Short Week Friday Motes

Per Uncle Joe on 4/8/21 :  “But no amendment — no amendment to the Constitution is absolute.” Okay, I’m going to ignore the 16th and stop paying taxes. Yeah, that’ll catch on.

What a freakin’ concept: Some migrants in Denmark will now be required to work 37 hours a week in order to receive welfare benefits. It will be a requirement for those who have been on benefits for three to four years, and who have not reached a certain level of proficiency in Danish. Denmark now has some of the toughest rules in Europe, and has set a target of zero asylum applications. In 2020, roughly 27 thousand violent and seven thousand sex crime cases were reported to the Danish authorities. This in a country of roughly 5.8 million people. People working to earn welfare. There’s an idea that should catch on.

WTF? : A young child was killed after people in several cars opened fire on a home in northwest Charlotte late Tuesday, and Charlotte-Mecklenburg police think the shooters may have ties to several local high schools. At around 11:45 p.m., officers responded to multiple 911 calls about a shooting Mountain Island Lake. When police got to the scene, they found a 3-year-old boy who had been shot. The boy was sleeping when he was shot. The city top cop says “This is a situation where we have some individuals who clearly have demonstrated complete disregard for the welfare of their fellow human being.” According to detectives, several vehicles targeted the home, unleashing more than 150 rounds toward the house. He said he believes all of the shootings involve Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools high school students and have evolved from simple disputes into violent, deadly shootings. W T F ?

We knew all along: The Los Angeles police department (LAPD) has directed its officers to collect the social media information of every civilian they interview, including individuals who are not arrested or accused of a crime, according to records shared with the Guardian. Copies of the “field interview cards” that police complete when they question civilians reveal that LAPD officers are instructed to record a civilian’s Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media accounts, alongside basic biographical information. The police chief, Michel Moore, told employees that it was critical to collect the data for use in “investigations, arrests, and prosecutions”, and warned that supervisors would review cards to ensure they were complete. You are not arrested, not under investigation, you may not even be involved in whatever they are “investigating”, but they want all your personal information for their files. This is just another in a long line of LAPD civil/constitutional rights violations.

Gas has not changed for 30 days now.

Vigilantes: A group that’s been tracking COVID violations said the party crowd was still in full swing over the Labor Day weekend. Members of the Hawaii Quarantine Kapu Breakers say they heard of at least 10 illegal gatherings on Oahu over the weekend. “Some of them private parties, underground parties, raves that are still going on that in the long-run will affect our communities,” said Kawaikapuokalani Hewett, of Hawaii Quarantine Kapu Breakers. It appears the local PD encourages people snitch out their neighbors. Or maybe it’s just a bunch of busybodies with nothing else to do in life.

The U.S. has pledged $300 million dollars in aid to Afghanistan. Maybe we could keep it and use that to fix our own roads.

Off to Hilo this weekend. Yard to mow, dog poop to pick-up, and beer to drink. See you Monday.

** Listened to Uncle Joe’s speech yesterday. “Let me be perfectly clear.” “Let me be blunt about this.” “I want to speak right to you.” YOU WILL COMPLY OR THE GOVERNMENT WILL MAKE YOUR LIFE LIVING HELL. Thank you and good-night.***
