Life Imitates The Hangover Movies

Where was Zach (Alan) Galifianakis was late last year?
From the Leicester Mercury: A man who woke up after a night out in Leicester with the tip of his finger missing and blood pouring down his hand is desperate to know what happened to him.
Dwayne Thompson, 26, went out for a meal with friends in Leicester city centre and says he cannot remember anything after taking a picture in the restaurant at 10.30pm...
Mr Thompson said: “I remember the whole night until that point. I had a three course meal, couple of drinks.
“It’s a big step from a meal to where I was

Mark Levin's New TV Show: Who Is The Real Levin?

Mark Levin is a loud bombastic and intelligent national conservative radio talk show host.
He is also an accomplished lawyer and started his own online TV channel, CRTV.
On Sunday night he debuted on Fox News with the show "Life Liberty and Levin".
He had Walter Williams, a black libertarian, a noted and prolific author and intellectual.
As far as content goes, the show was very good.
But when you have intellectuals as the guest and host, well, the staying awake factor was pretty low.
As a listener to Levin's show, it is hard to listen where it is loud, rude at times and fast paced and then to watch his TV which is much slower, measured and not funny.
So, who is the real Mark Levin? The loud, funny and bombastic Mark Levin or the quiet, measured and serious Mark Levin?
My guess is the latter.

And We Are Supposed To Take You Seriously?

I'm sure they were serious but I thought this was pretty funny.
Protesters chanting "cows lives matter" in front of steaks, roasts and ground chuck were kicked out of an East Side supermarket Saturday, the same store they protested in last Thanksgiving over turkeys.
The mini-demonstration happened at Festival Foods, 810 E. Washington Ave., Madison police said.
The protesters, one playing a guitar, loudly chanted "murder" and "cows lives matter" while filling the aisle in front of the meat display.
The store manager said the protest prevented customers from making purchases, so she told the animal rights activists she was calling police," said police spokesman Joel DeSpain. 
Having lived in Madison for about 8 years this doesn't surprise me.
This reminds me of the movie "Life of Brian" by Monty Python where a bumbling group of Jews try to overthrow the Roman's who had invaded their land. 
The bumbling group actually gets into to the Roman's castle and then didn't know what to do and many ran away or were killed.
Which happened in Madison. As soon of the threat of the cops being called they ran away. Not much belief in their cause of  the cows.  At least they could have been arrested for their cause but they probably had to go get high instead.

School Shootings: Why Everyone Is Wrong

After the latest school shooting, this time in Florida, we have heard from the anti-conservative crowd, the pro-gun crowd, the concealed carry crowd and just about every position under the sun.
And they are all wrong.
The anti-conservative crowd says to get rid of all guns or guns of a certain size and make of gun.  This comes from the same people who say deporting several million people is impossible because there are too many illegals.  If the can't get rid of say, 10,000,000 how are they going to find and dispose 10 times 10,000,000, especially since guns are harder to find than an actual person?
Then you have those who say to arm school employees to the max.
Unless those school employees who armed are never named, whose names are highly top secret, this plan won't work because the shooter thugs will just go where the Armed employees are not or they will take out the armed employees first.
So, what to do?
The "average" school begins and ends in less than 6 minutes, the reality is that if there is a shooting, it will end quickly, there is not a lot you can do once the bullets start flying.
So, what can you do before the shots are flying?
I used to be a teacher in high schools both in very poor schools, middle class schools and well to do schools with a majority of my time in schools that can be easily classified as ghetto schhols... not by race but by poverty and crime rates.
And these types of ghetto schools rarely have mass shootings. Perhaps a targeted shooting but not mass shootings.
How do these high crime schools be this safe from mass shootings?
First, they make the schools into fortresses. Doors are locked so no one can get into a school without people knowing and watching.
Visitors do not go past the school office, if they are allowed inside.
They treat everyone as suspects. Students, former students, family members of students and staff.
The schools get rid of bad and violent students through expulsion.
There is a heavy police presence at the schools and around the schools.
School radios in each classroom so they report suspicious activity or something going on in or around a teachers classroom.
These are some things high crime schools do to protect their school and students from mass shootings.
But most schools will not want to do these suggestions because it makes their school look bad and their kids are angels and would never dream of killing their fellow students.
And the parents of students in these "higher class" would never allow these solutions because these parents never would have the school to treat their "angel" to be treated with disrespect, per the parents view of things.
And yes, there are plenty of blame to around in the Florida shooting with the majority of the blame to the school's administration and the parents of the school.
Finally, this is not a federal issue. It is a local school and school district and parent issue.  They, the parents, administration and district administration, run the the schools, not the federal or state government.
These ideas I put forth will work but they won't be implemented by the snowflaketeachers administration and snowflake parents.

