Something Lighter

suntrust parkI have gotten a little tired of serious subjects today, so I thought it might be nice (and far less stressful) to share some pics of the Braves’ new digs with you guys.

I have not ventured down there as yet, but am hoping to very soon, as the new ballpark is about ten minutes down I-75 from my domicile.

Enjoy.

If I Seem Irritable, It’s Because I Is

I have officially quit smoking.

I was down to between 2 – 4 per day (individual cigs – NOT packs) but even that wasn’t quite good enough, so I have gone cold turkey.

LOL – If I haven’t managed to piss you off just yet, be patient, because it’s coming.

Trust me. 😉

I like this guy, as he actually “gets it.”

There might just be hope for the UK yet.

Maybe.

Friday Night Funny

1

It is Friday the 13th, you have a ticket booking you on flight 666, and it is bound for HEL.

Are you going to board it?

Via wfaa.com:

In a bizarre Friday-the-13th coincidence, a flight bearing the number of the beast went straight to HEL today.

That’s right. Finnair Flight 666 took off from Copenhagen (CPH) and flew directly to Helsinki (HEL) on Friday.

Even better? The flight took off at 13:00 local time, according to Flightaware. The one-hour, 34-minute flight landed at HEL at 3:41 p.m. Helsinki time.

And it gets even wackier.

The Twitter account @Flightradar24, which tracks air traffic around the world, even pointed out the aircraft is 13 years old, according to its registration and serial number.

It may be less of a coincidence and more of a brilliant move by someone (who needs a raise) in Finnair’s scheduling department. Either way, it’s a fascinating alignment of oddities.

Next on the agenda: Dig through the list of ticketed passengers to find out if anyone named Jason was on Flight 666 on Friday the 13th.

You will find the whole story here, complete with video.

LOL – Somebody at Finnair has a seriously twisted sense of humor.

Fidel (Finally) Goes to Hell

fidel

Now the old bastard is a “good” commie.

Sure took long enough.

Via his favorite newspaper:

Fidel Castro, the fiery apostle of revolution who brought the Cold War to the Western Hemisphere in 1959 and then defied the United States for nearly half a century as Cuba’s maximum leader, bedeviling 11 American presidents and briefly pushing the world to the brink of nuclear war, died Friday. He was 90.

His death was announced by Cuban state television.

In declining health for several years, Mr. Castro had orchestrated what he hoped would be the continuation of his Communist revolution, stepping aside in 2006 when he was felled by a serious illness. He provisionally ceded much of his power to his younger brother Raúl, now 85, and two years later formally resigned as president. Raúl Castro, who had fought alongside Fidel Castro from the earliest days of the insurrection and remained minister of defense and his brother’s closest confidant, has ruled Cuba since then, although he has told the Cuban people he intends to resign in 2018.

Department of Homeland “Security” Looking to Run November Election?

2012-voter-fraud-counter1

Even before the FBI identified new cyber attacks on two separate state election boards, the Department of Homeland Security began considering declaring the election a “critical infrastructure,” giving it the same control over security it has over Wall Street and and the electric power grid.

The latest admissions of attacks could speed up that effort possibly including the upcoming presidential election, according to officials.

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,” Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said.

“There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” he said at media conference earlier this month hosted by the Christian Science Monitor.

DHS has a vital security role in 16 areas of critical infrastructure and they provide a model for what the department and Johnson could have in mind for the election.

DHS describes it this way on their website: “There are 16 critical infrastructure sectors whose assets, systems, and networks, whether physical or virtual, are considered so vital to the United States that their incapacitation or destruction would have a debilitating effect on security, national economic security, national public health or safety, or any combination thereof.”

You can find the rest of the story at this link.

As far as I am concerned, the DHS is every bit as corrupt as the FBI – particularly under the “leadership” of Jeh Johnson who, as we all know, is an appointee of the Kenyan comrade Dear Ruler.

Why not just go ahead and put George Soros in charge of running the election – if he is not already pulling the strings off stage. Somehow I think the result would be the same.

This idea smells, and I am holding out little hope that the worthless congressional RINOs will do anything meaningful to stop it.

The election is still two months away, as such, there is still ample time to bring in independent people to oversee the process.

Should that not happen then we will know the “fix” really is in.
