Thursday Motes Off The Top

Good show: Read an article about an armed robber in Texas that needs to find another line of work. Seems he decided to hold-up a local convenience store, and 4 customers shot him.  He did survive, but obviously needs to find another line of work. He’s not too good at this one.

Chicago weekend: 34 shot, 7 dead. Hey, where is the Rev. Jackson? Sharpton? Hogg? How come nobody seems to care.

Nobody cares that Ashli Babbitt was murdered either.

 You needed a study to figure this out: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, member of Congress representing the Bronx, is a proud Puerto Rican/Hispanic/Woman/ green/ socialist. According to a study by the non-partisan Center for Effective Lawmaking, she’s also an incompetent radical. AOC was rated 230 out of 240 Democratic congresspeople.  You gotta wonder what states get numbers 231 to 240. 

Joe Biden is going to get “unity.”: He will get it even if he has to just make stuff up.Case in point: bills proposed by a Democratic president, rammed through Congress by Democratic lawmakers, and voted on exclusively by Democrats are actually “bipartisan” according to the White House. bi·par·ti·san /bīˈpärdəzən/adjective//involving the agreement or cooperation of two political parties that usually oppose each other’s policies. I don’t think that word means what you think it means.

Rule, please: When does a mandate become a law? If I can be arrested, fined, or jailed if I violate it, is it a law? If a mandate becomes a law without the legislative process, why have that process? (man·date)  /ˈmanˌdāt/ noun// 1.an official order or commission to do something. “a mandate to seek the release of political prisoners” 2.the authority to carry out a policy or course of action, regarded as given by the electorate to a candidate or party that is victorious in an election. “a sick leader living beyond his mandate”. Just have our “elected representative’s” mandate everything. Oh, then we wouldn’t need them. That’ll save tax $$.

What are you paying for gas? In Honolulu;

Ouch! About the same was when Obama started. It will get worse.

Happy Birthday Cliffy: Actor John Ratzenberger, Cliff Claven of Cheers. He’s 74.

** New information: Biden to unveil long-awaited executive action on guns. The announcement, expected for Thursday, comes amid a spate of high-profile shootings and as some advocates have grown frustrated in the White House’s delay. Will probably include “concealed assualt-style weapons”, and “ghost gun” background checks. More laws that can’t be enforced, until they really want you. ***
