My turn to get patted down and scrutinized. I head back to the States today, after a long absence. I do not look forward to the flight.
Here, to take up the time until I am reunited with my internet signal, are a few links.
TSA agent drugged up Reader and contributer Ari Schwartz sent this story. “A TSA agent was arrested on January 3rd in Terminal One at LAX, a source told NBCLA. He had just gotten off duty and was behaving erratically, saying, ‘I am god, I’m in charge.'” Makes you feel safer, does it not? Shenanigans like this might be why this guy at the Washington Post says we should eliminate the TSA.
Put the fear of PIG in terrorists My number-one son pointed me to this site. It advertises a special kind of gun lubricant.
SILVER BULLET GUN OIL, is a HIGHLY EFFECTIVE Counter-Islamic terrorist force multiplier…HOW does SILVER BULLET GUN OIL work? SILVER BULLET GUN OIL CONTAINS 13% USDA LIQUEFIED PIG FAT. The PIG FAT is mixed with our blended, hi-grade WEAPONS OIL designed for use in ALL FIREARMS.
The PIG FAT is transferred to anything the BULLETS STRIKE. The coating of OIL CONTAINING PIG FAT effectively DENIES entry to Allah’s Paradise to any Islamo-Fascist terrorist KIA with a bullet coming from a firearm using SILVER BULLET GUN OIL in the barrel. SILVER BULLET GUN OIL uses the belief system of Allah’s Islamo-Fascist terrorists to put fear of death into them, a fear they haven’t had until NOW.
Hard to argue with logic like that.
Mike Adams is a columnist at Town Hall. He writes mostly on matters academic, but from a rightward perspective. A conservative (tenured, of course) professor willing to speak his mind is a novelty these days, and he should be read for that reason alone. Here’s a quote from a piece on student who was defending his thesis.
During the course of describing one particular bridge the student stated that not all of its characteristics were artistic. Some of its characteristics were “essential” to the basic functioning of the bridge. The professor directing his thesis objected to the use of the term “essential.” In fact, she said the term “frightened” her.
He sent tenured terrorist Bill Ayers an NRA membership as a Christmas present.
Annals of Uselessness They are remaking—I wish I were making this up—True Grit! If you can find it, read Mike Royko’s review of the movie. I was going to say, “the original movie”—God help us all! The review is here (you’ll have to scroll intelligently for it).
I never went to a John Wayne movie to find a philosophy to live by to absorb a profound message. I went for the simple pleasure of spending a couple of hours watching the bad guys lose.
