Motes For Little Friday

In response to the relentless trend of terrifying subway attacks (and other street crime) in New York City, Mayor Eric Adams issued new guidance on Tuesday that allows the NYPD, fire department, and social workers to involuntarily commit people suffering from a “mental health crisis.” The order will grant city and state officials the ability to force anyone who appears to be struggling with mental health issues or who is unable to care for themselves into treatment, even if that individual does not pose a danger to the public. A couple of points here.  The words that jump out are “involuntary”, “force anyone who appear” and “doe not pose a danger”. This will turn out as well as the no-bail system.

New York Times columnist David Brooks said he “would be willing to give up certain privacies” in order to have “European style,” strict gun control in America for “protecting the common good.” Brooks — who’s spent much of his career as a political conservative, yet wrote last year that “to be a conservative today, you have to oppose much of what the Republican Party has come to stand for”.  Hey Davey, baby, Ahhh NO. You give up some of your privacy, for oh say 10-15 years. Then we’ll talk. Until then, SDASTFU.

 What are they trying to hide?: This really happened. As Fox News reported more prosaically Tuesday, “President Biden’s rented Secret Service vehicles (5) burst into flames in a parking lot Monday, just one day after he left his Nantucket vacation.” That’s right, all five of the cars that the Secret Service used to allow President Let Them Eat Cake to joyride around Nantucket on yet another one of his endless vacations caught fire. What the heck is going on here?  “The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.”  This story is barely making a ripple in the msm. It’ll be entirely forgotten by Friday.

W T F? : Why is Sam Bankman-Fried walking around? Why hasn’t he done the prep walk? The disgraced founder of bankrupt cryptocurrency exchange FTX has denied rumours he has fled around the same time $US600 million was siphoned from its digital wallets after being “hacked”. Well over $12b dollars missing and he is still having a party in Bermuda.

Gas, Hilo Hawaii, 11/29/22.

I’ll be using this as my base from now on. What are you paying?

Happy Birthday to my Brother Mike Woundy, Miss ya man.
