Thursday, I Can See The Weekend, Motes

Just asking: Does anybody really care if Jane Fonda doesn’t want to get married at 83? Me neither. Does anybody care? I didn’t think so.

Give it a watch: Watched a pretty good movie last weekend. We watched “The Sapphires”, the story of 4 Aboriginal girls that became big stars touring Viet Nam in 1968. Based on Tony Briggs 2004 play of the same name,The Sapphires” is a film is loosely based on a true story. Like many films “loosely based on a true story” there are characters and situations that didn’t happen, but it is still an enjoyable and entertaining date night film.

Elections have consequences: “Mad Maxine Waters Libeled Navy Vet As ‘Dishonorably Discharged, Now She’s Losing In Court.” We’ve heard a lot of overheated rhetoric from Mad Maxine Waters over the years. She calls people racist without any evidence. When Joe Collins(R) brought legal action against her, she ignored it as some sort of a campaign stunt, letting it go unanswered. Now she is scrambling, because she’s already lost in court. She will have to answer just about any question Collins wants to ask her, and she will be “under oath”. Guys, “under oath” is not Wonder Woman’s magic lasso. Waters will do as she has always done; lie, obfuscate, deflect, and not answer. But this time it just might “circle back” and bite her. We can only hope.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Change my mind.

And this surprises who: Well, you don’t have to worry anymore that the Muslim holy month of Ramadan might catch the “First Couple of the Media Elites” unprepared. The Obama have “announced a new season of their Higher Ground podcast called “Tell Them, I Am,” which will feature a collection of narratives from Muslim voices.” The podcast will be loaded to the brim with “diversity,” except in any of the ways that it actually counts. What happened to former-presidents that just stayed “former”.

Lower case letters on purpose: fbi director  Chris Wray said there was NO EVIDENCE of “fake Trump supporters” present at the US Capitol that day. The fbi investigation completely ignored BLM and Antifa posting photos bragging online about storming the US Capitol and Antifa-BLM organizer John Sullivan bragging about wearing a MAGA hat during the riots where he broke a window and stormed the US Capitol. Obviously, the once-great fbi and Chris Wray cannot be trusted.

Doctor Seuss bad, Drag Queen story-hour good. Huh?

Wednesday Motes, Looking For Friday.

Just a hint, duct tape isn’t good to use for your bikini wax.

Use their rules: The left-wing Time’s Up organization has decided to turn on  Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) in calling for an investigation of the credible sexual misconduct allegations made against the disgraced governor by two former staffers. Earlier this week, Lindsey Boylan, Cuomo’s deputy secretary for economic development for a little more than three years, starting in March of 2015, added troubling details to her allegations that Cuomo “sexually harassed me for years.” And nobody believed Tara Reade. Does anybody remember who Tara accused?

Woke, or just dumb:You really want the world to hate you? Write a hit piece on Dolly Parton. Constance Grady, VOX , did just that, claiming Dolly is a “dark” person because she’s just too good to be true. I once spent about 20 minutes talking with Dolly at her restaurant in Hawaii Kai. Absolutely one of my fondest memories of time spent with a genuine lady, with emphasis on “LADY”. Hey Grady, stfdastfu.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. There is no evidence otherwise.

Justice is blind, and stupid: A St. Louis, Mo., family court judge, Nicole Zellweger, has launched an all-out judicial assault on Angela Freiner and her minor daughter, who are refusing her order to make the 14-year-old girl return to the man who she says sexually molested her. When the child refused to consent, the judge threatened to arrest her mother. The child reported the alleged abuse to her school counselor and Child Protective Services in Montana. Zellweger still ruled to send her to live with the father full-time, in spite of the allegations of abuse the child made in Montana and in her own courtroom. The documents also reveal that the father has a criminal record and is on probation for domestic abuse. The judge sided with a convicted abuser over a mom who smokes pot and let her daughter have a nose piercing. About time they started looking at their judge’s judgment.

