Last Saturday, we got a call from our bank. They had noticed someone from Ireland had placed a charge on my card. Was it me? (Answer: no.) Had I authorized someone to use my card? (Answer: No.)
We do not use that card on line. How did it get clear over there?
The college killings in Moscow, Idaho are creepy, but I have a question: Two roommates survived the attack. One of them heard one of the victims say, "There's someone in here." She heard a thump. She heard a dog barking. She hear a victim crying, and a man's voice say, "It's okay. I'm going to help you." She opened her bedroom door to see what was going on and saw a masked man dressed in black she did not recognize walking towards her. She watched him pass by in shock and then went into her bedroom and locked the door. The first 911 call came in seven hours later.
Um...why would a masked man dressed all in black in her home not have warranted an immediate emergency call?
Prince Harry claims to have killed 25 Taliban soldiers in battle. When you're in the heat of battle, how do you know whether it was your bullet or someone else's that actually killed someone? It would seem to me that your adrenalin would be pumping, your heart would be pounding, you'd be falling back on training and seeing your own life flash before your eyes...and yet you've got the presence of mind to mentally mark another kill on your tally sheet?
It just doesn't ring true to me. One of many things that don't ring true to me.
George Santos and his resume:
~He lied about his educational qualifications, claiming schools he never went to.
~He claimed he held jobs that he never held.
~ He claimed his mother was working in an office on 9-11. She survived the initial attack, but died of the cancer she contracted from the dust and smoke in the air several years later.
~He posted very racist photographs, and when called out on it, claimed to be half-black.
~He claimed multiple times to be Jewish, with his grandparents both fleeing the holocaust, but when he was called out on that, he claimed that he'd been misunderstood and that he was saying he was 'Jew-ish'.
How on earth doesa person think he is going to publically make all these claims and no one will ever realize he's lying? And what about the family he DOES have? He did not think some of them would be looking around wondering aloud, "What the heck is George running on about now?" In addition to being Jew-ish, I think the man is fool-ish.
Crazy times we are living in.
It is blowing and snowy today.
Houdini was perched on a kitchen chair pushed under the table. He's turning out to be quite a character.
