Little Friday Motes

They are listening: Donald Trump “has no principles” and people “can’t trust him” according to his eldest sister, the first rebuke of the president from any of his siblings to be made public since he took office. In secretly recorded audio published by the Washington Post on Saturday, Maryanne Trump Barry, a retired federal judge, talks candidly to the president’s niece, Mary Trump, about her relationship with her brother, apparently unaware that she is being recorded. Does anyone remember what brought Richard Nixon down? Yep, secret recordings. I guess you should always think someone is listening when you start talking, about anything, to anyone, anywhere.

All lives don’t matter: “RIOTS have broken out in Wisconsin after an unarmed black dad (and wanted sex offender) was shot in the back seven times by a white police officer in front of his children.” The shooting of 29-year-old Jacob Blake in Kenosha has sparked days of rioting across the state as Governor Tony Evers condemned the “excessive use of force”. The riots started that night. Cannon Hinnant is already buried and where’s the outrage? Where? Oh, that’s right, Cannon was a white 5 year-old and his life doesn’t matter.(italics are mine)

Shocked I tell you, shocked: WarnerMedia has launched an investigation into director Joss Whedon after actor Ray Fisher publicly accused him of being abusive on the set of “Justice League.” According to Ray Fisher, who played the role of Cyborg, Whedon’s behavior on set was “gross, abusive, unprofessional, and completely unacceptable.” He was enabled, in many ways, by Geoff Johns and Jon Berg. Seeing Whedon’s rants and vulgar anti-Trump rants, the hypocrisy does not really shock me. Not even a little.

Just listening: There were no late-night host “jokes” during or after the Demo snooze-fest convention. How about the Republican convention? Can anyone say, “all show, every show”?

When I was a kid: My parents used to make fun of my ears and tell me how they stuck out. For close to two years, every night before I went to sleep, I would scotch tape my ears tightly to the side of my head. Training my ears to lay flat. Yes, it hurt every morning taking peeling the tape off. I had no hair beside my ears. It was a good thing that teenage boys hair style was all short back then. Now, I walk around with the damn face mask and its elastic straps and I feel like I’m undoing 2 years of training my ears.

Portland, Seattle, and Kenosha are only the beginning of what is to come. It’s going to get much worse, and people like me who are anti-civil war and want nothing but peace with my countrymen, are about to become severely disappointed. To those who want to tear everything down, be aware of what you start. You may not be prepared to pat what it will cost YOU.

Not sure what is happening this weekend, by I fear there will be some more “Writers Tears” involved. Stay safe.

Thursday Motes Without Covid-19

It ain’t the news anymore: Monday, as President Trump delivered remarks following his nomination, the “CNN Newsroom” cut away from the speech and criticized him for his “misleading” statements and “outright lies.” After cutting the interview, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper noted Trump went “negative” at the convention after promising to be “positive.” He added the president “falsely” attacked mail-in voting and “falsely” accused Democrats of wanting to shut down the country to hurt the economy and thus hurt him at the ballot box. So instead of reporting the news, Cooper gives his opinion and then decides what’s true or false. I cannot believe Walter Cronkite would have allowed this in his broadcasts.

Term limits, now: There is a reason we should term-limit all political positions. Example, Joe Biden. He was been in politics, since 1973, 47 years. Reports say as late as November 2009, Joe Biden’s net worth was less than $30,000. That’s after being a state and federal senator. Forbes now estimates that he has a net worth of $9 million. Pretty good for eight years earning $230k a year. Of course, he now makes all his money from speaking engagements. That’s a lot of speeches in 3 ½ years.

Not news from Reuters: “Giancarlo Granda says his sexual relationship with the Falwells began when he was 20. He says he had sex with Becki Falwell while Jerry Falwell Jr, head of Liberty University and a staunch supporter of President Trump, looked on.” Can anyone explain to me why the “and a staunch supporter of President Trump” was included? What does that have to do with anything in that headline? The whole story is about Falwell’s hypocrisy. In a claim likely to intensify the controversy surrounding one of the most influential figures in the American Christian conservative movement, a business partner of Jerry Falwell Jr has come forward to say he had a years-long sexual relationship involving Falwell’s wife and the evangelical leader. Just what does that have to do with the President? NOTHING.

Always get a second opinion: Workers at a Detroit funeral home discovered a young woman breathing hours after she was declared dead by paramedics and was sent to the mortuary by her grieving family, authorities say. In fact, she was declared dead twice. Once after 30 minutes of CPR. From now on, I want a second opinion anytime I’m declared dead.

