It happens: A recent story reported how a kid brought a bottle of pre-mixed margarita to school to share with the class. A few dixie cups later several classmates got a “little woozy”. Wife once made several trays of “jello-shooters” for a club party over at JJ’s place. His 15 y-o son got hold of one of the trays and he and a couple of friends ate the whole tray and got absolutely ripped. The deed was discovered when all four sort of passed out and got found, by his Mom. JJ had a free shop cleaner for several weeks, and Mom didn’t have to clean anything in the house for a long time. And the story was brought up at every party after that, especially when JJ jr. attended.
At last, sanity: Florida’s lone statewide elected Democrat, Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried, plans to sue the Biden administration Wednesday to try to block a federal rule that prohibits medical marijuana users from buying guns or maintaining concealed-carry permits. The lawsuit targets a federal form that asks whether the gun buyer is an unlawful user of drugs and specifies that marijuana is illegal under federal law. A person allowed by the state to use marijuana must then check “yes,” which results in denial of the purchase. Lying by checking “no” runs the risk of a five-year prison sentence for making a false statement. (Like Hunter did, but he hasn’t been charged.)
OPSEC: A California man was arrested on Capitol riot charges earlier this month after the Uber driver who drove him away from the January 6 attack tipped off the FBI. Jerry Daniel Braun faces three charges related to his role in the insurrection, including entering and remaining in a restricted building, violent entry or disorderly conduct, and obstruction during civil disorder. He was snitched out by an Uber driver. A portion of Braun’s ride was captured on video by a dash cam in the Uber, according to court documents, during which the driver engaged Braun in conversation about the siege. So, Braun is facing charges because he couldn’t keep his mouth shut. He had to brag to someone he didn’t even know. Always act like they are listening/recording, because they are. Keep OPSEC (operational security)
We’re getting there: The movie Soylent Green was produced and filmed in 1972 and released in 1973. It is a futuristic tale of doom, describing life in the year 2022. Cumulative effects of overpopulation, pollution, and “climate catastrophe” have caused severe worldwide shortages of food, water, and housing. Take a couple of hours and watch it. Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson are great. The movie, well, it’ll make you think.
Double dipper: Kai Kahele is a Hawaii Congressman, who has told his supporters it is likely he will run for governor of Hawaii. The fact he hasn’t been to Washington D.C., you know, where Congress is meeting, since January, may cause a bit of a stumble. Another bump could be that he also continues to work as a commercial airline pilot for Hawaiian Airlines. So, he has taken advantage of the Covid era rule that allows him to vote on congressional matters, those things he was elected to handle, by “proxy”. So, his record as a congress “critter” is a little less than stellar. At least as state governor he won’t have to use a proxy, he’ll already be here. Unless he’s flying to Vegas.
