Week’s End Motes

Sedition: /səˈdiSH(ə)n/ noun; conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.

Recent revelations: Some 9,000 children died in Ireland’s church-run homes for unwed mothers, a government published report on Tuesday has found. This is equivalent to 15 percent of all children who were born or lived in the institutions over nearly 80 years.  Several years ago we watched a fantastic movie on this called “Philomena”. This is a 2013 drama film based on the 2009 book The Lost Child of Philomena Lee by journalist Martin Sixsmith. Starring Judi Dench  and Steve Coogan It tells the true story of Philomena Lee’s 50-year search for her forcibly adopted son and Sixsmith’s efforts to help her find him. It is a brilliant movie, not a particularly “happy” movie. It will cause questions and conversations.

I’m screwed: The Biden administration will prioritize distributing coronavirus aid to small businesses owned by those in specific minority groups, according to a clip President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team shared Sunday. So, as a male, over 70, married to the same woman for over 30 years, father of 3, grandfather of 2, cancer survivor, I don’t get the vaccine because I’m white. Isn’t there a nasty name for that?

You know unity: Joe Biden has not even taken office yet, but he appears to be jettisoning his promise to restore bipartisanship in Washington, DC. Since being declared the winner of the 2020 contest, Biden has moved quickly to name the senior members of his cabinet. Biden’s cabinet, in fact, will be the first since President Bill Clinton’s initial term to not have a member of the opposing party at the head of an administrative department.  And yet, the MSM is proclaiming the wonderfulness of his choices. Remember when Uncle Joe said :”I represent all of you, whether you voted for me or against me. And I’m going to make sure you’re represented.” You know, unity.

Remember Ashli Babbitt. Remember her name.

Don’t do it: There is a warning out telling people NOT to attend any “armed protests” in the coming days. They claim it is a “trap” to give cause to new firearms regulations and restrictions. I am not espousing these un-named warnings. But I also warn against any “armed” actions unless you are ready to “start the dance”. In Hawaii we do NOT have any open carry rights and doing so will result in your immediate “arrest” and potentially the lose of ALL your firearms rights. We already know there will be the double standard of law enforcement. BLM/Antifa were allowed to carry openly in public without repercussions and conservatives will not. It will continue. Don’t go to stupid places. Don’t be with stupid people. Don’t do stupid things.

Going home to Hilo this weekend. Mow the lawn, pick up the dog poop, and all that other “homeowner” stuff. Enjoy the weekend writings.
