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...

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.

Missing: Civilized Society, Reward Offered For It's Return- The Sunday Collage

It's been a tough couple of weeks for me. Since the end of April, I've needed a root canal but my dentist could not see me until May 9. When the pain became unbearable, I went to a different dentist. He assured me that he could do the root canal in an hour. That was last Wednesday. Since then, the entire right side of my face is swollen and getting worse. My new dentist is nowhere to be found. Only with the help of a dwindling Vicodin supply am I going to make it to Monday. I'll probably need to schedule a drug rehab visit shortly after they fix this tooth.

Right after the grand root canal on Wednesday, I settled in to watch and follow the Benghazi inquiry. Unlike the vast majority of Americans who watch shows like "The Voice",  I find amoral and criminal conduct with falsified and outlandishly conceived cover ups, far more interesting. So that's where I spend my time.

During the week, I found myself fully engaged in my new Vicodin addiction, playing golf, (I knocked in a 40 footer for birdie on the last hole while completely under the influence of Vicodin on Thursday) and reading and listening to a lot of Benghazi testimony and reports. To summarize the 30 or so pieces and clips that I have viewed, I found the actions of this administration not only to be simply scandalous but criminally neglectful up to such point- that one might say that Hillary Clinton had Christopher Stevens executed through non perfomance of her basic job functions.

I also monitored places like Huffington Post and noticed that they had virtually nothing to say about Benghazi. They posted an article or two at the bottom of the home page that said that this administration had made some "mistakes." (Obama went to bed and then golfing fundraising the next day in Vegas just before that stoned debate performance of his in Colorado) For Huffpo, that level of minimization and understatement would be akin to Ted Bundy saying that a number of his first dates did not result in committed relationships.

Now reading and viewing virtually everything you can get your hands on for a solid week is precisely the amount of information one needs in order to be ridiculed and abused by some leftist smart ass in his grandmother's basement who is collecting unemployment, playing video games, and lying about looking for work. If anyone ever invents a device that immediately allows you to find an anonymous commenter's name and address, I might sell my house to get one. Twenty thousand comments written by one smart ass?

My favorite poster of the week and I am so sooorrryyy that I didn't clip and save this...was the commentor who said that Benghazi was Christopher Stevens fault. He knew taking that job was risky. The comment had been "favorited" many times.

Victimizing the victim is only acceptable when a liberal does it. Staying with our Bundy metaphor, Ted would have crafted a defense that said that his murder victims brought their murder upon themselves. They should have known the risks of dressing up, looking nice, and being female. Therefore they had not been murdered but had committed suicide just like Stevens had.

I find myself, somehow for several months now, asking "What the fuck is wrong with people?" How sick does our society have to get before somebody pushes the "ENOUGH" button?

I remember a rich, dope smoking, atheist, liberal gal in Moonbat Valley telling me once- that people who wear guns should not be surprised when one of their kind gets killed. She of course was referring to my law enforcement profession. You know what I was thinking? Why in the hell would I die protecting someone like her? That's exactly what I was thinking as she was speaking. In fact, that mentality is precisely the reason I will never return to law enforcement or to Moonbat Valley. I'd rather get run over by a freight train trying to rescue an armadillo.

So let me explain what I think has happened to our country. It started long ago.

In the mid- 1980's, President Reagan loved to talk about eroding family values. He saw it as a crisis. I did not but as I look back, I think Reagan had it right. In fact he may have understated it. Here is a quote from a 1986 Reagan radio address. Please pay attention to those values he finds most important and specifically submits in this paragraph...

That last word, "family," is one that I'd like to consider for a moment. To be sure, family is very much on our minds during the holidays, as children and grandchildren, parents and grandparents, gather to share the happiness of the season. We know how good it feels to be with our families—how it warms and comforts us, how it gives us strength and joy. But I wonder whether we always give our families all the appreciation they deserve. Consider, for example, that the philosopher-historians Will and Ariel Durant called the family "the nucleus of civilization." They understood that all those aspects of civilized life that we most deeply cherish—freedom, the rule of law, economic prosperity and opportunity—that all these depend upon the strength and integrity of the family. If you think about it, you'll see that it's in the family that we must all learn the fundamental lesson of life—right and wrong, respect for others, self-discipline, the importance of knowledge, and, yes, a sense of our own self-worth. All of our lives, it's the love of our families that sustains us when times are hard. And it is perhaps above all to provide for our children that we work and save.

Reagan was talking about "civilized life." He referred to the family as the nucleus of civilization. He talked about freedom and the rule of law- and the fundamental lessons of life. Teaching right and wrong, respect for others, self discipline, and knowledge.

What we are seeing today is a crisis of leadership. Our leaders are self absorbed and selfish politicians. They would rather get some sleep or protect their chances of winning some future nomination rather than perform the fundamental job requirements of the positions they currently hold. They can't adequately perform in their current roles- while aspiring for bigger ones.

Civilized people do not go to bed or refuse requests for help when American ambassadors are being attacked and subsequently killed. Civilized people perform their jobs. When they cannot fulfill the duties of their job, they resign. Like the U.S. Secretary of State did after his failure in Mogadishu (Blackhawk Down) that cost many American lives. Civilized people feel shame. Civilized people must live with themselves when their actions or inactions get innocent people killed. Civilized people are not sociopaths. Civilized people, and this will come as a shock, take responsibility for their actions.

The level of shamelessness and arrogance that this administration engages in is reprehensible. It should be met with the harshest punishment that civilized people can mete out.

The media and the left sycophants have no shame either. They are still busy living in the past- still blaming Bush every time something bad happens some 5 years later- like somehow that justifies the actions of Obama and his morally bankrupt staff. I suppose that is the "Johnny did it first!" argument that children use when defending themselves from their angry parents. They will defend, ridicule, or otherwise attack anyone trying to attach responsibility to those who are responsible for this shameful event.

Civilized people know the difference between wrong and right. Civilized people do not make excuses. Civilized people take responsibility for their horrible job performance and they do not blame the victims for the crime. They practice respect for others and self discipline.

Civilized people do not let this happen. (Note the date and the opening paragraph where Susan Rice's lie about that idiot filmmaker is used in this story)(Graphic)http://www.mediaite.com/online/new-images-appear-to-show-ambassador-stevens-after-attack-on-libya-embassy-graphic/

I get angry every time I see that photo. Not because the photographer says rescuers were trying to help or whatever they are doing with his dead body. We know they mutilated his body and cut off his genitals. I get mad because Chris Stevens is dead and that death was completely un neccessary. Chris Stevens was a decent, civilized human being that could not have known he was working under the direction of sociopaths. They held his life in their hands and they didn't even have the decency to let a SOG (special op group already mobilized and departing) team go help. I get mad because good, civilized people die and it is always the sociopaths that live on.

I keep hoping that the rational, civilized people that I know we once had in the U.S.- will form some collective voice and restore order to what used to be- a civilized society. Absent civilized conduct, all we have left is the selfishness and chaos brought about by our prideful and shameless "leaders."

Reagan didn't predict this- he saw this. It's turning out to be a remarkably astute observation.

Maybe the best piece I have read all week on Benghazi. Along the same lines. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/347980/benghazi-lie/page/0/1
