Teh Squeaky Wheel
It’s back! Thank you Mr. Blue-gloved Admin! And Jerry and Mac, too!
Yes, I just got back in a bit ago and updated the last two threads to post.
Thank you, Jerry! I missed this place so quickly!
It actually seemed like days. I was surprised to see my comment on yesterday’s thread.
Things have settled down in our part of SoCal. The fires, while still burning, are becoming less dangerous as the winds have subsided. Still windy, but nothing like earlier in the week. We’ll go ahead and unpack today and try to get back to normal.
Lot of home lost this past week, but only one death. Most evacuation orders are being lifted.
Thank you for the update. I have been concerned while cut off.
Watched the video of the police killing Daniel Shaver. That was a mistake. I’m angry and sickened. Story on HotAir if you are interested.
Thank you, I went and watched it. It is a bad trend that has been getting worse for a long time. People wanting a strong master to take care of them is the death of our Republic. There are always people willing to take on that role but they are never the type you want with that kind of power and lack of accountability.
Going back more than ten years I really considered it likely that I would meet my end at police hands. Getting old has caught me off guard and I have still not really figured it out. I never expected to have to.
Happy “We’re Back!” Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven, and Mac!
Thank you for the re-boot, Mr. Wadministrator! Long may your blue glove -- uh, erm -- probe!
Sven -- I read the story, but didn’t watch the video. How he could be found not-guilty is something I just don’t understand.
I’m glad you and Mrs. Sven can relax a bit and unpack. The constant stress is not a good thing.
I’ve got a memorial service to attend later this morning, a Christmas concert and rehearsal on Sunday, and a major paper to write by midnight tomorrow. Yeah, I’m going to be busy. Do I have other things that need to be done? Yep, but they will just have to wait.
Happy Caturday, Sven, Mac and Paddy!
Thank you, Mr. Wadministrator!
Glad to see things are improving in SoCal and that the Sven’s will be unpacking.
Re Daniel Shaver: AFAIC, the jury ought to have been shown that video; I think it reasonably qualifies as evidence. But as usual, The System protects its own.
Eliminate all “immunity” for public officials. And maybe start using the 2A for its clearly intended purpose. 👿
