Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
Lazy creatures -- get to work!
A blessed Sabbath, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Sven!
I hope you and Mrs. Sven (and the raccoons) are staying warm. It’s been rather chilly in the mornings.
Hai, Sven and Paddy!
I otter commend Mac for today’s thread GIF.
Glad to see SoCal’s expecting some rain toward the end of this coming week; hoping it leads to more feelthy lucre. 😎
I’ll be curious to see how all of the knee-jerk elimination of discounts for NRA members by a couple of dozen corporations -- including Delta and United Airlines, Hertz, National, Enterprise and Alamo Car Rentals and some others -- plays out.
I also suspect that NRA memberships will be up as a result of the latest round of 2A attacks by our intellectual and social betters.
IMO, Scott Israel -- the first Jewish sheriff in FL history -- ought to be gibbeted. (And fuck him for making Jews look bad, too.)
We’re getting the checkbook out tonight: NRA, GOA, SAF, and CRPA.
Just watched Jake Tapper’s interview with Sheriff BrowardCoward; he’s an egotistical scumbag who appears to believe he has zero accountability for Parkland.
Frankly, I hope a gang of dead and injured students’ parents combine him with a lamppost and a rope to good effect.
I am sad to say that I think he would be more likely to face reprisals if the shooter had been black and his deputies had shoot him and saved the kids.
He will have strong protectors who are very grateful for this PR treasure. Gun grabbers have had a hard time with the guy in Texas using an AR-15 to stop the church shooter, saving lives, and Democrats attacking Republicans like the Democrat that shot up the Republican softball players and the Democrat who attacked Rand Paul. It is hard to paint conservatives as paranoid nuts when Democrats keep assaulting them. This was a priceless event to drown all that out and wave the bloody shirt.
I don’t go in for the Infowars/ Alex Jones carp but cynical and unprincipled opportunists using the children to push their agenda? You bet! I expect they will run cover for this guy as long as he serves them.
It sure looks like ex-deputy Peterson has more protection than those kids. Priorities, I guess.
“We’re looking into it. It’s an active investigation. That’s the first I’ve heard about this. That hasn’t been corroborated. You don’t blame the President if someone in the military deserts. My deputies have done amazing things.”
IOW -- it’s not my fault and you can’t blame me for anything.
But, hey! There’s going to be an “after-action” and “lessons learned” report! That should make everything better.
I’m surprised that the BLM people haven’t already turned on this shooting with the usual “it’s getting attention only because of white victims.”
And I wonder why “white privilege” didnt protect more of those high school students.
This is worth watching.
This grieving father makes the most sense of anyone and lets Wallace have it.
Of course. He’s a member of The Brotherhood of Brave Heroic Sheepdogs Local 38; those school kids and staff were just kulaks (or, as the cops like to say “civilians”.)
From the FL State Code:
30.07 Deputy sheriffs.—Sheriffs may appoint deputies to act under them who shall have the same power as the sheriff appointing them, and for the neglect and default of whom in the execution of their office the sheriff shall be responsible.
