Three unrelated stories yet all are compelling and all illustrate things going wrong and people doing stupid stuff in order to make themselves look good when they are dripping with blood and stealing stuff, etc. First, the crazy students who think college is an expensive playground where they can wreck things for fun. University students using the library for running wild, skateboarding and throwing balls, eating instead of studying:
Since the University of Houston video surfaced on November 30, UT Austin followed suit, along with a version created by students at the Sam Houston State University…Waleed Maoed, a student at the University of Texas at Austin, and several friends filmed themselves competing in a series of random physical challenges dubbed the ‘Library Olympics’.
The hashtag first appeared among students pulling off similar stunts in the libraries of the University of Houston, and other schools have joined in with their own versions.
No need to say anything but…the parents should spank these kiddies and they should all be kicked out of school but won’t, of course. They are paying a lot of money to be stupid! And will never escape their debts, either, unless they are very lucky.
Wes Clark Jr. and some other guys bow to Native Americans and beg for forgiveness…which is infuriating to me since my own family was on the ‘frontier’ from 1600 to 1900 and I lived on a reservation in Arizona at one point in my life and we got along with the Tribes just fine.
He didn’t do anything so why is he bowing down and apologizing? My family did stuff, not his. If anyone in his family was part of the military and the push across the US and mine did this for the last 500 years, even then, he has no right to apologize for them.
The particular tribe he was apologizing to was quite violent and aggressive towards other tribes and guess what? The US military and before that, the people from Europe who came over here were allies of the tribes who wanted to fight the other, stronger tribes.
For example, where I grew up, the Tribes there were quite pleasant to my family because my own ancestors fought to protect them from the Apaches! Honest to god. The tribes who feared the Apaches actually worked along with my great grandfather to hunt down Geronimo.
When he was caught, our family made friends with the Apaches and did things with them, too, so the Apaches, when they wanted someone to help fight the Bush family over the issue of Geronimo’s skull, asked me to help them if I could.
What is ten times worse is, Wesley Clark is apologizing for the wrong war crimes:
Note that this war criminal who should be on his knees to the people he, personally, attacked, also has feathered his military/industrial nest by joining a group that makes money off of the DC gravy train. A story I wrote about earlier today.
A side story today: Venezuelan government confiscates five million toys, claiming country’s largest distributor was going to hike up the prices and sell them for a massive profit over Christmas as chaos grows in this communist regime nation.
When the price of oil dropped it caused all the ‘socialist’ oil nations including Saudi Arabia which props up everything by handing out oil money to the entire population in a socialist way, has been collapsing and this includes Saudi Arabia.
The government printed money in the classic way of Weimar Germany and has the obvious result which reminds us all that ever since LBJ began printing money and Nixon upped the ante to run illicit, illegal wars we never won, we, too, have seen our money degrade badly, too. Yikes.
