaging citizens at an alarming rate. Millionaires, especially, are fleeing New York, thanks to the continually rising taxes.

New York elected officials are scrambling to spin their disastrous population losses as something that can easily be reversed with just a few tweaks to the business environment, more federal aid and more spending from Albany and City Hall.

Sorry, the municipal-bond market appears to disagree.

It took a while, but New York’s millionaires have finally had enough, and they’re headed south for a more pleasing economic climate.

Despite constant bashing from class-warfare-obsessed progressives, those much-maligned millionaires and billionaires generate most of the city’s and state’s tax revenues. Rich people were willing to pay high taxes and subsidize this largesse because the Big Apple was still the cultural center of the world, and because under Mayors Rudy Giuliani and Mike Bloomberg the streets remained safe.

If history is any guide (see the 1970s fiscal crisis) it won’t end well. Once the federal COVID-relief money dries up, Hochul and Adams will be looking at a shrinking tax base, much higher debt-service costs and big budget problems — just what the markets are foreshadowing. Politicians may spin, but municipal-bond prices don’t lie.

This is a good news, bad news situation. On the one hand, people are fleeing New York, which will cripple the tax base. On the other hand, these New Yorkers will bring their leftist policies with them, and ruin some southern states with their politics.

The NFL Is A Racist Organization

At the start of the 2022 football season, every team in the NFL will be required to hire a diverse person as an offensive assistant. Said person must be a minority or a female. Merit will not be considered.

Beginning this upcoming season, all 32 NFL teams will be required to hire a “diverse person” to serve as an offensive assistant on their coaching staff.

The NFL announced Monday that the new rule is in place to improve diversity within the head coaching pipeline. The NFL’s definition of a diverse person is any “female or a member of an ethnic or racial minority.” This person must have at least three years of coaching experience at the collegiate or professional level to qualify.

Okay, so whites need not apply? That sounds extraordinarily racist, but what else would you expect from the NFL?

The subject of minorities being considered for head coaching vacancies has been one of the main talking points during the NFL offseason. It was amplified after now Steelers defensive assistant Brian Flores accused the Giants of bringing him in for an interview when they already had a hire in place and Dolphins owner Stephen Ross offering to pay him more money to tank during the 2019 season when he was the head coach in Miami.

Brian Flores made $3 million during the 2022 season, but yeah, look how oppressed he is.

Black players represent 70% of the league, while white players comprise 28%. If you’re looking for diversity, how about hiring more white coaching assistants? Oh, we can’t do that, because of white privilege… or something.

Mayor Beetlejuice Is A Hypocrite

The mayor of Chicago, Lori “Beetlejuice” Lightfoot, who suggested the city remove $80 million dollars from the police budget, apparently has more than seventy officers on her protection detail.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, a Democrat who proposed cutting a huge $80 million from the Chicago Police Department budget in 2020, has a personal police unit consisting of a whopping 71 officers to protect her, and blamed some of her personal need for protection on former President Trump, telling the Chicago Sun-Times, “When the president of the United States uses the world’s largest megaphone and platform to target you personally, terrible things happen. And he not only blew a dog whistle, he pointed really evil and dangerous people right at my doorstep.”

The special unit, named Unit 544, now is comprised of 65 officers, five sergeants and a lieutenant, but that’s not all; “Lightfoot also has a separate personal bodyguard detail, which includes about 20 officers, the records show,” The Sun-Times noted.

Most big cities have a protection detail, but the average amount of personnel is maybe ten to fifteen. Seventy-one officers is ridiculous, and it removes personnel from patrol.

John Catanzara, president of Chicago’s Fraternal Order of Police, commented, “While murders are soaring, while districts are barebones for manpower, all that matters is protecting her castle.”

Catanzara isn’t wrong. Homicides are skyrocketing in Chicago, as always, and most of those officers would be better served fighting crime on the street, as opposed to sitting in patrol cars outside Beetlejuice’s residence.

F. Joe Biden Is Destroying America

The illegitimate president has decided he will raise tax rates on “the rich” in his 2023 budget.

