Wandering Tuesday Motes

Small problem: Headline; “Russian bombing of a Ukrainian hospital could violate the Geneva Convention.” The rules of war (there’s an oxymoron for you), per the Geneva Convention, state that “the sick and wounded have a right to be cared for, regardless of whose side they are on,” and “medical workers, medical vehicles and hospitals dedicated to humanitarian work cannot be attacked.” The small problem, Russia (nor the Soviet Union) never signed the G.C. Germany was a signatory, but that didn’t seem to stop them from doing, well anything. All those treaties are worth less than the paper they’re printed on. Especially if you didn’t sign it.

W T H : Pakistan’s military said a “high-speed flying object” had crashed near the eastern city of Mian Channu and its flight path had endangered passenger flights. India says it “accidentally” fired a missile into Pakistan on Wednesday, blaming the incident on a “technical malfunction” during routine maintenance. How the hell do you “accidently” launch a missile? Got to admire Pakistan’s subdued response. India was warned to “be mindful of the unpleasant consequences of such negligence” and to avoid a repeat. Yeah, that’s very thinly veiled.

Pro-rasslin’: You all know I’m a fan. Even been an announcer. Still like to watch. But boy am I getting tired these current long-assed soliloquies the current roosters seem to be flooding the shows with. From MJF, to CM Punk, to Apollo Cruise and everybody else. If you need someone to talk about how hard their childhood was, or lecture everyone on how you admire another wrestler, if you need this to fill up you show, get some more wrestlers. If you need to fill another time slot with noise, sell another commercial.n Just stop these long winded character sell.

Someone has a sense of humor: Two headlines, one above the other caught my eye. “Japanese stone said to contain evil spirit has split in-two.” “Box of human heads stolen in Denver.” You can’t convince me that’s a coincidence. That’s just a good sense of humor.

Remember the “Sex Tourism”, now it’s Theft Tours : Hillsbourgh, CA. This quiet town has seen an increase in burglaries over the past four months and,  police say a specific group could be responsible. Many of the sophisticated burglary crews are coming from South America for “criminal tourism” and targeting wealthy communities, according to a community alert sent Sunday. Police believe South American Theft Groups (SATG) often enter the U.S. legally and rotate members out of the country in a matter of weeks. Such crime rings were first investigated in Hillsborough in 2018. Suspects often use luxury cars to easily blend into their target communities, police said. Good thing I’m poor. I guess.

Can’t do it: Beto O’Rourke’s gun control plans have solidified, for now, into a pledge to buy back AR-15s and AK-47s from Texans if the state legislature will support doing it. Here is a timeline of O’Rourke’s confiscatory gun control statements: September 12, 2019, he stood on stage at a Democrat presidential primary and said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15.”; As a Democrat gubernatorial candidate in early February 2022, O’Rourke actually talked of defending the Second Amendment.; On February 8, 2022, we noticed O’Rourke’s apparent abandonment of his confiscatory plans by quoting him saying, “I’m not interested in taking anything from anyone.”; But on March 12, 2022, O’Rourke returned to his confiscatory position, pledging to buy back Texans’ AR-15s and AK-47s if the state legislature will support it. At this point I feel I need to point out to O’Rourke, ”You can’t ‘buy back’ something that was never yours.” Also, you can’t trust a politician, any politician, that decides he knows better than the U.S. Constitution.
