Has The World Gone Mad?

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Presenting a few of tonight's headlines...

  • *OBAMA:`THERE WILL BE CONSEQUENCES IF PEOPLE STEP OVER THE LINE' (like last time with Syria?)
  • *U.S. WARNS OF POSSIBLE EXPLOSIVES HIDDEN IN SHOES: NBC NEWS (credible threat?)
  • *FACEBOOK TO BUY WHATSAPP FOR ABOUT $16B CASH AND STOCK ($50 per user!)
  • *U.S. COULDN'T REACH UKRAINIAN OFFICIALS IN FEW DAYS: OFFICIALS (can you hear me now?)
  • JAPAN JAN. IMPORTS RISE 25.0% Y/Y (Abenomics is nailing it)
  • *MADURO CALLS ON OPPOSITION LEADERS TO STOP VENEZUELA VIOLENCE (sounds like a plan)
  • *ABE: WANTS OPPORTUNITY FOR TALKS WITH CHINA, SOUTH KOREA (to divvy up the rest of Asia?)
  • *CNN LIES ABOUT VENEZUELA EVERY DAY: MADURO (no comment)
  • Vietnam Bans Import of Used Electronic Devices
  • *WILLIAMS: FED HAS REACHED `END OF THE LINE' ON JOBS THRESHOLD (that didn't last long)
  • *MADURO SAYS `IT'S YOUR LAST CHANCE OR YOU'RE TOAST' (but you wanted peace?)
  • *MORIMOTO:BOJ TO CHECK RISKS, MAKE POLICY ADJUSTMENTS AS NEEDED (risk?)
  • *SUGA: EXPECTS IMPROVEMENT IN TRADE BALANCE IN FUTURE (any day now)
  • *OBAMA SAYS WILL SEEK COOPERATION WITH PUTIN ON UKRAINE (worked last time?)

Has the world gone mad?

 

And a few more that made us frown...

  • *ABE: CABINET TO MAKE DECISION ON REINTERPRETING CONSTITUTION (sounds like it's catching?)
  • CHINA PBOC TO SELL 60B YUAN OF 14-DAY REPOS: TRADER (how's that tightening going?)
  • WILLIAMS SAYS RATE GUIDANCE MANY YEARS IN ADVANCE `NOT HELPFUL' (as long as IMF's Greek 2022 GDP forecast still stands)
  • MADURO SAYS ECONOMY HAS TOO MUCH LIQUIDITY (just perplexed)
  • HOCKEY SAYS G-20 SHOULDN'T TALK IN GENERALITIES ABOUT GROWTH (What else is there?)
  • BULLARD SAYS WEATHER HASN’T LOWERED HIS ECONOMIC OUTLOOK (sigh)
  • *MCLAREN SAYS IT'S DEVELOPING ENTRY-LEVEL SPORTS CAR (makes perfect sense)
  • *PHILIPPINES FILES CASE VS IMPORTERS WHO BROUGHT IN CANADA TRASH (who else is gonna do it for minimum wage?)
  • *SUGA SAYS ABENOMICS DOES NOT HAVE A MILITARY PURPOSE (so why bring it up?)

 

And perhaps our favorite of the night:

NHK's Naoki Hyakuta admits to Asahi that he "went too far" in describing some Tokyo Gov candidates as "human scum."

And it's only going to get worse.  Look at the shit I have to deal with:

 

As the New Mexico State Police and the Albuquerque Police Department have come under scrutiny in recent months for a rash of officer-involved shootings, the man who sets the tone for training police recruits in the state has instituted a curriculum that puts less restraint on officers in deciding when to use deadly force.

“Evil has come to the state of New Mexico, evil has come to the Southwest, evil has come to the United States,” said Jack Jones, director of the Law Enforcement Academy, when asked about the new approach.

...

