Teh Squeaky Wheel
Sunday greetings from Happy Larryville, GN!
Kawfee doesn’t seem to be doing the trick this morning…now where did I put those caffeine tablets?
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
Busy day today -- my choir Christmas concert is this afternoon and Mrs. Paddy’s is this evening.
Coffee aint working for me either; where’d I leave those cross tops?
Best of luck with the Christmas concert today, Paddy.
This sums up pretty much everything I’ve been thinking lately:
Thanks for the link, Sven. Good article and some thoughts to keep in mind over the next few years, at least.
Hai, Paddy and Sven!
Hope both concerts go splendidly.
Purty good article; thanks for the link.
Your reference to “cross tops” elicited an amused *schnort*.
I enjoyed this response to “Stand With Hillary”:
Slap your grandma.
Thanks for the link, Sven. After I read that I looked at a couple of others and bookmarked the site. I will be checking that regularly.
You’re welcome; the site does have have some good stuff on it.
The truth matters. That’s what irritates me the most with the way the events of the last couple of months have been portrayed. Trayvon Martin is not a hero nor a victim of an overzealous racist white-Hispanic Neighborhood Watch guy; he was a thug who attacked another guy. Michael Brown is not a hero nor a victim of a racist cop who shot him in the back or who shot him as he was surrendering with his hands up; he was another thug who committed a strong-arm robbery before attacking a cop and going for his gun.
A woman named “Jackie” at UVA was not gang raped at a frat house as she lay on her back in a pile of broken glass, nor is she an example of the rape “epidemic” on college campuses cuz that in itself is highly suspect.
Eric Garner was not killed for selling cigarettes; he died because he resisted arrest. Nor was he a model citizen with no knowledge of the police or the criminal justice system; his record lists more than 30 arrests for not only selling cigarettes, but also for assault, resisting arrest, robbery, and drug possession--he knew how the game was played and chose that the day not to play anymore.
That these individuals are the icons of a new social movement in America is absurd. That these events are representative of problems that are shredding the very fabric of the country is even more absurd. That citizens buy in to the hype, spin, and lies coming from the mainstream media and racebaiters like Al Sharpton and join the protests shows what a complete lack of critical thinking exists in 2014.
