Here’s the Haps:
I have not been doing a lot of politics lately, it’s just a weariness of mind to me. The Left is still mindlessly marching in lockstep and the media regurgitates their talking points. The Left is strong because they won’t break ranks and will not hesitate to even eat their own if they get out of step, like RFK Jr. and Jay Nixon. The Right is no better with the majority of them wetting their finger and sticking it in the air to see what direction the polls will send them rather than standing on principles. And they eat their own as well. But this is what happens when a nation forgets God and has no moral absolutes. John Adams said, “Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.”(Psa 9:17) Or as the Book of Herb says, “Why is it getting so hot and what is this handbasket we’re riding in?”
Someone left a small baggie of cocaine in a cubby at the White House and the Secret Service can’t figure out who it belonged to? They have closed the case because they lack physical evidence, no DNA or fingerprints, the video available does not show any person acting more suspiciously than anyone else, and to interview 500 people is just not worth it‽‽‽ One of the news articles I read said there was a “blind spot” in the video cameras where they just can’t see that portion.
When I worked in the Money Center and Customer Service at the Big Blue Box, 8 years ago, the video system could easily read the serial number on the money and you could see the texture of the paper; it could also view a handwritten check close enough to tell its authenticity. They could track, uninterrupted, the actions of a guy who came in, took an empty cart back to the electronics department. They watched him put a printer in the basket and wheel it up to the customer service desk and attempt to return it. And the White House can’t figure out who left a baggie of Cocaine in a cubby in a high-trafficked area. Really‽‽‽ (See, I told you the Interrobang is an immensely useful mark and should be canonized as a real punctuation mark.) And Hunter had just visited two days before. This ought to be disconcerting to any law-abiding citizen, let alone to security personnel everywhere. On the serious side, what if this had been a bomb?
On the not-so-serious side, the memes and cartoons have been great and since I haven’t done a meme dump in a while, here’s a bunch:
