Ouch! My Wrist!

8 Jan

This cool dude, last seen relaxing on TV in the United States Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi’s, chair, his foot comfortably propped upon her desk, takes a load off after having just broken into the United States Capitol Building… along with thousands of other hoodlums, thugs and gangbangers. (That is what you call a group of like minded, similarly dressed, gun toting doers of dirty deeds done dirt cheap…isn’t it?)

His name is Richard Barnett, 60, of Arkansas and he was arrested today and charged with “entering and remaining on restricted grounds, (Really? Gee officer, this guy entered my house and then…remained!) violent entry, and theft of public property”.

Lucky for him I guess. I don’t know what the potential penalties are for those crimes (if found guilty?) but he sure is fortunate that he wasn’t charged with “selling cigarettes illegally” or “not having his driver’s license” or “walking across the street in a lazy and unsteady manner”.

He should also thank God that he wasn’t “possibly under the influence of alcohol” or that he hadn’t just been accused of “passing a forged check”. And he can thank his lucky stars that he was dressed so appropriately when he committed these “Capitol” crimes and was not “wearing a dark hoody with hood deployed”.

And if someone, say a law enforcement officer, had gotten word that he might have been “carrying a gun” or had recently been seen “disturbing the peace” or “charging or menacing” some other police officer… he could really have gotten in trouble!

And he is equally quite fortuitous to be a citizen of the United States (although I really can’t tell without having seen his ID) who possess such an affable smile, ease of manner and unthreatening countenance… as opposed to not having those attributes.

And why is that?

Because in some cities, towns and boroughs in the United States of America all of those things are punishable by the death penalty!…Immediately and on the spot!

But don’t worry about Mr. Barnett… I’m sure you’ll be seeing him on interview shows and Go Fund Me sites soon!

Some guys just have all the luck!

                                                        Which #s Belong Where?

     I have to thank another blogger (thanks INSIGHTFUL) for this idea but I have restructured some of her post in the form of a quiz just for fun. We all love America. This is where I have lived all my life… and very happily I might add. I have some complaints but who doesn’t. I’m quite sure that no place is perfect but I also must admit that I have never lived anywhere else so I am ignorant of what life is like in other places. In education though, we like to test and measure and create teams and have competitions so it is only fair that when thinking about our country we should also be willing to hold our accomplishments up to others and see how we stand.

     Are we (the U.S) more like the Superbowl champs in this category or that category or more like the…you know…the team on the other side of the river? (Actually on the same side of the river and in the same stadium!) Why don’t they just start calling them the NJ Jets for crying out loud and get it over with?! But I digress…

      In this quiz you get the following numbers and have to place them in the boxes next to the appropriate category rating the United States’ standing in the world compared to other countries. Here are your numbers.

(15, 16, 27, 30, 31, 33, 35, 37, and three 1’s)

(Look for the answers in my next post and see how smart you are and how successful the U.S. is in each category… If you root for the NJ Jets then your rating abilities are probably pretty screwed up anyway)
