The Great Idaho Monkey Killer

I think one of the more bizarre stories I have followed this past year was that of the great Idaho monkey killer.

At some point in an evening filled with serious drinking and a complete loss of judgement, two men concocted a plan. I have a good idea one surely spouted off, "let's break into the zoo and steal a monkey." It is unclear at what moment the men thought this was a good idea- however history indicates that they indeed acted on the plan. They broke into the zoo and then into a cage housing the monkeys. Remember, two men thought this was a good idea. Oddly, the other man seems to have escaped unscathed. That's how deals go.

One of the men wrapped his coat around a monkey, and then tried to pitch the monkey over a fence to his drunken friend. All hell broke loose. The monkey did not go quietly into the good night.

At some point during the would be kidnapping, the monkey must have pissed off his would be captors to such an extent- that the kidnappers thought it was necessary to beat the monkey to death.

It matters not where you are in your life or what worldly horrors you may be enduring. Know this. You  are probably going to wake up tomorrow, knowing full well that you did not break into a zoo the previous night and kill a harmless monkey- nor will you be arrested, plastered all over the news, and be sentenced to seven years in prison for the incident.

I really can't imagine the shame or guilt this guy must be feeling or how bad it is about to get. Can you imagine his arrival at prison? Ugh. http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/idaho-man-prison-killing-zoo-monkey-19194782#.UZXPIBz5knY

Was The Benghazi Consulate Just a Front For a CIA Operation?

Probably.

In the days following the Benghazi fiasco, I stumbled onto a story similar to the one that I am going to link here.

It makes sense that the CIA would be setting up camp in Libya and using a consulate as our "cover story." Telling the truth might go a long way in clearing up all of the confusion that we've had about who was in charge of what. Was Hillary (the state department) in charge or was the CIA?

Maybe that's why nothing happened.

I only have one question. If this story is true, why would a 7 member CIA strike force evacuate without Stevens and his aide? (and just how was it that a couple of ex-Navy Seals just happened by?)

When Thirty Seven Million Died...

I had no idea that 37 million casualties took place 99 years ago this July. We managed to kill over 60 million in WW2. Nearly 100 million people died in two wars.

WW1 must have been one savage conflict. How much have we learned since then? My gut tells me, damn little.

Excellent song. Sometimes this is where my reading takes me. Thanks, Jules.

Obama Officially Becomes Worst President Ever

So President Five Iron, our Imperial Leader, has had a week filled with testimony regarding complete indifference in letting diplomats get killed, using the IRS to punish his enemies, and eavesdropping and taking media records in an effort to find out who was leaking information.

He of course, knew nothing about any of it.

The comparisons to Nixon are startling.

Snipped this from a yahoo message board...

If it walks like a fascist, talks like a fascist, seizes records like a fascist, lies to the public like a fascist, audits like a fascist, threatens enemies like a fascist....


So after that, I stumbled onto this gem which is actually written by a LIBERAL writer. It's hard to believe we could have anyone worse than Nixon and Carter. But then again, the Clintons' do refer to  Obama as the "amateur." Being called names by two of the the most psychopathic liars ever- is an accomplishment all in itself.

I Like The Old Fashioned Dumb Shits

This week, I played back and forth with some kid from Huffington Post. He simply can't or won't understand what a Constitutional Republic is. More specifically, he could not distinguish a constitutional republic from a democracy. He is apparently, a new age dumb shit. I like the old fashioned dumb shits.

The old fashioned dumb shits were the people I grew up with who knew they were beyond their field of expertise when the subject matter of any given conversation was not something they knew or cared about. We were all old fashioned dumb shits at various points in our lives. There is no shame in simply admitting, "I don't know." Or saying, "Could that guy be right?"

The old fashioned dumb shits just kept their mouths shut and tried to learn something from the people who knew something.

I must remember that this kid is the product of a government run school system. Had he been home schooled- he would certainly know more than he does. So there's that.

He says that millions of people think we have a democracy and therefore- they can't possibly be wrong. He even says to me, "so one guy is right and millions are wrong?" (That is precisely the definition of a democracy)

Um yea dumb shit err...I mean kid. That's exactly what I'm saying. You know we are in trouble when the mob doesn't even know what kind of government they have.



Here's an excellent piece on what our government was intended to be and what is is- even though I don't particularly care for the anti-immigration rant.
