Not New Year Yet Motes

There are no rules: Marc Elias, one of the most prominent Demorat lawyers in the country, is  predicting that Democrats will attempt to prevent some duly-elected Republican House members from serving, and that they may even attempt to file litigation to prevent some Republican members from serving. So basically, the Demorat party doesn’t want to share, they want absolute power and control, exactly what they keep accusing President Trump of wanting. He is a former partner at Perkins Coie, the Democrat-aligned law firm that was heavily tied to the now-discredited Steele memo.  What he intends to do is try to remove sitting house members by charging them under Section 3 of the 14th Amendment, which was passed during the post-Civil War reconstruction period and charging them with “insurrection”.  He’s an attorney, he hasn’t been elected to anything, he just wants to run everything. I think the right quote is “First we shoot the lawmakers.”

Call it what it is:  The Honolulu Police Department said it is investigating after a man was accidentally shot in Niu Valley. Authorities said the incident happened around 1 a.m. Thursday on Halemaumau Street. Officials said the 38-year-old man was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Honolulu Emergency Medical Services said someone else accidentally set off the firearm, hitting the victim in the arm and abdomen. Okay, two guys, one of them a cop, are playing with a firearm at 1 in the morning. I’d bet there was alcohol involved. This is not an “accidental” shooting. This IS a negligent discharge. Let’s start calling them, what they are. Unless we can change that to “stupid drunken shat playing with a firearm”. Nah, that’s too long.

 This is just wrong: Two beloved pet dogs, two-year-old Odin and six-year-old Lucy, have been condemned to die for a crime the owners say they did not commit in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. In January of 2021, Odin and Lucy were accused of killing a neighbor’s cat, Big Boy. There was one alleged eyewitness who said he saw this event and identified the dogs. But the eyewitness changed his account and never showed up to testify. Since their incarceration in January of 2020, the dogs have not been allowed outside at all. Condemned dogs are forced to relieve themselves where they sleep and are never allowed to go outside for exercise or a walk at the county facility. Sixty-seven-year-old Nola Lowman and her son William Dillon, the dogs’ loving owners have exhausted their ability to pay for the growing legal fees and are raising money via GoFundMe. All the family wants for Christmas is Odin and Lucy at home where they belong. This is just wrong. Period.

A solution to a non-existent problem:  A Japanese professor has developed a prototype lickable TV screen that can imitate food flavors, another step towards creating a multi-sensory viewing experience. The device, called Taste the TV (TTTV), uses a carousel of 10 flavor canisters that spray in combination to create the taste of a particular food. The flavor sample then rolls on hygienic film over a flat TV screen for the viewer to try. To me, this ranks right up there with “Smell-o-vision”.

When did stupid replace comedy?

Spend spend spend: Uncle Joe wants to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Today I spent an hour and fourth five minutes at the Post Office to pick up a package. Maybe they could spend some of that on additional clerks.

If you got a moment, please say a prayer for my Brother Danny Pagan. He and Kimmy were making the move to Louisiana and caught Covid. He’s on a ventilator and it’s bad…very bad. Please take a moment and ask Him, for him, for some peace. He’s a good man.
