Motes For A Tuesday

Would somebody please take the camera away from Madonna? Please?

Caught between two of them: Hawaii’s Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active volcano, started erupting Sunday night and lava was flowing from its summit by Monday morning, the U.S. Geological Survey said. The lava wasn’t expected to threaten populated areas, officials said. “Lava flows are not threatening any downslope communities and all indications are that the eruption will remain in the Northeast Rift Zone,” the USGS. Residents were also warned volcanic gas, ash and thin glass fibers known as Pele’s Hair could be carried downwind. Yep, I got Mauna Kea on one side, and Mauna Loa on the other.  Probably should’a planned that better.

Have I got this right: You leave your country of birth to move to a “better” life. Then you riot and burn down a city, in your “better” country, when your country of birth wins a freakin’ soccer match. Does this make any sense to you? Sure doesn’t to me.

A recent editorial: “Gun owners don’t seek counseling, for possessing guns. I’ve never heard of Gun Owners Anonymous, or Killers Are Us. But co-victims of gun violence need emotional support. Maybe we need to introduce a gun tax for Co-Victims Support. You owe us. Your GUN damaged us. There was no blood involved. A co-victim is someone who is connected to someone who was shot, or to a shooter. But, damn, we are damaged. We know what triggered—pun intended—our issues. It was a gun. Pay up. Let’s add a special gun tax that goes exclusively to treat the 7 co-victims of every shooting.We need that Gun Tax. Co-Victims deserve it. Gun owners owe us.” So let’s tax all the gun owners that don’t commit crimes, make them pay for the criminals, the ones you won’t put in jail. So, next we make the car makers pay for the drunk drivers and the distilleries for the alcoholics. Seems about right.

Learn from my mistakes: Long long ago I signed up with a local gym. Three weeks later I fell and broke my back in two places. I notified the gym and advised them I would not be using the facilities or making payment. Five years later, I was served with court papers suing me for the full 2 year contract. I even went to court, I still had to pay.

I skipped Black Friday because my hatred of mankind outweighs my love of stuff.
