news briefs and random thoughts

A few items of interest from here and there.

With compliments from those wonderful folks who belong to a religion of peace.

An Afghan policewoman and a pregnant teacher were kidnapped and hanged by scum referred to as ‘militants’ on Monday.
The murders follow a string of attacks on women working for government institutions over the last few months.

Apparently there are a few brave woman in that blighted place who want to know how to read and write and work outside the home and, who do not want to spend their lives barefoot and pregnant in a kitchen with a dirt floor.

I guess some men just want their women as stupid as they are.

From the department of, You Just Can Not Trust Anyone Anymore.

I’ve been sharing stories of the bizarre and stupid for a long time.  Every once in awhile I think I have stumbled upon one that makes me think, but only for a very short time, that I have found the most bizarre and dumb ever and there won’t be any more.
Of course as you already know, I’m wrong every time and that’s because it seems to be human to be stupid.  And to get more so as time goes on.
But this one surely does take a prize of some kind, and it doesn’t come from France or from Britain.
This one brief bit comes from Italy.

GENOA, Italy, Dec. 19 (UPI)—Italian police said they began the third day of their search for a serial killer who disappeared when he was on good behavior leave from prison.

Bartolomeo Gagliano, 55, was convicted of three murders and an attempted murder in the 1980s after he attacked three other people.

Gagliano was on good behavior leave Tuesday morning when he threatened a baker at gunpoint to drive him to Genoa, where he was supposed to turn himself back into authorities at a criminal psychiatric hospital, ANSA reported.

But Gagliano never returned and police have been unable to find him.

Gee. Imagine the disappointment of the authorities when after giving his word, he didn’t show up.
Imagine the fear of the community knowing the nut case was out there somewhere.  Maybe next door slicing and dicing the neighbor?

I guess he had a human (?) right to good conduct leave and never mind his past performance.  A performance that told the powers that be, Nothing!

UPDATE!  He was found and arrested in France last night.

Google is still making the news here. As concerns Europe that is.  We may all have various bitches and gripes about that company but I’m not aware we are too concerned about them and competition.  Are we?  Well, the European commission is concerned.  They wants limits on competition, is how I read things.  More socialism and less capitalism.

‘Unacceptable’: Brussels dismisses Google offer to improve competition

Google’s proposals to counter European concerns about its dominant position in the search business do not go far enough, the Continent’s top anti-trust official has warned, putting pressure on the California tech giant as the European Commission’s investigation into the matter nears its conclusion.

The Competition Commissioner, Joaquin Almunia, said Google’s latest proposals, put forward in October, weren’t “acceptable” in that they didn’t “eliminate our concerns regarding competition”. He said the EC hadn’t decided whether it would impose a fine on the company, and that “at this moment there is little time left, but the ball is still in Google’s court”.

However, according to an English translation of an interview he gave to a Spanish radio station, he added: “But within a short timeframe the ball will be here and then it will be the moment to take decisions.”

The regulator has been looking at Google’s influence since late 2010, with the case expected to conclude next year, at which point the commission could begin a process to impose fines or, if the two sides can reach a deal, agree a settlement.

Google, for its part, said it had “made significant changes to address the EC’s concerns, greatly increasing the visibility of rival services and addressing other specific issues”.

Yeah I know I mentioned this a long time ago but, this story reminds me.
How’s this for increasing competition and making a level playing field. Not just the tech ppl. No. How about a rule enforced by law, that every 6 pack of Coke must have at least one can of Pepsi and maybe even one of Dr. Pepper as well. Same with beer. Now there’s an idea. You can take this to new and unknown limits never thought of or seen before.  Can I copy-write all that?

OBAMA in the news again.  He’s never out of it, what president could be. But this time, well.  He needs to recognize that whatever faults they have that he doesn’t approve of, Russia is a sovereign nation and how they deal with internal problems is not his business.  If it doesn’t threaten America, the subject should be dropped.  Wardmom’s comment about policing the world comes to mind.  Maybe I should forward her comment to the WHouse.  Cept there won’t be anyone there as smart as she is, and so they wouldn’t understand it anyway.

The homosexual community worldwide has been made aware of Russian attitudes and the policy they have there on that subject. Fine. Let them write and complain to President Putin if they want to.  But I really don’t think it’s any business of our govt. in DC to lecture the Russians or to make a demonstration in the form of who we send to the Sochi games in 2014.  I’m referring now to the winter Olympics being held there.

Obama is sending high profile gay rights activists as part of “official presence” at the Sochi games. Some heads of state are already saying they won’t attend the opening of same. The USA is sending Billie Jean King as a member of the official US delegation.
He’s done that to show the Russians where our country stands on the issue, is my unasked for opinion. 
And btw .... I think the Russians are making a mistake freeing the tree huggers from greenpeace .  I predict that now they’ll believe if caught again, the Russians will be tame as pussy cats again.  And so given time, they will do it again.  Maybe not but what are the odds this recent demonstration has taught them anything?  Now if Uncle Joe were still alive ....  Nah. Bad thought.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
