Sex offender break in and how to handle it.

September 30, 2008

Indiana Father kills sex offender who brok into his home. 

Police responding to a call from the city’s northwest side about 3:20 a.m. found 64-year-old Robert McNally on the hallway floor with his arm around the neck of 52-year-old David T. Meyers, who was pronounced dead at the scene.

I still say the SOB got off easy.

No bail out. Yes Im pissing in the wind

September 28, 2008

Update: Perhaps a slight respite.  Bail out fails as the House votes it down.  Not that this is over.

So after thinking about this bail out situation a bit longer I still say no to the bail out. First off I have yet to hear anyone who can say what will happen if there is no bail out. I hear how money will tighten and this is bad. But is it? I mean isn’t loose money the reason for this bail out? There will be no liquidity. Humm. The basis of credit is that by investing (loaning) someone money that they in turn make into more money where you then get more back in interest. Do you think even in a tight market a good plan won’t get funded?

The other thing that bothers me is the fact that we all must once again pay for the excesses of others. Hey you can’t afford a house too damn bad. If your a bank that loaned to someone that couldn’t afford the house again too damn bad. A business gets the money to start yet has no real business plan and that’s my fault how? The right to fail must be put back into the system folks.

We continue to hear how bad the economy is yet I went to dinner Friday night and there was a line out the door. It could have been any restaurant in this or nearly any other city in the US. The parking lot is full of new cars and SUVs. Everyone is running around with IPODs and paying $300 to $400 dollars for XBOXes and Playstations. Crises? I don’t see it. How many people do you know that own a $1500 or more flat screen HD TV? Yes there are a lot of homes for sale but with asking prices way out of line with their value.

What we have is not a financial crises but a crises in poor judgment.

We already see the political wrangling going on with this bail out and if you think it will be passed without benefiting a bunch of thieves think again.

Nope I want to see more failure in America. I was to see more personal responsibility and you won’t get that by bailing anyone out.

George Will said today roughly that once we asked government to behave like families and balance a budget instead families started acting like government and spending what they didn’t have. Not an exact quote but you get the picture. He is absolutely right.

When anything is artificially propped up it will create a bubble. Lets stop propping thieves up and start asking people to buy what they can afford.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with taking risks. There is something wrong with asking others to pay for your risk when they fail.

Anyway my two cents.

Update:  lets add 25B for the automakers.

Who’s going to pay MY house off.  Maybe I should just quit paying on it.

Crises crises everywhere. Or not

September 26, 2008

I hope to have more thoughts on the Banking crises that has wall street shaking and a Bail out once again for those that can’t run their businesses.

For now I’ll just say NO BAIL OUT.  Let it all crash if that’s what will  happen.  I’m not convince that will in fact happen.   I realize I say this from a position of relative safety.  Well financial safety so I want to take some time (that I don’t currently have) this weekend and go into more detail on why we may not want a bail out.

Womens poem, mans poems

September 23, 2008

I recieved this and well it’s…. interesting.

WOMAN’S POEM: 
  
Before I lay me down to
sleep, 
I pray for a man, who’s not a
creep, 
One who’s handsome, smart and
strong. 
One who loves to listen
long, 
One who thinks before he
speaks, 
One who’ll call, not wait for
weeks. 
I pray he’s gainfully
employed, 
When I spend his cash, won’t be
annoyed. 
Pulls out my chair and opens my
door. 
Massages my back and begs to do
more. 
Oh! Send me a man who’ll make
love to my mind, 
Knows what to answer to ‘how
big is my behind?’ 
I pray that this man will love
me to no end, 
And always be my very best
friend. 
  
 
A MANS POEM 
  
I pray for a deaf-mute gymnast
nymphomaniac with 
huge boobs who owns a bar on a
golf course, 
and loves to send me fishing
and drinking. This 
doesn’t rhyme and I don’t give
a shit.

 

Update: comment   Yes we are that simple..

Shiara law in the UK or WTF is wrong with GB

September 15, 2008

ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.

Have they lost their minds in the UK?  Well we’ve always heard of the fall of the west.  Perhaps this is the beginning.

Zombies have me intrigued

September 14, 2008

You know in the last few years the topic of Zombies have made a comeback. You see numerous books on Zombie preparedness. But really a good NRA member is always prepared for Zombies. You see the best way to kill a zombie is a bullet through the brain. Who can do that? Well shooters. So really the biggest thing to have in your Zombie prep kit is a couple of weapons and lots of ammo. I would get two of the same caliber rifles and two same caliber pistols. Now I’ll admit I’m ill prepared and I have a .45 cal and a 9 mm. Yeah pretty unprepared but hey. I can carry lots of both if necessary.

The thing is if you have weapons and ammo then really your prepared for just about any kind of emergency as you can acquire more food or water with… well your multiple weapons and ammo.

So the lesson folks is buy weapons and ammo. It will carry you through.

(yes tongue is in cheek here folks don’t get nervous just get out of my way)

A little more like it. Raiders 23 Chiefs 8

September 14, 2008

Ok now they play good. Jeeze nothing on the line with this for me. Still no word on what I have to wear for the Broncos game but plenty have volunteered everything from shirts to coffee mugs.

Update: San Diego just got F*****. Bad calls just gave the Broncos the win. I think I need to trip a Bronco fan… just kidding.

Chavez a little wacky

September 13, 2008

Hugo Chavez says the US and especially the CIA is trying to topple him.  If so we are not doing a good job. I mean it’s not like we couldn’t.  We don’t need to topple Hugo but we should concentrate on a little self promotion now and then and stop letting the tyrants of the world run the news cycle.  If the media would report on the actual situation in Latin America and Venezuela in particular instead of just repeating the talking points of people like Hugo we might not need to worry about what an unstable ass like this will do.

This could be another long season. Raiders 14 Broncos 41

September 9, 2008

Well after a pretty sh**y pre-season the Raiders have come out swinging.  Unfortunately last night it was a swing and a miss.  I’m pretty sure I bet someone that if the Broncos won I’d wear some Bronco paraphanalia for a day (maybe they wont’ remember).  This is gonna hurt.

Presidential Campaigns

September 8, 2008

What if candidates were not allowed to campaign but could only publish their position on issues, thier plan for their term, and their resume.  How much nicer that would be.  We have now a system where people make a living on the campaign itself.  This can’t be good.  We will never have any real campaign reform because frankly too many jobs depend on them now. 

Why is Sara Palin popular.  Well we haven’t had 4 years of her campaign to digest.  It’s fresh but still I don’t care about 90% of what’s being said about her either.  What she will do is all I want to know.  It’s all I want to know about any of them.  Yet with our campaign process they all avoid giving any real answers because they will spend too much time defending the answer.  There is really no need to defend.  State your postition and let it ride.  But I’m just day dreaming.
