Mirror, mirror...

Greetings good citizen,

Sometimes your target for the day presents itself to you before you’ve had a chance to look at what else is happening in the world, not that I commonly choose the top headline to pontificate upon.

Most often my topics are subjects I’ve expounded on before like last week’s story about cops cuffing kindergarteners’

"She was kicking and screaming and fighting and in hysterics," Croft said. "At that point my daughter ran up to her against TSA's orders because she said, 'My daughter is terrified, I can't leave her.'"

The incident went on for maybe 10 minutes, until a manager came in and allowed agents to pat the girl down while she was screaming but being held by her mother. The family was then allowed to go to their next gate with a TSA agent following them.

Croft said that for the first few nights after coming home, Isabelle had nightmares and talked about kidnappers. She said TSA agents had shouted at the girl, telling her to calm down and saying the suspect wasn't cooperating.

"To a 4-year-old's perspective that's what it was to her because they didn't explain anything and she did not know what was going on," Croft said. "She saw people grabbing at her and raising their voices. To her, someone was trying to kidnap her or harm her in some way."

A buddy of mine has been urging me to apply to the TSA for work…and I’ve always ignored his suggestion…partly because I’ve worked ‘security’ before and it is full of no-minds like the ones portrayed here!

There’s ‘procedure’ and that’s that!

What kind of a nation terrorizes its own children in the name of safety…or is this really the ideal job for a closeted child molester?

Put a badge on ‘em and the pedophile part becomes academic?

Seriously good citizen, this is the price of sacrificing your freedom for safety.

It was just last week we had full grown policemen dragging kindergarteners out of pre-school in steel cuffs, I suppose we shouldn’t be surprised by the total lack of respect displayed by those too stupid to exercise common sense!

So ‘cowed’ by the dictates of intellectuals who don’t understand what they are asking their subordinates to do that they can’t figure out a four year old ISN’T a threat!

Sadly, this is just another example of what happens when you ‘fail to be specific’.

You shouldn’t HAVE to tell a full grown adult that small children are A.) terrified of strangers and B.) HIGHLY UNLIKELY to present a serious threat to air transportation.

But if you DON’T, this is what happens…and now that kid will be in therapy until she’s an adult…and then some considering how fucked up our ‘do as I say and not as I do’ criminals run things.

Of course, we could dismiss this as being signs of the ‘End Times’ but we still have a ways to go before the bottom drops out, end of the summer before trouble starts and the onset of cold weather before disaster strikes.

Um, and you KNOW neither will have anything to do with the Mayan Calendar!

No, the latest rumbling they’re all grumbling about is how our ‘stabilized’ financial system is going to fall apart…again.

What I find, er, ‘odd’ is that nobody is pointing to the obvious reason why the global financial network is going to ‘crash and burn’ in much the same way the energy situation will play out, too much demand and not enough supply.

TO the ‘odd’ part:

Banks make their money ‘lending’ to ‘borrowers’…the latest ‘credit event’ proved that 90 percent of the population is no longer ‘creditworthy’.

Which means the banks HAVE BEEN MAKING LOANS to, er, ‘less than creditworthy’ customers. (It’s that or starve! They have to make money somehow or the branches would all shut down.)

The latest ‘crack’ to appear in the global financial system is India’s inability to ‘afford’ energy to keep its power plants running.

What do you suppose is going to happen when the price of energy puts Joe the average guy in the position of having to choose between paying his loan or putting gas in his car? Will Joe keep going to his job that doesn’t pay him enough to pay all of his bills?

Now comes the interesting part. The ‘world as we know it is brought to you by…YOU!

It is YOU getting your sorry ass out of bed and going to do what YOU get paid for!

Because if YOU don’t, it doesn’t happen when it’s supposed to happen and the whole works gets fucked up.

Something you will eventually figure out for yourself when you hit the light switch on the wall and nothing happens one fine morning.

I know I (most of the time) belabor the obvious but you can appreciate what happens from our featured item for the day when you ‘fail to be specific’.

Which is why the lack of questions regarding A Simple Plan concerns me. If you don’t ask them now while I’m here to explain the intent behind the various clauses, what’s going to happen when somebody else decides to figure it out for you?

Like the idiots in charge of the TSA…or the child molesters over at Homeland Security.

Naturally, we also have other bad examples of what happens when there is a ‘difference of opinion’ over certain issues.

There are how many different denominations of Christianity out there…and if you pick the wrong one, you’re straight to hell!

So what do you say, good citizen, ready to ‘chat it up’ out there?

Thanks for letting me inside our head,
