Thank Goodness It’s Moteday

Last blog I wrote about the Dutch girl that had been Euthanized. It appears the numerous sources I checked were all wrong. The young girl was not euthanized. As it turns out, Pothoven was allowed by her family to starve herself to death, which is hardly a good thing. But she was not, as the English-language media reported, put to death under Dutch law. Yeah, and allowing your child to starve herself to death, while you watch, is so much better. I apologize for incorrectly stating this story. I do stand with my opinions as stated. Where will it end?

A man suffering from acute Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) went on an anti-Trump rampage at the sight of Trump supporters at a rally in Los Angeles on Sunday. The unidentified man, who was later arrested, was so enraged at the sight of the MAGA hat-clad rallygoers that he parked his car in the middle of the street and charged them. The man’s shocked family watched from the car as he assaulted and spat on the Trump supporters. Just for the record, here is a record of recent attacks;

Hollywierd Hypocrite: Liam Neeson has another revenge movie out I won’t bother to watch.

There have been 50 women strangled to death in Chicago since 2001. There have been NO arrests. Women involved have had histories of sex work and drug abuse. It is highly unlikely “these women were murdered by 50 separate men.” There are no comments on any evidence etc recovered at the scenes, but numbers of family members are requesting DNA tests for the cases. Ya Think?

Aww, Poor Widdle Snowfakes: A number of NBA teams have been considering ditching the term “owner” and high-level conversations have taken place over the past year. These conversations have focused on the idea that the term “owner” feels racially insensitive in a league that is predominantly made up of black players. How about calling them “BOSS“. No that’s insensitive too. How about, the guy that signs the checks?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Friend, Brothers, and Other People

Over the years I’ve made, and lost friends. Some I miss, some I don’t. But there were some that were always good for a laugh.

Friends like Jay Roberts.

Once upon a time Jay developed a substance abuse problem. Usually associated with chasing the wrong woman.

This time was no different. She led him down the sweet rose path, at his expense, of course, and then decided “this isn’t working” and walked away. He went into the predicted tail spin. Then he disappeared.

So I was rather shocked on that Tuesday night when I received a collect phone call (this was long before cell phones) from Anchorage Alaska and “Mr. Roberts”.

I accepted and in a few short words found out that:

March in Alaska is cold, if all you’re wearing is shorts, a tank top, rubber flip flops and a multi-day hangover. Jay had drunk his way up the west coast, airport by airport and was broke. Could I please front him enough money to get back to Hawaii?

Jay’s luck was good in 2 ways:

The first was I answered the phone.

The second, I had enough money to pay for his ticket and 2-3 days later he was home. Still hung over, but determined he’d learned his lesson.

He didn’t.

 

Then there was Garagedoor John. He sold and installed roll-up garage or warehouse doors. He was an “active” guy who just didn’t think far ahead.

One night he was at Anna’s waiting for a girlfriend to join him. The problems started when the other girlfriend showed up and sat down next to him in the booth. She was not the girl he  up in “poor planning” column. Don’t take both your girlfriends to the same bar.

As he was sitting there trying to convince her to go on home and he’d call her later, the girl he was waiting for walks in the door. She also sits down next to him in the booth, but on the other side. He is now hemmed in by two girlfriends. And their conversation leaves no doubt this was a planned meeting.

The waitress appeared to be paying close attention to the group so he wouldn’t have a reason to get up, even to order another drink. We could all see he was slowly roasting but it wasn’t over yet.

His wife walked through the doors. She walked straight to the table, pulled up a chair so all three women were facing each other and John had no escape route. They started talking and again, it was obvious they had spoken, together, at least once before.

The look on John’s face made you almost feel sorry for him, but only almost. He had been bringing his wife and girlfriends, at different times, to the same bar. This no longer falls to poor planning, this rates full on stupid.

Finally he excused himself to the bathroom, slipped out the back door and made his escape. It seemed the women didn’t care because the three of them spent the rest of the evening talking, laughing, and drinking. After minutes had passed and it was obvious he wasn’t coming back, the wife stood and announced drinks were on “John”.

