OK, let’s talk…

It’s been a full week since I posted “Crotchety old man…” and my ears are burning. For those of you under 50 that is a saying that goes something like “people have been talking about me” if I remember right. But, you get my point if you read the comments to that crotchety post.

I had no idea that post would garner so much attention, and so many comments. It is the most commented on post on the entire website by an order of magnitude. And it is one of the most viewed pages…even got two views this morning so far.  As for the comments…I’ve read them multiple times to make sure I was hearing what each person had to say. I also responded to each and every comment…even the freak show comment from an even more crotchety old person…and I mean really crotchety. And, I will ignore their comment in the rest of this post.

So let me start off by saying…I had no idea I would get the kind of comments that I did from that post. The comments were quite honestly overwhelming in kindness, support, understanding, and encouragement. I have to get personal here…I was seriously touched and humbled.

Each comment meant something special to me. There were a couple who made observations of me that were eerily too close to truth. I had no idea I exposed myself that much, or maybe they are just very observant, or listen to the spirit really well. And then there was one that reminded me that if my site and my efforts never did anything else but what he referred to…it was all worth it. You see, just a couple years ago he wrote to me and explained he had found Christ, gained a testimony, joined the church, his wife joined the church, they are active in callings at church, and (for you LDS folks) they were sealed in the temple. If there was ever a reason to do something…that is it…help someone come unto Christ.

So you guys get the idea…ya’ll touched me…and I mean really made an impact on my outlook on this website and my time and efforts. It quite honestly surprised me.

So here is what I want to talk about…

  1. The site won’t go dark or go off-line.
  2. I will continue to write.
  3. I will get a plan together to resurrect Escape from Home and get that book back on track.

However, I can’t make any promises on how much writing I will do or how often I will post. I will let the spirit move me, I will let current events dictate, and I will simply do the best I can given my circumstances.

Why the change of heart? Well, I already explained some of it. But, I will be open with you…a series of personal setbacks took place that impacted my outlook. I’ve developed a serious debilitating problem with my right arm. That is my shooting hand/arm and the arm I rely on for my strength. Five years ago I tore up my left shoulder so that arm has its limitations…my right arm is essential to me. I will know more when the test results get back. My feet have taken a turn for the worst and there are days when the pain is really bad just to walk. But, worst of all…my UTV broke! Yeah, I have a 14 year old UTV that is a workhorse around the place. Literally, I use it every day for work, it’s not a pleasure/fun UTV to go joy riding. I haul dirt and rock, firewood, tools, water, etc. and I mean it…I use it every single day at the place for work. Well, it broke. And UTVs do break, especially when they are used as work vehicles. No big deal…I’ll just fix it. I identified the broken part…a mid-prop shaft (imagine two universal joints yoked together). I looked up the part in my Polaris shop manual, called the local dealer with my debit card in hand, and ordered the part. Well, almost. The parts guy told me the news you don’t want to hear…”Sorry sir, they don’t make that part anymore, it’s no longer available.” Yeah, and 5 days of phone calls later trying to find a new one, or even a used, one at a junk yard had proven entirely unsuccessful. Today I meet with a machine shop to see if they can make me a new part. The day I wrote “crotchety” was the day after the unsuccessful search for a replacement part. And the realization that I don’t have $6,000 that it would take to replace that workhorse machine with an equivalent machine. And to top it all off…my wife has a family reunion in early October (yeah, 3 weeks away). Big deal? Well, normally no. But, she’s invited them here to see the new house and what we’ve done with the 40 acres. Am I anywhere near ready for her showing the place off? Ah, no…and the pressure mounts.

But, all of this is called life…and pales in comparison to what I know some of you are going through. How do I know that? Because I know some of ya’ll personally and I know there are much worse circumstances out there for some of you.

Now, what I want to do is hear from you guys. I am posting a form below and I am going to ask you two questions:

  1. What types/kinds of articles would you like to see me concentrate on?
  2. What types/kinds of articles would you like to see me not write?

