Aloha: Hawaii has been under emergency orders since March 2020. Gov. David Ige on Friday issued his 18th COVID-19 emergency proclamation, which suspends a myriad of statutes and keeps in place rules for dealing with the pandemic. We are restricted in inter-island (think county) travel, hundreds of family business’ are closed forever and lives ruined, all in the name of “safety”. It is time we pull King David’s leash. He was elected to represent the people, to act in the electorate’s best interest, he isn’t.
The headline says: “Food Network Star Denied Bail in Murder Case of Foster Care Victim Victoria Rose Smith.” Okay, she appeared on one program, and that makes her a “star”. She and her husband, both black, are charged with murdering a 3-year-old white child. At first it was reported they had “adopted” the child, but the truth is they were “fostering” the little girl. The South Carolina Department of Social Services (DSS) was legally in custody of the small child. The biological family alleges that DSS never bothered to check on Smith and her brothers who were in the care of abusers. The toddler suffered from extensive injuries, including deep bruising on her abdomen, bruising on her ear, abrasions on her face, bruising down her neck, and bruising up and down both legs. If the justice system was fair, DSS would be under arrest and on trial as well as the Robinsons for their role in this child’s death.
Don’t say you weren’t warned: White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki on Tuesday said gun control is a personal priority for Joe Biden calling on Congress to enact “commonsense” gun law reforms and eliminating immunity for gun manufacturers who knowingly put weapons of war on our streets. So, when does MADD start pushing for the right to sue the car makers when their vehicle is used by drunk driver? It’s only common sense that the maker “knew” their product could be used to kill. Convince me it’s different.
Breitbart Headline: “Iranians Say Joe Biden Has Not Kept Promise to Bring Muslims into United States”. What they actually said was they were hoping the election of Joe Biden as president would mean that their loved ones would be allowed to come into the country. Iran is still considered by the U.S. federal government as a state sponsor of terrorism. I couldn’t find where Uncle Joe made this promise, but if he did, I hope he doesn’t.
It’s all in the words: Recently heard an ad for a real estate dealer. They described the home for sale as having “years of deferred maintenance”. Deferred maintenance? Nice way of saying run down dump.
Poor Walt Disney: He must be rolling over in his grave if he sees what the company he founded which bears his name has become. In 2019, Disney producer Jack Morrissey, tweeted a picture with an image from “Fargo” in which a dead person’s blood flies forth from a woodchipper, writing:“#MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.” Morrissey is still employed because, you know, unity.
Political/Media Hack: MSNBC host Joe Scarborough dismissed comparisons between the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol by Trump supporters and protests for racial justice last summer. Scarborough says the comparison is wrong.He says “No. No, actually jackass, it’s not the same. The Capitol of the United States of America is the center of American democracy.” “It’s like confusing a taco stand with the United States Capitol”. According to reports, 140 cities suffered during the summer at a cost of almost $2 billion dollars No dumbshat, the center of American Democracy is the people, and their “taco” stands. You putz.
Staying in Honolulu this weekend. Hopefully I’ll find something to do.
