Little Friday(Thursday)Motes

Presented for your review: During the mass mayhem and looting in Chicago earlier this week, looters targeted the Ronald McDonald House, a charity that provides a place for families with sick children to stay close to hospitals. (Boy, nothing says social warrior like looting kids with cancer.) “The whole door was shattered and it looked like a bullet hole, so I started freaking out thinking about how unsafe that was. You shouldn’t feel that way when your kid needs medical care. You shouldn’t be afraid to walk a few blocks down the street.” One of the families staying at the Chicago Ronald McDonald House is the family of two-year-old Owen Buell, who is receiving treatment at Lurie Children’s Hospital for Stage 4 neuroblastoma.(Survival rate, 40%.) The family is hoping to still be able to bring him home for a birthday celebration before his next round of treatment. This just makes me so angry I can’t make some smartazz remark.

Don’t need no stinkin’ facts: Rob Reiner said Monday that if President Donald Trump were to deliver a speech accepting his party’s nomination at the historic Civil War battlefield at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, it would be a tribute to “White Supremacy.” Again, offered by Reiner without evidence or proof, just accusation. In fact, Gettysburg is not a Confederate symbol. It was the most important Union victory of the Civil War. It marked a “turning point” in the fight to end the war and abolish slavery. Geez Rob, with all your money and education, I guess you skipped history.

Where are they: They? The Rev. Jesse Jackson. The Rev. Al Sharpton. Oprah. And ALL the rest. “An outdoor vigil was held for 7-year-old Zamar Jones who was shot while playing on his porch in Philadelphia.” Sitting on his porch! Zamar had aspirations to become a police officer. Why aren’t “the” people speaking out? Why aren’t they attending the funerals of these innocents? Isn’t the death of a child worth their attention? How about 25-year-old Darius N. Sessoms of Wilson, North Carolina? He is in police custody for executing a 5-year-old boy. Cannon Hinnant on Sunday was riding his bike in front of his home when Darius Sessoms ran up to him, put a gun to his head and executed him in front of his two sisters.Nothing but crickets from the mainstream media.According to neighbors, Sessoms lives next door to the victim’s family and just had dinner at their home. Where is the outrage? Shooter black, victim white, I guess his life doesn’t matter.

And they wear leather jackets and denim and ride motorcycles: “They ‘aint the sharpest tools in the shed.” So starts a report from the New York Post by “Tamar Lapin”, regarding the the attendee’s at the biker rally in Sturgis S.D. Hey Tamar, I’d be careful about insulting some people. There are still a few people in this world that has a tenancy to physically respond to such comments. Or you could just stay in New York and live an interesting life.
