Thanks, We're Good

We'll gladly relinquish the trophy. I've got no more room on my mantle.
Syracuse, N.Y. -- It's like the No. 1 seed getting knocked out in the second round of the tournament.

Syracuse, traditionally America's snowiest big city, has just been upset this season by Lakewood, Colo., thanks to a massive blizzard in the Rockies and Upper Midwest this week. Lakewood now sits atop the Golden Snow Globe contest as the snowiest city this season with at least 100,000 people.

It's a narrow lead: Lakewood has 72.6 inches to Syracuse's 72.2 inches. But Syracuse has no measurable snow in the forecast, and March is the snowiest month of the year in many parts of Colorado.

I'm Gonna Read This ... Nope

So Syracuse Is Gonna Stink In The NCAA's?

My heart meds got quite a workout last night, especially when the half court judge ruled Cooney out of bounds.

Half court judge calls him out while the baseline judge, who actually has the angle and can make the call,is mum. He could have cost SU the game.

Go 'Cuse!

Trump On Brussels

Donald Trump was on Fox News and he had this to say about today's Islamic outrage in Brussels:
Trump spoke only hours after coordinated terrorists bombings killed at least 34 people and wounded more than 130 in Brussels, Belgium.

“It’s going to get worse and worse. In my opinion, this is just the beginning. It will get worse and worse because we are lax and we are foolish — we can’t allow these people, at this point we cannot allow these people to come into our country. I’m sorry,” Trump said, appearing on Fox and Friends. “This is a story that just seems to be more and more happening and it’s really not very pretty to watch.”

[...]“We’re not the victims here — we’re acting like this is our fault,” he said. “That’s the problem with the liberal policies of this country and this world, it’s acting like it’s our fault. It’s not our fault, okay, it’s not our fault. It’s their fault. And they have to come out and they have to say, ‘hey look, this is happening’.”
I am so sick of hearing that it is only a few misguided radials who are perpetrating these atrocities.

It is Islam.
“I will tell you, I’ve been talking about this a long time, and look at Brussels,” Trump said. “Brussels was a beautiful city, a beautiful place with zero crime. And now it’s a disaster city. It’s a total disaster, and we have to be very careful in the United States, we have to be very careful and very vigilant as to who we allow in this country. ”

“If you went into Brussels 20 years ago, it was like a magical city. Now you look at it, it’s an armed camp,” Trump said. “You want to lead your life, you don’t want to be living in an armed camp for your whole life. And there is a certain group of people that is making living a normal life impossible.”
Islam is what it is, a primitive, moon god-worshiping crowd who follow the mutterings of a sex crazed pedophile and kill at the drop of a kufiya. It started out as a band of murderous cut throats who raided caravans and nothing has changed.

Sure, Christendom has had it's moments also. Contrary to scripture, the Catholic Church and Protestants have warred over the centuries. This is what happens when you allow religion to take over government or when government takes over religion.

In Christendom there are many who call themselves Christians but hold truths that are not entirely consistent with each other. There are Catholics, Baptists, Lutherans, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, Pentecostals, Seventh Day Adventists and what have you. But none of them are targeting other churches or blowing up airport terminals and killing unsuspecting innocents. Not. One.

Sure, every now and then a crazy will off a abortion doctor but that is the rare exception, not the rule. There are no institutional Christian associations or organizations that plan mayhem (dancing with snakes is not considered "mayhem"). And the Jesuits have really chilled out over the years. If a Catholic kills his daughter for dating a Presbyterian boy ... well, that doesn't happen. He just isn't invited over during Lent.

But the animosity between Sunni and Shia Muslims is truly breathtaking. It is Islam In Action, a sandbox nightmare brought to you courtesy of Wahhabism and the zakat, the Muslim 2.5% vigorish on all wealth and income which serves to support terrorists all over the world. They are the felafel version of the Hatfields and McCoys with scimitars and beheadings instead of hogs and black powder. And if they treat their cousins in this fashion, what do you think they'll do to infidels?

The Christian tithe serves to support pastors and missionaries, not AK-47's, RPG's and Semtex. A sacrificial life style in obedience to Christ does not include strapping on a suicide vest and wadding into Walmart on Black Friday.

And that is exactly what these maniacs are planning to do in America --- they have already done this all over the world and just did it again in Brussels. I guarantee that somewhere there are Muslims dancing in the streets and praising Allah because of this, this cowardly outrage.

Trump gets it.
Cruz ... I dunno, he says one thing then proposes to double the number of immigrants.

Brussels - ISIS Just Called And They Want Europe Back

You seriously think that the DHS is going to protect us from this? Well, maybe if the terrorists aren't wearing Gucci shoes.

The Muslims just blew the crap out of Brussels. Muslims are just taking up where they left off in 1683.
Cowering under desks and running for their lives, this is the terrifying moment passengers were caught up in an ISIS suicide bomb attack at Brussels Airport today in a series of blasts that have killed at least 34 people and injured 170 across the city.

