RANT: Multiple DUIs

Thursday, May 31, 2012

Instead of focusing on the average joe who has a beer with dinner, this is the problem! 4 DUIs. Why is he out of jail?

Of course, then the problem would be solved and no need for “checkpoints” as revenue raising.

CHIEF RAYMOND J. HAYDUCKAAdvisory: Cops catch drunk driver after near collision and chase

Hi fjohn reinke,

A drunk driver, who had been convicted four times previously for driving while under the influence, was arrested Saturday morning after nearly striking a police car and leading officers on a chase. The incident began at 1:30am as Sergeant Frank Lombardo was driving east on Route 522. William Campbell age 52 of Franklin Park was operating his 1994 Ford pickup truck south on North Umberland Way. He entered the intersection of Route 522 without stopping and nearly ran into Sergeant Lombardo’s marked patrol car. The sergeant had to slam on his brakes to avoid a collision.

The sergeant then activated his lights and siren attempting to stop the vehicle. The pickup truck accelerated and struck two curbs as it winded through the South Ridge Townhomes development. Campbell then pulled onto New Road and headed east. He turned off of New Road into a commerical development accelerating behind some buildings. Sergeant Lombardo pursued him behind the buildings where Campbell made a U-turn and came back at the officer. Sergeant Lombardo was able to get his vehicle out of the way as Campbell pulled pass. Campbell then pulled up to the rear of one of the commercial buildings and parked his vehicle. He stumbled out of the driver’s seat without explanation. Sergeant Lombardo was able to arrest Campbell without further incident.

Campbell, who in addition to four driving while under the influence convictions has ten license suspensions, was charged with driving while under the influence and eluding. He was transported to police headquarters and processed. His bail was set at $25,000. He was lodged in the Middlesex County Correction Center in default of bail.

FUN: Another bad joke

Thursday, May 31, 2012

FROM HR SUE:

Sven and Ole

Two Minnesota engineers were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up.

A woman walks by asks what they were doing.

“Ve’re supposed to find da height of dis flagpole, ” said Sven, “but
ve don’t haff a ladder.”

The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple bolts, and
laid the pole down on the ground.

Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement,
announced, “Twenty one feet, six inches,” and walked away.

Ole shook his head and laughed. “Ain’t dat just like a voman! Ve ask
fer da height and she gives us da length!”

Guess it could have been worse. The “woman” could have been blond. LOL!

POLITICAL: Now that we have a pot head as Prez …

Obama and His Pot-Smoking ‘Choom Gang’

*** begin quote ***

Unlike Bill Clinton, Barack Obama never tried to say he didn’t inhale.

In his 1995 memoir “Dreams of My Father,” Obama writes about smoking pot almost like Dr. Seuss wrote about eating green eggs and ham. As a high school kid, Obama wrote, he would smoke “in a white classmate’s sparkling new van,” he would smoke “in the dorm room of some brother” and he would smoke “on the beach with a couple of Hawaiian kids.”

*** end quote ***

Now that we have a pot head as Prez …

… as a little L libertarian, I’ve always thought that our “drug policy”, “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”, was a best “misguided”, at worst “corrupt”. We have too many examples, anecdotal evidence, of pot not being as “bad” as booze, of high achievers who “inhaled” …

Don’t you think we could have a national dialogue about “drugs”, “drug policy”, and factual evidence?

We have mj prohibition because of hemp’s competition with the politically connected paper industry.

We have mj prohibition because of Hollywood’s “reefer madness” propaganda.

We have mj prohibition because of its association with the black community.

We have arguably ¼ of the federal prison population due to mj.

We have sick people, who need it and have no alternative for them. Not an effective alternative. Never mind a cheap alternative.

Ignore that not everyone who has a medical mj RX needs it. There are folks who legitimately need it (i.e., AIDS, chemotherapy patients, glaucoma).

Since the Chinese dynasty, there has been a residual addiction rate. Regardless if addicts were sentenced to death in China. Dealers were imprisoned for long stretches in Southeast Asia. No “public policy” makes a dent in the problem.

If the Gooferment can’t keep “drugs” out of its prisons, then perhaps we need a better strategy?

Walmart and Walgreens seem to be able to restrict access to stuff from minors.

So, why can’t we shift from the “punishment” meme that is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient to a “treatment” meme. 

How much worse could we do?

SERVICE: FACEBOOK has risks; parents should engage a “Glenda”

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

I found something disturbing aimed at one of my young Facebook “friends”.

(You know they “friend” me when they think it’s “kool” to have some “friends” and want to build up their count. Then forget that the fat old white guy injineer “stalks” them forever. Like Glenda the Good Witch, watching over them and their online presence.)

So, I immediately alerted on it to the “command authority” (i.e., her parents) via the approved channels (i.e., her aunt).

Action was taken.

This post suggests that parents need to have a view into their children’s onine activities.

Of course, I offer my “glenda service” at my usual discount. (LOL!) But, you’ll have to be “kool” about how you get a Glenda on to their friend’s list.

“Wonder what that crazy old koot is up to this week end? You see him on Facebook don’t you, dearest child of mine?” May work?

Or, find a trusted friend or relative that the child has already been “friend-ed” during their naïve days, and assign them Glenda duty.

Forewarned is forearmed. Or in this case, four eyeballed. (Yeah, I know it falls flat. But you get the idea!)

POLITICAL: “We’re all Catholics now.” — Mitt Romney

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

ere’s some discussion of the issue of the Obama mandate and a quote I hadn’t heard before.

Breaching the Wall

*** begin quote ***

I’m starting to entertain the thought that a litmus test for bad guys versus good guys is that the former want to limit religion by arbitrary state redefinition, the latter to limit government to the terms of the Constitution.

I’ve been concerned with religious freedom pretty keenly since well before I set foot in law school, and I know that this issue is one where, whatever his other defects, Romney stands in stark contrast to Obama and his administration. “We’re all Catholics now.”

*** end quote ***

I think that he’s hit the nail on the head.

Limit Gooferments; not people!

RANT: “Audit the Fed” has some life

Tuesday, May 29, 2012

*** begin quote ***

Dear Ferdinand,

This is it!

Earlier today, I received word that Audit the Fed (H.R. 459) is now scheduled for a vote this July in the U.S. House of Representatives!

This historic moment is only possible thanks to your relentless pressure. Now we must turn up the heat to secure victory – first in the House and then in Harry Reid’s U.S. Senate.

That’s why I hope you’ll read the note below from Senator Rand Paul and take immediate action.

In Liberty,

Matt Hawes
Vice President
Campaign for Liberty

*** end quote ***

If one has to find the one single thing, that has impoverished us as a nation, while allowing the Gooferment to grow out of control and dramatically preventing us from controlling that “sprawl”, then one only has to look at the 1913 creation of the Fed.

Killing it wouldn’t solve our problems. 

But it would go along way to stop the hole we’re in from being dug to even grater depths.

AND, it would stop “inflation”. The automatic debasement of our unit of account.

The Dead Old White Guys must be rolling over to see us make this basic mistake.
