Things that surprise no-one

Well, hell. I said to Uncle B that the Austin bomber was probably going to be a young white guy. It just fit the crime, you know? And so it turned out to be. I would have thought he would have more of an obviously ‘troubled past’, but it’s early days yet.

It’s a young white guy kind of crime. It saddens me, but it’s true.

Also in the ‘Things That Should Surprise No-one’ file, does anybody expect anybody to reject Trump because he slept with a porn star and a Playboy bunny? The dudebros who love him will think the whole thing is alpha as fuck.

And conservatives have known all along he’s not one of them. He’s a crass and vulgar man, duh. But what was anyone supposed to do? At least he’s not a pervert (guys who bed legendarily attractive women may be hounds, but they aren’t bent) and he’s less weak and weird than 95% of the people scrabbling for high office in my lifetime.

If “grab them by the pussy” didn’t do it, this is the weakest gotcha ever.

The picture is what turned up on a Google Images search for “surprise stoat.” It leads to an article about surveillance footage of a weasel on a trampoline. Follow it. You won’t be sorry.

It was in Hwd, they “let you grab them by the pussy” and he was 100% correct.

For the record, I have no idea why he wd want to bomb people. Obviously, he was suicidal which is another mystery. Pretty young to get so bent.

@EnglishTreasure
462 yrs ago OTD 21st Mar 1556, Thomas Cranmer from Aslockton, Nottm, the former Archbishop of Canterbury was burned at the stake outside Balliol College in Oxford. He was an Archbishop for 22 years and led the English Reformation during the reigns of Henry VIII and Edward VI.

101 yrs old today. On 20th Mar 1917, singer and icon of Englishness, Dame Vera Lynn DBE was born in East Ham, London. Her recordings & live performances were hugely popular during WWII. She is still referred to as ‘The Forces Sweetheart.’

He has some interesting OTD stuff posted including a photo of Henry IV’s tomb which I had never seen before. Very colorful. And for the record, burning people to death is one of the most horrible things anyone can do to another human being or animal. Disgusting.

Wow. Reading about the kidnapping attempt of Princess Anne in 1974. I was laughing bc the assailant used a Ford Escort but then read that 4 people were shot!

I get “this webpage not available” at Scarborough news. I tried their main page, same result. And I really need to see a weasel on a trampoline just now.

I have a sort of guess-the-criminal rule of thumb – Blacks rape and rob; Whites are serial killers and do crazy shit…. but it takes an Asian if the shit is really weird. For example there was a case in Japan where a guy cut the head off a little boy and left it on the steps of an elementary school …with a rose in the mouth.

As for Trump, I have several humphing and puffing Democrat friends who tell me that Trump’s morals make him unfit to be our leader. One is also convinced that Trump will be impeached. He’s an attorney so one would like to think he’s educated and intelligent. For me, such attitudes are simply a reminder that the media still has tremendous power to cloud men’s minds. I have come to realize that these same folks hated Reagan, both Bushes, Sarah Paplin, and Romney for reasons they can barely articulate.

I make no attempts any more to change their minds; it’s pointless. However at the same time I don’t believe that Trump will lose any supporters over these attacks. Bill Clinton set the standard for sex scandals and that standard is “don’t matter none to me”. I think that eventually the whole sex scandal angle will die of exhaustion. “Me Too” has already become old news.

So let’s watch the weasels dance and the Hell with the rest of it.

I had a friend who was very smart in the biological sciences but was otherwise a lefty cop hating loon. There was a sad story of a kids pool b-day party where a little boy disappeared. The cops rushed over, set up a command post, went door to door, visited every sex offender in the area and found nothing. Three days later, a female officer was at the house and went out to the pool and was just standing there trying to think where this kid had gone. She then noticed a body at the bottom of the pool. The pool had needed to be repainted. All the kicking of the kids caused the already chipping paint to become suspended in the water, creating an illusion of a false bottom. The boy had gotten in trouble and sunk below this false bottom and no one had seen him drown. It took 3 days for the micro paint chips to settle & the water to clear. My friend was convinced the cops were to blame, that they purposely did not see the boy — ignoring the fact that one, there were at least a hundred people there that did not see him and two, why wd the cops intentionally not see him? He was just nuts about it.

After endless “none of our businesses” and “Moveon! Moveon!”
and b*j*’s “aren’t sex” they got what they wanted and we nearly ended up with Felonia Von Pantsuit as President because of it.
So they can stick their self righteous moralizing about fitness for office where the sun don’t shine. They changed the rules, now they can live with em.

The weird white kid – was supposedly concerned about sex offenders and crimes they committed when they were wee little sex offending minors…let’s face it, that’s rather an odd obsession for a 24 year old guy who is supposedly not a sex offender IMHO.
Not a churchgoin kinda fella myself, but I love how the MSM doesn’t quite get that a guy who puts package bombs on people’s doorsteps and blows em to hell is not a devout Christian, no matter what anyone, including he himself, says.

I was surprised to discover that “trampoline” is also a verb.

Cute weasel.

There was one of a red fox playing on a snow covered trampoline the other day.

I’ve concluded the difference between them and us is they don’t film themselves having fun.
And they don’t get drunk and try backflips resulting in injury.

I loved all the video. The television advertisement was very well done. I knew foxes would play, but I had no idea that a badger would, too 😉

Some Veg said:So let’s watch the weasels dance and the Hell with the rest of it.

The perfect motto for these times, cuz the weasels change daily!

It’s very amusing to watch the media and tut-tutting sexual scolds/lefties aim at Trump and hit Billy Jeff…every time. They still don’t get it; we don’t care about any of this crap. It’s weird that they persist when they’ve spent the last fifty years telling us it doesn’t matter.

The only fact that matters to me is that Hillary Clinton is not President.

They are impressive statistics. A very interesting article. Thank you.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
