Monday Already? Motes

Theft by government: About 300 people are contesting the seizure of their money and valuables by the FBI after the agency failed to produce evidence of criminal wrongdoing. The fbi raided safe deposit boxes rented at the U.S. Private Vaults store at a strip mall in Beverly Hills, California, in March. The agency is attempting to confiscate $86 million in cash, in addition to other valuables, such as a stockpile of jewelry. Federal agents claim criminals were storing loot in the deposit boxes but have not produced evidence of wrongdoing for the vast majority of those who rented them. Prosecutors have thus far outlined 11 individuals with past criminal convictions or pending charges, out of the roughly 800 box holders, to justify the forfeitures. The FBI claimed the $57,000 they took from one owner was too much for him to have accumulated from his income and that a dog had smelled unspecified drugs on his cash. This is their evidence? No forfeiture notices have been court issued. The box owners are guilty until they prove the aren’t. No matter what decision, the fbi can keep this in court until the owners give up or die. They will never get their rightful property back. Never.

Just askin’: Russia-gate, Whipgate, Spygate and the grandaddy of them all, Watergate.  What did we call these kinds of scandals before 1972 and Nixon?

Sad news indeed: Australia has lost about 30% of its koala over the past three years, with the marsupials hit by drought, bushfires and developers cutting down trees, the Australian Koala Foundation said on Tuesday. the worst decline was in the state of New South Wales, where the numbers have dropped by 41%. There were no upward trends anywhere in Australia. Australian Koala Foundation Chair Deborah Tabart said the country needs a koala protection law. Besides the impact of drought and fires, land clearing by property developers and road builders has destroyed the iconic marsupial’s habitat. Save The Koala!!

Absolute arrogance: Seventy entertainers signed on to a letter produced by the nonprofit group CARE, calling for the end of COVID. “None of us are safe until all of us are safe,” the memo reads. “ We call on leaders gathering at the United Nations General Assembly Session to boldly act together to end COVID-19 everywhere. ” The memo calls on world leaders to provide vaccines for 70 percent of the world’s population by next year.  If only these celebrities had thought of this open letter sooner, millions of lives could have been saved. Who knew it was that simple? So “entertainers”, let me ask this; What are you going to do to make this happen? Besides send a letter”

Remember, if you can’t think of the correct gender “pro-noun” when speaking to someone, “azzhole” is gender neutral.

Correct response, myob: When someone starts complaining about someone else not being vaxxd, give them one word. “Thalidomide”. Thalidomide was a drug that was developed in the 1950s by the West German pharmaceutical company Chemie Grünenthal GmbH. It was originally intended as a sedative or tranquilizer, but was soon thought a wonder drug and was used for treating a wide range of other conditions, including colds, flu, nausea and morning sickness in pregnant women. It was “approved” and on the market for 5+ years, then the birth defects, over 10,000, started showing up. How long has the vax been available? Maybe 1 year? “But it’s safe”. Yeah, so was Thalidomide, at first.
