Ignorance Is Burning Your Own City Down In Support Of A Criminal

I have a high school education, military technical training, and over half of century of life experience and absolutely no understanding of how burning and looting your city have any impact on "justice" for a dead criminal.

The more this happens, the more ignorant the reactions appear. With a very few exceptions, no one has died that didn't instigate the whole process by first being a criminal and then further their own demise by refusing to cooperate with the response to their criminal activity, regardless of race. I.e., following law enforcement directives which resulted from that criminal activity.

Don't act like a thug and you won't die like a thug. This includes rioting and looting in response to a thug's injury or death. Breaking the law has consequences. Breaking more laws in response to criminal activity makes less sense than the original offense. You aren't expediting justice. You are perpetrating ignorance. Burning down and/or looting your neighborhood makes you as criminally guilty as the thug for which you claim to be requiring justice. And makes you appear more ignorant and uneducated.

Don't commit acts which will draw the attention of law enforcement and law enforcement won't interact. It IS that simple. No one has died that didn't instigate the involvement of LEO by their own actions. Don't live as a criminal, don't die a criminal.

Not Only Is It Cold In Northeast Ohio...

...but, Hell may have frozen over.

I have a Twitter account. Yep I have zipped into the 21st Century kicking and screaming all the way. O.K, grumbling and sneering is closer to the truth. I still think that 99% of the twitosphere is garbage, much like the blogosphere, but it has it's uses. I suppose.

My view of Twitter was always, "What the fuck?! NOBODY needs to be that connected. There is so much garbage on there, who needs that? Well, nobody needs it. Nobody. But, a new local talk show started this month by a local host on a Cleveland radio station and the primary communication to the show is through Twitter. And I wanted to be able to contribute my 2 cents occasionally.

So, I'll not be some major contributor (Tweeter?) to the ubiquitous Tweetscape but, I will occasionally Tweet (sorta like I occasionally blog) when the mood strikes.

I have yet to register my cell phone to Twitter as I currently receive enough bullshit calls to it w/o inviting even more opportunities for the spammeister fucks to bombard me even more. Fucking telemarketers ruin everything, don't they?

So, if you are so inclined to send this twit a tweet, you can do so @DanOinOhio.

Cheers all, and until next time, SEE ya.

I'll Show You How To Walk The Dog

Briskly! When it's 5F(ucking) degrees out. Foster dog is spoiled. When overnight or daytime temps are below 25F I let him inside. Which means taking him out every few hours to let him turn the snow yellow & brown and to remind him why I'm letting him stay inside when his testicles shrivel.

Doing this chore after drinking straight bourbon for 3 hours is some what of a challenge on the ice and snow. I've so far managed to stay on my feet, but I imagine it 's a AFV moment for any neighbors who may happen to peer out their windows at just the right moment.

On the weekend especially, I like to make the last bourbon ballet as late as possible to allow me the luxury of sleeping in before the morning excursion out in the frigid frontier.

I will be strongly recommending a return to rightful owner before the next season of sub-freezing temps. I prefer to remain inside myself on such cold nights. I'm too old for this shit.

Having Fun In Public or Why It's Fun To Be Me

Mrs. Dan O and I were at Sam's Club one night last week and there was a wares hawker at the end of the lotions & potions aisle.

She came up to us, greeted us, then said, "Put your wrist out."

Mrs. Dan O told her not if it had anything to do with perfume because she has asthma & allergies. The lady said "No nothing like that.", but then looked at me and said "How about you, will you stick your wrist out?"

I asked warily, looking suspiciously around behind her, "Why do you have handcuffs?"
She smiled, let out a little laugh and said, "No. I don't have any handcuffs."

I replied, "Then what fun is that?" and walked away.

DeflateGate; SOTU;DOJ/FBI on Ferguson

DeflateGate: Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?! This bullshit dominated the airwaves this week. Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?! Who fucking cares about football air pressures? Not even an interesting diversion from the real serious things that should be talked about. I wouldn't know Tom Brady from a dog turd on the sidewalk, Bill No-Personality Belichick means nothing to me. Ban them both from the Super Bowl for all I care. Or don't. Football air pressure? SERIOUSLY?! Fuck!

SOTU: Are. You. Fucking. Kidding. Me?! Anyone who still cares what the Piece-of-Shit in-Chief has to say is a fucking bigger idiot than Obama himself. The son of a bitch is the dumbest educated fuck on the planet. Why someone hasn't...never mind, I won't finish that thought. At least not in print.

The DOJ/FBI on Ferguson: If you needed yet another autopsy and investigation to conclude the same as the previous 2 (3?), you are as stupid and ignorant as that fucking waste of flesh Al Not-So-Sharpton.  Fuck him and fuck you.

How am I doing so far? The top 3 stories this whole week were nonsense. Pure, fucking, ignorant nonsense.

Mean while, in Cleveland, police officers shot at while investigating violent aggravated burglary and took suspects into custody barely made LOCAL news. Never mind national news. Why? Because only the suspects fired their weapons. AT the police. And the police DIDN'T fire back. So, that's not news.

At The Risk Of Beating A Dead Horse

I have no sympathy for dead thugs. Mikey "St. Swisher Sweets" Brown; " I can't Breathe" Garner; et al, are dead because they were criminals that refused to submit to police and caused their own deaths. Period.

If you are too stupid, closed-minded or racist to understand that, I don't give a shit.

No matter how minor your initial crime or how innocent you are or believe yourself to be, if you resist arrest and/or disobey simple directives of police officers and/or brandish any weapon or perceived weapon towards a police officer, YOU are responsible for any resulting injury, up to and including death.

Skin color, ethnicity or any other real or imagined bias is irrelevant.

I am no blind-faith supporter of police. But, I have no problem with them defending themselves and the law-abiding public against ignorant, dangerous thugs who believe they don't have to follow the law.
