We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
...how heartening, as one watches the viral video of Obama droning on while a mere foot and a half away Mr. Jantjie rubs his belly and tickles his ear, to think that the White House’s usual money-no-object security operation went to the trouble of flying in Air Force One, plus the “decoy” Air Force One, plus support aircraft, plus the 120-vehicle motorcade or whatever it’s up to by now, plus a bazillion Secret Service agents with reflector shades and telephone wire dangling from their ears, to shepherd POTUS into the secured venue and then stand him onstage next to an $85-a-day violent schizophrenic.
The spoiled rich kid defense sounds like a natural for a Law and Order episode. Reminds me of the serious coin some Long Island towns make renting luxury jail cells for misdemeanor federal and state offenses to the deep pockets crowd. Will there be a legislative fix or does money talk?
The Brooks piece is yet another reminder the yearning for a new Caesar has to be watched and squashed.
Sounds like everyone is for unions until it inconveniences them. Though the thought of MSNBC hosts doing a walkout in solidarity is amusing.
I see that we have a pattern here in MT. We have of course had the community activists who were moved into town by their handlers in Seattle. Every Monday morning now we get 2 or 3 claims of rape on campus. This is an organized response led by the women "handlers/agents of change" who lost the court battle last year against one of our football players. They have stepped up the action.
Now of course we have the young woman who "accidentally, cause I was mad" pushed her bridegroom over the ledge in Glacier Park. Eight days married and couldn't get the sex thing right! We have the judge in Ravalli county who refused to hear a sexual harassment case by a white male sheriff against a white female on the force who stuck her finger up his ass "just playing" in the office don't you know! Yup that judge found his way to the heart of power (Seattle). The next time you hear someone call themselves "agents of change" you run--then throw up because you have just met women who are only controlled by exterior handlers--not by any sense of self discipline. And, then when they are turned loose to wonder the world they end up in an Italian court on murder charges. Read here for the story of the Montana murderess: http://missoulian.com/news/local/more-testimony-report-will-factor-into-graham-murder-sentence/article_e4c5c060-645e-11e3-b3bc-001a4bcf887a.html
My point being that it is beginning to be obvious the great damage that we have done to our daughters during the past 25 years. My hunch is that this gal will get off very lightly--my other hunch is that somewhere underground her and her girlfriends are having a sick giggle.
Another school shooting in Colorado?
Does anyone else wonder about this?
I am assuming that most folks know by now that evil actions are frequently co-ordinated by people other than those who actually commit the crime. I am just wondering: does this cluster of school shooting events lead to some one trying to prove a point? Someone close enough to students who can always find the weakest who can be convinced to do stupid things?
"Has our society reached a point where it is too stupid to survive?"
After nearly a hundred years of creeping totalitarianism with leaders chosen by the lowest common denominator and a government, legal and educational system all geared exclusively toward protecting and subsidizing the weak, lazy, incompetent and dim witted how could it be anything but.
How ironic is it that the people who rant the loudest about teaching evolution in our schools are the ones who have the least inkling how it works.
I notice all this cold weather seems to coincide with a drop in solar activity (http://www.space.com/23934-weak-solar-cycle-space-weather.html). I had no idea SUVs, coal electric plants, and cow farts had such an impact. Up till now, I just thought they influenced weather on the earth, but if it's cooling the sun too! Man are we in trouble!
I think you're right about that idiot Schultz (wasn't he a fat corporal in German POW camp in the '70s?). I think it's the same for all lefties. It reminds me of Whoopie Goldberg excusing Roman Polanski for raping an underage girl: "It's not like it was rape rape".
I also thought that the prof's email was matter-of-fact. While it may have destroyed the student’s argument, I don’t believe it was intended to destroy the student personally. But, you really never can tell how sensitive and/or stressed a student is. I’ve never regretted being too gentle.
I enjoy your very helpful information anyone offer to your reports. I'll take a note of your blog post as well as have a look at once more below usually. Now i am reasonably i shall learn many brand new products in this article! Good luck for one more!
