Thank the gods: David Hogg, in what can only be described as a word-vomit tirade, wrote things like, “kids are the new boats,” and “kids are nice but most people can’t afford them,” as if humans didn’t have children before money was invented. He also noted that, a “BIG reason I will never have kids in the US- I refuse to raise kids in a country that values fucking guns over children’s lives.” Now, I personally don’t know anyone who has sex with a “gun”, but whatever floats your boat. As for Hogg not having any children, thank the gods for small favors.
War is ugly: A leading expert in Russia’s prison system, Olga Romanova, says the Kremlin’s latest recruitment tactic in the war on Ukraine t is something out of her “worst nightmares.” Vladimir Putin’s shadowy private army, Wagner Group—has been taking trips to Russian prison camps in order to enlist convicted criminals to fight in Ukraine, according to accounts from military analysts and videos that have emerged. Romanova’s team said they were horrified to recognize one prisoner they had worked with in a video released by Ukrainian officials of a captured Russian fighter. “Pretty much all murderers we have on our watch have been recruited and they die like flies in Ukraine. Out of the first 42 convicts recruited in the first group, only three survived, out of the second group of 66 convicts, only six returned, including one who had lost his arm,” said Romanova. When you care enough to send the very worst.
Walls, a prison do not make: A bogus motion claiming to be from the U.S. Treasury appeared in the court docket for the Justice Department’s investigation of records seized from Mar-a-Lago. The motion was riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. Court records and interviews suggest the filing came from a serial forger at a North Carolina federal prison. the inmate responsible for the forgery “has been in prison for several years after authorities found him not competent to stand trial following his arrest for allegedly planting a fake explosive outside of a Detroit building.” Apparently, he’s competent enough to fool the U.S. court system. The big question, how did he file it and get onto the docket? Just askin’ for a friend.
Ouch: In March, a freight ship, The Felicity Ace, was crossing the Atlantic and got into trouble. After catching fire, they sank taking 1,117, 2022 Porsche 911’s to the bottom of the sea, most of which had already been paid for. The insurance claim of $400 million is still working its way through the process. At the same time the Felicity was in trouble, a sister ship The Composer was being assaulted by high seas and she lost “several hundred” vehicles washed overboard. So if your friend is bemoaning the loss of his Porsche, give him some sympathy. Then drive off in your Ford.
