Thursday Motes To Ponder Before Friday

Not just “Murder, She Wrote”: She’s won 12 “Emmy’s”. She’s been nominated for an “Oscar” 3 times, and now she’s getting ‘Special Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Theatre”. Angela Lansbury, 96, already has 5 “Tony’s” before this award. She is now the oldest living Oscar nominee. You may not know but in her early days, Ms. Lansbury was a beautiful woman and played many ingénue parts. Congratulations Ms. Lansbury.

 A sad Good-Bye; (From Valorguardians) The heartwarming story of Raleigh Nayes. He received the Congressional Gold Medal on behalf of his old unit, the WWII Merrill’s Marauders. He was only one of three of the roughly 3,000 men that served in the unit that were still alive. The Marauders were a special operations force in the China-India-Burma Theater of the Pacific War. They were one of the precursors to the modern Army Rangers and Special Forces. Nayes received the CGM on April 20, 2022. He past in his sleep, that night, at the Age of 99. He now has joined his Comrades in Arms at the Table of Heroes. Rest in Peace.

Only one reason: Charges against rapper 16-year-old Camrin Williams, also known as C-Blu, have been dropped after he allegedly shot an NYPD officer. Williams allegedly shot an officer in the leg when the two struggled after he refused police orders. Williams was already on probation for a prior gun case. It has been announced the “rapper” will face no charges. No reason for the lack of charges has been given. Excuse me? A juvenile, who is prohibited by state and federal law from owning or possessing a handgun, shoots a cop while on probation for a prior case involving an illegal handgun and there are no charges? Who’d he snitch out?

Are they kidding? The “Real Housewives of Dubai”? Give me a break. Or maybe, “Oh, gag me with a spoon”.

Why is it, every time someone starts to rock the boat, someone makes a “sexual” misconduct complaint about them. Remember, one is chance, twice is happenstance, 3 times is enemy action.

Our Constitution under attack: Australia has an eSafety Commissioner named Julie Inman-Grant.  While delivering remarks to the World Economic Forum summit in Davos, Switzerland, she outlined a new on-line era where free speech would need to be “recalibrated,” and the ability to be free from something called “on-line violence.” Remember, Speech the leftists do not like, they call violence; and violence the leftists support, they call speech. Of course, this is at the “World Economic Forum” so this will apply to “everyone”. Free Speech is a matter of interpretation. Please remember that Ms. Inman-Grant worked for 17 years for that other promotor of the NWO, Bill Gates.

The brilliance is blinding: From “thegregariousloner.blogspot.”In a stunning and brilliant move, the Biden administration used a military aircraft to deliver 3 days’ worth of baby formula from Germany to the USA. In an equally stunning but not quite as brilliant move, it turns out they had zero plans on distributing the formula, and it’s sitting in a warehouse while they take a few months to figure something out.*Updated, to the best of my knowledge… The formula, a special kind for babies allergic to regular milk, went straight to its manufacturer’s (Nestle) US facility. There, they say “A few cases” will go out at once, and the rest will wait for “Quality testing” before being released into the supply stream. They also say none will reach store shelves.

It’s Tuesday Motes, (oh goody.)

How dare you: Recently Nasty Nan Pelosi was denied communion by San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore J. Cordileone . This is because her stance on abortion is not in keeping with the Church’s values. Now we have know-it-all Goldberg saying the Archbishop has no business deciding whether Pelosi can receive Holy Communion or not. Actually, it’s exactly his job. The Archbishop made numerous attempts to speak with Speaker Pelosi ; “ to help her understand the grave evil she is perpetrating, the scandal she is causing, and the danger to her own soul she is risking”. Only then was this step taken. Incidentally, Ms. Goldberg, you self-identify as Jewish, you “have no business deciding” anything for a Catholic. Whoppie, please STFDASTFU. 

Me neither: The newest world scourge is “Monkeypox”. The Wuhan Institute of Virology assembled a monkeypox virus genome, allowing the virus to be identified through PCR tests, using a method researchers flagged for potentially creating a “contagious pathogen.” The study was published in February 2022. Anybody really surprised? Anybody seeing a common denominator?

