It’s everywhere: In November 2020, Denmark had to cull (kill) millions of farm raised mink due to a covid-19 mutation scare. The mink were not buried properly and later that year began to “rise from the dead”. OMG Steffan, zombie minks. Now it’s reported that Hong Kong will cull more than 2,000 hamsters and ban the import of small animals after a pet shop worker, a customer and at least 11 hamsters tested positive for the Delta variant of the coronavirus. Hope they bury the hamsters better than the Danes did the mink.
Headline: “It’s high time the UK government pursued justice for the Syrian people.” My first thought was, “No, it’s time for the Syrian people to pursue justice.” If the criminals are in the UK, the UK should support the Syrian government in seeking justice. The trial the writer was commenting on, occurred in Germany. So, then I read the article and nothing in it, or 3 others, changed my mind. Unless we have a one-world-one government (shudder-puke) it’s up the Syria to seek its own justice. It’s up to everyone else to help.
Kinky* for governor: Money is pouring fast into the Texas governor’s race headlined by Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Democrat Beto O’Rourke, who both reported massive early fundraising hauls. O’Rourke said he raised $7.2 million in the weeks after entering the race in mid-November. Oh Kinky, where are you now that Texas really needs you?
Sad Good-Bye: I was sorry to hear about the Nov. 23, 2021 death of author Andrew Vachss, an American crime fiction author, child protection consultant, and attorney exclusively representing children and youths. His series on “Burke” an ex-con doing illegal investigations (and actions) were the stuff best described as “hard boiled”. He was an outspoken advocate on women and children’s rights and was a prosecuting attorney specializing in “child sex crimes”. He died of coronary artery disease on November 23, 2021, at the age of 79 at his residence in Pacific Northwest. I have all of his books, many signed, and have read several of them multiple times. His courage and advocacy will be missed.
“They” hate you, Trump was just in the way: A majority of Democrats would agree with the U.S. government taking more drastic coronavirus measures, such as confining unvaccinated Americans to their homes “at all times except for emergencies,” a Rasmussen Reports survey revealed. The survey found 59 percent of Democrats favor the government requiring unvaccinated individuals to stay at home “at all times” with exceptions only for emergencies. Democrats are also liked of the government requiring unvaccinated individuals to use a smart phone app or “wearable device” that tracks unvaccinated people to “ensure that they are quarantined or socially distancing from others,” 47 percent favoring. Remember, a poll can be used to prove anything the guy paying for it wants it to prove. Still, this is a significant number of people that want you to have no rights, except what they want you to have.