Ahhh, smell the pork: The new “Covid Stimulus” bill is such a perfect example of pork stuffing by politicians, and they are all guilty of it. But nobody is better than Nancy Pelosi. She was “elected” to “represent” the State of Calipornia and has become one of the most powerful individuals in the US government. I’m not sure who she really represents, but she manages to move about $112 million to “Pelosi’s subway”. This refers to a project to extend the Bay Area Rapid Transit System into downtown San Jose — which is an hour south of San Francisco and the district Speaker Nancy Pelosi represents. The project is actually in the district of another Democrat. Two hundred and twenty House Democrats voted to block Rep. Stepanie Bice’s (R-OK) motion. Bice’s proposal is to strike funding for Pelosi’s subway tunnel through Silicon Valley, and instead, provide $140 million to support mental health suicide prevention in states where children do not have in-person teaching. But they represent you. Right?

We don’t need no stinkin’ proof: Alyssa Milano floated a Nazi conspiracy theory directed toward the organizers of CPAC, suggesting that they deliberately fashioned the main stage to match the shape of a Nazi symbol. To my knowledge, she wasn’t in attendance, and has no proof, but that doesn’t matter. RACIST…..NAZI…..Oh, and if you “sponsor” and kind of conservative event, you will be  immediately called for a boycott. A ‘symbol” is exactly what you see in it. Since Alyssa is the one that sees a NAZI emblem, maybe she is the Nazi? Just sayin’.

Meandering Tuesday Motes

A couple of thoughts;

How about we pass a bill that says everything in a bill must pertain to that bill. You know, no funding millions for “gender studies” in Whocaresistan included in a “School Milk Bill”. Because let’s face it, nobody will vote against “school milk”. Doing away with pork in these would not only save money, your tax dollars, but reveal who is supporting what. A politician would have to place his name on the bill, and concerned constituents would be able to find out who their representatives really represent.

How about next election, we get candidate’s that actually tell us what they stand for, where they stand on the things that matter, and perhaps tell us what makes them different from the other candidate(s) running. No more “ghost” campaigns and name recognition elections. Actually, have candidates that have to articulate their position

Coke is woke: Now Coke is asking employee’s to be “less white”. My answer is; I can’t be less white, so I’ll just make Coke less green. I’ll go to Pepsi.

It happens: Two police officers in the Philippines were killed in a shootout with other federal agents during a botched undercover drug bust, according to official state media Philippine News Agency . Three other agents were also wounded in the confrontation and hospitalized. The exact circumstances of the shooting are not yet clear. Years ago, I worked with a guy that had been shot in the azz, by another cop, while working undercover. It’s a hazard for all undercovers.

What if people stop using (        )hyphen American, you know; Afro-American, Japanese-American, Martian-American, and we all become AMERICAN.

Ashli Babbitt was murdered. Convince me otherwise.

Too many cooks: Over thirty House Democrats are asking President Biden to consider renouncing his authority to launch nuclear weapons. In a letter sent Tuesday 31 lawmakers urge the commander in chief to “consider modifying the decision-making process the United States uses in its command and control of nuclear forces.” So they make to make everything “by committee”. I guess “commander in chief” will be replaced with “committee head”.

They write themselves: The Chinese government has used anal swabs to test US diplomats for COVID-19 – but Beijing insisted to Washington that the butt checks were made “in error,” according to a report. I’m not commenting. But the Chinese government has promised to stop using anal swabs on American diplomats to test for COVID-19 after Washington complained that the practice was undignified. This is too funny on its own. BOHICA (Ask your favorite vet.)

Monday Motes. Again? Already?

Makes no sense: HBO is not pulling Woody Allen movies, despite the current documentary saying he molested and/or abused his children. HBO says the “viewers” can judge. However, several of the “Muppet’s” episodes have been removed by Disney because they are “adult”. Huh?

The law should be the law, and applied evenly to all. All are innocent until proven guilty by a preponderance of evidence. Not overwhelming sound and fury.

Here we go again: House Finance Committee Chairwoman Sylvia Luke said Monday she is determined to restore funding to a number of state programs the administration has targeted for cuts. Luke also said she is ready to consider increasing the state capital gains tax and boosting state income taxes on “higher-income residents” to raise money for the changes she wants to make.(Hawaii Civil Beat 2/24) And once again there is no definition of “higher-income”. Ige wants to tax the “wealthier” residents. He didn’t define that either.

No OSHA: At least 6,500 migrant workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka have died during the 10-year construction of Qatar’s 2022 World Cup facilities due to shoddy work conditions and lack of training. The shocking figure is likely grossly underestimated because no figures are available for migrant workers from Kenya of the Philippines.

Ashli Babbitt’s murderer is still unidentified.

