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?”

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?”

Solutions

Everywhere you look…problems. Here’s a few solutions… “I kill people everywhere I go,” says a madman arrested for murders in Ohio and New Mexico. That’s a problem. Solution: don’t let him go anywhere. Put him in a prison camp and throw away the key. Better yet… Kids are getting killed in our schools… That’s aContinue reading “Solutions”

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..”

TANSTAAFL

Now that all ECON majors have joined the party, this has absolutely nothing to do with economics. However, if you are a good economics student, a true believer, you will come right back and tell me that everything has to do with economics. There Ain’t No Such Thing As A Free Lunch is simply theContinue reading “TANSTAAFL”

Finally!

How many years and how many lives later, a dog owner is being held accountable for a murder his unrestrained dog committed on a little girl. Dogs are not natural killers; they are taught that and I hope the owner has to suffer some horrible consequences, commensurate with the pain inflicted by his dog. IContinue reading “Finally!”

Equality

You asked for it, you got it. Amber McLaughlin. In an episode right out of Criminal Minds, a funeral home owner was making a tidy profit by dismembering corpses and selling off their body parts. In another episode right out of Criminal Minds, a woman is killed when a rogue wave hit a cruise ship.Continue reading “Equality”
