Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

G’day from Happy Larryville, GN!

Charter Communications does it again: Our intertoobz went out for the second time in 72 hours. This time, it was seemingly so widespread that HoneyLambK and I both got repeated “busy” signals several times. When I finally got through to their infernal automated system, as soon as I spit out the first five (of ten digits) for the account’s phone number, got an automated message that “…their may be a service outage in your area”.

This morning, their official line distills down to “we haven’t got a freakin’ clue why there was a multi-state outage”.

Another example of over-regulation leading to lack of competition; “Nannies corrupt county gummint officials know best, proles; suck it”.

I look forward to the day when there’s a *cough* shortage of pitchforks across this great nation.

Can’t even recall off the top of my head how many former Gwinnett County officials are current or former jailbirds; this place is getting to be Cuyahoga County with more hush puppies.

HA HA HA HA HA HA HA! Galileo GPS satellites launched into wrong orbit.

Since this will make it more difficult for Euroweenies to locate synagogues to vandalize, it’s quite reasonable to blame teh Jooooooos.

Arianespace said the satellites settled into a lower elliptical orbit instead of the circular one intended, and initial analysis suggested the mishap occurred during the flight phase and involved the Fregat upper stage of Soyuz.

“Our aim is of course to fully understand this anomaly,” said Stephane Israel, Arianespace chairman and chief executive. “While it is too early to determine the exact causes, we would like to offer our sincere excuses to ESA and the European commission for this orbital injection that did not meet expectations.”

Coincidence…or something more? You decide. 😉

A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, intermittent Fatwa!
If you don’t like your cable provider, you can always switch to one of the other cable providers in your area. Oh, that’s right -- you can’t! They have a goobermint monopoly! Long ago, whichever cable company provided teh city with the most baksheesh “won” the contract and was allowed to install lines.

Good morning and happy Sunday!

Watching the local coverage of the quake up north; looks like middling damage and no deaths reported so far. We have friends up in the Napa area, but havent been able to contact yet.

Was watching the All Black Hour with Melissa Harris Perry on MSNBC this morning and of course they had the Texas traffic stop incident that Fatwa posted yesterday; they could barely hold back their tears of outrage afterwards.

What I would like to know about Ferguson: how many shots were fired by the police officer? So far, I’ve heard no accounts of errant bullets hitting buildings or cars, so I wonder if every round hit its target along with the one that was fired inside the police car.

I’m also tired of the “the conversation every black father has with his black son” about dealing with the police story lines. My white father had the same conversation with me when I started driving: be polite, make no sudden movements, do what you are told and don’t do anything until you are told. Keep your hands visible at all times. Don’t preemptively reach for the vehicle registration in the glove box; when you do reach for it, tell the officer that you are doing so. All my white friends 40 years ago had the same conversation.

Heya, Jerry!
I’ll be sure to warn Teh Younger of your upcoming business trip -- he can alert the rest of the search & rescue team to prepare for extra tom-fooolery.