Tragedy In Florida

A major school shooting has occurred in Parkland, Florida with about 7 people killed.
From the U.K. Daily Mail:  A suspected gunman has been arrested after opening fire on a Florida high school, leaving as many as seven dead and up to 50 injured.
The 'heavily armed' shooter, named by police sources to as former student Nicolas de Jesus Cruz, 19, entered Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, armed with what appears to be an assault rifle, and began shooting at just after 2pm.
least 14 victims' although he did not specify whether they had been injured or killed. Florida Senator Bill Nelson told Fox News there were 'many deaths'.
Sources told CBS at least seven people had been confirmed dead. 
Students barricaded themselves into their classrooms, while others were seen running out of the building with their hands in their air as police and SWAT teams swarmed the school. Those fleeing the school, in single file, each threw their backpack into a large pile and huddled together under trees across the street. 
At around 4pm, two hours after the shooter first opened fire, police and SWAT teams took him into custody. Police describe him as a student and a former member of the U.S. Army Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program.
I cannot imagine the horror the families are going through.
May God bless those involved and prayers to the families, friends, first responders and school employees.
Update: The murderer is named Nicholas Cruz.  He is under arrest and with no apparent injuries. He was not a student at the school.
My guess is that the number of people killed is going to be higher than the 7 being reported.
12 people were killed in the school, 2 just outside the school 1 close to the school and 2 died in the hospitals.
The suspect was taken to the hospital and now is being transferred to the Broward County jail with about a 10 vehicle convoy.
The thug apparently has a fascination with guns.
Per Fox News, he had some kind of relationship with a Syrian resistance group.
Fox News is reporting there is at least 16 people killed.
Update 2: The sheriff now says 17 people have died.
The thug shooter is 19 years old and had been expelled from the school.

Holy Crap, That's Ugly

Ex-president Obama and wife, Michelle Obama had their official portrait released.
Both Obamas are good looking people but their portraits are just hideous.
I am no expert in art but I can tell the difference between good art and bad and these portraits are bad.

Lion Eats Poacher

Ain't karma a bitch sometimes?
From the UK Daily Mail:  
A big cat poacher has been killed and eaten by the pride of lions he was hunting at a private game reserve in South Africa.
The hunter was heard screaming for help as he was attacked at the Ingwelala Private Nature Reserve in Hoedspruit outside Phalaborwa.
But the lions quickly killed their victim and devoured most of his body before being chased off, leaving his head untouched....
The incident comes just months after poacher Luteni Muhararukua was charged and killed by a rhino he was hunting for its horn in nearby Namibia. 
The lion probably didn't eat the head due to the fact that there was nothing inside the skull except some moldy brain cells.
Good for the lion

Trump Is Right Again

Today, President Trump tweeted this about the horrible health care in the UK: 

"The Democrats are pushing for Universal HealthCare while thousands of people are marching in the UK because their U system is going broke and not working. Dems want to greatly raise taxes for really bad and non-personal medical care. No thanks!"
And as usual the liberals here and the UK were in the attack mode saying Trump was full of crap or worse. The unions and the socialized medicine executives ripped on Trump saying the UK has a great health care systems.
I am a fan of the Premier Soccer League and I having been reading the newspapers in many of these cities like London, Manchester, Leicester, Huddersfield, Nottingham and other towns and have read about the crappie health care system THE UK has.
But here's some facts about the UK NHS that have come out recently:

Hospitals had to cancel tens of thousands of surgeries because they didn't have the hospitals.
At times, patient have to wait 2 or more hours in an ambulance who are parked outside the emergency room before they even get into the ER.
Recently, a doctor was criminally negligent and caused the death of a young child. The NHS basically fired her and pulled he doctor license. The doctors union said union defended the doctor by saying that the hospital system was broken, the doctor was over worked, their IT system was broken, the doctor had too many patients and several other excuses. At last check, the doctor is still a former doctor after criminally killed a child.
There are long waits for basic services. Some patients have to wait several months for things like x-rays and lab work. There have been several news stories where some patients have died waiting for basic services.
There have been stories about the shortage of medicines and supplies.
And the list goes on.
President Trump was right again and as usual, the Trump haters were wrong...again.

