RANT: An unramed trio is robbed by four thugs with a gun


Chilling video shows Chicago dad robbed at gunpoint in front of home as wife, kids slept inside

A chilling video captured the moment a Chicago resident was robbed at gunpoint by a group of masked thugs in front of his home as his wife, kids and other relatives slept inside.

Victor Galena Sr. was on his way to work about 6 a.m. Friday in the Windy City’s Hermosa neighborhood when he and two companions were accosted by a group of robbers wearing black ski masks, CBS News Chicago reported.

“They started pointing a gun at my dad and [one of his companions] who was up here on those stairs,” the victim’s son Victor Galena Jr. told the news outlet.

The group had been counting the money that they planned to spend on construction tools that day when they were attacked by thugs.

“It’s the people that you look up to that you call right away when you need someone to defend you, and if they can’t defend you, then who are you going to call if you’re defenseless by yourself?” he added.

Police said the same group of brazen thieves later committed the same crime against at least 10 other people — part of a string of robberies in which they target residents leaving for or arriving at their jobs.

Sure glad that Chicago is “gun free”.

Wait until the vigilantes start to protect themselves.

This gang could be caught in a “honeypot”.  Early AM counting money with armed back up hidden away.

End of gang of robbers.

But then the liberal woke politicians and bureaucrats would be after their scalps.

Teen arrested in random beating of man, 71, as NYPD seeks additional suspect in elderly assault

A 14-year-old boy was busted this week for allegedly slugging an elderly man in an unprovoked attack in Midtown, cops said. 

The teen was nabbed at his home Wednesday and charged with assault in connection to the May 6 assault on a 71-year-old man on West 55th Street near Broadway, police said. 

The boy approached the septuagenarian from behind just after 9 p.m., punched him in the face and pushed him to the ground, authorities said. 

The pint-sized assailant took off, and the senior was taken to Mount Sinai West for medical treatment, cops said. 

Days after the attack, police released a photo of the suspect, standing with one clenched fist, in hopes of tracking him down.

Little coward needs to be treated as an “adult”.  Sorry but Heinlein had the correct take on “juvenile delinquents”.

“I told you that ‘juvenile delinquent’ is a contradiction in terms. ‘Delinquent’ means ‘failing in duty.’ But duty is an adult virtue—indeed a juvenile becomes an adult when, and only when, he acquires a knowledge of duty and embraces it as dearer than the self-love he was born with. There never was, there cannot be a ‘juvenile delinquent.’ But for every juvenile criminal there are always one or more adult delinquents—people of mature years who either do not know their duty, or who, knowing it, fail.” ― Robert A. Heinlein, Starship Troopers 

This 14 year old is a “criminal” and should be treated as such.

POS Tip Demands Are Driving Inflation Higher

 If you leave a few singles in a jar by the register, you assume the recipients are the staff who work there. We have no idea where the Square POS tips go. Recall Doordash and other weasels pocketing driver tips during the pandemic (we should make sure that’s not happening here). All POS tip demands should be mandated to show a disclosure as to where the money goes — and both Square and the retailer should be on hook if it does not go where advertised.

I remember first seeing this at Olive Garden when they first mandated that all Users paying by credit card use their POS (point of sale which happened to be a Piece of <synonym for excrement>) device.  It automagically “suggested” 18% “tip”.   I had no idea but a sneaky suspicion that this was not on the all up and up.  So I always tipped in cash  — and not 18%.  After all I was now doing some of the work and we used to get thin mints with the receipt.

It would seem that “tipping” needs to be disclosed.  Who gets it and how much does the server have to “tip out” to others.  I’m most concerned that this is nothing more than a “DoorDash” price increase.  



RANT: A Leftist college professor demonstrates how to be “stupid”!


 NYC college professor cursed out anti-abortion students tabling at school

A Manhattan college (NB: not manhattan.edu) professor flipped out on a group of students who set up an information table opposing abortion inside the school building — cursing and tossing their pamphlets, video of the interaction shows.