The answers will help me immensely as I try to figure out where my time is best spent.

Also, I am asking for names and email addresses on the form. First, don’t worry, I am not going to abuse that information or sell it or anything of the sort. I have something cooking in my head and having that information to connect with you would be important.

The last “comment” on the form is for any personal message, good or bad, you wish to share with me.

Again, thank you for the incredible comments, thoughts, feelings, compliments, and encouragements that you shared with me. They meant something to me, they meant a lot.

AH Trimble Feedback and Comments

 

In response to my Immediate Action Warning this morning I received this passionate response…


OK, what exactly would be a correct response by government or individuals?
The police have abandoned large areas of several cities. They either can not or will not do anything. How many burglaries, assaults, robberies, rapes, and murders have been committed in the police no-go zones? How many scores settled?
Does this sound like France, Sweden, or Germany?

If troops, whether Guard or Regulars, are deployed (in spite of Posse Comitatus), will they have empty rifles?
For how many years was the traditional ROE for troops and civilians in disaster areas “You loot, we shoot”? Would you expect them to NOT shoot? Easy to say, if you are not in the line of men facing a mob. If not that, then what? Allow the mob to beat them down and take their select-fire weapons, or pull out and once again leave the streets and neighborhoods to the looters? No good choices, but which is worse?
Not making a choice is still a choice.
Civilians too will be quickly overwhelmed by sheer numbers unless they use deadly force, and at least one pawnshop owner (yes, a white guy) was arrested. After the arrest, the store was gutted. In law, in every jurisdiction I’m aware of, shooting to stop arson is a justifiable use of deadly force, as is the disparity of force of being faced by a mob. Apparently, MN has a “duty to retreat” law everywhere- except a domicile, so the choices for business owners are death, destitution, or jail.
https://heavy.com/news/2020/05/john-rieple/
How about these men, (who I’d side with and you will not find this on youtube)? Would they be arrested as quickly as the white pawn owner?
https://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhhB2w3tSuRIVkX79A
Is the only alternative to simply leave the law-abiding at the mercy of the mob?
Just sayin’.
I wonder if the mayor and other members of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (yes really) have any idea what they are creating?
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Democratic%E2%80%93Farmer%E2%80%93Labor_Party)
Who will tolerate a place where the cops only arrest the basically law-abiding non-violent “offender”, and the citizens are not allowed to defend either their property or themselves. Governors and mayors of the progressive blue states cry about the flight of the tax base, as they become ever more greedy and tyrannical, but so far, their only solution is to demand more bailouts and blame Trump for their own failings.


A lengthy and provocative post to be sure. But, it is also a tough post to respond to based on a number of factors; 1) passion, 2) straw-man arguments, 3) inaccurate/false set of choices, 4) presentation of binary choices,etc. So, I thought I would respond to some of the more specific issues raised to ensure clarification of my position and provide food for thought to readers. I will reproduce his post and then embed my thoughts/responses. But please, don’t let this sidetrack you from the purpose of the warning and actions to take.

OK, what exactly would be a correct response by government or individuals? (It was the government that caused the problem to begin with. It was one of them that killed the man. So the government is responsible for the problem. I am not saying that to excuse any behavior of the looters, but they didn’t just start looting out of thin air. The foundation of the problem is rooted in the government there.)
The police have abandoned large areas of several cities. They either can not or will not do anything. (I am not sure if that is true or not. I have no information that there is an official policy or such direction by local government leadership.) How many burglaries, assaults, robberies, rapes, and murders have been committed in the police no-go zones? (No idea, nor does anyone else know what those numbers are…if any.) How many scores settled? ? (No idea, nor does anyone else know what those numbers are…if any.)
Does this sound like France, Sweden, or Germany? (To me it sounds like a police force that allowed an officer to stay on the force WAY too long and other officers who stood by and watched one of their own kill a man. And it sounds like a subset of the population who are frustrated beyond my ability to comprehend it. And violence and destruction that should not be taking place. It sounds like the USA to me…I saw it many times over the decades going all the way back to the civil rights movement.)

