The Hunt for Red October

A great read by Tom Clancy and so technical that I feel he explains it well enough that I could pull a five-hundred foot long nuclear attack submarine out of dock and head to open sea. Just like in the movie, the Russians have lost a huge nuclear submarine. The headline said they lost it,Continue reading “The Hunt for Red October”

I Thought I Heard it All

Keystone. Car 54 Where are you? Uvalde. The police shot and killed a double amputee. Not the athletic, mobile type running on two prosthetic limbs. No. Stumps. He was trying to run away on his stumps. They caught him by walking. He did, however, have a butcher knife he was wielding, so, according to theContinue reading “I Thought I Heard it All”

Second Chances

Not everybody deserves them. Murderers should die the same way they killed. Thieves should have to pay back ten times what they stole at whatever rate they pay working prisoners per license plate, or whatever. If it starts to take ten years prison time to start paying back small fines, criminals may think twice. NoContinue reading “Second Chances”

Did I Hear That Right?

The Memphis Police Department, embroiled in the murder of one of its citizens they took an oath to serve and protect, has decided they will simply stop racial profiling. Simple. Who knew it would be that easy? Saying they will stop racial profiling is the same as making a recipe for a cake that requiresContinue reading “Did I Hear That Right?”

Tyre Nichols

By now, the whole world has seen the disgusting video of the beating, er murder, of another innocent black man at the hands of a lynch mob disguised as police officers in the city of Memphis, TN. Man’s inhumanity to man. Not black v. white; no, black on black. Go figure. Like black men don’tContinue reading “Tyre Nichols”

Better Late?

If you call me up and don’t start speaking within the first five seconds, my ass is gonna hang up on your ass and I will block your number for all-time. Pet peeve? Probably more like a foible. Although I am actually avoiding the Old Man Syndrome where everything irritates you, and that is probablyContinue reading “Better Late?”

Just Let Go

Brilliance comes in many forms… As a perk for General Managers, a four-day all-expenses resort stay on the Emerald Coast in Florida. One of the activities was deep-sea fishing. Some deep-sea fisherman hooked a large fish, presumably an Ahi Tuna which can grow up to eight feet and 200 pounds. When I told the DomesticContinue reading “Just Let Go”

One More Reason..

I don’t live in Alaska—I do not want to die of a polar bear attack. Unfortunately, a mother and her one-year old baby had to pay the price for man’s encroachment on polar bears, eliminating fruitful lands and driving the bears to find food wherever they can find it. They found this particular bear andContinue reading “One More Reason..”

Abandonment

This will probably be the fastest blog I will ever type since I am so passionate about the subject. What the fuck is wrong with people? I have bragged about how nice the people out here are, and just when its safe to go into the water, an idiot has damned her soul to aContinue reading “Abandonment”

Much Ado…

“A green comet will appear in the night sky for the first time in 50,000 years.” Shut up. Talk to me about something that is documentable, because I will come back and tell you that it absolutely, positively, was 43,740 years and they wouldn’t be able say shit. They know about as much about itContinue reading “Much Ado…”