Question: If a man in prison, identifies as a woman; does he/she get conjugal visits from his/her girl/boy-friend?

 Scare the crap outta ya: David Miguel,9, needed to use the potty during a soccer game Saturday. So he went inside, and found a growling jaguar in a school bathroom. “I was trembling like jelly. It went ‘grrr’ and my heart almost stopped,” he told local media. The youngster said he ran back to his dad to report his finding. Local authorities arrived at the school and tranquilized the jaguar. The animal was released into the wild unharmed. Bet David didn’t need any help “going”.

My previous prediction: Nobody involved with Shrilary and her shenanigan’s will do a day. Still think so.

BAWA: A Nigerian state legislator, Okechukwu Okoye, went missing last week in the southeastern state of Anambra, where the government accuses separatists of carrying out a spate of killings and kidnappings. His head was found on Saturday night in a park in the Nnewi south local government area, Anambra state police spokesman Tochukwu Ikenga said. Amnesty International said last August that Nigerian security forces had killed at least 115 people in the southeast in the first eight months of 2021 and arbitrarily arrested or tortured scores of others. Something stands out here, the article seems to  report on a Nigerian politician killed, but then ends with a comment on the “arbitrary” actions of the government forces. Last year. I guess this is what is called “balanced” news.

History sort of repeats: I’m not really old enough, never thought I’d say that, to remember the “Berlin Airlift”. That was when the US and allies airlifted massive amounts of food and supplies into “Werst Berlin’ after the Soviet Union isolated the city. This was after 5 years of complete scorched earth warfare. In 16 months, 480 days, the US has gone from a thriving economy, oil independence, and zero inflation, to having Germany send baby formula “Berlin Airlift” style. The White House says 132 pallets of Nestlé Health Science Alfamino Infant and Alfamino Junior formula will leave Ramstein Air Base in Germany and arrive in the U.S. this weekend. Another 114 pallets of Gerber Good Start Extensive HA formula are expected to arrive in the coming days. I weep for my country.

Tuesday Motes, With Traffic Reports

Headline: “Why Is Jill Biden Going on Diplomatic Missions Again?” (Or at all?) Is it time to ask who’s really in charge of the country again? It’s been widely speculated for over a year now that it’s not Joe Biden, and in some ways, that’s probably a good thing. His mental fitness has come into question numerous times over the years and was even an issue frequently brought up by Republicans but ignored by the mainstream media during the 2020 campaign. We know Harris is an idiot. She can’t string a coherent thought together, even with the help of her writers, who also seem pretty bad. So, who IS running things? Inquiring minds want to know? It’s just none of those minds are demorats.

Teach your children: In the first 5 months of 2022, there have been at least 135 teachers and assistants Arrested for committing heinous sex crimes against their students. At least 102 of the 135 arrests directly involved sex crimes with a student at the school the teacher was employed. Thursday there was a story about a teacher being turned in by her husband when he found she was having a “relationship” with a 16-17 y-o female student. Parents repeatedly try to publicly read passages from the schools “recommended” reading list of books but are shut down because it is “too graphic” to read “for the record”. American parents are fed up and they should be. Now we need to convert “fed up” into votes, conservative leaders, and a return to common values and decency.

Nope: Does anyone really believe Uncle Joe has closed down his Disinformation Governance Board? Me either. Hey, The “DGB”, sounds kinda like the old russian KGB? And probably will act like it. They’ll wait until the ho ha ha dies down, quietly restart it, and not pay any attention to what we peasants want.

Success story: In 1975 Jonathan Searle and his brother acting in Spielberg’s “Jaws” filmed in Oak Bluffs, Massachusetts. They were remembered as two pranksters who swam with a cardboard shark fin and created panic on a crowded beach. Searle gave up his career of acting to follow in his father’s footsteps of becoming a police officer. Jonathan’s father, George Searle, served on the force and eventually became a police chief between 1981 and 1995. As an officer, Searle helped lead Project Outreach, an initiative that pairs recovery coaches with officers struggling with addictions and helps them get into recovery programs. Now, by a vote of 3 to 1, he is now Chief of Police for Oak Bluffs. Congratulations, Chief.

