We first started to hear whispers of a virus raising hell in Wuhan China, they were forcing people into isolation and a militarized lockdown in the late fall of 2019, In January we had our first case in America. Short news reports, nothing major…prior to that…then in March the clouds burst, first it was a dozen people in Seatle then thousands followed. Trump didn’t know WTF to do, he had not planned for a pandemic in the midst of an election season thus he was dumbfounded and fumbled the football on the 50 yd. line for hell’s sake. He cost thousands of US lives with his hesitancy to make a plan to battle the virus’s spread and keep people safe So then next came:
**Lockdown 2020, living in isolation, ie. the lockdown #1, long boring days listening to news reports, an idiot president making it worse, Anthony Fauci telling the truth, a fast spreading pandemic costing thousands of US lives, fighting between political parties on how to handle it – or ignore it -, talk of hoaxed, shooting bleach, masks, social distancing, testing, testing, testing, waves 1, 2, 3…now 4. Vaccine deployment by the Biden Administration, nurses and doctors working endlessly, first responders getting burned out, long waits for ambulance service, mass build up of dead bodies, mobile morgues, death. The vaccine roll out starts in January 2021 in fits and starts, Once over 50% are vaccinated people begin to travel again and socialize and wham, wave #4 arrives – the delta variant.
Now it’s August 2021, not only do we have a HUGE problem with Covid we are getting burned out by 18 months of fighting amongst ourselves and watching our country fall apart in so damned many ways. During this 18 mere months we have watched cops kill black men, George Floyd dying in front of our eyes on television, white supremacists kill a white woman (Heather Heyer) in Charlottesville, the march of the white right and the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement, juxtaposition extremes. Racism is on the rise, hate fills so many, fear fills many more. Mass shooting are abundant and gun violence is on the rise faster than ever before. Now we also have the ending of a 20yr war that’s falling apart in front of the whole world as the world cries out in protest while our country cries and the unvaccinated die.
It;s getting old I said, this virus and lockdown shit. And now 99% of the new infections are among unvaccinated individuals, 33% of them children under 12, 58% white, 10% black over 60% Republicans — and they’re hell bent on not stopping this and opening the country for full on intermingling and business. Imperialism.
Boosters available starting on September 20th, doled out once again in order of risk for the virus. I am eligible on Dec 21st. I am frustrated with the deniers, anti-vaxxers and misinformation maniacs. We must become more ACTION oriented with covid – as a whole, united people – to conquer it once and for all.
So, you ask, how was my 2020? Fucked up!!! And now I am really NOT wishing to remain on this path thru the end of 2021, but it looks like that’s the way it will be. There were some good things, like more quiet time to write or read, study and research. I have become enamoured with documentaries and historical content films. I love bonfires on quiet nights, kungering through the woods for firewood beforehand. I’ve enjoyed my hobbies more and time with my dogs. I dream of much better days though, the freedom to travel once again and move around at will without having to stop and go back to the car for a damned facemask.
Make good choices people. Make good choices.

**Throw our Afghanistan problem in for good measure…yeah we can walk and chew gum, sure….not.
What an insane way to start the week…insane conspiracy theories, four of them in 1 day….wow
Check out this video, you will be astonished. The flat out lies are just insane!
Then there was the Fox interview of Trump with Laura whats-her-name…I almost exploded watching him do THIS…!!! The video is about 1/2 way down the page, I think you’ll – if you haven’t SEEN this shit yet – be quite astonished to hear ANY world leader speak of his own people like Trump does here – oh, he has only “one people” his right-wingnuts – then there are the 70% of the residents of the USA that are evidently “thugs” and “antifa” and “dark people lurking”….we are the “enemy”…so buckle up a bit tighter, things are about to go full postal…if you get my gist.
My mind wanders so much more lately, fucking covid overload has made me spacey as fuck it seems – at least some days it does. The air is so thick with sanitizer that I rarely even get dirty thoughts these days…hahaha
My pot plants are doing really good now. We’ve not had enough rain this year, along with the lack of good snow cover last winter – which we depend onto fill the underground aquifers yearly – has resulted in very arid summer. My yard is DUST. The grass all died, turned brown and then the top level of dirt , when you walked on it, would create dust clouds it was so dry. Anyway, I’ve been watering the gardens – both flowers and the weed – every day at least once a day, even fertilized everything a couple of times.