First Amendment: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” “Peaceably assemble”, burning a building, throwing rocks at occupied vehicles, and throwing feces filled “balloons” are not
peaceful under anyone’s definition. There was a reason the amendments were kept short.

Motes For Wednesday Thinkers

Make them follow their own rules: The NBA should suspend and fire Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell after he appeared to call Mavericks guard Luka Doncic, a “B*tch Ass white boy”. Work it the other way. The white guy calls the black player a “Punk azz n…..” and Donic would already be out the door and down the road. Racist is racist. No apology needs to be published and he doesn’t have to issue any mea culpa. Just fire his butt and let’s see how he can make a living. Since he doesn’t appear to have any other skills, maybe he can become a day trader. Or learn to write code.

Unfortunately: It’s just like “Al Swearengen” (Deadwood) would say;”You can’t cut the throat of every cxxxxxxxr whose character it would improve.” I know, society frowns on it, even if it would improve society.

Holy crap: Sean Connery is 90. And still looks good. Happy Birthday.

A matched pair: Let’s see, Kamala slept with her boss, he was married at the time. Joe and Jill were both married to other people when they started “dating”. Yep, perfect partners for the White House. Let’s not forget Joe’s “I don’t work for you”, “you’re full of shit”, and the “lying dog faced pony soldier” comments. Nor forget, Harris said “I believe them”, in reference to four women who had by then accused Biden of inappropriate touching.

Not much to interrupt: The second Amendment says “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Joe Biden, by contrast, thinks the relevant question is how many shells Americans are allowed to have in their shotguns when they hunt migratory birds. Would somebody please show me where those 26 words say anything about hunting. Biden also argues that the Second Amendment does not give everyone the right to own any firearm or weapon they want. Again, same 26 words. They don’t say anything about what a citizen can or can’t “keep and bear”.

Something’s happening here: I’ve read in several different places that the sales of “body armor” to private citizens, not military, police, or security, is now up. As much as 510% in some areas. Even Amazon is selling “back to school bulletproof backpacks”. It’s a crappy thing when your kid needs body armor to attend school.

Large sharp pointy objects picture. In celebration of National Knife Day (8/24) I present two more of my favorites. The large one is an “Angus Arbuckle”, made in South Africa and “brought” into the US by the late Al Mar. It is a big one piece of steel. The small one is Spyderco “Taylor” “Hobbit” fighter. I also have the folding REKAT model. It is designed to use in the “reverse”grip and those very aggressive teeth are used for trapping and controlling. They are mean.

It’s Tuesday, These Must Be Motes.

Again: I have mentioned my complaints about the “pharma bro’s” and their price gouges. Well, President Trump signed an executive order about the costs of prescription medication and what did the pharma-bros do? They raised prices again. One of Julies went from $21 to $300 in one step. This is on top of the price raises last year. I believe this is in response Trumps orders about medication and prices. It’s a big “f you”. The only ones being “f’d” here are folks like me and you. Unfortunately nobody is telling Trump that his move has backfired on the rest of us. I also don’t think he reads this blog, maybe he should.

Stimulate the economy, my ass:Let’s look at some of the FAT in the new Democrat “stimulus” bill; $2,00 per person to start, $1,000 per month for 1 year, Non-citizens will be eligible, amnesty for ALL illegal persons in the US regardless of past criminal record, lower the voting age to 16 y-o; go ahead for the “new green deal’, funding for “Planned Parenthood. The only thing this will. “stimulate” is fraud. Lots and lots of fraud.

This one is liable to anger up the blood; From “valorguardians”. Caution! Caution! Read no further if you’re not at a place in your morning to be pissed off at someone. Morgan Olson of Deer Park, Wisconsin has a severely autistic son. She found a group, Service Dogs by Warren Retrievers. They told her that she could fund raise for the cost of the dog. That cost isn’t given in the article, but she eventually raised $20,000 from friends, family, and the community. SDWR sent a message that they were on the list for a dog. Since then it’s been silence, the money is God knows where, and Nolan Olson doesn’t have a dog to help him cope with his limitations. Dan Warren is listed as the “Founder and President” of Service Dogs. The website shows “Gabby” is part of the “Client Services team” and currently lives in Rixeyville, VA. Ivan, but no last name, is in marketing and says “I decided to work at SDWR because I no longer have a desire to stay in sales”. This is the lowest of the low. This is one of those times I really regret the loss of the right to “demand satisfaction by trial of arms”, you know dueling.

