Terrorismists

ISIS has a problem and it’s not what you think. They aren’t being sought out and destroyed with extreme prejudice. They aren’t being adulated by the world as some almighty threat that needs intense scrutiny and attention. They’ve been marginalized and given dirty looks. Ladies and Gentlemen, they have an inferiority complex and we gave it to them. They want to be treated like a dangerous world power. They want the respect a recognized state would receive when pulling such villainous shenanigans.  They want war, but they just get a talking to and lots of inaction. I think we should give them the satisfaction of getting what they want. Face it, they’re not going to stop. You know how they are. And all these stern denouncements on TV are just firing them up. I can hear them now. For all intents and purposes, Pinky and the Brain are ISIS:

“How many did we kill, Pinky?”

“reports say about 45 right now, Brain”

“What have the Americans said?”

“Stop doing that”

failed-doggy-dna-experiment

WWPATBD? An acronym for what would Pinky and the Brain do. The same thing they always do, try again tomorrow. The motivation doesn’t go away and is hardly weakened by world efforts to quash the persistent acts of war waged on the universe. I’m not mistaken, give them space ships and they will attack aliens. They are the frustrated bunch and you’d think we (USA) would be. But there is seemingly nothing they can do that will make us spring into action like the super power we are… or at least used to be. Perhaps one day soon we won’t take their shit anymore. We don’t even hurt them in any way. In fact, we help them by meddling with the power structure of other nations that have in the past helped to check these militant groups and prevented them from spreading like wildfire. They fight on, we move our military further away from them. It’s actual insanity. We have a few choices and the sooner the US figures it out, the better. We either fight them here or we fight them there. We either bounce around the world cleaning up after they inflict mass casualties or we wipe them out, immediately. I’d pick the proactive route.  Currently, we do nothing. You can impose sanctions on an unrecognized state, but they won’t recognize them. They are not a conventional organization so why do we consider conventional methods of dealing with them? It’s wobbly moral ground we stand on, not wanting to attack them for fear of the innocents. What are the people they attack? Guilty of living?  I could go on and on about how we’ve perpetuated their existence and extended their longevity but that would take ages. The problem right now is that we are not giving them the attention they crave and deserve. They need our military’s attention in a bad way and I say we give it to them.

Police Kill Man In East Fishkill, NY: Dutchess County

dutchess

This is going to teeter between pissing you off and calming you down.


It’s being reported that there was a long stand-off and that John J. Terzani was in the midst of a tumultuous divorce when police failed to subdue him, resulting in a fatal shooting. I wouldn’t have used the term “failed”, it casts a negative light on our very effective State Police force. Also, I am saying “tumultuous”. The Poughkeepsie Journal is saying “amicable”.

Poughkeepsie Journal

This happened near Carpenter Hill Road in East Fishkill. A road that I grew up driving down and still pass by now and again. There is no mention of a hostage situation. That leads me to believe that there was no “hostage situation” because that is a trigger term that spurs mass interest, and it would have been readily sported for media attention. So here is my issue. Several shots were fired from a .223-caliber rifle. 5, if you believe what witnesses heard. That could look like this:

m7615

or this:

90280_XM-15_HBBL

Or several other guns.

After he was shot, they tried to save his life. Are the officers trained to shoot these weapons not capable of disabling a man with precise, painful, cripplingly accurate shots to the shoulder, arm, or leg? No disrespect to the New York State Police. I know officers in the East Fishkill and State Police forces, they have a job to do and one dangerous man’s life is less important than the safety of an entire community. I don’t mean for this to be controversial, but this isn’t the first time I have thought to myself that the perpetrator could have been severely wounded and immobilized as opposed to being killed. I would be more of a shoot him in the leg, then tell him to put the gun down sort of person… which is part of what is wrong with me.  I wasn’t there, I don’t know what happened. Right now there is a man that has to live with the fact that he killed someone that has a family, parents, loved ones, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. Why? He was obligated to. People are killed every day in a hail of bullets. How many of those instances would have been remedied by one disabling, non-lethal gun shot? I have no clue. I’d like to say all of them, but that would be impossible. I suppose I don’t really have a point here. Another tragedy and it wasn’t senseless. It’s simply very confusing. The intensity of perilous moments is deafening. Real life does not often mirror a Hollywood cop drama, but sometimes you wish it could. Is there another level of training that would include the ability to disable a person without killing them? Is it affordable and realistic? I do not know.

Another good job by the police in NY, they should be commended. Unfortunately, that doesn’t prevent August 20, 2013 from being a sad day.

30 Seconds To Mars: The Kill

Lack Of Guilt: Still The Killer, G. Zimmerman

Sometimes you just have to be found not guilty because anything less would be uncivilized.

rightguard

If ever there was a lackluster prosecution, we’ve just witnessed it (again) in The People of the State of Florida vs. George Zimmerman.(State of Florida vs. Casey Marie Anthony, case in point). Another overzealous prosecution team doing their best to double-down on the Florida Justice System’s inexpedience. And I just can’t wait for the next one. The next high-profile, outrage inducing wonderfuck of a circus court case. It’s bound to happen, we’ll all be watching.

