Time to go back to the land: Planning to be as off-grid as I can - in the process there'll be music, guns, guitars, a smattering of politics (really kind of over that), CNC routing, yeah - a bunch of other stuff, too. Conservative with libertarian leanings - no wookie suit, yet. Μολὼν λαβέ - ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒE
On three separate days this July, invisible and odorless gases will be released in subway stations and at street level in all five boroughs of New York City. But officials in the New York Police Department will not be alarmed — it was their idea.
The gases, known as perfluorocarbons, will be dispersed to study how airborne toxins would flow through the city after a terrorist attack or an accidental spill of hazardous chemicals, the department said on Wednesday.
YHGTBSM – what in the name of Jesus Christ on a pogo stick would lead these TSA idiots to believe this was/is a good thing? If there was ever any doubt that TSA is anything but a tax dollar boondoggle attached to a way demoralize American citizens, this kinda squelches that doubt. What part of “illegal” doesn’t compute for these folks? Here’s a hint for them:
1.forbidden by law; unlawful; illicit
2.unauthorized or prohibited by a code of official or accepted rules
3.a person who has entered or attempted to enter a country illegally
“Wave after wave of young men surged forward to take turns punching and kicking their victim. The victim’s friend, a young woman, tried to pull him back into his car. Attackers came after her, pulling her hair, punching her head and causing a bloody scratch to the surface of her eye. She called 911. A recording told her all lines were busy. She called again. Busy. On her third try, she got through and, hysterical, could scream only their location.Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. Church and Brambleton. It happened four blocks from where they work, here at The Virginian-Pilot.”
There’s a whole lot of “what were they thinking” running through my mind right now:
Why weren’t their car doors already locked?
Why didn’t they just drive off? While a car may be vulnerable – it has more of a position of strength than an unarmed human.
Unarmed? In this day and age, why?
While being attacked, she called 911 – and it took three attempts to get through past “all lines are busy.” In the PD’s defense, we don’t know if that recording was cell service or 911 call center generated. But remember – even once she got through – the police were only minutes away. Meanwhile, the mob beating continued…
Why did the responding officer record the incident as “simple assault”? Treat it as a mugging – less paperwork?
Why did the paper bury a story involving two of its staff? Political correctness?
From Twitter the next day:
“I feel for the white man who got beat up at the light,” wrote one person.
“I don’t,” wrote another, indicating laughter. “(do it for trayvon martin)”
Weiner…heh. The man is a freakin’ penis with ears. Doncha just *love* people who answer a question with a question? And what is up, with the grade-school hand clapping?
How about instead of allowing existing tax cuts to expire, you asshats try to balance a budget with what you already have? That’s what I have to do at my house – if the money’s gone, I don’t freakin’ spend any more. What is so damned hard to comprehend?