I met him, I wasn’t impressed: Duane Chapman, aka “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” reacted to the Buffalo shooting by claiming that Americans should have to get a mental health card from a doctor before buying a gun. “Here’s my idea after 40 some years of experience. You need a mental health card from a doctor that says you qualify to be able to own a gun.” Forty years of experience? Pretty good talk from someone who hasn’t been allowed to own or possess a firearm for 47 years due to his FELONY conviction. Duane you’ve been reading far too much of your own publicity. And believing it. I think you need a mental exam if you think anybody should listen to you about anything.

Science stuff: There is Dark matter, which affects the universe. There is Anti-matter which affects atoms And, there is doesn’t-matter, which seems to have no effect on anything.

Gas 5/21/22. What are you paying?

Another Set Of Monday Motes

How does this happen?: A 15-year-old girl attended a Dallas Mavericks basketball game at the American Airlines Center with her dad on April 8, 2022. She got up to use the restroom and never came back. The girl went to the restroom before halftime. When she didn’t return, the father told security she was missing. They “searched”. Security video showed her leaving with a much older man. The Dallas police told the parents to call the North Richland police who told them to call the Dallas police. Not much good there. The parents contacted the Houston-based Texas Counter-Trafficking Initiative. I guess they are a private-investigation firm. They found the girl in less than 2 days. She was being trafficked. She was rescued, but after being held for 10 days, being repeatedly raped and abused. Why did it take a private company to do the Law Enforcement job? Why did the cops keep passing the buck?  What about the “clients”? Are they being id’d? Was the “older” man acquainted with the girl? Lots of questions here.

Or this: Jayden Hayden (22) filmed himself beating the seniors in their beds until they were bleeding. One victim was identified as a 75-year-old veteran. The veteran was later moved to another facility, where he died. Hayden was arrested and charged shortly after his videos of him abusing elderly victims went viral. Hayden was originally sent to the nursing home facility to recover from Coronavirus so not only was he abusing elderly patients, but he was also spreading Covid. Hayden’s father argued that his son is not a vicious person and that he’s a victim of the system. “He was in crisis,” Marty Hayden said of his son, who had a history of violent behavior. The charges against Jaden Hayden were dropped this week after declaring him incompetent to face trial. He has a history of violence, attacks those that cannot defend themselves, video records the attacks and knows how to post them on the interwebz, but is “incompetent” to stand trial. Am I the only one yelling “horse shat”?

Aren’t we taking this “Anybody can be President” just a little too far?

Blast from the past: The FBI is investigating potential “criminal enterprise activities” of the Vallejo chapter of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, including the possession of guns, silencers, and more than 1,000 rounds of ammo seized in a series of December raids, court records show. News of the investigation comes as three Hells Angels members are standing trial in a racketeering and murder case centering on the Hells Angels of Sonoma County. That case stems from a series of arrests in 2017, involves more than a dozen defendants and allegations that members of charters in Fresno, Sonoma, Boston, and elsewhere conspired to murder a Hells Angels sergeant-at-arms and dispose of his body through an illegal cremation. I say a blast from the past because they (the HA) have been out of the headlines for the last couple of years. But, here they are again. Of course, the first one to testify is an “undercover officer” that “infiltrated” the HA chapter. A snitch. If there is more than 3, 1 is an informant.

Not one: NY Gov. Kathy Hochul on Wednesday declared domestic terrorism to be public enemy No. 1 while announcing moves to prevent future massacres like the racist-fueled in Buffalo dead last weekend. A legislative package and executive orders that she unveiled aims to prevent future attacks by tightening state gun laws, increasing social media monitoring by law enforcement and directing state police to more aggressively seize guns from potential shooters under the state’s red flag Law. State Police will file what is called an Extreme Risk Protection Order to seize weapons or prevent gun purchases by potential threats under the red flag law “whenever they have probable cause to believe that an individual is a threat to themselves or others”. This will not stop a single crime. And the “probable cause” will be abused so badly it will end up being used whenever someone disagrees with them.  

