Monday Motes, Lots Of Them

The DUI was extra: A new record: Let’s hear it for Matt Ellis of Neots, England. What did Matt do you ask? Well, he went to 51 pubs in 8 hours and 52 minutes. By rules, he had to consume at least 4.2 ounces of any beverage at each establishment. Hell, in the old days that would have been one trip up and down Keeamoku street.

Absolutely the dumbest person in the world: Joy Behar told her co-hosts Wednesday on ABC’s “The View” that the NFL should “rehire” Colin Kaepernick to make up for former Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden’s emails. Behar said, “I would think if they really wanna clean up their act, they should hire Colin Kaepernick. I mean, why is he out of a job while all of this is going on?” How about because he’s a mediocre player. At best. And how would doing that thing make up for the other thing? Well, she is trained “teacher”.

A great idea: Poland plans to spend over 1.6 billion zlotys ($404 million) on building a wall on its border with Belarus, according to a draft bill lawmakers are due to discuss on Wednesday, in a bid to stem the flow of migrants trying to cross. The announcement came as German police reported an upsurge in the number of migrants illegally entering Germany — the most popular final destination among asylum seekers — after first crossing the Belarus-Polish border and making their way westwards across Poland. Poland and fellow EU countries Lithuania and Latvia have reported sharp increases in migrants from countries such as Afghanistan, Iran and Iraq So they’re building a wall between two countries to slow immigration. What a great idea.

At least three Segal movies*: Transportation Security Administration agents have caught 4,495 firearms at security checkpoints so far this year, marking a 20-year record. The discoveries are rare but up sharply, the agency said. So far in 2021, officers have found 11 guns in carry-on bags for every 1 million passengers screened, the TSA said. Sort of makes you wonder how many knives etc. they missed.(*bombs)

You can be replaced: Trans employees and allies at Netflix are planning a walkout on Wednesday, Oct. 20, in protest regarding Dave Chappelle’s new special, “The Closer,”. So the employees are telling the management what they may or may not put on the network the management owns. A very simple answer, where are you looking for your next job? 

I got nothing on this one: Suspecting that someone had entered a barn on her property without permission, a Florida Woman set up a trail camera. The camera, cops say, captured Santiago Victoria, 57, entering the barn late at night and invading a stall occupied by a horse name Mariah. During three separate encounters, Victoria “gets behind the horse in a sexual manner,” according to an arrest affidavit. When cops Friday confronted Victoria at his residence, he reportedly “admitted to having sexual intercourse with the horse,” but could not remember how many times. I’m not touching this one.

Disturbing headline: OSHA Might Rely On Tattletales To Force Biden’s Vaccine Coercion On Private Sector Workers. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) might rely on tattletales within companies to speed up their enforcement of President Joe Biden’s currently unenforceable directive forcing private sector businesses to mandate the COVID-19 shot for employees. That probably means guys in my profession, Safety, will be asked to enforce this crap. That just means I’ll retire a little earlier than planned. I won’t enforce and unlawful directive. Period.

Sunday morning I’m sitting in the garage, drinking some good coffee with just a splash of Evan Williams, and listening to an old recording of one of my early morning radio shows.  John Wayne (America, Why I Love Her), Tennessee Ernie Ford (This Is My Country), Eddie Raven (Somebodies Tearing The Flag), Lee Greenwood (God Bless The USA), Hank Williams Jr. (Mr. Lincoln). I realized things are as screwed up now as they were when I did that show over 25 years ago. I can’t explain the small tear that formed. I just can’t.