Follow the money: It is an old cop moto, but I wonder where all the money raised by BLM Inc.(and it is an “Inc”) has gone. I haven’t read about BLM cleaning any streets. Starting any schools? Not even feeding the “starving children of the world”. Where does it all go? How come nobody in congress or Washington D.C, wants to see their “tax” records? Just asking for a friend.

Weekend was great for Monday Motes

Food for late night: Last week suffered through 4 days of the Democrat convention. I haven’t heard one Late Night Comedian joke about it. Not one. And I’m betting we never do.

Many times?:
The leader of the opposition to the rule of Russian President Vladimir Putin became violently ill on an airplane and had to be removed and taken to the hospital after the plane made an emergency landing. Putin is a prime suspect, simply because he’s done it many times before. (?) In 2018, Pyotr Verzilov, another prominent Kremlin critic, was rushed to the hospital suffering from similar symptoms as Navalny. In truth, Navalny and other Russian opposition leaders are tilting at windmills. They haven’t a ghost of a chance unseating Putin or limiting his enormous power. And “they” call Trump a “dictator”.

It’s just me: Am I the only one that spit coffee through his nose when I read “David Pecker leaves helm of National Inquirer”?

They just don’t see it: Having a conversation, the other day with an ultra-liberal friend of mine and we stated talking about the “peaceful protesters”. He mentioned the peaceful security representative that was shot while pointing his unloaded AK-47 at a man in a vehicle, who subsequently shot and “murdered” said security rep. I disagreed it was any crime. He promptly pointed out the AK was “unloaded” and therefor the shooting was a murder by the vehicle driver. I politely pointed out that anyone who carries and points an unloaded weapon at anyone, is only there to threaten and intimidate others as he knows he cannot defend nor protect anyone. He gets what he deserves. I didn’t even bring up the girlfriend in the wheelchair.

Ever wonder how we got to this point: How did a nation that defined itself with the superlatives, “land of the free and the home of the brave,” “America the Beautiful“ and “one nation under God” turn into a broken culture with no boundaries, no borders, no law, no order and no soul so fast? On Aug. 10, Matthew Kay, a Philadelphia teacher, wondered openly on Twitter how he and his fellow teachers would cope with an unwanted intrusion in this new era of online education. In his post, Mr. Kay, who teaches English at the Science Leadership Academy, a Philadelphia public school, expressed his concern about the “damage” that “parents” might cause if they overheard the lessons he had prepared for their children. This is probably one of those “teachers” that want parents to swear not to listen in while they “teach” out children. There is a reason they don’t want us to listen in. We surrendered our parental responsibilities to the “educators”. We stopped going to PTA meetings and asking out kids “What did you learn in school toady?” That’s when we lost.

Sunday Rant – DTI

As always, John hits it on the head.

“A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason”
Cicero

We Americans were always told to believe that both political parties were made-up of good people who cared about this country, whose motivations were always respectable, but who disagreed on the best way to administer national policy.
Unhappily, most of us have known for some time that the foregoing is not true!

Democrats (Communists) have gone far beyond mere “disagreement.” There true motivation is highly suspect.
They are not good people.
Communists never are!

Through their proxies, ANTIFA, BLM (whom they enthusiastically support, endorse, and aggressively enable), Democrats threaten, vandalize, burn, and attack us and our rights. They steal and destroy both private and public property. They brutally attack (physically) Republicans, Christians, Jews, capitalists, property-owners, tax-payers, and others among their non-supporters in an attempt to maim, injure, and murder.
The falsely claim that political violence is practiced by “both sides”
That is not true!

Conservatives don’t riot, vandalize, and physically attack Democrats!
Conservatives live in fear of being attacked!
Democrat politicians are unconcerned with representing constituents. Many actually promote and encourage physical violence against anyone who doesn’t vote for them. Their abject hatred “justifies” all the political violence they can imagine!

When president, BHO unapologetically referred to non-supporters of him and his party as “our enemies.” “Enemies,” because we sometimes exercise our First-Amendment Rights, even our Second-Amendment rights!
No president before him ever referred to those of us among his fellow citizens who didn’t vote for him as “enemies!”
He tried to create his own version of the NKVD. Thank heaven that attempt failed!

As we see, Kamala has now picked-up the theme!
Today’s ANTIFA and BLM rioters are to be reorganized into widely-dispersed cadres of nationalized, and armed, “thought police” and “street enforcers,” in the same manner as Maduro’s dreaded “Colectivos” in Communist Venezuela.
Yes, it can happen here!