Update: Remember the Japanese guy that got all the towns “covid funds” and took off? Well, Sho Taguchi says he gambled most of the money away online. The 24-year-old has been arrested, police said Thursday, after admitting having spent most of the money that was intended as pandemic relief for low-income households. The funds, about $360,000 (US) were transferred to an account believed to be an online gambling site. Police declined to say how much of the money he actually gambled away, though they said he told them that it was most of it. I think he’ll probably have to find a new place to live.

Weekend playlist was the tracks from the 1999 “Ryman Auditorium Country Family Gathering”. Hosted by Ralph Emory and Bobby Bare it had most of the country greats just sitting playing and singing for their peers. Wow, just awesome.

Last week I posted the picture of Johnny and June. Well, I found these in my collection over the weekend.

Their biography’s.

Their signatures.

Sunday – No Rant

I’m just bone tired of reading the news lately.

It’s depressing, demoralizing, and just plain awful. I’m tired of being angry at everything and everybody.

Today, I’m going to tell my wife how much I love her. I’m going to sit and recall some of the great times we’ve had and the people we shared them with.

I’m going to play with the dog, give her some extra treats, and sit and watch the sky for a while.

I suggest you do the same. For sanity sake.

Saturday Story

The past few weeks I’ve been telling stories that show my off-step sense of humor. That humor was a necessary survival tool. There were just too many incidents like this one.

Lady in Waiting

The call said “possible suicide, overdose”. It was correct.
The victim was lying face down on the floor when I got there. The paramedics were right behind me. They went right to work and I started getting the story.

She was sixteen. The family was Chinese, from Hong Kong, the parents didn’t speak English but the victim and her sister were raised in Honolulu and considered themselves American.

I couldn’t see her face while the medic’s worked, but from the pictures on every wall I could see she was pretty. The pictures showed a shy looking, pretty girl just reaching the first bloom of womanhood.

Her sister was translating for the mother. Little sister was about 13 or 14 and when the mother stopped, the sister starting telling me the real background. The real story the parents would never acknowledge.

 She told me her sister had finally gone on a “real” date and the boy treated her really nice. He was older, he would graduate that year, but had already been accepted to the University of Hawaii. He seemed to have a good sense of where he was going.

The problem was he was Filipino. Mother and Father could not stand that. They told her she wasn’t to see him anymore. She tried to tell them how good he was and how he made her feel. They didn’t want to hear it.

She just knew it would be okay if they just would meet him and talk with him. They would see.

So she invited him over for dinner last night. She didn’t tell her family until just before he was to arrive.

Her father answered the door. He then shut it in the boy’s face, refusing to let her speak to him. He then locked her in her bedroom.

So the next day she left school early, about 9:30, and went home. She went home alone and swallowed 15-20 of her mother’s prescription sleeping pills. It was almost 5:00 before anyone came home and found her. That’s when they called.

I watched the paramedics working on her and thought what a waste. Then I realized one of the paramedic’s was looking at me from where he was air- bagging the girl. When he was sure no one else was looking, he slowly shook his head. She was already dead; they were just going through the motions for the family.

They put her on a gurney and took her to the hospital where it was made official. I made all the proper calls and notifications. Then I headed back out on patrol.

She was only 16, and had her whole life ahead of her. But because of some petty prejudices she was now and forever dead. Life wasted.

Every beat cop has some place he likes to go to write reports, maybe have a cup of coffee while he does his paperwork. I went to mine where I sat down and started to write up the report.

I couldn’t seem to get anything down on paper. I couldn’t concentrate on the report.
I couldn’t explain the tears that seemed to come on their own.
After 7 years of street patrol, it happened.  I couldn’t think, I couldn’t write. I had reached a point where my soul was full.
Instead I had the first drink I ever took on duty.
The first.

