It’s been over four months since my last update. Nearly everything is the same so I won’t go into a long post about it. At work only one employee has not come back and it is not Covid related. Our Democrat governor ordered his indoor mask mandate in July, and as expected he keeps extending it, probably until Christmas 2021 if he thinks he can get away with it. The courts don’t seem to want to get involved. Actual mask enforcement at the stores is varied with the larger corporate owned places like Walmart strictly enforcing it while smaller “Mom and Pop” shops much less so. At the places I frequent they have mask signs up but don’t require them. From my observations public compliance at those places appears to be hovering around 50%. I still don’t personally know a single person that had Chinawuhanbatsoupvirus, or at least knew they did.

This election is not over despite what the Democrats and their sycophants in the media tell you. If you voted for President Trump that’s what they want you to believe, they want you discouraged. They want you broken. They want you to give up. Don’t. President Trump represents the “fly over” parts of this country, and he’s the first one in many years. He needs your support. He needs your prayers, money, and a note of encouragement would be nice too. I’m sure he’ll do what he has to, that’s the kind of man he is, but it’s still better when you know you’re not alone. Our President needs to know that the millions who voted for him still back him. Let him know.
PS – If you do give President Trump money do it through his website, not through the Republican’s. Also note that if you use a credit card by default it sets to reoccurring payments. If that’s not what you want make sure to check that before you agree to the donation, although if you want to stop them later it’s easy enough.
We still don’t know the winner of the Presidential election yesterday, and it might be weeks before we do. However, the election did reaffirm a belief I’ve had for a while now; universal suffrage is the stupidest idea Western civilization ever had. There are just some people not smart enough to be allowed to have any say in running a nation.
It’s been over a month since my last report and little has changed. Work is about the same with staffing still hovering around 90%.
The only major change is that last week our governor signed an executive order mandating the wearing of masks inside stores, shops, etc. This is being legally challenged by our attorney general. Two of the governor’s previous Chinawuhanbatsoupvirus executive orders have already been shot down in court, so that’s not a good sign, for him.
I’ve been out shopping three times since the order began and participation by stores was mixed. My local Walmart was strictly enforcing it, with an employee and two unarmed guards at the front door to make sure you didn’t come in without a mask. A gun shop not far from my house was not requiring it at all. The employees were not wearing masks and it wasn’t even mentioned the entire time I was there. The convenience store I frequent most had signs up saying “Masks must be worn inside,” but they didn’t seem to be enforcing it. I sat in my car a moment while I watched several unmasked customers coming and going. I went inside myself and no one said a thing. Back in my car, I sat and watched a few minutes more and around 50% were not complying. I was happy to see that at least half my fellow citizens were (figuratively) giving our governor the middle finger and not blindly following his unlawful order.
