Once again there is so much to write and talk about that I feel the need to have another random thoughts and observations column. Maybe I'll have to start writing another column each week or maybe even expand the radio show.
Britney Griner was sentenced to nine years in prison for violating Russia's drug laws. On the bright side, she won't have to listen to the United States national anthem for nine years.
One of Joe Biden's apologists, I believe from the State Department, had to correct Joe's statements about Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. He confirmed that the United States still supports the 'One China' policy and does not support Taiwanese independence. In referencing China military response to the visit, conducting unannounced missile tests and increasing the number of flights violating Taiwan's airspace, he said the U.S. will continue to present a strong military front to deter China's aggression. But, in the very next sentence he said the U.S. Navy had canceled previously planned and announced Minutemen missile tests in the area. Just so there wouldn't be any misunderstanding. I think China got the message loud and clear, not the one you said you were delivering, but the real message.
Gavin Newsome lied again and as usual probably won't suffer any consequences. UCLA recently announced they would be leaving the PAC 12 conference to join the Big 10 conference in athletics. UCLA Is part of the state's University of California system; Newsome sits on the governing board. He expressed outrage at the announcement claiming that the institution had not advised the governing board nor sought their permission to change athletic conferences. He was going to ensure that it did not happen. As it turns out not only did the administration from the university notify the Board, but they don't have an obligation to do so. Apparently Newsome was absent from the meeting in which this change was discussed and didn't bother to check with anyone else or didn't care to check or even if he did that did not fit his ultimate purpose. But the constitution governing the members of the state university system does not require the governing board's approval. Eh, details.
So let me get this straight: if the proposed gun control legislation passes through Congress, anyone under 21 years old would not have the ability to purchase or own a gun. Proponents say that children under that age are not mature enough to responsibly handle a gun, something that history teaches us is not true. But they are mature enough to decide what gender they are?
How many times would a bear have to break into your house before you would call authorities? For most of us I think it would be once, no more than twice. For Bill Priest of Hartford CT, that magic number is five. A bear broke into his house five days in a row before Bill called authorities. I understand that the first date, the bear wandered into an open garage and found a refrigerator. I would probably be like Bill and just make sure the garage door was closed. But after the bear broke through the back door and destroyed the kitchen, I'd be picking up the phone. So did Bill, but he took a video of the bear in the kitchen. As he did for the next three days. Maybe he thought his videos would go viral and he'd make a lot of money as an influencer. I don't think that's how this works. Fortunately, none of Bill's pets nor family members were harmed in the making of the videos.
No doubt the Chinese Communist party was upset with Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taiwan. They were so mad at America that they allowed her to travel safely back home as punishment. They understand how much damage she's doing to our country.
