Big Friday Motes

Really: Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander, and co-creator Larry David from the iconic sitcom Seinfeld, will reunite for a virtual fundraiser this Friday aimed at raising money for the Democratic Party in Texas. Am I the only one that finds this incredibly ironic? After all, Seinfeld was the quintessential New York City sitcom, and let’s face facts, New York ain’t exactly the same as Texas. The only New Yorker ever embraced by Texas was Kinky Friedman, and, well, he is different.

If I needed any reason to not vote for Biden: Well, Jane Fonda has come to tell everyone that only he will save America. Fonda, notorious for her pro-North Vietnamese activism during the Vietnam War, called coronavirus, “God’s gift to the left.” What’s next, something about “sickle cell anemia”? She also said,” “If you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would some day become communist. . . . I, a socialist, think that we should strive toward a socialist society, all the way to communism.” Yeah, we should all listen to Hanoi Jane.

My heart is broken: Mel Brooks says he prefers Biden over Trump for some very valid reasons: Biden “likes fact” and “likes science.” The 94-year-old posted an endorsement video for Joe Biden. What Joe doesn’t like is “truth” and “facts” that don’t fit his narrative.

Almost forgot: Happy Belated Birthday Christopher Lloyd, 82. Reverend Jim (Ignatowski) of Taxi is one of my all time favorites.

Word to the wise: Never sing in the shower. Singing leads to dancing, dancing leads to slipping, and slipping leads to EMT’s seeing you naked. Remember, don’t sing. Don’t ask.

Well, this is a Honolulu weekend. Enjoy the Story and Rant. See ya’all Monday.

Thursday, or Little Friday, Motes

It was just a matter of time: The New Yorker writer and CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin  was allegedly caught masturbating in a call with some of the magazine’s biggest names, and has been suspended from the publication. “I believed I was not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. “ Okay, nobody can see you, is it so important you need to get off right now?

Dude, we wish you the best: It has been announced that Jeff Bridges hhas been diagnosed with lymphoma. “Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good.” Cancer doesn’t care what religion you are, what politics you follow, or how you’ve lived your life, it strikes without compassion or mercy.   This one hits hard, and I think I can speak for fans everywhere when I say that we’re all pulling for Jeff Bridges.

A little common sense: I’m getting tired of hearing how one “supporter” did this or that to another “supporter” and it’s the fault of the “candidate” because he “encourages” this type of action. Come on people, nobody “encourages” someone to spit on a car, burn down a store, or hang a noose in front of your dorm. These are personal choices made by an individual all on his own. But since it doesn’t promote “the cause”, you can’t blame the individual, so you want blame the guy who really had no control over what was done. Use a little common sense, when you run into a butthead, and he acts like a butthead, it’s because he’s a butthead. No matter who he wants to vote for.

Sounds “iffy” to me: Alexandra Astavina, 39, was found dead at her flat in Moscow after she was stung by a wasp on her lip while taking a sip from a carton of juice. Ms Astavina had been speaking to a friend on the phone at the time and told him she had been stung. Emergency services forced entry into Ms Astavina’s house and found her dead on the sofa. They also found a wasp “convulsing on the table” at her flat. Ms Astavina joined the Russian Green Party in 2007 and had been an ecology campaigner since she was a child. Now, I’m not given to conspiracies, but I’ve never found a wasp hiding in a juice carton. Common knowledge, a little advanced planning, and soft execution, and this could be the perfect murder.

Letter to the “EDIT”or

Couple of days ago I sent this to the local “News Paper”.

“All of the local news sources, print, television, report Hawaii appears “overwhelmingly” for Biden. I cannot understand why. The local Democrat .gov has closed the state for the last 8 months, the “rail” is bankrupting the state, not just Honolulu, and the Demo party is offering nothing but bumper-sticker messages. Which is better than the silence of the GOP, but not doing any good. Maybe the voters are really as dumb as Mazie seems to think they are.

This is what they printed. :

Hawaii Democrats have dismal track record

All of the local news sources report that Hawaii appears “overwhelmingly” for Joe Biden. I cannot understand why.

Democratic Gov. David Ige closed the state for the last eight months; the rail transit project is bankrupting the state (not just Honolulu); and the Democratic Party offers nothing but bumper-sticker messages, which is better than the silence of the GOP, but also not doing any good.

Maybe the voters really are dumb.”

The differences, in italics in the first letter, are very small,  but change the entire tenor of my statement. “They” are not on our side.

Witty Wednesday Motes

I don’t understand these people: Joe Scarborough, whoever the hell that is, says history will look back on the Trump rallies with the same eye as we look at the “Salem Witch trials”. Huh? For crying pout loud, just how out of touch are you?

