Fayetteville captures their suspect

It only took 11 days, but they’ve got him.

(Suspect) is accused of shooting (Victim) several times on Oct. 14 on the 1300 block of Camden Road, MacRoberts said.

And you just know he’s a great guy!

Suspect

Or not.

Assault Weapons cause home invasion!

I’m sure that it was the fault of the “Assault Weapons” involved.

Police said that about 6:30 p.m. Oct. 18, (Suspect 1) and (Suspect 2) forced their way into a home at 2811 Dexter Ave., threatened the people inside with assault rifles and made away with $150.

It has to be the guns. Otherwise we might have to blame the poor deluded choirboys behind the guns.

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

I’m sure that they were just getting their lives together after a youth spent hanging around with the wrong crowd. If it hadn’t been for those “Assault Weapons” they would have made it to church that day instead of robbing that family.

Suspects caught in Chicken Bridge murder

It’s taken some time, but the Chatham County Sheriffs Office has caught their suspects

Deputies charged two Orange County men Tuesday with the murder of a woman found Oct. 10 near Chicken Bridge in northern Chatham County.

(Suspect 1), 24, and (Suspect 2), 25, both of 3400 Carl Durham Road, Chapel Hill, were charged with first-degree murder.

And what sort of people do the Chatham Sheriffs Office think did this?

Suspect 1

Suspect 2

One was released from prison a 21 months ago and the other was still on post release supervision having only been released in May.

Someone took a knife to a spear fight

Sometimes the jokes just write themselves.

Police charged that a 60-year-old Four Oaks resident threatened to use a spear in order to steal another man’s knife.

Police spokeswoman Laura Horrigan said the incident took place in the 3100 block of Stonybrook Drive in an area where there are woods and homeless people sometimes congregate.

The suspect has a very minor prior record from quite a while ago.

When spears are outlawed only outlaws will have spears.

The kids are all right

Oh what a bunch of sad pandas the faculty of NC State University must be right now. All that expensive indoctrination going to waste.

A recent survey of North Carolina State University students and faculty shows a huge political divide between faculty and the student body.

44 percent of students who responded to The Pack Poll said they would vote for Mitt Romney, 42 percent prefer Barack Obama, and the rest remain undecided or prefer another candidate. The margin of error is +/- 2.98 percent.

81 percent of faculty members, however, said they would vote Obama, compared to 15 percent who favor Romney. The margin of error is +/- 6.1 percent.

Even scarier, from the faculty’s point of view is the horribly racist opinion of the students that Voter ID is a good idea.

57 percent of students support a requirement that voters show photo ID; 22 percent are in opposition 

 Ouch. The Liberal indoctrination is failing.

Here’s a good plan, let’s give “educators” more power to suppress dissent!

Sometimes I just want to slap the stupid out of Republican legislators. You sometimes get the impression that they don’t really think things through.

It will soon be illegal for a student to bully a teacher online in North Carolina, under an expansion of the state’s cyberbullying law that goes into effect Dec. 1 and may be the first of its kind in the country.

The School Violence Prevention Act of 2012 will make it a misdemeanor for students to post something online “with the intent to intimidate or torment a school employee.” It builds on a similar law passed in 2009 that criminalized online bullying of a student or a student’s parent or guardian.

Mark my words, this “Cyberbullying” law will be used to attack parents and activists who oppose the state run education monopoly. Anyone who commits the thought crime of criticising how their child’s school is run will at least be threatened with a second degree misdemeanor, so many of them will just shut up. We all know teachers. They aren’t interested in truth, they just want the children to sit down, shut up, and complete their assigned workbook pages.

Was that Cyberbullying?

Kidnapping and beating a woman

What sort of person thinks that this is appropriate?

A Wilmington man was arrested Saturday morning, charged with kidnapping and beating a woman on South Seventh Street, according to police.

(Suspect), 36, was booked into the New Hanover County jail on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping, interference with emergency communications, assault on a female and injury to personal property.

Snatching up a woman off the street and beating the hell out of her doesn’t sound like a starter crime.

Suspect

And it wasn’t. Read the whole criminal record. It just keeps going and going.

Criminals aren’t like you and me. They don’t see others as worthy of respect, so they feel perfectly comfortable abusing others.

Michelle Dockery Monday: Michelle is available!

I haven’t pried to deeply into Michelle Dockery’s personal life. The only time I heard anything about her love life she was living with an architect in London and she kept him out of the public eye. Sounded cool to me.

Well I apparently missed the memo about that relationship being over. She started dating someone else and now that’s over too.

Michelle began dating Joseph after her three year relationship with Trent Davis ended.

A source added to the newspaper: ‘Michelle was really sad when it didn’t work out with Trent. She really believed the relationship would go the distance and thought there was a chance they would get married. But it wasn’t to be.

‘All of her friends were shocked when she and Trent split. She starting dating Joseph, but called it off after a few months. She wasn’t ready for a new relationship.’

