Motes For Thursday

Flip then flop: Last Sunday on CBS, Anthony Fauci Infamously declared Christmas gatherings an uncertainty; now the doctor is encouraging everyone to celebrate Halloween. Fauci said that COVID-19 cases are headed in the “right direction” and that Americans should enjoy events like trick-or-treating later this month. Why does anyone put any credence to anything this lifelong bureaucrat hack says?

Absolutely safe for everyone: A Denver police officer, Jose Manriquez, who previously lost his ability to walk after reluctantly taking the COVID-19 vaccine was hospitalized Friday after experiencing symptoms of a stroke.  Jose Manriquez lost his ability to speak and suffered the loss of mental clarity, numbness, unsteadiness, etc. Manriquez received the mandatory vaccine on August 22, 2021, and immediately started having a bad reaction. Since receiving the vaccine he has not been able to return to work and his future is uncertain. The key word, “mandatory”, to my mind, that puts the Police Department, the City, and, since it was a State mandate, the State of Colorado at fault and a good lawyer will take them all to the cleaners. I hope Officer Manriquez completely recovers.

A good watch: Watched “Nobody” last weekend. Frelling great movie. A definite beer, Cheetos and a group of friends’ afternoon movie. Having Christopher Lloyd made it all the more enjoyable for me.

Not a freakin’ dime: The US is sending humanitarian aid to Afghanistan, the Taliban announced Sunday, after talks with American officials in Doha, Qatar, “went well.” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said they were “candid and professional.” Price hedged in committing the US to provide humanitarian aid to Afghanistan but did say it was discussed. Taliban political spokesperson Suhail Shaheen told the Associated Press there will not be any cooperation with the US on containing the recent attacks from ISIS. Not a dime of any “humanitarian” money will ever see the people. It will be pocketed by the ”leaders” and then used to attack the US. We should not send them a freakin’ dime. Not one.

Priorities are really screwed up: Grace Smith, 16, had already been suspended twice from Laramie High School in Wyoming for refusing to wear masks in class. As the brave student attempted to go to class unmuzzled once again, she was met with police and given a $500 citation. When she was told to leave the school, she refused to comply. At that point, she was handcuffed and arrested and the school was placed on “lockdown”. Grace will be expelled if she continues to collect suspensions, but the high school junior has no intention of backing down. Let’s compare this to the recent student that shot several people, spent less than 1 night in jail, and released on a very small, for the crime, bail. What the heck?

Rich don’t equal smart: An Iraqi citizen resident of Norway was caught doing 147 mph (236 kph) in Denmark on his way home from picking up a Lamborghini Huracan Performante Sypder he’d purchased in Germany. The driver was spotted in an 81 mph zone (130 kph) last week approaching the port city of Hirtshals. He was pulled over and had his car seized, which police said made him “a little annoyed.” Things may get much worse for him as Denmark passed a new law earlier this year that allows authorities to confiscate and auction the vehicles of reckless drivers. Reminds me of the guy who paid cash for a brand new Harley, t-boned a car while pulling out of the parking lot.  Totaled.
