A Matter Of A Degree Or Two On The 22nd

Every once in a while I’ll come up with an idea for a “What If” scenario, and then take a run through the possible divergent paths that it might cause to happen, versus what actually did happen.

With all the  hype which I’m sure has no relation to all of those recent t.v. specials about the **alleged** John F. Kennedy Dallas shooting, todays derailed train of thought has to be “What If” the shooter was off by only a fraction of a degree? What if there had been a gust of wind that was strong enough to deflect the arc of the bullet, and Jacqueline Kennedy was the one who took the hit?

Most likely occurrence?  JFK makes major accomplishments as a liberal politician and then sweeps the re-election for his second term after the Republicans decide they might as well run Nixon again since they have no chance to win against that certain sympathy vote anyway.

Next up: What if Sirhan B. Sirhan, the (I.M.H.O.), first Arab terrorism purveyor in America didn’t just happen to, for whatever reason, be carrying a gun in kitchen area of the Ambassador hotel just as Robert Kennedy walked by?

** C’mon now, do you really think that one person acting alone using a crapped out WWII Italian bolt action rifle was able to aim, shoot, take his eye from the scope while he re-cocks it, then re-aims it and manages to squeeze off a second and then a third round in just a few seconds and hit a moving target a few hundred yards away that was smaller than one of the paper plates you had your 4th of July barbeque meal on?

Really?

O.M.G., Sarah Palin Was Right!

 What, Sarah Palin was right?

O.k., by most definitions she’s always been right, as in “Far To The Right”, politically speaking.

But in this case I’m talking about her statement that with the passage of Romney Obama Care there will be “Death Panels”, and son-of-a-bitch, it turns out that regarding this she’s correct.

However, to clear up the confusion that has inevitably accompanied her statements in the past, it might be better if you call death panels by their common usage name:

Insurance Companies”

California Raises The Bar To Get To The Bar?

Some members of the California Supreme Court have said that former journalist Stephen Glass is “Morally Unfit” to practice law as he had fabricated stories (A.K.A. lied) in articles that ran in nationwide magazines .

They same folks also said they were not sure that Mr. Glass has been rehabilitated enough to practice law.

Morally Unfit to practice law?

Rehabilitated enough to practice law?

~ Supremes please! ~

There’s an old adage that if a male politician were caught in bed with a live boy or a deal girl, it would likely cause that person to never get re-elected to public office. Yeah, I get that, but I’ve never thought that there was a bottom line for someone whose dreams included being a lawyer.

Excuse me, I stand corrected.

Another Random Ayn Rand-Dumb Thought

Rand Paul made a heartfelt apology for (*perhaps*) stealing the written words of others which he (*was alleged to have*) used in several of his speeches lately. (*Legalese, to avoid litigation*)

Image

Stealing 1/2 of Churchills’s trademark gesture?

Rand was convincing enough to turn around many of the detractors who thought this might be the end of his presidential aspirations for the 2016 election, irrational as they were.

Image

Well, it worked for Bob Dole, didn’t it?

Rand’s dream of “Taking Back America came to a screeching halt yesterday when it was found that when you translate his apology speech into Russian, it is a word for word lift from a speech by Joseph Stalin early in his career.

Or, as some say in Sovietland, Я копия кошки