Shellyne Rodriguez, an adjunct professor, told the pro-life students they were “triggering” her students by tabling inside Hunter College in Manhattan earlier this month.

The footage was posted to Twitter by Students for Life of America.

“You’re not educating s–t. This is f–king propaganda,” the art professor told the students tabling on May 2. “What are you going to do like anti-trans next?”

A male student behind the table calmly told her, “I mean no, we’re talking about abortion” and said he was sorry about “triggering” her students.

Rodriguez claimed their demonstration was “violent” and yelled at the male student behind the table that he wasn’t sorry “because you can’t even have a f–king baby,” the video shows.

Sir Michael Caine hits out at ‘bull***t’ suggestion his 1964 movie Zulu incites extremism after it was included on list by government’s Prevent scheme for ‘encouraging far-right sympathies’

Sir Michael Caine has blasted the ‘bull***t’ suggestion his 1964 film Zulu incites the far-Right after it was included on a government list of works that may ‘encourage’ extremism. 

The epic war movie, which also starred cinematic greats Richard Burton and Stanley Baker, depicts the 1879 Battle of Rorke’s Drift during the Anglo-Zulu war, in which 150 British soldiers successfully held off 4,000 Zulu warriors. 

While the soldiers were awarded 11 Victoria Crosses for their efforts, the re-telling of their victory – released some 59 years ago – has previously come under fire for alleged ‘racist overtones’ and ‘factual inaccuracies’.

*** and ***

But leader of the Zulu tribe Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi, now 94, who played own his great-grandfather King Cetshwayo in the film, said it should not be viewed through a 21st century lens.

‘Even if the past is uncomfortable, and perhaps especially when the past is uncomfortable, it needs to be examined and unpacked rather than hidden away. Of course race is a central theme in the film’, he previously told The Times. 

He urged critics of the film to look beyond the view that Africans were depicted as ‘savages’ and praised the way the community recreated history.

He added: ‘When we filmed Zulu, both black and white were recreating a part of history that held tremendous meaning for all of us. Rorke’s Drift was only one battle.

‘It was preceded by Isandlwana, the greatest military victory of an African nation against the British, and it was followed by the Battle of Ulundi, where our nation was defeated and subjugated.

‘What followed was decades of hardship and sorrow. But the spirit of the Zulu nation remains unconquered, and we still thrive in 21st century South Africa.

‘There is still a king on the throne of King Cetshwayo and millions of black South Africans still honour our culture and traditions.

‘Whenever that past is remembered it should always be a celebration of our ongoing fight, and victory, against division. That is worth thinking about, as that is the present-day context of the film Zulu.’

I’ve watch this move several times at different points in my life.  And, each time, I have taken away a different message.  Initially, it was what would make men die like that?  Im sure my high school teachers, mostly ex WWII marines, could have helped me make sense out out if.  I never was able to and hence went on my way.   Later in life, I watched it again and was shocked as “spears versus rifles” ensure a massacre.  Reminded my of the American Revolution and men would line up to be shot at.  And, it WWI where the same tactics rendered huge casualties.  Generals fighting the next war with the last war’s tactics.  Finally, just recently, I watched it again and felt the futility of just all that killing. Argh!

I was surprised in this article by: “The Zulus, known for their bravery and ferocity, were eventually forced to retreat with 350 of their number killed compared to 17 British.”  Watching the movie, you’d have thought it was much worse.  I guess that is “dramatic license”.


“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.” ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

 JPMorgan Chase ‘requires its tech workers give 6 months’ notice before they quit’

A veteran JPMorgan Chase banker fumed over the financial giant’s policy requiring staffers to give six months’ notice before being allowed to leave for another job.

The Wall Street worker, who claims to earn around $400,000 annually in total compensation after accumulating 15 years of experience, griped that the lengthy notice period likely means a lucrative job offer from another company will be rescinded.