Witnesses described apocalyptic scenes with blood and 'dismembered bodies everywhere' after two blasts rocked the terminal at around 8am (7am GMT), killing at least 14 people and injuring dozens of others.
Over the centuries Muslims have occupied much of Europe. Charles Martel stopped them in 732 at the Battle of Tours (Tours is only about a 3 or 4 hour ride from the D-Day beaches at Normandy), but there were many more battles to come (846: Muslims invaded and sacked Rome; 849: Battle of Ostia- Muslim invasion of Rome; ninth and tenth centuries, Muslims pillage Sicily and Italy; Sicily would remain under Muslim control for over 250 years). Spain would not finally shake off all vestiges of the Muslim incursion until 1492.

Yeah, 1492. After the fall of Constantinople in 1453 the Muslims stepped up their attacks on Christendom throughout Europe. The 16th century saw more battles, primarily in and around Italy and especially in Malta which had becomes a staging point for European forces.

Slaughter follows Muslim victories like stink follows a broccoli banquet. In Sicily they would kill half the inhabitants of some cities even after promising clemency.

Muslims continued to occupy European countries until the Ottomans were turned back in 1683 at the Battle of Vienna. This was the culmination of 300 years of war between the Ottomans and the Hapsburg dynasties.

What is happening now is just a taste of what will come unless Europe wakes up. And we'd better get serious in a big hurry 'cause ISIS hates us just as much, perhaps even more, than the Europeans.
Then 79 minutes later at 9.19am, at least 20 people were killed and scores injured, some critically, when a blast hit a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre.

At the airport, there were reports of a firefight between police and the attackers who shouted in Arabic moments before detonating their bombs, one of which was understood to contain nails.

An unexploded suicide vest was later found in the rubble and a Kalashnikov rifle beside the body of a dead terrorist. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks.

The blasts, which detonated near a Starbucks and several check-in desks, sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows and knocking roof tiles off the ceiling as terrified passengers ran for their lives.

The explosions, coming just four months after the Paris attacks, have left countries around the world reeling, with security services placed on high alert, flights cancelled, Eurostar services suspended and France's border with Belgium shut down.

Narco Mule Escapes From DHS

The worst part about this story: a narcotics mule transporting sixty pounds of cocaine was in the custody of Homeland Security and got away, no problem. That much cocaine is probably worth about  - well, last summer an off duty Florida cop found fifty pounds of cocaine floating in the Atlantic while fishing; it had a street value of $10 million. Figure about $12 million for sixty.

From NBC:
She left behind 60 pounds of cocaine — and her Gucci shoes.

Investigators are looking for a flight attendant who bolted from Los Angeles International Airport as her carry-on bags — which were loaded with drugs — were about to be inspected, authorities told NBC News.

[...]The woman, who was not identified, appeared nervous and made a cellphone call in a language not recognized by officers, authorities told NBC News. She was then taken aside to a secondary screening area and asked for her employee identification.

Suddenly, she bolted from the screening location, running with her bags toward an escalator, authorities said. She jettisoned the luggage and her designer shoes and fled the terminal.
It amazes me... someone had the goods on this mule and alerted DHS senseless clods who let her get away. I'm sure they'll call DHS again with another hot tip real soon.

Seriously, what kind of planning and preparation (don't even mention SOP and common sense) went into this? No one could catch her in a high risk facility filled with security?  LAX is not a small place; it's not like she scooted through a screen door thirty feet away and into a waiting cab. Did they stop to retrieve her expensive shoes?

And these are the people protecting us from terrorists...

They should all be retrieving shopping carts for Walmart. At least the carts are slow enough and dumb enough for DHS idiots to round them up without too much of a struggle.

Make Sure You Try The Veal, I'm Here Until 2035 *rimshot*

Stand Up Comedy during Bachelorette Game Night
 Hazelton United States Penitentiary, Hazelton, West Virginia.

Bill taking shots at Obugger? Might could be that Hillary is changing her address again. Only one way to make that address 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue instead of a federal prison.

Get Hillary elected at any and all costs.
Bill Clinton is either losing it, or he’s ramping up his attacks on President Obama. Neither is good news for Hillary Clinton.

During a speech in Spokane, Washington on Monday, Clinton seemed to tear down Obama to boost his wife.
Might could be that Billy Jeff is also getting worried about his part in a few doubtful transactions too, as in Clinton Foundation funds and expensive juvenile schtupping trips for ex-President Happy Pants.
But if you believe we can all rise together, if you believe we’ve finally come to the point where we can put the awful legacy of the last eight years behind us and the 7 years before that when we were practicing trickle-down economics and no regulation in Washington, which is what caused the crash, then you should vote for her,” Clinton said.
This could get real interesting as the desperation levels in Clinton's Presidential campaign mount and Billy Jeff's dementia kicks in.