Our names are all currently on a “List.” (Communists love to keep lists!)
When in power, she will do exactly what she has openly promised!

For one, I believe her!

“When your house is broken into, plundered, and finally set on fire by persons whom you considered friends, have the latter any right to call you a ‘traitor,’ because, in despair, you opened your window and screamed for help?”

They have the lists. It’s just some of us appear on too many of them.

Saturday Story – Summer of ’69

Summer of ‘69

I was an Air Force “Air Police”, now known as the USAF Security Forces, for my four-year enlistment. From late 1968 until my discharge in 1970, I was a member of one of the most unique Military Police Units. It was then known as Hawaii Armed Services Police, or simply HASP.
What made the unit so unique was its makeup, a totally multi-service off-base military police unit. And I mean “multi-service”. The Commanding Officer (CO) was an Army Lieutenant Colonel; the Executive Officer (XO) was a Navy Lieutenant commander; the NCO in Charge (NCOIC) was a Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant; the NCO in charge of investigations/plain clothes was an Air Force Technical Sergeant; all the radio operators were Coast Guardsman; all the medics were Navy. Every shift had an “officer of the watch”, a junior lieutenant from one of the services. See what I mean? Unique
We worked 12 hour shifts, seven days a week, patrolling Waikiki, Hotel street (downtown Honolulu), the Honolulu Airport and Fort DeRussy. Patrols were two-man vehicles with a supervisor for each area, and we always attempted to mix services in each vehicle.
HASP’s duty was to take care of off duty military personal and as much as possible, to keep them out of trouble and out of civilian jail.
We worked closely with the Honolulu Police Department who would turn minor miscreants over to our custody instead of hauling them off to jail. We would then notify the respective command that would in turn dispatch their own MP’s to take the wayward serviceman back to face his commander.
During these years, all installations were running at full strength, there were also hundreds of R and R service personnel in and out of Hawaii every five to ten days. We stayed busy.
All of the personnel were hand selected by the CO and the XO, and they were picky. It was not easy to get selected and it was just as hard to stay in the unit. Complaints were thoroughly investigated and followed up, and if you had a complaint sustained, you were returned to your parent unit. Immediately.
We also trained harder physically, than any military or civilian police unit I have ever worked with. We were trained on take downs, holds, and especially what is now called a rear naked choke. The idea was the quicker you got a suspect under control the less chance that anybody would get seriously hurt.
Remember, we had a lot of dealings with men on R and R; you could be facing a guy that 48 hours ago was in a firefight with the Viet Cong or the NVA. These were guys that were drinking to numb the feelings that nobody really understood, and sometimes it took more drink than they could handle. To use a line from a recent movie, we were often facing men who were trained killers.
Sometimes these men would strike out not so much as to hurt anyone, but to hurt themselves in an attempt to realize they could still feel something.
The civilian police didn’t want to lock these guys up and tried to understand. Sometimes the GI would get loud, abusive, and physical; they would call us. It was our job to take them into custody. And as much as possible, without anyone getting hurt.
Many of the HASP members were career military, and the rest, like myself, planned a career in law enforcement after discharge. This ensured a very professional group of M.P.s.
It was the beginning of the Viet Nam protest era. Young men and women began to think for themselves instead of blindly following their parents or teachers without question. However, they found themselves following the lead of people that were just as one way as they accused everyone else of being.
HASP was always present at the Fort DeRussy R&R center whenever the buses loaded or unloaded. There were often anti-war protesters on the sidewalks with signs and megaphones and their language would get very vile. Many times their filthy comments were directed at the wives or children of the G.I.s who just wanted to spend a few days with their loved one. HASP did its best to keep these people from entering the loading/unloading areas.
In early August 1969 the anti-war movement took a big step forward. A young soldier declared he wasn’t going to return to Viet Nam at the end of his R&R. He entered a small Methodist church near the University of Hawaii and requested “sanctuary”. The Church of the Crossroads in Honolulu suddenly became a focal point in the national anti-war movement.
Within a few days 20 – 24 more servicemen requested sanctuary and a second church, the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu, entered the fray and accepted half of those asking. By the end of the week, there were 24 known A.W.O.L. servicemen in the two churches, literally hundreds of supporters, and nobody seemed to know what to do.
The concept of “Sanctuary” is deeply rooted in common law and until the 17th century was recognized as a legal concept. Today, as well as in 1969, there is no legal standing for church sanctuary, only that of political sanctuary in the embassy of a foreign nation.
What the real problem was, nobody wanted to be responsible for the storm of really bad publicity that would explode against whoever decided not to honor the church sanctuary.
So the generals, admirals, and politicians dithered and blathered and the longer they waited the more public opinion turned against them. There was an update on every news cast, every day.
August turned to September and nothing happened. In the late hours of Thursday September 11th, I received a telephone call from the unit NCOIC. In no uncertain terms I was ordered to report to the station immediately, the uniform of the day would be fatigues, and I was not to tell anyone where I was going.
By 2 am, September 12th everyman assigned to HASP was in the dayroom speculating on what was happening. Everyone was in fatigues instead of the usual khaki or Navy whites we normally wore.
About 2:30 am a two star general walked into the room and we knew this was going to be big.
The general addressed us in a quiet, calm but all business voice. He had been sent to put an end to the sanctuary. The federal court had verified there was no legal standing for the movement and we would be ending it today.
He told us we were about to become part of U.S. military history. He congratulated us, wished us good luck, and walked off.
The unit XO and the Gunny stepped up and began filling in the blanks. We were divided into two groups, one for each church.
Each group would be run by an officer and a senior NCO. Each group would have 2 “paddy” wagons for prisoner transport, and there would be three five man teams for each location. There would be armed NCOs in each of the teams and they would make the arrests. There had been federal warrants issued for the arrest of those identified and several “John Doe” warrants were available.
Both groups would move to a staging area and then launch simultaneous and coordinated “no knock” operation. They then read the names and assignments. I was assigned to the Crossroads team.
Honolulu Police Officers would be advised over their radio to stay clear until we were finished.
As soon as that radio call went out, we got our “GO” signal.
Doors were literally kicked down; people were pulled out of beds and cots, or yanked from sleeping bags and identified.
As soon as the action started the police switchboard lighted up with calls, but they were too late.
By 8:30 am that morning the Hawaii chapter of the Sanctuary Movement was over. A total of 23 servicemen had been apprehended and transported to the HASP station.
Numerous complaints of property damage, excessive use of force, terroristic threatening and about anything else you could think of were filed, but nothing ever happened. It was a different time.
The apprehended servicemen were all removed from Hawaii and faced charges under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice by their commands.
Three or four weeks later, all the HASP participants received letters of commendation from their respective Commanding General.
Later, several more attempts to claim sanctuary were made all over the country but were quickly dealt with by the military authorities. The precedent had been set. No sanctuary.
There were more anti-war protests in Honolulu, including the 1971 burning of the U of H ROTC building. The fire was ruled “arson” but no arrests were made. One of the anti-war movement leaders, a U of H professor, later became a state senator, member of the House, and state Governor.
Funny that.