Hang ‘em high: An Iranian woman who was sentenced to hang for the killing of her husband died from a heart attack, but was strung up anyway, according to her lawyer. The Times, U.K. reports Zahra Ismaili collapsed while waiting in line behind 16 other convicts for her turn to be executed. Ismaili’s attorney, Omid Moradi, said his dead client was hanged as a measure of deference to the victim’s family. Sorry, that’s just freakin’ barbaric.

A final thought: Let me see if I got this right; I’m walking your dogs, two guys drive up, shoot me 4 times, take two of the dogs, drive off leaving me to bleed out on the sidewalk, and you offer a reward for the return of the dogs “no questions asked.” I have that right? Get another walker, I’m done.

Sunday Rant

From Jeff Cooper, Principles of Personal Defense

Principle Two:
Decisiveness
It is difficult for a domesticated man to change in an
instant into one who can take quick, decisive action to meet
a violent emergency. Most of us are unused to violent
emergencies-especially those which can only be solved by
the use of force and violence on our part-and these emergencies
require a parturient effort of will to transform ourselves
from chickens into hawks. Decisiveness, like alertness,
is to some extent a built-in characteristic, but, also
like alertness, it can be accentuated. In formalized combat it
is supplied-or it should be-by appropriate orders from
above. In cases of personal defense, it must be selfgenerated,
and this is the problem.
When “the ball is opened”-when it becomes evident
that you are faced with violent physical assault-your life
depends upon your selecting a correct course of action and
carrying it through without hesitation or deviation. There
can be no shilly-shallying. There is not time. To ponder is
quite possibly to perish. And it is important to remember
that the specific course you decide upon is, within certain
parameters, less important than the vigor with which you
execute it. The difficulty is that the proper course of action,
when under attack, is usually to counterattack. This runs
contrary to our normally civilized behavior, and such a decision
is rather hard for even an ordinarily decisive person
to reach.
Short of extensive personal experience, which most of
us would rather not amass, the best way to cultivate such
tactical decisiveness is through hypothesis: “What would I
do if . . . ?” By thinking tactically, we can more easily
arrive at correct tactical solutions, and practice-even
theoretical practice -tends to produce confidence in our
solutions which, in turn, makes it easier for us, and thus
quicker, to reach a decision.
English common law, the fountainhead of our juridical
system, holds that you may use sufficient force and violence
to prevent an assailant from inflicting death or serious
injury upon you-or your wife, or your child, or any other
innocent party. You may not pursue your attacker with
deadly intent, and you may not strike an unnecessary blow,
but if someone is trying to kill you, you are justified in
killing him to stop him, if there is no other way. This is
putting it about as simply as possible, and since the law
here is eminently reasonable, the legal aspects of personal
defense need not detain us in formulating a proper defensive
decision. We must be sure that our assailant is trying to
kill or maim us, that he is physically capable of doing so,
and that we cannot stop him without downing him. These
conditions can usually be ascertained in the blink of an eye.
Then we may proceed. (Incidentally, rape is generally considered
“serious injury” in this connection. A man who
clearly intends rape may thus be injured or killed to prevent
the accomplishment of his purpose, if no lesser means will
suffice.)
So, when under attack, it is necessary to evaluate the
situation and to decide instantly upon a proper course of
action, to be carried out immediately with all the force you
can bring to bear. He who hesitates is indeed lost. Do not
soliloquize. Do not delay. Be decisive.

Saturday Story

The Best of Intentions

I attended the 55 th. Recruit class of the Honolulu Police Department. At that time, 1970, we were the largest recruit class ever attempted.

This was before there was an actual “police academy”. We attended classes at the old Army Reserve building on 22nd ave near Kaimuki Intermediate School. In fact, we used the school field for some of the physical training.

We practiced “unarmed combat” and self- defense techniques at the Hawaii Aikido Dojo on Wailae Ave and 6th street. We practiced take downs, holds, and “chokes”. With several experienced martial artists in the class this training produced some rather mixed results.

I’d already had almost 2 years overseas and over 2 years of off base military police experience with H.A.S.P., so as far as the take downs and holds I was pretty well versed. As far as the “choke”, I was as good as anyone and a lot better than most. I had gotten lots of “practice” and I was really damn good at “taking them out” with what is now called the “rear naked” choke.