I’ll spare us the details. The proliferance of a sensational murder case can’t be contained and unfortunately, the exertion of its influence is not limited to everyone but the DA’s office. The District Attorney’s office is definitely swayed by the magnitude of public outrage. What that means is that they overreached again. They were emboldened by community aggression and used that fuel to charge Zimmerman with murder 2 instead of the far more appropriate manslaughter or accidental homicide. Pan down, they were scared to go for anything else. They are scared of public outrage. Not shockingly, the prosecution has just tabled manslaughter as a charge the jury can consider in their deliberations, and, with an incalculable amount of audacity, they made a bid for felony murder based on CHILD ABUSE. The latter was denied. Queue Herbert Morrison.

Oh the humanity.

They just admitted that they haven’t hammered home the murder 2 case.

Judge Debra Nelson lost the plot yesterday and showed a marked lack of composure and a hot head. Flexing her muscles for no apparent reason at all and coming off unweaned if you ask me. The old gal must know that her time in the national eye is winding down. Give us a show Deb, by any means. If I were a gambling man, I might bet that you have swayed from the middle before closing statements have even been made. You professional, you.

Sorry, Your Honor.

If George Zimmerman does not get time served and walk out into the guaranteed rage parade waiting outside, then the country has been served a great injustice. A porous case by the prosecution substantiated by an imbecilic star witness. If you are in fact innocent of a crime and a case is brought up against you that in any way mirrors the case brought against George Zimmerman, you have to feel confident that justice will be served and that you will be cleared. If you are found guilty of any crime by the will of such shoddy prosecution… all hope is lost for all of mankind.

If you think that I am on Team Zimmerman, I’m not. The evidence against him simply isn’t damning. He shot the kid and he died. He could have kneecapped him or shot him in the shoulder, but he didn’t.  Trayvon got caught out there. He was a young kid that was extremely unlucky, but not by his own saintly accord. When you get up to no good or live life a certain way, you should not be alarmed at the consequences. No matter how severe they may be. Truth be told, had Martin not been skipping through a gated community at night, he would not be dead right now. Had Zimmerman not been carrying a gun and playing superhero, Martin would not be dead right now. But those two things did happen. They happened at the exact same moment in time and at the same exact geographic location. You can’t redeal those cards. Zimmerman is no hardened criminal; you can look at him and tell. He didn’t plan on murdering anyone. But that is how it went down. Without aggression there would have been no drawing of the gun. There was plenty of aggression. If you can’t acknowledge that Zimmerman seems like a dweeb by nature and that Martin was a seemingly aggressive youth, you are letting your emotions run the rule over you. Without emotion this case stands on the wobbliest set of legs that ever remained standing. With emotion, anger and outrage beckons you to make Zimmerman pay the speculative price.

With a clear head and on middle ground, you just can’t convict Zimmerman of murder. If he loses this case, he’ll win on appeal. The most the State of Florida will get out of George Zimmerman is a few years. The least and most likely amount of time seems to be time served. I’m not in the business of being wrong, but I’m also not scared to be. Either way the gavel hits, there are no winners here. Godspeed.

Still Smokin’ : Bikini Military

Apparently there are loads of beautiful women in the many militaries of the world. I am here to prove it, but first I must put it out there that I have a predisposition to love these Israeli soldiers:

Biden Hears The Call Of Duty?

Biden Seeks Video Game Industry Input on Guns – ABC News.

Is this the most conservative-friendly, reasonably-rationalised idea Joe Biden has ever had?

Well, you might bet the farm that Biden would want to just lambaste the gaming industry and try to put them in a (nonviolent) submission hold. But he seems to be acting very reasonably. Will he come out of these meetings carrying a duffle bag full of PS3 games and unreleased testers? Maybe. Will he walk into said meetings with guns blazing?

Biden

Absolutely. Biden can’t pass up on an opportunity to make people squirm.

Love him or hate him, he makes politics fun.

I personally don’t play video games, they lost me when the controllers started putting more than 3 buttons into play. These modern controllers are just too complicated for me, and I need to warn people… humans evolve to keep up, don’t be alarmed when children are born with four arms so they can game more prolifically.

I have no problem with violent video games, they are no worse than R movies and cable dramas. If someone is impressionable enough to confuse the gaming world with reality… that is another problem all together.

Notice the blood shower.

Folks, here is how you sense trouble. If your child sees that clip and cringes or screams “ewwwwww”, you are in business. You’ve got yourself a solid little trooper on your hands, ready to take on the violence of life with a grain of salt.

If your child laughs hysterically and screams “do it again!!!”, pray to whatever power you believe in. Consider enlisting herds of puppies and kittens to soften your child’s ice cold stare that you know you have been ignoring, then bring them to Disney Land… for a year.