If troops, whether Guard or Regulars, are deployed (in spite of Posse Comitatus), will they have empty rifles? (I can’t imagine they would have empty rifles and would not want them to have such. Putting troops in harm’s way and then not allowing them to defend themselves is unconscionable. Putting troops in the streets armed to the teeth is even more unconscionable.)
For how many years was the traditional ROE for troops and civilians in disaster areas “You loot, we shoot”? (No idea since I am not aware of and have not done research on all of those incidents.) Would you expect them to NOT shoot? (My primary opinion of shooting to kill is in defense of life.) Easy to say, if you are not in the line of men facing a mob. (It is easy to say! Because ALL people are free to have their own opinion and to state such. Lack of opinion, morals, ethics, and principles is a sure way to crash a society.) If not that, then what? Allow the mob to beat them down and take their select-fire weapons, or pull out and once again leave the streets and neighborhoods to the looters? (Of course not!) No good choices, but which is worse? (You are setting up a binary choice…and that is extremely limited thinking…tunnel vision at its worse. Allow locals to make the right outcome…not someone in Washington, not me sitting in my chair, and no one else unless they are directly involved.)
Not making a choice is still a choice. (No one ever suggested that. But assuming only binary answers to a situation is worse idea.)
Civilians too will be quickly overwhelmed by sheer numbers unless they use deadly force, and at least one pawnshop owner, yes, a white guy, was arrested. (You are speaking in absolutes and from passion. I understand that but it is quicksand foundation for developing a workable solution to the problem.) After the arrest, the store was gutted. In law, in every jurisdiction I’m aware of, shooting to stop arson is a justifiable use of deadly force, as is the disparity of force of being faced by a mob. (You are talking post-event not at the moment. And I am not familiar with the situation so I will refrain from responding more.) Apparently, MN has a “duty to retreat” law everywhere- except a domicile, so the choices for business owners are death, destitution, or jail. (Once again you are writing from a passionate perspective. “Duty to retreat” is a de-escalation tactic. Leaving the area rather than killing someone, or many people, makes sense in almost every situation…if you highly value life and its potential. Killing in self-defense is a God-given right and should not be suppressed, ever. So duty-to-retreat for a business owner means…life, insurance claims, clear conscious, and a plan to recover…NOT “death, destitution, or jail”!)
https://heavy.com/news/2020/05/john-rieple/ (Not familiar with the situation and it has zero bearing/impact on my opinion and viewpoint regardless of the facts in the matter. I was not respond to or write about a pawn shop owner.)
How about these men, who I’d side with and you will not find this on youtube? Would they be arrested as quickly as the white pawn owner?
https://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos/video.php?v=wshhhB2w3tSuRIVkX79A
Is the only alternative to simply leave the law-abiding at the mercy of the mob? (If the media reporting is accurate…I applaud these folks!!!! They are the property owners and have rights. I hope they are well-informed and know what they are doing. If they kill someone there will be legal issues and a life-time of second-guessing and dealing with taking a life…probably PTSD to some degree. That could be a heavy burden. I hope they are trained in all aspects of dealing with this kind of a situation and not just acting out of passion of fulfilling some fantasy of who they think they are.)
Just sayin’.
I wonder if the mayor and other members of the Minnesota Democratic Farmer Labor Party (yes really) have any idea what they are creating? (No. Unquestionably “No!” That city has been out of control for decades. They have a police force that has been out of control for just as long…a police force that they have created and allowed to act as outlaws in many situations over the years. Officer Derek Chauvin has a long documented history of inappropriate and lawless behavior while on their police force. And that police force and city leadership allowed it to continue…if not encouraged it. They bear the blame, the burden, and should receive justice as well.)
( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minnesota_Democratic%E2%80%93Farmer%E2%80%93Labor_Party)
Who will tolerate a place where the cops only arrest the basically law-abiding non-violent “offender”, and the citizens are not allowed to defend either their property or themselves. (That is rhetorical in nature and not applicable to this situation at all. But if you are speaking more generally…then the answer is a simple…”no” ) Governors and mayors of the progressive blue states cry about the flight of the tax base, as they become ever more greedy and tyrannical, but so far, their only solution is to demand more bailouts and blame Trump for their own failings. (And that displays their cowardice, lack of morals/ethics, and an absence of leadership. And oh so typical of who they are. Sad!)