Under paid: Fifteen Portland Police Bureau (PPB) employees made more than $200,000 in the department’s 2020 fiscal year after a record-breaking month for overtime pay in June amid riots. Three top-earning officers for the 2020 fiscal year amassed overtime that exceeded their base salaries. Approximately 730 out of 1,300 PPB employees made over $100,000. I don’t think I ever made more than $40K, with overtime and special duty, in any one year as a cop. Wow.

Ever noticed, there are no Harley’s parked outside therapist’s office’s.

All over: I guess all the fires in Calipornia are out since there doesn’t seem to be any reports. I saw several reports the fires were all caused by “Climate Change”. I believe Texas has as much woodland as Cali, and they didn’t have the fires. Same climate. Same change. Different result. Huh?

Correct response: After coming out as voting for President Trump, Kirtstie Alley has been subjected to “the slings and arrows” of the Hollywierd elite. The Elite have attacked everything from her weight, her religion (Scientology) and her performing (“…Long was funnier than you.) Her response,” I honestly don’t take it too personally”. And that is the correct answer.

It’s Tuesday, Whopee Motes

Promises promises promises: Bruce Springsteen, singer of “Born In The U.S.A.”, says he will leave if Trump is re-elected. The 71-year old rocker recently spoke with the Australian press via a virtual chat, and he said that should the election favor Trump, he might not stick around the US. When first asked whether he’d ever consider a move to Australia, Springsteen said, “I would consider that.” He’ll probably be like all the others that promised but didn’t leave in 2016.

Can’t explain it: All of the local news sources, print, television, report Hawaii appears “overwhelmingly” for Biden. I cannot understand why. The local Democrat .gov has closed the state for the last 8 months, the “rail” is bankrupting the state, not just Honolulu, and the Demo party is offering nothing but bumper-sticker messages. Which is better than the silence of the GOP, but not doing any good. Maybe the voters are really as dumb as Mazie seems to think they are.

Low hanging fruit: I’m not going for the low hanging fruit, I’m not going to talk about “The View”, Joy Behar and her comments. Why not? Because with Behar, it’s just too easy. She epitomizes the Hollywierd Hypocrite. I’m just tired of it.

Some things don’t change: Landed in Hilo Friday night, and it looked like the Tan Sun Nhut Air Base terminal in 1966. Soldiers pointing the way, asking you if you had this or that, a medical tent right there, Now, show your Id, check in code, letter and “negative” test results, step on the yellow footprints. Didn’t have any civil rights there either.

New Monday Motes

Please help: This add pops up on Craig’s List about 3 times a month and has been for at least 7-8 months. “Lost –Chair made of Human-Bones (Identifiable by engraving on leg) (Lost in the Kalihi Valley area).Lost, actually stolen –Chair made of Human-Bones. Identifiable by engraving on leg. Reward to be paid for safe retrieval. In your email, include description of engraving in order to authenticate.” Would somebody please help this guy find his chair. And why does it have “engraving on leg”? Are there so many that they can be confused?

Mom being a mom: Everybody seems to be talking about the jogger that was “menaced” by a cougar while out running. Okay, this is a cougar “cat”, not the “other” kind.  Kyle Burgess, 26, survived a terrifying encounter with a mountain lion in Utah after the animal chased and charged at him on Saturday. He recorded the 6 minute incident in Slate Canyon with the cougar, who was with her cubs. Appears he interrupted Mom and cubs. She was just doing what moms are supposed to do, protect. I would like to point out he wasn’t so afraid that he stopped recording.

The answer is: Hunter Biden may have fired the game sinking torpedo for his father’s campaign. The question I keep hearing is Why would someone, with all that incriminating stuff, leave a computer at a repair shop and never pick it up? Good question. My answer, why do you think they call it “dope”?

Rocket Man? : No, not the dictator of N. Korea. This “Rocket Man” has been seen flying near LA International Airport at altitudes between 3 and 6 thousand feet. The flyer has been seen by multiple commercial aircraft and reported to the Airport tower.  Nobody Has come forward and claimed ownership, nor will they when the fbi is “looking into it”.

Sunday Rant

From John Farnam and DTI- Words to the voter.

16 Oct 20 

“How can a free citizen resist aggression without equal force?How can a truly ‘free state’ exist when citizens are enslaved to the forceful will of individual or organized criminals?” 

Tiffany Madison Sleepy Joe said yesterday in an “only-friendly-question-allowed” interview during a “Town Hall Meeting,” hosted by ABC (which is, of course, little more than a subdivision of the DNC): “You have to teach people how to de-escalate circumstances. So, instead of anybody coming at you, and thefirst thing you do is shoot to kill, you shoot them in the leg.” 

Naive Sleepy Joe, continuously safe and secure behind a literal army of heavily-armed, tax-payer funded, bodyguards, has obviously never been an LEO, nor has he ever at any time during his sheltered life, faced a violent criminal, with no bodyguards in between! Dredging-up this long-discredited “shoot-them-in-the-leg” argument, which is embraced by no police department and is not even embraced by his own cadre of bodyguards, is Joe’s way of soliciting “the criminal vote.” 