Since September, Jones has shortened the cadet training from 22 weeks to 16 weeks, instituted a physical-fitness entrance exam that is the same for men and women and applicants of all ages, and added more training exercises, including live-fire vehicle stops. These changes were necessary to prepare new police officers to work in a more dangerous world, he said.

...

The New Mexican filed a request under the Inspection of Public Records Act for a copy the academy’s new curriculum, but Jones said he doesn’t plan to release it because criminals could use the tactics taught to cadets against them.

“I’ll burn them before you get them,” he told The New Mexican.

http://www.santafenewmexican.com/news/local_news/police-academy-director...

 

Fuck you, Jones.  Fuck you right to hell.  Hand over the fucking records you stupid fuck.  It is your duty to under the law, you stupid cunt.  All that this is going to do is lead to people shooting your beloved badge wearing cocksuckers in SELF DEFENSE.  This evil that you speak of wears badges. 

 

I hope the SF New Mexican files a petition for a writ of mandamus, as well as injunctive relief preventing cocksucker Jones from burning the records, and wins.  And if he burns the shit anyway, I hope the judge throws his ass in the clank.  Cocksucker.

Lack of training has been a problem for a while. The federal police on military installations only require 30 days of training for prior service applicants.

But yes, it's only going to get worse.

Edit: Anyone notice a pattern here? Regular citizens require more sensivity training and fucking socialist bullshit, while the jack-booted thugs that keep "order" are getting basically battlefield training for US streets.

Yes, I notice that pattern.  When SHTF, wearing a police uniform is going to be a very, very stupid thing to do in NM.  However, it does seem that there is growing awareness within the sheep now.  Look at the guy in Texas who killed that cop who was on a no knock raid in his house that the grand jury no-billed on capital murder.  You can get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, yet they still no-billed him on that.  The days of being a fucking storm trooper are going to come to an end for cops.

Dear gun and badge thugs,

You will be held responsible for your aggressions against the American people. Article 3, section 3 of the Constitution demands it and Nuremberg Principle IV:

Principle IV states: "The fact that a person acted pursuant to order of his Government or of a superior does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him".

This principle could be paraphrased as follows: "It is not an acceptable excuse to say 'I was just following my superior's orders'".

If I were in charge, it would be 24x7 audio and video surveillance on all those employed by government, including but definitely not limited to, Congress Critters, POTUS, SCOTUS, Janitors, police, sheriff, DA, Mayor, and gardeners.

As a bonus, all would also be subject to random body cavity searches...until morale improves.

That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane, and Lenny Bruce is not afraid

Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs
Feed it up a knock, speed, grunt, no, strength
The ladder starts to clatter with a fear of height, down, height
Wire in a fire, represent the seven games
And a government for hire and a combat site
Left her, wasn't coming in a hurry with the Furies breathing down your neck

Team by team, reporters baffled, trumped, tethered, cropped
Look at that low plane, fine, then
Uh-oh, overflow, population, common group
But it'll do, save yourself, serve yourself
World serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed
Tell me with the Rapture and the reverent in the right, right
You vitriolic, patriotic, slam fight, bright light
Feeling pretty psyched

It's the end of the world as we know it

I sympathize, but please realize that's probably exactly how they want you to be.

"Keep your wits about you when all others around you are losing theirs."  

"A man is like metal.  Of little use when he loses his temper."

DECADES OLD expression passed on to me by my Grandfather.  I rely on them more now that I ever have.

Modern version:  Never go full-retard.

There will come a time when we will need people who are cool under fire (perhaps literally).  Practice being one of those people.  Others you care about may depend on you being so some day.

And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.
8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth

It's not just people who are told they have influence and control that are narcissists and sociopaths. Sadly, children in Australia as young as 10 are walking the streets with the same traits with zero respect for themselves, their associates or any other person on the planet. Their self absorbtion is so complete, I'm surprised they don't turn into black holes. They would actually be more useful that way, because we could just keep throwing trash in there and the gravity would compress it quite nicely.