“The ‘Billionaire Minimum Income Tax’ plan under President Biden would establish a 20 percent minimum tax rate on all American households worth more than $100 million,” The Washington Post reported. “The White House plan would mandate billionaires to pay a tax rate of at least 20 percent on their full income, or the combination of traditional forms of wage income and whatever they may have made in unrealized gains, such as higher stock prices.”

The report said that billionaires would have to pay the difference between what they are paying now and the 20% rate, assuming they are paying under 20%. If they are paying more than 20%, then they would not owe anything additional under the new proposal.

One wonders if the Biden Crime Family will have to pay these taxes, because as of 2021, F. Joe Biden still owed $500,000 in Medicare taxes to the IRS.

“The Billionaire Minimum Income Tax will ensure that the very wealthiest Americans pay a tax rate of at least 20 percent on their full income,” a White House document says. “This minimum tax would make sure that the wealthiest Americans no longer pay a tax rate lower than teachers and firefighters.”

This is not even remotely true. This from The Heritage Foundation:

The latest government data show that in 2018, the top 1% of income earners—those who earned more than $540,000—earned 21% of all U.S. income while paying 40% of all federal income taxes. The top 10% earned 48% of the income and paid 71% of federal income taxes.

This dementia-addled jackass is preparing to raise the top income tax rate to 39%. You know what will happen when that occurs? It will ensure all “the rich” will flee the country and take their money with them. This plan is insane, and will lead us to a recession, or worse, a depression.

It’s Time To Bankrupt Disney World

Employees at Walt Disney World are walking off the job every day from 3pm to 3:15pm. Why? Because the leftists there want Florida schools to teach sexual orientation and LBGT issues to toddlers.

LGBTQ workers and employee allies at The Walt Disney Company staged a walkout in protest of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill, dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill by opponents.

There is no “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The legislators dubbed it the “Parental Rights in Education” bill, which will protest children from kindergarten to third grade to not be indoctrinated sex and LGBT matters.

“The Walt Disney Company’s (TWDC) LGBTQIA+ community and their allies are determined to take a stand against TWDC’s apathy in the face of the bigoted ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill put forth by the FL state legislature,” the protest’s website states.

The bill prohibits instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity from kindergarten to third grade and would limit or prohibit what classrooms can teach about sexual orientation and gender identity in other grades unless they are “age appropriate or developmentally appropriate,” a threshold criticized as vague by opponents. It would also allow parents to sue schools that engage in these topics.

My goodness, Governor DeSantis is a monster for keeping sexual orientation and gender identity away from young children. Personally, I think every kindergarten kid should be instructed in sexual issues from day one.

The left destroys everything it touches.

FJB Will Allow Some Oil/Gas Leases

Well, it took the Biden administration a year and a half, but the “president” has announced he will allow some leasing of federal land for oil and gas production. Wow, thanks Mr. President*, you are truly merciful!

(It’s almost as if there is an election coming up.)

The Biden administration is finally moving forward with re-starting the leasing of federal land for oil and gas drilling. The Interior Department made the announcement after a federal appeals court ruled in favor of the administration last week. The “social cost of carbon” value is factored in measuring the cost of climate change in the drilling process. The court ruled that the administration can use a higher calculation value of per ton of greenhouse gases emitted in the federal decision–making process.

The “climate change” truthers are a cult. These people will literally let you freeze to death while the elites enjoy all the gas and oil they can buy.

When Joe Biden ran for president, he promised to stop federal drilling auctions, but that effort has caused Republican-led states to file court challenges. Since he took office in January 2021, Biden’s administration has provided a string of stops and starts to the federal oil and gas leasing program. Biden wants a return to the Obama-era value of $50 per ton of greenhouse gases emitted, while Republicans prefer the calculation used during the previous administration of $10 per ton.

It’s difficult to believe this country was completely energy independent a little more than a year ago. Trump made that happen in less than four years. Now, the Interior Department is claiming it might be a while, because of… climate change.