Class academics consisted of 50 minute classes held in a large room on the second floor of the building. We went to class from 7 am until 4 pm or later if the speaker ran over time. Speaker after speaker. No computer’s, no Power Point.

Some speakers were actual serving officers, others were guest lecturers, and professional whatever’s. There didn’t appear to be a really cohesive curriculum, but I probably missed the bigger picture. Having been through basic training, Air Force Air Police training, and Air Force N.C.O. training I felt I was a couple of steps ahead of most of my classmates. This did cause a strain in some of my class relationships. Entirely my fault, but it was how I felt.

There were several other military veterans in the class, but the majority were young men, no women, looking for a career “on the job”. All I ever wanted was to be a police officer.

Some of the non-vets were really not prepared for the real world they were about to enter. One young man that sat next to me was the son of a local photographer and studio owner. Basically a very nice, but naïve, young man. He was one of those not really ready.

The breaking point came in a “Sex Crimes” class.  The detective giving the class started passing out crime scene photos. There were actual scene photos and were graphic to say the least.

The class was the last of the day and as the pictures came to my classmate, he would give a quick glance and pass the picture on to the next guy. But, he did look at them. He made a quiet comment about, “People don’t really do this”. The detective overheard and responded, “Yes. And much worse”.

That classmate dropped out the next morning and went back to work in his father’s photography studio.

We weren’t issued badges or firearms until late in training cycle and one student made a good example of why. It was unknown why and totally out of policy, but he tried to stop a vehicle on the freeway by waving his own handcuffs at the driver. He was dismissed the next day. At that time, a recruit could be dismissed for almost no reason at all, but they usually let you hang yourself.

Over the following years the 55th Recruit class lost several graduates. One graduate was lost when he was shot while pursuing an escaped felon. The injury was such that he never returned. Another was arrested for having a sexual relationship with an underage “Explorer Scout”, several left HPD to join other, better paying mainland departments, 2 went on to join the F.B.I., several others have been arrested and fired for theft, drugs, assault, burglary, and one even for being overweight and not making the cut 6 months after graduation.

In other words, all the same stuff that any cross section of humanity would display.

I do not know how many from that class actually completed a full career, but we all started with the best of intentions.

Friday, Yeeeyyy. About Time.

Do right nobody remembers; Do wrong, nobody forgets.

Let’em do their job: Law enforcement officials in Arizona said Friday that an operation targeting sexual predators yielded 34 arrests. The multi-agency effort, dubbed “Operation Broken Hearts,” focused on predators who are alleged to have committed sex crimes or human trafficking. Uncle Joe wants to stop ICE and boarder enforcement.

Just ask AOC: On Monday, February 15th, 84-year old Mary Gee reportedly lost power in her northeast Houston apartment. It is believed that Mary Gee froze to death sometime in the overnight hours, and according to her family, they discovered her body, along with the police the following morning. As if that weren’t enough, less than one day after Gee’s body was found, robbers reportedly broke into the Northshore Meadows apartment complex and took off with the elderly woman’s belongings. According to her family, the thieves grabbed Gee’s television, stereo, phone and her son’s army badges. And it’s all because Texas isn’t “green” enough.

It is a crime: On January 6th, 2021, Ashli Elizabeth Babbitt was executed by a Capitol Police Officer who seemed to hold no restraint. 50 days later, the Capitol Police Officer responsible has been identified in photos before and during the shooting. The Police Lieutenant’s name is being withheld from Ashli Babbitt’s attorneys. What happened to “the people’s right to know”? The officers name sure seems to come out quick enough for Antifa/BLM. Hell, they get the name, home address, kids names, and what the officer had for lunch three weeks ago last Tuesday. But Ashli’s attorneys can’t get the name. Justice for some, but not all.

Keep reaching higher: In what appears to be a new record for extreme DUI, a motorist’s blood alcohol content was measured at .77–more than nine times the legal limit–after he crashed his car following a short police chase Friday afternoon, Oregon cops report. According to investigators, the driver–who has not been named pending the filing of criminal charges–was involved in a hit-and-run in Madras, a city 125 miles southeast of Portland. The driver was subsequently transported to a local hospital for a medical evaluation. A blood sample taken from the suspect was tested and showed his blood alcohol was .778. The state’s legal limit is .08. Previously, the highest BACs reported in these pages were the .72 recorded by an Oregon woman in 2007 and the .708 recorded by a South Dakota woman in 2009.