Friday Motes, International

Watch the shiny object: Gas is at an unprecedented high, shelves are bare of necessities like baby formula, over 2 million people have died from covid, inflation is the highest it’s been in 40 years, our cities are seeing unbelievable levels of violence and division, hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens have crossed the southern border since the new “administration” took office and what do our “leaders” and representatives do? They hold a hearing to reportedly to dig into the “mystery” of “unexplained aerial phenomena.”.  Yes, that’s right, U F O’s. Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security Ronald Moultrie and Deputy Director of Naval Intelligence Scott Bray testified at the hearing. No word if V-P Harris E.T. will be speaking.

Speaking of gas; no change this week.

There is a reason: They have used incredible methods to track down the insurrectionists from Jan6. Facial recognition, digital footprints, children snitching out their parents, wives selling out their husbands, and lots of anonymous informants, but they still haven’t caught the one person that actually did something that could have actually killed many people. I speak of the “DC Pipe Bomber”. In what is perhaps the most enduring mystery from last year’s Capitol riot, the person who planted pipe bombs outside the headquarters of the Republican National Committee and the Democratic National Committee hours before the violence began remains unidentified and unaccounted for. While Attorney General Merrick Garland has insisted the Department of Justice’s probe into the events of Jan6, 2021, is ongoing, authorities appear no closer to naming the suspect — or even clarifying whether the person is a man or a woman. Seems they can identify and catch who they “want” to catch, maybe they just don’t want to catch the “Bomber”. Now why is that? Just ask John Sullivan or Tom Gionet.

There is only the one source: There Are how many “news” and information outlets? 5-25-300-more? If you listen to Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) there is only Fox News. Because after all, everyone who does something was indoctrinated by Fox, turned into rabid (insert your favorite -phobe here) by Fox News, and the only source of “misinformation” is Fox news. That’s why she says we need “we need commonsense, thoughtful regulation”. (Censorship) Is that like “commonsense” gun laws where we regulate the hell out of them and then just ban all of them? Probably be the same way with speech. Take it away, because you don’t “need” it.

Headline: “1st monkeypox case in US this year reported in Massachusetts”. Couple of things grab me here. First is the “this year”, you mean there have been other cases in past years? When? Where? And what the heck is “monkeypox”? This can’t be good.

Their “thought’ process: Big headlines from several “noteworthy” news sources. “Clarence Thomas Reveals When He Plans to Leave the Supreme Court”. It would make one tend to believe Justice Thomas was bowing to pressure and leaving the court. Actually, no. What he did say was; “One of the things I say in response to the media, when they talk about, especially early on … about the way I do my job, I said, ‘I will absolutely leave the Court when I do my job as poorly as you do yours.,” Thomas said during an interview at a conference in Dallas. So this was not a statement of Justice Thomas’s intent, it was a slam against msm. But the msm, and it’s blind hatred of the conservative Justice, can’t even see it.

The dixk tree: The Cambodian government has asked people to stop picking a rare carnivorous plant that looks like a penis. The plants, called N. holdenii and N. bokoensis are known colloquially as “pitchers” due to their shape. The plants survive by supplementing their nutrient intake with live insects. The Ministry’s post came in response to a video of the women picking the flowers that was shared online. This isn’t it. This one grows in my yard.

Thursday Motes, Friday Is Tomorrow

Age old morality question: If you found a wallet on the street, what would you do? There’s identification in the wallet so you know who it belongs to. What do you do?  Okay, the state deposits  $360,000 in your account what do you do? Well, if you’re a 24 y-o man in Japan that had a 4.63 million yen deposited, you cash it out and disappear. The funds were Covid relief funds for Abu, Yamaguchi prefecture. According to a report the man’s name was at the top of the town’s list of account information sent to the bank, which was confused by a formatting issue that led it to believe the money should be transferred to his account first and later distributed to the rest of the townspeople. Once he received the money, the man began to transfer the total sum out of his account in small daily increments to avoid detection. By the time the town authorities caught up with him on April 21, he told them the money was all gone, Asahi Shimbun reported. On May 12, the town filed a lawsuit against the man demanding repayment of the relief funds and any legal fees, SoraNews24 reported.  But he had vanished from his home by then, the outlet reported on Sunday. Town residents described the man as “a good boy, young and handsome,”. And now he’s rich, young, and handsome.