This is why these kinds of situations are very volatile…and they seldom have good outcomes…only destruction and sadness…seldom a positive solution. It is also why people should be very slow to react to these situations unless they are directly involved in a life-death situation! Taking a hasty and ill-thought out action can result is damning decisions that will haunt the average person for the rest of their lives.

All of this being said…PLEASE go back a read the Warning and understand its purpose and not get sidetracked by a backseat issue/principle. Stick with what is important in the message.

“As far as the NRA…
From the NFA of 1934 to the so called “bump-stock ban”, the NRA has supported every single gun control measure ever enacted.
In every case they called it “compromise” legislation and folded like a cheap tent.”

Later in the day he wrote again…

This SCOTUS ruling (November 9, 1942) is known as “Wickard v Filburn”. This was where wheat grown by Mr. Filburn, on his own land, for his own cattle was declared part of “interstate commerce” and therefore was subject to the whim of government regulators. It was one of the first and worst of the rulings destroying our right to private property.
It should have been no surprise.
This was only a few months after FDR signed Executive Order 9066 (February 19, 1942), which allowed interning Americans of Japanese descent and stripping private property from them without trial.


note from AH Trimble: Glad to see people know real history and no the propaganda crap pumped out of the government and other organizations!

Thank you. This fits what we need to know right now. All things seem to be in commotion. Many do not realize the danger we all face with this virus panic.  We need to be aware of where we are and what is happening around us all the time. This is not only a pandemic it is also a power grab from us to them. If successful, we can find ourselves more enslaved than we already are. As some have said “arm up carry on”

Freedom is NOT a non-essential. It was only a few months ago when Christians and conservatives would often use this quote from Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Hardly any of them are using that quote today. Instead, they are expressing enthusiastic endorsement for the assaults against their liberties—in the name of SAFETY from corona.

More than that: They are frothing venom and hatred against anyone who dares to stand up for our constitutional liberties. These conveniently confused Christians and conservatives are regurgitating the very words and ideas that the Tories expressed toward our American patriot forebears. Recall that the great champion of liberty, the Rev. James Caldwell of New Jersey, was assassinated by a fellow American loyal to the tyrannous British Crown. These modern Tories would be happy to do the same thing to those preachers standing for freedom right now.

I know, because I receive and hear their hate-filled threats almost daily. Do you not find it interesting that the same Trump-worshipping Christians and conservatives who for the last three years kept telling us that the mainstream media (MSM) was “fake news” are now aggressively attacking anyone who doesn’t buy what the MSM is saying about the coronavirus? Talk about blatant two-facedness!

Make no mistake about it: We are in the beginning of a war against our liberties that will not subside until the American people decide, AGAIN, that essential liberty is more valuable than temporary safety.

As loudly as I know how to say it: FREEDOM IS NOT A NON-ESSENTIAL!!

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn regards to to my post Hoax Alert: Coronavirus could kill 81,000 in U.S.posted on 3/28 (click here)

Barry writes…

“While I appreciate your alerts, I’m not sure that this qualifies as a hoax. This model could turn out to be accurate. The deaths due to Covid-19 in the U.S. are growing exponentially. We all hope that doesn’t continue, that as the weather warms up this thing slows down, that treatments like chloroquine work, and that other successful treatments are discovered along with a vaccine.”


My full response…

It is a hoax…in my opinion. They took a snap-shot sample of data in the MOST infected area of the country, during a time when it was growing the most rapidly for their model. There are several articles that were almost immediately published that have already discredited their report. But yes, there is always the chance that their model will be correct…but it is a mighty slim chance. And I am sure both of us hope they are wrong.

