As part of the beatification process of Unarmed Teenager Mike “let’s try to take a  cops gun” Brown, a few of his supporters wanted to have a fireworks display.

Alleged plot included bombing Arch, killing St. Louis County prosecutor, Ferguson chief

Sources close to the investigation were uncertain whether the men had the capability to carry out the plans, although the two allegedly did buy what they thought was a pipe bomb in an undercover law enforcement sting.

The men wanted to acquire two more bombs, the sources said, but could not afford to do it until one suspect’s girlfriend’s Electronic Benefit Transfer card was replenished.

That’s neat.

Extra points: the two New Black Panther geniuses… one is named Muhammad, the other Ali. Float like a butterfly, sting like a mentally retarded stinkbug what thinks it’s a bee.

In a world full of Surt worshiping wackos, it’s nice to know that so many of them have almost no ability to think strategically.

What’s more: one of ‘em is one of those “sovereign citizen” goobers, and was on the receiving end of a tazer in 2013 when he refused to pay taxes on a purchase he made at a gas station. His reason? Apparently he thinks he’s a “Moorish national” and that that means he has the right to not be taxed.

Finally, at long freakin’ last, a Twitter hashtag has come along that has actually punched through my disdain and engaged my interest:

#ThanksMichelleObama

This is where public school kids go to post photos of the news and improved lunches that they’re getting, based on new “health guidelines” driven by noted  dietician Michelle Obama. You know, for kids.

I think public school food has always been bad, certainly so since the Department of Education took over and began the task of ruining education in this country. But a lot of these… yeesh. I can state confidently that my cats would promptly try to bury a lot of this “food.”

Perhaps most interesting of all is how the Obamas seem to be losing the younguns.

Pentagon Studies Reveal Major Nuclear Problems

The high point: apparently it takes a special wrench to tighten the (presumably explosive) bolts that hold warheads onto the Minuteman ICBM. That’s not the problem. The problem is that there was only *one* of these wrenches, and the technicians FedExed this single wrench from site to site as needed.

That’s greeeeeeeaaaaaaaat.

 

Some years back, Glenn Beck was an interesting and useful radio political yammerer, doing some good work in pointing out the foibles and frauds of the Left. But in recent years he has become more and more odd and irrelevant. I stopped paying any sort of attention to him a few years back, when it seemed that he was beginning to transition to a radio evangelist.

Sadly, it seems he’s gone even further down the rabbit hole of nuttery:

Glenn Beck’s diagnosis and treatment are quackery, say medical experts

The illness, Beck said, baffled doctors all over the world, but has now been diagnosed as “adrenal fatigue” by maverick “chiropractic neurologist” Dr. Ted Carrick.

“Chiropractic neurologist?” Uh-oh…

Now, after a range of treatments by Carrick — including being strapped into and spun around in a giant gyroscope — and an intense regimen of spiritual work and fervent prayer, Beck claims to have a “clean bill of health.”

Oy.

Why do I have the feeling that John Kellogg would have approved?

 

I you haven’t seen or read “The Road to Wellville,” I highly recommend both versions.

No, really.

So today I had a doctors appointment to yet again try and figure out just what’s wrong with my lungs such that I am susceptible to those damned bronchitis attacks.  The festivities began with a series of chest X-rays, and climaxed with the doctor coming in the examination room and announcing:

“We want to schedule you for a CAT scan. There’s a spot on your lung I want a better look at.”

Gah.

yikes

This sure as hell didn’t take long:

Space Tourism Isn’t Worth Dying For

A brave test pilot is dead and another one critically injured—in the service of a millionaire boondoggle thrill ride.

It goes on in that vein for a while: space tourism is bad because it’s not *directly* space exploration. And suborbital space tourism is even worse because it doesn’t put people into orbit, and the technology and techniques required to make reliable, low-cost and quickly turn-aroundable suborbital space vehicles is wholly unrelated to actual space tourism and thus of no value to real space exploration.

And Apollo was just a brilliant piece of propaganda that didn’t actually put a man on the moon but caused the USSR to spend itself into oblivion and we shouldn’t be teaching kids to keep their eyes on the stars when we need them to keep their eyes on the dirt.
Grrrr.

This time in Oklahoma. But wait! There’s something a little different this time…

Stillwater man killed in near-beheading; murder charge filed

The killer, one Isaiah Marin, 21, hacked the victim, Jacob Crockett, 19, to death with a sword. Why? Because Crocketts practicing of “witchcraft” conflicted with Marin’s Christian beliefs. That whole “shall not suffer a witch to live” thing, I guess.

Nothing quite so spectacular as blending religious zealotry with drug use and batcrap insanity.

Some photos horked offa Facebook of both the victim and perp:

‘Religious zealot’ Christian student ‘decapitated 19-year-old friend because he thought he practiced witchcraft’

Yeah, yeah, yer not supposed to profile people based on their appearance… but neither one of these guys looked like winners in the game of life.