It’s been a tough grow season this year…figures, with everything ELSE going wrong this just adds a little twang of being pissed off at the dry environment…even though it’s OUR faults because of global climate change. My pot plants are the Black Sugar Rose hybrids. I bought female clones but they came in late, so I’m behind on the grow. They’ve been in solid ground since the end of July, previously in pots. Won’t be as big as the last grow, but should be quite impressive, especially in quality and potency. The BSR is GOOD high THC content with a good back up of CBD as well. I love the buzz personally.
I am smoking shatter, live resin or sauce 85% of the time these days, the other 15% I use edibles, which I LOVE! I am glad that they are now making cartridges that fit the multi-voltage batteries (need higher heat) containing the live resin and sauces. They’re just awesome and FAR less labor or mess intensive. No rig, no dip stick, no mess. Screw it on and puff away. Perfection in stoneage, the ultra potency of this type of THC consumption is out of this world. Never in the 1970’s when I started smoking weed from Mexico – the old Columbian Gold days – never did we even imagine that our grandkids would perfect the methods of intense consumption. haha….little fuckers, gotta love ’em tho.
I’ve been perusing the depths of podcasting and off-beat sites, videos and delving into the caldron of like minded individuals from across the country. Vetting news sources right now is critical and absolutely necessary. The forces working to disseminate mis-information to you through Facebook, Twitter and even direct emails. Be aware of TV or internet commercials, the subliminal seduction factor flipped to subliminal fear factor is incredulous. Journalism is a frightening dabble at the moment. Lives are threatened and taken daily, mostly from the truth pool. Voices are quieted, headlines are twisted and YOU are the target; your vote counts so much that Russia wants it to be cast in THEIR desired direction, i.e. Trump the Puppet of Prickhead Putin.
The only interaction I have personally had with any Trump related thing is that I gambled in his casino in Atlantic City in the late 1980s. It was quite opulant, just about to the gawdy point in places. Dripping in gold, and later I found out in blood as well. Many contractors were gilted out of money when he had them build the casino and refused to pay many of them, forcing those who COULD AFFORD IT to try to sue him. You know how Trump lawsuits go, they get dropped. Contractors lost money, lost their businesses in some cases and their families suffered greatly as well.
Anyways, I didn’t stay there, I stayed next door at the Playboy, a very, very favorite memory in my data banks. I was a wet-behind-the-ears baby Butch just learning my walk through the universe as my more authentic self – I was still nervous and yet resolved to be out and proud in my skin and in the world around me. I can vividly recall so many individual “moments” of that 4 days; forever etched into the dark matter in my skull as some of the finest, most sensual and most memorable moments of my young Butch dive into the world of women, money and sex. I would dabble in this world on and off for a couple of decades, which direclty coincide with my good ole drinking days, Jack and Coke with a twist of lime, or Tequila…my go-to alcohol loves. Finally I got to that point in life where you desire deeper, more secure, loyal, loving connections and less frivalty. I have memories from other trips, but none compared to that first time in AC.
I digress….back to the blog and out of the inside of my head….but it’s such a pretty place, the colors, the music…the voices…BWHAHA…kidding….but it IS funny AF. The hazard of writing while stoned. I tend to amuse myself and end up sitting here cracking up as I type.
I just opened a new group on Facebook with some friends assisting in content and collaborating upon which direction we move with the page. I’m fully open to that morphing and twisting through time, all things change, grow and die. I’m psyched about the page in general. I’ve got a tight little team of cohorts and I’m sure I’ll find more fun, creative talent as time chugs on and we all get one day closer to November 3rd.
For anyone interested in joining the group it’s called The Butchuation Room and is a Facebook GROUP not a page, it can be publically located, but it’s a private membership group, just to try to keep things safe for members. I really think it’s going to be an interesting and engaging group. We’re trying out lots of different topics and ways to engage as a community including the use of Zoom meetings and Facebook Rooms. This is NOT a dating site….but I did add a dating topic page just to keep people from posting in the main body of the page with those kinds of searching for others posts.
Here’s my irrational thought of the evening….I think I have the hots for the journalist, Anna, who works on The Young Turks with John. She’s freaking HOT AF…and a blonde, which is interesting for me to find myself attracted to a blonde, not usually my preference. I thinks it’s her incredible vocal control and high intelligence and political awareness coupled with a very hot make up routine. There is no woman more attractive to me than a very smart, intellectual, well versed and knowledgeable smoking hot femme being.
Ok I need to button this blog up, get it posted and get my sleepy ass into lala land, where i can dream of honey on the lips and deep kisses…but before I can go there I need to show you all this particular article on Covid-19 discoveries that are VERY important.
