Actions have consequences: A Filipino ‘Snake Man’ who claimed to be immune to venom, has died after a cobra bit him on the tongue as he allegedly tried to kiss it. as he showed off the snake to onlookers, Bernardo held the cobra too close to his face, as he pretended to kiss it on the mouth. The cobra – widely recognized as one of the most venomous snakes in the world – lunged at his mouth and bit his tongue. The shocked man screamed in pain before collapsing to the ground – dying shortly after. Don’t blame the snake, he was just doing what snakes do.
Headline: “CNN: ‘ White picket fences are overrated”, so true. Seven-foot chain link with 3 strand barbed wire is much better at keeping the dogs in and people out.
A sad Good-Bye: Keith Cooper died just days before his 74th birthday. While in the Hyde Park area of Chicago, two people demanded he give them his car while he ran errands. When he didn’t give up the vehicle, the robbers then repeatedly punched him in the head as witnesses stepped in to try to stop the attack. His family said his heart could not handle the trauma of the assault and he was pronounced dead at the hospital of a heart attack. What a shame, this guy survived TWO tours as a combat Marine in Vietnam, only to die by criminal actions in his hometown. Chicago has seen a 135% increase in carjackings since 2019. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s office did not immediately return a request for comment on Cooper’s death. I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for a comment. My deepest condolences to the Cooper family.
The fix is in, or else: Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) will play hardball with the Senate’s attempt at a “bipartisan infrastructure” package, forcing a vote next week on the “bipartisan” and purely partisan bills, yet a bill has not been introduced. Schumer will force a vote on the “bipartisan” plan next Wednesday. The majority leader has already threatened to cancel the August recess if a deal is not passed. Can that be?; “co·er·cion; noun; the practice of persuading someone to do something by using force or threats.” Just for reference I Found “If a person, while committing coercion, uses physical force or the threat of physical force, it is classified as a class D felony. If convicted of a class D felony, the punishment is: No less than 1 year, and no more than 6 years in state prison and. Fine of no more than $5,000.”
Justice moves too slow sometimes: A lawyer has argued before the New Hampshire Supreme Court that a truck driver charged with causing the deaths of seven motorcyclists in 2019 deserves a bail hearing after three refusals. Volodymyr Zhukovskyy told Massachusetts State Police after his arrest he was using three or four bags of heroin a day and had used both heroin and cocaine the morning of the crash. Zhukovskyy was the driver involved in a crash that killed seven motorcyclists in New Hampshire. The victims were with the “Jarheads, MC” and on a morning ride when struck by the driver who was on drugs and reaching for a “beverage” just before colliding with the group of bikers. This pos should already be doing “life without”.
This guy is a thief. He and his crew break in to parking areas and cut out the catalytic converters. They’ll hit several cars at a time. Note the Sawzall in his hand. Note he is dressed for “night work”. Be aware.