Last time I saw John, he was back at Anna’s, with his fourth wife. Some people never learn.

 

Declining Motes

News You Wanted To Know: A South Carolina woman recently offered her advice on living a long life: “Have a beer.”Mildred Bowers, 103 of Mount Pleasant, SC, celebrated the big occasion a little early at a local restaurant last Friday, where friends ordered her a pint of her favorite beverage. Known as ‘Millie’ to her friends and family, the centenarian wasn’t shy about her secret to longevity.”Have a beer,” she said in an interview.

Kenya asks the World Bank for a 740 million dollar loan amid growing Chinese debts. Now, who do we know from Kenya? And what makes anyone think if they can’t pay their Chinese debt, they will pay the World Bank?

Guy rushes stage where Kamala Harris is speaking. He gains the stage, grabs her microphone, takes it away from her and starts delivering his own lecture. This is a huge security failure. If any team I was on lead or was just part on, had this level of failure, the only word used would be unemployed. Forever. You only loose 1 client. To me this would be a “loss”. Recent podcast from “artofmanliness.com” was “How To Be Your Own Bodyguard”. Worth the listen.

Recently had the fun of re-watching the thrid remake of “Stagecoach”. The first movie starred John Wayne, Ward Bond, and was black and white. The second had Alex Cord, Bing Crosby, and Ann Margret. I watched the re-make with Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, Wylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson, June Carter Cash, and David Allan Coe. A good fun time guaranteed.

This Bothers me, A LOT:

A depressed seventeen year old Netherlands girl was legally euthanized last Sunday with the help of an end of life clinic.The girl, Noa Pothoven, had battled with depression after being molested as a young child.The day before the Dutch teenager from Arnhem was euthanized she posted to Instagram saying that she “is still breathing, but no longer alive.”

“I get straight to the point: within a maximum of 10 days I will die. After years of fighting and fighting it is finished. I have now stopped eating and drinking for a while, and after many conversations and reviews it has been decided that I will be released because my suffering is unbearable. It’s finished. I have not really been alive for so long, I survive, and not even that,” Pothoven wrote.

Prior to her death, Pothoven had authored a memoir titled Winning or Learning, in which she discussed battling anorexia, depression and post-traumatic stress disorder over the rape and molestation she endured as a child.

In the Netherlands, children as young as twelve can opt for euthanasia if a doctor determines that their pain is “unbearable.”

This really bothers me. Who decides their pain is at the unbearable level? Aren’t teenagers given to make everything unbearable? What is the medical definition of unbearable? How soon do we go from “allowing” euthanasia to “Well the child was retarded anyway”? Didn’t some Germans decide to do that a while back? Something is wrong here. Very wrong.

 

Aloha Chief

Just received this.

I spent many good hours with the “Chief”. Spent more than a few miles with him. He was one of the founding members of the VNV M/C here in Hawaii. In the 80’s and 90″s he was responsible for bringing more than one “bush” vet out of the hills and back home. Men of his courage and strength are few and far between and he will be missed.

Vaya Con Dios amigo.  Go with God.

Motes, Plain and Simple

 

Why should we worry about the border? This year there have been 1,954 deaths in Africa due to Ebola.  That is only the “reported” cases. The unreported could be as much as 10 times as many. From the American/Mexican boarder: “Agents have encountered 182 large groups (100+ individuals) across the SW border this fiscal year. This large group apprehended in Del Rio Sector consisting entirely of African nationals,” Lets add; “Bubonic Plauge “likely” already present in Los Angeles” and Two LAPD officers are treated for Typhus“. Are we seeing the picture?

Principal West Virginia accused of plagiarizing speech by .  With all the intelligent people of the world, this is who you plagiarize?

