The Friday Follies – All the news that is news.

Nothing has inspired me to write a LONG or detailed post today, well, nothing so far, but that is subject to change, so here’s a few news stories that DID piqued my interest today.

US incomes fall for first time in nearly 2 years

WASHINGTON (AP) – Americans earned less last month, the first decline in nearly two years. With less income, consumers could cut back on spending and weaken an already-fragile economy.

Welcome to the world of the unemployed, the under employed and retirees on Social Security. SS has had NO cost of living for 2 years now, how’s that *Hope and Change* BS working out for you??

US strike kills American al-Qaida cleric in Yemen

SANAA, Yemen (AP) – In a significant new blow to al-Qaida, U.S. airstrikes in Yemen on Friday killed Anwar al-Awlaki, an American militant cleric who became a prominent figure in the terror network’s most dangerous branch, using his fluent English and Internet savvy to draw recruits for attacks in the United States.

I believe this line came from Forrest Gump? “One less thing to worry about”, or is it? Sure, it’s a good thing to see this al-Awlaki guy gone, but will his death be a bigger recruitment tool than HE was? We’re going to need a lot more Hell-Fire missiles.

US fugitive wants to serve time in Portugal

LISBON, Portugal (AP) – The lawyer for a captured American fugitive said his client wanted to serve the rest of his jail time in Portugal, but legal experts predicted Friday that U.S. prosecutors will “move heaven and earth” to get him back into the U.S. justice system.

I wonder if George Wright gave ANY consideration to the life and family of his victim?

Canadian Arctic nearly loses entire ice shelf

TORONTO (AP) – Two ice shelves that existed before Canada was settled by Europeans diminished significantly this summer, one nearly disappearing altogether, Canadian scientists say in new research.

OK, admittedly, we have had *The Summer from Hell* here in Texas, but you know, I still don’t buy into this global warming stuff. What happens when we get 18 inches of snow here in the Dallas area? The GloBull warming guys say it’s the fault of global warming. Do any of you remember when Henny Penny, Ducky Lucky and Chicken Little made their findings known? The sky IS falling!

Could model airplanes become a terrorist weapon?

BOSTON (AP) – A 26-year-old man from a Boston suburb was arrested Wednesday and accused of plotting to attack the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol with remote-controlled model planes packed with explosives.

Could model airplanes become a terrorist weapon?

Short answer; sure, model airplanes could easily become a terrorist weapon. Will they? The next time there a Radio Controlled event in your area, attend, and see how many guys you see in trench coats and dark glasses.

9,000 Mexican migrants repatriated from Arizona

MEXICO CITY (AP) – Mexico’s government says nearly 9,000 Mexicans caught as illegal migrants in Arizona have been flown to Mexico City the past two months under a voluntary repatriation program.

9,000 out of approximately 20 million? A drop in the bucket. And a voluntary repatriation program? Who knew? Is our economy that bad if these guys volunteered to go back to Mexico?

And in *other* news*

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is with a heavy heart that I make this announcement; the current version of The Thin Blue Line Police Support Group on Facebook is going away. Facebook has, in their constant effort to *improve* things, taken ALL ability to add new members away from TTBL Admins. We can’t accept new members now, and to be totally honest with you, we’re just not getting ANY member response or input, and I am not going to carry on with my efforts if there’s no interest.

Thank you to those that have become members and to those that did participate in the past but according to Facebook we are just not *active* enough and I have far too many things on my plate to keep beating a dead horse!

Good day to all of you, and to ALL Police Officers, be safe out there…

    Note to US government regarding Hell-fire missiles. Use all you want and then make more. Ya blow up enough of ‘em it ceases being a recruiting tool and becomes something of a discouragement.

    Of course there was ONE presidential candidate who condemned the deserved death of Al Awlaki. But I know his name is regarded as a swear word in these parts, so I won’t mention it.

    Remember that there are still thousands of missiles missing from Libya. How many downed US airliners before Bambam declares martial law? Thank God for Oath-keepers.

    Keep your powder dry

    On Anwar al-Awlaki’s death: Piece of candy anyone?

    Fred, you DO KNOW that I’m loath to disagree with you right? But Sorry Buddy!!!! There is Global Warming… It’s just not Man Made a la OwlGore. The temps in the summer have been hotter and some winters Colder… but it is SUN ACTIVITY, and all those idiots that think Man is causing it (Man Made Global Warming or Anthropomorphic Global Warming) have got rocks in their heads.

    I know that OwlGore would love to prove that it is man made, but he just can’t do it and as far as a “consensus” goes, you get consensus in congress, or a board room, NOT in science. There was a time when the “consensus” was that the earth was the center of the Universe, and as recently as November 2008 there was a “consensus” that Barack Obama (among the actual voting public that is) offered us hope and change. Well, just like Man Made Global Warming, Obama is a Fraud and that old “hope and change” just didn’t work out.

    Great news updates amigo. Keep your powder dry ya’ hear?.

    Thank you Fred for all the dealings you have done with the loonies and moonbats that log on, post, and always screw things up.
    I really respect your patience with them.
    Me, I could not do the fine job you do, and I know that.