Another Sadly Day In Colorado

Yesterday, and El Paso deputy sheriff was murdered by a thug in Colorado Springs.
From the Gazette: An El Paso County sheriff's deputy was shot to death, and two more deputies and a Colorado Springs police officer were wounded during a stolen car investigation Monday afternoon, Police Chief Pete Carey said Monday night.

Killed was Deputy Micah Flick, 34, who is survived by his wife and 7-year-old twins, Sheriff Bill Elder announced.

Flick was slain on the 11th anniversary of his employment at the Sheriff's Office.

The suspected shooter was killed, Carey said. His identity was not released. No other suspects are being sought.
This is the 3rd Colorado police officer/deputy killed since 12/31/17.  These murders of the officers have left wives, young kids, parents and friends mourning their lost love ones.
No has mentioned it in the news but just wonder if any of murderous thugs had a problem with pot, especially since pot is legal in Colorado.
RIP to the officers and prayers to their families, friends and the Blue family.

The Future Of Las Vegas?

From The Cape Argus, Cape Town South Africa: Cape Town has managed to reduce its collective daily consumption of water to 547 million litres, still 97 million litres more than the Level 6b restrictions target of 450 million litres, but enough to stave off the dreaded Day Zero.
Day Zero is when most of the taps in the city would be shut off in a bid to conserve the bare minimum amount of water in the Mother City's dwindling supply dams.
Day Zero has been moved further back to mid-May 2018.
Prior to the anouncement by the City of Cape Town, there were just 71 days remaining on the countdown.
"Day Zero, the day we may have to start queueing for water, is expected to move out to mid-May 2018 due to a decline in agricultural usage," deputy mayor Ian Nielson said.
"But Capetonians must continue reducing consumption if we are to avoid Day Zero. There has not been any significant decline in urban usage. All Capetonians must therefore continue to use no more than 50 litres per person per day to help stretch our dwindling supplies."  
Las Vegas gets its water from Lake Mead, a large lake fed by the Colorado River and is by the Hoover Damond.
And Lake Mead is running out of water due to the drought, mismanagement and the increase of the population in the Las Vegas valley.
Las Vegas continues to build large apartment complexes, housing communities and businesses.  In addition, the Clark County and Las Vegas governmentshould encourage illegal aliens to move to Las Vegas and the Vegas has one of the highest numbers of illegals living in the Valley than almost any other area in the country.
Some estimates suggest Vegas could be out of water by 2036.  
So, Vegas, keep an eye on Cape Town, it's your future.

I Call BS

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel run a sob story about an illegal Mexican alien who got deported from the U.S. back to Mexico and I call BS on the story.
From jsonline:  Standing outside his new home sloped on a bumpy street, Jorge Garcia turns his head and gazes down the block of a working-class city about an hour west of Mexico City....
Two weeks earlier, Garcia was deported from Michigan to Mexico after living in the U.S. for 30 years, forced to leave behind his family, friends, and a solid job in landscaping.  Now, the married father of two finds himself alone in an unfamiliar country, with an uncertain future...
After the Free Press reported on his deportation on Jan. 15, Garcia became a symbol for immigrant advocates who say his removal is an example of the government's overzealous crackdown on illegal immigrants. He was only 10 years old when an aunt brought him to the U.S. without authorization. Now 39, he had lived his entire adult life in the U.S. before his removal.
Garcia has no criminal record, but the U.S. now says that anyone without legal status can be removed. ICE has defended his deportation....
Since 2005, the Garcias have been fighting for Jorge to obtain legal status, spending more than $100,000 on attorneys and  fees. The couple says that one of their previous attorneys had filed the wrong paperwork and Jorge was ordered removed in 2009, but he was repeatedly allowed stays of deportation until November 2017.
I am sure it's not easy for Mr. Garcia.
But let's see now, he wasted 29 years by not getting citizenship.
And he paid lawyers $100,000 to get some kind of legal status.
I call BS.
My ex-wife came to the U.S. legally and we got her citizenship legally within 3 years and we paid a lawyer $5000 to process the paperwork.
If he paid $100,000 to a lawyer there was something very serious with his application that he, his family and/or the newspaper is not telling us, especially since he was married to a U.S. citizen with kids.
The problem with these so called Dreamers that want amnesty without going through the proper process of getting citizenship.  I have no problem if these Dreamers have made an effort to get citizenship by filling out the paperwork, sitting down for the interviewso and paying the fees.
But most of the Dreamers don't want to do this.
So, no amnesty for Dreamers and deport them and their parents if they refuse to even try to get legal citizenship, just like the millions before them who did follow the correct process.