Friday,With Beer and Cheetos, Motes

A sad city, and we’ll have to bail them out: On the day after Night 82 of The Portland Riots™ the new police chief is begging rioters to please stop because “the world is watching. We are on the national stage right now.” Too late. On night 82 of the riots, police reported a marauding mob of “several hundred” rioters set fire to the Multnomah County Building just across the river from their previous favorite targets in downtown Portland. That’s where the county commission holds its meetings, social services are doled out, and executives with the sheriff’s office and other top executives have their offices. It also turns out that it’s where the region’s store of COVID-fighting personal protection equipment (PPE) is stored. Mayor Ted Wheeler weighed in after Night 82 of The Portland Riots™ that he was shocked – shocked – that buildings were damaged. However, the mayor cheered on the protesters. Excuse me, when they are burning buildings, especially occupied buildings, they are not “protesters” they are rioters. Bullies. And you don’t beg bullies. The only answer was swift and overwhelming force. Now it’s too late. And the worse part is they’ll soon start asking for federal money, your tax money, to rebuild.

I wasn’t right, this time: Back in January I said the Democrat p think they have arty candidate would be E. Warren and the V-P would be an unknown, minority that would be touted as the next Obama. I figured Well, I was right about the “minority” part. But Harris is no “second Obama”. She brings more baggage that she does potential votes. Wait and see who the Dem’s start showing off as the next leader around June of next year. They’ll push that person for the next three years. They’ll promote, and promote the hell out of whoever it is. All for 2024.

Stay low: Lot’s to be said in favor of being a “grey man” right now. With “protesters” marching outside private homes, and beating the stuffing out of a “Pinata” that looks like the homeowners wife, it’s a good time to not be noticed.

