Virtual Tours Of A New Place Ain’t The Same As A Real Visit

leave a comment »

My local newspaper yesterday told the story of this Montana family that purchased a $33,000 house in the Shittsburgh area based solely on Internet photographs. Surprise, surprise, when they actually got to this residence, the place was filthy, falling apart and had devices like the water heater in unusable condition. I could understand perhaps moving to an area out of state and relying on Internet pictures for a rental property that required no advance deposits; that’s what we did when we moved to Ohio, and everything turned out fine and dandy. However, there’s no way in hell I’m purchasing any property without at least going to the actual site and looking over the area once with my own eyes.

Bringing A Knife To A Gun Fight

leave a comment »

Man I can’t wait until my morning RIGHT-WING RADIO guy I listen to returns from vacation on Monday because I know what will be one of the first things he talks about:

Two victims of a knife-wielding grocery store employee remained hospitalized Saturday after the man attacked eight co-workers and was finally stopped by a witness who pulled a gun, authorities said.

This guy was chasing another person with a knife when a guy named Chris Cope grabbed a gun from his truck and subdued the attacker. However, my favorite quote came from this Sergeant who said of Cope:

We commend him, but we don’t encourage people to take that kind of risk. He could have been hurt.

FUCK YOU buddy. If I have some guy chasing me around a parking lot with a big-ass knife, I don’t want to wait until the police arrive onto the scene; I want a Second Amendment advocate to show my attacker the benefits of concealed firearms.

Better Way To Go: Drowning or OD’ing?

leave a comment »

When Hurricane Katrina hit, some in the medical profession decided to play God and started offing some of their more serious-case patients when they determined there was no way to escape and that a morphine overdose is a better way to go out than drowning. And you know what? As of this moment I’m siding with the medical professionals. I can’t even begin to comprehend what these people were going through and they were probably doing what they thought was best for the moment. Who is to say any of us would have acted any differently? Hell, most of us would have probably high-tailed it out of there long ago. Did these people exercise the best judgment in this situation? Maybe. Maybe not. I’m not going to play armchair quarterback in this case, though. Too bad ass-clowns like John Murtha don’t exercise the same restraint when commenting on events like Haditha.
