2 dead, several injured as storms rip through Florida
Published January 17, 2016  FoxNews.com

Florida officials say two adults have been killed and four children have been seriously injured after two suspected tornadoes swept through central Florida early Sunday.

The dead and injured were all members of the same family and living in a mobile home in Duette, Fla., near Tampa.

One would think that “we” could build “mobile homes” that could keep folks safe. Or why do “we” permit them at all?

RANT: The Law of Karma

Steelers leave Cincinnati bruised, battered — and alive in AFC playoffs

# – # – # – # – # 

Did the “gods of football” deliver Karmic justice to the Cincinnati fans for booing and throwing garbage on Pittsburgh Steeler QB Big Ben when he was taken off injured?

And, to reinforce the lesson, those same “gods of football” did it by befogging the brains of the Cincinnati defense. 

How does that line go?

“Those whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.” — Euripides

I always thought it meant “crazy”, but last night I got the true meaning.

A true champion respects his opponent; because in the end, our true opponent is ourselves.

Last night demonstrated that to any who watched.

Well done, “gods of football” for demonstrating STARKLY the Law of Karma — what goes around, comes around.

Usually, exponentially worse.

So, be careful what you wish for others, you might get it back — bigger and harder.

Wow!

And remember the old Cincinnati coach’s quote that was on the locker room scroll: “The key to winning is poise under stress.”

Guess no one read that one!

Ross Ulbricht, founder of the dark web marketplace, the Silk Road, was sentenced to life in prison in spite of the fact that he committed no violent crimes — though the FBI attempted to paint a false picture that he did, albeit without filing formal charges. The prosecution was rife with corruption and scandal; two FBI agents involved in the case were charged with stealing Bitcoin during the investigation. In July, one admitted to stealing $700,000 worth of the digital currency.

Sorry, but this is absurd.

Even more important, if the prosecution is not honest and above board, then it should be thrown out.

Argh!

RANT: It’s a GAME people

Video shows apparent stabbing following Redskins – Cowboys game at FedEx Field

*** begin quote ***

LANDOVER, Md. – Video of what appears to be a stabbing at FedEx Field following Monday night’s Redskins – Cowboys game has surfaced online.

*** and ***

Another incident posted online shows a fight between fans breaking out in the stands during the game.

*** end quote ***

Hey, geniuses, it a <synonym for the ongoing act of procreation> GAME!

Sure, I raz my friends, relatives, acquaintances, relatives of friends, old classmates, and even Facebook “friends”, but when it comes to MP4B = “Millionaires Playing For Billionaires”, I don’t get that concerned.

It’s not like I am going out and “winning the game”. Or getting my <synonym for donkey> whipped or a concussion.

Get a life, people.

There are really problems in the world for you to solve. 

We have enough politicians, bureaucrats, terrorists, criminals, and ne’er-do-wells figuring out how to get us fighting with each other. We don’t have to help them by creating artificial division between us.

And, the grand cosmic scale of things, to quote Rick in Casablanca: “And you never will. But I’ve got a job to do, too. Where I’m going, you can’t follow. What I’ve got to do, you can’t be any part of. Ilsa, I’m no good at being noble, but it doesn’t take much to see that the problems of three little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. Someday you’ll understand that.”

As a Giants fan, I have to say thanks to Dallas Cowboys. 

But, it’s a “hill of beans”.

Smarten up, people.

Argh!

RANT: It’s a GAME! Not a war.

Texas-Baylor game interrupted by massive bench-clearing scuffle

# – # – # – # – # 

Disgraceful.

What are “we” or “they” teaching these young men? Certainly not how to be a competitor, a gentleman, or a warrior.

It’s a GAME! Not a war.

Join the Marines if you want to go to war. And, they won’t tolerate such a shocking lack of discipline. 

A competitor, a gentlemen, or a warrior must be disciplined if there’s to be any chance of success in a battle, a struggle, or a life.

Very disappointing.

Bread and circuses — that’s what football has become.

Sorry, time to downsize the whole thing in importance.

RANT: Why they haven’t struck more often and harder?

Security Theater: Customary Federal Pointlessness
By Fred Reed
December 4, 2015

*** begin quote ***

The future? Hard to say. As I write, President B. Hussein Obama is endeavoring to import tens of thousands of Moslems. It will be impossible to screen them, presumably making the importation a free ride into the US for terrorists if they so choose. It is not politically incorrect to note that the countless Moslem terrorists in recent years have been countless Moslem terrorists. It is, however, true. The greatest question about terrorists is not whether they can, but why they haven’t.

*** end quote ***

Stipulating that all this “security” is nothing more than “theater”, as originally identified by Bruce Schneier @schneier.com, this is an essential interesting question.

If it’s so easy, why haven’t the terrorists struck more and harder.

It’s not like there are not huge numbers of gun free zones.

Perhaps there are NOT as many terrorists as we have been led to believe?

Maybe the pool of potential “suicide bombers” isn’t so large?

Hmmm, it which case, “cut bono”? The Gooferment keeping us “safe”!

Argh!

Wake up, Sheeple. You’re being shorn again.

RANT: What did Sandy Berger take?

Thursday, December 3, 2015

Sandy Berger, former national security adviser, dies
By Nick Gass12/02/15 09:44 AM EST Updated 12/02/15 11:04 AM EST

*** begin quote ***

Berger’s legacy was marred, however, when he pleaded guilty in 2005 to removing highly classified documents from the National Archives in Washington the previous year. The inspector general of the National Archives said that a staff member had witnessed the former NSA adviser wrapping the classified documents around his socks and under his pants.

He was fined $50,000, sentenced to two years’ probation and stripped of his security clearance for three years. Following a Justice Department investigation and subsequent congressional hearings, Berger voluntarily gave up his license to practice law in 2007.

*** end quote ***

What did Sandy Berger take?

And why?

Guess we’ll never have an answer to that question.

Had to be at the behest and benefit of the Clintons.

Another unanswered question.
