Tuesday Motes

About time: Last week, Congressman Brian Babin (R-TX) introduced HR8830, also known as the “You Must Be Alive to Vote Act.” Apparently this simple, unobjectionable idea needs to be explicitly placed into law. So, the Democrats didn’t really steal the election?

Yeah, NO: Russian officials are warning citizens to avoid alcohol for two months after receiving the country’s COVID-19 vaccine — tough-to-swallow news for one of the world’s heaviest-drinking countries. The average Russian consumes 15.1 liters (almost 4 gallons) of alcohol a year. People will have to refrain from visiting crowded places, wear face masks, use sanitizers, minimize contacts and refrain from drinking alcohol or taking immunosuppressant drugs. Let me know how that works.

.gov says:The.gov says people won’t take the Covid treatment out of distrust of the way the .gov has handled the entire pandemic. No, they don’t trust the .gov because of the way the .gov has handled the government.

Enough already: Now they are producing “platform crocks”. Please, tell me it ain’t so.

 This cannot be allowed to happen: To put it mildly, Fort Hood is a mess. Sexual harassment and assault were rampant and sometimes unreported — probably because the women figured nothing would be done about it anyway. The implementation of a  program to improve conditions only resulted “in a pervasive lack of confidence, fear of retaliation, and significant underreporting of cases, particularly within the enlisted ranks,”. The report was probably no surprise to the Pentagon and the Army high command, which makes it even more maddening. Allowing their soldiers to live and work in such an environment is inexcusable and reflects very badly on our nation’s military. This rot starts at the top and goes down. So far 14 officers and senior NCO’s have been punished. Not enough.

I wasn’t in the running anyway: Fictional bad sex is just too much for folks to handle in the hellish coronavirus pandemic-stricken year of 2020. That’s according to the organizers of Britain’s Bad Sex in Fiction award who have canceled this year’s prize. The cancelation of the 2020 awards should not be taken as a license to write bad sex scenes, the judges warned. Having bad sex is okay, just don’t write about it.