Not a surprise: As the national media continues to race bait and paint the narrative that black people are the perpetual victims of white men, they are selectively ignoring senseless murders depending on the skin color of the suspects. A mother in California is currently mourning the death of her only son, 18-year-old Nathan Garza, who was killed by a black man with seemingly no connection to the victim on Sunday. Garza was shot outside the Safeway in Napa County where he worked. Appears to have just walked up and shot him. Kinda like Cannon Hinnant. Oh yeah, the MSM is ignoring him too.

Remember; Don’t do stupid things; Don’t go stupid places; and DON’T ASSOCIATE WITH STUPID PEOPLE. Stay safe.

Thursday Motes For Learning

It says something when any television professional wrestling show has better production values then the Democratic National Convention.

Not one: Over 300 thousand bikers in Sturgis S.D. for 10 days and NOT ONE SHOOTING. Last weekend; Detroit 20 shootings, 7 deaths; Philadelphia 30 shot, 7 dead; Chicago 62 shot, 4 dead; San Francisco, unknown shootings, 4 dead; New York 51 shot, 6 dead. A bunch of drunken partying bikers, none.

Maybe it’s just me: On my last 2 flights to Hilo there has been an obviously armed member of Homeland Security on board.

Would the last person leaving Honolulu, please turn out the lights: Hawaii, specifically Honolulu, has nothing but tourism. Everything else, construction, sales, real estate, everything, depends on tourists coming here and spending money. There is no manufacturing that is not dependent on the tourist dollar. There is limited U of H research but it’s not enough to float the state. Pineapple and sugar are forgotten crops. Marijuana is grown legal and cheaper in other states. The governor and the mayor have just added another 28 days lockdown, which will mean over 6 months without the tourist dollar. Just turn out the lights and close the door.

Please think first; Early last month a friend of mine shot himself. The CDC just announced, one in four young adults aged 18-24 reported seriously contemplating suicide within the last 30 days, according to new data released last week from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Sixteen percent of those aged 25-44 reported the same as restrictions in the name of COVID-19 implemented to slow its spread promise to stretch into the fall. More than 10 percent of all respondents in the 5,412 person survey said they had given serious consideration to the irreversible act. The national suicide hotline is 1-800-273-8255.

Yes, it really works.

Wicked Wednesday Motes

Another movie review: I also love “B” action movies. And the “King” of the “B” movies is Eric Roberts. I do not like his politics; I have a weakness for his movies. Last week I saw the King of the B movies in what I would consider the “King Movie of B Movies”, “The Butcher”. Featuring another B King, Robert Davi, “The Butcher” is a great afternoon/evening movie for just enjoying and drinking beer. Bad guys, worse guys, and a good woman. Shootouts and lots of snappy dialog it’s a perfect B movie. Oh, and give a listen to some of Davi’s singing if you get a chance. Especially if you enjoy Sinatra.

Just saying: “Paris Hilton Cries over Childhood Trauma in Documentary Trailer: ‘No One Really Knows Who I Am’” and nobody cares either.

Once again: I live on the 11th floor. If I can hear your car stereo, it’s too damn loud!!!!!

History lives
: In 1971, Nixon passed a rule to doom the Post Office. Now it’s finally happening. Previously a federally funded cabinet-level department, Pres¬i¬dent Richard Nixon over¬hauled the Post Office in 1971, which cre¬at¬ed what we know today as the USPS. The move fol¬lowed a wave of mil¬i¬tan¬cy by more than 200,000 clerks and carriers in 30 major cities who walked off the job for high¬er pay and collective bargaining rights The Unit¬ed States Postal Service (USPS) was in trouble before the Covid-19 out¬break, but now it’s fighting for its life  officials predict a $13 billion revenue loss amid declining mail volume this year alone and warn the agency will run out of cash by September unless Congress steps in. But it’s all trumps fault.

Local news: “A Honolulu resident who spent years working for the Central Intelligence Agency and as a contractor for the Federal Bureau of Investigation was charged Monday with spying on the U.S. and selling state secrets to China.” And for once I don’t know the guy.

Yeah, sure he will: Though recently sworn in Multnomah County District Attorney Mike Schmidt has elected to drop charges on most of the protesters who have been arrested in Portland over the last 2 1/2 months of nightly “unlawful assemblies” and riots, he has announced that plans on pursuing charges against the terrorists who pulled a man out of his truck and beat him senseless in the street. I don’t believe this for a minute. I’ve always used “judging by past results” school of thought and this clown has very poor past results.