Time for a change: Rashida Harbi Tlaib is an American politician and lawyer serving as the U.S. representative for Michigan’s 13th congressional district since 2019. The district includes the western half of Detroit, along with several of its western suburbs and much of the Downriver area. (rep·re·sent /ˌreprəˈzent/ :be entitled or appointed to act or speak for (someone), especially in an official capacity.) Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib has said she introduced a resolution to recognize the Palestinian Nakba, a term used to describe the forced displacement of hundreds of thousands of Palestinians in the lead-up to the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948.  Can anyone tell me how this “resolution” benefits or “represents” the people of Detroit? Anyone?

This IS bad: A third of fish and chip shops could be at risk of closure due to food shortages caused by the Russian invasion of Ukraine, industry leaders have warned. The National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) has called on the Government to “act now” to prevent “long-term damage” to the popular takeaways. NFFF president Andrew Crook told Sky News many of his members think those in power “do not care” about the potential harm his sector faces. A Government spokesperson said it will “continue to speak with the industry body, the National Federation of Fish Friers, and other sector representatives about current pressures they face”. In other words, “We’re looking in to it.”

Wrong wrong wrong: Jussie Smollett is a free man. Alec Baldwin is a free man. Hunter Biden is a free man. Michael Byrd is a free man. There are Jan6 prisoners in the DC jail charged with trespassing and have been denied bail. Something is freakin’ wrong here.

Saw this picture of Johnny and June. It is just so powerful. So simple, a man and a woman.

They now sit together at the Table of heros.

Wednesday Motes, No Video

A good reason to vote for Trump: White House chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Sunday that he would not serve in that capacity should Donald Trump regain the White House in 2024. When interviewed by Trump-hater Jim Acosta, he simply laughed and said, “well, no” when asked if he would work for the Don again.  One of the few constants in the pandemic has been the ubiquitous television appearances of Fauxci. Another constant was Fauxi flip-flopping and lying. He started lying almost immediately during the early days, claiming to know with certainty that Wuhan was a natural virus when in fact there was evidence that it was engineered. So, getting rid of this p o s is just another good reason to vote for Trump.

Wondering: Think there will ever be a “Porn Stars” Barbie and Ken set? You know, a “Ron Jeremy” Ken. Just wondering. (Can’t get the image out now. Can you?

Make up terms and use them: What the hell is an “enhanced magazine”? The msm is now describing the New York shooter was using “enhanced magazines” in his abhorrent act of murder. And they’ll sell it, and yell it, and make you think it somehow makes the weapon “more dangerous”. Then they’ll outlaw them, and nobody will ever define what it is. But you can’t have one anyway so “it” doesn’t matter.

A sad Good-Bye: Couple of weeks ago, Julie and I did enjoy watching the 2022 movie, “Saved By Ruby”, the story of an unlikely rescue dog becoming a police K-9 in Rhode Island. The real-life Ruby earned national recognition, even being named “Search and Rescue Dog of the Year, when in 2017 when she was instrumental in the rescue of young boy who happened to be the son of shelter worker Patricia Inman. It was Inman that assisted Daniel O’Neil in adopting Ruby out of the shelter, after she had been returned five times for being too “rambunctious. It was with sadness that I read Ruby has crossed over the Rainbow bridge after contracting a sudden, acute, and untreatable illness. Her heart and joyous spirit will be missed by all.

I’d say the later: Was it just coincidence Bette Midler played the hard partying Grandma in the “Adams Family 2”? Or just type casting?

Piers Morgan is an idiot: In his latest piece of “journalism”, Morgan attempted to equate the 2nd Amendment right to keep and bear arms with thew English game Cricket. Then he wonders why police didn’t do anything about the New York shooter before he went on his murderous rampage. First of all, the right of firearms was given up by the English, so they would be safer. How’s that working out for you? On the other idea; Hey Piers, you seem to forget little things like innocent until proven guilty, preponderance of evidence, and punish the guilty. Okay the cops knew the guy was stone azzed crazy troubled but unfortunately that is NOT against the law. (Or we’d be able to have you locked up.) So once again, you and your big brit mouth have no business telling us what Americans “should do”. Personally, I think the NY Post hired you, so the rest of the US msm would look good.

