Loads of Fertilizer For The Turbine Blades

Most of this is screaming news, the sole purpose of which is to drown out real problems. Let's see what we've got here, and then I'll cite a few problems I think are serious.

Courtesy of NBC News, we get the latest on the Guyger murder and subsequent trial.

Amber Guyger Found Guilty of Murder at Trial In Fatal Shooting of Neighbor Botham Jean

Amber Guyger was found guilty of murder on Tuesday for fatally shooting her neighbor, Botham Jean, after thinking he was an intruder when she mistakenly entered his apartment.

She faces a maximum of life in prison.

The jury was tasked with deciding whether or not Guyger, 31, acted reasonably when she used deadly force, and if the prosecution had proven beyond a reasonable doubt that she intentionally killed Jean or if a lesser charge of manslaughter, which involves reckless conduct, was warranted.
Imagine you're at home, having a cocktail and watching the idiot box.  An unknown dressed in the ubiquitous blue uniform walks into your castle uninvited, screams something vaguely incoherent, and puts two 9mm slugs through your heart.  Now, I don't leave my door unlocked, but I don't wear my pistol while I'm inside my own home.  But let's say I have it next to me, or on me.  I have to realize I'm being invaded, draw against a terrorist that already has his gun drawn, and put a .357 slug into his spine before he puts one to my heart.  I don't think I'm up to it, but I might as well try - I'm dead anyway.

Moving along to Reuters, always a fave of mine in the Moonbat Press, we've got a big win for pornography star Stormy Daniels.

Stormy Daniels Settles Lawsuit Over Arrest at Ohio Strip Club

(Reuters) - Porn star Stormy Daniels has settled a lawsuit against the city of Columbus, Ohio, for $450,000, receiving the payout after she charged that police arrested at a strip club in retaliation for her claim that she had an affair with Donald Trump.

Meredith Tucker, a spokeswoman for the city [of Columbus, OH] attorney’s office, told other media the parties reached a settlement of $450,000 during mediation, an amount that was “fair given the facts and circumstances involved.”
First off, the city government in Columbus is listed in the Moonbat Hall of Infamy as being completely, totally, and incontrovertibly committed to the Lunatic Left. The Columbus Cops work for the city government, which means that they are all officially left handed (while at work, anyway).  Any suggestion that this mess was instigated by the GOP for political reasons is hogwash, believable by those members of government that have been smoking their own mushrooms.

Of course, the Mayor and his cronies are Liberal, and now they look stupid and liberal (how tough is that?) and the city got fined $450 large, so... maybe they've got something there.

Ockham's razor dictates stupidity on the part of the police who set up the sting and made the arrest, and the Mayor's Office who directed operations from mobile command central.  But still, the GOP is pretty smart.  Makes one wonder, doesn't it?

From Fox News we get the latest attack on the President.

Hannity: Democrats 'guilty of nearly every single accusation they are throwing at' Trump

Fox News host Sean Hannity's commentary Monday night took on new relevance as a photo emerged raising questions over former Vice President Joe Biden's involvement in the firing of a Ukrainian  prosecutor, who was investigating a company that employed his son [well, whataya know bout that - MJ].

Hannity argued that the Democrats are trying to impeach President Trump over a "manufactured crisis," while they commit misconduct themselves.

“The great irony here is that once again – it is the Democrats [who] are guilty of nearly every single accusation they are throwing at the president."

Remember: SJWs always lie, and SJWs always double down.  Credit to Vox Day.

In terms some of you can easily understand, have you ever been unjustly accused of infidelity?  You deny it, offer an alibi, but over time the accusations continue until, for no discernible reason, they stop.  Then you find out that someone in your happy home has been unfaithful alright, and it isn't you.

Yeah, like that.  That's an SJW who is doubling down.

Real issues are being drowned out by the screaming and moonbat howling over this non-issue.  The moonbats hope this will carry on through the next election, when their arch enemy will again emerge victorious causing an insurrection.  Not armed, thought, because the Left doesn't believe in guns.

And then we get life on the street, again from Fox:
Phoenix Police Say Driver Killed Man For 'Looking At Him' at Red Light

A man [Mixon - MJ] was killed in March after he “looked over” at another driver at a red light, police in Arizona revealed, saying the suspected killer was arrested this past week.

“Pulling up next to another car and looking over at the driver may seem like a common occurrence, but it now appears to be the motive behind a violent murder,” police said Friday in a news release.

Police made that statement in announcing the arrest Thursday of Nicolas Elliott, 30, on a charge of murder in the March 1 death of 26-year-old Alex Mixon at a Phoenix intersection.

Three people told police they were with Elliott at the time of the shooting and they said Mixon “merely looked over at (Elliott) which in turn enraged (him) to fire his handgun at (Mixon),” the Arizona Republic reported citing court documents.
Three witnesses, and now we're going to have a trial and several appeals, and the dirty son-of-a-bitch will avoid the firing squad.

So if this isn't serious, what is?

Public Education. The little darlings that are most in need of all the education they can get aren't learning to read, let alone comprehend what they read.  In some areas classroom discipline is so bad that the teachers are getting danger pay, and now some districts refuse to expel the worst offenders on the grounds of racial discrimination.  What do we do to correct this?

Take a left wing city, like Chicago.  Get 100 incorrigible cases and send them to a military school in Aardvark Flats, TX.  No phones, plenty of activity.  Discipline is not unreasonable and help is always there - because, quite frankly, these children will not know how to behave.  Their family can come and visit them on Christmas and two other holidays.

When they graduate, show the rest of the U.S. the cost of the school versus the cost of supporting them at home, and the fact that they are no longer criminals.

National Debt. Right now it's about $22 trillion ($22,000,000,000,000), an amount that most people can't imagine.  I certainly can't.  It's getting larger, and at some point it must be paid back.  Here's a clue: I don't think it's going to be paid back this year.  Next year isn't looking good either.

Given that the national debt is getting larger instead of smaller, my real question is, "Where the hell is it all going?"  Because if we knew that, we could cut back on spending in a few areas and maybe the debt would start shrinking.

Ah, if only it 'twere s'-simple.

Disarming the Law Abiding Citizens.  In an effort to curb so-called mass shootings, the incredibly stupid segment of our society seeks to disarm law abiding gun owners. That won't fix the problem, but the elected officials who support this violation of civil rights see one thing and one thing only: Reelection.

Until we get elected officials who make civil rights - all civil rights - their major issue, and are elected, the clock is ticking and it's only a matter of time before my front door is kicked in by a troop of jack booted thugs.

One thing that gives me hope is that some police have stated that they'll never enforce an order to confiscate firearms in a house to house search and seizure operation.  We'll see.

Thoughts? Opinions?

Are you really surprised by any of this? I'm not... Civil War 2.0 is getting closer and closer...

That’s pretty much where I am at too. I’m at the point with the Moonbats where they can either, FOAD, STFU, or start shooting because other than that I want nothing more to do with them.

That was awesome.
A Tour de Force.
I am impressed and depressed, simultaneously.
Sharing to social media, where all 5 of my followers will see it.