So, that being said…can we agree it is a very probable hoax?

And as a side note…..How many people in the US died from the flu in the 2017/2018 flu season?
Answer: 80,000 according to the CDC. Kinda interesting perspective.

Also, another note: The reason COVID-19 will more than likely slow down (as all flu does) as summer approaches is the sun. Flu viruses are very susceptible to UV (ultraviolet) light…it kills the virus. But, a word of caution, the Spanish Flu also died down during the summer, then came roaring back that fall.


Barry responded to my response…

“If you are modeling a hurricane in the Gulf do you use weather data from the Pacific North West? If you are trying to model an outbreak doesn’t it make sense to model the area currently getting hit the hardest? We can hope other areas don’t get hit as hard but the pattern will probably be similar. All areas being hit will experience their own curve.

At this time the average flu numbers look much worse. However we’re still early in the cycle and still on the way up on the bell-shaped curve. The number of cases and deaths are doubling every few days.”


My response to Barry’s response to my response to his feedback…

Great questions and somber words to ponder!

If you are modeling a hurricane in the Gulf you use Gulf data because the model’s projections only apply to that specific hurricane, in that specific location, during that specific time-frame, based on a very specific snapshot of data. So, we agree on that. So you can’t predict hurricanes in the Pacific Northwest based on data from the Gulf of Mexico. Entirely different data set (i.e. location, environment, temperatures, winds, tides, ocean currents, etc.) applies.

So any projections of the COVID-19 based on the state of Washington would only apply to the state of Washington (or general geographic area). And that would only be true if the data snapshot they used for the model was valid and reliable (i.e. credible). I am posting an article today that shows that these guys, and most so-called “experts”, are using math projections that are entirely wrong…”by orders of magnitude”.

But getting back to my point, no projections based on Washington data applies to anywhere else. Well, maybe to Oregon due to its close proximity. But, if the data snapshot came from an urban area of Washington alone, then the projections wouldn’t even apply to the rural areas of the state of Washington due to significant social differences (i.e. space between homes/property, number of daily interactions with people, contact with contaminated surfaces, healthier life style, etc.).

“...the pattern will probably be similar…” Again, no area where COVID-19 has appeared repeats the exact outbreak pattern or the same statistical numbers. So no, I don’t believe the pattern will be the same because that has not been the case so far. Similar? Maybe. But so far, the differences in pattern are greater than the similarities in pattern.

“All areas being hit will experience their own curve.” Absolutely true! And in each area, as more data becomes available, it is proving that statement to be true about experiencing their own specific bell curve. So each area is different in all aspects…with one exception…it appears that ALL mortality rates are grossly overstated. It appears now, based on the entire outbreak data pool and accurate application of mathematical formulas, that the true mortality rate could be somewhere between .1% to .06%, with the more accurate estimate closer to the .06%. However, if it is indeed as bad as the .1%, then the COVID-19 mortality rate matches a normal flu season outbreak’s mortality rate. And those numbers are almost certain to change as more valid and reliable data becomes available.

“The number of cases and deaths are doubling every few days.” Well, not entirely accurate. While the number of reported deaths are doubling approximately every four days may be somewhat accurate. We have absolutely no idea how many new cases there are…not even a clue. Why? Because; 1) there are simply not enough test kits, 2) many people who contract COVID-19 never show symptoms, 3) many people who show symptoms never have them severe enough to go to a doctor or the hospital, 4) many people who go to a doctor or the hospital never get tested because there aren’t enough test kits, 5) there are numbers now showing that, depending on the brand/type of test kit, there could be result error rates from 30 – 50%. So we still don’t have a good picture of accurate numbers…and probably won’t until well after the COVID-19 issues passes. And then it will still be estimates…albeit better informed estimates.

