Timeline for the Las Vegas Massacre?

It’s been confusing because the Las Vegas police announced a timeline of events, then they revised it. And then they revised it again.

Using forensic analysis, the New York Times has put together a timeline of events from more than 30 different videos taken during the shooting. This gives us the best answer so far for when things happened, but 3 weeks later, we still have almost no information about Stephen Paddock – who he was, why he decided to kill a lot of people.

It’s ludicrous that they expect us to believe that he funded an extravagant lifestyle with gambling. The only way you’re getting rich from gambling is if you own the casino. Since he didn’t, he must have been the luckiest guy in the world…and the most secretive. Usually after a mass murder, the news is full of information about the killer, but it’s like Paddock led an undercover lifestyle. The few details we know, plus the weird silence on everything else about him have made some people wonder if he was doing something fishy for the government and now they have to keep that quiet.

Questions for Hillary Clinton About Her Emails?

The press goes easy on her, asking softball questions when she’s on talk shows, but she does make it hard for any journalists who take their jobs seriously to ask questions. She hasn’t had a real press conference since early December 2015. But, if they were to get the chance, what are the questions we want to hear the candidate asked that the media just aren’t asking?

A State Department Inspector General report on Clinton’s use of a private server for government business was released recently. It found that use was a violation of policy.

We have some questions for Secretary Clinton about the report. Let’s start with who was using the private server and for what purpose.

  1. Have you read the report?
  2. Have you discussed it with your staff?
  3. Which staff members had an email address on your private server?
  4. Did they use that email address for government business?
  5. Did they also use those email addresses for State business? (Emails that would not necessarily be preserved as required by law.)

Songs Used by the CIA for Enhanced Interrogation (Torture)?

Any parent of toddlers will tell you that these first two are a given. When my kids were little there was just VHS tapes so I had a few seconds of sanity while the tape rewound where I could pray for the tape to break or jam so I didn’t have to hear it for the hundred and eleventith time that day. Now with all of the digital delivery systems (Chromecast, Amazon Fire, Roku, Apple TV…) that can be set to repeat ad infinitum, I don’t know how parents stay sane. Turn off the router, maybe?

The Barney Theme Song

Barney is a dinosaur from our imagination
And when he’s tall
He’s what we call a dinosaur sensation.

The Sesame Street Theme Song

Everything’s a-okay
Family, neighbors, friends
That’s where we meet
Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to sesame street?
How to get to sesame street?
How to get to sesame street?
How to get to sesame street?

And there were a couple that made sure to let the terrorist know just who they had pissed off.

America by Neil Diamond

Everywhere around the world
They’re coming to America
Ev’ry time that flag’s unfurled
They’re coming to America!

American Pie by Don McLean – It’s not the song that’s torture, it’s that they refused to explain the lyrics.

Did you write the book of love
And do you have faith in God above
If the Bible tells you so?
Do you believe in rock and roll?
Can music save your mortal soul?
And can you teach me how to dance real slow?

Stayin’ Alive the theme to Saturday Night Fever by The BeeGees.  If it were me being interrogated, I would tell them everything they want to know just to make the disco music stop.

Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk,
I’m a woman’s man: no time to talk.
Music loud and women warm, I’ve been kicked around
Since I was born.
And now it’s all right. It’s OK.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
The New York Times‘ effect on man.

Some of them don’t seem that offensive on the surface. Babylon by David Gray, for example. Nice easy melody and it seems that the Babylon reference might inspire nostalgia and give them some resolve not to talk. On the other hand, dude, you’ve been blind and a fool.

Friday night I’m going nowhere
All the lights are changing green to red
Turning over TV stations
Situations running through my head
Looking back through time
You know it’s clear that I’ve been blind, I’ve been a fool
To open up my heart to all that jealousy,
That bitterness, that ridicule.

Or Raspberry Beret by Prince. Such an upbeat song about a woman who dares to show her skin! And hair!

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her.

They mixed in some metal for a nice contrast. Songs like Fuck Your God by Deicide. I’m not including any of the lyrics because you can’t understand them! It seems like any metal song would work as well, unless they told them the title. That’s what I’d do. Play this song and say, “This is called Fuck Your God.” Then I’d play a bunch of different metal songs and say that all of them are called Fuck Your God.

Other artists who made the CIA playlist include AC/DC. Eminem, Dope, Metallica, 2Pac (Tupac), Christina Aguilera, Rage Against the Machine, and Matchbox 20.

I don’t know how much thought the CIA put into this list but I do know that they’ve been out done by a couple of 11-year-old boys.

Or would have been out done if it weren’t for this..I am linking to it against my better judgement. Imagine hours of hearing that and only that.

Things Banned by Leviticus?

3:17 -You must never eat any fat or blood. This is a permanent law for you, and it must be observed from generation to generation, wherever you live.

Is this just animal fat or any lipids? I think we need to be clear here. Either way, no well-marbled steak for you!

5:1 – If you are called to testify about something you have seen or that you know about, it is sinful to refuse to testify, and you will be punished for your sin.

No pleading the Fifth. Not only can you not lie, you can’t keep quiet.

10:6 – Then Moses said to Aaron and his sons Eleazar and Ithamar, “Do not show grief by leaving your hair uncombed or by tearing your clothes. If you do, you will die, and the LORD’s anger will strike the whole community of Israel. However, the rest of the Israelites, your relatives, may mourn because of the LORD’s fiery destruction of Nadab and Abihu.

Losing a loved one is no excuse for letting your personal grooming slide. Comb your hair!

11:9-10 – Of all the marine animals, these are ones you may use for food. You may eat anything from the water if it has both fins and scales, whether taken from salt water or from streams.

But you must never eat animals from the sea or from rivers that do not have both fins and scales. They are detestable to you. This applies both to little creatures that live in shallow water and to all creatures that live in deep water.

No shrimp, clams, lobsters, or crabs.

19:13 – Do not make your hired workers wait until the next day to receive their pay.

Payday, every day!

19:15 – Do not twist justice in legal matters by favoring the poor or being partial to the rich and powerful. Always judge people fairly.

If this is true, Hell should be full of politicians. Just knowing that should make you want to avoid it.

19:16 – Do not spread slanderous gossip among your people.

So, true gossip would be okay?

19:19 – You must obey all my decrees. “Do not mate two different kinds of animals. Do not plant your field with two different kinds of seed. Do not wear clothing woven from two different kinds of thread.

Poly-cotton blends are the work of the devil.

19:23 – When you enter the land and plant fruit trees, leave the fruit unharvested for the first three years and consider it forbidden. Do not eat it.

So I can eat the fruit in the fourth year?

19:24 – In the fourth year the entire crop must be consecrated to the LORD as a celebration of praise.

Damn. I mean, darn.

19:27 – Do not trim off the hair on your temples or trim your beards.

Wait, not trimming the hair on your temples will ban mullets right? Okay!

19:31 – Do not defile yourselves by turning to mediums or to those who consult the spirits of the dead.

This is good advice because there’s no such thing as ghosts! Mediums are scammers who are just taking advantage of grieving people.

19:32 – Stand up in the presence of the elderly, and show respect for the aged.

This used to just be good manners. Young people stood up to show respect for older people, gentlemen stood to show respect for ladies. Now you’re lucky if other people look up from their phone when they talk to you. (I love smartphones, but can’t stand rude people.)

25:23 – The land must never be sold on a permanent basis, for the land belongs to me. You are only foreigners and tenant farmers working for me.

For not being able to own land, mankind has fought a lot of wars over it.
