    And in 1931 we did not have BLM terrorists like Jeffrey Acord…

    For example, earlier on Thursday, September 10th, the State Patrol arrested a Puyallup man who had started a fire along State Route 167 at North Meridian. Apparently, according to this story, this genius was livestreaming on Facebook the fire he had just started, and apparently he had been reported earlier in the day walking along the highway with a lighter.

    He was arrested in Ferguson in 2014…

    KOMO News reported in 2014 about what happened to Acord, noting that he had a knife in his backpack, a box of ammunition, an assault rifle, shotgun, and a box of fireworks. The article said that he admitted to police that he had a loaded gun without a permit, and officers had contacted him after he was seen near his car with a road flare.

    “Dr. Stephen J. Pyne, a wildfire expert and professor in the School of Life Sciences at Arizona State University, writes, ‘In the United States, few places know as much fire today as they did a century ago. Fires have fled from regions like the Northeast that formerly relied on them for farming and grazing. They have receded from the Great Plains, once near-annual seas of flame, ebbing and flowing with seasonal tides. They burn in the South at only a fraction of their former grandeur. They have faded from the mountains and mesas, valleys and basins of the West.'”

    “…Australia’s hottest ever reliable temperature recording was 51.7 degrees Celsius (125 degrees Fahrenheit) at the Bourke Post Office on January 3, 1909. In addition, this year’s bush fires, despite their terrible toll on people and wildlife, are by no means Australia’s largest.

    “Australia’s most widespread fires likely occurred ‘on 13th January 1939 (Black Friday), 2 million hectares burnt with ash reportedly falling on New Zealand. That was probably the worst bush fire catastrophe in Australia’s modern recorded history in terms of area burnt and it was 80 years ago.’”

    It appears that we should sound the alarm about global cooling. Having said that, living in northern Minnesota I’d be ok with global warming.

    “Your Coronavirus Test Is Positive. Maybe It Shouldn’t Be.”

    The PCR test detects fragments of RNA from the virus. It cannot detect live active virus.

    You cannot knowingly have the virus, especially if you do not have any symptoms.

    In the UK we can now visit Sweden without having to quarantine when we get back.