And an early prognostication: The New York shooter will never be executed, he will be deemed mentally unfit, as judged by all his writing and posting, and may even be sent to a “hospital”.

Tuesday Motes To Tune You Up

On a label of “harder” cider: “CRAFTED TO REMOVE GLUTEN. PRODUCT FERMENTED FROM GRAINS THAT CONTAIN GLUTEN AND CRAFTED TO REMOVE GLUTEN. THE GLUTEN CONTENT CANNOT BE VERIFIED AND THIS PRODUCT MAY CONTAIN GLUTEN. This might have been written by the Harris writing team. It’s freakin’ alcohol, it’s supposed to be bad for you. Get over it.

It really ain’t the same: Woke is really screwing up our civilization. Commenting on a man’s hair, or lack thereof, is now on parr with mentioning the size of a woman boobs. A panel of balding judges have ruled insulting a man for being bald in the workplace amounts to sex harassment in the UK. The case got started when a supervisor called a worker a “fat bald c—” and he was later fired from the West Yorkshire-based British Bung, which makes wooden cask plugs, according to the outlet. (Really? A “bung” maker.) “In our judgment, there is a connection between the word ‘bald’ on the one hand and the protected characteristic of sex on the other,” the tribunal said. “We find it to be inherently related to sex.”  The finding also declared that criticizing worker for his hairless head was “degrading” and “humiliating.” Along with upholding of the sex harassment claim, the tribunal ruled the company had dismissed him unfairly after 24 years on the job. (24 years? Making bungs? O M G) Financial compensation will be determined at a later date.

On whites can be racists: Payton Gendron will become the new face of white supremacy and racial hate. And deserves it. How many people remember Frank James of New York? Or Darrell Brooks of Waukesha? They don’t fit the narrative, but are just as evil. Gendron posted his “manifesto” on line, and defined himself politically as a “left authoritarian”, but he is being described as “a right-wing supremacist”. One fits the narrative and that is the one that will be shouted from the roof tops. (The hell with the truth. You can’t handle the truth.)

They’re after you, he’s just in the way: Headline: “Prosecutors pursue an inquiry into Trumps handling of classified material”. (But not Shilary’s)

Meanwhile, Muslims are being persecuted, due to “islamophobia”:   Last Friday, a Muslim mob beat and burned to death a female Christian student in Nigeria. She was apparently accused of “blasphemy.” A brief video clip shows a massive fire against a wall, where the hapless woman was likely driven and cornered, and Muslims jumping around it and crying “Allahu Akbar.” This is the same “religion of peace” that two days earlier “hacked” 29 other Christians to death. This incident occurred on the grounds of the Shehu Shagari College of Education. The college announced it is now closed. The Religion of Peace.

Happy Birthday Danny Trejo. A man who turned his life around and from what I gather gives a great deal back. He does a lot with disadvantaged youths, trying to keep them from making his mistakes. Good job Danny.

Show off: A Florida Woman suspected of drunk driving performed “multiple ballet and Irish folk dance moves” while undergoing field sobriety tests after rear-ending a vehicle late last Wednesday evening. The driver smelled of alcohol, had “slurred speech,” and “was unsteady on her feet,” police charge. When asked to perform one-leg stand and walk-and-turn tests, the driver instead broke out her cross-disciplinary dance moves, according to an arrest affidavit. The driver refused to take a breath test, was charged with a pair of misdemeanors and booked into the county jail (from which she was released on $650 bond). A date has not been set for the roadside ballerina to appear for arraignment and enter a plié.

Weekend: playlist included Bobby Bare, Lori Moran, Dan Seals, Crystal Gayle, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Jay and the Americans. Kinda an old timey mood, I guess. Shot some arrows, rode the bike, and mowed the weeds. All in total, a really good weekend.
