still here

Feeling a bit better today, but still under the weather. I hate those times when you get sick and you have to blow your nose so often it gets all raw on the underside and you have to put hand cream on it. One of those gooey things.

So while I go through the tissues I’m trying to optimize this old PC. I cleaned nearly 2 gigs worth of junk files off the old HD, and ran a full scan and defrag. That takes forever.

Aye yi yi, so what’s in the news today?

I see the government is having another round of their endless finger pointing game ...
image
... so boring. But it keeps them from doing much of anything, so that’s probably a good thing. Sequestration? Ask me if I care. Shut the whole damn gov down for 8 months, it won’t impact me at all. I don’t even need the Post Office. I pay all my bills online, and all my packages come UPS. So there.


anything else look interesting? Let’s see ...

Oh boy. Another looney tune goes on a shooting spree .. this time in LA, combined with multiple carjackings. Steal a car, shoot the driver. 3 victims dead, several others wounded, cops pull the guy over and he kills himself.

Authorities located the suspect in a stolen vehicle and followed him to the city of Orange, according to Garaven. When police stopped him, the suspect shot himself at an intersection.

Garaven says the suspect succeeded in stealing a vehicle at each carjacking.

“There have been other people coming forward saying they were shot at or their cars were shot at,” he said, but so far none had reported any serious injury.

The conditions of the wounded victims were unknown.

A spokeswoman for the California Highway Patrol said they didn’t have any active crime scenes on the freeway but the southbound 55 McFadden Avenue off-ramp would be closed until further notice.

The motive for the shootings is still unclear and it’s also unclear if the victims knew each other or the shooter.

“I do not believe any of the victims are related to each other. It might have been a random thing,” he said. “We just don’t know.”

Nutjobs. You’d think the government would check people’s mental health before letting them have cars. Come on, it’s for the children after all.


Oh here we go. Another whizbang, fully qualified for his position of ultimate responsibility: Chicago Police Superintendent blames Sarah Palin, the NRA, government racism for city’s out of control shootings. Wants to ban 2A.

Facing a surging homicide rate and several headline-grabbing murders, Chicago’s top cop is taking aim at lobbyists who he says prevent politicians from implementing more gun control measures.

Appearing on a local Windy City Sunday morning talk show on the radio station WLSAM, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said special interests that lobby politicians to influence their opinion on gun control are the real problem.

“If there was a special interest influencing police work, I believe that would be called corruption,” McCarthy said. “So, if it has to do with donating money, versus a popular vote, I think we have a bigger problem in this country and someone has to wake up to that.”

Gun rights advocates seized on the comments, saying that McCarthy was blaming the city’s gun violence on donors and lobbyists who advocate for the Second Amendment.

“Garry McCarthy’s understanding of our Constitution barely qualifies him as a meter maid, never mind the chief of the nation’s third largest police department,” Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson said.
...
McCarthy told FoxNews.com he never advocated “getting rid of the Second Amendment.” He said he was making the point that there is popular support for new gun control laws and that lobbyists are stopping elected officials from reflecting the will of the people.

“How is it [special interests] are controlling politicians?” he said. “How are they controlling elected officials? It’s not by popular vote.”

McCarthy in the past has blamed “government-sponsored racism” and Sarah Palin for Chicago’s gun violence. He has been outspoken in his opposition to handgun proliferation, telling a radio panel last month he equates fewer guns with improved public safety.

OMFG. Hand in you tin badge right now you utter moron. You don’t deserve to be a litter picker, much less Head Wumpus of the police. Everybody’s fault but yours, is that it? What’s your name white boy, Obama?? And the only reason that the Constitution hasn’t been completely flushed down the toilet in your city is because of lobbyists? Hoo boy. In that case, I guess we’d better thank them from preventing actual tyranny.

Hey Supe: your problem lies in your uneducated, infantile, disrespectful, welfare sucking, drug trafficking, barbaric, criminal, ghetto population. It isn’t that they have guns, legal or otherwise, it’s that they have no respect for themselves or for anyone else that they turn to lethal violence as a way of life, not as a last resort. Teach your citizens how to be people ... civilize them with education and Christianity, family values (like two parent households and marriage) and all the responsibilities and earned self-respect that comes with that, and they might might turn out human. And if that doesn’t work, just pass out machine guns and big bags of ammo and let them have at it. In a couple of weeks 2/3 of them will be dead, so ... problem solved.



What’s this??? OMG, GINGER PHOBIA in Utah school system!!

Student, kicked out of school for having red hair, returns to class

A student at a Utah high school who was suspended for dying her hair red has been allowed to return to classes because the color faded, administrators claimed.

Rylee McKay, a 15-year-old ninth-grader at Hurricane Middle School, was originally suspended for violating the school’s dress code policies, which stipulate that students can only dye their hair within a range of “normal” colors.

School authorities determined that McKay’s hair was too pink when examined under certain lighting, and suspended her until she changed it back.
...
But McKay insisted that her stylist only used red and brown colors to dye her hair, which should be permissible under the policy. Earlier this week, she returned to classes after administrators expressed the view that her hair had faded to an acceptable shade of red.

“They told me it looked like the pink had gone out, and I told them there had never been any pink in it,” she said in an interview with CNN.

Gingerism ... sounds like lawsuit time to me.


Nope, it’s another day I really don’t want to look at the news. I think I’ll grab a bowl of soup and crawl back under the covers.

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.
