B00MER S00NER, y’all!
Thought for the Day
Do you realize that if the #UCC students in Oregon had not bitterly clung to their religion, they would be alive today?
And yet, these are the very people that our President looks down upon.
“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.”
There you have it: Obama says, give up your religion and you get to live.
“For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?” Mat 16:26
I couldn’t help but remember another shooting on October 1st, in Pearl MS. Stopped by a good guy with a gun. (Originally posted 12/17/12).
UPDATE: I noticed that Yahoo Search shows the #UCC occuring on 9/30/15. Here is the screengrab: Just a quick FYI for my fellow conspiracy theorists.
On October 1, 1997 at Pearl High School in Pearl, MS, 16-year-old Luke Woodham killed two students and injured seven others. Before the shooting at began, Woodham stabbed his mother to death in their home as she was about to begin her morning jog. The shootings shocked the country. It was said many times, if this can happen in Pearl, it can happen anywhere. Unfortunately, over the years, this statement has proven to be true.
The shootings at Pearl High School was the first of the modern-day rash of school shootings.
But it could have been much worse. But for the actions of vice-principal Joel Myrick, and the grace of God, it would have been.
The moment Joel Myrick heard shots, he ran to his pickup truck, removed his Colt .45 from its case, removed ammo from another case, loaded his gun and went looking for the killer. He could have confronted Woodham much sooner, but for the fact that Federal law prohibits anyone but a police officer from having a gun in or near a school. “I’ve always kept a gun in the truck just in case something like this ever happened,” said Myrick.
By the time he confronted the Woodham, 2 students were murdered, and 7 others were wounded. Woodham was trying to make his get-away to the nearby Middle School to continue the carnage. Woodham’s lever-action 30-30 is an effective deer rifle. But it takes time to chamber each round, point, aim and fire. Precious time. Time that Joel Myrick could have used to stop the shootings, but for gun laws.
Myrick foiled Woodham’s plan. He saw the killer fleeing and positioned himself. Woodham, seeing the gun pointed at his head, crashed the car. Myrick approached the killer and confronted him. “Here was this monster killing kids in my school, and the minute I put a gun to his head he was a kid again,” Myrick said.
Myrick’s actions stopped the shootings and saved lives. But the MSM doesn’t talk much about him, do they? President Obama says it’s time to have some gun control talk. Well, OK. Let’s just remember to talk about Joel Myrick.
Over at Zero Hedge, a preview of this weekend’s referendum on Catalonian independence from Spain.
The 27 September election in Catalonia, which accounts for ~19% of Spanish GDP – matters. First, the pro-independence movement has transformed the election into a de-facto referendum on Catalonia’s independence – an attempt to bypass the Constitution. Second, the result of the regional election could have a bearing on the December national election.
The pro-independence parties The centre-right Convergence of Catalonia (CDC) joined forces with left-wing Catalan Republic Left (ERC) and other Catalan associations. They will run under a pro-independence joint list: Junts pel Si (Together for Yes). Junts pel Si pledges to declare unilaterally the independence of Catalonia from Spain in about 18 months if they win the election and if the secession negotiations with the central government fail.
The pro independence parties come from a very heterogeneous political spectrum. This is not a positive. In our view, a Catalan government supported by CDC, ERC and CUP would have only the pro-independence battle to keep it standing. Hence, the leaders of such a government will likely continue on the pro-independence path not only out of conviction on its feasibility but because of lack of alternatives.
Sunday is also the date of the Blood Moon Prophecies.
“There’s a sense in the world that things are changing and God is trying to communicate with us in a supernatural way,” Pastor (John) Hagee added. “I believe that in these next two years, we’re going to see something dramatic happen in the Middle East involving Israel that will change the course of history in the Middle East and impact the whole world.”
The popular American preacher recently narrated the Four Blood Moons: Something is About to Change, a film created to coincide with the fourth blood moon. The movie was based on Hagee’s book on the topic, the Times of Israel reports.
The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and the terrible day of the LORD come. Joel 2:31
And, just as I was feeling better about Martin Armstrong kicking the 2015.75 economic forecast out to the year 2033 ….
But all that occurs on Sunday.
On Saturday, we’ve got some bidness to take care of. Namely, the Red River Shootout, and the Auburn Game.
I think sometimes that my blog podnah hates the Texas Longwhorns as much as I hate the Auburn Tigers. Frankly though, I just don’t think that’s possible.
Sooners 44, Longwhorns 14
Bulldogs 42, Tigers 35
I read Donald Trump’s position paper on the Second Amendment yesterday. If you haven’t seen it yet, here is a LINK. The most salient point he makes is right up front, where it should be:
The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon. Period.
Here is a suggestion for the Trump Campaign… (if you dare).
Do a remake of the William Shatner/Denny Crane mugging scene with Trump in the lead role, and a Yeb Bush lookalike in the secondary role. Tell me this wouldn’t make a great commercial!
That the worst governor in Mississippi’s history has earned the ignomy of becoming the worst Secretary of the Navy in the history of the Republic, is no surprise to anyone who has watched the public career of Ray Mabus.
As the Marine Corps Times reported earlier this week, “In the all-volunteer study, the men consistently outperformed the women in speed and accuracy, while female Marines were injured at more than double the rate of their male counterparts.”
Mabus criticized the report saying it was not relevant, and rushed ahead with his decision to open up EVERY Navy and Marine position to women, some 8 days before the deadline set by the Secretary of Defense, and even before Marine Corps Commandant Dunford had made any recommendations to Mabus.
Everyone familiar with Mabus is not surprised. He is a complete turd. A waste of oxygen. A zit on the ass of humanity. An opportunity missed by Planned Parenthood.
