Tuesday Motes, Read ‘Em and Weep

The pandemic is over. Joe says so. On “60 Minutes”. Does that mean all the E.O.’s will be lifted and we go back to the legislative process. My prediction is NO. Once a politician gets a power or control, they never let it go. It’s gonna get worse. Get ready, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Yeah, that’s the kiss of death: Democrat California Governor Gavin Newsom will “undeniably, unequivocally” run for president in 2024. The anonymous tipper’s revelation was confirmed — anonymously — to a reporter by “a Los Angeles philanthropist with deep connections in the Democratic Party. Says Uncle Joe;  “Look, my intention, as I said to begin with, is that I would run again,” Biden told CBS’s Scott Pelley. “But it’s just an intention. But is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”

A revolving jail door: What does it take to go to jail in New York City? Apparently swinging an ax at people and chopping up a McDonald’s isn’t enough. Michael Palacios, 31, lost his religion when he repeatedly tried to talk to a woman in a McDonald’s and she wanted no part of him. The video shows patrons trying to keep the angry, would-be lothario from the uninterested woman. The man then throws a punch at one of them and it’s game-on. Several patrons punch the man as he leans against a trash can, almost looking bored with the fracas. Then pulls out a hatchet and goes to town. Palacios escaped but was arrested soon afterward. He was arraigned on fourth-degree criminal mischief and possession-of-weapons charges. And then, thanks to New York’s thug-hugging politicians and their insane no-bail laws, the crazy man was back on the streets in hours. I bet she eats at Burger King now.

One thing to always remember: Never ask a cop for legal advice. There’s nobody with more misinformation than a cop.

Another war: The recent reports of mutilations of an Armenian mother and her comrades was not an aberrant war crime. It has been on display since war first broke out between the two nations in late 2020. The Azeri soldiers are now videotaping their handiwork, which included several other mutilated and beheaded Armenian men, and they can be heard laughing and joking in the background. Similarly, released video footage showed camouflaged soldiers overpowering and forcing down an elderly Armenian man, who cries and implores them for mercy, as they casually try to carve at his throat with a knife. War is brutal, but there are no real justifications for actions like these.

Belated Birthday; Last Wednesday would have been the 108th Birthday of Clayton Moore (9/14/14 – 12/28/1999). Who? He was to many many people, THE Lone Ranger. A Hollywood star before the series, he served in the U.S. Air Force during WW11. According to some sources, Moore completely changed his lifestyle when he began making personal appearances as the Ranger and “stove in his personal life to take the Lone Ranger Creed to heart”.  I am proud to share a birth day with such a man.
