ALmost Friday Motes

 Did somebody drop Nancy on her head: In Glasgow, Scotland on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) released a “woke” statement in which she bizarrely demanded that “gender equity” be made a “central component of climate action.” If there is anyone in the World that can explain this to me, I’m listening.

Speaking of head cases: Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) said she agrees with the notion that people don’t care about gas prices if they can’t afford child care so they can work.  “A huge part of Build Back Better is to lower costs such as childcare costs, to provide pre-K, which is really important for young families. We need to get on and pass the Build Back Better to lower costs for families and to address climate change.” My kids are all grown, so I don’t really need “child care”, but paying 5 or 8 dollars a gallon will keep me from going to work. And I venture that if they don’t have to pay outrageous prices for gas or milk or bread, those other families could afford child care.

Any time anyone says your sacrifice is for the greater good, you can be sure they aren’t sacrificing anything.

I’m bigger, I make the rules: The prosecution’s general argument was that Rittenhouse should have used hand-to-hand combat to fight off a mob of adults who were threatening his life, chasing him, and physically assaulting him. DA Kraus, in a rebuttal against the closing argument of Rittenhouse’s defense, echoed a statement from lead prosecutor that it was unfair of Rittenhouse to bring a gun to protect himself against the angry mob when his fists alone would have sufficed. “As Mr. Binger said, he brought a gun to a fistfight, and he was too cowardly to use his own fists to fight his way out. He has to start shooting.” So, I guess he wants us to just deed the world over to the bigger and stronger. This is coming from a guy that has obviously never been in a real fist fight, never had a jaw or nose broken, or had someone trying to curb stomp his teeth out. As Colt used to say, ”Fear no man, No matter his size, I am with you, I will equalize”.

Headline: “Cuomo Playing Stupid in Sexual Harassment Probe”? Who says he’s playing?

Probably not: This doesn’t seem like the right time to study “abroad” but I saw a half page ($$) newspaper ad touting the joy and benefits of Taiwan. Considering mainland China is talking about taking the island back, I wonder whose bright campaign idea this was.

Don’t make threats: Seems like there are a lot of problems with “school boards” and “PTA” association meetings. Parents getting involved and making comments on the curriculum and such. This I agree with. My wife and I fought for our kids. What I don’t agree with is the use of intimidation against other parents because they disagree. Such as the guy standing up and threatening other parents who spoke out against CRT. When he says” I got over 1,000 soldiers locked and loaded”, I’d take that as a threat to the community. This is intimidation plain and obvious.

A sad Good-Bye to John Furman, 74. A long time friend, John was the head of the City and County of Honolulu Auditoriums. He was a kind man with an opinion on everything. He will be missed.

Gas, Honolulu 11/16. Up another $.05 in 12 days. We’re almost there. What are you paying.
