Here in CA and PNW in 1800s, long before BLM and polictal mandates, the indigenous people had enough sense to get rid of dead underbrush so they would not perish during wildfires. Yes, American Indians practiced control burns.. Doh!
Okay, one more acronym for @bykfixer...

In my state they started putting out fires quickly and in the 1980's an entire industry was nearly wiped by a moth. Pine trees supply pulp for paper and planks for building houses in my state. The parks folks wondered why such a big problem with gypsy moths murdering so many pine trees. They discovered where forests had burned the gypsy moth was all but non existent. By 2000 they were allowing burns that controled the moth and the problem was resolved. Lumber companies that own big chunks of land clear the land (and replant) more often as well.

Recent reading indicates she's lost much, if not most, of her allure. Perhaps the future holds promise.

I think any woman in power who’s views make your family less safe by increasing crime instead of protecting people, make your kids dumber in schools by indoctrinating instead of teaching them, make your money worthless by overspending and inflation, make gas cost more by trying to ban it, and hates white people but wants them to pay more taxes has about the same appeal as an ugly witch covered in warts.

If you’re a woman who wants to be appealing to a man, treat his family right, don’t be a gold digger, and feed the guy a decent meal. Show that you care about someone other than yourself. That shows a man you’re a keeper and there is a future potentially to start a family.

Honestly, no joking; I'd rather have the ugly witch covered in warts, instead. (Assuming she treated me right.)

Truth

I've never seen the physical appeal of this so-called 'All Out Crazy' gal although I understand why a lot of fellas would. And as soon as she starts to talk I'm definitely over it.

Politics aside, I've just never found her appealing. Politically she's a flash in the pan. Her fan base are a bunch of people who are never pleased so it should be no surprise they've turned on her.

Is the on/off located in his nostril?

I would think, if its for real, a persons peripheral vision in their good eye would be blinded

Bet he’d be popular at ComicCon. But which superhero would he go as? Eye Wonder.
Oh! The most obscure Spider-Man villain ever.... Jack of Hearts!
He's got one eye. The other one can do massive damage! Usually puts on make-up to cover up the heart tattoo that encompasses his missing eye. Then puts on shades so he blends in with normal people. (I'm not making that up.)

Things you think of sitting at a car dealership

This summer I had a small recall on the brake system in my car (replaced the sensor)
Sitting there, heard a Cage the Elephant tune on the dealership radio station,,

Thought to myself 'wonder how many people here know this is a Cage the Elephant tune'

Due to Covid, put a BS recall on the back burner for awhile. Go back to Garden City Mazda only to discover the small dealership is gone! Bigger one right next door. Same name zero previous staff. Place looks huge and upscale. Short version: Lied to, given the run-around, wasted my time driving down there, only learned the truth because a temp. receptionist made the mistake of being honest with me. One visit, three phone calls to re-schedule. Done! Asked the temp. R to please let the service manager know they lost a regular customer. 12 years at the smaller location literally next door with barely an issue. Fair enough, Mazda has decided in the last 5 years or so to go "upscale." Doing so doesn't mean treating your older working class customers like garbage.

Star Mazda, out of business. Star is a large local chain of dealerships with each one catering to a different brand. Only one of which went out of business. Koeppel Mazda. Still in business. Service center horribly busy because Star shut down. So all those customers went to K. Keep in mind, Mazda dealerships are few and far between. Even in New York. Waited for too long. Went to get my car. One tiny thing left to do. Nice waiting area. Sat. Thought about my life choices. Lady with a small pit-bull sat across from me. Well-behaved doggo. But, took a $#&% on the floor. (The doggo, not me.) Highlight of my Saturday morning.

If you're ever there to get your Mazda serviced, ask for Todd. He's a character. But in a good way. Will say, I miss Mike from G.C. Mazda. And everyone else there who knew how to treat customers properly.
