Motes, Monday, Meh

Maany questions: Armed guards were a fixture outside the marijuana growing operation in rural Oklahoma where four people were slain execution-style. the victims — three men and one woman, all Chinese citizens — were shot dead, “executed” on the 10-acre (4-hectare) property west of Hennessey, a town about 55 miles (90 kilometers) northwest of Oklahoma City. Oklahoma voters legalized medical marijuana in 2018, and the industry quickly boomed thanks to an open-ended law that put in place fewer restrictions than in other states.  The majority of the workers spoke no English and were never saw off of the property. That has led locals to raise concerns about the working conditions. My first, and foremost, question is : Why is an Oklahoma pot farm inhabited and run by solely by Chinese?

It’s predictable: During a press event in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Thanksgiving, President Biden told reporters that he would push Congress to enact “stricter gun laws” before Republicans take control of the House of Representatives at the start of the new year. The “commander in chief” told reporters outside the Nantucket Fire Department, “The idea we still allow semiautomatic weapons to be purchased is sick. It’s just sick. It has no, no social redeeming value. Zero. None. Not a single, solitary rationale for it except profit for the gun manufacturers.” You knew this was going to happen, and it was predictable they will try to do it while they still have control. And that is what it’s all about CONTROL.

Needs to go to Vegas: A Carnival cruise ship passenger fell overboard into the Gulf of Mexico and was found alive against all odds on Thanksgiving Day — more than 15 hours after vanishing, officials said. The missing man, who hasn’t been identified, was with his sister at the Carnival Valor’s bar at 11 p.m. Wednesday when he took a bathroom break and never came back. The sibling didn’t report her brother gone until noon the next day,  prompting the Cozumel, Mexico-bound ship to retrace its sailing path toward New Orleans Thursday, said Carnival spokesperson Matt Lupoli. It was reported to the US Coast Guard at around 2:30 p.m. and search crews quickly launched a rescue mission by land and sea over a 200-mile area of the Gulf of Mexico.This guy falls off the boat, in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico, and is found 15 hours later. He needs to go to Vegas and bet big, now. 

Good news, maybe: California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said he won’t run for president in 2024, even if Uncle Joe  declines to run for another term. I know I breathed a sigh of relief. Can you imagine a country run like Calipornia?
