Terrorist or Boxing Brain Dead?
Nobody wants to know: Where were the tears from Obama, when he described how cold and heartless it was to place a bomb right at the feet of an innocent 8-year-old boy in Boston? After Sandy Hook, Obama was tearing up so much, people were handing his teleprompter Kleenex’s’. But this attack, left only a pretend to wipe of the corner of the eye.
Nobody Knows if it’s because only three people were killed, or because they did NOT use guns. And the guns they did have were illegal. Or more likely, they weren’t wearing NRA tee-shirts.
The democrats are having a very hard time trying to reconcile the fact that once again we were attacked by Muslim terrorists. The spin control experts went into full “let’s water that down” mode, and called it a ‘religious’ problem. You know…just like the Christians? No difference here.
For the last few days, the poor liberals are having the most frustrating time trying to find out what in the world caused these two normal Porsche driving, dope smoking, regular college boys to want to commit a horrible crime?
And one found the answer: It was Boxing. (via The Right Scoop)
Could the amateur boxing career of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the deceased suspect in last week’s Boston Marathon bombings, have had a role in the massacre? That’s a question leading brain researchers at Boston University’s School of Medicine hope medical examiners look into when they perform an autopsy of the 26-year-old who was killed during a firefight with law enforcement officials early Friday morning.
Nobody Knows if boxing can be blamed for the two brothers shooting a cop in the head so they could get his gun, only to find out, they couldn’t get it out of his holster. But I think we can safely say that there might have been some logical damage in the brain department there.
And speaking of brain damage:
Brain damage or liberal?
Chris Matthews is upset too. He just can’t figure out, and cannot comprehend, how two young American boys, who were going to college in Boston, driving around in Mercedes, could possibly do such a thing:
CLINT VAN ZANDT, FBI PROFILER: No, it’s really coming together. I mean, there’s — as terrible as this case is and was, there doesn’t seem to be a whole lot of heavy lifting. We’ve got the two primary individuals. It’s obvious that they had hands on the devices. The pieces we don’t have, Chris, are where was their inspiration? Where did they get the guidance? Who taught them how to build the bombs? Where did they build them? These are a lot of questions.
MATTHEWS: Why is that important? Why is that important to — is that important to prosecuting? I mean, what difference does it make why they did it if they did it? I’m being tough here. But I don’t know whether, when you look at all this evidence –
What difference does it make how anyone gets killed said Hillary Clinton. Didn’t Hillary say the exact same thing about the poor dead guys in Benghazi? It makes no difference how anybody dies. They’re just dead. Don’t judge. It’s all the same.
Can we assume both Hillary and Matthews have been boxing?
Boxing at the Justice Department:
On the other hand, Nobody Knows how the Justice Department made the big mistake, of arresting the wrong guy in last week’s Ricin scare:
During a court hearing yesterday, lawyers for Curtis contended that he had been framed and pointed investigators toward James Everett Dutschke, a 41-year-old Tupelo man with whom Curtis has feuded. Like Curtis, Dutschke is a martial arts expert, a musician, and a Mensa member.
SURE we are! He’s a Republican. They had the wrong guy, obviously.
(Nobody Knows how much boxing is going on at the workout gyms of the Justice Department, but Nobody suspects a LOT. )
And speaking of the wrong guy.
Boxing at the movies:
Oscar winner Ben Affleck is joining in the effort to promote the Live Below the Line poverty-awareness and fundraising campaign, according to published reports.
The anti-poverty campaign challenges those who sign up to live on $1.50 a day for food and drink for five days.
The figure is derived from the World Bank’s definition of extreme poverty. About 1.4 billion of the world’s 7 billion people live on less than $1.50 a day, according to the charity’s
So Ben is going to live on $1.50 a day…how? Will he park his limo in McDonald’s?
The real cause of poverty: Hint: it’s not boxing.
Nobody Knows it: but I suspect that after the internet taxes kick in, we will all have to learn how to live on $1.50.
Senate bill S.336, the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013, would address the longstanding issue of the online sales tax. The Washington Post has a good rundown that outlines in simple terms the issues pertaining to the bill:
To start, collecting taxes online in every state can be a technical nightmare for many smaller companies. The technical issues in mapping all the appropriate state and local taxes to their proper destinations can be complex and cumbersome for retailers that aren’t necessarily equipped with all the technical resources of larger companies. It would also require changes from many states and localities. Obama has indicated that he supports the bill, according to White House spokesman Jay Carney.
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the Senate bill would level the playing field for small businesses and brick-and-mortar retailers that are undercut by online companies.
Nobody Knows how “level” that playing field is now, but right now, it’s the big companies that always win. What this really means is that the divide between the rich and the poor is only going to get bigger.