Well that sucks, Michelle. If you need a place to crash while you sort your love life out, that offer of a guest bedroom is still open.

PS. Michelle, your publicist sucks. I’m still not receiving any promotional photos of you. I’m not going to steal copyrighted photos from other websites and post them. That’s just a douche move. If your publicist is willing to make sure that your failed relationship ends up in the major tabloids, at least get me some photos to post.

There are two things about you that are your big draw. One, obviously, is that you are very attractive. Second, your voice. Neither one works well in print so have your publicist send some photos. Better yet, come visit. We can make a video of me teaching you how to shoot. Proper firearms training would be very valuable in your future movie career.

What were you going to do with that gun?

Another day, another home invasion, this one in Greensboro. Two got arrested, the inside man and the getaway driver.

When police came to the house, they found that the intruder entered the home through the rear of the house. They found that the suspect was also hiding — in a closet.

The suspect, (Suspect 1), 20, of Greensboro, was charged with felony breaking-and-entering, larceny, larceny after breaking-and-entering, larceny of a firearm and possession of a firearm by a felon. He was jailed under a $75,000 bond.

I can’t tell from the story if they charged him with larceny of a firearm for stealing the firearm in that house, or if it was a gun stolen from a previous robbery and carried into this house.

Suspect 1

The getaway driver appears to have a clean record. I’d personally have rather the same ending as the 12-year-old in Oklahoma.

Stop being so lazy

Here’s the problem. Romney isn’t a great candidate. Honestly, I’m pretty sure that anyone who would be arrogant enough to run for President wouldn’t be a good candidate for President. You see the dilemma.

I’ve heard lots of people complain that the choice between Obama and Romney is just a choice of which form our Gozer will take. Fair enough. But maybe we should take a close look at our premise and see if it is valid.

Why would we care if a candidate is perfect or not? I believe the answer is because everyone wants a President who will rule over us wisely and would use his good judgement to rule as we would if we had the same information as he has. If that’s what we wanted, then only perfect candidates would be acceptable.

Here’s the problem. We aren’t electing a Philosopher King. We are electing a chief of the Executive Branch of our government. If we had a Philosopher King, we could go back to being lazy and ignoring politics while the King benevolently ruled over us. I don’t know about you, but my ancestors didn’t come to this country to be ruled over. Where’s my master? That son of a bitch ain’t been born.

We keep searching for the perfect candidate who will do everything for us so that we can forget the hard work of ruling over ourselves. That’s just laziness. That’s how we got to where we are. No one seized unconstitutional power, we gave it to them. We voted it that way. And why did we do it? Because we were lazy and didn’t want to be bothered. We didn’t want to get our fat asses off the couch and make it happen, we wanted to sit in front of the boob tube and watch it happen.

Every time I hear some hard-core Libertarian I want to strangle him. Libertarians seem to have two problems. One is that they don’t seem to have any idea how to convey their beliefs without basically telling people that they are both wrong AND stupid. I can’t find it, but there is a hilarious video about how Libertarians can’t sell their ideas to regular people because Libertarians would rather rant at people that make the case for them. The second problem with Libertarians is that they make the perfect the enemy of the good. They can’t accept “good enough.” If it ain’t perfect, it’s worse than Barack Obama. Politics is the art of compromise, and as far as I can tell, the stronger Libertarian they are, the less flexible they are to compromise.

This means that Libertarians are unable to infiltrate and convert the Republican Party, which is the only possible route to power for them. No one with even an ounce of sense believes that the Libertarian Party will replace the Republican Party. And that whole “Liberaltarian” garbage was just a way to confuse those Libertarians who had hit the bong so many times that they had lost touch with reality. So rather than win slowly, the Libertarians would prefer to lose quickly. It’s a shame, because for the most part the Libertarians are right. The government shouldn’t spend what it doesn’t have, should respect people’s rights and their property, and should basically stay the hell out of their lives to the maximum extent possible.

Why won’t Libertarians infiltrate, take over, and change the Republican Party? Laziness. They don’t want to take the time to make the changes. They don’t want to pressure their Representative and Senators. They don’t want to bug the crap out of their State Rep and Senator. They don’t want to make sure that the Governor knows their name. That’s actual work. Sitting on the couch bitching about how it’s just a different face on the same Gozer is easy.

Everyone needs to get it through their thick skulls that “throw the bums out” isn’t the solution. The next set of bums will do the same thing. They will do what is profitable, and changing the bums doesn’t change what is profitable. We can’t find only good people to represent us. We are mostly going to elect power-hungry jackasses. It’s hard not to elect them when they are basically the only people who would run for office. The solution isn’t to change the people, it is to change what is profitable.

Milton Friedman said it best.

 

 When you make it politically profitable for the wrong people to do the right thing, they’ll do it. It’s just that making the right thing politically profitable is hard work.

So what are you going to do? Are you going to do the hard work? Or are you going back to your couch secure in the knowlege that the Gozer is just going to destroy you anyway?