Innocent until proven: Joy Behar quipped to her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that she couldn’t “wait to see” attorney general nominee Merrick Garland, once confirmed, indict Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) for being “part of the insurrection” at the U.S. Capitol on January 6. To hell with evidence;”Let’s give the guilty sob a fair trial and then take him out and hang ’em.”

Going to Hilo for the weekend. Got some serious Irish whiskey and music. Stay Safe.

Weekend In Sight Motes

Well, that’s new and different: A group of conservative and libertarian students at the University of Chicago have recently launched the Chicago Thinker, an online news and opinion publication that aims to exercise and uphold the values of the school’s famous free speech Chicago Principles. “We demand not to be coddled,” its editors state on their about page. publication fights cancel culture, supports free speech. The Thinker, started in 2020, publishes news, opinion, analysis, pop culture reviews and cartoons. These kids will go far, if they’re tough enough.

On February 21st, 2021, Ashli Elizabeth Babbitt was laid to rest in the Pacific Ocean. As waves crashed and dogs kicked up sand on the beach, those closest to Ashli spread her remains in the Pacific Ocean. A beautiful array of colors and flower petals surrounded her as she was submerged into the salty water. A tornado of what seemed to be pure energy appeared to embrace her and carry her out to rest blissfully. Rest In Peace Senior Airman. Your watch is over.

“The Rock” For President: I met Dwayne Johnson, “The Rock”, back in the early 80’s while I was working for his grandmother Lia Maivia as a ring announcer and tv commentator for Polynesian Big Time Professional Wrestling. His dad, Rocky “Soulman” Johnson, appeared on several of our cards in an on-going feud with Allen “Bad News” Brown. I had developed a problem with one of the other staff members that resulted in some punches thrown in the back of the arena. Unfortunate, Rocky only saw me punching the other guy. He verbally jumped in my shat. He was giving me a severe chewing out, which included the words “out of here” when Dwayne, then about 14, stepped up, told his father he was “wrong” and told him I had simply been defending myself. He went on to describe how I had been “false cracked” and was only responding to the attack. Dwayne, who I had only met at several prior tv tapings, continued to tell his dad I was owed an apology by the other staff member, and maybe by his dad too. Rocky looked over at the other guy, jerked his thumb over his shoulder, and simply said “Out”. Not even looking to see if his command was being followed, it was, he looked at me and said he didn’t know the whole story and was sorry. He went on to compliment me on my performance that night and not to worry, he handle that other “problem”. I was always impressed with the way Dwayne had stood up to his Dad in the defense of someone he barely knew. Even then, you could tell there was something special about him. Rock for President? Eahhh, No.

Late night non-comedians: On 2/5 Kamala Harris made a comment about unemployed miners learning new jobs, reclaiming “landmines”. Funny? Appears not, not one single late-night joke. Not one. Also, no late-night jokes about Uncle Joe or Auntie Kamala. Not one.

I am a white, baby-boomer, ex-military, ex-cop, biker, heterosexual, monogamous, employed male. There, I said it.

So, it was only Trump: Jim Carrey is calling it quits on his “political cartoons”, a passion project that made waves during former President Donald Trump’s administration. Actually, no they didn’t. Carrey wrote on twitter that he’s stopping the cartoons, often dark caricatures of Trump and his supporters, to “reclaim a little neurological bandwidth”. In his statement Saturday, Carrey said it was important to call out Trump’s actions while he was president. But not Obama, Bush, Biden, or Harris. So he is biased.

Middle Motes

I know how he feels: A wanted man surrendered to police in West Sussex (U.K.) Wednesday because he didn’t want to spend another minute with the people he was living with during the COVID-19 lockdown. Inspector Darren Taylor, of the Sussex Police, shared the odd occurrence, claiming the unidentified man, who was “wanted on recall to prison,” was in pursuit of “peace and quiet” when he turned himself in. We can sympathize.

Snake in the toilet: An Alaska woman had the scare of a lifetime when using an outhouse in the backcountry and she was attacked by a bear, from below. Her brother heard the screaming and went out to the outhouse, about 150 feet away. There, he found Shannon tending to her wound. They at first thought she had been bitten by a squirrel or a mink, or something small. The next morning, they found bear tracks all over the property, but the bear had left the area. “It’s probably not that bad of a little den in the winter,” Shannon said. Except for the smell.

