And now, no internet

My internet connection went down less than an hour ago. It is a conspiracy!!!!!! LOL

The tech can’t come till tomorrow in the afternoon so I’ll be mostly 20th century.

Good thing I downloaded the WordPress app and at least I can do a mini post from time to time.

So, see ya when I see ya.

I landed in Facebook Jail.

I have been accused, tried and convicted on Hate Speech charges. Sentence is a 24 hour block.

Apparently this video is bad, very bad.

I barely recall sharing the darned thing. Something about Feminism and whatnots, but what called my attention was the incongruity of what the moron was saying, what was being displayed in the shirt and the fact that he is a man (more or less or at least in a basic biological matter.) So I shared the video, I was not even the original poster.

I can still read my timeline, but not allowed to post. So you guys in FB get a break from me and can insult me without evil returning replies for another 22.5 hours or so.

UPDATE: I am also blocked in the Facebook page of the Blog. Sneaky bastards, ain’t them?

Pelosi gets the Cuban American Treatment in Miami.

Your side called for increased confrontation, you got it. How does it feel to be “collateral”? I think they ruined her latest botox treatment.

In other times, I would have disagreed and even criticized the crowd. But not anymore.  We can’t risk that our epitaph be “They were polite all the way to the mass grave.”

 


Update:

 

 

 

Tough guy only goes after widows but takes off at clear and present beat up. (Language Warning – loud)

Remember the asshole in Portland that verbally abused the widow?  It seems that in the best of Jesse Ventura’s tradition, he was a real tough guy only against her.

The Blue Tide is somehow acquiring a nice shade of brown and leaving a streak.

Post-Disaster Time and Human Management.

Callaway resident Victoria Smith told the News Herald that thieves came into her townhome while she and her four children were sleeping with the front door open to allow a breeze inside.
“I must’ve been so exhausted from everything in the past days I didn’t even hear them come in,” Smith said. “They just snatched my purse out of my hands and ran. … It was all we had.”

Powerless Victims of Hurricane Michael Now Suffer Looting

It is only natural that right after a major situation, our need to be aware and in control of things is exacerbated and we simply do not allow ourselves to rest. I pulled something like this back when I was younger and we had a little three-day social dislocation in Venezuela with generalized looting and killing. I survived three days with lots of coffee, cigarettes and the occasional 30 minute lap. The end result was me being a walking zombie on the fourth day and on the fourth day driving into a small military action because I was so asleep, I did not recognize that the lack of traffic meant something was going down rather than the original “Hey! I am lucky, there is nobody out here, the road is all mine!”

I have been blessed with a wife that smart and will take no crap from incoming looters. She understands the idea that we need to work shifts and that asleep must be enforced in more than just catnaps. That is the way it has worked since we moved to Florida and faced being out of power with the forced need to have our house wide open in order to cool off some. Our sleep cycles also help: She is an early night sleeper, I can’t sleep till very late. That means somebody is always awake and making our presence felt which helps dissuade some (not all ) individuals or groups with evil intentions in their hearts.

As for the “infamous” You Loot-We Shoot signs:

I agree with their use but ONLY if you have the means and the will to enforce the message. Do not think they are some magic wand that will ward you off from all evil. Some of the bastards looting went through our public educational system and that makes their reading comprehension skills suspicious and a big chance they ignore the sign. Other simply won’t give a damn and think you are bluffing so you better be ready to engage them with your “Royal Flush.”

If something shows at its best (or worst) the principle of partnership, is the immediate time after a disaster. It is amazing how easier things go hen you can rely on somebody who know what needs to be done and allows you to take a much-needed rest. Lone Wolves tend not fare well.
