It’s Wednesday Motes

If you don’t like what an actor or comedian has to say, don’t watch/listen. That’s why there is a channel selector, and an off switch. You don’t HAVE to be offended. It ain’t rocket surgery.

The name game: I love when the names are used to indicate what they really aren’t. Example, The People Republic (of anywhere) It’s not for “the people” and it’s never a “republic”. Now we have the “Republican Accountability Project”, which is neither “Republican” nor is it for accountability. Their main effort is to stop any audits and shame those who want accountability in our elections. It is a well-funded never-Trump group that wants the greatest President in US history, by some measurements, done and gone. “Moms Demand Action” is a “grassroots movement of Americans fighting for public safety measures that can protect people from gun violence.” MDA is largely financed by Michael Bloomberg, who the last time I looked was neither as Mom nor a “grassroots” sort of fella.

Headline: “Cher Sues Sonny Widow Over Royalties”. There’s just so many possible comments from here. So, so many.

Where’d it go: What happen to “believe the women” movement? Wasn’t that the big thing during the Kavanaugh witch hunt? Then it seemed to disappear during the Cuomo fiasco. So, what about the 15-year-old daughter in Loudoun County who told her father she had been assaulted at school? Doesn’t she deserve to be believed? Or do we wait until “all the facts are in”? Even as the accused has been accused again, of the same kind of assault, in another school. Or are we dealing with a two-tier legal system? Why is seeking the truth and justice considered a “witch hunt”?  Just asking.

Best wishes: Get well fast to Katey Sagal. The former Mrs. Al Bundy (Married With Children) Gemma Teller (Sons Of Anarchy) was struck by a car, a Tesla, in a crosswalk in downtown L.A. Reports say the injuries weren’t serious.

Any excuse will do a tyrant: Whoopi Goldberg told her co-hosts Tuesday on ABC’s “The View” that former Secretary of State Colin Powell may not have died if more Americas were vaccinated against COVID-19. “Had everybody been vaccinated. Yes, he may not have died as quickly. And all of those folks over at Fox, just tell your people. Tell your people why you had to get it.” For gods sake Whoop, General Powell had multiple myeloma, a cancer of plasma cells that suppresses the body’s immune response, as well as Parkinson’s. Even if fully vaccinated against Covid-19, those who are immunocompromised are at greater risk from the virus. It would not have mattered if the whole freakin’ world was vaxxd, he would have died. Quit gravedancing.

Not watching: I tried to watch NCIS: Hawaii. Awful, simply awful. Won’t watch again.\

How ugly was she: An Illinois mother of three shot a man dead after he — and his girlfriend — refused to kiss her, authorities said. The three had been drinking together on Thursday night when Resendiz-Florez asked Jones for a kiss, which he refused — instead kissing his girlfriend. Resendiz-Florez then also asked Jones’ girlfriend for a kiss, who also declined. She then grabbed Jones’ gun and was able to shoot him once in the chest.

You don’t like the law, don’t bother with it: Over a two-week period, from Sept. 30 to Oct. 12, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas effectively abolished the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. Doing away with the agency that apprehends and removes illegal aliens has become a rallying cry for the far left and was embraced by several contenders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. Under the guise of “setting priorities,” Mayorkas limits enforcement to just three categories of illegal aliens: national security threats, “violent” criminals, and those that entered the US before the election. Even those categories are severely limited. bTo be clear, ICE wasn’t doing much even before Mayorkas issued his edicts – ICE agents were averaging one arrest every two and a half months – but now it’s official: ICE has been ordered to stand down. Geez, I hope the fbi/dea/atfe are next.