Ashli Babbitt; Her murderer is still unidentified.

Not a comedian, she’s not funny: In the latest episode of The Sarah Silverman Podcast, far-left actress and comedian Sarah Silverman attacked Jared Kushner, claiming that the former president’s son-in-law could play a Nazi in a film and adding, “he is not capable of empathy.” The statement came in response to a question from a caller expressing frustration with Kushner — a grandson of a Holocaust survivor — for not condemning Holocaust-themed apparel allegedly worn by some neo-Nazis during the storming of the U.S. Capitol. Just how much crap is anyone responsible to respond too? There are a lot of people wearing crap that I find offensive and stupid, but I can only make so many comments. Oh, by the way, Kushner was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize last month. Silverman has been nominated for, well nothing.

Remember the four rules: There are several lessons from a deadly confrontation in rural Washington state on the day before Valentine’s day. Chief among them being don’t steal other people’s political signs from their property, somebody might end up dead. Joshua Tryon, whose girlfriend Kamran was killed in a shooting erupting from such an “alleged theft”. It appears there was a physical confrontation between Tryon, Cohee, and the owners of the property, and sign, that somehow included the two “beating on the door with a wheelbarrow”. No charges have been leveled against Tryon, who started it all, engaged in a fight, and committed the apparent theft. Rule: Don’t do stupid things. Your life will be so much easier, and longer.

But adults only: This week, 45 years after it started, the release of “The Muppet Show” on Disney Plus just may bring some sorely needed happiness and relief to those who need it. Ultimately broadcast in 102 countries and dubbed in 15 languages, the Jim Henson-produced half-hour became the most popular televised comedy worldwide during its five-year run. I can recall bars in Waikiki that for all intents, shut down during that ½ hour. You only talked or ordered during the commercial breaks. The Muppet movies have become mainstays at my house when spirits are down. And of course, Kermit has kept up with the times. KERMIT WICK

Tuesday Motes of Unity

Only a radio dj: He was a Radio Racist, the Homophobe of the Airwaves, just a Sexist Pig, always the Purveyor of Misinformation, may he Rot in Hell, a Liar, a Cancer on the Radio, and Divisionary. The 15.5 million weekly listener’s, (average) are conspiracy theorists, white supremacists, Nazzi facisists, home grown terrorists, deplorables and should be sent to prison, re-education camps or put through wood-chippers. But you know, UNITY.

Fair and impartial: Nancy Pelosi’s pick to lead a Capitol security investigation in the wake of the Jan. 6 riot Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré publicly insulted Republican Sen. Josh Hawley calling him a “little piece of sh-t” and calling for him to “be run out of DC and Disbarred ASAP.” also said Hawley and Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas are “aaa hats” and “high order white privilege.” Honoré has a history of criticizing Republicans. Honore’, led military relief efforts following Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and we all know how well that went. Claiming,  “The President doesn’t understand the Constitution”, Honore’ says gov’t’s first mistake with Puerto Rico relief was not giving the mission to the military. Except, that would have been unconstitutional. Who doesn’t understand? And isn’t he the one who allowed the National Guard to confiscate citizen private firearms during that “relief effort”?

Ashli Babbitt; Remember her name. Her killer still walks free.

Your tax dollars are paying for this:

Senate Bill H. R. 484
“To prohibit the use of Federal funds for the commemoration of certain former Presidents, and for other purposes.

  • 1) create or display any symbol, monument, or statue commemorating any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives on or before the date of enactment of this Act or has been convicted of a State or Federal crime relating to actions taken in an official capacity as President of the United States on Federal public land, including any highway, park, subway, Federal building, military installation, street, or other Federal property; 2) or name, designate, or redesignate a Federal building or Federal land after, or in commemoration of, any former President that has been twice impeached by the House of Representatives.”                       But it’s for everyone’s benefit and they are there to represent you.  

We’re all equal: Portland police officers threatened to arrest a group of people recovering food thrown out by a grocery store after a power outage Tuesday afternoon, NBC News reported. Around 20 people were initially arguing with store employees about taking the food items and refusing to leave the property before law enforcement responded. A store employee told officials that the food was unfit for consumption and should not be donated because it had not been stored at proper temperatures. Probably has nothing to due with the 6 or 7 months of “peaceful protests” in that city.
