Wannabe far to chicken-shit to join the actual military and charged with cold blooded murder is arrested. I keep telling my guys we have far more to fear from dickweeds like Frein than we do from Musselmen or ebola...and I cannot help thinking that in his case the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.
I haven't had the time recently to post even semi-regularly, and some explanation is in order. Back in August, Mrs. Froth and I became foster parents, and hopefully, we'll be able to adopt our new addition. For legal reasons, I cannot reveal much about our new addition, but we got the call one summer afternoon, "Hi, its CYF, we have a child we think would do well in your home, we'll be there in 35 minutes if you accept."
Needless to say, watching two kids is quite time consuming, leaving me very little time to think and write. Oftentimes, when I do get the time, its late, and most of the "A" listers have beaten me to the punch and said things far better than I could.
I feel a bit left on the sidelines during this election, and I'm missing out on some comedy gold with Pennsylvania's porno scandal on the high court, which is becoming quite amusing, albeit embarrassing for the Commonwealth.
So, I'll try to post when I can, but between work, child care, and court apperances, time is tight.
Gov. Tom Corbett said today that he has asked state Attorney General Kathleen Kane for more information regarding old email accounts of top current and former Pennsylvania officials, including members of his own administration, that contained sexual images and videos.
I agree with Ol' One-Term Tommy on this one. Anyone can send an email to any official. An official ccould even innocently open it without knowing the contents. However, if the individual opened it, and then forwarded it, then there could be a wee problem.
A 6-day-old infant is in intensive care following surgery after he was shot in the head by a stray bullet fired by a hunter Thursday evening in Indiana County.
District Attorney Pat Dougherty said it was believed the bullet only grazed the boy, but it actually went through the baby's head.
The infant was flown to Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC. Mr. Dougherty said doctors have reported there would not likely be a condition update until Saturday.
While I don't hunt, I have no problem with hunting, and I enjoy game killed by my friends that do hunt. What strikes me is the Commonwealth's 150 yard safety zone from roads and occupied structures, One hundered and fifty yards is probably sufficent for shotguns, but rifles? Those things are lethal for miles.
I'm sure the individual responsibe feels terrible, but I've always been taught to A: Hit your target, and B: Make sure you have an adequate backstop.
I've had to put down injured deer, sick raccoons and maimed groundhogs as part of my job, but I've always made sure I had something beyond the animal that would safely contain the bullet if I missed or the round traveled through and out the other side of the critter.
Ruth Ann Dailey then complains about the new centralized parking kiosks, even though parking revenue is up, and parking tickets are down, because she has to sometimes stand in line to pay for parking, and can't remember her license plate numbers. She'd like the old coin meters back, oh, and stay off her lawn you lousy kids!
I picked the hot peppers in the garden today, and tried my hand at some hot sauce. Step one was seeding and chopping the peppers, then simmering them in 3 cups of vinegar along with 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and four cloves of crushed garlic.
Step two was liquifying the mixture after it simmered for ten minutes.
I then poured it into hot jars and capped them. The sauce needs to age for three months in a dark place before using, so it should be ready shortly before Festivus.
What’s now clear is that the Obama administration policies have outperformed the Reagan administration policies for job creation and unemployment reduction. Even though Reagan had the benefit of a growing Boomer class to ignite economic growth, while Obama has been forced to deal with a retiring workforce developing special needs. During the 8 years preceding Obama there was a net reduction in jobs in America. We now are rapidly moving toward higher, sustainable jobs growth.”
This of course, will mean nothing to the Faux News watching crowd.