Hell of a weekend: Chicago had 52 people shot with 10 dead. Detroit had “at least 8 people shot. Then we get former Chicago community organizer B.H.Obama speaking, for a large paycheck, in Brazil;

  1. Anybody Can Buy a Firearm. False.
  2. Any Firearm Can Be Purchased. False.
  3. A Firearm Can Be Purchased at Any Time.False.
  4. Firearms Can Be Purchased with Few Regulations.False. If you’ve been paying attention so far, the United States has many regulations on the purchase and possession of firearms.
  5. Firearms Can Be Purchased Over the Internet. False (well, at least in the way the comment was likely meant).
  6. Anyone Can Purchase a Machine Gun. False. First, see lie No. 2 above. “Anyone” may not purchase a firearm, let alone a machine gun. I can’t even repeat these with a straight face.

“Gun laws in the United States don’t make much sense.”On this, he and I agree. I doubt, however, that we share the same reasoning. But then, I believe  lying, pot smoking ex-organizers don’t make much sense either.

Headline: “Trans woman found dead in Dallas for the second time in two weeks.” And I’ll bet she’s  getting tired of it.

Anybody remember the man who, after changing his name to Aranda, went to the Mall of America, grabbed a 5 year old child, threw the child off the third floor, walked away to be captured later, and then pleaded guilty at court? Well, he has been sentenced to 19 years in prison, 12 years to possible parole, and all this within 60 days. And little MSM coverage. Of course, now he’ll claim incompetent legal counsel ’cause let’s face it, it should have taken 2 or 3 years, even with a guilty plea.

Saira Rao, who ran for Congress in Colorado’s first district last year, and lost, blamed white people for making her life “miserable,” and said that she can’t stand the sight of the American flag. Rao recently founded a club called “Race To Dinner,” where she invites white women throughout the country to join private dinners in order to “bear witness” to the pain of “Black and Brown” women. That’s a little much, even for a free dinner.

Motes To Consider

 

This is getting ridiculous? Bob Iger, the CEO of Disney, announced  that his company may stop filming in Georgia because the newly passed “heartbeat bill” will make it too “difficult“(his words) for his crews to work there.  Netflix has threatened to stop filming .”… it will be very difficult to [continue to film there] and I doubt we will. I think many people who work for us will not want to work there and we’ll have to heed their wishes in that regard.” Why doesn’t he ask them? Shouldn’t be too hard, you write their checks. “I don’t see how it becomes practical for us to shoot there,” he reiterated. What’s filming in Georgia:? The Walking Dead, Marvel Super hero movies,The Hunger Games, and The Vampire Diaries. Now someone explain to me how those movies require liberal abortion laws.

I don’t see how it effects them. It’s a states rights thing first and foremost. How does an abortion ruling effect the filming of a movie, any movie. Movies can’t be made without an abortion? Those complaining are not allowed to vote in Georgia and they sure as hell shouldn’t be calling the shots when it comes to laws passed by the duly elected legislature of the state.

On the same thread: Hollywierd Hypocrite #1 ;For Alyssa Milano, it does appear to be the money. She announced that she will continue filming “Insatiable” in Georgia because she’s “contractually obligated” to the Netflix show, but she definitely thinks YOU should boycott Georgia. And trust me, after reading the descriptions and reviews, Insatiable sounds like an incredibly deep and moving piece of theatrics of which the bard would be proud. (Sarcasm intended)

The millennial’s seem to have a say about everything. Yet, studies show they aren’t having much sex anymore. Up to a third of young Americans report not having had sex in about a year. Many don’t report anger or even being ashamed about this. It’s just how we live now, loneliness as far as the eye can see. A year? At that age I started worrying if I went a week.

 U.K. police have arrested 30 Hells Angels bikers during a three-day event marking the motorcycle club’s 50th anniversary in Britain. Assistant Chief Constable Nev Kemp says authorities have been “very clear with those attending the Hells Angels event, many from overseas, that we will not tolerate criminal and anti-social behavior. ”             Let’s see, how many London stabbings – latest knife crime statistics and attacks 2018 was London’s bloodiest year in almost a decade as the number of homicides reached 135. How many were the Hells Angels involved in, none. But they are “anti-social”. But let’s not profile. Ah (bullshit) choo.
