Long Last Friday Motes

Non-Press conference : White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre could not name anything that President Joe Biden was considering doing to help alleviate rising fuel prices across the country. Which is okay, since nobody else can either.

It’s all in the name: A Center for Countering Digital Hate report warns of the free speech threat from, “climate disinformation, including articles that undermine the existence or impacts of climate change or misrepresent data in ways that might erode trust in climate science experts.” The CCDH is a British leftist group run by Imran Ahmed. The failed political adviser claims to have the solution for internet hate speech, yet he admits he knows virtually nothing about the internet. Ahmed and CCDH aren’t just pushing censorship to the media though, but to Congress. And nothing builds trust like eliminating dissent. This is another of those “name is not what it is really about, but just the opposite” entities.

The MSM cried woof: Hey, what happened to the “Fauci torments dogs’” story? It was big, it was everywhere, and then it just disappeared. Kinda like Hunter Biden’s laptop, pistol, and paintings.

Guilty, until proven not-guilty: Congress has created a new requirement for automakers: Find a high-tech way to keep drunken people from driving cars. Under the legislation, monitoring systems to stop intoxicated drivers would roll out in all new vehicles as early as 2026, after the Transportation Department assesses the best form of technology to install in millions of vehicles and automakers are given time to comply. The legislation doesn’t specify the technology, only that it must “passively monitor the performance of a driver of a motor vehicle to accurately identify whether that driver may be impaired.” I guess having laws against DUI isn’t enough. Seems like everything “they” are doing, starts at the premise you are doing something illegal, immoral, or fattening, until you prove you aren’t. Guilty until you prove you aren’t. Not quite the way I was taught the American judicial system was set up.  

Start them early: Six kids ranging in age from 11 to 14 were taken into custody Tuesday morning following a police chase of a stolen vehicle that began on I-65 in central Alabama. Prattville police assisted troopers by deploying spike strips to deflate the SUV’s tires. Moments later, the SUV crashed into two other vehicles at the intersection of Memorial Drive and Main Street in Prattville. The SUV was occupied by six juveniles: an 11-year-old, a 12-year-old, two 13-year-olds and two 14-year-olds. Okay, al least we can safely say the fbi had no informants in this case.

Not an answer: On Monday Alec Baldwin recommended that police officers be present on film sets during action scenes with guns. Good grief, does he know how many *ND’s happen at every police station. Most cops carry a gun for their job, that doesn’t make them an expert or even safe. It just makes them cops. Baldwin has several people he can share the blame for this tragedy with, but he needs to take responsibility for his actions. Until he does, he gets no sympathy from me. Not can his answers become solutions. (* Negligent Discharge)

Headed off to Hilo this weekend. Gonna do my favorite things, mow the lawn, play with the dogs, and drink some. See ya Monday.