Taking to the social media platform Blind — which allows career professionals anonymity so that they can freely post without concern about retribution from their bosses — the worker in the e-trade division lamented over the policy.

*** end quote ***

Seems like this is a form of slavery.  Even if a well compensated form of it.  I can understand wanting to protect your business but it’s a fact of life that every night your most important asset walks out the door.  

A six month notice requirement is different IMHO than a noncompete clause.  One “indentures” you; the other just limits where you can go.

I would assume that if one litigated this, the courts would see it as slavery. 

Of course, that assumes you can get “justice” in a Gooferment court, when Big Business owns so many politicians and bureaucrats.

Adriana, 14, took her own life in her bedroom at her family home in Berkeley Township, New Jersey, on February 3. 

Hours beforehand, she had received a taunting text message from one of the girls who filmed the attack, making fun of her for ‘dripping’ blood on the floor, and being ‘whooped’.

Reportedly the school didn’t call the police.

If I was the parent, I’d have called the police and confronted the juveniles involved.  I might be the one getting arrested.

At the very least, my child would NOT be returning to that school.  There must have been a relative who could have hosted her in a new school district.

This I see as one of the problems of Gooferment Skrules. The parent doesn’t control the flow of money as happens in every kind of free market exchange.  No service; no money.  Try that with any Gooferment”service”!

Bottom line: this is an outrageous incident that just should not have happened.

Real ID was a real mistake and Congress should scrap it at last
by Jeff Jacoby
The Boston Globe
December 28, 2022

*** begin quote ***

“If fully implemented, the law would facilitate the tracking of data on individuals and bring government into the very center of every citizen’s life,” warns the American Civil Liberties Union. Real ID would make Americans’ personal information available to a vast network of federal, state, and local officials — an irresistible lure to overreaching government snoops, to say nothing of a mother lode for identity thieves. Even worse, the requirement that all driver’s licenses and ID cards have an unencrypted barcode puts that personal information within the grasp of anyone with an electronic scanner.

In authoritarian countries, it is taken for granted that citizens must always have their identification forms with them and that governments have a presumptive right to demand information about any individual at any time. That is not the American way. Here, the presumption is that the national government does not have an automatic claim to personal information and may not track individuals at will without probable cause to suspect wrongdoing.

If you’re not familiar with Festivus, Frank Costanza (the brilliant, late Jerry Stiller) hilariously explains the anti-consumerism holiday that people still celebrate in real life in Season 9, Episode 10, The Strike, available on on Netflix. It involves an unadorned metal pole instead of a tree (tinsel is “distracting”), feats of strength and the airing of grievances. Festivusweb.com has more info.

My grievance is the FED (The Federal Reserve Bank is a misnomer. IT ain’t “federal”. It reserves nothing. And, it ain’t a “bank”. It is a private cartel of the elite banks run for their benefit and that of the entrenched politicians.) and its debasement of the US dollar.  Leaving the Gold Standard allowed the Gooferment to spend wildly.



RANT: Is anyone else tire of being made fools of?

These same top-of-ballot counts were also less than the total votes counted for all U.S. House races.  In the nine Arizona districts, 1,325,000 votes were counted for GOP House candidates, while 1,196,000; 1,271,000; and 1,254,00 were totaled for the Senate, governor, and secretary of state GOP candidates.  Again, the Democrat side showed the normal pattern: more top-of-ballot votes.

The idea that anyone is being fooled by Democrat assertions that our elections are “free and fair” is not believed by most of the American people.  Problems with the election in Arizona have Republicans furious, and a majority of nationwide voters agree that our “sacred right to vote” is at risk.

Sad to say, but “elections” are just window dressing.It’s been exposed in numerous examples since LBJ in the 60’s thru to the recent election. 

Given that we are now ruled by “tyrants” what can be done  — shut up and ignore it; revolt; malicious compliance; or “national divorce”.I’m personally tired of being made a fool of. 

What about you?I’m open to suggestions.
