This is Day 306 of 15 Days to Flatten the Curve and Day 66 of Ohio’s 21-Day WuFlu Curfew. Deb and I are fine.
A brief word about the idiotic curfew… after the governor floated on Thursday that he intended to make it open-ended and indefinite, there was considerable backlash all across Ohio. He may have felt the heat, because yesterday he announced that he was indeed extending the curfew — but just for another week.
He tried to justify the change-of-heart by pointing to his silly color-coding system. Whatever. We can be absolutely sure that he responded to pressure and not facts.
What’ll he do when January 30th rolls ’round? I’m willing to bet that he’ll leave the curfew in place and shorten it by an hour. And he’ll act like he’s doing us an effing favor. Watch and see.
It doesn’t matter, really. No one (with a brain) is paying attention to it anyway.
It’s been months since I’ve been back to the local gun shop where I once worked. Yesterday an e-mail flyer from the store gave me cause to return — a collapsible fire pit ordinarily priced at $120 was on-sale for 50 bucks. Perfect for the bus. Ideal for boondocking. Take my money.
The best part of these visits is seeing folks I used to work with, and much of the time I was in the store I did just that. The place was hopping, too, despite WuFlu restrictions.
I couldn’t resist the urge to cruise the ammo aisles to see if they were as barren as I’d expect these days. They were (pictured). Supplies of certain common rounds were displayed on pallets up near the gun counter, but in much smaller quantities than just a year ago.
And the prices? Do I really have to answer that question?
To be perfectly honest, most of us are over this. We know that the guns-and-ammo market won’t be back to normal — or what it looked like before, at least — anytime soon, if ever.
The Liberty-hating Daffy-Chuckles administration only amps panic and delays the industry’s recovery.
Prices will remain high, supplies low. If you’re fortunate enough to not need a firearm or ammunition — be honest, now — good for you, there’s no reason to buy right now and every reason not to. But if you do need something and can’t wait, shop locally whenever you can. Buy privately. Look for unconventional sources. Do what you have to do, and prepare to pay premium prices.
You do need to be armed, and you do need to train. Product is out there if you know where to look. Get creative, People.
Right-thinking Americans regularly accuse the Left of trying to revise our history, “reimagining” it within a frame of grievance and hate, entitlement and dependency. Apparently just re-writing history wasn’t enough for the Daffy-Chuckles administration — they’re actively working to erase it.
On Wednesday, within hours of taking the oath of office, Daffy C. McHairsniffer signed an “Executive Order On Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities Through the Federal Government.” Buried in Section 10 was this directive:
“(c) Executive Order 13958 of November 2, 2020 (Establishing the President’s Advisory 1776 Commission), is hereby revoked.”
With the stroke of a pen, Daffy dissolved The 1776 Commission and rescinded its report. (On Tuesday I predicted he’d do exactly that.) He and his anti-American administration aim to erase our history, and they didn’t wait long to break out the gasoline and strike the first match.
The 1776 Report no longer is available on The White House website. All evidence of the Trump administration, its pro-America statements and news of its accomplishments have been purged, quickly exiled to a separate domain, trumpwhitehouse.archives.gov.
These are the same people who burn cities, tear down statues and infuse schools with Marxist poison. Now the president is officially burning books.
Still recognize your country?
When I wrote about The 1776 Report the other day, I acknowledged it as flawed — not for its content, but in its execution. The 45-page document remains a correct perspective on America, reflecting the truth of our Founding and our history. This report deserves not to be disappeared but to be preserved, disseminated and taught.
I intend to do my part to make sure that happens.

Before the change-of-regime I grabbed an original copy of The 1776 Report from The White House (Trump) site, and I intend to maintain a copy here on Ubi Libertas. You can avoid pinging government websites and download the pdf directly from this blog by clicking here (or by clicking on the thumbnail image, left).
History is what history is. It can’t be revoked, rescinded or erased. What we do with our American history — the truths we tell, the lessons we learn, the moments we celebrate and the traditions we carry forward — is called heritage. I believe that The 1776 Report, along with programs like Project Appleseed, organizations like The Heritage Foundation and institutions like Hillsdale College, among others, are critical in cultivating that heritage.
You have the tools you need. Now do your part.
Take care of yourselves, Patriots. Stay calm. Stay sharp. Stay free.