Thank you again Barry for the great interaction. I appreciate your free thinking and willingness to engage. Please keep it coming. While we both may have our opinions set in-place…others may benefit from our exchanges.

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsIn regards to the Just Water Filter information I posted on 3/27 (click here > > IMPORTANT ! – Monolithic Water Filters  )

  • Duana writes…

“These are the filters my group here in Texas has been buying for several years. I love them!!”

 

  • Scott writes…

“Are these as good as Berkey brand filters?”

I responded…

In my opinion they are as good or better…and far less expensive!
My research of laboratory results shows it removes 85 – 90% of all insecticides, herbicides, pesticides. It removes 96 – 99% of metals. It removes 99.999 – 100% of all the ugly virus and bacteria junk. It removes 98% of all particles greater than .2 microns. It even removes Anthrax! Berkey filters run about $120 per pair. Just Water filters can be bought for about $40 each. Substantial price difference! And the Just Water filters are to be installed in regular buckets…even plastic trash cans! You can install one filter or 10. The more filters the higher the flow rate.

These filters remove:
> 99% Arsenic 5 and 99% Arsenic 3 (special order)
> 99% Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S)
> 95% Chlorine and Chloramines
> 99% Taste
> 99% Odor
> 98% Aluminum
> 96% Iron
> 98% Lead
> 90% Pesticides
> 85% Herbicides
> 85% Insecticides
> 90% Rodenticides
> 85% Phenols
> 85% MTBE
> 85% Perchlorate
> 80% Trihalomethanes
> 95% Poly Aromatic Hydrocarbons
> 99.999% of particles larger than 0.5 micron (Staffordshire University Labs) (includes Anthrax)
> 99.7% of particles larger than 0.3 micron (Staffordshire University Labs)
> 98% of particles larger than 0.2 micron (Staffordshire University Labs)
> 100% Giardia Lamblia
> 100% Cyclospora
> 100% removal of live Cryptosporidium (WRc Standard)
> 100% removal of Cryptosporidium (NSF Standard 53 – A.C. fine dust – 4 log challenge)
> 100% removal of E. Coli, Vibrio Cholerae (Johns Hopkins University)
> 99.999% removal of Salmonella Typhil, Shigella Dysenteria, Kiebsiella Terrigena (Hyder Labs)

And this filter system comes with a great list of laboratories that certify how good it is:
National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 42
National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) Standard 53
ISO 9002 Quality Standard
USA AEL Laboratories
USA Analytical Food Laboratories
USA Johns Hopkins University
British 5750 Quality Standard
England’s Water Research council (WRc)

My local grocery store has made 6 am to 9 am for seniors only. I guess so they can shop without being tramped. People are scared acting. I hope the grabbing of mega amounts of stuff goes away and people shop like they normally would. My daughter asked me if I ever filled my shopping cart like she is seeing and I told her no, that we have always been fortunate to have a grocery store close by. I do have some extra food but I bought it a few extra cans at a time. I don’t think my kids are going back to school after this break and i think my work is closing up soon. Staying away from people for a while would be a wise precaution.

AH Trimble Feedback and CommentsJohn writes…

Mr Trimble, It’s past time for all of us to rise to the occasion and do something positive. My wife and I had a similar conversation as you had with your wife. It’s time to get over the panic and do something proactive to make this situation better. My wife is a seamstress, an avid quilter, and like most quilter’s she has a huge supply of fabric. She decided to go online to find out how to sew face masks for our first responders. She found a youtube video and now she is already up in her sewing room doing something to help lessen the shortage of masks.

I have decided to contact my nearest neighbors, to check on how they are doing, find out if there anything they need, and is there anything they can share. I will widen my circle of contact and if I find a neighbor in need perhaps I can pair them with a neighbor who has a surplus. We can start conversations and be the catalyst to help our neighbors overcome the shortages. By doing this, I am certain we will become closer to our neighbors, while still practicing social distancing.

Of course, the ultimately goal is to beat coronavirus! But, we can’t allow social distancing to separate us from our friends.
