Those Killer Drones!

Mr. Fu expected more from the CSM, but when he reads, “An unmanned US predator drone killed a top Al Qaeda operative Monday…” cannot help thinking that the drone just got lucky.  Or that perhaps drones have gotten a lot smarter and can now tell the difference between a regular Egyptian guy and an Egyptian weapon maker.  That is some trick.

This is the kind of fuzzy headed writing that allows Leftists to conclude that “guns kill people.”  No, the sudden transfer of energy into a body kills people.  Like the sudden deceleration of someone falling from a great height onto the sidewalk, or the chemical energy to kinetic energy to projectile deceleration in a body energy transfer that is the essence of “guns kill people.”

An unmanned drone did not kill Abu Khabab, a US Air Force pilot controlling an armed, unmanned drone killed Khabab.  And with a nickname like Khabab it is just a matter of time before you get toasted.

They Would Not Have Missed The Vote

If they had implemented an electronically distributed Congress.  Think about it, link all Congressional representatives together over high definition video conferencing making it possible to:

a) record all their interactions

b) keep them in their districts or States for constant access by The People

Just think hope much fuel and money we will save by not flying Congress-critters back and forth between D.C. and the various States.

Obama Not Born Here?

Interesting analysis.  Who has the job of confirming his native born status before he gets elected?

Going To The Bird

Wow, Hitchcock Barbie, golly.  And they are going to re-make The Birds?  Oh please.  Like Robert Osborn said (paraphrased), “There are so many poor movies that could be great if they were re-made.  Why re-make something that is already great?”

Sad Thing Is

That The New Yorker cartoon has so much to satire with a magazine cover. Any one of these satirical items thirty or forty years ago would have prevented Obama from even getting elected as dog catcher, let alone to the Senate or to be a major party nominee for the Presidency. This is almost the 1960’s version of a fictional idea of linking Johnson to Mao, Castro, and Ho Chi Min in the ’64 campaign. If any such link would have even been remotely possible to satire back then the Johnson campaign would have skidded off the road into the Grand Canyon. A major candidate that can even be thought or questioned to support or have connections to terrorists in this age should be a death knell, but for some reason in this screwed up mess of some voter’s minds it is not.

And Who Named This Thing?

The Ares rocket?  Did the guy who passed this name even ever read anything about Greek mythology?

Bah, Mr. Fu prefers Orion anyway.

Extreme Cluelessness?

Wow, Iran is really rattling the old sabers now!  Mr. Fu is sure President Bush will see another opportunity to tell Israeli to do nothing in response to an increasingly belligerent and soon to be nuclear Iran.  Whatever happened to the old Axis of Evil talk?  Now that two out of three seem to be out of play, why hold up on number three?  Surely President Bush would like to go out with a one, two, three, knockout hat trick, right?

Will is US Air Force B-52s in Qatar and Diego Garcia sit idly by if the US Navy in the Arabian Gulf is attacked?   Has Iran forgotten that little lesson about their off shore oil rigs?

Morning Chuckle, Pathetic Association, Ray of Hope

So Mr. Fu cranks up the personalized iGoogle page, with the links to Digg. A link to “135 Famous People Who Struggled With Depression” appears, okay interesting. Then the BustedTees ad appears, funny and somehow cruel.

Looking over the list, Colin Farrell, actor in Alexander, well duh, considering that the movie bombed as bad as Hiroshima without going nuclear, who would not be depressed. And Janeane Garofalo?  Oh the picture!?!?!?  Mr. Fu disagrees with her politics, but she was cute in The Matchmaker and Mystery Men.  What the heck happened to her?  This is a tremendous warning against modern liberalism!  Women, pay attention!

Depression is a serious condition.  One problem with this list and one praise though.  The problem is the inclusion of mass murders, though perhaps it does point out the depths one can reach while depressed.  But on the positive side this list shows many accomplished people who suffer or suffered from depression.  Some had tragic endings, but many, many of these individuals made such a positive impact on the world.  Depression is serious, but treatable, and it does not have to be the only noteworthy thing in your life.
