Democrat Charlie Baker strikes again.

Mass. Gov. Baker: Some Hospitals to Delay Unnecessary Procedures

Massachusetts Republican Gov. Charlie Baker on Tuesday signed an emergency declaration to delay nonessential procedures at some hospitals due to staffing and bed shortages.

The governor outlined in a press release that hospitals that do not have the capacity or staff for patients would have to delay nonessential procedures.

The whole reason the hospitals are having staffing problems is the ‘Mandated’ Covid shot that a lot, a whole lot, of medical professionals refuse to take.  (Ask yourself, why?)  Remove that threat and maybe the staffing shortages will go away.

I used to say that Charlie Baker is the best Democrat Governor in the country,  more and more I think he’s just like the rest.

Primary this guy if he runs for re-election next year, because we now have a good candidate  running for governor.

The level of media idiocy about this holiday is getting to me.

I don’t know about you, but I prefer turkey.  The other-other white meat.

Now about the Media…

Also…

MSNBC: Thanksgiving’s About White Settlers Who Brought ‘Genocide and Violence.’

Many of us are still waiting for white Americans to bring some value — still waiting for white Americans to match the mythology of Thanksgiving. Freedom, justice, equality, reparations for two and a half billion acres of stolen Native land — reparations for 246 years of stolen labor — reparations for stealing Native children. Stop the killing — it’s still happening. Stop the theft — it’s still happening. Return the land — match the mythology. Then, and only then, we can all be equally thankful. Peace.

“Bring some value…”

I guess feeding the world, antibiotics, The Magna Carta, The US Constitution, (painless) dental care, most of your children surviving to adulthood… going to the Moon… don’t count.

Fuck ’em,  Happy Thanksgiving!

Alert — Biden is selling our Strategic Petroleum Reserve to Asia…

According to Bloomberg/Quint:

About 1.6 million barrels of crude from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve — a monthly record — was shipped out in October, according to data from market intelligence firm Kpler.

All three supertankers went to Asia.

Thanks to the supply chain crisis I’ve learned more about the trucking and shipping industry than I wanted to know.

I’ve Been Driving Trucks For 20 Years, I’ll Tell You Why America’s “Shipping Crisis” Will Not End

Authored by Ryan Johnson via Medium.com,

I have a simple question for every ‘expert’ who thinks they understand the root causes of the shipping crisis:

Why is there only one crane for every 50–100 trucks at every port in America?

No ‘expert’ will answer this question.

I’m a Class A truck driver with experience in nearly every aspect of freight. My experience in the trucking industry of 20 years tells me that nothing is going to change in the shipping industry.

Let’s start with understanding some things about ports.

Outside of dedicated port trucking companies, most trucking companies won’t touch shipping containers. There is a reason for that.

Think of going to the port as going to WalMart on Black Friday, but imagine only ONE cashier for thousands of customers. Think about the lines. Except at a port, there are at least THREE lines to get a container in or out. The first line is the ‘in’ gate, where hundreds of trucks daily have to pass through 5–10 available gates. The second line is waiting to pick up your container. The third line is for waiting to get out. For each of these lines the wait time is a minimum of an hour, and I’ve waited up to 8 hours in the first line just to get into the port. Some ports are worse than others, but excessive wait times are not uncommon. It’s a rare day when a driver gets in and out in under two hours. By ‘rare day’, I mean maybe a handful of times a year. Ports don’t even begin to have enough workers to keep the ports fluid, and it doesn’t matter where you are, coastal or inland port, union or non-union port, it’s the same everywhere.

Pushback. Just say No.

9,000 NYC workers miss the Vaccine mandate deadline and 26 FDNY firehouses are out of service.

How California alone caused the supply chain failure.

California Drove Truckers Out of Business. Now Store Shelves Are Empty

Democrat regulations are holding the entire economy hostage.

194 comments

After a long cross-country flight, I made it out of LAX and into an Uber. I wasn’t in the mood to talk, but the driver was. And hearing that I was a journalist, he wanted to tell me a story. I’ve heard a lot of stories over the years, but this may have been the most important one I let go.

He hadn’t always been driving an Uber at 11:30 at night. Not all that long ago he used to have his own business with 7 trucks before he was bankrupted by California’s insane regulations.

I listened, but didn’t pay enough attention. The impact of California’s Democrat legislative supermajority on truckers was just another data point alongside what was happening to freelancers of all kinds and a lot of small businesses. Stories like this were everywhere and there was little interest in them even in conservative circles outside the tarnished golden state.

Back then we still lived in a world where you could walk into a thousand stores with fully stocked shelves. People ordered from Amazon and expected its burgeoning last mile delivery service to make products magically appear overnight. Just in time inventory systems were more efficient and any day now products would be delivered by self-driving cars or aerial drones.

2020 and 2021 have given this Big Tech fantasy world and the rest of us a good kicking.

The massive supply chain mess that’s leaving stores empty and orders unfulfilled doesn’t have a single point of failure, but dozens of them. China’s energy shortages, the overhyped predictive powers of Big Data, the fragility of the global economy, fuel costs, and welfare state worker shortages are all players. But California’s truck bans are a key link in the great failure chain.

Blackout

So glad I don’t live in the all electric house the Democrats want us all to live in.  Their Holy Grail, electricity, has failed.  And I heat my house with the gas fireplace, and recharge my phone in my gasoline fueled car.