The Interior Department said there would be a delay in upcoming federal oil and gas lease sales last month because a Louisiana federal judge blocked the administration from using its much higher social cost of carbon value when it factors in the risks of climate change in decision-making on permits, investments, and regulatory issues.

F. Joe Biden virtually destroyed Pennsylvania’s oil and gas industry on his first day in office. I believe fracking is also way down, and they are destroying our former energy independence by putting “climate change” before anything else.

Swimming Against The Tide

So the NCAA Division I Swimming Championships were held Thursday, and wouldn’t you know William “Lia” Thomas won the National Championship. You would think Thomas, a man, would be embarrassed by routing girls in the pool, but nope; Thomas is proud.

No matter how badly radical trans activists and wokesters want it to be true, University of Pennsylvania swimmer and NCAA champ Lia Thomas is not female. She’s just not. We don’t begrudge her her right to live her life as a woman if that’s how she chooses to live her life, but that doesn’t change her biology. Biologically speaking, she’s still a man — and she has no business competing against biological females in women’s sports.

Truer words were never spoken.

Thomas won the NCAA national championship yesterday not by being the best woman swimmer, but by competing against actual women’s swimmers knowing full well that she has unfair physical advantages.

We can only imagine the depths of the hurt and anger felt by the women athletes who are relegated to a distant second or third or who never get a chance to medal at all because the NCAA sanctions trans women participating in women’s sports. But this photo gives us a pretty good glimpse into how those women are feeling..

I can’t post the actual photo because it’s from Getty, and they always try to extort money if bloggers use their photos. I can link the photo, however, and this is how it looked.

It’s great to see the females shun this fraud, despite the fact they’ll probably get hell for it. If the female swimmers continue on this path, it’s possible they can reclaim their sport back.

Borders For Thee, But Not For Me

Leftist jackass Nancy Pelosi has announced the Democrats will give $10 billion – billion with a “b” – in humanitarian, military, and economic aid to protect Ukraine’s border.

Ten billion dollars to shore up Ukraine’s border, and not one penny to secure ours.

The government funding bill signed by President Joe Biden in February expires Friday, March 11, giving Congress just four days to come to an agreement on another appropriations package. Lawmakers have only agreed to a series of short-term resolutions since Biden took office, wrangling on various government programs, including federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates and an expansion of the Internal Revenue Service’s authority over privately-held bank accounts.

“The United States remains ironclad in our commitment to the Ukrainian people and in unity with our allies,” Pelosi said in a statement. “American troops will not go to war in Ukraine — but our nation can provide military equipment and support our allies who are supplying airplanes to Ukraine.”

This lying beyotch also claimed they will put forth a bill to stop purchasing Russian oil, but we all know that’s never going to happen. At least not with Dementia Joe in the White House.

They’re All Very, Very Corrupt

During the “president’s” hilarious State of the Union Address, F. Joe Biden removed a line from his speech where he planned to ban members of Congress from holding and/or trading stocks.

During his State of the Union (SOTU) address on Tuesday evening, President Joe Biden declined to endorse a bipartisan plan to ban members of Congress from holding or trading stocks.

The Washington Post reported that earlier drafts of Biden’s address included an endorsement of banning members of Congress from trading stocks, but a transcript of the speech reveals it was ultimately cut — mentioning only the Russian stock market.

There have been legitimate accusations that members of Congress are participating in insider trading, and more than a few congresscritters are making millions in the market. Like this bitch right here…

In December 2021, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) stated that Congress and their family members should not be banned from trading stocks because “we’re a free market economy.”

The remark came after it was revealed that 54 Republicans and Democrats in Congress failed to properly disclose their transactions in accordance with Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act.

The watchdog organization Unusual Whales has revealed that, on average, members of Congress beat the market in 2021 with hundreds of millions of dollars in stock trades. Those who faired the best were Reps. Austin Scott (R-GA), Brian Mast (R-FL), French Hill (R-AR), John Curtis (R-UT), Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), and Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

I expect Pelosi to be uber-corrupt, but the fact that douchebag RINO Dan Crenshaw is making a killing really grinds my gears. Seriously Texas, you need to jettison this leftist douchebag, post haste.