Having obviously no regard for the safety of good and honest citizens, who own guns and who don’t vote for him, Joe is apparently so worried that some of his precious criminals might get hurt while in the process of committing crimes of violence! If Democrats cared half as much about the welfare of good and productive, tax-paying citizens as they do about sleazy, violent criminals, they might garner some of our support. But, they have no sympathy for, and feel no kinship with, good and decent people, precisely because they themselves are neither good, nor decent! They, including Sleepy Joe, are sleazy criminals. Always have been! And that is why they feel such an umbilical-cord connection with fellow amoral criminals who are currently terrorizing entire section of our nation (with scant interference from politics-oriented local leftist mayors and police chiefs) Leftist politics does not attract good people. Never has! In fact, good people are repelled by it. 

So leftists, like Sleepy Joe, have no alternative but to unapologetically appeal to criminals for support, as wesee!

Saturday Story

Three Warrants, Two Girls, One Scratch

Some bikers are tough, some can drink for days, some just attract women or trouble, but there’s only one Scratch.

We were on an around the island Sunday ride, just mostly chilling. There were patch wearers from all three charters so it was a pretty large group. We had just come down the Windward coast and just rolled into Kahuku when we see Scratch’s shovelhead on the side of the road.

 Now Scratch was supposed to meet up with us earlier, but he was always late.

So there he was, waiting for us on the side of the road. But, as we approached from one direction, a police officer approached from the other. We would have stopped but his blue light came on and we kept moving. The cop pulled right behind Scratch.

Now, if the truth be known, Scratch has never been one to worry about little things like a driver’s license, vehicle insurance, yearly registration fees, or safety checks. Hell, no one would give him a safety check anyway.

The Kahuku Police sub-station wasn’t far so by the time we reached our next beer stop, the cops had allowed Scratch to call and tell us what his bail was going to cost.

We all anted up and covered his bail, gave the money to a prospect, and sent him back to collect Scratch. It wasn’t the first time so we all knew we’d get paid back. The prospect and Scratch would have to figure out how to get the motorcycle back.

So we all ordered drinks, a couple started a game of horseshoes out back, and we waited.

By the time the horseshoe game was finished, the prospect called to say they were on their way to join us. We figures 15 to 20 minutes max. So we ordered another round.

We could hear the 2 bikes when they pulled into the parking lot. I looked out into the parking lot and damn, Scratch had 2 women on his bike. One behind him and the other laying down on the gas tank in front of him. The prospect, who had an actual seat for a rider, was by himself.

After being bailed out, between the sub-station and the next bar, Scratch had managed to pick up 2 Aussie surf bunnies and they only wanted to ride with Scratch.

They actually tried to refuse to ride with anyone else but we managed to convince them that their both riding with Scratch would draw some really unneeded attention. He did just bail him out.

So for the rest of the ride each one would take turns riding with someone else, but at the end of the day, they both left with Scratch.

Like I said, there’s only one Scratch.

Friday Motes, To Start The Weekend

In these times, this is where your taxes are going: The County of Maui is suing 20 fossil fuel companies over climate change impacts. The complaint, which was filed Monday, alleges the companies hid the dangers posed by their products for decades in order to maximize profits. Maui county says as a result of climate change ocean levels are rising the wildfire season is now year-round. So, if we sue and get a bunch of money from the oil companies it will all be okay? Did I get that right? To me, this is just a huge waste of taxpayer’s money. It will take 15 years to get to any court that counts, and by then, according to Greta and Al we’ll all be under water, or was that last year?

Just freaking embarrassing: In the Tuesday hearing’s, Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, asked a question pertaining to an issue that came up quite a bit during Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing but had yet to come up during Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s hearing: whether the Supreme Court nominee had ever sexually assaulted someone. Hirono said it is her duty “to ensure the fitness of nominees”. Somebody should check Mazie to ensure her fitness.  Just freaking embarrassing.

You think: From “thefederalist”; “A recent thwarted plan to take Michigan Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer hostage could have been an FBI entrapment, a defense attorney suggested Tuesday for one of six men charged with conspiracy to kidnap.” Well, I’ve seen where it has been said that 1 in every 4 persons involved was either an informant (snitch) or an under-cover leo. I’d say the fbi, as always, was grabbing the low hanging fruit.

Training for today: I remember when someone asked Col. Jeff Cooper what kind of gun he’d carry if he knew he were headed to a gunfight. His response was, if he knew he was headed to a gunfight, he’d stay home.

Spending the weekend in Hilo. Gonna mow the lawn, clean the garage, and probably get hit by some Rolling Rocks. See ya Monday.
