mexicans

those darned mexicans are up to their old tricks. back in december 2013 a mexican woman was picked up for riding public transit without paying. when the transit cops checked her identity it was discovered that she was in the country illegally and had been ordered deported twice. while in custody she killed herself. so it goes.

all of the politically correct special interest groups jumped on the case and somehow or other it became our fault that she was in the country illegally and decided to kill herself. there were lots of protests by other mexicans and statements from the government of mexico condemning our actions. imagine a lowly country like canada having the temerity to try and enforce their immigration laws. there was such a hue and cry over our actions that an INQUEST WAS CALLED FOR TO LOOK INTO HER DEATH. these public inquests are not cheap and it's almost a foregone conclusion that the government will be condemned for doing its duty:

"This coroner's jury listened to six days of evidence and it is absolutely crystal clear that they understood that Canada Border Services had made just so many mistakes, had so many problems that contributed to the death of Lucia Vega Jimenez."

what really bugs me is not one politician has the guts to stand up and say, "oh fuck off, she killed herself. blame mexico for having a shithole of a country she was trying to escape."

but who gives a shit. hockey season has started and our mighty 'nucks are undefeated at the moment. 3 wins, zero losses! and hockey is a very classy sport!

if mexicans and hockey aren't your cup of tea, how about HITLER'S SEX LIFE??? i kinda believe the bit about hitler having his niece crap and piss on him.

i love you sons of bitches.

legitimate threat or hysteria?

the ebola adventure is getting quite interesting. disputes over funding, disputes over quarantines, disputes over transmission, disputes over vaccine etc etc etc. what's a poor boy to believe? here in the great white north we've been immune from most of the world's problems. someone mentioned an economic meltdown a few years ago but from what i've experienced, there was no economic crisis. just more hysteria. here is the photo that has caught my attention regarding the ebola situation:

the above is a photo taken from the christian science monitor so i tend to believe it's authenticity. it's a convoy transporting one nurse suspected of carrying the ebola virus in spain. several ambulances with an escort of police in cars and on motorcycles. why the heavily protected convoy to transport one suspected person with the virus to an isolation facility? do they think the nurse might escape captivity and roam the countryside infecting innocent people helter skelter? do they suspect some terrorist group might kidnap her and drop her onto the world trade center? or are the spanish authorities a bunch of nervous nellies?

i don't know the answers to these questions but i thought it was a real cool photo.

on a more pleasant note, a gaggle of indonesians got together and rescued a bale of sea turtles:

indonesia is infested with muslims so i'm guessing they were in on the good deed. imagine if those ISIS renegades were to lay down their weapons for a day and launch an effort to save a few loggerhead turtles in the mediterannean. does anyone have the email address of the guy in charge of ISIS so i can put forth my suggestion? i smell a nobel peace prize for your favorite pilgrim. my mentor, eliot rosewater, will be pleased as punch.

so take a deep breath, forget about ebola, imprint the picture of sea turtles on your brain and enjoy the moment. the world is a beautiful place.

i love you sons of bitches.

deadwood

it's getting to that time of year when the annual deadwood marathon begins anew. i think this will be the 8th time i'll have watched the series and every time i marvel at the wisdom of al swearengen and hang on his every word. does anyone remember me crying the blues over the faulty discs i bought on ebay that damaged my blu ray player? and last year i bought new blu ray discs from amazon that presented another problem, the LG blu ray player had a memory like a sieve and could never remember where i left off the previous evening. when you only watch about 20 minutes each night and are often medicated, this can be a real problem. of course one man's problem is another man's opportunity.

yesterday while the world was enthralled with baseball playoffs and the marketing genius of the nfl, i was adding another dvd player to the mix. i dug up an old harmon kardon dvd player that sonny had bought years ago and never used. it didn't have a remote but that was no problem since i have an ample supply of harmony programmable remotes. i also have a huge box of wires, cables, cords etc so all systems were a go. after a few trials and tribulations everything came together and i now have 3 dvd players connected to the tv.

it's a HARMON KARDON 31. when we last moved and i was clearing out junk i posted it on craigslist for $20 and didn't get one response and now i'm very happy to have hung onto it. the picture quality is about average but the sound is excellent and best of all it's really well built. the discs fit snugly in the tray and the mechanism for sliding in and out is top notch, much better than my sony or lg. and best of all, i've programmed the remote so all my favorite buttons are right where i want them. i can lay in the dark and let my fingers do the walking.

once again, the al swearengen take on life that is my guiding light:

AL SWEARENGEN'S TAKE ON MISFORTUNE. (some son of a bitch disabled embedding, hence the link)

i love you sons of bitches.