Illegal Alien Kills NFL Player

Another illegal alien and possible dreamer from Mexico kills another 2 innocent people.
Build the wall and kick out the dreamers
From ESPN: Colts linebacker Edwin Jackson was killed early Sunday morning after being hit by a suspected drunken driver along the side of Interstate 70 in Indianapolis, according to the Indiana State Police Department.
Jackson and another person, Jeffery Monroe of Avon, were stopped along the side of I-70 when Monroe, who was believed to be a ride-sharing operator driving Jackson, got out of the car to help Jackson, who was sick. The driver of a Ford F-150 drove onto the emergency shoulder and hit the rear of the car, striking both Jackson and Monroe, with one of the bodies landing in the center lane of I-70, according to a release from the Indiana State Police....
Alex Cabrera Gonsales, 37, of Indianapolis, was arrested after trying to flee the scene on foot, according to the Indiana State Police. Gonsales was driving without a license and was believed to be intoxicated, according to police.

Did He Really Do That?

Watching the Super Bowl half time show with some guy named Justin Timberlake.
I don't know his songs because he's not my type of singer.
He did a duet with the dead singer from Minneapolis, Prince.
The last line of the song they sang "I'll die for you".
Really? Prince died for me/us?
I thought he died of a drug overdose, accidentally.
He never said he died for mankind.
Instead have missed that in the news.

If I Were To Bet The Super Bowl....

This will be the first time watching the Super Bowl since 2011 when the Green Bay Packers won the Super Bowl. (Because I usually worked at part time jobs)
If I were to bet I would bet the following:
New England to win straight up.
New England covers the point spread of 4.5.
I would bet the under of 47 points.
That's what I would do but then I suck when betting sports.

Update: And this why I don't bet sports in Vegas.
But I am glad Philly won because their coach, Doug Peterson is a former Packer and quarterback Nick Files is going to be a preacher when he retires.

Another Packer Goes Into The Hall Of Fame

Jerry Kramer, an offensive guard for the Green Bay Packers was just elected to the football Hall of Fame.
From the Green Bay Press Gazette: 
Jerry Kramer finally made it.
In his 11th time as a finalist, the former Green Bay Packers guard was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.
Kramer, 82, becomes the 13th member of the Packers’ dynasty in the 1960s to be voted into the Hall. The others are coach Vince Lombardi, fullback Jim Taylor, tackle Forrest Gregg, quarterback Bart Starr, linebacker Ray Nitschke, cornerback Herb Adderley, defensive end Willie Davis, center Jim Ringo, running back Paul Hornung, safety Willie Wood, defensive tackle Henry Jordan and linebacker Dave Robinson.
Kramer also is the 25th Hall inductee who spent most of his career with the Packers. That’s second most in league  history, behind the Chicago Bears’27.
Also voted into the Hall on Saturday were Ray Lewis, Brian Urlacher, Randy Moss, Brian Dawkins, Terrell Owens, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard.
I'm old enough to remember watching him play and watch him in the Ice Bowl when Bart Starr took a quarterback sneak and scored the winning touchdown against the Dallas Cowboys.

More Misconduct By The Department of "Justice?"

Today we learned that the U.S. Justice department was anti-Trump.  Just shocking, I tell you.
But really it's not that surprising and as usual, the talking heads are missing the bigger picture.
The DOJ has been found guilty or just screwing other conservatives under the Obama administration.
Just recently, Clive Bundy and family in Las Vegas, had their charges dropped due misconduct.  The Bundys were on trial for protesting the Feds taking their cows and an armed standoff occurred.  But because of the Fed's Misconduct the judge dropped the charges.
And there are other cases out there where the Obama DOJ harassed conservativestalwarts and ignored wrong doing by liberals and misconduct in the Obama administration.
This memo today just confirms that President Obama was the most corrupt president ever.
