It was the best of times. It was. …Well, it was the times….

And so the Mighty Magpie flies and flies and looks down on the countryside and lights upon another worn, worm-holed and textured distressed fence post of topical topsy-turviness.

Its all there folks in black and white for you to read and now, through the magic of streaming media, you can be force fed oodles and oodles of endless tripity tripe that at one time was reserved only for those viewers of the mindless but warmly loved boob tube.

Boobus Americanus

So sit with me here while I regurgitate another round of recent events that should never have come to soak into that sponge that is the human brain.  News that is so irrelevant that it bears noting here at The Mighty Magpie.

Al Franken Cries….right up there with that classic “Jesus Wept.”

Al Franken had his day in Congress this week when he openly wept before the forum during a debate on the renewal of the “Violence Against Women Act”.  It seems he was quoting from the words of the late Sheila Wellstone who was best known as a champion, a modern day Joan of Arc, who advocated the safety of women from the violence of men.

The good Senators voted 68 to 31 to renew the act. Yay for the good guys!  68 senators against violence toward women and 31 senators in favor of violence toward women.  Now, I might be twisting the meaning a bit but people I find it absolutely appalling that this subject even has to be debated.  Violence against women is good---Fire is bad. It’s just that simple.  You are, like the voter says, either for or against.

So Mr. Franken, good on you for standing up and taking out the tears in front of your peers.  Send me a list of those 31 people who voted against the act.  I would be curious as to their reason for fighting against something that is so morally correct.

Thomas Kemp: Did he die in pain?

Thomas Kemp, age 63 was executed this week in the Arizona State Prison system.  Seems that he kill a Hispanic student and told the corrections officer that he did so “without regret”.  He also launched into a tirade about immigrants being beneath him.  Nice guy.  To me, looking from my fence post, this looks like a bonafide hate crime. 

The issue that is has now become part of a civil suit is whether or not Mr. Kemp experienced pain during the execution process. In other words, did the corrections officers hurt the bad man?

Folks, he took the life of another human being and he indicated that he did it without remorse.  Do you think the victim experience pain?  Did Kemp sit his victim down in a nice comfortable chair in a classic Soylent Green moment and put the victim down peacefully while watching a large screen TV of flowers overlaid by layers and layers of classical music?

Of course he didn’t. He slaughtered another human being.  Put this to bed lawyers. How is this going to benefit your deceased client?  Are you going to contact him by Ouija Board to confer?  What is the point? Let this subject die like Kemp let his victim die. For shame!

Well, Boom!

There was an explosion in Hamas last week. What a surprise.  The rebels claim it was a military rocket while Damacus say that “terrorists” caused the explosion.  

Well, Syrian President , Wyle E. Bin Coyote, why don’t you just blame it on the ACME bomb factory?

Bottom line: 16 people died but that should not bother you—what does it matter to you if its 16 or 1000 people dead—blood is blood and it has stained your hands a million times over.   What are 16 more?

Well, I just got a tip that a fellow Magpie has located a couple of crows pretending to be magpies. They are hiding out in a nearby cornfield so until next time…see ya then.
