***SPECIAL REPORT*** We’re Fractalling Fubared!!!!

This is my post for Halloween because not even Godzilla is scarier than what I’m about to tell you.

 godzilla

 Is it my imagination or is this country fractalling fubared?

What the hell has happened to the idea that there’s such a thing as common sense (a state of being that cannot be replaced by common core)?

Take, for example, the headlines I read on Saturday morning while doing an in-depth 10 minute search for my monthly contribution as a ***SPECIAL REPORTER***:

homework

  • Creepy Utah School Asked Its Students To Spy On Their Families, Take Inventory Of Medicine Cabinet (Middle school students were given forms to use and told to list what was in their parents medicine cabinet).
  • Study: Smoking Cannnabis Causes Complete Remission of Crohn’s Disease in 45% of Patients. (Yet another reason Big Pharma wants to keep it out of your hands).
  • Man Calls A Suicide Prevention Hotline, SWAT Team Shows Up And Kills Him. (Next time I get depressed, I’ll call the Mafia.  They may be thieves but they still have brains.)
  • Cop Burns The Body Of A 3-Yr-Old Child For “Not Letting Him Sleep,” ( I wouldn’t want him to investigate a suicide caller.

Cody-MarroneHe’s out on bail.  In the meantime, a child with 3rd degree burns from a hairdryer faces a life sentance of therapy).

  • War on marijuana unconstitutional, doctors testify in federal court Monday (The article says that smoked or eaten cannabis has no overdose level. However, “medically accepted” prescription drugs may kill about 22,114 people from drug overdose this year whereas pot has been proven to alleviate pain for cancer patients).

 HMMM….

True, most people don’t read Liberty Crier.  But I’m not most people.

I’m a ***SPECIAL REPORTER***!

(You probably already knew that).

I also have an interest in what’s going on with Edward Snowden.  I had to go to a non-US source, a blog, to get this story (posted February 2014):

http://jonathanturley.org/2014/02/01/edward-snowden-speaks-us-blackout-of-interview/

The gist of it is that Snowden was interviewed for German TV and (purportedly) most of the world got to see it, but it “appears to have been blocked intentionally by US government authorities.”  The blogger stated it was posted on YouTube and taken down almost immediately.  However, you can find it on RuTube—if you speak and write Russian (which I don’t).   Snowden disclosed that “seeing Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, directly lie under oath to Congress” was his breaking point.  He said that Clapper lied under oath to Congress in March of last year when he denied the existence of a domestic spying programs.

That’s March of 2013.

The place where the video should be of the interview says, “Sorry, this video does not exist.”  Apparently, it now resides with the ghosts of video’s past.

So I Googled, Snowden says Clapper lied under oath to see what headlines came up.

Intelligence Director Clapper insists he didn’t lie to Congress — but ‘misspoke’ about NSA spying  (September 18, 2014.  Wait!  Didn’t this happen, like, over a year ago? Talk about the tail wagging the dog).

Clapper says:  “It has been very disappointing to have my integrity questioned because of a mistake.” 

Lawmakers slam intelligence chief James Clapper for lying to Congress, call for DOJ investigation. “Amid mounting pressure from federal courts, the president’s NSA review panel, and the public, several lawmakers today called for the Department of Justice to investigate intelligence community director James Clapper for lying to Congress. . .It fuels distrust that citizens feel toward their government. . .”

DUH!

House members called for the investigation in December 2013.  The DOJ was tasked to get the (rock) bottom of this issue.  (WAIT A FRACTILLING MINUTE!!! Aren’t these the same people who are suing the states that are following federal voting and immigration laws?).

 On April 4, 2014 the DOJ was accusing of refusing to investigate and on April 8th they said they were reviewing the case.  By July, someone decided that all Clapper needed to do was apologize for a “clearly erroneous” statement he made to Congress over the National Security Agency’s surveillance activities.

Let me get this straight.  If you’re a legal US resident it’s called lying under oath and you go to jail.  If you’re a government employee or a politician you simply, “misspoke,” apologize and everything is just fine?  

And if you’re smoking cannibus to alleviate cancer pain,  instead of taking something that might kill ‘about 22,114′ people from overdose , you can go to jail?

It might be funny–to someone who’s 2 brain cells away from comatose.

This year I give you the scariest Halloween Costumes in existence:

Crabby person who likes to rant. Reading it is free so remember-- you get what you pay for. Well endowed with the multi-layered weirdness that lurks inside a not-quite-right-mind. That's how I write SciFi. Crabby, weird, and to make matters worse, I write poetry. Some of it is even...shudder...nice. I feel like a sandwich that went on a journey of self-discovery just to find I was pastrami with Maraschino Cherries, hot peppers, the contents of an MRE and broccoli on gluten free cheese bread. After that kind of trauma no 'wich is the same again.

  1. Ok. I have to say this. But locally here when someone wants to commit suicide by jumping over a bridge, the cops will stop traffic for hours trying to talk to him. Here in DC hat happens about once a year. My solution? One little push and traffic will start rolling along. We can even put a nice comfy boat underneath the bridge to attempt to make a capture. Mine life for thousands. Messy decision.

  2. Reblogged this on Blogdramedy and commented:

    This month on NWR, Floridaborne takes on Halloween and the headlines. All in one wicked funny post. She went beyond what management could have asked for. But she totally ignored them and this is what happened. Check it out over on The Nudge Wink Report!

  3. Your post reminded me that we could all use a little more common sense. And by little, for some, I mean a lot.

    Also, you reminded me I have a Halloween post to write for Blogdramedy. I’m so happy NWR management signed you to that multi-year contract. *wink*

  4. Nice to read a blog that doesn’t hold back. Let’s go on a mission to find that missing Snowden YouTube. Me? Cowering in fear that speaking out will cause the NSA to come to my house in black SUV’s while I’m in the shower, and drag me away in handcuffs in front of my DAR neighbor — so for Halloween, just posted somebody else’s video of the best dog costume ever. (It really is) . Now you’ve got me fractionated up, and might have to post something more substantial. Glad you’re on staff.

    1. I look at it this way: If I’m dragged away because I know how to spell and to write, it means that the government has nothing better to do than to arrest 1/2 blind grandmothers that weigh less than 109 pounds. The only threat I pose to others happens when I trip over my feet and fall forward. I might bounce off someone on the way to the ground. Frankly, I think the government has more important problems to tackle. “-)

          1. I wonder how dark a pair of Ray-Bans I can find? Better yet, some of those welder’s glasses.

            I tried drinking to take the edge off all the nonsense, but it brought out the bully in me. Marijuana brings on psychosis, so that’s out.

            My agenda is next weeks ballot casting for mid-terms. I’m clearing the deck. If you’re in, I’m voting you out, if you’re new, I’m suddenly becoming a Catholic and getting me some prayer beads.
