Police captured Dzhokhar Tsarnaev this evening ending the search for the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. His brother 26-year-old Tamerlan, was killed Friday. The only better ending to the story would be that both brothers were killed.
Experts say that is is better that the brother was captured alive so that they can ascertain why the bombings and killings occurred. Personally, I know why they happened and one less asshole in this world better serves my purpose.
This time of terrorist actions will continue in the future and it's up to the American public how it will be handled. I keep an eye on everyone and if, for example, large numbers of Irish people are going around killing people, then I'm going to reserve my trust for Irish people.
The same is true for Blacks, Muslims, Jews or any other group that may or may not have bad intentions. "Politically Correct" is not a term included in my vocabulary. "Shoot first and ask questions later" better fits my survival techniques and attitudes.
Kudos to the countless Americans who did what they were told to do in this horrible tragedy and also to the roadside public for applauding every police officer, firefighter and other officials who drove their cars away from the scene after this 24 hour ordeal. My prayers go out to the Marathon bombing victims, the fallen police officers and all of their families.....

The News As I See It: Daffy Duck recently turned 76 years old. I like Daffy Duck. He is much edgier than Donald Duck. Donald may not wear pants, but Daffy doesn't wear anything. Daffy is set apart by his bad attitude. He doesn't care if people like him. He's kind of my hero. He is right up there as one of my favorite cartoon characters, right up there with Scooby Doo and Joe Biden.

Since Murray and never used one, he asked the pharmacist about the procedure.

Change into very comfortable clothing and sit in your favorite chair. Open the package and remove the thermometer. Now, carefully place it on a table or a surface so that it will not become chipped or broken. Take out the literature, follow the instructions and you'll be fine."

A lady reporter asked a man at a bar, "Do you drink beer every day?" The man replied, "Yes." The lady inquired, "How much beer a day? The man said, "Around 3 six-packs starting at noon." The lady asked, "How much does a 6-pack cost?" The man said, "Roughly $10.00 at the deli."
The lady Interviewer continued, "And how long have you been drinking like that?" The man answered, "Around 15 years." The lady said, "So with a six-pack costing $10.00 and you consuming 3 six-packs a day, you are spending roughly $900 each month. In one year, you would then be spending $10,800, correct?" The man said, "Correct."
The lady Interviewer inquired, "If in 1 year you spend $10,800 on beer, not accounting for inflation, 15 years puts your spending roughly $162,000. Did it ever occur to you that if you did not drink for the last 15 years, you could have bought a Ferrari?
The man asked the lady, "Do you drink?" The lady Interviewer replied, "No." The man said, "So where's your f**kin' Ferrari?"
A flea walks into a travel agent's office and says to the woman behind the desk, "I've been working very hard this year and I want to book a vacation." The travel agent replies. "Sure, we've got a great one that I can book for you, it's seven days on Ringo Starr's hair. He's in Nice so should plenty of sun, beach and good food."
Four days later the flea comes back to the travel agent and says, "It was rubbish, he's a drummer, it was loud and he spent all day sleeping and only went out at night" The travel agent says, "Well, Omar Sharif is in Monte Carlo, I'll book you in for seven days on his moustache. There should be plenty of fresh air, sun and beautiful women."
Again the flea returns after four days and says, "Omar Sharif plays bridge all day and never left the casino, I didn't see the sun once." The travel agent says, "Ok, I've got a special for you. Bridget Bardot is in St Tropez, shall I book you in for a week on her muff?" The flea says, "That sounds amazing."
Four days later the flea once again walked into the travel agency. The travel agent asked, "Whats wrong? Did you not like Bridget Bardot?" The flea said, "No she was wonderful, she spent all day lounging in the sun, waited on hand and foot, eating wonderful food and meeting beautiful people"
The travel agent said, "What's wrong why are you back here two days early?" The flea said, "Well, it's strange. I was sleeping on Bardot's muff and the next thing I know, I woke up back in Monte Carlo on Omar Sharif's Moustache!"
