Joint Sessions

Recently, we witnessed a joint session of congress, Both house and senate, the president, his cabinet, the heads of the various federal departments, the joint chiefs of the services, and the supreme court justices. 

Essentially the entire government the U.S. plus many allied ambassadors. Tom Clancy wrote two novels that depicted a 747 loaded with fuel was flown into the capitol building, killing everyone inside. Bingo! No government.

China could do this ant time we get everyone together. We must rethink this.

Lake Could Freeze

It has been many years since Lake Pend Oreille froze over. I have heard it has, but not in the 26 years I've lived in Bayview.

Many things have to come together. First, an Arctic outbreak, well we certainly have that. Then the lake temperature must get very cold. Then no wind to keep the water still.

If we get enough below zero weather, the bay could snap freeze. It will be very interesting to see.

There are 9 days predicted to be at or below zero in the next month and multiple days at least 8 days at 15 or less.

Reverse Racism

Well, it looks like the downtrodden has been elevated to superior.

When is the last time you saw a commercial that didn't include a black person? Usually a male paired with a blonde Caucasian woman. 

This in your face attempt is designed to raise black people to that above everyone else and to promote mixed relationships. This campaign is way over the top. Equality, yes, but brain washing a resounding NO!

fire Close To Home

After seeing multiple fire fighter flights dipping in Lake Pend Oreille, I called Timberlake. They informed me of a new fire at approximately Hwy 95 and  Trails End. This would explain the heavy response for a heavily populated area near by.

Stand by.

American Flag Protocol

Flag protocol specifically prohibits the wearing of the American Flag as apparel. Over Bayview Daze, there were hundreds flaunting that rule.

All of use veterans know better, but apparently it is not taught elsewhere. These actions do not reflect patriotism, but ignorance. Please stop disrespecting our flag.[
